Abdelhamid Chaib sentenced, Rezko coschemer, Obama contributor, Nadhmi Auchi

From the Chicago Tribune October 19, 2010.

“A former business partner of convicted influence-peddler Antoin “Tony” Rezko was sentenced to three years of probation Tuesday for his role in a bank fraud scheme over the sale of Rezko’s pizza restaurants.

Abdelhamid “Al” Chaib had pleaded guilty to a single count of obstructing the Internal Revenue Service for his role in securing a $2.6 million loan from GE Capital Corp. to finance his bogus purchase of Rezko’s string of Papa John’s pizza franchises. The loan was in fact a scheme to obtain loan money to prop up Rezko’s businesses while Chaib would have no meaningful ownership of the pizzerias.”

Now for the rest of the story. Once again I would like to thank Evelyn Pringle for the fine work that she did early on to expose the truth about Obama. The highlighting is mine.

As you read the following, remember that it was written in mid 2008.

“Curtain Time for Barack Obama – Part 4 (Mansion Deal)”

The solution to the problems arising from the unsuccessful attempts to shut down Operation Board Games would be for Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) to become president and issue a bipartisan pardon to all members of the “Combine” who funded his seat in the US Senate. The scam worked when Scooter Libby took the fall for the Bush administration.”

“Rezko-Obama Real Estate Deal

When Obama started setting up the purchase of the $2 million mansion with Tony Rezko in December 2004, he did not know he would be the presidential candidate in 2008. He therefore did not think about the repercussions in a presidential campaign. The Combine’s plan was for Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to be the candidate at that point. Operation Board Games put an end to that plan.

Mike McIntire and Christopher Drew tracked Rezko’s “financial maneuverings” during the year that Rezko and Obama were entering into the real estate deals through an examination of lawsuits, documents in the Board Games cases, and land records, for a report in the March 8, 2008 New York Times.

They discovered that Rezko was fighting off lenders and investors trying to collect on defaulted loans and failed ventures the whole time. “But he side-stepped that financial dragnet by arranging for the land to be bought in his wife’s name, making it the only property she owned by herself,” they report.

As a result, when the Obamas bought part of the lot in January 2006, “the money they paid was beyond the reach of Mr. Rezko’s creditors, including one conducting a court-ordered hunt for his assets to recover a $3.5 million debt,” the Times notes.

Obama claims he had no idea Rezko was broke. During his March 14, 2008 Sun-Times interview, he said: “I was shocked – as I think a lot of people in Chicago were shocked – to find out the difficult financial straits he was in because I don’t think anybody suspected that at the time.”

Obama told the Tribune on November 1, 2006, that the lot next door had to be sold separately because, “It was already a stretch to buy the house.” However, affidavits filed in the Rezko case in November 2006, show the Rezkos had no money. Rita’s only income was a $37,000-a-year job when she paid $125,000 in cash and obtained a half a million dollar mortgage at the Mutual Bank to buy the $625,000 lot.

When documents unsealed in the case revealed a $3.5 million loan made to Rezko a month before the real estate deal, the money transfer raised “the question of whether funds from Nadhmi Auchi helped Mr Obama buy his mock Georgian mansion in Chicago,” a February 26, 2008 report by James Bone and Dominic Kennedy in the Times of London noted.

Obama claims he got the money because he pulled off a marketing coup for book sales with his speech at the July, 2004 Democratic National Convention and got elected.

“Because of the attention I received during Senate campaign and the convention, my book sold well,” he told Sun-Times in an interview on March 14, 2008. “I came into a sizeable amount of money that allowed us to move,” he said.

The way Obama set up the deal, the mansion and the strip of land were placed in a Land Trust with the Northern Trust Corporation. The price of the mansion was $1.65 million, and Obama came up $330,000 to obtain a $1.32 million mortgage at Northern Trust Bank.

Cook County land records show the deed for the lot to Rita was recorded on June 20, 2005 and she conveyed the land to Northern Trust Company Land Trust #10209, on January 11, 2006. According to a web site for Marquette Bank’s Trust Services, a Land Trust provides shared ownership protection when real estate is owned by more than two people, and divorce, legal disability or the death of one can hinder the sale of the property.

With the establishment of a Land Trust, a judgment against one beneficiary cannot create a lien on real estate held in trust and ordinary legal proceedings against one will not cloud the title, according to Marquette site.

The investigation by the New York Times found that between November 2002 and January 2005, at least 12 lawsuits were filed against Rezko and his businesses, including one by the General Electric Commercial Finance Corp.

In fact, GE obtained a $3.5 million judgment in November 2004, but put off collection in the first half of 2005, while negotiating for payments with Rezko, the Times reports. The lawsuit involves loans Rezko obtained for the sale of Papa John’s pizza parlors.

