“Jesse Jackson Jr. going to jail”

“Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., once a rising Democratic star whose political fortunes imploded over the use of campaign finances to support lavish personal spending, was sentenced to 30 months in prison on Wednesday.

“I misled the American people,” Jackson, 48, said before U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson imposed the term, which she said should be served in Alabama.

The ex-Illinois lawmaker’s wife, Sandi, received a 12-month sentence for her role in her husband’s misuse of roughly $750,000 in campaign funds over several years.

As the judge read her sentence, Sandi Jackson wept. Her husband smiled slightly when he received his punishment, which was less than what the government sought.

The pair pleaded guilty in February to various charges — Jackson to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, and false statements; and his wife to filing false tax returns.”

“Prosecutors had sought a four-year sentence for Jackson and 18 months in jail and restitution of $168,550 for his wife.

“This is a sad day that involves a waste of talent,” prosecutor Matthew Graves said. “They were in the top 10 percent of household earnings in the United States. There’s just no need for this kind of conduct.”

Graves said that Jackson did not “deserve credit” for his job as a congressman.”

  1. Video: Obama Body Man Reggie Love Talks Obama Birth Certificate; Documents Get Lost

    Love: Obama Played Cards During Osama Raid;

    ‘I Can’t Watch This Entire Thing,’ Obama Said

    By Daniel Halper @ Weekly Standard

    Reggie Love says he and President Obama played cards during the Osama bin Laden raid, and that the president told him, “I can’t watch this entire thing.”

    “Most people were like down in the Situation Room and [President Obama] was like, ‘I’m not going to be down there, I can’t watch this entire thing,’ We must have played 15 games of spades,” said Love at a public event. [...] Continued at Weekly Standard.

    “Drudge Report hits Cruz with eligibility problem – IGNORES Obama’s!”

    “In a baffling show of defiance against the Zullo/Arpaio investigation which now involves several US congressmen Matt Drudge of Drudge Report is exploring Ted Cruz’ eligibility over his potential run for President while ignoring the current president’s obvious fraudulent usurpation of the office. Here are today’s headlines from the Drudge Report on the matter.

    CNN: Is Cruz Eligible To Run For President?

    Natural-born citizen?

    With Drudge’s millions of visits to his site he could have gone a long way in pushing the Obama fraud into the front pages of every media outlet as well as into the conversations of more Americans. So the question remains: what has Matt Drudge to gain from pushing the Cruz eligibility issue but NOT Obama’s?”

    Observer,

    First and foremost thank you for all of the informative articles you link.

    You have informed me on so many issues.

    Thanks again.

    And not a PEEP from the media about Obama playing “spades as Bin Laden was supposedly killed.

    Why is this NOT being talked about 24/7??

    IB remember its racist to talk or report anything bad about the “O”,

    I heard Ann Coulter today on Hannity (radio show) saying that you either had to be born of two US citizen parents OR born on US soil to be considered a Natural Born Citizen. She said that some Harvard Law Professors would have to interpret what the Constitution means by Natural Born Citizen. More rewritting of our history.

    What an idiot.

    Cruz isn’t eligible, no matter how hard you try, Cruz is NOT eligible.

    Neither is Rubio.

    Neither is Jindal.

    To be a Natural Born citizen, you have to be BOTH born on US soil, and have TWO citizen parents.

    A “teaching” moment gone.

    The more I listen to Coulter, the more I dislike what she says, mainly because she molds an argument to fit HER outcome.

    What is sad is that BOTH parties are trotting out INeligibles to run for office. Do we not have someone who qualifies to be President in either of the two major political parties?

    It doesn’t appear so.

  6. Interested Bystander

    So Obama just thumbs his nose at us by sending Graham and McCain to Egypt.

    If this isn’t PROOF that BOTH SIDES are in on this scheme (and that’s exactly what it is, a SCHEME), then I give up.

    I don’t care what this guy in Egypt has, it WON’T put an end to our misery. Obama will continue to be President and as it gets closer to 2016, the more and more blatant Obama will become.

    I’m sorry, but Obama is NOT a good man, he’s a puppet, and not a very good one either.

