October 3, 2011, William Cellini trial, Tony Rezko status hearing, Blagojevich sentencing, Will Rezko testify?

The William Cellini trial begins October 3, 2011. There is also a Tony Rezko status hearing scheduled for October 3, 2011. Apparently the Blagojevich sentencing hearing will begin soon as well. Will Tony Rezko be a witness in the Cellini trial? Historical trends say no.

    Listen FOLKS – After watching the antics of our once wonderful country in terms of politics, business and culture I found this appropriate theme. We older commenters will well remember this logo of a once innocent and happy times. The final blow will be the collapse of the IMF. Look at Drudge’s headline now. The IMF needs a bailout. “It’s TOO BIG to fail”.

    Obama’s ‘Hate the Rich’ Campaign
    By Lloyd Marcus

    In his so-called jobs speeches, Obama exploits class envy shrouded in fairness. President Obama continues to escalate his divisive assault on achievers, purposely pitting Americans against each other.

    Obama’s “Hate the Rich” campaign appeals to our lower nature and encourages the sin of covetousness. If Obama’s despicable campaign proves successful, it will be a sad commentary about who we have become as a people and how far we have fallen as Americans.

    It angers me that Obama and his minions in the liberal media have put achievers, risk-takers, on the defensive. It angers me that Obama’s followers think that they are entitled to the fruit of someone else’s labor.

    Americans are extremely generous and willing to help people in need, domestic and foreign. But no one is entitled to share in the bounty resulting from someone’s risk, blood, sweat, and tears. Any government which confiscates and redistributes wealth is immoral and evil.

  6. http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/presidential-campaign/183797-time-to-bring-in-sarah-palin

    Without Sarah Palin, the Tea Party is separating out to a secondary political element with minor figures.

    For the new conservative values to stabilize and advance, Palin might be a necessity. She is an archetypal figure, like John Lennon or Reagan; one that hits a primal chord in the psyche that brings awakening to some and horror to others. My guess right now is that 2012 will bring Perry/Romney, or Perry/someone else, but necessity could just as well make it Palin/Perry or Palin/someone else.

    The Grizzly Mama has the animal spirits and, as she has said, a “servant’s heart.” She will do the right thing. But without Perry or Palin in the White House in 2012, that which came in with the dust of the Tea Party in 2009 will be gone with the wind by 2012.

    Exclusive: Orly Taitz on her Meetings with Congressional Staffers and Legal Advisors


    by Dr. Orly Taitz. Esq.

    Atty. Orly Taitz met with congressional chiefs of staff, senior advisors and legal counsel for several senators and congressmen on Thursday, September 22, 2011 in Washington, DC

    (Sep. 26, 2011) — I met with legal counsel, chiefs of staff and senior advisers for four senators and three U.S. Representatives, and I also forwarded information to five more. The senators’ offices and staff that I visited were Sen. Coburn, Sen. Inhofe, Sen. Rubio, and Sen. Lee. In Coburn’s office, I think the meeting was the most promising. I had an in-depth meeting and discussion with his chief of staff, Michael Schwartz.
    I suppose, senators, Coburn,Inhohe, Rubio, and Lee will have to act, to investigate Obama, otherwise they will be guilty of misprison of felony.

    Hey, CW, I’ll bet those senators would be interested in what you have reported, about “Pay To Play” in Illinois, and Obama’s involvement.

  8. IF the prosecutions request is granted to squash Stuarts drug abuse and other activities there is a good chance for a mistrial…Stuarts drug use and extra marital affairs are NOT “irrelevant” as the prosecution states, Stuart got caught lying in the Rezko trial saying he went, “cold turkey” after his arrest, later admitting he “used” several times after that…They will NEVER let Rezko testify, Chris Kelly is dead and their chances of getting Blago to flip in this short time frame is slim to none…The only thing we are going to get out of this trial is the extent Judge Zagel and Patrick Fitzgerald will go to protect the President…

  9. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/cain-nearly-quit-campaign-florida-straw-poll-says-115734617.html

    As we discussed the early phase of the Republican primaries, he told me that before coming to Florida, he had nearly called it quits on two occasions.

