Goldman Sachs, president of the US

Goldman Sachs, the president of the US

by Jon Rappoport

August 21, 2017

In this article, I’m not going to trace and list all the Obama and Trump appointees who have ties to Goldman Sachs. The sources are easily available. The Hillary Clinton connections are clear as well.

The point is, Goldman and its allies can exert enormous influence on the direction of the trillion-dollar casino called the stock market.

And the stock market is the universally perceived indicator of the health or illness of the US economy.

The economy is Trump’s trump card. If the stock market plummets and stays down, his credibility as president takes a hit of far more serious proportions than anything we’ve seen so far.

Keep in mind, as well, that giant pension funds all over the US and giant insurance companies (and other entities) invest in the stock market—and these organizations’ stability, as endangered as it is right now, would fracture in far more serious ways, if the stock market collapsed.

Super-banks like Goldman Sachs therefore hold the political fate of a president, any president, in their hands.

“Play ball with us. Otherwise, we can take down the market.”

What does Goldman Sachs want, aside from a free hand to wheel and deal inside and outside the law re investing and trading?

Goldman wants:

The basic survival of Globalist “free trade” (no tariffs)—the cornerstone of mega-corporate control of the world economy.

Through US military threats and interventions and attacks, the prosperity of the military industrial complex.

The continued prosperity of the pharmaceutical cartel—despite its avaricious market practices and outpouring of destructive medical drugs.

These are a few of Goldman’s top priorities.

But of course, Goldman has a Plan B, if they decide Trump’s presidency is too shaky. And now that several corporate CEOs and financiers have left Trump’s corporate council over the recent Charlottesville violence and Trump’s response to it, causing the president to disband that council, Goldman is obviously mulling Plan B.

What would that be?

Another 2008 financial debacle and yet another round of massive federal bailouts?

Or a war? Wars float all financial boats that count in the eyes of elites.

Perhaps the now-departed Steve Bannon, who used to work for Goldman, would have a few interesting points to make on these issues.

During the presidential campaign, Trump issued a number of statements attacking Goldman Sachs and claiming he was immune from their influence. That was false. Trump obviously knew the score, as did Obama, as did Hillary Clinton.

Now he is hoping Goldman will hold the stock market together for him.

At the outset of his presidency, I wrote that I supported Trump on two major counts. He was mercilessly attacking major media news, and he had stopped Hillary Clinton in her tracks. I said everything else was up for grabs.

A lot of that grabbing is being done by Goldman Sachs.

    Always remember the golden rule, he who has the gold makes the rules.
    That would be the man with the gold in his sacks.
    In the land of the blind the one eyed man is king.
    Now look at the back of a dollar from your wallet.
    Trump was (s)elected so he can be the face of the collapse when enemy of humanity bankster scum pull the plug on the economy.
    Also the BRICS nations are actively moving against the fiat currency dollar.
    Nixon fulfilled his appointed role when he opened up talks with China that eventually led to trade and when he took the U.S. dollar off the gold standard.

        Arcadia, I was reading something and came across this information about arcadia I thought I would share with you.

        Et in Arcadia Ego” inscribed on the arch between the two bears is an esoteric reference to Arcadia, the Greek city where Danaus and his fifty daughters introduced the worship of the mother goddess. Arcadia represents the Rosicrucian’s envisioned Paradise on earth.

        “Arcadia was one of the primary mystery names given to the state of the world in a Golden Age, and the whole Arcadian imagery and allegory is that of a Utopia or Paradise on earth that might be achieved. The world is on the threshold of that achievement now, according to the way the evolutionary cycles of divine law work. Jesus Christ and the Buddha prepared us for it in an outstanding way; Francis Bacon…and the Rosicrucian Brotherhood have inaugurated it. All have used Arcadian imagery, the meaning of which pierces deep, right to the heart of all mysteries.” – 889:15

        According to Holy Blood, Holy Grail, a sacred river flows from Arcadia to the underworld. This underground stream, Alpheus, represents a demonic bloodline to which the the Plantard bloodline belongs.

