MORE BANKER SUICIDES… AND MORE HIGH OCTANE SPECULATION…

The dead bodies in the banking business just keep piling up, this time, in LIchtenstein, where a banker has been found murdered, and in the Netherlands, where a banker, his wife, and young daughter, are victims:

Lichtenstein bank CEO Frick Murdered

48 Year Old Man Killed in Bank Garage

Former Bank Helped Trigger Collapse

By now, it is (or at least should be) obvious to any reasonable person that all these suicides, from the unfortunate Chinese banker in Hong Kong, to the murder by defenestration that we’ve seen in New York and London with JP Morgan bankers, and now to Lichtenstein, Holland, and Scotland connections, are all somehow related and not accidental. We are now in a distinct and definite pattern. We are looking at murder. Look at what the stories have added up to thus far:

  1. The “suicides” and murders have global extent, from China to Lichtenstein, thus suggesting that whatever is behind these murders is something of global extent;
  2. The suicides have been connected to allegations of fraud(as in the case of Herr Frick), or are tied to areas of finance where there has been rampant financial fraud, such as mortages, and the “suicide” by nail gun of Colorado mortgage title businessman, Richard Talley;
  3. The suicides have shown a consistent pattern of people connected to the computer-related aspects of finance, suggesting elements connected to high frequency trading and international financial clearing.

The question is, why all the murders?

One very obvious answer is suggested by the case of Lichtenstein banker Juergen Frick, one of the more recent victims, and clearly a murder victim, and that is the allegation of he raised of fraud. I have suggested this before, in connection with the hidden system of finance that I have argued was put into place after World War Two as a completely off the books system of finance designed as a covert (and vast) slush fund to finance secret research of a long term and exotic nature, and to fund covert operations. This has meant that the national security apparatus of the USA became involved in international banking (and therefore, its adjunct, clearing) at a very early period in the postwar world, and hence, the protection of this system, should anyone discover its internal workings or threaten to expose it, would be a national security secret, and certainly one that its managers would commit murder to protect.

In the operations of such a system, however, fraud becomes the norm, and hence, another reason for the evident pattern offers itself, and that is simply that with all the bad paper floating around – particularly in the wake of the credit default swaps and derivatives that were created prior to the crash of 2008 – evidence of the vast amounts of capital tied up in those securities has to be eliminated. We could, in other words, be looking at the liquidation of “loose ends” as the international financial community scrambles to reset back to normalcy, burning and shredding the bad paper, and anyone with deep knowledge of it. This has been the view argued in various places by my colleague Catherine Austin Fitts, to a certain extent.

But the Frick and Schmittmann cases linked above suggest another high octane speculative possibility, namely, that these bankers may be comparing notes, and coming to some interesting conclusions, conclusions I suggested yesterday in my blog about Goldman Sach’s breathtaking and apparent withdrawal (for the moment) from one of its own High Frequency Trading “dark pools”. What if Herr Frick discovered, during the course of his lawsuit, that the entity he had assumed had defrauded him, really hadn’t, but rather, that it had been used by some other entity, that it had been hacked, as it were, and that no one, at least in the public aspect of the system, had defrauded him at all? What if he had discovered evidence that the entire system of international clearing had been hacked and was under someone else’s control? In such a situation, one might hold panicked meetings in quiet board rooms, deciding what to do to protect one’s assets, electronic or otherwise, and one might, like Goldman Sachs, decide on a moratorium on involvement in any system it suspected may have been compromised. One would also, I imagine, put out the quiet word that everyone in “the business” would have to be carefully monitored, and, if they came to close to this explosive secret, or were suspected of possibly going public with it, quietly advised to remain quiet about it.

Such a secret would, of course, be explosive and, if true, and made public, could severely damage the financial system, already battered from lack of trust. What if they have discovered the presence of “something else” in the financial system they thought they were in control of, something that was executing trades in clear contradiction to their own buy or sell orders, and even in some cases overriding them? There are three possibilities for such a “hidden trader,” and I have mentioned one of them, but there are two others, and all three of them would be explosive news, if one had access to the numbers, orders, and programs, and could make a demonstrative and irrefutable case… that case would be a secret both worth exposing, and commiting murder to prevent from being exposed.

See you on the flip side.

  1. At the Belgium /Duych border a banker was murdered with a young child and stepmom of that child….this happened today the 19 th . ““`brutally shot outside a house ….The utch : NOS news did not have any more details…………

    Dear Joseph,

    It is getting out of hand! What is going on and why are we (the masses ) still in limbo /kept there and/or not taking action for a peaceful REVOLUTION !!!!!!!!!!!! ? WHY r we so complacent ?

    yours , so much obliged !

  2. I read that China is going to launch 20 new satellites in the next few years. Wonder if it has anything to do with this issue, or China is now expecting solid land assets in the US and these satellites would help keep track of China’s industrial zones that are being set up in the US. Idaho has one of these areas with attendant Agenda 21 regulations attached to it.

    These things are being set up all over the US. It’s a land grab by the Chinese government.

    • Unfortunately true. The country’s natural resources are being taken over to advance UN Agenda 21 initiatives and to collateralize our China debt and that’s the real story behind the BLM showdown at the Bundy Ranch in Clark Co., Nevada this past week. It’s not about threatened tortoises or past-due grazing fees; it’s an outright land grab for a billion dollar Chinese solar farm and energy project negotiated by Sen. Harry Reid. Clark Co. is Free Trade Zone 89. (FTZs become foreign sovereign territories and are exempt from local and state laws.) Read the sordid details about the Bundy Ranch fiasco at Jerome Corsi’s ‘Reid Smelling Anything But Rosy in Ranch Fight” and Susanne Posel’s ‘The Real Truth Behind Bundy Ranch Land-Grab in Nevada’.

            just heard on the radio this morning that detonating nuclear weapons withing the city limits carries a 500 dollar fine…

            America use to be a fear based materialistic economy, remember those kids hiding under there desks in the nuke drills during the 50s ….I think were in a just eat zombie economy, even if it cause can sir who cares…look at that dude that made super size me….dead….nothing changed.
            They are handing out phds on zombie research….permanent head damage….the blind leading the blind.

