Obama Chicago corruption ties don’t die, Iraqi billionaire Nahdmi Auchi tied to Obama and Rezko owns lot Chicago wants to develop, Mahajan FDIC lawsuit still alive, Obama Rezko lot transaction

“GE obtained a court judgment against Rezko in November 2004 for the $3.5 million it said was outstanding on its loans, but the company put collection efforts on hold during the first half of 2005 as it negotiated with Rezko, court records show.”…San Francisco Chronicle March 3, 2008

“Why did the Rezkos enter into an agreement to purchase the lot next to the Obama house and pay the asking price of $ 625,000 at a time when they were broke and heavily in debt?”…Citizen Wells

“Why did Mutual Bank fire whistleblower Kenneth J Connor after he
challenged the appraisal on the land purchased by Rita Rezko, just
prior to the land sale to Obama?”…Citizen Wells



Do not believe the lies that you have been told about the Obama Rezko lot transaction.

Tony Rezko and his wife, with the help of Iraqi billionaire Nahdmi Auchi, with the help of Mutual Bank president Amrish Mahajan, made the lot transaction work for the Obama’s.

From the Chicago Tribune July 10, 2013.

“City aims to jump-start Near South Side development
Land controlled by billionaire once linked to convicted influence peddler Tony Rezko”

“The city is trying to kick-start development of vacant 62-acre parcel near downtown controlled by a controversial Iraqi billionaire once linked to convicted Democratic influence peddler Antoin “Tony” Rezko.

A city development panel on Tuesday recommended giving Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration authority to buy the parcel just west of Dearborn Park on the Near South Side. If the City Council signs off, officials would have the authority to go to court to force a sale. That would take place if Luxembourg-based General Mediterranean Holding SA, which controls the Riverside District LLC that owns the site, was reluctant to sell to a developer, city officials said.

General Mediterranean is led by Nahdmi Auchi, an Iraqi billionaire living in London who was a onetime business partner of Rezko, city officials said. Auchi once made a $3.5 million payment to Rezko while Rezko awaited trial on the fraud charges that landed him in prison.

Auchi’s conglomerate in 2005 paid $130 million for the site, although Housing and Economic Development Assistant Commissioner Robert McKenna said an assessment needs to be done before the land’s current value can be determined. General Mediterranean acquired the site from Rezmar Corp., which was owned by Rezko and former partner Daniel Mahru.”

A tax increment financing district was formed in 1997 to help develop the site, but nothing was ever done with the property in part because of the controversy surrounding its owners.”

From Citizen Wells July 10, 2013.

“The FDIC lawsuit against Amrish Mahajan, former president of Mutual Bank, et al is scheduled for a motion hearing in the courtroom of Judge Virginia M. Kendall on July 10, 2013. Mutual Bank loaned Rita Rezko the money for the lot that was purchased by the Obama’s. It is also the bank that fired whistleblower Kenneth J. Conner after he questioned the appraisal of that lot.”

“The Obama camp, with the full cooperation of the mainstream media and US Justice Dept., has done their best to distance Obama from his numerous close corruption ties in Chicago and Illinois. The delayed and dragged out prosecution of Rod Blagojevich with his mutual ties to Tony Rezko, the failure to call Rezko as a witness and the dropping of counts against Blagojevich that are most damning for Obama, is one good example.”

“Not only was Mahajan a member of Rezko’s bundling network; his bank, the Mutual Bank of Harvey, granted Rita Rezko the $500,000 mortgage she neededin order to purchase the lot on which the Obama mansion in Chicago sits. As many of you may recall, the Obamas could not have purchased the mansion they could not afford unless transactions for the mansion and the lot closed on the same day. Obama needed to locate someone who would buy the lot, and he approached Rezko, the convicted slumlord with whom Obama toured the property before they mutually agreed to the following arrangement:”

“The Mutual Bank of Harvey, of course, for the Mutual Bank of Harvey’s President is a man who is deeply connected to the Chicago machine that backed Barack Obama. Indeed, Amrish Mahajan was one of Mayor Daley’s first political appointments in 1989, when he was named to a seat on Chicago’s Plan Commission, where he would be joined by Obama’s former boss and Rezko’s business partner Allison Davis and by Valerie Jarrett, Daley’s Chief of Staff whochaired the Commission from 1991-1995. Mahajan, in other words, worked with those who devised and profited from Daley’s failed public housing experiment in Chicago, a public housing policy Obama helped fund as state Senator and US Senator.”

Tony Rezko was deeply in Debt. His wife’s salary was $ 37,000.

Rezko received a loan of 3.5 million from Auchi on May 23, 2005.

From the UK Guardian via WikiLeaks December 18, 2008.

Norman Lamb said he was concerned about how the libel laws act as a constraint on investigative reporting and referred to the case of the British Iraqi billionaire Nadhmi Auchi.

He said: “He is a British citizen – an Iraqi exile – and he is reported to be a multibillionaire. He was convicted in France in 2003 of fraud in a trial involving the oil company Elf. Importantly, he continues to assert his innocence of the charges – there was a conviction, but he is pursuing routes of appeal against it. He was barred from entering the United States in 2005.

“My interest in the matter is in his connections to Tony Rezco, who was convicted of fraud, money laundering and bribe-related charges in Illinois, and who is currently in prison pending sentencing. We understand that sentencing has been delayed, and it has been suggested that he should talk to federal prosecutors, especially about allegations against Illinois governor [Rod] Blagojevich, which are being investigated.

“There is political interest in the US because of the connections between Rezko and President-elect Obama. I make no allegation at all relating to the latter.

