    CFTC Pulls Public Comments from JP Morgan Whistle-blower: “We Are Fearful of a Cascading Credit Event; Wide-Scale Market Collapse”

    One argument you’ll hear from the majority of Americans who refuse to wake up to the madness around them is that if there truly was an economic and financial cabal in cahoots with the government we would have heard about it. If this was actually happening, wouldn’t there be insiders from the private and public sectors that would have alerted us to the conspiracies? And wouldn’t the mainstream media report on it? And wouldn’t the Justice Department vigorously pursue and prosecute those responsible for the fraud, theft and manipulation?

    It turns out that there are whistle-blowers – hundreds of them. But any attack on the establishment is met with either a full-on counter-attack that targets the credibility of the individual bringing forth the information and marginalizes the content of the message by dismissing it as the ravings of a lunatic or disgruntled employee, or, it’s simply erased from public view by the very institutions tasked with investigating such activity.

    Yesterday, an open letter posted in the public comments section at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) by a self described JP Morgan insider and whistle-blower was removed in short order (no cache of the page exists, but it was briefly indexed by search engines). It was dead on arrival. A direct link to the letter now leads to an empty page in the hopes that it will never be seen by the 99% of Americans who tune in only to mainstream news sources for their daily dose of truth. Don’t worry, though, because if there’s one thing alternative news media learned from Orwell’s 1984 and real world experience, it’s that we should always expect the powers that be will attempt to rewrite history. As such, the full content of the post has been copied and archived for posterity’s sake by alternative media (and reprinted below).

    In the letter, the JP Morgan insider reveals that high level executives and traders at the bank are putting the investments and savings of thousands, if not millions, of hard working Americans at risk of complete, wide-scale market collapse through their machinations and fraudulent practices. Moreover, he suggests that executives at his bank are fully aware of commodity manipulations in which the bank engages, as well as the risks posed by a European collapse, an event that, according to the whistle-blower, will lead to annihilation of investments within a matter of days.

    Here is the full open letter (now removed from CFTC’s public comments), made available via Market Ticker and Modern Survival Blog:

    [Emphasis Added]

    From: Z A N
    Organization(s):
    JPMorgan Chase

    Comment No: 57019
    Date: 3/14/2012

    Dear CFTC Staff,

    Hello, I am a current JPMorgan Chase employee. This is an open letter to all commissioners and regulators. I am emailing you today b/c I know of insider information that will be damning at best for JPMorgan Chase. I have decided to play the role of whistleblower b/c I no longer have faith and belief that what we are doing for society is bringing value to people. I am now under the opinion that we are actually putting hard working Americans unaware of what lays ahead at extreme market risk. This risk is unnecessary and will lead to wide-scale market collapse if not handled properly. With the release of Mr. Smith’s open letter to Goldman, I too would like to set the record straight for JPM as well. I have seen the disruptive behavior of superiors and no longer can say that I look up to employees at the ED/MD level here at JPM. Their smug exuberance and arrogance permeates the air just as pungently as rotting vegetables. They all know too well of the backdoor crony connections they share intimately with elected officials and with other institutions. It is apparent in everything they do, from the meager attempts to manipulate LIBOR, therefore controlling how almost all derivatives are priced to the inherit and fraudulent commodities manipulation. They too may have one day stood for something in the past in the client-employee relationship. Does anyone in today’s market really care about the protection of their client? From the ruthless and scandalous treatment of MF Global client asset funds to the excessive bonuses paid by companies with burgeoning liabilities. Yes, we at JPMorgan that are in the know are fearful of a cascading credit event being triggered in Greece as they have hidden derivatives in excess of $1 Trillion USD. We at JPMorgan own enough of these through counterparty risk and outright prop trading that our entire IB EDG space could be annihilated within a few short days. The last ten years has been market by inflexion point after inflexion point with the most notable coming in 2008 after the acquisition of Bear.

    I wish to remain anonymous as of now as fear of termination mounts from what I am about to reveal. Robert Gottlieb is not my real name; however he is a trader that is involved in a lawsuit for manipulative trading while working with JPMorgan Chase. He was acquired during our Bear Stearns acquisition and is known to be the notorious person shorting in the silver future market from his trading space, along with Blythe Masters, his IB Global boss. However, with that said, we are manipulating the silver futures market and playing a smaller (but still massively manipulative) role in manipulating the gold futures market. We have a little over a 25% (give or take a percentage) position in the short market for silver futures and by your definition this denotes a larger position than for speculative purposes or for hedging and is beyond the line of manipulation.

