Jesse Jackson Jr. takes medical leave for exhaustion, Raghuveer Nayak indictment, Obama pay to play buddies getting worried, Obama and Holder soon gone

“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

“Why did Patrick Fitzgerald, instead of protecting the citizens of Illinois as he has touted, prosecute Tony Rezko first, a businessman, instead of Rod Blagojevich, the governor of Illinois.”…Citizen Wells

“Why did Patrick Fitzgerald and the US Justice Department wait until December 2008 to arrest Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

Are the Chicago pay to play buddies of Barack Obama beginning to squirm?

Were they all expecting Obama to get reelected?

Are they concerned that a real Attorney General will replace Holder?

Are they concerned that some of the rats will squeal?

From the Chicago Tribune June 26, 2012.

“Jesse Jackson Jr. takes medical leave for exhaustion”

“U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s office disclosed Monday that the veteran Democratic congressman has been on medical leave from Congress for the last two weeks and is being treated for exhaustion.

The 17-year congressman’s office declined to say where he was being treated or when he is expected to return.

A statement issued Monday was the first public disclosure that Jackson has been on medical leave since June 10. During that time, Jackson’s office has issued at least 10 news releases, including a statement two days after he took medical leave in which he was quoted commending officials in south suburban Crete for withdrawing support for an immigration detention center.

Asked why Jackson’s office waited two weeks to tell his constituents about his absence, spokesman Frank Watkins told the Tribune that the lack of disclosure was a “family request.”

Just last week, a longtime friend of Jackson’s, Raghuveer Nayak, was arrested on federal fraud charges involving Nayak’s surgical centers. Nayak was at the center of the U.S. Senateseat scandal that sent former Gov. Rod Blagojevich to prison.

Jackson, 47, who has distanced himself from Nayak, remains under a House Ethics Committee investigation into allegations that Nayak offered Blagojevich up to $6 million in campaign cash to make the congressman President Barack Obama’s successor in the U.S. Senate.

Nayak had told federal investigators that Jackson asked him to raise campaign money for Blagojevich in hopes the then-governor would appoint Jackson to the seat, sources familiar with the investigation have told the Tribune. Jackson has denied any knowledge of fundraising in exchange for the appointment and has said he expects to be vindicated by the ethics panel.

In a statement he issued in 2010, Jackson did not deny Nayak’s allegation that he paid to fly a female “social acquaintance” of Jackson from Washington to Chicago at Jackson’s request. The lawmaker said then that the reference to a “social acquaintance” was a “private and personal matter between me and my wife that was handled some time ago.””

  1. Isn’t it funny how quickly things change, four years ago JJJ was chomping at the bit with the visions of BHO winning the Presidency and him replacing him in the Senate…Rezko was being prosecuted thinking he had a safety net with his soon to be President friend…Blagojevich thought he had this “thing that was f#2king golden” that would enable him to write his own ticket to power and success…Obama was a rock star, his popularity made him untouchable to the U.S.Attorney who had once targeted him…Now all is crumbeling for this entire crew and everyone that went for the ride.

  2. Bessie………………..
    The problem is the RIDE is NOT YET OVER. In about 135 days if nothing really big happens,we will have the switch to turn off the RIDE permanently, at our fingertips. If you don’t want to vote for Romney then VOTE AGAINST SOETORO. That is what my intention is. But…….to vote AGAINST Soetoro, I will probably have to stomach some very distasteful food. Such a side course is voting for Romney. Yes this will probably be the way I will vote simply to help get rid of the STENCH from the GARBAGE in the WH. To do this I will probably be forced to either hold my breath or wear a gas mask. The stench coming from the Republican camp is almost as bad as the smell from our capital building. I cling to the NOTION that somehow at the very least we will get rid of a DEVIATE and replace him with a LESSER DEVIATE, who might at least possess the ability to manage the fiscal obligations of the Federal government honestly. We shall SEE!

  3. ………….but there is absolutely NO GUARANTEE whatsoever that the course of America will be corrected. That is what bothers me the MOST!

    all the kings horses, and all the kings men, will bring all of obama’s scndals to a end, If I had a son, he would look like jesse jr

  5. Bessie………….
    You can ARREST criminals, you can prosecute criminals, and you can imprison criminals,but it is those who we do NOT YET know about that scares me. These criminals often pretend to be HONEST,and FORTHRIGHT people who ask us to VOTE FOR THEM, because they are going to FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA………..WHOA…..where did I hear this before? Seems like somebody who was running for POTUS asked everybody to help him FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA,and voila, a HELL OF A LOT OF AMERICANS fell for it, and as a result we are now in the FIGHT OF OUR LIVES to SAVE AMERICA!

