Goldman Sachs: Bloodsuckers supreme

Great article on Godlman’s from the always excellent Matt Taibbi in the current issue of Rolling Stone. Here are a few extracts:

"The first thing you need to know about Goldman Sachs is that it's everywhere. The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.

Any attempt to construct a narrative around all the former Goldmanites in influential positions quickly becomes an absurd and pointless exercise, like trying to make a list of everything. What you need to know is the big picture: If America is circling the drain, Goldman Sachs has found a way to be that drain — an extremely unfortunate loophole in the system of Western democratic capitalism, which never foresaw that in a society governed passively by free markets and free elections, organized greed always defeats disorganized democracy."

Goldman's modus operandi for such bloodsucking he explains thus:"Goldman positions itself in the middle of a speculative bubble, selling investments they know are crap. Then they hoover up vast sums from the middle and lower floors of society with the aid of a crippled and corrupt state that allows it to rewrite the rules in exchange for the relative pennies the bank throws at political patronage.

Finally, when it all goes bust, leaving millions of ordinary citizens broke and starving, they begin the entire process over again, riding in to rescue us all by lending us back our own money at interest, selling themselves as men above greed, just a bunch of really smart guys keeping the wheels greased.

They've been pulling this same stunt over and over since the 1920s — and now they're preparing to do it again, creating what may be the biggest and most audacious bubble yet." Here he’s referring to the upcoming carbon credits scam - more below.

In relation to the dotcom bust he says “they did this by setting up what was, in reality, a two-tiered investment system — one for the insiders who knew the real numbers, and another for the lay investor who was invited to chase soaring prices the banks themselves knew were irrational.”

He makes a convincing claim that Goldman orchestrated the whole oil bubble of the last few years “by persuading pension funds and other large institutional investors to invest in oil futures”. This is true, and it’s equally true that Goldman got out before prices collapsed. Pension funds were the losers in this instance.

"After the oil bubble collapsed last fall, there was no new bubble to keep things humming — this time, the money seems to be really gone. So the financial safari has moved elsewhere, and the big game in the hunt has become the only remaining pool of dumb, unguarded capital left to feed upon: taxpayer money."

Taibbi really cuts loose on the incredible situation whereby the authors of the current economic meltdown have been put in charge of its rescue, as I also referred to in this post. Taibbi shows how one of the first acts of the Goldmanites was to get rid of their biggest competitor, Lehman Brothers. This was left to sink while various other non-competitors were kept afloat with taxpayers’ money.

"[Former Treasury Secretary Hank] Paulson elected to let Lehman Brothers — one of Goldman's last real competitors — collapse without intervention. The very next day, Paulson greenlighted a massive, $85 billion bailout of AIG, which promptly turned around and repaid $13 billion it owed to Goldman. Thanks to the rescue effort, the bank ended up getting paid in full for its bad bets: By contrast, retired auto workers awaiting the Chrysler bailout will be lucky to receive 50 cents for every dollar they are owed.

Having seamlessly navigated the political minefield of the bailout era, Goldman is once again back to its old business, scouting out loopholes in a new government-created market with the aid of a new set of alumni occupying key government jobs."

Having pumped millions into Obama’s and other Democrats’ campaigns, they’re already getting payback in possibly the biggest wheeze of all – carbon credits.

I strongly recommend you read the full article here.

And where was the MSM in all of this? In the middle of it, that's where. And no surprise because they’re part of the whole dog-and-pony show. What’s needed is another October Revolution, where these parasitic criminals are left dangling from lampposts

It was jewish bankers like Sachs who were the main orchestrators behind the red "October revolution" in the first place.

What's needed is a complete clampdown on world jewry, ie the banks, and all of their money grabbing capitalist usurious inventions.

These parasites have decimated the west and just want to hammer the final nail in.

We need good regulation, despite what bankers and businessmen will tell you.

That could have stopped all of this unweildy stuff.

