Blagojevich trial, Obama and Rezko, Blagojevich defense subpoena

Here is a small but important exerpt from the Blagojevich defense motion to subpoena  Barack Obama for the Blagojevich trial, set to begin June 3, 2010.

“22. However, the defense has a good faith belief that Mr. Rezko, President Obama’s former friend, fund-raiser, and neighbor told the FBI and the United States Attorneys a different story about President Obama. In a recent in camera proceeding, the government tendered a three paragraph letter indicating that Rezko “has stated in interviews with the government that he engaged in election law violations by personally contributing a large sum of cash to the campaign of a public official who is not Rod Blagojevich. … Further, the public official denies being aware of cash contributions to his campaign by Rezko or others and denies having conversations with Rezko related to cash contributions. … Rezko has also stated in interviews with the government that he believed he transmitted a quid pro quo offer from a lobbyist to the public official, whereby the lobbyist would hold a fundraiser for the official in exchange for favorable official action, but that the public official rejected the offer. The public official denies any such conversation. In addition, Rezko has stated to the government that he and the public official had certain conversations about gaming legislation and administration, which the public official denies having had.”10

10 The defense has a good faith belief that this public official is Barack Obama. See, “Obama on Rezko deal: It was a mistake”, Dave McKinney, Chris Fusco, and Mark Brown, Chicago Sun Times, November 5, 2006. Senator Barack Obama was asked: “Did Rezko or his companies ever solicit your support on any matter involving state or federal government? Did Al Johnson, who was trying to get a casino license along with Tony Rezko, or Rezko himself ever discuss casino matters with you?” Senator Obama answered: “No, I have never been asked to do anything to advance his business interest. In 1999, when I was a State Senator, I opposed legislation to bring a casino to Rosemont and allow casino gambling at docked riverboats which news reports said Al Johnson and Tony
Rezko were interested in being part of. I never discussed a casino license with either of them. I was a vocal opponent of the legislation.” Obama’s involvement with Tony Rezko and this legislation coincides with the three paragraph summary the government has provided to the defense referenced above.”

The following is from a Chicago SunTimes article dated November 5, 2006. It contains the usual Obama lies and misrepresentations.

“Obama on Rezko deal: It was a mistake”

“U.S. Sen. Barack Obama expressed regret late Friday for his 2005 land purchase from now-indicted political fundraiser Antoin “Tony” Rezko in a deal that enlarged the senator’s yard.
“I consider this a mistake on my part and I regret it,” Obama told the Chicago Sun-Times in an exclusive and revealing question-and-answer exchange about the transaction.
In June 2005, Obama and Rezko purchased adjoining parcels in Kenwood. The state’s junior senator paid $1.65 million for a Georgian revival mansion, while Rezko paid $625,000 for the adjacent, undeveloped lot. Both closed on their properties on the same day.”

“The transaction occurred at a time when it was widely known Tony Rezko was under investigation by U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald and as other Illinois politicians befriended by Rezko distanced themselves from him.
In the Sun-Times interview, Obama acknowledged approaching Rezko about the two properties being up for sale and that Rezko developed an immediate interest. Obama did not explain why he reached out to Rezko given the developer’s growing problems.
Last month, Rezko was indicted for his role in an alleged pay-to-play scheme designed to fatten Gov. Blagojevich’s political fund. Rezko also was accused of bilking a creditor.”

“”It was simply not good enough that I paid above the appraised value for the strip of land that he sold me. It was a mistake to have been engaged with him at all in this or any other personal business dealing that would allow him, or anyone else, to believe that he had done me a favor,” the senator said.
The land deal came up in a court hearing Friday that delved into Rezko’s finances. Obama said he has not been approached by federal prosecutors about the transaction nor has plans to go to them about it.
Obama and Rezko have been friends since 1990, and Obama said the Wilmette businessman raised as much as $60,000 for him during his political career. After Rezko’s indictment, Obama donated $11,500 to charity–a total that represents what Rezko contributed to the senator’s federal campaign fund.
After the controversy surfaced on Wednesday, the Sun-Times presented Obama’s office with a lengthy set of questions about the land deal, Obama’s relationship with Rezko and the story’s impact on a potential 2008 bid for the White House.”

“Q: Senator, when did you first meet Tony Rezko? How did you become friends? How often would you meet with him, and when did you last speak with him?

A: I have probably had lunch with Rezko once or twice a year and our spouses may have gotten together on two to four occasions in the time that I have known him. I last spoke with Tony Rezko more than six months ago.”

“Q: Did you approach Rezko or his wife about the property, or did they approach you?
A: To the best of my recollection, I told him about the property, and he developed an interest, knowing both the location and, as I recall, the developer who had previously purchased it.”

“Q: How do you explain the fact your family purchased your home the same day as Rita Rezko bought the property adjacent to yours? Was this a coordinated purchase?

A: The sellers required the closing of both properties at the same time. As they were moving out of town, they wished to conclude the sale of both properties simultaneously. The lot was purchased first; with the purchase of the house on the adjacent lot, the closings could proceed and did, on the same day, pursuant to the condition set by the sellers.”

“Q: Why is it that you were able to buy your parcel for $300,000 less than the asking price, and Rita Rezko paid full price? Who negotiated this end of the deal? Did whoever negotiated it have any contact with Rita and Tony Rezko or their Realtor or lawyer?

A: Our agent negotiated only with the seller’s agent. As we understood it, the house had been listed for some time, for months, and our offer was one of two and, as we understood it, it was the best offer. The original listed price was too high for the market at the time, and we understood that the sellers, who were anxious to move, were prepared to sell the house for what they paid for it, which is what they did.
We were not involved in the Rezko negotiation of the price for the adjacent lot. It was our understanding that the owners had received, from another buyer, an offer for $625,000 and that therefore the Rezkos could not have offered or purchased that lot for less.”

“Q: Does it display a lack of judgment on your part to be engaging in real estate deals with Tony Rezko at a point his connections to state government had been reported to be under federal investigation?

