Re: German Calls for Gold Repatriation Intensify As Fed Refuses to Allow Inspection
sorry this is the wrong calculation for gold

31.103 grammes per oz
32.151 oz per kilo
1000 kilos per tonne

avoirdipois wieght system

Consider this:
Gold is (at the moment I’m writing this) \$1727.92 an ounce (according to goldprice.org)
There are 16 ounces to a pound.
There are 2000 pounds to a ton.
The Germans own 1536 tons.

\$1,727.92 x 16 = \$27,646.72 (\$/lb)
\$27,646.72 x 2000 = \$55,293,440 (\$/tn)
\$55,293,440 x 1536 = \$84,930,723,840 (Total current value of Germany’s gold holdings)

If you gave someone \$85 billion dollars to hold on to, and they would never let you see it, weigh it, touch it, or even verify that they have it, let alone wouldn’t give it back in the name of “security”, I’d say you just got robbed of \$85 billion. I’d have a very strong opinion about that if I was Germany.

Background of my avatar: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

Ecclesiastes 10:2 “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.”

We are all born ignorant, but it takes a lot of work to keep looking the other way to remain stupid.

Islam is not a race - the racism rant is lame, used by the intellectually lazy to derail the debate.

Furthermore, I consider that islam must be destroyed.

Those who have bought gold in large quantities since 2000 are dying for the world economy to collapse so their \$200 an oz gold would be worth \$5,000.

It took the FED almost 100 years to get that gold out'a there.. swaps, derivatives, credit Instruments bleh bleh.

It was all planned from the very beginning and the FED don't give two shits about what comes next.. because, their mandate expires on.. insert dramatic (drum-roll)

wait.. for it-> You Guessed it.!! Dec 21.st 2012.

They've spent 99 years replacing those bars with, pork-barreled legislation, pretend budget debates, GDP to debt ratio reforms, cut backs, round table, closed door sessions & debates that amounted to a 3-foot pile of bullshit IOU's.. they tossed in a few fancy looking certificates for appearances & they even tried counterfeiting those to prop up the illusion.

Bottom line.. the FED has obliterated the global economy & they don't give a shit. What we're seeing now is the winding up of a 'private' Corporation in preparation of an expired mandate.

They have no intentions of renewing this mandate.. why should they, after leaving this kind of a mess & fiscal time-bombs across their books the illusion is too toxic & too far gone, the timers are set.. & they will bail.

Their only intentions at this point are to cover their proverbial assets until the parachutes deploy & pray that we don't catch on before they go bye bye..

We will suffer & be left to the wrath of the world.

..& yet only a handful of "Ignorant Hippies" turned out to stop them. This is our fault, we've allowed this to happen.

Maybe Germany, Venezuela, Switzerland & the Netherlands will "pin" a few extra +karma points on us..

In their minds this is a done deal.. there's nothing left to talk about, all they need to do is sit back and placate the public until their fiscal responsibilities die on the floor.

Don't believe me, don't believe a word of anything, that any one tells you.. verify it for yourself. Write or call any one of your newly elected representatives and ask them what is on the table to replace/renew the Federal Reserve mandate next month.

All you'll get is a dial tone.. & maybe a few dead relatives, if your persistent they'll take you out too.

Hadn't seen that they extended the charter indefinitely.. but then again, once Germany orders them to open those vaults.

There's the curious clause of.. "forfeiture of franchise for violation of law." I suppose a couple thousand tonnes of missing gold would do that.

Forfeiture of franchise, is a preferred loophole.. That's how they disappear the pensions, keep the tangible assets and legally change the name to "El' Ding-Dongs.."

Their gold and silver will not help them one bit,
"
1Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. 2Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. 3Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. 4Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. 5You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.a 6You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you."

James 5. The Lord knows where you live. Look also how this verse will be fulfilled!

Isaiah 2:

"17The arrogance of man will be brought low
and the pride of men humbled;
the Lord alone will be exalted in that day,
18and the idols will totally disappear.
19Men will flee to caves in the rocks
and to holes in the ground
and the splendor of his majesty,
when he rises to shake the earth.
20In that day men will throw away
to the rodents and bats
their idols of silver and idols of gold,
21They will flee to caverns in the rocks
and to the overhanging crags
and the splendor of his majesty,
when he rises to shake the earth.
22Stop trusting in man,
who has but a breath in his nostrils.
Of what account is he?"

Arrogance of the Fed is unbelievable. If you give someone your gold to protect, and when you later demand it back but are refused then there are only two things:

1. You are a fool.
2. The one whom you gave your gold is a cheat and a thief.

Anyway, in this age of paper money who cares about gold? All you need is for some digits to be entered in the memory drive of a computer out there somewhere.

Regarding "You cant eat Gold".

Gold is a commodity, Paper is a commodity, Wheat, Rice, Beans, and Chicken Feet, are all commodities.

Gold is the ONLY commodity that does not degrade over time.

Heat, Cold, Wet, Dry storage of THIS commodity guarantees the commodity will be usable despite the passage of time.

Even with high heat, or fire, the commodity will melt and reform into nodules.

DO THAT, with any other commodity and tell me about what happens to it?

10,000 years (at least) of Gold, and Silver commodity trading cant be wrong.

On the other hand the downside with large amounts of precious metals in turbulent times is that they are easily detectable remotely with modern technology, and perhaps the safest precious metal is hidden away where few know about it.

Also it is sometimes the case that the purposefully poor has a survival advantage over the purposefully rich.

I don't know much about the details of how western powers went in to take possession of Libya's gold, but it seems that it was probably all in one place.

Maybe Libya under siege could have held onto its gold for a little longer if Gaddafi had placed vaults in as many cities and villages as possible, and placed quantities of gold in each in proportion to the local populations. The people would have that much more reason to fight for their independence from foreign powers then. One cannot posses more than they can guard.
