(Before It’s News)

A 4th banker has been found dead of an apparent suicide within the last week according to this story from Russia Today and the video below. Are these bankers committing suicide because they are unable to deal with their financial crimes against society or is this something much more? According To ‘V’ The Guerrilla Economist, Bankers Deaths Are Assassinations!!! (Simply, they’re tying up loose ends!)

First of all, we want to reiterate here that we at were not among those who hated the late Chief of Naval Operations, ADM Jeremy Boorda or rejoiced at news of his death.

On the contrary, we respected him as a man, who like us, came “up from the ranks” as a Mustang officerWhile we never bought the “official story” that Boorda committed “suicide” over a couple of disputed attachments to his ribbons – the Navy’s ham-handed cover-up of the truth only made things worse they never learn – until now, we hadn’t got hard INTEL that might explain just why Boorda had to die.

All we can say for the moment is that a reliable source indicates it may have been so horrible that the only enlisted sailor to make CNO in Naval history, would have been ruined if the news had leaked out.

We realize even speculating on such a thing could be hurtful to his family. They have remained very quiet indeed about what really happened. You can’t blame them for not speaking to the media.

Record Number of US Military and Veteran Suicides | Veterans Today

February 10, 2013 Leave a comment

by Stephen Lendman


Headlines like this should shock: Suicides Outpace War Deaths. Surge in Military Suicides. Nearly Two Dozen Veterans Commit Suicide Daily.


These reports and similar ones reveal imperialism’s dark side. War takes its toll. Civilians suffer most. So do many combatants and veterans after returning home.

Most people don’t know. Little gets reported. Why do active duty personnel and vets take their own lives?


Unbearable emotional pain consumes them. Daily trauma builds. So does intolerable stress. Relief is desperately sought. Suicide is chosen. It’s a last option. Others were exhausted.

Surviving War, Falling to Suicide

January 3, 2013 Leave a comment

Suffering an IED blast on the battlefield is most certainly a traumatic event, especially when accompanied by witnessing the death or injury of other service members or civilians. Untangling the physical from the mental damage is never easy.

But doctors and veterans’ advocates feel that they are running out of time, given the skyrocketing rates of suicide among active-duty soldiers and veterans. According to the most recent statistics, Army and Navy suicides are at a record high: 2012 was the worst year for self-inflicted deaths since the military began tracking them in 2001. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta last summer called the situation an “epidemic” — with approximately 3,000 military suicides on record since 9/11.

Experts: Restricting troops’ access to firearms is necessary to reduce rate of suicides

December 4, 2012 Leave a comment

The horror of war, repeated deployments, the operations tempo, failed relationships, financial problems, legal trouble, depression, PTSD, TBI.


Many reasons have been suggested to explain the substantial rise in the suicide rate of soldiers that began in 2004.

Numerous prevention efforts were launched, hundreds of millions of dollars spent on studies and task forces, resilience programs and increasing access to mental health care.


Yet eight years and hundreds of deaths later, the suicide rate hasn’t improved. The number of suspected suicides in 2012 among active-duty soldiers was 166 at the end of October, surpassing the 165 total for all of 2011.

The number of people who commit suicide in the U.S. has drastically increased while deaths from car accidents have dropped, making suicide the leading cause of injury death.

Suicides via falls or poisoning have risen significantly and experts fear that there could be many more unaccounted for, particularly in cases of overdose.

…..”It’s all so counter-intuitive that the average person likely cannot grasp what is happening at this moment: The United States is switching sides. We are joining forces with a nation of people that hates us and everything we stand for, while simultaneously turning our backs on a nation of people that love us. And we are agreeing with those who do not even grasp the bedrock of our political system, much less approve of it.

