Trump’s Picks: Gary Cohn for National Economic Council

Remember that awesome Trump speech in West Palm Beach, FL about the globalist establishment symbolized by Goldman Sachs bankers like Lloyd Blankfein which was cut and aired as Trump’s closing argument of the election?

“I know the guys at Goldman Sachs,” Donald Trump told supporters in South Carolina last February. “They have total control over Hillary Clinton.”

Clinton’s fealty to the finance industry in general — and Goldman Sachs in particular — was one of Trump’s most consistent lines of attack against the Democratic nominee.

The closing argument of the president-elect’s campaign featured images of Hillary Clinton and Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, as a voice-over decried the “global power structure” that had “robbed our working class.”

Thanks, in part, to Clinton’s genuine personal and professional ties to the mega-bank, Trump’s attacks proved effective: Even the GOP nominee’s biggest detractors came to view his opponent as uniquely deferential to Wall Street’s interests — despite the fact that she was proposing new regulations on the industry, while Trump was pledging to free it from the shackles of Dodd-Frank.”

Remember all those attacks on Ted Cruz over his wife’s small-time position at the branch office of Goldman Sachs in Texas?

“Republican rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was blasted for being married to a Goldman Sachs employee.

“Goldman Sachs owns him, he will do anything they demand. Not much of a reformer!” Trump said on Twitter on Jan. 16, 2016.

“I know the guys at Goldman Sachs. They have total, total control over him. Just like they have total control over Hillary Clinton,” Trump blasted his Democratic rival at a South Carolina rally in February.

A Trump transition official refused to confirm Cohn’s appointment in a Friday morning conference call.”

We’re going to #DrainTheSwamp! Just kidding!

Trump has picked the Jewish president of Goldman Sachs, Gary Cohn, to head the National Economic Council which coordinates the Treasury, Labor and Commerce Departments. This is the person he chose to be his top economic advisor.

    • Maybe Trump has some dirt on them so he was able to force them to betray their masters. Japanese proverb says that one traitor does more damage than 7 samurai,s.

      To take down Golman and rest of the folk, it,s good when you have some insiders who know enemy weak point and all inside info.

      • My take is slightly different.

        If the Jews pull the plug on the Stock Exchange or Bonds it will be something that a Cohen will have to explain.

      • Bingo. I may be wishin’ & hopin’ – but keep your friends close and your enemies closer. We’ll see.

    • He is going to have to purge the mestizo if he doesn’t appease the working classes in the Upper Midwest.

      Thread that needle.

  1. Did anyone really think the system could be changed through voting? Again, Trump’s presidency gives secessionists and the White resistance a few extra years to prepare and to arm. Use that time wisely.

    • Thank you, Glacier. Have faith – Mr. Trump earned your vote. Now let him do with work he needs to get done, without being micro-managed.

      It won’t be perfect, because nothing ever is, BUT, there will be a vast improving of the economy, coming long term, because it been off the rails for a very long time.

      Have a good day!

  2. I seem to recall Chris313, both here and on his site, warning that there would be buyer’s remorse after Trump is elected. It appears that he may have been right all along.

        • It’s going to feel like fascism for mestizo and blacks.

          The sliver of the working class in the upper Midwest will have to be pandered to.

          Also fascism is in some cases compatible with the presence of Jews. I’m thinking Dolfuss and Mussolini here.

          In Italy it took 16 years and pressure from AH to get anything National Socialist done.

          • Hitler wasn’t a national socialist or a fascist. He was neither. He was simply a racialist who ran a national socialist, then removed the party insiders, then racialized the standard imperialism of Mussolini (to a pro-German racialism).

          • Mr. Besarab, clearly you are intelligent, but, this remark is not.

            There was a to more to Hitler than race.

            If not, then Winston Churchill would not have said, ‘If Hitler had died in 1938, he would have been remembered as ‘Adolf The Great’…

          • You couldn’t be more wrong and more right.

            The tragedy is that it will absolutely be fascism for all of us, perhaps the worst for whites as a group.

