Banker Deaths Climb to 15, as Goldman Sachs Managing Director Found Dead

banker deaths
Another high level banker has been found dead.
Nicholas Valtz, a 39-year old managing director at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. in New York, was found dead Sunday afternoon in Napeague Harbor where he had reportedly gone earlier that day to kiteboard. Valtz’ body was found still tied to his kite.
Kiteboarding, also called kitesurfing, combines elements of windsurfing and paragliding which can garner speeds of up to 40 mph. His brother told Bloomberg that Valtz was still new to the sport.
“As a cross-asset sales executive, he helped manage orders for trading clients and pitch them products and ideas among different types of securities. His wife, Sashi Valtz, also works at Goldman Sachs as head of global third-party research sales, according to her LinkedIn profile,” Bloomberg reported.
While the majority of articles have made it clear the police are still investigating this incident and the cause of death is yet unknown, the Daily Mail already ran with the headline, “Goldman Sachs managing director, 39, found dead after kiteboarding accident“.
The incident marks the 15th reported death of a senior banking and finance executive in recent months as just a few weeks ago, JP Morgan Executive Director Julian Knott shot his wife Alita to death with a shotgun before turning the weapon on himself.
Zero Hedge posted the recap of recent banker deaths below after a 52-year-old female banker at France’s Bred-Banque-Populaire jumped from the 14th floor of the bank’s Paris headquarters back in April:
*Note: The count is not actually 16, as #2 on the list Karl Slym was not actually a banker but the managing director of a major car company.
1 – William Broeksmit, 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG, was found dead in his home after an apparent suicide in South Kensington in central London, on January 26th.
*2 – Karl Slym, 51 year old Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym, was found dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok on January 27th.
3 – Gabriel Magee, a 39-year-old JP Morgan employee, died after falling from the roof of the JP Morgan European headquarters in London on January 27th.
4 – Mike Dueker, 50-year-old chief economist of a US investment bank was found dead close to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State.
5 – Richard Talley, the 57-year-old founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado, was found dead earlier this month after apparently shooting himself with a nail gun.
6 – Tim Dickenson, a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG, also died last month, however the circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown.
7 – Ryan Henry Crane, a 37-year-old executive at JP Morgan died in an alleged suicide just a few weeks ago.  No details have been released about his death aside from this small obituary announcement at the Stamford Daily Voice.
8 – Li Junjie, 33-year-old banker in Hong Kong jumped from the JP Morgan HQ there.
9 – James Stuart Jr, Former National Bank of Commerce CEO, was found dead in Scottsdale, Arizona, the morning of Feb. 19. A family spokesman did not say what caused the death.

11 – Kenneth Bellando, 28, a trader at Levy Capital, formerly investment banking analyst at JPMorgan, jumped to his death from his 6th floor East Side apartment.
12 – Jan Peter Schmittmann, 57, the former CEO of Dutch bank ABN Amro found dead at home near Amsterdam with wife and daughter.
13 – Li Jianhua, 49, the director of China’s Banking Regulatory Commission died of a sudden heart attack.
14 – Lydia _____, 52 – jumped to her suicide from the 14th floor of Bred-Banque Populaire in Paris.
In other news, billionaire Jeremy Grantham, co-founder and chief investment strategist of a Boston-based firm with $117 billion in assets under management, says he is positive another horrific stock market crash is coming and will be “unlike any other” the modern world has seen…
Newsmax Money News reported yesterday:
“We have no right to be surprised by a severe and imminent stock market crash,” explains Mark Spitznagel, a hedge fund manager who is notorious for his hugely profitable billion-dollar bet on the 2008 crisis. “In fact, we must absolutely expect it.”
Billion-dollar investor Warren Buffett is rumored to be preparing for a crash as well. The “Warren Buffett Indicator,” also known as the “Total-Market-Cap to GDP Ratio,” is breaching sell-alert status and a collapse may happen at any moment.

The Manipulated Dialectical Destiny of the BRICS

Published by The Daily Bell - July 22 2014 //http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/35498/The-Manipulated-Dialectical-Destiny-of-the-BRICS/
The dollar's 70-year dominance is coming to an end ... Within a decade, greenback's could be replaced as the world's reserve currency ... The dollar's hegemony continues to be cemented by the operations of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank. Founded at Bretton Woods, they're both Washington based, of course, and controlled by America, despite some Francophone windowdressing. The advantages this system bestows on the US are enormous. "Reserve currency status" generates huge demand for dollars from governments and companies around the world, as they're needed for reserves and trade. This has allowed successive American administrations to spend far more, year-in year-out, than is raised in tax and export revenue. By the early Seventies, US economic dominance was so assured that even after President Nixon reneged on the dollar's previously unshakeable convertibility into gold, amounting to a massive default, dollar demand kept growing. So America doesn't worry about balance of payments crises, as it can pay for imports in dollars the Federal Reserve can just print. – UK Telegraph
Dominant Social Theme: The dollar is going down. An unavoidable tragedy.
Free-Market Analysis: This pernicious elite meme amply illustrates what we call directed history. In this case endless articles are appearing to explain why the dollar is in terminal decline as the BRICS (including South Africa) are ascending.