A: I’ve always held myself to the highest ethical standards. During the ten years I have been in public office, I believe I have met those standards and I know that is what people expect of me. I have also understood the importance of appearances.
With respect to the purchase of my home, I am confident that everything was handled ethically and above board.
But I regret that while I tried to pay close attention to the specific requirements of ethical conduct, I misgauged the appearance presented by my purchase of the additional land from Mr. Rezko. It was simply not good enough that I paid above the appraised value for the strip of land that he sold me. It was a mistake to have been engaged with him at all in this or any other personal business dealing that would allow him, or anyone else, to believe that he had done me a favor. For that reason, I consider this a mistake on my part and I regret it.”

“Q: Why did you not publicly disclose the transaction after Rezko got indicted?

A: At the time, it didn’t strike me as relevant. I did however donate campaign contributions from Rezko to charity.”

“Q: Did Rezko or his companies ever solicit your support on any matter involving state or federal government? Did Al Johnson, who was trying to get a casino license along with Tony Rezko, or Rezko himself ever discuss casino matters with you?

A: No, I have never been asked to do anything to advance his business interests. In 1999, when I was a State Senator, I opposed legislation to bring a casino to Rosemont and allow casino gambling at docked riverboats which news reports said Al Johnson and Tony Rezko were interested in being part of. I never discussed a casino license with either of them. I was a vocal opponent of the legislation. (http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/votehistory/srollcalls91/pdf/910SB1017_05251999_001000C.PDF)”

“Q: Did Rezko ever discuss with you his dealings with Stuart Levine, Christopher Kelly or William Cellini or the role he was playing in shaping Gov. Blagojevich’s administration?

A: No.”

“Q: Did Rezko have an appraisal performed for the 10-foot strip?

A: I had an appraisal conducted by Howard B. Richter & Associates on November 21, 2005.”

“Q: Was there a negotiation? Did he have an asking price, or did he just say, whatever you think is fair?

A: I proposed to pay on the basis of proportionality. Since the strip composed one-sixth of the entire lot, I would pay one-sixth of the purchase price of the lot. I offered this to Mr. Rezko and he accepted it.”

“Q: How many fundraisers has Mr. Rezko hosted for you? Were these all in his home? How much would you estimate he has raised for your campaigns?

A: He hosted one event at his home in 2003 for my U.S. Senate campaign. He participated as a member of a host committee for several other events. My best estimate was that he raised somewhere between $50,000 and $60,000.”

Kenneth J Conner whistleblower lawsuit

Obama, Rezko real estate deal, rest of the story

Many have forgotten about the lawsuit initiated by Kenneth J Conner on October 16, 2008. I have not. Conner is the whistleblower who was fired from Mutual Bank for raising questions about the Rezko real estate transactions. His lawsuit is still alive. Mutual Bank has gone under but the FDIC is still listed as a defendant.

Kenneth J Conner worked for Mutual bank from August 3, 2000 until he was dismissed October 23, 2007. Conner is a graduate of Benedictine University with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Management degree with the honor of “Management Major of the Year” in May, 1999. Conner later earned a Master’s Degree in Finance from Benedictine University in May , 2005.

Here are some interesting exerpts.

“9.  In June, 2005, Mutual Bank President and CEO Amrish Mahajan and other Mutual Bank olfficers approved a loan to Rita Malki Rezko (Rita Rezko) which was guaranteed by Antonin Rezko so that Rita Rezko could purchase a 9,090 square foot vacant parcel of real estate at 5050 S. Greenwood Avenue, Chicago. As part of the Mutual Bank loan underwriting process, Mutual Bank obtained a real estate appraisal from Adams Valuation Corporation (Adams Appraisal) which purported to provide an opinion of value of the subject 5050 S. Greenwood real estate (the collateral for the Rezko loan) at $ 68.76 per square foot. A copy of the Adams Appraisal is attached as Exhibit C. In June, 2005, Rita Rezko closed on the purchase of the 5050 S. Greenwood property at a purchase price of $ 625,000.00 along with the loan from Mutual Bank in the amount of $ 500,000.00 with Mutual bank obtaining a first mortgage lien position on the Greenwood vacant parcel.”

“10.  On or about January 4, 2006, Rita Rezko entered into an agreement with Senator Barack and Michelle Obama (Obamas) to sell a ten-foot strip of the 5050 S. Greenwood property to the Obamas. A copy of the Obama/Rita Rezko contract is attached as Exhibit D. As a result of that transaction, the Rezkos requested that Mutual Bank release it’s first collateral position to the ten-foot strip parcel transferred to the Obamas. In that same general time frame, Richard Barth, Mutual Bank Senior VP of construction lending and James Murphy, Mutual Bank Senior VP Internal Auditor/Risk Manager, requested that Conner perform an appraisal review of the Adams Appraisal attached hereto as Exhibit C.”

“11.  In late 2005 or early 2006, Conner performed an appraisal review of the Adams Appraisal (Exhibit C) per the directive of Richard Barth and James Murphy. Conner prepared a written Appraisal Review report (ARR) opining that the Adams Appraisal overvalued the Greenwood lot by a minimum of $ 125,000.00 and that a reasonable and fair valuation for Mutual Banks’s underwriting purposes should be no greater than $ 500,000.00 for the entire 5050 S. Greenwood parcel as originally purchased by Rita Rezko. In that same general time frame an appraisal was performed for the 5050 S. Greenwood property by Howard B. Richter, MAI which valued the 5050 S. Greenwood property at $ 54.00 per square foot but then discounted the ten-foot strip being transferred by Rita Rezko to the Obamas by fifty percent, as the ten-foot strip was unbuildable standing alone…The valuation by the Richter Appraisal for the 5050 S. Greenwood lot was substantially to Conner’s ARR valuation.”

“12.  Conner notified Richard Barth and James Murphy orally of his ARR findings and Conner’s ARR was filed in the “Rezko 5050 Greenwood” loan file at Mutual Bank.”

“13.  In addition to Conner’s ARR stating that the Adams Appraisal overvalued the 5050 S. Greenwood property, Conner had reported on other occasions that Adams Valuation Corporation had overvalued real estate subject to Mutual Bank loan underwriting valuation.”

