There is a strong current in the Israeli right wing for Israel to stop accepting American money. The (decidedly statist) late Rabbi Meir Kahane advocated this, the presently living (and libertarian) Moshe Feiglin of the Manhighut Yehudit (“Jewish Leadership”) faction of the Likud party advocates this (Feiglin, a right-wing, pro-Israel libertarian, is the inveterate enemy of Benjamin Netanyahu of the same Likud party, and Netanyahu never misses an opportunity to stab Feiglin in the back), and in my yeshiva, Machon Meir, Yehuda ha-Kohen of the Zionist Freedom Alliance would frequently say, in his lectures, that Jews ought to support Ron Paul as the most pro-Israel candidate.

One might think that the recent drama over the debt ceiling involves one side wanting to increase or maintain spending with the other side wanting to drastically cut spending, but that is far from the truth. In spite of the rhetoric being thrown around, the real debate is over how much government spending will increase.
No plan under serious consideration cuts spending in the way you and I think about it. Instead, the “cuts” being discussed are illusory, and are not cuts from current amounts being spent, but cuts in projected spending increases. This is akin to a family “saving” $100,000 in expenses by deciding not to buy a Lamborghini, and instead getting a fully loaded Mercedes, when really their budget dictates that they need to stick with their perfectly serviceable Honda.

The first ever GAO(Government Accountability Office) audit of the Federal Reserve was carried out in the past few months due to the Ron Paul, Alan Grayson Amendment to the Dodd-Frank bill, which passed last year. Jim DeMint, a Republican Senator, and Bernie Sanders, an independent Senator, led the charge for a Federal Reserve audit in the Senate, but watered down the original language of the house bill(HR1207), so that a complete audit would not be carried out. Ben Bernanke(pictured to the left), Alan Greenspan, and various other bankers vehemently opposed the audit and lied to Congress about the effects an audit would have on markets. Nevertheless, the results of the first audit in the Federal Reserve’s nearly 100 year history were posted on Senator Sander’s webpage earlier this morning.
