The Facebook Fiasco

Written By Pastor

Yeah this Facebook story gets funnier by the day, all sorts of stuff coming to light, here are some interesting tidbits I've picked up over the last few days:

--2 days before the FB IPO, GM decides to pull its advertising from Facebook LOL
--Morgan Stanley, the primary underwriter, has an analysist who downgraded Facebook the day before the trading opened on Friday by revising down its earning estimates.  On CNBC it was stated that this is extremely unusual.
--Other co-underwriters like JP Morgan also had analysis downgrade the stock, again by revising down earning estimates the day before trading opened on Friday.  On CNBC is was stated that this is extremely unusual.
--Shares of Facebook have been trading on the 'private' market for over 3 years, at much lower prices than the IPO price of $38.  Goldman Sachs picked up a huge chunk of these shares a year ago.
--Much of the volume on the first day of trading on Friday was the selling of shares purchased by the those allowed to buy them in the private market over the past 3 years, for significant profit.
--For all of the big IPOs in recent years, never once have I logged into my Etrade account and seen an option to get in on it - for Facebook, they had a large home page banner up for weeks leading up to the IPO, offering me a chance to get in on it.
--It's been insinuated that Morgan Stanley, to cover their ass, did swoop in as Tvis mentioned and start piling their own money into it on Friday and Monday to hold up the price.  One analyst on CNBC pointed out that even though they may lose money that it would be worth it for them to do to save face in the grand scheme of things, that the damage to their reputation could be minimized for future IPO underwriting opportunities.
--The $38 IPO price equates to a valuation of the company trading at a roughly 50 price/earnings (P/E) ratio.  Apple currently trades at 11 P/E, Google 15 P/E - no one in their right mind would even think about buying FB at 3x a reasonable P/E ratio.  50 P/E ratios are screaming shorts, which undoubtedly is going on right now, the same folks who profited from the $38 IPO price are now shorting the shit out of FB.
--Option contracts are not yet available on FB, leaving investors unable to buy any Put protection to protect themselves from downside risk.  I believe the first options will be available this Thursday, which does the pity FB investors a lot of good now huh.

I also heard a comment about FB 'saving the market' LMAO.  I have heard of this before, earlier this year Apple was given credit for most of the rally in the S&P 500 this year, which incidentally turned out to be true according to the breakdowns I've looked at.  The S&P wouldn't be much better than flat for the year if you took out AAPL's absurd rise.

Funny stuff, just a huge criminal operation, operates every day, every IPO is rigged, but this one was rigged to allow the private share holders to cash out at an absurd valuation.  Usually they're rigged by only allowing the privileged few to get in on the IPO, then for the IPO to have a huge pop when trading begins, allowing those privileged few to get out in the first day or so with a huge profit.

One thing I need to know is how often are these 'private market' shares floating around for companies prior to an IPO -  I got the distinct impression that for FB this private share market was unusual in multiple ways.  Need to dig into that, probably won't though, no time.

Oh It's On Now!!

US Media Ignores Underwear Bomber Passenger's Statement, Kurt Haskell

Tim Osman aka Bin Laden

Bush Admits To Planting Fake News Stories

Entire US Media Ignores Passenger's Claim Government Lied About Underwear Bomber?

One of the top stories in the world today was about the sentencing of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian who tried to blow up a flight near Detroit on behalf of al-Qaida. The media gave the basic report of the sentencing and filtered version of the events of that day. 

What is fascinating is despite all the news crews covering today's sentencing not a single mainstream media outlet mentioned the fact a passenger on that plane, attorney Kurt Haskell, gave a 5 minute statement that refuted the entire official government narrative of that days events. His statement clearly laid out the events that he and his wife Lori Haskell witnessed. This included many documented facts that no one in the media would dare mention. Kurt pointed out Umar was escorted through security without a passport by a man in a suit who spoke English. He explained in great detail that upon landing no precautions were taken for the passengers. Kurt told the FBI about the man in the sharp dressed suit who aided Umar but they were uninterested. The statement he gave is both well documented and profound in nature. The most damaging information Kurt Haskell pointed out in his statement was the fact

