Blagojevich trial, Retrial hearing, October 22, 2010

The Chicago Tribune reports.

“Prosecutors and defense attorneys are scheduled to appear in federal court as the sides prepare for retrial in the corruption case against ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Friday’s status hearing comes a week after prosecutors filed a response to defense claims that multiple legal errors led to Blagojevich’s conviction for lying to the FBI.

The government countered that it was overwhelming evidence that led to the conviction in the first trial and that allegations of prosecutorial misconduct are baseless.”

  1. I personally think that it is doubtful if Blago will ever tell anything else about Soetoro. He has to know that if he does his body will never be found. In addition his wife and family would also be in grave danger. I believe that he will take whatever penalty the courts dish outand he will be a good little boy,and not cause any more trouble.

  3. Mayor Daley saw fit to retire for a reason. He has figured out what is going to happen to the Democratic party in November. “The PARTY will be over” and his state level machine in Springfield will be out the door. Springfield and Chicago are inexorably tied together in that regard. Either way Daley’s machine will be crippled. I think that this will also include Nashville as well. Only one brick needs to slip from it’s place and Many will slip in November. The November Witch is going to interdict politics as well as Great Lakes weather. Hell may indeed FREEZE OVER.

  4. http://www.prisonplanet.com/white-house-seeks-to-remove-obama.html

    A US analyst says some officials in the White House and the administration are considering legal action to remove Barack Obama from presidency.

    “Right now, there is discussion in Washington and within the government of using the 25th amendment to the US Constitution to remove Obama from office,” Edward Spannaus from Executive Intelligence Review said in an interview with Press TV on Friday.

    The amendment allows for removing the president if he/she has incapacity either physically or mentally.

    “In this case, Obama is mentally incapable of fulfilling the office of president,” Spannaus went on to say.

  5. KNOW YE ALL POLITICAL MARINERS. THE NOVEMBER WITCH IS COMING. SHE DOES HER WORK THOROUGHLY. ALL SHOULD TAKE REFUGE,OR DEPART. SHE WILL BE ARRIVING IN ONE VEHICLE AFTER ANOTHER, AND AFTER MOUNTING, AND ACCELERATING HER BROOM TO MACH 3 HER CACKLE WILL BE HEARD THE WORLD OVER AS SHE DESTROYS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

  6. ATTENTION ALL SENIORS………..SOETORO WANTS ALL OF YOUR MONEY! HE MIGHT EVEN TRY TO NATIONALISE YOUR RETIREMENT VEHICLES; IRAS,K401S, ETC. HE IS ALSO TALKING ABOUT TAXING THE SOCIAL SECURITY EARNINGS AS WELL. HIDE YOUR VALUABLES. IF YOU OWN GOLD YOU NEED TO FIND A GOOD HIDING PLACE. IT IS PROBABLE THAT HE WILL TRY TO CONFISCATE YOUR GOLD,SILVER,AND OTHER VALUABLES. A GOOD WAY TO FIGHT HIM IS TO VOTE AGAINST ALL DEMOCRATS EVERYWHERE. PUT ON SOME SORT OF BREATHING APPARATUS, AND VOTE A STRAIGHT TICKET. ESPECIALLY SENIORS. IT IS PAY BACK TIME.

    juan w. has admitted that he is prejudiced against muslims as are the majority of Americans. The signal that is sent by the FOX contract is that it ok to be a black bigot, but if you are white you can not have legitimate concerns about your safety.

    My problem with juan w. is that he is the worst sort of bigot. For years I have listened to him support bo for no other reason than bo is just like him, a racist.

    The one good thing about the FOX contract with juan w. is that it shows that FOX is not controlled by muslims, but FOX could have found a much better man to champion than juan w. FOX should be supporting men like Col. West, Alan Keyes and Clarence Thomas, not racist bo supporters like juan w.

    The oil is not gone. This story is not over. We smelled it in the air. We felt it in the water. People along the Gulf Coast are getting sick and sicker. Marshes are burned. Oysters are scarce and shrimp are tainted. Jobs are gone and stress is high. What is now hidden will surface over time.

