Obama's Burwell Knows PEU

President Obama's nominee for OMB Chief comes from the Billionaire foundation side (Bill Gates and the Walmart's Waltons).  This means Sylvia Mathews Burwell likely heard PEU sales pitches.

Ms. Burwell’s unique combination of experience in economics and government service and as a senior executive of charitable foundations with activities around the world gives her an informed perspective on global financial, business and philanthropic activities and diverse cultural considerations that may impact MetLife as a global provider of insurance and financial products and services. Her background and experience also enhance her understanding of the Company’s and MetLife Foundation’s contributions to civic, educational and charitable organizations.

Red and Blue love PEU.  MetLife's 2012 proxy showed Burwell received $260,000 in board compensation with control over 22,000 shares, 15,000 beneficially owned and 7,000 deferred shares.  However Burwell received 4,000 shares in 2012 for a total of 26,000. Those shares would fetch $920,000 at Friday's closing stock price.

Burwell will serve the Government-Corporate Monstrosity, Eisenhower's Military Industrial Complex on trillions in federal steroids and intent on global tampering.  She'll work for blue tinted PEU's and their sponsored politicians.  It's hegemony, where the greed and power boys, and an occasional girl, win.

Update 7-16-22:  Burwell is now President of American University and just hired former Carlyle Group Managing Director David Marchick as Dean of AU's business school.
