Posted on 05/04/2014 5:22:09 AM PDT by therightliveswithus
In a previously unpublicized transcript from 2004, the Illinois State Senate specifically linked then US Senator-Elect Barack Obama with corrupt politician and Rod Blagojevich ally Emil Jones Jr.
More than simply connecting the two, the transcript specifically calls Jones Mr. Obama's "mentor" and his "political godfather."
The transcript was written on November 8, 2004, soon after Mr. Obama was elected to the United States Senate. Ironically, the subject of the section in which the soon-to-be Senator was linked to Jones was written in praise of Mr. Obama.
The quote comes from Senate Resolution 716, which was in place to congratulate Mr. Obama on his election to the United States Senate. It lists a number of accomplishments and major life moments of the President, as well as actions he took while serving in the Illinois State Senate.
One of the accomplishments it lists, however, reads (emphasis mine):
WHEREAS, Obama was mentored by his "political godfather", Senate President Emil Jones, Jr., and inspired by his colleagues in the Illinois Senate and public officials across the StateIn case you do not know the name "Emil Jones Jr.," let me refresh your memory. Mr. Jones was the President of the Illinois State Senate during part of Mr. Obama's tenure there all the way until 2009. In 2008, he allegedly called a supporter of Hillary Clinton "an Uncle Tom." And while serving in the State Senate in Illinois, he allegedly took part in a backroom and illegal deal to receive Barack Obama's vacant US Senate seat in 2008 in exchange for political favors. Political favors for whom? Former governor and felon Rod Blagojevich. In fact, in 2007, the AP called Jones Blagojevich's "most ardent legislative ally."

Corrupt politicians in Chicago! Who knew I’m shocked.
Yes, obama is a career corruptocrat. Shocking...
It’s the “Chicongo Way”.
Corruption among politicians is so ingrained in all levels of our various governments that it has become newsworthy only when a politician is not corrupt.
Sorta the same thing as a man bites dog story.
In Illinois, we consider a politician "honest" if, after he has been bought off, remains bought off.
No Kidding... Dem’s dat keep dare yaps shut get to keep dare yaps.
You got that right, your honor. The judge understands our dilemma----w/ the Chicago kingpins of crime occupying the WH. God only knows the cons being perpetrated.
And get this: Valerie Jarrett is billed as Obama's "senior policy advisor----in Chicago gangland parlance that means "wire transfer artist"
ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHICAGOLAND (Yes, that Rev Wright) Rev Jeremiah's Wright's beloved daughter was recently caught pilfering from a $1.25 million state grant which financed a tax-exempt, not-for-profit work and education program called "We Are Our Brother's Keeper," owned by Regina Evans, former police chief of Country Club Hills, and her husband, Ronald Evans Jr.
<><> 6/8/13 Regina Evans (above) pleaded guilty to fraud and money laundering charges related to the misuse of a $1.25 million state grant to a non-profit organization she ran with her husband, Ronald Evans Jr.
BACKUP---October 11, 2011 ---- Police Chief Regina Evans Resigns
COUNTRY CLUB HILLS, Ill. (CBSLOCAL.COM) Country Club Hills Mayor said that negotiations were underway to clear the way for the resignation of police Chief Regina Evans, in office for about two years,
<><> Regina Evans was on (ahem) disability leave since August 2011,
<><> it was earlier reported that Illinois AG's office is suing Regina Evans' n/p over its handling of state job training grant worth more than $500,000.
<><> Evans also signed off on invoices for a controversial summer camp where the campers including children of aldermen who voted for it got paid to attend (Chicago-way--"redistribution of income").
<><> Most recently, Evans came under fire for overseeing a 2011 part-time police program where 10 part-time police officers were hired.... bur that many had questionable backgrounds, and werent qualified to do police work. They were ordered to turn in their guns and badges (got high-paid city sanitation jobs).

"My Brother's Keeper" scam rears its ugly head in Washington.
WASH/POST---Community lenders network commits to lend $1 billion in support of Obama's My Brothers Keeper / By Zachary A. Goldfarb, March 6, 2014
A network of (ahem) community lenders is committing to lending (?) $1 billion in support of President Obamas My Brothers Keeper initiative that aims to boost the life chances of young African and Hispanic men.
Yawn.....just goes to show: there's always a sap-happy Dem/Lib willing to say they're "for" their fellow-man---and conniving to make a buck on it.
(a) they took control of the US Census;
(b) Obama placed his COS Rahm Emanuel in control of the US Dept of the Treasury (the IRS).
THE SMOKING GUN---WSJ REPORT--On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the Obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move.
When he got to Treasury, WH COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings of the Treasury that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials. Reported by WSJ / 05/31/09

THIS MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD shortly after quitting his powerful WH job as Obama's COS, Rahm held a presser declaring he "just remembered" he really, Really wanted to be Mayor of Chicago. Then Rahm announced he had magically "raised" $10 million for his campaign in "just a matter of weeks." (waiting for hysterical laughter to die down). Ya gotta wonder how much Wall Street Rahm wired offshore when Obama put him in charge of the entire US Treasury.
Rahm Emanuel takes over Chicago / May 16, 2011
EDITED EXCERPT .... an exciting time in the inbred world of Chicago Democratic politics.... Democratic don, Richard M. Daley ruled for 22 years, inheriting the mayoralty from his father, Mayor Richard J. Daley who held on for a generation. Now the ex-chief of staff of Chicagoan Barack Obama (once a state Senator, now president) was installed. US Treasury Secy Tim Geithner was there, and so was Chicagoan David Axelrod, an O team player.
BTW, Mayor Daley's former chief of staff, Valerie Jarrett, hired Obama's wife, Michelle, to work in Chicago City Hall. Jarret is now ensconced in Washington, as Obama's chief policy advisor.
In Chicago gangland vernacular, "chief policy advisor" means "wire-transfer artist".
Mayor Emanuel's innovative ways commenced early on---his organization was getting $50G's for the best seats at the inauguration (mmmm........that accounts for another couple million scammed from Treasury).
The mayoralty (and its--cough--"benefits") is a job Emanuel has coveted since he was a machine go-fer back in the 1980s.....before he became Bill Clinton's national campaign finance chairman and then a dual role as senior White House aide and Goldman Sachs lobbyist and then (gasp) becoming a multi-millionaire, thanks to a measly few months at a local investment firm...then a (gag) Congressman for four terms---then White House chief of staff for Obama that helped create the 2010 Republican House landslide.
Rahm Emanuel honored for being an outstanding mayor.
"I gotta get outta here. Valerie just wired $50 million federal bucks to the
Chicago Sewer Authority account. I gotta create backdated invoices and line
item payments to phantom employees on the Chicago payroll so Obama's
slush fund will be fattened up when he retires."
Obama is already tied to Bill Ayers, Frank Marshal Davis, Jerimiah Wright, Tony Rezko, and many more so one more isn’t going to get attention.
Nigerian scammers, just more well connected.
