Donald Trump on Geraldo Rivera, Obama birth certificate, There Is a Chance that He Wasn’t Born in this Country

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

Donald Trump was interviewed by Geraldo Rivera.

Geraldo: “There is something very Strange going on. He spent a lot of money to keep this out of print. There’s something very very strange going on. A lot of legal fees. Why can’t he produce a birth certificate?”

Theresa Cao update, March 24, 2011, Except Obama except Obama patriot, Attorney April Downs

Theresa Cao update, March 24, 2011, Except Obama except Obama patriot, Attorney April Downs

From the Post & Email March 23, 2011.

“Defendant Theresa Cao, who shouted “Except Obama!  Except Obama!” during the reading of the U.S. Constitution on January 6, met with her public defender on Tuesday, March 22, 2011, after initially having dismissed her on March 14, 2011, prior to her March 15 hearing.

Cao officially announced that she was firing Attorney April Downs in a Motion to Dismiss addressed to the government in which she referenced several articles published at The Post & Email and charged Barack Hussein Obama with treason.

Theresa gave her account of her meeting with Downs exclusively to The Post & Email.

SHARON: When did you meet with Ms. Downs?

THERESA: It was March 22 at noon, for about an hour; perhaps a little more.

SHARON: Did she have any reaction to your Motion to Dismiss which you introduced the day before your hearing?

THERESA: Yes.  After the last hearing, she asked to see the motion, so she saw what I wrote about her.

SHARON: And what was her reaction to that?

THERESA: Well, I tried not to talk about it; I just let her read and I tried to divert her, which sometimes left us at an impasse.

I believe that in my Motion to Dismiss, I was showing the judicial system that I have caught them in their corruption.  I put it all on paper that I could clearly read them and they are not who they say they are.  I have it all on paper.

SHARON: What do you think she thought of the information you included?

THERESA: This was another test for her, actually.  Remember she said that she was now going to defend me based on my constitutional rights?

SHARON: Yes, I remember.

THERESA: Well, clearly, in this particular meeting, again, she opposed me on basically everything that I wanted to have done based on my defense on the Constitution.”

Patrick Fitzgerald Obama puppet, Fitzgerald bias, Fitzgerald nomination for FBI Director?

Patrick Fitzgerald Obama puppet, Fitzgerald bias, Fitzgerald nomination for FBI Director?

“Why did Patrick Fitzgerald delay the prosecution of Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

“Why did Obama name Patrick Fitzgerald as chairman of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee of U.S. Attorneys (AGAC)?”…Citizen Wells

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

From the Chicago Tribune March 21, 2011.

“Republican Sen. Mark Kirk has three words for U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald: Stay in Chicago.

Fitzgerald’s name has surfaced among potential nominees to replace outgoing FBI Director Robert Mueller, whose nonrenewable term ends in September.”
“But Fitzgerald is a potential nominee who could have trouble with congressional confirmation. Some Republicans think he overreached in his prosecution of I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, in the Valerie Plame affair.”

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-ap-il-kirk-fitzgerald,0,2395095.story

It is clear at this juncture that Fitzgerald is driven by political motives and other bias in the US Justice Department. His overzealous prosecution of Libby and Karl Rove and lackadaisical prosecution of Rod Blagojevich bear this out. It is clear that Fitzgerald, in lock step with the Justice Dept., has protected Obama.

Obama eligibility poll, Wenzel poll reveals 9 percent believe Obama documentation, World Net Daily poll

Obama eligibility poll, Wenzel poll reveals 9 percent believe Obama documentation, World Net Daily poll

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

From World Net Daily March 20, 2011.

“Not even one person in 10 believes Barack Obama has shown that he is eligible to be president of the United States, according to a stunning new scientific poll that also reveals political independents have less tolerance than even Republicans for his efforts to obfuscate the issue.

“The shocking result in this survey is that just 9 percent said they believe Obama has met the requirements to prove he was born in the United States and is therefore qualified to be president,” said Fritz Wenzel, president of Wenzel Strategies, which conducted the survey.

