Another Violent JPMorgan Death: More Collateralized “Death” Obligations

In FTR #’s 772, 792 and 823, we highlighted suspicious, violent deaths in the financial industry. These occurred as many major financial institutions are the focal point of ongoing criminal investigations. JP Morgan employee Michael Tabacchi and his wife Iran Pars Tabacchi were found dead, deaths alleged to be a murder-suicide.

What Was Gary O’Donoghue Working On at the Time of His Death?

In FTR #’s 772, 792 and 823, we looked at a number of highly suspicious deaths of people involved with the financial industry–we termed them “collateralized death obligations.” Now we learn of the curious demise of Gary O’Donoghue, a lawyer working as “a solicitor in corporate finance” in the City of London economic epicenter. A skilled “footballer,” (soccer player) O’Donoghue went missing at his 29th birthday party. His corpse was found at the bottom of a “disused rubbish chute in a block of flats.” This one does NOT pass “the sniffs test.” All of the contents of this website as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of videotaped lectures are available on a 32GB flash drive.

Greek Prime Minister Continues to Pursue World War II Reparations from Germany

As discussed in FTR #788, Germany has NOT reimbursed Greece for the enormous damage wrought during World War II. Once again, that purloined wealth and the Bormann capital network that was the vehicle for the reinvestment of the Nazis’ World War II loot is center stage. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsirpas is demanding that the money be repaid. Tsirpas’ demand focuses attention on a dynamic that lies at the foundation of 20th and 21st capital flows.

Ghosts of World War II and the Greek Economic Crisis

In FTR #746 and FTR #788, we analyzed the Greek economic crisis, the EMU and “Clausewitzian Economics.” As Greece and Germany square off following the election of a left-wing coalition government in the former, the ghosts of World War II are materializing in frightening and dramatic fashion. The new Greek finance minister has noted the rise of Nazism in Greece as a result of the economic and social deprivation stemming from the austerity doctrine. There also remains the possibility of raising the specter of Germany’s unpaid World War II debt to Greece, thereby citing the economic and political dynamics inherent in the Bormann capital network, about which we speak so often.

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!


FTR #788 Greek Tragedy, Part 2: “Clausewitzian Economics–The Continuation of War by Other Means”

This program details the horrifying developments unfolding in Greece. Embodying Carl von Clausewitz’s concept of “politics as a continuation of war by other means,” Greece is a cruel and depressing example of the long-standing strategy of German/Underground Reich geopolitics. Realizing a strategy for German political domination of Europe and the world, the EU and EMU are direct manifestations of the strategy first advocated by Friedrich List in the 19th century.


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?


The New World Ordoliberalism Part 2: A ‘Third Way’ to Fascism

Ordoliberalism has long been the economic philosophy guiding German policy-makers. But with the creation of the eurozone, ordoliberalism has quietly become the default policy-stance for the entire zone. This has been happening with little recognition that ordoliberal ideas have been playing such a profound role. And there’s been even less attention paid to the ordoliberal philosophy itself. Surprise! It’s kind of fascist. Updated 7/26/2013
