By Douglas J. Hagmann

15 February 2014: I feel that this is one of the most important investigations I’ve ever done. If my findings are correct, each of us might soon experience a severe, if not crippling blow to our personal finances, the confiscation of any wealth some of us have been able to accumulate over our lifetimes, and the end of the financial world as we once knew it.  The evidence to support my findings exists in the trail of dead bodies of financial executives across the globe and a missing Wall Street Journal Reporter who was working at the Dow Jones news room at the time of his disappearance.

If the bodies were dots on a piece of paper, connecting them results in a sinister picture being drawn that involves global criminal activity in the financial world the likes of which is almost without precedent.  It should serve as a warning that we are at the precipice of something so big, it will shake the financial world as we know it to its core. It seems to illustrate the complicity of big banks and governments, the intelligence community, and the media.

Although the trail of mysterious and bizarre deaths detailed below begin in late January, 2014, there are others. Not only that, there will be more, according to sources within the financial world. Based on my findings, these are not mere random, tragic cases of suicide, but of the methodical silencing of individuals who had the ability to expose financial fraud at the highest levels, and the complicity of certain governmental agencies and individuals who are engaged in the greatest theft of wealth the world has ever seen.

It is often said that life imitates art. In the case of the dead financial executives, perhaps death imitates theater, or more specifically, the movie The International, which was coincidentally released in U.S. theaters exactly five years ago today.

We are told by the media that the untimely deaths of these young men and men in their prime are either suicides or tragic accidents. We are told what to believe by the captured and controlled media, regardless of how unusual or unlikely the circumstances, or how implausible the explanation. Such are the hallmarks of high level criminality and the involvement of a certain U.S. intelligence agency intent on keeping the lid on money laundering on a global scale.

Obviously, it is important that this topic is approached with the utmost respect for the families of those who died, that they be allowed to grieve for the loss of their loved ones in private. However, it is extremely important that the truth about what is happening in the global financial arena is not kept from us, as we will also be victims of a different nature.

The missing and the dead: a timeline

The following is provided as a chronological list of those who have gone missing or been found dead under mysterious circumstances. It is important to note that this list consists of names of the most recent incidents. There are more that extend back through 2012 and beyond.

January 11, 2014

MISSING: David Bird, 55, long-time reporter for the Wall Street Journal working at the Dow Jones news room, went for a walk on Saturday, January 11, 2014 near his New Jersey home and disappeared without a trace. Mr. Bird was a reporter of the oil and commodity markets which happened to be under investigation by the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations for price manipulation.

January 26, 2014

DECEASED: Tim Dickenson, a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG, was reportedly found dead under undisclosed circumstances.

DECEASED: William Broeksmit, 58, former senior manager for Deutsche Bank, was found hanging in his home from an apparent suicide. It is important to note that Deutsche Bank is under investigation for reportedly hiding $12 billion in losses during the financial crisis and for potentially rigging the foreign exchange markets. The allegations are similar to the claims the institution settled in 2013 over involvement in rigging the Libor interest rates.

January 27, 2014

DECEASED:  Karl Slym, 51, Managing director of Tata Motors was found dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok. Police said he “could” have committed suicide. He was staying on the 22nd floor with his wife, and was attending a board meeting in the Thai capital.

January 28, 2014

DECEASED:  Gabriel Magee, 39, a JP Morgan employee, died after reportedly “falling” from the roof of its European headquarters in London in the Canary Wharf area. Magee was vice president at JPMorgan Chase & Co’s (JPM) London headquarters.

Gabriel Magee, a Vice President at JPMorgan in London, plunged to his death from the roof of the 33-story European headquarters of JPMorgan in Canary Wharf. Magee was involved in “Technical architecture oversight for planning, development, and operation of systems for fixed income securities and interest rate derivatives” based on his online Linkedin profile.

It’s important to note that JPMorgan, like  Deutsche Bank, is under investigation for its potential involvement in rigging foreign exchange rates. JPMorgan is also reportedly under investigation by the same U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations for its alleged involvement in rigging the physical commodities markets in the U.S. and London.

Regarding the initial reports of his death, journalist Pam Martens of Wall Street on Parade astutely exposed the controlled, scripted details of the media accounts surrounding Magee’s death in an article written on February 9, 2014. Ms. Martens writes:

“According to numerous sources close to the investigation of Gabriel Magee’s death, almost nothing thus far reported about his death has been accurate. This appears to stem from an initial poorly worded press release issued by the Metropolitan Police in London which may have been a result of bad communications between it and JPMorgan or something more deliberate on someone’s part.” [Emphasis added].

Ms. Martens also notes:

No solid evidence exists currently to suggest that the death was a suicide. In fact, there is a strong piece of evidence pointing in the opposite direction. Magee had emailed his girlfriend, Veronica, on the evening of January 27 to say that he was about to leave the office and would see her shortly. [Emphasis added].

Based on information she developed, it appears likely that Magee did not meet his fate on the morning his body was discovered, but hours earlier. Considering the possibility that Magee might now have died in the manner publicized, Ms. Martens offers speculation, and notes it as such:

If Magee became aware that incriminating emails, instant messages, or video teleconferences were not turned over in their entirety to Senate investigators or Justice Department prosecutors, that might be reason enough for his untimely death.

