Conspiracy theories rool suckers!!

And what a fab week this has been for those of us who desperately wish a few more of our fellow citizens would join us in being at least open to the possibility that bad people sometimes do bad sneaky things without, horror of horrors, confessing to doing them in national newspapers afterwards

Yup, just having that kind of open mind is all that all it takes for dickheads to follow their programming and label you as being mad and wicked these days

It's getting harder though...

First, we were treated to copious footage of rock-wielding policemen dressed as anarchists infiltrating a peaceful demonstration

And now Robert Fisk - the journalist who 'despises the Internet' has just put out a piece in the Independent that suggests, knock me down with a feather, that there are one or two unanswered questions about 9/11

Even I !!

What a pompous knob

Well, he's only six years too late. I wonder how long he would have taken to write that piece if that Internet he despises so much didn't exist.

So, at the current rate it's going to take our national newspapers another four years to cotton onto the fact that the 'Official Narrative' of 7/7 is bollocks and that Jean Charles de Menezes clearly wasn't carrying a bomb.

I make that some time around June 2011

It's just as well that all these events aren't being used as an excuse to pull off all sorts of heinous shit in the interim. No real hurry then...

Stef, maybe slightly OT but big bets are being placed on a stock market collapse by September. Something similar happened pre 9/11 and you'd never get caught in the present environment. What better time to yank the market down with another 9/11 and blame economic collapse on Al Qaeda. Take a look here -

Also, I see that '4th bomb' Dan is charging £900 for a 15 minute interview. You pay via Paypal for the item named 'Obachike Interview Slot'. All credibility has gone methinks, not that he had much to begin with. See here

I see that his 4th bomb site is now a pure sales pitch for his book, whereas before it was about (badly) explaining what happened on 7/7.

If you cup your hand to your ears and listen very carefully you'll probably just be able to make out the sound of me sighing in the distance...

Not sure what you're sighing about Stef, but I suspect it's Mr Obachike making a bit of a tit out of himself. He's a Brixtonite and a regular on ligali's forums and from what I've read has come out with plenty of nonsense.

Anyway, I've run the sus options trading thing past someone who trades for a living and they reckon that maybe someone is betting on an Armageddon scenario. They make money if the S&P500 is below 900 versus 1440 or so today. Banks collapsing, a nuke in the US - who knows? If you're interested (and you maybe aren't) there's a long thread here

Whatever is going on, they expire on 21 Sept so I guess we'll see what happens.

You commented about the 9/11 put option trading a few posts back, someone did an academic study on it here

Your suspicion is well-founded

Thanks for the links - am heading their way now

We don't know if it's a VERY distressed financial institution trying to raise money in a VERY unconventional way in a VERY fucked up financial environment, some kind of VERY unusual hedging activity (probably connected to the recent 'financial turmoil') or something more sinister. These options expire on Sept 21st ie they become worthless and are useless on that date (as I understand things). It might all come to nothing, but here's a quote from the (massively long) tickerforum thread for Conspiraloons (TM) everywhere :-

"There are 65,000 contracts @ $750.00 for the SPX 700 calls for open interest. That controls 6.5 million shares at $750 = $4.5 Billion. Not a single trade. But quite a bit of $$ on a contract that is 700 points away from current value. No one would buy that deep in the money calls. No reason to. So if they were sold looks like someone betting on massive dislocation. Lots of very strange option activity that I haven't seen before. I've been doing this about 25 years."

Any city traders reading and want to comment?

Probably nothing Stef, and there are loads of these, but this one is extra important as it's by King of all Conspiraloons Wayne Madsen (and very recent) Chatter about an "incident" on West Coast at all time high

Again, probably nothing and I really should be dosed to the eyeballs with antipsychotics under the care of my Friendly Local NHS Mental Health Trust (TM).

You don't need to be much of a financial analyst to predict a market crisis in September. Every summer market shock in history has directly lead to a crisis in Sept/Oct because ... the big hitters get back from holiday.

This time around its as good as a dead cert. Just you have to get the day right to make a killing and it wouldn't surprise me if someone tries to tip the market over the precipice on purpose; it won't take much.
