Alonzo Monk testifies in Blagojevich retrial, Blagojevich Chief of Staff and college pal controlled by Rezko

“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

“The last thing Sen. Barack Obama and Gov. Rod Blagojevich needed was that letter written by convicted Illinois influence peddler Tony Rezko promising he’d never rat out his pals.”…John Kass, Chicago tribune

From the Chicago Tribune May 17, 2011.

“Prosecutors say they intend to call Alonzo “Lon” Monk to the stand on Tuesday.

A third week into testimony, Monk could be one of the last major government witnesses.

At the first trial, he wasn’t always an effective witness. He often seemed defensive and ill-at-ease.

Monk can address the earlier years of Blagojevich’s governorship, as well as alleged shakedowns of businessmen in 2008.

He’s claimed Blagojevich and an inner circle plotted to profit from gubernatorial decisions from the outset of Blagojevich’s first term. He told jurors last year that the plan was to split ill-gotten gains after Blagojevich left office.”

“”He called me and he said we need to move on Stuart Levine,” Hayden testified. Hayden said Rezko told her he had already spoken to her boss, Blagojevich chief of staff Lon Monk, about the Levine reappointment and been assured the appointment would go through.

Hayden said Rezko laughed when she said she would have to check with Monk herself. “I took that to mean that I could go ahead and ask him, but it was already a done deal,” she recalled.”
March 19, 2008

“Levine also said that Rezko told him that he and fellow Blagojevich fundraiser Christopher Kelly “exercised the most influence” in Blagojevich’s kitchen cabinet. And Levine said Rezko told him that “all the major decisions in the governor’s office were cleared through [chief of staff] Lon Monk and through Mr. Rezko.”

“Mr. Rezko told me that he was able to have individuals appointed to state boards and was able to have individuals hired into state agencies and that he spoke very often — and in fact went over decisions — that Lon Monk would put into place,” Levine said.”
April 15, 2008

“Cari said he met with Stuart Levine at Rezko’s office in January that year. Rezko said he had the power to award contracts and get consultants hired through the governor’s then-chief of staff, Lon Monk, Cari said.

“Mr. Monk took direction from [Rezko],” Cari told the jury.

Rezko illustrated his clout by picking up the phone and apparently calling Monk in front of him, Cari said.”

FBI chart presented to the jury on April 28, 2008, shows 257 calls from Rezko’s phones to Blagojevich’s chief of staff, Lon Monk, between March 2004 and May 2004 alone.

  1. It has been reported that Obama uses one ss# now and he used a different ss# when he was in the senate. Actually he used two different numbers while in the senate. The one that is different from the one he now uses was supposedly verified by the gov’t.

    I wonder why anybody that brings up Obama’s ss# on the air, has their mic immediately taken away.

  2. John Kass was wrong about the letter….The only witnesses the feds have are self confessed liars with criminal pasts, working around these kinds’ of characters is what they’re good at…Look at Stuart Levine who was a key witness in the Tony Rezko trial and no one was more seedy than him, he even got caught lying on the stand…THE only reason the feds’ won’t call Tony Rezko and Daniel T. Frawley is because they gave both Blago & Obama money…

  3. Does anyone find it strange that ex Mayor Daley hardly get’s mentioned in any of this mess, even though nothing happened in Combine run Illinois without him getting a cut.

  4. As pointed out in the very informative session yesterday at the Woodrow Wilson Center, March 20 to May 20 is the deadline for the President to submit to Congress for approval for military action in Libya. So far nobody in Congress seems to care, and as one speaker on this tape points out Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, provides tacit cover for the action by couching it under the United Nations’ charter. Since when did the United Nations replace an act of Congress? Evidently, since this President and his SOS determined that Congress is obsolete, but didn’t bother to inform Congress that they are not hampered by the War Powers Act or the Constitution, Article 1, Section 8.

  5. I still want to know why the entire senate and congress are in total fear of Obama and his gang of cutthroats (czars)? It is very apparent that Obama has some kind of stranglehold on them or their families, or both.I have written ALL of them, asking that question, and in true corrupt political form, I received zero answers. They always refuse to answer a question that would require an honest answer. I think Obama should be jailed, if only for committing the felony of using several social security numbers, and covering his real birth place up. Even the black population has turned against Obama because of his lies and policies that are causing the blacks to again struggle for jobs, and a better life. If he (Obama ) happens to win a re-election, it will be on the heads of the black, illegal Mexican population, and uneducated whites that still think he is going to give them a better life. He has had nearly three years to help those people, and the only thing he has done, is alienate the blacks, whites, & Spanish people against each other. Wake up America, before it’s too late.

  6. everybody……..OT But important!
    Watch out for your retirement funds. If you are a Federal Employee very soon you could wake up one morning and discover that your boss has taken the pledged funding of your retirement BACK. If Soetoro,and Geithner have their way it will happen. They don’t seem to understand that there is a Federal Law against this sort of ROBBERY. Many Us companies tried the same thing. Some were successful because then there was no law against it. Now there is. But it would be very wise for everybody to consider rolling over their retirement funding into PRIVATELY held, and administered annuities. Some insurance companies still sell the old annuities that people bought during the depression. Mutual of Omaha,and Prudential are just two of these companies. Now might be the right time! Just a thought. The illegalisation of GOLD and SILVER could easily be next. If FDR could do it in 1933 then Soetoro will probably try to emulate him. You might have to be real quick.

    Watch out for your retirement funds
    This is atrocious, but it is going to happen! Furthermore, it won’t be long before this policy will extend to 401k’s and IRA’s held by the private sector.

    There have already been talks within the administration to “offer” financial “security” to holders of the above accounts, i.e., in exchange for the holdings now owned by private individuals the gub’mint would “guarantee” something like 3% return at retirement. At first, it would be a voluntary plan, but then eventually mandatory.

    At the end of the day (upon death) all remaining funds would be owned by the gub’mint. There would be no transferrals to beneficiaries, etc.

    Oh, one could say “Whoever would volunteer for such a plan?” Well, if the stock market crashes and things go south, do you want to bet how many would accept such an offer of “security”? It would probably depend upon how old one presently is. Watch, listen, and learn.

    “The eligibility questions that have dogged Barack Obama since before his election in 2008 are hitting the airwaves in New York today with award-winning talk show host Steve Malberg interviewing two of the key players in the dispute.

    Malzberg’s guests on his WOR NewsTalk Radio 710 program this afternoon will include Dr. Terry Lakin at 4 p.m. and author Jerome Corsi at 5 p.m.”

    Not being a conspiracy theorist I have found proof that BHO was born in the USA.
    If you look close with 400% + maginification you will see some sort of round indentation on this JPEG. What more proof do Certificators want ?
    News reader Savannah Guthrie from NBC says she felt BHO’s raised seal, TV news people always tell the truth.
    Case closed!
    I saw the seal as well and tried to point it out before but it’s NOT case closed. This is still just a digital re-creation of a Birth Certificate with an official seal. It’s not the Original and there is no proof the information presented is real. There were rumors of people in Hawaii purposely creating false BC’s the mess with the birther movement. In fact I think the Layered version online was done on purpose just to keep the controversy going. They love the political advantage they get from it. The only case closed would be to have a group of experts examine the REAL document and verify its age and origin. That will never happen.
    Sorry Jerome that ain’t going to happen

    TV always tells the truth, NBC news reader Savavnnah Guthrie touched and felt BHO’s raised seal. (-;
