Ukraine Loses All 33 Tonnes of Its National Gold Early One Morning

33 Tonnes of Ukraine gold gone

unmarked plane spir­it­ed 33 Tonnes of Gold away

It seems that last week 33 Tonnes of Gold left the Ukraine in an unmarked
air­craft and has left the coun­try, pre­sum­ably for safe­keep­ing, but more than
like­ly for­ev­er. I doubt that the Ukrain­ian Peo­ple will ever see that Gold
again.

The sto­ry broke two weeks ago in the Ukrain­ian Russ­ian lan­guage pub­li­ca­tion iskra
News
.

Here is what the arti­cle states:

  • event took place at ‘Boryspil Inter­na­tion­al Air­port’
  • event occurred at 2 am
  • over 40 heavy box­es loaded
  • about 15 men in black with body armor — some armed with rifles
  • some oth­er men got onto the plan
  • The plane took-off in a hur­ry (emer­gency take-off) des­ti­na­tion unknown
  • When work­ers report­ed to local air­port author­i­ties they were told to “mind their own busi­ness”
  • The vehi­cles used to load to bring the box­es were unmarked
  • Order was giv­en by act­ing Prime Min­is­ter Arseniy Yas­tenyuk

Here is my take on this sto­ry:

  • The Gold is gone for­ev­er
  • dis­ap­peared into the same black-hole as the Gaddafi Gold dur­ing the NATO raid on Libya
  • Mr Yas­tenyuk is not an elect­ed leader of Ukraine
  • Mr Yas­tenyuk has expe­ri­ence as a Cen­tral Banker — is this real­ly a coin­ci­dence?
  • rumor #1 — that the Gold was flown to the New York Fed­er­al Reserve
  • rumor #2 — flow to Switzer­land to be shared/stored by Yulia Tymoshenko and cronies
  • plane was unwmarked and had no win­dows — hmm­mm — if it was a 737 it is prob­a­bly CIA Oper­a­tions
  • rumor #3 — Black­wa­ter did the dirty work — any filth Wash­ing­ton needs done can be done by these guys — mur­der­ing, rap­ping, loot­ing, sack­ing …
  • GATA — Chris Pow­ell — New York Fed on Ukrain­ian gold reserves: Don’t ask us
  • GATA — Chris Pow­ell — Russ­ian-Ukrain­ian news site describes trans­fer of Ukrain­ian gold to U.S.

Here is a Google Trans­la­tion of the text:

As our site work­ers air­port “Borispol” , this night in 2–00 , with the des­ig­nat­ed air­port run­way start­ed unreg­is­tered trans­port plane …

Accord­ing to the staff “Boryspil” , before it came to the air­port four col­lec­tor car and two car­go minibus Volk­swa­gen, thus, all the arriv­ing truck license plate miss­ing . Car pulled out of about fif­teen peo­ple in black uni­forms , masks and body armor . Some of them were armed with machine guns . These peo­ple have down­loaded the plane more than forty heavy box­es …

After that , some mys­te­ri­ous men arrived too entered the plane . All load­ing was car­ried out in a huge hur­ry . After unload­ing the car with­out license plates imme­di­ate­ly left the run­way , and the plane took off on an emer­gency basis …

All who saw this mys­te­ri­ous “spe­cial oper­a­tion” air­port offi­cials imme­di­ate­ly noti­fied the admin­is­tra­tion of ” Boryspil “, from which received a strong rec­om­men­da­tion ” not to med­dle in oth­er peo­ple’s busi­ness” …

Lat­er, the edi­tors called back one of the senior offi­cials of the for­mer Min­istry of income and fees, which report­ed that , accord­ing to him, tonight, on the orders of one of the ” new lead­ers ” of Ukraine in the Unit­ed States has been tak­en all the gold reserves in Ukraine …

So all very sus­pi­cious. Very, very sup­si­cious.

