70.87 Billion Reasons Why the Retail Brokers Just Betrayed Their Customers

Yesterday, when TD Ameritrade became the first exchange to impose “unprecedented” restrictions on GME trading, we predicted what would happen next: “expect many more exchanges to follow suit, because hedge funds clearly need to be protected when faced with the retail daytrading mob.”

24 hours later, we were proven correct when first Robinhood (an “orderflow” cash cow for Melvin Capital owner Citadel), then Interactive Brokers, then Schwab and countless other brokerages announced — as if on preagreed terms — to halt trading in GME, AMC, BB, BBY, EXPR, KOSS, NAKD, NOK, SNDL, ALL and various other names.

“We’re committed to helping our customers navigate this uncertainty,” Robinhood said in a blog post, but few saw it that way.

Anger as Trading in GameStop Shares is Restricted

Amateur investors are responding with outrage after trading platforms curbed buying of shares in the US games firm GameStop and other companies.

The moves by Robinhood and Interactive Brokers follow days of frenzied trading that led to massive gains for some stocks.

Shares in GameStop dived by as much as 55% after the restrictions.

It is the latest twist in a battle that has pitted amateur investors against Wall Street giants.

Gamestop Soars to $500 as Most-Shorted Stocks Resume Surge

Late last night (after a quick scare that sent GME stock sliding when the r/wallstreetbets subreddit briefly went private) we said that the “real short covering hasn’t even started yet” in Gamespot because as we showed, despite speculation that hedge funds had largely covered their shorts, the truth is that the short interest as a % of float hadn’t even budged, and the bulk of the move higher was on simple long buying and a giant gamma squeeze.

This morning, both Reddit and the broader investing public appear to have read this, and GME stock exploded for a 4th consecutive day, rising almost 50% to a new all time high of $500…

Google Play Deletes Over 150,000 Robinhood App Reviews After Frustrated Users Leave One-Star Ratings

Earlier today, Robinhood, the most popular trading app in the US, blocked its users from buying several trending stocks, such as GameStop and AMC, which have enjoyed a massive surge over the last few days, with much of the buying being driven by online communities.

The block on buying appeared to have an instant impact on the market, with the price of these stocks quickly declining to the detriment of many of these retail traders who responded by filing class action lawsuits that accused Robinhood of depriving retail investors of potential gains and leaving hundreds of thousands of one-star app reviews.

These negative reviews pushed the overall rating for the Robinhood app in the Google Play Store down from an overall rating of 3.5 stars to 1 star.

Recovery: HB: Reforms Are Missing From the German Plan

The pension system in Germany needs revising

(ANSA) — TRIESTE, 25 GEN — BERLIN, JANUARY 25 — The European Commission believes that a reform plan for the next few years is missing from the German Recovery Fund plan. Handelsblatt reported online, citing sources in the German government’s entourage, after talks with Brussels. The EU urges Germany to improve its reform plan. In particular, Brussels is asking the government to start reforming pensions. “There is a lack of broad and general measures to improve the pension system,” read the most recent recommendations.

Furthermore, Brussels is calling for the opening of regulated professions such as crafts or architects. “Germany lacks that fervor for reforms that Berlin demands of other countries,” wrote the German business newspaper ironically. The Recovery Fund foresees around 25.6 bn of non-repayable funds for Germany.

Robinhood Hit With Class Action Lawsuits After Blocking Its Users From Buying GameStop and Other Popular Stocks

Stock trading app Robinhood has been hit with two class action lawsuits after preventing its users from buying several popular stocks that have hit record highs this week including GameStop (GME), Blackberry (BB), Nokia (NOK), and AMC Theatres (AMC).

Several of these stocks, which have been buoyed by momentum from online communities such as WallStreetBets, had hit all-time highs before Robinhood stopped its users from buying them. After Robinhood started blocking these buys, the price of these stocks plummeted and they have yet to return to their previous highs.

Robinhood claimed that its decision to block millions of customers from buying these stocks was due to “recent volatility” and helping its customer “navigate this uncertainty.”

