Lew Rockwell: You Are Invited to the 1st Ron Paul's Hearing

That will be on Wednesday, February 9, 2011 at 10AM, in Room 2128 of the Rayburn House Office Building.


You Are Invited (Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., 2/7/2011)

The historic first hearing of Chairman Ron Paul's monetary policy committee, to expose the Fed as the prime creator of unemployment and so much human suffering, will take place at: 10:00AM on Wednesday, February 9, 2011, in Room 2128 of the Rayburn House Office Building, the main hearing room of the Financial Services Committee. The witnesses include the eloquent Austro-free-market stars Thomas DiLorenzo of Loyola College and Richard Vedder of Ohio University.

The Fed itself, and at least three big banks, lobbied against Ron's chairmanship. Republicans who share their fear of the truth worked with Paul Ryan, chairman of the "Budget" Committee, to schedule hearings with Bernanke at the exact same time as Ron's, to try to diminish the significance of Ron's. Ryan, btw, is the fair-haired boy of the Republican leadership who gave the boring response to Obama's boring State of the Empire Address. Like the Republican leadership, Ryan talks about cutting spending, but that is only a ruse. Ryan is a big-government neocon, and so naturally supported TARP, Bush's prescription drug welfare, his wars, and the empire.

I don't believe this insider trick will work against Ron, because his support comes not from the regime or the Republican leadership, but from the grassroots. I think the Paulians will pack Ron's hearings, and not only to show their support for him against the power elite. These hearings will have huge significance in the fight against the Fed, the fractional-reserve banksters, and other destroyers of our prosperity and freedom. It will also be a lot of fun!

Let's see... The Fed and TBTF Wall Street banks were lobbying against Ron Paul becoming the chairman of this subcommittee, along with mainstream Republicans. What can they do now to make the day miserable?

How about Ben Bernank instructing JP Morgue to sell sell sell those S&P500 mini futures? Let's blame Ron Paul for the resulting flash crash, and for dare asking the questions!
