Dec. 1, 2008 White House Chief of Staff designate Rahm Emanuel listens to President-elect Barack Obama, not pictured, speak at a news conference in Chicago. Gov. Rod Blagojevich is legendary in Illinois political circles for not picking up the phone or returning calls, even from important figures like the state's senior senator, Dick Durbin. But there was always one call Blagojevich regularly took, say his aides, and that was from Rahm Emanuel _ his congressman, his one-time campaign adviser and, more recently _ and troubling for Emanuel _ one of his contacts with President-elect Barack Obama's transition staff.

Additions to Mondoweiss:  American leaders are turning away from the lobby

.

Mondoweiss has a flowery way of writing and sticks to his guns on being anti dual loyalty, he is an American first. But it is not for me to talk for him, it is just that having seen his post today, it made me think of all the Jewish Oligarchs that are under fire, and they are all Neocons, helping the settlers etc. And they seem to be falling from grace in a cascading way.

.

Listed here in this post:

.

Rahm, Cheney, Madoff, Adelson and Jimmy Cayne, (many are not listed).

.

Rahm Emmanuel: The attack on the Illinois Governor has implications on Rahm. Rahm even said he is getting death threats, which to me sounded like a warning to others, perhaps the Governor. It is an extraordinary comment from the future White House chief of staff.

.

And if this was the Governor’s Al Capone retort or not I do not know:

.

However, Blagojevich is quoted as saying “I want it to be in his head” for later discussions about Emanuel’s successor. Source

.

Maybe better to stay out of it….
.

This is an excerpt from Mondoweiss’ post regarding US aid to Israel:

Martin Indyk of Brookings Saban Center recently said that “the era of the blank check was over. This is a remarkable statement: Indyk is acknowledging that there was a blank check in the past and saying this is now changing….

.

What is happening, I hope, is a redefinition of what it means to be pro-Israel. Thoughtful people are beginning to realize that uncritical support for the Jewish state isnt pro-Israel, because it has encouraged policies that threaten Israel’s long-term future. Similarly, critics of certain Israeli policies like Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinki, Avraham Burg, and John and myself arent anti-Israel–they simply think that the special relationship is no longer good for either country (if it ever was), and that a normal relationship would be better for both.  Source

.

Cheney has been in the news, first indicted for organised criminal activity regarding domestic US prisoner abuse, then admitting as much (although related to the War on terror, see video) in an ABC interview. And an ABC interview is surely the equivalent to a state run media (propoganda), in other words it was pre arranged, and perhaps a form of plea bargaining (own up or we’ll charge you for the Texas prisoners), or preemptive diffusing for further enquiries. A reaction to what some other powerful people are demanding. And today it is reported he has no idea about Bin Laden making him sound a little clueless. (Although I have often thought that if the CIA had ever found Bin Laden the last thing they would do is release the information of his captivity).

.

Cheney charged over jail ‘abuses’

A Texas grand jury has charged US Vice-President Dick Cheney for “organised criminal activity” related to alleged abuse of private prison inmates.  Source

Here is Cheney on Bin laden:

Cheney told Fox News on Sunday that he did not know whether Bin Laden was alive but “I’m guessing he is,” the vice president said.

“I can assure you, although there has been press speculation to the contrary . . . that the hunt for bin Laden is very much at the top of the CIA’s priority list,” he said.  Source

.

Carrying on on the theme of weakening Jewish Neocon power:

.

Madoff, Adelson and Cayne three billionaires in strong support of the Israeli right, the settlements etc. have all been dethroned. This is cutting the funding of millions and / or billions to the far right.

.

.

If the trend continues, more and more jews will resubmit to their jewish pride (and not be preoccupied with ‘not in my name’). And that pride could be just that the jews are just another people like any other. The Oligarchy insists on a pride, otherwise there is persecution.

Here is a little jewish digression:

Is Madoff Fraud Going to Cause Anti-Semitism?