Its not the Jews, its just greedy men (several of whom are indeed Jewish), trying to hoard for themselves a la evolutionary psychology. It takes a big man to do whats best for the rest of his country even though he might gain less for himself, but those are the kinds of men we need right now.

Cronyism at Goldman and Wall Street and the Treasury are rampant. We need outside people running these things, and we need to prosecute people who break the rules and put their asses in prison and before or while, and not after they have commited financial murder, like Madoff. We got him, but only after he fleeced many people. We need to be pro-active and nail folks not playing by the rules early in the game.

Hank Paulson, Ben Bernake, Alan Greenspan, Tim Geithner, and especially Robert Rubin have caused much harm to the many while helping themselves and their buddies. Its time to quash this and punish it according to the law.

Here we go again, this is how Hitler started.It is quite simple really if you dont like the way that the man drives the bus DON"T GET ON.People who constantly moan about these things have a simple choice, if you don't like Jewish banks then put your money in a non-Jewish bank.Anyone with historical knowledge can tell you how the catholic church so despised the Jewish banks that they connived to create the Lombard bank.Do you think that they were any better, not a damn, the only difference was that the money went to rome.

What annoys me is that if a crook, embezzler, conman happens to be Jewish, this automatically becomes the prime factor.
If its anyone else, nobody bothers noting that he's a Christian, Buddhist or Hindu - because its totally irrelevant. It only becomes relevant when a Jew is involved.
Take Merrill-Lynch for example. That firm sounds very Irish to me. Does that mean we should tar and feather all the Irish? Do all the Irish automatically become collectively guilty through a very thin association?
That is exactly what always happens with "the Jews" - no individuals, just a collective herd.
BTW, I dont think Jews have much control over Goldman-Sachs anymore.

There aren't any non-jewish banks. Second, I have always advocated for a national banking system outside of private hands.

I know raising the "jewish question" is touchy with some jews on this forum but it's like ignoring the pink elephant in the room otherwise.

Speculative banking was a Jewish invention, like the stick exchange and other terrible usurious inventions of modern capitalism that have robbed billions of the common people. It will continue.
You see, it actually helps to be aware of how other races are out to destroy you and increase their own power at the behest of your own people. That's why I don't trust Jews to look after my money or even to sell me something, and never will. They wish to rob the gentiles blind. If it's the nature of fire to burn then I will take protective measures not to get burnt.

These are the same scumbags behind the world wars, the property and banking collapses, the oil crisis's and mass immigration of so called cheap labor. Rothschild, goldmans sachs etc are at the forefront always of these engineered catastrophes. They make a problem and then sell you back a solution. This is not sustainable to any nation on the contrary it is pure nihilism. All rhetoric and diplomatic "political correctness" aside, we need to take our own countries back or we are fucked being forever be under the financial throes of these feasting parasites. Pure and simple.

To say that there are no non -jewish bankers is absolute twaddle,99% of banks are public companies with shares traded on the Stock Exchanges, the same goes for investment houses, do you think that Barclays,UBS ,Bank of China Standard Chartered Etc are Jewish? I give you a yes for Cantor Fitzgerald that Jewish-Irish private investment company who lost many of their employees in the 9-11 attacks, but surely it is NOT COMPULSORY to invest in them ? The same goes for Bernie Madoff, no-one was ever forced to put their money there.The way I look at it is simple,Ashkenazi Jews are ( By Far) the most intelligent group of humans on the planet with an average I.Q of 12% more than Europeans( according to the Bell Curve) this means that (on average) they will be better off financially and brain power-wise than the average bog trotter fact ! get over it, if you really want to see what happens when the ignorant masses take over from the clever wealthy people just look at Africa.......What a fuck up... this will happen to any country where the ignorant masses think that they are better than the money makers.

Wall St/the City is home to a vast swindle(50% of Wall St happens to be Yid)they do nothing for the real economy, they just inflate the markets for long enough so they can cream the profits until it goes bust.

