I have been following the Tony Rezko trial and his ties to Obama,
Governor Blagojevich and crime and corruption in Chicago, Illinois
and the Middle East. Now that Rezko has been convicted, more
indictments are probable. Larry Sinclair is holding a press
conference this week. Was Obama using cocaine in November 1999?
Many aspects of Obama’s past, that the Obama campaign has tried
to hide, are surfacing. If you are buying in to the Obama
Campaign’s latest spin ploy, fighting rumors, this is about
court testimony and documentation. The picture of the real Obama
is emerging and it is scary.
The chickens are indeed coming home to roost.
Larry Sinclair has been attempting to educate the nation and
the world about the real Obama. The Obama that he alleges
was still using cocaine in 1999, while a member of the Illinois
Senate. Mr. sinclair has a news conference scheduled for Wednesday,
June 18, 2008. The Obama Campaign, Obama supporters and the big
money in Illinois and the Middle East have maintained a massive
campaign to try to discredit Mr. Sinclair. This campaign has
manifested itself in the form of a new spin machine, an attempt
to lump all allegations and questions as rumors. Or as Michelle
likes to say, don’t believe what you read on the internet.
While the Sinclair allegations have always been a serious matter
and part of the puzzle picture of Obama, I have always maintained
that the Sinclair story did not happen in a vacuum and fits well
within the context of Obama’s life and associations.Remember Stuart
Levine, a close associate of Rezko, admitted to a long time drug
problem and hosting regular drug parties with male friends.
Another serious and troubling aspect of Obama’s associations was
revealed in the Tony Rezko trial. Rezko was convicted of 16 of 24
counts of corruption. Obama and Rezko have a long and close
association. Obama and Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich were
mentioned frequently during the Rezko trial. Blagojevich was
mentioned more and may be the next person indicted as well as
being impeached. Obama endorsed Blagojevich.
Consider the following articles from the Chicago Tribune. If you
are an Obama supporter, this is a long established newspaper
that has been covering the rezko trial, Obama, Blagojevich
and the next phase of government indictments, in their move to bring
to justice, the players in Illinois corruption.
Rezko trial prelude to more indictments:
“The Justice Department’s prosecution of Antoin “Tony” Rezko was always about prelude, never about climax. The jury’s conviction of Rezko Wednesday on 16 criminal counts is one more point on a long investigative arc — an arc now pointed directly at Gov. Rod Blagojevich and other of his associates.
That arc reaches beyond the horizon to points none of us can see. But prosecutor Christopher Niewoehner unequivocally — and forcefully — told the Rezko jurors during closing arguments where federal authorities now are concentrating: “This is a crime that involves the highest levels of power in Illinois.””

Peel away layers of corruption:
“Everybody in Illinois is asking the same questions following Wednesday’s conviction of Tony Rezko, the governor’s friend and former fundraiser, on corruption charges. Who’s next? Will “Public Official A” get his turn?
Of course, “A” is Gov. Rod Blagojevich, outed as being under investigation a few months ago by a federal judge at the onset of Rezko’s trial. The revelations coming out of that deliberation — in testimony from the likes of Stuart Levine, Ali Ata, others — have been very damaging to this governor’s reputation, which was not so great to begin with.”

Will Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich be impeached?
“The memo sent to some House Democratic candidates, obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, offers a rundown of Blagojevich’s alleged “misdeeds and malfeasance” and detailed talking points on the merits of impeachment.
“We should excise a tumor when it is first discovered; not leave it in the body to continue to spread and do further harm,” the memo reads.”
Rezko’s letter should put Obama, governor on alert:
“The last thing Sen. Barack Obama and Gov. Rod Blagojevich needed was that letter written by convicted Illinois influence peddler Tony Rezko promising he’d never rat out his pals.”

For several weeks, the situation with Tony Rezko has reminded me
of Jack Ruby, who remained in prison. Like Rezko, he had connections
to crime and corruption. Rezko is connected to Obama, Chicago and
Illinois crime and corruption as well as Middle East big money
Will Tony Rezko talk?
Will Blagojevich be indicted or impeached?
Will Obama be indicted?
Part two in this series on Rezko, Obama and corruption in Chicago,
Illinois and the Middle East, will have “more layers peeled.”
