Take a close look at the picture of Hillary driving the tank. Can you pick four Goldman Sachs executives who are giving Hillary marching orders? No, it is not the two Vietcong soldiers behind her; they were victims of an unjust war perpetrated by U.S. lies. Disgustingly similar to the Iraq War that Hillary firmly voted for.
Going left to right, we have former Goldman Sachs CEO Jon Corzine, who is raising money for Hillary despite being sued by the federal government for defrauding investors. Next is Former Goldman Sachs executive Robert Rubin, who served as Bill Clinton's Treasury Secretary. Then Former Goldman Sachs executive Robert Harrison, who currently serves as CEO of the Clinton Global Initiative (you know, that multi-billion cash cow of the Clintons'). Last and not least is current Goldman Sachs chairman and CEO Lloyd Blankfein, a personal friend of the Clintons and a prominent Hillary backer who is also invested in Hillary's son-in-law and his poorly-performing hedge fund, Eaglevale Partners.
In 1972, during the Vietnam War, when Jane Fonda was 34, she visited Hanoi, and protested the war, and in effect, defended the Vietcong. In a famous photo, she posed with Vietcong soldiers and weaponry. She was considered a traitor and branded as Hanoi Jane by U.S. Veteran groups. Forty-three years later, she apologized and said, 'I made a huge, huge mistake that will haunt me to my grave.'
What Hillary is doing to our country is equally traitorous; in fact, much more. She is feeding from the trough of Goldman Sachs, the institution that has gravely harmed the United States. Fonda was relatively young and did not know better; Hillary is old, and knows better. She is glib, arrogant, and will never apologize. When she is finished, our country will look like Vietnam. That is the intention of the billionaires who run the country. Our jobs are already being shipped there. Our poor are getting poorer. Hillary is firmly entrenched with the establishment--the one-percenters. In her betrayal of the common folk, and her contribution to the economic free fall of veterans, Hillary is the Jane Fonda of Wall Street. Except she is a traitor to the American people, not Wall Street.
If Nevada is any example, however, blacks may elect her, which would be the ultimate irony. Martin Luther King had a dream; and it was not to re-enslave the American people, nor feed at the trough of the institution that bankrupted America.
Hillary and her Goldman Sachs buddies, in the modern era, contributed more to the enslavement of the American people than anybody, one simple example being the crushing college-debt enslavement of America's children and young adults, the spoils going to her Goldman Sachs friends. Hillary's seamless obfuscations, purely for political gain, express a cynical and calculated abandonment of youth and idealism. That is her ticket. If you want to vote for more enslavement by the establishment, then vote for Hillary. Wall Street will reward her even more. Goldman Sachs has padded her with $7.5 million, so far. There will be lots more. You can bank on it.
Hillary's betrayal of blacks and the poor is not a high-tech lynching; it is Hillary's high-tech pension. Her obscene, arrogant, and cloying coupling with and shrill defense of Goldman Sachs is a de facto, fait accompli that will keep everybody in virtual chains. You cannot see the wrist cuffs; but you are wearing them.
Compared to Detective Mark Furman's denial of using racial epithets, Hillary's denial of her quid-pro-quo Goldman Sachs deals makes Furman look like a choirboy in comparison.
So as far as the black-voting bloc to reelect Hillary, I say, ok, brothers and sisters, close your eyes and vote for Hillary; she is a wolf in sheep's clothing, except the pigs are not threatened; they are wagging their wiggly tails at Goldman Sachs, and they are feeding at the same trough with Hillary. Chelsea, of course, has chosen the same path, and is open to fair criticism since she has stepped into the fray. After all, she is fully invested in Goldman Sachs. Her husband, Marc Mezvinski, worked at Goldman Sachs and now runs a hedge fund. It is in their blood. The fund is not doing well (translation: losses). I wonder who will get screwed when it crashes? Undoubtedly not the CEOs. There is a glimmering insouciance in Marc's eyes that remind me of Pharma 'Bad Boy' Martin Shkreli. Perhaps it is just me. I do not hang with the country-club crowd. I assume the photo below could be a stockholder meeting. In spite of Hillary's golden "wool" suit, nobody looks happy.
Chelsea's father-in-law, however, spent five years in prison for scamming $10 million out of family and friends in a Ponzi scheme. Hopefully, the fruit does not fall too close to the tree. The 2008 crash of Wall Street, courtesy of Goldman Sachs, was basically a Ponzi scheme. Anybody see a pattern here? For the Clintons, money is intoxicating. It is Hillary's cocaine. Power is her aphrodisiac.
If GW Bush had the guts to speak, he would say, "fool me once... can't get fooled again." But he knows better; he is making tens of millions giving banks speeches, too. I imagine he makes a slurping sound when he feeds at the trough.
If Hillary becomes CEO of America, she will take marching orders from Goldman Sachs, although her buddies will likely re-title themselves as think-tankers, instead of bankers. Frankly, Hillary's Bankers should be called Banksters to accurately describe their gangster soul.
But Hillary has no shame. By embracing these criminals and ignoring the damage that Goldman Sachs has inflicted on our country, Hanoi Hillary is a worse traitor than Hanoi Jane.
Compare the cost of the Vietnamese War verses the Wall Street crash.
The Defense Department reported that the overall cost of the Vietnam war was $173 billion (equivalent to $770 billion in 2003 dollars). Veteran's benefits and interest would add another $250 billion ($1 trillion in 2003 dollars).
The price tag for the Wall Street bailout is often put at $700 billion--the size of the Troubled Assets Relief Program. But TARP is just the tip of the iceberg of money paid out or set aside by the Treasury Department and Federal Reserve. In her book, It takes a Pillage: Behind the Bonuses, Bailouts, and Backroom Deals from Washington to Wall Street, Nomi Prins uncovers the hush-hush programs and crunches the hidden numbers to calculate the shocking actual size of the bailout: $14.4 trillion and counting.
In a nutshell, the crash largely occurred because Bill Clinton, to bankers' delight, (with Hillary's blessing) deregulated our economy.
Jane Fonda was protesting and trying to stop the war; Hanoi Hillary is pro-war; she fully supported the Iraq War, and she is currently a paid and parcel, hack of the illuminati that brought America to its knees, and has insured that America's children will be poorer than their parents, and most of us will remain pawns to the predatory corporate powers. Her family has garnered $153 million just from speeches. There is no stop to her greed.
A vote for Hillary is a capitulation to corporations.
And yes, Hanoi Hillary has a traitorous heart.
