Tony Rezko is out of “the hole.”

The convicted businessman — poised to become a crucial witness in
the massive corruption case against ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich — was
quietly moved out of a downtown jail and into another facility in
mid-December.
Authorities seeking Rezko’s cooperation pushed for the move after
Rezko complained about being held in the tough confines of solitary
imprisonment, known as “the hole,” even as he was providing information
to prosecutors.

Records show Rezko was released Dec. 16 from the Metropolitan
Correctional Center in downtown Chicago.

Kim Widup, the U.S. marshal in Chicago, confirmed that Rezko was
relocated.

“We have moved him into another institution,” Widup said.”

  1. The noose tightens around the usurper’s neck.

    Blago will sing like a canary when they get around to him.

    They might want to keep a cell open for Roland Burris as well. He has already passed coded messages publicly that he knows too much.

    They’ll have to be “sequestered” somewhere safe or the Othugs and their Babylonian handlers will off them both.

  2. Could the Chicago mob be coming apart? Has Rezko developed a bad case of diarrhea of the mouth? If he has then we can look for a lot of things to happen. Rezco seems to be a central figure within several Chicago mob enterprises. It would seem that when one of these enterprises are breached the rest will fall like dominos. Hopefully the first to fall will be who we all know.

  3. Now all we need is for Blago to start singing. Might happen before Rezko even gets done. I would guess that an endless supply of paper will be needed to record the Adventures of REZ-BLAG.

  4. READ THIS COMMENT FROM Ms. KORECKI’S ARTICLE:

  5. Greetings!

    The Daley Administration never was interested in cleaning up the corruption in the Hired Truck Program. They were only interested in managing the cover up. Any money that was collected by Bob Benson was an additional irritation to the Daley insiders that wanted business as usual to be restored. The Hired Truck corruption was only a small portion of the overall Daley Administration Managed Corruption in Chicago. Yes, I said Daley Administration managed corruption. The managed corruption is everywhere. For decades the Daley family had little worry about detection of their family generated corruption. The appointment of Patrick Fitzgerald an outsider rocked the boat. There is substantially enough currently available and offered to Patrick Fitzgerald indict Daley and a score of his current and former high placed Aids. It is however baffling why he has been reluctant to proceed against Daley. Absolutely nothing of substance has transpired since the day that the Sorich Conviction was announced. I will write more on that later.

    I personally witnessed the overt corruption in the Water Department. I reported it as an Assessor inside of Water Collection opening new accounts and dispatching Field Assessors and Plumbing Inspectors to investigate properties that were illegally not metered or those that were not paying a bill at all. The response was to threaten my life and job. I found millions of dollars that were not being collected in Water Collection from thousands of properties. Virtually none of it has ever been collected even though the Daley Administration has had a substantial portion of the corruption information since 1998. The Daley Administration was not interested in collecting lost revenue in the Water Department and investigating the fraud involved by Water Department employees that had been carefully placed by the Daley Administration in positions to actually protect the water thieves and those that were eliminating billing for friends, family and personal gain from being discovered.

    When I came under attack for dispatching plumbing inspectors and field assessors to investigate properties that were not paying for water service or substantially underpaying I notified the Mayor of Chicago repeatedly in a series of letters sent VIA Certified Mail with a return receipt. The Mayor of Chicago was notified of the corruption in detail. The response was complete silence. I should relate that I have been told that these letters were among the documents that were seized by Federal Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald. I can not substantiate that Fitzgerald has them, because I am waiting 7 years and 28 days for an FBI Agent that he sent to talk to me. He must have been from out of town or got mugged on the way to see me. Fitzgerald has had at least 45 pages of my corruption records sent to him VIA Fax on December 13, 2001. He politely responded that the FBI would contact me. Subsequent letters complaining about the non responsive FBI in Chicago sent VIA Certified Mail – Return Receipt have received no response. Telephone calls to the FBI received outrageous responses from those answering the telephone and in one case from a Chinese woman pretending to be an FBI Agent. Perhaps I got Daley’s Office of Governmental Affairs by mistake.

    Daley’s former Inspector General Alexander Vroustouris and Corporation Council Maura Mutz AKA Georges and their offices actually participated in the cover up of the theft of municipal revenue and the fraud in the Water Department. The Chicago Inspector General’s Office under Vroustouris and the Corporation Counsel’s office along with other elements of the Daley Administration actually engaged in racketeering, obstruction of justice, fraud, and mail fraud to cover up the criminal activity occurring in the Water Department. Naturally Mutz AKA Georges and Vroustouris will both deny my accusation if they should be confronted. I challenge both of them to take a polygraph exam if they refute their activities. I wrote letters to Daley and all 50 Chicago Aldermen explaining why Vroustouris should be fired as Inspector General and then prosecuted. Naturally I got no response from the Mayor or any of the 50 Aldermen many of which I have known for decades. Not one was willing to rock the boat and ask for an investigation. Those that are attorneys should remember their responsibilities as officers of the court in regard to corruption.

    When Vroustouris was finally replaced by Inspector General David Hoffmann I provide Hoffmann with several hundred pages of bound documentation on the corruption taking place in the Water Department. I also offered to provide more. To date the offer of more information on the corruption inside of the Water Department has not been answered. The cover up continues.

    Unfortunately the cover up has even extended to the News Media in Chicago. While trucks that make noise and sound bites have been popularly featured, complex managed corruption inside of the Water Department and the “Hitler or Stalin” like tactics used by the Daley Administration to cover up the existence of the criminal activity has not garnered much attention. Perhaps it has looked like too much work for many of the media people that I have talked to. Since the Daley Administration has controlled everything from aldermanic appointments of more than 60% of the City Council, to judicial appointments and slating of candidates for most offices it would also be feasible that the fifth floor of city hall is also controlling editorial boards that do not allow most reporters to investigate and publish corruption articles. I should publish the list of reporters and media people that have ignored the most significant amount of Chicago corruption, theft of municipal revenue and fraud from an insider in a sensitive position.

    My contention is that the corruption is massive. It is also continuing and growing instead of diminishing with the 46 plus convictions secured by the Federal Attorneys. There are not enough Federal Attorneys or FBI Agents in the entire United States to tackle all of the Daley Administration corruption. Unfortunately since President George Bush decided that he would travel to Chicago to have his birthday party here with Mayor Richard M. Daley, I have witnessed no indictments or serious investigations into the Daley Administration organized corruption. Is the Daley Administration now above the law?

    When the President of Mexico was invited to Chicago, where was the Federal Attorney? Was Daley conspiring with the President of Mexico to block extradition of Marco Morales the federal witness that fled to Mexico to avoid testimony that might lead to an indictment of Daley? How could the United States Attorney General miss such an inappropriate meeting? Perhaps he was too busy trying to give Patrick Fitzgerald falsified performance rating. Still I can not believe that Daley got away with witness tampering.

    While Patrick Fitzgerald has produced a significant number of indictments and convictions he has entirely ignored the Dirty Dick Daley Mob Institutionalized Corruption since the Bush Daley birthday party. Why????? Again I ask, is the Daley Administration above the law? If not I will publicly offer to give you a Chicago city corruption tour.

    I will begin the tour for Fitzgerald and Grant on the south east corner of Broadway and Surf Streets. I will tell you to look at the building with 5 restaurants and a beauty salon that is 25 years old. It is a nice building. Then I will tell you that in the 25 years that the building is on this corner with 5 restaurants and a beauty salon that it has managed to not pay for even one glass of water. In 25 years of records I can not find any payment of property taxes on this building worth as much as $3 million dollars. What I do find are a long sequence of bankruptcy filings. Every time that a bankruptcy is filed the property is bought for taxes in another company name. The actual owner’s name, the man that collects the rent never has his name on the property record. The tax deeds issued are all sent to the same office of the man that collects the rent. He always collects the rent. He never pays for water and taxes on a $3 million dollar building.

