What is the Federal Reserve? How did it come into existence? Is it part of the federal government? How does it create money? Why is the public kept in the dark about these important matters? In this feature-length documentary film, The Corbett Report explores these important questions and pulls back the curtain on America’s central bank.
Did you know that every time the Federal Reserve (Fed) prints money (also known as quantitative easing), they are stealing your wealth without your knowledge. Ever since the Fed started printing fiat money, they have been creating money with little or no value. When this worthless money is circulated into the economy, it devalues the original currency and therefore it causes inflation, which is nothing more than a hidden tax on the public.
Every decade or so, a group of like-minded people will invent something so revolutionary that it will change our life and how the world operates. The last time something that incredible happened was during the invention of the internet. Fast forward to 2014 and we are living in a time when incredible changes are occurring so fast that they are happening right in front of our eyes. Whether we are aware of these great changes or not, they will alter how we view our financial, religious, educational and political systems. One of them is known as the Bitcoin Revolution
The rumors have been confirmed; President Obama’s named CFR member Stanley Fischer as vice chairman of the Federal Reserve was made official on January 10. At the same time he announced Fischer’s appointment, the president also named CRF members Lael Brainard and Jerome Powell to positions as governors on the seven-member Federal Reserve Board. Fed Chairman Janet Yellen (CFR) and Vice Chairman Fischer also serve as governors.
As the Federal Reserve celebrates its centennial, protests sprung up at all 12 Fed braches around the country on Monday. The day of action, called “FedUp 100,” calls attention to what protesters say is an institution that “exercises power in complete darkness.” The group also calls for the Fed to go from private to public by September 2014. Ameera David talks to Harrison Schultz, a FedUp 100 activist, and RT correspondent Perianne Boring about the planned protests and what they hope to accomplish.
Today the U.S. Federal Reserve has 100 candles to blow out on its birthday cake. Founded to prevent boom and bust economics, in its first century it’s faced many challenges – from double-digit inflation to near-depression. So on its anniversary, it seems the right time to ask – how is the FED actually doing? RT’s Marina Portnaya looks for the answer.
100 years ago, this December, the United States Congress created a central bank today, we know it as the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States. What most people don’t know is that the bank isn’t a federal entity and candidly, it really has nothing in reserves. Is the Federal Reserve good for the United States? Is it even possible to get rid of it?
The first step toward truth is to be informed.
Ron Paul: We know that the Federal Reserve continues to strengthen the collusion between banks and politicians. We know that the Fed’s inflationary monetary policy continues to reap profits for Wall Street while impoverishing Main Street. And we know that the current monetary regime is teetering on a precipice. One hundred years is long enough. End the Fed!
Ron Paul: A quick glance at the latest unemployment numbers shows that Qualitative Easing (QE) is not benefiting the average American. It is increasingly obvious that the Fed’s post-2008 policies of bailouts, money printing, and bond buying benefited the big banks and the politically-connected investment firms. QE is such a blatant example of crony capitalism that it makes Solyndra look like a shining example of a pure free market!
Filmmaker and author G Edward Griffin talks about the history of the secret cabal known as the ‘Federal Reserve’ — how it came about, what it’s done and what we can do about it. He also offers his opinion on Bitcoin and Carbon Credit schemes like those being offered by ‘Blood & Gore’.
The institutional framework of a world government composed of Western European and American states remains far more potent than we like to imagine, even beyond the security apparatus revealed by Snowden’s documents. For example, in every major free trade agreement since NAFTA, U.S. courts have been subordinated to international tribunals, which operate according to rules laid out either by the World Trade Organization, a division of the World Bank, or by a division of the United Nations known as UNCITRAL (the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law). These tribunals rule on consumer, labor, and environmental questions – not just trade. And they are trans-national, much as the supply chains of Apple, Ford, Toyota, or any other multi-national corporation are, or the technology that Google, Microsoft, or IBM promote all over the world.
