The Associated Press reports that the Taliban is returning to areas once cleared by foreign forces, as the U.S. announces its conclusion to the combat mission…which had been announced long in advance. That was very good strategy — for the enemy – they always like to know the forecast in advance. Taliban insurgents have actually announced their defeat of U.S. and allies in the 13-year conflict. Does anyone want to make bets whether or not Afghanistan will return to terrorist rule and women will return to total subjugation?

Cops – nationwide – have had it with the hard core campaign to demonize all officers of law enforcement who keep our towns and cities safe 24/7, risking their lives every day on behalf of the citizens. It may not have been classy, but the turning of backs by uniformed cops to those who wrongly degrade and accuse police of systemic wrong doings was well earned by the mayor of New York City, which also stands as symbolism for all the anti-police naysayers, including the president and his hateful attorney general. They certainly have handled these incidents wrongly, including the governor of Missouri, considering the fact that the two incidents targeted for protests were never the result of racial profiling at all. This is called manufacturing a protest when there is nothing to protest. Police morale is at an all-time low, which does not bode well for American citizens in general.

3 The Foreign Stage
Russia, Ukraine, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, ISIS, Egypt, China, North Korea, Boco Haram, al Qaeda, Somalia, Pakistan, Iran, Israel, Turkey, and et al. Name one place where conditions and/or relations have improved in the last six years. Perhaps we could say that Egypt is better, having recovered from the year of Sharia law under Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, but the Egyptians did that on their own via the will of the people, overthrowing the Brotherhood despite their support by Obama and Hillary. We certainly don’t hear much about Egypt from the administration since Morsi failed.
3 Christian Genocide
Little is heard from President Obama or the United Nations about the barbaric killings of Christians – adults and children – and burnings of Christian churches throughout the middle-east. According to Wiki-Islam, a Christian is killed every five minutes for their beliefs. Nine of the top ten countries that practice Christian persecution, are Islamic countries. In 2012, Turkey was considered in the top 16 of worst countries for Christian persecution. A secular study shows that Christianity is in danger of being totally wiped out in biblical heartlands because of Islamic oppression. Where is the voice of the UN? Where is the voice of the free world? Where is the voice of America?

4 Most Admired
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have been named “Most Admired” male and female in a Gallup Poll. Juxtapose that to every competent poll that cites Obama’s track record as president meets disapproval by 50 percent, or more, of voters. Hillary Clinton is certainly the most famous, but it’s inconceivable that she would be admired by voters who can read and write. This is a Secretary of State who accomplished nothing in office other than racking up travel miles and hundreds of photo-ops, who bolted from sight for three months after the Benghazi attack leaving four Americans dead, and who supported the Muslim Brotherhood, and who traveled with her top aide for fifteen years…a Saudi woman who family relatives are all connected to the Muslim Brotherhood…and organization dedicated to the destruction of America. Admired? Are we kidding?

The Islamic State, who President Obama claims is “not Islamic,” has commandeered Iraq and parts of Syria, and are moving forward toward Lebanon, Jordan and the Gaza Strip. Bombing raids from U.S. military appears to have accomplished little as the terror organization continues to grow and non-Muslims are facing forced conversions or death by grotesque means, including the live beheadings of children. What is even more worrisome, is where the ISIS is heading once the conquer their present goals, because it certainly isn’t going to stop there. Once they commandeer Gaza and other nations, they will have to face Egypt where they denounced fundamentalism two years ago. And of course, tiny Israel sits surrounded by enemies on three sides as our president denounces Israel for building new homes. Hmmm

6 Illegal Immigration
Of course, we know there is no such thing anymore. “Illegal” has always meant that strict laws were in existence and that the breaking of those laws rendered the law breakers guilty, and subject to punishment/deportation. Such laws have been diminished to non-laws by our administration, basically allowing people to flood our nation at will while tying the hands of law enforcers from doing their jobs. What people don’t realize is that 40 percent of illegal immigration comes from overstayed visas, thousands of whom come in from Islamic countries.
One can only imagine where this is going in the next generation.

7 2014 Celebrity Deaths
All death are tragedies and great losses for those who loved them. But we treat celebrity deaths with great reverence only because they were known and loved by millions, not a few. Topping the list as the greatest losses in 2014, for this blogger, are: Robin Williams, Joan Rivers, Mike Nichols, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Lauren Bacall, James Garner, Ariel Sharon, Shirley Temple, Sid Caesar, Mickey Rooney, Maya Angelou, Eli Wallach, James Brady.

