Typical Chicago Politics Will Come Back To Haunt Obama ( New Revelations from London )
Flopping Aces ^ | Feb 26, 2008 9:24 am | Curt

Posted on 02/26/2008 11:59:34 AM PST by Ernest_at_the_Beach

While the NYT’s prints a foolish attack piece with lots of innuendo about the Republican nominee, they remain silent on a story that is quite big AND has plenty of evidence to suggest wrongdoing.

Something which you can bet your bottom dollar will see the light of day over and over and over again if Obama is the nominee.

No fawning over the Messiah by the English press here. Hell, they even put up a picture of Obama that isn’t flattering:

obama385_288856a.jpg

The story itself is well done, but can get convoluted at times with all the figures. Here is the cast. First up is Nadhmi Auchi, a European billionaire with a scandalous past:

From the Times Article:

Mansion 'mistake' piles the pressure on Barack Obama

******************************EXCERPTS**************************

A British-Iraqi billionaire lent millions of dollars to Barack Obama's fundraiser just weeks before an imprudent land deal that has returned to haunt the presidential contender, an investigation by The Times discloses.

The money transfer raises the question of whether funds from Nadhmi Auchi, one of Britain’s wealthiest men, helped Mr Obama buy his mock Georgian mansion in Chicago.

A company related to Mr Auchi, who has a conviction for corruption in France, registered the loan to Mr Obama's bagman Antoin "Tony" Rezko on May 23 2005. Mr Auchi says the loan, through the Panamanian company Fintrade Services SA, was for $3.5 million.

Three weeks later, Mr Obama bought a house on the city's South Side while Mr Rezko's wife bought the garden plot next door from the same seller on the same day, June 15.

Mr Obama says he never used Mrs Rezko's still-empty lot, which could only be accessed through his property. But he admits he paid his gardener to mow the lawn.

Mrs Rezko, whose husband was widely known to be under investigation at the time, went on to sell a 10-foot strip of her property to Mr Obama seven months later so he could enjoy a bigger garden.

Mr Obama now admits his involvement in this land deal was a “boneheaded mistake”.

Mrs Rezko’s purchase and sale of the land to Mr Obama raises many unanswered questions.

It is unclear how Mrs Rezko could have afforded the downpayment of $125,000 and a $500,000 mortgage for the original $625,000 purchase of the garden plot at 5050 South Greenwood Ave.

In a sworn statement a year later, Mrs Rezko said she got by on a salary of $37,000 and had $35,000 assets. Mr Rezko told a court he had "no income, negative cash flow, no liquid assets, no unencumbered assets [and] is significantly in arrears on many of his obligations."

Mrs Rezko, whose husband goes on trial on unrelated corruption charges in Chicago on March 3, refused to answer questions about the case when she spoke by telephone to The Times.

Let's first burn the blue dress, remove all DNA stains from the oval office, and put a stake through the heart cavity of the bitch and BJ. Place garlic in their mouths, burn the corpses and scattered their ashes in molten steel.

Next, we can deal with the flop eared mooselimb thief from Al Capone's den of crooked politicians.

Osamaobama is a communist thief, but he is a rank amateur when compared to the klintoons.

Just me how a guy goes from nothing to a 1.65 million dollar house even with a wife making $150,000 a year. It doesn’t happen; at that income the IRS is taking 35%. It doesn’ take a rocket scientist to figure out something is rotten in his finances.

Unfortunately, this info can only be made available in some country other than the USA. It probably should a law prohibiting any negative publicity in any place where Obama campaigned, campaigns at the moment or plans to.

The Clintons had James Riyadi. And Obama has Nadhmi Auchi.

Appears the Democratic Party is a wholly-owned subsidiary of foreign zillionaires. (Gee, I hope McCain doesn’t repudiate the preceding statement as offensive to the Democrats.)

WILL DIRTY CHICAGO POLITICS BE THE UNDOING OF OBAMA?
Right-Wing Nut House ^ | Feb. 26, 2008 | by Rick Moran
Posted on 02/26/2008 7:52:35 AM PST by jdm

************************EXCERPT*********************

Where is the wisdom of Mike Royko when you need it?

Royko was by far Chicago’s most beloved political columnist. His scathingly brilliant, uproariously funny writings on the Chicago political machine not only shone a light in the dark corners of corruption, favoritism, and mobbed up businesses of Richard J. Daley’s City Hall, he had fun doing it.

A small sample:

More from link at post #17:

*********************EXCERPTS*************************

Auchi is emerging as a key figure in the corruption trial of Rezko and also played a part in one of Rezko’s attempts to exploit his relationship with Obama. Obama denies he ever did any favors for Rezko or his associates but the crooked Obama fundraiser told prosecutors that after Auchi gave him another “loan,” he asked Obama to intervene with the State Department in order to get a visa for Auchi who was being denied entry into the US:

Prosecutors say that, after Mr Auchi was unable to enter the United States in 2005, Mr Rezko approached the US State Department to get him a visa and apparently asked “certain Illinois government officials to do the same.” Mr Obama denies he was approached. Mr Auchi’s lawyer has emphasised to The Times that it would be entirely false to imply that money had been lent by GMH to Mr Rezko in return for Mr Rezko seeking to assist Mr Auchi to obtain a visa. The two men’s relationship, the lawyer stressed, was a busines s one.

Just who is this guy Auchi?