    Once this property actually had the water shut off for non payment of the bill. It had been posted for water service termination for non payment of $15,000.00 in water billing. The man that collects the rent went to the Water Department at 333 S. State Street in the same building where Bob Benson worked. The real owner issued a $2,000.00 check and was able to have the water service restored. Naturally the check bounced and no effort was ever made to collect the money for the bad check or prosecuted the man for issuing a bad check. Instead the clerk that had issued the shut off order was abruptly transferred to another undesirable job for offending a Daley Mob insider who has mastered the art of not paying for water or taxes. The real owner of this property probably has more than a thousand properties in Chicago during the last 25 years and I suspect that most of them had similar situations with non payment of water billing and elimination of taxes. How does he get away with defrauding the City of Chicago? Who are the cooperating conspirators that are allowing him to run up huge water bills without paying? Who is the Chicago city attorney that files Water Department liens against the property, but makes no effort to have the water shut off or the bill collected? This is the same Water Department attorney sent to talk to me by former Deputy Commissioner Viria Holland when I reported the billing irregularity to her in 1998. She was outraged that I thought that there was a problem with this account. I knew about the problems because I had been sent to read the meter prior to the water service termination. I did not know at the time that the attorney was involved in putting liens on the property. I have since learned that this attorney’s husband is on the Staff of Mayor Richard M. Daley. Who does this little man with such a successful plot pay inside the Daley Administration to continue the process? Federal Attorney Fitzgerald and FBI Agent in Charge Grant should meet me on the corner of Broadway and Surf and take my tour.

    A second stop on the corruption tour could be the building at 1546 W. Cortez that is or was owned by Ernie Wish, Daley’s former head of the Department of Revenue and the Boot Meister that established the crooked Department of Revenue boot program to extort money from Chicagoans for phony violations. This program is just another version of the Greylord corruption. Meanwhile Ernie has a building that has no record of paying for water service. The only available record was a line on a 1948 map showing that there was an account at the address and the meter control number. In 1998 the water theft was discovered while he was Director of Revenue for the City of Chicago and Head of the DePaul University Alumni Association. Suddenly he changed jobs and became Illinois State Superintendent of Public Instruction for Governor George Ryan. Ernie was back billed $4,600.00 for the 4 flat based on a fixture count for 5 years. Nothing was however paid. He got another year of free water before any water was paid for.

    I could take the Feds to Bridgeport Village and show them how it all sprung up without permits or metered water service and probably without property index numbers to pay taxes. I could show them the homes of the Daley insiders. I could take them to the north side and show them several thousand relatively new properties that were constructed by a company owned by an Alderman that have been granted plumbing permits that violate Municipal Code and show them the absence of water meters for many square blocks with many properties lacking property index numbers. There is no end to the Institutionalized Corruption. It has only escalated during the time that Fitzgerald has been in Chicago. For every Daley mobster that he indicts there are 100 more that he should be investigating.

    If Fitzgerald and Grant do not want to go so far away from their offices I could even give them a tour of 333 S. State Street and show them what records to seize. I could take them to the Recorder of Deeds office and show them what documents that they need to obtain. I could show them the desk where the unmarked envelops full of cash were dropped for the Dirty Dick Daley Mob Bagman. I could take them to the Jardine Filtration Plant past the sleeping guards hired by Daley and show them where the records of corruption for many Water Department accounts are hidden. I could take them to the Building Department Conference Room and show them where more of the Water Department records of corruption are hidden. I could show them where the falsified performance ratings are stored that were dictated from the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs to eliminate job holders for Victor Reyes to have positions to fill for his Hispanic Democratic Organization the name chosen for Daley’s new political friends in his attempt to circumvent the Shakman Accord. I can even give them the list of performance ratings for each of the Water Rate Takers and Assessors pre-determined and dictated to supervisors. I could take them for a stroll down Taylor Street and show them how the family of a Cook County Circuit Judge is allowed to have an interest in a property that has no property tax records or property index number. How do you own a 4 flat in Chicago and not pay any taxes? I could take them to the old Taylor Street office of Daley’s Alderman, Burt Natarus who operated his Taylor Street office along with Cook County States Attorney Dick Devine in a building that was illegally not metered for water service but also has a rear building that has not paid taxes in my lifetime, just like the building directly east of it. I could even take them down the street to Leona’s Taylor Street a restaurant with good pizza that had no ice water from opening day until 2000. There only water was “hot water” stolen by pretending to be a single family home with a senior citizen instead of a restaurant serving ice water and using a lot of water. The property has had a history of not paying for water. Back in 1974 this restaurant was Joe Prisco’s Coffee Shop which was the first Illinois Lottery Outlet. In 1974 the property was already stealing water. The Daley Administration has not only defended providing this restaurant with virtually free water for 3 decades, but have blatantly provided more free water and no back billing after discover of the 30 year water theft. After the property was discovered without a water meter operating under the most common name on Chicago Water Department records: Owner/Occupant a member of the owner’s family that ran Customer Service in the Water Department at 333 S. State suddenly changed jobs and was hidden away near Commissioner Judy Rice at the Jardine Water Treatment Facility handling Water Department Personnel Records. This business and the property owners received more than 20 years of virtually free water. Their Prodigal son was promoted up and finally hidden away at 333 S. State on the 4th floor with a high paying job that resulted in an enormous pension. He too is in the Daley family database from a family related to the D’Arco family. This is an example of theft of municipal revenue and fraud inside of the Water Department. It is not an isolated case. There are thousands more. The Daley Administration of father and son have created these water revenue thefts and Richard M. Daley and his Administration work more diligently to cover up the criminal activity than they do on anything else.

    As for Bob Benson and Inspector General David Hoffmann, they were only intended to be “window dressing” to give the illusion that the Daley Administration was actually trying to clean up the corruption. Unfortunately some of us know the truth and have paid dearly from the Dirty Dick Daley Mob retaliation. It is Institutionalized Corruption controlled by the Mayor’s Office and his flock of genuflect and steal political hacks.

