Your Silver Pacifier
“The mainstream media loves to point out how silver is “much more volatile” than gold and is a much riskier investment. Of course they never give reasons as to why a commodity with very, very stable mine production and stable industrial consumption is so volatile. They are hoping that you are not smart enough to ask the important questions…like is the silver market rigged? And if so how is it done, why are they doing it and when will it end?”
“FAIR WARNING…this may shatter your illusions of “Free Markets” and how the world is SUPPOSED to work!”
“So during these times of turmoil in silver it is best to NOT LOOK AT PRICE but COUNT YOUR OUNCES and remember WHY YOU BOUGHT IN THE FIRST PLACE…”
“And then remind yourself WHAT HAS TO HAPPEN BEFORE YOU TO SELL….”
Comex non-inventory non-movements – ‘reduction’ of 11% in ‘available’ silver from the day before (2012-04-03)
“Interestingly gold and silver were bombed one second after the comex closed at 1:30 pm.”
“In both silver and gold volumes are disappearing and this must be very disturbing to the CME.”
“They are now worried that business is flowing elsewhere. What did they expect with a crooked arena in the precious metals arena?”
“we had a dandy of an adjustment;”
“3,104,105.77 adjusted out of a dealer at Brinks and enter the customer account at Brinks.”
“No doubt this must be a settlement of silver owing to a major customer.”
“The dealer inventory rests tonight at 31.531 million oz”
“The total of all silver rests at 138.48 million oz.”
637.5 MILION OUNCES OF PAPER SILVER DUMPED IN 1 HOUR AFTER FED MINUTES RELEASED
“”On the now infamous Ron Paul/ Bernanke silver raid of February 29th, we documented how 225 million ounces of silver were dumped on the market over a span of only 30 minutes, smashing silver $4 from $37.62 to $33.68.”
“In a sign of the diminishing returns of paper market manipulation, on the heels of today’s Fed minutes disappointment, beginning at 2pm EST, over 127,000 contracts, or 637.535 MILLION OUNCES OF PAPER SILVER were dumped on the market in only 1 hour, resulting in a massive silver decline of…. $0.65.”
“You read that correctly.”
“Nearly 80% of ENTIRE ANNUAL WORLD MINING SUPPLY was dumped on the market (during the thinly traded Globex session), over a single hour”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVNj7yroMsY&feature=relmfuUSA’s unPatriot Act has been renamed by some people as the Repeal The Fourth Amendment Requirement For Search Warrants Act.
I do know that King George III of England would allow British troops to write their own search warrants and this was listed by the American colonists among the many reasons for declaring independence from Britain as the experience was that all manner of private property got stolen in epidemics of looting by British troops or to use the euphemism from the MF Global scandal, ‘vaporised’.
The trend we are in is that excrement such as laws like this are first perpetrated in the USA then they are such abominations that they must be inflicted on European nations and perhaps other parts of the world.

Ken Clarke defends ‘secret court cases’ proposals
So let me see if I understand this correctly, increased invasion of everyone’s privacy so rather than being innocent until proven guilty we are all guilty, while government is increasing it’s secrecy so rather than government being incapable of wrong doing the government never does any wrong doing.
You will pardon my language when I ask what is the f**king nonsense ?
What illegal substance was being abused by the public servant who tabled this proposal ?
David Cameron Invokes the Hegelian Dialectic to Enforce Snooping laws
“He has just secured the sale of the NHS and much more we aren’t aware of yet to Goldman Sachs during his “timely” visit to New York.”
“He visits troops in Afghanistan, only to return to the UK to cruelly announce that he is cutting their pay.”
I must have missed this news from the corporate whore media.
Tungsten-Filled 1 Kilo Gold Bar Found In The UK
I think you will find this gold bar partially hollowed out and filled with tungsten (I saved two of the pictures and attached them) is not the only thing that has been hollowed out and filled with s**t.
To be crystal clear, that was not a joke. It is in fact deadly serious matter of what is real and what is fake. I want all of you to think long and hard on that.
I have also attached a picture of the declining content of silver in the coins of ancient Rome.
SOPA changes name to CISPA
Our supposed public servants have got absolutely nothing better to do than pursue legislation that there is no public demand for at all.
PPEC April 2012 Ann Barnhardt explains why – on a lot of things
The advertisements breaking into this video are a pain in the arse.
