An Interview with Michael J. Schmidtberger, Partner, Sidley Austin LLP

>Of course, we have terrific >bet-the-company practices, which I refer to as our “tower” practices. These include trial and appellate litigation, M&A and private equity, capital markets, life sciences, investment funds, insurance, bankruptcy and restructuring, global finance, tax, and real estate.

>Nothing is more rewarding than being able to provide strategic counseling to clients, but regulatory capability is something that stretches across our practice areas and, particularly, in relation to our “tower” practices.

Information from http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/sidley-austin-brown-wood-history/ with my personal notes in (parenthesis):

Its specialties cover the full range of a modern law practice, from intellectual property and real estate to mergers and acquisitions and complex financial transactions (think money-laundering). As more businesses expand overseas, Sidley Austin Brown & Wood plays a major role in the world's increasingly globalized economy (think establishment of NWO).

In 1874 the firm gained The Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) as another long-term client (think access to children).

The firm's utility practice included incorporating the Western Edison Light Company in 1882, shortly after Thomas Edison developed the first useful light bulb (think competition to N.Tesla, destruction of Tesla’s efforts).

Meanwhile, the firm helped railroads to expand. It helped the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad lay the legal foundations for its extension from Kansas City to Chicago in the 1880s. For example, it set up land purchases or leases for the railroad, and continued to represent it until 1893 (think about all the crimes of the robber barons - slave labor, price gouging, ruthless business practices, drug trade and prostitution in the camps, etc).




In the 1890s the Chicago firm represented the Illinois Steel Company until it was acquired by J. Pierpont Morgan's Federal Steel Company. Morgan in 1901 combined Federal Steel along with Andrew Carnegie's steel company to create U.S. Steel, the nation's first billion-dollar corporation (think beginning of consolidation of powers).

With the 1890 Sherman Antitrust Act and other antitrust laws being enforced, the Chicago law firm defended its corporate clients against charges filed by the federal government (think fought to protect the TPTB rather than the democracy).

Although still a small firm, its solid reputation was acknowledged by Charles S. Cutting, a former probate judge, serving two terms as the Chicago Bar Association's president (think access to judges and manipulation of the legal system).

Under Cutting's leadership, the firm represented numerous prominent Chicago citizens in wills and estate matters. After Richard W. Sears, cofounder of Sears, Roebuck & Company, died in 1914, the firm worked until 1931 to resolve Sears's estate matters. In 1923 the partnership assisted Edith Rockefeller McCormick, the daughter of John D. Rockefeller, when she established the Edith Rockefeller McCormick Trust. After she died in 1931, the firm spent 20 years resolving disputes concerning her estate. In 1932 the law firm handled the estate of William Wrigley, Jr., who had started his chewing gum business back in 1892 in Chicago (think finding ways to protect and hold gains, both legal and illegal, in Trusts to act as slush funds to propagate the will of the few).




After graduating from Northwestern University Law School, in 1926 Adlai E. Stevenson became the newest lawyer at the firm. Even as a young lawyer, Stevenson showed a strong interest in government service and foreign affairs. For example, he served in 1933 as the president of the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations, whose national organization often was headed by top partners at elite corporate law firms. In 1933 Stevenson left to work for President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In the years ahead he would work periodically for the law firm and in government service, eventually running unsuccessfully for president, thus becoming one of the law firm's most prominent lawyers (think access to the highest levels of government).

In 1972 Sidley & Austin's 100 lawyers merged with the 53 lawyers of Leibman, Williams, Bennett, Baird & Minow. The smaller firm had originated in 1945 when Robert F. Carney, G. Kenneth Crowell, and Morris I. Leibman formed the partnership of Carney, Crowell and Leibman.

New clients in the 1970s included the American Bar Association and also the American Medical Association as it fought against the Federal Trade Commission having regulatory power over it (think access and manipulation of both the legal and healthcare systems).

