Rod Blagojevich commutation scenarios, Obama grants to silence him, Trump grants and gets Blagojevich to reveal Obama corruption, Blagojevich remains in prison and talks before silenced, Another mysterious death occurs

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

 

I sincerely hope that Rod Blagojevich does not die of another “mysterious death” (as so many involved with the Clintons and Obama have) before he can reveal the details of Obama’s involvement in Chicago and Illinois corruption.

There is much to tell.

We are left with these questions.

Will Obama grant Blagojevich the commutation he requested?

If not, will Trump grant the commutation with the stipulation that he rat on Obama?

If not, will Blagojevich squeal in prison?

From the AP December 25, 2016.

“One of the last chances for former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to win early release from federal prison rests on a pending decision by the man whose Senate seat Blagojevich was convicted of trying to sell – President Barack Obama.

Blagojevich, 60, is in the fourth year of a 14-year prison term. He recently submitted a request to have his sentence on wide-ranging corruption convictions commuted, the U.S. Department of Justice has confirmed.

Obama has rarely mentioned his fellow Chicago Democrat since Blagojevich’s December 2008 arrest, a month after Obama won the presidency, so it’s hard to gauge if he’d give Blagojevich’s request for a reduced sentence serious thought.

A look at the commutation process and factors that could influence a decision:

WHAT IT IS

A commutation is a reduction of a sentence, while pardons amount to forgiveness of a crime that also removes restrictions on rights to run for office and vote. In federal cases, only presidents have the power to reduce a sentence.

If Obama doesn’t get around to deciding on Blagojevich’s application before his last day in office, he would leave it for someone else with a tie to the ex-governor to decide: President-elect Donald Trump.

Blagojevich was on Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” TV show in 2010. While Trump eventually “fired” Blagojevich as a contestant, he praised Blagojevich for how he fought his criminal case, telling him, “You have a hell of a lot of guts.”

Among the factors Obama can consider is whether Blagojevich’s punishment was disproportionate to the crime. His 14-year prison term was the longest for an Illinois politician for corruption and his lawyers argue it was too severe.”

“One connection between the politicians – an uncomfortable one for Obama – is that he and Blagojevich once shared the same fundraiser, Tony Rezko. Rezko was convicted in June 2008 of fraud, money laundering and bribery.”

Do you believe that Obama was less guilty than Blagojevich?

Remember, only 2 percent of the wiretaps were released during the Blagojevich trials.

And they were damning for Obama.

From Citizen Wells August 2, 2015.

Blagojevich attorney Len Goodman is requesting that the full court review the appeal that was just ruled on by 3 judges.

How does this fit in with the deal that I am certain was struck with Obama et al?

To protect Obama and keep Blagojevich from talking.

I wrote this on July 19, 2011:

“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.”

The prosecution and reporting of Rod Blagojevich has been so watered down that it barely resembles what actually happened.

Why?

To protect Obama.

For those of you blinded by the BS from the mainstream media or not familiar with this case, Blagojevich, not Obama was the presumptive presidential candidate in 2006. Within one year it was Obama.

The Blagojevich Administration came under investigation by late 2003 and Tony Rezko was at the center of much of the corruption.

Stuart Levine carried out the orders of Rezko and Obama was closely tied to both men.

Federal investigators soon knew of Obama’s ties to the corruption but for some reason focused more on Blagojevich and chose to wait until after the 2008 elections to arrest him.

Why?

“this guy is more Tony’d up than I am. …. they got the Chicago media to f…ing make me wear Rezko more. To f…ing dilute it from him.…Rod Blagojevich wiretap November 12, 2008

“BLAGOJEVICH: You know, Axelrod and Obama’s people, you know, clearly turned, you know, got the Chicago media to make Rezko all about me. And hardly about…

HARRIS: Yeah, in other words, they focus their,they focus their attention on you. They couldn’t make it go away so the bes-, next best strategy is deflect it.

BLAGOJEVICH: Right.

HARRIS: This is somewhere where it, it’ll satisfy the, the hunger of the beast, being the media.

BLAGOJEVICH: Right, right.

HARRIS: Yeah, it makes sense. It’s not a stretch. If I’m, if I’m his message advisor, media advisor or whatever, operative, yeah I’m gonna try to feed the beast by giving ‘em something else to eat on.”…Rod Blagojevich wiretap November 12, 2008

Here is some background on the complete story from Citizen Wells March 14, 2011.

“This is the first article in a series about corruption in the US Justice Department and specifically an operation I refer to as “Protecting Obama.” Many events smelled back in 2008, but with the passage of time, the stench is corroborated. Below is the Evidentiary Proffer, a summary and timeline of the bulk of evidence that reveals how Obama was protected in the investigation and prosecution of Tony Rezko, Rod Blagojevich, et al. The time is right to present my case. There are enough well documented events to make a strong case. As I have mentioned recently, I have contacted a prominent congressman about this issue and others and this is a way to get the facts in front of the congressman, his staff and the public. The Proffer will certainly be updated from time to time. I will next present an opening statement and then go on to present the case in more detail. However, anyone who has been paying careful attention or who reads this Proffer, will come to the obvious conclusion presented here  of collusion involving the US Justice Department, Patrick Fitzgerald, Barack Obama, and probably Rod Blagojevich and Tony Rezko.

Before reading the Proffer, here is a recap of how important Rezko is to the prosecution of Blagojevich and ultimately indicting Obama.
It is understandable why the Blagojevich defense team does not want Rezko on the stand. Judge Zagel’s comment about Rezko being a bad witness reeks of conspiracy. Convicted felons of all categories are regularly used as witnesses. Stuart Levine, the key witness in the Rezko trial was not only enmeshed in corruption but was a long time drug user.

Here are the approximate number of times that “Rezko” is mentioned in US Justice Department documents.

Indictment:  87 times.
Criminal complaint:  170 times.
Evidentiary Proffer:  288 times.

Even if a strong argument is made against using Rezko as a witness, and good luck with that argument, Stuart Levine was used extensively as a witness in the Rezko trial, and his name was mentioned approx. 146 times in the Blagojevich Criminal Complaint. And remember, Blagojevich’s name was mentioned at least 30 times on one day of the Rezko trial.

Evidentiary Proffer supporting charge of Collusion in protecting Obama during the course of investigating and prosecuting Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich.

Jan. – Aug. 2003:  Obama was Chairman of the IL Senate Health and Human Service Committee.
Feb. 20, 2003: Senate Bill 1332 “Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act” filed. Reduced members of IL Health Planning and Facilities Board from 15 to 9.

