Obama Leaks

November 17, 2016

I say: ‘Oh, they are world class crooks promoting global plutocracy,’ they retort;’You are supporting Trump!’ What logic is that? Cretinism? After years of miseducation, full-blown cretins are trying to think and all they can do, is insult people. One cannot think well about complicated issues, when one has not trained.

Wikileaks revealed that Obama’s first cabinet was fully chosen, a month before his first election, by Citigroup. Meanwhile, idiots like your truly were working hard to get Obama elected. I guess, it’s supposed to be funny.

By Now, This Is Old, And Rotten, But still Worth Sniffing, Just For The Bad Smell

“The most important revelation in the WikiLeaks dump of John Podesta’s emails has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton. The messages go all the way back to 2008, when Podesta served as co-chair of President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team. And a month before the election, the key staffing for that future administration was almost entirely in place, revealing that some of the most crucial decisions an administration can make occur well before a vote has been cast.

Michael Froman, who is now U.S. trade representative but at the time was an executive at Citigroup, wrote an email to Podesta on October 6, 2008, with the subject “Lists.” Froman used a Citigroup email address. He attached three documents: a list of women for top administration jobs, a list of non-white candidates, and a sample outline of 31 cabinet-level positions and who would fill them. “The lists will continue to grow,” Froman wrote to Podesta, “but these are the names to date that seem to be coming up as recommended by various sources for senior level jobs.”

The cabinet list ended up being almost entirely on the money. It correctly identified Eric Holder for the Justice Department, Janet Napolitano for Homeland Security, Robert Gates for Defense, Rahm Emanuel for chief of staff, Peter Orszag for the Office of Management and Budget, Arne Duncan for Education, Eric Shinseki for Veterans Affairs, Kathleen Sebelius for Health and Human Services, Melody Barnes for the Domestic Policy Council, and more. For the Treasury, three possibilities were on the list: Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, and Timothy Geithner.

This was October 6. The election was November 4. And yet Froman, an executive at Citigroup, which would ultimately become the recipient of the largest bailout from the federal government during the financial crisis, had mapped out virtually the entire Obama cabinet, a month before votes were counted. And according to the Froman/Podesta emails, lists were floating around even before that.”

Meanwhile, Sanders is screaming that Bannon is a racist, Trump should fire him. Quotes? I made an Internet search, and came up empty. OK, I found some amusing quotes of the type ‘does feminism cause cancer’? (OK, not even that, I made it up. Feminism does cause cancer, sorry about making a joke of it…)

When the pseudo-left stops fooling around, we can hope to progress, but not before that.

Ah, and why does feminism cause cancer? I will leave it as a cliffhanger (but make no mistake, there is a state of the art of science analysis lurking in the dark behind this, and well supported in all sorts of ways…)
