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.

The full post is reprinted below;

I work for Robinhood. Don’t kill me.

Low-level, technical shit, comp sciences major, not finance side.

Guess what we overhead today?

Vladimir, yes founder Vladimir, and the C-Suite, received calls from Sequoia Capital and the White House that pressured into closing trading on GME etc. I guarantee you the same took place at E-Trade and the others who closed trading.

File reports on the SEC page. If I wasn’t scared to be out of work in a pandemic I’d quit. I’m disgusted. We all need to rise up, this is as bad as it gets when we talk about how the rich get one set of rules, and the rest of us get screwed over, and over, and over again left to bail them out and pick up the tab for their trillion dollar tax breaks. We need to pile pressure on every government and financial institution involved in this travesty of justice.

I’m taking a massive career risk even posting here but fuck these motherfuckers.

The Biden White House said it was “monitoring” the GameStop situation yesterday but hasn’t announced any action publicly.

Over on the WallStreetBets Reddit forum, the consensus seems to be that the post is not believable, and may even be a ploy to panic GameStop stock holders into selling.

Meanwhile, in an email sent out in the last hour, Robinhood says it will allow “limited buys” of GameStop and other similar stocks tomorrow.

CNN Uses Creepy, Dystopian “Before Times” Rhetoric to Justify Empty Shelves

“They are laying narrative groundwork to prepare you for a world of shortages, scarcity, and incompetence.”

Questions are being asked of CNN after the network used the creepy dystopian phrase “Before Times” to describe a time pre-COVID when grocery shelves weren’t empty.

The phrase appears in a report about how grocery shelves “are not going back to normal this year” as a result of labor shortages and transportation restrictions.

“If you hoped grocery stores this fall and winter would look like they did in the Before Times, with limitless options stretching out before you in the snack, drink, candy and frozen foods aisles, get ready for some disappointing news,” states the article.

Note how “Before Times” is emphasized by its seemingly otherwise unnecessary capitalization.

The dystopian language appears to be another way of socially engineering Americans to accept “the new normal,” which will include rolling lockdowns, energy crises and food shortages.

Twitter users accused the network of weaponizing language to induce fearmongering.

“They say ‘The Before Times’ like COVID is equivalent to Jesus. Absolute lunatics,” tweeted Robby Starbuck.

“Interesting way of saying that we will have food shortages in Joe Biden’s America,” remarked Harrison Krank.

Another respondent warned that CNN would use the term to distract from the Biden administration’s incompetence and blame any problems on the pandemic.

“They are laying narrative groundwork to prepare you for a world of shortages, scarcity, and incompetence,” warned another respondent, “This isn’t an accident.”

Out of stock percentages in U.S. grocery chains have risen from 7-10% before the pandemic to as high as 18% in recent days.

Tucker Carlson On Gas Panic: “Somebody Did This To Us On Purpose”

It’s a “grimmer version of the 1970s”

Tucker Carlson warned Tuesday that the disruption in the Colonial Pipeline and the resulting shortage panic is being carried out by design.

Carlson noted that the situation represents a “grimmer version of the 1970s” with many states declaring emergency shortages, and resulting price gouging as a result of, we are told, “some mysterious gang of cybercriminals [who] hacked the software at a major American fuel supplier.”

Referring to the Biden administration, Carlson declared “The same lunatics who don’t believe in Human Biology immediately made a serious mess of our economy, it took them less than six months to do it.”

Comparing the scenes to Venezuela, Carlson noted that the New York Times says this is just another “conspiracy theory”.

Watch:

“On some level, let’s be honest about it, the White House approves of this disaster,” Carlson proclaimed, adding that “the lunatics plan to close every gas station in the entire United States, shuttered forever, to make way for some new as yet not quite defined means of transportation that will magically replace the gasoline engines that we have used for more than a hundred years.”

Carlson continued “bad federal policies are distorting the price of everything in this country from two by fours to diesel fuel to corndogs.”

“None of this is an accident just as it wasn’t an accident when the power went out in Texas over the winter,” the host continued, adding “It wasn’t a cold snap that did it. It was a federal policy that encouraged the state to rely on windmills which don’t actually work.”

“It’s not a natural cycle. Somebody did this to us on purpose,” Carlson warned.
