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.

Rupert Murdoch Becomes Latest Rich Elitist to Buy Huge Property in Remote Area

Purchases 340,000 acre cattle ranch in Montana.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has become the latest rich elitist to buy a huge property in a remote area even as the plebs continue to be told “you’ll own nothing and be happy.”

Murdoch and his wife have purchased a 340,000 acre cattle ranch and attached mansion house in Montana that was previously owned by the Koch family for a whopping $200 million dollars.

The sale of the property, known as Beaverhead, is the largest ranch deal in Montana history.

“The ranch is in southwest Montana near Yellowstone National Park, and features elk, antelope and mule deer. There’s also a 28-mile long river for trout fishing and 25 homes,” reports Bloomberg.

Presumably, given that Murdoch is 90 years of age, the redoubt will also serve as a getaway for his surviving family members.

While globalist groups like the World Economic Forum continue to insist that the general public “will own nothing” in the future and “be happy” with that arrangement, wealthy technocrats themselves continue to buy up vast tracts of land.

As we previously highlighted, billionaire Google co-founder Larry Page has been hiding out on and buying isolated private islands in Fiji to avoid tourists who aren’t allowed in.

Bill Gates also became the largest owner of farmland in America earlier this year after “quietly snatching up 242,000 acres.”

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos is also “investing in land on a large scale,” according to Forbes.

Meanwhile, you get to enjoy being locked down in your micro-pod for God knows how many years to come.

Federal Reserve Encourages Americans to Replace Thanksgiving Turkeys With Soybean Products

To combat soaring meat price inflation.

Published

The Federal Reserve is encouraging Americans to combat soaring meat price inflation by swapping turkeys for soybean products this Thanksgiving.

Yes, really.

“Between 1990 and the time of this writing, the average global price of poultry has been 6 times higher than the price of soybeans,” reports the St. Louis Fed.

“As of the third quarter of 2021, a hearty Thanksgiving dinner serving of turkey costs $1.42. A tofurkey (soybean) dinner serving with the same amount of calories costs $0.66 and provides almost twice as much protein. Keep in mind that this plant-based meal would be almost 3 times larger by weight than the poultry-based meal and may either keep you at the dinner table longer or provide you with more leftovers.”

The mainstream media is also encouraging Americans to “curtail their purchases of animal protein.”

“Meatless Mondays could soon be followed by Tofu Tuesdays, at least among more frugal shoppers,” reported CBS News.

“It’s getting harder by the day not to think our globalist overlords are intentionally causing meat prices to rise so we’ll all be forced to eat bugs, weeds and drink sewage,” remarked Chris Menahan.

In Communist China, up until well into the 80’s, things like beef were a rare treat to be enjoyed only on special occasions.

If the technocrats get their way, America would be heading in the same direction.

China Urges Citizens to Stockpile Food in Preparation For Potential Winter Supply Chain Breakdown

While Biden administration dismisses the issue.

While the Biden administration has attempted to dismiss inflation and food supply issues, China is now urging its citizens to prepare for the winter by stockpiling food.

“A statement from China’s government urging local authorities to ensure there was adequate food supply during the winter and encouraging people to stock up on some essentials prompted concerned talk online, with people linking it with the widening coronavirus outbreak, a forecast cold snap, or even rising tensions with Taiwan,” reports Bloomberg.

“The Ministry of Commerce urged local authorities to stabilize prices and ensure supplies of daily necessities including vegetables this winter and next spring, according to a statement Monday evening. Chinese households were also encouraged to stock up on a certain amount of daily necessities in preparation for the winter months or emergencies.”

China’s urging for families to hoard food was prompted by massive problems with the global supply chain as a result of COVID in addition to extreme volatility in energy markets.

While the Biden administration has tried to downplay the prospect of food shortages, Butterball, one of the leading turkey producers in the U.S., warned that there could be a shortage of small turkeys this Thanksgiving.

Food shortages are also being seen at numerous schools across the U.S., while grocery shelves have been emptied of other essential items like toilet paper and diapers.

However, while Beijing is acting responsibly in telling its citizens to get prepared, the Biden administration is making light of the situation.

When the question of supply chain problems was raised during a recent White House press briefing, Jen Psaki mocked the issue.

“Biden’s recent executive order, which was supposedly about “supply chain resilience,” actually says it’s about tapping into (aka draining) our National Defense Stockpile in order to push prices down in the short-term,” writes Chris Menahan.

“I don’t know whether we’re going to face serious food shortages or not but I do know the Biden regime wouldn’t tell us one word if they thought it would hurt them in any way politically.”

So-called “doomsday preppers” have also been smeared as domestic extremists by establishment media outlets like the New York Times.
