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.

Ship-Probo-Koala-001

(Update below) When freedom of the press is compromised in the New World Order, it is nothing less than another example of  government having control over it’s population.   In yet another instance:

The Guardian has been prevented from reporting parliamentary proceedings on legal grounds which appear to call into question privileges guaranteeing free speech established under the 1688 Bill of Rights.

The Guardian is also forbidden from telling its readers why the paper is prevented – for the first time in memory – from reporting parliament. Legal obstacles, which cannot be identified, involve proceedings, which cannot be mentioned, on behalf of a client who must remain secret.

The only fact the Guardian can report is that the case involves the London solicitors Carter-Ruck, who specialise in suing the media for clients, who include individuals or global corporations. ( emphasis mine)

Gagged. Don’t stop the presses.  Last month,  the same reporter David Leigh wrote,  How the UK Oil Company Trafigura tried to cover up an Africa Pollution Disasterhttp://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/sep/16/trafigura-oil-ivory-coast

The British oil trader Trafigura has offered to pay out in a historic damages claim from 31,000 Africans injured by the dumping of toxic waste in one of the worst pollution disasters in recent history, the Guardian can reveal.

The compensation deal for the victims of toxic oil waste dumping in west Africa – likely to be confirmed imminently – means the full extent of attempts to cover up what really happened can be spelled out for the first time. They have until now denied the compensation claims, and their lawyers repeatedly threatened anyone worldwide who sought to contradict their version. They launched a libel case against BBC Newsnight, forced a “correction” from the Times, demanded the Guardian deleted articles, and yesterday tried to gag  journalists in the Netherlands and Norway with legal threats.

Supporting his claim, Leigh provided internal emails from Trafigura’s company operatives around the world, which can be seen here- http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/sep/16/trafigura-email-files-read .  We do ask if  these company’s internal documents are proprietary or open as court documents?

The  e-mails “give a blow-by-blow account of the oil trading firm’s decision to buy gasoline from the Mexican state refinery PMI via a US oil terminal at Brownsville, and then process it at sea on a chartered tanker, the Probo Koala, using “caustic washing”.

Since the newspaper is under a gag order, we don’t know for sure if the two are related.  We surmise that there is enough preponderance of evidence that they are.  While the abuses allegedly committed by Tragifura come to light, it is not enlightening to know that a “democratic” Parliament has enabled itself,  ignoring laws to turn it’s back on freedom of the press.

“The editor, Alan Rusbridger, said: “The media laws in this country increasingly place newspapers in a Kafkaesque world in which we cannot tell the public anything about information which is being suppressed, nor the proceedings which suppress it. It is doubly menacing when those restraints include the reporting of parliament itself.”

The gag order comes on the heels of Italy’s freedom press rally where thousand’s gathered  protest in Rome’s central Piazza del Popolo against Silvio Berlusconi, Italy’s prime minister.  Berlusconi, owns three of Italy’s seven free-to-air TV channels, has also urged businessmen to stop placing ads in newspapers and magazines that attack him.

His critics say he also exerts considerable influence over state television RAI. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8289166.stm More commentary comes from http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/libertycentral/2009/oct/10/italy-press-freedom-berlusconi

The Index Censorship does and excellent job at tracking freedom of the press here http://www.indexoncensorship.org/2009/10/press-barred-from-reporting-parliamentary-question/.

cartoon_Malaisie_small_size-2

In yet another example of censorship, the Malaysia government has decided to prosecute the company that published the new cartoon magazine Gedung Kartun for not having a permit. The interior ministry said Zunar’s company, Sepakat Efektif, would be prosecuted under section 5 (2) (b) of the Printing Presses and Publication Act 1984 for “publication without a licence.” As its owner, Zunar faces up to three years in prison and a fine of up to 20 million ringgits.  Guess who issues the license?  The Malaysian government. http://www.rsf.org/spip.php?page=article&id_article=34658

Don’t for one minute think it doesn’t happen in America. Recall the brew ha ha over Ayers and the Obama’s hanging out at a dinner for Rashid Khalidi?  The LA Times refused to release the tape and there we rewards issued for it, including one from Dune Capital.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/12/13/the-blago-rezko-and-obama-3-ring-circus/ Censored information or witheld information protecting now President Barack Obama?  We have never seen the tape.  Have you seen this one from Sean Hannity and Fox discussing Obama at Rashid Khalidi’s house, toasting the former PLO press director while anti-Israel comments fly about the room?

