I have a "rule": One doesn't matter; two is a coincidence at worst or a synchronicity at best; and three is a pattern. Well, I might be violating my rule today because of an unusual circumstance, or synchronicity, or potential pattern. Perhaps this should be left in the "you tell me" category than in the "call it conspiracy" category.
Regular readers here know that one of the stories that I've tried to track over the years is the story regarding "strange doctor deaths," particular of physicians that are either "alternative medicine" promoters, or that challenge vaccination studies, or correlate autism and vaccination, and so on. Well, what happens when one of those "homeopathic" doctors just happens to be the physician to the Queen of England? On its own, it should at least send the suspicion meter into the orange zone, and it did mine (article shared by Mr. S.D. and many others):
The article makes it fairly clear that in the case of the Queen's doctor, there is nothing overtly suspicious, since he was struck by a truck while cycling to work, and the truck driver was not arrested:
The truck driver for interior building product distribution company CCF remained at the scene, was not arrested and was helping police with their investigation, according to the report.
Ok, nothing to see, but the doctor was apparently an expert in standard medicine and homeopathy, so one can, perhaps, add him to the growing list of homeopathic doctors who have died under potentially, and in some cases obviously, suspicious circumstances in recent years:
Dr. Peter Fisher, 67, was on his way to the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine — where he is president of the Faculty of Homeopathy — when the fatal smash-up occurred in High Holborn on Wednesday morning, the Evening Standard reported.
Good Samaritans rushed to give him CPR, but he was pronounced dead at the scene before 10 a.m.
He had served as the Queen’s homeopathic doctor for about 15 years, according to the report. She has been informed of his death, the BBC reported.
What is also intriguing is that this article links to the story of the murder of G.H.W. Bush's doctor, as he was cycling to work approximately a month earlier:
Now, what's intriguing here is that not only have we heard little more about the driver of that truck in the case of the Queen's doctor, we've heard very little more about the death of President GHW Bush's doctor, except that the suspect in the case, Joseph James Pappas, committed suicide:
In the latter case, we have this summary:
Acevedo said the department received tips identifying Pappas as the gunman after authorities released new surveillance video Monday of the suspect riding his own bicycle through a neighborhood moments after the shooting. The footage showed a man wearing a ball cap, a short-sleeved polo shirt and khaki shorts.
Investigators said the shooter passed Hausknecht from behind and rode at least a block ahead before turning around and firing three shots at his victim.
"There was a lot of planning that went into this," Acevedo said of the murder. "There was a lot of planning and, sadly, some skill ... The shots that he took, took some skill."
Now, there are, as far as I can tell, two basic ways of interpreting this: (1) the deaths of these doctors-to-the-rich-and-powerful is merely coincidental, and there is nothing suspicious in either case, when they are considered independently; (2) the deaths are related and not coincidental.
For the sake of some high octane speculation, assuming number (2) to be true for a moment, then there are two more basic possibilities: (a) either "they" are cleaning house, and getting rid of people who might have "heard" or otherwise known something, or (b) messages are being sent to the principals from someone else via associates' deaths, a kind of "Mafia wars" scenario.
For my own part, yes, I definitely incline to view number (2), and within that, to possibility (b), since it represents a teeny tiny, teensy weensy problem...
See you on the flip side...