(Rezko Trial March 13, 2008; 3:09 p.m.)

“Almanaseer was appointed to the planning board in 2003 on Rezko’s recommendation. Prosecutors contend he became part of a five-member voting bloc on the board that followed Rezko’s wishes. Almanaseer said board Chairman Thomas Beck tried to steer his voting.

“He said, ‘If you just don’t know which way to vote, vote the way Mr. Levine votes because that’s the way Tony would want the vote to go,” Almanaseer recalled, referring to Stuart Levine.”

Spring 2003 – Nov 2003: (Rezko trial March 11, 2008; 10:58 a.m.)

“Jennifer Thomas, a former aide to Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s patronage chief Joe Cini, continued on the stand Tuesday morning and gave a few more insights into those regular Monday morning meetings she and Cini held in 2003 with Antoin “Tony” Rezko at his office.”

“Thomas said Rezko floated the names of several people to sit on the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board, which the government claims Rezko corrupted with the help of board member Stuart Levine. And Thomas said Rezko at one point made it clear that he wanted to see Levine reappointed to the panel, which was being overhauled by the governor in 2003.”
May 21, 2003: Senate Bill 1332 passed by House and Senate.
June 27, 2003: Blagojevich made this the effective date of Senate Bill 1332.
June 2003: (Rezko trial March 10, 2008; 4:16 p.m.)

“Ziegelmueller asked Hayden about a 2003 e-mail exchange with Lichtenstein, then the governor’s top lawyer, in which Wilhelm made recommendations for the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board.
The name of Barack Obama, the Democratic front-runner for the presidential nomination, also appears in the e-mail as a member of a strategic team reviewing hospital board matters with the governor’s staff when he was a state senator. The hospital board was scheduled to be revamped in the summer of 2003.
Obama was then chairman of the Senate Committee on Health & Human Services.”
June 30, 2003: Obama gets the following donations.

$5000 Ali Ata was appointed as Director at IFA
$6000 Alison Davis gets appointment on Investment Board
$15,000 Dr. Michael Malek gets appointment on Hospital Facility Board
$5000  Abdelhamid Chaib’s wife gets appointment on Employee Security Board
$10,000 Elie Maloof – Rezko used him as one of several strawmen to donate funds to certain politicians.
$1000  Phil Cacciatore (one of Auchi’s Riverside Park Investors) gets seat on Board
$1000  Velma Butler (one of Auchi’s Riverside Park Investors) was recommended for Board
$1000  Martello Pollack (Vegas Crystal Comm) received Iraqi Construction contracts
$1000 Jack Carriglio gets appointed to Board
$500  Anthony Abboud gets appointed to Board
$3000 Michael Winter, who helped Rezko in funneling kickbacks through investment firm
$1000 Talat Othman gets appointed to Board
$1000 David Gustman, $1000 from Gustman’s wife after he is appointed Board Chairman
Late 2003: Earliest documented awareness by FBI and Patrick Fitzgerald of corruption in Blagojevich admin. Pamela Meyer Davis agreed to secretly record conversations involving state health planning board with an FBI wire.
Oct. 29, 2003: Blagojevich interest in presidency (Blagojevich criminal complaint pg 14).

“During the conversation, Cari and ROD BLAGOJEVICH discussed Cari’s fundraising background and work as a national fundraiser. ROD BLAGOJEVICH discussed his interest in running for President of the United States.”
Dec 17, 2003: Former Governor George Ryan indicted.

http://www.justice.gov/usao/iln/indict/2003/warner_ryan.pdf
Dec 31, 2003: (NY Times)

“Mr. Fitzgerald announced that he was prosecuting former Gov. George Ryan, a Republican, in a scandal that had been swirling around long before Mr. Fitzgerald got here and that many people thought would never touch the most powerful politicians in Illinois. But there Mr. Fitzgerald was, a week before Christmas, ticking off the details of a 91-page indictment against Mr. Ryan, seemingly from memory.

That, even Mr. Fitzgerald’s former opponents in the courtroom say, is classic Fitzgerald: dogged, dispassionate and endlessly prepared.”
2004 – 2005: (February 10, 2008 Sun-Times)

“In the media, Obama always made it sound like he rarely saw Rezko, saying they met for breakfast or lunch once or twice a year. However, the FBI mole John Thomas helped investigators “build a record of repeat visits to the old offices of Rezko and former business partner Daniel Mahru’s Rezmar Corp., at 853 N. Elston, by Blagojevich and Obama during 2004 and 2005,“

During his March 14, 2008 interview, the Times told Obama, Thomas is an FBI mole and he “recently told us that he saw you coming and going from Rezko’s office a lot.”

“And three other sources told us that you and Rezko spoke on the phone daily.””
March – May 2004: (Rezko trial exhibits)

FBI chart presented to the jury on April 28, 2008, shows 257 calls from Rezko’s phones to Blagojevich’s chief of staff, Lon Monk, between March 2004 and May 2004 alone.

http://www.justice.gov/usao/iln/hot/us_v_rezko_exhibits/2008_04_28/phone_chart_07.pdf

April 3, 2004: (April 14, 2008; 12:57 p.m. Rezko trial transcripts)

“Stuart Levine, the prosecution’s star witness, said he and Obama were at a party Rezko threw at his Wilmette mansion on April 3, 2004, for Nadhmi Auchi, a controversial Iraqi-born billionaire who Rezko was trying to get to invest in a South Loop real-estate development.

Auchi, now a citizen of the United Kingdom, has faced criminal charges in Europe. He also figured in the revocation of Rezko’s bond early this year after attempting to wire him more than $3 million. Upon learning of that attempt, U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve declared Rezko a flight risk and ordered him held in a federal jail in the Loop.

The Rezko party in 2004 was designed to induce Auchi to pour money into the South Loop investment. Obama’s presence at the party was not previously known. At the time, Obama was fresh off a surprise win in the Illinois Democratic primary for U.S. Senate and was riding a crest of national publicity.”
April 8 – May 21, 2004: (Rezko Trial March 12, 2008; 11:11 a.m.)

“FBI Special Agent Daniel Cain, the primary case agent on the investigation into Levine and Rezko, is on the stand now in testimony that is laying the foundation for entering the wiretaps into evidence.

Cain said the investigation, dubbed Operation Board Games by the federal agents, began in December 2003 and was prompted by information gleaned from an informant whom he did not identify. That witness, he said, took part in meetings with two other individuals who were in contact with Levine by phone at his home.

