Blagojevich trial delayed, Retrial April 2011, Chicago Tribune feedback

From the Chicago Tribune.

“A federal judge agreed Friday to delay former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s retrial until April to give his defense team — down to just two lawyers — more time to prepare.

U.S. District Judge James Zagel, who had tentatively planned for the retrial to begin in early January, postponed its start until April 20.

Prosecutors objected to the delay, pointing out that Blagojevich’s two remaining attorneys took part in the first trial. “The faulty premise is that they are starting from scratch,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Reid Schar.

But the defense said the two will have to take on much heavier roles in the retrial.”

From the Chicago Tribune.

“Those of us who work for the Chicago Tribune speak with our readers every day. That conversation survives on our credibility and your trust. We understand the humbling truth that neither of those is assured.

Today we need to talk with you about painful developments that have threatened that credibility, that trust.

On Oct. 6, The New York Times reported that the Tribune Co. had been engulfed by “a culture run amok.””

“Much of the New York Times story was disturbing, but one passage particularly troubled us: It called into question the independence of the newsroom and this editorial board.

In June 2008, according to the story, Tribune Co. Chairman Sam Zell approached then-Editor Ann Marie Lipinski at a meeting, “saying that the Chicago Tribune should be harder on Gov. Rod Blagojevich. … In a news meeting later the same day, she found out that Mr. Zell was in negotiations to sell Wrigley Field to the state sports authority.” Lipinski says, “It was hard to avoid the conclusion that he was trying to use the newspaper to put pressure on Blagojevich.””

“Blagojevich was arrested in December 2008. Among the charges: that he sought to pressure Tribune Co. to fire members of the Chicago Tribune editorial board. Tribune editorials had been discussing the governor’s removal from office since October 2007. At the time of his arrest, the Tribune reported that negotiations on Wrigley Field had resumed shortly after the company had rejected the state’s offer.”

“Zell has denied that he sought to use the newspaper for business purposes. No one from the editorial board was present for the conversation between Zell and Lipinski. We can, however, say with certainty that Tribune Co. executives — from Zell on down — have never tried to influence this editorial board. Their approach has been completely hands-off. Completely. They have had no impact whatsoever on our Blagojevich editorials. We realize that we cannot prove a negative. All we can do is tell you the truth and ask you to believe us.”

The Chicago Tribune has done a decent and sometimes excellent job of covering Rod Blagojevich. They can be faulted, along with the rest of the mainstream media for not covering the complete Obama stories.

    Justice Lewis Powell ruled:“ Such an (Grand Jury) investigation may be triggered by tips, rumors… or the personal knowledge of the grand jurors.”

  4. On Saturday in Fairbanks, AK., a retired Superior Court Judge, Winston Burbank, ordered the personal records of Joe Miller to be release to the public.

    The RETIRED judge stated; “Mr. Miler has a legitimate expectation of privacy of these documents, however, Mr. Miller’s right to privacy is indeed outweighed by the public’s significant interest in the background of a public figure who is running for the US Senate.”

    Tow things struck me here:.
    1. What right does a RETIRED judge have to order anything?

    2. What is good for the goose is good for the gander! If Mr. Miller is forced to release his records based on a retired judges order, then Mr. Miller should have the right to DEMAND that BO release all his personal records.

    I think this judge just gave Joe Miller “standing” to see obama’s records. I hope he takes advantage of the opportunity.

    By the way, this same judge was appointed to the beanch by Lisa Murckoswia (sp) Joe Miller’s opponent in the senate race in
    Alaska. So much for fair and balanced huh?

    And they’re drunk on power.

    They don’t just hate our Republican, conservative, libertarian, strict constructionist, family values guts. They hate everybody’s guts. And they hate everybody who has any. Democrats hate men, women, blacks, whites, Hispanics, gays, straights, the rich, the poor, and the middle class.

    Democrats hate Democrats most of all. Witness the policies that Democrats have inflicted on their core constituencies, resulting in vile schools, lawless slums, economic stagnation, and social immobility. Democrats will do anything to make sure that Democratic voters stay helpless and hopeless enough to vote for Democrats.,

    Thanks so much for posting that fine video “Marxism in America” by Lt.Gen.
    (Ret.) W.G. Boykin! This is one of the very best you’ve shared with us, and
    I have already e-mailed it. Everyone in America should hear this military man give a well-delivered, well-reasoned, succinct message about what we are facing here and now.

