“Why has the mainstream media avoided coverage of the William Cellini trial? Why are Chicago news stories being scrubbed or altered?”…Citizen Wells

Citizen News Mobile is a new way to keep up with Citizen Wells and Citizen News on the go. Feeds from the Citizen Wells blog and the Citizen News site along with news snippets posted on the mobile site are presented faster and more compactly for mobile devices. This, as most new projects, will evolve and hopefully improve over time.

Here are the first two news snippets posted there.

“A verdict in the Blagojevich trial is expected soon. However the real verdict is the continued protection of Obama by the US Justice Department and the media. The William Cellini trial is scheduled for August 2011. Tony Rezko is mentioned throughout the Cellini indictment. Will Rezko take the witness stand?”

“Citizen Wells has been covering Chicago corruption involving Tony Rezko, Rod Blagojevich and Barack Obama for over three years. A lesser known tie to Obama, et al, William Cellini is scheduled for trial in August 2011. Mention of William Cellini is conspicuously absent from mainstream media coverage. Is this because of the common denominator of Tony Rezko? Or perhaps the time period that Obama had the most contact with Rezko, 2003 to 2005? More to come from Citizen Wells soon.”

Maureen Dowd, NY Times, Poem of Dowd’s attack on LTC Terry Lakin, Obama big brother spokesman

Maureen Dowd, NY Times, Poem of Dowd’s attack on LTC Terry Lakin, Obama big brother spokesman

“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

Dedicated to Maureen Dowd, in lock step with the NY Times,
poster child for “The end justifies the means” and Orwellian
Big Brother speaker for Obama.

DO stands for Defense Officer.
The rest is obvious.

Most of DO’s down in DO ville liked justice a lot,
But Maureen Dowd, who lived just north of DO ville, did not.

She wrote nasty Dowd things, she laughed with her friends,
She knew writing mean things was the means to an end.

Before Christmas she entered the courtroom just achin,
To belittle, discredit and besmirch Colonel Lakin.

It seems Colonel lakin cared too much to be heard,
Not a glimpse at certificate, not a mention or word,

When Lakin spoke of guilt and of duty and of honor,
Maureen Dowd smiled in laughter, quite befitting her genre,

Kindred DO’s in disgust observed Dowd with their irks,
As Dowd laughed at Lakin with her Dowdy Dowd smirks.

Dowd reported the outcome with her own biased clatter,
She protected Obama, what could possibly matter.

But Maureen Dowd failed in mission,  she forgot,
Most of DO’s down in DO ville like justice a lot.

LTC Terry Lakin conviction triggers congressional investigation, Lt. General Thomas McInerney, Judge Lind unfair, Citizen Wells open thread, December 11, 2010

LTC Terry Lakin conviction triggers congressional investigation, Lt. General Thomas McInerney, Judge Lind unfair

“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 December 10, 2010.

“Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney predicts the incoming Republican-controlled House of Representatives will launch an investigation if Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin is convicted in next week’s court martial.

Lakin is on trial for refusing to obey orders to deploy to Afghanistan. He challenged the orders because he questions President Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as commander-in-chief of the armed forces. His court martial is scheduled to begin Dec. 14.

“It looks like he’s not being treated fairly,” said McInerney in an interview Friday on Denver talk radio station KHOW.

“It’s important that he gets a fair trial, which means discovery. Since the Army will not allow that I believe in the final analysis that this will be overturned, but he may have to go to the slammer in Ft. Leavenworth.”

Lakin had hoped through the discovery process to force Obama to produce documentary evidence demonstrating his birth and citizenship status so that Obama’s authority to give orders as commander-in-chief would be demonstrated or disproven.

Note: A legal-defense fund has been set up for LTC Terry Lakin. Click for information.

As reported earlier by WND, court martial judge Col. Denise Lind, however, simply declared the orders received by Lakin were valid. Lind refused to allow Lakin to address the underlying eligibility issues and limited the scope of the trial to whether Lakin had knowingly disobeyed orders.

McInerney called on Congress to “do its job” and determine whether Obama is constitutionally eligible to serve as president.

