Do not forget. Obama controls the US Justice Dept.

From ABC 7 Chicago July 21, 2015.

“An appeals court vacated five convictions and threw out the sentence of former Ill. Gov. Rod Blagojevich on Tuesday afternoon. The rest of Blagojevich’s convictions were affirmed by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.”

“”My advice to the governor is he should fight on,” said Leonard Goodman, Blagojevich appellate attorney.

If Blagojevich chooses to appeal, he must tell the court within the next two weeks. But with five counts thrown out, the former governor will at some point be re-sentenced, and his attorneys will argue that his 14 years be dramatically reduced.

“Most people would look at this and say ‘Wow, if a quarter of his counts were reversed, and so a quarter of his sentence should be taken off’ – but that’s not the way that it works,” said Lauren Kaeseberg, Blagojevich attorney.

Trial Judge James Zagel could reduce the sentence, but guidelines also would permit him to leave it unchanged. The Blagojevich family hopes the former is the case.”

“If the prosecutor elects to drop the vacated charges, the district court could proceed directly to re-sentencing on the remaining 13 convictions only, according to the court document USA v. Rod Blagojevich.”

“Prosecutors have not said if they will retry Blagojevich, who is currently serving time in a Colorado prison. However, experts say it’s unlikely.

“They have two choices. They can retry the counts or just go to sentencing. And when you look at the three prosecutors that led this charge: two of them have already left the office… the last one just got appointed a state judge the other day. So it’s safe to say they’re not going to retry those counts,” former prosecutor Jeff Cramer said.

Resentencing Blagojevich, who has maintained he was engaged in legal, run-of-the-mill politics, will fall to Judge James Zagel. In the appeal, Blagojevich blamed Judge Zagel for a litany or errors.”

“”Time has passed. And Judge Zagel is a fair man. And I would expect that having those counts thrown out will cause the judge to reconsider the sentence,” Goodman said.”

From the Chicago Tribune July 21, 2015.

“Blagojevich’s appellate attorney, Leonard Goodman, said the long-awaited ruling didn’t address many of the issues that were raised in the former governor’s appeal.

“And the ones it does address it gets it wrong,” Goodman said. “So it’s shocking to me that after a year and a half this could be the result of the court’s work.”

Goodman said his advice to Blagojevich will be to continue to fight the case.

“The evidence that would have acquitted him was excluded at trial, and my advice to the governor is that he should fight on,” Goodman said.

Some Rod Blagojevich convictions tossed; wife tells him disappointing news
Goodman said he had not yet spoken to his client so he wasn’t sure about the next course of action, but he said he has options, including trying to get the case heard by the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Exactly the order of the proceedings will be up to the governor,” Goodman said.

Goodman took issue with the court, saying it made serious errors in its decision. He said the court was wrong when it supported the trial judge’s decision to exclude testimony from Blagojevich that he believed his actions were lawful.
“That is not the law. The Supreme Court just ruled this term that guilty knowledge is an element of proof for any criminal offense and this is no exception,” Goodman said. “This is pure politics. What he did was try to raise campaign cash, which is his job as governor.””

From Citizen Wells March 12, 2014.

The protection of Obama in the Blagojevich “prosecution” continues.

From the NY Times March 11, 2014.

“Illinois: Wiretaps of Ex-Governor Stay Sealed”

“An appellate court in Chicago ruled Tuesday that transcripts of F.B.I.wiretaps not played at former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s corruption trials should remain sealed, at least for now. The decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit came as it considered Mr. Blagojevich’s appeal, which asks the three-judge appellate panel to throw out his convictions.”

“The wiretaps are among those Judge James B. Zagel of Federal District Court barred the defense from playing to jurors. ”

From Citizen Wells February 3, 2014.

Only about 2 percent of the total wiretap transcripts used as evidence were revealed during the Blagojevich trials.

Blagojevich defense lawyers want all of the wiretap transcripts made transparent.

