Hooray to the Illinois state senators, who voted unanimously to remove Rod Blagojevich from office as governor. At least now we don’t have to worry about him running for President.
What? You didn’t know he was originally the prospective Democratic candidate for the 2008 presidential election? At least, that’s what Evelyn Pringle says here:
Operation Board Games must be viewed with a full understanding that Governor Rod Blagojevich was supposed to be the candidate running for president during this election cycle in order for the subplots involving Obama to become clear.
The Illinois political mob already had a major fundraising operation in place for Blagojevich by 2004, and its safe to assume that when Obama and Rezko first started setting up the real estate deal for the mansion and lot in December 2004, Obama never thought about any repercussions on his run for president.
This report will show that the same political mob raising money to make Blagojevich president in 2008, also funded Obama’s election to the US senate in 2004, which is also discussed further in the earlier articles in this series.
And here you thought the Democratic party moved their headquarters to Chicago so they could enjoy the weather. You also thought primaries were decided by the voters, not ahead of time by the Illinois political mob.
Pringle wrote a series of meticulously detailed articles last spring about Blagojevich, Obama, the inner dealings of The Combine (corrupt Illinois political machine) and their Board Games.
Her most stunning allegation is that Obama became the replacement candidate for president in 2008 after Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald got too close to the truth about Blago. If the media had looked, perhaps they would have seen how close Obama was to Blago, too.
US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald does not make a habit of destroying
pub[l]ic officials by listing them in indictments for no reason and the only two political candidates identified as receiving campaign money from Operation Board Games kickback schemes are Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and the US Senator from Illinois, Barack Obama.
Instead of referring to Board Games as the “Rezko” case, before long the media will likely be calling it the “Blagojevich” case. However, because the governor did not become the presidential candidate, when the scandal is recorded in the history books it will be the “Barack Obama” case.
Curtain Time Part II will show that Obama was the inside guy in the Illinois senate as far as setting up the Health Facilities Planning Board to extort contributions from companies in exchange for the approval of applications to build medial facilities. Curtain Time Part II
Evelyn Pringle thought information about Obama’s associations and dealings would be the end of his presidency bid. She did not count on the corrupt /incompetent (take your pick) media shielding him.
If he becomes the nominee, the web of corruption leading to Obama’s rise to power that this investigative journalist was able to untangle in less than three weeks, will be front page news right up until election day, handing the Republicans their only chance in hell of winning the White House. Wizard of Oz
“Front page news.” Right.
