MEGABUCKS: Obama Becomes Paid Evangelist For Fat Cat Oil Companies And Wall Street Robber Barons • Now The End Begins

Obama is coming to Wall Street less than a year after leaving the White House, following a path that’s well trod and well paid. While he can’t run for president, he continues to be an influential voice in a party torn between celebrating and vilifying corporate power. His new work with banks might suggest which side of the debate he’ll be on and disappoint anyone expecting him to avoid a trap that snared Clinton.

Hillary Clinton says she made a mistake when she gave speeches on Wall Street after leaving government. Taking money from banks, she writes in her new memoir, created the impression she was in their pocket. Her old boss doesn’t seem to share her concern.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Remember President Obama, and how he used to rail against things like “crony capitalism” and “wall street influence”? Less than a year after leaving office, Obama is now firmly in the paid pockets of any and all Wall Street companies that will have him. His fee to speak is now $400,000 per, and there is no shortage of Wall Street fat cats wanting his services, dubious as they are. Isn’t it amazing how many Democrats are super-rich, and pass laws favoring the super rich? Yet they want me and you to live under a Socialist system while they roll in piles of capitalist cash like Scrooge McDuck

Last month, just before her book “What Happened” was published, Barack Obama spoke in New York to clients of Northern Trust Corp. for about $400,000, a person familiar with his appearance said. Last week, he reminisced about the White House for Carlyle Group LP, one of the world’s biggest private equity firms, according to two people who were there. Next week, he’ll give a keynote speech at investment bank Cantor Fitzgerald LP’s health-care conference.

Obama is coming to Wall Street less than a year after leaving the White House, following a path that’s well trod and well paid. While he can’t run for president, he continues to be an influential voice in a party torn between celebrating and vilifying corporate power. His new work with banks might suggest which side of the debate he’ll be on and disappoint anyone expecting him to avoid a trap that snared Clinton. Or, as some of his executive friends see it, he’s just a private citizen giving a few paid speeches to other successful people while writing his next book.

Tucker: Obama taking $400K from Wall Street is indefensible

“He was the president of the entire United States — financial services are under that umbrella,” said former UBS Group AG executive Robert Wolf, an early supporter who joined the Obama Foundation board this year. “He doesn’t look at Wall Street like, ‘Oh, these are individuals who don’t want the best for the country.’ He doesn’t stereotype.”

Since leaving office, Obama has delivered public and private speeches that are “true to his values,” Kevin Lewis, a spokesman for the former president, said in an email. “His paid speeches in part have allowed President Obama to contribute $2 million to Chicago programs offering job training and employment opportunities to low-income youth.”

Obama’s relationship with Wall Street hasn’t always been good. Bankers still boil over with rage about him, wincing over his 2009 line about fat cats as if the wounds were fresh. But his Justice Department prosecuted no major bankers for their roles in the financial crisis, and he resisted calls to break up the biggest banks, signing a regulatory overhaul that annoyed them with new rules but didn’t stop them from pulling in record profits.

The brokerage and investment bank Cantor Fitzgerald isn’t one of those giants. S&P Global Ratings announced this year that the New York-based firm’s debt grades could be cut to junk. Cantor’s investment banking division is run by health-care specialist Sage Kelly, who left Jefferies Group after divorce-case accusations became salacious tabloid fodder in 2014. His ex-wife later apologized for the storm caused by the claims, which he had denied.

Obama’s Wall Street speeches generate big pay day:

When Obama was president he railed against Wall Street, but now that he’s a private citizen he grabbing all the ill-gotten loot from Wall Street that he can stuff in his pockets.

Cantor Chief Executive Officer Howard Lutnick, whose firm lost more than 600 people in the Sept. 11 attacks, said the former president will make remarks and take questions. The three-day conference for current and prospective clients begins Sept. 25. Obama will be paid about $400,000, according to a person familiar with the arrangement.

