Blagojevich trial, Obama, Breaking news, Blagojevich defense links Obama to Joseph Aramanda corruption

From the Chicago Tribune June 16, 2010.

“Blago defense tries to link kickback to Obama contribution”

The defense for Rod Blagojevich tried today to link money from a kickback scheme to President Barack Obama.

Joseph Aramanda, a business associate of insider Antoin “Tony” Rezko, acknowledged he donated $10,000 to Obama’s campaign when he ran for the U.S. Senate in 2004. Aramanda said he did so at Rezko’s request.

Huffington Post, Obama, Obama campaign paid Huffington Post $ 55354 in 2008

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

 

In 2008, the Obama Campaign used a great deal of money from undocumented donors, a legion of paid bloggers, internet thugs and a complicit press to spin their Orwellian lies. The Obama Campaign paid The Huffington Post $ 55,354 in 2008. That of course is what was reported to the FEC and  is the tip of the iceberg. I have heard Obama refer to The Huffington Post on several occasions. The last time was the last straw. The Citizen Wells blog has written about The Huffington Post acting as an arm of the Obama camp to smear opposition to Obama. You can expect more.

Listen to the following Obama speech, if you can stomach it. He mentions The Huffington Post at around 1 minute 57 seconds. The speech is cleverly (in the wicked sense) written. It mixes truths, half truths and lies.

From Citizen Wells December 4, 2009.

“Right on cue, The Huffington Post, one of the paid arms of the Obama camp, has come to Obama’s rescue. The American people are increasingly unhappy with the Obama Administration and are certainly more open to learning the truth about him. Several weeks ago Lou Dobbs asked why doesn’t Obama produce a legitimate birth certificate. Now, in a recent interview, Sarah Palin has stated that she believes Obama’s birth certificate being questioned is fair game. The Obama camp Orwellian attacks are predictable as explained in this Citizen Wells article

“Sarah Palin Goes ‘Birther’: Obama Birth Certificate ‘A Fair Question’”

“Sarah Palin declared on Thursday that the legitimacy of President Obama’s birth certificate is “rightfully” an issue with the American public, and that it is “fair game” for politicians to question Obama’s citizenship.”

“FactCheck.org has done the most comprehensive debunking of the various conspiracy theories related to Obama’s citizenship. Here is their bottom line:””

“Why does The Huffington Post do the bidding of the Obama camp?

Here is one of the reasons.

Remember, the monetary payments below are only from Obama For America and those reported to the FEC. Based on the services provided by The Huffington Post to the Obama camp, the actual total paid should be significantly higher.”

Blagojevich trial, May 5, 2010, Obama, Stuart Levine, William Cellini, Illinois Gaming Board

From the recent motion to subpoena Barack Obama from the Blagojevich defense team we know this.
“22. However, the defense has a good faith belief that Mr. Rezko, President Obama’s
former friend, fund-raiser, and neighbor told the FBI and the United States Attorneys
a different story about President Obama. In a recent in camera proceeding, the
government tendered a three paragraph letter indicating that Rezko “has stated
in interviews with the government that he engaged in election law violations by
personally contributing a large sum of cash to the campaign of a public official
who is not Rod Blagojevich. … Further, the public official denies being aware of
cash contributions to his campaign by Rezko or others and denies having
conversations with Rezko related to cash contributions. … Rezko has also stated
in interviews with the government that he believed he transmitted a quid pro quo
offer from a lobbyist to the public official, whereby the lobbyist would hold a
fundraiser for the official in exchange for favorable official action, but that the
public official rejected the offer. The public official denies any such
conversation. In addition, Rezko has stated to the government that he and the
public official had certain conversations about gaming legislation and
administration, which the public official denies having had.”10

10 The defense has a good faith belief that this public official is Barack Obama. See, “Obama on Rezko deal: It
was a mistake”, Dave McKinney, Chris Fusco, and Mark Brown, Chicago Sun Times, November 5, 2006. Senator
Barack Obama was asked: “Did Rezko or his companies ever solicit your support on any matter involving state or
federal government? Did Al Johnson, who was trying to get a casino license along with Tony Rezko, or Rezko
himself ever discuss casino matters with you?” Senator Obama answered: “No, I have never been asked to do
anything to advance his business interest. In 1999, when I was a State Senator, I opposed legislation to bring a
casino to Rosemont and allow casino gambling at docked riverboats which news reports said Al Johnson and Tony
Rezko were interested in being part of. I never discussed a casino license with either of them. I was a vocal
opponent of the legislation.” Obama’s involvement with Tony Rezko and this legislation coincides with the
three paragraph summary the government has provided to the defense referenced above.”

Obama subpoena redacted portions

Here is just a snippet of insight into Obama’s close connections to corruption figures tied to the gaming industry. Of course you remenber that Obama was a IL senator in 1999. What else was Obama doing in 1999? What else was Stuart Levine doing in 1999?

The names highlighted were done so by me.

