Barack Obama has begun distancing himself from IL Governor Rod Blagojevech
now and will “throw him under the bus” after Blagojevich’s arrest.
However, Obama and Blagojevich have strong ties going back for years
including Obama endorsing Blagojevich.

Obama and Blagojevich ties to Chicago and IL crime and corruption

ABC News has an article and video that catches Obama lying again regarding
his contact with Rod Blagojevich:

“Questions Arise About the Obama/Blagojevich Relationship
December 09, 2008 3:37 PM

“Obviously like the rest of the people of Illinois I am saddened and sobered by the news that came out of the US attorney’s office today,” said President-elect Obama this afternoon in Chicago, speaking of the criminal complaint against Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich for corruption. “But as this is a ongoing investigation involving the governor I don’t think it would be appropriate for me to comment on the issue at this time.”

Asked what contact he’d had with the governor’s office about his replacement in the Senate, President-elect Obama today said “I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening.”

But on November 23, 2008, his senior adviser David Axelrod appeared on Fox News Chicago and said something quite different.

While insisting that the President-elect had not expressed a favorite to replace him, and his inclination was to avoid being a “kingmaker,” Axelrod said, “I know he’s talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them.””

  1. Ahhh yes….technology…video and youtube. Going to be very hard to get away from this one. Hannity was all over this and it’s on the front headline on Drudge!

  2. I KNOW, I KNOW, just a guy in the neighborhood, right?…….

    mr obama, the American people bought that once, but we WON’T be fooled again………..

    Wait, what’s that sound? Could it be the obama express coming off the rails?

  3. I must say this is a great article i enjoyed reading it keep the good work 🙂

  4. from

    The truth is that the Supreme Court did NOT “deny cert” to Leo Donofrio yesterday. The truth is the Supreme Court did NOT “turn down” Donofrio’s case yesterday. The truth is that Leo Donofrio’s case is still “PENDING” at the Supreme Court, and the court only denied the application to stay an election.

    …the election that Donofrio had been trying to stay was the November 4th election (he hurriedly filed his case on November 3rd to do so).

    So, it is logical that the court would, on December 8th, deny an application to stay an election that already happened on November 4th.

    Donofrio’s case is still PENDING.

    MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2008

    The application for stay addressed to Justice Thomas and referred to the Court is denied.

    [Note the ABSENCE of Donofrio’s case here]

    Donofrio’s case is NOT listed under CERTIORARI DENIED.

    Everyone should take another look at the order list from the SCOTUS yesterday.

    Not only was Donofrio’s case NOT denied certiorari, but a third case (Cort Wrotnowski vs. Susan Bysiewicz, Connecticut Secretary of State) was referred to the Court by Justice Scalia – distributed for conference this coming Friday:

    Dec 8 2008 DISTRIBUTED for Conference of December 12, 2008.
    Dec 8 2008 Application (08A469) referred to the Court by Justice Scalia.

    It sounds like Donofrio may have called this correctly earlier today:

    On the chance that SCOTUS was looking at both my case and Cort’s case, I must stress that Cort’s case does not have the same procedural hang up that mine does. It may be that without a decision on the Judicial misconduct allegation correcting the NJ Appellate Division case file, SCOTUS might have been in the position of not being able to hear my case as it would appear that my case was not before them on the proper procedural grounds.

    I did file a direct appeal under the proper NJ Court rules, but the lower Court judge refused to acknowledge that and if his fraudulent docketing was used by SCOTUS they would have a solid procedural basis to throw mine out.

    Friday could turn out to be a very, very big news day.

  5. speaking of OBAMA, Dec 1st has come and gone, it’s been a week. Did I miss the Souter decision on the BERG case to full court, denied, or still waiting on defendants response?

  6. With today’s electronic money trails, it’s going to be easy to spot the fraud connections here.

    Like dominoes in a swimming pool, only the poolmaster has started the backwash pump.

  8. The Teflon Man might get stuck as msm is actually reporting… while they FAIL to mention that BO is actually a DEM ?? !!

    Thanks for all you updates. I depend on them.

  9. Oh, please get a grip.

    I am from Chicago and this guy is an embarrassment. Just to show you how Blago is on stupid, how in the world could he expect anything from Barack Obama.

    If you clowns would read the criminal complaint, there is no blood lost between Obama and Blago.

    Blago was not a surrogate, the ONLY Democratic Governor who did not address the Democratic Convention, was not invited to Grant Park, no ties to Obama. Now for politics sake, yes they may have spoken, he is the governor of Illinois, but again if you listened to Patrick Fitzpatrick, Obama had nothing to do with this. Obama’s dealings with Blago have been with a very long handled spoon.

    The man is toxic here and it was a matter of TIME before he was brought down.

