Rod Blagojevich trial, Indictment, Obama connection

Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Fox News have done an excellent job of covering the financial crisis, what got us there and what we must do to fix this mess. They have also done a good job of covering ACORN corruption and ties to Obama. They deserve credit for that. Sean Hannity even said that questioning Obama’s birth certificate was appropriate on his radio show. But no one on TV is covering Obama’s eligibility issues and Beck and O’Reilly have insulted many concerned Americans.

I am not certain, but I thought I detected a change in Glenn Beck’s attitude today. Beck is calling Obama a liar. That is reporting the facts. This blog began referring to Obama as a liar in 2008. Why? Because he is.

No one on TV, including Fox, is covering the Rod Blagojevich indictment in the months leading up to his trial. Why is the indictment important? Because it represents the widespread crime and corruption over the past ten years, it reveals the world that Blagojevich, Obama and Rezko operated in and ties Obama to this corruption. It also reveals the attempts to cover for Obama. Read the Indictment and the Criminal Complaint. It will be immediately apparent that the attempt to sell the old Obama Seante seat is just the tip of the iceberg.

Why is no MSM outlet covering the corruption and corruption ties?

Tony Rezko, who had a deep long term relationship with  Obama was indicted on 24 counts and convicted on 16 counts. Rezko is still awaiting sentencing.

This timeline of the Blagojevich investigation, from the Chicago Tribune, reveals widespread corruption prior to the senate seat controversy.

“In their prosecution of Blagojevich fundraisers and allies, dubbed “Operation Board Games,” federal prosecutors detailed a scheme that began only months after Blagojevich took office in which top fundraiser and adviser Antoin “Tony” Rezko conspired with longtime GOP government apparatchik Stuart Levine to split kickbacks from a state pension deal. Rezko also helped ensure Levine’s reappointment to a state pension board.

As part of the investigation, in which 13 people have been indicted or convicted, kickbacks were often the prescribed price of doing high-level business, be it the pension board for state teachers or the panel that decided whether hospitals could expand their facilities. And the extortion efforts went beyond merely enriching the participants to include soliciting campaign funds for Blagojevich.”

Here is a timeline of the investigation:

June 7, 2004: Stuart Levine, a longtime Republican reappointed to the powerful Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board, abruptly resigns on the eve of several important hospital expansion votes. The revelation is the first indication that the Blagojevich administration is under federal criminal investigation.

June 27, 2004: The Tribune discloses that an official for one hospital seeking permission to expand was wearing a federal bug during meetings in an effort to expose extortion attempts by Levine and others for contributions to Blagojevich.

July 2, 2004: Levine resigns from his seat on the board of the state Teachers’ Retirement System. It remains undisclosed that federal authorities had secretly taped Levine’s conversations.

May 9, 2005: Levine is indicted on corruption charges. Federal subpoenas are issued to numerous administration sources, including top Blagojevich fundraiser Antoin “Tony” Rezko

May 20, 2005: The governor’s office acknowledges to the Tribune that Rezko has an ongoing eight-year professional relationship with Patricia Blagojevich’s home-based real estate brokerage, River Realty Inc.

Sept 15, 2005: Prominent Democratic fundraiser Joseph Cari and a former lawyer for the state’s teacher’s pension board pleads guilty in an extortion scheme that steered state pension business to favored companies in exchange for campaign contributions to a high-ranking public official described in court documents only as “Public official A.”

Oct. 25, 2005: The Tribune discloses a federal grand jury investigation into the alleged political hiring practices of the Blagojevich administration, including the governor’s top hiring aide, Joseph Cini.

Sept. 10, 2006: The Tribune reveals that the FBI is investigating allegations by a one-time Blagojevich family friend that she had concerns her state job may have come in return for a $1,500 personal check her husband wrote to one of Blagojevich’s children.

Sept. 17, 2006: The Tribune reports that the Blagojevich administration skirted state hiring rules to give jobs to at least 360 people whose applications were sent through back channels by the governor’s offices and politically connected officials.

Aug. 5, 2006: The Tribune reports that Levine is cooperating with the federal investigation of state government.

Oct. 11, 2006: Blagojevich confidant and top fundraiser Rezko is indicted on federal charges he sought millions of dollars in kickbacks and campaign donations from firms seeking state business.

Oct. 27, 2006: Political insider Levine pleads guilty in a scheme to squeeze millions of dollars from firms seeking state business. In court papers, federal authorities spell out allegations that Rezko and another schemer, identified by sources as Blagojevich confidant and top fundraiser Christopher Kelly, were using their influence for corrupt purposes.

Oct. 27, 2006: The Tribune reveals that Blagojevich’s wife, Patricia, earned more than $113,000 in real estate commissions in 2006 through a woman with a no-bid state contract whose banker husband–a major Blagojevich fundraiser–has business pending before state regulators. Both the FBI and the Cook County state’s attorney’s office begin investigations.

March 9, 2007: Cook County prosecutors charge the woman, Anita Mahajan, with billing the state for more than $2 million in services her drug-screening firm never performed.

March 14, 2007: The Tribune reveals Mahajan’s husband, Amrish, is the driving force behind his wife’s company and helped raise more than a half million dollars for Blagojevich’s campaigns since 2001.

April 8, 2007: Tribune reports that a close business associate of Amrish Mahajan, Amrit Patel, hosted a fundraiser for Blagojevich and was involved in a real estate deal with Patricia Blagojevich, while seeking to expand his Dunkin’ Donuts business into the state’s tollway oases. The deal was never consummated.

May 23, 2007: The Tribune reveals that federal prosecutors have subpoenaed records from Blagojevich’s campaign fund as part of the sweeping corruption probe into whether top aides and advisers exchanged state business and jobs for political support.

Nov. 4, 2007: A Tribune investigation reveals that influential lobbyist John Wyma, a longtime Blagojevich friend and confidant, bought a $650,000 home from one of his clients that sent real estate commissions of more than $30,000 to the governor’s wife. The client, Mark Wight, later won $10 million in state road contracts.

Dec. 7: 2007: The Tribune reports that authorities are investigating Patricia Blagojevich’s real estate business as part of their three-year corruption probe into allegations of favoritism and fraud within the administration.