    A perfect example of the overt abuse of a city employee is the case of Frank Coconate before the rigged Chicago Personnel Board. I have witnessed most of the Personnel Board Hearing. All of the Personnel Board Members were appointed by Richard M. Daley and the Hearing Officer’s serve at his whim. Coconate an exemplary employee was fired from his job in the Water Department with false charges. His attorney was barred from attending his preliminary Water Department hearing by the same Chicago Attorney that files the liens against the property at Broadway and Surf and then eliminates the water billing when the man buys his property at a tax sale in a different name. Coconate was fired and the Personnel Board sustained the complaint brought against him with falsified reports and testimony. He was fortunate to have two super attorneys represent him. Terry Brunner the former head of the Chicago Better Government Association came out of retirement in New Mexico and has been flying to Chicago to represent Coconate ‘pro bono” along with a terrific attorney named Frank Avila. The principal witness against him Jan Peska quit her city job and moved to Florida after she had been subpoenaed. The City of Chicago knew that she was quitting her job and moving out of state and did nothing to force her to testify in accordance with the subpoena. This was just another one of the Daley Administration’s “good people” as he calls them. For the Daley Administration this case is just another serious breach of the law. This Personnel Board head has a vested interest in doing Daley’s bidding. He is receiving several million dollars for funding programs in his church from the Daley Administration. The other Personnel Board members have similar conflicts as do the hearing officers. The entire Personnel Board should be eliminated at a substantial savings. Their proceedings are a farce. Federal Attorney Fitzgerald and FBI Agent in Charge Grant should be introduced to the Personnel Board also. The Personnel Board only rules the way that the Daley Administration wants them to rule. They are an administrative tool of the Pervasive Personnel Conspiracy that has cost the City of Chicago probably more than $20,000,000.00 in legal fees and settlement of the Shakman Accord law suit. Michael Shakman and friends saw the violations of the Shakman Accord law suit from the captured Sorich List, but they neglected to comprehend just how the Daley Administration was using the Inspector General’s Office under Alexander Vroustouris, the Personnel Board, and the Corporation Counsel’s Office under Maura Mutz AKA Georges, plus special employees in each department used to target city employees for elimination. This was the “dark side” of the Pervasive Personnel Conspiracy. The Sorich List was only a small snapshot of the operation that existed. The missing list could be reconstructed from the records of investigations that took place under Inspector General Alexander Vroustouris and the employees that were brought before the Personnel Board. There were not enough vacant city jobs to supply the minions of new friend of Richard M. Daley marching for Victor Reyes, and pretending to be precinct captains. Employees had to be eliminated to provide jobs for the Sorich Clout List and the various lists kept by Victor Reyes before Sorich replaced him. How many people were illegally eliminated from employment with the City of Chicago by the Dirty Dick Daley Gestapo operation and their complimentary kangaroo court called the Chicago Personnel Board? From my perspective most of these folks belong in an orange jump suit, and just not Robert Sorich. It is amazing that such an operation could exist in the United States without serious prosecution. Of course when you control every facet of life in Chicago like Daley does getting him prosecuted and convicted is absurdly difficult.

    Meanwhile the City of Chicago is operated for friends family and personal gain. Friend of the Daley Administration often do not pay for water service, taxes or business license. They often do not obtain building permits or obtain permits to attach to municipal water lines. They routinely violate municipal codes. Recently thousands of new properties have been constructed city wide without having required water meters. Many of them do not even have Cook County Property Tax Index Numbers so they are not paying property taxes even several years after they have been built. Other properties have been built without paying for water service. Even after more than 50 convictions since Patrick Fitzgerald came to Chicago it has been business as usual in city that wants to have an Olympic Games. Chicago is so crooked that if an Olympic Games came to town the Daley Administration would hall away all of the Gold Medals just like they are preparing to do with Municipal Pension Funds. Where else could you appoint members of the Pension Boards and then have them vote to give your nephew control of $67 million in Municipal Pension Funds to invest and even give him $996,000.00 every year to make the investments. If most of us went out and tried to borrow $67 million to invest the first question that we would hear before the horrendous laugh would be what collateral do you have? In the case of the Daley nephew he got a $67 million dollar interest free loan and was paid nearly a million dollars a year to cart off Municipal Pension Funds without having any liability if he loses all of the money, steals it, or gets it stolen or loses it in the construction site at the old Chicago Defender building whose owner he has given $1 million in Municipal Pension Funds to purchase the building and renovate it into a restaurant. This is the same Daley insider that has the restaurant in Millennium Park that was not paying for gas, water, garbage removal or taxes. It is the same restaurant owner that was operating a restaurant out of a Chicago Fire Station without paying for water and probably pretending to be a fire station for tax purposes.

    There is no question that Federal Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald and FBI Agent in Charge Grant need a Chicago City Tour. I will also offer a tour to any legitimate industrious reporter or Chicago Newspaper Editorial Board member that is not on the Daley payroll.
    Short of occupation by federal troops and invoking RICCO Statutes against the City of Chicago I see no solution to the Institutionalized Corruption of the Dirty Dick Daley Mob.

    Poor Chicago deserves better government. The poor tax payers deserve a level playing field that does not reward Daley insiders free water and free taxes for decades requiring them to pay more.

    After the troops and RICCO attorneys arrive Chicago should be thinking of eliminating 35 of the 50 Alderman positions plus their staffs and more than 30 of the Streets and Sanitation Ward Yards. Chicago should be eliminating most of the Assistant Commissioners and all of the phony titled positions of the State Representatives and State Senators that are double dipping at the public trough. There should be term limitations for all Chicago Aldermen and elimination of the Mayor’s office in favor of a paid city manager. The more than 29 people in the Mayor’s office receiving more than $100,000.00 a years should be eliminated. The entire Chicago Corporation Counsel should be replaced with a court jester and a dozen clowns. After what I have witnessed by attending Frank Coconate’s Personnel Board hearing the jester and clowns would be a better use of municipal funds. The Office of Intergovernmental Affairs and all Chicago offices outside of Chicago should be immediately eliminated. The “genuflect and steal” politicians of Chicago should be excommunicated. Daley should repay the City of Chicago the legal fees and damages awarded in his Pervasive Personnel Conspiracy. All of the phony charities should begin to pay for water and taxes. Allowing them to receive free water and tax exemptions forces all of the other Chicago Tax Payers to pay more. The TIFs should also be eliminated. Every contract issued by the Daley Administration should be carefully examined by Federal Attorneys. There have been very few contract, if any during the Daley Administration that were legitimate unless a mistake was made. The $137 million in minority set aside contracts awarded to James Duff and his mother were known to Daley. Patricia Green Duff’s mother, Alice Green was a Daley insider supervising the telephones in City Hall for Mayor Richard J. Daley who was put in office by the Old First Ward Organization of Bruno “The Bomber” Roti a Capone henchman. This was the same Alfonse Capone for whom Henry Guilfoyle the brother in law of Richard J. Daley worked. Heine Guilfoyle ran an area of the north side near Armitage and Pulaski for Capone plus he managed the Penthouse a super sized speak easy on north Pine Grove.

    The connections between the Roti and D’Arco family of the Old First Ward and the Daley family was complicated with the marriage of Cook County Commissioner John Daley to Mary Lou Briatta the daughter of Old First Ward Outfit Gambling Boss. This marriage and a second Daley/Briatta marriage created some unusual circumstances for the family of Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley. Would you believe that I have the Daley genealogy database and now it includes such Chicago luminaries as Al Capone, Frank Mariote, Bruno “The Bomber” Roti, John D’Arco, Joey “The Clown” Lombardo, Frank Nitti, Tony Accardo, Joe “The Builder” Andriacchi, Harry Aleman the famous Chicago hit man, Frank Carusso, 26th Street Outfit Crew Chief and labor leader, Dominic Senese a lieutenant in the Joey Lombardo family under Jackie Cerone and Joseph Aiuppa. Many of the allied families in this database are prominently represented on the Sorich List of the Pervasive Personnel Conspiracy. A major portion of the management of Chicago’s Institutionalized Corruption emulate from the Daley – Roti – D’Arco – Capone – Lombardo – Mariote – Accardo – Senese – Nitti – Andriacchi – and Allied Families Genealogy. I should note that there are many good people that are members of these families and other Allied Families. Linking the families through marriages helps to explain how corruption, job selections, and clout work in the City of Chicago. From Capone until today the only Chicago Outfit head that is not currently in the Daley Genealogy Database is Sam Giancanna, but I can even connect him with just a few more obituaries.

    It has become rather obvious that Daley has been off limits to Patrick Fitzgerald since the Bush birthday party in Chicago on the very day that the Sorich conviction was announced.

    Although President elect Obama and Senator Dick Durbin have both stated that they want to keep Fitzgerald in Chicago I do not see it happening. I anticipate that Dick Durbin will get a telephone call from Daley telling him the name of new Federal Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois who will naturally be a village idiot with a law degree that will naturally not see Dirty Dick Daley Mob corruption.

