Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Herman Cain Caught Lying

This is the digital age, people. If you say something on a national radio program, it will be taped and archived, and probably You-tubed. This is why I try to be very careful with my facts on here, because I don't like being made a fool or damaging my credibility by jumping the gun. I'm not saying it can't or won't happen, but I try to take everything with a grain of salt.

There was a debate last night held by the Bloomberg channel, owned by multi-billionare globalist Michael Bloomberg, moderated by Bilderburg attendee Charlie Rose, and financially sponsored by Peter Peterson, former president of the Council on Foreign Relations. Get the picture? This debate was practically in globalist HQ. But former Kansas City Federal Reserve Chairman Herman Cain was woefully unprepared to answer an inevitable question from Ron Paul, arch enemy of fiat money and the unconstitutional counterfeiters at the Fed, which went thusly:

Mr. Cain, in the past you have been rather critical of any of us who would want to audit the Fed. You have said -- you've used pretty strong terms, that we were ignorant and that we didn't know what we are doing, and therefore, there was no need for an audit anyway, because if you had one, you're not going to find out anything, because everybody knows everything about the Fed, But now that we have found and we have gotten an audit, we have found out an awful lot on how special businesses get bailed out -- Wall Street, the banks, and special companies, foreign governments. And you said that you advise those of us who were concerned, and you belittled -- you say call up the Federal Reserve and just ask them. ... Do you still stick by this, that that this is frivolous, or do you think it's very important? Sixty-four percent of the American people want a full audit of the Fed on a regular basis.
Cain responded:
You have misquoted me. I did not call you or any of your people ignorant. I don't know where that came from, You've gotta be careful of the stuff you get off the Internet.
Um, does that include clips from your own radio show (at the bottom) where you say the following:
Some people say that we ought to audit the Fed. Here's what I do know. The Federal Reserve already has so many internal audits it's ridiculous. I don't know why people think we're gonna learn this great amount of information by auditing the Federal Reserve. I think a lot of people are calling for this audit of the Federal Reserve because they don't know enough about it. There's no hidden secrets going on in the Federal Reserve to my knowledge.


  1. Lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.
  2. Lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular: "ignorant of astronomy".

Ouch. wow, just wow. Our wealth is being pumped out at a record rate and this guy, who was in the "system" is totally clueless how it works. With our economy teetering on the edge, do you want this blatant ignorance or disregard for reality running the show, to the extent the cartel will allow of course?


  1. There is something wrong with every individual in the present GOP field. **sigh**

  2. That's the because the Establishment is stacking the deck up with their peeps.

  3. Ouch.. good one R.. Will link tomorrow.

  4. I know the Fed won't show it's balance sheet. Maybe it is national security, maybe not, but the fact that they won't show it means it is significant. And by significant, I mean IMMENSELY DAMAGING. I think we'd be awfully P*ed to see that sucker and what (as in worthless paper) has really been transferred from the banks to the private sector that was stolen from them and that they'll be paying for for generations.

    I could be wrong.

  5. By the way I just took a poll, and said I would vote for Michele Bachmann in the primary, and my #2 pick is Ron Paul. fwiw

  6. Thanks for checking in Bunker!

    Nice to know where you stand, Kid. I think everyone who has been working on this Audit the Fed business is pretty much agreed that we'll only get the full audit by prying it from their dead cold hands.

  7. My grammar could have been a little better there. I certainly believe that we'll never see anything that resembles the truth on this (The Fed's actions and the incredible rape of America) in our lifetimes, and probably only theories will be offered in the following centuries.

    An animal backed into a corner will do unspeakable things and no doubt this is what the Fed is. Not to mention those in the EU who are now facing the brunt of these ripples across the pond.

  8. There is a difference between what he said and calling someone ignorant. It's the difference between saying "perhaps you lack some knowledge" and flat-out calling someone dumb.

    Cain was right, We don't know!

    The federal government has set up a purposely opaque system. Being an amateur Austrian, I understand the argument against a federal reserve and as far as I understand it, I agree with it.

    To go the next step and say someone is bad because they have participated in the federal reserve system is a stretch.

    If you want to blame someone, blame congress! They outsourced their responsibility to coin money and regulate its value to a private entity.

