John Harris agrees to testify, Blagojevich trial, Obama ties, Tony Rezko, Emil Jones, Valerie Jarrett

Things are moving real slow in preparation for the Rod Blagojevich trial but yesterday, July 9, 2009, the Chicago Tribune reported that Blagojevich chief of staff, John Harris, has agreed to testify against him. What do the names, Rod Blagojevich, John Harris, Tony Rezko, Emil Jones, and Valerie Jarrett all have in common?

Hmmm……Let’s see…….

Barack Obama

Here are some exerpts from the Chicago tribune areticle:

“A chief of staff to former Gov. Rod Blagojevich became the first insider to formally agree to testify for the government, pleading guilty Wednesday in the sweeping federal corruption case against his ex-boss.

John Harris, who was arrested with the former governor in December, is expected to detail for prosecutors perhaps the most stunning charge in the case: how Blagojevich allegedly used his power to appoint a successor to President Barack Obama in the U.S. Senate to barter to enrich himself.

In exchange for Harris’ testimony, prosecutors agreed to recommend he serve less than 3 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to a single count of wire fraud and is expected to be one of a series of former aides and confidants — fellow chiefs of staff Alonzo “Lon” Monk and John Wyma as well as fundraiser Antoin “Tony” Rezko among them — to testify against Blagojevich.

The plea agreement alleges that the former governor viewed the Senate appointment as a unique opportunity to try to bargain with the new Obama administration, perhaps leading to a Cabinet or ambassador’s post.”

“Among them was the allegation that Blagojevich sent Harris to Springfield to see if one Senate candidate would be willing to exchange all the money in his campaign fund for the seat, a message that Harris says he did not explicitly deliver.

Sources identified that candidate as former state Senate Majority Leader Emil Jones (D-Chicago), who denied such a discussion took place.”

“The plea agreement alleged that Blagojevich discussed an option with an official from the Service Employees International Union — an individual he understood to be an emissary working on behalf of Obama. Blagojevich was hopeful that by naming an individual identified only as “Senate Candidate B” — previously disclosed to be Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett — he could secure an appointment to become secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the agreement said.”

  1. Odd…I’m getting an error on almost every link in this story.

    “Easy, tiger. This is a 404 page.
    You are totally in the wrong place. Do not pass GO; do not collect $200.”

    Just me, or more scrubadubdub?

  3. citizenwells

    Katie.
    Which link?

  4. It looks as though at least one of “BLABBO”S” buddies is going to fink on him,for a reduced sentence. I can’t understand why Rezko was never even sentenced for his crap. He is tied to the Iraqi billionaire Nadmi Auchi who is thought to be the financier of the Obama campaign. Isn’t that called illegal election financing? All of this was pretty much proven,and was forwarded to our trusty Federal Election Commission who promptly done nothing to even investigate the allegations. The people in that entity should themselves ALL be investigated, as they were PART AND PARCEL to FEDERAL ELECTION FRAUD.

    Blago, Obama, Senate, Jones, and Jarrett links show the error message.

    Those links are embedded in the tribune article.
    Sometimes they change them.

  9. BO stinks!

  10. I sure hope we get a Soetoro indictment before he gets impeached. The world needs to know the level of criminal activities going on in both Illinois and the White House.

    We were talking about internet pages getting scrubbed in another thread, but I discovered another one a few days ago. The Obama File just reminded me:

    A good example is Kristof’s famous New York Times article, in which Kristof quotes Obama saying that the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth” and in which Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer, the Adhan, “with a first-class [Arabic] accent” — that’s gone — from The New York Times — but it’s here though.

    This is off the topic but…..did you all know that the FRAUD took his entire family overseas again….we are all paying for this folks…..I saw them all get off the plane in Africa today!!! What a joke….everyone is fawning over these IMPOSTERS…what is even more sickening is that a friend of mine in Kansas thinks I’m nuts because if the FRAUD wasn’t legal he would not have gotten this far….she says we are trying to tear down a wonderful man and his beautiful family….I told her she was brainwashed and needed to research and review the evidence…..by the way…she doesn’t believe Larry Sinclair either…..I am so sick and tried of telling these kool-aid drinkers to learn the facts and show me the proof. I don’t know if I will call her again….this really upset me as we used to be very good friends.