  7. Interested Bystander

    Philo-Publius,

    And Reggie just sat up there with his fingers entertwined and just “matter of factly” told the audience that Obama played SPADES during the Bin Laden raid.

    The Commander in Chief of the United States military “couldn’t watch the entire thing” and thought maybe clearing his mind with some cards was the LEADER’S thing to do.

    Shows where he places the lives of our soldiers, doesn’t it?

  8. Interested Bystander

    Benghazi was a GUN RUNNING OPERATION command center.

    Hello…………………………….

    How many times, and how many ways does it have to be told to us?

    So what North got called under the carpet for back in the 80′s, Obama gets a “pass” in the 2010′s?

    And please tell me WHY are we supplying weapons to our enemy?

    Didn’t we learn our lesson in Iran?

    Nope

    Iraq?

    Nope

    Afghanistan?

    Nope

    See a trend?

    Can someone tell me of ONE time when we helped a people “free” itself, and it was successful?

  9. Interested Bystander

    I finally seen the Reggie Love clip on The Five.

    I hope it goes viral.

    But like Philo-Publius commented:

    THAT would be racist.

  10. Brought forward from the prior thread:

    Mr. Bill(ms. helga) | August 14, 2013 at 12:43 pm |
    Sorry OT, but if there was a couple that started the whole breakdown of our country this is it.
    ****************************
    Mr. Bill,
    I certainly agree with you about Hill and Billary! Way back when the House proceeded with impeachment and then the Repubs in the Senate refused to remove him from office, I said then and believe it more than ever now: “Someday those Repubs will rue the day that they caved in.”

    Both of the Clintons have criminal records for which they have never been prosecuted, and they set the tone for lying and disgraceful acts, including murder and other retaliation on their political enemies. The teenagers of that period are now young adults of today. It is little wonder that there is such blurring of right and wrong.

    =================================
    Glad to be of some service. Only wish that the majority of news today didn’t leave us either depressed or terribly angry after reading! These are the times when Satan knows his time is short and he’s pulling out all the stops and using the most aggressive thugs to do his bidding….like in Egypt. One would think that any president, esp. one whose own policies opened the door for the most aggressive thugs to move in in the Middle East would be back at the fort rather than seen munching on delectables while “Rome”/Egypt burns.

    Putin is probably salivating at the chaos in Egypt so he can extend his hand beyond Iran and Syria. Obama may be backing the Sunni thugs but who will have the nukes in the end for total control in the region??? Nice to see though that some good Muslims were standing in defense of some of the Catholic Churches before they were attacked/destroyed.

    Here’s the list of burned churches and buildings:
    ◾Church of the Virgin Mary and Anba Abram of the Copts Orthodox. the village of Daljah, the district of Deir Mawas, Minya province. Burning and demolishing the church.
    ◾The Church of St. Mina of the Coptic Orthodox. The neighborhood of Abu Hilal Kebly Minya province. Burning the church.
    ◾St. George Church. Coptic Orthodox archbishopric land, Sohag province. Burning the church.
    ◾Baptist Church. Status of Bani Mazar, Minya province. Burning the church
    ◾Church of the Virgin Lady of the Copts Orthodox, Nazlah village, Yusuf the righteous district, Fayoum province. Burning the church…
    ◾Monastery of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd School. Suez. Burning.
    ◾Church of Franciscan fathers. Street 23. Suez. Burning.
    ◾Bible society friends, fayoum. Burning.
    ◾Church of Saint Maximus. 45th Street. Alexandria. Harassment.
    ◾Church of Prince Taodharos Elchatbi. Fayoum. Burning.
    ◾Church of the virgin Lady of the Coptic Orthodox. butchers street. Abu Hilal District. Minia province. Burning.
    ◾Church of Saint Mark. Catholic Copts. Abu Hilal District, Minya province. Burning.
    ◾Church of the Jesuit Fathers. Abu Hilal District, Minya province. Burning.
    ◾Church of the Virgin and Anba Abram. Sohag. Burning.
    ◾Church of Saint Mark, and the building of services. electricity Street. Sohag. Burning.
    ◾The house of Father Onjelios king. Pastor of the Church of the Virgin and Anba Abram in Daljah. Deir Mawas district. Minya province. Burning the house completely.
    ◾Burning the Greek Church in Suez.

