All Aboard The Gold Repatriation Train: First Germany, Next: The Netherlands?

Tyler Durden's picture

While moustachioed managers, contrary to the far better insight of their superiors, and mainstream spivs are trying to talk down Germany's somewhat stunning shift in thinking - i.e. to repatriate its gold - as nothing but political pandering (or cost-saving); it seems, just as we predicted, the rest of the world are seeing this crack-in-the-confidence-armor the same way we have suggested. As we noted here, the first party to defect from the prisoner's dilemma of all the bulk of global gold being held by the Fed, defects best (then the second, or even the third perhaps) and sure enough, via RTL, we see the Dutch CDA party has requested that Holland's gold supply be repatriated. Who next?

The Dutch government says it has 612 tonnes of gold - with a value of around E24 billion - and is thereby in the top 10 of countries with gold reserves. The bulk of the Dutch gold reserves is in America and, to a lesser extent, in Canada and the United Kingdom. The rest, about 10 percent, is in Amsterdam.

Auric Goldfinger: Forgive me, Mr. Bond, but, uh... I must arrange to separate my gold from the notorious Mr. Bernanke.

The Germans and Dutch do not trust a usurper muslim community organizer.  Who would have thinked-ed it? 

Hope & Change-choom.

Aaron Swartz, his family and friends would have still voted for him with the rope around Aaron's neck and as the T--*S**A goons were kicking the chair under Aaron's feet.

Why the hell do you keep referring to him as a muslim when he has himself surrouded by the ones that despise Muslims the most, (many dual citizen) Ashkenazi Zionists?  Are you trrying to throw the lesser thinking people off the scent of what's going on in the USA?

Yet Democrats, Marxists and the ilk still kling to the infinite spending, infinite debt and infinite money supply argument as somehow a good thing and no danger.

I think Germany and the Dutch see the end game.

And Democrats want to do away with the debt limit in the USA. Bwahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good God. If the gold is gone, and it most likely is, the entire world would be justified in an invasion. This will go down as the biggest wealth transfer in the history of the world. And those that took advantage of the gold smack downs by consuming the leased out gold will partake in the next one! HOLY COW this could be devastating to many........

Guys, don't worry. Our politicians are fully dedicated to the NWO and would never do anything to disrupt the coming formation of the global government and currency.

They might need a bit of cash on hand to give to Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and France - that's all. Actually doing whatever is the best for the Netherlands or the Dutch people is MOST CERTAINLY not on their to-do list.

The Dutch CDA party must meet in a coffee shop.


Good luck with that.

Like calling your lunch money that the schoolyard bully stole yours while it sits in his pocket.

In the US, the CDA would be called a "terrorist organization"

In Europe, we call them "cheap populists"

CDA lost a lot of seats in parliament lately. Maybe a popular move, but with only 10% in A'dam we should hurry... But, you were right Tylers, again. Next!

Netherlands:   "Give us our gold." FED (doing a Jimmy Stewart impression):     "No, but you're thinking of this place all wrong, as if we have the gold back in a safe. The gold's not here. Well, your gold's in Joe's ETF, that's right next to yours. And in the Kennedy hedge fund, and Mrs. Makelin's mutual fund, and a hundred others. You're lending them the gold to build commodities investments, and then they're going to pay it back to you as best they can. Now, what're you going to do, foreclose on them?" Netherlands:  "I got 612 Tonnes of gold in here, and 612 Tonnes isn't going to break anybody."

If they insist, TPTB may have no choice but to turn to the one distraction big enough to change the subject: War.

So when is the SHF? Like an overnight devaluation coming. 

Who's going to do the big one first?

Why on earth anyone would trust the most indebted country in the world with the bulk of their gold is beyond me..

Like giving an thirsty alcoholic your finest bottle of vintage champagne for safe keeping saying you will pick it up next year

The power of perception is in the short term far stronger than numbers, logic or reality.  ZH posters have been prediciting eminent doom for years yet we manage to muddle along.  Of course, we are building the bridge further and further over the water and at some point, it will break.   But the power of central banks is almost as strong as the world view that government's role is to take care of people.   Those are are in a deadly embrace to the bitter end.

Beware of Germans bearing Gold Certificates...

A good counter argument:

Indeed.....what if it is truly all there?

tango's picture

As far as I know the only evidence that gold is missing is the word of blog posters and You Tube videos.  I have heard nothing factual suggesting that it does not exist.  Now, it may very well have vanished but I'll need more evidence than someone "knows" because Aunt Tildy said cousin Sarah's third husband had an inside scoop.

geminiRX's picture

I agree, and if gold is missing then joe public will be the last to know

zerozulu's picture

Joe public still believes US$ is backed by GOLD.

DoChenRollingBearing's picture

FOFOA believes that the gold is there as advertised.

And he sees gold (physical) going to $55,000 after the reset.
