A propulsive tale of corruption, conspiracies and international intrigue. A blending of researched historical
fact and literary license that takes the reader through Venice, London’s MI6, the Vatican, and Langley’s CIA.
THE AUDIT exposes individual, societies and governments behind the manipulation of the Fort Knox bullion
inventory, and clearly defines what now sits in place of that bullion. Will this affect the greenback? Absolutely.
When Ronald Regan took office in 1981, he appointed a group of men known as the Gold Commission. This
group looked into the feasibility of returning to a gold standard to curb government spending. At the time,
such a move appeared as a reasonable solution. President Reagan instructed the group to study the situation,
to report their conclusions to congress. The 1982 final report to congress revealed the following:
“The U.S. treasury possesses no gold. The Federal Reserve now owns all the gold that was left in Fort Knox.
They are no more than a group of private bankers holding the gold as collateral against the national debt.
This money has been stolen from the American citizens and placed into the hands of a small group of
private investors in the Federal Reserve, the money changers.”
MI6 assigns Nick Page the task of exposing what the CIA failed to reveal. What follows is the unraveling of
a murky conspiracy whose origins go back to the Roosevelt era, the trading off of America’s gold to supply
weaponry for WW2 allied armies.
According to “The United States Bullion Depository Fort Knox, Kentucky” the record states:
•Amount of present gold holdings: 147.3 million ounces.
•The only gold removed has been very small quantities used to test the purity of gold during regularly scheduled audits. Except for these samples, no
gold has been transferred to or from the Depository for many years.
•The gold is held as an asset of the United States at book value of $42.22 per ounce.
•The Depository opened in 1937; the first gold was moved to the depository in January that year.
•Highest gold holdings this century: 649.6 million ounces (December 31, 1941).
The figures above indicate a massive depletion of bullion between the years 1941 and 2013, in excess of 500 million ounces. Did President Johnson
ship gold to Britain to bail out the British currency? If so, what is the inventory in Kentucky? Government auditors KPMG have failed to conduct a hands- on audit…why?
THE AUDIT is a hard to put down novel that will awaken many readers to the subterfuge buried deeply in the recesses of The Oval Office.
