Patrick Fitzgerald protects Obama, Rezko Blagojevich prosecution orchestrated delayed, John Thomas FBI mole, Chicago Tribune

From Illinois Pay To Play September 28, 2011.

“Patrick Fitzgerald: Intrepid Crime Fighter? Or, Politically-Driven Leaker?”

“Was Bernard Barton, Jr. relocated to Chicago on a mission to help
bring down Tony Rezko and, thereby, shield a young, articulate,
African-American politician from his potentially incriminating
associations with Rezko? Too conspiratorial, you say? Maybe. Maybe

Let’s review the highlights of the Silent Mole, starting with an
admission from the Complicit Newspaper.

The Chicago Tribune identified Thomas as a Mole in this May 4, 2007,
article written by David Jackson.

John Thomas bought and sold downtown office buildings and helped other
property developers secure multimillion-dollar mortgage loans.

But the high-living dealmaker had a double life.

Thomas, who was convicted of federal business fraud in New York in
2004, has been serving as an undercover government mole in Chicago for
at least a year as part of an ongoing federal investigation into fraud
in the financing of large-scale commercial real estate deals, the
Tribune has learned.

Records made public so far do not identify the targets of the federal
probe and the FBI and US Attorney’s Office declined to comment for
this article.

That same May, a concerned citizen spoke on the phone with a
well-known Chicago Tribune reporter.  The concerned citizen was trying
to chase down information as to when the Tribune learned that John
Thomas was an FBI mole while working in Rezko’s office.  “Thomas” was
Barton’s new name in Chicago after being relocated from New York,
where he faced prosecution and eventual sentencing for fraud.  (The
complete story of Burton-Thomas is well documented and won’t be
rehashed here.)

The concerned citizen asked the reporter why the Trib had sat on the
Mole’s story since, at least, 2006.  That timeframe was implicitly
provided by the Trib reporter when stating that Patrick Fitzgerald
warned the paper, a year earlier in May 2006, that outing the Mole
would cause problems for the investigation and could prove dangerous
for Burton-Thomas.

Then, in a moment of indiscretion, the reporter added that Fitzgerald
told the Trib in May 2006 that identifying the mole could also
“influence the election.””

“Back when the Mole was entangled with the Eastern District of New
York, Patrick Fitzgerald was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the
adjacent Southern District.  The two would later rendezvous in

So, in February 2002, shortly after Burton-Thomas was relocated to
Chicago from the Big Apple, his nefarious past was outed by a Trib
reporter, but lacked any hint of his cooperation with the feds, nor
reference to his real name.”

“Now, jump ahead to February 2008. Sun-Times staff reporter David
Roeder elaborated on the Mole’s activity:

But sources said that, for more than two years when he was giving
information to agents, Thomas provided a fly-on-the-wall look inside
Rezko’s real estate operations and his desperate attempts to keep his
projects afloat.

Sources said Thomas also logged frequent visits to Rezko from Gov.
Blagojevich and U.S. Sen. Barack Obama​ (D-Ill.).Blagojevich and Obama
were among the many politicians for whom Rezko raised campaign cash.
Neither has been charged with any wrongdoing.

Thomas had good reason to help. He hopes to get probation for his own
felony fraud conviction in a New York case. And he said he wants to
redeem himself in the eyes of business associates and his family.

Sources said Thomas helped investigators build a record of repeat
visits to the old offices of Rezko and former business partner Daniel
Mahru’s Rezmar Corp., at 853 N. Elston, by Blagojevich and Obama
during 2004 and 2005…

Sources said the government had him wear a hidden wire to record
conversations with a Chicago alderman — but that he did not record
Blagojevich or Obama.

Why no recording of Blago and Obama?  Maybe because Blago had
notoriously loose lips and might say something that implicated the
Protected One, Obama.

One month later, in March 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama
was subjected to an underhand, slow-pitch softball interview by the
editorial board of the Sun Times. The transcript of the interview (no
longer available on line) includes this exchange:

Q: In November 2006, you and your campaign exchanged with us written
interrogatories. So a lot of the quotes I will give you just come out
of those. The campaign said that you probably had lunch with Rezko
once or twice a year. You sort of added four or five times, something
like that.

John Thomas is an FBI mole. He recently told us that he saw you coming
and going from Rezko’s office a lot. And three other sources told us
that you and Rezko spoke on the phone daily. Is that true?

A: (Obama) No. That’s not accurate…
John Thomas aka Bernard Barton
Okay, maybe the Mole misremembered.  A bad memory might explain why he
was never called by the USAO as a witness in the Rezko trial. Or,
perhaps, there was another reason.

On June 21, U.S. District Judge Elaine Bucklo sentenced John Thomas to
three years probation. His court records are sealed. His mission
accomplished.  And the extent of his subsequent success in Chicago
commercial real estate is displayed on his face today.”

