The Rod Blagojevich tapes started on Oct. 22, more than a year after the investigations started. Yet, no mention from the media until weeks after the election

Breaking news. 

Governor Rod Blagojevich gave a press confernence Dec. 19, at 2 p.m. announcing his side of the story for the first time.

“I’m hear to tell you right off the bat that I am not guilty of any criminal wrongdoing and that I intend to stay on the job and that I will fight this thing every step of the way,” said Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D-Ill.) proclaimed his innocence in the opening volley of a statement delivered at the John R. Thompson Center in downtown Chicago this afternoon.

“I will fight, I will fight, I will fight, until I take my last breath,” he continued.  “I have done nothing wrong.”

I believe him. I don’t think he did anything wrong. What about Obama’s chief of staff? 

President-elect Barack Obama’s incoming chief of staff Rahm Emanuel had a deeper involvement in pressing for a U.S. Senate seat appointment than previously reported, the Sun-Times has learned. Emanuel had direct discussions about the seat with Gov. Blagojevich, who is is accused of trying to auction it to the highest bidder. — Reported by the Chicago Sun-Times (not the Tribune).  

We know now that hundreds of hours of conversations involving Rod Blagojevich and the top levels of the Democrat Party, were secretly recorded by the FBI since Oct. 22, and Tribune jounalists didn’t mention it — not until after the election of course. Wouldn’t the citizens of America have been better served if they knew about the investigation before the election? 

But it gets more interesting. 

It appears there was a marathon conference call on Nov. 10, with Blago getting all kinds action from the Obama and Chicago Democrat machine. This must have been big. Really big. Because someone tipped off the Tribune to announce to the world about the wire tap and the Obama lock down began. But this was before Blagojevich and Obama’s team exchanged favors, so no crime was committed. The Tribune got a call, from who? Could it be Tony Rezco (the former Tribune editor) to expose the wire tap before Obama’s team made the payoff? Who gave the Tribune the call to spill the beans? 

A WSJ report on Dec. 14 states that the Tribune knew about the wire in October and was working with Pat Fitzgerald’s office on withholding the story.

All is well in Crook County, Ill. 

Thousands of Avis customers are being billed for “unpaid” Ill tollroad fees that were supposed to be charged to the EZ toll devices. Millions of dollars are going to the corrupt Democrat Chicago machine. That’s chump change. This is Chicago! 

Tell us your Chicago stories.

  1. Mick,
    You called it. Blago WILL
    BE SET FREE you have better insight than the old Chicago media. Sam Zell should hiRe you

  2. Mick is the undisputed super-genius of the political and economic worlds. Mick knew about the over-priced California/National real estate markets and took action long before Zell said, “This country needs a cleansing. We need to clean out all those people who never should have bought in the first place, and not give them sympathy.” (Zell 2008) And California will continue to be the country’s Chernobyl as the housing market melts down nation-wide. So, Mick which party will take the Senate and House in November and should we all be buying gold, just in case…?

  3. Thank you for the kind words, Marjon. But it is you who helped me shape my real estate look at the future. You my friend, fixed up and moved a month before me to an island in paradise. We can laff now at the greedy sheeple who thought their California dream would never end. We have bright futures for our families in states with no state income tax and thriving economies. My prediction, I believe that Boxer will go down. She should move back to New York and open up a bagel shop next to the Victory Mosque she supports. The governor, I don’t know. It really doesn’t matter that much, California is run by the Democrat/Socialist machine. Arnold wasn’t able to even slow them down on spending. How about you, esquire? What do you think? I also believe McCain will win in Az. He has wised up on the border crime.

  4. Indeed, you were right on with McCain. He took the primary last night, just as you predicted. Boxer and Pelosi won’t be so lucky and will probably be giving their Hate-America speeches at the Ground Zero Mosque after they lose their re-election bids. Democracy is a great thing. I enjoyed taking my family to see Arnold during his campaign, but after his election, he seemed to shrink away from his ideas and dreams for California. It also seems like the enthusiasm for America is waning. Now with national unemployment at 10%; plunging home sales; eroding consumer confidence and the implementation of a cut-and-run strategy in Iraq I wonder if we are on the verge of a national depression rather than recession. I hope not…