    In conclusion: No, Bob Benson and Inspector General David Hoffmann you are not expected to collect the purposely lost revenue or investigate corruption. It all emulates from the fifth floor of City Hall and Dirty Dick Daley, son of Boss and it is protected. You are merely a stone in the Mayor’s shoe as Frank Coconate and I have been.

  14. I Am the Flag of the United States of AMERICA

    I am the flag of the United States of America.
    My name is Old Glory.
    I fly atop the world’s tallest buildings.
    I stand watch in America’s halls of justice.
    I fly majestically over institutions of learning.
    I stand guard with power in the world.
    Look up and see me.

    I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice.
    I stand for freedom.
    I am confident.
    I am arrogant.
    I am proud.
    When I am flown with my fellow banners,
    My head is a little higher,
    My colors a little truer.
    I bow to no one!
    I am recognized all over the world.
    I am worshipped – I am saluted.
    I am loved – I am revered.
    I am respected – and I am feared.
    I have fought in every battle of every war for more then 200 years. I was flown at Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Shiloh and Appomattox.
    I was there at San Juan Hill, the trenches of France,
    in the Argonne Forest, Anzio, Rome and the beaches of Normandy.
    Guam, Okinawa, Korea and KheSan, Saigon, Vietnam know me.
    I’m presently in the mountains of Afganistan and the hot and dusty deserts of Iraq and wherever freedom is needed.
    I led my troops, I was dirty, battleworn and tired,
    But my soldiers cheered me and I was proud.
    I have been burned, torn and trampled on the streets of countries I have helped set free.
    It does not hurt for I am invincible.
    I have been soiled upon, burned, torn and trampled in the streets of my country.
    And when it’s done by those Whom I’ve served in battle – it hurts.
    But I shall overcome – for I am strong.
    I have slipped the bonds of Earth and stood watch over the uncharted frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon.
    I have borne silent witness to all of America’s finest hours.
    But my finest hours are yet to come.
    When I am torn into strips and used as bandages for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
    When I am flown at half-mast to honor my soldier,
    Or when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent
    at the grave of their fallen son or daughter,

    I am proud.

    from Robert R. | Loxahatchee, FL

    Please forward my message to all who still love and respect me that I may fly proudly for another two hundred years

  15. Greta V.S. just interviewed Blago tonight.
    Blago is not hesitant about calling anyone
    as witnesses, including Emanuel and Obama.
    Blago wants to clear his name, play the tapes,
    and tell all. Blago just might be the answer
    to another issue at the top of the ladder as
    well. The Gov. mentioned that his security
    detail was “quickly” removed from his home
    after the impeachment verdict was reached.
    I hope Blago gets security for himself and
    family as he is in with a dangerous crowd.

    A Government of the People – by the Crooks – for the Crooks:

    Your post is fabulous information. It might be useful if we would all copy it… I’ll bet that if anything is desired by some to be removed from the net, what you have posted is a candidate.

    I wish you would have marketed it in your original post above. You were the second post of the blog. Your post appears not to have been opened until near the end here. This information rates a “HEY!! You won’t believe this… almost all of the top Obama and Clinton cronies group has been discovered to be in tax trouble or in violation of the law or possibly shady in some way.

    (hope I typed that correctly)
    The Illinois investigation should find a trail of rat turds that lead to Valerie Jarrett, who worked for Daley, and then to Obama.

  19. I read the comment tendered by Ms.Helga regarding the corruption and sleaze in Chicago. My wife and I lived in New York,during my US Navy service,in the early to mid fifties. Whenever I was home on leave I would look around and see a deteriorating borough. The city could have done a lot to improve ,or at least maintain the city. Unfortunately the city was under the control of a crooked mayor, and the same behavior gradually spread throughout the entire administration. Chicago or New York they both might as well be one and the same. I watched one after the other so called crack downs on crime etc. It would last a few weeks, a few small time crooks would be arrested, and that would usually be the end of the crackdown. Yet the mob went about their bookmaking, their tax rake offs,their prostitution clubs, etc,etc. It was business as usual. It wasn’t until the 70s that some progress was being made in cleaning up New York. At one point the Mob was really crippled when the top crime family boss was finally put away. From that point forward they began to fall. One or two at a time. Gradually organised crime fell considerably thru the 80s and 90s. Of course it hasn’t been totally eliminated. It is doubtful that all organised crime will ever be eliminated,either in Chicago or New York. It seems like for every one that is taken out two take his place. Until there is a need in every living soul in Chicago to clean out the scum,people like Daly,and his mob will continue to flourish. But you must realise that the Daly machine is a Democratic political force which the party aligns themselves with then tries to make everyone believe that Mayor Daly is GOD. If you say this too loudly,or too often, or at the wrong time there is a strong probability that the DALY GOON SQUAD will be dispatched to reorientate your head.

  20. Fernley Girl–
    You got it right when mentioned the trail that leads to Valerie Jarrett. While she is not of Iranian blood she does appear to be a sympathathizer. She was born in Shiraz,Iran and I think developed some very wealthy friends during her stay.One of them is Nadhmi Auchi who Obama is involved with via Rezko. It was from Auchi that I believe a very large portion of Obama’s campaign money came. He used two of his Pakistani friends from his Occidental days to manage his SMALL CONTRIBUTIONS FUND. They broke down the very large sums of money to less than $250.00 in every alleged contribution,then deposited it in the fund. Guess what “zero”accountability. They used names taken from telephone directories to attach to each alleged contribution. Cute huh! It didn’t take a rocket scientist to see through their little scheme. Sadly the Federal Election Commission failed to act even when they were GIVEN ALL THE INFO ON WHAT WAS GOING ON. With Valerie Jarrett now in the Top whitehouse aid position Ahmadinajad now has a direct connection to the Whitehouse,and without a doubt to our state,military,and nuclear secrets as well. Remember the Rosenbergs? Not such nice people. If you don’t know who they were, I will simply say that they were NUCLEAR SPIES who ultimately paid for their treason with their lives. I guess what I am saying is that no matter how nice a person is to your face,it is how they behave behind your back that counts.

  23. This is really important: STATE SOVEREIGNTY MOVEMENT

    This is possibly the worst nightmare for the communist usurper, who wants total dictatorial control over the nation. If states stand up and say “NO, we have our own National Guard and DO NOT WANT YOUR CIVILIAN DEFENSE FORCE HERE”, if states say we are a nation-state in a union bound by a Constitution but are SOVEREIGN, it’s all the better to keep the communist usurper more in line…

    …a compilation
    ——–

    Looks like OK, TX, NH, AZ are first in line asserting STATE SOVEREIGNTY, the real threat to the communist usurper and his puppeteers:

    Looks like New Hampshire (license plates say “Live Free or Die”) has fired a warning shot across the bow.

    The state legislature has introduced a resolution (gencourt dot state dot nh dot us/legislation/2009/HCR0006 dot html) to declare certain actions by the fed. govt. to be void and warning that certain future acts will be viewed as a “breach of peace” with the states themselves that risks “nullifying the Constitution.”

    Here’s an excerpt:

    “…That any Act by the Congress of the United States, Executive Order of the President of the United States of America or Judicial Order by the Judicatories of the United States of America which assumes a power not delegated to the government of United States of America by the Constitution for the United States of America and which serves to diminish the liberty of the any of the several States or their citizens shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States of America by the government of the United States of America. Acts which would cause such a nullification include, but are not limited to:

    I. Establishing martial law or a state of emergency within one of the States comprising the United States of America without the consent of the legislature of that State.

    II. Requiring involuntary servitude, or governmental service other than a draft during a declared war, or pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.

    III. Requiring involuntary servitude or governmental service of persons under the age of 18 other than pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.

