AMAZING MUST READ: The FED printed 16 TRILLION for people around the world during the financial crisis
CAMPAIGN FOR LIBERTY
With America's attention fixated on what's happening in Washington concerning the debt crisis, I wanted to make sure you knew that the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has released the results of its one-time, limited audit of the Federal Reserve System.
The revelations are sickening – so-called "money" tossed around like confetti to banksters, foreign banks, and favored corporations.
Before I go into detail about their findings, let me first thank you for all your efforts in support of a thorough audit of our nation's central bank. This isn't the full audit Ron Paul and Campaign for Liberty continue to push, but it is a first peek behind Ben Bernanke's curtain of secrecy.
This audit only happened because of our historic grassroots Audit the Fed movement.
Of course, Audit the Fed was always about achieving a complete, thorough audit. Audit the Fed was stymied at the last minute in the Senate last year, but the limited, one-time audit our efforts guaranteed has revealed a number of reasons for why we must not give up on a full audit.
Sixteen Trillion reasons, actually.
We have now learned that the Federal Reserve lent $16 trillion to both domestic and overseas financial institutions during the height of the financial crisis!
Let me rephrase that while the number sinks in - $16,000,000,000,000.
In less than three years.
From Dec. 1, 2007 – July 21, 2010, the Federal Reserve "created reserves in the banking system" (Bernanke slang for printing money) that exceeded not only the entire U.S. GDP for a year, but also the entire U.S. national debt that's accumulated over the past 224 years!
More than $3 trillion dollars were lent to overseas financial institutions in numerous countries, including in the U.K., Germany, and France.
In addition, we learned just how much the big banks who contributed heavily to the crisis were rewarded - including nearly $8 trillion to banks like Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, Merill Lynch, and Bank of America.
In February 2009, Campaign for Liberty made Audit the Fed our top legislative priority for the 111th Congress.
At the time, most Americans didn't even know what the Federal Reserve was.
But thanks to an unprecedented level of grassroots pressure generated by C4L members like you across the country, we were able to pry open just a portion of the Fed's books for the first time in history!
And we gained the support of over 70% of the American people for Audit the Fed.
Now, the case has never been clearer for why a complete audit is needed, and our resolve to achieve our goal has never been stronger.
That's why Campaign for Liberty is planning to turn on the pressure for Audit the Fed like never before.
We will especially focus our efforts on the U.S. Senate, where only 7 legislators have cosponsored Senator Rand Paul's S. 202.
But to carry out this program, and alert millions of more Americans to our fight, we need your help.
First, if you haven't yet done so, please sign the petition at AudittheFed.com right away. Then, please send it to your family and friends so they can learn more about this key issue.
Second, while your representative and senators are back home on their August recess, schedule a meeting or stop in at a town hall and make sure to urge them respectfully to cosponsor the Audit the Fed bills, H.R. 459 and S. 202, if they have not already cosponsored.
If they have signed on, urge them to do everything in their power to achieve a standalone, up or down roll call vote in their chamber of Congress.
Third, I hope you can chip in $10 or $20 to help C4L increase the support for Audit the Fed even further and see it turned into law.
We're up against one of the most secretive, powerful institutions in Washington, which can create money out of thin air to finance its operations. Ben Bernanke, Barack Obama, and their bankster allies seem determined to never again let Americans know what the Fed does.
Well, it's up to you and me to blow a hole in their secret projects and let loose the outrage of Americans feeling the pinch of out-of-control spending, skyrocketing gas prices, and an economy stuck in failure.
C4L can only take as much action as your continued support allows, and we thank you for all you have helped us accomplish so far.
This limited, one-time glimpse into the Fed's activities was only possible because of your tireless efforts.
Now is the time to double down on the pressure.
Campaign for Liberty will continue to use our nationwide grassroots network to educate millions of Americans about sound money and the need for transparency at our nation's secretive central bank.
With your continued assistance, we will generate millions of petitions and phone calls to Congress pushing for the passage of Audit the Fed (officially "The Federal Reserve Transparency Act" in Congress), H.R. 459 and S. 202.
Director of Legislation
P.S. Now that we know that the Fed tossed around over $16 trillion in less than three years to favored banksters, insiders, and foreign institutions, it's time to double down on the pressure for a complete audit of our central bank.
In addition to signing the petition at AudittheFed.com, I hope you will stop by your elected officials' local offices during their August recess to urge them to do all in their power to pass Audit the Fed.
And if you're able to at this time, please chip in $10 or $20 so we can recruit more Americans to this fight for our economic future.

Freud is the son of June Flewett and the late writer Sir Clement Freud, his sister is television interviewer Emma Freud. His great-grandfather is Sigmund Freud and he is doubly related to the 'father' of public relations, Edward Bernays, whose father was Sigmund Freud's brother-in-law (the brother of Sigmund Freud's wife) and whose mother was Sigmund Freud's sister. He is the nephew of artist Lucian Freud and (by former marriage) of the late writer Lady Caroline Blackwood, and his cousins include fashion designer Bella Freud, novelists Susie Boyt andEsther Freud.
He was educated at Westminster School and left in his third year and briefly attended Pimlico Comprehensive.
Freud Communications is currently the eighth largest public relations company in the UK, with around 150 employees. Landmark campaigns include the London 2012 Olympics, Product (RED), Nike, Pepsi, The Opening of Atlantis The Palm and UNHCR's Gimme Shelter. Adam Curtis in his documentary Century of the Self describes Matthew Freud as a star in the "new culture of public relations and marketing in politics, business and journalism" which rose in the Clinton-Blair years. PRWeek says that Freud is "the most influential PR professional in the UK".
Matthew Freud, along with his sister Emma Freud and brother-in-law Richard Curtis, sit on the board of Trustees for Comic Relief, which is aired every second year on the BBC as a nationwide charity event.
In May 2005, in partnership with Piers Morgan, he acquired ownership of the Press Gazette, a media trade publication, and its 'cash cow' the British Press Awards, in a deal worth £1million. Many major newspapers have boycotted the event citing an apparent conflict of interest as one of the reasons. In addition to owning a publication, Freud is married to Elisabeth Murdoch, daughter of Rupert Murdoch.
Matthew Freud Associates first nationwide campaign was in 1989 for JIFFI deLuxe Condoms founded by Michael Conitzer in 1986. Matthew was responsible for some of the most memorable JIFFI Pr campaigns which finally resulted in JIFFI being sold to the giant Maylaysian listed conglomerate, Sime Darby Plc in 1990.
Freud's first wife was Caroline Hutton with whom he had two sons: George Rupert Freud and Jonah Henry Freud. Caroline subsequently married the 9th Earl Spencer on 15 December 2001, he being the brother of the deceased Diana, Princess of Wales.
His second wife is Elisabeth Murdoch, second daughter of media magnate Rupert Murdoch head of News Corporation. When the couple began dating (while working as colleagues), she was pregnant with a second child by her first husband and business partner, Elkin Pianim (the son of Ghanaian financial and political mogul, Kwame Pianim). The couple married in August 2001 at Blenheim Palace. They have two children, Charlotte Emma Freud, born in 2000, and Samson Murdoch Freud, born in 2007.
He has a friendship with several members of the Conservative party including George Osborne and David Cameron. He was infamously at a meal, attended by Osborne and Peter Mandelson, where it was alleged Osborne attempted to solicit a donation for the Conservatives from Oleg Deripaska, the Russian billionaire. Freud has also invited Cameron to many events and is part of the so-called 'Notting Hill set' of influential Conservative-linked figures.
