Top anti-'birther' confirmed to be ex-Fannie Mae chief
World Net Daily ^ | 31 Jul 2011 | Jerome Corsi

Posted on 07/31/2011 4:40:45 PM PDT by Meet the New Boss

'There isn't much point to denial,' source says of White House-linked James A. Johnson

A radical Obama supporter who organizes an "Obama-Robot" website has admitted in online posts that WND correctly identified former chairman of Fannie Mae chairman James A. Johnson as the group's White House-associated ring-leader. William L. Bryan, who posts under the username "P.J. Foggy," is the organizer of Fogbow.com, a self described "OBOT," or "Obama-Robot" website. On his weekly "Reality Check Radio" broadcast July 21, Bryan began the show by acknowledging the veracity of the WND report.

"As far as I know [WND] got the boss," he said. "There just isn't much point to denial."

As previously reported, Hale told WND he spoke with JimBot numerous times on the telephone and that JimBot insisted he was a Washington, D.C., Democratic Party insider who directed OBOT activity in the Foxbow community from his office across the street from the White House.

JimBot further told Hale that he paid as many as 100 OBOTs in a disinformation campaign aimed at people questioning Obama's eligibility to be president.

Is that a trick question? Since so many anti-birthers post on few if any other threads [i.e.: other than eligibility], and post the same exact twaddle over and over and over and over again, it’s obvious they are seminar posters. Somebody is feeding them talking points, and they spew it mindlessly back ad nauseum.

Yes, they are here.

Next question.

Without a doubt! One doesn’t spend hours here championing barry’s right to presidency for nothing! They all sound like robots - spewing the same old crapola while thinking they are indeed original.

What better place than a pro-Constitution God Family Country Life/Liberty site where the believers are.

This Johnson dude should be running his blog from a Supermax in Colorado for the injury he has done to this Nation. (Yes, read Reckless Endangerment, written by a business writer for the New York Times...believe it or not, she tells the truth about the Great Recession being federally sponsored.)

"All this was inspired by the principle--which is quite true within itself--that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying."

I remember when Jerry Corsi was trying to take down the President. Now he’s just whining about people on Internet message boards, and is apparently too dumb to realize he’s getting trolled. He’s confusing their snarkiness for candid admissions.

Fannie Mae’s Johnson Was ‘Pied Piper,’ Drove U.S. Off Housing Cliff: Books

James A. Johnson (born December 24, 1943) is a United States Democratic Party political figure, and the former CEO of Fannie Mae. He was the campaign manager for Walter Mondale’s failed 1984 presidential bid and chaired the vice presidential selection committee for the presidential campaign of John Kerry. He was involved in the vice-presidential selection process for the 2008 Democratic presidential nominee, Senator Barack Obama.

From 1977 to 1981 he was executive assistant to Vice President Walter Mondale during the entire Carter Administration.

In 1981, Johnson co-founded Public Strategies, a private consulting firm, with diplomat Richard Holbrooke. He headed the firm until 1985. During that time, he was the campaign manager for Walter Mondale’s failed 1984 presidential bid. From 1985 to 1990, he was a managing director with Lehman Brothers.

In 1990, Johnson became vice chairman of Fannie Mae, or the Federal National Mortgage Association, a quasi-public organization that guarantees mortgages for millions of American homeowners.[3] In 1991, he was appointed chairman and chief executive officer of Fannie Mae,[3] a position he held until 1998.

An Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) report[4] from September 2004 found that, during Johnson’s tenure as CEO, Fannie Mae had improperly deferred $200 million in expenses. This enabled top executives, including Johnson and his successor, Franklin Raines, to receive substantial bonuses in 1998. A 2006 OFHEO report found that Fannie Mae had substantially under-reported Johnson’s compensation. Originally reported as $6–7 million, Johnson actually received approximately $21 million.

In the 2011 book Reckless Endangerment: How Outsized Ambition, Greed and Corruption Led to Economic Armageddon, authors Gretchen Morgenson and Joshua Rosner wrote that Johnson was “corporate America’s founding father of regulation manipulation”, and one of the key figures responsible for the late-2000s financial crisis.

