Another Bankster Death…And Some High Octane
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
March 6, 2020

On the 20th of last month, a story was reported in Zero Hedge that many of you sent to me, concerning the strange death of a Swiss banker – Mr. Jason Varnish – in a very weird skiing accident. Now, at the time, I did not blog about the accident, because there was not much known about the incident, nor about Mr. Varnish. This was strange, I thought, since in the case of many of the bizarre deaths of bankers in the past few years – many of them blogged about here on this site – there was enough to suggest that in some of those cases, perhaps, the bankers in question had some knowledge of high financial skulllduggery and fraud, and perhaps even of the machinations of what I have been calling the “hidden system of finance”, due to their positions within their respective banks. Now, before we go any further with filling in some context on that hidden system, here’s the Zero Hedge story to which I refer:

Credit Suisse MD Dies In Freak Accident After Slipping Through Chairlift And Being Suffocated By His Own Jacket

Now, as the article notes, Mr. Varnish was very highly placed at Credit Suisse, and his death “by asphixiation on a ski lift” is…well a little “unusual”:

Almost exactly 10 years ago, we detailed the tragic death of Gerard Reilly in a skiing accidentthe point man on Repo 105, the point person for E&Y’s “investigation” into the Matthew Lee whistleblower campaign, Lehman’s Level 2 and Level 3 asset valuation, the brain behind the idea to spin off Lehman’s commercial real estate business, Lehman’s Archstone investment, and likely so much more:

[Reilly] was skiing alone on the John’s Bypass Trail, a connector between the Excelsior and Lower Cloudspin ski runs that’s accessible from either the Cloudsplitter Gondola or the Summit Quad chairlift, when he left the trail and hit a tree. A skier following behind Reilly witnessed the incident and contacted ski patrol.

…not only was he was a decent skier but he was over 6’4″ tall and wearing a helmet – it may always be a mystery to us how he succumbed to his injuries so fast…

The reason we bring this up is that an investigation continues in Colorado after the death of a skier in the popular tourist town of Vail.

The skier, 46 year old Jason Varnish of New Jersey, was Credit Suisse Managing Director, and served as the bank’s global head of prime services risk

In what can only be described as a freak accident, Varnish reportedly died of asphyxia and his death was ruled an accident after he slipped through the seat of the lift and his coat got caught. The incident took place at the Blue Sky Basin section of the Vail Ski Resort.

The skier reportedly suffocated to death after being “caught in a chairlift” and the incident marks about the 8th skier death in Colorado this year, which marks a pace slightly lower than last year, according to the Washington Post.

But,  more seriously, we are sure it’s just a coincidence that 10 years after the man at the center of the Lehman debacle dies mysteriously, a very senior Credit Suisse MD dies in a freak accident as the bank faces ongoing issues from its ‘spying’ scandal (just 5 months after ‘the spy’ was found dead.)

As I stated, at the time I did not blog about this banker death, because I intuited at the time that there might be more to the story, so as I often do in such cases, I let this article stay in my “finals folder” long after the article had been sent to me, until more information might become available.

Well, that “more information” might just have done so, and we’ll get back to that in a moment, but first, we need to fill in the context a bit, and revisit my concept of a hidden system of finance. I’ve outlined this idea in two of my books (Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations and Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations), and have spoken about it publicly in various interviews, and at the 2014 Secret Space Program Conference in San Mateo, California. The essence of my idea is that some Axis loot, recovered secretly by the USA after World War Two, and some of it remaining in post-war “Axis” hands, was used as a secret slush fund to finance covert operations and black research projects. On the American end of things, and following the research of Peggy and Sterling Seagrave in their book Gold Warriors, I posited that the US National Security Council was put in charge of this loot by President Truman, thus placing the US Intelligence “community” in the banking business. This reserve of Axis loot was moved into participating prime banks of the West, and could function as a secret reserve on the banks’ ledgers, capable of being rehypothecated over and over again, creating massive amounts of liquidity. On the “Axis” side of things, I further speculated that some of this money was re-laundered back into “Axis” hands for the rebuilding of Europe, and hence this rationalized the participation of the Rockefellers and their interests, and of Prince Bernard of the Netherlands and former Nazi banker and Deutschebank CEO (after the war), Dr. Herman Josef Abs, in the early Bilderberg meetings. Additionally, part of my speculations included the idea of a hidden bond market – suggested by the various bearer bonds scandals of the past years – to move massive amounts of money secretly. This money, plus the amount of gold recovered from Imperial Japan’s “Operation Golden Lily”, could also be used to rig various markets, and especially bullion markets.

