Wall Street Journal: Jared Kushner has ties with Goldman Sachs and George Soros


…by Jonas E. Alexis


The Wall Street Journal has made things a little complicated for Donald Trump and Jared Kushner. The newspaper reported:

“Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, is currently in business with Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and billionaires George Soros and Peter Thiel, according to people familiar with the matter and securities filings…

“Mr. Kushner co-founded Cadre in 2014 with his brother Joshua and Ryan Williams, a 29-year-old friend and former employee of Kushner Cos., the family-controlled business that Mr. Kushner ran until recently. Cadre markets properties to prospective investors, who can put their money into specific buildings or into an investment fund run by Cadre, which collects fees on each deal.

“To get off the ground, Cadre turned to a Goldman Sachs fund and a number of high-profile investors … Cadre also secured a $250 million line of credit from the family office of George Soros, a top Democratic donor whom Mr. Trump criticized during his presidential campaign, the people close to the company said. Mr. Soros’s family office is also an investor in Cadre.”[1]

If this turns out to be true, then we can say again that Washington is trapped in an ideology that will never turn out to be good for the American people. It will only be good for the Powers That Be. Throughout his presidential election, Trump promised again and again to overthrow the subversive movements that have dragged America to perpetual wars, perpetual debt, and perpetual misery. As he put it then,

“We will no longer surrender this country to the false song of globalism. No American citizen will ever again feel that their needs come second to the citizens of a foreign country.”

Trump again declared last year:

“For those who control the levers of power in Washington and for the global special interests … Our campaign represents a true existential threat like they haven’t seen before. This is not simply another four-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we, the people, reclaim control over our government.

“It’s a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth, and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.”[2]

Right before Trump’s presidential inauguration, Steve Bannon declared: “The globalists gutted the American working class and created a middle class in Asia. The issue now is about Americans looking to not get fu$ked over.”[3]

Yet after one hundred days in office, Trump came out and declared that he is a “nationalist and a globalist.” Interesting, isn’t it?

  1. I find it amusing that people are just now finding out about the Soros and Trump connection. Anyone who looked into Trumps business dealings would have found that not only are they personal friends, but that Soros financed some of Trumps business deals. I tried to show this to Trumpets before the election when they were screaming about the Clinton-Soros connection, but they refused to believe it. It was all there in black and white. Talk about cognitive disconnect. The Trump-Adelson connection was also very apparent when Adelson offered Trump millions for his campaign. Adelson is also the money man for Nutty. The obvious down side to this is apparent…at least to those with any sense.

  2. It’s pretty obvious even to the slowest voter that the US political system is irrecoverable. Dems are anti Trump in many cases for irrational reasons. Trump voters also now know that they have been thoroughly duped. The US now has a male version of Imelda Marcos as a president and a foreign policy owned by a foreign country.

    Read this article describing how Jared Kushner spent billions of dollars of mostly borrowed money to buy a money losing building at 666 fifth ave. in Manhattan NY before he sold his share to a family trust to avoid conflicts of interest. No one seems to be worrying about where the money will come from to pay for all these losses. It is not what you know but who you know that counts in New York. Obviously people who can borrow hundreds of millions or billions of dollars can take risks at very high levels compared to ordinary folks like you and me especially if the lenders take the losses if they happen. This is one of the reasons prices of buildings in New York are so inflated in price compared to other places. The high flyers want and promote these inflated prices so they can make money at the front end before the impending crash which wipes out the lenders or holders of the “bag”. This is what happened when the bottom fell out of the markets in 2008 and you can be sure it is not far off again today.

    • What great “contribution” has Kushner made to have access to this kind of money and render him a high flyer in New York at a very young age? Most banks act like they are doing you a favor by loaning money on a garden variety house in most places. Obviously Kushner know the “right” people with the “right” stuff to make him a high flyer and big shot in New York. Trump never disclosed during the campaign that he was going to appoint this big shot as one of his assistants did he? This is lying by omission.

    • Trump himself now has the potential for vast conflicts of interest with decisions he makes and possible profits or losses on his real estate holdings. It is totally meaningless to claim that these conflicts somehow vanish into thin air by simply saying his son and others now make the decisions when they are a phone call away from him at any time. This is of course why he refuses to release his tax returns. Conflict of interest laws in our government are a total joke like virtually every aspect of out totally corrupt and outlaw government today run by the whores in Congress who are all evidently on the take. The Founders of America would be very ashamed if they were here to see what this country has degenerated into and what it will likely degenerate to in relatively short order by the time Trump starts WWIII and much of the U.S. gets to find out what the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki discovered it was like to be incinerated by a nuclear bomb. Impeach Trump before he blows up the planet.

    • http://nypost.com/2017/05/04/jared-kushner-sells-swanky-brooklyn-heights-home/ Look at the easy money Kushner made from the sale of this 7,000 sq. ft five story house in Brooklyn NY built about 27 years before the Civil War! This house is only 25 ft wide but 5 stories high! Who would want to live in such a house? Yet he paid about $7.4 million three years ago and sold it for $12.9 million, not a bad profit for a very undesirable place to live, obviously at a totally inflated price. In Georgia about 6 months ago a fabulous about 10,000 sq. ft. home, about 12 years old, on a golf course with elevator, separate apartment, two gourmet kitchens, on three levels, two lots, four car garage, beautiful landscaped lot, with pool, sold for only $800,000 which is $0.8 million or eight tenths of one million dollars. People paying these outrageous inflated prices for centuries old junk in New York are being fleeced. The only way they can sell this high priced junk is if some bank will loan the money to people who do not necessarily have the ability to pay it back either. People should move out of the disgusting cesspool New York so those inflated prices will drop like a rock to where they belong. It is a crime to provide federal loan guarantees and low interest rates on grossly inflated building prices in this cesspool New York to allow investors like Kushner, who produce nothing of value, to make easy millions of dollars at public expense.

    • Imagine you and your family sleeping on the 5th floor of this roughly 180 year old fire trap in New York when a fire broke out! The only thing these high rise buildings in New York are good for is committing suicide as someone usually does almost every day in the cesspool of America, New York. Jumping off a high balcony is an easy way to end the misery of living in New York and the United States today and many people, men and women do it every day. Often they are or were very rich before they lost it all. Easy come easy go.