“Ann Barnhardt speaking on why she pulled a John Galt” high school following the rape of a fellow student and what a male classmate said to hear (which I will not repeat) and the response of the school.
And why the futures brokerage MF Global bankruptcy scandal matters and why the CME not back stopping like when the futures brokerage Refco went bankrupt scandal matters.
And why there is no rule of law and who is destroying the American Republic.
And why the ‘I am my brother’s keeper’ blurb coming out of President Obama matters – if you don’t know who originally said that, it was Cain after murdering his brother Abel.
And why Marxism pits the under class versus the producing class in order that the ruling class can rule for their own benefit matters.
And why the Supreme Court must rule against the known as Obamacare the Patient (Mis-)Protection and (Un-)Affordable Care Act. And why there needs to be a counter coup in response to the coup that has taken place in the USA.
And why the second amendment for possessing firearms matters.
Man Commits Suicide In Broad Daylight On Athens’ Syntagma Square To Protest “Occupation Government”
“The Arabian Spring started after the self-immolation of a 26 year old fruit vendor in Tunisia to protest a life he could no longer live. Will the European Summer set off with a suicide as well? News are crossing that a few hours ago, a 77 year old Greek has killed himself in broad daylight on Athens’ symbolic and inappropriately named Syntagma square to protest the “occupier government” and not wanting to be a burden to his child.”
“the suicides and attempted suicides saw a sharp rise of 22.5% since 2009. A total of 1,727 recorded suicide death and attempted suicide incidents have occurred nationwide since the Greek recession began in 2009.”
“The number of suicides and attempted suicides jumped from 507 in 2009 to 622 in 2010, marking a 22.5 percent increase, and to 598 in the last year up to until December 10, 2011.”
Rather than the liquidation of unsustainable unsecured debt, we are witnessing the horror of human being liquidation.
Syntagma Square Suicide Note Ends With Call To Young Greek People To “Hang The Traitors”
“just like the Italians did to Mussolini in 1945”
“Laos head Yiorgos Karatzaferis noted in Parliament that the bullet that killed the man in Syntagma, also hit the conscience of the Greek political sphere. “This is not just a person that killed himself”, he said. “This event should make us understand that we have all been behind this, we have all pulled the trigger. What did this man see from us, before deciding to take his own life? He saw shady goings-on, he saw none of those that stole from him and the Greek people go to jail.”
I just searched the BBC website for the guy’s name – Dimitris Christoulas. There is no report, he is a non-person in the eyes of our corporate news media unlike, Mohamed Bouazizi, the Tunisian fruit vendor who committed suicide in the Arab Spring of 2011.
5 Outrageous Examples of FBI Intimidation and Entrapmenthttp://www.infowars.com/5-outrageous-examples-of-fbi-intimidation-and-entrapment/
What do you suppose the American people need to do when a law enforcement agency has become as lawless as you are about to read about, no doubt abolish it.
“The FBI got permission to spy on 14,000 people”
“Do they really think there are 14,000 terrorists living in the US?”
“1. FBI’s Use of Warrantless GPS Tracking”
“Given the fact that Americans have a constitutional right to privacy, one might think you have to get a warrant to place a GPS device in a location that can track a suspect 24 hours a day. Yet, in many cases, law enforcement officers are attaching GPS devices without first getting a warrant.”
“In October 2010, 20-year old Arab-American student Yasir Afifi was concerned that he had found a pipe bomb when he noticed a “black, rectangular device” attached to his car. Upon finding the device, he posted photos to Reddit.com hoping someone could tell him what was on his vehicle. A couple days later, FBI agents showed up at his apartment to “retrieve the device.””
“Turns out, the mysterious device resembling a bomb, which had understandably petrified Afifi, was a GPS device.”
An ordinary guy finds a suspicious object on his property put there by the FBI. Have the FBI lost their collective minds ?
“They asked him whether he was a national security threat, whether he was excited about an upcoming (but undisclosed) trip abroad, whether he was having financial difficulties, whether he had been to Yemen, why he traveled overseas, and many other questions.””
“Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Robert Mueller are being sued for violating Afifi’s constitutional rights.”
I would expect nothing else.
