Does the looting of America by Goldman Sachs and Hank Paulson remind anyone of the looting of Russia by the oligarchs in 1991?


Trillions and trillions and trillions and trillions have been lost.

But oh, you'll see that after the dust settles, some people got p.a.i.d.

It was an interesting scam though. They took the money out of the companies first. Then when the looted companies were failing, the government (which they ran too) came in and put the money back in. "Too big to fail" they told us. Had to do it.

F*cking brilliant.

Damn, these grifters were good.

Real good.

Makes you wonder who the one true mastermind was.

And if we can't get the money back, we sure as hell better start putting some of these f*ckers in jail.

Starting with The Orange Man.

Great analogy.

Yeltsin was Clinton's "yes-man". Most Americans remember him as a friend. To most Russians, he was the constantly drunk President who allowed the country to be looted by criminals. He is also "credited" by most intelligent Russians as being foolish enough to "throw the baby out with the bathwater" regarding the many aspects of the Soviet era that actually worked well.

The U.S. .... The same... those with access to politicians and decision makers can get money under one condition: they have to prove that they have been absolutely and completely inept in their ability to manage large sums of money in the past. If you manage money well, the government has nothing to offer you. I am an American, but live in Sevastopol Ukraine, and speak Russian.... I have heard many oligarch stories.. As an American, seeing this happen to my own country is quite painful.

The book will be called:

“How Europe f@cked the world while America was busy defending it”

Small print on cover:

'Connecting the dots between the pushers of a European Union and the pushers of the Third Reich, the populace blamed the bankers while Brussels initiated another dark age'

WHAT?
Are you the same person from HP?

What made HP unique was that we all knew:

IT WAS THE STUPID GREEDY SHEEPLE WHO DID NOT DO THE MATH AND THOUGHT ‘THINGS ARE DIFERENT THIS TIME’.

When you move from a level of taking responsibility to a place where you blame others, you not only lose, but the conspiracy gets thicker and thicker until you crash.

Are we now going to a place where we are victims of the wooo mighty devil?
(AKA = the scary people who challenge the comfy thoughts our mommy fed us)

Evolution is a slooooow process

also they threatened the congress with martial law if the bailout was not passed, which i believe was not a empty threat.

but paper money that is stolen can be rendered useless if we change the game plan. but who in this government has the balls to go against the flow....? name one man or woman?

vanilla ice said...

First poster and Mitesh: great video links.

"They are buying our paper because we have the weapons. We've been operating on the central banking warfare model for 500 years."

Something to think about.

Probably your best post yet!!!!

The Financial barons have run the show for years in relative secrecy. The only "silver lining" to this whole debacle is now it is blatantly obvious who some of the major players are in the parasitical "financial elite" who run this country.

Remember that when Paulson unveiled the very first bailout plan he wanted absolute say (dictator) over where the money went, he wanted no questions asked about where it went, and wanted all actions by himself and his associates beyond legal action (non-prosecutable).

His decree was the most arrogant and obviously self-serving set of demands from ANY "government" official EVER!!!

He might have well have said to the US taxpayer..."Give me ALL your money. Trust me and don't worry.....look over there!!!...the Goodyear Blimp!!! (then sound of footsteps running away from eyes staring upward).

I hope "King Henry" (and all his cronies) develops a slow painful form of cancer and rots from the inside while enjoying the trillions he stole from us.

Now there's an artful apology: the owners/designers certainly acted in good faith; had no responsibility nor any idea that poor people with bad credit can't afford to own insanely-overpriced houses.

And so are most healers, philosophers, writers, scientist, charity organizers, inventers, engineers, innovators, artist and Jesus himself as well as all the apostles.

Yup; the children of Abraham, Issac and Jacob are indeed a very small minority, les then 1 half % of 1% of global population yet are in the top percentile of every single competency.

It is no wonder your Furor wasn’t man enough to face his own life,
What a coward!
What a chicken!

as much as I hate the Orange Man i'm starting to think he is the lesser of many evils. he's like the crack dealer: he just had the crack and the people couldnt not take another hit. he didnt steal or sell, he just offered. and they took money they couldnt afford. meanwhile Paulson and Geithner and robbing us BLIND and looting the entire US financial system. but i guess that doesnt bother you as much since Geithner was an Obama appointee, and we all understand you are in love w/the shady non-American citizen US President.

IBM Cuts Jobs as It Seeks Stimulus Money

The company will lay off as many as 5,000 U.S. workers in its Global Business Services unit, transferring some of the work they performed to India, according to media reports.

Any job transfers IBM may make to India would occur at a sensitive time, as the recession deepens and as the U.S. unemployment rate climbs.

Moreover, the company would be cutting high-skill positions domestically as it and others jockey for new business from the $787 billion stimulus package Congress enacted in February—primarily to help create U.S. jobs.

Why would any bank want to buy back bad asset if loan modification are not working.

Will these banks which are currently buying back many of the toxic assets be able to find buyers, if not who will finally be looted.

Though lenders are boosting their attempts to curb record-high home foreclosures, fewer than half of loan modifications made at the end of last year actually reduced borrowers' payments by more than 10 percent, data released Friday show.

The report, based on an analysis of nearly 35 million loans worth more than $6 trillion, was published by the federal Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Office of Thrift Supervision.

It ain't rocket science...

Just buy enough 'legislators' to transform existing laws into loophole-infested legal abominations that decriminalize fraud and embezzlement.
