Blagojevich impeachment trial, January 28, 2009, IL governor Blagojevich impeached, Chicago Tribune editorial, Let’s make a deal, Chicago corruption, Pay to play, Illinois Senate, Blagojevich tapes, John Johnston

** Breaking News Below **

First the good news, The Chicago Tribune provided good coverage
of the Tony Rezko trial and actually provided some articles
critical of Obama and Blagojevich.

Now for the bad news.

The Chicago Tribune endorsed Obama and like most of the MSM
participated in slobbering over the “messiah”.

Now for the latest statement from the Tribune that leaves one
in a state of jaw dropping incredulity:

“We don’t know about the members of the Illinois Senate. But
we’ve heard enough.”

Ya think!!!!

The Chicago Tribune, located in, well duh, Chicago, has been well
aware of the corruption that Blagojevich and Obama were enmeshed
in and that is the best they can come with? No wonder readership
of most newspapers is down across the country.

Chicago Tribune editorial dated January 28, 2009:

“Let’s make a deal
January 28, 2009

For several days now, Rod Blagojevich has yodeled the same tune into
every microphone in sight (as opposed to any FBI microphones that
aren’t). You’ve heard his lyrics time and again: I haven’t listened
to the tapes . . . When you hear the whole story . . . The truth will
come out . . . If only I could call witnesses-witnesses-witnesses.

Now we’ve all heard four of the tapes. We’ve heard several elements
of one subplot in this debacle—the governor’s alleged effort to obtain
a contribution in return for signing a bill that would direct a
percentage of casino revenue to the horse-racing industry. More of the
truth now has come out. And we’ve heard one unwitting, unwilling
witness, the governor of Illinois: His voice boomed through the Illinois
Senate chamber Tuesday as senators listened to the recordings.

The tapes don’t sizzle with the melodrama a screenwriter would script.
Stitch these minutes of conversation into an episode of “24” and Jack
Bauer himself would doze off.

These conversations are, though, remarkable: They tug us inside the
dealing by which a governor allegedly agrees to trade an official act
for lucre. We’ll see what the state senators now conducting the
governor’s impeachment trial make of the tapes. To our ears, the
urgency and enthusiasm in the governor’s voice are as disturbing as
his evident desire to trade quid pro quo.”

  1. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is asking for comments AGAINST Rush Limbaugh for his comments regarding Obama’s policies.

    Wonder if they will recognize supportive comments?

  2. Another name for Barry Soetoro used at Occidental College!

  3. “He transferred to Columbia University and dove into his studies, living what he described as a hermetic existence. He read, studied, went for long walks and slept. He also changed his name, or rather how he was referred to, back to Barack.(21) “Going to New York was really a significant break,” Obama said. “It’s when I left a lot of stuff behind.”(22)”

    Good Morning – Excellent post! One day the dam will break.

    I have a new post up:

    ‘Obama Political Correctness’ Leading To A Very Dangerous ‘Islamic Political Correctness’.

    January 28, 2009 by zachjonesishome

    The BOPAC Report –
    Islamic ‘political correctness’ seems to be taking over our reason and resolve. How far can this go in America? Unfortunately, it is likely that it could go very far given that most Americans appear to be asleep at the switch. American’s are tired and just want the ‘Change Fairy’ to take care of it all. There is no ‘Change Fairy’. America and the world are faced with a patient, determined adversary. Islamic terrorists/radicals have made substantial progress in Great Britain, Denmark and Minnesota towards their goal of establishing Sharia law throughout the world….

  5. My gut feeling right now — not guilty.

    Why?

    Every legislator in the world heard themselves on the only tapes that have been played, and until the total package of tapes are out, they will look like absolute fools whenever the rest of the tapes evenutally get played.

    They need 40 votes to convict. Right now, I don’t think that they have them.

  6. Bob.
    There is one hitch. The indictment and trial is coming.

  7. I called Senator Lugar’s office this morning about the stimulus package–at first the lady taking the call was very nice. Then I asked if there was some way to get Obama’s picture taken off the US flag–guess what? She hung up on me. That’s our leadership at work. Say anything negative about the “Messiah” and you get hung up on.

  8. you want his mug off the flag?

    burn it

    now

  9. Jacqlyn Smith

    Brenda—-I have called Harry Reid, John Ensign, John McCain,Nancy Pelousy, Dina Titus….none of them hang up on me because they know I will keep calling back. I call them once or twice a week just to let them know that I am keeping an eye on them!!! Don’t let them ignore you….demand a response!

    mrje—I went to that DNC sight…I never saw a petition but I left a comment in defense of Rush. They will probably count that as a signature but anything they say is BOGUS because I didn’t sign anything. I also let them know that payback is a BITCH>>>>kind of like when they wanted our troops to loose the Iraq War!

  11. CW —

    One hitch — you’re right, exactly right — and we need about 535 more of these indictments and trials, and then 1 more for the top dog, and about 9 more for SCOTUS.

    We will probably have to wait for 2010 for most of them, and be able to have some very good replacements alreadt lined up to take their places.

    But, your right — only the case against Blago is very, very weak — and he knows it.

    When he offered to talk, they told him they were not going to listen to anything he has to say.

    So, he got this notion in his head that if he talks on TV, then he can maybe get a book deal, and spill the beans that way.

    Google the the fourth branch of the government we the people a nice read.

  13. I’m not sure if this has been posted here.

  14. Hi CW,

    My comments having been posting since my last protest. lol Thanks!

