The following statement was made by Louis T. McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking Committee-Congressional Record, House pages 1295 and 1296 on June 10, 1932

Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government Board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. The depredations and the iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks acting together have cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States; has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the maladministration of that law by which the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.

There is no surprise that the leader of Isreal will do what he thinks is right for his country, no matter what other leaders think. He must protect his own people and his own country and he will!

He’s in big trouble and he’s trying to change his image by touting this fed bill. We’ll see soon enough how far it goes.

You can thank them for this huge financial bubble that we’ve been in for the past decade. I say end the Fed and return us back to honest money that can’t be inflated away..