    IV. Surrendering any power delegated or not delegated to any corporation or foreign government.

    V. Any act regarding religion; further limitations on freedom of political speech; or further limitations on freedom of the press.

    VI. Further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms including prohibitions of type or quantity of arms or ammunition; and

    That should any such act of Congress become law or Executive Order or Judicial Order be put into force, all powers previously delegated to the United States of America by the Constitution for the United States shall revert to the several States individually. Any future government of the United States of America shall require ratification of three quarters of the States seeking to form a government of the United States of America and shall not be binding upon any State not seeking to form such a government;…”

    OK State Rep to Reintroduce State Sovereignty Bill

    http://www.therightsideoflife.com/?p=3333
    ————

    Texas is right there with OK and NH

    http://www.texasnationalist.com/tnm/index.php

    and this…

    http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin192.htm

  24. Thank you for the State Sovereignty Movement info.

    “…perhaps Americans in a critical mass will fully awaken and mobilize themselves in organizationswith legal authority and the ability to exercise that authority to enforce the Constitution and laws of this country.”

    (a quote from this article:
    http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin192.htm)

    I am pleased to learn of this.

  25. Perhaps the easiest method to re-establish State Sovereignty WITHIN the perimeters of the present Constitution is for each State to adopt their own statutes providing for the”RECALL” by a 2/3 vote of both houses of their Legislatures of any U.S. Senator elected by the people of their State.

    This will NOT require any Constitutional Amendment, if after the “Recall” a new Senator is elected by the people in a special election (and not appointed by the Governor).

    The States that want to do this should act now, while the iron is hit with the Blago scandal, and the Governor appointments in Illinois, New York, and now New Hampshire.

    Can you imagine how much life will improve in each State of the Union, if each State had this simple authority, and they can take care of themselves without any Constitutional amendment?

    This will probably put immediate end to any “unfunded mandates” from Washington.

  26. This remains to be the case:

    The Joint Chiefs of Staff HAVE AN ABSOLUTE CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY to stand behind Guantanamo Military Judge James Pohl UNTIL OBAMA OVERCOMES “RES IPSA LOQUITUR” BY SUPPLYING HIS LONG FORM BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND PROVING HIS ELIGIBILITY TO BE PRESIDENT UNDER ARTICLE 2 OF THE US CONSTITUTION.

  27. Bob,

    Recall of federal repesentatives has been found unconstitutinal But… why not decertify them from running again from within a State? Not the same as what you suggest… House members would have two more years to mess things up, and Senate members six more, max… but the fear would be put into them.

  28. New AOL poll:

    How would you rate Obama’s transition so far?

    http://news.aol.com/political-machine/2009/02/04/hot-seat-obamas-transition/

  29. You are making way too much of the New Hampshire resolution.

    Any legislator can introduce a resolution. This resolution has 4 sponsors in the House and none in the Senate. There are 424 members of the NH House, which means less than 1% wanted their names associated with this.

    It has been assigned to committee and no action has been taken by committee.

    There are pending resolutions all over the political spectrum. For instance, there is one pending calling for the immediate withdrawal of all New Hampshire national guard troops from Iraq. HCR 8

    Democrats are in the majority in both houses of the New Hampshire legislature and there is a Democratic governor. This resolution is not going to be passed. As a resolution, it would have no legal effect anyhow.

  30. I was asked to paste this link again. I posted it yesterday,but unfortunately it was buried by a pile of newspapers..i’m re posting now as asked.

  31. TurnRight —

    I believe that Recall by a Popular Initiative and gathering signatures, etc., like we use here is Wisconsin, is unconstitutional.

    I do not believe that SCOTUS would find a “RECALL” by what would be by what would amount to an IMPEACHMENT by the Legislature without the need for a trial, for example,simply for failure to adequately represent the State’s interests in the “budgeting process,” to be unconstitutional, — since a State is one of the Federal components, and they have enormous RIGHTS reserved to each State.

  33. Ted—
    As an ex Navy person, and it will do my heart good to see if the joint chiefs have the testosterone to refuse to follow a direct Obama order. There is an article in the UCMJ which compells a refusal to follow an order if it is deemed to be an ILLEGAL order. Meaning an order issued by a person not authorised to do so.
    I have read that there are people who believe that Article 138 of the UCMJ may be used against Obama. It is doubtful that a civilian can be prosecuted under the UCMJ. While he is the CIC, I don’t believe that he is answerable to military justice. Again I say that it is in the Court of the People where we will win. All it takes is lots of world publicity. He will not be able to effectively fight a continuing exposee in the WORLD MEDIA.

  36. nawanawanga: I hope everyone reads your post above very carefully!

    It is extremely important that we copy and paste most of that post and send it to our governors, whether they are Dem or Repub. They may not be aware of it and they need to know.

    Frankly, I’m relieved … a little. First I thought all the Republicans were wearing diapers cuz they were pissing in their pants over the big OLiar. Turns out they have strength of conviction. But guess why? BECAUSE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE are calling, writing, emailing and faxing them! Do it! Express yourself! Express your discontent! Keep it brief, but do it often.

    Now I see some of the states are expressing themselves too. But remember, they are a reflection of their citizens’ outrage and demands.

    So be outraged and demand that YOUR state do the same. Copy and paste parts of that post and send it to your governor and both senators. We STILL have a voice! But don’t wait too long ….

  37. Thanks Jeff, I hope more states, Governors, State Representatives realize their sovereignty is in line to be threatened and removed by the communist usurper’s regime. Obama wants his own push-button domestic military force “as well funded as the current military” and some extra (more than now) concentration camps spread about.

    STATES BETTER HEADS UP

    Barky thinks he’s your anointed sovereign.
    President, just isn’t enough power for him, he’s going to go for it ALL…

    (Barky scrawled this into the Punahau cement in high school= one sick narcissistic pup)

  38. Just a reminder. THIS is the week the Senators are debating the “stimulus” package.

    Apparently our calls, emails, letters and faxes have had quite an effect on the senators. They are all over TV (Repubs and Dems too) saying that a lot needs to be removed from the plan.

    How lazy can a president be? Remember how he used to say he’s a good delegator? That’s another word for lazy when it comes to him. He knows how to threaten and scare people, but he leaves all the hard WORK to others. So we have to express ourselves regarding the bill that he didn’t even bother to write himself.

    You only have two senators. It will only take you a few minutes. Please BRIEFLY (they won’t read or listen to long diatribes) CALL, WRITE, EMAIL AND FAX them regarding the “spending bill”. Do all four!

    Oh, I’ll bet you have a million (or is it a trillion?) things you would like to fax to them! But my idea is to place one idea at a time into each fax. Be brief, but fax often!!!

    One for saying “Nancy Pelosi should be fired.”

    One for saying: “Obama is not a natural born citizen and therefore should not be our president. He should do the right thing and step down.”

    One for saying: “The ‘stimulus bill’ as it is will bankrupt our country. Cut it in half, or better yet, even less than that – strictly tax cuts and real jobs, and not just for construction workers!”

    Do it! Have fun!

  42. Jacqlyn Smith

    What happened to examining the budget line by line with a fine tooth comb to see where we can cut waste??? I think I heard Soetoro talk about doing this several times when spreding his campaign propaganda!!! Wouldn’t you do that first before trying to spend money on other programs if there are many that are not working??? Everyone knows in order to balance a budget whether your own or the Governments….you must cut out the waste and quit borrowing money!!! What is wrong with this picture??? We have morons running our government and ruining our lives!!!

    then Barry responded he would use both, or something to that effect

    Today on TV, a beekeeper was interviewed and this is what he said:

    Our bees are in trouble so that means our beekeepers are in trouble. I would like to get a bailout on my beekeeping company BUT I would rather take care of it on my own. Pollinators are calling beekeepers to bring bees to their apple orchards, for example, so we do need the bee insurance ($150 million) that’s in the stimulus bill. BUT the beekeeper emphasized, “BUT, I NEED TO TAKE CARE OF MY OWN BUSINESS WITHOUT GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION.”

