    Then congress would control the economy and do we really want that.

    Harry Reid called for audit of Federal Reserve during 2010 campaign [VIDEO]

    Published: 3:00 PM 07/26/2012
    By Alex Pappas

    Video has emerged of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid calling for an audit of the Federal Reserve as recently as his tight 2010 re-election race in Nevada.

    This will likely energize those pushing Reid to allow a vote in the Senate on Federal Reserve audit legislation, which overwhelmingly passed through the House Wednesday.

    But even though the House passed legislation calling for an audit Wednesday, Reid’s office has signaled that the legislation won’t be brought to a vote in the Senate.

    But, but, but Harry you wanted this in 2010. Did you just say that to get re-elected at the mid-term? Maybe he's just gettin senile and can't remember what he said....we do. Watch at the 7:27 mark Harry says he's called for audits of the Federal Reserve, why would he block them now.



    I simply can't think of a better reason to take Harry from Senate Majority Leader to Senate Minority salt pillar. Why is it acceptable to campaign saying one thing then when you get elected do the opposite?

    The FED is a private central bank, stockholder owned. Federal Reserve CORPORATION. The names of the stockholders have never been released and are a closely guarded secret. Perhaps an audit would reveal the names of those stockholders. Likely to be the very wealthy from the year 1913 and not necessarily US Americans. These are the people who got Woodrow Wilson elected and he paid them back with the Private Central Bank called the Federal Reserve Corporation. Jekyll Island. Just a note for research. BIS is the Bank of International Settlements, a.k.a. The Reserve Bank of Reserve Banks. Don't think neutrality when studying this bank, but the ability to profit from both sides of a war. Do your homework. Who owns BIS?

    Hopefully it passes the Senate and Obama signs it.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I believe the FED is owned by private banks - not individuals.

    Hopefully the Senate will have a enough "stand-up" Senators and get this passed.

    There are 12 Federal Reserve Banks around the Country, but those are also Corporations and who are their stockholders? All Corporations are "fictitious entities" and are stockholder owned, ergo these banks have major stockholders. I always heard the the New York Reserve and 4 others were Rockefeller family banks. It doesn't make any difference but why such secrecy about the ownership? About 100 years of secrecy. Democracy, Free Country, and all that?
