Goldman Sachs Bank and Other International Banks Assist the Maduro Regime in Venezuela



On May 30, 2017, Venezuelans protested in front of the New York City headquarters of the banking firm Goldman Sachs over its purchase of Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) bonds.

Opponents of the bloody regime of dictator Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela have requested Wall Street banks not to purchase Venezuelan bonds that would assist the regime to continue to oppress and to kill freedom-seeking protesters in cities across Venezuela. The National Assembly of Venezuela, which is controlled by opponents of the cruel and oppressive Maduro regime, has recently requested international financial institutions to avoid any transactions that might help the regime financially. This regime is responsible for a multitude of assassinations and other human-rights abuses.

On May 28, 2017, Goldman Sachs purchased $2.8 billion bonds from Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) at a discount. Goldman Sachs’s asset-management division paid the Venezuelan communist regime about $865 million for $2.8 billion worth of bonds—or 31 cents on the dollar. The bonds that were issued by state oil company Petróleos de Venezuela SA in 2014 will mature in 2022.

On May 30, 2017, Kejal Vyas and Anatoly Kurmanaev in Caracas, Venezuela and Julie Wernau in New York wrote an article titled “Goldman Sachs under Fire for Venezuela Bond Deal” which was published in The Wall Street Journal.

Julio Borges, who appears sitting, is president of the National Assembly of Venezuela which is controlled by opponents of the dictatorial Maduro regime.

The reporters explained that the President of National Assembly of Venezuela, Julio Borges, wrote a letter to Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein and stated the following: “It is apparent Goldman Sachs decided to make a quick buck off the suffering of the Venezuelan people. I also intend to recommend to any future democratic government of Venezuela not to recognize or pay on these bonds.” Mr. Borges said National Assembly would launch an investigation into the Goldman Sachs transaction. He also warned that any future opposition government “would not forget where Goldman Sachs stood when it had to choose between supporting the Maduro dictatorship and democracy for our country.”

Venezuela is near bankruptcy and there is a tremendous need for hard currency. Julio Borges stated that the financial assistance given by Goldman Sachs to the tyranny in Venezuela will make them stronger. Borges said that up to now 57 people have been assassinated, 13,000 have been wounded, and about 2,000 have been arrested and prosecuted by military tribunals since the massive protests began two months ago.

Goldman Sachs responded in a statement saying said it bought the securities, which are held in funds and accounts it manages on behalf of clients, from a broker and did not interact with the Venezuelan government. “We recognize that the situation is complex and evolving and that Venezuela is in crisis,” the bank said. “We agree that life there has to get better, and we made the investment in part because we believe it will,” Goldman Sachs added.

The reporters pointed out that Goldman Sachs has been increasing its Venezuelan holdings in recent months. Moreover, a government official said that the regime is looking at all options to raise money it owes to key allies like Russia and China.

Other financial institutions have purchased Venezuelan bonds including J.P. Morgan Chase and Company, Fidelity Investments, BlackRock Inc., T. Rowe Price Group, HSBC Holdings PLC, and Pacific Investment Management Co. Representatives for BlackRock, Fidelity, HSBC, and Pimco declined to comment.

The reporters explained that Ricardo Hausmann, who is a former Venezuelan planning minister and a critic of the Maduro government, last week urged J.P. Morgan Chase and Company to remove Venezuelan bonds from its benchmark emerging-market debt index. That would allow investors who trade entire asset classes to avoid holding debt issued by a government accused of major human rights abuses.

It is shameful that while Venezuelan patriots are demonstrating and dying in streets throughout many cities of that nation, international bankers are giving financial assistance and oxygen to the tyrannical Maduro regime. Obviously, these international bankers do not care about the freedom and liberty of Venezuela. All that these international bankers want is to maximize profits by buying bonds at a tremendous discount and enormous interest rates for their financial international institutions. This writer hopes that when Venezuela becomes a democratic country, the bonds that were purchased by these international bankers will not be paid.

