Wayne Allyn Root on 9 Dead Bankers

Wayne Allyn Root 

By Wayne Allyn Root

Something very big and very bad is happening. Prominent bankers are dying in droves. Have you ever heard of 8 bankers committing suicide in a matter of just a few weeks?

http://intellihub.com/8th-international-banker-die-month-jumps-building-china/

A 9th banker was found dead only days ago. What is driving successful bankers with families to kill themselves in droves? http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-02-24/another-successful-banker-found-dead

Here’s the tipoff that this is a very big story: the mainstream media is not covering it. There’s 9 dead bankers (and counting) and the story isn’t even mentioned in the national news? That itself is a major news story.

Bankers are dying so fast, you’d think they were all dentists. You get the joke, right? Dentists have the highest suicide rate of any profession. Sometimes you need a little humor to brighten up a very dark story. But keep in mind at no time in history have 9 dentists all died under mysterious circumstances in a matter of a few weeks.

Why are so many bankers dying? Is the media asleep at the switch? Afraid to dig deeper? Ordered not to investigate? By whom? The government? Or is the media perhaps afraid for their own lives if they dig deeper? You think that sounds a bit absurd? Well not really. A Wall Street Journal reporter named David Bird, who covers the commodities market, is missing. As in gone. As in never seen again. He left his home on Jan 11th and never returned. Was he working on this story?

Something smells rotten in Denmark. Because 9 dead bankers and a missing reporter should be a huge headline story.

And if anyone has been watching closely- 5 other major bankers died in either suicides or mysterious circumstances in 2013. That’s 14 dead bankers.

Someone is going to win a major journalist prize for investigating a high-profile story like this. But for some mysterious reason, no one in the mainstream media seems interested. Doesn’t that alone make you nervous?

This story is real. The dead are:
William Broeksmit, 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG.
Karl Slym, 51 year old Tata Motors managing director.
Gabriel Magee, 39-year-old JP Morgan banker.
Mike Dueker, 50-year-old chief economist of a US investment bank, and former Vice President of the St. Louis Federal Reserve.
Richard Talley, the 57-year-old founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado.
Tim Dickenson, U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG.
Ryan Henry Crane, 37-year-old executive at JP Morgan.
Dennis Li Junjie, 33-year-old Hong Kong banker.
James Stewart Jr., former CEO of the National Bank of Commerce.

James Stewart? You know something very bad is going on when a bank CEO named Jimmy Stewart is found dead. I guess it’s not such “a wonderful life” afterall.

How they died is strange and mysterious too. Two of these successful bankers jumped off the roof of their high-rise office buildings. Just like that bankers decide to take a stroll off the top of their office buildings? One of the bankers was ruled a “suicide” after being shot 8 times from head to toe with a nail gun. http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2014/02/another-banker-commits-suicide-by-shooting-himself-eight-times-with-a-nail-gun-2893666.html
Am I the only one who finds this creepy and worrisome? Do you know anyone brave or insane enough to commit suicide by nail gun?

So what’s going on? I’ll give you two theories.

My first educated guess is we are headed for an epic economic collapse. The mainstream media has fed the public lies about a non-existent “recovery” and dutifully reported the government’s manipulated economic reports (filled with fraud). But these bankers are smart guys who know the truth. What’s coming is very, very bad. As I argued in my national bestseller “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide” we are entering the Greatest Depression of all-time.

What caused this economic Armageddon? Spending, entitlements and debt. Who caused it? Government, led by corrupt, ignorant and reckless politicians. If I were the lead detective on this case, I’d be investigating who had the most to gain from a cover-up. My investigation would start and end with government collusion, corruption, bailouts and bribery.

Governments all over the world have taxed, spent and printed us into oblivion. America’s debt crisis will make Greece look like a walk in the park. This is too big to “paper over.” When America collapses, the entire rest of the world crumbles with us. Even creative and corrupt government bureaucrats making up fraudulent economic statistics can’t cover this one up. There is no way out from the coming crash. I’m guessing that knowledge might cause a banker who sees the writing on the wall to take a walk off the roof of his high-rise.

