President Obama remains unscathed by the legal system has sworn to uphold, yet again.  Whether Obama has played by the rules in his career certainly remains suspect.

Putting aside all the legal wrangling and avoidance of showing an actual birth certificate to put an end to all the birther questions; this time the Chicago Judge in the Blagojevich trial has denied a defense request to gain access to the FBI report summarizing then President-Elect Obama’s 2008 interview with federal investigators.

Defense lawyers argued in a filing last week that the government minimized Obama’s knowledge of the then-Governor’s attempts to horsetrade for the Senate seat appointment. They said that testimony by government witness John Harris contradicted that portrayal by federal prosecutors.

Harris testified last week that Blagojevich believed Obama knew about Blagojevich’s request for a presidential cabinet appointment in exchange for appointing Valerie Jarrett to the Senate seat. http://blogs.suntimes.com/blago/2010/06/judge_to_blagojevich_lawyers_y.html

A government witness testifies that Obama knew about Blagojevich’s request, and yet his FBI interview file will remain closed.  No one has followed the Blago,Rezko, Obama trail better than Citizen Wells. http://citizenwells.com/2010/06/28/blagojevich-trial-alexi-giannoulias-subpoena-giannoulias-ties-to-obama-chicago-corruption-giannoulias-introduced-balanoff-to-jarrett/

Alexi Giannoulias, a US Senate candidate from Illinois, has been subpoenaed for the Rod Blagojevich trial. Giannoulias set up a meeting between Valerie Jarrett and Tom Balanoff, head of SEIU in Illinois. But there is much more about Alexi Giannoulias that is of interest to anyone following Chicago corruption.

“The close association of Obama with a man who seems clearly to be involved in some shady deals with convicted criminals is yet another example of questionable judgment at best and typical dirty Chicago politics at worst. I wonder if Giannoulias will turn out to be the next in Obama’s never-ending series of “He’s not the man I knew”.”

Twisting the story of Obama’s involvement is John Kas from the Chicago Tribune who claims he has a letter personally addressed from the President to Rezko. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/ct-met-kass-0627-20100627,0,805898.column

It’s a letter with your name on it in big capital letters, PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA.

It’s postmarked June 16, 2010, and was mailed from Richmond, Va., with a 44-cent stamp. And, it’s printed in soy ink on recycled paper, so it’s eco-friendly.

But the fascinating part is whom the letter from PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA is addressed to:

Tony Rezko.

Yes, that Tony Rezko.

I’m not joking. This is a real letter.

Remember Tony? The “That’s not the Tony Rezko I knew” Tony? Your personal real estate fairy who helped you buy that dream house in Kenwood? The Tony of your “boneheaded” move? Yeah, that guy.

Your letter was sent to one of Rezko’s old business addresses in Chicago, and I got to take a look at it. I promised not to reveal the address if we could take a picture of it.

Mr. President, the first thing I thought was, “What would Barack want us to do with this letter?”

And the second thing I thought of was that I’d better write about it before Rahm sends the “Men in Black” to stun me with a ray gun that erases all memory.

Federal Law prohibits opening someone else’s mail.  What’s in the letter?  And why now in the midst of the Blago trial would Obama choose to correspond with Rezko?  Will Kas open the letter and take the consequences in the interest of freedom of the press?

Then there is the U.S Government Mole,  Bernard Barton, Jr. who in In 2000, moved to Chicago, changed his name to John Thomas and went undercover for the U.S. Attorney in Chicago in some sort of a deal to avoid jail time for federal business fraud relating to real estate investment.

Barton wore an undercover wire, though claimed he did not record Blago and Obama.  He never testified at the trial for Rezko. Perhaps for or against Blago?  http://bigjournalism.com/acary/2010/05/19/tony-rezko-barack-obama-the-fbi-mole-and-the-chicago-msm/

Avoiding disclosure of FBI records and most other records, is nothing new to the Obama family.

In response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the FBI has formally acknowledged a file existed on President Barack Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Armour Dunham, that was destroyed May 1, 1997. The FBI previously released some 600 pages of the FBI file of Frank Marshall Davis, the Chicago-based journalist and poet who as a member of the Communist Party USA retired in Hawaii and befriended Dunham. http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=139805.

In 1997, the year the FBI destroyed his father’s files, Obama was still hanging out with Bill Ayers

Ayers will be joined by Sen. Barack Obama, Senior Lecturer in the Law School, who is working to combat legislation that would put more juvenile offenders into the adult system… http://chronicle.uchicago.edu/971106/justice.shtml

FBI files from 1976, recently made public under the Freedom of Information Act, confirm the connections between Weatherman, Havana, and Moscow. Weatherman leaders … traveled illegally to Havana … to engage in terrorist training. There, camps set up by Soviet KGB Colonel Vadim Kotchergine were educating Westerners both in Marxist philosophy and urban warfare. http://frontpage.americandaughter.com/?tag=william-ayers

 On May 21, 1970 an audiotape recorded by Dohrn announced a declaration of war on the United States.

Hello. This is Bernardine Dohrn.

I’m going to read A DECLARATION OF A STATE OF WAR.

This is the first communication from the Weatherman underground.

All over the world, people fighting Amerikan imperialism look to Amerika’s youth to use our strategic position behind enemy lines to join forces in the destruction of the empire.

