No sooner had I completed last Thursday's News and Views from the Nefarium on the death of Chinese banking regulator Li Jinhua, and the Belgian banker, his wife, and nine-year old nephew, than I received from many people the breaking news that yet another banker, this time in France, had jumped to her death in Paris. The story was reported, once again, by Zero Hedge:

52 Year Old French banker jumps to her death in Paris after questioning her superiors

There's not much to go on here, and that raises my suspicion meters into the red zone. The article makes clear that as of April 24 (Thursday), Mme. Lydia X's surname was being withheld, presumably while French authorities had time to notify her family. But there are other curious omissions from the story. We are not told, for example, what department of the bank (Bred-Banque-Populaire) Mme Lydia X was employed in. The article does state, in its garbled translation from the French, that Mme X decided to jump apparently after "questioning her superiors." Then, the bank(we are "informed"), states that Mme Lydia X had been in therapy for years.

Frankly, when I read that, I was sickened, for apparently there is no depth of sleaze to which the financial class will not stoop in order to deflect attention away from a story that only seems to grow, with each new week seeming to add yet more curious "suicides" and "mysterious deaths" and even Mafia-style murders of bankers who suddenly decide to talk a walk out the window, a flight from a roof, or to throw themselves in front of a train, or who have a sudden urge to use a nail gun on their skulls.

There's little getting around the implications here: (1) why was Mme Lydia X in therapy to begin with? That issue could either be highly relevant, or highly irrelevant, to the case. Was she in therapy because of job-related issues? or something purely personal? Again, the bank's sleaze factor here is a matter of concern, for if it knew she was in therapy, it likely had some idea as to why. So why withhold that information? Fear of lawsuits? or something else? Fear of lawsuits for divulging too much seems to be out of the picture, since the bank took the step of revealing the highly personal information about her therapy in the first place. Again, my suspicion meter goes into the red zone.

Then there's the sequence of events: (1) a banker consults her superiors, then (2) suddenly decides to take a walk out of a high rise window. The clear implication is that the two are causally related. So we're left, in my opinion, with the following two basic scenarios, both of which are speculative. One: Mme Lydia X consulted her superiors regarding some aspect of bank or wider financial policy, or perhaps brought information to them that she had discovered. In any case, the answers or responses of her superiors so unnerved her, or frightened her, that she immediately decided to end it all, and walk out the window.   Two: Mme Lydia X consulted her superiors regarding some aspect of bank or wider financial policy, or perhaps brought information to them that she had discovered. Her superiors immediately took action to silence Mme X by assisting her out the high rise window.

There's a context that should not be forgotten, for Mme X's window walk occurred mere days after the murder of the Belgian banker, his wife, and nine-year old nephew. In his case, he too worked for a French bank, in fact, for the largest French bank, the powerful BNP Paribas. So within mere days, the banker deaths have now spread to two French banks.

For once, I will leave the high octane speculations to the reader. For my part, I continue to suspect that the "death-by-nailgun" case of Richard Talley may hold an important key or clue to the puzzle.

See you on the flip side...

    Checking today I ran across:
    Suspicious Death of Bankers Are Now Classified As “Trade Secrets” by Federal Regulator. Seems at least 648 Billion Dollars in Life Insurance was due to the suicided beneficiaries: THE BANKS.
    Seems the sucided deaths were, …well EXTREMELY profitable!
    As the saying goes, “You can take that to the Bank!”.
    Well, the deaths of Bankers, …that is.

    when will Christine Lagarde jump?- or is she one of the major players nudging people out of un-openable skyscraper windows?- she may be out of sight at the moment but hardly out of mind in my estimation

    • DEBRA on April 26, 2014 at 7:43 pm

      When the Cabal is done with Christine they’ll just plant some French maid in her hotel room, pffftt ….

      But seriously, I think Christine “we-need-a-reset” Lagarde has made her bed with the rising Power of the East.

