Throughout history, holding public officials accountable for wrongdoing has been elusive even under the most moral regimes. As an ordinary practice, crime pays, especially in public office. Personal gain is an obvious offense. However, misdemeanors against specific persons, entire classes of people or even crimes against humanity are routinely committed in the normal course of administrating governments. Woefully, a universal remedy to prevent such a chronicle of depravity has never been applied to the bodypolitik.
When such violations of the public trust are perpetrated by non elected authoritarians, especially from a protected segment of the financial elite, the abuse of the people is supreme. How ludicrous that the endless struggle against establishing a central bank could have been so causally accepted just over a hundred years ago.
As any and every student of American Revolution knows, allowing the coinage and administration of currency to a private bank was an important factor in freeing the New World from the strangle hold of old empires. With the creation and treachery of a Christmas vote, the Federal Reserve took full control of the financial sector and placed the country on the inevitable path of totalitarian rule.
If a refresher course is needed, the Jackals of Jekyll Island – Federal Reserve Audit article illustrates the dire nature and consequences of the debt created money system that has impoverished our society. In the essay, Federal Reserve 100 Years of Failure the history of the banksters financial system is examined.
So what can be done to stop this monster of liberty destruction and monetary theft? First off the immediate remedy provided for the removal of reprehensible outlaws is impeachment. But before one assumes that impeachment is basically a legal procedure, it must be acknowledged the function of removal from entrusted and limited authority, means that impeachment is fundamentally a political act.
The Constitutional Rights Foundation describes that High Crimes and Misdemeanors can lead to impeachment.
The U.S. Constitution provides impeachment as the method for removing the president, vice president, federal judges, and other federal officials from office. The impeachment process begins in the House of Representatives and follows these steps:
- The House Judiciary Committee holds hearings and, if necessary, prepares articles of impeachment. These are the charges against the official
- If a majority of the committee votes to approve the articles, the whole House debates and votes on them
- If a majority of the House votes to impeach the official on any article, then the official must then stand trial in the Senate
- For the official to be removed from office, two-thirds of the Senate must vote to convict the official. Upon conviction, the official is automatically removed from office and, if the Senate so decides, may be forbidden from holding governmental office again.
Historically there are three examples of attempts to use the impeachment method to put forth a purging of governors of the Federal Reserve. The first was by Congressman Lindbergh: Articles of Impeachment Against Federal Reserve.
This Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this Act the invisible government by the Money Power, proven to exist by the Money Trust Investigation, will be legalized. The new law will create inflation whenever the trusts want inflation. From now on depressions will be scientifically created.” – Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr., 1913, on the Federal Reserve Act Charles Lindbergh Sr. – Congressional record – Feb 12, 1917
3126 Congressional Record Mr. LINDBERGH. Mr. Speaker and the House of Representatives, I, Charles A. Lindbergh, the undersigned, upon my responsibility as a Member of the House of Representatives, do hereby impeach:
P. G. Harding, governor
Paul M. Warburg, vice governor;
Adolf C. Miller
and Charles S. Hamlin
Probably the most famous effort was that of Congressman McFadden on the Federal Reserve Corporation Remarks in Congress, 1934 AN ASTOUNDING EXPOSURE.
“Resolve, That the Committee on the Judiciary is authorized and directed as a whole or by subcommittee, to investigate the official conduct of the Fed agents to determine whether, in the opinion of the said committee, they have been guilty of any high crime or misdemeanor which in the contemplation the Constitution requires the interposition of the Constitutional powers of the House. Such Committee shall report its finding to the House, together with such resolution or resolutions of impeachment or other recommendations as it deems proper.
By this time the actual cause behind the Great Depression was disclosed at a heavy personal risk as described by Robert Edward Edmondson (Publicist-Economist).
Commenting on Former Congressman Louis T. McFaddens’s “heart-failure sudden-death” on Oct. 3, 1936, after a “dose” of “intestinal flu,” “Pelley’s Weekly” of Oct. 14 said:
Now that this sterling American patriot has made the Passing, it can be revealed that not long after his public utterance against the encroaching powers of Judah, it became known among his intimates that he had suffered two attacks against his life. The first attack came in the form of two revolver shots fired at him from ambush as he was alighting from a cab in front of one of the Capital hotels. Fortunately both shots missed him, the bullets burying themselves in the structure of the cab.
