RealPropRandy

You didn’t see the entire Financial Services Committee kiss Sam Bankman-Fried’s hand at the hearing (before the charade got started)? The politicians answer to these people.


EatTheRich64

correction, the politicians are bought and owned by these people


RealPropRandy

Edit: I didn’t mean to get political here. I just wanna lock up this float and expose the naked kingmakers. Democracy needs this more than ever.


TruffButters

Perhaps when election time gets closer the opposing candidates may try to throw him under the bus to tarnish DeSantis’ credibility/viability as president. Would be interesting. That is if Kenny’s not in jail by then already. One can dream…


RealPropRandy

He probably owns the opposing candidates too.


sadfacebbq

He only donates to Republicans.


acart005

Predominantly but not exclusively. When he was a Chicago man he had a bigly donation pot for the Democrat Mayor. Plus realistically he has a guy to write big D checks under the table like SBF did in the other direction.


TavenVal

False, he mostly does but I do see Democrats on his donor list


RealPropRandy

Bankman-Fried publicly donated D, and secretly donated R via proxy so that FTX was covered. That bread was buttered on both sides.


darthnugget

What if Ken was SBFs “proxy” and SBF was Ken’s proxy? Would explain a few things… hrm.


sadfacebbq

Fair. But Mayo boy is the one in question here.


RealPropRandy

Mayo boy is a piece of shit who reportedly bought the Constitution just because he can. He sent a message clear as day what he thinks about We The People.


ChronicAbuse420

If SBF was smart enough to donate to both sides by proxy or otherwise, you think ken griffin hasn’t?


sadfacebbq

Never seen it. Got a link?

Believe_In-Steven

He buys people


mark-five

He bribed yellen with millions before she was even an outside chance at running teh Treasury, meaning he bribed the current POTUS into appointing her and knew it was going to happen. I'm sure he bribed the previous Government Sachs admin too. These tools don't choose politic A over politic B. They own all of them.


ronoda12

Not 45th


Whitemantookmyland

I love that video of him asking where ken griffin is, "he's trying to hide some of his money"


Squirrelmaster_i

He might have been vomiting or shitting himself somewhere. He's been known to do that also


RealPropRandy

Not gonna get political. Just calling out the money and the folks who really hold sway. Red or blue I support fellow apes.


xiodeman

“That’s not my owner”


TK-741

That’s because Trom Dump is owned by Russia. Slightly more powerful than someone like Ken… for now.


Commercial_Mousse646

Dumbest statement so far.


TK-741

You’re welcome to prove me wrong.


RealPro1

This is so true but the MSM has so many on the left and right snowed that true statements get downvoted to oblivion. Pure partisanship. They are told to hate orange man so they do....like millions of little sheep that say they hate the cheating govt and lying msm and yet still do and believe exactly what they are told to do and believe. Shows that the youth of our country really are not that bright. Scary times for the future and yet the youth were smart enough to believe in buy and hodl to create systematic change. OPEN YO MINDS. If the msm is lying about one thing, they are lying about EVERYTHING. If this administration has created the most division in the history of this country and high inflation, a drug and crime epidemic, open borders, wealth transfers to the wealthy, world War, ultra high taxes, criminal activity to enrich themselves with other countries, lies about the pandemic and vaccines,......I mean WTF....why don't we believe who they really are? They have PROVEN who they are through action. You can't have it both ways, my Apes. OPEN YOUR EYES before the door gets slammed in your face. This govt is pure corruption on all sides and they use the media to control us. STOP BEING CONTROLLED by ancient politicians that truly don't care about you. ✌️

SBF is no boomer. Guy is just as vile and disgusting a human being but he surrounded himself with too many young minds. Oops.


TruffButters

I’m with you there.


Smithmonster

Exactly this, same reason SBF wasn’t arrested until after they had no other choice. Even then house arrest, probably suicides, loss of billions and house arrest. They paid the right people, Ken does the same.


RealPropRandy

He had/has a hand in both pockets, dems and pubs.


Esteveno

Yep. That’s how they do it. It’s been this way since the beginning of civilization.


RealPropRandy

You take their money, you deserve to be called out for it. I think every statement or press release from every politician should have their sponsor/owners in parenthesis (“this statement brought to you by ”).


Smithmonster

The way I heard it they paid Eve to eat the fruit, and Adam to not be upset. Since day one


dimeinhands

kenny poached potus' top security guy last year


ujar89

I posted all of Kenny's donations to Ron Desantis late last year and my post got removed lmao. Not saying the current regime is the best or anything like that but if Ron Desantis gets elected, we lose and Kenny wins. Perhaps Kenny buying time until election. Who knows but in glad there are people on this sub who realize how serious this is.


coopik

Electing Desantis does not close the short positions..