NO of course not, when you go to work every day it is because you want money LOTS of it, I've never seen anyone go on strike for less money.It is ironic that all working class people go on strike for more money but when someone makes lots of money they are despised.

lol does anyone still believe that the Israeliejit (who claimed to be of Irish blood previously and a then calls us "dumb paddys") is actually here for anything but benevolent reasons? Em Joe you may call us "bog trotters" but why do you have an Irish name? Silly of you isn't it? Good to see a bit of honesty from you kikes now and again though.

That's it compare Irish to the negroes in Africa. The Brits for centuries said that the Irish couldn't rule their own country and only after a long violent exchange of power did we regain a modicum of soveriegnity. Well earned I would say. Fact is, whoever has the majority of world will form the zietgiest of that period and the world will take forms and trends congruent to their outlook. This is now the reign of the merchant third- fourth estate who usurped the first estate - the traditional European nobility. Prevously Europe sustained itself for millenias through a noble aryan outlook congruent to their spirit of fairness, loyality and discipline and sacredness, borders and limits.

Now the Jew has a typical semitic outlook, of obessions with abstractions, hatred, envy and pettiness. The Romans built the last great civilisation this world has ever seen. All done without the need for a numerical system that the jewish merchants introduced to Europe in the 12th century as a means to hoodwink the goyims expenses on credit loans. By virtue of the semitic greedy spirit, it has polluted traditional European societies with unnatural forces and materials that have destroyed environments and people's way of life. Completely ruining everything that once held a superior virtue.

You know I hear alot about the Ashkenazi this the Ashkenazi that. Simply put they are mongrel bastard race of thieves with loyalities to nobody (the mossad's eblem is the vampire bat. Irony really). Their DNA counts a high rate of negro blood (the semitic north african), while the Irish are more closely related to their fellow nordics. Even more so than the majority of Brits.

Sachs is Shepardi by the way not Askehnazi. The "Bell Curve" has already being refuted as tosh, and the motives of its two kike authors are highly questionable.
Also the high rate of marriage to blond gentile women by billionaires doesn't say much for their own kind either.

"Money Talks by Tomislav Sunic"

"Never has money been so important in human relations. Never has it so much affected the destiny of so many Americans and Europeans. Today money has become a civil religion that makes it the centerpiece of discourse in all cultures and subcultures. At European and American cafes, on the Champs Élysées, or on Sunset Boulevard, at concert halls, and even in parliaments, one hears and smells its verbal derivatives such as “moulah,” “dough,” “fric,” “Kohle,” “pognon.” It is a language understood by all. In all segments of their lives Western citizens invariably talk about money and what money can buy. The great respite may come with the current financial crisis, which is finally undoing the liberal system with all its conventional wisdoms and lies. The ongoing economic depression may be the sign that the reign of money and the dictatorship of well-being are coming to an end.

Sounds familiar? No, it does not. In ancient European traditions money and commerce were looked down upon and at times these two activities were in principle forbidden to Europeans. Merchants were often foreigners and considered second class citizens.

I didnt CLAIM to be of Irish blood - I STATED that I am of 100% Irish blood going back generations. And where did I mention "dumb paddys" you illiterate bastard????

As for Negroid blood from North Africa and all the other tripe - you are one ignorant bastard. Jews never originated from North Africa - they went to Morocco, Algeria and the like after they were expelled from Spain over 500 years ago. DNA research shows that that Ashkenazi women derive from just FOUR maternal sources from the MIDDLE EAST.

The claim that 50% of Wall Street are "Yids" is a gross exaggeration. Regardless, everyone has been ecstatic watching their pension funds and savings gaining admirable interest over the past few decades. Noone talked about "the Jews" during that period! That has been forgotten. Through their lack of regulations, laws and solid financial system, the U.S. has brought a financial crisis on the whole world.
But all of a sudden its "the Jews" fault.
That is why Anonymous @ 04 July 2009 07:20 mentioned Hitler. At a time of financial crisis, rising unemployment and general dissatisfaction it is oh so easy to blame "the Jews".

