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

The Blagojevich arrest was delayed until after the 2008 election.

The Blagojevich appeal has been delayed until after the 2012 election by the Obama Justice Department.

From Chicago CBS Local November 10, 2012.

“Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich has headed from the kitchen to the library at the federal prison in suburban Denver, as he continues his 14-year sentence for corruption charges.

WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports Blagojevich’s former defense attorney Sam Adam Jr. said the ex-governor began his prison sentence in March like any other inmate; washing dishes, pots, and pans.

But Adam said Blagojevich found that job painfully boring, and he’s looking for a change.

“He’s either in the library, or just about to get in the library,” Adam said.

Even before the library gig, Blagojevich was busy reading to relieve the boredom, thanks to books sent to him by Adam’s father and fellow defense attorney, Sam Adam Sr.

“He and my father now are studying Ulysses S. Grant. He sends presidential books every month, and now they’re up to Grant,” Adam Jr. said.

He said the experience has been good for Blagojevich and his father.

“I told you, Blago is the son my father never had. He’s the intellectual,” Adam said.

He said he remains confident Blagojevich will win his appeal, which is making its way through the federal court system. Adam said Blagojevich’s morale is holding up, because he’s also confident about the appeal.

“My understanding is all the transcripts have been at least done, and they’re starting the process of writing that appeal,” Adam said.

He asserted Blagojevich’s 14-year sentence won’t be the final word in the case.

“I’ll predict it,” Adam said. “The very question of did you get a right to present your defense has been very good for the defendant – not very good on other things – very good for the defendant. Did you get a right to present your defense? And he clearly did not, and I think that’s a very good issue.”

Adam left the Blagojevich defense team after the first trial ended in a hung jury on all but one count, and is not directly involved in the appeal.”

The delay in the prosecution and appeal of Rod Blagojevich.

A perfect Chicago Crime?

From Citizen Wells October 26, 2012.

“The transcripts needed for the Rod Blagojevich appeal, overdue by almost a year, are still not ready and the appeals court judge is faulting Blagojevich attorney Lauren Kaeseberg, despite the fact that the appeals court has responsibility in this matter.

From Fox News Philly October 23, 2012.

“Blago attorney questioned about continued delay in appeal process”

“FOX Chicago News has learned that Rod Blagojevich’s appeal is still having trouble getting off the ground, because of delays in producing transcripts from his two trials.

For the second time in the last four months, Lauren Kaeseberg, one of the attorney’s handling Rod Blagojevich’s appeal, has been threatened with disciplinary action because she still hasn’t provided a complete copy of the Blagojevichtrial transcripts to the appellate court.

The appellate court won’t set a briefing schedule to get the appeal moving until the transcripts are available.

As FOX Chicago reported exclusively in August, the court reporter responsible for producing the 16,000 pages of transcripts took a leave of absence for five and a half months after Blagojevich was convicted. So, the appellate court agreed to wait until September 28th for the transcripts.

But, now in October, they’re still not completed. On Monday, the court issued an order, warning Kaeseberg again that she could face monetary or disciplinary sanctions. She responded Tuesday with an explanation, saying transcripts are still missing because they were under seal, or were handled by a different court reporter and she hopes to have them soon.

Kaeseberg told the appellate court that Blagojevich is aware of the delay. Attorneys who talk with him say he never fails to ask about the progress of his appeal.”

Delays in the appeal clearly help Obama.

From Citizen Wells August 7, 2012.

“DATE: 11/12/2008
TIME: 12:36 P.M.
ACTIVITY: Rod Blagojevich home line incoming call.
BLAGOJEVICH: Rod Blagojevich
HARRIS: John Harris

BLAGOJEVICH I mean think about that. I mean they, they want me here in Illinois. That’s a faraway Illinois problem from my old life.

HARRIS Mm-hmm.

BLAGOJEVICH The governor’s got that problem with Rezko, boom. But if I’m in the Senate it’s not just mine anymore, it’s his too. Isn’t it? If the Rezko thing got worse?

HARRIS Mm-hmm, Mm-hmm. Well we’ve always thought that.

BLAGOJEVICH And, and from a legal stand point on the substance of, you know, did, did you do something wrong or didn’t do something wrong it doesn’t change that. But in terms of the, the people who are trying to chase all that down and does it change any dynamic if you’re there verses being left back here.


BLAGOJEVICH But don’t forget uh, Obama’s gonna have uh, you know, do something about that. And is Obama more or less likely to wanna contain that if I’m out there with him. I mean I’ve got this theory that even Knapp says could be possible and Balanoff. You know, Axelrod and Obama’s people, you know, clearly turned, you know, got the Chicago media to make Rezko all about me. And hardly about…

HARRIS Yeah, in other words, they focus their,they focus their attention on you. They couldn’t make it go away so the bes-, next best strategy is deflect it.


HARRIS This is somewhere where it, it’ll satisfy the, the hunger of the beast, being the media.

BLAGOJEVICH Right, right.

HARRIS Yeah, it makes sense. It’s not a stretch. If I’m, if I’m his message advisor, media advisor or whatever, operative, yeah I’m gonna try to feed the beast by giving ‘em something else to eat on.

BLAGOJEVICH So, if I wanna be safe from Rezko, am I a little bit safer over there with him.”

The court reporter, trial judge James Zagel and the appeals court all have a responsibility to produce transcripts needed for an appeal in a timely manner.

From Citizen Wells August 25, 2012.