  14. IMAGINE

    If only there were ethical conservative journalists with enough money to start a competitve to Fox news station to report facts 24/7, so much of the sophistry and taqiya could be over come.

    I can imagine the different progams that could be offered. One to report the documented facts, one to offer a panel to discuss the facts, another to report the convolutions and distortions of MSM, and another to present moral and legal arguments and even one to answer the publilc’s questions.

    What a television station this would make. It would leave Fox in the dust, since it would deal with the facts about the Obama protection in the Blago trials and investigation, hail Lt. Col. Lakin for the silent hero he is, report the facts about the tea party rallies, Muslim violence around the world and challenge Obama’s elligibility and religeon. It could reveal all the anti American the Communist, New Black Panther, Mulsim documents and expose them without having to let them present their sohpistry in a “fail and balanced way.”

    It could feature late night forums much like this one where any one of us could contribute news, ideas, or questions.

  18. JUDGES’ CORRUPTION HAS GONE UNCHECKED BECAUSE STATE LAW ALLOWS IT

    Good to hear from you again, RM. I agree completely with your observations. My first thought was – why is a RETIRED judge making any kind of official order? This smells really bad.

    Did you see the video that Free Speech posted concerning “Marxism in America” by Lt. Gen.(Ret.) W.G. Boykin? He encapsulates the issue in plain terms that anyone can understand. IMO, this should go viral.

  25. Hi Cabby….

    That was my first thought too….why is a retired judge giving any orders! But if I were Joe Miller, I sure would be approaching that judge asking for an order to uncover bummers records too…

    Yes I did see Lt Gen Boykin’s video…he’s a real American hero….and he does know what he’s talking about…believe me.

  26. The Judge Said – the public’s right to know about candidates outweighed the right to privacy.

    http://thesteadydrip.blogspot.com/2010/10/judge-said-publics-right-to-know-about.html

    So I guess now we (the public) will finally find out about:

    MISSING-HIDDEN DOCUMENTS:

  27. OH YEAH?

    The Judge Said – “the public’s right to know about candidates outweighed the right to privacy.”

    If that is so, how is it that Barry can cover up all his papers? We must send this Judge’s statement to every judge who denied to hear the suits against Sotoero beased upon standing. Doesn’t “the public’s right to know” give the public “standing”?

  28. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2010/10/wikileaks_proves_wmd_found_in.html

    This is a VERY important announcement. First, it unequivocally proves that the Liberals have placed politics ahead of Americans. John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Obama and many, many others had access to the facts, and the LIED to the public and said there were no WMD’s in Iraq. That claim is now OBVIOUSLY false; the number of WMD’s is immaterial, as just one can kill thousands, especially VX NERVE gas. Second, it proves that the UN, the British, the United States were correct that Saddam Hussein had not destroyed or accounted for all of his WMD’s. Third, it lends ENOURMOUS CREDIBILITY to the Veterans whom have personally told me that they assisted in the destruction of ‘VX Nerve Gas Shells’ and were involved in armed combat with losses destroying Al Qaeda camps in Iraq-when the war began! The latter is something that the Democrats and Liberals still deny. The reason the WMD information was classified and not released was to prevent Al Qaeda from looking for them; George Bush took it in the shorts politically to protect Americans. The Democrats, as listed above, knew about the WMD’s and LIED for political gain. They took advantage of George Bush’s patriotism, his devotion to our personnel in harms way. This should be on the front page of EVERY newspaper in America. Evil is as Evil does, and when it comes to Democrats, it’s just about everything.

    I hope everyone on this blog, regardless of your ‘registered’ political party reads this. The democrats have crossed many ‘lines in the sand’ but they have just proven themselves to be Evil, not misguided, not mis-informed, but just plain EVIL.