Black people have been fighting almost alone for years. We’ve known that our job is to lead white kids to armed revolution…. Tens of thousands have learned that protest and marches don’t do it. Revolutionary violence is the only way.

Are Ayers and Dorn getting their way?  More Americans are shot in Chicago than in Iraq.   There have been 209 homicides so far in 2010, based on RedEye statistics. http://homicides.redeyechicago.com/ 39 U.S. Soldiers have died in Iraq in 2010. http://www.icasualties.org/Iraq/Fatalities.aspx  Ayers and Dorn remain free on an FBI technicality, a blunder in their prosecution.

Need another example of dodging the FBI?  Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller is forwarding claims that an “FBI document dump” related to the agency’s 2007 investigation into ACORN workers in Missouri is evidence that ACORN requires a “national criminal investigation” which is being halted by the Obama administration. http://mediamatters.org/blog/201006100047  It was originally halted by Bush pending further investigation.

Obama for all his hope and change, may end up getting more than a run for his money defending his reputation in this case; even without offering testimony, or having any of his FBI interviews or files released. 

It doesn’t take the FBI for the American people to see where President Obama is taking America.  Socialism, anti-Americanism, ACORN, Ayers, Khalidi, Wright, Rezko, Blago….might as well throw in the insane bowing to Kings while we’re at it.   Oh wait, them there Kings have oil drilling, while we sit on the world’s largest shale petroleum reserve in the world doing nothing. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/06/28/oils-dirty-little-secret-the-land-grab-act/.  Say nothing of the moratorium in the Gulf.

Oil Spill. Getty Images.

The Deepwater Horizon Oil spill or leak as BP calls it, is a disaster of epic proportion.  The response by the EPA is equally to blame in the approval of two chemical dispersants by BP, and it’s reliance soley on BP to clean it up and provide water samples.

Saturday May 15, 2010-“Based on the scientific analysis of the EPA and NOAA and review by the National Response Team, it has been determined that the use of dispersants at the subsea source is the prudent and responsible action to take along with other tactics including surface dispersant, skimming and controlled burns.” http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/go/doc/2931/551271/

We warned in this post, https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/16/deepwater-horizon-oil-spill-response/ that the use of chemical dispersants, is not without it’s own hazards.  BP asked, and got approval from the EPA to use COREXIT, manufactured by Nalco Company, Illinois. http://www.nalco.com/

COREXIT EC 9500 A http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/posted/2931/Corexit_EC9500A_MSDS.539287.pdf 

COREXIT 9527  C  http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/posted/2931/Corexit_EC9527A_MSDS.539295.pdf 

COREXIT products clearly state that they are not to be used on surface water and are toxic to wildlife. And that, “It is unknown if dispersed oil has toxic implications to the human population because bioaccumulation through the food chain has not been evaluated.”  http://www.epa.gov/bpspill/dispersants.html#q3 

It was not prudent and responsible to approve these particular products, and now in a reverse course, EPA is revoking its decision.

The Environmental Protection Agency informed BP officials late Wednesday that the company has 24 hours to choose a less-toxic form of chemical dispersants to break up its oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, according to government sources familiar with the decision, and must apply the new form of dispersants within 72 hours of submitting the list of alternatives.

The move is significant, because it suggests federal officials are now concerned that the unprecedented use of chemical dispersants could pose a significant threat to the Gulf of Mexico’s marine life. BP has been using two forms of dispersants, Corexit 9500A and Corexit 9527A, and so far has applied 600,000 gallons on the surface and 55,000 underwater.http://views.washingtonpost.com/climate-change/post-carbon/2010/05/epa_demands_less_toxic_dispersant.html

A significant threat?  Why approve COREXIT in the first place?  Maybe because Nalco Company received nearly two million dollars in government contracts this year alone. http://www.governmentcontractswon.com/department/defense/ondeo_nalco_company_004962403.asp?yr=09

J. Erik Fyrwald is the Chairman and CEO of NALCO and among other things, “…serves as a Director of Eli Lilly and Company, the Society of Chemical Industry, the American Chemistry Council and is a Trustee of the Field Museum of Chicago.”  http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=182822&p=irol-govBio&ID=176133 More of his relationships via http://www.muckety.com/J-Erik-Fyrwald/8859.muckety shows he is also a Director of The Eexecutives Club of Chicago.- http://www.executivesclub.org/ where they are launching The Global Leadership Institute of Chicago—a legacy that endows the capacity to make change. 

Capacity to make change? Change you can believe in?

Let me think, who else is from Chicago that I can think of?  Blagojevich, Wright, Ayers, President Obama. The biggest oil spill in the world has taken place under Obama’s reign and it took him days to hold a conference with administration officials and eleven days to go see for himself. http://seminal.firedoglake.com/diary/45025

Keeping in good graces in the eye of  the government and the public, Nalco issued this statement on EPA Analysis of Sub-surface Dispersant Use,  http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=182822&p=irol-newsArticle_pf&ID=1429558&highlight=NAPERVILLE, Ill.,

May 20, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) –Nalco (NYSE:NLC) today issued the following statement:We are gratified that the EPA has acknowledged that the use of Nalco’s dispersants has been effective and has had no undue impact on the marine environment.  As the agency noted on its website today: “Toxicity data does not indicate any significant affects on aquatic life. Moreover, decreased size of the oil droplets is a good indication that, so far, the dispersant is effective.”