Dec. 13, 2007: Kelly, a Chicago area businessman and chief Blagojevich fundraiser, is indicted on unrelated federal tax evasion charges involving huge gambling losses.

March 6, 2008: The federal trial of Rezko begins.

April 22, 2008: Ali Ata, appointed by Blagojevich as executive director of the Illinois Finance Authority, admits buying the $127,000 job by contributing to the governor’s campaign, pleads guilty to obstruction of justice and agrees to cooperate.

April 26, 2008: A Tribune investigation reveals at least three of every four $25,000 donors to Blagojevich got something from the administration–including jobs, contracts or favorable regulatory rulings.

June 4, 2008: After nearly three months of testimony that lays bare some of the innermost workings of the Blagojevich administration, Rezko is convicted of using his political ties to the governor to orchestrate a multimillion-dollar kickback scheme.

May 31, 2008: Lawmakers pass ethics reforms targeted directly at Blagojevich and his record-setting efforts to collect campaign contributions from state contractors.

July 30, 2008: The Tribune reports that in the month since lawmakers passed an ethics bill outlawing the governor’s ability to take donations from state contractors, the governor ramped up his efforts by collecting more than a quarter of a million dollars from those with business before the state.

Aug. 25, 2008: Blagojevich vetoes the ethics bill saying he wants it to be tougher and to include lawmakers as well as him.

Oct. 19, 2008: The Tribune reports that more than three quarters of the $700,000 in real estate commissions earned by Patricia Blagojevich’s home-based sales company since 2000 came from state contractors, Blagojevich’s family and others with political ties.

Oct. 23, 2008: The Tribune reports that Wyma, the longtime friend and former congressional chief of staff to Blagojevich, is under investigation by federal authorities, who are probing his lobbying activity for at least one hospital client.

Oct. 30, 2008: Springfield millionaire and longtime political power broker William Cellini, who for four decades played an enormous role in Illinois’ political leadership, is indicted on charges he extorted campaign contributions for Blagojevich.

Dec. 5, 2008: The Tribune reveals that federal authorities have made covert tape recordings of Blagojevich and that Wyma has cooperated with investigators.

Dec. 9, 2008: F.B.I agents arrest Blagojevich and his chief of staff at their homes on a broad array of corruption charges, including asking for favors in exchange for his selection of a replacement in the senate for President-elect Barack Obama.”

Alonzo Monk Guilty Plea, November 2, 2009

 
“Feds track Obama’s visits to Rezko
In the media, Obama always made it sound like he rarely saw Rezko, saying they met for breakfast or lunch once or twice a year. However, the FBI mole John Thomas helped investigators “build a record of repeat visits to the old offices of Rezko and former business partner Daniel Mahru’s Rezmar Corp., at 853 N. Elston, by Blagojevich and Obama during 2004 and 2005,“ according to the February 10, 2008 Sun-Times.”

  3. Methinks Blagojevich was arrested and indicted to take the heat off of pp. Thus, he’s a fall guy of sorts! Not to say he is not guilty of all sorts of indiscretions…but isn’t his trial sometime in June? Well…that might explain why they are ignoring this guy for now, anyway.

    Nationwide, too, we heard little to nothing about Resko…think that was planned as well? I do.

    Remember…anything we do hear in the news is merely a distraction from what is really happening. With all of the focus on unemployment and jobs, why are we pushing more spending on health care? Maybe, because creating jobs would require tax breaks, and they are too busy increasing spending so they can pay for what they have already passed.

    Maybe, too, Blago should do the talk show circuit and gain some sympathy for his plight. After all, he is entertaining!

    Thanks for the summary and update, CW. We must not forget about this. After all, it just adds fuel to the fire of what we already know about our corrupt, criminal WH Resident.

    Happy Day…Linda

  8. Linda.
    The trivializing of Blagojevich’s past concerns me.
    People are being brainwashed into believing it is nothing much.
    Obama’s past was a predicter of the future.
    What we are now experiencing.

  9. one day closer to seeing obama’s vital records.

  10. CW:

    It should concern us all since he and pp have much in common; many of the same players are linked to both.

    However, since the MSM coverage is controlled, there is not much we can do until he goes to trial in June. Even then, it could be trivialized by the media. The trial will go on forever and thus, alienate more of the population…people tire easily. Let’s hope, the trial will bring more info to light. Until then, however, I do not think we will hear much.

    Thanks for your thoughts…Linda

    Air Force One crashed in the middle of rural America. Panic stricken, the Secret Service descended on the area in force. When they got there, the outcome was clear. Only a burned hulk left smoldering in a tree line that bordered a farm.

    Secret Service examined the smoking hulk but could find no remains of the crew or the president’s staff. To their amazement, a lone farmer was plowing a field not too far away. They hurried over to surround the man’s tractor.

    “Sir,” the senior Secret Service agent asked, “Did you see this terrible accident happen?” “Yep. Sure did.” The man muttered unconcernedly. “Do you realize that is the President of the United States airplane?” “Yep.” “Were there any survivors?” the agent gasped. “Nope. They’s all got kilt straight out.” “I done buried them all myself. Took most of the morning.”

    “The President of the United States is dead?” The agent gulped in disbelief. “Well,” the farmer sighed, obviously wanting to get back to his work. “He kept a-saying he wasn’t – but you know what a liar he is.”

    GOP’s Brown branded turncoat for jobs bill vote
    February 24th, 2010

    brown turncoatBOSTON — A month after being crowned the darling of national conservatives, Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts is being branded “Benedict Brown” for siding with Democrats in favor of a jobs bill endorsed by the Obama administration.

    Like the four other GOP senators who joined him, the man who won the late Democrat Edward Kennedy’s seat says it’s about jobs, not party politics. And that may be good politics, too.

    The four other GOP senators who broke ranks – Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, George Voinovich of Ohio and Christopher “Kit” Bond of Missouri – also were criticized on Tuesday. But Brown was the big target on conservative Web sites, talk shows and even the Facebook page his campaign has promoted as an example of his new-media savvy.

    “We campaigned for you. We donated to your campaign. And you turned on us like every other RINO,” said one writer, using the initials for “Republican-In-Name-Only.”

    The conservative-tilting Drudge Report colored a photo of Brown on its home page in scarlet.

    The new senator responded by calling into a Boston radio station.