“There have been reports that a company related to Mr Auchi registered a loan of $3.5m to Tony Rezko on 23 May 2005. That and other alleged connections are obviously of great interest to investigative journalists and others. More to the point, it is legitimate to investigate such a matter, given that Auchi is a prominent British citizen with political connections in this country and overseas. As I said, it is not appropriate to go into more detail, but it is alleged that Mr Auchi and his lawyers, Carter-Ruck, have been making strenuous efforts to close down public debate. Of course, it is absolutely legitimate for any citizen to demand accurate and rigorous investigation and reporting. The question is whether UK libel laws have the disproportionate effect of discouraging legitimate reporting. Many believe that they do.”

  1. The Trib and the Sun Times wonder why they are losing readers? This article is a prime example of how they deliberately leave out pertinent information that may reflect negatively on the President they helped get elected.

  2. President Obama’s Statement on Ramadan

    With the start of the sacred month of Ramadan, Michelle and I extend our best wishes to Muslim communities here in the United States and around the world.

    For the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims, Ramadan is a time for thoughtful reflection, fasting and devotion.

    It is also an opportunity for family and friends to come together and celebrate the principles that bind people of different faiths — a commitment to peace, justice, equality and compassion towards our fellow human beings. These bonds are far stronger than the differences that too often drive us apart.

    This month also reminds us that freedom, dignity and opportunity are the undeniable rights of all mankind. We reflect on these universal values at a time when many citizens across the Middle East and North Africa continue to strive for these basic rights and as millions of refugees mark Ramadan far from their homes.

    The United States stands with those who are working to build a world where all people can write their own future and practice their faith freely, without fear of violence.

    In the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that millions of Muslim Americans enrich our nation each day—serving in our government, leading scientific breakthroughs, generating jobs and caring for our neighbors in need.

    I have been honored to host an iftar dinner at the White House each of the past four years, and this year I look forward to welcoming Muslim Americans who are contributing to our country as entrepreneurs, activists and artists.

    I wish Muslims across America and around the world a month blessed with the joys of family, peace and understanding. Ramadan Kareem.
    Would you say this brother is a Muslim or a Christian? Why can’t we Christians get a “Merry Christmas” statement out of this guy?

    The video makes it appear that Soetoro is reaching to unzip the SMILING ARAB’S FRONTAL ACCESS. Given Soetoro’s certain notoriety such a move in public probably wouldn’t bother him at all. The video doesn;t show if he is wearing knee pads or not! He did remove his shoes though!

    ………I won’t say who I got the following info from,but I will say it is from a person who is old enough to be Rezko’s father. I became acquainted with him at a paper manufacturing seminar, and later we conducted some mutually beneficial business. He operated his printing business in Wheeling. In conversation he told me a little about the shenanigans of the old man Daley. Not young Daley I am talking about the OLD MAN. When it came to wheeling and dealing there was nobody on earth who could match the CROOKED PROWESS of OLD DALEY.. Not even HIS SON!. He had a lot of contact with the people like Rezko and Auchi. When I telephoned my friend in Chicago I learned that he was in very bad health, but he nonetheless offerred to bring me up to date on the MESS in Chicago.It was from him that I obtained the information relating to the ILLEGAL money being sent from Auchi to the BUNDLER at Chicago who Soetoro had hired to oversee the small contributions fund. This was a Pakistani friend from his Occidental College days. Tyhe friend received the money from a Chicago bank to whom trhe money hasd been electronically transferred from Auchi. It was then broken into $200.00 parcels,given a random name from a telephone directory and LEGALLY entered into the Small contributions fundand …….VOILA not necessary to report the contributrion. What happens when you add an exponent of 10 many times over? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. A formal complaint was put before the Federal Election Commission …guess what……nothing was done. The two lawyers who filed the complaint apparently withdrew it…….YOU GUESS WHY!


    Each year in the small town of Margarten in Holland, the people gather to honor the fallen American soldiers who gave their lives to liberate their country.

    There are 8,301 Americans buried at the Netherlands American Cemetery which is located only six miles from Maastricht. Many of the dead soldiers were members of the 101st Airborne Division, the Screaming Eagle division, that died in “Operation Market Garden”. Most people remember this war engagement from the movie of that operation. The movie was called, “A Bridge To Far”,

    Many Dutch families have adopted the grave sites of the fallen American soldiers. They have been given pictures of their adopted family member by the American families who lost their loved ones. Those photos of the fallen soldiers occupy places of honor in the Dutch families homes and the obligation to honor them are pasted on from father to son.

    The version of the original “taps” music you will hear on this video is played by a 13 year old Dutch girl named Melissa Venema. The conductor of the world famous orchestra is Andre Rieu from Holland, a citizen of the town of Maastricht.

    Many of you may never have heard taps played in its entirety . It is a beautiful haunting melody that you will not soon forget.

    The original version of Taps was called Last Post, and was written by Daniel Butterfield in 1801. It was rather lengthy and formal, as you will hear in this clip, So in 1862 it was shortened to 24 notes and re-named Taps.

    Melissa Venema is playing it on a trumpet whereby the original was played on a bugle. …..Enjoy…his is dedicated to all who have served

    Does anyone know why FOXNEWS is OFF THE AIR!

  11. oldsailor 81

    Little Melissa done a fabulous job on the original TAPS. I tend to look upon it as a hallowed call for all DEAD to rest in PEACE. The music touched me deeply, as it should for everyone, especially those who have served.

  12. RM,
    Thanks for that beautiful video of “Taps”…..It was so inspiring to see and hear a young person who has so much feeling in her soul and has such artistry to express it extremely well.

  13. I received this message via email. It has nothing to do with Obama or eligibility or Chicago or scandals, etc., but it could save a loved one’s life:



    Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue:

    During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) …she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

    They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

    Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

    It only takes a minute to read this.

    A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

    Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn!

    Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

    Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

    S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

    T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
    (i.e. Chicken Soup)

    R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

    If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

    New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue

    NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

    Take care all CW friends. And take care all you friends of CW friends.

