Is Chicago heavy hitting mayoral hopeful Rahm Emanuel legit? Well, at least in the sense that he qualifies to run for mayor, given the residency requirements he believes certain prized items of clothing could have fulfilled in his physical absence. Jon Stewart and John Oliver investigate in this clip from Tuesday’s “Daily Show.”  —KA

That both Bush and Emanuel are dishonest does not make Emanuel´s dishonesty more acceptable. 
Sad that the world is not aware of GHWBushSr´s birthplace. 

Although, the replication in the USA of
the situation in Germany of the 1930s-1940s,
gives a hint.

It will be another sad day in the history of
Jurisprudence in the USA if Emanuel is added to the
mayoral list.

his legal Illinois residency is one thing, his legal citizenship is another, in
particular if it can (and many believe it indeed can) be proven that he’s a Mossad
operative - in that case, there would be other, very specific, remedies to his
troublesome presence on these shores, and more egregiously to what degree the
Presidency may have been compromised, going back to the Clinton regime - an
investigation is called for

He was in the Obama whitehouse long enough to mute criticism of Israel.

Rahm Emanuel - Israeli Spy

“John O’Neill and another FBI agent who still works for the bureau discovered that Emanuel was heavily involved in the decision to place Lewinsky close to Clinton. O’Neill retired after being set up in a smear operation involving a temporarily stolen briefcase in 2001, accepted the top security position for Kroll Associates at the WTC, and was killed in the 9/11 attack. Clinton reportedly had knowledge of Israeli intelligence penetration of White House communications systems, and Lewinsky, in sworn testimony before the Office of Independent Counsel, stated:

He suspected that a foreign embassy was tapping his telephones, and he proposed cover stories. If ever questioned, she should say that the two of them were just friends. If anyone ever asked about their phone sex, she should say that they knew their calls were being monitored all along, and the phone sex was just a put-on.

It is now known that the ‘foreign embassy’ was that of Israel. WMR has learned from US intelligence sources that Emanuel was discovered to be part of a political intelligence and blackmail operation directed against Clinton by Israel. We have also learned that the FBI investigation of Emanuel is part of a file code-named Mega, a reference to a top-level Mossad agent in the Reagan administration, who was said to have run a number of Israeli agents, including US Navy spy Jonathan Pollard.”

hello. as a universally adept interstate big truck
engineer, travelling my two million documented miles
across the union of 48 states, i was rarely in my
home state. yet the bastards collected a state tax
from me. the question is- did he pay an Illinois
state tax as a resident of Illinois while he was
serving in Washington,DC- (which is a state of mind,
and not a state of residence) or did he use special
executive powers of noncompliance to avoid paying any
state taxes, and give himself anus filler? if he paid
annual state taxes, i would say he bought the right
to declare his residency. i do not think he would be
a good mayor.

Remember when G.W. Bush was prez. Well he listed his legal address as Texas because they had no income taxes? Well, G.W. actually spent just under 50% of his presidency on vacation anyway. But now they want to complain about Rahm’s residency, I see no difference if his personal effects were in Chicago as when Bush did it.
