GATA: Sensational “Brown’s Bottom”

Stacy Summary:  GATA took a look at our special summer documentary and had this to say . . .

But Keiser’s documentary may be sensational for getting an acknowledgement from the German central bank, the Bundesbank, that Germany’s gold reserves are actually in the custody of the United States. This is a detail the Bundesbank long has denied to others who have inquired and is potentially a matter of great controversy in Germany. It raises the question of whether the German gold reserves are actually intact at all or whether they have been used by the U.S. government as part of its long-time gold price suppression scheme or have been comingled and diminished with the gold reserves of other countries held in the United States.

    Ouch!
    Gold getting beaten up!

  2. After reading over the German news for a bit (went to grad school there) to see if someone picked up on Max’s video, it seems like their main stream media doesn’t really discuss WHERE the gold actually is. In the line from Focus they say:

    The German bank holds around 3400 tons of gold in their reserves.

    Die Bundesbank hält rund 3.400 Tonnen Gold in ihren Währungsreserven.

    They fail to mention where that gold actually is!

    I’ve only been able to find a few examples of Germans being aware that their gold is in New York and they’re all blogs and forums (usually from a few years ago).

    Don’t worry though…. I’m spreading the word as quickly as I can!

    @sharon , i do not know much about the likes of eustace mullins but from the little i have read it is enough . it seems to me that in england and america there are many people, usually white alienated males asocial type males that have a fascination for nazism and that kind of thing perhaps people like that are just afraid of taking their place in the real world and secretly wish to be german or something like that take refuge in this kind of rubbish perhaps also they secretly wish for a right wing revival dictatorship of somekind where they can get to wear snappy uniforms. i do not know about the big ideas that eustace mullins talks about and claims he makes about life in the camps being such fun etc but i do know a Doctor [Vera ] who writes in a very Beautiful sueterlin Script ,Vera is 80 years and a very dear person who has spent her entire life helping others who lost her entire family [mother father 2 brothers ] in the war in a camp in serbia during the war . originally from Austria her family lost their house, then her family . Vera escaped from the camp as a child and lived with partisans. Vera is a very Beautiful , gentle person and has suffered greatly and the writings of the likes of Eustacre Mullins makes a mockery of the suffering of people like her . i have spent several years trying to get some kind of settlement for Vera via the General Settlement Fund Austria from Austrian Parliament , an almost impossible task due to limitations etc the short time that compensation was made available meant that most people were not aware that compensation was available until due date had expired but it allowed the Austrian government to say the compensation had been offered, appalling. the amount had she been successful was truly pitiful.i have photographs names dates etc of Veras family to be able to verify what happened . someone like eustace mullins is a disgrace to humanity . i hope that no one ever has to go through what Vera and her family went through. as someone who is of german background [mother] i can tell you that after having lost 2 world wars no one in germany has a desire to lose a 3rd..

    @aNewEraBegins .. ” German Gold ”

    I’m just wondering about this !

    My London Bank-trader friend from ca. Yr. 2000 told me that the German Bonds must be cleared through London.
    This was done in order to keep a “clear view” of what the Germans were doing with their money ( post WW2 ) ; just in case !!
    So maybe the same type of “agreement” ( probably imposed by NATO ) was arranged for German Gold ?
    i.e. they must store it outside the country where everyone can see it and keep track !

    Seems probable IMO.

    A friend of mine ( ex-CEO of U. Carbide ) was a freefall expert as a hobby ( ex-SAS ). He actually got NATO to change the law that stated : “only NATO troops are allowed to parachute over Germany ” so he could start a freefall club.
    So there are still a lot of these old post-WW2 laws hanging around.
    .. and maybe “German Gold storage” is still there – i.e. if it existed at all.
    JMHO FWIW

    I’ve just been reading a post on another site in which they are discussing whether or not America is about to have a revolution. Apparantly it only takes 3% of the population to get the ball rolling:-

    Fidel Castro took a whole country by starting his revolution with 82 men…which grew as he gathered the support of the population…

    How many would be required in the US today?
    It was said that less than 5% of the population was active in the American Revolution.

    China has the largest Army of 1.5 million, then India with 1.2 million and then you have America at least 85 million gun owners, if only 10 percent show up you are looking at an 8.5 million man militia. Where is the US govenment going to get enough troops to handle that.
    Cliff High said in one of his interviews that mathematically it would take 65 million troops to garrison USA and that statistically they would hold it for a year or less.
    Japanese leader Tojo once said that the reason Japan never invaded the mainland of the United States was because “there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.”

    Conversely, the last thing Federal snoops would have, if they had any choice in the matter, is a thousand different small phantom cells opposing them. It is easy to see why. Such a situation is an intelligence nightmare for a government intent upon knowing everything they possibly can about those who oppose them.

    “If every person has the right to defend–even by force–his person, his liberty, and his property, then it follows that a group of men have the right to organize and support a common force to protect these rights constantly.” —The Law. Frederick Bastiat Paris, 1850.

