Are you sure that they (congress) changed their rules governing insider trading by Senate/Congress? Because it although it was always illegal for the sheeple, I know that congress was immune from such peasant laws AND in fact were allowed to trade on insider information. I know, crazy shit!

I don't understand why anyone would be willing to accept that explanation.
Seems a lot of opinions on this message board accept it with out so much as a murmur of protest or argument against it.


Was it the pharmaceutical lobotomy?

No, contrary. Where have you been? This is common knowledge. Read Zero Hedge you can learn a little about the economy and how our laws protect the wealthy and elite not the common man. It's called awakening and I suggest you do it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78624985


I would prefer to be shown where exactly the code is that makes anyone think this is in any way acceptable or has even the thinnest shred of supposed legality.

I'm not gonna read zero-hedge propaganda about how I'm supposed to accept this as normal.

Why would I want to mentally enslave myself with defeatist propaganda? What am I a helpless child?

Nice try, but I resist tyranny. You should try that.

Well, seems quite a few sheeplebah are saying this is perfectly legal. I suppose that means to them that it's Constitutional. They don't even challenge it, seems perfectly fine and dandy to them.

Congress is exempted from Insider Trading laws. Always have been. That's how they get so rich over a short period of time making only $175K a year.
 Quoting: Festus Hoggbottom


Please cite the specific law.

Such a law, policy or elite judicial action would violate the equal protection clause of the United States Constitution.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13455469


What? You need someone to Google it for you?

Long story short: they were always immune from Insider Trading laws. Because of public outcry, they passed the STOCK act in 2011 to prohibit Insider Trading by members of Congress so the public could pat themselves on the back. The STOCK Act was recently revisited, and they gave themselves immunity. It's quite common that they exempt themselves from the very laws they happily impose on the rest of us. This one went a step further though since it was designed to apply only to them yet they still exempted themselves.

Hear me out.

This knowledge of the virus spreading was already public knowledge when they had a 'secret meeting'. I know a ton of people that dumped stocks before the crash because of this public knowledge. In fact, this is most likely why everything has been dumping, not because some congressmen sold off stock...

While I think our congressmen do some really shady stuff, IMHO this is one of the newest "MSM Talking points" to stir up trouble and get everyone worked up over.

Do the optics look good? Absolutely not. But I'm not sure this is a big of a deal as the MSM is making it to be. Remember the whole getting people stirred up because of using "Chinese Virus" thing isn't sticking well, they are just trying to make more division.

First it starts off with seeing how the ruling class has separate rules for themselves which don't apply to us. Secondly you will start realizing how mainstream media lies and does everything in its' power to crush dissent. Then you can wake up to the fact that many events are engineered to steer the population in a certain direction, whatever the agenda of the 1 percenters want it to go.

If this was the case, you wouldn't have seen the massive dumps in the markets when the news was coming out. This has nothing to do with Trump. It's smart investors who "Sold the news" all at once. Even a few friends that are smart with trading sold as soon as Wuhan started to lock people into their houses. This was done way before any secret congress meeting. Again, I think this is MSM getting people to go against each other again. Optics are horrible on this as members of congress sold off yes, but are you telling me it's not OK for them to do it but it was OK for everyone else to do it too? They weren't the ones that made the markets dump.

Honestly you're talking with an Anarcho-capitalist here. So if Congress dissolved tomorrow, I'd celebrate.
They are calling all kinds of tyrannical shots right now on the populace. I don't support any of it.
If you think the democrats or progressives don't do insider trading or whatever you are mistaken.
If insider trading should be made legal as some Libertarian people believe like those of the Austrian belief then it should be legal for all. And Martha Stewart is no where near the One percent.
Personally I like cryptocurrency.
