time traveling with her husband and visiting friends
and family across America, Anne Cronin, the head
of First Amendment Books, has announced her retirement
from the staff of AMERICAN

will be sorry to see our friend and colleague
moving on. Her contributions to our efforts have
the years she has racked up innumerable accomplishments
and has won the admiration of those who have supported
AFP and — before the emergence of AFP —
Liberty Lobby, the Capitol Hill-based populist
institution where Anne had worked for many years
before that—going all the way back to 1964
when, fresh out of high school, she got her job
with Liberty Lobby by accident.

to get a job, and Anne waited in the car. It turned
out that there was another job available at Liberty
Lobby and Anne’s friend stepped outside
and asked Anne if she was interested in applying.
She applied, and she got the job.
remained with Liberty Lobby until its untimely
end in 2001 when the populist institution was
scuttled and run out of business by a corrupt
federal judge. During those years she established
herself as the proverbial “go to”
lady — a whirlwind of energy, a people person
of the first order and the driving force behind
many successful Liberty Lobby conferences and
other activities over the years.
AFP was established after Liberty Lobby’s
fall, Anne jumped into action and helped launch
BOOKS and continued to play
a central role in the operations of the new publication.

(now in heaven) — big names and not-so-big
names — with whom she worked over the years:
Liberty Lobby’s Board of Policy Chairman
Colonel Curtis B. Dall; the hard-driving correspondent
Andrew St. George, who pioneered some of the big
stories published by Liberty Lobby’s weekly
newspaper, The Spotlight; the colorful
European nobleman, Alec de Montmorency, rightful
heir to the title grand duke of Luxembourg, who
was a Spotlight correspondent —
the list goes on and on.

not having the opportunity to talk with all of
those great people whom I’ve come to know,
over the phone and in person, who've been such
great supporters of AFP."

REVIEW FROM AFP
‘New’ Old Book Is
Last Word on Fed
By Anne D. Cronin
talks about the Federal Reserve money fraud but
few have ever really come up with a Constitutional
solution to dealing with the problem. And even
some of the most prominent critics of the Fed
today — including some big names we won’t
mention here — obviously don’t understand
what the Fed is really all about.
it or not, but some of these big-name critics
of the Fed still believe the old myth that the
Fed is a “government agency” and as
such, these Fed critics want to get the government
out of the economic arena and let “free
enterprise” (that is, the big banks) run
our money system.
fact, as most AFP readers know, the Federal Reserve
is a privately owned banker’s monopoly of
America’s money system. There’s nothing
“federal” about it at all.
more importantly, it is entirely un- constitutional.
Our Founding Fathers intended — as the Constitution
makes clear — that the government should
indeed be the arbiter of our nation’s monetary
system. The last thing they wanted was for the
power over our nation’s money to be in the
hands of private bankers.
in 1913 the biggest private bankers of all put
over the biggest scam ever foisted on the American
people: they railroaded through Congress the enactment
of the Federal Reserve System, presenting it as
a mechanism to control the power of big money
over the economy when, instead, it was precisely
the years there have only been a handful of congressmen
who have dared to challenge the Federal Reserve
no holds barred. And one of the most diligent
and persistent was the late Rep. JerryVoorhis

entitled Out of Debt, Out of Danger —

makes Out of Debt, Out of Danger so particularly
valuable is that Voorhis provides Americans with
a viable, rational, realistic — and constitutional
— solution to the problem of the Fed. His
proposal is no pie-in-thesky pipedream that can
be dismissed as “radical” or “revolutionary”
(in the negative senses of those words) and offers
thoughtful people some solid analysis of what
the Fed is — and what the Fed is not —
popular misconceptions notwithstanding.
serious student of the Fed will fail to read —
and study — Out of Debt, Out of Danger,
the one book — out of them all — that
was written by a government insider who understood
the Fed and, more importantly, how to bring it