    That’s a great question. Actually the European Coal and Steel Community (now known as the EU) started out as a way to monitor whether countries were arming up for war (gotta have coal and steel to fight). So you are thinking along the right lines. Besides the EU…there were a lot of ‘watch the Germans’ laws passed after WWII. The Germans were happy to comply with the wishes of the Americans because of the Marshal Plan.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Coal_and_Steel_Community

    As far as the Gold laws….. I’ve never heard of that, but I think we all know that a lot of international gold agreements are still in the realm of gentleman’s clubs so it’s definitely possible. The real problem in finding it is that Germans missed out on the whole ‘Internet’ thing and still aren’t very electronic. People are still making ‘great discoveries’ after spending a month in the library! I’m going to Germany on business in about a month or two and a friend of mind has a job at the Bundesbank, so if my internet research doesn’t yield anything I may have to have a few drinks and see if that loosens her tongue.

    The Germans are very secretive about their gold…. lessons learned I suppose.

    BTW: Check out this viral video of Stacy I made. It got 2000 hits yesterday….. it’s just good inspirational stuff!

    i don’t think this vid gets at the core issue.

    ‘golf shirts’ as i call them, the successors to black shirts and brown shirts are riling up the people and tapping into their anger. This is classic propaganda 101 stuff that we saw in the 1930’s in Germany – based on the persuasion techniques worked out by Freud.

    I recommend to all – please watch or re-watch “The Century of Self” the excellent UK documentary on the role psycho analysis has played in the creation of propaganda, public relations, marketing and focus groups.

    These town hall meetings are focus groups held by progagandists looking to set themselves up as demoagogues of America’s new extremism that will completely bypass punishing the bankers but instead, attempt to scapegoat the poor.

    These public riots are a way to direct people’s anger away from the culprits who engineered the financial collapse for their benefit.

    If people think that their ‘anger’ is being ‘heard’ their sub-conscious mind feels satisfied enough to continue ignoring the facts seen and understood by the conscious mind.

    America paid trillions in reparations to the banks and got NOTHING in return. The disgrace, humiliation, and shame of this open theft and humiliation must find an outlet as it is doing at these public meetings. Unfortunately, this is just more stage craft by the banks/insurance companies who are adding additional insult and additional injury to the masses in the US who are slowly, and way too late… waking up.

    Thanks for that. I think my short videos are a great way to get the message out. Americans must have a sprinkle of Hollywood everywhere or their brains seem to shut down.

    I’ve gotten 6000 hits in a week on these vids! I expected to get MAYBE get a thousand. I’m thinking that is pretty good, but without a comparison I don’t know.

    I’m trying to do video’s from Max’s themes, so this week I’m going to dredge up some good ol’ prison gulag planet stuff. OH YEA!!!

    Encouragement helps…. I’m going to do 5 a week (which is no easy task). Go Max and Stacy!

    Gold didn’t complete it’s inverse head and shoulders and so now it’s getting hurt. However, the dollar was up over 2% (with aftermarket) on Friday and gold really didn’t get slammed comparatively. This is so because a lot of countries announced that they wouldn’t be selling much gold in the near future.

    Hypothetically: I’m not in the business of being liable for advice (stupid laws). The truth is that the dollar is poised to make a dead cat bounce after the drubbing it’s received the past few months. Gold’s not really going to go up significantly until the dollar resumes it’s downward spiral.

    Gold will finally EXPLODE once you see a few days when the stock market AND the dollar are down on the same day. That should be the buy signal for everyone.

    I’m really watching China’s stock market. Don’t forget that MILLIONS of people starved to death under Mao and you don’t loose that mentality very quickly. For the first time China has flooded the nation massive amount of liquidity and the market is up ca. 100% since March. WOW. Can you say bubble? The mentality of people who were starved out a few decades ago that now have a lot of stuff is generally a bit…… nervous.

    I agree with what you say but don’t you think that many of these people are just plain angry and as they’ve been taught that their congressman is supposed to be representing them in gov. they naturally assume that they must direct their anger at him/her in order to get change. It seems that most people turning up to these townhall meetings are not an organised group as such but rather angry citizens who feel that they need to tell someone with influence how they feel. In other words, for the majority it is a natural reaction. Now clearly this is being manipulated in order to show these people up, the usual divide and conquer strategy. How else can normal, everyday people show their frustration? I accept that this will be twisted to look like something it isn’t and therein lies the danger, as you say. The media has already jumped on that bandwagon which is why I thought that call from Leah was interesting because at least it shows that for many it is about wanting the change they were promised. Your point of course is correct because these people are aiming their anger in the wrong direction; they fail to see what is the real cause of their problems. If they listened to you they would know. Education, education, education as that evil pillock who used to run this country used to say.

    Excellent quotes and points! Don’t you think the elite WANT chaos and not an orderly opposition? Look to this protocol for hints as to tactics used by both sides in the health care battle:

    @New Era Begins.
    Great viral video, thanks.
    Also great explanation re gold.
    I foolishly wrote that when gold fell sharply (only to settle after bedtime for me). Will I never learn. Its just gravity of some form or another.
    Its almost like when one is expecting something one looks for it too much.
    Thanks for the clarification. I promise I won’t sue 😉

    as a fan and adam curtis and one of the people who posted liks to his stuff quite a while back with seemingly very little response…..just gotta say unless you have read all 23 vols of freuds work I wouldn’t put complete faith in one mans opinion or interpretation…please, please watch ‘century of the self’ if you haven’t seen it but I would suggest as with most stuff keep an open mind.

  19. It´s true, not many Germans are aware that thier gold might be in the USA.
    It would be a lot of help, if Max Keiser could tell whom at the Bundesbank told him, that all the German gold is in New York ( i suppose at the NY Fed ).

    Who at the Bundesbank confirmed this? Please name!