Can a General Call Suicide “Selfish”? (“…I have now come to the conclusion that suicide is an absolutely selfish act. I am personally fed up with soldiers…”)

Civilian expansion has gradually encroached on land occupied by Fort Bliss, prompting city officials to place signs at the border where the two meet. This particular sign on Loop 375 denotes the end of the military installation on the far east side of El Paso. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“I have now come to the conclusion that suicide is an absolutely selfish act. I am personally fed up with soldiers who are choosing to take their own lives so that others can clean up their mess. Be an adult, act like an adult and deal with your real-life problems like the rest of us.”

From Military Affairs Correspondent Jamie McIntyre

WASHINGTON (CNN) — David Hackworth, the retired army colonel turned journalist who questioned medals worn by the Navy’s top admiral — who later killed himself — acknowledges he wrongly claimed credit for two of his own military honors.

The awards, which had been listed on Hackworth’s personal Internet page, have now been removed.


Hackworth, once a columnist for Newsweek magazine, has described himself as America’s most decorated living veteran. He was scheduled to interview Adm. Jeremy Boorda, chief of naval operations, on the day Boorda committed suicide one year ago.

Boorda, 56, committed suicide less than two hours after he learned that reporters would be questioning him about two pins on ribbon decorations that he had worn.

Marine fights conviction for suicide attempt

February 7, 2012 Leave a comment

HAGERSTOWN, Md. – A discharged Marine private who slit his wrists in a suicide attempt is fighting his military conviction for deliberately injuring himself, arguing the punishment is inconsistent with the armed forces‘ efforts to battle a rise in suicides during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It’s not clear how often the Marines or any other service branch prosecute active duty members for trying to kill themselves. But the defense lawyer for Pvt. Lazzaric T. Caldwell says it’s wrong to punish service members with mental health problems for genuine suicide attempts. Suicide prevention has become a priority across the military as numbers climbed in the past decade with the increasing stress of combat and multiple deployments in the wars.

Caldwell, 25, of Camp Pendleton, Calif., never deployed to a war zone but was diagnosed in 2009 with post-traumatic stress disorder and a personality disorder, according to court records. In 2010, he slashed his wrists in his barracks at Camp Schwab in Okinawa, Japan.

He pleaded guilty at a court-martial that year to “intentional self-injury without intent to avoid service,” a criminal charge that the government says helps maintain good order and discipline in the armed forces. The charge is sometimes used in self-injury cases when there isn’t enough evidence to prove malingering, military justice experts say.

(‘ Officer John Doe I stated: ‘I don’t have time to play this constitutional bullshit!’) ~ Man Calls Suicide Hotline; Arrested, Cops Trash House Looking for Gun (DC)

February 7, 2012 Leave a comment

A depressed Army reservist who made a phone call for help says dozens of police responded by surrounding his home and arresting him, vandalizing and searching his place without a warrant, seizing his dog and killing his tropical fish.

Matthew Corrigan, who lives alone with his dog, sued the District of Columbia in D.C. Federal Court.

Confronted with a massive police presence after his plea for help, Corrigan says, he denied officers permission to enter his house, but they entered and trashed it anyway, saying, “I don’t have time to play this constitutional bulls**t!”

Corrigan says the debacle started on Feb. 2, 2010.

“Corrigan telephoned what he believed to be the ‘Military’s Emotional Support Hotline’ because he was depressed and had not slept for several days,” the complaint states.

“The number Corrigan called was in fact the National Suicide Hotline. When he stated that he was a veteran, he was asked if he had firearms, to which he said yes. He said nothing about being suicidal or using a firearm or threatening anyone. After a short conversation, Corrigan hung up, turned off the phone, took prescribed sleeping medication, and went to bed.

“At approximately 4 a.m. in the morning of Feb. 3, 2010, Corrigan awoke because he heard his name being called over a bullhorn. There were floodlights outside his front and back doors and an estimated 8 police officers in the back yard and 20 in the front yard.

“Corrigan turned on his phone and found that Officer Fischer of the 5th District was calling him, asking him to come out, which he did at about 4:50 a.m., locking the door behind him. He was handcuffed and put in the back of a SWAT truck.

