But for a few Journalists, mostly found internationally, this story dried up a long time ago with a 2009 U.S. media blackout. When I originally found the story in the Asian News I thought for sure it would be front page here in The States, but as most of our newspapers are corporate and communally owned or influenced, it soon disappeared.
Asia News: “Italy’s financial police (Guardia italiana di Finanza) has seized US bonds worth US 134.5 billion from two Japanese nationals at Chiasso (40 km from Milan) on the border between Italy and Switzerland. They include 249 US Federal Reserve bonds worth US$ 500 million each, plus ten Kennedy bonds and other US government securities worth a billion dollars each. Italian authorities have not yet determined whether they are real or fake, but if they are real the attempt to take them into Switzerland would be the largest financial smuggling operation in history; if they are fake, the matter would be even more mind-boggling because the quality of the counterfeit work is such that the fake bonds are undistinguishable from the real ones.”
Since that time the number 134.5 has been used and reused to the point of absurdity on the internet. Type in the number, Google it, and you will see what I mean. All through my life, from hobby, profession, to writing, I have prided myself with the ability to connect dots. I see something not yet understood, but profoundly significant, just as significant as the chosen number 9-11. Something is not right, and it is big. If one wants to silence a story, a profound story, one way would be to dilute it. But I won’t let it disappear with the hope that someday the truth of this matter will finally come to light. The only way is the pluck of investigative journalism, a dying art. Journalism in this country is mostly dead, and it is the death of truth by fear of reprisal.