    We can't afford to lose a single one of you!

    I agree 100%……my father died as a result of a stroke. I recognised the ymtoms immediately. His s annunciation became “SSSHHHHH”, accompanied by a severe headache, and nausea. I got him to a hospital within a half hour but after the neurologist examined him he said there was NO HOPE. He passed away the following day. He also was sufferring from athro sclerosis, which was contributory to the stroke. He had never been diagnosed as having arterial problems.

    Earlier this evening I was talking with a friend of a neighbor who was visiting. Heand his wife were from Chicago. They had sold their home in North Chicago and had purchased property in Southern Kentucky. He said that he hopes that he NEVER returns to Chicago ever again. His description of present day Chicago is “A KETTLE OF HOMOSEXUALS” compounded by murderous gangs of blacks.

    Today I read a lengthy article written by LEE IACOCCA. Here is a SELF MADE MAN who made it to the top of the heap. He is not a DUMMY. The article is on the internet. If you wish to find it simply type Lee Iacocca article into your search engine,and hit search. I read it and boy did he tell it like it NOW IS. I wish I would have thought to take note of how I got to the site where the article is. Hopefully some of you might have already read it. I will try to find it once again.

  17. oldsailor 81

    I fdound the article. It is titled “WHERE HAVE ALL THE LEADERS GONE”. It is still available on Snopes.com. Everybody needs to read it if you havn’t yet. It was written in 2007,but is even more exact today. He uses plain language in the article. NO BIG WORD WINDOW DRESSING!

  19. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    Here’s the speech –


    Remember Lee Iacocca, the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation from its death throes? He’s now 82 years old and has a new book, ‘Where Have All The Leaders Gone?’.

    Lee Iacocca Says:

    Am I the only guy in this country who’s fed up with what’s happening? Where the hell is our outrage with this so called president? We should be screaming bloody murder! We’ve got a gang of tax cheating clueless leftists trying to steer our ship of state right over a cliff, we’ve got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can’t even run a ridiculous cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of the taxpayers’ money, much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, ‘trust me the economy is getting better..’

    Better? You’ve got to be kidding. This is America , not the damned, ‘Titanic’. I’ll give you a sound bite: ‘Throw all the Democrats out along with Obama!’

    You might think I’m getting senile, that I’ve gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore.

    The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs.. While we’re fiddling in Afghanistan, Iran is completing their nuclear bombs and missiles and nobody seems to know what to do. And the liberal press is waving ‘pom-poms’ instead of asking hard questions. That’s not the promise of the ‘America’ my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I’ve had enough. How about you?

    I’ll go a step further. You can’t call yourself a patriot if you’re not outraged. This is a fight I’m ready and willing to have. The Biggest ‘C’ is Crisis! (Iacocca elaborates on nine C’s of leadership, with crisis being the first.)

    Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. It’s easy to sit there with thumb up your butt and talk theory. Or send someone else’s kids off to war when you’ve never seen a battlefield yourself. It’s another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down.

    On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history. We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes. A hell of a mess, so here’s where we stand.

    We’re immersed in a bloody war now with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving. But our soldiers are dying daily.

    We’re running the biggest deficit in the history of the world, and it’s getting worse every day!

    We’ve lost the manufacturing edge to Asia, while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs.

    Gas prices are going to skyrock again, and nobody in power has a lucid plan to open drilling to solve the problem. This country has the largest oil reserves in the WORLD, and we cannot drill for it because the politicians have been bought by the flea-hugging environmentalists.

    Our schools are in a complete disaster because of the teachers union.

    Our borders are like sieves and they want to give all illegals amnesty and free healthcare.

    The middle class is being squeezed to death every day.

    These are times that cry out for leadership.

    But when you look around, you’ve got to ask: ‘Where have all the leaders gone?’ Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense? I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point.

    Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?

    We’ve spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened.

    Everyone’s hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping the government will make it better for them. Now, that’s just crazy.. Deal with life.

    Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when ‘The Big Three’ referred to Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more important, look what Obama did about it!

    Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debit, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem. The silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry.

    I have news for the Chicago gangsters in Congress. We didn’t elect you to turn this country into a losing European Socialist state. What is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on NBC or CNN news will call them a name? Give me a break. Why don’t you guys show some spine for a change?

    Had Enough? Hey, I’m not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I’m trying to light a fire. I’m speaking out because I have hope – I believe in America . In my lifetime, I’ve had the privilege of living through some of America ‘s greatest moments. I’ve also experienced some of our worst crises: The ‘Great Depression on,’ ‘World War II,’ the ‘Korean War,’ the ‘Kennedy Assassination,’ the ‘Vietnam War,’ the 1970’s oil crisis, and the struggles of recent years since 9/11.

    Make your own contribution by sending this to everyone you know and care about. It’s our country, folks, and it’s our future. Our future is at stake!!

  20. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    Another industry leader was Jack Welch who was G.E.’s youngest and longest leader who grew G.E.’s market value to $387 Billion dollars, making it the world’s most valuable company THEN. Immelt (an Obama buddy) has practically ruined the company.

    Lee Iacocca says “We have lost the manufacturing edge to Asia. Does anybody KNOW THE REASONS why? I do. First and foremost is EMPLOYEES. It doesn’t take a Phd to understand that you cannot sell a product for less than it costs to produce, without eventually bankrupting yourself. No margin…NO PROFIT.

  22. oldsailor 81

    Quite accurate. General Electric has deteriorated as a meaningful US company for several years. You only need to watch their stock prices to figure out that the stock is no longer very attractive. They still have their aviation engine business but it too has felt the foreign sting. Rolls Royce is taking an ever increasing bite of the engine market. But they are only one company. Germany is another engine manufacturing country. Our own Pratt and Whitney has also felt the bite of foreign competition.

