From Fixer to Fall Guy: Does the Blagojevich Investigation Threaten Israel?
The Policy Project ^ | 14 December 2008 | Patrick Gibson

Posted on 12/14/2008 6:08:17 PM PST by nysuperdoodle

It's looking more and more like Rahm Emmanuel may be the next shoe to drop in the ongoing Blagojevich investigation. The Chief of Staff of the "most transparent administration in American history" is holed up somewhere in Chicago and we still have more than a month before the inauguration. It's an inauspicious start, to say the least... (video)

Other MSM say Rham is not a target.

If that is true, why is he hiding?

He isn’t hiding so much as receiving his next batch of orders.

I’d like to read the transcripts of the conversation between Emanuel, who is Advisor A, and Blago and Harris. If Emmanuel played ball with Blago by presenting counter offers or any other quid pro quo, he’s toast like Blago. What’s said on those tapes FBI?

Actually, I’m more concerned if it threatens the United States.

Yes, I agree. Unless the Justice Department can prove that Emanuel was actively engaged in buying or selling a US Senate seat, I think they should concentrate ALL of their efforts on determining whether the Obamination is actually a natural born citizen who is qualified to serve as president of the United States. An attack on the US constitution of that magnitude will certainly trigger massive civil unrest and a collapse of allied cooperation on an international stage. Focus on the qualification issue to protect the United States!!!! Pimped you, Troll!!!!!

What I meant was that these actions, in themselves, threaten the United States, This is the most corrupt “pre-administration” in modern history. Your comment sounded like you were trying to deflect attention from the Blagogate matter to more “global” matters. Trolls usually try to distract attention from the situation to a more global problem.

I think this is very serious and is hurting our constitutional form of government. We need to prosecute this issue and, if possible, keep Obama from taking office. He is unqualified, both by birth and by experience, from serving as POTUS.

If you agree, we are cool. If not, you sound like a lefty trying to distract us from the real issue of corruption.

Sorry.

Well, what I was saying, newbie, is that the effect on Israel is second in my mind to the effect on the United States.

There's a lot of "troll calling" going on here lately, usually by people who haven't been here that long.

You've been here 3 months; I've been here 10 years and have contributed a lot of money to keep this going.

Look before you leap.

Very true. Like it or not RahmEm is one of a few among this bunch who has proclaimed support for Israel. As much as I'd like to see him gone, I shudder to think who would replace him.

I've been wrong on every count trying to predict the outcome of this elections. When O won, I came down with shingles.

Now I'm okay and looking forward to "Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol" as these geese clamber for the top of their pecking order.

At this point, why is Israel part of the equation? This has implications for the USA that are paramount to any foreign state.

Mark Levin mentioned this on the radio last week.

Of particular note is that none of the Obamatrons are on "Meet The Press," "Oprah" or any of the other Obamabot programs.

They have all been recalled by Obama for reprogramming on denial and deceit regarding the Blagojevich scandal.

The first and (so far) only comment at the site is right on the money.

jacob

It doesn't threaten Israel in the slightest. If Rahm goes down, that would be a very POSITIVE thing for Israel. Rahm Emanuel choreographed to handshake the Oslo accords, which emboldened the Muslim terrorists to do suicide bombings in Israel. Without him, there's no aura of "well they've got a pro-Israel guy in the cabinet!" and hopefull people will see the administration for what it is: completely and utterly anti-Israel.

I am more concerned that he came out of MY high school: New Trier West.

A stain on my memories.

“I am more concerned that he came out of MY high school: New Trier West.”

<<< Curious...Why would that be a bigger concern?

Also curious...Is “West” what is now referred to as simply the Winnetka campus? I’ve always heard it referred to as simply New Trier or Winnetka campus vs Northfield Campus.

Rahm Emanuel has not resigned from Congress yet. So he might still return as a Representive and forget being 0s chief of staff

Rahm Emanuel is such a hyperactive political junkie. He lives for this kind of wheeling dealing. Of course he was knee deep in discussions with Blagovich. Unfortunately Rahm Emanuel didn’t offer anything to Blago so there was no bribe or enticement

Howard Dean’s empty hand

[snip] Franklin and Marshall College political scientist Terry Madonna... argues against rewarding Dean for doing the right thing. “Do we give him credit for upholding his own party’s rules — he gets a reward for doing what’s right? This is not a profile-in-courage here.” Yet Villanova’s Brown is unsure, based on all Dean has done, why he does not appear to be moving into the administration. Republican strategist Kent Gates theorizes that this reflects “a total Rahm (Emanuel) block.” The clash between the two party chairs during the 2006 midterm election is legendary: Emanuel ran the party’s congressional arm back then and divided bitterly with Dean over cash. With Emanuel now Obama’s right-hand man, it makes sense that Dean’s name is not being circulated. [end]

It's not, but if feels good to say it! LOL

There used to be a need for a second campus due to the amount of kids. When the numbers of kids declined, they let go of the "west" campus and combined the schools again.

The war on terror is still paramount in my view. We can survive corruption, but not Islamic hegemony.

We are highly unlikely to succumb to ‘Islamic Hegemony’, whatever that means. Corruption is what is blowing up our Republic RIGHT NOW!