8 The “Interview” Movie Fiasco
Bottom line: Free speech won out. Other nations cannot intimidate America with threatening rhetoric, from expressing our 1st amendment rights. Sony capitulated and went for the “risk” despite threats from North Korea, and showed the movie in select theaters which, thus far, has not resulted in violent acts. But…has anyone ever wondered why there has never been a major movie out of Hollywood about the life of Muhammed or the origins of Islam? Every other major figure in ancient history has a bio film to his/her credit…but not this one. And, there never will be. Such is the example that fear and intimidation really does work.

10 Happy New Year
Wishing all my readers a healthy and happy 2015. Thanks for indulging my writings and for all your insightful comments, even if we don’t always all agree.
Friday, December 19, 2014
We have often heard Valerie Jarrett is the de-facto President. That might not be far from the truth.
Our team has been exhaustively researching this woman,...again.
We went back over notes, articles and saved links, as well digging deeper into new documents that we've gotten a hold of.
Valerie Jarret is very powerful.
I am hoping to keep our article brief, but there is an awful lot to share.
As you may know, Valerie Jarrett is Obama,'s closest cabinet member. That is no coincidence. She is one who helped get him where he is.
Sure, he knew all the street radicals, but it was Valerie who really got his foot in the door. Without her, he'd still be hustling votes for other "Made" Chicago politicians.
First we'll start with a little personal backround on Ms Jarrett, then we will lay out the sheer magnitude of the corruption that infests Chicago and has now taken hold in the White House itself.
Valerie Bowman Jarrett is an American who was born in Iran, to two American parents. She lived in Iran until the age of 5, then London for another year. The family moved to Chicago when Valerie was almost 7.
From Key Wiki: http://www.keywiki.org/ index.php/Valerie_Jarrett
"Jarrett received her B.A. from Stanford University in 1978 and her J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School in 1981. Jarrett went to the exclusive University of Chicago Lab School before transferring to her mother’s alma mater, Northfield Mt. Hermon, in western Massachusetts for the last two years of high school.
"After graduating from the University of Michigan Law School, she went to work for Chicago’s first African-American mayor, Harold Washington, whose election many Sixties radicals attributed to themselves. After Washington’s death in 1987, she stayed on under his successor, Richard Daley. In City Hall, she and her colleague Susan Sher recruited Michelle Robinson, then engaged to Barack Obama, and Jarrett quickly melded her way into their lives.
Prior to joining the Obama Administration, Jarrett served as a Director of corporate and not for profit boards, including Chairman of the University of Chicago Medical Center Board of Trustees, and Vice Chair of the University of Chicago Board of Trustees. She was a Director of the Local Initiative Support Corporation, The Joyce Foundation, and a Trustee of the Museum of Science and Industry.
A former Deputy Corporation Counsel for Finance and Development under Harold Washington, Jarrett continued to work in the mayor's office into the 1990s.
In 1991, while Deputy Chief of Staff for Mayor Richard Daley, Jarrett hired Michelle Robinson, then engaged to Barack Obama.
Valerie Jarrett ran the finances for Obama’s 2004 Senate bid and served as treasurer of Obama's HOPEFUND.
Friendship with Marilyn Katz
Marilyn Katz worked with Students for a Democratic Society. She is a personal friend of Jarrett's. "
Ok. Now that you have some background, we are going to take you on an epic adventure. This adventure is the truth and I will corroroborate the facts with docs and links.
This adventure will take us beyond Chicago, beyond the White House , all the way to the mid East and back.
We will introduce you to some of the most corrupt operatives, foreign Billionaires and many more shady players and events.
Valerie Jarrett Not only worked for powerful Mayor, Harold Johnson, but she was also the daughter in law of another Powerful Chicago politician and Socialite, Vernon Jarrett, a full blown Communist/Progressive. I won't go into too much detail on him, but his Communist associations are well documented and easy to find.
After Washington left office, Valerie stayed on with the new Mayor, Daley.
Through these powerful men and her position inside the Chicago machine, Valerie soon en massed astounding power.
