Goldman Sachs stole at least half a trillion dollars in a derivatives scheme. Trying the case was a Jewish prosecutor, a Jewish judge sit on the case, and a Jewish head of the SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) for the case. The stolen money, amounting to at least half a trillion dollars, and the tens of thousands of ruined lives that resulted from the stolen pension funds resulted in no punishment for Lloyd Blankfein and Gary Cohn, and Goldman Sachs only had to pay penalties amounting to one week's revenue for the company at the time. The people whom the Goldman Sachs Executives stole from got no bailout, but the few toxic assets that Goldman Sachs had not been able to sell off, that the company was still holding, when the bubble burst were bailed out with TARP money. Thus, Goldman Sachs wound up being paid by the U.S. taxpayer for having stolen over half a trillion dollars from pension and retirement funds, so they could get the money they could have gotten from selling the few toxic assets they had not yet been able to pawn off on victims before the bubble burst.
