Completing The Circle: Meet The US Ambassador To Germany

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Everyone knows that Italy's unelected PM, Mario Monti, is a former Goldman Sachs International 'advisor.' As such, it is only natural that being part of the banking cartel he would do everything in his power to promote an inflationary agenda, one that seeks ECB bond monetization intervention, (another central bank headed by a former Goldmanite of course, who just happens to be Germany's most hated man), perpetuates the status quo, and one that naturally contravenes everything that German citizens have been pushing for in their desire to avoid the risk of another hyperinflationary episode. Especially if, as is well-known, resolving Europe's problems, however briefly, facilitates an Obama re-election campaign because as conventional wisdom is also catching on, should Europe implode before November, Obama's reelection chances plunge accordingly. And yet, even as Goldman's tentacles had spread all over Europe (as seen here), conventional wisdom was that Goldman's influence in Germany was relatively muted.

Wrong.

Meet US Ambassador To Germany Phillip Murphy, who successfully resolves the two key issues noted above courtesy of his professional experience as both a Senior Director at Goldman...  as well as National Finance Chair of the DNC.

Philip D. Murphy was confirmed by the U.S. Senate as U.S. Ambassador to the Federal Republic of Germany on August 7, 2009.  He presented his credentials in Berlin to German President Horst Koehler on September 3, 2009.

 

Born in 1957, Ambassador Murphy is a native of the Boston, Massachusetts area.  He graduated from Harvard University in 1979 with an A.B. in Economics and received an M.B.A. in 1983 from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.  He and his wife, Tammy, have four children, Josh, Emma, Charlie and Sam.

 

For over six decades, Germany has been one of the United States’ closest allies and, as such,  Ambassador Murphy is honored and humbled by the position he occupies.  During the Cold War, the German-American relationship was defined by a divided Berlin, Germany and Europe.  Today, the U.S. works side-by-side with Germany across the range of its global interests.

 

Engaging Germany’s youth, none of whom were born during the Cold War, is a major focus of Ambassador Murphy’s, whether through town hall meetings, exchange programs or his regular communication through a variety of social media.  He often says, “the legacy of our time together in Germany will be measured by how well we ‘set the table’ for tomorrow, by how deeply today’s youth understand the ongoing relevance of the transatlantic bridge.  They are tomorrow’s leaders and our investment in their future is our highest priority.”

 

Ambassador Murphy spent 23 years at Goldman Sachs and held a variety of senior positions, including in Frankfurt, New York and Hong Kong, before becoming a Senior Director of the firm in 2003, a position he held until his retirement in 2006.  After leaving Goldman Sachs, he served from 2006-2009 as the National Finance Chair of the Democratic National Committee.

 

Over the years, Ambassador Murphy has devoted substantial time to civic, community and philanthropic affairs.  He has focused his efforts on areas including civil rights, education, progressive and pragmatic public policy, urban development and a variety of issues related to his adopted home state of New Jersey.

We hope that completes any missing elements to the puzzle.

It will be truly delightful if instead of targeting the citizens of peripheral Europe who are no more at fault for any of the current socio-economic collapse than they are, Germans were to instead focus all their attention, anger and hatred on the one entity at the bottom of it all. You know who.

Why the surprise?

The more big banks control, the more they...well....control....

What's interesting is that there is no public outrage...yet...

They are too distracted looking at mindless shit on their various screens...

Nope. Not gonna happen. Like trained & neutered dogs, like the citizens of Greece who just kill themselves, the idea of taking out a responsible party, like a politician or banker, never occurs to them. Is it their ignorance or their conditioning?

Goldman isn't Jewish Controlled, it's Luciferian Illuminati controlled, big difference.  This guy is just another tenticle of the ruling elite families.  Although the Illuminati is run just like organized crime.

Still nobody seems to care that an Oligarchy runs things, the entertainment/SNAP matrix has them pacified.  There are maybe thousands that are aware of this that aren't part of it.  It's not enough.

What will wake people up? Will they ever wake up? Will it be too late when they finally if ever wake up and are heading to their doom?

Maybe the good guys will get a break someday.

Yep ... 6 junks, so far, for the truth!

It's amazing how resistant people are to changing their belief system, even when confronted with facts.

Meanwhile, the Vatican is laughing all the way to the bank! ... and to regaining centralized control over Europe, in league with the ruling class ... again!  LOL.

What will wake people up? Hunger and lack of entertainment.

Will they ever wake up? Nopes, maybe for a while to take a leak and then go back to sleep.

Will it be too late when they finally if ever wake up and are heading to their doom? Its late already. Check the Security services and apparatus all around.

It will be much easier for some of us to group up and carve our share out of this system, then trying to wake up the sheeple.

Even the ones whom you would think are awake, are actually just sleep walking.

" . . . like the Cosa Nostra...."

sicily,marseilles&corsica were all put in business by lansky, and fronted ever since through their news,media&marketing as The Mob. The Mafia. Crime Personnified

 

meanwhile and in the meantime, like just a coupla centuries, The Criminal Unterweld Ubermenschen go without mention . . . unless getting their ring,assets&bottomlines kissed by congress

 

but. nevermind. just keep-talkin-to-the-hand: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwDbd4jQpkA&feature=related

 

that way you can as well continue to talk of Germany. and the german people. Greece. and the greek people. irish. italians. People, as PIIGGS, who/which appear/disappear/reappear out of pressboxes like the echolalia of a senor wences

calling all capitalists. communists. ventriloquists __always in that very meantime laughing their Totalitarian Laugh

 

 

 

THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT

The premise of this article is incorrect in the following manner:

 

It's the Bankster Criminal elite (Goldman, J.P. Morgan etc) that engineered this deflationary collapse.

He, if they wanted inflation, you better believe we would be having it boiling bond holders alive. 

Plus... deflationary fears have created a bid under the US$.

As they have programmed the sheep, that US debt is the holy grail.... natural resource stocks have few buyers... except the Master Planners that are scooping them up. 

Once the collapse is complete (to fit bankster/elite planning), the inflation match will be struck... and bonds will suck!

I don't give a fuck about who represents this third world POS country.

I never even had my hope up for the Supremes to show any spine yesterday- not after they screwed over the preferred shareholders at GM and Chrysler.

I hate every commercial touting green shit, I hate every politician in both parties. I hate every preferred race and  entitled elite fucker.

In short, I need to get the fuck out of this place and watch it degenerate from afar.
