The "Kiss of Death"

In the last election, hell, the last two elections, an endorsement from the White House meant almost certain defeat for the candidate. Let's hope he still got the touch:
  • President Barack Obama already cast a ballot for Mayor Rahm Emanuel and urged Chicagoans to vote in the April 7 mayoral election. ”I’m sure everyone knows I’ll be voting for Rahm,” Obama said.

    A picture of Obama sitting at a desk filling out his Chicago ballot on Friday was released Monday through the Democratic National Committee.

    “I’d like to encourage everyone in Chicago to vote in the April 7th city run-off election. Whether you vote by mail, take advantage of early voting, or go to the polls on election day, I hope you will make your voice heard. This is an election about big things: jobs, schools and safety.
Really?

Jobs like all those that are fleeing for the suburbs and out-of state?

Schools like the 50 that Rahm closed, mostly in the black community, without any input from the people and without any clear plan except to sell the land to Rahm's buddies or open charter schools with (again) Rahm's buddies?

Safety like that burgeoning homicide count? And the shootings that are up in every single district this year except 012?

Based on those metrics alone, Rahm should lose.

Funny thing is OBAMAS vote is worth the same as the piss bum i rounded up to vote for CHUY.

plus the 4 absentee votes for my out of country relatives.

Dr. deans vote and endorsement mean little if FOP provides no cash or manpower for RAHM.

Well said scc. Still voting against rahm here.We know his evil and he has failed miserably. Everyone says chuy is an idiot and we are worse off but i say we should give him a chance to fail before condemning him. Rahm has already shown his true colors and theyre ugly.

Chuy is a joke and old school HDO. The Bridgeport democrats back him. You wouldn't vote for Daley, why would you be a moron and vote for Chuy? I would actually love to see Rahm ousted, but not by this clueless man. Hopefully a better candidate will run in four years, until then, Rahm really is the lesser of two evils.

Progressives are heavy into Garcia. The Daily Kos, Democracy for America Howard Dean, MoveOn Chicago, Green Party, SEIU, Teachers Union, etc all progressives endorse Garcia. Progressives are the next step to socialists. Voting for Garcia is tantamount to signing your own and your children's future away to that of reaching the socialist utopia.

Voting for Rahm is not much better except Rahm doesn't want to flip society upside down like Garcia does. Rahm like being an elitist.

Neither candidate has any idea on how to fix the pension problem other than to penalize those who have contributed and the retirees by diminishing their in by stating that all the stake holders have to be willing to sacrifice for the good of the collective least there be no pension left. So boys and girls be prepared to pay more into the pension and get less out, while your aldermen, mayor and other public officials walk away with full pensions and bennies.

We are so fucked with either candidate.

Not defending Rahm, but how could anyone justify keeping schools open that had 4 floors in the building, but only 2floors open because of the lack of students.

Closing underutilized buildings because the bodies aren't in the neighborhood anymore to keep them filled saves MY MONEY..

We have plenty of ammo to fuck with Rahm, but he was right on that point.

VOTE OUT Mary O'Connor if you want to really send a message, a police hater as well as a Rahm YesMan

historically low enrollments and high cost to repair the crumbling buildings sounds like a legit reason to close schools.
also, charter schools are much easier to manage, especially in the ghetto. a fight in a small charter school is easier to deal with than a brawl at a 3000 student high school that could turn into a riot in seconds.

Like Obama, he still has his cheerleaders, although when put to task, they cannot really defend him. I can kind of understand the Progressive religion that defends Obama. I just cannot understand any Rahm defenders.

President Obama needs to come to Chicago to personally campaign for Rahm next week. He should show up for a breakfast event, and stay around to have 2 or 3 events from 1 pm to 7 pm in widely differing parts of the city. That way he can really mess up commutes for everyone in Chicago.

That will get out the vote for Rahm!

Is he for real , how about books,computers , people can learn in schools without air , another waste of taxpayer money . Many private schools do not have air and children do just fine learning . His way of tricking the black people with our tax dollar isn't working anymore . Kids are gunned down to often on his watch and the crocodile tears won't get him any black votes .