  12. OldSalt79, I think there should be more attention paid to the fact the healthcare bill was “signed into law” by the usurper Barry Soetoro AKA Obama. His signature is worthless.

    The whole mess caused by the fraud of Soetoro needs to be declared, void.

    “Here’s the truth,” Margaret says, now emotional. “Where are the animals? There’s no too-da-loos, the little one-armed fiddler crabs. Ya don’t hear birds. From Amelia to Alabama, Kevin never saw a fish jump, never heard a bird sing. This is their nestin’ season. Those babies, they’re not goin’ nowhere. We had a very small pod of sperm whales in the Gulf, nobody’s seen ‘em. Guys on the water say they died in the spill and their bodies were hacked up and taken away. BP and our government don’t want nobody to see the bodies of dead sea mammals. Dolphins are choking on the surface. Fish are swimming in circles, gasping. It’s ugly, I’m tellin’ you. And nobody’s talkin’ about it. You’re not hearing nothin’ about it. As far as the media is reportin’, everythin’s being cleaned up and it’s not a problem. But you know what, unless I know where my fish is coming from, I’m eatin’ nothin’ from here.”

    “Read it. Read it again,” Margaret says to me. “It’s our story as exiles. If I wasn’t speakin’ out about this, I’d be havin’ a nervous breakdown. I’ll tell you another thing that nobody is talkin’ about. At night, people sittin’ outside on their porches see planes comin’ into the marshes where they live, and these planes are sprayin’ them with the dispersant. That’s the truth. But hey, we’re Cajuns, who cares about us?”

    I agree to all of that. Unfortunately it is going to be quite some time before there will be any action to get rid of Soetoro. Many seniors can’t wait that long. I was recently in the hospital for two days. My co pay was $400.00. I didn’t feel so bad after I saw the total bill. Unfortunately there are seniors who don’t have the money for such copays There are veterans in our addition who are basically living off of what they get in military retirement. Their TRI Care is also slated to increase in cost to them. At the same time they do not get a cola either. It is a real load of crap,and I pray that the congressional dems get a size 12 put upon their backsides in November. Military retirement pay isn’t really so great. Many vets barely make ends meet.

  16. Ms. Helga,
    You are right. Juan Williams is by definition a bigot.

    The followinng was posted yesterday.

    Balder dash!

    Well Fox news made a GREAT BIG DEAL OVER THE FIRING OF JUAN WILLIAMS. O’SLYLY IS HINTING AT GETTING THE PRESIDENT NPR FIRED. JUAN WAS OFFERED OF CONTRACT AT FOX. JUAN IS ANGRILY PLAYING THE VICTIM AND GLOATING OVER ALL THE ATTENTION. Juan is going to come out of this better than he was when he was terminated. Though I disagree on most of his opinions, I truly wish him well.

    LT. COL. LAKIN REMAINS HIDDEN IN THE SHADOWS WITH HIS ENTIRE CAREEER AND LIFE ON THE LINE FIGHTING FOR PROOF THAT THE MAN WHO HAS STOLEN THE HIGHEST SEAT IN THE WORLD IS LEGALLY QUALIFIED TO DO SO. I HAVE NEVER HEARD ANY ONE ON FOX NEWS EVER MENTION LT. COL. LAKIN’S NAME.
    WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

    Fox news disgusts me. O’slyly persists in claiming “fair and balanced” or “looking out for you.” Bullsh*t! It makes the grass grow green but still fails to present one of the most important news story of the century.

    I don’t know if you are aware of it or not,but the SLIME in DC took $550 billion out of the MEDICARE system to give to the dirty slimes who refuse to work,or pay into Social Security. This was allegedly for the purpose of bolstering the Medicaid system. It is BULLSH## because Social Sexcurity money is what you and I worked for and paid into the system. The scum bags ,drugheads, and illegals, are receiving MEDICAID. using the money that we paid in. Then they refuse to give the Seniors a COLA. That is why Bob I am voting a straight ticket very soon,against the LIBERAL slime who perpetrated this.. I hope that every senior who can drive,walk,or crawl to the voting place will do the same. Granted it is not without it’s potential dangers,but I tend to think that at least the rinos may be a little scared to indulge themselves immediately. When they do they too will receive a sizwe 12 on their rear ends.