    Someone replied back to me to give it up, he was born in hawaii, so i replied, great were you at the birth? You see Oprah was duped 2 times recently by books deals from people who were total frauds and she rebuked them, Bill Clinton lied to over 300 million people about monica leweinsky, Micael Vick llied about his involvement with dogfighting, Heck i believed Milli Vanilli songs only to find them lipsynched. Oj,Richard Nixon’ I’m not a crook”, Chester Arthur lied about birth records, and of course Rosie Ruiz the woman who claimed victory by winning the boston marathon all the people and reporters were duped until they found out much later she hopped on a bus to victory lane, Cheating is a way of life for people who will do it till someone catches them, God is the great uncoverer of all things’ everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give a account ‘ hebrews 4

  16. Impeachment of the Gov, but no indictment yet? I say – Lets hear “all” the tapes, and not just snipplets of them.

    To all politicans, they are ‘all’ innocent of course, and I don’t think Blago is any different, but until they can prove to me that they aren’t any worse, then a fair trial should be awarded to Blago…

    They don’t want them tapes out, nor do they want witnesses called, of course not.. lol It’s almost comical the way they are impeaching him at high speed.

    This government is so corrupt it’s not funny. Have we actually been living with this much corruption for this long without noticing it? Geesh, I’m mortified at how much we are finding out these days… I feel like I need a bullet proof vest in my closet instead of jeans…

    But okay guys…. Time to get serious… We’re talkin about a “Class action suit” against Obama and others for BC, and also instead of going through the SC, we use the Federal Court system… Who is in?

  17. Bob.
    I promise you.
    The case against Blago is very strong.
    I have done much reading and writing on the subject.
    PS-The real question is can we trust the DOJ and will Fitzgerald
    pursue Obama.

  18. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/jan/27/obamas-blank-screen/

    I hope everyone but especially politicians are reading this one, over and over again. And over again if necessary. I hope everyone understands the scope of this man’s deceptive intents.

  19. Most of the CNN viewers know pork when they see it!
    Read the comments to this CNN news story.

    Obama: ‘We don’t have a moment to spare’
    Posted: 11:53 AM ET
    From CNNMoney.com’s David Goldman

    President Obama spoke after meeting with a dozen CEOs.
    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) – In a final push before the House votes on an economic stimulus package, President Obama said Wednesday that the country needs immediate action to solve rampant job loss.
    Obama spoke after meeting with a dozen CEOs including Sam Palmisano of IBM and Dave Cote of Honeywell.
    “The businesses that are shedding jobs to stay afloat … and all those who live in fear that theirs will be the next job cut — they need help now,” Obama said from the White House. “They are looking to Washington for action — bold and swift.”

  20. Very good article venice.

    Can somebody please tell Mr. O that the socialist experiment failed.
    Many many years ago.
    Actually many years before the wall fell in my home town.

    I am from West-Berlin, but what opened up to us in 1989 was a bancrupt country that had kept his citizens in prison.
    There was no vision left, expect the propaganda against the “imperialistic West”.

    And millions of people that were robbed of any sense of responsibility for their own lives.
    Pretty much like freed slaves they came to the West.

    America must wake up!
    I understand that people were upset with Bush.
    Since I followed this election cycle from the Caucus cheatings to race card playin’ and Palin bashing.
    I’ve seen the DNC calling themselves democratic, but having Super delegates that count more.
    I’ve seen a whole race of people refusing to judge a man by his character, but are just falling for pigments.

    Woud You all mind and turn Your brains back on?
    This is the twilight zone.

  21. even the ruskies know the truth !

    and they will use it as blackmail over obama

    http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/106972-1/

  22. da verg,

    Someone needs to tell Pravda their lawsuit count is off. Try close to 30 lawsuits attempted or in motion right now.

    And these are the ones we know about.

  23. Blago is the sacrifical lamb in trade to ignore Obama crimes.

    usa patriots shout

  24. Amidst the stress, it is important to smile so here ya go:

    Late Show Top Ten

    Top Ten Ways Rod Blagojevich Can Improve His Image

    10. Star in new television series, “America’s Funniest Haircuts”
    9. Quit politics and become a fat, lovable mall cop
    8. Start pronouncing last name with Jerry Lewis-like “BLAGOOOOYYYYYJEVICH”
    7. Offer a Senate seat with no money down, zero percent interest
    6. Team up with John Malkovich and Erin Brockovich for hot Malkovich-Brockovich-Blagojevich sex tape
    5. Change his name to Barod Obamavich
    4. Safely land an Airbus on the Hudson River
    3. I don’t know . . . how about showing up for his impeachment trial?
    2. Wear sexy dresses, high heels, and say, “You Betcha!” a lot
    1. Uhhh . . . resign?

  25. That Top Ten I posted above was from the David Letterman Show, not me! Just so ya know, I’m not that clever! Or is it that I don’t have 14 joke writers on my staff. Anyway, I thought we could all use a little break from all this horror.

  26. “4. Safely land an Airbus on the Hudson River”

    LOL!

  27. I am really hoping that the NITWIT Democrats try badmouthing Rush,and Hannity. They will be talking themselves right into their demise. I beleive that neither Rush or Hannity are slouches at what they do, and the Democrats will emerge from the fracas with an awful lot of cuts,scrapes,and contusions which they wouldn’t have received if they had just kept their pieholes closed. Between MMMMMSSSSS. Pelosi, and Harry Reid there is a very visible intelligence quotient of 20. In adding that of Obama we get 21. If the Dems are smart they will steer a wide course around Rush, and Hannity.