From the Belleville News-Democrat February 3, 2014.
“Blagojevich transcripts at issue in appeal”

“Prosecutors and attorneys for Rod Blagojevich disagree over unsealing wiretap transcripts that are part of the imprisoned former governor’s appeal of his conviction.

The U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals had said it would open the records Monday.

But citing privacy, prosecutors want them to stay sealed. In a response filed Monday, defense lawyers say transparency should trump other concerns.”

“The defense says a lower court barred jurors from hearing certain wiretaps that could have helped Blagojevich. Transcripts of recordings not played at trial were recently submitted to the appellate court, and are the records in dispute.”

Tony Rezko, with long time corruption ties to Barack Obama and Rod Blagojevich, has been released from prison to a halfway house.

From the Chicago Tribune July 7, 2015.

“Political insider Tony Rezko released to halfway house”

“Disgraced political insider Antoin “Tony” Rezko was released from federal prison in downstate Pekin on Tuesday and transferred to a halfway house in the Chicago area, authorities said.

Rezko was sentenced to 10 1/2 years for extorting millions of dollars from firms seeking state business or regulatory approval while he was a top fundraiser and adviser to then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

He was furloughed Tuesday morning, according to Ed Ross, a spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.”

“Rezko, an immigrant with an American rags-to-riches story, also pleaded guilty in October 2010 to a separate federal fraud charge over the bogus sale of his pizza restaurants.

Over the years, Rezko raised money for scores of local politicians, including Mayor Harold Washington and President Barack Obama.

Rezko’s release from custody is slated for May 5, 2016, according to Ross. Under terms of his furlough, Rezko must receive permission to leave the halfway house, Ross said.”

Can Obama keep Blagojevich and Hastert from talking?, Sidley Austin coming to their aid?, Hastert named in Rezko trial, Witness testified Rezko stated that Patrick Fitzgerald would be fired and replaced by Hastert pick, Purple Hotel or other Stuart Levine drug/sex ties?

“Maloof, who once helped run some of Rezko’s fast-food businesses, said Rezko told him of Fitzgerald’s replacement: “That they will order the prosecutor to stop the investigation.”
“It is the first time jurors heard an accusation that Rezko worked behind the scenes to oust Fitzgerald.”
“Maloof left the stand without ever invoking Barack Obama’s name, despite previous allegations by prosecutors that he made a straw donation for Rezko to Obama’s Senatorial campaign fund. It is clear that lawyers — and the judge — have been careful not to bring Obama’s name into case, even outside the presence of the jury.”…Chicago SunTimes April 28, 2008

“In both conversations with Obama for America and AKP Message & Media, I explained that on November 6, 1999, I had been introduced to Barack Obama by a friend and that Obama had, in fact, sold me an eight-ball of cocaine and had himself engaged in smoking crack cocaine in my limo on that date and again in my hotel room the following day.”…Larry Sinclair, “Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder”

“There is enough corruption in Illinois so that all it takes is someone who is serious about finding it to uncover it. If a U.S. attorney is not finding corruption in Illinois, they’re not seriously looking for it.”…Northwestern Law Professor James Lindgren

 

 

Rod Blagojevich and Tony Rezko have been languishing in prison for years for their involvement in Chicago, IL corruption.

Obama was involved in much of the same corruption but he has been occupying the White House.

It doesn’t seem quite fair, does it?

Blagojevich and Rezko know plenty about Obama’s involvement in corruption, drug use and probable down low sexual activity.

I am willing to bet that Dennis Hastert does too.

HastertBlagojevich

From comments and emails in 2008 by a Chicago restaurant owner.

Comment May 1, 2008.

“As the Chicago-area chef and restaurateur mentioned in this posting, I’ve already provided information to Larry Sinclair’s attorney concerning the several dozen (at least) gay men who spoke with me about Obama’s sexual proclivities (specifically, his being on the “down low,” as they say). I began hearing these rumors in late 2000-early 2001, and continued to hear them until I closed my restaurant and dropped out of civilized society in 2003. These stories were from apparently unrelated sources, and the details in each, when such details were given, were consistent from story to story: always oral sex only, with Obama as the, well, I suppose “recipient” would be as good a word as any.”