    “The thing that I’ve learned about myself in this campaign–because I’ve never had this happen to me before on a single challenge–is that I’ve gone to the brink, ready to pull the plug…” Cain said. That’s how frustrating a campaign can be.”

    But despite his recent surge in support, few expect Cain’s momentum to carry him on to victory at the Republican National Convention in 2012.

    Cain insisted that the prognostications of a few pundits won’t stop him from pressing on as far as his donors will carry him. At the same time, though, he said that this campaign will be his last foray into politics.

    “I’m not planning to run for another public office,” he said. But regardless, it’s been “a hell of a challenge.”

  10. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/09/could-this-be-the-week-sarah-palin-gets-in-the-race/

    Saturday’s P5 or Presidential 5 Conference Straw Poll sponsored by the Florida GOP was a clear rejection of the two frontrunners Rick Perry and Mitt Romney. Despite strong speeches by Herman Cain—who won the poll with 37 percent of the vote—the delegates were definitely looking for another candidate and that is sure to be another signal to Palin that she can still get in. Of course, Perry’s poor performance at Thursday night’s Fox News/Google debate is another sign that getting in to the race late isn’t easy.

    Steve Bannon, who made the Palin documentary, “The Undefeated” and remains close to Palin, thinks it’s a “big opportunity” because “the current list of candidates have failed to catch the imagination of either the conservative movement or the general electorate.”

    The rumor is that Palin may have a major announcement.


  12. F(o)S, was touting the McGinnis hit piece on Palin just days ago:

    Free Speech | September 22, 2011 at 1:13 am |


    “Sarah Palin has been destroyed by Joe McGinniss’ no-holds-barred biography. It exposed all her lies, cover-ups and secrets,” a source close to the former governor told the Enquirer. “As a result, she has been told by her advisers that it would be political suicide to announce a White House candidacy. The press and her opponents would have a field day digging into the dirty details of her background.”

  13. I merely posted a quote from an article as did CW in his article on the subject of Sarah Palin. It was newsworthy at the time and something that Sarah Palin had to deal with to remain politically viable. Sarah Palin weathered that storm. Obviously the McGinnis Book is a non-issue, but now that there is talk that Sarah might get in the race, the demRats want to keep smearing her with yesterdays news. The despicable demRat smears of Sarah Palin should not be allowed to continue on CW.

  14. Rush: The debate was pathetic.

  15. Free Speech | September 26, 2011 at 12:17 pm |
    Rush: The debate was pathetic.
    “Except for Santorum and Cain” (-:

  16. Free Speech | September 26, 2011 at 11:48 am |

    You smeared Palin left and right when you hyped the McGinnis trash, while apparently avoiding any mention of disgust with the smear piece. You were intent on taking down Palin so your man Perry could advance. Guess that didn’t work out so well. So don’t make like now you were just “reporting” hahah. You are an Alinsky style disinfo agent. We figured you out a long time ago.

  17. Gov Perry is still beating romney despite poor showings in the debates. Cain is still in single digits tied with Sarah Palin at 7%.

    According to the survey, which was released Monday, 28 percent of Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP say they support Perry as their party’s presidential nominee, with Romney at 21 percent. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is at ten percent, with Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who’s making his third bid for the White House, former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and radio talk show host Herman Cain, and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, all at seven percent. The poll indicates that Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota is at four percent, with former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania at three percent and former Utah Gov. and ambassador to China Jon Huntsman at one percent.

  18. How many Freepers can endorse Herman Cain in one thread?


  19. Free Speech | September 26, 2011 at 12:36 pm |

    Why is Sarah Palin even in any poll question ?

    She ain’t running.

  20. Pat 1789 | September 26, 2011 at 12:40 pm |

    I don’t know why Palin is in the Poll. Ask CNN. The point is even after the last debate Perry is still beating romney and Cain is tied at 7% with Palin who has not even declared her candidacy.

  21. Ask CNN? They are such a non-LSM source!! Bwahahahah!

  22. Cain is able. And definitely not a RINO!

  23. Watch for the libs to try to push Palin now in order to attempt to split the truly conservative vote. She would siphon off votes from Cain with the libs’ idea that this would leave the field to the two frontrunners – Fairy and Mittens.

