Goldman Sachs, President Of The United States

In this article, I’m not going to trace and list all the Obama and Trump appointees who have ties to Goldman Sachs. The sources are easily available. The Hillary Clinton connections are clear as well.

The point is, Goldman and its allies can exert enormous influence on the direction of the trillion-dollar casino called the stock market.

And the stock market is the universally perceived indicator of the health or illness of the US economy.

The economy is Trump’s trump card. If the stock market plummets and stays down, his credibility as president takes a hit of far more serious proportions than anything we’ve seen so far.

Keep in mind, as well, that giant pension funds all over the US and giant insurance companies (and other entities) invest in the stock market—and these organizations’ stability, as endangered as it is right now, would fracture in far more serious ways, if the stock market collapsed.

Super-banks like Goldman Sachs therefore hold the political fate of a president, any president, in their hands.

“Play ball with us. Otherwise, we can take down the market.”

What does Goldman Sachs want, aside from a free hand to wheel and deal inside and outside the law re investing and trading?

Goldman wants:

The basic survival of Globalist “free trade” (no tariffs)—the cornerstone of mega-corporate control of the world economy.

Through US military threats and interventions and attacks, the prosperity of the military industrial complex.

The continued prosperity of the pharmaceutical cartel—despite its avaricious market practices and outpouring of destructive medical drugs.

These are a few of Goldman’s top priorities.

But of course, Goldman has a Plan B, if they decide Trump’s presidency is too shaky. And now that several corporate CEOs and financiers have left Trump’s corporate council over the recent Charlottesville violence and Trump’s response to it, causing the president to disband that council, Goldman is obviously mulling Plan B.

What would that be?

Another 2008 financial debacle and yet another round of massive federal bailouts?

Or a war? Wars float all financial boats that count in the eyes of elites.

Perhaps the now-departed Steve Bannon, who used to work for Goldman, would have a few interesting points to make on these issues.

During the presidential campaign, Trump issued a number of statements attacking Goldman Sachs and claiming he was immune from their influence. That was false. Trump obviously knew the score, as did Obama, as did Hillary Clinton.

Now he is hoping Goldman will hold the stock market together for him.

At the outset of his presidency, I wrote that I supported Trump on two major counts. He was mercilessly attacking major media news, and he had stopped Hillary Clinton in her tracks. I said everything else was up for grabs.

A lot of that grabbing is being done by Goldman Sachs.

Lord Blackheath Surfaces Again…But This Time It’s Not…


Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
July 31, 2017

All of you remember Lord James of Blackheath, don’t you? Well, in case you’ve forgotten who he is, he was the British peer who, a few years ago, stood in the House of Lords and gave a most peculiar speech that cited unusual amounts of gold in the world. I wrote about his speech – which was causing something of a minor fuss on the internet at that time – in my book Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations. In fact, I cited much of his remarks, as Hansard reported them, in that book. The upshot of Lord Blackheath’s remarks was that he was trying to get to the bottom of how much gold there was in the world, and as a result, contacted acquaintances in the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street (the Bank of England), and was given answers that amounted to approximately 1500 tons. There was, of course, much more to Lord Blackheath’s remarks than just that, but that was one of the things that grabbed my attention, for at around the same time, the calls within Germany by Germans to audit their country’s gold reserves had reached such a pitch that the Bundesbank decided to begin the process of repratriation of Germany’s gold deposits from London, Paris, and most importantly, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Of course, I don’t for a moment assume these pressures were the only reason Germany decided to do this. If anything, they were convenient pressures, when the real reasons were probably geopolitical, and growing mistrust between Berlin on the one hand, and London and Washington on the other.

In any case, the amounts being cited by Lord Blackheath were far below even the reported amounts of just German gold allegedly on deposit in New York. And of course, Lord Blackheath himself expressed no considerable mystification at the time at not being able to get any rational approximation from his contacts.