“2. FBI Targeting WikiLeaks and Bradley Manning Supporters”
“A press release posted by the Bradley Manning Support Network described how House had his laptop seized and was “questioned extensively” about his support for alleged WikiLeaks whistleblower Bradley Manning. House requested a copy of his research data from the computer that was seized. His request was denied.”
I would have been asking to what criminal acts these questions were pursuant to.
And I would have asked what on what *damn* grounds was this request denied ?
“He described how his friend, who is not involved in computers or activism, was pressured to sign a non-disclosure agreement and was held for four hours after the interrogation. His friend was released after repeated banging on the interrogation room’s door. He had taken notes during the interrogation on “a scrap of magazine paper during his four-hour detention” but was made to surrender his notes before leaving his detention.”
“The friend said that the FBI agents wanted to know what he knew about House, his beliefs and his lifestyle. There were no questions about Manning.”
In this situation I would have been telling them to either charge me with a crime or go look for some criminals.
“The FBI recently subpoenaed House to appear before a federal grand jury empanelled to investigate WikiLeaks in Alexandria, Virginia. He pled the fifth and refused to answer questions on possible violations of the Espionage Act. House also has alleged that agents from various government agencies tried to bribe him for information on Boston-area hackers.”
Seriously ? Law enforcement tried to bribe him ?
“He was not allowed to make a phone call and three mobile phones he was carrying were seized and have yet to be returned.”
These law enforcement officers have opened themselves to lawsuits.
“Appelbaum continues to be detained at US airports. He was detained when returning from a vacation in Iceland on January 10 at the Seattle airport, in a Houston airport when returning from Siberia on April 12 and on June 14, he was subjected to detention without charge when he arrived at the Seattle airport from Iceland.”
“3. FBI Spied on Children While Using ‘Roving Wiretaps,’ Intentionally Misled Courts on Freedom of Information Act Requests”
“the FBI spent a week monitoring children.”
“the FBI managed to keep most of the revelations secret by redacting a significant portion of the documents requested.”
Do you see how secrecy works when it’s about secrecy in government and yet the government wants to know everything about the general public ? Do you see how absolutely f**ked this is ?
“A post by Jennifer Lynch of EFF indicates the US District Court for the Central District of California found “the FBI lied to the court about the existence of records requested” under FOIA.”
“Additionally, according to EFF, the FBI argued it was “allowed to mislead the court when it believed revealing information would ‘compromise national security.’””
Seriously ? The FBI lied to the court ? National security, my arse. Anyone else would be in prison if they lied to the court. Again, do you see how absolutely f**ked this is ?
“As a report published by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice of the New York University School of Law in May and titled, “Targeted and Entrapped: Manufacturing the ‘Homegrown Threat’ in the United States,” describes, “On May 13, 2009, at the FBI’s direction, Hussain drove Cromitie, David, and two others—Laguerre Payen and Onta Williams (no relation to David)—to the Bronx to conduct surveillance on various synagogues. Next he drove them to Connecticut to look at the Stinger missile they were to use. Unbeknownst to David and the others, the weapons were fake and supplied by the FBI.””
“It’s whether it’s appropriate for the government to act in a way where they’re aggrandizing the nature of the threat.”
“Williams and the other men were found guilty in October 2010. In May of this year, a judge denied the defendants’ motions for dismissal “on the basis of outrageous government conduct and entrapment.” The men are currently in the process of being sentenced for their participation in this scheme and prosecutors are pushing for life sentences for three of the four men, including Williams.”
Should we be afraid of such terror plots that the FBI has done all the legwork involved in the plot ? Hell no.
“5. The Criminalization of Travel by the FBI”
“Realizing Parker wanted to talk to her about the trip she took to Israel and Palestine in August, just months ago, she reached out to a lawyer with the National Lawyers Guild.”
““We went on an educational trip in which we met with NGOs, teachers, nonviolent protesters,” explains Smith. “We didn’t meet with anyone who is on any terrorist list. We didn’t give money to anyone that is on a terrorist list. We wanted to see what it was like for ourselves, to live in Israel with Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.””
“Tom Burke is another traveler alleged to have provided “material support to terror.””
“Burke was served with a subpoena to appear before a grand jury. His wife was later served with a subpoena too.”