“[Lakin] really had a very important point. He is not a birther, he is a constitutionalist,” said McInerney. “Now it shouldn’t be the job of a lieutenant colonel and flight surgeon in the U.S. Army to be the constitutionalist. It’s the job of the Congress and the executive agency to do that. But we’ve had 44 presidents of the United States and only one, the current president, has not shown a valid birth certificate.”

McInerney suggested Lakin is certain to be convicted if the court martial proceeds.”

“”The judge in this particular case said I do not know enough about the Army to be able to understand the Army’s position on the Uniform Code of Military Justice,” said McInerney, who added he once commanded an army division in Alaska as part of a joint Army-Air Force command.

“I am intimately familiar with the Uniform Code of Military Justice,” said McInerney. “But you get a judge … who says that I as a three-star general who had general court martial authority do not know enough about the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Dr. Terry Lakin is not going to get a fair trial in this particular proceeding.””

Citizen News, October 26, 2010, Voter fraud, White House insider on Obama behaviour, 99 weeks of unemployment

From Citizen News

Arizona, Colorado voter fraud

“On Friday it was reported that the Yuma Recorder’s office was checking the 3,000 last minute voter registration forms turned in by the far left Mi Familia Vota organization. The recorder’s office found that already more than 65% of the registrations were invalid due to the registrant not being a citizen, wrong/invalid address, false signature, etc.

Mi Familia Vota is a SEIU sub-organization. It is just as “non-partisan” as ACORN was before documented fraudulent behaviors finally killed it.”

NC voting machines malfunction in favor of Democrats

“A Craven County voter says he had a near miss at the polls on Thursday when an electronic voting machine completed his straight-party ticket for the opposite of what he intended.

Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.

“They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.””

White House Insider, Obama behaviour shocking.

“I’ll give you an example of why President Obama is not right for America.  He sure as hell has not been right for the party.  Not long ago, the president took a meeting.  He’s late, which apparently is becoming more and more common with him.  The meeting was almost cancelled.  In strolls the president, joking with an aide.  He plops down on a sofa, leans over and claps another guy on the back asking how he’s been.  Apologizes for being late, says he was “held up”.  He laughs some more.  The meeting begins.  After just ten minutes, during which time the president appears to almost totally withdraw into himself,  an aide walks in and whispers something to the president, who then nods and quickly stands up, shakes a few hands and tells another aide to update him later on the rest of the meeting.  As the president is walking out he is laughing at something yet again.  He asked no questions of those at the meeting – not one.  He left after just ten minutes, coming in laughing and leaving laughing.  His behavior during that brief time he was there was described as “borderline manic”.”

99 weeks of unemployment, Recession worse than depression.

“The economic jam we’re in has topped even the Great Depression in one respect: never have we had a recession this deep with a recovery this flat. Unemployment has been at nine and a half percent or above for 14 months.

Congress did something that it has never done before – it extended unemployment benefits to 99 weeks. That cost more than $100 billion, a huge expense for a government in debt.

But now, for many Americans 99 weeks have passed and there’s still no job in sight. Some have taken to calling themselves the “99ers.””

Glenn Beck motives, TheBlaze.com, Using truth to deceive?

“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

The following article was sent to me in an email this morning by a long time commenter and patriot. I am not certain if I totally agree with it. There is much food for thought. I can forgive Glenn Beck for not covering Obama’s eligibility in order to stay on the air to cover other crucial concerns (if that was his motive). However, when he insulted millions of concerned Americans who question Obama’s eligibility, including many in the military, including numerous high ranking officers and then finally LTC Terry Lakin, he went way over the line.

“The Beck Deception

Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier. – Charles F. Kettering

If you are a die-hard Glenn Beck fan (like I was), please keep a very open mind as you read this.  Our freedom depends on it.

I know too many “ex-Glenn Beck fans” who are using the wrong approach in attempting to show you why Glenn is more of a threat to the American people than he is a truth-teller or savior.  I don’t entirely fault them because I understand their frustration as well as their “sense of urgency”.  The simple fact of the matter is that if  “We The People” do not begin to think for ourselves, and stop the conformity, we will continue to be misled, and we will get nowhere in our fight to regain our freedom and liberties.

