Seat Roland Burris – Follow Law!!

December 31, 2008

I despise Gov. Blagojevic and condemn his many wrongful actions and omissions. However, I support the rule of law.

Under Illinois law concerning the duties of the Secretary of State, it is the mandatory DUTY of the Secretary of State to sign, seal, deliver, and file all documents issued by the Governor. For Secretary of State White to refuse to sign and seal the Governor’s documents amounted to usurping the powers of the Governor and violating the law in regards to powers of the Secretary of State. Gov. Blagojevic has a mandatory duty to appoint a Senator to fill a vacancy. The Senate rules require them to seat a Senator when the appointment paper signed by the Governor and the Secretary of State is received. End of story!

Anyone refusing to obey these laws and rules is snubbing their nose at the Constitution and the rule of law. Shame on Obama, Reid, White, and all the Senators who oppose seating Burris. I expect more from Obama – a constitutional law professor! People in Illinois have a right to be represented by two Senators at this critical moment in history, when the United States is in crisis.

The Senate is hypocritical. They have seated a convicted felon – Alaska Senator, a Senator convicted of a sex crime, and they acknowledge that Burris is honest, qualified, and a Governor has a legal duty to fill a vacancy. Roland Burris is one of the few African-American elder statesmen who is untainted and qualified for this office. We should rapidly embrace his appointment. The arrest of Blagojevic pushed him to abandon pay-to-play and we should be thankful of this development.

Burris has donated money to Blagojevic campaign and many other Democrats’ campaigns and this is not pay-to-play in such small amounts, consistently given over years. His law firm has had a few relatively small contracts with people seeking state contracts and with the State. This is reasonable considering the narrow expertise of his law firm and goal of helping businesses obtain minority contracts. This is not pay-to-play. This is a normal business practice for a specialty law firm in this area. Anyone who tries to make more out of this is unfair.

Burris has lost several elections for Governor and Chicago Mayor because he is independent and NOT completely controlled by the cabal of corruption. He is exactly the person we need as Senator to help break the back of the machine in Illinois.

Burris should immediately seek an emergency mandamus from the courts to FORCE Secr. of State Jess White to sign and seal the Senate appointment document from the Governor. If ten days pass by law without his signature and seal, the document becomes void. Then Governor Blagojevic may just keep re-issuing his appointment letter every ten days until White signs it. If Secr. of State White refuses this mandatory and NOT discretionary duty, he should be impeached and removed from office for dereliction of duty harming the State and the Country for denying a full complement of Senators to the State and the Country. I find White’s refusal to sign the document and seal it as arrogant, misguided, illegal, and harmful to the State and the Country.

If Roland Burris is indicted and convicted for something he would automatically lose his position as Senator by law. If he was found mentally or physically unfit for duty, then there are procedures the Senate can take to remove him. I find it obscene that our incoming President and the majority of our Senators, as well as Secretary of State Jesse White would DEFY the rule of law and SNUB THEIR NOSES at the Constitution. They should not be allowed to act so atrociously! People should donate funds to Burris to help him quickly seek court orders to ensure he is seated.

Blogojevic is tainted but legally the Governor with duties he MUST perform. Would you want to invalidate any pardons he might give for prisoners who are proven innocent due to DNA evidence because of the taint over Blagojevic?  I have to assume the only reason to NOT SEAT Burris is because the politicians cannot control him – they didn’t choose him, and their cabal of corruption, along with their oligarchy, would be in jeapardy if he is seated!

Go Roland! Kick their ****!!

Illinois Corruption Extreme – Quadraplegic Hispanic Man Convicted of Resisting Arrest and Police Battery!!

