Fake Russian and DNC leak narratives still impede truth in Seth Rich and Flynn cases, Judge Sullivan, DC Appeals Court, FBI, UK, Ellen Ratner stonewall justice

“Ellen Ratner can confirm that the Saturday before the Election 2016, she met with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for 3 hours. He told her that Russia did not “hack” the DNC, it was from an internal source.”...Ellen Ratner’s attendance at Embry University symposium on November 9, 2016

“Why John Brennan, Peter Strzok and DOJ Needed Julian Assange Arrested”…The Conservative Treehouse November 3, 2019

On Judge Sullivan: “if there was any doubt up to this point whether his conduct gives the appearance of partiality, that doubt is gone.”...Judge Rao dissenting opinion

 

It is coming to a head.

The truth about the fake Russian Narrative and the leak of DNC data during the 2016 election cycle.

The final pieces of the puzzle are in reach.

The dark forces of the Democrat Deep State are resisting with all their might.

The General Michael Flynn case should have already been dismissed.

We know the truth and are waiting on Durham indictments.

In the recent DC Appeal Court decision in the Flynn motion for Writ of Mandamus, 2 non Clinton Obama justices dissented and revealed the impartiality of Judge Sullivan. This also revealed the efforts of the deep state.

Letters Rogatory have been sent to the UK requesting the testimony of Julian Assange in at least 2 Seth Rich cases.

Ellen Ratner, who met with Julian Assange in 2016 and stated that he said the DNC leaks were an inside job, filed a motion under seal to file document(s) under seal. This was after numerous attempts to serve a subpoena on her.

The dark force Democrat Deep State is desperate to stop these revelations before the 2020 election.

They will do anything.

Their mantra: The end justifies the means.

Obama and Rezko, Kenneth J Conner lawsuit, Update, February 13 2010, Whistleblower Conner fired by bank, FBI, Patrick Fitzgerald, Land appraisal, Obama Rezko real estate deal, Why has Obama not been indicted?

Lest

We

Forget

 

Forget Obama, not a chance.

As reported on this and other websites, Obama has long time close associations to crime and corruption in Chicago and Illinois. One of Obama’s longest and closest ties is to Tony Rezko, who of course has strong ties to Rod Blagojevich. On December 16, 2008, the Citizen Wells blog reported the following fallout from one of the Obama and Rezko real estate transactions.

“Since arresting Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald has renewed interest in convicted fundraiser Tony Rezko’s part in the purchase of Barack Obama’s Chicago mansion, according to a former real estate analyst who says he was interviewed by the federal prosecutor in the past 10 days.

Kenneth J. Conner told WND he was interviewed by investigators from Fitzgerald’s office regarding the purchase of the Obama mansion and the adjacent vacant lot that Rezko’s wife, Rita, purchased simultaneously. As WND reported last week, Connor filed a civil complaint in October with the Illinois Circuit Court in Cook County alleging he was fired by Mutual Bank of Harvey, Ill., because he objected to land appraisals submitted on behalf of the Rezkos and the Obamas, with the complicity of the bank.

Connor previously confirmed to WND that he told the FBI, months ago, 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.

Connor said his lawyer, Glenn R. Gaffney, also has been interviewed by the FBI about the Rezko-Obama deal within the past 10 days.”

Kenneth J Conner lawsuit, Obama and Rezko deal

Here is what is believed to be the latest status of the Kenneth J Conner lawsuit.

 

https://w3.courtlink.lexisnexis.com/cookcounty/Finddock.asp?DocketKey=CAAI0L0ABBEHA0LD

Spindled is a  Illinois courts term for the process of filing a motion, and filing the notice that the motion will be presented to the court for a hearing. The term derives from Cook County, Illinois, in which the court clerk had the practice of attaching the motion and notice papers o the clerk’s file with a needle, or “spindle.”

I have spoken to Kenneth J Conner on several occasions and will continue to monitor the lawsuit.

Many of us have wondered about Patrick Fitzgerald since he took the assignment from the Obama Administration. I must tell you that this continues to stink.

Pete Hoekstra, Administration is Withholding Information on Fort Hood Attack, Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, CIA, FBI, NSA, Obama said people should not jump to conclusions, Hoekstra ranking member on the House intelligence committee

From CNS News, November 9, 2009.

“Intel Committee Republican Says Administration is Withholding Information on Fort Hood Attack, Demands Preservation of Documents for Possible Congressional Probe”

“Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), the ranking Republican on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said Monday that the Obama administration has been withholding “critical information” on the Fort Hood murders allegedly committed by Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan. 