    “I’ve taken three votes,” Brown said with exasperation. “And to say I’ve sold out any particular party or interest group, I think, is certainly unfair.”

    The senator said that by the time he seeks re-election in two years, he will have taken thousands of votes.

    “So, I think it’s a little premature to say that,” he said.

    Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky wasn’t particularly perturbed about Brown’s vote, saying his election last month has “made a huge, positive difference for us and for the whole legislative agenda.”

    “We don’t expect our members to be in lockstep on every single issue,” McConnell added.

    Political observers said each of the five Republican senators had solid reasons locally for voting as they did, to cut off a potential Republican filibuster on the bill.

    Comment by American Grand Jury:

    Folks, just remember, when the dust settles Scott Brown is NOT the enemy. The Republicans are not our enemy. Sure, we have some RINOs like McCain we need to get rid of but remember this, the Republicans are not trying to subvert our Constitution. The Replublicans are not trying to ram socialism down our throats. The Republicans are not “fire breathing” liberals who want to remake our society into European type nanny states. Cap and Trade, Global Warming, Abortion, Anti-military, Amnesty, ACORN funding, Union payoffs, nationalization of private industry, mortgage bailouts, TARP and Stimilus fraud, repressive taxes, healthcare grabs and welfare programs are all uniquely Democratic Socialists’ programs.

    Our sworn enemy are the Democrates, the media who support them, and the system that keeps them in power.

    Do not make the mistake of trying to split up the Republican party. To do so would play right into the hands of Obama and the Democrats come 2012. The communists in this country would love nothing more than to have us fighting amongst ourselves and to get Obama relected. Don’t give them the opportunity to recover. We have the Democrats and communists on the run right now. Let’s keep it that way.

    Scott Brown will vote against socialism, healthcare, cap and trade and the Democrats in the long run. He is a strong supporter of the Military. That is all we need him to do right now.

    Keep the faith. Never let up on the filth and slime that is behind the Democratic Party.

  21. Don in California

    My opinion is that the MSM (or lsm) is not covering Blagojevich because they believe if they don’t cover it, then it’s not happening. If it’s not happening then the public doesn’t need to know about it. After all, the public is stupid and only needs to know what the msm wants them to know.

  22. Linda…..People couldn’t wait to get rid of Bush….but at least with a Repub as POTUS we had some sort of checks and balances…..NOW…we have NONE….after all the President can’t do much without the approval of Congress and the DemoCRAPS have been in power there since 2006…in four years they have done a lot of damage and the FRAUD in our house was one of them in the Senate at the time they were doing the damage…..yes….these Liberal/Progressives are truly our enemy from within!!

    Some still seek Obama birth records

    More than a year after Barack Obama became president, Hawaii’s Health Department is still flooded with requests by people on the mainland for copies of his birth certificate, The Honolulu Advertiser reported (honoluluadvertiser.com).

    The department gets 40 to 50 requests a month, Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo told the Advertiser. “They’ve been misled to believe that the state of Hawaii gives out birth information to anyone who requests it,” Okubo said.

    State law allows birth certificates to be issued to family members, legal guardians, representatives of a person’s estate or by court order. Democratic state Sen. Will Espero has introduced bills that would widen access to Hawaii birth records but bar persistent requesters. — Melanie Eversley
    _________

    Janice forgot to mention that anyone could get a foreign born birth certificate in the state of Hawaii in 1961.

    But she does not wreak of collusion does she ?

    One of our must-reads every day is Atlas Shrugs and the wildly entertaining Pamela Geller, who today endorsed Joel Pollak for the 9th Congressional race here in Chicago, where Pollak plans on taking down one of the most vile and corrupt members of the House, Jan Schakowsky (the wife of convicted felon Robert Creamer, who wrote Dr. Utopia’s Healthcare Rationing strategy while in prison for bank fraud and check kiting).
    Schakowsky is truly one of the worst human beings we’ve ever met.
    She is absolutely vile.
    If you think Kennedys feel entitled, you’ve never met the Baroness Schakowsky.
    We’ve had several run-ins with her and her staff through the years, most notably during the primaries in 2008 where Schakowsky campaigned for Dr. Utopia in Park Ridge, which is Hillary Clinton’s hometown. That would have been like us going to Indonesia or Kenya to campaign for Hillary. Unseemly.
    You know what, no matter what the odds of taking Schakowsky down are, we want it.
    Pollack seems like a good guy. We still regret not going all-in for Andy NGF-ski in the primaries for Governor here. We’re going to lead with our hearts on this one, regardless of what the odds are of taking down the Baroness Schakowsky.
    We want to do it.
    We hope you will help.
    She’s considered a 100% safe seat. What do you think would happen if we take down her fundraising structure and ran just enough interference to throw her off her game, and make the DNC focus on saving her seat, so that it has to take its eye off other races?

    Who is this “we”? We people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts elected Scot Brown to be our U.S. Senator. That his political affiliation is with the R club has absolutely nothing to do with his obligation as a public official, as spelled out in the Constitution, to represent his constituents.

    The inquiry, chaired by Robert Francis QC, said the Trust was preoccupied with cost-cutting, targets and process, and had lost sight of its responsibility to provide safe care.

    It found patients were left unwashed, sometimes for up to a month, and that some staff showed a “disturbing” lack of compassion for people in their care.

    Jeb Bush: Obama Charts ‘Dangerous Course,’ His Policies ‘Not American’
    http://newsmax.com/Headline/jebbush-obama-dangerous-course/2010/02/23/id/350707
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Jeb Bush is stepping back into the limelight now that his bother’s past administration is looking better every day that Obama is in office.

    I’m still wondering what Bush the Elder and Jeb spoke about to Obama when they paid a housecall to the White House a few weeks ago.
    Hmmmmmm?

    JS @ 10:19 You reprinted someone’s comment at American Grand Jury that said, “Our sworn enemy are the Democrates (sic)”

    That sentiment is so counterproductive to our nation. We are trying to fight big government. The Tea Parties are composed of citizens from all political parties. We cannot afford to be divided like that.

    I say do not make the mistake of splitting up the nation.
    *****************************************

    That comment was from the leader of the AGJ…Bob Campbell and I happen to support him and his comments….right now the leadership is in the DemoCRAP’s court and they are the enemy with their agenda and the candidates they are putting forth that support their Progressive/Liberal agenda…..some may be Conservative but as of yet none of them have stepped forward to condemn this immoral and corrupt administration…anyway I haven’t seen them!