We last wrote about this issue here:
Don't Be Fooled by Transcontinental Rivalries
We made a number of points about the reality of the BRICS emergence and how when one examines the reality of the global economic system a good many questions emerge. Skepticism is advised.
Here's more:
Last week, seven decades on from Bretton Woods, the governments of Brazil, Russia, India and China led a conference in the Brazilian city of Fortaleza to mark the establishment of a new development bank that, whatever diplomatic niceties are put on it, is intent on competing with the IMF and World Bank.
... The new BRICs Development Bank, modelled on the IMF, will have a $100bn currency reserve available to lend around the world, giving distressed debtor nations an alternative to the "Washington consensus". For a long time, the BRICs have been paying in to the IMF, yet been denied additional influence over what happens to the money. Belgium has more votes than Brazil, Canada more than China.
The institutions governing the global economy have failed to keep pace with reality. Modest reforms giving the large emerging markets more power, agreed with much fanfare in 2007 and again in 2010, have been stalled by Washington lawmakers. The BRICs have now called time, setting up their own, rival institution based in Shanghai.
The key to the dollar's future is petrocurrency status – whether it's used for trading oil and other leading commodities. Here, too, change is afoot. China's voracious energy appetite and America's increased focus on domestic production mean the days of dollar-priced energy look numbered ...That would undermine the US Treasury market and seriously complicate Washington's ability to finance its vast and still fast-growing $17.5 trillion of dollar-denominated debt.
... Although the dollar's reserve status won't end overnight, the global payments system is now moving inexorably towards that outcome. The US currency accounted for just 33pc of all foreign exchange holdings in 2013, on IMF numbers, down from 55pc in 2001. Within a decade or so, a "reserve currency basket" may emerge, with central banks storing wealth in a mix of dollars, yuan, rupee, reals and roubles, as well as precious metals.
... The dollar's status is a big question. Judging the outcome is more akin to star-gazing than scientific economics. But the establishment of this BRIC Development bank, timed to coincide with the anniversary of Bretton Woods, is an audacious and significant move. The world's emerging giants now have thumbscrews on the West.
This is a serious article in a serious paper and the announcement at the end that "the world's emerging giants now have thumbscrews on the West" is a momentous statement.
Reading the article, the demise of the dollar seems both evident and inexorable. And yet, having lived through the period that has yielded this conclusion, we are in a position to say with some authority that the end of the dollar is a manipulated occurrence, not an inevitable one. It is directed history, in other words.
You have to begin with the nomenclature itself. The name was coined by a banker at Goldman Sachs over ten years ago and eventually gave rise to a rivalry – created to begin with by the mainstream media – between the BRICS and the West.
Once the name was applied, it became logical for the four (five really) emergent economic powers to create various economic policies in concert with one another. In reality, there was no reason why Brazil would consult with Russia, or India with Brazil. It only seemed logical because the name predicted the outcome.
Take a step back, please, and observe the dialectic. That's how globalist elites work, by creating conflicts that move a given argument or sociopolitical strategy forward. Sometimes the dialectic is accomplished via a war. Other times, it is created via supposed economic necessity.
Of course, the necessity in such cases is manufactured; and we would argue that is the case when it comes to this suddenly polarized economic world. Just look at this:
... Although the dollar's reserve status won't end overnight, the global payments system is now moving inexorably towards that outcome. The US currency accounted for just 33pc of all foreign exchange holdings in 2013, on IMF numbers, down from 55pc in 2001. Within a decade or so, a "reserve currency basket" may emerge, with central banks storing wealth in a mix of dollars, yuan, rupee, reals and roubles, as well as precious metals.
This is simply too neat. The alternative media has been predicting this outcome for decades, virtually ever since Keynes suggested his globalist bancor after World War II. But now that this "global payment system" is almost a reality, we're supposed to believe it is merely an "inexorable outcome."
In the US, the Obama administration is fragmenting the border between the US and Mexico. Waves of immigrants are sweeping into the US as part of what is shaping up to be the seeming deliberate implementation of a North American Union that is eventually supposed to encompass Canada as well.
The US stock market is being shoved into the stratosphere in order to create what we call a "Wall Street Party" that will create enormous faux-prosperity before a destined crash. But the crash itself will simply add more impetus to monetary globalism. Out of chaos ... order, in this case an international money-regime.
For a decade, this Internet Era has revealed the plans of internationalist bankers in more and more detail. Every significant monetary or military event points the way toward this ongoing consolidation. That's why articles like this one in the Telegraph are so surprising. We can see clearly that the dollar's destabilization was a manipulated event, one that the Bush regime pursued through several regional wars and a plethora of "security" spending as they secured the fundaments of a massively expensive surveillance state.
There was nothing natural or inevitable about any of this. The concept of the BRICS was created by Goldman Sachs; its evolution is convenient, even suspicious. The dollar's destabilization was an act of political orchestration as well. And now we are to believe that a "reserve currency basket" is the obvious destination.


If it is destiny, it is a manipulated one.              http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/35498/The-Manipulated-Dialectical-Destiny-of-the-BRICS/

Why Are All The Passports Shown at the MH17 Crash Site in Pristine Condition?

downed mh17 flight
This is a picture of the downed MH17 flight. Take a close look at it. Carnage. There have been other, far more graphic pictures shown on the internet, bodies and body parts strewn around, blackened wreckage, small fires still burning. Also on the internet are seemingly innocent pictures of some of the luggage and belongings of those ill-fated passengers. Like this one…

The photographer was very lucky, look at the way the Amsterdam tee-shirt is laid out, and so clean, brilliant white, not a mark on it, in fact all the items in this photograph look no worse than they would look after a normal search at customs. Everything is clean, no smoke marks, no mud, blood or anything else.
This is even more fortuitous for the photographer, all the children’s items have landed in one place, how amazing after an explosion at 33,000 feet.

Then of course there’s the issue of the pristine passports.

The Ten Plagues That Are Hitting America Right Now

#1 The Plague Of Flies In The Upper Mississippi River Valley
This is perhaps the least dangerous plague, but it is also one of the most interesting.  Just recently, a plague of flies was so thick in the upper Mississippi River valley that it showed up on radar
The mayflies were detectable on radar around 845 pm and reports in the towns and cities began rolling in of the swarming and piles of mayflies. Numerous videos and pictures were circulating on social media, some of which are posted below as well.
The radar detected the flies about 845 pm, emanating from the river (the source) with echo values similar to that of light-moderate rain (35-40 dBZ). With a general south-to-north wind flow above the surface, the mayflies quickly moved north once in the air. As the flies dispersed moving north-northeast, they also gained altitude with some of the echo being detected as far north as Black River Falls and as high as 2500 feet above ground.
By late evening, mayflies were swarming in La Crosse, La Crescent, Stoddard and points up and down the river. While the emergence of mayflies from their river bottom mud dwelling can occur at various times through the warm season depending on the species, this particular emergence was that of the larger black/brown Bilineata species.
Here is one photo of the flies that was posted by the federal government…

