I. Introduction, and List of 16 Victims

     This article is the follow-up to my previous article "The Obama Murders (Part 1A: 124 Politically Motivated Deaths and Disappearances)", which was published on this blog on October 12th, 2012.
     It is an examination of the facts surrounding 16 cases from that list of 124. The cases were selected based on: 1) their similarities; 2) their degree of connection to one another; 3) their having occurred near the beginning of the Obama Administration; 4) reports by Michelle Malkin from 2011; 5) Larry Sinclair's public statement; and 6) a televised interview with reporter Wayne Madsen, from early 2011, in which he named somewhere between five and ten of the cases explained below.

      The purpose of this article is to determine whether, between September 2007 and November 2011, President Barack Obama and close associates in and near his administration, may have conspired to attempt to assassinate persons who may have posed a threat to Obama getting into office and staying there.
     These persons include Congresswoman Gabirlle Giffords of Arizona, as well as sixteen other American citizens who may have been deliberately murdered for various purposes (with or without collaboration by former Vice President Dick Cheney in one or two of those instances).

      The likely motivations behind their possible murders include, but are not limited to: 1) to cover up and discredit facts surrounding President Obama’s citizenship and presidential eligibility status; 2) to cover up and discredit drug allegations leveled at Obama; 3) to cover up and discredit claims of gay sex scandals involving Obama and his former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel; 4) to neutralize persons likely to cooperate with investigators in a way that would implicate Obama’s involvement in the political corruption scandal surrounding his vacated U.S. Senate seat; 5) to neutralize persons likely to reveal Obama’s connection to fraud scandals involving casino development, real estate, and other deals in Chicago (many of which involve convicted fraudster Tony Rezko); 6) to cover up a scheme to privatize, de-fund, and close schools in poor, predominantly black Chicago neighborhoods; 7) to eliminate those who would seek to prevent the federal government’s favoring of corporate energy-industry interests which promote Obama’s underhanded, duplicitous environmental policy; 8) to cover up a C.I.A. scheme to destabilize Mexico and undermine its national sovereignty by operating a weapons-for-drugs program across the U.S.-Mexico border, and to neutralize bipartisan opposition to the Obama Administration in Arizona with regards to that scheme; 9) to stifle free speech and the right to bear arms in the wake of the Tucson massacre; 10) to cover up prostitution allegations levied at Cheney and other prominent Republican politicians; and 11) to cover up an attempt by Cheney to set up a secret, alternate chain of command of nuclear missiles.

II. Background on Five Key Players



      Before I go into detail about the backgrounds of and circumstances surrounding the deaths of each of the sixteen victims in near chronological order, it shall first be necessary to provide some background on five public personae with whom viewers may not be familiar, and who will be referred to throughout the piece; namely, Wayne Madsen, Larry Sinclair, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Rahm Emanuel, and Valerie Jarrett.

      Wayne Madsen is an investigative journalist based in Washington, D.C.. His professional history includes work as a government consultant, and he has either worked for or been affiliated with RCA, the National Security Agency, the U.S. Navy’s Naval Data Automation Command, the National Bureau of Standards, the U.S. Department of State, the Computer Sciences Corporation, and the Electronic Privacy Information Center. He now runs the website WayneMadsenReport.com.
      A contributor to the Alex Jones Show and RussiaToday, Madsen wrote the three-part article “The Story of Obama: All in the Family”, in which he claimed that both of Obama’s parents – as well as both of his maternal grandparents and his stepfather – have ties to the C.I.A.’s financing of political coups in the Eastern Hemisphere. Throughout numerous reports and interviews, Madsen has made mention of about half of the fifteen victims whom this article concerns.

      Larry Sinclair is a felon convicted of fraud and other crimes, and the author of “Barack Obama and Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies and Murder?”. He claims that in 1999 – when Obama was an Illinois State Senator – Sinclair and Obama had gay fellatio and used cocaine and alcohol together in Sinclair’s rented limousine in Chicago, and also in Sinclair’s hotel room in Gurnee, Illinois the following day. Sinclair’s attorney – Montgomery Blair Sibley – was present at Sinclair’s June 2008 press conference in Washington, D.C., where he discussed his allegations, and was asked a question by reporter Wayne Madsen.
      Sinclair failed two lie detector tests regarding his claims, amidst suggestions that the tests were improperly administered due to Sinclair’s circulation disorders (caused by a nerve injury resulting from his having worked for a moving company); that lie detector tests are not reliable; that – despite the failings of such tests – Sinclair’s answers to the important questions surrounding his relationship with Obama still passed the tests; and that Daniel Parisi – who once owned the porn site WhiteHouse.com, and paid Sinclair $10,000 to take the tests – conspired with political consultant and former Senior Obama Advisor David Axelrod to rig the results in order to cover for Obama, and so that Parisi would not have to pay Sinclair an additional $100,000 for passing the tests.

