Blagojevich appeal ruling update July 22, 2015, Retrial not likely, Judge James Zagel likely to resentence, Attorney Len Goodman ruling didn’t address many of the issues that were raised in appeal, “This is pure politics”, Wiretaps still hidden

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



Do not forget. Obama controls the US Justice Dept.

From ABC 7 Chicago July 21, 2015.

“An appeals court vacated five convictions and threw out the sentence of former Ill. Gov. Rod Blagojevich on Tuesday afternoon. The rest of Blagojevich’s convictions were affirmed by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.”

“”My advice to the governor is he should fight on,” said Leonard Goodman, Blagojevich appellate attorney.

If Blagojevich chooses to appeal, he must tell the court within the next two weeks. But with five counts thrown out, the former governor will at some point be re-sentenced, and his attorneys will argue that his 14 years be dramatically reduced.

“Most people would look at this and say ‘Wow, if a quarter of his counts were reversed, and so a quarter of his sentence should be taken off’ – but that’s not the way that it works,” said Lauren Kaeseberg, Blagojevich attorney.

Trial Judge James Zagel could reduce the sentence, but guidelines also would permit him to leave it unchanged. The Blagojevich family hopes the former is the case.”

“If the prosecutor elects to drop the vacated charges, the district court could proceed directly to re-sentencing on the remaining 13 convictions only, according to the court document USA v. Rod Blagojevich.”

“Prosecutors have not said if they will retry Blagojevich, who is currently serving time in a Colorado prison. However, experts say it’s unlikely.

“They have two choices. They can retry the counts or just go to sentencing. And when you look at the three prosecutors that led this charge: two of them have already left the office… the last one just got appointed a state judge the other day. So it’s safe to say they’re not going to retry those counts,” former prosecutor Jeff Cramer said.

Resentencing Blagojevich, who has maintained he was engaged in legal, run-of-the-mill politics, will fall to Judge James Zagel. In the appeal, Blagojevich blamed Judge Zagel for a litany or errors.”

“”Time has passed. And Judge Zagel is a fair man. And I would expect that having those counts thrown out will cause the judge to reconsider the sentence,” Goodman said.”

From the Chicago Tribune July 21, 2015.

“Blagojevich’s appellate attorney, Leonard Goodman, said the long-awaited ruling didn’t address many of the issues that were raised in the former governor’s appeal.

“And the ones it does address it gets it wrong,” Goodman said. “So it’s shocking to me that after a year and a half this could be the result of the court’s work.”

Goodman said his advice to Blagojevich will be to continue to fight the case.

“The evidence that would have acquitted him was excluded at trial, and my advice to the governor is that he should fight on,” Goodman said.

Some Rod Blagojevich convictions tossed; wife tells him disappointing news
Goodman said he had not yet spoken to his client so he wasn’t sure about the next course of action, but he said he has options, including trying to get the case heard by the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Exactly the order of the proceedings will be up to the governor,” Goodman said.

Goodman took issue with the court, saying it made serious errors in its decision. He said the court was wrong when it supported the trial judge’s decision to exclude testimony from Blagojevich that he believed his actions were lawful.
“That is not the law. The Supreme Court just ruled this term that guilty knowledge is an element of proof for any criminal offense and this is no exception,” Goodman said. “This is pure politics. What he did was try to raise campaign cash, which is his job as governor.””

The wiretaps remain sealed.


Of the approx. 2 % that were released, we learn.

From Citizen Wells March 12, 2014.

The protection of Obama in the Blagojevich “prosecution” continues.

From the NY Times March 11, 2014.

“Illinois: Wiretaps of Ex-Governor Stay Sealed”

“An appellate court in Chicago ruled Tuesday that transcripts of F.B.I.wiretaps not played at former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s corruption trials should remain sealed, at least for now. The decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit came as it considered Mr. Blagojevich’s appeal, which asks the three-judge appellate panel to throw out his convictions.”

“The wiretaps are among those Judge James B. Zagel of Federal District Court barred the defense from playing to jurors. ”

From Citizen Wells February 3, 2014.