“When Officer John Doe I (upon information and belief, Officer John Doe I is Lieutenant Robert Glover) asked Corrigan for the key to his apartment, he informed the officer: ‘There is no way I am giving you consent to enter my place.’ Officer John Doe I stated: ‘I don’t have time to play this constitutional bullshit!’ and ordered that Officers John Does II-V, members of the Emergency Response Team (ERT), enter the apartment.” (Parentheses in complaint).

Corrigan says police took him to a VA hospital, broke his front door and entered his apartment without a warrant, where they confiscated his guns, vandalized his place and took his dog to an animal shelter.

“Although the officers had no information that there were explosives in Corrigan’s home and the home had been secured, John Does VI-X, the Explosives Ordinance Disposal (EOD) team, entered Corrigan’s home without a warrant and searched for explosives,” the complaint states. “The EOD team opened closed containers and used X-ray equipment to search closed containers.

The Anatomy of the State by Murray N. Rothbard

December 29, 2011 3 comments

What the State Is Not

The State is almost universally considered an institution of social service. Some theorists venerate the State as the apotheosis of society; others regard it as an amiable, though often inefficient, organization for achieving social ends; but almost all regard it as a necessary means for achieving the goals of mankind, a means to be ranged against the “private sector” and often winning in this competition of resources.

With the rise of democracy, the identification of the State with society has been redoubled, until it is common to hear sentiments expressed which violate virtually every tenet of reason and common sense such as, “we are the government.”

English: Close-up photo of Murray Rothbard

Image via Wikipedia

The useful collective term “we” has enabled an ideological camouflage to be thrown over the reality of political life. If “we are the government,” then anything a government does to an individual is not only just and untyrannical but also “voluntary” on the part of the individual concerned.

If the government has incurred a huge public debt which must be paid by taxing one group for the benefit of another, this reality of burden is obscured by saying that “we owe it to ourselves”; if the government conscripts a man, or throws him into jail for dissident opinion, then he is “doing it to himself” and, therefore, nothing untoward has occurred. Under this reasoning, any Jews murdered by the Nazi government were not murdered; instead, they must have “committed suicide,” since they were the government (which was democratically chosen), and, therefore, anything the government did to them was voluntary on their part. One would not think it necessary to belabor this point, and yet the overwhelming bulk of the people hold this fallacy to a greater or lesser degree.

We must, therefore, emphasize that “we” are not the government; the government is not “us.” The government does not in any accurate sense “represent” the majority of the people.[1] But, even if it did, even if 70 percent of the people decided to murder the remaining 30 percent, this would still be murder and would not be voluntary suicide on the part of the slaughtered minority.[2] No organicist metaphor, no irrelevant bromide that “we are all part of one another,” must be permitted to obscure this basic fact…..

How To Reduce Military Suicides by Laurence M. Vance

November 28, 2011 1 comment

…..The report also noted that military hazing caused some of the suicides and that excess prescription medication in the military community was also a problem.

At an event launching the CNAS report, Vice Chief of Staff of the Army Peter Chiarelli said that trying to reduce the number of suicides in the Army has been “the most difficult challenge” in his forty years in the military. One of the authors of the report, Dr. Margaret Harrell said that the battle against suicide was being lost “multiple times a day.”

According to the Department of Defense Suicide Event Report (DoDSER) for calendar year 2010, 295 service members died by suicide in 2010 (Air Force – 59, Army – 160, Marine Corps – 37, Navy – 39). There were 863 known suicide attempts. The suicide rate for divorced service members was 55 percent higher than the suicide rate for married service members. Most of those who successfully committed suicide were white, male, and under 25 years old. The number of suicides in 2009 was 309; the number in 2008 was 268.

According to the Final Report of the Department of Defense Task Force on the Prevention of Suicide by Members of the Armed Forces, in the nine-year period from 2001 to 2009, more than 1,900 members of the military took their own lives. This is more soldiers than have died fighting in Afghanistan since the war on terror was launched.

