Why Are Banking Executives In London Killing Themselves?

The Economic Collapse


By Michael Snyder, on January 28th, 2014

JPMorgan Tower In London - Photo by Danesman1Bankers committing suicide by jumping from the rooftops of their own banks is something that we think of when we think of the Great Depression.  Well, it just happened in London, England.  A vice president at JPMorgan's European headquarters in London plunged to his death after jumping from the top of the 33rd floor.  He fell more than 500 feet, and it is being reported by an eyewitness that "there was quite a lot of blood".  This comes on the heels of news that a former Deutsche Bank executive was found hanged in his home in London on Sunday.  So why is this happening?  Yes, the markets have gone down a little bit recently but they certainly have not crashed yet.  Could there be more to these deaths than meets the eye?  You never know.  And as I will discuss below, there have been a lot of other really strange things happening around the world lately as well.
But before we get to any of that, let's take a closer look at some of these banker deaths.  The JPMorgan executive that jumped to his death on Tuesday was named Gabriel Magee.  He was 39 years old, and his suicide has the city of London in shock...
A bank executive who died after jumping 500ft from the top of JP Morgan's European headquarters in London this morning has been named as Gabriel Magee.
The American senior manager, 39, fell from the 33-story skyscraper and was found on the ninth floor roof, which surrounds the Canary Wharf skyscraper.
He was a vice president in the corporate and investment bank technology department having joined in 2004, moving to Britain from the United States in 2007.
What would cause a man in his prime working years who is making huge amounts of money to do something like that?

The death on Sunday of former Deutsche Bank executive Bill Broeksmit is also a mystery.  According to the Daily Mail, police consider his death to be "non-suspicious", which means that they believe that it was a suicide and not a murder...
A former Deutsche Bank executive has been found dead at a house in London, it emerged today.
The body of William ‘Bill’ Broeksmit, 58, was discovered at his home in South Kensington on Sunday shortly after midday by police, who had been called to reports of a man found hanging at a house.
Mr Broeksmit - who retired last February - was a former senior manager with close ties to co-chief executive Anshu Jain. Metropolitan Police officers said his death was declared as non-suspicious.
On top of that, Business Insider is reporting that a communications director at another bank in London was found dead last week...
Last week, a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG died last week. The cause of death has not been made public.
Perhaps it is just a coincidence that these deaths have all come so close to one another.  After all, people die all the time.

And London is rather dreary this time of the year.  It is easy for people to get depressed if they are not accustomed to endless gloomy weather.

If the stock market was already crashing, it would be easy to blame the suicides on that.  The world certainly remembers what happened during the crash of 1929...
Historically, bankers have been stereotyped as the most likely to commit suicide. This has a lot to do with the famous 1929 stock market crash, which resulted in 1,616 banks failing and more than 20,000 businesses going bankrupt. The number of bankers committing suicide directly after the crash is thought to have been only around 20, with another 100 people connected to the financial industry dying at their own hand within the year.
But the market isn't crashing just yet.  We definitely appear to be at a "turning point", but things are still at least somewhat stable.

So why are bankers killing themselves?

That is a good question.

As I mentioned above, there have also been quite a few other strange things that have happened lately that seem to be "out of place".

For example, Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report posted the following cryptic message on Twitter the other day...
"Have an exit plan..."
What in the world does he mean by that?

Maybe that is just a case of Drudge being Drudge.

Then again, maybe not.

And on Tuesday we learned that a prominent Russian Bank has banned all cash withdrawals until next week...
Bloomberg reports that 'My Bank' - one of Russia's top 200 lenders by assets - has introduced a complete ban on cash withdrawals until next week. While the Ruble has been losing ground rapidly recently, we suspect few have been expecting bank runs in Russia.
Yes, we have heard some reports of people having difficulty getting money out of their banks around the world lately, but this news out of Russia really surprised me.

Yet another story that seemed rather odd was a report in the Wall Street Journal earlier this week that stated that Germany's central bank is advocating "a one-time wealth tax" for European nations that need a bailout...
Germany's central bank Monday proposed a one-time wealth tax as an option for euro-zone countries facing bankruptcy, reviving a idea that has circled for years in Europe but has so far gained little traction.
Why would they be suggesting such a thing if "economic recovery" was just around the corner?
According to that same article, the IMF has recommended a similar thing...
The International Monetary Fund in October also floated the idea of a one-time "capital levy," amid a sharp deterioration of public finances in many countries. A 10% tax would bring the debt levels of a sample of 15 euro-zone member countries back to pre-crisis levels of 2007, the IMF said.
So what does all of this mean?

I am not exactly sure, but I have got a bad feeling about this - especially considering the financial chaos that we are witnessing in emerging markets all over the globe right now.

Government Experiments Reveal Humans Are Capable Of Bending Physical Objects With Their Mind

Collective Evolution
by .

matrixIf you told a random person that psychic phenomena like psychokinesis (or PK) has been proven in a number of laboratories all over the planet for a number of years, they would probably look at you like you’re crazy. Phenomena that fall within this category aren’t really emphasized within the realm of traditional education, it is however heavily studied by scientists working at the highest levels of government.