““We’ve been doing solidarity work with people in other countries who get killed for doing what they do,” Burke explains. “When I went to Colombia in 2003 with a labor union delegation, at that time three Colombian trade unionists were being killed every single week. And that was the scariest week of my life.” Burke was with the human rights director of the oil workers union. All week he had to have armed security, know who was with the group and whether they were in a safe place.”
“Reminiscent of how animal rights and environmental activists have been targeted in recent years, the FBI is going after the activists, wrecking their lives, intimidating Americans who believe in their right to dissent. It is pressing on, widening its investigation despite a growing backlash against the investigation. And some of the activists fear indictments from the investigation may be coming soon.”
Fake terror plots, paid informants: the tactics of FBI ‘entrapment’ questioned
Monsanto’s GMO Seeds Contributing to Farmer Suicides Every 30 Minutes
“In what has been called the single largest wave of recorded suicides in human history, Indian farmers are now killing themselves in record numbers. It has been extensively reported, even in mainstream news, but nothing has been done about the issue. The cause? Monsanto’s cost-inflated and ineffective seeds have been driving farmers to suicide, and is considered to be one of the largest — if not the largest — cause of the quarter of a million farmer suicides over the past 16 years.”
Do we need any further information to draw the conclusion that the Monsanto corporation is a pestilence ?
Medical Madness: Researchers develop genetically-engineered ‘pharm’ goats that PRODUCE VACCINES IN MILK
“Mark Westhusin, a professor at A&M‘s Reproductive Sciences Laboratory, and his colleagues have decided to assume the role of God by altering the genome of goats to artificially produce the malaria parasite.”
Frankenstein has nothing on these researchers. I have heard it mentioned that vaccines and GMO foods are shunned by the certain parts of society.
Lew Rockwell: “Ron Paul already won the election”
“Whether it’s bad guy A or bad guy B who’s the nominee” ?
Doesn’t he mean corporate puppet A or corporate puppet B ?
LIBERTY ALERT: Ron Paul Rally Draws 6,200+ in Chico, California – Media Lies Again

Mitt Romney’s wife had blind trust invested in Goldman Sachs’ sex trafficking fund
I cannot read any of the mealy mouthed excuses the general public are being asked to swallow.
Mike Bloomberg’s New York: Cops in Your Hallway3s
“Mike Bloomberg’s notorious “stop-and-frisk” policy – known colloquially in these parts by silently-cheering white voters as the “Let’s have cops feel up any nonwhite person caught walking in the wrong neighborhood” policy”
This is a divide and conquer tactic, one group is unjustly targeted to the delight of some of the others outside that group but in time the targeting will expand until all groups are targeted. Please wake up to the bulls**t.
“Over the intercom, Ms. Ligon heard a man say that he was a police officer, and he needed her to come down to identify her son. Terrified that J.G. was injured or dead … One officer began laughing” – what an absolute disgrace.
“Mr. Lebron encountered his handcuffed friends and the two police officers in the lobby of his building. He told the officers that he lived in the building and that the teens had been visiting him. The officers responded that it was “too late” and placed the three young men in a police van…. The arresting officers took W.B., J.G., and their friend to the 44th Precinct, where they were locked in a cell. After approximately two hours, they were given summonses for trespassing and released. The trespassing charges against W.B., J.G., and their friend were later dismissed.”
‘Too late’ ? Even more of an absolute disgrace.
Banks Financing Mexico Gangs Admitted in Wells Fargo Deal (Jun 29, 2010)
“Wachovia admitted it didn’t do enough to spot illicit funds in handling $378.4 billion for Mexican-currency-exchange houses from 2004 to 2007. That’s the largest violation of the Bank Secrecy Act, an anti-money-laundering law, in U.S. history — a sum equal to one-third of Mexico’s current gross domestic product.”
““It’s the banks laundering money for the cartels that finances the tragedy,” says Martin Woods, director of Wachovia’s anti-money-laundering unit in London from 2006 to 2009. Woods says he quit the bank in disgust after executives ignored his documentation that drug dealers were funneling money through Wachovia’s branch network.”
If anyone believes that for a sum so large this illegality was accidental then I would like sell them the Brooklyn Bridge.
I first sent the following email back on 23rd February.
I will not offer any comments, I will just tell you that the silence from the BBC and the rest of the mainstream media on what seems to be the largest money laundering in history is DEAFENING.