Looking at the death of Magee in the context of a larger conspiracy, it is difficult not to suspect foul play and media manipulation.

January 29, 2014

DECEASED: Mike Dueker, 50, who had worked for Russell Investment for five years, was found dead close to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State. Dueker was reported missing on January 29, 2014. Police stated that he “could have” jumped over a fence and fallen 15 meters to his death, and are treating the case as a suicide.

Before joining Russell Investments, Dueker was an assistant vice president and research economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis from 1991 to 2008. There he served as an associate editor of the Journal of Business and Economic Statistics and was editor of Monetary Trends, a monthly publication of the St. Louis Federal Reserve.

In November 2013, the New York Times reported that Russell Investments was one of several investment companies that were under subpoena from New York State regulators investigating potential “pay-to-play” schemes involving New York pension funds.

February 3, 2014

DECEASED: Ryan Henry Crane, 37, was the Executive Director in JPMorgan’s Global Equities Group. Of particular relevance is that Crane oversaw all of the trade platforms and had close working ties with the now deceased Gabriel Magee of JPMorgan’s London desk. The ties between Mr. Crane and Mr. Magee are undeniable and outright troublesome. The cause of death has not yet been determined, pending the results of a toxicology report.

February 6, 2014

DECEASED: Richard Talley, 57, was the founder and CEO of American Title, a company he founded in 2001. Talley and his company were under investigation by state insurance regulators at the time of his death. He was found in the garage of his Colorado home by a family member who called authorities. Talley reportedly died from seven or eight “self-inflicted” wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head.

The enormity of the lie

One must look back far enough to understand the enormity of the lie and the criminality of bankers and governments alike. We must understand the legal restraints that were severed during the Clinton years and the congress that changed the rules regarding financial institutions. We must understand that the criminal acts were bold and bipartisan, and were designed to consolidate wealth through the destruction of the middle class. All of this is part of a much larger plan to establish a one world economy by “killing” the U.S. dollar and consequently, eradicating the middle class by a cabal of globalists that existed and continue to exist within all sectors of our government. The results will be crippling to not just the United States, but the entire Western world.

What began decades ago is now becoming more transparent under the Obama regime. Perhaps that’s the transparency Obama promised, for we’ve seen little else in terms of transparency with regard to the man known as Barack Hussein Obama. For those not locked into the captured corporate media, we’re starting to see the truth emerging. The truth is that we’ve been living under a giant Ponzi scheme and we, the American citizens, are the suckers. As illustrated by the list of dead bankers above, however, the power elite need a bit more time before the extent of their criminality is revealed. The need a bit more time to transfer the remaining wealth from middle-class America to their private coffers. Timing is everything, and a magic act only works when all props are in place before the illusion is performed. Only when their timing is right will the slumbering Americans realize the extent of the illusion by which they’ve been entranced, at which time they will be forced into submission to accept a financial reset that will ultimately subjugate them to a global economy. I contend that this is the reason for the recent spate of deaths, for those who met their tragic and untimely end had the ability to expose this nefarious agenda by what they knew or discovered, or what they would reveal under subpoena and the damage they could cause to the globalist financial agenda.

It is an insult to the public intellect that the media so readily pushes the official line that the deaths were all suicides given the unusual circumstances surrounding nearly all of those listed. This itself should be ringing alarm bells with anyone of reasonable sensibilities, or at last those who are paying the slightest bit of attention to the larger picture. The media is either complicit or completely inept. While incompetence is evident in many areas, even the most inept journalist or media company cannot possible deny what exists directly in front of them. They can only withhold the truth.

Connecting the dots

To understand what is taking place, I contacted a financial source who has accurately predicted many events that we are now seeing taking place, including the deaths of certain financial people for an explanation. In fact, he actually predicted that we would see a “clean-up” of individuals who posed a serious threat to certain too-big-to-fail-or-jail banks and “banksters” a full week before the events began to unfold. Truth be told, I initially greeted his prediction with some skepticism, for such things don’t really happen in the real world, or so the obedient and well-managed media tells me.

V, The Guerrilla Economist” as he is known in the alternative media, has provided numerous insider alerts for Steve Quayle‘s website and has appeared as a regular guest on The Hagmann & Hagmann Report. He has an undeniable track record for accuracy, which has earned my respect. However, I thought that he had taken temporary leave of his senses when he twice suggested that there will be some house cleaning done of anyone posing a threat to the agenda of certain banks and the globalist agenda on our broadcasts of November 20, 2013 and again on January 10, 2014. In a separate venue, he described what was about to take place by using the analogy of the movie The International. Several dead bodies and a missing journalist later, that analogy has been proven accurate.

The fact is that we are seeing a clean-up where JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank seems to appear at the epicenter of it all. In January, JPMorgan admitted facilitating the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme by turning its head to his activities.  Despite this admission, the U.S. Department of Justice under Eric Holder declined to send anyone to jail under a deferred prosecution agreement. Yet this is only the proverbial tip of the iceberg.

In March, 2013, the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations released a heavily redacted 307-page report detailing the financial irregularities surrounding the actions of JPMorgan and the deliberate withholding of critical financial information by JPMorgan. Prominent in the mix are the actions of Bruno Iksil, who earned the nickname the “London Whale,” for his “casino bets” of others money that caused billions of dollars in losses. Yet, no cooperation was provided by Dimon’s foot soldiers as they failed to testify or otherwise cooperate with Senate investigators.