Allow me to introduce you to Nadhmi Auchi. He was charged in the 1950s with being an accomplice of Saddam Hussein, when the future tyrant was acquiring his taste for blood. He was investigated in the 1980s for his part in alleged bribes to the fabulously corrupt leaders of post-war Italy. In the 1990s, the Belgium Ambassador to Luxembourg claimed that Auchi’s bank held money Saddam and Colonel Gadaffi had stolen from their luckless peoples. In 2002, officers from the Serious Fraud Squad raided the offices of one of Auchi’s drug companies as part of an investigation of what is alleged to be the biggest swindle ever of the NHS. With allegations, albeit unproven, like these hanging over him, wouldn’t you think that British MPs would have the sense to stay away?

Perhaps you would, but I forgot to add a final fact about Mr Auchi: he is the thirteenth-richest man in Britain, and he has been able to collect British politicians the way other people collect stamps.

First of all, his business dealings make Rezko’s kickback schemes for political contributions look like the minor leagues of sleaze. Auchi had a hand in the biggest political and corporate scandal in post war Europe, the so-called “Elf Affair” where $2 billion francs up and disappeared from the French state oil company Elf.

Very good news for Republicans, politically.

This is probably not going to be a definitive campaign-killer, but at least it is likely to be effective in achieving dirt-parity when it comes down to McCain vs Obama. McCain has a long and vulnerable track record otherwise vis-a-vis Obama, which was one of my major worries with respect to this match-up.

McCain has no worries vs Clinton of course. Any dirt on McCain could have been called and raised anytime.

Barack Hussein Obama is a very dangerous charlatan. He was elected to the US Senate under dubious means that involved the release to the MSM of previously sequestered divorce records that undermined his opponent. This left-wing radical is not what the guilt-ridden white liberals think he is. His election would drive the US into the ground economically and make it open season on Americans everywhere for the islamic jihadis. It is the duty of all people who care for the US to drive this message home to folks considering voting for this fraud.

“Obama has indicated willingness to end federal oversight of the Teamsters [& gets Hoffa endorsement]” ~ Robert Novak 2/23/08 [Crumbling Ohio Firewall]
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1974928/posts

*

This is a column from The Times of Northwest Indiana.

BY MARK KIESLING
Times Columnist | Monday, February 25, 2008 |
http://www.nwi.com/articles/2008/02/25/columnists/mark_kiesling/doc297cac7c5a2c0929862573f9001e42cb.txt

The television above the bar at Chris’ Place was filled with the talking heads of various politicians who hope they will one day soon be anointed to carry their party’s standard in November.

Phil the Teamster, who is scrupulous about having a cold one only after all his deliveries have been made and his rig safely back in the yard, held up some exotic brew to eye level and gazed at one of the heads though a reddish haze.

“I have never voted for a Republican in my life,” said Phil. “But if Barack Obama wins the Democratic nomination, I am voting for John McCain.”

The bar, never a particularly noisy place, went as silent as death.

We knew Phil was a Hillary Clinton sort of fellow, but we never dreamed he would ever think of pulling the GOP lever under any circumstances. He is strictly an unreconstructed union man.

He’s also no racist. He lives in an integrated neighborhood and judges each person on merit, not pigmentation. So The Senator, whose idea of exotic beer is Old Style in a Miller Lite glass, asked him why.

“He’s a Crook County politician, that’s why,” Phil said. Stan the Bartender mouthed the word “Cook” from behind his unlit cigar.

“I said Crook, and I meant Crook,” Phil said. “This guy is from Chicago. He sounds smooth, and he might have the rest of the country fooled, but he doesn’t fool me. You don’t come from Chicago and go that far that fast without owing somebody something.”

Well, he has been seen palling around with indicted businessman and influence peddler Tony Rezko, who also is a buddy of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. But does that make Obama the third person of the Unholy Trinity?

“I’ll tell you another thing,” said Mark the Cop, who was on his usual seat by the door. “If Obama or Hillary get in, that’s the end of any kind of federal investigation into corruption in Northwest Indiana.”

It is local lore that Republican-named U.S. attorneys go after corruption in this county in which Democrats have held every countywide office since 1931 and Democrat-named U.S. attorneys have other priorities, let us say.

No one denies this. The Republicans say they come in to clean house. The Democrats say the Republicans come in to impose a political agenda.

Phil judges McCain the way he does other people, on merit. A Vietnam vet, Phil has a soft spot for a guy who spent years as a North Vietnamese POW, even if he is a Republican.

His heart says McCain. His loyalty says Clinton. But his gut says not Obama.

The opinions are solely those of the writer. He can be reached at markk@nwitimes.com or (219) 933-4170.

From deep in the Times (UK) story:

*********************EXCERPT*******************

The spotlight fell on Mr Rezko's ties to Mr Auchi last month when the Chicago businessman was thrown in jail for violating his bail terms by failing to declare a different $3.5 million loan from the British billionaire, made in April 2007. Prosecutors feared Mr Rezko, who travels widely in the Middle East, might flee to a country without an extradition treaty such as his birthplace of Syria.

Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left
(Paperback) by David Horowitz (Author)

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

an a review:

505 of 597 people found the following review helpful:
5.0 out of 5 stars Vastly Illuminating, September 25, 2004
By  Kat Bakhu (Albuquerque, NM United States) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.

It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.

Individual chapters are included on the Patriot Act (I was persuaded that it is a GOOD thing); the democratic flip-flop on Iraq once G.W. Bush implemented what they agreed with Clinton needed to be done; the driving components of the current anti-war movement; as well as chapters on individual personalities who are major spokespeople of the Left. Horowitz covers a lot of ground, and he covers it concisely and clearly. Unholy Alliance is richly informative without ever being boring or plodding.

This book is so illuminating that I simply cannot do justice to it here. I love people who reason so clearly that they help me get my own reasoning clear. Horowitz is just that type of person! In the terrain of mindless clichés (no-blood-for-oil, etc.), he is a breath of real fresh air.
