We hear that Congress is calling John Podesta for a hearing about Hillary Clinton. However, many do not even know who John Podesta is or what his ideology is, which is something that goes against the Constitution among other ideas. So, let's disclose who this man is and what his ideas are to show the evil man that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both had working for them.
John Podesta was the White House Chief of Staff for Obama and that gave him a lot of power, which he seemingly abused.
From Wikipedia we get this introduction of this evil man.
“John David Podesta (born January 8, 1949) is a columnist and former chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. He previously served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and Counselor to President Barack Obama.
He is the former president, and now Chair and Counselor, of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a think tank in Washington, D.C., as well as a Visiting Professor of Law at the Georgetown University Law Center. Additionally, he was a co-chairman of the Obama-Biden Transition Project.

Wikipedia is nice in its description of John David Podesta. However, take a look at the side that few have been shown and it should be shared with as many people as possible.
John Podesta is linked to Center for American Progress (CAP), which perhaps is a Socialistic group determined to undermine and eventually destroy the United States Constitution. But the first thing we learn about CAP is that it is also funded by the one person linked to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Podesta, Harold Ickes, and a number of others. That person is none other than George Soros, but we will dig a bit deeper into Mr. Podesta’s background.
John Podesta engaged in the smearing and filibustering of any and all Republican judicial nominees. Podesta helped his first Democrat to begin his attempt to “circumvent” the Constitution.
“Podesta served on the staff of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) from 1981 to 1988. Leahy was an early advocate of circumventing the U.S. Constitution by gaining control over federal courts. Podesta assisted Leahy in pioneering the indiscriminate smearing and filibustering of any and all Republican judicial nominees -- a practice previously unknown in Washington.
In 1988, Podesta teamed up with his brother Anthony to form the Washington lobbying firm Podesta Associates. One of their first clients was Michael Dukakis. John Podesta served as opposition research director -- commonly dubbed a “dirt digger” -- for Dukakis' 1988 presidential campaign.
From January 1993 to 1995, Podesta worked as a White House staff secretary and Assistant to President Clinton.
He served as Counselor to Democratic Senate Leader Thomas Daschle from 1995 to 1996 and then returned to the White House, where he finished out the last years of the Clinton administration -- first as Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff (1997-98) and then as Chief of Staff (October 1998 to January 2001).
During his years in the Clinton White House, Podesta helped suppress numerous federal investigations into Clinton wrongdoing, and helped short-circuit the Clinton impeachment proceedings through backroom deals.”
Podesta is the man who got Bill Clinton off the hook for his affair in the White House and saved him from Impeachment. We will see in this article the use of the word, “Progressives” the word itself seems to be capricious at best but used the way Podesta and the Democrats use it holds a meaning that is never good for a free society. We will not get into the word much beyond stating that used like the Democrats use it, hides the Socialistic ideology of the people using the word. John Podesta is very good at hiding and manipulating words and people to hide facts that would place a normal individual in Jail and this can be seen by his actions with Bill Clinton who loved him for helping him stay out of jail.
“During his years in the Clinton White House, Podesta helped suppress numerous federal investigations into Clinton wrongdoing, and helped short-circuit the Clinton impeachment proceedings through backroom deals.
The Clintons recognized Podesta's talent for scandal-suppression early. While still a mere staff secretary at the White House in 1993, Podesta found himself swamped with so many scandal clean-up assignments that he nicknamed himself, "Secretary of [Expletive]." "He's good at it," James Carville remarked to theWashington Post.
Podesta's most lasting contribution to the leftist cause came through his promotion of a strategy that White House aides dubbed "Project Podesta." This was a system that enabled the Clintons to push through unpopular policies that neither Congress nor the American people wanted. Its implementation marked a dramatic tilt in the balance of power, giving the executive branch an unprecedented ability to force its will on the legislative branch.”