Blackheath’s Speech on the ‘dodgy’ 15 TRILLION DOLLARS in the Feb 16th official transcript of the House of Lords
Lord James of Blackheath remarks follow the notation “16 Feb 2012 : Column 1016”
I have copied his concluding remarks below.
“each of the $5 trillion payments that came in has been acknowledged and receipted by senior executives at HSBC and again receipted by senior executives at the Royal Bank of Scotland. I have a set of receipts for all of this money. Why would any bank want to file $5 trillion-worth-$15 trillion in total-of receipts if the money did not exist? The money was first said to have come from the Riyadi account to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and from there it was passed to JP MorganChase in New York for onward transit to London. The means of sending it was a SWIFT note which, if it was genuine, ought to have been registered with the Bank of England.”
“When this came about, I took it to my noble friend Lord Strathclyde and asked what we should do with it. He said, “Give it to Lord Sassoon. He is the Treasury”. So I did, and my noble friend Lord Sassoon looked at it and said immediately, “This is rubbish. It is far too much money. It would stick out like a sore thumb and you cannot see it in the Royal Bank of Scotland accounts”. He went on to say, “The gold backing it is ridiculous. Only 1,507 tonnes of gold has been mined in the history of the world, so you cannot have 750,000 tonnes”. That is true. The third thing he said was, “It is a scam”, and I agree with him. The problem is that at that point we stopped looking, but we should have asked what the scam was instead of just nodding it off.”
“We have never resolved it. Today, I have this quite frightening piece of paper, which is my justification for bringing it into this meeting. It is available on the internet and I am astonished that it has not already been unearthed by the Treasury because every alarm bell in the land should be ringing if it has. It is from the general audit office of the Federal Reserve in Washington-the real Federal Reserve-and its audit”
“review to the end of July 2010 on the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. It has on it some 20 banks listed to which $16.115 trillion is outstanding in loans. That is the sore thumb that was being looked for by my noble friend Lord Sassoon. But more particularly there are two other interesting things. The first is that Barclays Bank has $868 billion of loan, and the Royal Bank of Scotland has $541 billion, in which case one has to ask a question, because they could have earned back in three weeks their entire indebtedness and could pay off the taxpayers of Britain. Why have they not done so and could we please ask them to put a cheque in the post tonight for the whole $46 billion?”
“The next thing that is wrong with it is that every bank on this list, without exception, is an MTN-registered bank, which means that they are registered to use medium-term notes to move funds between themselves with an agreed profit-share formula, in which case these banks are investing this money and, most extraordinarily, not a penny of interest does the Federal Bank of New York want paid on that vast amount, $16 trillion. Anyone who knows what the IMF rules are will immediately smell a rat. The IMF has very strict rules for validating dodgy money. There are two ways of doing it. You either pass it through a major central bank like the Bank of England, which apparently refused to touch this, or you put it through an MTN-trading bank, which is then able to use the funds on the overnight European MTN trading market where they can earn between 1 per cent and 2.5 per cent profit per night. The compound interest on that sum is huge. If it is genuine, a vast profit is being made on this money somewhere.”
“I believe that this is now such an important issue that I have put everything that I have got on the subject on to a 104-megabyte memory thumb. I want the Government to take it all, put it to some suitable investigative bureau and find out the truth of what is going on here, because something is very seriously wrong. Either we have a huge amount of tax uncollected on profits made or we have a vast amount of money festering away in the European banking system which is not real money, in which case we need to take it back. I ask for an investigation and for noble Lords to support my plea.”

The $15 TRILLION Money-Laundering Mystery
“Already, Lord James possesses documents with the signatures of people like Alan Greenspan and Timothy Geithner on them, as well as massive transfers of funds to virtually every mega-bank in the U.S. and UK.”
“While Lord James (himself a former banker) is holding the “paper trail” for all of this dirty money, he himself has no firm ideas about either the source of the money nor the intent of all of these massive transfers (all in the $100’s of billions) to U.S. and UK banks. Perhaps I can help him out?”
“Regular readers will be familiar with some of my own speculation into U.S. money-laundering (and counterfeiting of its own currency). Of interest, my own theorizing was based on a series of logical deductions which implied that some massive money-laundering operation (of counterfeit currency) must be taking place in the dying U.S. economy. And now we have a detailed paper-trail on the largest (known) money-laundering operation in history.”