December 29, 2008

Quadraplegic Convicted of Resisting Arrest and Battery of Chicago Police Officers Sues for Excessive Force

A paralyzed man convicted of resisting arrest and hitting a Chicago police officer in a 2006 incident is suing the city and several of its police officers for violating his civil rights. Daniel Casares, who is a quadriplegic, says that police pulled him from his vehicle and beat him even after he told them that he was paralyzed and could not get out of the car.Casares has been a partial C4 full C7 quadriplegic for a long time. He only has minimal movement in his arms and almost no movement of his  hands, and of course is confined to a wheelchair. Most of his movements are muscle spasms not under his control. Emotions increase the muscle spasms as they did on the date in question. Casares was sitting in the passenger seat of a car in an alley where he had gone with his brother to admire a car. One of his interests is in cars so he is taken to look at interesting cars owned by his friends.

The police were apparently suspecting that drug deals were done in that alley and suspected his brother. They pulled their guns and told everyone to get out of the car. When Casares did not get out, despite everyone yelling he was quadriplegic, Casares claims a female officer got in the driver’s seat, pulled her gun and pushed it at his thigh and said “you’re going to walk now.” This great stress induced a muscle spasm that slapped her in the face. Immediately after that the police dragged him out of the car and beat him. His face was severely contused and swollen. They beat him more harshly because he refused to walk.

Three police officers that testified at Casares’s criminal trial offer a different account. They claim that they never drew their guns during the altercation and accuse Casares of hitting a female cop when she asked him to exit his car.

Cesares was charged with resisting arrest and misdemeanor battery. He was convicted at a bench trial. Judge Brown apparently was impressed with Caseras’ muscles – he is well toned in the arms because of constant involuntary spasms. Caseras told the judge he had only limited movement of his right arm demonstrating that he could move it a little up and down. The judge was so incompetent and outrageously biased that he ignored the fact that Caseras is quadriplegic with mostly muscle spasms and limited movement and the likelihood that Caseras involuntarily slapped the officer in the face and convicted Caseras who was sentenced to probation. To say there is NO reasonable doubt is insane and unfair.

Civil rights organizations and disability rights groups should jump onto this case and aid Caseras. We should also consider racial bias and discrimination against Caseras because he is Hispanic. Judge Brown should be removed from the bench for this outrage. The case should be overturned on appeal and if it is not, then we truly live in a totalitarian police state where police can beat, abuse, harass, and kill people with impunity!

This is a case screaming for the intervention of the U.S. Attorney. To me this is felony violation of civil rights under color of law, excessive force, unlawful arrest, malicious prosecution, and racial discrimination.

A Holiday Wish – “Your Questions, if Answered Honestly, would Eliminate the Death Penalty”

December 25, 2008

I offer the following during this Christmas Season in the hopes of inciting true love for our fellow man, rationality, and peace!  This is a season when we should think carefully about compassion, love, forgiveness, and justice for all – the victims and the perpetrators. I don’t wish to bring up bad things, but this is a time when the meaning of punishment and redemption have a very big historical context. Perhaps we can find some peace in contemplating the answers to the questions I pose, as well as the phrase which I treasure – United We Stand, Divided We Fall.

Happy Holidays! May the blessings of the season be with you and your families. May the New Year bring you joy, prosperity, and peace!

The title of this post was the response of famed defense attorney Gerry Spence to the following comment I placed on his blog:

What does the death penalty do except act as a method of revenge and fulfill a blood lust? Does publicizing executions promote compassion and justice? Does an execution help cure society of murders or reduce the murder rate? Is a civilized society more civilized by executing its citizens? Does an execution protect society from murder greater than a life sentence without parole? Is an execution reversible when new evidence proves innocence? Do I want to teach my son that the answer to anything is murder? I don’t think so.

There are some emotions that are harmful as well as useless. Revenge is one of them. When I am angry, I try to channel this anger into something productive. Even in murderers, I see something useful. I would like to channel the consequence of their despicable act into something good in society. Yes we must protect society from them and many could never be rehabilitated. BUT – are we forgetting that all human beings, no matter how loathsome have unique qualities and even the ability to contribute to society – even evil from behind prison walls may have value?