 "Patrick Kennedy of the State Department during Congressional hearings, admitted that Umar was a known terrorist, was being followed, and the U.S. allowed him into the U.S. so that it could catch Umar’s accomplices. I was once again shocked and saddened when Michael Leiter of the National Counter terrorism Center admitted during these same hearings that intentionally letting terrorists into the U.S. was a frequent practice of the U.S. Government."
Kurt and his wife Lori have been truthful and bold in telling the truth about what happened that day. What I find fascinating is that not ONE SINGLE mainstream news agency found his allegations even newsworthy. What has happened to journalism in this country? Did none of the reporters in attendance today find anything this well respected attorney had to say the least bit interesting or even crazy? Would one not expect at least a single article pointing out the crazy passenger who claims the government is not telling the truth? It seems as though only alternative news outlets and bloggers like Infowars found this to even be newsworthy. We should really ask ourselves why the media totally ignored what Kurt Haskell had to say today. Could it be because they could go to google and type in "Patrick Kennedy underwear bomber" and find out Kurt is telling the truth they do not want you to know about this incident. I will provide a small list of many links pointing you to more information about what Kurt and Lori Haskell saw that day since the journalists who get paid the big bucks seemed to have missed this story.

Nigerian Underwear Bomber to Get Life Sentence

Underwear Bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, Sentenced to Life in Prison...

Underwear bomber's family shocked by case

Posted: Thursday, February 16, 2012 3:42 pm
The family of a Nigerian man sentenced to life in prison for trying to destroy an international jetliner says the case brought them "tremendous shock."
Nine members of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's (OO'-mahr fah-ROOK' ahb-DOOL'-moo-TAH'-lahb) family traveled to Detroit but did not attend Thursday's hearing. Abdulmutallab is the son of Umaru Mutallab, a wealthy Nigerian banker.
In a statement, the family says anyone who knew Abdulmutallab would believe he'd be the "last person" to try to blow up a plane for al-Qaida. It also says the family is grateful that no one was seriously hurt.
The statement suggests the family doesn't agree with the sentence of life without parole. Just two days into last October's trial, Abdulmutallab pleaded guilty to trying to bring down Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on Christmas 2009.