“In fact there is a very powerful reason why this fraud had to be conducted in the same, criminal manner in which the Wall Street crime syndicate launders countless $100’s of billions of dirty-money (mostly CIA drug cartel money) every year.”
“As I explained in a separate commentary, it is a tautology of both logic and economics that any good which can be produced at zero cost and in infinite quantities (like the bankers’ paper currencies) is worthless.”
“For those clinging to the belief that there must be some rational/legitimate explanation for the paper-trail uncovered by Lord James, he dispels that with some further observations of his own. To begin with, there are concrete financial protocols which have been created to integrate any/every new large batch of the bankers’ fiat paper into global financial markets. None of those protocols was followed.”
David Wilcock…”SIX TRILLION IN “FAKE” FEDERAL RESERVE BONDS SEIZED IN ITALY” and “Lord James of Blackheath” Speech
“The timing of BOTH of these stories is very encouraging. FINANCIAL TYRANNY is now the defining standard of investigative journalism into this subject.
“Now that Zero Hedge has picked up our story, and pointed out our identical Chicago bond chest pictures, how much longer can the rest of the media refer to these cases without mentioning our investigation — or the Keenan lawsuit?
“Whether by synchronicity or deliberate intent from insiders, these events are causing many more people to ask questions — and when enough people begin investigating this subject, the truth will automatically prevail.”
Look at these Bank Resignations…

Exchange Stabilization Fund (created by the Gold Reserve Act of 1934) and it’s history
This guy has sourced everything that he presents in his video embedded in this website article.
“a super-secret Treasury operation”
“… gold and foreign currency dealings”
“virtually free of the control that Congress is supposed to exercise”
“used to pay for a number of strange activities”

“The Treasury through the ESF controls international finance”
“The ESF is supposed to defend the value of the USD but the USD has lost 95% of it’s purchasing power since 1934”
“The Gold Reserve Act of 1934 is the most important bill that has come before the Congress since the Civil War”
“In 1934 the USD was devalued (against gold) from $20.67/oz to £35/oz. The (resulting) $2.3 BILLION rise in Treasury cash became the WAR-CHEST of the Treasury and its ESF”
Senator Glass (of the Glass-Steagal bill fame) was one critic of the Gold Reserve Act of 1934 when he said that giving the biggest borrower in the world the ability to inflate its debts away is NOT SMART.
“If the ESF should fail then we might be drifting into a period of extreme (price) inflation”
“The ESF is under the exclusive control of the Secretary of the Treasury whose decisions are final and not be subject to review by any officer of the United States.”
“No congressional oversight of the ESF for all these years (written in 1998)”
“Secrecy about what a government does with the people’s money is never healthy”
“The Secretary of the Treasury is under no obligation to COMPLY WITH GENERAL LAWS of the United States in the handling of this fund”
“The ESF has been a source of funds for discretionary executive branch spending, the likes which Congress sought to prevent”
“the Iran-Contra scheme being a recent extreme example”
“The ESF has a long history of credit operations beginning in the early years of its existence”
“The ESF has been funding covert operations around the world for nearly 80 years”
“Harry Dexter White of the Treasury sat on many governmental committees, one of which oversaw the OSS who put out the ‘blackest’ propaganda you ever heard.”
“IMF, World Bank and the world monetary system (agreed upon at Bretton Woods) are ESF creations orchestrated by Harry Dexter White”
“The IMF and WB are ‘a camouflaged method’ of lending billions of dollars of American money abroad”
“Real bankers were conspicuously absent at Bretton Woods.”
“The heart and soul of covert operations is the provision of unvouchered funds, and the inviolability of such funds from outside inspection”
“The CIA plan of action is to defeat the communists in the April 1948 Italian elections”
“CIA’s secret support for fascists (eg Greece under George Papadopoulous), militarists (eg Pinochet) and murderers (eg Congo’s Mobutu), CIA’s uncritical support of death squads (El Salvador) and religious fanatics (Muslim fundamentalists in Afghanistan) create blowback movements against the United States”
“CIA’s official history could be written in blood not ink”
“In 1953 CIA helped overthrow a democratic elected government of Iran”
“In Guatemela CIA helped overthrow a democratic elected government of Jacobo Arbenz thus initiating 40 years of hell”
“In 1957-58s Indonesia …. In 1958-60s Laos …. In Ecuador the CIA ousted President Jose Velasco … the CIA arranged the murder of Congo Prim Minister Patrice Lumumba in 1961”
Also, Ghana in 1966, Chile in 1973, Greece in 1967, South Africa’s Nelson Mandela, Bolivia in 1964, Australia 1972-75, Brazil in 1962.”