Only about 2 percent of the total wiretap transcripts used as evidence were revealed during the Blagojevich trials.

Blagojevich defense lawyers want all of the wiretap transcripts made transparent.

From the Belleville News-Democrat February 3, 2014.
“Blagojevich transcripts at issue in appeal”

“Prosecutors and attorneys for Rod Blagojevich disagree over unsealing wiretap transcripts that are part of the imprisoned former governor’s appeal of his conviction.

The U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals had said it would open the records Monday.

But citing privacy, prosecutors want them to stay sealed. In a response filed Monday, defense lawyers say transparency should trump other concerns.”

“The defense says a lower court barred jurors from hearing certain wiretaps that could have helped Blagojevich. Transcripts of recordings not played at trial were recently submitted to the appellate court, and are the records in dispute.”

    “More Americans than expected forgo health insurance — and pay Obamacare penalties”

    “As many as 7.5 million U.S. taxpayers reported that they owed a tax penalty for 2014 for not signing up for health insurance, the Internal Revenue Service said. That amounted to roughly $1.5 billion in penalties.

    That was at least 1.5 million more taxpayers than the Obama administration expected to see paying penalties under terms of the Affordable Care Act, according to reported forecasts, and as much as triple what some officials had forecast.”

    The US economy is widely seen as the world’s best performing major economy at the moment. However, so far this year most economic data have actually been somewhere between very soft and lackluster. There is one seeming area of strength, namely the labor market. Not only is this a lagging indicator, but the decline in the unemployment rate masks the fact that a great many jobless people are simply no longer counted as unemployed. They have instead become part of the plunging labor force participation rate statistic.

    The steep fall in truck tonnage is definitely an alarm signal. It indicates that inventories are already too high relative to demand, something that seems to be confirmed by recent industrial production and retail sales data. Given that tonnage has continued to decline since the end of Q1, one can no longer blame the port strikes either. To be sure, the US economy is not yet signaling an imminent recession. At best though it is muddling through at a very subdued pace. It probably won’t take much to push it over the edge.”

  5. …..all of which seems to say that Blago is not looked upon in a very good light by Soetoro. Blago remains a potential squealer. He will at some point either disappear forever, or suffer an accident leaving him dead. Either way I believe that “HIS GOOSE IS COOKED.”

  6. CW……..
    ……….and the Illinois corruption goes clear back to Al Capone’s younger days, and probably even before “UNCLE AL” was on earth. At one point uncle Al had nearly the whole state in his hip pocket, and a very large percentage of small business people were being forced to pay PROTECTION money to him. One business man asked him who are you protecting us from? Al’s reply was ONE WORD……….ME. It was the PROTECTION RACKET which brought him the largest returns. But when Ness was investigating Al Capone it was finally his own personal accountant who turned STATE’S WITNESS and it was the accountant’s records which finally put Al Capone in Alcatraz.

  7. ,,,,,then it wasn’t too many years until Daly Sr, was elected as Chicago mayor. The Daly regime took the protection racket up many notches to a very refined criminal enterprise, and like always the courts needed to be on board. For handsome payoffs they INVENT laws, to protect the enterprise. That is also how the Italian Mafia also worked in New York, and New Jersey. The only difference is that the Mafia payoffs came down even to certain police captains as well. Much of the money came from the GAMBLING SECTOR (playing the horseraces).

  8. ………..AND THAT is exactly what we now have in the wackey house, a upgraded Chicago criminal enterprise……but now nearly all of the Congress is involved, as well as the DOJ, IRS, and conceivably even the upper echelons at the Penta “cube”. Because none of the departments acted they are now accessories to Soetoro’s bullshi#. All persons who cooperated with Soetoro could now be legally charged as accessories to treason……….which if ever successfully prosecuted could earn all of them very lengthy SLAMMER VACATIONS.

    BOB STRAUSS…..thank you my friend for that post.

