The amount of U.S. currency circulating outside banks rose sharply in July/August 2001. The growth ran into the billions of dollars, and was concentrated in $100 bills. These large-scale currency movements matter for anyone who cares about learning the truth about 9/11.
Under money laundering and other laws, assets can be frozen and seized in the banking system. Knowing this, parties concerned that their assets might be frozen or otherwise at risk after 9/11 would have had an incentive to liquidate securities and banking accounts beforehand, and withdraw their money in difficult-to-trace ways. This could have happened in U.S. banking and securities accounts, as well as accounts denominated in U.S. dollars outside the United States. Finding the parties responsible for large-scale withdrawals of currency before 9/11 could help identify people aware of, if not responsible for, those events.

People with intellectual integrity and moral courage embrace the evidence of “mainstream” media lies of omission and commission regarding US wars and transfer of trillions of dollars to banksters. The evidence linked is objective, independently verifiable, and in broad daylight for anyone and everyone to see.
So-called “mainstream” media also censors consideration of the answer to our economic crisis: monetary reform. When the facts are clear that transferring the power to create money from banks to the public for the direct payment of taxes saves Americans over a trillion dollars every year, ends the national debt and ~$450 billion in annual interest payments, and that this idea was backed by many of America’s brightest historical minds, that this idea would solve our unemployment catastrophe (and here), and the idea has no mention from these five corporations, we can safely conclude deliberate censorship.
I realize this is not strictly 9/11 related but I think there are more than a few who read this blog who would be interested in seeing this.
Spitzer: Federal Reserve is ‘a Ponzi scheme, an inside job’
By Daniel Tencer
Published: July 25, 2009
The Federal Reserve — the quasi-autonomous body that controls the US’s money supply — is a “Ponzi scheme” that created “bubble after bubble” in the US economy and needs to be held accountable for its actions, says Eliot Spitzer, the former governor and attorney-general of New York.
In a wide-ranging discussion of the bank bailouts on MSNBC’s Morning Meeting, host Dylan Ratigan described the process by which the Federal Reserve exchanged $13.9 trillion of bad bank debt for cash that it gave to the struggling banks.
Spitzer — who built a reputation as “the Sheriff of Wall Street” for his zealous prosecutions of corporate crime as New York’s attorney-general and then resigned as the state’s governor over revelations he had paid for prostitutes — seemed to agree with Ratigan that the bank bailout amounts to “America’s greatest theft and cover-up ever.”
In this brief and powerful interview, much is revealed. Kyley, a member of WeAreChangeLA, caught up with Ron Paul while in Las Vegas at the Campaign for Liberty, and asked him about how to deal with the IMF and why he won't come out about the truth about 9/11.
Kyley: If we're going to audit the Fed, don't we need to also have to audit the IMF, given they're connected?"
The New York Fed is the most powerful financial institution you've never heard of. Look who's running it.

The kerfuffle about current New York Federal Reserve Bank Chairman Stephen Friedman's purchase of some Goldman stock while the Fed was involved in reviewing major decisions about Goldman's future—well-covered by the Wall Street Journal here and here—raises a fundamental question about Wall Street's corruption. Just as the millions in AIG bonuses obscured the much more significant issue of the $70 billion-plus in conduit payments authorized by the N.Y. Fed to AIG's counterparties, the small issue of Friedman's stock purchase raises very serious issues about the competence and composition of the Federal Reserve of New York, which is the most powerful financial institution most Americans know nothing about.
9/11 Commissioner and former Sen. Bob Kerrey is quoted in this article, which I took as a reason to include criticism and links regarding that. Hyperlinks at the 911Reports.com post
Prophetic Article in the 1999 NY Times- ‘CONGRESS PASSES WIDE-RANGING BILL EASING BANK LAWS’
An article was published in the November 5, 1999 New York Times regarding the passage of “Gramm-Leach-Bliley” Act; it overturned the Glass-Steagal Act and opened the door for banks and securities companies to engage in the massive orgy of speculation and greed that led to the current economic meltdown. Clinton signed it into law, and most Republicans and Democrats in Congress, and the politically-controlled SEC, OTS, OCC, FBI, Fed Reserve and Treasury, did nothing to stop the criminal corporate profiteers from raping the American consumer and blowing up the economy. Even now, Obama’s administration is aiding and abetting profiteering from the current crisis, by the very same people who profited from rigged markets that led to the crisis.
The Shadow Money Lenders: The Real Significance of The Fed’s Zero-Interest-Rate Policy (ZIRP)
The Battle To Save The Fiat Money System Has Begun
by Matthias Chang
Global Research, December 26, 2008
The disinformation by the global financial dailies in the last twelve months as to the cause of the global financial tsunami, serve the same purpose as the global mass media when they perpetuated the lies that lulled the people to support the war criminals Bush, Blair and Howard to launch the barbaric war against Iraq and Afghanistan which resulted in the genocide of millions, the mutilation of hundreds of thousands, physically and psychologically, and the devastation of an entire nation.
The wars unleashed thus far, specifically the “War on Terror” were launched to preserve the shadow money-lenders’ political and military power.
This War on Terror is the greatest military sideshow that distracted the American people from the financial rape and plunder of their economy and the destruction of their Constitution.

10. Over the Top Fed Actions Feed Conspiracy Thinking
By Scott Thill, AlterNet
Once upon a time a child was born in a place called the land of the free and the home of the brave. She was told that she was very, very lucky to be born in this land, the best country on earth. In school every morning, her entire class stood, placed their hands over their hearts, and solemnly recited a Pledge of Allegiance to her nation’s flag. After that the class sang a stirring song about the greatness of this land and its purple mountain’s majesty. The same songs were heard on Independence Day, and, as the music swelled to a crescendo, tears filled the child’s eyes with gratitude for being a citizen of such a wonderful land.
I think you will find this woman's experiences interesting. Interesting and horrifying. Evidently the New World Order is already in place and ruling -- just not out in the open yet.
Svali escaped from the Satanic Illuminati cult.
They will force a two year old child to kill a kitten -- or else be shocked mercilessly. As they get older they are forced to kill larger things, even human babies.
This corroborates a book I've been reading by researcher Dave McGowan, "Programmed to Kill." It's the worst thing I've ever read. The evil of 9/11 is nothing compared to this: the ritual rape, torture and murder of children, while nations everywhere refuse to prosecute the murderers, despite abundant evidence of their crimes.
