Goldrunner: The Fed’s Disinformation Campaign Is a Crock! Here’s Why

…Recently, JS [Jim Sinclair] stated that an organized disinformation plan bernankehas begun, complete with a swarm of posters on all credible Gold sites, but how about the “former Treasury official” who is posting through King World News, right under Jim’s nose?  This guy looks like disinformation central because he writes a lot of things to push a lot of buttons, but what he says doesn’t fit into any kind of cohesive picture.  Let’s take a look at some things he has said in his 2-part interview on King World News….

So writes Goldrunner ( in edited excerpts from his latest note to subscribers* which is posted here with his kind permission. Go here to subscribe to his unique analyses with one-of-a-kind charting.

Goldrunner goes on to say in further edited excerpts:

Below are snippets from the former Treasury official (FTO) (Former Assistant of the US Treasury, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts) [the full interviews can be heard here and here] with my comments in blue:

Strangely enough, this guy is “selling deflation” as he defends the Fed while the stock markets are being run back to the highs as my fractal work suggested at this point in the cycle.  That is a major irony!


~“The manipulation of the bullion market is illegal, but as government is doing it the law will not be enforced.  It is an act of desperation……….

~ The fact that the Federal Reserve is short selling bullion means that there is something desperate going on, and I assume it’s related to the US dollar.

~ If the dollar drops sharply in exchange value the Fed can’t control the interest rate and the bond price and so all of the bubbles would blow up………

~ Countries moving away from the dollar to settle their international payments has most likely caused a great many countries to look at getting out of dollars……..

~ A drop in demand for dollars when the Fed is creating one trillion new dollars every year means the exchange value of the US dollar is untenable.

~ The first move out of the dollar is into gold.  In fact is this has been going on since the beginning of the 21st century but the Fed doesn’t want that because if the price of gold rises too rapidly in terms of dollars it scares everyone.

~ If you had a sharp movement out of dollars you would in fact see a sharp fall in the exchange value.  At that point the Fed has lost control and the whole scheme blows up.  So that is what the situation is.

~ [The Fed] is desperate.  They are having to drive down the obvious alternative to the dollar, which is gold, in order to affect the psychology of people throughout the world.”

The FTO is really saying that:

~ “the Fed’s SCHEME is to print to devalue the debt, but Gold cannot be allowed to run into free-rise at this time until the proper point in the cycle. 

~ the Gold price is being “managed” via paper gold. 

~ the Fed is desperate, (but that is only to publicly to defend the Fed against the potential blow-back). 

~ the Fed “must affect (control) the psychology of the people……….

He is doing his best for the Fed in this writing, IMO.  FTO cites the poor supply/ demand for the US Dollar, but then he relates the “false pricing system”, the Dollar Index, only to Gold – where the Dollar Index is created as a ratio to the other paper currencies in the baskets. 

In reality, the FTO’s writing screams “deflation”- exactly what the Fed wants to scare the markets since their real scheme to “protect the Dollar Index is via the false pricing Dollar Index” where other countries must also aggressively print their paper currencies. Worries of deflation in the other countries will create this.  The Fed is really in full control via paper everything, and they are now selling “deflation” right on time.

Don’t forget that [Martin] Armstrong has always maintained that there is “no Gold management via paper gold.”  I don’t think there is really any doubt at this time that both FTO and MA are apologists/ shills for the Fed.

FTO goes on to say:

~ “Now I don’t think this attack on gold on the part of the Fed can last much longer……..It is designed to break up the sentiment among Americans and gold bugs; to scare them; to stop the flow of money from ordinary citizens into gold……

~ The last couple of days there has been an amazing amount of selling on the part of the Fed.  It’s paper shorts, not actual people selling bullion.  They are trying to bust up the momentum in gold so they can hold on to their low interest rates, high bond prices, and continue printing money.

~If the Fed can’t print money they can’t finance the federal budget deficit.  Printing money is also how the Fed buys the bonds to drive up the derivative debt-related instruments on the banks’ books.  It makes the banks look solvent.”

