This is the Dr. Beter AUDIO LETTER(R) (1980 current address:
Suite 5092--1629 K St., NW, Washington, D.C. 20006)

Hello, my friends, this is Dr. Beter. Today is July 15,
1975, and this is my monthly AUDIO LETTER(R) No. 2.

As I say these words, the United States of America stands on
the threshold of troubled and turbulent events. The scheming
plans of the Rockefeller dynasty to seize total control of
America are about to enter the critical period of economic
disaster which they have deliberately planned and brought about,
and they intend to turn the resultant political turmoil to their
own advantage. The political and economic chaos which David
Rockefeller confidently predicted a year ago, will soon be upon

The incredibly powerful Rockefeller dynasty--controlled by
David Rockefeller and his brothers Nelson, John D. III, and
Laurance--is still on track with the plan to take over America
completely and replace our Constitution with a dictatorial new
one, which has quietly been written for their use. I revealed
this basic design in my AUDIO BOOK tape of October 1974 about the
coming depression and war, and explained it in detail in my AUDIO
BOOK of March 1975 about the Fort Knox Gold Scandal.

But, my friends, there is a hopeful new wild card in the deck
which has just recently started gaining momentum. I refer to the
fact that opposition is beginning to arise where there was no
effective opposition before--and for the very first time. The
Four Rockefeller Brothers are beginning to lose their grip here
and there on important parts of their fantastically complicated
program of conquest. Their vast pyramid of power is still
basically intact, and they remain very much at the top of it, but
little cracks and seams have begun to show up caused by the
pressure of exposure of their plans. This is only the beginning,
my friends, and we dare not leap to conclusions or relax and
become complacent. Even if their dangerous monopolistic power
should be broken and our beloved Republic saved, we the American
people must take care that we do not go back to sleep and let
someone else do the same thing all over again.

In light of what I have just said, I would like to discuss the
following three topics today:




In recording this today, July 15, 1975, I am making this crucial
information public for the first time anywhere.

Topic #1--Indications that the Rockefeller Brothers have begun
losing their grip on things, began some months ago in connection
with their efforts to suppress the Fort Knox Gold Scandal, and I
mentioned this in my AUDIO BOOK on that subject. But only very
recently, within the past several weeks, this situation has
started spreading dramatically. Even their own grip on the major
media has begun to loosen, and things are starting to leak out
now that would have been unthinkable only a year ago.

A prominent example is the New York Times. Columnist Seymour
Hersh recently dared to write a stinging attack on the
Rockefellers' private detective agency, the CIA, and the Times
dared to print it. In another instance, the Times has recently
focused attention on the fact that the White House refused to
accept Russian dissident exile Alexander Solzhenitsyn because it
might not square well with the official policy of detente--that
is, appeasement of the Soviet Union. Furthermore, the Times
published at length from a speech in which Solzhenitsyn attacked
Russian Communism in blistering terms. As another example: just
a few days ago the New York Times ran an article on the front
page which not long ago would have been lucky to show up as an
abbreviated filler on about page 67. The item dealt with
testimony before the United States Senate in which Exxon, the
most visibly under Rockefeller control of all the hundreds of
huge companies they own, admitted making political gifts to the
Italian Communists, whose recent big gains in Italy you have no
doubt noticed.

The New York Times is only one example. There are stirrings
of independence among some of the other major media as well. It
is a hopeful sign. Another recent symptom of the developing
turning of the tide was a non-event: the abject failure of Nelson
Rockefeller to make good on his plan to oust Gerald Ford and
replace him as President by June 1975, which was last month. As
of the date of this recording, in fact, he has been pointedly
omitted from the now official presidential campaign of Gerald
Ford. What is more, President Ford now appears hale and hardy,
and I can now inform you that he has been successfully cured of a
powerful virus of unknown origin which caused his widely
publicized difficulties last month abroad.

Rockefeller's failure up till now to grab the presidency does
not guarantee that it won't still happen, but it does reflect
some important reversals, and time is now beginning to run
against him. The plan is still essentially on track, but it is
beginning to fall behind schedule.

