    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

I wonder if he went on a binge to celebrate the downfall, but he overdosed.  


If they had knew... They would have given this guy a promotion, would have drunk himself to death and would have revealed nothing.

"there are probably dozens who know as much if not more than he did."


This is precisely he was suicided to keep others quite.

Well, not in August, 1814. Or in December, 1913, for that matter; but I get the idea.

He is dead because he is not alive anymore. So what killed him? A lack of aliveness sufficient enough to cause expiration.

Whatever happened to Julian Assange and Wikileaks having info on some big financial institution?

At least people are waking up to the big money backed media gorilla that is constantly shaking down the politicians and public servants while promoting failed policies to milk the plebs.

There is no greater organized crime than these kleptocrats, banksters, PhDs.

Never happy to read about this kind of thing. Sounds like, at minimum, he worked an edge and had a rough life. If you do this kind of thing, you know what's what and what is possible. This applies to both an addict's lifestyle and being a whistleblower. He ran it right up to the edge and went over. No judgement in this. I've had some close calls myself. 

Condolences to his family. Gratitude to him for having the balls to tell the truth. Hope losing his life was NOT the direct cost.

My wife laughed just two days ago when I said "I bet you will see people dying/found dead in a few days" with regard to the NOW Scandal.


She also laughed when I started buying GOLD (physical) a few years ago...

If true, I could see a murder over that. Meanwhile, if he was murdered, I don't think us plebes would be able to easily track down the info that they were trying to keep hidden.

This circus is there to distract the peasants from the on-going problems and the coming major kinetic action. Murdoch is taking one for the 'Team'.