          • “You couldn’t be more wrong and less bright.”

            Fixed that for ya. I assume that is what you meant, because, well, it’s Captain John after all.:)

    • True.

      It’s also true that, so to speak, Trump made a deal with the Devil. By winning on a populist and nationalist platform, all we have to do is throw his own words back at him whenever he betrays that platform.

      I pointed this out at the time. I said that if he backed off his platform it could be used to red-pill and radicalize his followers

        • Agreed. Denise, I recall you were one of the first to make this point on both this site and Radix Journal. Some on the Alt Right have become much too invested in Trump.

        • Dear Miss Denise,
          Please don’t start qualifying, when Mr. Trump has not even got in office. Please also bear in mind that George Lincoln Rockwell could not solve the many problems, either, as not only must any president face hundreds of bought and paid for representatives, and the tentacles of multi-national corporations and endless alliances, and a quasi-Bolshevik court system, the system, itself, IS a problem.

          As you may well fathom, it is no accident that Mr. Griffin, I, and quite a few others, here, a secession oriented.

          Be that as it may, Mr. Trump has fought enormous battles to get this far, and yet – they are just the beginning.

          If he does not deliver much, there will always be time for the rifle.

          There is always time for that, though, even that does not necessarily auger deliverance, as, right after the first revolution, (1775) Rothschild got his tentacles back around us shortly thereafter- nullifying the war, and then, again, in the War of 1812, we fought to get away from him, and he still got back control – in spite of Andrew Jackson’s determined fight against him.

          The problem, most of all, is a largely apathetick and naive citizenry, and Trump, for better or worse, has been appointed to remedy some of the downsides of that

          Yet, we have reasons to be thankful : Miss Hillary is already gone, The Bolshevik party in a shambles, Obama soon to be, and political correctness has taken a severe hit!

          Let us cheer him, and let us put our faith in him.

          He deserves that, and so do we.

          Have a good evening, and expect good things.

  3. No serious person was expecting perfection even within the limitations of a civic nationalist / national populist model, but no one was expecting betrayal of this magnitude either. Jesus Christ, what an unconscionable, brazen, lying motherfucker Donald Trump is. Trump clearly gave too much power to Pence and Preibus. However, he is still the top man. This is his fault.

    • Dear Lew,
      I’ve got good news for you : it’s not a betrayal, nor is Mr. Trump allowing others to foist their picks upon him.

      No, Sir – what he is doing is sending in the sharks to deal with the sharks.

      You don’t send a wheelbarrow out to confront a T-34 tank – you send a King Tiger.

      Trump knows what he is doing.

      Close your eyes and have some faith.

        • Thank you, Sir.

          Trump has no choice. He cannot send in Gary Bauer or Mother Theresa to deal with Manhatten Jewish sharks – for they won’t even know what hit them.

          But, let’s say I’m wrong, and Trump is just a fake (which I don’t believe) we’ve made out bed and will have to lie in it, until 2020.

          All the best to you, Miss Renee, and the kid!

        • In that case, Captain, you’d bes’ make sure the commander of the Pz Mark IV is Hauptsturmfuhrer Michael Wittman, and not some well educated professor from the Wittenberg Academy for economick sciences, ’cause, otherwise, the Jews in the T-34s will be on his flanks in all but a moment – and then?

          Well, I leave to it to picture it…

          • One on one, did you not see the caveat? Wittman drove a fixed turret tank destroyer before he had the Tiger and he should have stuck with it. Some Canadian warehouse monkeys killed Wittman right? Or claimed to.

          • I apologize, Captain. But, don’t you know that any Jews in T-34s may just be one, but, they will hire others in dummy T-34s, to make it seem like the Pz IV is outnumbered>? …

            Thus, as you know, ‘all else will not be equal. LOL!!!

          • Also, the Jewish T-34 commander will also hire the German media to broadcast to the German tank commander how hopelessly outnumbered he is, in his sector!

          • Yes, Wittman drove a short-barreled Sturmgeschutz. And, yes, he was taken down by a Canadian tank trap.