One particular example was the work of professional aerospace engineer and physicist Jack Houck, along with Army Colonel J.B. Alexander. They were responsible for holding a number of PK sessions, where attendees were taught the PK induction process and how to initiate their own PK events using various metal specimens (forks, spoons, etc.). Individuals were able to completely bend or contort their metal specimens with no physical force being applied whatsoever.(1)(2)

These events were held for numerous government science advisors and senior military officials. They took place at the Pentagon, at officers’ and scientists’ homes, and at U.S. Army Intelligence & Security Command locations all over the world. (1) Commanding generals, colonels and more were always in attendance. (1) What was witnessed by all was spontaneous deformation of metal specimens, which caused “a great deal of excitement” amongst those present.(1)

High ranking military personnel were not the only ones in attendance, other trained observers were also involved. One notable was Psychic Uri Geller, who during a talk that he gave at the U.S. Capitol building caused a spoon to curve upward with no force applied, the spoon then continued to bend after he put it back down and resumed speaking. (1)

The experiments with Aerospace engineer and physicist Jack Houck, along with Army Colonel J.B. Alexander used what they call PK parties, in which over 85 percent of attendees learned how to bend metal and plastic, proving that we all have these capabilities. (2) In order to give some scientific credibility to an observed phenomenon that is hardly understood, electron microscopic pictures were used  to try to explain what is going on inside of the metal, from a scientific point of view.

“An explanation is presented on how the mind makes a connection with the intended area to be bent, somehow “ignites” the dislocations such that they release thermal energy. This heating occurs along the grain boundaries of the metal, making it easily deformable, liquid or even gaseous. The heat is then transferred out through the metal which can then be sensed by the individual either as stickiness or warmth. The period of time in which the metal is in this easily malleable state is between a few seconds and about 30 seconds. The key is to find that time window when the metal is easily malleable. This time window can occur anywhere between a few seconds and many hours or more after the initial bending attempt. The secret to making the time at which this window occurs is to be as close to the immediate time as possible is the amount of excitement and intent that is generated at the time of the initial attempt”  (2)

PK experiments and data collection were also conducted by Robert Jahn, who was the Dean Emeritus of the School of Engineering Anomalies Research Laboratory at Princeton University. He repeatedly demonstrated and cited consistent results in mentally affecting material substances.(1)

The list goes on and on, including another series of rigorously controlled and repeatable laboratory experiments that occurred in China. In September 1981, a paper was published in the journal Ziran Zazhi (Nature Journal) titled “Some Experiments On The Transfer of Objects Performed by Unusual Abilities of the Human Body.” (1) In this experiment, it was reported that gifted children were able to cause the apparent teleportation of small objects like watches, horse flies, insects, radio micro-transmitters and more from one location to another without them ever touching the objects beforehand. The experiments were conducted under well controlled conditions, both blind and double-blind. Researchers involved in this experiment included observers from various colleges and medical research institutes, as well as representatives from the National Defense Science Commission of China(military). (1)

How These Findings Have Been Used.
We know that these are Special Access Programs. (1) The ones mentioned in these studies have been unclassified, but even today nobody has any idea of what has happened because these programs are unacknowledged. Which means that they do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘deep black programs,’ a 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.” You can read more about that and the black budget here.

Above, I have presented verifiable occurrences that actually happened, as far as how these findings have been used is another story, and you can bet that information like that will not be declassified anytime in the near future. For these questions we have to rely upon stories and hearsay, and correlate them with the documented data that’s available in the public domain.

In my research, I’ve come across stories of children who have been trained in these applications from a very young age, and then used in various military experiments and past wars, like the Vietnam war. I wouldn’t be surprised is these are/were a part of the Mk Ultra program, which was an extension of Project Paper Clip, but these programs encompass a variety of things. I would also not be surprised if individuals capable of such extended human capacities are sought after by the military industrial complex.

The fact that military agencies (amongst others) have been studying and observing these phenomenon for decades lends belief to the idea that findings within this realm have been explored and used numerous times.

From everything that I’ve looked at, I believe that many children from a very young age are trained and used by various agencies all over the world for various projects and experiments to find out more. I believe some of them have been used in “super soldier” programs that we really know nothing about.

Phenomena within these realms are always used for the wrong reasons. Imagine if we lived on a planet with total transparency in regards to all science and discovery. Imagine if PK phenomenon was one aspect we taught our children from a young age.

Personally, I don’t think the human race is ready for this. Maybe when we evolve into a completely peaceful race, these applications might be acceptable to learn. Perhaps there are extraterrestrial races out there that are taught these concepts from an early age, who knows.  The fact remains, extended human capacities are indeed real, but they are of no use to anybody unless they stem from a place of peace and love. portrayed in the movies is a different story.


MTV Show “Teen Mom 2″ Will Show Young Woman’s Abortion

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | | 1/16/14

Pro-life people have frequently said that if an abortion is ever shown on television that it would change millions of minds against abortion. Now, MTV is doing just that: filming one of its reality show stars having an abortion.

With MTV at the helm, the abortion will likely be sanitized and shown as nothing more than a routine medical procedure — which will make it less likely to have much of an impact on abortion attitude or opinion. Further complicating the issue is the fact that Teen Mom 2′s trouble-plagued star Jenelle Evans is defending her decision to have an abortion. That sets up what will likely be a pro-abortion spin on what could be an opportunity to talk about how abortion kills unborn children and hurts women.

The teen mother in this case is 22-years-old and she tells The Stir she has no regret about her abortion — yet.

On how MTV came to film the abortion:
MTV was like, “Do you want to film it?” And I said, “Yeah.” They said, “Are you sure,” and I said, “Yes.”

They’re like, “OK, you know a lot of backlash is going to come from this.” I’m like, “Yeah, I know. It’s OK.”

On choosing abortion:
At the time, when I filmed it and everything, I didn’t know I was going to meet Nathan or have a baby or anything like that. You don’t know what the future’s going to hold.

At the time I needed to do what I needed to do. I wasn’t in the best situation. I was living back at my mom’s, just got arrested for a felony charge, and I mean, I was in such a depressed state. It was just … my body was so out of whack. I was sick, so I went to the doctor for bronchitis, and that’s when they told me I was pregnant.

I just couldn’t be with Courtland Rogers because he was abusive. He’s not a good father figure. He has a child already and he’s not involved in their life.

