Former Bush administration Treasury Secretary Henry A. Paulson has come out in favor of Hillary Clinton for president. Not that it should come as any surprise considering that the former Goldman Sachs CEO would not be supporting Donald Trump and like all of those who have reaped the rewards of globalism as the ordinary working class got the shaft he knows who will protect his interests. Paulson if you recall was the man who got on his knees to beg Nancy Pelosi for the bailout back in 2008 after his Wall Street buddies and their reckless gambling blew a hole in the economy. Pelosi and her fellow travelers pitched in to save Paulson’s cronies and the rest is history. Mr. Paulson made his appeal in the nexus of anti-Trump hatred: the Washington Post Editorial page.
Breitbart News lights into Hillary’s big backer with scathing blast of truth telling in the article entitled “Hank ‘Meltdown’ Paulson Cites Hillary’s Globalist Platform as Reason for Endorsement”:
Hank Paulson, George W. Bush’s treasury secretary, who presided over both the meltdown of the U.S. economy and the subsequent bailout of his close friends and associates, has endorsed Hillary Clinton — citing his belief that she’d be more likely to enact globalist policies on trade and immigration as part of the reason for his endorsement.
Paulson also posits that Clinton would be more likely to cut Americans’ medicare and social security, which Paulson cites as a top priority following the financial collapse he helped to create.
Paulson is also the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, which has given Hillary Clinton hundreds of thousands of dollars for speeches. According to Politico, Goldman Sachs rewarded Clinton with a total of $675,000 for three paid speeches.
“When Hillary Clinton spoke to Goldman Sachs executives and technology titans at a summit in Arizona in October of 2013, she spoke glowingly of the work the bank was doing raising capital and helping create jobs, according to people who saw her remarks,” Politico writes. “She spent no time criticizing Goldman or Wall Street more broadly for its role in the 2008 financial crisis.”
“It was pretty glowing about us,” one attendee told Politico, “She sounded more like a Goldman Sachs managing director.”
Speaking glowingly of the government subsidized Wall Street con artists is an understatement, she probably practically got on her knees and blew them all for all of that illicit dough that she received off of those secret speeches. Clinton front groups are already saturating the airwaves with deceptive negative ads over Trump’s comments in the aftermath of Thursday’s Brexit referendum. The globalists – of which she is one – have each other’s backs because at the end of the day they all feed from the same trough.
In the WAPO piece – “When it comes to Trump, a Republican Treasury secretary says: Choose country over party” – Paulson issues a call for all RAT’s to climb aboard the Hillary 2016 garbage barge:
Republicans stand at a crossroads. With Donald Trump as the presumptive presidential nominee, we are witnessing a populist hijacking of one of the United States’ great political parties. The GOP, in putting Trump at the top of the ticket, is endorsing a brand of populism rooted in ignorance, prejudice, fear and isolationism. This troubles me deeply as a Republican, but it troubles me even more as an American. Enough is enough. It’s time to put country before party and say it together: Never Trump.
When it comes to the presidency, I will not vote for Donald Trump. I will not cast a write-in vote. I’ll be voting for Hillary Clinton, with the hope that she can bring Americans together to do the things necessary to strengthen our economy, our environment and our place in the world. To my Republican friends: I know I’m not alone.
As if any additional proof was needed that the Washington Post is in bed with Hillary and the morally bankrupt Wall Street-Chamber of Commerce establishment this would be it. Getting a lecture on what is good for the economy from a turd like Paulson is about as surreal that it gets because in any country that wasn’t run by thieves and incompetents the bastard would be in jail.