With that in mind, back to Mr. Varnish’s strange death-by-chairlift-accident, a story that seems in its outlines to have all the best elements of an “Arkancide”. But there’s now a story that, to my high octane speculative mind, might have a great deal to do with Mr. Varnish having been “Epsteined”, and it’s this (shared by G.B., to whom a big thank you):

List found of 12,000 Nazis in Argentina with money in Swiss bank

And here’s the meat of the article:

An investigation by Argentine investigator Pedro Filipuzzi revealed a list of 12,000 Nazis in Argentina that apparently have money in accounts at the Zurich-based Credit Suisse investment bank, the Simon Wiesenthal Center said in a statement.

The list, which Filipuzzi gave to Simon Wiesenthal Center’s international relations director Dr. Shimon Samuels and Latin America director Dr. Ariel Gelblung, was found in an old storage room at the former Buenos Aires Nazi headquarters.

“We believe very probable that these dormant accounts hold monies looted from Jewish victims, under the Nuremberg Aryanization laws of the 1930s,” the center said in a letter addressed to Credit Suisse vice president Christian Küng.

The center added that, “We are aware that you already have claimants as alleged heirs of Nazis in the list,” and requested access to the bank’s archives in order to somehow settle the issue.

“Mr. Küng, in 1997, we organized a major conference in Geneva, together with Winterthur Insurance, on ‘Restitution: A Moral Debt to History,’” Samuels noted, according to the statement. “A few weeks before our conference, I received a telephone call from Credit Suisse, requesting to co-sponsor our gathering… In the spirit of the conference’s title, I asked for access to spoliated accounts for our expert researcher. There was no response.

“The current story and the remaining assets, arguably looted, of 12,000 Nazis will, we hope, be viewed differently, for the good name of Credit Suisse.”

Twelve thousand Nazi accounts, in other words, might still be on the books of Credit Suisse, in active accounts, for as the article alleges, heirs to these accounts have apparently stepped forward as alleged claimants. Would Mr. Varnish, as Managing Director of Credit Suisse and its “global head of prime services risk” have known of these accounts? Very likely. Additionally, he might very well know something about how all that money was used since the Second World War, and those hidden tentacles probably run very far, and very deep.

Which raises the subject of his death-by-ski-lift, for if one assumes this was not accidental, but rather a murder, then who had the motive? Here two high octane speculative possibilities(and certainly not the only possible ones) come to mind: Israel itself, which might have intelligence reasons to believe Mr. Varnish was connected to what I have called the postwar “Nazi International”. On the other hand, it might be that Nazi International itself which did the deed, perhaps having intelligence that the story of those 12,000 accounts had been tracked down and was about to break.

For the moment, my money is on the second of those alternatives, for as of this writing, while Mr. Varnish very likely knew of those accounts, there’s no data so far as I can tell to suggest he was involved in that International’s activities.