    Lori tells me she’s bleeding from her vagina and it makes no sense. “I had a hysterectomy years ago.” She then leans forward and whispers in my ear, “I’m bleeding from my anus, too, but I don’t dare tell Mike. This thing is killing me.”

    “So what’s the story that’s not being told?” I ask the room of activists.

    “Which one do you want?” Robin asks. “The misappropriation of funds? The dead animal coverup with local dumps smelling like rotting flesh? The dispersants and public health issues? Or how about the decapitated birds?”

    “You can’t run toxicology tests on birds without their heads,” Lori says.

  23. Conservatives Behind the Curve on Obama

    BY CLIFF KINCAID  |  OCTOBER 20, 2010

    Conservatives have awakened, but only partly.

    http://www.aim.org/aim-column/conservatives-behind-the-curve-on-obama/

    (excerpt)
    The difference between calling Obama an anti-colonialist, a socialist, or a Marxist mentored by a top operative of the CPUSA is that one category should immediately earn you an FBI investigation. Former FBI agent Max Noel says the Bureau used to investigate candidates for federal employment by analyzing Character, Associates, Reputation, and Loyalty to the United States. The first letters in those words make up the acronym CARL.
    Obama could not have been elected president if he had been subjected to such an inquiry.

    Leaving Davis aside—and he was on the FBI’s “security index”—Obama’s relationship with communist terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn was enough to disqualify him for the presidency. These despicable people, who claim that they never killed anyone and never intended to, are notorious liars.
    (snip)
    This is a time when we have to be absolutely precise about the nature of the “socialists” or “progressives” we are dealing with. The difference between being supported by the CPUSA and just being against colonialism or supporting socialism is that the CPUSA was a pawn of Moscow that committed espionage against the United States. This is the party that supported the Hitler-Stalin Pact. Davis denounced Richard Wright for “treason” for leaving and exposing the party.

    This is why Obama covered up Frank’s identity. He knew that acknowledging the truth could destroy his political career. And it could still do so if the truth is examined.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Personally I feel very passionate about this matter. Even the conservative press did not want to think (and many still don’t) that Obama is a Marxist, through and through. Definitely the talking heads, including politicians, want to suppress that fact, and that is one of the reasons we are where we are today. The above article is worth reading!

    http://www.helium.com/items/1981088-real-economic-numbers-prove-us-in-great-depression

    The real unemployment numbers

    As explained by Williams the “Unemployment Rate reflects current unemployment reporting methodology adjusted for long-term discouraged workers, who were defined out of official existence in 1994. That estimate is added to the BLS estimate of U-6 unemployment, which includes short-term discouraged workers.”

    The result is an unemployment picture that equals the worst of the Great Depression. Using the 1994 standard that was gradually tinkered with to make everything look rosier than it really is (if 10 percent unemployment can be considered rosy), the real seasonally adjusted unemployment rate today hovers at 23 percent. Of course depending on the region, the demographics and the industry, some unemployment is actually pushing over 40 percent.

    I am coming to the conclusion that “Polyticks”(many little bloodsuckers) and Sports are all in the same category.
    It is all about Ratings. I am beginning to believe that Fox doesn’t really want the Repubs to win because the conflict would be diminished, thereby lowering the desire to watch their shows. As I said before we are being played like a fiddle.

    PS – Has anyone noticed the amount of “Cleavage” that is being displayed by all the female talking heads? They are like Cheerleaders and it causes the ratings to go up!!!

    You know, ms. helga, I tend to agree with you. We all know the bottom line of any business endeavor is profits, which is not bad, BUT what one does to get them is another question.

