  Neck and Neck: Russian and Chinese Official Gold Reserves 
Official gold reserve updates from the Russian and Chinese central banks are probably one of the more closely watched metrics in the gold world. After the US, Germany, Italy and France, the sovereign gold holdings of China and Russia are the world’s 5th and 6th largest. And with the gold reserves ‘official figures’ of the US, Germany, Italy and France being essentially static, the only numbers worth watching are those of China and Russia. The Russian Federation’s central bank, the Bank of Russia

Digging Up An Old Story
Last night instead of watching the No Fans Left political program, I decided to watch a 1931 movie starring Bela Lugosi. Being in the Halloween Season and all, I watched the original “Dracula” where the main character was charismatic, kind, considerate, wealthy, and a little off. This movie was epic and the digitally remastered film really showed the viewers a good time. Bela Lugosi was claimed to have stayed in character for 6 months past the making of the movie and I found out later that he wa

Were Americans ever fit for stateless government? 
Jacob Hornberger recently posted an article discussing his reasons why he considers the advent of the US national security state to be the worst thing the government has ever done.Bad as they are, the income tax, the federal reserve act, and government schooling don’t come close.His reason: The US national security state has “the power to kill Americans (and others) without risk of any criminal or civil liability. . . . All that US officials have to do is relate the killing to ‘national security

  A Constitutional Convention: American Suicide 
The enemies of freedom today (both liberal and conservative) are closer than ever to realizing their dream of forming a Constitutional Convention to pass crucial amendments to our present Constitution and restructure it for the modern world. The desire to get rid of the Founders’ Constitution has been a fanatical goal of political collectivists for the past 53 years when “in 1964 the Ford Foundation funded and orchestrated – via the CSDI (Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions) – the dr

  THERE JUST ISN’T ENOUGH GOLD
There are lies damned lies and Central Bank Gold statistics. Total official global gold holdings are reported to be 33,000 tonnes. That is 19% of all the gold ever produced in the world. But how can anyone ever believe any of these figures. Because no central bank ever has a public audit of all its gold holdings. Since the gold belongs to the people, they have the right to know if the gold actually exists, especially since the gold reserves are backing the currency. Why is the US gold not audite

On August 10, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) published an article about the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) custody gold and the NY Fed’s gold vault.

Nico Simons: LBMA is the front for gold market rigging by central banks
Dutch financial journalist Nico Simons today compiles admissions of central bank involvement with the gold market and concludes that the London Bullion Market Association is just a front for central bank rigging of the price of the monetary metal. The LBMA, Simons writes, provides central banks with the secrecy necessary for market rigging and this rigging, not any free market, determines the gold price. Simons' analysis is headlined "The LBMA Is a Ploy of the Central Bank Community" and it's po

  The full guide to Nazi gold and currency war 
This morning’s papers and news-shows are full of the story that in 1939 the Bank of England facilitated the sale of Nazi looted gold, not just once but at least twice during that year. Both times without approval of the British government, despite an attempt to freeze Czech assets. The story of Nazi gold is both fascinating and tragic. We take a look at ‘the greatest robbery of all time’ and draw parallels with the modern day gold migration. What is Nazi gold? Nazi gold is a phrase that refers t

Did The Dutch Central Bank Lie About Its Gold Bar List?
Head of the Financial Markets Division of the Dutch central bank, Aerdt Houben, stated in an interview for newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad published in October 2016 that releasing a bar list of the Dutch official gold reserves “would cost hundreds of thousands of euros”. In this post we’ll expose this is virtually impossible – the costs to publish the bar list should be close to zero – and speculate about the far reaching implications of this falsehood.  Recap This story started a couple of ye

  The London Gold Market: What’s behind the smoke and mirrors? 
In our last two major research pieces we have been looking at the working parts of the gold market and where the heart of it lies. We’re trying to help investors understand where gold prices are really set. Today we take a look at the London gold market, an older and arguably larger market than COMEX. A couple of weeks ago we explained how we had ‘found that the COMEX was still the beating heart of the gold market.’ Since this research piece, Bron Sucheki, whose work featured in our last piece,

Gold’s future confiscation is a growing reality, as currency confidence slides! - Part 2
This article is from previous articles featured in the Gold Forecasterweekly issues. [Subscribe:www.GoldForecaster.com]The subject of gold’s confiscation has come onto our screens again, but this time, being described as a “Myth” in the future. This thought comes from Canada, a favorite place for U.S. citizens to store their gold in the hopes that it will be outside the reach of the U.S. Federal Reserve. We respond to the article that described it as a myth, because we are firmly of the opinion

The fog around gold really isn't so obsolete at all
"One Nation Under Gold" author James Ledbetter writes in the Los Angeles Times today that the wealthier people are, the less likely they are to own gold, and that gold is best regarded as an investment by people who can't afford it. Ledbetter observes that Americans still own a lot of gold even as nobody is sure how much. Indeed, his essay is most interesting for acknowledging the fog that continues to surround gold. Ledbetter writes: "While we may think that we live in a more accountable era,

New Gold Pool at the BIS Basle: Part 2 – Pool vs Gold for Oil
This is Part 2 of a two-part series. The series focuses on collusive discussions and meetings that took place between the world’s most powerful central bankers in late 1979 and 1980 in an attempt to launch a central bank Gold Pool cartel to manipulate and control the free market price of gold. The meetings centered around the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basle, Switzerland. Part 2 takes up where Part 1 left off, and begins by looking at developments in the BIS Gold Pool discussion
