Jacob Kiferbaum sentenced, Blagojevich Rezko Levine Obama crony, Health Facilities Planning Board rigging, Obama IL senate committee changed members from 15 to 9

“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 wait until December 2008 to arrest Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

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

From My Fox Chicago July 31, 2013.

“Blagojevich-linked figure sentenced to 27 months”

“A piece of unfinished business from the decade-long investigation of Illinois’ imprisoned ex-governor, Rod Blagojevich, was done in federal court in Chicago.

Building contractor Jacob Kiferbaum (KEE’-fur-bowm) pleaded guilty to attempted extortion and was sentenced Wednesday to 27 months. The 61-year-old has admitted he and others with links to Blagojevich threatened to deny state permission for a suburban hospital’s expansion unless it hired Kiferbaum’s firm. Prior to the sentencing a tearful Kiferbaum apologized to the court and his family.”
“A 2003 investigation into the scheme triggered a series of investigations that eventually toppled dozens of powerbrokers, including Blagojevich.”

I keep reminding everyone that the investigation began in 2003 and Blagojevich was arrested after the 2008 elections.

Patrick Fitzgerald was diverted on a wild goose chase in the Valerie Plame controversy.

Colin Powell knew this.

I also keep reminding everyone that the rigging of the IL Health Facilities Planning board was only possible with the help of Obama’s IL senate committee.

The number of members was changed from 15 to 9.

From the Kiferbaum indictment press release.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MONDAY MAY 9, 2005

“CHICAGO – Three Chicago area executives – one of them a former member of the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board, which controls medical facility construction projects in Illinois, and one a managing director of Bear Stearns & Co., an investment firm that arranges financing for public works projects in Illinois – were indicted on federal charges for allegedly engaging in insider-dealing, influence-peddling, kickbacks and corruption involving their private interests and public duties, federal officials announced today. One defendant, Stuart Levine, a lawyer and businessman, allegedly engaged in a fraud scheme to obtain a total of at least $9.5 million for himself and certain associates, while the other two defendants, Jacob Kiferbaum, an architect and construction firm executive, and P. Nicholas Hurtgen, a lawyer and investment banker, allegedly participated in the same fraud scheme to obtain multi-million dollar contracts for their businesses through construction kickbacks or other fraudulent deals. Levine and Hurtgen were arrested this morning by federal agents. Kiferbaum is cooperating with the investigation and was not arrested. All three were charged with various counts of fraud and extortion in a 28-count indictment that was returned by federal grand jury last Wednesday and unsealed today, announced Patrick J. Fitzgerald, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois.”

“Stuart Levine – 19 counts of mail fraud, 4 counts of wire fraud, 2 counts of misapplication of funds, 2 counts of money laundering and one count of extortion – a businessman whose interests included S.L. Investment Enterprises, L.P., and a former member of the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board (Planning Board), a state commission appointed by the Governor that grants or denies a permit, known as a “Certificate of Need” (CON), to build hospitals, physician offices or other medical facilities statewide. Levine was also a member of the board of trustees of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, formerly known as Finch University of Health Sciences/Chicago Medical School (Chicago Medical School or CMS) in North Chicago, and he was chairman of its real estate committee. He was also a trustee of the Northshore Supporting Organization (NSO), a charitable trust that supported Chicago Medical School;”

“Jacob Kiferbaum – 16 counts of mail fraud, 3 counts of wire fraud, 2 counts of misapplication of funds and one count of extortion – chief executive officer of KCC Group Design + Build, Inc., formerly known as Kiferbaum Construction Corp., of Deerfield. Kiferbaum was also a trustee of Chicago Medical School;”

“Mercy Hospital – $1.5 million kickback from Kiferbaum to Levine: Levine solicited a kickback of approximately $1.5 million from Kiferbaum relating to the construction of Mercy Hospital’s $49 million Crystal Lake facility. Kiferbaum agreed to pay a kickback, with the exact amount and manner of the payments to be determined at a later date. Levine used his influence with the Planning Board to ensure that Mercy Hospital received approval of its application to build the Crystal Lake hospital after hiring Kiferbaum’s company. In voting for, and influencing other Planning Board members to vote for, Mercy’s application, Levine concealed from the Planning Board his financial arrangement or contacts with Kiferbaum. After the Planning Board voted to approve Mercy’s application on April 21, 2004, Levine reported to Individual 1 that hiring Kiferbaum did it for Mercy. When Levine told Kiferbaum that no one really knew that Levine was orchestrating the approval, Kiferbaum said he could not thank Levine enough, and Levine said they were in this together. Levine directed that Kiferbaum pay the kickback proceeds to Individual 1 pursuant to a sham consulting contract for $1,728,000, which included the $1.5 million kickback that Levine had solicited and $228,000 that Kiferbaum still owed from the CMS addition kickback. On May 1, 2004, Levine told Individual 1 that other people knew that Mercy received its CON because of the combination of Kiferbaum, Hurtgen and a law firm and that this information would spread like wildfire.”