    On a side note, I do not work directly with accounts that would have been directly impacted by the MF Global fiasco but I have heard through other colleagues that we have involvement in the hiding of client assets from MF Global. This is another fraudulent effort on our part and constitutes theft. I urge you to forward that part of the investigation on to the respective authorities.

    There is something else that you may find strange. During month-end December, we were all told by our managers that this was going to be a dismal year in terms of earnings and that we should not expect any bonuses or pay raises. Then come mid-late January it is made known that everyone received a pay raise and/or bonus, which is interesting b/c just a few weeks ago we were told that this was not likely and expected to be paid nothing in addition to base salary. January is right around the time we started increasing our short positions quite significantly again and this most recent crash in gold and silver during Bernanke’s speech on February 29th is of notable importance, as we along with 4 other major institutions, orchestrated the violent $100 drop in Gold and subsequent drops in silver.

    As regulators of the free people of this country, I ask you to uphold the most important job in the world right now. That job is judge and overseer of all that is justice in the most sensitive of commodity markets. There are many middle-income people that invest in the physical assets of silver, gold, as well as mining stocks that are being financially impacted in a negative way b/c of our unscrupulous shorts in the precious metals commodity sector. If you read the COT with intent you will find that commercials (even though we have no business being in the commercial sector, which should be reserved for companies that truly produce the metal) are net short by a long shot in not only silver, but gold.

    It is rather surprising that what should be well known liabilities on our balance sheet have not erupted into wider scale scrutinization. I call all honest and courageous JPMorgan employees to step up and fight the cronyism and wide-scale manipulation by reporting the truth. We are only helping reality come to light therefore allowing a real valuation of our banking industry which will give investors a chance to properly adjust without being totally wiped out. I will be contacting a lawyer shortly about this matter, as I believe no other whistleblower at JPMorgan has come forward yet. Our deepest secrets lie within the hands of honest employees and can be revealed through honest regulators that are willing to take a look inside one of America’s best kept secrets. Please do not allow this to turn into another Enron.

    Kind Regards,
    -The 1st Whistleblower of Many

    We wouldn’t bet on any of this actually being investigated by regulatory agencies, because according to President Obama and other politicians, nobody has committed any crimes.

    What we would bet on is that this anonymous whistle blower isn’t just blowing smoke. Given the recent revelations of other insiders like Greg Smith, a former Goldman Sachs executive director of their equities derivatives business, who warned this week of a toxic and destructive environment at the government’s leading bailout darling, we’re of the belief that JP Morgan is no different.

    The entire system is rigged, and they have most certainly done a great job of keeping it afloat and maintaining the illusion of stability in the eyes of the masses. One day, perhaps soon, the people will lose confidence in these firms and the government institutions that are complicit in their manipulations. When that happens, look out, because we’ve got decades of paper receipts and derivatives valued in the tens of trillions of dollars that will be shown to be worth absolutely nothing.

    When this ponzi scheme finally comes down it will be unlike anything we’ve ever seen in terms of economic collapse and financial asset annihilation.

        Best move you can make.

        I dumped Bank Of America a long time back, and my little credit union has done nothing but impress the hell out of me ever since – excellent interest rates (as far as bank accounts go), awesome customer service, ATM fee refunds for a certain number of out-of-network withdrawals per month (no, seriously!), and best of all? No pound-me-in-the-ass fees whenever their president feels like he needs a new yacht or Lamborghini (unlike the asshats at BoA).

        All in all? Credit Unions rock.

      if the corruption were removed
      they system would freeze and fall into COLLAPSE

      and the censorship does not surprise me
      I have experirenced it myself
      I have posted comments critical of the big banks on a
      financial site ,only to have the comments removed
      my comments and similar comments by other postors

      • satori, we welcome those comments here!

        and yes, i agree, if they were to stop the manipulations now the entire system would come unglued. Paulson, et. al. knew the deal in 2008…. martial law, tanks in the streets, collapse of our currency, and complete meltdown of equitis markets were prevented only because of the trillions in monetary printing and the coverup of the frauds. It’s nothing more than a stay of execution.

        The worst is yet to come.

            I agree with your but everytime I think something is about ready to collapse, the government or other entity figures out a way to hold it together a bit longer. When the system fails it will fail in a huge way. The government is and always has been a part of cover-ups.

