Barack Obama Facts - Fact #4

Barack Obama will be appointing people that go against the people's best interests.

This one is so simple that I'm going to give you a two-fer with another Obama fact later in the day.

But first, Obama's appointees.

Okay, I'd like you all to know that Barack Obama has little to no choice in the matter of who makes up his cabinet. I understand that completely.

However, he does have a mouth and he does have feet and all he has to do is tell the powers that pick to go fuck themselves and threaten to walk.

But, of course, that's not how the real world works, either.

Barack Obama is just as power hungry as those that he works for (and I don't mean the American people).

So Rahm Emanuel, Joe Biden and perhaps Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder, as Secretary Of State and Attorney General respectively have all been "chosen" by Obama to be members of his cabinet.

But what do we know about these people?

Rahm Emanuel is a Zionist and will never bend toward fair treatment of the Palestinian people.

Joe Biden is so far up the ass of the banking industry that he can smell what they had for breakfast.

Hillary Clinton is a warmonger par excellence and yet she's to be the "peacemaker" AKA the Secretary Of State?

And Eric Holder.

Eric Holder is a very interesting guy, he really is.

When I first heard the name last night, I thought, "Where do I know that name from?"

Turns out that Eric Holder is one of the troika that supposedly chose Joe Biden as the Veep.

But it doesn't stop there.

Since 2001, Mr. Holder has been a lawyer at the firm of Covington & Burling, a D.C. law firm that helps those poor unfortunate corporations out of jams that they never should have been in but for the evil people of the world.

Some of Covington & Burling's clients include: Bank of America (a Biden favorite), Eli Lilly (wonder if he ever had dealings with Rumsfeld), General Electric (a war contractor), Morgan Stanley and Proctor & Gamble.

But I think my three favorite clients are:

Halliburton, who hired Covington & Burling to stop the government from asking questions and investigating the contracts they received from the Bush thugs to help kill Iraqis.

Phillip Morris, who hired Covington & Burling to convince people that second-hand smoke doesn't really harm anyone.

And, saving my favorite for last...

The Southern Peru Copper Corporation, who hired Covington & Burling to get a lawsuit filed under the Alien Tort Claims Act dropped. The suit, filed by Peruvian citizens, charged that the company had been polluting the shit out of Peru and caused health problems.

But, not to worry, people, Barack Obama is different and so is his cabinet.

Different than what, both the Obama team and their sycophants don't say.

Back with another fact later.
