- President Obama's chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, as previously
reported by WMR, has been engaged in a virtual "pogrom" against
progressive Democrats in the White House, as well as in Congress. However,
WMR has learned from multiple Capitol Hill sources that Emanuel's vendetta
has taken on vicious racial overtones with the African-American leadership
of House of Representatives committees being his top targets.
- On March 7, The Guardian of the UK reported that the
foul-mouthed Emanuel referred to Washington, DC as "f**knutsville."
The latest epithet followed Emanuel's description of progressive Democrats
upset over Obama's pro-business slant as "f**king retarded."
- Although the long knives are out on Emanuel among many
Democrats in Congress, Obama's chief of staff has been gaining the upper
hand with pro-Obama "puff pieces" recently appearing in The Washington
Post praising Emanuel as the top White House pragmatist at the expense
of Obama's chief political strategist David Axelrod, adviser Valerie Jarrett,
and even Obama himself.
- Informed Democratic and Republican congressional sources
report to WMR that Emanuel's latest gambit is to wrest control of key House
committee chairmanships from African-Americans and have the gavels handed
over to Jewish members, all of whom are close political allies of Emanuel.
The ethics probe of House Ways and Means Committee chairman Charlie Rangel
(D-NY) has forced him to "temporarily" hand over the chairmanship
of the powerful committee to Sander Levin (D-MI) after ranking Democratic
Representative Pete Stark of California, a critic of American wars in the
Middle East and Israeli policies, was passed over in favor of Levin after
the intervention of Emanuel with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Congressional
sources do not believe that Rangel will see his chairmanship restored.
- WMR has now learned that the next target for Emanuel
is House Judiciary Committee chairman John Conyers, Jr., the long-serving
Michigan Democrat who has been outspokenly critical of Obama's policies
on health care and other key issues.
- Last year, Conyers's wife Monica Conyers, the former
President of the Detroit City Council, was indicted last year for accepting
a $5000 bribe from Carlyle-Synagro Technologies of Texas and then reversed
her vote on approving a $1.2 billion sludge disposal contract with the
city of Detroit. Carlyle-Synagro is owned by the Carlyle Group, the firm
that has close ties to the Bush family.
- Mrs. Conyers is due to be sentenced on March 10 by US
Judge Avern Cohn, who, as WMR previously reported, has been conspiring
with Emanuel to delay sentencing Mrs. Conyers as a way to pressure House
Judiciary Chairman Conyers to temper his criticisms of Obama. Federal prosecutors
studiously avoided bringing charges against Carlyle-Synagro because of
the firm's "cooperation" in the federal investigation of Monica
Conyers and her former aide Sam Riddle. WMR has learned that the bribe
of Mrs. Conyers was part of a conspiracy by Emanuel, US Attorney for Eastern
Michigan Terrence Berg, and FBI agent in Detroit Andrew Arena to
bring down Conyers as House Judiciary Chairman by going after his wife.
- After Mrs. Conyers's sentencing on March 10, Emanuel,
WMR is told, will arrange for a letter signed by Chairman Conyers and sent
to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which advocated
for the Romulus hazardous waste injection well contract for Environmental
Geo-Technologies, Inc., a company owned by Dimitrios "Jim" Papas,
to be awarded to the firm, to be released to the media. Papas
reportedly offered Riddle to receive a $20,000 sub-contract while Mrs.
Conyers, according to Riddle, would receive $10,000 of that money as a
- After the letter is released after Mrs. Conyers's sentencing
by Cohn, Emanuel's media friends will call for John Conyers, the second
longest serving House member after John Dingell (D-MI), to repeat
the actions of Rangel and "temporarily" hand over his gavel with
concurrent calls for a House Ethics probe.
- However, WMR has learned from House sources that John
Conyers never signed the letter to the EPA, which was drafted by an EPA
fellow working on Conyers's staff. Mustafa Santiago Ali. Ali, WMR has learned,
did not want to write the letter but was forced into it by Conyers's chief
of staff Cynthia Martin, who, WMR is told, is part of Emanuel's conspiracy
against the Judiciary chairman. After Ali wrote the letter, his fellowship
on Conyers's staff was terminated by Martin.
- WMR, which hopes to obtain the letter, has learned that
Conyers's signature was affixed by a staffer, that it has no salutation,
and is undated. However, there is a possibility that what is arranged for
release by Emanuel may include a date and a salutation and thus, falsely
implicate Chairman Conyers in the Detroit bribery politics that sank his
wife's political career.