“The ESF/CIA have set up a worldwide propaganda network.”
“The CIA went to extraordinary lengths to hide it’s media relationships.”

“Project Artichoke, a 15-year multi-billion dollar search by the CIA for ways to control the human mind.”
“The group of central bankers have rigged up a device to halt the raids on gold reserves.”
“The ESF is used by the U.S. to participate in the activities of the central gold pool, the U.S. supplied 59% of the gold sold there but the American money managers have never officially said the United States was taking part.”
“Wall Street journal article entitled ‘Gold data: Lesson in Artful Dodging’ starts by saying ‘in this business you have to chose between lying to the people or scaring them to death’.”
“techniques that range from double-counting gold bars to tinkering with maturities of otherwise routine Government securities.”
“Worrying about a possible world-wide deflation is the latest piece of pure ESF propaganda.”
“These days almost every Wall Street economist is looking for the arrival of a Great Deflation.”
“As part of its dollar defence the ESF promoted a new set of rules for managing the economy – it was called Keynesian economics.”
“’Inside Job’ the 2010 documentary directed by Charles Ferguson shows how the study of economics has been corrupted.”
“The ESF and President Kennedy’s Council of Economic Advisers had been engaged in a running battle over the best way to conduct the defense of the dollar.”
“Kennedy wanted radical new international mechanisms and far greater multi-lateral currency management that would have meant the end of the 1994 Bretton Woods agreement and the ESF controlled monetary system.”
I first sent the following email back on 20th November and I called ‘MF Global bankruptcy, $600M theft and the $800 TRILLION futures market’. The theft has since been recognised at $1.6B but nothing else seems to have changed in MF Global scandal as in no criminal cases.
A lot has been written about the goings on with MF Global who filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy on October 31st. Although MF Global is no Lehman Brothers, the full damage this has caused may not be properly appreciated by the establishment media. Following are some of the reports from the non-establishment media.
MF Global bankruptcy – An Unmitigated Disaster By: Theodore Butler
“The disaster is that for the first time in modern financial history, the main guarantee of the clearinghouse system has completely failed its most important constituent – the customer base. The underlying promise to every participant in the futures market is that your money and open positions are safe from theft and default.”
This is far worse than off-balance sheet exposure casting doubt on an institution’s solvency. These funds were stolen, there is no other accurate word for it.
“I would agree that the immediate cause of the MF Global bankruptcy was MF Global itself; but what turned it into a disaster of unprecedented proportions was the CME Group. The CME Group was the front line regulator for MFG, responsible for auditing and insuring the safety of customer funds and for guaranteeing those funds in a worst case scenario. The CME failed at every turn. Not only did its auditing fail miserably, the CME failed to step up to the plate to safeguard customer funds after it was discovered that $600 million was missing.”
“I know that the federal commodity regulator, the CFTC, has been negligent in the case of MF Global as well, but that does not mitigate the CME’s failures.”
“an article in today’s NY Times – “it was not just the CME’s reputation that was at stake but the entire futures business.” … “CME has a long history and strong track record in self-regulation,” ”
How’s that record in self-regulation looking now ?
Is The CME In Hot Water Over The MF Global Bankruptcy? Goldman Explains Why This Is The Case
“owing to worries it may face liability over the timing of its communication with the CFTC following discovery of a shortfall in MF Global’s segregated client accounts, given its obligations as the DSRO (designated self regulatory organization). According to the CFTC, a DSRO must provide “immediate notification” when “a member has failed to segregate or has misused customers’ funds.” ”
”MF Global informed the CFTC and CME of a shortfall in segregated assets early on October 31, thus any potential liability relates to reports that CME had uncovered that information before MF Global notified the CFTC. Given the DSRO’s responsibility to provide “immediate notification” to the CFTC of such information, any potential liability is likely to hinge on the timing of when CME initially discovered discrepancies.”
