Former Deutsche Bank Executive Who Oversaw Trump's Loans Dies by Suicide
Source: Law and Crime

Thomas Bowers, identified as a former Deutsche Bank executive who signed off on controversial loans to President Donald Trump, died last week after apparently taking his own life at 55.

According to Forensic News‘ Scott Stedman, “One source who has direct knowledge of the FBI’s investigation into Deutsche Bank said that federal investigators have asked about Bowers and documents he might have. Another source who has knowledge of Deutsche Bank’s internal structure said that Bowers would have been the gatekeeper for financial documents for the bank’s wealthiest customers.

The news of Bowers’s death was initially shared late Tuesday afternoon by New York Times reporter David Enrich.

I’ve learned that Tom Bowers, a former senior @DeutscheBank executive, died last week at 55 in Malibu, Calif.
I knew him. It’s very sad.

— David Enrich (@davidenrich) November 26, 2019

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s initial report attributes Bowers’s death to suicide by hanging.

🐘 Republicans don't DO rules, unless those rules benefit them. Of course the NYT Ministry of Truth (SEE: "1984" by George Orwell) will never come right out and say that because the specialty of the USA's version of the Ministry of Truth is to arrive at ANYTHING BUT 4 when they add 2 plus 2.

We will see how many of those nearly 400 Bills Democrats passed to Moscow Mitch, KNOWING he would deep six them when they passed them, are passed again if Sanders becomes President.

I see the NYT is going to repeat, repeat, repeat the scaremongering about "Trump supporters" (hidden message: Trump supporters = whites ;)) "losing status" until most Americans believe that society dividing and destroying propaganda, thereby enabling Trump's total FASCIST takeover of the USA. It just might work. I'm praying it won't.

Here's what a Sanders Presidency (with a supporting Congress) would bring to the USA, something the NYT flat refuses to repeat, repeat, repeat, which it should repeat, repeat, repeat, but won't because it would put the LIE to that "whites losing status" propaganda they plan to repeat, repeat, repeat until we are all convinced it's "okay" to support Trump's xenophobia and cruel, murderous racism:

'An Unjust Society Is Far Costlier': AOC Says Beware the 😈 Deficit Scolds Who Only Complain About Paying for Stuff When It Benefits People

"I see decisions made every day that cost the American public billions of dollars a year for bogus reasons and 🐘🙊 nobody asks  how we pay for it."

byEoin Higgins, staff writer

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday asked voters to question why U.S. politicians and pundits only consider the cost of government programs when those programs help the public and least fortunate—and ignore price tags on policies that benefit the most wealthy and powerful.

"Look out for those in politics who like to label themselves 'fiscally responsible,' yet only seem to care about the price of justice—not the cost of oppression."
—Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez


The New York Democrat made the comments on Twitter, pointing out that members of Congress approved billions in funding for Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

"I see decisions made every day that cost the American public billions of dollars a year for bogus reasons and nobody asks how we pay for it," said Ocasio-Cortez.

Even though her colleagues know about ICE abuses, said Ocasio-Cortez, they voted for funding the agency without a thought.

"I saw members voting YES without even a summary of the bill," said the congresswoman. "Nobody cared then how we'd pay for it. Now 🦍 ICE is setting up fake universities to trap students."

Reporting Wednesday exposed how ICE used a fake university in Michigan to entrap over 250 undocumented students since January.

Reporting from The Detroit Free Press indicated that the dummy school was set up solely to lure students to the U.S. and then deport them:

The students had arrived legally in the U.S. on student visas, but since the University of Farmington was later revealed to be a creation of federal agents, they lost their immigration status after it was shut down in January. The school was located on Northwestern Highway near 13 Mile Road in Farmington Hills and staffed with undercover agents posing as university officials.

...

Attorneys for ICE and the Department of Justice maintain that the students should have known it was not a legitimate university because it did not have classes in a physical location.

New York Times contributor Wajahat Ali tweeted that appeals to fiscal responsibility in government programs is a losing strategy for Democrats.

"Bringing a calculator to a knife fight each time and losing," said Ali.

Ocasio-Cortez suggested it was a question of morality.

"Look out for those in politics who like to label themselves 'fiscally responsible,' yet only seem to care about the price of justice—not the cost of oppression," said the congresswoman. "Everything has a price. And an unjust society is far costlier than one that invests in and values all people."

And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. -- 1 John 2:3-4

There is a special place in Hell for the evil bastards, posing as Christian Pastors, who run the MegaChurches pushing the "greed is good" Prosperity Preaching Doctrine of Demons in the USA. Those evil bastards and their supporters laugh when they read comments like mine. They never did take anything written in the Bible they sanctimoniously (selectively ) quote seriously, so that is no surprise. Here's an Old Testament quote, that you will NEVER hear in a MegaChurch, that describes these "Pastor" Servants of Satan perfectly:

For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them. He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor. He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net. He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones. He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it. Psalm 10:4-11

Yeah, they think the world is their oyster. Something tells me that, very soon now, they are going to be very disappointed. In fact, the way things are going (i.e. ) in the world today, several of those evil bastards on the list will experience a well deserved dose of justice before they finish their blasphemous soul of perdition demonic tour of duty on Earth. 

"With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him."Daniel 11:32

For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. -- Psalm 9:18

Yep. The early Christian Church had their number (Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. -- 1 John 2:15). Real Christians still do.

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. -- 1 John 2:18-19