Cain said Levine had three phone lines in his North Shore home. Federal agents recorded conversations on those lines April 8-May 21, 2004. Those dates span the time when Levine, Rezko and others allegedly were working to rig the hospital board vote on a Mercy Health System hospital proposal for Crystal Lake and other kickback schemes prosecutors claim they were engaged in.”
April 21, 2004: (Rezko Trial March 11, 2008; 5:27 p.m.)

“The former lawyer for a state board that regulates hospital expansions took the stand late in the afternoon and said she told Stuart Levine of her concern after an odd vote on the Mercy Hospital project that included Levine whispering to other board members before the project was approved.

His response was no less troubling, she said.

“He shrugged his shoulders and said, ‘Sometimes you have to be a good soldier,’” said Anne Murphy, the former lawyer for the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board.

Murphy said Levine’s remark followed a vote that saw the plan for a new hospital in Crystal Lake squeak by with the minimum of five votes in favor on the nine-member board.

With eight members present at the April 2004 meeting, Murphy said the vote was stalled with three members voting “yes,” two voting “no” and two abstentions when Chairman Thomas Beck was called to give his vote.

Beck said, “Where’re we at?” Murphy testified. He then went over to whisper with Levine off the record, she said. When that conversation ended, Murphy said, Levine got up and whispered to Imad Almanaseer.

Beck then voted yes, Murphy testified, and Almanaseer changed his vote to “yes,” giving the plan the necessary votes to pass.

“There was an audible, collective gasp across the room,” Murphy recalled of the April 2004 meeting.

Prosecutors contend the five members who voted for the hospital were a Levine-led bloc that Rezko had placed on the board and controlled. The two were charged with arranging to accept a kickback from the builder who was going to build the Mercy project in Crystal Lake.

The entire board was new as of the summer of 2003, Murphy said. She said she had given the new members memos on ethics, including conflicts of interest.”

May 18, 2004: (March 21, 2008; 12:10 p.m. Rezko trial transcripts)

“Another government wiretap has been played with Antoin “Tony” Rezko’s voice on it, and this one could prove damaging to his defense. On the tape, recorded May 18, 2004, Rezko can be heard giving orders to political fixer Stuart Levine about how he wanted to manipulate the vote of one of Levine’s fellow members on the Illinois Health Facilities Planning board, Danalynn Rice.

“11.  In late 2005 or early 2006, Conner performed an appraisal review of the Adams Appraisal (Exhibit C) per the directive of Richard Barth and James Murphy. Conner prepared a written Appraisal Review report (ARR) opining that the Adams Appraisal overvalued the Greenwood lot by a minimum of $ 125,000.00″

“18.  On October 23, 2007, eight days after Conner’s October 15, 2007 email to Schlabach attached as Exhibit J, Mutual Bank terminated Conner’s employment for pretextual reasons.”

Conner later told World Net daily when he initially was fired, that the bank and the Rezkos were engaged in “fraud, bribes or kickbacks, use whatever term you want,” to benefit the Obamas.

Soon after the Blagojevich arrest, Conner was interviewed by investigators from Fitzgerald’s office.

Jan. 16, 2007:  Obama announces his intention to run for president.

“I’ve navigated some fairly difficult territory in my political career and, you know, there are some folks in Springfield who are pretty wily.

And I’ve always been able to operate effectively, but also do so in a way that’s consistent with my values and ethics. I make no claims of perfection, but I think that generally my judgment and my assessments of people have been pretty good and that’s part of how I’ve stayed out of trouble in what can be a pretty hurly burly political environment. ….. I think that the way [voters should view the Rezko relationship] is that I made a mistake in not seeing the potential conflicts of interest or appearances of impropriety. But they should see somebody who was not engaged in any wrongdoing, who did not in any way betray the public trust, who has maintained consistently high ethical standards and who they can trust.”
Feb 10, 2008: (Chicago Sun-Times)

“A former Illinois real estate specialist says FBI agents have questioned him about a Chicago property that had been bought by convicted felon Tony Rezko’s wife and later sold to the couple’s next-door neighbor, Sen. Barack Obama.

The real estate specialist, Kenneth J. Conner, said bank officials replaced an appraisal review he prepared on the property and FBI agents were investigating in late 2007 whether the Rezko-Obama deal was proper.

“Agents and I talked about payoff, bribe, kickback for a long time, though it took them only a short number of minutes of talking with me while looking at the appraisal to acknowledge what they already seemed to know: The Rezko lot was grossly overvalued,” Mr. Conner told The Washington Times Monday.

“Rezko paid the asking price on the same day Obama paid $300,000 less than the asking price to the same seller for his adjacent mansion,” he said. “This begs the question of payoff, bribe, kickback.””

    Germany Considers Fining Facebook $522,000 Per Fake News Item

    By Lukas Mikelionis | 2:49 pm, December 27, 2016

    The government of Germany is considering imposing a legal regime that would allow fining social networks such as Facebook up to 500,000 euros ($522,000) for each day the platform leaves a “fake news” story up without deleting it.

    In the name of combating harms from false news, the German government next year will consider the bill, which has bipartisan support, that will allow both official and private complainants to flag content that is considered “fake news”.

  4. CW,

    I remember this article from 2011; each time I read something about Blago, new info pops up.

    Since you’ve followed this very closely, how do you think this’ll all shake out? Do you think Trump knows and if so, can he connect all the corrupt dots?

  5. ……….in all probability if the Trump administration is able to connect all of the CROOKED DOTS the road would be paved to cleaning out 4 of the largest sanctuary cities POS leaders. Which is NY,CHI, LA, and FRISCO. SEATTLE WA is close behind. California is the most seriously infected and the entire state leadership will all need a really hairy cathartic. Maybe we should commission Clint Eastwood to administer the doses. Might just MAKE HIS DAY.

  6. omigosh this is chilling… the thought. Thanks for keeping this on the front burner all these years.

    Funny, the “owners” of the mansion never stepped foot in it again. pffft.
    Trump will know all in due time.

  7. GW and Papoose,

    This corruption runs so deep that it may take Trump’s entire first term to sort it all out and do what needs to be done.

    There is a swamp other than D.C that needs to be drained; It’s Chicago.

  8. Papoose………
    …………. the level of political correctness across America is at it’s worst in the cities I pointed out. All of the mayors except the mayor of Seattle have PUBLICALLY stated that they intend to support the illegals whether the illegals are known criminals or not. If any of the leaders of these cities are proven to be supporting a KNOWN felon the leader becomes an accessory to any crime committed by the person they are protecting. Hopefully a few of the POS leaders will receive extended SLAMMER vacations so that he/she can think about his/her adventure in crime. This includes the mayors as well.

