Yesterday, a reader sent me a link with some amazing content. It was posted at the examiner.com website and cited quickly by many other websites. In a Google search just conducted, this article was “spiked” from the original website where it appeared. I just did a Google search for it at other websites, but all the ones I checked were linked to the original article and all such links were “dead.” My gut instinct tells me someone doesn’t want you to know what was in that article…but I’ll tell you.
The article was entitled “Libor scandal grows as the fathers of two mass murderes were to testify.” I printed the article out and it made a startling statement regarding the recent horrific shooting at a school in Newtown, CT and an earlier theater shooting at Aurora, CO. The article, authored by Kenneth Schortgen, Jr., stated that “both fathers of the shooters were allegedly expected to testify in the Libor scandal that rocked the banking world in June.” What a coincidence! Both of the shooters’ fathers were so close to the insider scandal that “Both men were to testify before the US Senate in the ongoing Libor [London Interbank Offered Rate] scandal.”
The article added that “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. For similar events on the magnitude of both Aurora and Newtown to hold a connection to one of the greatest financial scandals in the history of finance is astronomically slim in regards to coincidence. In fact, neither shooter had a history with firearms proficiency and the outcome of each shooting showed an expertise many trained military personnel could not achieve.”
I wonder if these shootings resulted in the indefinite postponement of either of these “insider elite” fathers having to testify before the US Senate “under oath” about the parties and events connected with the Libor scandal. This scandal is so huge that, if fully investigated (as it should be), it could result in many elite global bankers and politicians being indicted and perhaps being sentenced to prison. The article originally also stated: “This leaves the question of where they [the shooters] got their training, or if there was another plot involved which allowed these young men to perform the actions they did with such precision (emphasis added).”
Isn’t it also coincidental, that with so many trillions of dollars and insider careers at stake, the article was scrubbed from the internet very soon after it was posted? Maybe the author of that article hit way closer to home than anyone was expecting. What else would explain the article being scrubbed so quickly from the Internet? If it was flat out wrong, a retraction from the website that posted it would have sufficed. However, spiking it off the Internet without any comment simply gives it more credibility, in my opinion.
I’ve enclosed, in the first link and second link, two of the recommended links to this article which came up in a Google search. These links cite a few sentences from the initial article. Since I cannot currently find an active link to the story, I’ve pasted the article below as I cut and pasted it earlier when I printed it.
I will decline to make any substantive commentary of my own about this story. The author of the article is quoted by me above, and I think readers can make their own conclusions about this very surprising (and coincidental) link to one of the biggest insider banking scandals in history. See his hard-hitting expose article below.
In the wake of the mass murders that took place in Newtown, Connecticut on Dec. 14, information on the shooter, and his family, is slowly being discovered by law enforcement other sources. One interesting connection to the tragedy that took place at the Sandy Hook school is that the father of Adam Lanza has a connection to the theater shootings that took place in Aurora earlier this year by James Holmes.
Both fathers of the shooters were allegedly expected to testify in the Libor scandal that rocked the banking world in June.
The father of Newtown Connecticut school 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 Sentate in the ongoing LIBOR scandal. The London Interbank Offered Rate, known as Libor, is the average interest rate at which banks can borrow from each other. 16 international banks have been implicated in this ongoing scandal, accused of rigging contracts worth trillions of dollars. HSBC has already been fined $1.9 billion and three of their low level traders arrested.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a motive and a link. This coincidence is impossible to overlook. Two mass shootings connected to LIBOR.

Libor is the internal banking interest rate that major financial institutions determine each day for lending purposes between each facility. This rate is then translated to the interest rates 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.
For similar events on the magnitude of both Aurora and Newtown to hold a connection to one of the greatest financial scandals in the history of finance is astronomically slim in regards to coincidence. In fact, neither shooter had a history with firearm proficiency, and the outcome of each shooting showed an expertise many trained military personnel 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.
While the coming days will bring forth more pertinent information on the motives, access, and failures of both community and family to diagnose the events leading up to Adam Lanza’s killing spree, one thing is becoming disturbingly clear. The connections between the Aurora massacre, and the one that took place in Newtown on Friday, may have far more ramifications to the people involved in the Libor scandal than anyone could imagine.
