From The SEC To Goldman Sachs In One Easy Step: The Revolving Door Farce Full Frontal

Tyler Durden's picture





 

This particular news from Goldman and the SEC needs absolutely no introduction, explanation, or conclusion. It is, as Homer J. Simpson would say, "a tidy little package."

  • GOLDMAN HIRES EX-SEC INVESTMENT MGMT CHIEF BUDDY DONOHUE: MEMO
  • GOLDMAN NAMES DONOHUE GENERAL COUNSEL OF GSAM INVESTMENT COS

Shocking. Absolutely shocking. Elsewhere, completely unfounded rumors that various DOJ staffers are planning to join assorted Mexican drug cartels shortly.

Q.  "So Mr. Donohue, how are the hens and how many eggs do they lay per day?"

A.  "Fat, and as many as you want."

 

Q. "When does the guard dog sleep?"

A.  "There is no guard dog."

 

Q.  "When does the farmer come out to get the eggs."

A.  "He brings eggs, and leaves the gate to the hen house open."

 

Q.  "What is the farmer's name?"

A.  "Eric Holder; his cousin who gives him free eggs is Ben Bernanke."

 

"Excellent...excellent..."

Pop Quiz:

Which ethnoreligious group, renowned for its ethnocentrism, and constituting 2.5% of the American population, nevertheless can chair all of the following without a single news outlet, commentator, or blog [even ZH] ever daring to address the sheer, breath-taking overwhelmingly disproportionate influence?:

  • The Fed
    • The FOMC
  • FDIC
  • SEC
  • CFTC
  • CBO
  • Council of Economic Advisors
  • National Economic Council
  • Office of Management and Budget

{pretty much all of the major agencies overseeing/regulating banking and finance, that is.}

     Purely a coincidence, I'm sure.  Simply the best qualified people.  'Diversity' is good for local police and fire departments, but not for those steering the ship of government into the nearest iceberg.

How many of that, alleged, 2.5% hold Israeli passports?

I don't buy the 2.5%. I think it is much higher. It's got to be 25% in NY.

I think we need a Constitutional Amendment making dual citizenship a felony in this country. 

Choose: Israel or the United States?

The public deserves to know which country Congress, ultimately, serves.

This Zionist bullshit has to end. Let them go back to Poland from whence they came.

I don't think it is fair for the taxpayers to provide blood and treasure not knowing whose cause is the ultimate beneficiary.

It has become quite obvious the "Stern Gang" has siezed control of the US Gov't.

(original Amendment Article XIII Section 1.) 
Amendment 13. (Colorado Territory printed the last known U. S
Constitution in its Statutes publication showing the 13th Amendment in
1868. Removed 12/6/1865.) 
1) If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive,
or retain, any title of nobility or honor, or shall, without the
consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension,
office or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king,
prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen
of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any
office of trust or profit under them, or either of them. (This
amendment was replaced with the NEW 13
th
Amendment in 1865).

AIPAC not having to register as a foreign agent, especially after the various spying scandals, but simply given its mission (and they're entitled to try to get the US support Israel - the problem is the amount of "capture" by Jews who put Israel First} is prima facie proof that we live under a Zionist Occupation Government,

 

You don't have to 'hate' or even dislike Jews to think that they wield too much power and influence - and that their disproportionate power {more especially the Likudnik Ziocons amongst them, very arguably a minority of Jews} necessarily means a loss of democratic power and influence for the overwhelming majority of the country that aren't Jews.

 

By the way, we're very used to Jews being over-represented in various areas.

 

One place they're significantly under-represented?  The US military.

 

Which puts the mostly Jewish group of neocons advocating for constant ME intervention in a different light, don't it?

Take a look at the 'advisors' around both Romney and Obama and you'll understand, whatever 'discomfiture' you may feel at having the thought, that we do live under a Zionist Occupation Government.  It's a matter of which group of Jews you want - the super far right Likudniks like Adelson and Kristol and Zakheim behind Romney or the slightly less insane Chicago Jewish Mafia behind Obama.

 

Either way - there's a revolving door between entities the Fed bailed out and donors to both candidates.

Check it out.

Wow.

 

What are the odds that Guatemala would have the presidency of the UN Security Council... and that they'd select as their delegate one of about 800 Jews in the whole country?

http://www.guatemalaun.org/

Maybe he's a great dude.  But I suspect he's a 'Israel supporter' - like virtually every executive in hollywood and major newspapers.

 

But we can't talk about the ZOG.  No matter how many AIPAc spies or caught, or how many Jews Clinton appointed for funds, or how Bush appointed a dual citizen son of a Mossad agent the head of a {at the time} new umbrella security organization...  headed up in the senate by another Orthodox Jew Sen. Lieberman... no matter how Obama seems dedicated to appointing Jews as his chiefs of staff or in any position having to do with banking/finance within the executive... despite the disproportionate amount of Jews in the  Federal Reserve System, and at Goldman Sachs.....  

 

the undying refrain is that the ZOG is an "antisemitic canard" - meaning to suggest, of course, that it's neither true nor fair.

 

Cute.
