Stories never tell the truth about private Federal Reserve

The [Jan. 30] Gazette posted information to enlighten public awareness on the Federal Reserve. But it did not contain the truth about the globalists running this monetary scam.

The general public thinks Fed banks are U.S. government institutions, when actually they are private credit monopolies that prey upon the public for their own benefit.

In 1913, a personal income tax was placed on “we the people,” which began the Federal Reserve. Black’s Law Dictionary defines “coins or paper” currency as the medium of circulatory exchange. This does not embrace notes [or] bonds as evidence of debt.

Federal Reserve “notes” are unacceptable as money, as they are notes — an IOU — thus evidence of debt. The free coinage act specified money to be silver or gold coin, and its denomination based on weight.

Thus the Federal Reserve goes against everything the Founding Fathers believed in — having private and foreign interests controlling our monetary system.

O’Reilly won’t pull punches for anyone

Re admitted Democrat Beverly Andrews’ Feb. 6 letter complaining about Bill O’Reilly’s interview of President Obama before the Super Bowl. She said she was “expecting a lighthearted give-and-take,” but instead got a “diatribe against the president.”

Perhaps she thought it would be similar to his campaign-like appearances on Comedy Central or the David Letterman show, where the questions are easy, such as “What is your favorite color?” or “Where is Michelle traveling this week?”

O’Reilly asks hard questions, not fluff, in an effort to get information that should matter to the public, which the major networks don’t ask because they are too busy acting as his cheerleaders and propaganda machine.

In the last few weeks alone, these same networks have covered the [Gov.] Chris Christie bridge story at least 50 times more than all of Obama’s scandals in the last eight months.

I won’t even get into the evasiveness of his answers when pressed by O’Reilly, but I would say Obama was about as truthful as when he said “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”

S-G High pep band perfect accompanists

I recently attended the Scotia-Glenville basketball game vs. Gloversville with Assemblyman Jim Tedisco, who I had the good fortune to coach at Bishop Gibbons High School back in the 1960s. We were treated to a hard-fought and entertaining game, won by Scotia-Glenville, to keep their unbeaten season intact. The evening was made all the more enjoyable as a result of the performance of the S-G pep band.

During timeouts and halftime, the pep band belted out spirited renditions of songs like “Twist and Shout” and “Crunch Time” to the delight of those in attendance. Their performance put the crowd in an upbeat mood and provided a much-appreciated bonus I wasn’t expecting.

I have attended many high school basketball games over the years and can remember few pep bands. After hearing Scotia-Glenville’s, I wonder why more schools don’t have one.

I commend the band members for their outstanding performance and for the boost they give to school spirit.