On her regrets:
I don’t regret the abortion. I think I’m prepared for the backlash. I just don’t want people judging me off the abortion for this new pregnancy. I want them to understand why I did it and where I was at and where I am now and how much better I am now and that it’s OK to have a baby now.

Evens says she will eventually tell her son Jace that she decided to abort his brother or sister. Research shows siblings of people killed in abortions face depression and mental health issue of their own.

Robots to Breed with Each Other and Humans by 2045

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Cybernetics experts say it's possible for robots to breed with each other, and with humans, by 2045.

Nicholas West
Activist Post

The magical transhumanist date of 2045 holds many predictions for how man will attain his final merger with computer systems and usher in an age of "spiritual" machines. Ray Kurzweil has issued a bevy of likely scenarios in his book The Singularity is Near, and continues to suggest that much of those predictions could arrive much sooner. Others have pointed strictly to the economic impact and have marked 2045 has the date when humans could be completely outsourced to robotic workers.

Now cybernetic experts are pointing to the trends in robotics, artificial intelligence, and 3D printing to suggest that the "merger" could go beyond the establishment of an era of cyborgs and into a very literal one: sex with robots.

There has been an ongoing move to create humanoid robots that can more than simply mimic human ability and behavior. Attention is being paid to the social aspect as well. But what is now being proposed has even more serious ethical and existential implications, and very well could bring about the concept of a true "master race."

The other day there was the announcement that researchers are developing a "Wikipedia for Robots" that enables robots to learn from a cloud-based Internet sharing system ... designed only for them. When this concept fully takes shape, it will resemble a social structure that is decidedly human - our ability to learn from one another in order to become more efficient and intelligent.

This advance toward not only autonomous decision making for robots, but a type of autonomous evolution must make us question the next step: what happens if this experiment takes on a life of its own?

George Zarkadakis is an artificial intelligence engineer who believes that robots will move toward procreation rather quickly as they will wish to produce superior offspring. With the rapid advances made in the realm of 3D printing, they would likely begin by printing out their progeny, or perhaps would breed at the molecular level through their silicon and carbon make-up. Others experts such as Professor Noel Sharkey from England's Sheffield University point to the same concept as the "Wikipedia for Robots" - through a simple software swap, new intelligence could be created, as well as the likelihood of other upgrades like virus protection. Incidentally, the organic component of this is also being researched by geneticists as downloadable DNA via our own human Internet.

This all does begin to sound quite human, as we naturally wish that our own children become healthier, more intelligent and longer-lived versions of ourselves. But if these human "desires" manifesting among robots doesn't seem worrisome enough, then what about robot sex with humans? It can't be dismissed outright.

There is a parallel ongoing mission to further develop an emotional connection between robots and humans. For example, how many of us feel that our computational devices are now integral to our social lives and work? I would be dishonest to say that the computer on which I'm typing these words and communicating with other individuals is not an essential part of my life ... and I love having that ability. However, what about real love? The love we have toward family, friends, and the intimacy with partners or spouses? This is where the slope begins to get slippery.

As robots begin to take on an increasing range of human functions, their humanoid (as opposed to only computational) forms are becoming more present in our lives. This is beginning in the area of caregiving in hospitals and particularly with the elderly, as researchers suggest that a "greying population" will need the extra support. We also see robots entering the following "intimate" areas:
A recent study conducted by German researchers from the International Communication Association also made some revealing discoveries within a group of participants that hint at humans' theoretical fondness for robots.

One study had 14 participants watch videos that showed a human, a robot and an inanimate object, being treated in either an affectionate or in a violent way. Researchers found that people displayed similar neural activation patterns for affection across the spectrum, indicating the potential for an empathetic reaction toward a non-human. It becomes interesting to note, then, when we return to the vocation list above that the areas most often cited for human replacement in favor of robotic "assistance" are the very vocations that would seem to require the most empathy.

So then we take it one step further. Would humans really want to have sex with robots and, if so, would they be willing to create a hybrid species? If we go beyond the merely prurient area of mechanical sex devices, and look at the possibility for a genuine emotional relationship, it seems that such an interest is developing. Here is one philosophical interpretation of how this interest could manifest toward the final stage:
Robots won't merely attenuate the need for human intimacy and thus the use of love for instrumental purposes. They also seem to have attractions as companions in their own right. So far the most sophisticated social robots are those developed to ease the loneliness of the elderly . . . At least some people find these companion robots more attractive than humans: they are more straightforward to relate to and less demanding than ordinary ornery humans. But it seems to me that even in the most intimate sphere, and for mentally and physically healthy individuals in the prime of life, robots may eventually become more attractive than humans as companions.
 . . . I think the key innovation of robot lovers will be in pretending. Specifically, robots will be designed so as to allow their human owners to pretend that they are loved. And everyone wants to be loved. 
Physically, this would require robots to look enough like a person (not even a very perfect replica) for humans to relate to. Cognitively - or rather "algorithmically" - this would require robots to simulate the perfect lover - that is, the perfect worshipper. This lover asks you about your day in a voice that suggests they actually want to hear about it. It agrees with you about what a bitch your boss is, and remembers that mean thing she did last year too! It remembers your birthday, but also all the things you like and don't like. It cooks wonderful things, and doesn't complain when you get fat. It never has a headache. And so on. Basically, it's a Stepford wife. (Source)
Whether or not this is a sad commentary about one person's take on what meaningful connection entails, this type of interest does not (yet) appear to have the widespread acceptance that it would take to become reality - in a physical or social sense.

