Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s White House Chief of Staff, expressed a dark philosophy at the beginning of the former president’s first term: let no crisis go to waste.
They used this radical Democrat method of gaining power by creating one crisis after another (health care, Syrian refugees, sexual identity, immigration) and then applied a radical, leftist solution to each problem thereby creating a new and worse crisis with each initiative as the radical fix was put in place. Then a newer solution was needed for the most recent crisis, and so on throughout the Obama administration.
Rahm Emanuel is the liberal Democrat Mayor of Chicago, a city literally going down in flames as record-setting murders are committed in that sanctuary city. Los Angeles and New York city combined don’t even approach the level of crimes committed in Chicago, and our Rahm is the reason for the crisis with his radical ideas, his lack of courage and his unwillingness to enforce the laws of the city and punish the bad guys.
So now Mr. Emanuel is trying to use his idea of identifying a crisis and getting enough momentum to make even more radical, destructive changes, by swearing to sue the Trump Department of Justice for withholding funds that Trump’s Attorney General said would be denied Chicago if they insisted on continuing their sanctuary city policy and break federal law in doing so.
Mayor Emanuel is dealing with a different breed of animal with the Trump administration, and I don’t believe he will win this battle with the principled, logical opinions of the Trump White House and DOJ. Chicago’s liberal politicians have created a crisis in that city that will destroy the reputations of the Democrats who created it forever.
Times have changed with the passing of the Obama administration, and the crises that liberals created during the Obama years will now be taken advantage of by the likes of President Trump to defeat Democrats and their radical ideas.
