Chilling: Author Brad Thor Reveals the Extremely Powerful Agency behind new book ‘Hidden Order’
The Blaze ^ | July 9, 2013 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 07/14/2013 6:48:11 AM PDT by opentalk

Author Brad Thor warned about the NSA surveillance state in his last book “Black List,” and in a recent interview with TheBlaze’s Jon Seidl, described the subject of his newest book as an organization “more secretive than the NSA, CIA, and some people claim more powerful than the United States government itself.”

On Glenn Beck’s radio program Tuesday, coinciding with the book’s release date, Thor revealed the agency behind “Hidden Order”: the Federal Reserve.

… When he peels back the layers, Thor said, Harvath discovers that the Fed “is doing things nobody in America could ever imagine could be done…”

“And I think all this kind of stuff is going to, in real life, come to light really soon,” Thor added.

… In number one bestselling author’s estimation, the Federal Reserve loves the current scandals surrounding the IRS and the NSA because it’s about to mark it’s 100th year, and despite the fact that they’re “not accountable to the American people,” we’re “not talking about them.”

Yes, we know the Federal Reserve but it is not an agency, it is a private company and treated as a agency that has destroyed not helped the economy.

I heard a presentation last week that their charter ends at the end of this year and they my just dissolved and have the American taxpayer pick up all the paper and debt while they walk away with all the profits and money.

I’ve read quite a few of Thor’s books. They’re entertaining reads.

You may want to read “End the Fed” by Ron Paul (available in paperback). It chronicles and exposes the national consequences of Fed manipulation. An eye opening book for sure.

I heard Ron Paul say the fed has never been audited but I also saw a video of a hearing in the House discussing the audit in 2008 showing 8 Trillion gone - unaccountable and one in 2012 where now 16 Trillion that simply gone.

Things like that accounting discrepancy can show up without an audit; an audit would actually try to find the where and how that money went, as well as inspecting the entire financial integrity.

Interesting interview

paraphrase...the Gov/progressives have pre-strategized solutions shelved for crisis. (May meddle to make it happen, F&F)

whenever a government is trying to divide you (Zimmerman case, MSM, DOJ, Obama input) The bottom line is our liberties are at stake.

I preordered it from Amazon, and it downloaded into my Kindle in the past week. I haven’t had a chance to start it.

OK, different terminology - we know there is no financial integrity so that would be the easy part.
I
remember when we had the big 10, then 8 now 4 accounting firms and none bid on auditing any of the 12 major agencies because it was too complicated and too much liability.

“Thor was on coast-to-coast am last night for an extended interview. I’m not sure how long the show will remain available for non-members but you can listen to it here...”

I listened too. It was really interesting. Can’t wait to read his two latest books.

The Fed is now holding some $6 trillion worth of bond purchases. That is a stunning number. And its money that was created out of thin air. How can they unwind that position without significant disruption to the market, not to mention the inflationary consequences?

Over time, the Fed has gone down the proverbial slippery slope with intervention after intervention. IMHO this “mission creep” has dangerously morphed into manipulating the stock market. This may have started off with the intention of stabilizing shakey markets but in its recent drive to create a wealth effect to stimulate the economy, it has distorted normal market mechanisms. The market is clearly now more Fed driven than valuation driven. The market has become addicted to the financial equivalent of heroin.

I agree with Thor that at some point the true depth of the Fed’s manipulation will eventually become evident.

I think they will steal all the cash from everyone private accounts and 401K’s first. There is already legislation to have the fed provide retirement not private and will take all the cash and destroy 97% of the economy.

People, (Conservatives) have no idea of the level of hatred liberals have toward this country and want it destroyed.

They really don’t understand just how much hatred there is because they, don’t hate and if you do not do something, you simply cannot understand it.

*******
I’ve worked around lots of liberals for lots of years. Belive me, the vast majority of them were elitists who harbored deep-seated disdain for this country. Most want to install a socialist/communist society model, with them on the top as ruling elites of course.

If a republican wins in 2016 there’s going to be one hell of a crash.

As for secret stuff, tin foil isn’t needed anymore. I saw on some show where a retired federal agent from one of the letter agencies said, just before he died, “Everything you can possibly think of, we’ve already got it.”

I can’t remember his name or what show I saw it on. I’m sure it was one of those conspiracy shows. Irregardless, the agent was real and I thought his statement was chilling.

From additional Blaze link, Thor interview

…“Something happened to me after 9/11: My wife and I were stranded on the East Coast. We were supposed to go on vacation and all the flights got canceled … and we ended up on the East Coast and we went to a small island off the coast of Georgia,” he said.

“And while we were there I learned the story of an organization that exists in Washington, D.C., poses as a part of the United States government —it is not —and is more secretive than the NSA, more secretive than the CIA, and some would allege is even more powerful than the United States government.”

Part of the government, not private.

No.

and they my just dissolved and have the American taxpayer pick up all the paper and debt while they walk away with all the profits and money.

The Fed gives their profit, after expenses, to the Treasury. About $90 billion last year.

"We're going to pay interest on reserves to large banks in the U.S., and to foreign banks, to the tune of tens of billions of dollars, at a time when we're not going to pay anything back to the U.S. Treasury," St. Louis Fed President James Bullard said from the audience at the conference. "That sounds like a recipe for political problems."

PAYING THE PRICE

The central bank returns portfolio profits to the Treasury each year and it has never missed a payment before. Last year, remittances hit a record $89 billion thanks to its bloated balance sheet.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates it will contribute some $95 billion a year to federal coffers through 2016. But remittances are expected to hit zero from 2018 through 2020, before resuming in 2021.link

Love that silly book. Here's a sample.

Page 27, "When a borrower cannot repay and there are no assets which can be taken to compensate, the bank must write off that loan as a loss. However, since most of the money originally was created out of nothing and cost the bank nothing except bookkeeping overhead, there is little of tangible value that is actually lost. It is primarily a bookkeeping entry".

Wow! That's why no banks ever fail. LOL!

The Fed is now holding some $6 trillion worth of bond purchases.

$1.95 trillion of Treasuries, $1.2 trillion of MBS.

How can they unwind that position without significant disruption to the market, not to mention the inflationary consequences?

When they unwind, it will be deflationary. They don't have to sell in a rush, they can let the bonds mature.
