White House Petition To Publicly Assay And Validate The US Treasury's 8,100 Tons Of Gold

Tyler Durden's picture




 

In the past few weeks there has been a veritable explosion of White House petitions ranging from the bizarre to the surreal to the outright absurd, including such demands as Texas (and other southern states) seceding, deporting Piers Morgan, not deporting Piers Morgan, creating a Joe Biden sitcom, and even making a total mockery out of the US, and global, monetary system and evading the debt ceiling using a cheap, platinum coin-based parlor trick.

All of these are, for lack of a better word, a la carte distractions launched by bored American citizens, meant to evade the menial drudgery of everyday life, and, generally, reality. In short: entertainment. And, logically, virtually none have so far contained actual, actionable provisions, that stood to benefit all Americans, instead of just one half of the ideological or party split. At least not until a new petition appeared two days ago, one demanding that the administration do something that has never been done on the public record: perform an assayed public audit of all the 8,100 tons of gold owned by the US Treasury. And not just any audit, but one including "professional auditors outside of the Mint, Treasury, GAO, Inspector General and Federal Reserve system."

That is one petition, which unlike all the other gimmicky wastes of time, that we (and certainly the German people if not the Bundesbank) would wholeheartedly endorse, and one which we hope promptly crosses the 25,000 signature threshold needed for a formal response from the White House.

Sadly, the response will be one denying what the people demand, but it will be interesting to see just what excuse the White House uses to shoot down an idea that is far more worthy of people's time and attention than "minting" coins whose only real symbolism is that America is flat broke.

If he can get an audit, I'll vote for him to stay.

Why do we need 25,000 signatures to get something done that should happen EVERY year ?

I volunteer to be part of the team that would do the audit.  Specialists (chemists, auditors, gold experts, statisticians) are of course needed primarily, but generalists are needed as well, if only to be able to communicate with, uh, the US People the results of the Gold Audit.

This Audit will never happen.  This is just mental masturbation.

Look. Your government hates you and wants you dead.  Can it be said any more plainly?

Your government does not give one single solitary shit what you want.

They do, however, care about what you think and what  you do. So go sign the petition and let them know what you think!

He also doesn't go into the concept that previous metal is a transfer of wealth. Which reminds me of my boating accident while ferrying my precious metals.

For example, if you are on the island of fiat money and want to cross the ocean to the land of NEW fiat money, you'd better have a boat. Precious metals is that boat. Does he believe that the transfer to a new world currency will be smooth and will not cause anyone a loss of wealth (with the exception of bankers and politicians)?

I take comfort in knowing that my boat has been repaired, and should I ever acquire more precious metal to replace what was lost in the boating accident, I will have a vessel to the safe land of new fiat money.

Another 'low information', big-mouthed, moron.

So, one of the reasons he's selling gold because "Gold Rush" is on TV, which means there so much gold being produced that it'll never grow in value?  I've seen that show, the amount they dig up is hardly going to rock the precious metals world! He doesn't have a clue.

he makes one or two points;  gold production is listed as having made a new peak in 2011.  Production has been up for 3 years running.

This would more than explain the ceiling on prices.

You think the WH has those petitions up because they value your input?  They're tracking your IP so they know who the troublemakers are. Go ahead- create that account at Whitehouse.gov.  You gotta be kidding me.

Remember the first time you realized all that spam in your inbox was because they were scanning your emails and selling the results to "internet marketers"?  Same thing with this petition bullshit.  Show up on too many of those petitions and your house will be targeted for a drone strike someday.  Or sent enough spam from MoveOn.org to make you WISH you were targeted for a drone strike.

Jena, I've been very foolish. When we were first married, I had him well shackled on a short leash. Over the years he's slowly coerced me to loosen it bit by bit.

I signed. When they get nervous, they do things. The smart people don't get nervous, but they're not the ones in power. They're the ones that tell the people with power what they should do. They do that so when the ones with power get deposed, they're still there to 'advise' the successor. Maybe just maybe it'll make someone in power sell all the rest to drive down the price. We will have a chance then, because they could never ever imagine what we really want. All their plans are to prevent them from being cast down and replaced. It passes their imagination entirely that we should wish to have them cast down and put no one in their place. When the global economy collapses and monetary reform happens we will have a chance to get the government out of the money business entirely. The government should only decide what a unit is and provide minting services to convert specie to coins. No more 'helping' the economy by 'stimulating' it. Taxes must be raised to increasse spending, so try it and see if you get reelected.

from the treasury site:

Total - Treasury-Owned Gold $11,041,059,958

well! this is *GREAT* news!

even if it turns out there's nothing in the vaults, they can buy $11 billion of gold and put it there.

we're only talking maybe 2 days' worth of tax receipts.

it would be even better if the total were more like $1100 worth of gold. that way, an individual citizen could just step forward and re-stock the vaults

Sat, 01/12/2013 - 01:09 | 3146559 DoChenRollingBearing
DoChenRollingBearing's picture

That very same figure ($11,041,000,000) is gold valued at $42.22 / toz.  (Interestingly, the Federal Reserve carries "gold", actually Gold Certificates that the US Gov't gave them after seizing the gold in 1933 valued at: $11.041 billion!)

Of course, ($1650 / $42.22) * $11 billion = +/- $430 billion, which is ALSO a number I have seen at FOFOA, and THAT may be the value of those 8200 (+/-) tonnes at current market.

Cross-calculation: (8200 tonnes = 8,200,000 kg = 255,000,000 toz) * $1650 = $421 billion.

