Skip to comments.The Fed Is Hiring: Lots Of Cops (Federal Reserve Bank)
Posted on 01/06/2014 5:50:04 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Some may have forgotten, or not be aware, that the Federal Reserve system has its own police force. Well, it does: "The U.S. Federal Reserve Police is the law enforcement arm of the Federal Reserve System, the central banking system of the United States.... Officers are certified to carry a variety of weapons systems (depending on assignment) including semi-automatic pistols, assault rifles, submachine guns, shotguns, less-lethal weapons, pepper spray, batons and other standard police equipment. Officers also wear bullet resistant vests/body armor. On October 12, 2010 President Barack Obama signed into law S.B. 1132 the "Law Enforcement Officers' Safety Act Improvements Act", which states that law enforcement officers of the Federal Reserve are "qualified law enforcement officers" and thus are authorized to carry a firearm off-duty."
At last check, there were over 1000 sworn members of the Fed police force. And judging by the recent spike in appearances of such "help wanted" ads as those shown below, that number is too low. We expect many more job postings such as these to appear in the coming weeks and months: in fact, we are willing to predict that the closer we get to a "renormalization" of the Fed's balance sheet, the faster the hiring of Fed cops...

Oh, great . . . now I have to worry about the Fed busting down my door.
The uniform industry is quietly “high-fiving” each other.
Isn’t it ‘fascinating’ to discover how many ‘police agencies’ here in the United States?
An alien being from another planet could legitimately state that the people of this world are incapable of controlling themselves and their desires and have developed a mechanism for imposing those controls on themselves involving ‘police forces’.
They could also legitimately state that those controls will always fail because the people intrusted to enforce those controls, ie: Laws, are only Human and are incapable in the long run of controlling themselves and their own desires.
A special police force to protect the counterfeiters, and to force people to take the counterfeit bills they produce.
That enables government protected minorities to rob productive people under color of authority.
Just what we need.
And when will they be getting their SWAT teams to take out people under the “severe penalties for early withdrawal” policy?
Or maybe they will need the SWAT teams to defend the FED when the government freezes bank accounts before they take “one time debt reduction taxes” from peoples accounts.
Actually, the 1%’ers depend on the sheep to herd themselves.
There’s hardly enough of them to control the prey animals on their own.
Just in case your dog insists on Bitcoins instead of Federal Reserve notes.
“... when the government freezes bank accounts...”
The Argentine crises hit my family up-close, and that is coming sooner or later.
If someone needs first-hand accounts, let me know.
My entire strategy on prepping is based on the stories I read about Argentina and Bosnia.
Funny that the Federal Reserve is not part of the government how can they be hiring a federal militia.
I am beginning to suspect this is all part of plan to quietly build up a huge federal police presence without alarming the sheoples. If Obowmao just tripled the size of the FBI, there would be a lot of questions asked. So instead he spreads it around various smaller groups. We now have FBI, Homeland Security, IRS, Federal Reserve, Social Security, ATF, Secret Service, and probably other departments all with some significant number of police officers.
This is an end-run around the Posse Comitatus Act. It gives the Feds their own internally focused military to keep us in line.
All I can say, is
because it is the same here!
They just want us to believe they have something worth protecting. All the gold is gone, the guards are protecting empty vaults.
Yes; and I know there are agencies that few even heard about; some are up to ‘5-letters’ now.
It could be interesting if they are involved in a Wrongful Death incident. Government police agencies are protected by sovereign immunity. The Fed however is a private entity, with VERY deep pockets. Just cause Obama said they can carry guns doesn’t mean when they use them they can dodge stuff like the other three letters agencies can.
All hail the money cops! Invest wisely, or else. Debtors prison 2.0. Just another example of how all of the wealth that you have earned over your lifetime, does NOT belong to you, but is only a contribution to the greater good, peasant. Once you accept this fact, the much easier you’ll be to deal with. What? Did you actually think that the feds would confiscate all of your savings and retirement funds by asking pretty please?
And here everyone thought I was crazy by using my retirement funds to buy survival gear and firepower.
