Clinton and Goldman Sachs — Why Such Duplicity?

By 5 Comments 1,062 views

We are witnessing the disintegration of globalist plans for supranational authority over us from some unknown distant locale. In Europe, with spasms of stupidity, they attempted to instil fear in the hearts of Brits to no avail.  Donald Trump’s support has come in large part to his pushback on globalism and its principles of trade liberalization.  Globalists, however, are not done fighting.  Having taken firm control over America’s economy, they are determined to take absolute control of the Nation’s political and administrative systems.

Goldman Sachs, the firm sitting comfortably atop the banking ladder along with JPMorgan, B. of A., Wells Fargo and Citigroup, has done a sophisticated job of controlling the current White House, having first been Obama’s second largest political contributor. Goldman’s self-interest shepherded the ‘bank-bailout’ bilking of American taxpayers.  Political resistance to globalization is increasing, worrying the senior bankers, so who do they see as malleable, and manageable, for the coming critical four years?

Millions have flowed into the Clinton pockets and sphere of influence from Goldman Sachs and its senior managers.   With Hillary Clinton, the bankers didn’t just pay for “meetings”, they paid for her influence and paid for her vote.  For example, getting paid by UBS, for helping settle an IRS vs. UBS (a major Swiss global financial services company) lawsuit while Secretary of State, is hardly honourable.  Banker influence of the Clintons is old. Remember Bill Clinton’s Secretary of The Treasury, Rubin, who structured the deregulation of financial derivatives, including those infamous Collateralized Debt Obligations (CDOs), that exploded in the mid 2000s? Rubin came from Goldman Sachs. Through him, they leveraged power that made them tens of billions of dollars.  Who suffered?  Who didn’t go to jail when the artificial bubble blew?

The bankers, their cohorts and their political class puppets tell us lies to keep us confused and afraid.  They make convoluted claims such as announcements on the Nation’s GDP —  GDP rates are today nothing but political constructs used by our self-flattering leaders to curry popularity and mislead. Regardless how much they deny it, our cost of living has steadily increased, our incomes have slid, our taxes have increased, and our jobs have evaporated.

Clinton’s platitudinous flight into surreality, which has only been equaled by her persistent misconduct, gets a self-indulgent shoulder shrug from the Presidential candidate and her fawning media throng. The bankers are grateful.

The profligate abuse of taxpayers’ future incomes with so-called helicopter-quantitative-easing is a disastrous force undermining America.  In Clinton, Goldman Sachs and the senior bankers have purchased fuel for their ‘helicopter’ which has for 8 years brought them hegemony over the unfathomably indebted 99% of the population. They have purchased and paid forward for support of the disintegration of international borders.

They are also doubling down on their investment in Clinton by ordering their millionaire senior managers and partners to NOT provide Trump with any financial support. Their pretext of potential conflict because Pence is the governor of Indiana with some influence over state pensions — is ABSURD. They are desperate to have a venal politician like Clinton in charge. Hillary and Bill have always been ready, willing, and able to oblige.

The bankers are determined to maintain controls on enslavement of the population.  They spent decades meticulously constructing a system that they now effectively manipulate to their self-interest.  They are not about to give up.  They assume, sometimes correctly, that they can override wisdom, or insight, by instilling FEAR in the voting masses. Fear of everything including fear of Trump.

Bankers and the elitists don’t much care what sophistry is used to agitate the masses into succumbing to their dominance. They assume that Fear will enable them to further invade whatever liberties we still hold onto. Submissive, indentured populations make for happy bankers. Pumping out baseless, or inane claims such as telling the Joint Chiefs of Staff that global warming (now climate change), is the greatest threat to the United States, is justified since their “end” justifies their “means”.  A lying, bought President, or lying, bought candidate, are powerful tools in achieving their “end”.

Two thirds of Americans feel the Nation is heading in the wrong direction, although they seem to not place much responsibility for their souring plight, as half think that Obama is doing an OK job. Smiling and repeating lies works, . . . and works amazingly well for the manipulators.

Is it so hard to grasp that centrally controlled, artificial stimulus rooted in DEBT, creates only temporary impressions of ‘wellbeing’?  Is it a too-wide intellectual leap to understand that a crony capitalist economy exploits the 99% to the benefit of the parasitic few?  How is the reality of underemployment in every neighbourhood in the Nation not an evident truth?

A continuation of the past 7 years which doubled the debt accumulated in the previous 233 years will permanently cement the Nation’s state of deterioration and fasten 99% and its descendants to indefinite servitude.

A constituent of the vast baby boomer generation with a career which has been fortunate to know the ponderous corporate worlds, as well as the intimately pressurized, and invigorating entrepreneurial domains of high tech and venture capital, I have harvested my share of mistakes meandering through corridors of enterprise from Silicon Valley, to London and endless, colourful, sometimes praetorian points in between. The voyage has provided an abundance of fodder for a pen yielding to an inquisitive keyboard, a foraging mind, and a passionate spirit. Whether political or business or social or economic or personal, is it not all political? It is a privilege to write, and an even greater privilege to be read by anyone, and sometimes with the wind at my back the writing may occasionally be legible. I do not write to invite scorn, nor to invite respect, but if I get really lucky the writing can stimulate thinking. I also write for the very selfish purpose of animating my own processes, and engaging the best of what life offers. Above all, whether biting fire or swatting shadows, I am grateful to be gifted the freedom to write and publish whatever flows down to the keyboard. To all those who enabled this freedom, and to all those standing guard to preserve it, I am indebted.

    FTA:

    There is a huge divide in this country.
    The US Chamber of Commerce does NOT stand for ANY of the same things as your Main Street Chamber of Commerce.
    The Union leaders do not stand for the same thing as their membership, rank and file, either.
    In CA, where Union dues given to political candidates MUST reflect the will of the members who paid their dues, the SEIU is in the Top Ten of donors to the Republicans and to Trump!!!
    I visit my bank often.
    While bankers at the top might all be in the tank for Hillary, the bankers, the managers, the tax preparers, the tellers are mostly for Trump!
    So, when I see how the Elites, of any part of the USA, are all in for globalism and Hillary I think of the vote.
    The Elites are less than 3% of the vote.
    All the money in the world can’t change that.
    Underneath them are working Americans (and even non-working Americans) who are NOT globalists, nor for Hillary.
    And those people vote, too.
    In vast numbers this time, if the primaries are any indication.

    NannyG, good point. I try to make it a point in articles and discussion to differentiate between Wall Street, Senior Bankers, and all of the thousands of smaller banks across the country. They live in different worlds. Your small to medium local banker doesn’t take a billion dollar Christmas bonus.

    The guys who control the game, control The Fed and the cash spigots with which they feed themselves. The loose cash does NOT make it to MAIN STREET, and hasn’t in 8 years of QE.

    As I’ve written previously, that is part of the problem. None of the QE has helped middle America. Indentured it, yes, but helped it, not one bit. America doesn’t invest in small businesses anymore. Unless you’re ‘connected’ and have an venture firm ready to flip your useless Facebook app into the public market, you’re out of luck.

    The age of the entrepreneur is passed. Fraudulent Crony capitalism has sucked up the oxygen, . . . and the cash.

    Key to the banker’s game is control of all CENTRAL BANKS.

    Thanks, Skook. Your entrepreneurial energy is exactly what the Nation needs in abundance, yet it is what these hate-filled statists stifle.

    The absurd QE policy of The Fed is creating concentrations of expanded power through mergers and acquisitions. They become the only ones which can manage under the regulation burden this mindless Administration has rushed to impose.

    . . . . And the seals clap for their next handout.