The results can be found at http://www.epa.gov/bpspill/ .  To date, approximately 600,000 gallons of dispersant has been used on the surface and approximately 55,000 gallons of dispersant has been used subsurface, at the source of the spill. 

Do you smell something fishy?

Nalco claims the products are working just fine with no hazards, yet the EPA is revoking the use of COREXIT?  Yep.  It boils down to the fact that the government is not happy with BP.  In a Letter From Secretary Napolitano and EPA Administrator Jackson to BP CEO Tony Hayward (PDF) they all but accuse BP of adulterating water samples to justify that COREXIT and the sucking up gadget is having a positive effect of the spill. 

WHY ISN’T THE EPA TAKING IT’S OWN WATER SAMPLES? 

Friday, May 21, 2010 11 a.m. CDT. U.S. Coast Guard Incident Commander Capt. Steven Poulin, U.S. Coast Guard Deputy Incident Commander Capt. Bill Drelling, and BP Incident Commander Keith Seilham of  The Deepwater Horizon Response Unified Incident Command, Mobile, Ala., are scheduled to hold a press briefing about ongoing response operations along the Mississippi, Alabama and Florida coasts.  http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/go/doc/2931/557791/  I got tired of listening to the music and hung up after the delayed start, but why wouldn’t the EPA be involved as well?

The forecast where the oil is heading can be viewed at http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/posted/2931/os_forecast_20100523_1800CDT_20100520_1900CDT_rs.557859.pdf  Too bad no one is mapping where the dispersants have been administered.  In an effort to have more government oversight before a catastrophe, about a week ago The Department of the Interior released this:

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar today announced a set of reforms that will provide federal inspectors more tools, more resources, more independence, and greater authority to enforce laws and regulations that apply to oil and gas companies operating on the Outer Continental Shelf. http://www.doi.gov/news/pressreleases/Salazar-Launches-Safety-and-Environmental-Protection-Reforms-to-Toughen-Oversight-of-Offshore-Oil-and-Gas-Operations.cfm //  http://www.mms.gov/

Salazar implies BP and other oil companies want to lose untold amounts of oil and money on purpose.  Gives you that warm fuzzy feeling that more independence will prevent this from happening again.  How about a new set of federal reforms that secure our border?

US President George W. Bush said in an interview Tuesday he was forced to sacrifice free market principles to save the economy from “collapse.”  http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5jyyKrPjYt7VhpS8G8DrRkr18B0hA

Did that shoe really hit Bush in the head for him to make such a statement asks http://flapsblog.com/2008/12/16/did-the-iraqi-journalists-shoe-really-hit-george-w-bush-in-the-head/.  Venezuela’s, Chavez went so far as to applaud the shoe throwing action. 

Students of economics might argue that governments propping up of the economy is socialism, it is another thing to have your president say it out right.

How to solve the problem is not making statements like that in the first place.  It shows our vulnerability, that we are defeated and weak.  That we need to be rescued.  With every last breath, he should have defended that capitalism works and this “abandonment” is a temporary fix, but he didn’t.  Bush it seems, told the truth that America is heading for a North American Union and a New Global Financial Order.     

America could be ready to be pounced upon with Russians heading to Cuba for war games, and the Middle East, Russia, China all have nuclear capability aimed.  http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=081215151217.gl11u87v&show_article=1  Putin blamed the US for the cause of the global financial meltdown in the first place and so did Brown.  You think Russia wants to get even?  Remember The Cuban Missile Crisis?

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown called for a New Global Financial Order that would increase the adoption of trade treaties and increase the role of the International Monetary Fund in offering credit on the same scale as after World War Two.  “Now we have to create the institutions that are relevant not for national or sheltered economies but for global economies with global capital movements and competition.”  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financetopics/financialcrisis/3202056/Gordon-Brown-urges-EU-to-rebuild-global-financial-institutions.html  Brown went further to say, “To make sure that the problems that developed in the financial system, problems that we know started in America, that these problems do not return again.” 

Maybe these problems started with the International Monetary Fund, The United Nations, the World Bank in the first place.  Wouldn’t those in the most powerful of positions have the most to gain?  Who is going to purchase distressed assets?  Russia, China and the Gulf oil states that’s who.  America is for sale. 

Liberals would want us to butt out, Obama wants to throw more money at the problems while Republicans want to end the bailouts.  Is it all one step closer to a North American Union and a One World Order? 

“George, you weren’t forced to do it. You wanted to do it. You want to dissolve the sovereignty of the United States and become part of the one-world government. You did this by choice, George, and we know it!” says Bruce Tyson at http://word.truthintheword.org/archives/2277

Lest we forget, the US Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933. 48 Stat .1,  Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt being bankrupt and insolvent.  H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress session June 5, 1933. http://tucnak.fsv.cuni.cz/~calda/Documents/1930s/EmergBank_1933.html  Roosevelt also issued Executive Order 6102, requiring all private gold be turned in for paper money at face value. 

The Wall Street Journal says, “President-elect Barack Obama’s economic team is considering an economic-stimulus program that will be far larger than the two-year, half-trillion-dollar plan under consideration two weeks ago, according to people familiar with the team’s thinking.” http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122913735606103803.html While all of Obama’s projects are under debate, That One is taking his family on a two week vacation to Hawaii for the Christmas Holiday.  I’d call that irresponsible, and just who is footing the bill? 