I am not a big Anti-Semitism guy. I usually cringe when Jews bring up the issue, sort of like the Jewish race card, but the $50 billion fraud by Bernard Madoff, has me worried that we may be in for a wave of Anti-Semitism. The past 14 months of chaos and disaster in global financial markets has been disproportionally affected Jews. From former Lehman Brothers CEO Richard Fuld, to AIG head Maurice Greenberg and now Madoff, almost all the high profile scandals have Jews at the forefront.

.

The blogesphere has been filled with Anti-Semitic posts, blaming everything from the September 11 terror attacks, to the collapse of the global financial system on the Jews. I decided not to link to anyone of these blogs, as I don’t want to help their traffic. Needless to say, Jews may be in for some hard times.

The next three excerpts are from Haaretz and are in chronological order, there is a trend:

Sheldon Adelson pledges annual $200 million to Jewish, Israeli causes

Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire who is "fiercely opposed to the two-state solution" (Tess Schaflan/Jini)

The foundation’s formation puts Adelson at the top of the heap of philanthropic foundations that devote all or most of their giving to Jewish causes. These include the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation in Baltimore, Maryland; the Avi Chai Foundation in New York; and the Koret Foundation and the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund, both in San Francisco. Among the most generous to Jewish causes is the Weinberg Foundation, which gave away over $98 million in 2005, a large proportion of which went to Jewish causes, and the Avi Chai Foundation, which gave away some $33 million last year, all to Jewish causes.  Source

Sheldon Adelson – Jewish philanthropist or meddler in Israel’s affairs?
July 03, 2008 Haaretz

A New Yorker profile of Sheldon Adelson, the American Jew born into poverty who became the third richest person in the United States, paints a portrait of a pro-Israel Republican hardliner, who has even invested heavily in an Israeli newspaper in a bid to propel Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu back into the PM’s seat.

The article explores Adelson’s rise, the riches he has garnered from his casinos in Las Vegas and Macao, his switch from Democrat to Republican, and his efforts to halt the Middle East peace process… Source

World’s richest Jew loses billions in wake of global financial crisis

Jimmy Cayne, Bear Stearns CEO. Cayne lost plenty of his personal wealth when Bear Stearns stock stumbled

Fallen Financiers
Cayne’s Loss Is a Loss for All Jews

So just who is really going to suffer now that Cayne is worth a mere eight figures? The dozens of religious Jewish charities he supports to the tune of $2 million a year. The Jewish philanthropist with a decidedly non-Jewish last name supports dozens of ultra-Orthodox groups. Like Keren Yehoshua V’Yisroel, which hands out free Passover meals to poor families in Jerusalem. Or Ohel Avraham, an organization that sends Jews to Israel gratis and runs a program to help non-Jews convert to the faith. Source

Senate-for-sale case threatens new chief of staff
[Rahm implicated in Blagojevich?]  AP Sat Dec 20 08

.

The friendly rapport Blagojevich and Emanuel shared over the years has suddenly become a troubling liability for Emanuel and the new president he will serve as chief of staff.

.

Emanuel and Obama have remained silent about what, if anything, Emanuel knew of the governor’s alleged efforts to peddle Obama’s vacant Senate seat to the highest bidder.

.


Emanuel’s refusal to discuss the matter publicly, and the few comments offered by Obama to date, have prompted questions about Emanuel’s ties to Blagojevich and what fallout he’ll face as the criminal case unfolds…

.

It was Blagojevich who, seemingly out of nowhere, yanked Emanuel into his scandal when answering reporters’ questions the day before his Dec. 9 arrest, invoking his name in an apparent attempt to shrug off any perception of wrongdoing.  Source

ABC News: Emanuel: I’m Getting Death Threats Over Blagojevich Scandal
12 Dec 2008 … The President-elect’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, said today he … “I’m getting regular death threats. You’ve put my home address on … Source

Is the fall of these Oligarchs by conspiracy? More likely it is just the zeitgeist and them being divorced from reality.
