JPMorgan Spoofer Pleads Guilty To Gold Manipulation, Faces 11 Years In Jail

from ZeroHedge:

There was a time when the merest mention of gold manipulation in “reputable” media was enough to have one branded a perpetual conspiracy theorist with a tinfoil farm out back. That was roughly coincident with a time when Libor, FX, mortgage, and bond market manipulation was also considered unthinkable, when High Frequency Traders were believed to “provide liquidity”, when the stock market was said to not be manipulated by the Fed, and when the ever-confused media, always eager to take “complicated” financial concepts at the face value set by a self-serving establishment, never dared to question anything.

Are Recessions Inevitable?

by Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute:

Stocks fell last week following news that the yield curve on Treasury notes had inverted. This means that a short-term Treasury note was paying higher interest rates than long-term Treasury note. An inverted yield curve is widely seen as a sign of an impending recession.

Some economic commentators reacted to the inverted yield curve by parroting the Keynesian propaganda that recessions are an inevitable feature of a free-market economy, whose negative effects can only be mitigated by the Federal Reserve. Like much of the conventional economic wisdom, the idea that recessions are caused by the free market and cured by the Federal Reserve is the exact opposite of the truth.

Statistical Analysis of America’s 8 Stage Decline Into Genocide

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

Gregory H. Stanton, President of Genocide Watch, wrote the most salient paper on the topic of Democide, that is by definition, genocide by government against its people. In his analysis, Stanton identified 8 key stages related to the process of genocide?Classification Symbolization Dehumanization Organization Polarization Preparation, Extermination and Denial.

Stanton defines genocide as “A process that develops in eight stages that are predictable but not inexorable. At each stage, preventive measures can stop it. The process is not linear.  Logically, later stages must be preceded by earlier stages.  But all stages continue to operate throughout the process. In other words, the processes and stages overlap and this is precisely what we see in modern day America.

Internal Documents Reveal How Monsanto Targeted and Discredited Journalists and Activists

by John Vibes, Humans Are Free:

Monsanto waged a propaganda war against the activist and journalists who spoke out against them, according to documents recently disclosed as a part of the company’s ongoing court battle over the dangers posed by their top-selling weedkiller, “Roundup.”

It has come to light that the company operated a “fusion center,” where employees were given the task of spying on journalists and activists while targeting them with smear campaigns.

Even high profile figures like Neil Young were targeted for their anti-Monsanto activism. Neil Young became such a thorn in the company’s side that they actually considered legal action against him at one point.
