Just one day after the most rancorous presidential debate in history, in which neither Goldman Sachs (R) nor Goldman Sachs (D) mentioned the role of the Federal Reserve in the economy, a 21-year-old Bangladeshi man allegedly attempted to detonate a "thousand-pound" bomb at the New York Federal Reserve, right off of Wall Street in Downtown Manhattan. Once the man had been subdued, New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly delivered the official story to a host of reporters..
"This individual came here with the expressed purpose of committing a terrorist act. He was motivated by Al-Qaeda," said Kelly. When asked whether citizens should be concerned, since the bomb was indeed a fake, Commissioner Kelly leaned on the official complaint:
Wait. The bomb was a fake? Yes. Quazi Mohammed Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis was aided by the FBI in his efforts to "destroy America." Authorities from both the NYPD and the FBI assisted Nafis in constructing the plot and provided the fake explosives. Weird, right?
Here are the top five lessons to be learned from the Federal Reserve bomb plot.
1. The FBI foiling their own terror plots is nothing new.
A year ago, former judge Andrew Napolitano asked, "Can the federal government take credit for saving us from a plot of its own creation?" and "Has the federal government kept us safe or does it just want us to think it has kept us safe?"
Seventeen out of the 20 plots to kill Americans in the pas 10 years have been interrupted by the Feds — because they were created by the Feds. The other three attempted attacks were stopped by diligent Americans. Of course, Commissioner Kelly used this instance of fake terror to rationalize the NYPD's state-of-the-art Domain Awareness System, which includes 3,000 CCTV cameras in NYC.
2. Why the Fed?
Why would the FBI and NYPD orchestrate a fake terror attack on the New York Fed? The official story claims that Al-Qaeda wannabe Nasir was initially going to target the NYSE, but had a change of heart. Now, forgive me for being skeptical, but after Emmy Award-winning journalist Amber Lyons came out and blew the whistle on CNN's war propaganda, I have difficulty believing known liars.
The Federal Reserve is a seemingly unimportant issue in the presidential debates and to most Americans. The fact that we all use Federal Reserve notes and we are all directly affected by the actions of the Fed does not change this. So, how does a 21-year-old Bangladeshi make the informed decision to "destroy America" by attacking the NY branch of the central bank? Was Nasir that learned of the American banking system to know that attacking the Fed would cause economic chaos?
What I suspect is that Nasir's attack, facilitated by the FBI and NYPD, was an attempt to smear those who oppose the Federal Reserve system and, of course, to continue the demonization of Muslims. As I stated in a previous article, the FBI labels those who believe the U.S. went bankrupt by going off the gold standard as "extremists." Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke defied 6,000 years of economic history by claiming that gold is not money. And the NYPD, who received a $4.6 million donation from JPMorgan Chase during the Occupy Wall Street protests, certainly has reasons to protect the Fed. JPM and the NY Fed have a very special relationship; Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan, has been a director of the NY branch of the Fed since 2007.
The Federal Reserve even has it's own private police force, with Glocks and patrol cars! Isn't that special?
3. What is the Federal Reserve?
The Federal Reserve system is a banking cartel. I'll let G. Edward Griffin, author of The Creature from Jekyll Island, take it from here:
4. The Federal Reserve facilitates the warfare state — the cause of terrorism.
In his book, End the Fed¸ Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) states, “It is no coincidence that the century of total war coincided with the century of central banking.”
This is true. The Federal Reserve fuels the warfare state, as well as the welfare state, through monetizing the U.S. government’s debt. Through the hidden tax of inflation, the U.S. empire has expanded dramatically since the inception of the Fed. As Austrian economist and philosopher Ludwig von Mises said, “One can say without exaggeration that inflation is an indispensable intellectual means of militarism. Without it, the repercussions of war on welfare would become obvious much more quickly and penetratingly; war-weariness would set in much earlier.”
Is there any doubt that without the all powerful Federal Reserve system and its control over the world reserve currency, the United States wouldn't be able to maintain it's empire?
Saddam Hussein announced that Iraq wanted its payments for its oil in euros instead of dollars in 2000. Three years later, based on lies, the U.S. invaded Iraq. Libya's Gaddafi made plans to introduce the gold dinar, a single African currency. How's Libya doing now?
These were both threats to dollar hegemony. Both were handled accordingly.
Maybe it's the "war on terror" that creates terrorism?
5. Who opposes the Federal Reserve?
The Federal Reserve should be opposed by everyone, except those who benefit from the banking cartel's counterfeiting, of course. There's a lot of profit to be made when you're best friends with a central bank that has a monopoly on money creation. In a previous article, I urged OWS to focus their energies against the Fed. We all should.
But using violence is not what we mean when we chant "End the Fed." The Federal Reserve will blow itself up anyways when the money is destroyed.
