Beta Testing QE 4 - "Large Amount" Of $100 Bills Stolen From Federal Reserve

Tyler Durden's picture


A month ago, just before the launch of QEternity, we caught a rare glimpse of what may be the beta test of one of the Fed's latest ploys in "unconventional monetary easing" when bank robbers decided to throw money out of their car in central LA during a police pursuit. Today, a month later, and 4 weeks after Bernanke's latest open-ended monetary easing, incorrectly reference virtually everywhere as QE3 (as Twist has had more flow impact on the market than QE 1 and 2 combined) has proven to be, at least so far, an absolute failure, we learn what perhaps may be an even more "effective" approach to juicing the monetary supply with quite literally brand new, freshly printed Benjamins (the Franklin varietal; the Bernanke will have one or more separator commas). From AP: "Federal authorities are warning merchants to be on the lookout for stolen $100 bills that aren't supposed to go into circulation until next year. The bills were stolen from an airplane that landed in Philadelphia from Dallas Thursday morning. The plane had been transporting money from the Federal Reserve facility in Dallas."

Of course, anyone who has seen airplanes carrying Fed cargo, knows that robbing the ultra secretive GLD warehouse in London of all of its tungsten gold is child's play by comparison. And yet this is just what officially happened. Not only that but the stolen shipment is of $100 bills that will be introduced into circulation next year, giving counterfeiters a solid head start on preparations to further assist the Fed in diluting the US currency in circulation which as per the H.6 continues to rise by about $3 billion per week, and $90 billion per year and rising fast, clocking in at a record $1.074 trillion at last check.

So while the good news from the above is that the Fed will not be adopting the EUR in its plot to completely destroy the US currency in order to inflate away Federal debt that is now rising at a pace of $2.33 for every new dollar in GDP, the bad news is that in order to qualify for what may be the harbinger of QEs to come, one needs to have a good tracker of cargo planes carrying currency cargo. Because apparently all one needs to take possession of said cargo going forward is to politely say "please."

my favorite part?  that the thieves are inundated with cautions not to spend it until more are in circulation.  it's going to be hard though.  just think of the money they could make in the short term treasury market (one year: .18%).

So lets think about this.
A) the robbers had been setting this up for months and given that large amounts missing I see a pallet.
B) said pallets are now in the possession of someone(s) with sequentially numbered notes on paper that will scream fraud.
C) they aren't getting rid of these for years

So why rob them? I'm guessing melt value...these bitches have gold weave...

I go OT when it's pretty important, which I hope isn't too often, but Jim Rickards is claiming LIBORgate is on the cusp of bringing down the global banking system (I've never, ever heard of Rickards making wild claims or engaging in hyperbole before, he's not some lunatic fringe 'type,' and he's actually well-credentialed). I don't know if he's correct or not, but there have been some very bizarre & momentous meetings and scrambling by and of the IMF and other entities lately, as a result of some allegedly ominous alarm bells being sounded about financial systemic risk the world over:

LIBOR Could Destroy the Banking System
"Investment banker and Wall Street insider James Rickards says the Libor rate rigging scandal "is the greatest fraud and greatest potential liability in history." He thinks rate rigging banks could be on the hook for "$2.5 trillion," and "The potential damages could destroy the banking system."

Agreed (re:Rickards) & no idea either.  He didn't add any additional/new content.  It could be as benign as needing to fill some space on a slow blog.   I think he'd be better served by providing some clarification, either way (e.g. "this story originally aired on xx/xx/xx....") .

The orangey thingy is meant to represent gold leaf.

They are saying that $100 is equal in value to a very thin smear of gold.


1 ounce is about 2,000 leaves of gold at  3 inches square.

1 ounce would make 64,000 gold leaf covered bills.

So $100 * 64,000 = $6,400,000

The FED are telling you that gold will be valued at $6 million an ounce, soon.


You do the math.

What kind of sick joke is this? 

These people have no conscience and are willing to justify their shameless, reckless and perverse deceit in broad daylight and are proud of it.

The emporer has no clothes, has been told he's stark-naked but is all the more proud because he believes he's Divine.  And the parade route continues to part and let him proceed as though he is.  I don't know who's crazier at this point.  Those that let him think he's divine are as sick as he is.

Reminds me of the recent show of Caligula.

So what of the possibility that this "theft" is part of a campaign to undermine the new, high security laden $100 FRN so that the case can be made that in spite of all these new security features, dangerous "terrorist counterfeiters" pose a tremendous threat to America? What if the threat is made manifest with a deluge of strategically released fake currency which strikes fear in the public, just as the FED rolls out the new Benjamins? What if the cowardly sheeple run to the "safe haven" of a high tech e-dollar which "can never be threatened"? Psychology: the REAL WMD.

BREAKING NEWS: Prostitue arrested in NYC trying to pay for birth control with uncirculated $100 bill. When asked where she got the bill she replied, "Some Jew Wall Street banker, I think his name was Ben." Authorties called off the investigation knowing it would be pointless.

So is that going to be the new gold backed currency when they let this all collapse next year? Turn in ten of the old 100 dollar bills for the new currency all other currency will no longer be accepted as legal tender.

if you can get pre-geitner signed 20's and hundreds out of the country they will still be accepted after the devaluation.... i can't tell you how many years ago i read this on a tin foil hat web-site that accurately called all the details of the last two changes of currency. 10? 12?

my guess is they call it a crackdown on black market cash. new currency. simple 1-1 swap. every dollar in the bank gets replaced by the new currency. if u have a ton of cash unreported it is worthless. thats how it went in russia. once everyone converts and the black market cash is wiped out....then the revalue against gold happens.

  Iran may be pushing bogus `super’ dollars

by SHAWN COHEN, Washington Jewish Week

According to Livingstone, the Superdollar is printed in Iran but distributed in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley -- a safe haven for all sorts of illegal activities -- by terrorist organizations including Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad. The area is under the control of Syria.

"We are starting to see a change in the face of terrorism," he said. "This is clearly an attempt to undermine the world's confidence in U.S. currency. This also supports programs to obtain weapons of mass destruction."

The Fed is all about managing perceptions.  I suspect the gold used on this note is to get people used to the idea of "gold" as money.  Ah, probably just my imagination :)

Canada pulled a similar confidence trick just this year.  The one dollar coin (the loonie) went from a dull-dark yellow color to a shiny gold coin imitation.