Apparently it is very important for the 1%-ers from all over the nation to keep one Rahm Emanuel's maniacal little shitty-ass ensconced in the seat of municipal power in Chicago...

(It's as if Chicago is the laboratory/proving ground for some fucked up social/financial/political theory that was war-gamed by the fine bastions of liberal learning.)

These are the same people who so openly mock and deride Chicago (plus the North-Central and Mid-Western part of this nation) as "Fly-Over Country."

For the 1%-er self styled trend setters and those who harbor delusions of, "Fly-Over Country" is inhabited by unintelligent, non-politically savvy, uninformed, intellectually disinterested rural hicks, reactionary socially/politically conservative blue collar churls and democrat run urban centers teeming with hyper-violent, death worshipping, willfully ignorant adult children catered to constituents.

Those catered to constituents serve as a useful political and economic weapon against those reactionary socially/politically conservative blue collar churls who don't/won't buy into the corrosive, deeply flawed social engineering/multi-cultural, false-flag narrative of inclusion and fairness to be achieved only by punishing/taking from those who actually worked to have something - progressive agenda.

You know...
That feverish prog-tard shit about YOU being "rich" and being able to ride the razor's edge of income/asset redistribution because you have a job, some savings and a home...

Y'all buying guns and ammo yet?
These fuckers have gamed the ballot box
so it might be more than a notion to prepare
to contest this foolishness via the bullet box.

Just sayin'...

"WAH! You Cops aren't allowed to think like THAT!"

Y'all upright citizens are being targeted because those who make up Daley Inc. and Rahm & Co. have war-gamed your tendency to be nice and mind your business along with your desire to be left alone.

Translation:

Decent people are deemed to be reluctant to get angry and fight these m/fers like Rahm back...

Heh...

And everybody looks aghast at these dispatches by Policemen from the bloody shit-mud of Chicago's streets and alleys that you have to take up hatred and and other such to provide a hard check against m/fers who have demonstrated that your decency, civility and sense of fair play mean dick-all to them.

They plan to run the societal and financial tables on you, your children and grandchildren.

You worked your asses off and they're waving non-contributing muthafuckahs in line in front of you because they see that you're not going along with what they're pushing.

And when decent people dig their heels in, these fuckers trot out the usual bad actors to make false flag accusations...

First name, "Anti-..."
Last name? A meme...
Some kinda fucked up false-flag, propaganda sourced "-ism" of the day or some such...

"Y'all racist for fightin' back an' shit.
Give us more of your money an' we'll
go away..."

And other such...

Get mean.
Get mad.

Do not ignore your hard wired instinct
in the name of being seen as non-threatening, accommodating and "playing nice with others."

Society turned topsy-turvy when 1%-ers, prog-tard shit-asses and their allied non-contributor hordes stride free and easy like natural men while those who pay the freight are made to step aside, humbly genuflect and meekly bemoan their loss of place in the societal order.

"You guys are just angry because it isn't 1960 anymore!"

Learn to hate and fight these m/fers who want to see you and yours destroyed in the name of THEIR agenda.

While Chicago goes bankrupt possibly, rahm has us downgraded at least 5X and Obama offers no money! Let's look at where President George Bush lived in Texas! The presidents town was flush with cash, wonder where obama is putting his discretionary billions? Probably in the place he will live when he is finally gone from the white house! How can anyone that Is not rich vote for rahm? I see the rahm signs in garfield ridge but not many thank God, guess even though the precinct captain pushed for signs many smart people are not taking them or just throwing them where they belong in the garbage can! Was driving and noticed that pathetic we support rahm firefighters van, what a bunch of panderers, what did rahm promise them? Whatever he promised rahm lies watch and see what he does he is very spiteful!

To the people saying rahm is better with city finances that chuy really the public schools bonds just got downgraded which will cost us the taxpayers about a "billion more" and with the city finances downgraded numerous times under rahm he is going to bankrupt this city or at least attempt to! Why do you think all the billionaires like pathetic ken Griffith gave him so much money, Griffith is a man who could not even support his wife and kids, he has the means billions of dollars but refuses to do the right thing! The reason the 1% give so much to 1% rahm is because any money deals are given to them, you can bet they are apps armed when rahm loses and chug dies his audit of city theft from finances the federal bus will be crowded and the first seat goes to the guy who talks and goes free! Want to bet the FBI and U.S. Attorney Fardon are waiting till after the election and until we get a President in the White House that supports them to unleash the fury and they will need several busses to march these thieves into the federal building but we will be glad to help them load up the busses!

