CRASHING THE MARKET: Short Selling Shares That Don't Exist For Fun and Profit. (Reposted)

This article was originally published here at Winter Patriot Community blog more than 18mths ago. It is relevant again because of the latest stock market crash under way. Nothing has changed. The 'who's', the 'whats' and the 'why's' are all the same. The Crashes and the Depressions are artificially induced by the people who control the hedge funds, the stock markets, the banks and the governments

This is massive fraud and theft happening in 'real time'.

The only thing that will stop this massive rorting of the economy and the thieving of people's wealth is widespread public exposure

(Foreword - In the following, the words “stocks” and “shares” mean the same thing and are interchangeable. Similarly, “share scrip” and “share certificates” are interchangeable. I have assumed, too, that you, the reader, are familiar with Credit Creation or the way money comes into existence through banking practice. If you are not familiar with this foundational piece of corruption in Western society, you can read about it here – Warring Worlds pt4b )

If I were to tell you that you had been 'shorted' in a deal you made, most people would ordinarily take that to mean you had been cheated. Being shorted is being dudded. So 'shorting the market' or 'short selling' is a very aptly named practice because basically it is cheating the market, i.e. it's fraud. Too many years ago, I worked for the Melbourne Stock Exchange in Australia and 'short selling' was banned there then for this reason because it involves selling something you don't have and that's illegal most places I know. It's really, really simple. (What the situation is now at the MSE I don't know). (Short selling is now permissible under ASX rules throughout Australia - Ed)

Back then when delivery of scrip was a lengthy process it was my understanding, and also of everyone I knew, that the short sellers simply took advantage of this lengthy delay. I heard no one talking about 'borrowing' share scrip (certificates) to deliver and replacing them at a later date. The 'borrowing scrip' idea is a relatively new explanation to my ears, at least, and this explanation is, no doubt, necessary now because of the much faster electronic settlement times. But, it still leaves many questions.

Punishment: The Road To Hell

Margaret Thatcher was a stupid woman. Yet, she was impressive. Just as a steel trap is impressive when it springs into action catching a hapless victim in its jaws. And yet, the trap is stupid at the same time. It is entirely reflexive and cannot think past what it is primed to do. Margaret Thatcher had a mind like a steel trap. She was primed by the bankers of the City of London to deliver unto them a large proportion of the wealth and with it the economic freedom and autonomy of the ordinary people of Britain including and especially the people of Northern Ireland.

The discrimination against the Catholics of Northern Ireland (the indigenous Irish) by the local ruling elite and their supporters (chiefly of English and Scottish by heritage) was becoming all too evident and the pressures for a representative democracy and even a reuniting with the South were mounting. To ward off this potential economic loss, the rulers of England decided to embark on covert violence once more through their Secret Services and covert military units.

The scene was set two or three generations before when the British Government prevailed upon the Irish Government, in the person of Michael Collins, to accept a partition of Ireland as part of a peace treaty. This automatically created a division within Ireland to be exploited by the British rulers to bring about anything but peace. They make a habit of doing this. Ask anyone on the Indian subcontinent. Or anyone in the Middle East.

A Blogger on Norway


Source

Today I'd like to feature another blogger; something I don't do enough of. The blogger in question is Suraci. He has a enduring ability to continually cut through the fog of the media and to succinctly state the bleeding obvious which many of us miss. Here are two recent examples regarding the killings in Norway -


Appeal to the controlled media

BERLIN (JTA) -- "The confessed perpetrator in the attack in Norway that killed at least 76 people espoused a right-wing philosophy against Islam that also purports to be pro-Zionist."

This is the very first paragraph in an Israeli publication about the Norway atrocity. As you can see, they do not shy away from linking this man to Zionism, because that is what he was.

The British press (so called), will not use this term. They hide behind such phraseology as extreme right wing and anti Muslim.

No, let's get it right: he was a Zionist. He supported Israel to the hilt, and even the Israeli press do not try to hide this.

That clarifies things a bit, doesn't it? The rest of that short post can be read here. Just click on "I Understand and I Wish to Continue" smiling

Gold in Garbage? (updated)

Garbage- sm

Here is an article from 'The Economic Collapse' blog concerning the decline and fall of the United States economy. It is from last year but nothing will have changed.

