ChiltonIs it Mission Accomplished for the CFTC’s “Good Cop”?
In a statement just released by the CFTC, Bart Chilton has sent President Obama notice that he will be stepping down from his position as a CFTC Commissioner.

Chilton’s full statement on position limits & resigning from the CFTC is below:

imagesBloomberg has reported that the US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is considering taking a role in managing the $19.4 Trillion in American’s retirement accounts.
Yes, you read that correctly, the government agency created in 2010 as part of Dodd-Frank is weighing ‘helping’ Americans manage their retirement funds…naturally by protecting them with the safety and security of Treasury bonds.

As we have been warning readers for nearly 2 years here at SD, the coming risk of confiscation is not in your gold and silver investments (the American public has nothing to confiscate), but in your pension, 401k, and IRA retirement funds through forced allocations of US Treasury paper.

Those who are unwilling to take the tax hit and get out of Dodge in time will likely soon find themselves directly funding the US ponzi scheme through their retirement funds.

CFTC Commissioner Jill Sommers, who is famous for voting in favor of TBTF bankers interests nearly 100% of the time has just announced her resignation from the CFTC.

In other news, The Vampire Squid and The Morgue are duking it out vying for an alumni to replace Sommers.

When the $1 QUADRILLION plus derivatives market fails, the inventor of the financial weapon of mass destruction known as the derivatives market- Blythe Masters could quite literally surpass Lenin and Mao Tse-tung as the person responsible for the greatest loss of human life in history.
The Columbia Business School recently conducted an interactive debate entitled “Financial Innovation: A Risky Business?with the aforementioned Blythe Masters of JPMorgan, along with Barny Frank, Gary Gensler, and a panel of experts debating the merits of financial innovation.

The one thing we can say with certainty after watching the 65 minute discussion/debate: (other than that there is a reason that Joe-6 Pack has no comprehension of what is facing the derivatives and entire financial market when the first domino fails) is don’t expect the CFTC led by Goldman alum Gensler to take ANY action against Blythe’s commodities division at JPM over alleged silver manipulation.