  23. oldsailor81…you said,
    “you cannot sell a product for less than it costs to produce, without eventually bankrupting yourself. No margin…NO PROFIT”

    May I take the liberty to add to your CORRECT statement with two additional words……..

    The unions of America have priced this nation “out of business”…

  24. This may cause some to bristle at first, but the author does make some very good points that one should ponder even if in disagreement.

    Exclusive: Robert Ringer sees 2 main reasons Americans won’t war with ruling class


  25. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    The unions of America have priced this nation “out of business”…

    The biggest mystery in my lifetime is how in hell does a Federal, state, city governments (Which are unions)ie. The Union of The Soviet Republic, HAVE THEIR OWN UNION???. The Taxpayer has no seat at the bargaining table. I would call a Government agency with a Union is a monopoly!!
    Does the Air Traffic Controllers ring a bell? Reagan fired them. Unions were created to protect workers from greedy corporations. I have always said the best answer to all of these problems would be the ESOP(Employee Stock Ownership Plan)
    PS – One of my favorite Lee Iaccoca stories was the one he told on himself. “When Mr. Ford called me into his office and fired me, I asked him why? “Because I don’t like you!’ Of course Lee got the last laugh going on to Chrysler.

  26. Rep. Marchant On Impeachment: Obama Investigations Underway In House, Senate & FBI


    “Thank you for contacting me regarding your desire for articles of impeachment to be brought against the President. […]

    There are currently investigations underway in the House, The Senate and at the FBI to gather as much information from the Administration as possible. I am involved with and support those investigations so that we can get all information about those that are responsible in order to hold them accountable. Namely, the President is under the most scrutiny and will have to face the truth of what we know to be fact in the many investigations.” […] – July 8, 2013

    Mr. Bill……..
    He not only got the last laugh at Ford Motor’s expense, he went to Chrysler and directed a program which would eventually turn one hell of a profit for Chrysler…..the MINIVANS……..and the timing couldn’t have been better. The mini vans sold like hotcakes. The minivans were closely followed by the SUVs…..and again Chrysler was eager and waiting. They sold a huge pile of the suvs as well.

    In the OLD DAYS the southern coal miners were being used by the companies who owned the mines. In those days the owners didn’t much give a damn whether a miner died or lived,and the conditions within many of the mines were outright dangerous. There was INDEED a need for somebody to act in behalf of the miners…..along came John L Lewis. He organised the miners into unions and went after the mine owners,to improve mine safety. H I have to admit that there was a genuine need for a strong union for the miners. But organised labor as a whole has taken over control of our society,and now everybody thinks that they should have the same pay as the CEO of the company. You cannot pay an unskilled laboropr $250,000.00 a year to shove a color coded bolt into a colorcoded hole ,put a color coded nut on it and tighten it with a color coded impact wrench.

  29. It sure looks to me like the judge trying the Zimmerman case intends to convict him of something…Judge West instructed the jury yesterday that they could convict Zimmerman of a lesser charge of manslaughter if they did not convict him of murder…….

    Even though Zimmerman is not charged with manslaughter…she told the jury they could convict him of that charge anyway…..what kind of court is she running…?

    It isn’t a court…it’s a lynch mob ! and the judge is the one holding the rope !!!

    She has committed so many egregious errors of court that it will be easy for Zimmerman to overturn any conviction that this judge imposes….what about her demands from the bench to know if Zimmerman intended to testify?……This was highly unusual and completely out of line for a judge to ask such a direct question of the defendant.

    Never before in the history of legal proceedings has a judge DEMANDED to know if the defendant intended to testify before his attorney placed him on the stand….What is it with this judge? Never before in the history of legal proceedings has a judge shut up the defense attorney and not allowed him to speak in defense of the defendant..well that is until Judge West came along, acting on orders from the OJ ( I assume)

    Of course this judge is acting on orders (again, i assume) from the Department of Justice and Eric Holder, who used DOJ funds to incite the public in favor of Martin before the trial began…. .which of course is against the law too….but that don’t count, he was only protecting a person that the President of the United States said that if he had a son, he wished he was like Trayvon Martin, but that isn’t undue influence against the defendant, that’s just good politics….according to the DOJ version of the law..

    It’s getting to a point in America where a white man, or a Hispanic man cannot expect justice in any court of law.There…I have said it…and if that makes me a racist…so be it.

    What a sham that is going on in Florida….the trial should never have taken place according to Florida law…if the law is correct and valid, Zimmerman had every right to the “Stand your Ground” defense….end of case..

    The jury is dismissed..

    Now Mr Zimmerman you may proceed with your civil suit against CNN. I hope you have a more professional judge this time around !

  30. Who is Barack Hussein Obama, or is it Barry Soetoro?

    With each passing day, it becomes more evident that the United States is a “captured operation,” and has been taken over from within. At the epicenter of the tyrannical takeover is none other than Barack Hussein Obama, a man also known as Barry Soetoro.

    The terrifying yet largely unreported fact is that after two elections and nearly five years, we still do not know with certainty the legal name, true legal identity or status of the man holding the highest office in America.

    Equally disturbing, and something that should concern everyone, is that anyone who continues to raise questions about Obama’s eligibility status or the authenticity of his long form birth certificate is either subjected to public ridicule or worse, threats to their safety.


  31. RM.
    The prosocution gave their final argument. I heard some of it but not all. Tomorrow the defense will speak. SO MUCH more evidence should have been allowed…… for instance Martin’s use of “lean” (Arizona tea + Skittles + cough syrup = one hefty physcotic drug which produces VERY violent behavior.) Martin tweeted about his use. And 2 ingredients were purchaced at the local 7-11 right before the incident. Also his MMA fight videos were not allowed. I honestly feel so sorry for Zimmerman. I personally believe he’s innocent………..but either way, he will never be a free man. He will have a price on his head, for the crime of being “white hispanic”.