But the two class action lawsuits, one which was filed in the Southern District of New York by plaintiff Brendan Nelson and a second which was filed in Northern District of Illinois by plaintiff Richard Joseph Gatz, have accused Robinhood of depriving “retail investors of the ability to invest in the open-market and manipulating the open-market” and protecting “institutional investment at the detriment of retail customers.”

Stockbroker Service Robinhood Hit With Lawsuit Over Market Manipulation

Online stock trading app Robinhood is being hit with a class action lawsuit for its recent effort to block the buying of stocks that have been publicized on web forum Reddit.

The financial world has been in a state of great agitation since Wednesday after a group of non-professional “retail” investors coordinated with each other on the website Reddit to buy a large amount of stock in video game retailer GameStop. The plan materialized because the Reddit group became aware of wealthy hedge fund operators intending to short the GameStop stock.

The hedge fund investors that were planning on shorting GameStop stock ended up losing more than $5 billion because of the effort.

On Thursday, stockbroker services angered the Reddit crowd by restricting the trading of GameStop, as well as other targets like AMC Entertainment and Nokia. The “retail” investors retaliated on social media, accusing stockbroker service Robinhood of “manipulating the market.”

Viral Reddit Post From ‘Robinhood Insider’ Claims White House Pressured Broker to Block Buying of GameStop Shares

A post claiming to be from a Robinhood employee that has gone viral on Reddit alleges that the White House put pressure on the broker to halt buying of GameStop shares.

Retail traders were left fuming earlier today when Robinhood and other trading platforms curbed buying of stocks that the Reddit community WallStreetBets has targeted in its bid to bankrupt hedge funds.

Many saw this as a blatantly corrupt, and potentially criminal, move to rig the rules in order to protect the interests of multi-billionaire Wall Street financial interests that stand to lose vast sums of money if the stocks don’t plummet in value.

Now a person claiming to be a Robinhood employee claimed on Reddit that the Biden administration contacted the broker to pressure it to close trading on GME. The post has since gone viral, receiving over 23,000 upvotes.

CDC Stops Reporting on Experimental COVID mRNA Injection Side Effects

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has just released its weekly Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), and for the second week in a row, there is no new data on adverse reactions to the two FDA emergency use authorization (EUA) COVID mRNA injections.

The last report on the experimental injections and the adverse side effects was from January 6, 2021, and only covered the first week of injections with the experimental Pfizer COVID mRNA shots, with an emphasis on allergic reactions and anaphylaxis shock.

The report on January 6th did not cover the Moderna injections which have also received emergency use authorization by the FDA.

Injuries and deaths due to the experimental COVID injections are being reported in the U.S. and around the world, so why is the CDC not examining these adverse side effects and reporting on them?

CNA Nursing Home Whistleblower: Seniors Are Dying Like Flies After COVID Injections

James (he gives his last name in the video) is a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant), and he recorded this video as a whistleblower because he could not keep silent any longer.

James reports that in 2020 very few residents in the nursing home where he works got sick with COVID, and none of them died during the entire year of 2020.

However, shortly after administering the Pfizer experimental mRNA injections, 14 died within two weeks, and he reports that many others are near death.

The video is long (47 minutes), and it is clear that James is suffering from emotional stress, and he admits that he has nothing to gain from going public, and that he will probably lose his job for doing so.

But he makes it very clear that these were patients he knew and cared for (he is also a “lay pastor”), and that after being injected with the mRNA shot, residents who used to walk on their own can no longer walk. Residents who used to carry on an intelligent conversation with him could no longer talk.

And now they are dying. “They’re dropping like flies.”

His superiors are explaining the deaths as being caused by a COVID19 “super-spreader.”

However, the residents who refused to take the injections, are not sick, according to James.

James makes it very clear that as a Christian, he cannot live with his conscience anymore, and that he can no longer remain silent.

He is not anti-vaccine, but just sharing what he knows is true, regarding the people he has cared for in his profession for over 10 years now.