But that still doesn’t explain shooting yourself with a nail gun 8 times from head to toe. No one wants to die that slowly and painfully. That sounds more like torture to me. And torture is what leads to murder. Perhaps some or all of these bankers were murdered. Perhaps they didn’t walk off their high-rise buildings. Perhaps they were pushed.

Perhaps the Colorado bank CEO was being “questioned” when the nail gun went off…8 times. I guess the interrogators didn’t like his answers.

But why would someone murder bankers? My educated guess is these are smart guys who knew too much. Perhaps they knew about government manipulation and fraud. Perhaps they knew their banks were not in the wonderful shape their manipulated balance sheets showed. Perhaps they had information about government collusion and corruption in the banking system. Perhaps they were threatening to expose government’s lies and fraud. Perhaps they knew about the trillions in derivatives held by banks and Wall Street firms about to implode and take world economy with it.

I’m just making educated guesses. But something is very wrong. Something bad is coming. 9 dead bankers is a very messy start, of a very big story the mainstream media doesn’t want you to know about.

Big Pharma made $711 bln overcharging seniors and disabled

The 11 largest drug companies have made $711 billion in profits in just a decade, largely due to overcharging Medicare, which does not seek out competitive prices and uses taxpayer funds to support Big Pharma.

Since Medicare is prohibited from purchasing drugs based on their cost, its prescription drug program has been making large payouts to drug companies that have overcharged the program for years, according to an analysis by Health Care for America Now (HCAN).

“There is nothing wrong with a company making profits – that’s what their supposed to do. But the drug industry’s profits are excessive as a result of overcharging American consumers and taxpayers,” writes Ethan Rome, executive director of HCAN, for the Huffington Post. “We pay significantly more than any other country for the exact same drugs.”

Rome notes that per capita drug spending in the US is 40 percent higher than in Canada, 75 percent greater than in Japan, and nearly 300 percent greater than Denmark.

The 11 largest global prescription drug companies have skyrocketed since the Medicare Part D prescription drug program was launched in 2006. The government health program enables seniors and the disabled to buy taxpayer-subsidized coverage for many of the most widely disseminated medicines. But Medicare is prohibited from negotiating prices with pharmaceutical companies or seeking out more cost-effective drugs, thereby costing seniors, the disabled and American taxpayers billions of dollars more than some argue the drugs are worth.

Some lawmakers have recently urged Congress to consider changing the law, for the sake of cutting unnecessarily high costs. Wisconsin Democratic State Senator Jon Erpenbach told Wisconsin Public Radio that his state could save $1.2 billion over ten years if Congress were to allow Medicare to partake in prescription drug negotiations.

“I understand that pharmaceutical companies are for-profit companies,” he told the station last week. “I understand there’s a lot of research and development that goes into the products that they produce. All of that being said, it shouldn’t cost us more to get that kind of pharmaceuticals we need to have.”

But according to the HCAN analysis, Big Pharma spends very little on research and development. Even though pharmaceuticals cite research as a costly part of its operations, the money spent on this is exaggerated, Rome claims. Drug companies spend 19 times more on marketing than on research and development – another reason why the industry reaps so much in profits each year, he adds.

US President Barack Obama has long promised to repeal the prohibition on Medicare negotiations with drug companies, but has so far failed to do so. The Veterans Administration currently negotiates drug prices, and manufacturers argue that letting Medicare take over the negotiations would make no difference to the industry. Supporters of drug manufacturers also continue to emphasize the high costs of research and development.

But the Congressional Budget Office found that if Medicare were to receive the same bulk-purchasing discounts on prescription drugs that state Medicaid programs receive, the federal government would cut its spending by $137 billion over 10 years.

“Our politicians give all kinds of tax breaks and subsidies to big corporations that don’t need them: Big Oil. Wall Street. Companies that ship our jobs overseas,” Rome writes. “Every gift to a special interest, including allowing Big Pharma to overcharge Medicare, is an expenditure of scarce tax dollars. That’s called wasteful spending.”

Land of the Free or Police State?