  47. Here is the FAX number for the White House:

    FAX: 202-456-2461

    Please fax the whitehouse something like the following:

    President Obama,
    If I heard you say it once, I heard you say it fifty times – that you will take a scalpel to the federal budget and go “line by line” to eliminate all the excess.
    And yet you are pushing a tremendous spending bill without first cutting with your scalpel. Where is your scalpel? Did you leave it at the Lincoln Monument? Was it taken away with the Greek columns?
    Please do what you promised to do. Fulfill your campaign promises, President Obama. We are holding you accountable, just like you said you wanted to be held. And while you’re at it, be transparent.

    Thank you,
    An American Citizen (natural born, by the way)

  48. Please send this or something like this to each of your two senators — see below the line — and then I provided some fax numbers for you below it. LameCherry wrote parts of this, the rest are my own words:
    ——————————————————————————–

    Dear Senator _____________,

    Of course Nancy Pelosi knows there are only 240 million Americans and 60 million illegals in the United States, but the slip of 500 million Americans losing jobs, means of greater concern that her brain is slipping in the long hours of crunching trillion dollar kickbacks and the brain sprain revelation that Nancy feels she must scare Americans or the Obama spending hog spree will not be passed.
    Americans are wising up and not liking the bill.
    Please cut the spending bill in HALF or less and make it strictly for jobs and tax cuts.
    And by the way, Nancy Pelosi is doing a terrible job.
    Remember, there is another spending bill coming regarding the banks. Just how soon would you like to see this country bankrupt?
    And when is Obama going to use that scalpel he always spoke of to cut all excess federal expenditures?

    Thanks,
    A U.S. Citizen (natural born)

  57. Mrs Feinstein responding to my question:

    Dear Mrs. xxx:

    Thank you for writing to me about the current state of the economy, and the actions Congress may take to address this recession. I appreciate the time you took to write and welcome the opportunity to respond.

    As you know, in February 2008, Congress passed the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-185), which provided a tax refund directly to taxpayers in order to boost consumer spending. Congress also extended unemployment benefits to help those who have lost their jobs. Additionally, in October 2008, the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-343) was signed into law to provide liquidity to ailing financial markets and ease the flow of credit.

    To address the subprime mortgage crisis that has contributed to the downturn in the economy, I introduced legislation, along with Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL), known as the “S.A.F.E. Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008,” which was signed into law on July 30, 2008 as a provision of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-289). This important legislation will require all mortgage brokers and lenders to meet minimum national licensing standards in an effort to curb abusive lending.

    Additionally, I have been supportive of a proposal put forth by Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) Chairman Sheila Bair that has been helpful in modifying mortgages owned by IndyMac Bank. To that end, I have introduced legislation known as the “Systematic Foreclosure Prevention and Mortgage Modification Act” (S. 73), which would allow the FDIC to carry out this program nationwide. Specifically, it would require that mortgages in cases where workout plans are more cost effective than foreclosure be modified to make monthly payments more affordable. The FDIC estimates that under this program approximately 1.5 million foreclosures may be avoided.

    The Leadership of the Senate and House of Representatives is currently working with President Barack Obama to determine the best way to stabilize our struggling economy. I hope that an economic recovery bill will focus on the creation of new jobs, and tangible, well-targeted investments in infrastructure, especially because California’s unemployment rate has increased to over eight percent.

    The Senate and House of Representatives are likely to try to work quickly so that an economic recovery bill can be ready for President Obama to sign into law as soon as possible. Please know that I will keep your comments and suggestions in mind as Congress considers further options to stimulate the economy.

    Once again, thank you for writing. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841. Best regards.

    Sincerely yours,

    Dianne Feinstein
    United States Senator

    Further information about my position on issues of concern to California and the Nation are available at my website http://feinstein.senate.gov/public

  58. blabla in other words

  59. Thanks to Rezko and the others, we all new Obama couldn’t deliver on his promise of a more ethical administration.
    http://www.smellytourist.wordpress.com

  60. More Glenn Beck on socialism. Well, he is entertaining.

  61. Obama does not know the meaning of ethical. If he have any, he would not be in the White House parading as this country Commander-in-Chief.
    Evidently, all his croonies do not know the meaning either.

  62. cw, what is going on with all the states claiming sovereignty over the federal government? Is it over for big government?

  63. The States are having a temper tantrum over Federal spending and unfunded Federal mandates that have totally wrecked their ability to balance their budgets — California being just 1 example.

    The country is only 2 States short of calling for a Constitutional Convention, and it the State legislatures that are leading the way toward calling for a Constitutional Convention.

    SCOTUS has given Congress the authority to ignore any calls for a Constitutional Convention — so a few of the States are telling the Federal government that Washington works for them, and not the other way around.

    We’ll see if this idea picks up any momentum from other regions of the country. There is certainly more activity now than there used to be.

    This is why I am in favor TWO simple measures to being about a re-balancing of our Federal system —

    1. Repeal of the 16th Amendment by authorizing that the income tax can only be levied by a State; the Feds can collect the Fair Tax, which you only pay if you spend — this will make the Feds “pro-business.”

    2. Allow each State legislature to “recall” both of its State Senators, so that Senators remember they represent their States, and forget the idea that they are a clubhouse with 100 Little League Presidents. This will give the States more control over the Federal budgeting process, ending a “one-size” fits all approach to government.

  64. Just a reminder: if you send a fax every day it will add to the thousands they are receiving … GOOD!

    Here is the FAX number for the White House:

    FAX: 202-456-2461
    Be brief, but fax often!!!
    Send three today! Here are some suggestions:

    One for saying “Nancy Pelosi should be fired.”

    One for saying: “Obama is not a natural born citizen and therefore should not be our president. He should do the right thing and step down.”

    One for saying: “The ’stimulus bill’ as it is will bankrupt our country. Cut it in half, or better yet, even less than that – strictly tax cuts and real jobs, and not just for construction workers!”

  65. Here is the FAX number and suggestion of what to write – for the Kings Mill Resort & Spa where the Democrats are spending a few days using OUR tax money. Reportedly on FOX, the Republicans only used private funds for their retreat last week. The Dem Senators will be discussing the stimulus bill among other things.

    Please send a FAX today and the same one again tomorrow so if 1000 of us do this, they will get 2000 faxes in two days!

    Here is what I suggest you write:

    1. How much is this retreat costing?
    2. How much of that is private funding?
    3. How much of that is taxpayer money?
    EVERY PENNY of the taxpayer money needs to be refunded to taxpayers. We should deduct it from any taxes we pay or added to what our IRS refund is.

    See to it. Your votes for reelection are in jeopardy as we watch what you do with the Spending Bill now under consideration.

    Sincerely,
    A U.S. Citizen (natural born)

    You probably need to dial 1 first.
    Do it today & again tomorrow.
    Have fun! The Senators sure will.

    This is just one example of many to come, of the manner in which Obama will tie a noose around his own neck.

  67. Unfortunately, I think Blago is more interested in money then doing the right thing and becoming an informant. Somehow, Blago will be paid off or be provided a cushy job (if he doesn’t go to prison). Then the story about his “contacts/friends” will simply go away! It is only if he is not taken care of financially that he will “sing”. I, for one, pray he exposes all of them. If Blago doesn’t do it, then I hope Rezko does. Either way, Obama has to be sweating right now! Obama has abandoned both of them. Turn about is fair play!

