Belgium “Adds” Another $40 Billion Of Treasuries – Russia Is The Seller – The Fed Is The Buyer

I would first like to note – in response to anyone who might think that China is a “clandestine” buyer of U.S. Treasuries – that per the latest monthly Government report on “Major Foreign Holders Of Treasury Securities” (report link) China’s holdings of Treasuries during the time period that has been examined has declined.  Also please note that Russia’s have declined by $50 billion since the end of October:

I also want to emphasize one last point, for anyone trying to find evidence of the Fed using dollars to buy the bonds using the Fed’s Flow of Funds Statement or Balance Sheet.  The Fed engaged in a large dollar/euro currency swap facility with the ECB (European Central Bank) a few years ago.  It is highly probably the dollars used to fund Belgium’s account to purchase the bonds were sourced from the ECB, which is why the trade from Russia to the Fed using Belgium as the beard was executed through the Euroclear clearing and settlement system, which just so happens to be domiciled in….Brussels.

  1. There’s also a great complimentry interview to the article PCR did with Greg Hunter on usawatchdog as well. This whole charade is simply mind bending and you can only wonder how much longer the lies and deceit can go on for. Tapering is now Newspeak for incereased bond purchasing.

      Inside the London Estate of a Major League Establishment Crony

      Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild (59) is the chief executive officer of E.L. Rothschild, a holding company she owns with her third husband, Sir Evelyn Robert de Rothschild (82), a member of THE Rothschild family. The company manages investments in The Economist Group, owner of The Economist magazine, Congressional Quarterly and the Economist Intelligence Unit, Weather Central, LP, the world’s largest provider of weather software and data to the broadcast industry, as well as real estate, agricultural and food interests. By virtue of her marriage to a knight, she is known socially as Lady de Rothschild.

      Harper’s Bazar snapped pictures inside the London estate of Lady de Rothschild, here.

      From the profile accompanying the layout:
      Her husband, Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, served as an usher at Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, and later headed the bank that used to help set the price of gold in the world…She sits on the boards of Estée Lauder and the Peterson Institute for International Economics and is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

      But the big date on Lynn’s calendar right now is May 27, when E.L. Rothschild will cohost with Fiona Woolf, the Lord Mayor of London, “The Conference on Inclusive Capitalism,” a high-powered symposium at the Mansion House and Guildhall, with a list of keynote speakers that includes former president Clinton, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde, and the governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney….

      You can’t be friends with Lynn and not know that the woman she most admires is Hillary Clinton.

      It was in 1998 that she met Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, at the Bilderberg Conference in Turnberry, Scotland, when they were introduced by a mutual friend, Henry Kissinger. The couple exchanged vows in London two years later, and were feted back in the States at a wedding party given by Senator Moynihan and his wife, Liz, in a private room at the Capitol, where they were toasted by the Clintons, among others.
