The Federal Reserve, Has Been Given Police Powers, With Glock 22s And Patrol Cars, Why? Video

Hattip:  A BIN reader.  This article may be freely reproduced in its entirety provided a link is provided back to the original BIN story.

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  The FRPD patrol cars and law enforcement officers had been replaced by NYPD patrol cars and officers.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:

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 Federal Reserve, a Privately Owned Banking Cartel, Has Been Given 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.

      The people who run the Federal Reserve know about all the ignorant propaganda directed against them by Austrian economists, conspiracy theorists, Ron Paul obsessives, Alex Jones’s fans, folk libertarians and just plain-vanilla mental patients and losers. In those circumstances, wouldn’t you want to hire a security force for your protection?

      • Freewilloffering

        They are also a private entity that resists audits and sprays out US Tax money all over the globe!

      • RidgeRunner

        @primitiveatheist: Wow you are sooooo smart. If I read the headlines and didn’t know what I was talking about I would think you were soooo right. Unforutantely I read do read this things closely. So here is the real scoop Einstein. The Federal Reserve “Banks” are audited and not the “Central Bank” the big Kahuna. Oh yes there is audit talk …but what kind of Audit. Not a full financial Audit. …I mean look at the word and phrase parsing here…..audit for systems..controls this and that…but not a full audit. They say they can’t provide a full audit so as to keep their “politcal independenc”. If you read far enough down one of your own links it disproves your own point. it looks like your a paid hack for their social media campaign and you were stupid enough to not read your own supporting links. The Banksters that hired you need to demand a refund!

        The Government Accounting Office does not have complete access to all aspects of the Federal Reserve System. The law excludes the following areas from GAO inspections (31 USCA §714):

        (1) transactions for or with a foreign central bank, government of a foreign country, or nonprivate international financing organization;

        (2) deliberations, decisions, or actions on monetary policy matters, including discount window operations, reserves of member banks, securities credit, interest on deposits, open market operations;

        (3) transactions made under the direction of the Federal Open Market Committee; or

        (4) a part of a discussion or communication among or between members of the Board of Governors and officers and employees of the Federal Reserve System related to items.

      So the fed has profits? You mean like its a business…propaganda? Ignorance? Just let them do their job right? Everything’s ok your gubment will take care of you..

      Mr advancedatheist you sir sound like a troll

      • adavancedatheist

        The Fed has profits, but it rebates most of them back to the Treasury at something like a 90 percent marginal tax rate. In other words, it shoulders a generous share of our common tax burden, again despite the Ignorant Propaganda which claims that the Fed runs some kind of scam.

        Look up this document from the U.S Treasury and scroll down to p. 64:

        Federal Reserve Banks (FRBs) are required by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System to transfer to the U.S. Treasury excess earnings, after providing for the cost of operations, payment of dividends, and reservation of an amount necessary to equate surplus with capital paid in. In the event of losses, or a substantial increase in capital, an FRB will suspend its payments to the U.S. Treasury until such losses or increases in capital are recovered through subsequent earnings. Weekly payments to the U.S. Treasury may vary significantly. The Interest Receivable on FRB Deposits of Earnings, Federal Reserve System, is included within “Taxes, Interest and Other Receivables, Net” line item of the Consolidated Balance Sheets (refer to Note 13), and represents the earnings due to the U.S. Treasury as of September 30, but not collected by the U.S. Treasury until after the end of the month.”

        Then scroll up to p. 59, and read:

        Deposit of Earnings, Federal Reserve System

        which amounted to nearly $83 billion in fiscal year 2011.

      If they are working for the FED, they are rent-a-cops not official law enforcement. If one of them shoots someone for other than self defense, they can be tried for murder and sued for wrongful death just like any other rent-a-cop.

      The Federal Reserve is neither federal, nor a reserve: Even the name is a fraud.)

    • Anonymous

      I have a better question. When did the federal reserve become a government that can gire their own police force. I don’t think non-police can carry guns. Citizens arrest baby.

      • Ranger_Ric

        I am a “non-police” and i have a concealed weapons permit in 39 states. Most if not all private security firms that offer guards or armored car services or even private detectives carry weapons legally. Where do you live, Chicago or DC where you have no gun rights? Don’t make such stupid statements.

      Those guys are there to protect the fed. Tin foil hats abound at this site. Barracuda and live free or die are fear mongers. Go get a paper bag put it on your head and run into a forest.

    • adavancedatheist

      The people who support going back to the gold standard haven’t thought this through very well. They assume that the transition won’t lower their living standards, when I suspect in fact that you would have to implode the economy and cause substantial depopulation to make it work. Oh, you’d have your precious “sound money,” all right, but very little of it, probably barely enough to buy the sack of flour every month for your family’s supply of gruel, except in the famine years when farmers couldn’t plant enough crops because they can’t get the credit they need (this comes from fractional reserve banking, which would have to stop).

      So, yeah, you’d enjoy “stable prices” all right, but after watching some of your children starve to death, or else die from infectious diseases they could have survived with adequate nutrition, you’ll long for the days of central banking and full stomachs.

      • Freewilloffering

        Adadvanc: That’s laughable..LOL…that we should want more and more currency that’s worth less and less instead of a sound store of value for trade. If that kind of logic were true Zimbabwe, France, Weimar Germany would all have been (or be) great places to be . It now takes very little “Gold” to equal thousand of dollars of your worthless and eroding “paper only” currency. Please tell your Fedmasters that we are not that stupid on this site. It’s the worthless currency printing that is and will starve people. BTW-what they are paying you in will be worth less tommorrow!

        As vigorously as this self-proclaimed “advanced-atheist” is blurting out fallacies and well-spun propaganda here it would be a pity for him if he didn´t get paid well for it!