Remember the damage control and the deliberate downplaying by Jamie Dimon, who maintained that there was nothing to see here with regard to the “London Whale” criminal activities? What was originally described as a loss of perhaps $2 billion ultimately turned into many more times that, yet the actual numbers are still hidden from the public. Such events occurred under the noses of numerous financial executives who had knowledge that went undisclosed.

As we fast forward to today and the current spate of mysterious deaths, we begin to see that many of those who died existed on the periphery of events in the criminal actions of the financial industry. Moreover, it is reasonable to conclude that they possessed knowledge that if disclosed, could have interrupted the magic act taking place for the awestruck audience, captivated by the carefully crafted words of Yellen, her predecessors and the operatives within government who’s duty it is to regulate whatever is left of our current financial system.

That regulation is now a thing of the past. What we have today is a system of facilitation and co-operation between the largest corporations and financial institutions and the U.S. and our intelligence agencies. We now have the “too-big-to-fails” operating with impunity as a result of an incestuous, if not outright unconstitutional relationship where the banks are acting as operational assets for the CIA, the NYPD, and other intelligence and police agencies.

The JPMorgan-CIA-NYPD connection

Perhaps one of the best kept secrets, at least from the majority of the American public, is the integration and overlap between the “too-big-to-fail-and-jail” banks and the most advanced system of surveillance in the U.S. Would it surprise you to learn that the very banks that brought the United States to the brink of financial collapse in 2008, who looted the American public and continue to engage in what most perceive as criminal behavior in the financial venue not only have ties to the CIA, but are actually partnered with the CIA and NYPD surveillance of all of lower Manhattan? That’s right, the big banks such as JPMorgan, Citigroup and others have their own desks and surveillance monitors at a facility known as the Lower Manhattan Security Coordination Center, located at 55 Broadway, deep in the center of New York’s financial district.

The big banks—the very banks that have been the focus of fraud and corruption investigations have their own system of cameras, more than 2,000 in number, and operate them in tandem with NYPD surveillance cameras at a center that was funded with taxpayer money. Every square inch of lower Manhattan is under surveillance 24/7, not just by NYPD, but by JP Morgan and other members of the so-called “one percent.” Carefully consider the implications of this pact.

JPMorgan Chase and others have had long and quite intimate ties with the CIA. Today, however, the line between the banks that control our financial present and future and police and intelligence agencies no longer exist. This relationship of mutual benefit permits the CIA to use the financial institutions to “handle the money” for their various global initiatives, while it provides the banks a stable of “professional assistants” to handle their “security,” whether such security issues arise in the U.S., London, or elsewhere. Highly trained and skilled CIA operatives now work within the system of interlocked financial institutions that have been at the epicenter of the most egregious crimes involving the theft from our bank accounts and retirement savings.

Please stop and consider this for a moment. The very banks and their top executives who have not only brought the U.S. to the brink of financial collapse and Martial Law, engaged or facilitated in various criminal actions that resulted in fines (but no jail time) for the perpetrators, are working hand-in-hand with the CIA. Not only that, they are working in tandem with the NYPD at their surveillance centers, watching and videotaping every move made by anyone—including potential whistleblowers within their vast purview. By the way, this is no ordinary surveillance or surveillance cameras. You won’t find these cameras on the shelves of your local spy shop. These cameras can focus on the footnotes of a book you might be reading, or the words written on a piece of paper being held by an unwitting person. They employ facial recognition and other advanced visual and data aggregation capabilities, and the extent of their technological abilities is increasing every day.

Additionally, the data is collected and maintained, and files are created of people and groups who are merely going about their daily lives. Equally important, files are created and maintained of problem children and groups, like the Occupy movement and others who lawfully exercise their constitutional rights to protest the actions of the one-percent. Consider this in the context of the Occupy Wall Street protests. where the protesters were not only under police surveillance, but surveillance by the banks and their corporate officers against whom they were protesting. And it was all done with the approval and assistance of the police, in this case the NYPD, and U.S. intelligence agencies.

Now consider the plight of a whistleblower who wants to expose criminality within the ranks of a too-big-to-fail. The institution who is engaged in purported criminality based on the findings of the whistleblower can observe the whistleblower’s every move. Where they go, who they meet and what they are carrying to such a meeting. They can be tracked to a residence, a business, or even to their psychiatrist’s office, place of ill repute, or the residence of some significant other outside of their marriage, all of which would be invaluable for blackmail.

Perhaps the potential whistleblower is clean and free from anything that might dissuade them from revealing what they know, their case could be turned over to the in-house security of former CIA agents for proper disposition. It makes the movie The Firm look like child’s play by comparison.

This is not some fanciful delusion. There is proof of this that exists. The New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) has documented the increasingly extensive surveillance being conducted in lower Manhattan and throughout the city. They have verified that  not only are our constitutional rights being violated every minute of every day, but the fruits of surveillance by police and corporate entities are shared between the police, the intelligence agencies and private financial institutions, without restraint on the distribution on such findings.

