Susan Rice (The Real Story… Maybe?)

I’m not going to say that it is a well known fact but, it is disputed that our re-elected commander in chief, President Barak Obama, is a puppet in the grand scheme of what is going on today. Follow me down the rabbit hole for a moment if you will and let’s us evaluate the actions that have taken place.

Worldwide, it is believed that bankers are running the show. It would be hard to argue considering the “bottom line” is money. Who better to manage funds than bankers? A country needs money to run. To go to war, you need money. Many things are centered around the necessity of money to make happen. Let me not get too far off topic here. Do you remember the bailout in 2008? In the essence of time, here is a brief synopsis of the bailout:

The Senate passed the $700 billion bank bailout bill on October 3 2008. The guts of the bill was the same as the three-page document submitted on September 21 2008, by Treasury SecretaryHenry Paulson. Paulson had asked Congress to approve a $700 billion bailout to buy mortgage-backed securities that were in danger of defaulting. By doing so, Paulson wanted to take these debts off the books of the banks, hedge funds and pension funds that held them. The goal was to instill confidence in the functioning of the global banking system, which had narrowly avoided collapse.

The bill established the Troubled Assets Recovery Program (TARP). It originally gave troubled banks the right to submit a bid price to sell their assets to TARP as part of a reverse auction. Each auction was to be for a certain asset class. TARP administrators would select the lowest price for each asset class, which was to help assure that the government didn’t pay too much for distressed assets. However, it took too long to develop the auction program, so instead Treasury lent $115 billion to banks by purchasingpreferred stock.

Do you remember the outrage of the public when the banks were bailed out?

Are you familiar with the Bilderberg group? You should be. They hold a conference each year on world affairs. The Bilderberg Conference is held each year at an expensive hotel in Europe or North America. It is named after the hotel in the Netherlands where the first conference was held in 1954. The 120 or so people invited to attend in a private rather than official capacity and the conference aims to enhance “mutual understanding”. Still no mention of Susan Rice. I know. It’s coming. Just bear with me for a second here. According to BBC correspondent Emma Jane Kirby:

Bilderberg, which was founded in the 1950s by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, is said to steer international policy from behind closed doors. Its critics say that it is a capitalist organisation which operates entirely through self interest. By anyone’s standards, it is a bit of a mystery. There are no members as such – instead, an invitation list is comprised each year by an unknown steering committee, but participants are mainly leading and powerful figures in the fields of business and politics.

We’re getting close to the good part. Over the period of the president’s first term, many of the positions he filled were by people with ties to the banking world over any other industry. What had me real curious was when Barak Obama openly challenged John McCain on his stance on Susan Rice. For Obama to come out in such a manner for her, I was curious about her background.

“President Barack Obama bluntly told Sen. John McCain and other Republicans to lay off their attacks against U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice over the Benghazi assault, telling lawmakers that if they go after her “then you have a problem with me.” And Obama, speaking at his first postelection press conference, vowed that Republican opposition would not dissuade him from nominating Rice to replace departing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

Here is what I discovered. Susan Rice was a management consultant at McKinsey & Company, the global management consulting firm, in the early 1990s. McKinsey & Company is listed as part of the inner circle of the Bilderberg Group. James O’Shea and Charles Madigan noted in their 1997 book Dangerous Company:

“McKinsey business missionaries not only whisper and advise at the highest levels, they have a propensity for moving from the consulting world into the executive suite. IBM, Sears, AT&T, American Express, the list could stretch for pages, all huge companies that first bought McKinsey’s top dollar advice, and then saw McKinsey veterans shift loyalties and join executive ranks, frequently turning back to their old employer to buy consulting services. It is one of the world’s greatest old-boy networks. Job placement is only part of the point. When a Fred Gluck moves from directing McKinsey to running Bechtel Corp., in San Francisco, he takes along McKinsey values, experience, and most important, contacts. There are signs of these connections almost everywhere now, the legacy of decades of consulting and executive contacts.”

Examples of McKinsey employees who went on to bigger and better positions in business and government include:

  • John Cecil, former CAO, Lehman Brothers
  • Vittorio Colao, CEO of Vodafone
  • Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton
  • Hilary ClintonHillary Rodham Clinton, US Secretary of State
  • Don Cruickshank, former general manager of the Sunday Times(UK), former chairman of the London Stock Exchange
  • Louis V. Gerstner, Jr., former chairman and CEO of IBM and RJR Nabisco, and chairman of The Carlyle Group
  • Harvey Golub, former chair and CEO of American Express, former chair of AIG
  • James P. Gorman, President and CEO of Morgan Stanley
  • Stephen Green, chairman of HSBC
  • William HagueWilliam Hague, former UK Tory leader
  • Fred Hilmer, former CEO of Fairfax newspapers, former chair of Pacific Power, Vice-Chancellor of University of NSW
  • Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana
  • Michael H. Jordan, former chair and CEO of Pepsi Co and Westinghouse Electric
  • Marius Kloppers, CEO of BHP Billiton
  • James McNerney, chairman and CEO of Boeing
  • Lukas Muhlemann, former chair of Swiss Re
  • Helmut Panke, former chairman and CEO of BMW AG
  • Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations
  • Jeffrey SkillingSheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook
  • Jonathan Schwartz, former CEO of Sun Microsystems
  • Christopher A. Sinclair, former chairman and CEO of PepsiCo
  • Jeffrey Skilling, former CEO of Enron
  • Kevin Sharer, CEO of Amgen
  • Adair Turner, former Director-General of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), Chair of the Financial Services Authority
  • Peter Wuffli, former CEO of UBS AG

These people are also board directors of other companies and members of influential business coalitions and policy groups.

The names and positions astounds me. You should be surprised yourself. Don’t just take my word for it however, look things up on your own. I am no friend of government. I am a friend of the people. Obama has vested interest in positioning Susan Rice because there is a play being orchestrated on a global scale that most of us can’t even see. We are multiple steps behind what they already have in motion. Share the word.
