Stuart Levine Steven Loren status hearing, Judge Amy J. St. Eve, Thursday, December 1, 2011, Obama Rezko problem

Stuart Levine Steven Loren status hearing, Judge  Amy J. St. Eve, Thursday, December 1, 2011, Obama Rezko problem

“Why did Patrick Fitzgerald and the US Justice Department wait until December 2008 to arrest Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

“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

Tony Rezko has been sentenced to 10.5 years. Rezko was clearly the fall guy. That is why he was prosecuted before Rod Blagojevich, the Governor of Illinois, and kept away from the public and the press. That doesn’t mean that Obama doesn’t have a Rezko problem. Rod Blagojevich and Daniel Frawley have not been sentenced yet and Stuart Levine and Steven Loren have a status hearing next Thursday, December 1, 2011 in the courtroom of  Judge  Amy J. St. Eve.

Michele Bachmann, Thursday, November 5, 2009, Capitol Building, Health Care Bill, Socialist bill, Bachmann fights Pelosi, Michele Bachmann confronts Congress

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann appeared on the Sean Hannity Show on Fox last night, October 30, 2009. She exposed the Health Care Bill as socialist and stated that she will appear on the Capitol Building steps next Thursday, November 5, 2009 at noon to confront Congress to stop passage of this ruinous bill. Watch the interview

From ABC 5 News, October 30, 2009.

“Bachmann Fighting Against Democratic Health Care Bill”

“Many Republican members of congress are back in their districts for the weekend trying to advocate against the House’s health care plan, and that movement in Minnesota is being led by Michele Bachmann.

While House Democrats rally around a health care bill they say will cover almost all Americans and lower costs, Republican Michele Bachmann sees it much differently.

“I would prefer to see true health care reform, but unfortunately the bill that will come up next week that we will vote on is the government takeover of cradle to grave socialist health care. This is a mammoth, ugly bill that’s coming forward,” said Bachmann.”

“Bachmann calls the bill by a different name. “There will be maybe 72 hours for the general public to read the bill. And this is going to change our lives forever. This is the crown jewel of socialism,” said Bachmann.

Bachmann’s alternative revolves around a free-market approach, involving a change in the federal tax code. Each individual would own their health care, not government and not their employers.”

Michele Bachmann, Sean Hannity, Health care bill, October 30, 2009, Washington DC, Thursday, November 5, 2009, Capitol building steps, Nancy Pelosi confronted

I just listened to congresswoman Michele Bachmann of Minnesota explain the Health Care Bill on the Sean Hannity Show on Fox. As usual she was articulate, well informed and to the point about the lies being told to the American public.

Michele Bachmann announced that she will be on the steps of the Capitol Building in Washington DC on Thursday, November 5, 2009 at noon to confront Nancy Pelosi and other members of Congress. She is asking for other concerned Americans to come to Washington DC next week to protest this socialist bill being forced on the American public. She stated that many Democrats are on the fence and need to hear from their constituents.

I have been listening to congresswoman Michele Bachmann for several months and like congressman Joe Wilson, she is impressive, refreshing and the real deal. Let’s back her on this initiative 100%.

I am asking those reading this blog to help spread this story and let Michele Bachmann know that we support her and efforts to save this country. Let other congressmen know that we do not want this Health Care Bill and that we want more congressmen like Bachmann and Wilson.

I have already sent Michele Bachmann an email to offer my assistance.

Tea Party Express II, Thursday, October 29, 2009, Redding CA, Medford OR, Northern California, Southern Oregon, Huge crowds, CNN coverage

The Tea Party Express II will be in one of my favorite parts of the country today, Northern California and Southern Oregon. Redding, CA and Medford, OR will be the site of Tea Party protests today, October 29, 2009.

Here are some reports from recent Tea Party Express II protests in California and Nevada.

WOW! Huge crowd turns out in Walnut Creek, CA – Breaking News

Hello from Walnut Creek, CA – a community in the East Bay of the San Francisco metropolitan area. So in the sea of liberalism stood an island of patriotic Americans rallying together today united in the effort to advance the tea party movement.”
“There’s also a crucial Congressional Special Election coming up here on November 3rd which features David Harmer (a Republican who strongly opposes government-run healthcare) up against California Lieutenant Governor, John Garamendi (a Democrat who is a big advocate of government-run healthcare and the Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda of big government, bailouts, higher taxes and out-of-control spending).

