There’s Something About…James A. Johnson

James A. Johnson

Cooking books ?  Bank of America ? Countryside ?  Housing bubble ? Everything he touches becomes rotten it seems. Just ask James A. Johnson about questionable business practices. Just another swine suckling ? Even his wife ran. What a guy. The lowest of low. That’s him. There just seems to be a very foul odor around that name Johnson. Every place I find it. Just like them: Fannie Mae. And Target ? Who would shop there ? They sell the most cheap, junk. Sort of like Johnson. Like JCPenney and their dumped Johnson. New guy on board ? Clothing looks like cheap circus attire from a dollar store. What happened ? Poor J.C. Penney. Just another Johnson… There is a pattern here folks. What a deal for America. Like Bank of America and Neal Livingston (RBS) we just cannot win folks with people like this with their claws in our cookie jar. How do they gaze in a mirror or sleep at night ? When is enough money enough for pigs ? It seems never. Livingston, Johnson, MacMillan…never ends.

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 briefly led the vice-presidential selection process for the 2008 Democratic presidential nominee, Senator Barack Obama.

Johnson was born in Benson, Minnesota. He is the son of A. I. Johnson, who was a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives from 1941 to 1958, and who served as speaker of the house in 1955 and 1957.

Johnson received a B.A. in political science from the University of Minnesota in 1966, and a Master of Public Affairs degree from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University in 1968.

Johnson began his career as a faculty member at Princeton University. Later he was a staff member in the United States Senate. He was also director of public affairs at the Dayton-Hudson Corporation (now Target Corporation).

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

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. In 1991, he was appointed chairman and chief executive officer of Fannie Mae, a position he held until 1998.

An Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) report 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 one of the key figures responsible for the late-2000s financial crisis. Morgenson described him in an NPR interview as “corporate America’s founding father of regulation manipulation”. Also according to Morgenson, he changed Fannie’s executive compensation plan to be based on volume not quality and earned over $200 Million dollars while working at Fannie Mae.

On September 19, 2008, the John McCain campaign released an ad critical of Obama which linked him to Johnson, stating that “Fannie cooked the books and Johnson made millions. Then Obama asked him to pick his VP.

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 has also served as chairman of both the Kennedy Center for the Arts (1996–2004) and the Brookings Institution (1994–2003). He is also a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Friends of Bilderberg, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Trilateral Commission.

Shaped the housing market for sure. Into a huge garbage dump of fraud and theft. Thanks. Are you footing the bill or in prison Johnson ? If not, why NOT ? Fannie is such a nasty girl too.

Industrial espionage, economic espionage or corporate espionage is a form of espionage conducted for commercial purposes instead of purely national security purposes. Economic espionage is conducted or orchestrated by governments and is international in scope, while industrial or corporate espionage is more often national and occurs between companies or corporations.
