Key Blagojevich Witness Dead

Posted by Admin on September 14, 2009

NOTE: I thought I had posted this yesterday, but I guess it remained only a draft?!?!  Apologies for that.

A posting on the Chicago Tribune website states that sources tell them a key witness in the former-Governor Blagojevich’s corruption case regarding the US Senate seat is dead.

Christopher Kelly, who cited Federal Attorney pressure in his decision to plead guilty recently in regards to charges against him, is reportedly dead at the age of 51 years old.  He was due to testify for the government in the upcoming Blagojevich trial on corruption charges that arose from an alleged “pay-to-play” scheme on the part of Blagojevich in naming a replacement for Obama in Congress.

Here’s link to the entry at the Chicago Tribune Website:

Obama’s Contradictions and Lies about HIMSELF!

Posted by Admin on September 26, 2008

Hello loyal readers,

I’m sure most of you, like me, watched the debate between Sen. John McCain, and Sen. Barack Obama tonight.  It was certainly interesting…

At this moment I am going back through the debate, and having a great time picking out all the lies, inconsistencies, and contradictions made by Obama tonight.  While I’ve got a pretty long list already, I’d like to give my readers an opportunity to add to it!

So, if you remember a specific comment made by Obama that you know to be a (so-called) “mis-statement”, please feel free to make a comment below.  (Comments are moderated, so I will check back periodically as I’m doing my research to approve respectful comments).

If you are an Obama supporter running across this post, I’d like to hear from you as well – as long as you keep it clean, and respectful.  Was there something that you believe McCain said that wasn’t true about Obama?  If so, please submit that as well.  I will do my best to be fair in rebutting your charges against him with facts, and citations for my sources (the same as I will be doing to prove my case against Obama).

Ok, well I’ve got a LOT of stuff to go through right now, and some research to complete so I’ll wrap up this particular post.  If you run across anything else that you feel is important that I should include in my summation of the debate, please feel free to comment on that as well — or add your comments on the debate itself!  As I said – as long as it’s respectful, I welcome comments by Obama supporters (or Libertarians, or Greens, or any other party’s supporters) as well.

Take care for now everyone, and I’ll try to post my summation within the next few hours, if not in the morning.

VIDEO: What Caused Our Economic Crisis?

Posted by Admin on September 26, 2008

I don’t have a lot of time to write tonight, but I did want to share this video.  It goes a little fast in some places, so you may wish to have your mouse above the pause button, but this particular video is packed with excellent research and facts surrounding our current economic crisis, and the varied causes behind it…

Oh, and as for this “bailout”?  NO WAY, NO HOW!  We CANNOT let Congress foist this socialist plan upon us.  Plain and simple – it’s economic terrorism. More about that tomorrow if I have time.  Otherwise, I would definitely suggest doing as much reading as you can about these proposed plans, they are NOT what they seem!

According to a new report from Drudge the whole IM incident that has been the impetus for Foley’s resignation and the current attack on Hastert and the Republican party was a prank initiated by a group of pages intent on embarassing Foley.

~ SPECIAL REPORT: ABC LIES! IM “teen” an ADULT – hires McVeigh’s Criminal Defense Lawyer…

Posted by Admin on October 5, 2006

UPDATED – 10:15 a.m. Central Time – October 5, 2006
     
Dear Readers,
     
First, let me say that I have no compassion for Mr. Foley if he indeed took advantage of his position and authority to have sexual contact with a minor – regardless of the other details like his homosexuality and all – that doesn’t even matter at this point (as in if he’s guilty he needs to be held accountable).
     
BUT, it seems that Foley did NOT have sexually explicit exchanges with a minor at all, but rather an adult who was over 18 years old!
     
Apparently ABC Online accidently printed an unredacted copy of an IM between Mark Foley and the person the media has been saying was underage was 18 years old, and an adult when the sexually explicit IMs that have been all over the media were exchanged.
     
Perhaps the most disturbing part of all of this now is why did ABC’s Brian Ross lie about this? And, why now are they not correcting their mistake, but instead focusing on how this affects the Republican party, Hastert, and the upcoming election. If this whole scandal is based on non-factual information, then what is really going on here? It is not acceptable for our media to mislead the public especially about charges as serious as pedophilia!
     
I do admit that I haven’t been following this story closely at all, but this latest article out of Oklahoma that has come to my attention is very interesting, IMHO. It has got me wanting to find out more about this whole scandal, and what I’m learning is shocking. I’m personally wondering why Mr. Edmund, who exchanged the IMs with Foley and claims to be a victim, feels he needs a criminal defense lawyer? Why is he not getting a trial lawyer specializing in sexual abuse/assault cases on retainer instead?
