Holy Christ, this goes deep

Wow, that is one amazing

Wow, that is one amazing interview. I loved this about the city a mile to my south:

The other thing I noticed is how Chicago, with its culture of political corruption, is central to the new administration. When I saw that Obama’s choice of chief of staff was Rahm Emanuel, knowing his relationship with Mayor Richard Daley and with the Hastert crowd, I knew we were not going to see positive changes. Changes possibly, but changes for the worse. It was no coincidence that the Turkish criminal entity’s operation centered on Chicago.

And my congressional representative?

In 2000, another representative was added to the list, Jan Schakowsky, the Democratic congresswoman from Illinois. Turkish agents started gathering information on her, and they found out that she was bisexual. So a Turkish agent struck up a relationship with her. When Jan Schakowsky’s mother died, the Turkish woman went to the funeral, hoping to exploit her vulnerability. They later were intimate in Schakowsky’s townhouse, which had been set up with recording devices and hidden cameras.

Unbelievable (if true).

Hey, Randall and I had

Hey, Randall and I had Cynthia McKinney as our House Representative (sort of). What do we win? And did anyone roll a James Traficant? I miss that dude.

AntiWar Radio

I've been following the story on AntiWar Radio--this is a good opportunity to give Scott Horton's excellent interviews a plug.

I'll probably listen to the latest installment referring to this article on my drive home (and during my farm chores, since it's an hour long) tonight.

Sibel Edmonds Update

Scott Horton has a new interview up with Sibel Edmonds and John M. Cole.

At the end of the show, Scott plugs Sibel's new site Boiling Frogs.