#2 The Chikungunya Virus
As I wrote about the other day, down in Florida health officials have discovered the very first confirmed cases of the chikungunya virus to be transmitted locally.  In other words, it is now being passed to people that have not even traveled out of the country.
An epidemic of the virus has already been declared down in Puerto Rico, and authorities are deeply concerned about the possibility of one up here as well.
Already, cases of the virus have been reported in 30 different states and the total number of cases in the U.S. is more than five times higher than in any other recent year.
If you live in an area that has a lot of mosquitos, you might want to be very, very careful right about now because this is a virus that is exceedingly painful
With illness onset, the person develops high fever, chills, and joint pain, followed in some by a rash on the trunk, limbs and face lasting 3-4 days. Muscle and joint pain last about one week. Joint pain is often severe and in some people lasts longer, up to several months.
#3 The Wildfires Out West
The massive wildfires in Washington, Oregon and western Canada have spread clouds of smoke over vast areas of the northwest United States in recent days.  The following excerpt comes from a recent CNN report
Wildfires spanning almost 170,000 acres are driving hundreds of people from their homes in Washington state and across the border in Canada, officials said.
Washington authorities say the fires surged overnight to 168,713 acres in the state. The flames have encroached on towns.
Janet Pearce of the Washington state Department of Natural Resources said the four fires had not been contained as of Friday morning. An estimated 80 homes were destroyed and cell phone service was knocked out.
#4 The Drought In California
The nightmarish multi-year drought in the state of California just continues to get even worse.
This week it was reported that 81 percent of California is now experiencing “extreme drought” or worse.
Three months ago, that number was just 68 percent.
And we are being told that downtown Los Angeles is now the driest that it has been since rain records began in 1877.
For much, much more on this, please see my recent article entitled “20 Signs The Epic Drought In The Western United States Is Starting To Become Apocalyptic“.
#5 The Virus That Has Killed Millions Of Our Pigs
A horrific pig virus known as porcine epidemic diarrhea came over from China a little over a year ago.
Since then, it has killed about 7 million pigs, and approximately 100,000 more are dying each week.
#6 Citrus Greening
Have you ever heard of citrus greening disease?
Perhaps not, but it has gotten so bad down in Florida that experts are now saying that the entire citrus industry in the state “could be destroyed”
“It’s horrible — it’s a disaster,” says Fred Gmitter, a professor of horticulture science at the University of Florida Citrus Research and Education Center.
It might be time to kiss your OJ goodbye, unless science steps in to save the day.
At least 70% of Florida’s citrus trees are already infected by the disease, known as citrus greening, huanglongbing, or occasionally just with an ominous “it,” as in “It’s here.”
Florida’s citrus crop this year is the lowest it’s been in 30 years, and agricultural authorities have continued to lowertheir production estimates. Orange-juice prices are up nearly 20% this year alone and will continue to rise. The disease was a major factor in the lime shortage that made the price of a box of Persian limes jump from $18 to $85 last December. Prices could jump higher for oranges. Researchers and growers say that if a cure isn’t found, the entire $9 billion Florida citrus industry could be destroyed.
#7 Bananas Going Extinct?

Your bananas are not safe either.
According to CNBC, the TR4 fungus is spreading so rapidly that it could eventually totally wipe out the variety of bananas that we find in our grocery stores today…
Banana lovers take note: The world’s supply of the fruit is under attack from a fungus strain that could wipe out the popular variety that Americans eat.
“It’s a very serious situation,” said Randy Ploetz, a professor of plant pathology at the University of Florida who in 1989 originally discovered a strain of Panama disease, called TR4, that may be growing into a serious threat to U.S. supplies of the fruit and Latin American producers.
“There’s nothing at this point that really keeps the fungus from spreading,” he said in an interview with CNBC.
While there are nearly 1,000 varieties of bananas, the most popular is the Cavendish, which accounts for 45 percent of the fruit’s global crop—and the one Americans mostly find in their supermarkets.
#8 The Number Of Earthquakes Is Increasing
For a long time, scientists tried to deny that the number of earthquakes is increasing.
But now, the USGS is finally admitting that the number of big earthquakes has doubled
If you think there have been more earthquakes than usual this year, you’re right. A new study finds there were more than twice as many big earthquakes in the first quarter of 2014 as compared with the average since 1979.
“We have recently experienced a period that has had one of the highest rates of great earthquakes ever recorded,” said lead study author Tom Parsons, a research geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Menlo Park, California.
Fortunately, most of the earthquakes in the U.S. so far this year have been relatively small or have been in isolated areas.
But they have been popping up in very unusual areas (such as Oklahoma), and as seismic activity along the Ring of Fire continues to increase, it is probably only a matter of time before one of our major cities gets hit with a major tragedy.
#9 Superbugs
Thanks at least in part to the massive overuse of antibiotics, a new generation of superbugs is arising.  Scientists have no way to kill these superbugs, and according to experts they are finding their way “into healthcare facilities nationwide”
Drug-resistant superbug infections have reached near-epidemic levels across U.S. hospitals, with an alarming 500% increase now documented in a study just published in the August issue of Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology(the journal of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America).
Lead author of the study, Dr. Joshua Thaden, warned “This dangerous bacteria is finding its way into healthcare facilities nationwide… A CRE epidemic is fast approaching… Even this marked increase likely underestimates the true scope of the problem given variations in hospital surveillance practices.”
The study also found that an astonishing 94 percent of CRE infections were caused by healthcare activities or hospital procedures.
#10 Fukushima
The Fukushima nuclear disaster is the gift that just keeps on giving.
Hundreds of tons of radioactive water are being released into the Pacific on a continual basis, and this could potentially affect our oceans and our food chain for generations to come.
But it is a “slow motion disaster” that is already “old news”, so most Americans don’t think about it anymore.  But the truth is that there is a lot of evidence that it should be taken very seriously in this country.  For much more on this, please see this article.
In Japan, of course, things are even worse.
In fact, one Japanese doctor that was working in Tokyo says that radiation sickness is rampant in that city
Since December 2011, I have conducted thyroid ultrasound examinations, thyroid function tests, general blood tests and biochemical tests on about 2000 people, mostly families in the Tokyo metropolitan area expressing concerns on the effects of radiation. I have observed that white blood cells, especially neutrophils, are decreasing among children under the age of 10. There are cases of significant decline in the number of neutrophils in 0-1 year-olds born after the earthquake (<1000). In both cases, conditions tend to improveby moving to Western Japan (Neutrophils 0–>4500).Patients report nosebleed, hair loss, lack of energy, subcutaneous bleeding, visible urinary hemorrhage, skin inflammations, coughs and various other non-specific symptoms.
And this Japanese doctor believes that things are so dire that he says that the entire city of Tokyo should be evacuated…
Residents of Tokyo are unfortunately not in the position to pity the affected regions of Tohoku because they are victims themselves. Time is running short. I took an earlier step forward and evacuated to the west. My fellow doctors of medicine, I am waiting for you here. And to the people in Eastern Japan still hesitating, all my support goes to facilitating and enabling your evacuation, relocation, or a temporary relief in Western Japan.
Just like with Chernobyl, this radioactive material is going to silently make people sick and kill people all over globe for years to come, and most of them will never have any idea what is really happening to them.
So what do you think about all of this?

The Hidden Life of the Kennedys : The Elite Dynasty That Got Decimated (Pt. II)              ~   it just truly amazing ..nobody wants 2  c the ....NAZI's  ....connection ???

Jul 21st, 2014 | http://vigilantcitizen.com/vigilantreport/hidden-life-kennedys-elite-dynasty-got-decimated-pt-ii/

John F. Kennedy was an iconic President who defined an entire era. Although he was placed in office by his powerful father, it seems JFK attempted to cut the strings that turn U.S. presidents into puppets of the country’s shadow government. We will look at the hidden side of the John F. Kennedy presidency.

In the first part of the series we looked at the rise to power of the Kennedys. You should read that first.

