President’s Working Group on Financial Markets or The "Plunge Protection Team" (PPT) is a colloquial name given to the Working Group on Financial Markets.

Time to pull the rug out, and fleece the Muppets again.

I got my haircut in 2009. Hit me once, shame on you. Hit me again, shame on ME.

You are right, of course...time to gin up the panic, just like 20 months ago. The Institutional Account Managers will load up in a few weeks...with FED ZIRP QE funds.

by Monday, these folks will all have changed out their shorts, put on their walking pants and pretend to be innocent recipients of some extra wealth over the weekend


as if this game hasn't been played, again and again


one day, wealth will eventually mean nothing...and i'm certain that can be interpreted in many ways

Short trading day with low volume is easy to move the market. Crash on Friday when you are positioned for it and go long on Monday for the pop up. Trigger lots of stops. Paint the books for the end of the year.

Just yesterday my sister in law was saying she is happy with her investments.......

Create a problem > offer a solution > profit

In no time at all this "unexpected event" will cause the federal reserve to reverse their alleged tapering plans.

Not at all. I'm outright saying that they're effing liars. :)

People not escaping dollar denominated assets need to get their asses moving...this may be your final warning.

The next Monday could be a Black Monday (no offense to our African friends), or the one after that, or the one after that....my point is, one never knows when the hammer will fall!!

As a long term market watcher, nothing new here... Low volume the shorts always gain advantage. Duh! Call it a buying opportunity and wait till Tuesday!

The hammer, or rather, the club, IS falling.

Not on the market, directly. On the Muppets. We have been two years of being slapped goofy by this Covidiocy. Now it's augmented by contrived shortages and stronger threats to force the Clot Shot.

Into all this goes the (hoped-for) Christmas rush. Feeling Christmasy? I sure ain't. With inflation running at 14 percent, with the food shelves bare in stores, with every clown with a microphone, going on about how nastybad is Whitey...I'm feeling like pulling my horns in.

Survival. Nothing else.

The Christmas rush makes, or breaks, retailers' year. Now some of these globalist-oligarchs got where they are with RETAILING. The Walton family and those who bought in early. Many others, from Gates to the Disney Queer Mafia, rely on discretionary spending.

They are destroying all that. How badly will they be hit? If the dollar crashes, what they have will be worthless or (real estate) marked WAY down. People don't need private islands when they can't feed themselves. The few with PMs, need concrete-reinforced bunker-homes.

iirc, last year i did a brief analysis and came to a conclusion: Pro Sports Teams were loosing in the hundreds of millions of dollars per season, and now with some spectator involvement, for the life of me i don't understand you people who participate by giving our overlords your entertainment money, but hey, what do i care...pay our enemies makes zero sense to me...those loses are probably a bit less this season

yet watch how much they're willing to pay next years draft choices, you'll see, they've got lots more to toss away


but i've also read, many owners and their syndicates are not happy losing any amount of money while the NFL says to them: STFU or lose your team


great strategy, the NFL are the crooks and the sheep contains idiots...


my opinions are based upon me...don't get pissy because i don't agree with what some are doing, you fanatics

it's your money, but our lives......so, i'm probably going to repeat myself in the future

I can't argue with your logic. The media gives the impression everything is 'normal' when in reality, it's far from it! The cities are boiling with hate and division. This coming Christmas might be one we'll always remember. Only God knows and only time will tell!

U.S. Announces New Travel Restrictions as Scientists Give New COVID Variant The Name Omicron – A Strategic New Variant Introduced to Help Offset Global Inflation

November 26, 2021 | Sundance | 335 Comments

We originally outlined the new COVID-19 variant along with the international motives of the science community for delivering it HERE. Previously the new worrisome, 10 spike, vaccine resistant variant was called “The B.1.1.529 variant“. However, those types of names do not work well for larger fear narrative distribution. As a result, the international scientific community has given it the name “Omicron“. Perhaps the “Merry Christmas” variant would be culturally insensitive.

Globally, and not coincidentally –politically– the greatest challenge to those in power is a massive rise in direct inflation. What is the quickest way to eliminate the political risks due to inflation? Shut down demand….. lock down the economies… turn the values closed on economic activity, and then watch oil prices plummet.

omicron-variant-1-1024x470.jpg


As the science is told, Omicron originated in South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi. Government officials around the world have responded to the Omicron variant by banning travel from those countries. The U.K and Australia kicked off the latest round of fear porn with their travel bans. Subsequently, fellow EU nations Austria, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Malta all announced imminent entry bans to all travelers who’ve entered South Africa and surrounding nations in the past two weeks.