Could not the convicted murderer help design programs to address the problems that lead them to murder? Are they incapable of contributing anything to society from even behind secure prison walls? Do people not change? Do people not grow in understanding? Perhaps America is wrong about the death penalty and the rest of the civilized world that abolished it is right.

I hope I see some day the death penalty in the United States goes the way of being drawn and quartered in England. I would like it talked about as a barbaric ancient method of punishment not fit for the civilized world, which promoted violence instead of preventing it. I don’t want anger and revenge misused in this manner any more.

Proposed New Cabinet Position – Secretary of Communications

December 23, 2008

Communications is the new frontier. Newspapers are being converted from print to internet. Huge amounts of money are wasted through lack of standardization, redundancy, and difficulty in querying and finding data. We need to standardize not just electronic medical records, to prevent duplicating services and errors, but also utility bills, credit card bills, contracts, court records, prison and jail records, government forms and records, and any communications which are fundamental, frequent, and subject to privacy and security concerns.

Elderly and disabled persons often have difficulty in the area of communications. Changing the format of utility bills causes a problem. Difficult to read credit card bills causes chaos. Incomprehensible contracts are a disaster. Difficult to read and fill-out forms deny access.

National security is highly dependent on communications – on the battle front, for homeland security, to prevent terrorist attacks, to prevent crime. However the privacy concerns are huge. Intelligence may sometimes compromise privacy. How do we balance these?

Information technology is poorly understood by most Americans. We need increased education in this area.

Mediation, debate, giving and following instructions, about almost anything are necessary skills in society. How can we increase our skills as a nation in this area?

            I feel a cabinet level position is warranted to help us move from the paper age to the digital age, just as we have moving from the agricultural age to the industrial age, and have entered the computer/internet age. Laws must be reviewed and new laws implemented regarding this new frontier. Careful thought must be given to implementing incentives that enhance are goals and principles. Communications in this new age cannot be without strings attached, just as one cannot shout “fire” in a movie theatre.

 

Please give your thoughts on this proposal through the comment feature of this blog.

 

Re-Integrating >600,000 Ex-Cons per Year and Growing – Give your Suggestions!

December 21, 2008

Please consider a jobs program for organizations to design and implement programs to re-integrate, provide mental health care, provide drug abuse treatment, provide family therapy, and supervise ex-cons and to train and employ ex-cons. > 600,000 convicts are released every year and this is growing due to the failed policy of the last 30 years to be “tough on crime.” What good does it do to squash prisoners like a bug, destroy their families, destroy their health, destroy their future career potential, and fail to provide even an iota of rehabilitation?

Part of our economic problem is that we are destroying and wasting so much human potential. If we employed these people and the prisons guards and employees, as well as reduce the number of prisoners in half with alternative sentencing for non-violent criminals, drug abuse treatment, and mental health care – our workforce that pays taxes and contributes to society will grow at an astonishing rate (including ex-cons, ex – prison employees, and the ex-cons’ families who were living on the dole) and our productivity will increase.

 Please give your creative suggestions about how to achieve this.  Think outside the box! Be innovative!

Save a Life Dr. Maisha Hamilton Bennett – From Corrupt Officials in Illinois – I’m Serious!!

December 19, 2008

UPDATE – Sept 17, 2009

 

Dr. Hamilton was FREED from CCDOC today. The charges of perjury were nolle pros’d and she pled guilty to violation of probation in exchange for being sentenced to jail time served.  She believes she is and actually is innocent and will now focus on the appeal of her conviction for vendor fraud and theft.  When that conviction is overturned, then the violation of probation will also be overturned as you can’t be guilty of violation of probation if the probation never legally existed.

The facts are that her indictment is void because it was legally insufficient. She was never arrested for the crime before trial so the trial was illegal. According to the Federal Medicaid Code, nothing she did was illegal so the charges are void according to the Supremacy clause of the Constitution. The IL Attorney General had no legal right to bring Medicaid fraud charges without the consent or participation of the Cook County States Attorney. The SA had brought the charges and then dismissed them. In addition to these facts there are several other reasons why the charges, the trial, the conviction and the sentence are null and void.

