Goldman Sachs CEO and Clinton Donor Warns That Sanders Creating A “Dangerous Moment”

BernieSandersLloyd_Blankfein_CEO_Goldman_SachsWe recently talked about how a poll showing that 17 percent of the federal government workforce would resign if Donald Trump were elected. It seemed to me a perfect pitch for Trump to make to conservatives that he has already delivered on shrinking the size of government. Now Bernie Sanders may have been given the greatest possible gift from a past donor for the Clintons. The CEO of Goldman Sachs, Lloyd Blankfein, has given an interview and warns that Sanders is “dangerous.” If that is not the next political ad from the Sanders campaign, they are asleep at the switch.

Blankfein stated “To personalize it, it has potential to be a dangerous moment. Not just for Wall Street … but for anybody who is a little bit out of line.” In what could be a reference to Hillary Clinton, Blankfein said “It’s a liability to say, ‘ I’m willing to compromise’ It’s just incredible. It’s a moment in history. Eventually people, the electorate, will notice nothing is getting done.”

Blankfein was one of Clinton’s supporters in 2008 and has been often associated in the media with both Bill and Hillary Clinton. Since January 2014 alone, the Clintons made 25 million from speeches. Their hotel from lucrative speech deals since leaving the White House is an estimated $125 million.  Clinton was heavily criticized for her huge speaking fees from Wall Street and banks.

Notably, Bill Clinton shocked many in an account of a statement he made to former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner that dismissed liberals who were demanding punishment for Wall Street and bank executives. Clinton said “You could take Lloyd Blankfein into a dark alley. And slit his throat, and it would satisfy them for about two days. Then the blood lust would rise again.”

That “blood lust” is likely to rise in anyone hearing that Blankfein wants to warn everyone about the dangers of electing Bernie Sanders.

  1. Natural born, does that mean without anesthetic, squatting over a piece of ground, or maybe a more modern version of lying in a bed, or on a blanket? Surely birth in a hospital can’t be considered natural as there weren’t very many when our founding fathers, who btw, seemed to have a lot more brains than 99 % of those that would be king lately, wrote the Constitution. Oh, wait, I’ve got it! Only American Indians are the natural citizens of America, so that means that all our presidents have been illegal.

    Birther, crawl back in the racist hole you came out of. If Hawaii isn’t in the states, then what nation is it a member of? Birthers need to take off the tin foil hats they are wearing. They can’t handle the truth, or won’t accept it. This thread has nothing to do with right wingnut birther bull-crap lies. Why is it that all of those names are not white American sounding? And don’t get me wrong, I’ve no love for any of them, for much different reasons, but especially Cruz and Rubio who are very dangerous.

  2. sgtsabai,

    Can you say “natural born citizen?” The Constitution does.

    Article 2, Section 1

    No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    Ya know what else says “natural born citizen?” The Jay/Washington letter of 1787 where the requirement was raised from that of senator and congressman, “citizen” to “natural born citizen” to place a “strong check” against foreign allegiances by the commander-in-chief.

    Ya know what else says “natural born citizen?” The legal text and reference of the era, the Law of Nations which defines “natural born citizen” as “…born in the country of parents who are citizens.”

    Ya know what establishes the Law of Nations among the American Founders? The Franklin/Dumas letter of 1775, which said that legal text and reference was “…continually in the hands of the members of our Congress,…”

    “You can’t handle the truth,” Jack Nicholson.

    If you could, you would have googled this stuff already. You don’t want the truth.

    The truth is that Cruz, Rubio and Obama are NOT eligible for the office of the president.

  3. George Washington –

    “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence—it is a force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”

  4. Oh jeez, now the birthers have raised their ugly head. Give it a break, Obama was born in Hawaii, which last time I checked was a state and his mother was certainly a citizen. Some people just don’t/won’t look at the truth.

  5. John ” This is irrefutable evidence that “natural born citizen” means a candidate for the highest office must have TWO CITIZEN-PARENTS as directed by Jay to Washington. ”

    Two citizens AT BIRTH you mean? Cruz didn’t move to the United States till he was 4 years old and his father didn’t become a citizen till 2005. Perhaps his ‘natural born citizen’ status could be prorated or made proactive? Of course he’s not eligible but people will argue about this and that wording, legal precedent, standing, suppressed records,computer files proffered as copies of a real birth certificate with nothing changed I fear. I think the American people have been lied to, used and abused for so long that we’ve become numb to it.

