Funny enough the people who he pushed all of these billions of dollars to during his State Senate stint funded and then campaigned for his presidential election campaign.
It seems that Obama has been part of this Chicago Clique for as long as he has been there
Who introduced him to the Clique when he got to Chicago? I'm not sure, but I bet thats a good starting spot.
I think to goes back to his Harvard days. Who paid for his IVY league tuition? He didn't really have good paying job either. Did his grandparents pay for it? History seems pretty blurry on this topic.
Obama has tried to cover up everything from his birth certificate to his college grades and so forth. He is hiding something huge, and there is a massive bankroll, well used to be, behind him. I think that ended with the Saudis.
[…] In late March 2008, a former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton told a New York cable channel that a former business partner who was “raising money” for Obama had approached him in 1988 to help Obama get into Harvard Law School.
In this video interview, Sutton says he first heard of Obama about twenty years ago from Khalid Al-Mansour, who Sutton described as advisor to “one of the world’s richest men,” Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal. …
As Sutton remembered, Al-Mansour was raising money for Obama’s education and seeking recommendations for him to attend Harvard Law School. …
Apparently, al-Mansour serves on the Board of, among others, Saudi African Bank and was responsible for the Africa investment activities of Kingdom Holdings, Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal’s investment company.

alwaleed is the major shareholder in Citigroup
Citi, which was kept afloat by a series of state rescues during the financial crisis, said it would sell $20.5 billion in new securities under the plan.
The proceeds will be used to buy back the preferred shares held by the US Treasury under the Troubled Asset Relief Program.
The plan also calls for the Treasury to sell $5 billion of the common stock held in Citi and “to sell the remainder of its shares in an orderly fashion over the next six to 12 months,” a Citigroup statement said. The rescue of Citigroup was the most extensive for the US banks hit by the financial crisis last year.

i'm going to have to start screenshotting all this crap. there was a passing tweet by B (i know i know...) regarding the Obama library. something to the effect of "good thing the good guys got there first". i'll go back and try to refresh myself with the context, but it seemed to suggest that someone had already gone through and gotten the good stuff before it got lost.
