Chabad has over 4000 centers worldwide, most run on a shoestring, many are in debt depending on generous benefactors to survive.
There is a very small number of Chabad Rabbis who are powerfully connected, these are few and far between.
The article quoted is sensationalism mixed with speculation lacking credulity.
Gutter journalism.

It’s actually quite funny!

I LOVE IT!!!

The only issue with it is, that it doesn’t make sense why every Chabad House is still in debt 🙂
Good Yom Tov fellow mobsters!

It’s not controversial because it makes any major revelations, it’s inflammatory and borderline anti-Semitic because of the assumptions and implications made. Its fairly obvious that trying to piece together seemingly disconnected people and organizations, and give them some kind of mysterious/malevolent power-grabbing intent, simply because they’re Jewish or connected to Jews, religious ones at that, plays into an age-old stereotype about Jewish scheming to run the globe.

It doesn't come across so good,

and it doesn’t sit well with me!

#9 Agreed!

Lubavitchers are being watched closely wherever we go, whatever we do. As long as we’re clean, the rest is in Hashem’s hands.

so funny
April 9, 2017 10:18 pm

the article is so full of ignorance about chabad its comical it makes me lough they reaaaaalllyyy dont know what chabad is
and about the ridiculous conspiracy its ludicrous it’s not really saying much there are thousands of jews (50% of jews if im not mistaken) that go to chabad

Politico is Lame-stream media, not main stream
April 9, 2017 8:24 pm

They are so far left, nothing they write is all that surprising, including an article that gins up anti-Semitism.

Not that Big of a Deal
April 9, 2017 7:32 pm

I read the whole article and it’s not really saying much other then Kushner went to Chabad. Ivanka went to Chabad, Lev Leviav went to Chabad, and Sapir goes to Chabad. True it’s all in different areas but that’s about all it boils down to. Of course big Chabad donors will work with one another, so no surprises there either. I don’t see why this article is particualy big news, or inflamatory.

Lubavitch is apolitical
April 9, 2017 7:29 pm

scroll down to see the post with Cuomo, Deblasio and other democrats. Or are these politicians secretly part of the Trump/Putin/bigfoot conspiracy theory???

Hope it wont take jews away from going to Chabad Houses
April 9, 2017 7:08 pm

What will be?

one good thing to take away...
April 9, 2017 6:17 pm

Even the Goyim admit that Chabad has a major impact on the world! Did the Rebbe not say Ker A Velt?!
It’s Hashgacha Pratis that this comes right after Shabbos Hagadol and Yud Alef Nissan.

The Chabad Houses are hardly ‘franchises’ but very closely and commonly interconnected. The Politico article does offer a rather convoluted case and framework. While it will, regretfully, be abused for that confusion, it is worth a read through.

The Lubavitch movement is politically hard Right and, sadly, interconnected with the pro-Trump ‘movement.’

The Lubavitchers also have clear connections to America’s Christian Zionist movements who pretend pro-Israel while bringing an incredibly anti-Semitic agenda based on their New Testament interpretation.

More accurate; less emotive information and thought on both sides of this discussion would be most useful.

this is crazy

2)There just jealous

Chabad and governments
April 9, 2017 4:41 pm

The Baal Shem Tov taught that whatever comes your way is by Divine Providence. Seems to me the take away message is to ask if Chabad is too close to and trying to be too close to government officials, and is their money clean. If all is good, great. If not, this is the perfect time to rid of that puffed up arrogance

the truth is out there
April 9, 2017 4:41 pm

Chabad equals bigfoot. We were hiding it behind our beards the entire time!

Call them... YOU can make a difference
April 9, 2017 2:47 pm

BH

Call them and respectfully tell them how you feel. 703.647.7999

It's true!!!
April 9, 2017 2:34 pm

Not only is this true, but Chabad is behind so much more than just this! in truth, Chabad is part of an alien overlord’s plot to take over the world. They do this by increasing the prices of strawberries, and putting Trump in charge. Because Trump is the gematriyah of orange invaders, which means pizza’s coming! All hail the sausages!!!!

It’s Pesach folks—moovin’on! Moshiach Now!

Sad to say

But if you listen to many “establishment” Jews (reform or MO) and anti chabad orthodox litvish, you will hear them spout the similar rhetoric against chabad, that sometimes seems like it’s straight from “the protocols”. Chabad is the Jew’s Jew. Like anti semitism in the outside world, it’s always ok to be anti chabad. From left wing reform to satmar…

And of course Rabbi Shmuley – “America’s Rabbi” is the one to provide the spark to the fire…

I read the article and don’t see any anti Jewish rhetoric per se rather just a set of facts and assumptions. They don’t even come to any conclusions. But it forsure can be used by anti semites as proof for their own biases against Jews which is never a good thing. Either way what is absurd to me is out of so many things to write about you pick this? Are you insane? The political rhetoric has gone more extreme by the day.

What is wrong
April 9, 2017 9:45 am

If Chabad could serve as a bridge between the two countries, what would be wrong with that. Indeed, it is true that chabad is close to both leaders.