  40. What’s up with General Colin Powell?

    First he endorses an illegal alien, then he defends him on multiple points.

    The cat is out of the bag regarding Barry’s policies and intentions. I’m very surprised at Colin Powell’s ridiculous position….

    What’s up ??

  41. Jeb Bush is stepping back into the limelight now that his bother’s past administration is looking better every day that Obama is in office.

    Obama and Jarrett were successful at something. Giving credit where credit is due, they were the best slum landlords the cesspool of corruption the South Side of Chicago ever produced-everything else not so much. Nobody did slum landlord as well as these two thieves were able to commit and they found many willing co-conspirators.
    The Press does not seem to be able to report accurately on the Tea Party movement at all.
    I’ll make it real simple for them, it is all about the Constitution no more, no less.

  44. Jacqlyn @ 12:18

    Id like to know why a seasoned investigator was murdered while he was looking into why Jeb allowed a company with ties to the PLA (CHINA) to be awarded a contract with the Florida Dept. of Transportation ?

    Not saying he was guilty at all, either the PLA did away with him, or someone else did.

    That story was quietly put on the shelf !!

    I don’t have the link, but the investigator had discovered something significant before he was killed…. They ruled it a suicide, but highly unlikely.

  45. jbjd said……Who is this “we”? We people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts elected Scot Brown to be our U.S. Senator. That his political affiliation is with the R club has absolutely nothing to do with his obligation as a public official, as spelled out in the Constitution, to represent his constituents.
    ******************************************

    jbjd….I don’t want to put words in Mr. Campbell’s mouth but this is how I see his comments……”WE” is everyone who supported him across the country to get elected…..not necessarily everyone was from Massachusetts who helped get him elected….the concern is if he will continue voting for the LIEberal agenda now….whether you are from Massachusetts or not…there is concern that he might not be as conservative as first thought!!

    Former governor of Alaska and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be in Tulsa next month as part of a concert featuring conservative talk show host Glenn Beck.

    It will be Palin’s first official trip to Tulsa. Her most recent high-profile speech was earlier this month in Nashville at the national Tea Party Convention.

    The March 13 concert will also include appearances by country musicians John Rich and Gretchen Wilson. Tickets are available now for $45 to $125 plus fees. Author and commentator Dick Morris was originally scheduled to appear, but he will not be able to do so.

    About half of the 6,500 seats have already been sold, said Tony Holden, the event’s organizer.

    Trading liberty for tyranny
    Posted: February 19, 2010
    1:00 am Eastern

    © 2010

    It turns out, of course, that the much vaunted so-called “stimulus” legislation that was supposed to create jobs as it pulled the economy out of the “great recession” isn’t working. Evan Bayh, the now-retiring senator from Indiana, has famously admitted as much, saying, “If I could create one job in the private sector by helping to grow a business, that would be one more than Congress has created in the last six months.”

    Surprise, surprise! Government spending doesn’t create jobs, at least not without a war on. This fact has to be especially hard for a Democrat to admit. The official mythology of the Democratic Party rests on the tacit assumption that New Deal government jobs and public works programs pulled America out of the Great Depression. This assumption goes unquestioned among rank-and-file Democrats despite overwhelming evidence that the Depression ended only after the United States geared up for round two of the 20th century’s Great World War. Fortunately, absent some profiteering motive, sane people would agree that that particular remedy comes at too high a price. Robert Higgs makes a good point when he quotes Ludwig von Mises (“War prosperity is like the prosperity that an earthquake or a plague brings.”) in the course of substantiating the point that war creates a demand for more workers by literally shipping large numbers of able-bodied individuals off to the slaughterhouse. Just ask G.I. Joe how Rosie the Riveter came by her first job.

    Unfortunately, like the Melanesian people who built their hopes on a classically fallacious post hoc, propter hoc observation, Democratic and RINO Republican voters have been suckered by their political exploiters into building false hopes for prosperity on the observation of the delivery of tax dollars to the party bosses and their cronies. (There are surely some folks in ACORN and other favored elements of the Obama cult who will testify to the return of prosperity in the wake of the stimulus legislation.) Meanwhile, the Obama faction’s Democrats seem willing to imitate only one element of the factual basis for the end of the Great Depression. Their fanatical promotion of abortion (and other practices inimical to human procreation) has proliferated slaughterhouses throughout the land, culling innocent lives that would otherwise have contributed to an expanding work force. The perennial and intensifying financial crisis of the Social Security system is one result.

    Who’s getting richer under the Obama regime? Find out in Tim Carney’s new book, “Obamanomics: How Barack Obama Is Bankrupting You and Enriching His Wall Street Friends, Corporate Lobbyists, and Union Bosses”

    This perverse culling of the population makes no economic sense, but it takes on an ominously purposeful rationality in the context of a political agenda intent on overturning America’s system of republican self-government. It sets the stage for lax border-security policies and indolent enforcement of immigration laws on the excuse that the resulting flood of illegal immigrants consists of people willing to do the jobs there aren’t enough American citizens and legal residents to fill. Though stubbornly high unemployment rates put the lie to this excuse, the elite bipartisan push for amnesty for illegals just as stubbornly persists. One can’t be blamed for suspecting that the motive is political rather than economic. It makes sense that an elite intent on restoring oligarchic rule should be stubbornly interested in replacing ornery Americans (who still think the voters ought to be in charge of America’s destiny) with more tractable foreigners accustomed to the politics of elite domination in their native lands.

    Real interest in restoring jobs and economic prosperity is also inconsistent with the taxation-induced clampdown on the development and exploitation of readily available energy resource involved in the emissions trading (aka cap-and-trade) pollution-control schemes. Here again the particular genius of the American people seems to be especially targeted. Americans have demonstrated a proven capacity to translate the nation’s available resources into productive enterprises that produce both jobs and a high quality of life. While in other regions of the globe people thirst for economic development in the midst of veritable oceans of economic possibility, the great scope individual liberty gives to human drive and creativity has meant that people from those very regions have come to America and worked economic miracles unheard of in their native lands.