From Key Wiki:
"Jarrett became the President and Chief Executive Officer of The Habitat Company on January 31, 2007. She had served as Executive Vice President of Habitat for 12 years. Prior to that, Jarrett served for eight years in Chicago government as Deputy Corporation Counsel for Finance and Development, Deputy Chief of Staff for Mayor Richard M. Daley, and Commissioner of the Department of Planning and Development. Before her city government service, Ms. Jarrett practiced law with two private law firms. From 1995 to 2003, Jarrett served as Chairman of the Chicago Transit Board. Jarrett also served as Chairman of the Board of the Chicago Stock Exchange from April 2004 through April 2007. She was a Director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago from January 2006 through April 2007.
Jarrett is the chief executive of The Habitat Company which managed Grove Parc Plaza from 2001 until this winter and co-managed an even larger subsidized complex in Chicago that was seized by the federal government in 2006, after city inspectors found widespread problems. Officials at Woodlawn Preservation say the government didn't give them enough money to properly maintain Grove Parc. Habitat's Jarrett declined to comment on Grove Parc in particular but said it is hard to manage something you don't own. However other Chicago developers and housing activists said that federal subsidies can be adequate if managed properly. They said Grove Parc stood apart for how badly it fell into disrepair."
Jarrett pretty much had the whole city under her control, by the time she was chosen to be in the White House as Obama's closest Cabinet member. (She was a consideration to take over Obama's vacated seat, but that got too scandalous for her to be associated with. She had to stay above the fray, so it wouldn't jeopardize the agenda.)
Jarret didn't join the Obama administration. The Obama's joined hers!
Jarrett hired Michelle. Then she hired Obama. Both young lawyers with connections of their own. They were already associated with the radical Community organizers, had the key placements in Sidley Law firm, via Bernadine Dohrn and were upwardly mobile in the Chicago system.
When Jarrett left Daley's office to go to the University of Chicago Medical center, Jarrett took Michelle with her, while Obama was to continue in the Daley administration. Obama was being groomed by them, while Jarrett was advancing herself and keeping Michelle close.
If you look at the departments inside the Mayors office, the placements in financial institution boards of directors and her own development corportations, you will understand just how powerful she really is.
Not a brick got laid, a grant awarded, a loan got approved, a subsity or a permit got issued in Chicago, unless Jarret controlled it.
Jarrett made sure she had lawyers at her beck and call, including the Obama's.
As a matter of fact, Jarrett partnered with another powerful Chicagoan, Allison Davis, in her development corporations..
Davis was well connected in his own right. He was the son of Allison Davis Sr., the late University of Chicago professor.
He was the senior partner of Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland , (Remember this firm, it will come up later.)
Davis was also appointed to Illinois State Board of Investment by Ill Gov Rod Blagojevich.
Together, Jarrett and Davis were a formidable team with a near monopoly on all Chicago development
Jarrett had bankers, lawyers, investors, and politicians at her beck and call.
Let's talk about some of the land development schemes that Jarrett and her corporations operate and some of the players she's connected to.
The Rezko Connection:
Judicial Watch, www.judicialwatch.org ," has obtained documents linking Valerie Jarrett , an advisor to Barack Obama and the co-chairman of the President-Elect’s transition team, to a series of real estate scandals, including several housing projects operated by convicted felon and Obama fundraiser/friend Antoin "Tony" Rezko.
According to the documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Illinois Secretary of State, Valerie Jarrett served as a board member for several organizations that provided funding and support for Chicago housing projects operated by real estate developers and Obama financial backers Rezko and Allison Davis. (Davis is also Obama’s former boss.) Jarrett was a member of the Board of Directors for the Woodlawn Preservation and Investment Corporation along with several Davis and Rezko associates, as well as the Fund for Community Redevelopment and Revitalization, an organization that worked with Rezko and Davis.
(According to press reports, housing projects operated by Davis and Rezko have been substandard and beset with code violations. The Chicago Sun Times reported that one Rezko-managed housing project was "riddled with problems — including squalid living conditions…lack of heat, squatters and drug dealers.")
As Chief Executive Officer of the Habitat Company Jarrett also managed a controversial housing project located in Obama’s former state senate district called Grove Parc Plaza. According to the Boston Globe the housing complex was considered "uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage…In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale — a score so bad the buildings now face demolition." Ms. Jarrett refused to comment to the Globe on the conditions of the complex.
