And They're Off!

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel and fired Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy got the 2019 mayoral campaign off to a roaring start Thursday — with each man attempting to tie the other to President Donald Trump.

    “Washington is in a world of hurt. We’re in a place where our government is completely ineffective. And I think [Trump] is an incredibly polarizing figure — just like Rahm Emanuel,” McCarthy told the Chicago Sun-Times.
McCompStat lands the first haymaker though:
  • He even has a one-liner ready if Emanuel tries to portray him as a carpet-bagger.

    “Somebody show me that 78th neighborhood in Chicago called Wilmette. I haven’t seen it,” McCarthy said of the north suburb where the mayor spent most of his childhood.
So two outsiders fighting over the rotting corpse of a once great midwestern city. Should be a great time. And there are plenty of character flaws, missteps and behaviors bordering on misconduct in both camps. Quite frankly, we're hoping for a "scorched-earth" campaign.

McBoob is a shill candidate put up to run by his master Rick Simon. Rick Simon is part of the Rham clique. McBoob takes white votes away from a Vallas mayoral run. McBoob isnt getting any votes from blacks, Hispanics or white liberals, unlike a Vallas who could.

In defense of Mccarthy, he has to say he is against Trump or he has zero chance of winning. Of course he's playing politics but he has to with Chicago's demographics.

1. The working taxpayer works, earns, provides all costs of existence from their earnings, pays taxes and, occasionally, votes.

2. The not working, not earning, not paying taxes, still, somehow, having shelter, food, clothing, and that oh so vital flat screen, reliably votes, either actually in the flesh or by several, well known other means.


Were the former, #1, to fucking vote much more often then occasionally, it is just barely possible that the latter, #2, shenanigans included, could lack just enough in quantity of votes actually cast, to match their woeful lacking in quality, for the beginning of MAGA to appear on the horizon.

Two arrogant narcissistic carpetbagger running against each other. What choice do you have? We can't find anybody better than this? Somebody? Anybody? Bueller? Rahm will have all that campaign money coming in from Hollywood Ari, and the Clinton and Obama crime families and contractors. I would say give Garry a chance to get rich, Rahm has made enough for a lifetime. And besides Garry is taller than Rahm, but not by much! Since the Dems. have nothing to offer and have succeeded in destroying the Country they all have resorted to making Trump into the National bogeyman, it keeps the heat off of them.

Don't forget the $50,000 dollar donation Donald Trump made to Rahm's first run for Mayor! Both of these candidates have damaged the Police Department, but Rahm is actually the more detestable of the two, because he does not see himself as being one of us. Rahm is an Elitist, who thinks he is the smarter than anyone in the City. And Rahm lives in a different Elitist world, surrounded by sycophants from somewhere else.
The Lil Guy's penchant for exclusive French restaurants hidden away along the Gold Coast is an example of his Elitist mindset. You wont see Rahm eating a beef at Al's, unless he does it for a photo op. Hopefully, someone else with some semblance of credibility will step in, especially after the McDonald case. But at this point, I would vote for a potted plant, before I'd vote for Rahm, but not McCarthy. Baby "G"

Well... at least McNewlywed admits he's a Carpetbagger.

Though I wonder he realizes that Chicago's intrepid, award-winning journalists (rotfl), will likely be digging through his entire history in NYC and in the NYPD via FOIA requests -- and definitely NOT on Rahm's orders they will say with a straight face (LOL) -- and McCompstat's penchant for being Drunk while Armed and Shooting Out Streetlights will be all over the front pages of Chicago's newspapers.

But then McStreetlights could counter that and say: 'Well at least I've never paraded around the Congressional Gym's Locker Room butt-ass naked while physically threatening Congressman, or Stabbed photos of opponents while screaming; Dead! Dead! Dead!, like the current mayor has.'

