"[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.

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.

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.

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.

beck is a newsfaker who may speak truth
quite often to keep the conservative element

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

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'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).

Look at the top 5 derivative banks, they are clearly part of the cartel and their WMD derivatives are used to manipulate markets (including naked phantom selling, interest rate control, and precious metals).

I would agree that we should include all 5 in the investigations and not just Goldman.

As a Ron Paul supporter, I was really curious about your points. I watched the first and third videos and think you're off your rocker. Nowhere in the first video does he say Ron Paul supporters are terrorists, and nowhere in the 3rd video does he say that about saving America. I didn't bother watching the 2nd video since the other two clearly aren't what you've represented them to be.

 My sound doesn't work on this computer so I couldn't verify if these are the right videos.  Hang on I will check and get back to you.

 

*edit:

 

Actually, I think these videos speak for themselves.  In the first video, Beck is implying 'fringe' elements who raised the $6 million for Ron Paul will become violent, and is associating Ron Paul supporters with the actions Guy Fawkes and Timothy McVeigh.  In the second link, we see a 9/11 truth activist is persuing a lawsuit against Beck for defamation for characterizing 9/11 truthers as 'anarchists' and 'terrorists'.  In the third video, we see Glenn Beck *nods in agreement* with a spook that comes on his program and suggests the only thing that will save America is a nuke attack.

 

So yes, I'll stand by my original claims.  And next time, please keep your ad hominem attacks out of this.  As you may be aware, this is a well-known logical fallacy.

there is one more thing that we must think about. it is quite possible that ron paul is not the man we think he is too. if one looks at the last presidential election, very soon , after a huge successful ron paul money bomb on the internet was concluded, suddenly ron paul quits without much explanation. why is that? could he be, just controlled opposition? one thing is for sure. you can most definitely find many images of him, (on the internet), performing the masonic handshake with people and making the sign of the "hook em horns" sign with his hand. Why would he be doing this? I think he tells those who are watching him, that everything is alright and don't worry about it. As I have done in the past, I will continue to do now, merely act as though i want liberty but in reality just play the game as you, my owners and puppetmasters want me to for the good of the cause, as I have done my whole life. Is this far fetched? under the circumstances i say no, it is not. I will just go ahead and say, that imho, ron paul , is and/or was compromised from the start, he was thrown in there as a necessary relief valve for the angry voters and in the end he betrayed them, on cue and they were left scratching their balls and wondering what just happened. on the situation with the audit the FED false hope scenerio, ron paul of course, started this. but as is often the case, games are played. even though he may have started it, it really means nothing because our congress is controlled by the people who own the FED and he knows this. it is just postering for the camera and the dreamers out here in flyover country. now all of this, cannot be truthfully and completely stated. to be factual, but i merely throw it out for discussion. what say you fine folks of zero hedge. is it possible?

Well that's something I wonder about myself.  Paul's daughters are also involved with Rainbow Girls (youth freemasonry)  , his wife is member of Order of the Eastern Star (female masonry), etc.  

 

But then again I always say judge someone by their fruits, and Ron Paul has sponsored the audit the Fed bill, so let's hope that passes to shed some light on the criminal activities of the Federal Reserve.  If we can't stop this train we are in for some serious problems, as the situation in the United States at the moment is very similar to Italy in the early 1930s.

also if you remember , paul would never come clean about this 911 thing. he kept talking about this silly stupid blow back book and skirting the issue. everybody with half a brain knows that some tall skinny saudi guy with bad kidneys living in a cave somewhere in afghanistan could not possibly pull off the greatest terror event in the history of the world, allegedly using hijacked planes that flew around without challenge for over a hour in the most heavily defended airspace in the world. people kept hoping against hope that paul would come out about this but he didn't and he won't. so i suspect him now. and since he was a john bircher and still is, to the best of my knowledge, then knowing what i know about the john birch society about how it was nothing more than controlled opposition in and of itself, since its inception, then one would have to extrapolate to the present day, this knowledge and the only conclusion one can come up with , is yes he is one of them, i am sorry to say. of course this sort of discussion causes the lava to flow and to spew from the dyed hard true believer volcanoes, who cannot bring themselves to believe such a thing. but in the search for truth, one must go where truth leads, no matter how we dread it or hate it, we must continue on digging and studying and learning and understanding. when you take the red pill, nothing is the same anymore, nothing is as it appears anymore, nothing is the way it used to be. nothing can be left to chance. it all must be tried in the balances. in my opinion, ron paul is weighed in the balances and found to be wanting.

