Inside An Underground Swiss Gold Vault

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Deep in the bowels of Zurich, 18 feet below lake level, lies Credit Suisse's private client vault. Bloomberg gained access to the 1%-er stash and the 3,500 safes (ranging from 5cm high to closet size). And all you need to be part of this club is a bank account with the Swiss behemoth...

Well, that is all good, if you can get to it. Sad to see the advertisements that leave out all the US rules on banking information to the IRS. What bullshit.

I pass along the latest and last from the DHS ADVISOR

This is a series of reports from a so called DHS insider, which you can find in the Hagmann archives. Sadly, he/she has been most-wise accurate. I hope it is a Hoax. For weekend reading, check the previous reports. It's probably all bullshit but adjust yourselves accordingly. It is a sad read. Mostly scare porn imho but good for the paranoid amongst us. YMMV

I don't know whether that Hagmann guy has a senior source, or whether he is a limited hangout himself, or whether he just repeats the doom porn seen on so many other limited hangout sites, but this snippet from your link is exactly true:

"As often said by another of my sources, the U.S. is a captured operation. The lie is bigger than most people realize or are willing to confront."

That lie, from the very inception of the USA, and also through the source of much of the 19th century funding of the big bankers and industrialists, is so massive that no American would be willing to confront it. I have seen nothing on the internet or by published authors that goes to the heart of that lie and all of its linked manifestations. And if I were to set it out here [again], it would either be deleted [again] or I would be banned (even though it has nothing to do with Semites).

I never use it, since I stay in the basement

and the basement door is always unlocked in case my friends want to stop by and chill or whatever

which is also like those nice vaults

A bit more digging on Hagmann and I'm fairly convinced he's a limited hangout. This does not mean that his "insider" info is not to be taken seriously (though most of us here already know there will soon be a crash) ... maybe 'they' want us to know (or at least their own people to know...since they can't put any of their plans down on paper directives that might get leaked).

One snippet from the linked article raised my BS antenna before I actually got to the other snippet that I quoted above. It was:

"Do you remember former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announcing that the Pentagon was unable to account for $2.3 trillion in the defense budget? That was on September 10, 2001, the day before the attacks of 9/11. Some suggest that 9/11 was orchestrated, in part to cover up the missing money, which is ludicrous."

That assertion is not at all ludicrous! One story, 'Gold Warriors - Murdering Liberty and Killing Hope on 9-11', that I can't confirm or reject (but I was close to some of the players back in the '70s and '80s and know their CIA connection), is that hundreds of millions of dollars of Brady Bonds linked to Marcos' gold and the financing of Russian oligarchs just prior to the fall of the USSR were due for redemption on Sep 12, 2001 ... and that those bonds were held in the basement vaults of the WTC and were being handled by Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers (whose offices were each just above the impact floors of the 2 towers). The section of the Pentagon that was hit was also exactly where the investigators into those bonds and the missing $2.3 trillion had just been moved to.

This Welch guy, back in 2006, did a review of Hagmann that also rings reasonably true (notwithstanding his "Reversed Speech" mumbo-jumbo):

http://ken-welch.com/Reports/Hagmann.html

 

"Of course Hagmann will tell you that it [9-11] was all the work of Arab extremists. He can't go a day without reminding everyone that the same Jihad-crazed Arabs that attacked America on 9-11 are also planning to get you too."

However, 9-11 Truth is a two-edged litmus test - if you're a 'truther' you can be branded as a crazy anti-state atheist (and have your real message dismissed) while if you're a 'believer' you're not taken seriously by those with a functioning brain.

mbutler101's picture

I think Hagman's point was more to say that things are planned to happen in rapid succession. Many combination punches to keep you off balance, just like Fight Club. We've been conditioned to have the attention span of a gnat...historically, negative news like that was never released on a Monday, but when you know X is planned for the next day, it conviently gets lost on the back pages. There is something like 8.5 trillion now unaccounted for from the Pentagon budget since 1996, so I think stealing money is always a given, but the primary objective is always control and moving the herd in the desired direction.

I don't disagree with any of that. However, I'm expecting it to be more likely to be 2015 before they have all their ducks in a row for 'the big event' (MRAPs in every county; digital currency in place; TSA scanners at every border crossing; Congress and Administration totally discredited; etc). They also keep falling behind schedule, with hiccups like Khadaffi, Syria, Iran, global cooling, Fukushima, EU collapse, etc.

I'm still not sure what to make of Martin Armstrong and his "predictions to the day" based on his cycles (which have changed over time to ex-post-facto fit better to unfolding events), but his entirely plausible date for a crash is Sep 30, 2015.

I have doubts about all Internet news, predictions and hyperbole.

Just because it's on the internet doesn't make it true.

I only present this as new information so that a reasonable individual can evaluate and analyze the probabilities and worth of the information being presented, analyze its worth and act or prepare/disregard according to each individuals needs.

I don't  trumpet this as a warning, only as information with which to consider future plans and implications of action.

Each individual should act according to their beliefs, not mine.

In essence, keep a weather eye out for developments.

Its been there since the Templars got burned at the stake in 1314. That Oligarchy money line had to find a safe haven.

Remember in the historical time line LOtharingia was the "golden crescent". The neutral territory between France and Holy Empire. The Swiss became redoutable fighting nation providing mercenaries during Wars of Italy.

After battle of Marignan, King Francis I signed a perpetual peace with them. They became the Pretorian guard of French kings and POpe from that day on. So yes, the Swiss won their right to peace by becoming the mercernaries of the Kings of largest european nation and the House of God.

After that, this neutral enclaved territory in the mountains started making cuckoo clocks, and Swiss neutrality and "safe haven" status was born. Nobody wanted to die in those mountain regions to challenge this warrior race for their hard earned wealth.

Now its become unwritten tradition that glints of gold, fiat clearing house and Davos Oligarchy rule!

I don't trust any big bank to hold gold for clients. Everyone of them is corrupt and subject to all sorts of bribery/blackmail/threats, which is why NSA is so important to TPTB.

We may never find out the extent of the corruption the various gov'ts have engaged in but I do think that eventually we will hear about these cases of missing gold from big clients that are referenced.

We are by law required to tell the IRS is we have a foreign account, but is a safe deposit box an account?
