My Grandma called it “short person’s disease”.
I am surprised that no one has calculated all the money we are paying those Czars and all their staffs and expenses ...
Taxpayers are paying those bills after all. I bet it’s in the billions.
Nothing like a little sunshine. These abuses need to see the light of day. Great work, Issa.
If we had them, we should not post them in public.
Say what? You obviously subscribe to the axiom that no good deed goes unpunished.
Rahm reminds me of this guy:
Tell them loudly! I believe the repubicans have found their set and are now starting to use them.
“Rahm survive the wrath of the copresident Hillary Clinton, and there are very very few who can make that claim. “
Of course. I have no doubt Rahm could handle himself in a B*tchfight.
Americans need to be very vigilant: Obama and his loathsome COS staff Rahm ("Uriah Heep") Emanuel are very calculated in their use of power. As dissent among the populace grows, they are capable of plotting staged events to boost their advantage. If these two arch-manipulators perceive there isnt measurable fear in the hearts of the people, they will create that fear to solidify their power. They know people will succumb to fear and will relinquish their God-given liberties when they are fearful.
HOW DID RAHM "URIAH HEEP" EMANUEL GET THE COS JOB? Keep in mind Pres Obama campaigned on installing a Civilian Security Force on US soil. Rahm surely got the top White House job as Obamas COS based on his Israeli training on how to organize a Civilian Security Force. ahm has been trained to organize a civilian security force as a volunteer for Sarelthe three-week Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) training program to train civilians. CIRCA 1991 Rahm volunteered for Sarela three-week Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) training program (like US boot camp) where civilians are trained to assist the Israeli military.
Civilians like Rahm lived on an IDF military base to get the proper training. s a civilian volunteer, Rahm assisted the IDF during the 1991 Gulf War, repairing truck brakes in one of Israels northern bases. Pres Obama campaigned on installing a Civilian Security Force on US soil. Looking at ACORNs activities, and the BILLIONS Obama has given them, ACORN is primed for (and is already acting as) a Civilian Security Force.
"I love this president. Under Obamacare's "Funds for F*****s"......I can get a high-tech penile implant----the Penis-a-Go-Go. Has microscopic cameras and remote video relays to wide screens in Planned Parenthood offices....to make sure Americans are using sanitary sexual organs....will save zillions on STD medical costs.
Dictatorships are almost always governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect each other from accountability.
CASE IN POINT --- HERE'S WHAT OBAMA SAID Obama "said" in the FOIA memo (below), The Government should not keep information confidential merely because public officials might be embarrassed by disclosure, because errors and failures might be revealed, or because of speculative or abstract fears. Obama added later that In responding to requests under the FOIA, executive branch agencies (agencies) should act promptly and in a spirit of cooperation, recognizing that such agencies are servants of the public.
HERE'S WHAT OBAMA DID Freddie Mac records exempt from FOIA (Obama Admin Denies Request)

Journalists Bob Secter and Andrew Zajac of the Chicago Tribune report that, while researching what went at Freddie Mac during the period White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel served on the government sponsored enterprises board of directors, they were unable to get minutes of board meetings and other information. The Obama administration rejected a Tribune request under the Freedom of Information Act to review Freddie Mac board minutes and correspondence during Emanuels time as a director.
The documents, obtained by Falcon for his investigation, were commercial information exempt from disclosure, according to a lawyer for the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Freddie Mac executives cooked the books, mismanaged the firm, and ultimately drove it into the ground, costing taxpayers billions of dollars. The commercial information exemption is reserved for private companiesFreddie Mac is by no means a private company anymore.
BACKSTORY Rahm Emanuel was director when Freddie Mac board was tipped to fraudulent BONUS schemes. "On (Rahm) Emanuel's watch, the board was told by executives of a plan to use accounting tricks to mislead shareholders about outsize profits the government-chartered firm was then reaping from risky investments. The goal was to push earnings onto the books in future years, ensuring that Freddie Mac would appear profitable on paper for years to come and helping maximize annual bonuses for company brass.
The accounting scandal wasn't the only one that brewed during Emanuel's tenure. During his brief time on the board, the company hatched a plan to enhance its political muscle. That scheme, also reviewed by the board, led to a record $3.8 million fine from the Federal Election Commission for illegally using corporate resources to host fundraisers for politicians. Emanuel was the beneficiary of one of those parties after he left the board and ran in 2002 for a seat in Congress from the North Side of Chicago.
The board was throttled for its acquiescence to the accounting manipulation in a 2003 report by Armando Falcon Jr., head of a federal oversight agency for Freddie Mac. The scandal forced Freddie Mac to restate $5 billion in earnings and pay $585 million in fines and legal settlements.
It also foreshadowed even harder times at the firm. Many of those same risky investment practices tied to the accounting scandal eventually brought the firm to the brink of insolvency and led to its seizure last year by the Bush administration, which pledged to inject up to $100 billion in new capital to keep the firm afloat. The Obama administration has doubled that commitment."
I know I have.

Exactly. Chicago style politics writ large on the national stage. Needs to be pounded home. Rahm is such a weenie.
He looks like Dr. Frank’N’Furter!
No report released on the mysterious Freddie exec death.
except, that was “a jump to the right”...
