Did you ever hear of the Independent Treasury Act of 1920?

The Independent Treasury Act of 1920 suspended the de jure (meaning "by right of legal establishment") Treasury Department of the United States government. Our Congress turned the treasury department over to a private corporation, which when seen in its true light, is a fascist monopolistic cartel, the Federal Reserve and their agents. The bulk of the ownership of the Federal Reserve System, a very well kept secret from the American Citizen, is held by these banking interests, and NONE is held by the United States Treasury:

Rothschild Bank of London
Rothschild Bank of Berlin
Warburg Bank of Hamburg
Warburg Bank of Amsterdam
Lazard Brothers of Paris
Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy
Chase Manhattan Bank of New York
Goldman, Sachs of New York
Lehman Brothers of New York
Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York

The Federal Reserve is at the root of most of our present statutory regulations, "laws", in the control and regulation of virtually all aspects of human activity in the United States, through successively socialistic constructions laid upon the Commerce clause of the Constitution. Basically, the Federal Reserve is the "STATE" of the United States.

We've been screwed for a long time now. 7 years after the Fed reserve was created this came along.

I'm wondering if the laws of Unintended Consequence's will finally them all in. ( or us)

I don't see where it states that at all

quite the contrary, it forces .fed to allow .treas separate and traceable origins to its deposits and transactions.
Sorry, what is not stating? Was looking for that....

The Independent Treasury (IT) was a system for the retaining of government funds in the United States Treasury and its subtreasuries, independently of the national banking and financial systems. In one form or another, it existed from 1846 to 1921.

Contents
Creation of the system
The Democrats won the election of 1844 and re-established the Independent Treasury System in 1846.

The Act of August 1846 provided that the public revenues be retained in the Treasury building and in sub-Treasuries in various cities. The Treasury was to pay out its own funds and be completely independent of the banking and financial system of the nation. All payments by and to the government were to be made in either specie or Treasury Notes. The separation of the Treasury from the banking system was never completed, however; the Treasury’s operations continued to influence the money market, as specie payments to and from the government affected the amount of hard money in circulation.

Problems and its demise
Although the Independent Treasury did restrict the expansion of credit, it also posed a new set of economic problems. In periods of prosperity, revenue surpluses accumulated in the Treasury, reducing hard money circulation, tightening credit, and restraining inflation of trade and production. In periods of depression and panic, when banks suspended specie payments and hard money was hoarded, the government’s insistence on being paid in specie tended to aggravate economic difficulties by limiting the amount of specie available for private credit.

The most serious weaknesses in the system were revealed during the Civil War; under the pressures created by wartime expenditures, Congress passed the acts of 1863 and 1864 creating national banks. Exceptions were made to the prohibition against depositing government funds in private banks, and in certain cases payments to the government could be made in national bank notes.

After the Civil War, the independent Treasury continued in modified form, as each administration tried to cope with its weaknesses in various ways. Secretary of the Treasury Leslie M. Shaw (1902–1907) made many innovations; he attempted to use Treasury funds to expand and contract the money supply according to the nation’s credit needs. The Panic of 1907, however, finally revealed the inability of the system to stabilize the money market; this led to the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, which allowed the Federal Reserve System to issue Federal Reserve Notes (the powers of coining money and regulating its value were retained by the U.S. Mint and the Congress, respectively). Government funds were gradually transferred from subtreasuries to the private Federal Reserve,[1] and an act of Congress (The Independent Treasury Act of 1920[2]) mandated the closing of the last subtreasuries in the following year, thus bringing the Independent Treasury System to an end.

It basically ceased operations of the independent treasury, holding, transferring, etc funds

and combined into the .fed reserve after it had been created, otherwise known as 'central bank',

the treasury part of .gov exists and still exists as part of .gov, but the .fed acts as the central banking facility with monies deposited by .treas separate and accounted for.

this is nothing new, and was clear and evident since the creation of the .fed in '13

In '13 is when the real treason occurred and lives to this day.

I still maintain that the .fed was actually given back to the .gov in the late 30's as a gutted shell, and the real fun is in the ESF fund which is totally hidden and disguised.

which means basically that the .fed can be tipped over at anytime and a reset can occur.