      The Reverend Jeremiah Wright is the former pastor at Chicago’s six-thousand-member Trinity United Church of Christ. For 36 years – before retiring in 2008, the year Obama was elected president – he played a role in cementing ties between the Christians and Muslims in Chicago’s black community. Wright promoted Reverend James Hal Cone’s black liberation theology, which has roots in the left wing and the civil rights movements of the 1960s, and which sees God as concerned with the poor and the weak.
      President Obama has attended Trinity United on-and-off since the late 1980s, but he denies having heard the particular sermons in which Reverend Wright said “God damn America for killing innocent people” and described the events of September 11th as “America’s chickens coming home to roost”.

      Rahm Emanuel has served a Senior Adviser to President Bill Clinton, and as a U.S. Congressman representing northern suburbs of Chicago. He served in several posts pertaining to federal Democratic political strategizing before becoming Obama’s Chief of Staff in 2009.
      Emanuel succeeded Richard J. Daley to become the mayor of Chicago, following a contentious process to determine Emanuel’s eligibility to run for that position, in the face of questions surrounding whether he maintained a residency in the city.

      Valerie Jarrett is one of President Obama’s two Senior Advisors, as well as an assistant to Obama for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs. She previously served as an aide to Chicago Mayor Harold Washington, and later as Deputy Chief of Staff to Mayor Richard J. Daley. She has held many positions in the Chicago city government.
      In 1991, Jarrett hired Michelle Robinson as the lead attorney for Mayor Daley. Soon after, Robinson married Barack Obama, and later became the Vice President for Community and External Affairs at the University of Chicago Medical Center, of which Valerie Jarrett is currently the Chairman of the Board of Trustees.
      When Barack Obama was elected president, the office of the junior Senator from Illinois was left open, and then-Governor Rod Blagojevich had the power to appoint his replacement. About this opportunity, Blagojevich remarked, “I’ve got this thing and it’s fucking golden… I’m just not giving it up for fuckin’ nothing.”

      In April 2010, lawyers for Blagojevich filed a motion to subpoena Obama to testify at Blagojevich’s corruption trial about whether he sent “emissaries” to Blagojevich to inform him of Obama’s preferences about who should fill the Senate seat. Although former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris ultimately received the appointment, it has been alleged that Obama desired that Blagojevich’s choice be Valerie Jarrett.















III. Explanation of 16 Victims' Cases



      Now that we’ve become acquainted with these lesser-known figures who will be mentioned throughout this piece, we’ll move on to discussing the deaths of the second, third, and fourth victims; Larry Bland, Donald Young, and Nate Spencer.
      Each of these men were openly gay black male Chicago residents who died within forty days of one another in November and December 2008, the last of whom died just eight days prior to Obama’s victory in the Iowa Caucus on January 3rd, 2008.
      The first two of these three victims – Larry Bland and Donald Young – were both members of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ, and both were shot execution-style in the back of the head.
     For the sake of relevance, we will skip the first victim for now, and instead look at victims two through four.













      Our second victim Larry Bland worked as a security guard at Northwestern Hospital in Evanston, Illinois. On November 17th, 2008, he was found shot to death in the entryway of the home which he had once shared with his mother Josephine.
      Josephine Bland told a Fox affiliate in Chicago that she had been concerned about the telephone bills her son was running up calling gay sex lines, the amount of time he spent on gay sex sites (including adam4adam.com), and the frequency with which he brought strange young men over to their house. Bland’s mother said that these circumstances led to her moving out of the home which she had shared with her son, who she believes was killed by one of his lovers.



