    That actually was the PM market up until relatively recently when physical prices decoupled entirely from paper spot prices, the usual small dealer premiums notwithstanding. The copper market is still a paper market first because it still relies on futures contracts to set the price. Those futures may or may not lead to taking possession of the physical. YMMV but I've concluded that all markets are rigged. It's just that we focus on monetary PMs markets and don't pay attention to commodities markets to identify manipulation there. Sounds like 'arbitrage' between markets. Or contango/backwardation within the same market. I'd argue that "reality" is whatever we're presented with.

    There is no "we" or "us" here. There is just an arbitrary collection of a third of a billion people artificially bound together under the same overweening polity. That is what inevitably results in these rankled obsessions over what "we" (or "they") can or can't claim/argue/say/admit/etc.

    Curioser and curioser - if there is no "gasoline shortage" nor any "major price hikes", then what's the point of talking about "price gouging" as a result of "shortages"? It's almost like they're just making this shit up as they go along ... https://twitter.com/USATODAY/status/1392186330025705475 1392186330025705475 "We will have no tolerance for price gouging." Translation: "We will have no tolerance for rational market responses."

    Definitely feasible, given that CP has had plenty of alt-media coverage, plus the circulation of that very disturbing info about the Debt Reset Program timeline, apparently leaked by a Canadian member of Parliament in Oct last year. That timeline sure has tracked closely to unfolding events. Too much exposure either leads to abandoning plans or fast-tracking them... (PM me if you haven't seen the Canadian info, I'll send the text to you)

    Biden definitely looks photoshopped into the Carter picture:rolleyes: Jill, alongside two very old people looks realistic enough. Joe's foot looks like it's hovering over the floor, not resting on it. Any way, this thread made me wonder about this recent news item: Secret Service wants White House replica for training because, Capitol riots, ya know https://thehill.com/policy/national-security/552146-secret-service-renews-calls-for-white-house-replica-for-training Think they're faking stuff now? Just wait until they have a fake WH. They probably already do though and this is an example of calling for something that's already happened, just to legitimize it.

    Good catch! The other weasel phrase is "The NIH isn't funding gain of function research in Wuhan China." Rand held his feet to the fire pretty good. The trick here is that the funding is going to researchers in the United States who then collaborate with their counterparts in China.

    Blaming price inflation on hackers and shortages is definitely in vogue these days. Whatever it is, it is most definitely not money printing and the dollar being dropped as global reserve currency. It's definitely not that. Don't ever look at bankers as the root cause. They're caught off-guard by all this as much as we are, for sure. I haven't read through all of your links but I assume you know that another Cyber Polygon exercise is scheduled for July 9th 2021.

    Sounds like a black market business opportunity in the making. Some pipe tobacco companies sell loose tobacco in 5 pound bales, including menthol flavored. A few cheap cig rolling machines. Sell loosys outside the gas station for a buck a piece. Just try not to get "Garnered"....

    I think everyone is misinterpreting what JPow means by "inflation is transitory". The definition of transitory that's being circulated is something like meaning it's short term or fleeting. If you look up the legal definition of the word transitory it has a somewhat nuanced but a clearly different meaning. According to Black's Law, transitory means to move from place to place. A nuanced difference but a difference nonetheless. I think the legal definition is being used by JPow and his ilk, not the more circulated definition of being of short duration. This would make more sense with how we are seeing inflation take hold, since it is appearing in sector after sector, not all at once. Housing first, then lumber, then food, then copper, etc etc until everything has eventually incorporated inflation. Whether it is short term has yet to be seen. Inflation is already moving "place to place" and better fits with the legal definition of transitory. A dollar crash, revaluation and reset under the new digital system would eventually mean inflation has ended, though, of course. That would make it inflation both "short term" and "place to place".

    Good point! I thought about that. I could see the police getting involved just on her roommates' report, but they couldn't legally charge him without a statement from the victim that it was rape. I'm not sure why that detail got left out of the news segment. But here's the chilling part. "And while the judge declared the student innocent, he's not out of the woods yet. He says he now has to prove himself to a USC ethics committee that will ultimately decide whether or not he can stay here for the fall semester."

    Obviously more. They were at a frat party. Clearly other people were there and someone could have stumbled upon the scene. I'm not sure why that matters anyway though. At the end of the day we have people engaging in what Working Poor considers immoral behavior. Either that negates their right to claim to be a victim or it doesn't. I was raised not to get drunk in the first place. I could say regarding any woman who got drunk and passed out at a frat party and got raped "Well if you had better morals and not gotten drunk it's unlikely you would have gotten drunk so don't play Ms. Victim." Whenever I hear any of these stories I think of "Wine is a mocker and strong dring is raging and whoever is deceived thereby is not wise." Proverbs 20:1. And considering that most college students are under 21, there was probably some underage drinking which is also illegal. All of them getting drunk was really the first mistake (or "moral failure" if you will) that led to others. There are men who have been convicted of rape who honestly don't remember having sex with the rape victim because they were so drunk and the woman was so drunk she couldn't give consent. Thankfully in this case all parties were sober enough to give consent so it wasn't rape. She just regretted it the next day because it was a turn off to the guy she really wanted to date. Now here's the kicker. Maybe if she and the black man she had accused of rape had gone to a hotel room by themselves and had more "respectable" sex, she still would have had to deal with the same consequences. I have known white men who didn't want to date white women who have had sex with black men. So even in that scenario there was still the possibility of a rape accusation. In the second video I posted, the man (he looks Indian) that was accused of rape was invited by the phony rape victim to her apartment. Still not biblically "moral", but far more socially acceptable these days than drunk group sex in a bathroom. You would be hard pressed to find a man today moral enough to turn down an attractive woman inviting him to her appartment, especially after he had a few drinks. (Again, don't drink.) It is no longer socially acceptable to say to a woman who is a rape victim in those circumstances "Well you had not business going to his apartment in the first place. What did you think was going to happen?"

    You didn't answer the question. I will ask it again. Let's say the story played out exactly the same, but then a third guy game in and said "Let me get some of that" and the girl said "No way" and then he proceded to rape her, would you say she was "playing Ms. Victim?" That is a yes or no question.
