Re: Obama Comparison - Cabinet Past Private Sector ...

I think this should be no surprise. It sad and scary, but it should not be surprising.  It was clear during the campaign that he didn't have any experience, and that he didn't have any associates with any experience. Yet he won anyway, due to a slick pop culture marketing strategy. There was never any substance to this, just the image that he was hip and cool. It was cool to stand in the huge throngs of people worshiping him and chant "Yes we can!" Nobody ever asked, yes we can do what, exactly?  How's that hope and change working out? Looks like not very well!

Another interesting fact about Obama's appointments is that many are members of the Trilateral Commission:

According to official Trilateral Commission membership lists, there are only 87 members from the United States (the other 337 members are from other regions). Thus, in less than two weeks since his inauguration, Obama's appointments encompass more than 12% of Commission's entire U.S. membership.

  • Secretary of Treasury, Tim Geithner
  • Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice
  • National Security Advisor, Gen. James L. Jones
  • Deputy National Security Advisor, Thomas Donilon
  • Chairman, Economic Recovery Committee, Paul Volker
  • Director of National Intelligence, Admiral Dennis C. Blair
  • Assistant Secretary of State, Asia & Pacific,  Kurt M. Campbell
  • Deputy Secretary of State, James Steinberg
  • State Department, Special Envoy, Richard Haass
  • State Department, Special Envoy, Dennis Ross
  • State Department, Special Envoy, Richard Holbrooke

Senator Barry Goldwater (R-AZ) issued a clear warning in his 1979 book, With No Apologies:

“The Trilateral Commission is international and is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power – political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical.”

Many others in Obama's circle are members of the CFR...but that's another story

Re: Obama Comparison - Cabinet Past Private Sector ...

Thanks for the posts on Obama's cabinet appointments and the members of the Obama Administration who are members of the Trilateral Commission.  This explains why Obama almost exclusively turns to totalitarian & globalistic solutions contrary to the viewsof most Americans as well as princlples of freedom.
