The Federal Reserve ADMITS That Its 12 Banks Are PRIVATE Not Government Entities
[link to theintelhub.com
The New York Fed is the most important Fed bank. As Bloomberg pointed out in 2009:
The New York Fed is one of 12 regional Federal Reserve banks and the one charged with monitoring capital markets. It is also managing $1.7 trillion [now up to at least $1.9 trillion] of emergency lending programs [and accepting collateral from the banks in return].
While the Feds Washington-based Board of Governors is a federal agency subject to the Freedom of Information Act and other government rules, the New York Fed and other regional banks maintain they are separate institutions, owned by their member banks, and not subject to federal restrictions.
For that reason, the New York Fed alleged in the lawsuit brought by Bloomberg to force the Fed to reveal some information about its loans Bloomberg LP v. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, 08-CV-9595, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan) that it was not subject to Federal Freedom of Information Act. As Bloomberg reported in a separate article:
'it is not the duty of the police to protect you. their job is to protect THE CORPORATION and arrest code breakers.'