      Two days before that Christmas, Larry Bland’s fellow Trinity United churchgoer – our third victim, Donald Young – was found shot to death in his Chicago apartment. Numerous items were discovered missing from the scene of the crime, leading investigators to believe that Young was murdered by burglars. Young was not only a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ; he was also its choir director, as well as an elementary school teacher.
       In his June 2008 press conference in Washington, D.C. – and in a sworn affidavit he filed with the Chicago Police Department – Larry Sinclair claimed that between September and November 2007, he contacted a representative of Trinity United, and later discovered – only after his death – that this man was in fact Donald Young.
      The purpose of Sinclair’s various calls and text messages was to urge Young to have Reverend Jeremiah Wright ask Obama to amend his publicly-disclosed records of drug use to include the crack-smoking incident – which allegedly involved Obama purchasing an eight-ball of cocaine with $250 of Sinclair’s money on his behalf, the two drinking alcohol together, and Obama pulling a pipe and a crack rock out of his pocket and smoking it while Sinclair performed fellatio on him – which Sinclair claims occurred in 1999.
      As a bit of background, Obama has publicly admitted – numerous times – that he smoked marijuana, and wrote in his 1995 autobiography Dreams From My Father that he had snorted cocaine, and once almost had an acquaintance inject him with heroin.
      Larry Sinclair alleges that during one of the instances in which Young called Sinclair, Young asked why Sinclair had not asked him to urge Obama and Reverend Wright to disclose information regarding a sexual relationship.
      Sinclair later claimed that his question surprised him, because he had never mentioned his sexual relationship with Obama in his conversations with Young. This would seem to indicate that Obama had admitted to having had such a relationship with Sinclair in private talks with Reverend Wright and Donald Young when Young confronted Wright and Obama about Sinclair’s call about Obama’s drug use.
      Reporter Wayne Madsen has claimed that Reverend Wright ran a gay matchmaking service called the “Down-Low Club” for members of Trinity United, who were typically married men.
      Madsen said the abbreviation of the service – D.L.C. – served as a cover, such that anyone overhearing Wright’s conversations would think he was discussing the Democratic Leadership Committee, a non-profit think tank (affiliated with “New Democrats” Obama, the Clintons, John Kerry, John Edwards, Joe Lieberman, and Al Gore) which dissolved in early 2011.
      The well-publicized murders of Larry Bland and Donald Young led some Chicago residents to wonder whether there was a serial killer on the loose targeting homosexual African-Americans.
      Larry Sinclair has alleged that Reverend Wright announced the death of Donald Young at either the 7:30 A.M. or the 11:00 A.M. Trinity United service. This is interesting because – according to the certified copy of Young’s Chicago Death Certificate – Young was found shot at 7:30 A.M., but was not officially pronounced dead by the Medical Examiner until 12:10 P.M..
      Donald Young’s mother Norma Jean told the tabloid The Globe that she believes that persons trying to protect Obama’s reputation had her son murdered.



      The day after Christmas 2007 – just three days after the murder of Donald Young – our fourth victim Nate Spencer was found dead in his home. Spencer’s cause of death was given as septicemia, pneumonia, and complications related to HIV.
      Spencer’s fellow gay black male Chicago resident Tim Hooker runs the blog chgocutie.blogspot.com. On the blog, Hooker has reported the death of Donald Young, as well as the death of Nate Spencer, who he claims had once been his lover. Hooker has amended these posts to chide readers who have posted comments asking Hooker whether he believes there is a link between Obama and the deaths of Spencer and Young.
      Let us now move from Chicago to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C..



      On April 17th, 2008, our sixth victim Leiutenant Quarles Harris, Jr. – Leiutenant being simply the man’s first name rather than a military rank – was found in his car, dead from multiple gunshot wounds. At the time of his death, Harris was cooperating with federal officials concerning his March 25th arrest for being in possession of large quantities of marijuana, 20 or 21 credit cards, and eight completed passport applications, four of the names on which matched names on the credit cards.
      Harris had been in court for that fraud case only three days before he was murdered. According to court documents, Harris told police that he had conspired with employees of the State Department and the Postal Service to commit credit card fraud.
      It has been reported that in March 2008 – the month Harris was arrested – the passport records of major presidential candidates Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John McCain had been breached by three State Department contract employees.
      Despite claims by then Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs Sean McCormack that the cases are not related, Harris’s claim that his friend in the State Department had helped him commit the credit card fraud prompts questions as to whether the Harris case has anything to do with these incidents.
      At least one of these breaches of the presidential candidates’ personal records allegedly took place during a training exercise, in which the employee was asked to show he had learned how to access a person’s files, and in which the employee was urged not to pull up the name of a famous person. That employee allegedly pulled up one of the candidates’ names. Two of these employees were fired, and one was merely reprimanded.
      The employees worked for Virginia-based State Department personal records contractors Stanley Inc. and The Analysis Corporation. The Analysis Corporation – whose CEO John O. Brennan is President Obama’s Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism – also deals with information concerning counterterrorism and national security, working with the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Defense Intelligence Agency.
      We may remember John O. Brennan from May 2011, when he gave public statements concerning the details of the raid on the compound of Osama bin Laden which allegedly caused his death; statements which arguably conflicted with statements made by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.
      Being that the passport information of Obama, Clinton, and McCain was breached, it is necessary to mention that the breach of this information carries with it the potential that Social Security information was also accessed and viewed, which could be used to find credit card information.
      Reporter Wayne Madsen has claimed that Obama has a false Social Security number issued from Connecticut, where the President never lived. If Madsen’s claim is true, then a person viewing Obama’s social security number would be privy to some very controversial information which could lead to questions about the President’s status as a natural-born citizen, and therefore his eligibility for the presidency. This is keeping in mind that when Harris died, Obama had not yet secured the Democratic nomination.
      With four of our seven total black male victims – three of whom were shot to death – and three of our eight total victims with ties to Chicago out of the way, we can now turn towards Tarpon Springs, Florida.



