Joseph comments on the following article suggesting Germany is considering repatriating its gold reserves:
Germany to Review Bundesbank Gold Reserves in Frankfurt, Paris, London and New York Fed
Hi Dr. Farrell,
many thanks for your insights- always greatly appreciated-
but my gut feeling tells me there’s something more behind this other than a retrieval of un-edible precious metals-
many warmest regards,
Larry in Germany
P.S.: as for your on-camera sneeze: I wish you Gesundheit! (ooh, baby, I hear ya- the alder/hazelnuts are already pollinating here in SW Germany- I’m sneezing my head off)
Please allow me to add that since the reunification of 1990 the Bundesbank has allegedly brought back in secret an unknown amount of that said gold from the NY vaults *and* got hold of the gold reserves of the former GDR, a fact almost always completely ignored. As usual, the Bundesbank does not comment on questions regarding the Bundesgoldreserven. What could be a hint that they brought back even larger amounts of the gold starting at least in 2006 is the fact that there was some kind of an international agreement made after some discussion in 2010 that the Bundesbank would not “sell” more than 400 tons of gold per annum (i would have to check back and look for that particular agreement, and with whom it was made, who was involved, that is, i believe it was spoken about in the “Handelsblatt” in 2011), where here “selling” *could* be a polite description of what really was going on. On top of that (and what made me come to the this further comment in the first place) is that there are serious hints that there is far more gold in the official Bundesbank vaults in Frankfurt and Mainz meanwhile than most ‘experts’ suggest. Again, the Bundesbank does not very much if at all comment on their gold reserves, let alone tell the public any serious numbers. What is known, by adding all information there is, is that in December 2011 the Bundesgoldreserve consisted of around 3.400 tons, that would be worth around 142billion €uros and is about 74% of the currency reserves of Germany, making the country the second largest holder of gold on the planet. The third largest holder of gold ist the IMF, of which Germany controls around 6% of the IMF capital in gold.
Given the disturbing ease with which Frau Merkel is dealing with *a big lot* of rather very hot iron these days and the way hundreds of billions of german taxpayers money is thrown into an abyss of no return without any sign of noticeable consequence in the daily life here i would not wonder if the german gold reserves would be far bigger than estimated and if that could be one of the easing factors in the way Berlin acts in it’s obvious financial war against the City of London and the Wall Street.
One does not do patriotism here. It is not politically correct anymore since 1945. No one in his right mind keeps a german flag at home let alone sings (or even knows the words of) the national anthem apart from people attending sport events, especially soccer, which is not a majority. The few ridiculous attempts by the gouvernment in the last years to reinvent a certain kind of “national feeling, soft kind” by, let’s say remembering soldiers killed in Afghanistan in state ceremonies or reintroducing some mockery of the iron cross in form of a special medal for the Bundeswehr have been nearly a parody, in idea, detail and design. All *that* ‘we would like to but we have forgotten how to do it properly due to that awful unconditional surrender and the last 67 years of being an allied protectorate, stripped of all what we once used to be’ is a great disguise inmidst countless other disguises … so only those who are interested in the detail watch the events unfolding these days from a national point of view with a certain historical background. I from my perspective would suggest that it *could be* that Berlin is very elegantly using the City and Wall Street to demolish themselves, thus sparing the cost of bullets and tanks, so to speak, and one of the countless levers by which this is done these days is the debt of the Hellenic Republic, presented to Berlin on a golden tray with a purple cushion by Goldman Sachs et al themselves. There is a funny puppet master somewhere above the financial world theatre, and to me it often seems as if the €uro ciris would be his invisibility cloak these days. The aim of the show is quite clear for everyone to see.
Always remember that the romans never really managed to conquer the germanic tribes east of the river Rhine, that they were terribly defeated several times by the tribes and finally gave up colonizing the vast lands of the east, and that it was the germanic tribe of the franks, who in the end became the heirs of the roman emperors. The western part of the franks’ empire became later on France, which means land of the free men or country of the keen/bold, the eastern part became Germany, which means country of the spear men or country of the brothers.
Hint 1. The Franks started their migration to the west and subsequent rise to power in the dark ages at nearly exactly the same time the saxons started their migration to british isles. It can be said that the rise of power of the franks is a direct consequence of tribal wars evolving between those two groups during the saxon migration.
Hint 2. Ferengi (> Star Trek), is the medieval arab word for the franks.
many thanks for your great postings/insights/info- greatly appreciated-

it SHOULD be clear for everyone to see but the masses just simply don’t want to look farther than their own front door- it’s just to scary-
and a show it is- after all, “life is a stage”- author known
warmest regards to all-
Don’t listen w/o blood pressure pills near.
A little research regarding the Gold Reserves of the former Reich versus the Gold Reserves piled up after WWII by means of the german Wirtschaftswunder should do to put certain speculations on that eternal Nazi Gold myth at ease. There are people and organisations in Germany asking the Bundesbank for years now how much Gold actually is there in those New York FED’s vaults and secondly why that said Gold is not stored in Germany but abroad. The Bundesbank traditionally does not answer these questions.
Regarding Nazi gold reserves: There are none in existence officially. German war-debt settlement agreements after WWII and the subsequent chaos regarding the multitued of assets in question concluded that there was nothing left (again: officially) and there is a clear distinction between the Reichsbank former reserves and the Bundesbank reserves, which are the ones in question today, piled up on the vast trade surplus of the 1950′s and early 60′s in the time of the “Wirtschaftswunder” of the former FRG.
