A very special message from OccupyWallSt.Org: We have just received confirmation from highly-reputable sources that everyone´s favorite investment bank, Goldman Sachs, has entered into the race for the U.S. Presidency! We are proud to be the first site to break this story, and we hereby announce our support for this first-of-a-kind U.S. Presidential bid. We are passing along some useful campaign information to help our supporters get the word out. Goldman Sachs 2012!


Corporations are people and should be allowed to hold public office. Goldman Sachs has been functioning as the de facto Commander-in-Chief for years. HELP US MAKE IT OFFICIAL!


The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is a leading global investment banking, securities, and investment management firm. "We provide a wide range of financial services to a substantial and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments, and high-net-worth individuals." Shorthand? All the big players in international politics already know and rely upon us as a part of our network.

Goldman Sachs - "a full-service global investment banking and securities firm" - has proven business acumen, international relations expertise, and knowledge of security. We will leverage our network to further the goals of humanity, through the prospects offered by corporate globalization and totally deregulated markets. We have a proven track record of success. Our friends in Europe already function as the de facto governments, and just look at the wonders they´ve done for Spain, Greece, and Ireland!

Here are just a few of our key strengths that will make us the greatest President in U.S. History.


Goldman Sachs generated $4 BILLION in profit from the sub-prime mortgage collapse thanks to two enterprising bankers, visionaries who bet the market would collapse. Anonymous sources even credit them with transactions that led to the collapse. (Later they paid a $550 million dollar fine for alleged misdeeds leading to the collapse : net profit $4Billion - fine $550Million = pure profit $3.45BILLION.)

Talk about making it work! We know how to make money, and let's be honest, what is more American than money?


Goldman Sachs' current focus is "growth markets" which are "the world's most dynamic and fast-growing economies" and those offering "the potential for significant growth in the coming decades", such as India and Brazil.

Translation? Since people in America no longer have enough money to make us richer (because we've already taken it all), people in the global economy still have access to money that can make this country once again GREAT. After all, that's how we made money the first time. WE CAN EXPORT OUR DEBT: PAVING OUR STREETS IN GOLD.

For more on our cutting-edge approach on international relations, follow our new Twitter campaigns: #brownpeoplewillonceagainmakeusrich and #colonialism2012!


Managing wealth is a risky endeavor particularly when much of it is made off of weapons sales. The answer? We need more guns and bombs than they have. Security is of the highest import. Generating wealth is not easy, managing it - harder, protecting it - invaluable! It's lonely on top and everyone else (Prudential, JP MORGAN, Saudi-owned CITIBANK) wants to be there.

To protect our profits, security is a must. That´s why Goldman Sachs is the world's top ranking SECURITIES FIRM!

(re)ELECT Goldman SACHS: it's the only way to get our country out of debt and achieve the American Dream. Restore Opportunity! Restore Prosperity! Restore Security!

fact: GOLDMAN-SACHS DESTROYED AMERICA, YET OBAMA HIRED ABOUT DOZEN the facts: Goldman - Sachs, the company, was Obama's largest contributor in the 2008 election. Goldman the company gave Obama $1,000,000.00, as Election Contributions show. That does not count what the Goldman executives and traders gave Obama in 2008 and now in 2012 and to Romney as well. Matt Taibbi writer for "Rollingstone" Magazine and Nomi Prins author and ex-executive from Goldman and myself have documented these facts. These are the facts: Goldman- Sachs deliberately destroyed the US Economy> March of 2000....to bring Bush to Power.....the deliberate deregulation by Alan Greenspan allowed Goldman's, AIG and the rating companies the ability to defraud investors from the U.S. to Europe. Bush's S.E.C. chief deliberately failed to safe guard Our financial system, so that Goldman and the rest could continue their fraud from 2000 through to 2008, and it continues today. Where are the prosecutions!
Not only was is it clearly known Goldman played a huge roll in destroying the U.S. and Western World's Economies 2000-2008, the individuals who did this are known, Henry Paulson to Lloyd Blankfein. Yet Obama hired a dozen Goldman executives from the very beginning of his administration, in fact his own Chief of Staff now the Mayor of Chicago was a high paid consultant to Goldman-Sachs. So are we the American People getting a "CON JOB" and nothing else from Obama ....You Bet.... Not only did Goldman get away with the largest securities theft in American and Global history, not one executive or trader from Goldman has ever gone to prison for their crimes. Obama and his Treasury Secretary continue their enrichment of "bailed out" Wall Street Banks such as Goldman, and so does the Federal Reserve under the current Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke. Obama and Bernanke latest Ponzi Scheme: the Fed lends at no interest billions and billions dollars to these same banks that got bailed out, where by they purchase in return with these funds "free money" U.S. Gov. Debt Paper, with a payoff by the U.S. Gov. in real interest "Our Money", this further enriches the guys who destroyed Our Economy, Our Neighborhoods, Our Jobs, Our Businesses, Our Children's future, higher education for Our Children, the ability for us to find valued work, or for our children to find work after school. 10's of Millions of Americans are out of work, things are not getting better! FACT: It is past the time of believing in anything Obama says. Goldman-Sachs top executives must be Criminally Charged, Convicted and Imprisoned for at least 20 yrs for destroying Our Financial System, it is absolute financial treason. Stop the Obama BS, it is time to vote out all Democrats & Republicans for their failures, the biggest in US History, they absolutely failed to protect Our Financial System from criminals such as Goldman-Sachs.