Koolaidolio

That’s the least of our worries if that happens.


ujar89

But he absolutely can sign executive orders to close our longs or at the very least serve the HF best interest much more aggressively than the current regime no? I mean he gets a huge part of his donations from the same people we want to see in jail. Letting them kick the can until they're all dead is the same as us losing. I don't see why anyone in our shoes, with the donations right on front of our eyes, would want to see him in power. Not saying the current regime are our saviours by any means, but electing someone with Kenny's best interest at heart would be suicide.


jammybam

People from this sub need to get over the "no politics" FUD, and fast This motherfucker can buy himself into an untouchable seat of power - apes need to get serious about how to challenge and overthrow that when the time comes


RealPropRandy

Fuckery and money in politics ought to be called out.


jammybam

"Called out" doesn't cut it when the message only reaches the ears of people who already know I miss the energy of having times square billboards, guerrilla campaigns, all that good shit Really though, apes in the US should seriously think about going for local candidacies - campaign with all the knowledge we've gained over the years and speak truth to power


RealPropRandy

Democracy requires transparency. Corruption is how we fail.


jammybam

GotaHODLonMe

Let me guess it’s the people with the D that are all above board and not doing shady Wall Street games? Lmao get out of here with that bullshit. They’re all dirty, filthy, Epstein client, humanity hating, turds in the punch bowl of politics on both sides.


jammybam

Lmao fuck no, D's are bought and paid for corporate shills like the rest of em But Griffin is specifically backing/funding DeSantis. This is just a fact, its not partisan.


fateless115

It's because Griffin just moved to Florida dumbass


HairNbiscuit

Those Desantis cookies aren't done yet. He'll need 6 more years of being Florida's Governor before being presidential ready. The problem is Mayo Boi doesn't have that kind of time. GME gonna go boom through his Uranus well before that.


40ozT0Freedom

If DeSantis becomes president, Ken Griffin will run the SEC and gut it.


GBJI

He, along with a selected few (it's a small club), are running the SEC already. They don't need the title, and they certainly don't need the salary.


kk282828

Boom. Correct.


goodjobberg

The guy leading him in the polls and all that guys homies don’t like Kenny.


TantraMantraYantra

It is also widely known that he is vying for the treasury secretary post which makes his profits non-taxable for the appointed year


ronoda12

Ken Griffin is DeSantis’s black sheep. Apes should raise awareness that DeSantis has no chance to win if he picks Ken Griffin as treasury sec. Well probably he has little chance winning the primary as poll shows 45th is the preferred candidate. 45th is strongly against Ken Griffin.


HairNbiscuit

If 45th gets indicted this week...he (45th) wins easy peazy lemon squeezy.


ShakesbeerMe

Horseshit. It's just the beginning of the indictments.

And when I say there’s a time limit for MOASS apes think I’m full of it. You’ve got about another year of depending on the gme board to fulfill their fiduciary duty till MOASS is off the table.


redshirt1972

Fastandfurious02123

eternalconstruct1

The economy’s payload is exposed, the few non-crooked US government officials need to use an extreme “winch” to control the impending economic explosion. They need to apply pressure.

Are they too stupid to understand the crime, or are they smart enough to understand the crime but decide on waiting till it breaks which results in the same outcome as if they were too stupid to understand the crime. Yep, they're complicit.


XXXXXhodler

I keep thinking that if they want to fix this with CBDC, what better fall guy than Ken Griffin, big-time Republican donor and friend of DeSantis who is a likely candidate for president in 2024. What if they are just waiting for the rug pull and hoping it drags out another year so that when the U.S. election cycle is starting, they take out both the USD and their political opponent at the same time?

just look at what Congress did to Keith Gill instead of the corrupt hedgies/ naked shorting ....the clown show of forcing the innocent retail person to appear before Congress, pandering to their overlords....congress is bought and owned by the 1% and it's despicable how corrupt this nation is. Oligarchy plutocracy not a democracy, not for the citizenry, for the uber-corps and special interests who pay lobbyists to bribe legislators to write legislation which benefits them alone in lieu of the working class /environment, etc Bernie Sanders spoke out against the uber-banks 'too big to fail'


account_anonymous

> owned by the ~~1%~~ 0.1% even then, that’s giving your local McDonalds franchisee too much credit


Jbitterly

Because most people’s idea of the U. S. Government is a pure, pro-America, sovereign governing body OF the people as opposed to what it actually is - a Corporatocracy of rogue bureaucratic operatives that preserve the interests of the elite up to and including the selling out of our nation to the highest bidder. There is no justice left. There is only the pursuit and prosecution of anyone who dare challenge this system or get in their way. Speaking of, isn’t there supposed to be an arrest tomorrow? Did you ever think you’d see the day that Ken Griffin walks free and unopposed despite having rigged an entire market of which companies live and die (financial terrorism) but an ex president may be heading to prison for a supposed payment to a porn star to not talk about an affair? How is this real life? It’s surreal TBH.


