Jamie Dimon's Memo To JPMorgan Employees: "I Strongly Disagree With President Trump's Reaction "

Tyler Durden's picture

With Trump's key economic advisory forums now disbanded following a mass exodus of corporate CEOs, moments ago JPM CEO Jamie Dimon joined the pile up stating that "the members of the President's Strategic and Policy Forum agreed to disband" and noting that "the group put out its own statement" he wanted "you to understand why I personally supported this decision and how strongly I feel about these issues."

His argument:

...fanning divisiveness is not the answer. Constructive economic and regulatory policies are not enough and will not matter if we do not address the divisions in our country. It is a leader's role, in business or government, to bring people together, not tear them apart.

 

Racism, intolerance and violence are always wrong. The equal treatment of all people is one of our nation's bedrock principles. There is no room for equivocation here: the evil on display by these perpetrators of hate should be condemned and has no place in a country that draws strength from our diversity and humanity.

The full message from Dimon follows:

I strongly disagree with President Trump's reaction to the events that took place in Charlottesville over the past several days. Racism, intolerance and violence are always wrong. The equal treatment of all people is one of our nation's bedrock principles. There is no room for equivocation here: the evil on display by these perpetrators of hate should be condemned and has no place in a country that draws strength from our diversity and humanity.

 

As a company and for all business in general, it is critical that we help develop rational, intelligent policies to help expand opportunities for all of our citizens. I know that times are tough for many. The lack of economic growth and opportunity has led to deep and understandable frustration among so many Americans. But fanning divisiveness is not the answer. Constructive economic and regulatory policies are not enough and will not matter if we do not address the divisions in our country. It is a leader's role, in business or government, to bring people together, not tear them apart.

 

Today, the members of the President's Strategic and Policy Forum agreed to disband. The group put out its own statement. But I also wanted you to understand why I personally supported this decision and how strongly I feel about these issues.

 

I'm very proud of the 250,000 people working here at JPMorgan Chase. I see your values every day - in how you treat your clients, your communities and each other. I am proud to see so many of you leading by example and not losing sight of the core principles which made our country great. I stand with you.

There is no excuse or defense for the white supremacists or racists. But to not see and condemn the same foundational motivations deep in the roots of the black lives matter movement (when they espouse the execution of police, and burn down stores and cars), or postmodernist social justice warriors (who so vehemently and violently protest against any form of speech on campuses that is contrary to their own) is to not understand and see the whole of the issue. It is fine to call a spade a spade. Not calling all spades spades is ignorance, willful blindness, or demonstrates a profound lack of courage.

Stay strong on this Trump. It feels like a fight is coming very soon. Stay strong and millions will fight the swamp, they started it and it's all their fault.

We need to really start hammering home that the SJWs and groups like Antifa are Communists at heart.  From there, pointing out things like the Gulags and Holodomor in the USSR, The Great Leap Forward in China  and the Killing Fields in Cambodia is a must.  I knew a guy who came out of Cambodia to escape the Khmer Rouge, and at 6 fucking years old, he got to watch other kids get blown up in a mine field that he had to go through to get away from that shit.  It is objectively evil, and the MSM refuses to denounce it.  Mark my words, if the left ever truly got power, half of those useful "punch a Nazi" idiots would be lined up and shot, and most of us here on ZH would be on purge lists.  Dimon can get fucked.  The MSM can get fucked.  I have no problem denouncing National Socialism as a collectivist trash ideology.  They should have no problem denouncing Communism as the same, but they do have a problem with it.

If you really think White America looks at the Al-Right with such disgust, then why are the juden shutting down all of Alt-Right websites? Why is free speech dead now?

Fucking juden.

Yes Jamie.  Thank you clarifying that we are all in fact, equal.

But (((some))) are more equal than others... right?

If Dimon was treated equally he would have been in prison for years.

Riddle me this Jamie:

How is Trump's reaction supposedly against the notion of "the equal treatment of people?"

Amazing how they put words in his mouth.

I can't wait until Dimon decides to GO LONG bitcoin & puts a crack team of Elliott wavers to publish price targets on it like Goldman Sachs has already done.

<--- but for now I can't wait to get 'junked' by 'Raffie' & friends because the next babysitting gig doesn't start until Friday and there's nothing else to do in the meantime but play WORLD OF WARCRAFT

 

Even better, I can't wait until 'Max [CRASH JPM] Keiser' has a standing orgasm on this news and the lemmings around here then decide that Dimon is their new Jesus.

Ask him if he is a dual citizen, and when he says yes, ask if you, too, can become an Israeli National like him.  Guess what - you can't.  You are the wrong" race", or is it "heritage", or is it "religion"?  I'm confused, but I am not an anti-Semite.  I have several Lebanese friends, for instance.  No use for Zionists, though.

Call these sanctimonious hypocrites out for what they are.

Have a look at your 92.5% Caucasian board of directors Jamie Dimon, you racist xenophobic bastard. You should be FIRED IMMEDIATELY for your racist policies that created this unacceptable situation for a company that has had to be bailed out by impoverished American citizens.

knightowl77's picture

he should be fired for many many reasons...prob should be hanging from a lamp post next to Obama & Clinton, and many others but not for having a "92.5% Caucasian board of directors"....that doesn't make a racist...

The republic has ceased to exist.....and in its place a putrid rotting corpse run by the insane, for the criminal class.