Are you engaged in a protesting against the criminality of the one-percent? Well, they one-percent are watching you, and they are literally seated right next to the police. Are you a journalist following up on possible “bankster” corruption by meeting a potential whistleblower? You better understand that the bankster target of your investigation is watching you, in real-time, with the complete approval and cooperation of the police. As documented by the NYCLU, you are likely now “on file,” and all data compiled is maintained and accessible not just to law enforcement, but to the very target of your investigation—in real time.

Such surveillance and integration between big banks, law enforcement and spy agencies is not just limited to lower Manhattan or even the United States. It is also most prevalent in London and other cities where international banking is conducted.

Real-time surveillance and the close working relationship between the “one-percenters,” police and the intelligence agencies gives the targets of criminal probes the ability to be pro-active when necessary. It’s all being done under the pretext of national security when it would appear that the real objective is to insulate the banksters from potential problems that exposure of their criminal actions might cause.

Oh, and don’t forget that  it is us who are paying for this.

Perhaps we would be well advised to not only consider the capabilities of the surveillance apparatus that exists where the big banks and police are working at adjacent surveillance terminals at 55 Broadway and other locations, but the incestuous working relationship between the banks and the CIA when we read about banker suicides.

Do not expect to see any exclusive report on this in the corporate media, for they, as requested have dutifully maintained their code of silence by not showing pictures of the brass name plates that identify the bankster terminals situated adjacent to the police terminals during photo shoots of this super-secret surveillance complex a few years ago. As detailed by the tenacious and indefatigable Pam Martens, journalist for Wall Street on Parade in this article, the captured media took a pass on revealing the whole truth about what’s really going on at 55 Broadway.

What has been revealed here is merely the tip of the iceberg. The tentacles of the corporate elite, facilitated and empowered by the CIA, the NYPD top brass, and other agencies have now covertly and effectively succeeded in invading everything you do. The fruits of this operation are being used to advance their global financial agenda and silence the opposition.

Knowing this, is it possible that the dead bodies that are increasing in number are the results of this joint surveillance operation? You will not find any answers in the mainstream media. The big banks have chosen to remain silent, even in the face of subpoenas, and have yet to face any legal consequences for their contempt. It’s not, however, merely contempt of congress or pseudo-investigative bodies. It’s their contempt of humanity, of you and me, and the victims that lie dead, leaving their families broken and wanting for the truth.

    • …I heard they were temporary contracts, and that you have to sign a waiver first!
      hey, but if the Bonus is big enough, some people will do anything. I saw a guy eat a cockroach sandwich once for $500, God only knows what people do for a few 100,000 federal reserve prints on the 2nd or third rooms from the penthouse of the proverbial ivory tower.

    • There isn’t a “regular” posting here who hasn’t had the same experience.  That’s why this situation persists today.  There are far too many of these unfortunate souls willing to KEEP there head in the sand.  I’m sure they will be looking the rest of us up when they are in deep doo doo.

    • @n5rks Was is the guy in fear factory? I just listened to Joe Rogan saying that guy had an allergic reaction because cockroaches have the same protein as shellfish, Tropomyosin.

  1. “It makes the movie The Firm look like child’s play by comparison.”
     
    Forget “The Firm“.  Look instead to “Enemy of the State” for a REAL look at what is going on with all this anti-4th-amendment snooping.
     

    • @hayduke
       
      When I first saw Enemy of the State, my first thought was “there goes Hollyweird, blowing things all out of proportion”.  Well, since all the scandals involving the US Just US Dept, the NSA, the IRS, the State Dept, and the White House, it is pretty clear that Enemy of the State did not go NEARLY far enough in describing just what is going on these days.
       

    • So true, so true. 
       
      Getting my new Driver’s License, NO SMILING, NO EXPRESSION
      Basically a “death mask” type of look. I told the clerk, 
      “This is for facial recognition, isn’t it? ISN’T IT!!!” 
      Stony faced silence was the response. With a bit of a frown…

  2. Even though most of the content of this above article is true, there is still no added connection between these deaths that this particular write-up is presenting.
    I suppose the 55 Broadway info is interesting, much like the City of London Police and their past history of simply being servants of the Finance Capital Dragon that dwells in the Square Mile … look up “Calvi ‘suicide’ Blackfriars Bridge, Vatican Bank” … but was there supposed to be a connection between Tata Motors and Russel Investment?
     
    And if this so called “V” is pointing out how impossible it is to escape from this Bankster-Intelligence-Police Network, who is watching everyones move, then how is it that his Anonymous Ass hasn’t been scraped off of a pavement yet?
     
    There are SO MANY investigations going on right now into the dodgy business of Anglo-American Banking, it is very easy to say that any death what so ever in this industry COULD be connected to a cover up, but as I’ve mentioned before, if even the Tata Motors guy is supposedly connected then why not monitor all the Janitors who worked in a NYC or London Bank who killed themselves in the last month … maybe they saw something?
     
    Granted … The Magee and Crane connection stinks to high heaven because of their connection, proximity of their deaths, and their Executive level positions … trading platforms connection a dead give away.
     
