I know, but at some point you run into the six degrees of conspiracy bacon so in some sense everything is connected.

I just think that with all these Argentinian connections, there just has to be something to them.

Add another 'mysterious' death in Argentina a year ago.
This prosecutor was a critic of the previous President of Argentina.



The march came one month after the mysterious death of special prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who had accused Argentina’s president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, of helping to cover up Iran’s role in the deadly 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center that killed 85 people and injured hundreds in Buenos Aires.


ARTICLE:


Who Killed the Argentine Prosecutor?




On January 18 (2015), Nisman was found dead in his apartment of a gunshot wound to the head. His body was discovered just a day before he was due to testify before lawmakers on his findings on the 1994 attack. Just four days before his death, Nisman appeared on television and outlined his allegations against the president and Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman.

Investigators initially said Nisman’s death appeared to be a suicide, but no gunpowder residue was found on his hands. If it was not a suicide, who killed him? That question has gripped Argentina for the past month.

I agree...and the Argentina debt situation and the Vatican are connected.
Powerful people in the U.S. and elsewhere are making billions off of Argentina's debt...and the Obama administration, the Clinton State Dept....and a Supreme Court ruling led by Justice Scalia facilitated it.

On the other side of it, the Argentine religious community and the Catholic Church are crying foul and seeking justice.

Oh this fits right into this....

Ratlines (World War II aftermath)

Ratlines were a system of escape routes for Nazis and other fascists fleeing Europe at the end of World War II. These escape routes mainly led toward havens in South America, particularly Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, and Bolivia. Other destinations included the United States, Great Britain, Canada and the Middle East. There were two primary routes: the first went from Germany to Spain, then Argentina; the second from Germany to Rome to Genoa, then South America; the two routes "developed independently" but eventually came together to collaborate.



The Rat Line was an underground railroad that helped Nazis and their allies escape to Latin America, often with gold and jewelry taken from concentration camp prisoners. Did the Franciscan order and the Vatican assist war criminals?

This fund made an 800% return on Argentina debt




American hedge funds are cashing in on Argentina.

Argentina and four hedge funds ended a 15-year debt battle on Sunday night. Argentina — South America’s second largest economy — agreed to pay $4.65 billion altogether.
As the dust settles, details are emerging about how much cash each hedge fund is going to take to the bank.

One fund, Bracebridge Capital from Boston, will make about $950 million return on its original principal amount of $120 million. That’s about an 800% return.

Billionaire Paul Singer and his firm NML Capital — the leading firm in the case — will rake in $2.28 billion on principal and interest payments. That’s a huge payday considering NML’s original amount of only $617 million.

That’s a 370% return, according to the terms of the agreement and a court document filed by Argentina’s undersecretary of finance, Santiago Bausili.

Argentina offered to pay about 75% of the total claims from the hedge funds. Bloomberg first reported on the individual returns Tuesday evening.

Singer and the others are called “vultures” in Argentina.

Their strategy is pretty simple: wait for a developing country to default on its debt, swoop in and buy the country’s debt at a very cheap price and then sue the country for full repayment.


“While Argentina can now return to the markets, the settlement validates a predatory and exploitative business model,” says Eric LeCompte, executive director of Jubilee USA, a firm that lobbies for financial reforms for developing countries.

Argentine President Claims Former Obama Official Pushed for Nuclear Fuel to Iran.
www.mediaite.com...


n 2010 we were visited in Argentina by Gary Samore, at that time the White House’s top advisor in nuclear issues. He came to see us in Argentina with a mission, with an objective: under the control of IAEA, the international organization in the field of weapons control and nuclear regulation, Argentina had supplied in the year 1987, during the first democratic government, the nuclear fuel for the reactor known as “Teheran”. Gary Samore had explained to our Minister of Foreign Affairs, Héctor Timerman, that negotiations were underway for the Islamic Republic of Iran to cease with its uranium enrichment activities or to do it to a lesser extent but Iran claimed that it needed to enrich this Teheran nuclear reactor and this was hindering negotiations. They came to ask us, Argentines, to provide the Islamic Republic of Iran with nuclear fuel. Rohani was not in office yet. It was Ahmadinejad’s administration and negotiations had already started.




According to Kirchner, when Samore was asked to provide the request in writing, all communication from the United States ceased. Kirchner stated, “This message was conveyed and I believe that was the last time, after that communication, that our Minister of Foreign Affairs saw Gary Samore.”

As soon as the essential protocol from the Argentinian government was pushed further — asking for the Iranian fuel transfer request in writing — Samore, she says, disappeared.

In light of the AMIA bombing and subsequent investigations, Kirchner continued, “…Argentina’s contribution to this negotiation process…was impossible. [However] The Minister of Foreign Affairs came to see me in my office, and I remember this very clearly, and I said that if this request were made in writing and signed, we could, after all, cooperate.”

It would appear as if the Argentinian President was outing a high-ranking member of the Obama administration while standing live on the floor of the UN. We reached out to the White House and thus far, they have not returned our call for comment.



