Blagojevich appeal update August 19, 2014, US court of appeals seventh circuit decision, Empress Casino Joliet Corp v John Johnston et al, Quid pro quo between racetracks and Governor Blagojevich

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

“Why was Tony Rezko’s sentencing delayed?”…Citizen Wells

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

 

 

We are still awaiting a decision from the US Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit on the Blagojevich appeal.

Yesterday the court of appeals presented their decision on Empress Casino Joliet Corp v John Johnston, et al.

Some of the most damning wording for Blagojevich is the following:

“The summary judgment record contains considerable evidence that, if credited, would support the allegation of a quid pro quo between the Racetracks and Governor Blagojevich. When Blagojevich did not immediately sign the ’08 Act into law, Racetracks executive Johnston stated to a colleague in an email: “We are going to have to put a stronger bit in his mouth!?!” Johnston complained to Blagojevich’s chief of staff Monk that the delays in signing the bill were costing Johnston $9,000 per day. A factfinder could conclude that Blagojevich was talking about Johnston’s commitment to pay $100,000 when he informed Monk that he would “like some separation between that and signing the bill.” After the FBI recorded Monk and Blagojevich scheming about getting Johnston to pay, Monk met with Johnston and, according to Monk, delivered the message that the bill would not be signed until he paid.”

From Chicago Law Bulletin August 18, 2014.

“Reviving a lawsuit accusing racetrack owners of offering a bribe to then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich, a federal appeals court has addressed when political horse-trading crosses the line “from the merely unseemly to the unlawful.”
The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals did not rule on the merits of the claim that Blagojevich in 2008 signed legislation favored by the racetrack industry in return for the promise of a $100,000 campaign contribution.
But the court ruled there is enough evidence — if true — to support a finding of a quid pro quo exchange between Blagojevich and the industry.
And assuming such an exchange took place, the court continued, it directly harmed four riverboat casinos in northern Illinois by leading to the implementation of the Horse Racing Act.”
“The casinos do not allege that members of the Illinois General Assembly were offered or took any bribes to pass the bill, the panel wrote.
And deeming officials’ support of legislation to be illegal merely because campaign contributions were solicited and received about the time the legislation was enacted, the panel wrote, would leave the officials open to prosecution for conduct long thought legal.
Such an action, the panel continued, quoting McCormick v. United States, 500 U.S. 257 (1991), also would lead to prosecutions for conduct “that in a very real sense is unavoidable so long as election campaigns are financed by private contributions or expenditures, as they have been from the beginning of the nation.”
It’s a different story, the panel wrote, when it comes to the 2008 renewal legislation.
Evidence that Blagojevich signed the bill in exchange for the promise of a $100,000 contribution included the criminal trial testimony of Blagojevich’s former chief of staff, Alonzo Monk, and Johnston’s admission that he offered the bribe, the panel wrote.
Johnston received immunity from prosecution, and Monk pleaded guilty to corruption charges.”
Read more:
This transaction is the only time I recall the appeals court judges stating that Blagojevich was clearly involved in a quid pro quo activity. During the initial oral arguments phase and in the lastest decision they otherwise question whether or not he was involved in traditional political activities.
This fact coupled with the earlier irregularities in the Blagojevich trials and subsequent delays in producing the transcripts leads me to believe that Blagojevich will get a reduced sentence.

    The WAPO reported that Mister Brown was college bound and makes it sound like the police officer involved just singled him out for no reason. Luckily the internet filters the news now. Here’s some background on Mister Brown…….

