By mid morning on Monday, September 17, as Occupy Wall Street protesters marched around the perimeter of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, all signs that an FRPD (Federal Reserve Police Department) existed had disappeared. The FRPD patrol cars and law enforcement officers had been replaced by NYPD patrol cars and officers. That decision may have been made to keep from drawing attention to a mushrooming new domestic police force that most Americans do not know exists. Quietly, without fanfare or Congressional hearings, the USA Patriot Act in 2001 bestowed on the 12 privately owned Federal Reserve Banks, domestic policing powers

The police officers are technically known as FRLEO, short for Federal Reserve Law Enforcement Officer. The system has its own police academies for training, their own patch and badges, uniforms, pistols, rifles, police cars and the power to arrest coast to coast without a warrant. They have ranks of Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain and a recruitment ad campaign with the slogan: “It’s about respect and recognition from your peers. It’s you.” Source:http://www.alternet.org/economy/federal-reserve-privately-owned-banking-cartel-has-been-given-police-powers-glock-22s-and

You think a couple billion rounds of ammo is normal for DHS? Do you know approximately how many rounds were used in Iraq per year? We don’t know why even the Social Security Agency is armed, while our Border Agents patrol with bean bag guns. One Retired Army Major General says the Military in Iraq used a mere 70 MILLION rounds of ammunition per year.
“Compare that with the 1.4 Billion rounds of hollow point bullets that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ordered in March.” Maybe we are getting some history after all, and keep in mind, these numbers do not include the purchases of the Pentagon/Department of Defense. Now the federal reserve, a private bank has police powers?
The feds ordered another 200 million rounds of .223 as well.
The odds are, the dollar has four weeks or so. You think you saw a currency war? QE to Infinity is going to ignite the mother of all currency wars, and I estimate that 99.95% of us aren’t going to do to well at all.
Speaking Of Currency Wars, Today Japan’s central bank expanded its monetary easing by 10 trillion yen ($126 billion) Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2012, moving to nurture the country’s feeble economic recovery and cushion its exporters from the yen’s rise against other currencies.
Every federal agency is getting armed, and now the federal reserve.
You people, especially you that think 1.2 billion rounds is normal, forgetting to add the rest of the purchases to the abnormal, better ask your selves what is the government getting ready for. Soon it is not a matter of faith.
