From the NY Times March 11, 2014.

“Illinois: Wiretaps of Ex-Governor Stay Sealed”

“An appellate court in Chicago ruled Tuesday that transcripts of F.B.I.wiretaps not played at former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s corruption trials should remain sealed, at least for now. The decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit came as it considered Mr. Blagojevich’s appeal, which asks the three-judge appellate panel to throw out his convictions.”

“The wiretaps are among those Judge James B. Zagel of Federal District Court barred the defense from playing to jurors. “

From Citizen Wells February 3, 2014.

Only about 2 percent of the total wiretap transcripts used as evidence were revealed during the Blagojevich trials.

Blagojevich defense lawyers want all of the wiretap transcripts made transparent.

From the Belleville News-Democrat February 3, 2014.
“Blagojevich transcripts at issue in appeal”

“Prosecutors and attorneys for Rod Blagojevich disagree over unsealing wiretap transcripts that are part of the imprisoned former governor’s appeal of his conviction.

The U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals had said it would open the records Monday.

But citing privacy, prosecutors want them to stay sealed. In a response filed Monday, defense lawyers say transparency should trump other concerns.”

“The defense says a lower court barred jurors from hearing certain wiretaps that could have helped Blagojevich. Transcripts of recordings not played at trial were recently submitted to the appellate court, and are the records in dispute.”

A perfect storm may be developing.

The Sheriff Arpaio Mike Zullo investigation is already tied to the AL Supreme Court Obama eligibility case.

Will the Alabama Supreme Court ruling coincide with the purported Mike Zullo announcement in March?

An update from Birther Report February 16, 2014.

“Mike Zullo Traces Obots to White House and They All Disappear Overnight”
“On Sunday afternoon, founder of WheresObamasBirthCertificate.com and radio show host Mike Volin told The Post & Email exclusively that Geir Smith has joined WOBC as a writer on the Cold Case Posse’s investigation of Obama’s long-form birth certificate.

Smith is a writer at the popular website beforeitsnews.com and also uses the alias King of Shambhala.

Smith will be a guest on Volin’s next WOBC radio show, which will take place on either Monday, February 24 or Tuesday, February 25. The Post & Email will announce a firm date as soon as it is scheduled and has agreed to appear as a guest on the show at Smith’s request.

“He’s under attack by the Obots,” Volin told us of Smith. Now he’s written an article about the Obots and the fact that it’s been so quiet. It’s a short article, but it gets right to the point.” “Obots” are ideological Obama supporters who have trolled the internet for at least five years to silence criticism of and investigation into the background of Barack Hussein Obama, often spreading disinformation.”
“Obama’s Obots have disappeared overnight. Where are they?

On Carl Gallup’s Freedom Friday radio show, Mike Zullo said they’ve traced the IP address of “RC” to DOD’s DARPA disinformation department.

The Obots have gone eerily silent ever since. Why?”
“Joe Arpaio is releasing all his investigation’s results in less than a month, during the month of March. The heavy hand of the law is clamping down on them and they just have a few days left till the curtain comes down for them.

The rats are scuttling for the exits. Or are they regrouping for a last stand?

The problem is that Mike Zullo’s got “proof, proof, proof” as he said on the radio show. Joe Arpaio’s got “stuff” on DOD and Obama.”

Even if the IL appeals court reviews the previously hidden Blagojevich wiretaps, it is doubtful that we will ever see them.

They touch Obama too much.

The Blagojevich “prosecution” and appeal is proceeding as predicted here.

Slowly and selectively to protect Obama.

From the Chicago SunTimes February 6, 2014.

“Credibility questioned of key witness against Blagojevich”

“Federal prosecutors told a judge Thursday they were dropping their arguments to boost a connected fundraiser’s prison sentence. The move came after the defense raised questions about their witness’ credibility.

The decision could be significant because that same witness — Rajinder Bedi — played a major role in another case, the trial of now-imprisoned ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

At issue was whether the fundraiser, Raghuveer Nayak, who was charged with a kickback scheme tied to surgical centers he owns, had a separate cash-back scheme involving Bedi.

Both Nayak and Bedi were involved in the Blagojevich investigation. Nayak was the so-called “emissary” to former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., who allegedly offered the Blagojevich camp more than $1 million if Blagojevich appointed Jackson to President Obama’s vacant U.S. Senate seat.

Bedi testified at Blagojevich’s trial that Nayak had engaged in a cash-back scheme, whereby Nayak would write him checks for doing no work and Bedi would kick back the cash. Nayak’s attorney, Tom McQueen, said the prosecution’s reversal in court on Thursday means his client faces charges involving a $23,000 loss to the government, rather than more than $750,000. Federal sentencing guidelines are driven in part by the amount of money that’s lost.