      • Margaret,

        You check on which parties hold the most US debt before believing whatever Alex Jones is peddling today.

        • Lost you ever wonder why the Chinese flag was flying from the white house when Barry the Kenyan got elected.

          • j,

            No, I don’t.

            And such statements by generally are a distraction profoundly bad policies continued by the Obama administration.

            It’s not news that Obama’s father was from Kenya, who cares? Corsi is not a credible source, and is mostly a distraction like the above question posed by you.

          • Were having a discussion of China moving in and taking over food production on America soil.
            I would think you would be curious that the potus is not an American and flies the entity flag that is benefiting from it highest office.

            Although connecting cause and effects is something that some people cannot due and I respect that.

          • j:

            You mean that G W Bush isn’t from the USA? That’s who was in the White House when Obama was elected.

            Sorry, but with claims about Obama not being American you’re not strengthening your case. And in fact distracting from any points you make or made.

            Also despite what you read on the internets, China is not taking over food production in the USA.

            Also it’s G W Bush+Clinton who vastly helped China, you really need to read more than whatever Corsi is saying.

          • Obviously you are not a conspiracy investigator, and that is a nice thing to be…..just ignore my thoughts in the future and thank you for taking the time to express your views.

          • j-

            There’s difference between conspiracies that exist, example who shot RFK, and made up BS, example Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii. (Remember your mustache claims of a few weeks ago, that cited zero examples of usage of the term in that manner.)

            One could pretty easily say, that you’re not much of an investigator, simply a quoter. And a quoter of highly dubious sourcing.

          • ah yes the moustache, if you had a goatee and shaved half of it off you would have a bigot as in half re bi….

            goats are used to lead sheep to slaughter….what is used too lead a goat too slaughter?

            You know that when you colonize a nation, you force a loan on it. One of the tricks of the trade.

          • j-

            Didn’t take much to bring out your antisemitism there.

            Kind of predictable: There being a significant overlap with birthers.

      • It’s not China’s fault! Although the steering committee (old Gehlen Org) will make it appear as though it is…. This blame game is going to intensify as effects from the neighbors dumping the dollar begin to accelerate….the rapist blaming its victim. This is the fraudsters chickens coming home to roost…… having been fingered, are poised to shoot their way out of it—

        • Super video!

          amunaor,
          Having read, The Land Grabber: The New Fight Over Who Owns The Earth by Fred Pearce this rings all too true. The new land grab rush looks increasingly like a final enclosure of the planet’s wild places, a last roundup of the global commons.

          (Of course, Pearce just scratched the surface.)

          • Thanks Robert! I’ve put it on my buy list at Amazon.

            Reading the reviews stir up thoughts of Naomi Klein’s, Disaster Capitalism. Once the land is blessed with pyrotechnics, populations blessed by high-priests of plunder,re-ordained to ‘free-market’ principles, incorrigible’s disappeared, in come the capital vampires.

          • Thanks again Robert! The GlobalResearch article: Understanding the Cancer Stage of Capitalism, hits the bloody nail right on the head.

            These words succinctly define the miasma which has ensnared us, the GNP of an empire exsanguinated by a colossus of a military beast defending the rights of capital privilege whose high priests wield the dogma of an arrogant ‘science’; mad petro-chemical and pharmaceutical chemists, whose bottom-line profits, to the exclusion of all else, are the only concerns coursing through the veins of their phallic symbols piercing the skies.

            What pathology can possibly define the desire to ‘Own the Weather’ or use the latent forces within Earth as a weapon? Such vacuous ambitions can only be spawned in the lower psyche of human depravity. We won’t find any good intent here, only marketing strategies for speculators to bet on, weather and food-price swings, and war making with those who don’t comply. The gift of fire within the hands of barbarians!

            It’s the ‘science’ that’s killing us; a cold ‘science’ whose unimpeachable dogma teaches us that life is an accident, has no meaning or purpose; panders to the physical senses so markets can flog consumption of unnecessary trinkets and baubles.

            Now that the vampires – Captains of Industry – have nearly drained and trashed our host, once the ‘breakaway gang’ has safely lifted its feet from terra firma, what will be their intentions for the residuals? Will Monsanto, the new IG Farben, convert the 6.5-billion leftovers into new pools of bitumen deposits for future speculators?

  3. I wonder what fate of the alleged hit man will be Oswald style or Christopher Dolan barbecue. So the financial bigwigs have decided to do their rub outs South American drug lords as well as Mafia style. What next a grand St. Valentine Massacre or The Dirty Dozen crematorium to clean up their mess. Anyone wants to bet on how many murder, suicide are plan before this financial situation is finally cleared up.

  4. A secret or disguised trader, okay, but not a new idea.

    What if they (the dead banking employees) discovered that there something far more valuable than whatever they’re trading, in whatever currency. No, not some hidden sourcing of financing run by the City of London, the European Central Bank, the US Fed, in gold or not, etc, but something that would disrupt the value of those secret, seemingly nearly all powerful, players.

    The only way investment bankers make serious returns anymore is one having credit to gamble with and two is to stay about 6 months ahead of what will be obvious and public information in 6 or 12 months. What if both are next to valueless? Made so by new ideas, and tech, well, “new” not really.
