Blankfein Trolls Trump, Compares Him To A Solar Eclipse

Back on June 1, in his first ever tweet (after being a silent member of Twitter since 2011), Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein slammed Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate change agreement, which he called “a setback for the environment and for the U.S.'s leadership position in the world.”

Fast forward to today when the Goldman CEO, in his capacity as the former boss of Trump's chief economy advisor (and most likely future head of the Federal Reserve, Gary Cohn), took another veiled swipe at the Trump administration when in what appeared to be a subtweet targetting Donald Trump, said "Wish the moon wasn't the only thing casting a shadow across the country. We got through one, we'll get through the other. #SolarEclipse2017"

One assumes that Blankfein was addressing Trump (indirectly) as the only person left making any economic decisions, now that Steve Bannon is gone, is his former right hand man, Gary Cohn. Which begs the question: is Blankfein's latest critique just more carefully staged theater, meant to elevate the CEO of the "vampire squid" in the eyes of the general public and shape him into a kind, caring, nurturing idealist ready to carry the ideals of progressives everywhere, or was the tweet an indication that despite the dominance of the now undisputed dominance of the "Goldman circle" inside the White House, Bannon still remains a key decision-maker, even if banished from the Oval Office.

Whatever the right answer, it should provide a welcome distraction as former Goldman COO Gary Cohn does everything in his power to sneak through a new tax code that benefits the likes of, well, Goldman Sachs.

One of their most lucrative rackets is owning prisons.  they are masters at employing slave labor to manufacture license plates.  Trump ran on ending corporate owned prisons....he swamped on that promise along with all his others.  17 year old kids whose only crime is caught smoking weed and having no family or mentors to stand for them get jailed for life building trinkets for Goldman profit.  America.  Land of the free.

Blankfein Trolls Trump, Compares Him To A Solar EclipseMy response: Just another MARXIST PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL GREEDY, CORRUPT BANKER that is part of the VILE DEEP STATE.Blankfein is part of the CANCER that now infests America.Another name for Goldman Sachs is GOVERNMENT SECURITIES. If the US Government (US TAXPAYER) had NOT bailed these guys out from the DERIVATIVES MESS they were part of in 2008-09, Goldman Sachs would NOT EXIST today.Remember Blankfein is an HRC supporter and corrupt to the core.John 8:44 (NIV)You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Indeed, all must come to an understanding of what is going on. SATAN is carrying out his plan and that means total chaos. Our only response at this point is to point to the rock that is higher than I, for he has always been a refuge to me. All the other stuff is going to happen, the wheels are in motion and while the river may bend and eddy, it's final destination is known. Be prepared.

The goldmen boys were maneuvering to make money on carbon credits.  International bankers like to be involved in trades, as well as creation of money.With the Paris accord dead, then long plans of Goldmen boys were thwarted.  Never take these people at face value, they are rent seekers to their core.This is from 2008:https://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/11/12/goldman-sachs-buys-into-carb…

It doesn't look as though the LOSERS of this election fully appreciate how unstable their positions in DC could become.

There remains a two party system in the USA.....US and THEM.

THEM is at most about 5000 people inside the DC Beltway-and about another 3000-5000K mostly in LA/Boston/NY.

THEM has no idea of the whoop-ass waiting for them if they
continue to ignore and impede the will of the American People -temporarily and at the MOMENT expressed through Donald Trump.

THEM clearly hasn't yet figured out that Trump is the symptom
of their problems with US.

He is not their problem