    The rising totalitarians of the Obama faction and the RINO fellow travelers openly or tacitly accept the notion that America’s great success is the blameworthy result of oppressing and unfairly exploiting other nations. This is of course why countries most heavily exposed to America’s direct presence and influence, like South Korea, have fared so poorly in comparison to the veritable utopias of socialist regimentation and elite party domination like North Korea. (I’m kidding, of course. The sad ignorance of our day compels me to point that out.) This assumption of blame provides the backdrop for sacrificing the interest of the American people in trade negotiations, schemes of international environmental regulation and lately through the reckless prostitution of America’s good faith and credit to fund profligate and politically motivated government spending financed in ways that threaten to place the economic future of the nation at the mercy of foreign governments and stateless economic interests.

    As I argued many months ago in one of the little thoughts posted on my blog, the Obama faction’s spending schemes have mainly been a stimulus toward tyranny. They have had one unintended and potentially beneficial result, however. They have stimulated deep outrage and resistance from Americans unwilling to cap the prospects of their future by giving liberty in trade for elite domination. Such people can hardly wait until November rolls around. Then they will have their say.

  56. Rules of Engagement or Disengagement?
    By Jim Kouri, CCP

    ……..….U.S. troops involved in President Barack Obama’s much-heralded military surge in Afghanistan are complaining about the new rules of engagement to which they must adhere. As a result of alleged killings of innocent civilians by Afghan and NATO troops, the Pentagon has promulgated strict rules that force soldiers and Marines to hold their fire until they are certain the individuals they face are armed.

  71. Venice, I agree! I miss JustMe’s posts. Very valuable information.

  72. Linda from NY @ 2:39 pm This looks like a very serious storm. Today, tonight-then forget about it. We had some bad ones like this in Chicago-at least now you can prepare. They are predicting high winds, trees down (unless the first couple of storms took care of that) or could be more down due to now the tree is weak. Possible power outages.

  82. Linda,
    Having just read the info wars article posted by Kim, I was thinking again of this poem- funny you should now mention it.

    Kim or Venice,
    If you correspond with JustMe please cut, paste, and send to JustMe as JustMe was an inspiration to me for this piece.

    quote from Infowars:
    “We are their prey. All of us, from the left and right. But if a majority of Americans, no matter where they reside on the political spectrum, joined hands and hearts against the alien Monetary/Banking Cartel, we could take back our country, and in time restore the American Dream, and make the United States the best example of a sovereign nation the world has ever seen.”

    The Prey

    Poison to the truth,
    Your tongue is forked your blood runs cold.
    Evil in disguise,
    Your agenda now exposed.

    Control the opposition,
    Infiltrate and strike.
    Paralyze with fear. . .
    Your venom must divide.

    Coiled in the grass,
    Camouflaged among your prey. . .
    Attack from both directions.
    Allegiances betrayed.

    Four fangs now revealed,
    Dripping with deceit.
    Four dark eyes behold. . .
    America’s defeat.

    Basking in the glow,
    Satisfied you rest.
    Power fills your belly. . .
    A Serpent with two heads.

    Far above a shadow forms,
    Backlit by the sun.
    Descending like a bullet. . .
    Reckoning has come.

    Liberty and Freedom,
    Instinct driven flight.
    Knife sharp talons stretched. . .
    The Serpent in his sight.

    Hunter now the hunted,
    Striking with a hiss.
    The Eagle has engaged. . .
    The deadly fangs have missed.

    Taking to the air,
    Again the Eagle soars.
    The Serpent in his grasp. . .
    A casualty of war.

  83. My personal opinion why the news is not covering the Blago story is because this is the election year and they want all their people in the right places to get the super highway in from Mexico to Canada. Blago was in the toll road industry big-time. He sold it some of highways in Chicago to the same company that Perry sold the Trans Texas Highway to. They also bought up all the little newspapers along the Texas highway to control the message. This also why we are getting no polling news about the Medina race.

  84. I just voted Medina. Voting in the primary here in Crockett is heavy and most republican, so lets hope we get rid of the dynamic duo Rick and Kay.

  85. Fernley Girl,
    Thanks for the tip- I’ll see if I can catch her there.

  86. Prairie // February 24, 2010 at 3:44 pm

    Thanks, I would love to read the story and share it with me boys.

    In January the weather was so cold that the bald eagles were cruising over our houses looking for helpless cats to make a quick meal. Some kind souls decided to feed the eagles down at Goose Spit so they would survive the cold spell.

    Here’s what happened… A former teaching colleague took these photos in front of his home. They are incredible!

    Feeding the Eagles!

    Comox, B.C., Vancouver Island , Jan. 2009.

    No zoom lens used here! I was this close!

    Here are the men who were feeding them, pretty amazing to get this close! It was not too long ago, that the American Bald Eagle was an endangered species.

    Pictures are the whole story; they are awesome! Unfortunately, I could not transport them with the captions. Maybe, you could access more of the story at the sighting. Please let me know if you can.

    Sorry…Linda

  92. Linda from NY @ 4:18 pm
    Isn’t it nice to have some advance warning? Some of the bad storms that we had in Chicago, not as good as the advance warnings of today. You can go to the store and get “provisions” and plan on staying home on the worst day. Have those extra blankets handy just in case of power outages.
    I had to drive in one white out once in Chicago, Oh Lord it was terrible-no depth perception at all. No up, down, right, left. Please do not go out in this storm.

  97. Aviation Gas is different that the gas we pump in our cars. I can’t remember all the details but I think much higher octane.
    http://radiopatriot.wordpress.com/
    Stratfor Intelligence reports that any future plans involving aircraft as weapons will be less likely to incorporate highly fueled commercial airliners, like those used on 9/11. On Feb. 18, 2010, Joseph Andrew Stack flew his single-engine airplane into a seven-story office building in northwest Austin, Texas.
    Stratfor…
    We have received credible reports that Stack had removed some of the seats from his aircraft and loaded a drum of aviation fuel inside the passenger compartment of his plane. This extra fuel may account for the extensive fire damage at the scene. According to STRATFOR analysts present at the scene, it appears that Stack’s plane struck the concrete slab between floors. Had the aircraft not struck the slab head-on, it may have been able to penetrate the building more deeply, and this deeper penetration could have resulted in even more damage and a higher casualty count.
    For many years now, STRATFOR has discussed the security vulnerability posed by general aviation and cargo aircraft. Stack’s attack against the IRS building using his private plane provides a vivid reminder of this vulnerability.

