Obama corruption trial witnesses Blagojevich and Rezko still in prison, Blagojevich appeal drags on, Rezko from Syria remains quiet, One year anniversary of prosecution response

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

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

 

“Regardless of how this plays out, it benefits Obama. If there is no appeal or the appeal is denied, Blagojevich will be sequestered. If the appeal proceeds, it could drag out beyond impacting the 2012 election cycle. The intent is obvious.”…Citizen Wells, July 19, 2011

 

 

Stranger than fiction.

Unbelievable as a novel without an understanding of Chicago pay to play politics and the efforts made to protect Obama.

With our involvement in Syria the past several years, I couldn’t help but wonder if that is why Tony Rezko helped Obama get elected and then kept his mouth shut. Never called as a witness.

The two people who could nail Obama on the witness stand, Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich are still in prison.

Tony Rezko refused to rat on his friend Obama.

Blagojevich, who came under federal investigation by at least late 2003, is still awaiting a decision on his appeal.

It has been one year since the prosecution responded to the appeal filed on JUly 15, 2013.

From Citizen Wells November 13, 2013.

The prosecution of Blagojevich drags on and protects Obama.

From Fox News Illinois November 13, 2013.

“Prosecutors respond to Blagojevich appeal”
“Prosecutors have filed a response to Rod Blagojevich’s corruption conviction appeal. The 169-page government filing submitted late Tuesday urges the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reject the imprisoned former governor’s request for a new trial. Defense lawyers filed the appeal on the Illinois Democrat’s behalf in July. It asks the Chicago-based appellate court to toss his convictions or at least reduce his 14-year prison sentence.”

From Citizen Wells July 16, 2013.

“Blagojevich appeals convictions, stiff sentence”

“Lawyers for Rod Blagojevich filed an appeal Monday challenging the imprisoned former Illinois governor’s corruption conviction and stiff, 14-year prison term.

The lengthy filing with the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago comes more than two years after the Chicago Democrat’s retrial and 16 months after he entered a federal prison in Colorado.

Jurors convicted Blagojevich, 56, of engaging in wide-ranging corruption, including that the two-term governor sought to profit from his power to appoint someone to the U.S. Senate seat that Barack Obama vacated to become president.

The appeal cites a juror who allegedly expressed a bias against Blagojevich who was seated despite the objections of defense attorneys. It also raises longstanding claims that Judge James Zagel barred FBI wiretap evidence that might have aided the defense and argues the judge miscalculated the appropriate prison term.

The appeal was filed about 30 minutes before a midnight deadline to do so.

In June, Blagojevich’s attorneys requested permission to file a longer-than-usual appeal, noting the trial produced 12,000 pages of transcripts. “The issues for appeal are numerous and complicated,” they wrote. The court agreed to let them file the equivalent of about 100 pages, which is what they did.

Blagojevich was convicted on 18 counts over two trials, jurors in the first deadlocking on all but one count. Taking the stand in the second, decisive trial in 2011, Blagojevich insisted his talking about wanting to sell Obama’s seat was just that — talk.

At his sentencing hearing later in 2011, an uncharacteristically deferential Blagojevich asked Zagel for mercy and said he accepted responsibility. He told the court in a hushed voice, “I caused it all.”

Despite those words, Zagel imposed a lengthy prison term, telling Blagojevich he had abused voters’ trust and undermined the democratic process “to do things that were only good for yourself.”

Many observers at the time said Blagojevich’s best hope on appeal wasn’t that a higher court would overturn his convictions but that appellate judges would agree his sentence was too harsh.”

From Citizen Wells October 26, 2014.

“The administration of Rod Blagojevich came under FBI scrutiny beginning in late 2003.

Yet, with all the harm Blagojevich et al were doing to the citizens of Illinois, he was not arrested until just after the 2008 election.

His arrest and the timing of his prosecution were clearly coordinated to have the least impact on Barack Obama.

That protection of Obama continues.