But, as noted by Professor Kevin Warwick from the Institution of Engineering and Technology in an interview with MailOnline,
‘just about anything is possible’ and . . . there are already robots with biological brains that mix biological and technological parts. 
‘This is not science fiction,’ he said. 
He believes that robots capable of breeding with each other could be produced using current research and technologies but it will likely take 20 to 30 years before they could be used on Earth – and there are questions to be asked about whether this is a good idea.
research into creating cyborgs as a result of ‘breeding’ with robots, and creating robots that breed with each other, depends on social acceptance, Professor Warwick said. 
‘Over the next 20 to 30 years the question will be on the table and we have to face ethical issues.’
Nevertheless, before this final stage of acceptance, robots will presumably have been breeding with one another first and quickly evolving. The possible outcome of what that collective evolution will bring is, frighteningly, anybody's guess. The above scenario discussed by these experts does, after all, presume that the production of a hybrid species between humans and robots will be a consensual decision.

Inside the 'portal to hell': Relative gives investigators tour of haunted Indiana home where 'possessed' children were 'chanting satanically' and saw 'ugly, black monster'

  • MailOnline has obtained exclusive audio and video footage from the exorcisms of Latoya Ammons
  • She who was 'possessed' along with her three children after moving into home in Gary, Indiana, in 2011
  • Video shows police, utterly convinced case is real, being given a tour by Latoya's mother
  • She claims children were 'satanic chanting' and saw 'big, black monster'
  • Police audio also features a 'demon' rasping 'hey' in the basement
  • Sons were taken to hospital after one was inexplicably thrown in the house - while there a nurse and a CPS worker saw him 'glide' backwards up a wall
  • Town's veteran police chief, Charles Austin, says basement is 'portal to hell' and he saw objects moving and shadowy people
  • He even claims he was 'attacked' away from the house by spirits
  • MailOnline also has obtained picture of 'frozen' finger of DCS worker who touched mystery ooze that was dripping in house. She never returned
  • Catholic priest Father Michael Maginot carried out exorcisms on Ammons in English and Latin and talks of his personal battles with named demons
By Laura Collins In Merrillville, Indiana

The footage is shaky as the camera pans to and fro moving from room to room – each in a state of disarray, left in haste - before descending into the basement.
The cellar is lit by naked bulbs. With bare walls and concrete floor it looks cold even on film and is all but abandoned, except for a small table covered in a cloth.
An open Bible and burned out vestige candle sit on it. Salt is scattered on the concrete floor – a desperate ritualistic attempt to rid this place of evil.

Portal to Hell: Rose Campbell, Latoya's mother, gives police a tour of the basement that was said to be the base of the demons that possessed the family

Be gone! The family, under instruction of a priest and clairvoyants, set up an altar in the basement and surrounded it in salt in a bid to banish the evil spirits

 Evil: Rose Simmons claimed 'something down there was choking me to death, I don’t know what it is' because she went into the basement praying

Seen here for the first time, this is video footage from the Gary, Indiana police investigation into a case that is, without question, the most bizarre and disturbing in their history: the possession and exorcism of Latoya Ammons.

Throughout the hour-long film officers hear testimony of children picked up and flung against walls and furniture; of adults being ‘choked to death’ by some supernatural force; of a demonic form appearing in different shapes – the shadow of a man, a black looming monster; an apparition of a withered old lady with red eyes and hood; of a house that bled clear, odorless oil and of the household’s three children convulsing and chanting Satanic verses.

In a chilling aside, in a separate audio recording made by one of the officers as he took pictures while his colleague filmed – audible here exclusively at MailOnline – the two officers’ speech is cut across by a whispered, but clear, ‘Hey.’ Neither said or heard it at the time.

Both are now convinced it is a demonic rasp, issuing a welcome or a challenge as they stood unwittingly on the lip of a ‘portal to hell.’

At one point, Latoya Ammons’s mother, Rose Campbell, who acted as ‘paranormal tour guide’ to the officers drawn from Gary, Lake County and Hammond Police Departments, admitted saying to her daughter: ‘Nobody’s going to believe this, Toya.’

Certainly few involved in the case wanted to when it began in early spring 2012. But today, the veteran police officers, experienced physicians, paramedics, nurses, social workers and clergy linked to the case speak of being ‘attacked’ by demons, profoundly shaken and left with little choice but to believe that ‘something’ possessed the 32-year-old mother-of-three and the rented home in which she, her children and her mother, lived from November 2011 until May 2012.

Fears: Ammons, pictured, said she saw her daughter levitating in a bedroom. A nurse and a CPS worker later reported seeing her nine-year-old son run backwards up a wall before flipping over to the ground

As she showed the investigating officers, accompanied by social worker Valerie Washington, around the home in May 2012, Rose repeatedly stopped to recall the events which had, by that time, driven the family from the residence.
Standing in the kitchen she claimed: ‘I heard dogs barking, it sounded like there were dogs barking in here.’ The family had no pets. And when she investigated she saw, ‘A shadow of somebody moving.’
Downstairs in the basement, a focus for much of the disturbances, Rose recalled an occasion on which she was down there alone doing some cleaning: ‘I started coughing and joking so bad…I was praying the whole time and they don’t like for us to pray. They don’t like that at all.
‘Something down there was choking me to death, I don’t know what it is.’

 'I was praying the whole time and they don’t like for us to pray. They don’t like that at all. Something down there was choking me to death, I don’t know what it is'                                         - Rose Campbell
On another occasion she said that her daughter, Latoya and godson were in the basement when, according to Rose: ‘He felt like something was stabbing him in the stomach. The more he was was reading the Bible, the more it was stabbing, punching... they saw something flying across the room and land “blam” like that.’
Rose reached for the object she claimed had been flung by some demonic force – a small Holy Family ornament.

She also said that her daughter had told her that, as the force had grown in power she had seen it’s full manifestation in her bedroom one night. ‘She said it was like a scary, ugly, black monster… she couldn’t say anything else.’

