Barack Obama steals hope in Chicago, Obama steals hope in Washington, Obama will steal hope of the entire nation, YouTube video, Rezko corruption, Rezko slums, Obama mansion

August 20, 2008

Read the Petition to Impeach, expel Senator Obama. Understand Obama’s long time close ties to crime and corruption in Chicago and Illinois. Consider how Obama helped developers like Rezko cheat the public and build slums with no heat. Remember that Obama gained from helping the likes of Rezko. Remember that Obama bought a mansion in Chicago and went from having trouble renting a car in 2001 to being wealthy in a few years. If you are a delegate to the Democratic Convention, if you are a concerned citizen, read the Petition to Impeach, expel Senator Obama and voice your concern.

There is a new YouTube video out that reveals how Obama has stolen the hope from Chicago, Washington and will steal the hope of the nation if given a chance. Here is the decription of the video and the video:

“Barack Obama steals hope in Chicago. He steals hope in Washington, and now he wants to steal the hope of the entire nation.

Barack Obama has had PLENTY of opportunity to do right (or is that Wright?) by the people of his district in Chicago and as a United States Senator. Now, Barack Obama wants to bring the same “success” he has had as a legislator to the Oval Office.

Just ask his constituents how well that worked out for them. Oh? Can’t find any? Well then, perhaps you should ask Tony Rezko…since NO ONE in the media seems to care to ask Barack Obama. This man is NOT QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT.”

Petition to Impeach and/or expel Senator Obama, 1000 signatures, Comments reveal disgust, Obama, media, MSM, Americans voice opinions, Democrat Convention, Congress

August 16, 2008

The Petition to Impeach and/or expel Senator Obama is gathering
steam. Over 1,000 petitioners have signed on and the majority
have voiced their outrage at Obama and the Main Stream Media, MSM.
Most Americans are shocked at the free ride and promotion of
Obama by the MSM. This petition is a means for Americans to
be heard. The signers of the petition are also urged to send a
paper copy of the petition or letter of their choosing to their
senators and representatives.

Some have asked if the petition will be presented to Congress.
The answer is yes!

We will attempt to make the Democrat Party Delegates aware of
the petition as well. You can help in this effort.

Some have questioned if a senator can be impeached.
The answer is, technically yes. However the petition is worded
to request impeachment and/or expulsion from the senate.

This petition is a grassroots effort from Democrats, Republicans
and Independents. This petition receives no funding.

The most important aspect of the petition is getting the attention
of the American people, MSM and Congress with the core problems
with Barack Obama. The offenses listed on the petition are more
of the legal and abuse of power kind. While there are many more
troubling aspects of Obama and his past, the ones considered
to be more “impeachable” were included.

Please tell as many people as you can about the petition.

         A PETITION

                        for

The Impeachment of Senator Barack Obama
     

TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama is an admitted illegal drug user and
is believed to have used illegal drugs as recently as November 1999
or more recently. Mr. Obama has maintained contact with other
admitted illegal drug users.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has maintained regular contact
with known criminals such as Antoin (Tony) Rezko and other
criminal elements in Chicago and Illinois. Mr. Obama has
conducted business with these criminals and received campaign
donations from them. Mr. Obama was compelled to return an estimated $250,000 in
donations related to Tony Rezko.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has consistently lied about his
contact with convicted criminal Tony Rezko. The Tony Rezko
corruption trial revealed that 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,” according to the February
10, 2008 Chicago Sun-Times.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has engaged in unscrupulous business
practices, in particular with Mr. Robert Blackwell. Mr. Obama
received an $ 8,000 per month “legal retainer” from Mr. Blackwell
for a total of $112,000 and reported the income through his law firm
in a manner not unlike money laundering. Obama, along with Obama
campaign manager Dan Shomon, procured $ 320,000 in state grants
for Blackwell’s company Killerspin. Blackwell companies contributed
over $ 32,000 to the Obama campaign in 2007.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama used the office of IL Senator to
facilitate the vote rigging in Chicago as chairman of the Illinois Senate
Health and Human Services Committee. Mr. Obama pushed legislation in Senate Bill
1332 to reduce the number of members of the Health Facilities Planning Board
from 15 to 9. Mr. Obama did conspire with Stuart Levine, Tony Rezko and
Rod Blogojevich to rig the committee and was rewarded with campaign
contributions. The new members appointed included 3 doctors who contributed to
Mr. Obama. On April 21, 2004, Stuart Levine explicitly advised Dr. Robert Weinstein,
who is now indicted, of Tony Rezko’s role in manipulating the Planning Board’s vote.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has engaged in lies and deception
about his past. Mr. Obama lied about his contact level with
convicted criminal Tony Rezko, the amounts and sources of
campaign contributions and encounters with the law. A complaint
has been filed with the Bar Association of Illinois alleging
that Mr. Obama did not answer truthfully all questions on the
application to the bar.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has invoked the FOIA in Illinois
when it was politically expedient and ignored or violated the
FOIA at other times. In the Illinois Senate proceedings of
Mr. Obama, in Senate Bill 1416, pleads the importance of businesses
bidding on state contracts having improved access to FOIA data. When
later questioned about his records during his term in the IL
Senate, Mr. Obama gave evasive answers or refused to supply records.