  9. ……….Blago received a 14 year sentence. While it is possible that Soetoro might pardon him I don’t think it is PROBABLE. If Soetoro decides to pardon Blago it will most likely happen on the very last day of his WACKY HOUSE OCCUPATION. I have a gut feeling that there is going to be a last day flurry of pardons handed out by the GOATHERDER.

  10. AND AFTER TONIGHT……….
    ………. CARRY is back on everybody’s SHI# list. It is clear that he supports Soetoro’s BULLSHI#. Fortunately this moron doesn’t have much longer to go.

  11. AND STILL………….
    …………THERE IS NO DIRECT, OR CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE anywhere that Russia interfered in our elections. Like Putin said “PROVE IT! Soetoro CANNOT PROVE IT, but regardless of that glaring fact he is now going to RETALIATE against a country who he only THINKS interfered. He might live to regret his insane RETALIATION! It could even provoke…….. WAR. It will be Soetoro who struck the first blow……….and the world will know it, and Russia will then be legally justified in taking any defensive action that is deemed appropriate.
    .

  12. GW,

    John Forbes Kerry (unfortunately, a former MA Senator) said that he wants a job when he’s booted out of the SoS position. That would be novel; Lurch hasn’t worked a day in his miserable life. He married well. Twice. He’s nothing but a botox-laced gigolo.

    I think that driving an ice cream truck would be the perfect fit for him, but he might have trouble making change for the kiddies. That’s hard! ‘Geeze, the ice cream is $1.20 and the kid gave me $2.00. Lovey, how much change do I give this fine young Democrat?’ His ‘wife’ the ketchup queen (and premier old hag) would probably know.

    Hey, maybe he could follow in his successor, Chief Spreading Bull’s footsteps and teach one class at Haavaad to the tune of $350K per year. Would anyone even register for a class taught by him?

    I just don’t want him back here further contaminating an already rotten state…

    *****************

    SueK,
    Maybe they will do a remake of the Munsters, then there will be a job for Kerry, as Herman.

  14. Interested Bystander

    Kerry would be a great carnival barker. He’s been feeding us a line of BS for a long time.

  15. SueK.
    Blago will do anything to get out.
    I am still amazed at how well the Goebbels/”1984″ big lie about Blago’s main crime being trying to sell the senate seat has worked.
    Most have been brainwashed into believing that.
    Much much more to the story that involves Obama.
    I doubt if Trump is aware.
    The less Obama says the better for him.
    People get murdered in prison all the time.
    Obama almost has to make a deal (or keep an already made deal).

  16. “Narrative Breaks – Continuing Jobless Claims Soar Most Since 2009 Following Trump’s Election

    This does not fit with the narrative. Continuing Jobless Claims are up over 6% in the weeks following Donald Trump’s election – the biggest surge since May 2009.”

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-29/narrative-breaks-continuing-jobless-claims-soar-most-2009-following-trumps-election

    The answer is simple.
    The media will begin reporting the truth about jobs data now. No longer covering for Obama as much as attacking Trump.

  17. …….Mr.Carry puts me in mind of a SHIP’S WHISTLE…………when FOG sets in it BLOWS EVERY MINUTE……….he has proven that he is the CHAMPION FOGHORN. The only difference between CARRY and a SHIP’S WHISTLE is the fact that the ship’s whistle is operated from live steam…………sadly Carry’s whistle is operated with high volume, high pressure BULLSHI#. I wouldn’t be surprised if he decorated himself for the UN rave, and rant. He deserves Mzzzzzzzzzzzz.Pickle Face.

  18. ……….BUT FIRST OF ALL……..
    ………..Trump was NOT POTUS IN 2009.

  19. …………nor was he potus in 2010,2011,2012, 2013,2014,2015, 2016. When you consider the length of the interim period it becomes conceivable that if Soetoro was going to be effective as a POTUS it would have shown up long before 2016. But when you take into consideration the business conditions that the DEMOCRATIC administration has created it is doubtful that we will ever recover 100% of the lost jobs. Donald Trump does not have a MAGIC WAND which produces instant jobs out of thin air…………but he DOES POSSESS the ability to produce NEW BUSINESS which in turn produces jobs………..but this is NOT GOING TO HAPPEN OVERNIGHT. People need to acknowledge this fact early on. What has been a few decades in the making will not be turned completely around in 4 years.
    Largely it has been the ever increasing government intrusion into PRIVATE business over several decades, which has culminated in the departure of thousands of businesses from American soil. This was compounded by the demands of organized labor, which became the straw which broke the camel’s back……… ADIOS AMERICA!
    Donald Trump might be able to bring some American business back to our shores……..but without a doubt a moderate percentage will NEVER RETURN………..they have established their businesses offshore, and will be reluctant to return to what they perceive as a potential WASTE OF TIME AND RESOURCES. It may take upwards of at least one successful term for Trump to convince American business people to return to their native soil…………and then it MIGHT happen ONLY if there are INKED guarantees of fixed tax bases for at least 20 years, inked guarantees that government departments will stay out of their business conduct, and guarantees that they will be the people who will set the wages they pay, instead of the Federal government.
    Again……….I have my doubts that ALL of the businesses which departed our shores will return. Most have received guarantees from the governments of the countries in which they have re established their businesses. Even the threat of heavy tariffs upon their products will probably not cause them to return………..instead they will rely upon the world marketplace, and bypass America.
    While I expect Trump to improve us business conditions, I do not expect him to do the impossible. There is a point where Americans must once again start doing for themselves instead of looking for government handouts, and FREE LIVINGS. Those who think that the government should support them for life should consider moving to a country where that sort of government exists………..one of which is Venezuela. They AIN’T doin so well right now……….they are teetering on the brink of a food famine. Most families in Venezuela are surviving on the equivalent of $10.00 per week. Many don’t even get that much. Classic example of a radical communist government. This is something which even Chairman Mao discovered before he died, and he stated that China had been on a road to NOWHERE for 70 years………and change was badly needed.

  20. Since we are re-hashing past discrepancies in O’s political history, I thought it would be prudent to add another situation to the list.

    Obama’s most recent stab-in-the-back to the democratic and sovereign State of Israel is nothing more than proof of his despise of Israel and his pro Palestinian tendencies. This is his final slap (of which there have been many) to Benjamin Netanyahu.

