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!


A Message from Congress: No One Questions Our Authority

(CNSNews.com) – In the history of the United States, Congress has never forced individual Americans to buy any good or service. That would change if the health care bills approved by either the House or Senate ever became law. Each would require individuals to buy a health insurance plan approved by the government.

Since Congress started debating these bills, CNSNews.com has been asking members of Congress: Where does the Constitution authorize Congress to force individuals to buy health insurance? The legislators have given a variety of answers. Some could give no answer at all. The video embedded here puts their answers back-to-back.


Obama Backs Down After Anti-Vegas Remarks

Fox News

LAS VEGAS — President Barack Obama is known for having a way with words, but some lawmakers from Nevada wish he would pipe down about trips to Sin City.

After sparking a firestorm of criticism from Nevada’s elected officials for suggesting that people saving money for college shouldn’t blow it in Las Vegas, Obama told U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in a letter that he wasn’t saying anything negative about Las Vegas.

It was the second time since taking office that Obama singled out Las Vegas as a potential example of spending excessively.

“I was making the simple point that families use vacation dollars, not college tuition money, to have fun,” Obama said, according to the letter released by Reid’s office. “There is no place better to have fun than Vegas, one of our country’s great destinations.”

Obama said he always enjoys his visits to Las Vegas.

A White House spokesman referred to Obama’s letter to Reid and said the administration had no further comment.

Perception and reputation are sensitive issues for Sin City as it struggles to find footing amid a two-year meltdown of foreclosures, bankruptcies and unemployment. Tourism is the Silver State’s backbone, and several lawmakers said they were shocked that Obama singled out Las Vegas again after commenting last February that bailed-out banks shouldn’t go to Las Vegas using taxpayer money.

“When times are tough, you tighten your belts,” Obama said, according to a White House transcript of his appearance Tuesday at a high school in North Nashua, N.H.

“You don’t go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage,” Obama said. “You don’t blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you’re trying to save for college. You prioritize. You make tough choices.”

The comments quickly sparked a flurry of reaction in the Silver State, which supported Obama in the 2008 election. Nevada had an unemployment rate of 13 percent in December.

Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman said during a hastily called news conference that Obama is no friend to Las Vegas and would not be welcomed here if he visits.

“I’ll do everything I can to give him the boot,” Goodman said. “This president is a real slow learner.”

Goodman and others are worried that Obama’s words will discourage visitors from coming to Las Vegas and depress the industry further.

“Enough is enough!” Democratic Congresswoman Shelley Berkley said in a statement. “President Obama needs to stop picking on Las Vegas and he needs to let Americans decide for themselves how and where to spend their hard-earned vacation dollars.”

Nevada’s tourism has been hit hard during the past two years as consumers everywhere tighten leisure spending and companies spend less on meetings and conventions.

Reid, one of Obama’s closest allies, issued a statement headlined “Reid to Obama: ‘Lay off Las Vegas”‘ and was unusually blunt in his reaction.

“The President needs to lay off Las Vegas and stop making it the poster child for where people shouldn’t be spending their money,” Reid said. “I would much rather tourists and business travelers spend their money in Las Vegas than spend it overseas.”

Sen. John Ensign, a Republican, complained that Obama “failed to grasp the weight that his words carry.”

“Once again he has threatened the struggling economy of Las Vegas,” Ensign said, recalling what he characterized as Obama’s “irresponsible” comment in February 2009.

Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons and Rep. Dean Heller, both Republicans, and Democratic Rep. Dina Titus also disparaged the president’s remarks, while Republican candidates hoping to unseat Reid this year called for an apology.

One year ago, Obama commented during a town hall meeting in Elkhart, Ind., that corporations shouldn’t use federal bailout money for trips to Las Vegas, the Super Bowl or corporate jets. Tourism and casino officials said the comment hurt the city as companies canceled meetings in Las Vegas and rescheduled them elsewhere.

Obama later said during a May 2009 trip to Nellis Air Force Base outside of Las Vegas that it was nice to get out of Washington and “there’s nothing like a quick trip to Vegas in the middle of the week.”

Goodman said he thought Obama had a “psychological hang-up” of using Las Vegas as an example of excessive spending, and that this time, an apology wouldn’t be enough.

“He has to step up right away and say, you know, he wasn’t thinking,” Goodman said. “Sometimes when he’s not using his monitors and reading what he says, he doesn’t think. And this is one of those times he didn’t think, and he should straighten out the record because he’s been here, he knows Las Vegas is a great place.


Tennessee: GOP’s Ramsey says he’s unsure of Obama citizenship

Chattanooga Times Free Press

ERIK SCHELZIG, Associated Press Writer

NASHVILLE, — State Senate speaker and gubernatorial candidate Ron Ramsey said Tuesday he doesn’t know whether President Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen, but that it’s not an issue that voters care about.

Ramsey was asked after a speech to a Republican group about his views on the president’s citizenship by Maclin Davis, a former state lawmaker and attorney for the state GOP.

