Emanuel Vows He’ll Prevail in Fight to Be on Chicago Ballot
Monday, 24 Jan 2011 01:24 PM
CHICAGO — An Illinois Appeals Court has ruled that Rahm Emanuel’s name can’t appear on the ballot for Chicago mayor because he didn’t live in the city in the year before the election.
The judges voted 2-1 on Monday to overturn a lower court ruling to keep Emanuel’s name on the Feb. 22 ballot.
Those challenging Emanuel have said the White House chief of staff did not meet a residency requirement because he lived in Washington and not Chicago when he worked for President Barack Obama. Emanuel has said he always intended to return to Chicago and was living in Washington only at the request of the president.
Emanuel told reporters on Monday that the ruling is just one turn in the road and that he undoubtedly will prevail in the fight to be on the ballot.

CHICAGO – Illinois’ highest court agreed Tuesday to decide whether Rahm Emanuel can run for Chicago mayor, and justices ordered election officials not to print any ballots without his name until they rule on the case.
The action bought valuable time for the former White House chief of staff, who a day earlier was kicked off the ballot by an appeals court. The state Supreme Court said it would expedite the matter but gave no specific time frame.

Ill. high court: Emanuel can run for Chicago mayor

CHICAGO – Illinois’ highest court put Rahm Emanuel back in the race for Chicago mayor Thursday, three days after a lower court threw the former White House chief of staff off the ballot because he had not lived in the city for a full year.
The state Supreme Court ruled unanimously in Emanuel’s favor, saying an appeals court decision that said the candidate needed to be physically present in Chicago was “without any foundation in Illinois law.”
“As I said from the beginning, I think the voters deserve the right to make the choice of who should be mayor,” Emanuel said shortly after getting word of the high court’s action. “I’m not quite sure emotionally where I’m at….
…”I’m relieved for the city. I’m relieved for the voters because they need the certainty that’s important for them.”
Emanuel lived for nearly two years in Washington working for President Barack Obama. He moved back to Chicago in October, after Mayor Richard M. Daley announced he would not seek another term.
When he learned of Thursday’s ruling, Emanuel said he immediately called his wife and took a congratulatory call from his old boss, the president.
Political observers said the ruling resurrecting Emanuel’s candidacy would probably give him added momentum heading into the last month of the campaign.
Don Rose, a longtime analyst of Chicago politics, said he thought the saga brought would bring Emanuel “even greater sympathy” and could lift him to victory.
“It’s over,” Rose said. “The only open question is whether he wins it in the first round or whether there’s a runoff.”…
…The residency questions have dogged Emanuel ever since he announced his bid. He tried to move back into his house when he returned to Chicago, but the family renting it wanted $100,000 to move out early.
The tenant, businessman Rob Halpin, later filed paperwork to run for mayor against Emanuel, only to withdraw from the race a short time later.
The elections board and a Cook County judge had previously ruled in favor of Emanuel, a former congressman, saying he did not abandon his Chicago residency when he went to work at the White House.
The Supreme Court took special note of Emanuel’s testimony before the election board in which he listed all the personal items he left in the house in Chicago when he moved to Washington — including his wife’s wedding dress, photographs of his children and clothes they wore as newborns, as well as items belonging to his grandfather.
The board “determined that, in this situation, the rental did not show abandonment of the residence,” the court wrote. “This conclusion was well supported by the evidence and was not clearly erroneous.”
More than two dozen people testified on the residency issue at an election board hearing in December. The three-day hearing got progressively stranger as attorneys gave way to Chicago residents who filed objections to the candidacy, including one man who asked Emanuel if he caused the 1993 siege at Waco, Texas.
Who IS “Rahm Emanuel”?
Now, A look at the Past:
Let’s look at a few things and then you decide for yourself.
(Note: The term “Jew” listed in the following articles is misleading IMO—A Communist Zionist does not a real “Jew” make. Remember the media and society has programmed us into believing that there is no such thing as a “Radical Terrorist Zionist or Jew”, to say such a thing means you are WRONGLY labeled and accused of being Anti-Semitic” )
Rahm Emanuel’s Jewish Terrorist Dad Already Insulting Arabs
You may recall that knife-wielding madmanRahm Emanuel, Barack Obama’s new Chief of Staff, has a dad named Benjamin who used to be an Israeli terrorist! Back in the 1940s Benjamin was in a militant Zionist group that massacred some Arabs and did various other freedom-promoting actions. These things can be a little sensitive, so uh, hey Rahm, whatever you do, don’t let your dad go giving racist quotes about Arabs to Israeli newspapers. Okay? Oh hell, it’s too late:
So Benjamin, will Rahm influence the White House to more pro-Israel?
“Obviously he’ll influence the President to be pro-Israel. Why wouldn’t he? What is he, an Arab? He’s not going to be mopping floors at the White House.”

