Re: Four Senators Dumped Millions In Stock After Closed-Door Coronavirus Briefings – They Face Up To 20 Years In Prison
I don't see how dumping stocks that are losing it's value rapidly is insider trading. It's been obvious that stocks in the resort, airline, hotels, etc are rapid dropping in value. The writing is all over the wall and has been since January. If I had stocks like that, I'd dump them too before losing even more money. How is losing millions in the stock market insider trading? I guess I'm not seeing it.
 Quoting: Major Doom


I don't, either. CV19 was public knowledge way back in January (possibly earlier, that's just when I clued into it). Heck, I went, "This might not end well," which prompted me to purchase N95 masks and preps - and sell almost all of my stocks. I don't see how anyone could convict on these people selling stocks on the hunch that the economy might be impacted by CV19 when it was in the news for public consumption - despite them having meetings over it. This is just a witch hunt.
 Quoting: GA Girl



You don't understand how having inside information and basing not only your own personal financial decisions on it, but CREATING PUBLIC DECISIONS that makes the general public's situation much worse financially and otherwise, is wrong. You don't understand this?

In a decent society, which we are not, all of these people would AND SHOULD, be executed. I mean this LITERALLY. This would not be tolerated in a society where public officials actually were expected to have a duty to work in the PUBLIC'S INTEREST and not in their OWN, which is what they've done.
 Quoting: Blue State Rebel


Then, by your logic, GA Girl should be literally executed for "insider trading" because she saw the writing on the wall, connected the obvious dots, and dumped stocks that were sure to lose value. I always thought people use insider trading to gain profit, not lose money. Even in late January, people were saying all over the media to look to Italy for what will happen here. It just doesn't make any sense that public officials should NEVER look out for their own interests as well. Should they neglect their families, their health, their financial solvency, etc? Should they leave all of their investments alone while in office and should they willingly lose everything that they have because it is in the public's interest for them to suffer for the people?

The media piece's make it sound like they were profiting in the millions but the reality was they were losing their investments. Look at what the DJIA has been doing and look at the billions of dollars in stocks that have been rapidly sold off. Should the other people who dumped stocks, every single one of them, be executed too because they caused the Dow to collapse? While you are at it, do you think the President should be executed too as his family has sold losing stocks too?

You’re right

The government you speak of in the public eye, they’re the puppets

Whores for campaign contributions and kickbacks from neighborly nepotism to emoluments

Why hasn’t the President written an executive order making it illegal for government employees to conduct “INSIDER TRADING” like its illegal for civilians?

That isn’t a loophole, that’s the crumbs TPTB give their puppets

Watch how Trump allows HIS government to invest in the medical companies making the tests and developing the vaccines

It’s so obvious now that it’s offensive to anyone with common sense

Oh yeah I forgot this is GLP

My bad
 Quoting: wYw 76933769


I wrote about this over 2 weeks ago

The President’s supposed sworn enemy is still allowed to conduct illegal insider trading with not one executive order to return the power back to We The People to restore the Bill Of Rights but if you and I were to have done this we would be in FEDERAL PRISON for a decade

2 weeks later and it’s almost like I predicted the future again

The comment above IS from my thread below

I understand how things work. That does not make the legal or Constitution.

What help criminals get away with such elitism however, is propagating the notion that it is acceptable or lawful.

I can see through your disguise.

How does it feel to promote acceptance of tyranny? Is that your job?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13455469


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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78624985


Well, you wouldn't need capital in anarchy, the economy would basically be theft. However I can see how identifying as an anarchist might be a reaction to an unlawful cabal running the world your whole life.

I can't see how it would make you promote the idea that elitism is legal. By doing so you bow to an authority. Perhaps you need to re-examine just exactly what your ideology is.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13455469


anarchy is actually not violent.An=without archy-rule. That's all it means. Theft exists now in our current system all around us and government is the main perpetrator of it.
Capital is anything of value not just paper money. Of course it would exist and always has. The free trade of capital in open markets is part of a truly free society.
Great article here: [link to mises.org (secure)]
Fair Use:
"Unlike minarchism, anarcho-capitalism makes no unreasonable expectations of the public. The minarchist has to figure out how to persuade the public that even though the state has the raw power to redistribute wealth and fund cute projects everyone likes, it really shouldn’t. The minarchist has to explain, one at a time, the problems with each and every conceivable state intervention, while in the meantime the intellectual class, the universities, the media, and the political class combine against him to convey the very opposite message."
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78624985


Anarchy is the state of extreme liberty, in such a situation there is no state.

Standing against wealth redistribution is called conservatism, and that includes personal and corporate welfare. I think there is one conservative in the Senate, perhaps a few in the House.

Looks like an attempt to relabel conservative Constitutional Libertarians as anarchists, for the purposes of portraying Constitutionalists as extremists.

