Did the United States Steal Gold?

Germany Gives Up On Trying To Repatriate It's Gold From The Federal Reserve!!

The Bundesbank this week issued an exhaustive list of every last of the 270,316 gold bars it has stored in vaults around the world on behalf of the German nation.
The 2,300-page document revealed the detail and location of each of the bars, together containing 3,384,227.7893 kilograms or 108,805,421.213 troy ounces of gold worth just under $126 billion at today's price.
That place the European country second only to the US in terms of its official gold reserves. The central bank also said it will be updating the list on an annual basis henceforth.
While the information may assuage some of the bank's critics who've been skeptical of the existence of the bullion, those campaigning for the repatriation of Germany's gold from vaults in the US, England and France will see little progress has been made in this regard.
In January 2013 Germany's central bank, the Bundesbank, said it will ship back home all 374 tonnes it had stored with the Banque de France in Paris, as well as 300 tonnes held in Manhattan by the US Federal Reserve, by 2020.
33 months later and Buba, as the Federal Bank of Germany is often called, is not very far down this road. Paris still holds 308 tonnes, the 439 tonnes of bullion held by the Bank of England is staying put and the Fed is still sitting on 1,451 tonnes or 43% of the total.
In May 2013 year Austria, perhaps unnerved by Germany's experience with their bullion and mindful of Brown's Bottom, sent a team of auditors to check on gold held by the Bank of England.
Only 17% of Austria's 280 tonnes of gold reserves are held inside the European nation with the Bank of England holding the bulk or some 150 tonnes worth more than $6.2 billion.
Other nations have been more successful in their repatriation efforts.
In November last year, the Dutch central bank has secretly brought 120 tonnes of gold, valued at nearly $5 billion, of the European nation's gold reserves held in New York back to Amsterdam.
In November 2011, Venezuela repatriated some 180 tonnes of gold held in vaults in London and elsewhere to store it with the Caracas central bank under orders from late President Hugo Chavez.