  24. We are facing a similar situation to 1964, when the true conservative, Barry Goldwater, was spurned by the establishment wing of the Republican Party, which did everything they could do to defeat him. They were, of course, successful, but his influence laid the groundwork for the Reagan victory years later.

    People like Karl Rove and others are deeply entrenched in the establishment and will try everything within their power to direct the outcome of this election. We the People must hold firm and not let them dictate the winner.

  25. Rush: Perry does not do well in debates but boy does he win elections.

  26. Rush: Christie getting in the race would help Perry because he would take votes away from romney.

  27. Authentically Black!

    The answer to the question: what is Herman Cain and not Barack Obama?


  28. LOL!
    The demRats say, “Palin would siphon off votes from Cain. ”

    LOL! Do you demRats think Palin might take all 7% of the voters for Cain away from him? LOL!

  29. CW….thanks for comment (9/25/11 4:17pm)

    What’s going on??? Forget the candidate BS, we got bigger problems, maybe?

  30. Of course demRats like F(o)S are pushing for Palin to run, but most Rs don’t want her in, mainly as they see her as unelectable:


  31. Cabby – AZ | September 26, 2011 at 1:15 pm |

    So are you saying Mitt or Perry are no Barry Friggin Goldwater’s ?

  32. Rush

    The same people pushing Christie are the same Rino’s that pushed Mc Cain.

  33. CW
    Do I need to do something?

  34. Rush: demRats and “squeamish” rinos like romney. This Country does not want a “moderate” like romney. A conservative candidate will win the election by a landslide.

  35. Pat 1789 | September 26, 2011 at 2:07 pm |

    I wonder if he is singing like a canary?

  36. I am NOT pushing Palin. Sarah will do what she chooses to do. I am heartened by the latest CNN Poll that shows that Perry is still beating romney despite his sub-par debate performance.

  37. Rush: There is nervousness about romney’s ability to win and that is why the rinos are pushing christie.

  38. He’s just wierd and is on his own private page, that probably isn’t about improving our country.

  39. Herman Cain Sheds Dark-Horse Status in Crucial Florida.

    Cain’s straw poll win might not signal an earthquake yet, but it helps him in some very significant ways.


  40. For Tea Party Followers, Cain Win Is Hardly a Surprise

    He has one intangible quality that many of the Republican candidates sorely lack: authenticity.


  41. The Latest CNN Poll was taken after the September 22 debates. This poll is VERY GOOD news for Gov Perry. Scientific Polls like CNN’s are much more reliable than Straw Polls that can be bought or skewed by demRats trying to take down the Republican Frontrunners.


    Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s so-so performance at Thursday’s GOP presidential debate may not have hurt his candidacy as much as some predicted.

    Mr. Perry still leads the Republican primary field with 28% support, according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Monday. Mitt Romney came in second at 21%, showing a marginally tighter race from the last CNN poll, released earlier this month. Back then, Mr. Perry polled at 30% with Mr. Romney at 18%.

    The new poll was conducted Friday through Sunday…

  42. Pat 1789 | September 26, 2011 at 1:51 pm |
    Cabby – AZ | September 26, 2011 at 1:15 pm |

    So are you saying Mitt or Perry are no Barry Friggin Goldwater’s ?
    Pat, you guesster, Chester. 🙂 I remember Goldwater and he set the “gold” standard for conservatives back then. Feelings were at a fever pitch.

  43. Cain calls Obama’s rhetoric ‘bull****’…

    Cain nearly quit campaign before Florida straw poll, calls Obama a ‘liar’

    Rick Perry Still on Top

    Rick Perry delivered a shaky debate performance last week and unexpectedly lost the Florida GOP Straw Poll, but the first poll conducted after his rocky weekend shows the Texas governor still leads the Republican field.