“14.  On or about October 19, 2006, Mutual Bank received a Grand Jury Subpoena (GJS) requiring Mutual Bank to produce the Rezko 5050 Greenwood loan file, as well as a Rita Rezko Riverside District Development LLC checking account and loan file. Electronic mail (email) communications about the subpoena were circulated to Mutual Bank officers and attorneys, including Amrish Mahajan, James Murphy and Conner. A copy of an October 19, 2006 email string pertaining to the Rezko GJS is attached as Exhibit F. On information and belief, Conner’s ARR was removed from the Rezko 5050 Greenwood loan file prior to the submission of that file pursuant to the GJS, and in it’s place Mutual bank submitted an appraisal checklist which was purportedly dated “06/15/05″ from Senior VP James P. Murphy (Murphy Checklist). A copy of the Murphy Checklist is attached as Exhibit G.”

“16.  In 2007, Conner observed that his ARR of the 5050 S. Greenwood property was not in the Rezko 5050 Greenwood loan file and in it’s place was the Murphy Checklist purportedly dated “06/15/2005.”…On June 18, 2007, Conner sent an email to James Murphy which provides, in part, “I spent time trying to track down work of mine that should be in a particular high profile loan file, though it is not–having been replaced by a checklist.””

“17.  In October, 2007, Conner had various communications with Mutual Bank’s Human Resources Department representative, Lana Schlabach. In an email communication of October 15, 2007, Conner directly referenced “Resentment over my mentioned discovery of the removal/replacement of an appraisal review that I conducted. That appraisal review contained substantial observations and suggestions. The transaction and parties involved were high profile in the media.I am under the impression that the FBI has since looked at the file.””

“18.  On October 23, 2007, eight days after Conner’s October 15, 2007 email to Schlabach attached as Exhibit J, Mutual Bank terminated Conner’s employment for pretextual reasons.”

    I hope that my first four videos have opened everyone’s eyes to the levels of deceit, deception and disinformation that both Factcheck and Politifact have proffered. They have been hiding behind a facade of false respectability and facile “fact checking” while at the forefront of the attacks on our Constitutional rights to know the truth about the person who occupies the White House.

    I hope you’ve had a chance to let them marinate, because here comes the bombshell that blows all of them out of the water.

    This ordeal must be so frustrating for Mr. Conner. Sad, too, Mr. Conner was not congratulated for his discovery rather than being fired from his job.

    The Bank filed two “motions to dismiss” according to the court summary; both were denied. The Bank also changed their attorney, too, during the constant “back and forth” volleying. And now, the FDIC is filling a “motion to dismiss” so close to the actual court hearing. If I read that correctly, it is 5/25/10.

    All that I can ascertain from the court summary is an effort to drag this out until they can find some way to dismiss the case. Wonder if that is being done to protect pp from any involvement at this point in time.

    Right now, “many of pp’s friends” are going to court. It would appear he is getting it from all angles. His “handlers” are protecting him well by keeping him out of court; eligibility lawsuits, Blago trial and now, this.

    Interesting how so much appears to gravitate back to Rezko, too. Where IS Rezko, anyway?

    Thanks for the update, CW…Linda

    As a former Chicagoan a couple of things in this paragraph strike me as odd-first Rosemont is near what was formerly called the “strip” near Mannheim Road/Higgins and the Rosemont Horizon. In the late 50’s-early 60’s the “boys” how the Mob is referred to there got out of town and relocated to Vegas-I would have been to small to know about this, found out later common knowledge in Chicago-I don’t know if they left because the heat was on or they became too notorious-or what? All I know is they left in a hurry. The only reasons I can think of that Obama would not allow casinos in Rosemont is pay offs not big enough, or the illegal gambling is just fine the way it is. Chicago and suburbs is well known for illegal gambling. The joke is bars close at 2 but the parking lots are full until 6 am. Also I have heard that they take 18 wheelers and modify the interiors and they gamble that way. I’m not a gambler, ok $1.00 on the lottery, I have tried a couple of times, track-the ships that go into international waters, my girl friends and I just can’t get into it.
    ” No, I have never been asked to do anything to advance his business interests. In 1999, when I was a State Senator, I opposed legislation to bring a casino to Rosemont and allow casino gambling at docked riverboats which news reports said Al Johnson and Tony Rezko were interested in being part of. I never discussed a casino license with either of them. I was a vocal opponent of the legislation. “

    “Citizen Wells, The Steady Drip and Atlas Shrugs deserve a Pulitzer” yes they certainly do and there are many others who kept at it through thick and thin for love of country and Constitution.
    I feel that it is an Epic National Tragedy also, I will be happy when it is over with great sadness, but we can now fix our nation so that it is renewed and respected and we can go back to our Constitutional roots. It will probably be called in the history books

    “The Restoration.”

    I like that, Michelle. I was so afraid that some hot head like Bob Campbell was going to start an Armed “Revolution” from behind his computer in China which is, of course, exactly what BHO wants.

    There is no need for armed Revolution, all we need to do is gather together in Local County groups of 25 Patriots and render our Indictments as provided for by our Founding Fathers in our Constitution and we can have that RESTORATION of the Rule of Law in America.

    Starla,

    “Starla // May 9, 2010 at 4:44 pm

    Re: Leo Patrick Haffey // May 9, 2010 at 3:56 pm,

    Thank you for posting your links to The Steady Drip, Dr. Sam Sewell’s (Aristotle The Hun) and Bunny Sewell’s Great blog, and to Atlas Shruggs – Pamela Geller’s fantastic articles she writes (about Odinga and Obama….)

    Leo, I have found a lot of info on these blogs to be excellent, thank you so much! I have read your excellent works, Leo!

    Listen Leo, just so you know, when you were illegally arrested and illegally incarcerated because you were a whistleblower on Obama and Obama’s co-workers, I made some
    telephone calls on your behalf, and
    I prayed daily for you to GOD in the Most Holy Name of Lord Jesus Christ…..

    I also rejoiced and thanked GOD when you were released. Leo, just so you know, Dr. Sam Sewell & Bunny Sewell stood publicly by you and protected you as well as many hundreds of people, Leo.

    I am very aware that the Judge Dumas who unfortunately was assigned your case is corrupt and is being investigated for criminal behavior currently. I am also aware that Tenn. is a cesspool of corruption like many states in the USA are now.