The United States Stole Iraqi Gold & Oil?
Posted by Dr. Adrian Wong
Date: September 23, 2015
There is a conspiracy theory going around, claiming that the United States stole Iraqi gold and oil, specifically 20 trillion dollars in gold and 30 trillion dollars worth of oil. It is backed up by these pictures of American soldiers posing with gold bars, and an Al Jazeera news report.
Here is an example of the conspiracy claim that the United States stole Iraqi gold and oil :
30 trillion worth of Oil & 20 trillion in gold was stolen in the invasion on Iraq
Remember Saddam had no weapons of mass destruction and was not involved in 9/11
But his countries [sic] wealth was looted nevertheless
Then they went to Afghanistan to secure the poppy fields and lithium mines by force.
Let’s break down this conspiracy theory and see how many points are true, and how many are false.
Claim #1: 30 Trillion Worth Of Oil Was Stolen
Verdict: Mostly false. The United States did not steal Iraqi oil. They did lose track of 8.7 billion dollars worth of Iraqi funds.
Details: After the invasion of Iraq concluded, Iraqi oil was sold to help fund the Development Fund of Iraq (DFI). Other sources of funds include surplus funds (about USD 10 billion) from the UN Oil-For-Food Program, and the sale of seized Iraqi assets. The United States did not truck away Iraqi oil, as claimed.
In July 2010, the US Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) discovered that the US Department of Defense could not account properly for USD 8.7 billion of DFI funds. This led the Iraqi Parliament to request the United Nation’s help in demanding that the US return $17 billion of “oil money” that it said was stolen from the Iraqi people :
All the indications are that the institutions of the United States of America committed financial corruption by stealing the money of the Iraqi people, which was allocated to develop Iraq, (and) that it was about $17 billion. … Our committee decided to send this issue to you … to look into it and restore the stolen money.
There is no evidence that the money that was unaccounted for was repatriated to the United States, or officially taken by the United States. Even assuming that it was not poor accounting and all of the USD 8.7 billion was truly stolen, that is a far cry (0.029%) from the USD 30 trillion the conspiracy theory claimed was stolen. It is also rendered ludicrous by the fact that the United States spent USD 60 billion in the reconstruction of Iraq.
Also consider the fact that Iraqi oil production only reached 2 million barrels per day in 2007. Assuming an average sale price of USD 60 per barrel, it would take them 685 years to sell enough oil to make USD 30 trillion.
Claim #2: 20 Trillion Worth Of Gold Was Stolen
Verdict: False. The United States did not steal Iraqi gold. The gold bars (as well as currency and other valuables) were transported to Kuwait to be analysed for their purity and valued, before they are sent to the Central Iraqi Treasury.
Detail: Do you recognise this man? He’s Lt. Col. Scott Schmidt, who was in charge of the 230th Finance Battalion. The battalion’s job was to seize Iraqi assets like currency, gold bars and other valuables.
These assets would be transported to the US Army’s headquarters in Kuwait where they were examined by the Secret Service and/or the US Department of Treasury to determine their authenticity and value. The assets were then returned to the Central Iraqi Treasury or the Development Fund of Iraq (DFI).
In 2003, Iraq had under 6 tonnes of gold reserves, worth less than USD 70 million. So how can the United States steal 20 trillion dollars worth of gold from Iraq? USD 20 trillion worth of gold would weigh at least 1,714,285 tonnes in 2003.
Guess how much gold mankind has ever mined? Just 171,300 tonnes – under 10% of what the conspiracy theory claims the United States stole from Iraq. As of April 2013, the value of all the gold in the world was just USD 8.2 trillion – 27% of what the conspiracy theory claims the United States stole from Iraq.
Claim #3: Saddam Had No Weapons Of Mass Destruction & Was Not Involved In 9/11
Verdict: True. After US-led forces occupied Iraq, they couldn’t find any weapon of mass destruction. The Iraq Survey Group finally concluded that Iraq ended its WMD programs in 1991.
To justify their invasion, the Bush Administration regularly implied a link between Saddam Hussein and the 9/11 attacks. However, they never declared outright that Iraq was directly or indirectly responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attack. Needless to say, history has proven that Saddam Hussein and the Iraqis were not involved in the September 11 attack.
Claim #4: After Invading Iraq, the Americans Invaded Afghanistan
Verdict: False. The Americans invaded Afghanistan before they invaded Iraq.
Details: The United States launched Operation Enduring Freedom with the United Kingdom, invading Afghanistan in October 2001. Only in March 2003 did the Americans invade Iraq in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Claim #5: The Americans Invaded Afghanistan To Secure The Poppy Fields & Lithium Mines
Verdict: False. The Americans invaded Afghanistan because the Taliban refused to extradite Osama bin Laden to the United States, and expel al-Qaeda from Afghanistan. The massive lithium deposit in Afghanistan was only discovered 6 years later in 2007.
Details: Poppy has been cultivated in Afghanistan since the Soviet invasion in 1979, as a means to fund the Mujahideen. If the Americans were interested in the opium trade, President Reagan wouldn’t have declared the War on Drugs on the 14th of October, 1982. They also would have stuck around after the Soviets withdrew from Afghanistan in 1989.
The Americans did not invade Afghanistan until the September 11 attacks forced them to deal aggressively with the al-Qaeda threat. They invaded Afghanistan on the 7th of October 2011, after the Taliban refused to extradite Osama bin Laden to the United States, and expel al-Qaeda from Afghanistan.
The claims of lithium mines was based on a 2007 US Geological Survey report. It revealed that Afghanistan has the world’s largest reserves of lithium, as well as huge deposits of iron, gold, cobalt, copper and other valuable minerals. The US Geological Survey only began the effort with aerial surveys in 2006 before conducting a more sophisticated survey in 2007 that resulted in the report.
However, the report never came to the attention of both the American and Afghan governments until more than two years later. In 2009, a Pentagon task force that created business development programs in Iraq was transferred to Afghanistan. They stumbled upon the geological data, and brought in mining experts to check and validate the data. Only in 2010 was the importance of the 2007 report revealed.
Since the survey was only initiated in 2006, five years after the Americans invaded Afghanistan, it is temporally impossible for the unknown lithium deposits to be the “real reason” for the invasion of Afghanistan.
As of 2015, there is no lithium mine in Afghanistan. In fact, none of the new mineral reserves discovered in the 2007 USGS report has been mined.
What About The Al Jazeera News Report?
The conspiracy theory actually includes this screenshot of an Al Jazeera news report that purportedly shows them reporting on “Iraq’s Missing Wealth“.
The United States Stole Iraqi Gold & Oil? - The Rojak Pot
Well, that was from a June 2011 Al Jazeera news report, which you can view here :
As you can see, Al Jazeera never claimed that the United States stole Iraqi gold or oil. In fact, the missing money originated from the United States. The Bush Administration sent USD 20 billion in funds to Iraqi ministries in 2004. Of those funds, USD 6.6 billion could not be accounted for due to missing documents.
Osama al-Nujaifi, the Iraqi Parliament Speaker, disputed the figure in 2011, arguing that the Development Fund of Iraq (DFI) lost USD 18.7 billion. No matter whether the unaccounted funds is really USD 18.7 billion or just USD 6.6 billion, they are far smaller than the absurd claim that the United States looted the Iraqis of USD 20 trillion in gold and USD 30 trillion in oil.

