Say bye bye to Blago

Prosecutor: ‘pattern of abuse’ by Ill. governor

“The prosecutor in the impeachment trial of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich says he’s proven ‘a pattern of abuse of power.’In his closing argument Thursday, prosecutor David Ellis said the evidence shows Blagojevich knew his conduct was improper.”

It looks like Blago’s goose is just about cooked.  I do have to give Blago credit for believing in himself–he’s been off on a media blitz this week, all the while proclaiming his innocence.  And this despite the tapes that the prosecutor has been playing for the jury.  You know the tapes…the ones you’ve heard on the news that clearly feature him talking about seeking favors or money for the messiah’s Senate seat.  Blago is either shamelessly dishonest or totally off his rocker.  Or both. 

Oh, and I do have to give the AP credit.  They actually mentioned in this article that Blago is a Democrat.  Oh, really?  Hmm…I had no idea.  Of course, if the story were about a corrupt Republican, they would have put the word, “Republican” in the headline and 15 times throughout the article also.  Oh well.  Progress is progress.

Baltimore mayor indicted–guess which party?

Posted by Liberty on January 9, 2009

On the way home from the grocery store this afternoon, I heard a quick blip on the indictment of Baltimore mayor, Sheila Dixon.  Because the newscaster did not mention a political party in connection with Dixon, I deduced that she must be a Democrat and made a mental note to check it out when I got home.  Of course, my supposition was correct.  Sheila Dixon is a Democrat and she has been indicted on 12 counts resulting from a corruption investigation.  The radio station I was listening to carries ABC news but they weren’t the only ones leaving the word “Democrat” out of the broadcast.  According to Newsbusters, CNN anchor Kyra Phillips failed to identify Dixon as a Democrat…inadvertently, I’m sure.

Analysis of Obama’s pick for Secretary of Labor

Posted by Liberty on December 22, 2008

Quantum of Solis

“There is joy in Unionville this Christmas. Barack Obama’s pick for Secretary of Labor — Hilda Solis — brings impeccable big labor credentials. The California Congresswoman first rode to power with labor backing against a fellow Democrat, has voted with the AFL-CIO 97% of the time, and got three-quarters of her campaign contributions from unions.”

This should make Conservatives nervous.

“Ms. Solis says her goal is to expand the reach and power of unions in America, and she supports such union priorities as the Employee Free Choice Act, which would do the opposite of its name and end secret balloting to unionize a workplace. Look for a showdown on that legislation in 2009. Meanwhile, the other drama to watch is whether Ms. Solis will turn a blind eye to union corruption by weakening federal oversight.”

Very nervous.

Obama team faces an early test of its ability to weather a storm

Obama team faces an early test of its ability to weather a storm

“Republicans have raised questions about Obama’s refusal to say more and about his past ties with the main characters. Even if Obama remains untouched by the investigation, it shines a light on the corrupt politics of the state he emerged from and takes attention away from the agenda of change he would rather emphasize.”

Is there anybody out there who hasn’t already heard of Obama’s questionable associations?  Reverend Wright, Father Pfleger, William Ayers, Bernadine Dorn, Tony Rezko, Rashid Khalidi…Rod Blagojevich is just one more name on the list.

It’s funny how now that Obama has been elected, the Associated Press now admits that he really has had questionable associations.  If the MSM had been honest, they would have published information like this when it was really relevant:  before the election!

Chicago thug politics and the liberal double standard

Posted by Liberty on December 9, 2008

Details Of Complaint Against Blagojevich

First of all, just more evidence of how corrupt Chicago politics are.  Eventually more of us are going to regret electing a president that comes from this kind of farm team.  Also, if Blagojevich were a Republican, the headline would be “Details of Complaint Against Republican Blagojevich” and the words “Republican,” “GOP,” “Right-wing” and Conservative would be used copiously.  Because he’s a Democrat and this story is bad news about him, the fact that he’s a Democrat is buried.  In fact, just using Ctrl+F to search the text of this story, I didn’t find the word “Democrat” anywhere!
