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):

“ZURICH–UBS 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.”

“You have to choose between trusting the natural stability of gold and the natural stability and honesty of the members of the government. And with due respect for these gentlemen, i advise you as long as the capitalist system lasts, to vote for gold.”
