Stop the “printing press” of the US Federal Reserve and the “end of the world”: Delay on 48 hours
On the Internet, another version of the sensation, which until recently had the code name "21.12.12", is rapidly diverging. Now this sensation came out under the code name "23.12.12".

NEW VERSION OF THE SENSATION ABOUT THE "END OF THE WORLD"
For several months, the world and Russian media have been actively exaggerating the theme of the possible stopping of the “printing press” of the US Federal Reserve System (US Federal Reserve System), which 21 December 2012 supposedly should occur. According to the authors of publications on this topic, 99- the summer lease of the "printing press", which was concluded between private bankers and US authorities at the end of 1913. Further, depending on the authors' imagination, various “doomsday” scenarios are drawn that must inevitably come after 21 December 2012 of the year.
At the beginning of this year. I made a publication on this topic, which was called "Once again about the" end of the world. " In the Fed the rent of the printing press expires? ". In it, referring to the Federal Reserve Act and other US laws, I briefly outlined the true legal status of the Fed and explained that the information about the “end of the world” that 21.12.12 is due to occur is another informational “duck”. By the way, drew the attention of the authors of the "ducks" that 99 years from the moment of the signing of the Federal Reserve Act falls not on 21, but on December 23. After that, the authors of the ducks were somewhat rebuilt, the code name of the sensation was changed to “23.12.12”. Thank God, the earthly life of mankind has been extended for another 48 hours.
Exactly one month before the events awaited by mystically-minded citizens, namely 23 November 2012, a sensational article appeared on the War and Peace website on 23 December 2012 - what’s the intrigue? Publication author - M.A. Zhukov.
Immediately I will note that in the material of M. Zhukov there are quite sensible thoughts and quite objective facts are cited. He rightly says that the US Congress provided the Federal Press Act with a “printing press” for private bankers to lease for a period of 20 years (it is clear that we use a figurative expression, strictly legally it’s about issuing a license to a private corporation to issue money ). That is, until the end of 1933. It is also rightly said that in 1927, the US Congress amended the law, according to which the license becomes perpetual. But under certain conditions, the congress has the right to revoke this license. By the way, in my publication I drew attention to the fact that these conditions have already come a long time ago and that American lawmakers not only have the right, but even have to revoke a license (without waiting for the mystical date).
FROM ESTABLISHMENT AGREEMENT
The merit of M. Zhukov, from my point of view, is that he (unlike many authors writing on the Fed) drew attention to the following circumstance: the activities of the Federal Reserve are determined not only by the well-known 1913 law of the year, but also by the constituent documents on the basis of which the said private corporation was created.
I will quote Zhukov: “Like any private institution, the Fed is created by the memorandum of association. And this contract, being a public document, should be accessible and stored in the Library of Congress. Question of questions: is it stored there? Is it available? Why is there no scanned copy or citation of its text anywhere on the web? He is not listed in the Live Journal journal of Andrei Filatov, where the latter quoted in detail almost the entire official organ, protecting the US financial system with a passion that you don’t often see in the US residents ”(reference: Andrei Filatov is our former citizen who has long moved to USA, lives in Florida and has LiveJournal in Russian, which is dedicated exclusively to the topics of the US Federal Reserve - V.K. I note that the lack of access not only to ordinary citizens, but even to American lawmakers to the memorandum of association of the Fed becomes a "breeding ground" for all sorts of conspiracy theories, conjectures and fantasies.
Not escaped such temptation and the author of the publication on the website "War and Peace". He insists that the “end of the world” may indeed come, but it stipulates that “it may come,” but it will not necessarily come. After all, the owners of the Fed are very resourceful and can come up with something. Nevertheless, it can “come” for the reason that the specified period of 99 years is supposedly laid down in the founding document on the creation of the Fed. Like this. The author of the material of the articles of incorporation did not see, but by the “deduction method” Sherlock Holmes “figured out” that the contract should have a specified period. Of course, in world practice there are cases of constituent agreements with a fixed closing date of an enterprise (company). But why should this model of the treaty have to be applied to the Federal Reserve? The author explains this in a rather strange way: because the founders had to make contributions in the form of gold to the charter capital of a corporation. Zhukov reminds: after all, then there was a gold standard all over the world, therefore it was impossible to issue paper banknotes without gold reserves. It's right. But why should gold be provided for a period of 99 years? The author’s entire explanation boils down to the following phrase: “For how long could the golden share capital be granted for the purpose of ensuring the Fed's cash issue? It is clear that not for 100 years, but for those same 99, as is customary in the practice of business turnover. ” I rummaged through the masses of literature, but nowhere did I find confirmation of the fact that this was “accepted in the practice of business turnover”.
