Blagojevich and the Shape of Scandals to Come

By Marie Jon'

It's only five weeks before Obama's inauguration, and already we have a big scandal. Are you curious at all to see if the drive-by-media will have the same bloodlust for David Axelrod as they did for poor Scooter Libby?

It won't be surprising if Axelrod is thrown under the bus like the rest of Obama's minions. It's the same-old same-old when Barack is caught in a lie. "I had no contact with the governor or his office, and so I was not aware of what was happening concerning any possible dealing about Blagojevich's appointment of a successor."

It again seems strange how disconnected Obama appears to be. Actually, it's unbelievable. He never remembers or knows a thing about the people he has dealings with, especially when they are found in compromising positions.

David Axelrod was asked if Obama had contact with Governor Blagojevich's office. Did they talk about his replacement in the Senate? Unfortunately, Obama's adviser appeared on Fox News on November 23 and said something very different than he now says. Axelrod's statement puts doubt in the mind of many Americans. What did Obama know and when did he know it?

Ironically, another statement was issued by Axelrod saying, "I was mistaken when I told an interviewer last month that the President-elect has spoken directly to Governor Blagojevich about the Senate vacancy. They did not then or at any time discuss the subject."

Surely Obama understood what Blagojevich was capable of doing. As it turned out, he had the gall to try to sell Illinois' U.S. senate seat to the highest bidder, while also trying to shake down others for money and political favors. Obama is a Chicago politician with friends that no one I know would associate with.

This week, Rev Jeremiah Wright was back in the news. That piece of information should send up more red flags. Get used to seeing Rev. Bigoted involved once again in Obama's life. It's a sure bet that he really never left. Everything we observed was a sheer facade for the election cycle.

Rahm Emanuel is another questionable character. He sends dead fish to his political enemies. He is well known for his profane, debasing language. He calls himself a practicing Jew. However, he does not seem to be concerned how others might perceive such a religious contradiction. Unfortunately, he is just one more thug known for being a vicious attack dog for the incoming president.

It's almost humorous when Democrats point to others while trying to blacken the eye of the Republican Party. The Speaker of the House continually refers to the GOP as the party of corruption. One might say Pelosi doth protest too much. Nothing can be more obnoxious than the Democrat Party's own corruptive faux pas. They have perfected the art of being bad to the bone.

Jesse Jackson, Jr., has been implicated in the Blagojevich scandal. In spite of his denials, he is probably lying through his teeth, just like his father. You'd have to be totally naive not to understand that Barack Obama, Rohm Emanuel, Jesse Jackson, Jr., and Blagojevich are political cronies. They are part of the notoriously tainted Chicago-Daley political machine.

Excerpts from The Associated Press: Ill. governor arrested in corruption scandal

"CHICAGO — Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was arrested Tuesday on charges he brazenly conspired to sell or trade President-elect Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat to the highest bidder as part of what federal prosecutors called a 'political corruption crime spree.' A federal judge later ordered Blagojevich released on his own recognizance.

"Prosecutors did not accuse Obama himself of any wrong doing.

"Blagojevich also was charged with illegally threatening to withhold state assistance to Tribune Co., the owner of the Chicago Tribune, in an attempt to strong-arm the newspaper into firing editorial writers who had criticized him.

"The 51-year-old Democrat was also accused of engaging in pay-to-play politics — that is, doling out jobs, contracts and appointments in return for campaign contributions.

"'We were in the middle of a corruption crime spree, and we wanted to stop it,' U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald said, calling the charges against Blagojevich 'a truly new low.' He added: 'The conduct would make Lincoln roll over in his grave.

'"Federal investigators bugged the governor's campaign offices and tapped his home phone, capturing conversations laced with profanity and tough-guy talk from the governor. Chicago FBI chief Robert Grant said even seasoned investigators were stunned by what they heard, particularly since the governor had known for three years he was under investigation for alleged hiring fraud."

For those who voted for the president elect, another scandal will not matter. They are full-blown ideologue Democrats who want big government handouts. Spreading the wealth around suits them just fine. Just as long as the Obamanites are kept happy, nothing will sway them from cheering as our country slumps deeper into a recession.

America will be torn asunder inside out, politically and socially. And to top it all off Pres, Barack Obama will hand us the egregious gift of Marxist-Socialism and a "corrupt regime."

Gov. Blagojevich, Rev. Wright, Father Plager, Tony Rezko, William Ayers, and Bernadine Dorne are just some of the people who are found knee-deep in Obama's cult of deception. Who else will we find there, after he is sworn into office?

It will be a disturbing full four years led by Pres. Obama. However, instead of throwing our hands up in the air, feeling helpless, it's time to pray and become politically pro-active. Please sign the petition on ResistNow.com

God instructs Christians to give intercession prayer for our leaders (2 Chronicles 7:14). In these troubling times, we will be blessed when we turn to The Almighty.