John F. Kennedy’s assassination was nothing less than a turning point in American history. The gunshot that hit Kennedy’s head brutally awakened an innocent American public who then entered a turbulent age of metamorphosis. Roused from the peaceful slumber that was the post-war, baby-boom era of the 50′s, the American public saw a drastic change after the trauma of JFK’s death. This new era was not-so-coincidentally linked with the rise of television and mass media in American homes, which became a powerful engine of change.
JFK was the perfect face of this new era. His natural charisma and charming manners were fully exploited by mass media to turn this politician into a celebrity beloved by the entire country. The feelings of hope and optimism engendered by JFK were not only merely an illusion, however. Records show that he actually tried to bring significant change to his country, by going head-on with the most powerful organizations controlling the country: the CIA, the Federal Reserve and big oil companies.
Let’s look at JFK’s presidency.

The President for a New Era of Mass Media

JFK was the ultimate prototype of a political figure evolving in the era of mass media. Even before he became President, JFK and his team fully embraced the power of television to gain widespread support. In 1960, Kennedy faced Richard Nixon in the first televised debate in U.S. history and its outcome is now legendary. While Nixon appeared pale, sickly, sweaty and nervous, JFK hired the services of a studio makeup artist to obtain a TV-friendly, healthy glow.
During the presidential debates of 1960, JFK had the presence of a television personality while Nixon kept wiping sweat off his face.
During the presidential debates of 1960, JFK had the calm presence of a seasoned television personality while Nixon kept wiping sweat off his face, making him appear as the stereotypical “bad guy” we’d see in a movie.
Polls after the debate were quite telling: A slight majority of radio listeners deemed Nixon to be the winner of the debate, while an overwhelming majority of television viewers considered JFK to be the winner. The debate provided a valuable lesson to all future politicians: In the era of television, politics are henceforth about appearances, visceral gut impressions. and sound bites. While watching candidates debate in their living rooms, people could now conclude: “I like this man” or “I don’t trust this man” without even listening to what was said. The outcome of the debate was an important factor leading to JFK’s victory. But that was only the beginning of the “Camelot era”, a King Arthur-inspired term to define the popularity of Kennedy’s era.
After taking office, JFK’s inauguration speech shook the nation. It is now widely considered to be the best speech in American history. It was fully adapted to this new era of mass media and contained the ultimate political soundbite, one that is echoed in mass media to this day.
‘And so, my fellow Americans – ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.’
It was not long before the Kennedys became full-fledged celebrities, evolving in the same media arena as movie stars and pop singers. They appeared in magazine spreads and their fashion sense even contributed to new style trends.
While JFK was the most powerful man in the world, he also used the power of media to convey a casual and relatable side - one that is appreciated by the general public (especially women). Most politicians following him will attempt to exploit the "relaxed family man" side, with varying success.
While JFK was the most powerful man in the world, he also used the power of media to convey a casual and family-oriented side, which was relatable to the general public.
JFK was also the first President to have press conferences and public addresses broadcast live on television, marking a new way of conducting politics in the U.S. In short, Kennedy was the first President to be fully present in the arena of mass media, using his charm, charisma, and sex appeal to create a worldwide phenomenon, forever changing the world of politics.
While mass media great amplified every aspects of JFK’s life, it was his untimely death that caused one of the biggest mass media moments in history. The hours, days and months following his assassination were a turning point in journalism, as we witnessed a new era of live television news feeds.
The moment when a shaken Walter Cronkite removed his glasses and announced the death of JFK is probably one of the most intense moments in television history. It also marks the transition period between old-time written news and live television coverage.
Walter Cronkite announcing JFK’s death is a defining moment in U.S. history. Visibly shaken, Cronkite removed his glasses and addressed a nation that was in complete shock. This moment also marks the transition period between old-time written news and live television coverage.
Because JFK’s aura was so amplified by mass media, his death caused a shock-wave of trauma and dismay across America and the world. It was one of the first mega-rituals conducted by a shadow elite … but far from the last. After JFK, several personalities were literally built by mass media to then die and cause shock and trauma. The era of mass media also corresponds to a new era of control by the occult elite.

Links With the Darker Side of Hollywood

While JFK enjoyed the status of a Hollywood celebrity, he also partook in the darker aspects of it. During the 1960s, Hollywood decidedly steered towards sexual exploitation, mind control and dark occultism, and JFK was close friends with its main figures, namely : Frank Sinatra, Peter Lawford, and Sammy Davis, Jr., a.k.a “the rat pack”. According to Fritz Springmeier, these men were MK slave handlers, linked with Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan.
Many of the movies and shows use Monarch slaves as actors & performers. They also use lots of slave handlers such as Frank Sinatra, Peter Lawford, & Bob Hope. And occasionally the use programmers such as Anton LaVey, Jerry Lee Lewis. (…)
Frank Sinatra has been a slave handler. He has handled Bob Hope’s slaves, when Bob Hope has lent them to the Rat Pack (which consisted of Dean Martin, Frank, Sammy Davis, Jr. Peter Lawford & Joey Bishop). Frank Sinatra spends time with the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds.
- Fritz Springmeier, The Illuminati Formula to Create a Mind Control Slave
Recently released FBI files describes “sex parties” attended by the Kennedy brothers, Sammy Davis, Jr., Frank Sinatra (an MK slave handler) and Marilyn Monroe (a Beta Programming slave).

JFK’s string of affairs with various partners during his Presidency is no secret today. The two most famous women associated with JFK are Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield, two blonde movie stars with strikingly similar personas. There is, however, another point they both have in common: They were both “partners” of Anton LaVey. In fact, Mansfield was a “High Priestess” of his Church of Satan.
In San Francisco for the 1966 Film Festival, Mansfield visited the Church of Satan with Sam Brody (her lawyer and boyfriend) to meet Anton LaVey, the church’s founder. LaVey awarded Mansfield a medallion and the title “High Priestess of San Francisco’s Church of Satan”. The Church of Satan proclaimed Jayne a pledged member, and she displayed a framed membership certification in her pink bedroom. The media enthusiastically covered the meeting and the events surrounding it, identifying her as a Satanist and romantically involved with LaVey. That meeting remained a much-publicized and oft-quoted event of her life, as well as the history of the Church of Satan
- Strait, Raymond (1974). Tragic Secret Life of Jayne Mansfield.

Pictures of Jaynes Mansfield with Anton LaVey
Pictures of Jayne Mansfield with Anton LaVey
The link between Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Anton LaVey and JFK is not simply the result of a coincidence. Behind his theatrical facade, Anton LaVey was a MKULTRA handler who programmed Monroe and Mansfield to be Beta Kittens.
“Anton LaVey has been the mind-control handler/programmer of a number of Hollywood actors & actresses, including Jayne Mansfield and Marilyn Monroe, who both serviced him as sexual slaves”.
- Anton Szandor LaVey, Whale.to
“Marilyn Monroe was an orphan, and during her infancy the Illuminati/CIA programmed her to be a Monarch slave. Before becoming an actress, while she was still a stripper, she spent time with the founder of the Church of Satan Anton LaVey. Victims of LaVey have pointed him out as a mind-control programmer.”
- Ibid.
Marilyn Monroe speaks with John F. Kennedy after famously singing him "Happy Birthday Mr. President". Wearing her iconic diamond-studded dress (diamonds are associated with Presidential Models in MK symbolism), the song was actually a Beta Kitten sensually singing to the man she is servicing.

