If mainstream financial news organizations ever work up the courage to report honestly about monetary gold, the commanding heights of the issue will have been mapped out for them by U.S. Rep. Alex X. Mooney, R-West Virginia. 

After all, where can investigative journalism start better than with questions that already have been shown to be too politically sensitive for the highest government officials to answer, even when a member of Congress is asking?

Maguire discounts gold confiscation, says bitcoin threat to dollar grows

Maguire adds that there seems to be a big shift of investment from gold exchange-traded funds into bitcoin ETFs and that bitcoin is becoming as much a threat to the dollar as gold is.