Historians tell us that by the very end of the Roman Empire, goods were pouring into Rome from all over the known world, but about the only thing being sent out of Rome was human waste and garbage. America has not yet reached that point, but we are certainly well on our way. In 2010, the number one U.S. export to China is "scrap and trash". Yes, you read the correctly. The number one thing that China buys from us is our garbage. According to author Clyde Prestowitz, China's number one export to the U.S. is computer equipment (nearly $50 billion) while our number one export to them is waste paper and scrap metal (approximately $8 billion). When it comes to world trade, China is literally wiping the floor with the United States. In August, the U.S. trade deficit with China set a new one month record of $28 billion dollars. Our insane trade policies are making China (along with several of our other "trade partners") incredibly wealthy, and the U.S. government ends up begging China to lend that money back to us to fund the exploding U.S. national debt. That just isn't stupidity - that is insanity.

No, it's actually something else; a gold shaft

What strikes me from this article, and every other one like this that I've read, is that it doesn't seem to occur to the author that this relentless slide into poverty and destitution which goes against ALL business and capitalist principles could be deliberate; that it could be a calculated campaign. It's simple, really.

It never seems to occur to so many people, too, that whatever is going 'wrong' is actually going 'right' for the people who control the situation. If it wasn't going right for them, they'd change it. It's simple, really.

So who controls the economy (and government) in the US? the people behind the banks that control the Federal Reserve Bank of NY. And who's behind these people? The Rothschilds. So they have been overseeing this rapid decline.

And who's been cosying up to China ever since Deng Xiaoping opened up China to international trade? Rothschilds. Simple, no?

The Chinese needed gold to trade in those days. Guess where they got it from? And guess where the Rothschilds got it from? Ever wondered why there hasn't been an audit of the gold at Fort Knox for decades?

So its not stupidity or insanity. It's simply a right royal, 24 carat, shafting.

ADDENDUM

Chuckyman left a great link in the comments and I'll repeat it here-
http://theintelhub.com/2011/07/26/the-rothschilds-and-the-hong-kong-merc...

I don't share the author's estimate of the intelligence of the Rothschilds, though. Cunning as shithouse rats, maybe. But not ' brilliant men', by any means. They have a very limited repertoire which they repeat ad nauseum. But apart from that minor quibble, it has a very good overview of things and some very good links as well for further reading.

I was remiss in my writing above in not emphasising the answer to all this economic mayhem. It lies in first recognising the enemy; in understanding that the 'incompetence' and 'bad luck' and 'nobody could have predicted' excuses are always lies. A simple statistical proof of the deliberate nature of the destruction is that even a monkey will be right half the time. The mathematics of random chance and probability determine that. To get it 'wrong' ALL the time requires an elaborate and detailed plan and a co-ordinated campaign.

So if authors like the one who wrote the featured article above, understood this deliberate nature, they would do their readers an enormous service in pointing that out together with exactly who is doing it and why. Once all this is grasped, then the problem is more than half solved.

We are getting there, though. There's a heck of a lot more knowledge of what is going on out there now than there was even from a couple of years ago.

So the 'call to action', folks, is to continue to tell everyone that will listen that the economic breakdown is deliberate, who is doing it and why.

Gadaffi's Son on the War by NATO

This is a Russia Today interview (12 mins) with Colonel Gadaffi's son, Saif Al-Islam, on the War by Nato on Libya and the reasons for it. Saif Al-Islam also talks about his mistakes in dealing with the West and that these are a lesson for other countries.

Shorter version - Deal with snakes and you will get bitten!

Syria Next? (Updated)


source

Please see update at the foot of this article

This follows on from NJT's post below and from Penny of “Penny For Your Thoughts” who has put up a piece on the killing of 120 Syrian police and servicemen in Syria.

Penny makes some astute observations regarding the reports of this mass killing in the British newspapers and asks some pertinent questions. Many of the links in my post below come from Penny's article.

We know that the BBC and the Guardian act as mouthpieces for the government and their security services. The Voice of America was overtly established as a propaganda arm of the US government, for goodness sake. So these reports (linked above) will be deliberately misleading, at least, in one way or another.

We also know that the security services of the US, Israel and Britain are up to their armpits in these 'Arab Spring uprisings'

Yet, of all the possible scenarios mentioned in these reports, the possibility that the gunmen are foreign military or security services trained personnel is never mentioned. The staging and success of these operations sound much more like special forces troops than "armed gangs".
