Goldman Sachs accidentally releases damning documents

It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes God smiles on us. Last week, he smiled on investigative reporters everywhere, when the lawyers for Goldman, Sachs slipped on one whopper of a legal banana peel, inadvertently delivering some of the bank’s darker secrets into the hands of the public.

Last week, in response to an Overstock.com motion to unseal certain documents, the banks’ lawyers, apparently accidentally, filed an unredacted version of Overstock’s motion as an exhibit in their declaration of opposition to that motion. In doing so, they inadvertently entered into the public record a sort of greatest-hits selection of the very material they’ve been fighting for years to keep sealed.

Anyway, this galactic screwup by usually-slick banker lawyers gives us a rare peek into the internal mindset of these companies, and their attitude toward regulations, the markets, even their own clients. The fact that they wanted to keep all of this information sealed is not surprising, since it’s incredibly embarrassing stuff, if you understand the context.

Somehow I doubt it was an accident. Maybe like a stealth breach of trust...?

Yes, indeed. Where word & deed align, banks are embarrassed badly. This is more damning investigative reporting from Matt Taibbi, the author of the Goldman Sachs Rolling Stone exposé "Goldman Sachs, an Octopus Squid Wrapped Around the Face of Humanity."

Beyond Reasonable Doubt


Distinguishable Dirty Twisted Pilfering Tentacles of Legerdemain and Black Soul Footprints Ink Stains Their Mark:

“Every human being carries with him from his cradle to his grave certain physical marks which do not change their character, and by which he can always be identified - and that without shade of doubt or question. These marks are his signature, his physiological autograph, so to speak, and this autograph can not be counterfeited, nor can he disguise it or hide it away, nor can it become illegible by the wear and mutations of time. This signature is not his face - age can change that beyond recognition; it is not his hair, for that can fall out; it is not his height, for duplicates of that exist; it is not his form, for duplicates of that exist also, whereas this signature is this man's very own - there is no duplicate of it among the swarming populations of the globe. This autograph consists of the delicate lines or corrugations with which Nature marks the insides of the hands and the soles of the feet.”

-Samuel Clemens, writing as Mark Twain, in The Tragedy of Pudd’nhead Wilson, 1894


Our government is filled

with these Goldman Sachs people, and others just like them.
And the rest of the lower level people are controlled by them, and probably aren't any better themselves anyway.

And these are the people behind Mitt Romney, and this is why everything we are seeing from the GOP and RNC is criminal.

The whole US gov't has been converted into a giant criminal enterprise.

I suspect that there will be waiting lines for the gallows when all is said and done.

Smooth Criminals

Matt Taibbi and Overstock President,Patrick Byrne have helped lead the small posse to apprehend.

The Goldman Gang, and the racketeering behind these stories is more integral to the revolution's opposition than a mere funding source for establishment politicians.


This story is not a sidebar.

The criminals will not be apprehended until more than just the posse apprehends.

We need to attack the core

It's the Rothschild that must be attacked, they still are behind the curtain, making them more aware to people is something I tirelessly talk about to everyone when i have time. Family and friends are waking up but these pests are truly the scum on the earth. Anyone seen their net worth, wtf is bill gates?, these guys are in the hundreds of trillions

No wonder andrew jackson and lincoln were fighting them, they are some fucking evil on this planet. if they were killed or died of sickness, all that wealth, which belongs to the people of the earth would be distributed, it's a possibility, I mean just awhile ago no one really knew where RP would be, and look now, he's going to win this nomination

Makes me proud...

that Overstock CEO is a Ron Paul supporter! He need RP to help bring down the mob that is Goldman Sacs (page 24 & 25 testimony referring to Goldman Sacs as the "mob". Good read, I recommend it!). This entire document is a treasure! We always knew they were crooks, now we can read it in their own words. Any wonder they want all this evidence sealed from the public!! It could embarrass them. Poor babies...rotten thieves! Way to go Rollingstone.

"If you want to know who is going to change this country, go home and look in the mirror."

Long story short, they are

Long story short, they are selling stuff they dont have, otherwise known as fraud. There can be no more clear indicator of the wrongness of all of this. This is just plain sad...

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Wasnt it the sacs clown

that proclaimed he was doing God's work so proudly. Nice to see the peacock lose a few feathers.



this will be our Million dollar guy? a man can hope. either way, i think i'll do some shopping there from now on.

Anything in there on the GOP or Robme?

Is the leak just a bunch of industry news, or is there something specific we can use, like how they are deciding how much to give to Robme versus Obomba?



Overstock.com!!! Overstock.com!!! Overstock.com!!!

The owner is a big Ron Paul fan!!!!!! :D

I'm going shopping right now

on overstock.

Sleep, those little slices of death; Oh how I loathe them.

A Lawyer with a

conscience thats an oxymoron.

I hope something big happens

I hope something big happens because of this. The CEO of Overstock has endorsed Ron, and it seems he is really fighting these banks. I wish him so much more luck and prosperity.
