    What does Hosni Mubarak have in common with the CFTC? Could it be stealing the people's gold? This could explain the unrelenting nature of the Egyptian people insisting that Hosni Mubarak leave the country and why his family has already fled.

    NOTICE to the CFTC: This is what happens to public servants who steal from the people. (no matter the method)
    Airport Intercepts 59 Outbound Gold Shipments Worth Tens Of Millions
    Posted on January 23, 2011 at 1:14 pm 0 After a week ago we learned that the central bank of Tunisia had parted with 23% of its gold stash courtesy of now deposed president who fled the country with a 1.5 ton shipment of gold, it appears that Egypt is preparing for a comparable spike in revolutionary activity. Only unlike the now former Tunisian president whose gold sequestering actions were retroactive and thus, quite lucky to succeed, Egypt has taken proactive measures. According to Egypt News, the country’s airport has intercepted 59 shipments of gold directed for the Netherlands “worth tens of millions.” The gold, as well as an indeterminate amount of foreign currencies, was hidden in pillow cases: uh, cotton may not show up on X-Rays, but gold sure does. We eagerly await to learn how big the decline in the country’s official holdings 75.6 tonnes of gold will be after this most recent episode confirming that gold is precisely money. And all this happening despite gold’s complete and thorough inedibility.

No records to display.