RAHM EMANUEL: Ardent Zionist called Obama’s ‘Svengali’
By Victor Thorn
More sinister than Karl Rove and potentially deadlier than Dick “Darth Vader” Cheney, his name is Rahm Emanuel, and he was recently appointed chief of staff in the president-elect’s White House. This first official act should send waves of alarm through people because Barack Obama promised change, but what we’re getting is the exact same cabal that brought us 9-11 and endless war in the Middle East.
Initial media reports described Emanuel as a vulgar, Chicago-based enforcer who had an aggressive, in-your- face, pit-bull style. Others painted him as a partisan Washington insider with strong ties to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).Although these labels seem harsh, the reality is far worse.
Rahm Emanuel, nicknamed “Rahmbo,” is a pro- Israel Orthodox Jew who was educated in a Talmudic yeshiva and served as a volunteer in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). He is a dual citizen of Israel, which his office refused to deny when AFP inquired. Israel is the only nation where Americans can apply for and obtain citizenship without automatically renouncing U.S. citizenship.
Some Americans are unilaterally proclaimed citizens of other countries, as when an American GI marries a French girl and becomes an automatic citizen of France. But if the GI applied for and obtained French citizenship, he would lose his American citizenship. It is impossible to be a 100 percent loyal American and have an ounce of loyalty to another country; there is no #101 percent and the interests of Israel and the United States are not always synonymous.
Those familiar with the 9-11 terrorist attacks know that the IDF was instrumental in training the Dancing Israelis who—from a rooftop in Weehawken, N. J.—had the foreknowledge to videotape both WTC towers being struck by kamikaze jetliners, then celebrate afterward.
Mentored by members of Chicago’s corrupt party machine like convicted Congressman Dan Rostenkowski, Emanuel gravitated to Washington in 1991 after becoming Bill Clinton’s campaign finance committee director. His star rose even higher when he served as one of the primary NAFTA architects and pushed strict anti-gun legislation. After leaving his post as a policy aide for the Clintons, he used his influence as an investment banker to rake in millions during the late 1990s. With this money, Emanuel won a congressional seat in 2002, became the fourth ranking House Democrat by 2006, and is now the most powerful member of Obama’s executive office team.
FAMILY HISTORY OF VIOLENCE
What truly makes Emanuel dangerous is that his Israeli-born father Benjamin was an integral member of the Zionist terror group known as Irgun during the 1940s. Along with another notorious terror outfit—the Stern Gang—Irgun bombed Jerusalem’s King David Hotel in 1946 where 96 people were killed; while also instigating the 1948 Deir Yassin Massacre.
Rahm Emanuel is the son of a terrorist who directly plotted the assassination of Count Bernadotte, a Swedish diplomat and United Nations envoy who tried to broker peace in Palestine. But Irgun didn’t seek treaties. It instead sought racial cleansing and genocide. According to Elisabeth Bumiller in The New York Times, Benjamin Emanuel passed secret codes to Shin Bet bomber and future Prime Minister Menachem Begin. These very same Jewish terrorists eventually became the recognized Israeli government in 1948, as well as predecessors to Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud Party.
Rahm Emanuel likes to brag about his role in discovering Barack Obama. “Six years ago, people on the North Side of Chicago took a bet on a young kid,” reporter D.H. Williams writes of their symbiotic relationship.
“Rahm and Barack have a deep history together in Chicago politics. Emanuel has been instrumental in the rise of Barack Obama from neophyte senator to the next president of the United States. Getting virtually no media attention, Rahm Emanuel has been by Obama’s side during most of the last two years on the campaign trail.”
If Karl Rove was George W. Bush’s architect, the same can be said of the Emanuel connection. When Obama bowed and groveled at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) convention on June 4, 2008, it was Emanuel who escorted him to meet the executive board afterward.
Emanuel has been the operative who, according to the Chicago Tribune, “remade the Democratic Party in his own image.” Illinois Rep. Ray LaHood (R) seconded this notion. “He legitimately can be called the golden boy of the Democratic Party today. He recruited the right candidates, found the money and funded them, and provided issues for them. Rahm did what no one else could do.”
Worst of all, Emanuel is a rampant warmonger who takes his cues from the neo-cons. In his book The Plan: Big Ideas for America, he wrote, “We need to expand the U.S. Army by 100,000 more troops.”
What will America’s next target be under an Obama presidency? Sources close to Emanuel say that he has a “Zionist obsession with Iran.”
To get a final idea of what we’re dealing with, consider this quote from U.S. war journalist Pat Dollard:
“Let me tell you right now, no exaggeration. Rahm Emanuel is the devil. He is . . . a Goebbels, a Mengele, a perfect Cromwell who would, without the faintest evidence of hesitation washing across his face for even a millisecond, order and even personally execute each and every human being he or Obama perceived to be an enemy of the regime. And if you ever personally offended him, and he had the opportunity to kill you, he would probably do it by starting with your children as you were made to watch. He is a bad guy.”
Some researchers have gone so far as to claim that Emanuel was the notorious “Mega” spy deep inside the Clinton administration who passed top-secret documents about Iran on to the Israeli government, causing a great deal of chaos among the various intelligence agencies. Be very wary of this man. Like the “Prince of Darkness” Richard Perle and Michael Chertoff before him (both of whom hold dual U.S.-Israeli citizenships), it may well be proven that his loyalties rest more with a fabricated little state in the Middle East than they do with us.

