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.


News Flash from Obama

September 3, 2008

The Following News Flashes Are From the Obama Campaign:

NEWS FLASH: The Obama campaign wants you to know that twenty-two years ago, at the age of twenty-two, the husband of the Republican Vice Presidential nominee was charged with Driving Under the Influence.

QUESTION: So how does the youthful overindulgence in beer by the future husband of Governor Palin compare to the Democrat Presidential nominee, Barack Obama, having snorted cocaine and using other illegal drugs?

NEW FLASH: The Obama Campaign wants you to be aware that the eighteen-year-old boyfriend of the teenage daughter of vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin has a criminal record — for fish poaching. Levi Johnston, the soon to be son-in-law of Governor Palin, took some Alaskan king salmon from Moose Lake out of season.

QUESTION: So how does the VP nominee’s daughter’s boyfriend’s poached salmon compare to the illegalities of the close friends of Presidential nominee Barack Obama? Bill Ayers is an American terrorist member of the Weather Underground cop-killers who said on September 11th, 2001: “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.” Another “good” friend, convicted felon and Chicago businessman Antoin “Tony” Rezko, gave the Obamas a sweetheart deal on their multi-million dollar home. Obama’s campaign lawyer, Mazen Asbahi, had to resign because of his connections to HAMAS!

NEWS FLASH: Barack Obama is telling you that Vice President nominee Sarah Palin has no foreign policy experience. She was born and raised in the Far West hinterland of America and even received her education at a state university in the Western backwoods of Idaho.

QUESTION: So because the father of Barack Obama was a “multi-cultural” polygamist who was born, reared and died in the African nation of Kenya, and Obama himself grew up in the foreign country of Indonesia, gives Senator Obama the foreign policy experience necessary for being president?

NEWS FLASH: Governor Palin of Alaska is too inexperienced to be Vice President.

QUESTION: How does Barack Obama explain his claim that by spending eighteen months running a Presidential Campaign, he is more qualified for the Presidency than a Vice Presidential candidate who is serving as Governor and chief executive of the oil-rich state of Alaska?

NEWS FLASH: The Obama campaign wants you to know that Sarah Palin is “vehemently anti-choice.”

QUESTION: How can a woman be labeled as “ANTI-Choice” who has “CHOSEN” to give birth to a Downs Syndrome baby?

NEWS FLASH: An Obama Friend (Ben Smith of Politico) wants you to know that “one Sunday” when Sarah Palin was in attendance at a Church meeting, something was said by a minister that may be considered anti-Semitic.

QUESTION: So the Friends of Obama really want to compare “one Sunday” in the life of Sarah Palin, with the Obamas’ twenty-five years of Sundays in the Church of Reverend “God Damn America” Wright?

NEWS FLASH from Friends of ObamaThere’s a “pregnant seventeen-year-old” in the family of Governor Sarah Palin!

QUESTION: Since when is a “pregnant seventeen-year-old” NEWS? Since the implementation of “CHOICE” known as Roe versus Wade, “pregnant seventeen-years-old” are rarely found in America.

NEWS FLASH from OBAMA FRIENDS – MoveOn.org wants you to be aware that “She supported right-wing extremist Pat Buchanan for president in 2000.

QUESTION: OBAMA FRIEND MoveOn.org is just plain lying. There is no evidence that Sarah Palin EVER worked for Buchanan, raised money or donated her own money to Pat Buchanan. Why don’t the Obama friends tell you that “MAYOR Sarah Palin” wore a Buchanan button only to “WELCOME” Patrick Buchanan to her Alaskan town when he visited there?

NEWS FLASH Barack Obama’s friends think you should know that Governor Palin was once a member of the Alaskan Independence Party, which has pushed for a vote to secede from the United States. Marcos Moulitsas of The Daily KOS proudly broke that news and it was confirmed last Monday by ABC News, his co-conspirator in the mainstream media.

QUESTION Was this false statement a deliberate lie against an innocent Sarah Palin, or as Moulitsas and ABC News claim, they were just innocently feeding you false information from someone, somewhere in Alaska?

Just wondering why the Obama campaign would want to raise these questions comparing Barack Obama, their nominee for President of the U.S., to the Republican nominee for VICE PRESIDENT. Why don’t they compare Obama to the Republican nominee for President – John McCain? Oh, I forgot. Obama prefers to beat-up on women, a la Hillary Clinton. Guess what, Barack? Sarah Palin is NO Hillary Clinton! Sarah Palin is Alaska’s version of Annie Oakley. You’re not going to beat up on her – no way, no how.

Is this the way to run a campaign? And then to claim that your skill at Presidential campaigning qualifies you to be President of the United States is downright BIZARRE!

“I am running for President, therefore, I am President.”

Which is worse? To own seven multi-million dollar homes that came from one’s own spouse, or to own ONE multi-million dollar mansion that came from a shady deal with convicted felon, Chicago businessman Antoin “Tony” Rezko?

Apparently, according to the Obama for President Campaign, that is how the American voters are supposed to decide which of the two presidential candidates will make the better president.