Johnson has been a board member of Goldman Sachs, Gannett Company, Inc., KB Home, Target Corporation, Temple-Inland, and a former director of UnitedHealth Group.

Johnson is married to Maxine Issacs, who served as press secretary for Walter Mondale during his 1984 election campaign.

An excerpt from Wiki. Johnson could own the world record for the biggest presidential campaign epic failures.

- - - - - -

"James A. Johnson (born December 24, 1943) is a United States Democratic Party political figure, and the former CEO of Fannie Mae. He was the campaign manager for Walter Mondale's failed 1984 presidential bid and chaired the vice presidential selection committee for the presidential campaign of John Kerry. He was involved in the vice-presidential selection process for the 2008 Democratic presidential nominee, Senator Barack Obama.

...

Johnson worked in the unsuccessful presidential campaigns of Eugene McCarthy in 1968, and George McGovern and 1972.[1]

From 1977 to 1981 he was executive assistant to Vice President Walter Mondale during the entire Carter Administration.

In 1981, Johnson co-founded Public Strategies, a private consulting firm, with diplomat Richard Holbrooke.[3] He headed the firm until 1985. During that time, he was the campaign manager for Walter Mondale's failed 1984 presidential bid. From 1985 to 1990, he was a managing director with Lehman Brothers."

With Obama’s propaganda machine, White House twittering, past associations, forged BC, record evasiveness and lawsuits Corsi’s claim is not unrealistic.

The White House has also fought against transparency and FOIA request into Fannie Mae records.

It's not Corsi's claim, though. He's just reporting a two-year-old story from Ed Hale. Do you find Ed Hale to be a trustworthy source? And don't give me one of those "I trust him more than I trust Obama" cop outs. I'm not interested in that. I just want to know if you find this man, who has a history of making outrageous claims on call-in radio shows, to be trustworthy.

ROFL! Foggy! This guy is a loser troll. He started trolling on Phil Berg’s obamacrimes.com trying to convince people he’s a lawyer. But when asked legitimate legal questions he could never answer. I pressed him and his female co-hort several times and they always spittered and sputtered when pinned down. BUT they claimed all this mumbo jumbo legal fleagel eagle stuff about the birth certificate and SCOTUS actions quoting all kinds of statutes. But they never understood the aspect of the real qualification of being a natural born citizen. They always harked on the birth certificate.

After they got kicked off obamacrimes.com for being rude and obnoxious and name calling twits. They moved over to a website on which I was on the Board. Once we kicked them out they put up their own website called politijab.com and continue their ad nauseum poking fun and coined the phrase ‘Birthers’.

I traced down his female co-hort who claimed she’s a lawyer and found out she’s just a phone-answering gofer girl twit in some lawyers office. But Foggy was to slick. Once they moved off our website, we joined the Tea Party movements, I never paid much attention unless one of my other Board members pointed out something on politijab.com when he’d go over there and play with their followers tiny minds.

I’m not surprised he’s claiming association with somebody like Johnson. It’s something he would do, but I would kinda doubt that he’s more than some phone-answering twit in somebody’s law office. But he talks a good game. And who knows, maybe the Obamajaad cadre is paying him now. I know they pay trolls on the CBS news comments site. I always suspected this one CBS troll could be him because he always talked like he knew me. And he had about 6-8 CBS logins going on on different screens and he’d have conversations with himself backing up his facts.

Foggy is a nutjob. I have no clue whether what he’s telling WMD is true or not I seriously doubt that Johnson would be affiliated with this guy and his pal Rikker. Now claims to be a ‘former’ attorney, OMG, now that’s a scream.

California Bar Journal Discipline Summaries

Summaries from the California Bar Journal are based on discipline orders but are not the official records. Not all discipline actions have associated CBJ summaries. Copies of official attorney discipline records are available upon request.