Hoekstra is demanding that the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Security Agency and the Director of National Intelligence preserve documents relating to the incident for use in possible future congressional investigation.

“President Obama said people should not jump to conclusions about what happened at Fort Hood, but the administration is in possession of critical information related to the attack that they are refusing to release to Congress or the American people,” Hoekstra said in a statement. “I intend to push for intense review of this and other issues related to the performance of the intelligence community and whether or not information necessary for military, state and local officials to provide for the security of the post was provided to them.”

The Michigan lawmaker sent a letter Saturday to the top administration intelligence officials, saying he saw “serious issues” with their performance related to the Fort Hood murders, and indicating that the intelligence community had refused to comply with his request to review certain information related to the case.

As the ranking member on the House intelligence committee, Hoekstra is one of the so-called Gang of Eight–a group of lawmakers that included the leaders of the House and Senate and the leaders of the House and Senate intelligence committees–who are briefed on intelligence activities deemed too sensitive to share with the full intelligence committees.

“Over the past 24 hours, I have been made aware of information from the intelligence community that suggests the possibility that serious issues exist with respect to the performance of U.S. intelligence agencies in connection with what appears to have been a terrorism-related attack on Fort Hood, Texas by Nidal Malik Hasan,” Hoekstra wrote. “I am disappointed that the administration has not been more transparent with the American people.”
 
Hoekstra’s letter was addressed to Dennis Blair, the director of national intelligence (DNI); CIA Director Robert Mueller; FBI Director Leon Panetta and Lt. Gen. Keith Alexander, the director of the National Security Agency (NSA).

“Given the potential seriousness of these issues, I am troubled that the intelligence community has not been more immediately forthcoming with the congressional oversight committees and has refused to provide specific information I have requested to review in connection with this matter,” said Hoekstra.”

“As a result, Hoekstra requested that the CIA, FBI, NSA and DNI preserve all documents relating to the Fort Hood attack and related matters for potential investigation by Congress.

“I am requesting that you immediately issue a preservation order to all personnel in your agencies with respect to all documents and materials related to the Fort Hood incident and any related investigations or intelligence collection activities, including other potentially related threats,” Hoekstra wrote. “The record must be clear and complete with respect to these matters, which I am beginning to fear will require significant and serious oversight activity by the Committee.””

Orly Taitz, Update, April 13, 2009, Dr. Taitz new website, Defend our Freedoms, San Antonio TX tea party, FBI, Citizens Grand Jury

I just got off the phone with Dr. Orly Taitz. We spoke for a while about her website and the recent controversy. Dr. Taitz has a new website for Defend Our Freedoms.

http://repubx.com/

Orly stated that Defend our Freedoms is her foundation and that she has been blocked from accessing her data on the previous website. She is still committed to the cause of exposing the truth about Barack Obama.

We also spoke about the US Supreme Court, Justice Scalia, Chief Justice Roberts and law clerk Danny Bickell. She and I are both concerned that Bickell is still employed at the Supreme Court after all of the shady dealings that she and other attorneys experienced from Danny Bickell.

Dr. Orly Taitz will attend the San Antonio, TX tea party and stated she will be willing to stay an extra day if enough citizens are willing to meet with the local FBI office and initiate a Citizens Grand Jury. She also stated that her expenses are very high. Every time that she travels she spends at least a thousand dollars. She is providing her services pro bono, so it is not asking too much for people to donate to the cause to help with expenses.

“Rod Blagojevich: Indictment could bring more defendants
Former governor’s brother, wife and campaign committee, as well as lobbyist Lon Monk, are possible targets

By John Chase and Jeff Coen | Tribune reporters
March 31, 2009

With a deadline fast approaching for federal prosecutors to file an indictment against former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, all eyes will be on the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse this week.

Sources with knowledge of the probe have said the indictment could be filed as soon as Thursday. That is the last scheduled day for the grand jury investigating the former governor to meet before an April 7 deadline for filing the indictment.

The grand jury has convened on Thursdays throughout the lengthy federal investigation.

The indictment is expected to include more details about the allegations against Blagojevich and his former chief of staff John Harris regarding the corruption charges leveled against them in December. It also could include more defendants.

Known targets include Blagojevich’s brother, Robert, who headed the former governor’s campaign fund; Lon Monk, Blagojevich’s onetime best friend and former chief of staff; Blagojevich’s wife, Patricia; and Friends of Blagojevich, the ex-governor’s campaign committee.”