Quote — Norm Franz on Gold, Silver and Debt

Norm Franz takes some quality time out to pose for a photo

Norm Franz — Author and great quo­ta­tion com­pos­er

Gold is the mon­ey of kings, sil­ver is the mon­ey of gen­tle­men, barter is the mon­ey of peas­ants — but debt is the mon­ey of slaves ”

  • Norm Franz (Author, 2001)

Norm Franz is an author and con­cerned about mon­ey. He is also con­cerned about reli­gion and scrip­tures which are not so applic­a­ble to me. But what I can say is that this quote is bang on! It is a mas­ter­ful quote. It is lift­ed from his book Mon­ey and Wealth in the New Mil­len­ni­um (2001).

A much sim­pler ver­sion of the phrase exist­ed for hun­dreds (if not thou­sands) of years before in the form of “Gold is the mon­ey of Kings”.

By buy­ing Gold you can start to get out of our debt based mon­e­tary system…Before it collapses…Which it only a mat­ter of time now…

I think that says it all.

Stop Thief!” — I am Being Robbed Blind!

We are surrounded by the Thievery Coporation - arm yourself with knowledge, a plan and take action now!

The Mas­ter Thief — But just who is it?

Most of humankind are being fleeced every­day and for the most part they are not even aware of it. Let me elab­o­rate if I may. In fact this has gone on for so long (longer than any­one alive can remem­ber), and so con­sis­tent­ly that peo­ple now think that this is nor­mal. How­ev­er, I am here to tell you — this is any­thing but.

Ques­tion: What was the price of an ounce of Gold in USD on May 1st 1933?

Answer: 20.67 USD/Ounce

Ok, so anoth­er ques­tion — just to make the point.

Ques­tion: What was the price of an ounce of Gold in USD on May 1st 2013?

Answer: 1,400 USD/Ounce (approx.)

So what’s the deal here?

The point is eas­i­er to under­stand if we invert the num­bers and take the rec­i­p­ro­cal (i.e.divide 1/[gold-price]). Refer to the fol­low­ing table:

Gold Price-Change Overview (1933 – 2013)

Gold Price-Change Overview (1933 – 2013)

Now it’s a bit clear­er to see what is going on. In 1933 one US Dol­lar would buy you 1/20th on an ounce of pure gold.

But if you try that today, you are only going to get 1/1400 on ounce of Gold.

Struth, I have been robbed! And you have been unless you took the time to buy a lit­tle Gold and/or Sil­ver.

Back in 1933 the US Dol­lar was real­ly pret­ty valu­able (com­pared to today at least!).

So just how do you think this grand theft took place? Have a pon­der and I will cov­er more next time. Till then, “Keep Stackin’ ” …

Interesting Times …

The Chi­nese have an ancient curse which states:

May You Live in Inter­est­ing Times”

Well guess what? That’s exact­ly what you are doing right now, but maybe
you just haven’t noticed it. Or maybe you just accept it now as nor­mal.

Let me explain. We are liv­ing in the most unusu­al (read inter­est­ing) set
of finan­cial cir­cum­stances that this world have ever seen.

Maybe you have been so exposed to it and so famil­iar with it that you now
accept it as nor­mal. We no longer have a sound finan­cial sys­tem. It has
been replaced with the biggest Ponzi Scheme of all time. What is
con­sid­ered nor­mal or accept­able has shift­ed, slow­ly but sure­ly with the
pas­sage of time.

Cen­tral Bankers are to be blamed for all of these woes (ok TBTF banks
too). But con­tin­u­al­ly manip­u­lat­ing the sup­ply of mon­ey in their respec­tive
sys­tems, they have dilut­ed all our pre­cious mon­ey. so much so, that we are
near­ing the point of col­lapse, where it is just not cred­i­ble any­more.

Take some pre­cau­tions and make sure that you have at least 5 per­cent of
your net worth in some form of mate­r­i­al asset: Gold, Sil­ver, farm­land,
land, or some­thing. Of all Gold is prob­a­bly the eas­i­est to han­dle. That’s
why we rec­om­mend gold. It’s REAL MONEY!