3d89ce No.15164




Brill's magazine and the National Law Journal pioneered modern legal journalism by shedding light on what had been more or less secret societies. With more comparative information about large law firms available, lawyers then increased their lateral career moves to firms that offered more financial opportunities. In addition, increased competition for the best lawyers resulted from growing corporations and a multitude of new government laws and regulations. Thus most large law firms grew even faster in the late 1970s and especially the 1980s.

Sidley & Austin's rapid growth paralleled the expansion of the Chicago Bar Association. By 1983 the firm had about 400 lawyers. Meanwhile, the CBA went from about 10,000 members in the mid-1970s to 17,638 in 1983. According to Terence C. Halliday, the CBA in 1983 with 'its budget of $4.4 million made it the richest and biggest of all metropolitan associations in the United States. In fact, the CBA budget in 1983 exceeded all but four of the fifty-six state bar associations.' (think money buys power - why are all these lawyers supporting the Democrats?)

In 1983 former U.S. Solicitor General Rex Lee and Carter Phillips began to build Sidley & Austin's U.S. Supreme Court specialty. In the October 1998 ABA Journal, Phillips claimed that only the Chicago firm in 1983 was 'consciously and systematically pursuing those cases.' That was an important step, for by the late 1990s the Court had reduced the number of cases it reviewed and heard more cases handled by Supreme Court specialists (think access, manipulation and control of the country’s highest court).




Due to charges of legal malpractice from representing Lincoln Savings, one of the many savings and loan institutions that failed in the 1980s, Sidley & Austin paid $7.5 million to settle those claims made by the federal government. At least five other corporate law firms also paid large amounts to settle other legal liability charges from their work in the S & L crisis, which received extensive media coverage. None of the law firms admitted any wrongdoing, according to Ralph Nader and Wesley J. Smith in their book No Contest: Corporate Lawyers and the Perversion of Justice in America (think banking fraud, manipulation of the economy and how to manipulate the legal system to allow criminals to get away with it).

The Firm in the 1990s and Beyond

When Commonwealth Edison's exclusive energy contract with Chicago was up for renewal in 1990, the utility represented by Sidley & Austin attorneys demanded and received a secrecy agreement that prevented the people of Chicago from seeing any records the utility deemed confidential, although city government officials could look at them. After considerable political criticism, Commonwealth Edison allowed public and media access to most documents it had marked confidential. That led to the city renewing the utility's contract. Ralph Nader and Wesley J. Smith cited Sidley & Austin's behavior in this case as an example of how big law firms help corporations at the expense of average citizens. They argued in their 1996 book that the 'imbalances between real people and artificial persons called corporations are growing fast.' (think fought to make sure that a corporatocracy has more power than the democracy.)

3d89ce No.15166




In 1994 Sidley & Austin lawyer Scott Bass helped write the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act. Since that law did not cover foods, later in the decade some companies were adding herbs and other supplements to what were called functional foods. However, Bass said in a 1999 New York Times article that, 'It's not valid to have a box of cereal that says `Dietary Supplement.' (think establishing the “Big Pharma” agenda)

Other clients in the 1990s and after the turn of the century included Health Alliance, Amoco, and Citicorp. It also helped Microsoft's main outside law firm Sullivan & Cromwell when the software giant was accused of antitrust violations (think fought for the consolidation of power and to curb competition).

In November 1998 the American Lawyer, assisted by London's Legal Business, published its first rankings of the world's major law firms. Based on its 811 lawyers, Sidley & Austin ranked number 12. Only 5 percent of its lawyers were outside the United States, unlike Baker & McKenzie, the most internationalized firm, with 80 percent outside of its home country. Based on 1997 gross revenue of $360 million, Sidley & Austin received a number 11 ranking.

With Baker & McKenzie having over 2,000 lawyers and London's Clifford Chance having about 3,000 lawyers, Sidley & Austin in early 2001 faced challenges from other big law firms competing for the best lawyers and clients. Thus, as part of a consolidating trend, in 2001 Sidley & Austin combined its 900 lawyers with Brown & Wood's 400 lawyers who worked out of offices in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Beijing, Hong Kong, and London. THINK THESE PEOPLE WIELD REAL POWER AND THEY ARE FIGHTING AGAINST US!!!!!!