“Even when you combine those who say such questions are not valid with those who believe he has satisfied the requirements, it still falls short of equaling the percentage who said he should step forward and prove his birth origin once and for all,” he said.

Wenzel Strategies, an independent public opinion research firm based in Ohio, conducted a nationwide telephone poll using a randomly selected sample of adults. The survey, including 1,095 respondents, was conducted March 15-17 and carries a confidence interval of 95 percent and a margin of error of +/- 2.93 percentage points.
“The question of whether Barack Obama is eligible to hold the office of president is remarkable in that so many people are aware of the questions that remain unanswered. The survey shows that 77 percent are aware of the issue, and another 12 percent said they are unsure, which likely means they know a little but not enough to articulate details,” Wenzel said in his analysis of the results.

“Given the level of interest that the American public now devotes to politics, especially in an off-election year, this finding is remarkable. It speaks volumes about Obama’s unwillingness or inability to satisfy this question once and for all,” he said.

It was back in June 2009 when a Wenzel poll showed 51.3 percent were “aware of questions raised about Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility for the office of president.”

This month, 77 percent of the Democrats who responded said they are aware of the controversy. Nearly 82 percent of the Republicans are aware and almost 69 percent of the independents. Overall, 76.8 percent said yes, and another 11.7 percent said they were unsure. Only 11.5 percent said there were not aware of the questions.

“Half of those surveyed said they believe these questions about Obama’s legitimacy as president are either troubling or should be satisfied by Obama. In fact, more people want Obama to prove his legitimacy – 42 percent – than believe that the lingering questions are not valid – 32 percent,” Wenzel said.

The survey showed 41.9 percent say Obama should prove his birth story, including 60.9 percent of independents, 58.6 percent of Republicans and 13.2 percent of Democrats.”

Meroni V 32 Candidates and the Illinois State Board of Elections, Sharon Meroni appeal, Proof of eligibility for office

Meroni V 32 Candidates and the Illinois State Board of Elections, Sharon Meroni appeal, Proof of eligibility for office

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

From Chalice of Patriot’s Heart Radio March 20, 2011.

“The brief for Meroni V 32 Candidates and the Illinois State Board of Elections  was entered for the appellant on March 8th, 2011.  The Attorney General in Illinois has 35 days to respond, and the appellant, Sharon Meroni, represented by attorney, Stephen Boulton from McCarthy Duffy, will have 14 days to respond.  Oral arguments will be requested and likely granted.
 
I ask you to take the time to read this brief.  Mr. Boulton and I are discussing secondary legal steps we would like to take to pave the way for successful litigation of the constitutional issues involved in this case.  The 4th Appellate Court is tasked to determine if it will address the procedural errors of the previous rulings and/or the constitutional issues involved.
 
It is our contention that the Illinois State Board of Elections, procedurally, could have addressed our objections through their subpoena power.  In addition, our court action contends current Illinois Code violates US and Illinois Constitutional rights. These are separate and interrelated legal issues.
 
Keep in mind, this appeal does not discuss Natural Born Citizen directly in the argument.  The core argument is that no one in Illinois must prove they are legally qualified (constitutionally eligible as US citizens) to run for any office in the state. It is our contention that the nomination papers should provide the proof to substantiate the candidate’s affirmation that they are legally qualified to hold that office.  This is true for all offices. Ultimately, definations for legally qualified will be specific to the office sought.”

Patrick Fitzgerald FBI Director?, More Obama control of Justice Dept, John Kass Naive?

Patrick Fitzgerald FBI Director?, More Obama control of Justice Dept, John Kass Naive?

“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

From John Kass and the Chicago Tribune March 17, 2011.

“And both he and Patti know the names of all the prosecutors and FBI agents, including U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald.
“My point is, it’s a selective prosecution,” Patti told the audience.”