  6. The big problem for Arizona law enforcement is that Wash. is preventing them from even complying with what SCOTUS just ordered since the Feds are removing the data base from being used for verification of illegality status of those arrested for other cuase.

    A possible response could be to put the unknown legal status of those arrested for other cause and put them in tents and when the usual period of time for release or longer detainment decision by ICE is up begin to send any further housing expenses to the FEDs/ICE. Apparently the state doesn’t have permission to do anything else without hearing first what to do from ICE who is now refusing to acknowledge the communications to them from the local law enforcement. If the illegals want to complain about treatment let them know that it is on the backs of the Feds who refuse to give the necessary info re: their legal status and/or what to do with them….complain to them. IF finally the Feds feel forced to order the hordes of illegals to be released into the local community make sure you have the written orders for doing such and when said released criminals do anything against the local community make certain that media covers the mess caused by Washington against their own American citizens while protecting illegals. We will then have a similar situation as gun walking since the number of illegals could be permitted to walk by the Feds and when an American citizen is harmed or killed call another Congressional hearing and provide the communications/emails from the Feds who would not cooperate with the Supreme Court’s order for the legal arrests and make them responsible for the harm done.

  7. …… distasteful as it seems Romney may be our ONLY chance to save our country from being returned to the DARK AGES, by a PRACTICING DEVIATE MORON and his SLIMEY FRIENDS. I think that in order to at least get rid of the horrible odor from the WH,we will have to take some real chances, because we do NOT HAVE any other PRACTICAL OPTION, other than the teaching of the Declaration of Independence. If we fail in 135 days to remove the DISEASE from the WH we then have NO OTHER OPTION, except LET America become a THIRD WORLD Socialist country, which somehow doesn’t seem like the American DREAM.

  8. Observer…………..
    What really happened is that Arizona law enforcement,will be SHOVELLING FECES AGAINST THE TIDE when they try to enforce any state immigration laws. There is only one option left for Arizona……..secession from the Union, which I believe about 20 or more other states would quickly follow, which collectively could result in another Civil War. Remember…..State’s rights!


  10. Anyone catch Condi Rice on the Greta show last night? Well, she “felt” that the just elected Mus. Brotherhood guy, Mursi, in Egypt just might be better than the military because now he must actually govern. Um…that’s the problem. Apparently she’s been sleeping during the Iranian uprising and that kind of “governing” such people use to control the people.

    Common sense judgement is missing from most at the top these days because they are simply too removed, protected from what the “little” people experience due to their decisions or lack thereof.

  11. I have to hold Brewer and McCain esp. responsible for this now blatant abuse of power and obstruction of justice directed at them and their state. They both had and have the opportunity to examine the evidence that could get this creep and his not so merry band of thugs removed. Instead they held back….and McCain made a grandiose statement out of no substance that Obama WOULD be on the ballot. If they have the goods (or the opportunity to see them and cooperate with the heroes of their state) and do nothing then they should just shut up and let those who can actually accomplish something get it done or at least not obstruct getting the info out to the public or apologizing for the truth because they might be called names and they can’t take the left’s attacks.

    McCain was also on Greta and stayed sitting on his usual fence whining all about how Obama had the chance to do something on immigration with him and did nothing. That’s the extent to his governing ability…always whining about what didn’t get done after he’s offered himself up to be used by the regime and defending their rights to continue killing us.

  12. ….the US govt is arming individuals, Mexican drug cartels, zetas and jihadists, to name a few, with weapons (I am told) that can take down a helicopter. Then they refuse to stop them from entering this country illegally or detain those that are already illegally here.

    They impose irrational EPA restrictions preventing us from developing our own natural resouces of energy.

    They are also defunding our Defense, perpetuating the destruction of our economy and devaluing the world’s reserve currency….the U.S. dollar.