      There, our seventh victim Deborah Jeane Palfrey was found hanging from a beam in a shed attached to her mother Blanche’s mobile home on May 1st, 2008, some two weeks after she was found guilty of money laundering, racketeering, and using the mail for illegal purposes, and two months before she was scheduled to be sentenced. For these convictions, Palfrey faced up to 55 years behind bars, and was likely to serve between five and eight years.
      Palfrey was known as the “D.C. Madam”, having operated and founded the California-based high-price illegal escort service Debora Martin and Associates, which served clients in Maryland and the nation’s capital. Palfrey had stated that she had had as many as fifteen thousand clients.
      From 1992 to 1993, prior to founding the escort service, Palfrey – who had received a degree in criminal justice and worked as a paralegal – spent a year and a half in jail for pimping, pandering, and extortion. In 2006, Palfrey ran afoul of the law again; her bank accounts were frozen, and her documents were seized during a raid by the I.R.S..
      The following year, Palfrey appeared on ABC’s “20/20” as part of an investigative report. ABC went through nearly fifty pounds of phone records, but decided that none of the clients were high-profile enough to merit being mentioned in the report, despite the subsequent claims of reporter Wayne Madsen, who believes that Palfrey’s clientele included 2008 Republican presidential candidates Fred Thompson, Rudy Giuliani, and John McCain, and then Vice President Dick Cheney.
      Despite this decision by ABC, the scandal led to the admission by Republican U.S. Senator David Vitter of Louisiana and USAID Administrator Randall L. Tobias (who resigned as a result of this admission) of having used Palfrey’s services.
      Military strategist Harlan Ullman and Vice President Cheney were named as Palfrey’s clients by her civil attorney Montgomery Blair Sibley, who also defended Obama accuser Larry Sinclair, has filed a lawsuit regarding Obama’s citizenship status, and announced in early January 2012 that he is running for president.
      Palfrey’s official cause of death was given by police and the coroner’s office as suicide by hanging.
      Reports abound which claim Palfrey had previously considered suicide. When she went to prison in the early 1990s, Palfrey allegedly told a judge that she had considered starving herself to death while incarcerated.
      In early 2007, when University of Maryland professor Brandy Britton – who had been brought up on prostitution charges, and faced six months in jail – committed suicide, Palfrey said that she was “made out of something that Brandy Britton wasn’t made of”.
      After Palfrey’s death, Washington, D.C. writer Dan Moldea – who either was considering writing a book with Palfrey, or was actually in the process of doing so – claimed she told him in 2007 that she would rather commit suicide than go back to prison, and find herself alone and penniless in her late fifties when released. Palfrey had also told ABC that she would never go back to prison.
      According to police, a suicide note written by Palfrey was found addressed to her sister. The outside of the note read, “[d]o not resuscitate (DNR), do not feed under any circumstances”, and the contents of the note read in part, “I cannot live the next 6 to 8 years behind bars for what you and I have both come to regard as this 'modern-day lynching' only to come out of prison in my late 50s a broken, penniless and very much alone woman” and “[y]ou must comprehend there was no way out, i.e., 'exit strategy,' for me other than the one I have chosen here”. Police stated that Palfrey’s mother and sister confirmed Deborah Jeane’s authorship of the note.
      These claims about Palfrey’s consideration of suicide conflict with statements made by Palfrey herself. Prior to her death, Palfrey had contact with syndicated Texas radio show host Alex Jones, and stated on Jones’s radio show that, “No, I’m not planning to commit suicide; I’m planning on going into court on April 7th and I plan on exposing the government in ways that… I do not think they want me to expose them.” She even went as far as to indicate that Dick Cheney was one of her clients, and to threaten to name names.
      Palfrey also told Jones on-air that she believed that authorities would kill her and make it look like suicide, that she was not suicidal, and that if found dead, the cause would be murder. In August 1991 – before going to prison – she wrote to the judge that the San Diego police vice squad had a vendetta against her, saying, “If taken into custody, my physical safety and most probably my very life would be jeopardized… [r]ape, beating, maiming, disfigurement and more than likely murder disguised in the form of just another jailhouse accident or suicide would await me…”.
      After Palfrey’s death, Jones stated that “there is no doubt in my mind that she was murdered”, and claimed that it would be obvious to anyone – even people who are not experts on the analysis of signatures – that the letters addressed to her sister (which some have claimed were written weeks before her death) were not even in Palfrey’s handwriting.
      According to Jones, the owner of Blanche Palfrey’s condo told NBC that Deborah Jeane Palfrey told her mother two days before she died that she believed that she was being followed, there was a hit out on her, and that she had no plans to kill herself. Palfrey’s mother claimed that Palfrey was happy at the prospect of fighting the government on her charges.
      The statements by Deborah Jeane Palfrey, Blanche Palfrey’s landlord, and Alex Jones would seem to indicate that Palfrey’s statement that she would rather die than go back to prison may have been merely hyperbole.
      Given the fact that Palfrey’s attorney claimed Cheney and other prominent Republicans as her clients, that her prosecution and death occurred during the Bush Administration, and that Obama – according to claims by Larry Sinclair and Wayne Madsen – seems more inclined to seek sexual relationships with men rather than women, it would seem that Cheney appears to have a more direct incentive to silence Palfrey, and therefore that Obama is not likely to have had a role in her death.
      Now that we have examined the deaths of the three black gay male Chicago residents in late 2007 – as well as the deaths of the black male admitted identity thief in Washington, D.C. and of the D.C. Madam in Florida which occurred the following spring – we must now delve into the corrupt world of the politics of Chicago and Cook County (President Obama’s home turf) as we look into the deaths of Orlando Jones; John Stroger; Christopher Kelly; Michael Scott, Jr.; and Phil Pagano.