Whereas: The First Amendment provides a right for the people “to
petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Precedents
exist for impeachment and expulsion of a US Senator. Senator William
Blount was impeached by the House on July 7, 1797 and expelled by
the Senate the next day.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we, the People, Undersigned,
being citizens of the United States and residents in the Cities and States so
indicated, HEREBY Demand that the Congress of the United States begin
immediate impeachment and/or expulsion proceedings against Senator
Barack Obama.

      Addendum: Petition to Impeach Senator Obama

We were urged to add the following information about Senator Obama.
This comes under the topic of lies and deception but also falls under more
serious charges of abuse of power and possible violation of the Logan Act.
Those signing the petition prior to this addendum will be identified.

August 4, 2008

Whereas: As a US Senator, Barack Obama violated the stated intention of
his 2006 Official Government Visa to Africa by publicly propagandizing
for his cousin, Railla Odinga against the US democratic ally of Kenya.
Whereas the stated “mission” of Senator Obama’s Official Visa, according
to the Kenya Office of Public Communications, was to “nurture relations
between the Continent and the United States” he, instead, made public
protest before Kenya citizens to rally against their leadership,
invoking a need for “Change!” and accusing this US allied nation of
“corruption.” In Official Protest of Mr. Obama’s passport abuse and
misconduct, Kenya’s government cited his “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.” Whereas, furthermore, there is no public
record of any sanctions or reprimand by the US Congress of Senator
Obama’s passport violation or campaigning on foreign soil against a US
ally, history has since recorded the broadspread destruction of Kenya’s
economy and large scale loss of life as a result of the violence
instigated by Odinga’s ODM campaign there.

The Case Against Barack Obama, Dan Shomon, Obama, Corruption, Robert Blackwell, State Grants, Killerspin, Campaign Contributions, Chicago pay for play, David Freddoso

August 15, 2008

One of the charges of corruption against Barack Obama on the Petition to Impeach and/or expel him from the senate is below:

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has engaged in unscrupulous business
practices, in particular with Mr. Robert Blackwell. Mr. Obama
received an $ 8,000 per month “legal retainer” from Mr. Blackwell
for a total of $112,000 and reported the income through his law firm
in a manner not unlike money laundering. Obama, along with Obama
campaign manager Dan Shomon, procured $ 320,000 in state grants
for Blackwell’s company Killerspin. Blackwell companies contributed
over $ 32,000 to the Obama campaign in 2007.

The LA Times broke this story in April 2008. Obama’s dubious ties to Robert Blackwell and Dan Shomon have barely been touched since except for a few bloggers and now David Freddoso in his book, “The Case Against Barack Obama.”  Here are some exerpts from the book:

“Perhaps the most surprising story about Barack obama and money is one that no one talks about at all.  It involves ping-pong.  it is the story of how state Senator Obama was paid more than $100,000 for legal work, then helped his client’s company get $320,000 in taxpayer grants. 
For some reason, only the Los Angeles Times has examined the story of Robert Blackwell Jr. and the government grants he received after he invested in Barack Obama.

Obama writes in The Audacity of Hope that after his failed congressional run in 2000, he was “more or less broke.”  His family would make $240,000 that year, but they had large debts, and he had just loaned his losing campaign $9,500 and maxed out his credit card.  To keep his family afloat, he writes, he went back after the election to his law firm, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, which he had neglected throughout 2000 (he received no income from the firm that year).  He planned to do some legal work to supplement his modest $58,000 salary as a state senator.