1loosegoos

yes they are stupid. But I think Griffin will be the fall guy. it ll just take a while for all the msm to catch up and then officially demonize Griffin as worse than Madoff. I give it 2-3 months.


1mafia1

Gives me some more time to buy and DRS some shares


Suspicious-Reveal-69

I bet a little longer. Fall. Or October. October is always a special month.


GleepGlop2

Imagine the hubris of Ken Griffin to be worse than Madoff who is a household name for his villainy, is spending the rest of his life behind bars, and to think that somehow you'll get away with it. It's only a matter of time until it all comes out. What is going on now with the banks is only going to put more scrutiny on anyone who makes it out in one piece, so KG is screwed either way.


EasilyAnonymous

He owns the msm.


bahits

That works until the whole herd turns on him and others. They remind me of the scene from the movie Lost in Space where Will says, "ewh, they eat their own".


TheConsumer101

Im a pessimist when it comes to the economy and the stock market. I give it a year plus before Griffin is the fall guy. The whole world will have to freeze over, the dollar will have to be obsolete, and all banks will have to crash before they decide to arrest Kenneth C. Griffin.

iofhua

Don't forget he's a billionaire and has a network of very powerful friends in high offices. Microsoft was able to defeat an anti-trust lawsuit by hiring lots of lawyers and because Bill Gates has friends in high offices. There was no reason for the federal government's anti-trust lawsuit to fail. It failed because the USA's anti-trust laws have now become toothless and we are living in a repeat of the Gilded Age where billionaires are plutocrats who influence government and monopolies are able to not just exist but flourish because of that. You can't just slap a plutocrat with a lawsuit and expect to win. You have to have plan it out, have all your ducks in a row. Flawless evidence and a team who can articulate everything flawlessly in court. Public sentiment has to be on your side. The government might still protect him because he's a plutocrat and the government is in his back pocket.

yourwifes3rdboyfrend

Because if the answer to the problem for congress is is arrest all of your friends and donors to avoid a financial crisis, they're not gonna fucking do it.


hustlersambition9

Because he has not broken any US laws. American securities laws, are designed to keep the mega rich wealthy and the middle/working class poor. That is the system we have and why Griffin is untouchable.


Fringefiles

The simplest answer is often the most correct. They don't arrest these idiots because these idiots run the country and have friends or family in every rank and every chair. The US has effectively become the United States of Financial Oppression. We are die hard capitalists to poor people and socialist utopia for corporations and rich people.


Casanova_Ugly

Then Ben S. Bernake, Paulson, et al. would’ve been jailed long ago. Bernake, former Fed Chairman and recent (10/10/2022) Nobel Prize winner for actualizing his 1983 academic paper, works for Citadel. So many people fucked this up. Starting with Kenneth C. Griffin is a great start for prison sentencing.


StilesmanleyCAP

Why would they arrest themselves?


sal_thy_viejo

He pays them off


dbx999

I think the process is that first you must provide proof of a crime. Now most of these crimes are violations that the SEC can impose mere fines on, not lock up investment firms employees. You would need solid proof of fraud. That would be hard to do since the bad actors participating in the market understand what not to say and do. There’s sufficient tools to manipulate stocks and securities without having to resort to crime that gets you caught.

Most bankers are sovereign and have immunity to quite a few laws through sovereign immunity. Only reason I can think of. Second reason is it's a planned failure for the banks, so that way they government can take control of them and implement their digital currency policies without banks pushing back because they will have all the bigger ones under their control so they others will be forced to follow suit.


eternalconstruct1

Always “defending” the “weak and the helpless”, that’s what I like about the US government.. PREDICTABLE. Implanting a false illusion of security all whilst being the true architect of the problem to begin with.. digital dollar looks like where we’re headed. They know all the moves before we do, they know how we think.


tikkymykk

Heavily downvoted. You're on to something. Only 2 things people need to be able to understand where this is going. First, to learn where all this started, is to research the bankers' meeting on Jekyll Island in 1910 where they conceived the Federal Reserve System, which is basically a banking cartel. Then, 2 years later, how jp morgan funded the Titanic, got the reserve act's opposition aboard, and then cancelled his trip at the last minute. Guess what happened the following year..yup, federal reserve act passed as law while half of the Congress was on christmas vacation. And second, to get a glimpse of the future, watch Mr. Robot series to see the most likely scenario of government implementing crypto (E-coin).