    OR are these announcements from “V” … Mr Anonymous, simply part of a scare campaign being run from J.P.Morgan and other Bank Ivory Towers in order to scare the bejesus out of anyone who might go on the stand in a commission hearing or trial, so that they all well know that a super spooky Bank-Intelligence-Police Network will clean them up no questions asked if they squeal or cooperate. Any witnesses who believes there are NO Justice System protections for them are more likely to scare themselves into non-cooperation with the investigations.
     
    “V” could well be feeding alternative media exactly what Banksters want people to believe at this point in time … psyop … OR, it’s all completely true and we are all totally screwed … LOL! **Drinks shot of tequila**  **kisses ass goodbye**

    • Who is “V”?
       
      I have been following V since he came on the scene just over a year ago.  A while back I did some research and figured out who he was.  Traded a few emails with him.  He was none to happy that I had cracked his cover so easily.  My read on the guy.  He’s legit as to mean he worked at the commodities trading desk of a large financial firm.  I don’t think he was as high up as others who laud his credentials would lead you to believe.  He’s just a guy who worked there.  In V’s defense he never has said he was the top guy, others have said that about him.
       
      So, no, I don’t think he is a disinformation specialist.  Quite the opposite.  He’s pretty much who we are lead to believe he is.  And I must say his track record to date has been sound.

    • @UglyDog
      Thanks for the info. It is quite possible however to be fed info on purpose by people who know you are leaking. If he wasn’t that high up I’m not too sure however how he came up with his original estimate that there was 43 victims on the list (posted in one of Docs threads) … it sounded a little too exact as if it was MORE than rumors that had made it to mid level leakers if you know what I mean.
      There’s definitely some cleaning going on with the Crane and Magee cases IMO, but some of these others might just be randoms.

    • @WillNotBeASlave
       
      “…then why not monitor all the Janitors who worked in a NYC or London Bank who killed themselves in the last month … maybe they saw something?”
       
      Don’t give them ANY new ideas!  Next thing we know, it’ll be raining custodians!  :-/
       

    • @willnotbeaslave
      IMO he could be like Snowden. I believe he is what he says he is, and he was leaking information that came across his terminal. They kept feeding him more and more sensational stuff (which they wanted “released”) but he did not bolt. Until they gave him that bogus “Solar Kill Shot” EMP BS. “Gubbment Psychics see NOTHING using RV past mid or late September 2013″ so Snowden bolted, and released that info, so people could “prepare for the worst” so to speak. TPTB had to feed him that BS to get him to fly. We all knew the rest of it any, at least in our GUT. Now we “Know It” intellectually and KLUMMAC has even said yes, we do this, but we are just looking at terrorists and not American citizens… L stands for LIAR, in KLUMMAC!
      “V” might be the same type of controlled release. Completely believable, and honestly telling what he knows. But maybe just what they want him to “know”. Also, remember that the best lies contain copious amounts of truth, interspersed with just enough venomous lies to get the desired result. 
      @UglyDog, you did him a FAVOR, I hope he is using better OPSEC now… But then again, you are likely much more on the ball than most of the traitors employed by the F’ed Govt. and the F’ed Reserve

    • I have a plan (not really mine) to mint an open source metal currency. copper, silver, gold. To get treatment like BTC. Put metal in people’s hands. 

      All it takes is a first coin run, establishing a standard, and pushing it to be considered just as viable as bitcoin, based on history and present time. Small premium for striking the coins, good benefits in return. Everyone can strike their own, and make a bit of premium mark-up. Put as much into circulation as you feel like. Impossible to “inflate” it in the sense of printed/digi mined currencies. The more you mint, the more valuable it gets.
       
      But WHO will help me make this happen? I need someone with visium, and their own mega stack. A Schiff and/or Sprott. The more the merrier. It will boost physical demand for the metals. For early adopters it could be a simple way to start stacking or even speculating in a safer manner. After that, it will be just like we had globally until the 60′s. Just no paper notes, but plastic fully backed by metal. 

    • @ElaisaKasan
       
      Who IS on our side? 
      The IMF? Elements in the Federal Reserve? 
      Some states have passed laws reaffirming Silver and Gold, in thew event of a U$D crash, but only about 19 last I heard… 
      So yes, states like NY and CA are NOT on their citizen’s side. At least with their current leadership.

    • @undeRGRound
      Who IS on our side?
      The IMF? Elements in the Federal Reserve?
      Some states?
      Good questions. No one is more concerned with your welfare than you. Institutions are concerned with your welfare only to the extent that you influence them. How much influence do you have over the policies of the IMF, FED, and State governments? Not much I would guess.
      Can groups of individuals influence these institutions? Yes or No, depending on how the groups organize and operate. Hopefully, you have figured out by now that your political vote in elections does not have much influence. Electronic voting machines are easily rigged. The whole political process is corrupt. Research how a corrupt political process stifled Ron Paul and his supporters. To have influence, we need to operate outside the established paradigm.
      I think the most effective action we can take is economic. Vote with your wallet. Small groups can become large via networking and may wield economic influence sufficient to affect policies of large institutions. By using fiat legal tender you are supporting the institutions that are stealing your wealth. Bitcoin (and most similar crypto-currencies) are not anonymous since transactions can be tracked eventually from or to individuals associated with addresses. Zerocoin is not ready yet, but will eventually enable confidential, anonymous transactions. Once this is in use, it will be difficult for Banks to confiscate wealth from a properly secured Zerocoin account. It will be difficult for States to tax transactions of which they are not aware. Groups can voluntarily organize to perform tasks which require group participation. Governments, which were originally organized to perform these types of tasks, have become “owned” by bankers to achieve their goal of enslaving humanity with debt. Large governments no longer serve individuals, but instead serve bankers. Very local small scale governments, to the extent they are directly accountable to individual participants, (and to the extent they are not accountable to larger corrupt entities) can serve the common group needs of the individuals that comprise the group.
      To the extent that is practical, consider not supporting the tools bankers created to enslave you.