Well, Mr. J.R. found this article and passed it along, and I regard it as so significant in terms of my “high octane speculations” about hidden systems of finance, that I absolutely have to comment on it. Here’s the article:

Lord James of Blackheath: I Helped Smuggle Children Used For Slavery And Sex

Now, much as I’d like to belabor the moral myopia of helping to smuggle children out of the United Kingdom when one suspects “something might be going on but I did it anyway,” I suspect the article itself does a decent enough job of that.

So I will pass on to my high octane speculation of the day by way of a bit more background: my friend and colleague, former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban development Catherine Austin Fitts has expressed the opinion – during an interview with Daniel Liszt, a.k.a. the “Dark Journalist” – that the western elites have always admired slavery as a system of economic privilege and control. The problem, she averred, was that the capital could not be “perfected,” after all, slaves ran away to pursue a life of freedom and their own economic self interest. Now, however, the means of “perfecting the capital” are available, as the following article suggests:

Wisconsin Company to Implant Microchips in Employees

Most of us, I’m quite certain, who read the second article will have a “John of Patmos moment” contemplating the dire implications of that development.

But if one is running covert human trafficking rings – whether for child sex slavery, adult sex slavery, or other forms of slavery – such technology does allow one to “keep track of the cargo,” i.e., to perfect the “capital.”

Which brings me chin-to-chin with my…

…High Octane Speculation of the day: For years, in several books, blogs, and interviews, I’ve maintained that there is in existence a hidden system of finance, whose basic “mechanics” is the trade in bearer securities backed by “gold”, and hence, for me, I am of the opinion that the various “bearer bond scandals” are not, in spite of all official protestations to the contrary, easily dismissible as “simple counterfeiting scams.” We are assured – at one time even by President Obama himself – that the “securitiesrecovered during these scandals are completely fake, and that there is absolutely nothing to it. Yet, the same scam is run repeatedly, over and over. As I’ve observed several times: “one does not counterfeit a seven dollar bill.” In other words, even if the “securities” recovered during these scandals are fakes, no counterfeiter would attempt to run the same scam over and over again, unless there was an element of truth lurking somewhere in the center of it. The fact that many of these “securities” are “gold-backed” bearer bonds, takes us back once again to lord Blackheath’s mystification a few years ago on the floor of the House of Lords, as recorded in Hansard’s. My argument then was, in order to make a hidden system of finance work, and remain off the books, one key mechanism was the physical movement of such “securities.”

Further research, however, revealed something else, namely, that the term “gold” often functioned as a codename for drugs, and given the overwhelming size of the underground drug economy as a proportion of the financial system, I also concluded that the “gold” backing these “securities” may not have been exclusively actual bullion, but drugs.

In recent years, however, we’ve seen an increase of stories about human trafficking and sex-slavery rings, involving every demographic from little children to Siamese women. The extent of these stories has touched every continent, implying that there are world-wide networks involved in this “business,” which, given its vast extent, must also comprise an underground economy of considerable size. The Taken series of movies with Irish actor Liam Neeson explores this brutal system in fictional guise. The political purpose of such networks is, of course, rather obvious, for it entangles the rich and politically powerful in compromising activity, which create what Catherine Fitts has described as “control files” to blackmail compliance. With this possibility, one is looking at the implication that such rings are deeply and intimately entangled with the “deep state” and various intelligence agencies, and thus, with my hypothesized hidden system of finance.

Which brings me back to Lord Blackheath, and a final, new, speculation. What if “gold” is code not only for “drugs,” but for human “cargo” and “capital”, as part of this enormous network? In other words, what if slavery itself is a crucial component of this hidden system of finance? Need laborers to help build all those underground secret installations? If that sounds far-fetched, don’t forget that there’s precedent: the Nazis did it, and incidentally, they did it within an economic empire being run by the SS, where every unfortunate victim was tagged, tattooed, and numbered as the “capital assets” of the system.