“And now Fitzgerald might be making a move, to Washington. He’s on the short list to replace Robert Muller as director of the FBI.
Whether he gets the job or not is something else again. I think Fitzgerald would like the post. Friends of his have been talking about it for years. He’s obviously qualified, and he has hunted crooked Democrats and crooked Republicans with equal gusto.
But would the Chicago Way White House — with mayoral brother Billy Daley as chief of staff to the president — want an uncontrollable Fitzgerald running the FBI for the next 10 years?
Who knows? Billy Daley is approving the short list being leaked out to the media, with Fitz’s name on it.”

“”It would be Chicago’s loss if Patrick Fitzgerald became director of the FBI,” the former senator said. “All sorts of characters in Chicago would be delighted if Patrick were promoted out of town. As FBI director, his responsibilities would be focused on a broad spectrum and he wouldn’t have time to focus just on Chicago.””

John Kass has been one of the more outspoken critics of Blagojevich and Obama. However, he has not been paying close enough attention or has been held back by the Tribune. As you will see in my upcoming first argument against Patrick Fitzgerald and the Justice Dept., Fitzgerald was indeed aggressive in prosecuting Republicans, but slow as molasses in going after Blagojevich while all the time protecting Obama. Will Fitzgerald become director of the FBI and thus add another layer of control in the Justice Dept. for Obama?

Opening Statement

 

In a simpler, more sincere world, in a world of justice and fairness envisioned by our founding fathers, I would just ask that the evidentiary proffer be read, a few questions be asked and a grand jury convened to indict Patrick Fitzgerald and Barack Obama. The indictment of Fitzgerald would naturally lead to further indictments in the US Justice Department. This is not the world we live in today. Sadly, we live in an Orwellian world with no regard for the US Constitution and rule of law. A world where the end justifies the means.

We now know for a fact that there has been corruption and bias in the US Justice Department for years. Whistleblowers such as J. Christian Adams, a former Justice Department employee, and long time Democrat, civil rights attorney, Bartle Bull, have corroborated our suspicions. Judges, including Supreme Court Justices, a crucial part of our checks and balances within the Judicial Branch as well as the larger checks and balances of the executive and legislative branches, have acted in a manner that if not conspiratorial, certainly biased or apathetic. And now, one of the chief players in this chicanery, Barack Obama, is in control of Eric Holder, the Attorney General. 

A cursory reading of this evidentiary proffer reveals a completed puzzle picture, a large billboard that reads:

  • Barack Obama was enmeshed in the Chicago corruption of Rod Blagojevich and Tony Rezko and was a participant in the rigging of the IL Health Planning Facilities Board. This well planned board rigging, which took place over many months, was a large part of the indictment and trial of Tony Rezko and the early legal charges against Rod Blagojevich.
  • The facts and reference to this rigging have diminished over time in the Justice Department legal documents and prosecution pleadings.
  • The prosecution of Rod Blagojevich has been repeatedly delayed.
  • Why was Tony Rezko, a businessman, prosecuted first instead of Blagojevich, the governor?
  • Why was the first Blagojevich trial so short?
  • Why were neither Tony Rezko or Stuart Levine called as witnesses?
  • Why was Rod Blagojevich arrested after the 2008 election?

The questions go on and on, but the answer is simple.
To protect Barack Obama.

This is the first article in a series about corruption in the US Justice Department and specifically an operation I refer to as “Protecting Obama.” Many events smelled back in 2008, but with the passage of time, the stench is corroborated. Below is the Evidentiary Proffer, a summary and timeline of the bulk of evidence that reveals how Obama was protected in the investigation and prosecution of Tony Rezko, Rod Blagojevich, et al. The time is right to present my case. There are enough well documented events to make a strong case. As I have mentioned recently, I have contacted a prominent congressman about this issue and others and this is a way to get the facts in front of the congressman, his staff and the public. The Proffer will certainly be updated from time to time. I will next present an opening statement and then go on to present the case in more detail. However, anyone who has been paying careful attention or who reads this Proffer, will come to the obvious conclusion presented here  of collusion involving the US Justice Department, Patrick Fitzgerald, Barack Obama, and probably Rod Blagojevich and Tony Rezko.