I had filed a petition for habeas corpus that was heard by Judge Biebel. He appointed Prof. Daniel Coyne of the Kent School of law to represent Dr. Hamilton. Prof. Coyne should be thanked for helping orchestrate this deal to get her released.  Now Dr. Hamilton can focus on her appeal and gather the necessary documents as a free woman with no strings attached. The part of her sentence on vendor faud and theft including $400,000 restitution and 600 hrs community service, as well as probation was vacated in the deal.

_________________________________________________________________

The following is a letter to the Director of the Chicago FBI Office. I am asking him to save a life. Please help me by ACTING. Write a letter to Mr. Grant and Asst. US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald. Write a letter to the press. The addresses are at the end of this post. Disseminate this information widely on every blog possible. This is a matter of life and death. This is a matter of preserving the Republic. In this terrible time in Illinois we need ANY help we can get. IF we could raise $200,000 we could pay the bail and get Dr. Hamilton out of jail and to a hospital if necessary. If we could raise $20,000 to $50,000 we could get her a good attorney. Help us wrench back our State of Illinois from the corrupt. Read the following link that gives you a brief idea what we are up against.

 

http://illinoiscorruption.blogspot.com/2008/10/criminal-scheme-of-il-attorney-general.html

 

HELP SAVE A LIFE, A TALENTED PERSON, HER CAREER, AND LET HER CONTINUE HER WORK TO HELP THE POOR, THE MENTALLY ILL, AND THE DISADVANTAGED. Talk is cheap. Please walk the walk and don’t just talk the talk. We are in desperate straits in Illinois. Gov. Blagojevic is the tip of the iceberg of corruption. He is merely a puppet. The real crooks are behind the scenes and spread out like an octopus with tentacles.

 

 

Special Agent Robert Grant:

 

Please discuss this with AUSA Patrick Fitzgerald. Please read this in detail. I am asking you to intervene to save a life of probably the most valuable witness against corruption in IL that you could have.

 

I am writing to PLEAD WITH YOU to please meet with me and go to CCDOC and meet with Dr. Maisha Hamilton [Bennett].  This is to save her life and preserve a valuable witness for you to use against corruption. She has more knowledge about the Jacksons, Vrdolyak, Rev. Meeks, Stroger, and many African American politicians in IL than almost anyone!!!!

 

Dr. Hamilton is a brilliant and talented person devoted to mental health care for the poor.  She is a Harvard graduate in that she has a certificate from the Kennedy School of Government. She is the first black Ph.D. psychologist in Illinois and graduated from the University of Chicago. She was until 2002 the Chief Mediator for the Postal Service. She was appointed Deputy Dir. of the Chicago Board of Health in charge of mental health clinics by Mayor Wahington. She is a law abiding citizen. She was the psychologist examining and treating the two boys, age 7 and 8, falsely accused in the Ryan Harris murder and is responsible in proving they could not have committed the crime. She was on the Board of Directors of Rainbow Push.  I have attached her CV. Please look at it. When she took office a Daley operative came in and told her to just sit at her desk as a figure head and he would run the department. She kicked him out and has been the victim of retaliation for the last 20+ years!

 

 Pay to play is common regarding obtaining contracts with Illinois or Cook County agencies. Dr. Hamilton ALWAYS said NO THANKS – I won’t pay a kickback.  Dr. Markos is head of the forensic clinical services at the Cook Count Courts. I doubt he would be there if he didn’t pay the kick-back.