          Hey Mac, I just had an experience. I read this JPM doc. either last night or the night before. I spoke to my wife about it and we thought it was better to go proactive and clear our Chase savings account and knock it down to a $1000 or so. So about 10:30am today I waltzed into Chase bank and got one of the service managers I know and we sat down and I said I wanted to clear our savings account and leave about a thousand in there and I wanted it in cash. Boy; this caused a disturbance in the force! Holy crap! It took them about 15 minutes to see if they had enough cash on hand. (It wasn’t a “real” big figure) But it must have been enough. They directed me over to a teller’s window way off onto the end where there was no one. The teller placed a cash counter on the counter by the window so I could see the count. It was counted and stacked it up but the funny thing was she asked me what I did for a living. I thought it was a funny question and asked why? She claimed she had to include it in a report. What report? To the Government or what? She said, I don’t know but probably so. I said; wait a minute, I thought that only deposits over $10,000 had to be reported? She claimed that all transactions over $10,000 had to be. I was kind of miffed. What the hell business is it of the government if I pull my savings account? This is a little intrusive. NO, this is a LOT of intrusive. But if you want to start a ruckus in a medium sized bank. Hand them s copy of that letter 1st whistleblower wrote. That guy I handed it to scanned it and I could see it in his face, OH SHIT! He read it hard and said we haven’t heard anything about this. And I don’t believe he had either. But I will bet it will be a topic of discussion after the close of business today.

            I knew withdrawls of cash over $10 K were reported. Boy did I screw up on Wednesday afternoon. I deposited just over 10 K not thinking that a deposit was a problem. “What is your phone number? Please verify the last 4 digits of your SS number. What do you do for a living? Please verify your current address.” I can’t recall the rest of the questions, but I was uncomfortable. It was a cash deposit along with a transfer of money from savings into checking so that I would have enough to pay for my GOOD vehicle. Learn from my mistake folks.

            In January 2012, I went into a Chase branch and asked to withdraw $4000 savings in 20-dollar bills. It was as if I was asking for their first-born child. It took over 15 minutes and got me numerous glares. The teller had to get her manager because she said “I’m not sure we’ve got that right now.” I left feeling sheepish and realized that if 5 people were doing the same thing as I was, they couldn’t be served, and it could possibly scare people into a run on the bank.

            I have found even amounts as low as $5000 have begun to be a problem when withdrawn or deposited. I now try to space my money withdrawals out over several days or go to several locations. $1000 per day over one to two weeks creates a pattern and appears to soothe them into seeing this as routine while moving $5000 in one swoop (even if it is for legitimate purposes) seems to create panic.

            I bought some Euros at our bank in 2005 as an investment. The teller went into someone’s office, and then someone else came out of that office and started chit-chatting with me, asking me where were we going, assuming we were going on vacation. It was really none of her business what I was doing with the Euros, so I told her we hadn’t decided yet (because we WERE thinking about going somewhere).
            I went back last week and sold them back, for a $300 profit. This time I was asked where I went, but it didn’t seem as big a deal since I was bringing them back.

            I took out some not very ‘large’ amounts of cash from my bank, here in England. I had to give them two days notice, and I was asked the same thing, “what do you want the money for?” First time I said, “none of your business” She wrote it on her little form. Second time I took out funds sufficient for them to ask what I wanted it for, I said, “Drugs and prostitution” She was about to write down what I said, then decided to just leave it blank. Who do these people think they are? My mother, and I’m a child? It’s MY F…ing money, and they have been borrowing it from me, now I want it back, and they think they have a right to know what I will do with my money. Makes me angry.

            I’ve read Orlov’s books too and have seen a couple of his presentations. I love that he is very realistic; no sugarcoating, no smoothing edges, just reporting as a matter of fact. But at the same time it’s all calm and there is no fear mongering. Kind of like: these are the facts; don’t panic; change your thinking, adapt, decide what you can do post SHTF, and don’t forget to breathe.
            He also has a dry sense of humor that, I feel, people sometimes miss in presentations, but will see it in the books.

          Bruce and all, I have a theory (shared by others such as Stoneleigh over at The Automatic Earth) that as times get worse, and people keep stocking up on silver, a point will be reached when people will have to USE that silver. Because they didn’t invest in a garden, chickens, etc. “Oh, I’ll just buy food etc. with silver” they’ll say. So silver will flood the market. A loaf of bread won’t cost a silver dime, it will cost a silver quarter. Then a silver dollar. Eventually things will revert to the historical ratio: a loaf of bread for a silver dime/denarius, a good suit of clothes for an oz. of gold. But in the meantime, there will be, essentially, MZB’s all over the place DEMANDING you trade your food for their useless glittery metal. “It’s silver!! You HAVE to sell me food!!” etc.

