Trump keeps nominating his customers to powerful positions.
Judy Shelton, Trump's pick for the Federal Reserve Board, is just one example. Congress should ask her about her patronage of his properties during her hearing.
President Trump's latest nominee for the Federal Reserve, Judy Shelton, is under vicious attack in her nominating process.
The Deep State has already thwarted Trump's choices of Herman Cain, Stephen Moore and Marvin Goodfriend.
The Fed must be ended to defeat the Deep State.
Judy Shelton also knows that under a gold standard prior to the creation of the Federal Reserve Americans enjoyed the benefits of a consistently falling cost of living. However since the creation of the Fed Americans have suffered a cost of living that rises every single year.
The sum total argument for Judy Shelton: “Don’t worry she’s changed her entire belief system about monetary policy in the last 12 months, she’s no longer a total crank”
Judy Shelton said if she was on the FOMC she would reluctantly advocate policies she knows are bad because it would be politically expedient to implement them. This is why our nation is in so much trouble, and why the coming collapse will be so catastrophic.
Why is it courageous to stand up against government to protest segregation but not to stand up to government what it violates monetary provision of the U.S. Constitution? Is there any position that Judy Shelton has taken in the past that she is willing to defend in the present?
All of the gloom-and-doom predictions that Judy Shelton forecasts would result from the mistakes made by the Federal Reserve and Congress following the 2008 financial crisis will come true. The fact that the Fed has succeeded in delaying the day of reckoning only makes it worse!
Senator Toomey just told reporters that he has "concerns" about Trump nominee Judy Shelton, esp. that she would seek to devalue the US dollar.
Toomey says he has NOT made up his mind on how he will vote.
He says he is "not sure" if Shelton would uphold Fed independence.
Shelton last year: “I don’t see any reference to independence in the legislation that has defined the role of the Federal Reserve for the United States" https://t.co/8bODOcltkF
FDIC deposit insurance has been a disaster and Judy Shelton knows it. We would be much better off without it, and other nations like New Zealand that have eliminated it have much stronger banking systems as a result.
President Trump’s Fed nominee Judy Shelton heads to Capitol Hill today, where senators are expected to question her views on Fed independence and monetary policy. https://t.co/QqtrG8cL5Y
Judy Shelton is so worried about criticizing Trump that while she correctly criticized rising Federal budget deficits when Obama was president, she refuses to criticize budget deficits that are rising even faster under Trump. We don't need more hypocrites on the FMOC.
Judy Shelton is right that the Fed’s independence is more principle than law. But that is all the more reason to defend it https://t.co/VMsYgK51yi
The Fed's independence consists of the intellectual integrity of its leaders. After that hearing, it's hard to see how anyone who values that independence could conclude that Judy Shelton possesses the necessarily intellectual integrity.
When Fed nominee Judy Shelton faces her Senate confirmation hearing, her views on the Fed's balance sheet could offer clues about whether she would shake things up at the central bank https://t.co/lYttkeaDVu
Judy Shelton could become Trump's 5th #Fed nominee not to get confirmed by a GOP-controlled Senate.
Sen. Toomey (R-PA) and Sen. Shelby (R-AL) said they had "concerns" about her after her hearing today.
Sen. Kennedy (R-La) hasn't made up his mind, either

(ALERT) Today thank Senator Jon Tester for never wavering on his support to #keepitpublic! This is what a true public lands champion looks like! #mtpol #mtnews
A good rule of thumb in evaluating the qualifications of an economist for the Federal Reserve is that if a person is a goldbug, they don’t belong involved in monetary policy.
When it comes to issues they care about--like Fed independence--Republicans know how to say "No" to Trump https://t.co/CLjImMcGY9
