Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed Bill
Overwhelmingly Passes in the House
July 25, 2012
Ron Paul’s bill to audit the Federal Reserve has passed overwhelmingly in the House. It cleared a suspension of House ruled requiring a two-thirds vote. The final vote was 327 to 98 and all but one Republican and 89 Democrats voted yes. The bill had more than 274 cosponsors and faced strong opposition by Democrats and the Federal Reserve.
The legislation will allow auditors to conduct in-depth audits of the private bankster cartel’s monetary policy operations.
“The agreement granted the Government Accountability Office broad authority to examine the operations of the Fed and to require additional disclosures from the central bank, including examinations of the Fed’s discount window and its purchases and sales of government securities,” the Washington Post reports this afternoon.

Ron Paul’s Political Legacy
Will Be Decided TODAY
Will Paul’s bill to audit “high exalted priesthood” Federal Reserve pass today?
July 25, 2012
Wednesday the 25th of July is the day that libertarian Congressman Ron Paul’s political legacy will be written, as the House votes on his bill to audit the Federal Reserve.
In order to pass, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, H.R. 459, needs two-thirds of the House to vote in favor. That equates to around 292 votes.
Last month, a bipartisan vote in the House Oversight Committee was almost completely unanimous in approving the bill, advancing it to the House floor.
The bill has 270 co-sponsors, including nearly four dozen Democrats, and insiders believe that every Republican representative will support the legislation, meaning that barring some major flip flopping, the bill will be successfully passed.

In addition to calling for war crime prosecutions against NATO for killing Libyan civilians, Rep. Dennis Kucinich wants to know if the CIA had a hand in the effort to overthrow Gaddafi and install al-Qaeda.
“Was the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency involved in planning for regime change prior to events in February and March in Benghazi? Did the CIA and its assets have a role in fomenting a civil war?” Kucinich writes on his House web page.
The CIA has a long history of overthrowing regimes and leaders disfavored by the global elite. In the past, the CIA worked on “the dark side” – as Dick Cheney might put it – and tried to hide its participation in violent coups and assassinations. Since September 11, 2001, and the subsequent war on terror, however, the agency has worked out in the open and without pretense or explanation. It has not bothered to cover up its rendition program – its global kidnapping program – and has conducted an illegal war in Pakistan’s tribal region that makes headlines every couple weeks or so.
On March 30, the New York Times announced the CIA’s “clandestine” effort to insert operatives in Libya to aid the so-called rebels, later exposed as al-Qaeda. At the time of the report, the operatives had been in the country for several weeks.
In addition to the CIA, operatives from MI6 and British intelligence were present, according to the Times: “British officials said that dozens of British special forces and MI6 intelligence officers are working inside Libya. The British operatives have been directing airstrikes from British jets and gathering intelligence about the whereabouts of Libyan government tank columns, artillery pieces and missile installations, the officials said.”