  68. Does anyone have any research regarding the date of the legal name re instatement of Barrack Hussein Obama from Barry Soetoro. This would have had to occur at some point after his Occidental College,but before he entered Harvard. A NAME CHANGE PETITION is public record,and should not be too difficult to locate;that is if one exists. The reason why I am expending the effort to research this aspect of Obama’s adventures is that there is a real problem at the Whitehouse if he has not legally re-instated his birth name. It goes like this; The American Public voted for Barack Obama. Also he registered as a candidate using that name. If he never had his birthname legally reinstated then he is still Barry Soetoro. This name did not appear on his registration,nor did the voters vote for that name. If he is still Barry Sotoro then he is an illegal occupant of the White house. He needs to either show the public his legal name change petition,and the date that it was granted. If he cannot do that then he needs to be ejected from the Whitehouse. It is owned by the people of the United States and he is a tresspasser who has taken up residence there. Further If he has not re instated the Barack name legally we do not have a President having that name. If he has not reinstated his birth name legally then the name Barack Hussein Obama name is not being used at present. If that is all accurate then he was not legally elected either. This is because the American public was voting for a name only. A name cannot be the President of the US. In reality there presently is no legal president of the US if his birth name was never legally re-instated. Lets look for the legal reinstatement of his birthname. That along with his mothers POE papers will finish him.

  69. old salt–I distinctly recall reading that Obama stated he had his name changed in Hawaii using a lawyer–sorry, can’t help with the date or lawyer name–with Dumbo’s credibility factor being below most on death row, I’d not take much stock in anything he says.
    Good luck.

  70. Please take a moment to FAX the White House to say something like this:
    ———————————————————————————

    I resent the fact that President Obama refers to me and most other American citizens as “ordinary” people. I am not ordinary. Is that what he thinks of us? Are we “below” him? Does he feel superior? Does he consider us to be mere peons? It is a poor choice of wording.

    Please inform President Obama that American citizens should no longer be referred to as “ordinary”.

    Thank you.

    Be brief, but fax often!!!
    They won’t realize it’s the same person, they will just note the volume of faxed complaints. I am not “picking” on something small, by the way. It is an attack on his attitude. We need to not let anything slip by. FAX, FAX and FAX some more. One simple complaint per fax. Chip, chip, chip away and eventually, the tree may fall.
    He needs to realize there are millions of us who never drank the Kool-Aid and never will, that we are intelligent, free-thinking individuals and he will not get away with ANYTHING – not even looking down on us to refer to us as “ordinary”!

  71. NEWSBREAK-

    The President OBAMA just gave a speech at the Dept of Energy and said the nation has to create new forms of energy to run appliances, computers, and even” VIBRATORS”. I kid you not.

  72. ms. helga:

    The country needs a new form of energy to run our vibrators? He’s kidding, right? Isn’t that something you do, invest in something so massive as a “new form of energy”, when you have a lot of money??? Not when you are broke and in massive debt?

    Again: Here is the White House FAX number – please express yourselves and keep this number near your fax machine. You may be needing it daily at this rate!!!

    Still digesting this and waiting for dust to settle.

  75. I understand all your concerns and appreciate all your research into Obama’s past. But today is today and tomorrow will be horrible unless we act – no let me emphasize that word …….. ACT and ACT DAILY.

    Fortunately, many senators on TV have been saying that the thousands of emails, faxes, letters and calls they’ve been getting really DO have an effect on Dems and Repubs.

    And it only takes a moment each and every day.
    It doesn’t matter if you write the same thing and mail it, then fax it, then email it!!! They are only skimming these things and won’t realize the same person is doing it over and over because there are hundreds every day!

    So just keep it short and sweet, even just one or two sentences. The idea is VOLUME. And don’t sign it, no address or phone, etc. Just sign it U.S. Citizen, American Citizen, or similar.

    Google your senators for other contact info.
    Tell them to chop the “stimulus” plan in half and delete everything that is not absolutely necessary to stimulate the economy. Let your voices be heard (We love this blog but they don’t read it, you have to communicate directly with them).

  76. Obama to start a Faith Based Initiatives program at the White House…it is forewarned he will funnel money to radicalization after-school programs, his book and web site outline government bailout of the inner cities, including doling out faith-based grants “targeting ex-offenders”, midnight basketball programs, etc.

  77. twe –

    I saw it myself on MSNBC this morning. He gave a brief speech at the Dept of Energy. There was a small laugh by the audience when he said it. I am sure someone will report it later. Some where there must be a transcript.

  78. The vibrators thing sounds like another classic lipstick-on-a-pig distraction (from the 1.3trillion ripoff)…

  79. Jacqlyn Smith

    Are any of the rest of you tired of BO’s preaching and arrogant “I WON” attitude. As a USURPER he is getting rather BOLD!!! I heard him speak today and he really believes we can spend…spend…spend and not be worse off!!! He is a total idiot along with Pelosi and Reid. I can’t stomach any of them anymore!!! When can we take action to remove the USURPER??? He has already signed bill and made EO that are not legal!! WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!

  80. This
    1: The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, “chosen by the Legislature thereof,” for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.

    2. and if Vacancies happen by Resignation, “or otherwise,” during the Recess of the Legislature of any State, the Executive thereof may make temporary Appointments until the next Meeting of the Legislature, which shall then fill such Vacancies.4

    [Article XVII]

    1: The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, “elected by the people thereof,” for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures. affects 3

    2: “When vacancies happen in the representation of any State in the Senate,” the executive authority of such State shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies: Provided, That the legislature of any State may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legislature may direct.

    I cannot see why a Legislature of any State is not empowered by the 17th Amendment to “cause” a vacancy to “happen.” Vacancies can “happen” right now by executive action — for example, appointment to a Cabinet post. So it is clear to me that a vacancy can “happen” by legislative action — for example, unhappiness because the Senator is running for President — instead of staying in Washington and voting on legislation vital to the interest of a particular State, or any other reason. This would restore a portion of the control thate legislatures LOST when the 17th Amendment was adopted.

    I cannot see how this would require any amendment to the Constitution, because we have already seen “vacancies happen” with Obama’s appointments.

    This would only required State laws to be passed in each of the 50 states, and voila — we have a new balance of power in our Federal system.

  81. twe-

    I went to the White House site and found the speech sans “vibrator”.. Now I have to wait and see if any networks picked up on it.When you go to the speech go all the way down to”computers, appliances, even blackberries” This is where he stuck in “vibrators”

  82. Jacqlyn Smith

    twe—-What does this mean????

  83. Sent today a letter to BHO including the open letter from General Jones along with this text: “The United States Constitution Article II requires any President or Vice President be a natural born citizen of the United States. The founders meant a person born within the US and of two US Citizen parents, to avoid the peril of divided allegiance. No alternative definition has ever been asserted by amendment. No law has or can modify this fundamental requirement. It doesn’t matter what any of us think about its current merits or fairness; it is a founding principle of the United States. Deviations from it are treasonous to the Constitution.

    Because you have failed to demonstrate you are qualified under Article II, a constitutional crisis exists that you have caused. I ask you immediately release all original records regarding your birth location, hospital, doctor, date, time and witness names. If you do not qualify under Article II, you should immediately resign your office. Otherwise, We the People of the United States will continue to resist your leadership and seek reversal of each action you take and seek your removal from office with appropriate consequences. We the People will never rest in our effort to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God.”

    HA HA!

