CDC H1N1 Flu Update, May 8, 2009, Illinois, IL largest reports, US Human Cases of H1N1 Flu Infection, Obama and Baxter International Chicago, IL connections

** Update, The lastest CDC numbers are at the bottom. 5/08/2009, 12:15 PM ET **

I, like many of you, am watching reports of the Swine flu, H1N1, more carefully each day. I have been visiting the CDC site with regularity and due to my math background and inquisitive nature, something  in the data stood out this morning. It may mean nothing, but it is a curiousity, and given Obama’s connections to Chicago and Baxter International being located there, there is cause for more scrutiny.

Notice in the CDC report of confirmed flu cases by state that Illinois has almost twice as many cases as the next highest state. Illinois has 204, California, with a much higher population and located adjacent to Mexico has 106, Texas with a large population and located adjacent to Mexico has 91 and New York with a much larger population has 98. The more I have pondered these numbers and logistics, the more curious I have become.

Senator Barack Obama, Illinois, US Constitution Hall of Shame, Obama not eligible, US Congress, Electoral College Votes, Obama’s eligibility must be challenged, IL senator, Obama Man of the Year

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the
Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and
domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;
that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation
or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge
the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
Congressional oath of office

US Constitution

Hall of Shame

2008 Man of the Year

Senator Barack H Obama

Barack Obama is named the US Constitution Hall of Shame Man of the Year
for obvious reasons. Obama, whose father was a Kenyan citizen and under
British rule, and therefore not a natural born citizen and not eligible
to be president, has worked all of the 2008 election year to steal the
presidency. What is even more scary, is that Obama was probably born
in Kenya, not a US citizen at all and therefore an illegal alien.

Barack Obama has thumbed his nose at the US Constitution, rule of law
and American people. His arrogance and “me me me” attitude is a product
of the “government owes me” mentality and Chicago crime and corruption
that engenders a position of being above the law. Obama has looked
down upon the US Constitution despite taking an oath to “support and
defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
foreign and domestic”

Obama’s disregard for the rule of law goes back for many years to strong
ties to crime and corruption in Chicago and Illinois involving such
corruption figures as Rezko, Levine, Blagojevich and many others and
continues as he attempts to avoid proving he is eligible to be
president. Here are some prominent examples of Obama’s flagrant disregard
for the US Constitution and Rule of law.

Barack Obama has run for the office of President of the United States and
is clearly not eligible. For his own selfish gain he has ignored the US
Constitution, unfairly impacted other candidates and disenfranchised
millions of voters. He has also obtained millions of dollars of campaign
donations under fraudulent circumstances and caused many others to spend
enormous amounts of time and money trying to expose Obama’s fraud.

Here are some facts regarding Obama’s eligibility:

Why Obama is not eligible

What Hawaii Health Official really said

Latest information on court cases

One of the hallmarks of the Obama camapaign was repeated attempts to
discredit those questioning Obama. This included massive internet armies
utilized by the Obama camp to make personal attacks on internet users
and websites, prominent people like Jon Voight and many others as well
as scrubbing internet data and attempts at revisionist history. Many
voters and campaign workers were harrassed and theatened during the
primaries and general election. The Obama camp even threatend news
organizations.

Consider the following from Missouri Governor Matt Blunt:

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words……
abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political
criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment. This abuse
of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals
of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking
than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil
rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the
others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free
and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative
organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of
Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke
out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily
conversation about the election. “Barack Obama needs to grow up……Enlisting
Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is

reminiscent of the Sedition Acts
– not a free society.”

In Obama’s own words:

“I want you to argue with them and get in their face…You are my Ambassadors”
Obama quoted in San Francisco Gate, by Kathleen Hennessey, September 17, 2008

Philip J Berg states:

“Defendants (Obama and DNC) are attempting to change our United States
Constitution without proper due process of law by allowing Obama to continue
his campaign and continue seeking election as the President of the United States,
knowing he is not a “natural born” citizen and the fact he may not even be a
“naturalized” citizen.”