The 2010 election cycle has passed.

The 2012 election cycle has passed.

The 2014 election cycle is about to pass.

We have 6 sessions of the US Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit left before the November 4, 2014 elections.

If the decision comes before the election, I predict that Blagojevich will get a reduced sentence.

If not, it is entirely possible that Obama will pardon Blagojevich.

I believe that they have a deal.

    Hey All,

    I won’t take much space, just my take on Grubber.

    I can’t, for the life of me, understand why ALL of the media isn’t jumping on this.

    First of all, why aren’t the Democrat voters up in arms about Grubber saying that they are too dumb to understand what is best for them? I mean Grubber pretty much says that. “We couldn’t get it passed if we actually told the truth.” “We had to sell it to the public as something it wasn’t”

    Kind of reminds me of a used car salesman telling you that he is selling you a BMW, and when you go to pick it up, it’s a Yugo.

    Second of all, Why aren’t the Democrats who voted for this up in arms? Seems to me that there were only a few people “in the loop” (Pelosi, Reid, Obama, HHS Sec., IRS Department Head). I can’t imagine even Democrats voting for this if they KNEW it was a tax, and not a “mandate” or “fine” or “penalty”.

    Not only that, but some Democrats actually lost their seats in Congress in 2010, because they THOUGHT they were voting on something their “leadership” passed off as something it wasn’t.

    Lastly, it is beyond my comprehension how blacks aren’t up in arms about this and every other law passed by the Democrats which they CLAIMED would “help” them? They are saying to their faces that they are too stupid to know what is best for them. But yet they say nothing.

    They lied to us about Social Security, welfare programs and every other piece of legislation that they claimed WAS a “hand up” and NOT a “hand out”. They lied to farmers who they continue to pay for NOT growing crops on their land or for NOT milking their cows.

    ANY and EVERY Government “subsidy” program is nothing but a SCHEME to make a growing number of citizens AND non citizens DEPENDENT on the Government, so they can tell us what we can and can’t do.

    The same can be said for Federal monies that go to States. There are so many stupid regulations on these monies that the States are at the MERCY of the Federal Government. It is my belief that if States need money for a program they want to implement, then the STATES should raise the revenue.

    My belief is that we should be like 50 seperate Countries who ALLOW the Federal Government to ONLY do what the Constitution allows.

    These people can not blame Conservatives for ANY of this. I for one, have been saying this for as long as I can remember. The only reason the Feds give out money, is to CONTROL those who get the money.

    THAT’s NOT what our Government was formed to do.

    I’m done

    CW What do you think of this?

    The Nov. 30 vote, called by the right-wing Swiss People’s Party (SVP), is aimed at preventing the Swiss National Bank from offloading its gold holdings. It would also require the central bank to bring back gold parked abroad and hold at least 20 percent of its assets in gold. – Reuters

    Today CNBC’s Business News On-Air Editor Rick Santelli surprised King World News when he predicted a stunning victory for the Swiss Gold Initiative. Santelli also brought up Germany’s struggle to get their gold back from the United States in his powerful interview below. – kingworldnews.com

    Apparently, countries are having trouble getting the US to give them back their gold.

    One more thing (I hope),

    The Republicans electing John and Mitch to leadership positions shows me how in cahoots they are with the Democrats.

    They did it behind closed doors.

    I believe the Republicans lost out big time by keeping the leadership that allowed the Democrats to spin everything against the Republicans (meaning the gov shutdown, all of the scandals, war against women, etc.)

    The Republicans had a chance to show voters young and old that THEY are the party of REPRESENTATION of the people.

    But they didn’t, they proved that they are going to keep going toward that cliff, only slower than the Democrats.

  25. WHO KILLED COCK ROBIN?

    Who’ll be the clerk? “I,” said the Lark,

    Who’ll carry the link?” “I,” said the Linnet,
    I’ll fetch it in a minute, I’ll carry the link.

