The ties that bind. Remember Rahm Emanuel's rent-free D.C. apartment? The owner: A BP adviser
LA Times ^ | June 7, 2010 | Andrew Malcolm

Posted on 06/08/2010 6:10:06 AM PDT by ecsmceo

In case you were tempted to buy the faux Washington outrage at BP and its gulf oil spill in recent days, here's a story that reveals a little-known corporate political connection and the quiet way the inner political circles intersect, protect and care for one another in the nation's capital. And Chicago. We already knew that BP and its folks were significant contributors to the record $750-million war chest of Barack Obama's 2007-08 campaign. Now, we learn the details of a connection of Rahm Emanuel, the Chicago mayoral wannabe, current Obama chief of staff, ex-representative, ex-Clinton money man and ex-Windy City political machine go-fer. Shortly after Obama's happy inaugural, eyebrows rose slightly upon word that, as a House member, Emanuel had lived the last five years rent-free in a D.C. apartment of Democratic colleague Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut and her husband, Stanley Greenberg.

Special Report on BP plc, Citigroup Inc, Goldman Sachs, Nalco Holding Co.

LAS VEGAS -- The scale and carnage of BP's recent oil spill disaster continues to grow on a daily basis. BP shares have fallen 12% since the disaster. News organs report that several banks (including Goldman Sachs, GS and Citigroup), recommended buying BP shares. They argue investors are over-reacting since the April 20 explosion.

BP released news that it has tested the dispersants (manufactured by Chicago-based Nalco Holding Co.) and authorized it's use on a larger scale. BP also added it is looking for additional suppliers to begin manufacturing the dispersant material in mass quantities. SOURCE http://tinyurl.com/2cachel

Goldman Sachs Will Be Sitting Pretty With Emanuel in the Obama White House
By Timothy P. Carney, Examiner Columnist, Nov 21, 2008

EXCERPT Today, in these tumultuous times of bailouts and meltdowns when the investment banking leviathan needs Washington more than ever before, Goldman Sachs can leverage its most valuable asset yet White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel.

Traditionally a Democratic booster, and one of Barack Obama’s top sources of funds in this past election, Goldman has always had particularly strong allies in government.

Rahm Emanuel is one such ally. An interesting early chapter in the Goldman-Emanuel relationship took place in the setting of Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign for the White House. Clinton hired Emanuel as his chief fundraiser.At the same time, however, Emanuel was on the payroll of Goldman Sachs, receiving $3,000 per month from the firm to “introduce us to people,” in the words of one Goldman partner at the time. This is certainly a noteworthy relationship, but it’s one that has almost entirely escaped scrutiny. (snip)

In his four terms in Congress, Emanuel raised $74,750 from Goldman, making the firm his number four source of funds. Goldman has helped Emanuel. How has Emanuel helped Goldman? The most obvious answer, as mentioned in this column two weeks ago, is in Emanuel’s lead role in shepherding the “$700 billion” bailout—first proposed by former a Goldman CEO, Bush Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson—through the skeptical House.

Of course, back in the Clinton days, Goldman benefited from NAFTA and the bailout of the Mexican currency, with Emanuel pushing NAFTA through Congress, and Rubin hammering out the peso bailout.

Did Goldman improperly funnel money to the Clinton campaign by subsidizing Emanuel’s salary in 1992? Did Goldman’s help to Clinton spur the Democratic president to push NAFTA and the Mexican bailout?

The answers to these questions are opaque, and with Emanuel burrowed deep within the Obama White House, the continued relationship between Goldman Sachs and Obama’s right hand man won’t be easy to follow.

Watch which regulations of Wall Street Obama fights for. Watch where the bailout money goes.

FTA:

Greenberg's consulting firm was a prime architect of BP's recent rebranding drive as a green petroleum company, down to green signs and the slogan "Beyond Petroleum." Greenberg's company is also closely tied to a sister Democratic outfit -- GCS, named for the last initials of Greenberg, James Carville, another Clinton advisor, and Bob Shrum, John Kerry's 2004 campaign manager. According to published reports, GCS received hundreds of thousands of dollars in political polling contracts in recent years from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Probably just a crazy coincidence. But you'll never guess who was the chairman of that Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee dispensing those huge polling contracts to his kindly rent-free landlord.

Hmmmm. Was this during the same years that Emanuel declared his own house in Chicago the corporate seat of his "Foundation" (a foundation whose only officers and contributors are Emanuel and his wife) thereby taking his home OFF the property tax rolls?

No rent in DC (therby no tax contribution). No taxes in Chicago. Millions $$$ in the bank. Some people know how to live large.

OK, let’s connect the dots for all the sheeple.

1.BP is Obama’s biggest Doner
2.Obama Chief of Staff is provided a RENT FREE apartment by a BP Advisor
3. BP gets preferential treatment by the EPA and is exempted from inspections on the Deepwater Horizon well.
4. Deepwater horizon blows out.

IOW, a Quid Pro Quo if I have ever seen one.

Remember Rahm Emanuel's rent-free D.C. apartment? The owner: A BP adviser

Neither BP or Oboma seem that concerned about the spill. BP can just pass the cost of Cap & Tax on to the consumer, and Obomas Crime Inc. can still rake in the dough. The only people hurt are the taxpayers, so why should either of them worry? It's not like the sweat will be rolling off their backs.