What the FTO is really saying is that:

~ the Fed does not want ordinary citizens in Gold

~ they have to manage Gold via paper gold to continue to print. 

~ Oh, the poor poor Fed!…Suddenly, near the END of the long sideways movement [in Gold] that the Fed created via selling paper gold, the FTO apologist enters the public scene. 

~ Suddenly at the same time, the concept of bank deposits being stolen comes in a wave world-wide, flushing cash out of savings accounts with few places to go, except to be flushed into general stocks where people are more comfortable – right about the time when the DJIA is due to reverse sharply to the downside. 

~ Do the Fed banks need people to sell to?  You bet.  The Fed’s derivatives have done their job world-wide.  Cypress screamed at Europe, “Cut a deal to allow the former GS people to print aggressively, or we will steal your assets!” 

~ There is the protection for the USD Index [with] Europe aggressively printing along with the Fed. 

~ How about China?  China just smiles and continues to buy Gold, metals of all types, and huge chunks of Precious and non-precious mining companies.  Maybe we should do the same, eh?

The FTO continues:

~ (Stealing bank deposits)…is an alternative when the Fed can’t do QE.  When the dollar starts declining or collapses, and they keep printing, it will drive it down even faster.  So when the dollar really starts plunging they have to give up QE so the fallback position when they can’t print money is to grab bank deposits – and not just bank deposits but also pensions.  They will grab both.

~ The whole point is if the bond market collapses, interest rates explode.  When interest rates explode, stocks collapse.  That has always been the tradition so I think they (the Fed and central planners) are facing a wipeout, and they are doing what they can to prolong this….

~ [The Fed] are running out of time and means.  I think they feel they are close to the end game.  They are trying to stave it off.  Look, if you can pass the sinking ship to the next watch – if Bernanke can get out of there before it happens – that’s what they will do and we don’t know what the Fed is telling the Congress.  They may be telling them it’s better to get rid of social security in order to save the budget.

~ What a crock! 

~ The Fed had many years to plan this out.  They went to the extreme of creating the OTC derivatives as a means of control.  They “own the psychology of the markets” as the above shows.  Think about it.  The threat of stealing bank accounts and pensions should have crashed the Stock and Bond markets in one day, and world-wide.

~ They drag this FTO guy out of mothballs to try to create sympathy for the Fed.  At the same time he is describing how the Fed is managing the price of the Precious Metals, a judge is throwing out a lawsuit over the Fed managing the price of the metals.  This guy shows up right around the end of this long sideways correction in Gold and Silver.  Must be a coincidence, eh?


The bottom line for me is that all of the various markets are trading well in line with the fractal comparisons to the late 70’s. 

  • The DJIA topped and corrected sharply at this point in the cycle as Gold and Silver started their first real parabolic run. 
  • The Dollar Index is moving sideways, not threatening to crash – but moving sideways oscillator to the Euro as expected. How many times have different analysts screamed that the Dollar via the Dollar Index would crash?  How many times have analysts screamed that the Dollar Index was in a new bull market. 

Not knowing history leaves one exposed to repeat it, and the fractal price movements of the late 70’s are still repeating.  The fundamentals are still repeating. 

I don’t think that KWN is doing the Gold community any good by throwing this guy at us and, unfortunately, I don’t think that JS is helping by not ripping this guy apart.

1. Goldrunner: These Fundamental Charts Say “Gold Is Getting Ready to Run!”


The U.S. Dollar is being very aggressively devalued in a parabolic…[manner] as we enter the final stage in the paper currency cycle. The government needs Gold to go vastly higher so the budget can be balanced after all of the paper promise debts are added to the balance sheet. Interestingly, Michael Belkin, arguably one of the best analysts in the world, expects earnings for companies to plunge this year causing the DJIA to crater about 30%.  This fits with the kind of correction in the now high flying DJIA that we have discussed per the late 70’s charts where Gold and the Dow would meet between 10,000 and 12.000.

