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.
