Chicago has seen over 510 murders this year. 5.2% or 26 were of other than blacks and Hispanics; 16.4% or about 84 were Hispanic; and the remaining 78.4% or 400 were black. The deaths were only a small portion of the shootings. There were 2,982 shootings. That boils down to about 2 homicides a day and 12 people shot and wounded every day.
Chicago’s mayor is Obama’s buddy Rahm Emmanuel. Rahm is one of those “gifted” politicians like Bill Clinton. People like to gift them money in exchange for their influence. Imagine the return these people must get from the public weal if they are willing to pay these sums.
Bill was given 18 million by a private college so it could use his name in selling its programs; Rahm was paid a monthly sum of $450,000 by a Wall Street firm Wasserstein Perella prior to having “enjoyed a generous retainer from Goldman Sachs, which paid him “to introduce us to people.,” . . . ”
In many places prostitution, usually meaning a woman selling herself, is outlawed. That is because the women who engage in it for the most part have little say in the way laws are made. As outcasts from the system, and mostly as down-and-outers, those in power feel a moral superiority by kicking them around.
How different though is it from the actions of Rahm and Bill. Don’t they too sell themselves to others? Are they whores? The dictionary defines whore as to “debase oneself by doing something for unworthy motives, typically to make money.” Is it because they are part of the law making group that their actions are considered all right and not a crime?
Sadly they are in politics to make money through connections with money people. They are too busy doing this to face and understand the problems of their constituents. Too many come to politics and end up a multi-millionaires while supposedly expressing concern for those who are suffering the most in our society. Not all though, here is a fascinating list of net worths of Congress members.
We see the folly of having a guy like Bill for president with his omnipresent smile except when his tawdry life-style in on parade when it turns to a snarl. How different is he from the low lives lIke Whitey Bulger and Steve Flemmi. Like them, his goal in life is money and women as John Martorano said and he added: “not necessarily in that order.” I’ll write later how Clinton’s wandering mind brought us al Qaeda and the present situation in North Korea.
Rahm also seem otherwise occupied. He got jammed in recently when it was discovered he knew about a video which showed a white Chicago police officer gunning down a young black man walking down the street who appeared to present no threat to anyone. When his malfeasance in hiding this was disclosed he acted quickly.
To get the pressure off of himself he canned the police superintendent Garry McCarthy. Then he hand-picked a black 27 year veteran of the Chicago police, Eddie Johnson, as its new police superintendent. Rahm’s interference in the police department began earlier under McCarthy when he demanded he cozy up to the ACLU, He forced the police department to require all its officers who make a street stops to fill out a form explaining why it was done.
These forms would be reviewed by the ACLU. As you may expect, the number of street stops declined drastically. The result is obvious in the number of blacks that have been killed this year. Rahm could care less since the pressure was off of him.
Donald Trump has brought up the connection between liberals and city violence noting that most cities are run by liberal Democrats. It is true that most are; it is false that equates to more violence. Take Boston, New York, and Los Angeles run by such Democrats. There and in many other such cities violence is under control. It is only when the cities are run by mayors who are like whores being more interested in lining their pockets than helping their constituents that it attains.
