Does the Fort Knox Gold Really Exist?

The Fort Knox Bullion Depository OFFICIALLY contains 147.3 million ounces of gold.


The gold is listed on paper and in official pronouncements.

However, it has also been officially pronounced that:

  • “If you like your health plan, you can keep it.”
  • Unemployment in the US is currently under 5%.
  • There is very little consumer price inflation in the US.
  • The CFTC found no manipulation in the silver market.
  • Benjamin Bernanke: “…the impact on the broader economy and financial markets of the problems in the subprime market seems likely to be contained.” and “The Federal Reserve will not monetize the debt.”

It is wise to question official pronouncements and remain skeptical.

According to reliable sources the Fort Knox Bullion Depository has not been properly audited since the 1950s. Much has happened in six decades. For example: Many gold bars could have disappeared long ago yet remain on official paper records.


Gold is no longer an important asset in our global debt based digital and paper currency system.

If the Treasury says the gold still exists, then it must be safely stored in Fort Knox.

What difference does it make?


I previously wrote about various scenarios regarding the Fort Knox Bullion Depository in “Fort Knox Paradox.”

I recently published a novel about the gold that might (probably not) be stored in the Fort Knox Bullion Depository, how the gold, even though missing, could pass an audit, and I describe a cover up scenario that meets the needs of politicians and bankers.

The novel begins:

7:20 am, September 11, 2015

An intruder standing on the roof of the Fort Knox Bullion Depository on the morning of September 11, 2015 would have seen the sunrise in the east. It was a magnificent golden sunrise that inspired visions of glory, wealth, and beauty.

However, if that intruder had turned to the west he would have seen three drones flying 30 feet above the treetops directly toward the Fort Knox Bullion Depository at slightly more than 100 mph. Most people would not have understood the deadly potential of those flying machines. However, a day later the entire world would be shocked, and the consequences would ultimately affect more people, lives, and careers than anyone could reasonably expect.

Each drone was armed with four rockets and contained seven kilograms of high explosive which were primed to explode upon impact.

Drone number one fired a rocket at the main gate from 1,000 yards. A second rocket was fired a moment later, streaked toward a machine gun turret and destroyed it. The third and fourth rockets demolished the remaining machine gun turrets. Drone number one flew directly toward and crashed into the front door of the Bullion Depository and exploded.

Drone number two circled to the back and fired all four rockets into the two overhead doors of the Fort Knox Bullion Depository and then crashed into the right rear overhead door severely damaging it.

Drone number three fired all four rockets toward the front door, climbed to 3000 feet in altitude, and power dived into the roof of the building where it exploded in a fiery blast. The explosion and fire were impressive but did no damage to the interior of the depository.

Two Hours before the Drone Attack:

Two hours earlier and about eight miles west of the Fort Knox Bullion Depository three large transport trucks and one black suburban turned off Highway 144 into the parking lot at the Stonebridge Realty…

The novel is based on speculation, not insider knowledge.


From the back cover:

Three Chinese drones shocked the world when they attacked the Fort Knox Bullion Depository. The attack created a smoking mess and provoked a media sensation, deaths, political scandals, and many questions.

  • Who sponsored the attack and why?
  • Are 147 million ounces of gold secured inside the vault, or has the gold … “disappeared” since the last audit over 60 years ago?
  • Will a new audit confirm the gold remains in the vault?
  • Why are Republicans demanding an audit?
  • Why are Democrats resisting an audit?
  • Who hired a “hit team” to take out the drone controllers?

“Fort Knox Down!” is a fascinating novel centered around the Fort Knox Bullion Depository, the 147 million ounces of gold that might be stored inside the vault, and the intrigue, scandals, and deaths that resulted from the attack, political reactions, and subsequent cover-up.

  1. Gold and silver reigns supreme as non inflatable money. Earth to Hillary: IT MATTERS!

    And if Satan is successful in using trickery to install Hillary instead of the clearly preferred candidate (Trump), the US dollar and the United States of America, is for sure, DOOMED, and World War 3 will quickly follow.

    The last time anyone saw inside Fort Knox was in 1964 when Goldfinger was trying to irradiate the gold inside Fort Knox and make it useless for 50 years.

    If the gold that is supposed to be in Fort Knox doesn’t matter, then why is the Fed and the communist democraps so intent on denying an audit? If it truly doesn’t matter if the gold is there or not, then it doesn’t matter if an audit shows that the gold disappeared long ago.

    But anyone with one molecule of brain matter knows that it is the difference between the US and its people continuing to live beyond their means, or instant poverty.

    The typical maxxed-out American, knows that even a credit card is backed by something (a credit limit), so it follows that the dollar must also be backed by something tangible.

    If it were to be discovered by the world that Fort Knox is empty, the “difference” Hillary, is the US dollar continuing to be the world reserve currency and all the exorbitant privilege that flows from it, or a third world wheelbarrow currency.

    It is just that simple. There is no in-between. The US has no choice but to continue the grand facade that the Fort Knox fairytale be kept alive, and the moment that there is any doubt as to the whereabouts of the Fort Knox gold, the US dollar will become instantly and completely worthless.

    The only thing backing the US dollar is hot air and confidence that the Fort Knox gold is still there. Once the confidence is gone, the only tool that America has left to force the world to accept the dollar, is an arsenal full of thermonuclear devices.

    That’s why it matters if the gold is still in Fort Knox Hillary.

  2. Hillary did not say “What does it matter … “. She said, in fact, “What difference does it make” ? In the case of Fort Knox, I believe it does make a difference. As a matter of fact, it is better for everybody involved including us the goldbugs, if everybody assumes the gold is there. Nobody is going to benefit from a collapse of the Dollar. The longer the Dollar persists, the more time we have to accumulate the yellow metal.

    According to the US Treasury, the 8,000 tons of gold are stored in deep storage, most likely, in some type of a mine, for security reasons. But even if these 8,000 tons of gold turn out to be fictional, the amount in question is not that large. I think just buying 400 tons every year, the government could replenish the gold reserve just within two decades. Gold production seems to be at an all time high and is still increasing. So the 8,000 tons of gold represent just 30 months of world gold mining.

  3. I believe there is little gold left in Ft Knox. That’s why there has been a massive resistance to proposed audits. The gold may have been lost as long ago as the Johnson era. There was a story that Johnson made an investment play with the Nations Gold and lost it all. Guys like Johnson win because they are ruthless and will commit murder to advance their careers not because they are smarter than anyone else.

  4. Most Americans don’t have a clue. But older one’s remember when Silver was removed from the Dollar and became totally fiat. I would venture to say that the Gold is 90% is gone! Probably leased out during the Clinton administration under Robert Rubin Treasure. The elite want nothing to do with real money. There hands would be tied, and they would be for-stalled from creating trillions in electronic digits and massive amounts of dirivitives to control all the central banks.and the entire World’s paper promises. GOLD will Return after all it’s God’s money. Ed

  5. You put a lot of work in to nothing ! No gold or very little is left ! Don’t worry Americans are to stupid to care!
    Oh yes I’m an American ! I submit I have been stupid a few times to ! Now im a trump Delegate and getting
    Smarter dy the day ! We are so screwed to the wall !
