David Edwards and Andrew McLemore, writing for Raw Story, report on the Clintonite John Podesta, chairman of Obama’s transition team. “The high voter turnout and landslide electoral college victory spell a clear path of American support for Obama’s message of political reform, Podesta told Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Sunday,” report Edwards and McLemore.
Podesta told Wallace they are “moving aggressively to try to build out that core economic team, the national security team.”
“I think his charge to us is that he wants a broad diverse cabinet, one that’s built on first criteria excellence,” Podesta said.
When asked by Wallace what some of Obama’s first decisions might be to prove his dedication to changing Washington, Podesta mentioned that Obama will review all the executive orders issued by President Bush and determine which ones should be repealed.
The co-chairman said Obama would probably overturn the ban on stem cell research as well as orders concerning healthcare and energy transformation.
Stem cell research is a pet cause for Democrats, but you will notice there is no word about National Security Presidential Directive 51, allowing the president to declare martial law and trash the Constitution. Naturally, Obama and his globalist bosses will need this so we can expect it to stay. It provides the president with absolute dictatorial power over the government with no checks and balances. Podesta admitted as much when he said: “There’s a lot the president can do using his executive authority without waiting for congressional action and I think we’ll see the president do that.”
“In the battle of political philosophies during this election, the progressive philosophy won, Podesta said.” For Mr. Podesta and the coming Obama administration, flexing “executive authority without waiting for congressional action” is part of the “progressive philosophy,” but then so is the phony GWOT and the lost cause occupation of Afghanistan. Of course, the Democrat controlled Congress will not have any problems with our new Caesar ruling in authoritative manner. He is a kindred spirit.
Finally, a bit of background on John Podesta is required so we can better understand where we are headed now that Obama has his mandate. Back in 2003 Podesta, along with Harold Ickes, founded what is called the “Heritage of the left,” the American Majority Institute, a 501(c)(3) non-profit “think tank,” or maybe that should be conspiracy tank. Morton Halperin of the Council on Foreign Relations was slated to run the show and George Soros was tagged to provide the lucre.
Masquerading as a progressive, former Bill Clinton chief of staff Podesta worked as a lobbyist for BP, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, the Swiss pharmaceuticals corporation Novartis International AG, and Wal-Mart.
Is it possible an operative for the CFR, the death merchants, multinational pharmaceuticals corporations, and slave-mart will deliver “change”?
Sure it is… and the moon is made of green cheese.
