Goldman Sachs Hires Law Firm To Shut Blogger's Site


www.telegraph.co. uk

The bank has instructed Wall Street law firm Chadbourne & Parke to pursue blogger Mike Morgan, warning him in a recent cease-and-desist letter that he may face legal action if he does not close down his website.
Florida-based Mr Morgan began a blog entitled "Facts about Goldman Sachs" – the web address for which is goldmansachs666.com...
...Mr Morgan, a registered investment adviser, has added a number of posts to the site, including one entitled "Does Goldman Sachs run the world?".

Goldman Sachs is attempting to shut down a dissident blogger who is extremely critical of the investment bank, its board members and its practices.

Apparently in his latest posts Morgan is asking if Goldman Sachs is running the world. Mr. Morgan has linked the bank's name with the Number of the Beast, 666. Mr Morgan is unlikely to go down without a fight.

Henry Paulson is a former CEO of Golman Sachs, maybe Morgan is onto something here with the 666 comparison!

Morgan claims he has followed all legal requirements to own and operate the website, and that the header of the site clearly states that the content has not been approved by the bank.

So why is Goldman Sachs bothered/worried then?

How much a Goldman Sachs and its brethren profit off their positions as Fed insiders, stockholders and, as with Goldman, whose "former" personel serving as the Secretaries of the Treasury" is unknown. This is largely because we are kept from looking, and the private Fed is exempt from the Freedom Of Information Act.

Clearly, they have us coming and going and the potential for profiteering thru inside information and policy-making influence is enormous. This corruption and profiteering can also easily escape detection via partners in foreign markets where oversight is missing, and political influence is all-powerful.

S & F


It's getting to be so obvious it's silly. Odds that this will be reported by US MSM........0. If you want real news though check out CNN where they just spent a half hour covering the interview of Levi (Sarah Palins daughter's baby dady) from the Tyra Banks show. Now there's news

Just another attempt to silence our right to free speech.
Makes me sick.

I had a hunch this is he case, after seeing money from other firms flow into Goldman Sachs. Morgan must be onto something to tic off Goldman Sachs.

is Goldman Sachs the mastermind behind all this economic mess?!?.

They have nothing on him that could stick in court.

Mr. Morgan appears very determined and has good experience dealing with faceless corporations who try to quash bad press:


Mr Morgan explained how he went through a similar battle with US homebuilder Lennar a few years ago after he set up a website to collect information on what he alleged was shoddy workmanship in its homes. The pair eventually settled out of court.



Mr Morgan adds that if Goldman manages to shut down his site, he has a number of other domain names registered.


Hopefully these Gestapo pigs just p*ss off already and realise it's quite common knowledge they're not well-liked by anyone.

what the blogger is doing with the web-site is just like what Goldman Sachs
does with naked 'Shorts' on the Gold & metals futures...
Attacking an industry

except GS insists that containing the negative publicity the blogger publishes is an unethical attack on their 'Brand Name'...


what's good for the goose is good for the gander, is my take on the situation.

(now the task of filling another 400 words into the content of this reply... a most daunting task in my humble opinion. and with that string of thpought the 'bar' under the reply box informes me that a mere 185 characters remain to be scribed as text for this reply to meet the requirements of publishing a long & detailed and therefore thought provoking reply post.

In these last 26 characters...i am now permitted to {SUBMIT REPLY}

As an internet marketing and SEO expert for the past 14 years. I can tell you that the company is worried more about trademark protection rather than whatever paranoid delusions the author has.
Been there done that with domain names

Here is a link to get you started

en.wikipedia.org...

He could have choosen any other domain name but he took the easy way. He could have used goldman sachs 666 in his title instead but he was lazy.

Goldman Sachs going after this guy just shows they may indeed have something to hide why else do you go after some blogger unless they are afraid that he may uncover something,perhaps where all that bailout money really goes?

The bailout money hard at work, used against the taxpayers that bailed out their worthless behinds.

Let's see if ok to steal bailout money, but when someone exercises their first amendment rights and speaks out against a crooked firm they use bully tactics to suppress the truth.

So much for freedom of speech.

LOL, this is what Morgan wants. Media attention for his website. He's playing Goldman Sachs right into his hand with the lawsuit.

Good for him. I'm well aware of Goldman Sachs and I have to agree with the guy. Nothing wrong with exposure. It's amazing what Goldman Sachs has gotten away with since inception.

From some experience with this sort of thing - there's more to it than on the surface.

Goldman-Sachs is very aware there are thousands of sites and bloggers making every possible claim about them. Founded and unfounded.

They are also aware that going after one to shut him down provides him a million dollars of free publicity and attention.

As this is ATS the immediate conclusion is that he's leaking the truth and they want to shut him up. If so they are making him the winner and footing the bill.

As I don't have the gist of what he says I can't comment further.


But it sounds like more than fat cat corporation vs champion of truth blogger.

Dang! I was all set to root for Morgan and laugh at how GS hates this but you have made me stretch by brain and think of it a bit differently and more deeply. Gotta love ATS.

Goldman Sachs going to report near record profits?

I mean wow. They want to quell free speech at the same time stealing from the American taxpayer. I think there needs to be a protest outside of Goldman Sachs.....

The only paranoid delusions my be those of ats posters, not the author of the article or the blog.

How is this 'taking the easy way'?

Check this out...perhaps it is information like this that GS is worried about.

This wont be reported by the mainstream media...and we will not hear our complicit congress bringing charges of corruption against GS! No...and why not...they are insiders, along with the Fed, bilking the taxpayers in a giant ponzi scheme!


How much a Goldman Sachs and its brethren profit off their positions as Fed insiders, stockholders and, as with Goldman, whose "former" personel serving as the Secretaries of the Treasury" is unknown.

Still lacking details, I can say what commonly happens. Goldman Sachs legal advisers are made aware that someone has potentially damaging and possibly incriminating information. They could successfully clobber the guy and his inside sources through the legal system on a number of charges ranging from defamation to breaching confidentiality agreements.

This would take years for a final judgment if the guy has the resources to fight an effective and from their side purposely protracted case.

Meanwhile his compromising information has gotten out there already. So it's about damage control. Shutting down the site buys them time to get some kind of injunction, or maybe try to make him an offer he can't refuse. They may be able to convince him that fighting them through the courts will destroy him financially whether he wins or loses.

It will be interesting to see how this one plays out.


Mike