    Leo, America is falling apart at the seams in corruption. We have an Illegal Immigrant Terrorist Communist/Fascist/Marxist Radical Islamic Muslim Foreign Born & Domestic Terrorist sitting in our White House, and Congress and the Judicial branches of government are completely corrupt, rotted to the core, and can’t be restored, they are diseased to the point where amputation is needed, and they need to be cut off and abolished.

    Look what happened to the patriot Walter Fitzpatrick who was doing nothing wrong, obeying the laws, and trying to conduct a legal citizen’s arrest on a criminal who has been sitting illegally in office for many years, and yet, the USA thugs in government arrest our faithful & true patriot Walter Fitzpatrick.

    Wake up Americans.”

    Thank you for your kindness, Starla. Sam, Bunny, Citizen Wells and the rest of you True Patriots, saved my life.

    I am concerned about the fate of Walter Fitzpatrick. I am afraid he got some very bad advice from Bob Campbell and Carl Swensson.

    Perhaps, if we can get some Grand Juries in other Counties of Tennessee to investigate Walt’s predicament we can bring charges against the BHO Cohorts that arrested him and Huff.

    Walt’s alleged crimes, even if true which I doubt, are minor; and I frankly see no evidence that Huff committed any crime whatsoever.

    Regardless of guilt or innocence of these petty charges, there was NO JUSTIFICATION WHATSOEVER for BHO Cohort Gov Bredesen to call in a Police Force of 2oo+ men and SWAT Teams from outside of Monroe County. BHO Cohort Gov Bredesen is the one GUILTY of attempting to incite RIOTS in Tennessee.

    Anyone thinking of driving through Monroe County which is on Interstate 75 between Chattanooga and the Smokies on Vacation this Summer had better think twice with BHO Cohort Bredesen as Governor of Tennessee.

    ” I was so afraid that some hot head like Bob Campbell was going to start an Armed “Revolution” from behind his computer in China which is, of course, exactly what BHO wants.”
    believe me that is what no one should want. As one of the few people who witnessed the aftermath of the riots after the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was shot I can tell you it is a terrible thing.
    I had accepted a date downtown months before the shooting. The shooting occurred the rioting began my date called party is still on, do you want to go. I said yes, Mom almost croaked. I am so glad I did. From the suburbs to city of Chicago approximately 40 miles-I think we may have seen 10 other cars the entire way-all the rest were military vehicles. No traffic on the expressways-none-creepy. Some of the stuff on the way cracked me up-people decided to toilet paper the expressways. The party was on what the Chicagoans call the Near North, my date asked our hostess did you hear any snipers? she said yes every once in awhile you hear gun shots. I think the West Side, parts of South Side got burnt down-I can’t remember were they shooting at firemen? I forgot Mayor Daley big on dawn to dusk curfews 6-6 if you were out, you were arrested-this usually lasted 3 days-cooling off period I guess.
    Time passed-I remember asking my cousins who still lived in the city-I just don’t understand the City of Chicago-decades later the burnt out hulks were still standing-thats what the gangbangers took over. Makes no sense to me and Chicago could sure use the parking.

  9. CW,

    Just in case nobody types it, Thankyou for your site and your time. The stuff on Blago, Rezko, and Obama is very interesting. Sounds like Blago wants to take Obama down with him and Rezko now.

    Michelle,

    Before Rev King was shot in Memphis, it was a world class recording center.

    The Recording Industry in Memphis died the day Rev King was killed.

  12. Leo Patrick Haffey @ 6:49 pm
    It is amazing the repercussion of one bad act, violence is a terrible thing.
    Obama has several (hundred?) to answer for-I can’t believe it the flooding in Nashville made our national news in FL, but nothing on national news. Hello govt, people have relatives and friends who live there.
    I think someone is trying to incite the Mexican kids to riot, I think people should be prepared. I also think this is working against them big time.

  13. Leo Patrick Haffey

    Michelle,

    BHO is using the same tactics that he taught his Kenyan Cousin Odinga to use in an attempt to hold on to power.

  14. Leo Patrick Haffey

    Michelle,

    The border States have rough waters ahead because there are so many illegal invaders streaming in from Mexico.

    Less of a problem under normal circumstances in Nashville, but civil unrest is probable as the drug addicts who are no longer protected by ronal serpas can not get their drugs.

    I don’t know if you have ever been in the presence of a Crack Addict, but they are INSANE! They will do anything for another hit or Crack, anything.

  15. DON’T IGNORE THIS WARNING!

  16. Leo Patrick Haffey @ 7:06 pm
    Grew up in the suburbs you did not do drugs-parents would kill you.
    I’ve seen crack addicts portrayed on TV or cops tazing them on TV, I see how out of control that they can get-very dangerous to themselves and others.
    I think all the folks in the border states should be prepared for anything. Our biggest entry points were City of Chicago, or O’Hare.

  17. Leo Patrick Haffey

    I went on a tour of some of the worst hit flood areas in Nashville this afternoon and there was NO SIGN of ANY CITY, STATE OR FEDERAL relief efforts. None except about a dozen Nashville Police Officers.

  18. It’s great you are helping keep this in the public eye. The mainstream media, it seems, must have some kind of vested interest in burying it. I wonder who is behind this and how long it might hold up.

  19. Leo Patrick Haffey

    DON’T IGNORE THIS WARNING!

    Prairie,

    I don’t doubt that. However, this is no different from what BHO’s Cousin did in Kenya, killing Christians.

    Thus, the plan is BHO’s not the CIA, not George Bush’s plan. It is Obama’s plan to incite race wars and it is something that BHO’s Terrorist Pal Ayers has planned for over 40 years. Just read some of Ayers & Dohrn’s writings. Watch the videos about them. There is a video about this on the CW Nashville Thread.

    I know, Ayers was not protesting war, he was trying to start one. So how about that Fox endorsement of the movie?

    BTW, only msm coverage I have seen of the flooding has been on the Weather Channel- they gave it 30 seconds.

    Michelle,

    I was imprisoned in a 50 man cell full of Crack Addicts. Then forced to go to a “Treatment Center” where there were Crack Addicts from all walks of life. In Tennessee, there are lots of lawyers and some judges who are Crack Addicts and I am talking about people who live in the most exclusive neighborhoods in Nashville.

    Crack abuse is an epidemic in Nashville.