    Being an old southern boy..born in Tennessee and most likely to die in North Carolina….I understand fully the meaning of the Southern Battle flag….and for those who do not know yet……the Civil War DID NOT start over slavery….it started over the southern states thinking that too damn much power was being amassed by the federal government…and the south thought (rightfully so) that the rights belonging to the states according to the US Constitution were being eroded and taken away by the federal government…… was all about ‘states rights’……

    it’s funny how history has almost made a 360 turn around…look at how powerful; the federal government has gotten today. Even more scary is how powerful the ONE branch of Executive powers have developed….when the Constitution said there would be THREE branches, but EQUAL of government…..

    Now we are at the stage we were before we broke from England and King George……to forge a new nation with our sweat, blood and tears.

    SS trusts were deliberately robbed by Congress + LYNDON JOHNSON, and they helped themselves several times thereafter. Two back to back raises for Congress, and finances for the war in VietNam. Now it is time for the LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC LEFT TO PAY THE MONEY THE STOLE BACK, or face lengthy SLAMMER VACATIONS. The trust funds would be in fine shape today had they not been robbed. The consortium of Insurance companies who originally constructed the trust funds did not anticipate the legal theft of the funds , or the subsequent multiple RAPES of the funds thereafter. Just one more reason to hate the BASTARDS who try to say they are representing the PEOPLE. In truth all they are STILL DOING is INHALING MONEY and DOING NOTHING TO EARN IT. Not even 1 minute is spent representing we the people.

    ………I am wondering if Soetoro bothered to ask for the BILLIONS of dollars worth of US Property which Fidel ILLEGALLY NATIONALISED, returned to its rightful owners. Fidel stole US property and gave it to his friends. He is nothing but a BASTARD, and it is quite possible that I might live long enough to watch him DIE. I will take very special joy in watching him pass. I think there are thousands of Cubans who would probably very happily URINATE on his grave.

    “‘Baby parts’ orders show requests for brains, heads”

    “StemExpress, which is run by Planned Parenthood abortion doctor Ronald Berman, offers its procurement technicians bonuses based on the baby parts they harvest, according to the Center for Medical Progress. Larger bonuses are offered for more valuable body parts, classified as “Category A” parts, while smaller bonuses are given for “Category C” parts. (A list of those parts and their categories is available at the bottom of this report.)

    Deleiden said more compelling video will soon emerge.

    “We also have very compelling eyewitness testimony from people who were actually in real life involved in the harvesting of aborted baby parts at Planned Parenthood clinics,” he said.

    The roll-out of the videos and documents will come over the coming days and weeks. Deleiden said there are good reasons for this to come out in stages.

    “The whole issue of Planned Parenthood’s baby parts sales is such a complex and multi-layered phenomenon that it’s really important, especially in our 24-hour news cycle, that each piece of evidence gets a fair hearing and gets all the attention that is due to it, so that you don’t actually lose the audience as you’re trying to move forward and educate the public about everything that’s going on,” he said.”

    Alarming comments from your link above.

    Odierno also said that continued troop cuts were impacting the Army’s ability to do its job. In 2010, the Army had 570,000 soldiers, Newsmax reported. That’s down to 490,000 today and slated to hit 450,000.

    The outgoing general said that new threats, including Russian adventurism, the collapse of Iraq and the rise of the Islamic State group made that number “a dangerous balancing act right now with capability.”

    It’s no surprise to us that Obama has presided over a dangerous decline in American military power, although it is both refreshing and a bit surprising to hear that confirmed by such a senior military officer as Gen. Odierno.

    It’ll be just one more mess for Obama’s successor to clean up after the 2016 election — assuming we’re able to hold on for that long.

  30. Shake out to GOP will be coming soon. I believe that a number of the alleged candidates will drop out for the “GOOD OF THE PARTY”. There is no longer any individuality left in America, that is EXCEPT FOR TRUMP. Perhaps he won’t be elected,but at least he might have restored a little “THINK FOR YOURSELF” empathy in a lot of Americans. Up until now when a lot of Americans had the ball in their hands they didn’t know what to do with it. Maybe the election game will now get a lot more lively.