So to recap. Don’t loose the faith and keep stackin’ …

Video — The Creature from Jekyll Island (G. Edward Griffin)

This is a must watch video. If you real­ly want to know how we got here, in the finan­cial mess that we are in today, then you need to watch this video and under­stand exact­ly how we got here.

The Fed­er­al Reserve Sys­tem is the great­est scam of all his­to­ry — Because it is NOT:

  • Fed­er­al
  • a Reserve (there are no Finan­cial Reserves)
  • a Sys­tem (it is New York based — with the illu­sion of Nation­al pres­ence)

Mr Grif­fin sites sev­en rea­sons why the Fed­er­al Reserve Sys­tem shoul be abol­ished:

  • It is inca­pable of acheiv­ing it’s stat­ed objec­tives
  • It is a Car­tel — Oper­at­ing against the pub­lic inter­est
  • It is the Supreme instru­ment of Usery
  • It gen­er­ates our most unfair tax
  • It encour­ages war
  • It desta­bilis­es the econ­o­my
  • It is an instru­ment of Total­i­te­ri­an­ism

It’s long weigh­ing in at 105 min­utes — but Mr Grif­fin is a mas­ter pub­lic speak­er, a dili­gent researcher, and above all it is high­ly enter­tain­ing piece that every­one should hear.

And know this — You can watch/listen to this video much quick­er than it took Mr Grif­fin the years of painstak­ing research, or ever to read his weighty tome as the same (which is a MUST read, btw ;-)).

Split it into two parts if you must, or more, but make sure you under­stand all that is in this great, great lec­ture.

A clos­ing thougt from Mr Grif­fin:

Fed­er­al Reserve Sys­tem does not need to be audit­ed…  It needs to be abol­ished!

 

I hear you Mr Grif­fin!

Monetizing the Debt

In many coun­tries the gov­ern­ment has assigned exclu­sive pow­er to issue or print its nation­al cur­ren­cy to a cen­tral bank. For exam­ple, in the USA, The Fed­er­al Reserve Bank does this.

The gov­ern­ment trea­sury must pay off gov­ern­ment debt either with mon­ey it already holds or by financ­ing it by issu­ing new bonds which are sold to either the pub­lic direct­ly or the cen­tral bank, in order to raise the funds required to sat­is­fy the debt. In this lat­ter case where bonds are placed with the cen­tral bank, the cen­tral bank will cre­ate the need­ed mon­ey by con­duct­ing an open mar­ket pur­chase, i.e. by increas­ing the mon­e­tary base through the mon­ey cre­ation process. This process of financ­ing gov­ern­ment spend­ing is called mon­e­tiz­ing the debt.

Mon­e­tiz­ing debt is thus a two-step process where the gov­ern­ment issues debt to finance its spend­ing and the cen­tral bank pur­chas­es the debt, leav­ing the sys­tem with an increased sup­ply of base mon­ey.

UBS to Pay Over $450 Million to Settle Libor Probe

UBS are get­ting ham­mered (as they should be):

ZURICHUBS AG (UBS) is close to a set­tle­ment with U.S. and U.K. author­i­ties and is expect­ed pay more than $450 mil­lion over claims that some of its employ­ees report­ed false Libor rates to boost the bank’s prof­it, the New York Times report­ed Sun­day, cit­ing anony­mous offi­cials briefed on the mat­ter.

If the Zurich-based bank agrees to the deals with var­i­ous author­i­ties, the col­lec­tive penal­ties would yield the largest total fine to date relat­ed to the rate-rig­ging inquiry and would increase the like­li­hood that oth­er finan­cial insti­tu­tions would face stiff penal­ties, it report­ed.

UBS was­n’t imme­di­ate­ly avail­able to com­ment on the report.

Author­i­ties dealt their first blow in the rate-rig­ging case in June, when U.K. bank Bar­clays Plc (BARC.LN) agreed to a $450 mil­lion set­tle­ment.

U.S. offi­cials are hop­ing to com­plete a deal with UBS by the mid­dle of the month, accord­ing to offi­cials briefed on the mat­ter, the paper report­ed.”
