This Video Explains a Lot

Wonder why the Fed won't give Germany its gold?


Pour yourself a cup of coffee, Folks. Glen Beck does a great job of explaining "rehypothication" - the continual loaning of assets which is what he believes the Fed is doing. Also a subject touched upon by Paul Craig Roberts in a recent article.

DISCLAIMER: I know how we all feel about Glen Beck but he's coming around and this video is an example of it. He may have a way to go, but he's coming around...

After 20 boring minutes...

The Rock Says, Know your role, and shut your mouth...Jebediah!! ((The crowd goes wild!))

But in all seriousness...Beck has no idea what he is talking about.

First, the gold window closed down in 1971, so connecting the printing press of the Fed to gold is just plain ignorant on part of Beck.

Assuming there was any gold left even during 1971, once the petrodollar was born, the vast majority of the gold was sold to other countries way before the doomsday scenario that Beck is describing now.

If any of the European countries were stupid enough to trust the Fed with their gold...well the jokes on them. These countries should've been less trusting of the Fed when FDR stole peoples gold in 1933.

The Libertarian Party, irrelevant since 1971.

The greatest country in the world..

The richest nation on earth..
At who's expense.

Should you have not considered the possibility of this scenario years ago, fractional reserve gold storage, then you have been asleep, or too busy enjoying the good times..time to pay the piper.

Glenn Beck: A lying RAT who helped RUIN Dr. Paul's chances.

NOTHING Glenn Beck ever says (short of possibly a public apology to Ron Paul - on bended knees), will ever convince me to forgive him for what he did to Dr. Paul - AND US for that matter.

Because hypocrite "conservatives" like him, Hannity, Medved, O'Reilly, Levin, Limbaugh, Gibson, Ingraham etc did all they could to DERAIL Ron Paul during (both) of his presidential campaigns - and it worked beautifully.

I'm surprised this site would give that war-mongering, Arab-hating, hypocrite ANY exposure.

SURE, now when Dr. Paul is GONE, the right-wing media is out there saying the exact things he was saying way back then while at the time, slamming him as some kind of KOOK and NUTJOB.

NEVER FORGET!!!... Because irreparable damage to liberty was done.

I agree the poster below who thinks this is just a tactic to sell more gold from Beck's big sponsor, Goldline.

I bet Fort Knox is empty too.

sheesh this is scary

China just bought a bunch of gold too. They probably sold them Germany's gold. This is fractional reserve banking and lending. If China wants their gold, and they don't get it? Those bastards will come and get it. The fed is ruining this country. Those bastards already stole it...

Two birds. One stone.

The people demand gold for paper.
The FED terminates Beck.

Oh and about the reason Germany gave their gold to the FED?
The FED invented "World War". Think of it as the original 9/11.
Create a boogeyman then convince people you'll protect them against the boogeyman. The Germans need protection? Please! They're some of the best killers in the world.

it's bankster wars!

This is feudal lordship wars now.

Are pigs flying?

Or is Glen Beck actually making sense all of a sudden.

Part of me thinks he just wants his viewers to buy more of his Goldline gold.

Thanks Glenn & The Blaze for covering this topic!

We can both admit that we have many disagreements on some core, fundamental issues, and that there is a distrust factor on our side because of the recent past and treatment of our candidates during election time, BUT I personally am thankful for your coverage of this VERY important topic.

Some constructive criticism would be to educate your audience on their alternatives and ways to protect their savings when the currency does collapse. Also, expand your guest list to some Austrians, but that will likely take some extensive out-reach on your part likely due to the aforementioned trust issue. Use your platform to promote what some may see as your competition on the microscopic level, but in a macroscopic view are in reality your ally....IF you are sincere.

We've just be severely traumatized politically, and it's extremely hard to rebuild trust once it's lost.

Exactly -

Either he's genuinely come around or he's realizing what's coming to pass and wants to be FIRST in msm in having reported it so that he can later state how he initially warned us WAYYY back in 2014. Hopefully it's the former and he continues on that path. Time will tell. Ball's in your court Glenn.


I love you man..
but I will not EVER trust this man. Never. Period.
carry on.....

The Golden Truth

Let it spread, like a glowing light across the darkened mainstream media.

No longer a conspiracy theory, rather a conspiracy exposed.

Audit, then End, the Fed, a plea long made by Ron Paul and his supporters.

Is it just me, or does Glenn Beck look more and more like

an older version of the kid from the Christmas Story every day?

Be careful attacking the Fed Glenn, or "You'll shoot your eye out!"

Did I hear him correctly???

Did he say that "Today's money is backed by gold"???

Wasn't there suppose to be a lot of gold "lost" on 9/11 because it was stored below the World Trade Centers? I don't believe it was lost anymore than I believe there's any gold at Ft. Knox :/

It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. – Mark Twain

Good point.

One sad aspect of that point is that in the big picture, to us, it doesn't really matter if the gold was looted on that day or if the rumor of it being looted was simply set in motion to cover up the fact that it had already in essence been previously looted.

One more cup of coffee...

Example #45028112...

Just another example of how The Good Doctor was right all along, and it takes some people time to catch up. What does The Good Doctor advise? Audit, then End The FED.

Dr. Paul also called for a gold audit back in 2010:

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof

Glen Beck and libertarianism?? Wait and see...

Thank you for this informative and useful video. Please keep up the good work!

While I didn't believe that 'They' hated us because we were 'Free', I did believe we were free and I thought we needed to whip the tar out of them in order to teach the region a lesson.

Belief systems are difficult to change. One must truly question one's beliefs in order to find the truth. Questioning others beliefs is far easier and only results in entrenching oneself.

Except it's Glenn Beck

Yes, I know!!

But as I mentioned above, it seems like he's coming around slowly but surely. We can't have a bias against people because of what they USED to believe/teach. If Beck wants to join us, I'll welcome him with open arms.

will watch when i get home