    Now if they can take away our gun rights..which is the “dream act” of the Left, VOILLA….MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

    It matters not the ulterior motive behind any of these objectives. Be it liberals, socialists, communists, environmentalists, 99%ers, radical islamists…they all share the same goal..and that is to take down this country.

    God Bless Sheriff Joe, he may go down in history as the man who saved the U.S.A.

    He has been a principled law enforcer from the beginning and now that evidence is mounting on what exactly is going on, I suspect they will come after him fast and furiously…Please everyone keep him in your prayers. I fear the line will now be drawn in Arizona.

  14. Hillary tied to new Muslim Brotherhood president
    Radical links run through secretary of state’s chief of staff

    Saleha Mahmood Abedin, the mother of Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, reportedly served in the women’s division of the Muslim Brotherhood alongside the wife of Egypt’s new president, the Brotherhood’s Mohammed Mursi.

    WND previously exposed Abedin represented a Muslim charity known to have spawned terror groups, including one declared by the U.S. government to be an official al-Qaida front.

    WND also reported Clinton spoke at Abedin’s Saudi women’s college, where she was introduced by Abedin alongside the Islamic activist’s daughter, Huma, who serves as Clinton’s chief of staff. At the speech, Clinton praised Saleha’s “pioneering work.”

    Saleha Abedin is also the mother-in-law of disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y.

    Now, author Walid Shoebat is reporting that while she acted as one of 63 leaders of the Muslim Sisterhood, the de facto female version of the Muslim Brotherhood, Saleha Abedin served alongside Najla Ali Mahmoud, the wife of Mursi. Both were members of the Sisterhood’s Guidance Bureau, found Shoebat.

    I agree 200% with you, observer. You can’t play with fire and not be burned, as the old adage goes. I have got to draft letters to them (snail mail) re. this matter. McCain’s whining is almost more than I can stomach.
    In fact, I have been avoiding him when possible. AZ has had enough of him, but he is in for another four years plus.

    This morning I thought that if Congress won’t step up to the plate and do something about this abuse of power, we should start either recall or impeachment proceedings (whatever the states’ laws provide for) against our representatives who have failed. Could we get enough voters on board? I don’t know.
    Just a serious threat might be enough to do the trick.

    King Obama Seeks Revenge as Unanimous Court Upholds Part of Immigration Law

    It’s the fourth provision at the heart of the law that really had the administration worried, and that’s the provision that the court upheld unanimously.
    Historically, a unanimous Supreme Court decision on anything seals the deal. Challengers need not bother. Adios. Hasta la vista, baby.
    But the justices didn’t realize they were dealing with King Obama. Instead of accepting the decision of the court with good grace and committing himself to upholding the ruling as is the president’s duty, Obama immediately set about finding ways to get around it.

  17. New law makes it illegal to protest in Obama’s presence

    This means that, wherever Obama is, you do not have a right to ask
    him anything you want to. His secret service can have you arrested,
    fined, and imprisoned for more than a YEAR if you ask him something
    he doesn’t like. Sound like he’s more like Hitler than Lincoln to


    It’s probably one of the scariest things this guy has done yet.

    Are you aware of this new law, signed by Obama in early March, 2012?

    May the Lord have mercy on us!!!!

  20. i hope sherrif joe has his press conference soon…AND hope he doesn’t give a lot of advanced notice before he has it. Just spring it on them i hope

  21. And you know they’re as honest as the day is long….and….will pay special attention to dead people voting, “fixed” voting machines paid for by Soros, and thugs standing with billy clubs to “welcome” folks to the voting places!!:

    Obama prepping thousands of lawyers for election

    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — President Barack Obama’s campaign has recruited a legion of lawyers to be on standby for this year’s election as legal disputes surrounding the voting process escalate.

    Thousands of attorneys and support staffers have agreed to aid in the effort, providing a mass of legal support that appears to be unrivaled by Republicans or precedent. Obama’s campaign says it is particularly concerned about the implementation of new voter ID laws across the country, the possibility of anti-fraud activists challenging legitimate voters and the handling of voter registrations in the most competitive states.

  22. citizenwells

    Thanks Philo.
    Robert Bauer is heading up the effort.
    You remember Bauer.
    He helped Obama keep his records hidden before Jan 2009 & was a general counsel atty after that.

    Remember rule #24 of “The Democrat Party’s Manifesto”

    24 – Trade Unions and Trial Lawyers are our strength and power.

