First Ashleigh Banfield on Fox, and now Rachel Maddow on MSNBC?! The media are coming around?
Something’s up. For the lamestream to question the validity of the official stories has always been taboo. Were they just playing along all this time, waiting for their time to step into the role they’d planned, at the perfect moment—to kick the process of reasoning into high gear?
The fact that these two popular women are drawing a bead on this particular aspect of this particular story is crucial, and I don’t believe it’s an accident. It opens the door for even more dialogue—not only concerning this event, but others—and to jar the masses awake.
What’s next? Benghazi? 9/11? The star nations???!!!!
I don’t think it’s about ratings. The energies are supporting it now. It’s happening. Day by day our reality is morphing. Our new world is about to emerge. Right now we’re spinning the silk. Soon… the butterfly will emerge. ~ BP
Questions surrounding mysterious death of alleged Boston bomber acquaintance pile up
Most people wouldn’t consider MSNBC host Rachel Maddow a conspiracy theorist.
The liberal-left poster child and Rhodes scholar often belittles so-called “9/11 truthers,” people who think the Sandy Hook school shooting was a staged event and people who believe the government is stockpiling ammunition.
But there’s one pesky detail concerning the Boston Marathon bombing Maddow just can’t get her head around: the mysterious circumstances behind the death of 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev at the hands of the FBI during questioning, an incident that has all the makings of a government cover-up.
In a segment last night discussing the ridiculousness of a report which found that every FBI shooting since 1993, about 150 of them, has been “deemed justified,” Maddow questioned if the agency investigating itself might not be such a good idea.
“The fact is that no one else really reviews FBI shootings other than the FBI itself, other than this internal review board. They’re federal agents, right? Nobody prosecutes them for shooting people, nobody looks into their shootings except the FBI itself. And unless you believe in the ‘perfect angels’ theory of FBI agent bullets, you better believe there’s something wrong at the FBI.
Even when games are rigged they don’t go 150 and 0. That’s not a real record. That’s not actually found in nature. Nobody is supposed to be above the law in this country, even the FBI, and there is something wrong, something obviously wrong with the way we are handling FBI shootings if every one ever reviewed in the last 20 years has been ruled ‘justified.’”
Maddow also found it strange that the FBI blocked the release of Todashev’s autopsy report, and that Todashev’s girlfriend and two friends were all “quickly deported or kept out of this country” after his death, people who could otherwise “conceivably talk about it or shed light on what happened.”
Todashev’s death really bugs Maddow. Like most Americans, she’s reluctant to accept the government purposely murders innocent people then rushes to cover it up. Yet this is, and has always been, the standard modus operandi.
The MSNBC host hopes against all odds, however, that Obama’s recent appointee as head of FBI, James Comey, who she says has a reputation for “doing what’s right,” and Attorney General Eric Holder, whose notorious reputation precedes him, will release the full report on Todashev’s death.
Is the liberal host off on a jag on this issue because she knows people are tuning out the lame-stream dinosaur media in droves? In 2013, MSNBC saw its ratings fall by nearly half, losing as many as 45 percent of its viewers. Have multiple segments on the subject been produced in a desperate attempt to ingratiate MSNBC to an information-hungry public and appear as though they actually question the government?
If you can stomach it, here’s a few of Maddow’s past conspiratorial segments aimed at getting to the bottom of the inexplicable FBI killing.
Fancy Fox coming forward with even a semi-truthful spin on old news. Do they think the public will believe them NOW? Won’t their audience wonder why they didn’t share this information sooner? It took an independent journalist to research the facts and piece the story together.
Sounds like a total lack of journalism on the part of Fox, but wait— there aren’t any journalists in the lamestream media, are there. That wasn’t a question.
The real journalists either left to work where they could do what they do unfettered by corporate oversight, or were fired, assassinated or ‘disappeared’ to keep them quiet.
REAL journalists are a liability, not an asset, when it comes to mass media. They’re loose cannons. The truth must be covered up at all costs.
This revelation is a step in the right direction, though. Thank you Ashleigh Banfield for having Susan Zalkind on your show.
Perhaps some will reconsider all the other stories they believed were “conspiracy theory”, like Sandy Hook, the Batman Theatre Massacre—and let’s not forget 9/11. ~ BP

(INTELLIHUB) — Over 10-months later, Fox News has now stumbled across information reported by Intellihub News since almost day one.