  102. From John McCain:

    “Birther ad”

    =======================

    (Repost)

    At: “The Right Side of Life”

    (Near end of article.)

    “The Republican Party has a history of accommodating presidential candidates whose Constitutional eligibility is uncertain.

    * Chester Arthur — America’s first post-1787-born president whose parents were not both U.S. citizens — was a Republican.

    * George Romney ran for the Republican party nomination in 1968. He was born in Mexico.

    * Barry Goldwater was born (in 1909) in Phoenix, when Arizona was still territory, not yet a state.

    * Lowell Weicker entered the race for the Republican party nomination of 1980 but dropped out before voting in the primaries began. He was born in Paris, France.

    * John McCain was born in Panama, not the Panama Canal Zone as is widely believed. But regardless of whether he was born in the Panama Canal Zone or in Panama itself, he was, in either case, a Panamanian citizen at birth.

    * Bobby Jindal is a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2012. He was born in the United States, but at the time of his birth, his parents were not U.S. citizens. (In a Southern U.S. state, immigrants’ son takes over)

    Given its history of eligibility-questionable presidential candidates, the Republican Party would be accused of hypocrisy if it were to challenge President Obama’s eligibility.”

  103. South, I read on the prisonplanet that the people who bought the rights to the toll roads bought up all the newspapers.
    I wonder how she is doing. I even got a yard sign up for Medina today.

  104. GORDO @ 5:14 pm
    Only one became potus, very possible eligibility problems would have been discovered prior to oath of office. As far as I know Chester A. Arthur lied the whole time re: eligibility.
    This does not excuse Obama or anyone else.

  105. connie,

    Yes, the people behind the Texas Corridor have bought up a lot of news papers and advertising space to push their agenda, and control what you see.

    I’m not sure how Debra’s doing, but we can only hope all those early voters were Medina voters.

    I don’t believe any polls.

    Everyone has an agenda.

  106. Again, McCain sucks at negative campaigning- his ad can only help JD. “Character matters” is the perfect ironic twist at the end. Perhaps McCain is running it to ease his conscience because he sold us out. He finally is doing what he should have done over a year ago- bring this to the media’s attention. Why I think this- because the ad mentions the TWO Parent citizenship” not merely the Kenya angle.

  109. Thanks, Jacqlyn, for the Jim Deakin posting. (He is opposing McCain and Hayworth in the Arizona, August primary). I know Jim personally. He is one good guy determined to beat McCain in that primary, and he may just do it with the batting back and forth between McCain and Hayworth. We’ll see what happens over the next few months. We have to retire McCain–

    Thank you for posting again as well, Prairie. Your poetry is so uplifting in so many ways. Do you have a published book of your writings?

    Oh, for anyone interested, there is a radio interview available (Jim Deakin) for listening on the following:
    http://texasbroadcasting.net/archive/SurvivalCorner_100219.mp3

  110. Bill Richardson:

    “Bill Richardson was born in Pasadena, California. … His mother, María Luisa López-Collada Márquez is the Mexican daughter of a Spanish father from Villaviciosa, Asturias, Spain and a Mexican mother and was his father’s secretary. Richardson’s father was born in Nicaragua. Just before Richardson was born, his father sent his mother to California to give birth because, as Richardson explained, “My father had a complex about not having been born in the United States.” Richardson, a U.S. citizen by birthright, was raised during his childhood in Mexico City.”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Richardson

    =========================

    Was he really born in Pasadena, California?

    Have seen no evidence his mother was a US citizen.

    Is he a dual citizen?

    =========================

    There appears to be an agreement:

    Politicians and MSM are not permited to discuss citizenship in relation to POTUS eligibility. Any mention of the subject will result in immediate attack from “The System”.

  114. I posted the following comment in response to HillBuzz’s post, “Something is DEFINITELY up in Hillaryland”, but apparently they didn’t like the humor, as they have deleted it…

    The Top Ten Things That Are Up In Hillaryland

    10. Dalai Lama met with Hillary and explained the difference between Buddha and Bubbha.
    9. Hillary concerned about Iran using the nuclear option to further the oppressive regime’s desire to implement a one world healthcare system.
    8. Along with 26 other members of the Mossad, 3 of which fled to Iran, Hillary has been implicated by the Dubai police in the assassination of Hamas Terror Chief.
    7. FLOTUS asked Hillary to take dictation.
    6. Hillary discovered that the all of the First Grandmother’s voodoo dolls wear pantsuits.
    5. Hillary is upset that the Missile Defense Agency’s new logo doesn’t include a picture of her requesting more sanctions against Iran.
    4. Hillary received a text message from Stanley Ann…
    3. Hillary promised seat in Obama’s politburo.
    2. Hillary conflicted over number 3 above because she still has a conscience.

    And the number one thing that is up in Hillaryland:

    1. Bubba’s twitter…

  158. Cantor says House doesn’t have the votes to pass health bill
    By Jordan Fabian – 02/24/10 09:27 AM ET

    The office of House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (Va.) said Wednesday that Democrats do not have the votes to pass fixes to their massive healthcare reform overhaul.

    Cantor released a memo to the press Wednesday morning in which he said that the Democrats’ new plan to merge the two bills under budget reconciliation rules in the Senate might make it impossible to pass through the House.

    The House passed its healthcare bill in November by a count of 220-215. This time around, Cantor predicts that Democrats will muster as few as 203 votes, well short of the 217 now needed to pass the bill due to recent vacancies.

    The Virginia Republican said that three new House vacancies, looser abortion provisions contained in the president’s proposal than the original House bill and political risks posed by using the reconciliation tactic will force Democrats who voted for the House bill in November to switch their yes votes to no.

    more . . .

    http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/83375-cantor-says-house-doesnt-have-the-votes-to-pass-health-bill

  159. From the same article . . .

    In an interview on MSNBC Wednesday morning, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) accused Cantor of “playing games” but did not say whether House Democrats have the votes to pass the president’s fixes.

    Clyburn previously predicted that the House would pass the new package by a wider margin than it did its original bill.

