Darrell Issa puts the smackdown on Rahm Emanuel

This was released a short while ago and for some reason, the MSM is not yet reporting it.

Congressman Darrell Issa of CA sent a charming letter today to Rahm Emanuel.  In response to a few Republican comments on the effectiveness of the stimulus, Emanuel orchestrated several threatening letters to the House & Senate members by implying that they would be cut off from their respective state’s portion of the stimulus funds.  An example:

On Sunday, Arizona Senator Jon Kyl publicly questioned whether the stimulus is working and stated that he wants to cancel projects that aren’t presently underway. I believe the stimulus has been very effective in creating job opportunities throughout the country. However, if you prefer to forfeit the money we are making available to your state, as Senator Kyl suggests, please let me know..

I think that’s fine.  The Republican members of Congress have no problem returning that money to the market and allowing us to decide how much of it we want so we can work for it.

However; the stimulus and the metaphorical purse it rests in is being controlled by people who want to force its distribution.  So while they hold it, they are letting it known that the distribution is their ballgame, so if you don’t play by their rules and contribute to their ideology, you’re going to suffer.  So, why not release it back into the economy so that we can decide where it goes as Americans?

Making a deal with the Devil would be more appealing.

Issa writes:

“I and others have dared to bring these facts to the attention of President Obama, the Congress and the American people,” Issa wrote.  “You’ve unfortunately reacted by once again resorting to the playbook of the Chicago political machine.”

Amen!  For the full letter, go right the press release posted on Drudge.

Look for his direct rebuttal to the administration’s promise to stop unemployment from reaching 8%.

  1. “While this type of scare tactic may work in Chicago, it will not work to
    intimidate me or other Members of the United States Congress.”

    Congressman Issa

    Amen!!! If you take an asshole and turn it inside out then you get Rahm Emanuel.

  2. “This was released a short while ago and for some reason, the MSM is not yet reporting it.”

    Hmmm…possibly because the MSM is still worshipping Obama, and any criticism of Emanuel or any other member of the cabinet would amount to an irritation of The One.

  3. They do call him Rahm-bo for a reason.

    The thing is, the strong-arming tactics that Emanuel is using – they only work because people *allow* them to work. It would never have worked for the Bush Administration because had they tried the media would not have stood for it. They would have made the general anti-administration thrashings they administered daily look like child’s play.

    Threats only work if you allow them to. Period. This goes for countries like Iran (we let their threats work because we refuse to do anything), terrorists (just ask Zarqawi), and bullies like Emanuel.

    What would have *really* happened if the networks had said no? Is FOX out of the ratings game now? Not quite. No one shut them down, no one yanked their FCC licensing. Nothing happened. And nothing would have happened to any of the others.

    Rahm-bo’s threats only worked because the media allowed them to.

  4. How much do you know about Darrell Issa ? Read about his past and then tell me you want this guy to represent you in our goverment.
