Following the money from the Fed to Middle East and back again

Tuesday we were reminded about the huge cache of cash that was funneled from the US to Iraq and later Iran after US forces secured the areas earlier this century.

How the New York Federal Reserve bank — the first among equals of the 12 regional banks —  shipped billions of dollars in physical cash shrink-wrapped on pallets to Baghdad to pay allegedly for the reopening of the government and restoration of basic services.

The Bush II White House sent cash weighed 363 tons reportedly loaded onto military aircraft in the largest money shipments ever made by the Federal Reserve, said Rep. Henry Waxman, chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in 2007.

Similar shipments were sent to Iran. This time the payments were categorized by the Obama administration as interest to resolve a decades-old dispute over an undelivered military sale. A $1.3 billion payment was sent to Iran two days after the Obama White House allowed $400 million in cash to fly to Tehran from the Federal Reserve in early 2016.

In order to perhaps cover their tracks better with Iran, the Fed Reserve made the disbursements in 13 separate payments of $99,999,999.99 and final payment of about $10 million to avoid further detection by keeping the individual transactions under $100 million.

With little accountability, where does this cash wind up? The post suggests that some may be brought back to differing political campaigns and “charitable” foundations to further agendas. It’s not one party doing this, it’s all parties exploiting the citizens.

So the drop begins by asking what happens when an outsider becomes president and asks for information on this theft of taxpayer money and wants to change how we go about funding our country?

The two most recent presidents to question the true purpose of the central bank — John F Kennedy (assassinated) and Ronald Reagan (assassination attempt) — tells you exactly what happens.

While reports on attempts to take the life of President Trump may be highly classified at this time, some have come out. A presidential motorcade driver in Florida with a hidden handgun arrested by Secret Service, A man arrested last month trying to secure an anti-tank missile to fire at the White House and a rogue missile being fired and intercepted while Air Force One is flying to Asia for meeting with North Korean leader Kim.

The President has made no bones about his dislike of the Federal Reserve system and how it operates for private owners under the guise of being part of the government. While the central bank may return some annual profits to the Treasury Department, that comes only after stakeholders receive their healthy dividend.

It’s insiders vs an outsider. It’s about retaining control vs. losing it, the drop says.
