Patrick Fitzgerald University of Chicago Law School, National security law program course, Obama Senior Lecturer, Corruption comes full circle

“Why wasn’t Rod Blagojevich, Governor of IL, prosecuted before Tony Rezko, a businessman?”…Citizen Wells

“Why did Colin Powell allow Patrick Fitzgerald to be pulled away from the Blagojevich prosecution?”…Citizen Wells

“Why wasn’t Rod Blagojevich, the Governor of Illinois, wiretapped at least by 2005 when it was known in 2003 that there was widespread corruption in his administration?”…Citizen Wells

Get involved in Chicago and Illinois corruption and apparently you are a shoe in for a job at the University of Chicago Law School.

From The National Law Journal March 6, 2013.

“University of Chicago lands Fitzgerald for teaching job”

“Patrick Fitzgerald, the high-profile former U.S. attorney, is heading
to the University of Chicago Law School.

He has been named the inaugural Feirson Distinguished Lecturer at the
school and will teach one course per year, beginning with a national
security law program this spring.

“Pat Fitzgerald is one of the most respected and skilled attorneys of
his generation,” dean Michael Schill said. “No one has done more to
bring honor to the legal profession—especially in Chicago—than Pat.
His unimpeachable ethics, his extraordinary brilliance and his
astounding work ethic make him one of the finest public servants this
country has ever known.”

Fitzgerald joined Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom as a partner in
October following a decade as the U.S. attorney for the Northern
District of Illinois. In that post, he oversaw the successful
corruption prosecutions of former Illinois governors Rod Blagojevich
and George Ryan. As a special prosecutor in the Valerie Plame leak
case, he secured the conviction of Lewis “Scooter” Libby, an aide to
former Vice President Dick Cheney, on counts including obstruction of
justice and perjury.”

Patrick Fitzgerald is either clueless, biased and/or corrupt.

Fitzgerald aggressively prosecuted Republican Governor of Illinois George Ryan and then aggressively attacked Scooter Libby and Karl Rove, unjustly, and with the knowledge by Colin Powell and others that they were innocent of the leak in the Valerie Plame case.

All the while Fitzgerald delayed the prosecution of Rod Blagojevich until after the 2008 election.

Barack Obama was a Senior Lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School.

The new Citizen Wells question that begs an answer is:

“Why wasn’t Rod Blagojevich, the Governor of Illinois, wiretapped at least by 2005 when it was known in 2003 that there was widespread corruption in his administration?”

  1. “His unimpeachalble ethics”…really??? I can think of a few right off the top of my head…

  2. What ever happened to the legal standard of, appearance of impropriety?

    Fitzgerald has failed the standard, along with our entire government.

  3. Whistleblower

    Why no Grand Jury? Chicago Tribune reporter John Chase involved in a crime. AGAIN!

    John McCain: Hero Or Whore?

    I was raised to honor the sacrifices of veterans, especially combat ones. For that reason, US Senator John McCain has gotten a break from me (and even my vote in 2008.) But, I’m not questioning his Vietnam service record. My current inquiry has a much more recent vintage. While US Senator Rand Paul…

  5. “Washington Examiner’s Byron York Declares Sen. Ted Cruz Eligible To Be President”

    “Byron York pushing leftist views. FNC declares Cruz not eligible…”


    “Any talk about Cruz follows years of discussion about birthplace and presidential eligibility involving President Obama, Sen. John McCain, and Sen. Marco Rubio. The bottom line in the case of Cruz, who was born in Canada in 1970, is that his father was an immigrant from Cuba and not a U.S. citizen at the time of young Cruz’s birth, but his mother was born and raised in the United States. The law in effect then, and now, made Ted Cruz a U.S. citizen at birth. Although the drafters of the Constitution did not define what they meant when they required an American president to be a “natural born citizen,” it is generally thought that “citizen by birth” is the best modern-day equivalent. On that basis, Cruz appears entirely eligible — if he ever chooses to pursue the White House.

    Last year, I wrote about citizenship law, focusing on the case of Rubio, who was born in the United States and about whom there is no question of presidential eligibility. Some of that article also applies to Cruz: […]”

    It would seem to me that if you want to know how to neutralise the drones just ask the IRANIANS. They allegedly took over control of one and even landed it. I would say to get in contact with an electronics engineer,and devise ways of neutralising the guidance RADIO FREQUENCIES. Screw up the guidance, and you screw up the device.