And Chicagoans will say in unison , Uh...okay, is there a sane candidate running? (as if)

Can't run on stellar records. Failed and fired police commissioner. And a mayor who has given city higher crime rates, a fetal police department, taxpayers fleeing city, bad a school system that fails at all levels and is a step away from bankruptcy. Fine job Rahim but you will be reelected if all of the new ids you had issued for your illegal sanctuary friends are used to vote. Better hope there is not a Hispanic mayoral candidate. But the really big question to be answered is when did Rahim see the McDonald tape. Would Garry care to comment, probably not because he would be accused in the cover up. Come on Garry, step up and trash the mayor with the truth. You might even benefit from, finally a politician willing to tell the truth. Running against Trump will not get either one of you a single extra vote. your trying to sway the dumb Democrats not the smarter Republicans who won't vote for ether of you fools on a bet.

But DJT knows how to win and knows what rhetoric is needed to win.

Rahm is already having his Information Ministry doctor up a hefty scathing dossier.
All irrelevant nonsense stuff. Nothing of professional misfortunes, for that reason I would have preferred that Gmac had resigned from Rahm’s backstabbbing regime rather than being fired.
I’ll bet Gmac will do a good job tossing The Right Man for the Right Time ™️ under the bus for his dismal crime numbers too.
Good fun ahead.

I’m in.
I’d rather have an accomplished Tough Cookie™️ try and run this city than a documented former community activist, Washington DC obamahack.
Rahm has no platform, no accomplishments, no legacy for his 8 years too.
Kind of resembles his last DC carpetbagging mentor.
More spending More taxing and More crime, that’s it.

We have a mayor that will not stand up to The Trilogy of Non Stop Community Terror; PrickWrinkle-KimmJong-Evans.
Watching Gmac get the message out will be interesting.

Stay Fetal.

You are a fool or a tool to vote for either one of these hacks. McCarthy is in this race to dilute any votes, particularly white ethnics, from a credible white challenger to Rahm, like a Paul Vallas. If McCarthy succeeds in neutralizing a Vallas candidacy or other, he and his financial backers and supporters will be rewarded by a third-term Rahm. McCarthy and his cabal will be showered with jobs and contracts. McCarthy's team is significantly made from the 2nd and 3rd generations of the old 1st Ward (Paul Marcy, Fred Roti, John D'Arco) apparatchiks, and the Outfit's other ward political machine diaspora that have settled up north, and northwest. McCarthy can't lose. If he loses the race, but spoils a Vallas (or other serious white candidate) chances, he did as planned, and gets richly rewarded. If McCarthy somehow wins, the straw-dog mayoralty begins. Remember the Jane Byrne era. At least Lady Jane treated the police respectfully and rightfully.

To me, and maybe I'm wrong, the city seems to be making Downtown/Loop nice, while letting the rest of the city fall apart. It was the South, then the West and now bit by bit the North. What the hell is left? Cleveland, Detroit....

What is sad, and this is true for so many cities, the employment is overseas, "The city that works" doesn't and the crud keeps on pushing out more kids:most on social services: cocaine babies, crack babies, et al.

Labor is hardly a factor and the city is/seems left of center to this outsider.
Too, you're a "Sanctuary City"(Democrat) and "State"(Republican) if this is right:
http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/02/11/jeanne-ives-sanctuary-state-becoming-major-issue-il-governor-primary/

I heard an ad last night on "newsradio." Trump has nothing to do with the mayors' race, but as alluded to earlier, are people that stupid? You know the answer.

Trump, whether these idiots know it or not, will win again in 2020.

The only time you see these idiots (read: candidates) is when they need your vote, otherwise, you wouldn't get the time of the day.

Sorry for the long ramble.