The fact that international bankers are propping up the communist regime in Venezuela at a time when is almost bankrupt and could fall has happened many times in history when many, but not all, international bankers have assisted communist regimes come to power and kept helping them financially to stay in power. International bankers financed the Bolshevik Revolution in the Soviet Union. They continued supporting the Soviet Union as its economy deteriorated in spite of the many crimes and millions of Soviet citizens who were killed. International bankers have also supported the bloody Castro regime in Cuba.

The international bankers who financed the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia

Jacob Henry Schiff, whose German name was Jakob Heinrich Schiff, was born on January 10, 1847 in Frankfurt, Germany. His father, Moses Schiff, was a broker for the Rothschilds.

Schiff came to the United States after the Civil War and joined the firm Kuhn, Loeb & Co. Among many other things, he helped finance the expansion of American railroads and the Japanese military efforts against Tsarist Russia in the Russo-Japanese War.

Schiff also became a director of many important corporations, including the National City Bank of New York, Equitable Life Assurance Society, Wells Fargo & Company, and the Union Pacific Railroad. In many of his interests, he was associated with E. H. Harriman. Jacob Schiff died very wealthy on September 25, 1920.

Nicholas II by Boissonnas & Eggler c1909.jpg

Czar Nicholas II was the last Emperor of Russia. He ruled from November 1, 1894 until his forced abdication on March 15, 1917. Nicholas II and his family were imprisoned. In the spring of 1918, Nicholas II was handed over to the local Ural Soviet. With the approval of the bloody dictator Vladimir Lenin, Czar Nicholas II and his family were eventually assassinated by the Bolsheviks on the night of July 16 and 17, 1918.

Gary Allen has a chapter in his book None Dare Call It Conspiracy explaining how international bankers spent millions to overthrow Czar Nicholas II of Russia and help the communists achieve power in that nation. Allen pointed out that Jacob Schiff, who was the head of the very powerful Jewish banking firm Kuhn, Loeb & Co., spent millions to overthrow Czar Nicholas II of Russia and more millions to overthrow the government of Alexander Kerensky in order to allow Vladimir Lenin and the communists to take over.


Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, better known by the alias Lenin (1870–1924), was a Russian communist revolutionary, who ruled as a dictator in Russia and the Soviet Union when the name was changed. Under his tyrannical regime, the Soviet Union became a one-party nation ruled by the Communist Party. Millions of people died of famine and mass murders under his despotic rule. Thanks to the international bankers who helped Lenin and other Soviet dictators, who came to power later, millions more died as communism expanded to other nations.

After the February Revolution of 1917 which overthrew the government of Czar Nicholas II, Alexander Kerensky joined the newly formed Russian Provisional Government. On November 7, 1917, his government was overthrown by Vladimir Lenin and the Bolsheviks, which later were called communists in the October Revolution. Russia had a different calendar from the West.

Allen said that the financing of the Bolsheviks was done by a syndicate of international bankers, which included in addition to the Schiff-Warburg clique, Morgan and Rockefeller interests. He wrote that the Morgan organization donated at least $1 million to the communists. Another important financier of the communists was the British Lord Alfred Milner, the organizer and the head of a secret organization called the Round Table. Milner was supported by Lord Rothschild of Britain. Milner spent 21 million rubles in financing the Russian Revolution.

Allen explained that Lord Alfred Milner, Paul, Felix, and Max Warburg represented the respective countries at the Paris Peace Conference at the conclusion of World War I in 1918. These very powerful international bankers who financed the Bolshevik Revolution were the same people who created the Federal Reserve Bank, which was and still is an international banking cartel.

The Rt. Hon. The Viscount Milner

Lord Alfred Milner was born on March 23, 1854 and died on May 13, 1925. He was a wealthy Englishman and a front man for the Rothschilds. He served as paymaster for the international bankers in Petrograd during the Bolshevik Revolution. Milner later headed the secret society known as the Round Table, which was dedicated to bring about a world government where a small group of wealthy financiers would control the planet under a socialist government.