    If the MSM had pursued the release of the Khalidi tapes, perhaps the liberal Jews of this country would have thought twice before voting for Obama. Obama sought out many prominent pro palistinian and Jew hating people (Rashid Khalidi, Louis Farrakhan and Reverend Wright to name a few) on his way up the Chicago political ladder.

    The LA times refused to release the tapes on conditional obligations to the source. They only released short, selected bits of a transcript. My, my, my!
    I find it it alarming that the MSM thinks nothing of releasing tapes and videos that could hurt a conservative politician, but suddenly find some kind of moral obligation NOT to release something that could harm a liberal progressive.

    Those of us that did our due diligence are not surprised by Obama’s final disgraceful snub to Israel. I hope those in the media that ignored the truth can live with their decisions.

    Obama has funded Iran with our money who in turn funds Hamas and Hezbollah and…He has literally condemned the State of Israel. Those that could not see this disaster coming are the true uninformed voters.

    If I may quote Mrs. Clinton, “Shame on you, Barack Obama!”

  21. BREAKING: Turkey Linked Assassination Of Russian Ambassador To Clinton Foundation

    December 29, 2016

    usapoliticsnow admin 2016 Election, US News, World News

    December 19, 2016 MAY go down as the day that a war has begun. Now, you might ask yourselves, what happened on this date?

    Well, a Russian ambassador was killed in Turkey by a young 22-year old police officer called Mevlut Mert Altintas. Now, this might not be so strange to you… sadly these things happen. What is interesting here is that this man, Mevlut Mert Altintas, is connected to the Clinton Foundation. Yes, you read right, the Clinton Foundation.

    So one might wonder, how is this man connected to the Clinton Foundation? Well, here are the details:

    Turkish government intelligence has determined that 22-year-old Mevlut Mert Altintas, the police officer who recently assassinated Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov while the ambassador was giving a speech to open an art gallery in Ankara, was a member of the Gulen organization.

    The same group that staged an unsuccessful coup in Turkey in July. Reports have surfaced that the Clinton Foundation was engaged in a pay-to-play scheme to obtain Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s support for the Obama administration decision to give asylum to Fetullah Gulen, a Turkish Muslim imam the Erdogan government holds responsible for the attempted coup July 15. Gulen now lives in Saylorsborg, Pennsylvania.

    Sources close to the Turkish government have explained that assassin Mert Altintas, born in 1994, joined the police in Turkey in 2012 and graduated in 2014, when Gulen’s organization, known in Turkey as the Fetullah Terrorist Organization, or FETO, was at the peak of its power in Turkey. Turkish intelligence and police units investigating the assassination of Ambassador Karlov have now established that Mevlut Mert Altintas had deep ties with Gulen’s group.

    One of the biggest donors is Gulen lieutenant Gokhan Ozkok, who is listed on the Turkish Cultural Center’s website as a member of the Clinton Global Initiative. Ozkok gave between $500,001 and $1 million to the Clinton Foundation in 2015.

    Evidence for that conclusion includes several books found at Altintas’ residence authored by Gulen, as well as discovering that Altintas’ sister had shared on Internet social media various FETO-supporting posts urging violent terrorist attacks in Turkey and elsewhere. Altintas was living in an apartment in Ankara that police have established is owned by another fugitive FETO member, Abdullah Bozkurt, the Ankara representative of the FETO group’s English-language propaganda newspaper “Today’s Zaman,” translated as “Today’s Time,” published daily in Turkey.

    Here are some other details too:

    Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim warned in July there “could even be a questioning of our friendship” if the U.S. doesn’t hand over Gulen. Also, military intelligence sources in Turkey continue to report that Obama administration officials have consistently “looked the other way” regarding terrorism in Turkey, refusing to budge on Turkey’s requests to extradite Gulen.

    So there you have it folks. This is how Hillary wants to destroy our and Trump’s relationship with Russia, by starting a war. I say as soon as Trump sets foot in the Oval office, he needs to indict this woman immediately. She deserves to be in prison.

    SHARE this article everywhere and expose Hillary’s plan to America and the world. Everyone need to see this immediately.

    Thank you for reading.

  22. Honorfirst…………
    ………….I would hasten to add that this last bit of insanity which is now VERY CLEARLY COMING FROM A RADICAL MUSLIM whose presence in the wacky house has been well known for 8 years, yet not one solitary person was able to break through the defensive line of CRIMINALLY ORIENTED FEDERAL JUDGES. They refused to honor BONA FIDA law suits by using the so called “STANDING” BULLSHI#. FOR CLARITY- ANY US CITIZEN HAS STANDING FOR CIVIL COMPLAINTS AGAINST THE SO CALLED US GOVERNMENT, AND GUARANTEED BY THE US CONSTITUTION, IN ADDITION THE CITIZEN HAS A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO BE HEARD (ADJUDICATED). THE STANDING BULLSHI# WAS ORIGINATED BY THE OVEREDUCATED WORD TWISTERS WHO BELIEVE THAT CONSTITUTIONAL LAW IS CASE LAW.(INTERPRETATION) THEY ARE FULL OF SHI#. NOBODY HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT STANDING UNTIL AFTER THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OFFICE IN 2008.
    AND NOW THE OBVIOUSLY INSANE LEADER ALONG WITH EQUALLY INSANE COHORTS HAVE MANFACTURED A SO CALLED REASON TO ATTACK RUSSIA IN A HALF WITTED ATTEMPT TO PROVOKE A MILITARY RESPONSE FROM RUSSIA. HOPEFULLY PUTIN WILL SEE THROUGH IT AND SIDE STEP THE ACTION. IN REALITY THIS ENTIRE MATTER IS AN IDIOTIC ATTEMPT TO COVER UP ALL OF THE CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR DONE OR ATTEMPTED SINCE 2008. THE CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR HAS ENCOMPASSED BOTH PARTIES, AND NOW BOTH PARTIES WILL SOON PAY THE FIDDLER, PARTICULARLY IF PUTIN PLAYS THE RIGHT CARDS. THE IDIOT IN OFFICE HAS GIVEN PUTIN 4 ACES…………WITH WHICH HE CAN CRUSH THE BASTARD LIKE A LITTLE INSECT PEST, ALONG WITH ALL OF HIS SLIMEY LITTLE INSECT ACCOMPLICES. I BELIEVE THAT PUTIN HAS THE DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE THAT THE US WAS EQUIPPING FORCES AGAINST ASSAD. I BELIEVE THAT THERE WILL ULTIMATELY BE AN INTERNATIONAL ARREST WARRANT ISSUED FOR THE ARREST OF SOETORO SOON AFTER HE IS OUT OF OFFICE. HE WILL ULTIMATELY ANSWER FOR INTERNATIONAL WAR CRIMES. I EXPECTED THIS TO HAPPEN LONG AGO, BUT SOMEHOW HE HAS BEEN ABLE TO SIDESTEP SUCH ISSUES……….BUT AFTER JAN 20 HE IS PRONE TO ARREST ON AN INTERNATIONAL WARRANT. I FEEL NO PITY FOR SOETORO!