People fear most what they are trying to repress in their own minds. People are siding against so-called white supremacism because they feel society and they themselves are being drawn into a reaction against all this equalist indignation nonsense. They are afraid all the equalists' propaganda and bullying is about to be spooled away by the rip tide.

They are trying and failing, the websites are back up again. The more you tell people not to do something, the more they rebel.

How's the saying go:  Never interrupt your enemy while they are making a mistake.

They are prodding a sleeping bear.  The difference between America today and Bolshevik Russia is.... The peasants in America today are armed!

Later, in Soviet Russia, the saying was "The Party pretends to pay us, and we pretend to work." 

And the classic, "Yes, the government lied to us, but we knew they were lying."  America is getting there...  Look at what sites are uncensored in the comments section.  Look at what sites are highly censored.  All the liberal sites will be highly censored, and conservative sites will be uncensored.  That tells ME that in the battleground of ideas, the leftists/godless Commies don't stand a chance, so they have to censor all dissenters.

Not only are Amricans armed to the teeth, we have a heritage of independence, not servitude to "royalty".  Americans in general do not like to be told what to do, and like cats, don't herd well.

disgusting to see people write the politically correct garbage they do at work about this stuff....its like do anyone of them get information from anywhere but cnn?  its unreal.

Why else would Pence come back sooner than planned?

And the nation is so brainwashed they could use Trump's reply as the reason.

chunga's picture

Pence is about as swampy as they get as far as I'm concerned.

ronthefisherman's picture

Would it be stating the obvious, to say - "It's not going to end well for the Trump presidency"...?

With Daddy Bush and Dubbya - as well as lots of foreign leaders tipping a bucket on Trump - all you can ask is....

 

How will this end?

Also took the wind out of the fact North Korea folded and Trump won, that's what the whole MSM objective is.

Insufficient.  They need a truly massive false flag, and/or race war pantomimes in at least a dozen more cities.

JAMIE DIMON ... YOU SIR ARE SO VERY, VERY WRONG!!! The POTUS was correct in stating what he said the way he said it.

JAMIE DIMON ... I really hope you reading this note. YOU ARE THE BIGOTED RACIST in this discussion. Get behind the POTUS and just STAND DOWN from you IVORY TOWER!!!! 

I swear all of these CEOs have a HEARING PROBLEM!!!!

doctor10's picture

they themselves are all racists at heart. They just can't stand whites.

As with almost EVERY single liberal issue, when you start getting too close to the truth of the matter for their comfort, they immediately start to accuse you of that which they are themselves doing and practicing. They just can't help themselves.

Since trying to make Trump look like a commie in collusion with Russia hasn't worked, the next act on the playbill is to
paint him a racist

That is absolutely ALL that is going on here.

They don't like blacks either.  They just use them as a tool.  Seven or eight thousand blacks murdered in black ghettos because of black gang warfare?  A shitload of blacks in Baltimore overdose on opiates?  Pffft.  A black thug shot by a cop?  OH MY GOD! 

 

They can use the optics of that for political purposes.  They really don't give a fuck about their "allies."  This is about power, and race is the cudgel being used to obtain it. 

Andre's picture

Actually, you could argue that Antifa is a terrorist organization. As such, they fall under the Patriot Act. As such, why are not at lest the leaders being arrested? Frankly, you could get Soros on the same flag as financier/board member.

Hell, we don't even know if they really WERE Klan. And holding a Confederate battle flag does not make you a racist,

This whole thing just strikes me as more Culture War, the same as it's been for hundreds of years. Doesn't matter if it's Indians (Native Americans), Indians (Asian), Cambodia (Day Zero under Pol Pot), the Bolsheviks, Israel on Palestine, or whoever. It's all BS.

Trump is setting them all up to show their true colors now.  He is done with the globalist disruptions, especially the MSM.

Now things get interesting. Restore Glass-Steagall, break up the big 4. End the FED. Begin the push toward FREEDOM AGAIN!!

What happened to Dimons' throat cancer?  Why is he talking when nobody is listening?

These libtards are all just trying to frame Trump and lay false accusations when Trump ALREADY condemned the acts.

That would make Dimon an uninformed IDIOT, which I always knew he was.

 

El Vaquero's picture

He sucked on another kind of cancer, and that killed his throat cancer:  Globalist cock. 

Truth_Hoits's picture

"That would make Dimon an uninformed IDIOT."

 

 On the contrary...Dimon is a very well informed idiot.

He just doesn't want to be the last one to jump ship.

He knows exactly what he's doing, that's virtue signaling so that his team snowflakes don't condemn him for not speaking out against Trump.

 

Like Trump would say: Good riddance, Dimon.

And then when JPM needs something, Trump will say something like, "You did a bad bad thing when you did what you did to me."

Slow and steady wins the race.(no pun intended)

 

I mean, what was this stupid council and who the F cares.

trump was extending them the opportunity to be part of the future.

Instead, they will rot and go by the wayside.

Just like the Zuck will...just like Yahoo is...just like AOL did...just like lehman did.

I can hear the snowflakes now..."But facebook will be around forever!"

On a long enough timeline...the survival rate for EVERYTHING drops to....

Jamie Dimon is a globalist crybaby who should be FIRED IMMEDIATELY for playing politics when JPM got a huge taxpayer bailout a few years ago.