However, astonishingly the mainstream media is now admitting that the “Boston bombings may have never occurred”. This comes directly from the Fox News show “Legal View” with Ashleigh Banfield.
Interestingly, Banfield’s guest went on to cover the details of the staged spectacle that had the entire city of Boston locked-down in a beta test of a martial law roll-out scenario.
Please take a few moments to watch the video for yourself.
The official report on the Boston Marathon bombings is set to be released in March of 2014.

Good stuff from Ben Swann. What actually happens to Yanukovych may be different from the stated intent. He needs to do penance for his actions—and so do the members of the cabal who instigated this firestorm of chaos and violence. What must the multitude of extraterrestrial races think of Terra’s humans at this point? It’s embarrassing to be part of this culture. ~ BP
Please see the Source link for the video.
Over the last few weeks the violence in Ukraine has been incredible. These have been the bloodiest days in 22 years since Ukraine’s push for independence. As opposition protestors fought for control of Kiev, protestors say that the countries president Vyctor Yanukovych ordered police to fire on crowds and kill unarmed people.
Yanukovych now has an arrest warrant out for him. What this means for Ukraine but also for the rest of the world.
It appears that banksters aren’t the only ones offed by the cabal so they can’t talk. How many SEALS now have been killed after special operations in unexpected ways… such as falling out of a helicopter? There is nothing these psychopaths wouldn’t do. Who’s next?
This piece also confirms what I said in the very beginning; that the Tsarnaev brothers were innocent of the bombing, probably mind-controlled patsies. ~ BP

They’ve shared some interesting things on Drake’s FB page recently. This was one of them.
This is the second big financial guy I know of that died here in the Phoenix area. Last year one took a home-made cyanide pill while in court for his actions and died enroute to the hospital. He’d torched his home, I believe.
Related to the other long and growing list of expired banksters? Cause of death unknown? Police not reachable on the weekend? You tell me. ~ BP

Finally!!! Bankster arrests and prosecutions as Barclays steps into the ring.
And it appears that the last JP Morgan exec to die in Hong Kong may have been an actual suicide. See the video below. I guess we could say he lived the way he chose, and died the way he chose. ~ BP

Three former Barclays bank employees have now been charged with “conspiracy to defraud” in the continuing LIBOR scandal, bringing the total to 13 people charged in America and the U.K. It has been reported that three ex-ICAP brokers are next on the list for helping traders manipulate interest rates.
Three former Barclays bankers have been charged “in connection with the manipulation of Libor” interest rates, the Serious Fraud Office said.
The SFO alleges the three – Peter Charles Johnson, Jonathan James Mathew and Stylianos Contogoulas – “conspired to defraud between 1 June 2005 and 31 August 2007″.
They will appear at Westminster Magistrates court at a date to be confirmed. (source)
LIBOR is an interbank benchmark used to set the interest rates on trillions in loans all over the world.
The investigation into LIBOR’s deliberate manipulation began in 2008, and it has come to light that traders at various banks all over the world have benefited financially from turning in false interest rate reports since.
Thus far, Barclays and other mega banks including JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, UBS, Deutsche Bank and the Royal Bank of Scotland have been forced to pay billions in regard to rigging interest rates.
The Wall Street Journal is also reporting that authorities in the United States, United Kingdom and EU are currently investigating a group of traders from various banks for manipulating Euribor, the euro interbank interest rate, as well.
The news comes on the heels of a rash of banker suicides.
Jan. 26, 2014
William Broeksmit, 58-year-old retired Deutsche Bank senior manager with close ties to co-chief exec. Anshu Jain, was found hanging dead at his home in London. It was reported as an apparent suicide. Police quickly declared that Broeksmit’s death was not suspicious.
Jan. 28, 2014
Two days later Gabriel Magee, 39, reportedly leapt to his death from the 33rd story of JP Morgan’s European headquarters in London sometime around 8 a.m. Magee was the bank’s VP in CIB Technology. His death was also quickly ruled “non-suspicious”. There was no indication Magee was going to kill himself at all. In fact, Magee’s girlfriend had received an email from him the night before saying he was finishing up work and would be home soon.
The London Coroner’s Office is set to hold a formal inquest into Magee’s death, but not until May 15th.