    This is going to be another Travon case as most Libs and blacks are not going to like the outcome.
    The new Racial poster boy Michael R Brown has felony’s pending in Court, yes that guy who was on his way to College was arrested and charged with Burglary, Armed criminal action, assault with the intent to do great bodily harm, and again armed criminal action all stemming from one incident. He was going to court in Sept, I thought he was supposed to go to college in Sept??
    You can look all this up yourself on Case.net Missouri. Do your search inSt. Louis County in 2014, you’ll find him.
    Whenever Al Sharpton, Jesse and Obama chime in it winds up being another Tawana Brawley case, they destroyed Zimmerman and they will destroy this officer as well even though it most likely will be found he was justified…

    Black Racism is Politically Correct
    By Kevin Jackson
    I’m amazed at how openly racist black Liberals have become, and how few non-blacks are willing to call them out on it.
    I was waiting to be interviewed on CNN the other night, and I was listening in advance of my appearance to an interview of a Missouri legislator said to Don Lemmon, [pp] “The way for Ferguson Missouri to improve public relations is to have more black cops.”
    Can you imagine the reaction if a city asked for more white cops?
    This call for “blackness” as an answer to what’s plaguing the black community is happening a lot, and quite frankly is disturbing.
    Pretty soon when we go to a store, black people will only be able to be helped by black people. Imagine a warped world where only somebody of your same COLOR could help you?!
    “Colorization” seems to be the answer to all things for Liberals, and is most important to black Liberals. More black is supposed to be better. It never is!
    For the life of me, I don’t understand why on Gore’s green Earth black people would want more black people controlling their lives.
    Cities are replete with black folks in charge of other black folks: Black aldermen, black city councilmen, majority black school boards (maybe one token white), black mayors, and the real shot-callers known as the Congressional Black Caucus.
    Add to this a black president and a black attorney general, and you have a cornucopia of black power, all of which has led to devastation in the black community. And how is the life of Michael Brown celebrated in the black community? Looting.
    You’d think by now black Liberals would have had enough of black leadership, because all they need to do is look at the evidence.
    Obama has run the nation into the ground; and as I wrote a while back, if you want a recipe for failure in a municipality, elect a black Liberal.
    When will black people select who is best for the job, regardless of color?
    I have a friend who has been to prison twice. He left high school in the eleventh grade unable to read. He started committing armed robberies shortly thereafter, and was sent to prison the first time.
    Upon his first release, the inmates bet on when he would be back, and an “OG” in the prison predicted my friend would return in less than six months. “You ain’t learned nothin’ in prison. You still a thug,” he told my friend.
    My friend returned to prison almost six months to the day, again for armed robbery.
    While in prison the second time, my friend learned to read. He was taught to read by an old white lady, and she taught him to read from the Bible.
    He explained to me that this woman was his first real interaction with a white person, as he had robbed all the others. He described the care in which she took to make sure that he learned how to read properly.
    He said that learning to read from the Bible taught him lessons beyond putting words together, lessons he would apply the next time he was released.
    He’s out of prison and a solid citizen, because of an old white woman.
    My friend says this old white lady made the most impact in his life to date. Up to the point of meeting this old lady, my friend thought of white people as evil. He learned upon reflection that many of his black “friends” were not friends at all. They were enablers of his self-destruction and catalysts to his destruction.
    This idea that having more black people is the answer is the most racist mentality one could have. That said; I understand it.
    What black Liberals are saying inadvertently is white Liberalism isn’t working. White Liberals do NOT help the black community, because they won’t tell black people the truth. As Thomas Sowell said about truth,

    “When you want to help people, you tell the truth. When you want to help yourself, you tell people what they want to hear.”

    America will change when Americans have the guts to tell black people the truth.

    is not, by itself, illegal. Bribes are. This case requires us once again to decide whether some

    I am getting ready to go to my doctor but later I will get on case.net and help narrow the name down. On the top of the page click on (parties and attorneys) and most usually all the time it will have the parties BIRTH DATE.
    Brown is 18 so the age will narrow the name search down.
    I understand mom lives in Troy, Missouri and grandma in Ferguson, Missouri and that big boy lived with grandma. ??

  12. Ginger, I don’t know if Brown lived in Troy. But That info is out there. Anybody know for sure the address where he lived?