    Now, I know you are playing connect the dots here, but there are no corrupt dots to connect especially when Republican US Attorney Patrick Fitzpatrick stated on camera that Obama had nothing to do with this.

    Please do yourselves some good and read the criminal complaint by the feds, it would sure enlighten you all.


  10. Yes, thank you, CitizenWells, I check here a couple of times a day and really depend on your timely, factual reports that I cannot seem to ever get on cable! There are far more facts in your blog posts than I’ve heard on TV.

    The fact is that Obama is hiding so many things from us because he has so many things to hide!
    One day soon he will develop terminal eyetwitch and step down. Then he will disappear as he apparently did from 1981-1983 when he supposedly was attending Columbia U. Don’t care where ya go, just go away.

  11. Who cares what Obama thinks? What do YOU think America? How many “associations” are we going to ignore and simply just let a CHICAGO THUG and Michelle Angela Davis Obama waltz in and DISGRACE THE WHITE HOUSE?

    We have one last chance to contact the Electoral College to stop the constitutional crises that will result if Barack Obama gets sworn in without meeting the presidential requirement of being a natural born US citizen.


    The letters will be sent FedEx to all 538 members of the Electoral College and will be delivered Friday morning, giving each elector the weekend to consider the constitutional issues raised by Obama’s presidency.

    Remember: We are not responsible whether they listen or they fail to listen, but we ARE responsible to deliver the message [Read Ezekiel 2 & 3]

  12. Ted — your analysis is correct, but SCOTUS docket is a little like a phone directory, sometimes it lists the phone number, sometime phone number and address.

    Leo knows that his case has been denied (as a stay), and if he wants it considered, he has to bring it back in an ENTIRELY NEW form.

    I think he is planning to do just that, by writing a “friend of the court brief” or “amicus brief, ” and attach it to Cort.

    He has to be careful of 1 thing – Alioto. If the reason Leo’s case was denied is because it comes from New Jersey, and Alioto arrived to SCOTUS recently from New Jersey, he may make it impossible for Alioto to paarticipate in the case.

    But, he is the one who has to make those decisions.

  13. I read the criminal complaint, the Rezko trial transcripts and other pertinent
    information. Fitzgerald did not say that Obama would not be indicted or was
    not being investigated.
    Do some more reading.

  14. I noticed the ABC video is no longer available here or on other sites. What country is this?

  15. Ice….I think you better go back and read the transcripts and re-view the TV interview of Fitzpatrick….

  16. Actually I was advised to read around paragraph 100 or so, so I went to paragraph 90 and started reading all the way to the end. My dear posters, the word “president-elect” was mentioned, oh I could go back and count but I would say around 15 to 20 times. Coming right out of Blago’s filthy mouth.

    There was Blago saying he doesn’t want to be the governor any more (wish coming true) but that he would like pres-elect to get him a job in the cabinet …. or that he would like pres-elect to convince Warren Buffet to help him get a $200,000 to $300,000 job sitting on some board. (Didn’t know those jobs existed, can I have one?)

    And his advisor was careful to say that it shouldn’t look like Obama was doing anything for him directly.

    Now these thoughts spoken could have been wishful thinking. But there was an awful lot of it in those phone calls. Why would he think Obama would help him if he really didn’t know him?

    It’s amazing how many people Obama knows that he says he doesn’t really know.

  17. Had to switch channels this morning when someone on MSNBC was already spinning the story saying something like: “It’s amazing how Obama came out of Chicago but was able to stay away from all the crookedness. It just shows you how it really can be done, it’s a new kind of politics Obama shows.”

    What? Kool-Aid so early in the morning?

  18. We are not through with those scum bags.
    There will be hell to pay!

  19. On a happier note.
    My significant other took the last 6 names from the Christmas tree
    at the coffee shop. These are names of elderly people and each one
    will get a radio, disposable camera, blanket, socks and card.
    She went shopping this morning and is placing the items in a gift
    bag with ornaments.
    This made my day.
    I hope that it makes yours.
    God bless.

  22. The YouTube video is now down too. I smell a rat! People, please when you come across such things, save the videos to your hard drive. There are many free programs you can use to save YouTube videos.

  23. So….now the video isnt available? Why doesnt this surprise me…….(MORE things that make ya go Hmmm…)

  24. All I gotta say is I didn’t vote for Obama!If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck,it’s a duck!!!But this duck studders all the time!!

  25. I’ve just found a video on WND where Obama’s own cabinet selection, Bill Richardson, told a group of Hispanics that Obama is the right choice for them as he,too, is an immigrant. Imagine that… wonder where he immigrated from? Kenya, perhaps? Check it out before it disappears as these videos have a strange way of doing., too.

  26. Obama has just opened up a public questions forum on his website.

    From the looks of the hard-left wingnuts owning the questions on there so far, I think we all need to ask the REAL questions – right on Obamas home turf.
