Gerald Celente fans won’t want to miss Celente’s first interview after getting word that the next head of the Bank of England could be yet another Goldman Sachs boy.
In the spirit of Celente’s famous saying, “You can’t make this stuff up,” Bloomberg News released a trial-balloon article to assess public opinion of UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s potential choice of another former-Goldman Sachs boy, Mark Carney, to become the next governor of the Bank of England to replace Mervin King at the end of King’s term set to expire in 11 months.
“London is losing so much trust as the global financial center that Prime Minister David Cameron may need to consider an unprecedented choice for Bank of England governor: Mark Carney, the Canadian who polices the world’s financial system and has no ties to the bailouts or rigged markets tainting Labour and Conservative governments alike,” Bloomberg begins its article, titled, Carney Leading Bank Of England Seen As Scandal Remedy.
In keeping with his reputation as a top trends forecaster, Celente previously warned in 2011 of the Goldman Sachs takeover of the global financial system. In November of that year following the news that he was ripped off by MF Global the preceding month, Celente spoke with FinancialSense Newshour’s James Puplava about what he pieced together regarding the omnipresent Wall Street firm.
“And I go do some research and say, wait a minute, this MF Global is run by the wonderful Jon Corzine. Oh, you remember him—the former governor of New Jersey and then Senator until he ran that into the ground. He was a top cat with Goldman Sachs. Boy the Rothschilds would be jealous if they could see what the Goldman Sachs gang has taken over. Anyway, let’s not forget Henry Paulson under Bush was a Goldman Sachs guy, Robert Ruben under Clinton, the Treasury Secretary, was a Goldman Sachs guy that deregulated the industry, killed the Glass-Steagall act and made it legal for these guys to become open criminals Financial Sense Nov 2011.
“I knew Gary when I was over at Goldman Sachs. He was one of the boys. He said I could do this. So this is what he [Jon Corzine] is doing. What he did was he stole the money out of my account and others and, brilliant Jon Corzine, bet on European bonds. Oh you know those wonderful Italian, Greek, Portuguese, Spanish and Irish bonds…going down the toilet.
“The loan sharks have taken over this nation. They have just taken over there in Italy. They put this guy Mario Monti—they call him Super Mario. How about three card Monti? How about this guy—look at him, look at the connections! I’m not making this up. Monti. The new [Mario] Draghi head of the ECB. [Lucas] Papademos over there in Greece, three bankers just took over the deal. Where did what’s his name, Draghi come from? Oh, he was head of the Goldman Sachs group there in Europe wasn’t he?” [emphasis added to the text]
All three replacements of key positions to ‘manage’ the financial crisis in Europe were drawn from a former employees list of U.S.-based Goldman Sachs. Monti, Draghi and Papademos had worked for the Fed‘s second-largest primary dealer or the U.S. Treasury.
Apparently, it works two ways, as well. Sometimes high-ranking politicians or ‘advisers’ to these public servants transfer to Goldman Sachs presumably to replenish the stock of ‘experienced’ Washington-Wall Street team players.
Celente noticed President Obama’s notorious White House Counsel heading over to Goldman Sachs in 2010 to advise the firm on legal matters relating to its potential criminal role in the financial meltdown that began in 2008.
“This is like the fox watching the foxes. No, so the whole thing is corrupt from top down,” Celente said in a Russia Today interview in April 2010. “Look what’s going on, President Obama’s Chief Counsel Greg Craig is now working for Goldman Sachs. The Goldman Sachs gang. Wall Street’s hijacked Washington.”
According to Wikipedia, Craig’s client list reads like a Who’s Who of notorious Washington politicians, international figures, CIA personnel, and alleged CIA-connected individuals of foreign states. Interesting enough, except for Goldman Sachs, Craig has no previous record of taking on clients from the banking industry.
