LIVE: Nexia BT Associates Back In Court In Corruption And Money Laundering Case

Lucas DiBlasi, 26 May 2021

Nearly every large company in the United States laid workers off, furloughed them or cut their salaries last year, all the while paying their CEOs incredible amounts of money.

After losing $4 billion, Norwegian Cruise Lines doubled the pay of CEO Frank Del Rio to $36.4 million. Hilton, the world’s second-largest hotel company, laid off about 22% of their global corporate staff before paying their CEO, Chris Nassetta, nearly $56 million.

And what’s Nassetta’s take on the year? He told investors he’s “pounding the table with optimism” and will be able to “return even more capital than we were pre-Covid to our shareholders.” Continue reading “Article: Opinion | CEOs are grossly overcompensated while workers suffer”

EVERY SINGLE OUNCE OF PHYSICAL SILVER HAS BEEN SOLD UP TO 1000 TIMES

Egon von Greyerz , 23 April 2021

The silver price is today half of the January 1980 level. That was the peak at $50 which silver reached again 31 years later in 2011. But alas, the bullion banks, aided by the BIS (Bank for International Settlement) and central banks have again managed to push it down again and today silver is only $26.10.

The current silver price has nothing to do with supply and demand. In a real market the Price of Silver would be substantially higher. In a fake market, the manipulators have no problem to suppress the price by selling virtually unlimited fake paper silver.

David K. Lifschultz: New Forms of [Wall Street] Treason?

Letter

Max Keiser does not really understand what the monetary expansion has to cover.

Central banks are transferring wealth from the average person to the likes of Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos – RT’s Keiser Report

You have according to the BIS 600 trillion in derivatives against a 81 trillion dollar world GDP or a multiple of 7. The BIS coordinates only the banks so this figure does not include insurance company derivatives or others in private industry unless a bank is connected to the transaction so it is grossly understated.  Some Swiss bankers tell me it is more like 1.2 quadrillion and others up to 2.5 quadrillion. 1.2 quadrillion gives you a multiple on the world GDP of 14 and 2.5 quadrillion a multiple of 30.

10 weapons Wall Street uses to manipulate you

Paul B. Farrell, 18 February 2014

New “Infinity Machine!” Yes. “Quantum Leap?” Yes. “The Future of Computing?” Well, no IPO yet. No Dell laptops. But wow, Time’s cover story sure is heaping praise on the amazing new quantum physics computer technology:

New quantum computing “promises to solve some of humanity’s most complex problems … backed by Jeff Bezos, NASA and the CIA … each costs $10,000,000 … operates at 459 degrees below zero.” Even the fact that “nobody knows how it actually works” isn’t a problem, says Time’s Lev Grossman. Why? Quantum computing “will change how we cure disease, explore the heavens and do business on Earth.”

But is it really a miracle-worker? Will it come with a moral conscience? Know right from wrong? Or will the amazing “Infinity Machine” just be the next generation of superhot, but soulless big-data processors? Ask yourself: Continue reading “Article: 10 weapons Wall Street uses to manipulate you”
