Obama LINKED to More Corruption and Payola
Obama was and remains a crook, perhaps the most crooked president in American history.
He was the very “smooth criminal” Michael Jackson sang about. And if anybody was bought and paid for, it was Barack Obama.
From the formulation of his phony past, to the notion of “greatness” he was said to project, the Left contrived the man. They conjured him up, as if from some Frankensteinian lab. He was created to do their bidding.
And once the Left built its monster, they had to finance him.
So a failed community organizer and Junior Senator owed a lot of favors. The establishment Democrats had temporarily jettisoned “the chosen one”, Hillary Clinton, as they dreamed bigger. But now the newly minted president would have to pay.
We witnessed the beginning of payback with the green energy extortion. Had any private-sector business done in green energy what Obama did, that executive would be in Club Fed on a ten-year bid. That’s prison, white people. But when you’re president Obama, you can get away with such larceny.
We find yet another such story.
As the Daily Signal reports,
Barack Obama’s presidential campaign advertising agency received nearly $60 million in federal contracts after he took office, according to an analysis by The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group.
The gravy train for the Washington, D.C.-based ad agency, GMMB, hasn’t slowed since President Donald Trump’s inauguration, the analysis found. The liberal Democratic communications powerhouse was awarded nearly $15 million in a new contract in June, five months after Trump entered the Oval Office.
GMMB received a total of $58.4 million in federal contracts from 2009 to 2017, according to USASpending, which tracks federal spending through contracts, grants, loans and other forms. GMMB’s annual revenue is an estimated $32.6 million, according to D&B Hoovers, a private business research and rating firm.
For those wondering why Obama worked so hard on ObamaCare?
According to campaign finance records, among all the candidates in both political parties, Obama was the No. 2 recipient of donations from the health care industry, having raised about $2.2 million. No. 1 was Hillary Clinton, the true king of pay-to-play.
Lucky for us Hillary Clinton got blocked from the White House. But check out this scheme that Obama set up with the financial industry. As the New York Post reports, Obama set up payments for anti-Trumpers with the Wall Street settlements:
The Obama administration’s massive shakedown of Big Banks over the mortgage crisis included unprecedented back-door funding for dozens of Democratic activist groups who were not even victims of the crisis.
At least three liberal nonprofit organizations the Justice Department approved to receive funds from multibillion-dollar mortgage settlements were instrumental in killing the ObamaCare repeal bill and are now lobbying against GOP tax reform, as well as efforts to rein in illegal immigration.
An estimated $640 million has been diverted into what critics say is an improper, if not unconstitutional, “slush fund” fed from government settlements with JPMorgan Chase and Co., Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp., according to congressional sources.
The payola is potentially earmarked for third-party interest groups approved by the Justice Department and HUD without requiring any proof of how the funds will be spent. Many of the recipients so far are radical leftist organizations who solicited the settlement cash from the administration even though they were not parties to the lawsuits, records show.
There is truly no telling what we will find, if we dig into the payola that occurred during the Era of Obama.
I hasten to add that he’s not the only president who has done such. However, I’m willing to bet, he’s the most egregious.
Ever heard of anybody suing without a plaintiff?
That’s what Obama’s Department of Justice did.
Newly uncovered internal memos reveal the Obama administration knowingly exaggerated charges of racial discrimination in probes of Ally Bank and other defendants in the $900 billion car-lending business as part of a “racial justice” campaign that’s looking more like a massive government extortion and shakedown operation.
So far, Obama’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has reached more than $220 million in settlements with several auto lenders since the agency launched its anti-discrimination crusade against the industry in 2013. Several other banks are under active investigation.
That’s despite the fact that the CFPB had no actual complaints of racial discrimination — it was all just based on half-baked statistics.
America can finally get back on the right track. Because, now that we have a rich white Republican president who can’t be bought.
