Breaking Story: Prosecutor Fitzgerald Could Send Obama To Jail
StopTheACLU.com (re: a Chicago Sun times story) ^ | October 12, 2008 | na

Posted on 10/12/2008 1:47:35 PM PDT by forYourChildrenVote4Bush

The Sun Times today gave a major clue that Barack Obama will indeed go down with Tony Rezko, sooner rather than later. It looks as though Rezko is about to turn on Alexi Giannoulias, the 30-year old State Treasurer of Illinois (who was elected only because Obama backed him).

It say’s more about some of us who enjoy a good laugh. Like many here have said , only if Fitz can tie this to Rove or some other high profile Pub , Will there ever be legal action. We are talking about Fitz after all.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Question: If he does "go down" or "step aside" or anything like that -- will we get Biden on the ticket? Or Hillary?

[Fitzgerald Could Send Obama To Jail]

If that happens, the National Guard and ALL local and state enforcement agency’s has better be on alert. If you thought the riots in Watts were disastrous, just wait for the reaction if their Messiah is arrested and jailed.

The same applies to the election results in November, as soon as the election shows The Messiah is going to lose and has lost everyone who owns guns had better make sure they are cleaned and at hand.

Wouldn’t it be deadly ironic if Charles Manson’s prophecy were to happen?

You young Freepers should read up on Spiro Agnew. Nixon’s vice president who was charged with taking bribes as a county executive and the Maryland Gov’ner. He copped a plea for just one crime, one instance of failure to include some income on his tax return in 1967, part of the deal was he would resign as Vice-President. We got Gerald Ford, not a bad President, but lost to JC.

I agree.

HOWEVER, McCain escaped the burning plane on the deck of the Forrestal, then came home from the hell of the Hanoi Hilton, then ended up with America's evangelicals praying for him to win. That's three miracles.

My sources also tell me that Dean Wormer has put Barry Obama on double secret probation. Now that’s serious!

However, there is still that federal lawsuit in Philadelphia, and the reports of solid evidence that Barry was born in Mombassa, Kenya, and has never in his life been a US citizen. I wonder how the messiah is going to get around that? The 2008 Presidential election is a political thriller to rival “The Manchurian Candidate”.

  If your going to post an article claiming the Chicago Sun Times says something... how about actually posting what the Sun Times says? 

http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/rezko/1215915,tony-rezko-obama-election-101108.article

Rezko also was friendly with Obama -- offering him a job when he finished law school, funding his earliest political campaigns and purchasing a lot next to his house. But based on the known facts, charges so far and testimony at Rezko's trial, there's no indication there'll be a so-called ''October surprise'' that could hurt the Democratic presidential nominee -- even though Rezko says prosecutors are pressing him for dirt about Obama.

Perhaps, Jesus Christ would have lost to Carter in ‘76’.

Gerald Ford would have won if he kept his promise to Paul Hall, President of the Seafarers International Union, AFL-CIO.
Ford had promised to support cargo preference legislation that would have required 20% (40%?) of all petroleum products imported into US be shipped in American built and American crewed tankers (not a good piece of legislation IMHO). Hall, also an AFL-CIO vice president and supporter of President Nixon to the very end was prepared to support Ford. Ford killed the legislation with a pocket veto after promising to support it. Hall was to say the least upset and swung the entire maritime industry including east coast longshoremen to Carter. The rest as they say is history.
But if Hall had supported Ford, he (Ford) would have carried New York state.

“This has repeatedly been posted but I see nothing about Obama and even if it does involve him it ain’t gonna happen in 3 weeks. I would love to be wrong about this.”


the way things are going, it’s very difficult to believe anyone with authority will do an honest, thorough investigation of Obama. Seems the media along with ‘the authorities’ have made Obama and his Dem cronies ‘untouchable’. God help America.

Hope we’re both wrong!