Wearing her iconic diamond-studded dress (diamonds are associated with Presidential Models in MK symbolism), the performance was actually a Beta Kitten sensually singing to the man she is servicing.
Like most MK slaves, Monroe and Mansfield died young (at age 36 and 34 respectively) and in odd circumstances (“overdose” and car accident).

A Bold President

Despite all of the partying and distractions, JFK was a busy and dedicated President. While he dealt with gigantic issues such as the rise of civil rights and the Cold War, he also dealt with lesser-known issues. Indeed, JFK quickly understood who was in charge in Washington and that it was not him, the supposed democratically-elected President. It was the shadowy elite who controlled the country from behind the scenes, through various powerful groups, who worked completely independently from the government. In what appears to be an attempt to bring power and influence back to democratically elected representatives, JFK clashed with the CIA, the Federal Reserve, big oil and even the military-industrial complex. Almost all of the policies adopted that went against these groups were quickly reversed after his death.

Against the Fed?

The Federal Reserve System was created in 1913 to become the central banking system of the United States. However, despite its “governmental name”, the Federal Reserve System is not federal. It is not even governmental. Although it was created by an act of Congress, the Federal Reserve is completely independent from the government. It is essentially a private organization owned by twelve credit monopolies, which are owned by the most powerful banking families in the world.
Black Law’s Dictionary defines the Fed as a:
“Network of twelve central banks to which most national banks belong and to which state chartered banks may belong. Membership rules require investment of stock and minimum reserves.”
The Federal Reserve is the entity that lends money to banks, who then lend money to citizens, with interest. More importantly, the Fed creates U.S. money, which it loans to the U.S. government, also while charging interest. The government must then collect income taxes to pay this interest. The sixteenth amendment, which gave Congress the power to collect income taxes, was passed the same year the Fed was created.
In 1934, Congressman Louis T. McFadden of Pennsylvania gave an astounding speech exposing who was behind the Fed. According to him, it was the same people who are behind important world events. Without naming them, McFadden described the elite bloodlines of the world.
“Mr. Chairman, we have in this Country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks, hereinafter called the Fed. The Fed has cheated the Government of these United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the Nation’s debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Fed has cost enough money to pay the National debt several times over.
“This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of these United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Fed and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.
“Some people who think that the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lender. In that dark crew of financial pirates there are those who would cut a man’s throat to get a dollar out of his pocket; there are those who send money into states to buy votes to control our legislatures; there are those who maintain International propaganda for the purpose of deceiving us into granting of new concessions which will permit them to cover up their past misdeeds and set again in motion their gigantic train of crime.
“These twelve private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this Country by the bankers who came here from Europe and repaid us our hospitality by undermining our American institutions. Those bankers took money out of this Country to finance Japan in a war against Russia. They created a reign of terror in Russia with our money in order to help that war along. They instigated the separate peace between Germany and Russia, and thus drove a wedge between the allies in World War. They financed Trotsky’s passage from New York to Russia so that he might assist in the destruction of the Russian Empire. They fomented and instigated the Russian Revolution, and placed a large fund of American dollars at Trotsky’s disposal in one of their branch banks in Sweden so that through him Russian homes might be thoroughly broken up and Russian children flung far and wide from their natural protectors. They have since begun breaking up of American homes and the dispersal of American children. “Mr. Chairman, there should be no partisanship in matters concerning banking and currency affairs in this Country, and I do not speak with any.
“The Federal Reserve Bank destroyed our old and characteristic way of doing business. It discriminated against our 1-name commercial paper, the finest in the world, and it set up the antiquated 2-name paper, which is the present curse of this Country and which wrecked every country which has ever given it scope; it fastened down upon the Country the very tyranny from which the framers of the Constitution sough to save us.
In this speech of rare veracity, Congressman McFadden refers to “bankers who came here from Europe” and who use their immense wealth to influence world events who even pushed for a Russian revolution. His description of the “bankers” is perfectly applicable to an elite family like the Rothschilds, a dynasty of bankers from Europe who have been financing the war efforts of several countries for centuries.
That being said, was Kennedy actively working against the Fed or not? To this day, this question is still hotly debated. Some argue that JFK issued an executive order going against the Fed, others claim that he actually made the Fed stronger. There appears to be a great deal of contradictory information and disinformation floating around on the subject, a classic sign of being a “sensitive” issue.
In his 1990 book Crossfire, Jim Marrs states that, five months before his assassination, JFK signed Executive Order 11110, allowing the government to issue interest-free money by bypassing the entire Federal Reserve system.
Another overlooked aspect of Kennedy’s attempt to reform American society involves money. Kennedy apparently reasoned that by returning to the constitution, which states that only Congress shall coin and regulate money, the soaring national debt could be reduced by not paying interest to the bankers of the Federal Reserve System, who print paper money then loan it to the government at interest. He moved in this area on June 4, 1963, by signing Executive Order 11,110 which called for the issuance of $4,292,893,815 in United States Notes through the U.S. Treasury rather than the traditional Federal Reserve System. That same day, Kennedy signed a bill changing the backing of one and two dollar bills from silver to gold, adding strength to the weakened U.S. currency.
Kennedy’s comptroller of the currency, James J. Saxon, had been at odds with the powerful Federal Reserve Board for some time, encouraging broader investment and lending powers for banks that were not part of the Federal Reserve system. Saxon also had decided that non-Reserve banks could underwrite state and local general obligation bonds, again weakening the dominant Federal Reserve banks.
A number of “Kennedy bills” were indeed issued – the author has a five dollar bill in his possession with the heading “United States Note” – but were quickly withdrawn after Kennedy’s death. According to information from the Library of the Comptroller of the Currency, Executive Order 11,110 remains in effect today, although successive administrations beginning with that of President Lyndon Johnson apparently have simply ignored it and instead returned to the practice of paying interest on Federal Reserve notes. Today we continue to use Federal Reserve Notes, and the deficit is at an all-time high.”
- Jim Marrs, Crossfire

