Asked why the government had not pursued criminal charges in a case where a large bank admitted to money laundering for drug interests, Attorney General Eric Holder said: “I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them when we are hit with indications that if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal charge, it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps even the world economy.”
The people behind the downfall of the global markets and the very same people who are manipulating silver will not face charges despite admitting criminal activity! The laws that govern you and I no longer apply to them.
They are above government.
The government cannot control their activities any more and as stated above, cannot even touch the people behind these crimes. The government, the representatives of the people, have thrown in the towel on our behalf. That's like a boxer throwing in his own towel.
The above is the most clearly made statement that the banks have assumed control. They no longer need to work behind the scenes. Sure, the may have promised not to do too illegal of a thing but if history has taught us anything...
