Haven't you ever heard of diversification? These guys play both sides
regularly. Steve Bannon is a Goldman alum even! Sports gamblers do the same
thing and will bet on both teams in a game regularly based on various
strategies and players getting put onto the field or not.

Okay, let me see if I understand this. Those ten thousand articles in
Alternet, CommonDreams, Huffington Post, Counterpunch, ZNet, Salon,
Truthdig and Truthout calling attention to the internecine ties between
Goldman-Sachs and the Clinton campaign were wrong. In reality,
Goldman-Sachs was part of a stealthy faction under the leadership of
Breitbart.com that preferred Trump because he wanted to "integrate
Russia into the global capitalist system".

I don't mind vulgar Marxism if there is at least a modicum of
intelligence at work. This is pure drivel.