  23. AND TRUMP WILL ………..
    ……….MEET WITH INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY IN AN EFFORT TO GAIN THE TRUTH………….BUT WILL THE SO CALLED INTELLIGENCE CLUB EVEN TELL HIM THE TRUTH…………I THINK NOT………..THIS IS WHY THE ENTIRE INTELLIGENCE CLUB SHOULD BE REPLACED. I BELIEVE THAT WHEN TRUMP ARRIVES THEY WILL LIE TO HIM.

  24. ……..AT THE VERY LEAST……..TRUMP NEEDS TO INSTALL SOMEBODY ABOVE THE CIA TO OVERSEE THEM AND FIRE BASTARDS WHO TRY TO SUBVERT, OR TWIST INTELLIGENCE. I BELIEVE THERE WILL BE MASSIVE LIES TOLD FOR A LONG TIME TO COME.

  25. ……….earlier this evening I visited some websites that I don’t visit much anymore………..and I went to the comments on one, and read some of the most IDIOTIC, and otherwise LUNATIC raving, by obvious OBOTS that I have ever read………….TOTAL AND ABSOLUTE LUNACY! If this is a sample of the average obot reasoning it is easy to see why they lost the election. I MEAN READING THE ALLEGED COMMENTS WAS LIKE READING SOMETHING COMPOSED BY THE WORLD’S MOST TWISTED HALFWITS. I had no idea that it was possible for a human being to even think in such twisted terms of reasoning. I left the website very quickly…………as I get stressed out reading such insanity. NOT GOOD FOR MY BLOOD PRESSURE! It does however bear out what I have been thinking about the general OBOT population, and confirms everything else that I have either heard, or read.

  26. ………I PRAY TO GOD…….
    ……….that what I read earlier tonight is not the sum total intelligence level of our younger people. If this is in fact a display of their average IQ then America was, and still is in serious danger.

  27. AND FIRST………
    ……….Soetoro PUBLICALLY STATES “there IS NO EVIDENCE that Russian attempts to hack affected the election”………….then he turns around and has a hissy fit, and blames the Russians for the loss of the election then expels 35 Russian diplomats. This clearly demonstrates the level of his MENTAL INCOMPETENCE. Fortunately Putin has seen through it all, and has IGNORED Soetoro. Being IGNORED will strike at Soetoro’s mind BEYOND IMAGINATION because he is homosexual, INSANE, and a SOCIOPATH. Ignoring such a person will ANGER,HURT, AND EMBARRASS HIM more than anything else that Russia, or Trump could do. He, and Michael will ultimately leave the WACKY HOUSE with their tails between their legs like the MONGRELS that they are. In addition I fully expect WAR CRIMES charges soon thereafter to be filed against him, and possibly Hillary Clinton as well by at least one foreign government for aiding, and arming perpetrators of criminal insurgency. The arrest of both could result. The Assad government might soon file a complaint against both Clinton, and Soetoro. Anyone who thinks that it is impossible to charge them with anything had better rethink it, because they can both be prosecuted if there is enough evidence of their involvement. In addition there is growing evidence that America has been governed by a CRIMINAL CARTEL for over 30 years. This is a cartel comprised of ELITES with very deep pockets. You only need to ask Rudy Guiliani about such cartels. He chased the Italian MAFIA back to Italy. Anyone who thinks that the CRIMINAL cartel that is presently in control of America doesn’t exist had better think again. It screams to be broken up and the perpetrators IMPRISONED. Soetoro, Mzzzzzzzzzzzz. Piggy, and Kermit is a great BEGINNING, but must be followed by the next higher paygrades until all have been SHUT DOWN.

  28. How much more BS can we take. I’ve had it….Think I’m going to call Obama on his cell phone and give him a piece of my mind……………. 1-800-a$$-hole
    ———————————————————————————–
    Putin takes the high road: Russian president says he
    WON’T expel US diplomats

    Putin takes the high road: Russian president says he WON’T expel US diplomats in revenge for hacking sanctions – but his aides blast Obama administration as ‘angry and shallow-brained losers’ Russia’s foreign minister had been calling for 35 US diplomats to be banished Came after White House’s decision to expel 35 Russian diplomats from Moscow Putin stepped in to say he would not engage in tit-for-tat politics with the US Obama’s decision comes in reaction to hacking claims during the US elections Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he will not expel 35 US diplomats in revenge for hacking sanctions.

    and more……

    CNN FAKE NEWS
    CNN: Russia Retaliates By Closing American School, Vacation Home In Moscow(Fake News)
    CNN is reporting that Russian authorities have ordered the closing of the Anglo-American School of Moscow after the United States imposed major new sanctions on December 29 over Moscow’s meddling in the U.S. election.

  29. The diplomats ain’t leaving. Talk about the spit in the face heard ’round the world :).

  30. rogue actors have been hacking into our businesses and government agencies the entire time o has been prez. and he did absolutely nothing.

    Now, when his party and his legacy are compromised he takes this bs action.

    He cares nothing about the country…it is always about HIM.
    Next month can’t come soon enough!

  31. ……….PERHAPS……..
    …………..Putin will be awarded another HERO BADGE for ignoring Soetoro, and the expulsion of the 35 Russian diplomats………..it will all probably be treated as a three week vacation for all 35. After January 20 they will all be back at their desks……..well rested, and ready to work. Putin done exactly what I thought he would do……….NOTHING except IGNORE THE BASTARD. If Soetoro, or Michael travels to any foreign country after they vacate the wacky house they will be inviting their own arrest……….or worse. A lot of people died as a result of the weapons he and Hillary supplied. They could both be charged with war crimes. I believe that there is already a preponderance of evidence showing that they aided, and abetted a criminal insurgency.

