GERMAN GOLD, ALLIED BOMBS, AND A BIT OF THE MOVIES
So many people found this story that I have to talk about it. In fact, if you've been following the whole increasingly odd story of the German gold repatriation, it just took probably the most bizarre turn yet, and this is a story that started out being odd and bizarre! Now, if you've been following this story as others and I have over the years, you'll have run across a number of these "odd oddities," things like former Reichsbank President Hjalmar Schacht being told that the New York Federal Reserve could not find Germany's gold, when Herr Schacht was visiting his central banking friend Benjamin Strong in New York in 1928. Herr Schacht, according to his memoirs Confessions of the Old Wizard, informs us that he blandly smiled at Mr. Strong and said simply that he knew the Fed was "good for it." Then Herr Schacht received a sentence so light at Nuremberg after World War Two that many have speculated he blackmailed the Allies somehow, and I cannot help but entertain the notion that his little encounter with "misplaced" German gold in the NY Fed in 1928 may have had something to do with that.
Fast forward to the late 20th century and early 21st century, and we get the gold-backed bearer bonds scandals, and the Bruce Willis-Samuel Jackson movie Die Hard with a Vengeance. The movie came along first, in which we encounter an ex-East German Army officer and a group of nouveau Euro-fascists pretending to be terrorists setting off bombs all over New York City, while their real objective is to loot the gold depository of the NY Federal Reserve of every last ingot of gold. The title of the movie, Die Hard with a Vengeance, indicates a relationship to the first movie in the Die Hard series, where Willis battles "Hans" the brother of the third movie's ex-East German Army officer, Simon Gruber. Hans, unlike his brother Simon, is trying to steal hundreds of millions of dollars of bearer bonds that are locked within the vault of a Japanese firm's headquarters in Los Angeles.
It has always struck me as very odd that these movies appeared somewhat in advance of the reality that they so peculiarly mimic, for of course, the bearer-bonds scandals broke when two Japanese men were apprehended by Italy's Garda di Finanze on the Swiss-Italian border, trying to enter Switzerland. Tucked into a false bottom of their briefcase were $134.5 billion dollars of allegedly "gold-backed" bearer bonds. The scandal wouldn't go away, and president Obama had to answer a question during a press conference that pointed out this was the exact amount in the Troubled Asset Relief Fund. Mr Obama assured everyone that the bonds were fakes and counterfeits. Nothing to see here. Move along. Then after this, the two Japanese men, were released by Italian authorities(!) after having allegedly some role in the counterfeiting scheme of the century, while Vatican-connected news outlets in East Asia were informing everyone that the "fakes" were so good they appeared to be "genuine." Well, of course the bonds were fake because they were in denominations of a billion dollars each, we were told, and the US Treasury has never issue bonds in those denominations. Well, one doesn't counterfeit seven dollar bills either, and no amount of academic footsie and polysyllabilified explanations has ever given an explanation of why people would want to run a scam - over and over as it turns out - counterfeiting things that don't exist and in such astronomical amounts of money that even at extreme discount they would be difficult to unload. (And I'm still waiting for that explanation.)
As all of these weird gold-backed bearer bonds stories were breaking, Germany suddenly decided it wanted to repatriate its gold reserves from Paris, London, and New York. Initially, we were told, this repatriation proceeded slowly, then the story sort of dropped out of view, and then, voila! it was announced just a few weeks ago that what had started out at a snail's pace had been "accelerated" and all of Germany's gold was safe and sound back in vaults in Frankfurt-am-Main, danke Gott! And just in the nick of time too, to have some reserves handy for all those immigrants and refugees Frau Merkel wants to continue flooding Germany with, and who will need welfare until she and Darth Soros can find them steady jobs raping German women and producing Sharia-compliant clothing for the whole German female population so that they can avoid being this insensitive to Islam in the future.
But alas! All that gold may suddenly (once again) have to be moved to safe havens elsewhere because, lo and behold, we have the sudden discovery of an unexploded 2,000 pound bomb, left over from World War Two, which could, if it detonates, flatten an entire city block:
Vault Containing $70 Billion In German Gold To Be Evacuated As Frankfurt Defuses Massive Bomb
Note, first, the size of the bomb(a British bomb), and the amount of people to be evacuated:
Approximately 60,000 residents of Germany’s financial capital, Frankfurt, will be ordered to evacuate their homes on Sunday as the city's emergency service staff will attempt to defuse a massive World War Two bomb, discovered recently at a local building site. The 1.4-tonne HC 4000 bomb dropped by the British air force during World War Two was uncovered on a building site on Wismarer Strasse in Frankfurt’s leafy Westend where many wealthy bankers live.
And here's the culpr...er... the bomb itself:
Now, fortunately, I don't have to indulge in any high octane speculation today, because Zero Hedge is suspecting the same thing that you probably are, and that I definitely am:
Where this otherwise trivial evacuation takes on a more sinister, "Die Harder" spin, is when looking at what other structures are impacted by the 1.5 km evacuation radius: these include Frankfurt’s Goethe University, police headquarters, two hospitals, transport systems... oh and the Bundesbank headquarters, which as a reminder ten days ago completed the accelerated repatriation of 674 tonnes of gold - some three years ahead of schedule - from New York and Paris to its vault deep underground.