OBAMA IS 100% A PHONY............dump all democrats!!!!! they have failed...........and continue to fail.................. We need an Independent Candidate for US President, Obama and the Democrats have failed even when they controlled the House the Senate and the Presidency...what do you think they'll do next time around? FAIL! BUT everyone must know the FACTS: Romney is Obama and Obama is Romney BOTH take their money from Wall Street, Wall Street Executives, Traders, and former Partners. As Our Country is getting ripped off CHINA is successful. Over the last 30 Years and counting, China has brought 700 million of it's citizens out of Poverty. Today they are beginning the construction of 10 NEW CITIES , each with a population of at least one million, using current technologies for infrastructure and advanced green technologies, the cities of the future, today. As the USA has faced economic Recessions in 1988,89,90,91 & part of 1992, March of 2000,01, & part of 2002, October 2008,09,10,11 & 12, China has NEVER faced a Recession in the last 30 years. Why is this? You hear from some Wall Street types ours is an economy that goes through cycles, when in reality what is really happening is Theft & Deliberate Destruction of Financial & Economic Systems by Goldman-Sachs creating Hyper Inflation in the Markets then Profiting from their Collapse. All of this is documented >completely. As stated by my first comment on this topic: Goldman Sucks, Matt Taibbi, Nomi Prins and myself researched and or lived by watching Goldman-Sachs destroy the TECH BOOM starting March 2000, lead by it's Board of Directors,which included the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, corporate executive & partners past and present. So the question is this: is Obama an Uncle Tom for Goldman-Sachs? These are the facts: Every Real Estate Boom starts to collapse during it's fourth year of Boom. This fact was researched completely. In 2006 California was already sinking, with hyper inflation in the real estate market in regards to high end homes; and over all the increase in the number of Sub-Prime Mortgages was a real fact in 2006. This was the exact same case in the Real Estate Collapse of Bush number 1, in 1988,89,90,91 & 92, now it was Bush number 2 and the same hyper inflation happening in California, both times Stockton, California lead the way in homeowners becoming Upside Down with regards to their Home Mortgages. Yet Goldman kept bundling mortgages and offing them around the world as AAA Securities, that is absolute Fraud. That deliberate Fraud lead the Western World to Collapse. Yet Obama hired the following Goldman Executives........... Obama’s once Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel – contract employee to Goldman-Sachs. Obama’s Under Secretary of State, Robert Hormats, Goldman-Sachs International,Vice Chairman. Obama’s COO of the SEC Enforcement, Adam Storch, Goldman-Sachs Vice President of Business Intelligence. Obama’s Chief of Staff for the Treasury, Mark Patterson, Goldman-Sachs Lobbyist. Obama’s Department Director of the NEC, Diana Farrell, Goldman-Sachs Financial Analyst. Obama’s Chairman of the FIAB, Stephen Friedman, Co-COO, Chairman of Goldman-Sachs. Obama’s Ambassador to Germany, Phillip Murphy, a Director at Goldman-Sachs. Obama’s Chairman of the CFTC, Gary Gensler, Co-Head of Finance at Goldman-Sachs. Obama’s White House Counsel, Sonal Shah, Vice President Environmental Policy at Goldman-Sachs. Obama’s White House Staff, Alexander Lasry, Government Affairs Analyst for Goldman-Sachs Now if you owned a business and had an accounting firm do your books only to find out they destroyed your business would you have hired the accounting firms employees? The answer would be absolutely not.
Yet Obama the Uncle Tom of Goldman-Sachs did just that. You might have lost your home, your job, your children's college education fund, but Goldman-Sachs received cake positions from their Uncle Tom, Obama.
Uncle Tom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncle_Tom The phrase "Uncle Tom" has also become an epithet for a person who is slavish and excessively subservient to perceived authority figures, particularly a black ... Obama spoke to Us about Change, Yet there was none, Wall Street Criminals still drive their million dollar cars, send their kids to high end prep schools and colleges, while we the 99% live in a greater degree of poverty. Not just less wages, less balanced meals, homes that need repairs, children going without, grandparents wiped out financially by the deliberate destruction of Our Financial Institutions and Economy. DUE the math..........see www.usdebtclock.com It is time to demand Obama and Congress step down from power. ALL OF THEM James P. Evanhoe

We so far have two of the same ROMNEY & OBAMA in the pocket of Wall Street, Romney with former executives of Lehman Bros and the Cult of Mormons. Romney not disclosing who his backers are....what the Russian Mob, or just Wall Street con men....one in the same. Romney makes Pelosi and George Bush look intelligent.

