Is Rahm Emanuel hanging Jussie Smollett? Is Kim Foxx foolish?

Rahm Emanuel is mad, fighting mad. Some actor pretended he was attacked, and Rahm Emanuel gave this actor the star treatment, as looked like an ass. Chicago media types are falling all over themselves vilifying Jessie “Jackson” Smollett. Why?

Rahm Emanuel had international attention and wanted to look like a hero. He also wanted to embarrass President Donald Trump. Rahm and the Chicago Police are not famous for solving any crimes. Rahm does not put the Chicago Police on any cases that he deems minor. Rahm Emanuel put the full force on when it came to Jussie due to his selfish ambitions. Rahm had every intention of finding some white hillbillies and getting as much attention as he could. Rahm wanted to milk this alleged event into making himself into a hero.

It all backfired. When Kim Foxx gave Jussie Smollett a pass, Rahm Emanuel looked like a national moron. When President Donald Trump called out Emanuel, he knew how foolish Chicago and the Mayor looked. Rahm Emanuel lost all three strikes in this mess.

Not long ago, Chicago police detectives went crazy when they were trying to solve who beat up Rahm’s kid right in front of his house. The Chicago Police were at Rahm’s directive to cover-up the case and leave the case still under investigation. Rahm did not want this out what was really going on when his son went across the street. Sometimes in life a deal goes bad and you get in deeper shit than you expect. It is a lesson in life some kids learn by and some do not. The Chicago police were dispatched when they found out a video of the event surfaced and demanded to retrieve it. The Jefferson Park Police Station was popping for answers, and the two detectives came up with nothing. If they kept their mouths shut, they were both promoted by Rahm.

Rahm Emanuel misused the Chicago Police to cover-up for his kids assault, keep his kid out of hot water, and continues to misuse the police to keep the attack under wraps. Problem is, when a video was made, it might be a mistake to release the report when it is full of lies. We will see. So, Emanuel is no different is misappropriating public servants and funds to his advantage. Rahm scams eight years of political promotions and made a lifetime of deals to profit on for the rest of his life. He also enjoyed using Donald Tomczak and DOWM employees to get political power. Maybe the Chicago Press will start asking Rahm a few questions for once. Rahm Emanuel put a noose around the Chicago media, maybe they will take it off in a couple of months. Kim Foxx, tell Emanuel to kiss your azz. But never pull that stunt again. It shows just how dirty Chicago is.

Another Department of Water Management Guru Gone.

We made another phone call to the Department of Water Management media mogul Megan Vidas, an appointee of Rahm Emanuel pal and confidant David “Cocktail” Axelrod. Another day of lies, delusions, misunderstandings, and mess at the Chicago Water Department. Sure enough, the answer to all the DOWM problems was another political elitist Wallace Davis III. Since his high paying job needed expertise and education, failure was going to happen no matter what. It is a self-fulfilling prophesy.

The DOWM has done nothing about the CTR consultants that provide jobs to Park Ridge residents like John “waffle face” Kolomay. John Kolomay an expert plumbing parts stock boy from Niles Home Depot, spends much of the day smoking parliament cigarettes and drinking Dunkin’ Donuts. How is that for value. How does a political laborer continue to soak the Water Department for more money every day? The Chicago Inspector General fears political people, that’s how. John cries and call people that expose him, “troublemakers”.  John Kolomay needs to sign in and out at the same location so people do not pay him to clown around all day while Chicago goes into bankruptcy. Nice scam folks.

If John Kolomay wants to live in Park Ridge, he should quit his job and find a job in the suburbs.

Today, you can pay Wallace another $50.00 for the last time. He is going to join many contractors and city employees for his final goodbye. I attempted to contact him, but the tradition of swiping in the last day and going home is still in effect. I spoke to his assistant that can not find him. I expect Randy Connor and the rest of the DOWM to explain why this man is leaving and what his involvement with CTR and the sewer lining program led to his, “retirement”. Chicago taxpayers are tired of the lies and hiding behind homeland security to steal from honest taxpayers. Enough is enough. I though he was going to get it when a high-ranking lady left out of his house a few years ago in the morning. We know, more on this later. Enjoy the party, the new Mayor needs to clean out the DOWM.

