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 Links and News - April 16, 2010 - Featuring Larry's Corner

The is the headline many of us have been waiting years for.  The falling of the gavel of JUSTICE.
In our DISCLAIMER, our founder Mike Morgan wrote:
This website provides information to demonstrate how destructive they are to our lives and the hopes and dreams of our children.
And how true that statement has become.  This, I am sure is a great day for him as well as it is for me and all the volunteers who have contributed to this blog since its beginning.

While this is just a civil suit and carries no threat of criminal charges or punishment, it is the beginning of what I believe will be a tsunami for the financial industry and those that have dubbed themselves Too Big Too Fail (TBTF).  The investigation by the SEC and the prosecution of this case will open the flood gates for what I have called "The Greatest Fraud inthe History of the World" for the past three years.

I believe many top executives from the other TBTF financial institutions might just be heading for the hills and I am sure that the shredders are working overtime at many an office.  In addition, I believe many current and past members of our government like Robert Rubin, Hank Paulson, Tim Geithner along with a host of other Goldmanites who have passed through that revolving door of government both heare and abroad/  (Watch the CBS video below as they list some of these people)

This long overdue SEC action should prompt investigations into the actions of Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, WAMU, Countrywide, Wachovia, Wells Fargo and Bank of America as well.  More importantly this SEC action could and should open the door for criminal investigations and charges which are also long overdue   The FBI announced back in 2008 that they were investigating 14 unknown banks for possible fraud but would not mention which ones nor has that announcement ever been followed up and updated.  My belief is that it was another government attempt at a cover up while trying to appease the American public.

The PBS Newshour Report this evening had the Attorney General from Connecticut on their GS Fraud segment who indicated that the possibility does exist that there could be criminal actions taken and that his office would be looking into the possibility of damages casued by this fraud.

As was brought out many times, Goldman Sachs allegedly not onlly deceived their customers but they took advantage of government pension plans such as for firefighters, police and teachers as well as other government employees.

This is - I hope - just the tip of the iceberg.  I would like to see JUSTICE served not only for the American people but for the nations and their people around the world that were stung by these giant insects.  I further hope that not onlly will there be financial reform but true, honest oversight of our financial system.  The argument for breaking these Too Big Too Fail guys up is even more justified.

I would also hope that the secret missions of Ben Bernanke and The Federal Reserve in cahoots with both Timothy Geitner and Henry Paulson.also come to light and are exposed.   Further explanation is needed to explain the quick two step shuffle of giving Bear Stearns to JPMorgan - I believe to be a co conspirator in the economic crisis -  as well as the shuffling off of Merrill Lynch to BofA and the sale of WAMU again to JP Morgan.  I question that these actions were taken to avoid exposure of the details now coming out of the Lehman case and now Goldman.

I believe this is a very large iceberg and will take several years to float to the surface but each step forward is a step forward for the American people.

GS very much lives by the philosophy in a statement made by Meyer Rothschild'
Let me control the money of a nation and I care not who makes its l
Hopefully the power of Goldman, JPMorgan and other cartel members will be short lived from this pint forward.

Just read this entire article and I fail to see what Goldman did wrong.

If they had done something to insure the Abacus fund would fail, that would be another story. It failed because of the housing crash. Goldman didn't know for sure housing would crash, as proven by the fact that they were more long than short in mortgage bonds, a fact that most ignore. If they knew housing would crash they would have been fully short. Ill-informed people need a scapegoat, and Goldman, with its high salaries is an easy one.

The technical issue of whether Paulson was an "outside advisor" is what this case is about, if you read the article carefully. Funny reading all the crazed responses that don't even focus on what this article says...lets just get out the burning torches.
