Armand Hammer, Soviet Crony Capitalist Posted By: njdittos 1/27/2013 7:39:04 AM Michelle-Antoinette.com, by njdittos Original Article
The croniest of crony capitalists. The self-created protagonist of one of the strangest, most sinister sagas in twentieth century politics and business. A lifelong master of subterfuge, lies and fraud, Hammer portrayed himself as a friend of kings and mankind in general, the essential traits of a Marxist overlord who loves the faceless masses [for the far-reaching power they can provide him) and loathes people. By all objective accounts a murderous opportunist with an insatiable drive for power and influence. Ultimately, he was a failure, dying in deep debt, the scary facts of his thoroughly corrupt, plundering life laid bare.
