Blagojevich trial opening statements Monday May 1, 2011, Dozen jurors and six alternates will be picked from 45

“Why did the Illinois Senate Health & Human Services Committee, with Obama as chairman, create and push Bill 1332, “Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act,” early in 2003, which reduced the number of members on the Board from 15 to 9, just prior to rigging by Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich

From the Chicago Tribune April 28, 2011.

“Opening statements appear set for Monday at the retrial of Rod Blagojevich, more than eight months after the first jury deadlocked on most of the corruption charges against the former governor.

The questioning of prospective jurors in U.S. District Judge James Zagel’s courtroom concluded Thursday, but the judge gave both sides until Monday morning to mull how to use their peremptory challenges. Those allow the lawyers to dismiss jurors without giving a reason. Prosecutors can strike nine people they don’t want on the jury, while the defense has 13 challenges. A dozen jurors and six alternates will be picked from 45 people who survived an initial round of cuts.

Lawyers on both sides told the judge they then expect to take an hour each to give their opening remarks. The prosecution would then begin presenting evidence.

Over last-minute objections by the defense, several jurors are still in the running despite admitting in written questionnaires that they think Blagojevich is likely guilty of the charges, which include allegations he tried to sell a U.S. Senate seat. One man told the judge he downloaded as the ring tone of his cellphone some infamous undercover recordings of Blagojevich using expletives.
“Instead of ring, ring, ring, or whatever it does, it’s a derogatory quote” from Blagojevich, complained the former governor’s attorney, Sheldon Sorosky.

Zagel responded by saying he believes he judged the true feelings of the prospective jurors during the courtroom questioning, and that those who remain in the group of 45 can be fair.”

  1. Eligibility Lawsuits Failed. 2010 Elections Failed. The only option left to Patriots is the Grand Jury Process.

    Forms and Charges to INDICT BHO for his CRIMES

    Demand that your congressman, senators, County Sheriff, DA, State Legislators, Governor, and County Grand Jury Foreman indict and prosecute BO and his local co-conspirators in State Courts for these crimes:

    Murders and False Imprisonment of Opponents of the BO regime, Birth Document Forgeries, TSA Sexual Assaults & Illegal Searches, Union Assaults, Election Fraud & Voter Fraud, Identity Theft, Illegal Foreign Campaign Contributions, Aiding and Abetting of Muslim Terrorists, Poisoning of the Gulf of Mexico, Criminal Cover Up of Radiation from Japan Nuclear Meltdown, Theft of Private Property (Chrysler, GM, Pension and Retirement Accounts etc.), Embezzlement of Government funds distributed to Foreign Entities, WikiLeaks and other Leaks of US Secrets by the BO regime to our enemies, and War Crimes in Libya.

    If the politicians refuse to take action then form a Grand Jury:

    The Obama Lie That Drove the Birther Movement

    HOW DONALD TRUMP COULD PAY OFF THE NATIONAL DEBT!

    The National Debt is now $55 TRILLION Dollars .

    The Donald could use one of the most popular systems used throughout the world. It is called “The Old Pollish Million Dollar Lottery. Let me explain it this way. For simplicity I will use the 300 million population figure. Every day each member of a family will pay to the nearest Tax Center $1.00 per family member. Rounded out that comes to $3 Billion Dollars per month. Per year that comes to 12 times 3 billion to $36 Billion Dollars. Now – A Trillion Dollars is 1000 Billion Dollars.Now the Total U.S. Natl. Debt is $55 Trillion Dollars. Now divide $360 Billion into 55 trillion Dollars and the answer can be 152 or 1520 years to pay off the debt. Anyway WHO WILL CARE. By the way, the winning number will receive a $1.00 per year for a million years.!!

    P.S. –

    THIS IS WHAT 55 TRILLION DOLLARS LOOKS LIKE –

    $55,000,000,000,000.00

  5. The usurper had his nerve, whoever did that blatant forgery used what they found online as a template – Susan Nordyke’s birth certificate. How low can they go? I think they got the doctor’s signature off of Miki Booth’s son’s birth certificate. The dates below I believe are stolen from Lucas Smith’s Kenyan birth certificate.

    ===============================
    Yes, stein is grossly ignorant on the NBC issue, but unfortunately that is the case with most Americans also. As a practical matter the BC and NBC issues are not going to be resolved by Eligibility lawsuits. SCOTUS

SCOTUS clearly has no intention of hearing an Eligibility case prior to the 2012 election and the repubs in congress are not going to impeach bo on the BC issue.

    If Patriots want bo legally removed, it will have to be done by the Grand Jury Process.