Such a speculation goes a long way, for example, to explain the difficulties facing Vatican bank reform attempts, for if my speculation be true, then that bank would be intimately connected to these “financial activities,” and hence, attempts to deal with clergy scandal abuses and Vatican financial reform are not two separate issues, but intimately connected. Just recently, George

Cardinal Pell, who was tasked by Pope Francis to oversee the Vatican budget, has returned to Australia to answer sexual abuse charges.

However, if what I am proposing is true, then the extent of this human trafficking-finance ring will not be confined solely or exclusively to the Vatican: it will be intimately entwined with other large financial institutions. The Vatican might just end up being the (convenient) patsy. The hypothesis might even go a long way to explain one possible reason behind all the mysterious banker deaths and “suicides” of the past few years.

See you on the flip side..

Bank Bailout In Italy & A Problem Looming Between The…

Banksters
Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
July 10, 2017

Mr J.K. sent this article about the bailout of Banco Monte dei Paschi di Sienna in Italy and some other banks, to the tune of a mere twenty-five and a half billion dollars, mere pocket change. But there’s something else looming in this article and it provokes some high octane speculation of the day. Here’s the article:

Italy swoops in to save another bank leaving taxpayers on the hook for over $25 billion

In my opinion, the central story here is not the bailout of troubled Venetian banks (some stories never change, do they?) but Italy’s, and Europe’s, and one of the world’s oldest, banks in continual operation since the Renaissance, the Banco Monte dei Paschi di Sienna, and one statement in particular caught my interest, and I suspect behind its careful “un-detailed” words lies a huge story which one might summarize with the word “cover-up”:

Finance Minister Pier Carlo Padoan announced late Tuesday that the government had received approval from the European Commission to pump 5.4 billion euros into Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena (BMPS) in exchange for the lender undertaking a major restructuring overhaul. (Emphasis added)

And, one paragraph away, there’s this:

Toxic assets are at the heart of the bank’s demise and its plan includes the intention to sell down 28.6 billion euros of gross non-performing loans (NPLs), of which 26.1 billion euros will be securitized (converted into marketable securities).

Toxic assets, non-performing loans, in a major western bank!?!?

So it isn’t so!

Then, later, we read this:

Indeed, there could also be an opportunity for brave investors, suggests Surry, if Italy follows the path trodden by Spain which has seen its banking sector shrink from around 70 lenders to closer to a dozen since the financial crisis.

“Potentially BMPS is a consolidation play because ultimately the bank will be clean and definitely there is consolidation to take place in Italy from the 400-plus institutions down to probably 150,” he offered.

So we have:

1) The bailout of Banco dei Paschi di Sienna;

2) Which received approval for a bailout in exchange for “restructuring” from the European Commission, which is now, apparently, in charge of what banks the Italian government gets to bail out, and the conditions under which it can do so;

3) Which restructuring presages a consolidation of lenders throughout the Italian banking system, resulting in fewer “lenders/banks”.

I don’t know about you, but gee, this pattern looks a little familiar.

There’s a great big huge elephant in the room, however, that the article is not talking about. In fact, one might say there’s not only an elephant, but a rhinoceros in the room. The elephant? Deutsche Bank and its relation to the Banco dei Paschi di Sienna, as covered in previous blogs on this site. And the rhinoceros? Italian prosecutions of the elephant.  Noteworthy here is the entire absence of any mention of either one throughout the entire article, and that raises my suspicion meter into the red zone, and with it, some unusual and very high octane speculations.