The only info regarding Rosmary A. Smith, Sidley Austin's single employee to have died in the 9/11 attacks is her previous jobs, all as a telephone operator.

>First operating job being for about four years with the former New York Telephone Company in Manhattan.

>She then resigned to give birth to her daughter and raise her.

>Ms. Smith later returned to work, spending eighteen more years as a telephone operator.

>Her first return at her operating job being at Georgette Klinger Health Spa in Manhattan.

>She then spent four years with the Northern Lights Department of Bloomingdale's, also in Manhattan, which specialized in selling cheap, consumer priced furs.

>After she finally landed her final step in her career at Sidley Austin, Brown and Wood.

A NYTimes article regarding Georgette Klinger Health Spa:


>She opened her Madison Avenue salon in 1941, and eventually had nine salons around the country. They quickly attracted socialites, movie stars and, later, movers and shakers like Helen Gurley Brown and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

>Hillary Rodham Clinton

I know for a fact things like salons and barber shops and the likes are one of the better businesses used for money laundering, due to the fact that it's highly client based rather than product based services. So you just claim to have far more clients than actually walk through the doors and, BAM, there's your front for dirty money turned clean.

The more I dig the more it looks like the entire US Industry was overthrown by Communist forces. Auto industries collapse, Fur trade gets ruined by Bloombergs economy furs, gold was taken away from the people by the federal reserve.

The final hope for a stable US economy is one that is built up solely on the control of oil and the sale of oil using the USD.

>A March 1992 New York Times article published during the 1992 U.S. presidential campaign reported that the Clintons, then governor and first lady of Arkansas, had invested and lost money in the Whitewater Development Corporation.

>Lewis looked for connections between the savings and loan company and the Clintons, and on September 2, 1992, she submitted a criminal referral to the FBI naming Bill and Hillary Clinton as witnesses in the Madison Guaranty case.

>David Hale, the source of criminal allegations against the Clintons, claimed in November 1993 that Bill Clinton had pressured him into providing an illegal $300,000 loan to Susan McDougal, the Clintons' partner in the Whitewater land deal. The allegations were regarded as questionable because Hale had not mentioned Clinton in reference to this loan during the original FBI investigation of Madison Guaranty in 1989; only after coming under indictment himself in 1993, did Hale make allegations against the Clintons.

I started researching Sidley, I thought there might be a Monsanto connection and Bingo! I remembered Obummer passed some laws dealing with Monsanto during a holiday time when no one would pay attention. Monsanto wants to have the ability to patent seeds so that we would all have to pay money to them to grow any of their crops, They want to make growing anything that is NOT a Monsanto seed against the law, which means you can not even save seeds from crops you grow, and their seeds are genetically modified to not produce viable seeds for planting the next year(deformed or no fruit set). Without our right to grow our own food they will totally own the entire food industry. Sidley looks suspect to me. Especially since michael and barry worked there, also wondering if there is a donation, money tie to SA. We know barry got his schooling paid for, wonder if they hooked him up with a job too?https://www.scribd.com/document/25539688/Monsanto-and-Obama-Admin

Prior to the merger creating Sidley Austin Brown & Wood, which took place just four months before the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, the head office of Brown & Wood was in the World Trade Center, while Sidley & Austin New York office was located in offices on Third Avenue. Out of 600 employees who worked in the World Trade Center at the time of the attacks, one perished, a switchboard operator, Rosemary Smith.

At the beginning of the convention, two position papers were passed out by the National Office leadership, one a revised statement of Klonksy's RYM manifesto, the other called "You Don't Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows". The latter document outlined the position of the group that would become the Weathermen. It had been signed by Karen Ashley, Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, John Jacobs, Jeff Jones, Gerry Long, Howie Machtinger, Jim Mellen, Terry Robbins, Mark Rudd, and Steve Tappis. The document called for creating a clandestine revolutionary party.

