Banker Babe Confirms They're Hedonists January 18, 2015
(Banker wife Baar toasted Occupy Wall Street protesters with champagne in 2011.
Her Marie Antoinette-like gesture was recorded in this YouTube) Anthony Migchels caught a glimpse of the lives of Wall Street wolves when the daughter of a Goldman Sachs executive contacted him. Related - By 2016, Richest 1% Will Own More than Remaining 99% by Anthony Migchels (henrymakow.com) A Baars family daughter has contacted me. Living and very much enjoying 'the lifestyle' herself, she is worried about the blowback against the banker decadence. The lady in purple is Mrs. Baars, wife of Goldman Sachs managing director Willem Baars, who hails from Holland. He has been making a career for himself with the infamous vampire squid that is at the core of Wall Street pirate's nest. Byacht.jpg(left, the $21 million 40 meter yacht in St. Tropez) Managing Directors are the second management layer at Goldman Sachs. Only a few dozen partners are higher up the ladder. Partners are allowed to use their own private funds in the Bank's insider trading rackets, guaranteeing enormous private wealth for the few who make it. Still, a modest 'managing director' can look forward to a $500k base salary. Bonuses for Mr. Baars typically amount to about $8 million per year. Additionally, there is an options package worth about $30 million. God only knows what Mr. Baars must do to make that kind of money. He maintains all his actions are legal. Which is not completely unbelievable, since Goldman Sachs employees in Congress write the laws. He seems to be involved in mergers and the like. Typically, the insider knowledge that consulting about these matters brings is exploited by the traders of the bank in the markets. To Mrs. Baars, the protestors are just 'peasants'. Losers, jealous of the riches of the bankers. The bankers really feel like 'Masters of the Universe'. They see themselves as 'the new Aristocracy'. To them, what they do is all 'legal' and thus justified. They deny any wrongdoing, or that their riches come at the expense of others. The protestors are basically just whining scumbags, in their view. BBentley.jpgIn the aftermath of the meeting in Wall Street on that day in November 2011, hundreds of protestors went to the Baars residence in New York and spent hours at the gates there. One of the Baars cars, a Bentley, was thrashed. This was certainly a tense moment, but to the Baars family this just shows what losers the protestors are. It's all about 'the Lifestyle'. The Baars family owns 15 luxury cars. Several mansions in America and Europe. A $20 million, 46 meter yacht in St. Tropez. "Wall Street and the City are driven by money, status, luxury, trophy wives and more money," our sources says. "Just walk into any Mayfair club and you'll see models and bottles." While Mr. Baars makes enormous profits for Goldman, Mrs. Baars' job, as a banker wife, is to look good and let the money flow. Shopping is the lady's main pass time. Trips to Milan with her girlfriends to buy shoes a routine matter. bchampagne.jpgFor the kids, there are endless parties. Spraying expensive champagne is a routine device. The fun is in knowing that the peasants would have to work for months for what they blow away in just seconds. Luxury, looking good, asset positions, new stuff. Glimmer and glamor make life nice. Are what gives status in the social scene. Within the Baars family, there is a strong sense that the money must keep coming in to keep up. Addiction to money comes with fear of loss. They're children with their hands in the cookie jar. Mrs. Baars is just an uppity blonde who likes to shop for shoes. Avarice and narcissist ambition unchecked. And it's end of life. Soon, the American economy will face the crunch of an era. The banking families that employ naive upstarts like the Baars family, are ready to ditch the vehicles, including Goldman Sachs, that have allowed them to usurp all the wealth of the nation and indeed the entire West. Their executives, no longer useful, will be thrown to the wolves. The angry masses will gladly devour them when the time comes. The 'solution' to the problems they have been creating has long been prepared. And our source? She loves both the people with whom she grew up and 'the lifestyle', but she is haunted by the venom of the disenfranchised. She faces a choice. But: it's a choice that, in different guises, we all face at some point in life; and it's the same choice that humanity as a whole will finally have to face up to too. --- Related: Ten Atrocities That Would Not Exist Without Usury First Comment from David: "The protestors are just 'peasants'. Losers, jealous of the riches of the bankers." A lot of protesters and newly poor that the likes of Mrs. Baars sneer at, had decent jobs, their own homes and had contributed all their working lives to retirement funds that were wiped out in the 2008 crash. Then they were ripped off a second time by the taxpayer bailouts to the ones who caused the crash. I admire people who become rich by inventing a better product or service that society wants to buy. The Baars simply stole their wealth, and I hope the eventual payback is not as painless as the guillotine that ended the reign of Louis XVI and Marie Antionette.