It is very convenient to ignore that all other european countries have also stored the major amount of their gold reserves in New York to make it look as if only the german gold would be aksed to be given back by the United States. Just two days ago an initiative in Switzerland loudly demanded it’s gold reserves to be brought back home from New York. Denmark did so in the last four years, as did Norway, Sweden, Liechtenstein, Austria and Italy – these i know about, it may be more countries did so.
I would doubt that anyone in his right mind would believe the United States still have all those reserves. As the US-$ is backed by nukes, aircraft carriers, oil supply supremacy and fraud, fraud and fraud i wonder what use at all gold reserves could have in the current world financial situation *except* if the gouvernments asking their gold back would know that the might of the United States will come to an end very soon and do feel the need to prepare for the complete collapse of the US-$ dominated world financial system.
All in all a quite interesting topic, to say the least.
Great post JHM! Thanks!
The questions are:
How much of Amerika’s gold is actually Amerika’s gold?
How much German Gold is in the Fed?
How much ‘Nazi International’ Gold is in the Fed?
Who will hold the ‘gun’ to Amerika’s head if it does commandeer foreign Gold?
What is the ‘gun’?
Who benefits from a diminished ‘Amerikan’ Gold reserve?
How does the ‘breakaway civilisation’ play into this?
How much of the Fed gold might be tungsten??
as a side note* what implications would the probable +300 years (years 600-900 known as the false dark ages) on the 2012 stuff;
and as for germany wanting there gold.. fat chance
Having watched this vidblog, to answer your question to why Germany is wanting its gold back from the federal reserve at this point, I am of the opinion that it will be a bargaining chip (call it blackmail) when the Fed refuses to allow Germany to repatriate their gold, thereby implying that they actually don’t have it anymore. Germany probably knows this, and probably figured that they could kiss that gold goodbye as soon as they gave it to the Fed back in the old days in the aftermath of WWII. Perhaps this was a price to pay to avoid the Morganthal solution.
Germany’s demand for its gold signify two things to me. One, more impending financial collapse due to bank insolvency. Two, Germany senses weakness in the US and is looking to exploit this some way, short of actually getting its gold back.
I didn’t know that Hugo Chavez did the same thing. Perhaps, the Fed had to pay up because we still need his oil.
Hmmm, it may not be a coincidence that Germany and Venezuela are asking to repatriate their US gold reserves. Nazi international I would bet has a very strong behind the scenes presence is South America politically. A friend of mine in Peru told me last summer that there is an anti-American political current growing in South America. Political candidates in several previously neutral SA countries are openly allying themselves with Chavez, as this gets increased popular support.
We are seeing a uniting of South America politically and economically. Germany could be behind the scenes here.
This move about the gold reserves may signal another global conflict brewing. In a war situation, one doesn’t want to have any gold reserves in the enemy’s banks.
There has been recent buzz on the internet about a UFO war taking place in our skies, supposedly between the US and “Antarctica.” I think we could perhaps substitute Third Power South America for “Antarctica.”
I don’t know quite what you are waiting for, Joseph,
but your paradigms seem to be set exactly like so many others.
Nothing concerning space happens as suddenly as you seem to think,
not even Solar System local.
Aside from that, it is only March, although even NASA
seems to be concerned with every little blip and blink,
or hiccup from Sun.
What really bothers me, though, is that it is not just the moneyed
Elite that are concerned with ….[power, yes]……money.
It is really too bad that EVERYONE is concerned about money
[and the love of it].
THEY have made it necessary and yet there are a few NOT
falling into that trap, but only a few !
All of the above is not a good thing.
It is, in fact, an uhoh !
I agree Hal838. Wasn’t it Farrell himself who stated something like this, ‘ “that the foundation for Money should be the Productive Capacity of the Country and not some Gold Standard or Fart Currency. (intentional mis-spelling of Fiat Currency = all gas?)
Oh yes, it was in Babylon’s Gangsters!
I am pleased to hear from someone and I think you are right.
Thank you Paul.
I’ll see if I can find that and go over the chapter.
I must tell you that I am very disappointed in “humankind”
and would no longer give my
“life in any way, shape or form for the betterment of humankind” !!
Yes, I signed such a form in the way back machine.
I’m sure that proves I really AM an idiot after all !!!!!
Of course, if [when] the lights go out,
that may seem very sudden.
We are at “strong storm” level 7, over 600 solar wind
and haven’t even been hit [yet]
Bloggers can get more info from / for today at
There is a huge uptic in activity that will, in all likelyhood,
start a change that may be disappointing to some who are
expecting an “apocalypse,” “end of the world,”
“second coming,” total human slavery,” “armageddon,”
or some kind of “ascension” to “another plane of existence.”
I must say though, that most here seem to be enjoying
some kind of status quo or, if we all vote for Ron Paul,
He is the One that will change the world. I don’t see much
of a difference between this and my previous paragraph.
But then, what in the world would you all blog about?
Righto so far, except for the “total human slavery.” Got that – just remember, the ‘bottom’ is real Deep! Keep blogging n noggin’ sloggin’ – I read all your ‘witticisms’ (place’d be boring without them)… Dhz’n-Dzh’n *creak-k* ‘_-_’
I am at your service and pleased to give you a chuckle.
get your lead umbrella.
It’s stormin’ Norman up there.