As most of you know, the Citizen Wells blog has stated that Patrick Fitzgerald has been protecting Obama for some time and should have prosecuted Blagojevich much sooner.

Patrick Fitzgerald is just as guilty of corruption as those he prosecutes. I could prove this in a court of law.

    “Liberals plotting a challenger rather than sticking by a failed leader”


    “President Obama is facing an internal revolt. Liberals are openly considering a primary challenge for the Democratic presidential nomination. Ralph Nader, a big-government maverick and former Green Party candidate, recently called for a group of left-leaning Democrats to run. If a prominent opponent emerges, Mr. Obama’s re-election efforts would be fatally crippled.

    It is not just conservatives who are angry with Mr. Obama. Radicals are also seething. They view him as shallow and inept. After once deifying him as the liberal messiah, they feel betrayed – by both his incompetence and his deviations from socialist priorities. In their eyes, Mr. Obama has abandoned key leftist causes.”

    A recap of the past 3 years under Holder.


    September 26, 2011

    “Inside one of the most brazenly corrupt “federal agencies in American history

    “Under Obama and Holder, the Department of Justice has been transformed from the world’s preeminent law enforcement agency into one of the most corrupt federal bureaucracies in modern history,” says WND Managing Editor David Kupelian. “It has become, literally, a Department of Injustice.”

    In “DEPARTMENT OF INJUSTICE,” you will learn how, as part of the Obama administration, America’s top law enforcement agency:

    * is hiring only civil rights attorneys who are far leftists – in blatant violation of federal law and department policy – as proven by an astonishing analysis which found that of the 106 lawyers hired in 10 different sections of DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, every single one has a résumé filled with connections to far-left organizations, including the “Queer Resistance Front” and “Intersex Society of North America.”

    * is risking a repeat of the easy-lending cycle that led to today’s catastrophic housing crisis and economic tsunami, by requiring banks to lower mortgage underwriting standards and approve loans for minorities with poor credit as part of a new crackdown on alleged “discrimination.”

    * has threatened to prosecute CIA officers whose interrogation of terrorist operatives helped lead to the location and termination of Osama bin Laden, even as President Obama basked in glory for bringing the al-Qaida kingpin to justice.

    * has implemented the scandalous “Fast and Furious” operation in which federal law enforcement personnel have been coerced into facilitating the purchase of thousands of firearms from U.S. gun dealers by people connected to ultra-violent Mexican drug cartels.

    * is using the “Fast and Furious” scandal – which has already cost many lives, including that of a U.S. Border Patrol agent – as a pretext for imposing draconian new gun-control regulations on law-abiding, federally licensed U.S. firearms dealers;

    * is attempting to gain early release for over 5,000 crack cocaine users in federal prison – largely because they are black.

    * overruled the mostly African-American city of Kinston, N.C., whose residents had decided to get rid of the party affiliation of candidates in local elections. Obama’s Justice Department insisted that without the Democratic Party on the ballot, blacks just wouldn’t know who to vote for.

    * aborted its already-successful prosecution of the most blatant case of voter intimidation in modern history perpetrated by nightstick-wielding members of the New Black Panther Party.

    * sued the state of Arizona for passing an immigration law that mandated enforcement of already existing – but unenforced – federal border and immigration laws.

    * is defying a key federal law, the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and woman and prevents courts from using the Constitution’s “full faith and credit clause” to force recognition of same-sex marriage on all 50 states.

    * is mandating that al-Qaida-trained terrorist Umar “underwear bomber” Abdulmutallab be tried as an American criminal suspectand not a foreign enemy combatant – thus allowing him to lawyer up and avoid the very questioning that has proven in the past to yield precious intel capable of saving thousands of lives.

    And believe it or not, that’s just the beginning.”

    You all know this already, but I fell like repeating it for any visitors…

    The phrase “by any means necessary” entered the popular culture through a speech given by Malcolm X.

    Here’s what Malcolm X intended to bring about, by any means necessary:

    You will never get real freedom and recognition between black and white people in this country without destroying the country, without destroying the present political system, without destroying the present economic system, without rewriting the entire constitution. It will be a complete destruction of everything that America supposedly stands for.

    – Malcolm X

    And here’s a quote from the current resident of the White House, who found what he was looking for “only” in Malcolm X…

    Only Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me. The blunt poetry of his words. His unadorned insistence on respect. He promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline.

    – Barack Hussein Obama

    … and who shares his journey with Malcolm X:

    But my journey is part of a larger journey – one shared by all who’ve ever sought to apply the values of their faith to our society. It’s a journey that takes us back to our nation’s founding, when none other than a UCC church inspired the Boston Tea Party and helped bring an Empire to its knees.

