written several days after the 2006 midterm congressional elections, a post-election recap which deconstructs how Rahm Emanuel tried to SABOTAGE those vital mid-term elections of 2006, in order to help pro-war Republicans maintain their control of Congress... so Bush and Cheney would authorize ANOTHER U.S. war in the Mideast, the attack on Iran that was Item #1 for all Jewish War Lobby (AIPAC) supporters in America in November 2006.
(Here AIPAC members - the Jewish war lobby - CHEER then Vice President Dick Cheney's most bombastic "we must BOMB IRAN, NOW!" speech, http://www.aipac.org/pc2007video/Speeches/Cheney/index.html at AIPAC's annual D.C. conference in March 2007... DESPITE Americans resoundingly voting to OUST the Republican "more wars, more corruption" Congressional majority, voters installing the Pelosi Democrats in Congress 4 months earlier to put some mild restraints on the Bush administration's shameless kow-towing to the relentlessly warmongering Israel war lobby... notwithstanding Rahm Emanuel's serial election-year 2006 pro-war, pro-corruption abject treachery & efforts to sabotage the Democrat's chances in those crucial midterm elections.)
The DWT article explains how Emanual, in his role as then House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chairman, in those critical 2006 primary and general election campaigns, relentlessly shoved either pro-war "Democrat" or blatantly REPUBLICAN candidates down Democratic primary voters' throats, Emanuel relentlessly "sandbagging," or sabotaging anti-war Democrats by denying them DSCC (and DLC) primary funding, and by trying to ban good "red meat" speeches by any Democratic candidates who tried to point out the serial crimes and frauds of the Bush-Cheney administration....
Emanuel was trying to WHITEWASH out of the record the many convictions for crimes by Republicans in 2006, including White House lobbyist Jack Abramoff, convicted of BRIBING CONGRESS; Congressman Randy 'Duke' Cunningham, convicted for accepting bribes; Republican Senator Bob Ney, also convicted of corruption; Republican senior CIA official 'Dusty' Foggo, and of course then Vice President Dick Cheney's own White House Chief of Staff, neo-con 'super lawyer' I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby, charged with PERJURY and OBSTRUCTION of JUSTICE in the CIA 'outing' scandal - the treacherous Rahm Emanuel TRIED TO PUT A LID on any Democratic candidates discussing those REPUBLICAN CRIMES...
...for the simple reason that Emanuel was, and is, a Neo-Con... an ISRAEL WAR LOBBY partisan first - he is in agreement with the unlimited war powers and expanding US wars in Mideast agenda of Bush & Cheney's Neo-Con warmongers such as Abramoff, Cunningham, Libby, Wolfowitz, Perle, Feith, etc. - yet, "Manchurian candidate" style, Emanuel had infiltrated the Democratic Party, and was now, in 2006, PURGING anti-war Democratic candidates from the Democrats' primaries, by backing DLC establishment, pro-war Democrats and OUTRIGHT REPUBLICANS, just as fast as he could.
(Here's the Sam Sedar show blog page with a more easily understood distillation of DownWithTyranny's accounting of how Emanuel relentlessly "punished" - SABOTAGED - outspoken anti-war and anti-corruption Dem. primary candidates in the midterm 2006 elections - http://samsedershow.com/node/262.
(The notion that Emanuel was SANDBAGGING vocal & outspoken Democratic candidates in 2006 is confirmed by video - of Emanuel trying to get then Congressional candidate Eric Massa to STOP using a fiery, rousing, POPULAR campaign speech blasting the pro-war Republicans & Washington establishment, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wa9ga63IokQ

The despicable Emanuel was trying to rob and deny Democratic voters of any expression of outrage after two stolen presidential elections over the preceeding 6 years!)
