Santelli just said that traders were walking up to him with tears in their eyes unable to get their money....then they cut away to Liesman real quick for happy news...

They're now openly proclaiming how they are "Team Hopium" and they're intent on reporting only good / positive news.  Sounds like the string pullers behind CNBC are getting more blatent in an attempt to pump.

She does seem pretty happy to speak her mind. Good for her but I expect whe has some agro coming her way. From what I just read she will not be too easy to intimidate.

Check out Gerald Celentes reaction at the Alex Jones show to the whole thing, and the robbery the MotherFuckers did to him. Priceless. Hope they guy gets some of his gold back, but I doubt it..

I better reread it. Where does he suggest you keep these funds, In your brokerage sweep account? That clearing house is vulnerable too...is it not?  In 0% yielding government paper which is hard to even find these days or in other FDIC instruments.

Where is he suggesting to put the proceeds from the liquidation ????

(True ZHers know the only real safety is physical PM----I'm wondering where he think you should keep your cash dollars)

This demonstrates a level of morality I had no idea existed in the financial world.

It seems the woman is very religious, judging by the bible quotes on their site.

I think what she says is correct, but not necessarily everyone else will figure it out that fast.

Not even slightly religious myself, but I do credit them with "at least believing in something".  You need some kind of a moral framework from which to make judgements and hopefully it evolves as you go through life, learning and growing.


I agree with you though that most people being thouroghly disinterested in value systems will continue to see MF Global and other events as the content of gossip rather than an indictment of our approach to values.

What was a surprise was the reaction of the exchanges and regulators. Their reaction has been to take a bad situation and make it orders of magnitude worse. Specifically, they froze customers out of their accounts WHILE THE MARKETS CONTINUED TO TRADE, refusing to even allow them to liquidate.





*Please do not read the funds availability fine print on the FDIC signs at the bank teller windows.

Oh it has...many times in fact.  Does it without warrant or justification at times.


And people still think that the FDIC promise of insurance is worth anything.  All the FDIC does is provide another venue of government employment that produces nothing at the end of the day.

I love that small print. Pretty much says you aren't getting a penny because you are covered up to $250k in non interest bearing accounts. If you've got cash in a big bank, you ain't getting nothin when it all goes down. The banks don't have it and the gov isn't going to give it to you. A couple people in my family told me I was crazy. I told them to go try and take 5 grand out of an account and see what happens. At the next holiday I wasn't called crazy anymore.

you go girl.

It is time to stop the fleecing of Americans by the cabal.

I suggest we contact all of our representatives and demand an investigation.  On an individual basis, it is the only way for them to avoid being part of the problem.

Our representatives are just as bad.  No need to contact anyone but each other.  Check out of the whole thing.  We can start a new system.  "Yes we can"  Tee hee.   That Obama statement gonna haunt him.   And not in a good way.

Meh, what's the value of moral relativism?

One plays dumb while a false-flag attack occurs, and the other plays dumb while JPM devours the few remaining entities "not in the club," destroying the futures markets along the way. You can be sure of one thing though, both JPM and GS are getting paid back for doing all of the Treasury's dirty-work, with neither having to worry about the future of their PM shorts.

Criminal Prosecutions for Financial
Institution Fraud Continue to Fall



Federal prosecutions for financial institution fraud have continued their downward slide despite the financial troubles reported in this sector. The latest available data from the Justice Department show that during the first eleven months of FY 2011 the government reported 1,251 new prosecutions were filed. If this activity continues at the same pace, the annual total of prosecutions will be 1,365 for this fiscal year, down 28.6 percent from their numbers of just five years ago and less than half the level prevalent a decade ago.



Number Year-to-date 1,251



Percent Change from previous year





Percent Change from 5 years ago





Percent Change from 10 years ago





Percent Change from 20 years ago