  85. It seems that there are a lot of people who no longer care to research Obama’s past. I can guarantee you that NOBODY has even scratched the surface where Obama is concerned. While much of his past is now under lock and key, there is still a great deal which with out a doubt has been forgotten,and/or overlooked. It is my intention to continue looking. I have 24-7 in which to pursue my research. I have a very comfortable wheelchair, and do not require a whole lot of sleep. I own a computer with some special software which to date has performed admirably. I fully expect to uncover quite a lot of hopefully useful information. It may seem a bit vain to re-research that which has already been researched,but I have learned through the years that it often pays big dividends to re investigate. Many criminals have been caught simply because sombody re-explored territory already covered and found something not noticed the first time over. You can be sure that if I uncover anything worthwhile I will post it for everyone to read. I still firmly believe that it won’t necessarily be faxes, or letters to your Senators,or representatives, or lots of research that will bring him down. It will be a combination of all of these things,in addition to a lot of luck. Everyday that passes the beast becomes stronger, and is more fortified. It is essential that somehow he is legally brought down. The key is information!

    Scroll for updates…Collins falls; Voino a no?

    Buzz on the Hill is that the Senate may vote today on the Generational Theft Act of 2009. Harry Reid and the Dems are desperate to end public debate.
    And then there’s this oh-so-important consideration (hat tip: Rob Neppell):
    “An analyst on Bloomberg just said the talk in Washington is that the Stimulus bill must pass today because many Senators are booked to a security “junket” to Munich tomorrow. Your govt. at work.”
    Crikey.
    The Senate GOP wobblers may be conspiring on a disastrous compromise as we speak. Who are they?

    Undoubtedly a PelosiLiar suggestion because she does not want them affected by the opinions of mere CITIZENS.

    So …….. try faxing.
    Just google Senator Spector who whomever you wish to fax and under contact you will find their fax numbers.

    It’s GOOD that we are getting busy signals – that means we are driving them crazy! Set your fax machine to keep trying until it goes through. That’s why I like faxing better than calling. Just set it and forget it. Ha ha.

  89. Expect a visit in a couple days CW. I am sick and tired of you censoring the truth but letting these outright lies be posted (The vibrator thing is the last one. I simply posted that you should go to msnbc to watch the video to see he said Blackberry)

    You are the filth of this earth and I plan on cleaning it up!

    Care to elaborate?

  91. Here is a suggestion for people to take some action from Dr. Orly’s web site Defend Our Freedoms.

    We need volunteers to coordinate and form citizen’s grand juries all over the country. Evidence of Barry Soetoro-Barack Obama’s ineligibility/illegitimacy for presidency will be presented to those Citizen’s Grand Juries for their decision on indictment or presentment. If you want to coordinate National or state or local effort in this matter, please e-mail me at dr_taitz@yahoo.com

  92. I heard him live…..and he did use the “V” word.

  93. Jaclyn Smith–

    There’s a lot of things someone can joke about. But, a president, who is professional and is concerned about his presidential image here and abroad, does not joke about such things that one would have to explain to a young grade school student. It’s smarmy and crass. If it were one of his political foes, be assured that the media would be all over this. That may fly in the locker room or in private; but, it’s not presidential. Maybe Jay Leno will speak of it tonight!

  94. Excerpts

    Daily Kos, Factcheck, and Snopes — or how to vet a presidential candidate By Michael Bresciani

    “I will not callously insult the fine internet sites that exist by lumping them all in the same category. What I must do is remind those seeking the truth that if it is the only medium you now have to get to the truth until someone in our legal system catches the drift, so keep holding the line and know that millions of us are counting on you.

    Then along comes Guantanamo judge Col. James L. Pohl who recently rejected the president’s request to halt the proceedings of the military tribunal being conducted to prosecute terrorism suspects. Kudos to the Colonel! Maybe he will embolden the squeamish Supremes and other judges to re-think their refusals to let the matter be answered once and for all.

    Until Obama offers more than an internet vetting of his documents those who are now forced to air their grievances and questions only on the web should not be the least bit dismayed. They are doing no better or worse than Barack Obama even without the msm and an entourage of entranced worshippers.”

  95. Jacqlyn Smith

    twe—I talking about the General Grade Officer carrying weight. What does this mean?? Is it good for us?? Can he demand Soetoro to show his credentials???

  96. Old Salt 76—You are SO right about continuing
    to dig for information, including info. already
    researched. The more we continue to search and post here and get the word out the closer
    we get to getting the usurper out.

  97. Jacqlyn Smith–Oh, OK! My mistake!

    OK, let me see if I can convey the essence of it. I hope this is not too redundant for you, or too long. Maybe you already know this. This is based on the Army model. The Marine Corps and Air Force have the same rank structure for officers (enlisted ranks differ).

    First you have the company grade officers–Second Lieutenant, First Lieutenant, Captain [which is different from a Captain in the Navy. A Captain in the Navy is equivalent to a Colonel in the Army and Air Force. A Lieutenant in the Navy is equivalent to a Captain in the Army]–and mind you, this is not to take anything away from the fine Non-commissioned officers–the company grade officers are junior officers (warrant officers are a different kettle of fish). Company grade officers are learning the ropes. Depending on the situation, some can command, or run, company level units. They have authority to promote and demote certain junior enlisted ranks.

    The next bracket up are the field grade officers. These are Majors, Lieutenant Colonels and Colonels. If you achieve field grade rank, you are generally set–unless you mess up somehow–to make twenty years in the Army and collect retirement (although there are now some partial type retirements for less time in). Lieutenant Colonels generally command Battalions, or the equivalent. Colonels generally command Brigades, or the equivalent. There is some flexibility during war time. They have more responsibility and authority than the junior grades. In peacetime, one could expect to make LTC at 20 years, COL after that at maybe 25-30 years, unless one is a fast-tracked officer moving up the ranks at record speed because of great performance reviews, responsibilities, and politics, in other words–a sterling profile. Most due course officers, that is–the officers that make their promotions on schedule neither ahead of nor behind the crowd–retire at 20 years at the rank of LTC.

    Next comes the General Officer rank (these are the Flag Officer ranks in the Navy). There are four of them, identified by how many stars they carry: Brigadier General (the most junior, a one star), Major General (two stars–often command an Army division–again some flexibility with wartime), Lieutenant General (three stars) and General (the highest, four stars)…and only one General of the Army (in wartime, five stars, there have been very few of these; Eisenhower was one) (there is also a General of the Armies–This is still five stars and only happens when the General commands more than one Army, which happens when the general is the Commander of multiple armies made up of multiple nations, etc. General Pershing was the only one). Congress votes on who becomes a General Officer (other military officers make rank by virtue of a Department of the Army selection board). By virtue of rank, experience, longevity and the selection process, a General Officer has lots of pull, lots of influence. Of course, the higher one goes, the greater the pull. Obviously, not everyone makes it this far. Generals often serve more than 30 years. In the Pentagon, where there are many Generals, a Brigadier General doesn’t mean much; but, in general (excuse the pun), a general officer is a big deal. It takes a lot to reach that rank. And, they do command a lot of respect. They are listened to more than your average service member, officer or enlisted.

    Hope that helps…and wasn’t too tedious for those who know this stuff by heart.

  98. Jacqlyn Smith

    More,
    Is it good for us?? Can he demand Soetoro to show his credentials???

    Yes, it is good for us. People will listen to what he says because he is a high ranking officer…and it may also get other General Officers to pay attention and join in…because one of their own had the guts to do so.

    Sorry, but he alone, by himself, cannot demand Soetoro credentials. But, it’s a huge step forward. If all you have are privates and sergeants and lieutenants demanding his credentials, then they might be dismissed as just disgruntled service members. But, when a General Officer speaks, this will get more people to take the issue seriously. It’s huge.

  99. Twe—–Thank you for the explanation!! I hope it works. All of this is making me ill!