    What really ticks me off is that before anyone even had a chance to fully “digest” the Juan matter, Roger Ailes signed up Juan for a handsome three-year contract with Fox at $2 million.

    Juan is NOT one of us; he IS a bigot and Fox carries him so they can refute criticism that they are not “fair and balanced”. Sometimes those words just sicken me. How about just reporting the TRUTH and let the “fair and balanced” stuff take its normal place? Disgusting!

    Wow! The unions are mostly among the top donors and nearly all goes to the Dems. I took note of News Corp. (parent company of Fox?) which gave more to Dems than to Repubs. (58% -Dems; 41% Repubs) In all fairness, I am not sure at what time Fox became under News Corp. Now we see why, if we didn’t before, that Obama is so beholden to the unions. He sees them as a cash cow and also a tool to use against the free enterprise system.

    We need to keep this fresh in everyone’s mind till Nov. The thieves think we will forget about it by Nov. Let’s prove them wrong.

    THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION IS FUNDING TWENTY FOUR MILLION DOLLARS–LET ME REPEAT THAT AMOUNT…!!!* SO YOU UNDERSTAND IT $ 24,000,000.00 DOLLARS FOR NEW ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS PROCESSING FOR OUR CONGRESSMEN** AND SENATORS !!**

    THEY ARE OBTAINING THESE FUNDS by STEALING FROM THE SOCIAL SECURITY FUNDS*

    *And*

    I QUOTE DIRECTLY FROM THE SOCIAL SECURITY WEBSITE…
    “THIS MONEY WILL BE COMING FROM THE SAVINGS TO BE GENERATED FROM WITHHOLDING “COST OF LIVING INCREASES FOR 2010 & 2011 In SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS FOR THE ELDERLY AND A $2.00 INCREASE ON ALL MEDICARE RX BENEFIT CO-PAY”

    Please pass this to ALL your friends and have them

    “PROTEST TO THE IDIOTS WE ELECTED TO CONGRESS”

    Who by the way, have just voted themselves ANOTHER 3% SALARY INCREASE!!!

    We must put a stop to this outright thievery!

    It is THE CONGRESS AND THE SENATE, BOTH REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATS, WE CAN’T FIRE THEM, BUT WE SURE CAN NOT RE-ELECT THEM, And WE CAN IMPEACH THEM* Or DEMAND RECALL ELECTIONS !!!

    HOW ABOUT WE ALL GET TOGETHER AND DUMP THESE CLOWNS.
    All I ask is that you consider the suggestion here. The entire Congress of the United States is corrupt.And I mean both Houses and I mean both major parties. I realize that a few Members of each House are trustworthy,*

    But, As a group they are absolutely the most corrupt bunch To ever disgrace our Nation.

    In November of 2010 The entire House of Representatives will stand for re-election; All 435 of them.

    One third of the Senate, A total of 33 of them, will also stand for re-election.

    Vote every incumbent out. And I mean every one of them.
    No matter their Party affiliation.

    Let’s start all over in the House of Representatives with 435 people
    Who have absolutely no experience in running that body,
    With no political favors owed to anyone but their own constituents.

    Let’s make them understand that they work for us… They are answerable to us.
    And they simply have to run that body with some common sense.

    Two years later, in 2012, Vote the next third of the incumbents in the Senate out. We can do the same thing in 2014 and, By that time we will have put all new people in that body as well.

    We, the People, Have got to take this Country back and we have to do it peacefully. That’s what the Framers of our Constitution envisioned.

    I am also suggesting term limits on the NEW BUNCH 8 YEARS FOR REPRESENTATIVES AND 12 YEARS OF SENATORS. NO EXCEPTIONS.

    THE LONGER THEY STAY IN OFFICE THE MORE POWER THEY GET AND THEY LOVE IT AND WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET RE-ELECTED. WE HAVE TERM LIMITED THE PRESIDENT
    NOW LET’S TERM LIMIT THE LEGISLATORS

    Please, If you love this Country, Send this (as I have done) to absolutely everyone Whose email address appears in your address book..This thing can permeate this Country in no time.