          This is why I don’t have any silver, actually. I think I have $10 worth of platinum (wire) around here somewhere. I guess my silver-solder would count as silver.

          Right now .22 rounds are 50 to a silver dime. But for getting dinner in the coming dark ages, I’d rather have ONE of those than a silver dime.

            In 1933, roughly 1/3rd of the gold was confiscated. 1/3rd.

            This time around, the government will be facing armed resistance if they try to confiscate gold or silver for that matter. People who are collecting are angry, paranoid, and they blame the government for this mess and all appeals to the government for reasonable fixes are ignored.

            This isn’t the government we had in 1933. If the dollar collapses, who is going to willing trade in their metals for another empty promise from this government that lied us into Iraq and is violating our fundamental civil rights while carrying on this insane, and immoral, foreign policy?

        The elite are propping up the stock market manos. They know when it will drop AND THEY WILL ALL EXIT RIGHT BEFORE THE CATASTROPHIC DROP. Plus, all the money printing the Fed is doing is propping it up.

        Another blog I read has been warning that gold is about to drop for the next 30 days but it will go back up. Here is a quote from suvivalblog.

        “Keep in mind that we are still staring down barrel of a big, albeit brief pullback in the precious metals and equities in next 30 days, as margin calls will likely cascade from CDS derivatives fallout. Buy on the dips!”

        Here’s a good article on it too. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/guest-post-time-accumulate-gold-and-silver

        Do not panic, hold on to your precious metals. You’ll be glad you did.

            Probably it will make the payment. I don’t think it would change anything.
            The purpose is not for Greece to go bankrupt (or any “Greece”).
            What they want is the gradual enslavement of the global population.
            When they saw that all measures succeeded, their next step is to implement them wherever they think it will serve their purposes.
            This economic war is totally different. First of all, people cannot absorb of what is happening. Then they don’t have means to resist or fight back.
            Guns or killings won’t solve the problem. You cannot shoot all banksters, and surely you cannot shoot the ones who are responsible.
            One could blame Greeks as cowards. But history has proved that it’s not like that. We fought hard even if we didn’t have technological superiority on our side.
            The problem is global and much more complicated than it seems.
            But D.K. is right; even if we pay, it wouldn’t change a think.

            take care guys.

        Truth is…the markets are all manipulated and have been for years. Dafed has injected liquidity into the major banks through the the working group on financial markets. This same event occurred in Wiemar Republic in 1921 where the stock market nominal value increased with inflation.
        The same happened in Zimbabwe in the 2006-2008. Now it’s global.
        Just remember, paper will always return to it’s intrinsic value, Nothing. No nation in history has ever been able to pay off their debt when deficits exceed 80% of GDP. Never.

        The ultimate investment is what I call “Nature economics”. Think about it, living things only work because of Nature’s extremely high return rates. One chicken has 15 chicks a year, half of those each can have 15 chicks a year…. Or you take one seed and plant it and grow a plant that can have 1000′s. I paid $1 for a packet of fava bean seeds a year ago, planted them a couple of months back, and I’ll have a row of fava bean bushes that will provide many meals.

        Nina, er, Bruce, I realized that when I lost everything in the financial crash. As far as the gov’t and gov’t-like institutions were concerned, I was now supposed to be homeless, unemployable, etc. Life-expectancy as a homeless person is lower than being on Death Row. Taking that to its logical conclusion, the powers that be had essentially given me a death sentence to be carried out faster than average.

        And why did I not die within 5 years, shivering under a bridge? Friends. The People. The people talked about in “We The People” in the Constitution. The commonweal. What the Russians call Narod. The sea of people one swims like a fish in.

        Not people paying for stuff for me and taking me on as a burden, but people enabling me to work, and to help them as well as help myself. A guy with land who needs a watchman saying “Come over here, here’s an old wreck of a trailer with a leaky roof and leaky walls)!), here’s a few boxes of “household” I got at a garage sale, you’re free to fix it up and live in it, and BTW, watch the place and feed the cats”. The few colleagues from my old line of work to whom I was the same guy, and as trustworthy as ever.

      To be a whistle blower you have to be someone in a position of first hand, provable facts of criminal acts. Not someone espousing a personal, and somewhat widely held. conspiracy theory. YOU also have to have the balls to stand up in public like Smith and make the charge.

