USA Watchdog homes in on the Swiss ‘GoldInitiative’

Greg Hunter interviews Egon von Greyerz about the Gold Initiative

October 30 – 2014 (30 minutes)

Egon von Greyerz: “Let’s first say that the government is against it. So, they are in the “No” camp and so is the Swiss National Bank. They are not supposed to campaign officially in these kinds of referendums, but they still are making clear statements that it is dangerous for the Swiss National Bank to lose its powers to . . . manipulate the market. So, the “No” camp are afraid they will lose the power to print money, and manipulation of markets is going to be taken away from the Swiss National Bank. It’s too early to call it, but I would say we stand a very good chance. I am firmly in the “Yes” camp, and I am a great believer in this fight for sound money. Read the rest of this entry »

Greyerz: “Eric, people in the West are enslaved to a system where the state takes care of everything. The state takes care of many people from cradle to grave. Switzerland is one of the only countries where there is a degree of individual freedom. For the Swiss it has always been important to have the people make decisions and not to let the government dictate… Read the rest of this entry »

Breaking: European Central Banks repatriate gold from USA

What is this secret repatriation of Gold about?

We have heard from one very reliable source that repatriation of gold is secretly taking place at this moment from the USA to Europe. This is October 2014!

The information contains details about transported quantities by one of the global security firms being much higher than usual, as well as country of destination.

This leads us to believe that some central banks in Europe may be feeling tension and their boards see that the ‘whatever it takes’ QE, LTRO or OMT policy, or whatever they call this monetary financing, can and probably will have serious repercussions.

The Swiss National Bank (SNB) started selling gold in 2000 near the lows of the market. At that same time, many years ago, the movement to stop this selling started in Switzerland which, on November 30, will lead to a definitive choice by Swiss voters whether to a) Stop selling gold, b) repatriate all foreign held gold, and c) maintain 20% gold backing of SNB assets, or alternatively risk being dictated to by the European Union and the ECB.

Of course the German request for repatriation from the USA was a total failure. Germany requested to get 680 tons of gold back from the FED, but received only 5 and were told that they will get the rest back in 2020. There can be only one reason for this delay, their gold is not there anymore.
Since this fiasco and with the change of the Merkel coalition this summer the new party line is: “The Americans are taking good care of our gold,” “Objectively, there’s absolutely no reason for mistrust.” And, “There’s no evidence that German gold at the New York Fed has been tampered with”. Well, “of course not, because there hasn’t been an audit for 60 years of who owns what or how many bars are still in US vaults!”

Repatriation of larger than regular quantities of Precious Metals, especially gold, requires a long enough chain of secure physical transport logistics, whereby a number of people must be aware of start and finish locations. Confidentiality appears to have been unwillingly violated in this reported case and shows again that people make mistakes. As we have absolutely no reason to doubt this source, asking questions to relevant parties shall only be countered with strong denial.
The mere fact that this repatriation of gold appears to be happening in secret confirms what wealth preservation investors have always known, namely that Gold should be held under direct control of the owner. That is the only proof that the gold actually exists.

Greyerz: “Swiss Gold Initiative Poll: YES 45% – NO 39% – Undecided 16%

A report  published in a Swiss newspaper yesterday showed that the YES votes in favour of the Gold Initiative are ahead in the polls and this is particularly pleasing since I have personally been involved in supporting the call for Sound Money in Switzerland. Read the rest of this entry »

I believe we’ve seen Peak Gold* – Keith Barron

THE MATTERHORN INTERVIEW – October 2014: Keith Barron PhD

“ I believe we’ve seen Peak Gold* ”

Podcast interview:
On behalf of Matterhorn Asset Management, financial journalist Lars Schall talked with exploration geologist and mining entrepreneur Dr. Keith Barron.

Keith is a scientist and he explains in no uncertain terms what is going on in the mining industry, the false accounting relative to the cost of exploration, what happened when gold went up to 1,900, why gold versus USD simply must go to at least 5,000, why ‘gold above ground’, if anything, is overstated and why the Swiss GoldInitiative is indeed very important and not just for the Swiss People, as well as Keith Barron’s view on Silver.

This is clearly one of the best interviews on the subject of gold mining and a must listen for all Gold investors or anyone interested in gold, silver and mining

Why J.P.Morgan did not succeed in 1929

Firstly, from the campaign team in Switzerland, a ‘very warm thank you’ for all contributors thus far to the Swiss Gold Initiative campaign fund.

These funds will be fully spent on reaching some 80% of the Swiss population via social media. The national campaign, with door to door leaflets and road side billboards, will officially kick off next week with a press conference held by the Initiative committee. We will keep you posted of course and it will be well publicised in the independent media.

This type of campaign is unique for typical Swiss referenda and will impact anyone involved in the gold space and, more importantly, everyone who is not involved in Gold. This is a unique opportunity to change the debt/inflation game back to sound finance. This effort must simply be made if we ever wish to return to a level playing field for citizens around the world.
To go viral on over 5,000,000 Swiss is a costly affair and we would therefore ask anyone out there, if you haven’t already, to lend your support using the donation button on the right. This will allow us to drive this campaign to the very last day. The arguments against the Elite NO camp are very strong. Thank you again.

Greyerz: “A few weeks ago it was a very interesting situation where the fundamentals and the technicals came together. It became obvious that we were going to see the start of a major fall in the global stock markets, both short and long-term.

Podcast – Egon von Greyerz: “Nigel Farage (MEP and leader of UKIP) was recently in Switzerland to speak about the EU. His view is that the UK and all other EU members should exit the EU since it is a failed union. At the same meeting the Swiss Gold Initiative was discussed. Farage is a proponent of sound money and gold. The Gold Initiative referendum on 30 November could be a game changer for the gold market……..

Greyerz: “Eric, we’ve had a long period now when all news is good news for stocks, and that’s typical for a bull market. But we are now very close to a period when all news will instead be bad news for global stock markets. For instance, the mainstream media is telling people that stocks are falling because of the end of QE and the Ebola crisis.
“Previously, this type of bad news was simply ignored. But as I said, everything that comes out now will begin to add to the selloff in global stock markets. People being interviewed on KWN have discussed Ebola… Read the rest of this entry »