    Who’ll be chief mourner? “I,” said the Dove,
    I mourn for my love, I’ll be chief mourner.
    Who’ll carry the coffin? “I,” said the Kite,
    If it’s not through the night, I’ll carry the coffin.

    Who’ll bear the pall? “We,” said the Wren,
    Both the cock and the hen, we’ll bear the pall.
    Who’ll sing a psalm? “I,” said the Thrush,
    As she sat on a bush, I’ll sing a psalm.

    Who’ll toll the bell? “I,” said the bull,
    Because I can pull, I’ll toll the bell.

    All the birds of the air fell a-sighing and a-sobbing,
    When they heard the bell toll for poor Cock Robin.

    I have reason to believe that any,and all foreign gold that was on deposit in the US has LONG SINCE been stolen by the Chicago gang at the WACKEY HOUSE. If that is actually the case then we will probably have war declared upon us very soon by somebody whos gold has disappeared. Further I would be willing to bet that all US gold,as well as that belonging to other countries has been moved into China,………….. perhaps as collateral for the Hillary negotiated loans. The liberals are pretty damn free with other peoples property.

  29. It was Baines who ripped off the Social Security trusts,for billions, which he spent on two back to back pay raises for Congress. First 17% then shortly thereafter another for 22%. SS funds were moved into the General fund because it allegedly made accounting easier. HAR HAR, and everybody knows that UP is actually DOWN. …..at least that is what the liberals would have us believe………..and it also made it easy for SLIMEY politicians to rape the funds at will.

All you need is a good high power rifle,a shotgun (10 gage) goose gun,and some high quality heavy duty fishing gear and know how,and when to use the tools. Helps to know how to garden also,and how to pressure can foods. Also helps to have carpentry experience,electrical experience,and plumbing experience. Also helps to know how to build an outhouse. Need to have a couple of snowmobiles,a couple of chainsaws with lots of extra chain. Also you will need to know how to sharpen your chains.,and how to drop trees without killing yourself. or you can go up to the shores of the Bering sea, build yourself a high quality dredge,and go out, and suck up offshore gold………and become a millionaire if you are lucky. There are people dredging up 20- 100 ounces a day…..just offshore of Nome.

  34. IB………
    Good questions……..but I don’t think anybody but Gruber is going to stand up, and start arguing the point with anybody……you might just end up collecting MULTIPLE KNUCKLE SANDWICHES,and have your head rotated 180 degrees in reward for so doing.

  35. RMINNC……..
    ………hell the sailors of today think they are on CRUISE ships. They have all of everything, including females who think the same thing. I have serious reservations as to just how many of the crew members even have the intelligence to tie their shoelaces. …..but then if they are doing a lot of studding every 20 minutes,tieing their shoe laces would probably just become an impediment. The Navy has finally began assigning females to our submarine service as well. Total insanity! You can’t have screaming females when a sub skipper is trying to save a submarine from crashing into the bottom of an ocean. When that sort of thing happens it is absolutely essential that every crewman must react INSTANTLY, and do exactly as they have been trained to do. By so doing the probability of complete disaster is radically diminished,and in 9 out of 10 emergency situations the crewman would be able to get the sub to the surface…….that is if the females react correctly and instantly as well. There isn’t time in such emergencies for everybody to wait until somebody finishes his/her sexual adventures.

  36. The real test will come when or if there is wartime battle damage inflicted upon the sitting ducks(aircraft carriers). There is a possibility that if an enemy missile struck a carrier in the right place hundreds of crewmen would be killed right off. If the carriers double hull is breached,everybody aboard that ship is going to have HIS/HER hands full. During WW2 in the Pacific, ships that received multiple kamikazies, had severe battle damage ,and the only thing that in some instances kept them afloat was the crew members who applied BLOOD ,SWEAT,TEARS,and additional injuries to keep the ships afloat. At least TWO of our CVA carriers were saved from sinking by determined crewmen. Then there are times when NO effort on earth is enough…..as was the case with the USS Indianapolis. Three torpedo hits was simply too much. The ship was gone in only a few minutes.

