@okie,
Thank You, Okie. Most Americans do not know that Barack Hussein Obama was up to is elbows in the corruption that is Illinois Politics.

As an addendum to your excellent link--

l. Barack Hussein Obama, the most brilliant president the USA has ever had or so say the far left wing) did not, amazingly, deduce that his pastor in the church he attended for over seven years was a VIOLENT Anti-American.

2. Barack Hussein Obama worked as a community organizer in the Chicago ghetto AFTER being trained and supervised by the acolytes of Saul Alinsky--a radical and doctrinaire Socialist.

3. Bararck Hussein Obama, the brilliant one, did not know that Blagojevich, who was later impeached was corrupt./ Really!!!

4. Barack Hussein Obama's top aide, Rahm Emanuel, was endorsed to run in his North Side Chicago District( for the Federal House of Representatives by people who John Kass, columnist of the Chicago Tribune, links with Mafia figures.

5. Barack Hussein Obama was helped in the purchase of his Chicago Mansion by Anton Rezko, a convicted political fixer. Most people in Chicago politics knew for years that Rezko was a sleazy political fixer but it would appear that the brilliant Obama did not.

and,last but certainly not least,. Barack Hussein Obama's friend ( he was the first to have a gathering to back Obama's campaign for Senator, the notorious former Weatherman bomber, WilliamAyres, appointed Obama to a seat on the Woods Foundation. THROUGH THIS FOUNDATION, OBAMA WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN GIVING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN GRANTS TO
GUESS WHO?

A C O R N

Yes, the same ACORN who hadmembers indicted for vote fraud and vote stealing.

Birdseye view of some of Obama's excellent community organizer work in Chicago:

And now, Okie- we run into this--

Denials aside, recovery hard for Burris' image





Associated Press - May 27, 2009 7:44 PM ET

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Sen. Roland Burris again finds himself denying any role in a pay-to-play scheme as newly revealed wiretaps show him begging for his Senate seat and offering to donate to ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's campaign.

But the 71-year-old Burris repeatedly insists he did nothing wrong. He told reporters today that his taped conversation with Blagojevich's brother was the result of a misunderstanding. He said he was trying to placate the governor's brother because he wanted to win a Senate appointment.

Both the Senate Ethics Committee and authorities in Illinois are investigating Burris.

But when asked in a recent interview with The Associated Press how the scandal back home has affected him, Burris made a sweeping gesture with his hands as if to brush the matter aside


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

Note:

l. Obama knew nothing about this. The allegedly most brilliant man ever to be president did not know that Burris was dirty. The most expert strategist was unaware that Blagojevich sold positions, even Senatorial ones. Only the left wing could believe that.

2. I predict that Burris will be re-elected. The large majority that will vote for him, Okie, come from the neighborhoods like the one you pictured in the photo. Not only did they never read an editorial pointing out that Burris and Blogojevich were dirty, they could not read it with understanding.

As some political wag once mentioned--You should not rob Peter to pay Paul until there are more Pauls around. We have reached that point.

"Patrick J. Fitzgerald is the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois. Rumors have been circulating that Tony Rezko was getting ready to spill his guts to the US Attorney in connection with the Blagojevich Trial. There is speculation some of the Rezko testimony would implicate Obama in his criminal activities."

@okie,
As reported July 30, 2009:
Quote:
Patrick Fitzgerald, the top prosecutor in Illinois’ Northern District, has been named interim chairman of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee of U.S. Attorneys (AGAC).

In his new role, Fitzgerald will be the lead voice for the U.S. attorney community. It’s the latest high-profile assignment for America’s prosecutor, who has been busy overseeing the prosecution of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D), bringing down mortgage fraudsters, and fighting with journalists.

H. Marshall Jarrett, director of the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, made the announcement earlier this month in a memo to the nation’s 93 U.S. attorneys.

The committee, which represents the views of the nation’s top prosecutors and molds law enforcement policy, has dwindled in size as Bush-era appointees have headed for the exit. Fitzgerald replaces Karin Immergut, the former U.S. attorney in Oregon, who stepped down as chairwoman this month to become a state judge. (Fun facts: Fitzgerald and Immergut share the same birthdate " December 22, 1960 " are both from Brooklyn, and attended Amherst College together.)

Fitzgerald’s assignment is significant. It means the U.S. attorney community now has a chief ambassador with some staying power. ... ... ...