      On September 12th, 2007, the body of Orlando Jones – the first chronological death of the sixteen victims mentioned in this article – was found with a gunshot wound to the head near Gowdy Shores, an upscale residential community in Union Pier, Michigan (75 miles east of Chicago) where Jones owned a vacation home.
      Less than a week before Jones died, a CBS affiliate in Chicago reported that “a corruption inquiry targeting him was heating up”. The day before his death, Jones met with Robert Stephenson – his friend and legal advisor – to discuss the allegations against him, to review documents that would refute those allegations, and to discuss Jones’s plans to set up his own investment advising firm.
      After the meeting, Jones made a few cell phone calls, but he never returned home, and his family reported him missing the following afternoon, before his body was found hours later. Despite Stephenson’s having said that Jones did not appear distraught or suicidal when they met the day before his death, Barrien County, Michigan police described the death as an apparent suicide.
      After Jones’s death, Stephenson remarked that he was “shocked”, saying “[i]t’s scary that somebody so well-balanced could just do such a thing. He obviously had demons that I didn't know about”, and “[i]f I had had any indication that he was [suicidal], I would have tried to intervene”.
      Before leaving for Union Pier, Jones evidently left a suicide note in his Chicago home. In the note – which has not been made public and has been reviewed by police in both Chicago and Las Vegas – Jones mentioned his wife, his friendship with Lacy Thomas, and – according to the Chicago Tribune – “outlined how [he] wanted his affairs to be handled after his death”.
      Prior to his death, Las Vegas police handed-in a 60-page report to the district attorney, in which they recommended that Jones, Lacy L. Thomas, Martello Pollock, and Kathy Suey (the Deputy Chief of the Homeland Security Division of the Las Vegas police, which includes the Criminal Intelligence Section that conducted the investigation) be charged with misconduct by a public official, bribery, fraud, and theft. District Attorney David Roger said that a decision would not be made for several weeks, which means that Orlando Jones died before charges could be filed.
      Jones was the godson and longtime family friend, the chief of staff, and the political advisor of John Stroger, our next discussed victim, and the president of the Cook County, Illinois Board of Commissioners. During Stroger’s tenure as president, the Cook County Hospital was renamed in his honor, becoming the John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County.
      From 1993 to 2003, Lacy Thomas served as the head of Stroger Hospital. In 1999, Martello Pollock founded the Chicago-based telecom company Crystal Communications Telephone Corporation. Pollock owned the company with Jones, who worked as Crystal’s corporate officer.
      Shortly after Thomas was hired at the Clark County-owned University Medical Center (UMC) in Las VegasNevada’s only public hospital – in November 2003, Crystal received a $24,000 consulting contract for the hospital’s telecom project. Soon after, Crystal was set to receive a $150,000 no-bid contract, and – despite the county Finance Director’s demand for open bidding – Crystal won a $132,000 contract for the project, despite being underbid by $36,000 by a Nevada telecom company.
      UMC officials told detectives that Crystal did little to no work; the county’s Chief Deputy District Attorney later said that one contractor was paid nearly a million dollars, but only produced a half-hour computer presentation of information which was already available to the public.
      Lacy Thomas’s tenure at the UMC lasted until one day in January 2006, when he was fired by the Clark County Manager, and detectives raided the hospital’s offices, seizing computers and boxes of files. In the four years that followed, Thomas was investigated, charged, and prosecuted for concealing nearly 45% of the cash-strapped UMC’s $34 million in losses.
      Las Vegas police alleged that Thomas received kickbacks for steering Crystal’s contract with the UMC towards his friends in Chicago. Investigators discovered that Orlando Jones paid for Thomas and his wife Henrene to take a trip to Aruba in March 2005, and Family Guidance Centers – a behavioral health care company for which Jones lobbied – deposited $14,000 into a bank account for the Henrene Thomas Limited Liability Company.
      While it is quite probable that the death of Orlando Jones was indeed a suicide, and while it is almost certain that President Obama – let alone former Vice President Cheney – had anything to do with his death, a discussion of Orlando Jones provides excellent opportunities to get acquainted with the rampant corruption one will find when looking into Chicago politics, to gain familiarity with the tendency of that Chicago corruption to migrate to elsewhere in the country (in this case, to Nevada), and to introduce our next discussed victim – and fifth chronological victim – John Stroger.



