MORE BANKER DEATHS: GILLIGAN AT AMERICAN EXPRESS, NOYCE AT GOLDMAN ...

I cannot help but be suspicious any more on all the bankers and financiers dying, even if they do so due to "natural causes." Case in point here are the deaths, within this last week, of the President of American Express, and a key analyst for Goldman Sachs. Here are the stories:

Markets More: American Express Death American Express president Ed Gilligan has died

John Noyce, ‘Must Read’ Goldman Currency Analyst, Dies at 36

Now, so far, everything seems normal: Mr. Noyce had apparently been battling with cancer for some time, and Mr. Gilligan simply become "suddenly ill" on an airplane flight and expired. But again, these two unfortunate men appear to be part of that "pattern" that seems to be emerging with all the banker deaths. Here's the way Mr. Gilligan's death is being reported by Bloomberg:

He became seriously ill on a flight home to New York this morning, the statement said.

"This is deeply painful and frankly unimaginable for all of us who had the great fortune to work with Ed, and benefit from his insights, leadership and enthusiasm," CEO Ken Chenault said in the letter to employees.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Lisa, and their four children – Katie, Meaghan, Kevin and Shane. He was a proud husband and father, and his love for his family was evident in all that he did."

And then in American Express's own release:
His contributions have left an indelible imprint on practically every area of our business, from Commercial Card and Travel to International, Consumer, Small Business, Merchant Services, Network Services and, most recently, the group forging our digital partnerships and driving payment innovations. (Emphases added)
So where's the familiar pattern? Well, in Mr. Gilligan's case, it is (1) in his popularity with employees, colleagues, and family, a feature that seems to recur with each such death; and (2) he was involved in aspects of the financial sector having directly to do with computers, electronic payments and clearing, and, in his case, "forging digital partnerships", and driving "payment innovaitons," language that at least to this amateur's instincts sound all too like the formation of financial data cartels and trusts.
Then there is this about the unfortunate Mr. Noyce at Goldman Sachs:

"John Noyce, a technical analyst at Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s London currency trading desk whose weekly report “The Charts That Matter Next Week” was widely followed, has died. He was 36.

He died on June 4 after a long battle with cancer, Goldman Sachs wrote in an internal memo signed by Isabelle Ealet, Pablo Salame and Ashok Varadhan, co-heads of its securities unit.

“He was well respected by market participants for his insightful analysis,” they wrote. “On the trading floor, he was a trusted colleague and friend -- demonstrated clearly by the overwhelming support he received from GS colleagues throughout his illness.”

And toward the end of the article, this tidbit is offered:

Noyce left Citigroup for New York-based Goldman Sachs in 2008, according to his employment history on the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority website. He joined Goldman Sachs as a vice president for European fixed income, currencies and commodities strategies, according to the company memo. (Emphasis added)

Again, one has the familiar pattern of (1) respected and liked by fellow colleagues and professionals, and (2) involvement in the sector of the business having to do with computers and electronic trading, and notably, in this case, with currencies and commodities strategies.

All we are told about the unfortunate Mr. Noyce is that he had been battling cancer "for a long time." We are told nothing about whatever illness Mr. Gilligan apparently died from, nor is there even any indication that an autopsy will be, or has been performed. But it's the consistency of the pattern that has emerged that disturbs, and the connections to those aspects of the financial sector that would put these men into the position of possibly being able to see, or observe, the signatures of untoward financial activity, including indicators of a hidden system interfaced with the public system of finance. At a certain point, financiers taking walks off of skyscraper rooftops, or out of ten story windows in Paris, or walking in front of a train, or drowning in lakes, or being shot as they're getting into their car, or dying in midair of "illnesses", or expiring from cancer, or murdered while taking a jog on a well-known public park... at a certain point, one must acknowledge that the likelihood of all of this just being "coincidence" isn't very high.  And then the real question becomes, which is no one within the mainstream lamestream media, or the alternative media, investigating it?

For my two cents' worth, I have suspected all along, and suspect now, that these individuals are being "suicided" because they have either uncovered something significant about the world financial system, something that few people in the public sector suspect, or they are being "suicided" as "precautionary" measures to protect some secret they themselves may not have understood fully that they knew.

See you onthe flip side...

(My thanks to the many of you who sent both stories!)

  1. You never hear”everyone thought this guy was a jerk and his wife’s glad she’s got his life insurance” in an obituary,especially if the person held a high ranking job position. What he was is indicative by whom he worked for. Many small countries are still reeling from the impact of the mortgage based bond and securities swindle,many normal citizens are being driven to suicide or have lost access to health care for life threatening illnesses. This is murder by the hundreds of thousands,not to mention the marriages ruined and educational opportunities lost do to financial disaster for the millions affected. And this was money that these citizens saved with pension and social services pakkets they paid into for decades,sometimes a working lifetime that these financiers have stolen. Too bad these people are being suicided before they can confess to what they know,maybe its time for enhanced interrogation techniques to be used by the citizenry to get to the truth of the matter,obviously the law enforcement and judicial branches of the gov’t are involved in the lack of investigation that is occurring in these murder/suicides of the banking and financial industry. Hey just kidding,Hendriks was right “life is but a joke”

    Exchange of coins has been on the rise over the past many years. It has seen many people getting into it. Many do this as a way of preserving value while others do it basically to earn profit. Those who do it for profit making do it on a full time basis. It can either take place online or at shops. Those operating the business should meanwhile be approved to do it. Coin shop San Antonio TX is such an entity that helps people fulfill their exchange desires. The following are some of the benefits associated with this kind of transaction…..