Obama, like Bush, has pledged to cooperate with the UN to institute a global tax in support of the Millennium Development Task Force goals. http://www.usasurvival.org/docs/Obama_NWO.pdf  seemly a further erosion of our sovereignty.

 …” the producing economy of people who work for a living simply can no longer generate enough purchasing power for people either to pay their debts or allow them to purchase what is being sold in the marketplace. In turn it is the debt burden and the loss of societal purchasing power that are crashing the stock market. Thus the collapse of the financial economy has started to destroy the producing economy as well.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=9596 David Cook calls our current condition,a “perfect storm,” and that efforts to help the economy are merely, “band-aids on band-aids.  On the extreme, he also believes we are witness to not only the collapse of the U.S. , but more than likely the final crash of Western civilization.

For now, the treasury must be burning up the trees of the rain forest in printing so much money.  Where are all the environmentalists when you need them?   What of complete social destabilization?  What do you do with millions of homeless, out of work people?  Maybe Bush wasn’t so far off base in putting the Army on active duty on US Soil. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/09/30/militarization-of-america-a-state-of-emergency/

At the far end of the spectrum, “Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose.  Garden Plot is the program  to control the populations.  Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments .  FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and will head up all operations.  The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation.” writes http://www.freedomfiles.org/war/fema.htm

What if the rumors of FEMA camps aren’t rumors?  For a potential list of sites go here http://www.rense.com/general17/statebystate.htm.  And for more discussions with video of alleged camps go here  http://www.apfn.org/apfn/camps.htm .

In the Main Stream Media, The SanFranciso Gate  http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/02/04/ED5OUPQJ7.DTL says that, “Beginning in 1999, the government has entered into a series of single-bid contracts with Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) to build detention camps at undisclosed locations within the United States. The government has also contracted with several companies to build thousands of rail cars, some reportedly equipped with shackles, ostensibly to transport detainees. According to diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of “all removable aliens” and “potential terrorists.”

http://justanothercoverup.com/?p=356 goes into further detail why there appears to be a large scale press cover up.  The Press? Yes the press- the same people like the LA Times who refused to release a tape of Obama at a dinner and just this week reported Obama not guilty of selling his Senate seat in the Blagojevich looming scandal.  Last I heard from Patrick Fitzgerald the case was under investigation.

At the very extreme http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-moment13-2008dec13,0,2231803.story “I think that you should hear what my opinion about the Obama election is: that he will not be the next president. I said on my home page in August that if he lost to expect to see the ‘riots’ that 2 Peter 2:13 tells us about. He didn’t lose. But the story is not finished yet. I still think they may begin the riots before Christmas 2008, as I said.”  in reporting about Parowan Prophet aka Leland Freeborn.  He believes, “These riots, according to his prophecy, will encourage the “old, hard-line Soviet guard” to seize the moment and rain down nukes on the United States, killing at least 100 million of us.”  Sure the fuck hope he is wrong.

As David Rockefeller reportedly said in 1973 when he and others formed the Trilateral Commission, “We will have this a Socialist Nation by the end of the year 2000.”  Maybe, he was off by a few years. 

As for writing on Ahrcanum- this site, if the Supremes, Obama and the rest of the world can turn from the cares facing us, so can I.   I am off to pursue the pursuits of happiness.

I pray all of this crap is just a bunch of crap, that America stays strong, and remains home of the free.  Shame, shame on all of us if it is not.

God Bless America.

President-elect Obama recorded a message for the Global Climate Summit, promising  “a new chapter of American leadership on climate change.”
There are so many chapters to Obama, and the book is still being written.  This week, Al Gore, once the ideal running mate, and Obama had a little two hour meet with Biden in tow to talk about climate change.

The author of “An Inconvenient Truth” and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Gore presented his ideas on the environment as one part of helping the nation’s struggling economy recovery.  Note that Gore was not offered a cabinet job.

Obama said they discussed so-called green jobs as a way to boost employment across the country, improve national security by reducing reliance on foreign oil, and reduce energy costs.  Obama said global warming is “not only a problem, but it’s also an opportunity.” http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2008/12/08/national/w120629S86.DTL&type=politics

“We all believe what the scientists have been telling us for years now, that this is a matter of urgency and national security, and it has to be dealt with in a serious way,” said Obama.  Alas, more than 650 scientists from around the world disagree with claims made by the United Nations, Gore and Obama about global warming, “saying that science does not support that climate change is a man made phenomenon, according to a Senate environmental committee’s press blog.http://epw.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Minority.Blogs&ContentRecord_id=2158072e-802a-23ad-45f0-274616db87e6

We have learned more than once that our leaders should take evidence from fact.  There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and the evidence is slipping that we are under a period of global warming.

Up to 6 inches of snow was reported in parts of Louisiana http://www.nola.com/news/index.ssf/2008/12/the_new_orleans_area_is.htm causing havoc.  New England residents are still without power from an ice storm. http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2008/12/13/ice_storm_paralyzes_parts_of_new_england/ and yet we see Obama and Gore chatting up the warmth.  Where is the fireplace setting?