          Montana State Senator Bruce Tutvedt, who is running for re-election, stood up at the March 2 Pachyderm meeting in Kalispell to tell the audience,

          “We are NOT constitutionalists. We are NOT freedom-fighters.”

          He should have added, “We are the establishment.”

          Tutvedt made his statement only one week after Chuck Baldwin spoke to the same Pachyderm Club about our Constitution. Tutvedt’s Republican challenger, Rollan Roberts II, was in the audience and had just been introduced by Rep. Derek Skees.

          The great divide in the Republican Party is becoming very clear as Establishment candidates openly declare they are not Constitutional candidates.

      I have acted as a whistle blower one time, long ago. I do not know if I would have the fortitude to do it again. I had to leave my job as a result and almost every person I considered a friend deserted me.

      It was a great lesson in human nature. People who would privately complain about abuses taking place would immediately shut up if anyone in authority began talking to them. The abuses within the system became invisible.

      Getting someone in a postion of authority to speak up is even more difficult. The higher one goes up the ladder, the more the person stands to lose. Very few people who are of the type of personality to reach the top in one of these organizations would be the type of person to risk such a loss.

    30. What does a cascading economic crisis look like? Well, I think it goes a little something like this.

      Stage 1) The sheeple catch wind of a major leak that the assets they are supposed to own and being held in the vaults of JP Morgan and the like, don’t exist. They hear a widespread rumor that JP Morgan had leveraged their gold and silver 100 pieces of paper to 1 ounce of metal at the very least. This causes a run by these sheep demanding physical delivery. The panic run begins.

      Stage 2) In response, JP Morgan knowing it does not possess the physical assets, offer paper FRNs to their clients.

      Stage 3) The result of Stage 2 is met with disdain as people become restless with the idea of trading one piece of paper for another. This creates a massive run up on gold and silver as brokers struggle to meet physical delivery demands.

      Stage 4) The massive spiking in gold and silver prices of PHYSICAL METAL ONLY creates a separation between the paper price and the physical price. The physical prices then begin to rise out of reach.

      Stage 5) The disconnect between paper and metal causes a panic dump on all paper assets in the PM market. This starts a cascade into other futures markets and commodities driving the demand for physical delivery and the dumping of even more paper.

      Stage 6) Eventually the paper becomes completely worthless and all confidence in the market is all but lost. This panic now finally gets reported by the mainstream as there is no more ignoring it.

      Stage 7) A run on everything. Grocery stores empty, banks holiday and the currencies of all the world begin a rapid decline as public confidence is lost in fiat paper. The real value of tangible items begins to come to reality.

      Stage 8) With the currency collapsing commerce comes to a halt, trucks stop hauling, ships stop transporting and trains stop on the tracks. The jig is up.

      The above is just one possible series of events. The fiat world we live in is very fragile right now. Any number of things or combination of confidence related things can cause this chain reaction. The dominoes are set up for the rally and ready to fall. All that is required is the right catalyst, such as the one described by this whistle blower. When people finally figure it out, it’s time to look the fuck out.

      This is scenario may sound like madness, but look what a simple margin call did to 1929. This time, the shit is global.

        At Stage #3 Uncle Sam one way or the other (Executive Order or Fast Track through House and Senate) forbids the buying, selling or hoarding of gold, silver diamonds or whatever. It’s stated that “only the rich” benefit from that; rewards are given for turning in those not in compliance.

        A price freeze is announced. The ignorant rejoice, “we have a leader for the little people, praise our leader, praise our leader”. Shortly after the shelves are bare. Now comes the underground economy and paying off authorities for looking the other way and protection becomes common place.

        • You’ve got a good point. However, if this happens in hours or just a few days, it may escape their grasp completely. Just because they act like a bunch of arrogant pricks that can predict the future and pass laws to head us off at the pass, doesn’t mean things cannot get out of their control too. If a scenario were to play out expeditiously, then I think there would be no time. If they had weeks to gear up for it, they could possibly stop it and we end up at the end of your underground economy scenario.

          Who knows for sure. I’m betting on both sides of this coin though. Either way, these thieving liars can kiss my ass. I’m not playing their crooked game of 3-card Monte.

      There is very good evidence silver and gold markets are being manipulated to keep the small time short term buyers out. The most likely suspects are the megabilionaires like Soros and the longstanding private owners of the Fed, among others. By stepping in and causing volatility from time to time, overwhelming a relatively small trading market with fractions of their holdings, they drive the small investor out. The small guy reasonably wishes to avoid losing all their investments. This is impossible of course, as gold and silver are the last repository of monetary value.

