    Obama was a lackey of international finance. Why or how would anyone expect him to investigate or prosecute his bosses?

    Really makes one think that the government considers terrorists those people who are generally a bunch of boomers on the internet that believe our nation's elites are inundated with pedophile rings - especially in light of the fact that numerous pedophile rings have not only been confirmed to exist in recent years but actually were inundated with the nation's elites (NXIVM, Jeffrey Epstein).

    I am not sure he had any direct bosses, but maybe there were some money connections between the banks and the democratic party and they wanted to keep their donors or something like that. Not prosecuting the banksters was a mistake, that undermined people's faith in democracy and justice. Look at Iceland

    Further to my post #269: Well, in light of current events over in the USA, I've just bought a few boxes of pétards, which I now gleefully throw in your general direction.

    And here's an article for the delectation of our resident amateur psychoanalyst from down-under, written by a qualified psychologist (Mary Trump, niece of The Donald) who predicts how the fellow will now act going forward:

    I'm skeptical of comments of Mary Trump. She has an axe to grind - she wants her money.

    but she is right. If you wound a person with a narcissistic personality disorder, he experiences a narcissistic rage
