How Obama's 2008 Cabinet Was Essentially Chosen for Him

~ Obama's 2008 Cabinet - A purposely multi-cultural collection of corrupt insiders

As of today, Wikileaks has released over 10,000 emails and perhaps the most startling discovery of the WikiLeaks dumps so far didn't come from the most recent emails surrounding the various Hillary scandals, though there are many great ones..

Maybe the most interesting one so far came from 2008 when John Podesta served as co-chair of President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team.

The email came from Michael Froman, a former Citibank executive, who single-handedly built the entire cabinet of what was supposed to be the "main street" President.  

The email in question was even sent from Froman's Citibank email address and includes "A list of African American, Latino and Asian American candidates, broken down by Cabinet/Deputy and Under/Assistant/Deputy Assistant level, plus a list of Native American, Arab/Muslim American and Disabled American candidates."

How absolutely nauseating that blacks and Muslims have to be guaranteed posts into Presidential cabinets!  Even more bile-inducing that the term 'Afr Amer' was used..

Anyways, apparently Obama wasn't as worried about placing women in senior-level positions but Froman decided to offer up some suggestions anyway.

"While you did not ask for this, I prepared and attached a similar document on women."
Froman even went ahead and "scoped out" which people should be appointed to which cabinet positions.

"At the risk of being presumptuous, I also scoped out how the Cabinet-level appointments might be put together, probability-weighting the likelihood of appointing a diverse candidate for each position (given one view of the short list) and coming up with a straw man distribution."

As New Republic points out, the Froman appointment um 'suggestions' ended up being almost entirely right.

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.

Rubin served temporarily as chairman of Froman's bank Citigroup from 2007 to Jan, 2009 succeeding in securing a multi-billion dollar bailout by the Obama transition team that would take place once he was sworn in...

Rubin received more than $126 million in cash and stock for his two years of work

Summers along with Rubin was a former Treasury Secretary under scummy Bill Clinton and Tim Geithner who ended up getting the job for the first term under the Oreo cookie worked at the New York Fed during the 2008 crisis to try to bail out Bear Stearns and AIG even before confirmed on the Obama team
Now what is important to remember is that this correspondence to John Podesta who is currently Chairman of the Hillary Election team took place on October 6, 2008.

The 2008 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.

So Froman, a longtime Obama consigliere, did the key economic policy hiring while part of the transition team.
It certainly would explain the reasoning behind why the Entire economic advisory team for Obama during the 2008 election were fired Immediately after he won, and by 'immediate', we mean the very next day!

They had helped that lying. deceitful licorice jelly bean of a President tailor a very economic populist narrative of fighting Wall Street corruption, going hard after the banks and corporations and instituting some economic fairness and justice back into the system..

Then he wins and like a trojan horse, the Real policymakers get in..

And eight years later most Democrat voters are such idiots, they think things are better and give Obama credit for making their lives and that of their children ultimately worse.
So if this history is any guide then the real power within a future Clinton administration is being formed right now.

In fact, another email from January 2015 reveals that Elizabeth Warren was already "intently focused on personnel issues" almost two full years ago as evidenced by the following recap of a conversation that the Hillary campaign had with her Chief of Staff, Dan Geldon.

Is it any coincidence she backed Hillary's campaign from the start even though her economic ideologies are really more aligned with Bernie Sanders?
To the extent there are any purists left, this should clear up any illusion of who controls the political powers that be.

And the reason we at A&G hold out so much hope that Trump will be different?

The corporate establishment heavily backed Obama both terms and are fully behind Hillary in this election..  

This means they expect more goodies from the bitch and anticipate a very difficult next 4 years if Trump is in office, especially since he is not an establishment Republican and can not be bought
So if nothing else, just look to see who the major financial players support (CitiGroup has donated over $115k to Hillary, GoldmanSachs as donated nearly $1 million, etc..)  the long list of banks and corporations that paid her $250,000a speech to say nothing and who the entire corporate controlled mainstream media support..

Then if you care about this nation, vote for her opponent..