On September 25, 2009 at a forum, debate and roundtable at Columbia University “UNRWA historical performance in a changing context”  – “Rashid Khalidi of Columbia University also made an appearance as the debate’s moderator—an indication of the spectrum of opinions present—deviating from his role as an objective overseer only to reiterate his colleagues’ anti-Israel and anti-Western diatribes.” http://www.campus-watch.org/article/id/8525.

Rashid Khalidi continues to make appearances and thanks some freedom of the press his views remain public. 

Democracy is freedom of the press.   The World Press Freedom Index that Reporters Without Borders compiles every year and from the 2008 edition can be found here at http://www.rsf.org/Only-peace-protects-freedoms-in.html.

President Obama has admitted, “I screwed up,” in his reference to selecting Tom Daschle, Nancy Killefer,  and Bill Richardson, to key government positions.  How Tim Geithner squeaked by is beyond me.

“It’s important for this administration to send a message that there aren’t two sets of rules — you know, one for prominent people and one for ordinary folks who have to pay their taxes,” Obama said. Earlier in the day, Obama had proclaimed he was “absolutely” sticking with Daschle for Health and Human Services Secretary.-CNN

Only days on the job, and already he admits he screwed up?  Maybe the voters screwed up.  Certainly from someone with an advanced degree from Harvard, he could have chose to say I made a mistake instead of saying screwed. 

In another fine example of failure to vett potential nominees, we are again witness to people whose backgrounds reveal that they are deceitful, not unintentional oversights.   A person selected to oversee the implementation of policy should have impeccable credentials, just like Obama who has explained and dismissed any questionable relationship he has ever had with Ayers, Rezko, Kahlidi, Odinga, Rev. Wright Wrong, ACORN, etc. http://www.fightthesmears.com/

Obama has come out smelling like a rose en route the The Presidency even though his own vetting left a lot to be desired.  No one still has seen his official birth certificate even after numerous lawsuits by Berg, Donofrio and others.  Obama’s selective service documents are out of alignment with the truth. Where is his report card and transcripts?  Really, why would the American voters expect the vetting of his selections to be any different than Obama’s own vetting?

President Obama warned Republicans recently on Capitol Hill that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration.   “You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” he said to the GOP leaders whom he himself had invited to the White House to discuss his trillion dollar stimulus.  The funny thing is, I know more about Rush Limbaugh’s success and failures than Obama’s.  Too bad for Joe the Plumber who got a full vetting in public. 

Are we supposed to believe in all those government agencies working together to prevent terrorism when we have a leader who’s team can’t even vett or nominate someone without tax problems?  If the Obama government is trying to adjust the market’s allocation of wealth and opportunity it should start by selecting acceptable candidates and properly vetting them.  Perhaps he should take his own advice to heart and ask his wife when he said in an interview for of all places, The Ladies Home Journal, “I would never make a big decision without asking her opinion.”

The millions of Obama trolls must be saddened to know he owned up to a mistake.  Obama’s political e-mail list tops 13 million names, a digital force that he can rely on to push for his legislations, hinder critics, or seek support.  ” That power gives Obama’s on line advisers a potentially bigger role than many of his Cabinet picks and major hires in pushing through an agenda.   A Cabinet secretary stumping for a new bill has been rendered less powerful than a million e-mails crashing the Capitol; a visit to the Hill from top aides is unmatched to on line petitions that clog legislative offices.” http://sweetness-light.com/archive/obamas-online-trolls-to-keep-at-it.  The good thing for Obama is he doesn’t have to vett 13 million names.

The little thorns on the stem of the rose that smelled like sweet victory got him elected in the first place will keep pricking and poking away at his selections and his plans-those little thorns are called Republicans. As Obama so eloquently pointed out when people disagree with his policy, he said arrogantly, “I Won,” when challenged by republican Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl of Arizona over the contents of the stimulus package. 

You sure did win President Obama, now stop screwing up our land of hope and change.

The last political figure to admit, “I screwed up,” was John McCain telling David Letterman when he canceled a “Late Show” appearance. 

We all know what happened to McCain.

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.”

Obama Lawsuits Pending at Supreme Court

“So how many Americans does it take to verify the birth status of POTUS-Elect Barrack Obama?