  3. Since you don’t find much of this in the MSM I sent this story to a really good friend of mine the other day. The reaction I got was quite unexpected. He accused me of “reporting bad news” and told me I should be focusing on the good things going on in the world. This is a very intelligent guy who has done very well for himself in life. His reaction confirmed for me that the average person out there does not want to know what is really going on behind the curtain. They have done well for themselves so far in life and the current paradigm is working out just fine for them. Anyone presenting an imminent change in that paradigm is considered a “doom and gloomer” or a “conspiracy theorist.”  

    It is incredibly frustrating as I have been trying to get this guy to divest some of the considerable money that he has in stocks into PMs. I suggested a reasonable amount, basically 10%-15% of his nest egg. His response was “owning gold is like rooting against the economy.” I’ve throw up my hands at this point and come to realize that most people out there just don’t get it and they don’t want to get it either. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink. At least I have peace of mind that I tried to help him protect himself and his family from what is coming. 

    • @gogetter1132 >>>told me I should be focusing on the good things going on in the world.
      Did you ask him exactly what those ‘good things’ would be? LOL … maybe he would have to think really hard for a while … and then say .. “The world is making progress towards Carbon Trading” **face palm**
       
      You are being confronted by ‘normalcy bias’ … these are the type of people who are totally detached from reality and will completely lose it when they realize their College qualifications are now irrelevant and their high expectations are unachievable … the sad thing is that they are usually the first to commit suicide … right after FOREX traders that is (apparently).

    • Sometimes I feel as if I should get these willfully oblivious people to sign a release stating that I told them that “this” was going to happen, but alas, as Diogenes said 2500 years ago, we believe what we want to believe, and they ain’t-a-gonna’-change, come hell or high water.

    • @gogetter1132,
      Maybe its better to forward your friend the stories of pensions/deposits vanishing, things on Detroit, Cyprus, Poland. And also maybe too-big-to-jail stories like HSBC. If you ask where your friend has his stocks and checking accounts, I’m sure some news will stumble your way before long that will be of direct interest to your friend.

    • @ gogetter1132
      You are not alone. Exactly same for me. So I stopped to warn my friends and relative, since they are looking me like if I use to much drugs

    • I’ve done what I can to help inform the uninformed and I am at peace with that. Looking at the world from my friend’s perspective, he makes very good money, has a beautiful condo on the beach and a beautiful wife. He drives a beautiful car and he just bought a second home as an investment property. The status quo is working out very well for him so when I try to tell him about what is really going on in the world I am met with immediate ‘normalcy bias’ as another poster pointed out. My boss is in the same boat. The difference is that he actually knows a lot about what is going on behind the curtain but he told me that “if the dollar fails nothing else is gonna matter.” 

    • “This is a very intelligent guy who has done very well for himself in life.

      This is classic “normalcy bias” and it works to keep people in their “comfort zone” (aka sheeple pen).  They do not wish to exit this zone and have to be dragged, kicking, crying, screaming, and leaving finger-nail drag marks every inch of the way, if they exit it at all.  So, rather than argue against the truth, they simply label the tellers of said truth as “nuts” or “conspiracy theorists”, as if demeaning them also demeans their utterances.  It doesn’t but they feel as if it does and they can then go on about their sheeple lives.
       
      Anytime someone accuses us of being “conspiracy theorists”, simply ask them if that is like “the LIBOR rigging scandal”?  Calling that a conspiracy was so labeled early on.  Chances are good that you will get a deer in the headlights expression in return but perhaps not.  If not, then the person will have to acknowledge that yes, there really was a conspiracy to manipulate LIBOR interest rates and defraud hundreds of millions of people out of billions of dollars.  In fact, it is well documented and growing as more investigations proceed.  HUGE fines have been paid over it, in fact.  So much for “everything is a conspiracy”.  No, it is not but then saying that there are no conspiracies is just as incorrect.

  4. Can we kill the exclamation marks? Whenever I see them, it just makes me think “Jackanory time”….here comes another story.
     
    I think this is big news, I think its to do with Trading feeds. This is bigger than just FX trading, and Gold Prices. I think its so big that we are not going to know what it is. Ever. But just seeing a glimpse of the shadow, is amazing in itself.

