Dr. Ben Bernanke has chaired the Federal Reserve since 2006. He was previously a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, which was given the authority to coin the nation’s money in 1913 by President Woodrow Wilson.

(Feb. 7, 2013) — The Guardian has reported that a website belonging to the Federal Reserve Bank, a private corporation which prints the United States’ currency and regulates its economy, was hacked on Sunday, exposing the login and other personal information of up to 4,000 banking executives.

The group identified as having performed the hacking is “Anonymous,” to whom videos on the Second Amendment, allegations of government corruption in Italy, and election fraud have been attributed in recent days and months.

Anonymous has denied any plans to interfere with a power grid, which last year a U.S. general reported was a possibility “within the next two years.”

Statements made by alleged Anonymous members indicate that they oppose internet censorship.

A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) “insider” told journalist Doug Hagmann that a collapse of the U.S. economy which is international in scope and decades in the making could occur soon.  On January 25, a video produced by Lyndon LaRouche stated that indictments have been drawn up against Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve, and Barack Hussein Obama.

Anonymous allegedly claimed responsibility for hacking into the website of the U.S. Sentencing Commission after Aaron Swartz, a co-inventor of Reddit and RSS feeds and considered an internet genius, was found deceased in his New York City apartment.  Authorities have called his death a suicide.  Swartz had been charged with hacking into an MIT website and downloading them on his computer with the possible intent to publish them.

The website of the U.S. Department of Energy has also been hacked in recent days.  Chinese hackers have allegedly hacked The New York Times.

Anonymous has reportedly claimed responsibility for hacking the FBI, U.S. Department of Justice, local law enforcement and the Westboro Baptist Church websites.
