Bought and Paid For: The Unholy Alliance Between Barack Obama and Wall Street

The Creature from Johnny's Half Shell

Johnny's Half Shell is a popular gourmet restaurant located in Washington, DC. In June 2007, representatives of the Financial elite from New York were called to gather there for a secret meeting. It was a small affair, held in a private room over an expensive dinner, with an exclusive guest list. The purpose of the meeting: an employment interview. Present at the meeting were top executives Dick Fuld (Lehman Brothers), Greg Flemming (Merrill Lynch), Larry Fink (BlackRock), Paul Volcker (Former Fed Chair), Gary Cohn (Goldman Sachs), and Warren Spector (Bear Sterns). The subject of the introduction and interview, Barack Obama, was also present. The job he was seeking: President of the United States of America.

Some might ask why would the "Wall St" people back a Democrat? Isn't big business in bed with the Republicans, and don't the Democrats look out for the little guy? Well, that's just so much false left/right propaganda. Obama has been a much greater friend to Wall St. than the Republicans, and it doesn't hurt that these high-level CEOs and Executives are all hard-core limousine liberals; put simply, they are Democrats. And it's not a surprise that their "ideology" conveniently dove-tails right into their business profits. What these Wall St. Banksters and Obama know is this: big government means big debt. They are partners. Debt is the drug, the Banksters are the pushers, and politicians are the drug addicts. Obama wants to spend money, and he doesn't care how high the fees are or how much debt accumulates. The Banksters push the debt, underwrite the debt, resell the debt, package the debt, make markets out of debt, and advise on how to hide the debt with accounting tricks. Ask Orange County about it. Or Greece. Companies such as Goldman Sachs were at the center of those spectacular collapses, driven by debt and accounting fraud.

Obama gives speeches about the "Fat Cats" and Wall St. excesses. Simultaneously, he has a party and a good laugh with those same people. The jokes on you; the taxpayer, the saver, the producer, the consumer, and the future generations of Americans saddled with debt and a worthless currency.
