Senator Calls For Probe Into Fed Independence After Bill Dudley Urges Fed To Overthrow Trump
In the aftermath of the shocking Bill Dudley op-ed, which has “opened a staggering can of worms”, and prompted many to call the former NY Fed central banker “rogue”… it was only a matter of time before someone called for an official inquiry into the “independence” of the Federal Reserve: the world’s most important central bank, the same one which Bernanke’s former advisor Andrew Levin said 3 years ago, “a lot of people would be stunned to know” the extent to which the Federal Reserve is privately owned.” The President is standing up for America against China after 30 years of our country and our workers being ripped off and there is now an effort to get the Fed to try to sabotage the President’s efforts.”
Boris Johnson asks Queen Elizabeth to suspend Parliament to force through Brexit

Johnson requested the Queen “prorogue” Parliament — shut it down, essentially — on Sept. 10, a week after lawmakers return from a summer recess.
