Mnuchin and McConnell went to see the nation's gold at Fort Knox, but why wasn't the other Kentucky Senator Rand Paul invited

For over half a century Fort Knox, KY has been the supposed home to the country's gold supply.  And just a few days ago Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell met up with Trump's Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin for a unannounced visit to check out the depository.


And as we noted a day ago here in an article, Mnuchin never actually verified that all the gold was at Fort Knox, but instead he simply made a cryptic remark that our gold was 'safe'.

With Congress out on summer recess right now, it is understandable that lawmakers from Kentucky might join up with Secretary Mnuchin on this relatively historic visit to Fort Know, especially since no head of the nation's financial division had done so in over 60 years.

However the real question that has to be asked is why the other Kentucky Senator Rand Paul wasn't invited, or didn't attend, seeing as he has long been outspoken on the validity of our gold supply, and in the central bank's control over it.

Paul, a longtime critic of the Federal Reserve and U.S. monetary policy, said he believes it's "a possibility" that there might not actually be any gold in the vaults of Fort Knox or the New York Federal Reserve bank. 
The libertarian lawmaker told Kitco News, a website tracking news about precious metals, that an audit was necessary to determine how much the U.S. maintains in gold reserves in case the government were to use gold to back the dollar. 
“If there was no question about the gold being there, you think they would be anxious to prove gold is there,” he said.   
“Our Federal Reserve admits to nothing, and they should prove all the gold is there. There is a reason to be suspicious and even if you are not suspicious why wouldn’t you have an audit? 
“I think it is a possibility," Paul said when asked if there was truth to rumors that there was actually no gold at Ft. Knox or the New York Fed. – The Hill
Too bad Mnuchin and McConnell weren't both from the state of Missouri, because if that were the case perhaps they would 'Show Me' and the rest of America, some of that gold.

But hey, there are going to be a lot more replica watches Daytonas around for me when people drop them for the new one so I not complaining. I know many that can buy these watches like rolex replica sale but you talking about the folks that are perhaps watches store generation elites that spend money like that, or perhaps the one hit start up wonders that make it rich. Either way you not completely wrong but even the uber rich are spend like that, it probably the reason they are wealthy in the first place. If the replica watches sale is a fraud and rolex should be taken down with extreme prejudice. That is like one of those shocking days in the world when every few years when they have a significant anniversay and they do all the interviews. The rado replica gets high marks from me for having a well proportioned case. Thin and wearable uncommon for a modern mechanical chronograph. Let them run a site see how difficult fake rolex sale can be to keep the content flowing, how much of your own time is spent on keeping the site up and running and keep everyone happy.
