U.S. House Honors Michael Jackson

June 26, 2009

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. Called for A Moment of Crotch-grabbing in Tribute to Michael Jackson.

Today, the United States House of Representatives violated the Constitutional prohibition on mingling religion with government, by giving thanks to God for newly deceased pop star, Michael Jackson, whom Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. of Illinois said not only “changed the world,” but changed himself from a Black man into a White … uh, um, ah, something or other.  The Congressman requested all members to stand and offer a “moment of crotch-grabbing” in the House this morning as a tribute to Michael Jackson for establishing his Neverland Ranch as a place of refuge and love for young boys of all races and creeds, and for proving to those Americans born Black that they do not have to accept their fate, but can metamorphasize themselves into White folk and be proud.

The Video: Rep. Jesse Jackson Thanks God for Michael Jackson

When asked to explain why the United States Congress does not publicly give thanks to God on the floor of the House chamber for American soldiers who sacrifice their lives in battle for their fellow countrymen, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. asked if any of them were celebrated as the World’s Greatest Musician of all time; greater than Bach, Beethoven and even Elvis. Congressman Jackson continued: “As fine as our warriors are, none of them has yet been able to fight in battle wearing a sequined glove upon one hand, much less moon-walk while carrying arms into battle.”

UPDATE: A Congressional Resolution Honoring Michael Jackson!


Obama’s Chicago Years

December 12, 2008

The Chicago Dance – On to Washington “Chicago, Chicago, That toddlin’ town. Chicago, Chicago, The town that Billy Sunday Could not shut down. I saw a man He danced with his wife, In Chicago, Chicago, my home town.”

In Barack Obama’s first memoir, “Dreams from My Father,” the author discussed his unusual childhood, his Kenyan African father, his white mother, his grandparents in Hawaii and his life in Indonesia. He also covered the three years in the 1980s when he worked as a community organizer in Chicago, Illinois.

In Obama’s second memoir, “The Audacity of Hope,” he covered the Senate campaign that he waged to win election to the United States Senate, and the more than one year he served as a newly elected Senator between 4 January 2005, until 2006.

Chicago is Obama’s political home town; it is where he forged his political identity. However, Obama’s life in Chicago from 1991 until his Senate victory in 2005, was mysteriously overlooked or ignored in both autobiographies. What was Barack Obama accomplishing politically during those missing years in America’s center of vicious and corrupt politics, … Chicago?

America does not know because most American voters were uninterested in Obama’s history. Those who did seek information about Obama’s relationship to Chicago’s political machine, were called racists for questioning the character of a black man. During the Presidential campaign, the American media were uninterested in performing investigative journalism of Obama’s Chicago years, even while a federal prosecutor and his federal office were abroad in the city doing their own investigative research.

The missing years of Obama’s life in Chicago seem now on the cusp of revelation. They will be revealed by the court documents of federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. Those lost Obama years will be documented by Obama’s Chicago friends, associates and enemies such as former U. S. Representative and now Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, Mrs. “I saw a man he danced with his wife” Blagojevich, the Illinois governor’s chief-of-staff John Harris, Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr., bagman Tony Rezko and his “Realtor” wife, current U.S. Congressman Rahm Emanuel who is also working a second job as Oama’s Chief of Staff, Obama’s chief strategist and Daly Machine mouthpiece David Axelrod, David Wilhelm, and assorted other characters of Chicago’s inner sanctum machine.

“The New Yorker”tells us that in 2002, Barack Obama got the plum position of adviser to none other than gubernatorial candidate Rod Blagojevich:

Rahm Emanuel, a congressman from Chicago and a friend of Obama’s, told me that he, Obama, David Wilhelm, who was Blagojevich’s campaign co-chair, and another Blagojevich aide were the top strategists of Blagojevich’s victory. He and Obama “participated in a small group that met weekly when Rod was running for governor,” Emanuel said. “We basically laid out the general election, Barack and I and these two.” A spokesman for Blagojevich confirmed Emanuel’s account, although David Wilhelm, who now works for Obama, said that Emanuel had overstated Obama’s role.

Perhaps right this moment, Rod Blagojevich himself may be writing the screenplay to “Chicago Boyz,” as I jokingly speculated HERE and HERE.