Two of them most disturbing physical manifestations were witnessed by several medics and law enforcement officials.

The first, Rose recalled, was during a visit to family physician Dr Geoffrey Onyekum on 19 April 2012. Both focused on the youngest child, then 7. She recalled: ‘I saw “it” trying to come out [of him]. It was trying to break loose in front of the doctor.

‘His head was turning, his eyes rolled back, his mouth went crazy, he started talking in tongues then it threw my grandson completely across the room.’
The nurse who witnessed this would not go back into the room while the doctor, realizing this was well beyond his capabilities, called police and paramedics to take the child and his brother, both of whom fell unconscious, to Gary ER.
When there, and in the grips of demonic possession, his grandmother maintained, her youngest grandson – growling and gurning – walked backwards towards a wall then glided up it, walking backwards to above her head height, holding her hands all the way as she tried to coax him down and ‘it’ out, before flipping over her head and landing on the floor.
The child had no recollection of the event that was witnessed by nurses, social workers and paramedics all of whom recorded it in official reports.
Cary Indiana Police Captain Charles Austin, 62, was there the day the footage seen here was recorded. He entered a skeptic and left convinced that he had just witnessed a ‘portal to hell.’
Speaking to MailOnline he said: ‘Everyone of us who was there that day in the basement and who saw what we saw, went through what we went through after…we all think the same, we all call it the same. That bit of dirt is a portal to hell.

When Capt Austin heard of a bizarre initial report on a Monday afternoon his sergeant told him that Child Protection Services were involved.
Capt Austin, 62, said: ‘The sergeant told me that the children had been missing school and there was talk of satanic goings on. He was very leery of it. I contacted some people, high-ranking officers; we decided to take a look.

Eerie: Cops and child protection workers were also spooked during visits to the home in Gary, Indiana (pictured). In this image, a figure appears in a window, right, although no one was home

‘I walked in there thinking this was nothing but a hoax, a concocted story.’
Instead what he experienced that day in the spring of 2012 shook him to his core, threatened his life and became part of the documented history of one of the most disturbing and baffling cases in Indiana’s police history.
Capt Austin’s assertions were echoed by Roman Catholic priest Father Michael Maginot, also interviewed by MailOnline.
Father Maginot may be a more natural candidate to believe in supernatural phenomenon than a cop of 37 years' standing who prides himself in being an ‘aggressive and assertive law enforcer.’
But, like Capt Austin, he set out to disprove the story. Instead he would conduct one minor and three major exorcisms on mother-of-three Latoya and told MailOnline that he himself had been the target of demonic attack for his involvement in the case.

  'All of a sudden this growling voice came from my AM/FM radio. It said, “YOU OUTTA HERE” Then a lot of garbled other stuff and static'
- Captain Austin
Over a six-month period Latoya claims that she and her children were possessed by demons.
She says that the house in which they lived was ravaged by malevolent spirits, that her daughter, then 12, and sons, 9 and 7 respectively were physically attacked – thrown against furniture, dragged from the sofa, punched and tormented till their gums and noses bled and they struggled to breathe.
As a family she says they fell ill – she to three kidney infections, her children to a variety of ailments and disturbances.
She says the house ‘dripped oil,’ that shadowy figures walked the rooms at night, that footsteps could be heard coming up from the basement only to be followed by a furious pounding on the door leading from it to the main house when, in increasing terror, she and her mother put a lock on it.
There were swarms of dead horseflies on the porch – swept up one day only to return in equal abundance the next. Lights flickered, phones played up, television signals scrambled and reverted to normal on a whim.
  Convinced: After three decades on the force, Gary Police Captain was in no doubt: He told MailOnline: 'Everyone of us who was there that day in the basement and who saw what we saw, went through what we went through after…we all think the same, we all call it the same. That bit of dirt is a portal to hell'

She claims the family was terrorized beyond all endurance. And the impact in school-time lost and medical treatment sought saw the Department of Child Protection Services step in and call in first he police, and finally after one particularly harrowing event, Father Maginot.
Sitting before the fire in the main room of St Stephen the Martyr’s rectory in Merrillville, Indiana, Father Maginot admitted he only became involved by chance. He happened to be covering for the usual chaplain of Gary ER on the weekend when a medic called in some distress to report a bizarre occurrence.
He said: ‘We were having our bible study after mass when I got the call saying “You’re a Catholic priest. You do exorcisms. We need you to do one.” They went onto tell me that a little boy had just walked, glided, backwards up a wall and flipped over to land on his feet.
‘They said he was growling, they described all sorts of things. I went of course.’
Father Maginot speaks rapidly and earnestly. He is affable, open and welcoming but he is no fool. He set out, he insisted, to disprove any notion of the occult. To do an exorcism, permission is needed from the Bishop. Fr Maginot admitted he was reluctant to go down that path having approached Bishop Dale J Melczek, Bishop of Gary some years earlier on another matter involving possible supernatural events only to receive short shrift.
He said: ‘I set out to disprove it because to be honest I didn’t want to get the bishop involved. But I had policemen, social workers, doctors and security guards telling me what they had witnessed.
‘I couldn’t just dismiss them all. That was a Friday. So I met with the mother and grandmother on the Sunday.’
In an involvement with the case spanning five months, Fr Maginot never met or examined any of the children.
But he became convinced, he said, that Latoya was indeed possessed and that the house in which she and her children lived had become cursed as a result of a hex placed on her.
Shaking his head, aware perhaps of how unbelievable the story, he admitted; ‘I think there was a curse placed on the mother, that she was the focus, possibly by an ex-boyfriend or his wife, and that combined with some tragedy and perhaps occult practices that had taken place in that house before and that had opened a portal.’
It is the conclusion Capt Austin has drawn against every logical thought that told him that just could not be true.
Speaking from Gary Police Department Headquarters, he has run every department from narcotics to homicide, gang intelligence to autodetail. He has taught 500 officers and received the department’s highest reward for his service. He doesn’t believe in the sort of ‘garbage’ he thought he was being fed in by the two women at Caroline Street in Gary two springs ago.

