Germany Says Its Gold Is Safe In US Hands, Doesn't Want It Back

German Gold Stays in New York in Rebuff to Euro Doubters
By Birgit Jennen Jun 23, 2014 2:42 AM MT

Surging mistrust of the euro during Europe’s debt crisis fed a campaign to bring Germany’s entire $141 billion gold reserve home from New York and London. Now, after politics shifted in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition, the government has concluded that stashing half its bullion abroad is prudent after all.

“The Americans are taking good care of our gold,” Norbert Barthle, the budget spokesman for Merkel’s Christian Democratic bloc in parliament, said in an interview. “Objectively, there’s absolutely no reason for mistrust.”

All the Euros

aligned with the US are obviously controlled by the same Zionist Banking Cabal, that probably robbed all the gold in all the Western states long ago, to pay their usury debts. Only those who are members of the BRICS and their coalition of smaller developing states are hoarding all the gold they can afford or obtain, and it's seems Putin and the Russian Federation are orchestrating the 'chess game' against the Zionist Cabal. The reason they have become the 'directors' is, due to their understanding of the religous factor and their strategies used against the Russians after the Bolshevik Revolution and the Soviet Totalitarian State. The Chinese aren't religous, don't understand how it functions to currupt and they still have the Communist mentality to deal with. Their way of dealing with it, is to try to squash the Christians who they need to teach them morals and Liberty to move from their totalitarian inhumane governance.

LOL!

How dumb can the Germans be and how dumb can the Americans be.I bet the Germans and the Americans have no gold.The bankers shipped it out years ago and fort knox is empty.What does the US fed have to do with the US government ?NOTHING!

Right. We are no better. We can't even see our gold.

So why should Germany expect to get their gold back when we cannot even see ours? Historically, people have done anything for gold: lie, cheat, steal, & kill, repeatedly if necessary. People became especially irate when their gold was taken from them. Gold Rushes drove thousands of people to migrate countless miles in search of gold. These people had "gold fever."

Now Germany is saying, no big deal. We don't need it or even to see it. Losing 3,400 tonnes of gold is no deal anymore, I guess. Amazing.

More anti-gold propaganda

Headlines must indicate no or declining demand when prices are rising.

Just LOLZ

Enough said.

That Guy, Right There, is Fucking the German People.

They need to chain him and Drag him down Main Street.

Behind a Tank, till there's Damn Little Left of the Chain.

The Sooner, the Better!!!

My guess...

Is the NSA got some good dirt on the Finance Leaders in Germany. Probably the same scenario with Chief Justice Roberts prior to his bizarre ruling on the Affordable Care Act.

Maintaining the Facade

If Germany had persisted the charade would be over. Ukraine plays into all of this.

Gold?

What gold?

Did you see Germany's gold? I didn't see it.

Ft. Knox? Is that where it is supposed to be?

Sorry Gerry, but that gold was placed there over 50 years ago.

Gotta receipt of that deposit? No? Sorry.....

Finders, losers, keepers, weepers.

If I were German,

I'd be PISSED

Hard to leverage

Afterall the USA considers Germany a spoil of war. Its not a good idea to embarass your master especially if his military still occupies your sovereign territory. Sad day for Berlin.

I don't believe we are going to see a dramatic crash. Catherine Austin Fitts predicts a slow burn.

Sounds like someone made them an offer

That they couldn't refuse, lol.

Boehringer can complain, but what else can he do?

Germany has gotten back only 5 tons of gold from the US. They wanted 84 tonnes back in Germany by last year of the total 300 tonnes requested. There is a long way to go for Germany get their grand total tonnage of gold back.

"German gold reserves, the second-biggest in the world after those of the U.S., totaled 3,386.4 tons on March 31, according to World Gold Council data. Due to German postwar history, the biggest part is stored at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; the rest is in London, Paris and Frankfurt."

US: Take the gold-plated tungsten or leave it.[Germany left it.]

Germany didn't want any gold-plated tungsten. The US must have told them that was all that they were going to ever get back.

Germany was left with trying to put a happy face on coming up nearly empty with its gold repatriation effort.