    In a CNN/ORC International Poll conducted between Friday and Sunday, Perry came out on top, with 28 percent of Republicans and independents saying they support the Texas governor. Perry was followed by Mitt Romney at 21 percent. Newt Gingrich rose to third in the poll, garnering 10 percent while Ron Paul, Herman Cain and Sarah Palin each received 7 percent. Rounding out the bottom of the pack were Michele Bachmann at 4 percent, Rick Santorum at 3 percent and Jon Huntsman at 1 percent.

    Without Palin in the mix, Perry’s stock rose slightly, taking in 30 percent of support while Romney received 22 percent and Gingrich received 11 percent.

  46. http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/united-states/110926/rick-perry-mitt-romney-cnn-poll

    The poll was conducted after two Republican debates in which Perry’s performances were considered disappointing.

    “Did Perry’s performance in the most recent debate affect the horse race? Maybe yes, but maybe no,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. “Perry’s support is down just two points, and Romney is up only one to three points – and since all those numbers are well within the sampling error, it doesn’t look like much has changed, possibly because average voters aren’t as plugged into the debates as political junkies are. If the debates have had an effect, it may be mostly in favor of Gingrich, whose support went from 5 percent in mid-September to 10 percent now.”

    GOP presidential debate also focuses on issue

    Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne has issued a formal opinion upholding the 2006 voter approved law (Proposition 300) which denied privileges granted citizens to extend to illegals.

    In his opinion published yesterday, Republican Horne specifically disallows Arizona community colleges to classify illegals as in-state students for tuition purposes. The opinion was requested by state Sen. Linda Gray (R-Dist.10) after the Maricopa County Community College District board considered allowing those unlawfully in the United States to qualify for in-state tuition. Horne said the practice would violate state law and may subject community college districts and members of their boards to litigation, financial liability and other penalties.”

    The Usurper obviously heard this joke probably from Rev. Wright.

Does anyone know what the zones are? 9% corporate tax, 9% personal tax, 9% national sales tax. Eventually eliminating IRS, payroll taxes, estate taxes, capital gain taxes. Does the combined gov’t income from the 999 cover Social Security, medicare, medicaid? He talks about individual savings programs for SS for the younger people but what about those at or approaching SS?

    As Governor Romney chided Perry over giving in-state tuition to illegal immigrants, no one pointed out that before he was a candidate in 2008, Romney supported a “path to citizenship” for illegal immigrants.

    No one reminded the audience how he hammered McCain in particular for holding the same position he once had held or how he demagogued Giuliani and Huckabee for being soft on illegal immigration.

    “This could be extreme political repositioning, even for Romney,” stated the Boston Globe.

    While Perry was chided for signing an Executive Order to mandate a vaccine for young girls to prevent HPV, which can lead to cervical cancer, no one mentioned the Romney-Care provision that covers abortion for fifty dollars. And no one reiterated that Perry admitted he was wrong to sign that order, while Romney stands by the healthcare plan he still boasts of, even as it bankrupts his state.

    No one pointed out that Romney and his wife have been financial supporters of Planned Parenthood. And on the issue of gay marriage, no one pointed out it was Romney who forced Town Clerks to license same sex partners and change the wording on certificates from “husband” and “wife” to “Partner A” and “Partner B” BEFORE same sex marriage was even the law in Massachusetts.

    Like clockwork, it seems as if Rick Perry’s energy level starts to sag in the second half of the two-hour Republican presidential debates. And it’s costing him. Some wonder if Perry’s back is bothering him. In June, he had an experimental procedure when he had his spine fused during back surgery (story here).

    Regardless of the cause, Perry didn’t seem well last night, said Liliana Ros, Miami-Dade County Republican Party State Committeewoman. Ros, who’s neutral in the race, was in the debate hall last night and said she spoke briefly with Perry during a commercial break when the candidates would mingle with the crowd.

    “He grabbed my hand and held on to it. His hand was so cold, like ice. And he was sweating,” Ros said. “He didn’t seem well, like he was in pain or he was sick or something. I don’t know what it was, but something was definitely wrong.”

    Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam also noticed Perry was sweaty and looked physically uneasy.

    “He looked uncomfortable. He was shifting his weight from one leg to another,” Putnam said. “I felt bad for the guy. It did look like he had a bad back, but I don’t know.”
