Why Were The Trillions In Fake Bonds Held In Chicago Fed Crates?

Tyler Durden's picture


While there is precious little in terms of detail coming out of the latest and literally greatest "fake" bond story in history, the BBC has been kind enough to release the pictures of the boxes that the supposedly fake bonds were contained in. While we reserve judgment on the authenticity of the bonds, what we wonder is whether the boxes were also fake. Because while we can understand why someone would counterfeit the Treasury paper itself, what we don't get is why someone would go the extra effort to also create a "fake" compartment in which to store it. In this case a compartment that is property of the "CHICAGO FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM." Perhaps Fed uberdove and Chicago Fed President Charles Evans will be kind enough to explain why Versailles Treaty Chicago Fed crates are floating around in Europe (and filled with $6 trillion in supposedly fake bearer bonds)?

What is also interesting is that a simple google search for Mother Box Treaty of Versailles yields the following:

The overwhelming demand for US debt is attracting fraudsters and scammers claiming to sell real US bonds but are in fact selling fake certificates. If you are investing in US treasuries or long term debt, then make sure you contact a reputable broker. Many people are discovering that the US bonds are the most liquid safe-haven investment, and it is imperative that they avoid these scams in the process of protecting their wealth.

Actually, United States Treasury Bonds are NOT and CANNOT be "counterfeit with laser printers", as every coupon payment is individually analyzed and confirmed by the Treasury Department before being issued to the legitimate recipient. Therefore they remain the most secure investment that an American saver can make. 

Frankly, this is getting tiresome. 

After the supposedly dangerous fluoridation in American tap water (which, according to some crackpot Chinese scientists and, would lower I.Q. in young children), after the supposedly nefarious control of the money supply in America by a few "oligarchs" who are supposed to be able to buy whatever they want in the world with counterfeit money, after the alleged "NORAD" reeducation camp in Colorado and the FEMA internment camps, yet another conspiracy theory manufactured and carefully nurtured by the libertarian "doom machine": the Chicago Federal Reserve would be manufacturing fake T-Bonds and shipping them to Switzerland in order to flood the international monetary market and provoke an hyperinflation. 

I originally looked at this with amusement but now I really think the federal government should intervene. It is NOT acceptable to let libertarian rednecks brainwash their unfortunate children with these theories for example; this is child abuse pure and simple.

This is indeed child abuse of the most insidious kind. The biggest tragedy is that these children are going to grow up mistrusting their own government, in a world full of dangers and risks that the state protects us from. The truth is I actually feel sorry for these people. They live such amazingly pathetic lives, and refuse to integrate into civilized society while constantly rambling on about ludicrous conspiracy theories that make the average American cringe with embarrassment. It is all very well for adult doomer rednecks to choose this lifestyle, but they have no right to infect their children with this garbage.

You brilliantly summed up why the State was invented in the first place: taking people to a higher level, instead of letting them rot in their poverty or low intelligence like it was the case 150 years ago, at the time of children working in coal mines and women being submitted to their Southern husbands like cattle. 

When I was younger (in 1997 if my memory serves me right), I took part in a heated argument with my teacher of Social Policy in med. school about the role of government and the bounds of its actions. We were talking about the rise of antisocial and white supremacist gangs in Idaho and Montana in the 1980s and 1990s. 

I was the only one in the classroom, along with a shy but bright girl from SoCal, to defend the compulsory internment in psychiatric hospitals of conspiracy theorists, racists, neo-Nazis, anti-Semites, libertarians and asocial "off-griders" (as they like to call themselves). 

I don't regret having done it, even if at the time it met puzzled reception and I seriously risked losing my scholarship. 

My reasoning was that to destroy a group, you need to strike at their children, namely, stop the transmission of culture from parents to children. And for that you need to isolate the two elements.

I don't think you belong in a free society.  The solution for all this crazy speech is well-reasoned rebuttal speech, not incarceration as some central power sees fit.  That would be the Chinese model.  Ours has been a success because of the marketplace of ideas.  All these conspiracies point back to a fundamental distrust in anything the government tells us is true because of all the abuse heaped upon us via propaganda throughout the years, propaganda which has been exposed to the sunlight and seen for what it is.  The kookery is a direct result of not being able to trust a damn bit of information from any official source because there is too much agitprop and deliberate tampering and massaging of facts delivered to the public.

