Darrell Issa Goes After Rahm Emanuel, Hilarity Ensues And Epic Fail For The Chief Of Staff

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Darrell Issa tells the Chief Of Staff, to, basically fuck off. Zero Hedge tries hard to find fault with the Congressman's logic and fails miserably.

What a fantastic letter!  It is more than "well worth the read".

I've said all along that Obama made a huge mistake selecting Rahm as his COS as the guy is simply a dick and a prick.  He is also an asshole.

I note that Drudge and others reported the other day that Rahm called the powers that be at the big 3 networks (and Fox, I believe) looking for more time for prime time press conferences for the Prez, the last being the health care matter that gave birth to the "beer summit" matter.  For my ZH friends, please note that as far as NBC goes, Rahm's call was directly to J. Immelt of GE "oops, we had a little accounting oversight" Corporation.

Rahm is a little napoleonic wienie and I suggest to Mr. Obama that he is much better off without him.

Well right now I will take any "douche-nozzle" no matter how tall they are to put a stop to the wasteful spending of these stimulus dollars... in Minnesota the stimulus dollars are being used to tear up perfectly good roads and put down another identical road; and to create unneeded police turn-around lanes between divided highways... it makes me sick to see such waste.

Yes.

An interesting early chapter in the Goldman-Emanuel relationship took place in the setting of Bill Clinton’s campaign for the White House in 1992. Clinton hired Emanuel as his chief fundraiser.

At the same time, however, Emanuel was on the payroll of Goldman Sachs, receiving $3,000 per month from the firm to “introduce us to people,” in the words of one Goldman partner at the time. This is certainly a noteworthy relationship, but it’s one that has almost entirely escaped scrutiny.

Corporations and partnerships are and were at the time prohibited by law from contributing to federal candidates out of the corporate coffers. So, while Rahm tapped Goldman employees personally for six figures in gifts to Clinton’s candidacy—more than any other firm—Goldman, as a company, was helping keep Clinton’s top fundraiser well-fed.

When you look at the explanations Goldman and Emanuel gave for Emanuel’s employment—he was advising on “local political races” or “introduc[ing] us to people”—it’s easy to suspect that Goldman was using firm money to fund the Clinton campaign by paying the campaign’s top fundraiser for nebulous “consulting” work—all while the campaign was in debt and delaying paychecks to campaign staff.

...

In his four terms in Congress, Emanuel has raised $74,750 from Goldman, making the firm his number four source of funds.

I actually have no problem with Rahm's tactics in this case. Kyl bluffed, Rahm called, and he got egg on himself. Kyl was grandstanding. He got what he deserved. Period.

As for the stimulus itself, well that is another story.

There's a difference between saying "let's all give up our stimulus checks" and saying "I'll give up my check, but you guys go ahead and keep the checks I'm forced to subsidize."

Clearly no one is going to give up their state's money without an agreement between states.  Rahm's argument is ridiculous and is absolutely an attempt to bully.

Of all the words I have heard describe Cheney, efficient has never been one until today.  Cheney is an ultimate bureaucracy twister.  That is a rare enough skill and he is among the best ever at it.   However, there is nothing efficient about a bureaucracy or those that can manipulate them.

next challenge

 

GMAC Inc., the lender battered by persistent weakness in the housing and auto markets, reported Tuesday that its second-quarter loss widened to $3.9 billion and acknowledged it's in discussions with the Federal Reserve on $5.6 billion in new capital it needs.

The results, compared with a $2.48 billion loss a year ago, were driven primarily by a charge related to the lender's incorporation and continued red ink stemming from souring mortgage loans. GMAC squirreled away more funds to reserve against future losses, while knocking down the value of its commercial insurance unit as it readies it for a potential sale.

"Issa claiming that 2.6 million jobs have been lost since Obama took office, like he caused that to happen somehow"

I don't think that was the point at all - the point is, the rational for the stimulus was that it would cap unemployment.  That was the argument for spending all that money.

It was a failure, and Issa is saying, let's acknowledge it was a failure, and not waste the rest of the money.

Okay, Cheeky, it's like this...

I have a 'relative' who was bright and ambitious and thus entered the shadow world of politics. Although he never ran for political office, he was active helping others get elected. He watched as the machine descended on the poor polling stations on Election Day to warn that the other side would end Social Security, knowing full well this was crap. He helped elect representatives that entered office virtually penniless and retired millionaires. In the end he grew weary of the debauchery and decay, and the sheer scale of corruption. He got out.

When you think about it, all elected officials have their own DeLorean. They know where the new airport will be located. Suddenly farmland that was selling for $5000/acre is worth ten times that.  It's all about inside information, and there's no shortage of that in D.C.

And because virtually all politicians are narcissists, they have no interest in those that cannot help them personally (outside your vote, of course.) They spend their years in Washington growing fat (literally and/or figuratively) and throwing the occasional bone to their constituency, and thus have a warped perception of virtually everything that lies outside the Beltway.

Do you know what I look for in a person? I look for someone who is more conscientious spending someone else's money than he/she is with his/her own. Good luck finding that kind of character in D.C.

+1. Also been close to politics -- personally -- and I've yet to meet a politician I couldn't eventually loath. Doesn't matter the party or orientation... they just suck the oxygen out of the room. The sociopaths playing on Wall Street are infants compared to elected officials. It must have something to do with all that adulation, all that "vote for me! I'm the best!" going instantly to their heads. Probably democracy is the best we have, but our system of voting and the influence peddling it encourages has managed to twist democracy into a scabrous prostitute sucking corporate gizz.

Pisses me off. Does not bode well for getting ourselves clear of our current set of calamities.

Cheeky I've lived in DC all my life, and basically the entire Congress are corrupt.  It's a show for the cameras, the politicians are actors, just like in the twilight of the Roman Empire.

 

They are all bribed or blackmailed, so when it really comes down to it they do whatever they are supposed to.  The thing with Issa vs. Emmanual is simply a case of balls vs balls -- just a Machivellian power play.  In my opinion it is minimally to nothing based on principle, but I am glad to see it set in motion. We need these idiots at each other's throats so they can't screw things up more than they already have.  The Executive Branch that has already seized two massive car companies and an insurance company, is using intimidation to silence it's political opponents etc -- is very similar to Italy early 1930s -- so gridlock and exposure of corruption is our best friend right now.

My short list would include 1. the use of the executive orders and czars to circumvent the balance of power between branches and the constitution.  2. campaign finance reform that eliminates the efficacy of corporate lobbying outnumbering representatives 5 to 1.  3. investigate the banker take over of this country both by campaign contributions (#1 sector), bailouts that benefit campaign contributors, bailouts that benefit large banks associated with the Fed, selective bailouts that eliminated the competitors to Fed connected banks, the selected starving out of small businesses by removing liquidity, the use of tax payer money to pay huge bonuses to connected banks, the use of taxpayer money to send overseas to Fed connected foreign central banks, the use of AIG as a fraudulent conduit to make large payments to connected banks (claw back payments), the apparent interest in destroying the US dollar and its buying power, an audit of the Fed, and repeal of the federal reserve act of 1913.

The rotunda can not contain the smell, clean up your garbage.

And, Rahm has really screwed himself politically if it brings McCain to start saying "my friend Jon Kyl" and "my friend Jan Brewer." 

Wrong state Rahm, wrong state - stupid infantile little Rahm.  AZ hated Washington before this happened.