Grumpy Edward Burke and Prickwinkle

Preckwinkle and Burke

Then-Ald. Toni Preckwinkle, 4th, and Ald. Edward Burke, 14th, chat during a Chicago City Council meeting in 2007. Now a mayoral candidate, Preckwinkle has sought to minimize her ties to him. (Nancy Stone/Chicago Tribune)

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle laid off hundreds of workers after her controversial pop tax was repealed in fall 2017, but one county employee who didn’t lose his job was Edward Burke Jr.

Burke had been hired at the county’s Homeland Security and Emergency Management Department a few years earlier after Preckwinkle met with Burke’s then-powerful alderman father about opportunities for his son. And when the layoffs came, two employees who were being paid partly with federal grant funds were let go, while Burke Jr.’s salary was moved off of county funding and onto the federal grant, the Tribune found.

This is a taste of the Chicago Tribune article that shows how Burke the briber gets his power and the Chicago taxpayers get the bill. Burke must go to jail and not get special treatment. More on the Chicago Department of Water Management, Committee on Finance, Department of Finance, and Prickwinkle ties soon. I am glad the Trib is taking off where the Sun-Times retired. Buy your tribune for the rest of the story.

Chicago most powerful District Superintendent Paul Hansen should enjoy the Tribune.

Chicago most powerful District Superintendent Paul Hansen should enjoy the Tribune.

Paul Hansen is the son of former Alderman Bernie Hansen of the 44th Ward. Alderman Tunney bragged to me he got Paul the District Superintendent position at the Department of Water Management. If you want to know how these people get promoted, just follow the feces. The City promised to follow the Shakman Accord and failed. Nothing has changed other than the greatest con man in Mayoral history, Rahm Emanuel.

The lawsuit by Dilan Abreu against the Department of Water Management and various characters that belong in jail is a legacy Rahm Emanuel will live forever with. Dilian always worked very hard, showed up on time, did his job, and should have been awarded with a promotion. Rahm Emanuel and his group of clowns continued political favors for promotions as if nothing ever mattered. When I was talking to Federal Judges about not removing the Shakman Decree, I made a speech about Paul Hansen and his behavior. I also made charges that Joe Ferguson failed to act on years before things got so far out of hand, it took mass firing to save Rahm Emanuel. I will release those emails in an upcoming Federal Lawsuit.

I am really amazed the Chicago Media has wrote anything about the continuing scandals at the Department of Water Management. Rahm ordered a shutdown and the media complied. In the lawsuit, Frank Coconate and Patrick McDonough spoke on behalf of all Chicago Water Department employees. We were fed up with the racism, sex for promotions, wife swapping for promotions, politics for promotions, scam interviews, and physical assaults. Working in a place that demeans people based on color and background is unacceptable.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot needs to remove every political hire at the Department of Water Management and start fresh. Chicago cannot afford this any longer.

Chicago Water Consultant Probe Widens

Is there enough chlorine in Chicago drinking water to remove the feces? Do I mean fishes? No, SHIT. Somebody got things WONG. (Ah HA) Oh, Oscar!!

The City of Chicago Department of Water Management has many important jobs to do. To accomplish that goal they should hire licensed water experts. That can mean lab personnel, licensed plumbers, engineers, scientists, and licensed certified plumbing inspectors. For at least several decades, the Department hired political hacks, nobodies, fired alderman, criminal, child molesters, and consultants.

Rahm Emanuel has insisted on hacks, political operatives, and other non-qualified do nothing to cover-up crimes. Rahm Emanuel has allowed caulkers to again be hired despite a ban to do so. As soon as Plumbers’ Local 130 hired the likes of Mike Tierney, I knew the same old shit would happen again.

