  1. CW, thank you for consolidating these links about Chicago corruption. I doubt these will lead me to sites that contain any information with which I was previously unfamiliar, having spent countless hours researching BO’s background early on in the primary season. But, gauging the recent responses of readers of this and other blogs to facts about the man that have been out there for several months, it would appear that, even relatively well-informed citizens still have a lot to learn about the corruption that is all things BO. (I suspect most of these ‘surprised’ readers are Republicans and did not follow the machinations of the Democratic primary. Those of us who did know, for example, HRC actually won the D primary – that is, she won the popular vote and amassed more pledged delegates from votes cast than BO – will never forgive BO from stealing the nomination. It only adds insult to injury that he is not a NBC.)

    Big Brother at work:
    This morning I saw at Yahoo an article that MO has acted against the protocol and touched the queen.
    This is a no no. Don’t ever touch the queen.

    No surprise, since official protocol is not one of their strenghts.
    It’s more the Chicago Style.

    Anyway, this afternoon on Yahoo:
    Mo and queen share bonding moment.
    “Michelle Obama charms queen away from protocol”

    Rewrite history.
    The queen of England has met people all her life that have more charm and importance than this gal from Chicago.
    noblesse oblige –
    Elisabeth did not correct her in public, but there will be no other chance for MO to treat the queen like an old aunt.

    Thanks.
    It is important that the public get the rest of the story and not the
    well crafted spin from the MSM.

    I haven’t posted in a while but I feel this is the time to go on the offense. This is what I have been waiting for. I knew as well that the ties to corruption are the only way justice can be done! I almost posted that the FBI is gone as well. This still gives me some pause and see where its going. The media says fitzy is a brick by brick guy and that takes time, like watching paint dry. There must be more roaches in the corners that will come out once these defendants see jail for a long time and do and say anything to avoid the fed pen. The ties must be real deep. THE HALLS OF JUSTICE ARE A SLOW GRIND BUT WHEN JUSTICE COMES IT COMES SWIFTLY!

    This Usurper trip to London has been a fiasco, and the meat of the meeting hasn’t even started yet! From touching the Queen, to giving her an Ipod, to bowing before the Saudi king, to such a drain on our beloved troops sent there to protect the Usurper, leaving Afghanistan vulnerable! We need troops in Afgahnistan to ensure the safety of our soldiers, not the Usurper visiting the Queen!!!

    Meanwhile……

    Can anyone provide updates on Larry Sinclair? I was hoping yesterday was the big day, but not the release is delayed AGAIN to 4/15???

    I have always wanted to give Larry Sinclair a chance, and I am inclined to believe him, and I know he is fighting against numerous odds and forces and I consider him a patriot, but these delays don’t help his cause. I was supposed to be relased in Jan before the Inaug, and kept getting pushed on. That book needs to be out!!!

    thank you.

  7. To decentAmerican: Try going to Larry’s web site for an update. Here it is:

    http://larrysinclair-0926.blogspot.com/

  8. We hope that the trial will go fairly and squarely.. We would not want to convict an innocent or release a corrupt official.. We just hope for the truth since we are not familiar with what really happened although there may be evidence..

  9. Hopefully, the can of worms will be open soon and justice will be served with the whole lot.

  10. There is no way the Queen would be pleased
    with the hug around the waist by MO who
    obviously didn’t listen during her “protocol
    lessons.” The Queen would not make a public
    issue of the infraction, but you can bet it was
    noted and will be discussed in the privacy of
    Buckingham Palace later. I don’t believe the
    comments in the media about “breaking with
    protocol”—not for one minute is Her Majesty
    breaking with any rules of etiquette when it
    comes to the Monarchy. And, BO, grabbing
    the Queen’s hand between your TWO hands
    is a no no also. Two uncouth Obamas have
    tea with the Queen who would rather be
    rolling her eyes in astonishment at the
    mannerisms of the pair from the USA.

    Gee, it sure took MSM enough time for them catch on…… or get the guts to………..

  18. I was listening to local radio last night on the Blago indictment, only to hear a very odd comment — and it was this: “Prosecutors are doing everything to assure that the Blago investigation goes ‘out,’ and not ‘up.'”