2. Goldrunner Update: Gold, Silver & PM Stock Sentiment Sucks BUT the Fundamentals Are Off the Wall!


Sentiment in the precious metals sector is in the toilet yet the fundamentals for the sector are off the walls positive.  That is not secret, but it is what creates huge market moves in the direction of the fundamentals. In fact, market management will never move price against the underlying fundamentals for too long a period of time.

4. The USD & U.S. Dollar Index – What Affect Are They Having On the Price of Gold?


The U.S. Dollar Index is made up of a basket of [6] currencies that are, themselves, not static and, indeed, are involved in various forms of debasement as nations have taken the view that a weaker currency will boost their exports. As each nation enacts such policies, the result is gridlock, as every action taken to weaken one’s currency is neutralized by a similar action taken by the competing currencies. That is currently what is happening with the constituents of the U.S. Dollar Index and why, as such, the U.S. dollar has not weakened. [Given the fact that] gold tends to have an inverse relationship with the dollar, and has increased when the value of the dollar has declined, we could, as a result, continue to see a capping in the advance of gold prices, at least in dollar terms.

5. Is the First of Many Currency Crises Just Now Unfolding? Are Gold & Silver About to Take Off As a Result?


I expect the eventual endgame to this whole Keynesian  monetary experiment that has been going on ever since World War II [will] finally terminate in a global currency crisis. [That being said,] I’m starting to wonder if we aren’t seeing the first domino – the Japanese yen – start to topple…[It has] cut through not only the 2012 yearly cycle low, but also  the 2011 yearly cycle low and never even blinked [and should it continue its steep decline] and break through the 2010 yearly cycle low [of 105.66] I think we have a serious currency crisis on our hands. Needless to say, if the world sees a  major currency collapse… it’s going to spark a panic for  protection – to gold and silver. Wouldn’t it be fitting that at a time  when they are completely loathed by the market they are about to become most cherished?

6. Peter Schiff: The Federal Reserve is Now 100% Committed to the Destruction of the Dollar


In order to generate phony economic growth and to “pay” our country’s debts in the most dishonest manner possible, the Federal Reserve is 100% committed to the destruction of the dollar. Anyone with wealth in the U.S. dollar should be concerned that economic leadership is firmly in the hands of irresponsible bureaucrats who are committed to an ivory tower version of reality that bears no resemblance to the world as it really is. By upping the ante once again in its gamble to revive the lethargic economy through monetary action, the Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee is now compelling the rest of us to buy into a game that we may not be able to afford.  Words: 1410

7. This Chart Proves That Your Currency Is Being Debauched At An Accelerating (Parabolic) Rate! Got Gold?

[According to the chart in this article,] all currencies are being debauched. The price of gold in each currency approximates a parabola, meaning the use of printing presses is accelerating. Each unit of currency is losing purchasing power at an increasing rate. The trend points to a worldwide currency collapse unless the creation of money stops. [Take a look!]. Words: 282

The price of gold, on a quarterly basis, is 86% correlated – yes, 86%! – to total government debt going back to 1975… and a shocking 98% over the past 15 years!

We believe that we are in the “competitive devaluation” stage presently [see graph below] as country after country is printing money in order to lower rates and doing whatever possible to devalue their currency – to have the fastest currency in the…race to the bottom – in order to export their goods and services. [The next stage will be protectionism and tariffs. This article gives an update on the race to debase.]

If Venezuela were any guide, we would have to say “Buy gold and silver, right here, right now!”…For those of you who hold Bernanke Bux, aka fiat paper, pay close attention.

Those citizens there who held gold and silver saw an equivalent 46% jump in their holdings.  If you think it cannot happen here, you are wrong.  It already has. Words: 295

12. Get Out of the U.S. Dollar and Buy Physical Gold Before It’s Too Late – Here’s Why


Evidence suggests that the “Zero Hour Debt” line has been reached. Get out of the U.S. dollar [U.S. treasuries] and buy physical gold [or equities] before it’s too late.
