Old data but still interesting.
Hey, it wouldn’t be the first time Wall Street has done business with people like this, and I put nothing past Goldman Sachs.
The below appears to be yet another reason Goldman should have been left to die in 2008.
A picture I took of an ad on Wall Street in 2012.
Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and author of the best-selling bookClinton Cash, appeared on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily to give a status report on President Trump’s efforts to “drain the swamp” of Washington corruption.
Unfortunately, Schweizer saw little sign of progress.
Actually poker is a way fairer game than the one Goldman often plays.
Government Sachs, the bailed out and the connected. They always seem to pop up. From Fed appointments to the Treasury to the many little nooks and crannies within the power structure, Goldman is always there.
As soon as I heard that Mnunchin was coming in I knew we were headed for trouble on this point.
Goldman Sachs is arguably the most crony company in the world and they do quite well with the Fed system the way it is. Not to mention the nice bailout the Fed oversaw from which Goldman benefited immensely. Might not want to look too closely there. Don’t want to uncover anything that causes a headache for the bank,
I’m surprised that this hasn’t happened before to Government Sachs.
This headline comes from CNBC and is misleading. These companies don’t “make the most money from the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT,” Taxpayers are making these companies rich, not the government. It’s not the government’s money. It’s yours. Too many people forget this.
Why are we going into massive debt, in part, to pad the bottom lines of these companies?
Darn if Goldman doesn’t always weasel its way into power. It’s very disappointing to see what is arguably the most crony company in the world being embraced by Trump. Goldman it must be remembered should be dead. It should have died in 2008. Belly up. Door nail. But Hank Paulson, Bush’s Treasury Secretary made sure the the company he used to head (along with most of his buddies on Wall Street) were indemnified and then some courtesy of the American taxpayer.
Swamps are hard to drain.
One particularly remarkable thing about these speeches is that it took Wikileaks to get them out to the public. Clinton gave dozens of speeches after her failed 2008 run and yet no recording or partial recording of these speeches emerged to our knowledge. No one had their phone on? No one?
Regardless the details are out now and they reveal about what many people expected, someone who is very cozy with the banking industry and who seemed to take some pride in the fact that her (mostly) newly amassed wealth (largely from speeches for $200,00+) separated her from the petty middle class.
Hillary with Goldman Sach’s CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
Goldman is concerned NOW about “pay to play” rules. It was less concerned in 2008 when it was Obama’s biggest private contributor. And Hillary Clinton donations still appear to be OK.
I have a soft spot in my heart for Triumph. Always have.
And don’t worry Dems Triumph is definitely in your camp in the end.
Not sure what the point of this is. Do some neocons think that this is enough of a wrench to derail Trump? Seems a rather desperate attempt at this point. How is this guy supposed to get ballot access?
And there is an obvious choice at this point for those who are inclined in the conservative direction (but not neoconservative direction which is likely the issue here) in Gary Johnson. And he has ballot access.
It’s been a weird election.
This, dear readers, is how it works. The rules, as we saw with the Comey announcement a few weeks ago do not apply to everyone. Some people and banks are even too big to even embarrass or shame, never mind fail or jail.