  17. Looks like a new case has been filed by Major Cook !!!!!!!!

    Cook v Good et al
    July 10th, 2009

    I will post the pleadings, but the case filed on behalf of Major Cook, states that he is being deployed to Afghanistan and he is seeking a TRO (it is like a stay) of his deployment until Obama’s legitimacy (eligibility ) for presidency is ascertained. The judge is Federal District Judge for the middle district of GA -Clay D. Land.

    If you want to write to the judge it is as follows:

    Federal District Judge Clay D. Land

    Middle District of Georgia

    Columbus Division

    PO Box 124

    Columbus GA 31902

    Defendants in this case are the supervising officers Col Wanda Good (hence the name of the case Cook v Good), Col Macdonald, in their capacity as commanding officers, Dr. Gates in his capacity of the Secretary of Defence and Barack Hussein Obama-de facto president of the United states.

    Officer Cook is not only a highly decorated officer, being on staff of the Southern Command, he is also a family man, a father of a 16 y.o. and a highly educated professonal with the degrees in Economics, Business and Management.

    His grave concern is about soldiers under his command, all US officers and enlisted and about our children- what future will they have, when the person sitting in the White House as the commander in chief, is consealing all his vital records, spends over a million dollars to seal an otiginal birth certificate, that costs $12 to produce, who has multiple social security numbers in National databases and statements of experts, showing multiple signs of forgery in his Certification of live birth and selective service sertificate.

  19. Finally, someone with “Standing” !

    Any of the Lawyers here want to chime in? Just curious; Do you think this case will have any teeth?

  20. Obama has forbade return of hostile fire by Marines in Afghanistan! They are SITTING DUCKS.
    I wouldn’t go under those conditions either!

    Swine flu shots at school: Bracing for fall return

    By LAURAN NEERGAARD – 1 day ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. swine flu vaccinations could begin in October with children among the first in line — at their local schools — the Obama administration said Thursday as the president and his Cabinet urged states to figure out now how they’ll tackle the virus’ all-but-certain resurgence.

    The rest is here:

    Obama’s Rules Of Engagement

    Don’t shoot back!

    Don’t pick the poppies!

    And don’t bother the women and men in burqas!

    These are the new rules of engagement for leathernecks in Afghanistan.

    Sound incredible? They’re true.

    Welcome to the modern Marine Corps under Barack Hussein Obama.

    On July 1, the U.S. military initiated Operation Khanjar or “Strike of the Sword,” an invasion of the Helmand Province by 4,000 Marines and 650 Afghan soldiers.

    “Strike of the Sword” represents the first military operation to be ordered by Obama. The purpose of the campaign is to flush out Taliban operatives from southern Afghanistan in order to safeguard the re-election of Afghan President Hamid Karzai on August 20. The military initiative is being conducted by the insistence of Kharzai, who fears that a strong Taliban presence will produce unfavorable results for him on election-day.

    To accomplish this objective, Obama remains determined to deploy 68,000 additional U.S. troops to southern Afghanistan within the next six weeks.

    But the Marines, thanks to Obama, are conducting this mission with their hands tied.

    The first order from America’s new faux-commander is that the Marines must not return enemy fire for fear of killing an Afghan non-combatant.

    ABC Correspondent Mike Boettcher, who is embedded with Golf Company, reports that the young Marines, when ambushed by Taliban forces with automatic weapons, were ordered to shoulder their rifles. Their command, Boettcher writes, warned them that “one civilian casualty could negate the No. 1 objective of this operation — winning the trust and respect of the farmers of the Helmand River Valley.”

  23. Thank you Patriot Dreamer for answering my question on another thread about Blago. It was if I had a premonition this morning when I wrote that statement because in less than two hours Citizenwells posted a new article from the Chicago Tribune. The witches pot may be brewing and –wouldn’t it be wonderful–if Fitzgerald will truly become our champion of justice and include Obama in the middle of all bubbling, boiling, muggling pot!

    There are many facts that give us many reasons to strongly suspect Obama and his dragon lady are in the middle of this up to the top of their heads. What a pity for the many great black men and women that the so called first black president of the United States is also the first great imposter and a criminal of the most heinous kind.

  24. Fernley Girl // July 10, 2009 at 6:52 pm

    Hi Fernley Girl,

    I’ve heard this, too. Let’s see what they do regarding making these shots ‘mandatory.’ I don’t believe they can at this point, but we’ll have to see what happens when the vaccine is ready to be marketed. As soon as it’s out, I’ll have a lot more info to share.

