“I know the guys at Goldman Sachs. They have total, total control over him (Ted Cruz). Just like they have total control over Hillary Clinton.”
Times have changed and there are now suggestions to rename the “East Wing” to “Hedge Fund Headquarters.”
Or more accurately – “GS Village in the Capitol.” This is the place where old bean counters and masters of economic disaster gather to decide how much financial misery the “little people” will endure without revolting.
A good and quick example is Anthony Scaramucci, He worked at Goldman Sachs‘s Investment Banking, Equities, and Private Wealth Management divisions from 1989 to 1996. Flamboyant, like his fictional counterpart, he lasted ten days before Trump replaced him with a retired general. The president’s picks for his cabinet tend to be either Wall Street bankers or multi-star generals. Guns and promises of rose gardens?
J Street is an alt-left group that wants Israel to return to the 1948 borders, leaving the country nine miles wide at its narrowest. It approves of removing all Jews from the West Bank, just as all Jews were removed from Gaza, and ignores the fact that there are some two million Arab full citizens in Israel.
And J Street believes that the United States should intervene to force this solution on the government of Israel.
This is a banner day for the soon-to-be Democrat candidate for USA President, as the FBI Director described use of a private server in her basement as only “extremely careless,” despite 2,000 classified emails stored at home without government servers’ anti-hacking protection. His recommendation was to do nothing, even though knowingly exposing national secrets to foreign governments is a criminal act.
The candidate’s husband met with the Director’s boss, the Attorney General, a few days ago in a plane after emptying it of reporters and the Secret Service. Reports from the two politicians described it as G & G – meaning golf and grandchildren. Other reporters said the confab was accidental, but those pundits probably also believe in the bicuspid bully.
The recent forgiveness of her serious crime was not limited to electronic mail. A few days ago, the press agreed that “nothing new” was contained in the Select Committee on Benghazi proposed report that damned the state department, which the candidate once headed.
The Obama administration has gone to a New York court to insure the finances of the Palestinian Authority stay rock solid, despite conviction by an American court in connection with the murder of 33 Jews and injuries to 450 others.
Obama’s justice department asked a United States judge yesterday (Aug. 10) to “carefully consider” the size of the bond he sets for the Palestinian Authority while it appeals an award for damages in deaths and injuries of Americans in six terror attacks in Israel.
The payment suggested by the plaintiffs was $30 million a month – an amount insignificant in the Arab world economies. For example, the payment would represent one six-millionth of the annual GDP of Qatar, the great supporter of Hamas and other Palestinian causes. Despite the miniscule amount, the Obama team maintains the economic impact would devastate the “Authority” and cause its downfall.
The following cartoons from the Arab press are highly critical of Israel, Kerry, Obama and the framework of the Iran deal or the descriptions leaked of the plan. In countries where freedom of the press barely exists, this kind of opinion is usually only allowed when approved by their government.