        “Arcadia…is frequently denoted by a fountain or a tombstone, both of which are associated with an underground stream. This stream is usually equated with the river Alpheus—the central river in the actual geographical Arcadia in Greece, which flows underground and is said to surface again at the Fountain of Arethusa in Sicily. From the remotest antiquity to Coleridge’s ‘Kubla Khan’ the river Alpheus has been deemed sacred. Its very name derives from the same root as the Greek word alpha, meaning ‘first’ or ‘source.’…

        “…the underground stream…might connote an unacknowledged and thus ‘subterranean’ bloodline…

        “…the Plantard family–lineal descendants of Dagobert II and the Merovingian dynasty. In 1548, the ‘Prieuré documents’ state, Jean des Plantard had married Marie de Saint-Clair–thus forging another link between his family and that of the Saint-Clair/Gisors…

        “…the specific phrase in Poussin’s painting—’Et in Arcadia Ego’…appeared in an earlier painting by Poussin, in which the tomb is surmounted by a skull and does not constitute an edifice of its own, but is embedded in the side of a cliff. In the foreground of this painting a bearded water deity reposes in an attitude of brooding moroseness—the river god Alpheus, lord of the underground stream…” – 31:139-140;177,180-2

          terri – how lovely of you to share this info. especially at a time when re-inspiration and an ancient tale is so welcome.

          yes – poussin. and, guercino, whose et in arcadia ego i knew first.
          i was very taken with the paintings/story and initially used iinarcadia. some of the info you included i did not know or did not connect with with other info.
          thank you for that.

          the controversy over whether or not the skull was meant to communicate ‘even in arcadia, death’, the
          memento mori theme, i adjusted for our time and
          understood it to mean death, yes, but not the death of paradise or the sweet dwellers therein, but the death of what would see it undone.

          but the paradise on earth is a personal ‘theme’ for this lifetime. along those lines, just to help me stay on path, my sun, moon, mercury and venus are all in taurus, if that means anything to you – and likely it does.

          you mention the st clairs, merovingians and the plantard family (plantagenets, maybe) – i am wildly into genealogy and as i type in this window the one open to my left is i have managed to
          get back to bc times. it is time travel and it is thrilling to me.

          lol. this is the second time that you ‘caught’ me just as i was inundating myself with your forthcoming comment content.

          i am so delighted with this exchange that i wish i could sit down with you outdoors on a warm night and by candlelight enjoy a nice crusty baguette with nut cheeses and grapes, wine, bubbly water and a conversation that is still going when the sun comes up.

          love and cheers –

            Yes, inspiration !

            inspiration- c. 1300, “immediate influence of God or a god,” especially that under which the holy books were written, from Old French inspiracion “inhaling, breathing in; inspiration” (13c.), from Late Latin inspirationem (nominative inspiratio), noun of action from past participle stem of Latin inspirare “blow into, breathe upon,” figuratively “inspire, excite, inflame,” from in- “in” (from PIE root *en “in”) + spirare “to breathe” (see spirit (n.)).

            And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. [Genesis ii.7]

            The sense evolution seems to be from “breathe into” to “infuse animation or influence,” thus “affect, rouse, guide or control,” especially by divine influence. Inspire (v.) in Middle English also was used to mean “breath or put life or spirit into the human body; impart reason to a human soul.” Literal sense “act of inhaling” attested in English from 1560s. Meaning “one who inspires others” is attested by 1867.

            – is so important. To be an inspiration to each other, to rise higher in consciousness, understanding, happiness….

            i love word origins, i found this good website where i got the above
            i had to find a good website, because my daughter is always asking me about words, where they come from, and she is only 7. I don’t always remember their origins.
            Understanding and discovering the past, genealogy, not only of ourselves but our whole world, and of course words is so very interesting.

            So glad you enjoyed what I posted, i immediately thought of you when I read it, and cut and pasted it so i could share it with you. To talk and converse is becoming a lost art, isn’t it. Your suggestion sounds delightful! I haven’t tried nut cheeses yet, but i was just reading about some different stores who make and sell really good nut cheeses, many consider them artisan. .. Trader Joes has a good selection of wine at very reasonable prices. It is always fun to try different ones. I prefer “cooler” wines to “warm” ones. I can usually tell energetically before I buy if i will like it or not.
            Peace, love, cheers and blessings A! Terri

      So what if they pull the plug on the manipulated stock markets? It does not have to affect any of us. It would be a great opportunity for the people to return our Republic to its original intent. Throw out the usurious bankers as Jesus did, and create our own currency based on our own value as American citizens, sovereign, happy and free.
      Iceland s government used this and the advice of our dear friends Jack and Margy to throw out the banksters. What are Americans waiting for?

      Where are all the Christians who claim to follow Jesus’s teachings?There are enough of them and others to take down the criminals who insist we live as debt slaves, as they have for centuries.

