Head Of German Gold Repatriation Initiative Responds To Bloomberg Story About Repatriation Halt

Tyler Durden's picture


Just hours after we noted Bloomberg's story of Germany's decision to halt its repatriation of gold from the NY Fed, the gentleman at the center of the story, who Bloomberg quoted as saying his 'Repatriate Our Gold' campaign was "on hold" - Peter Boehringer - has come out swinging... The Bloomberg story is "a 'non-news' article with a wrong headline, strange interviewees, old news, and with a clearly apologetic ideological approach." and that's just the start...

From Peter Boehringer (via Bloomberg Businessweek),


Just to set the record straight re this article in which my name is mentioned and in which I am quoted out of context:

a) BusinessWeek/Bloomberg uncritically cites statements of politicians and BuBa-bankers who have or give no proof whatsoever re the untouched whereabouts of the german Gold.

b) Re our campaign "Repatriate our Gold": "On hold" does of course NOT mean that we are in any way satisfied with the current status of BuBa´s ongoing repatriation (far too slow and too little - only 5 tons came from NY in 2013! Not exactly a proof for the untouched existence of 1500 tons in a NY vault unaudited since 1950...). Our public campaign will therefore have to continue.

c) Almost no info in the article can be considered in any way "news". Simply because there has not been any material news in this context since early 2013.

d) Especially the headline is plainly false, because there has not been any change in BuBa´s (too slow) repatriation plans: at least 300+ tonnes will come from NY by end 2020. It is not much - but contrary to the headline, BuBa has NOT stopped the ongoing partial repatriation - enforced solely by public pressure!

e) The political party "Alternative for Germany" has never been part of our campaign - they can therefore not have been "rebuffed" as the article suggests.

f) The political party "FDP" has (with the exception of one (1) MP ) never demanded a repatriation - yet another false info in the article.

g) Some politicians cited in the article can not in any way claim to be "in charge" of the german gold hoard (abroad or not). This holds true for both Mr Barthle and for Mr Hardt: BuBa alone is in charge - and officially, BuBa is independent from political influence...

Summary: a "non-news" article with a wrong headline, strange interviewees, old news, and with a clearly apologetic ideological approach: the main purpose seems to be NOT to give space to the myriad of unanswered and extremely relevant questions BuBa and the Fed have been refusing to answer for decades.

This is all the evidence you need to realize America is nothing more than an empire hell-bent on conquest. Every nation it “liberates” quickly finds its gold looted and shipped off to New York City under the guise of eternal safekeeping. The game hasn't changed much since Rome, except the subtleness of it thanks to more sophisticated propaganda.

This is all very normal procedure for the Fed once sovereign gold has been sold over 100 times. I really believe they will return this gold eventually once hell freezes over or Corzine goes to jail.

Don't think all the central bankers didn't notice those street protests in Germany.

They and the banking industry must be truly frightened given that it is plain for even Helmut Q Public to see how badly they've run the world off the rails.

And Bloomberg is right in there trying to market the paper pusher agenda.

It all goes back to those who took the US and the world off of gold money and onto trading pretend gold.

The central bankers are just the screw-ups at the scene of the accident - although even those screw-ups at some point know exactly what they are doing.

This whole sordid matter of Germany NOT getting their gold back should serve as a warning.  If Germany is having trouble getting they gold that they own, how much trouble would any of us have getting gold we "think" we own if what we have is really "paper gold"?

Liquidity is important!  And I believe that everyone should have liquidity OUTSIDE of the "financial system" (banks, etc.).  This would include gold, cash and Bitcoin (and there have been some fast moving developments just in the past few days).

The below article is a little basic for many of you here at Zero Hedge, but it covers three forms of liquidity that everyone should consider owning:

"Liquid Alt: Gold, CA$H and Bitcoin"

Of course the Bloomberg piece is pathetic.  They are the new mafioso.  Not Italiano crime families, not Russian drug runners - the media is the new Kingpin.

People on the Left or Right only respond to Hegelian Dialectic memes; good vs bad, black vs white.  And no one is acting rationally when oil is cheap (it still is) and labor is cheap (third world).  Everyone, except us on ZH, will squeeze the system dry if they can.  Pensions are deserved.  Invest in stocks while they're going higher and praise the system.  Go travel, buy dinner at a resturuant.

If the gold was all there and accounted for, the New York Federal Reserve would have publically come out with empirical evidence by now to refute the rumours.


There are only 2 possible conclusions;


1). The Fed does have the gold yet they are fanning the flames of this conspiracy.

2). The Fed does not have the gold.


Which is it?

How much egzactly are ve talkink about? 