One of the recent reversals was precipitated by Nelson
Rockefeller himself several months ago during Senate debate over
the filibuster rule. Presiding over the Senate, Rockefeller
flaunted time-honored procedures--steamrollered right over
everyone who got in his way, and caused a near revolt on the
floor of the Senate. In the melee, one of the Senators shouted,
"You do not own this Body." He should have added "not yet",
because that is exactly what Nelson Rockefeller has been
expecting to do soon through his "New Constitution", under which
he would be in power to abolish Congress and then reconstruct it
with his own appointees and others manipulated into office.

The filibuster flap has caused at least some of those in the
Senate to start gradually coming to their senses--not so much out
of their great dedication to representing the wishes of the
people, which they ignored when they voted overwhelmingly to
confirm him as Vice-President in December 1974--but out of fear
of what he might do. Even former Senator Sam Ervin, who seems to
see now that he was used as a pawn in the Watergate affair, has
had second thoughts. He recently said in a radio interview that
had he known last fall what he knows now, he would never have
voted to confirm Nelson Rockefeller as Vice-President.

Another fact which is throwing off the dynasty's timing is the
Fort Knox Gold Scandal. Even though it is still under wraps so
far as the American mass media are concerned, it dealt the
Rockefeller interests a staggering blow last month, June 1975.
Speaking through the United States Treasury, David Rockefeller
expected to persuade the IMF (International Monetary Fund) to
sell its gold hoard, and the Rockefeller interests were poised to
buy it secretly, thereby completing their world-wide corner on
gold. To depress gold prices so that they could then buy the IMF
gold at bargain basement rates, arrangements were made for the
United States Treasury to sell off another pittance of gold on
June 30, 1975, in a so-called Dutch auction. Under this
arrangement all successful bidders buy at the same price as the
lowest successful bid. Many financial articles have pointed out
that this curious set-up was a prescription for pushing down gold
prices, and that the Treasury has for some time been campaigning
to do just that. Now you know why.

The June 30 gold auction was held as scheduled, but it did the
Rockefellers no good. The reason: at the IMF meeting in June
they failed to get the IMF agreement to sell its gold--and for
only one reason. The French Government, through its own
Intelligence sources, has now been able to confirm my charges
that America is gold poor. They know that the United States does
not have the huge gold hoard which is officially claimed, and
therefore that the Treasury threat to use it to hold gold prices
down is a gigantic bluff. Therefore they refused to play
ball--that is, the French--and now the Rockefellers are
feverishly seeking a way through accommodation or pressure, to
remove the French obstacle to their gold corner. In the
meantime, they will try to hold the price of gold down and the
dollar up. All of this is also helping to delay Nelson
Rockefeller's seizure of the presidency of the United States.

Still another factor has to do with Nelson Rockefeller's
recent sudden trip to England. You probably heard about it in
news reports that claimed it was merely a vacation but was not
announced up to the last minute for security reasons. That, my
friends, is not the truth. Nelson Rockefeller was summoned to
England in no uncertain terms by the British Government. They
are now becoming increasingly aware of the role the Rockefeller
empire has played in Britain's economic strangulation since World
War II, and was invited to come there for discussions and
negotiations that were less than cordial. It involved economic
and financial matters.

As a final example of the way in which Rockefeller plans are
beginning to go awry, there is the matter of President Ford's
visit to Spain during his overseas trip six weeks ago. If you
listen to the news closely, you may have noticed that while Ford
and Kissinger were mentioned as visiting other leaders, they only
mentioned that Ford went to see President Franco of Spain. It
was not generally emphasized, but Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger did not accompany Ford to see the Generalissimo. The
reason is that Franco sent a very blunt message forbidding
Kissinger from coming with President Ford. Franco is well aware
that the coup a year ago in neighboring Portugal was engineered
by the CIA on behalf of the Rockefellers, who are greedy for
control of the resource-rich Portuguese colonies in Africa and
the gold which the Portuguese Government held in its national
treasury. And he also knows Henry Kissinger's central role in
the Rockefeller CIA apparatus. What Franco had to say was,
therefore, only for Ford to hear.

