October 11, 2007 -- Rahm Emanuel: the mini-Rove of the Democratic Party

US Representative Rahm Emanuel, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus and former chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), has a history of penetrating opposition political campaigns in a manner reminiscent of Karl Rove.

WMR has learned that Emanuel went to work for Ohio Senator John Glenn's presidential campaign in Illinois in 1984 with the intention of disrupting it. A Glenn campaign worker told WMR that he got into a physical altercation with Emanuel after Emanuel attempted to take control of campaign responsibilities without authorization. Glenn had an off-and-on stormy relationship with Ohio's other Democratic senator, Howard Metzenbaum, a strong supporter of Israel.

Emanuel again crossed paths with the Glenn campaign official in 1988. The former Glenn official was working for Illinois Senator Paul Simon's presidential campaign and Emanuel again appeared on the scene. Simon's campaign ultimately failed with Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis, another strong supporter of Israel, picking up the Democratic nomination.

Emanuel served in the Israel Defense Force during Desert Storm in 1991. Emanuel's father, Benjamin Emanuel, was a member of the Israeli terrorist group Irgun Zvai Leumi, whose ideological mentor was Ze'ev Jabotinsky, a Jewish fascist who admired Italy's dictator and Adolf Hitler ally Benito Mussolini. Jabotinsky is, along with German-born Leo Strauss, a founder of the modern neo-conservative movement, which has strong underpinnings in fascist and National Socialist ideology. The Irgun blew up the King David Hotel in Jerusalem in 1946, killing and wounding a number of British soldiers. The group also specialized in planting bombs in Arab markets (souks) in Palestine, killing a number of civilians.

WMR has heard from a number of Democratic congressional candidates in California, Florida, Missouri, Illinois, Virginia, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, and Georgia who have complained that Emanuel acts as a political "litmus test" gatekeeper, ensuring that only those Democrats swearing allegiance to strong support for Israel and a strong US military presence in the Middle East receive Democratic campaign contributions and political support. The Democrats would have increased their numbers in the House in 2006 had Emanuel's DCCC provided more funds for cash-strapped Democratic candidates in congressional districts where GOP incumbents were vulnerable.

Although Emanuel is from Illinois, he is not supporting Democratic presidential candidate and Illinois US Senator Barack Obama. Emanuel, a former official in the Bill Clinton White House, is strongly in Hillary Clinton's camp.

Eureka!! We now have a number 2 for We the People's hit list for Democrat slime to off in 2008. Number one is Pelosi. All recommendations must be supported by evidence such as our host provides us here.

Steny Hoyer, if I remember what you said before, Mr. Madsen, is part of the Israel-first block.

Emanuel starved Col. Bob Bowman for cash in Bowman's Florida '06 congressional race. Col. Bowman was outspent 30 to 1, I believe and still won 44% of the vote. Col. Bowman is also an outspoken proponent of a new and real investigation of 9/11.

Is that an investigation Emanuel does not want to take place, for fear of where it may lead, perhaps?

Steny Hoyer's sister is Bernice Manocherian. She was President of AIPAC in 2004.

Excerpt of Hoyer's speech to AIPAC conference in 2004: "... Now let me speak about my sister, Bernice, your incoming president. She and I were born not together, but at the same hospital in New York City. I was born at least a couple of decades before Bernice. Bernice does not have a microphone, but she said, absolutely. Bernice, we are so proud of you, we sons and daughters of the Fifth Avenue Flower Hospital. And I look forward to working as closely with you as I have with Amy – as I have with Howard. I know you will do an extraordinary job. (Applause.)"

    Here's an important article from CounterPunch:


One of the unintended consequences of 911 was that it brought a sense of "we are all in this together" between the races in the USA and in particular between Blacks and Whites. I witnessed many poignant moments on that fateful day while watching TV of Black victims helping White victims and the reverse. It was hard not to notice and it was one of the few heartening things going on that day. It's become obvious to me that during and since Katrina that the Machine is trying hard to undo that. We can't let them.

I'll second the nomination of Emanuel as a person to be voted out of office. We're got two now. We'll need a strategy of course.

CTRL is a discussion & informational exchange list. Proselytizing propagandic
screeds are unwelcomed. Substance—not soap-boxing—please!   These are
sordid matters and 'conspiracy theory'—with its many half-truths, mis-
directions and outright frauds—is used politically by different groups with
major and minor effects spread throughout the spectrum of time and thought.
That being said, CTRLgives no endorsement to the validity of posts, and
always suggests to readers; be wary of what you read. CTRL gives no
credence to Holocaust denial and nazi's need not apply.

Let us please be civil and as always, Caveat Lector.