I hope you are wrong and this story is right...I have been following this story since I lived in Illinois 2 years ago and I believe it IS going to happen. This was just published 30 minutes ago and a littl different that the rest. IF Fitzgerald is going to do something and indict Obama and cronies he knows he is going to have to do it swiftly. IF Obama is elected he would be throw out. So, I think this article, with a little bit more info, is stating some facts that can’t be dismissed.

SHHESH.

Here is all the Chicago Sun Times said:

Hmmmm . . .

Sneed hears rumbles political fund-raiser/fixer Tony Rezko, who is now singing sweetly to the feds from his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, has been talking about his "dealings" with a Chicago bank, which has political connections.

Seems like a lot of reading between the lines on behalf of the blogger.

Agreed, but some of the MSM have a small remembrance of their innocent youth when they weren't corrupted and had some semblance of right from wrong. If the corruption of OBama becomes to be overwhelming, plus McCain starts to close the gap, I think some will jump the Shark to keep up the facade of impartiality and credibility.

Just for a second, imagine what the headlines would read if Sarah had been friends with Timothy McVeigh. Or had served on a board and steered government money toward the man who bombed an Abortion Clinic. Or if the 'first dude' had a job at a hospital and Sarah had arranged for a big grant to go to the hospital and Todd's pay increased within a month to hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Or if McCain was involved with an organization that shamelessly committed voter fraud in swing states? Do you think the New York Times would give a flip? YOU can bet your last dollar on it. They would be on those stories like white on rice.

Well, flip it and it's all true of Obama and there isn't a peep.

And so, I don't agree with you DAC - the only time the MSM would make any effort whatsoever to be "fair" is if they knew for a fact that Obama had it and couldn't lose. They they'd throw in some of the "other side" to make themselves look good in their own eyes. Think putting in the second team when you're so far ahead you can't lose... No, the fearless members of the MSM are afraid to stand alone - or to stand truthfully. They're the equivalent of a state controlled press only they've given up their freedom voluntarily.

Oh, I genuinely hope this story is so....and the true story of Obama and his past history and associations will be explored and exposed.

After the Scooter Libby case, Fitzgerald is not high on my hit parade and I wonder about his allegiances. I’m not convinced of his objectivity. Sorry for being so cynical.....I TRULY hope something will happen to awaken the many Americans who are not paying attention to what Mr. Obama has in store for America.

Tony is due to get his sentence exactly 1 week before the election on Nov 4. He got one delay of sentencing already. I don’t think he will get another. He is trying to lighten his sentence by giving up more info, IMO.
I think Nobama is deeply tied to the Illinois state treasurer Tony might squeal on. That could lead to a rolling over onto Nobama.

Tony better be very careful whereever he is. Arkancide seems to be able to spread.

Tony's judge or his prosecutor could have an accident that would delay sentencing until after Nov 4. I am very skeptical that this will work out in time, but it could.

You could be right. I just received a telephone call from two black conservative Republicans that discussed the Obama speech in Philly yesterday that touched on all of the words of the Black Liberation Movement of the 60’s — Malcom X, Eldgredge Cleaver and others which called for taking to the streets and led to the riots in the 60’s by blacks all over the US. He said the words “hoodwinked” and “bamboozled” are code words within the black community that whitey is out to take down the blacks. He thought the speech was strange for someone that kept saying he was ahead because it called for riots if he loses.

Would blacks riot if Obama goes down in a Rezko investigation?

Also was told the ads on Ayers need to also have Timothy McVeigh to compare Ayers acts with the WeatherUnderground when they bombed federal buildings to the acts of another domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh who bombed the federal building in Oklahoma City. In all instances people died at the hands of the Weather Underground headed by Ayers and Dohrn and McVeigh. He said the ads will resonate with today’s generation that Obama hangs out today with the same type of people who became his mentor.

He said if we had a J. Edgar Hoover at the FBI this would not be happening. We have weak Administration and the DOJ has become a bad joke.

DiD Obama return to Chicago last night to be with his children knowing this was coming or was it the affair?

Anyway you slice it, this Country is in for worst of times.