A comparison of a "United States Note" as issued by Kennedy (top) and a regular "Federal Reserve Note". Notice that the banner at the very top says "United States Note" instead of Federal Reserve Note". Also, the "B" logo of the Federal Reserve does not appear on the United States Note.
A comparison of a “United States Note” (top) as issued by the U.S. government and a regular “Federal Reserve Note” (bottom) as issued by the Fed. Although the bills are esthetically similar, the United States Note is debt-free, interest-free and bypasses the entire parasitical Federal Reserve System.
According to Marrs, the Excecutive Order was an effort by Kennedy to transfer power from the Federal Reserve to the United States Department of the Treasury by replacing Federal Reserve Notes with Silver Certificates. Here is the Executive Order :
SECTION 1. Executive Order No. 10289 of September 9, 1951, as amended, is hereby further amended (a) By adding at the end of paragraph 1 thereof the following subparagraph (j):
‘(j) The authority vested in the President by paragraph (b) of section 43 of the Act of May 12, 1933, as amended (31 U.S.C. 821(b)), to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury not then held for redemption of an outstanding silver certificates, to prescribe the denominations of such silver certificates, and to coin standard silver dollars and subsidiary silver currency for their redemption,’ and (b) By revoking subparagraphs (b) and (c) of paragraph 2 thereof.
SECTION 2. The amendments made by this Order shall not affect any act done, or any right accruing or accrued or any suit or proceeding had or commenced in any civil or criminal cause prior to the date of this Order but all such liabilities shall continue and may be enforced as if said amendments had not been made.
John F. Kennedy,
June 4, 1963.
However, Marrs’ theory was challenged by observers who state that Executive Order 11110 does not mention the creation of four billion dollars worth of “United States Notes” and is merely an amendment of a 1951 Executive Order pertaining delegating powers to the Secretary of the Treasury in issues pertaining to silver certificates.

Against the CIA and war?

Kennedy’s Presidency took place in a time period where the United States and the USSR were playing a game of chess on a worldwide scale. Through a variety of covert operations, the CIA fermented revolutions, funded armed groups, and assassinated leaders to gain control of several parts of the globe. During Kennedy’s presidency, the Cold War caused conflicts in areas including as Vietnam, Laos, and Cuba.
In 1961, Kennedy authorized the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the long-planned invasion of Cuba using a CIA-sponsored paramilitary group named “Brigade 2506″. The ultimate goal was the overthrow (or assassination) of Fidel Castro. The operation ended up failing, causing JFK to publicly take the blame for it. Kennedy was then quoted as telling an official within his administration: “I want to splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.” A few months later, CIA director Allen Dulles, Deputy Director for Plans Richard M. Bissell, Jr., and Deputy Director Charles Cabell were all forced to resign. After Kennedy’s death, Allen Dulles was part of the Warren Commission that investigated JFK’s assassination – a nomination that still raises eyebrows to this day.
In 1963 Kennedy learned about the assassination of the president of South Vietnam, Ngo Dinh Diem, which was first disguised as a suicide by the CIA. The bloody coup reportedly shook JFK to the core.
“According to General Maxwell Taylor, “Kennedy leaped to his feet and rushed from the room with a look of shock and dismay on his face which I had never seen before.” Kennedy had planned that Ngô Đình Diệm would be safely exiled and Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. recalled that the U.S. president was “somber and shaken”. Kennedy later penned a memo, lamenting that the assassination was “particularly abhorrent” and blaming himself for approving Cable 243, which had authorised Lodge to explore coup options in the wake of Nhu’s attacks on the Buddhist pagodas. Forrestal said that “It shook him personally … bothered him as a moral and religious matter. It shook his confidence, I think, in the kind of advice he was getting about South Vietnam.”
- Halberstam, David Singal, Daniel J, “The Making of a Quagmire: America and Vietnam during the Kennedy Era”
In the last days of his administration, JFK took several steps in reducing the number US soldiers in Vietnam and planned to ultimately achieve a complete withdrawal. Recordings of Defense Secretary McNamara and Vice-President Lyndon Johnson both have accounts of JFK wanting to pull out of Vietnam after his reelection in 1964 (they were both against it).
Kennedy reinforced his stance for peace on June 10, 1963, when he delivered an important speech at American University:
To discuss a topic on which too often ignorance abounds and the truth is too rarely perceived—yet it is the most important topic on earth: world peace … I speak of peace because of the new face of war…in an age when a singular nuclear weapon contains ten times the explosive force delivered by all the allied forces in the Second World War … an age when the deadly poisons produced by a nuclear exchange would be carried by wind and air and soil and seed to the far corners of the globe and to generations yet unborn … I speak of peace, therefore, as the necessary rational end of rational men … world peace, like community peace, does not require that each man love his neighbor—it requires only that they live together in mutual tolerance … our problems are man-made—therefore they can be solved by man. And man can be as big as he wants.
About a month before his assassination, JFK signed the National Security Action Memorandum (NSAM) 263 ordering the withdrawal of 1,000 military personnel from Vietnam by the end of the year. However, on November 26, 1963, only four days after Kennedy’s death, Lyndon Johnson passed NSAM 273 which reversed the withdrawal and reinforced U.S. commitment in Vietnam.

Against Big Oil?

Ever since the days of Rockefeller’s Standard Oil, big oil companies have enjoyed great privileges and influence in the United States. For example, since 1926, oil companies benefit from large tax concessions, including the oil depletion allowance, which allows them to keep 27.5 percent of their revenue tax-free.
In 1963, President Kennedy proposed removing the oil depletion allowance, the main tax incentive for oil companies. Estimates showed that it would have cost Texas oilmen $300 million in profits each year. He also passed the Kennedy Act, a piece of legislation that especially pinched oil companies, which would have caused them to give up 15 percent of their profits on foreign investments.
After Kennedy’s death, his successor Lyndon Johnson, who was extremely close with Texas oil companies, completely abandoned these plans.

In Conclusion

Although it is easy to either deify or vilify JFK, the truth is that he was merely a man who was a product of his environment – the occult elite. As a member of this rarefied group, he mixed with the dark side of Hollywood and got involved with the horrendous world of MK slaves and handlers.
However, on a professional level, Kennedy went against the best interests of the elite on several occasions by attempting to go against the CIA, the Federal Reserve, the military-industrial complex, and big oil companies. Indeed, Kennedy took bold steps towards limiting the powers of organizations who act in total secrecy and who give absolutely no accounts of their actions to the public. He went against the shadow government which works in the dark and, soon after, he was assassinated in broad daylight. Fifty years later, the official theory is that a lone gunman killed Kennedy. Is that plausible? In the decades that followed, the dreaded Kennedy curse continued, decimating the most prominent members of the family. Was the Kennedy dynasty shunned from the occult elite?
The last part of the series will look at JFK’s assassination, its occult meaning, and the fate of the rest of the Kennedy dynasty. Stay tuned.

The Charge of the Light Brigade

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the few hundred.

"Forward, the Light Brigade!
"Charge for the guns!" he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the few hundred.

"Forward, the Light Brigade!"
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Someone had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the few hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Missile in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
Rode the few hundred.

