Andy Martin, bump!
We had him as our guest speaker about 2 weeks ago.
He went over this entire money laundering scheme with Blackwell.
‘SMOKING GUN’ PROMPTS ANDY MARTIN TO SAY OBAMA SHOULD WITHDRAW AS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE
(NEW YORK)(April 27, 2008) The disclosure today in the Los Angeles Times that Barack Obama laundered money through a law firm to conceal the source of his income while an Illinois state senator is the ‘smoking gun’ that is going to doom his candidacy. www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-killerspin27apr27, ..
Barack Obama should withdraw as a presidential candidate. Immediately. The latest evidence of his professional corruption is going to doom the Democratic Party.
Although the L. A. Times’ reporters have tried to present Obama’s crooked deal in a fair and balanced way, there is no way you can avoid the conclusion that the substance of the transaction was intended to conceal that Obama was engaging in political money laundering to disguise the source of his income. Obama is exposed as just another corrupt African-American legislator in Illinois cutting deals for other African-Americans. Is it any wonder he became the protégé of sleazy Senator Emil Jones in the Illinois senate?
Why was Obama’s Blackwell deal ‘money laundering?’ The L. A. Times story is not clear on that point. Laundering was involved because Obama used ‘disclosure’ to conceal the source of his income while a public official. Obama’s game also exposes that in Illinois even good government types, such as Cynthia Canary, can be corrupted. Canary tries to whitewash something that she would strongly condemn if the practice had been engaged in by any other legislator. In other words, Obama has even managed to corrupt Canary and the integrity of her organization. It’s disgusting.
Obama’s ‘client,’ Robert Blackwell, Jr. was also an operative in the machinations of crooked Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, www.eki-consulting.com/APPS/EKIHP1.nsf/Content/BE14CC6D3CE402558 ..
The Times details how Obama was still ‘of counsel’ to his former law firm, but that he was not providing any services to that entity. Then Obama made a deal with Blackwell, and wanted to conceal that Blackwell was supporting him. So Obama ‘laundered’ the ‘legal fees’ by running them through the law firm and then issuing a list of the law firm’s clients-none of which had anything to do with Obama—to disguise the Blackwell money in a laundry list of hundreds of unrelated ‘clients.’ This was a classic case of money laundering and business fraud. Obama wanted to conceal the large sum he was receiving from Blackwell, so he concealed that Blackwell was the source of his income by pretending he was providing services to the law firm’s other clients. Utter fraud. ‘Barry O’ ain’t stupid, he’s slicky and tricky, and he’s a ticking time bomb for the Democratic Party.
Since the law firm had nothing to do with Blackwell, and was merely acting as a conduit for legal fees for Obama, this example shows that Obama was nothing but just another crooked Illinois politician.
Obama’s ‘law firm’ was also guilty of professional misconduct, because the lawyers knew that Obama had not provided services through the law firm, and was merely using the firm to obscure the fact that the major source of his personal income was one client on whose behalf Obama was later to advocate (there may have been earlier informal advocacy than the senate letter which has surfaced).
Time and time again, Obama’s law firm stands guilty of being exposed for sleazy professional tactics and gross conflicts of interest. Obama’s law firm was nothing more than a college of corruption for money laundering, conflicts of interests and other inappropriate professional behavior; and a collection of crooked lawyers that were stealing and concealing at every opportunity. Is it any wonder that honest lawyers get a bad name when crooked operatives such as Obama play games and use the law to conceal the source of their income?
Since the law firm had no relationship with Blackwell, running Obama’s fees through the firm was false and fraudulent. Since Obama had nothing to do with the law firm’s other clients, using a list of hundreds of unrelated clients to obscure that only one of those “clients” was paying him money was federal criminal mail fraud as well as a corruption of the ethics rules in Illinois. That Cynthia Canary tries to whitewash such blatant corruption shows that she has lost all sense of ethics and legitimacy when Obama is the one stealing the money. What’s her link?
Finally, the L. A. Times article leaves unanswered the big question: what legal work did Obama do to earn $112,000? He has never disclosed that he was working half-time for Blackwell, and there is no paper trail or track record of Obama having ever done any legal services to earn such a substantial sum. Before today, no one knew of the massive Blackwell-Obama connection. So where is the evidence of providing legal services to earn the money? I am going to be asking for an FBI investigation later this week.
Barry ‘Barack’ Obama: just one more crooked Illinois politician. He’s a disgrace to the good, honest hard working people of Illinois.
Four years ago I disclosed that Obama was a fraud artist. I didn’t know at the time just how true my conclusions were, or how expansive and extensive Obama’s corruption really was. A big thanks to the L. A. Times for providing the ‘smoking gun’ to document just how utterly sleazy Barack Obama has been in his professional life.
Obama should immediately withdraw as a presidential candidate. The ‘honest graft’ that Obama engineered with Robert Blackwell, Jr. is going to doom the Democratic Party in November. Any delegate, pledged, super or otherwise, who supports Obama for president after disclosure of the Barnhill/Blackwell caper, has a death wish for the Democrats in November.
[Note: this column has focused on the crass political corruption Obama engineered to conceal the source of his income, and the way ‘good government’ types such as Cynthia Canary are providing ‘cover’ for Obama’s corruption. The fact that Obama used his senate letterhead to gain money for his client is just one more angle of the same slimy story. Using his senate office for his client is self-evident; the use of a professional firm to launder and conceal that his major source of income was only one person, Blackwell, is not so obvious, which is why this column has concentrated on that aspect of the L. A. Times’ revelations. The ‘senate letterhead’ aspects, however, are no less important for what they reveal about Obama’s “play to play’ operations in Illinois politics.] Obama was just an African-American Tony Rezko. Is it any wonder the two were so close for decades?]
And is it any wonder that Barack Obama is now afraid to debate, given the latest sleaze cascading out of his past?