“Everybody would like to come,” Lutnick said. “Hopefully, we will really talk about the Affordable Care Act in interesting and nuanced ways, which I think is really cool.”

Obama’s appearance at the Carlyle conference in Washington was previously unreported.

The private equity giant has enjoyed some of the best political connections in the world, with executives and advisers who have included former presidents, prime ministers and cabinet secretaries. Obama discussed his life and the decisions he made in the White House, the people who heard him said. A spokesman for the firm wouldn’t comment.

The ex-president has been busy. His foundation is raising money for a library in Chicago, and he and his wife signed a book deal with Penguin Random House after an auction that went above $60 million, according to the Financial Times. He spoke about food in Milan, democracy in Jakarta and himself at an A&E Television Networks event in New York. He vacationed in California and Hawaii and on Richard Branson’s Necker Island with its billionaire owner.

Obama has picked private equity, hedge fund, venture capital and banking veterans to oversee his foundation, and an alumnus of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. to advise him on investments.

President Obama Announces The Obama Foundation Summit:

Remember the Clinton Foundation, and how it was going to “change the world“. As it turned out, the only thing the Clinton Foundation did was make the Clintons richer. Now Obama is starting his own foundation to “change the world”. Hmm…looks like we won’t be running low on Democrat financial scandals any time soon.

Northern Trust is a bank that specializes in wealth management for rich families and services for big funds. The event had gone unreported, but a program accessible on the firm’s website lists Obama alongside executives from Microsoft Corp., IBM and Michael Bloomberg, majority owner of Bloomberg LP.

Northern Trust, based in Chicago, gave Obama a discount on a $1.32 million loan for a mansion in that city in 2005, after he was elected to the Senate, the Washington Post reported. The rate was changed to account for an offer from another lender, a spokesman for Obama said three years later. Doug Holt, a spokesman for Northern Trust, wouldn’t comment for this story.

Obama is getting advice on investments from Robbie Robinson, who’s on leave from BDT & Co., according to a person familiar with the arrangement. That Chicago-based firm works with wealthy families and is run by Byron Trott. Both bankers worked for Goldman Sachs.

Obama has known executives there for more than a decade. He spoke at the 2006 Goldman Sachs partners’ meeting in Chicago. Then a senator, he appeared between Hank Paulson and Warren Buffett in the Fairmont hotel’s Imperial Ballroom, an event program shows.

Both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump blasted Clinton for her lucrative Goldman Sachs speeches, and the issue is still raw. Sanders and fellow Senator Elizabeth Warren have tried to pry the Democratic Party away from its coziness with Wall Street. If Obama is hoping the party will be a big tent with room for corporate giants, they may stand in his way.

Obama’s donor friends tend to mention the same reason when they defend his Wall Street speeches, saying he’s no longer president and not running for office. Morgan Stanley Vice Chairman Tom Nides is one of them.

“I love Barack Obama, and if someone is willing to pay him to give a speech, God bless America,” said Nides, a deputy secretary of state under Clinton in Obama’s administration.

But Jeff Hauser, who studies political corruption as head of the Revolving Door Project in Washington, said Obama should play by the same rules as other politicians because of his ongoing work with the Democratic Party.

“He’s continuing to exercise the authority,” Hauser said, citing Obama’s support for the party’s redistricting committee and the push he gave Tom Perez in the race to head the Democratic National Committee. If he wants to play a role, “he ought to forgo a few hundred thousand here and maybe a half-million there.”

Few leaders have left the top of the U.S. government recently and resisted the lure of corporate money. Former Vice President Al Gore is a director at Apple Inc. and a senior partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the venture capital firm whose chairman, John Doerr, is on the Obama Foundation’s board. Dan Quayle, another ex-vice president, has spent almost two decades with private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management LP. Trump’s White House has lost officials so quickly that Sean Spicer has already made arrangements to speak to a financial firm this year.