Before reading the Proffer, here is a recap of how important Rezko is to the prosecution of Blagojevich and ultimately indicting Obama.
It is understandable why the Blagojevich defense team does not want Rezko on the stand. Judge Zagel’s comment about Rezko being a bad witness reeks of conspiracy. Convicted felons of all categories are regularly used as witnesses. Stuart Levine, the key witness in the Rezko trial was not only enmeshed in corruption but was a long time drug user.

Here are the approximate number of times that “Rezko” is mentioned in US Justice Department documents.

Indictment:  87 times.
Criminal complaint:  170 times.
Evidentiary Proffer:  288 times.

Even if a strong argument is made against using Rezko as a witness, and good luck with that argument, Stuart Levine was used extensively as a witness in the Rezko trial, and his name was mentioned approx. 146 times in the Blagojevich Criminal Complaint. And remember, Blagojevich’s name was mentioned at least 30 times on one day of the Rezko trial.

Evidentiary Proffer supporting charge of Collusion in protecting Obama during the course of investigating and prosecuting Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich.

Jan. – Aug. 2003:  Obama was Chairman of the IL Senate Health and Human Service Committee.
Feb. 20, 2003: Senate Bill 1332 “Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act” filed. Reduced members of IL Health Planning and Facilities Board from 15 to 9.

(Rezko Trial March 13, 2008; 3:09 p.m.)

“Almanaseer was appointed to the planning board in 2003 on Rezko’s recommendation. Prosecutors contend he became part of a five-member voting bloc on the board that followed Rezko’s wishes. Almanaseer said board Chairman Thomas Beck tried to steer his voting.

“He said, ‘If you just don’t know which way to vote, vote the way Mr. Levine votes because that’s the way Tony would want the vote to go,” Almanaseer recalled, referring to Stuart Levine.”

Spring 2003 – Nov 2003: (Rezko trial March 11, 2008; 10:58 a.m.)

“Jennifer Thomas, a former aide to Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s patronage chief Joe Cini, continued on the stand Tuesday morning and gave a few more insights into those regular Monday morning meetings she and Cini held in 2003 with Antoin “Tony” Rezko at his office.”

“Thomas said Rezko floated the names of several people to sit on the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board, which the government claims Rezko corrupted with the help of board member Stuart Levine. And Thomas said Rezko at one point made it clear that he wanted to see Levine reappointed to the panel, which was being overhauled by the governor in 2003.”
May 21, 2003: Senate Bill 1332 passed by House and Senate.
June 27, 2003: Blagojevich made this the effective date of Senate Bill 1332.
June 2003: (Rezko trial March 10, 2008; 4:16 p.m.)

“Ziegelmueller asked Hayden about a 2003 e-mail exchange with Lichtenstein, then the governor’s top lawyer, in which Wilhelm made recommendations for the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board.
The name of Barack Obama, the Democratic front-runner for the presidential nomination, also appears in the e-mail as a member of a strategic team reviewing hospital board matters with the governor’s staff when he was a state senator. The hospital board was scheduled to be revamped in the summer of 2003.
Obama was then chairman of the Senate Committee on Health & Human Services.”
June 30, 2003: Obama gets the following donations.