  13. Brown Family: Black Panther Malik Shabazz Is “Instigating And Hijacking” #Ferguson Protests – Should “LEAVE”
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, August 20, 2014, 8:24 AM

    The family of Michael Brown, the 18 year old Ferguson, MO man gunned down by police after he robbed a liquor store, is publicly demanding radical New Black Panther Malik Shabazz to leave Ferguson after accusing him of “instigating and hijacking” the Ferguson protests.

  14. Mrs. P,
    Thanks for posting that splendid article about Black racism. I can’t help but think of the twenty years that Obama spent in Wright’s church that teaches black liberation theology. No wonder the “preacher” said, “g….d…..America!” and Obama AND Holder reflect that same sentiment. Now we are seeing the full extent of what Wright has been preaching all of those years.

  15. Jonah,
    That certainly is a step In the right direction by the Brown family! It’s gratifying to get some goods news amongst all of the bad.

  16. Malik Shabazz “instigating and hijacking” the Ferguson protests.
    What do you think?
    Don’t you wonder who’s responsible for bringing in all those out-of-state protesters?

    Remember, you saw it and heard it here first. We have heard (from a VERY connected national media source) that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson will be cleared in the shooting of Michael Brown. The key: Dorian Johnson has now admitted that Michael Brown attacked Officer Wilson and attempted to take his gun. OFFICER WILSON WILL NOT BE CHARGED! This is scary. When this news is made official, we all have reason to be concerned about the reaction.

    Wondering if Johnson could have flipped due to being charged as an accessory to an attack on a police officer….esp. after realizing he had head fractures and perhaps even an attempted murder charge against an officer since the gun was grabbed for and went off in the attack.

  22. Observer……
    You are very close to my reasoning, and I believe that might be the FUNDAMENTAL reason for trying to protect himself as much as he can. If he is indicted he probably will be potentially facing ACCESSORY TO ATTEMPTED MURDER OF A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER. However I am not going to hold my breath,because it is still a possibility that Eric Holder will see to it that the officer is charged with VIOLATING THE CIVIL RIGHTS of Michael Brown,irregardless of having attacked the officer. If Hold -her does NOTHING it will be a huge surprise to me. With him UP is DOWN. If he leaves town having done nothing then I agree that the officer will probably be acquitted. That is when the STINKING SLIMES who try to stir up trouble might try to hang the officer,or a member of his family or all of them. It was quite clear that they were trying to instigate a lynching yesterday. BYE BYE Mr. GDZINGA, MR SHI#-AZZ, and Mr. DULL-ton your BULLSHI# isn’t helping your peers. The entire matter is FAR from over. I did not see any perceptible action as a result of the killing of the slimey bastard at the convenience store in Dellwood. He had been ORDERED to put down the knife but he chose to try to attack an officer. BANG,BANG, and another would be attacker bites the dust. har har He will never again do such an act. As I have said so many times when you are dealing with people whose IQ is nearly zero,the only thing such morons understand is physical FORCE,either from a set of knuckles or from the muzzle of a rifle, shotgun,or handheld firearm.

  23. ……If Brown,s prints are on the weapon,……….there will be no case no matter how they try. The charge would then be attempted MURDER of an officer.

    =============================
    Johnson also has an outstanding arrest warrant for theft….didn’t show up of hearing.

    The police report of the 2011 theft for which Johnson was arrested, said the suspect abandoned the box that contained the backpack near a YMCA and then went inside. Police identified Johnson based on surveillance videos and approached him in the facility.

    He identified himself as “Derrick” but later was found to be Dorian J. Johnson. He was charged with larceny, with an added count for the false identification.

    Officers also reported he falsely claimed he was 16 years old – he was 19 at the time – and hid an ID card in his sock.

    Johnson was a student at the time at Lincoln University in Jefferson City.

  26. Ferguson Police Have Body Cameras, But Don’t Wear Them

    http://benswann.com/ferguson-police-have-body-cameras-but-dont-wear-them/

  27. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com

    The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store…

    …Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

    The St. Louis County Police told reporters after the shooting that the police officer involved suffered facial injuries. He “was hit” and the “side of his face was swollen.”

    Today The New York Times reported that Officer Darren Wilson was hit and injured in the attack. This came from “forensic analysis” and “Ferguson witnesses.”

    Now this…
    Sources close to the investigation confirmed that Michael Brown (Darren Wilson) was “badly beaten” and suffered a “fractured eye socket” during his confrontation with 6 foot 4 inch, 300 pound robber Michael Brown.
    Hollie McKay at FOX News reported:

    According to the well-placed source, Wilson was coming off another case in the neighborhood on Aug. 9 when he ordered Michael Brown and his friend Dorain Johnson to stop walking in the middle of the road because they were obstructing traffic. However, the confrontation quickly escalated into physical violence, the source said..

    “They ignored him and the officer started to get out of the car to tell them to move,” the source said. “They shoved him right back in, that’s when Michael Brown leans in and starts beating Officer Wilson in the head and the face.

    The source claims that there is “solid proof” that there was a struggle between Brown and Wilson for the policeman’s firearm, resulting in the gun going off – although it still remains unclear at this stage who pulled the trigger. Brown started to walk away according to the account, prompting Wilson to draw his gun and order him to freeze. Brown, the source said, raised his hands in the air, and turned around saying, “What, you’re going to shoot me?”

    At that point, the source told FoxNews.com, the 6 foot, 4 inch, 300-pound Brown charged Wilson, prompting the officer to fire at least six shots at him, including the fatal bullet that penetrated the top of Brown’s skull, according to an independent autopsy conducted at the request of Brown’s family.

    Wilson suffered a fractured eye socket in the fracas, and was left dazed by the initial confrontation, the source said. He is now “traumatized, scared for his life and his family, injured and terrified” that a grand jury, which began hearing evidence on Wednesday, will “make some kind of example out of him,” the source said.

    The source also said the dashboard and body cameras, which might have recorded crucial evidence, had been ordered by Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson, but had only recently arrived and had not yet been deployed.

    =======================

    IF Johnson has a police record and IF he was on probation and an accomplice in strong armed robbery, he could be facing jail time. Maybe he will be subject to the witness protection program in return for a TRUTHFUL testimony. Protection from angry mobs and free rent. Looks like a pretty good option if a guy was recently evicted and has to pay child support.

    Just speculation.

    SOURCE: BROWN BEAT COP

    Missouri cop was badly beaten before shooting Michael Brown, says source……

    Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department’s top brass told FoxNews.com.

    “The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”

    ******************
    Businesses and money minded people started hiding their money when the dems took The House in Nov 2006, the same time the economy started to decline. They all knew the democrats would start raising taxes and start imposing rules and regulations detrimental to business, and it has been downhill ever since.

  46. ……..i particularly enjoyed watching the videos of her behavior as the officers tried to get her to walk the line……there was moments when she was leaning nearly 45 degrees. How she kept from falling is beyond me. She looks ,and acts like a BAR ROOM BROAD…….obviously she had been visiting a local pub somewhere along the line. Her general appearance and behavior made me immediately think of Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Kathleen ——— who was the governor of Louisana when the hurricane struck. She was so damned stoned she had to use a spokesperson even though the microphone was only three feet away. As a result of her TWISTED BEHAVIOR the 9th ward was NOT EVACUATED and a lot of people died as a DIRECT RESULT. She had plenty of warning all she had to do was activate the National Guard to do the evacuations .There was hundreds of school buses availabe that could have been used, but she was to drunk,and too damn stupid to see it. Her ignorance was compounded by the absolute NITWIT they had for a mayor. He was recently sentenced to some serious slammer time for his illegal confiscation of firearms going into the disaster.She could barely stand up either,just like the Texas DUMMY.

    Yes, Kathleen Babineaux Blanco, and Schoolbus Nagin, were so incompetent, and screwed it up so badly in New Orleans, the dems only recourse was to blame it all on Bush.
