Surely, this is not all a coincidence.
We must remember that CIA is oficially & unoficially "interested" in Bitcoin. That may mean many things. They may be trying to either manipulate the currency to their advantage or destroy it, or perhaps both.
These guys aren't stupid.
Indeed, the CIA forced Luke-Jr to argue about BIP16. They also forced tradehill to suspend. Or, sometimes similar things happen at the same time, maybe even as a result of eachother. Meaning one thing on the list that OP posted could've caused another item in the list. Or, it's the CIA.
Also you spelled your name wrong, it's Harbinger: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/harbinger