$5000 Ali Ata was appointed as Director at IFA
$6000 Alison Davis gets appointment on Investment Board
$15,000 Dr. Michael Malek gets appointment on Hospital Facility Board
$5000  Abdelhamid Chaib’s wife gets appointment on Employee Security Board
$10,000 Elie Maloof – Rezko used him as one of several strawmen to donate funds to certain politicians.
$1000  Phil Cacciatore (one of Auchi’s Riverside Park Investors) gets seat on Board
$1000  Velma Butler (one of Auchi’s Riverside Park Investors) was recommended for Board
$1000  Martello Pollack (Vegas Crystal Comm) received Iraqi Construction contracts
$1000 Jack Carriglio gets appointed to Board
$500  Anthony Abboud gets appointed to Board
$3000 Michael Winter, who helped Rezko in funneling kickbacks through investment firm
$1000 Talat Othman gets appointed to Board
$1000 David Gustman, $1000 from Gustman’s wife after he is appointed Board Chairman
Late 2003: Earliest documented awareness by FBI and Patrick Fitzgerald of corruption in Blagojevich admin. Pamela Meyer Davis agreed to secretly record conversations involving state health planning board with an FBI wire.
Oct. 29, 2003: Blagojevich interest in presidency (Blagojevich criminal complaint pg 14).

“During the conversation, Cari and ROD BLAGOJEVICH discussed Cari’s fundraising background and work as a national fundraiser. ROD BLAGOJEVICH discussed his interest in running for President of the United States.”
Dec 17, 2003: Former Governor George Ryan indicted.

http://www.justice.gov/usao/iln/indict/2003/warner_ryan.pdf
Dec 31, 2003: (NY Times)

“Mr. Fitzgerald announced that he was prosecuting former Gov. George Ryan, a Republican, in a scandal that had been swirling around long before Mr. Fitzgerald got here and that many people thought would never touch the most powerful politicians in Illinois. But there Mr. Fitzgerald was, a week before Christmas, ticking off the details of a 91-page indictment against Mr. Ryan, seemingly from memory.

That, even Mr. Fitzgerald’s former opponents in the courtroom say, is classic Fitzgerald: dogged, dispassionate and endlessly prepared.”
2004 – 2005: (February 10, 2008 Sun-Times)

“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,“

During his March 14, 2008 interview, the Times told Obama, Thomas is an FBI mole and he “recently told us that he saw you coming and going from Rezko’s office a lot.”

“And three other sources told us that you and Rezko spoke on the phone daily.””
March – May 2004: (Rezko trial exhibits)

FBI chart presented to the jury on April 28, 2008, shows 257 calls from Rezko’s phones to Blagojevich’s chief of staff, Lon Monk, between March 2004 and May 2004 alone.

http://www.justice.gov/usao/iln/hot/us_v_rezko_exhibits/2008_04_28/phone_chart_07.pdf

April 3, 2004: (April 14, 2008; 12:57 p.m. Rezko trial transcripts)

“Stuart Levine, the prosecution’s star witness, said he and Obama were at a party Rezko threw at his Wilmette mansion on April 3, 2004, for Nadhmi Auchi, a controversial Iraqi-born billionaire who Rezko was trying to get to invest in a South Loop real-estate development.

Auchi, now a citizen of the United Kingdom, has faced criminal charges in Europe. He also figured in the revocation of Rezko’s bond early this year after attempting to wire him more than $3 million. Upon learning of that attempt, U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve declared Rezko a flight risk and ordered him held in a federal jail in the Loop.

The Rezko party in 2004 was designed to induce Auchi to pour money into the South Loop investment. Obama’s presence at the party was not previously known. At the time, Obama was fresh off a surprise win in the Illinois Democratic primary for U.S. Senate and was riding a crest of national publicity.”
April 8 – May 21, 2004: (Rezko Trial March 12, 2008; 11:11 a.m.)

“FBI Special Agent Daniel Cain, the primary case agent on the investigation into Levine and Rezko, is on the stand now in testimony that is laying the foundation for entering the wiretaps into evidence.

Cain said the investigation, dubbed Operation Board Games by the federal agents, began in December 2003 and was prompted by information gleaned from an informant whom he did not identify. That witness, he said, took part in meetings with two other individuals who were in contact with Levine by phone at his home.

Cain said Levine had three phone lines in his North Shore home. Federal agents recorded conversations on those lines April 8-May 21, 2004. Those dates span the time when Levine, Rezko and others allegedly were working to rig the hospital board vote on a Mercy Health System hospital proposal for Crystal Lake and other kickback schemes prosecutors claim they were engaged in.”
April 21, 2004: (Rezko Trial March 11, 2008; 5:27 p.m.)