Czech President Vaclav Klaus hit out at the EU climate deal concluded Friday and described global climate issues as “a silly luxury.”  http://www.spacedaily.com/2006/081212141651.tthkmkke.html 

Most folks don’t pollute and do our part, but when it comes down to it a whole industry has been created under the guise of climate change.  “Obama is pushing changes in the way Americans use energy, and produce greenhouse gases, as part of what will be a massive economic stimulus. He called it an opportunity “to re-power America.” http://apnews.myway.com/article/20081214/D952LKP00.html

A General Electric Lamp factory used to show brightly near my home town where they would produce standard light bulbs and employ thousands, now it is shuttered and dark.  The next generation of light bulb is a CFL or compact fluorescent light bulb touting energy savings at a higher cost but longer life.  Sounds good until we realize that these new light bulbs are filled with the toxic substance Mercury, a “highly toxic heavy metal that can cause brain damage and learning disabilities in fetuses and children” and as “one of the most poisonous forms of pollution.” http://www.financialpost.com/story.html?id=aa7796aa-e4a5-4c06- . 

Where are mercury-containing CFLs made? Not in the United States. under strict environmental regulation. CFLs are made in India and China, where environmental standards are virtually non-existent. 

“It’s too bad they’re so capable, experienced, and energetic because the energy and global warming policies that President-elect Obama wants them to pursue are radical, economically disastrous, and pointless,” says http://www.globalwarming.org/node/2827  and says that, “Reality is setting in around the world, as temperatures continue flat and efforts to reduce emissions prove costly and ineffective.  Let’s hope that our elected leaders in Congress see what’s happening before they turn off the lights.”

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe could be our hero in waiting who often butts heads with Gore.  http://newsok.com/green-team-obamas-choices-will-challenge-inhofe/article/3330250   Is it all a big swindle?  Visit http://www.junkscience.com/ who argues that human activity is the chief cause of warming, if it exists at all.

Leading headlines this morning continue to be about the weather with excessive rains in California, sub zero temperatures in the upper Midwest and those still recovering from the massive ice storm in the North East.   The “Icebox of the Nation,” International Falls, temps remained below zero.  http://www.answers.com/topic/international-falls-minnesota

Global Warming, humph. 

Not in the headlines, it would appear that is is going to be a cold day in hell before anyone directly ties Obama to any Obamagate issues. 

Highlighting Chicago politics, the matter continues to show relationships between the about to be impeached Democratic governor and some members of Obama’s inner circle.  His top campaign strategist, David Axelrod, will move to the White House for a senior adviser’s job and lists Blagojevich on his firm’s Web site as one of his clients, when the politician was a candidate for Congress.

The US Supreme Court  on December 15, 2008, the same day
that the Electoral College  met to vote for president and vice
president, has denied WROTNOWSKI, CORT V. BYSIEWICZ, CT SEC. OF STATE case, seeking again to require a verification of Obama’s eligibility to hold office. http://citizenwells.wordpress.com/ on SCOTUS at http://origin.www.supremecourtus.gov/docket/08a469.htm.

Alan Keyes still has a case pending but it looks like we’ve got at least four years of a chilly forecast from an Obama administration. 

Obama has not been officially implicated or charged in anything.

The circus used to come only once a year when I was a kid. As an adult, it shames me that this political circus and financial conundrum is playing out on a daily basis in all of America .  The whole world is shaking its head while the media parades it’s selective stories.

Who raised these leaders who have raped the fabric of our Democracy?  “Wasn’t daddy there to change your underwear?”- from Austin Powers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zN6MxLYB8hM

Having dirty underwear is pretty shitty and lots of politicians are shitting themselves about now.  Guilt by association doesn’t hold up in a court of law, but added up- circumstantial evidence just might.  Patrick Fitzgerald said, “The citizens of Illinois deserve public officials who act solely in the public’s interest, without putting a price tag on government appointments, contracts and decisions.”  I believe he misspoke.  No one in America deserves the hand that has been dealt, not just those in Illinois.

Fitzgerald has been compared to the likes of crime fighter Elliot Ness, and with good reason.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/profiles/3710309/Profile-Patrick-Fitzgerald-a-modern-day-Eliot-Ness.html.  At a time when so many Americans have lost faith in our public representatives and the pervasive lack of accountability, it is inspiring to see a man of true integrity and perseverance is just one of many comments on his blog, From the Desk of Patrick Fitzgerald, Fighting for Truth Justice and The American Way, http://patrickjfitzgerald.blogspot.com/2008/12/king-solomon-sen-patrick-j-fitzgerald-i.html

“He doesn’t shy away from indictments because of political party, holiday season or anything else,” said Cindi Canary, executive director of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform.  http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/10/us/10fitzgerald.html?_r=1&hp

After nearly a trillion dollar bailout of whom we are still not sure, the Senate in D.C., blocked money for the Big 3 Automakers.  The Union said no wage concessions and that put a stop to it right there.  Unless GWB, the guy who is still our current President, has something up his sleeve -expect to see a huge deficit in the GDP and pronto. 

About the same time in NY,  Bernie Madoff  the former chairman of the Nasdaq Stock Market who founded Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC, the closely held market-making firm was running a hedge fund under an alleged ponzi scheme that racked up billions of fraudulent losses.  

