"[Goldman Sachs] is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentless jamming its blood-funnel into anything that smells like money."

Notice how everything against Goldman Sachs is being dismissed as being "populist". Populism is defined as "The People" Vs. "The Elites".

We have an oligarchy.

And Goldman Sachs is not elitist. They are blood sucking vampires draining Main Street out of their wealth. They are anti-american. They do exactly the opposite of what this country stands for.

And don't forget , Goldman Sachs routinely breaks the law.  There's enough evidence to indict Lewis, Paulson, Blankfein, Summers, Rubin, and the rest of these idiots.   But there will be no indictments -- because the U.S. has become a banana republic, complete with a revolving door of corrupt lobbyists, mega-banks, and weapons contractors.

That's a scary ass piece of propaganda right there. I'd take issue with the idea that it's a "fact" that recessions end.

Nope not a fact....They've ended in terms of a loosely and systemically defined necessity to previous business cycles. But this aint ending. This isn't 2000, and you don't get another chance make a million dollars, fuck elvis, and go on Reality TV.

The recession is over but the Greatest Depression is beginning.

50% Unemployment, civil unrest, food shortages, resource wars all coming sooner then you think. Oh and this means DOW at 500 or less.

mr beck is the 50 million dollar faux news controlled opposition talking head. nothing more, nothing less. when the guns come out, he will hold your coat for you , while you fight and die. if he sees you in the street, he will call the cops on you and say that you are a leftist terrorist, etc. his idea of patriotism is couched in his own viewpoints such as supporting the troops etc even though our troops are doing wrong, and have invaded foreign countries without provacation and are now fighting and killing their indigenous inhabitants for absolutley no reason. oh he will say to anyone that questions these wars that never end, that you are a leftist terrorist and do not love this country. he was invented to fill a niche. like rush limbaugh who by his own admission has his very own private rabbi,(whatever that means), he is paid to fill the airwaves and the talmud vision with nonsense that means nothing.

no, what i am saying is truth is truth, there can be no denying it. what he says is true. but what this is, is like a chess match. remember to win the game, you may lose most of your pieces but when you put the king in check, the game is over. your losses may be high, but nevertheless, you win the game. this is what they do. they relieve the pressure buildup by allowing some truth to come out by these highly paid traitorous talking heads. so they hide truth with truth. i hope this makes sense to you. for so long now, i think like them and it is hard for me to explain sometimes. i know them as they know themselves for i have studied them and know how they think. the people you are up against are very, very clever and will stop at nothing. make no mistake about it. this war we fight now, is a information war for your mind. but when the time is right, this war will become hot, yes hot, here in the land of the fake free and the home of the fake brave. sooner or later, one must stand for what one believes in no matter what. i like so many have for a very long time now, flown below the radar screen, so to speak, but the day is coming when i am going to have to shit or get off of the pot. that day is coming for us all and sooner than we think.

Well certainly all those other "journalists" at networks not deemed faux by frustrated leftists are welcome to get up in front of millions of folks and make the same argument. How about we hold our breaths until they do?

Like it or not FOX is covering this criminality and CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS are not.

Correct. Beck is a media plant. I really like when he claims to be a libertarian. They're trying to make him the face of a movement and his positions are so weak and poorly presented that the MSM can easily crush his arguments. He's a manufactured straw man to distract from the real issues.

I'm so glad he just ripped off Talibbi's RS article. Wait until he makes the connection that GS's employees were the #1 donor group to the oBAMA campaign.

Truly disgusting. What is it going to take for something to be done about these criminals?

It's actually not called an oligarchy, though, it is called fascism.

Yeah,  /agree,  oligarchy and fascism are somewhat interchangable. 


IMO the difference is that fascism has a grassroots component (i.e. youth brigades, government informers, etc).   We are getting there, give it a couple of years.

No he was telling the truth most likely.


What I mean is these figures like Glenn Beck, they mix truth and lies together.  So for example, maybe 80% of what he says has basis in truth, but then they mix in 20% outrageous lies to control the debate and to keep their followers confused and unsure of what actions are in their own best interests.