Papa John’s cancelled its franchise agreement with Rezko in 2004 because he was behind in payments. Rezko then transferred the pizza chains to companies owned by “personal friend(s) and long-time business associate(s),” to operate under trade names such as Papa Tony’s and Pizzeria Zia, according to a lawsuit filed in 2005 by Papa John’s.

Papa John’s alleges Rezko controlled the chains and the associates were running “front” companies. The companies in the lawsuit include AR Pizza, Chaib Investments, Newco Pizza and LayaZia. AR Pizza, Newco Pizza and LayaZia have their principal places of business at the same location as Rezko Enterprises.

Auchi’a firm, General Mediterranean Holding, owns 50% of AR Pizza and Rezko owns 50%. Auchi’’s lawyer told the Times of London the $3.5 million loan to Rezko in May 2005 was to “assist the financial position” of AR Pizza.

His attorney told the New York Times that Rezko was supposed to use the money for his pizza business, and said, “as far as my client is aware, Mr. Rezko used the loan for its intended purpose and not for any other purpose.”

However, the Times review showed Rezko only made a $1 million payment to GE months after he received the loan. GE finally obtained a court order in October 2005 and began seizing even the smallest assets. As the Times explains:

“The company’s lawyers filed a claim against the Rezkos’ home and began issuing subpoenas to banks where Mr. Rezko had accounts, finding very little cash.

“Court records show that G.E. was due to be in court on Jan. 5, 2006, for example, obtaining an order to seize $1,297.39 from one … checking accounts.”

“Less than a week later,” the Times wrote, “Mrs. Rezko sold a 10-foot-wide strip of the empty lot to Mr. Obama, for $104,500.”

Now Obama claims he never knew the lot was in Rita Rezko’s name until he read about it in the media. During his March 14, 2008 interview, the Tribune asked him: “When Tony sold the garden lot in his wife’s name, didn’t that strike you as odd?”

“You know,” he said, “I have no idea why he did it. I don’t think he was intending to hide something, because if he was then, you know, using your wife’s name, Rita Rezko, probably wouldn’t have been the best way to do it.””

“Did he ever explain to you what he was doing?” the Tribune asked.

“No,” Obama replied, “I didn’t discover it until the issue of him purchasing this lot broke through, uh, through you.”

Next trial will focus on pizza parlor schemes

Rezko’s next trial will focus on the fraudulent financial transactions with GE and the mystery of what happened to the missing $3.5 million from the loan made to Rezko the month before the mansion deal may be resolved.

The corruption in this case involves the Illinois Finance Authority. The IFA was established, “to support the Governor of Illinois’ economic development agenda,” and “IFA approves about $3 billion in project financing each year,” according to its web site.
Co-schemer Ali Ata was appointed to lead the IFA. He made a $5,000 donation to Obama on June 30, 2003.

Talat Othman was appointed to the IFA Board, and he donated $1,000 to Obama on June 30, 2003.

David Gustman was made chairman, and his wife, Lisa, also gave Obama $1,000 on June 30.

Co-schemer Abdelhamid Chaib is the former the director of Rezko Concessions. Chaib’s wife was appointed to the Department of Employment Security Review Board. Obama received $5,000 from Chaib on June 30, 2003.

This indictment alleges that Rezko fraudulently caused GE to extend more than $10 million in loans to finance what Rezko portrayed as sales of two different groups of Papa John’’s pizza restaurants in the Chicago and Milwaukee areas.

After closing on the loan for the Chicago stores, the loan became delinquent, and Rezko caused additional false financial information to be submitted to GE in asking for forebearance on the default, the indictment says. It also alleges that Rezko defrauded investors by concealing that he was transferring the company’s assets to himself and a straw purchaser.

As part of the scheme, Ata signed a letter on Finance Authority letterhead that falsely made it appear that Dr Paul Ray had applied for financing with the IFA for acquisition of the pizza restaurants. The letter stated that Ray’s financing would be recommended for approval by the IFA Board on March 15, 2004, and that the IFA would guarantee 50% of the total $16 million.

Ray contributed $3,000 to Obama on June 30, 2003. Ray also gave Obama $2,000 on October 2003, on top of a donation of $1,000 on December 31, 2002. Ray was an investor in Riverside Park.

During the Rezko trial, Ata testified that he told Rezko that IFA board members were worried over the approval of financing for the Papa John’s deal because there could be negative publicity due to Rezko’s association with the pizza businesses

But Ata said Rezko scoffed at the concerns. “He said as far as the publicity, he will get the governor’s office to approve the transaction, and as far as the board,” Ata told the jury, Rezko said, “We put them there.”

Rezko eventually called Ata and dictated the language of a letter that said IFA was guaranteeing half of the purchase price. But before the deal could go through, Ata brought the chairman, David Gustman, and the board’s financial advisers to Rezko’s office to tell him they did not believe the financing was good for IFA. Ata said Rezko seemed to agree, but he never gave back the letter Ata wrote on Ray’s behalf.

