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 fluoridealert.org, 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.

So... The best way to end "conspiracy theories" is to act in a manner that confirms the theory? 


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, this is getting tiresome."

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.