Franco's message to President Ford was clear and blunt.
First, the United States must immediately withdraw the CIA
operatives, who are now trying to destroy Spain as they did
Portugal, or the United States will be expelled from all of our
military bases on Spanish soil. Furthermore, Franco said that if
the United States does not put a stop to the internal subversion
which is making America an unreliable ally, Franco would soon be
required to make America leave the bases anyway.

Thus Nelson Rockefeller and his brothers can no doubt sense
that in a number of areas they are indeed beginning to lose their
grip. Even the Portuguese coup d'etat, which the CIA and others
worked 10 years to bring about, has not yet produced all the
planned results in that the prize African colonies apparently
have gotten out of their control. And the kingpin of their
economic war to take over America, the theft of our gold as part
of a world-wide gold corner, threatens increasingly to erupt in
their own faces as a scandal of mind-boggling proportions.

Yes, a hopeful new eleventh-hour trend is now beginning in
opposition to the dictatorial plans of the Rockefeller Brothers.
But, if anything, we must increase our vigilance now in at least
one respect. The danger is always present that seeing the walls
beginning to close in around them, Nelson Rockefeller and his
brothers may at some point, quote: "Hit the panic button" and try
to hurry things up before they can be stopped by an increasingly
aroused American public.

In this connection, I now turn to Topic #2.

Topic #2--In recent days I have received very reliable
information from certain confidential sources that a highly
secret domestic military operation is now underway within the
United States with the code name "OPERATION GARDEN PLOT."

About six months ago large shipments of so-called "riot
control equipment" suddenly began being funneled to key American
cities. Among the cities included are San Francisco, Chicago,
Houston, Dallas, Philadelphia, Detroit, and St. Louis among other
cities. As of now, however, Boston, New York City, and
Washington, D.C., are not involved.

These shipments are reportedly in preparation for
"Unemployment Riots" which are anticipated, possibly by early
autumn. Apparently these will be no ordinary riots though. All
kinds of up-to-date heavy riot-control gear are included--such as
sawed-off shotguns, face shields, helmets, gas masks, flak
jackets, night-sticks, and gas dispensers.

But in addition, the shipments include "war materiel" such as
M-60 machine-guns, 50-caliber machine-guns, M-16 automatic
rifles, jeeps, trucks, and five kinds of army tanks--M-48, M-110,
M-109, PC-113, and PC-577. You may well have seen tanks and
other equipment being shipped by rail recently without knowing
its possible purpose.

Should unemployment riots in fact erupt--whether naturally or
at the instigation of paid troublemakers--and if they can be
escalated to such a level as to call for the declaration of a
"state of emergency" by the President, it could prove to be a
domestic Pearl Harbor attack on the American people by the
Rockefeller dynasty. Executive Order 11490 signed by President
Nixon in 1969 could be invoked, martial law declared, and
virtually dictatorial powers seized overnight.

Whether or not this is the meaning of OPERATION GARDEN PLOT, I
frankly do not yet know, but the dangers are sufficiently real
that I want you, the American people, to realize what could be
the outcome if the threatened unemployment riots do materialize.

"But wait a minute", you may be saying. "Unemployment went
down in June, didn't it?--9.2% in May, 8.6% in June, and everyone
says an upturn has begun. Just look at the stock market."

No, my friends, unemployment is not getting better--it is
getting worse. You may recall that the Bureau of Labor
Statistics commented that the seeming drop in unemployment was
caused by a, quote, "statistical quirk." The real story is not
being told at all--but it is hinted at by some other numbers you
may not have paid much attention to. For example: The number of
jobless persons jumped by one-million in June. It was
7.6-million in May, 8.6-million in June based on published
figures, and the number of people who are so discouraged that
they have given up on finding a job set a new record of
1.2-million in June--again based just on the published figures.