“I don’t know whether President Obama is a citizen of the United States or not,” Ramsey responded. “I don’t know what the whole deal is there.

“But I’m going to tell you something. When you walk out on the street down here, people don’t really care about this issue.”

Focusing on issues like the president’s citizenship distracts from the Republican message on jobs, education and fiscal conservatism, Ramsey said.

“When we get off on sidelines like that, that’s when people say ‘aw,’ they close their ears and don’t listen,” Ramsey said. “I’m not saying you’re not right, Mac, I’m not saying you’re not right — but that’s not how you win elections.”

State Democratic Party Chairman Chip Forrester was quick to denounce Ramsey’s comments.

“Ramsey would rather pander to a far-right wing group of conspiracy theorists than govern in a pragmatic approach that most Tennesseans expect from their political leaders,” Forrester said in a release. “Why in the world would Mr. Ramsey even entertain such a ludicrous idea when our state is facing tough times?”

Ramsey’s main opponents in the GOP primary include U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp of Chattanooga, Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam and Memphis prosecutor Bill Gibbons. None could immediately be reached for reaction to Ramsey’s comments.

Theories that Obama was born abroad abounded during the presidential campaign, even after an official Hawaii birth certificate was produced, along with August 1961 birth notices from two Honolulu newspapers. Numerous lawsuits and emergency appeals were lodged challenging Obama’s eligibility to be president, and all were rebuffed by the courts.

The Constitution states that a person must be a “natural-born citizen” to be eligible for the presidency. The so-called “birthers” contend that Obama’s Hawaiian birth certificate is a fake, and say he was actually born in Kenya, his father’s homeland.

Davis, the attorney who raised the question after Ramsey’s speech, suggested that a lawsuit should be filed to force Obama to pay back the salary he has earned as president.

Even before responding to Davis, Ramsey acknowledged that he could be causing some unease among his political staff.

“I’ve got a table full of advisers sitting over there, and they’ll probably start cringing right about now when I start talking about some of this stuff,” he said.


Mirandized Security Risks

The American Spectator

Remember Greg Craig?

Before his recently announced return to the private sector, Craig was White House counsel in the Obama administration, and also the President’s designated point-man on smoothing the way for fulfilling an ill-conceived presidential campaign promise: the closure of the terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay by January 2010. It is widely acknowledged that the “resignation” Craig tendered in November of last year was the result of his failure to manage the difficult politics involved in shutting Gitmo down.

There were numerous indications along the way that Craig had fundamentally misread Congress and the American people on this issue. We were recently reminded of just how bad the miscalculation was: reports indicate that the administration will likely be backing down from the idea of putting 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed — currently held in Gitmo — on trial in New York City, because it rightfully believes Congress will not hand over the funds for such a misguided, politically suicidal endeavor.

But when it comes to Craig’s removal, one thing is more telling than Congress’s repudiation of his overtures. Craig was shown the door because of his failure to sell a bad policy that, were it to be realized, would jeopardize our national security and make us less safe.

Compare that outcome with the Obama national security team’s handling of Omar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian al Qaeda operative who attempted to blow up a plane over Detroit on Christmas Day. From the moment Abdulmutallab got on the plane to the moment he was Mirandized and allowed to lawyer up like a common criminal, key individuals with principal responsibility for preventing these incidents — Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano; Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism John Brennan; Attorney General Eric Holder; and Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair — proceeded to mishandle the attempted bombing and its aftermath in trainwreck fashion:

Complete Story:

HI Attorney General’s office refuses to corroborate Obama’s HI Birth


The Post & E-Mail

by John Charlton

Mark J. Bennett, HI Attorney General

— While political momentum is building within the Democratic Party from coast to coast to make the issue of Obama’s claims to be born in Hawaii a litmus test for its political opponents in the 2010 general elections for Congress, a key component in such a strategy has been undermined by the Hawaii Attorney General’s Office.

In correspondence with The Post & Email, Jill T. Nagamine, Deputy Attorney General for the State of Hawaii, has made it clear that her office will not corroborate or back in any way the July 27, 2009 Statement of Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii Department of Health, which declared Obama Hawaiian-born and a “natural-born American citizen.”

The stunning admission was made in an email sent to the Editor of this paper yesterday evening.

The implications of this denial are catastrophic for the Democratic strategy.

The Hawaii Attorney General’s office has the duty to prosecute the laws of the State.  Mark J. Bennett, the current Attorney General, was appointed to the office by Governor Lingle on Jan. 3, 2003. He is a former Assistant U.S. Attorney General for Honolulu, and a graduate of Cornell’s Law School.  Bennett is the first Republican to hold the office in 40 years.

According to published reports, Dr. Fukino has admitted that her July 27th statement received the verbal approval of the HI Attorney General, who “o.k.’d it.”

In an attempt to corroborate the contents of Dr. Fukino’s statement and understand better the value of that testimony, I put the following two questions to Nagamine, as a member of the press.