The DOWM is now under the microscope as the consultants failed to provide safe drinking water to the Chicago public and have an epidemic of major proportions on their hands. According to sources at the Mayor’s office, Rahm is shutting this down. Rahm ordered the Water Police out of the Jardine Plant to keep things under wraps. The Chief Plumbing Inspector and others just died. The City covered up he was living in the suburbs, but according to several insiders, the Inspector General was blackmailed into doing nothing. More on this later.

According to the Mayors’ Office, the Water Department chief honcho, Julie Hernandez-Pope-Hansen Tomlin, broke her foot and cannot return phone calls. I hope that was from her kicking the former consultants that put Chicago drinking water in jeopardy out of the Jardine Plant. Also, the Commissioner’s Office, the Information Officer Megan Vadis, is not returning calls.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a pipe lining program to avoid replacing sewer mains for a few extra years, and reputedly the sewer lines were placed too close to the water mains and now people are enjoying stool in their water. You might want to have a roll of Charmin to wipe your mouth after drinking water in Chicago folks. Drink bottled water and I suggest you stock up on all you can get.

Drink bottled water folks, you heard it here. This is Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s legacy. This is not the first time this has happened, this was front-page news in the Chicago Sun-Times when kids were drinking feces. In the Sun-Times, Rahm said nothing to a rude dude that said, “Make these media a-holes run some of these little pieces to off-set when [they] run all over the crappy shooting stories and tell them it’s their job to balance the news. We will see if the Chicago Media will investigate this. They won’t.

As the City of Chicago’s most powerful plumber, I say, “Don’t drink the water”. Also, if have a drink with a brown floater on the top of your glass, it is not peanut butter. You have been warned.

Chicago Department of Water Management Bloodletting

The City of Chicago is again quietly attempting to reconstruct. Future Mayor Lightfoot is going to have a major task deciding what to do with the most corrupt Department in Chicago. Is Lori Lightfoot going to attempt to keep the same management team, keep part of the management team, or do a complete overhaul? The Department of Water Management has separated key management personnel into two teams” Team Lightfoot and Team Preckwinkle. The Department of Water Management is under great strain to back the “right candidate” to keep their jobs. I am certain, the entire DOWM team is toast. The Unions are sick of all the horseplay, wasting time attempting to minimize the hassles their members have. Working for the DOWM is akin to a hellish nightmare.

To make things worse, Rahm Emanuel has been promoting many clout heavy workers to union covered positions and they can not be removed from service. According to one Lightfoot insider, that, “Ms. Lightfoot is fully aware and ready address damage control.” “Ms. Lightfoot is ready to right the ship and take drastic measures to have the kind of leadership that will not make newspapers for the next few years.”

Consulting companies hidden quietly in the Jardine Plant are going to strip the bark off the tree. Rahm Emanuel used DOWM contracts to entice companies to move to Chicago. The Chicago Media attends opulent corporate headquarter ceremonies to announce to the gullible public Rahm’s great achievements of landing company after company. Rahm Emanuel in his fancy suit forgot to tell the public, he gave no-bid contracts and set up insider deals for millions of dollars of no bid contracts, arranged takeovers of companies with the outsiders. Rahm Emanuel will make millions in speaking fees right after he steps down. The CTA, the Transportation Department, The DOWM, and others, had Commissioners that just stood by and allowed the criminal entities to flourish.

The face of the consulting business in Chicago is massively profitable, for lawyers, engineering firms, and others. The sale of bonds also profited insiders that know how to keep their mouths shut. Banking is great as Chicago poor struggle to pay the taxes, fines, and fees. I was not surprised how Rahm Emanuel stuck to the script when he announced EXP US Services chose Chicago to be its new home. All the cameras and reporters told a tale of Rahm’s newest conquest for the taxpayers of Chicago. The arrangement was complex as Teng got gobbled up. Amazing. Did Chicago become a winner when this company and others are really given massive amounts of incentives to move to Chicago? When basically the pieces of the pie is just resliced?