    Pray for peace and reconciliation in Egypt and pray for God’s divine protection on our Christian brothers and sisters. Pray their faith will be strengthened during this time of tribulation!

  13. Breaking: Rep Stockman Invites Missouri Rodeo Clown Tuffy Gessling to Perform in Texas

    Liberals want to bronco bust dissent, create a state of fear –

    WASHINGTON — Congressman Steve Stockman Wednesday invited the rodeo clowns who performed at the Missouri State Fair, and were banned or ordered into “sensitivity training” when one clown mocked President Barack Obama, to perform at a rodeo in Texas’ 36th District. Fair officials did not reveal the clown’s identity. “Liberals want to bronco bust dissent. But Texans value speech, even if its speech they don’t agree with,” said Stockman,

  15. ……..We have finally convicted a JACKSON har de har. Do you suppose they had it coming? Now all we have to do is nail their FATHER. Any suggestions! Then we can turn our attention to “OLE SHARPIE”. I believe that both of them have done more in the last few months to set RACE relations back at least fifty years. OF course the ole RANGLER hasn’t helped either. Playing “Spades” is probably another name for “BACKSIDE BINGO”.

  16. Ollie North said a few years ago that with the new laws relating to military conduct, both on and off the battlefield, the foot soldier will now not only have to watch his flanks but his REAR as well. Well said Ollie!

  17. ……I can’t help wonder where the first US MADE SURFACE TO AIR MISSILE will be used to KILL AMERICANS. Ain’t this sort of like “FAST AND FURIOUS?” When is somebody going to DRAFT CLINT EASTWOOD to run for POTUS. I would be praying that he would bring his .44 Magnum S&W with him and would say to Msssssssss.Harriet Reid “go ahead punk…..MAKE MY DAY!” Imagine ……Dirty Harry as POTUS

  18. BYE BYE………………..Godbless!

  19. oldsailor81,
    Didn’t the Jackson crowd offer a sizable sum of money to Blagoiavitch for the Obama senate seat back in 2008? There was never a word about this bribe, and nobody was ever brought to justice.

    “As reported here Obama’s body man dropped a couple bombshells about Obama’s birth certificate and the Bin Laden raid. Apparently Reggie gave more details than Team Obama wanted people to know. Not long after the video with Love surfaced and started to spread like wildfire it was removed by The Artists and Athletes Alliance. Wonder why they’d do something like that?

  25. Zach,
    Here is a review of an obama mask being sold at Amazon.com. How long before amazon.com bans the sale of obama masks?

    This review is from: Deluxe Barack Obama Adult Mask Size One-Size
    The quality is very good, very realistic. But once I put it on I started feeling these terrible compulsions. I held up three people on their way to work, took their wallets, and gave the wallets to some lazy people. Then I went to the library and ripped up every copy of the constitution they had in there. I started yelling, ‘I’m King of the World, I’m King of the World!” The police came and wrestled me to the ground, and took off the mask and the compulsions stopped. Thank God. They let me out on bail, but they’re keeping the mask for evidence. I warned them not to try it on, but I don’t think they believed me.

  27. Jonah – I don’t believe I could wear it. Last year, a friend of my wife’s was staying with us and her car had an Obama sticker on it. She had to fly somewhere and asked if you drive her to the airport in her car (100miles round trip). I said sure – only if we drive my car because I would not be in a car with an Obama sticker on it.

  28. Barry and Reggie playing SPADES…my butt….More like playing 69

  29. Zach,
    I received this email recently…….

    Subj: Cops in Texas do care
    I get irritated when people come down on our police officers, saying that they don’t care about or respect others. Well, here is a story that clearly shows not all cops are in that category.

    This story involves the police department in the small hill country
    town of Fredericksburg, TX who reported finding a man’s body last
    Saturday in the early evening in the Pedernales River near the state
    highway-87 bridge. The dead man’s name would not be released until his
    family had been notified.

