Interesting. Always knew there was something not right about the Fed. I read a book explaining the setup and found out it was worse than I knew; and completely controlled by the old banks, but I didn't know that the Bank of England was the bank. ( I suppose you wouldnt know anything changing status to a non-combatant? just one of those things I heard related to the creation of the Fed)
What does the Fed have to do with increase in the military budget? Do they get a cut off military spending?
US political-economics (they can't be separated) is a big machine with many moving parts. The Federal Reserve is the grease that keeps the gears from clashing and seizing up. Just like a gear box though, too much lubricant is bad too, not just too little. The Fed gets a cut off of most spending, since so much of it is deficit spending. The Fed doesn't get a cut off of tax revenues. Per the 2008/2009 debacle, the German bank and the Bank of England get cuts too (they act in concert with the Fed). The US dollar is the engine for all economic growth since WW II (outside of US enemies like the Soviet Union and Red China of course). Economic warfare is a critical ingredient in any strategy, so the Fed underlies most of what the DoD does. The CIA prefers drug dealing, since they can keep the amounts off the books, in the Black Budget. Technically in modern times, the Fed is a non-profit, because they are supposed to feed profits back to the Treasury. But the non-profit benefits are tremendous, for the banks that participate (NY Fed being the king). The great proponent of the Fed was J P Morgan ;-( And a great opponent of the Fed was Charles Lindberg Sr (the father of the aviator). Lindy's daddy was boss.
So are you wanting to drop out of the political economy, or just avoid being drafted when WW III starts?
The Fed was created in 1913 ... because the Bank of England (Rothschild connection) knew that WW I was coming shortly, and that the British Empire would need lots of liquidity.
