Posts Tagged ‘Rahm Emmanuel’

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.”