Barack Obama visited Kenya in 2006 and campaigned for his far left leaning
cousin Raila Odinga. Obama was in possible violation of the Logan Act but at
the very least was guilty of “High crimes and misdemeanors.” Here is an exerpt
from the official Kenyan Government response to Obama’s visit:

“RESPONSE TO AMERICAN SENATOR BARACK OBAMA’S POORLY INFORMED COMMENTS
ABOUT TERRORISM, WANTED GENOCIDE CRIMINALS AND GOVERNANCE IN KENYA”

“Senator Barack Obama indicated that he was visiting Africa to help nurture
relations between the continent and the United States. His mission, therefore,
was warmly welcomed by the Government and the people of Kenya. The fact that
he has roots in Kenya endeared him to the people of this country.

However, during his public address at the University of Nairobi, Senator Obama
made extremely disturbing statements on issues which it is clear, he was very
poorly informed, and on which he chose to lecture the Government and the people
of Kenya on how to manage our country.”

Here is a video of Obama and Raila Odinga:

Obama continues contact with leftist Odinga

Obama lied on his Illinois Bar Application by not listing his aliases
and having multiple oustanding traffic tickets. He then relinquished
his law license early to avoid prosection.

The following videos reveal much about what Obama
thinks about the US Constitution.

Constitutinal Lawyer’s perspective on exactly WHAT
Obama said during his 2001 radio interview.

Rezko, Obama, Blagojevich, Larry Sinclair, press conference, Chicago, Illinois, Middle east, corruption, Rezko talk?, Cocaine use, Obama indictment next?

I have been following the Tony Rezko trial and his ties to Obama,
Governor Blagojevich and crime and corruption in Chicago, Illinois
and the Middle East. Now that Rezko has been convicted, more
indictments are probable. Larry Sinclair is holding a press
conference this week. Was Obama using cocaine in November 1999?
Many aspects of Obama’s past, that the Obama campaign has tried
to hide, are surfacing. If you are buying in to the Obama
Campaign’s latest spin ploy, fighting rumors, this is about
court testimony and documentation. The picture of the real Obama
is emerging and it is scary.

Part 1.

The chickens are indeed coming home to roost.

Larry Sinclair has been attempting to educate the nation and
the world about the real Obama. The Obama that he alleges
was still using cocaine in 1999, while a member of the Illinois
Senate. Mr. sinclair has a news conference scheduled for Wednesday,
June 18, 2008. The Obama Campaign, Obama supporters and the big
money in Illinois and the Middle East have maintained a massive
campaign to try to discredit Mr. Sinclair. This campaign has
manifested itself in the form of a new spin machine, an attempt
to lump all allegations and questions as rumors. Or as Michelle
likes to say, don’t believe what you read on the internet.

While the Sinclair allegations have always been a serious matter
and part of the puzzle picture of Obama, I have always maintained
that the Sinclair story did not happen in a vacuum and fits well
within the context of Obama’s life and associations.Remember Stuart
Levine, a close associate of Rezko, admitted to a long time drug
problem and hosting regular drug parties with male friends.

Another serious and troubling aspect of Obama’s associations was
revealed in the Tony Rezko trial. Rezko was convicted of 16 of 24
counts of corruption. Obama and Rezko have a long and close
association. Obama and Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich were
mentioned frequently during the Rezko trial. Blagojevich was
mentioned more and may be the next person indicted as well as
being impeached. Obama endorsed Blagojevich.

Consider the following articles from the Chicago Tribune. If you
are an Obama supporter, this is a long established newspaper
that has been covering the rezko trial, Obama, Blagojevich
and the next phase of government indictments, in their move to bring
to justice, the players in Illinois corruption.

Rezko trial prelude to more indictments:
“The Justice Department’s prosecution of Antoin “Tony” Rezko was always about prelude, never about climax. The jury’s conviction of Rezko Wednesday on 16 criminal counts is one more point on a long investigative arc — an arc now pointed directly at Gov. Rod Blagojevich and other of his associates.