The Department of Water Management is again on high alert as consultants had failed miserably to serve taxpayers. The heat is on and folks are getting walked off the DOWM sites. One company in the picture above is called Reliable. They are experts on getting on the public grave train. Many contractors are on high alert for my calls. Today I tried to get a straight answer about a tumbling basin under construction at Belden and Milwaukee Avenue. The entire intersection is blocked off and work is slow a molasses.

The City crews worked hard and did the Lion’s share of the project on the side streets. The connection is part of a “Special Program”. I hope Lori Lightfoot looks at these “Special Programs”.  More on this later.

I am also almost complete with a multi-month video investigation and time delay investigation for Chicago Taxpayers. Somehow video cameras were mounted inside the grills of DOWM parked trucks, rental equipment, front end loaders, and various sites to verify theft of DOWM material. Amazing. Time delay and night vision are amazing tolls of the trade. After Rahm Emanuel leaves office, we are again going to demand the Chicago Police release the FOIA on Rahm’s son attack. Wait till you read that ditty.

I have not made my mind up on releasing several months of investigations into DOWM Management companies hiring folks that live in the suburbs. One of the consultants has a face so demented looking form decades of smoking, kissing ass, laughing at people, and backstabbing, one could not imagine allowing himself such abuse to oneself. Since his bosses are getting fired, I get to that story later. I again demand Megan Vidas to answer her phone. Chicago taxpayers are not paying you to play hide and go seek. Do your job and answer the press.

Mike “the envelope” Tierney and Lightfoot Campaign

Plumbers’ Local 130 for Lightfoot

Plumbers Local 130 is hedging their bets with Lori Lightfoot after having their ass handed to them with the failed endorsement of Willie Daley. William “Willie” Daley has always been in the background making millions for the family enterprises. The Daley family has ruined Chicago finances and profited greatly in the stroke.

The fat guy in the right of the picture is Michael Tierney. Mike Tierney is an opportunist of the lowest type. The Feds are going to want to talk to Mike about the great cash business he has making judges in Cook County. The judges pay millions to the Democratic Organization to get elected and insiders have fake addresses, names, and access to fix lawsuits and cases. The making of the judges was done at the Plumbers hall with Alderman Burke and others making sure the judges that rule the right way are on the ballot.

Mike Tierney got a real scare when Chicago Department of Water Management employees reported his “pay to play” for overtime. The Chicago Inspector General did nothing about it. The hired truck scandal revealed the North District loaded “B-Boxes” stuffed with cash and headed to the Jardine Plant to the pockets of the likes of Donald Tomczak. Mike Tierney always preferred “Caulkers” and said in sworn oath, that “Caulkers are better than Plumbers”. I sure he really meant lining his pockets with cash O.T. bribes.

Mike Tierney could not even get a permit for his own house when he added a second floor. He hired a water main company to front the Plumber’s permit. That Water Main company did not even install residential plumbing. More fraud on Tierney’s part.

When Tierney was interviewed by the bullshit Inspector General during the Hired Truck Scandal, he started running and lost lots of weight. Now it is back on due to the hard-working Plumbers high dues to keep this pig fed. Now that the Southsiders’ are jumping on Lori Lightfoot’s bandwagon, expect the same bunch to keep fixing promotions, water main installation jobs, and consulting at the Department of Water Management.

Careful Lori Lightfoot, you will need some good eyes at the Department of Water Management to straighten out the corruption.  Alderman Burke will make your like miserable until you remove him

Why Aldermen Who Need Extra Help Call Ed Burke

A WTTW News Exclusive

Members of the Chicago City Council are allocated $190,000 out of the city budget to hire three staffers to work in their aldermanic offices. But many aldermen feel that’s not enough to dutifully manage their wards.

Enter Ald. Ed Burke.