In Illinois, and probably other states as well, it’s a Class A felony for a private citizen or bystander to tape record or video a law enforcement official without consent.  Police officers are not held to the same law and routinely record conversations.

Retired Sheriff Incarcerated in Jail Named After Him

Via news.yahoo.com:

Former “sheriff of the year” arrested and sent to jail named after him

Every civil servant wants to experience his or her legacy firsthand–but not the way that onetime Arapahoe Sheriff Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. has. Sullivan, a nationally renowned law enforcement leader, was arrested on drug charges and is now being detained in the Denver area jail that bears his name.

Sullivan, who in 2001 was named the National Sheriff Association’s “Sheriff of the Year,” was arrested on suspicion of trafficking methamphetamines.

Local news station CBS4 began an investigation of Sullivan last month on a tip that he had agreed to meet a male informant, providing drugs in exchange for sex. He was subsequently arrested by the South Metro Drug Task Force and is currently being held on a $250,000 bond.

And in an incredible twist of fate, Sullivan now cooling his heels at The Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. Detention Facility, named in his honor.

[...]

As recently as 2008, Sullivan was an active participant in state and local methamphetamine task forces, helping Colorado draft a plan to deal with the surge in meth-related crime.

In 1995 President Bill Clinton named Sullivan to the National Commission on Crime Prevention and Control. According to a 1995 White House news release, Sullivan was a consultant to U.S. House Subcommittee on Crime and served on two advisory councils affiliated with the Department of Justice.

Sandusky Recruiting Players for Penn State This Year?

Monster

Via chicago.cbslocal.com:

(WSCR) According to a published report, former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who was arrested over the weekend on more than 40 counts of child sexual abuse, had been recruiting for Penn State football as recently as this past spring.

Adam Ah Ching, a senior linebacker at Greer High School in South Carolina, said that Sandusky actually visited him this past season as a recruiting ploy.

“He came to my last spring game going into my senior season. He liked how I moved, laterally, and how gifted I am,” said Ah Ching, ranked last year by ESPNU as the 26th linebacker prospect in the country.

Since the allegations surfaced, however, Ah Ching has changed his mind about Penn State.

“It’s very devastating to have a top-tiered program and have them drop like that,” said Ah Ching. “That really did play a big impact on where I wanted to go.

“All these recruits are decommiting because of that. It’s sad, depressing and devastating.”

-End

If this story is true, I think the NCAA should immediately step in and shut down Penn State’s football program completely, and keep it shut down for at least five years.

Maybe even longer.

Barney Frank Supports the Commie “Protesters” While Seeking Wall Street Cash

The New Three Stooges

Yes, you read that right, and no, you have not accidentally swerved into the Onion.

Bawney Fwank, who I have posted about previously concerning his culpability when it comes to the financial and economic meltdown that this entire planet is now facing, actually supports those who, if they were even remotely bright enough, would be trampling the petunias into mush on his own front lawn.

Via politico.com:

Rep. Barney Frank might sympathize with the Occupy Wall Street protesters, but he’s still got friends in the financial world.

The Massachusetts Democrat is heading to New York hoping to raise tens of thousands of dollars Thursday at a fundraiser at the home of Charles Myers, a senior investment banking advisor at Evercore Partners. Myers is one of several Wall Street execs listed on the invite soliciting up to $2,500 from attendees for Frank’s reelection committee, according to a copy obtained by POLITICO.

Frank, the co-author of the sweeping financial regulatory reform bill signed into law last year, said in a recent interview with POLITICO that he didn’t see any conflict between supporting the protests and taking financial services money.

“If you take money from them, but you don’t vote [for] the things they want, how does that put you in conflict?” Frank questioned.

Frank said he supports the movement “to the extent that they obey the law” and that he wishes “that kind of energy was around two years ago when we were voting on the financial reform bill. We’d have a tougher bill.”

Frank spokesman Harry Gural said the event isn’t exclusively a Wall Street fundraiser, and will include members of the gay and lesbian community and others.

You will find the rest of the article at this link.

Justice is going to find this cretin one day – if not in this life, then most certainly the next.

When that day comes, I am going to be soooooooo glad that my name is not Barney Frank.