- WMR has also learned that Emanuel is pumping campaign
cash into the coffers of potential primary opponents prior to the May 11
candidate filing deadline in Michigan. Conyers's congressional colleague
from Detroit, Representative Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, whose son, former
Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was convicted of corruption, and Conyers, are being
targeted for primary defeat by potential candidates hand-picked by Emanuel.
The potential opponents, which include three identified as challengers
to Conyers, are receiving money from the same Israel Lobby sources
who helped defeat Representatives Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) and Earl Hilliard
(D-AL) over their lack of support for pro-Israel resolutions.
- WMR has learned from an African-American congressional
source that Emanuel has made no secret of his dislike of African-Americans
in Congress, particularly the chairmen of committees, including Conyers,
Rangel, and Homeland Security committee chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS).
Ironically, Emanuel, who is the chief of staff for the first African-American
president of the United States, is known to use the term "shvartz"
in describing the senior African-American congressmen. Shvartz is the Yiddish
word that means the same thing as "nigger."
- We have also learned from a former Democratic member
of the House that Emanuel's job with the investment firm Wasserstein-Perella,
where he earned $16.2 million for his prospective congressional race to
succeed Rod Blagojevich as congressman from Illinois's 5th congressional
district, was partly arranged by the media-shy rabid pro-Israeli owner
of Slim Fast Foods, S. Daniel Abraham. It is the type of political quid
pro quo that Emanuel is now using to hammer Rangel, Conyers, and the ousted
chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee John Dingell, who was
replaced by Emanuel ally Henry Waxman (D-CA).
- Blagojevich has argued that transcripts of his wiretapped
phone calls were only selectively released to the media. WMR has learned
from a top GOP lobbyist that Blagojevich can be expected to beat the criminal
charges against him when it is revealed in trial that Emanuel conspired
with U.S. Attorney for northern Illinois Patrick Fitzgerald to indict the
former Illinois governor by focusing on his attempt to "sell"
Obama's vacant US Senate seat. In fact, Emanuel was adamantly opposed to
Blagojevich naming any African-American, Representative Jesse Jackson III
or Roland Burris to the seat. Although it has been reported that Emanuel
favored Valerie Jarrett for the seat, WMR has learned that Emanuel actually
was pushing for Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), an Emanuel ally,
for the seat.
- Knowing of Emanuel's personal dislike for African-Americans,
Blagojevich responded to Emnanuel's pressure by naming Burris to the seat.
Emanuel's allies in the Senate responded by greeting the junior Illinois
senator with an ethics investigation. The Senate dropped its ethics investigation
of Burris due to lack of evidence and merely issued a letter of admonishment on
November 20, 2009. However, Burris's career was finished and he announced
he would not seek re-election.
- If Conyers is forced to step down or "temporarily"
step aside as chairman, ranking Democrat Howard Berman (D-CA), another
Emanuel ally, would step up as chairman. Such a move would see Representative
Gary Ackerman, another Emanuel friend, step up to take Berman's place as
chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
- Emanuel also has Thompson, chairman of Homeland Security,
as a target. Thompson has been under an ethics cloud for taking lobbyist-funded
trips to Saipan, courtesy of jailed GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff, and to
Saint Martin, courtesy of Citigroup lobbyists. Although Representative
Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) is the ranking Democrat on the committee, Emanuel
can be expected to pressure Pelosi to find another assignment for her so
that the third-ranking Democrat, Representative Jane Harman (D-CA), another
Emanuel ally, can step up to chair the committee. Harman has been under
a cloud resulting from her close association with the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and Mossad agents in Washington, DC.
- WMR was told by a top GOP lobbyist who is on good terms
with Representative Conyers that number of House and Senate members
and staffers view Emanuel as a "dangerous psychopath" capable
of doing almost anything to advance his agenda. A former African-American
member of the House told WMR that Emanuel's goal is to eliminate every
African-American chairman from their leadership roles and pave the way
for Emanuel's Jewish colleagues to take their chairmanships from them.
The strategy has already been carried out with respect to Rangel, as well
as with pro-union Dingell, who is white. The strategy is about to be played
out against Conyers and, eventually, Thompson.
- As this story was being prepared, freshman Representative
Eric Massa (D-NY), who announced his resignation after being embroiled
in a homosexual sexual harassment scandal involving a staffer, announced
on a WKPQ-FM Saturday radio show that he was the victim of a conspiracy
carried out by Emanuel and his House allies. Massa said he had a "profanity-filled
conversation" conversation with Emanuel last year after voting against
Obama's health care bill. Massa said he told Emanuel to resign for his
use of profanity. Massa added, "Rahm Emanuel is son of the devil's
spawn . . . He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote.
He would strap his children to the front end of a steam locomotive."