Madoff told senior employees of his firm on Wednesday that “it’s all just one big lie” and that it was “basically, a giant Ponzi scheme,” with estimated investor losses of about $50 billion, according to the U.S. Attorney’s criminal complaint against him. Marketwatch reports, “Madoff counted several large hedge fund investment firms as clients, along with some European banks, so if his firm has lost more than $50 billion, the impact could be widespread. ”  Ever generous, Madoff donated $25,ooo to a Democratic Senatorial Campaign, September 08.  http://www.opensecrets.org/indivs/donor_lookup.php?name=Madoff

Madoff is sure right about the big lie. Look at him, no really look at him here http://www.iliketotellstories.com/2008/12/50-billion-bernard-madoff.html in this photo, this face is someone’s son that it seems willingly defrauded investors like you and me.   Handsome by all accounts, looks honest, an upstanding kind of guy, innocent until proven otherwise.

First rule, don’t shit where you eat.  American’s are weary of all the shit.  The rest of the world is shitting itself that capitalism equates only to greed and corruption and is faltering under the weight of it’s own democracy.  Untold thousands continue to pour in to our borders legally and illegally America, with all her faults, is still the land of opportunity and the greatest nation on earth. 

Obama has preached change and transparency but the desire to do so is far removed from what we have seen in his post election cycle.  Obama has had an excuse for every questionable thing and associate he has ever had.   Obama lists among his associates not only Rashid Khalidi, but” Rezko and Auchi, Odinga, Ayers, The New Black Panther Party, La Raza, Farrakhan, and how could we forget his holiness in hate, the mentor to Barack….Mr. Wright…..” http://www.floppingaces.net/2008/03/23/the-obama-associates/ who upon “God damning” America, said that Wright’s “comments were divisive and destructive.”

“Obama is not the Agent of Change. He is a calculating politician who plays the game the same way politicians have been playing it for hundreds of years – receiving money in exchange for favors from government for his friends and cronies.”  http://rightwingnuthouse.com/archives/2008/02/26/will-dirty-chicago-politics-be-the-undoing-of-obama/

The article “Will Dirty Chicago Politics be the Undoing of Obama” seems to have hit the nail on the head some 10 months later.  He goes on to say, “The Obama-Rezko relationship must be understood in the context of the influence peddling, the casual corruption, the cronyism, the favoritism shown in less than open bidding – all part of a city and state political culture where the politician, the businessman, and the crook frequently rub elbows and sometimes wear each other’s hats.

Hell, remember all the brew ha ha over Ayers and the Obama’s hanging out at a dinner for Khalidi?  The LA Times refused to release the tape and then there we rewards issued for it, including one from Dune Capital. 

Dune Holdings is part of Dune Capital Management LP, started by some people from Goldman Sachs. Founded by Steven T. Mnuchin who has donated a total of $14,400 to Democrats in the past year, including the max $2,300 to Obama. http://www.opensecrets.org/indivs/donor_lookup.php?name=Mnuchin

Seems when Dune Capital first volunteered a $100k reward for the Khalidi tapes, Penny Pritzker (Obama’s finance chairman) and Daniel Niedich (Secretary of Dune Capital) sit together on a Real Estate board.  http://www.dreier.house.gov/pdf/RER%20-%20HR1500%20Support.pdf

Dune Capital also donated to his campaign http://74.125.45.104/search?q=cache:dpUonTZSoxAJ:www.nndb.com/org/037/000171521/+dune+capital+holdings%2Bbarack+obama&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=2&gl=us.  The Tribune Company, http://www.tribune.com/which owns the LA Times sued to open up Jack Ryan’s divorce file.   Perhaps thats why Obama was able to walk into his Senate seat, virtually unopposed.

I am beginning to think Obama paid for the tape himself.  Obama made no comment that I could find, instead the campaign insisted that its candidate “has been clear that Rashid Khalidi is not an adviser to him or his campaign and that he does not share Khalidi’s views.” 

What did Obama have to say about Rezko? ” I am saddened…this isn’t the Tony Rezko I knew, now he has been convicted by a jury on multiple charges that once again shine a spotlight on the need for reform. ”  Upon learning about Blago’s arrest,  Obama told reporters he was saddened and sobered. “I had no contact with the governor or his office and so I was not aware of what was happening.” http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com/2008/12/source-feds-take-gov-blagojevich-into-custody.html  America is saddened with you, President- elect Obama not only for you but for America herself.  America was also saddened to learn that Clinton really did have sex with that woman. 

We will all be saddened to know if Obama was directly connected to the Pay for Play scam.  http://prairiepundit.blogspot.com/2008/12/emanuel-talked-with-blagojevich.html reports that Rahm Emanuel did have discussions with the Governors administration about possible candidates for the job.  Probably all in the course of a days work.  Right?  The criminal complaint exonerates Obama and his staff, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell said, because it quotes Blagojevich as saying the president-elect would offer him nothing but appreciation for appointing Obama confidant Valerie Jarrett to the position.  http://www.swamppolitics.com/news/politics/blog/2008/12/rendell_hits_obama_on_blago_st.html

The circus days of the past conjure up aromas of French fries, hot dogs, and buttery popcorn while the sounds were of calliopes.  As today’s circus stars of Blago, Rezko and Obama rolls through main street and main stream media, we smell a rat and now hear the same old song of deceit. 

God Bless America

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.  It isn’t Halloween anymore, and the skeletons are still coming out of the Obama closet. 

Just when he thought Obama thought he could breath easy with the likes of Ayers, Rezko, Autchi behind him along comes Rod Blagojevich dragging the Obama name back through the slime of Chicago and Illinois politics yet again.