According to Reuters, the Bundesbank vault which stores 1,710 tonnes of gold deep underground - approximately half the country’s reserves - is located less than 600 meters from the location of the bomb. Well, that particular vault which now holds $70 billion in gold (including $28 billion in freshly repatriated physical) and everything around it, is about to be evacuated. All that's missing are several dozen dump trucks to take advantage of the massive evacuation that will leave thousands of gold bars without security for 1.5 kilometers in any direction.
In fact, in case you didn't catch the reference to the Die Hard with a Vengeance movie, the article references it more directly:
Still, to prevent anyone from getting any ideas of following in Simon Gruber's footsteps, a spokesman for the German Bundesbank said, that "the usual security arrangements" would remain in place while experts worked to disarm the bomb.
Simon Gruber, of course, being the ex-East German army officer determined to steal the New York Fed's gold bullion, and avenge his bearer-bond-stealing brother Hans, who died at the end of the first movie. (Oh, did we mention that he fell out of a window of a high rise skyscraper?)
Now, assurances from the Bundesbank spokesman aside, I cannot help but "feel" here that something is odd and amiss. Granted, there's no evidence for this, there's nothing to suggest this is anything more than an "irrational" feeling, a bit of odd coincidence and synchronicity with some very odd Bruce Willis movies that seem to feature a 50% presence(when you factor all four movies) of very upset Germans planning some very sophisticated covert operations involving gold bullion and bearer bonds.
Which brings me to my high octane speculation of the day:
World War Two and unexploded bombs are, perhaps, a handy and convenient thing to have around if one wants to divert the attention of the residents of a very large city, forcibly evacuate them from the financial district, while perhaps swapping out all those recently recovered bars of...well, what we're told are gold... and replace them with something else, if they're real, then a few fake replacements, or vice versa, if they're fake, with a few real ones...
... you get the idea. And once this is done, then, well, commence a rehypothecation! In fact, if this was the scheme all along, then what, really, is under that canopy? A real bomb already defused quietly prior to the big evacuation exercise? And, while we're at it, yea a two thousand pound bomb will do a lot of damage, but an evacuation radius of 1.5 kilometers, that's a little over a mile, is much larger than the severe blast damage range of such a bomb. Why such a big evacuation area? I could understand such a large if this bomb were, say, one of the enormous British 10,000 pound blockbuster or 25,000 pound "grand Slam" bombs, the so called "earthquake" bombs.
And that, of course, makes me wonder... why hide that bomb under a canopy at all? After all, the general "look" of a World War Two bomb is known to just about anyone who's ever seen an old newsreel of Germans or the British bombing whomever. There's no big secret about a conventional World War Two bomb, British or otherwise. And if that bomb should detonate, that canopy isn't going to shield anyone from anything. So again, why hide the bomb? The large evacuation area, canopies... all this suggests to me that something is quite amiss with this story, and that whatever it is they're really doing, they don't want anyone to see. Heavy construction equipment rolls in; heavy construction equipment rolls out, perhaps taking a secret cargo - like Simon Gruber in Die Hard with a Vengeance - out.
See you on the flip side...

I watched ‘Die Hard’ for the first time last night.
It was released in 1998 before any of this ‘stuff’ was going on.
Cop says: “What about the dead guy that fell from the skyscraper and landed on my car?”
Reply: “Maybe it was just a depressed banker.”
The whole, “Is there actually any gold in the vaults?” question is certainly legit. Speaking in movie terms, the ultimate finale in one of these gold heist movies would be that George Clooney and crew finally make it into the vaults only to find they’re actually being used to stock surplus cheese.
Anyway, I don’t think the allied bomb is a cover story; any of these gold repositories can be emptied within a few weeks without anyone noticing simply by using normal service trucks, filled with whatever they actually do have — no one outside is paying that much attention.
As for the bomb “scare,” well that too is par for the course these days, with governments and the media colluding to hype any remote threat into doom porn of TEOTWAWKI proportions. They think it makes them look necessary and relevant, and caring (gag).
Within a decade, there will be mandatory evacuations of the Eastern Seaboard in the US every time there’s a nasty thunderstorm cell brewing anywhere in the northern hemisphere.
Since the whole economy is based upon fraud/crime;
it’s given that the gold is being taken.
The question is by whom,
and where is it going to reside?
My comment on MH370 with ‘useful’ urls is finally out of moderation:
First of all, there has been massive obfuscation about the percentage of German gold held by the Fed which was actually repatriated. A good article on this aspect is:
“The plan would mean repatriating a total of 674 tonnes of gold; 300 from the New York Fed’s gold vault, and another 374 from the Bank of France. … Going forward, Germany will still have 1,236 tonnes held at the NY Fed, and another 432 tonnes of gold at the Bank of England.”
