Since the economic crash in 2008, much has surfaced as to how it happened, who was involved, the reaction of regulators, The President and Congress. What amazed me in the months following the implosion, nothing seemed to materialize, either in the way of criminal actions or new regulations.
It was at this point, I began my blog. I needed to look deeply into the situation and see what I could discover. I have written over 100 articles outlining my findings. What I have spent nearly the last two months doing was following and trying to validate some amazing stories that were circulating the internet concerning the financial cabal and the fact it was under attack by some unknown forces.
The whole story was first introduced by Benjamin Fulford, who was a Forbes Business Editor in Japan. You can learn all about Benjamin here, http://benjaminfulford.net/. To say the least, Benjamin’s story is on the surface, was too much to believe. Although I must say, over time, I began to see that while I could not accept the whole of Benjamin’s story, there were events unfolding in real-time, that were similar to Benjamin’s previous statements as to what would occur in the near future.
Then last month, the well known writer and a New York Best Selling Author, David Wilcox did an exhaustive piece on his blog which you can find here, Financial Tyranny – Defeating the Greatest Cover-Up of All Time. Again, most of this article was mind-blowing to say the least, but again there was hard evidence presented for some of the key points that was undeniable, but accepting the whole premise was a bit too much for me.
So for me the bottom line was there has to be proof that this financial cabal is collapsing. This started my two months of investigating on my own. What I found I have outlined in detail below. Forgive the long article, but to see it all, you must know it all.
Since September of 2011, I have been tracking and following the major players in the global financial arena. If there was any weight to what Fulford and Wilcox were saying, the rats would be jumping ship. Honestly, I thought I would find normal patterns of revolving doors and resignations. I will let you be the judge of what I uncovered as a matter of public record and verified reporting. I started first in the US.
Over 20,000 resignations/house arrests are visible using data from the SEC Securities and Exchange Commission. The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires that publicly traded companies must report to the SEC whenever members of the Board or certain officers resign. Also, the SEC has a database named EDGAR that is open to the public. After a little research, what was discovered is that corporations must report said resignations on Form 8-K, Item 5.02. From there, it was a simple matter of searching only Form 8-Ks within a specific range of dates, and including the boolean search terms “Resigns” and “Resignation”.
From the start of 2008 to the second quarter of 2011 the resignations remained steady @ about 2000 per quarter. Suddenly in the 3rd quarter of 2011 they increased by 50% to 3000 for that quarter. (That’s an extra 1000). Then in the 4th quarter they jumped to 7000. (That’s an additional extra 5000 resignations). Now without the full quarter results for the first quarter of 2012 they are up to 16,000. (That’s an extra 14,000 resignations & increasing fast). That’s a total of 20,000+ extra resignations that no one is reporting in news papers & nothing of course in the major media!
OK, well that is interesting, but how does this hold-up on the international scene. First of all I want to thank americankabuki.blogspot.com and Gabriel@ Facebook Global Mass Resignations for doing an immense amount of research that was invaluable to my effort, and I am indebted to their willingness to share it so freely.

- 9/01/11 (USA NY) Bank of New York Mellon Chief Robert P. Kelly Resigns in a Shake-UP. Bank of New York Mellon’s chief executive and chairman, Robert P. Kelly, stepped down late Wednesday because of “differences in approaches to managing the company,” the bank said. Pressure on the bank has been growing for months. Kelly’s departure — the sudden, shocking resignation of a star CEO (editor note: #2 among CEO compensation in the banking industry)– has received remarkably little attention or explanation.
- 9/06/11 (BELGIUM) Dexia confirmed that its CEO Stefaan Decraene had left the company. Its exposures to sovereign debt in the PIIGS nations are larger than its core Tier 1 capital. Dexia’s CEO Resigns Suddenly – by Erin Davis | 06 Sep 11
On Monday, Dexia confirmed that its CEO Stefaan Decraene had left the company and will be replaced by Jos Clijsters, an executive at the bank since January and a former senior executive at the failed bank Fortis.
We continue to think that Dexia is the most troubled publicly traded bank in the eurozone outside of Greece. Its exposures to sovereign debt in the PIIGS nations are larger than its core Tier 1 capital, it has an inadequate deposit base to support its loan book, and it is overly leveraged, in our opinion. We think Dexia is likely to undertake a highly dilutive capital raise, and wonder if it might come sooner rather than later given the management change. http://goo.gl/vuhvd
- 9/09/11 (GERMANY) European Central Bank (ECB) governing board member Jürgen Stark, who has resigned. The dramatic resignation of a senior European central banker sent stock markets plunging, amid fears that Greece is on the brink of default and the fragile consensus in Berlin over support for the ailing Italian and Spanish economies was close to disintegration.
Bank stocks, down more than 5% in some cases, were the worst affected as the Dow Jones dropped almost 3% to below 11,000. European exchanges joined the panic with the FTSE falling more than 100 points to 5230. Speculation that several French and German banks would soon embark on massive capital raising schemes to offset write-offs on holdings of Greek debt, added to the febrile atmosphere. Stark “and his wife, Christine, whom he married in 1973, have a retirement house on the Baltic Sea. http://goo.gl/t83S4