For years, Burke ran what amounts to an employee loan-out program from his perch as head of City Council’s powerful Finance Committee. How it has historically worked: Alderman would get an additional employee to work on their staff for free – the staffers were paid using funds from the Finance Committee’s budget – if they asked and Burke agreed. It’s one of many ways the 14th Ward alderman has held sway over his City Council colleagues.

“When faced with a request that their office is overwhelmed and needs help, they’ll go see Ed Burke, everybody knows that,” said one City Hall insider who asked not to be named. “It’s a way of exercising control.”

Burke held the position of chairman of City Council’s Committee on Finance until the end of 2018, when he stepped down after the U.S. attorney’s office charged him with attempted extortion and implied there was a deeper investigation underway. According to a database of Finance Committee employees in 2018, at least five employees who were paid for by Burke’s committee were loaned out to work on the staffs of other aldermen. WTTW News has confirmed the names of five aldermen who accepted the free extra help: Ald Brian Hopkins (2nd), Ald. Marty Quinn (13th), Ald. Walter Burnett (27th), Ald. Nicholas Sposato (38th) and Ald. Matthew O’Shea (19th).

Some aldermen we spoke with say they believe the actual number of employees loaned out by Burke is higher.

Sposato says he sought help because his physical condition was deteriorating due to a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, and that he often needed someone to assist him with getting from one event to another. His staff member is listed in the database as a “Clerk of the City Council” on the Finance Committee’s payroll with a salary of just more than $25,000.

“Two years ago I asked Ed Burke, ‘Look, I have a problem.’” Sposato said. “He goes, ‘What’s that?’ I say, ‘I always need someone with me. Is there anyway possible I can get someone?’ I heard he gives employees to people that are overwhelmed. And he said, ‘Yeah no problem, but she’ll have to work 35 hours a week.’”

Sposato says that Burke never pressured him to return the favor.

“I never got that implication,” Sposato said. “Ed Burke is one of the kindest, most helpful people I’ve ever met. He was always a gentleman. This is something he would do for anybody. He never twisted my arm or asked me for anything.”

Hopkins has an employee who regularly sends out his 2nd Ward newsletter. But that employee is listed as a “Legislative Aide” on the Finance Committee – with a salary of $71,964. Hopkins acknowledged that the employee used to work full-time for his office, but currently works full-time on the Finance Committee and sends out the 2nd Ward newsletter as a part-time job. Hopkins says he pays the employee to perform that specific function out of his staff budget, but that there’s nothing nefarious about accepting the help from Burke.

“The Committee on Finance has for years had the largest aldermanic budget and the highest amount of staff,” Hopkins said. “Those staff that work for them are City Council staff, so when they’re working for other alderman, as long as they’re performing city duties, they’re still considered aldermanic employees.”

A spokesperson for Burnett says the employee he had, paid for by Burke’s Finance Committee, no longer works for the 27th Ward alderman. An employee in Quinn’s office confirmed that a staffer paid for by the Finance Committee still works on Quinn’s 13th Ward staff. (Quinn is a strong ally and campaign worker for Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan.) O’Shea did not respond to calls seeking comment.

City Inspector General Joe Ferguson confirms the practice has been commonplace in City Council and says it doesn’t violate any city hiring ordinances.

“It is a way for aldermen to be indebted to Burke for a favor, and a way for Burke to have one of ‘his’ people on the staff of an alderman that can report back to him,” Ferguson said.

Other aldermen have said the help extends beyond Burke offering free employees.

“Burke has covered things like office infrastructure, cellphone bills, and would help an alderman meet payroll if they were falling short, all paid for by the Finance Committee,” said one alderman who asked not to be named. When asked what Burke wants in return, the alderman said one word: “Loyalty.”

Burke was replaced as Finance Committee chairman by Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s City Council floor leader, Ald. Pat O’Connor (40th).

Neither Burke nor O’Connor returned calls seeking comment.

Chicago Water Department Armed Robbery and CarJack

When will the madness and coverups stop at the City of Chicago Department of Water Management?