What disturbs me here is that any action by the European Commission in this matter should be viewed as a conflict of interest, since the EU is largely a Franco-German union, with everyone else along for the ride as Frau Merkel gets to play Charlemagne (or perhaps, Karlamagne, or Karlin or Kaiserin, or something), a role she clearly appears to be enjoying. But why would the European Commission have reason to step in? I suspect, strongly, that the real bank being protected here, and being bailed out, is Deutsche Bank and its own high exposure to “toxic assets”, some of them via its entanglement with the Banco dei Paschi, and that the “restructing” of the Banco dei Paschi di Sienna might, in reality, be an attempt to disguise things and prevent them from emerging into public light as Italy is openly debating leaving the European Union (Charlemagne, Inc., or perhaps better put, Charlemagne A.G.). If so, then a disturbing pattern is emerging here: using national banking crises, the European Commission is establishing the conditions to “restructure” national banking systems according to its own whims, and to make them subject to the European Central Bank in Frankfurt. In the process, more will be swept under the rug.

And that means the can is simply being kicked down the road, for they have no genuine solutions.

Let’s hope the Italians look at this whole thing much more closely.

See you on the flip side…

Pump & Dump 2.0

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
June 1, 2017

Remember the whole derivatives mortgage-fraud pump-and-dump scheme that made the banksters lots of money, until the housing pricing bubble burst, and the too-big-to-fail banks were bailed out by the too-cowardly-to-jail Congress? If you don’t, then you haven’t been paying attention, and especially haven’t been paying attention to Catherine Austin Fitts, who has been writing, talking, and warning about this method of deep-state fraud and theft for years. For us, this has represented one aspect of the whole financial mechanism for a vast deep state black projects and covert operations apparatus.

And its real-world operation has been grounded in housing and mortgage fraud market manipulation, all accomplished by robo-signing, document fraud, asset fraud, ledger manipulations, you name it, it’s there.

But I’ve often wondered, if we’re looking at the whole picture… after all, housing is, for most of us, our biggest life purchase.

But what is the second biggest?

Our automobiles (which, in some cases, a new one costs almost as much as an older house, so there’s no much difference).

And that, of course, raises the question, why not use easy credit, pump-and-dump and foreclose and resell methods on automobile loans as well? Granted it won’t be nearly as big an income and fee-generator as mortgages, but, what the heck, if you’re a bankster, then just throw those auto-loans into the derivative bundles along with credit default swaps on mortages, and voila, you’ve just expanded your money-harvesting mechanism tremendously. And if you’re a deep state finance and funding person shuffling money to this or that hidden project or covert op, you need all you can get, so why not?

Now, until this week, I kept these high octane speculations to myself, because I didn’t see any evidence that something like this might indeed be going on…

…until, that is, Mr. D.S.M. sent me this little gem from our friends at Zero Hedge:

UBS Hints At Rampant Auto Lending Fraud; “It’s Not Just Smoke And Mirrors Anymore”

Before we get into this article, please note that UBS is, of course, the Union Bank of Switzerland, which readers here will recognize as one of those banks having some alleged dubious associations.  So, as they say, consider the source.

With that in mind, consider the first four paragraphs of the article, and particularly the second one:

For months we’ve written about the imminently doomed auto bubble in the U.S., spurred in no small part by an unprecedented relaxation of underwriting standards by banks that would put even the shenanigans of the 2008 mortgage crisis to shame.  From stretched out lending terms to promotional interest rates, auto lenders have increasingly played every trick necessary to get those incremental new car buyers into the most expensive car their monthly budgets could possibly absorb.

That said, in recent weeks there has been growing concern that consumers, auto dealers and/or banks have been going beyond simply relaxing underwriting standards and have instead been forced to commit outright fraud in order to attract that incremental auto volume growth.  As UBS Strategist Matthew Mish told Bloomberg, “something is definitely going on under the hood…it’s not just smoke and mirrors anymore.”

The evidence is growing. First, the explosion of technology makes gaining access to information to improve credit scores very simple. Internet searches for ‘credit score’ are at record levels. Second, our survey finds 21% of auto loan borrowers admitted to some form of inaccuracy in their loan applications. Third, there is growing concern reported among auto lenders around fraud, which is the extreme case of this behavior.