More Combine members throw in the towel

Testimony in the first trial opened the door to evidence in other Board Game cases and more Combine members threw in the towel. Ali Ata entered into a plea agreement in the GE case a week before the trial was set to end and he was the last witness to testify.

Ata pled guilty to charges that included tax fraud, and lying to the FBI in saying he received nothing in return for $50,000 in contributions to Blagojevich when according to the plea agreement, he did “receive something for those contributions, specifically employment with a state agency … with an annual salary of approximately $127,000.”

According to court filings, Ata also lied when he “intentionally concealed that he paid Rezko approximately $125,000 in cash … during 2003 and 2004 so that he could obtain a state appointment and then ensure its continuation.”

On his last day on the stand, Ata told the jury he finally agreed to cooperate with the Feds after a person delivered a threat to him. He told prosecutors he lied to the FBI because he was encouraged to be a “team player” by people acting on Rezko’’s behalf and when he received a grand jury subpoena in late 2005, people contacted him in an effort to stop him from cooperating.

Ata testified he gave Rezko the money because he wanted to keep his job. He told the jury he used to drop by Rezko’s office and would see other top officials waiting to see Rezko and in order to keep their jobs people had to follow orders and become a team player.

For instance, Ata said, he often saw Kelly King Dibble, a former Rezmar employee, who became director of the Illinois Housing Authority. But when Dibble balked at hiring a Rezko relative, Ata said, Rezko passed a message to Dibble “congratulating her on her new assignment,” and the new assignment was unemployment.

“It emphasized that you need to be a team player and follow the rules if you’re going to be a part of the administration,” Ata told the jury on May 1, 2008.

Dibble donated $250 to Obama on June 30, 2003, $250 on January 23, 2004, and $250 on April 25, 2007. She is now an attorney with the Northern Trust, Obama’s Land Trust holder. On September 30, 2007, Dribble donated $1,000 to Obama presidential campaign.

Ata testified that he and Rezko once delivered $50,000 in cash to the home of co-schemer Christopher Kelly and left it in the car while they went inside. Ata said Rezko told him, “there’s somebody from Downstate that’s coming to pick up the money.”

Ata said he delivered another $25,000 to Rezko in early 2004, because Rezko said it was needed to pay contractors to stop them from filing a lien on Blagojevich’s home.

Ata also explained that Rezko made a problem with a state lease disappear in exchange for a 25% ownership in a real estate partnership. When Rezko’s attorney pressed for details about how that worked, Ata said Rezko had gone to Michael Rumman to get the matter resolved, the head of the Department of Central Management Services.

Ata says that after he met with the Feds for the first time, he got a voice-mail from Rumman saying Rumman was traveling with “our friend,” meaning Rezko, asking Ata to delay the meeting with investigators.

The other person who pressured Ata was Orlando Jones, the godson and former chief of staff to the deceased former Cook County Board President, John Stroger. Jones was a former vice president of Rezmar development company and an investor in Riverside Park.

Prosecutors say Jones also wanted Ata to lean on another Rezko associate to get him to stop cooperating. Ata told prosecutors that Jones reassured him that Rezko was working to kill the Board Games investigation by getting the Bush administration to fire Fitzgerald. “Don’t worry, the plan is still in place,” Jones told Ata.

Jones committed suicide in September 2007, after news of a pending indictment in a pay-to-play scheme reaching all the way to Las Vegas hit the media. “The discovery of Jones’ body came just two days after FBI agents approached Jones,” FBI spokesman Frank Bochte told the Sun-Times. Jones “cordially declined” to speak with Chicago agents.

The scheme in Las Vegas involved a company called Crystal Communications, lead by Martello Pollock. On June 30, 2003, Pollock donated $1,000 to Obama.

According to the Sun-Times, Jones had been interviewed by federal authorities a while before his death about fees he received from pension fund deals approved by the Illinois Board of Investments.

Allison Davis, Rezko’s real estate partner, and Obama’s former boss at the Davis, Minor & Barnhill law firm, was appointed to serve on the Board of Investment. Davis is president of the Davis Group. On January 29, 2003, the group donated $2,000 to Obama and on June 30, 2003, it made a contribution of $6,000. Obama also received donations from the group of $2,000 on July 7, 2004, $2,000 on January 29, 2007, and $2,300 on June 30, 2007.

Prosecutors allege that another member of this pension Board, Joe Carriatore made a deal with Rezko where his brother would get a seat on the Board for a $50,000 contribution to Blagojevich. He donated $1,000 to Obama on June 30, 2003. Carriatore was an original investor with Rezko in Riverside Park.

Velma Butler was recommended for this Board, but did not get the job. She gave Obama $1,000 on June 30, 2003, and donated $25,000 to Blagojevich three weeks later on July 25, 2003. Butler was also an investor in Riverside Park.

