Donald Trump should pick serious striking points and do them. Here are a few that will give him enough wins to put him on Easy Street for the rest of his Presidency.
AUDIT THE FED.
The Federal Reserve slipped through its hundredth anniversary as a quasi-private business under the umbrella of the federal Government. Unlike every other venture, THE FED IS NOT AUDITED to account for its money. Read that over again.
Here is what’s classified TOP SECRET:
- Transactions for or with a foreign central bank, government of a foreign country, or no private international financing organization;
- Deliberations, decisions, or actions on monetary policy matters, including discount window operations, reserves of member banks, securities credit, interest on deposits, and open market operations;
- Transactions made under the direction of the Federal Open Market Committee; or
a part of a discussion or communication among or between members of the Board and officers and employees of the Federal Reserve System related to clauses (1)–(3) of this subsection.
The second one is basically all internal operations for the Federal Reserve. The entity that HANDLES the money of the United States doesn’t have an accountant.
A partial one-time-only audit in 2011 showed:
that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations in the United States and throughout the world,” said Sanders. “This is a clear case of socialism for the rich and rugged, you’re-on-your-own individualism for everyone else.”
That’s a kind of Socialism that Bernie can’t stand. That Trump would call unfair.
This one-hit-only partial audit is crap. Even Trump, who is the OWNER of his own business, has it audited – and keeps the results to himself. A huge government that belongs to the Citizens should be reporting to its stockholders annually. A State of the Union address that includes audit results starting in 2018? Trump will be amazed that it’s not being done already.
Lock in a Balanced Budget
Read my lips. I wrote this a couple years ago, and sent it around. It got no traction. It’s a proposed 28th Amendment to the Constitution. 41 words. Economical. You may download and forward if you want. Knock yourself out. (proposed 28th Amendment.)