  31. Jonah…….
    Don’t look for the Soetoro crowd to pay any attention to what Odeirno has to say. Soetoro only believes in what Soetoro thinks, and says. He thinks he knows more than the senior military officers. Therein lies a portion of the reason why America is now seriously DECLINING. But the largest part of the reason is because it is INTENTIONAL, AND HE IS ONE OF THE ENEMY…….PURE ,AND SIMPLE. IT IS HIS INTENTION TO BRING AMERICA DOWN. THANK YOU …..DNC FOR THE BASTARD.

    “The newest Obamacare fail: penalties of$36,500 per worker”

    “Hey, employers, don’t even think about reimbursing your workers’ health-insurance premiums.

    Beginning this month, the IRS can levy fines amounting to $100 per worker per day or $36,500 per worker per year, with a maximum of $500,000 per firm.

    This Internal Revenue Service penalty is not written into the Obamacare law. The amount is over 12 times the statutory amount in the Affordable Care Act of $3,000 per worker per year. That is what an employer is charged when one of its employees gets subsidized care on one of the health-care exchanges. It’s 18 times the $2,000 penalty for not offering adequate health insurance.

    The $100 fine is applicable not only to large firms, but also those with fewer than 50 workers that are exempt from the $2,000 and $3,000 employer penalties. Firms with one worker are exempt. The penalty for S-corporations will take effect on Jan. 1, 2016. The new rule is broad, sweeping and overly punitive.”

    Watch Sheriff Joe talk to Jake Tapper about the FORGED birth certificate investigation.

  38. Maybe the time is right!…Shortly after the Donald made his remarks about illegals, Kate Steinle was viciously murdered by a criminal illegal. This more or less affirmed Mr. Trump’s statement and blew this whole sanctuary city (and illegals) nonsense wide open.

    It was Trump who pressured O into posting his (forged) b/c…Now, all of a sudden the Sheriff is speaking out on his ongoing investigation.

    Maybe, again, this will reaffirm what Trump was saying years ago and open the discussion to National debate.

    To be honest, I had given up hope on ever hearing anything more on the investigation. Something tells me I was wrong.

    Looks like the Donald has been working behind the scenes…hopefully this whole thing will be blown wide open…

    AND NOW………
    …………….a hell of a lot of nose picking punks babbling into their cell phones, and raving about $15.00 per hour, jumping up and down, screaming expletives, now think they are going to force employers to pay at least $15.00 per hour for UNSKILLED LABOR. Well the truth is all the little creeps will accomplish is push a LOT MORE potential employers out of America. They will still be ranting and raving as the businesses close down, and tell THE PROTESTERS TO GO STRAIGHT TO HELL, after which the fired employees of the companies can also become protesters. In the final analysis such people are actually supporting Soetoro. There is another side to all of this. The more companies LEAVE AMERICA, the faster the country will deteriorate. Between ORGANISED labor and American nose picking punks, our country will be strangled. Unions , and non union morons don’t seem to understand that people are in business to earn a profit. Without profit there is absolutely NO REASON TO STAY IN BUSINESS. Most American manufacturers do not really see the NET PROFIT levels that a hell of a lot of their employees think they earn. In most cases there simply is NOT that much GROSS PROFIT in their business conduct, particularly if they are small, or medium sized companies. When you look at a public company everybody thinks that the company has earned TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS just because they slightly exceeded what was expected per share. After you pay stockholders their rightful dividends, it is what the company gets to keep that counts, and most often it is NOT WHAT MOST PEOPLE THINK IT IS. It is most often a very small profit. Otherwise there is no justification to remain in business AT ALL. Labor unions have NEVER UNDERSTOOD THIS FACT. There are auto workers at GM and Ford who are earning upwards of $35.00 per hour, yet they whine that they BARELY SURVIVE. This is because they are trying to live like KINGS, and can’t control their spending habits. When you purchase a NEW VEHICLE you are actually paying at least $2000.00 into the RETIRED employees HEALTHCARE FUNDS. That is one reason why I don’t buy NEW VEHICLES. I let the people who earn the $35.00 per hour lease their vehicles then I buy it after the lease runs out. I have NEVER bought a lemon, and every vehicle I have bought has performed as it should. All I have ever put into them has been the normal TBA UPKEEP.