After years of the Fed refusing an Audit Of The Gold In Fort Knox...We Find It's Empty. . .

Mystery about Germany´s Gold in the US Solved
Christof Lehmann (nsnbc)
Jul 31st, 2013
Nobody wants to admit it openly. The German Gold Reserves in the United States are gone, used for financing the United States war chest and bet for “Global Full Spectrum Dominance”. So why is even the German Federal Bank trying to avoid further speculation by referring to a non-existent “full transparency” ? The answer is quite simple. Nobody wants the current backwardation of the gold market to turn into a permanent backwardation of the gold market. The consequence would be the inevitable collapse of global trade and civilization as we know it.
International report from April 2013 “in the money” – “to take to the bank”. In April 2013, nsnbc international published a report by nsnbc contributor, Prof. Long Xinming, revealing that the German government had asked to visit the vaults of the US Federal Reserve to determine the actual existence of the German gold reserves.
Germany has deposited about half of its gold reserves in the USA. The FED refused to permit Germany to examine its own gold, stating “security” and “no room for visitors” as reasons. Nothing else.
When Germany finally was “permitted” an audit, the auditors were admitted into the vault´s anté chamber where 5 or 6 gold bars were shown to them as “representative for Germany's holdings”.
The German auditors apparently returned a second time, when the FED granted them permission to “look into” 1 of 9 rooms without allowing them to enter or touch the gold, before the auditors were sent back home to Germany. The report on nsnbc prompted worldwide discussions.
US Gold ReservesIn July 2013, the US American hedge-fund manager William Kaye created a stir when he picked-up the ball, stating:
"Germany won´t ever see its gold again…… Central Banks, such as the FED, where most of the reserves had been deposited, had lent the gold to U.S. Banks such as Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.
The gold has been used in the market to lower the gold price and the FED has received securities in exchange…. Germany won´t ever see that gold again, because it is safely kept in my accounts and the accounts of our investors”. 
William Kaye, who previously has been working for Goldman Sachs is by no means a “nobody” on the global markets, and the fact that his statement caused a stir was less surprising than the surprise non-insiders got when they heard the news about Germany´s gold. In fact, nsnbc´s initial report was doubted by many but was, as it turned out right “in the money”, one could, so to speak, take our report to the bank.
Federal Bank. A Real Embarrassment and Non-Existent Transparency. Not surprisingly either, is the fact that the situation became an embarrassment for the German Federal Bank, Deutsche Bundesbank (DB).
A DB speaker said, that the Deutsche Bundesbank told the German financial publication “Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten” (German Market News), that the DB does not want to comment on the statement and referred to the full transparency which it had provided about the German gold reserves in January 2013. “The situation” said the DB spokesperson, “has remained unchanged since then”. The statement however, was only 50 % true. The true 50 % of the statement is, that the Deutsche Bundesbank does not want to comment.
The untrue 50 % is the statement about the purported full transparency which the DB has provided in January 2013. While it is understandable that it is an embarrassment that one´s purported “ally“, whom many Germans consider more of a political, economical, cultural and not to forget military occupier rather than an ally, has the audacity to put Germany´s auditors off with “no place for visitors” and shows them 1 of 9 chambers, “but don´t enter and touch” after protests from Berlin, is understandable.