In my quest to understand how our country has gotten to where it is, I found Glenn Beck.  Not only did he seem to have the answers, he was also providing me with excellent information about people and groups (the czars, ACORN, SEIU, Andy Stern, Anita Dunn, etc.) who surround and influence our president and our policies.  I was sure Glenn had stumbled on some pretty beefy information which offered a great explanation as to why our country was going to hell in a hand basket.

For months, I never missed a Glenn Beck show. At the same time, I continued my relentless research on the internet for as much “truth” as I could get my hands on and I’m convinced this allowed me to keep a healthy perspective on “truth”.  One day while watching Glenn – a warning signal sounded in my head.   In realizing just how massive of a following that Glenn was gaining, I cautioned myself to be careful and to keep an open mind.  As indicated by history as well as the bible, I understood that anyone who has the ability to gain such a mass following of people also has the ability to lead that mass astray.

IN ORDER TO SUCCESSFULLY DECEIVE – YOU MUST USE TRUTH

You cannot gain a mass following by telling lies.  In order to deceive, You MUST use the truth…  or at the very least, what might be acknowledged as truth by the masses (more on this later).

The majority who align themselves with Glenn Beck consider themselves to be “conservatives.”  If you fall into this category, you do not follow CNN or MSNBC because “you are able to see the lies.”  You can’t conform to their viewpoint because there isn’t enough truth in their message to keep your attention.  CNN or MSNBC cannot deceive you because you see no truth in their message.  Deception can only deceive if it looks somewhat like the real thing.

Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive
BEFORE YOU UNDERSTAND “HOW” – YOU MUST UNDERSTAND “WHY”

Many of you will refuse to believe that you are being deceived by Glenn Beck because you cannot fathom any reason why he would do this. Without considering the big picture, this is understandable.  Because of this, you have rationalized that the “Beck Bashers” must either be jealous of his fame and fortune or they are just “idiot liberals.” Before we can begin to explore “how we are being deceived”, we must first ask the question, “Why?” The short answer is controlled opposition, and this is where it is crucial for many of you to gain and keep an open mind!

Some of you reading this already know that the truth (whole, entire truth) will never be televised. But, as I temporarily did, you are holding on to the hope that somehow, Beck/FOX managed to break free of this rule.  You may even think that FOX has discovered that there is more money in telling the truth – so they are going to continue to do it – until the Obama Administration decides to silence them.  If you believe there is any threat of FOX being shut down or of Beck being taken off the air – let me guarantee – this will never happen. Why?  Because Glenn Beck is the most valuable player on Team Obama than anyone else.  Why?  Because the elites behind the New World Order who own “Team Obama” also own all of mainstream media.”

“As I continued to watch Glenn Beck with an open mind, I began to see signs of deception.  I began to see signs of neo-conservatism.  I hadn’t even finished my “Arguing with Idiots” book.  Issues and actions that were extreme violations of the Constitution and our freedoms and liberties that were discussed all over the internet went for days unmentioned on his program. If and when they were mentioned, they were not given the attention they deserve.  Some were blown off entirely.

As I dug more and more into the 9/11 Truth Movement and I saw the legitimate questions coming from patriots, our war veterans, our military leaders, 9/11 commission members, aerospace engineers, experts, historians, pilots, architects and engineers, families of those killed, economists, I realized these people were not the “kooks” that Beck described. They were also not “dangerous” as Beck described.   I had to ask myself why he would mislead his followers.  Beck even went so far as to say that he “began hating the families of those who died on 9/11.” Someone who told us to “Question Boldly” suddenly had a zero tolerance level for questioning even from families who had more reason than anyone else to question.

I had no choice, in the face of all the evidence, to conclude that Beck is the ultimate deception because he makes the choice to deceive – as opposed to deceiving out of plain old ignorance.

I attribute much of my initial awakening to Glenn Beck –  but because I knew better than to give him my complete trust (I reserve that for God) – and I knew the importance of continuing to find truth on my own (as everyone needs to do, especially now), I knew when to part ways with him.  That ultimately led to me turning off the TV.  I do not get my news from the TV – because the truth isn’t televised and because you should never be bullied into asking or NOT asking any question.

If Beck were truly “bucking the system” – he would have gone the way of Lou Dobbs.

If you want to control the dissent, lead the dissent.”