Allen said the following: “In the Bolshevik Revolution we have some of the world’s richest and most powerful men financing a movement which claims its very existence is based on the concept of stripping of their wealth men like the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Schiffs, Warburgs, Morgans, Harrimans, and Milners. But obviously these men have no fear of international communism. It is only logical to assume that if they financed it and do not fear it, it must be because they control it. Can there be any other explanation that makes sense? Remember that for over 150 years it has been standard operating procedure of the Rothschilds and their allies to control both sides of every conflict. You must have an enemy if you’re going to collect from the King…A clique of American financiers not only helped establish communism in Russia, but has striven mightily ever since to keep it alive. Ever since 1918 this clique has been engaged in transferring money and, probably more important, technical information, to the Soviet Union.”

Anthony Sutton in his three history volumes Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development (1971), which was published by the Hoover institution, documented the transfer of technical information to the Soviet Union by the United States. Sutton showed conclusively that virtually everything the Soviet Union processes has been acquired from the West.

The Rockefeller family and communism

John D. Rockefeller 1885.jpg

John Davison Rockefeller was born on July 8, 1839 and died on May 23, 1937.

The founder of the Rockefeller dynasty was an oil industry business magnate. John D. Rockefeller, the founder of the Standard Oil Company, was considered the richest American of all time. His wealth continued to grow enormously as the demand for gasoline increased. The New York Times estimated after John D. Rockefeller retired from business that he had accumulated close to $1,500,000,000 out of the earnings of the Standard Oil trust and out of his other investments.

This was probably the greatest amount of wealth that any private citizen had ever been able to accumulate by his own efforts.”By the time of his death in 1937, Rockefeller’s remaining fortune, largely tied up in permanent family trusts, was estimated at $1.4 billion, while America’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was $92 billion. According to some methods of wealth calculation, Rockefeller’s net worth over the last decades of his life would easily place him as the wealthiest known person in recent history. As a percentage of the United States’ GDP, no other American fortune past or present would even come close.

Gary Allen’s Chapter Six of his book None Dare Call it Conspiracy has the title of “The Rockefellers and the Reds.” He explained that the Rockefeller family has worked with the Rothschilds and their agents since the 1880s. John D. Rockefeller, the founder of the Standard Oil Company, negotiated a rebate on every barrel of oil shipped over the Pennsylvania and Baltimore and Ohio Railroads controlled by Kuhn, Loeb and Company. The rest of the information below is taken from this chapter.

After the Bolshevik Revolution, the Standard Oil of New Jersey bought 50% of the enormous Caucasus oilfields in the Soviet Union even though no private property was allowed to exist. In 1927, the Standard Oil of New York built a refinery in the Soviet Union to help the Bolshevik improve their economy.

The Rockefeller’s Chase Bank later merged with the Warburg’s Manhattan bank to form the present Chase Manhattan Bank. The following year the Chase National Bank sold Soviet Union bonds in the United States. Many patriotic organizations denounced the Rockefeller Bank as “a disgrace to America.” A loan of $75 million to the Communist in the Soviet Union was arranged. The Soviet Union was bankrupt and would have collapsed if it had not being assisted by the Insiders international bankers. Without their intervention, communism would have ended. More than a billion people would not have been enslaved by the communists and more than 100 million people all over the world would not have been assassinated!

Sadly, a similar situation is occurring today with the bloody Castro regime in Cuba which is near bankruptcy. Former president Barack Obama, many in Congress from both political parties, and the globalist elite from the Council of Foreign Relations, Bilderberg Group, and the Trilateral Commission and other allied organizations came to the rescue of the communist regime in the island. Obama recognized Cuba diplomatically in violation of the Helms Burton Law and began illegally dismantling the commercial embargo. These individuals did not want the communist regime in Cuba to disappear and they gave the oppressive regime economic and political concessions in exchange for nothing.