Obama thugs?, Thought police, Oklahoma City police officer, February 18, 2009, anti-President Barack Obama sign, Free speech threatened, Secret Service, FBI, First Amendment rights violated

Are Big Brother and the Thought Police tightening their grip?

From Enid Oklahoma News,Ffebruary 18, 2009:

“OKC officer pulls man over for anti-Obama sign on vehicle

By Bridget Nash, Staff Writer

An Oklahoma City police officer wrongly pulled over a man last week and confiscated an anti-President Barack Obama sign the man had on his vehicle.

The officer misinterpreted the sign as threatening, said Capt. Steve McCool, of the Oklahoma City Police Department, and took the sign, which read “Abort Obama, not the unborn.”

Chip Harrison said he was driving to work when a police car followed him for several miles and then signaled for him to pull over.

“I pulled over, knowing I hadn’t done anything wrong,” Harrison said in a recent phone interview.

When the officer asked Harrison if he knew why he had been pulled over, Harrison said he did not.

“They said, ‘It’s because of the sign in your window,’” Harrison said.

“It’s not meant to be a threat, it’s a statement about abortion,” Harrison said.

He said he disagrees with the president’s position on abortion.

“I asked the officer, ‘Do you know what abort means?’” Harrison said. “He said, ‘Yeah, it means to kill.’ I said, ‘No, it means to remove or terminate.’”

Harrison said his sign was to be interpreted as saying something like: Remove Obama from office, not unborn babies from the womb.

The officers confiscated Harrison’s sign and gave him a slip of paper that stated he was part of an investigation.”

““The Secret Service called and said they were at my house,” Harrison said.”

Obama thugs, Obama camp threats, First Amendment violations, Internet hackers, Death threats, Personal attacks, Nazi Brownshirts, FBI, USDOJ, American public demands protection, Don’t Tread on me

Over the 2008 election year and continuing to the present,
Americans of all walks of life have been threatened for
one reason, questioning the “messiah”, Obama, Barack Obama
and his cult of alleged change has become a fanatical
religion to many young people and wackos of the far left.
To ask any question about Obama’s credentials or his
dubious past was to appear to his cult followers as a
crazed infidel. Of course, not all of those attacking inncocent
Americans were just overzealous Obama worshippers. Many
were paid internet specialists and hackers paid by the Obama
campaign or the larger Obama camp. The Obama camp includes
those in this country and abroad that pull the puppet strings
controlling Obama.

The list of those receiving personal attacks and
death threats is long but includes the following:

Larry Sinclair

Jerome Corsi

Jon Voight

Joe the Plumber

Philip J Berg

Dr. orly Taitz

Dr. Ila Peterson

Numerous bloggers and internet sites

Thousands of average Americans seeking answers

The legion of evil performing these disgusting acts has believed
it would be untouched for a variety of reasons. Many believed
that the Nazi Brownshirt component of the Obama camp would gain
sufficient power after the inauguration to make them invulnerable.

This is a message from the American people. We are not going to
tolerate these attacks. We will hold these low lifes and the law
enforcement agencies set in place to protect the public, accountable.
I have it on authority that there are efforts underway to begin
rounding up these criminals.

From Sinclair’s blog:

“Updated @12:07 AM 2-16-09

I have removed the original post due to unrelenting harassment directed at my friend.

It is truly a sad state of this Country to know that the President and his staff can with total disregard for the Law and the Constitution attack, threaten, harass and intimidate American citizens and their children the way Barack Obama and his paid staff have done.”

Why Barack Obama should be indicted

Part 8

One or more of the following events should happen:

  • Obama steps down.
  • Obama is forced to prove eligibility.
  • Obama is indicted and/or arrested.

If one of the above does not occur within a few months,
perhaps we should look to the Declaration of Independence
or Thomas Jefferson, for our next strategy.

 

Many great writers such as Evelyn Pringle and many bloggers and
websites have attempted to reveal the truth about Barack Obama by
early 2008 and in some cases past years. Very little coverage about Obama
has made it to the MSM except for the articles in the Chicago Tribune,
Sun-Times and a few other papers. Fox News has been the only major
TV outlet to attempt to uncover the real Obama. Barack Obama has long
time ties to crime and corruption in Chicago and Illinois. His guilt
and ties are every bit as strong as recently arrested Rod Blagojevich.

The Citizen Wells blog will be revisiting older news stories about Obama
and presenting them in the new light of Chicago corruption that is before
the public as a result of the Tony Rezko trial and Blagojevich
investigation and prosecution. After reading a few of the articles the
following will be clear.