If he is controlled opposition, hes pretty bad at it, because he really stirred up a ton of angry bees that take what he says seriously. Ron Paul supporters are beginning to realize that Ron Paul is not the future of the "liberty movement",  its those who he has inspired to take a critical look at the world, introducing them not only to individual liberty in a social sense, but in an economic sense. Although it does bother me that there is a fair amount of Ron Paul worship, as he is only one man.

You dont have to agree with him about everything, just listen to what the man says and decide for yourself. Years into the future, who knows who will step up to the plate, and perhaps it will be someone who was inspired by his beliefs.

Ah yes, you're right. 

 

My position is quite similar to yours.  I definitely support the Audit the Fed bill, and I signed the petition and called and faxed Congress.  I doubt the Federal Reserve would be hiring a PR firm if they were not threatened by the popular backlash.

As much as i like Ron Paul, and would have loved for him and his ideas to have been elected President, i have always wondered exactly what you are saying--if he is so honestly against the fact that the fed can charge interest on currency that is circulated that is not backed by gold or silver, why doesn't he just say it instead of the long drawn out dissertation of why we need the gold standard?  You know he knows about the federal reserve act and this specification, and if he was at all serious, he would have already brought this important fact to the mass audience he has, and made a record of it in his book.  So, in a way, he does look like controlled opposition.  Additionally, if he was a serious threat to the powers that be, think about it, you have to wonder why he hasn't ended up like martin armstrong, or just mysteriously disappeared?  This way, the powers that be know who his biggest supporters are, and they can keep track of their opponents.

By the way, did anyone else notice how Rep. Daryl Issa suddenly started kissing the _____ of Bernake and Paulson? I wonder who got to him?

Wow. Conspiracy-heads are really out on the town tonight to suggest that Ron Paul is some kind of controlled opposition. The guy has been complaining for years with no one taking him seriously at all, and now that people are finally listening, all of a sudden he is a puppet of the dark side? Gimme a break. At a minimum, look at his record of writings, which have been consistent (and completely ignored) for years.

On that note, his next book, titled "End the Fed" will be released in September. The title suggests there is not much ambiguity to his position.

As for Glenn Beck, why all the cheap attacks on him? So he has said some stupid things in the past. Fine. But has anyone else with any kind of following anywhere in the MSM called out Goldman like this? I've never watched much of him, but for today at least, he qualifies as a hero.

I agree with you about Glenn Beck, but i think you are making a mistake to chalk up my comment and maybe others to "conspiracy heads".  Maybe Mr. Paul's new book will detail the things people don't know about the fed, but, even with that, it took him a very long time to do so, and he must have know the details a long time ago since he endorsed the book The Creature from Jekyl Island.

No I agree, as stated above, Ron Paul being controlled opposition is silly.

My issue is that Ron Paul supporters in some cases seem to idolize him in a way that I think will get them nowhere. He is much better as a conduit for the ideas he puts forth, for others to "follow in his footsteps" or at least take the ideas that he brought to the table and establish their own point of view.

One thing I want people to consider:Think about the type of person that becomes a serious politician, do you think that it appeals to people who have respect for individual liberty whatsoever? Or does it attract those who have an urge to control others, crave the power to grant political favors and further their own status in society at the expense of others? In my mind that would explain a lot about our political establishment, namely the lack of politicians that have any respect for the individual in society.

The freemason thing does bother me, not sure if he is a high level member as in 30+ where they know the real deal. But he has been consistent for 20 years in his voting record, John McCain said he was the most ethical person in washington (before running against him), his portfolio which was released when he ran showed all gold & silver stocks and was small chump change compared to all the other sell outs(consistent with his sound money doctrine), and he single handedly championed this audit the fed bill. Why would they put him up to that, unless they are all in on trying to collapse the dollar & the US to bring in a one world gov (possible, but just conjecture). Also, remember how he was lampooned in the debates and then cut off despite having the best arguments (Carl Cameron was owned). In his office, he has a sign that says don't steal, the government hates competition (he gets it). Also, have you seen him grill Bernanke on Youtube? Classic!

that's just crazy talk. Ron Paul is a libertarian, but he is just not very good at getting his message across. He has a very strong message, but terrible delivery.