That arc reaches beyond the horizon to points none of us can see. But prosecutor Christopher Niewoehner unequivocally — and forcefully — told the Rezko jurors during closing arguments where federal authorities now are concentrating: “This is a crime that involves the highest levels of power in Illinois.””

Peel away layers of corruption:

“Everybody in Illinois is asking the same questions following Wednesday’s conviction of Tony Rezko, the governor’s friend and former fundraiser, on corruption charges. Who’s next? Will “Public Official A” get his turn?

Of course, “A” is Gov. Rod Blagojevich, outed as being under investigation a few months ago by a federal judge at the onset of Rezko’s trial. The revelations coming out of that deliberation — in testimony from the likes of Stuart Levine, Ali Ata, others — have been very damaging to this governor’s reputation, which was not so great to begin with.”

Will Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich be impeached?

“The memo sent to some House Democratic candidates, obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, offers a rundown of Blagojevich’s alleged “misdeeds and malfeasance” and detailed talking points on the merits of impeachment.

“We should excise a tumor when it is first discovered; not leave it in the body to continue to spread and do further harm,” the memo reads.”

Rezko’s letter should put Obama, governor on alert:

“The last thing Sen. Barack Obama and Gov. Rod Blagojevich needed was that letter written by convicted Illinois influence peddler Tony Rezko promising he’d never rat out his pals.”

For several weeks, the situation with Tony Rezko has reminded me
of Jack Ruby, who remained in prison. Like Rezko, he had connections
to crime and corruption. Rezko is connected to Obama, Chicago and
Illinois crime and corruption as well as Middle East big money
and corruption.

Will Tony Rezko talk?

Will Blagojevich be indicted or impeached?

Will Obama be indicted?

Part two in this series on Rezko, Obama and corruption in Chicago,
Illinois and the Middle East, will have “more layers peeled.”

“Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.”

Los Angeles Times article

The Los Angeles Times, in an article dated April 27, 2008 reveals
that Obama received a $8,000 a month retainer from Robert Blackwell
for his technology firm, Electronic Knowledge Interchange,
for a total of $112,000. The following exerpts are from the LA times
article:
“A few months after receiving his final payment from EKI, Obama sent a request on state Senate letterhead urging Illinois officials to provide a $50,000 tourism promotion grant to another Blackwell company, Killerspin.”

“With support from Obama, other state officials and an Obama aide who went to work part time for Killerspin, the company eventually obtained $320,000 in state grants between 2002 and 2004 to subsidize its tournaments.”

“But Obama portrays himself as a lawmaker dedicated to transparency and sensitive to even the appearance of a conflict of interest.”

“Killerspin’s owner, Blackwell, was a political supporter and friend as well. Both men lived on Chicago’s South Side. Blackwell, a savvy and successful entrepreneur, was one of the first donors to Obama’s early campaigns, including the state senator’s failed bid for a congressional seat in 2000. In the presidential race he is credited on Obama’s website with committing to raise $100,000 to $200,000 for Obama’s campaign.”

Robert Blackwell responded with comments on this blog. Here is an exerpt:

“I hired Barack because I knew him and he was a very talented young lawyer.

Too bad that this story is such a distortion of the real truth.”

Governor Rod Blagojevich and Tony Rezko

Governor Rod Blagojevich of Illinois has been mentioned multiple times during the trial of Tony Rezko. Here are some exerpts from the Chicago Tribune coverage of the trial:

“Strong charges about pay-to-play politics in Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s administration have been hurled by prosecution star witness Stuart Levine in the federal corruption trial of the governor’s friend and fundraiser, Antoin “Tony” Rezko.

Levine has claimed that Rezko promised to help kill an administration reform plan for pension boards in exchange for Levine steering state pension business to contributors to the governor’s campaign. But under questioning from Rezko lawyer Joseph Duffy Tuesday, Levine acknowledged that he knew of no firms that actually got pension business in exchange for campaign cash.

Rezko is charged with working with Levine to corrupt the decisions of two state panels, including a $30 billion teacher’s pension fund, in an attempt to extort millions of dollars in kickbacks. Levine, a member of both boards, has pleaded guilty in the case.”
