U.S. Senate Finds JPM Lied and Deceived Regulators

Earlier this afternoon, the U.S. Senate Permanent Sub-Committee on Investigations issued a report on JP Morgan, specifically the "London Whale" derivatives trading loss fiasco. 

Here are the key links from ZeroHedge:

And below is the Scribd copy of the entire report.

REPORT - JPMorgan Chase Whale Trades (3!15!13)2

I have maintained for months that JPM's naked short position in silver is an enormously over-leveraged and careless bet that they have placed in order to control and manipulate the market; actions nearly identical to those by Bruno Iksil that were investigated and condemned in this report. When JPM's level of deceit in silver finally becomes public knowledge....well, let's just say that things are going to get very interesting.

Once again, truth will prevail and we shall be vindicated.

Fascinating

It seems the US authorities are happy to investigate any wrong doing so long as it happens inside a British bank or in London. Hypocrites.

On the same note

look at the CTFC going after the London fix on silver. London is the weak link. It lacks political cover from a strong government.

Plead the 5th

Bad vibe

Here are a few examples of bombshell news, that had little or no effect on either the perpetrators or the ongoing crime:

  • LIBOR
  • Goldman Suchs' front-running program.
  • HSBC drugs money laundering
  • News International phone hacking scandal
  • Routine lobbying / bribing of congressmen since at least Mark Twain's lifetime.
  • Iraqi WMD was a premeditated fabrication
  • 700 bn of TARP funds were extracted on a dubious, even duplicitous premise
  • Fukushima is spewing radiation.

you get the gist.

On the other hand, something will ultimately pull down the whole rotten edifice. Maybe it needs to be something huge, or maybe it will ultimately just be one straw, being the final straw.

2nd. About time

Excellence. JPM is scum!!

Unfortunately, Jamie Dimon will walk away scott free and Obama will probably give him a medal. He will probably say something like, " See that DOW new high Obama, You didnt do that. So shut up and buy the first round...bitch!"

Obama would say, " Sure, No problem Jamie ill just put it on the taxpayers tab...again". With a big Dumbo eared smile. (cue Hillary Clinton Laugh)

Jamie Dimon is Obamas magic feather.

That graphic would do well.....hmmmm....who knows graphics? Pinning???

FASCIST SCUM!!!

About F'n time!

Who knows how this plays out but this is the brightest light I've seen cast upon them with the strongest language so far.

If the pol's find nothing wrong and then this eventually blows up with the real truth coming out afterwards because some type of epic meltdown eventually happens I'll lead the march towards DC with a friggin' flaming guitar in my hand.

Nice story, to bad it doesn't mean anything

 To big to jail is just what it says.

 There will be zero consequences.

@Byzantium re: silver rarity . . .

follow-up from previous thread wherein you wanted some facts re: silver being rarer than gold above ground:

https://www.gold-eagle.com/editorials_05/zurbuchen052006.html

He did a series of articles along these lines. This one is most proximate to the data you seek. At end of article, you can see other parts of this series he did back in 2006.

JPMorgan's new vault license at comex

will make regulators obsolete with fox at hen house (as it currently exists yet total fubar).

Slap on the hand by a limp senate committee for bad doings...a distraction while they get a vault...! The implications are horrendous.

If you recall any others, then PM me. There is the likelihood I will be involved in a forum to be set up for this.

@Byzantium . . .

This article is pretty thorough. He found that there is more total silver than gold above ground, counting everything (1:6 gold: silver), but agrees that deliverable form finds silver lacking, but with potential, at much higher prices, to bring more back to market.

He sort of attacks Butler early-on, but as I recall, Butler was talking about deliverable silver as well when he spoke of the relative rarity. 

I think you'll find it pretty interesting and conclusive, at least up to 2006.

"Here are a few examples of bombshell news, that had little or no effect on either the perpetrators or the ongoing crime:"

Indeed. It has no effect because everyone who's involved ignores the problems - just as long as they can keep making money.

Why did the LIBOR manipulation disappear so quickly from the news, when it was, and still is, the biggest scam of all time?

Because it has to be disappeared, helped along by the way it's presented by the MSM. "London Inter-Bank Offered Rate". Just saying that is enough to keep the sheep switched-off and asleep.

So the scams continue.

"something will ultimately pull down the whole rotten edifice"

Yes. The truth always comes out in the end. Lies have no ground. It's inevitable that it will all collapse in time.

JPM too big to jail. Fraud as big as a whale

Findings of Fact:

JPM is both as bent as a nine bob note, and out of control. Banksters breaks laws with impunity. Executive management are criminally negligent but no-one calls for prison or consequences for the bankster elite, just fines. But woe betide a commoner who dares transgress! Then it's the Taser and full invasive body search, then off to the clink for life, and don;t forget the Vaseline my beauty.

Feck why didn;t this take over four years to sort out? How could they release the truth like this on a non bad news cover day?

Also just watched that Russell Crowe Robin Hood flick. What a croc. From Hadrian's Wall, to Sherwood to the white cliffs of Dover to fight the French all in a 20 minute canter? Fighting the French??? Robin Hood? WTF is this film about??? As an Aussie he should be embarrassed to be involved with shite like this. Almost as bad as that crap film about the Enigma machine.

Mar 14, 2013 - 9:19pm

Please allow me a rant

If this is flaming - please let me know. Maybe I'm just irritable and intolerant.

As I read through the last thread, there were a couple of posters who were concerned with the amount of above ground of silver. They decided they did not have enough facts to know. As if that were important.

DUDES - IT DOESN'T MATTA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Silver will be the first element to become extinct according to the USG.

Silver is a currency. It has been so for thousands of years. The same word for currency and silver (in some relation) exists in numerous languages (including Mandarin I might add).

Silver will be a currency again - why do you think the premium on 90% US Ag is at an all time high? Why are ASE sales at an all time high? They will be used for barter in a SHTF scenario. Silver stopped being a currency a short 48 years ago in the US. Why is a 1964 US $.10 now worth $2.20? People are waking up. Inflation is going to eat us alive whether or not there are undisclosed billions of tons of physical silver or not. Where are you going to put extra fiat dollars?????????

C'mon this website is about the end of the Keynesian experiment.

Decide if you are a trader or a holder. If you are a trader - good luck.

Decide if you believe in the thesis that:

GLOBAL MONEY PRINTING IS GOING TO LEAD TO MASSIVE INFLATION

Keep stacking. Keep stacking. Keep stacking. You cannot go wrong - 

BUY EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU MIGHT NEED - JUST IN CASE!!!!

DEVELOP A PLAN FOR NUMEROUS SCENARIOS - JUST IN CASE!!!!!

STOP WORRYING ABOUT IRRELEVANT STUFF.

"INVEST" IN PHYSICAL SILVER BECAUSE IT IS RIGHT THING TO DO - PERIOD.

OK now - I'm done.

Thanks
