The LIBOR Scandal and Two Shooters

by Al Benson Jr.

Just today I read an article by Kenneth Schortgen Jr. about the LIBOR scandal, which up to now I had not paid much attention to. In his article, posted on  Mr. Schortgen noted: “Libor is the internal banking interest rate that major financial institutions determine each day for lending purposes between each facility. This rate is then transferred to the interest rate used for mortgages, student loans, credit cards, and nearly every interest bearing loan in the world. Manipulation of the Libor rate has resulted in hundreds of billions, if not trillions of dollars in fraudulent payments made by billions of customers throughout the financial world.” Sounds like someone is getting ripped off and someone else is making big bucks out of it. You might say “what else is new” and you’d be right, except this situation has some interesting sidelines.

It turns out that the fathers of both of the recent shooters, the one in Newton, Connecticut and the one in Aurora, Colorado were supposed to testify at hearing regarding the LIBOR scandal.

Mr. Schortgen observed that: “The father of Newton, Connecticut shooter Adam Lanza is Peter Lanza who is a VP and Tax Director at GE Financial. The father of Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes is Robert Holmes, the lead scientist for the credit score company FICO. Both men were to testify before the US Senate in the ongoing LIBOR scandal.” Undoubtedly sheer coincidence, right?

Supposedly neither of these kids had a history of any skill with firearms, yet both showed according to Schortgen, “…an expertise many trained military personal could not achieve. This leaves the question of where they got their training, or if there was another plot involved which allowed these young men to perform the actions they did with such precision.” Mr. Schortgen’s article is worth reading. It’s just a little over two pages long.

Another good article I read on this was posted by Short Little Rebel on  also on December 16th. This one is also worth reading. The writer asked several questions as to why the media did not ask more questions. She also noted that there had been talk about a second shooter, but that seems to have been quickly quieted down and now we can expect the Obama administration’s gigantic push for more gun control to follow hard on the heels of this latest event.

The headline for Mr. Schortgen’s article noted that the fathers of the two shooters “were to testify.” Does that mean they will no longer testify?

If that ends up being the case, will we have seen the classic Marxist pattern of accomplishing two goals with one action? Just something to think about.

  1. These conspiracies have been showing up in my news feed all day. I have searched for support of the fathers’ companies being linked to the LIBOR scandal and have only found this claim debunked by Snopes. Since the entire conspiracy hinges upon this connection, it seems pretty important to well validate this claim.

      • He’s right, Google only yeilds true stories in a search, it’s a fact, run it through your “Snopes” Mr. Smarty Pants.

    • I have checked several pages tonight to see what was being said and from what I can tell it is running about 50-50 as to whether this is true on not. The man whose article I took my info from is definitely legitimate. You can check him out on the Internet. On the other hand, if someone in govt. says it is not true, I am afraid anymore I don’t trust anything govt. sources have to say. They’ve been caught lying outright too many times. I will just watch it and see what develops.

      • “I have checked several pages tonight to see what was being said and from what I can tell it is running about 50-50 as to whether this is true on not.” If you’re life depended on your story I wouldn’t place that bet, just sayin’.

  2. The Examiner is a pennies per view operation. It is not surprising that a sensationalist theory would be posted there.

    I found an Examiner article by Joann Sceffler, Cincinnati Pop Examiner. Here is her author bio:

    Here is her article

    Here is her source, Before It’s News

    Here are their reporter qualifications, taken from the site: “Before It’s News® is a community of individuals who report on what’s going on around them, from all around the world.
    Anyone can join.
    Anyone can contribute.
    Anyone can become informed about their world.”

    And their source was Fabian4Liberty. He gives his evidence on his website. He claims to have connections in the finance industry who confirm both men were slated to speak.

    So I think I found the origin if the conspiracy, and ultimately it comes down to the word of this man who does not name his sources (assuming he is truthful and did hear it from primary sources).

    Kind of interesting to track an Internet Conspiracy!

  4. There it is, you cracked the case, “Supposedly neither of these kids had a history of any skill with firearms, yet both showed according to Schortgen, “…an expertise many trained military personal could not achieve. ” According to Schortgen, and who is he? Ex-Navy Seal, CIA Director, Chief of Police, SWAT Team member. Well that solves it. He says they had expertise, so there it is. I did not realize it took a lot of expertise for a human to point a gun at another human, pull the trigger and that’s when the whole “expertise” magic kicks in. They skillfully guide that bullet right into the other human in just oh so the right way. Based on what evidence is the statement you repeated? Please cite hard evidence. Thanks.

    • Why are you so invested in this not being true? Is this personal for you? Because there are a lot more pointers to this being closer to the truth than what the media is reporting, I guarantee it. We may not have all the facts yet, but this is standard fare for this government.

  5. Adam Lanza, with zero history of violence put on a mask and very efficiently killed 27 people in Sandy Hook? and then himself? but couldn’t handle getting his hair cut? Yeah sure.

    Also, this –> Just 3 days before last week’s tragic massacre of 27 people in Newtown, Connecticut, Israel Weapons Industries (IWI) proudly announced the opening of its U.S. subsidiary in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

    IWI will now further saturate the market for guns in the United States by offering U.S. “shooting enthusiasts” several varieties of the TAVOR semi-automatic rifle and the UZI sub-machine gun, according to its CEO Uri Amit.

    Speaking at a vigil in Newtown on Sunday, President Obama said: “We can’t tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change…Surely, we can do better than this.” (SO TAKE THAT BIBI),_IWI_US.htm

    I’m thinking Israel set up the shootings to help promote their new US gun business AND get back at Obama for not supporting Bibi’s war of terror on Palestine. Israel does have a long history of killing Gaza children with no compassion.


  6. There are other questions about this event that bears questioning. For example, the Emilie Parker Fund on Facebook was set up the very day the shooting took place (December 14, 2012)…reportedly (on the Facebook page) even BEFORE the parents knew if little Emilie was alive or not. Does this strike anyone else as strange?

    Also, I heard on our local news Monday that funerals were being held for many of the victims of Friday’s tragedy; according to the HuffPost, there were still funerals being held as late as Thursday. I am wondering how the authorities have been able to collect all the evidence necessary so quickly? In a video I saw on YouTube ( published December 19th, the Sandy Hook medical examiner said that, “the assailant and his mother will be finished up tonight, and I’ll do those [reports?] tomorrow morning.” He also said that, “All the wounds so far have been from the long weapon,” yet the rifle was the weapon found in the car.

    I’m really NOT a ghoul, nor do I wish harm on innocents. I also don’t have a particularly “inquiring mind”; however, when something stinks to high heaven, it’s hard to ignore it. It’ll be interesting to see if the LIBOR connection pans out or not, but even if it doesn’t, there’s plenty more about this case (and the other sensational cases distracting us from other, even more dire, issues) to keep us wondering.
