  • Soros Dumps Gold And Buys Penney's.

    If you google Soros and Me, Soros and Alex Gabor and Soros and JC Penney you come up with the following stories linked at the end of this insta blog.

    Now Gabor S. Acs, comes forth to acknowledge the symbolic message that George Soros has sent to the world by buying an 8% stake in JCP.

    Gabor S. Acs, in his first public statement since becoming the worlds first trillionaire as confirmed by the Church of Infinitology and the Infinite Freedom Foundations, acknowledges that "George Soros Senior is the worlds second trillionaire and his son is the worlds third".

    Gabor wants to speak to the Soros Funds and the two men who have inherited the wealth created by him beginning in 1988, and later in 2003, when he met George Soros Senior at Berkley during a lecture on the Alchemy of Finance.

    Gabor had to fake his death in Soap Lake to get away from stalkers, abusive ex wives and wannabe girlfriends in 2010. Gabor is known in various public circles as the Penny King because he started buying pennies for a nickel from homeless people in Portland in 1993. Nowadays his non profit buys them for $10.00 each.

    Gabor now wants to team up with Ackman and George Soros Senior and Junior to take JC Penny Private in a $5 Billion leveraged buyout.

    The price initially discussed for such a buyout would be around $30 to $50 per share depending on the spinnoff of the real estate and cyber assets held by the company.

    "JC Penny is worth around $5 Billion in a leveraged buyout proposition," says Gabor.

    George Soros and his Soros Fund Management recently got out of gold just before a more than 33% drop in gold prices. The message is very clear: Dump gold, short it, and buy Penney's, and save them for the future.

    Now Gabor S. Acs, comes forth to discuss taking Barrick Gold private and making it a subsidiary of Banner Corporation after taking over Washington Trust Bank and Peoples Banks in Washington State. That process is just beginning while BANR holds steady.

  • CFTC Announces Departure Of Office Of International Affairs Director Jacqueline H. Mesa; Sarah E. Josephson Announced As New Director

    Washington, DC - Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Chairman Gary Gensler today announced that Office of International Affairs (NYSE:OIA) Director Jacqueline H. Mesa is leaving the agency for other pursuits. Chairman Gensler also announced that current Division of Clearing and Risk Deputy Director Sarah E. Josephson will take over immediately following Ms. Mesa's departure. Both changes will take place on May 10.

    "Jackie has done an exceptional job representing the Commission internationally and promoting global swaps market reform. She has been instrumental in building close working relationships with our counterparts overseas," said Chairman Gensler. "I am thrilled that another talented leader of our agency, Sarah Josephson, will take on these duties. She also has been an excellent representative of the Commission abroad, and will ensure a seamless transition as we continue working with international regulators on market reforms that protect the public."

    Ms. Mesa has served as the agency's Director of OIA since 2006 and has been with the agency for 15 years. She led a broad array of initiatives designed to enhance coordination and cooperation with foreign authorities. She has been the lead advisor to the Commission on international issues and cross-border regulatory matters, most recently regarding implementation of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act).

    Ms. Mesa also represented the CFTC in international organizations such as the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO). Ms. Mesa served as chairman of IOSCO's Committee 7 on Commodity Derivative Markets that developed principles for the Supervision of Commodity Derivative Markets and Principles for Oil Price Reporting Agencies. Under Ms. Mesa's leadership, the OIA has increased its duties, working with foreign regulators to achieve consistent laws across borders and developing arrangements with foreign counterparts for cooperative supervision.

    Ms. Mesa said, "I thank Chairman Gensler, the Commissioners and prior CFTC Chairs for whom I served for the honor to represent the Commission abroad. I am lucky to have worked with dedicated staff throughout the agency and colleagues from around the world on new and challenging issues. It was an experience for which I will always be grateful."

    Ms. Mesa has served in various roles in the Commission since 1998, and she served as a trial attorney and Assistant Chief Counsel, International, in the CFTC's Division of Enforcement. Prior to joining the CFTC, Ms. Mesa was an assistant attorney general in the Missouri Attorney General's Office. She received her JD at University of Missouri and her Bachelor's degree at Rhodes College.

    As a Deputy Director in the Division of Clearing and Risk, Ms. Josephson has been responsible for overseeing the implementation of the CFTC's first mandatory clearing determinations. She has played a leading role in the CFTC's Dodd-Frank rulemaking process, including work on rules related to swaps clearing and business conduct standards for swap dealers. In 2011, Ms. Josephson served as counsel to Chairman Gary Gensler.

    Over the past several years, Ms. Josephson has worked with domestic and international authorities to coordinate the regulation of over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives. She served on a joint project by the Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems (NASDAQ:CPSS) and IOSCO's Technical Committee to establish new international standards for payment, clearing, and settlement systems. Ms. Josephson worked with international counterparts in establishing the OTC Derivatives Regulators' Forum, a group formed in 2009 to provide international financial regulators, including market regulators, central banks, and banking supervisors, with a means to cooperate, exchange views, and share information related to clearinghouses and trade repositories for OTC derivatives. Ms. Josephson also has represented the CFTC on the OTC Derivatives Working Group and the OTC Derivatives Supervisors Group to coordinate global regulators on common reforms for OTC derivatives markets.

    Before joining the CFTC, Ms. Josephson served as a law clerk for Judge Myron H. Bright on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and was an associate at Mayer Brown LLP. She received her J.D. with honors from Georgetown University Law Center in 2001 and earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Georgetown University in 1998, graduating magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa.

  • New CFTC Anti-Fraud Resources Released For Financial Capability Month
    George Soros Dumped Gold and Bought Penny's.

    Washington, DC - President Obama proclaimed April as National Financial Capability Month stating, "All Americans deserve the chance to turn their hard work into a decent living."

    Financial fraud, including Ponzi schemes, can turn all that hard work into nothing but memories and unrealized dreams.

    The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is part of the effort to fight fraud, having filed a number of cases charging fraud among the 102 enforcement cases brought in fiscal year 2012.

    To also help combat financial fraud, the CFTC's Office of Consumer Outreach is making available new print resources to help consumers learn ways to protect themselves from frequently encountered and potentially devastating commodity futures trading frauds. Print brochures and the book, Ponzimonium, written by CFTC Commissioner Bart Chilton, are available for free download. These materials are available to the public on CFTC's consumer resources web page. Hard copies of the materials can also be ordered through the Federal Citizen Information Center at or by calling 800.FED.INFO (800.333.4636).
