How many Dems are sleeping restlessly in Chicago, these nights? What sort of damning info does “Hot Rod” have to trade for a lighter sentence? This story has just begun, says Jack Kelly in The Toledo Blade.

In The Chicago Trib, today: Looks like Raum Emanuel did speak with the IL Governor’s office about possible picks for Obama’s Senate seat: Emanuel delivered a list of candidates who would be “acceptable” to Obama, which in itself is not incriminating, but why did they feel the need to lie about the contact?  Moreover, Emanuel, the “president-elect adviser”  was in contact with Blago and others about the special election for his own House seat, which involved helping the Guv land “a new job at a non-profit organization”. (The SEIU).

More about the conversations at Hot Air; “What did they know, and when did they know it?:

Barack Obama and his team chose not to give that honest and common-sense explanation.  Instead, they issued categorical denials that Obama and his staff had contacted Blagojevich or his staff about the succession.  It’s a mystifying claim, and one that will apparently get proven false fairly easily.  Now, instead of just saying that contact existed but that no one had tried making deals, they have thrown away their credibility on a very foolish point — which will lead to the conclusion that Team Obama has something very significant to hide.

Emanuel may need to pack his bags, but Washington DC may not be where he’s headed…

The AP: Blagojevich began the day praying with several ministers in his home before heading to his office, telling them he is innocent and will be vindicated “when you hear each chapter completely written,” according to one of the pastors.

KJL: “Finally, a political scandal you can talk to your children about.. No room at the Mayflower. No MySpace page. No gay-American announcement. Just good and evil and money and power corrupting.”

I’m so glad the Lightworker was elected to “clean up Washington”.

Obama’s Chicago Clown Posse,

In case you missed it, here’s that font of holiness, Rev. Wright sermonizing in a special appearance at TUCC , last Sunday, about the December 7th bombing of Hiroshima in 1941.

And here’s Bill Ayers on Hardball, earlier this week, conceding to Chris Matthews that peaceful demonstrations were “perhaps” more effective than bombs in swaying public opinion about the war.

See Ronald Radosh at FrontPageMagazine for a take-down of  the interview, where Matthews: allowed Ayers to get away with everything, and to use Ayers’ 10 minutes of air time to repeat his standard litany of lies over and over”.

Flight 93 Memorial Blogburst #51 (UPDATED)

“The terrorist memorializing features all point to each other”

Blogburst logo, petition

Crescent video, Part 2, set to everybody’s favorite gunslinger music:

If you have a fast connection, there is a high quality viewing option at the lower right of the viewing screen here.

Part 1 focused on the blatant Islamic symbolism in the Flight 93 memorial, and on Tom Burnett’s efforts to stop this desecration of his son’s grave. Part 2 is about the terrorist memorializing features.

On first examination, the Islamic symbol shapes in the Flight 93 memorial are found to be slightly imprecise:

The giant crescent does not point quite exactly at Mecca.

The Sacred Ground Plaza that sits roughly in the position of the star on a crescent and star flag does not sit exactly in the position of an Islamic star.

But additional features turn these imprecise Islamic shapes into precise Islamic symbol shapes:

Inside the Sacred Ground Plaza sits a separate section of Memorial Wall, inscribed with the 9/11 date, that IS placed in the exact position of an Islamic star.

Remove the symbolically “broken off” parts of the crescent of Embrace (now called a broken circle) and the remaining crescent structure–what symbolically remains standing in the wake of 9/11–points EXACTLY at Mecca.

To find these additional features, just follow the terrorist brick road: the 44 inscribed translucent memorial blocks on the flight path (matching the number of passengers, crew, AND TERRORISTS).

No need to have seen Part 1 before seeing Part 2. All of the parts of this video series will stand on their own, with only a small amount of overlap. There is a brief review of the Mecca orientation, because that is what leads to the discovery of the 44 blocks, but the blocks then lead to this whole further array of terrorist memorializing features.

If there is a group that you want to show this to–conservative campus group, church group, poker group, or just a little half-time patriotism–ask Alec Rawls about getting the video in full resolution, or in television viewing format.

UPDATE (January 11): For you libtards who don’t understand what this is about, and think it’s some kind of joke:

Here it is in plain language, (from AJ Strata in a letter to the Memorial’s organizers) so maybe even your puny little brains can understand why this memorial must be scrapped:

If this design survives there will always be whispered rumors this monument is an Islamic symbol. Even if not true in your minds, it will become true in myth and rumor. It may get so bad it becomes a rallying point for our enemies. These are factors that must be considered.

Right now it is more true than anything else about the monument, it has Islamic symbolism in it.  And with good evidence not hysterical visions. Those who can’t figure out how navigation on a globe ends up aligning the crescent with Mecca demonstrate over and over again why this alignment is nearly impossible by accident or amateurish intent. It takes a special mathematical knowledge to realize which way is Mecca. It is not something anyone can just do on a whim and a globe.

So we will have a monument where the mythology of its Islamic hidden message will long survive – a testament to the foolishness of not changing course when first alerted to the problems. But let me also remind you of who you honor, and how you pale in comparison to them right now. This will be especially hard to hear for those family members of the victims, but you sully their sacrifice with your stubbornness.

To truly honor them, to truly experience what they did, you must take some incredibly precious to you and throw it away for the good of others and the good of this country. To even be in the same league as those you honor, you must throw this lame crescent away and start new.  Then, and only then, will you be even marginally close to them in character. They threw their lives away for this country, you can surely throw this design away.  At least you will be alive and with your family after such a ’sacrifice’.  But moreover, you will be a lot closer to those you lost and honor in the annals of humankind. Is this a monument to sacrifice or ego?

Why don’t you actually read the posts, investigate this further. You may actually find it as morally reprehensible as we do.