In 2001, while serving as a state senator, Obama would earn $98,158 from his law practice.  Of that money, $80,000 came from a single client – Electronic Knowledge Interchange (EKI)-which had put him on a $8,000 monthly retainer.  This lasted fourteen months and netted Obama $112,000.  The company was owned by one Robert Blackwell Jr., a friend of Obama’s since about 1995.

Months after Obama received his final payment from EKI, he wrote a request on Illinois Senate letterhead and sent it to state officials for a $50,000 tourism grant to a company named Killerspin. This company was also owned by Blackwell.

Killerspin runs ping-pong tournaments and sells ping-pong gear.  After Obama’s original request, Killerspin received a $20,000 grant for a ping-pong tournament.  Over the next three years, Obama’s aide Dan Shoman-who was working for the senator part-time and part-time for Blackwell-would help Killerspin get a $200,000 state grant for its 2003 tournament and a $100,000 state grant for its 2004 tournament, for a total of $320,000.

So Blackwell’s company paid Senator Obama a large sum of money.  Blackwell’s other company received almost three times as much in state grants, with help from Obama and his aide.

The Times reports that Obama, in his required legal financial disclosures, buried his six-figure financial conflict of interest amid a list of hundreds of other clients represented by his law firm.  He did not mention that the majority of his 2001 income came from EKI-nor was he required to do so under Illinois law.  Moreover, the Times piece notes:

The business arrived at an especially fortuitious time because, as the law firm’s senior partner, Judson Miner, put it, “it was a very dry period here,” meaning that the ebb and flow of cases left little work for Obama and cash was tight.”

The Citizens Wells blog has covered Obama and his strong connections to Dan Shomon. The LA Times referred to Dan Shomon as an Obama aide. Shomon was actually Obama’s campaign manager at one time. Citizen Wells was contacted by Robert Blackwell after the followup articles to the LA Times article. Here are some exerpts from the Citizen Wells blog:

“Obama and his supporters have downplayed the legal retainer and grant
request. The MSM is barely touching this story. Even the LA Times,
that broke this story, downplays the significance of Dan Shomon and
refers to him as an Obama aide. Dan Shomon was much more than just
an Obama aide. Consider the following facts about Shomon and his
relation with Obama and other politicians and businessmen.

Here are the facts about Dan Shomon, Robert Blackwell, Alexi Giannoulias and Obama’s ties to Shomon, Blackwell, Alexi Giannoulias and Chicago and Illinois corruption:

Dan Shomon was a long time employee of Robert Blackwell and Barack Obama as well as main political advisor to Obama.

Obama initiated the request for Robert Blackwell company Killerspin to receive a grant from Illinois and made the request on official Illinois Senate stationery.

Shoman, while an employee of both Blackwell and Obama secured grants for Blackwell company Killerspin:
$200,000 grant for its 2003 tournament
$100,000 grant for its 2004 tournament

Robert Blackwell had strong ties to Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich who has been mentioned many times during the Tony Rezko corruption trial.
The following is from a news release by EKI Consulting:
“BLACKWELL JR. NAMED TO ILLINOIS GOVERNOR’S TRANSITION TEAM”
The top of the press release reads:
For Immediate Release
Contact: Dan Shomon, (312) 578-0450
(* reference 1)

Obama supported the re-election of Gov. Rod Blagojevich, whose administration is embroiled in corruption probes.

EKI, a Blackwell company, gave $20,000 to Blagojevich.
Electronic Knowledge Interchange won $6 million in technology consulting and software development contracts. EKI did no state
work until after Blagojevich took office.
(* reference 2)

Robert Blackwell Companies gave the following to Obama’s campaign in 2007:

BLACKWELL CONSULTING SERVICES $9,200.00
EKI  $6,925.00
KILLERSPIN  $16,500.00
(* reference 3)

Dan Shoman was referred to as an Obama aide in the LA Times article but he was much more than that:
October 2002
“He (Obama) consulted with Shoman, still his main political adviser”
(* reference 4)