Comment May 24, 2008.

Yes, I do live in the Chicago area. I was a chef/restaurant owner here until several years ago. During that time, I heard from several dozen different Chicagoland gay men that Obama was bisexual. Their details closely correspond with Larry Sinclair’s account. This was several years before Obama’s presidential run… he was simply a local politician, part of the same dark Chicago political machine that makes that of my home area (Washington, DC) seem almost tame by comparison. Back then, all I knew of Obama was that he was an extremely mediocre legislator and was one of the dirtiest campaigners I’ve ever encountered… and I come from a politically involved family, and had previously known many a less-than-clean politician. I’m honestly astonished that anyone considers him capable of leading this country in any direction except down.

Comment June 5, 2008.

“Levine’s the one who’s talking… yet he was silenced in court by the judge, stopped from naming names, including the names of the politicians and powerbrokers who had the “all-night all-male drug parties.” And those he has done his talking to — FBI? Fitzgerald? some we know, some we don’t — haven’t let any secrets slip, either.

They’ve thrown Blagojevich to the wolves… and we both know who he was sacrificed for.”

Email May 6, 2008.

“And as I told you tonight, the only other politician mentioned to me as being on the down low by gay guys from the Chicago area, none other than Denny Hastert… who apparently stepped down from a highly powerful US Senate career after being threatened with being outed for gay activities.”

So, there we have it.

Dennis Hastert, who is being investigated for perjury and banking activities tied to alleged gay sex extortion, according to the Rezko trial testimony, was going to help replace Patrick Fitzgerald.

Why and How?

From the Chicago Tribune April 29, 2008.

“Witness says Hastert linked to alleged plot
House speaker would have picked Fitzgerald’s replacement, defendant’s ex-associate claims”

“The name of former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert was added Monday to the roster of political heavyweights linked by witnesses to an alleged plan to dump Chicago’s top federal prosecutor and kill a criminal investigation into a top fundraiser for Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

A witness at the corruption trial of Blagojevich insider Antoin “Tony” Rezko testified that Rezko told him in February 2005 about an effort under way to fire U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald and replace him with someone more compliant to be hand-picked by Hastert, then the top Republican in the House.

Rezko said the Hastert designee would then “order the prosecutor to stop the investigation,” recalled Elie Maloof, a former Rezko business associate who also testified that Rezko had told him to keep Rezko’s name to himself if he were questioned by authorities because it could damage Blagojevich.”

From True News USA August 27, 2013.

“The Purple Hotel – made famous during the Stuart Levine criminal trial as the hotel that Rezko, Stuart Levine, and Obama attended drug filled gay orgies is set to be demolished”

“Daylong, drug-fueled parties at the Purple Hotel in Lincolnwood and sometimes in Springfield. Snorting crystal meth and “Special K.” Stuart Levine, the star witness at businessman and political fund-raiser Tony Rezko’s corruption trial, told jurors Monday the drugs would make him “euphoric” and lower his inhibitions as he partied all night with five other men.
“I would stay out all night,” said Levine, testifying that he hid his behavior “in order to deceive my family.”

Stuart Levine (inset) testified that he took part in daylong, drug-fueled parties at the Purple Hotel (shown in 2006) in Lincolnwood.”

The law firm of Sidley Austin is representing Hastert.

From Muckety May 20, 2012.

“Obama connection to Sidley Austin still strong

To those outside legal circles, Sidley Austin is probably best known as the Chicago law firm where Barack Obama and Michelle Obama met.

The future president was an intern in 1989. The future first lady was an associate. Barack Obama turned down a job offer at the end of his internship, Michelle Obama left the firm, and the two married in 1992.”

“Two decades later, Sidley Austin is faring well under the Obama administration.