AIPAC Senator may face jail for helping gangsters

Senator Menendez under investigation for ties to fugitive bankers

 … by  Press TV,  Tehran

AIPAC has been busy little bees lately
AIPAC has been busy little bees lately
[ Editors Note:  Surprise, surprise...up pops the annoucement of what has had to be a long running investigation, and a sensitive one with a Democratic White house having a criminal investigation of an well known senator.
Are we finally seeing some pay back by Obama for those working with AIPAC to punish him for not towing the AIPAC line on Syria and Iran?
What is not reported in the Press TV piece below is the current corruption inside Congress is not limited to being sock puppets for the the Jewish Lobby crowd.  AIPAC rents out their sock puppets to others to help cover the costs. 
Menenedez seems to have helped two major bank fraud guys, who snagged $660 million, to a soft landing here in the land of opportunity. Menendez's office claims the Isaias brothers were politically persecuted. Isn't that special ?
The drug cartels are major political funders of Congress now, compliments of the Bush era Supreme Court that opened the flood gates for overseas donators...and come they did.  Everybody that needs a favor, like protection from hiding offshore oil company profits, knows where to where to go to get things taken care of.
The senators who sided with AIPAC against Obama to torpedo the Iran nuclear talks are being funding by gambling interests like Sheldon Adelson, and oil barron manipulators like the Koch brothers who have paid out a bundle to keep oil prices way higher than real demand would support.
AIPAC is the traffic cop for a lot of these deals, everything from organ theft, prostitution and a conduit for the cartel money. The Intel community has watched this in horror for years now, thinking that it could not get worse, but it did. That was mostly due to the Lobby folks being able to offer effectively immunity for anybody that played ball with them. It is called political obstruction of justice.

So that is the big mystery question for us. Why Mendendez, and why now...when there were so many to pick from, including Republicans who excel in their own corruption? AIPAC is an equal opportunity employer.
You can bet we will be beating the bushes to find out a little more about this. And I will wager that our esteemed Congress will have looked upon William and Roberto Isaias and their $660 million dollars as a pinata from heaven... Jim W. Dean ]

The Brothers Isaias - Big time bank robbers
The Brothers Isaias – Big time bank robbers, says Ecuador

US Senator Robert Menendez, the key architect of unilateral sanctions against Iran, is under criminal investigation for his connection with two Florida businessmen who are fugitives from Ecuador, a report says.

According to WNBC, the Justice Department is investigating the hawkish senator’s ties to brothers William and Roberto Isaias, who are wanted in Ecuador for embezzlement.

The Isaias brothers, who ran Ecuador’s largest bank, were convicted of embezzling more than $660 million during Ecuador’s banking crisis in 1999. They moved to the US in 2000.

The Department of Justice is investigating whether Menendez, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, intervened with Homeland Security and the State Department to help the duo escape extradition, the report said.

The office of Sen. Menendez has denied the report.
“Our office works each year with literally hundreds of individuals and families from across the country who are seeking help with the immigration process,” Menendez’s communications director Tricia Enright told the Hill in an email. “We review each and every request we receive, and if we feel any inquiry is appropriate, we make it.”
“In this particular case, Senator Menendez believed the Isaias family had been politically persecuted in Ecuador, including through the confiscation of media outlets they owned which were critical of the government. We are not aware of any inquiry into the Senator’s actions on this matter.”
The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics (CREW), a watchdog group in Washington, has put Sen. Menendez on the list of 13 most corrupt members of Congress. The watchdog put Menendez on the list last year because of accusations that he did favors for a friend and campaign donor, Salomon Melgen, and accepted rides on his private plane without disclosing them.
[ Editors Note:  Sal Melgen is no slouch. He has had his offices searched twice over an $8 million Medicare 'billing dispute'. And being a generous soul, he donated $700,000 to a super PAC affiliated with House Speaker Harry Reid, where Menendez got most of the money. Isn't that special? Welcome to the best Congress that money can buy folks.]
Similarly, in November 2012, the Daily Caller reported that Menendez had contact with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. The senator, however, has never faced prosecution over the allegations.

In late December, Menendez and Sen. Mark Kirk, who is also accused of corruption

Flickr - NASA - NASA Goddard Photo and VideoYou can say its because of a global shift in consciousness, a destiny we have arrived at due to spiritual evolution, or the outcome of strange times, but, many people all across the globe are going through intense personal changes and sensing an expansion of consciousness. Personal changes of this magnitude can be difficult to recognize and to understand, but here are 21 traits of an awakening soul, a ‘sensitive’, or an ‘empath.’

1.  Being in public places is sometimes overwhelming. Since our walls between self and other are dissolving, we haven’t really learned to distinguish between someone else’s energy and our own. If the general mood of the crowd is herd-like or negative, we can feel this acutely, and may feel like retreating into our own private space. When we have recharged our batteries with meditation, spending time in nature, far away from other people, or just sitting in quiet contemplation, we are ready to be with the masses again. In personal relationships, we often will feel someone else’s emotions as our own. It is important to have this higher sense of empathy, but we must learn to allow another person’s emotions while observing them and keeping our empathy, but, realizing that not all emotions belong to usSocial influence can dampen our own innate wisdom.