Since 2002, she has served as Visiting Law Faculty at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. Her legal work has focused on reforming the much criticized juvenile court system in Chicago and on advocating for human rights at the international level.

Later politics

In 1994, Dohrn said of her political beliefs: "I still see myself as a radical."[31] On November 4, 2010, Dohrn was interviewed by Newsclick India. About the "Right" in the U.S., she said, "It's racist; it's armed; it’s hostile; it’s unspeakable." Referring to the Restoring Honor rally which was promoted by Glenn Beckand held on August 28, 2010, at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., "You have white people armed, demanding the end to the [Obama] presidency." She also stated, "The real terrorist is the American government, state terrorism unleashed against the world."[32]

In 2008, Dohrn and Ayers resurfaced into news headlines as presidential candidate John McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin publicly denounced the ties between Ayers and then-presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Michelle Robinson, 25, had finished her first year as an associate at Sidley & Austin. Not long after, the firm assigned her to mentor a summer associate named Barack Obama. there was a lot of buzz about this 27-year-old prodigy from Harvard Law School. Sidley didn't usually hire first-year law students as summer associates, so Barack's arrival was noteworthy. Newton Minow, a high-ranking partner at Sidley, said that Barack was possibly the most gifted student that she had ever taught.

Between Barack's visits, Michelle would confide in Mary Carragher, sharing the tidbits she was gleaning about him. It was clear that she was now intrigued by his unlikely origins and upbringing. “I can't believe he's got a white grandmother from Kansas!” Carragher recalls Michelle telling her. “He was the son of a foreign student from Kenya and a white woman from Kansas.”

A few years later, Barack Obama would also spend untold hours in Gannett House, whose upper floor contained the offices of the Harvard Law Review. During his second year, he served as an editor of the law review, a much sought-after position, and then was elected the law review's first African American president, a signal achievement that would attract national media attention. The law review was a steppingstone to any number of prominent careers, including Supreme Court clerkships.

At Sidley, Michelle didn't follow the traditional route for new associates by doing general litigation or antitrust work. Instead, she was recruited by the looser, more fun-loving lawyers in the marketing law group, also known as intellectual property or entertainment law. These attorneys represented companies that sold goods to the public: advertising agencies, automakers, beer manufacturers. One of the clients was the flamboyant boxing promoter Don King, whose appearances always created a stir in Sidley's otherwise sedate corridors.

>[personal note] Interesting how she just so happened to both be placed as Obamas mentor AND placed in marketing law. Presidential campaigns are, when you boil it down, just marketing the product of a specific candidate, right?

The group went out of its way to give Michelle work suited to her interests. When an opportunity came in to handle the budding public television career of Barney, the purple dinosaur poised to become a phenomenon among American children, Andrew Goldstein says he and others felt it had Michelle's name written all over it.

>[personal note] Hahaha holy fuck, Barney was Michelle’s prototype project for Barack Obama.

Abner Mikva, a former congressman and federal judge who is close to the Obamas and was an early mentor to Barack, finds that account of Michelle's 20-something impatience amusing. "It doesn't surprise me at all," he says. Michelle is "clearly somebody who likes to make decisions and likes to be involved in exciting and important stuff. I can imagine writing memos for other lawyers – I don't think that would have been her favorite dish of tea."

In that sense, she had much in common with Barack Obama, whose political ambition was already very apparent to those who knew him at Harvard. They were both driven, both eager to have an impact. And they wanted to do it right away.

At Sidley Austin, it was clear to Michelle's colleagues that the couple were sharing their aspirations. Michelle confided to Mary Carragher that Barack was planning to write a book, a project that he would not embark on for several years. Even then, it was the opinion of some at the firm that Barack was presidential timber. Andrew Goldstein remembers conversations around the water cooler in which people would tick off Barack's accomplishments, predicting that a résumé like his could only be leading toward one place: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. " 'This guy's going to be the first African American president,' " he recalls one colleague declaring.