    – Barack Hussein Obama”

  4. It was made perfectly clear in the 2 trials of Rod Blagojevich that the prosecution and the judge were more concerned with protecting Obama than they were with a guilty verdict….first they never called Rezko who’s testimony would have prevented a second trial and he would have been found guilty on all charges…second, their refusal to turn over the 302’s and thier lame excuse, “I read them and theres nothing there”…third, the leaker??? was it someone inside the fbi or U.S. Attorney’s office or was it John Wyma himself…fourth, Patrick Fitzgerald’s lack of interest in “who” tipped off John Chase, “It wasn’t me”, just doesn’t cut it….We can be certian who ever was the leaker also tipped off Obama and his staff…fifth, Rezko never being called to testify and him waiting for over 3 years to be sentenced. sixth, the current law suit of Frawley vs. Weaver, it answers numerous questions including payments made from Rezko to Obama…which we can all be pretty sure that the feds knew about this for years…am I forgetting anything????

    “Nothing in the Constitution requires eligibility to hold the job”
    Yes. Here is an excerpt from a previous post on my blog, which should explain further the comment I made on your blog earlier today, to which you responded with the question, “Really?”

    The phrase “natural born citizen” is listed in Article II, section 1, as a condition of Presidential eligibility. And, the word “citizen” is listed in Article I, sections 2 and 3, as the eligibility requirements for Representative and Senator, respectively, put there almost 100 years before the 14th Amendment.

    No person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the age of twenty five years, and been seven years a citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an inhabitant of that state in which he shall be chosen.

    No person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the age of thirty years, and been nine years a citizen of the United States and who shall not, when elected, be an inhabitant of that state for which he shall be chosen.

    Get it? The Drafters used the word “citizen” in 2 (two) different contexts of eligibility for office, one to be President; and the other to be a member of Congress. (Technically, the wording for President applies to eligibility; whereas the term for Congress applies to actual holding of the position. This makes sense since members of Congress are elected directly – perhaps the Drafters did not trust the average citizen to choose the right person for the job – whereas Presidents are chosen by Electors who, it would appear safe to predict at the time, could not be anticipated to elect a President they were not certain was eligible for the job .) Since the Drafters used these 2 (two) different phrases, the tenets of statutory construction require that, we must assume, therefore, the Drafters meant 2 (two) different things. “When Congress includes a specific term in one section of a statute but omits it in another section of the same Act, it should not be implied where it is excluded.” Arizona Elec. Power Co-op. v. United States, 816 F.2d 1366, 1375 (9th Cir. 1987); see also West Coast Truck Lines, Inc. v. Arcata Community Recycling Ctr., 846 F.2d 1239, 1244 (9th Cir. 1988), cert. denied, 488 U.S. 856 (1988).

  10. Just the type of argument i will expect when push comes to shove.

    “hey, it only says i’m not eligible, it doesn’t say i can’t hold the job” LOL

    Can’t you just wait to hear this from acorn types, too?

    “hey, it only says my six infant kids are not eligible to vote, it doesn’t say they can’t vote!”

    This is what we’re coming to folks.
    I read in my daily bible reading this morning the same type of thing in Isaiah.
    Isaiah 59:14-15 nlb
    “Our courts oppose people who are righteous , and justice is nowhere to be found. Truth falls dead in the streets, and fairness has been outlawed. Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who tries to live a godly life is attacked”

  11. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    AMEN yo – Our Legal system is(or has) destroying us.

  12. The Constitution wasput there by our forefathers to be the alleged legal measuring stick of our so called society. More and more we are hearing so called INTERPRETATIONS of the Constitution that are designed by the alleged INTERPRETORS as the ACTUAL MEANING OF THE Constitution. First of all I do NOT BELIEVE that the Constitution in and of itself needs to be INTERPRETED. It is composed in clear and concise grammar that can be understood by anyone of high school level comprehension ability. Secondly only people who are intent upon attempting to change the meaning of it venture such intent. For those people it is obviously for the ultimate purpose of derailing the original meaning of our constitution,soas to promote their own agenda,and to make others believe that UP IS DOWN. Those who have a genuine interest in the Constitution do not need sombody to interpret it for them. If they slept through their schooling,or spent the time that was for learning to play video games then it is likely that THEY might need somebody to tell them what the contents of the Constitution says. But certainly they do not need somebody to tell them UP IS DOWN, they already think that because the LIBERAL SCHOOL TEACHERS have already done that to the children.

  13. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    And AMEN to you too oldsalt79.