"Like Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett is a product of the corrupt Chicago political machine. And it is no stretch to say that she was a slumlord," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "We have real concerns about Jarrett’s ethics. Washington already has plenty of corruption. We don’t need to import more of it from Chicago."
Let's talk about Grove Parc , Habitat, Lawnsdale & Woodlawn.
Jarrett is the chief executive of Habitat Co., which managed Grove Parc Plaza from 2001 until 2007 and co-managed an even larger subsidized complex in Chicago that was seized by the federal government in 2006, after city inspectors found widespread problems.
Allison Davis, a major fund-raiser for Obama's US Senate campaign and a former lead partner at Obama's former law firm. Davis, a developer, was involved in the creation of Grove Parc and has used government subsidies to rehabilitate more than 1,500 units in Chicago, including a North Side building cited by city inspectors last year after chronic plumbing failures resulted in raw sewage spilling into several apartments.
Antoin "Tony" Rezko, perhaps the most important fund-raiser for Obama's early political campaigns and a friend who helped the Obamas buy a home in 2005. Rezko's company used subsidies to rehabilitate more than 1,000 apartments, mostly in and around Obama's district, then refused to manage the units, leaving the buildings to decay to the point where many no longer were habitable.
Campaign finance records show that six prominent developers - including Jarrett, Davis, and Rezko - collectively contributed more than $175,000 to Obama's campaigns over the last decade and raised hundreds of thousands more from other donors. Rezko alone raised at least $200,000, by Obama's own accounting.
One of those contributors, Cecil Butler, controlled Lawndale Restoration, the largest subsidized complex in Chicago, which was seized by the government in 2006 after city inspectors found more than 1,800 code violations."
VIA: http:// www.brayincandy.com/ id168.html "Grove Parc Plaza was given $4 Mil to upgrade the 500 apartment structure. At that time it was given a failing HUD grade of 82 and 3 yrs and $4 Mil later was declared unlivable w/a grade of 13. It was declared unlivable due to fire damage, mice running in the halls and roofs collapsing.
they wouldn’t turn on the heat for the building during -20 degree temps. She was forced to turn on the heat after being sued by the courts.
One of her single payer type projects was the Lawndale Restoration. It was around 1200 apts in 95 buildings. Jarrett poured over $70 Million govt dollars into these buildings which lasted barely 10 yrs, before they were condemned by the Feds only to start over. This was supposed to be a private/public partnership when in reality it was a cash machine for corrupt politicians through Rezko’s money laundering machine.
For her outstanding work as a slum organizer in the Habitat Corp she made $300K/yr and another $550K in deferred compensation. She made an additional $350K as a member of a number of Boards spread around Chicago."
Enter Obama and Rezko: http:// www.noquarterusa.net/blog/ 3297/ boston-globe-expose-part-ii -barack-obama-d-slumlord-i s-aloof-oblivious-dangerou s/
Boston Globe Expose':
Barack Obama was among the many Chicago residents who shared Daley’s conviction that private companies would make better landlords than the Chicago Housing Authority ….
He once told the Chicago Tribune that he had briefly considered becoming a developer of affordable housing. But after graduating from Harvard Law School in 1991, he turned down a job with Tony Rezko’s development company, Rezmar , choosing instead to work at the civil rights law firm Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, then led by Allison Davis.
The firm represented a number of nonprofit companies that were partnering with private developers to build affordable housing with government subsidies ….
Obama translated that belief into legislative action as a state senator. In 2001, Obama and a Republican colleague, William Peterson, sponsored a successful bill that increased state subsidies for private developers. The law let developers designated by the state raise up to $26 million a year by selling tax credits to Illinois residents. For each $1 in credits purchased, the buyer was allowed to decrease his taxable income by 50 cents.
Obama also cosponsored the original version of a bill creating an annual fund to subsidize rents for extremely low-income tenants , although it did not pass until 2005, after he had left the state Senate.
“He was very passionate about the issues,” said Julie Dworkin of the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, who worked with Obama on affordable housing issues. “He was someone we could go to and count on him to be there .”
The developers gave Obama their financial support. Jarrett, Davis, and Rezko all served on Obama’s campaign finance committee when he won a seat in the US Senate in 2004 .