Who is Rahm Emanuel?
Who is Rahm Emanuel? Besides being Obama’s Chief of Staff, he is also a Zionist gun-grabbing Communist; all traits that Obama apparently has no problem with. If the amount of Jews that Obama has surrounded himself with isnâ€™t telling enough, the nature and agenda of these people should at least give you pause. In the videos below, Emanuelâ€™s dedication to Israel, public disarmament, and government control become apparent.
Even Alex Jones, who almost always refuses to acknowledge Jewish power, speaks out in disgust about an America that has been infiltrated by Jews who are loyal to Israel. Rahm Emanuel serves as an example of traditional Jewish politics in America; he advocates one ideology for white Americans while advocating the exact opposite for Israel. For example, he advocates strict gun laws here in the U.S., but Israeli citizens are allowed to publicly carry virtually any type of firearm they wish through the streets of Jerusalem. He advocates liberal/global economic policies for America, but economic independence for Israel. Emanuel pushes multiculturalism on Americans by vehemently supporting our countryâ€™s first black president, but is a major supporter of right-wing Israeli segregationist policies.
Not only does Emanuel actually hold dual American-Israeli citizenship (like most Jews in our government), but he even served in the Israeli military during the first gulf war. He also comes from a family with an ultra-Zionist history. His father was born in Jerusalem and was a member of a radical Zionist organization named Irgun. This is how Wikipedia describes Irgun:
Irgun was a militantZionist group that operated in Palestine between 1931 and 1948. It was established as a militant offshoot of the earlier and larger Jewishparamilitary organization Haganah (Hebrew: â€œThe Defenseâ€). For reasons of secrecy, people often referred to the Irgun, during that time, as Haganah Bet (Hebrew: literally â€œDefense â€˜Bâ€™ â€ or â€œSecond Defenseâ€, or alternatively as Haganah Haâ€™leumit or Haâ€™maâ€™amad). In present-day Israel, Irgun is commonly referred to as Etzel, an acronym of the Hebrew initials.
The Irgun was the armed expression of the nascent ideology of Revisionist Zionism founded by Zeâ€™ev Jabotinsky. He expressed this ideology as â€œevery Jew had the right to enter Palestine; only active retaliation would deter the Arabs and the British; only Jewish armed force would ensure the Jewish stateâ€.
Some of the better-known attacks by Irgun were the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on 22 July 1946 and the Deir Yassin massacre (accomplished together with the Stern Gang) on 9 April 1948.
Radical Zionism and Communism have plagued Emanuel’s entire family. As we look at this next quote from Wikipedia, we see that members of his family have been involved in Zionism, ultra-liberalism, hollywood, etc. :
Emanuel was born in Chicago, Illinois to Jewish parents. His father, Benjamin M. Emanuel, a Jerusalem-born pediatrician, was a member of the Irgun. His mother, Martha Smulevitz, was the daughter of a Chicago union organizer. She worked in the civil rights movement and owned, briefly, a local rock-and-roll club. She is now a psychiatric social worker. The two met in Chicago in the 1950s. Emanuel’s older brother Ezekiel J. Emanuel is an oncologist and bioethicist, and his brother Ari Emanuel a Hollywood talent agent. He has an adopted sister, Shoshanna, 14 years his junior.
Emanuel’s first name, Rahm means high or lofty in Hebrew, and is the namesake of one Rahamim (surname unknown), which means mercy in Hebrew, killed in the 1940s fighting for the Zionist group Lehi. The surname Emanuel, adopted by the family in honor of his father’s brother Emanuel Auerbach, killed in Jerusalem during a skirmish with Arabs, means God is with us. Sources conflict as to whether the family changed its name from Auerbach in 1933 or 1938.
When the family lived in Chicago, Emanuel attended Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School, a Conservative Jewish day school. After his family moved to Wilmette, he attended public schools: Romona School, Wilmette Junior High School, and New Trier West High School. He and his brothers attended summer camp in Israel, including just after the 1967 Six Day War.
Rahm Emanuel is an example of only one man, in a long list of Jews with similar beliefs and backgrounds, who has helped shape this country’s ideals and policies. When the American people desperately want to know what has happened to their country, they should know right where to look.

Salem-News.com reader responds to article, Why We Criticize Israel by Tim King.
“I think Zionism and especially American Zionists are absolutely intellectually dishonest. American Zionists were (and are) acting completely un-American to have in the past (or present) brought support a policy of ethno-religious centrism as a basis for politically “creating” another country for a distinct ethno-religious group. This type of behavior was and is absolutely against the precepts of our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights; and is therefore purely antithetical for any U.S. citizen to support.
I know, I know; mostly white, Christian Americans did something similar to the Native Americans while bandying about a ‘Manifest Destiny’ ideology (excuse) which was as morally dishonest (then) as Zionist ideology (excuse) is today. It was and is all about aggression, greed and political conniving under fanatical banners of enforcing oppressive ideologies upon others by TAKING THEIR LANDS as if by some kind of “divine” right, which of course is totally illegitimate and immoral. No human speaks for anyone’s God.”
