The downfall of Jesse Jackson jnr,
the man who might have beaten
Obama to the White House

Telegraph [UK], by John Avlon

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/23/2013 3:54:30 PM

Political scandals generally come in two sizes: standard sleaze and buffoonish corruption. This week, Jesse Jackson jnr — the former congressman and son of the controversial civil rights leader — pleaded guilty to an array of campaign finance crimes that would have made the most hardened Chicago political mover blush. Working in cahoots with his wife, Sandi — until recently a Chicago alderman — the Jackson duo managed to enrich themselves off campaign funds with an evident weakness for luxury items ranging from a $43,000 Rolex watch to a fedora once worn by Michael Jackson. This fall from

This writer is delusional.
Jackson 1 and Jackson 2 are only good at squeezing other peoples´ money and spending it.

He´s every bit as (un)qualified as barry, with the same criminal mindset.

It is a sign of the times that people feel that the Jacksons will not serve any prison time or receive any other significant punishment. It is the way the justice system shows its concern for diversity.

This is the same Avlon who writes for the Daily Beast? He might have a bit of a point. JJJ had powerful connections who could have gotten him to a candidacy, I think, and Jackson is plenty smart. But, he doesn´t have the exotic background that Obama has. I think Obama dazzled voters. I don´t believe Jesse, Jr. could have don that. In addition, everything I have read about the Jackson family indicates that Jesse, Sr., blocked Jr. everywhere he could, maybe out of jealousy.

If anybody, ANYBODY, had give a tenth part of the scrutiny given to Jesse Junior, to Bronco Bama, the Great Imposter would not be squatting in the White Hut today. Bronco Bama is WAY dirtier than Jackson ever was, but some highly placed people have been opening doors and quieting eruptions for both Bronco and Muchelle for a long time now, and they are not about to lose their investment.

Bronco should never have won that first election to the Illinois Senate (in which all his challengers were somehow "disqualified", leaving him essentially unapposed), and for sure not the seat in the US Senate. He has, in fact, never fairly won anything in his life, wouldn´t know how. His victories have all come at the expense of his rivals for office, who were subjected to perhaps the most underhanded kinds of character assassinations and what would be actionable slanders in any other venue, with a great deal of opposition research being expended on what are really trivial matters, but blown up vastly out of proportion.

This is all much sleazier than anything the Clintons ever attempted. And Lord knows, that pair were masters at avoiding culpability in ANYTHING.

1. This sort of thing didn´t just pop up. You can be pretty confident they´ve both been crooks a long time. And -- JJ Sr. never knew anything?

2. What they spent the stolen money on is quite revealing of their "values" and "tastes," too. Yuck.

FTA: Working in cahoots with his wife, Sandi — until recently a Chicago alderman — the Jackson duo managed to enrich themselves off campaign funds with an evident weakness for luxury items....

a. Calling their loot collection "luxury items" is w-a-a-a-y-y beyond generous.
b. Linguistic question: since "chairman" must be expunged in favor of "chair" [but I think there´s some furniture that goes by that name already?], doesn´t that make Sandi an "alder"?

FTA: Despite earning a combined taxpayer-subsidised salary of more than $250,000 a year, 47-year-old Jackson jnr and his wife started dipping into campaign coffers....

Well, first, their pay isn´t "subsidized," but entirely paid by taxpayers. Then, let´s say it´s "paid," not "earned." And also let´s remember all the expenses that taxpayers are also stuck paying. And come on -- "dipping"? And why isn´t the estimated loot total mentioned?

FTA: Sandi’s political consultancy received more than $250,000 from her husband’s congressional campaigns over the past decade.

No doubt 100% above-board. No doubt.

After embracing the radical chic of the 1970s and establishing his reputation as one of the most powerful orators in the country...

Oh, pleeze. That´s just damn funny. Half the time ol´ love chile-jesse sounds like he´s got a mouth full of horse apples.

Tim Conway Jr. has a weekly feature on his KFI radio show called "What The Hell Did jesse jackson Say?" every Thursday night at 80 left coast time. Tim plays a short clip of unintelligible jesse garbage, and then people call, text and tweet their best guesses as to what he said. It´s really funny.

One of the most powerful orators in the country, indeed.

Kwami Kilpatrick, Rod Blogdovich and Ray Nagin are mentioned as being in trouble for corruption, but no identifying them as Democrats. No citing of Jesse jr or Jesse sr. or Sandi Jackson being Dems either. That´s six corrupt Dems in one article who escaped having their party identified.

Google "Jesse Jackson Spitting" and learn what a family he was brought up in. His father was a preacher but when he was going to school, he workd in a restaurant where he would SPIT in the food of white customers. This he would brag about as giving him gratification!!!

No wonder Jr turned out like he did!!!

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