  32. I think there is cause for a mistrial because of the judge (her extremely arrogant and rude behavior toward the defense). Maybe that is her goal.

  33. Interested Bystander

    Hey All,


    I know you know, but the Judges name is Nelson, West is one of Zimmerman’s lawyers.

    I would also say that I HAVE seen Judges ask the defendant if they were going to testify (I believe in the Casey Anthony trial, she was asked by the Judge), but it is SUPPOSED to be asked AFTER the defense has called it’s last witness, which it was very well known was NOT the case when Nelson asked.

    West objected to the judge asking Zimmerman the question when they still had two witnesses left to call, and was over ruled three times.

    West also reminded the Judge that lawyers can speak for their clients, which Nelson pretty much ignored and said something like,

    “I am talking to Mr Zimmerman, Mr Zimmerman have you made up your mind whether you are going to testify?…………..”

    From what I understand, the NAACP is starting it’s convention in Orlando tomorrow, and Nelson would like the trial to be OVER before the weekend.

    I wonder WHEN the NAACP decided to have it’s convention in Orlando? Coincidence, I don’t think so.

    If you all didn’t see a couple days ago, court went until 10:00pm with arguments over evidence being allowed or not.

    At the end of the day, Nelson told the lawyers that they would be back in court at 8am the next morning and West, rightfully so I believe, said to the Judge,

    It’s 10 oclock in the evening and I don’t know how much longer I can keep this pace up, and Nelson simply walked out of the courtroom.

    Also last night at the end of court, O’Mara asked Nelson for time to “tweak” his closing and the Judge told him that they would start with jury instruction arguments at 10am and closing arguments at 1pm, with the State using 2 of it’s 3 hours and then the Defense going after the State, and then the State getting their last hour on Friday morning before instructions and sending the jury out to deliberate.

    O’Mara stood up and asked the judge why he couldn’t give his closing on Friday also, and the judge said something to the affect of:

    “I made that decision because it makes sense to me”.

    The Prosecution’s closing was at best WEAK.

    There’ll be some free stuff gotten this weekend, I would predict, and lots of destruction.

    My question is where are the people predicting riots if Zimmerman is convicted by the Zimmerman supporters?

    I’m not profiling though……………….I swear!!!

  34. Interested Bystander

    And by the way, the defense closing was postponed until tomorrow morning, I don’t know if that was because jury instruction arguments went long, or if Nelson actually has a heart.

  35. Interested Bystander

    I read this comment on another thread but I agree 100%….

    I am paraphrasing, NOT quoting:

    Why, if the goal is to highlight minority killings by hispanics isn’t Jesse Jackson and Sharpton and the like screaming bloody murder against the NE Patriots former Tight end Hernandez????

    I mean, they pick George (who they THOUGHT was white, have you seen his mother?) and have run with their “he profiled and stalked Trayvon, and oh by the way, George was the aggressor also”, when they have this Hernandez guy given to them on a silver platter.

    I would submit that most people don’t even know the person Hernandez killed, after planning it, was a young black man, just like Trayvon.

  36. SUEQ….
    You are so right…Zimmerman’s life is ruined….even if he walks free…he will be a marked man with a bulls eye on his back wherever he goes…..from the black community…….

    It really is too bad that the citizens of this country can’t get past the black/white thing and look at things from a point of reality………

    To the majority of the black community….it would not matter even if pictures were taken where Martin was in the process of killing Zimmerman….it would not matter if there were eye witnesses that saw the whole thing…..proof means nothing to an enraged mob that were brought to that point by statements made by our highest official in Washington…….

    This Martin thing was engineered as a racial thing from the beginning to take the heat off of other more serious scandals …and it will be pursued in the future in the same manner…..

    I now understand that the Governor of Florida is preparing his law enforcement for racial unrest across the state….that’s too bad. It plays right into what is desired from Washington.

    I do not think that the jury in this case will find Zimmerman guilty of any wrongdoing…..I would hope they look at the evidence (or lack of evidence) that is presented and make their decision based on that…..If they look for other things, then they have not done their duty.

  37. You are correct IB…I got my names mixed up….thanks

    Off topic but IMPORTANT……
    Did anyone watch Orren Hatch today on Cspan. It is clearly obvious that he has indeed had his fill of the Soetoro JACKASSES, who think UP is DOWN. Hatch feels as though the implementation of the alleged Healthcare law should be delayed PERMANENTLY, because in his own words it will financially RUIN the US. He stated that it will drive the US to the single payer system which is Socialised Medicine exactly like Europe. The present crap was not an accident,it was intentionallty made what it is for the purpose of driving the US into SOCIALISED Medicine/ It appears that if Hatch has had it with the LIBERAL BULLSHI# then there is a reasonable conclusion that there are a lot of other Congressmen who feel likewise. It is not only the Healthcare crapola but he took some time to hit upon the IRS CRAPOLA as well. by asking ifd the IRS cannot manage 1700 applications for 501 status how the hell are they ever going to manage MILLIONS of claims? He is quite right.

  39. oldsailor 81

    …………..I personally believe that Hatch carries a pretty big stick with regard to INFLUENCE. I think if he was to lead an IMPEACHMENT proceeding the rest of the GOP might follow his lead. The trick would be to get enough Democrats on board as well. I tend to think that there are a LOT of Dems who have also had it with Soetoro. It will only require the right person to take his place at the head of the line,and the rest of the MORONS will FOLLOW.

    Obama Caught In Bald-Faced Lie On Sequester

    Greta Van Susteren played a montage of political statements on the sequester. From the video, it is clear that the sequester cuts were a product of the White House. It is also clear that Obama continues to get away with a bald-faced lie that the idea was something Congress proposed.