When you are attempting to write a story, and the City of Chicago Department of Water Management media department of covering up crime and mayhem, what does a famous author do? I call my homey at the Mayor’s office and get the truth.

I have been reporting the constant crime spree at the Chicago Water Department for years and years. Only one person besides Rahm Emanuel should be blamed. Ralph “No Show” Chiczewski is leading a clown posse making every excuse in the book to hide the shenanigans at the water department. Ralph was sued by activist Andy Thayer of Loevy and Loevy. Another expensive lawsuit for Chicago taxpayers.

Andy Thayer is a friend of mine and a true friend of all Chicago.

Why the heck is Ralph still screwing around the Water Department when he has a nice CPD Police pension? Let’s find out.

On March 5, 2019 the following happened at the 2300 block of North Washtenaw.

A 57-year-old women was assaulted at a City of Chicago Sewer Pipe Job. The City of Chicago has many jobsites with large rental trailers with private security and watchmen. The watchmen do not carry PERK cards, guns, or are trained in security protocols. When the Lady was attempting to leave the jobsite, one of the offenders pointed a gun at the victim and ordered her to surrender her keys. The lady complied and ran down Washtenaw. The offenders took her car and then took off down Milwaukee Avenue.

The Security and Safety Department are in the process of hiring five more employees. Just what we need, more employees to tell Ralph what a great guy he is, as he shows up late to the Jardine Plant every day. Folks get shot in the face when working for the DOWM, assaulted by homeowners, scammed out of their benefits all the time. Maybe David Axelrod can bullshit Rahm about politics, but when he places his pals to do public relations at the water department, make sure Megan Vidis does her job.

William Daley lets down insiders

Not many people know I have more access than the average media T.V. Star. As the City’s most powerful Plumber, (had to say that) I have pretty good inside information that 99% of the population will never know. I leak things out to the media so they can sell some newspapers and T.V. ads to keep them going. Many times, the media shuts me down for a while and allows crap to get out of control. I than call my pals at the ‘Do Good Department”, and they get corruption under control. Sad but true.

I followed Daley and his campaign from the start. I followed some of Chicago’s sleaziest City Workers and Union Goons to get the inside scoop. Daley attracted former city workers fired for misconduct, and some of the nastiest azz kissers I ever met. I give this vermin credit, they know where their bread is buttered. They do not know how to work, but somehow find the next coattail to ride.

I also followed union reps and found them in bed with the business elite in Chicago. All for Daley. Daley was going to keep all the nasty pay to play City contractors and keep the unions running the jobs and contracts. Every insider at the Department of Water Management was going after Daley and making their presence known. Surely, they thought, Daley would keep all the Commissioners, and nothing would ever change.

Big juicy gift cards, hotels rooms, wife swapping, bar hopping, travel across the country.

Fancy clothes, cars, and big deals at the casino. What a lifestyle.

So how could the most well-known name in Chicago politics lose? What an insult. Bill was the inside guy that did all the inside deals. While Rich put his face in public, Bill hide in the boardroom. Obama gave Bill some resume padding with do nothing political jobs in D.C.

The real reasons why Bill Daley lost is because his own brother Richard Daley never said a word on his brothers’ behalf. Bill ratted out his brother and said he was his own man.

Jerry Joyce took the exact votes Daley needed. The Cops and Fireman screwed Daley.

Daley thought the election was his and missed debates. Susana Mendoza stuck it up his tush at debates. Daley taking the debate skip and showing up at the Plumbers Union showed Daley was bought by the Rahm Emanuel hoods. Lawyers and big business wanted “business as usual”.

Many Chicago City Commissioners are in real trouble now. Many Chicago vendors and their no-bid contracts are on the line. No bid contracts with law firms are on the line. Chicago has a real chance to fix the city, I suggest you take a close look at Lori Lightfoot.

Within a few months after the next election, if you see the same contractors and Commissioners, you know you were conned again.
