Tricky Tuesday – Futures Jacked Up During US Holiday to Fool Who?

This is total BS!

The S&P 500 is up 40 points (1%) since Friday's close and the Dow is up 300 points, etc. on NO news and NO trading – just some last minute window-dressing into the bell and after hours – when no one is actually trading.  This is what fund managers like Jim Cramer do when they need to sell their holdings – they create a false sense of excitement to lure the suckers into buying shares while the fund managers are dumping their overpriced holdings.  

And, by the way:  Since I pointed out how blatantly Jim Cramer used to manipulate the market in his confessional video back on January 29th, team Cramer has been busy redacting that video from the Internet.  Very 1984!  If you can't find the video – it never happened, right?  A text description survives on Seekeng Alpha (for now) but who knows how long it will last.  

Who controls the past, controls the future: who controls the present, controls the past… The mutability of the past is the central tenet of Ingsoc. Past events, it is argued, have no objective existence, but survive only in written records and in human memories. The past is whatever the records and the memories agree upon. And since the Party is in full control of all records, and in equally full control of the minds of its members, it follows that the past is whatever the Party chooses to make it. – Orwell 

Image result for control of the mediaI find this disturbing and you should find it disturbing but, unfortunately, to our kids – reality is only what Google says it is.  How many generations before, like 1984, there are no written records and the only past we can refer to can be erased at the whim of a censor – or simply because a "leader" like Donald Trump doesn't like what it says?  We're having that discussion now in Congress and we're losing the battle – but you wouldn't know you're losing the battle because the 6 Billionaires that control the media aren't interested in telling you that, are they?