The Sun-Times Watchdog column on Monday outlined the finances of the main Chicago mayoral contenders. Frontrunner Rahm Emanuel made a bundle leveraging his government connections when he went from the Clinton White House to the private sector, the basis of the fortune the Watchdogs reported on in their Monday column.

When Emanuel first ran for the House in 2002, he was casting himself as a populist and he worried that voters might be turned off by his mega million salary, so he tested whether there was a backlash in a focus group.

Emanuel made $6,491,000 in 2001 as a managing director of Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein. One of Emanuel's clients was Loral Inc., whose CEO, Bernard Schwartz, has been one of the Democratic Party's biggest donors. Another Emanuel client was Slim-Fast, whose founder S. Daniel Abraham, has been another giant Democratic donor.

Emanuel's official biographies have always been selective about his job history: most bios even skip that he was a member of the Chicago Housing Authority Board, a curious omission for someone running for Chicago mayor. Emanuel rarely brings up--his rivals do --his boondoggle service on the quasi-governmental Freddie Mac board, which paid him $231,655 in director's fees in 2001 and $31,060 in 2000. Former President Clinton appointed Emanuel to Freddie Mac.

Also never noted: Young and Rubicam, the ad agency, named Emanuel to its advisory board and paid him $128,500 and $124,750 over two years in the early 2000's. Emanuel in 1999 joined the board of Rxdrugstore.com, Beautyjungle.com and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

Below, columns I wrote about Emanuel's finances in 2002 and 2003:

Pretty funny, can you name even one, "police hater" action Mary has ever taken? Why would you come on here every day and spread lies to your fellow officers? I do remember when Mary introduced a bill to get our retro when Shields fucked up. If you live in Norwood, Edison or Edgebrook, you know that for over 20 years, long before being a politician, she has been a decent person who made these community’s better.
On the other hand, Napolitano has no community involvement at all. No involvement in Juliana, not even coaching one of his kid’s teams. I hear he’s an alright guy, but I question his judgment, why would Napolitano have Brian Doherty, a civic embarrassment, running his campaign from a bar stool? Where was Doherty when our pensions were getting fucked up? parking meter deal? He voted with Daley 100% of the time and now he is going to be calling the shots if Napolitano wins?

Rahm is running against someone voters are not sure can handle the job, so, we are in the hard rock against a hard place situation.

3/31/2015 05:28:00 PM

And Garcia is running against someone who has already PROVEN he can't handle the job.
No rock or hard place decision here; Rahm needs to move on out of here.

Look at it this way, we had 22 years of the absolute worst low IQ dunce of a thieving conniving corrupt Mayor any of us have experienced in our lifetimes: Richard M Daley. We are still here, a bit battered and in lousy financial straits. Can Chewey be worse than Daley?

The only person(s) who might be worse than Richy Daley might be his brother John or son Patrick. Chewey isn't them.

On the WGN news this AM, a Rahm commercial featured retired CPD Sgt. Milton Dixon. Very skewed. Who is this guy and what was his history OTJ?



Retired out of 002 a while back. He was pretty decent.

Well Rahm and his propeller-head whiz kids must have something on Ol' Sarge that "compelled" him to cut this fucked up campaign ad.

And as an aside...

Peep the new "Rahm Love" ads featuring F/1's of "certain age."

Rahm's Propeller-Head Whiz Kids must've focus grouped this foolishness and are trying to make inroads on the F/1 of certain age demographic...

>The following is a public service announcement<

Rahm said:
"Fuck you, Lewis!"
(And don't you forget it!)

Rumor was that Mistuh Lewis sorely wanted to
kick a pocket in you-know-who's narrow ass.

Rahm Emanuel is a poseur poot-butt trying to make like a Chicago "tuff-guy."

The missing digit hobgoblin has a BIG and CLEARLY discernable personal problem with F/1's in positions of some authority.