            God bless you and have a good day. All was just in the spirit of fun!

  4. Yeah, you must not have noticed my message about the head of Trump’s business advisory council Stephen Schwartzman. That Jew makes Cohn look like a nice guy.

  5. Yes I remember the speech from W Palm beach – it was amazing.

    The hypocrisy of this pick after what Trump said during the election is astounding. I’m sure the true believers are already coming up with theories about how genius this pick is.

    I really hope all their theories come true. The first 100 days will tell the tale once and for all.

    • If you mean the speech where he sounded like Adolf from the 1930s, it didn’t convince me at all. To put it in acting terms, Trump was phoning it in.

      • but it was an amazing speech though.

        He gave it during the darkest moment of his campaign – right after the access Hollywood tape when he needed to rile up his base.

        • He didn’t write it, he just read it to get what he needed from useful idiots.

          Reminded me of a guy at one of Trump’s earlier rallies screaming “Its the Jews!”. Trump curled his lip in disgust and said something like “Don’t hurt him. He is supposed to be on our side. I think…”

          An Alt-Right guy made aYyoutube video later, declaring Trump is Jew wise. He’s one of us! The usual right wing sperginess.

          • Yes the speech was Bannon. Bannon pulled out all the stops after the access Hollywood tape. He basically saved Trump’s ass.

    • He either didn’t have any people in mind or he’s letting the RNC do the picks because he’s afraid they’ll join up with the democrats to Impeach him. The military picks also show he feels insecure and wants the Army on his side.

  6. One comment more. Guys like Putin or Trump don,t want to be puppets. They want to be puppetmasters and rule others.

    Donald has everything. Why he need,s presidency ? He has everything, money good life. Why he need to be somebody,s puppet ???

    Does anybody really believe that Donald went through all of this only to be empty suit and fill somebody,s else orders ???

    I don,t believe.

        • Dear Lorax,
          The man is not even been sworn in, yet. Give him a chance. Have some faith. If it is true, what you say, you can make that judgement before you go to the polls in 2020.

          • What I’m attempting to make people face, Junius, is that we don’t have four years to wait.

            I told a friend a year ago that the future of western civilization will be decided in the next 2-3 years, maybe 4 maximum.

            We either turn things around in the next couple or we’ll never be able to again.

          • Dear Lorax,
            I understand your pain, because being a Tarheel Confederate and fireating secessionist I preach what you said all the time. That said, either we are blind or the citizenry is, because they want to stay in ‘the union’ as White society is crusht, and they are told how to think, be, and act.

          • Let me say something else to you, Mr. Lorax. When you are young, (under 40 – and, particularly under 30) you tend to see things in very very dramatick ways. Now, I am not saying that you’ve not got your eye on the truth, nor am I suggesting that the situation does not require attention – it does.

            What I AM saying, however, is that a lot of positive things have happened this year – Italian ‘No”, ‘Brexit’ ‘The Defeat of Miss Hillary’, and next year looks set for some good things, too.

            So, please not only see what is dark, but, light, too, and enjoy your life.

            You’ll be old before you know it, and then it will be time to die.

            All the best!

  7. Ironically, Trump’s picking of Jews is what undermines your criticism of Jews. Basically Trump sold out because of his class position, with no outside power hustling him.

    • I respectfully disagree, Mr. Besarab.

      Mr. Griffin criticizes my daddy’s folks because of the double Us – Usurpation and Usury, not because they’re incapable.

      Anyway, Mr. Trump has no choice, as the New England economick system is largely a Jewish contraption, and, as such, needs Jewish racketeers to manage it.

      Have a nice evening, in Haifa!

  8. It s just some advisory group.

    Wait until Trump starts appponting Germans, Dutch and Swiss to Federal Reserve Board.

  9. Brad, respectfully, calm down, my man.

    Granted, I’m in investments myself, so my bias against Wall Street isn’t nearly what yours is. But if you’re asking me who I prefer as heading this advisory board, a GS guy or some university pinhead, I’m going to take the Goldman pick every day and twice on Sunday.