      LYou can bet that the manipulators are holding tight to their vast stores of precious metals as  they know when the market will turn up. Because they control it.

      The solution to this all is your mindset. Buy physical gold and silver for long term hold as as when the dollar collapses, the money metals will retain value. Don’t buy these metals for short term gain and you will never worry about market gyrations. It’s like buying a home. You pay off the mortgage and live in it. What do you care about its market price? It’s a place to live.

      There’s a ceiling to everything, and that ceiling was probably reached in 2008, and they just raised it a little higher. Eventually though it just cannot continue and it seems like with all financial systems of the past, a “nice” war type economy is the only answer. People should be getting ready for the next large regional war in the Middle East that could, probably, become a third world war. Just look at history, how war was used to try to save economies.

      Look at how a coventional war would benefit those in the financial world. War hides all sorts of misdoings and illegal garbage because everyone is focused on something that is much more important than the stock markets. Unfortunately a conventional war is more than likely to go nuclear and then it is game over.

      Sites like this and many other fine sites are so valuable because they get people that want to get ready, more prepared. You read the debacle of the economy and you just want to go out and buy up more supplies because you know what is going to happen. Imagine buying a can of food now at $1, then after an economic collapse and that same can now cost $15 or more, if they even accept cash money.

      Now, for the Really Important News Of The Day…

      Actor/Activist and all-around A-word type person, George Clooney was arrested in DC yesterday. Clooney was cuffed and hauled off along with several other people while demonstrating outside the Sudanese embassy. Most of the protesters said they wanted to get the gov of Sudan to stop trampling the rights of its citizens. In a show of solidarity with the Sudanese, Washington decided to trample a few of its own. Clooney, however, was not actually part of the rights protest. He said he’d mistakenly gone to the wrong embassy. He meant to be a few block to the east, protesting, in his words “Something REALLY important and having to do with dolphins…or maybe whales…yeah, that’s it. The whales need me! I’m the only one who can save them!…” Clooney’s lawyer said he’d have a more in-depth, and hopefully, coherent, statement to make later.

      Former presidential candidate John Edwards has been ordered to repay about a zillion dollars to the US election commission. The feds, who gave him matching funds, say he shouldn’t have kept the money once his campaign was ended. In a related story, 7 South carolina hairdressers are suing to force the return of his hair.

      Speaking of disgraced politicians with famous hair, former Illinois governor Rod ‘The Chicago Blowdryer’ Blagojovich spent his first night in federal prison last night. Reporters from around the world were on hand this morning to try and get a photo of him. However, the prison warden, Sam ‘Failure To Communicate’ Krenshaw, decided to spare Blago the ultimate humiliation. Oh, hell bunk with Bubba and Tyrone. And he’ll clean the toilets. And he’ll be paid the same 12 cents an hour the others get. What he won’t do, is ever be photographed with morning hair. Said Krenshaw, “It would just be too much. Plus we don’t want the trouble and expense of putting him on suicide watch.”

      And finally, the Obama magic appears to be back. Or is it? At a rally yesterday, a woman fainted as the prez was speaking. Initially it was attributed to the excitement of the event, or even the return of Obamas spellbinding charisma. As it turns out, the dems were taxing oxygen and the woman simply ran out of money…

      What is slowly dawning on all of us is that the banking system is one vast ‘skimming’ operation that has been in operation since the banks gained control of money. Let us be clear that the sole objective of their operation is the skimming off of value from the rest of us. The people that actually creates real value. The banks, especially, the investment banks add no value and the reality is that they destroy value real through various organisations (IMF, World Banks, etc) and mechanisms such as privatisations, leveraged buy outs, various bubbles, market manipulation, etc, to steal public assets and the ‘commons’. They have their own economic dogma in the idiot economics of the Chicago School and that clown Friedman – trickle down, supply side, markets are always operate effectively, etc. While they are doing this they are rewarding (stealing) themselves obscene salaries and commissions and effectively pissing on us all from on high. Ironic isn’t it that they reward themselves for stealing while in reality they destroy value.

      They (the banks) are totally parasitic and it is ‘class’ above us all that are enriching themselves at our expense. How many decent companies have been destroyed by leveraged buyout that were enables by ‘vapour’ money created from thin air by these dangerous clowns. Not just in the sense of destroying value but now fermenting the potential collapse of society.

