I thought that you would want to know, Phazer, the ultimate source of your information.
There was always something curious in what you wrote, since your blog references were all dated within the last two or three years. For the disagreement between Germany and the US to which you refer was resolved in 2012 or 2013. Even your single credible source, Business Insider, acknowledges that the dispute ended back then. So why are your bloggers still transfixed by a horse that was beaten to death so many years ago?
The answer, it transpires, is that Russia is the ultimate source of the rumors--including your contention that the US sold Germany's gold and then frantically bought new gold to replace it when Berlin demanded. Why would Russia do that? Why would the Kremlin plant false stories whose effect is to drive wedges between the US and its Western European allies in the same period as its interference in the US and Brexit referenda?
To ask the question is to answer it. What is unfortunate is the willingness, the eagerness, of gullible bloggers to transmit Russia's disinformation without bothering to check the facts. But then again, why would anyone take such renowned financial analysts as Knave Dave, ammodotcom, Sprott Money, and derailedcapitalism seriously?https://sputniknews.com/business/201702111050571970-us-germany-gold-repatriation/https://www.cnbc.com/2017/02/14/germany-has-got-its-gold-back--they-must-know-something-we-dont.html