Overall, the explosion and adoption of technology makes gaining access to “proven” methods for improving credit scores extremely simple. To this point, the popularity of internet searches for “credit score” has been rising consistently and is near peak post-crisis levels (Figure 7). Similarly, our survey finds that 21% of auto loan borrowers admitted to some inaccuracy in their application for non-mortgage related debt (auto, student or credit card loan). More concerning, this trend may be systemic as 29% of other consumer loan (i.e., student loan, credit card) borrowers acknowledged some form of inaccuracy in their applications (Figure 8).

As I speculated prior to quoting these paragraphs, throw in this auto-loan fraud into the mix of derivatives bundles and one has the makings of another financial crisis which, by Zero Hedge’s lights, could be almost as big as the mortgage-housing price collapse of 2007-2008. In a certain sense, this could be far worse, since auto dealers, RV dealers, and so on, carry millions of dollars of inventory on their lots, and, as an overhead expense, insurance and in many cases, security.

Now imagine sudden falling prices as the bubble bursts, at the same time as a lack of cash and… well, you get the idea.

But there’s something lurking in the middle of all of this that I find profoundly disturbing, and it’s at the center of today’s high octane speculation. Notice how much of the fraud is being enabled, not so much by the internet, as by internet-derived or -sourced or -manipulated information. Imagine, now, for a moment, this is combined with hacking activities. A customer comes into an auto-dealer, asks for financing on a brand shiny new Mercedes or Cadillac SUV, but has already manipulated his or her credit score, and even managed (if they’re really good) to post a few extra thousand dollar blips into their bank account for good measure. The bank or auto-dealer then uses the same internet to verify or corroborate the application information. In short, the electronic market – from finance to loans – has(as Catherine Fitts has so often said) no integrity, and being thus utterly divorced from human reality, is subject to potentially massive corruption, while at the same time distorting price(to the buyer) and risk (to the seller or loan-originator), the most fundamental information in any economy or single transaction. (In this regard, ask yourself, why should today’s modern new car cost almost as much as an older house? Answer: you’re paying for all that fraud, and extra overhead it requires the automakers and dealers to carry.) Now, extend this corruption to wide-spread scale, and pretend you’re an auto-maker, or auto-dealer: would you rather do business with electronic blips, or with someone who walks in, and puts actual cash into your hands for a full payment, or partial down payment?

As the corruption and fraud spread, so too will the revolt, and this, I suspect, is also the reason many states in the USA are now passing bullion depository legislation, and resolutions underlining that the only constitutional money authorized under the US constitution is that made by Congress whose value is regulated in bullion.

Iceland, Debt Jubilee & Media Blackouts


Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
May 10, 2017

When was the last time you heard about Iceland?

Remember them? The people in the small country on a large volcanic rock in the northern Atlantic Ocean that rounded up their bankers, through them in jail, and declared a debt jubilee?

I have to admit, that I haven’t heard about them recently either, until Mr. B.H. sent along the following article, and there are a couple of things that caught my eye and fuel my imagination. As always, my approach here is “assume this story is true” for the sake of some high octane speculation of the day:

All Debts Of Island’s Population Are Forgiven By The Government

Now, of course, the first thing that caught my eye was the fact that, apparently, there’s almost a complete news media blackout in the USSA by the corporate controlled media, and of course by implication, the major search engines:

As good as an approach that this is it is now being alleged that the US Rothschild Controlled Media has apparently completely blacked out any news involving Iceland’s debt forgiveness. Attempting to search Iceland’s mortgage debt forgiveness only leads to about 359,000 search results with none of them being from the United States. Neither major or minor news outlets mention a single word about Iceland’s decision.