Ever see him ask questions on a panel? He uses his five minutes to ramble on and on and makes maybe one good point every four tries.

His heart is in the right place, but he has a hard time delivering.

If you could marry his knowledge with WallStreetPro's delivery, then you would have something!

You guys are really off your rocker.. Ron Paul KNEW that his attempt to gain the presidency would NOT work and decided to continue to run a minimal campaign with the grassroots doing much of the work to educate the public. He then used the millions he had left over to start the Campaign for Liberty. This group in its short life has over 160,000? members and coordinators in every state and many counties. You can thank this group in their fist major initiative for getting more than 270 cosponsors for HR1207.
His decision to halt his campaign and do this has been far more effective as if he were to have blown all his campaign cash on what he knew would have been a failed presidential run.

Hahah no, I'm fine --  but have yet to see my expected implosion of the COMEX (unfortunately).  They've managed to keep this casino going far longer than I ever thought possible, mainly because the COMEX is accepting ETF shares of GLD and SLV as "good delivery" rather than physical metal, as recently disclosed by Zero Hedge in articles written by GATA and Adrian Douglas.  As for Mish,  I still read his blog regularly but the commenters on his blog generally struck me as a bit naive.  But now I found Zero Hedge so I tend to read him, Denninger, and sometimes Elite Trader.

 

Interestingly enough, I came across this on whatreallyhappened.com a couple of days ago...  Turns out the SLV ETF (administerd by JP Morgan) and London-based ETF Securities have overlapping serial numbers on a significant number of 1000 ounce bars.  Oops.

 

Check out page 1698-1722 of the SLV silver bars list. They have got some silver bars from China. The brand is Great Wall. The supposedly unique serial numbers are from No. 1001 - No. 1460. With many duplications.

The ETFS's silver bars list also contains silver bars of the same Great Wall brand. The serial numbers are also the sameNo. 1001 - No. 1360.

Go ahead and believe that. Go right ahead.

 

As to Beck, I remember him when he got started at WFLA.  He doesn't do his "Corky" material anymore or call immigrants running 7-11s in different cities asking questions like "What 11 letter word do most Harvard graduates pronounce "Incorrectly"?" but that's the problem.  You seem to think that Truth is Class Functional and since Beck is a member of an inauthentic class, he is easily dismissed.

 

But, no, his assertions cannot be so easily denied.  Have YOU read what Paulson and the other Oligarchs said when the Crash that THEY caused began? No, I didn't think so. You were probably discussing Maureen Dowd's latest Hate Commentary.  With approval

The sad truth us that Glenn Beck is correct in this case. As a capaign volunteer for then-Senator, now-President Obama, I believe we must hold the Obama administration accountable for continuing the Bush administration's policy of shoveling taxpayer money into the accounts of extremely rich bankers.

The Obama administration are lamenting the suffering of middle class and poor Americans, all the while giving more money paid by middle-class and poor Americans to extremely rich bankers.

I recommnd to everyone Matt Taibbi's excellent article in the new Rolling Stone magazine.

Why are Goldman Sachs friends and former staff at the highest positions of the Obama administraiton? Why is Mr. Geithner, who failed to oversee Goldman Sachs as chief of the New York Fed, now Treasury Secretary? Why is Mr. Summers the top financial adviser?

Why are Obama supporters putting up with this?

I personally have spent some time on the subject, and, quite honestly, I give it a 10% chance of having been an inside job. I don't know anyone who thinks I'm insane (though moron -- guilty, as charged).

One of my favorite economists at GMU has done analysis on the question of why rational people disagree. Rational people, with the same facts and evidence, should never disagree. When they do, it's because one of them is being irrational or in the act of sending a social signal about something else. It's a powerful concept, and it's taught me to think in probabilities about many things other than trading. Traders naturally think in probabilities, but even the most rational trader forgets that almost everything else in life is just as uncertain as the markets.

Stuart, in my opinion, if we have any hope in maintaining (or reviving) the integrity of our republic, we have got to accept the fact that our country's president is where the buck stops, and if Obama is now accomplice to the whole financial-government duopoly (thank you Shaza) then he is responsible and guilty for any harm produced from his acceptance of the paulson/bernake plan among other things. Giving Obama a free pass by making him a victim is a real problem.

