NC Chapter of National End the Fed 2012

September 22, 2012 National “End the Fed” rally day: a day in which protestors gathered outside of Federal Reserve establishments across the nation in order to call attention to currency-debasing practices of the Federal Reserve. The rallies came within weeks of Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke announcing that the Federal Reserve would be implementing a third round of quantitative easing (Q.E.3), a practice with which many of the protestors voiced frustration. Charlotte was home to North Carolina’s chapter of the National End the Fed rally.

North Carolina State House Rep. Glen Bradley stated while addressing the protestors, “(By the Constitution) The value of money is directly attached to public election for a reason. Without it, our savings and our children’s savings are stolen by the inflation tax and we don’t even have a voice. No taxation without representation! I think I’ve heard that before. You would not vote to lay debt upon your own children, and you would not vote to steal the money from your own dollars and give them to the government or to private banks, so YOU are not being represented. The fed’s claim to fame is that it’s private and that it’s secret, so it’s away from all this political pressure. No. It’s been taken away from the voters now.” http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/25614208

Special thanks to a couple of hard-working “unsung” liberty heroes:
Michael Heise, 23-year old organizer of the National End the Fed rally effort and Chuck Suter, North Carolina grassroots organizer of the Charlotte End the Fed rally.

Upcoming NC “End the Fed” Rally; Constituents Petition NC Senator to Support Audit the Fed

North Carolina has one senator who has not yet signed on as a cosponsor of S202, a bill to perform a full audit the federal reserve. Kay Hagan also sits on the Senate Banking Committee, the committee responsible for allowing S202 to be heard by the Senate. If the Banking Committee does not allow Audit the Fed to move out of committee, the bill will die this year, having never been heard by the Senate. Hagan’s constituents appeal to her to support an audit of the federal reserve.

Carolina Liberty PAC will be present for the “End the Fed” rally discussed in the video: September 22 at noon across from the federal reserve building in Charlotte, NC. Some of the speakers include: NC State House Rep. Glen Bradley, Campaign for Liberty NC State Coordinator Adam Love, Congressional Candidate Mike Steinberg, Liberty Activist Nick Williams, Ron Paul National Delegate from NC and Veteran Daniel Rufty, and many more!

Activists Push to Decriminalize Midwifery in NC

At the North Carolina State Republican Convention held in June of 2012, there was ONE important amendment made to the State Republican Platform. The amendment stated that the North Carolina Republican Party believes in decriminalizing the practice of at-home births performed by certified professional midwives. To learn more about the changes in the platform and how they pertain to the republican viewpoint, the Caldwell County Republican Women’s Club invited a few informed guest speakers to address their group on: general information on the issue, some of the struggles faced by non-nurse midwives in NC, why this is such an important issue for republicans and for anyone concerned with freedom of choice in healthcare as well as the general state of liberty for the people of North Carolina, and the legislative status of decriminalization in NC. Guest Speakers include:

Amanda Lyle : former Chair of the College Republicans at Meredith College, Citizen Activist for decriminalization of midwifery

Chuck Suter : Founder of MidwifeAdvocates.Org and NC State Republican Delegate credited with the proposal of the motion to adopt the platform change on CPM decriminalization

Russ Fawcett : Vice President of North Carolina Friends of Midwives, the group leading the legislative effort on CPM decriminalization

North Carolina Liberty Delegate to RNC: Rebecca Christenbury

Ron Paul's oldest delegate to the 2012 RNCRon Paul's oldest delegate to 2012 RNC
Meet Rebecca Christenbury. At 91 years old, Rebecca is the oldest delegate to the entire 2012 Republican National Convention. She is a survivor of Pearl Harbor. She has supported Ron Paul for 30 years, and finally met him on Sunday evening after his “We are the Future” rally. She asked him to run again in 2016. She told him, ‘you’re not too old, take my word for it!’ 😀
Walking toward the convention center, Rebecca ran into some friendly Ron Paul supporters who asked to do a quick interview. I thought it was very cool because Rebecca said that the one thing she forgot to tell Ron Paul when she met him was that she had been a supporter for 30 year, and a few minutes later she was presented with the opportunity to speak to the camera with what she forgot to tell him. Perhaps the video will make its way back around to him, so that she will have been able to let him know, after all!  By the way, the reason we were rushing from the interview is, this was the day that the buses detained the delegates from many states, and some buses simply never showed, so we were extremely late and rushing to get to the convention center. Here is one of the livestreams from her interview with RP folks:

http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/25022011

Fox News said this about her: “91-year-old Rebecca Christenbury is a Pearl Harbor survivor and attended her first-ever national political convention. “Life happens,” she explained as to why it took her so long. She gives good reviews to Tampa as host though would have preferred Ron Paul as the GOP nominee.”
