This is old news, but all to many choose to ignore that this situation was put into place before Obama ever took office by the former Bush admin.

Do you really think Obama runs the fed gov? He is blocked every step of the way from actually taking the reigns of power that POTUS should hold.

What did you expect to happen after Gingrich and the republicans eliminated the laws that had kept the massive frauds schemes, such as those played out in the twenties, from being perpetrated?

All you people who buy into the free market con job, who vote and support politicians who actively seek to weaken our democracy, and put the control of our nation into the hands of the bankers, are responsible for this mess. Elimination of the laws that prevent fraud (regulations) is exactly what has turned control of our nation over to the bankers.

Just a little over a decade ago the U.S. was prosperous, and the U.S. middle class was growing once again. Republicans eliminated the laws preventing white collar crime, and here we are today, in this horrible mess.

What did the WW II generation do? They supported high taxes on the super rich and strong regulation of corporations, and high taxes on corporations. That formula worked, and that is what we should do, to wrestle control of our nation back from the ICBers.

here's a link that is closely related to the OP & thread.

it is moderately long...in that you will need to scroll the whole page...
but it does address the GS finger-of-fate in the Federal Reserve-the Treasury-in foreign central banks, etc

moneymorning.com...

Title: The Goldman Rule: Don't Let This Puppet Master Pull Your Strings


too many points to even cite...about the individuals & the lack of regulation or enforcement & the manipulation of rules of law to the benefit of the elite execs of GS (master-of-the-universe)

So now a team must be formed. Team contacts each person listed through whichever legal means necessary. Team then??? And then???

Current CEO of Goldman Sachs, Lloyd Blankfein: "An impish grin spreads across Blankfein’s face. Call him a fat cat who mocks the public. Call him wicked. Call him what you will. He is, he says, just a banker "doing God’s work".

I really don't know what to say....I mean, where does he go next? Into Mitt Romney's 2012 administration?

Glad to help. This site is stuffed with all you need to know to get started, the search function on ATS is your friend. As for getting messages out in your posts, find your voice in writing and you'll do great (that means write a lot and then some more).

Back on point. I talked to a buddy at Citigroup today, wishing him Happy Thanksgiving and all - he's middle management in the system and he's getting a huge six figure bonus this year; he doesn't care where the money comes from. That's indicative of the problem right there - no giving a damn as long he's getting paid handsomely.

OK, I get it (from searching the names on the list), these people have served within those roles within the Government and the bracketed names in the US Government list are the administration in which they served under.

I wish someone could have just said that. That is all I was asking.

And yes, I do feel stupid for not realising this earlier.

You just don't get it. The masters of puppets banksters control both parties. Obama is only meant to execute what orders they desire, just as Bush did. It's the same game in The Middle East, only he's bombing Lybia instead of Iraq.

You see, they create left vs right in order to keep the sheople herded and squabbling among eachother over domestic issues while they rape the planet internationally. Your hero Obama is just another hand picked yes man. Take a look at who is 2nd on Obama's list of top contributors. = Goldman Sachs. Now they are throwing their weight behind Romney, Look it up. Wake up my friend. ~SheopleNation

Top Contributors to Obama

And that's EXACTLY why protesting the government is pointless now. Go straight to the source...the companies controlling the government. Goldman Sachs is probably one of the most influential companies out there


The fact that the US is slowly tumbling towards being a 3rd world nation is because those very companies sucked out all the money...which worked for decades. But the people now simply don't have much left to give, which is why they now make their sock puppet politicians promote child labour (Gingrich).




The United States is quickly becoming a post industrial neo-3rd-world country. Partly as a consequence of worsening unemployment and lack of economic opportunity, falling real wages and household incomes, growing poverty and increasing concentration of wealth, the U.S. government faces a historic fiscal crisis. Dominant corporate influence over the U.S. government, particularly by large banks, weakening rule of law at the federal level and destructive tax policies are compounding the economic problems facing the United States.

Barring fundamental reforms or a hyperinflationary collapse of the U.S. dollar (due to the fiscal problems of the U.S. government), the deterioration of the U.S. economy will continue and accelerate. As the U.S. economy continues its decline, public health, nutrition and education, as well as the country’s infrastructure, will visibly deteriorate and the 3rd world status of the United States will become apparent.

After seeing the OP's post that claims Monsanto is the federal government, and going through and seeing just how many of those executives and board members had Republican ties (many) which I posted on that thread, I did the same to Goldman Sachs.

Lo and behold, the OP is being extremely dishonest in his presentation that only Dems are connected to Goldman Sachs. In fact I see MORE Republican-leaning executives than Democratic.

Check for yourself, it's too much to list:

Goldman Sachs - NNDB

But just to give you a sample, starting from the very top of the list (being the most current):

Peter K. Barker
www.nndb.com...
John McCain 2008
Romney for President


Geoffrey T. Boisi
www.nndb.com...
Party Affiliation: Republican
Bill Bradley for President
Brookings Institution Trustee
Bush-Cheney '04
Carnegie Corporation Trustee
Elizabeth Dole for President
Friends of Senator D'Amato 1998 Committee
George W. Bush for President
John McCain 2008
Knights of Malta
Joseph P. Kennedy Enterprises Trustee
McCain-Palin Compliance Fund
National Mentoring Partnership Co-Founder & Chairman
National Republican Senatorial Committee
Papal Foundation Trustee
Romney for President
Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee
Trilateral Commission


Josh Bolten
Josh BoltenAKA Joshua Brewster Bolten
www.nndb.com...
Party Affiliation: Republican
Executive summary: White House Chief of Staff, 2006-09
White House Chief of Staff (2006-09)
US Director, Office of Management and Budget (2003-06)
Council on Foreign Relations

And so on, etc., etc., etc.

I could just as easily have made a Venn Diagram showing as many Republicans connected to Goldman Sachs, using the same intellectually dishonest method as the OP.

This post would have been much better had it not been so partisan.

Thanks for bringing me in as "dishonest." Without the vitriol you proved a great point - corporatism is endemic of both parties. And it runs deep.

I call it like I see it. Had you compiled an honest list, you wouldn't have skipped over all the Republican-connected Goldman Sach execs. Just like the Monsanto list. You listed some small-time legal counsels yet managed to ignore a sitting Supreme Court Justice (Thomas), and former Chief of Staff to Bush.

That makes your list a partisan attack, and not a real attempt at rooting out the influence of money in government.

Fact is, all parties are bought, and that includes the Tea Party!

Perhaps. I rather think that it's because he found the list on geke.us, which is a partisan site. Go there and see for yourself.

Thanks for the heads up, I did Google the opening phrase and saw that it was cross-posted over many right-wing sites, just didn't think it was worth bothering to track down to it's origin. In each case, these sites all avoided making any mention of the Republican members that served or were connected to Goldman Sachs.

Both is necessary.
Kick out all the corrupted politicians and put them AND their accomplices on trial for financial terrorism... then make sure (legislative) that this kind of madness can never happen again.

You posted the same link as I did btw
but I appreciate spreading the info

The only problem is that when you dig deep enough you found out that it doesn't matter if is Republicans or Democrats Goldman Sach is behind our government regardless of who elite puppet party is in charge.