As for the stock market, the manipulation of which is one of
Laurance Rockefeller's specialties, the present upward trend is
strictly artificial. Even the Rockefellers themselves are now
rapidly bailing out. Many of their controlled companies are now
soaking up cash in return for stocks, bonds, and debentures that
will become practically worthless after they let the stock market
crash. They can, and do, change their plans whenever they are
spotlighted; but as of now, their schedule calls for America to
be stunned by a devastating stock market crash in the very near

As in 1929, its effects will reverberate through the entire
world. Even if they should decide to put it off, the crash is
now only a matter of time. If you choose to remain in the stock
market any longer without the benefit of extremely well-informed
advice, you must realize that you will be gambling--not

On top of all these things, INFLATION is now being rekindled
with a vengeance, as will become all too apparent in the months

The stage is also being set for major, deliberate SHORTAGES.
The new wheat deal with Russia, which could amount to nearly 100
pounds of wheat for every man, woman, and child in America is one
harbinger of this, but centralized control of all major marketing
and distribution systems for food and other necessities, is the
real key. And so, my friends, unemployment riots are possible no
matter how unlikely they may seem to you now. "America, the land
of plenty" will soon see loss of jobs, rising prices, and
shortages--all artificial and deliberate--and the result will be
HUNGER. And hunger, my friends, is the most powerful and
destructive political tool of all!

And now, Topic #3.

Topic #3--In a moment, my friends, I intend to lay bare part of
the story of the way in which our gold was stolen from Fort Knox.
But before I do, I want to remind you of why I am doing it. As I
explained in my AUDIO BOOK on the FORT KNOX GOLD SCANDAL, the
theft of the nation's gold was an economic Pearl Harbor
perpetrated on the American people by the Rockefeller dynasty in
their drive to seize total control of America. As Lenin said,
"The only way to destroy Capitalism is to debauch their
currency"--that is, to reduce it to worthless paper. And that is
exactly what has been done to the United States dollar by the
theft of our gold supplies.

Even though the average citizen might never know about it,
this disappearance of a nation's gold reserve does become known
in the powerful world financial circles where national economies
are shaped, and the result is always economic disaster for the
gold-poor country where money ceases to be trusted.

All we have now is fiat money--pieces of paper that are only
playing the role of money because the Rockefeller-owned Federal
Reserve System says it is money. They can have more printed at
will since it is no longer tied in any way to gold or anything
else of generally accepted value. Over a period of several
thousand years, my friends, people have from time to time tried
fiat money over and over again. The propaganda you hear today
from the Treasury and elsewhere that would lead you to believe
otherwise, is pure hogwash; and every single time the result has
been economic disaster and disintegration for the very people who
tried it. This is why I keep hammering away at the Fort Knox
Gold Scandal. It is not only the most stupendous theft in all of
history, though it is that too.

David Rockefeller and his brothers expect to make a
half-trillion-dollar profit on their gold corner by the time gold
reaches $2,000 an ounce less than two years from now. What is
more important is that if we do not get the gold back now and
restore a sound footing for our dollar, we will go the way of
every other nation. And history has shown that anyone who has
relied on fiat money will lose, and the Rockefellers intend to
pick up the pieces.

With that background, I just want to read you an affidavit
which was obtained by one of my associates from former
Congressman Frank Chelf of Kentucky. We have distributed this
affidavit to many influential people as part of our effort to pry
the lid off the Scandal, and recently it was published in part by
various financial Newsletter writers which penetrate financial
circles world-wide. This affidavit is as follows:

" A F F I D A V I T
State of Kentucky, County of Marion

I, Frank Chelf, of 216 East Main St., Lebanon, Kentucky 40033,
being first duly sworn on oath, hereby depose and say:

(1) That I was a United States Congressman from the 4th
Congressional District of Kentucky for 22 years, ending January
3, 1967.

(2) I have always felt that the gold supporting our currency is
a vital component of our economy and should not have been sent
abroad nor anywhere else. We are giving money we do not have to
people we do not know in order to please people who hate our

(3) In August 1963 I charged that the United States Government
was moving gold quietly as a church mouse out of Fort Knox, and
that the gold was constantly and surreptitiously on the move.