The reason he's an ongoing affliction to Chicago is because he openly disrespected/shit-talked FLOTUS and presidential adviser and bff Jarrett.

Big. Fucking. No-No.
No m/f-ing glorified, swindling-ass, luck of the very Devil, middle-man is THAT indispensable.

"Jump or get pushed m/fer!"
Lol at the mental image of a White House conference room with flipped tables, busted windows and chairs embedded in the walls as Mistuh (soon to be former) Chief of Staff is climbing the fucking curtains trying to escape the wrath...

WHOOO!
That stolen human skin must be itching something
FIERCE right about now.

BTW...
Shit in and piss at those ginned-up poll numbers local media is touting.

If he was polling THAT fucking good, he wouldn't be cutting those desperate, pandering-assed commercials.

07 April 2015
Strike a blow against Rahm and those dirty, collusive, criminal, money conjuring fucks who are trying desperately to keep him in office so THEY can steal all of what Daley left behind.

This is OUR city!
Not THEIRS!

We CAN take it back and make it BETTER!

A course of correction that doesn't center on punishing working people, neglecting their neighborhoods or withholding their PAID FOR share of city services as part of a cynically pandering political agenda.

NOT VOTING

I can't do it....I WON'T do it.

Not voting for democrats, liberals, or social progressives.

3/31/2015 10:15:00 AM


So what you are saying is that you are too lazy to vote or too stupid to vote for the lesser of two evils? That is a normal election in Chicago, the lesser of two evils. Does anybody remember being excited about voting for someone in Chicago? I can't.

OK, let the rest of the morons decide your fate.

" VOTE OUT Mary O'Connor if you want to really send a message, a police hater"
-------------
Pretty funny, can you name even one, "police hater" action Mary has ever taken? Why would you come on here every day and spread lies to your fellow officers? I do remember when Mary introduced a bill to get our retro when Shields fucked up. If you live in Norwood, Edison or Edgebrook, you know that for over 20 years, long before being a politician, she has been a decent person who made these community’s better.
Really!
It was not a bill it was a non-binding referendum that cost her nothing but gave the appearance she was concerned about the police, strictly a political move with no downside and no teeth because it was not a bill and could not become law.
Speaking of bills she has offered nothing in the way of a bill in her 4 years as a alderman. We want our alderman introducing meaningful legislation to help the working class, instead of voting 100% of the time for the ideas that the mayor comes up with that only benefit the top or bottom of the wage earners. Rahm claimed to not have raised property taxes but mysteriously my tax bill has gone up 10% for 2012 and 2013 since he has been in office.
On pensions:
Chicago Police and Firefighters have also have been stripped of 65% of their social security benefits even though they paid in the same as everyone else. They were promised a simple COLA by the City of Chicago of 3.50% non-compounding but the city reneged on this promise failing to award this benefit to those officers and firefighters who are now retired and born after 1955. Police and fire has just recently agreed to pension reforms where newly hired officers have to work longer for less of a pension benefit. If I hear another politician like Mary O'Conner say "Pensioners have to give a Little" or "COLA's need to be adjusted to the cost of living" or "I will not approve property tax increases until there is reform" like she said on the channel 11 debate I'm going to explode. All these politicians spout off and know nothing of the theft, concessions and abuse police and firefighters have experienced with their pension fund. Typical response from a part time alderman.

Rahm never took 1500 Asian , Caucasian , Mexican women to a free lunch downtown . Looks like buying votes from black ladies is ok . Maybe he should think before shouts the f word at black ladies . Let 's hope they don't fall for it .
Let's hope all the other women of different races remember that when they vote for Chuy .

Nope. Not cute. Never.
Tens upon thousands of people died for your right to live in a free country and for your ability to vote for a peaceful exchange of power every four years.

You demean yourself and you spit in the face of every family whose loved ones died for that right when you play children's games with your vote.

We have to change pension. No gold braid pensions and all police officers retire at rank before a merit promotion .
Raise minimum age to collect a pension to 57 , at 58 I plan on working until 63 . Cola should be started at age of mandatory retirement and compounded . If cpd raised mandatory retirement to 65 I'll be there , straight days , good furloughs , making $100k a year , not a bad job .