“We withdrew a request for a one-level enhancement today, based on Nayak’s alleged tax loss,” U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Randall Samborn confirmed.”

From NBC Chicago January 23, 2014.

“Department of Justice spokesman Randall Samborn said Wednesday’s proceedings were part of a two-day evidentiary hearing. They’ll continue Thursday. Nayak may or may not be sentenced at the end of the day Thursday.

A Chicago-area businessman convicted of bribery was scheduled to learn Wednesday whether he’ll get time in jail for his role in the corruption scandal involving former Illinoig Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Raghuveer Nayak wasn’t charged in the case of the now-imprisoned former governor but is alleged to have offered to raise $1 million for Blagojevich’s campaign if he named then-Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. to President Barack Obama’s old Senate seat.

A government court filing says the sentencing judge should consider those allegations, arguing that Nayak “corrupted the political process.””

From Citizen Wells June 26, 2012.

“A longtime friend of U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.who was at the center of a Senate seat scandal that sent ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich to prison was arrested Wednesday in his own federal fraud case, accused of bribing doctors to send patients to his surgical centers.

Raghuveer Nayak, a wealthy businessman and former campaign fundraiser for both politicians, was indicted on charges he secretly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to physicians from 2000 to 2010 to have patients referred to Rogers Park One Day Surgery Center, Lakeshore Surgery Center and other Chicago-area facilities he owned.

The investigation of his businesses had hung over Nayak’s head for years, and his lawyer, Thomas McQueen, said the charges were not unexpected. “He knew this had never gone away,” McQueen said after the FBI arrested his client at Nayak’s Oak Brook home.”

“The indictment of Nayak is seen as one of the final offshoots of the sweeping federal investigation known as Operation Board Games, which in addition to Blagojevich led to convictions of fundraiser Antoin “Tony” Rezko, formerAld. Edward Vrdolyak, Republican power broker William Cellini and others. One of the final sentences in cases connected to that probe could be handed down as soon as next week, when political insider turned federal witness Stuart Levine is expected to learn his punishment.”

“Nayak’s businesses have over the years needed the approval of state regulators and auditors, and Nayak became a big campaign bundler and contributor, donating more than $779,000 to elected officials including Blagojevich, Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Obama from the late 1990s until his name surfaced in the Blagojevich scandal.”

From ABC WLS TV in Chicago January 15, 2014.

“Blagojevich wins one; Appellate court to receive transcripts of all undercover tapes”

 

“The ABC7 Eyewitness News I-Team has learned of a victory for imprisoned Illinois former Governor Rod Blagojevich, albeit a small one.

Blagojevich finally has an answer to the question he asked so many times: Why not play all the tapes?

When he wasn’t quoting Kipling or signing autographs at the federal courthouse, former Governor Blagojevich would frequently repeat that line: play all the tapes.

Of course, he was referring to the hours and hours of undercover recordings made by the FBI, only a portion of which were played at trial. Blagojevich believed that if the jury could heard them all he would have been cleared. That didn’t happen but the appellate court will now be able to consider all the tapes.
“Play all the tapes” became Blagojevich’s battle cry at both of his corruption trials.

And Wednesday night it is resurrected as his appeal moves forward.

With the ex-governor tucked in for another dozen years or so at a federal penitentiary in Colorado, his attorneys in Chicago filed a motion in federal court, stating that Blagjoevich’s submitted wiretap transcripts were not filed with the appeals court clerk, comprised of an index and 52 transcripts.”

“Wednesday night Judge James Zagel has authorized turn over of all the transcripts.”

I believe that Rod Blagojevich made a deal with Obama. Probably beginning in 2006.

I believe that Blagojevich, who was deeper under investigation than Obama, agreed to take the heat for a reduced or pardoned sentence.

ObamaBlagoNov2008

A lot of interesting things can happen in 2014.

We will know the results of the Blagojevich appeal ruling within a few weeks.

I believe that he will get a sentence reduction or a new trial.

This will determine what Obama does next. And of course Obama not being impeached or arrested will too.

If Obama does not lose senate control in 2014, I believe that he will pardon Blagojevich.

Of course the AL Supreme Court may rule that Obama is ineligible.

The Sheriff Joe Arpaio investigation may convince enough congressmen to investigate Obama.

Dead men don’t talk or do they?

There are plenty still alive who may talk. Even Tony Rezko.

The economy has been propped up by smoke and mirrors. That can only work so long.

Despite the best efforts of the media to talk of an economic recovery the economy on your street, not Wall St. has been heavily impacted.

Millions are unemployed, working part time, receiving food stamps and now being charged more for their healthcare insurance.

The media and Obama camp are trying to prop up the economy through the 2014 elections. They have to win.

By their own admission Obama could be impeached otherwise.

My hope for 2014 is that Obama is arrested and removed from office.

Survival of our nation depends on it.