 

Dr. Hamilton was fraudulently arrested and convicted of Medicaid vendor fraud (a state charge). I know absolutely she is innocent. She was convicted of having her company bill Medicaid for mental health services of her employees who were psychologists and counselors. They said that the Medical Director’s name was used as the provider. The issue is that the billing agent Louise Moore of Data Medical Works without Dr. Hamilton’s knowledge, and because Ms. Moore fraudulently holds herself out as an expert at setting up companies to bill Medicaid, and because the IL Medicaid provider unit told her to do so, wrongfully set up Dr. Hamilton’s company, Hamilton Wholistic Healthcare, to bill fee-for-service instead of as a licensed Alcohol and Drug Treatment Center (“ADTC”). ADTCs in IL can bill under the center’s name for services of employees who are not physicians! In addition her center was an inpatient treatment center and mostly billed for services to inpatients. She also billed legitimately for services to children of the patients who received counseling. She didn’t even know that Ms. Moore was billing under a medical director’s name, instead of billing under the center name, because the checks from Medicaid were made out to Hamilton Wholistic Healthcare.

 

Ms. Moore by the way bills fraudulently by percentage instead of by each itemized service. According to the rules, this is Medicaid fraud and you have been ignoring this for a decade or more. Ms. Moore is becoming very wealthy off of this fraud and off of fraudulently holding herself out as an expert at not only billing but also setting up companies to bill. Ms. Moore actually is just setting people up to be wrongfully indicted by the sham prosecutor Lisa Madigan – who under IL law has brought these charges against Dr. Hamilton without any jurisdiction! I would like to explain this to you in detail, but if you do not understand – and want to figure this out yourself please read – a fed habeas case – 08 C 6216 AND 08 C 4627.

 

Dr. Hamilton was fraudulently convicted and sent to County Jail for six months of a wrongful incarceration. They tried to kill her twice there – one time the officers told two deranged and violent inmates to shank her in the shower but she was saved by other inmates who warned her to stay away from the shower. During the 4 yr probation sentence following incarceration she fled to Virginia to her brothers house so she could file habeas petition with the US Supreme Court.

 

She also testified against IL S. Court and at the time IL Appellate court judge Ann Burke. Judge Burke is up to her ears in corruption in that her husband accepts $10,000 payments (bribes?) to get people elected to judgeships. This buys them the backing of the “machine” and puts their election signs up on the lawns of employees of the Cook County Court Clerk’s Office and the Cook County Sheriff’s office in addition to campaigning by public employees on public time and the word of the party to gather votes. Judge Burke has lawless control over the higher courts.

 

Dr. Hamilton knows about the courts more than most people because her sister, Morgan Hamilton, is a Cook County Circuit Court Judge, and she has been “friends” with so many prominent politicians! Dr. Hamilton told me there was no way she would win an appeal in the IL Courts as they are corrupt and she testified against Judge Burke in the Baby T case where J. Burke illegally arranged to have guardianship of Baby T – Travis Oldelson. Judge Burke essentially kidnapped Baby T in order to have a black child she could parade on her Christmas cards to get the black vote!  Isn’t that sick!!!! I would like to tell you how J. Burke accomplished this.  I suggest you also talk to Baby T’s mother Tina.

 

Any ways, Dr. Hamilton is so convinced that the fed court system HAS to hear her when she has no possibility of justice in IL – because the cabal of corruption at their highest level needs to shut her up and discredit her because they know how much information she has, that she fled and filed documents in the US Supreme Court for habeas which of course were dismissed for failure to exhaust state remedies – per my understanding.

 

Dr. Hamilton is so INTENSELY FRIGHTENED of the justice system in IL and the cabal of corruption (consisting of her former “friends) – Judge Evans, Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Danny Davis, Bobby Rush, Ms. Adams, Rev/Sen Meeks, etc that this has seemingly irrationally colored her decision to refuse to participate in a state appeal. Extreme fear and personal knowledge of the extent of the corruption actually make her decision rational. The State Appellate Defender wrote a very good appeal that should get her conviction overturned because of MANY gross civil rights violations and due process violations. However the appeal was thrown out because she was a fugitive. Up to now she has refused to write a petition to the IL Appellate Court to reinstate the  appeal.