This is a very clear pattern now. Inject the elderly with the mRNA injections, then blame their illnesses and deaths on the COVID virus.

COVID Vaccines “Biological Weapons of Mass Destruction” Says Wyoming Medical Doctor and Manager for Wyoming’s State Public Health Department

Dr. Shepherd was born and raised in the Soviet Union, and became a Military Doctor in St. Petersburg, Russia, and studied under the Strategic Rocket Force.

He is an expert today on bio-weapons, Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and high yield Explosives,(CBRNE) and Pandemic preparedness.

His view is that these vaccines are very similar technology to the bio-weapon RND used to develop viral weapons. He fully understands that the plan of depopulation and mandatory vaccinations will be at our doorstep very soon, and is shocked that the American people are so passive concerning this enemy takeover.

He believes that this fake pandemic is the means by which a communist global government will be ushered into existence; one that cannot be voted out.

I just received some disturbing information from Dr. Igor Shepherd. It is a tragic shame, but certainly was expected.

Dr. Shepherd just received a call from the Wyoming State Deputy Director of Public Health concerning the video from his latest talk in Colorado that was featured on this website.

He has now been put on administrative leave, and a third party is doing an investigation on this matter. He believes that the Wyoming governor must have viewed his speech, thus starting the process to remove him from his position for telling the truth.

He told me that he could no longer remain silent in the face of this treasonous takeover of this nation. He is at peace with this, and regardless what happens, will continue his life and will tell the truth about this virus fraud.

This is just another attempt by the state to silence any willing to tell the truth, and expose this virus fraud for what it really is; the planned takeover of humanity.

Doctor Tells NBC Americans Should Consider Wearing Four Face Masks

Doctor Scott Segal told NBC News that Americans should consider wearing FOUR face masks if they want the most effective protection against spreading COVID-19.

Yes, really.

As we highlighted yesterday, Dr. Fauci advised Americans to begin wearing two masks, saying that it “makes common sense” for more than one layer to be more effective.

However, Fauci was outdone by researchers at Virginia Tech, who said that two face masks only provide 50-75% efficacy and that three masks should be worn to achieve 90% effectiveness.

But why stop at 90 per cent?

Rude Awakening Before the Great Awakening

“There is going to be a rude awakening before there is a great awakening.”

Those are the words of my friend John Barnett as we travelled to Washington, DC to take part in the MGA rally Jan 6.

Yes, we were there along with nearly a million of our closest friends in another futile attempt to find someone with whom we could satisfactorily redress our grievances regarding the loss of the Republic.

Despite the lies you were fed by the media; you need to know that it was one of the most patriotic events in the history of this nation. I am proud that I went and proud of the God-fearing Moms and Pops who sacrifice greatly to take part. The snooze media are scoundrels. The politicians are scoundrels, and many Christians and Christian leaders are scoundrels for criticizing the efforts of those who journeyed to America’s darkest city simply to have their voices be heard.

Washington is dark. Spiritually dark. The memorials are dark. The architecture is dark. The atmosphere is dark, and the Government is dark. It grieves me to say it, but dark forces are in control of this nation.

The FBI visited some of my friends after we returned home. The FBI put on a full court press in attempt to find those who dared confront the wicked government, even though that is their God-given right spelled out in the First Amendment of our formally respected Constitution. The FBI couldn’t find Hillary’s emails, Epstein’s passengers, or Bubba NASCAR’s lynch mob. But they turned over every leaf looking for those who stormed Nancy’s house. Look, I was there. I saw it with my own two eyes. The police stood down, the doors were open, and hundreds of people WALKED into the Capitol believing it was open to the public. My wife and I did not go in. We sat on the steps with thousands of Americans simply asking for our country back. Now many of those God-fearing people are receiving visits from the FBI in their search for MAGA terrorists. It makes me want to puke.