    What the commentators were trying to say by this, is that prosecutors are NOT GOING TO ALLOW BLAGO TO ‘TALK!’ In other words, they are willing to cut his sentence to almost nothing (say 3 years instead of 15, for example), if he will plead quickly, and keep his MOUTH SHUT.

    Why?

  19. THE USURPER JUST SAID HIS FATHER IS FROM KENYA. HE SAID THIS IN CITY HALL MEETING IN STRAUSBURG,FRANCE. I AM SURE WE WELL HEAR ABOUT THIS FROM MSM NOT.

  20. all this is proof! Fitzy (IMO) is sending Usurper a warning shot! *don’t you dare think about firing me*! This entire cabal is intertwined. Obama is being blackmailed by Fitzy! Fitzgerald is a joke! go back to *Plame Gate* Fitzy is an unscrupulous government weasel! He will not expose Obama.

    Kathy

  21. I can’t understand why they still insist on protecting the usurper when he is just as much of a criminal as Blago and Rezko, his buddies. It’s not right that they won’t allow Blago to tell the truth about zero’s involvement.

  22. It is becoming increasingly clear that WE have a government that it is FULL REBELLION against US, the SOVEREIGN PEOPLE.

    Evidence — they RESIST our INPUT!

    They ignore correspondence, they hang up on phone calls, they publish idiotic replies, and they make judicial decisions based on twitter and snopes.com!

    The people told them NOT to bail out anyone at a rate of 99 to 1! And, what do we have as a result? If Drudge is to be believed, then more than $12.8 trillion additional debt has been laid upon our children and our grandchildren.

    Now in Chicago, it appears that we now have a Federal prosecutor who has played footsie and b-ball with Obama doing everything he in his power to buy a rogue politician’s silence!

    Let’s just hope that Blago’s overwhelming NARCISSISM compels him to TALK, TALK, TALK! Give him the LIMELIGHT, and just maybe we will get to the bottom of all this!

  23. The MSM will not report this. There are 2 reasons why. (1) They know the definition of Obama’s bowing to the Saudi MUZZY! and realize they are NOT immuned to the impending threat! (2) The MSM is part of the real picture. Either way, please think independently.

    Kathy

  24. This is never reported. you can watch the FIASCO about the Blago indictment,but also pay attention to other factual things.

  25. one more suggestion before I go to work. The N Korea missile test. Think about that. Is this display of agression by N Korea a happenstance? NO! This is a well crafted event,organized by the ursurper administration. Remember Joe The Biden saying Obama’s metal will be tested? Here it is. All this chest thumping by N Korea is staged to appear Usurper is tough. I say BS! This an episode out of *24* and Usurper is Jack Bauer. Don’t fall for this. Look how the MSM has crafted this as a *must see ongoing drama* Don’t fall for this. IMO

    Thanks,
    Kathy

  26. According to the 75 page lawsuit, Rahm Emmauel is a VICTIM of Blago. They tried to extort money from him. Jonathan Turley said this indictment clears Obama and Emmanuel from any /all wrongdoing. Not gonna get him that way. PS like him or not, He did great overseas! His approval ratings there are as high as Princess Dianas were!!

    This is Yellow press, sweety.

    What are political newspapers saying? What was that again, that he accomplished in London?

    And what about the miserable weeks he had here, AIG, GM and so forth.

    Dave.
    I wonder what prompted the reporters to think something was unusual?
    This appears normal for BO.

  34. CW, hit the nail on the head. As it turns out, other than FOX News, not one other news source felt it unusual enough to report.

  35. Need translation help…does anyone here speak Spanish? I’m doing a depo and need a translation of this phrase into Spanish.

    Phrase is: don’t hit me

    is it “no me pego” or something like that?

    I got this translated on-line, but the guy sounds like he has an “s” on the end of that last word, so don’t know.

    thanks

  36. British Protocol for meeting the Queen:
    The website for the British queen advises men who are from the United Kingdom to provide a neck bow (from the head only) “whilst women do a small curtsy. Other people prefer simply to shake hands in the usual way.”