(4) I learned of the Fort Knox gold shipments from my civilian
friends in my native County of Hardin.

(5) In January 1965 I made a new request for information
regarding gold shipments out of the Government's storage vaults
at Fort Knox. I sent this request to President Johnson in a
telegram. Fort Knox is located in my 4th Congressional District.

In response to my previous requests for gold removal
information, Treasury officials had been courteous and most
friendly, but always noncommittal or evasive. As a member who
had entered into his 11th term in Congress, I felt I had the
right to question those Treasury appointees who have to do with
our gold in Fort Knox in order to ascertain the figures of the
gold supply of the United States. I believe the press and all
American citizens are entitled to know the facts pertaining to
our gold shipments.

(6) I retired from Congress after 22 years of uninterrupted
service, but I was interested in the United States gold supply
because most of it was stored in my Congressional District.

The Government was taking gold out by twilight in trucks,
and I accused them of it and proved it on them because I had
people who were posted who are friends of mine. They were
telling me in the Treasury that they were not taking the gold
out, but I had friends who told me the hour and the minute when
they'll come out for another load. Oh yes, they've taken a lot
of gold out of there they won't admit. It's terrible.


Subscribed and sworn to before me this 7th day of April 1975."

And there follows the seal and the signature of the Notary
Public, Dessie Kessler, the Notary Public in and for that County
of Marion.

The recent final emptying of Fort Knox, you see, was not an
isolated GOLD FINGER-style heist, nor was it remotely similar to
any of the other ridiculous gold theft movies you may have seen
lately. It was simply the final phase of a very long-term
project culminating nearly 15 years of gold removal from America.
The hemorrhage of America's gold was begun in 1961 with the
initiation of the so-called "London Gold Pool Agreement", but the
stage was set for all of this over 30 years ago during World War

What I am about to tell you is more of the FORT KNOX GOLD
SCANDAL than has ever been revealed before. Every bit of it is
backed up by solid evidence and information from reliable
confidential sources. I stand ready to present all of my
evidence, including authoritative witnesses who will testify
under oath.

Over a year ago I publicly challenged the Government to test
my charges in court, and offered to go to jail as a rabble rouser
if I could not back up my charges. Their only public response
was to stage the so-called "Fort Knox Gold Inspection Visit" on
September 23, 1974--and that, too, was a total fraud as you are
about to hear. The time has come to make these things public
because we have now exhausted our administrative remedies. If
you are not a lawyer, you may not realize that you cannot simply
walk into court and sue someone at will, especially if that
someone is the United States Government. You must establish that
you at least have a valid basis for going to court, or the court
will not hear the case. The purpose of this is to prevent abuse
of the courts through frivolous lawsuits, suits for harassment,

In the case of the federal government, suit cannot be brought
until you have exhausted your administrative remedies. This is
the general rule--that is, until you have given the appropriate
agencies of the federal government an opportunity to redress your
grievances. This we have now done. We have now gone to
Congress, we have gone to the Treasury, we have gone to the
Justice Department, we have gone to the General Accounting Office
(GAO), and we have gone to the top of this Administrative
Accounting Office, the Comptroller General of the United States.
We have corresponded and we have held meetings, we have
petitioned, we have pressured, we have asked for answers--and we
have received silence, evasions, and half truths. We have given
information, and it has not been used. We have explored every
avenue available to us for more than a year; and, my friends, the
FORT KNOX GOLD SCANDAL has not been cleared up in any way--just
the opposite.

To give just one example. There is an official document
obtained by us from the United States Mint with great difficulty
30, 1974."

Based on our own strictly confidential information, and with
pictures, we were able recently to ask the following question of
the United States Mint under circumstances in which they were
under great pressure to give us a reply. Our question was,

"What was shipped in the four tractor-trailer loads on January
20, 1965, from Fort Knox to railroad yards across the river to
Jeffersonville, Indiana?"