Now, this is mighty intriguing! Maybe Obama is headed to Argentina to finish a clean up some of his own messes.

AND we have a Clinton connection...and we all thought Bill and Hillary have nothing to do with Hedge Funds.


Clintonians Join Vulture Flock Over Argentina




It is no surprise that right-wing Republican and hedge fund billionaire Paul Singer should be trying to wring hundreds of millions of dollars out of Argentina for a debt that Buenos Aires doesn’t really owe him. He screwed tens of millions of dollars out of poverty-stricken Peru and the Republic of Congo using the same financial sleight of hand. What may surprise people, however, is that key leaders in the administration of former President Bill Clinton are helping him do it.



But the people who head up the main lobbying organization behind Singer’s current campaign, the American Task Force Argentina (ATFA), sit on the high councils of the Democratic Party and would likely be part of any Hillary Clinton administration.

The task force is essentially a front for several vulture funds, conservative and libertarian business groups, and agricultural organizations, like the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association, which would like to damage Argentina’s cattle export business. And its executive director is Robert Raben, former counsel for liberal Congressman Barney Frank, Democratic counsel for the House Subcommittee on the Constitution and assistant attorney general in the Clinton administration.

ATFA’s two co-chairs are Clinton’s former undersecretary of commerce, Robert Shapiro, and Clinton appointee to the United Nations Nancy Soderberg. Shapiro was an adviser to Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign and a senior adviser to Al Gore’s 2000 run for the White House. Soderberg, who served as a senior foreign policy adviser to Sen. Edward Kennedy, was also a member of Clinton’s National Security Council and an alternative representative to the U.N. with the title of ambassador. She is currently a Democratic Party activist in Florida and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Raben, Soderberg and Shapiro have written numerous opinion pieces on Argentina using their Clinton administration credentials and, depending on the publication, have not always disclosed their lobbying ties. The three snookered the progressive Huffington Post into running opinion pieces until journalists Christina Wilkie and Ryan Grim uncovered their ties to ATFA. HuffPo subsequently removed the articles from its website.




Given the ongoing hangover from the 2007-08 international meltdown, there is a lot of vulture food out there.

The key role being played by important Democratic Party activists in this cruel business—for there is no other word to describe taking money from countries struggling to emerge from debt and recession—may seem contradictory. And yet it was the Clinton administration that deregulated national and international finance and fought so hard for policies that ended up impoverishing some of the countries the vultures are now preying on.





Hillary Clinton, however, has been quiet on the subject of international debt and Argentina. Given that her husband’s administration helped push Argentina off the cliff, that is hardly a surprise.

What is disquieting is that Clinton and people such as Raben, Shapiro and Soderberg have an economic philosophy that many times marches in step with that of Wall Street.

According to The New York Times, the financial sector was the second largest contributor to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 run for the White House.
She is also close to the center-right Third Way think tank that advocates cutting Social Security and tends to be allergic to financial regulations. It is hard to imagine a Hillary Clinton administration stacked with Wall Street insiders and hedge fund lobbyists coming down on the vultures.

Is this why Kirchner was removed? She wanted this deal, to supply nuclear fuel to Iran's "Teheren" reactor, in writing before she would cooperate. That would've been her proof of U.S. being involved in case something went wrong.

Obama and administration not playing 'nice'. Trying to do a sneaky back-door deal with Iran, by asking Argentina to supply the fuel, in order to get them to accept negotiations with U.S.

Makes me sick.

Well well well, take a look at this:


Argentina’s central bank published resolution late yday on website limiting fx position for banks to 30% of assets.

Banks will have to limit fx futures contracts to 10% of assets: resolution

Banks must comply with resolution by April 30


And then this happens...

Via WaPo,

Nine first-responders were killed, seven others injured and two were missing as they battled a fire of unknown origin that destroyed an archive of bank documents in Argentina’s capital on Wednesday.

The fire at the Iron Mountain warehouse took hours to control...

The destroyed archives included documents stored for Argentina’s banking industry, said Buenos Aires security minister Guillermo Montenegro.

The cause of the fire wasn’t immediately clear.

Boston-based Iron Mountain manages, stores and protects information for more than 156,000 companies and organizations in 36 countries. Its Argentina subsidiary advertises that its facilities have multiple protections against fire, including advanced systems that can detect and quench flames without damaging important documents.


Argentine Banking System Archives Destroyed By Deadly Fire

So, the same day that Argentina announces it is going to place restrictions on how its banks operate, a fire breaks out and destroys a number of archived records dealing with the operations of banks...

Quite a few dangling threads to tug on, aren't there?

Paper trails are a no-no when dirty deeds are ordered. Best to meet face to face in private on the golf course, behind closed doors, or by means of a trusted liaison.

Now, I'm wondering of C. Allen Foster's Argentine visit, the Pope's meeting with the Argentine president, and Obama's upcoming visit (all within just a few weeks of each other) aren't all connected in some way.

