FTR #823 Caution, Banksters at Work, Part 2 (Still More Collateralized “Death” Obligations)

Updating FTR #’s 772 and 792, the broadcast highlights a recent social psychology experiment that indicated a strong inclination toward dishonest, criminal behavior on the part of banking professionals. After noting Deutsche Bank’s precarious position, the program notes two other suspicious deaths. Deutsche Bank’s Calogero Gambino allegedly took his own life, following the alleged suicide of another Deutsche banker–William Broeksmit. Citigroup’s Shawn Miller supposedly slit his own throat, this after placing some 911 calls complaining about being followed. The Senate banking committee recently concluded an investigation of the banking industry’s involvement in the commodities’ markets, something that offers tremendous opportunity for illegal speculation, as well as leaving banks with potentially catastrophic exposure to fluctuation in those markets. In October, a dramatic fluctuation in the market for U.S. Treasury bills has raised ominous questions concerning the stability of this global financial safe haven. The probability of such an event happening was once every 1.6 billion years!


German Corporations Buying Major U.S. Businesses

German corporations are ramping up purchases of key American companies. Always bear in mind the control of corporate Germany by the Bormann capital network, the economic component of a Third Reich gone underground. Fundamental here, as well, is the work of Dorothy Thompson, who (writing of the Third Reich’s plans for global domination in 1940), related that the masters of German industry, finance and politics saw economic control leading automatically to political control.

FTR #792 Caution: Banksters at Work (More Collateralized “Death” Obligations)

In FTR #772, we looked at a number of suspicious deaths in and around the financial industry, this as a number of legal investigations into the misdeeds of the “banksters” were proceeding. This program updates that extraordinary mortality rate. One of the surreal, almost hallucinatory financial instruments that were at the center of the 2008 financial collapse were CDO’s–collateralized debt obligations. We wonder if the high mortality rate, the ongoing capital troubles and legal investigations plaguing the firms may be related to these deaths. Are we looking at collateralized “death” obligations? We note that JP Morgan Chase has experienced a particularly high mortality rate.


More Collateralized “Death” Obligations

“Participo” alerts us to an article from The New York Post updating the mortality rate in the financial industry. These deaths are occurring as numerous investigations are underway into various kinds of malfeasance in the global financial sector, manipulation of the foreign exchange rate, in particular.


FTR #772 Body Count II: (Collateralized “Death” Obligations)

One of the surreal, almost hallucinatory financial instruments that were at the center of the 2008 financial collapse were CDO’s–collateralized debt obligations. As a number of legal investigations into mischief apparently committed by major financial institutions on a number of fronts have gained momentum, there has been a rash of suicides linked to the businesses under investigation. In addition, a Wall Street Journal reporter disappeared and an Argentine bank repository–supposedly fireproof–burned down. Are we looking at collateralized “death” obligations?


Collateralized “Death” Obligations?

Both JP Morgan Chase and Deutsche Bank are, or have been the focal points of ongoing investigations into their operations. Now, two execs, one former and one active, have allegedly committed suicide. The mortality rate among London based banking executives has been particularly high in recent years. We wonder if the high mortality rate, the ongoing capital troubles and legal investigations plaguing the firms may be related to these deaths. Are we looking at collateralized “death” obligations?


Deutsche Bank and the Financial Meltdown

It is important to understand that German banks are anything but blameless in the European financial crisis. Deutsche Bank carried a large amount of bad debt on its books and lied about it in order to fool investors. In 2007, the Federal Reserve had to help bailout Deutsche Bank. The U.S. sued Deutsche Bank over its manipulation of the American mortgage market.


Keepin’ On Keepin’ On: Will Ratzinger/Benedict Become the Vatican’s “Holy Ghost” (Spook)?

There are numerous indications that “fascist-friendly” institutional continuity will be maintained at the Vatican. The Pope will have the title of “Emeritus Pope.” This will allow him to wield influence behind the scenes. That should be easy to accomplish. The Pope will continue to reside Vatican City, retaining diplomatic immunity from future prosecution or litigation. Ratzinger/Benedict’s successor may well be someone cut from the same fabric as he. The timing of the conclave that will select the next pontiff may be moved up.


Vatican Report and the Pope’s Resignation: “Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!”

We’ve posted several times in connection with the resignation of Benedict XVI. Media speculation has centered on a report submitted to Ratzinger/Benedict detailing blackmail of a powerful “Velvet Mafia” of gay prelates inside the Vatican. That scandal appears to be overlapping some of the inquiries into the Vatican finances. Apparently blackmailed by outsiders over their extensive and relatively visible liaisons, the “Velvet Mafia” appears to have had dealings with the Vatican bank–long a focus of intrigue and covert fascist machinations.


Another “Interesting” Maneuver by Ratzinger/Benedict

Pope Benedict’s resignation has garnered much speculation as to the reason why. Less speculation has been given to some of the appointments that the Pope has made just before leaving the Vatican. The Vatican official representing the Holy See to Moneyval (overseeing money laundering and terrorism investigations for the Council of Europe) has been transferred to Colombia. Might this have anything to do with the reputed relationship between late Vatican financial adviser Roberto Calvi and Pablo Escobar of the Medellin Cartel?
