'Checkmate' for gold against the dollar

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Contrary to the disparagement of its detractors, GATA isn't a "conspiracy theory" organization -- it's a public records, freedom-of-information, accountability-in-government organization that mainly pursues and publishes official statements and documents constituting evidence and confirmation of the Western central bank gold price suppression scheme, evidence and confirmation that GATA's detractors never can discuss or even acknowledge:

But tonight let us call your attention to commentary that -- while not only mere speculation but, worse, anonymous speculation -- is so intelligent and informed (and largely though not completely in tune with GATA's thinking) that anyone interested in the gold market should consider its outline of the scheme and purposes of gold market control.

Fred Goldstein and Tim Murphy open All Pro Gold

The company brokers a full line of precious metals and numismatic coins.

Of course many gold market followers are already aware of this outline -- drawn more than a decade ago by the anonymous posters "Another" and "Friend of Another" at the now-closed Forum of the Internet site of Centennial Precious Metals in Denver,, and now elaborated upon at an Internet blog by still another anonymous market watcher, "Friend of Friend of Another."

FOFOA's latest elaboration, titled "Checkmate," summarizes and quotes extensively from the "Another" and "Friend of Another" dialogues and offers his own conclusions. "Checkmate" is recommended not as a hard assertion of what is definitely happening but as an idea of what well may be -- and probably is -- happening, an idea that may illuminate future events.

All that any gold market watcher (or journalist) has to do to confirm or repudiate it is to interrogate a few central bankers about their involvement in the gold market. Their refusal to provide information should be evidence enough of profound suspicion. If sufficient funds ever become available, GATA will sue to extract the information from the United States government's side of the scheme:

In any case, that GATA has had to struggle for more than 13 years to establish among gold market participants and the financial news media the most obvious proposition that Western central banks are both primary and largely surreptitious players in the gold market looks awfully small in light of what is probably happening. Indeed, in light of what is probably happening -- control of the world financial system by an unelected and secretive banking elite -- the planet's supposed democracies themselves look awfully small.