One thing Bill Clinton was famous for was for saying ‘It depends what the meaning of `is` is ?’. I wonder if can offer an alternative meaning for the two words in quotation marks ?
One criminal organization explains how another criminal organization failed to inform a third criminal organization… that is very interesting, but pointless, as no one will go to jail anyway.
Bankruptcy law does not authorise wind up merchants to seize segregated funds, although I am not sure that segregated funds were not raided before the bankruptcy.

MF Global Gold Futures (Segregated) Account Scandal Update with Gerald Celente – Skip to 4m50s
Listen to the CEO of CME Group, supposed guarantor http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3XpfPXxjbw&feature=player_embedded
The CEO says ‘$800 TRILLIONS of … risk’ – risk ?
The gold fututres are on the webpage http://www.cmegroup.com/trading/metals/precious/gold.html
And futures are available across Agriculture, Economic Events, Energy, Equity Index, FX, Interest Rates, Metals, OTC, Real Estate and Weather.
Are the CME group insane to risk a $800 TRILLION futures market by not guaranteeing the $600 million that was stolen from segregated accounts when the CME group has $100 billion collateral for just such guarantees ? The stolen funds are only 0.6% of the CME group’s claimed collateral and the CME group’s claimed collateral are 0.0125% of the funds in the futures market.
Joe Corzine the former CEO of now bankrupt MF Group is former Goldman Sachs and is lined up to be the next Treasury Secretary of the United States of America. The current and previous Treasury Secretaries of the United States of America, Timothy Geithner and Hank Paulson, are both former Goldman Sachs.
So why do I think the CME group is insane ? I am sure that Nigel Farage, a former commodity trader, can appreciate what I am about to say next; if participants in the $800 TRILLION futures market lose confidence in its proper functioning then they will exit their funds from the futures market so, although I am not sure if there is any other market with more ‘risk’ perhaps the bond market, I cannot imagine the kind of damage such a run would cause but I do know that it would not be like a normal bank run.

Gerald Celente: MF Global Looted Customers’ Accounts Via Internal Bank Run
It appears that JP Morgan has got its hands on $500 million of the $900 million shortfall in client funds of MF Global.
“By subordinating customers with collateral in segregated funds to creditors of MF Global’s estate, the Trustee is essentially making the creditors the beneficiary of a criminal act. If MF Global comingled segregated funds with corporate assets, it was a criminal act. Paying such a creditor’s claim with a portion of those comingled funds would make them a beneficiary of that crime.”
”Paying JP Morgan with an Iowa farmer’s money is not only morally and legally wrong, it risks the future of the American economic model. Who would want to hold a commodities account in the United States ever again? Considering the MF Global’s clients have no representation on the creditors committee, but the big banks do (like JP Morgan and Bank of America), that is exactly what will happen without intervention.”
Gerald Celente: MF Global…What about Gold ETF GLD & HSBC?
“And I get this call that I have a margin call and I said, ‘What, are you out of your mind? I have enough money to take possession.’ (A voice on the other end of the line said) ‘Well you don’t anymore, they’ve decided to put the money with a Trustee.’ They closed out a couple of my positions because I refused to send more money.”
What have they done taking funds that do not belong to the corporation and given it to the bankruptcy trustee ?
Celente should have replied ‘you mean they’ve decided to illegally put the money with a Trustee’
MF Global: Was It A Hit?
MF Global Looted Customers’ Accounts Via Internal Bank Run
“MF Global conducted “unexplained wire transfers” that led to a $900 million shortfall in client funds”
“Although individuals were burned by the broker’s downfall, larger clients were protected from the fallout because they had the miraculous fortune of withdrawing all their funds just weeks before the collapse.”
“billions of dollars of accounts were “coincidentally” withdrawn,” writes Huffington Post’s Daniel Dicker, noting how funds in accounts owned by the billionaire Koch brothers were withdrawn just in time, clearly suggesting that big players got a “heads up” that MF Global was going down.”
“As the Financial Times reported, the hundreds of millions in looted funds from customers’ accounts later “turned up at JPMorgan Chase, the failed broker-dealer’s custody bank.” ”
“They are going to steal all our money.”
“the merger of state and corporate powers” has brought “fascism” to America.”