  24. Here’s a look from the perspective of our Northern Border

  25. CW: Robert Bauer also accompanied then President Elect Obama for his 2 hour long interview with 4 federal agents, just after the 2008 election…It was Bauer who turned over thier “internal investigative report” drawn up by Greg Craig, the feds gave him back the report telling him to hang onto it until after the investigation was complete….Bauer gave the report to them anyway!!! This report is the same report that was turned over to the press/public, where there is NO MENTION of Obama phoning Tom Balanoff asking him to act as an emissary between the two political camps….Balanoff testified for the prosecution in BOTH trials of Rod Blagojevich contradicting Obamas report…Blagojevich tried to get the 302’s (minutes to the meeting) 5 times and 5 times was denied for different reasons, none that made any sense…This is why I think Blagojevich is going to get a pardon…

    ‘I’m Done’ Denying Liberal Bias In The Media”

    Joe Newby
    June 25, 2012

    “On Saturday, Newsbusters’ Tim Graham reported that blogger and Catholic deacon Greg Kandra, who last worked at NBC for Katie Couric, says he’s no longer defending the so-called mainstream media from charges of liberal bias.

    “I’m tired,” Kandra wrote. “Truly. I’ve grown weary of trying to defend the indefensible and explain the inexplicable. For years, people have stomped their feet and pounded their fists and snorted ‘Liberal media bias!’ and I’ve always tut-tutted and shooshed them and said, ‘No, no. Calm down.

    They meant well. It was just a misunderstanding. A mistake. These things happen.’ I spent over 25 years working in the oft-reviled Mainstream Media and I saw up close and personal how the sausage was made. I knew the people who wielded the knives and wore the aprons, and could vouch (most of the time, anyway) for their good intentions,” he added.

    But after NBC’s Andrea Mitchell was caught using edited video to make Mitt Romney look out of touch, Kandra decided he was finished defending what we call the “Democrat-media complex.”

    “Forget it. I’m done,” he wrote, adding:

    “You deserve what they’re saying about you. It’s earned. You have worked long and hard to merit the suspicion, acrimony, mistrust and revulsion that the media-buying public increasingly heaps upon you. You have successfully eroded any confidence, dispelled any trust, and driven your audience into the arms of the Internet and the blogosphere, where biases are affirmed and like-minded people can tell each other what they hold to be true […]. You have done a superlative job of diminishing what was once a great profession and undermining one of the vital underpinnings of democracy, a free press.”

    He concluded by asking NBC: “What the h**l is wrong with you guys?”

    Newt who???

  29. Mr. Wells, I believe I should have placed this vision of loveliness here:

    “The congressman had his first private meeting with the governor in years at Blagojevich’s Thompson Center office on Dec. 8, 2008. Leaving the late-afternoon meeting, Jackson Jr. said he had merely sought to impress Blagojevich with a matter-of-fact presentation of his accomplishments. Blagojevich was arrested the next morning.”

  30. Rebel Mope

    They say this was updated, but I don’t see what was changed… I knew I should have saved it to a file.

  31. Rebel Mope

    Ah yes, Mr. Wells, then there is this…

    “Jeff Cramer, who worked with Fitzgerald both in New York and in Chicago before leaving the office to head up the Chicago office of the Kroll investigative firm, said Fitzgerald was known for leading a non-partisan office, making decisions without politics playing a role.

    “The office pursued appropriate prosecutions without regard to politics, animosity, or bias,” Cramer said. “For 11 years, Pat led an ethical and successful U.S. Attorney’s Office. He leaves with the respect of everyone who worked under him.”

    What a load of crap. As ‘special prosecutor’ he knew who leaked Valerie Plame to the press before he and Tim Russert trapped Scooter in the “Lie” of “I don’t know”. The guy is a hack.

  32. “On Tuesday, Rick Bryant, Jackson’s chief of staff, told NBC Chicago that the office actually wanted to announce his leave, which began June 10, last week. But the announcement was delayed until Monday, he said, because of the indictment of Raghu Nayak, Jackson’s longtime friend who faces fraud and tax charges.

    “We were prepared to make a statement last week when the news broke that Nayak was arrested,” Bryant said. “We postponed that announcement because this has nothing to do with the Nayak arrest. There’s no connection between the two.”
    Nah. Nothing to see here, now move along…