 The full complaint is at http://www.chicagotribune.com/media/acrobat/2008-12/43789434.pdf .  I highlight, the FBI affidavit said Blagojevich had been told by an adviser “the president-elect can get Rod Blagojevich’s wife on paid corporate boards in exchange for naming the president-elects pick to the Senate.”‘  Someone from the Obama team got taped for two whole hours talking about Obama’s Senate Seat up for grabs and the http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/ once again has summed up nicely the damning, mounting evidence to at the very least, Obama’s previous relationships. 

Who the hell has time to sit and talk for two hours? Why doesn’t Obama look as surprised as the rest of us?  Why isn’t he making passionate commentary on the issue instead spewing stoic words like Abe Lincoln?  Where is his outrage?  “It would be inappropriate to comment” said Obama in a statement. Where is the outrage from all those people who voted for him?  No comment?  Where is Bush who could appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the team that will replace his?

Who will be fired first? Patrick Fitzgerald the prosecuting attorney, or chosen one, Rahm Emanuel?   Maybe Axelrod who got his dates wrong and admitted the two met but then got amnesia? 

I found this humorous- Alternet  http://www.alternet.org/blogs/peek/112008/obama_unfairly_attacked_for_crimes_he_didn’t_commit_(again)/ writes that  “numerous news organizations have been attempting to make this the first “scandal” of the Obama presidency as if Blagojevich is somehow a member of the transition or an appointee to the future administration. The truth is Obama never endorsed Blagojevich and Blagojevich never endorsed Obama. Unless you consider Blagojevich’s obnoxious “f**k him” remark to be an endorsement, that is.”  I’m not sure what was more funny-  that the blogger thinks this is the first scandal or the fact that both Obama and Emanuel have worked for Blagojevich’s campaign, could not be called an endorsement of Blagojevich.

Maybe they didn’t speak, maybe they did. Maybe Obama told Blago to f**k off.   Maybe Obama is eligible, maybe he isn’t.  Maybe, maybe, maybe someone will bring a case to the Court that maybe will put and end to all the Obaminations coming from Illinois and Obama himself. 

The list of maybes attached to Obama is beyond belief and goes all the way back to the day of his birth.  Maybe he was born in Hawaii, maybe he was born in Kenya.   His own site www.fightthesmears.com says…

When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children. (Emphasis added.)

“There it is.  Obama is telling you his status was “governed” by a foreign jurisdiction.  This is no theory.  This is a fact. ” says http://naturalborncitizen.wordpress.com/ , Leo Donofrio.  The ever vigilant, poker playing attorney prepared the The Wrotnowski Supreme Court application after his own case seems to have been set aside http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=83041   The case of Wrotnowski v Bysiewicz  is here http://origin.www.supremecourtus.gov/docket/08a469.htm  and again brings up the eligibility issue. 

So far, the wisdom of the Court has prevailed as the case did not get thrown out on its ear and is scheduled for a full conference some time today, December 15, 2008.  Maybe, just maybe this case will be heard with expediency and forthrightness so that Obama is unable to dismiss lingering eligibility concerns.  Maybe the Court can pick a date before January 20, 2009.  The Supremes should forget Christmas break and not forget about the millions of Americans who died with honor defending our Constitution.

“If this [Obama taking office] happens, the question of eligibility for the highest office in the land will no longer even be a matter for concern,” wrote Joseph Farah, founder and editor of WorldNetDaily.
“Precedent will have been established. Arnold Schwarzenegger will suddenly be eligible to run for the office in 2012,” Farah wrote, referring to the Austrian-born California governor and film star. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/nationworld/politics/wire/chi-obama-birth-certificate1dec08,0,5873179.story

The entire issue of natural born citizen is quite the legal conundrum.  Among other sites, the folks at http://therightwing.net/index.php/2008/12/09/the-natural-born-citizen-case-explained/  have an easy explanation of the natural born citizen clause and its merit to our laws for Presidency. 

Obama has dismissed just about every single association he has had barring his wife and kids.  I don’t think anyone has seen his marriage certificate either.   On that one, let’s give him the benefit of the doubt that he is indeed married.  He’s dismissed releasing not only his birth certificate but his medical records and college records.  What’s to hide?  Even McCain admitted he was far from a stellar student. 

One thing Obama can not dismiss is the acts of The Supreme Court.  Yes, some cases regarding President Elects eligibility have been dismissed but no one can dismiss the blatant “above the law” attitude that Obama has chosen for himself.  No one can dismiss the fact that the Supremes are learning more and more about these matters.  I begin to wonder if the courts thought process is lumping together all the issues from Berg, Donofrio, and Wrotnowski cases and coming to the conclusion that while it not be in the best interest of the nation to have an unconstitutional president, it needs to define exactly what that means.

Obama can not dismiss the fact that he is from the same Illinois political machine as other imprisoned and indited politicians nor dismiss the rulings of The Supreme Court which may today turn a full conference into a full hearing.

Obama has tried to stay ahead of the fray.  Anyone who walks in the middle of the road will get run over sooner or later.

