Did a 2020 Gary Gensler Video Predict a Ripple Board Member Would Be Appointed To FED Vice Chair?

I came across this video today as posted by @MasonRothschld…

Before I post the Tweet and the video, there sure do seem to be a lot of “Rothschild” Twitter accounts active in crypto, has anyone else noticed that?

You’ve got this guy:

And this guy:

And not only are they active on Twitter, but they seem to have a real focus on #XRP.

Anyone else noticed that?

Oh, and when did Nicky Hilton become Nicky Rothschild?

Anyone else find that weird?

I mean, I already knew of the family connection, I just wasn’t aware they were now flaunting it.


Ok, now back to our main story.

Mason Rothschild (full disclosure: I do not know if these accounts are “real” and connected to the infamous Rothschild family or not) posted this earlier today and it got my attention:

Now let’s break it down…

Mason seems to be implying that the recent nomination of Michael Barr as the Federal Reserve Board’s (FRB) next vice chair for supervision, a key banking regulatory post, was predicted or recommended by Gary Gensler back in 2020.

We covered the recent nomination here:

So, is this true?

Well, partially.

The clip of Gensler appears genuine, and Barr did just get nominated by Biden for Fed Vice Chair.

But that’s where the similarities seem to end.

The 2020 Gensler video appears to be referring to the nomination and appointment of the Fed Chair position, which was held by Jerome Powell beginning in 2018 for a four-year term.

That term was up in January 2022 and Biden nominated Powell for an extension, which was confirmed in January 2022 — the date and the appointment Gensler appears to be referencing in his 2020 video.

From Federal Reserve History:

Jerome Powell took office as chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in February 2018, for a four-year term ending in February 2022. His term as a member of the Board of Governors will expire January 31, 2028.

Powell was born in Washington, D.C. He received a bachelor’s degree in politics from Princeton University in 1975 and earned a law degree from Georgetown University in 1979. While at Georgetown, he was editor-in-chief of the Georgetown Law Journal.

Powell served as an assistant secretary and as undersecretary of the Treasury under President George H.W. Bush. There, he was responsible for policy on financial institutions, the Treasury debt market, and related areas. Before joining the administration, he worked as a lawyer and investment banker in New York City.

Before his appointment to the Board of Governors, Powell was a visiting scholar at the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington, D.C., where he focused on federal and state fiscal issues. From 1997 through 2005, Powell was a partner at The Carlyle Group.

So was the Michaell Barr nomination predicted?

We say there doesn’t appear to be a connection, although the appointment is still very interesting.

Captain Ahab is in agreement with our analysis:

And others point out that Gensler appears in bed with #ETH (not to mention currently in an infamous lawsuit against Ripple) so appointing anyone with a Ripple history would seem a bit nonsensical to the narrative:
