Blogging for Liberty: Obama’s Ties to Governor Blago (with comments by the monkey)

Obama’s Ties to Governor Blago

Sorry, the story was so unbelievable that I thought my facts were wrong. Well, it is worse than I thought!

Tony Rezco’s wife, Rita Rezko was the agent who bought one of the two connected properties when the big O purchased his house, and the Governor’s wife, Patti Blagojevich, was the real estate agent who helped Obama buy the house! What a coincidence!

Patricia Blagojevich

 

Scandal Puts Governor’s Wife in Spotlight

By DON BABWIN

The first lady may have been introduced to the public by profanity-laced tirades as outlined by federal prosecutors, but she already was being investigated for her real-estate dealings.

Patti Blagojevich is both a businesswoman whose lucrative real estate deals have raised questions about whether her position as first lady helped her make a lot of money and a key player in a family drama between two powerful politicians

..(and guess what AP left out of their story, but I am sure it was completely innocent! Rezco’s wife was the agent who bought one of the two connected properties when the big O purchased his house…but don’t worry, Obama didn’t know she was buying the other half;  so no need to publish this connection..Who was the agent for Obama in this deal? Why it was the Governor’s wife of course.

Just a little archival knowledge to help you guys remember the facts:

In 2005 Obama purchased a new home in the Kenwood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (which was $300,000 below the asking price but represented the highest offer on the property; so not a big deal). However,on the same day Rezko’s wife, Rita Rezko, purchased the adjoining empty lot from the same sellers for the full asking price.

Obama acknowledged bringing his interest in the property to Rezko’s attention, but denied any coordination of offers.

According to Obama, while the properties had originally been a single property, the previous owners decided to sell the land as two separate lots, but made it a condition of the sales that they be closed on the same date. Obama also stated that the properties had been on the market for months, that his offer was the best of two bids, and that Ms. Rezko’s bid was matched by another offer, also of $625,000, so that she could not have purchased the property for less.Obama’s description of the purchase was later confirmed by the previous owner of the house.

In 2006 Obama purchased a 10 foot (3.0 m) wide strip of Ms. Rezko’s property for $104,500, $60,000 above the assessed value. According to Chicago Sun-Times columnist, Mark Brown, “Rezko definitely did Obama a favor by selling him the 10-foot strip of land, making his own parcel less attractive for development.” Obama acknowledges that the exchange may have created the appearance of impropriety, and stated “I consider this a mistake on my part and I regret it.”

Tony Rezko  and Mr. O

Oh, Obama said he was sorry. Well let us forgive him them; after all, he is such a great speaker!

Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

Now hang on to your seat.

Kennedy was shot in a car called ‘ Lincoln ‘ made by ‘Ford.’

Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater.

Kennedy was once (maybe more)  in Marilyn Monroe.

 

Blogging for Liberty: Stimulus Math Facts by “mlaconsult” (with comments by the monkey)

Stimulus Math Facts

By mlaconsult (additional comments by the monkey)
2/6/2009, 8:30 pm 

I don’t know if anyone has done this, but do this math: 

If we want to “help” 5,000,000 (5 million) unemployed people, which I think is about double the number of lost jobs in the past few months, what would happen if the government just wrote them all an annual check for $50,000?

It would be 5,000,000 x  $50,000 = $250,000,000,000.  ($250 billion).

In other words, instead of a $900 billion “stimulus” package that helps almost nobody, the government could simply give 5 million unemployed people annual checks for $50,000 for 3 years, and still be LESS than the “stimulus” bill.

How about just giving every person who has lost his job in the past 6 months and is still unemployed a one-time check equal to their pervious salary before they were laid off?

Why not? Because it is NOT about helping people, it is about gleaning power.

Remember, 2/3 of the money the Administration controls from bailouts and “Stimuli” is unspent ($4.6 trillion from bailouts, $515 billion from “Stimulus bill”, and $18 billion from the Stimulus bill-Part Deux-a.k.a. “Jobs bill”; total= $5.12 trillion).

The Administration will pay out as much money as needed to buy the votes necessary to ensure reelection for the politicians of the OBAMANATION.

We have our work cut out for us; so plan to give some of your time to help at the grassroots level (because we cannot out spend them).

Blogging for Liberty: The 17th Amendment

Before 1913, the Constitution mandated that U.S. senators be appointed by each of the states. This was the best and wisest system, as it eliminated voting FRAUD and a candidate for the Senate did not have to be rich in order to pay for an election campaign.

The 17th Amendment changed all that, and allowed for the direct election of senators by the general population. Senate seats  have now devolved into national popularity contests, and the people elected don’t necessarily represent the interests of there state!

Blogging for Liberty: The Anti-American

Blogging for Liberty: Mussolini Would Be Proud!

The Treasury Department will “temporarily withhold” payments to the nation’s three largest mortgage companies for “failing to comply with the Obama administration’s signature foreclosure-prevention effort,” perhaps finally making good on a 19-month-old threat, Administration officials announced Thursday.

Bank of America, Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase, which together service about half of all home loans in the United States,  were said by the OBAMANATION to have “abused homeowners and violated the rules of the Making Home Affordable (MHA) program.”

Obama’s initiative proports to lower monthly payments, reduce loan balances or enable distressed borrowers to sell their homes before they are seized. The OBAMANATION ostensibly plans to accomplish this feat of magic by awarding a series of incentive payments to banks, investors and homeowners when foreclosures are averted.

Of course, our fearless leader is only withholding pay to the three biggest banks, but his message is loud, and the remaining six of the 10 largest mortgage companies that were audited were found to need “moderate improvement” (code for “we know were you live).

The OBAMANATION first identified potential  non-compliance in November 2009, warning the participating companies that those failing to meet their obligations to homeowners under their contracts with the federal government “will be subject to consequences which could include monetary penalties and sanctions.” But the punishment that has been so long in coming may be short-lived: Treasury will return the money it is withholding from the three banks once the banks make the changes the Administration wants. Yes, fascists punish those who fall out of line!

“If they fix the problem, they will get the money,” said Tim Massad, Treasury’s acting assistant secretary for financial stability, during a conference call with reporters. He added that Treasury had conducted 400 “compliance reviews,” but I prefer to call them  just a shakedown cruise.

Blogging for Liberty: Global Warning is Pure Subterfuge

Global Warning

Sulpher dioxide injected into the stratosphere by Mount Pinatubo on the island of Luzon, in the Philippines, erupted catastrophically in June 1991 after 460 (+/-30) years of inactivity and caused that year a 0.5 degree drop in global temperature for over a year.

What should that tell you? How about the fear of global warming is being used as a political tool of control.

Himalayan glaciers have been retreating since 1780 — some 70 years before the onset of the current post-Little Ice Age warming trend and 100 years before the onset of significant global industrialization; so, retreating glaciers as a sign of man-made global warming is more subterfuge.

During the 20th century, for example, while manmade carbon dioxide emissions steadily increased from about 1940 to 1975, global temperatures cooled.

October, 2008,  Swedish researchers reported that cosmic-ray-caused changes in cloud cover over a five-year period can have 85 percent of the temperature effect alleged to have been caused by nearly 200 years of manmade carbon dioxide emissions. They estimated that the temperature effects of cloud cover during the 20th century could be as much as seven times greater than the alleged temperature effect of 200 years worth of additional carbon dioxide and several times greater than that of all additional greenhouse gases combined. Oh, so that big solar flare that occurred on the 7th of June, 2011, might have effects on the temperature?

Would it be considered “piling on” to remind Congress that 2007’s hurricane season predictions — that is, a 95 percent chance of a very active season — turned out to be a total bust? If hurricane experts armed with supercomputers can’t predict a regional storm season six months into the future, why would anyone think that they can project global climate trends for the next 100 years?

These are just some of the things that climatologists have learned or have been proven wrong about in just 2008 year. What do you think they can add when they figure in all the faked data from the  all the so called “climate scientists” allied with the IPCC?

Don’t believe the hype!
