Rahm-tard will mobilize the Illinois National Guard and send them to Israel...

Obummer is too spineless and ball-less to say anything about it...

Rahm Emanual and Barack Obama belonged to the same Gay Chicago Bath House.

Once he is elected as Mayor, he will begin working on "fixing" Illinois' and chicago's debt problem.   However it will not be "fixed " by budget cutting or reducing pension.  The holders of Illinois and Chicago debt will bear the brunt of this fix.  It might be some kind of a haircut or current holders of this debt will be coerced into taking on additional debt at below market rates so Illinois can avoid the pain of austerity.   perhaps Rahm will lean on the rating agencies to upgrade Illinois and chicago debt in order to get lower rates.  Having Rahm as mayor of chicago is part of the Administration's method of dealing with the the debt problems in Illinois.  It also helps that Bill Daley from Morgan Stanley is now Chief of Staff.   right now I would not want to be holding Illinois debt, even to use as toilet paper.

As a member of the Illinois Bar--what a joke.  They could have covered this up much better. Not that he isn't the best candidate, but the stench of corruption is overpowering. Glad I am making tracks from this bunch of crooks and losers.

Okay.  I can't freaking stand Rahm.  But, where was he from before he went to be Dipshit's Chief of Staff?  When he served in the house, who did he represent?  He has to be from somewhere.  Where is it?  Did he sell his house, establish residency somewhere else?  The guy is a prick, and Chicago is a cesspool, but this doesn't exactly seem like carpetbagging.

I can't stand Pelosi either, but are we to say that she isn't a resident of California?

I have had years where I only spent a handful of nights in my house; on the road working.  I still vote in the precinct my house is.  Is that wrong?

If Chicagoans are stupid enough to vote for him, they will get what they deserve: even more corrupt government.

Of course, Moseley-Braun isn't much of an alternative...

This is the legally correct decision as residence is synomonous with registration/registered.  It is no way impliel actual being present except for in the record archives of the manicipal corporation.  Anyone that is a registered voter can run in a manipical corporation for any position provided that they have been registed for the time specified REGARDLESS is they actually live in the state or not.


Live and reside are not the same.  1 is a common law legal term, the other a Maritime-Admiralty-UCC term.

Rahm Israel Emmanuel...with a name like that, was there ever any doubt that he would not be allowed power?  USA...why has your God (in whom you trusted) forsaken you? 

P.S.  when you dance with the devil (USA's 51st state), you don't lead

Perhaps.  But do remember that he is running in a city that has the largest Polish population outside of Warsaw, and the utterly vast majority aren't Jewish. There is, also, a remaining large Irish minority who still favor keeping the Chicago River green on St. Paddy's Day. There is a significant Italian population as well.  All of these minorities are Catholic.  Then there is the South Side Black population...Somehow, I have a very hard time imagining Rahm getting elected unless via outright fraud, which is also common in Chicago, where commonly the dead vote.

Not to mention that Chicago took all of Clark County's (NV) malfunctioning electronic voting machines.


The vote will go exactly as they plan it to go, and it doesn't matter how Chicagoans intend to vote.

Maybe he can court the German vote, his family surname was originally Auerbach:


The Boys went to summer camp in Israel, and reveled in the family lore: in 1933, after their uncle Emanuel Auerbach was killed in a skirmish with Arabs in Jerusalem, the family changed its last name to his first, as a tribute.

It gets stranger still when you realize that Rahm's father was the head of Irgun, the dirty arm of the Israeli/Mossad establishment. Bombings/rape, genocide, nothing Irgun would not do for Israel's' greater glory.

And this guy's son got to be THE voice in Obama's ear through his grooming? It's kind of like everyone (at least man on the street) never questioning the Bush background with Prescott and the like, Nazi connections, BCCI, Iran Contra, Savings and loan....

Sheep and shepherd, a timeless relationship of trust till the cull comes.

Please.  Politicians everywhere lie and cheat on residency requirements.  In central Mass., U.S. representative Jim McGovern, a useless drag on the world's supply of oxygen, was clearly not an actual resident of the district before he got elected to rule, er, I mean "represent" us.

"This court’s decision is based on the following and only on the following: (1) what it means to be a resident for election purposes was clearly established long ago, and Illinois law has been consistent on the matter since at least the 19th Century;"

So I guess Hillary is still a resident...LOL.

LOL yes that makes it clear. the fact that he was not actually residing there over the past year has nothing to do with him being a "resident"

it all depends on what the meaning of "is" is

do we have confidence in our courts?

Imagine if you were Rahm.  Serious, efficient, talented, effective, ball buster (all true even if you can't stand him).....  You work for that bumbling teleprompter fumbling dipshit in the White House?

You wouldn't be able to get out of there fast enough either.