One or more of the following events should happen:

  • Obama steps down.
  • Obama is forced to prove eligibility.
  • Obama is indicted and/or arrested.

If one of the above does not occur within a few months, perhaps we
should look to the Declaration of Independence or Thomas Jefferson,
for our next strategy.

 
The following is from an article written by looseheadprop on February 6,
2008. As you read the article, consider this biographical description
provided by looseheadprop ( a Democrat ):

“About Me:
In rugby, the loosheadprop is the player in the front row of the scrum, who has the ability to collapse the scrum, pretty much at will and without the referee knowing who did it. While this can give the LHP’s team a great tactical advantage, it also exposes scrum players from both teams to the dangers of catastrophic spinal cord injury. Consequently, playing this position makes you understand your responsibility to put doing the right thing ahead of winning, and to think beyond your own wants and desires. It also makes you very law and order oriented. I am a former federal prosecutor who also served at other levels of government, both in civil and criminal law, including as Counsel to an Inspector General. These days, I’m a a soccer mom and a partner in a small law practice with a buddy of mine from the US Attorney’s Office.”

Article

“I have long been an admirer of Ms. Kennedy’s and I think she has point. Problem is, Obama has a Tony Rezko problem. Actually a whole bunch of Tony Rezko problems. And a few other problems here and there which do not say very good things about his character or his sense of ethics or his ability to spot the appearance of impropriety. I include on that list the recent revelations about the legislation which he claims to have “passed” relating to leakage of nuclear material into drinking water.

REZKO

When Obama became president of the Harvard Law Review, Rezko interviewed him for a job working for one of Rezko’s companies. Obama turned down the job, but instead accepted more indirect employment at the law firm representing a series of Rezko’s not-for-profit partners in the series of transactions to build and rehab low income housing that are now the subject of federal indictment in Chicago which US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald described as “pay to play on steroids.”

Obama was an attorney with a small Chicago law firm — Davis Miner Barnhill & Galland — that helped Rezmar get more than $43 million in government funding to rehab 15 of their 30 apartment buildings for the poor.

Resko got millions of dollars to build and rehab low income housing and according to the government, embezzled the money. The people in those houses had no heat, no water. They lived in squalor–many in Obama’s State senate district. You could assume constituent complaints would have come in and Obama’s law firm did the legal work for those government contracts and grants. Yet he denies knowing about it.”

“Barack Obama, for his part, went to Rezko for “advice” about how to buy a house he cannot afford and “poof” Rezko’s wife pays full price for a portion of the property and Obama gets a discount on the house. A while later, he bought back 1/6 of the lot from her for 1/6 of the price she paid for it. How is that different from an interest free loan equal to the amount paid for that 1/6 of the lot? According to MyDD, Obama pays for the landscaping of the Rezko lot and may have been using it to park his cars because his neighborhood does not allow on street parking, in which case how is this different from rent free occupancy of the land?”

“One of the things that came out about Abramoff et al. was that they would invite Congress critters to play poker and wine and dine in a hotel suite that the lobbyist paid for, and then let them win. It was a way of passing money to them without leaving a paper trail. The Chicago events were hosted at the HQ of a lobbying organization, I think it’s fair to assume that the cocktails and Cohibas were provided by the hosts and the article makes a point of saying that he was a stingy better and a cautious player–directly suggesting that he seldom lost. And what kind of message are you sending joking about the game being a “Committee Meeting”?

One of the reasons public corruption cases, at least the bribery part, are often so hard to prove is that the participants go to great lengths to have a “beard” for the transactions. Paying for vacations, losing at poker, doing repairs on the elected’s house without any invoices, throwing business to the elected’s (or their relative’s) law firms or companies, regularly taking the elected out for very expensive meals is known as soft bribery. In the Bess Meyerson case, which the government lost, the bribe was a job for the judge’s otherwise unemployable daughter.

Unless someone flips and gives you testimony, or unless, as in Operation Greylord, you have audio or video tapes, it’s really really hard to get a conviction because there usually is not much of a paper trail. Since there wouldn’t even be hotel records for the Chicago games, they are particulary fuzzy.”

“As a state senator, Barack Obama wrote letters to city and state officials supporting his political patron Tony Rezko’s successful bid to get more than $14 million from taxpayers to build apartments for senior citizens.

In that deal Rezko paid only $1 for the land. The rest of the deal, which included an $800,000 development fee paid to Rezko’s company, was entirely financed by public money.”