This shipment does not show, my friends, on the official listing
I named a moment ago, yet here is the astonishing answer
contained in the letter from Mrs. Mary Brooks, the Director of
the United States Mint, dated June 19, 1975, and I quote:

"On January 20, 1965, 1,762,381.353-fine ounces of gold from
the Fort Knox Bullion Depository was shipped by way of rail from
Jeffersonville, Indiana, to the United States Assay Office, New
York, New York."

There is no explanation as to why this nearly 2-million-ounce
shipment does not appear on the official listing, but this
violent conflict among their own statements is only typical of
the entire Fort Knox fiasco.

A year ago, the Chairman of the privately-owned Federal
Reserve System, Dr. Arthur Burns, admitted in a letter to
Congressman John Rarick that the assets of the Federal Reserve do
not include gold; and yet, at the same time, official statements
of the Federal Reserve did list gold as a prime asset, and they
still do today. This discrepancy has never been cleared up,
Congress taking a ho-hum attitude about it all. The only
concrete result so far is that Congressman Rarick, who had been
very popular with his constituents, was washed out of office last
November with a sea of Rockefeller campaign funds which went to
all of his opponents! It so happens that the aforementioned
private owners of the Federal Reserve System are the Rockefeller
interests, and they react very vigorously whenever anyone dares
to poke around at this keystone of their economic empire.

Yes, the time has come to go to court, and while I must still
save my actual evidence for court, the time has come to let
you--the American people, the jury--on exactly what has been
done, and how.

The foundations were laid for the FORT KNOX GOLD SCANDAL
during World War II when extensive hush-hush modifications were
made to the Fort Knox Gold Depository. Originally the Fort Knox
Gold Depository building was designed around a huge vault with
two levels, the ground floor and the basement. One entered the
building through the front entrance you have probably seen often
in pictures, passed through a vestibule, and found himself in a
corridor running to left and right. This same corridor went all
the way around the building on all four sides of the huge vault.
To reach the vault door, one would enter the building at the
front entrance, follow the corridor to the right, and then
continue on around the corner and along the right side of the
building. Part way down this corridor one would come to the
vault door, which was on the left or inner side of the corridor.
On entering through the vault door, one found himself in another
corridor inside the vault. Fronting on this corridor were a
series of storage compartments about the size of jail cells (I
call them bird cages) but with solid metal doors with individual
locks on them. These cells or compartments were arranged in a
sort of cellblock with the vault corridor passing all the way
around it. That is, one could head off down this corridor inside
the vault, walk around a center cellblock with compartment doors
facing onto the corridor on all four sides, and finally wind up
where he started. There were 20 of these jail-cell-like storage
compartments inside the vault on the first floor of the vault.
There were also stairs with which one could walk down to the
basement level of the vault; and the arrangement at the basement
level was the same--a square cellblock of 20 compartments
fronting on a corridor which went all the way around.

What I have tried to describe so far was the main or Outer
Vault, however it was not where the gold was kept. These small
compartments, 40 in all, were for the storage of all sorts of
other things--secret documents, precious metals other than gold,
and a variety of other things.

But these were not where the gold was kept--instead, there was
a sort of vault-within-a-vault known as the "Central Core Vault",
which was reserved strictly for the storage of gold. Access to
the Central Core Vault, which was located centrally and below
ground, could only be obtained from a point at the basement level
inside the Outer Vault structure I have described. Moving gold
in and out of the Central Core Vault was, therefore, a relatively
slow and tedious process.

But in the 1942-43 time period, major modifications were made
to the Fort Knox vault structure under the direction of a
mechanical engineer named Stanley Tatom, who was serving as an
Army Major at that time. A rapid retrieval system for the gold
was built in the rear of the Depository building where there are
a pair of huge doors into which trucks can back for loading and