The New mRNA COVID Vaccines Inject an Operating System Into Your Body — Not a Conspiracy Theory, Moderna Admits it

Our first article of 2021 featured a video of an interview with Catherine Austin Fitts, titled: Catherine Austin Fitts Explains how the Globalist Billionaires and Technocrats are Planning on Taking Over the Planet, and How We can Stop It.

In this interview, Catherine compared the new mRNA COVID vaccines to a computer operating system, stating that just like computer operating systems such as Windows, that there would be a “back door” where the technocrats will be able to control our bodies through regular “updates.”

I thought it was a brilliant analogy of what the technocrats seek to accomplish with this new class of vaccines.

Well, it turns out this was NOT an “analogy” at all! Moderna, the manufacturer of one of the COVID mRNA vaccines that has currently been issued emergency use authorization, has actually published on their website that this is true: the mRNA vaccine injects an “operating system” into your body that they call “The Software of Life.”

The Globalists have become so bold, and the human masses have become so compliant, that they are no longer doing these things in secret, but right out in the open for all to see.

Up to 60% of U.S. Healthcare Workers Refusing Experimental COVID mRNA Vaccine — “Don’t Want to be a Guinea Pig”

A vaccine to ward off the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 was said to be the panacea for the pandemic.

But the rapid development of the vaccines, along with early reports of side effects — some serious — has put people off to taking them, including those at the front lines.

“I don’t want to be a guinea pig,” Sheena Bumpas, a certified nursing assistant at a home in Duncan, Okla., told The New York Times last month.

Since then, thousands of health care workers across the U.S. have refused to get COVID-19 vaccines. “Up to half of health care workers in one California county and a Texas hospital say they will not get the shot, 60 percent of nursing home staff in Ohio are turning down the jab and 40 percent of frontline workers in Los Angeles won’t get it either, polls reveal,” The Daily Mail reported.

The European Union, which failed to secure early production of coronavirus vaccines, is demanding that UK-made AstraZeneca doses produced for Britons be sent to Europe instead.

Earlier this week, the European Commission threatened to halt the export of vaccines made in Europe produced under a UK contract, after both drugs companies Pfizer and AstraZeneca revealed a delay in delivery to the EU market due to production problems in Belgium.

Facebook Apologizes After Suspending Users for Referring to Plymouth Hoe, A UK Tourist Spot

Facebook removed posts referring to a popular seafaring spot in the UK called Plymouth Hoe. The social media platform has since apologized for the mistake of thinking people were using the word “hoe” in a “misogynistic” way.

Plymouth Hoe is a popular spot in the UK, with rich maritime history. It is where Sir Francis Drake started his quest to fight the Spanish Armada.

The word “hoe” refers to a long-handed gardening tool, mostly used for weeding. The word is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word for a sloping ridge shaped like an inverted foot.

Informally, the word “hoe” is used in place of “whore,” which means prostitute and is often perceived as insulting and misogynistic.

France: Teacher Criticizes Islam, Leftist Org Publishes Her Name, Calls Her ‘Islamophobic, ‘ Death Threats Follow

She criticized Judaism as well, which is inexplicable, as Jewish terrorists aren’t committing acts of violence around the world in the name of Judaism and in accord with its teachings, but in any case, it isn’t Jews who are threatening her. And what she said about Islam denying the freedom of conscience is absolutely true, but of course we have abundant proof at this point that even if criticism of Islam is accurate, Leftists will still call it “Islamophobic.” Mediapart went farther, however, in revealing her identity and thus exposing her to the death threats. If she is killed, her blood will be on Mediapart’s hands, not that anyone will hold its officers accountable.

“Mediapart names teacher criticizing Islam, attacks media,” translated from “Mediapart livre le nom d’une enseignante critiquant l’islam, elle attaque le média,” Valeurs Actuelles, January 21, 2021 (thanks to Mason).

