BOMBSHELL (sort of) Henry Paulson Gets Evicted…..
That fella up above there is a guy called Henry Paulson, Jr. , but his friends call him Hank, so I’ll call him Hank. He’s the key guy that put together the plan to write the banks and Wall Street Wizards a blank check for $750 billion of your dollars way back in 2008.
He’s widely viewed as THE ULTIMATE WALL STREET GUY if there ever was one. Now it is very clear that if Hank and the other big shots in charge hadn’t done something in 2008, the world economy would have gone careening off a cliff. I’m pretty sure history will reveal just how close we all were to a major catastrophe…but the real problem we’re all having now is the fact that all the Wall Streeters have profited GINORMOUSLY while the American people are continuing to suffer like never before.
When you watch all the news of this incredibly successful guy, you cannot imagine that he has any real connection to the suffering of the American people..he’s just too far removed from it….right? I mean he’s been living up there in the rarefied air that you breathe in when you’re part of the Goldman Sachs cartel.
But here’s a very interesting and potentially humanizing thing. According to Wikipedia:
Here’s another thing, right around this time, a fella by the name of Henry Paulson was being evicted from a property down in sunny Palm Beach, Florida. Now Wikipedia also shows that Paulson, (Hank that is) was born in Palm Beach so it seems pretty likely that defendant in the lawsuit reflected below was none other than Hank Paulson’s father. Hard to tell whether this was Henry Paulson senior’s home but there was actually another judgment entered sometime later related to the same property.
Digging a little deeper, it also appears that an estate was opened up for Henry Paulson in 1982…and here’s what’s interesting…it was a Summary Administration that appears to have been opened up by creditors. Wikipedia says Hank Paulson became a partner at Goldman Sachs in 1982 while creditors opened a Summary Administration for Henry Paulson, Sr. that same year. I just wonder what was going on here. Did Paulson Sr. die broke and penniless while Jr. was on the trajectory straight up on his way to making untold wealth and prestige? For me the interesting thing is it sort of humanizes a very imperial and distant figure. I wonder how these Masters of the Financial Universe tick…what they’re thinking and where they’re coming from. This adds a whole new layer and dimension to my thinking about how Hank Paulson….one of the most powerful men in the world…..thinks and operates….