But... go right ahead and keep pushing for "compulsory internment".  I - and a bunch of other well-armed "libertarian rednecks" - will "see your bet" on tyranny and raise it with a proper and logical Jeffersonian response... (something to do with the tree of liberty and the blood of tyrants).

Frankly, you should invert your profile picture - our country is in distress and needs help. 

The bond market will ultimately cop to the reality that the US debt machine will collapse under its own weight, and we "libertarian rednecks" won't need to manufacture some conspiracy theory about the Fed provoking hyperinflation.

Instead, we'll see a massive deflationary collapse.

Book 3 - The Golden Lily Treasure by Jeff Prager



By 1960, it was clear to European central banks that they soon would be holding dollars in excess of the official
U.S. gold reserves. Until the 1960s the U.S. gold reserves and the secret Black Eagle Trust allowed the United
States to browbeat any nation into complying with U.S. wishes and desires. By 1960, the printing of fiat money
nearly equaled the U.S. gold reserves. The dwindling ratio of the U.S. gold reserves to the money supply allowed
other nations to escape from under Uncle Sam’s heavy hand. As a result starting around 1960 various nations began
striking out on their own course, most notably France. The role of gold in the Cold War is perhaps one of the most
unrecognized factors in the entire Cold War era. While the Black Eagle Trust still could fix election globally, the
U.S. was forced by their dwindling gold stocks to ease the heavy repression of the 1950s, both domestically and
globally. The result was an almost spontaneous global protest leading to one of the most tumultuous decades of the
20th Century. It was French demands to exchange dollars for gold that led to Nixon closing the gold window.

There's some great pics and documents as well within that .pdf linked above...


Also see other books by Prager:


Book 1 - Murdering Liberty Killing Hope

Deals with the people responsible for 911, who they are, how they did and most importantly why. It describes the
QRS11 Gyro Chip, Smacsonic® and Metastable Intermolecular Nano Composite Sol Gels and provides the data
necessary to understand clearly what happened that day. Further, using photostats of Securities and Exchange
Commission filings, Federal Reserve working papers, depositions, banking statements, contracts and other data it
paints an undeniable picture that 911 was Made In America. Link to Book 1, “Murdering Liberty Killing Hope:

Book 2 - After 911

Connects the SubPrime crisis to the same people responsible for 911 and introduces a number of lesser known
players. The book also speculates on what the American reader can expect through 2012 from a financial perspective
from these elected and appointed financial criminals.


Book 4 - The Suitcase Bomb

Book 4 excerpt:

This story was a short blip on the mainstream media horizon of psuedo
news and disappeared faster then a speeding bullet in a Superman comic
and obtaining information about it on the internet is difficult, to put it
mildly. We start off with this report from the UK Sunday Times:


June 16, 2009
Japanese pair arrested in Italy with US bonds worth $134 billion
by Richard Owen in Rome


Italian prosecutors were trying to establish yesterday whether US bonds
with a face value of $134 billion seized from two alleged smugglers
were real or counterfeit.


The bonds were found when the two men — said to be Japanese but as
yet not identified — were arrested while attempting to cross into Switzerland
from Italy by train at the frontier town of Chiasso this month.


Prosecutors in Como said that the two men had hidden the bonds in the
false bottom of a suitcase.

Yes I know, there's some who say it's sarcasm and others that say it's delusion.  Frankly I find him funny but junk him because I can't condone what he's saying, even as humor, given the chance he may actually believe what he posts.  And you know he's being sarcarstic because you're him or you know him personally?  And they are fake.  All fiat, bonds, paper, etc. are inherently fake unless backed by something tangible as in a PM or the result of someone's labor, in my opinion. History is littered with paper, literally, that was created, inflated, and vaporized by it's creators, beneficiaries, and time. We're to believe that all this paper is backed by the 'full faith and credit of the US' and a bunch of bullion locked away somewhere?  That's bunk. You've never seen that gold and probably neither will anyone else because it doesn't exist except in total in the Universe somewhere's, ie. there isn't enough known gold on the planet to cover all the paper in existence.  There probably isn't enough cotton or pulp to print it either, it exists in electrons zipping around a bunch of wires. If a solar storm wiped out every electronic component tomorrow those pieces of paper would be firestarter or toilet paper.  As for if those exact pieces of paper in those boxes were actually created by the legal authority or some guy with a Xerox it doesn't matter to me, on a long enough timeline, all fiat drops to zero...

