Conspiracy Fact Versus
By Dr. Jeffrey Lewis
“The few who understand the system will either be so
interested from its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no
opposition from that class.”
-Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863
The mainstream is on an academically-driven
mission to politicize conspiracy theories and lump them all into the same
category. While gold and silver manipulation is an ancient conspiracy fact, eyes
are wide shut to the general awareness in the face of one revelation after
The news cycle is filled with a carefully
crafted digestion of tightly controlled sound bites that are presented with no
lack of drama, glitter, and spotlights. The mainstream media is perfectly
positioned to make theater of the issues that remain esoteric and out of reach.
The further the issue is from the majority's perception, the more black and
white will be the acceptance. Belief is emotional, politically framed.
The poor, shrinking middle class and
disenfranchised are the collateral damage. They are voiceless against an elite
group that watches television series like "House of Cards" with acceptance, safe
from the colder realities portrayed. Their wealth depends on it. The direct
recipients of trillions (that trickled up from the depths of the money printing
chambers) supply the last remnants of liquidity for a Ponzi. It is the same
scheme that so desperately requires every morsel, essentially every lie, to be
Was Michael Lewis' new book, “Flash
Boys" embraced in a safe chamber?
The issue of high frequency trading has
been written and complained about for nearly a decade. One could argue that
another entire conspiracy surrounds its release. And the joke, of course, is
that nothing has changed since the release and subsequent debates.
The effect of the observations from the
inside out is that more confusion exists. And is it a coincidence that Goldman
Sachs is back from vampire squid status made popular by Rolling Stones writer
Matt Taibi-riding in to save the day yet again?
Yet, we can never get close enough to the
issue. The release of the "Flash Boys" arrived, drunk on the same champaign
socialism we have become accustomed to in practically every part of modern life.
Most perceive issues like this - especially with regard to finance - as ships on
the horizon blanketed in a warm haze of promises that justice will arrive.
The investing professional is numb as well,
resigned to accept the market for however it presents itself. Powerless, yet
still influential; a legion of traders which denies its sacred markets are
tainted with anything but the invisible outside force.
With no real skin in the game, risk
blanketed by the socialization of failure, and an endless supply of liquidity
from which to skim useless profits, who can blame them?
Gold and Silver Manipulation
The depth of price action and market
commentary seem to be bottomless pits. It feels reminiscent of 2008 when prices
fell from $20 (a milestone many could never contemplate at the time). This was
the time when Chris Powell of GATA first coined the phrase “price action makes

And when silver breaches $100 for the first
time, it will be promptly dropped to below $50 two months later over concerns of
industrial shortage. Indeed, absurdity has become reality- one which begs for
even a tiny slice of precious physical allocation.
