Audit the Fed

Audit the Fed, Congressman Amash supports Ron Paul


Ron Paul's "Audit the Fed" bill, H.R. 459, will be before the full House for a vote this week, as early as today. According to OpenCongress, there are NO groups that oppose this bill. 


According to FreedomWorkz, HR 459 will be on the House floor on Tues, Wed or Thurs. You may click here to find your representative.


The Federal Reserve has never been fully audited since its implementation in 1914. Since that time, the dollar has lost over 90% of its value and interest-rate manipulation has created increasingly larger financial bubbles, like the most recent housing fiasco. When these bubbles burst, the middle-class gets burned - losing pensions, savings, and even homes.


It is just as important to note that transparency and accountability go hand-in-hand. In 2010, the Fed was subject to a partial audit thanks to the efforts of millions of activists like you who demanded to know what their government was hiding. The revelations of that audit are startling; the Fed printed at least $16 trillion out of thin air. Some of the world's largest, most profitable companies were bailed out, along with countless domestic and foreign banks, and even foreign governments. H.R. 459 will finally open the books on the Fed.


Call your Congressman and tell them to pass H.R. 459 TODAY. The truth is the central planners at the Fed are never going to stop destroying the value of the dollar and bailing out their friends on their own. It is up to us to hold Congress' feet to the fire by demanding that the secrecy and the bailouts stop. In the last 5 years, you've seen the negative effects of the Fed's inflationary policies, and we cannot afford the cronyism any longer. YOU have the power to stop the bailouts. Please join me in telling Congress that auditing the Fed is non-negotiable and H.R. 459 must pass.

Regional Super PAC to Push Light Rail in Virginia Beach


Light Rail Super PAC 
Light Rail Super PAC

A Super PAC, "Move Hampton Roads" is revigorated to push light rail in Virginia Beach. According to HRT, Move Hampton Roads was used in 2007 by the Hampton Roads Partnership to build support for the regional transportation authority. Later, this Authority was deemed unconstitutional by the state Supreme Court. According to HRT, the Super PAC has raised $300K to push light rail in Virginia Beach. 


Several public servants serve on the Executive Committee of the Hampton Roads Partnership to include Hampton Mayor Molly Ward, Newport News Mayor McKinley Price and York Chair Donald Wiggins. According to their website, the Executive Committee meets July 20th and again August 17th but no meeting minutes are published. The involvement of our Mayors, HRP and this Super PAC is unknown. HRP President Dana Dickens states that "Virginia Beach light-rail advocates approached him about reviving the PAC to build support for the upcoming light-rail referendum." 


According to the Newport News Comprehensive Plan, and Hampton Community Plan, light rail is a vision of the future of both locales. Our public servants currently serve on an executive committee that is running a Super PAC to push light rail?


The building of light rail is nearly always overbudget and the daily cost is unsustainable. If it wasn't, they would not need public funding.