Examples of things Glenn Beck has said that are lies, for example, would be that Ron Paul supporters are dangerous terrorists, that 9/11 truthers are dangerous terrorists, that a nuke going off in an American city would help 'save the country' etc.  So he'll tell the truth about Goldman, people will think he's on the side of the people against the oligarchy, but then he becomes a turncoat for the enemy when the wind changes direction.

Huh?  What are you talking about?  I said Glenn Beck has lied before, (if you scroll down this page I provided three links to back up my claims).  I am simply suggesting people take what he says with a grain of salt. His past statements indicate he is disingenuous.

beck is a newsfaker who may speak truth
quite often to keep the conservative element
in line with the bush crime syndicate. but
you are so right about him being a tool for the
american wars of aggression.

the bush link to wall street runs through
cargill on to goldman sachs.

and beck's other major role is to discredit 911
truth. the wtc was taken down by us intelligence
on bush sr's orders. the team used
military grade nanothermite
for a controlled demolition of the wtc because
it contained enron evidence linking the bush's
to hussein and osama aka tim osman. besides,
as director of north american mossad operations
rahm "fuck you" emmanuel stated, never waste a
good crisis. hence we got dhs, patriot act, and
a slew of other nazi organizations who are ready
to jump into action this sept/oct when a major
bank holiday goes into effect.

Or maybe Goldman pissed Rupert off. He may not like what he sees. Doing too much damage to his balance sheet. God, I hope everyone isn't pro Goldman. Surely there has to be some infighting at the top.

I think you answered your own question. The point is EVERYONE saw the planes hit, that was the idea.

Do you know how much structural steel is used in a skyscraper? A plane hitting 60(?), wild guess, floors up would not cause the structural levels to collapse on themselves.

OPen your mind to the possibilities before you decide, not the other way around.

The whole M O is it is OK to do evil to a few for the good of many....or themselves.

"... A plane hitting 60(?), wild guess, floors up would not cause the structural levels to collapse on themselves. OPen your mind..."

^^^And you know this, do you?  How?  Did your contacts at the CIA tell you?  LOL!

All conspiracy wingnuts such as yourself don't want to believe the truth, because you can't bring yourselves to admit that this world is full of chaos and that the simplest answer is usually best.  (Look up Occams Razor, it works for this)

In this case the truth you do not wish to face is that a small bunch of fanatic assholes living in caves somewhere could have pulled off something like 9/11.   

Since the truth is too simple & painful for you to accept, you decide to delude yourselves into thinking it just has to be a conspiracy because that somehow makes your world more logical.  You don't want to believe it, so, much like a little child, you refuse to accept it and deny the evidence of your own eyes. 

I would bet that you also don't want to believe that a single loner loser like L.H. Oswald could have had such a profound impact on history in 1963 either, do you? 

Open your own mind.

I used to listen and watch beck before he got on faux news. I seriusly doubt he would ever shill for the dark side, he too concerned bout being a pillar in the community and to make his church look good. Only thing is that now he has to be a dem hater and pro republican that hes on fox.

patriots network my ass. you get on that network and you will be led around by the nose forever trying to make sense of it all and never finding the real reasons why these things are happening. it is like 911 truth. one time i was on a 911 truth blog and i asked the simple question. what is 911 truth? 5 minutes later, i was kicked off and banned. why is that? simple. 911 truth is not about 911 truth. they never will find out who did it but instead spend countless hours arguing over how it was done. same thing with the kennedy assassination. people to this day, argue over how kennedy was shot but will never take a long hard look at who could have done such a thing and why? so if you listen to beck, you will get little crumbs thrown your way. but to truely understand glenn beck, all you really have to do is look at who he works for and who owns fox news. i ask you. in the good cop bad cop tradition, would a brother turn on another brother? think about it and remember the math question....does 2 + 2 = 4?

Take what you can get until someone stops you. Then hire a lawyer. It's been the American Way for so long some people are having a hard time shifting gears while trying to rationalize that they don't really do anything deserving of all of that money.

I'm not a big fan of Beck at all but his facts are indeed bang on with respect to this story. That being said, IMHO nothing is going to be done about Goldman Sachs (and the rest of Wall Street) until there is the political will to do so. And.. there will be NO political will until its made clear to the politicians in the house and congress that their constituents will no longer tolerate this kind of abuse.

It all comes down to the people (who unfortunately are too busy watching American Idol to care about this stuff).
