Will Rothschilds Move Gold from the US to the EU?

By now it will be common knowledge that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke has committed America to Quantitative Easing (QE) for Europe.

It matters little whether the Fed distributes the funds individually to specific countries, or whether it credits the International Monetary Fund (IMF) or the European Central Bank (ECB) for them to distribute.

At the very least, the objective is a delay in the financial collapse of the EU, which would, in turn, delay a similar crash in the US.

It is hard to imagine, but it is also possible that Mr. Bernanke actually believes that the creation of more fiat currency may be an actual solution to the EU’s fiscal problems.

For those who believe, as I do, that the situation is beyond redemption and that the EU QE will only exacerbate the problem, the damage that it will do to American and European taxpayers is unconscionable. This latest grandstand play will only serve to make the ultimate crash deeper and more prolonged. Long after those who have concocted the scheme have retired to their villas, the average citizen will still be paying for their intervention.

But there is an interesting side issue that, as yet, does not seem to be under discussion. If the US is to loan billions, or even trillions, to the EU, it would not be unreasonable for them to request that the loan be securitised. After all, this is the normal manner in which banking is done.

On the surface of it, this might seem unlikely, as the Fed would appear a bit chintzy if it were to insist upon holding a note for, say, the Acropolis or the Tower of Pisa. However, a far more reasonable and far more logical possibility exists. At present, an estimated 6,000 tonnes of gold is held in the cellars of the Federal Reserve Building in New York that belongs to EU countries. It would not seem at all unreasonable for the US to wish to collateralise the debt to the EU, using the EU gold in New York.

The kicker here is that, however much fiat currency they credit the EU with, they will never see that money again. It is not possible that it can be repaid, since the EU cannot even pay its existing debt.

So, what would be the wrinkles in such a move?

First, it could be suggested that the EU would not wish to sign over the gold. After all, the QE will not be repaid, which virtually guarantees that they would lose their gold to the US government. Second, the European people are beginning to figure out that it may not have been such a good idea to let the Americans store EU gold, and many are now asking their governments to have it shipped to European banks. So, what would be the reply from the Fed if, say, the Bundesbank were to order that the German-owned gold be delivered to Frankfurt?

I am inclined to believe that it would not be one that the German people would wish to hear.

Another argument against the premise of securitisation for the EU QE would be that the US continues to maintain that gold is a barbarous relic that should not be thought of as currency. If they were to demand gold as security, would they be opening up a can of worms? My guess is that they would not. That can is in the process of opening of its own accord, as major American institutions are now buying gold. Therefore, the veil is falling from that particular ruse in any case. As it does, the US could only appear prudent to its populace by requesting securitisation.

But the larger issue is the future. The Euro is headed for a fall. The US dollar, in turn, would be likely to fall. A currency scramble would then ensue, with possibly the yuan, the ruble, the rupee and other currencies vying for greater use as world currencies. In addition, the IMF may well create its own paper currency and run it up the flagpole.

The US would be likely to make a stab at a new dollar of some sort. However, once a currency has crashed, the currency that created it generally has a difficult time re-establishing its previous position of importance. If the US were to stay in the game as the world’s provider of a default currency, it would need something more than it can presently offer.

Many economists project that, following the crashes of the Euro and the dollar, a return to gold-backed currencies would appear as a world trend. This is only natural, as the fiat currency concept would have been shown to be the farce that it is.

This being the case, at gold’s current spot price there is not enough of it in circulation to cover the amount of currency units in existence in the world. It is entirely possible that all currencies could receive a shake-up, and an entire worldwide system of gold-backed currencies may develop. If this were to occur, the countries that held the largest amounts of gold at that time would be out in front economically. Which countries had made the most severe economic mistakes in the immediate past, would become less important than who was holding the precious metal after the fall had occurred. Certainly, the Asian countries see the writing on the wall. It is no secret that they are acquiring gold in a very determined way.

