“The Germans will be in shock when they find that close to 1/2 gold has disappeared through leasing and the other half will be compromised.”
“There is increasing nervousness amongst the German public, German politicians and indeed the Bundesbank itself regarding the gigantic risk on the balance sheet of Germany’s central bank and this is leading some in Germany to voice concerns about the location and exact amount of Germany’s gold reserves.”
“The day before the Thanksgiving holiday brought three extraordinary news items. One was the report on the Republican presidential campaign debate. One was the Russian President’s statement about his country’s response to Washington’s missile bases surrounding his country. And one was the failure of a German government bond auction.
As the presstitute media will not inform us of what any of this means, let me try.” Paul Craig Roberts
“Goldman Sachs is about to take over Europe, but you wouldn’t know it by reading the papers.
On Tuesday, G-Sax alum, Mario Draghi, will take the helm at the European Central Bank replacing retiring ECB president Jean-Claude Trichet. The appointment has slipped by the media virtually unnoticed…”

One of my good friends writes this email to me and I believe he is correct. I am not sure if Greece will leave first or will Germany but the result is the same. He wishes to share his thoughts with you but remain nameless:
“The Germans are actually working toward a new alliance with Russia and China, with Persian Gulf support. They look East as they see the West in shambles.” Jim Willie CB