Home Invader Finds Justice

Yep, nothing like a good DRT* story to get the weekend started off right.

Via fox10tv.com:

Pensacola, Fla. (WALA) – POLICE: MAN INVADES HOME WITH BOW AND ARROW

Police say Auxiliary Florida State Trooper Tabbatha Nussbaumer turned the tables on a robber armed with a bow and arrow during a home invasion in Pensacola.

“Absolutely shocked. I’ve known Sean since high school. We went to high school together, he was a great guy, he never got mixed up in anything bad,” said Ben Calloway

Calloway is responding to what happened on the evening of October 10. Pensacola police said auxiliary Florida State Trooper Tabbatha Nussbaumer was upstairs in her home taking a shower, when her young son told her there was a man in the house.

Nussbaumer confronted the man that police have identified as 24-year-old Sean Harris. Police said Harris was armed with a bow and arrow and demanding money. Nussbaumer told the suspect money was in her truck. As the suspect followed Nussbaumer outside, police say he removed his clothes.

According to police, when Nussbaumer reached her truck she removed a gun, turned around, and shot Harris in the stomach.

When police arrived Harris was lying naked, face down on the road. He was taken to Sacred Heart Hospital where he later died.

___________________________

I think Tabbatha should be up for a community service award for ridding hers of a menace that very well could have killed an innocent person somewhere down the road.

Busting Posse Comitatus: Military Cops Arrest Civilians in Florida CiKurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
July 28, 2011

In Homestead, Florida, Posse Comitatus is dead. The Air Force now responds to civilian crime in the small city, population around 30,000.

“Here at Homestead Air Reserve Base we have the Crime Stop hotline that allows anyone either on base or off the installation to anonymously report a crime,” explains the Homestead Air Reserve Base website. “If you know of a crime that has been committed, if you see a crime in progress, or if you see a suspicious person, vehicle, or situation that makes you feel a crime may be occurring, call the Security Forces Crime Stop Hotline…”

On July 15, military police – known as Security Forces patrolmen – detained a criminal suspect at a Circle K in until Miami-Dade police arrived.

“Crime prevention is everyone’s responsibility, the better informed we are the safer we can make the installation and the surrounding community,” said t. Juan Lemus, Security Forces Police Services Chief.

Crime prevention off military bases is the responsibility of civilian police, not the military. In 1878, following Reconstruction, the Posse Comitatus Act was passed. It limited the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement. The statute prohibits Army and Air Force personnel and units of the National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress.

California Ordered to Cut Prisoner Population

"Cruel and unusual punishment"

Justices, 5-4, Tell California to Cut Prisoner Population

The New York Times reported today on the U.S. Supreme Court‘s decision to order the State of California to cut its prisoner population.  Apparently the conditions in the overcrowded prisons are so bad they violate the Eighth Amendment’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment.  The Court ordered the state to reduce its prison population by more than 30,000 inmates.

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, writing for the majority in a 5-to-4 decision that broke along ideological lines, described a prison system that failed to deliver minimal care to prisoners with serious medical and mental health problems and produced “needless suffering and death.” Shocker: The court’s more liberal members — Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen G. Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan — joined Justice Kennedy’s opinion.

Justices Antonin Scalia and Samuel A. Alito Jr. filed vigorous dissents. Justice Scalia called the order affirmed by the majority “perhaps the most radical injunction issued by a court in our nation’s history.” Justice Alito said “the majority is gambling with the safety of the people of California.”

The picture above was part of the majority opinion that showed “cruel and unusual punishment”. The order requires state officials to reduce the prison population to 110,000, which is 137.5 percent of the system’s capacity. There have been more than 160,000 inmates in the system in recent years, and there are now more than 140,000.

The ruling did not dictate how California should comply with the order — whether it should release inmates, transfer them out-of-state to for-profit prisons, change its parole rules, or take other actions.

Given the fact that the State of California is broke, you may be seeing a lot of these inmates released.  I’d rather these inmates remained locked up in their “horrific” conditions than be released to do more harm to citizens. Just another reason for me not to go to California (Sorry Eowyn!).
