Nasal Swabs Were Only The Beginning: China Rolls Out Anal Swab COVID Tests

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sent out a Civil Investigative Demand to 13 entities, including Robinhood and Citadel, regarding the “suspension of stock trading and investing” requiring higher margin reserves for trading certain companies and suspending chat platform activity.

Other names which were also issued CIDs include Discord, Robinhood Markets, Robinhood Securities, Interactive Brokers, TD Ameritrade, TD Bank, E-Trade, WeBull Financial, Public Holdings, M1 Holdings, Citadel Financial, and Apex Clearing.

“Wall Street corporations cannot limit public access to the free market, nor should they censor discussion surrounding it, particularly for their own benefit. This apparent coordination between hedge funds, trading platforms, and web servers to shut down threats to their market dominance is shockingly unprecedented and wrong. It stinks of corruption,” said Attorney General Paxton.

“I’m hopeful that these companies will step up and cooperate with these CIDs in order to clear any confusion over why stock purchases were forcibly closed and why even conversation around these stocks was silenced.”

In addition to public statements and internal documents, the CIDs request copies of all terms of service, policies related to content control and moderation, and communications between platforms and moderators of chat servers, including decisions to limit, control, or prevent access to the Discord r/WallStreetBets server.

      Well, ya know everything effects stock prices, especially political and geo-political talk, so that better be included in ending censorship as well! Not just for Texas either! As if they are not censoring covid and vax truth for price mannipulation, even if it is programmed trading, and even if it is in a blind trust! Bust the big pharma CEOs! The biggest frauds around! 

      Deplatform the censors! 

      Cancel Culture of Censorship!

      More Evidence of Targeted Assassinations! 

      Vaccines to Exterminate Seniors, to Save Corrupt Government Employees, University Professors, and the Medical Mafia! We Can’t Have 23 Million Overpaid Government Employees and Non Working Seniors! Would You Rather, Save Seniors, Or Continue to Overpay Corrupt, Incompetent, Lazy Government Employees That Refuse to Do Their Jobs and Abide by the Constitution?! 

      They Are the Persistence Which Must Be Met With Resistance!
      Their Lifesyles Are Crime Against Humanity! MICIMATT InfraGard Cult  of Corruption!

      CNA James, whose video the criminal psychopathic hacker prevented me from watching, has stated that people are dropping like flies from vaccines in the nursing home that James is employed in.

      As I have previously reported:

      Well, It sure as hell appears that the vaccines are killing many more people than they are reporting because on November 16, 2020 there were 2,487,350 annual total deaths until November 16,2020. Verses 2.7 million to 2.9 million total deaths per year between 2015 and 2019. On December 22,2021, they report that there have been 3.2 million total deaths in America. So, between November 16,2020, and December 22,2021 there were 712,650 deaths. So, once again, medical error is the third leading cause of death in America, but they are claiming that it is covid. It is their treatment and prevention of covid that is responsible for far more deaths than covid! Of course they claim that the Novemeber numbers might not be accurate, because it is nearly impossible for the government employees to be able to count to over two million and get it right the first time. That is just expecting far more from government employees than they are capable of doing!

        And over 20 million healthcare workers, many of whom are severely overpaid and lazy as hell. So many went into healtthcare because it pays well, not because they care about people’s lives, or health, as you can clearly see! Medical error third leading cause of death! The trend that just won’t end!

      A shooting occured at 3:00 pm today at Fox River Mall in Grand Chute, WI. today.

      It is unknown if there were any ijuries or casualties.

      Grand Chute is the hometown of Senator Joseph McCarthy, but it is also the largest unincorporated town in WI, with over
      22,000 people.

      Obviously, the government employees have a lot at stake across the state. There have been calls across the country to decentralize, leading to the incorporation of scores of previously unincorporated towns particularly on the East Coast. That is pretty fucking idiotic if you ask me!

      I would like to be mad and would be if I could stop smiling.

      it was a beautiful thing to see
      …the people joining forces (finally) fighting back and at the same time markets, have entered uncharted waters …the jig is up.

      Several hedge funds have already disavowed short selling after the Melvin massacre.

      IMHO tho anyone thinking this is the new norm is delusional.
      Reddit is under a microscope and the element of surprise
      was paramount to the squeeze.
      I wouldn’t be a bit shocked if Reddit isnt shut down by Russian hackers any minute now. /sarc

      All very intriguing but not enough to knock me off my strategy of slow and steady.

      as far as the #silversqueeze
      I’m holding and that is all.

        FreemanSteed says, “the element of surprise was paramount to the squeeze.”

        Influential corporatists often, barely, have any life skills.

        Assuming that you never set off any red flags within the trading platform, you would only have to surprise minnows and algos.

        Part of the misunderstanding, is that money is being made, rather than burned, here:

        • FreemanSteed says:

          algos predict by ruling out the impact of human emotions on trading activities.

          they (WS) are now listening to the Reddit chatter…aka predictive linguistics

          having your ass handed to you by a bunch of minnows is cause to set up straight and pay attention.

          Cliff High tried to tell the fools ummmm back in 2017?

      The only ostensible reason for a central bank, in the first place, was to prevent booms and busts.

      The monetary policy, which you are now trying to break, is what made your national currency the world’s reserve.

      Portnoy said,” This, now can go on forever.”

      “Itchy and Scratchy” theme:


      imhblo, finances are the distilled busywork, largess, and inertia of the great unwashed. Those, who will never spend nor reproduce responsibly, will always far outnumber those with impulse control.

      Wall Street corporations cannot limit public access to the free market, ” Does this apply tothe free market of ideas? Facebook, Instagram, Youtube?