January 15, 2000

The probation of WILLIAM L. BRYAN JR. [#117084], 47, of Foothill Ranch was revoked, the previous stay of suspension was lifted, and he was given a new two-year suspension, stayed, and placed on two years of probation with a 60-day actual suspension. The order took effect Jan. 15, 2000.

Bryan was disciplined in 1998 for misconduct in three consolidated cases. His actions included failure to perform legal services competently, promptly return client papers or respond to client inquiries, improperly withdrawing from representation and false advertising.

He failed to comply with eight separate conditions of the 1998 probation, including submitting quarterly probation reports, attending ethics school, attending Narcotics Anonymous meetings and taking the professional responsibility examination.

In mitigation, the misconduct occurred at a time Bryan was suffering from severe emotional difficulties and had family problems. He and his wife were about to adopt a baby when the birth mother took the child back, an event which worsened Bryan’s manic depressive illness. In addition, he and his wife cared for his wife’s terminally ill parents at their home.

April 4, 1998

WILLIAM LITTELL BRYAN JR. [#117084], 45, of Foothill Ranch was suspended for two years, stayed, placed on two years of probation and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year. The order took effect April 4, 1998.

Bryan represented three clients in a malicious prosecution case. When he failed to appear at four court hearings, he and his clients were sanctioned, and the case was dismissed.

He stipulated that he failed to perform legal services competently, keep his clients reasonably informed about developments in a case, communicate, return files, pay sanctions and obey court orders.

Bryan filed a damages claim in another case. He then stopped working on the case but did not properly withdraw from employment. When he failed to prosecute the case, it was dismissed. He did not appear at an evaluation conference and no defendants were served with the complaint.

Bryan also stipulated that he advertised as an attorney in a false and deceptive manner by listing himself and a retired attorney as purported partners, although he had no professional association with her.

In mitigation, he has no record of prior discipline, and suffered from manic depression and substance abuse. His illness is now under control and he is sober."

“Top anti-’birther’ confirmed to be ex-Fannie Mae chief”

How exactly was anything “confirmed” here? From looking at the article, Corsi’s only sources appear to be the claims of a Bigfoot hunter and a handful of what look like sarcastic comments from ‘Foggy.’ And he even quotes a direct denial from the guy he previously said WAS Jimbot.

And is it just me, or is it bad journalism to publicly declare that an online identity has been “confirmed” without making a concerted effort to get a comment from the real James Johnson?

I don't think it's just you.

Quoting Corsi himself: "NeonZX admitted that he was JimBot, but denied that he was James Johnson, offering as proof an appearance he had made on Hale's Plains Radio show, speaking in a youthful voice clearly distinguishable from Johnson's more mature voice."

Yet the title of the article is, "Top anti-'birther' confirmed to be ex-Fannie Mae chief."

I just want to know if you find this man, who has a history of making outrageous claims on call-in radio shows, to be trustworthy.

Did I miss something? At the WND link there seems to be a screen shot of Bill Bryan admitting that James Johnson is involved. Why should we be concerned with Ed Hale? (Whoever that is.) With an Admission by a participant, it doesn't matter if the accuser is the "boy who cried wolf." The charge has been substantiated by other means. Apart from that, You do know what an "Ad Hominem" is, don't you?

I would have thought that if someone was going to go to the trouble to contest something, they would at least have read the information which they are contesting, but people who defend Obama's eligibility are not the sharpest knives in the drawer. If they were knowledgeable and intelligent enough to understand what is wrong with their arguments, they wouldn't be making them in the first place.

It isn't any more credible than the first time.

Another goof who apparently hasn't bothered to read the article.

But now it's "confirmed."

Foggy is a nutjob. I have no clue whether what he’s telling WMD is true or not I seriously doubt that Johnson would be affiliated with this guy and his pal Rikker. Now claims to be a ‘former’ attorney, OMG, now that’s a scream.

All Democrats are Nutjobs except the exploiters. They are the ones that keep the nutjobs riled up to maintain their positions in power. The Exploiters are just evil.

Interesting posting history for the subject at hand. How did you slip by the Admins?

I always assumed the Administrators were just tolerant or perhaps providing a special service for children to be babysat.
