Obama’s inner circle and Iranian influence

American Thinker

David  Plouffe (rhymes with ‘fluff”) is one of the most powerful unelected officials in  the United States, “a key member of Obama’s inner circle, a confidant whose desk  is just steps from the Oval Office,”  according to the liberal Washington  Post. Plouffe is also a rich man, who got that way as a result of his  political activities, including accepting a cool hundred grand for 2 speeches to  a company deeply in bed with the Iranian government, a company which supplied  technology to the mullahs quite useful in repressing the Green Revolution in  2009.

This  looks very, very bad. And it is the tip of the iceberg on the (so far)  unreported story of  how the Obama inner circle of Chicago political  operatives have managed to become rich in politics.

Chicago Politics in Georiga

Socialism is not the Answer

The more I understand people, the more I like my dog.

Mark Twain

I guess they got to the Judge in Georgia but at least he still has his knee caps. Neither Obama or his Lawyer provided any evidence, in fact, neither one appeared in court. That alone tells me they got to the Judge.

With so much corruption and cover-up from this adminstration, you have to ask yourself, can anything stick on Obama? They got Nixon on far less.

The Danger That The Obama Administration Poses To America

 

Western Journalism

During World War II, posters displaying the slogan “Loose lips might sink ships” reminded service members and civilians alike to avoid indiscreet discussions about secure information that could be exploited by the enemy and used against America during wartime. People understood that freedom of speech did not give them license to spill their guts because national security was vital to victory and victory was paramount to America’s survival.

But that was then. Today, we have an administration that embraces a “Loose Lips For Political Expediency” philosophy. (No, I’m not talking about Vice President Biden.) Case in point: A headline I read the other day titled “SEALs becoming [the] face of Obama’s defense strategy.” Say, what?

The Chicago Machine Pumps Out A New Chief of Staff

Human Events

President Obama chose William Daley as his new chief of staff yesterday, replacing Rahm Emanuel, who is leaving to run for mayor of Chicago… a job currently held by Daley’s brother Richard.  It’s comforting to know there will be no net loss of Chicago politics in the White House.

The phantasmal cloud of “Hope and Change” that hung over the Obama presidential campaign required an astonishing degree of deliberate ignorance from his supporters.  He was, after all, a product of the corrupt Chicago machine.  The idea that he would somehow transcend the insular, carnivorous nature of that city’s politics was absurd.  Far from illuminating the White House with fresh new ideas and youthful idealism, Obama has hauled a string of Windy City operators and tired old hacks to Washington.

Chicago on the Potomac

Townhall

by: Michelle Malkin

 

No matter how you rearrange President Obama’s inner circle, it still looks, smells and tastes like a rotten Chicago deep-dish pizza.

Ready for the latest topping on this moldy old pie? It’s a possible chief of staff slot for Wall Street banker/lawyer/wheeler-dealer William Daley, brother of outgoing Chicago mayor/machine politics mastermind Richard M. Daley (also the former boss of White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and first lady Michelle Obama), whose retirement paved the way for former Obama chief of staff and Chicago mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel. Phew.

A SECRET HISTORY of Rahm Emanuel

The Freedomist

Rahm Emanuel

Who is Rahm Emamnuel and what is the real heartbeat of Rahm Emanuel’s life?

Born in 1959, Rahm Israel Emanuel has a name of the highest nobility: Rahm means “high and lofty”, Israel means “prince of God”, and Emanuel means “God with us.”

If ever a man’s name was ITSELF a case of “using the name of God in vain”, Rahm Emanuel’s name is in fact just such a case.

Rahm Emanuel is a man who embraces abortion, does not have any regard for the Constitution, has no higher aim than the profit of himself and his party and no greater ethic than “win votes.”

Rahm dances around the truth like a ballerina, in fact, Rahm Emanuel is in fact a graduate of a ballet school! Can you see him in tights?

Rahm Emanual is a close friend of David Axelrod, who signed Rahm’s marriage contract and whose ethics seem to be the same as Rahm’s.

Rahm Emanuel cut his teeth in the underworld of Chicagoland politics working for neo-Maoist organizations that were cleverly disguised as public advocacy groups, like Illinois Public Action, a bland sounding name for an ultra socialist group that sought to eliminate the free market and remove moral constraints from society.

While Rahm served in the Israel Defense Forces as a civilian worker in the first Gulf War, his allegiance to the anti-semitic elites that surround Barach Obama has made some concerned Jews compare him to a Kapo: a Jewish prisoner who worked for the Germans in the second world war. As advisor to Clinton, Rahm Emanuel “proudly” orchestrated the now infamous Oslo accords which presaged and which many say were the cause of hundreds of Arab terrorist attacks and hundreds of Isreali deaths.

Rahm’s days at the Clinton White House were filled with scandal, from cussing out Tony Blair to screaming “dead, dead” and plunging a knife into a steak as he recited Clinton’s enemy’s names after the 1996 election: any High School student who did this would be arrested today, but Rahm Emanuel serves such tantrums at the White House and there is nary a whisper.

While Rahm Emanuel loves to demonize bankers, you can be sure he won’t be returning the $16.2 MILLION he earned as a banker from 2000 to 2002, and he probably does not want anyone to ask how he could make that much money considering that he had spent his whole career, after being a ballerina, in politics.

Rahm Emanuel also served on Freddie Mac’s Board while all the accounting tricks were happening, but despite only officially attending 6 meetings a year, Rahm was given over $300,000: that’s $50,000 a meeting but Rahm Emanuel is not likely to give back any of those obscene profits any more than his new boss, Obama, is likely to change his mind about letting the public see what happened at those meetings.

While Rahm Emanuel is a pro Abortion extremist, and a gun-phobe who hates the second amendment, and a radical progressive extremist in his rabid hatred for the free market, in reality, Rahm Israel Immanuel is the opposite of his name:

Rahm is not lofty, as his name says, he is an underworld character of ill repute, his middle name, Israel, may mean “prince of God” but be is no prince and he does not seem to know God, and, of course, when Emanuel is with us it is not “God” but something else, something that smells of sulphur, that is with us.

In the end, any nation that would elevate a man like Rahm Emanuel to such a position of influence is in deep trouble!
