Goldman Sachs taking heavy media fire

Indictments forthcoming for high crimes and treason?

“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. In fact, the history of the recent financial crisis, which doubles as a history of the rapid decline and fall of the suddenly swindled dry American empire, reads like a Who's Who of Goldman Sachs graduates.”
This is the opening to “The Great American Bubble Machine,” Matt Taibbi’s brilliant exposé in the July issue of Rolling Stone. Taibbi swiftly explains how Goldman Sachs has engineered every major market manipulation since the Great Depression, from stocks to the housing bubble to high gas prices. Thanks to the wonders of technology, you can also watch Taibbi explain how Goldman Sachs has been manipulating the world.
Almost simultaneously, analyst Max Keiser went off about the “financial terrorism” of Goldman Sachs on the BBC. In explaining how Goldman Sachs is stealing from every single person in America by manipulating the market, Keiser asks, “How is this any different from Osama Bin Laden?”
The answer to that question is none. For decades, the people running the worlds financial institutions, including Goldman Sachs, have started all the Wars on Earth, be they in Iraq or Vietnam or Europe. The people running the world’s financial institutions finance the political candidates, both Republican and Democrat, and the networks they campaign on, and then profit from the wars they engineer. The people running the world’s financial institutions, including Goldman Sachs, could have chosen to feed and clothe every single person in the world. By now, we could be enjoying world peace. To date, the bankers have instead decided to enjoy gaudy mansions and lifestyles, living off the hard work of sweatshop workers in the countries they have bankrupted. Be forewarned, the robber barons may let the dollar collapse, they have inflated it away, and you may want to invest in precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum, or a gold ETF.
You can keep drinking the Kool-Aid if you wish, but there will be consequences for America’s reckless spending of trillions created out of thin air. Start growing vegetables, forward this newsletter, and take to the streets with your Rand Paul clipboards, because real change – revolutionary change – is on the way. Just remember – violence begets violence. In the words of John Lennon – “All you need is love.”