    I have never done Crack myself but I have seen lawyers, judges, postmen, CEO’s, policemen, construction workers, doctors, cooks and waiters etc. etc. etc. who have done crack and it was devastating to all of them.

    Yes, Ayers & Dohrn are blood thirsty filth like BHO.

    Having worked in the Motion Picture business, I have a little insight, particularly regarding Motion Picture Production Development Deals. I doubt that anyone above the Studio Production Development level at FOX knew much about Machette until it was already produced. After they have spent millions producing a film they are not going to can it.

    An old college friend of mine, Michael Beck, was in a similarly controversial film, The Warriors. There was a lot of uproar about it, but it did not provoke any violence that I recall.

    I am far more concerned about the inciting of riots by BHO than I am by a movie. They already have violence in Arizona and that will continue with or without the movie.

    Re: Nashville

    I hope I am wrong but I fear that we are going to have riots as all the homeless & hungry realize that City, State & Federal officials are not helping them recover.

    Ronal Serpas — and The Truth About Crime
    Posted: Apr 30, 2010 4:22 PM CDT
    Police Chief Ronal Serpas says he’s made Nashville a safer place.

    He’s got numbers to back it up.

    Those numbers helped him to get a new job.

    “It seems like they are fudging the stats,” said one expert.

    NewsChannel 5 chief investigative reporter Phil Williams discovered those numbers may not add up.

    “How is the public supposed to know whether to believe you or not?” Williams asked Serpas in a one-on-one interview before the chief resigned.

    NewsChannel 5 investigates how safe you really are.

  43. Leo Patrick Haffey @ 7:47 pm
    One of my neighbors is a nurse, I think it was on the cover of Newsweek maybe 5 years ago. It was a story of the devastation of crack/crank (whatever drug that is). Anyway it was about people who got on to that stuff with pictures. One was a girl who was beautiful, and she had pictures of what crack did to her face and health. In 5 years or less she looked like an old hag. Her skin color was wrong, not healthy looking, dark circles under her eyes, teeth gone. I thought I wonder if the most gifted plastic surgeon in the world could fix this. She only published this along with some other people so that others would not do what she did. Trying to appeal to the kids vanity-even my neighbor who was a nurse was shocked by the devastation of this stuff.
    When we had dates in the city of Chicago, sometimes we would have to walk through skid row and I would give any guy that asked a dollar. My dates would yell at me don’t do that, shut up it’s my buck, after all it was somebody’s lawyer, stockbroker, doctor,teacher or my girl friends father we knew he was down there but where. He had been a high flying businessman-our best guess a nervous breakdown.

    Tennesseans reaching out about Nashville flood

    By Jack Lail

    “Carter High, right, and Zach Orr, left, carry a canoe past a flood-damaged home on Friday, May 7, 2010, in Nashville, Tenn. They had used the canoe earlier in the week when the streets were covered by floodwater from the Cumberland River.”

    More videos on flooding

    “As Tennesseeans rip out walls, throw away damaged possessions and try to dry out the rest, they are also chronicling the disaster.

    Read about people reaching out about the Nashville flooding in this roundup of what bloggers have been saying the last couple of days.

    We Are Nashville | Section 303: The Cumberland River crested at its highest level in over 80 years. Nashville had its highest rainfall totals since records began. People drowned. Billions of dollars in damage occurred. It is the single largest disaster to hit Middle Tennessee since the Civil War. And yet 26no one knows about it. Does it really matter? Eventually, it will 26as I mentioned, there are billions of dollars in damage. It seems bizarre that no one seems to be aware that we just experienced what is quite possibly the costliest non-hurricane disaster in American history. The funds to rebuild will have to come from somewhere, which is why people need to know. It’s hard to believe that we will receive much relief if there isn’t a perception that we need it.

    For some ‘Idol’ alumni, Nashville flooding hits home | Idol Tracker | Los Angeles Times: Nashville, home of country music, is also home to a fair number of “American Idol” alumni. So when the storms over the weekend flooded the town — putting landmarks such as the Grand Ole Opry and its adjoining hotel under 10 feet of water — many of them were affected.

    Michelle,

    It may sound silly & naive to you, but until I was thrown in jail with Crack Addicts, I did not realize that “professionals” did crack. I thought it was a drug that only ghetto, street people did.

    Now I understand the bizzarre rulings of some insane judges that we are familiar with. The judges are CRACK ADDICTS. I now know the signs of Crack addiction so I guess my experience is a blessing in a way because there are Crack Addicts everywhere in America today including our White House and all crack addict share a common trait. They are HOPELESSLY INSANE!

    Anderson Cooper 360: Blog Archive – Dear President Obama #471: “Who’ll volunteer for Tennessee?” – CNN.com Blogs: (Tom Foreman of AC36) Dear Mr. President,

    Sometimes big news stories just get steamrolled by even bigger stories. It?s not right and it?s not fair, and it?s happening to Tennessee right now. The flooding is absolutely awful, and we owe the people there more attention. In between doing research and stories on the attempted terror attack in New York, and the oil spill in the Gulf, I looked at some of the pictures from Nashville this afternoon and I could not believe my eyes.
    Nashville flood: The aftermath

    * This photo provided by Gaylord Hotels via The Tennessean shows workers cleaning up in the of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn. The Gaylord Opryland Resort, the hotel next to the Opry house, was hit with up to 10 feet of water. Its first floor, power plant and technical hub were flooded. The resort won’t be taking bookings from now through October so extensive repairs can be made.
    * Downtown businesses are reflected in flood waters from the Cumberland River, Wednesday, May 5, 2010, in Nashville, Tenn. Water from last weekends floods continue to plague commerce, and local resources with little hope of a quick turnaround.
    * A man jumps across flood waters being pumped out of businesses along 2nd Ave., Wednesday, May 5, 2010, in downtown Nashville, Tenn. Businesses near the Cumberland River struggle to recover nearly a week after torrential rainstorms forced the river over its banks causing substantial damage to the downtown and residential areas throughout the state.
    * Equipment lines a street near the Cumberland River as cleanup work takes place after floodwaters receded in downtown Nashville, Tenn., on Thursday, May 6, 2010. As the rain-swollen Cumberland River continued to recede Wednesday, Nashville’s downtown remained without power and one of two water plants was disabled, but officials said progress was being made on both problems.
    * A service truck drives down a muddy street after floodwaters receded in downtown Nashville, Tenn., on Thursday, May 6, 2010.