  3. That Amex president was 55 years old, but looke 65 in the photos.

    He had plenty of indicators for a coming heart attack.

  4. As CEOs go, Gilligan appears to have been quite human and well-liked, not at all the usual sociopath if one takes the obituaries at face value. A family man with four children, knew everyone’s name and always had a good word to say. The sudden death on the private jet though does make me think of Nelson Rockefeller; I doubt he was whacked and the silence may simply be to protect the “family man” image.

  5. This is just astounding news, is this “wacking” of bankers ever going to stop?
    Seems to me that as long as there is this “hidden system of finance”, there is going to be bankers ending up in the mortuary. Just goes to show “WHO” is running this world of ours, and it isn’t the politicians.

  6. The Amex CEO was from New York University, and here is a tidbit from Wikipedia: “Some of the first fraternities in the country were formed at NYU. Greek life first formed on the NYU campus in 1837 when Psi Upsilon chartered its Delta Chapter. The first fraternities at NYU were social ones. With their athletic, professional, intellectual, and service activities, later groups sought to attract students who also formed other groups. Since then, Greek letter organizations have proliferated to include 25 social fraternities and sororities. As of 2014, approximately 13% of NYU students are members of fraternities or sororities.”
    With the proviso that while these connections can explain how people reach important positions, they do not necessarily explain how they “lose” them.

    It looks like creative accounting and cooking the books skills can cut short your life. Even a accountant for the Mob job wouldn’t be this dangerous. They must believe that persons with these skills are a dime a dozen to be wiping out so regularly. Or are the PTB so paranoid that they think as you say they know too much or maybe able to with their knowledge connect the dots and must be retied quickly so they don’t spill the beans in the future.

  8. The chip is in! How can the general public and anyone working in a similar finance position not notice this streak of carnage? Which I call SVD (Sudden and or Violent Death).. It’s like they are shooting buffalo. The herd isn’t disturbed by the ones that are going down.

    I got a response to a resume that was 10 yrs old. JPM wanted to hire me. I told the recruiter I’d been out of IT for a decade and that I wouldn’t work for JPM or Goldman on a bet. He roared with laughter. I can’t be the only one that realizes working for the Borg is not a good idea! The real question is the why they are killing people? And what is the body count now? 60+?

    1. Are there any common factors among them — politics religion etc? Like the purge of microbiologists and the Knight of The Long Knives, this too is beginning to smack of a purge.

  9. PS: Non-disclosure contracts with onerous punitive provisions for a violation of their terms, would be enough to seal most lips. Seems like a fairly large, expertly coordinated clandestine operation. As JFK stated in his attempt to war the American people… “They have accumulated and control vast human and material resources.”

    Paul Winkler, in his book The Thousand Year Conspiracy, writes about the activities and considerable numbers of murders (hundreds) during the Weimar era (1918-1933), which Winkler attributes to members of the “Holy” Vehme. Official “News” Agencies, treated these deaths as Germany’s internal affairs. Germany’s assimilated Jewish economics minister, Kurt Eisner, was one of their more prominent victims. The secretive Vehm functioned along inquisitorial lines.

    So, another question is, has the “Holy Vehm,” which has its roots in Rome, been transplanted and resurrected within America? Now here, along with a more comprehensive account of The Knights of The Golden Circle, that closely resembled the activities of Ernst Roehm’s Nazi Brown Shirted Storm Troopers, is a book or two.

  10. As has long been the case, today’s “News” is selectively edited and read, not studiously reported. These are not your classic investigative journalists and reporters. These are stage news “casters,” as in a casting of spells and hexes. The real question is, WHO constructs and manages the narrative? Beneath a glossy veneer of surreal normality, seems like it would require a sizable team of trained, surreptitiously controlled operatives, to stage and pull off things like Sandy Hook (a hiring of “crisis actors”), Oklahoma and 9/11, not to mention JFK.

      1. As regards media… Do you have any views on Alex Jones’ Prison Planet operation? He seems to step on some pretty nasty toes, but also treads lightly on some of the more important ones. A consummate intellectual truck driver.

          Let’s assume that there are people who use other people. Ideally they’d like absolute control[that maybe in another realm altogether outside “our” control]. Shy of that they “place” people of a certain[word purposed here] ideology. For instance, in today’s world a religion might be neoliberal, or “left”, or “right”. That’s a broad brushstroke to charcoal a backdrop of semi-control. Especially if information is leaked/framed to said individuals.
          All this to say I believe he is a tool being used. He might even suspect on some level, but figures he’s his own man. The above is one possibility.
          Another was he was put in-place; then later blackmailed.
          This lists go on; but the point being is that when you get a large platform, the odds are your being controlled in some known or unknown fashion.

          So, yea…
          I think he’s a puppet on a string(s).
          Personally I don’t like him, but I do like his info. And remember,[I know I don’t have to tell you this elm], All Info IS Suspect.

    Apparently there is some weakness in the system where those with knowledge AND access can interface. Or have the ability to “team-up” AND interface/interact within this system AND perhaps:

      Granted…
      it takes a lot of ducks in-a-row…

      But…

      it has turned into an unexplainable shooting gallery.

  12. Probably all these people were all very well liked by their colleagues, but to keep mentioning it every time appears more like a statement of ‘nothing to see here, move along, we had nothing to do with it’. And to see this happening at multiple banks makes me wonder what is the connection between these banks on a deep level, more than the computer and electronics aspects, though that certainly is the first clue. If it is so deep that that its tentacles reach into Russia, for example, does this connect in any way to all the dissidents there who are finding the same fate, including getting violently ill on plane flights.