After all, no German functionary would ever be allowed to, and no German politician in his right mind would ever dare to say, that “Germany still has not regained its full sovereignty”without risking the carrier – or more.
But talking about full transparency is equivalent to literally ask for trouble from one´s compatriots.
The demand that Germany repatriate its physical gold reserves is becoming increasingly outspoken, and not only among German patriots and conservatives like Member of Parliament for the Christian Social Union, CSU, Peter Gauweiler.
After all, it can hardly have escaped the DB spokesperson and German as well as international observers, that Germany´s Federal Accounting Office has issued a statement in late 2012, in which it criticized the Deutsche Bundesbank because it had not ever had any of its staff to personally audit the German gold reserves abroad. That is, “Not Ever”.
No Audit of German Reserves “Ever”. Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (German Market News) also asked the DB spokesperson whether any of the German Federal Bank´s officials has ever taken to Paris or the USA to personally audit the German gold reserves. The DB spokesperson replied, or rather tried to avoid answering the question, saying:
“The Deutsche Bundesbank has, with regard to the storage, appropriate storage and deposit contracts with those Central Banks with whom the gold is being deposited”.
He then added, that these contracts, however, were subject to confidentiality, and by the way, he added, “the Chair for Cash, Settlements and Payment Systems of the Deutsche Bundesbank, Carl-Ludwig Thiele had said in January that he had been there”.
Given this answer, the journalist probably knew that his job would be entering the “Danger Zone” if he would have asked:
"Was there ? Where ? In France ? In New York ? Did Herr Carl-Ludwig Thiele inspect the gold and how much was there ? Is it documented anywhere ? Can I see a copy ? I mean, we are speaking about full transparency right ?"
An ode to independent media! So, the poor German journalist could keep his job, the Bundesbank spokesperson was proud about his evasive PR skills and that he could keep his job, and we remain in the dark. Everybody is happy. Right ? Business as usual !
The effect of the Deutsche Bundesbank´s complicity in covering-up  the obvious theft of Germany´s gold reserves by Germany´s occupying ally USA, the United States blatant arrogance in dealing with his “Trans-Atlantic Partners in Germany” however is beginning to backfire.
How much longer the scandal can be contained is becoming increasingly questionable, and Germans begin to organize themselves to demand the repatriation of the country´s gold reserves.
A group of renown Germans, including the member of the European Taxpayers Association, Rolf Baron von Hohenhau, Peter Boehringer of the German Precious Metals Society, M.P. Frank Scäffler, Author and former IBM Germany CEO, Prof. Hans O. Henkel, Ralf Flier, the Editor in Chief of Smart Investor Magazine, and numerous others have organized themselves in the Association “Repatriate Our Gold” (Holt unser Gold Heim)
The Co-Initiator of the Initiative, Peter Boehringer, states that he considers it absolutely plausible, that the German gold reserves no longer exist within the USA in terms of physical gold bars. Moreover, Boehringer states, that one can strongly suspect it. Boehringer concludes:
“We do believe the Deutsche Bundesbank in its statements, but we do not believe that the Bundesbank can believe what its contractual partners say. The Deutsche Bundesbank simply cannot be sure, that the gold reserves still are present at the FED in the form of gold bars” .
“The Bundesbank does not even officially claim this, or cannot prove the physical presence according to appropriate principles of accounting. The Bundesbank has officially informed us, that the depots and Partner Central Banks have a marvelous integrity, and that the doubts, which we have forwarded in the form of questions, are unsubstantiated”.

