Yes, he is finished playing golf with billionaire buddies, traveling to private islands where his family romped with the super rich internationalists, and now he is back home, collecting double the bribes, no, triple the bribes given to Bush Jr. This farce of ‘speeches’ was what got Hillary in trouble, it is pure bribery. Naturally, the liberals think this is OK. Sad, isn’t it?
President Barack Obama has inked a deal that will bank him $400,000 to speak to a Wall Street firm, placing him on the money train that caused his would-be successor Hillary Clinton problems in her presidential campaign.
Yes, the great hero of the left is actually a Bilderberg gangster who is funded by the richest bankers. Thanks.
The speaking fee, for a health care conference being run by Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald LP, equals the salary Obama earned for an entire year as president.
This is insanity. And of course, the ‘reforms’ by Obama are very expensive. Under him, the cost of medicines shot upwards as these were exploited as tools to make excess profits. Drugs that cost $15 a pill went to $300 a pill, in a rape of the US taxpayers. Thank you, Obama.
It also puts him on the payroll of an industry he previously derided as being comprised of ‘fat cats,’ after stressing elements of his own biography like his time as a community organizer in Chicago.
He was always best buddy to these gangsters.
“I did not run for office to be helping out a bunch of fat cat bankers on Wall Street,” Obama said in 2009, while the country was still in the grip of a financial crisis that many blame in part on Wall Street’s own freewheeling practices.
He was lying, of course.
Obama is following in the path of several other recent presidents who found they were able to easily monetize the experiences they gained in the world’s most powerful elected position.
It began with Reagan. I demanded he be arrested when he came back with what is still the biggest single bribe, from Japan. We were told, this had nothing to do with the gigantic trade deficit we ran with Japan back then and since then.
Politico reported two years ago that George W. Bush commands up to $175,000 a speech, delivering in excess of 200 paid speeches.
At least Obama can read a speech. Bush Jr. can’t even do that. Still, he collected bribes.
Hillary Clinton took heat throughout her primary battle against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for her own paid speeches, which included talks to Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street firms.
Listening to Hillary make a speech is pure audio torture. She speaks in this flat, nasty voice that grates on my ears. I feel it is great punishment for all the rich bastards giving her bribes, to have to also sit and listen to her. Still, a bribe is a bribe.
