Not to mention his and Michelle’s lavish and outrageously expensive vacations.

BLOAT!? Man it's tough to do any serious BLOAT-ing now. Hell, have you seen SGAmmo's site? Slim to none. Some stuff tricklin' in. 7.62x54R and a few others.

I think I got one of the last 100 or so full-cases(1K) of Golden Tiger 7.62x39mm @ ~$225, just before Christmas.

I'm doin' components for reloading and that's scarce too!

The Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

When did they do it?

The grab from New York is just to provide cover for the real concern - - getting everything the hell out of France before it’s “nationalized” (ie., stolen by the communists).

I remember Rick Perry being mocked for saying he’d like Texas to move its gold reserves out of NY and back to the state.

Why no, Frau Merkel, your gold isn't here, it's been rehypothecated to build fake cities in China, to invest in fake solar companies in California, and to build electric cars and windmills......How much do you need to get you through the week and keep Old Man Potter from owning everything?

"This just in: While average Europeans still think President Obama is the 'bees knees', Europe's leaders think he's a blitering idiot, and are taking steps to protect themselves. Today, Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel ordered all of her country's gold reserves moved out of New York and returned to Germany’s Bundesbank, declaring, 'I'll be damned if that moron tries anything with our gold.' Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was found under his desk sucking his thumb."

The USA does not have any more gold reserves....Clinton reputedly emptied Fort Knox during his regime. The Fed needs to come clean.

Germany wanted to do this back in 2009. Wonder why they didn’t then and are threatening this again? I’d hate to be the insurer of such a cargo.

Speaking of ‘looking’, why has no one actually seen the gold at the NY Fed Res and Ft Knox? Germany wanted to view their gold back in 2009, they were denied.

Due to the economic wisdom, or rather lack thereof of our nation’s leaders since President Reagan, the shoe is on America’s foot this time. No sane nation will come to America’s aid. The cost will be too high and it is doubtful the entire world could bail America out, and then there is the thought of the world having us right where the world has wanted us since WWII. Even lead is becoming expensive. Cartridge prices say volumes. Gonna not be fun for much longer. The American people do seem to have sniffed this one out though, and preparation is continuing. Encourage us all to hang in there. May America and America’s Constitution survive! And Lord, a request to remove this cup before America. Amen.

"Anonymous is a globalist pysop. Clever how they conveniently drop the “We Are Legion (demons)” tag when they’re trying to incite largely Christian patriots into a hot civil war."

"If we follow the likes of Anonymous and Alex Jones, we follow them straight to hell."

I am surprised your comment has not gotten more response thus far. For the record, I agree with you--though I did enjoy seeing Jones take Piers Morgan apart recently.

And to your point, can't anyone or potentially any gov't sponsored agency be "Anonymous"? How hard is it to get one of those masks and put a vid on youtube or sent to the media proclaiming this or that anyway?

For me, I have also been skeptical of the whole Wikileaks thing as well. Pics of the Wikileaks "batcave" in Sweden that started showing up a few years back (just in time for the controversy) and all of the slick lighting, etc just seemed too over the top.

Several years ago I made the move away from the cities. I have a huge garden every year, can food, live on the Snake River so fishing and hunting are inexpensive pursuits. I have another 3 acres up the road if I need more food grown. Quail and pheasant have to be chased out of the garage ocationally and I have to keep the deer out of the garden with a big Piraneese dog.
Consider a move for your famillies safety.

U.S. bonds are going to crash. The feds printed too much monopoly money. That means get ready for massive inflation. The price of food and goods is going to double.

Same thing happened in the 1930's. We're heading for a depression. (We're already in a recession, but no one wants to talk about that. It makes Oboma look bad.)

Welcome to Obomas land of Hope and Change, folks. "Hows it workin' out for ya now?"

I felt like you did about Glass–Steagall Act, but it appears not to have been the case. The bigger issue is government backing, moral hazard, and regulatory capture.

The Bundesbank says it (the NY Federal Reserve) holds almost 3,400 tonnes of gold that was valued at €132.8-billion ($176.6-billion U.S.) as of Dec. 31.

Good luck repatriating.

NY Fed to Germany: “It was here the last time we looked, honest”

....................

Bankers holding “your” gold has been a scam throughout history. They don’t hold it they loan it. You think it is being held but they’ve loaned it out and make interest. They depend upon the belief that not everyone will ask for their gold at the same time. The Federal Reserve is a bank. The question needs answered is our USA gold in Ft Knox?

Far better to watch a sane person like Ben Shapiro (on Twitter), author of "Bullies", take Lefties like Piers Morgan apart. bttt
