The Fort Knox Bullion Depository OFFICIALLY contains 147.3 million ounces of gold.
The gold is listed on paper and in official pronouncements.
However, it has also been officially pronounced that:
- “If you like your health plan, you can keep it.”
- Unemployment in the US is currently under 5%.
- There is very little consumer price inflation in the US.
- The CFTC found no manipulation in the silver market.
- Benjamin Bernanke: “…the impact on the broader economy and financial markets of the problems in the subprime market seems likely to be contained.” and “The Federal Reserve will not monetize the debt.”
It is wise to question official pronouncements and remain skeptical.
According to reliable sources the Fort Knox Bullion Depository has not been properly audited since the 1950s. Much has happened in six decades. For example: Many gold bars could have disappeared long ago yet remain on official paper records.
Gold is no longer an important asset in our global debt based digital and paper currency system.
If the Treasury says the gold still exists, then it must be safely stored in Fort Knox.
What difference does it make?
I previously wrote about various scenarios regarding the Fort Knox Bullion Depository in “Fort Knox Paradox.”
I recently published a novel about the gold that might (probably not) be stored in the Fort Knox Bullion Depository, how the gold, even though missing, could pass an audit, and I describe a cover up scenario that meets the needs of politicians and bankers.
The novel begins:
7:20 am, September 11, 2015
An intruder standing on the roof of the Fort Knox Bullion Depository on the morning of September 11, 2015 would have seen the sunrise in the east. It was a magnificent golden sunrise that inspired visions of glory, wealth, and beauty.
However, if that intruder had turned to the west he would have seen three drones flying 30 feet above the treetops directly toward the Fort Knox Bullion Depository at slightly more than 100 mph. Most people would not have understood the deadly potential of those flying machines. However, a day later the entire world would be shocked, and the consequences would ultimately affect more people, lives, and careers than anyone could reasonably expect.
Each drone was armed with four rockets and contained seven kilograms of high explosive which were primed to explode upon impact.
Drone number one fired a rocket at the main gate from 1,000 yards. A second rocket was fired a moment later, streaked toward a machine gun turret and destroyed it. The third and fourth rockets demolished the remaining machine gun turrets. Drone number one flew directly toward and crashed into the front door of the Bullion Depository and exploded.
Drone number two circled to the back and fired all four rockets into the two overhead doors of the Fort Knox Bullion Depository and then crashed into the right rear overhead door severely damaging it.
Drone number three fired all four rockets toward the front door, climbed to 3000 feet in altitude, and power dived into the roof of the building where it exploded in a fiery blast. The explosion and fire were impressive but did no damage to the interior of the depository.
Two Hours before the Drone Attack:
Two hours earlier and about eight miles west of the Fort Knox Bullion Depository three large transport trucks and one black suburban turned off Highway 144 into the parking lot at the Stonebridge Realty…
The novel is based on speculation, not insider knowledge.
From the back cover:
Three Chinese drones shocked the world when they attacked the Fort Knox Bullion Depository. The attack created a smoking mess and provoked a media sensation, deaths, political scandals, and many questions.
- Who sponsored the attack and why?
- Are 147 million ounces of gold secured inside the vault, or has the gold … “disappeared” since the last audit over 60 years ago?
- Will a new audit confirm the gold remains in the vault?
- Why are Republicans demanding an audit?
- Why are Democrats resisting an audit?
- Who hired a “hit team” to take out the drone controllers?
“Fort Knox Down!” is a fascinating novel centered around the Fort Knox Bullion Depository, the 147 million ounces of gold that might be stored inside the vault, and the intrigue, scandals, and deaths that resulted from the attack, political reactions, and subsequent cover-up.