“MINUTES OF REGULAR MEETING
ILLINOIS GAMING BOARD
OCTOBER 26, 1999
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS”

“The Illinois Gaming Board (“Board”) held its Regular Meeting on October 26, 1999 in the auditorium on the 5th floor of
the State of Illinois Building, Chicago, Illinois, pursuant to the Illinois Open Meetings Act, 5 ILCS 120.
The following Board Members were present: Robert F. Vickrey, Chairman; and Members Gregory C. Jones, Joseph A.
Lamendella, Stuart P. Levine and Staci M. Yandle.”

“ALTON GAMING COMPANY (“Alton”) – Don Malloy, representing Alton, requested approval of its owner’s license.
Administrator Acosta stated that there are no outstanding concerns with AGC and recommended approval to the Board.
Member Levine moved
that the Board renew the owner’s license of Alton Gaming Company for a period of 1 year.
The license is to expire in October 2000.
In renewing the license, the Board formally designates the following as key persons of the licensee:

Obama, Philadelphia Health Care Speech, Three Democrat congressmen missing, Murphy, Carney, Holden, Americans against ObamaCare

Obama, Philadelphia Health Care Speech, Three Democrat congressmen missing

From Americans For Prosperity

How can you tell when a president is in trouble on a big issue? 

When politicians of his own party avoid appearing with him when he’s in their home area.

Take yesterday. President Obama appeared in the Philadelphia suburbs to once again campaign for his health care takeover.  He delivered the usual falsehoods – for example, Fox News reported that the president claimed $868 billion in savings that is simply a made-up number. He promised that his plan will not cost small businesses more, when everyone knows costs will skyrocket on small businesses.

And three Democrat congressmen from the Philly area – Murphy, Carney and Holden – did not appear with the president from their own party. 

These three Democrats did not stand beside President Obama on their home turf, despite the fact that Obama carried Pennsylvania and their region in the 2008 election. 

They know what we know: The American people have turned against this corrupt Washington health care takeover. The polls clearly show it, with every reputable poll showing strong majorities against the legislation. These congressmen have their ears to the ground in their districts, and they hear the powerful grassroots anger. It’s anger against the president’s arrogance in continuing to push a health care takeover while ignoring job losses and a still-faltering economy, despite the fact that the American people have clearly said, “Keep Your Hands Off My Health Care.”

We’re just days away from a crucial vote in the House of Representatives. Despite all the big talk from Speaker Pelosi and the liberals, they STILL DO NOT HAVE THE VOTES to pass their health care takeover.

Tomorrow night, Wednesday, at 8 p.m. ET we’re holding a national tele-town hall meeting with the 3rd ranking Republican in the House and a leading free-market champion – Congressman Mike Pence. I hope you’ll join us. Call (888) 356-3090 Ext.14326#.

We’ll brief you on key undecided House members, detail the likely timeline to be used by Speaker Pelosi, and Congressman Pence will walk through conservative alternatives along with his exchanges in recent weeks with President Obama. 

But, there’s more we must do.

On March 16, we’re holding the “Honk Against the Health Care Takeover” event. Here’s what we’re asking you to do. At 12 Noon your time on March 16, drive to your member of Congress’s district office and join a car caravan there, circling your representative’s office while honking against the health care takeover.

Just CLICK HERE for more information and to let us know you’re on board. You’ll be able to print off your very own “Honk Against the Health Care Takeover” sign for your car when you register. Sign up tomorrow, March 10, to receive a free bumper sticker in the mail before March 16.

In addition, you can sign up to be a car caravan leader. You can pick a parking lot near your Congressman’s office and let folks know you will be there to lead them over to the district office. It will be fun to meet fellow grassroots activists and to go over in a caravan to send your message.

Here’s the bottom line. The president is in the midst of his final all-out push for his health care takeover. Yes, his campaign is dishonest and over-the-top. But, to their credit they are refusing to quit this fight. So, we’ve got to beat them in these final days before the House vote.

They’ve put everything on the line for their ideology, as flawed as it is. 

The question for us is:  will we do the same for our values, our freedoms and our nation?

Knowing what I know about Americans like us, I believe the answer will be a resounding YES. “

John Brennan, Obama, Terrorism policies, Unholy alliance?, Obama passport, Brennan firm cauterized Obama’s passport info, John Brennan’s stance on terrorism documented

The following is a snippet of an upcoming article about John Brennan, Obama, their unholy alliance and their stance on terrorism. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

From the Washington Times, march 20, 2008.

“Obama passport files violated; 2 workers at State fired; 1 rebuked”

“Two State Department employees were fired recently and a third disciplined for improperly accessing electronic personal data on Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, Bush administration officials said today.
The officials, all contract workers, used their authorized computer network access to look up files within the department’s consular affairs section, which processes and stores passport information, and read Mr. Obama’s passport application and other records, in violation of department privacy rules, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.”

“Passport application data includes such details as date and place of birth, e-mail address, mailing address, Social Security number, former names and travel plans. Mr. Obama was born in Honolulu in 1961 to a Kenyan father and American mother. He lived in Jakarta, Indonesia, from age six to 10.”