Polish Catholic Church Holds ‘Day of Islam’ To ‘Overcome Prejudices’

The prejudices in question are those that are presumably held by Catholics, not by Muslims. When is the Islamic community in Poland’s “Day of Christianity” scheduled, so as to “overcome prejudices” against Christianity among Muslims? Of course no such event is planned, or will be planned. The onus is always and everywhere upon non-Muslims to reach out to Muslims and show that they’re not prejudiced, never the other way around, and no one in the world ever seems to notice.

Tony Blair: ‘Inevitable’ GLOBAL Vaccine Passports Should be Implemented Now

Former British Prime Minster Tony Blair has said that the British government should take advantage of the fact that it is to preside over the G7 this year to implement a global vaccine passport system.

Blair’s globalist institute issued a report urging the UK government to “place the creation of a global Covid-19 travel pass as a key item” on the G7 agenda.

In an interview with the Telegraph, the Iraq war architect himself stated that vaccine passports are “inevitable” and that British government needs to “take the initiative” using its “fortuitous” G7 presidency, and implement a “critical first step” toward global adoption of the scheme.

284 Women Killed in Turkey in Domestic Violence in 2020

At least 284 women were killed in Turkey at the hands of men in 2020, according to a parliamentary question submitted by an opposition deputy in the Turkish Parliament.

The parliamentary question submitted by Semra Güzel, a deputy from the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democracy Party (HDP), concerns the shortcomings of the mobile phone app KADES, the Women’s Emergency Assistance Notification System, developed by the Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Services in 2018 to prevent acts of violence against women.

Güzel said violence against women had increased significantly in 2020, noting that 48 out of the 284 women were killed at home, while one out of every five of them was murdered because they wanted a divorce.

Syria: Commercial Flights Resume Between Aleppo and Beirut

After ten years of interruption due to war

(ANSAmed) — BEIRUT, JANUARY 15 — Commercial flights between Aleppo, Syria, and Beirut, Lebanon, two of the most important cities in the Middle East, resumed Friday for the first time after an approximately 10-year interruption due to the war in Syria. Aleppo was directly involved in the conflict from 2012 to 2016, and its airport was inactive for civilian and commercial flights until last year. National Syrian airline Syrianair announced on Friday the first flight to the Lebanese capital in “full respect of anti-Covid measures”. A few dozen passengers left Aleppo for Beirut and dozens of others embarked in Beirut to travel to the battered city in northern Syria. Syrianair offers regular flights between Damascus, the Syrian capital, and Beirut, which are less than 200 km apart via direct airspace but divided by an international border that is not always passable due to military, security, and meteorological reasons.(ANSAmed).

The Most Important COVID Research is a Fake Investigation

Story at-a-glance

  • Peter Daszak, EcoHealth Alliance president, is part of the World Health Organization team that is investigating the origins of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19
  • Daszak works closely with the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) — the laboratory in question that possibly leaked the virus — and dozens of others on controversial gain-of-function research, which involves manipulating pathogens, including coronaviruses, to make them more infectious or lethal
  • Daszak has openly and repeatedly dismissed the possibility of the pandemic being the result of a lab leak
  • WIV researchers have been conducting experiments involving the bat coronavirus RaTG13 — the closest known relative to SARS-CoV-2, with 96.2% similarity — since at least 2016
  • WHO’s published agenda for its COVID-19 origins research suggests there are no plans to assess whether there might have been a laboratory leak of coronavirus at WIV

America: Not a Nation of Trespassers

Don’t you feel safer today with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in power? How about Charles Schumer leader of our U.S. Senate? What about the presidency led by Joe Biden? Have they fulfilled their oaths of office to protect all American citizens…in the last 30 to 47 years serving in Washington DC?

I spoked with veteran INS officer Michael Cutler about our chances for maintaining America’s sovereignty with those three “open borders” advocates now in complete power in Washington DC.

“Our immigration laws were enacted to protect national security, public health, public safety and the jobs and wages of Americans,” said Cutler. “Since taking office, just last week, Biden has issued a flurry of executive orders that would render those vital laws moot, undermines all of those issues that the immigration laws are supposed to protect.”At a time when there is a shortage of hospital beds, COVID-19 vaccines and other health-related resources. A lack of jobs and other resources, it is insane for the incoming president to, in effect, fire the starter’s pistol for a stampede of aliens.”