    Let’s make it happen.

    VOTE THE POWER ABUSERS OUT…LET’S TAKE AMERICA BACK !!!

    IF YOU LIKE THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING IN OUR COUNTRY, THEN DO NOTHING..

  43. PEE OR NOT TO PEE.

    I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes & the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit.

    In order to get that paycheck, in my case, I am required to pass a random urine test (with which I have no problem).

    What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don’t have to pass a urine test.

    So, here is my question: Shouldn’t one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them?

    Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their BUTT—-doing drugs while I work.

    Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?

    I guess we could call the program “URINE OR YOU’RE OUT”!

    Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don’t. Hope you all will pass it along, though. Something has to change in this country – AND SOON!

    P.S. Just a thought, all politicians should have to pass a urine test too!

    THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

    When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident:

    That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world. (Con’t.)

    Man saved by God, and by dog who says grace
    The video was meant to simply make some Facebook friends, and his mother in particular, smile.
    Steven Boyd, 39, had taught his dog Djaingo how to “say grace,” and one late September morning, camera in hand, he coaxed the sleepy pup out to the living room and into prayer.

    Washington Post Blockbuster Confirms Worst Fears About Holder Justice Dept. Race Policies
    Posted by Andrew Breitbart Oct 22nd 2010 at 12:40 pm in Featured Story, Justice/Legal, Politics, Race, Washington Post | Comments (18) Congratulations to the editors at the Washington Post. Seventeen months after the Eric Holder Justice Department dismissed a slam-dunk case against the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation, the Post gets around to printing a thorough vetting of the dismissal. The story is slated for Saturday’s print edition. While other media like Breitbart/The Bigs, Fox News, the Washington Times, the Weekly Standard, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, Investors Business Daily, Pajamas Media, and Drudge have had dozens of stories on the corrupt New Black Panther dismissal, the Washington Post at last is in the game do the Post does what nobody has been able to do – obtain deep sourcing inside the Department confirming what Adams and Coates have been saying for months. This is a devastating piece of work by the Washington Post. This is a rare moment where the old print media has returned to the higher standards of years past, and reported facts. A week from an election, it couldn’t have come at a worse time for Eric Holder.
    But overall, the story is very bad news for Eric Holder. It debunks many of the myths spun by the administration. Inside DOJ sources describe deep hostility to protecting whites at Justice. DOJ sources say panther prosecutor Christian Adams never allowed his conservative views to influence his work, contradicting administration spin. And perhaps most damning of all to Holder, sources defending the administration defend the idea that whites aren’t protected by the Civil Rights laws. The latter is the blockbuster news in the Post piece.

    There is this money quote:

    “There are career people who feel strongly that it is not the voting section’s job to protect white voters,” the lawyer said. “The environment is that you better toe the line of traditional civil rights ideas or you better keep quiet about it, because you will not advance, you will not receive awards and you will be ostracized.”

    This is a rare moment where the old print media has returned to the higher standards of years past, and reported facts. A week from an election, it couldn’t have come at a worse time for Eric Holder.

    You might not be aware that Mayor Dayley’s wife has cancer and it has returned. It could be that he retired for other personal reasons.

  51. Aussie…………………………………….
    You could be correct. Yet it is awfully hard to imagine Daley hanging it up. His father RULED Chicago for a very long time.

  52. Aussie…………………………………
    It is equally as hard to imagine Rahm Emanuel as the MAYOR of Chicago.

    The men at Hillbuzz covered the announcement from Dayley when it happened. They are aware that his wife had cancer and was in remission. However, apparently the cancer has returned. It is possible that he wants to spend time with her before she dies.

    BTW I agree with you about Rahm. If the machine wants him as mayor then they will push him. However, many Chicagoans are not interested in having Rahm as mayor.

    At the same time Rahm probably has to answer some questions regarding Blago’s activities. It might prove interesting if he has to take the stand… :)