Quoting you: "Now the Jew has a typical semitic outlook, of obessions with abstractions, hatred, envy and pettiness....By virtue of the semitic greedy spirit...they are mongrel bastard race of thieves with loyalities to nobody."
The most eloquent response I can muster is "Fuck you!"

I see from the latest live feed indicator that most of the anti- semitic comments are coming from the US of A.That is as maybe and they are (like others) entitled to their viewpoint. By the way I live in South Africa and have a genuine Irish name and I sympathize with Israel in particular and Jews in general) this explains my viewpoint , also I have been tainted (formed) by a long hard life, beginning by being born during an air raid in London this is at the same time that that Cuban half breed De Velara refused the British permission to base aircraft in Southern Ireland despite the fact that 100% of Ireland's fuel and 60% of their food came from the Atlantic convoys ,( This is not taking anything away from the tens of thousands of brave Irishmen who fought alongside the British)for which many thousands of brave Englishmen gave their lives defending.I was born poor and struggled long and hard to get where I am today ( Fucking filthy rich)and I have noticed in my long hard life that supressed socialism , what I call the politics of envy are at the heart of most of the anti-semitism, in other words JEALOUSY.

"Southern Ireland despite the fact that 100% of Ireland's fuel and 60% of their food came from the Atlantic convoys"

You sure about that. The British wouldn't transport goods for Ireland in their shipping because Ireland was neutral.(in 1941 Britain looked like a beaten docket). One of the "success" stories of 'the Emergency' was the founding of the Irish Shipping Company specifically to transport supplies to Ireland. These ships couldn't be attacked because we were neutral.

People need to look at the long term. Recently there have been a series of articles in German mainstream financial press about the declining value of paper money, including the EURO, since most paper currencies are somehow hooked to the USD via the Bretton Woods system. Prof. Hanke, one of 4 specialists to go to court in order to prevent the change from DM to EURO, summarized all of this in a book he wrote 5 years ago. He predicted the current crash. He also predicts a new world financial system in which Gold will again play a role, though it will not be exclusive.
Since Nixon dumped the Gold Standard, paper money has been losing its value. And since governments feel bound to spend their way out of problems, and can print dollars without having to worry about having enough Gold against it, the mechanism feeds on itself. Thus, built into the post-Bretton Woods system is a self-destructing mechanism which ultimately has to lead to a financial meltdown and thus a new global financial structure. Countries such as China and Russia do not want to be part of the unstable western paper money system. Apparently the incident in China where Chinese economics students openly laughed at Geithner was turning point. The press says that nobody would have laughed at a US treasury sec. before. It shows how little respect there is for Bretton Woods 1.0. Unfortunately the western nations are going to be the losers at Bretton Woods 2.0.

It's commonly referred to as GODWIN'S LAW.

Any poster embedding "Hitler" or "Nazi" into their argument most often doesn't have a valid point to make, so standing on their morally superior soap box, the hope is to guilt-trip you into shutting down any further debate on a political-incorrect topics they're unable to cope with.

...or as the old saying goes, the definition of a "racist" is anybody who’s winning an argument with a liberal -- one who-- is used to setting all the guidelines for what passes for national debate -- is insulated from the effects of his opinions -- and doesn’t much care for being challenged.

Also Henry Makow, Ph.D, a jewish dissident, is an excellent source of info for those wishing to broaden their knowledge on the "jewish" question.

The corporations of late capitalism have long since been dominated by management, not ownership.

So the business wasn't legal back then. But the rates were low, and the contract simplicity itself: Pay up or we break your legs. Is that really so much worse than a humiliating, painful, protracted bloodletting in bankruptcy court and court payment plans?

What will sink Goldman is neither jealosy of its success, nor its like-minded alumni sprinkled in many positions of power and influence.

The funny thing is that the math in Goldman's prop trading platform, from which it has derived much profit of late, is not particularly brilliant or special. If it was hard to replicate, there wouldn't be much point in keeping it secret. It is the utter mundaneness that must be kept secret, to guard the accumulated mystique of the firm.

