Speakers and Panelists at 2019 Economic Policy Symposium

From: Who Controls America?

Webmaster’s comment: According to economist, Catherine Austin Fitts, the attendees at this symposium decided to “go direct.” This means scrapping existing currencies in favor of bio-medically implanting all people on the planet so they can be hooked up to the Department of Defense’s Cloud (brain-machine-interface) network.

If one looks at the names of the directors of the Federal Reserve on the above article, numerous others also appear to have Jewish names as well.

Summary: Of the seven (7) Federal Reserve Board governors, four (4) are Jews. This is a numerical representation of 57%. Of the twelve (12) Federal Reserve District Bank presidents, four (4) are Jews. This is a numerical representation of 33%. Jews are approximately 2% of the U.S. population.* Therefore Jews are over-represented on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors by a factor of 28.5 times (2,850 percent), and over-represented among the Federal Reserve District Bank presidents by a factor of 16.5 times (1,650 percent).