 

Anyways, the IL Atty Gen’s office FRAUDULENTLY CALLED  the Washington DC Federal Marshall fugitive task force and told them a complete LIE. They said she was a major criminal who committed fraud and that her name was all over the papers and that if they didn’t pick her up immediately she would flee and  they would lose her. They came into her brother’s house, breaking down the door, with guns up and arrested her. They were then furious when the IL Gov failed to send in a timely fashion a Governor’s warrant and the only charges pending against her were a probation violation and a warrant for perjury. Therefore, their arrest was ILLEGAL!!!

 

Then Dr. Hamilton, in her extreme fear, (I would testify that she called me and was adamant about her fear of being killed by corrupt officials in Chicago) jumped the $2000 bail imposed by the Virginia courts and fled to St. Louis, where she spent a year filing habeas petition with the federal court in St. Louis. However they also dismissed it for failure to exhaust state remedies. The IL Atty Gen then traced her to St. Louise where she was living “under the radar.”

 

She was arrested in St. Louis in April and extradicted to IL. She is now in CCDOC awaiting a trial on perjury (she testified in the Ryan Harris  – two boys civil suit against the city that she was not convicted of making false statements – the Cook Co States Atty. then charged her with perjury for failing to state she had been convicted of Medicaid Vendor Fraud. I witnessed her testimony and she actually didn’t lie. She chose her words VERY carefully.

 

She is now at CCDOC. Sadly as she is a raw foods vegetarian she does not eat much and is starving away. I believe this may be severely damaging her health because as you know medical care is denied at CCDOC for all practical purposes. Starvation may lead to more compulsive thinking and behaviors, as well as increase their fear and frustration. She has self-studied law and is overly verbose and doesn’t understand that the rules are VERY rigid and she can’t get around corrupt IL courts by ignoring the rules that she must exhaust state remedies. I believe she actually has a case that she cannot get justice in the IL courts and that the Fed. Court  should hear her habeas for that reason, but this is not being properly presented to them.

 

The judge in her case ordered a fitness exam. The problem is that the examiner is part of the cabal of corruption. He apparently has found her unfit – in my opinion this is impossible!!!!  I actually examined Dr. Hamilton and filed a fitness exam report with the court a few years back.  I know her well now and have reviewed her pleadings, CV, talked with people she worked with and her sister and wish I could see her now and evaluate her present physical condition, which I believe to be quite dire. I believe they may be using this to get rid of her and may obtain a fraudulent judgment to drug her out of her mind.  She is estranged from her very ill sister Judge Hamilton and has no one to help her but me, a Chicago Police Homicide Detective who can verify that everything I am saying is true and a few friends.  My hands are tied in ways you are well aware of!!! I can’t help her right now but you can. Please do so for your benefit, to protect a witness. Perhaps you can put her in a witness protection program after you verify everything.

 

Dr. Hamilton was treating a person in the trucking department of the City of Chicago, – you know his name.  He has obsessive compulsive disorder. He became director of the dept under the Washington administration and then was demoted under the Daley administration so their corrupt allies could take the job. This man’s condition caused him to zerox papers from that office for the past 20+ years and bring the copies to his house. He has 100s of papers including a document on Mayor Daley’s letterhead made out to one of the truckers who admitted paying a bribe stating that the bribe should be paid to the fund “friends of Madigan.”  Why are you ignoring this?

 

I believe she is in grave danger and may die or have permanent damage from inappropriately prescribed drugs if she is not rescued.

 

PLEASE FOR GOD’S SAKE – PROTECT ONE OF THE BEST WITNESSES YOU HAVE AGAINST THE CABAL OF CORRUPTION – FIND A WAY TO TRANSFER HER TO THE FEDERAL CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION, PRESERVE HER HEALTH, AND INTERVIEW HER!!! PLEASE PLEASE – FOR GOD’S SAKE – DON’T THROW AWAY LIKE A PIECE OF GARBAGE ONE OF THE BEST WITNESSES YOU ARE IGNORING. SHE WAS A TARGET OF VRYDOLIAK AND BURKE!!! She knows the inner workings of Rainbow Push and every Department in Illinois.  She  personally for the last 20+ years knows what has been going on!!!!

