This is beyond bizarre.

I have not encountered this source website before, and it makes several unbelievable claims:


Henry M. Paulson, the Secretary of the United States Treasury, died today from gunshot wounds suffered as described in this report. The State Department have confirmed this to sources in touch with this service...


On or around Friday 28th December 2007, Henry M. Paulson Jr., Secretary of the US Treasury, was shot at close range in the chest. He was reported to be in a critical condition on New Year’s Eve, and was thought unlikely to make it overnight. At about 7.00pm UK time on 1st January 2008, Henry Paulson was still alive, with the bullet lodged in his chest. Sources stated that he was too weak to be operated upon, which implied that he was thought unlikely to survive.

I did some checking on and its director Christopher E. H. Story. (You will note that is a tinwiki entry.

The main story is also repeated by RumorMillNews, here.

It seems like a stupid thing to assert when the story can be so easily verified later. (Looking at the source website, it's easy to believe none of what is printed there.)

Regardless, I thought I'd post the item here to get some reactions to it.

Interesting, no?

i wonder why this semi-earthshakng event isn't on MSM
like CNN or FOX (to cite just 2 of the MSM)

i read blurbs on several of my 'financial links'
and even those blogers/authors questioned the reliability of that 'News'


but who am I

That's what I find so interesting about this story. Most 'hoaxes' have the plausible deniability factor.

But how do you do that when the guy walks up to some podium in the next few days?

Wait! Let me guess... It'll be the whole reptilian thing.

Time will tell on this one.

Well, after a couple of searches, I only see reports from Godlikeproductions and Rumormill. Can you really qualify that as confirmation? I find it hard to believe without MSM sources piping up.

Paulson to Deliver Speech on Capital Markets and Economy

To be given on Monday.

That will settle that.

This is the same web page that claimed Paulson was arrested in Germany a few years ago, the same web page that also tried to add validity to Greg Syzmanski's claims of Leo Wanta and the 27 Trillion load of garbage.

This has similar fictional rantings to sell magazines to the ones I have talked about previously. Quote it at your peril as Im pretty confident any article it presents is not based on fact but of dubious quality.

I quite agree.

I was not familiar with the source, but after seeing the items printed there...

im pretty sure if he was dead then the msm would have reported it.

i wouldn't trust any story coming from that dubious source as good as they sometimes may sound but perhaps it's a 'joke' hoax in response to the 'paul is dead' text that was splashed across the screen during a recent ron paul interview on tv. that would be my guess in this case anyway.

Here is a video I found on Break,

This guys seems to think they tried to prove he is alive by producing a hologram effect.

Check this out, it's worth watching.