    The full list of potential vote-switchers is:

    Rep. Joseph Cao (R-La.)
    Rep. Jerry Costello (D-Ill.)
    Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper (D-Pa.)
    Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.)
    Rep. Steve Driehaus (D-Ohio)
    Rep. Brad Ellsworth (D-Ind.)
    Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio)
    Rep. Dale Kildee (D-Mich.)
    Rep. Daniel Lipinski (D-Ill.)
    Rep. Jim Oberstar (D-Minn.)
    Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.)
    Rep. Charlie Wilson (D-Ohio)

  162. How about in 2012 we run some women and black Conservatives that are not OLD ENOUGH and see if Lieberals and RINOS balk at that.

    I remember Teddy Kennedy when he INHERITED his Senate seat was not old enough and had to sit out while they had a place holder until he turned the required age (28 I think). Why is AGE important by the Constitution and it has to be strictly adhered to BUT Natural Born Citizen, which comes first because the Fathers knew it was Most Important, is ignored?

    If BO was 34 he would have been asked to step aside I don’t see actually much of a problem if a President has one yr less experience I don’t think I was any smarter or experienced at 35 than I was at 34 BUT allegiances are Very Important and as we can see from BO he favors all teh family of the person that abandoned him as a child even though he doesn’t know them. He favors his daddy’s style of economics and governing: COMMUNISM. He favors Mooslum Religion and favors the Koran over the Bible as shown by his constant quotes from the Koran.

    Natural Born Citizen is much more important than being eligible by age to be President.
    Invstigate the Photoshopped President.

    It doesn’t phase the Party of Failure while they had worse ratings than Bush they constantly harped on Bush’s poor ratings even though theirs were worse and They Actually Had More to do with the Economy and the direction of the country, since they got a majority in Nov 2006, than Bush did.

    Watch the Left Hand while the Right Hand tries to distract you.

  167. PRWH, he’s a mucker alright…

    Yep. Don’t know why the whole country, the whole world, even, can’t see that. So obvious.

  169. Hi, Sue K. — whenever you get a glimpse here

    Give Mitzi and Lucy an extra treat from me, will ya? Thanks.

  170. I was listening to the news tonight and they were reporting about the horror story re: the pedophile pediatrician, more than 100 children so far. Unfortunately as the story went on it reminded me of Obama. In more than 20 states doctors like this a merely “passed around” since no one wanted to make waves, upset the practice etc. So due to lies and worse the cover-ups more and more victims are added to the list.
    Water seeks its own level, there are those pedophiles, politicians who with contrivance will get themselves into positions where they never should be-part of their equation is willing accomplices and/or co-conspirators. Either no one checks, or if they do it is glossed over-that does not make it right. Many complaints were made over the years, they were ignored too, sound familiar?

  171. Terminu from drkatesview.
    I’m from Chicago and I know that there was a market for phony documentation. What did they call them “whole sets”. What I think they did was instead of going to the expensive “masters” they went to some cheap hacks-hence the mess you refer to in your comments.
    “This was enough to fool “enough” Americans, who vastly now see him for the fake he is, but given the “importance” of their crime, you’d think they’d do a bang-up job about it. Now they have to scurry and cover their tracks and fight off lawsuits, and eventually one will penetrate and expose everything about the fraud Obama. Maybe his handlers are stupider and more inept than we originally even thought”

  172. We the People must stop letting ourselves be willing accomplices to the duplicity in the government. Stop voting the same people in again and again!!!!

  173. Just came from the Obama File site where I saw the new logo for missal defense people.

    What people fail to see in this logo, and Obama’s logo, is the three red lines. Those red lines represent the blood and death of the Trinity. The father, the son and the holy spirit defeated by Muslims.
    I guess Obama is planning on turning those missals on the American Christian population if he has his way.

    I was listening to the news tonight and they were reporting about the horror story re: the pedophile pediatrician,
    ******************
    We already know acorn was/is(?) trafficking in children. Wouldn’t surprise me at all to find out we have pedophiles in our Congress and other high places.

    Like you said once before, people in high places who get caught in a crime, don’t pay, they just get “turned” and blackmailed into using their positions to do what the blackmailer wants.

    Makes me furious and sick at the same time – that pedophiles get by with hurting children for years and years while people KNOW
    what’s happening and do NOTHING to help the victims.

  175. FEBRUARY 24, 2010 Obama Readies a Fallback Health-Care Proposal

    Scaled-Down Plan Would Expand Insurance to About Half as Many People as Pending Bill Envisions

    He must be feeling the defeat already.

    Ol’ Bully Boy BO — Get the message! KILL the BILL! Drop it already, like, off the table. Like, we are done here.

    A yes vote for obama deathcare is not a victory — it is political hari kari.

    BO – Reality check time. You believe you are president, but we don’t and we never will. Remove yourself from our White House.

    I second that!

    “While the identities of the 32 victims began to surface”
    Coming from Chicago due to front page news, you learn a lot about crimes. These 32 murder victims, were murdered by John Wayne Gacy who was NOT investigated because he was a “respected member of the community” something to do with clowns. Horrendous-God Bless Dr. Stein who was the Cook County Medical Examiner at the time. To this day the words respected member of the community make me sick. So many lives could have been saved had they at least checked, so many people told them Gacy was the last person they visited. Construction jobs for young guys in summertime. Trust but verify, that is why so many get away with crimes from the highest to the lowest-Obama will never be trusted due to the sealing of all of his records nor should he be.

  178. In Illinois, I think Patrick Hughes and Mr. Hoffman (don’t remember his first name. Was it David?) need to run as independents.

    Hoffman came within, I think, 6% of the mob boss guy . Given the vote fraud machinery still in place in Illinois, Hoffman very possibly had the actual majority. I think he should go for it.

  179. bob strauss, very disturbing.

  180. On the video above: Everything they say REALLY APLLIES TO THEM, the party of Failure.

    Listen to these HYPOCRITS especially Dodd and apply it to what they have done since BO got inaugurated.

  181. The LIEberals just prove time and again they have no sympathy for any human that they consider an enemy adn laugh at Conservative Heart Attacks.