I don't know GA Girl....is she a public official, especially a Federal official, who was informed of these problems in a secret meeting back in January and then sold all her stocks as a result, and did NOT SHARE this information with the public that she has been hired and paid to serve?

Yes, by all means, if she's one of those, YES, she should be tried and executed. POLITICIANS IN OFFICE ARE PUBLIC SERVANTS AND THEIR FIRST DUTY IS TO SERVE THE PUBLIC AND HELP US. That is why they are there. And if they use that position to enrich or aid themselves and to harm or ignore us or not provide us with info we need, THEY SHOULD PAY FOR THAT. And I personally would have them executed if I were in charge.

I'm pretty damn draconian and I agree with the ancient Romans who used to throw their officials who were guilty of bribery or other crimes into a bag filled with cats, that they'd sew up and throw into the Tiber. That sounds about right to me.

Re: Four Senators Dumped Millions In Stock After Closed-Door Coronavirus Briefings – They Face Up To 20 Years In Prison
I don't get it. This issue has been in the news since January, at least. Anybody with brains went, "Hmmm, new virus, very contagious, killing people at an unprecedented rate...I had better get out of the market and stock up on N95s and groceries." Just saying...how can this be insider trading when it was in the news? Just because congress people had briefings and meetings shouldn't mean they must go down with the ship financially and lose everything they've spent their lives building.

Insider trading - purchasing based on meetings and information. Selling specific stocks based on meetings and information. Not putting yourself in a better financial situation given well-known world events. If that were the case, they would all be guilty of it. "Oh, the stock market is going up because of the latest economic reports on the news, but I cannot buy because I was in a meeting regarding the economy." That's bullshit and a witch hunt.
 Quoting: GA Girl


I got out of the market at the same time ...

WHY?

Because Wuhan had been shut down followed by that entire industrialized part of China, the Chinese Supply Chain was now broken ... and DUH, it WAS going to affect American Companies!!

I guess most posting onthis thread today today were NOT reading GLP back in January and early Feb when multiple posts were being made talking about how the Chinese shutdown WAS going to affect the US economy, with a few weeks lag.

Selling one's stock in late January early February did NOT require any super secret US Government Info. All one needed was TWO WORKING BRAIN CELLS ... or ... for those who lack that, JUST READING GLP for those several weeks until the market broke.


I didn't realize how many NEW POSTERS GLP had acquired over the last week or so who hadn't read any of those many posts in January and February about how badly the China shutdown was going to affect the US economy. I am glad GLP's growth of readers here has been so great!!!

Stick around NEW people ... you might learn something GLP ... before the sheeple figure it out!!

Re: Four Senators Dumped Millions In Stock After Closed-Door Coronavirus Briefings – They Face Up To 20 Years In Prison
I don't see how dumping stocks that are losing it's value rapidly is insider trading. It's been obvious that stocks in the resort, airline, hotels, etc are rapid dropping in value. The writing is all over the wall and has been since January. If I had stocks like that, I'd dump them too before losing even more money. How is losing millions in the stock market insider trading? I guess I'm not seeing it.

I don't, either. CV19 was public knowledge way back in January (possibly earlier, that's just when I clued into it). Heck, I went, "This might not end well," which prompted me to purchase N95 masks and preps - and sell almost all of my stocks. I don't see how anyone could convict on these people selling stocks on the hunch that the economy might be impacted by CV19 when it was in the news for public consumption - despite them having meetings over it. This is just a witch hunt.

You don't understand how having inside information and basing not only your own personal financial decisions on it, but CREATING PUBLIC DECISIONS that makes the general public's situation much worse financially and otherwise, is wrong. You don't understand this?

In a decent society, which we are not, all of these people would AND SHOULD, be executed. I mean this LITERALLY. This would not be tolerated in a society where public officials actually were expected to have a duty to work in the PUBLIC'S INTEREST and not in their OWN, which is what they've done.
 Quoting: Blue State Rebel


That's not what I said. I said that making personal financial decisions based on information that was already public is not insider trading. Insider trading is wrong, but I do not agree that this was insider trading.
 Quoting: GA Girl



I don't care if it's insider trading by any technical or legal definition or not. What it IS is a gross violation of public trust and their offices. They are put in place and paid to SERVE THE PUBLIC and to help us and protect us. What these degenerates did was use knowledge they secretly acquired, knowledge NOT AVAILABLE TO US, and used it to benefit themselves financially, all the while NOT TELLING US ANYTHING OR LYING OPENLY TO US. Richard Burr, for one example, OPENLY LIED TO THE PUBLIC about how things were going with CV while he sold off his own stocks.

This is a vile and degenerate behavior by public officials. I actually DO believe that in a decent society all of these PUBLIC OFFICIALS would be EXECUTED and I DO MEAN THAT LITERALLY. I would be HAPPY to pull the lever personally. These people should not dwell among decent Americans.