Kurt Haskell's Entire Statement At Underwear Bomber's Trial

I wish to thank the Court for allowing me these 5 minutes to make my statement. My references to the government in this statement refer to the Federal Government excluding this Court and the prosecution. On Christmas Day 2009, my wife and I were returning from an African safari and had a connecting flight through Amsterdam. As we waited for our flight, we sat on the floor next to the boarding gate. What I witnessed while sitting there and subsequent events have changed my life forever. While I sat there, I witnessed Umar dressed in jeans and a white t-shirt, being escorted around security by a man in a tan suit who spoke perfect American English and who aided Umar in boarding without a passport. The airline gate worker initially refused Umar boarding until the man in the tan suit intervened. The event meant nothing to me at the time. Little did I know that Umar would try to kill me a few hours later as our flight approached Detroit. The final 10 minutes of our flight after the attack were the worst minutes of my life. During those 10 minutes I sat paralyzed in fear. Unfortunately, what happened next has had an even greater impact on my life and has saddened me further.
When we landed, I was shocked that our plane taxied up to the gate. I was further shocked that we were forced to sit on the plane for 20 minutes with powder from the so called bomb all over the cabin. The officers that boarded the plane did nothing to ensure our safety and did not check for accomplices or other explosive devices. Several passengers trampled through parts of the bomb as they exited the plane. We were then taken into the terminal with our unchecked carry on bags. Again, there was no concern for our safety even though Umar told the officers that there was another bomb on board as he exited the plane. I wondered why nobody was concerned about our safety, accomplices or other bombs and the lack of concern worried me greatly. I immediately told the FBI my story in order to help catch the accomplice I had seen in Amsterdam. It soon became obvious that the FBI wasn’t interested in what I had to say, which upset me further. For one month the government refused to admit the existence of the man in the tan suit before changing course and admitting his existence in an ABC News article on January 22, 2010. That was the last time the government talked about this man. The video that would prove the truth of my account has never been released. I continue to be emotionally upset that the video has not been released. The Dutch police, meanwhile, in this article (show article), also confirmed that Umar did not show his passport in Amsterdam which also meant that he didn’t go through security as both are in the same line in Amsterdam. It upsets me that the government refuses to admit this fact.
I became further saddened from this case, when Patrick Kennedy of the State Department during Congressional hearings, admitted that Umar was a known terrorist, was being followed, and the U.S. allowed him into the U.S. so that it could catch Umar’s accomplices. I was once again shocked and saddened when Michael Leiter of the National Counter terrorism Center admitted during these same hearings that intentionally letting terrorists into the U.S. was a frequent practice of the U.S. Government. I cannot fully explain my sadness, disappointment and fear when I realized that my government allowed an attack on me intentionally.
During this time, I questioned if my country intentionally put a known terrorist onto my flight with a live bomb. I had many sleepless nights over this issue. My answer came shortly thereafter. In late 2010, the FBI admitted to giving out intentionally defective bombs to the Portland Christmas Tree Bomber,the Wrigley Field Bomber and several others. Further, Mr. Chambers was quoted in the Free Press on January 11, 2011 when he indicated that the government’s own explosives experts had indicated that Umar’s bomb was impossibly defective. I wondered how that could be. Certainly, I thought, Al Qaeda wouldn’t go through all of the trouble to plan such an attack only to provide the terrorist with an impossibly defective bomb.
I attended nearly all of the pretrial hearings. At the hearing on January 28, 2011, I was greatly disappointed by the prosecution’s request to block evidence from Mr. Chambers “as it could then be able to be obtained by third parties, who could use it in a civil suit against the government”. It really bothered me that the government apparently was admitting to wrongdoing of some kind as it admitted that it was concerned it would be sued. It further upset me to know that the government was putting its own interests ahead of those of the passengers.
When I attended the jury selection hearings, I questioned why versions of the same two questions kept coming up, those being:
1. Do you think you’ll be able to tell whether something is actually a bomb? and
 2. Do you realize that sometimes the media doesn’t always tell the truth?
I continued to be greatly saddened at this point as I felt the truth continued to be hidden.
When Umar listed me as his only witness, I was happy to testify, not on his behalf, but on behalf of the truth. I never expected to testify, as my eyewitness account would have been too damaging to the myth that the government and media are putting forward. A mere 5 days after I was announced as a witness, there was an inexplicable guilty plea which exasperated me as I no longer would be testifying.
In closing I will just say that regardless of how the media and government try to shape the public perception of this case, I am convinced that Umar was given an intentionally defective bomb by a U.S. Government agent and placed on our flight without showing a passport or going through security, to stage a false terrorist attack to be used to implement various government policies.
The effect this matter has had on my life has been astounding and due to this case, I will never trust the government in any matter, ever.
In regards to sentencing, nothing I’ve said excuses the fact that Umar tried to kill me. He has waived his valid claim to the entrapment defense. Umar, you are not a great Muslim martyr, you are merely a “Patsy”. I ask the court to impose the mandatory sentence.

Iran Falsely Charged with India and Georgia Attacks

by Stephen Lendman

Last October, Iran was falsely charged with a fake terror plot that didn’t pass the smell test. At best, it resembled a bad film script too implausible to believe.
Tehran was bogusly blamed for plotting to kill Saudi Arabia’s US ambassador. According to spurious accusations, an Iranian/American used car salesman and Mexican drug cartel hired assassin were involved.
You can’t make this stuff up, but major media scoundrels headlined it for days. They regurgitated a scheme too implausible to believe.
Official lies substituted for proof. They’re repeated to incite fear and justify retaliatory measures with public support. They include belligerence if ordered.
Unasked always is cui bono. Clearly, Iran’s only harmed by alleged terrorist attacks against America, NATO partners, Israel, or their allies. In contrast, Washington and Tel Aviv benefit greatly. As a result, new charges follow old ones.

Monsanto found guilty of chemical poisoning in France

Monsanto found guilty of chemical poisoning in France - BlackListedNews.com

A French court has declared the US biotech giant Monsanto guilty of chemical poisoning of a French farmer, a judgment that could lend weight to other health claims against pesticides.

In the first such case heard in court in France, the grain grower Paul Francois, 47, said he suffered neurological problems including memory loss, headaches and stammering after inhaling Monsanto’s Lasso weedkiller in 2004.

He blames Monsanto for not providing adequate warnings on the product label.

The ruling was given by a court in Lyon, south-east France, which ordered an expert opinion of Francois’s losses to establish the amount of damages.

“It is a historic decision in so far as it is the first time that a [pesticide] maker is found guilty of such a poisoning,” Francois Lafforgue, Francois’s lawyer, told Reuters.

Monsanto said it was disappointed by the ruling and would examine whether to appeal against the judgment.

“Monsanto always considered that there were not sufficient elements to establish a causal relationship between Paul Francois’s symptoms and a potential poisoning,” the company’s lawyer, Jean-Philippe Delsart, said.

