    Pay-to-play: 70% of Rahm Emanuel donors received lucrative contracts " Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!
    What do you get when you combine the most corrupt city in the United States with a mayor that got his political debut serving in the Clinton White House? Well, according to data presented by the Chicago Tribune today, it may just all add up to the second most sophisticated 'pay-to-play' operation in know, because no one will ever come close to beating the Clintons at their own game.

    Not surprising this is.

  • Infowars and Alex Jones is your source? The guy who believes that the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax perpetrated by the government? The guy who sais that the Clinton Campaign team ran a child sex ring out a pizza parlor? THIS is your source about Rahm "Mayor 1%" Emanuel?!

    You need better sources.

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - A compulsive liar.

    Oh boy, more conspiracy-based logic and from the king of conspiracy theories! Alex Jones!!!

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - A compulsive liar.

    BTW and not without surprise, Infowars deliberately misrepresented.the Chicago Tribune article of three days ago. Would that not be "fake news" on the part of Infowars?

  • Indeed.

  • the only value in this post is knowing that the opposite is, no doubt, true.

  • Pedrito I offer you the RED PILL, that's all.

    So, you guys, think that Rahm is a good and honest man?

  • both can be true. not an either/or situation. there is usually a kernel of truth in big lies.

  • Basically, anything published on Infowars is not even worth discussing. It's a well-known sensationalist and distortionist website.

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - A compulsive liar.

    @moah - Spot on comment moah. More than one thing can be true at the same time. We do not live in a dichotomous world. Well, some of us do not.

  • Infowars is a part of Jones' entertainment business that included his failed attempt in 1998 to restore the Branch Davidian Church. It's entertainment and no different than Saturday Night Live or Judge Judy or The Apprentice. This posting is entertainment; not local politics.

  • Pedrito I offer you the RED PILL, that's all.

    So you're saying that Rahm is not corrupt?

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - A compulsive liar.

    ^More dichotomous thinking!

    Thinking? I think not.

  • Nan

    No, Pedrito. We're saying that the worst kind of manipulation is when there's a kernel of truth wrapped in a layers misinformation and lies. That - by definition - is fake news. I hope you're smarter than that....

  • perdito, if you want to win this argument, seek out some trustworthy info. the google is your friend.
    and here is a clue that you have hit on fake news. i googled chicago tribune rahm pay to play. i got a ton of blogs w the same lead in as this infowars thing, and the actual trib article probably only came up because i included it in my search.
    here is what the article ACTUALLY said-

    With the February 2019 mayoral election still a year and a half away, Emanuel has collected $3.1 million in high-dollar contributions. And more than $2.1 million of it — nearly 70 percent — has come from 83 donors who have benefited from actions at City Hall.

    70% of the money, not 70% of the donors. different, wouldnt you say? not saying it is good, but saying it is a kernel of truth distorted into a pretty big lie.

    people need to get more media literate or our democracy goes down the drain.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Mo, trolls don't care what the article actually said.

  • Pedrito I offer you the RED PILL, that's all.

    So are you saying that Rahm is honest and good?

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - A compulsive liar.

    @Pedrito - Attempting to build another straw man argument?

  • Gabriel Resident of PRRP

    Yes, Rahm is a corporate Democrat who should be voted out. But we need Bernie alternatives not Trump White supremacists.

  • helen, yes,by definition.