    You do realize Wilbur Ross, the pick for Commerce sec and someone fully sympatico with Trump on trade is nonetheless a Wall Street guy, right?

    I’ve heard plenty of grousing, but with the exception of Kobach for DHS I’ve heard no suggestions from the alt-right on who they DO want for these economic picks! Who did you want, Robert Reich??

    • Trump said during the campaign that he knew people that no one had ever heard of that were better than all of them. Where are all the people he said he knew?

      Goldman Sachs are the guys no one had heard of that were the best?

    • Actually, Reich would have been a great choice for Labor if Reich would have taken the job. It would have affirmed Trump’s commitment to the middle class and working class rather than people who make 8 figures each year.

      There is no evidence except for Ross that any of these power players share Trump’s populist vision or, it seems now more accurately, the populist vision Trump led people to believe he has.

      • To each his own, but sorry, Reich is WAY too far to the economic Left for my tastes. Choosing a leftist union lackey would be practically begging to be stabbed in the back. Anyone who thinks a dyed-in-the-wool Marxist like Reich is on board with the immigration agenda any more than the Wall Streeters is smoking rope.

        I want a little protectionism and more of a safety net for veterans and working class whites, I have no interest in becoming a Euro-socialist, cradle to grave entitlement state!

        • I am not a fan of Reich at all but even less for Goldman. The only way Goldman can even be seen in any favorable light is if Trump has a total lock-down control of them like some of the true believers on twitter are claiming. I hope their right for America’s sake.

    • The thing is, this particular pick. The truth is, despite catchy and effective talking points and propaganda lines to the contrary, there is no shortage of talent in the world today for about any kind of endeavor you can name. Moreover, the problems we have and the fixes needed, in this case financially speaking, are not particularly complex, like, say, cancer cures and fusion reactors are to medicine and engineering. Doubtlessly about any experienced and competent financial, Wall Street type can easily navigate to the solutions we need in this area. In other words, there simply was no need to pick the president of Goldman Sachs for this position, considering all the negative baggage surrounding Goldman Sachs these days. Ditto all this concerning all the other establishment picks. Trump simply did not need to do it in the face of the platform he ran on.

  10. Side Note: It’s not just the economic and financial appointments where Trump has the wolf watching the sheep. For anyone who may not be aware, General Mattis is on the board of General Dynamics, a key player in the Military Industrial Complex and one of the largest defense contractors in the world.

    • General Dynamics is also one of the main developers of advanced robotics. Some of these will be replacing many workers in the not too distant future. Have a gander at this one. (Oops, Guess it is Boston Dynamics here, but they are up for sale and General Dynamics is tapped by some to be a very likely potential buyer. Boston Dynamics is a big military contractor, too.)

        • It’s real. That is the latest model, unless they have already came out with another. It is no exaggeration that this one is almost twice as advanced as the previous model, and to illustrate how fast advances are coming in these days, this one came in less than three years after the previous model.

        • They have all sorts of different robotic dogs. There are a bunch of videos. They are most likely heading at making robots to attack. You can’t tell it so much in the first video I posted, but in longer ones, when the man is hassling it, he is obviously being very careful to stay well at arm’s length from the robot, and wary of it. Why? But here is a dog video.

    • But it’s hardly surprising that a retired 4 star general should sit on the board of a major “defense” contractor.

  11. Unlike Bathhouse Barry no big shot Wall Street jew is telling Trump whom he must appoint and to which position they must be appointed. Trump is his own man, he is not for sale and he makes his own decisions. And that’s exactly why jewry has been so hostile towards him.

    • This. I think Trump is playing nice – he still must get inaugurated and TAKE POWER. It’s not a done deal until he’s in office. THEN – we’ll see.

    • It would be amazing if after the inauguration Trump in front of the whole nation commands his cabinet and congress to kneel before him and they all bow – only then will I smile.