Now, of course, we don’t know for certain how much, if any, debt the Rottenchild network held in Iceland, but we take the point: someone somewhere doesn’t want anyone looking at Iceland. We all know why, for I suspect few readers of this website would contemplate the picture of a Darth Soros, or a Rockefailure, or a Rottenchild behind bars with anything less than a smile on their face. The same, I suspect, holds true for the current crop of “associates”, the Geitners, Yellens, and Draghis of the world. Probably, someone, somewhere, is leaning over a table with their beer or coffee talking to someone else and wondering how these people can be Dominique Strauss-Kahned.

The idea of a debt jubilee itself is slowly and steadily gaining strength. And it’s an idea worth considering, for recall, its origins stem from Mesopotamia (as I outlined in Babylon’s Banksters), when private debts grew to the point that they could not be repaid. This led to the jubilee year and the ceremony of the “Breaking of the Tablets”, when the king would ceremonially break the tablets containing contracts and debts. The reason? When debts could no longer be repaid, people simply left the country to start over somewhere else.  Now, however, in the wake of the bubble-bailout cycle that culminated in 2008, we’re told that the derivatives alone represented over 14-17 quadrillion dollars, several times more than the domestic product of the entire planet. It’s a nice way for the Rockefailures Soroses and Rottenchilds to enslave several generations.

But there was another statement toward the end of the article that caught my eye, and that fuels today’s high octane speculation. It was this:
The US government apparently owns 96% of bad loans, while major banking only owns about 3% of bad loans. This poor allocation leads to US government guaranteeing to collapse, while big banks stay rich and do not have to worry about ever foreclosing on themselves.

I couldn’t help but think of former Housing and Urban Development assistant secretary Catherine Austin Fitts’ model of rolling out the new financial system, which she has described as the “financial coup d’etat,” wherein all the liabilities were moved off the books of the banks, and into the public (government) sector, while all the assets were moved from the latter to the former.

Nifty, huh?

Ok, so what? Where’s the high octane speculation in this? Well, try this on for size: imagine you want to sell the idea of a completely cashless society (which of course, really isn’t cashless, it’s merely a way of protecting your currency issuance central banking cartel). How would one sell the idea? Through a debt jubilee: use our system of blockchain or virtual currency, and all  your debts are forgiven. Only those continuing to use cash will have their debts retained. The “reset jubilee” button coupled to cashlessness… really, if one thinks about it, it’s an interesting way to get rid of all that “bad paper” on the ledgers, and I wouldn’t put it past them.

Yet Another Banker Jumps…

Banksters

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
April 4, 2017

The sad list of bankers taking walks off of rooftops continues to grow, this time with the death of Charles W. Murphy. Many people shared this story this week (and a big thank you to them all), and at first glance, there’s “nothing unusual” in the story:

Partner At Paulson & Company Jumps To His Death In Midtown Manhattan

Toward the end of this article, it is suggested that Mr. Murphy may have been experiencing financial difficulties, hinting that this may have been a motivation for his death, as he was also apparently being treated for depression:

It appears that at least part of Murphy’s troubles have been financial: a parking attendant at a nearby garage told the New York Post that Murphy’s wife, Annabella , crashed their Honda Odyssey last summer but could not afford to fix it. ‘She didn’t even have enough money to pay for the damage,’ the attendant said.

Murphy’s first wife, former Heather Kerzner, got married to hotel billionaire Sol Kerzner after the pair split. They were married for 11 years before their marriage ended in divorce.

According to the Daily News, Murphy was being treated for depression before his suicide.

But then comes the admission of a connection to the collapse of convicted financial fraudster Bernie Madoff, and, incidentally a connection to Morgan Stanley:

Murphy is now the fourth person connected to Madoff to commit suicide in the years following the Ponzi scheme scandal.  French aristocrat Rene Thierry Magon De La Villehuchet was found dead in 2008 just after the news broke. His AIA Group lost $1.5 billion. Ex-U.S. Army major William Foxton, 65, killed himself in 2009. A year later, Madoff’s son Mark was found dead after he hanged himself in his New York apartment.