      John H. Stroger, Jr. died on the morning of January 18th, 2008 of complications from a stroke which he had suffered in March 2006, a week prior to the Democratic primary for the reportedly “controversial” 2006 election of the President of the Cook County Board of Commissioners.
      In this election, Stroger faced a challenge by Commissioner Forrest Claypool, who accused Stroger of presiding over a “bloated” government, at a time when Stroger’s critics described his administration as ridden with scandals and patronage.
      Stroger never recovered from the stroke, did not appear in public between the stroke and his death, and resigned three months prior to the election. He was replaced on the ticket by his son Todd, who (with the backing of Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley) won the election – beating Republican Tony Peraica – serving what would have been his father’s fourth four-year term as Board President.
      Due to John Stroger’s advanced age of 78, and his extensive health problems – he had battled diabetes; prostate cancer; heart problems; and paralysis, seizures, and neurological complications arising from the stroke he suffered in 2006 – he was almost certainly not murdered. But his connections to Chicago politics invite a closer look into his career, as well as his personal and professional relationships.
      Stroger worked and served as an assistant auditor with the Municipal Court of Chicago, as the personnel director for the Cook County Jail, for the financial director of the State of Illinois, and as the 8th Ward Committeeman of Chicago, and eventually chaired each major committee of the County Board.
      Stroger also served as president of the National Association of Counties, and was appointed by President Bill Clinton as a member of the Advisory Committee on Intergovernmental Relations. Before he died, Stroger cast an absentee ballot for Barack Obama in the Illinois Democratic Presidential Primary.
      After Stroger’s death, Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley called him “one of the most dedicated public servants of our time”, saying “[d]uring a fifty-year career in government, he left a mark on Chicago and Cook County that will be equaled by very few others”.
      Given Daley’s praise of John and Todd Stroger through the elder Stroger’s scandals – as well as John Stroger’s support of Obama, and Daley’s brother William’s having later served as Obama’s Chief of Staff – it would come as no surprise that there have been reports of corruption connecting these individuals.
      While Stroger began his 2006 run for re-election for President of the Cook County Board of Commissioners in 2005, he selected Tony Rezko – who had also headed the finance committee for Stroger’s 2002 campaign – as an honorary chair and head of his campaign finance committee.
      Reports of this selection came just one year after Rezko served on the finance committee of Barack Obama’s campaign for U.S. Senator from Illinois – making contributions which allegedly violated campaign finance laws – and at a time during which reports implicating Rezko’s involvement in various scandals began to surface in the media.
      It has been claimed that Stroger received more money in campaign contributions directly from Rezko than did Rod Blagojevich, Richard Daley, and Barack Obama. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Rezko contributed nearly $150,000 to Stroger’s campaigns.
      But this campaign finance allegation is not the only instance of possible corruption involving Stroger, the Rezko family, and Obama; Stroger also appointed Rita Rezko to a part-time position in the Cook County Employee Appeals Board, for which she earned a salary of $37,000 a year. According to court documents, this was her sole income when she secured a half-million-dollar mortgage to buy a $625,000 lot next to a parcel of land owned by Obama.
      Rita Rezko later made $50,000 selling part of this parcel to attorney Michael Sreenan, who put the lot up for sale for $1.5 million in October 2007, and contributed $5,000 to Obama’s campaigns.
      Additionally, a company affiliated with Tony Rezko and his wife Rita had a contract to maintain pay telephones at the Cook County Jail while Stroger served as Board President.
      But the relationships between Rezko, the Obamas, and real estate scandals do not end here; they in fact extend to our next two victims – two more with ties to Chicago government – Christopher Kelly and Michael Scott, Jr..