They let their law licenses lapse? (say that 3 times fast).
How did you find this out?

Thanks very much.

Myrddin, I don’t see any information regarding Michelle Obama laundering money. I’m immensely curious as to why Michelle’s law license was inactivated in 1993. She passed the bar in 1989 and by 1993 she was no longer licensed to practice.
There’s not much information out there about this at all. In fact, even Wikipedia is lacking the information and refers to her as a lawyer.
Pinging to Calpernia’s comment #52.
She was only at Sidley Austin until 1991. Then she latched onto Valerie Jarrett (huge Chicago Machine bigwig) who's now prominent on Obama’s campaign. By 1993, another job change to head up “Public Allies Chicago” and she's no longer licensed to practice law.
I'm totally intrigued.
Not pingin’ anyone, because I really do want to get offline, NOW. ;’)
Thanks, Myrddin. We have Weathermen redux with Obama and crew.
FYI, here in Chicago - word is that if Obama wins the presidency then Chicago gets the Olympics.
Follow the money. Olympics are big bucks for Chicago.
The Chicago Olympic Committee powers that be and Obama powers that be - are one and the same.
Interesting that Obama has brought a high-powered DISTRACTOR MASTER to the fight......can’t win on merits???
How about hanging out with this guy??
How about Obama openly campaigning for his communist cousin Odinga who signed a pact with Muslims to enact Sharia Law if elected and started riots when he lost. Obama campaigned for an openly Anti-American candidate in a foreign country in 2006.
Pretty, thank you devolve.
Earlier today I was gathering up some of the links to send on to Andy Martin and when I went to one particular bookmark I got a message “Article not found”. The article appeared in a Dubai newspaper AND has never appeared in any media in North America. I had to do a search for the article and I hope someone can save it or do something so it doesn’t disappear again like so many other articles have in the past few months! Here is the link:
From a headline appearing on the link originally posted for this article the paper in Dubai is warning people to be very afraid of Sarah Palin!
Oops must be Monday forgot to include the title of one of the most read articles for today for that Dubai paper:
Listen to what Sarah Palin is saying and then be afraid
Thank you, Chief Engineer, quite a find.
Listen to what Sarah Palin is saying and then be afraid
By James Zogby