    In Nostradamus’ quatrains, the 3rd Antichrist he designates as MABUS. How about this:
    oba-MA, B-arack h-US-sein.
    The quatrain says “MABUS will soon die,” and speaks of catasrophe, to include famine and thirst “when the comet passes.”

    I saw this on a previous thread and just wanted to remind you all that our Sec of the Navy is a man named Mabus.

    Raymond Edwin “Ray” Mabus, Jr. (born October 11, 1948) is the 75th United States Secretary of the Navy. Mabus served as the 59th Governor of the U.S. state of Mississippi from 1988 to 1992 and as United States Ambassador to Saudi Arabia from 1994 to 1996.

  9. “AT: The Most Open Administration In History: Obama’s Marxist Aversion To Capitalism”

    “Consider that we have a president whose word simply cannot be trusted. Alan Caruba calls him a “Wannabe Dictator” and Obama’s own words prove the case. He bypasses Congress at every turn and his executive orders “grant [him] total power over every aspect of life in America in the event of an emergency or attack.” Additionally Obama has learned well the import of Hitler’s comment that “all propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.””


    Comments at ORYR:

    FALCON: “Alan Caruba calls him a “Wannabe Dictator” and Obama’s own words prove the case.

    McConnell, McCain, Graham, Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy are determined to let him do whatever he wants. They deserves as much blame as anyone else.”

    SirWilhelm: “One of the biggest differences between Obama, and Hitler. and one which almost everyone can not believe about Obama, is that Hitler believed Germany could conquer the world for him, one of his biggest goals. Obama does not want America to conquer the world. He wants the world to conquer Ameriica. Obama is the enemy of America in the best position to help the world fulfill that goal. Unbelievable? For most, yes. Which is the reason he remains so stealthy about it As long as most Americans don’t realize what his true goal is, the better chance he has of reaching it. Which is one reason his ineligiblity is so important. If people realized he is not an American, it would be easier for them to believe he is trying to destroy America. Obama says he is not a dictator. He’s not, because he is not like any other dictator. His goal is unique, like no other any dictator ever had.”

  10. Now listen to what I am telling you. This is a continuing operation that involves many of the same people on both sides of the aisle in Washington. This is one of the reasons why no one wants to talk about Obama’s past. He is the product of a continuing intelligence operation, put in power to oversee the dismantling of the U.S., with the economy being the lynchpin of our destruction. Obama, Jarrett, and the Clintons are in constant contact with all high level operatives inside the DHS. Perhaps not directly in all cases but through their contacts. They are working together to see to it that the U.S. economy is brought down, robbing the people of their wealth and then blaming partisan politics for the crash. MUST READ AMERICA…BE VERY SCARED!…

    I’m a combat vet from Vietnam and I say John McCain is a WHORE…..

  12. Received in an e-mail this morning. No wonder this guy’s the CEO:
    Dear Employees:

    As CEO of this organization I have resigned myself to the fact that Barack Obama is our President and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases our prices would have to increase 10%. Since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty of our employees instead. This has been bothering me since I believe we are family here, and I didn’t know how to choose those who would have to go. So, I walked through our parking lot and found sixty ‘Obama’ bumper stickers on our employees’ vehicles. I’ve decided that these folks will be the ones laid off. I can’t think of a fairer way to approach this issue; they voted for change, so I’m giving it to them. I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

    Fair is fair, OldSailor! Realistic thinking has gone the way of the Edsel!

    I’d love to have that guy as my boss; it sure beats what I have now 🙂

  19. Air Force Brat!

    RMinNC — well, at least one of my senators (Inhofe) appears to be trying to represent his constituents by voting “Nay”. I’m proud of him.

    I’m so disappointed in Coburn, though. For so long, he seemed to be FOR We The People. Many of his recent actions, though, have convinced me that he’s just as much of a go-along-to-get-along as any of ’em. I think that for me, it began when he said he regarded Nancy Pelosi as “a nice lady” when Obamacare was being hotly debated.

    While I’m deeply disappointed in Coburn, I don’t think he’s being blackmailed, threatened, or any of that. People have got to stop automatically assuming that ANYONE who votes in an asinine way at ANY given time is doing so from fear, Chicago thug politics, etc. Occam’s Razor applies — sometimes Congress (both chambers) are just a bunch of below-the-waist orifices.