“Not everyone’s going to be a Jimmy Carter, who does purely good works after he gets out,” said Sean Coffey, a Democratic donor who chairs the complex litigation group at corporate law firm Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP. Obama is used to being criticized, the attorney added. “I don’t think getting any grief for doing this is going to bother him at all.” source

Mega-Rich Pastor Joel Osteen Orders Doors Of Lakewood Church Shut To Public At Height Of Hurricane Harvey • Now The End Begins

 

Televangelist Joel Osteen canceled services at his Houston megachurch Sunday and just reopened his doors today — despite the fact that thousands of flooded-out residents were desperately seeking shelter. The perpetually smiling pastor told followers on Twitter on Monday to lean on their faith.  “Jesus promises us peace that passes understanding,” he wrote. “That’s peace when it doesn’t make sense.”

Televangelist Joel Osteen canceled services at his Houston megachurch Sunday and just reopened his doors today — despite the fact that thousands of flooded-out residents were desperately seeking shelter.

“And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:3 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: With all the tens of millions of dollars his followers give Lakewood Church every year, and because of it’s massive sports stadium size, it would be only natural to think that Joel Osteen would order his huge building to be a receiving zone for the many thousands of displaced people in Hurricane Harvey. Lakewood Church has 16,000 seats in it’s main arena. So why did Osteen order the doors to his millionaires monastery shut to the public? That’s what I would like to know. After a public outcry, he begrudgedly opened the church to the public late today. But please, don’t stop sending in your money to fund his lavish lifestyle, he counts on suckers like you to pay his bills.

The perpetually smiling pastor told followers on Twitter on Monday to lean on their faith.  “Jesus promises us peace that passes understanding,” he wrote. “That’s peace when it doesn’t make sense.”

But Osteen’s comforting words didn’t sit well with critics, who want to know why the doors to his 16,800-seat arena at his Lakewood Church near downtown Houston are closed.

Joel Osteen opens Mega-church to flood victims amid criticism

“You have taken so much money away from your people to live like a king,” entertainment publicist Danny Deraney blasted. “It’s the least you could do.”

Washington, DC-based writer Charles Clymer tweeted pictures of Lakewood Church, which did not appear to be damaged by floods.

“It doesn’t make sense why you’re not opening up your mega church to house Houston citizens, help me understand that. Jesus,” according to Florida-based writer Emily Timbol.

While the church and its arena have not suffered any flood damage yet, ministry spokesman Donald Iloff said their property is inaccessible because of surrounding waters.

And it makes no sense to open church doors when the city and county are already treating thousands of flood victims at the nearby George R. Brown Convention Center, according to Iloff.

“It has everything inside there — medicine, doctors, places to sleep,” Iloff said of the convention center. “It’s amazing what they’re doing there to make people comfortable.” source

Pope Francis Now Says Rights For Muslim Migrants More Important Than A Country’s National Security • Now The End Begins

Ignoring critics who say his calls are unrealistic and naive, Pope Francis insisted in the new message that border guards must be trained to protect migrants and that each new arrival, regardless of legal status, must be guaranteed access to basic services beyond health care. That extends to guaranteeing access to consulates, the justice system and the ability to open a bank account and survive financially, he said.

Pope Francis on Monday urged countries to greatly improve their welcome to migrants and stop collective expulsions, saying migrants’ dignity and right to protection trumps national security concerns.

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:4,5 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Consider the incredible contradictions of Pope Francis. He preaches against gun ownership, yet is surrounded by gun-toting bodyguards every where he goes. He preaches against border walls, yet lives in a gilded mansion that’s ringed by a massive border wall. He preaches that everyone should take in Muslim migrants, yet the Vatican with its limitless billions has only taken in 3 refugee families. Today, the pope told his followers that the “rights” of illegal Muslim migrants trump any nation’s national security policy. 

Pope Francis’ politically pointed message was made in view of the Catholic Church’s 2018 World Refugee Day, celebrated Jan. 14. It comes amid mounting anti-immigrant sentiment in Europe and beyond following waves of migrant arrivals and Islamic extremist attacks.

