With the appointment of Rahm Emanuel as Obama's Chief of Staff I was trying to follow the tracks to how it all leads to this appointment. I would
also be really interested in reading what other people believe the ultimate goal of this "conspiracy" is . It's kind of tragic that I feel the need
to place a disclaimer when starting this thread, but here it is I am not an Obama basher, but I do feel that he is just another politician with no
great resume. And at the same time this is a conspiracy thread so we put together a number of facts and then draw conclusions don't we?
In short we have to start with who is Rahm Emanuel politically, in the words of Newsweek:
"At the same time, Emanuel worked on Bill Clinton's '92 campaign and was an effective operative in the Clinton White House, and he is tight with
various Clinton advisers like James Carville and former campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle (whom he calls his "little sister" from the Chicago
political wars). He has the loyalty of many Democratic congressmen, whom he recruited and for whom he prodigiously fund-raised, helping to secure the
Democratic majority in the 2006 election."
Rahm is obviously a strategic planner and behind the scenes power broker. So let's move on to the 2008 election. It was pretty obvious that no matter
who the republicans put into play as candidate they were going to lose in the light of the disastrous Bush second term of office. But as this is a
conspiracy thread let's take another bold step and say that potentially McCain was part of the conspiracy as he selected Sarah Palin as his running
mate - which showed that he was pretty clueless as a potential President and another nail in the coffin of the Republicans in the election campaign.
For the Palin fans I am just stating that there was greater poloarization after Palin than to McCain, and Palin did some pretty strange things as a
potential VP candidate. In the light of the recent "close" alliance between McCain and Obama this is not such a far fetched theory, though I don't
personally buy into it.
Now let's go directly to the selection and election of the current President. We live obviously in the MTV era of ritalin and media besotted people.
If Perez Hilton says it, it's probably true. And if Tom Cruise says there are Thetans and Psychiatrists and Psychologists are evil then that is also
potentially true. ( You can probably apply this trend to this post too.) BUT having said that we have Rahm Emanuel a political powerbroker living from
Illinois, who is looking to become a kingmaker in the Karl Rove tradition. He and his team of shall we say NWO/pro-Israel/you-fill- in-the-conspiracy
members sit in a room and look for a Manchurian candidate. The person should come with a clean record, have a need for power, be respected and
potentially have a command-audience, eg have the full support of a huge community who to date had never really committed to voting as a block. Enter
Barack Obama a man with a good educational background, a fairly spotless background, who had done some community organising ( not that in most circles
that qualifies you for much) but it is pretty innocuous work and for the people, a some time junior senator in the Illinois Senate ( as we have seen
recently not the most savory state) and who won an election as Senator on his first run for National office. And a very very short time before the
election the obvious winner for the seat, Jack Ryan, is unseated by a secret campaign.
"The Ryan campaign characterized Obama's shift as hypocritical, because Obama's alleged backers had been emailing reports about the divorce records
prior to Judge Schnider's decision." Chicago Sun Times
Because the scandal breaks so late in the race, the Republicans have no chance to regroup and get an equally strong candidate and Obama is elected as
the New Senator from Illinois and thrown into vast media publicity. It is a well documented fact that Joack Ryan was a shoe-in win.
During his rather short career to the White House Obama never takes any stand on potentially controversial issues, in fact it is said and I am sure
some of the more informed members will give exact quotes that he is "told" not to take a stand on any issue that could come back to haunt his
career, so his favorite vote is "abstain" if the bill required a strong decision. Obviously either he or a team are grooming him for the office of
the President. ( The appeal" by John Grisham has a great character that fits this mold)
When he finally "submits" to pressure to run for the top office in the country against a number of pretty strong candidates, including Hillary
Clinton, immediately any number of influential actors come out of the woodwork praising Obama as "the One who could save America"? So why would they
all come out and clap hands for someone who is so inexperienced and pretty much hasn't taken a major stand on any important issue.
Once again let's go to the Rahm Emanuel Factor - his brother:
"Ariel "Ari" Z. Emanuel (born in 1961 in Chicago, Illinois) is a prominent Israeli-American talent agent and founder of the Endeavor Agency in
Beverly Hills, California. He represents Martin Scorsese, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba, Reese Witherspoon, Larry David, Michael Moore, Jude Law, Matt
Damon, Vin Diesel, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Mark Wahlberg, among others. "
Please also note that Ari was the person who was behind the demonizing of Mel Gibson after his drunken tirade against jews, whilst he seemed to have a
different opinion of renowned misogynists and wifebeaters.
With this major force of Hollywood, courtesy of Hollywood powerbroker Ari, is it a surprise that the MTV generation jumped on the bandwagon of Obama
worship? It was obvious from the start that more than 90% plus of black Americans were going to support the person who fulfilled MLK dream. Put those
two together and any strategist will tell you it was no real competition.
Obama's first debt of honor after his election is to appoint Rahm Emanuel as his Chief of Staff. So was this powerbroking by Rahm Emanuel simply to
achieve the positon as second most powerful man in the US or was it something deeper?
Please people stay civil when posting and at the same time remember this is meant as being a potential conspiracy, the facts are real but could be