The constituent documents on the establishment of banks do not provide for restrictions on the terms of the functioning of banks, but only determine the procedure for depositing funds in the authorized capital and the possibilities (procedure) for their withdrawal by individual shareholders. The term of 99 years, allegedly laid down in the agreement on the establishment of the Federal Reserve, I leave to the conscience of the author of the publication “23 December 2012 of the year - what’s the intrigue?”.
ABOUT GOLD CHARTER CAPITAL AND FRS SHAREHOLDERS
Well, the following thesis of the author in general can be classified as fiction. I would not analyze this "fiction" if it had not been clogged with our sites, newspapers, magazines (and some with a claim to "scientific"). Zhukov writes: “... in order to form the gold authorized capital of the Fed, it was necessary to find investors. And they were found as they were for the first (1791-1811) and for the second (1816-1834) of US central banks. The sources of gold collateral in these last two banks are known - the royal families of Europe, including the royal family of Great Britain. ” In fact, in any textbook for money you can read about how the US Federal Reserve was formed. As is known, it initially included 12 Federal Reserve Banks (FRB), the authorized capital of which was formed at the expense of commercial banks that became members of the Federal Reserve System. They contributed to the capital of the Federal Reserve Bank and part of their gold. For those interested in details on this issue, I can recommend a good book: Murray Rothbard. History monetary circulation and banking in the USA: from the colonial period to the second world war. Per. from English - Chelyabinsk: Socium, 2005
I do not exclude that members of the royal families of Great Britain and other European countries participated in the capital of the Fed (and continue to participate). But not directly, but only indirectly, through participation in the capital of those commercial banks that became part of the Fed. Let me remind you that the law permits participation in the capital of the Federal Reserve Bank and private (individuals), however, the participation share cannot exceed 25 thousand dollars, while an individual does not have the right to participate in the decisions of the corporation.
In 1913, Congress gave America the eternal debt slavery of a private Federal Reserve, giving it the right to print money and control the American economic system. Initially, 203,053 shares of the Federal Reserve were issued, of which approximately 65% belonged to foreigners, and the remaining 35% (around 72 000 shares) were distributed among US banks:
1. National City Bank = 30,000 shares;
2. Chase National Bank (later - Chase Manhattan Bank) = 6,000 shares;
3. National Bank of Commerce (later - Morgan Guaranty Trust) = 21,000 shares;
4. First National Bank = 15,000 stock.
The number of shares owned by the Rockefellers (the first two of the above mentioned banks) was approximately equal to the number of shares owned by the Morgans (the next two banks), i.e. by xnumx xnumx stock.
Among the foreign shareholders, the main ones were: London and Berlin Rothschild banks; Paris Bank "Lazard Brothers" (Lazard Brothers); Italian banks owned by Israel Moses Sieff; Hamburg Bank of Warburg (Warburg).
In the period between the first and second world wars, among the major shareholders of the Fed, Wall Street banks appeared such as: “Kuhn Loeb”; Lehman Brothers; Goldman Sachs.
One of the most profound researchers of the US Federal Reserve, Eustace Mullins "Secrets of the Privately Owned Federal Reserve" in the main book of the US Federal Reserve System, Eustas Mullins (recently deceased), gave the following layout of the main shareholders of the Federal Reserve, which includes as well as individual banks (as of 1970's): 1) Rothschild family; 2) Lazard Frerez (Eugene Meyer); 3) Israel Siff; 4) Kun Loeb Bank; 5) Warburg Bank; 6) Lehman Brothers Bank; 7) 8 Goldman Sachs of the Rockefeller and Morgan family.
In some cases, Mullins is forced to give the names of banks, since it was not possible to disclose the ultimate shareholders of these banks (individuals). At the same time, Mullins concludes that the share capital of the Fed is not dispersed, but is in the hands of a very narrow group of family clans. In the first place he puts the Rothschild family, the second - the Rockefellers. The contemporary US financial system researcher, Nicolas Hagger, gives a slightly different “layout” of shareholders: he is in the first place is the Rockefellers, and the Rothschilds are in the second (see: Nicholas Hagger. The Syndicate. The history of creating a secret world government and its methods of influencing world politics and Economy. Translated from English - M .: CAPITAL-PRINT, 2007).
SENSATION: "RUSSIAN TRACK" IN FEDERAL RESERVE
So the statement of the author of the material we are discussing that the monarchs of Europe were the "golden" shareholders of the Fed is the author's imagination. But he is still further. The “nail” of its publication is as follows: our Tsar Nikolai Alexandrovich Romanov (Nikolai II) made the main gold contribution to the Fed's capital. I have had to deal with this kind of "ducks" more than once. In my book “Gold in economics and politics of Russia” (Moscow: Ankil publishing house, 2009) I had to engage in debunking various myths about “royal gold”.