As I understand it, Germany initially-wanted ALL of the German gold held at the Fed to be returned to the Vaterland. After a “not on your life” response from the banksters, Germany settled-on about a fifth (300/1536) being returned. This is the lauded “returned early” stuff. What is glossed-over is that the Fed still has the remaining four-fifths, and will probable KEEP that four-fifths. I would speculate that the those 1,236 tons suspiciously-resemble ‘thin air’…
And yes, the “bomb” would present an ideal opportunity to swap-out either the (real) gold bars or the (tungsten) gold bars. The carefully-fitted cover on the bomb is also suspicious; a simple canopy would suffice…
Earlier, I wrote a long comment on the bearer-bond shenanigans:
There’s gold in dem derr hills…..cough, cough……..eh vaults
More missing gold from a 1998 plane crash.
At 10:31 p.m. on Sept. 2, 1998, Nova Scotians felt their homes shake as Swissair flight 111 slammed into the waters off Peggy’s Cove, killing all on board. There were 229 passengers and crew, including a Saudi Prince and a relative of the late Shah of Iran. In the cargo hold, a half a billion dollars worth of gold, diamonds and cash.
Early into the crash investigation, the Transportation Safety Board (TSB) of Canada made a preliminary finding that the tragedy was the result of an accident. The TSB would ultimately point to a fire in the cockpit, likely sparked by an electrical fault. But there remained many unanswered questions and mysteries.
Years later, the crash remains one of Canada’s greatest tragedies. Now new disturbing information from one of the crash investigators raises chilling questions about the official cause of the disaster.
“It has always struck me as very odd that these movies appeared somewhat in advance of the reality that they so peculiarly mimic”
There’s nothing odd about that at all. These guys observe the rules of their religion very strictly. It boils down to obtaining your intended victim’s consent before you harm him. You warn your target of what you want to do to him and you give him time to object. Absence of any objection is considered to be the granting of consent by the target. Thus the Satanist avoids incurring any karmic cost/debt of the violation.
You have to know your enemy and his beliefs and culture if you want to defeat him. I suggest you learn about black magic rituals, Satanism and the occult for these cabal guys are all devil worshippers.
There is certainly the signature Hollywood prelude
to the ceremonial event[$].
And how would one go about objecting? A conscious acknowledging and saying to ones self “That won’t happen to me?”
I just received my copy of Hess and the Penguins from Adventures Unlimited Press. The book has shipped!
The bomb, or at this point alleged bomb, has been “defused”. Now I have some experience using web search engines but I not yet been able to find a definitive picture or video, official or otherwise, of the ordnance. Or of its removal from the site. There is ONE picture said to be that bomb, with a few men and a blue canopy, but the background does not look right. Or maybe I’m just overly suspicious.
Maybe trawling Fakebook one could at least find some Frankfurt selfies with Bundeswehr transport trucks behind them…
Where is a drone when you need one? DroneLive or RealityDrone – watch in the comfort of your living room keeping us on the edge of our seats.
Predictive programming as Jay Dyer who say on his website. Don’t all these seventy-year-old bombs sites not been noted already. And been accounted for before any building at these sites.
BARGGG!!!! < what one of the main "hoods" in the NYC gold heist says to another to bust into the gates under the FED. Down goes the gates. I remember being aggravated w/ the "run around the city" for bomb diffusing information. Until there was going to be one BIG explosion in the harbor… —– full stop….
Several "synchronicities?" Most definitely! Notice the music and movies these days? Well, if your over 40 or 50, you certainly know what I mean. It's as if all musicians and movie writers have become plagiarist machines… just re-releasing the great stuff from when I was a younger man. Right now? The cool music video? a rehash of Vanishing Point (yes, with the White Challenger and Barry Whatshisname…)
I have to chime in on the two movies.. The first one being the Stasi, ahem, I mean Krauts, ahem, I mean Germans ripping off the Japanese… Who just happen to be the "Axis Powers" of WWII. Then the second is of course the evil Germans ripping of The Fed.
With that said, time for the real Vanishing Point! We NEED that bomb to go off and maybe even (God Forbid) have a poison gas component… Then we can have a big poof, (ala magicians) and then some really cool spray rigs spraying water over it like the current canopy……. a little sleight of hand, hocus pocus and another poof and there is your bunny rabbit… or gold sprayed tungsten bars.
Of course this story is nearly insane as an episode of the ACME powered Coyote vs. Road Runner Cartoons… (*We'll name the dump trucks; Acme Locomotion “WHERE IS THE GOLD IN FT KNOX? WHY CAN’T WE SEE IT?” < but like the hurricane? I wised up enough to just "shutup and keep moving." I don't want a tour of the bottom of the Potomac.
What year did they do that huge upgrade at Ft Knox? Was that another "magic trick in action?" < I want my bunny wabbit!
BOOM! (*next trick)
So the rape and destruction of the West by the bankers continues apace. Nothing to see here, move along.
Methinks the entire fiat Ponzi scheme is about to implode and they are beginning to hoard real currency to insure they are the ones who come out on top.