Jan. 29, 2014
Chief Economist at Russell Investments, 50-year-old Mike Dueker, was reported missing on Jan. 29. He was found dead off the side of a highway leading to Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington. A Pierce County detective said he may have jumped over a four-foot fence and fallen some 40-to-50 feet down an embankment in another apparent suicide. Although the detective maintained Dueker was having trouble at work, a Russell spokeswoman said Dueker was in good standing.
Dueker, a prior assistant VP and research economist for the St. Louis branch of the Federal Reserve Bank, had worked at Russell for five years, during which time he developed a business-cycle index that forecast economic performance.
Feb. 3, 2014
Ryan Crane, a 37-year-old JP Morgan trading exec., was found dead in his Stamford, Connecticut home. He was an executive director, a rank above vice president, in the bank’s Americas Program Trading group. Cause of death is awaiting determination via toxicology report.
Feb. 4, 2014
57-year-old Richard Talley, former investment banker at Drexel Burnham Lambert and founder of Centennial, Colorado-based American Title Services, was found dead in his garage with eight nail gun wounds to his torso and head. They were reportedly “self-inflicted”. His company was under investigation at the time of his death.
Just last month, JP Morgan Chase, America’s biggest bank, admitted wrongdoing and was fined $461 million for willfully violating the Bank Secrecy Act in relation to Bernie Madoff’s multi-billion dollar Ponzi scheme. “When JPMorgan suspected Mr. Madoff’s fraud, it focused on its own investment exposure and saved itself approximately $250 million. If it had given the same attention to its anti-money laundering responsibilities, it could have saved itself $2 billion, and potentially saved thousands of other fraud victims untold misery and loss,” stated Financial Crimes Enforcement Network Director Jennifer Shasky Calvery.
JP Morgan also owns over 60% of the total notional of all US gold derivatives ($108.2 billion).
While all these instances could be entirely unrelated in any way, others are wondering if the heat intensifying in the LIBOR scandal, the hint at other major interest rate scandals, and the rash of recent banker suicides is suggesting a bigger global financial implosion to come.
Another JP Morgan Banker committed suicide over the weekend. Watch this video for the latest update:
Is this thrown out there to obfuscate the issue? Nothing the cabal does is simple or straightforward. This may be one of many smokescreens to keep anyone from learning the truth behind the assassinations.
If not, there may very well be a lot more bankers suicided, as some have warned is imminent.
And the reason for procrastinating on the autopsy until May? Perhaps, like Sandy Hook and the Michael Hastings setups, they hope people will forget about the incidents and they can then quietly sweep them under the carpet and get one of their corrupt judges to seal the files so the public never has access to the truth. ~ BP
By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: February 17, 2014
The probability of two vibrant young men in their 30s who are employed by the same global bank but separated by an ocean dying within six days of each other is remote. And few companies are in as good a position to understand just how remote as is JPMorgan: since 2010, it has received four patents on quantifying longevity risks and structuring wagers via death derivatives.
The two deaths at JPMorgan remain unexplained. Gabriel Magee, a 39-year old technology Vice President was found dead on the 9th level rooftop of JPMorgan’s European headquarters at 25 Bank Street in the Canary Wharf section of London on January 28 of this year. A London coroner’s inquest is scheduled for May 15 to determine the cause of death. Six days later, Ryan Crane, a 37-year old Executive Director involved in trading at JPMorgan’s New York office was found dead at his Stamford, Connecticut home. Wall Street On Parade spoke with the Chief Medical Examiner’s office in Connecticut and was told the cause of death is “pending,” with final results expected in a few weeks.
Magee’s death was originally reported by London newspapers as a jump from the 33rd level rooftop of JPMorgan’s building with the strong implication that eyewitnesses had observed the jump. The London Evening Standard tweeted: “Bankers watch JP Morgan IT exec fall to his death from roof of London HQ,” which then linked to their article which said in its opening sentence that “A man plunged to his death from a Canary Wharf tower in front of thousands of horrified commuters today.”
When Wall Street On Parade contacted the Metropolitan Police in London a few days later, there was no assurance that even one eyewitness was on record as having seen Magee jump from the building.
Crane’s death is equally problematic. The death occurred on February 3 but the first major media to report it was Bloomberg News on February 13, ten days after the fact, and making no mention of Magee’s unexplained death just six days prior.
According to information available at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, JPMorgan created the LifeMetrics Index in March 2007 as an “international index designed to benchmark and trade longevity risk.” The index was said to enable pension plans to hedge the risk of payments to retirees and incorporated “historical and current statistics on mortality rates and life expectancy, across genders, ages, and nationalities.” From 2010 through 2013, JPMorgan has received patent approval on four longevity related patents.