First, the six bird-cage compartments running along the rear
of the Outer Vault on each floor were deleted. The vault
corridors, which had formerly gone all the way around the
cellblock on each floor, were then walled off where the row of
compartments along the rear had been deleted. Thus the vault
corridors no longer went all the way around, but now formed a "U"
configuration with the base of the "U" turned toward the front of
the Depository building. By lopping off the rear portion of the
Outer Vault in this manner, space was created in the rear to
accommodate the rapid retrieval system. In this space, in the
center adjacent to the truck doors, was installed a powerful
screw-type elevator passing from the ground floor down and to the
level of the Central Core Vault into which the elevator gave
access. At the top of the elevator--that is, at the ground level
in the rear of the Depository building, a massive vault door was
installed. In effect, this vault door serves as nothing but a
very elaborate elevator door since the only thing you can enter
in, when you open it, is the elevator which then takes you down
to the Central Core Vault where all gold is supposed to be

Finally, the original access to the Central Core Vault from a
location in the two-level main vault where the compartments are,
was deleted. The building's interior walls and decor were then
restored to something like their original appearance.

But now, thanks to the secret modifications, there is no
longer a vault-within-a-vault arrangement. Instead, there are
now two separate and independent vaults. One is a vault with all
the jail-cell-like compartments in it, which was shown to the
visitors last September. The other vault, which cannot be
reached from within the vault the visitors saw, is the gold
vault, the Central Core Vault, which can be reached only by the
elevator in the rear of the building.

The compartments in the vault shown to the visitors were never
intended for storage of gold; and, my friends, what the visitors
saw last September were not gold bars--not even junk gold! It
has now been confirmed to my satisfaction that what was seen by
the visitors is a commodity known as "show gold"--lead bars
covered with a layer of gold that is just thick enough to stand
up under handling. This even helps explain the high alloy
content responsible for the strange redness which many of the
visitors last September noticed. Pure gold is extremely soft,
and a thin layer over lead could all too easily be damaged and
reveal the lead underneath. Highly alloyed gold--that is, impure
gold--was therefore used that it would withstand handling. Thus
they saw "junk gold" all right, but it wasn't even junk gold all
the way through!

The visitors of Fort Knox last September of course had no way
of knowing that there are two vaults, and no one told them. They
were led to believe that the vault they entered with all the
compartments was The Vault, and the Treasury had seen to it that
none of the invited visitors were experts on gold, much less on
the mysterious legendary place known as "Fort Knox."

The closest brush that the visitors had with stumbling onto
the truth came when a reporter asked Mrs. Mary Brooks, the
Director of the Mint, why the compartments were numbered in such
a curious fashion--1 to 14 on one floor, and 21 to 34 on the
other. Mrs. Brooks helpfully replied that she didn't know.
Well, Mary, if you haven't figured it out by now, I'll tell you.
The missing numbers--15 to 20 and 35 to 40--are those of the
cells that were deleted in the secret modifications during the
1942-43 time period.

After the wartime modifications to Fort Knox were made, over
10 years were allowed to pass before the next major step in 1954.
At that time a super-secret complete inventory was taken of the
Fort Knox gold. This was not the same as a relatively cursory
audit, so-called, of the gold which was done in 1953. The
project in 1954 involved a complete count with weighing and assay
sampling of all the gold there--about three-quarters of a million
400-ounce bars worth a total of 12-billion dollars
($12,000,000,000) at that time, and that was at the old price of
$35 per ounce. That's twice as much as the Treasury ever claims
to have now, and even these claims are complete lies. In
addition to all the weighing, counting, and checking against
records, the 1954 inventory included the extraction of a plug of
gold from every one-hundredth bar for assaying, and these samples
were sent to Assay Offices all around the country to minimize the
chance of any collusion to falsify the results. This seemingly
enormous job was kept completely secret, and was completed in
only nine weeks. All of the gold was, of course, in the Central
Core Vault at that time--none was in the bird-cage compartments.

The contrast with the so-called GAO audit of the Fort Knox
gold last fall can hardly be overstated. The alleged gold stock
in 1974 was only half as large, and they can only claim to have
examined about 20% of that. Assay samples were only taken from
only about every thousandth bar--they were not plugged but merely
small chips were taken which could be taken from a corner, say,
without cutting through into the lead underneath. All the 99
samples were sent to a single location, the New York Assay
Office, and only 54 of these have ever been stated to have been
returned--with undefined results.

