Washington, DC -- January 5, 2009
Includes December 3, 2008, Letter to "Rod" Signed by Obama
Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents from the office of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich through the Freedom of Information Act related to Blagojevich's contacts with President-elect Obama and his transition team. The documents include a December 3, 2008, letter from Barack Obama following his December 2, 2008, meeting with Blagojevich as well as a November 17, 2008, letter signed by Presidential Transition Team co-chairs Valerie Jarrett and John Podesta providing Blagojevich with a list of transition team contacts.
The following are excerpts from the letter signed by President-elect Obama on December 3, 2008, less than one week before authorities arrested Blagojevich for attempting to "sell" Obama’s now-vacant Senate seat, among other corruption charges:
- "Thank you for meeting with me on Tuesday in Philadelphia. Vice President-elect Joe Biden and I were pleased with the open discussion."
- "As we discussed, I would appreciate any advice you can provide to me and my team on the biggest roadblocks to states in moving forward in ‘getting ready to go' projects started quickly."
- "In addition, I welcome any advice you can provide me and my team on revitalizing and reinvigorating the state-federal partnership. I want to make it a priority of my Administration to work closely with you."
- "I look forward to working with you and hitting the ground running on January 20th."
The November 17, 2008, letter signed by Jarrett and Podesta states:
"On behalf of President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden we want you to know of our strong interest in working with you in the months to come. As you may know we have formed a Presidential Transition Team so that the new Administration will be prepared to confront the extraordinary challenges facing our country. Your leadership and experience will be invaluable in this effort and we hope you will not hesitate to share your insights during this process."
"These documents tend to undermine Obama's claims that he had no contact with Blagojevich and suggest his transition is hiding documents about such contacts," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "Why did President-elect Obama not release this letter? What else is he hiding?"And, not to be outdone, another dose of Pelosi-style workings was revealed yesterday: she
"plans to re-write House rules today to ensure that the Republican minority is unable to have any influence on legislation. Pelosi’s proposals are so draconian, and will so polarize the Capitol, that any thought President-elect Obama has of bipartisan cooperation will be rendered impossible before he even takes office." --Connie Hair http://www.humanevents.comarticle.php?id=30143Meanwhile, back in the real world, the U.S. Supreme Court has two conferences scheduled on Berg lawsuits, and awaits yet another one. For an interesting discussion of the Berg suits, see http://talkwisdom.blogspot.com/2008/12/seeing-big-picture.html. Nearly twenty cases have been filed, countless searches performed, and STILL no one has been able to locate ANY authentic records pertaining to any aspect Mr. Soetoro/Obama's life, and, due to the endless list of ignominious characters with whom he has aligned himself, he is unable to pass even the most basic routine security clearance background check performed for police, FBI and other security employment. Web pages have been scrubbed so assiduously that it is now mandatory standard operating procedure for researchers to immediately take and save screen shots to prevent loss of material from daily scrubs.
And, all the while, the rest of the world stands by aghast, not knowing whether to gag or guffaw, probably doing a bit of both. From accounts in the foreign press, it is obvious that they are holding their collective breath, wondering how bad the fallout will be if the Americans' own highest court refuses to uphold its oath to preserve and protect the Consitution and prevent what they all know is a Pretender, Usurper and most probably an illegal alien from seizing power as leader of the free world. http://www.daily.pk/world/americas/8993-barack-obama-the-naked-emperor-.html
In the meantime, life goes on in these United States--albeit with fear and trepidation--while patriots, both natural born and naturalized, fight to protect our Constitution and expose the truth about the chimera that has drifted up from places unknown like so much swirling smoke. Had American media done its job, none of this would be necessary. As it is, patriots everywhere are working day and night to ferret out fact, expose fiction, capture the truth and save our country from the cloud of confusion that has descended over our political system.
