Wilson, the Fed, and the End of a Free America: Part 1

Stemming originally from a commenting conversation I had with Mike Powers about the man in days long past, as well as the recent attention he has garnered in the opinionated-media like Glenn Beck, I'm going to express my opinion of Woodrow Wilson's Presidency.

Having gained praise from the Left for his economic plans and his furtherance of globalist agendas, and having gotten rebuked for his policies by the Right, I thought I'd center this post on Wilson's own words:

"A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men who, even if their action be honest and intended for the public interest, are necessarily concentrated upon the great undertakings in which their own money is involved and who necessarily, by very reason of their own limitations, chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom." ~Woodrow Wilson, 1913, quote from his book The New Freedom.

He was speaking of the newly incepted Federal Reserve, which is not only un-Constitutional, but is no more "federal" than Federal Express.

The implications of the Federal Reserve not being federal are more than might be at first thought.

Whether Congress authorizes the monetary powers of the Federal Reserve or not, the fact remains that they have no Constitutional powers to do anything, rendering them a private entity; therefore, what you call "dollar bills" (if you would pull one out and look at the top) are actually "FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES", holding no value, intrinsic or attributed, other that that of de facto imposition by the Federal Reserve.

Furthermore, as it is a private entity, the monetary power in these United States is not in the hands of elected representatives of the people, but appointed officials in the Fed's Board of Governors.

Since our monetary system is not only run but based on un-Constitutional powers, is it any wonder we're going under? What does the Constitution say about who makes the money?

"The Congress shall have power... To coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures;... No state shall... make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts" ~U.S. Constitution

Now, today we have little Timmy Giethner testifying before Congress, when asked where it is in the Constitution that he and the Fed get their power, he responds that their power comes from the Congress.

News for ya, Timmy: Congress doesn't get the last say in government!

Why do you rarely hear anyone complaining about how China is practically our banker and monetary backer? Makes me sick!!!!!

And I hope Lassie ignores little Timmy when he falls down the well. I don't know exactly what that means, but it just sounds good.

Because we don't want anyone to think we're in financial trouble, do we?

We're only fifty hugillion dollars in debt, with another 2 drakillion dollars worth of loans that will never be repaid.

If Timmy fell into a well, I'd board it up.

(So no one else would fall in, of course!)

Well there went my respect for Woodrow Wilson. Too bad that the first Southern born and bred president since before the war should turn out so bad.
What do you think of William Jennings Bryan, his secretary of state? "Christians desire that their children shall be taught all the sciences, but they do not want them to lose sight of the Rock of Ages while they study the age of the rocks; neither do they desire them to become so absorbed in measuring the distance between the stars that they forget Him who holds the stars in His hand."
-William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925)

Danke, Johann! ;-)

I have done little research into Bryan, unfortunately, but I will definitely get back to you on that.

Based on the provided quote, he seems like a really good guy!