- 9/18/11 (JORDAN) Central Bank governor Faris Sharaf resigns over policy. They did not disclose the reasons for the surprise resignation of Sharaf, who took the five-year post last November.
But bankers and some officials say Sharaf was enraged by an appeasement policy adopted by the government to win over disgruntled public sector employees in the wake of Arab unrest that endangered the country’s financial and monetary stability.
Bankers say Sharaf, a highly respected financial expert who had senior posts in the banking and financial industry, has increasingly voiced privately his alarm at the government’s expansionary fiscal policy. A bit of fuel was added to the fire when Faris Sharaf’s mother, Leila Sharaf, resigned from her post in the Senate the very next day, stating that she will not be part of a “corrupted government”. Leila claims her son was “removed” for attempting to combat corruption and also voiced her displeasure over the way her son was “removed” from office, claiming that the bank was surrounded by armed guards who supposedly were there to keep him from entering. http://goo.gl/8yU5N
- 9/20/11 (SCOTLAND) SCOTTISH WIDOWS (RETIREMENT INVESTMENT SAVINGS FUND) There could be no Scottish representative on the board of Lloyds Banking Group, owner of Bank of Scotland, in future after it announced the departure of Lord Sandy Leitch, the chairman of Scottish Widows and group deputy chairman. Less than a year after Labour first won power in 1997, Sandy Leitch was invited to No10 for breakfast with other business leaders. He went on to run several Labour projects, becoming one of Mr Blair’s most trusted business advisers. His reward came in 2004 – the same year he left Zurich – when he was made a Labour peer, becoming Baron Leitch of Oakley in Fife. The multi-millionaire entrepreneur was introduced into the Lords by Mr Blair’s chief fundraiser, Lord Levy. But Lord Leitch, 60, has maintained links with Gordon Brown’s government, donating £5,000 last year to his leadership campaign. http://goo.gl/Dx8qs

Whew! So after all of this what is the truth? It does appear that the financial elite are in some kind of retreat. Also you can a pattern where the further we come forward to the present, the more major CEO and board members are involved, in other words, the most senior management. Also odd was the number of en masse resignations of board members. What is disturbing is the fact that I tracked everyone of these people stepping down, really hoping to see that a majority of them were just making “career moves”, but exactly the opposite was true for the majority. Words and phrases such as, “sudden resignation”, “unexpected move” “surprising” were often contained in the news articles chronicling the moves.
I went one step further to see if I could independently verify where these folks were going. Here is where it gets a bit murky and interesting. A number of these very successful people in their prime are “retiring”, “going to follow personal pursuits”, “personal matters”, and they are NOT resurfacing.
Some of this information is leaking into MSM now within the last few weeks, but truly this phenomena is being grossly under-reported, no doubt.
In summary, as I finished this article, I asked myself one question, and I think it is the same question we all ask when it comes to “high finance”, so what? What can I do about it? Then it hit me, now I know details and I do believe there is a financial cabal that does act in concert with one another and someone or group, or government has uncovered some extremely damaging information about this financial conspiracy, and they are trying to get them under control. What we can do about it is insist that our governments start doing their job and regulate these guys and prosecute those who have violated criminal laws. This should be a MAJOR platform of any presidential candidate and we should insist that Congress begin acting now. Our voices really do count. Just ask any woman of late, right Ladies?