Finally, the results of the alleged 1974 GAO audit--which was
performed, by the way, by 13 Treasury employees and only two GAO
representatives--have never been published. The closest thing to
it is a ridiculous little document printed in February 1975,
which presents no findings of fact concerning the gold and
timidly says only "We believe" the gold is there!

But returning to the 1954 gold inventory, the question arises:

"Why was it a secret? After all, the law requires an annual
physical inventory of the nation's gold reserves."

This law has been generally circumvented and ignored; but one
would think that when its requirements were satisfied for once,
in 1954, the fact would have been made public. The reason for
the secrecy of the comprehensive 1954 inventory, my friends, is
that its purpose was not that defined by law. Instead, the
Rockefeller interests were simply taking stock of the American
gold reserves which they intended to start spiriting away a few
years later.

In about 1960 after those who had worked on the secret 1954
inventory were safely gone from Fort Knox, the next step was
taken. A system of record-keeping was set up to allegedly keep
track of the gold by means of special ribbon-like metal seals on
the doors of the compartments in the main vault--not where gold
is supposed to be stored at all.

These seals had been in use on these compartments ever since
1937 when the gold was initially stored at Fort Knox. But gold
was never in those compartments, just other things as I mentioned
earlier. Nevertheless, attention was cleverly shifted to the old
Outer Vault with the compartments, as if that was where the gold
was. Seals were put on doors of compartments with gold alleged
to be inside, and these seals were thereafter checked by the
so-called "Annual Settlement Committees" in lieu of actually
opening the locked compartments and checking the contents. Of
course for all any Settlement Committee thereafter really knew,
the compartments could have been empty since there was no way to
see in through the solid door of each compartment. United States
Mint personnel have recently stated, for the record, that the
peephole through which the 1974 Fort Knox visitors peeped into,
an unopened cell was drilled especially for that occasion. Thus
they were at last ready for the looting of America's gold. The
record-keeping system of the United States Mint now reflected
only the status of the compartments in what remained of the
original Outer Vault!

Meanwhile the gold was actually still stored in the completely
independent Central Core Vault, reachable only by means of the
elevator in the rear. And in 1961 the looting began under the
cloak of the London Gold Pool Agreement initiated that year.

Gold began flowing like water out of Fort Knox and the other
Depositories, arousing the concern of Congressman Frank Chelf and
others, but all attempts to stem the tide were brusquely waved
aside by Rockefeller agents within our government. By 1968 this
gold hemorrhage was used as an excuse to set up the two-tier Gold
Market in place of the London Gold Pool. Further details of the
recent events surrounding gold have been given already in my

So here we are--our economy mortally wounded by a scandal
bigger than "Teapot Dome" and "Watergate" combined, and our
government is sitting on it with all the power in its command!

Our great Justice Department refuses even to examine our
evidence about this biggest theft in history--an act of treason
and economic war on the American people. They have more
important things to do, it seems, like finding ways to disarm the
people in violation of the CONSTITUTION they are supposed to
defend. The Treasury Department continues to defraud, mislead,
and lie about their criminal activities. The General Accounting
Office generally refuses to account for anything about our gold
in any meaningful terms. And our elected representatives, with
very few exceptions, have so far found every excuse in the book
to look the other way about the whole thing. Meanwhile Fort Knox
has been completely emptied of its gold, and the American dollar
is about to die, according to Lenin's words.

Therefore, my friends, I continue to appeal to you to make
your collective voices heard and your will felt. I have believed
all along in this fight that the madness that now grips our
government can still be rooted out and our freedom saved; but I
am also convinced that only if you and I do our parts, as
citizens, will this happen. As the toolmaker philosopher Tom
Wilson says:

"We, the people, need to collectively shake our elected
representatives like disobedient children and get them
representing us again, instead of the powerful special interests
dominated by the Rockefellers."

Until next month, my friends, this is Dr. Beter. May God
bless each and every one of you. Thank you.