My hope is that a group of our country's finest young adults with the most extreme scruples (the younger the better ) will get together, and run out of office every corrupt senator and representative we have in Washington(most will have to be run out of office)--and that they will campaign as a group across the whole nation--on the platform that they won't be bought, and that they want limited terms and that this will bring the change that everyone wanted when they voted for Obama.  Imagine if Matt Taibbi decided to dedicate the next few years to one term as an elected official, and he could get together enough people from each state to replace all the corrupt, to bring to Washington, truth, honesty and real regard for the people of this country.  And the next part of my hope for this country is that the next president, will be a leader to this group, representing the ultimate in not being owned by any group, and that we can have this new group, take us back to our roots and forward to the future that we all want for our country.

And, with a group like this, dissent would be highly prized and deals wouldn't be struck in secret.

I think if I was in Hank Paulson's position, I would look to other Goldman alum for advice as well. Where else would he look? Washington? Elsewhere on Wall St where banks are going under right and left? It seems like everyone who doesn't suck works for Goldman Sachs.

For all the ranting and name-calling, none of you have any real evidence of wrongdoing by Goldman Sachs.

Period.

9/11 Believers are the tin-foil hat fools. Any simple look at the official story shows it's full of massive holes. Where is the 9/11 Believer who can offer a credible explanation for the collapse of WTC Building #7?

Who is sooo stupid that they believe Larry Silverstein?

Who is the 9/11 Official Believer that can explain the huge surge in UAL puts on September 7? Bloomberg doesn't have an explanation. "Over three days before terrorists flattened the World Trade Center and damaged the Pentagon, there was more than 25 times the previous daily average trading in a Morgan Stanley "put" option that makes money when shares fall below $45. Trading in similar AMR and UAL put options, which make money when their stocks fall below $30 apiece, surged to as much as 285 times the average trading up to that time." SEC asks Goldman, Lehman for data, Bloomberg News, 9/20/01

If you are a 9/11 Official Story Believer, you are either a fool, an overly emotional person that can't face facts or someone in-bed with the fascist oligarchy for one reason or another, ie. $$$'s

Maybe, but if you constantly blend your conspiracies together, ranting about 9/11 on a Goldman Sachs website, for example, while also casually calling people 'fascists' and 'oligarchs', you sound like an idiot, and the whole world will dismiss you as one.

#9458 Weak weak response. ... With the requisite ad hominem attack. You need to get a new playbook 'cause the old one stopped working, making you, you know ... sound like an idiot, and the whole world will dismiss you as one.

This business of mocking a broadcaster as a shill is foolish. None of you would do better, since your first hint of needing or wanting some real revolution would be your last day broadcasting.

Buildings as short as 3 levels...parking decks for example...have been documented to pancake with a lot less force initiating the collapse than a 150 KT aircraft flying in. Moreover, the collapse of one floor onto the second is a small event (in those cases). When floor 88 collapsed onto floor 86, it carried all the floors above. No building could have stood that; the force of 22 floors falling 1 floor is simply not sustainable.

There is one point threaded throughout the comments however that is important to keep in mind. All the broadcast/cable talkers are pressure-relief valves that the government will permit to operate so long as that seems to be their major function. Whatever the value you ascribe to elected officials, the target for your strong letters is them, not Limbaugh, Beck, etc., etc, and not each other. They are not impervious to repeated written argument, as much as their staffs would like you to believe otherwise.

So appologist #9982, keep it simple. What happened to WTC Building #7? No plane hit Bldg. #7. Check out Barry Jennings, NYC housing official who was in BLDG #7.

Check out "Lucky" Larry Silverstein who made about $5Billion in 4 months when he took over the lease of the WTC a constant money loser and bought insuraunce to pay off in the event of a "terrorist attack". What was in the lease he negotiated with Mr. Lewis Eisenberg, Chairman of the Port Authority for New York. Mr. Eisenberg was a general partner and co-head of the equity division of Goldman Sachs.

Watch #7 come down at the speed of gravity and still say you believe the official explanation. Impossible, ... unless you have an agenda besides truth.

Mark Leibovitt at VRTrader.com's been discussing this for months. He takes it a step further in describing their ability to control certain investment markets. Don't kid yourself, "Government Sachs" is in control.
