If You Ignore Corruption Like Obama, You Aren’t a Witness- You Are An Accomplice
Back in 2007-2008, Senator Barack Obama seemingly came out of nowhere. I was traveling the country and eventually landed in New Orleans. Nobody had ever heard of this guy. It was no different in the south. So how did a guy boasting a vast two years worth of Senatorial experience become President? More precisely, who bankrolled him?
Shit doesn’t just happen.
Obama’s ties to the elite and to bankers are intricate and extensive. I personally have spent hundreds of hours researching Obama and his ties to the financial industry. Imagine an entire elite strata of thieving bankers issuing, buying, reselling, mis labeling, packaging trillions of dollars worth of toxic commercial and home loans. Committing the greatest fraud ever recorded in American history- and ripping off the taxpayers. You had to be scared shitless in 2007. The whole world was imploding. If you were one of the hundreds of thousands of fraudulent bankers- it was time to buy a patsy.
I cut this excerpt out of Open Secrets for 2008. I included McCain’s donors.
Even though these donors direct more money to the candidates than anyone else, disclosure can be spotty, with Obama and McCain posting bundlers by ranges, indicated in this chart with the “max” and “min” columns, and with the top ranges being simply “$500,000 or more.” Together, 536 elites have directed at least $75,750,000 to McCain, and 558 have gathered at least $76,250,000 for Obama.
Over 40% of each candidates donors are bankers (1) and lawyers (2). Elite.
Now here is the proof. Look at how much money came pouring into Obama’s campaign from the securities industry.
The same thing happens when you open the drop window and plug in commercial banks. Just how does a DEMOCRAT raise more money than a REPUBLICAN from bankers? Republican candidates always get big business and banks backing them.
Weird huh? Do you think the same thing is happening in the 2012 election cycle? Nope. In fact the REPUBLICAN Romney is way ahead of Obama in terms of campaign contributions from bankers. Just open the 2012 stats. So was 2008 an aberration? No. I believe the bankers sought out and found a flaming liberal from Illinois that they could co-opt and buy. A guy with such a huge ego that he would sell his soul to become President. And that folks- is exactly what happened.
Your bought and paid for President. Instead of becoming the nation’s top cop- he became a criminal accomplice. This is not stupidity. Obama is anything but stupid. This was intentional and remains so.
So it’s no secret that Obama lied to and squeezed the NY Attorney General’s nuts to get him to sign off on the Too Big To Fail bank mortgage settlement. That 25 billion dollar settlement literally got banks off the hook for trillions in fraudulent foreclosures. Forging and fraud are still felonies.
One of the greatest banker crooks of the 2007 era was a guy named James A Johnson. Most folks don’t even know his name. He is a criminal piece of garbage, who like Angelo Mozilo, has managed to stay out of jail. I stumbled across him years ago. Johnson sits on the board of Goldman Sachs- (I know, big shocker!) and Target. He used to work at Fannie Mae where he lied about profits and inflated his salary. First I will link naked capitalism’s piece about this guy. If you want to open up the link at the bottom of the article- Sequoia has an excellent letter that outlines the fraudulent activities of this piece of garbage. I couldn’t do it any better than they did in their letter to share holders. http://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2012/04/sequoia-fund-manager-campaigns-against-goldman-board-member-former-fannie-ceo-jim-johnson.html
Oh yea. One last thing. James A Johnson is a Democrat and a big buddy of Obama’s. In fact, he is a top bundler just like that other thieving banker, Jon Corzine. More here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_A._Johnson_%28politics%29
Is this starting to make sense to you? Like I said, shit doesn’t just happen.