“He became violently ill after partaking of food at a political banquet at Washington. His life was only saved from what was subsequently announced as a poisoning by the presence of a physician friend at the banquet, who at once procured a stomach pump and subjected the Congressman to emergency treatment.”
The most recent attempt was made by Rep. Gonzalez, Henry B. [D-TX-20] (Introduced 03/07/1985).
H.Res.101 – A resolution providing for the impeachment of Paul A. Volcker, Edward G. Boehne, Robert H. Boykin, E. Gerald Corrigan, Lyle E. Gramley, Karen N. Horn, Preston Martin, J. Charles Partee, Emmett J. Rice, Martha R. Seger, and Henry C. Wallich, as members of the Federal Open Market Committee.
By the time that this last impeachment resolution was introduced, most Americans were born well after the memory of the striking controversy that existed during the first half of this country’s history towards the threat of allowing a central bank to lend debt money into existence.
“Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.” — Fifth plank of the Communist Manifesto, 1848
It should be stipulated that for decades the Congress has not demonstrated the stomach to fulfill their Constitutional duties on the same level and scale as our Founding Father’s generation. A legislature that will not even authorize a full forensic audit of the Fed, much less pass an abolishment statute law, is not one brave enough to follow the lead of Iceland after the recapture of their financial institutions as seen in 26 bankers already sentenced to a combined 74 years in prison.
Make no mistake about it, the dubious circumstances and untimely demise of Congressman Louis T. McFadden is not lost on a political class of beggars who are dependent upon the financial contributions of the banking elite to be re-elected.
Nonetheless, the value of using the impeachment vehicle is not necessarily the removal of a Greenspan, a Bernanke or a Yellen. It is about developing the critical mass necessary to instill public awareness that the financial system of central banking is the quintessence and inevitable reason, for the cause of the coming economic collapse, which is unavoidable.
Impeachment is a small step towards the replacement of the malefic hell that the central bankers inflict as they squeeze America to the “consequences of defaulting on a desperate bargain”. “A pound of flesh” is just as germane today as when penned by Shakespeare.
Face the facts that the courts and the legal barrister class are essentially gatekeepers to protect the establishment. Relief from a rare judicial hearing is reliably overturned by a higher court. And there is no greater superpower center of corruption and control than the crony capitalism perversion that hijacked a free enterprise economy.
Much of this depraved derivative financial racket depends upon the domination of the Federal Reserve fraud of the national economy. This is a reality that most historians are unwilling to accept because the punitive penalties from crossing the “PC” Wall Street guardians of the Fed temple are too high to pay.
Unless a modern day Lindbergh emerges to carry on the fight, the next generation will be even more ignorant of the forbidden history that put into motion the demise of our country. Today impeachment is a threat that was fine to use against Richard Nixon but was wrong to try William Clinton. For once a true bi-partisan agreement can be forged to use impeachment against the true and real enemy, the Federal Reserve.
SARTRE is the pen name of James Hall, a reformed, former political operative. This pundit’s formal instruction in History, Philosophy and Political Science served as training for activism, on the staff of several politicians and in many campaigns. A believer in authentic Public Service, independent business interests were pursued in the private sector. As a small business owner and entrepreneur, several successful ventures expanded opportunities for customers and employees. Speculation in markets, and international business investments, allowed for extensive travel and a world view for commerce. He is retired and lives with his wife in a rural community. “Populism” best describes the approach to SARTRE’s perspective on Politics. Realities, suggest that American Values can be restored with an appreciation of “Pragmatic Anarchism.” Reforms will require an Existential approach. “Ideas Move the World,” and SARTRE’S intent is to stir the conscience of those who desire to bring back a common sense, moral and traditional value culture for America. Not seeking fame nor fortune, SARTRE’s only goal is to ask the questions that few will dare … Having refused the invites of an academic career because of the hypocrisy of elite’s, the search for TRUTH is the challenge that is made to all readers. It starts within yourself and is achieved only with your sincere desire to face Reality. So who is SARTRE? He is really an ordinary man just like you, who invites you to join in on this journey.
