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

Occupy Wall Street - Day 9 - Update

A picture is worth a thousand words.  ABC at least did some coverage.  WHERE is the rest of the media?  CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX, NYT and all the rest.  When it comes to the rights of the people and the people fighting for what is right there is a surpression of the news. 

Most of the public here in this country I believe are not even aware of this event.  An event by the people for the people against those that would have most of us servants of the elite on Wall Street and beyond.

In the end, this country stands on the liberty of its people. Unless we lay down and allow these atrocities and crimes aided and abetted by our very own elected officials, We The People will prevail.  After all, this is our country.  We own it!  In President Obama's own words, We "hired our politicians to "work for us".  Let us not let them forget WHO it is they work for. 

I personally applaud those men and women in New York City who are brave enough to lead the fight for all of us.  Let us all support them. 

While the real criminals occupy the buildings of Wall Street, We The People are the ones treated as criminals.

‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protests Turn Violent; Video Shows Police Macing Women

ABC News’ Olivia Katrandjian reports:

Video posted by the group Occupy Wall St from the eighth day of protests against corporations show police using Tasers and mace to control the crowd, which the group says has only made it more committed to keep up the demonstrations in lower Manhattan for the long haul.

A  New York Police Department spokeswoman today confirmed the group’s claim that approximately 80 people were arrested Saturday, mainly for disorderly conduct and obstructing vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
“One person was arrested for assaulting a police officer,” she said.

She added that no arrests have been made today.

The spokeswoman could not confirm whether police officers are using mace, Tasers or netting against protesters.

Among the video clips on the Occupy Wall Street website is one that shows a police officer macing a group of young women penned in by orange netting.

Another video has circulated of a police officer throwing a protester to the ground, though it is not clear why. The video shows the man standing in what seems to be a non-threatening manner before the incident.
Another video shows police officers pushing male and female protesters off the street, and using a large orange net to move the crowd.

Last night, a group of protesters marched from Zuccotti Park to One Police Plaza and then to the 5th Precinct in Chinatown, in search of their friends who had been arrested earlier on Saturday.
“You can still leave without being arrested. Leave this corner,” police told demonstrators. But several were arrested.

Cristina Gonzalez, 25, was among those arrested last night. She spoke to ABC station WABC-TV when she called her sister from the back of a police van.

“We haven’t been charged, we don’t know what happened,” Gonzalez said. “We are at One Police Plaza, there’s 16 of us in the back of a van and we’re sweating. And there’s a man back here in who needs medical attention. He’s bleeding from his head and his handcuffs are too tight.”

The group claimed on its website that several arrested protestors were locked inside a police van Saturday morning, one with a “possibly life-threatening” concussion.

The website reported at least one protestor was arrested for taking photographs. An NYPD spokesman told ABC News Saturday that police were not targeting those with cameras.
The protests began on Sept. 17, when hundreds of protestors gathered at Bowling Green Park in Manhattan, home of the iconic charging bull in New York’s Financial District, as they prepared to “take the bull by the horns,” as a flyer advertising the event said.

“The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%,” said a statement on the website Occupy Wall Street.

According to statements on the website, the movement, an offshoot of online magazine AdBusters, is angered by what it calls the principle of “profit over and above all else,” which it says has dominated not only America’s economic policies, but also the way in which Americans view culture and humanity.
Posts on the website compare the group’s efforts to those used in pro-democracy movements across the Middle East, dubbed the Arab Spring.

“On the 17th of September, we want to see 20,000 people to flood into lower Manhattan, set up beds, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months,” one statement says. “Like our brothers and sisters in Egypt, Greece, Spain, and Iceland, we plan to use the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic of mass occupation to restore democracy in America. We also encourage the use of nonviolence to achieve our ends and maximize the safety of all participants.”

As has become the norm of such protests, this movement has been fueled by social media fire, with supporters taking to Twitter under the hash tag #occupywallstreet. The major hacking group Anonymous has also thrown in its support, live streaming the day’s events.

Just to be clear, it was the police who turned violent. Protesters were dancing, singing, chanting. No reports of violence from any source that I have. I know many of those people. I would be there if I were still living in NYC. I watched quite a bit of the live feed (up until the police confiscated the video and computer equipment, arrested the media team). I saw nothing even approaching violence from the protesters..

Occupy Wall Street Protesters Kettled and Pepper-Sprayed by NYPD [Video]

Again, it seems the only way Occupy Wall Street protesters make national news is if the NYPD violates their civil liberties, arresting them for, as the First Amendment guarantees, “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Yesterday, the Occupy Wall Street protesters marched from Liberty Park up to Union Square, where 80 individuals were ultimately arrested for what the NYPD claims was “blocking of traffic.”
A group of female protesters were “kettled” (that is, corralled like cattle), a tactic used to contain and control protesters, then pepper-sprayed for good measure.
Never mind the fact that these protesters were exercising their First Amendment rights, which guarantees ”the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”; the message here from the government seems to be that they needed a nice authoritarian greeting.
And, of course, this is really the only way the protesters make the national news cycle, owned and operated by corporate media, as we noted in the article “Occupy Wall Street Protest Being Systematically Ignored by Mainstream Media.”
This sort of First Amendment violation should be a cause for concern for every American, whatever the political persuasion. This is a country where gamblers can now pillage the wealth from the lower classes and dodge prison sentences, while those who see a wrong and try to stop it are corralled, pepper-sprayed and hauled off to jail for attempting to petition their government—their government—for a redress of grievances.
Why don’t some of these blue-collar policemen do something for their own people and haul some Wall Street bankers and hedge fund managers off to jail for a change?
Watch the video of the NYPD’s use of kettling and pepper spray below—it needs no elaboration.
One final thought: Not one of those police officers step up to the protesters to help wash the pepper spray from their eyes and see if they are alright.
To protect and serve, indeed.

James Turk: “We are Looking at Another Lehman”

So you are getting these markets completely spinning out of control,
waiting for some kind of resolution. The fact that they (central
planners) are trying to keep this broken system going is what’s creating
all of this volatility in the market place. It feels a lot like 2008,
in the days before the Lehman (collapse) and I think we are probably
going to see another Lehman here, Eric.”

I have great admiration for the people who are protesting against Wall Street Banks.  The protesters have the right people in their sights. When there are more cops than needed, violence seems to be the result.  The brutality of cops seems to be fueled by non-violent protest (as happened at the protests against the G20 meeting in Toronto).

The problem that the financial meltdown has presented is that no one has had to answer for all the fraud committed by the banks.  Once the fraud is acknowledged and the CEOs are relieved of their positions and prosecuted, the unrest will no longer be necessary.

When Bloomberg's pigs maced those peaceful protesters, I completely backed the Occupy Wall Street crowd.

International Tensions Soar: Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan, Accuses
Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney of "Juvenile Delinquency"

Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase launched a tirade at Mark Carney, Bank

It’s Much Worse than 2008

This is not about you and me or the
economy. This is about power, and the folks that have it want to keep
it. They will not keep the power if the global economy folds and gets
sucked into a black hole. For those in power, there is only one answer
to the enormous debt suffocating the world economy, and that is to pay
some of it off with freshly minted fiat currency. Simply put, central
banks will print to retain power. Hold on to your insurance because the
financial calamity we face is much worse than 2008!’s-much-worse-than-2008/
