Does Germany not have a safe of their own or are they part of the conspiracy? Why else would you give your gold to another sovereign nation? Morons.

The earth's gold has been plundered. Why? Where is it? A recent thread concerned officially stamped bullions that had been hollowed and refilled with ballast. It is no wonder these nations are calling to question the (existence) of their assets.
It is as if the stuff is being taken off the planet.

weird that Fed can do anything like this .. Worlds economy is based on trust. And gold plays a huge role in all of this. If the trust is broken, so is the worlds economy. That's why I wonder about the real motive of their actions. Maybe they just 'borrowed' it and they are afraid of anyone finding out cause every single country in the world will try to move their gold from the US? That would cause a huge world crisis and the world would be on the brink of the WW3/4/5/...
If that was their best choice, what was the worst?

no nation physically brought their gold to the fed and exchanged it. the fed issues certificates of gold and countries buy those certificates. The fed is "backed" by the gold it holds. It has never had the gold it claims to have and now that countries are asking to see it there will be issues. Germany is stupid in teh first place for investing in a physical asset they have never seen but that is their choice.
If you don't mind, can you tell me where you obtained this information ? Per the second to last Banking Committee hearing Two lawyers for the FRB stated they held no physical gold. Which has been their claim all along. The last hearing the GAO's partial audit indicated the FRB had physical possession of ten percent of our gold reserves. Per the FRB, Treasury issues Gold Certificates to the FRB as collateral on fiat money lent to our government. Said money is lent at face value + Collateral + prime. Our Gold reserves are pegged at $42.00 per oz.Ex. gov borrows $42.00 ,Fed buys 2-$20's and 2-$1.00 bills from Treasury BPE at between .08 > 12 cents per note depending on the anti counterfeiting measures. At .08 cents per note the FRB has .28 cent invested. Lent at FACE value of $42.00 + a Gold Certificate for one oz of gold + prime. Said Certificate gives them title to that one oz of gold which they can and do trade at spot. $1,731
A .28 cent investment now garners the FRB. Original loan of $42.00 + $1,731 + prime ? = One enormous gain on one transaction. This info comes directly from correspondence with the FRB.
I know it is beyond imagination ! Most don't believe it and the ones who know DON'T CARE. Additionally one half of that 16 TRILLION debt is owed to the FRB and various other State and Federal agencies as investments. I by no means claim to fully understand the FRBing System. Everything I've obtained has been through simple correspondence, both written ( prior to e-mail )
and of course E- Mail.
... over 3/4 ths of the worlds gold stored at the federal gold reserve had been stolen. DoHS says preliminary evidence points finger to terrorist organization.
Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck), a CIA specialist brought in for consultation, criticizes the proposals. He too is at a loss for an alternative until inspired at home by watching Battle for the Planet of the Apes on TV with his son: he plans to create a cover story that the escapees are Canadian filmmakers, scouting "exotic" locations in Iran for a similar sci-fi film.
After overhearing a chance remark by a passerby, McClane realizes that he and Carver are being distracted to keep them away from Wall Street; Simon is actually planning a heist. Returning downtown, he finds Simon's men, disguised as cops, businessmen, construction workers, and guards, have raided the Federal Reserve Bank of New York via the destruction left by the subway explosion, and made off with $140 billion of gold bullion in 14 stolen dump trucks.