Chicago Police Superintendent Gerry McCarthy Out
What happened in City Hall this morning...
Rahm: "You have to answer for LaQuan, Gerry. You fingered Van Dyke for the murder.
McCarthy: Rahm, you got it all wrong.
Rahm: Ah, that little farce you played with my city. You think that would fool an Emanuel?
McCarthy: Rahm, I'm innocent. I swear.
Rahm: Sit down.
McCarthy: Please don't do this to me, Rahm. Please don't.
Rahm: Today I settled all city business so don't tell me that you're innocent. Admit what you did.
[McCarthy starts sobbing]
Rahm: Get him a drink. Don't be afraid, Gerry. Come on, you think I’d leave the city without a Police Superintendent?
[McCarthy gets handed a drink]
Rahm: Go ahead. Drink. Drink. No, you're out of the city business, that's your punishment. You're finished. I'm putting you on a plane to Newark. John?
[John Escalante hands McCarthy an airplane ticket]
Rahm: I want you to stay there, you understand?
[McCarthy nods]
Rahm: Only don't tell me that you're innocent. Because it insults my intelligence and it makes me very angry. Now, who screwed up you or Anita?
McCarthy: It was Anita.
Rahm: Good. There's a car outside that will take you to the airport. I'll call your wife and tell her what flight you're on.
McCarthy: Listen, Rahm...
Rahm: Go on. Get out of my sight.

Did I hear correctly on CBS or WGN this morning?

McCarthy was not in favor of hiring more police (which would support our pensions) but is in favor of moving police resources from the North and Northwest sides to the South and West sides where they are more needed.

He never cared for us.

I can guarantee there will be two black candidates and two Hispanic candidates. A runoff between Rahm and McCarthy is likely.

3/23/2018 08:01:00 PM


Yeah...
Strip more paid-for Police coverage from tax paying
areas and lavish them on tax-absorbing areas while
Dude Inc. flees from increased Police presence in
tax-absorbing areas to migrate to tax-paying areas
so they can have fun hunting where The Police no
longer are...

Fuck this New Yuck L.E. gypsy m/fer and the poison
voodoo conjure he's peddling.

To even ARTICULATE this kind of corrosive thinking
is the epitome of tone-deafness.

He's on the same bullshit Rahm was/is on.

"Chicago devotes too much of the municipal
budget to The Police and WE need to put a
stop to it."

Yeah... Because the REST of Chicago doesn't want to
be inundated in seething, fast flowing bloody shit-mud
like Harrison, Englewood, Gresham, Grand Crossing etc...

Translation:
Lower your expectation of moving about
freely, safely, unencumbered and unmolested
on the public way or even in your very own homes.

The new progressive version of "equality"
is that you tax payers are racist in that
you're racist and spoiled for not wanting
to "share" some of your paid for Police
resources with "The Community" which is
adamant about wanting "Police" that "look
like them."

These adult children have no clear notion as
to what they want.

As long as they somehow get to put some
pain on the rest of everybody else.

And if there's some bullsh*t city law against it, he can have the City Council repeal that law. Or threaten to cut their numbers in half. Then cut them in half anyway.

This entire post...from SCC to most of the responses here is the exact reason we are in the position we are in.
You bitch every single day of how bad Rahm is. We all fricking know it. Everyone sees it. The command staff and all of our new civilian "command staff" are all of his people. The consent decree he is agreeing to is his decision as there is no statute that say Madigan can do this. Nothing. It would be illegal and get tossed the second it went before a judge, even a crooked Crook County judge. There is no basis in law for it. You see all of the contractual rights he has disregarded and all of the statements and (the FOP won't let you see the horse trading behind the table for our rights,) him taking away retired members health insurance (you will be retired some day too dumbass,) as well as the asinine statement of a "blue wall of silence" that makes us pay multi-million dollar settlements to shitheads and their families because he is too much of a pussy to testify. Yet you mock someone with some backing who was the police. I don't care how much of a jagoff he was or if he banged your wife. For you to say that he is worse for the city, and especially the department is fricking idiotic.
You see all of the shit going on. You blame Rahm. Yet, you blame McCarthy for all of the shit that happened, not Rahm? Pick one dumbasses!!! Rahm has never controlled this department more than he does now and no mayor before McCarthy left, INCLUDING DALEY ever had anywhere close to the control this dickhead has. Yet you bith about McCarthy...
Get you fucking heads out of the sand, see what is in front of you, and do every possible thing to make Rahm lose this election. I do not care of McCarthy banged your sister. Choke back the vomit and vote for him to defeat Rahm.....Our city needs this...