  5. @gogetter1132  That is an interesting comment your friend made.  I wonder if he has ever bought investments that shorted stocks or went against the American market. 
      “Owning gold is like rooting against the economy’ makes about as much sense at ‘having life boats is like rooting against the Unsinkable Titanic’ 
    When you think about that movie, here is a supposedly unsinkable cruise ship plowing pell mell at full speed into a field of ice bergs
    99% of the passengers are below decks, sequestered in steerage while the  1% luxuriates in the upper decks, drinking champagne and eating foie gras.   The captain could be played by Jamie Dimon.  The hubris is palpable.  The Titanic sinks but not before the lower deck passengers are left to drown while the upper deck passengers party on until the cold waters of the Atlantic lap at their feet.
    Lifeboats were unavailable or overloaded. Over 1,500 died.  Many lost their entire fortunes while passengers. Their wealth was held in the cabins and safes.  The Titanic sank on April 15.   I doubt if we will see the Carpathia on the horizon any time soon.
    Is America the modern day Titanic?  Maybe the comparison is a stretch.  But there were a lot of bankers and extraordinarily wealthy people on that ship. 
    I took liberties with the stats of 99% and 1% but you get my drift

    • Probably last longer than we all think I’m afraid.  Budget math for the U.S. Gov’t becomes exceeding onerous starting in fiscal 2015 which begins Oct 2014.  Give it a year from then and it’s game over.

      “I took liberties with the stats of 99% and 1% but you get my drift”
       
      Indeed.  Problem with this 99% and 1% stuff is that EVERYONE is taking liberties with it.  Most of the time, I feel so left out, not being a member of either group.  How about some love for those of us in the top 10%?  We’re neither 1% filthy rich nor 99% lower middle class.  This is a lot like the so-called Baby Boomer “generation” that some how stretches from 1946 to 1964.  When the expression “baby boomer” first came along, it ONLY referred to those people born in 1945-46 due to all of the GIs returning home after WW-II and starting families.  Therefore, my older Sis (born in 1946) IS a baby boomer but I (born in 1949) am not.  Oh, well.  It seems as if there isn’t anything going on today that can’t be turned on its head by someone.  :-/

      Owning Gold has never been harmful to the U$D, but now, if enough folks start jumping in, it will 
      hasten the toppling of this “house of cards” TPTB have built up for so long. I wish I had stayed with
      my PM buying I was doing when Ed_B was only 30 years old… I still have that Silver, but did not buy
      any of the companion pieces. I guess the ladies caught my eye by that time  ;)  

    • @undeRGRound
       
      “Owning Gold has never been harmful to the U$D”
       
      No, it hasn’t.  In fact, when the USD was fully backed by and convertible to gold, it was at its maximum strength and has only gone downhill since then.  Of course, it wasn’t a fiat currency back then.  But both the Gov and the Fed fear gold and silver as competitor currencies to their precious fiat.  This alone is all the admission we need that fiat sucks.  It can’t compete with REAL money, so lets rig it until it can!  :-/
       
      “I wish I had stayed with my PM buying I was doing when Ed_B was only 30 years old…”
       
      LOL!  Yes, so do I.  But I can’t complain too much.  That was about the time that I got serious about saving and investing.  The 18 year bull market in equities pretty much jet-propelled my retirement plan, allowing me to retire in comfort at age 55, so I definitely could have done worse.  If I had bought gold at $200 an oz. and sold it at $1900 an oz., yeah that would have been sweet.  But who knows?  I might have hung onto it for too long or sold it too soon and made much less.  Still a good amount but perhaps not as much as was possible.
       
      “I guess the ladies caught my eye by that time  ;) “
       
      Well, good.  I am happy to hear that you did not waste your money!  ;-)

    Last week JPMorgan Chase paid $2.6 billion in fines and restitution, signed a deferred prosecution agreement and walked away from their 22-year involvement with Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. But according to court documents filed in 2011 by the Trustee of the Madoff victims’ fund, Irving Picard, this was not a simple case of poor risk management at JPMorgan. This was an operation structured like those Russian nesting dolls, with the Ponzi scheme as the outside doll with many more frauds layered inside the big one.

  7. ranger  A couple of things
    I was out at the reange helping train the Private Investigator License Board people qualify.  They were shooting some really nice JHP 40 cal.  Now I know where some of that DHS 1.7 billion rounds were being used.  About half were used at the class today.  More tomorrow
    So I missed the Fed action   I check the UST 10 yr daily and I think it went down about 1-2 BPS, but that is nearly 30 BPS lower than a month ago.  So the Fed is holding the line, desperately. $1 trillion in QE printing and stimulus has us at negative GDP gorwth so those funds are buying no economic acivility, just paddling as fast as they can to get no where. The Fed is out of ammo, unlike the DHS drones.
      With turmoil in the world from Thailand to Ukraine, the Fed is using this turmoil to hold the interest line at an attactive 2.72%, bringing in hundreds of billions of fresh capital from countries that formerly were not investors in the FED. Belgium, aka the conduit for the entire EURO zone, bought something like $7 billion in USTs.
    China dumped nearly $48 billion, so maintaining stability in an unstable world seems the likely course of action here. A trillion dollars is oil on troubled waters.
    The Fed has to hold everything together.  The rest of the world from South America, several Euro zone countries, Ukraine, Khasakstan and Bosnia are going in the crapper.
    So we look like the best horse in the glue factory.
    These idiots think they know that they are doing but in reality they trying to stay afloat like a drowning man standing on top of 5 other people who really are drowning. Yellen is an amiable idiot who can be pistol whipped into doing anything requested of her.
    The Fed is pretty much out of control but with the world reserve currency they are holding the line.  The greater fools and greater fool theory seems to apply here. They think they are in control, sort of, but they are not.
    I think we are at the leading edge of a crunch similar to 2007 when bank after bank crashed. 
    The Dow is going to tank even with the VIX at 15;   way too much complacency. 
    The equities will crash soon enough but the Fed is not done keeping the system afloat long enough to implement MYRA and other pension thefts. 
    That window must be kept open until MYRA is implemented. It will not be on a voluntary basis.
    It will be forced, like SS and Jerry Brown the California Clown, who has implemented the 3% tax on all private employers of 5 employees or more, to fund the terribly badly run CalPers and Calstars. They need fresh blood, I mean money
    Theft implementation is the required action in the POMO stock market, ESF and rate supression schemes.   Yellen is tasked with creating a negative interest rate treasury bill market in order to fully preserve the ring fencing of short term investments and increase ZIRP to NIRP. 
    That is the new paradigm for US and for Europe. 
    Nothing is real:  Rates included. The Fed is the Magi and Wizard of Oz wrapped into one big turd sandwich
    that is my take on things today.  I trust no one and no institution at this time.

