We beat the Fed and you can put the framed proof on your wall


5p ET Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

To raise a little money for our next spear charge at a central banking windmill, GATA is selling a limited number of framed sets of the documents that concluded our successful lawsuit against the Federal Reserve this year.

The sets are lavishly framed, using museum glass, and are identical to the ones presented this month at GATA's Gold Rush 2011 conference in London to GATA benefactors Eric Sprott and Sasan Sadegpour, shown, to the left and right, respectively, of your secretary/treasurer in this photograph taken at the conference by Maryanne Russell:


A close view of the frame and the documents is here:


You'll see a declaration signed by the four members of GATA's Board of Directors -- William J. Murphy III, Ed Steer, Adrian Douglas, and your secretary/treasurer -- reading, "Don't fight the Fed? Who says? Not us!" Then there are a copy of the letter from the Federal Reserve lawyer conveying to GATA a check for $2,870 for legal costs, and a copy of the check itself.

Information about the lawsuit can be found here:


The framed sets are priced at $2,000 each, which will cover shipping in the continental United States. There may be an additional charge for shipping elsewhere. For contributions of $20,000, GATA Chairman Bill Murphy will deliver your framed set personally. For contributions of $30,000 he won't stay very long.

You can order via e-mail to your secretary/treasurer at CPowell@GATA.org. Please include your shipping address and telephone number.

Payment information is here:

Lewis E. Lehrman on How to Solve the U.S. Debt Problem

Lewis E. Lehrman, chairman of the Lehrman Institute, sponsor of The Gold Standard Now project, advises that to reduce the $1 1/2 trillion U.S. deficit, the Republican Party must initiate an investment program.

Working Americans are not saving, which enables the banks to lead the country into a cycle of debt, leverage, boom, panic, and bust.

Lehrman says: Eliminating the budget deficit of a trillion and a half dollars cannot be done overnight. The proposal by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan was very dramatic -- one Republican called it radical -- but it was not happily received. The solution, of course, is to design an American program for prosperity, because you can solve these entitlement problems with a growing economy. We need a tremendous program of investment, and investment comes from savings. When you pay savers, middle-income professionals, and working people 0 percent at the bank, you are not going to encourage them to save. Then we are left with a bank cycle of debt, leverage, boom, panic, and bust."

Sona Drills 85.4g Gold/Ton Over 4 Metres at Elizabeth Gold Deposit,
Extending the Mineralization of the Southwest Vein on the Property

Company Press Release, October 27, 2010

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Sona Resources Corp. reports on five drillling holes in the third round of assay results from the recently completed drill program at its 100 percent-owned Elizabeth Gold Deposit Property in the Lillooet Mining District of southern British Columbia. Highlights from the diamond drilling include:

-- Hole E10-66 intersected 17.4g gold/ton over 1.54 metres.

-- Hole E10-67 intersected 96.4g gold/ton over 2.5 metres, including one assay interval of 383g of gold/ton over 0.5 metres.

-- Hole E10-69 intersected 85.4g gold/ton over 4.03 metres, including one assay interval of 230g gold/ton over 1 metre.

Four drill holes, E10-66 to E10-69, targeted the southwestern end of the Southwest Vein, and three of the holes have expanded the mineralized zone in that direction. The Southwest Vein gold mineralization has now been intersected over a strike length of 325 metres, with the deepest hole drilled less than 200 metres from surface.

"The assay results from the Southwest Zone quartz vein continue to be extremely positive," says John P. Thompson, Sona's president and CEO. "We are expanding the Southwest Vein, and this high-grade gold mineralization remains wide open down dip and along strike to the southwest."