    The victim apparently drowned due to excessive beer consumption while
    visiting “someone” in Kerrville . He was wearing black fishnet
    stockings, 10 inch spiked heels, a red garter belt, a pink G-string,
    purple lipstick, dazzel dust on his eyelids, 2 1/2 inch false
    eyelashes and an Obama T-shirt.

    The police removed the Obama T-shirt to spare his family any
    unnecessary embarrassment.
    See there, Texas police do care.

  30. Jonah,

    I believe I dated that man back in 1981, minus the t-shirt.

    It was only one date…

  31. …….Cops in Texas DO CARE……….Sounds as though even the TRANSSEXUALS are leaving California,and going to Texas. Sadly I know what Texas will become………..an OVERSIZE SAN FRANCISCO! (Queersville)!…..It won’t be long until with every step you take on a Texas street you will have another PROPOSITION from a FAGGOT. Nobody would miss California if it should break odff at the San Andreas fault and slide into the ocean. Suddenly people in Arizona would have WATERFRONT PROPERTY…..HAR HAR.

  32. Suek……….
    Saw a lot of them back in the 1950s, at Long Beach! The population of Long Beach was 125,000,……….they were ALL FA##OTS.

  33. Jonah ……
    Do you suppose they were ALL mistaken……maybe it was really a Gloria Allred impersonator.

  34. ………..I can’t remember the lady’s name who had the cooking show,who was cancelled by just about everybody…………SHE WON HER CASE AGAINST THE NI99ER, BITCH WHO TRIED TO SHAKE HER DOWN FOR MONEY. NOW I WOULD STRONGLY ADVISE MSSSSSSSSSSSSS,NI99ER TO GET THE HELL OUT OF TOWN …..FAST……… BETTER STILL JUST EVAPORATE!

  35. ………..ALWAYS REMEMBER…………”STILL WATER RUNS DEEP”.

  36. BYE,BYE …………..GODBLESS!

  40. There is an old saying that “every coin has two sides”…….that is also true and it is also true to say that every story in history has two sides. I have just completed watching a 6 hour Youtube special entitled, “ADOLF HITLER- The Greatest Story NEVER told”……

    In this video, which contained actual footage of over 5 and 1/2 hours of events and happenings that spanned World War II, I learned things that are not written down in the history books which teach our children about this terrible time in world events.

    I DO NOT condone or approve of the things Hitler’s war machine did but at the same time, ALL sides (especially the Soviet side) in this world war was doing things equally as bad……..

    If you have 6 hours to spare…you can bite this video off in small chunks…. I assure you that if you watch it from start to finish, you will come away with a different prospective on war in general, and a different outlook on those who fight it………

    Again, let me say in the strongest terms that I DO NOT approve of what Hitler did, but after watching this video, I can better understand why it happened……this is a historical proven view from the loser’s side.

    Napoleon said after his crushing defeat at Waterloo that, “HISTORY IS WRITTEN BY THE WINNERS”. That may be true and it may also be the only version taught in schools to later generations, but history also has another side of the story to tell for any conflict that deserves to be heard and evaluated….

    If you watch this video from start to finish, you will heard and see the other side of the coin for World War II and come away with a better understanding of WHO…WHAT….WHEN….WHY….and… WHERE.

    No stone is left unturned in this video……I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
    After watching this video, you may come away with a final evaluation of World War II that there were no winners…but isn’t that the way it is with all wars?

  41. Four hundred missiles capable of shooting down an American airliner in the hands of our enemies, and Barack Hussein Obama didn’t bother to tell the American people about it?

    Obama’s ‘Impeachable Offense’ Over New Benghazi Revelations

    We now know the CIA Annex in Benghazi was the hub for illegally shipping weapons to the Syrian rebels. That the CIA Annex contained three huge warehouses containing thousands of surface-to-air missiles, taking part in a proxy war to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad.

  42. I am going to get one of them there mask and put some real big ears on it and hang it up in my tree by the ears….and I am going to leave it there until it rots! I am also going to stick some needles in it too. :( I might even put it on a rope so that I can lower it down so I can give it one big spit wade right between the eyes and I think I will redo it each and every time that pr1ck makes me mad. And you NAAC Pri<ks go to He!!