Flash'd all their sabres bare,
Flash'd as they turn'd in air,
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wonder'd:
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right thro' the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reel'd from the sabre stroke
Shatter'd and sunder'd.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the few hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Missile behind them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro' the jaws of Death
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of few hundred.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honour the charge they made,
Honour the Light Brigade,
Noble few hundred.

We borrow the words from the epic poem from another long past war in the Crimea. A strategic piece of land with great significance. This aircraft was led to its demise in a well orchestrated feint. Flight MH17 was tracking the well adapted air corridor just used by 10 previous flights. Then for reasons unknown it was diverted north to fly directly into rebel controlled territory. The rebels were armed with the latest Russian surface to air missiles. The plane received an escort of two Ukrainian fighter jets. There was mostly no option for non compliance. The fighters would come with the message follow us or else. The plane was effectively under arrest.

As the aircraft got to within range of the rebel missile battery, both fighter jets immediately peeled off. The Malaysian flight was under the control of Ukrainian air traffic control flying their determined course. The rebels would have been expecting Ukrainian military aircraft to approach. The conflict zone was a no fly zone for civilian aircraft. The presence of fighter jets would only confirm that supposition. They fired. The Malaysian aircraft was struck. It exploded and crashed with total loss of life. That seems to be the best evidence to this point. Immediately the spin doctors got to work and turned the issue into an international propaganda operation of the greatest magnitude. The western NATO faction had to have a villain in Russia. This provided a perfect variation on the classic false flag theme. However, the Ukrainians made a serious error in their subterfuge. The video evidence they provided was time, date stamped the previous day. This was a well planned operation with poor technical understanding of the forensic evidence. It gets better or worse as your opinion manifests. There was a Spanish air traffic controller present. He tweeted what he saw to the world until his station was raided and communication equipment seized. His twitter account was also immediately suspended. The rebels couldn't do that. The list of suspects narrows.

Launch site? The BUK missile system photographed in Torez hours before MH17 was downed

Intelligence agency dominated corporate media had all their stories straight within minutes of the event. There were reports that Kiev knew and Russia reported the incident mere moments before the actual event. This has all the hallmarks of a global street theater production. It gets much more complex with every passing piece of evidence that is displayed. I started getting suspicious with one of the first photos I saw in the press yesterday morning. It was a collection of passports. The BUK missile launcher fires a very substantial weapon with a 70 kg. high explosive warhead never mind the weight of the actual missile being 3/4's of a ton. That alone would tear the plane to pieces with the impact velocity of Mach 3 or three time the speed of sound. The explosive would ignite the large fuel reserves of the jet. Gravity would add other stresses. The plane would be a sorry burning wreck which it was. The passports are pristine. I would  suspect most people would carry their passports on their person or very close in the overhead.

The paper is neither burned or wet from the fuel or fire fighting foam. They appear to be miracle passports planted at the scene of the crime. Other more damaging evidence was planted at the scene of the crime too. It was bodies. I participated in disaster drill training in my early years. Our local scenario was our international airport that had a major jet crash with total loss of life. I've seen what happens to the human body under such stresses. Virtually every body losses limbs. In that crash only one retained a head. Torsos are shredded with impacts of various materials from explosive decompression, impact and in the recent case explosives. Bodies can be expected to assemble in dozens of small bags. Most of the these pieces are completely unrecognizable. We have set the stage for the next miracle of the crash intact and relatively undamaged bodies.

A view of the crash site on the local news. At the center right are two bodies in proximity.

In this closeup we see they are relatively undamaged. The arms and legs and heads appear attached. There are no burns. There does not appear to be any sign of explosive trauma. The clothes are also exhibiting little damage conducive to a plane crash, fire and explosion. Then comes the claim from rebel leader Igor Girkin that the bodies they found were deceased for several days and had been drained of blood prior to the crash. From the look of the above photograph I would suspect they were actually placed at the scene.

There almost appear to be two distinct crash sites or more likely scenarios. The above image shows the impact crater as the burning wreckage carved a wedge into the ground. It fits the evidence we have been given with regard to a shoot down incident. The plane was engulfed by fire and a constructive total loss. Of course some pieces would have separated and fallen without burning, but the existence of two entirely different debris fields raises other questions. The most egregious would be what if this was a two for one special?Missing Malaysian flight MH370 was the same type of aircraft with the same identification characteristics. Was it disposed of here as well? Its disappearance was a well crafted intelligence rendition. It is still the 'hottest' stolen plane on the planet. A mutually assured destruction would bury the plane forever.

Oil fields under the path of Flight MH370

Like most high end black ops there are always numerous ends tied into one event. There was the primary mass media assault on Vladimir Putin and the Russians being personified as EVIL to justify actions by the western banking syndicates and their vassal governments. The Russians walked right into that one by firing without properly identifying their target. The next major aspect of the hit was to take care of business as the gangsters used to call it and eliminate the distinguished panel of AIDS experts travelling to Australia for a major international conference in Melbourne. It was the 17th anniversary of a previous crash of TWA 800 also carrying Rodolphe Merieux, 27, son of the president of the pharmaceutical company Merieux Laboratories in Lyons, France which pioneered AIDS research. It was shot down. Years of denial covered up the murders. Numerous French Intelligence officers were on the flight as well.

Entrepreneur: Fatima Dyczynski, the founder of data company Xoterra Space, is thought to have been on board. Her parents are believed to be Australian

Flight MH17 had a relative from Flight MH370 on board as well. There was a British helicopter pilot returning from training in the Netherlands. He was based in Malaysia and flew to oil rigs for Shell/Petronas. Of course one of the first witnesses reporting the 'crash' of Flight MH370 worked on an oil rig. Another prominent candidate would be the CEO of a space systems company that did satellite analysis. Dead women as well as men tell no tales. A Dutch Senator was aboard as well. Over the coming days more and more details of the victims will come to light. However, the presence of previously deceased bodies at the crash site imply another extraordinary rendition flight. The worst case scenario is like the plane there was the two for one special where bothersome bodies from the previous Flight MH370 were no longer kept on 'ice,' but eliminated.