Combine members of Middle Eastern Descent

Ata is a former president of the Chicago Chapter of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. He represents “a deeper corruption” in the Arab American community, “an aspect of the story that has not received much attention,” according to a May 2, 2008 report by Ray Hanania in the Southwest News-Herald.

Hanania points out that many in the Arab community are calling Ata a “rat.” But he’s not alone, Hanania says:

“The real rats are those who used their positions as “leaders” to rape and pillage their own community. The real rats are the so-called ““leaders” who worked to benefit themselves pretending they were doing it for the benefit of the community.”

In his report, Hanania explains how Ata and others would help organize political dinners attended by Arab Americans from the suburbs at which politicians where “honored.”

“These Arab community “leaders,” he says, “would tell the community that if they bought tickets to their “candidate’s nights,” their organization fundraisers or donated through them to local politicians, these politicians would respond by giving the Arab American community empowerment.”

“In truth,” Hanania says, “these political leaders lied.”

“They did get jobs, contracts and clout,” he notes, “but the people who benefited were not members of the community but rather the relatives, children, friends and business associates of these leaders.”

Ata has done well as a member of the Combine. In 2004, his net worth was $12 million, according to the Tribune. In one state deal, Ata and partners, Faysal Mohamed, Fuad Mohamed and Refat Zayed, “took in more than $3.2 million from taxpayers by leasing a West Side office building to the state over 10 years,” the June 6, 2005 Sun-Times notes.

Rumman is also of Middle Eastern descent. He left his $120,900-a-year job in April 2005, after “Auditor General William Holland accused CMS of wasting taxpayer money, skirting state purchasing laws and failing to document hundreds of millions of dollars in alleged savings the agency attributed to its hiring of high-priced consultants,” the March 11, 2007 Sun-Times reported.

Rumman went on to become a major investor with the Iraqi-born Auchi and Syrian-born Rezko in Riverside Park and Rumman was the point man on a now canceled $200 million power plant contract in Iraq.”

  1. Thanks CW. This Chicago crime syndicate has always fascinated me since Pringle wrote the series of articles and you started covering it in depth. Any rational person can see that Obama was in up to his eyeballs.

  2. Simple things like the underwriter turned whistle blower at Mutual Bank on the inflated appraisal of the lot. At the minimum, using logic, who buys a lot, when the rest of your financial empire is crashing down around you, at maximum price and then sells off a portion of that lot thereby devaluing the potential? Nobody that’s who.

    I’m convinced that Mutual Bank shut it’s doors to sweep this whistleblower case under the rug. Any word if that case is still alive, CW?

  3. Sam Sewell | October 20, 2010 at 1:58 am | From the Madsen article:

    “WMR has learned from a reliable intelligence source that the CIA has secretly contracted with a retired top CIA official who was a principal actor in the Iran-contra scandal, to uncover any information that could be damaging to Obama from his past. On the table are any documents and information on Obama’s place of birth, his paternal parentage, and his past employment activities. By contracting outside the CIA’s normal channels, the agency is seeking ”plausible deniability” should documents or information damaging to Obama be uncovered and subsequently leaked to the media.”

    Is the President Diagnosable? DSM-IV-301.81

    http://thesteadydrip.blogspot.com/2009/06/is-president-diagnosable-dsm-iv-30181.html

    Sam Sewell | October 20, 2010 at 2:02 am | A few points to add to the discussion:

    1. Personality disorders are unique in that they are exaggerations of traits we might all have. Example: if I carefully pack and plan for a trip including selecting which underwear I will wear every day and color coordinate my ties and socks I would not be accurately diagnosed as having an obsessive compulsive disorder. The traits observed must result in a dysfunctional impediment to carry a DSM code. If I was so careful about packing that I missed my flight (dysfunction) then we might want a diagnostic referral for me. So, it is completely possible to exhibit many of the traits of a personality disorder without meeting the diagnostic criteria.

    2. If there is one personality disorder there may be more. They come in clusters. The Narcissistic Personality Disorder is part of the “B” cluster disorders. (Cluster B (the Dramatic, Emotional, or Erratic Cluster) is comprised of the Antisocial, Borderline, Histrionic, and Narcissistic Personality Disorders.) So, if a person has one personality disorder he/she may have two or three more.

    3. Obama exhibits several traits of the “B” cluster disorders but I do not think he can be seen as dysfunctional. So while a personality can be difficult and problematic it is not the same thing as being “diagnosable”.

    4. I am sure we are all agreed that there is no such thing as an “In absentia” diagnosis.
    5. So, in the interests of accuracy, it seems appropriate to say that Obama exhibits many of the traits associated with Cluster B (the Dramatic, Emotional, or Erratic Cluster) is comprised of the Antisocial, Borderline, Histrionic, and Narcissistic Personality Disorders, but he probably does not fit the diagnostic criteria for any of the cluster “B” disorders. That does not mean that he is not dangerous to the public and a PITA to all who know him.