“Vol 6: Court Reporting

Ҥ 130.20.20 District Court
Each district court must develop a Court Reporting Management Plan.”

“(g) Providing for avoidance of backlogs of transcripts and assuring prompt
delivery of high quality transcripts, particularly for cases on appeal to the
court of appeals; “
Ҥ 440.60 Judge Appointed (Involuntary) Use of Substitute Reporter

§ 440.60.10 Introduction

A district judge or the chief judge of a circuit may appoint a substitute reporter in the event a court reporter is unable to complete transcripts in a timely fashion.”

“(1) Appeals to a Circuit from a District Court
Transcripts for appealed cases should be delivered within 30 days from the date ordered or from the date satisfactory arrangements for payment have been made.”

Ҥ 540 Transcripts for Cases on Appeal

§ 540.10 Introduction

Cases appealed to the United States courts of appeals require the timely transmission of the record from the lower court. A transcript of the proceedings normally is a required part of the record to be transmitted to the court of appeals.”

Ҥ 540.20.20 Rule 11, Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure (Forwarding the Record)
The statute states:”
If the transcript cannot be completed within 30 days of the reporters receipt of the order, the reporter may request the circuit clerk to grant additional time to complete it. The clerk must note on the docket the action taken and notify the parties.”
If the reporter fails to file the transcript on time, the circuit clerk must notify the district judge and do whatever else the court of appeals directs.”

Who engineered these delays and who is responsible?

What were Obama and Blagojevich discussing in 2008?

“Just because it’s a conspiracy theory doesn’t mean it is not true.”

It is obvious to any rational person paying attention that this delay was orchestrated by the Obama controlled US Justice Department to keep Obama corruption ties out of the election cycle news.”

    Update On Occidental College Subpoena Seeking
    All Records Related To Barack Obama And Barry Soetoro

    As reported here Orly Taitz posted at her blog a subpoena seeking to compel Occidental College to release all records related to Barack Hussein Obama and Barry Soetoro. The subpoena is purportedly from Montgomery Sibley’s electoral college challenge.

    We reached out to Mr. Sibley for comment on the validity of the subpoena and his response is as follows:

    “No it is not valid. Orly has run off prematurely. I did consult her about domesticating my DC Subpoena in California, but she only received a draft subpoena, not the one I have issued. So please disregard her posting.
    In truth, I have issued subpoenas to Columbia, Occidental, Harvard Law, Social Security Administration, Selective Service Administration and the National Archives. Orly has nothing to do with those subpoenas. Service is pending and I will update everyone once I know whether service was successful.” – Montgomery Sibley

    Norquist: Obama ‘Hostile and ‘Insulting’ to GOP on Debt Deal

    Low-tax crusader and Republican strategist Grover Norquist tells Newsmax that House Speaker John Boehner’s plan to raise $800 billion in new revenue could be a negotiating tactic designed to show “how out of line” President Obama is.

    He also says some Republicans have the “fantasy” that Obama has become more moderate on taxes and spending since his re-election.

    And he asserts that Republicans can hold hostage the increase in the debt ceiling that Obama needs if he remains “hostile” and “insulting” to Republicans in his negotiations.

  5. Um: 49% of Republicans Think the 2012 Election Was Stolen?

    Yes, we lost. But I don’t think it’s necessarily fair to say that ACORN stole the election, do you?
    PPP’s first post election national poll finds that Republicans are taking the results pretty hard…and also declining in numbers. 49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn’t exist anymore.
    Some GOP voters are so unhappy with the outcome that they no longer care to be a part of the United States. 25% of Republicans say they would like their state to secede from the union compared to 56% who want to stay and 19% who aren’t sure.


  6. The ultimate “pay to play” was Patrick Fitzgerald getting the primo job with Greg Craig, it is a story that would do Alfred Hitchcock proud…the guy who conducts the “internal investigation” into communications between the two polictical camps about the selling of the Senate seat. Then goes to the interview with Obama and his lawyer Bauer handing over the report to 4 federal agents (the agents gave them back the report telling them to hang onto it until after the investigation was complete…Greg gave it to them anyway!)….Poor Rod tried over 5 times to get the 302’s to this meeting with lame inconsistant excuses from Judge Zagel, stone walling his request…and everyone in the country thinks Patrick Fitzgerald is Elliot Ness??? Pathetic!

  10. WB; it goes without saying what happened to Mrs. Koschman is terribly painfull, I cannot imagine losing a child…but don’t you think what the Sun Times is doing is just adding to her suffering? She lost her son in 2004 in a tragic, stupid, druken brawl and from what I have read had no milicious intent but it was the cover up that added insult to her injuries. And the well respected SunTime’s reporters who didn’t pick up the story for how many years? IF they had picked up this story when it happened the very predictable cover-up would have been near impossible. Instead they sat and waited…for what??? a changing of the guards…hmm….

    And WB: do you know why you cannot post comments at IP2P?

  11. Whistleblower

    What the Sun Times is doing is dispicabble and 100% pure politics.
    As for ILP2P, my guess as to why there is no comment board would be that
    there is probably disadvantages ( legally) and drawbacks to having one.
    And advantages in not having one.

  12. Obama has done way worse crimes than Blago, yet Blago gets arrested and BO goes totally free. BO should be going to prison for usurping the presidency, rigged elections, fraud, treason, cover up for terrorism and murder and many other crimes he has committed and gotten away with. Congress has no guts to impeach that usurper.