  182. Kim, Yes it is, I hope people wake up before it’s too late. This usurper must be removed.

    Lawyer who challenged Obama: Ineligibility could prove costly
    USJF chief: ‘This is completely uncharted territory’

    An attorney whose legal brief in a case challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility revealed a Supreme Court can remove an ineligible chief executive now has released an analysis confirming that if Obama isn’t eligible, he could be charged under a number of felony statutes.

    And that’s just on the federal level; any state charges would be in addition, as would charges against individuals who may have helped him in the commission of any of the acts, according to Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation.

    Kreep has been involved in several of the cases that have raised challenges to Obama’s occupancy of the Oval Office, including two in California. One is on appeal in the state court system and names California Secretary of State Debra Bowen as defendant. The other, in the federal court system, is on appeal before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

    Both make claims on behalf of individuals and political candidates in California over Obama’s presence on the 2008 election ballot.

    I hope and pray that we can get this into court, soon!!

    At a Sun City Grand town hall with Sen. John McCain:

    “McCain disagreed with an audience member who suggested presidential candidates as well as their parents should have to be born in the United States.

    McCain also questioned if being born in the United States should still be a requirement for presidential candidates.

    “If someone (was born elsewhere) and came here as a 1 year old, and served a productive life, I’m not sure,” McCain said.”

    If you are concerned by the DSSA Act, I would recommend you all get your hands on a great reference book:

    Peterson Field Guides
    Eastern/Central Medicinal Plants

    Authors: Steven Foster/James A. Duke
    Edited By: Roger Troy Peterson
    Sponsored By: National Audubon Society, National Wildlife Federation, and
    The Roger Troy Peterson Institute

    ISBN 0-395-46722-5
    Publisher: Hoghton Mifflin

    This Field Guide is used by Special Forces/Operations survival training programs. It Identifies, lists, and gives pictures of the most common plants used in modern pharmacology. If the time comes when you can not buy dietary supplements, you can literally cultivate your own. There is nothing in the proposed law that says it will be illegal to grow your own plants, and make them into said dietary supplements. The funny thing is most of these medicinal plants are easy to grow, grow just about anyplace, and most are considered “Common Weeds” by gardeners and average citizens.

  186. If all else fails, make a police report, a crime has been committed. * Natural born citizens, are those born in a country to citizen parents. God Bless America. !!!

    Maybe JMc knows something his audience did not know. That is, he wasn’t even a U.S. citizen until he was almost 1 year old. By statute.

  188. Hey jbjd,
    The conclusion of that thesis is that the Constitution of the USA is racist.
    You see where they were really coming from.

  189. Don in California

    McShame just doesn’t believe in the Constitution. Didn’t he take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution??

  190. Don in California

    Good night to all my friends and those that are not my friends. May God bless and keep you. Talk tomorrow.

  191. From WND – December 03, 2008

    ‘Natural-born’ requirement called ’stupidest provision’

    “‘… and assumes birthplace a proxy for loyalty’

    An associate lawyer in a Chicago-based firm whose partner served on finance committee for a then-Sen. Barack Obama has advocated for the elimination of the U.S. Constitution’s requirement that a president be a “natural-born” citizen, calling the requirement “stupid” and asserting it discriminates, is outdated and undemocratic.

    The paper was written in 2006 by Sarah Herlihy, just two years after Obama had won a landslide election in Illinois to the U.S. Senate.”

  192. I miss SueK. Hope you and your kids are doing well!! And where is Oldsalt78?

  193. Morning, folks.

    Another day closer to seeing Obama’s vital records.

  194. There is little doubt remaining that we have an ILLEGAL US Government. I personally think that Gary Kreep has been right all along. I have been following his work since USJF first became involved in this pursuit. The law is the law. Nobody is above it, not even Soetoro.(Even thought he thinks he is). He cannot continue to make law by XO. This circumvents Congress. It is not hard to see where the US is being taken. If we sit idly by and let him he will turn the US into another France, or UK. In addition he is a PRACTICING MUSLIM, and is obviously INTENT upon surrounding himself with MUSLIMS. He has shown that he is sympathetic towards our sworn enemy of war, by discharging the charges against the murderers who blew up the USS COLE. This was a blatant act OF TREASON for which he has not yet been arrested,or prosecuted. He aided and abetted the ENEMY in a time of war. Yet the Congress,nor the SCOTUS has taken any initiative in pursuing charges against him.
    There is an endless list of names that he could be called. All, both profane,and otherwise would probably be suitable. Gary Kreep has been called a lot of names himself by Soetoro supporters. Like Orly Taitz he has felt the sting of penalties,etc. that was unfairly imposed upon him,by SLIMEY SOETORO COHORT US Federal Court judges. The SLIMEYIST of all are NINE JUDGES who call themselves the US SUPREME COURT, in addition to their tiny little belly crawling SNEAK clerks. It would never do for one of these little scum bags to ever get out amongst MEN. They would have their heads HANDED to them.
    It goes without saying that the hangman’s garrote is waiting for the necks of these people. In the end they along with their co conspirators will feel the bight of the HANGMAN’s GARROTE. I will watch in absolute JOY,and I will cheer the hangman on. Then we can get about the job of repairing our country.

    Wouldn’t all of this seem to be one hell of an overreaction. After all look at how many people lost their lives and were otherwise injured by failing tires a few years ago, that were MADE BY A US TIRE COMPANY. But as I remember there was no Senate hearings, nor was any tire stores raided by the FBI. This only shows the level of insanity within our government. I am sure that Toyota has far too much to lose not to act to correct the alleged problems at hand forthwith. Sadly our MORON government can’t seem to understand that the designer’s engineers are far better at handling the problem than SENATE JACKASSES. I also mean this LITERALLY as well. It is mostly the JACKASSES who are doing all of the RAVING,and RANTING.

    I sadly think about the money, resources, and time spent on this atrocity of a bill that could have been used to improve the healthcare of the 25,000,000 uninsured; oh, but that’s not the real objective, is it??

  199. There is nothing in the proposed law that says it will be illegal to grow your own plants……………………….YET!!!

  200. Just wanted to say thanks for posting all this and following this. You do a better job than the MSM and web readers look to insight on pages such as yours to keep informed. I’m also enthused to see that several other people have looked in here. It’s good to know that someone will help keep us abreast of the corrupt ties of these people running our government, even when the MSM fails miserably. Your posts always show up on http://www.rezkorama.com .

  201. Thanks ttj.
