Did they buy the house before or after they paid off their student loans?
It is a bizarre, unprecedented, and frightening election that is occuring.
MAN, that is some “impressive” list of thugs and reprobates! Like I said, “a lifetime of unsavory associations”!
. Yes, and strictly by coincidence, they are no longer liabilities.
(Do you think that Rezko senses that HE might be a liability, and might call a newsperson, (Sean Hannity comes to mind) to arrange for a little "insurance", nyuk, nyuk, nyuk?)
Here's what you need to know about that:
That lot the Rezkos paid $625,000 for? They later sold a strip of it to Obama for $100,000 plus change (IIRC).
Here's what: When the Rezkos sold that strip, they made the lot they had just paid full price for (SIX HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR A LOT) . . . drumroll . . .
That's right. When the Rezkos sold part of their lot to Obama, their portion then became too small under the zoning rules to have anything built on it. What do you think this unbuildable lot was worth on the free market then?
No one is going to buy a lot in that neighborhood that cannot be built on.
In essence, in addition to funds to help buy the original property, the Rezkos gave the Obamas the $625,000 lot next door. Even if the Rezkos somehow sold the lot in the future, it would FOREVER remain vacant and, thus, of very great value to the Obamas and the Obamas' property value.
Getting the truth out is its own reward.
It is always valuable.
A 2004 Pentagon report identified Auchi as an Iraqi billionaire and global arms dealer “who behind the facade of legitimate business, served as Saddam Hussein’s principle international financial manipulator and bag man.”
The report states that “significant and credible evidence has been developed that Nadhmi Auchi has engaged in unlawful activities,” such as bribing “foreign governments and individuals prior to Operation Iraqi Freedom to turn opinion against the American-led mission to remove Saddam Hussein.”
Obama and top fundraiser Tony Rezko, a business partner and close friend of Auchi
He also helped “arrange for significant theft from the U.N. Oil-for-Food Program to smuggle weapons and dual-use technology into Iraq.”
Since October 2002, Obama has publicly opposed Operation Iraqi Freedom, which ousted Saddam Hussein. Auchi was a cousin of the executed dictator.
October 2002 Obama gives speech opposing war with Iraq
June 2003 Rezko holds lavish fundraiser for Obama at his Illinois mansion, providing key seed money to launch his U.S. Senate campaign
It of interest the Obama’s financial worth:
2000: The Obamas joint gross income was $240,505
It is also of interest Obama’s real estate purchases:
July 28, 1993: The Obamas made a $111,000 downpayment on the $277,500 Hyde Park condo.
January 23, 2005: The Obamas made a $330,000 downpayment on the $1.65 million Kenwood townhouse. It was $300,000 below the asking price.
There is no way the Obama’s income levels paid those down payments. Obama’s book $1.9million advance by Random House for 2 non-fictiont books and one children's book did not come until after the $300,000 downpayment was made.
The question was who helped the Obama’s and how much did they receive?
Good list. For the uninformed it would help if you let people know what all the initials stand for. Bookmarked and emailed out.
The first thing O will do is pardon Rezko.
If a small number of people around FR actually spent their time countering the proposed programs of Obama and how they will harm the economy, as well as other things, we might just get somewhere. All of these things that can not be proved by anything that would begin to pass a credibility test are an embarassment and a total waste of time.
Yeah, I know. :-)
Honestly, I did a search. I entered “Saddam” and didn’t get a hit to any recent story.
FR is a great place, but the search function has always, for me, been a source of frustration.
But maybe it’s only me, and it works for everyone else.
Anyway, I tried. Sorry for the double post. I probably need to stick to comments and leave posting to the more capable.
And, I think that is very close.
If the Obama/Ayers bunch pardons Rezko, then Mister Rezko becomes an even greater liability. (Assuming that he knows some genuine "dirt").
However, what if, though the grapevine, Rezko was PROMISED a pardon?
(Assuming, of course, he...ummm...survives to see it.)