See you on the flip side…

Yet Another Bankster Death, With 2 Interpretations
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
December 4, 2019

There’s been another mysterious banker “suicide”, and this one really has me wondering, because there appear to be two major lines of interpretation being advocated as an explanation for this banker being suicided. And one of those explanations really has me wondering if, perhaps, finally, we have a clue that might explain all the other ones that have occurred in the past few years.  We’ll get back to that, because it’s the core of today’s high octane speculation. The first version of the explanation emerges in the Zero Hedge article covering the story, the version which was spotted by many readers here and passed along to me (thank you to all of you). The second story, likewise, was spotted by many people and passed along (and again, a big thank you to all of you who did so). What was unusual is that there were no overlaps in who passed along each article. No one or group of individuals passed along both articles.

Both articles concern the recent “suicide” of Deutsche Bank senior executive, Tom Bowers, but each article implies a very different motivation for it:

Senior Ex-Deutsche Bank Exec Linked To Millions In Donald Trump Loans Commits Suicide

There you have it: Mr. Bowers was so senior that he made Deutsche Bank loans both to current U.S. President Donald Trump, and to Jeffrey Epstein. While that may seem like two very unrelated tracks, I strongly suspect – and here comes our trademark high octane speculation – that they are not. According to Mr. Trump, he and Epstein did meet on occasions, but Mr. Trump states that after receiving complaints about Epstein, he (Trump) banned him from his properties. To my mind, it’s a plausible explanation, because as some readers here are aware, I once worked as a manager in a casino, and when customers became unruly, or there were sufficient complaints about them, they were indeed banned from the facility.

However, there’s a deeper and more disturbing connection here that forms the core of my high octane speculation not only about the “suicide” of Mr. Bowers, but also that might explain the mysterious deaths of all those other bankers over the past few years, for which there have been a variety of speculations including not a few from me. In respect to this core speculation, Epstein’s relationship with Deutsche Bank – which seems to host a variety of questionable clients, from Epstein to the Bin Ladens – I suspect may be a profound clue to those banker deaths. Mr. Trump, as some may be aware, signed an executive order regarding human/sex trafficking, making the assets of traffickers open to seizure. Additionally, President Trump has on occasion made comments about the extent of human trafficking to the media. That both would have dealings with Deutsche Bank is to my mind quite revealing. Indeed, the second article makes clear that Epstein’s relationship with large banks, particularly Citi and Deutsche, followed Mr. Bowers, when he left Citi for Deutsche and then left Deutsche in 2015. The date is significant, for this would place the Deutsche-Epstein-Bowers connection in a time period after Epstein’s 2008 plea deal in Florida for sexual solicitation of underaged girls. In other words, Deutsche and Bowers made loans to Epstein when the latter’s conviction and plea deal was public record.

To conduct what  is in essence a global criminal trade in human beings for sex, slavery, and possibly other nefarious activities such as organ harvesting and so on, would imply at some point the willing participation of prime banks. As I’ve previously speculated, this would involve “inventory control” and the collateralization of human beings themselves, and perhaps even the use of “off-the-books” securities (bearer bonds, anyone?) to reflect those flows. These would be disguised by codes. For example, in my books on the hidden system of finance (Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations and Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations) I pointed out that in certain criminal underground circles, the word “gold” does not refer to bullion, but rather to drugs. Similar codes could be used to indicate humans. Thus, the “gold-backed” bearer bonds of the bearer bonds scandals might indicate that those bonds were collateralized by the drug trade, not actual bullion. You get the picture.

Which leads me to the central question of my speculation: Could the deaths of all the bankers in recent years be because they either discovered this trafficking network  being concealed in mysterious securities trades, ledger entries, insurance policies, and so on? Or alternatively, could they have been involved with it? In this respect, the common interface of Deutsche Bank both with Mr. Trump and Epstein may be revealing why the central and prime bank world is so “anxious” about Mr. Trump.

Granted, this speculation is off the end of the twig, but I would aver that by the same token, the Epstein-Deutsche-Trump connection does raise some significant questions; it implies a pattern that might be there, especially given the depth and breadth of Epstein’s connections to the wealthy and powerful, and the allegations that continue to surface regarding his “network” and its powerfully-connected sponsors and associates.
