Why Indeed?

  • Between a still-existent worldwide recession and nuclear saber-rattling from North Korea and Iran, it's pretty clear that the White House has a lot on its plate in terms of international relations.

    A lot of serious stuff on the menu.

    So, why does President Obama need to add "seconds" to the plate by getting personally involved in the U.S. bid to attract the 2016 Summer Olympics to Chicago? The president is now planning on traveling to Copenhagen this week.
It's the final payoff. Or at least final for now. Obama is a product of the Chicago Machine and the Illinois Combine. Everything is connected by payoffs, contracts and positions (or didn't anyone notice how many ex-CityHall and ex-Springfield flunkies are currently ensconced in Washington). The Olympics is chock-full of all sorts of contracts to be awarded. Obama is lending his star power to Shortshanks in a last minute push for what might potentially be $15-20 billion in contracts and cost overruns.

According to this report, Obama just might be enough to put Chicago over the top:
  • Just five days to go before the 2016 Summer Olympic host city is announced, a report indicates that Brazil's Rio de Janeiro has taken a narrow lead over Chicago.

    The independent Olympic publication Around the Rings compiled the rankings and gave Rio a score of 84, just one point ahead of Chicago's 83.

    Other candidate cities Madrid and Tokyo are tied at 80.

Hang on tight.

I picture a video of Daley hip grinding behind a bent over unsuspecting Chicagoan to the tune of "That's What You Get for Living in Chi-Town"

Obama in Copenhagen is about payback to Valerie Jarrett, his puppet master, and SHE is beholden to Daley. Trace Jarrett's career; it's all about accelerated promotions and appointments at Daley's behest. None of the agencies (or Habitat) exemplify outstanding management skills - just double-whammy minority/woman affirmative action for a woman already born with a "silver spoon". (Upper-crust Jarrett lives in her St John knits, and is known for her pointed high-society social snobbery; she is not an example of meritous low-income student rising like cream to the top.) Obamas both owe their entire careers to the mentorship of Jarrett. Jarrett owes Daley, and Habitat is front-and-center in the "Olympic Village" component, despite their grossly incompetent track record in Chicago housing MISmanagement.

Jarrett needs federal investigation; oops, she's the fed itself. Even Capone and Madoff couldn't structure a better business plan defense.

I heard on the radio this AM that RIO sent a copy of the video of the student being beat to death to the Olympic Committee. I think they said they just heard it too. They didn't say where they got this information so I can't verify this.

Obama will probably get a cut of the money involved also. Remember that he loves money too. (Rezko, University of Chicago, etc. )

Fuck BHO he's another cog in the evil Chicago Machine. On the plus side Europe and the rest of the sane nations (Libya,Cuba,Venezula excluded) of the world are falling out of love with him. Places where the media is not subserviant to the White House call him out daily. In the U.K. they call him Barrack the Impotent.

The majority of the moneys raised by the Olympics comes from the American Television rights. They depend on advertising sponsors. If Chicago gets the games the sponsors jump on the bandwagon and buy commercial time. If somewhere else gets the games the profits will be no where as good. YOu do the math and see where the games go. "Show me the money"

I have to believe the fix ix in for Chicago to win.
Obama ain't going to Copenhagen only to be shut down by the IOC.
He has a lot of credibility riding on this and everyone touts him as the second coming of Christ..

He doesn't take chances, everything is scripted.

He will offer a major bribe to the IOC or provide stimulus money to back Chicago.

SecondCity I will come out of retirement and while wearing a full winter dress uniform (including Long Winter Dress Coat, white gloves, and winter hatband) I will bend over and kiss my own butt on that prestigious corner of 79th and Ashland while Rev Mike Pfleger films the spectacle if Chicago does not get the Olympics. The Daley/Obama Duo are going to get the nomination. Winning the Olympics bid is far easier than full contact American politics. Heck its harder and more of a battle for a PO to get an exempt star than Chicago getting the Olympics. I remember you guys were shocked, surprised, and mortified when the Mayor and Police Board selected Superintendant Weis. There is a far greater chance of Renault Robinson becoming Head of the CIA and Bernie Epton appearing on Soul Train than Obama/Daley not getting the Olympics. Modern day cops shouldn't worry about politics. You should worry about making your bosses look good and trying to line up a spot.

Daley's mouth could cost us the Olympics. Wouldn't it be just pure poetic justice if the dumb ass screwed the pooch all by opening his mouth? Just on the news, Daley was criticizing Rio in violation of the rules.

Go Rio!

A three person delegation for Chicagoans against the olympics is heading to Copenhagen. I only wish I could have contributed some money to their cause.

Hear most of Europe (at least France and Poland) is pretty pissed that the US had the over-rated 'ol child molester "Roman Polanski" arrested on a fed warrant. The Swiss are caught in the middle holding him in jail. This couldn't happen and a better time for us. They don't understand why now? Perhaps that this asshole fled the country when he was on bond and thought he was above the law. Well if it was my kid, even 30 years ago, I would want that asshole arrested and brought before a jury of 12.

Obama is going to pitch or acquiesce to the number and size of the pieces of the Olympic graft pie.

No other runner-up city, represents the cash cow, graft, fix-is-in extravaganza that Chicago and Obama offer to perfect.

At the same time, those deciding who is favored with the Olympics have a lot of juice if they can dupe Obama into believing they can influence the Iranian mullahs vis-a-vis Iran's nuclear fusion aspirations.

Is Obama travelling to cut a deal on foreign soil that was formulated in the U.S. during the International grand poohbah meeting at the U.N?

They all get a cut. All the worlds rulers and Aldermen.

They and us stick it to the people of Iran for however many ounces of Olympic gold buys off the mullahs to play dead for awhile with their nuclear aspirations,while the rest of the world leaders line their pockets.

Caution: The following message may be deemed too sensitive for the politically naive.
The 2016 games are a slam duck for Chicago.
All those people went there to celebrate it with the committee, and tell them how they are going to treat them real nice, when they come here for the games or whatever.
They are having a party right now on your dime, and you are not invited.
