Fran Leaves Rahm's Reservation

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel has emphatically denied that politics is behind his decision to file a pre-emptive lawsuit seeking to block U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions from cutting off federal crimefighting funds to sanctuary cities.

    If that’s true, why did Emanuel play the media like a fiddle by dribbling out details of the lawsuit over a three-day period?

    And why do the mayor’s own private emails expose his attempts to use his pro-immigration stance to shore up a national media image that took a beating after the November 2015 release of video showing a white Chicago Police officer firing 16 shots at black teenager Laquan McDonald?
Fran has been carrying water for Rahm's administration for years, just like she used to for Shortshanks. Questions like these could have doomed Rahm's mayoral bid. So why now? Who is the Slum Times backing for mayor now? What strings are being tugged?

Rahm...national image.... Immigration stance, posturing.... Next senator...
He'll do to Durbin, what he did to Daley = Blackmail him out of office.
He knows he's done in the city. Luis will back him....only who runs for mayor? God help us!

HOW can Emanuel file a 'pre-emptive' lawsuit??
Don't you have to be 'wronged' before you can file a suit?

Why did the media allow itself to be played?

Don't give her too much credit. She failed to mention that the video was kept from the public until after the election and only after a judge ordered its release. It is not possible for that to have happened without rahm's orders. To this day, no media has asked rahm the followup of when he first saw the video. When he said, "I will see the video when you see the video" was a slimy duck and the logicl next question should have been to ask if that means he has never seen it and if he has, when did he see it.

"Fran Leaves Rahm's Reservation"

SHEEEIIIIT...

Rahm's most ardent and fanatically
devoted pantyless cheerleader suddenly
discovering modesty after years of the
most outrageously ass-out, deliberately
obtuse and skewed propaganda cartwheels,
somersaults and back-flips?

"Yay Team!"
>Flip!<

What are her teammates Sneed, Mitchell, Steinberg,
Brown, Zorn and Glanton going to do now that she's
found "religion?"

Maybe she was told to seek cover before
the big federal MOAB is dropped down the chimney
at City Hall?

>Flash!<
KA-BLOOOEY!

All of these activist mayors have come to bad ends
in America. Rahm is on the wrong side of public opinion
and also the law. He deserves to wind up in Federal Prison.
He is a political anarchist at the wrong time in the U.S.A.

Cortes-Morales actually committed over 20 armed robberies in Chicago and the burbs, He was indicted Federally and charged with 6. Great work done by the CPD/FBI Violent Crimes Task Force solving this robbery pattern and charging Morales.

The newspapers in Chicago are rags and the columnists and reporters are liberal slugs that hate Trump. The TV media is no better. The only person worth listening to is Dan Proft on WIND radio, his points of view are spot on. His sidekick Amy Jacobson is a blonde joke. ♠️

Rham never let's a disaster go unused unless he can use it as a sound bite for his own good.

Look up the release of the video of van Dyke shooting......
Then watch media asking Rham and McCarty questions.
Rham used the bad presser great and had McCarthys back for a whole 4 days
Then fired McCarthy claiming he was reason for bad press.....


This is to gain votes and nothing more.
He will spend city money to fight it since its not his money...

Take note of how the corrupt machine/combine operates and connect the dots, Riley, Safer, Holmes & Cancila LLP law firm are listed as attorneys for the City of Chicago on the frivolous sanctuary city lawsuit against Jeff Sessions , interesting that it is the same law firm of Special Prosecutor Patricia Holmes.

Standing usually takes harm demonstrated, but he is Rahm and Rahm is government - rules only apply to us, the peons called working stiffs, not Rahm, not Democrats, and certainly not Chicago City or Cook County Government.

Not sure if they're backing someone else but I'm guessing everyone is tired of having their intelligence insulted by him. He constantly BS's everyone like we're all dumb. He says he's not going to let his police force get played but he's the king of playing and blaming the police. Everyone knows this. It's very obvious he's looking for Hispanic votes. But even the honest working hispanics don't want illegal criminals here. What he's doing is insane!!!

I said the same shit she is saying a day earlier on this blog. So if a retired CPD Sgt. can figure out Rahm's plan before the Sun-Times; Professional Journalism in Chicago is Dead! And it is going to get worse. The case against Van Dyke is NOT a Slam Dunk; and if Van Dyke walks, Rahm's career will be smashed like a store front window on Mag Mile. And believe me there will be plenty of smashed windows if Van Dyke walks. Rahm has consistently used his playbook from the 90's when he was the power behind Clinton, but the 90's are history. Sure, the Mayor still has a Rubber Stamp City Council; but the businesses and taxpayers are leaving and Da Prajets iz gone. Sure, young Millennials are moving in; but they do not vote, and they do not contribute to political causes, and perhaps most importantly; they do not stay, because the schools suck. Yet, the darkest days are yet to come, because we have not changed and continue to vote Democrat, long after that Party has abandoned Working and Middle Class people/folks. The "Entitled" are now large enough and strong enough to form the foundation constituency of the Democrat Party. Taxpayers are reduced to being Slaves on the Chicago Democrat Plantation. Baby "G"







a slam dunk; if Van Dyke walks, Rahm is Deadm and so are the windows downtown and on Mag Mile!

Knowing his image is far from what he thought it would be since his days at the WH, he's been on a constant campaign since his run-off with Chuey Jesus.

This could signal that Pulitzer must be completely out of 2018 journalism nominees if Fran is driveling up some sort of offering, but this wasn't her discovery and merely a rehash of someone else's work. Gossip columnists don't qualify as journalists so Pultizer Prize is safe for now.

Hammering Rahm early and often is key to his political dimise, sadly only another short-sided Democrat will fill the void.
Wait until Pawar loses badly at his gubernatorial stunt, he will be first in line at the Election Bd with his signatures.

Fran your older than dirt and look it, but come on ask rahm about this 7 shot 1 dead :

http://abc7chicago.com/mass-shooting-at-bronzeville-barbecue-leaves-7-shot-1-fatally/2289000/

Why Fran your friend rahm and the 50 are not thrown out "by their ears" is amazing! No marching on city hall, no revs upset (the payoffs to keep your mouth shut must be overwhelmed) even Louie Farrakhan is silent, Jesse (I didn't get her pregnant the extortionists) Jackson is quiet! No outrage as the carnage continued unabated, rahm breaking federal immigration laws protecting criminals using scare taxpayers cash, no Feds arresting the elected who are culpable in breaking laws!

Don't get too excited SCC, Fran didn't report that the very same day she "broke" the story that the taxpayer funded lawsuit was a PR stunt he also announced the lay-offs of about 700 CPS employee's.

Another tremendous waste of Taxpayer Dollars. When will these Communist Chicago politicians quit playing games with our money, and get down to some serious budget cutting, proper fiscal management, and saving us taxpayers some of our own money instead of seeing it spent frivolously, just to buy the politicians political favors and other favoritism. ?

Hopefully the day soon comes when we can drive n/b

witness with our own eyes the spectacle of Fran Spielman
reduced to chasing those big-assed river rats so she can have
something to pad her pork 'n beans with.
