The terrorists who killed Deutsche Bank CEO Alfred Herrhausen in 1989 in Bad Homburg were professionals. They dressed as construction workers to lay a wire under the pavement of the road along Mr. Herrhausen's usual route to work. They planted a sack of armor-piercing explosives on a parked bicycle by the roadside. An infrared beam shining across the road triggered the explosion just when the armored Mercedes limousine, one of three cars in a convoy, sped by. They took off both legs and he bled to death. So when we see headlines today involving a 12Billion dollar shortfall in losses that weren't reported by this bank one should not be too shocked. After all banking can be an extremely dangerous business. The Red Army terrorist group was the first suspect the "Press" put up to the public with the authorities in hot pursuit of the usual suspect. One may wish to do their own research on the event and it is quite interesting when you find the investigative reporting that looked beyond the "usual suspect". Herrhausen was more interested in proper banking than creating mountains of debt from the printing press and East Germany was about to be dropped on the lap of West Germany to be "incorporated" into the West and Herrhausen was trying to do it in a way that didn't overburden the German people with immediate debt. It didn't work out for him too well. Now the same bank is wrestling with the mountain of debt created by perpetual debt creation and for reasons unknown the PTB have brought this story to the fore. Enjoy the fireworks. As Red likes to say it doesn't end here. These are indeed strange times for many people to experience. Fortunately for you if you understand the game then you know that the neo-keneysians have given you a gift that many do not appreciate. They have bought you over a YEAR to accumulate gold and silver (especially silver) at very good prices. I know readers of this blog that agree with the analysis of the corrupt system and manipulation but have not bought one ounce of gold or silver. They even have cash to do so. But they believe that the "system" will allow them an exit in time. Maybe it will. Unfortunately I don't have that same luxury of belief. I have readers that have made it very clear to me that they will sell their positions in the miners as soon as they turn green. I wondered to myself what in God's name would you then invest in.....CASH?? Bonds?? CDs?? You have had your chance to accumulate. Now EVERYONE OF US should thank them for that time and that gift. GL to you.