  29. I just heard The Rev. Jessee Jacksooon(Rush emphasis) on MSNBC state “There are more black people than members of the Tea Party?
    WHAT THE #ELL DOES THAT MEAN? – We out number you if there is a race war OR anyone who is a member of the Tea Party and black is NOT BLACK!!!
    Don’t forget it is his son who is up to his eyeballs in Chimcago corruption and GE -Alias NBC and MSNBC treat them(father & son) as the God’s Honest Truth.

  30. http://www.prisonplanet.com/welcome-to-the-greatest-depression-california%e2%80%99s-best-and-brightest-face-homelessness-poverty.html

    At least CBS admits unemployment is not a measly 9.5 percent like the government claims. It puts it at 17%. Actually it is closer to 23% and will soon eclipse the unemployment rate during the first engineered depression.

    Most people realize Obama’s “Summer of Recovery” was a cruel joke. There will not be a recovery. The plan is to turn the U.S. into yet another third-world slave labor gulag.

    The 99ers are about to have their homes stolen and their meager unemployment checks cut. They will be out in the street. Basically the only choice they have is to get rid of the government now selling them and their children out to a global elite that specializes in converting the planet into a slave labor plantation. Most of the world works for less than two or three dollars a day. The 99ers are about to join them if they don’t get educated fast and stop playing by the rules. It’s a rigged game. The only other choice is to be a slave.

    Not long ago, the president took a meeting. He’s late, which apparently is becoming more and more common with him. The meeting was almost cancelled. In strolls the president, joking with an aide. He plops down on a sofa, leans over and claps another guy on the back asking how he’s been. Apologizes for being late, says he was “held up”. He laughs some more. The meeting begins. After just ten minutes, during which time the president appears to almost totally withdraw into himself, an aide walks in and whispers something to the president, who then nods and quickly stands up, shakes a few hands and tells another aide to update him later on the rest of the meeting. As the president is walking out he is laughing at something yet again.

    Although we cannot really prove that this report by the fellow using the moniker, Ulsterman, is accurate, I have read enough other independent reports that certainly give plausibility to his “insider reports.” I think that common sense of our CW astute observers would attest to that also. In addition, we see him ourselves acting like an idiot on TV.

    Unlikely as they will drum up some other excuse like lack of standing outweighs the public’s right to know.

    Others will simply cite the ruling by the judge who said “This has been tweeted and twittered on the Internet” and say the issue is settled.

    “The Judge Said – the public’s right to know about candidates outweighed the right to privacy.”
    Good one, Sam.
    We have been between Scylla and Charybdis for ever so long, now we are between truth and hypocrisy. I wonder which one will win?

    NC Tea Party message as follows:
    ————————

    M. Ray Wood, Craven County Board of elections chairman, issued a written statement saying that the elections board is aware of isolated issues and that in each case the voter was able to cast his or her ballot as desired.

    So what about all the voters that did not notice their votes were cast for Democrats? Doesn’t sound like an isolated issue to me.

    Your welcome, I think all citizens need to be aware, no matter which state. Looks like fellow citizens are keeping, eyes and ears open. Lawyers, this means a person witnessed a crime correct?

  47. Dictatorship reigns supreme in Tennessee and the USA
    JUDGES’ CORRUPTION HAS GONE UNCHECKED BECAUSE STATE LAW ALLOWS IT

    Oct. 24, 2010) — It’s 9:03 a.m., 23 October 2010. We have now seen four judges, a couple of district attorneys, the governor and the attorney general of the state of Tennessee involved in protecting a criminal enterprise.
    I’ve seen this before. It’s going on in the military. There is no justice in a dictatorship. That’s what’s been going on here. It’s a dictatorship in the military and it’s a dictatorship on the outside. If it doesn’t get stopped soon, we’re going to become like some third-world or fourth-world nation. It’s a takeover of our government and rendering us as subjects. And you see it being played out in real time, and real time is right now.

    NC Tea Party message as follows:
    ATTENTION!
    Forsyth County – 100 ballots cast in alphabetical order at a single poll the last hour of election day, people allowed to vote that can’t recite their address correctly, a woman changing clothes and returning to the polls to vote again- and being allowed to do so! These are all things I’ve seen with my own eyes. In New Hanover and Craven Counties people voting a straight Republican ticket are seeing the machine cast a straight Democrat ticket just before they pull the lever. http://www.newbernsj.com/articles/machine-91656-screen-voter.html

    =========================================

    repubs have had nearly 3 years to prosecute the vote fraud of bo and his co-conspirators and they failed to act. Now I would not be a bit surprised if bo keeps control of congress by vote fraud.

