This show aired two weeks ago and I was astonished to see it but more astonished that I saw no follow up news on it. Indeed, as of today this video has only 3884 views

It's not that hard to figure out.

What is hard to figure out is how they can let J.P. Morgan cover their silver short positions. J.P.M. would be bankrupt tomorrow if they were forced to cover, we can't have that now can we? Ron Paul was their # 1 enemy and I'm sure they had a hand in the process of all the cheating that went on.
Here is a good video Max Keiser how to crash JP Morgan. He started this campaign two years ago.

How JP Morgan will cover their silver short positions

The same way they did in 2007. They are too connected big to fail, so the Federal Reserve will be "forced" to buy up their short contracts to "maintain stability" or "prevent systemic collapse." The best Congress that money can buy will nod their heads in sage agreement and vow that this is the very last time the bank will get bailed out, you betcha.

I don't think it will be that easy.

The bank bailouts left a bitter taste in every tax payers mouth. Any congressman's name attached to another bailout would be political suicide. I think they have to get creative this time But I could be wrong.

what's really sad is...

they crushed InTrade in far less time, but they still muddle along with this silver "investigation".

So it's clear now; want to run a successful business that we aren't part of? Prepare to be crushed.

Want to manipulate commodity markets? Just fine, so long as we get our cut (and if you have any doubt there, go look at where that rat fook Gensler comes from, along with most of the rest of 'em).

Mmm let me guess... Goldman Sachs?

How about Jon Corzine?

and the man who gave us "Corzined"...

"His first business experience was in the bond department of Continental Illinois National Bank, where he worked days while attending the Booth School of Business MBA program at night.[9][12] He then moved to BancOhio National Bank, a regional bank in Columbus, Ohio that was acquired in 1984 by National City Bank. Corzine worked at BancOhio until 1975 when he moved his family to New Jersey and was hired as a bond trader for Goldman Sachs.

Goldman Sachs

Over the years, he worked his way up to Chairman and CEO of the company in 1994 and successfully converted the investment firm from a private partnership to a publicly traded corporation. Corzine's predecessor had led Goldman to its first money-losing year in its 129-year history and to its near collapse as a firm.[13] Corzine also chaired a presidential commission for Bill Clinton and served on the U.S. Treasury Department's borrowing committee.[14] As a Goldman Sachs senior partner, he was summoned to help develop a rescue package for the hedge fund Long Term Capital Management when the leveraged fund's collapse in the fall of 1998 threatened contagion across the U.S. financial system.[15] According to U.S. News & World Report, Corzine did not get along with co-CEO Henry Paulson,[16] who came from the other major area of the bank, investment banking.[17] When Corzine decided to help the bailout, Paulson seized control of the firm.[18] As co-chairman of the firm, he oversaw its expansion into Asia.[19] When Goldman Sachs went public after Corzine's departure,[16] Corzine made $400 million.[3]

Corzine has participated in meetings of the Bilderberg Group, a network of leaders in the fields of politics, business, and banking, from 1995–1997, 1999, 2003 and 2004.[20]"


but of course...

"Gary Gensler joined Goldman Sachs in 1988 and spent 18 years there. He became a partner at the age of 30, youngest in Goldman Sachs history at the time. He later became head of the company’s fixed income and currency trading operations in Tokyo by the mid-’90s, and eventually the company’s co-head of finance.[10]

He also advised the National Football League in its television negotiations in 1990. He helped raise the TV-advertisement-price-per-team to $32 million per year, up from $17 million from the previous contract.

Gensler is the co-author of the 2000 book (with Greg Baer), The Great Mutual Fund Trap. It argues that active trading and investing is an inefficient strategy for individual investors, and that individuals should stick with index and exchange traded funds."
