Top Exec at ObamaCare Website Co. was in Radical Black Groups with Michelle Obama

I don’t know if this is a smoking gun necessarily since we have yet to establish whether they kept in contact after Princeton, but it does add a troubling dimension to the question of why a company with a bad track record suddenly began receiving huge contracts from Obama Inc.

Including a huge no bid contract for the ObamaCare Healthcare.gov website.

First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is a top executive at the company that earned the contract to build the failed Obamacare website.

Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at Healthcare.gov. CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company.

Obama and Townes-Whitley both worked with the Third World Center and with the “Organization of Black Unity”.

Third World Center didn’t just refer to the Third World, as you might assume, but to radical minority activists in the United States who began referring to themselves that way. Princeton has since changed the name as an outdated relic of radicalism.

Michelle Obama’s radical activism at Princeton has been discussed in detail before.

Princeton, 1984.

Michelle Obama attends and promotes a “Black Solidarity” event for guest lecturer Manning Marable, who was, according to Cornel West, probably “the best known black Marxist in the country.” The event is the work of the Third World Center (TWC), a campus group whose board membership is exclusively reserved for minorities.

Michelle Obama was a board member at the Third World Center which means that it’s quite likely she knew Townes-Whitley. Townes-Whitley joined CGI Federal under Obama and some press releases make it clear that Townes-Whitley was involved in government contracts.

CGI Federal (NYSE: GIB) has won a position on a $900 million blanket purchase agreement with the U.S. Agency for International Development for information technology support.

The Fairfax, Va.-based IT and business process contractor said the potential five-year IT Forward BPA supports the agency’s IT reform efforts.

CGI has worked with the agency for more than a decade, said Toni Townes-Whitley, a senior vice president.

That’s a pretty huge contract, again for a company with a poor track record. And here’s an even bigger one.

The U.S. Department of Interior (DOI)/ Interior Business Center (IBC), Acquisition Services Directorate (AQD) has awarded CGI Federal Inc. (CGI), a wholly-owned U.S. operating subsidiary of CGI Group Inc. (NYSE:GIB)(TSX:GIB.A), a prime position on the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ), multiple-award contract for Foundation Cloud Hosting Services. The ID/IQ, which supports the DOI Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO), as well as other government customers including both civilian agencies and the Department of Defense has a total contract ceiling value of US $1 billion over nine years

CGI, the first large company Cloud Service Provider to receive FedRAMP provisional authorization to operate for a government specific community cloud, will support DOI-wide cloud hosting, data center consolidation and IT infrastructure tasks. CGI will deliver a range of services for storage, secure file transfers, virtual machines, database and web hosting, as well as development and test environment hosting.

“As a Federal cloud leader, CGI brings experience and innovation to the delivery of cloud-based services through this contract, enabling DOI and its bureaus to more effectively support their broad and important missions,” said Toni Townes-Whitley, Senior Vice-President for Civilian Agency programs at CGI.

It certainly seemed like Toni Townes-Whitley was front and center every time CGI Federal received strangely huge contracts from Obama Inc.

    It only goes to show ,you scratch my back, I’ll scratch your with oodles of case
    The DemocRAT party is rotten from it’s roots

    ““As a Federal cloud leader, CGI brings experience and innovation to the delivery of cloud-based services….” Yep. Lots of experience in concocting a major website that won’t work. Now, that’s innovation!

    This has to lead to a slush fund that will help D Party candidates win 2014, and to pay for an Obama institute for Peace or something in Hawaii?

  • ashlandalso

    I just did what happened to it?

    “…a prime position on the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ), multiple-award contract for Foundation Cloud Hosting Services.”

    I do believe there is a typo there. I’m fairly sure it should be, “…on the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quality (ID/IQ)…”. Seems more accurate.

    “we have yet to establish whether they kept in contact after Princeton”

    It does look like they did:

    How does everyone like the non-successes of this administration….they are good at one thing chaos, deception, and division! When no one believes them and they can’t pass laws legally they will do it through executive orders, or try martial law…the tyranny will progress.

    • Bill Gutmeiler

      56 key (non-partisan) indicators show we have recovered from the economic collapse of 2008. We have had 53 months of consecutive economic expansion. I’d say that anyone who has delusions about ‘non-successes’ of President Obama has been living in a vacuum or listening to some propagandists with anti-American motives.

      • Lanna

        You are delusional…the country has been changed and destroyed from the free and prosperous country it was…lieing enables the evil to destroy civilizations! The successes of Obama are destructive forces!

    still no msm coverage

    • Bill Gutmeiler

      Because it’s not a story.

  • Gaius Wickser

    Newsmax makes the connection. They were friends and both socially and professionally. No surprise.

    • Bill Gutmeiler

      Newsmax? A tabloid operation posing as a news outlet. Of course they make the connection. You can predict what they are going to print on a daily basis.

  • Bill Gutmeiler

    CGI contributed to the Romney campaign in 2012. This story will never float. Drudge and a few other right wing rags will try and push it but it’s a no go. CGI has its hooks into just about every federal department and has for years. Their vp’s and lobbyists are buddy buddy with the who’s who in the GOP so this piece of Goebbels trash belongs in the dumpster. Moreover, every politician in D.C. knows several vp’s in several companies who do no bid work-Halliburton for starters.

  • Bill Gutmeiler

    Well, this story was dead a few days ago. It has been scoped out by people who deal in fact rather than innuendo. The ‘umbrella’ contract CGI Federal has with HHS under which the ACA work was done was signed in 2007 for over $3 billion and lasts until 2017. There were no options for bringing in another agency. Obama wasn’t in office, nor was Sibelius in 2007. CGI built the portal, the agency that built the backbone that actually works with the exchanges is a division of United Health which has a good track record on its various web sites. So, you can’t make anything out of this non-story and the people who have knee jerk reactions to rumor should be ashamed of themselves.

    Everyone is missing the big picture here. CGI, who has failed miserably to deliver a viable website for ObamaCare, is contracted to support DOI-wide cloud hosting,
    data center consolidation and IT infrastructure tasks. and will deliver a range of services for storage, secure file transfers, virtual machines, database and web hosting, as well as development and test environment hosting. Why is an incompetent firm being awarded ANY of this work?
    Not only is private citizen information at risk here, but sensitive government information as well! Is anyone paying attention? There are factions
    bent on destroying this country and deals like this are making it easy!
