  • C4L’s John Tate in the Daily Caller: Audit the Fed, Bernanke confirmation can wait

    When Ron Paul reintroduced his bill in February 2009 to audit the Federal Reserve, conventional wisdom predicted that the legislation would once again fail to gain any traction. But conventional wisdom also failed to predict the economic crisis. In less than a year since its introduction, H.R. 1207, which Campaign for Liberty refers to as …

  • Vote the Rascal Out

    Surprisingly, the only truly bipartisan efforts in Congress this year have been directed towards the Federal Reserve. With Dr. Paul’s H.R. 1207 garnishing near complete support in the House, and Bernie Sanders’ S. 604 doing well in the Senate, the elite at the Fed are more nervous than ever. Now, several Senators have openly announced …

  • Bernanke’s “Remedy”

    In this Washington Post article, Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, makes the case for “good reform” for the Fed. Covertly aiming the whole article at the two bills that would expose the Federal Reserve’s secretive policies, H.R. 1207 and S. 604, Bernanke offers more of the same rather than real reform. Bernanke writes, …

  • Fed Alert, Part 2

    Big news on the Fed came out this morning — Bernanke will be renominated, a union cheif has been appointed to head the NY Fed, and Bloomberg won its suit against the Fed calling for release of previously undisclosed information.  Here’s a new video on the subject from Shelly Roche (who says H.R. 1207 has …

  • McCain, Feingold to Audit the Fed???

    Yes, you read right — it wasn’t some twisted dream: McCain and Feingold are on board for yet another bill, but on this one? Seriously? Not in a million years did I expect to see those names appear on the list of cosponsors to HR 1207’s companion bill in the Senate, S.604! Below are the …

  • H.R. 1207 up to 222 Co-Sponsors

From the Ron Paul’s Congressional Office: Congressman Ron Paul’s Federal Reserve Transparency Act, HR 1207, has reached and surpassed the level of 218 cosponsors in the House of Representatives, which means it is now cosponsored by a majority …
