Just when you thought that all that fuss and muss about Germany repatriating its gold was over and done with when the Bundesbank, Germany's central bank, announced that it was satisfied that everything was shipshape at the N.Y. Fed, think again. Mr. V.T., a regular reader and contributor of articles here, found this post, from yesterday, at Investment Watch:

GERMAN GOLD RESERVES – Germany Repatriates Its Gold Reserves from U.S.

There are a number of new things here which, if true, are extremely intriguing for the simple reason that what was "high octane speculations" from last year and the year before, now seem to be entering the realm of speculation in at least major investment advisory site:

"Despite previously characterizing the idea that it was planning on moving gold out of the New York Fed as an “irrational fear,” the German Bundesbank is set to announce a huge repatriation of its bullion this week, with France also being emptied of German gold in a sign that trust between central banks has hit rock bottom.

“'In what could be a watershed moment for the price, provenance, and future of physical gold, not to mention the “stability” of the entire monetary regime based on rock solid, undisputed “faith and credit” in paper money, German Handelsblatt reports in an exclusive that the long suffering German gold, all official 3,396 tons of it, is about to be moved. Specifically, it is about to be partially moved out of the New York Fed, where the majority, or 45% of it is currently stored, as well as the entirety of the 11% of German gold held with the Banque de France, and repatriated back home to Buba in Frankfurt,' reports Zero Hedge. Apparently, since a significant proportion of that gold is now being moved out of the New York Fed, are we to assume that this “trust” no longer exists?"

What is new here is the Handelsblatt is now maintaining that all of Germany's foreign gold reserves, "all official 3,396 tons of it," is to be moved from the NY Fed and from the Bank of France.

But there's more, and my bet is that the reader noticed it too, and that is the reasons being offered for the new decision:

"Financial analyst Jim Willie sensationally claims that Germany is preparing to ditch the unipolar system backed by NATO and the U.S. in favor of joining the BRICS nations, and that this is why the NSA was caught spying on Angela Merkel and other German leaders.

"(The) real reason behind the recent NSA surveillance scandal targeting Germany was centered around the United States’ fear that Europe’s financial powerhouse is looking to escape from an inevitable dollar collapse."

This move of Germany towards the BRICSA bloc, and a decoupling from NATO, has been in my high octane predictions list for at least two years. What is unique here is specific wording: a decoupling not merely from the unipolar dollar system, but from NATO, i.e., Investment Watch is maintaining that the gold move signals a potential collapse of the NATO system, for without Germany, there really is no NATO. After all, as Zbigniew Brzezinski put it in his The Grand Chessboard, the formation of NATO was as much about how to contain German power, as it was about hedging in the Soviet bloc. And for the German leadership, NATO was as much about... well... that's another story best left for another venue.
What is interesting here is that the timing of the article makes sense, for as other stories this last week indicate, not only Germany, but America's "special relationship ally," Great Britain, and even Israel, have announced their intention to join China's new Asian development bank. In Britain and Germany's case, these two nations are joining as founding members, that is to say, one may expect that they will have permanent seats, and thus influence, within the new bank, which many are already seeing as a rival to the US's system of the IMF and World Bank.
Time will tell, of course, whether Germany will be successful with this latest alleged repatriation attempt. But now, the lines are drawn and the intentions are clear, and the pressure on the New York Federal Reserve are now immense: repatriate, or be self-evidently no longer a trustworthy organization.
So why the move? Herewith the high octane speculation of the day: if there is, as I have argued, a hidden system of finance that has been in place since the Truman administration, a system used to fund a long-term mega-Manhattan Project for research into exotic technologies, then what these moves also portend are not merely moves against the overt system of Western finance, but a blow against the covert one. And that has other implications, for if those projects and that hidden financial system were designed to develop exotic UFO-related technologies - as I believe they were- and to put into place a "gatekeeping" counter-intelligence operation to suppress certain data about those things and related subjects, then the move is also slated to give those nations greater influence over those subjects, and any public discussion of them.
See you on the flip side.