    I trust many on SD with their sage advice.
    PS those 3 Barklays Bankers are going to get rotoscrewed. I bet one will suicide before too long

    • @AGXIIK
       
      “The equities will crash soon enough but the Fed is not done keeping the system afloat…”
       
      The Fed is fully prepared to dump unlimited money into this rabbit hole economy, so crashing equities could be a very temporary thing.  The Fed really likes the stock market bubble.  It is their favorite, although the UST bond bubble is a very close 2nd.  They will inflate it more, if necessary.  That said, all the drama involved in this will guarantee a lot of volatility.
       
      “Jerry Brown the California Clown, who has implemented the 3% tax on all private employers of 5 employees or more, to fund the terribly badly run CalPers and Calstars.”
       
      Yet again we see idiots assuming that the problems with various financial matters is a lack of cash.  It isn’t.  Lacking cash is a symptom of idiotic policies, like earning 4% and distributing benefits as if 10% was being earned.  That only goes on for so long before the financial SHTF, but do you think that these boneheads would reduce the exorbitant  pay-outs in order to make these retirement systems financially viable?  Noooooo, can’t do that.  Their union buddies wouldn’t like that very much and they are keeping those idiots in office.  So, the next step is to steal a lot of money from others to re-float these poorly-captained Titanic-like systems.  Hell, it might even work for a few years but it is NOT any kind of a permanent fix.  They are just buying some time with other people’s money, as usual.
       
      “I trust no one and no institution at this time.  I trust many on SD with their sage advice.”
       
      Well, thanks for adding that last comment.  It was starting to get cold here but it has since warmed up some.  :-)
       
      Actually, we can trust many of the institutions.  We can trust them to behave in ways that support THEIR interests and not ours.  We can trust them to grab all the money and power that is within their reach, no matter to whom it belongs.  We can trust them to hold onto their idiotic policies until they have caused the wreck and ruin of every economy that follows the path that they have laid out.  We can trust them to pee and poop on gold and silver and those who convert their “precious” fiat into them.  Much more could be added here, but the gist is clear.
       

    • @JonL
      They succeeded brilliantly in 2008! The Fed works for its PRIVATE owners, and they all got to feed on the meaty debt assets of Merryl/Bear/Lehman at a big discount, and the crap got carried to the Fed Balance Sheet where the IRS back stops any losses by the point of a gun. Now these Banksters have so much of a slush fund that they can buy the other 10 or so Reps and Senators off that they didn’t already own.
       
      This collapse is all part of the plan. The next step of the plan is to return to a Gold Standard after a Stock Market Crash and little-people have their PMs confiscated in a New Deal … Rockefeller & Associates all have the Bullion in the Alps or wherever it has been pre-determined that Private Capital (Gold) will be safe during the last wealth aggregation in the 2 centuries worth of pump and dumps known as the ‘business cycle’ these vampires have orchestrated.
      then it’s … Martial Law … and of course continue to destabilize every other country so that capital keeps the USD looking like the Herpified Prostitute in an internationalist brothel where most are HIV+. AlCIAda have their pieces in place, and finance jackals are ready to spring economic and industrial espionage traps in these developing countries.
       
      Depopulation is the agenda. Carbon Trading/Taxation will be a BIG part of the so called ‘Reset’ Plan (which is actually a debt restructuring and NOT a Reset … it’s a Bankruptcy proceeding where the ‘pound of flesh’ is quite literally the collateral).

    Like willnotbeaslave and EdB said, there does seem to be a method to their madness. The Fed, A very effective tool of the Oligarchs and NWO.  Whether they were using the Fed back 100 years ago to foist this plan on the world or it’s found to be a better tool in more recent years, there is little I can see in the world affairs that leads me to believe it is nothing less than an FIAT/DEBT WMD. Even a brief study of world events and the ringfencing taking place in our country leads me to believe it is a bad player playing bad players on a world wide basis. And then there’s KLUMMAC, his pen, phone and Executive Order mania.

    Some people may be too proud to pick up brass.
     I figure at 6-7 cents per casing, that’s about $500 in completely reloadable goods.
    It all gets turned over to my reloader friends
