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?

A 9th banker was found dead only days ago. What is driving successful bankers with families to kill themselves in droves? https://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. https://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.

Sure ought to consider drug cartel involvement too. All that money needs laundering somewhere.


This writer is a very savvy fellow, and from what I know inside of the financial circles he writes about, he’s spot on the money and the story. You MUST act now to protect yourself from the coming collapse. If you have investments that can be hedged, then you should have done so by now. If you have NOT done so, then get an ETF that covers a market collapse via a broad market index. The one that I and my daughter bought is HSD, for those of you in Canada and the USA where it is traded. It’s dirt… Read more »


Umm, a nail gun? Nope, nothing to see here.

It’s really too bad that this author and many others who seemingly are trying to bring the truth out can be so wrong. Let’s just say there are two types of people in the ‘alternate news’ blogosphere : people with good intent that somehow, just don’t get it, and those that get it alright but spread lies and untruths to serve ‘the powers that be’. Anyone that puts the blame for our continuing worldwide financial predicament on governments is stupid or a troll. The Western banking cartel completely controls all governments within their sphere – the political process everywhere is… Read more »


[…] Wayne Allyn Root on 9 Dead Bankers. […]


Thank you Mike for this important post. As stated in the Gospel today, you cannot serve two masters, God and money. I have a special apostolate for those individuals who have committed suicide and their families, loved ones, friends and individuals associated with them. I will pray for these above-stated people.

Business Insider says it’s highly competitive alpha male bankers, who can’t ask for help, breaking under the stress of high-stress banking jobs. Blah, blah, blah.

Of course, none of this can explain why ANY ONE, even “alpha male bankers,” would kill themselves WITH A NAIL GUN, which was what founder and CEO of American Title Richard Talley did. He allegedly committed suicide by firing 7-8 shots INTO HIS HEAD and torso WITH A NAIL GUN.


Mr. Root did a great job listing every conceivable suspicious “theory” as to why 9 banking men have met their demise. I didn’t buy the nail gun suicide either! Argh! “For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it…” (Ephesians 5:29). I didn’t realize the count was up to 9. Reminds me of the string of “Dead Scientists” from a decade ago: “The Mystery Of The Dead Scientists: Coincidence Or Conspiracy? …At least twelve, and perhaps as many as twenty eminent scientists, leaders in their particular field of scientific research, dead in the last few… Read more »


Bankers are going off the deep end in other ways as well. After reading the other great FOTM story re the “Parrot Detective,” I followed the Times of India link & then saw this headline there:

3/1/14: “Banker surfs net to give daughter painless death, slits her throat …The 50-year-old accused, an assistant manager with Malwa Gramin Bank at Fatehgarh Sahib, even went to work as usual on February 22 after slitting his daughter’s throat…” (she was 18):

Big heavy sigh!

Timothy Maxwell “Max” Keiser, an American broadcaster who has worked with Russia Today and the BBC, said there were reports that “up to 20 bankers have recently been found dead,” but does not think their cases were connected. Keiser suggested, instead, that pressures from ongoing investigations into financial fraud might have played a part. The WSJ report noting the rash of banker deaths also cited serious concerns about worker-related stress, an issue that several major banks such as Credit Suisse Group AG, Bank of America and Merrill Lynch have been reviewing and taking measures to address. Dr. Christine Moutier, of… Read more »


Thanks for posting this story, Mike. I hadn’t paid any attention to it until now. This is terribly suspicious business. The nail gun suicide stops the reader, and demands investigation.

It fits together with the Clinton murders, the suspicious deaths of gay men in Obama’s church, and the inexplicable “about face” in the opinions of powerful businessmen after “friendly meetings” with president Obama.


“Keiser suggested, instead, that pressures from ongoing investigations into financial fraud might have played a part.” >> That’s a good point as well. Even so, many people withstand being caught in crimes. Maybe only the extremely “proud” can’t handle the “shame” it would bring on them, so they decide to kill themselves instead. Suicide seems like a drastic measure, though. Also, “…bankers work in a ‘deeply dysfunctional and abusive system’…” Yes, totally dysfunctional when banks/bankers can “create money by loaning money.” That’s how I heard a former banker (& former TN state rep in the 1970’s, & author, & radio… Read more »