    At Opry House, country music’s most famous circle will remain unbroken at tennessean.com | Tune In Music City: Cut from the stage of the Ryman Auditorium and inserted into the Grand Ole Opry House stage as a nod to tradition and history, the six-foot circle of oak was submerged in two feet of water during the flood of 2010. The rest of the waterlogged Opry stage will likely be trashed. But the circle, where Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Roy Acuff, Patsy Cline and other greats stood and sang, is irreplaceable.

    Flood recovery next steps Askingdirections Blog: If you are still unmoved by all that has happened here in Nashville, you’ll have to figure out your own next steps. I am beginning to doubt-even as national coverage finally kicks in–that there are enough pictures, stories or organizations to motivate people to (multiple choice here) inconvenience yourself, sacrifice, write a check or give online, contribute your tools, skills or availability for a few hours just to say, if only to yourself, “I still care about something, somebody. I do have a heart.” Feel free to prove me wrong.

    Suburban Turmoil: Just a Few of Thousands of Amazing Stories from the Flood: I told you that I had heard some amazing stories of bravery and heroism during the recent flood- and that’s saying something, since communication continues to be primarily through word of mouth in this part of Nashville.

    Pax Parabellum: #Nashvillefloods Update: We still have no land line phone service in most parts of Nashville. As far as I can tell all the flood waters have receded and those who have structures still standing are well on the way to clearing out the debris. Many parts of our state still have utilities out and many have no place to eat or sleep.

    Saturday Song: The Flooding Of The Grand Ole Opry CAFFEINATED POLITICS: In light of the horrific flooding that took place in Nashville this past week, today’s Saturday feature is slightly different. Instead of the usual song I instead want to convey a mood with pictures, music, and video. In so doing I want to underscore what was lost when two feet of flood waters covered the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, and rushed into the famed dressing rooms while destroying artifacts in the building. Only the last four rows in the back of the building were not covered with the muddy water.

    The Rude Pundit | Our Guns Are Way More Important Than Your Disasters:: While a good chunk of Nashville, which, in addition to being Music City, is also the capital of Tennessee, was underwater this week, the legislature kept at its job of making the Volunteer State safer for drunks.

    Even in surreal, there must be real | Domestic Psychology: One odd topic keeps reappearing. Car washes. Water is a valuable commodity that is needed for survival, but, in the midst of rationing, people are washing their cars. I know it’s wasteful, but I feel like the people washing their cars are the walking wounded. They are in shock and operating on auto pilot. They are trying with all their might to get back to some semblance of the life they had before the rains.

    The Clusterflood Tiny Cat Pants: We are, in effect, going through a communal death (though let us not loose sight of the people who are dealing with actual deaths), public “funeral” and divvying crap up process. We have had a great deal of community unity. This will not continue.

    The Hockey Schtick: Was Nashville’s flood caused by global warming?: Apparently, head of the National Center for Atmospheric Research Kevin Trenberth thinks so. However, according to the US Climate Extremes Index for precipitation, there has been no trend in US precipitation over the past 100 years:

    Confirmed: Nashville Flood Is Biggest Disaster to Hit Middle Tennessee Since Civil War – You Can Help | Conservative Blog Watch: The Nashville flood this past week did not get much attention from the democratic-media complex but it was the single biggest disaster to hit Middle Tennessee since the Civil War.

    Nashville Begins Cleanup after ‘500-Year Flood’,: Nashville resident Winston Hearn, who spent Monday helping friends bail water and sandbagging the plant, said he’s been amazed how quickly the city has rallied. “Nashville is banding together and the people who escaped damage are finding as many ways to help those who didn’t escape as they can,” he said Tuesday. “[A]s much as I’m heartbroken for my neighbors and my city, I’m really proud to be a part of this larger community that is stepping up to help those who are hurting.”

    Light at the End of the Tunnel | WithoutWax.tv by Pete Wilson: Our teams spent another day (day 4) out amongst the flooded homes of Nashville ripping up carpet, cutting out drywall and helping clean up. We ran into a contractor who was actually charging $8,000 to do what one of our teams is doing for FREE in about two hours. In another crazy set of circumstances I got to sit down with Anderson Cooper on the set of his show for a quick dinner over pizza as we talked about flooding, importance of volunteerism, social media, and life.

    Epic Nashville trip engraved into mind of UTM student on NWTNTODAY.COM: niversity of Tennessee at Martin student Kara Kidwell described the events that will be forever etched into her memory as “surreal.” The weekend getaway began with Kidwell and a couple of friends heading to Middle Tennessee to help “Parrot Heads “across the state welcome Jimmy Buffett to the stage of Bridgestone Arena on Saturday. The group’s spirits wavered some as they drove closer to Nashville amidst heavy rains and detoured traffic.

    Country Stars Shine for Flooded Music City Liveshots: City officials say Nashville needs to cut its normal water usage in half to sustain the system’s reduced capacity. Some upscale restaurants have started serving food on paper plates and wine in plastic cups to reduce the amount of water they use for washing dishe

    Flood Waters Pose Yet Another Threat to Louisiana’s Fishermen | TakePart Social Action Network: Important Issues, Activism, Environmental, Human Rights, Political News: The connection between Nashville and New Orleans has gone largely unreported. The abundance of water from the floods has to eventually go somewhere and, just like rivers from 30 other states, the Cumberland feeds into the Mississippi, which of course empties out into the Gulf of Mexico about 100 miles south of New Orleans.

    Enclave: 2010 Nashville flood: podcast on hyper-local blogging during our crisis: Christy Frink from Nashvillest and I joined Dave and Lucas, hosts of Nashville Tech Feed, to talk about blogging the disastrous events of the past week, including the myth of the piranhas in Opry Mills mall. You can listen to it over at my tumblr page.

    Nashville Flood 2010 (Bellevue Area) w Interview: An interview with an 80 year old flood survivor, of River Plantation in Bellevue.