(right) Federal Reserve Note legends on dollars, 1928 and 1934
He then, correctly remarks the fact which the Bundesbank obviously attempts to omit, which is, that the FED has not performed any official audit of its gold holdings since 1953, and the fact that the Americans they don´t even trust the FED. Ask any US citizen in any major city in the USA and ask: “Can the FED be trusted?”. If you can ask the question with a straight face, people will either believe that you are retarded or that you are part of a new “Candid Camera show”.
Repatriate Our Gold therefore demands, that the Deutsche Bundesbank publishes all the lists with the gold bar numbers of gold bars, which are deposited abroad as well as in Germany.
The question one may ask is, whether the publication of the gold bar numbers would add any credibility to the claims that the gold is physically present, and the ultimate proof can only be given by a full inspection, rather than a dog and pony show, in which German auditors at the fed are shown one out of nine vaults “but don´t enter and don´t touch”. Repatriate Our Gold is therefore still insisting on a full, physical audit of the gold.
Repatriate Our Gold warns, that the repatriation of the German gold reserves from the USA and France by 2020, as the Bundesbank states it would, is far from sufficient. Boehringer states, that the Bundesbank seem to be betting on time because, as he states:
“If German gold reserves really have been used as collateral, one will first have to buy them back”.
And here, Boehringer is touching the most touchy of issues. It is correct, that the FED would first have to buy the gold before it could deliver, but the trouble is, that the gold-market has been in backwardation since early July 2013. To buy gold requires that there is someone who is able and willing to sell gold, and with the market being in backwardation that is impossible.
According to a nsnbc international report with World Bank whistleblower Karen Hudes, we may be facing a global currency war as corruption at the World Bank unsettles the gold market. Karen Hudes has worked 20 years as legal counsel at the World Bank´s legal department. Hudes was sacked in retaliation after she blew the whistle and reported massive corruption in the Bretton Woods institutions.
Hudes has since been reinstated, but the US administration continues its retaliation, and is, as a stakeholder analysis shows, under arrest of a conglomerate or megabank, has Hudes describes it, which prevents that the USA begins to comply with international accounting standards.
Already in May, Hudes warned that the consequence of failure to address the problems would be a permanent backwardation of the gold market and a global currency war that would, one started, grind world trade to a standstill. Moreover, Hudes states:
“A stakeholder analysis derived from accurate game theory modeling shows a clear fork in the road for the United States: rule of law and the transatlantic alliance or corruption and the ascendency of China.”
It may very well be that the United States and Germany, the FED and the Deutsche Bundesbank perceive it as being in their shared interest to cover-up the fact that Germany´s gold is gone, that:
"Germany won´t ever see its gold again…… Central Banks, such as the FED, where most of the reserves had been deposited, had lent the gold to U.S. Banks such as Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. The gold has been used in the market to lower the gold price and the FED has received securities in exchange…. Germany won´t ever see that gold again, because it is safely kept in my accounts and the accounts of our investors”. 
as William Kaye said it. The shared interest would in that case be the attempt to prevent the permanent backwardation, the subsequent currency war and the grinding of world trade to a hold. The problem for both the FED and the Bundesbank is, that the “Gini has left the bottle”, the truth is out and no complicity of silence will make it return into the bottle on its own volition. More simplified: “How to get the paste back into the tube?”.
When push comes to shove we will see that the German gold and the gold of numerous other countries who deposited their gold in the USA after WW II has been used to line the pockets of the US military industrial complex and has financed the US bet for global, full-spectrum dominance. Not surprisingly, many, especially older Germans come to think “Dresden and Pforzheim” when they are confronted with that fact.

