Author G. Edward Griffin states that Quantitative Easing is a tricky word that sounds good, but is another way of creating money out of nothing and stealing from the taxpayers through inflation. He insists that to solve our financial problems, we shouldn’t look for solutions by asking the people who created them. Minerd believes that the Federal Reserve is facing a series of unprecedented challenges as a result of taking on unprecedented policies at the central bank, and he sees a serious issue regarding the control of future balance sheet expansion to avoid a monetary policy blunder. Minerd states that the Republic wasn’t destroyed by inflation between the 1950s and 1980s, and is still here. He is concerned that there is a high risk of stagflation in the long run, but it won’t be a problem in this decade. Griffin describes bankers and politicians as being too like-minded, and sees them as con artists.

 Cooley-McDonnell-Lacey-March FundraiserProsecutors Show Support For L A Sheriff Candidate Jim Mc Donnell

The campaign for Sheriff of Los Angeles County stirring-up political power from the  law enforcement establishment .  In March 2014 political powerhouse former DA  Steve Cooley and his hand picked successor Jackie Lacey took the lead by endorsing their candidate.  If the Prosecutors have their way, the pleasant and likeable Long Beach Police Chief Jim McDonnell will follow sixteen years of  Hispanic leadership of the L A County Sheriff’s Department that catapulted Sheriff Leroy Baca, into one the country’s most prominent Latino leaders.  It appears the L A law enforcement establishment  is ready to return to Anglo leadership.

Observers feared that L A District Attorneys  are concerned that Sheriff’s Candidate Lt. Patrick Gomez, the lone Hispanic in the race,  may take votes away from their “favored”  candidates as they blocked his participation in their Sheriff’s Candidate Forum.   The Forum was held in Boyle Heights on April 17th  where candidates traditionally come to court  the Latino Community.   But this time they were shocked to learn that the only Latino candidate running for Sheriff was not allowed to speak in the debate.  According to Hispanic activist and  L A County Deputy District Attorney Richard Ceballos (Ceballos CV) who served as Co-Chair of the event, Lt. Patrick Gomez was not invited because he considered him not to be a “viable candidate.”   When asked if the numerous ethnic prosecutor groups listed as “C0-Sponsors” on debate flyers had voted to exclude Gomez from debate,  Ceballos said no, but the group representatives did.    Full Disclosure’s Leslie Dutton invited Richard  Ceballos to explain on camera the reasons why he excluded Gomez, but he declined, citing he is a L . A. County District Attorney, in spite of the fact that his name was listed as Co-Chair of the event and introduced the chosen five candidates from the podium.

 REASON WHY GOMEZ WAS SILENCED?

648 GomezCandidate Patrick Gomez on FDN Video “Real Reasons Why  Sheriff Leroy Baca Resigned”

Lt. Patrick Gomez is running for Sheriff for the 3rd time.   In 2004 he received the overwhelming endorsement of ALADS, the nation’s largest law enforcement labor Union, and he was elected President of the Professional Peace Officers Association, the 2nd largest.  He made his mark during 31 years in the Department where for the last 12, years before retirement, he was the Chief Ethics Training Officer.  He  has decried the double standard disciplinary practices whereby Supervisors and High Command are commonly known to be exempt from punishment or firings for wrong doing.  He claims that environment has contributed to corruption in the Department and if elected he would institute disciplinary measures swiftly and fairly, across the board.

He waged a successful nine year legal battle against Sheriff Baca, Under-Sheriff Larry Waldie,  and the County for illegal retaliation and violation of his First Amendment Rights to run for office and openly debate the Sheriff Department policies that resulted in a unanimous jury decision where all the jurors were polled and held that they did not believe one single witness for the Sheriff’s Department who testified against Gomez.  He was awarded $950,000 damages and a retroactive promotion.  You can watch this video on the “Terror Tactics” employed against he and his family during the long litigation.