“What can we expect?” I asked.

Chief Rabbi Goldschmidt’s Holocaust Commemoration: “Islamic Terror and Uncontrolled Waves of Immigrants Shook Europe to the Core”

Speaking via Video in the EU Parliament on the 76th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, European Chief Rabbi Pichas Goldschmidt issued a stark warning against the new antisemitism and violence brought to Europe by mass immigration from Muslim Countries.

“The New Europe (after the Holocaust) would guarantee a Jewish future by being based on the liberal democratic principles guaranteeing the physical safety and the freedom of faith for Jews”, Goldschmidt said.

“Today Europe is again at a crossroads, testing its resilience and its values. The immigration of millions of Muslims from the Middle East is testing Europe again. The wave of Islamic fundamentalist terror and the uncontrolled waves of immigrants shook Europe to the core… The question we should ask ourselves is: Are we going to go the same was Europe did almost one century ago?”

MEP Joachim Kuhs of the Identity and Democracy group commented: “All our commemorations are worth nothing if we give solemn speeches once a year while repeating the same mistakes the rest of the year. Our fellow European Jews are very worried about the direction Europe has taken with its fatal ‘No Borders’ policy. If Angela Merkel and the EU are really concerned about protecting Jews in Europe, she has to stop opening the floodgates to mass immigration from deeply antisemitic societies!”

  1. “More than 42,000 fines have been handed out by police for breaches of Covid-19 laws since they came into force, new figures show.”

    Is it just me, or do UK Covid fines sound a little too much like a revenue raising activity?

  2. Sick government & infectious disease plan: Citizens will go out based on their ID number!
    Last update:29/01/2021 – 11:14
    .
    A sick plan is being worked out by the government and infectious disease specialists that even the harshest dictatorial regimes could not conceive, according to which,going out sending SMS will be abolished and citizens will be able to go out on certain days of the week based on their ID number!

    The plan was unveiled yesterday by Professor Charalambos Gogos, while today a second member of the committee of infectious diseases, Alkiviadis Vatopoulos, confirmed that the measure of the ” Odd-Even” for the movement of citizens is on the table.

    As the professor of Microbiology said, in fact the measure is discussed with a prediction instead of sending SMS with a code for the exit of the citizens to use the last number of their police ID! Thus, it will be chosen who will be released one day and who the next.

    It should be noted that neither of the two members of the committee of infectious disease specialists who stated that the measure is being discussed did not specify which movements will be involved.

    It is recalled that Professor Charalambos Gogos had said that “smart solutions” should be considered , namely the number of the police ID with which the government and the committee will choose who will go out one day and who the next.

    He described the increase in mobility as a big problem as it increases the transmissibility of the coronavirus and cited the influx of people in Hermes street as an example, arguing that the phenomenon should be limited.

    This time the commission, with the permission or not the encouragement of the government, has really outdone itself and is calling for measures that are not only unconstitutional but now violate the basic human rights of citizens at the level of Iran and North Korea.

    The mere fact that such proposals are heard raises serious concerns for the people who manage the epidemic, who seem to have “escaped logic” a long time ago. We do not know what the committee members think and whether overexposure along with their power has affected them, but the citizens are not cows, nor sheep to go out based on a number.

    Is it the job of infectious disease specialists to propose Orwellian bans? And what does the government do, sit and look at them? or worse,does he urge them?

    If this proposal is seriously discussed with the knowledge of the government, then the political issue that arises is huge and has to do with the essence of the regime and the basic human rights of the Greeks, if not those who made the proposal and in fact should be publicly fired yesterday !

    P.S
    Hermes Street,in the center of Athens, is like Oxford street in London.

    According to this new ban i will not be able to go out with my husband,because my ID has odd number and his even.
    I do not know what will happen with the other members of my family who have British passports!
