Emanuel Accepts Job as Obama Chief of Staff

By Chris Cillizza
Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel has, as expected, accepted the job as chief of staff to President-elect Barack Obama, according to informed Democratic sources.

Emanuel's hiring ensures that the candidate who ran against the Beltway will have a seasoned Washington hand as his top staffer.

Emanuel was elected to Congress in 2002 to a strongly Democratic Chicago-area seat once held by legendary Ways and Means Chairman Dan Rostenkowski. He rapidly rose through the ranks of the Democratic Caucus -- serving as the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2006 and then as the Caucus Chairman over the last two years.

MEMO TO RHAMBO:


OBAMA MUST IMMEDIATELY REMEDIATE CIVIL LIBERTIES VIOLATIONS... GUARD AGAINST "FALSE FLAG" ATTACKS... AND ENSURE ADHERENCE TO THE CONSTITUTION


Ensuring the civil liberties of all Americans, weeding out prejudice, and reversing policies and practices that violate the U.S. Constitution must be a top priority of the new administration.

The free ride for the forces of hate and extremism, hiding behind bureaucratic programs originally constructed to "keep America safe," must come to a quick end.

One of the first executive orders of the new administration should be sensitivity training for all federal personnel, and a mandatory refresher course on the meaning of the U.S. Constitution.

All federal departments should be screened for policies and ongoing operations that are violating the constitutionally guaranteed civil rights and liberties of American citizens.

All laws and executive orders implemented over the past eight years should be subject to immediate review to determine whether their provisions comport with spirit and letter of the Constitution.


Also, it might be a good idea on Day One for the Obama administration to commission an independent, trusted entity to sweep all government offices, as well as private residences of key officials, for electronic surveillance devices.


BUT WILL THE ELECTION EVEN MATTER? Not as long as government-supported extrajudicial "vigilante injustice" squads are "gang stalking" American citizens, making a mockery of the rule of law:
