Obama returns to crime scene in Chicago, Giannoulias campaign, October 7, 2010, Audacity of corruption

“Giannoulias is so tainted by reputed mob links that several top Illinois Dems, including the state’s speaker of the House and party chairman, refused to endorse him even after he won the Democratic nomination with Obama’s help.”…Lynn Sweet, Chicago Sun-Times

From the Chicago Tribune September 26, 2010.

“Barack Obama will visit Chicago on Oct. 7 to campaign for Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias, a White House official said Sunday.

Giannoulias, the state treasurer, is running against U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., for the Senate seat Obama once held.

Obama plans to attend a fundraiser for Giannoulias and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the official said.”

You remember Giannoulias.

From Citizen Wells August 27, 2008.

“Like the ill-advised connection to Obama in Aurora, thanks to Dan Shomon, Obama is mentioned in the same discusion with all these problems with Giannoulias.”
“Shomon’s main activities are political campaigns and helping Obama and his friends like Alexi Giannoulias who is now the Treasurer for the State of Illinois.”
“We think it’s HIGHLY unethical of Dan Shomon or Tom Weisner to exploit the taxpayers of Aurora for political purpose. Barack Obama’s credibility is also risked in the process of Shomon and Weisner’s games at the expense of taxpayers.
“Aurora Mayor Thomas J. Weisner gave Shomon the lobbying gig in exchange for political work, including getting the endorsement of Barack Obama back in 2005 when Obama first said he would remain “neutral” in the heated mayoral race.”
“In the 2006 Democratic primary, for example, Obama endorsed first-time candidate Alexi Giannoulias for state treasurer despite reports about loans Giannoulias’ family-owned Broadway Bank made to crime figures. Records show Giannoulias and his family had given more than $10,000 to Obama’s campaign, which banked at Broadway.”

“Alexi Giannoulias, who became Illinois state treasurer last year after Obama vouched for him, has pledged to raise $100,000 for the senator’s Oval Office bid.

Before he promised to raise funds for Obama, Giannoulias bankrolled Michael “Jaws” Giorango, a Chicagoan twice convicted of bookmaking and promoting prostitution. “

  1. Sound familiar?
    “…..The Muslims had a taste for nationalism, jingoism, and victimology. Their illiterate, oppressed mobs could be whipped up to a fever pitch.”


  2. Search the Web on Snap.com

    They’re not sending MO to Chicago to campaign, instead?

  3. Interesting… No wonder the Democrats are so nervous. Fraud here, fraud there, fraud everywhere. Look under this rock, oh fraud. Look over at those ballots, oh fraud. When the levy breaks…………

    Okay. Let’s try this.

    This is not my moniker, but when I post under my moniker, I go into moderation.

    What is Search the Web on Snap.com, anyway?

    Anyone know?

  5. Search the Web on Snap.com

    Since last night, all of my comments are in moderation. I had never seen this tag — Search the Web on Snap.com — before then.

    Very strange.

  6. Search the Web on Snap.com

    OK. Now my comments are out of moderation, but under the new name.

    I see why my comments would have been in moderation for posting under a new name.

    But my comments that got the moderation message had my moniker on them, under the new one, which I did not put in the box.

    Thanks, C.W. for rescuing me.

    Sign of these wild and wacky times that I didn’t check out logical explanations.

    Embarrassment. I get kind of bold when I’m in moderation and think no one will see my comments.

    What part of Vattel’s clear and concise Definition of a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN do Communists, Socialists, Liberals and Democrats not understand?


    When I first began writing about the “Natural Born Citizen” qualification for the Presidency, few lawyers had an understanding of what I meant. Fewer still, had read the basis for that Constitutional language derived by our Founding Fathers from Vattel’s Law of Nations. At the time of its publication, Vattel’s Law of Nations was used as a textbook in colleges in the United States and Europe. Furthermore, it was the principal legal treatise used by our Founding Fathers in writing our Constitution. To this day, the Law of Nations is still used as a reference text by such legal scholars as Justice Antonin Scalia.

    The following is the passage from Law of Nations that was used as the definition for a Natural Born Citizen by our Founding Fathers:

    “The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

    Update on Lt. Col. Lakin’s persecution:


    September 27, 2010 @ 2 pm ET

    We have now filed our Petition for a Writ of Mandamus in the Army Court of Criminal Appeals, but the trial court is going to proceed with a hearing tomorrow (Tuesday) as scheduled. Stay tuned for more news after the hearing.

    Halelujah! Finally a Lawyer with sense enough to file a Writ of Mandamus.

    Col Lakin’s Lawyer’s should have a Writ prepared for SCOTUS as well.


    As in Marbury, We the People shall prosecute our cases against Barrack Hussein Obama petitioning the United States Supreme Court for a Writ of Mandamus compelling Barrack Hussein Obama to abide by the Constitutional Contract that he entered into with We the People on January 20, 2009 and uphold his Oath to abide by the Supreme Law of the Land, the Constitution of the United States of America.

    It is stated in United States v. Butterworth, 18 S. Ct. 441, 169 U.S. 600 at 602 (1898),

    “The office of a writ of mandamus is to compel the performance of a duty resting upon the person to whom the writ is sent. That duty may have originated in one way or in another. It may, as alleged in the present case, have arisen from the acceptance of an office which has imposed the duty upon its incumbent. But no matter out of what fact or relations the duty has grown, what the law requires, and what it seeks to enforce by a writ of mandamus, is the personal obligation of the individual to whom it addresses the writ.”

  13. I am surprised that no one noticed that the dimWit sunstein didn’t even know when the Constitution of the United States was ratified.

    This IDIOT sunstein is a harvard “law” prof and he thinks the U.S. Constitution was ratified “a century… ago” (in 1910). I wonder if this BOZO sunstein like bo also thinks the U.S.A. has 57 States

    ====================================================“Some conservative legal thinkers like Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas think that the Constitution means what it originally meant. That means we should understand the document by going into a kind of ‘Time Machine’ and capturing the public understanding of the public that ratified the document a century… ago.”
    – Cass Sunstein