  37. cabbyaz,

    Yes, it has been reported that the Gillard story may be a hoax. But on the other hand the article is quite logical and appears to have some sort of merit. Muslims are on the move and are spreading their religion by whatever means they can.
    We are not allowed to go into most Muslim countries and set up a Christian Church. We would be arrested asked to leave or have our heads cut off. But Muslims have a right to come into our country set up their Mosques and want us to give our allegiance to Allah, Islam, the Quran and Mecca. Christians need to stand up and not let our country be dictated by Muslims and their Sharia laws. Now after two hundred years our leaders are trying to remove the words Christmas and Easter, so we don’t offend our peace loving Muslims.
    If Muslims are offended by these Christian holidays then leave.

  38. hapnHal,
    I couldn’t agree more with you about the dangers of Islam. In fact, the National Cathedral today had a Muslim prayer service – first time ever. On another blog there was a link explaining the significance of this act. To the duped Americans it means reaching out the hand of tolerance, but to the Muslims it means something far more. They believe that such an act FOREVER dedicates that property to Allah. Hard telling when they will act upon that belief. They’re well on their way to invading every American institution, and most people don’t even have a clue, sad to say.

  39. In reference to my above post, take a look at the video here:

    The house of representatives allowed an IMAM to praise Allah on the Floor of the house and give the opening prayer today, November 13th, 2014

    http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/67576?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=facebook

    So, are the Muslims now laying claim to the House of Representatives since Allah was praised from its chambers? We are in serious trouble here.

  40. ” The Legatum Institute finds the United States is just the 10th most prosperous nation in the world.”

  41. CabbyAZ……..
    Even if Gillard didn’t utter the words, I personally stand behind what she ALLEGEDLY said…..100%. If the Muslims come to America they MUST abide by,and live by our laws. If they find this offensive then they should find someplace where they can live by Sharia law,and GO THERE! We don’t need their BULLSHI#. Of course we must remember that a very large percentage of our younger people think MUSLIMS ARE C-O-O-L,(USING THEIR ADJECTIVE).

  42. CW…….
    I guess we know exactly where to lay the blame for the SAFETY and SECURITY issue,….. especially in Chicago,and Detroit. But I would add that it is divided into several domains which center in Chicago,Detroit,New York,and DC,and to an extent Ferguson,MO. I don’t think I need to take that any further. But I also hasten to add that these are the places from where the followers of ISIS of America will originate.

  43. CW……….
    Everybody says America is going to hell in a handbasket. I believe that it is time to tell the truth……it has ALREADY gone to hell in a handbasket. Thanks to the MORONIC low intelligence crowd,the sick twisted deviates,the illegal leader, the stinking a$$ed PUNK youth gangs, and most important of all the GROWING lack of allegiance to America,by a very large percentage of Americans, both young and old.

  44. ……Americans are far too busy….”LETTING THE GOOD TIMES ROLL”,AND HAVING THEIR BLASTS,to take any time off to face reality. FANTASY,FANTASY,FANTASY,EVERY WHERE WE LOOK….. ON TELEVISION, all we see is people who can leap over tall buildings in a single bound,put on a cape and fly through the sky, carry hands from which 20″ metal claws protrude, and it goes on and on, and our low intelligence crowd think it is all REAL. Hollywood has further twisted the already twisted mindset of our youth,which actually began in KINDERGARTEN,and is perpetuated through all levels of school by the TWISTED LIBERAL MENTALITY of the so called teachers. UP is DOWN, LEFT IS RIGHT,AND PINK IS GREEN. In actuality America has ALREADY GONE DOWN THE DRAIN! Whether or not we emerge, is going to largely depend upon a dwindling set of older folks. If they fail then America is LOST.

