John has been officially endorsed as a Liberty Candidate. Here’s how he answered questions posed by the organization:-
I) Re. the U.S. Financial System:
What is your view of the monetary system in the U.S. today?
Our monetary system was hijacked by a criminal cabal of private bankers with the unconstitutional passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. The constitution clearly states that congress should issue our money so the Federal Reserve must be audited and abolished. Thanks to these thieves printing money out of thin air and charging us hundreds of billions of dollars in interest for the privilege, our dollar today is worth just two cents of a 1913 Federal Reserve Note.
What corrective actions could we take right now to improve the economy?
John was invited on to a major Clearchannel station – KKSF Newstalk 910 – to discuss his platform with host Bod Zadek. John brought up the fact that the Federal Reserve is a cartel of private bankers which gave tens of trillions of our taxpayer dollars to foreign banks and that the so-called “War on Terror” is based on a lie.
He told Bob that six of the ten 9/11 commissioners said they were lied to an their report was a whitewash, and that a third skyscraper full in New York on 9/11, the 47-story Building Seven (WTC7) which wasn’t even hit by a plane.
McClatchy newspapers reported that Goldman Sachs and other international banks deliberately triggered the global economic collapse by shorting the derivatives they sold, primarily Collateralized Debt Obligations and Credit Default Swaps. They have been implicated in unprecedented fraud leading to the destruction of the Icelandic and Greek economies. Iceland is fighting back by jailing their bankers and filing billion-dollar lawsuits.
We need to follow Iceland’s lead – the bankers are NOT too big to jail. I am calling for a full investigation into the activities of these megabanks and prosecuting them to the fullest extent of the law – up to and including revocation of their charter to operate. And if Goldman Sachs is found guilty of defrauding American taxpayers, we need to investigate *all* of its former executives in government, regulatory and rating agencies for any part they played in the criminal conspiracy under RICO statutes.
Former Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson used his position as Treasury Secretary to ram through the original banker bailout bill, ostensibly to “ease up the credit markets.” This let the banks steal $23 TRILLION from we the taxpayers, (Bloomberg, 7/20/09) and to add insult to injury, they’re still not lending.
It’s the biggest heist in history and everyone responsible needs to go to jail.
