obamessiah updates: banksters, nukes & comic books

obama economic advisors linked to banksters
obama economic advisors linked to bankstersfrom politico: Lawrence Summers, a top economic adviser to President Barack Obama, pulled in more than $2.7 million in speaking fees paid by firms at the heart of the financial crisis, including Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Merrill Lynch, Bank of America Corp. and the now-defunct Lehman Brothers. He pulled in another $5.2 million last year from D.E. Shaw, a hedge fund for which he served as managing director from October 2006 until joining the administration. Thomas E. Donilon, Obama’s deputy national security adviser, was paid $3.9 million last year by the power law firm O’Melveny & Myers to represent clients, including two firms that received federal bailout funds: Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. He also disclosed that he’s a member of the Trilateral Commission and sits on the steering committee of the super-secret Bilderberg group. Both groups are favorite targets of conspiracy theorists.

obamacomics: 'barack the barbarian' & 'drafted: one hundred days'
obama comics: 'barack the barbarian' and 'drafted: one hundred days'from chicago tribune: Is the presidential sword mightier than his pen? Two new comics with characters based on President Barack Obama may tell us. "Drafted: One Hundred Days" and "Barack the Barbarian: Quest for the Treasure of Stimuli," will feature Obama prominently on their covers and in their stories, according to Chicago-based Devil's Due Publishing. Both are due out in June. The first tells the story of a leader whose future is stunted "when a race from beyond the stars drafted our planet into intergalactic war," reads a company synopsis of the comic, part of the "Drafted" series. The book's Obama is further challenged by an injury that robs him of his greatest strength — speech... Devil's Due founder and President Josh Blaylock, an Obama fan, says the company took inspiration from a half-dozen other Obama comics, including the president's appearance earlier this year with Spider-Man, as well as from the president's own fondness for collecting "Conan the Barbarian" comics... "Barack the Barbarian" also includes a sword-carrying vixen with a striking resemblance to a certain former Republican vice presidential candidate. The apparent faux Sarah Palin is drawn wearing a chain-mail bikini, complete with bookish glasses and a dead-wolf drape. Quest for the treasure of stimuli, indeed.