      Christopher Kelly died on September 12th, 2009 at the hospital which was re-named in honor of our last victim; the John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. Kelly’s estranged wife told police that she received text messages from him saying he had tried to kill himself. She found Kelly inside his car in the parking lot of a lumber yard in County Club Hills, Illinois – a southwest suburb of Chicago – and drove him to a hospital in nearby Oak Forest.
      At Oak Forest Hospital, Chris Kelly became lucid enough to speak to police, but his condition later deteriorated, and he was sent to Stroger Hospital, twenty-five miles away in Chicago. Despite Kelly’s condition having deteriorated, Oak Forest Hospital spokesman Michael Bright stated that Kelly was stabilized before being transported. We can only guess what Kelly told police before his condition worsened.
      Kelly’s death was attributed to salicylate intoxication arising from an overdose of aspirin, and investigators considered the possibility that his death was a murder as well as a suicide.
      Kelly had been indicted three times between 2007 and 2009; the first involved tax fraud; the second, mail fraud involving contract-bid-rigging by his company BCI Commercial Roofing Inc. for an $8.5 million project to do roofing work on hangars at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport; and the third involved racketeering and extortion charges in a kickback scheme with Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.
      In the first case, Kelly was indicted for tax fraud in April 2009. He pleaded guilty, admitting to hiding $1.3 million in personal and corporate income from the I.R.S. over the course of five years, and to improperly converting the corporate funds of BCI Roofing to pay some of the millions of dollars in gambling debts which he had incurred in Las Vegas. Kelly also used corporate funds to pay off a loan from real estate developer and political fundraiser Tony Rezko. Kelly was sentenced that June to three years in prison.
      In the second case – the mail-fraud bid-rigging scheme between BCI Roofing and O’Hare – Kelly was prepared to go to trial – which would have occurred the day after he died – but he came up with a compromise to turn himself in when the government moved to revoke his bond. Kelly would have reported for incarceration just six days after his death, and he would have served nearly five years in prison.
      At the request of prosecutors, the judge granted a motion to dismiss the charges against Kelly; this occurred two weeks after his death. Because he wasn’t sentenced while he was still living, Kelly’s guilty plea was wiped clean, and his agreement to turn over $450,000 in cash and home equity to the government was voided. Charges against BCI were also dropped; its attorney Tom Leinenweber said that the “assets of the company will be used for [Kelly’s] wife and children”.
      In the third case, Alonzo “Lon” Monk – Blagojevich’s former chief of staff – testified that in 2003, Monk, Rod Blagojevich, Tony Rezko, and Christopher Kelly plotted with an insider in investment firm Bear Stearns to let the four men split between them $2 million in funds which were illegally procured in a deal by the State of Illinois to permit Bear Stearns to sell $10 billion in pension-obligation bonds (we may remember Bear Stearns from its mid-2007 collapse, which played a significant role in triggering the sub-prime mortgage crisis that caused the [arguably] current recession).
      Facing “an extraordinary amount of pressure by federal prosecutors to cooperate” in court, Kelly pleaded not guilty to the racketeering and extortion charges in this case. Had Kelly survived long enough to be sentenced for his involvement in this kickback scandal, he would have faced up to 13 years in prison, in addition to the combined eight years stemming from the two previous cases in which Kelly pleaded guilty. The trial of Blagojevich and Kelly – who has been described as a friend and adviser to Blagojevich – was scheduled to take place in June 2010.
      As an aside, Blagojevich’s first trial ended in August 2010, over a year before he was sentenced to 14 years in prison, 11 or 12 of which he will actually serve. He was arrested and indicted in the spring of 2009 on federal corruption charges, which included conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and solicitation of bribery for his role in the scandal concerning Obama’s vacated U.S. Senate seat.
      Blagojevich hired Kelly as a fundraiser to oversee Illinois’s deal-making with a casino developer who allegedly had mob ties. Eric Holder – who now serves as Obama’s Attorney General – assisted Blagojevich in a battle to help the casino get its license in 2004, and Holder’s law firm later made $300,000 investigating the matter.
      What’s more, Tony Rezko was reported as having “held an option to lease a hotel site next to the proposed casino site”. In late November 2011, Rezko was sentenced to 10 ½ years in federal prison for his conviction of sixteen counts of fraud and corruption relating to a multimillion-dollar extortion scheme to use his influence with Blagojevich to demand kickbacks from businesses with state contracts.
      Being that the outcome of these three cases would have been that Christopher Kelly would be incarcerated from the age of 51 until the age of 72, it is certainly likely that he may have sought suicide as a way to avoid prison. But the fervent belief of Kelly and his attorney Sam Adam Jr. in Governor Blagojevich’s innocence would seem to suggest that – having another person to defend him – Blagojevich may not have been as likely to bear the entire brunt of punishment for crimes which were committed by his associates – Barack Obama included.



      Before considering the possible motivations behind the death of Christopher Kelly, we must examine a related death, that of Michael Scott, our fourth and final victim who shared Obama’s status as a black male living in Chicago.

      In November 2009, Scott’s body was found shot in the head near the banks of the Chicago River on Chicago’s Near West Side. Michael Scott had been a real estate developer, and a member of the team which bid for the 2016 Olympics on Chicago’s behalf. Viewers may remember Barack and Michelle Obama traveling to Copenhagen in late 2009 to secure the bid for Chicago, which eventually lost out to Rio de Janeiro.



      More details about the death of Michael Scott - and explanations of the deaths of Michael Scott Jr., Phil Pagano, Christopher Smith, Jack Wheeler, John Roll, Gabriel, Zimmerman, Ashley, Turton, and Tracy Lawrence - will be available on this page at a later date.