    **********************************************
    bho boo // July 10, 2009 at 6:52 pm

    Hi bho boo,

    This article is shocking! So what happens if the Marines DO return fire? Court Martial? As The South just said, the military has STANDING! I hope that the Marines (and other branches of our wonderful military) do what they’ve been trained to do and file some sort of class-action suit against the Usurper. Not sure how it’d work, but to lay down arms in a combat situation and wait to be killed/injured MUST be actionable somehow!

    I’ve always thought that the military might just be the ones to crack him-let’s hope.

    ***********************************************

    Hi usapatriots-shout,

    Agree 100% . Let’s hope that Fitzy goes all the way with this and doesn’t wimp out. It’s awful not to be able to trust anymore.

    As one of my coworkers said today: ‘This guy has set race relations back 100 years.’ What a shame…

  25. The South, I will comment on Orly’s latest suit when she posts the pleadings; I cannot find these anywhere.

  26. jbjd,

    Thanks 🙂

  27. jbjd,

    Just found this! I think it’s the pleadings for Cook.

  29. BO doesn’t know what he is doing. He is the worst bogus CinC ever. He must go. He is destroying our military.

  30. The South, thank you so very much for the link.

    I have read Orly’s latest case and, I am too angry to rationally analyze this in print. In short, Plaintiff is asking the court to stay his military orders to deploy in 10 (ten) days because he is a conscientious objector. (He argues that he does not want to fight because he doubts BO is the lawful CIC.)

    I cannot say more now; when I calm down, I will read this again and provide a more detailed response.

  32. jbjd,

    It doesn’t sound like you’re too overly convinced this case will go anywhere lol !

    Well, lets hope it possibly leads to something! You’ve got to give these people credit for putting their careers on the line. They know he’s not eligible, and are fighting the fight the best way they personally know how.

    For this i give them credit. Eventually, someday, somewhere, someone (with a lot of BRASS on thier chest) is going to file a suit that will bring this jackass down.

    The topic is just too hot, and will not go away.

  33. bho hoo

    What I would like to know is Does Obama give a rats tail if any of our troops get wounded or killed while they are led to their slaughter like cattle.

    When is the military going to stop following Obama suicide orders and demand he show proof he is their legal CIC.

  34. In the Atlas Shrugs’ video (10 mins. long), interesting comment at the end about Valerie Jarrett!

  35. Wow, World Net Daily is doing some incredible work reporting on the unraveling of the birth cover story of hospitals in Hawaii. They have caught at least one hospital in a flat out lie and now they’re furiously scrambling around trying to cover their ass, but leaving footprints every step of the way as documented by WND. This is delicious indeed.

    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=103633

  36. Gianni,

    I was just over at WND … very interesting ! A lot is starting to fall apart. WND had an article about A journalist with MSNBC and said a shop owner made comment to journalist that they all know BO was born there. WND has what I believe is supposed to be a video of that interview, but I can’t seem to open it. Can anyone go over there and see if they can get the viedo, not the transcript, and bring it over here?

    Very, very intersting indeed. And these new articles were just posted right before and right after midnight July 11

    Thank you!

  37. Here it is, I hope, and about half way on the article you see “click here for video” and when I click it justy takes to the MSNBC site, and i can’t find the video …help!!

    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=103638

  38. Here’s the link for the interview with lady saying obami is kenyan!!

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032619#31856235

  39. Rocknee, the U.S. reporter says to the Ghanaian vendor, ‘You are so excited about BO but he’s from another country, he’s from Kenya.’ I could not believe it! I wonder whether LH (the anchor) ever corrected her account.

  40. Civis naturaliter natus

    USApatriots shout,

    You are absolutely right: a fraud like Zero in the whitehouse is the biggest crime against Afriacan-Americans in this century.

    It will damage the reputation of their race to seek that office for years. They should sue him for damages…(humor)…

  41. Civis naturaliter natus

    Jbjd,

    A word of advice for anger management issues:

    It is never good for a lawyer to get addicted to his own prudence.

  42. daroWalk2009

    Jbjd,

    You sound an Obot Lawers since I started to read your comments a couple of months ago!

    Why are you so agry for those who are trying to fight for a good cause to save America, Mr Jbjd?

  43. Give JBJD a break. He is angry because Orly may be putting these servicemen in harm’s way regarding their careers, and an attorney is supposed to be careful not to do this. It is a controversial move on the part of Orly, no matter how much in spirit you support the effort. The pramatics are that most lawyers are keen to this kind of bad outcome for a client, that is, loss of employment and possibly being thrown in the slammer. We’ll see what happens.