M$B,  I'm certain you are just continuing with your worn out shtick but just in case: currently, all U.S. Treasury bonds are issued in electronic from (book entry system). There are no certificates. Another wierd unmentioned part of this story, for me anyway, is that I don't know of any UST's having been issued with maturities longer than 30 years. So if these were dated in 34 why did the holder not redeem them in 64? just sayin'.

Thanks collon88 but my question was more of a rhetorical nature. I have previously seen the story you posted...seems like several people posted it back around the time of the first big counterfeit U.S. Treasury bond story.

I almost wet myself laughing at that one... like the banks would ever allow that. But this is a good excuse for something... maybe conversion to a global electronic currency...

Perhaps just a good reason to allow a US partial deafult....

Maybe if I try hard enough this would give me a good excuse to bring my mistress home for a little double whammy with the wife...

 I believe they've already done that - probably on their 6th re-hypothecation, which is to say, their insured to the tune of 36 times their face value, or, to state it in dollars, a 216 Trillion dollar payoff if the funny money UST's default - and - since they are fake - we can assume they're in default - and - therefore - claims will [also] be paid with funny money: the USD.

You can also google for some information. There is a very interesting act from 1960/61, wherein they wiped “approximately $100 million in gold, silver, and other assets as security for this old currency” under the carpet:

The bill would authorize adjustments in the accounts of paper currency issues of the United States issued prior to July 1, 1929, and gold certificates issued prior to January 30, 1934, and the writing off the Treasury statements and accounts of the amount of each denomination of each kind of old large-size currency now outstanding that has been destroyed or irretrievably lost and which in the judgment of the Secretary of the Treasury will never be presented for redemption. The effect of the proposal would be to improve the cash position of the Treasury by more than $100 million.

This act appears to have been enacted, but it may have been changed:

“The act of June 30, 1961, is the Old Series Currency Adjustment Act”

Also a very interesting detail can be found in several Treasury bulletins, like this one:
“Excludes gold certificates, Series of 1934, which are issued only to Federal Reserve banks and do not appear in circulation.”

How can you have “gold certificates, Series of 1934" which are “issued only to Federal Reserve banks and do not appear in circulation” that have been DESTROYED or IRRETRIEVABLY LOST?

More in my post at page 3:

There's more of these boxes too, and it looks like the real bonds were printed on cotton. And there is proof in the "Reports of the Secretary of the Treasury" that nominations as high as $500 million HAVE indeed been issued by the US Treasury AND that they were issuued with interest coupons attached ...

I saw an interesting show which makes me think a hoaxed alien attack is one of their backup scenarios in case the magic of 9/11 wears off or in case people realize that these bonds really were issued by the Fed.  We know the documentary channels are not to be trusted, based solely on the inordinate number of cop shows.  This is to condition us to the normalcy and invincibility of the police state.  Even Animal Planet is in on the act, "humanizing" cops 24/7.  Hmm, wonder if they will ever show the cops shooting a golden retriever in front of some kids during a pot raid?

But I digress.  The show was "Alien invasion: Are we ready?" on the Discovery Channel.  The message was that we will have to rely on governments, experts, and the military.  We will have to unite.

Lynn Rothschild (astrobiologist) came on and said that the aliens would be attracted by the unique biosphere that we are destroying.  They would want to wipe us out without harming the biosphere.  She also argued that the aliens would be much like us.  WTF?  An astrobiologist is saying this?  And Michio Kaku (world government promoter) was also there.

The alien weapons were EMP, engineered bird flu, and tsunamis.  Killer micro-drones were conspicuously absent- probably because we can't create them (yet).  We hit back at the aliens by putting a nuke at the bottom of a mine elevator shaft and turning it into a giant shotgun to take out the mothership.  Anyone want to bet the puppetmasters' inflatable "mothership" will go down in the uninhabited South Pacific?

Let's hope this epic UFO hoax ends with a Scooby-Doo-style unmasking on the White House lawn.

Completely serious question. Why would you fake bonds from 1934? There wasn't 6 trillion worth combined of every currency, bond, real estate or gold in the world in 1934. What is the angle? A counterfeiter would never print 1934 $100 bills. Am I missing something?