In North America, Canada will be “banning the entry of foreign nationals…that have traveled through southern Africa in the last 14 days,” due to the new coronavirus variant Omicron, Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said at a news conference Friday. (link) And right on cue the Biden administration joins the effort:

WHITE HOUSE – “This morning I was briefed by my chief medical advisor, Dr. Tony Fauci, and the members of our COVID response team, about the Omicron variant, which is spreading through Southern Africa. As a precautionary measure until we have more information, I am ordering additional air travel restrictions from South Africa and seven other countries. These new restrictions will take effect on November 29. As we move forward, we will continue to be guided by what the science and my medical team advises.” (more)

biden-and-yellen.jpg


As if on cue, this happens:
The discovery of a new Covid-19 variant sent oil plummeting 13% on Friday, as investors feared a wave of new government restrictions and slower economic growth.

US crude finished the day at a two-month low of $68.15 a barrel, down 13.1% from Wednesday’s close. It was the worst day for oil since April 27, 2020, when Covid was spreading rapidly in the US. (link)

Under this type of economic manipulation using science, the U.S. federal government -and the multinational governments as a whole- recapture control of inflation.

As you know, the monetary policy to maintain an economic system beneficial to Wall Street and the multinational investment class means they need to keep interest rates low even as they print more money vis-a-vis the Build Back Better spending operation. {Go Deep} The primary way to control inflation is for central banks (U.S. Fed) to stop purchasing their own debt and/or raise interest rates. However, that approach would be against the interests of the multinational elites and international finance system (World Economic Forum agenda).

If you are a member of the political elite and worried about the electoral backlash from massively rising prices hitting your citizenry….. Another way to stop inflation is to shut down economic demand.

How do you shut down global economic demand
…. Omicron !!

See how that works?

As a result, we enter the 2022 mid-term election under a scenario where a new variant of COVID, Omicron, is now the reason for government rules (Vaxx, Vaxx, Vaxx), a slowed economy and a contraction of demand. Omicron becomes a justification and excuse for lowered economic expectations.

Simultaneously, inflation is artificially paused by using Omicron as a pressure valve, and the central bankers don’t have to worry about negative consequences to the multinational corporations who give them instructions.

Under this strategy, the electorate can be duped into reinstalling political ideologues, elites and communists. And guess what? The U.S. Energy Secretary doesn’t need to know what the price of a barrel of oil costs.
Don’t blame me, we just see this COVID variant stuff for what it is…. useful.

This ain’t their first rodeo.

It’s not clear yet whether the mutations make this variant more infectious or whether it causes more severe illness, but researchers say the high number of mutations to the “spike proteins” — the focus of a body’s immune response — may make it more able to get past the body’s defenses. (link)

At some point, they reach a Critical Mass...and old Klaus will have to rely on how valuable his old ass is, to whoever would have to take care of him.

When the dollar goes, the euro follows. Into the abyss. You level a society and its finances, you have to live with what comes of it.

I sure wouldn't want to be Klaus right now.

Buck, I have said for many years, that "professional ball players are underworked, overpaid, drug infested crybabies, that hold themselves above the law." But, but, what about college ball, you ask? I say that they are the "incubator" :gracious: :dduck::dduck::dduck:

that might be true in other sports but not the nfl. In the nfl almost all the funds go to the nfl not the team. Then the earnings are evenly distributed. so the smaller town teams are getting the same cut as the big city teams.

i'm not freaking out but i notice, a lot of the 'fundamentals', the base 'rules' we 'need to know', they're tossed out the window on days like these

everything down, literally everything, even the assets that are used to stabilize any risk, they fall too

it's not always been this way iirc...

interesting the name chosen,

as the original announcements was the name Nu from the greek alphabet, ie the next one in line,

but later on we now have the official name, and much more palatable to the masses than Nu,

'Omicron'

So perfectly modern, so science fiction like, that the name is a home run for them to run with it,

this one is special too, with long talons, talons so long that 'ole vaccine just cannot touch this baby,
super bug is going to get up in your face and take you to your resting place,

be afraid, be very afraid, of ....................Omicron

Are you questioning the "experts"? :rotf:
I watched an interview of two former Federal Reserve members from the past. Sorry I did not note their names. They both seemed very perplexed at how the things are being handled by the current Fed. They named all the things that should have been done and have not. They did not seem to understand we are being brought down by design after the raping and pillaging is done.