In the message, Francis demanded governments welcome, protect, promote and integrate migrants, saying Jesus’ message of love is rooted in welcoming the “rejected strangers of every age.”

Pope Francis releases message for World Day of Migrants and Refugees:

He demanded a simplified process of granting humanitarian and temporary visas and rejected arbitrary and collective expulsions as “unsuitable.” He said the principle of ensuring each person’s dignity “obliges us to always prioritize personal safety over national security.”

Francis has made refugees a priority of his pontificate, making his first trip outside Rome in 2013 to the island of Lampedusa, ground zero in Europe’s migration crisis. He has repeatedly spoken out for migrants’ rights, demanded countries build “bridges not walls,” and personally brought a dozen Syrian refugees back to Rome with him when he visited a Greek refugee camp in 2016.

Ignoring critics who say his calls are unrealistic and naive, Francis insisted in the new message that border guards must be trained to protect migrants and that each new arrival, regardless of legal status, must be guaranteed access to basic services beyond health care.

That extends to guaranteeing access to consulates, the justice system and the ability to open a bank account and survive financially, he said. Unaccompanied minors, he said, require even greater protection, including guaranteeing them citizenship and access to schooling, as well as foster programs rather than detention centers.

He called for policies that support family reunification, employment opportunities and accelerated citizenship procedures to improve migrants’ abilities to integrate.

His call was immediately rejected by the leader of Italy’s anti-immigrant Northern League party, which has opposed government proposals to change Italy’s law to accelerate citizenship for children born in Italy to non-Italians.

“If you want to do it in the Vatican, go ahead,” Matteo Salvini wrote on Facebook. “But as a Catholic, I don’t think Italy can welcome and support the whole world.” source

Watch And Listen As Billy Graham In His Own Words Shows Steady Slide Into Laodicean Apostasy • Now The End Begins

If Billy Graham would have been preaching the true gospel of the grace of God, Paul’s gospel for the Church Age, he would not have doubted if Hell was a real place or not. He would have looked at his friend, Pope John Paul II, as a lost sinner in need of a Saviour, and pleaded with him to become born again. But there is no record of any kind that he ever spoke those words to the pope.

If Billy Graham would have been preaching the true gospel of the grace of God, Paul’s gospel for the Church Age, he would not have doubted if Hell was a real place or not

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first…” 2 Thessalonians 2:3a (KJV)

Christians get mad when you point out that evangelist Billy Graham was really a wolf in sheep’s clothing who spent more than half of his ministry defending and promoting the Pope, and sending the “converts” from his rallies to Catholic churches.

Did you know that Billy Graham believed and taught that you could be saved and not know it? That the Body of Christ will include non-Christians from other religions as well as pagans? How about the time he told Larry King on CNN that he feels absolutely comfortable worshipping in a Mormon church? Now before you go and stroke out over what I’m telling you, take a moment to watch the video below and hear all of that and more from Billy’s own lips, at a time when he was still well in possession of all his mental faculties.

Billy Graham in his own words:

So…you don’t believe that Billy Graham said these things? Then click on this video and watch for yourself. Don’t have the guts to watch it? Then don’t leave a comment.

Here are some more notable and heretical statements from the “world’s greatest evangelist:

  • Billy Denies A Literal, Fiery Hell: “…I think people have a hard time believing God is going to allow people to burn in literal fire forever. I think the fire that is mentioned in the Bible is a burning thirst for God that can never be quenched.” The Orlando Sentinel for April 10, 1983
  • Billy Agrees With Infant Baptism: “I do believe that something happens at the baptism of an infant… we cannot fully understand the mysteries of God, but I believe that a miracle can happen in these children so that they are regenerated, that is, MADE CHRISTIAN, THROUGH INFANT BAPTISM.” Interview with the Lutheran Standard in October 1967
  • Billy On His Love For The Vatican: “When I was at the Vatican I spoke at a vesper service at the North American College, which is a seminary for students from North America. I understand I was the first Protestant to speak there. It was a very inspirational and Christocentric service, with much contemporary music.” Christianity Today 1981
  • Billy Identifies More As A Catholic Than Protestant: “I find myself closer to Catholics than the radical Protestants. I think the Roman Catholic Church today is going through a second Reformation” Philadelphia Evening Bulletin 24 May, 1966
  • Billy Says Pope John Paul II His Spiritual Leader: “I think the American people are looking for a leader, a moral and spiritual leader that believes something. And the Pope does. … Thank God, I’ve got somebody to quote now with some real authority.” Phil Donahue Show October 11, 1979
  • Billy Promotes Islam: “I think Islam is misunderstood, too, because Mohammed had a great respect for Jesus. He called Jesus the greatest of the prophets except himself…Islam is much more like Christianity than we think we are”. See video interview above

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:14-16 (KJV)

Please note that all these quotes were uttered 1983 or earlier, at a time when Graham was still good health, physically strong and mentally aware. I gave you 5 random quotes, but easily could have given you 50 more, 100 more, showing his lukewarm, Laodicean theology and manner of compromising preaching. People will get mad and write to me with statements like “How DARE you speak against Billy Graham?? I got SAVED at one of his rallies”. So? You can find a ten dollar bill on the sidewalk without thinking it’s a bank, right? If you found a diamond ring in a trash dumpster, would you call it a jewelry store? No, you would not. Can people get saved with lukewarm preaching? Yes, they can. But without the true gospel, undiluted and powerful, it is nearly impossible for them to grow in a walk with the Lord.

The following is from a transcript of an appearance by Billy Graham on Robert Schuller’s “Hour of Power,” program #1426 entitled Say “Yes” To Possibility Thinking, which was originally broadcast May 31, 1997:

Schuller: Tell me, what do you think is the future of Christianity?

Graham: Well, Christianity and being a true believer–you know, I think there’s the Body of Christ. This comes from all the Christian groups around the world, outside the Christian groups. I think everybody that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they’re conscious of it or not, they’re members of the Body of Christ. And I don’t think that we’re going to see a great sweeping revival, that will turn the whole world to Christ at any time. I think James answered that, the Apostle James in the first council in Jerusalem, when he said that God’s purpose for this age is to call out a people for His name.

And that’s what God is doing today, He’s calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ because they’ve been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don’t have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think that they are saved, and that they’re going to be with us in heaven.

Schuller: What, what I hear you saying that it’s possible for Jesus Christ to come into human hearts and soul and life, even if they’ve been born in darkness and have never had exposure to the Bible. Is that a correct interpretation of what you’re saying?

Graham: Yes, it is, because I believe that. I’ve met people in various parts of the world in tribal situations, that they have never seen a Bible or heard about a Bible, and never heard of Jesus, but they’ve believed in their hearts that there was a God, and they’ve tried to live a life that was quite apart from the surrounding community in which they lived.

Schuller: I’m so thrilled to hear you say this. There’s a wideness in God’s mercy.

Graham: There is.

When I got saved in 1991, on my knees alone in my room at midnight with a King James Bible opened to John 3:16, there was no preaching at all. I had no Christians friends, had never set foot in a non-Catholic church, it was just me and the Lord and I got saved. But without biblical preaching I soon found myself following the perverted teachings of another false teacher, Harold Camping, and I didn’t break free from it until I met some Bible believers a few years later who told me the Truth.

If Billy Graham would have been preaching the true gospel of the grace of God, Paul’s gospel for the Church Age, he would not have doubted if Hell was a real place or not. He would have looked at his friend, Pope John Paul II, as a lost sinner in need of a Saviour, and pleaded with him to become born again. But there is no record of any kind that he ever spoke those words to the pope.