    We haven’t had a lawful, legitimate, honest election in this country for years and years and years. Obama was selected, not elected and NATURALLY rampant election fraud isn’t and WON’T be covered by the same media that’s owned by the people doing the buying. .

    And I’m not just talking about millionaires and billionaires who buy our collective compliance, but TRILLIONAIRES. The people who don’t even make the ‘world’s richest people’ lists. How can we defeat this monster?

  6. Hildegard,

    I have a letter for you. It’s from John Jay. Take your time and grasp the message below:



    Constitutional requirement for president: Natural Born Citizen

    Rubio, Cruz and Obama are not eligible and not “natural born citizens” required for president by the Constitution. “…born in the country of parents who are citizens” as defined by the Law of Nations. Jay and Washington read the Law of Nations which was the legal text and reference of the era as demonstrated in the Franklin to Dumas letter of 1775, which said the Law of Nations was “…continually in the hands of the members of our Congress,…” Jay and Washington RAISED the requirement from “citizen” to “natural born citizen” to place a “strong check” against foreign allegiances by the commander-in-chief.

    The Founders were brilliant men who knew what they were doing and did it precisely and deliberately. This Jay/Washington letter provides the rationale for use of the definition in the Law of Nations. This is irrefutable evidence that “natural born citizen” means a candidate for the highest office must have TWO CITIZEN-PARENTS as directed by Jay to Washington.

    All the Founders and European practitioners of law learned law from sources such as the Law of Nations.


    From John Jay

    New York 25 July 1787

    Dear Sir

    I was this morning honored with your Excellency’s Favor of the 22d Inst: & immediately delivered the Letter it enclosed to Commodore Jones, who being detained by Business, did not go in the french Packet, which sailed Yesterday.

    Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise & seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government, and to declare expressly that the Command in chief of the american army shall not be given to, nor devolved on, any but a natural born Citizen.

    Mrs Jay is obliged by your attention, and assures You of her perfect Esteem & Regard—with similar Sentiments the most cordial and sincere I remain Dear Sir Your faithful Friend & Servt

    John Jay

  7. When it comes to “known baggage”, the Clintons are in a “class” of their own.
    With the possible exception of Trump, I think it’s a mistake to “lump together” all candidates with
    “World Class Gangster” label.

  8. It will be Hillary vs Cruz or Rubio end of story. Rubio is fast moving up the latter since Microsoft’s app was used to count caucus votes and guess what? Microsoft/Bill Gates is Rubio’s 2nd biggest donor after Goldman Sachs! Move along, nothing to see here folks!

    Cruz, Rubio, and Clinton are all BOUGHT and the one thing we will NOT have is a candidate who can’t be bought. Presidents are no longer elected, but selected. Don’t be fooled! Supposedly JFK was selected but grew a pair and turned on his handlers; hence his early demise. We are living in the neo Roman Empire and our next emperor isn’t going to be Claudius, who by the way never wanted the job but wanted more than anything to restore the Republic.

    Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble here but that IS what we’re up against – world class gangsters.

  9. The article was correct, I got a fund raiser ad from the Bernie campaign last night (Thailand time) in my inbox. Go Bernie!

    1. There was a great piece in THE ONION a day or two ago about “Wall Street” flooding the Sanders campaign with huge donations, in a desperate effort to undermine his credibility.

  10. I am for Bernie. The debate tonight is good. Both would be against Wall Street. Bernie is qualified to be President and is not too old. Overlook his New York accent and just consider his words. To my mind the Repub side is sick and ugly. Or vice versa.

  11. Goldman sacks paid Hillary $650,000.00 for speaking and Bernie has been the senate 20 years and has helped write 2 bills, how long did they take 2 weeks each. What a couple of bums

  12. Who’s wealth will Sanders and Clinton redistribute when all the heroes who create wealth are gone?

    When there are only parasites left in the country, from where will they derive “free stuff?”

    Does America kill the goose that laid the golden egg?

    When jealousy becomes a virtue, will America be completely lost in communism?

    The innovation of freedom and free enterprise has created multiple entirely new industries out of whole cloth over the past two centuries.

    Communism only creates parasites.

  13. I wonder how much Professor Turley makes for his talks at the Koch brothers club – the Cato Institute.