    ……….and if it happens I pray that CRIMINAL INDICTMENTS will FOLLOW and ALL of the Soetoro supporters in Congress and elsewhere will feel the bite of the GARROTE. Just like the Nurenberg trials at the end of WW2. At present the US is a CAPSISED SHIP and it is taking on water very fast. Has anyone watched the obvious NEUROSIS of our young people in Boston who are now protesting the incarceration of the one remaing Boston bomber. If you look at the HALFWIT expression on their faces ytou can see why they suppport the BASTARD.

    I think there is cause for a mistrial because of the judge (her extremely arrogant and rude behavior toward the defense). Maybe that is her goal.
    I think some of the people involved with the Trayvon “trial” are trying to place themselves in the “proper” perspective of this case to avoid any racial backlash, once this case is over, one way or another. This country is paralyzed with fear over concerns for political correctness.

    Forget that, let’s get back to relying on the truth. The “political correctness” ploys are being used by this country’s enemies, to harm our country, and to drive wedges into the populace. The group of criminals calling themselves the government of the USA have taken control of our country, and it will take a lot of courage to rock the boat, and clean up this mess. I

    Senator Blunt Co-Sponsors Amendments To Delay Onerous ObamaCare Mandates

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – In light of the Obama Administration’s recent announcement that it will delay the ObamaCare employer mandate until 2015, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) co-sponsored two amendments today that would delay the individual and employer mandates. The amendments were introduced by U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (Kan.) to the FY2014 Labor-HHS-Ed appropriations bill.
    “Picking and choosing which aspects of this flawed law to postpone is like riding a bike with one wheel – it simply does not work,” said Blunt. “I’ll continue to support efforts to repeal and defund ObamaCare so that we can prevent this deeply flawed law from enacting further economic harm to individuals, families, job creators, and all Americans.”
    Blunt joined his colleagues for a press conference and signed a letter yesterday calling on President Barack Obama to enact a permanent delay of ObamaCare for all Americans. Blunt also spoke on the Senate floor this week about this critical issue, and invited Missourians to share their questions about the burdensome law on Facebook and Twitter.

The group of criminals calling themselves the government of the USA have taken control of our country, and it will take a lot of courage to rock the boat, and clean up this mess.
    Isn’t it ironic that when the Usurper took office, people thought that racism was on its way out. After all, we put a “black” in the highest office of the land. That was a first – a beginning. Ha! We are seeing more and more drummed-up racism ever since. The progressives love to foment it, because anything that divides the country also weakens us as a nation. A weakened, divided country is exactly the climate our enemies desire.

  50. Good morning CW et. al,


    I agree with your Zimmerman trial analysis. I would also personally add, I Profile all the time and nearly everyday in my life! There is nothing wrong with Profiling. There is also nothing wrong with discriminating when properly used.

    I began my Profiling and discriminating usage at a very early age in life. The best example was when I finally chose my spouse. I could have chosen many others, but didn’t. The methodology I used for such selection was discrimination and profiling. I could have chosen a man instead of a woman, sexual discrimination? Yep! I could have chosen a elderly widow. Age discrimination? Yep! I could have chosen a different race. Racial discrimination? Yep! Was that wrong? Of course not. We all do it. I know you already know that of course. All of here at CW do.

  51. My dear friends,

    I’m off to work, then the long drive this evening after work back home to Tennessee. Have fun today, and always remember to play nice with the Obots should they arrive anywhere. Albeit they seem to be very quite of late.

    Judge In Zimmerman Case Pressured by Obama Administration?

    Bizarre outburst against Zimmerman suggests prejudice

    Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
    July 11, 2013

    Speculation is raging that the judge in the George Zimmerman case could have been put under pressure by the Obama administration after she staged a bizarre outburst during which she interrogated Zimmerman while repeatedly silencing his lawyers.

    ……..Both of Zimmerman’s lawyers appeared shocked as attorney Mark O’Mara asked under his breath, “what is going on?”

    Several legal experts and observers said the outburst was unprecedented.

    “I have never seen that in more than 30 years of court reporting,” tweeted journalist Kathi Belich.

    Former Senatorial candidate Richard Rivette also expressed his shock at the judge’s behavior.

    “This judge is an idiot. I spent five years investigating high profile capital cases defending people from the death penalty, and worked for the Federal judiciary as an independent investigator on other cases. No judge ever inquires as to whether a defendant will testify until the entire defense case is presented. If the defense rests and does not call the defendant then the judge knows there will be no testimony. If the defense calls the defendant then that’s when the judge finds out. They have to get through the entire case first. To see if it is valid after prosecution cross-examines their witnesses and experts as to whether a defendant SHOULD testify, which is decided in private not in public, and NOT on the record. By doing this, the judge has undermined a portion of Zimmerman’s credibility. He looks like he is waffling and this is normal judge/defendant questioning, which it is NOT,” said Rivette.


  54. The consequences of an ever deepening immoral culture: violence between the generations due to the entitlement culture. Why this evil and diabolical administration forces contraception on everyone, including those who object, making them pay for it.

    On contraception and the coming violence: Interview with Pope’s personal theologian

    Beyond the issue of people working less and living longer which creates economic instability, Fr. Giertych discussed “the moral issue of spending money and throwing the debt on the next generation, on a generation which has been partly aborted, which has not met with the generosity of the parents,” and described it as “the preparation of a violent conflict between generations.”

    “I am seeing this brewing, certainly in Europe,” added Fr. Giertych. “In America at least you have a public debate about the morality of extending the public debt and throwing the responsibility on the future generation.”

    Children living in poverty because their parents experienced a tragedy or war, can live with their circumstances understanding the calamity that led to their state he explained. He contrasted that however with “a vast segment of society saying we are poor compared to what the generation of our parents had, not because there was some catastrophe, but because the generation of our parents consumed all the [wealth] and threw the responsibility on us.”