2.  We know things without having to intellectually figure them out. Often called intuitive awareness, we have ‘a-ha’ moments and insights that can explain some of the most complex theories or phenomenon in the world. Some of the most brilliant minds of our time just ‘know.’ Adepts and sages often were given downloads of information from higher states of consciousness after meditating or being in the presence of a more conscious individual; this is happening for more people with more frequency. As we trust our intuition more often, it grows stronger.  This is a time of ‘thinking’ with our hearts more than our heads. Our guts will no longer be ignored. Our dreams are becoming precognitive and eventually our conscious thoughts will be as well.

3.  Watching television or most of main stream media, including newspapers and many Hollywood movies is very distasteful to us. The mindset that creates much, but not all, of the programming on television and in cinema is abhorrent. It commodifies people and promotes violence. It reduces our intelligence and numbs our natural empathetic response to someone in pain.

4.  Lying to us is nearly impossible. We may not know exactly what truth you are withholding, but we can also tell (with our developing intuition and ESP skills) that something isn’t right. We also know when you have other emotions, pain, love, etc. that you aren’t expressing. You’re an open book to us. We aren’t trained in counter-intelligence, we are just observant and knowing. While we may pick up on physical cues, we can look into your eyes and know what you are feeling.

5.  We may pick up symptoms of your cold, just like men who get morning sickness when their wives are pregnant. Sympathy pains, whether emotional or physical, are something we experience often. We tend to absorb emotion through the solar plexus, considered the place we ‘stomach emotion’ so as we learn to strengthen this chakra center, we may sometimes develop digestive issues. Grounding to the earth can help to re-establish our emotional center. Walking barefoot is a great way to re-ground.

6.  We tend to root for the underdog, those without voices, those who have been beaten down by the matrix, etc. We are very compassionate people, and these marginalized individuals often need more love. People can sense our loving hearts, so complete strangers will often tell us their life stories or approach us with their problems. While we don’t want to be a dumping ground for everyone’s issues, we are also a good ear for those working through their stuff.

7.  If we don’t learn how to set proper boundaries, we can get tired easily from taking on other people’s emotions. Energy Vampires are drawn to us like flies to paper, so we need to be extra vigilant in protecting ourselves at times.

8.  Unfortunately, sensitives or empaths often turn to drug abuse or alcohol to block some of their emotions and to ‘protect’ themselves from feeling the pain of others.

9.  We are all becoming healers. We naturally gravitate toward healing fields, acupuncture, reiki, Qi-Gong, yoga, massage, midwivery, etc. are fields we often find ourselves in. We know that the collective needs to be healed, and so we try our best to offer healing in whatever form we are most drawn to. We also turn away from the ‘traditional’ forms of healing ourselves. Preferring natural foods, herbs, and holistic medicine as ways to cure every ailment.

10.  We see the possibilities before others do. Just like when the church told Copernicus he was wrong, and he stood by his heliocentric theory, we know what the masses refuse to believe. Our minds are light-years ahead.

11.  We are creative. We sing, dance, paint, invent, or write. We have amazing imaginations.

12.  We require more solitude than the average person.

13.  We might get bored easily, but we are really good at entertaining ourselves.

14.  We have a difficult time doing things we don’t want to do or don’t really enjoy. We really do believe life was meant to be an expression of joy. Why waste it doing something you hate? We aren’t lazy, we are discerning.

15.  We are obsessed with bringing the truth to light. Like little children who say, “that’s not fair” we want to right the wrongs of the world, and we believe it often just takes education. We endeavor to explain the unexplainable and find answers to the deep questions of life. We are seekers, in the Campbellian paradigm. ‘The Hero With a Thousand Faces.”

16.  We can’t keep track of time. Our imaginations often get away with us and a day can feel like a minute, a week, a day.

17.  We abhor routine.

18.  We often disagree with authority (for obvious reasons).

19.  We will often be kind, but if you are egotistical or rude, we won’t spend much time with you or find an excuse to not hang out with people who are obsessed with themselves. We don’t ‘get’ people who are insensitive to other people’s feelings or points of view.

20.  We may be vegan or vegetarian because we can sense a certain energy of the food we eat, like if an animal was slaughtered inhumanely. We don’t want to consume negative energy.

21.  We wear our own emotions on our sleeves and have a hard time ‘pretending’ to be happy if we aren’t. We avoid confrontation, But will quietly go about changing the world in ways you can’t even see.

These 21 traits of an awakening soul are a reminder of how important it is to maintain awareness, clarity and strength in these interesting times. If you are experiencing something that is not on this list, please add it to the comments section below.

Monopoly Money, "IOUs" and Where's the gold anyway?

Removing The Shackles

Thursday, 23 January 2014

Time for another episode of "As the world Turns... its stomach!"

In our last episode, we saw the Federal Reserve making up new magic tricks to try to save their asses by inventing $200 Billion for their bankrupt cousins, the Tobigtofail Family.  .....

This week, just so that our viewers don't think that this is just an Americancentric  show, we introduce you to the Chinese kingpins that also seem to of lost their checkbook!!!!

.... ok enough with the cheesy 80's TV!!!

............ although seriously?  It kinda is like watching a really terrible 80's Soap Opera!!!

Bill posted this article yesterday which brings the spotlight over to Asia and the Chinese Banksters.

  China’s $23 Trillion Rothschild Credit ‘Debt’ Bubble Is Starting To Collapse ~ China Hanging Bankers: While U.S. Is $6 Trillion Less At $17 Trillion.