  32. hapnHal…………
    ………..in reality unless you can catch a hacker IN THE ACT, it is virtually impossible to determine the origin of the hacking. All tracking ,and identity code generation is compromised in the hacking systems. If the hacking is carried out using American manufactured equipment, which has been neutralized there is NO WAY to track the origin. end of story. Even if the origin was determined the information that was hacked was sent to ANOTHER entity WHO MADE IT PUBLIC INFORMATION. In reality it was NOT THE RUSSIANS who exposed the CORRUPTED US GOVERNMENT, and the criminal perpetrators. Julian Assange done America a FAVOR by publishing most of which he was able to obtain. BTW he has said PUBLICALLY several times that his source WAS NOT THE RUSSIANS. I would be more suspicious of the NSA contractor who now resides in Russia. When I consider likelihood, along with ability I would be looking at him first…………and it is likely that he has TRAINED others to hack as well. In addition he would clearly have the motivation.

  33. ………I PERSONALLY THINK………..
    ………..that Snowden was behind most of the hacking, but it is more than probable that he trained others to hack as well, and it was the information which THEY HACKED which was passed on to Julian Assange.

  34. SINCE THE INSANE…………
    …………liberal entertainers are refusing to perform at Trump’s inaugural it would be appropriate for Trump’s supporters to refuse to pay to see those entertainers………..whether it is a movie, a Broadway play, or television show. If a TV show simply turn to another channel. In addition to this bullshi# a Rap singer is now sueing ALL of the major retailers of his records for allegedly displaying his name without permission. Well Mr rapper what the hell do you think having the record with your name on it laying on the counter in the store is? Now without a doubt your products will be PERMANENTLY removed from all of the retailers shelves. Your IDIOTIC LAWSUIT will probably end in your BANKRUPTCY, because you cannot possibly win such a lawsuit. All you have done is tell the world how damn stupid you are…………… and have turned the retailers against you….but then you are a RAPPER so I guess your sales haven’t amounted to very much to begin with……so now you think you can extort a penalty against the retailers because your SHI# didn’t sell….,….WON’T HAPPEN NITWIT! It is easy to see what your intent is, and even if your suit makes it to a hearing, any judge would either throw it out of his courtroom, or summarily dismiss it. If your name ,or your production company’s name appears anywhere on the product you are legally shot down before you even get airborne with such a lawsuit. If the retailer used your name in advertising it was for the purpose of HELPING TO sell your idiotic records. Now you want to sue the retailers………..TOTAL HORSESHI# SADIE! You are obviously DEMOCRATIC!

  35. oldsailor, I agree.
    Boycott the bastards.

  36. SueK,
    I saw this and wanted to share.

    BRING IT ON: Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren Flirts With Idea Of 2020 Run For President

    Republicans should hope Elizabeth Warren runs for president in 2020. The Democrat media complex has been exposed.

    The press will not be able to protect her.

    Every lie she has ever told, every hypocritical scheme she has ever been involved with will be fair game.

    There’s a growing research dossier on Warren right here.

    In the mean time, she’s free to make the left think she’s a viable candidate.

    The Hill reports:

    Warren stirs talk of 2020 White House run

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren is set to bolster her Senate resume next year, sparking early talk about a 2020 presidential bid.

    The Massachusetts Democrat will join the Armed Services Committee in 2017, branching out beyond the tough-on-Wall Street message that made her a liberal favorite.

    Warren has tied the decision to her family — her three brothers served in the military — and Massachusetts ranks in the top 10 states on military spending, according to a Pentagon report.

    But the announcement spawned a wave of a media speculation that Warren is filling portfolio gaps to position herself for a 2020 presidential run.

    MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell called the step a “very important move that could be a first step in a presidential campaign.”

    The Washington Post’s Daily 202 — a morning rundown aimed at decisionmakers inside Washington — speculated that Warren and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who is separately joining the Foreign Relations Committee, “very clearly want to seek the presidency for themselves in 2020.”

    Go ahead, Democrats. Run Elizabeth Warren in 2020.

    She’ll be exposed for the liar and fraud she is.

    Count on it.

  39. What Obama is doing now may be his MOST heinous and nefarious act yet…

    By Allen West 9:28am December 30, 2016

    What we’re witnessing in America is beyond belief, as if Roman Emperor Nero has been reincarnated in President Barack Hussein Obama. In his dwindling days, Nero began to demonstrate certain instability, and as story tells it, he famously fiddled while Rome burned. Some have written that Nero ordered the fires to be started himself. And in these final days, 21 days, 4 hours, 30 minutes and 50 seconds of the Obama administration, we find the disturbing and disconcerting actions of one who is starting fires while he plays golf.

    There’s no logical explanation to the deeds being done by Obama in these final days. Last week’s undermining and betrayal of Israel cannot be explained away by any 90-minute diatribe by John Kerry. We’ve shared the history of the word “Palestine” on these pages. And to have Obama craft language, abstain from a vote, and allow such an anti-Israel resolution to pass through the U.N. Security Council is inexplicable, other than seeking to usher in the demise of a recognized nation-state.

    The recent sanctions and expulsions of Russian officials from America is unconscionable. After all the previous provocations of Russia against the United States, why now, with three weeks before the inauguration of a new presidential administration, does this happen?

    What Obama is doing now may be his MOST heinous and nefarious act yet…
    The most TERRIFYING part of this incident wasn’t caught on camera…
    UNBELIEVABLE: Yes, he actually SAID it…

    Obama will be able to walk away from this action which will fall squarely into the lap of the incoming Donald Trump administration. And we must ask ourselves, if Hillary Clinton had won on November 8th, would any of this be happening? After all, it was Obama who sought to ridicule, chastise and embarrass one Mitt Romney in 2012 when he stated Russia was our greatest geo-political foe. It was Obama who confided that he would have more “flexibility” after his reelection. And in his final press conference before whisking off to another vacation in Hawaii, Obama told us he admonished Vladimir Putin by telling him to “cut it out” — yeah, that’s REALLY gonna spook a former KGB Colonel and judo black belt.

    So now, we’re supposed to believe Obama is all tough? Nah, this is just another instance of a fire being started by our present-day little Nero because he’s angry at being rejected. This is Obama being the petulant narcissist that recently told us he would have beaten Donald Trump if he ran for a third presidential term.

    And I’ve been getting some inside baseball intelligence about the lack of cooperation in the Obama administration with the Trump landing teams. As stated, if Obama can’t have his way, he’ll be damned and will, as the Talking Heads sang it, be “burning down the house.”

    And we have another example of how Obama is burning down our nation, leaving us unguarded.

    As reported by Defense News, “The Dwight D. Eisenhower carrier strike group chopped out of the European theater of operations Dec. 26 and headed home to Norfolk after months of operating in the Arabian Gulf and the Mediterranean, where the strike jets of Carrier Air Wing 3 flew hundreds of missions against Islamic State group targets in Syria and Iraq.

