SecondMarket, Pantera outbid in Bitcoin auction ITWeb

A possible script: Mark Karpeles, the new Snowden

This is only my precognition, in other words it is only one possible script among plenty. So please read through it with skepticism.
I am feeling that the shadowy part of the US gov wants to get the coins stored in Gox for free and illegally. There are a couple of elements that make me think so:
So Gox's coins (our coins) have not been stolen. They have been confiscated and the "US gov" does not want Mark to disclose the information that the "US gov" stole our coins.
Now, a new rumor says that Mark flew to HK. That would be consistent with a situation where he would risk arrest or extradition if he decided to stay in Japan.
Going to HK, knowing that China is at war (financial war) with the US would make perfect sense. In HK Mark would get protection in exchange of information. The same thing happened with Snowden and Russia.
Snowden revealed the dirty surveillance of the NSA. Mark could reveal the dirty tricks of the FED, in other words the dirty ticks of the financial agency of the US.
From there, very soon, around March 11th this year (my precognition gives me that date), the whole truth will be disclosed. The whole Bitcoin community would know that the coins have been confiscated illegally.
Under those circumstance, I predict a huge division among the bitcoin community happening around the same time:
Again this is only what my gut feelings are trying to say to me. At that stage this is only a possible script of what would happen over the coming days.

I wanted to try to collect all the big news since the crash (using Dec 1st) so we could discuss whether it's been priced in yet. My feeling is that there's much more good news than bad.
Good News:
Bad News:

And finally a similar post by DTanner from the start of the last bubble.
