Obama-messiah’s very first act as president-elect was to choose liberal Democrat Rep. Rahm Emanuel as his White House chief of staff.
Emanuel is the son of Israeli-born Benjamin Emanuel, a former member of the militant (read: terrorist) Zionist group, Irgun, many of whose members are still wanted in Europe for their terrorist activities, including the bombing of the King David Hotel in which 90 people were killed and 40 wounded during the British occupation of Palestine.
Interestingly, the name Rahm means “high” or “lofty.” And of course, the name Emanuel means “God with us,” an epithet of the Messiah. So Obama-messiah’s new right hand man is apparently a man after his own heart.
Too bad all of those Arabs sent so many tens of millions of dollars to the Obama-messiah campaign, thinking they had it in the bag with what they considered one of “their own” to become future president. There’s no need to wait and see if Obama-messiah picks even a single Arab to work in his administration. He has already tipped his hand, and just about now the Arabs are beginning to realize they’ve been screwed, blued and tatooed by their favorite son, the Obama-messiah.
This interesting snippet is from the Nov. 22, 2006 issue of the Chicago Tribune:
“Emanuel is the political operative being credited these days with the Democratic takeover of Congress. He’s ruthless and hardworking and, in victory, deserving of post-election applause.
“But if City Hall had not sent Don Tomczak, the corrupt city water department boss, to Emanuel’s congressional campaign in 2002–and Tomczak’s political army of hundreds of city workers who stumped the precincts with the promise of overtime–then Emanuel wouldn’t have narrowly defeated a local grass-roots Democrat. And Emanuel wouldn’t have been in a position to bask in all the national media love.
“The national media narratives involving Emanuel and another Chicago Democrat, U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Rezko), have already been approved and written. They’re scripts to congeal the national mind, not to be deviated from in polite society.
“So you’re not supposed to mention the soon-to-be imprisoned Tomczak around Emanuel. And never, ever mention the indicted Chicago political Real Estate Fairy, Tony Rezko, to Obama, or ask if Rezko sprinkled magic fairy dust just as Obama purchased his fine home for hundreds of thousands of dollars less than the asking price.”
Obama picks Rahm Emanuel as White House Chief of Staff
WASHINGTON – President-elect Barack Obama pivoted quickly to begin filling out his new administration on Wednesday, selecting hard-charging Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel as White House chief of staff while aides stepped up the pace of transition work that had been cloaked in pre-election secrecy.
Several Democrats confirmed that Emanuel had been offered the job. While it was not clear he had accepted, a rejection would amount to an unlikely public snub of the new president-elect within hours of an electoral college landslide.
With hundreds of jobs to fill and only 10 weeks until Inauguration Day, Obama and his transition team confronted a formidable task complicated by his anti-lobbyist campaign rhetoric.
The official campaign Web Site said no political appointees would be permitted to work on “regulations or contracts directly and substantially related to their prior employer for two years. And no political appointee will be able to lobby the executive branch