When Craig (Michelle’s brother) asked about career plans, Barack replied, "I think I'd like to teach at some point in time, and maybe even run for public office. […] at some point I’d like to run for the U.S. Senate, […] Possibly even run for president.”

Sidley offered Barack a job upon his graduation from Harvard and how Obama broke the news that he wanted to go into politics and would not be taking a job with the firm. Minow, who had served as chairman of the Federal Communications Commission under President John F. Kennedy, replied that public service was an admirable path and that the firm would do all it could to help advance his political career.

The year before they married, Michelle left Sidley Austin. There was no need for Michelle to leave just because she was marrying Barack. He was coming back to Chicago after Harvard, and she easily could have stayed with the firm. "As far as the firm was concerned . . . we considered it a real loss," says Minow. "We thought she was going to eventually become a partner and have a big role there."

Michelle resolved to live her own life. "I wanted to have a career motivated by passion and not just money," she would tell the New York Times years later. That's what Barack was doing. To Michelle's amazement, Barack wasn't interested in parlaying his presidency of the Harvard Law Review into a clerkship for a U.S. Supreme Court justice.

Instead, Barack took a less exalted job at a Chicago civil rights law firm, but first spent six months working on a voter registration drive, Project Vote, that targeted low-income African Americans. "We had many debates about how to best effect change," Michelle later told the Daily Princetonian. "We both wanted to affect the community on a larger scale than either of us could individually, and we wanted to do it outside of big corporations."

>Barack spent six months working on a voter registration drive, Project Vote, that targeted low-income African Americans.

Michelle was hired by the Daley administration, she was an assistant to the mayor, making about $60,000 a year. But Jarrett was promoted to head the Department of Planning and Development, and took Michelle with her. Michelle's new job was "economic development coordinator," which city records describe as "developing strategies and negotiating business agreements to promote and stimulate economic growth within the City of Chicago."

By 2006, she would be a highly paid administrator at the University of Chicago Hospitals, earning close to $300,000 as vice president of community and external affairs. And she was the wife of the U.S. senator who had dazzled the country with his eloquence at the 2004 Democratic National Convention and was being talked about as a presidential candidate.

As president of the Harvard Law Review and a law professor in Chicago, Senator Barack Obama left a scant paper trail. His name doesn't appear on any legal scholarship. But an unsigned 1990 article offers a glimpse at Obama's views on abortion policy and the law during his student days, and provides a rare addition to his body of work.

The six-page summary, in the third volume of 1990’s Harvard Law Review, considers the question of whether fetuses should be able to file lawsuits against their mothers. Obama's answer, like most courts: No. He wrote approvingly of an Illinois Supreme Court ruling that the unborn cannot sue their mothers for negligence, and he suggested that allowing fetuses to sue would violate the mother's rights. His article suggested that the government may have more important concerns than "ensuring that any particular fetus is born." And he concluded the article with: "Expanded access to prenatal education and heath care facilities will far more likely serve the very real state interest in preventing increasing numbers of children from being born[…].”

>[personal note] that “[…]” is just a lil bit of fun MSM contextual editing for you : )

Obama has never mentioned his law review piece, continuing his campaign's broader pattern of rarely volunteering information or documents about the candidate. The eight dense volumes produced during his time in charge — 2,083 pages in all — show the Review to have been a decidedly liberal institution, albeit one in transition as its focus on race and gender was contested by liberals and conservatives alike. Under his tenure, the Review published calls to expand the powers of women, African-Americans and the elderly to sue for discrimination.

>Under his tenure, the Review published calls to expand the powers of women, African-Americans and the elderly to sue for discrimination.

Eleanor Kerlow, the author of "Poisoned Ivy: How Egos, Ideology and Power Politics Almost Ruined Harvard Law School," depicted Obama's tenure as a calm before the storm. Kerlow said she “never heard anything negative about him” while researching her book. “Despite the political and ideological infighting, he maneuvered his way around pretty well.”