    The homecoming is set for Dec. 30 — two days shy of the Navy’s stated goal of bringing the group home in seven months. US carrier groups regularly relieve each other in theater, often handing off duties within sight of the other in the Arabian Gulf or Arabian Sea.

    But this time, no carrier is in the Eisenhower’s wake. The relief ship, the carrier George H. W. Bush, has yet to leave Norfolk, and it’s unlikely to do so before the Jan. 20 presidential inauguration of Donald Trump, according to a Navy source.

    The gap could last as long as two months, sources said, between the time the Eisenhower left the combat theater and the Bush arrives. And that gap comes at a particularly inopportune time. Numerous media reports indicate intelligence organizations and analysts are on the lookout for provocative actions by potential antagonists — in particular Russia, China, North Korea, Iran or ISIS.

    Terror alerts, according to media reports, are high in many regions, including Europe, the Middle East and North America, due to a confluence of factors — the new year, ISIS’ diminishing power in the face of counterattacks in Iraq and Syria, and a natural tendency to test a new administration. Other Central Command carrier gaps have taken place in the past, usually when a strike group is needed elsewhere or maintenance issues at home have forced ships to deploy late. The Pentagon plans for such events, often dispatching expeditionary US Air Force units to the region to pick up the slack — something that seems to have taken place now. The newest gap is not a surprise, and actually has been months in the making — arguably well over a year.”

    We reported here about the previous gap in carrier strike group coverage in the Middle East. During that period, the United States went to France to provide coverage — what does that say about our readiness? And what message does that send to our enemies…and sadly to our allies?

    If you haven’t been paying attention, when was the last time you heard about Mosul? Remember that little supposed “October surprise” that would be a gift to Hillary Clinton from Barack Obama? Well, you can just imagine that if things were going well with the collapse of ISIS in Mosul, we’d be hearing about it…Obama would certainly be doing a victory dance and spiking the ball in the end zone. Nope, nada, and we now know we have no carrier strikes going on in the Middle East — twice in the last two years for Obama.

    Hey, but remember, Osama bin Laden is dead — as if that really means anything at this moment — the global Islamic jihad has grown exponentially.

    I said it before, and let me reiterate it again. All the Clintons did was steal the White House china upon departure, knowing their chosen successor, Al Gore, had lost. The Obamas are doing something far more heinous and nefarious: they are destroying our country before departing. And Obama will remain in DC, for what? I suppose he wants to ensure, like any good arsonist, that he can watch the fire burn. I wonder if Obama can play the violin?

  40. Putin Bypasses Obama and Sends Message to the American People…

    Posted By: RLGrimes

    Today the Russian government issued an official statement from President Vladimir Putin. In the message to the American people, Mr. Putin, said “The people of Russian and the government were tired of the lies of Barack Obama with regards to supposed interference of Russia in the recent Presidential elections.” Mr. Putin stated again that the Russian government took no role, either active or supportive in any attempt to undermine U.S. elections and challenged Obama to produce any evidence to the contrary. More.

  41. Leaked Proof of Obama’s Alliance with Muslim Countries!

    James shale December 28, 2016

    After angering Israel and Jewish Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this morning one of Barack Obama’s most closely guarded secrets has been leaked: proof of Obama’s alliance with Muslim countries.

    This evidence appears to have been accidentally leaked by the Egyptians, perhaps through Israeli subterfuge, in the form of the minutes of a meeting between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Palestinian officials.

    “The Israeli TV news show Mabat broadcasted a report that shows Egyptian media Tuesday evening publishing evidence that the U.N. Security Council resolution against Israel was cooked up in a meeting between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and two top Palestinian Authority officials.”

    Egyptian media published the private minutes of the meeting between the Obama administration and Palestinian officials over the Christmas holiday.

    In that meeting, Kerry and Rice presented to the Muslim coalition that the Obama administration was ready to cooperate with a Palestinian action at the Security Council. Kerry then reportedly suggested the Palestinians could bring up ideas for a forced permanent solution to the conflict and discuss them with the Saudi government with American support before Trump got into office.

    The report continued:

    “The Egyptians apparently didn’t want to wait and published the secret protocol of the meeting Tuesday evening local time. The Egyptians most likely published the protocol to express their frustration with the attitudes of the Obama administration in orchestrating the move behind the back of Egyptian President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi.”

    As if these betrayals weren’t enough, the minutes of the meeting continued to reveal additional Obama administration betrayals of the will of the American people:

    “The Trump administration is dangerous,” Rice reportedly said, adding that “Trump’s opinions about Israel and the Palestinians would be different from all previous administrations. They also urged the PA officials not to resume suicide attacks against Israel because that would “harm the Palestinian cause. Kerry and Rice also gave compliments to PA leader Mahmoud Abbas, who they said had always done what the Obama administration had asked from him.”

    To summarize, the leaked minutes reveal the Obama administration:

    Knows their Muslim allies are behind Middle Eastern terror but asked them to slow down, not because of the loss of life, but because it would hurt “their” cause.
    The Obama administration have been controlling the Palestinian cause and actions for the last 8 years which have included suicide bombings, terror attacks, and act of international war.
    They see Trump as dangerous as he will oppose “their” cause.

    This revelation is the latest and most damning evidence of the Obama alliance with his Muslim allies to advance a pro-Islam, anti-Israel, anti-American agenda for the last eight years.

    Bob, thanks for this. Bring it!

    In addition to being a liar and a fraud, she’s one of the most hated Senators to ever occupy the seat.

    She practiced law in MA for close to 10 years, without a license.

    She took credit for her one and only publication ‘Pow Wow Chow,’ which was proven by Howie Carr, WRKO, to have been plagiarized.

    She refused to meet with a group of real Native Americans before the election to explain to them why she was claiming to be one of them. Representatives from Cherokee Nation waited for her for a week; she never showed.

    She checked the box as a ‘person of color’ throughout her life however, didn’t register as such on the List of Minority Senators.

    As I mentioned in a previous post, Curt Schilling is seriously thinking about challenging her for her Senate seat. If Schilling beats her (and I know he can) there will be no 2020 POTUS run for her; she is up for reelection in 2018. If she loses, she’ll have to go back to her lucrative ‘teaching’ career at Haavaad. No one is gonna float a losing Senator as a POTUS candidate; not even the stupid Democraps who, as of right now, are a non-entity.

    Bring it. We conservatives will do everything we can to make sure she never sits in that Senate seat again, let alone occupy the White House. You can take that to the bank, along with Schilling’s bloody sock.