Use your head, are you a McCarthy troll. McNumbnuts was the tool by which Rahm cut the costs of the CPD and the cops and the citizens be damned. I go as far back on this department as Richard Joseph Daley and I sat in on Comstat meetings with McCarthy.

I fear that they will be in a one on one runoff and Rahm will win that. That because Rahm is The Machine and The Machine counts the votes.

Elections have consequences, how many cops bothered to vote in the primary election.

McCarthy doesn’t set the number of police. The mayor and aldermen set and approve the budget and number of police officers. No superintendent controls that. They do with what’s in the budget. Only reason we are getting more police is because of the McDonal shooting.
Federal government is telling the CPD what to do or they will force a consent decree. In their findings they stated CPD needs more supervion. That’s why they are making more sgt and lots, not because the superintendent wants the promotions

WHAT THE HELL DOES HE (RAHM) , or Daley,KNOW ABOUT RUNNING A CITY?
One was a bullying politician, the other a failed states attorney. BOTH of them destroyed Chicago. Don't be stupid.
Rahm was a political thug and bully that got his scrawny ass kicked out the White House because Michelle Obama hated him.
He repays this act by cutting the schools and staff one of the largest employers of black women
in Chicago-the CPS
Rahm is a scion of a wealthy Wilmette family. He was a clouted scholarship ballerina baby since the day he was born
Rahm is a multimillionaire buddy of Rauner, who helped Rahm gt his millions-16 million and counting, in fact, within a matter of months. Now Rahm is hitching his post to JB Pritzker so he can ride a bigger gravy train into the sunset.
Rahm was in the running to be the VP of Hillary Clinton, before Laquan.
Rahm brought us McCarthy
Rahm brought us Eddie JOHNSON
Rahm proclaimed that there was a blue wall of silence, and opened all police officers to lawsuits and punitive damages
Rahm brought us a consent decree , BLM and leftist socialist oversight, courtesy of the corrupt Lisa Madigan and Loretta Lynch.
Rahm brought us more discipline, more medical insurance expenses, bigger taxes , fines and fees, less police and city service,
The schools are a failure and more are slated for closure, crime is escalating despite the juked stats, Rahm tried to cover up the misconduct of Forrest Claypool and other clouted lackeys…
Rahm a been repeatedly voted, or pegged as one of the WORST MAYORS in the country, and you want to vote this rodent eating filth back into city hall?

From the Chicago Tribune , three days ago

"...Of the country’s 100 largest metro areas, only 10, including Chicago, declined in population. The Pittsburgh area also saw a population decrease while the Milwaukee metropolitan area squeaked by with a gain of less than 100 people, Frey said.

The Detroit metropolitan area saw a gain last year of about 7,000 residents, which is significant because it’s the biggest gain there since at least 2001..."

Nice seemingly reasonable suggestion.....only thing is.....it's exactly the suggestion that shill candidates are sprinkled onto the ballot for.....to scatter votes amongst the many, with the incumbents knowing that their minions' votes will be targeted precisely for them and only them. So old a tactic that, to some, it's new.

No Incumbent wants a 2 cadidate contest. Not one. Ever.

No Incumbent wants a strong opponent candidate, even with 3 or more weak candidates.

The number of candidates that make it onto the mayoral ballot will tell you just how worried the Incumbent is, and if that approaches double digits, that Incumbent is shitting, not sitting, as they speak.

The presumption of the Incumbent is that everyone who wants anyone NOT the Incumbent will be succeptible to not knowing, with firm conviction, which not the Incumbent candidate to vote for, since those wanting the Incumbent to NOT win will, quite naturally, want to vote for the challenger candidate who will make that happen, by winning.

Incumbent politics is like a horse race, with the horse having the least lucrative odds, the favorite, being the least attractive to bet on to win. Thus, more horses in the race, for the political Incumbent, means less likely for the Incumbent to lose. Only when a strong contender is in the race do the odds shift a bit towards a less feeble payout on the, now, more than one favorite.

Unlike a horse race, with the betting participants as the voters, in political contests, the Incumbent horse only has to win to be the only winner, voters are thus rendered null & void, until the next time.....