      The real depth of the deceit is not fully visible to us as it is hidden in the shadow banking system and off balance sheet – this includes hundreds of Trillions of dollars of useless and meaningless derivatives along with trillion in debt through the collusion of the Federal Reserve and the banks. I would suggest that if all this was totted up for the US it would make Greece look positively financially prudent. The illusion of stability is starting to break down, cannot be hidden by the manipulated media anymore and eventually the fiat currency – the dollar will collapse.

      Personally, I don’t think there will be an ‘orderly’ transition to a ‘new’ system. More like a profound and systemic collapse. Would not be too concerned about asteroids and other natural events as I think we are quite capable as a species of creating the circumstance for our eventual demise.

      I don’t understand these things. That said, I suspect the Fed has pumped liquidity into the banks, which have in turn bought securities, thereby propping up the stock market, and federal debt, thereby helping to hold down interest rates on the national debt. The money used to do this did not result from productivity, but was created out of thin air. Inflation results. The fed cannot increase interest rates to combat inflation without weakening the banks, increasing the deficit, and reducing business activity so the government lies about the true rate of inflation. In my mind, there is clearly collusion between the banks, the trading houses, and the government. The biggest financial losses in history and no major prosecutions? Possibly because the biggest crooks are the ones writing the laws. All we can do about it is to buy real assets to provide for our families and avoid getting scammed in the markets. I don’t know how it ends, but I fear those in the know will pull out fast and hard if they sense trouble. Individual investors will be left holding the bag.

      For reasons like this the government needs to control the internet. If the public presumes that the investors managing their money are crooks, working for crooks that get information from crooks they may choose to discontinue investing. At that point the system collapses. It is therefore vitally important that information that can damage the economy be contained for the good of the people.

        The establishment needs the election process to pacify the masses into believing they have self government. The more people supporting their guy as opposed to your guy the better. A true yardstick measure of discontent is not a high voter turnout but rather an extremely low turn out. It’s “The People” informing their masters that we now realize that we do have have any political control.

        It will take another four years for the banks to de-leverage. That’s Uncle Ben’s SHTF Plan and his estimate of how long it will take to work through it.

        He thinks that will work if the shit doesn’t hit the fan and the creek don’t rise.

      I on one hand WANT the banks to implode, so hopefully the corruption and big gubmint gets wiped out. But on the other hand, I believe we will be in a world of $hit, the people who are in power are going to lash out at us and our freedoms(MORE), and the unprepared sheople will lash out and make a bad situation worse. To quote a movie-”its all a big shit sandwich, and we are all gonna have to take a big bite” I know I’m pointing out the obvious, just sayin.

      I hear and read “it just cannot continue” or “kick the can down the road a little further” but here we are down the road and nothing has changed. Another whistleblower shouts and all I hear is silence.

      Believe it or not there was a time when people had a moral code of ethics. People that would ruin a man’s pension for gain have no conscience. This is what happens when people answer to the gov instead of God.

      This mistake so many make is this: they believe their will be a ‘surprise!!’ event that will catch the government off guard and the whole system will collapse. It doesn’t work like that.

      The government has all the cards in the deck. Think about it: the alphabit soup agencies (CIA, NSA, DOD etc.), the Fed Bank, the endless other regulatory and financial entities, and they all serve to keep the system ticking over.

      The government has immense powers in a financial crisis. It can impose currency and capital controls. It can confiscate metals and any other thing being used as a substitute store of wealth that rivals what the government is printing. It can arrest, lock-up or execute and disappear anyone who offers resistance. Society is too fractured along every line imaginable – race, ethnicity, income, education, professional status, city, neighbourhood – to offer mass resistance. Those days are gone.

      All you can do as an individual is hedge your bets. Be creative and quick-thinking. Adapt to the times and build in resiliance. Leave the big picture stuff to events.

        Yes, society is fractured, and that is why it will be chaos. Too many groups will be fighting for their piece of the pie, but there’s not enough for all. Don’t look back at the 30′s and think this collapse will be similar. We’re in uncharted waters this time.

      The Whistle blower is absolutely correct, I had my life savings in the silver market w a 3 to 1 leveraging w JPM Chase, then in early May 2011 they shorted the mkt in Hong Kong while NY Stock exchange was closed, so silver went from 50 to 26, so when NY stock exchange reopened on Monday it created havoc with all invested in silver by causing a Cash Call, thus I lost everything, my brokerage claims there is a law suit going against JPM, for what they did was illegal, but who’s going to stand up to them, wont be our Government for sure.

