Keeping Those “Abs” Toned

A recent Holo­caust deniers’ con­fer­ence in Lon­don featured–among oth­er guests–one Lady Michele Renouf, whose late for­mer hus­band worked with Her­mann Abs, Nazi Ger­many’s most impor­tant banker before, dur­ing and after World War II. Her mar­riage to an Abs asso­ciate may well have been the deci­sive expe­ri­ence in steer­ing her toward her present call­ing as a Holo­caust-deny­ing asso­ciate of David Irv­ing. Abs was a key asso­ciate of the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, the eco­nom­ic com­po­nent of a Third Reich gone under­ground. Have post­war Nazi monies influ­enced the polit­i­cal vec­tor of Ms. Renouf?

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.