April 13, 2006

“Like the ill-advised connection to Obama in Aurora, thanks to Dan Shomon, Obama is mentioned in the same discusion with all these problems with Giannoulias.”
“Shomon’s main activities are political campaigns and helping Obama and his friends like Alexi Giannoulias who is now the Treasurer for the State of Illinois.”
“We think it’s HIGHLY unethical of Dan Shomon or Tom Weisner to exploit the taxpayers of Aurora for political purpose. Barack Obama’s credibility is also risked in the process of Shomon and Weisner’s games at the expense of taxpayers.
“Aurora Mayor Thomas J. Weisner gave Shomon the lobbying gig in exchange for political work, including getting the endorsement of Barack Obama back in 2005 when Obama first said he would remain “neutral” in the heated mayoral race.”
“In the 2006 Democratic primary, for example, Obama endorsed first-time candidate Alexi Giannoulias for state treasurer despite reports about loans Giannoulias’ family-owned Broadway Bank made to crime figures. Records show Giannoulias and his family had given more than $10,000 to Obama’s campaign, which banked at Broadway.”
(* reference 5)
“Andy Martin says ‘retainer’ by Robert Blackwell, Jr. was classic Illinois ‘pay to play’ and may have been criminal behavior.”
(* reference 6)

From Obama’s website. Reveals connection to Shomon:
“”She is as strong and stubborn as he is,” said Dan Shomon, an aide to Obama during his unsuccessful challenge to U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) eight years ago.”

http://www.barackobama.com/2007/04/22/michelle_obama_baracks_rock.php
“After just a few years, Obama was talking about running for Congress, and thought he saw an opportunity. In 1999, black congressman Bobby Rush had challenged Richard M. Daley for mayor, and lost. Obama conducted a poll, says then-campaign manager Dan Shomon, and it suggested that some voters, particularly white ones, were looking for an alternative to Rush.”

The Case Against Barack Obama, Tony Rezko, Obama, Corruption, slum housing, Law firm boss, Alison davis, David Freddoso book, Chicago Sun Times article, developers

August 15, 2008

David Freddoso has written a book, “The Case Against Barack Obama.”
In a chapter titled “Pinstripe Patronage: Obama takes care of his
friends”, Freddoso reveals the close ties between Obama and
convicted criminal Tony Rezko. Obama has lied about the level of
associations with Rezko and has denied doing favors for him. Here
are some exerpts from “The Case Against Barack Obama”:

“In June, Chicago Sun Times reporter Tim Novak reported that
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.”
The project, Cottage View Terrace, includes ninety-seven apartments.
It is a few blocks outside of Obama’s state Senate district.

The deal for which Obama help Rezko get this money also included
Obama’s old law firm boss, Allison davis. He is also a major Obama
fundraiser and a developer who has built or renovated 1,500
apartment units in Chicago. From the $14.6 million in state funds
that Obama requested, the two men would already be expected to
profit through their housing business. But Davis and Rezko were also
to collect $855,000 of it in “developers fees.””

“Developers need friends in government. In state senator Obama, the
developers had a friend. In Springfield, he was a reliable backer and
at times even a champion of the subsidy system that made Rezko and
other Chicago slum developers wealthy building low income housing.”

Obama lied, Illinois Supreme Court, Obama Lies, Barry Soetoro, Indonesian citizenship, Birth Certificate, Religion was Islam

August 14, 2008

Need another reason to sign the Petition to Impeach Senator Obama? Obama has told the American people many lies. However, Obama has also lied on official documents. Obama apparently lied on his Bar Association application. It has recently been learned that he did not supply another name on the Attorney’s Registration and Public Disciplinary Record. The form requires “Full former Names” to be entered. It was left blank. Republicans in Hawaii have apparently obtained a copy of Obama’s birth certificate.

Here is what Obama, aka Barry Soetoro,  has kept from the America people and official documents:

Obama was an Indonesian citizen.

Obama’s official religion was Islam.

Obama at one time was a practicing Muslim.

His official name was Barry Soetoro.

Has Obama officially changed his name from Barry Soetoro to Barack Obama?

Obama Nation, Tony Rezko, Corruption charges, conviction, Jerome Corsi, Obama Corruption, Lies

August 9, 2008

One of the biggest reasons for signing the petition to Impeach Senator Obama, is the well documented, long time, close association between Barack Obama and Tony Rezko. Not only did Obama have close ties to Rezko in many areas of his personal, political and business dealings, but Obama lied about the frequency and level of his ties to Rezko.

In Jerome Corsi’s new book, “The Obama Nation”, Corsi provides a broad picture of Obama and his past. Corsi includes a section on Tony Rezko and corruption in Chicago. Here are some exerpts:

“A small army of Chicago investigative reporters have dug into the story in the last two years, producing a mountain of incriminating evidence against Barack Obama that the mainstream media have failed to make known to the American public nationwide.”