From Fox News, March 21, 2008.

“The State Department confirmed late Friday that the contractors who gained improper access to Barack Obama’s passport files worked for two Virginia-based companies, after Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice promised a full investigation into breaches that affected all three presidential candidates.”

“The other company was identified as The Analysis Corporation.”

At a time when few people knew much about the past of Barack Obama, a commenter on the Citizen Wells blog, Katherine, on March 21, 2008, wrote the following.

“Obama has a dual citizenship with Kenya. His passport was breached today by inquiring minds because Obama is an anti-Israel pro-pan-arabism Islamic-socialist who has ties to marxist Libyan president Muammar al Gadaffi, Syrian tycoon Antoin Rezko, Saudi Arabian sheikhs, and Rezko’s “close friend” 3.5 million money pal Auchi, the one who gave Obama fundraiser money: Iraqi billionaire global arms dealer Nadhmi Auchi, was Baathist best friends with Saddam Hussein, and the main financial backer for Saddam’s Iraqi-Saudi oil pipeline, and who stood trial with Saddam in 1959 for conspiring to assassinate Iraqi President Qasim, (Saddam even killed Auchi’s brother, but they remained best friends), also marxist Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega is on the frontline supporting Obama for the revolution of the change, and then there’s hardcore anti-Israel, pro-Palestine PLO enforcer Rashid Khalidi, (Obama was on Khalidi’s Woods Fund). Obama was a member of the Woods Fund with communist domestic terrorist Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground who bombed the Pentagon, the US Capital, among other things, and their organization raised money for anti-Israel programs, and also AAAN, for Arabs, and then there’s especially Kenya… where in August of 2007 Obama went to support his E. Germany communist educated cousin Raila Odinga for Kenyan presidential election who claims, coincidentally, to also be a Christian yet who signed NAMLEF and other pacts with radical Muslims who set churches filled with Christians on fire, and macheted them in the streets, causing a political and religious mini-civil war over the MuO.
Sorry folks, I studied all of Obama’s mentors, buddies, political affiliations, organizational memberships, and all of his *hard-core militant Muslim* family members, like his brother Abongo “Roy” Odinga who hates America, and their communist grandfather who ran with Russia and hated America, not to mention his socialist connection to his profound childhood mentor Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Communist Party, CPUSA, and…well, we know Pastor Wright, Jesse Jackson, Jesse Jackson JR, Al Sharpton, and Nation of Islam minister Louis Farrakhan….and they have a *few* issues with america, white people, and jews—> so simply reverse it, and you’ll see they care about: Africa, Blacks, and Muslims, which can be corroborated by things they have said along with their affiliations.
*Don’t forget that Obama’s 2004 U.S. Senate political opponent, Republican Alan Keyes, accused Obama of being a “hard-core academic Marxist.”
-Marxist Nicaraguan President’s endorsement is for Obama, and he says: “It’s not to say that there is already a revolution under way in the U.S.; but yes, they [supporters of Barack Obama] are laying the foundations for a revolutionary change”
*Obama’s endorsement by Black Panthers. Check out their politics, ahem. Well, they are Marxist, of course.
__Militant Islam is the new Communism.__
**Socialism must be accompsihed through proletariat exchange, a revolution, and if you really see it, easily, you will see that the west, america, white people–rich white people–are the enemy. Obama titled his book “Audacity of Hope” after Pastor Wright’s sermon about the need to destroy capitalism and the middle-class at the hands of rich white america and the west. Race OVERRULES religion. POLITICS overrule race and religion: it’s about the change.
Pan-Arabism and Islamic-Socialism spans globally, it embraces not just governments as such but also individuals. All-black-brown people who are against the bourgeoise…rich-white, capitalist, american, western power:”

I repeat, this was written on March 21, 2008.

 

John Brennan has been in the news constantly, recently, regarding his and the Obama Administration’s stance on terrorism. There is much more to this unholy alliance.

Obama, White House party crashers, Old photo, Obama standing with Tareq and Michaele Salahi, Secret Service scapegoats, Social Secretary Desiree Rogers

I received the following photo in an email this morning of White House party crashers, Tareq and Michaele Salahi posing with Barack Obama several years ago:
Recognize anyone in this photo?


 
                
 
See the guy in the white suit?
See the blond in the white dress?
See the guy in the middle? 
 
This picture was taken a few years ago and it seems Obama has known these two phony’s for awhile now, or at least when he was a Senator.
 
They’re getting all this press now as “the party crashers” and the Secret Service is taking the heat …
 
Funny how this has not come out in the press and, it’s no wonder the White House doesn’t want the Social Secretary, Desiree Rogers, to testify.  She knows that the Secret Service is not responsible even though they took the fall and three guys were put on leave!
 There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!
                      This is your chance to make a difference.
 
It is a real picture.  Check this out in Snopes.com — http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/photos/crashers.asp