    This was on World Net Daily, and I found it
    interesting that Mr. Obama followed the
    protocol on the “neck bow” as is required
    of those FROM the UK (is this just a
    coincidence–Kenyan born, British Protectorate
    at the time…??? or did BHO do it as
    “required” according to his UK origin?????)

  37. Angela Merkel of Germany doesn’t like Obama and is not easily swayed by him. As a woman, she has a highly developed BS meter, and it goes off wildly whenever she sees Obama. Just like mine.

    Why?
    ++++++++++
    out and up — means to me that Blago needs
    to get out of the public eye (jail him fast) and
    up –get rid of him before Blago yaps and
    goes “up the ladder” to Obama and incriminates
    him.
    Hope that Blago gets to say ALL and tell
    his side of the story.

  40. Too F.. Funny… Does Fitz actually expect us to believe Soetoro is innocent of criminal behavior? Have him check into the pay to play with the job at the hospital his Wife recieved after getting government tax money for said hospital. How is the investigation of the murder of Donald Young coming??? Illegal campaign funds ect….

  41. BREAKING NEWS

    The New World Currency

    This is another in a series of “I told you so” stories that will not be covered, or at least not covered adequately, by the MSM. Only a president and an administration that is committed to unbridled globalization and a New World Order would have allowed this to happen.

    Events and agreements at the just-concluded G20 meetings have severely weakened the US as a world power and further makes a major erosion in our national sovereignty.

    From a speech by Gordon Brown, PM of UK:

    The summit ended with smiles, a lengthy communiqué and grandiose pronouncements … Gordon Brown, host of the G20 summit in London, claimed that the deal marked the emergence of a “new world order” as he announced a range of moves, including a pledge … boost to the International Monetary Fund.

    Notice carefully that he claimed the “emergence”, not the “evolution” or “strengthening”. Clearly, in their own words, they believe they have made a monumental change to the world economic situation. The amount of change has yet to be totally comprehended – but you can be sure it is not good for the interests of the US. A “tip of the iceberg” synopsis follows:

    From the actual communiqué:

    “We have agreed to expand the Financial Stability Forum to include all G20 countries and to reestablish it with a stronger mandate as the Financial Stability Board. It will drive the development of common principles and standards of regulation, strengthen international co-operation between regulators and policymakers, and, together with the IMF, identify and report on the build up of macroeconomic and financial risks.”

    “We have agreed to work closely and systematically, in accordance with the FSF framework, to supervise cross-border institutions and to complete the establishment of colleges of supervisors for all significant cross-border financial firms.”

    “We have agreed to endorse the FSF’s common principles on pay and compensation in financial institutions.”

    “We have agreed that each of us commits to candid, even-handed, and independent IMF surveillance of our economies and financial sectors, of the impact of our policies on others, and of risks facing the global economy.”

    From an article in Apr 3, Bloomberg.com:

    “Global leaders took their biggest steps yet toward a new world order that’s less US-centric with a more heavily regulated financial industry and a greater role for international institutions and emerging markets.”

    “At the end of a summit in London, policy makers from the Group of 20 yesterday delivered a regulatory blueprint that turned the page on the Anglo-Saxon model of free markets by placing stricter limits on financiers. The leaders also pledged to triple the resources of the International Monetary Fund and to hand China and other developing economies a greater say in the management of the world economy.”

    ” ‘It’s the passing of an era,’ said Robert Hormats, vice chairman of Goldman Sachs International, who helped prepare summits for presidents Gerald R. Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. ‘The U.S. is becoming less dominant while other nations are gaining influence.’ ”

    From an article in the Apr 3, London Financial Times:

    “In a new development, the G20 agreed to let the IMF create $250bn of special drawing rights, its own currency, comprising dollars, euros, yen and sterling. This will boost the foreign exchange reserves of every country. Most of this cash will go to the big advanced economies, but poorer countries facing budgetary strains will gain new cash.”

    This last paragraph may just fly right past you – so let me explain.