Quoting Evelyn Pringle: “Without Rezko’s fundraising, Obama would not have been elected to the Illinois Senate, or the U.S. Senate,”

“As we will soon see, Rezko’s money ties go back to the Middle East, back to one Islamic money mogul who could be fairly be described as a “bag man” to Saddam Hussein at the height of his Oil for Food scam.”

Jerome Corsi in “The Obama Nation”, provides a good introduction to Obama’s ties to crime and corruption in Chicago, Illinois and the Middle East. For more indepth knowledge of these corruption ties, search this blog and use the reference sources on the Petition site. Also when you visit the Petition site, view the signatures, but especially read the comments from Americans like you. Many people are disgusted with Obama and the main stream media.

ObamaNation, Obama, Jerome Corsi, Tony Rezko, Change, Communism, Cult of Personality, Far left, Anti Israel, Kenya, Odinga, Drugs, Jeremiah Wright

August 8, 2008

Jerome Corsi, PHD, has written a comprehensive book, Obama Nation, about Barack Obama, leftist politics and the cult of personality. The book is a great introduction to Obama and the overall aspects of his character and past. There is too much about Obama to cover in one book. A good example of this is Obama’s long time ties to corruption and crime in Chicago and Illinois. Obama’s long time close ties to Tony Rezko, recently convicted of 16 counts of corruption, are especially worth examining.

Read this great book about the real Obama, by Jerome Corsi, and then dig deeper and ask questions. Go to the petition site to Impeach Senator Obama. Check out the reference sources on Obama and the rules for removing a US Senator from office:

        A PETITION
                            for
     The Impeachment of    Senator Barack Obama


TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama is an admitted illegal drug user and
is believed to have used illegal drugs as recently as November 1999
or more recently. Mr. Obama has maintained contact with other
admitted illegal drug users.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has maintained regular contact
with known criminals such as Antoin (Tony) Rezko and other
criminal elements in Chicago and Illinois. Mr. Obama has
conducted business with these criminals and received campaign
donations from them. Mr. Obama was compelled to return an estimated $250,000 in
donations related to Tony Rezko.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has consistently lied about his
contact with convicted criminal Tony Rezko. The Tony Rezko
corruption trial revealed that 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,” according to the February
10, 2008 Chicago Sun-Times.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has engaged in unscrupulous business
practices, in particular with Mr. Robert Blackwell. Mr. Obama
received an $ 8,000 per month “legal retainer” from Mr. Blackwell
for a total of $112,000 and reported the income through his law firm
in a manner not unlike money laundering. Obama, along with Obama
campaign manager Dan Shomon, procured $ 320,000 in state grants
for Blackwell’s company Killerspin. Blackwell companies contributed
over $ 32,000 to the Obama campaign in 2007.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama used the office of IL Senator to
facilitate the vote rigging in Chicago as chairman of the Illinois Senate
Health and Human Services Committee. Mr. Obama pushed legislation in Senate Bill 1332 to reduce the number of members of the Health Facilities Planning Board from 15 to 9. Mr. Obama did conspire with Stuart Levine, Tony Rezko and Rod Blogojevich to rig the committee and was rewarded with campaign contributions. The new members appointed included 3 doctors who contributed to Mr. Obama. On April 21, 2004, Stuart Levine explicitly advised Dr. Robert Weinstein, who is now indicted, of Tony Rezko’s role in manipulating the Planning Board’s vote.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has engaged in lies and deception
about his past. Mr. Obama lied about his contact level with
convicted criminal Tony Rezko, the amounts and sources of
campaign contributions and encounters with the law. A complaint
has been filed with the Bar Association of Illinois alleging
that Mr. Obama did not answer truthfully all questions on the
application to the bar.

Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has invoked the FOIA in Illinois
when it was politically expedient and ignored or violated the
FOIA at other times. In the Illinois Senate proceedings of
Mr. Obama, in Senate Bill 1416, pleads the importance of businesses
bidding on state contracts having improved access to FOIA data. When
later questioned about his records during his term in the IL
Senate, Mr. Obama gave evasive answers or refused to supply records.

Whereas: The First Amendment provides a right for the people “to
petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Precedents
exist for impeachment and expulsion of a US Senator. Senator William
Blount was impeached by the House on July 7, 1797 and expelled by
the Senate the next day.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we, the People, Undersigned,
being citizens of the United States and residents in the Cities and States so
indicated, HEREBY Demand that the Congress of the United States begin
immediate impeachment and/or expulsion proceedings against Senator
Barack Obama.