Certainly, they hope to have a bigger share of the pie after the crashes take place in the First World.

As to whether the US chooses to attach the EU gold to their QE of Europe, only time will tell, but it would certainly seem to be the wise move.

    What year are you in? The US carries no gold…Fort Knox was emptied years ago. That’s why your dollar is not backed by gold!

    Dear Liz, you have certainly waken up, but forgot to open your eyes before reading the article ;-) Where did you see “Fort Knox”? The author says, “6,000 tonnes of gold is held in the cellars of the Federal Reserve Building in New York“. As for Fort Knox, it was empty not just “years ago” but half a century ago! ;-) One of the purposes of the James Bond movie Goldfinger (1964) was to make the public believe it’s really full of gold, lol!

    The collapse is controlled.
    I think we are moving towards ration books and carbon credits not gold trading standards. The glamor is gone the time has come to eat cake, sorry dirt.
    Please read 1984

    I would suggest the Fed has no gold in their vaults. If anything, they have tons of tungsten. BTW, a lot of gold was moved during/after 911

  5. Mayer Rothschild says:

    Yes. The USA has NO gold. The elite will make things as bad as they can to have people begging for a new currency. The Rothschilds et all will comply-Petrodollar will be rolled out after markets and US dollar collapse. Partially backed by gold and silver. Gold + $3000 and Silver $100.
    March 8th US attacks Iran. march 23rd Greek Defaults. April US dollar goes down.

  6. admin says:

    Absolutely right, ‘Mayer’! ;-) The USA has no gold, neither does Europe. Both have only debts to the banksters. What the article is really about is that the Rothschilds are moving their assets from one pocket to another. But, if true, this means they prepare such a turmoil in the States that even the Fed’s cellar won’t be a sure place.

    If you read down through the comments, you can see there are people who say there is no gold in the USA anymore. I have a friend who claims this is true. My logic in this question goes like this: if it’s not in the USA anymore then it surely wasn’t shipped to Canada for safe keeping, or Mexico (or Peru)…where actually much of the gold was taken out of in the 16th century, and sent to Europe, and then re-gathered here in banks on the gold standard after WWII. Therefore, if it’s not here or there…or there…then it must be off planet! If you’ve read your Zacharia Sitchin, it was the Niburians who came here to gather gold for its actual one use, besides medical and industrial small uses, electronic technology and especially outer space travel requirements of thin films and reflective surfaces, and superconducting. If no bullion is left on earth today, then ipso facto the aliens must have seen the piles and just as they had done over their stay here for the last 532,000 years, they took it to their base of operations ready for transport back to their industrial centers. So I posit that it is still close by waiting in storage for the far base to come close enough to transport it all in a convoy of space freighters manned by the ‘grays’. Taking from Sitchen again, we can turn to the Mars conundrums. The moon Phobos appears to be not only hollow, but of a recent acquisition of Mars, with strange tracks all over it and a huge opening to the interior. Satellites sent there by the Russians were “taken out” as their cameras caught the flight of something leaving the surface of Phobos and crashing into the probe, destroying it. Here we have it. The aliens have taken earth’s gold, which was dutifully gathered, just like in the far olde days of yore, into specific places, making it that much easier than mining it as they had for thousands of years. So up goes the gold bullion into the belly of great invisible ships in the sky that we humans just can’t manage to figure out (LOL). Just as the first Indians who saw the Spanish ships glide into their harbors, they are so foreign to us that even when we look right at them we can’t ‘see’ them. Off to Phobos goes the strange ships flashing like hallucinations between the planets and fly straight inside the moon and discharge the bullion already crated up for transport by the diligent humans. All that treasure that Rom Paul and the gold standard folks want to rely on as “real wealth” is no longer here and that’s why we all have to work our asses off… because there’s no wealth left on planet earth!… LOLoutloud…right or what?

    I don’t know “right or what”, but it was a pleasure to read :-) BTW, our Moon is hollow too:
