Right under their nose, another rigged Fed appointment. When will a non Zionist be elected? Ever?

The Senate Banking Committee on Tuesday endorsed Stanley Fischer to be vice chair of the US Federal Reserve, a nomination that needs confirmation from the full chamber.
Members of the committee gave the green light by voice vote to Fischer, tapped by President Barack Obama in January to be Fed Chair Janet Yellen’s number two.
The panel also approved Lael Brainard, a former Treasury official, to join the Fed’s Board of Governors, and endorsed current board member Jerome Powell for another term.
All three are expected to win Senate approval.
Fischer is a dual US-Israeli citizen who until last year served as the governor of Israel’s central bank.
The 70-year-old was also deputy managing director at the International Monetary Fund, from 1994 to 2001, and prior to that served as chief economist for the World Bank.