    At a time when many of us are criticizing the US Federal Reserve (Fed) as being illegal, unconstitutional, and a key source of current problems – this G20 summit just created the mother of all “Feds” at the international level. The members of the IMF can deposit real national money (and gold and silver) with the IMF and the IMF will create a fiat currency based on those deposits – but expanded or inflated by, say, 100:1. This new currency is created largely out of thin air and will be managed by the IMF. They will set the price of this currency in regards all the other national currencies. All international obligations will be valued in relation to this currency. Or in the vernacular – all international bills must be paid in this currency.

    For whatever reason (the paranoid would say – to more easily “put one over” on us), they failed to actually name the new currency (e.g. “Planetos”, “Worldars”, or some such), but the facts of the situation remain. There’s a new world currency and it ain’t the US Dollar.

    This may be the most significant event to happen – ever – on the world stage – and we (US) just got screwed.

    is it “no me pego” or something like that?

    I got this translated on-line, but the guy sounds like he has an “s” on the end of that last word, so don’t know.
    ———————–
    don’t hit me: no me pege OR no me peges …either is correct depending on whether one is using it formally or familiarly (that is casually)…though, I can’t remember which is which. They are both correct.

    HOWEVER,
    no me pego, ON THE OTHER HAND, means he/she didn’t hit me

    Obviously, it’s really important to know exactly what was said because, as you can see, the meaning does change somewhat in these two instances.

    Would you be able to post more of the words, so the meaning could be determined from the content?

  43. Thanks. I went with no me pego, but I just wrote your “no me peges” down. I wrote the “o” with a little accent mark over it.

    Here’s what’s happening. It’s about someone getting beat up by a police officer. The witness, who saw the ordeal, said the guy was yelling, don’t hit me, don’t hit me….

    The attorney says, we he saying it in Spanish or English. The witness said both and confirmed that he can speak Spanish also. Then the attorney says, well, how did he say it in Spanish?

  44. correction: I meant to write, was he saying it in Spanish or English? sorry

  45. Carlyle,

    Horrible news. We’re heading for WAR for sure if these goons have their way with the dollar. Once people are forced to check in their currency, it’s going to get messy.

    Start collecting Gold and Silver people. As it stands right now that will be the currency of choice during the upcoming revolution.

    DON’T TREAD ON ME!!!

  46. Got it. Based on what you wrote, if I were doing an official translation, because you said it sounded like there was an “s” on the end of the word, I would have to go with:

    He said, “No me peges.”

    As an aside, you correctly put the tilde (accent mark) on the “o” for pego. But, DON’T use pego; because that would mean that the officer didn’t hit him. And, since you said he was getting beat up, it wouldn’t make sense for him to be yelling–he didn’t hit me, he didn’t hit me…which is what “no me pego” means. It’s key. It can
    change the case.

  47. Thanks, TWE. I sure do appreciate it. I did put the tilde above the word “pego” on the “o.” I tried to do it here and won’t work.

    I’m having a little bit of a difficult time understanding the witness at times. He kind of mumbles a lot. Sometimes it sounds like he’s got a mouth full of chewing tobacco.

    And I wrote a little blurb for the CR (Speaking Spanish) and also a note telling her where I got the translation.

  48. You’re welcome. God bless!

  49. TWE,

    I do appreciate your help a lot, and may Yahweh be with you! Have a good weekend…

  54. Can’t you just see the Queen after they left? “That black bitch actually touched me”. Who does she think she is–the Queen?” I would have loved to be a fly on the wall. Nobamas are both uncouth people who are not only destroying the country but also embarrassing Americans. If any of you get a chance, order the movie “Obama Deception”. It pretty much tells what is going to happen to us–not good. Also, does anyone have any information on a supposed concentration camp being set up in Beech Grove, Indiana? I have heard it is true, and I have heard it is a hoax. My mom is in the hospital, and I go by there every day. It is a sinister looking place where trains go to be repaired; however, today I noticed some new signs going up. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.bkw

  55. Brenda,
    I did notice the expression on Queen Elizabeth’s face…I do believe it was one of distaste (which in that startled moment, she artfully concealed).
    It is interesting how the msm spins a different story.