Pope Francis must have known Macri before he was president:


President Macri assumed office in December, and was previously the Head of Government of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires from 2007 to 2015. Previously, he represented the City of Buenos Aires in the lower house of Argentina’s Congress from 2005 to 2007. Pope Francis served as the Archbishop of Buenos Aires from 1998 until his election to the see of Peter in 2013.

The Pope probably knew him...but I'm guessing his sympathies were more in line with President Kirchner.

Remember, the socialist Catholics in Argentina are currently siding with Kirchner's original view against the vulture funds.
This current Argentine President is Right Wing.

UH OH...remember all those bankers who (cough, cough) committed 'suicide' about the same time as the fire?:



UPDATE: Another JP Morgan Executive has committed suicide today, 2/18/2014. Will update as more info becomes available.


I have been researching the deaths of the 6 bankers who supposedly committed suicide and what I have uncovered is disturbing to say the least. So disturbing in fact, that I have mailed copies of my findings to top trusted individuals.

On February 5, 2014, the Argentine Central Bank was destroyed by a fire in Buenos Aires. They are a Boston, Massachusetts
based company known as Iron Mountain, Inc. They manage, store and destroy documents and tapes for over 156, 000 companies in 36 countries.

Mainly, corporate and banking industry documents, as well as health documents. They have recently been working with the IRS to convert to an REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) with the hope of attracting investors. No ruling on that from the IRS yet.

I started digging a little more and discovered that the 6 suicidal bankers worked for companies that had dealings with Iron Mountain, Inc. In fact, Deutche Bank is under investigation by international regulators for supposed currency manipulation. They even fired a currency trader in Argentina in the middle of the investigation. The President of Argentina had instructed the securities regulator to verify whether the companies it regulates had documents on deposit at the Iron Mountain facility.

And then, the whole thing went up in flames.
Seems very unlikely to me that a company that houses the world's most sensitive documents and tapes wouldn't have better precautions in place to prevent a fire from destroying everything.

So I started wondering about our own U.S. Government and what involvement they might have with Iron Mountain and not surprisingly, Iron Mountain has been awarded millions of dollars for various contract awards by our government with the most recent being a contract to store our Veteran's records.





According to a Wall Street Journal report, British, US, European Union and Swiss regulators have allegedly found electronic chat room messages that appear to show that traders from different banks shared information about client orders and agreed to sequence their own trades to take advantage.

Deutsche Bank has allegedly spent millions of dollars going through traders' emails and chat sessions looking for specific dates, phrases and keywords to root out evidence of wrongdoing. RPS and JP Morgan are the latest financial groups to ban multi-bank and multi-dealer chat rooms.

Ryan Henry Crane was a JP Morgan equities trading executive. He was found dead on February 3, 2014 and no cause of death has been released.

Gabriel Magee died on January 28, 2014 at JP Morgan's European Headquarters after "falling" from the roof. Although he was not a trader or a banker, he did work in the technology division for JP Morgan.

William Broeksmit was a recently retired executive at Deutsche Bank AG. Broeksmit had two stints at Frankfurt-based Deutsche Bank, Europe’s biggest investment bank by revenue, first from 1996 to 2001, then from 2008 until his retirement last February. He worked as an independent consultant in the interim. When he rejoined the bank in 2008 it was in a newly created position, head of portfolio risk optimization. He was found hanging in a residence on January 26, 2014.

Karl Slym was the Managing Director for Tata Motors from 2012 to 2014. He was responsible for mapping out the company's strategy to accelerate growth plans and gain positive leverage in the automobile sector. He died January 26, 2014 after supposedly jumping from his 33rd floor room in Bangkok, Thailand.

Mike Dueker was the Chief Economist for Russell Investments. He also wrote for Russell's Market Outlook publications, forecasting the business cycle and the target federal funds rate. He supposedly jumped a 4 foot fence and tumbled down a 40 to 50 foot embankment to his death in Tacoma, Washington on January 29, 2014.

Richard Talley was the founder and CEO of American Title Services in Colorado. He and his company were under investigation by state insurance regulators but no other information as to why is forthcoming. Mr. Talley apparently committed suicide by shooting himself 7 or 8 times in the head and chest with a nail gun on February 4, 2014.

MISSING! David Bird: Bird was a reporter for the Wall Street Journal covering OPEC and he has been missing since January 11, 2014. OPEC, with support from Asia and Russia are planning to introduce a new currency backed by gold for oil.

I do not believe these men committed suicide. I believe they either knew of involvement in currency manipulation or they were a part of it. And they were permanently shut up for their knowledge and/or work.

The President and CEO of Iron Mountain, Inc. is William Meaney and he is a former CIA Operations Officer. Is Iron Mountain nothing more than a CIA front used to gather the documents from the world's largest banks and health insurance industries. They are associated with PRISM which is the clandestine mass electronic surveillance mining data program that was launched in 2007 by the NSA.

I know all of these events are related and I will continue my research. I have sent the information I do have to top trusted officials because they have the resources to investigate the matter in greater depth than I do. I will update as I find out more.
