25% Of World's Gold Buried Underneath The NY Fed

Speaking of terrorist plots to blow up the NY Fed.

According to the government, 25% of the entire global supply of gold, approximately $355 billion, is buried six stories below ground, underneath the Federal Reserve Bank of New York building at 33 Liberty Street in downtown Manhattan.  The same Federal Reserve Bank that was targeted by an alleged Al-Qaeda linked terrorist with a fake 1,000-pound bomb.  Of course, until we audit the Fed, all claims of fortressed gold are just heresay.  You can book a tour to see the bars for yourself.  But in that case, seeing might be disbelieving.

"The closest thing to a real audit was last performed in 1953, but even that one had major problems. First, there were no independent outside parties involved, and second, only 5% of the gold was tested for purity."

For the nearly 60 years since then, the reserves have been held under tight control by a group of men closely connected to the Wall St. banks. Zero oversight by the American people or their elected representatives has been permitted.  Last year, as part of their coverage of Ron Paul’s inquiry into the gold reserves, CNBC was denied the opportunity to even film any of the gold in Fort Knox. They were told that it was a “closed facility.”  One staff member even said that he was not aware of any member of congress having toured the facility since 1974.

According to a treasury document, a full audit of the gold would take 30 minutes per bar for a total of 350,000 man hours, or 400 men working for 6 months. Total cost would be $15 million.  Sounds like a bargain.

That is stimulus spending we can agree with.

Is this $$$$value correct, less than 1 1/2 $trillion total? That doesn't sound right. And as far as those so called bars in the story go, how do we know whether or not they are real of fools gold?

I'm not sure on the total gold number, Norman. Someone will do a google check and report the number. And yes, we do need to AUDIT the U.S. supply of gold.

According to a treasury document, a full audit of the gold would take 30 minutes per bar for a total of 350,000 man hours, or 400 men working for 6 months. Total cost would be $15 million. Sounds like a bargain.

By the way, when was the last stimulus project that created 400 jobs with $15 million. The last project I saw created 100 jobs with a billion in spending.


That's $10 Million per freaking job!

It would be interesting to park a van nearby, with some deep penetrating ground radar gear.

Why would the American people today actually believe ANYTHING the government actually states? History has proven that you are a fool if you believe known liars !

Why can't people just leave the gold in the earth & pretend they own gold?
Dec 10, 2012 at 8:46 PM | Unregistered CommenterAugust
To August, probably because they're greedy. The common person can't dig it up/pan for it without investing much $$$$. Besides, what can you do with it besides look at it? You can't eat it, but you can sell it if you can find someone who will pay the price.

Ever questioned why many countries store their gold to a private company--Fed reserve? Germany wants it's gold back home--Fed Res. says--no way.
All we say was a Gold brick wall-I'll bet--not much behand it. Suckers abound!
