If the German state of Hessen comes knocking on your door and asking you to become the state's finance minister, you might want to think twice, because it seems that the state is experiencing an unusually high rate of Arkancides - or perhaps we should say, Hessencides - lately, as the following article (unfortunately only in German), shared by B.F., indicates that another official - as yet unnamed - in the state's finance ministry is dead:

Zweiter Suizid im hessischen Finanzministerium (Second Suicide in Hessian Finance Ministry)

You might recall that approximately three weeks ago, the then-Finance Minister of the state, or we should say, state secretary of finance, Thomas Schaefer, committed "suicide" by catching a high speed passenger train,  shortly after Germany's state-owned bank Kreditanstalt fur Wiederaufbau, the "reconstruction" bank established after World War Two to aid in the reconstruction of the country, announced it was going to extend massive credit to German companies affected by the coronavirus plandemic. When queried a little further on the matter, the bank made it clear that it could extend virtually unlimited credit, which sort of reminds one of the US Federal Reserve taking reserve requirements to zero, and for that matter, Harvard taking its finances completely black, while its chemistry chairman, Dr. Charles Lieber was around the same time being arrested for allegedly not revealing his relationship to the Wuhan laboratory to the federal government.

Gee... I wonder if there's a relationship?

Anyway, as I noted in my blog about Schaeffer's alleged suicide, I found the Kreditanstalt's announcement rather amazing, for being a state-owned bank by the German federal government, I thought - and still think - that it was mightily peculiar that the bank, and therefore the German government, had completely by-passed the Bundesbank, and the European Central Bank. In other words, it by-passed the "European" institutions altogether, a signal, perhaps, of the rickety shape the EU is in, notwithstanding the rosy and always-out-of-touch views of Mr. Verhofstadt peering through his glasses of wine.

As the article relates, another colleague in the state's finance office was found last Thursday "lifeless in his office," which police have already ruled a suicide, and the current state finance secretary, Martin Worms, expects a suicide ruling, while calling it "another shocking stroke of fate."

Uh huh.

Just  a coincidence.

Nothing to see here, move along.

Now, indeed, Schaefer, and now this unnamed man or woman, are dead of suicides within three weeks, both working in Hessen's finance ministry, the largest city of which is Frankfurt, continental Europe's financial hub, and home of course to such stellar and reputable corporations as Deutsche Bank, the European Central Bank, the Bundesbank, and at one time I.G. Farben, and so on. Perhaps Schaeffer and this unnamed person did commit suicide, or perhaps they did not, but either way, my suspicion meter is in the read zone, for they probably knew something that either alarmed or frightened them, or got them killed. One thing that has my suspicion meter in the red zone is the lack of details in the story, some of which is perfectly understandable as family members may need to be notified, and so on. But there's a dearth of information on why the police and Martin Worms are saying suicide; there's no mention of a note, nor of how this individual took his or her life. We simply don't know.

That's a round-about way to say that there's probably much more to this story, and that more will seep out over time.

See you on the flip side...
