Obama Gives Finger To Country—Takes $400K From Wall Street
Acceptance is the first step to recovery ..
““I love my previous life. I had so many things going. This is more work than in my previous life,” Trump said. “I thought it would be easier. I thought it was more of a … I’m a details-oriented person. I think you’d say that, but I do miss my old life. I like to work so that’s not a problem but this is actually more work.””
Trump now agrees with the majority of Americans: He wasn’t ready to be president
“I thought it would be easier,” Trump said of the presidency.
“One of the dominant ideas which governs thinking since the 18th century is the idea that we can make everything to our pleasure; that we can design social institutions in their working. Now, that is basically mistaken. Social institutions have never been designed and do much more than we know. They have grown up by selection of the successful, without people frequently knowing why it is successful.” – Hayek

“So what happens is that if your value system collapses, then all you’re left with is negative emotion, and that is not a good thing. Well, so Nietzsche would say, well why do people flee into the arms of totalitarians from the specter of nihilism? It’s because totalitarian certainty, even though it involves slavery and the sacrifice of reason and intellect, totalitarian certainty might be preferable to nihilistic chaos. Well, it’s a big problem.”
“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
Tell me again how Obama didn’t sell the American people out to the big banks and didn’t use his Presidency to personally enrich himself .. This is from the Huffington Post, not from Breitbart ..
“Former President Barack Obama will receive $400,000 to speak at a health care conference organized by the Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald.”
“Obama refused to prosecute the rampant fraud behind the 2008 Wall Street collapse, despite inking multibillion-dollar settlement after multibillion-dollar settlement with major firms over misconduct ranging from foreclosure fraud to rigging energy markets to tax evasion. In some cases, big banks even pleaded guilty to felonies, but Obama’s Justice Department allowed actual human bankers to ride into the sunset. Early in his presidency, Obama vowed to spend up to $100 billion to help struggling families avert foreclosure. Instead, the administration converted the relief plan into a slush fund for big banks, as top traders at bailed-out firms were allowed to collect six-figure bonuses on the taxpayers’ dime.”
“Nothing forced Obama to govern this way. Had he truly believed that prosecuting bankers for obvious criminal fraud would cause an economic collapse, Obama would, presumably, have tried to radically reshape the financial sector. He did not. His administration’s finance-friendly policies damaged the economic recovery and generated a new cohort of Trump voters. As Nate Cohn of The New York Times has demonstrated, nearly one-fourth of Obama’s white working-class supporters in 2012 flipped for Trump in 2016. Racism and misogyny were surely part of Trump’s appeal, but not all two-time Obama voters turned to Trump out of bigotry alone.”
“Obama isn’t running for office again, but his sellout sends even uglier signals to the electorate.”