The Malaysian Airlines MH17 Crash: Financial Warfare against Russia, Multibillion Dollar Bonanza for Wall Street

While the mainstream media casually accuses Moscow without evidence of having orchestrated the shoot down of Malaysian Airlines MH17 in liaison with the Donesk rebels, the backlash of the crisis on international financial markets and on Russia’s financial system has passed virtually unnoticed.
Moreover, the political threats and insinuations directed against the Russian Federation in the wake of the July 17 disaster, have been coupled with a renewed wave of economic sanctions directed against major Russian corporations and financial institutions.
Inside Information and Foreknowledge
The conduct of speculative operations both prior and in the wake of the July 17 crash, is also a major consideration: In the functioning of World financial markets, terror events, natural disasters as well as major tragedies such as MH17 will invariably have an impact on the short term behavior of financial markets including major stock markets, the foreign exchange market as well the energy and commodities markets.
It should be noted that foreknowledge of a terror event such as the MH17 crash of July 17 over Eastern Ukraine’s warzone, offers an opportunity to the perpetrators as well as those who have advanced knowledge of the terror event to conduct profitable speculative transactions on various financial markets. Cui bono? Wall Street or Moscow’s Financial Establishment?
In other words, those who planned the attack on MH17 (including their political and economic sponsors) had in their possession valuable and confidential information which could be used in large scale speculative undertakings, including options trade on the DJIA, the Moscow Stock exchange (MICEX), foreign exchange markets, not to mention speculative trade (e.g. put options) on airline stocks.
What is described above is routine in the frequent conduct of “risk free” speculative trade by major financial institutions.
Major financial actors who had foreknowledge of the MH17 event of July 17 would have made billions of windfall gains in speculative transactions. With foreknowledge of the crash, institutional speculators would be in a position to accurately “predict” the short term decline of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and other major stock markets, commodity and forex indexes and act accordingly, placing speculative bets through the use of different financial instruments.
Moreover, there is also an overlap between Wall Street and the corporate financial media: Timely news releases by Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, etc. in the wake of a major international event often exert a decisive influence on the actual movement of major financial indicators. At the same time, these powerful financial media –which influence investors’ perceptions regarding future market trends– overlap symbiotically with partner interests on Wall Street which are directly involved in undertaking major transactions. In fact, the corporate financial media are invariably major actors on Wall Street or the City of London. Who are the major shareholders of the WSJ, the Financial Times or the Economist? Is there a conflict of interest?
The New York Stock Exchange
In the wake of the July 17 crash of MH17, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) declined from its 17150 peak and subsequently bounced back (see chart below). Foreknowledge of the MH17 would have allowed the reaping of financial gains on the short term movement of the Dow from one day to the next.
Table 1 Down Jones Industrial Average (DJIA)

The London Stock Market on July 17
While the NYSE was open on the 17th after the disaster over Ukraine, the London Market Stock opened up on Friday the 18th and experienced a short term slump in market values, rebounding at the end of trade on the 18th.
  London Stock Exchange FTSE  All Share Index

The Moscow Stock Exchange
The tragic event of July 17, coupled with immediate accusations directed against Russia, contributed to precipitating the tumble of the Moscow stock exchange (see chart below).
While European stock markets were also affected, the most dramatic decline was recorded on the Moscow Stock Exchange, with Moscow’s MICEX index falling by 2.3 per cent in one day and its dollar-traded related index, the RTS index, dropping by 3.8 per cent. (Reuters, July 18, 2014) (see chart below)
Those who had advanced knowledge of the MH17 crash and the likely accusations directed against Russia by president Obama would no doubt have placed their bets on a decline of both the MICEX and the Russian ruble.

The Sanctions Regime
The economic sanctions regime initiated by the Obama administration had targeted the Russia’s arms industry, its major energy giants including state owned Gazprom and Rosneft as well as the privately owned gas conglomerate Novatek. Major Russian financial institutions were also the object of sanctions.
In a bitter irony, late Wednesday July 16th (ET), one day before the MH17 tragedy, the Obama administration announced a new set of sweeping sanctions directed against the Russian Federation:
[L]ate Wednesday [July 16, 2014] , President Barack Obama had announced fresh sanctions targeting Russia’s large-cap companies that included bellwether energy and banking companies.  …  “We have to see concrete actions, and not just words that Russia in fact is committed to trying to end this conflict along the Russia-Ukraine border,” Obama stated at the White House after announcing fresh sanctions on Russia’s large-caps. (MH17 Crash, Fresh US Sanctions: Beware of Funds with Russia Exposure, Zaks, July 18, 2014
It is worth noting that Rosneft has a gas deal with Exxon Mobil. The endgame of the sanctions regime is economic conquest, namely to weaken Russia’s energy giants with a view to ultimately modifying their ownership structure:
That the United States went for such a big company [i.e. sanctions] shows that it means business. Rosneft has outstanding debts of about $70 billion, close to its market capitalization, forcing it to seek persistent refinancing — and, leaving aside some Russian and Chinese financing, only the international dollar markets can provide sufficient financing.
Rosneft will have to reduce its capital expenditures because of the U.S. sanctions.” (Anders Aslund, U.S. responded to MH17 before airliner was shot down, Sanctions imposed after Russia delivered arms that brought down plane, Market Watch, July 18, 2014)
Following Obama’s timely announcement on the 16th of July, confirming a new wave of sanctions, the decline of stock values on Moscow’s Stock Exchange started at the opening of trade on July 17th prior to the crash of MH17.
Currency Markets: Decline of the Ruble
Currency markets were also affected. While the event did not precipitate a significant decline of the Malaysian ringgit, the Russian ruble fell by 1.8 per cent against the US dollar, its biggest one-day decline since June 2013. (Reuters, July 18, 2014). In the wake of the July 17 crash in Ukraine, the Russian ruble has continued to decline (see chart below).
Ongoing threats pertaining to Russia’s alleged role in the downing of MH17 not to mention the implementation of new sanctions against Russia announced on the 16 of July, have resulted in a significant decline of the Russian ruble. It should be understood the Russian central bank to prevent a further decline of the ruble, most probably used its forex reserves to counteract the speculative attack against the Russian ruble, leading to a significant capital outflow of  Russia’s dollar reserves.
Table 3  Russian Ruble (RUB) US Dollar Exchange Rate (June 21,  2014 – July 21, 2014) 
Decline in Airline Stocks

There was a significant decline in airline stock values quoted on NASDAQ on July 17th following the crash of MH17 (see chart below) characterized by a dip on the 17th and a recovery on the 18th. Those who had foreknowledge of the MH17 crash could have placed safe speculative bets reaping substantial profits.
As outlined at our introduction the issue of foreknowledge is of crucial significance. By definition the criminal perpetrators of the MH17 crash had foreknowledge which could have been used by partner financial  entities involved in speculative trade. This particular dimension of MH17 foreknowledge –reminiscent of the short selling of airline stock in the days preceding 9/11–requires further analysis and investigation. It should be a component of the criminal investigation into the July 17 crash itself.

The Fate of Malaysian Airlines
With the mysterious disappearance of MH370 in March, the number of MH passengers had dropped by 60 per cent. Malaysian Airline System’s (MAS) financial situation had become increasingly fragile.
Following the MH17 crash, Malaysian Airlines System is up for complete privatization. “MAS is almost 70 per cent owned by the government investment vehicle Kazanah Nasional, which earlier this year expressed interest in offloading part of its holding.” (ABC New Australia, July 21, 2014)
The annual decline in MAS stock is of the order of 25.8 (see chart below)