    The Valerie Plame charade is about to resurface.

    Valerie Plame is now “Fair Game”

    Wait till you see my next article on the jobs report from ADP.
    Straight out of “1984”

  3. citizenwells,

    Amazing the amount of means of communication we have these days and yet so little truth gets through.

  4. Sometimes I think I must be losing it. Please help!

    Yesterday the usurper came out with his “great” plan to create middle class jobs. He wants to reduce the corp. tax rate (and also individual) but only if the funds can be used by the government to create these jobs for middle America. Huh??? What funds? What am I missing? Well, the unwashed masses are eating it up like manna from heaven. What dupes!

    Granted, Reaganomics, which conservatives embrace, does set forth the principle that lower taxes eventually increase economic growth and bring more money into the public coffers, but we all know that the usurper’s spending will come FIRST….. How can there be an immediate income flow from reduced taxes to pay for all of this spending he wants? Who is crazy?
    Is it I? I hope someone in Congress can see through this charade.

  5. There has been considerable talk on Fox today about the fact that the FBI has not made any recognizable effort to apprehend the Libyans responsible for the Benghazi deaths ten months ago. They are still walking around free as a bird over there. Congress is now giving an 30-day ultimatum to the new FBI director to give an explanation. We’ll see how far that goes.

    The explanation is so simple a child could understand. We have a dictator in the W.H. who controls the DOJ completely. The FBI is under the control of the DOJ. Any questions? The dictator just appointed the new FBI director. When is Congress going to publicly acknowledge the truth that we are facing?

  6. CabbyAZ………
    If you take a look at what our friend in Venezuela”HUGO” done everything so far is virtually a carbon copy. When HUGO gave Lil Barry the book my guess is that Lil Barry read it and decided that Hugo was right. Then take a look at Communist Cuba. Fidel,and Raul perpetrated the Cuba take over, and Hugo read Raul’s book,a copy of which he gave to Soetoro. In spite of all the similarities it seems as though NOBODY can see the parallel. Chavez OPENLY stated that it was NOT until he finally controlled the MEDIA that he was able to get complete control over Venezuela.

  7. Then to keep control you must rewrite any,or all laws, or circumvent them, with executive orders………..VOILA!……dictatorship. One of the components of a dictatorship is a totally stupid,or otherwise ignorant public masse, who because of their stupidity cannot even see through the charade, and/or the public masse are too lazy to even take an interest in seeing through it. They simply do not give a damn.Therein lies the US dilemma.

  8. ………..unfortunately the larger masse of the US has become illiterate wimps, who have been made to believe that UP is DOWN,and the greater mass obviously do not have the will to even question what is being rammed down their throats. They just open their mouths on command and ingest larger, and larger bites of the Soetoro BULLSH#T.

  9. ………and sadly there is a fast growing segment of our population who have filthy stinking,rear ends,hats on backwards,pick their noses, and have one or two word vocabularies, and a matching intelligence quotient.They think Soetoro is C-O-O-L, THEY RAPE ROB,AND MURDER PEOPLE AT WILL, and law enforcement does very little to bring them to justice.

  10. …….and within the same crowd dwells the Chicago type of politicians.

    bye bye all Have a really great day……..godbless!

  11. Isn’t this the police chief who came out in defense of the Cold Case Posse and made some videos against “O” after the sheriff’s and police officer’s convention in MO about a month ago? If so, it didn’t take long for the establishment to go after him.

    *********************************
    Cabby, I’m disappointed in you! After five years of watching the usurper, you should know by now that you must take off your hat of sense and reason and put on his hat of craftiness, deception and crookedness to understand his ways.

    Don’t you GET it? His new economic plan has nothing to do with matching funds. Absolutely not!! It is all about throwing down the gauntlet to the Repubs to put them into a catch-22 position. The usurper wants to spend, spend, spend, and the conservative Repubs are all for lowering taxes. So he is setting a trap: “I will lower taxes IF I can spend to ‘create jobs for the middle class’. How can you refuse?” If they reject his wonderful plan, then they will be blamed for refusing to lower taxes.

    You know that he never quit campaigning. After five years he is still not leading, and one of his main goals is to get rid of the opposition. I am surprised and disappointed, Cabby, that you temporarily did not see through his scheme. Wise up, Sista!