God Bless America

Obama’s antics have been a lol like Batman and Robin movies, running around Gotham pretending he has super powers to save the good people.  From Batman Begins (2006)  –

Ra’s al Ghul: You are just an ordinary man in a cape! That’s why you couldn’t fight injustice and that’s why you can’t stop this train!
Batman: Who said anything about stopping it?
[Ra’s al Ghul looks up, confused, and sees his own sword jammed into the brake panel]
Jim Gordon: [blows up the train supports] Yes!
Batman: [reverses his grip and pins Ra’s al Ghul to the floor] You never learned to mind your surroundings!
[from trailer]
Henri Ducard: You traveled the world… Now you must journey inwards… to what you really fear… it’s inside you… there is no turning back. Your parents’ death was not your fault. Your training is nothing. The will is everything. If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, you become something else entirely. Are you ready to begin? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0372784/quotes

Obama has in fact manufactured himself in to an ideal alright, but Obama doesn’t have the same super powers as Batman.  The characters like Rezko, Ayers, Khalidi and others are coming back to haunt him. 

Underscoring yesterdays indictment of Governor Blagojevich in Chicago, the scenario is far more frightening for Obama, whose Senate seat it seems was up for sale, a crime of corruption and abuse of power so massive on the scale of Justice.  The audacity.   Watergate, Obamagate, Senategate, what next? 

 Read the indictment here http://www.chicagotribune.com/media/acrobat/2008-12/43789434.pdf

The NY Times editorial summarized it this way- In exchange for his pick, authorities said Mr. Blagojevich was looking for a substantial salary for himself at a foundation or an organization affiliated with labor unions, a highly paid position for his wife on corporate boards, a cabinet post or ambassadorship for himself or promises of future campaign funds.”  Does this translate to a Barack Obama, in return for naming his selection for the Senate making promises to the governor?  Tit for tat. 

Even more integrating, Blagojevich has not stepped down and may yet still name a replacement. 

Ill suited for the role of Batman, we look to Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald for the role of our hero.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-patrick-fitzgerald-profile,0,7100266.story Fitzgerald who prosecuted and convicted Tony Rezko, bugged the Governor’s office and certainly has other information on Gov. Blagojevich and other Chicago citizens.  I’d bet The Federal Court in Illinois have most likely already secured wire taps on the Obama campaign itself, with more damning evidence to come.  

We  might as well throw Rahm Emmanuel in the mix potentially as being the unnamed President Elect Adviser A or Adviser B.  Obama and Emmanuel got all nice an cozy working for Blago’s campaign. Or could it be Obama aide and former Blagojevich legislative director, Michael Strautmanis?  Follow the Obama/Blago relationship here http://www.orangepower.com/showthread.php?t=62577

Fitzgerald only has until January 20 to indict Barack Obama and anyone else.  If/When he takes the oath of office Jan. 20, he plans to be sworn in like every other president, using his full name: Barack Hussein Obama.  That aside, Fitzpatrick will have to move fast because with so many people with ties to Obama, he is most likely going to be fired the day he takes office.  So who might  be named next?  Maybe the FBI informant who informed Blagojevich, Emmanuel, Strautmanis, Axelrod, Barack Hussein Obama and/or  Joe Biden?

Obama campaign guru David Axelrod said on Nov. 23 that President-elect Barack Obama and Illinois Governor Blagojevich had talked directly about filling Obama’s Senate seat, and had talked after  Nov. 4.   Did Axelrod misspeak since we now have him backpedaling ?  Obama himself said, “I had no contact with the governor’s office,” but did someone else who works for Obama?  The Gateway Pundit offers the truth.  http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2008/12/obama-met-with-blagojevich-in-chicago.html

The improprieties from Auchi and Rezko have been wrapped around Obama and Biden campaign for months and finally our leading man, Fitzpatrick- pounced.  Convicted, Rezko certainly has a grudge against  Blagojevich and Obama and is apparently singing like a bird about all the improprieties.  Some of which can be found here  http://www.gop.com/news/NewsRead.aspx?GUID=793f809b-0cf9-46cb-9715-fb1d31738bf7  

Tony Rezko raised about $250,000 for the senator’s campaign and then, “Obama, seeking to distance himself from his patron [Rezko], has donated $160,000 in Rezko-related contributions to charity.” (Dan Morain, “Obama To Be In Background Of Trial,” Los Angeles Times, 3/3/08)   Guess Obama kept the other $90,000. 

Lest we forget, Obama’s close personal friend, Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was indicted and plead guilty to various charges.  A few points and this comparison from http://wigdersonlibrarypub.blogspot.com/2008/12/what-did-president-elect-know-and-when.html

And I think, too, that I can say that in my years of public life, that I welcome this kind of examination because people have got to know whether or not their President’s a crook. – Richard Nixon

But as this is an ongoing investigation involving the governor, I don’t think it would be appropriate for me to comment on the issue at this time. – Barack Obama

Fitzgerald, was clear that the complaint makes no allegations against Mr. Obama.  This complaint may not, but the next one might.  

All are rightfully presumed innocent until proven guilty but, if Obama is dragged into this saga and found guilty of collaborating with Blagojevich, who will benefit the most?  The 25th Amendment, “If the President and Vice President are found disqualified from their offices, the succession of office goes to, Sec. of State”.  None other than,  Hillary Rodham Clinton.  Tit for tat.

Batman, the never-ending sad story of recurring corruption- chapter by chapter, scene to scene played out in real life.  From the movie, “What are you seeking? Batman replies, “I seek the means to fight injustice, to turn fear against those who prey on the fearful.”