“The former lawyer for a state board that regulates hospital expansions took the stand late in the afternoon and said she told Stuart Levine of her concern after an odd vote on the Mercy Hospital project that included Levine whispering to other board members before the project was approved.

His response was no less troubling, she said.

“He shrugged his shoulders and said, ‘Sometimes you have to be a good soldier,'” said Anne Murphy, the former lawyer for the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board.

Murphy said Levine’s remark followed a vote that saw the plan for a new hospital in Crystal Lake squeak by with the minimum of five votes in favor on the nine-member board.

With eight members present at the April 2004 meeting, Murphy said the vote was stalled with three members voting “yes,” two voting “no” and two abstentions when Chairman Thomas Beck was called to give his vote.

Beck said, “Where’re we at?” Murphy testified. He then went over to whisper with Levine off the record, she said. When that conversation ended, Murphy said, Levine got up and whispered to Imad Almanaseer.

Beck then voted yes, Murphy testified, and Almanaseer changed his vote to “yes,” giving the plan the necessary votes to pass.

“There was an audible, collective gasp across the room,” Murphy recalled of the April 2004 meeting.

Prosecutors contend the five members who voted for the hospital were a Levine-led bloc that Rezko had placed on the board and controlled. The two were charged with arranging to accept a kickback from the builder who was going to build the Mercy project in Crystal Lake.

The entire board was new as of the summer of 2003, Murphy said. She said she had given the new members memos on ethics, including conflicts of interest.”

May 18, 2004: (March 21, 2008; 12:10 p.m. Rezko trial transcripts)

“Another government wiretap has been played with Antoin “Tony” Rezko’s voice on it, and this one could prove damaging to his defense. On the tape, recorded May 18, 2004, Rezko can be heard giving orders to political fixer Stuart Levine about how he wanted to manipulate the vote of one of Levine’s fellow members on the Illinois Health Facilities Planning board, Danalynn Rice.

June 7, 2004: Stuart Levine, member of the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board, abruptly resigns. This is the first indication that the Blagojevich administration is under federal criminal investigation.

July 2, 2004: Stuart Levine resigns from the state Teachers’ Retirement System board.
July 27, 2004: Obama Democratic Convention Speech.

Sept. 15, 2005: Joseph Cari, former lawyer for the state’s teacher’s pension board pleads guilty to extortion. A high ranking public official is described in court documents only as “Public official A.”
Oct. 25, 2005: The Chicago Tribune reports about a federal grand jury investigation into the alleged political hiring practices of the Blagojevich administration.
Late 2005 early 2006: From the Kenneth J. Conner complaint against Mutual Bank filed Oct. 16, 2008. The lawsuit is still active.

“11.  In late 2005 or early 2006, Conner performed an appraisal review of the Adams Appraisal (Exhibit C) per the directive of Richard Barth and James Murphy. Conner prepared a written Appraisal Review report (ARR) opining that the Adams Appraisal overvalued the Greenwood lot by a minimum of $ 125,000.00″

“18.  On October 23, 2007, eight days after Conner’s October 15, 2007 email to Schlabach attached as Exhibit J, Mutual Bank terminated Conner’s employment for pretextual reasons.”

Conner later told World Net daily when he initially was fired, that the bank and the Rezkos were engaged in “fraud, bribes or kickbacks, use whatever term you want,” to benefit the Obamas.

Soon after the Blagojevich arrest, Conner was interviewed by investigators from Fitzgerald’s office.
Jan. 2006: Rita Rezko sells the Obamas one-sixth of her lot for $104,500.
Feb. 4, 2006: (Chicago Sun-Times)

“Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has always been rumored to be interested in higher office. A single entry in a campaign-finance report he filed this week could add fuel to the speculation.