 

What is wrong with you!!!!

Jesse Ventura Reveals CIA Spies on State Governments in Violation of their Mission

December 17, 2008

It is imperative to bring honesty, integrity, and transparency back to our government that the new President Obama provide greater oversight to agencies such as the CIA and FBI and stop their constitutional violations and abuses as explained in the following video of interview with former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura.

Constant nibbles at our freedoms and rights does as much harm to America and is as treasonous as a direct attack on our Constitutional rights.

“Be a TEAM Player” – Corruption and Patronage in Illinois

December 13, 2008

How do politicians in Cook County garner 70-80% of the vote – BE A TEAM PLAYER!

Every public employee during political fundraising season is given a book of tickets to the fundraiser – BE A TEAM PLAYER and sell the tickets [or lose your job]!

Signs go up on lawns of employees of the Secretary of State’s Office and Cook County Sheriff’s Office – BE A TEAM PLAYER and support OUR candidates [or no promotions]!

Public employees who take short lunches so that can finish their work are told – “look, you’re making everyone feel bad by not taking the full lunch that you deserve and a little more” – BE A TEAM PLAYER [or lose your job]!

If  a public employee does his work too fast or too well he is told – “look at your colleagues, you are making them look bad – slow down [so we can hire another patronage worker to get out the vote] – don’t hurt their feelings – BE A TEAM PLAYER [or find a new job]!

Vote often and help the dead to vote – BE A TEAM PLAYER [keep the system going]!

If your neighbors don’t vote for the right candidate – perhaps they don’t deserve the same public services that WE deserve – spill their garbage, send out the building inspector to harass them, defame them, discredit them – BE A TEAM PLAY [or you won’t get services either]!

For corporations and businesses doing business with the State, County, or City – don’t forget to “donate” [kick-back, bribery] 10 % of the income the State GIVES you to the political fund “Friends of Madigan” or “Friends of Blagojevic” or “Friends of Jesse Jackson Jr.” or whomever – you know we can’t give contracts to people unless you are willing to BE A TEAM PLAYER!

Don’t forget the Sheriff’s staff, we need them out campaigning at all the polling places [in plain clothes on public time] to make sure no one “interferes” [or observes] our campaigning tactics [dirty deals] – BE A TEAM PLAYER!

Don’t encourage any one immediately connected with the TEAM [Thompson, Daley, Stroger, Divine, Sheahan, Madigans, Burkes, Jones] to negotiate these “donations”,  explain the rules to our employees, or manage the money – BE  TEAM PLAYER!

The team can be informed orally and be at meetings but lets keep this part of the TEAM and don’t put anything in writing – BE A TEAM PLAYER!

Finally – defame, wrongfully arrest, destroy, maliciously prosecute on false charges, even murder any one who gets in our way – Spread Fear to keep the TEAM in check – BE A TEAM PLAYER!

THE ONLY WAY WE WILL BREAK THE CABAL OF CORRUPTION IN ILLINOIS IS FOR THE US ATTORNEY TO ANNOUNCE A GENERAL AMNESTY TO ANYONE WHO COMES FORWARD WITH THE DETAILS ABOUT HOW THE TEAM WORKS AND THE CRIMINAL ACTS THAT WERE PERPETRATED BY THE TEAM, AS WELL AS GUARANTEE THAT ANYONE WHO IS THREATENED OR LOSES HIS JOB FOR COMING FORWARD AS A PATRIOT WILL BE PRETECTED AND THOSE WHO THREATEN THEM WILL GET VERY STIFF SENTENCES. THIS WILL BRING TRANSPARENCY, ELEVIATE FEAR, END THE CORRUPTION, AND ALLOW ILLINOIS TO MOVE ON WITH A LEVEL OF TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT, FREEDOM, HONESTY, AND CONCERN FOR ITS CITIZENS THAT HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN. TRUTH COMMISSIONS WORKED IN SOUTH AFRICA – THEY CAN ALSO WORK IN ILLINOIS.

