Beck referenced a report from Zero Hedge indicating the initial gold returned to Germany by the United States “didn’t have the stamp on it.” The Federal Reserve reportedly said it had to melt down the gold for transport.
But one other explanation, Beck noted, could be that the Federal Reserve has already used or sold Germany’s gold, and is now scrambling to replace it.
“You melted it down years ago,” Beck said, returning to his analogy. “…And now when I ask for my wedding ring back, you send me somebody else’s wedding ring. You went out and bought a wedding ring. Yes it’s gold – gold is gold – but what is it you’re doing?”
