According to the Collins English Dictionary 10th Edition fraud can be defined as: "deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage".[1] In the broadest sense, a fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; the related adjective is fraudulent. The specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and also a civil law violation. Defrauding people or entities of money or valuables is a common purpose of fraud, but there have also been fraudulent "discoveries", e.g. in science, to gain prestige rather than immediate monetary gain

Goldman Sachs: Crime Watch

As the year 2009 draws to an end and the new year 2010 begins perhaps we as Americans can look forward to justice and to the return of the American way of life where opportunity exists for everyone and anyone.  

As we reflect back on our efforts here this past year, we hope we have played a small part by keeping you - the public - informed.  While this site is dedicated solely to Goldman Sachs, don't for a minute think that they alone are responsible for the misery we have been living through.  The entire banking system  along with The Federal Reserve and our very own Treasury Department - and their leaders - have fault and blame.  Presidents of the United States going back to Bill Clinton have been active participants in the execution of what George Bush the 1st called "The New World Order".  Interestingly enough "The New World Order" was first mentioned back in the late 1700's by Meyer Rothschild - the creator of the Central Banking System - who believed he could rule the world by controlling the economies and money of nations.  As you see daily at the top of this blog, he said, "Let me control the money of a nation and I care not who makes its laws".  So with that said and the fact that his family and heirs are still very much involved in international finance and banking, it is posslble that "his" plan has been executed by many if not most of our Presidents.  

It is apparent that "big money", those "too big to fail", the biggest being Goldman Sachs,  have control of this country and its' people.  But it also begs the question, what laws have been broken by these controlling banks who reward themselves lavishly?  It also begs the question, how is it that these "too big to fail" are the only ones profiting from a crisis they brought upon us?  

It was reported yesterday that "we" are giving another $3.5 billion to GMAC as a result of "losses(?)" they have sustained in their mortgage divisions.  First let's all be aware that the mortgage companies GMAC owns (Residential Capital and Ditech) were making loans at the speed of light, under the same lax to none underwriting guidelines used by all other lenders, mortgage brokers and mortgage bankers  - most of whom are out of business.  Know also that GMAC is partially owned by Cerberus Capital Management, LP, the same company that owns Chrysler and whose top guy is former Treasury Secretary John W. Snow having been appointed to that position in 2003 by Pres. George W. Bush. 

So will the year 2010 be the same with no change for the "fat cat" bankers and no relief for the American people?  I for one hope not.  By the efforts of our contributors and the many others in and out of media we devote our time and efforts to right the wrongs, get justice, make a difference and truly accomplish change.

You will see by the links to other stories below (not our usual daily links) that there is a lot of talk about wrong doing, illegal activities and more.  We are not a few in this quest for justice as there are many others.  We along with these others are a voice to be heard by our politicians and law enforcers as the truth requires action.  

Our nation has always had far too many homeless and hungry.  Too many sick and dying for lack of available health coverage. And most important, too many hungry and homeless children who may never have the opportunities available in the past.  Our education system is amongst the lowest in developed countries in the world.  Yet the "fat cat" bankers along with the elite class of politicians we have created care not about any of this, they care only for themselves driven by greed and the determination to own all the wealth they have been and are taking from the people.

We are in the midst of a Revolution.  A Revolution not of and by the people but a Revolution against the people who seem to be fulfilling Meyer Rothschllds plan.

Let us stand up and speak out in 2010.  We can take back control.  We can reverse this cycle of robbing from the poor to give to the rich.  Can any of you think of a better place to put the next $3.5 billion of our future generations money then giving it to GMAC/Cerberus?

Investors could only lose in Goldman's Caymans deals

Goldman said those investors were fully informed of the risks they were taking.

These Cayman Islands deals, which Goldman assembled through the British territory in the Caribbean, a haven from U.S. taxes and regulation, became key links in a chain of exotic insurance-like bets called credit-default swaps that worsened the global economic collapse by enabling major financial institutions to take bigger and bigger risks without counting them on their balance sheets.

The full cost of the deals, some of which could still blow up on investors, may never be known.