Understanding how Rahm Emanuel (which is to say "the NEO-CON pro-wars, tax-cuts-for-rich, bailouts-for-Wall Street RIGHT-WING REPUBLICAN war lobby masquerading as Democrats - people like JOE LIEBERMAN, Lanny Davis, Rahm Emanuel, Lawrence Summers, Robert Rubin, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, etc.) was trying to PURGE anti-war and anti-corruption Candidates from winning Congressional races in 2006, is vital to understanding Emanuel's latest treacherous purge: the LYNCH MOB investigations or prosecutions of Senior Democratic BLACK Congressional caucus members Charley Rangel and Maxine Waters, even as the Emanuel White House hands out huge FREE PASSES to the CRIMINAL FRAUD and follies of Citi-bank, Golddamn-Sachs, JP Morgan-Chase, and other Wall Street financial swindlers and economic sabotage larcenists allied with the Radical Right-Wing "MORE WARS, tax-cuts-for-rich, deregulation of critical financial markets, and BAILOUTS-for-billionaires" Neo-Con agenda.
The Pelosi authorized "investigation" into Maxine Waters is a typical Neo-Con SMEAR job, intended to purge from Congress senior, vocal, and powerful anti-war Democratic voices. What is Representative Water's alleged crime?
AS Speaker Pelosi and the 110th Congress were preparing to hand 700 BILLION taxpayer extorted dollars - SEVEN HUNDRED BILLION taxpayer dollars - to "bail out" the FAILED, FRAUDULENT, CRIMINALLY run banks and hedge funds on Wall Street in September 2008, powerful California minority congresswoman Waters DEMANDED that at least a few lousy million dollars of Pelosi's "bailouts" billions be used to help keep a LOCAL COMMUNITY BANK in her district afloat... a bank that Ms. Waters had demonstrated faith in, by investing $200,000 of her and her husband's money in.
THAT'S IT! THAT is Maxine Waters' alleged "crime" - demanding that SOME portion of Pelosi's insane "TRILLIONS of dollars of taxpayers extorted BAILOUTS loot for corrupt New York bankers" be actually used to SAVE a community bank that was serving, not New York, Manhatten, and San Francisco millionaires and billionaires, but instead those savers and home buyers in Rep. Waters' hometown California district.
THAT is how INSIDIOUS, and DESPICABLE, Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi have become: they are now no more than the LOAN SHARK ENFORCERS, the Economic Hit Men, the EXTORTIONISTS, for the Wall Street treasonous, American economy killing banksters & gangsters.
NANCY PELOSI and BARACK OBAMA are now party to RAHM EMANUEL's titanic PURGE of the Democratic Party - the below articles illustrate just how INSANELY CORRUPT Pelosi & Obama are, dishing out BILLIONS of dollars of FREE PASSES to Rubin, Summers, & Emanuel's crony financial thugs at Goddamn-Sachs, JP Morgan-Chase, Citi-bank, and other banks on Wall Street, while Pelosi & Obama bring down the full weight of the entire U.S. government and "Democrat" Congress down on Maxine Waters (and, by extension, any minority and working-class savers in America).
#1. Waters’ Lawyers Accuse Ethics Panel of Double StandardThe above is only a small taste of Rahm Emanuel's NEO-CON, RADICAL RIGHT-WING WARMONGERS & Treasury Thieves insidious, "Manchurian Candidate" PURGE of the Democratic Party....
Lawyers for Rep. Maxine Waters have accused the House ethics committee of applying a double standard by charging her with rules violations for actions that they claim are comparable to the actions of Rep. Sam Graves (R-Mo.), who was exonerated by the committee last year. The investigative subcommittee that filed the charges against Waters rejected this argument and refused to dismiss the case against her in July.
The ethics committee on Monday released an investigative subcommittee’s three formal charges against Waters in preparation for an ethics trial this fall. The committee announced last week that the California Democrat would face a trial, but it did not detail the charges against her. Waters asked the committee to release the full charges so that she could publicly respond.
#2. Citgroup to settle with federal regulators for $75 million
NY Post, July 29, 2010 [note: this is a wrist-slap fine, NO convictions!]
Citigroup has reached a $75 million settlement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for failing to disclose to shareholders the extent of its investment in subprime mortgages.
Federal regulators say Citibank held $40 billion in subprime mortgages late in 2007, but did not share this information with its investors.
The banking giant has not been charged with fraud because, according to the SEC, it did not intentionally mislead investors. Instead it was charged with an omission relating to disclosure requirements.
Citibank’s subprime holdings eventually led to losses of more than $30 billion on those assets.