Blagojevich paid $7,500 in December to one of the top Democratic political strategists in Iowa, where contacts are important for anyone with presidential aspirations.”
Feb. 19, 2006: Blagojevich began his 2006 re-election to IL Governor.

Oct. 22, 2006: Obama publicly states he is considering a run for the Presidency.
Oct. 27, 2006: Stuart Levine pleads guilty in a scheme to squeeze millions of dollars from firms seeking state business. Court papers contain allegations that Rezko and  Christopher Kelly were using their influence for corrupt purposes.
Nov. 7, 2006 (Chicago SunTimes)

“The Rezko story broke last week, when Obama was wrapping up a national tour serving several purposes: promote his new book, The Audacity of Hope, raise money and stump for Democrats, and lay the groundwork for a possible 2008 White House bid.”
Jan. 16, 2007:  Obama announces his intention to run for president.

“I’ve navigated some fairly difficult territory in my political career and, you know, there are some folks in Springfield who are pretty wily.

And I’ve always been able to operate effectively, but also do so in a way that’s consistent with my values and ethics. I make no claims of perfection, but I think that generally my judgment and my assessments of people have been pretty good and that’s part of how I’ve stayed out of trouble in what can be a pretty hurly burly political environment. ….. I think that the way [voters should view the Rezko relationship] is that I made a mistake in not seeing the potential conflicts of interest or appearances of impropriety. But they should see somebody who was not engaged in any wrongdoing, who did not in any way betray the public trust, who has maintained consistently high ethical standards and who they can trust.”

“A former Illinois real estate specialist says FBI agents have questioned him about a Chicago property that had been bought by convicted felon Tony Rezko’s wife and later sold to the couple’s next-door neighbor, Sen. Barack Obama.

The real estate specialist, Kenneth J. Conner, said bank officials replaced an appraisal review he prepared on the property and FBI agents were investigating in late 2007 whether the Rezko-Obama deal was proper.

“Agents and I talked about payoff, bribe, kickback for a long time, though it took them only a short number of minutes of talking with me while looking at the appraisal to acknowledge what they already seemed to know: The Rezko lot was grossly overvalued,” Mr. Conner told The Washington Times Monday.

“Rezko paid the asking price on the same day Obama paid $300,000 less than the asking price to the same seller for his adjacent mansion,” he said. “This begs the question of payoff, bribe, kickback.””

The public official denies any such conversation.

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

“Live free or die.”…New Hampshire state motto

 The mainstream media and the US Justice Department have been protecting Obama since 2008. In the LTC Terry Lakin Court Martial last year, Judge Denise Lind addressed the opening up of evidence about Obama’s eligibility in this manner:  “opening up such evidence could be an “embarrassment” to the president.” An embarassment means that he is not president.

More states are addresing the issue of vetting presidential candidates during the election cycle. New Hampshire is one of those states.

From the New Hampshire Journal March 9, 2011.

“Presidential candidates who want to be on New Hampshire’s primary ballot next year may have to produce a birth certificate under a proposal being brought before a state House committee.

Election Law Chairman David Bates said his committee will consider a bill Wednesday to require candidates to provide a birth certificate and affidavit swearing they are at least 35 years old and have lived in the United States for 14 years, as called for in the U.S. Constitution to qualify for the presidency.

“They need to produce a certified copy of the long form of their birth certificate and an affidavit swearing to residency,” the Windham Republican said Tuesday.

New Hampshire holds the earliest presidential primaries and takes pride that its voters help launch contenders toward the White House.
Bates said the purpose of the bill is to ensure that only those truly qualified for the presidency are on the ballot. He emphasized that the measure was not aimed at President Barack Obama, and said he may seek to make the bill effective in 2013 after the next election. If New Hampshire sought to make the requirement effective immediately, “then we’ll have a circus,” he predicted.

Meanwhile, House Republican Leader D.J. Bettencourt issued a statement against the measure.

