People’s Uprising Against the Empire
first hearing of Chairman Ron Paul's monetary policy committee,
to expose the Fed as the prime creator of unemployment and so
much human suffering, will take place at: 10:00AM on Wednesday,
February 9, 2011, in Room 2128 of the Rayburn House Office Building,
the main hearing room of the Financial Services Committee. Rayburn
is across the street from the US Capitol at Independence Ave.
and South Capitol St., Washington, DC 20003. The witnesses include
the eloquent Austro-free-market stars Thomas DiLorenzo of Loyola
College and Richard Vedder of Ohio University. This great event
is open to the public.
The Fed itself,
and at least three big banks, lobbied against Ron's chairmanship.
Republicans who share their fear of the truth worked with Paul
Ryan, chairman of the "Budget" Committee, to schedule
hearings with Bernanke at the exact same time as Ron's, to try
to diminish the significance of Ron's. Ryan, btw, is the fair-haired
boy of the Republican leadership who gave the boring response
to Obama's boring State of the Empire Address. Like the Republican
leadership, Ryan talks about cutting spending, but that is only
a ruse. Ryan is a big-government neocon, and so naturally supported
TARP, Bush's prescription drug welfare, his wars, and the empire.
I don't believe
this insider trick will work against Ron, because his support
comes not from the regime or the Republican leadership, but from
the grassroots. I think the Paulians will pack Ron's hearings,
and not only to show their support for him against the power elite.
These hearings will have huge significance in the fight against
the Fed, the fractional-reserve banksters, and other destroyers
of our prosperity and freedom. It will also be a lot of fun!
