Must Be Nice To Jet Around On Someone Else’s Dime [UPDATES] »

/ Bumped Up / UPDATE: Two of them, actually. Since I am in my hometown after having seen my orthopaedist, and have to get something from my mom’s house (now my brother’s house), I have this on the jobs front. This came in on Friday, to add to the high Unemployment filings for the last [...]

Wither Goest Your Sex Fantasies? * Open Thread »

No, I’m not Doctor Ruth. I’m just a flabbergasted former subscriber to the New York Times who read THIS Judith Warner drivel (which cannot be news or even worthy of commentary) the other day in that once-esteemed, once-great newspaper: The other night I dreamt of Barack Obama. He was taking a shower right when I [...]

Now Playing: The Beast That Slimes Chicago »

It’s quite a spectacular big-budget production of ugly, isn’t it? We couldn’t make this stuff up. Actually, The Beast has been sliming the Windy City for a long time. Organized crime and dirty politics (“vote early and vote often and include your dead family members and pets while you are at it”) dominated Chicago during [...]

Breaking: “FBI asked questions on Rezko land deal” »

From today’s Washington Times — you know, that major newspaper whose reporter was kicked off of Obama’s plane last week, along with reporters for the New York Post and Dallas Morning News (see American Girl in Italy’s “love me, or else!)”: A former Illinois real estate specialist says FBI agents have questioned him about a [...]

Open Thread * More on Rezko & Obama »

Let’s tie this open thread’s chief topic to Truthteller’s significant breaking story, “BREAKING: Obama Land Deal with Rezko and Mutual Bank Subject of New Court Complaint.” Recently, a friend asked for information on now convicted Tony Rezko and Barack Obama. Here’s what I sent her, from more stories on the Obamas’ mansion to Obama’s entanglements [...]

BREAKING: Obama Land Deal with Rezko and Mutual Bank Subject of New Court Complaint »

No Quarter introduced readers to the Mutual Bank in Chicago after a Chicago Sun-Times columnist mentioned how a certain financial institution in Chicago would become the subject of a federal probe to be conducted by Fitzgerald’s prosecutors in relation to the conviction of Antoin “Tony” Rezko. Although I cautioned I did not have conclusive evidence [...]

Obama’s Looming Subprime Nightmare »

While the [...]

Rezko, Giannoulias and Obama – dominoes? »

We’ve known for a while that Tony Rezko is likely talking with federal prosecutors, since his sentencing after being convicted of wire and mail fraud, money laundering, aiding and abetting bribery has been indefinitely delayed. This is considered a sign that Rezko is providing information that will mitigate against his potential sentence. The absolute best [...]

why it does matter. »

Obama camp on Rezko: “Nothing to see here. Just move along.” Obama camp on ACORN: “Nothing to see here. Move along.” Obama camp on Ayers: “People don’t care about these issues. They are worried about the economy. Move along.” Obama camp on Wright: “Nothing to see here people, keep it moving.” Obama camp on Jim [...]

it isn’t coincidence…there is a pattern »

But sadly, too many people choose to ignore it, or accept it, or just call you a racist for noticing it. But the pattern is there. It begins like this: Obama has a friend or associate that is questionable. Video or articles surface of Obama thanking them, supporting them, writing a blurb for their book, [...]

CORROBORATED: Rezko Speaks, Prosecutors Interested in Obama Listen »

(bumped up by SusanUnPC) We warned readers of No Quarter of the problems convicted slumlord and political fixer Antoin “Tony” Rezko would create for Obama during the final stretch of the Presidential campaign, and now we have confirmation.

Rezko Speaks, Prosecutors Interested in Obama Listen »

No Quarter reproduced Rezko’s letter to Judge Amy St. Eve dated 9 JUN 2008 in an essay I published on 12 JUN 2008. I quote Antoin “Tony” Rezko: Your Honor, the prosecutors have been overzealous in pursuing a crime that never happened. They are pressuring me to tell them the “wrong” things that I supposedly [...]

“The Hunt For Sarah October” »

Oh. Dear. GODDESS. Are you freakin’ kidding me? I had heard talk of such a thing, but I cannot believe they are actually doing this. What am I going on about? Well, “The Hunt For Sarah October” is a Wall Street Journal article by John Fund, and it details the onslaught of people descending upon [...]

Swiftboat Redux? »

Now this is just ironic. Some of you may recall that not too long ago, Andrew Sullivan attacked yours truly. My sister sent me a link to Andrew’s latest drivel, more attack on Sarah Palin (if you feel you must read his piece, here is the LINK). For him to use an undocumented comment by [...]

The DNC’s “Director Of Greening” and “Carbon Advisor” »

So these must be the “Green Jobs” Barack Obama is thinking about. A couple of hundred thousand consultants. Wonderful. It’s a great way to hire and boost the income of friends and family though. That doesn’t include You, suckers. Just so you know. While most Americans find that what once was their disposable income is [...]

The Skinny on the Obamas’ Home Loan »

We wrote several articles — here, here, and here — on reports last week about the favorable home loan that the Obamas received for the $1.6 milion mansion they couldn’t afford, but which the now-convicted Tony Rezko made possible. We pointed to the connections between Chicago’s Crown family, billionaire industrialists and constant Obama campaign financiers, [...]