“Was it simply enough that Obama didn’t make waves about the lack of heat and deplorable conditions in the Rezko buildings situated within Obama’s state senate district? I don’t know. But I was struck by a comment Obama made in the debate on of the debates to the effect of “you know how Illinois politics are” or some such. Followed later on by

Nobody’s hands are perfectly clean in politics. That is true. I mean, there a distinction, though, between not taking PAC and federal lobbyist money and having that as a major way of driving your campaign and having some ancillary involvement.”

Sorry Siun, maybe I just assumed eveybody would get the Abramoff reference. It’s not a leap at all.

Abramoff as you may recall did his bribery often in subtle ways, He took his “friends” on all expense paid luxury vacations/ he took his “golfing buddies” to play at St. Andrews, on him, er, his clients

He and other lobbyists would rent out hotel suites and with free flowing liquor and food, “lose” at poker to people from Capitol Hill.

The “Committee Meetings” seem even more brazen in that they took place in the actual building of a lobbying organization and because of the name.”

As much as the house deal troubles me-and folks you really DO want to click through to the MyDD piece. It’s obvious a lot of research hours went into it–the “committee Meetings” disturb me even more.

Rezko is just one bad guy. The Committee Meeting has all sorts of potenial. It’s an instinctive reaction, not per se based on fact. But if I were still a public corruption investigator I would want to know a lot more about those poker games.”

Yes, the house deal looks bad, but the rest is quite circumstantial. Friendship with slumlord = crook.

I know slumlords. Am I a crook?

I never said friendship with a slumlord = crook. Don’t put a strawman argument in my mouth. I said that Obama is telling us to ignore the fact that he doesn’t have much of record to run on or much experience and instead to trust in his character.

That was the thrust of Caroline Kennedy’s argument on his behalf, ignore the other stuff and concentrate on his judgement and character.

Opposing the war and opposing land mines are examples of good judgement on his part.

Voting to fund the war, voting present during votes relating to a woman’s right to choose, hanging out at poker games in a lobbyist’s stronghold while imbibing the lobbyists’ liquor and cigars, APPROACHING a guy already publicly known to be under federal investigation for fraud and asking that guy for help in buying a house you cannot afford–and then accepting the equivalent of both an interest free loan and a rent free use of the the property the guy bought to help you out with your PERSONAL FINANCIAL transaction?

Examples of bad judgment and lack of character”

I was trying to rebut paragraph by paragraph but the site keeps hanging up for me. And I am falling WAYY behind in reading the subsequent comments.
I stand behind my belief that someone as bright as Obama HAD TO KNOW how bad those poker games looked. There is a phrase used in government ethics (and until recently I sat as a voting member on a government ethics commsion) there is an actual legal standard called

“Appearance of impropriety”

The mere fact of these games, and their cheeky nickname “committee meetings” (committe of what? to do what?) certainly meets that standard.”

If you mean why did Obama go to work for a firm that he was clearly overqualified for? This firm has had a spotty ethical history (one of the law firm’s partners left to become a partner of Rezko’s)

It’s not like he was doing something altruistic by joining this firm. It’s not like he went to work for the SCLU or Legal Aid.

I don’t think it equates with your not-for-profit service. BTW, Brava”

The partner began working in Land develpoment with Rezko while the firm was still reprsenting the not for profits in the land deals –a clear conflict of interest, which is why the partner had to leave.

That kind of conlfict of interst is a violation of legal ethics which in most states (and I believe in Illinois) is written in law. So yeah, that’s an example of spotty ethical history”

LHP, by the quote above, I take it that you wrote this piece to actually protect Obama in a sense? In other words, knowing how rough things will get, you want to air this out now.

And not the alternative context, which would be that you support Hillary Clinton, and have written this piece in order to assist her campaign

I am not trying to protect Obama or Hillary per se. I am trying to prevent the election of a GOP candidate in November”

Thanks. I’m not sure why you think the voting “present” isn’t an example of not great character. It’s not henious, but it’s not admirable either.

The law firm’s actions, I do find very troubling. And I’m not sure we know the whole story about the firm and these not for profits, which apparently didn’t exist until Obama incorporated them. Where they incorporated soley to partner up with Rezko? And if they were actual functioning independant groups, how is it that they all coincidently went to the same law firm?

And yes, a partenr becoming involved with Rezko’s underlying business while still at the firm, is a clear conflict of interest.

So, I think sleazy –which does not = violation of law, but does connote suspect practices is prabably the right word”