Who Stole the GOLD on 9/11?
Posted by  Greg Bacon
Wednesday, September 28, 2011
The BIG Question is, was there any gold in the vaults or had it been stolen before the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB of 9/11?
Did the gold wind up in Israel's Negev Desert, where it was cast into a giant, golden calf?:)
Picture of the purloined gold that is now in Israel, being worshiped by the Zionist thieves in 'StolenLand.'
At least several HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS of gold missing from the WTC complex during the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB of 9/11
Damn, isn't Bin Laden and 'al CIA duh' shrewd? They not only could evade the ENTIRE intelligence apparatus of the Western world, cause havoc at NORAD so they wouldn't be able to protect the USA on 9/11, knew exactly where those blind radar spots that can't pick up errant jets and also knew where to steal several billion dollars worth of gold!!!
November 2, 2001: Giuliani Reduces Number of Firefighters at Ground Zero, Following Recovery of Gold New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani angers firefighters when he decides to severely reduce the number of them that can search for remains at Ground Zero. Until now, up to 300 firefighters at a time have been involved in the search and recovery effort. Giuliani’s decision will mean no more than 25 at a time can do so in future.
So far, the bodies or remains of 101 firefighters have been recovered, out of the 343 who died at the World Trade Center on 9/11. According to the IAFF, the mayor refuses to even meet with local union presidents about the decision [to stop looking for FF remains AFTER the gold was found]. Due to the ensuing public outcry, Giuliani will modify his policy and allow firefighters back on the pile at Ground Zero. The remains of another 113 firefighters will subsequently be found. The IAFF later alleges that “the mayor’s switch to a scoop-and-dump coincided with the final removal of tens of millions of dollars of gold, silver and other assets of the Bank of Nova Scotia that were buried beneath what was once the towers” (see (Mid-October-mid November 2001)). “Once the money was out, Giuliani sided with the developers that opposed a lengthy recovery effort, and ordered the scoop-and-dump operation so they could proceed with redevelopment.”
Gold? Did someone mention Gold?
9-11 WTC Biggest Gold Heist in History: $300 Billion in Bars
The fate of nearly $1 billion worth of gold, silver and other precious metals stored beneath the WTC before 9-11 continues to baffle many.
The Times piece also reported that some of the recovered gold may have been found outside this vault.
“The gold, which was discovered . . . was being transported through the basement of the building on the morning of Sept. 11,” reads the article. “Recovery workers reached a service tunnel and discovered a 10-wheel [truck] and a number of cars [that] had been crushed by falling steel.”
Was the uncovered 10-wheel truck the last in a fleet of gold-laden rigs with an armed security escort? Did personnel decide to abandon these vehicles and flee on foot as they heard the structure above them giving way? Answers to these questions may never be fully addressed so long as the federal government refuses to revisit the 9-11 tragedy with an adequate investigation.
Meanwhile, some insist the official story is an unabashed lie and that another reason behind the 9-11 attacks was to pull off the biggest gold heist in history. One of the more outrageous claims along this vein comes from former mob boss Tony Gambino, who declared in a 2007 radio interview: “I know for a fact that Bush [and other] U.S. government leaders had prior knowledge and helped organize 9-11. They did it for many obvious reasons, one being to instigate a war in Iraq. But they also did it to get their hands on all the gold that was hidden below the [WTC].”
"Who you going to believe, the Feds or your lying eyes?"
Missing Building Contents
Accounts of Ground Zero agree on the thoroughness of the destruction. What remained was primarily the structural steel, other metal pieces, paper, and dust. Not only were the non-metallic parts of the building -- such as concrete and glass -- pulverized, so were the building contents, as firefighter Joe Casaliggi recalls.
"You have 10-story buildings that leave more debris than these two 100-story towers, Where the f___ is everything? A serious week-long search and we've found 200 [bodies] in a pile of 5,000? What's going on? Where is everyone? Why aren't we finding more bodies? Cause it's all vaporized -- turned to dust. We're breathing people in that dust."
The levelings may have destroyed evidence of crimes beyond just plane impacts and building collapses. There were vaults of gold bullion in the basement of 4 World Trade Center, but the amount of gold recovered seems to be only a small fraction of the amount known to be stored there. Was the gold stolen? Being a dense, malleable metal, gold should not have been broken up by whatever destroyed the towers. Gold is also one of the most inert elements, and is extremely unlikely to participate in chemical reactions. Even if it were possible to pulverize and disperse the gold, its storage in the basement of WTC 4 assured that it escaped the violent forces that pulverized the towers.

Attempted Theft?
Confessions Of A 911 Hitman: How & Why I Helped Blow Up The World Trade Center
Or was the REAL gold stolen and replaced by gold-colored tungsten bars, which now seem to be popping up all over the world?
9/11 was a FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB pulled off by the White House; elements of he CIA and FBI and ISRAEL.
The 300 billion in gold pales in comparison with the TRILLIONS stolen from American 401k accounts and pension funds, by those "Too Big to Fail" Wall Street bankster gangsters, who hid their thefts behind the 'War of Terror' and using their Zionist owned, Jewish run MSM to scare Americans non-stop with horrifying tales of non-existent Muslim boogiemen.

Ron Paul Request Audit For Fort Knox And If The IMF/Federal Reserve Has The Gold
Uploaded on Aug 15, 2011
Are the gold bars in Fort Knox really made of the precious metal? Or has the government secretly sold off the stockpile and replaced it with tungsten bars that are painted gold?
Ron Paul wants to find out.
Giving legitimacy to a conspiracy theory that the gold in Fort Knox is fake, the iconoclast Republican congressman from Texas has asked administration officials to audit the purity of the nation's 700,000 gold bars held in Fort Knox, according to an internal Treasury document obtained by CNBC. Paul, a presidential candidate who chairs the House subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy, had previously called for the U.S. gold reserve to be counted and for a return to the gold standard. He now appears to be going a step further in his request that representatives from the U.S. Treasury Department and the U.S. Mint testify at a subcommittee hearing on June 23 about the authenticity of the nation's gold.
As a postscript to the story, CNBC asked for a tour of Fort Knox to film the gold, since our only footage of Fort Knox is from 1974. An official at the Mint told us that not he was not aware that any member of Congress had toured the facility since that year. Fort Knox is "a closed facility," the official said.

There is NO gold at Ft. Know, the crooks at the Federal Reserve already stole OUR gold as collateral for the funny money they sell us as debt.