BE A TEAM PLAYER!

Why is Illinois So Corrupt?

December 12, 2008

Watch the videos on this site:

http://www.crimefilenews.com/2008/12/chicago-corruption-fighter-and-author.html

Robert Cooley is a former mafia lawyer who worked with corrupt Illinois officials and judges. He turned state’s witness and he explains how the Chicago “Machine” still run by Alderman Ed Burke who “picks” the judges and controls the Chicago City Finance Committee and his wife corrupt Illinois Supreme Court Justice Ann Burke still are up to their ears in the usual Illinois corruption. He talks how this cabal of corruption:

1- controls the media,

2-pays off the former U S Attorney and probably still pays off his middle men, hired during this super corrupt era, who hide stuff from present US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald so the only people prosecuted are fall guys like Blagojevic so as to take the heat off the real top dog crooks like:

A- Jim Thompson (former Gov X 16 years, Director of CIA oversight committee under 1st President Bush and member of 911 Commission under W)

B-Madigans (Speaker of the House Michael and his daughter, the most unqualified Illinois Attorney General in history, Lisa, who lauder all the bribery money kicked back from State, County and City contracts through their political fund “friends of Madigan”),

C-the Burkes, and

D-the Daleys(Richard – Chicago Mayor and partner of John Burge [the torturer to get murder confessions] while he was state’s attorney, John – Cook Co. Commissioner who controlled Co. Board President John Stroger Sr and his Son Todd who replaced him, and William, former Commerce Secr. under Clinton and now wants to be Gov of IL and
therefore needs to discredit Blagojevic and Lisa Madigan).

A summary of the “system” running Illinois in my view is as follows:

Illinois for too long has been under the control of the:

1- Kingdom of former Gov. Jim (Prince John) Thompson and

2-his Lords, Chicago Mayor Richard M. and Cook Co. Commissioner John Daley (sons of former Mayor Richard J.), County Board Pres. John Stroger Jr. (son of former County Board Pres. John Stroger),

3-House Speaker Michael and his daughter Atty Gen. Lisa Madigan

4-Alderman Ed (buddy of Fast Ed[dy] now convict Vrdolyak – both of them were leaders against African American Mayor Washington in the “council wars” 20 years ago) and IL. Supreme Court Justice Ann Burke,

5-former Sheriff (of Nottingham) Sheahan, and

6-Former State’s Attorney Richard (Gisbourne) Divine, as well as

7-other Lords such as former Sen. President Emil Jones and now his son Emil Jones Jr.

Political office is inherited in Illinois, elected by political patronage paid for by bribery (10% of all contracts SHALL be donated (kicked-back) to political funds such as “Friends of Madigan” and “Friends of Blagojevic”), and decided in closed back room “deals” (bribes, tit-for-tat, nothing to do with competency or experience, etc.). Its time we have a truth commission in Illinois to give clemency to low level players so that we can reveal the true extent of the corruption, encourage witnesses to come out of the woodwork and reveal their evidence, as well as start anew with a high level of transparency. We desperately need new blood in Illinois and help from the U.S. Attorney in breaking the cycle of corruption, bribery, kick-backs, patronage, and nepotism.

A UIC professor said: Patronage breeds corruption like garbage breeds flies. SOOO true in Illinois.

Other examples of inherited office in Illinois include US Representative Lipinsky and his son who replaced him in Washington DC, and Illinois Senate President Emil Jones and his son who has replaced him in the Senate.

Kim Long who authored a book about government corruption talks how corruption started in the colonial days and has continued with pockets of intense corruption in Illinois, Louisiana, and New Jersey.
