A History Lesson on Goldman Sachs – one of the main players in Cap and Trade Legislation

Posted on October 2, 2009. Filed under: General Info, Soapbox | Tags: , , , , |

The debate on cap and trade starts next week. Time to bone up. Earlier this week, I gave you the facts behind the fallacious science being used to co-opt our government and doom our family budgets: http://wp.me/pxG9Z-ak
Let me push the envelope further by rerunning some background data. Goldman Sachs has an untold number of “operatives” in our government, put there by both Presidents Bush and Obama, as well as their predecessors. Goldman Sachs and GE (owners of the NBC family of networks), along with Al Gore’s company will be the benefactors financially of the Carbon Credit market. The government will benefit also by a vast increase in taxes paid by businesses and in turn consumers. Here we will highlight the history behind the government connection with Goldman Sachs. It’s important you know these facts and use them to inform your representatives in the House and Senate that you know the real deal and you do not approve. I will leave this up all weekend, as the video takes 20 minutes to go through. As well, there is an accompanying article from Matt Taibbi, who is the interviewee in these videos. This is WELL worth your twenty minute investment.

“The Commodity Futures Modernization Act.”


Goldman Sachs wrote them…

Clinton teed them up and Bush & Co. knocked them down the fairway.

Now Goldman owns our president too.

The bankrupting of America (and the world) on the behalf of a handful of New York investment bankers.

Kleptocracy – government of the thieves, by the thieves, for the thieves.

THE GREAT AMERICAN BUBBLE MACHINE by Matt Taibbi for Rolling Stone

So- first they took your 401K (internet bubble), then they took your house (real estate bubble) and assaulted your 401K again, raised the interest rates on your charge cards to 20%+. For those of us still hanging on – here comes Cap and Trade. Another bill engineered by Goldman Sachs, with a little help from their friends. The article above will give you the details.

Matt Taibbi on how Goldman Sachs has engineered every major market manipulation since the Great Depression

I know your minds are on Health Care legislation now, but take the time to bone up on what’s really going on behind Cap and Trade. Once again, it’s not about what it’s supposed to be about. Just like with health care, it’s about control about you and your government by external forces.
Obama May Impose Cap and Trade Regardless of Senate Vote

By American Solutions | 10/02/09

President Obama’s energy “czar” Carol Browner hinted today that the EPA might implement a cap and trade plan for carbon dioxide emissions even if that type of plan fails in the Senate

. In other words, if our elected leaders recognize that enough Americans oppose a cap and trade system and the energy tax is defeated, the government is preparing to impose it on us anyway.

Browner said in an interview today, “We also have the reality of EPA, under current law, moving forward…to start the traditional regulatory clock,” another less-than-disguised attempt to threaten Congress into passing some form of carbon criminalization bill such as the Waxman-Markey bill or the Senate version of the energy tax.  This also comes in the wake of EPA’s decision to forego what it knows is best (legislation) by issuing rules for regulating carbon dioxide


Even more interesting is that the energy czar is actually encouraging well-connected groups and businesses to engage in lobbying.  Browner said the credible threat of EPA regulating carbon would “obviously encourage the business community to raise their voices in Congress” in support of the energy tax.

In other words, the government is moving full speed ahead with a plan, regardless of whether our own elected leaders support it. And in the process, they’re hoping that businesses will spend millions of dollars in lobbying to support a devastating measure like the Boxer-Kerry energy tax.
