Blagojevich Second Trial, Spy Wednesday, April 20, 2011, Holy Week Catholic faith

Blagojevich Second Trial, Spy Wednesday, April 20, 2011, Holy Week Catholic faith

“Why did the Illinois Senate Health & Human Services Committee, with Obama as chairman, create and push Bill 1332, “Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act,” early in 2003, which reduced the number of members on the Board from 15 to 9, just prior to rigging by Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

“Why did Patrick Fitzgerald and the US Justice Department prosecute Tony Rezko first and wait until after the 2008 election to arrest Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

 

“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich

From HuffPost Chicago March 28, 2011.

“Why is the second trial of former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich commencing on “Spy Wednesday”? This is not tongue-in-cheek. It’s true. “Spy Wednesday” this year falls on April 20th, the start date for the federal government’s second chance to throw the book at Blagojevich.

How did this happen? Was this date an accidental pick? Or on purpose? Who chose the date? Who knows? Maybe it was just the luck of the draw.

During Holy Week in the Catholic faith, “Spy Wednesday” is traditionally the day before Holy Thursday or Maundy Thursday, the day of commemoration of the Last Supper and when Jesus washed the Apostles’ feet.

In contrast with the Last Supper, “Spy Wednesday” is not exactly a holy day. It is a day that is notorious. It’s the day when Apostle Judas Iscariot offered to turn Jesus over to the Chief Priests of the Sanhedrin in exchange for thirty pieces of silver. It is a day of betrayal, of loyalty lost, of selling out.

But then again, maybe it is the perfect day to start this do-over. For those who view Blagojevich as an elected official who betrayed the public’s trust. A sellout. Versus those who see him as just another Chicago pol engaged in mere horse trading, spied upon by an overzealous federal prosecutor through the surreptitious taping of his phone conversations, the entirety of which have yet to be made public. You’ll recall Blago’s defense has been that the snippets released so far have been taken out of context, and if Judge James Zagel were to allow the entire conversations to be released, the tapes would exonerate him, not convict him.

Whatever happens, the public won’t get to see it. Again. Except for a lucky three dozen or so each day if the courtroom is the same small, crowded one used this summer. Over half the seats go to reporters. What’s left, the public gets to scramble for.

Yet with 40-some reporters there, don’t think you can see this trial at home or at the office on your laptop, television, cable or satellite. With the plethora of channels out there and the ever expanding means of communication, you would think someone could see this somewhere. Yet video isn’t allowed. No, sir. Not in federal courtrooms, thank you. Not even in the overflow courtroom which gets an audio feed but no faces to scrutinize, no expressions to read.”

“A real trial with real witnesses like Tony Rezko or Stuart Levine with real questions would be refreshing­. Too bad they dropped counts 1, 2 & 4 which tie Obama to the corruption­.”

  1. CW – Sorry OT but on lucianne here is an article which is saying what you have been saying all along. Plus Drudge has top center column a picture of Trump with story of his releasing his birth certificate.

    “Trump On Birth Certificate:
    Obama Spent Millions ‘To
    Get Away From This Issue’”

    http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=605670

    READ THE COMMENTS – I think we have hit the Mother Load. Keep your eyes on the MSM now. I detect the beginning of a melt-down.

  2. Catch this quote –

    “THE TRUTH TRUMPS SPADE”

  3. Ms. Helga, you Are right. We are at the crossroads on this issue. The MSM can no longer sit on this story.

  4. “… Donald Trump’s Birth Certificate”

    “Donald Trump, who has been making television appearances calling for President Barack Obama to release his official birth documents, released his birth certificate exclusively to Newsmax on Monday.”

  5. Ms.helga,
    Thanks for the heads-up on the Politico article on Drudge – I posted it at lucianne.

  6. Bill Cutting | March 28, 2011 at 3:02 pm | LOL!

    Odd that none of the demRats bit on it.
    ———————————————————————————————
    Oh the Cowboy already has post up on his blog whining about Trump’s Certificate.
    It’s all good, LOL

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

    LOL!

    Who is the obot cowboy? Is that where ladyhawke, fos, and paxson went while they were boycotting CW?

    It is so amusing to watch the petty little obot LYING nobodies breaking their own boycott only to post to themselves because no true conservatives will reply to their comments.

    Best to continue to IGNORE the obots. The obots only intention is to disrupt from intelligent discussion.

  7. March 27 — Joseph Farah appearing on the Bill Cunningham Show to discuss concerns about Obama’s eligibility for office.

  8. Does anybody else besides me think that FS needs a period of self reflection? Perhaps he’ll come to the conclusion that the rest of us have and re-enter with a level of humility. It is very discomforting to watch somebody whose self image doesn’t match up to reality in delusions of grandeur.

    “It is time for no one to post here again…”

    Aussie | March 24, 2011 at 2:40 am |

    “Ladyhawke, I agree and will be back some time in the future when the virus on this blog is removed. “

    Paxson | March 23, 2011 at 10:39 pm |

    “I’m outta here.”

    Aussie | March 24, 2011 at 3:20 am |

    “FOS

    I am following Paxson, and will cease from posting until such time as the present virus that is infecting the blog is removed. You know where to find me.”

    Aussie | March 24, 2011 at 2:40 am |

    Ladyhawke, I agree and will be back some time in the future when the virus on this blog is removed.
    ***************************
    I agree with you both and will do the same.

    Ditto here.”

    “CW’s site has been a great vehicle for some time. But we have many other options now.”

    FOS Alert | March 24, 2011 at 11:51 am |

    “outta here also”

  10. GORDO | March 28, 2011 at 3:42 pm |

    Thanks, Gordo

  11. Again, it is extremely discomforting to watch somebody slip into the deep abyss of insanity.

  12. Free Speech | March 28, 2011 at 3:37 pm |

    Can you please stop whining about obots here and obots there? All your finger pointing is what is disrupting from intelligent discussion. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and figure you’re smart enough to know that. So what is it exactly you’re trying to accomplish here?

    indymac | March 28, 2011 at 3:51 pm |

    We think he makes a good point.

  14. Bill Cutting

    indymac that is…

  15. Obama claimed he didn’t know that Daniel T. Frawley was Tony Rezko’s partner in the Companion Security deal…Companion Security “won” the $50 million dollar contract to bring 150 unvetted Iraqi’s here to Illinois to train to use AK-47’a…There is NO WAY Dan Frawley could have gotten an appointment to see then Senator Obama without Rezko vouching for him…His credentials were lacking to say the least; he was kicked off the CPD after 7 months for being a racist, he had no college, no military, no office, no fax, no phone, not even a house he was living with his younger sister??? Really, Obama didn’t know Frawley was Rezko’s partner??? Rezko forgot to mention it after giving Obama hundereds of thousands of dollars??? He forgot…