    6. If one were to inappropriately do an “in absentia” diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder it would also be necessary to describe the behavior observed in Obama that is associated with the other cluster “B” disorders.

  5. CW – The most telling paragraph in that whole article was this one –

    But Ata said Rezko scoffed at the concerns. “He said as far as the publicity, he will get the governor’s office to approve the transaction, and as far as the board,” Ata told the jury, Rezko said, “WE PUT THEM THERE.”

    With protesters in France entering a seventh day of strikes and demonstrations against draconian austerity measures, many political observers in the U.S. are now wondering how long it will be before similar scenes unfold on American streets, with even Time Magazine now conceding that the prospect of a civil war in the States “doesn’t seem that far fetched”.

    What is wrong with Obama?

    Along with the brain issues are personality disorders: narcissism, paranoia, passive-aggressiveness. There’s even the possibility of the most destructive character defect of all, an antisocial personality. Untreated abuse can foster antisocial traits, especially among boys.

    Why? Because this is a damaged person. Obama’s fate was sealed years ago growing up in his strange and poisonous family. Later on, his empty vessel was filled with the hateful bile of men like Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers.

  12. Here’s a nice little punch list of just some of the things WRONG with mortgage finance fraud. And……surprise, surprise……it sure as hell looks like the government helped the banks, not the citizens.

    http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=169697

    (This ties in nicely with FS’s YouTube post at 9:37)

  13. Beck is educating folks (hopefully DE voters are listening) about the separation of Church and State issue in the debate between Coons and O’Donnell. Maybe the ill-informed media who chastised her for a correct answer she provided as being wrong are listening too. They may learn something but I doubt they will retract the lies they reported.

  14. Ex-dem Pollster Pat Caddell says repubs will not win as big as they could have because they have failed to nationalize the election, i.e., the rinos let bo, pelosi and reid off the hook.

  15. That explains why it is so close in many areas instead of a blowout.

  16. So if I’m reading that post right…Obama was involved with the Iran-Contra affair…that would explain lots of stuff!

    He is definitely one sick puppy…whether he’s had a brain injury from working for the CIA.

  17. The interconnections of the criminal enterprise is starting to show. Please take note and realize that this is only just the beginning. Of course some very wealthy ones aren’t a surprise but realize there are many many more.

    This is very huge….

    Breaking the big taboo 911 & the New American Drug Lords

    http://www.madcowprod.com/10182010.htm

    Sometime ago in another issue from Daniel he showed Bruce Adreani’s plane flown by his brother-in-law Clyde O’Connor. I met Clyde in the early 90’s at my house when married. He had just come in town and we were to have everyone over. Clyde and I were talking when Bruce walked up and started discussing starting a new business with Clyde. It wasn’t until later that Bruce announced the two of them were starting a farm, yeah sure! They bought large jet planes (~2million each) and started distributing huge shipments of drugs. As Bruce warned Clyde while in front of me, “these people we’re going to work with don’t screw around! Everything has to be on the up and up.” Clyde noded his head to confirm he understood.

    In the later 90’s while up to that time Bruce had more to tell everyone about what was happening, the latest was that “something big was planned soon that would start everything”. This was 911 but then they were reviewing three different sites with which to go after. As for me, I thought this was fantasy until I saw 911 happen on TV while in my office. Luckily and it could have been a God Thing, I already did something about it.

    Please note that I don’t have all the answers. This criminal system is far too huge for anyone one person to know about all of it. Even in the family when the family needed to get something done through the criminal system they would know who to talk to to learn who to connect with.

    As mentioned by me earlier, the second phase of the former Governor’s trial will include so much you might want to think you’re in the middle of a movie. But that’s only the start as there still is a lot more to come…….

    By Jordan Fabian – 10/20/10 08:30 AM ET

    A Pennsylvania Democratic House candidate on Tuesday admitted to helping a third candidate get on the ballot in the hopes he would siphon votes away from his Republican opponent.

    Bryan Lentz, the Democratic nominee running for the seat being vacated by Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.), said he knew that volunteers from his campaign helped Tea Party candidate Jim Schneller.

    “If somebody’s already made the decision to run, I didn’t think that ‘helping’ with the process of signature petitions was improper,” Lentz told told the Delaware County Daily Times editorial board in an interview

    Have not seen a situation where things were so tight as this current WH. Staff fear levels very high. Abnormally so. I caution you on your own attempts. Be very careful. Something beyond just the election cycle and loss of House going on now. Received reliable word that a “serious” scandal is being navigated by WH officials right now. At present unable to get clarification. Source is scared. I am not comfortable pushing so hard as to possibly endanger them. Attempting follow up on information with another source. Will contact you with that information when it becomes available. This sounds very serious though, and WH is cracking down on containment hard. Very hard. NYT is said to know something. Keep eyes n ears open as it appears, based on what I have so far, this will start to break open sooner than later. Developing.