        “When the Cabal is done with Christine they’ll just plant some French maid in her hotel room, pffftt”- lol!- or waiter (but then again Lagarde is an extremely “butch” looking lass…ooh, forget it…)-

        you could be right that Lagarde has has changed pole-positions; in any case I think we shouldn’t rule her influence out nor that of Strauss-Kahn-

        be well-

    Thank you for the interesting articles and interviews.

    Perhaps what we have here are some banker allies. Like Nature’s Evarcha culicivora(spider) of Kenya that feeds on human blood, but never harms humans. It get all the human blood it needs by killing and eating mosquitoes(Banksters). Mosquitoes that haven’t fed on humans don’t have enough nutrition(corruption) for the spider(A Trust Buster)-it really needs the blood(to stop the madness)-but since it takes that blood from humans without ever hurting a human, it’s not a parasite of humans. If anything, since it eats mosquitoes(Banksters), the spider that drinks our blood is an ally of ours(within the Bankster system). So, metaphorically, it looks like the mosquitoes are trying to clean their house of the spider Evarcha culicivora.

    Yeah, the silence of the MSM on the banker deaths is deafening. Just imagine if Lady Ga Ga got “nailgunned”, we’d be reading it for a week. Yet these poor individuals have paid a very high price for working in a sector that has been “exposed” on numerous occasions, as being two points below real estate agents or used car salesmen.
    The only thing I now wonder about is how many more will there be?

    This gives yet another indication of how corrupt (insane?) our society has become. This pattern should be plastered all over the media, cops should be working overtime running down the perps – it is such an obvious pattern that a blind, three-toed sloth on downers could see it. But no, not our current “law en-farce-ment.” (With the possible exception of one Arizona sheriff . . . .)

    They are too busy worrying about people’s sexual preferences and playing commando to actually deal with real crime. That is why so many non-violent pot smokers are in prison while murderers walk the streets. (Oh, and we have to keep a certain number of prisoners in stir to meet the contracts with private prison firms . . . which tells us something important about all the “3 strikes” laws . . . .)

    We are so in “1984” (or the Matrix) it isn’t funny.

    Yeah, letting Big Business run everything with their “market” economy works really well . . . for them.

    It’s been said that accountants (and by extension, banksters) know the price of everything and the value of nothing. This is the kind of world which that kind of thinking creates.

    The number of bankers silence stands at 14 so far. Could it be how these bank financial officials died like in mob hits tell us the reason for their disposal. If they went sailing out a window or off a roof be for one indiscretion, hanging oneself for another indiscretion, coronary arrested for another indiscretion, nailgun another. As they say the dead tell no tales or do they if you know the code.

    The credibility of the MSM is failing fast. The silence on this primary trend is deafening . The new escalations in violence, has made it painfully obvious that there is a common thread that is blatantly being ignored..

    More too the point.
    In the “old days” the USSR was recognized for its less sophisticated propaganda/brain washing than the USA.
    Today, the “West” is becoming less sophisticated than even the old USSR.
    Dumb & Dumber have nothing on these
    The Dumbest – are the financial spinners of Banker suicideds.

      Just a side note.
      A new article from Natural News: Psychiatrists Now Say Non-Conformity Is A Mental Illness: Only The Sheeple Are ‘Sane’.

        Doncha think most of us saw THAT coming. When I mentioned to a friend of mine who is a psychologist that I didn’t think it was right to be actively gay, she told me in no uncertain terms that my opinion IS ILLEGAL! For me it was “ding, ding, ding”… the PC police are about to start arresting non-sheeple. If she has been given the impression that the “rules” were being set up, then they must extend to anyone who thinks that the government is acting “improperly”… as in audit the conservatives, or, hey, just arrest them.

      The “news” is all about the “money”.
      Just finished reading Jon Rappoport’s story of Sharyl Attkison in regards to the Swine Flu Pandemic which turns out to be just abut the bottom line of every story out there: “The Money”. And “Money’s” bottom line is: Power & Control.