Back in 2000, Billy gave an interview where he seemed to have little to no assurance of his salvation. Well, after nearly 50 years of “enjoying” Catholic doctrine and preaching it’s not surprising to me at all. The Vatican teaches that believers “can not know if they are going to heaven when they die”.

Franklin Graham continues his father’s defense and promotion of the Catholic Church:

Franklin Graham, son of the great Catholic compromiser, Billy Graham, wants the Roman Catholic Church to “remain unmovable” on biblical teachings.

“I appreciate the Catholic Church remaining very strong on moral issues through the years, and I pray they will be immovable on teachings of the Bible,” he posted on Facebook recently. source

So there you have it, Franklin wants the Catholic Church to “remain unmovable” on their 1,700 years of false teachings, praying to Mary, the idolatry of the Mass and distortion of Bible doctrine. Well, what can I say? Like father, like son.

Billy Graham was a Freemason:

In a Jan. 2, 2000 Fox News interview, Tony Snow asked Billy Graham: “When you get to Heaven, who’s going to speak first, you or God? Graham replied: “When I get there, I’m sure that Jesus is going to say that he will welcome me. But I think that he’s going to say: ‘Well done, our good and faithful servant.’ Or he may say: ‘You’re in the wrong place’.” SNOW: “You really worry that you may be told you’re in the wrong place? GRAHAM: Yes, because I have not – I’m not a righteous man. People put me up on a pedestal that I don’t belong in my personal life. And they think that I’m better than I am. I’m not the good man that people think I am. Newspapers and magazines and television have made me out to be a saint. I’m not. I’m not a Mother Teresa. And I feel that very much.” source

That doesn’t sound like someone just being humble, that sounds like someone who is unsure of and maybe a little afraid of what will happen when they die. Imagine preaching for well over half a century and have no assurance you’re even saved? Truly heartbreaking. Not just for Billy Graham, but for the millions more he deceived and turned over to the Vatican.

A sad ending for the “world’s greatest evangelist”, don’t you think?

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” James 4:4 (KJV)

‘Beauty And The Beast’ Director Wants To ‘Rip Pages Out Of The Bible’ As He Defends Gay Character In Remake • Now The End Begins

 

During a 2012 interview with Passport Magazine, Beauty and the Beast director Bill Condon said that he wishes he could “rip pages out of the Bible” as soon as he arrives in a hotel room, though, to Condon’s disappointment, there are usually none available.

“And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:27 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Usually when we report on these types of things, we will receive emails from people berating us for saying that Hollywood has a very definite anti-Christian bias and agenda. But as you can see, Hollywood hates Christians, hates the Bible, and will do anything they can to promote the LGBTQP lifestyle as they are now doing in the latest Beauty And The Beast remake. The movie’s director wants to “rip the pages out of the Bible” whenever he checks into a hotel room as he travels. What does that tell you about the agenda of this movie?

“What is first thing you do when you get into a hotel room?” asked Passport Magazine, in a now-archived interview.

Liberal bill empowers gvmt to take kids from Ontario parents who don’t accept gender ideology: legal experts | News | LifeSite

 

 

TORONTO, March 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — An Ontario Liberal bill that legal experts warn gives the state greater power to seize children and can be used to enforce gender ideology in the home sailed unopposed through second reading last week.

Eighty-three of Ontario’s 107 MPPs voted unanimously March 9 to send Bill 89 to the Liberal-dominated Standing Committee on Justice Policy.

Parents As First Educators (PAFE) president Tanya Granic Allen says it’s a “shame that not one MPP voted against” the “Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act” at second reading.

“I expect MPPs to stand up to political pressure and to do their job of representing parents who are worried about the government’s infringement in their family life,”she told LifeSiteNews.

Bill 89 repeals and replaces the existing Child and Family Services Act, which governs child protection services, and adoption and foster care services.

It adds “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.”

At the same time, Bill 89 deletes the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child as a factor to be considered, and mandates that child protection services instead consider only the child’s own “creed.”…