    Lastly, told HC turned down VP offer from WH. ”Thanks but no thanks.” MO infuriated with refusal from HC, though MO did not want Clinton as VP regardless. Feels Clintons do not respect them and cannot be trusted. HC still considering run in 2012. BC pushing hard with donors to support 2012 HC campaign and getting positive response. Believe HC to reveal more intent shortly after midterms. Developing.

    Really will try to talk in person soon. Again – be careful. The current climate has become much more serious. I mean it. STAY ALERT. BE CAREFUL. WATCH YOUR BACK.

  21. Glenn Beck just challenged George Soros to come on his show. He said Mr. Soros reminded him of Mr. Potter in the movie”It Is A Wonderful Life.”

    I wrote this last year –

    GEORGE BAILEY NEVER EXISTED

    How many do not remember that most wonderful movie “It’s A Wonderful Life” which is shown around Christmas every year? To me it seems to be shown less and less as the years go by. This Frank Capra directed movie starring Jimmy Stewart (George Bailey), Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore(Mr. Potter) and Henry Travers (Clarence the Angel) is the perfect metaphor for what has happened to our country. In a nutshell Mr. Potter wants to buy out Mr. Bailey’s small savings and loan and suddenly one day George’s Uncle Billy misplaces $8000.00 (Can you believe 8K when we now we talk in the Trillions?) . This causes a run on the bank and Mt. Potter a chance to get the bank. Poor George has a weak moment and tries to commit suicide by jumping in the river . Clarence the Angel comes to the rescue. George tells Clarence he wished he had never been born. Clarence grants him this wish and the scene becomes one of a total nightmare. What was once a clean innocent city has turned into a sleazy, noisy, drunken and debauched city. The name has been changed to Pottersville(USURPERVILLE) from the original Bedford Falls. Needless to say George realizes his importance to life and a good teary ending.
    Looking around at all the mess this country is in I would have to come to the conclusion that what we are witnessing is “The George Bailey Never Existed” version.

  22. From: http://www.bradblog.com/?p=8109

    “D.C.’s Internet Voting scheme which was hacked with the University of Michigan fight song just days after experts had warned against the entire scheme, J. Alex Halderman, asst. professor of electronic engineering and computer science at the university, was, indeed, at the heart of the hack.

    He details tonight that he and a small team of students were happy to participate in the test that D.C. election officials had announced, with just three days notice, inviting hackers to try and penetrate the system they planned to use this November, as developed with the Open Source Digital Voting Foundation.

    Halderman writes in his explanation of how they did it:

    Within 36 hours of the system going live, our team had found and exploited a vulnerability that gave us almost total control of the server software, including the ability to change votes and reveal voters’ secret ballots.
    And if you think that’s chilling, Halderman goes on to note that all cast ballots on the system were modified and overwritten with write-in votes, all passwords taken — including the encryption key, which e-voting supporters constantly suggest will keep such systems safe — before they went on to install a back door to let them view any votes cast later, after their attack, along with the names of voters and whom they voted for…

    •We collected crucial secret data stored on the server, including the database username and password as well as the public key used to encrypt the ballots.
    •We modified all the ballots that had already been cast to contain write-in votes for candidates we selected. (Although the system encrypts voted ballots, we simply discarded the encrypted files and replaced them with different ones that we encrypted using the same key.) We also rigged the system to replace future votes in the same way.
    •We installed a back door that let us view any ballots that voters cast after our attack. This modification recorded the votes, in unencrypted form, together with the names of the voters who cast them, violating ballot secrecy.
    •To show that we had control of the server, we left a “calling card” on the system’s confirmation screen, which voters see after voting. After 15 seconds, the page plays the University of Michigan fight song. Here’s a demonstration.
    Halderman also notes what many of us have been trying to tell Internet Voting proponents for so many years: it’s incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to make the system secure…

    The specific vulnerability that we exploited is simple to fix, but it will be vastly more difficult to make the system secure. We’ve found a number of other problems in the system, and everything we’ve seen suggests that the design is brittle: one small mistake can completely compromise its security.

    I described above how a small error in file-extension handling left the system open to exploitation. If this particular problem had not existed, I’m confident that we would have found another way to attack the system.
    Sounds like this Internet Voting thing for overseas and military voters, which has now been called off in D.C. as of last week’s hack, is as brilliantly thought out and executed as the electronic voting and concealed vote counting that nearly the entirety of the nation is currently saddled with at local polling places.

    Halderman, as we also noted yesterday, was also behind hacking Pac-Man onto a Sequoia touch-screen voting machine last August, as well as on the Princeton team which initially hacked Diebold’s touch screen system with a vote-flipping virus back in 2006.”