Obama’s duties included leading discussions and debates to determine what to print from the mountain of submissions from judges, scholars and authors from across the country, supervising the thorough editing of each issue's contents. Once a piece is set, the president also sends a letter or fax and makes a follow-up phone call to each author. Federal Judge Michael W. McConnell, who was nominated by President Bush and has frequently been mentioned as one of Bush’s potential Supreme Court nominees, recalls receiving one such letter and call in early 1990 for his article “The Origins and Historical Understanding of Free Exercise of Religion.” McConnell told Politico, “A frequent problem with student editors is that they try to turn an article into something they want it to be. It was striking that Obama didn’t do that. He tried to make it better from my point of view.” McConnell was impressed enough to urge the University of Chicago Law School to seek Obama out as an academic prospect.

Among the more interesting pieces:

• March 1990 — This issue, the first of Obama’s presidency, has an article by University of Florida associate law professor Anthony Cook on "the reconstructive theology of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr." The article ends with a theme that would later emerge in Obama's speeches: "With such mutual respect and openness to each others' pain, suffering and faith, we must work out more fully and struggle towards King's ideal of the Beloved Community and thereby hew from our mountain of despair a stone of hope."

April 1990 — An unbylined note titled "Rethinking (M)otherhood: Feminist Theory and State Regulation of Pregnancy" asks whether the state should consider the potential for endangering the fetus when pregnant women abuse drugs. The author suggests that the problem's positioning as a conflict between fetal and maternal rights is "both illegitimate and counterproductive" and concludes that policies should to be recast to expand, rather than restrict, women's reproductive rights.

June 1990 — This issue included five responses to “Racial Critiques of Legal Academia,” a highly controversial article published in the Review before Obama became its president. The article — written by Randall Kennedy, a black professor at Harvard Law — argued against the idea that legal scholars of color have a unique and at times uniquely valuable voice on issues related to race.

The first entry in the colloquy is prefaced by a quote from performer and civil rights activist Paul Robeson’s 1934 article “The Culture of the Negro” — "The white man has made a fetish of intellect and worships the god of thought; the negro feels rather than thinks" — and several quotes from the now largely forgotten but once highly controversial racial provocateur Frantz Fanon, among them: “If the white man challenges my humanity, I will impose my whole weight as a man on his life and show him that I am not the ‘sho’ good eatin'’ that he persists in imagining.”

November 1990 — This issue included perhaps the most conservative piece of Obama's tenure, in which Ronald Reagan’s former Solicitor General Charles Fried attacked race-based affirmative action, calling it "racial balkanization" that would "impoverish the human race." The implications of group rights, he wrote, are "sinister."

February 1991 — Obama's last issue contains one of its most sharply liberal pieces, a study of race and gender in car sales, which, the editors say in an equally liberal introduction, provides "evidence that seriously challenge faith in the ability of competitive market forces to eliminate racial and gender discrimination in other markets" and calls for more government action.

Interesting that the rise of Sidley Austin parallels that of Rockefeller. Rockefeller bought the University of Chicago in 1886 and from there established his beachhead into American education- the social sciences while funding think tanks to quickly translate "research" from his social "scientists" to policy.

The Rothschild's financed Andrew Carnegie, who financed Pullman car company, one of the incorporators being Norman Williams, who was one of the two founders of the firm that went on to become Sidley Austin.

I just realized, the reason for our civil war wasn't because of slavery (obviously), and it wasn't even an issue of free trade or protectionism. We had a Civil war because the South didn't have a banking system and lived mostly on barter. They would send buyers to England with their cotton with a list of goods they wanted in exchange. It was just the Rothschild's standard tactic of starting a war then opening a bank. Just a few decades earlier an anti-masonic party had formed which morphed into the Republican party of today.

While the war was ongoing, their boy Rockefeller started building his empire as a war profiteer. Rockefeller's father was a notorious swindler.