    The papal theologian drew attention to the violent youth protests and mass unemployment across Europe. “They are generally demonstrating saying, ‘We have the right to receive’, because their parents received grants for their studies, they received cheaper housing, and so they have this sense of entitlement which is a consequence of socialism – somebody has to give.”

    Fr. Giertych warned “ultimately there will be a violent conflict.”

    He said: “And the states are finally saying, ‘We cannot give. There is a limit, you know. How far can we go?’ And of course the state may produce money and be more and more in debt, but ultimately there will be a violent conflict, and euthanasia is one aspect of this conflict, which is a direct consequence of the expulsion of the transmission of life and the living out of sexuality. Ultimately it boils down to contraception – it’s a consequence.”

    The Church, he said, will have an answer for the youth, one they will need to and be glad to hear. “I think there will come a moment where the young people will need to hear, will be glad to hear from the Church a voice which will be on their side, and a voice which will point to the egoism of the hedonist generation that has distorted society,” he said. “And it has distorted society beginning at a very important focal point, which is sexuality… and we are seeing the consequences.”

    ……He explained that “marital love is to be of the supreme quality” but “contraception boils down to the saying of the spouse, ‘There’s something in you that I love, but there’s something in you that I hate, and I hate the fact that you can be a mother. So I require that this will be poisoned.’ Well, this is not love. It is not possible for a husband to say to his wife, ‘I love you truly,’ if at the same time he demands that she poisons in her body the capacity to transmit life, to be a mother.”

    “That distortion of sexuality,” he said, “distorts human relationships, distorts the entire living-out of human sexuality.”

    He added:

    “When sexuality is not tied with the virtue of chastity, which trains the person how to integrate the sexual desire within charity, then everything is rocked. And certainly we are seeing this once contraception became so easily available. We’re seeing, successively, the distortions of sexuality, and problems on the level of human relationships, of marriages breaking down, of a violent aggressiveness of women who are discovering that they are being abused as a result of contraception, and so they’re landing in an aggressive feminism, with rage against men. Contraception is leading to abortion, because it treats the potential child as an enemy, and if something goes wrong and a child is conceived then the child is easily aborted.”


  55. One last comment,

    It appears to me, the Judge has indeed been influenced by Holder’s DOJ heads. This is not good for Zimmerman. Here is what I now believe will happen. The judge and Holder’s DOJ knew full well there is no case and the prosecution has failed as shown. The judge knows (and so does Holder) he will be found not guilty of 2nd degree murder. However, the judge alone – after the not guilty verdict – can find Zimmerman guilty of Manslaughter, and when its a minor, is 20 years prison. Which is actually more time than the 2nd degree murder charge itself. She knows they will of course appeal and have a right too. She gave them that option, that’s what she did.

    But it will be several years in prison before his case is heard again on appeals. It also relieves the judge and the community of any repercussion of racial outbreaks. Where have we seen this judicial action before?


    Sitting behind him and in full view of the jury is a black woman….I assume she is a court reporter or something……every once in a while she gets a scowl on her face over something the attorney says…….

    I will bet a hundred to one….many of the jury are looking at her reactions………anyone can tell she is obviously in disagreement with the attorney……

    just happened….maybe not !

  58. CAUGHT ON TAPE: Obama Justice Official Urges Action Against George Zimmerman


    Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, July 12, 2013, 12:12 AM

    Now this…
    Judicial Watch released audio today of an Obama Department of Justice official urging Sanford city officials to take action against George Zimmerman.

    The Washington Times reported:

    The legal watchdog Judicial Watch released an audio recording Thursday of a Department of Justice staffer urging Sanford, Fla., city officials and the minority advocacy group Dream Defenders to seek justice for Trayvon Martin, because “if a community perceives that there’s something wrong in the black community, there’s something wrong.”

    “CRS is an arm of the department that we call the Peacemakers,” Thomas Battles, regional director of the DOJ’s Community Relations Service, said at a meeting at the Shiloh Church on April 19, 2012. “We work with communities where there is real or perceived racial tensions.”

    “…When Trayvon happened, for many of us, it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back,” he continued. “We had grown up in a state and environment where race is a way of life … We’re not from Sanford, but what Sanford represented to us was the very real problems going around this state and this country. We wanted to figure out how could we stand in solidarity, and how could we make this about not just justice for Trayvon, but using this moment and using the opportunity to honor his memory, to honor his spirit by working to bring down the various structures and the various systems that allow something like this to happen.”

    Just when we thought this administration could go no lower – we find out they have been actively interfering with a Florida criminal case.
    There is absolutely nothing that is off limits to this administration.

  59. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    Does anyone besides me notice that the closing defense lawyer is constantly rubbing or wiping his nose?? Watch when it resumes.

  60. Thanks for the above OBSERVER…the article said,
    ” “if a community perceives that there’s something wrong in the black community, there’s something wrong.”…

    The community “perceived” there was something wrong because the Department of Justice told them there was something wrong…… long before Zimmerman was ever arrested or charged..

    We are living in a sick society where “the squeeky wheel” always gets the grease. The “squeeky wheel” in this case is black community. We are living in a society where it doesn’t make any difference if you are a criminal or not….but it all depends on the color of your skin.

    According to Florida’s “stand your ground” laws, Zimmerman should never have been placed on trial….period.

    If Zimmerman is found guilty of anything, will we see if the HISPANIC community will stand up for Zimmerman ?…or will the will of black community again prevail regardless if they are right…or wrong.

    If Zimmerman is found not guilty, will we see the black community riot because of the “perceived community” feelings? What will happen if judge acting on her own, as WILLIAM has stated finds Zimmerman guilty of manslaughter, without a verdict from the jury?