Why "Rent is Theft": Against Economic Rents and Monopolies


     The reason why the Libertarian Socialist Caucus (LibSoc Caucus) of the Libertarian Party says "rent is theft", is because this is to say that "keeping economic rents is theft". Rent on housing, and other forms of economic rent, are being extorted from us.
     It's unjust to keep something you didn't earn. That includes wealth which is derived from the profits that you earn off of a monopoly status which you own, which you or your business would not wield without government protection of that status and property, to the exclusion of all others who would claim any such right.
     From profiting off of government protection of something you own, the government absolves you of any and all responsibility to play any part in protecting that property from challenge, and from adverse use, occupancy, and possession (which could lead to better or more efficient use, or use at all in case the relevant property is unused or abandoned).
     Kept wages turned into profits (that is, superprofits) are the excess return from a monopoly on the ownership of labor. Usury (that is, excess interest) is the excess return from a monopoly on the issuance of money, credit, and capital. Rent on land and housing in particular, is the excess return from a monopoly on landed property (and from the resulting oligopoly on the housing which rests upon that land).
     That is why the Libertarian Socialist Caucus of the LP says "rent is theft". Because rent - in each and every one of the word's senses, and in all its fullest meanings - is theft, and extortion. We are coerced into “choosing” rental over ownership – of our cars, our homes, and the land beneath them – because we are legally deprived (in nearly all states) of the opportunity to fully own those things in the first place.
     That we "choose" to rent our residences rather than own homes - and that we "choose" to sell our labor to capitalists instead of own our own means of production - are not merely “semi-voluntary choices”; they are constrained choices which result from the deprivation of the additional choice to fully own. Because large firms hold legal monopolies, against which it is illegal to compete, the deprivation of the opportunity to compete against these firms, without being in violation of the law, is, plain and simple, legalized theft.
     This is theft; in the same way in which our tax money is stolen from us through taxation before we ever get a chance to actually hold it in our hands when we cash our paychecks. Thanks to taxation and the legal deprivation of the opportunity to realistically compete on the market, it is now entirely possible to steal something from somebody, which they never physically possessed in the first place. For the same reason that Right-Libertarians say "taxation is theft", Left-Libertarians now say "rent is theft" (and property is too; that is, if it is protected by the state).
     We can scarcely blame the poor for not being rich and creating jobs, nor for not sharing enough of the tax burden as compared to the rich. Through these many monopolies and oligopolies, the poor are literally legally deprived of the opportunity to become competitors in the market. They don't make enough money to need to be taxed in the first place, but the rich insist that the poor pay more in taxes nonetheless.
     Free exchange, voluntary competition, and voluntary cooperation, cannot be achieved, unless and until all business subsidies, economic rents, and monopolies are abolished, and with them, rent-seeking behaviors.
     You can learn more about these topics by researching “rentier capitalism” and rent-seeking; Karl Marx's term “superprofit”; and the definitions of land, labor, and capital - and, most importantly, the full economic definition of rent - as understood by students of classical economics (in particular, the Marginalists, Physiocrats, Georgists, Mutualists, and Lockeans).

Eighty-Four Religious Texts Not Included in the King James Version of the Bible

     I have compiled this list of antilegomena, Apocrypha and pseudepigrapha, so as to include:

     1) texts which were omitted from the King James Bible (i.e., the "normal books" of the Bible, or homologoumena, or anagignoskomena),
     2) texts which pertain to hermetic Christian and Jewish religious tradition but were never considered for inclusion in that Bible,
     3) other hermetic texts which could, just as well, have been included in the Bible, if the texts in #2 had been included, and
     4) books which are accepted as parts of the Bible by certain sects of Christianity, but not by others.

     The term pseudepigrapha refers to texts which are not formally considered to be considered part of accepted scripture; and/or to texts, the genuineness of whose origin, is doubtful. The term Apocrypha refers to probably falsely attributed texts composed by Christian patriarchs around the year 200 C.E.. The Roman Catholic Church calls the Apocrypha "Deuterocanonical Books".

     Due to my limited knowledge on this subject, I cannot include any more information than I include below. If I knew more, I would at least make a note as to whether these texts exist in the first place. Some do, and some don't; while (I would suspect) others exist in part, and there are disputes about others.
     I have organized this list as close to chronological order as I am aware. I'm positive that it's not correct, because I have not looked at any specific information estimating how long ago these texts originated.

     What follows is a list of hermetic Jewish and Christian texts, which would have been in the Old and New Testaments had they been included in the Bible. I have also included a short list of books which are likely to have much more information on these subjects.
     If I accidentally included a text that is in the K.J.V., then (at least I hope) it is probably a text that is still worth inclusion here, because it is not in all Bibles (and is accepted as part of the Bible by some Christian traditions or sects, but not by others).
     I would like to have included texts from Islam, and from non-Abrahamic religions and traditions (as well as texts regarding the Babylonian Talmud and Jerusalem Talmud), but those topics will have to lie beyond the scope of this article.

     You can find out more about hermetic religious topics by visiting the following link:

     Please feel free to comment below, or email me at jwkopsick@gmail.com, if you have any comments or questions on these subjects; or any suggestions as to how to correct the chronological order of the texts. I would appreciate it if readers would share any links to reliable information about the origin of scriptural texts, whether included in the K.J.V. (King James Version) or not.