For example, the myth of the "golden contribution" of our king to the Federal Reserve. And also that “royal gold” from the safes of the Fed migrated to the gold reserves of the International Monetary Fund. Etc. etc. Unfortunately, this kind of "duck" is still periodically extracted from the pages of the books of the late professor of the Diplomatic Academy V.A. Sirotkin, who was studying the history of "Tsar's gold" (see, for example: Sirotkin, VA Foreign gold of Russia. - M .: Olma-Press, 2000; his own: Foreign Klondike of Russia. - M .: Algorithm, 2003) . By the way, the king's family did have a certain amount of personal gold (about 5,5 tons) abroad - in the English bank of Baring. It is known that it was there before the 1917 year. Information about the future of this gold is very contradictory. I do not exclude that any particle of this gold in inscrutable ways could really be in the vaults of banks that are part of the Fed.
Apparently, the story of gold, which Nicholas II introduced into the authorized capital of the Fed, M. Zhukov borrowed from V. Sirotkin. But Zhukov went even further. He "calculated" the "successors" of our Tsar, who, as he believes, today belong to the infinite wealth of the Federal Reserve (called the amount up to 2 trillions of dollars). The author writes: “... in the extracts of the Unified State Register of Legal Entities (the Unified State Register of Legal Entities of the Russian Federation - V.К.) - several legal entities whose total authorized capital exceeds many times the consolidated budget of Russia and its GDP, i.e. it is about trillions of dollars ".
Our efficient “Internet public” has already managed to “calculate” one of such legal entities (literally several hours after the publication of M. Zhukov’s publication). This is the Charitable Foundation "The World Institute of Christian Studies of the State and Law named after PA Stolypin." The President of the Foundation is a certain citizen G. Dolgoruky-Simansky. The name is very sonorous, monarchical. But the personality itself is very shocking. They can bring a full title, which the indicated citizen designates himself as:
Archimandrite George the Great Prince Prince George the Fifth Dolgoruky-Simansky, (ков кий кий кий кий ц ц ц али али али али али али али От От От От От От От X X) The sovereign of the Pskov Grand Prince of Smolensk, Ryazan, Polotsk, Rostov, Yaroslavl, Suzdal, Muram, Lviv, Seversky, Tmutarakansky Getman and the Patron of the Don and Kuban. Cossacks Advocate of Orthodoxy and Defender of Islam in Russia.
Dolgoruky-Simansky has many different companies with interesting names. The epatage of the citizen Dolgoruky-Simansky is manifested not only in magnificent titles, but also in the fact that the authorized capital of the funds and companies created by him are measured in hundreds of billions of rubles. This does not mean that he - the second Rothschild, quietly living in Russia. The point is, apparently, in the delusions of grandeur, and also in the fact that our legislation allows for a rather frivolous assessment of property contributed to the authorized capital. It is possible, for example, to estimate three chairs in a billion rubles. But this is already a conversation for professionals, leading us away from the topic of the Federal Reserve. According to Zhukov, the owners of the Fed at the end of this year are concerned only with one thought: how to avoid the return of gold and other property to citizens like Dolgoruky-Simansky. I think that the author is mistaken, and their concerns are completely different.
FEDERAL RESERVE - OUTSIDE THE LAW
It is a pity that journalists and even professionals (economists, lawyers, political scientists) are beginning to hunt for sensations, which most often turn out to be informational "ducks." However, many serious problems associated with the activities of the same US Federal Reserve, sometimes find themselves out of sight of journalists and experts. In particular, I have repeatedly had to write about the recently conducted audit of the US Federal Reserve (by the way, the first relatively serious audit of the almost century-long history of the Federal Reserve). By the way, the audit report is posted on the Internet and is not a “secret with seven seals” (see: Federal Reserve System. Opportunities for Giving, GAO-11-696, Jul 21, 2011, 253 pp .; posted on the official website of the United States Government Accounts Office: US Government Accountability Office).
So, according to the audit report, it turned out that the Fed had distributed loans to the largest banks in the amount of more than 16 trillions during the last crisis. At the same time, part of the loans (worth more than 3 trillion. Dollars) was secretly granted to foreign banks. Without coordination with the US Congress, which is strictly prohibited by US law. Not a single cent of loans issued at the time of the audit was returned to the Federal Reserve Banks.
Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke still (soon a year and a half will have passed since the publication of the audit report) has not been able to give any intelligible explanation to all these outrages either to the president or to the “people's elected representatives” or the American people. Is this not a reason to cover up a private “shop” called the Fed, without waiting for the mystical date 23.12.12?
