Penny Pritzker: Obama's Likely Commerce Secretary Choice
by Stephen Lendman
Pritzker is an unindicted crook.
She's one of America's most powerful women. For sure she's one of the richest. Forbes estimates she's worth $1.85 billion.
She's also heir to the Hyatt Hotels and Pritzker family fortune. It's net worth exceeds $20 billion. Some think it's much more.
No one knows for sure. It's stashed in tax havens. Only little people pay what they owe. Billionaires use money to make more of it. They steal plenty along the way.
Balzac said behind every great fortune lies a great crime. Tax Justice Network estimates up to $32 trillion in hidden and stolen wealth stashed in tax havens. Maybe it's much more. No one knows for sure.
Insiders say Pritzker's Obama's top Commerce Secretary choice. Honest observers want her held accountable. She has lots to answer for. More on that below.
Her official bio calls her a "civic and business leader." She's PSP Capital Partners founder, chairman and CEO. She also heads Pritzker Realty Group and Artemis Real Estate Partners. Previously she was involved in other family businesses.
In February 2011, Obama appointed her to the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness (PCJC). General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt headed it.
He destroyed jobs at the same time. He offshored them to low wage countries. He pretended to advise Obama on creating them. He faked it. PCJC met four times. It was a sham. It accomplished nothing.
In January 2012, it was disbanded. It never should have been established in the first place. It was smoke and mirrors. It was typical Obama. It did nothing to create jobs.
Pritzker serves on Hyatt's board. She's a former Wm. Wrigley, Jr. Company, Marmon Group and LaSalle Bank board member. She chaired credit reporting firm TransUnion.
She's a Council on Foreign Relations member. She belongs to other elitist groups. They're international and influential. They're comprised of likeminded figures. They're up to no good.
In its August 2008 " Power of Penny Pritzker " article, Bloomberg called her the "billionaire head of Barack Obama's fundraising machine (and) the person to call when you want to 'get the job done,' says Warren Buffett."
In 2008, she was Obama's campaign finance team national chairwoman. She raised millions. She shattered fundraising records.