“It is unnecessary and detracts from important business, namely our economy,” he said. “Moreover, this potential amendment could represent a threat to our first in the nation primary as it gives other states reason and desire to try to jump us in line.””

“Live free or die.”….I don’t think so!

Uphold your oath and duty or get the hell out of office!

From Macon.com March 2, 2011.

“A bill signed by 94 state House members would require all presidential and vice presidential candidates to present a birth certificate to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office before they can be put on the statewide ballot.

The Presidential Eligibility Assurance Act, House Bill 401, would demand of each candidate a long-form birth certificate, a sworn statement that the candidate has never been a citizen of another country and a confirmation that the candidate has lived in the U.S. for the previous 14 years.

 During the 2008 presidential elections, allegations were raised that then-candidate Barack Obama was not a U.S. citizen, which spurred him to release documentation from Hawaii confirming his birth in that state.

Rep. Mark Hatfield, R-Waycross, the lead author on the bill, is skeptical of the documentation.

The document is a certificate of live birth from the state of Hawaii, valid for use in court proceedings and is considered by Hawaii a legitimate birth certificate.

But Hatfield called on Obama to release the actual piece of paper issued at his 1961 birth.

“I’m saying I don’t know where Obama was born,” said Hatfield. “It’s not just an Obama question.

It seeks to fill the void left by Congress” in enforcing Article II of the Constitution on presidential eligibility.”

Effective date to be changed to July 2013, after the 2012 presidential election. This was announced by GA Rep Hatfield on a radio show appearance last night. Contact GA Rep Hatfield for more details on his proposed language changes to GA HB401.”

From commenter da verg on March 11, 2011.

“ok
people listen up
need a massive run for the GA house leadership, here is response i got back
from rep supporting the bill
Please understand that I am dealing with recalcitrant leadership which will not allow the bill to move through the committee process. We are trying to get the bill dislodged from subcommittee, and this proposal was made in an attempt to get the House leadership to allow the bill to be considered. The bill would not be required to stay in this form, but we have to try something to get the bill moving. If we don’t get some movement right away, the bill will be dead for the year. You don’t need to convince me that Obama needs to be subject to a law requiring proof of eligibility; I believe it wholeheartedly and have been actively advocating for it for years. Your efforts would be better spent contacting the leadership of the Georgia House and demanding that the bill be allowed to move. Nothing short of massive public outcry is going to get their attention it seems. I would appreciate your efforts and continued support of the bill.”

Georgia of all places. What the hell is wrong with people in this country!

Blagojevich attorneys paid, Trial should continue, Media spins senate seat, Rest of the story

“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

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

From the Chicago Tribune March 12, 2011.

“Listen up, taxpayers. Rod Blagojevich is ready to deal.

The former governor, whose corruption trial last summer ended with a single conviction for lying to the FBI, is preparing for a do-over on 20 remaining charges.

He’s broke. The government’s broke. So here’s the pitch: Let’s call the whole thing off.

Blagojevich isn’t offering to plead guilty to any of the charges. He just wants the judge to go ahead and sentence him on the perjury charge, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison, and forget the rest — including that business about trying to sell a U.S. Senate seat to the highest bidder. A second trial would be an “irresponsible use of taxpayer funds,” his attorneys say.”

“But so what? Shall we cancel all trials until the federal deficit is under control? “Defendants should not reap a benefit from a budget crisis,” former federal prosecutor Jeffrey Cramer told the Tribune. He called the motion “frivolous.”

In their motion, Blagojevich’s lawyers complained that they couldn’t prepare for trial because the government’s cash-flow problems caused it to suspend payments. That’s a fair point. Magically, the checks were cut the day they filed their motion.

Keep ‘em coming, Uncle Sam. We’re pretty sure the trial’s a go.”

What is the real story here aside from the obvious ongoing Blagojevich chicanery. The fact that the media, in lockstep with the corrupt Justice Dept., has focused on the selling of the senate seat and ignored the significance of counts 1,2 and 4 being dropped. Once again here is a reminder.
