Many news organizations know all about gold price rigging, including the NY Times

By: Chris Powell, Secretary/Treasurer, GATA

 -- Published: Tuesday, 6 May 2014 | Print  | Disqus 

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Whenever any mainstream news organization publishes or broadcasts something touching on the Western central bank gold price suppression scheme or GATA, your secretary/treasurer contacts the organization to provide the full documentation that would be necessary to an attempt at actual journalism. Today's appeal to The New York Times is appended. At least it drew a prompt and cordial acknowledgment.

Please understand that the summaries and documentation cited below have been provided to many major news organizations and government regulatory agencies. They all know what is going on. But as you have heard many times from your secretary/treasurer, the true location and disposition of central bank gold reserves are, to governments, secrets far more sensitive than the location and disposition of nuclear weapons. For rigging the gold market is the most powerful weapon of all, as it the prerequisite for rigging all markets.

Dear Alan (if I may):

Thanks for your reference to the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc. in your report today about the federal lawsuits being brought against the bullion banks participating in the daily London gold price fixings:

But GATA is a little more serious than the "offbeat activists" of your description. The committee includes people with long experience in the financial markets. While I don't have that kind of experience, I have fair experience in journalism, having been a newspaper reporter and editor in Connecticut for almost 50 years and having given their first journalism jobs to the Times' own reporters Dan Barry and Bryan Miller and photographer Sara Krulwich.

In fact, rather than the repository of "offbeat activists," GATA is mainly an investigative and fact-finding organization, not a "conspiracy theory" organization producing the "online screeds" cited by your report. We have sued Western central banks for information, have extracted much incriminating material from official archives, and have published what has turned out to be the documentation of the longstanding Western central bank gold price suppression scheme, a scheme documented right down to the present through the admissions of the central banks themselves.

We have found that it is simply a matter of public record and as easy to document as it is to put specific questions to central banks about their involvement in the gold market. That is, it is easy to establish through ordinary journalism -- which, unfortunately, mainstream financial news organizations, including the Times itself, have declined to undertake even though most of the research already has been compiled for them. Of course GATA is delighted to share it with anyone interested. I wish that the Times would even look at it.

The most recent version of my "stump speech" summarizing the most important documentation, including Internet links to each document, is here:

Some updating commentary with documentation is here:

GATA's general documentation file is here:

This story involves the surreptitious and undemocratic control of the valuation of all capital, labor, goods, and services in the world. It is a very serious story and should not be left to the offbeat.

Thanks for your consideration.

With good wishes.

CHRIS POWELL, Secretary/Treasurer
