Treasury Secretary Mnuchin Tweets from Fort Knox “Glad the gold is safe.”

WE NEED TO COUNT IT, NOT TAKE A BANKER’S WORD FOR IT.

Is the word of an ex-

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin paid a rare official visit to Fort Knox to check out the nation’s gold stash on Monday — while keeping an open mind for future film projects.

“I assume the gold is still there,” the former Hollywood producer quipped to an audience in Louisville, Kentucky, 40 miles (64 km) north of the U.S. Bullion Depository. “It would really be quite a movie if we walked in and there was no gold.” After the visit, he playfully reassured Americans the treasure was still secure.

“Glad gold is safe!” he wrote in a post on Twitter.

Fort Knox has been seared into the public imagination since the 1964 James Bond movie “Goldfinger,” in which the British spy, played by Sean Connery, foiled a plot to contaminate the nation’s bullion.

Mnuchin, whose action-film credits include ‘‘Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Lego Batman Movie” and “Suicide Squad,” said that he would be only the third secretary of the Treasury to go inside the vault since it was created in 1936 by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

“We have approximately $200 billion of gold at Fort Knox,” said Mnuchin. “The last time anybody went in to see the gold, other than the Fort Knox people, was in 1974 when there was a congressional visit. And the last time it was counted was actually in 1953.”

Rand Paul argues that it’s time to audit the Fed. I assume that a thorough audit would include counting the gold in Fort Knox.

It is time to defy the critics and pass the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, which would be a momentous victory for accountability and transparency and send the establishment’s head spinning, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul wrote in an opinion piece in The Daily Caller on Monday.

More popularly known as “Audit the Fed,” the act would “open up the Fed’s agreements with foreign governments and central banks, its discount window and open market operations, its member bank reserves, and its Federal Open Market Committee directives to thorough examination by the people’s representatives — for the first time since its creation in 1913,” Paul wrote.

The act does this, Paul explained, by removing “the restraints on how the nonpartisan, independent Government Accountability Office can audit the Federal Reserve System, requiring the GAO to conduct an audit within one year of the bill’s passage and report back to Congress within 90 days of finishing it.”

Paul said that skeptics have said that since the nation’s central bank is one of the most powerful institutions in Washington, passing such legislation would never be feasible, but the senator credited “grassroots Americans” for making sure that congressmen don’t give up the struggle to make it into law.

The measure has already passed the House and last year missed reaching cloture by only seven votes.

Paul praised those supporting the bill as “concerned Americans who look down the road and wonder how much of our nation’s prosperity and opportunity will be swallowed up by debt or lost in financial crises fueled by artificial market signals and central planners’ economic tinkering.”

  1. $20 trillion in debt, $200 billion in gold.

    Wow I sure am relieved to know we have that wimpy little stash. The U.S. government blows that much in a few months. Say did you hear? Trump is sending more troops to Afghanistan. Now there’s a bargain.

    If you think the Fed is going to be audited, think again.

  2. Only the third Treasury Secretary, and the first person to visit the vault since 1974? Glad to see that they are so dedicated and attentive to detail regards our nation’s gold supply.

  3. ““We have approximately $200 billion of gold at Fort Knox,” said (((Munchkin))). “The last time anybody went in to see the gold, other than the Fort Knox people, was in 1974 when there was a congressional visit. And the last time it was counted was actually in 1953.”

    Last count was 64 years ago. So if say some bars were stolen in 1959 – how to prosecute the guilty? Probably a lot of the gold is missing or counterfeit.

    ““We have approximately $200 billion of gold at Fort Knox,”. When he says “we” I assume he means the private (((Jewderal Greed Bank))). Not the US taxpayer.

    A lot of gold belonging to European Govts is stored by the (((new york fed))). This gold is stolen and the Europeans will never get it back. It is gone. The Germans asked for their gold back and have agreed to take about 10% or so over a ten year period. That is proof that the gold has been sold/stolen.

    End the Fed and do not pay back money which never existed in the first place. Only repay foreign Govts and other genuine bond holders – not the Fed itself or any other Jew bank involved in the criminal syndicate.

    • I see this one was incomplete when I nodded off and accidentally published it. I hate accidentally clicking on the Publish button before a piece is ready. Thanks for adding the ((( ))) that I was going to add before falling asleep with the computer in my lap.

      • I did not even look him up. Anybody named Munchkin has to be a Jew, and yes he is.

        The sneaky, deceptive, “all powerful” Wizard of Oz was a Jew and the munchkins were the whites, the Eloi of that story.

  4. “$200 billion of gold at Fort Knox”.
    This is roughly the amount of profit the private (((federal reserve bank))) receives from US taxpayers – every year for ever. I think the number may be higher than this – which is only 1% of the money they created from thin air and “lent” to be pissed up against the wall in military adventures. Henry Makow had a number around the $200 billion per year mark. Think what Jews can do with that compulsory tribute, from just one country. They could lose money on media worldwide just to control populations and Governments. That is just for starters. They could lose money on shitty propaganda movies starring Coon heroes with white shiksas getting banged by joos and nig nogs, with dopey white males the bad guys, often Germans. They could bribe just about all politicians and stand over the rest. Same for journalists, teachers, cops, judges. “Get on side, or get out”!

  5. The government shouldn’t have ANY of that gold in Fort Knox. It was, after all, stolen from the American people in the early 1930s. But it should be auctioned off publicly (or, better yet, given to the heirs of the original victims). It should not be unloaded under the cover of darkness.
