GoldmanSachs666 Message Board

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 ripoff in 4 easy steps

After you read this, ask yourself "Does Goldman expect to be paid off again in the next downturn (coming this spring) or will they be satisfied with dumping all the toxic crap on the taxpayer via the Freddie/Fannie route?!"
How Goldman Sachs Made Tens Of Billions Of Dollars From The Economic Collapse Of America In Four Easy Steps

Investment banking giant Goldman Sachs has become perhaps the most prominent symbol for everything that is wrong with the U.S. financial system, but most Americans cannot even begin to explain what they do or how they have made tens of billions of dollars from the economic collapse of America. The truth is that what Goldman Sachs did was fairly simple, and there may not have even been anything "illegal" about it (although they are now being investigated by the SEC among others).

The following is how Goldman Sachs made tens of billions of dollars from the economic collapse of America in four easy steps....

Step 1: Sell mortgage-related securities that are absolute junk to trusting clients at vastly overinflated prices.

Step 2: Bet against those same mortgage-related securities and make massive bets against the U.S. housing market so that your firm will make massive profits when the U.S. economy collapses.

Step 3: Have ex-Goldman executives in key positions of power in the U.S. government so that bailout money can be funneled to entities such as AIG that Goldman has made these bets with so that they can get paid after they win their bets.

Step 4: Collect the profits - Goldman Sachs is having their "most successful year" and will end up reporting approximately $50 billion in revenue for 2009.

** regarding this line in the article "there may not have even been anything "illegal" about it ":
If you spread out a dollars worth of coins on to a table and arrange them into 4 equal piles (25 cents each), you CANNOT sell those piles at 60 cents each without committing fraud. Goldman knew fully well they were selling their 'financial innovations' for much more than the sum of its' parts.

Goldman Sachs Conspiracy: The proof is in “The Partnership.”please send this to someone who will help me get out of jail when the FED comes a lookin for me. Or someone who understands hi finance.
The fact that Goldman Sachs re released their book, one year after it’s original copyright date of Sept of 2008, in response to conspiracy theories, proves that the theories have some validity. It’s suspicious enough that the book, a 100 years in the making, was released just one month before the stock market crash. Yes, in the newly revised “Introduction” chapter, Goldman Sachs uses the word conspiracy. I am thrilled that the few of use that wrote on the subject had such an impact that Goldman Sachs found it nesscecary to re release their book.
They also added a last chapter entitled “A Perfect Storm” of course after they could see how Paulson’s inspired plot to crash the markets, and then loot the US Treasury played out. This new last chapter (released one year later) is preceeded by a chapter entitled “Before the Storm.” How cute is that? “Before the Storm” and a “Perfect Storm.” Well get this.
The 1st version came out one month before the stock market crash, and so them using the title “Before the Storm” many months before the crash, making Goldman look a hell of a lot smarter than anyone else. And the fact that they used the word “Before” in the heading of the last chapter of the book, insinuates that they are planning to re release their book after the crash?

What we must begin to look at as a nation is "the system" and "our government" that allowed this fraud with the full knowledge of the consequences.

While we are led to believe that our democracy functions as a result of "free" elections it becomes more and more apparent that it does not.

SciFi movies of years past depicted a country controlled by and ruled by corporations with little regard for humanity or mankind.

As we enter the second decade of the 21st century we are witnessing the premise in these old scifi movies coming true.

But control and manipulation as we are experiencing can only occur when "the people" allow it or better said when the people fear it.

There is much talk of our loss of freedoms in this country - even the erosion of our 1st and 5th Amendment rights. The right to protest is being stifled. People are simply "affraid" to do so.

The other aspect of control and manipulation is to keep a population in economic dire straights. When we struggle to survive and to provide the basic needs for our families we do not and cannot act against tyranny and control.

Power is very intoxicating. Many whom we have given power to are "intoxicated" with it.

We need to look at the very basis of our system. Begin to honor the Constitution and bring to justice those who disregard it be they elected officials or heads of corporations. A dual system of governance - one for them and one for the rest of us - will surly lead to more of the same.

More economic collapse - perhaps intentional - so as to continue the their goals of control.

With each act of terrorism we lose more freedoms. Fear is our biggest enemy. I believe that fear is used by more then just those radical elements in their Jihad.

Thomas Jefferson said it well: "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

Where are the Thomas Jefferson's of our times when we need them the most?

PPIP May Have INCREASED the Amount of Some Toxic Assets

Citigroup, Bank of America and other players are already gaming the program (and see this), which will create unintended consequences.
Bloomberg has some choice quotes:

It’s “absolutely ridiculous” that banks, which were expected to reduce their holding of such volatile mortgage securities, bought them before the government program was running and may now profit, said Michael Schlachter, managing director of Wilshire Associates, the Santa Monica, California- based investment-consulting firm. “Some of them created this mess, and they are making a killing undoing it” ...

“Any time the government says, ‘We’re going to buy something in the securities market,’ they’re putting out a sign that says, ‘Free money, come and get it’,” he said.

Well yes . . . isn't that what looting is all about?