Over the next nine years , Rezmar used more than $87 million in government grants, loans, and tax credits to renovate about 1,000 apartments in 30 Chicago buildings . Companies run by the partners also managed many of the buildings, collecting government rent subsidies.
Rezmar collected millions in development fees but fell behind on mortgage payments almost immediately . On its first project, the city government agreed to reduce the company’s monthly payments from almost $3,000 to less than $500.
As Obama ascended, Rezko became one of his largest fund-raisers. And in 2005, Rezko and his wife helped the Obamas purchase the house where they now live.
Eleven of Rezmar’s buildings were located in the district represented by Obama, containing 258 apartments. The building without heat in January 1997, the month Obama entered the state Senate, was in his district. So was Jones’s building with rats in the walls and Frizzell’s building that lacked insulation. And a redistricting after the 2000 Census added another 350 Rezmar apartments to the area represented by Obama.
But Obama has contended that he knew nothing about any problems in Rezmar’s buildings.
Allison Davis, Obama’s former law firm boss, dabbled in development for years while he worked primarily as a lawyer. He participated in the development of Grove Parc Plaza. And in 1996, Davis left his law firm to pursue a full-time career as an affordable housing developer, fueled by the subsidies from the Daley administration and aided, on occasion, by Obama himself.
Over roughly the past decade, Davis’s companies have received more than $100 million in subsidies to renovate and build more than 1,500 apartments in Chicago, according to a Chicago Sun-Times tally. In several cases, Davis partnered with Tony Rezko. In 1998 the two men created a limited partnership to build an apartment building for seniors on Chicago’s South Side. Obama wrote letters on state Senate stationery supporting city and state loans for the project." (Remember, Allison Davis is Jarret's partner and he's Former Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland.)
Obama always had an interest in public housing. In fact, Rezko recruited Obama when Obama was a student at Harvard Law in order to serve in some capacity in Rezko’s slum landlord enterprise.
Obama as a state legislator passed and authored bills to provide tax credits and other incentives for private companies to transform public housing into private-public partnerships that would yield profit to investors such as Rezko, Allison Davis and Valerie Jarrett.
Mayor Richard Daley and Obama both participated in this effort.
Obama passed and authored these laws as Rezko’s tenements in his district were deteriorating.
Obama even wrote letters to City Commissioners in order to obtain more revenue for Rezko when residents of Rezko’s tenements were filing complaints, complaints Obama may or may not have received. As Obama states, “it is possible” his office received complaints from Rezko’s slum tenants. Obama wrote these letters for Rezko at a time when City Commissioners knew of the squalor plaguing Rezko’s slum landlord business.
Valerie Jarrett. The Real Power & Corruption Behind The Oval Office. Part 2.
In Part 1, we told you of how Valerie Jarrett controls developing in Chicago. We told you of all the boards she sits on, her Development companies, her partner Allison Davis and her connections to Obama and Michelle.
Now we want to introduce you to other movers and shakers in the Chicago corruption machine that Valerie Jarrett controls.
Nadhmi Auchi is an Iraqi Billionaire. He was convicted of fraud in the oil for food scandal. Auchi is an arms dealer, Oil mogul and invests in many real estate properties. Auchi was barred from entering the US due to his fraud conviction.There is a lot of info on Auchi out there. More on Auchi: http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Nadhmi_Auchi
Three weeks before Obama bought his mansion, Auchi loaned Rezko $3 million Dollars. The mansion deal was arranged by Rezko, who we know was already doing business with Jarrett. Remember, she was on the boards and committees that controlled real estate & development in Chicago.
The bank was Mutual bank of Harvey , run by Amrish Mahajan.
The data available in the Sun-Times spreadsheet is corroborated by the following data, which is democratically available at the Federal Election Commission ‘s website:
CHICAGO, IL 60607
VIA OBAMA FOR ILLINOIS INC
12/20/2003 500.00 24020030170
04/14/2004 1000.00 24020461757
Not only was Mahajan a member of Rezko’s bundling network; his bank, the Mutual Bank of Harvey, granted Rita Rezko the $500,000 mortgage she needed in order to purchase the lot on which the Obama mansion in Chicago sits. As many of you may recall, the Obamas could not have purchased the mansion they could not afford unless transactions for the mansion and the lot closed on the same day. Obama needed to locate someone who would buy the lot, and he approached Rezko, the convicted slumlord with whom Obama toured the property before they mutually agreed to the following arrangement :
The home and lot sales closed on June 15, 2005. A land trust controlled by the Obamas bought the house for $1.65 million, and the Obamas secured a $1.32 million mortgage from Northern Trust to complete that purchase. That same day, Rezko’s wife, Rita Rezko, bought the side lot for $625,000. A $37,000- a-year Cook County employee, she secured a $500,000 mortgage from Mutual Bank of Harvey.