"STRONG CRIMINAL BACKGROUND - WHILE OTHERS FAIL WE GUARANTEE SUCCESS" That sounds like a bit more fitting. They are very successful at conning people aren't they?

Interesting idea to get some attention. Another american spring is needed to reinvigorate the public a little. The people at the top are beginning to loosen the purse strings a little and make the public believe an economic upturn is just around the corner. The 99.9% are being duped and most still do not realize what has happened to them over the last 10 to 30 years. They do not realize their democracy is changing into a government by plutocrats. Once they see that the votes for honest down to earth concerned people will follow and hopefully these honest people will come forward to run for office. I used to see hundreds of comments on a forum here last year, now this one only has 10. I admire what occupy has accomplished so far and also understand the need for a long time approach to problems that are so entrenched and accepted as just the way things are and can't be changed. Such as the money flow that concentrates at the top of a society like ours. You can't take the money away from them, the money has to become worthless. That's scary because any money we have for ourselves would become worthless too. What is a society to do? I don't think you can fix a society that has money as their God by occupying a building. However, I guess you have to start somewhere and I salute your efforts if you are trying to dethrone the present king of America "MONEY".

Goldman Sachs was a top contributor for Barack Obama back in 2008 but they're switching to Mitt Romney for 2012. It seems the bailouts and an administration filled with Goldman Sachs execs wasn't enough for them to continue flooding Barack with the most money.

And so then, who is legitimate to write a rock hard corporate code of ethics.

Until the court or congress comes to sense (taking bets yet on which arrives first), it's right that the GSs of Wall Street see some wide scale public inconvenience that will rule the way their profit is shared, accomplished in far simpler terms than the travesty of words that is what goes by the names of banking regulation today.

DC is owned and not by "We The People".

Everyone can clearly see that DC is owned.

Everyone should be able to see exactly how this was accomplished "legally".

Anyone who tries to tell anyone DC isn't owned and is actually viable to continue as the government for the people of the United States is either plain stupid or a plain federalist shill.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 12 years ago

Ultimatums and fatalism. Now gumby, you do remember the name of this forum? The forum who's supporters you challenge and insult?

There's a very good reason for it's name.


Stop fighting us, and join us.........:)

You are a federalist shill supporting bigger and more powerful government.

I prefer that, to you turning us into Somalia..

Your own (R)epelican'ts are the ones who gave us HUGE inefficient government.

I don't care about the size. I just want it to be effective. You don't.

[-] -2 points by GumbyDamnit (36) 12 years ago

If you truly did, you'd be in favor of deconstruction and reconstruction.

Nope, you want to tweak a beyond corrupt and owned system so that it tinkles a bit more on the lower end, nothing else.

I wish I found your insistence on having to label and categorize everyone amusing, it only shows how "boxed in" your limited thinking abilities are.

I do not support the bi-party system or the owned DC government which still has your kind fooled into believing it still is a functioning republic.

You support and believe in it, not me.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 12 years ago

As is usual for a corrupted claymation figure, you went off on a rant that had nothing to do with what I said.

Please try and pay better attention.

(R)epelican'ts have given us the HUGE inefficient government you like to deride.

Admit that, so we can move forward, or get the hell out of they way.


[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 12 years ago

Damn it gumby.

You make less sense with every fact devoid post.

With every denial of the fact that it's the (R)epelican'ts that have burdened us with HUGE government.

[-] -1 points by GumbyDamnit (36) 12 years ago

facts are wasted on you so nobody bothers telling you that your worshipful Demoncraps have been 100% complicit and condoning....... you can't hardly not realize that they've had control of the Whitehorse and congress....... business as usual except according to you, the R's made them do all the evil they've done.

You're really a 7 year old post whore, right?

You are a strange person, or claymation figure.

You're making even less sense.

How did Bush NOT make the largest most invasive government agency in history?

Look retard, I don't give a damn how he did or did not make whatever with the same DC clan including your worshipful D's. The Demoncraps haven't fixed jack shit and they aren't going to either. They have carried out more of the same agenda.

You're either completely retarded or an absolute fraud.