The brilliance is not in the strategy, but in the execution, in the platform, which includes everything that makes Goldman an institution: Its disciplined culture, history, tradition, alumni in high places, and all the advantages of a large, connected industry incumbent. It adds up to more than the sum of its parts.

People don't resent profits from good math. That's viewed as somehow more earned, the result of admirable individual brain power and work.

They don't even resent group success per se. Look at the game of American football. It has stars, to be sure, but every win is a team effort, and every team member justly shares in the win.

But that is open and honest and obvious to everyone.

What the relative simplicity of Goldman's math does is expose the collective nature of its profits, extending to its alumni and far beyond Goldman itself.

If a football team were to in jest deny its victory was a team effort, it would be laughed at. If it was discovered to be sincere in its denial, it would be thought insane.

In the case of Goldman, it would be denounced as a pack of liars, and blood would be demanded.

After all, there's money involved.

Recently there was a comment by a Goldman representative that the stolen software could be used to manipulate the markets.

Well, during Aleynikov’s July 4 bail hearing, Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Facciponti told a federal magistrate judge that “the bank has raised the possibility that there is a danger that somebody who knew how to use this program could use it to manipulate markets in unfair ways.” ( See a transcript of the hearing here.)

An astute observer noticed that I suppose it is OK for Goldman to use the software to manipulate the markets but not somebody else.

Article in our daily newspaper:

"Blaming the Jews
Obama resorting to tried and tested ploy: Making friends at Jews’ expense
Elyakim Haetzni Published: 07.07.09,
In World War II, most Europeans willingly supported the Nazis. The reason for this, which most people prefer to silence, is that Germany’s main sex appeal was its anti-Semitism.
In Western Europe, the overwhelming Jewish success in all areas of life prompted great jealousy, while in Eastern Europe the masses believed that the Jews are depriving them of the little they have. The Nazis opened the dams – the legal, religious, and social ones – that protected the Jews against these ill feelings; from that point, it was permissible to openly hate Jews, and also to harm them and damage their property.
Europeans today do not feel comfortable to contend with the fact that the “license” to hunt Jews enabled the Nazi murderers to win the hearts and minds of others.
Iranian President Ahmadinejad, who is currently building a nuclear bomb and deflecting the world’s attention through Holocaust denial and threats to exterminate Israel, is also satisfying pent up sentiments. Even though one-third of them were exterminated, the Jews are again “riding high” – in the media, among the world’s billionaires, among Nobel Prize laureates, and in politics. Moreover, the cheeky Jewish state –a success story in its own right – took over Jerusalem.
Besides, the world doesn’t like to see strong and victorious Jews.
Yet how can one find an outlet for these frustrations in the shadow of the Holocaust, and with anti-Semitism no longer being fashionable? There comes Ahmadinejad, and under the guise of slamming “Israel” – a code-word understood by all – openly calls for the extermination of the Jews. Who knows how many hearts he won by utilizing this Nazi patent.
Ahmadinejad’s great success story is the US president’s intention to meet him halfway, after Obama already reached the midpoint on his own, en route to captivating the hearts of nations fed up with the “ugly American”: the Iranians, the Europeans, the South Americans, and the Arabs. And who has been left out? The Jews and their state, of course.
Settlement issue just a pretext
While seeking a way to get rid of the “friendship” that undermines America’s popularity - a friendship that Israel foolishly highlights to an unrealistic extent - Obama reached the same solution: Acquiring friends worldwide at the expense of the Jews, under the pretense of “Israel” of course.
This is good for public opinion, which blames the “Jewish” Wall Street for the economic crisis, and it’s also received well by the Europeans, who have never ceased to hate Jews and are again seeing them flourishing and taking up key posts. Mostly, this is the “Open Sesame” password aimed at those who will not believe in a “different America” until it parts ways with Israel.
Therefore, it will be naïve to think that because of some remote settlement we lost Obama’s “friendship”; the issue of settlement expansion is just a pretext, and others will follow.
Netanyahu was especially pathetic when he spoke, at the home of the US ambassador to Israel, about a sort of eternal covenant with America. After all, every such public embrace requires the embraced party to show rejection in order to shake off the nuisance.
Why aren’t they telling us the truth; the fact that even today the hatred of Jews opens doors worldwide? Because this insight embarrasses and frustrates assimilated Jews, who hope to be “forgiven” for their Jewishness as long as they smear other Jews. It also embarrasses Jews who view Zionism as a way to assimilate as a collective. Both these groups hoped, in vain, that Zionism will erase the notion of “a people dwelling alone”. However, others view this “stain” as a sign of distinction and source of pride. For them, Obama’s distancing is not the end of the world.
The winds of Jew-hatred are again blowing across the world. Those who have roots will be able to withstand them."