    It is beginning to look like Soetoro must have telephoned the Border Patrol HONCHO, advised him not to divulge anything. In short Trump was NOT WELL RECEIVED at the BORDER, and was invited to leave. To compound this Murdoch told Foxnews NOT TO HELP TRUMP. Now we know Murdoch’s color as well.

  44. Trump is the ONLY person that can speak without fear. All the others are politicians who fear retribution (blackmail) by the administration or the media…who was warned before the first election NOT to discuss obama’s roots.

    He is known for his brashness and he speaks totally off the cuff. Even if he isnt your choice for the nominee, he can certainly be the attack dog. When he speaks, people are listening, and the rest are shaking in their boots.

    Did you attend any of the St Louis Tea Party rallies or after parties? Do you know Bill Hennessy or Dana?

  48. Jonah
    We went to 2 Tea Party events both downtown Kiener Plaza and on the riverfront, they were great! We also went to a couple of other events. The best the party we attended at the Tea Party Headquarters on Hampton (which is now gone) when Ed Martin was running for Gov. Met people like Dana, Adam Sharp (Sharp Elbows blog) and Jim Hoft the Gateway Pundit. We also attended a Tea Party event that was held in Holt Summit, MO where we got to hear a lot of great speakers inclucing Herman Cain and Kevin Jackson (Black Sphere blog). The Tea Party in St. Louis hasn’t seemed the same since Dana left, she was a bundle of energy which it has lost.

  49. porterville63139,
    I also was at all of the same events except for Holt Summit. We may have met. Did you know Patsy, the Hampton office manager? I agree about Dana.

  50. AND NOW………
    …… security disability fund to be exhausted in 2016. Very likely that Congress will start taking money from SS trust funds to give to people on disability………..(some of whom have never paid a single penny into Social Security), are able to collect full benefits (at least$1017.00 per month). This potential coming RAPE of the SS trusts is Soetoro’s cure for the money hemmoraging disability fund. Disabilities include thousands of drug heads, and more thousands who are illegally collecting disability. In 2016 they might begin having the ss payroll tax that every was forced to pay in GIVEN to them, in spite of the fact that many have never paid in one penny. This information should DELIGHT everyone……..especially when you learn that your own SS is being cut by $150.00 per month so that the payments to the disability CHEATERS can continue…….AT YOUR EXPENSE! …….ENJOY

  51. porterville63139

    I don’t remember Patsy. I think Hennessy and Dana must have had a falling out, because when she left it wasn’t the same. I was sad when she moved to Texas. We also went to a party after the Glenn Beck event at Maggie O’Brien’s. That was before Beck went off the deep end, he gets on my last nerve now.

    “Blagojevich and the hidden side of political corruption”

    “There was so much noise the other day about Rod Blagojevich getting slapped down by the federal appellate court that I wanted some quiet and some answers.

    Will he appeal to the Supremes? Will the tossing of a few charges he was convicted of shave his 14-year sentence? Did his attempted horse-trading with the Obama White House over a Senate seat doom him? Will those tapes with then-White House chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, ever be heard?

    Political watchers and lawyers were chattering on the radio Wednesday morning. But chatter about political corruption in Illinois is a vocation for the living

    I pulled my car into a quiet spot and listened to them.

    I was in a dead man’s spot, at a lumberyard in the south suburbs, where political insider Chris Kelly killed himself in 2009.”

  57. porterville63139,

    The falling out was due to differences in support for 2012 Republican primary candidates for U.S. Representative. I pray for reconciliation because I believe that a united Tea Party can make huge waves. The 10,000 people at the 2009 Kiener Plaza event was historic! I realized that there were other patriots who also realized that our country was going in the wrong direction. Looking back over the past six years and witnessing the fundamental changes, we were right.