I am seeking some information in response to 2 questions I have.  Please understand that your response(s) or non-response will be quoted by our paper.

Q. 1: Does the Director of the Hawaii Department of Health have any statutory duty or authority to define the citizenship status of anyone whose vital record(s) are kept by that department?

Q.2: According to the legal references employed by your office, what is the defition of a “natural-born citizen” of the United States of America?

I put my question to the Deputy Attorney General to avoid putting the Attorney General in a situation of a conflict of interest, if he in fact, did, as Dr. Fukino claims, advise her regarding her July statement.

Nagamine, in response, asserted that any answer to such questions given by her office would represent a conflict of interest for her office.  And that is an explicit admission that Dr. Fukino had no statutory authority nor duty to make such a statement, and that the Attorney General’s office will not stand behind Fukino’s claim that Obama is a “natural-born American citizen.” It is such, because if Fukino’s declaration had legal weight of any kind, surely a response to my questions would have corroborated that without such a conflict-of-interest scenario.  You only have a conflict if the Fukino claim would not be supported by a Nagamine response.

In December, the Department of Health for the State of Hawaii issued its own dossier of excuses as to why they are also refusing to confirm, by documentation, the July Statement to Dr. Fukino.

Ironically, and quite oblivious to these developments, the Democratic Party in Tennessee issued a missive berating that state’s Republican Lt. Governor, Ron Ramsey, who yesterday publicly denied that he was certain of Obama’s birth-story claims:

Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey today questioned the president’s citizenship, offering further proof that the Republican leadership in the General Assembly is out of touch with real Tennesseans.
“I don’t know whether President Obama is a citizen of the United States or not,” Ramsey reportedly told the Nashville Republican’s first Tuesday Club after it was suggested that no one running for president be put on a Tennessee ballot unless proof of natural born citizenship is provided.
Mr. Ramsey would rather pander to a far-right wing group of conspiracy theorists than govern in a pragmatic approach that most Tennesseans expect from their political leaders.

Quite irrationally, the Democratic Party is now asserting an undocumented claim  as political “truth” and doubt concerning the veracity of such an unsupported claim as a “conspiracy theory,” which indeed is more evidence of the Party’s withdrawal from a Main Street notion of reality.

The Post & Email recently published a report explaining why the electronic image promoted by the Obama campaign of a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth is in fact a crude forgery and has been recognized as such for nearly two years.

In October, the Hawaii Attorney General’s office also refused to take a public stand on what the term “natural born citizen” means, raising further doubt about the value of any counsel offered by the Attorney General to the Fukino statement.

The Post & Email notes, furthermore, that the term “natural-born” is more commonly the medical term for a natural birth; whereas “natural born” is the constitutional term meaning born on U.S. Soil of two U.S. citizen parents.

Obama wants to expand DHS into an American Gestapo

Capitol Hill Blue

The Obama administration is working to expand the controversial Department of Homeland Security (DHS) beyond its traditional role of fighting terrorism, giving the enforcement agency broad powers over cybercrime, disease control, immigration enforcement and other areas of American life.

The proposed changes could turn DHS into a powerful national police agency with broad control — a move that some civil libertarians worry could become an “American Gestapo.”

White House officials outlined the proposed changes in a document called the “Quadrennial Homeland Security Review,” delivered to Congress recently but embargoed for public release.

The review expands the DHS role from enforcing four areas of terrorism-related activities to 14 areas that extend beyond terror threats and allows the department to become the primary federal agency when dealing with disaster relief, computer crime, “transnational crime,” border control, pandemics and other non-terror activities.

“Homeland security will only be optimized when we fully leverage the
distributed and decentralized nature of the entire enterprise in the
pursuit of our common goals,” homeland security Janet Napolitano writes in the cover letter that accompanied the report to Congress.

Former President George W. Bush created DHS in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the agency quickly grew into the nation’s largest federal bureaucracy. DHS quickly came under scrutiny for its broad powers that circumvented Constitutional safeguards of individual liberty.

As a candidate for President, Obama criticized the many excesses of the Bush administration in the so-called “war on terror” but at President Obama has expanded the role of agencies like DHS and the use of “warrantless wiretaps” to snoop into the lives of ordinary Americans. The President also backed away from promises to curtail abuses under the USA Patriot Act and now supports expanded the Constitutional threats posed by the controversial laws.

Civil libertarians have filed numerous lawsuits against DHS, seeking access to records on the agency’s intrusive questioning and search of U.S. travelers and for intruding more and more into the privacy of Americans.

“When the government searches your books, peers into your computer, and
demands to know your political views, it sends the message that free
expression and privacy disappear at our nation’s doorstep,” says Sharin Sinnar, a staff attorney for the Asian Law Caucus, a San Francisco-based group that joined in one lawsuit..

But Obama’s proposed expansion of powers of DHS is already drawing praise from the right wing. James Jay Califano, homeland security expert for the conservative Heritage Foundation, calls the proposals “an incredible achievement.”
