Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Zero Hedge yesterday endorsed the petition to President Obama
to commission an independent audit of the U.S. gold reserve
that addresses not just weight and purity of the metal but
swaps and leases.
While most petitions undertaken at the White House's Internet
site are mere entertainment, Zero Hedge writes, the petition
about auditing the U.S. gold reserve "is one petition, which,
unlike all the other gimmicky wastes of time, that we
(and certainly the German people if not the Bundesbank)
would wholeheartedly endorse, and one we hope promptly
crosses the 25,000-signature threshold needed for
a formal response from the White House."
Zero Hedge's commentary on the petition is here:
The petition was posted only last Wednesday and when GATA
called attention to it Thursday night it had only a little
more than 100 signatures.
It now has more than 2,000.
Of course we don't expect the petition itself to extract any
honesty, candor, or information from the Federal Reserve and
the Treasury Department -- only more freedom-of-information
lawsuits such as those contemplated by GATA are likely to
But if the petition reaches the 25,000-signature threshold and
compels a sullen acknowledgment and rejection from the
government, it just might spark some interest in the mainstream
financial news media somewhere.
Gold market rigging as the centerpiece
of the ever-expanding Western central bank scheme
of rigging all markets is now long beyond obvious and has been
extensively documented by GATA:
Lacking are only some courageous journalists
resolved to stop playing their bit parts
in an international performance of
"The Emperor's New Clothes."
So if you haven't electronically signed the
petition please do so as soon as possible and encourage friends
and family members to sign it. It gained 20 signatures just in
the time it took to write this appeal, so it has a chance.