If 1 tonne (Metric) (t) of gold equals 35,273.96 avoirdupois ounces (oz) in gold @ $1,325.60/oz, then 1500 tonnes equals 70,138,742,064 one dollar federal reserve notes. If 1 one dollar Federal Reserve Note equals 16.0254 inches in area, then @ 144 sq in per sq ft, 70,138,742,064 one dollar FRNs equal 7,805,565,257 sq feet of US currency, or @ 41 sq ft per roll of TP, equals 190,379,640 rolls for an EU estimated population of 81,799,600 people, or 2.32 rolls per person.

As a side note regarding the german gold story, here in Deutschland, there is next to no coverage by the german MSM. You can find some articles on line, but that's about it. Not even worth a news slot on teletext. The World Cup has priority right now, so that means the sheep are fully hypnotized and unable to comprehend any other topic.

Exactly. They would have covered the Federal Reserve and said they got all their gold back. Something is up.

Rather than rattle the markets and announcing some sort of compromise (all the gold back vs something else) they say this.

The Federal Reserve gave Germany what they had and more than likely woud to have purchased the rest on the open market.

Like everything else it does it's all fractionally reserved. Perhaps the Federal Reserve has 10% or less gold than they say they have.

Maybe the Federal Reserve was hoping to knock down the price much further with all their gold shorts than the current price.

The gold that went back to Germany must have been the Ukrainian one. The one that was sent to USA from Ukraine for safe keeping - maybe they even saved on the gas bill and just flew it directly from Ukraine to ze Germans... now the USA is looking at other contries where it could spread democracy and that have a big enough gold reserve.

At night, as Alexander Hamilton slept, Sol would crawl into his window and whisper "Private National Bank" into his ears over and over. At dawn, Sol would sneak out, back to his gold house.

The Federal Reserve is a criminal organization. I don't mean they're silly or stupid. I mean they're actual criminals. They've stolen your gold, Germany. They've stolen your gold, America. It's gone.

And if Putin is smart, and he is....he'll use this for political capital.  All he has to do is spread seeds of doubt.  Cut his intelligence apparatus loose on the US banking system and tell the truth.  Or lie.  It doesn't matter at this point.

And the Germans, after all this, aren't out very publicly demanding all of it NOW.  How can they just swallow being ripped off like this?  They no longer need protection from the old Soviet Union, hence they don't need the US.

You have higher expectations for the German public at large than the United States. If the Fed has "loaned out" all of Germany's gold then they certainly have done the same to the United States. Otherwise, they would easily swap out US gold for German audits. There is no fucking gold .... unless that is what the Fed wants you to believe in order to create a run on the bank.

Maybe there is another reason. With its gold returned, Germany would regain its sovereignty and that surely isn't allowed.

Germany is still not fully independent country. I suspect that some time in the not so distant past, some MIB's made them an offer to store their gold in FED's vault and Germans were in no position to refuse it.

Like maybe in 1946?

We know Hitler didn't store it in New York.

We know that it hasn't been independently audited in New York since 1950.

So... When could it  have gone to New York?

Had to be between war's end in 1945 and last audit in 1950.

I doubt an ounce of their gold is left anywhere in the US. Trashing the US might be good for Schadenfreund purposes, however.

US gold is in London, like they say, if you are not in possession of it, it is not yours.



In 1919 a German woman medium known as the Dresden Pythia predicted a great war between Japan and America as well as a new European world war. Apparently her patriotism overshadowed her prophetic accuracy, for she predicted that Germany would be the victor over France and England. We may presume that postwar German resentment against the French and English also colored this prophecy::

"Part of the French, Belgian, and German coasts will be flooded. All of England will sink into the sea during a terrible earthquake.... At the same time there will be a reemergence of a great continent in the region of the Azores (the old Atlantis). There will be found traces of an ancient culture. Also at other places will new land emerge from the sea.

Are we sure we are not mining gold for the elusive Nefilim to come back and repossess?

"she predicted that Germany would be the victor over France and England."

So, she's really no prophet after all...  But, if Russia hadn't existed (pretty sure she would have known about it) then, yes, France and England would have been overrun.  But, but... and that's how it always goes, there's always something overlooked, either by some "prophet" or by some "leader."

Is England known to have any significant earthquakes?  I wasn't aware of this.

Another Bloomberg story helping the tribe. My guess is this has something to do with Putin's recent press statement about 'securing Russia's and China's gold'. I think they've asked for delivery and Bloomberg has run a story in a attempt to quell public opinion on the logic of gold repatriation in anticipation of a force majeure. Again to help the tribe's banksters.
