bank of americaOne would think that TBTF bank CEO’s would have learned from Lloyd Blankfein’s epic blunder when he stated that Goldman Sachs was doing God’s work in an interview- inciting a firestorm of negative publicity for the bank… 
One would think.

In the midst of gold and silver’s relentless attacks last week by the cartel, we wrote that investors should be prepared for a potential bottom in gold and silver on or around Monday 2/25, options expiration in both gold and silver.

Goldman seems to have validated that call this morning, as only one day after March options expiration, the Vampire Squid has advised clients to sell gold, slashed its 2013-2014 outlook for gold to $1450/oz, and called for an end to the gold bull market

god's workerGod’s workers at the Vampire Squid endured a PR nightmare last year after a former director wrote an op-ed in the NYT claiming that Goldman routinely traded against their own clients, and referred to their clients internally as muppets.
While Muppet-Gate has passed for Goldman, it appears that the business of intentionally fleecing clients continues as usual, as Goldman issued its clients Monday a recommendation to sell positions in Heinz (HNZ) on risk of continued top line disappointment, which today (only 3 days later) was acquired by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire at a 20% premium to the last share price

God’s worker indeed.

The legendary Jim Sinclair sent an email alert to subscribers this weekend, warning that dollar based entitlement payments will be reduced to nearly meaningless levels on a single day, and that the result will also solve the health care cost crisis in the US, by accelerating the attrition of pensioners and removing the most sick from the equation.

Sinclair seems to agree with our statement that Blythe Masters may be responsible for the greatest loss of human life in history when the derivatives collapse is complete.

Regarding the timing of the collapse of the dollar, Sinclair states: Timing is a question of when our masters via Goldman Sachs decide to pull the plug on confidence in the US dollar.