John Podesta was the person who got the use of Executive Orders to bypass the Congress and the Constitution. Podesta was the man behind the wrongful use, or abuse, of the Executive Orders. Podesta opened up a Pandora’s box of problems by forcing compliance to Executive Orders when they were, in some cases, illegal. This is but a small part of this evil man's work. To illustrate what Podesta did to begin the unraveling of the Constitution and nearly making Congress useless, take a look at what he did below.
“Project Podesta enabled the President to bypass Congress through the use of executive orders, presidential decision directives, White-House-sponsored lawsuits, vacancy appointments to high federal office, selective regulatory actions against targeted corporations, and a host of other extra-constitutional tactics.
In short, Podesta showed the Clintons that they could gain by force what they might fail to achieve through legislation. "Stroke of the pen. Law of the land. Kind of cool," quipped White House aide Paul Begala to The New York Times on July 5, 1998, in response to questions about the Clintons' growing disdain for the will of Congress.
John Podesta has ideas that are not about the freedom we now enjoy, but his ideas harbor the Socialist idealistic ways that have caused a very serious problem for Venezuela. We, as Citizens of the United States, do not want or dream of a life like that of the people in Venezuela where food is sparse, except for the rich, and stores are bare. John Podesta was the person responsible for the Al Gore-Bush debate going to the Supreme Court even when it seemed Gore lost.
“Project Podesta reached its logical conclusion in Al Gore's effort to litigate his way into the White House in 2000. During the infamous 36-day, post-election stand-off, Podesta worked behind the scenes with Gore's legal team even as the Clinton White House publicly declared its neutrality. Podesta bears personal responsibility for forcing the election into the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Bush won the Florida recount, as expected. But the transition offices remained locked. Podesta's unprecedented act stunned official Washington and plunged America into a constitutional crisis.
Four years later, when Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry announced his plan to mobilize a legal team of more than 6,000 attorneys for the 2004 election, it was evident that Project Podesta had changed U.S. politics forever.”
Once again, Podesta, through his very aggressive acts, forced orders that had never been attempted, much less done. To further understand what is going on with the Democrats, and in particular, with John Podesta, we just have to further look at John Podesta’s work with certain George Soros funded organizations that are predominate in the Democratic Party.
“Podesta co-founded the Center for American Progress (CAP) on July 7, 2003, and would serve as the organization's president and CEO for the next eight years. He was hand-picked for the job by CAP co-founders Morton H. Halperin and George Soros, according to a March 1, 2004 report in The Nation by Robert Dreyfuss. Inside sources described CAP as "the official Hillary Clinton think tank" -- a media spin machine and policy generator designed to serve as a springboard for Mrs. Clinton's presidential ambitions.
On September 27, 2007, Podesta, Anna Burger, and Andrew Stern wrote a very significant email memo to several leftist billionaires -- George Soros, Peter Lewis, Herb and Marion Sandler, Steven Bing, John Sperling, and Michael Vachon -- which was subsequently hacked and made public by WikiLeaks nine years later. The memo emphasized that the Left should do everything in its power to change the demographics of the American population by any means necessary -- especially immigration and naturalization policy -- so as to make those demographics more “advantageous” to Democrats. Said the email: “Ensure that demographics is destiny. An 'emerging progressive majority' is a realistic possibility in terms of demographic and voting patterns. But it is incomplete in terms of organizing and political work. Women, communities of color, and highly educated professionals are core parts of the progressive coalition. Nationally, and in key battleground states, their influence is growing. Latinos and young voters are quickly solidifying in this coalition as well.... The rapid increase in demographic importance of Latinos will continue for decades. Hispanics have surpassed blacks as the nation’s largest minority group, and Census projections indicate that by about mid-century Hispanics will be one-quarter of the U.S. population (at which point or shortly thereafter, the United States will become a majority-minority nation).”
Podesta was a featured speaker at the March 2008 "Take Back America" conference of Campaign for America's Future, where he declared that global warming was a "severe national security problem" that President Bush had failed to address in any meaningful way.
After Barack Obama was elected President in 2008, Podesta and at least ten additional CAP experts served as some of his most influential advisers. He was the head of the new President's transiton team.