Harmer spoke at this evening’s rally to an enthusiastic crowd – perhaps the most enthusiastic crowd we’ve had since the kickoff event in San Diego, CA. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy – we sure enjoyed the great people of Walnut Creek:”

CNN Reports on the Tea Party Express

CNN’s Jon King interviewed Tea Party Express Vice Chair, Mark Williams, about the “Tea Party Express II: Countdown to Judgment Day.”

A relatively fair interview with CNN’s King asking questions and allowing the Tea Party Express’s Mark Williams to respond. There’s some good stuff in this interview, friends!”

Rod Blagojevich indictment, March 31, 2009, Thursday, April 2, 2009, Patrick Fitzgerald, Robert Blagojevich, Patricia Blagojevich, Friends of Blagojevich, federal wiretaps, FBI, Grand jury convenes

The Chicago Tribune reported on March 31, 2009:

“Rod Blagojevich: Indictment could bring more defendants
Former governor’s brother, wife and campaign committee, as well as lobbyist Lon Monk, are possible targets

By John Chase and Jeff Coen | Tribune reporters
March 31, 2009

With a deadline fast approaching for federal prosecutors to file an indictment against former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, all eyes will be on the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse this week.

Sources with knowledge of the probe have said the indictment could be filed as soon as Thursday. That is the last scheduled day for the grand jury investigating the former governor to meet before an April 7 deadline for filing the indictment.

The grand jury has convened on Thursdays throughout the lengthy federal investigation.

The indictment is expected to include more details about the allegations against Blagojevich and his former chief of staff John Harris regarding the corruption charges leveled against them in December. It also could include more defendants.

Known targets include Blagojevich’s brother, Robert, who headed the former governor’s campaign fund; Lon Monk, Blagojevich’s onetime best friend and former chief of staff; Blagojevich’s wife, Patricia; and Friends of Blagojevich, the ex-governor’s campaign committee.”

Blagojevich impeachment trial, Thursday, January 29, 2009, Ellis closing argument, Rod Blagojevich closing arguments, Illinois Senate, Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn, Blagojevich secret recordings, Springfield IL

Governor Rod Blagjevich is giving his closing arguments as I write
this. He is attempting to paint a picture of his concern for citizens
and obtaining flu shots when in fact he used his position as
governor to gain power and money for himself.

From the Chicago Tribune website, January 29, 2009

“Closing arguments under way at Blagojevich’s impeachment trial
10:56 a.m. Blagojevich won’t stick around; Quinn in the wings

Blagojevich will leave the Senate and the statehouse immediately
after his closing argument to return home on a state aircraft,
to avoid any “plane issues,” spokesman Lucio Guerrero said. State
lawmakers and Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn have said Blagojevich is not
entitled to state transporation home if he is convicted and
removed before he leaves.

Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn is at the statehouse. Quinn came own on a
state plane with Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke, who will swear
him in if he becomes governor. His two sons will also be here.

10:48 a.m. Ellis finishes, Blagojevich next

At 10:40 a.m., Ellis turned to Blagojevich’s public denouncements
of the impeachment trial as a kangaroo court that was rigged with
“sham” rules.

“These rules are even-handed and fair. They apply evenly to both
sides,” Ellis said. But he said Blagojevich was “mischaracterizing
these rules.”

“He claimed the fix in. That’s not what I have seen. I have seen a
body that has … done honor to this process and honor to this
constitution,” Ellis said. “We believe we have more that adequately
proved an abuse of power.”

Ellis said senators did not have to be satisfied that Blagojevich
did all the things he is accused of in the 13-count article of
impeachment. They only have to find a “pattern of abuse,” however
many counts that includes, Ellis said.

“The people of this state deserve so much better,” Ellis said in a
quiet voice. “Governor Blagojevich should be removed from office.”

With that Ellis finished the first part of his closing argument. He
is allowed another 30 minutes after Blagojevich speaks.

10:40 a.m. Ellis blasts Blagojevich circumventing lawmakers to
expand health care

Ellis said 60 conversations were recorded between the governor’s
home and his campaign office.