Murphy was previously a research analyst at Morgan Stanley, and was cohead of the European financial institutions group at Credit Suisse.  He graduated from Harvard Law School and MIT Sloan School of Management according to the Mail.

Making this story even more bizarre, for some reason the unfortunate Mr. Murphy chose a venue that was not far away from his personal apartment, and one that had yet another strange connection:

The Sofitel hotel where Murphy killed himself made headlines in 2011, when French politician and head of the IMF, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was accused of raping a maid in one of the hotel’s suites. Three months later, all charges were dismissed. In 2012, he settled a lawsuit with the maid.

In all of this I cannot stifle the thought – in spite of the best efforts to make this look like nothing more than a depression-suicide, perhaps brought about by monetary difficulties and depression, and perhaps even depression and/or feelings of guilt for being connected to Bernie Madoff – that there is much more here than meets the eye.  Yes, my “high octane speculation” motor is running in high gear. For one thing, one or maybe even two suicides connected with Madoff I can believe could be written off to feelings of guilt and depression. But four? Bluntly put, this looks to be more like “house cleaning” and “loose end tidying” than anything else.

The question is, why?

One answer is suggested by the following:

Bernard_Madoff

There we read the following paragraph:

On March 12, 2009, Madoff pleaded guilty to 11 federalfelonies and admitted to turning his wealth management business into a massive Ponzi scheme. The Madoff investment scandal defrauded thousands of investors of billions of dollars. Madoff said he began the Ponzi scheme in the early 1990s. However, federal investigators believe the fraud began as early as the mid-1980s[16] and may have begun as far back as the 1970s.[17] Those charged with recovering the missing money believe the investment operation may never have been legitimate.[18] The amount missing from client accounts, including fabricated gains, was almost $65 billion.[19] The Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) trustee estimated actual losses to investors of $18 billion.[18] On June 29, 2009, Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison, the maximum allowed.[20][21]

(Emphasis added)

Stop and ponder that for a moment: Madoff’s scheme, which stole billions of dollars from investors through fraud – may have begun in the 1970s, and perhaps even as far back as the founding of his company in the 1960s. And this raises a very important question: in all that time, no one in the federal regulatory agencies ever found anything suspicious about his activities? It was only uncovered when Madoff’s sons went to the feds and disclosed it, resulting in Madoff’s arrest the very next day? (Let that one sink in for a moment too.) There’s only three ways such an arrest would have happened without a long investigation: either (1) the sons brought absolutely convincing proof with them when they complained to federal authorities, or (2) there may have been a quiet investigation proceeding secretly, and they simply provided the final bit of evidence needed for an arrest, or (3, my own suspicion) Madoff’s operation had proceeded all those years with the connivance and blessing of some faction within the federal government, a faction dispersed throughout various agencies.

Why do I suspect the latter? Because the time frame suggested in the Wikipedia article about the beginning of Madoff’s “operation” the 1980s and 1970s, were the same time period(s) that others have suggested that the vast mortgage fraud pump-and-dump schemes began in federal housing programs; similarly, it was the same time period – the 1980s – that others suggest that a vast financial scheme, involving fraudulent securities and billions of dollars, was concocted by the American “intelligence ‘community'” to wage a fatal economic war on the Soviet Union, a scheme that was also connected to the financial dealings and suspicions many have raised surrounding 9/11 (and don’t forget that Deutsche Bank connection there!).

So the bottom line to my “high octane speculation of the day” is that this death is connected to all the others, for reasons we may never know. Perhaps Mr. Murphy found something and had to be “suicided”, or perhaps he found something so chilling and/or depressing that he took his own life. Or perhaps he knew something that he didn’t even realize the significance of, and was a loose end to be “cleaned up”. But whatever happened, I strongly suspect there’s a much bigger story to all these banker deaths and “suicides”  – particularly in the pattern exhibited over and over, of bankers walking off of rooftops from London to Paris to Hong Kong – than meets the eye.

See you on the flip side…