  20. Some (124) gun manufacturers are getting with the program. Time for ammo manufacturers to announce they will not sell ammunition to the States and Federal government entities. Make them send armed forces to confiscate the ammo. I would also like to see suppliers of casing metal and explosives to announce they will not sell to manufacturers who sell to States and Federal governments who do not honor article two.

    Sorry I have not been around in months folks.

    I had major reconstructive surgery for a severe case of “posterior tibial tendon dysfunction” which could not be repaired. After surgery I was completely disabled for several weeks and taking heavy duty pain meds…then I had to undergo changing casts several times to reposition the foot so sitting at my desk was still uncomfortable. The casts are off now and I can walk some but have to go for physical therapy for the next 3 months.

  22. citizenwells

    Take care.

  23. Philo Publius………………….
    Glad to hear from you,and that things are going the right direction for you. You gotta get your foot OK so that you can be among the rest of us who will ALL simultaneously put a footprint on Soetoro’s REAR END.

  24. Wouldn’t it be a real blast if the FED had to REOPEN the old Pica tinny Arsenal, to make their own ammo. HAR DE HAR. Maybe the ammo manufacturers will refuse to produce the orders from the HDS. Perhaps they can find a willing MUSLIM supplier.

  25. Philo……
    Do you have any neuropathy in the lower partof your leg near the ankle. This is a tingling, sort of numbness which is halmarked by a cold area. Diabetes,and lower spinal problems can be a major source of the tibial disfunction…….or at least complicate it.

  28. “Ridiculous: Breitbart News Wrongly Declares Canadian-Born Ted Cruz Eligible To Be President”
    by Ken Klukowski @ Breitbart

    At Breitbart link:

    “Cruz was born in Canada, but his mother was a lifelong American, born in Delaware. (His father was a political refugee from Cuba.) So under federal law, Cruz was born an American citizen by virtue of his mother.”
    “Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where his parents, Eleanor Darragh and Rafael Cruz, were working in the petroleum business. His father was a Cuban immigrant during the Cuban Revolution to the United States. His mother, an American, was reared in Delaware, in a family of Irish and Italian descent.”

    GORDO, NBC has been redefined as US citizen by the left and many on the right. It most likely will remain that way until SCOTUS stops avoiding the issue.

  30. CW…………
    I don’t know if you are following the events relating to NK or not, but the BANTY ROOSTERS have (allegedly) formally renounced the Armistice which was signed in 1953. The IMMATURE little SNOTNOSE who has gained control of North Korea, has NO LIFE’S experience or military experience. In short he is little more than a NITWIT. He in all probability is being controlled by the senior military sector which in the US is called the joint chiefs. Wonder if any of the old school are left in our upper echelon. They BETTER know exactly what needs to happen,because if they don’t South Korea could become another South Vietnam…… SECONDS! The maniacs from the North will have to be killed,they have grown up believing that UP is DOWN and will follow the orders of the Chief Banty ROOSTER. That is when they will receive their EDUCATION from the South. Goose stepping,and lots of feathers doesn’t do it. They have yet to discover that. YA VEE IS DER SUPERMEN! LOOK AT HOW MANY OF THE SUPERMEN SURRENDERED…..BY THE REGIMENT,AND DIVISION,when the US forces reached the Rhine. YA VEE ISS DER MASTER RACE! HAR DE HAR. LOOK WHERE THEY ALL ENDED UP,……….DANGLING FROM THE GALLOWS at NUERENBURG.

    Wasn’t the NBC issue pretty well determined long ago by the SCOTUS in Minor vs Happersett. I am wondering what part of PLAIN ENGLISH the LOONEY LEFT does NOT UNDERSTAND.

    Sometimes we think we are the only one who is going through something rough in our lives until we hear others rough times. God Bless You… Take care of yourself and do not rush the healing period.

    Thank you for the info and I am going to have my hubby go to Disqus. I am computer DUMB! hahaha I think I it is time for me to upgrade so I can keep up on the internet. I am still stuck on Internet Exployer 7 😦 I just do not like my front page changing. 😦

  34. Publius,
    So sorry to hear about your ordeal! Do take the therapy seriously, because it can do wonders to rehabilitate. That must have been quite a surgery. I know from personal experience that casts, although necessary, can be very uncomfortable at times. Take care!