    The bottom line is this: If it were Martin that shot Zimmerman, and Martin had the protection of Florida’s “stand your ground” law, this trial would not be taking place…….this is what it all boils down too.

    This is a trial about color…but most people are afraid to say it !

  61. Dominicans Freak Out Over Obama’s Gay Ambassador Pick
    Posted By John Hudson Thursday, July 11, 2013 – 1:55 PM

    Opposition to President Obama’s nominee for U.S. ambassador to the Dominican Republic reached a fever pitch this week as religious organizers stage a “Lunes Negro” or Black Monday protest against James “Wally” Brewster.

    If confirmed, Brewster will be the first openly gay ambassador to the country, a prospect that is not going over well with some segments of this conservative Christian country of 9 million people.


  62. Who is Barack Hussein Obama,
    or is it Barry Soetoro?
    “There were threats made”
    By Doug Hagmann @ Canada Free Press

    With each passing day, it becomes more evident that the United States is a “captured operation,” and has been taken over from within. At the epicenter of the tyrannical takeover is none other than Barack Hussein Obama, a man also known as Barry Soetoro.

    The terrifying yet largely unreported fact is that after two elections and nearly five years, we still do not know with certainty the legal name, true legal identity or status of the man holding the highest office in America.

    Equally disturbing, and something that should concern everyone, is that anyone who continues to raise questions about Obama’s eligibility status or the authenticity of his long form birth certificate is either subjected to public ridicule or worse, threats to their safety.

    This issue was again brought to the forefront last month when Mike Zullo, lead investigator for the Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse tasked with looking into the Obama eligibility matter, held a public update regarding the status of their investigation. Mr. Zullo publicly confirmed the facts contained in an exclusive report published on August 4, 2009, by me and Canada Free Press founding editor Judi McLeod, when we jointly disclosed that a national talk show host stated that he was threatened with his career, “or worse,” should he talk about the issue of Barack Hussein Obama’s birth records to a national audience.

    About three minutes into his public investigative update, Mr. Zullo stated:

    “I have been in contact with prominent media people, I cannot and will not disclose their identities that was the commitment I made. They fear for their jobs and some fear for their safety. There were threats made. There were people threatened with their occupations, losing their occupation if they continue this.”

    According to Mr. Zullo, the corporate media is intentionally refusing to address this matter, which also includes the issue of a demonstrably fraudulent federal document, Barack Hussein Obama’s long form birth certificate, being published on the official White House website. Mr. Zullo stated that his interim report of investigation is currently about 325 pages long with another 80 pages to be added shortly. He expects the final investigative report to be somewhere about 700-800 pages long, and will also include matters pertaining to Obama’s selective service registration and social security number controversies.

    Regarding the authenticity of the long form birth certificate posted on the White House website, detective Zullo described the document as “fatally flawed” and not a valid document at all. He stated that the identifying document purported by the White House to be a true copy of the original long form birth certificate is a manual creation by someone with planning and intent and contains proof of “human manipulation.” He also stated that the document “could not survive judicial scrutiny on any level,” adding that the creation or manipulation of a legal document is a felony.

    The image posted on the White House website of Obama’s purported long form birth certificate was also examined by Reed Hayes, a highly credentialed certified document examiner. Mr. Hayes concluded: “In over 20 years of examining documentation of various types, I have never seen a document that is so seriously questionable in so many respects. In my opinion, the birth certificate is entirely fabricated.”

    Threats and intimidation continue […] Continued @ Canada Free Press. Hat tip Bob68.


  63. Shock Audio: Obama Supporter & Lady Preacher’s Racist & Vile Sermon Against “Birthers”


  64. I didn’t write this, but I sure wish I had…


    He’s was getting old and paunchy, and his hair is falling fast.
    And he sat around the Legion, telling stories of the past.
    Of a war that he once fought in, and the deeds that he had done.
    In his exploits with his buddies, they were hero’s, every one.

    And tho’ sometimes to his neighbors, his tales became a joke.
    All his buddies listened quietly, because they knew of where he spoke.
    But we’ll hear his tales no longer, for old Joe has passed away.
    And the worlds a little poorer, for a Soldier died today.

    He won’t be mourned by many, just his children and his wife.
    For he lived an ordinary, very quit sort of life.
    He held a job, and raised a family, going quietly on his way.
    And the world won’t note his passing, tho’ a Soldier died today.

    When politicians leave this earth, their bodies lie in state.
    While thousands note their passing, and proclaim that they were great.
    Papers tell of their life stories, from the time that they were young.
    But the passing of a Soldier goes unnoticed and unsung.

    Is the greatest contribution to the welfare of our land,
    Some jerk that breaks his promise and cons his fellow man?
    Or the ordinary fellow, who in time of war and strife,
    Goes off to serve his country and offers up his life?

    The politician’s stipend and the style in which he lives,
    Are often disproportionate to the service that he gives.
    While the ordinary Soldier who offers up his all,
    Is paid off with a medal, and a pension that is uncommonly small.

    It is not the politicians with their compromise and ploys,
    Who won for us the freedom that our country now enjoys.
    Should you find yourself in danger, with your enemies close at hand.
    Would you really want some cop-out weasel, with his ever waffling stand?

    Or would you want a Soldier, his home, his country, his kin,
    Just an average Soldier, who would carry the fight to the end.
    He was just a common Soldier, and his ranks are now growing thin.
    But his presence should remind us that we may need his likes again.

    For when countries are in conflict, we find the Soldier’s part,
    Is to clean up all the problems that the politicians start.
    If we cannot do him honor, while he’s here to hear the praise.
    Then at least, let’s give him homage at the ending of his days.

    Perhaps a simple headline in the local paper that might say,
    Our country is in mourning, for a Soldier just died today.