  24. Free Speech @ 5:28 pm | As a former Chicagoan I have to say this is rich of Mrs. Obama-her husband is a corrupt slum lord from that cesspool of corruption the South side of Chicago, with some serious personal lifestyle issues to be kind-she is a patient dumper along with possible other crimes and she demands respect. No one who has knowledge of their activities could respect them-with these two I cannot image what could be scandalous at this point.

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

    It is interesting that the WH Insider termed it a “serious” scandal. I suspect that algore et al have offered incriminating evidence against bo, and agents now have prima facie evidence that ties bo directly the identity theft and vote fraud scandal in Nashville and elsewhere.

    Remember, it is alleged that bo’s campaign stole computers from the Nashville Election Commission with the names, social security numbers and Dates of Birth of every voter in Nashville.

    It is incredible that bo, algore, jim cooper, karl dean, torry johnson, ronal serpas et al thought that bo could get away with crimes like that.

    For information on Crimes committed by the BHO regime:

    The post you just made reference voting machine hacking is just another reason this country MUST go back to paper ballots…with INK on the thumb after you cast your vote…and I don’t mind standing in line for an honest vote.

    The crooked scumbag democrats are set to steal yet another election it looks like…I can’t speak for anyone but myself…but if this happens there just might be open rebellion in this country…

    The honest, hard working, American has taken just about all he/ or her intends to take from those commie, socialist bastards sitting in our government and the White House….

    Right now, I’m so damn mad I could eat ten pounds of nails!

  31. Dems to Smother Us with Twenty New Bills in Lame Duck Session

    http://conservativeactionalerts.com/blog_post/show/1348

    Are you and your family prepared for the legislative tsunami that Congress is gearing up to strong-arm once they get back from vacation? If not, you better grab your raincoat and head for high ground because this storm is going to be a doozy.

    Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, the Dems have announced they will smother our country with 20 disastrous new bills. It’s government gone wild in Washington. It is critical we block the passage of these bills before it’s too late. We must take advantage of our window of opportunity and defend our country against this madness!

  32. “Confirmed: Hawaii Department of Health Can Issue a Hawaii Certificate of Live Birth AKA Long-Form Birth Certificate; Obama Got $10.00!?”

    “How will the slobbering obots spin their way out of this one? A person at Free Republic posted a copy of her Hawaiian Certificate of Live Birth that she obtained from the HDoH in September of 2010, including her purchase receipt, which are both embedded below for your viewing pleasure. The obots have spent the last two years spreading disinformation saying that Hawaii no longer issues the ‘Certificate of Live Birth’ and instead only issues the short-form ‘Certification of Live Birth’ and that is the reason why Barack Hussein Obama Soebarkah AKA Barry Soetoro can’t release one.”

    “Someone on the FreeRepublic thread thought prehaps that the woman in my video was the woman who did provide a redacted copy of BOTH the order form receipt AND her recently issued a long form birth certificate. Let me state that IT IS NOT the same woman. I did not know that there was a bet, nor anything about this woman, nic: Danae. I can prove that my video was taken in mid-July 2010, and Danae applied for her copy on Sept. 28, 2010.”

    ===========================
    “It has been stated on record, by Janice Okubo, at the Communications Office, Hawaii State Department of Health, that the long form birth certificate, otherwise called the “Certificate of Live Birth” can’t be had.

    It’s not that they don’t have them on file, it’s that they don’t issue them automatically when a person requests a copy of their BC.

    A long form Hawaiian birth certificate can absolutely be had if you specifically request it.”

    I was just about to post this info about Danae’s BC but read the current comments first. And what do you know we’re on the same topic……………..

    You may want to see an official Hawaii long form BC.

    On a bet, a Freeper acquired a long form copy of her BC and posted it on Free Republic. Apparently an obot challenged anyone to provide a recent Hawaii BC and he now has to donate $200 to Free Republic.

  35. Rush Really “Gives” It to Rep. Issa

  36. Here’s an excerpt from an article that explains the mortgage real estate fraud:

    Thus the “credit enhancement” scenario with tranches, credit default swaps and insurance had to be created so that it appeared that the gap was covered. But that could only work if the parties to those contracts claimed to have the loans. And since multiple parties were making the same claim in these side contracts and guarantees, counter-party agreements etc. the actual documents could not be allowed to appear nor even be created unless and until it was the end of the road in an evidential hearing in court. They used when necessary “copies” that were in fact fabricated (counterfeited) as needed to suit the occasion. You end up with lawyers arriving in court with the “original” note signed in blue (for the desired effect on the Judge) when it was signed in black — but the lawyer didn’t know that. The actual original is either destroyed (see Katherine Porter’s 2007 study) or “lost.” In this case “lost” doesn’t mean really lost. It means that if they really must come up with something they will call an original they will do so.