The Rockefeller agent and banker Frank A. Vanderlip, who was the president of the National City Bank of New York, the most powerful of the banks at that time and who also represented the international investment banking house of Kuhn, Loeb & Company, came to the rescue of the Soviet Union. Vanderlip compared Vladimir Lenin to George Washington. He worked together with the Rockefeller public relation agent, Ivy Lee, to sell the idea that the Bolsheviks were “misunderstood idealists” and “kind benefactors of mankind.” Many years later, New York Times reporter, Herbert Matthew, a Council of Foreign Relations member, compared Fidel Castro to George Washington once more. Finally, the Fabian dominated administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt recognized the Soviet Union diplomatically.

The Rockefeller Chase National Bank established the American-Russian Chamber of Commerce in 1922. They promoted trade with the Soviet Union. While the United States spent billions a year on defense, the Rockefellers and their allies promoted the transfer of technology, increased economic assistance, and trade with the communists in the Soviet Union through the Council of Foreign Relations.


Soviet Union dictator Josef Stalin, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill at the Tehran Conference held on November 1943.

During War World II the bloody dictator Josef Stalin paid tribute to the assistance rendered by the United States to the Soviet Union industry before and during the war. Stalin said that about two thirds of or the large industrial enterprise in the Soviet Union had been built with United States help or technical assistance.

37 Lyndon Johnson 3x4.jpg

Lyndon Baines Johnson was born on August 27, 1908 and died on January 22, 1973.

Lyndon Baines Johnson was often referred to as LBJ, served as the 36th President of the United States from 1963 to 1969. He became president after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963.

The transfer of technology by the United States during early days to the Soviet Union has continued until today. President Lyndon Baines Johnson, who had appointed many members of the Council of Foreign Relations to his administration, traded with the Soviet Union materials that he called “non-a strategic,” but in reality had uses direct or indirect for war. While our soldiers, sailors, and pilots were dying in the Vietnam War, President Johnson kept selling materials that were killing Americans in Vietnam.

The procommunist industrialist Cyrus Eaton, who was a secret member of the Council of Foreign Relations and who had started his career as secretary to John D. Rockefeller, promoted trade with the Soviet Union. The Rockefellers and Eaton constructed a $50 million aluminum plant in the Soviet Union even though aluminum is used for jet planes.

Gary Allen wrote the following: “Meanwhile, more than 50,000 Americans have died in Vietnam, many of them killed by weapons which the Rockefellers directly or indirectly supplied to our avowed enemies. Only the technicality of the lack of a formal declaration of war prevents the Rockefellers’ trading in the blood of dead Americans from being actionable as treason.”

Allen found strange that David Rockefeller, who was at the time president of the Chase Manhattan Bank and Chairman of the Board of the Council of Foreign Relations, took a vacation in the Soviet Union in October 1964. A few days after Rockefeller return to the United States, Nikita Khrushchev was fired. Allen found it very strange! He speculates and asked, “Did David Rockefeller journey to the Soviet Union was to fire an employee?”

Allen wrote the following: “For five decades the communists have based the propaganda on the theme that they were going to destroy the Rockefellers and the other super-rich. Yet we find that for five decades the Rockefellers have been involved in building the strength of the Soviets. We are supposed to believe that those international cartelists do this because they are foolish or greedy. Does this make sense?”

For many years David Rockefeller ran the financial end of the Rockefeller dynasty and Nelson Rockefeller ran the politics. Allen explained that President Richard Nixon was always under the Nelson Rockefeller orbit. When Nixon was elected president in 1968, he hired as Attorney General John Mitchell, who was the personal lawyer of Nelson Rockefeller. President Nixon also hired Henry Kissinger, who had been working for the Rockefeller family for many years and who at the time was a paid employee of the Council of Foreign Relations.

Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller was born on July 8, 1908 and died on January 26, 1979. He served as Vice President under President Gerald Ford from 1974 to 1977. Previously, Rockefeller served as Governor of New York.


Many international bankers and their allies in the past and currently have helped communist regimes come to power and stay in power. These powerful individuals are members of the globalist elite who want a planetary government under the United Nations but controlled by them. If these rich globalists were to succeed in establishing a global one world government, America would lose its freedom, sovereignty, wealth, Constitution, courts, currency, and army.
