This Tuesday, the Senate Banking, Housing, & Urban Affairs Committee will hold a hearing titled "Federal Reserve Reform."
Unfortunately, Audit the Fed (S. 264), despite its massive popularity among the American people, isn't on the agenda.
But that doesn't mean Audit the Fed won't be discussed at Tuesday's hearing.
Janet Yellen's cronies – such as Democrat Elizabeth Warren and Republican Bob Corker – are sure to use this hearing as a platform to bash Audit the Fed.
And because S. 264 isn’t officially on the agenda, there won’t be an advocate specifically for Audit the Fed on the witness panel.
You see, right after Senator Rand Paul reintroduced Audit the Fed, the Fed launched an unprecedented PR campaign against the bill ...
And the Fed’s allies on Wall Street and K Street, among politicians (who think the needs of the Fed outweigh the needs of the American people), and in the establishment press are aiding it.
You can be sure the press will be quick to report if any of the witnesses aren’t prepared to fend off hostile questions.
The Senate Banking Committee has heard from the Fed and its allies . . .
Now they need to hear from you!
That's why C4L is launching a "Bring it to the Floor" Blitz designed to FLOOD the Senate offices of Chairman Richard Shelby and other members of the Banking, Housing, & Urban Affairs Committee with over 50,000 petitions URGING them to pass Audit the Fed through Committee and bring it to the floor for an up or down vote.
As you'll see, there's a special counter on our "Bring it to the Floor" Audit the Fed page showing the progress we're making toward our goal.
Weak-kneed Members of Congress are looking for watered-down compromise legislation that leaves much of the Federal Reserve’s core operations off limits to the American people.
And Fed Chair Janet Yellen is living up to her promise to “forcefully” oppose passage of Audit the Fed - predicting Chicken Little horrors if the Federal Reserve’s actions are ever exposed!
In fact, while delivering her semi-annual report on monetary policy this past week on Capitol Hill, Janet Yellen made national headlines when she boldly declared that she "strongly OPPOSES Audit the Fed."
And so-called “conservative” Senator Bob Corker aided her in her efforts by tossing Yellen a series of softballs and parroting Federal Reserve propaganda.
You and I can’t take this situation lightly - especially considering the massive stranglehold Federal Reserve officials have on the entire U.S. economy.
With your help today, you and I can break that stranglehold.
I can't even begin to tell you how much of an impact your signed petitions will make in forcing the Senate to vote on Audit the Fed.
Remember, it was just this past Congress when the House Financial Services Committee held a hearing on monetary policy in honor of the Fed's 100th Anniversary.
That hearing also didn't include Audit the Fed on the agenda.
But C4L members and supporters stepped up and answered the call - generating tens of thousands of petitions to House Leadership DEMANDING a vote on Audit the Fed.
Your efforts paid off, and in September, Audit the Fed passed the U.S. House with 333 out of 435 votes!
Unfortunately, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid refused to allow so much as a vote on Audit the Fed.
But the American people FIRED Harry Reid as U.S. Senate Majority Leader last November, removing a MAJOR roadblock to auditing the Federal Reserve.
Today, if you and I can generate the same kind of pressure on the Senate that led to passage of Audit the Fed in the House, I'm confident we can succeed in getting a Senate vote on Audit the Fed and even passing it.
You see, our nation is now over $18 TRILLION in debt. Fed banksters continue to create money like there’s no tomorrow, and warnings are mounting about yet another massive economic stock market bubble that’s about to burst!
Average, hardworking Americans are feeling the pinch from soaring food prices.
Most workers’ real wages haven’t budged in a decade or more when adjusted for inflation - even using the federal government’s rosy statistics.
Yet Wall Street fat cats are living high on the hog as the Dow Jones reaches new highs on Federal Reserve-created phony prosperity.
News reports have revealed that Federal Reserve leakers gave Wall Street insiders with the right “connections” a sneak-peek on the Fed’s internal deliberations - giving them a front-row seat at the money trough.
Not only that, but secret audio recordings released last fall seem to prove that the Federal Reserve’s so-called “bank examiners” helped sweep evidence of questionable big bank behavior under the rug — behavior that could help lead to another taxpayer-financed big bank bailout.
Truthfully, I don’t know how much more of this madness our country can take.
If we don’t rein in the Federal Reserve now, every last shred of American prosperity could be wiped out!
That’s why I believe it’s absolutely critical you and I FORCE Congress to Audit the Fed and show the American people the Federal Reserve System leads to:
*** Ever-expanding Big Government boondoggles like “ObamaCare.”
Now that politicians have figured out the Fed will just print money out of thin air to pay the bills if taxing and borrowing can’t make ends meet, the floodgates are wide open for even more of the statists’ utopian plans;
*** Constant economic crises.
The recent housing crisis and the resulting chaos is just one example of an economic bubble created by centrally planned interest rates and money manipulation;
*** The destruction of the middle class.
As food, housing, medical care, and education costs soar, everyone who is NOT on the government dole is forced to make do with less as the value of their money sinks;
*** Currency destruction.
History shows us that riots, violence, and full-scale police states can result when people finally realize their money isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on and REFUSE to accept it.
Yet those who leech off the Federal Reserve System don’t care.
They don’t care that they’re sinking our nation into economic ruin - so long as they keep raking in the dough from the Fed’s corruption and cronyism.
Of course, this fight won't be easy - nor cheap.
After all, the Federal Reserve - backed by the nation's printing presses - has virtually unlimited funds at their disposal.
And believe me, they're doing everything in their power to KILL Audit the Fed.
Right now, Federal Reserve apologists are swarming Capitol Hill and hitting full force in the media, saying you and I just don’t know what’s good for us.
And the banksters’ fat-cat lobbyists aren't far behind - surely promising loads of goodies to members of Congress who vote to KILL Audit the Fed.
That's why you and I must TURN UP THE HEAT on the Senate like never before to FORCE Audit the Fed to the floor for an up or down vote.
I can’t explain what a travesty it would be to watch the Fed wriggle off the hook after how far we’ve come!
But I also have to face facts regarding what it will take to achieve victory.
You see, money is tight. Too tight.
That’s why, in addition to your signed petitions, I must be able to count on your generosity today.
So please chip in $10 or more to help make sure C4L has the resources to generate over 50,000 petitions into the offices of Senate Banking Committee members and mobilize millions of Americans to demand the Senate pass Audit the Fed.
Only our members’ generous support will allow us to do what's needed to win this battle.
