Obama crony "Tony" Rezko sentenced to 10 1/2 years in Chicago corruption scandal. Will a presidential Christmas pardon soon be in the works?

The Chicago Sun newspaper reported 3 days ago that Barack Hussein Obama's Chicago crony, Anthony "Tony" Rezko, was sentenced to 10 1/2 years in Federal prison for his corrupt kickback schemes that involved equally corrupt and likewise convicted former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Of course we all know that Chicago has one of the most corrupt political systems in the country and was the starting ground for community organizer and Harvard professor Barack Hussein Obama. Now I'll wager that Rezko won't get to spend much of that prison sentence behind bars. Obama will likely include him in his annual list of Christmas pardons.
Tony Rezko sentenced to 10-1/2 years in kickback scheme 
But the onetime top fund-raiser to Rod Blagojevich and former friend of Barack Obama remained steady even as St. Eve handed down a 10 ½ year sentence for corruption, describing Rezko’s actions during the former governor’s tenure as “selfish and corrupt.” 
But the National Tea Party group has a bit more information about this story that the Chicago newspapers didn't feel inclined to remind us. The following comes from an email I received from them today.
If the name "Rezko" sounds familiar, it should. That's because Mr. Rezko, a notorious Chicago slumlord, helped a little-known Chicago-area State Senator (who incidentally had just published a book) get a sweetheart deal on a house in Chicago's ritzy Hyde Park (unofficial slogan: "Home of the One-Percenters!"). (Story here):
The (then) junior senator from Illinois has been answering questions on Rezko's involvement in the house purchase since news of it broke in 2006. In the 2005 deal, Obama purchased a house for $300,000 less than its owners were asking, and Rezko simultaneously bought the adjacent lot from the same seller at full price. Obama denies there was anything unusual about the price disparity. He says the price on the house was dropped because it had been on the market for some time but that the price for the adjacent land remained high because there was another offer.
Obama called it "bone-headed" to have engaged in financial dealings with the wealthy Chicago political operative, particularly as federal agents were reported to have been investigating Rezko for alleged corruption. He has also said he was "confident that everything was handled ethically and above board."
The new revelations appear to indicate Obama had involved Rezko at an earlier stage of his home buying process than was previously known, and left many wondering why he had not shared the information sooner.
Perhaps we are being a tad unfair to Mr. Rezko as it's not as if he's Mr. Obama's only questionable friend. The exclusive "Friend of Barrack's" club includes terrorist (and ghostwriter) Bill Ayers, rabid anti-Semite and racist Louis Farrakhan, anti-American Communist "poet" Frank Marshall Davis, radical professor and Palestinian apologist Rashid Khalidi, radical Chicago priest Michael Pfleger, Sacramento Mayor (and former NBA star) Kevin Johnson (who embezzled $800,000 from AmeriCorps) and many more.
There is an Aesop's fable which taught us, "you are known by the company you keep" and Mr. Obama's friends speak volumes about the kind of man that he is.
Yeah, and there is another fable about 'birds of a feather who flock together'. And no one wants one of those birds to start singing so there is some incentive to release him from the 'bird cage'.
Hey, Tony, I realize this is just an after thought but you realize you will have to stay in prison for at least another year before you can hope to get a pardon. Obama can't afford to tarnish his reputation by issuing a pardon before the 2012 elections. That would be too obvious. Sorry about having to remind you about this.



  1. President Barack Obama cannot risk a potential BILLION dollar campaign on a Rezko slip-up...What is not mentioned in your article is that at the time of this purchase Tony Rezko was broke, it was his wife Rita's purchase...Who at the time was making $37,000. dollars a year and did NOT qualify for a loan of this size....HOWEVER Tony Rezko had received a $3 million dollar loan from Nadmi Auchi just day's before the purchase...
    Watch out for the sentencing of Daniel T. Frawley that has been suspiciously postponed 5 times that is currently scheduled for December 20 & 21...Frawley was arrested on March 13, 2006 and started acting as an informant immediately upon arrest...All while he was looking to re-activate his $50 million dollar security contract with the Iraqi government, he was wearing a wire for the feds...When he met with Barack Obama staffer Seamus Ahern on numerous occaisions, he was wearing a wire for the feds...Although Rezko claims to have contributed millions to Obama and his political career, Obama denies knowing Daniel T. Frawley was Rezko's partner...Frawley who could never in a million years get near a U.S. Senator without an indorsement from Rezko...

  2. Anonymous, Thanks for your great comment. This mess in Chicago sounds like an introduction to David Limbaugh's new book, "Crimes Against Liberty".

    Obama's Chicago machine politics was put to good use by David Axelrod, the media strategist and founder of Chicago-based AKP Media who handled Obama’s 2004 Senate race. It was Axelrod who obtained Republican Jack Ryan's sealed divorce records and used them to bully Ryan out of the U.S. Senate race in 2004.
