John Embry to preside at GATA fundraiser with Bob Bishop in Vancouver


10:40a ET Saturday, December 22, 2012

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Sprott Asset Management's chief investment strategist, John Embry, will be master of ceremonies for GATA's fundraising reception with retired newsletter writer Bob Bishop at the conclusion of the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference on Monday, January 21.

Embry, known worldwide for his advocacy of ownership of the monetary metals and the companies that mine them, is a longtime GATA supporter and will be speaking during the Vancouver conference as well.

Bishop, retired editor of the Gold Mining Stock Report newsletter, spoke at GATA's Washington conference in 2008 and his expertise long has been sought by thousands in the precious metals sector.

The GATA party will be held in the Cypress Room at the Pan Pacific hotel (a block from the Vancouver Convention Centre West, where the conference is being held) from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, January 21. There will be free snacks and a cash bar, and while there will be no admission charge, it won't be much of a fundraiser if people who attend aren't prepared to help fill your secretary/treasurer's pockets with ever-depreciating fiat currency, bank checks drawn on the same, or monetary metals.

GATA will know how to give value to such donations, as by undertaking new freedom-of-information lawsuits against the U.S. Federal Reserve, Federal Open Market Committee, Treasury Department, and State Department:

Such inquiries by GATA have proven embarrassing for central bank market-rigging operations and enlightening for investors. GATA's first Freedom of Information Act litigation against the Fed, begun in 2009 and concluded in 2011 in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, extracted confirmations that the Fed has secret gold swap arrangements with foreign banks and that the G-10 Gold and Foreign Exchange Committee meets secretly to coordinate gold market rigging:

This month GATA's research obtained a secret International Monetary Fund report showing that Western central banks insist on concealing their gold loans and swaps because transparency would impair their secret market interventions:

With a few million dollars, GATA might be able to tear the central bank gold price suppression scheme apart pretty quickly. With a few hundred thousand dollars, GATA might be able to stay in business for another year, at least keeping a flag flying for the monetary metals, free markets, and accountable and limited government.

Admission to the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference is free for those who register in advance, and the conference has arranged discount rates for attendees at two beautiful hotels next to the convention center, the Pan Pacific and the Fairmont Waterfront.

Vancouver is a spectacularly beautiful and cosmopolitan city, the Vancouver conference is always bustling and informative, and GATA needs your help, so please consider joining us there.

Opinion Around the World Is Changing
in Favor of Gold -- Find Out Why

When Deutschebank calls gold "good money" and paper "bad money". ...

When the president of the German central bank, the Bundesbank, pays tribute to gold as "a timeless classic". ...

When a leading member of the policy committee of the People's Bank of China calls the gold standard "an excellent monetary system". ...

When a CNN reporter writes in The China Post that the "gold commission" plank in the 2012 Republican platform will "reverberate around the world". ...

When the Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy of the U.S. House of Representatives twice called on economist, historian, and gold standard advocate Lewis E. Lehrman to testify. ...

World opinion is changing in favor of gold.

How can you learn why and what it will mean to you?

Read the newly updated and expanded edition of Lehrman's book, "The True Gold Standard."

Financial journalist James Grant says of "The True Gold Standard": "If you have ever wondered how the world can get from here to there -- from the chaos of depreciating paper to a convertible currency worthy of our children and our grandchildren -- wonder no more. The answer, brilliantly expounded, is between these covers. America has long needed a modern Alexander Hamilton. In Lewis E. Lehrman she has finally found him."