Former Under-Sheriff Paul Tanaka reveals his sometimes difficult relationship with Sheriff Baca over the budget initially, but that Baca put his full trust in Tanaka’s handling of the huge system involving Metro Link, nine community colleges, 12 contract cities, the most complex jail system in the U.S., and trial court funding. He divulges that allegations of overspending on the overtime budget was more a clash of egos between staff, and that Baca and the Board of Supervisors should have met personally to deal with the issue.

This Segment #3 of the Federal Reserve Series features B. Scott Minerd, Chief Investment Officer of Guggenheim Partners, LLC. G. who also is a member of the Market Advisory Board of the New York Federal Reserve Bank.  Author G. Edward Griffin contends  that the banks benefit from worthless fiat money because their profits are based on charging interest.  He states that when money was backed by gold or silver, banks couldn’t loan more than they had, but with a monetary system based on printing fiat money, their ability to make a profit isn’t limited. Griffin states that people don’t realize that Congress gave up the power to issue its own money, essentially handing it back over to the banks (the cartel), when the Federal Reserve Act was passed. He points out that the words Treasury Certificate are no longer on paper bills. They have been replaced with Federal Reserve Note, United States of America, rather than “redeemable in specific ounces of gold or silver.” Minerd observes that the history of hard currency is checkered, and the history of paper currency is abysmal. He states that there’s never been a time when the use of paper currency hasn’t led to high levels of inflation, and ultimately has either been reversed or gone off into hyper-inflation. He describes Quantitative Easing (QE), a program designed to provide stimulus to the economy once interest rates reach what is called “zero-bound.” Minerd states that QE is the process by which the Federal Reserve directly intervenes in the market, purchasing securities in an attempt to push interest rates down, essentially creating more money. He expresses concern about this money that is not borrowed or printed, but created through electronic bits, questioning what will happen when the time comes to reverse the process, and calling some sort of monetary error likely.

In this second segment of the on-going series, B. Scott Minerd, Global Chief Investment Officer of Guggenheim Partners describes the Federal Reserve as a novel concept in being a marginal provider of liquidity in times of crisis, such as the 1907 financial panic of skyrocketing interest rates. He credits the Federal Reserve’s original guidelines to print money, purchase gold, or purchase short-term, self-liquidating bills of trade until the 1930s, when it was granted emergency powers to purchase U.S. Treasury securities as a result of the Great Depression. Minerd states that today, Treasury securities are the number one holding of the Federal Reserve, and a temporary solution has become a permanent fix.  G. Edward Griffin, author of  “The Creature From Jekyll Island” considers the fiat money, with no precious metals to back it, an insidious tax on the public. His complaint is that to moderate to deflation/inflation cycles, Congress took the wrong approach by allowing the states to print more fiat money with no reserves to back it up. Minerd explains that by creating additional credit to allow the U.S. government to finance World War I, inflation spiked at an unacceptable high by 1920. The Federal Reserve then started processing disinflation for the next decade, and Minerd posits that was arguably and ultimately the part of the issue that created the Great Depression.

G. Edward Griffin, author of “The Creature from Jekyll Island,” notes that the Federal Reserve isn’t part of the federal government, and describes it as a “banana or oil cartel.” He discusses the six men representing the largest financial institutions who met in secret to protect the elite from public financial reform, hammering out what Congress would pass as the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. Griffin believes that the power to create money out of nothing went far beyond the originators’ wildest dreams because they never thought the American people or their leaders would be so stupid as to allow this complete, unrestricted expansion of the money supply. Scott Minerd, Chief Investment Officer of Guggenheim Partners, is also a member of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Investor Advisory Committee on Financial Markets. Minerd states that the Federal Reserve Act was started by individuals to design a central bank for people of the U.S. to mitigate risks of financial collapses that occurred in the early 1900s. He explains that every major power had central banking for a long time, and that a major industrial economy not having such a system was unusual. Minerd points to Progressives viewing acts of Wall Street as a concentration of power beyond the scope of what should be available to a handful of financial people.