@okie,
Here's some of GW Bush's good works in Iraq. If it's possible at all, okie, try to compare what Obama "failed to do in your eyes in Chicago" vs what GW Bush destroyed in Iraq while using WMDs to prosecute his illegal war.

Quote:
United States used weapons of mass destruction in Iraq
From SourceWatch

"At intervals, white phosphorus rounds would illuminate entire sections of the city, showering down balls of orange flame and leaving behind smoky jellyfish-shaped silhouettes." --Newsweek, November 22, 2004.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

In the November 8, 2004, Operation Phantom Fury, the U.S.-led assault on Fallujah, "[s]ome artillery guns fired white phosphorous rounds that create a screen of fire that cannot be extinguished with water. Insurgents reported being attacked with a substance that melted their skin, a reaction consistent with white phosphorous burns," the Washington Post reported November 10, 2004.

On Wednesday, November 16, 2005, the Pentagon "acknowledged using incendiary white-phosphorus munitions in a 2004 offensive against insurgents in the Iraqi city of Falluja and defended their use as legal, amid concerns by arms control advocates," Reuters reported November 16, 2005. "Army Lt. Col. Barry Venable, a Pentagon spokesman, said the U.S. military had not used the highly flammable weapons against civilians."

"Key Figure in Blagojevich Corruption Probe Found Dead
Christopher Kelly, 51, a key Blagojevich adviser was found dead at his home."


.....

Kelly was expected to report to federal prision Sept. 18, according to MyFOXChicago.

Days after his guilty plea, he said he was being pressured by the federal prosecutors to cooperate in their Blagojevich corruption investigation, the Sun-Times reported.

Kelly was indicted on three separate federal cases, including the one that alleges Blagojevich sought to sell or trade President Obama's former seat in the U.S. Senate.

@okie,
Just checking on this report about Kelly, and apparently Kelly was not found dead at home after all, he was found in a lumber yard, then taken and treated and then died. Am I the only one that finds this a bit strange? And now the possibility of a homicide is reported by the police?

http://newsblogs.chicagotribune.com/clout_st/2009/09/sources-say-theyve-been-notified-key-blagojevich-probe-figure-is-dead.html

Kelly was found in a lumber yard near 173rd Street and Cicero Avenue in Country Club Hills late Friday, said the town's mayor, Dwight Welch. Kelly arrived at Oak Forest Hospital at 11:15 p.m. Friday, said Marcel Bright, a Stroger Hospital spokesman.

....

"We are treating this as a death investigation--it's a possible homicide or suicide, but it's a high-profile case so we have a homicide level investigation," Welch said.

And this article:

http://newsblogs.chicagotribune.com/clout_st/2009/09/blagojevich-fundraiser-friend-christopher-kelly-dies-of-possible-overdose.html?obref=obinsite

The mention here of a "girlfriend." Who is she and why was she there? Sorry to be curious.

Kelly dies of possible overdose
Authorities say death may be suicide but are investigating it as homicide.

....

Sources said a girlfriend of Kelly's drove him to nearby Oak Forest Hospital of Cook County.

@okie,
Apparently he took rat poison and aspirin.

http://www.abc3340.com/news/stories/0909/659678.html

"The determination has been made by our police department that Mr. Kelly's death was an apparent suicide," Country Club Hills Mayor Dwight Welch told reporters.

"A top aide to former Gov. Rod Blagojevich said he believed Barack Obama knew of Blagojevich's plot to win himself a presidential Cabinet post in exchange for appointing Valerie Jarrett to the U.S. Senate.

John Harris, Blagojevich's former chief of staff, testified Wednesday in the former governor's corruption trial that three days after the Nov. 4, 2008, presidential election, the ex-governor told Harris he felt confident Obama knew he wanted to swap perks."

@okie,
So surprising, no libs here to jump on my last post. They don't even bother to defend Obama. I guess they just aren't interested in cleaning up the corruption in government, that is if its Democrat? Which we already knew a long time ago however. My guess, just a guess, is it would be drastically different here if it was Bush's name instead of Obama's being used in the courtroom.

Maybe I should adopt ican's pattern here, keep posting the same facts over and over again until the truth eventually sinks into the minds of liberals, even if it takes years. At least this deserves posting this one more time, if just one Obama koolaid drinker had the courage to read it and face the reality of it.