Mrs Palins recitation of her lessons revealed a raw and unfiltered neo-conservative view of the world. It is, at times, banal and oversimplified; but it is also, in many ways, perfectly clear.
It is absolutist and Manichean. There is good (us) and evil (them). We stand for democracy and the spirit of freedom that is found in every human heart. Since the clash between good and evil is both desirable and inevitable, our role is to bring our values to a waiting world and defeat evil. And, in this conflict, our victory is preordained.
Compromise with evil is unthinkable and so traditional forms of diplomacy are to be rejected as a sign of weakness and surrender. In this world view, diplomacy means working with those who agree with us, not finding ways to bridge differences with those with whom we disagree.
Simple? Yes, but also dangerous. This was the world-view embraced by the current administration, especially during its first term. (It is the consequences of this disastrous course that the Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, has worked diligently, if unsuccessfully, to correct.)
And, despite its many failures, it appears that this hard-line neocon course is embraced by Governor Palins running mate and his advisers.
This is why I say that it is important to listen to what she does say, not how badly she says it. And dont make fun: be afraid.
Long article; archived on the long thread, too.

Gosh. Zogby says that like it’s a BAD thing...
Please make sure you save both articles with C&P or as a screen capture or they will very quickly disappear! After the weekend of many dead ends believe me the scrubbing is ongoing and with an old, slow small hard drive on this laptop I haven’t got the ability to save and no ink at the moment to print out!

DNC JOINS OBAMA TO BLOCK BERG SUIT By Jon Christian Ryter(This article is a rewrite of last week’s article on Philip J. Berg’s lawsuit to force Barack Obama
October 7, 2008
By Jon Christian Ryter
October 7, 2008
Author’s Note: This article is a rewrite of last week’s article on Philip J. Berg’s lawsuit to force Barack Obama to produce a certified copy of his original birth certificate. On Sept. 24 the DNC filed a motion to dismiss the Berg action, which sent Berg scrambling to file a response, which was filed on Sept. 29, providing the date and material which led to my confusion that the order had been signed. Accept my mea culpas. The moment I realized the error I called News With Views and had the article pulled, and posted a recant on my website as well. Here is the most current information on the case, taken from court documents. Jon Christian Ryter

This continues to get buried with other things until Palin and McCain say it during press coverage and keep saying it. Another “Form 180” issue for the Dem nominee.
Thank you for the ping, an excellent article.
Thanks for the ping!
..................Doesnt someone have to produce a valid birth
certificate to acquire a US passport?
Absolutely yes! For my first passport about 30 years ago, I had to visit the Queens Co NY vital records dept, wait around, wait around, wait around, until the shuffling employee produced a duplicate copy of my Birth Cert.
Then I had to present that to the Passport officials, and wait around, and wait around, and wait around, until I finally got a passport.
Maybe it’s easier now. Maybe if you speak broken English and show up wearing a shirt and shoes, you’re deemed passport material!
I will bet your first Passport was blue and
I did not have to have a birth certificate
when I got mine over 40 years ago.
I did have several ID proofs but I have
never had a BC.
I went through the Army and school without one
and I did have to get people to swear they
knew me all my life to get my passport with.
Some people born in the thirties or earlier
were born at home and not put into the system.
“Do not call someone a liar based on your short
and dumb information.
I will bet your first Passport was blue and
When I said that getting a passport was a serious pain in the A$$................
Another Freeper recently posted:
“”I had to personally go to a NYC hospital archives for them to drag up a copy of my birth certificate before applying for a passport””!
So before you call me a “dumb, and possibly a liar”.....
I’ll take an apology anytime that you’re up to it!
(BTY, it was Green)
RUSH IS DISCUSSING THE Mysterious BIRTH CERTIFICATE issue right now.
Kenya, Berg, granny, dual-citizenship, etc. all mentioned.
Cats out of the bag.........
I’ve been saying it for a year to anyone who would listen. They think I am a tinfoil candidate. But, if you look at Ayers manifesto “Prairie Fire”:
“We are a guerrilla organization. We are communist women and men, underground in the United States for more than four years. We are deeply affected by the historic events of our time in the struggle against U.S. imperialism.
Our intention is to disrupt the empire, to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks, to make it hard to carry out its bloody functioning against the people of the world, to join the world struggle, to attack from the inside.