    Rex Hammock’s RexBlog.com : The benefits of having your disaster snubbed by the national media: Second, by having a disaster devoid of the theatrics of cable news coverage, the local news community ? those who are paid and those who do it for passion ? realized they were serving as the only source of news ? not only for Nashville and the region, but for anyone with loved ones in the area. (As a parent of kids in the age-group, I always think of far-away parents of students at Vanderbilt or one of the other local universities as the audience I?m serving at a time like that.)

    When hyperlocal bloggers started seeing their traffic logs sky-rocket on Saturday and Sunday, they intuitively realized what was taking place ? and they responded. The website Nashvillest.com came of age over the weekend. And the social media crew at the Nashville Tennessean displayed remarkable skills at circumventing and hacking the Gannett-chain-issued content management system and editorial policies that seem to cripple Gannett websites and news properties from being real-time journalists.

  52. Could someone please weigh in on this problem?
    I am afraid that AOL is censoring emails.

    I got an email from a conservative site that I receive mail from frequently. It had the subject line:
    I used to be a liberal until they began to destroy America
    (or something very similar)
    and when I tried to open it there was a message that said it was unavailable.
    Then later I went back into my mail and the email was gone. Not in my old mail or in recently deleted mail…just gone.

    Opryland hotel flood photos, Nashville flood pictures need to be seen

    “Opryland hotel flood photos, Nashville flood pictures need to be seen

    The Opryland hotel flood photos and Nashville flood pictures need to be seen. Only the media isn’t showing the crisis and many in Tennessee are upset about it. The Oil Spill, terror in Times Square, and even the stocks on Wall Street have taken predominance over the Nashville flood. By viewing the photos, it is clear to understand why more people need to see what is happening.

    Slideshow: Opryland Hotel flood photos

    The death count is still rising, schools are still closing, government buildings are shut down, and the cost is skyrocketing. The Opryland Hotel’s basement is virtually destroyed, along with the possessions it contained. Many parts of Nashville are still flooded and the situation is dire. Today, 500 soldiers from Fort Campbell were in Nashville helping with recovery efforts.

    Slideshow: Opryland Hotel, Grand Ole Opry flooded (photos, pictures, videos)

    People need help. They need water, food, clothing, housing, and financial assistance. FEMA announced that they have approved 12,000 applications at the cost of approximately 1 million dollars. The mayor of Nashville said the damage in his city alone is already at $1.5 billion!

    The photos of Opryland, which is Nashville’s biggest convention center and a major conduit for the city’s revenue not only shows the toll the flood took, but also the impact on the economy the flood will have long term.”

    I am sort of Laser-focused on prosecuting cases against BHO & his Cohorts, but your post points out another reason why We the People need to take control of our Grand Jury system.

    DA’s are illegally prosecuting people all across the Country. We are all familiar with the Duke Lacrosse case, but that sort of political prosecution is rampant in America; and as we see from my case and the cases of Fitzpatrick, Huff and Sinclair, DA’s politically motivated by allegiance to the BHO regime are absolutely out of control in America now.

    FLAUNT THE AMERICAN FLAG DAY–Nationwide Protest Wednesday, May 12, 2010

    Sunday, May 9, 2010 | Kristinn

    Posted on Sunday, May 09, 2010 6:21:46 PM by kristinn

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2510090/posts

    “I am posting this announcement with Jim Thompson’s blessing and support.

    Patriotic Americans all across the nation are being called on to ‘flaunt the American flag’ on Wednesday, May 12, 2010 by wearing patriotic-themed clothing such as American flag style shirts, blouses, ties or jackets; American flag lapel pins or brooches; and by displaying the American flag at home, on your car or at your desk at work. You can even carry an American flag with you as you make your rounds on Wednesday and really flaunt that flag!

    This is being done as a show of support for the American families in Morgan Hill, California whose students attending Live Oak High School were ordered to remove their American flag style shirts so as to not offend Mexican students on Cinco de Mayo last week.

    Offended Mexican students walked out of class the next day and staged a protest march demanding “respect” for “our holiday” by demanding Americans not display the American flag on American soil.

    One protester, Luis Jimenez, was videotaped by KNTV-TV saying, “Yesterday, it was our holiday, Cinco de Mayo. All of, like, the Americans thought they could wear their flags and just flaunt them in front of us.”

    Another Mexican protester was videotaped by KRON-TV ripping an American flag out of the hands of an American that same day.

    In response, please send this message: We Americans will flaunt our flag on our soil anytime we please. If some folks don’t like that, we have an old saying for them, “America, love it or leave it!”

    Please e-mail and post this call to action on blogs, Facebook, Twitter and send it to you local and national Tea Party groups and talk radio hosts.

    (Note to all the race-baiting liberals and weak-kneed David Brooks types, this is not about race, or even about Mexico. This is about Americans standing up for America on American soil. If you can’t handle displays of patriotism, the same message above applies to you too.)

    If anyone asks who started this and why May 12, just say it was started by a TEA-ed off American and May 12 just seems like a good day to wear the red, white and blue.”

    URBANA, ILL. – A former sailor who defrauded the government of more than $280,000 and falsely claimed to be a Navy SEAL will spend the next 27 months in prison.

    Robert J. Warren, 45, of Sullivan, Ill. claimed to be a member of the elite counter-terrorism unit SEAL Team Six, a Prisoner of War in two combat operations, and to suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He fraudulently received $166,116 in Veteran’s benefits and $114,005 in Social Security benefits due to his purported service-related disabilities.

    JJ,

    Monroe County is 150 miles from Nashville on the road to Smoky Mountains National Park. I certainly will NEVER drive through Monroe County, Tennessee where they call in a 200 man Police Force for a peaceful protest by 20 Patriots.

    Monroe County is backwoods isolated. They could never get away with that sort of thing in Nashville. Too much media here. Too many well known Conservative Country Music Stars that would pitch a fit if BHO Cohort Gov Bredesen pulled that crap in Nashville.

    I used to be a liberal until they began to destroy America
    (or something very similar)
    and when I tried to open it there was a message that said it was unavailable.
    Then later I went back into my mail and the email was gone. Not in my old mail or in recently deleted mail…just gone.

    Illegal Immigrant Receives $145K “Deport Gift” From NY Taxpayers
    Posted by: Meredith Jessup at 5:43 PM
    An illegal immigrant with a long rap sheet got a $145,000 parting gift from New York City taxpayers before he was deported, after city lawyers decided his civil rights had been violated when he was held too long on Rikers Island.