      Dear CFTC Staff,

      Hello, I am a current JPMorgan Chase employee.

      This is an open letter to all commissioners and regulators. I am emailing you today b/c I know of insider information that will be damning at best for JPMorgan Chase. I have decided to play the role of whistleblower b/c I no longer have faith and belief that what we are doing for society is bringing value to people. I am now under the opinion that we are actually putting hard working Americans unaware of what lays ahead at extreme market risk. This risk is unnecessary and will lead to wide-scale market collapse if not handled properly. With the release of Mr. Smith’s open letter to Goldman, I too would like to set the record straight for JPM as well. I have seen the disruptive behavior of superiors and no longer can say that I look up to employees at the ED/MD level here at JPM. Their smug exuberance and arrogance permeates the air just as pungently as rotting vegetables. They all know too well of the backdoor crony connections they share intimately with elected officials and with other institutions. It is apparent in everything they do, from the meager attempts to manipulate LIBOR, therefore controlling how almost all derivatives are priced to the inherit and fraudulent commodities manipulation. They too may have one day stood for something in the past in the client-employee relationship. Does anyone in today’s market really care about the protection of their client? From the ruthless and scandalous treatment of MF Global client asset funds to the excessive bonuses paid by companies with burgeoning liabilities. Yes, we at JPMorgan that are in the know are fearful of a cascading credit event being triggered in Greece as they have hidden derivatives in excess of $1 Trillion USD. We at JPMorgan own enough of these through counterparty risk and outright prop trading that our entire IB EDG space could be annihilated within a few short days. The last ten years has been market by inflexion point after inflexion point with the most notable coming in 2008 after the acquisition of Bear.
      I wish to remain anonymous as of now as fear of termination mounts from what I am about to reveal. Robert Gottlieb is not my real name; however he is a trader that is involved in a lawsuit for manipulative trading while working with JPMorgan Chase. He was acquired during our Bear Stearns acquisition and is known to be the notorious person shorting in the silver future market from his trading space, along with Blythe Masters, his IB Global boss. However, with that said, we are manipulating the silver futures market and playing a smaller (but still massively manipulative) role in manipulating the gold futures market. We have a little over a 25% (give or take a percentage) position in the short market for silver futures and by your definition this denotes a larger position than for speculative purposes or for hedging and is beyond the line of manipulation.

      On a side note, I do not work directly with accounts that would have been directly impacted by the MF Global fiasco but I have heard through other colleagues that we have involvement in the hiding of client assets from MF Global. This is another fraudulent effort on our part and constitutes theft. I urge you to forward that part of the investigation on to the respective authorities.

      There is something else that you may find strange. During month-end December, we were all told by our managers that this was going to be a dismal year in terms of earnings and that we should not expect any bonuses or pay raises. Then come mid-late January it is made known that everyone received a pay raise and/or bonus, which is interesting b/c just a few weeks ago we were told that this was not likely and expected to be paid nothing in addition to base salary. January is right around the time we started increasing our short positions quite significantly again and this most recent crash in gold and silver during Bernanke’s speech on February 29th is of notable importance, as we along with 4 other major institutions, orchestrated the violent $100 drop in Gold and subsequent drops in silver.

      As regulators of the free people of this country, I ask you to uphold the most important job in the world right now. That job is judge and overseer of all that is justice in the most sensitive of commodity markets. There are many middle-income people that invest in the physical assets of silver, gold, as well as mining stocks that are being financially impacted in a negative way b/c of our unscrupulous shorts in the precious metals commodity sector. If you read the COT with intent you will find that commercials (even though we have no business being in the commercial sector, which should be reserved for companies that truly produce the metal) are net short by a long shot in not only silver, but gold.

      It is rather surprising that what should be well known liabilities on our balance sheet have not erupted into wider scale scrutinization. I call all honest and courageous JPMorgan employees to step up and fight the cronyism and wide-scale manipulation by reporting the truth. We are only helping reality come to light therefore allowing a real valuation of our banking industry which will give investors a chance to properly adjust without being totally wiped out. I will be contacting a lawyer shortly about this matter, as I believe no other whistleblower at JPMorgan has come forward yet. Our deepest secrets lie within the hands of honest employees and can be revealed through honest regulators that are willing to take a look inside one of America’s best kept secrets. Please do not allow this to turn into another Enron.

      Kind Regards,
      -The 1st Whistleblower of Many”