In 1906 Tarbell joined with Lincoln Steffens, Ray Stannard Baker and William A. White to establish the radical American Magazine. Steffens's biographer, Justin Kaplan, the author of Lincoln Steffens: A Biography (1974), has argued: "That summer he and his partners celebrated their freedom from McClure's house of bondage, as they now saw it. There was a spirit of picnic and honeymoon about the enterprise; affections, loyalties, professional comradeship had never seemed quite so strong before and never would again. They dealt with each other as equals." Steffens later commented: "We were all to edit a writers' magazine." Articles by Tarbell for the magazine included John D. Rockefeller: A Character Sketch (July, 1907); Roosevelt vs. Rockefeller (December, 1908); The Mysteries and Cruelties of the Tariff (November, 1910) and The Hunt for the Money Trust (May, 1913). She also wrote several books on the role of women including The Business of Being a Woman (1912) and The Ways of Women (1915).
C. C. Regier, the author of The Era of the Muckrakers (1933) has argued that it is possible to tabulate the achievements of investigative journalism by Tarbell and her friends: "The list of reforms accomplished between 1900 and 1915 is an impressive one. The convict and peonage systems were destroyed in some states; prison reforms were undertaken; a federal pure food act was passed in 1906; child labour laws were adopted by many states; a federal employers' liability act was passed in 1906, and a second one in 1908, which was amended in 1910; forest reserves were set aside; the Newlands Act of 1902 made reclamation of millions of acres of land possible; a policy of the conservation of natural resources was followed; eight-hour laws for women were passed in some states; race-track gambling was prohibited; twenty states passed mothers' pension acts between 1908 and 1913; twenty-five states had workmen's compensation laws in 1915; an income tax amendment was added to the Constitution; the Standard Oil and the Tobacco companies were dissolved; Niagara Falls was saved from the greed of corporations; Alaska was saved from the Guggenheims and other capitalists; and better insurance laws and packing-house laws were placed on the statute books."
During this period she held radical political views that she hoped would create a "socialized democracy." However, in the 1930s she became a supporter of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Tarbell criticised those who retained their socialist faith. She wrote that "communism and socialism treat human beings like mere cogs in a machine."
In her autobiography, All in the Day's Work (1939) Tarbell attempted to distance herself from the left: "All the radical element, and I numbered many friends among them, were begging me to join their movements. I soon found that most of them wanted attacks. They had little interest in balanced findings. Now I was convinced that in the long run the public they were trying to stir would weary of vituperation, that if you were to secure permanent results the mind must be convinced."
Ida Tarbell died of pneumonia in Bridgeport Hospital, Connecticut, on 6th January 1944.

Sitting in the small cell where Marie Antionette also sat, waiting to go out the small opening into the courtyard, the BASTILLE. Where the guillotine cut the head off Marie Antionette.'s physical body. There is an unseen energy, there in that cell where I sat, the sadness was so deep I actually thought I was going to pass out. When .. when, touching the actual guillotine that took Marie Antionette's life. She said "Feed the People Bread", and not the misquote that has been learned. She was a chile of "royals" number seventeen (17)? Her brother was the decider to decide what happened to his own sister, and we know what that was-is.
SICKNESS: insatiable greed.
I felt a sense of horror sitting there, after spending time in the LOUVRE, NAPOLEON has been collected, his memory, TINY bed the small man slept in, indeed. Fall-winter, 1970. STUDYING ART FROM LONDON TO PARIS, FRANCE TO THE NORTH AFRICAN CONTINENT, "DELACROIX'S PATH"!!
NOW? Well I can see serious problems, age of transparency, and those that are not really educated in ART HISTORY. HISTORY? Exactly what the worst of the species Homo Sapiens' have decided.
IDA TARBELL, WHAT IT IS ..
NOT CO-CREATORS OF ENERGY/IES! PREDATOR MASS MURDERERS' OF OWN SPECIES TO GET "RICH"! LIE-CHEAT-STEAL-KILL and call the acts "ROYAL FLUSH"!!