Well, yeah, assuming the law applies then.
They can change the rules. It is done daily.
“...everyone thought I was crazy by using my retirement funds to buy survival gear and firepower.”
As for me, I have no retirement left, but have pretty much followed your ‘crazy’ approach.
No you don’t!They are scared people are going to see through the whole money game which they have been funding with NO money nor assets to back it up for 100 years along with all governments who went along with this scam!The central banks all come from the land of oz because it’s worthless paper that no one has nor can anyone repay!
Nothing in Chicago? Damn, I’d like to carry down there. LOL!
Governments and bankers produce nothing but debt and thats why they work hand in hand together.
Governments and bankers produce nothing but debt and thats why they work hand in hand together.
But they are part of the government.
I can't think of an organization that has more assets than the Fed. Over $4 trillion and counting.
My sympathy for your losses. There will be many surprised when it happens here ... but it will.
They’re hiring so much I know a guy who they just hired to help hire.
If the powers to be want to take from me what I have rightfully earned, they will have to pay dearly for it. There’s a price to pay for not abiding by the Constitution, and nobody living in the US is above the law of the land. Violate the law, and I will exercise my right to redress my grievances, whether you like it or not. Sound good?
Yes, sounds good; some of my family was impacted, I was not; and they did not have any recourse: who would they go after?
The way this works, it is the feds that just take what they want; I would be interested in knowing what one could do in that case, as the feds hide behind a wall of secrecy; there is no ‘individual’ responsible, just as the system was designed to protect themselves.
Those in office are protected real well, since they fear due to their actions.
Do I see this right?
“And here everyone thought I was crazy by using my retirement funds to buy survival gear and firepower.”
They still think you’re crazy.
BTW, here's a Thompson they keep on display at the KC Fed.
This was lifted from a post in the comments section of the original article
FED’s job ad from 1980, hiring tech brains while spilling the shocking truth.
Career Perspectives in American Banking
“We work so closely with the Government to insure stability in the American banking system, that some people think we’re a branch of the Government. Actually, we’re not.”
They are a private cartel.
They only have paper assets and a little gold they stole from countries during world WW11.Strange Germany couldn’t get their gold back if they really had 4 trillion dollars of hard assets.The fed is the biggest fraud in American history from day 1.
What government?Not the federal government.
Not a branch of government, still part of government.
Yup. $4 trillion in paper assets. Over $300 billion in gold.
Yes, the federal government.
I would love to see the breakdown of who funded the US government 7 trillion dollars since obama has been president and where are the lenders assets to back it up.There are NONE!
The federal reserve is in no way a part of the federal government and never has been since 1913 nor does the federal government own any part of the fed.They are a purely private bank owned by class A stockholders.
That’s called a “protection racket” as employed by organized crime syndicates. Put into perspective, most federal agencies could be successfully prosecuted under their own RICO statutes. The only reason they aren’t is because the law and the lawless are one and the same.
The only difference between the US and the rest of the world, is that under the Constitution (ie: the law of the land), we have a moral obligation to shoot the sorry bastards if they get too far out of line, and knock down any would-be dictators or despots, much to the dismay of their cronies and sycophants.
Sure it is.
nor does the federal government own any part of the fed.They are a purely private bank owned by class A stockholders.
The "shareholders" received dividends of $1.6 billion in 2012, the US Treasury received $89 billion.
Thanks, that’s hilarious!
Nonsense,the treasury always received the overspill of profits from the fed in their deal but the fed is a private banking cartel and has been from day one.LOL!They partners in crime!
Yeah, nothing says private like giving 98% of the profits to the US Treasury. LOL!
The only thing that is a joke is your post!If the federal reserve was part of the government they wouldn’t have no trespassing signs on their property and you would find them in the phonebook under federal government but you won’t find them and never will.They must be working with santa claus and the tooth fairy on a secret mission.LOL!
By that "logic" the CIA isn't part of the federal government either.
In Texas they have signs at their locations that they are private because so many people protest!Hello!When did the federal government become private?HELLO!