The structure of this transaction begs the following question: What bank would lend a government employee who earns $37,000 per annum a $500,000 mortgage? What bank would assume such a risk?
The Mutual Bank of Harvey, of course, for the Mutual Bank of Harvey’s President is a man who is deeply connected to the Chicago machine that backed Barack Obama. Indeed, Amrish Mahajan was one of Mayor Daley’s first political appointments in 1989, when he was named to a seat on Chicago’s Plan Commission, where he would be joined by Obama’s former boss and Rezko’s business partner Allison Davis and by Valerie Jarrett, Daley’s Chief of Staff who chaired the Commission from 1991-1995 . Mahajan, in other words, worked with those who devised and profited from Daley’s failed public housing experiment in Chicago , a public housing policy Obama helped fund as state Senator and US Senator .
Rezko, according to the Boston Globe , was one of the major beneficiaries of Obama’s legislative advocacy for funding of Daley’s public housing experiment. Other major beneficiaries are Jarrett and Allison Davis. Mahajan was also a beneficiary, for his bank had made $3.4 million dollars in loans to Tony Rezko’s slum landlord business since 2002 . A banker for one of the slumlords who benefitted from the Daley housing program Obama helped bankroll, Mahajan was returning a favor when he wrote a $500,000 mortgage in 2005 for the wife of one of his clients. Although Tony’s financial problems were mounting in 2005 , and althoughRita earned only $35,000 per annum, Mahajan underwrote the mortgage.

Jarrett's long connections to Miner
" Jarrett was an associate between 1981 and 1984 at Ballard, Shepard and Pole Ltd. and then moved on to a real estate practice at Sonnenschein, Carlin, Nath and Rosenthal. But Jarrett "wasn't happy with private practice," recalled Judd Miner , ". . . and she wanted to get involved in the Washington administration." Miner recruited Jarrett to the city's Law Department with the corporation counsel under the late Mayor Harold Washington.
According to the Sun Times, “A few years later, back in private practice, Miner would make another recruiting coup: a young Harvard Law School graduate named Barack Obama. And over at City Hall, Jarrett, Daley's deputy chief of staff, would hire another lawyer fleeing corporate life, Michelle Robinson, Obama's then-fiancée.” Could it be possible that Jarrett already knew Obama at this point if she had worked for Miner? The Sun Times also mentions that Obama and Michelle's marriage might never have happened if they had not met at the Chicago law frim of Sidley & Austin in the summer of 1989. Michelle Robinson was the lawyer assigned to be his adviser. Somewhat curious....
It is noteworthy to mention that after Jarrett left Daley’s office she took Michelle Obama with her to the Chicago Housing Department to be her assistant. This coincided precisely with the time Obama was installed at Davis, Miner, Barnhill and Galland where he was writing the “bids” for Tony Rezko’s companies. Is it possible that these bids were coincidentally being approved by Jarrett and Michelle? Very curious…" VIA: http://theventingpost.com/ candidconcepts/ 114-who-is-valerie-jarrett- part-ii.html
Let's talk about the mansion. It is a known fact there is a lawyer named on the Deed. That lawyer is Micelli. Micelli just so happens to work at Miner Barnhill & Galland, Allison Davis' old firm. Micelli is also listed as esquire on many other Rezko, Jarrett, Davis & Obama documents.
"In 1993, Obama became an associate lawyer with a small Chicago firm, Davis, Miner, Barnhill and Galland . It was during this time that he first became involved with a real estate developer named Antoin “Tony” Rezko, who was subsequently indicted on charges of fraud, extortion and money laundering and will go on trial on Feb. 25. William Miceli, Obama’s supervisor at the law firm, said the firm represented the Woodlawn Preservation and Investment Corp., a nonprofit group that redeveloped a run-down property on Chicago’s South Side with Rezko.
