JDA: The Dirty Fed Who Tried (And Failed) To Steal Christmas

Junior Deputy Accountant points to another small victory against Leviathan.

Note what backed the Fed globobankers off.

"By any means necessary" means exactly that -- just as there are no limits on the noisy end of the action spectrum, freedom-lovers should not neglect the quieter side either.

There is no substitute for victory.

In big things and small.

I almost posted a pessimistic rant here.

But, nah, it's Christmas.

Victory by any means.

Oh what the heck, mini-rant:

I will point out that while this was a tactical win, it is a strategic LOSE.

Our master was merciful this time. Should we pay attention to only the "merciful" part and ignore the "master" aspect?

The pecking order is established. Years ago, this would not have been attempted. Tomorrow, next year, soon, it will be reality. Overton window and all.

But for now, you're absolutely right, we should enjoy what victories we are allowed. They will become fewer and further between.

My comment left @ JDA:

I'm a bit baffled by a couple of things here...

(1) How does the Fed - a PRIVATE BANK - have any "jurisdiction" to decide whether another bank is violating some law? Accounting principles? OK. Loan terms? Likewise... But law?

As an ancillary point, if the Fed is enforcing their own "code of conduct" as opposed to law, how does 1A apply to a private banking corporation? Are they not entitled to decide what's appropriate and what's not?

Don't get me wrong. I'm all for zealously guarding *ALL* liberty from tyrants -- and by WHATEVER means necessary -- but THIS ONE leaves me confused...

If the alleged authority is born of Law, where 1A would clearly apply, why is it being "enforced" by the (not at all Federal) Fed?

OTOH, if it's private, how does 1A apply?

Please remove the blasphemous picture. It isn't appreciated. I'm sure you can get the point across without it. You're supposed to be one of the good guy, remember?

The bank should have told the Fed to go Fed themselves.

Meanwhile, fedgov fails in one of its actual duties. Ford Windstar vans have bad axles which have been breaking and causing accidents for a long time, but Ford was never called on it. People died. It finally made the news tonight when a man was killed three weeks before getting the recall notice.
Big Industry and Big Government have "an understanding."

There ARE no small acts of tyranny. Anything that diminishes human dignity must be resisted, or the lesson is "Go bigger next time."

A couple of comments:

Longtime: Done -- although I think the picture, given America's actual worship habits, was within the spirit of fair comment.

Justin: I know. But even I need a glimmer of good news once in a while. As I told JDA, the Reg B story added to my gloom. Its reversal lifted at least that piece of the burden.

Is it the FCC's turn yet? I believe they decided Tuesday that 'Net "Neutrality" -- meaning the opposite of neutrality, total government oversight of Internet, cable and digital TV -- is a go.

"given America's actual worship habits"


You're right. Even though I'm still upset over the whole shebang, I cracked a bit of a smile over this one.

That's saying a lot, all things considered. Usually, only my kids and wife make me smile these days.

And Islamic Rage Boy. :-)

No more pessimism from me until Monday. I'll try really hard, I promise.

I am going to have some really interesting resolutions this year.

Does anyone else find it totally ironic that the Fed has the audacity to go there when their own filthy money comes conveniently stamped with "In God We Trust"?

You missed the point. Laws are for little people. ;^)


P.S. "Dedicated Dad" sees through the fraud also. We are no longer operating under the rule of law but are subject to the arbitrary whim of unelected officials.

This has to stop. Otherwise, a bloody conflict looms to determine who is strongest.

WC Varones was kind enough to write a letter to Kansas City Fed President Thomas Hoenig reminding him that there is a such thing as the "First Amendment". Maybe this is the first Mr Hoenig is hearing of such a thing so it was sweet of WCV to reach out and school him on the matter.

@ Dedicated Dad:

"How does the Fed - a PRIVATE BANK - have any "jurisdiction" to decide whether another bank is violating some law? Accounting principles? OK. Loan terms? Likewise... But law?"

I think that you're missing a point here. If the bank was truly private, the Fed would have no jurisdiction. However, Payne County Bank is a member of the Fed. [Federal Reserve ID: 455150] It signed an agreement to become part of the Fed, and presumably it derives some benefit from being a member bank. Like all contracts, it is a 2-way street, so it gave something up - in this case, it must abide by Reg. B. THAT is why this happened.

Now, don't get me wrong: I'm no fan of the Fed at all, quite to the contrary. On its watch, our currency has depreciated by 96% in value, and I think that a very persuasive case could be made that its recent actions have all but guaranteed that the US Dollar will not only cease to be the worldwide reserve currency, but may well become worthless before too many years pass. The effects of this will be horrendous not only for this generation, but for generations to come, and for that I cannot ever forgive people like Greenspan, Bernanke, Turbo Tax Timmy, and all the rest in positions of power for the last 10-20 years. I also happen to think that its interpretation of Reg. B in this particular case was ridiculous. I'm Jewish, and I have no problem with others celebrating whatever holiday that they'd like too. Christmas is fine by me, just so long as no one tries to force me to celebrate it, and doing what this bank did comes no where close in deed. In spirit, I don't think that such a thought was even on anyone's radar screen.

This is all a result of this PC bullshit getting out of hand. I can only imagine (with a big smile on my face) what the reaction to something like this would have been when Ike was President. Methinks that one or more Board members of the KC Fed would've been looking for new jobs, just for starters.
