Did U.S. Attorney Fitzgerald jump the gun in premature arrest of Gov. Blagojevich?
(Dec 14, 2008)

If U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald had waited, we might have caught Gov. Blagojevich accepting $500K - $1M from "Candidate # 5" and Team Obama appointing Gov. Blagojevich as Ambassador to Lower Slobovia as a quid pro quo.  Now the question is:  did Fitzgerald blow the "criminal" case by acting too soon, lowering it to a simple "threat?"

Also, did Fitzgerald overstep his prosecutorial ethics and blow his criminal case by blabber-mouthing his personal opinions about Gov. Blagojevich on national TV?

The Bigger Question is:  did the Big Boys behind the scenes order Fitzgerald to jump the gun on purpose in order to cut all ties to -- and thus keep their new puppet, Barack Obama, in -- the Oval Office where they can easily manipulate him for all their future national and international monetary and power schemes?

Chicago, IL – Stick a clothes pin on your nose, girl friends.  Something fishy stinks in Denmark.  And also in Chicago.

   Did U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald blow the criminal case against Illlinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich by arresting him before he actually committed the crime of selling Obama's U.S. Senate seat and receiving a quid pro quo, such as appointment as U.S. Ambassador, from Team Obama?  Was Fitzgerald too eager, too stupid, or did someone higher up jerk his chain and order him into a premature ejaculation of the law?

   Think about it.  Why the big rush to arrest Gov. Blagojevich just before he was about to appoint -- to "sell" -- Obama's U.S. Senate seat?  The U.S. Attorney would have us believe that he had to "act fast" before Gov. Blagojevich did his dirty deed but that's a crock of crap.  When you set up a sting, you want to catch the crooks in the act of the crime, not cut it off.

   So why did Fitzgerald cut off the crime?  Nobody was going to be shot or anything.  Nothing was going to happen that couldn't be undone, including the appointment of Obama's Senate seat for a million bucks.  In court, such an "appointment" would be ruled illegal and thus overturned.

   Not only did Fitzgerald cut off the first half of the crime, the selling of Obama's Senate seat, he also cut off the second half of the possible crime:  Team Obama paying off Gov. Blagojevich with a high level political appointment.

   How could experienced U.S. Attorney Fitzgerald make such a stupid mistake?  Or was it really a mistake?

   Nothing logically explains why U.S. Attorney Fitzgerald jumped the gun except that he was (1) too stupid -- which I don't think Fitzgerald is -- or (2) somebody ordered him to do it for an alternative reason.  And what would that reason be:

Did the Big Boys behind the scenes order Fitzgerald to jump the gun on purpose in order to cut all ties to -- and thus keep their new puppet, Barack Obama, in -- the Oval Office where they can easily manipulate him for all their future national and international monetary and power schemes?

   The problem wasn't that Gov. Blagojevich was about to do something that couldn't be undone and Fitzgerald had to "act fast," but rather Gov. Blagojevich AND Team Obama were possibly about to do something that would show a connection between Team Obama and those who brung Obama to the Big Dance at the White House: The Dirty Chicago Political Machine.  The problem is:  that's the way the crooks behind the scenes running The White House like it:  malleable presidents like George Bush I, Bill Clinton, George Bush II, and now Barack Obama.  Presidents who know zip about basic economics and even less about the true nature of money and credit.

   It's not the White House that "manages" the nation.  It's the Federal Reserve and now the U.S. Treasury, printing up and doling out all the Pulp Fiction paper money they need for power plays in the national and international markets, whether through subprime mortgages, Wall Street bank bailouts, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac schemes, insurance company bailouts, Big Three Auto bailouts and appointing a National Socialist Car Czar, and whatever else suits their fancy.  As we stated elsewhere, Treasury Secretary Paulson did not get Congress to pass his infamous $700 Billion Bailout Booty for the money; he did it for the power to intervene into future markets in any way he wanted.  And Congress gave that power to Treasury and the Fed Reserve.

   As contributor Victoria Toensing -- a former Justice Department official, and now a lawyer in Washington -- said in a Wall Street Journal article today, "Fitzgerald Should Keep His Opinions to Himself."  Why?  He grossly overstepped prosecutorial ethics by blabber-mouthing his personal opinions about Gov. Blagojevich on national TV.

   We shouldn't be surprised.  Fitzgerald pulled a worse stunt in October 2005 when he announced the indictment of Scooter Libby for "perjury" when, in fact, there was no crime for Libby to have perjured himself about.  In that case, Richard Armitage "leaked" the information about Valerie Plame and Libby had done nothing.  One cannot perjure oneself about a non-existent crime, which of course didn’t stop Fitzgerald then either.

   So, on both counts, (1) U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald's extremely unethical opinions about Gov. Blagojevich's alleged "crime spree" on national TV, thus, giving Blagojevich’s future defense attorneys ammunition to dump the case on technical grounds, and (2) his jumping the gun to arrest Blagojevich before the main criminal action took place -- i.e., the possible exchanging of Obama's Senate seat for a quid pro quo from Team Obama -- may well have screwed up the possibility of any type of criminal conviction for crimes against not only the people of Illinois and the nation at large, but also possible crimes by The Chicago Political Machine and Team Obama at the White House.  We may never know.  And that's precisely the problem:  we may never know and The Chicago Mob may soon be running The White House.

   Time will tell, maybe.  In our opinion, U.S. Attorney Fitzgerald either screwed up royally in the Blagojevich case, or he did it on purpose at the behest of other higher ups.  You decide. -- FM Duck
