Dave Hodges on the 'Goldman Sachs Goodfellas'

“The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” -David Rockefeller, Memoirs

And with the quote above, political commentator, radio talk-show host and confirmed conspiracy theorist Dave Hodges begins his story The Goldman Sachs Goodfellas on the NewsWithViews.com website.

Rockefeller's Memoirs quote likely sums up the deeply held views of many of the so-called 1% of Americans who own something like 90% of its wealth. But among that 1% there is a sector of Goldman Sachs execs, many of which have taken up the "sacrifice" of going into public service. Nevertheless, the firm is probably among the most reviled Wall Street companies, rightly or not -- the poster child for what is wrong with America's finances today. Probably the worst "crime" of which they have been accused: capitalizing on the mortgage-backed securities that were a primary driver of the 2008 crash, from which we have still not recovered. GS supposedly sold these toxic products, then made another fortune betting against them.

To me, this is what big business does -- has been doing since the age of the robber barons, if not since the first caveman sold a sharpened stone to another caveman for a handful of berries or a chunk of meat to roast over an open flame.

Yet, Hodges, in his article, takes his argument to such an extreme extent, that I have a very difficult time swallowing it. This seems to be his "style," going all out on any topic. Another recent article of his is titled THE 911 COVER-UP: SAME SONG, DIFFERENT VERSE. But, having come across it, I thought it was thought-provoking enough to put it here for you to read and make up your own minds. So without further ado, begin your journey into the ultra-extremism of Dave Hodges, who I have never heard of before, I'd like to add. (Yep, I only found this because my auto-search service found the word "Goodfella" in it!)

"It is no secret that Goldman Sachs runs Wall Street," Hodges writes. "Even Ray Charles could see that Goldman Sachs runs our government as evidenced by the former Goldman Sachs gangsters who have run our economy into the ground (e.g., Clinton’s Secretary of Treasury/Goldman Sachs' Rubin, Bush’s Secretary of Treasury Goldman Sachs’ “too big to fail” Paulson, Goldman Sachs and “Tiny Tim” Geithner presently serves as Obama’s Secretary of Treasury, etc.).

"Goldman Sachs dominates the Federal Reserve. Goldman Sachs dominates the World Bank.Goldman Sachs dominates the IMF. Goldman Sachs dominates the New York Stock Exchange. And now Goldman Sachs is running the European financial system into the ground as another Goldman Sachs boy, 'Super' Mario Monti, who has taken over Italy to finish off what is left of the Italian financial system. Monti is also the head of the European Trilateral Commission as well as a Bilderberger. And yet another Goldman Sachs boy is finishing off the job in Greece.

"Today’s events parallel the imperialists of the early 20th century, which resulted in World War I. Wall Street led the depression of the 1930s, which led to the rise of political extremism and ultimately to World War II.

"Today, Goldman Sachs and their fellow Wall Street cronies are currently running, or dare I say ruining the global economy -- and the consequences are going to result in the culmination of World War III from which these same gangster bankster’s will profit from the buildup, the death and destruction of hundreds of millions, if not billions, of innocent people, as well as the lucrative clean up which follows every war. However, the ultimate prize for the coming war will be the ruination of the planet in order to reconstruct civilization in a true fascist model that Hitler and Mussolini could only dream about.

"...  It will be your children and my children who will be sacrificed in the name of furthering the bottom line of the Goldman Sachs Mafia and the rest of the Wall Street gangsters. Meanwhile, the Goldman Sachs children will be safely tucked away attending private schools on your nickel... "