      We can look at things as disasters or opportunities. we can remain afraid at falsities or push thru the illusion of fear and disaster and create a beautiful world, as it is in nature.
      Abundance is our birthright, and we need only look to nature to see all the blessings waiting for us to say yes to. It is just a choice.

        People have to get beyond this “create our own currency” meme and address the issue of how money ought to be distributed. Does anybody really want to have Congress holding monopoly power over the money supply (of which, by the way, “currency” constitutes less than 5%)? It would be as corrupt as the present system, with the additional disadvantage of being worse administered.

        Money is highly divisible and confers power. In a democracy, people are purported to hold the power, but this is obviously inconsistent with money originating in and being distributed by a financial monopoly. There should be a constitutional provision that money will be flowed into the economy ab initio through the citizenry–the only arrangement that would give personal freedom substantial meaning. The technical aspects of this reform were worked out by Anglo-Scottish engineer C.H. Douglas a century ago, but his name and analysis have been suppressed by the commercial news sources. As he warned (and as people at last are realizing in droves): finance and the media are concentric.

        • Terri says:

          Bob, your comment is completely uninformed and contains many inaccuracies. You obviously did not even bother reading about the currency proposal, which doesn’t surprise me. I will mention two things; as far as democracy goes, our country is not a democracy it is a constitutional republic. What you say about a congressional monopoly is completely false. Get back to me when you actually do some studying and learning and have something real to contribute.
          You are obviously another victim of the public fool system.

    One thing that I’ve noticed is that most Ministers of Finance in a lot of countries have been former Goldman Sachs people.

  3. From Quebec says:

    Ron Paul noted that there’s a lot of chaos in Washington right now, with an “unpredictable president” and those who are inclined to “tear him apart” but if the market takes that big of a tumble, he doesn’t see it as Trump’s fault.

    “It’s all man-made. It’s not the fault of Donald Trump in the last week. If the market crashes tomorrow and we have a great depression, he didn’t do it in six months. It took more like six or ten years to cause all these problems that we’re facing,” he said.


    I believe that Trump is smarter than Goldman Sachs. This is why he met with most of them. Now, he knows who are the bad apples and the good ones. Because, all people working for Goldman Sachs are not all corrupted.

    It might be a hard fight, but in the end, Trump will win.

    • bob klinck says:

      Goldman Sachs owns all the brains that can be bought. I wouldn’t pooh-pooh this as a resource.

    • Michael says:

      “I don’t think the president wants to be in charge. I think he wants to sit on his couch and yell at his TV screen and tweet things, but he’s almost happy to be able to kind of get it out of his system and not have anyone listen to him. I think his optimal equilibrium is hectoring Jeff Sessions but Jeff Sessions not quitting, or tweeting out the thing about transgender service members and the military ignoring him, or tweeting out threats to North Korea and not actually changing American posture.

      I think that that we have arrived at a new equilibrium in which both the interior members of his staff, the actual federal bureaucracy, the US Congress, the US public, the global public, and global leaders all basically understand the president is fundamentally a bullshit artist and you just shouldn’t listen to what he says.”

  4. Greg C. says:

    It was a nice dream while it lasted, Trump. We want to believe in freedom and in an authentic working economy, and you sounded like the guy. But freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose, and the Goldman Sachs economy will someday give us that freedom.

    • Nancy says:

      I think your wrong Goldman will not save any one but themselves. Those of us who have our heads above water will not be saved by anyone. We ar collateral damage. Even the Rothchilds are trying to eliminate 1/2 the population because there are to many of us. You migh and might not be saved all. It maybe your just told, breath to much, or have to many health problem. It’s only a matter of time that the Cherri’s banks pull the plug on us all.

  5. Excellent analysis; thanks for sharing. It’s possible to one step further though as it is not just about intangible corporations. It is an oligarchic system of a couple of incredibly wealthy and powerful dynasties who currently can further concentrate their wealth and power. We need to start to name these individuals as accountable human beings rather than referring to corporate constructs that are shielding unimaginable personal greed and cowardliness. It is intentional that they don’t use their means to show their face and convey a better message than leaving us with a system working for them and against the majority of the world population, which is facing adverse conditions due to this wealth concentration.

  6. Goldman Sachs backing all sides? (something the Israelites are fond of doing, I’m told)

    Jon, are you saying they are the humanity’s Damocles sword?

    Trump mercilessly attacked major media news, and he stopped Hillary Clinton in her tracks.

    Hillary in the those Mao pantsuits.