Current and former attorneys at the firm receiving presidential appointments include:

  • Virginia A. Seitz – Seitz was a partner at Sidley Austin before being named assistant attorney general in 2011.
  • Gary Scott Feinerman – A former solicitor general of Illinois and clerk to Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, Feinerman is now a federal judge with the District Court of the Northern District of Illinois.
  • David B. Barlow – A partner at the firm from 2006 to 2010, Barlow is now U.S. attorney for the Utah district.
  • John G. Levi – A current partner and a bundler for the Obama 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns, Levi chairs the Legal Services Corporation, a governmental corporation that funds legal aid for the poor.
  • Christopher P. Lu – After working as a litigation associate at Sidley Austin, Lu moved to government. He was legislative director to then-Sen. Barack Obama and is now the president’s cabinet secretary.
  • Kathryn B. Thomson – Thomson, who is married to Lu, worked for 19 years at Sidley Austin. She became counselor to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood in 2009, and was appointed chief counsel of the Federal Aviation Administration in 2012.
  • Michael Strautmanis – Like Lu, Strautmanis worked with Obama before 2009. He was chief counsel and deputy chief of staff during Obama’s stint in the Senate. He previously practiced complex litigation and employment law at Sidley Austin.

Newton Minow, senior counsel at the law firm and chairman of the Federal Communications Commission during the Kennedy administration, has multiple connections to the White House. Minow met Barack Obama through his daughter Martha, who was Obama’s professor. She urged her father to hire the young law student.

As president, Obama appointed Martha Minow, now dean of Harvard Law School, to the Legal Services Corporation. He named another Minow daughter, Mary, to the National Museum Library Services Board.

Sidley Austin has been embraced by Washington in more ways than federal appointments.

The firm has landed federal contracts totalling nearly $12 million since 2009.”

The Chicago Tribune asks:  Why is Blago’s appeal dragging on and on?

A much bigger and more important question is: Why was the Blagojevich prosecution and adjudication delayed over years?

Especially since his administration came under investigation by the feds at least by late 2003.

The answer is: It is all about protecting Obama.

Recently the National Enquirer reported:

“He’s constantly muttering to himself about Obama and blames the president for him being in prison and is sure he will be released within the year,”

http://www.nationalenquirer.com/celebrity/world-exclusive-blago-behind-bars-going-bonkers

From the Chicago Tribune April 10, 2015.

“Commentary: Why is Blago’s appeal dragging on and on?”

“It’s been three years since former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich started his 14-year prison sentence for political corruption, including trying to sell Barack Obama’s soon to be vacated U.S. Senate seat. If his appeal is unsuccessful, the earliest he could get out of prison would be around Christmas 2024.

But wait. He appealed his conviction before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit in Chicago on July 15, 2013. So, he still has a chance his conviction will be overturned and he’ll be released, resentenced or the appellate court may order a new trial on all the charges. There still is a glimmer of hope for the disgraced governor.

This appeal, however, is unique in the annals of appellate jurisprudence. The case was argued before a three-judge panel in December 2013. Normally, a decision is handed down within three to six months after oral argument before the court. In a very rare situation, the decision may not be rendered until nine months after the case was argued.

However, it’s been more than 15 months since the case was argued before the court and “taken under advisement,” more than double the normal time for deciding an appeal.
This extraordinary delay has generated extensive speculation by legal scholars and practitioners as to what is going on in the court’s deliberation over the appeal. Some say the court is really struggling with the central issue of so-called “honest services,” the fuzzy legal distinction between traditional political horse-trading and flat-out corrupt bribery. Others maintain the court is just being particularly careful in light of the national significance of the case. Still others suggest that a lengthy written majority opinion is likely, with an equally lengthy dissenting opinion, both of which likely require drafts and redrafts in an attempt to “get it right.”

Whatever the explanation, this appeal is proving to be out of the ordinary.”

“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich

 

 

Ted Cruz eligibility

Ted Cruz stated that he was born a citizen of the US. Prior to his presidential run announcement that could be considered the truth, depending on which immigration statute du jour that you look at and whether or not he complied with them.

