Former president Barack H. Obama was reportedly paid almost $600,000 for a speech in Bogota, Colombia, earlier this week according to ZeroHedge.
“According to the report, Obama earned ‘2 billion Colombian pesos,’ or $591,000 USD speaking at the EXMA conference, held Monday and Tuesday,” ZeroHedge said. “Conference attendees could also snap a photo with the former president for just 11 million Colombian pesos, or around $3,200.”
High-profile Democratic Party politicians have long been criticized for accepting huge sums to give speeches to Wall Street bankers and foreign entities. Obama received $400,000 in Sept. 2017 for a speech at a Wall Street health conference.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) infamously criticized failed presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton for accepting $225,000 for speeches on Wall Street.
“Those must be some great speeches,” he said, tacitly accusing Clinton of being bought-and-paid-for by banksters.
Bill Clinton also gave two expensive speeches – clocking in at a total of $600,000 – in Saudi Arabia during the time when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, garnering “pay for play” allegations.
Fox News reported:
[Judicial Watch’s Tom] Fitton referenced reports of the Clinton Foundation receiving “staggering sums” of money from Saudi benefactors, estimated between $18 million and $50 million, he said. Fitton added: “While Mrs. Clinton was secretary of state, Bill Clinton gave two speeches in Saudi Arabia earning a total of $600,000.”
“There is enough evidence to warrant serious investigations of the Clinton Foundation,” Fitton said.

Billionaire George Soros to Give Race Hustling Groups $220 Million to Wreak Havoc Across America
George Soros is ready to crank up racial tensions during the 2020 election cycle.
On July 13, 2020, the Open Society Foundations, a group founded by billionaire George Soros, revealed that it would donate $220 million during the next five years to organizations who allegedly support racial equality in America.
Of the total he plans on donating, $150 million will be sent to “Black-led justice organizations that helped to create and now sustain the momentum towards racial equality.” The remaining $70 million will be allocated towards supporting “ongoing efforts to fight voter suppression and disinformation and ensure safe and secure elections in the midst of the pandemic,” and “nurturing civic engagement among young people,” according to a statement the foundation published.
These donations could play a crucial role in the 2020 elections as both parties attempt to court minorities votes.
The New York Times described Soros’ efforts as “a huge financial undertaking that will support several Black-led racial justice groups for years to come.” According to Amir Tibon of Haaretz, “Soros has donated previously to causes of racial equality and criminal justice reform in the United States, but Monday’s announcement could make the Jewish billionaire the largest single donor to groups fighting for racial justice.”
“Black Voters Matter” is one project Soros’ organizations will be running, which aims to increase voter registration and participation among Africa Americans. Similarly, the “Circle for Justice Innovations”, a group taking the lead on criminal justice reform and mass incarceration will also be activated.
Alex Soros, the oligarch’s son and the deputy chair of Open Society, commented in a statement that “this is the time for urgent and bold action to address racial injustice in America.”
Nationalists across the globe have warned about Soros’ influence when it comes to mass migration and the promotion of degenerate lifestyles.