The U.S. Army suffered a record 32 suicides in July, the most since it began releasing monthly figures in 2009.

The high number of deaths represents a setback for the Army, which has put a heavy focus on reducing suicides in recent years. The number includes 22 active duty soldiers and 10 reservists. The previous record was 31, from June 2010.

The Left’s Big Lie On Allende

July 21, 2011 Leave a comment

History: President Salvador Allende of Chile really did commit suicide in 1973, an inquest concluded on Tuesday. Now will the Left stop saying the U.S. and Chile’s army did him in?

Except perhaps for Che Guevara, no one has quite been the heroic totem to the global left than the late Marxist president of Chile, whose death in 1973 made him a martyr to socialism.

Allende seemingly legitimized socialism as a democratically elected leader, the first Marxist who in 1970 didn’t shoot his way to power.That gave the left hope for more.

Elected with just 36% of the vote in a split election, he believed he had a mandate to ram through a hard-core Marxist program of expropriation and indoctrination like that of his mentor, Cuba‘s Fidel Castro.

In the process Allende left Chile’s economy in ruins and trampled the rule of law so badly he brought his country to the brink of civil war. He was stopped only when the legislature charged him with 22 constitutional violations and ordered Chile’s military to oust him.

As Chilean jets strafed La Moneda presidential palace Sept. 11, 1973, Allende shot himself with a gold-plated submachine gun given him by Castro.

At the request of Allende’s family, an official investigation in May exhumed the dead man’s body, conducted forensic tests and on Tuesday found that, yes, Allende took his own life. It was what his family always believed, consistent with the tone of his final speech and a family history of suicides.

The Pied Piper of the Godless Music Industry – The Domination of Our Youth

September 29, 2010 Leave a comment

Wherever one goes today, multitudes of teens and young children can be seen avidly imitating and idolizing the vast array of musicians and their decadent, chic culture and lifestyle. Television, satellite radio, iPods and the internet have revolutionized and intensified the accessibility to this hypnotic, godless spirit 2 Cor. 4:3-4; Eph. 2:1-2.

America’s youth in particular are being intoxicated and brainwashed at an exponential rate with Lucifer’s subtle and godless message of “Do as Thou wilt.”What is even more tragic is the majority of “out to lunch” parents who are totally oblivious and gullible about the damnable influence this culture and its demonic propaganda has over their children. These are messages of godlessness, anti-authority, licentiousness and promiscuity, immorality, vice, drug use, suicide, anarchy, violence, rape, “godless good,” delusional aspirations and fallen human hopes apart from the Creator in righteousness. These OTL parents are just as delusional and are products themselves of the same brainwashing and narcissistic tactics used by the Devil in the decadent and subjective 60’s music culture.

Veteran walking barefoot for a cause

August 28, 2010 Leave a comment

Ron Zaleski, barefoot and covered with a sandwich board reading “18 Vets a Day commit suicide,” approached a man in a Jonesborough parking lot Friday.

The Vietnam-era Marine Corps veteran had just been rebuffed by a woman in an adjacent lot but was undeterred in his quest to garner support for more suicide prevention counseling for soldiers and veterans.Roger Kennedy of Piney Flats was more receptive.

“I’m a veteran, too,” Kennedy told Zaleski as the latter explained how he is walking across the United States on foot and will present his petition and case in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 11, 2011.The pair briefly swapped experiences — Kennedy served in Vietnam during a 1969-1972 Army stint, while Zaleski remained stateside during his service from 1970-72 — and Zaleski told Kennedy why he thought more could be done to prevent suicides among soldiers and sailors returning from combat.“Look what they didn’t do for us,” Kennedy said of what many Vietnam veterans see as a lack of government support for combat veterans during the 1970s. “And now here they are not doing it again.”Indeed, a U.S. Defense Department task force reported just this week that suicides among active-duty military members have continued a dramatic rise that began several years ago.