  14. I have something to say that I think is important for everyone to know…….if they don’t already. That is the fact that as each day passes the leading edge of the slime tide is drawing closer and closer to completely inundating America. While everybody must surely see it approaching they have continued to sit on their duffs,in complete indifference. They THINK that they are safe,because they are well educated,and/or have millions of dollars to spend,and /or are well connected…ETC,ETC. The slime tide will ooze and slither over these people,and they will cease to exist,when sadly they could have helped to prevent the onslaught by building some dams. Now we are upon a sea which the enemy is also present.

  17. Hezb’allah Cells Active Worldwide, Including in U.S.
    By Reza Kahlili

    The terrorist group Hezb’allah, based in Lebanon, is establishing “resistance cells” worldwide under the direction of Iran, according to Mohammad Hussein Babai, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in the province of Golestan.

    The cells are already infiltrating the United States with the help of Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez and drug cartels.

    The Iranian Student News Agency, which is close to the Guards, reported last week that Babai, during a press conference, revealed that these jihadist cells began forming after the 2006 Lebanon war between Israel and Hezb’allah, and with the current Islamic Awakening, they have expanded their operations.

    Their mission, Babai said, is to help create an Islam-dominated world.

    Just the type of argument i will expect when push comes to shove.

    “hey, it only says i’m not eligible, it doesn’t say i can’t hold the job” LOL
    EXCELLENT, yo!! And you, Old Salt, are also on a roll this morning!
    That passage from Isaiah is surely a snapshot of what we are seeing today. I think of that verse, too, “Woe unto them that call good evil and evil good.”
    Bob strauss, the presence of Hezb’allah cells in our country ought to shake us up! Now, what about Iran’s intentions to send ships near our coastal waters? I see that is being pooh-poohed by some in high places, (and low also) because it is thought that Iran doesn’t have the capability to sustain them logistically. What about friends Hugo and Fidel being able to furnish fuel, etc.?

    We had better not be so dismissive. Our country is viewed as weak and a pushover, thanks to the one in the oval office and his minions.

  19. Look what Obama promising Arabs after 2012 vote

    The Obama administration told the Palestinian Authority it cannot significantly help advance a Palestinian state until after the 2012 presidential elections, a top PA official told WND.

    The official, however, said the U.S. will press for a Palestinian state quickly if President Obama is re-elected.

  20. Obama’s Legacy Revisited

  21. NO – TO ALLEN WEST!!!!

    For those few with personal political positions proposing Allen West be sent to Washington as a viable candidate or visibly acceptable as a Vice President, need be reminded of his quickly failed promises to those that elected him and the Nation as a whole. Without going through the entire list of “I’ll Demand Investigations” on Obama or the “I’ll personally see to it” on pushing criminal charges against Obama and the “I’m being sent to Washington to rid its corruptions”, ect, ect.. Here is a small snippet from Dr. Orly’s interview with Allen West’s Chief of Staff.

    “I also talked to the chief of staff for Congressman Allen West. I have to say that out of the seven legal counsel and chiefs of staff, this chief of staff for Allen West was the most unpleasant. When I met with the others, most of them led me to a room or office where we could talk and I could show them documents. The chief of staff for Allen West was really unpleasant. We were sitting in the foyer; he wouldn’t even sit down. I sat down and showed him the documents, and he just standing there. He sounded like a typical Obot.”

    She further explains that the Chief of Staff for Allen West declared that Allen West was not on any significant committee to make a difference in these criminal actions. Really? How pathetic. But again, I expect no difference from Allen West.

    If Allen West was the President or Vice, he would declare the same. I’m not on that committee, therefore, I can’t do anything. Allen West will not get reelected as a Congressman, little-lone a higher office. The Tea Party that got him elected has already assured that.

    Need I say more?

    PS – Remember Al Capone was put away with only income tax evasion.

  24. CW,
    I read a little background about our mutual prosecutor Fitzpatrick the other day. Seems he was famous before being involved in the Chicago crime, we call Obama’s past. Fitzgerald brought a guy in to testify for a grand jury, knowing the whole time that the person he was interviewing had nothing to do with the crime he was investigating. He did this to ‘entrap’ the witness. The witness was Scooter Libby, and he didn’t have ANYTHING to do with Valerie Plame or her public outing at the hands of a Colin Powel aid.

    So, we know that Fitzgerald is a political hack for the DEMOCRATS and has no interest in unbiased justice. He is directly INVOLVED in cover-up for Obama and his associations with Blago, Levine, the hospital board, the sale of the illegal senate seat, his illegal housing gift from Rezco, and some 600 million dollars of Iraq reconstruction aid that went mysteriously missing.

    I believe it’s all corrupt, to the very core, and the American people are starting to smell and feel the stench of our dear democratic party people. Just remember to remind EVERYONE you see that while politicians may be ‘dirty’ this sort of all out criminal administration has NO PEER in the last 150 years, and is starting to resemble Ulysses Grant for illegal behavior and pay to play.