Previous health claims from farmers have foundered because of the difficulty of establishing clear links between illnesses and exposure to pesticides.

Lieberman: Time for U.S. to arm ‘brave’ Syrian rebels

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) said Sunday that the United States should provide medical aid, training and arms to those seeking to oust President Bashar al-Assad.
“The reality on the ground is since the U.N. resolution was vetoed by Russian and Iran [sic], the Assad government has begun to kill its own people with increasing frequency,” he said on CNN’sState of the Union.
Russia and China have vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution aimed at halting Syria’s bloody 11-month crackdown on dissent.

Marine scout snipers used Nazi SS logo

Marine Corps scout snipers used the logo of the notorious Nazi SS organization while in Afghanistan in 2010, the service acknowledged Thursday.
The logo appeared on a flag in a photograph of the platoon taken in September 2010 in Sangin district, a hotly contested area in Helmand province. The Marines were with Charlie Company, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, out of Camp Pendleton, Calif., and are shown sitting in combat gear with the U.S. flag and a blue flag with the stylized “SS” logo hanging behind them.
The logo also appears on a 7.62mm M40 sniper rifle carried by a Marine in another photograph distributed Thursday by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. Information embedded electronically with the image shows that it was released by the Marine Corps in 2004 and taken at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms, Calif. The two Marines in it were with the scout sniper platoon with 1st Battalion, 7th Marines.

Iran War Would Cost Trillions: Will the GOP Pay More Taxes for That?

While GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul is doing all he can in this election cycle to gin up a debate about US foreign policy and a measure of the costs and benefits, the debate about Iran, China, Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel's security has been taking place in a gravityless environment.  

Mitt Romney's opening foreign policy opus at the Citadel criticized Obama for defense cuts with promises to boost America's defense commitments abroad, to boost military spending on hardware and ships in the Pacific -- to do everything we have been doing but more.

Al Qaeda Backs US Regime Change in Syria

Tony CartalucciInfowars.com
Monday, February 13, 2012
It is now a matter of established public record that the “Libyan rebels” the US, through the UN and NATO, funded, armed, trained, recognized politically, and even provided special forces and air support for, were in fact led by the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), listed by the US State Department (page 1) as a “Foreign Terrorist Organization.” Two West Point reports confirm that LIFG was formally joined with Al Qaeda with many of its top leaders constituting the core of Al Qaeda’s upper echelons.

Loud Boom Heard Over South Carolina, Meteor To Blame?

Officials in Spartanburg County said a large boom heard by many people in the Upstate Monday morning may be a meteor. Law enforcement saw a large ball of fire that popped in the air around 1:45 a.m. Monday.  Viewers from Greenville to Cherokee Counties called 7 On Your Side saying they heard the noise and their homes shook.  No one was hurt. 
Even a handful of gravel that enters the Earth’s atmosphere at speeds much greater than the speed of sound (possibly at speeds of tens of thousands miles per hour) will create a spectacular light show and make noise; such particles would likely not survive the trip down as they would all burn up along the way.
Millions of these enter the atmosphere every day; most of the ones that cause sky flashes are only pebble/gravel sized and unlikely to survive the trip to land.

US Threatens Iran, Again

The commander of the US Navy base in Bahrain has warned that US forces are prepared for a strike against Iran over the country’s nuclear program.

"We have built a wide range of options to give the president and we are ready... We are ready today," Vice Admiral Mark Fox said at the headquarters of the 5th Fleet in Manama on Sunday. 

Fox said he took Iran's military capabilities seriously as it is "capable of striking a blow" to American forces in the Persian Gulf. 

The United States has recently intensified its war rhetoric against Iran to put more pressure on the country and stop its peaceful nuclear program. The threats come following the failure of US-led sanctions against Tehran. 

US President Barack Obama has repeatedly threatened that all options are on the table regarding Tehran, including a military attack against nuclear facilities

CNN the main network for pushing new invasions and wars ran a story on their front page today claiming the Syrian government was now using human shields. However if you read the article. There are two fairly telling admissions

#1"CNN cannot independently confirm details of the fighting in Syria because the government has severely limited the access of international journalists."

#2"Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri weighed in on the conflict as well, in a new video posted online Saturday, calling al-Assad "the butcher son of a butcher" and praising the Syrian people for waging "jihad.""