  44. Civis naturaliter natus

    Gianni,

    Right now in American the problem is that too many care only for themselves and to few for the country. If Major Cook has made his own decision, we should respect that, and not fault Orly, who herself is taking a risky stand, since lawyers can be sued for malpractice.

    Therefore I think it is entirely unwarrented to criticize either, and that the anger of Jbjd is uncalled for. As adults we ought to be able to disagree about prudent courses of action which do not involve us or our firends and family, without getting emotionally involved.

  45. Article…..fourth paragraph down:

    African the continent of his birth.

  46. zachjonesishome

    Good Morning. I am very interested in following the Cook action. I am certain that Major Cook is fully aware of the consequences to his military career, etc. One does not achieve the rank of Major without being aware of the politics of advancement.

    I admire his courage and willingness to stand up for his convictions. I wish him success.

    Have a good weekend. Zach

  48. MORE SCRUBBING GOING ON

    Please note now that representative Neil Abercrombie has completely removed the image of the alleged letter he received from the White House on Jan. 24 where Obama states he was born in Kapiolani hospital in Hawaii. They had proudly displayed this letter for months until WND discovered it was not a letter at all but written in HTML on the web. Please compare in the link below how the representative’s web page looks now compared to how it looked just yesterday from the screen shots provided by WND.

    http://www.house.gov/list/speech/hi01_abercrombie/nb09kapiolani_hospital_message.shtml

    I tell you what, here is the next course of business. Abercrombie should be bombarded with requests to produce the alleged letter from the White House. I mean, really pursue this thing. I hope WND or someone else is working this angle right now. Sometimes such seemingly innocent slip ups turn out to be major breaking points in a cover up. This could be the start of something big.

  49. Civis naturaliter natus

    Stll quotes the “offending” phrase:

    Neil’s Notebook
    Delivering President Obama’s message

    January 24, 2009

    Neil read, what is believed to be, one of the first official messages of congratulations from President Barack Obama, in which he acknowledged the 100th anniversary for pediatric care at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children.

    The President’s message recognizes the center’s service to generations with distinction: 62,000 kids per year, including the President himself. Settling the question once and for all, he states that Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children “is the place of my birth. Hawaii has always been home to me.” More than 700 community leaders and supporters gathered at the Hawaii Convention Center Saturday (1/24/09) to celebrate the anniversary.

  50. Civis naturaliter natus

    I think O’s lawyers are behind this: they don’t want anything that appears to be his signature on a letter claiming something that is contrary to what the documents will show, if and when revealed.

  51. citizenwells

    BO’s signature is on the AZ eligibility doc prior to the elections.

  52. citizenwells

    Zach.
    I agree.

  54. Just finished Larry’s Book !!! YAY!!!

    This may very well be the smoking gun!

    Everyone please buy this book. There is a ton of information / names in it that I don’t see how they can deny! Buy this book. Help get it to the top of this best sellers and then what will they say? The bigger this book gets … the harder it will be for the BO camp to deny it. Larry didn’t hold back. Lots of information there for a good journalist to grab and run with!

    GOOD LUCK LARRY! GREAT JOB!

    I sure hope we get a Soetoro indictment before he gets impeached. The world needs to know the level of criminal activities going on in both Illinois and the White House.

    Jeff, since Nov. 4th, any entity, either mineral, human, or vegetable is dead or in a coma if unaware of this debauchery exposed daily by the internet, not OMSM.

  56. cw, that AZ document is the oath to the S of S to get onto AZ’s primary ballot, in December 2007, in which BO explicitly swore he is a NBC.
    BO TO AZ SOS: I SWEAR I AM A NBC

  57. Give JBJD a break. He is angry because Orly may be putting these servicemen in harm’s way regarding their careers, and an attorney is supposed to be careful not to do this.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    And justification for the actions of a CIC fraud to also do this??

  58. citizenwells

    Correct jbjd

  59. Civis naturaliter natus

    Jbjd,

    Thanks for the link. I was actually unware that he claimed that, since he apparently denied the same in his debate with Alan Keyes for the Illinois Senate back in the fall of 2004.

  60. cnn: since you mentioned Alan Keyes…and maybe (like I expect jbjd might insist)…it’s moot; but just what is his status relative to “standing”?…the term getting tossed around here.

  61. can you ‘splain that in short simple terms for us non-legal types?