Did you know that financial institutions all over the world are warning that we could see a “mega default” on a very prominent high-yield investment product in China onJanuary 31st? Transparency From China Coming To America: Half Of U.S. Stocks Are Counterfeit! We are being told that this could lead to a cascading collapse of the shadow banking system in China which could potentially result in “sky-high interest rates” and “a precipitous plunge in credit“. In other words, it could be a “Lehman Brothers moment” for Asia. And since the global financial system is more interconnected today than ever before, that would be very bad news for the United States as well. Since Lehman Brothers collapsed in 2008, the level of private domestic credit in China has risen from $9 trillion to an astounding $23 trillion. That is an increase of $14 trillion in just a little bit more than 5 years. Much of that “hot money” has flowed into stocks, bonds and real estate in the United States. So what do you think is going to happen when that bubble collapses? The Big Dogs On Wall Street Are Starting To Get Very Nervous: Coming To America? China & Iran to Execute Bankers On Fraud Charges! The bubble of private debt that we have seen inflate in China since the Lehman crisis is unlike anything that the world has ever seen. Never before has so much private debt been accumulated in such a short period of time. All of this debt has helped fuel tremendous economic growth in China, but now a whole bunch of Chinese companies are realizing that they have gotten in way, way over their heads.

Chinese Stocks Tumble On Contagion Concerns From First Shadow-Banking Default

Tyler Durden's picture

While manufacturing and services PMIs disappointed, the big problem in big China remains that of an out-of-control credit creation process that is blowing up. As we previously noted, instead of crushing credit creation, the PBOC's liquidity rationing has forced distressed companies into high-interest-cost products in the shadow-banking world. Investors on the other side of "troubled shadow banking products" had assumed that 'someone' would bail them out but this evening Reuters reports that ICBC has confirmed that it will not rescue holders of the "Credit Equals Gold #1 Collective Trust Product", due to mature Jan 31st with $492 million outstanding......

.......As Reuters reports,
Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, the world's largest bank by assets, said on Thursday that it has no plans to use its own money to repay investors in a troubled off-balance-sheet investment product that it helped to market.

ICBC's shares have fallen this week amid speculation that the bank would be forced to help repay investors in a 3 billion yuan ($496.20 million) high-yield investment product issued by China Credit Trust Co Ltd but marketed through ICBC branches. The product is due to mature on Jan. 31.

"Regarding this unsubstantiated rumour, a situation completely does not exist in which ICBC will assume the main responsibility (for the trust product)," an ICBC spokesman told Reuters by phone on Tuesday.

The trust product, called "2010 China Credit / Credit Equals Gold #1 Collective Trust Product", used the funds it raised from wealthy investors in 2010 to make a loan to unlisted coal company Shanxi Zhenfu Energy Group Ltd.

But in May 2012, Zhenfu Energy's vice chairman, Wang Ping Yan, was arrested for accepting deposits without a banking licence.

...... But it's not a Soap Opera!  No Really it isn't!

But wait!  There is MORE!!!

While most of the attention in the Chinese shadow banking system is focused on the Credit Equals Gold #1 Trust's default, as we first brought to investors' attention here, and the PBOC has thrown nearly CNY 400 billion at the market in the last few days, there appears to be a bigger problem brewing. As China's CNR reports, depositors in some of Yancheng City's largest farmers' co-operative mutual fund societies ("banks") have been unable to withdraw "hundreds of millions" in deposits in the last few weeks. "Everyone wants to borrow and no one wants to save," warned one 'salesperson', "and loan repayments are difficult to recover." There is "no money" and the doors are locked.
The locked doors of one farmers' co-op...

Via China CNR,......

.....Rough Google Translation:
Salesperson: ...the money has been slowly falling and in the end is difficult to ask for money, right? And now there is no money coming in, now people don't want to save money, and take all the money.

Reporter: But it's their money, they should be able to...

Salesperson: I know I should [given them money]; however, when the turn started, their is no money, we get cut off and lenders and borrowers took off...
One depositor blames the government (for false promises

Mac Slavo outlines what I've been saying for a while- never mind the cash, there ain't no gold either!

Fed’s Dirty Little Secret: “The Gold Isn’t There… Exists as Paper IOU’s”

Mac Slavo
January 21st, 2014
The assumption by global depositors who have entrusted their national savings with the Federal Reserve and US Government has always been that when they request to repatriate their holdings the Fed would simply open the vault, access said assets and ship them back to where they belong.
That’s exactly what Germany expected would happen last year when the country requested that the Federal Reserve return about one-fifth of their gold reserves. But that’s when things got really dicey. The Fed announced that Germany’s gold would be returned… but it would take seven years to get back home.
The response to Germany’s request turned heads all over the world and raised concerns that the Federal Reserve had squandered its gold holdings. But this isn’t the only red flag that was raised. Public pressure reached such levels that the Fed was forced to take steps to maintain confidence in its operations, so it started shipping gold to Germany. Except it turns out that the gold being sent back to the Bundesbank wasn’t actually German gold. It contained none of the original serial numbers, had no hallmarks, and was reportedly just recently melted.
The implications are earth shattering and hit the very core of the problems facing America today. The whole system as it exists is just one big paper IOU.....

But then, isn't that what a fiat dollar is? Just an IOU?  hmmmmmmm

So when companies like HSBC make a boo boo like this:

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Shares of HSBC Holdings PLC HSBC -1.52% fell on Thursday following a report that the banking giant may have overstated assets by as much as $92 billion.
... over stating that you have $92 Billion in fiat currency IOUs for gold that doesn't exist.....  isn't  that kinda like telling the other players that you have Park Place and Boardwalk with 4 hotels on each, when in fact all you have is Mediterranean Avenue and Baltic Avenue?  And then you realize, that it's just a giant game that they are playing anyway, and this one might not have any "Get out of jail free" cards.


The Black Sheep tries to warn its friends with the truth it has seen, unfortunately herd mentality kicks in for the Sheeple, and they run in fear from the black sheep and keep to the safety of their flock.

Having tried to no avail to awaken his peers, the Black Sheep have no other choice but to unite with each other and escape the impending doom.

What color Sheep are you?