What’s interesting to note is that the person the Washington Post interviewed regarding the Rezko-Obama ties, William Miceli, is the same person who is listed as the “owner” of Obama’s Chicago Greenwood home." via: http:// deathby1000papercuts.com/ 2008/12/ obamas-rezko-ties-cook-coun ty-clerks-office-lists-att orney-as-owner-of-obama-ch icago-home/
Now we know Micelli involved with Woodlawn, you know Valerie is involved We went over it.

Auchi Bankrolled Rezko, Mahajan and the mansion deal.
Micelli is the lawyer who aided the deal.
Rezko facilitated it.
Valerie Jarrett was a long time insider, so she got a piece of every land deal. Micelli represents her Development Corp.
Allison Davis is former Partner in Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland.
Judd Miner is a City Law director, partner in Miner Barnhill & Galland, Valerie Jarrett & Obama's boss on a few occaisons
Mahajan is one of the banks, but Shore Bank , Broadway bank, and Northern Trust are in the mix.

Dear Chief Bratton,
Say something, or quit. If you don’t know you’re being used like a puppet in a national movement by anti-American factions with an anti-American agenda, then you should not hold the office you’re in.
You’re too smart to be fooled. The undercurrent is about much more than a few police brutality cases, valid or invalid. The undercurrent is about anarchy and a turnaround in the democratic process, led by an out-going President, an out-going Attorney General and black radical leaders in the likes of Al Sharpton who not only foments disorder, he has been given a huge platform, aided by a complicit national media base.
This nationwide movement is no accident, it is obviously well-planned and nonspontaneous. You know, and we know, that this is about social change where the law is undermined by the lawless, and the law enforcers are portrayed as the evil doers, while real evil doers are esteemed and martyrized.
Complaints about overuse of force by police will always arise as an issue, because police deal with violent people, hardened criminals, anarchists and crazies…all the time. And sometimes, yes, cops will get carried away and if they are wrong, they should be held to account. One million cops in this country handle over one million violent crimes a year, not to mention many more millions of drug crimes, sex crimes, domestic crimes, thievery, traffic, emergencies of all kinds and life-saving events. Physical confrontations are inevitable, particularly when violators resist arrest. From the many calls for police service, a few complaints will be filed and some of them will be valid. That’s life in the crime world….the world in which police officers are immersed daily.
Police officers must have an above average IQ to pass the entry test. Therefore, they cannot be so stupid as to purposefully target people of color for harassment, false arrests and brutality. Not in today’s world, where cops are under constant scrutiny. Those days are long gone. You know that. Some of these controversial officers may have erred, but if they did, it had nothing – nothing – to do with race. But it’s what your boss, the mayor, wants us to believe, it’s what Sharpton, Holder and Obama want us to believe. It’s what some irresponsible journalists want us to believe.
You’ve been in law enforcement nearly fifty years, which includes leadership of a half dozen large agencies. I know you don’t believe that Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Trayvon, and the others, had anything to do with racism or profiling. You know that, but you remain mute.
The hard reality is that black men commit 73 percent of murders and other violent crime in America while they only comprise 13 percent of the population. Cops don’t ask to be called to robberies, or domestic violence in progress, or murders and burglaries. But they go. And in today’s world, their peril is not only the criminals who would do them harm, but the watchdogs and sofa critics who want to see them vilified, hated and psychologically disarmed.
If they are ever successful, it will ultimately bring the downfall of this great country.
Chief Bratton, I watched you standing behind the new mayor of New York City as he delivered speech after speech, broad brushing police officers as monsters. Why are you lock-step with the race baiters asserting that race discrimination is systemic in police agencies when you KNOW it is not true? How can you stomach that? How can you look yourself in the mirror knowing you are made to appear supportive of this kind of anti-American, anti-police and untrue rhetoric?
You’ve had a great career, Chief. You’ve accomplished a lot. You are worthy of admiration. Don’t spoil it now by being a part of this charade. You’re too good for that.
Other police professionals, chiefs and police unions are speaking out. Your voice would carry more weight than any. Come on, Chief, you don’t really need the job. The people need to know what is really happening from behind the scenes. Do the right thing. Tell the truth.
Signed, Marshall Frank, Captain, retired, Miami-Dade Police Department, 30 years, author.