    Federal rules allow local law enforcement to detain suspected illegal immigrants for 48 hours after their criminal cases are resolved, to give Immigration and Customs Enforcement a chance to pick them up and move them to federal facilities.

    ….. snip ……….

    The landmark settlement has prompted the Correction Department to dump scores of illegal immigrants on the streets, since federal officials often fail to pick them up within the required two-day window.

    Full story from the NYPost
    ///////////////
    So, NY wastes more money on illegal aliens. Illegal aliens don’t have “rights”. A bunch of idiots in NY shelling out money they don’t have. Just like DC.

  87. I love Arizona. They had the courage to do what should have been done by the Federal Government. Thanks to their bold step they have inspired other states to follow. Thanks to their bold effort they have forced all the ignorant illegals, traitors, and those who would attempt to American bad and wrong for wanting to be loyal to their country and honor their flag as in the story below.

    I heard one little Hispanic girl complain the boys were disrespecting the Hispanics by wearing the American flag on their holiday, It seems to me that the disrespectful group is the one who wore or waved Mexican flags in America. They are in America and it isn’t permitted to wave the flag of any other country. (I am not certain of the laws on this. So correct my ignorance if I am wrong).

    The Mexican May 5 holiday has been celebrated for years in America by Mexican and all other ethnic groups. The celebration does not offend me. I have always enjoyed it.

    What offends me is the waving of the Mexican flag as if America belongs to Mexico. What is even more offensive is Americans told they cannot wave or wear the American flag in their own country. There should never be any fear of anticipated conflicts for Americans wearing their American flag.

    What really offends me is a president who doesn’t know his immigration laws and bashes Arizona for following the laws in defense of ILLEGALS. HOW”S THAT FOR SUPPORTING LAWLESSNESS OVER THE JUST AND LAWFUL!

  88. I have been wondering what Obama has on everyone because he gets generals to swear allegiance and gets all democrats to do his bidding and such…just what does he know that is so big that it makes them all shake in their boots…
    Portaguese…you might be right…it may just be that he knows who killed JFK and can prove it.

    This is happening because the Federal Gov. is told by Usurper Illegal Alien Barack Insane Obama in the White House to NOT enforce the current Federal Immigration laws that are on the books.

    B. Hussein Obama should be removed immediately from the White House for his Daily High Crimes & Treasons against 310 + Million USA American citizens, as he is NOT a legal USA president and Commander In Chief. BHO/BS is NOT even a legal USA citizen, he is an Illegal Immigrant and he is truly a Con-Man Serial Criminal that decided that Satan the Devil was his God and Father as Allah, and that constantly lying was fine as long as he could lie to conseal his true agenda to destroy the Sovereignty of the USA, and to destroy the USA people.

    Lord Jesus Christ told me that GOD ALMIGHTY The Most Holy Trinity stands against Barack Hussein Obama II/Barry Soetoro because

    1. In his arrogance, BHO/BS refuses to repent of his sins against GOD The Most Holy Trinity and BHO/BS rejects Lord Jesus Christ as his God and Savior from sins & Hell Forever Fire, and as his Savior to Heaven Foerver Life in Eternity.

    2. Lord Jesus Christ told me GOD is against BHO/BS for his part in promoting abortion murders of innocent unborn infants.

    3. Lord Jesus Christ told me that BHO/BS is fulfilling Holy Scriptures that were written about him as BHO/BS is the son of perdition, and the man of perdition in the Holy Bible. Lord Jesus Christ gave to me Wwarnings of GOD to give to humanity and I am writing them down.

    Lord Jesus Christ told me that The Forever Living Creator GOD, who is ALMIGHTY GOD, The Most Holy Trinity – stands against Barack Hussein Obama II/Barry Soetoro because:

    1. In his arrogance, BHO/BS refuses to repent of his sins against GOD The Most Holy Trinity, and BHO/BS rejects Lord Jesus Christ as his God and Savior from sins & Hell Forever Fire, and as his Savior to Heaven Forever Life in Eternity.

    2. Lord Jesus Christ told me GOD is against BHO/BS for his part in promoting abortion murders of innocent unborn infants, and because Barack Hussein Obama II/Barry Soetoro is a false prophet promoting Islam, who is a Serial Liar who has lifted his arrogant lying soul against GOD ALMIGHTY the Most Holy Trinity, Jesus Christs’ Church, and Jesus Christs’ people.

    You are right and actually what Arizona did is what the Neo-Commies do everyday with the help of the EXTREMIST FRINGE MEDIA. They ridicule Conservatives to make us riot and get riled up into saying something stupid or becoming violent. The Arizona Law exposed them into saying something stupid (Obamaliar & his Cartel of the EVIL US CORPORATION) and it made the RACE-ist of La Raza expose their plan and evil invasion and how violent they can get.

    HOORAY for ARIZONA now everyone else needs to be UNITED with them. United We Stand against all Form of Terrorism.

    Discoveries might reveal origins of Southeastern N.C.’s first inhabitants

    “WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH | A local captain and his crew have discovered a unique rock and nearby artifacts that might help reveal how the first people came to Southeastern North Carolina thousands of years ago.

    Geologists said the rock, called black chert or novaculite, was previously thought to only be available in vast quantities in the mountains of Arkansas. Zulu Discovery, a local underwater exploration company, found a very dense version of the rock dozens of feet below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean off Wrightsville Beach. Chert was used by the first people in North America, called Paleo-Indians, to create the stone tools they needed to survive.

    The discovery of black chert off local shores could rewrite America’s prehistory by supporting a theory that Paleo-Indians might have come to the continent via a coastal route rather than by land, said Phil Garwood, a geology instructor at Cape Fear Community College who first identified the local rock as chert. The exact route Paleo-Indians followed will always remain a mystery, but clues have come in the form of the tools they left behind.

    “This is a piece of the puzzle,” Garwood said.”

    The images in this article are taken from various public domain sources. The descriptions are from the writings of Horace Kephart, who lived in a cabin on the North Carolina side of the Great Smoky Mountains from 1904 until 1907. Kephart had a good eye for the folkways and a fine ear for the dialect of the Backcountry folk of this place and time.”