“Sixty conversations. All in which the governor puts his own interests
first,” Ellis said. “Is that not an abuse of power, right there?”

Halfway through his initial hour, Ellis turned to connections between
the Blagojevich adminsitration and convicted fundraiser Tony Rezko.
In one example, Ali Ata, executive director of the Illinois Finance
Authority, told a federal court that he bought his position at the
state with two large contributions to Blagojevich, Ellis said.

The governor also circumvented the authority of the state legislature
in pushing forward a state health care plan with getting lawmaker
approval, the House prosecutor said.

“Whether or not you belive that expanding FamilyCare is a good idea,”
Ellis said. “The point is not the ends, it’s the means.”

“We are a country of laws, and everybody, including the governor, must
obey them,” Ellis said.

10:29 a.m. Blagojevich arrives at capitol

Gov. Rod Blagojevich has arrived at the statehouse for closing
arguments in his Senate impeachment trial.

10:28 a.m. Ellis plays Blagojevich secret recordings

Ellis told senators that Blagojevich wanted to raise $2.5 million by
year’s end and engaged in three schemes of coercion.

One involved an $8 million grant to Children’s Memorial Hospital
that he wanted to result in a $50,000 campaign contribution.

“He even contemplated breaking his commitment, holding back the money,”
Ellis said.

Another involved a $1.8 billion tollway project that Blagojevich
allegedly wanted to fetch a $500,000 campaign contribution.

“If they don’t perform, eff ‘em,” Ellis quoted Blagojevich as saying.

The third scheme was a plan to trade his signature on horse racing
impact fee bill for a campaign contribution from a horse track owner.

Ellis played a series of FBI recordings of Blagojevich trying to make
sure funds were raised from the horsetrack owner before a new law
banning contributions with people doing business with the state took
effect on Jan. 1. The track owner, Johnny Johnston, was good for the
donation, the governor’s aides told him.

“But clearly before the end of the year, right?” Blagojevich’s voice
could be heard saying. His former chief of staff, Lon Monk, told the
track owner the timing of the donation could cause “skittishness” if
made too late. “Good,” the governor replied in the intercepted cell
phone conversation.

The last tape Ellis played was between Monk and Blagojevich in which
Ellis said Monk told the governor he could apply some pressure to
secure a political donation from the racetrack owner before the
governor signed a bill that would benefit him.

“Give John Johnston a call,” Monk urged. “It’s a two-minute
conversation.”

“I’d be happy to do it,” the governor responded.

“I think it’s better if you do it — just from a pressure point of
view,” Monk said.

“Yeah. Good.” Blagojevich said.

“I’m telling you he’s gonna be good for it,” Monk said later in the
conversation. “I got in his face.”

“Good,” the governor said. “A whole year,” he lamented about the
delay in receiving the contribution.

10:16 a.m. Ellis walks senators through U.S. Senate seat, Tribune
shakedown allegations

Prosecutor David Ellis began taking senators through the impeachment
allegations, gesturing behind him to transcripts of secretly-recorded
conversation excerpts on poster board.

The U.S. Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama was a
“golden thing,” Ellis quoted Blagojevich as saying.

“’It’s an effing valuable thing. You just don’t give it away for
nothing,'” Ellis said, quoting from federal transcripts. “The governor
wanted to make a trade.”

Ellis talked about federal allegations that Blagojevich tried to
pressure Tribune Co.

“The evidence clearly showed that the governor tried to put a price
tag on financial assistance to the Tribune company,” Ellis said. He
had 15 conversations with former chief of staff John Harris in a
month, repeatedly directing Harris to talk to high-ranking Tribune
Company executives, Ellis said. Before helping with public financing
for the company’s sale of the Chicago Cubs, he wanted the company to
fire editorial board members at the Chicago Tribune who were critical
of him.

There would be no money from the state to help with the sale of the
Chicago Cubs “unless those editorial board members are fired,” Ellis
said.

“The governor new what he was doing was harmful,” Ellis said. He
agreed what Harris was doing should be done in person, not on the
phone.

“Don’t push too hard, but you know what you gotta do, right?'”

It was all “an abuse of power,” Ellis said.