    • You’re forgetting the MSM attacks against Hillary, the Podesta dumps, weeks before the election. Some people in power were gunning for Trump. I think it always was or had become *the* most powerful people.

      For those who don’t believe in the Illuminati, I’d suggest you read up a bit on Bukovski. He was the Soviet dissident who’d cycled in and out of the psikhushkas or psychiatric gulags Kruschev set up all over the USSR. He was celebrated upon its breakup as a political martyr and was granted access to the most top secret documents from the Communist regime. He said, back in spring 2014, that there had been a more discreet plan and more discreet group of people orchestrating things than he’d figured.

      Certain elements of the jews act out the theater set up by these most inner circle elites, some do it wittingly but many are socialized to believe in the role they’re playing.

      Bukovski also said he thought Europe had a very narrow window of time to save itself. That was 2 1/2 years ago…

  12. I’m watching DeVoss speak in MI right now, at Trump’s Thank You rally. The middle-aged socialite is supposed to make Urban Yoof into Jeffersonian Republican rocket scientists. This is going to be fun. Some-one in the crowd is effing with her……………I don’t know what happened, but something happened and disrupted her speech.

  13. We White Nationalists have been supporting Trump all along – and it’s not hurt him at all. AT all. It’s all about using Trump to advance our goals.
    Many among us have been black-pilling ourselves all along. Trump has PROVEN that he has brilliant gut instincts all along. Geez Louise – let’s get him in office. He was the ONLY candidate that doesn’t want to exterminates Whites. PLEASE remember this!

    • Respectfully, Denise, I disagree.

      I don’t think his agenda is much different from any of the others. He wants to be king of an oligarchy, mostly jewish, which presides over a brown mass of peasants. He’s just going about things in a different way – a sneakier and possibly more dangerous one.

  14. I’m still glad Trump won instead of Hillary, but he is, at best, a chance for The System to live for a few more years. If he lets the middle and working class down, then and only then, will we get someone closer to our viewpoint.

    Trump has destroyed the mainstream outlook for presidential candidates and there’s likely no going back. That doesn’t mean he won’t be overwhelmed by insiders, though.

    The worse is better ideology led to Trump, and if continued, it will lead to white nationalism. That’s the beating heart of the right going forward, especially as baby boomers become irrelevant.

  15. I had buyer’s remorse before I even filled in the ballot. I don’t trust that level. They are not benevolent unless it serves them well. They are too self-absorbed, too selfish, too self-centered, and will literally destroy or kill to stay at that income/power level. Only a good Christian background and a proper disciplinarian father (not necessarily constant contact discipline but more like Sam Dickson’s father) would lead me to believe we have a great chance of turning things around. Trump is merely a reflection of a schism within the elite class. Now Trump is not a .01 percenter, the ones that truly run the world. But, he is part of a class that may not see a happy ending either. In fact, their demise might come from the top and the bottom simultaneously. Of course, maybe his sole agenda was only to grease his wheels and have access to all those world class underground bunkers (far better than even a wealthy builder could build)???

    Anyway, keep in mind that there is a chance, albeit quite small, that he will continue to have some swamp creatures in his administration until the military is back in its proper shape at which point it can totally have his back. It’s a long shot but a possibility.

    Time for all of you to let his transition team know our displeasure….. I have!

    I’ve even made it easy for you:

    • That you can write that second paragraph after writing the first almost brings tears to my eyes.

      None of you have taken a perspective from outside the system which comes from having to survive within the very heart of the communist regime that is the NYC area, paradoxically. You still have this hope and faith in your hearts.

      You have to turn that hope in a different direction. Trump is not our friend in any way. He was just a neutral combatant for a time.

      Now he’s the enemy. The only future will be forged outside the system.

  16. What did people think Trump would be exactly? Hitler reborn? Please… this is as expected. The best we can hope for is deportations, a wall and stricter immigration control. Hopefully no more wars. The economics side will probably be a mix (hopefully it won’t be too good). As Richard Spencer has said: now is the time to start criticising Trump and stop with the “God emperor” nonsense.