    This is same video from Texas Darlin with this explanation as to why David Zucker made this clip—-hopefully Madame Boxer will get her much needed rest, along with Madame Pelosi.

  50. What http://www.thepostemail.com/2010/10/24/dictatorship-reigns-supreme-in-tennessee-and-the-usa/

    Judges in the state of Tennessee are rigging not just the grand juries; they’re rigging the regular juries. They’re rigging all the juries, and they are held from a criminal consequence because they’re protected by district attorneys, the governor, and then the attorney general of the state of Tennessee.,, And there are attorneys who are afraid to speak out because if they don’t work in the system, then they will be ostracized from the system, or something worse will happen to them or their families, because those kinds of threats are being conveyed in the community. People are being beaten up; they’re being locked up as innocent people.

    Democratic Representative Robert Brady told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell his strategy for getting out the vote in Philadelphia: “We still have the street money and we’re very knowledgeable.”
    Instead of allowing that statement to stand as a classic gaffe, Ms. Mitchell gave her guest an escape hatch five minutes later. We wonder if someone might have suggested something in Ms. Mitchell’s ear piece since the follow-up didn’t come immediately after the Congressman’s statement.

  55. Mr. Wells

    I have to say with all due respect that I am a little disappointed that I posted a comment at 12:17 pm providing one of your bloggers, Cabby at 12:o7 an answer to her question and it has been almost 5 hours and that comment is still in moderation. Not to mention you have posted yourself during that time.

    But that is OK – you may delete it along with this comment as well. I will continue maintaining my own blog and commenting there. I just happened to see that Cabby asked a question and I knew the answer, unlike the rest of your bloggers who have not even bothered to answer her question. Also, I have been reading your blog for well over two years and also some of my bloggers comment here as well. But you may be assured I won’t bother again.

    Respectfully, a fellow North Carolinian

    How is it that Joe Miller has to show his employment records and Obama who was campaigning for almost 2 years was NEVER forced to show his records?? How can the republicans demand to see Joe’s in order to save Murkowski, but did not help us in the least bit to discover Obama’s??
    *********************************************************

    The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press petitioned the courts to see Mr. Miller’s employment records. http://www.rcfp.org/index.php The courts granted access.

    But what bothers me about the court’s decision regarding Miller’s records is this. Prospective voters know the candidate has refused to release these records voluntarily. Now, voters should have the chance to cast their votes for a candidate who will not tell them who he is, unencumbered by the court. I think the court overstepped its bounds here. Unfortunately, even if Miller appeals the decision on this legal ground, he looks as if he has something to hide – again. (I had already found ample reason to reject Mr. Miller’s candidacy before I learned he had refused to release records. But his refusal would have been enough. That’s what always bothered me about the insistence of some people they had the right to see Obama’s critical personal documents. Why? If he refuses to establish he is eligible for the job, we should not give him the job. And now that he has the job, people convinced he is ineligible could ask themselves: if I am unable to find in the public record Obama is Constitutionally qualified for the job then, how did those D’s who swore to state election officials he was eligible for the job, to get them to print his name on the ballot, ascertain beforehand he is a NBC? That’s the crux of the citizen complaints of election fraud filed with state A’sG (in applicable states).)

    As for why the courts in this case recognized the general principle raised by Petitioners asking to compel Miller to provide his records, of a ‘public right to know,’ but have not applied a similar approach to Obama’s records (assuming they have been asked using this same argument by similarly well situated Petitioners), well, the ‘public’ do not elect the President; the Electors do.

  59. GEESH! I gave the wrong cite for my comment on the press lawsuit to release Joe Miller’s records. The correct link is http://alaskadispatch.com/dispatches/politics/7209-judge-orders-speedy-action-on-millers-employment-records
    And the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press were not the Petitioners; these were the Alaska Dispatch and three other media outlets.

    Sorry for the confusion.