    The rest is here:

  38. Another excerpt, from a different article:

    If a loan is assigned to different tranches and/or different trusts, with each tranche or trust having its own series of credit enhancements and insurances, this means the possibility of multiple levels of insurance for the same loan, which goes to prove what we have been arguing for years: that upon securitization, the mortgage loans were insured with multiple layers of insurance so that when the loan went into default, those in the placement chain could reap untold profits by having the same risk paid over and over and over again through multiple claims or reserves. Anyone who read through the SEC v. Goldman Sachs lawsuit knows this.

    As such, any foreclosure defense should now hammer, hard, on ALL available credit enhancements, insurances, tranche assignments, and all agreements relating thereto. We will make a predition here: that very soon, there are going to be a series of cases where it is revealed, in discovery, that mortgage loans were paid 2, 3, 4, or more times on default and that the foreclosing party is simply trying to get paid a 5th or more time by stealing the borrower’s house under false pretenses and with material omissions and improper objections as to discovery related to setoffs (which objections we predict will be overruled once the judiciary is educated as to these matters). Once that happens, we see a literal tsunami of fraud upon the court claims and damage claims against the current foreclosure perpetrators.

    I got one wrong, 87 per cent.

    Fernley Girl-I would like to see this almost in picture. Take a picture of a house-say it’s cost is $200,000.00-then all the paper (mortgages-etc) with a breakdown of all these “enhancements, insurances, tranche assignments, and all agreements relating thereto.” I think it would be so much easier to see all the craziness and creative financing that occurred. Talk about a stacked deck. I’m so glad I read this book years ago, passed it on to lots of friends-essentially it is if put an extra $50-100 on your mortgage payment each month, which has to be applied directly to principle-it cuts a 30 year mortgage to 15, 15 to 7.5. I think they said in the book in a savings account you might get 5 per cent interest, but with this method you make 644 % on your money (I have to take their word on this) beyond my computational skills. It’s about the magic of compound interest-which in this case is working in reverse to benefit the homeowner as opposed to the bank. I compare it to up shifting/downshifting a stick shift car.

    An extraordinary and amazingly simple book that teaches you how to save at least tens of thousands of dollars when you prepay your mortgage, The Banker’s Secret offers about forty pages of simple-to-follow text and loads of helpful charts

  42. Lord have mercy, Obama misquoting Lincoln-since it was Obama speaking I checked the quote.

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2010/10/20/obama_lincoln_would_have_trouble_getting_gop_nomination_today.html

    “Honest Abe said government should do for people what they can not do better for themselves,” President Obama said at a campaign rally in Oregon on Wednesday night.
    Obama said Lincoln would have “trouble getting a nomination in the Republican party right now.”
    You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”
    “You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
    You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence.
    You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”
    — Abraham Lincoln

  46. Rattling & Rambling

    Two weeks to elections. Expect surprises and don’t be surprised with any election tampering or other shenanigans by the Dems. While there is much hope by all riding on this election, we will still have a long way to go for America to recover from OBAMACIDE.

    The new “electives” will have to prove themselves. I hope none of them turn into Scott Brown, the Rino!

    Along with all the other leaks, hints, out right statements–I do believe something is up in the WH. If Pelosi loses the Speaker of the House, no telling how vindictive she may become and what the regime will do to keep her quiet. With all those staff members who jumped Sotoero’s ship, I’m certain some of them will want to “spill the beans for profit.” Then there is the talk of removing Insane/Hussein from office based upon the 10th amendment–something about a melt down. After all he appears to be narcissistic and paranoid schizophrenia. Though the Queen of the Nile, Michele Evita Obama loves her Spanish vacations and eating lobster while she is telling the rest of the world what to eat, there is talk that the king and queen are suffering a stormy relationship. Who knows what the slut Clintons are scheming. They just refuse to fade away. Then there’s the devaluing the dollar, Israel, Ground Zero Mosque, possible more terrorist attacks upon our soil, and any one or more events out of a possible 100,000 possibilities.

    Yes. Me thinks there is much trouble in the WH. All we are getting is the tip of the ice berg. There’s more, more, more, and more to come.

    With the Christian holidays soon upon us, I fear the Muslims & atheists are going to do all in their power to preventing Christmas lights, nativity scenes, and Santa Clause!

    If a lame duck Congress fails to extend Bushes’ tax cuts–that along with Obama-care– will be the added challenge for 2011.

    Oh what a fine mess our trusted leaders created for America!

  47. Free Speech – I saw your post about crisis WH is dealing with. I decided to check the Globe. Could this be part of it? From Globe:

    Obama’s Nightmare

    President Barack Obama is hiding a shocking family secret from America – his mysterious father was murdered in Kenya! That’s the bombshell revealed by the Commander-in-Chief’s sister in a chilling new book – and GLOBE brings you the behind-the-scenes story you can’t afford to miss!