Over the years, Podesta has made campaign contributions to numerous Democratic candidates, including Hillary Clinton, Tom Daschle, Rosa DeLauro, Christopher Dodd, Tammy Duckworth, Richard Durbin, Barney Frank, Al Franken, Richard Gephardt, Al Gore, Maurice Hinchey, Edward Kennedy, John Kerry, Patrick Leahy, Barack Obama, Charles Rangel, Harry Reid, and Paul Wellstone. In 2002 Podesta also made a $1,000 contribution to the League of Conservation Voters.
In 2010 Podesta authored a report outlining ways in which President Obama could use his executive authority as well as the Environmental Protection Agency to push a progressive agenda on climate policy. Specifically, Podesta wrote that: (a) the EPA could “spur the retirement of coal-fired power plants” -- and their replacement with natural gas plants -- by mandating stricter carbon dioxide emissions limits; and (b) President Obama should use his executive power to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 17% by 2020. Before long, both of Podesta's recommendations were made manifest in actual policy: In 2013, the EPA announced that it was imposing emissions limits that would effectively ban coal-fired power plants unless they installed highly expensive carbon capture and storage technology. And in 2014, Obama said he planned to use executive orders to meet the 17% carbon-dioxide reduction goal.”
John Podesta seemed to be instrumental in shutting down the coal-fired plants because of the fictitious Global Warming agenda, which was forced down Congress’ throat because they would not fight him. He did not care or worry about being wrong, as long as he got his agenda through with or without the consent of Congress.
Podesta is perhaps the most corrupt man in Washington, D.C. and he is also part of the “Shadow Party,” a very real group set up by George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Harold Ickles. With the release of Podesta e-mails, much of it had to do with covering up all sorts of things. Here are a few samples.
“Podesta Knew That President Obama Was Aware of Hillary Clinton's Private Email Server
• In a March 7, 2015 email to Podesta, Hillary Clinton adviser Cheryl Mills expressed concern about the fact that President Obama had falsely told reporters that he had been unaware of Mrs. Clinton's use of a private, unsecured email server, until he heard about it in news stories. Wrote Mills: “we need to clean this up -- he has emails from her -- they do not say state.gov.”
Proof That Podesta Knew That Mrs. Clinton Was Using a Private, Unsecured Email Server to Discuss Sensitive Information
In a pair of August 2014 emails to John Podesta, Hillary Clinton discussed foreign-policy intelligence over her private, unsecured email server, writing:
- “Sources include Western intelligence, US intelligence and sources in the region.”
• “any idea whose fighters attacked Islamist positions in Tripoli, Libya? Worth analyzing for future purposes.”
In response, Podesta wrote: “Yes and interesting but not for this channel.”
Alliance Between Podesta/Clinton and the Department Of Justice, During the Period When the DOJ Was Investigating Hillary Clinton's Email Scandal
• In a May 19, 2015 email to Podesta, Justice Department Assistant Attorney Peter Kadzik demonstrated that he was willing and eager to give inside information – in the form of “heads up” briefings – to the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. Wrote Kadzik to Podesta: “There is a HJC [Hose Judiciary Committee] oversight hearing today where the head of our Civil Division will testify. Likely to get questions on State Department emails. Another filing in the FOIA case went in last night or will go in this am that indicates it will be awhile (2016) before the State Department posts the emails.”
We could go on with e-mails and information that show John Podesta as the man behind most of the problems we see in our government today due to his influence from Bill Clinton’s time all the way to Obama’s time in office. John Podesta should be in jail where he could no longer attempt to destroy our nation through the “Shadow Party” or other means he has devised. Maybe his upcoming testimony before the Congressional panel will help put him in jail, but knowing that John Podesta uses all the Socialist tricks in the book to get out of jail, we can be fairly sure he will not be charged or issued anything that will put him there. Congress, from both sides, have failed the American people when it comes to dealing with John Podesta.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