FERGUSON: BAD GUYS VERSUS GOOD GUYS
IT'S TIME TO STOP EXCUSING THUGGERY
It would seem that most parents of the inner cities don’t teach growing kids to respect authority and the rules of law. Both are necessary to an orderly society. If Michael Brown had grown up being praised for good behavior and disciplined for thuggery, he would probably be alive today.
The deaths of Trayvon Martin (2012) and Michael Brown (2014) would never have happened if not for blatant disregard for the law and the people who we entrust to protect. While the media focus is entirely on the allegations that George Zimmerman (2012) and Officer Darren Wilson (2014) committed acts of racist violence toward “children,” we hear little discussion about their actual behavior.
Trayvon Martin was a seventeen year-old Miami resident who was suspended from school for two weeks for having marijuana in his book bag, not to mention unexplained female jewelry and a burglar tool. He’d also been suspended on previous occasions for truancy and graffiti.
During his suspension, Martin was sent to his father’s home in Sanford, Florida, who lived in a modest gated development with a history of break-ins. George Zimmerman was the neighborhood watch coordinator whose job it was to report crimes and any suspicious behavior to the police. That’s what happened on the night of February 26, 2012, when Zimmerman spotted a suspicious male walking in the darkness wearing a hoodie. When Zimmerman called the police, the dispatcher suggested that he back off until the police arrived. Nevertheless, Zimmerman kept the suspicious man in sight, and upon leaving his vehicle was suddenly confronted by an angry Trayvon Martin, who said, “You got a problem with me?”
Now startled, Zimmerman stopped and replied, “No.”
According to Zimmerman, Trayvon said, “Now you do.” Martin delivered a hard fist – a sucker punch – into Zimmerman’s face, knocking him to the ground. That was an act of aggression and violence.
Trayvon Martin then sat atop Zimmerman pummeling him until the watchman was able to retrieve his gun and fire one shot. Trayvon Martin died. George Zimmerman survived, though his head was bleeding front and back from several wounds.
Here’s the wrap:
Trayvon Martin was 6’2” and an athletic football player. Zimmerman was 5’8” and unmatched to Martin’s power.
Trayvon Martin only had to walk two more houses to reach his house and ignore Zimmerman.
Even though Zimmerman continued to follow, he committed no crime. He merely kept Martin in sight.
Trayvon Martin initiated the act of thuggery by beating Zimmerman.
Despite all this, George Zimmerman was vilified in the media and the black community as a racist. The Jacksonville State Attorney filed charges against Zimmerman to appease the black power bloc, knowing it was a losing case and that Zimmerman only acted in self defense.
Along comes 18 year-0ld Michael Brown, on August 9th, 2014. Brown physically bullied a store merchant while stealing (a felony, strong-arm robbery) and was then confronted by a patrolling police officer who only told him and his friend to stop walking in the middle of the street, as a police officer should do. Brown’s response was a surprise physical attack on the cop through the car window, sucker-punching the cop in the face and then going for his firearm.
These are not the actions of a poor, innocent, teenage black child.
Michael Brown had now committed two felonies, including an attack on the officer, to which the officer gave chase (a lawful action) and demanded, at gunpoint, that Brown lay on the ground. Instead, Brown charged the cop, twice. The “boy” was almost 6’5” and weighed 300 pounds. The cop fired his gun in self defense.
All the shoulda coulda scenarios are great for the sofa judges, but when you’re not in that insta-moment, no one can say exactly what they would have done different. The bottom line is that Michael Brown brought about the end result by his own actions. He acted like a thug, committing two violent felonies within minutes of each other, conceivably to impress his little friend. Nevertheless, this had nothing to do with racism.
No one wants to hear about poor kids who are killed. But the cold, hard facts cannot be denied.
Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin broke laws and violently assaulted guardians of the community acting like thugs.
The guardians of the community acted lawfully while executing their responsibilities.
Both decedents brought about their own demise.
Neither were acts of racism. Not even close.
Zimmerman and Wilson are relegated to live in hiding, though innocent of any crime.
Race baiters rule. Just ask the merchants of Ferguson, Missouri.
If people would back away and view the entire fiasco from aside, the shootings, the players, the media, the politicians and the race baiters, one thing comes clear: Bad guys are the good guys; good guys are the bad guys.
There’s something wrong with that.