SAVANT said...

Israelieedjit - I think this comment is a bit paranoid. Come on, 'most of Europe welcomed the Nazis' ??? Gimme a break!

I agree that Israel is becoming quite unpopular, but much of that stems from its own actions, almost entirely from its settlement programme.

And on this point, I think it a huge mistake to equate everything anti-Israeli with being anti-Jewish. This is a VERY dangerous raod to follow as in effect your tying Jews in the diaspora to what an increasingly religious and messianic Israel is doing.

Recommnedation from a friend: Don't do this.

"Other right-wing rabbis have been quoted in the local media referring to Palestinians as subhuman or as animals, arguing that as non-Jews their lives are of inferior value."

The article doesnt mention NAMES of such rabbis or in which LOCAL MEDIA quotes were taken. A google-search fails to come up with anything.
Personally, I've never heard of a rabbi saying such things.

Some people might think of them as being inferior in the same way that Savant and others here feel towards the blacks, lacking intelligence, lacking any motivation to work, be educated or generally improve themselves. Plus, willingness to become suicide-bombers. They state they glorify death to the same extent that Jews glorify life.
This has nothing to do with Christians, not even Palestinian Christians who are totally different culture-wise than Palestinian Muslems. The former do strive to become educated and successful.

Israelieejit said...

Savant, the article I posted was from a daily newspaper here in Israel. I posted it to demonstrate some threads of thought regarding anti-semitism, jealousy, conspiracies.

Regarding settlement activity, the successful Palestinian Propaganda Machine has made most people believe that every Jewish settlement beyond the Green Line is illegal.
This is in fact wrong.
The Green Line has never been a border and was never meant to become a border. It was a cease-fire line where soldiers happened to be when the truce was declared.
The international representatives who drew up UN SC RES 242 stated that a border was to be NEGOTIATED UPON in the future. It was agreed that a border on the Green Line would be suicidal for Israel. 242 calls for Israel to withdraw from SOME of the territory captured in 1967 but not ALL of the territory. So far Israel has withdrawn from over 90% of the captured territory.
Following the 1967 war, Israel wanted to return the land in return for Arab recognition and peace but the Arab League held a summit in Khartoum and decided: No negotiations, no recognition and no peace with Israel.
During the peace agreement negotiations with Egypt, Israel wanted the Gaza Strip to return to Egypt's control but Sadaat refused. When making peace with Jordan, they also ignored the West Bank population even though Jordan itself was created for the Palestinians.
It takes two to tango Savant. If the Arabs had wanted peace, it could have been achieved years ago.
At the moment, Hamas and Fatah are too busy with their infighting. Looking at the larger picture, the Arab states will never allow the Palestinians to live in peace and prosperity as that would go against their agenda. They prefer keeping them as a pawn and a thorn-in-the-side of the West and Israel. Solving the issue would leave the Arab states with no-one to vent their hate at. Then they would turn on each other.

BTW I disagree with your comment that Israel is becoming increasingly religious and messianic. The percentage of religious population still very small.

Israelieedjit - yes, an earlier poser showed that what you;re saying about the green line is correct. As I admitted in that post, I hadn't actually known this. So much for Jewish control of the media!!

Maybe the religious zealots are still a (mercifully) small percentage, but I'd need some convincing to believe that they're not rapidly increasing in both relative and absolute terms.