Now that Cruz is running for president, it is misleading and therefore a lie.

He must be a natural born citizen to be president and that is defined in the US constitution and the definition at the time of ratification still applies. It has not been amended.

The US Supreme court has also not redefined the meaning of natural born citizen.

Why have so many in the media, as well as the Harvard Law Review been so quick to state that Cruz is eligible?

The answer is simple.

To protect Obama.

Obama had 1 US citizen parent and was born in who in the hell knows where.

Obama eligibility

Prior to Kerchner v Obama, the emphasis was on no proof of US birth for Obama, the missing authentic birth certificate (we still haven’t seen one).

In the initial filing of the lawsuit, the emphasis is on compliance with the original definition of natural born citizen, born to 2 US citizen parents on US soil.

For those who have not read it or want to revisit it.

CDR Charles F. Kerchner, et al v Barack Obama, et al.

“Obama’s Father Not a U.S. Citizen

44. Presumably Obama’s mother was a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth.
45. Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr., at the time of Obama’s birth was a British subject/citizen subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom, and would have handed down British citizenship to his son, Obama. Endnote 8.
46. Obama publicly admits his father was not a U.S. citizen and was a British
subject and then a Kenyan citizen when Kenya became an independent country.
47. Hence, at the time of his birth on August 4, 1961, Obama was born to a U.S.
citizen mother but not a U.S. citizen father.
48. Under the definition of an Article II “natural born Citizen,” Obama therefore
cannot be a “natural born Citizen.” Endnote 9.”

“That is why John Jay, who was a major writer in The Federalist Papers which
were critical in the ratification process of getting the Constitution approved, requested that the term be inserted into our Constitution. He was one of the founders who was very concerned about foreign influences being exerted on our new nation, especially on the President and Commander in Chief of the Army. He was not concerned about the loyalties of existing “original citizens” of the new country because they had openly fought for independence. And that is why the Article II grandfather clause is in there for them. But John Jay was very concerned about foreign influences on future Presidents and Commander in Chiefs. Thus he wrote the letter to General Washington. Washington
agreed and had the clause put in the Constitution and the delegates agreed and approved it and the “We the People” of those days voted for it and ratified it. And it can only be changed now by a new amendment by today’s “We the People.””

US Jobs

Citizen Wells has been reporting the real jobs situation and the decimation of white american jobs.

Here is another correlation to the jobs data.

From Citizen News March 31, 2015.

“Unauthorized aka illegal immigrants gain more white collar jobs”

From Pew Research March 26, 2015.

“In a reflection of changes in the overall economy since the Great Recession, the U.S. unauthorized immigrant workforce now holds fewer blue-collar jobs and more white-collar ones than it did before the 2007-2009 recession, but a solid majority still works in low-skilled service, construction and production occupations, according to new Pew Research Center estimates.”

“Unauthorized immigrants made up 5.1% of the nation’s labor force in 2012, numbering 8.1 million who were working or looking for work, according to previously published Pew Research estimates (Passel and Cohn, 2014). But as this new analysis shows, they account for a far higher share of the total workforce in specific jobs, notably farming (26%), cleaning and maintenance (17%), and construction (14%).”

Blagojevich

Speaking of protecting Obama.

We are still waiting on a ruling on the Rod Blagojevich appeal.

Why the hurry.

This has only been going on for almost 15 years from the time his administration first came under investigation by the feds through Blagojevich becoming poised to run for president until 2006 when he and Obama traded places, my belief that a deal was struck to protect Obama, his arrest after the 2008 election, 2 trials, numerous delays, hiding of evidence, an inordinate amount of elapsed time for an appeal decision…..

“Regardless of how this plays out, it benefits Obama. If there is no appeal or the appeal is denied, Blagojevich will be sequestered. If the appeal proceeds, it could drag out beyond impacting the 2012 election cycle. The intent is obvious.”…Citizen Wells, July 19, 2011

This sounds more like the old Soviet Union than what I remember of the US.