The world may never know! ”

(Sorry Tootsie Pop but I have always loved that commercial with the little owl) 
http://readmylipstickprint.blogspot.com/2008/11/asleep-at-wheel.html 

Is it Constitutional Law or Common Law that dictates the qualification of a natural born citizen and eligibility to hold the office of President?  I don’t think the Supreme Court is certain who has standing in seeking out the true citizenship and authentic birth certificate of President Elect Obama.  SCOTUS will be gathering in conference this Friday, December 5, 2008 to find out.  The Supreme Court judges will hopefully not deviate from their responsibility, which is the strict interpretation of written law.  I hope they will allow both the Berg and Donofrio cases to proceed against the grain of popularity, and with the scale of justice.

Leo C Donofrio, SCOTUS Docket No. 08A407, Donofrio v. Wells, and recently Cort Wrotnowski, (SCOTUS Docket No. 08A469 lay in wait for review or dismissal at SCOTUS.  Berg hasn’t gone anywhere for the moment- from his SCOTUS appeal,

“Judge Surrick claimed
the DNC’s promises were not actually promises but
instead of statement of intentions. Judge Surrick
went on further claiming, “The ‘promises’ that
Petitioner identifies arc statements of principle and
intent in the political realm. They are not enforceable
promises under contract law. Indeed, our political
system could not function if every political message
articulated by a campaign could be characterized as
a legally binding contact enforceable by individual
voters. Of course, voters are free to vote out of office
those politicians seen to have breached campaign
promises and Federal courts, however, are not and
31
cannot be in the business of enforcing political
rhetoric.”

Ain’t that a kick in the pants?  It all goes back to the fact that if Philip J. Berg, American citizen, and former attorney general of Pennsylvania doesn’t have the “standing” to bring this type of lawsuit against Obama, then who in America does have standing? How is it that the lower court has decided that a citizen can not enforce there own Constitution in a court of law?

What the Judge missed is that Berg wasn’t challenging political rhetoric at all, he was and is, challenging Constitutional and Common Law that dictates who is eligible.  Berg’s filing to SCOTUS can be found here- http://www.sectalk.com/boards/showthread.php?t=62655&referrerid=1579

At the very least one hopes Berg’s case gets remanded back to the lower court who created this grave error in its ruling and at the very best scenario, The Supreme Court agrees to hear the case.

More filings are pouring in to lower and federal court to get to the bottom of Obama’s eligibility with Darrel Reese Hunter of Texas,  who ran as a Democratic Presidential nominee http://www.ontheissues.org/senate/Darrel_Hunter.htm.   According to his financial records he didn’t have much success in fund raising, garnering merely $200 in support of himself.  http://query.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/can_detail/P40003022/ . Daniel John Essek has also filed a demand that Obama provide a copy of his birth certificate.  http://www.essek4senate.org/ 

Essek and Hunter have put themselves out there for scrutiny, whatever there motives.  They as citizens, voters and wanna be elected officials, are pursuing fair competition for a fair election.  In all fairness to Obama, I haven’t seen their birth certificates either, but I’d bet they show you theirs if you showed them yours.  Don’t forget about Alan Keyes, former Reagan administration official, Ambassador and presidential candidate was among petitioners who filed an action last Thursday in the Superior Court of California seeking a court order enjoining Barack Obama’s California Electors from signing the Certificate of Vote until documentation showing the president-elect’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president is produced.  

 Keyes v Bowen, Superior Court, Sacramento, 34-2008-80000096-cu-wm-gds. Read it here

On other news from Hawaii http://www.earthfrisk.com/blog/?p=135#comment-7990  claims that none of HI hospitals have a record of birth for Obama.  In a most impressive compilation http://gto7.wordpress.com/2008/12/03/shocker-why-obama-will-not-be-president-in-january/ writes of the discrepancies in Hawaii law that may have allowed Obama and anyone else to obtain a Hawaiian birth certificate, even if he/she wasn’t born there. 

Shame, shame on Hawaii.  Is it still that easy to obtain a fraudulent birth certificate in Hawaii?  OMG- talk about a loophole in national security.   How can Governor Lingle in good conscious allow this to continue?  No wonder Andy Martin has been so persistent.  Here we have a government, capable of tracking our every move and it still issues documents to people born in foreign lands. 

“I’m a simple guy. Tell me what the rules are, apply those rules to everyone equally and I am a happy camper. However, if you tell me what the rules are, apply them to only some of us and throw them away when it suits you, I am not a happy camper.”

Humph, I am not happy and I don’t think another lick on my Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop is going to make a bit of difference.  Oh wait- isn’t Tootsie Roll HQ in Chicago?  Ah huh, another suspect in Obama’s circle of friends like Ayers and Rezko coming from Chicago.  I just bit into the tootsie roll part and lost a filling.  Go figure.
