Yep. Sometimes accidents aren’t accidents, and suicides aren’t suicides.

My thoughts exactly. ZeroHedge and other sources are stating that insiders are selling like crazy.

I suspect that German Gold issue will claim a few more lives before the dust settles. Of course the ene media will not even acknowledge a problem related to the German Gold and the nearly two trillion confiscated under MacArthur following the end of WWII. The Boston bombing covered the poor smelting of substitute Gold and the crash of paper gold certs. Wonder what the regime has planned for this round of cover-up/diversion from the Gold issues and German anger with US over their Gold deposits being 'returned' to them?

JP Morgan was the largest payment processor of EBT card transactions, certainly a safe business, but is now putting that business up for sale.

This is a good sign. Think about it - bankers work to trash our world, not theirs. So they wouldn’t kill themselves (or be killed) for just doing their jobs. But if they were going to fail at wiping us out... well, they couldn’t live with that.

When the real sht goes down, all these hollow “brick and mortar” bank locations are going to be boarded up quicker than a window in a zombie movie. You will never see a nickel from a banking, investment, or insurance institution, once the bubble bursts.

“Tards”?

Are you actually referring to educated and well read conservatives who are concerned about the future of our currency because of the Socialistic/Fascistic dealings of our Central Bank (the Federal Reserve) “Tards”?

Interesting how these suicides occur on the same day as the State of the Union address, where Obama proposes guaranteed government retirement accounts offered through the US Treasury.

That’s exactly what I did when I read that title..lol....

Because...JP Morgans moving Gold in swaths now...and the Big Stock Boys are selling and moving their investments....

No doubt somethings in the wind.....and these guys are moving revenues hard and heavy from one place to another...more than a resetting...might be they’re moving fast to shore up what’s falling while they get into place ...lots of manipulation.

Bottom line is the world financial markets and storehouses are in “Shift Mode”....by those positioning themselves for the big haul....it will matter who has the most and where it is.

Now we understand why everythings been moving East. That is where it will all come together.

I think that a lot of them are worried that Obama might do a Caligula and simply start confiscating excess wealth from rich people and major corporations in the US to fund his schemes. Oh, he’ll go after the 401s as well, but there are lots of big juicy bank accounts out there, and Obama has already shown that he has no qualms at all about screwing over his friends.

“....Obama proposes guaranteed government retirement accounts offered through the US Treasury....”

Well he’s got to do something or the US will fast loose it’s position with the International Leaders and those playing High Roller otherwise....

... After all Global Warming (Carbon) crashed...so has Obamacare...neither of which were anything but revenue sources to pump to the top of ‘their’ food chain. He has to have a guaranteed source of steady revenue ploy to stay in their game...and lots of it. So MYRA will do nicely if the people fall for it.

Interesting too the Vatican has financial movement as well. ..though they generally keep that close to their chest...and the Pope is on the move.

I think that it was more than being afraid of being poor in most cases. I think some were ashamed, feeling guilty if their recklessness had affected others-lenders, investors, employees, etc. Some may have had life insurance and thought that their families could benefit from it. In those days people had a sense of shame. But some still do., esp. in Asian countries. I never endorse suicide. Just saying. At least one person connected to Bernie Madoff killed himself, but Bernie himself didn’t

I don’t know how many actual Wall St. suicides there were in 1929. I know a fictional one is depicted in the film Splendor in the Grass. Mr. Stamper is from Kansas, and overextended. He’s visiting his son (Warren Beatty) at college and jumps out the hotel window.

Come to think of it, he may have shot himself. It’s been awhile since Ive seen Splendor in the Grass.

Well they know Oblunder’s not to be trusted..and that puts everything on shaky ground to begin with.

Does any here really think Oblunders SOTUA was for us? Doesn't matter if he's lying with numbers....he has to paint a picture for the International Leaders who were very much listening. All leaders are communicating to each other...rarely really to the people of their country.

I know there's a push among the International Business Giants to integrate businesses on all shores...which amazingly Oblunder referenced tonight...I didn't expect that though it's been going on for sometime...but now there's a push and lots of excitement about that.

“Have an exit plan.”

There was also the word”collapse” but that is part of the Twitter template, depending if you’re using a smartphone or regular computer.

I have to admit it scares me. I think that Drudge is a serious man. I don’t think he would do this as a joke or drunk tweet. He doesn’t need to pull publicity stunts.

Not to tropical islands at all...these are investors and this on a Global Scale playing on a chessboard we seldom have knowledge of...but when their board heats up enough evidence gets through that we know pieces are in play ...this time pretty fast and hard IMO.

Iraq just announced they ‘re going to flood the markets with oil...and some dude in S. America wants to do the same with Diamonds. As I said...there’s a huge “shift” happening....the question is to what end?

The most we can do is speculate for by the time the actual facts come out to us, after a long line of distractions and false explanations, it will be too late for us but to pick up the pieces and hold on to what we can.

I think also the powers that be are playing with Putins’s Olympic games.......using it as leverage. Politics is all about the Olympics...and the Revenues they generate directly and indirectly. Notice how the MEdia speaks of maybe the US won’t go for the danger there and cautioning people about going.. ...but knowing how Putin operates Sochi is probably the safest place on earth!

Are we looking at the Great Depression all over again? Very interesting that two bankers committed suicide. Not to mention that the stock markets around the world are taking large hits, and there is no indication that it is just a slight correction. Maybe this will shut the global warming people up for 15 seconds, but then again, maybe not.

I wonder if Drudge’s comment is any way related to recent moves by China to position the Yuan as the new reserve currency. There’s been a lot of chatter about recent moves by China and Russia to strengthen each other’s currency, and those moves have been matched by some strong pre-positioning in Japan. Not so much that you can say they are colluding, but they’re definitely getting their ducks lined up quietly.

We can only speculate, sadly so, but as I mentioned before it seemed to me rather odd that the amount of Gold JPMorgan was moving was pretty much equal to what China is facing Jan.31st.

I think they’re playing with Putin using the Olympics as their hedge. As you know the Olympics have always been political and a revenue source that can do good or harm to the nation hosting the event....

Yes, it’s very possible this is also about Russia and China’s demands of a new reserve currency they’ve been screeching about for awhile now. They’ve been bed buddies for several years, but make no mistake they are definatly not a ‘mutual’ admiration society, more like a prostitute and a pimp...there’s no love lost between them and each has thier “Great plan” for how they want the Middle East and their country’s to line up...always with their own interest front and center.

Japans rather a wild card in the mix I think...they have zip zero resources and will play any game necessary to sustain sources of.....basically who comes out on top, or looks to be from their perspective, will determine their course.

Well sure....the less we know the better for them...no nation wants to upset the “cash cow”, not just Obama. His job is to divert anything happening as we’ve seen in the ME and other countries, from happening here. And the same goes for all those who are on board with the Global Agenda in our Congress....which IMO is why we see the Republicans sitting on their hands.
