The US Big City Jewish Mayor Club Grows Again

The 3 largest cities in the United States - at least for a few months (but maybe longer) - will have Jewish mayors.

New York has Mayor Bloomberg.

Chicago has Mayor Emanuel.

Now, L.A. has Eric Garcetti, who is Jewish by way of his Jewish mother.  He will start on July 1st.  (Mayor Bloomberg's term is over at the end of 2013.)

To what is this phenomenon attributed?

a) It's a vast Jewish conspiracy to take over the world (BWAHAHAHAHA!!!)

b) The American people are starting to learn the value of Jewish leaders.

c) Liberal/Progressive Jews appeal to large urban areas.

d) Jews are getting very comfortable in Galut.  Perhaps too comfortable.

e) בעקבתא דמשיחא חוצפא יסגא and there's no one with more Hutzpa than a Jewish mayor

f) Other __________________

#2, Rabbi David Katz said it all - of course, it's the Erev Rav, as usual, always working their way up in politics and power and then Jews pay.

Yea, Ya'ak, you know that Bloomberg and Rahm made their money and got their power by succeeding at Esav's games and playing by his rules. Why isn't Erev Rav the most obvious choice in the list above? Both know very well how to accumulate mikneh kaved me'od through surreptitious means. I can't speak about the new mayor of L.A. (don't know him), but Why give Rahm and Michael Blowhard kavod? because their mikneh is kaved? Enjoy your 32oz. sugar drink while you can. I am sure Rahm will soon be trying out some of Michael Blowhard's diet plans on the Chicago public. And in the end rather than endearing themselves to the American public, when they are looking for the rats, they will remember which ones were Jews.

Forgot: The real key with regards to both Bloomberg and Emmanuel is that they have made themselves more popular by bashing Jewish settlers in Yesha. Rahm did it working for Obama. And Bloomberg does it on his financial website through a surrogate named Jeffrey Goldberg. They enrich and empower themselves in part at our expense. Settlers are easy to hate because they financially benefit no one by allying with them. The benefit is only spiritual because we have the Truth on our side. So we are a good target for both Rahm and Blowhard on their political rise to the top. They declare the holy to be profane and vice versa. What other evidence do you need?? The real queston is when will Jacob Lew run for mayor? I am not sure that Lew has taken a position on whether Jewish settlements are an obstacle to world peace....Yet, both Rahm and Blowhard have repeatedly made that point. Again Blowhard does it with Jeffrey Goldberg's "analysis", but it is the same thing.

Listen guys, I am an American and a Christian. I want to say upfront I support the Jewish faith and whatever they think is best for them. Until I read your comments I did not know Bloomberg was Jewish! The name would imply I know, but sometimes that is misleading. Anyway, most people that have a problem with him because he completely disregards people's rights, acts like a bully, and uses his money to get his way. It would be nice to see his Jewish brothers remind him that he can not serve two masters...both Obama and God. Just saying.

I 100% agree, and sadly when it really crashes in America, Americans will remember the two Jewish bullies who are now Mayors of two of America's 3 largest cities: Rahm and Bloomberg. And I fear for the Jews who live in those two cities, for they will be scapegoated. This is a very confusing time for American Jews, a time of leaning on the good ole' American broken reed. If I were an American Jew who had to, for whatever extenuating reason, need to stay in America, I would at the very least move to a red state that voted for Santorum, Gingrich, or Perry in the Republican primary and Romney in the General election. Jews would be safer amongst those gentiles for whom America is a nation under G-d than where they are right now. Plus at least in Texas there are lots of new jobs. So parnassah is not the issue keeping them in New York and Chicago. Both Dallas and Houston have vibrant Jewish communities. They are not deserts. Of course Aliyah is preferable, but there are alternatives. Like you, just saying.

The only Jew in the previous list who might have some cover is Eric Cantor because he is really number two behind Speaker of the House John Boehner. And Cantor is usually a fiscal conservative, but he did support TARP along with most of the rest of Congress. Yet, I would add Alan Greenspan to the previous list because he has been blamed for the housing bubble which precipitated in the financial collapse in the previous Shmittah cycle at the end of the Shmittah year itself. Forget about that event as being more than a relinquishing of bad loans. It was the wealth extinction which was the defining event. And just to keep us on our toes, it happened on a smaller scale with the Dot.com collapse followed by 9/11 in 2001, the Shmittah year before that. So from 2001 to 2008 it got bad then worse. The next Shmittah year is 5775. Some say that the Yovel of Yovelot is 5776. So the wealth extinction event in 5775 should be an all time record event. Be prepared. It is really about two years away.

I prefer American Tourister as far as luggage is concerned. At least when the Nesher driver at the airport sees your bag, he knows to speak to you in English.

The larger question is why would Shmittot which usually only apply to Eretz Yisrael become global events (even if Jews in Chu"l do relinquish loans at the end of the Shmittah year). The other aspects of Shmittah only apply the Eretz Yisrael. I believe it is the event of the entire world being immersed in a mikveh in the year 5760 according to Chessed L'Avraham??. So it raised the level of hashgachah on the entire world starting in the year 5760, the number of egg-volumes in a kosher mikveh. So the entire world seems to have a the status of Eretz Yisrael while EY now has the status of Yerushalayim, and Yerushalayim has the status of Har HaBayit etc. etc.

Now this is how Mayor Bloomberg fosters an atmosphere of economic lies and deceit. The GDP numbers today were pretty horrible...again. So the spin goes, the Ben Shalom will now be printing more greenbacks and digitalizing more debt. So QE Infinity is still On. Because the money is leaving the Fed immediately at almost non-existent interest rates to investment houses to invest in the stock market, the stock market goes up. Look at all the smiling faces on Wall St.: Lies and Deceit of the number one Erev Rav Mayor

So all of Mayor Bloomberg's chips are placed on QE Infinity. And by the way, there never will be a day of a significant rise in the interest rate because interest on the National Debt now would go through the roof. Please be careful when this House of Cards and Trail of Lies come crashing down.

OMG. And guess who will be in charge of the Obama Administration's Death Panels from Obamacare??

Yechezkel "Zeke" Emanuel, Rahm's brother!!!!!!

http://www.salon.com/2009/08/11/ezekiel_emanuel/

Are you really that blind to what G-d is setting up in America?? I don't think so.

GET OUT OF THERE!!

I am glad to see that Dr. Zeke Emanuel is "in principle" against euthanasia, but is willing to "consider the wishes of the patient" on these issues under duress. But if he is really tied up with the principles of Obamacare, he will be sucked in to the death cult that this untenable health insurance plan will produce. And he will be blamed.

And in the end, those against Obamacare will blame Dr. Zeke Emanuel if people are allowed to die because the health care plan is to put it mildly, cumbersome.

me too, but a lot of American Jews first come to Israel as tourists before deciding to change their status to Olim. So American Tourister fits those who make Aliyah as tourists first.