  45. …….not a day passes during which we keep hearing the SLIMEY STINKING a$$ED goatherders trying to discredit our churches,and take our holidays off the calendar, so that MUSLIM HOLIDAYS can be put on the calendar…….and we see this actually tried in Maryland. So a whole county decided to remove all holidays from the calendar…………so that the BASTARD MUSLIMS can see their own holidays on the calendar….ands guess what our own people rolled over and whined like whipped dogs,from a couple of stinking,slimey goatherders, with an intelligence quotient of ZERO.

  46. ……..I personally think that Gruber’s criticism of the American people was LARGELY correct. Fortunately there are a lot of us who knew better from day one……and it was mostly the OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITHS who became incensed by Gruber’s remarks. Frankly if he keeps it up there might be a lot of people who decide to escalate it to the level of CONFRONTATION with the so called leaders(perpetrators),of ACA, and should that happen they would need to visit a hospital to have the 2300 pages of the ACA surgically removed from their ANUSES…………KEEP IT UP MR, GRUBER YOU ARE DOING FINE!

  47. BYE BYE for now. Have a great day.

  49. SCHOOL ALLOWS STUDENT TO BRING DAGGER TO CLASSES…
    http://www.truthrevolt.org/sites/default/files/styles/content_full_width/public/field/image/articles/sikh.jpg?itok=G2D5ueEo
    A school in Auburn, Washington, a Seattle suburb and not far from the site of Friday’s school shooting, has decided to allow a Sikh student to carry a ceremonial dagger.

    School officials said that there are religious exemptions in state and federal “zero tolerance” policies in allowing the student to carry the weapon.

    “The knife can’t come out. It can’t be shown around. It needs to be underneath their clothing,” Auburn Assistant Superintendent Ryan Foster told a local television station. “That allows them to express their religion without jeopardizing anyone’s feeling of safety. If there are any problems, we will take it to the family, but we don’t expect any.”

    Parents, though, aren’t happy. One said she would quit volunteering at the school; another said “They can’t take that thing into the airport. … Why is a school any different?”

    A local radio host, Dori Monson, railed about the decision on KIRO 97.3 FM. “If you leave a butter knife in your son or daughter’s lunch bag, they get expelled – they get kicked out of school,” Dori said, according to MyNorthwest.com. “But this kid is going to be able to bring a sword into the classroom?”

    Monson also said: “When you expel kids for leaving a folding knife in their purse …, but you let the Sikh kid bring a dagger into the classroom every day, I would say political correctness has gotten completely out of control. Our schools have gone insane.”
    —————————————————————————————————–
    This is a prime example of MY DEFINATION OF “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS”…….for those who have forgotten I shall repeat it again;

    “Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of $hit by the clean end.”

    This is insane. What will be next? Will a Muslim someday insist that it is within his religion to have his camel in the classroom with him? Or maybe his pet goat? Ore perhaps an atheist will all books with the word “create” be burned as heresy? Or some other nonsense dreamed up by a student.

    This silly attitude being forced upon the MAJORITY by the “delusional, illogical minority” must stop and stop now.

    The first question that must be ask is: If the dagger is to remain hidden, what is the purpose for wearing it to begin with? What does the weapon have to do with his religion? If his religion demands he have the weapon on himself, then it is not a religion, but a cult.

    When American students are now getting expelled for wearing tee shirts with the flag of the United States on it because it may offend some Muslim students, …yet school districts are permitting foreign students to bring daggers and whatever they want to school……..it’s damn well time that the school boards be changed….or for the students to walk out of class until they are changed…for their safety.

    And if the judicial system agrees with allowing dangerous weapons be brought to school by foreign students….it’s damn well time to change the judges too….no student should be required to KNOWINGLY be placed in a position of danger to satisfy a foreign religion (if that’s the case).

    ENOUGH is ENOUGH…and this has gone beyond that point.

  50. JONAH……Great post !…thanks

    Three cheers for the Chief…he hit the nail squarely on the head…..he laid it out in a manner that will be hard to counter by the bleeding heart liberals.