No, it's not. The value of 8200 tonnes of gold cannot be priced in dollars, because if you attempted to buy that much you'd immediately corner the market. The amount of dollars required to create gold out of thin air is, by definition, infinite.

What grand purpose does this audit serve? Let's just say the U.S. has very little of the gold presently stated. So what? We are even more broke than 17 TRILLION in the hole! The whole world operates on a fake system and you people want them to prove that our financially insignicant gold reserve is real. They invent 2 trillion dollars every year! Worrying about gold is quite silly.

Unless, of course, the (physical) gold is worth a lot more than $1650 / oz.  Above I did a rough and ready calculation showing our 8200 tonnes of gold (if actually all there) would be worth some $421 billion.

FOFOA has suggested that the Treasury just pick an arbitrary high price, and offer to buy ANY AND ALL GOLD for that number.  He suggested $5000 or $10,000 just as an example.  Once the Treasury does THAT, that price would then become the wroldwide FLOOR for the price of (physical) gold.  Probably the next thing that would happen would be Freegold.  Let's do some arithmetic:

($10,000 / $1650) * $421 billion = approx. $2.55 trillion.

If FOFOA is right about $55,000 or even is newer number of $100,000, then:

($55,000 / $10,000) * $2.55 trillion = approx. $14.03 trillion.  Debt paid!

Who loses?  Those not owning gold.

That is the heart of it...asshole "progressives" love to rant and rave about "the publics airwaves" being abused by corporations & their minions.

What is CNN?

This douchebag (Piers) is not a citizen of this republics airwaves. He's a fucking alien who's own country doesn't want him back.

Using one human right to attack another is a game and I'm ready to use BOTH and all of them.

If the Founders would have had Bushmasters instead of one shot muskets it would have saved lives by shortening the war dramatically. If the Mom in Georgia would have had a Bushmaster in the closet she wouldn't have run out of ammunition and this faggot ex-con would be dead instead of held in critical condition at our expense.

Now we have Sheriff Joe Biden coming fucking forward with non-sensical "smart gun" technology where only the one who bought it, can use it.

Great, so the perp blind sides grandpa in a dark room life/death struggle, grandma flips on the light, see's the perp beating the shit out of grandpa, see's the gun laying on the floor, picks it up...aims carefully...squeezes the trigger...and the perp just grins at her while finishing off grandpa.

Excellent Joe! Fucking idiot!

i was living in the UK when 'piers' - (what sort of toffee nosed social climbing parent would call their child that)

was doing a showbiz column in a rag comic called the sun.

he was a self important cocksucker then and nothing has changed - i can therefore confirm that he is not popular in the failed experiment that is the uk today.

Piers Morgan as an individual has a right to spew whatever he spews.
Everyone else has a right to ignore him.
We should try to stop our habit of letting the entertainment value distract from and usurp the problem.

Piers Morgan is a tool, in the greater scheme.

I suggest directing attention to his employer.
That gets us much closer to the problem.

I don't care for him, and disagree with him strongly on the gun debate, but the whole deport him for saying what he's saying is really rubbing people the wrong way.

I have a friend in the people's republik of Mass who after many discussions over the course of years, has become pro-RKBA. Apparently Larry Pratt of GOA was on the deport Piers bandwagon, and she labeled GOA as hypocritical for backing the 2nd and not the 1st -- people who are thinking this way are the exact ones we need for the cause of freedom, and throwing fuckwad journalists under the bus doesn't not help the cause of freedom, no matter how justified it may be.

I understand its rubbing people the wrong way but they're thinking of it wrong as well in my estimation.

We can agree the First Amendment does not supercede the Second Amendment?

He is advocating for restrictions and bans on the Second. This has to mean something to everyone or everything in the Bill of Rights means nothing.

Permit me a side tirade...why is it that the first words out of any "progressive" mouth always involves some new government law, restrictions/impositions/bans on liberty & freedom...and/or fees or fines to be levied on the People where there were none before?

I have absolutely no doubt that this hypocritical statist prick (who will not tell the public whether or not HIS OWN BODYGUARD carries a gun) would like nothing more than to do away with government recognition of our God given rights. He thinks elitists like him in the nanny-state knows best for all despite all historical fact to the contrary.

Its what these SOB's do.

The First does not trump the Second. If he will not respect, protect and fight for the Second I will not respect his First or any other, as he is something less than a free man and shows himself unworthy to live among us.

I have zero tolerance for non-citizen assaults on our liberties and refuse to take the high road on this as this tool of the state works to undermine the very foundations of it.

"The U.S debt should be backed by the braid of unicorn tail"

fortunately, the executive branch responded to this important issue

OFFICIAL U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE RESPONSE TO Restore humane unicorn slaughter to improve unicorn welfare, stop needless & wasteful suffering & create jobs. and 1 other petition

Ensuring the Humane Treatment of unicorns

Thank you for writing to relay your concerns regarding unicorn slaughtering. 

We appreciate your involvement in the We the People project and value your input on issues facing our country.

The humane treatment of unicorns reflects the values of our Nation.
Recently Congress lifted a ban prohibiting federal funding for the inspection of unicorns, which had prevented the slaughter of unicorns for human consumption for the past five years.

While Congress has technically lifted the ban, USDA does not expect unicorn slaughter to resume in the near term as a number of Federal, state and local requirements and prohibitions remain in place.
Furthermore, there have been no requests that the Department initiate the authorization process for any unicorn slaughter operation in the United States at this time.