    If you really believe that being a part of "the system" really is that damning, then you must condemn every president since Wilson, including Reagan, and you only choice, the clear choice, is Ron Paul.

  9. I was willing to give Cain the benefit of the doubt on his Fed association for a long time. I don't like to get in a witch hunt mentality. But the comment he made above coupled with some other things I've read of his, like his endorsement of TARP as a great thing, tell me at best, he just doesn't GET it.

    Those Congressman who set up the Fed 100 years ago, many of which were on Christmas break and had no clue what was going on, are now dead. The men who cooked in up on Jekyll Island are also dead. Those who are currently in Congress are mostly on the take (if you watch how they get rewarded with Board of directorships after they retire, etc.)

    I do condemn just about every president since Wilson, with a few caveats. I spend a great deal of time on here writing about them and the interlock between the Wall Street banksters.

    So yes, my only clear choice is Ron Paul. It's remarkable that he's willing to take it on and expose this system. And he always does it in the most gentlemanly way possible.

  10. The country needs Ron Paul but we are not going to get him. What's our next best choice? It's not Romney! It might be Newt, but we won't get him either. Cain may be the best we can do for the presidency. We'll need to focus on the house and the Senate.

  11. I find your comment kind of paradoxical. One the one hand, if Ron Paul were given equal footing with the other contenders, he would be everyone's choice. We don't have a choice. All of the other candidates are working for the Fed. Cartel, which means they're playing on the same team as Obama.

    If Ron Paul doesn't make it, I'll write him in and buckle up for what's coming. Don't expect Ron Paul supporters to back up the Cartel's "conservative" choice. This is something many are taking for granted, that just won't be there come election day.

  12. Cain looked like a fool in this debate. I just hope he fades like Perry did, before New Hampshire.

  13. They might actually be prepping Gingrich next. He sounds like he's doing a Ron Paul impression with his Fed talk. The Establishment is very afraid of Ron Paul and are using demoralization techniques to talk him down. Why would they be afraid if he had no chance of winning?

  14. Who's "They?"

    Newt over-pandered, saying he would jail Frank and Dodd. It's fine for a blogger to say that, but what is his legal basis?

    Plus, Newt is too much of a pointy-headed intellectual to be a good leader

    Face it folks, we are all God's children and none of us is perfect. It's a flawed field.

  15. "They" would be the Federal Reserve Banking Cartel aka "special interests" aka The Powers That Be. Please check out my Wall Street series for a full accounting of who "they" are.

    Newt is a slimeball wrapped in swarm.

    I have a hard time finding flaws with Ron Paul now that I understand foreign policy. I totally understand where he is coming from after spending a LOT of time reading about who is handing down the military missions.

    Plus, I love how Ron Paul refuses to target individuals like you said with Newt jailing Frank and Dodd and Perry charging Bernacke with treason. He says he prefers to go after the principles and not the individuals involved. That's because he realizes we've got a system here that people get trapped in, and its the system that needs to be attacked. Plus, he just so honest! Would it kill us to elect an honest man for once?

  16. OK. I don't think their shadowy hand is working it's way here, in the republican primary. I just think that we are in unprecedented times and the field is very fluid.

    I too admire how Paul sticks to the facts and doesn't demonize everyone.

    I also understand his foreign policy, but he sucks at talking about it. I don't completely agree with it either.

    It turns me off when he lapses into language that the left uses, and I wonder if he does it as a dog whistle to them, or if he really feels that way, or if he is just inept in talking about it.

    Yes, he is an honest man.

  17. You are right about the fluidity and the unprecedented nature of things. That's what makes it exciting. If you want to see the fingers of the shadowy hand, try using a database like Muckety or The interlock between the big banks (who nurse at the Fed's titty) and Establishment candidates is pretty big.

    I don't think he thinks quite so deeply about the words he chooses, he just uses the words he knows. I doubt he spends a lot on focus groups to come up with Pavlovian words to generate reactions. Plus its hard to explain the problems and solution in the sound-bytes he's given. Since the media hasn't and won't school the public in the root causes of our problems, Paul alone has to educate and then lay out the solution. It would be nice if he could get some more coaching on the most concise way to do it, though.

    Doug Wead, former adviser to George Bush Sr said that Reagan similarly went through the media gauntlet and went directly to the people through ads, which is the Paul strategy at this time.