Reuters reported on August 26, 2013 that the long-term longevity bets taken on by the big banks have now started to cause pain as international capital rules known as Basel III require more capital to be set aside for longer-dated positions. The article noted that “JPMorgan likely has the biggest holdings of long-dated swaps because it is the biggest swaps trader on Wall Street, responsible for about 30 percent of the market by some measures, traders at rival firms said.”
One extremely long longevity bet taken on by JPMorgan was reported by Insurance Risk on October 1, 2008. According to the publication, JPMorgan entered into a 40-year £500 million notional longevity swap with Canada Life whereby Canada Life would make a fixed annual payment in return for a floating liability-matching payment that would increase if the annuitants lived longer than expected. JPMorgan was believed to have passed on some of the risk to hedge fund investors but retained the counterparty risk. Because many of these deals are private, the full extent of JPMorgan’s exposure in this area is not known.
Wall Street veterans have also commented on the fact that JPMorgan may actually stand to profit from the early deaths of the two young men in their 30s. As we reported in March of last year, when the U.S. Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations released its report on JPMorgan’s high risk bets known as the London Whale debacle, its Exhibit 81 showed that JPMorgan’s Chief Investment Office was also overseeing Bank Owned Life Insurance (BOLI) and Corporate Owned Life Insurance (COLI) plans which allow the corporation to reap huge tax benefits by taking out life insurance policies on workers – even low wage workers – and naming the corporation the beneficiary of the death benefit. Both the buildup in the policy and the benefit at death are received tax free to the corporation.
According to the exhibit, the Chief Investment Office was tasked with “Maximization of tax-advantaged investments of life insurance premiums” for the BOLI/COLI plans. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal in 2009, JPMorgan had $12 billion in BOLI, noting that a JPMorgan spokesperson had confirmed the figure. Other insurance industry experts put the total for both BOLI and COLI at JPMorgan significantly higher.
In September of last year, Risk Magazine reported that the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, the International Organization of Securities Commissions and the International Association of Insurance Supervisors had published a report in August warning regulators that longevity swaps may expose banks to longevity tail risk – meaning, for example, that actual death rates in a given portfolio may vary dramatically from a large population index.
One advisor is quoted as follows in the article: “You can see from the position paper that this market has a lot of characteristics that regulators don’t like in terms of banks getting involved in it. It’s based on long-dated risks, upfront payments and a serious element of hubris in assuming that the banks can model these risks better than the people who originated them. It’s potentially a market big enough to cause serious problems if it caught on and went wrong.”
That things are starting to go seriously wrong was evident in a Bloomberg News report that emerged last Friday. AIG reported that it was taking a $971 million impairment charge before taxes for 2013 on its holdings of life settlement contracts because people were living longer than expected. AIG is the company that was bailed out by the U.S. taxpayer to the tune of $182 billion during the financial crisis because of bets gone wrong.
Sorry for the flippancy my friends, but this is just getting too absurd to take seriously. It’s a game, right? Either that or the world is stark raving bonkers.
I go out for a few hours and come home to this? Do they really think anyone will consider these mounting deaths coincidence? The Illuminati have lost their marbles. ~ BP
8th International Banker to Die in a Month
( I don’t think this portion of the headline applies) Jumps Off Building in China
A man who jumped from the JP Morgan building in Hong Kong this week becomes the 8th banker to die mysteriously this month
By John Vibes
HONG KONG (INTELLIHUB) — All month we have been reporting on the suspicious string of apparent suicides that have hit the financial industry. Multiple bankers have been found dead in recent weeks, all of them have been ruled suicides despite the fact that little information has been released in some of the cases.
Those who had high profile deaths, like the man who jumped from the top of the JP Morgan HQ building in Europe are highly publicized, but overall, very few details about any of these deaths have been made public. Now this week, another investment banker has jumped from a different JP Morgan HQ, on a different continent, this time in Hong Kong, China.
The fact that many of these deaths seem to be tied to JP Morgan is arousing further suspicion that there is more to this story than meets the eye.
String of suspicious deaths:
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 in Hong Kong this week.
Were these bankers killed for knowing too much? Were they involved in something so unethical that they killed themselves out of shame? These are the speculations that are rising in the wake of these apparent suicides.
