Report: Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. releases robocall, tells supporters 'I am human'
By Jonathan Easley - 10/20/12 07:07 PM ET

The Chicago Sun Times is reporting that Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) sent out an automated message to constituents in his district on Saturday, asking voters to stick by him through his recent spate of difficulties.

“Like many human beings, a series of events came together in my life at the same time and they have been difficult to sort through,” Jackson says in the call. “I am human. I am doing my best. I am trying to sort through them all.”

The Chicago Sun Times reported earlier in the day that Jackson is returning to the Mayo Clinic for treatment of bipolar depression.

That report cited an anonymous source who said the press made it impossible for Jackson to continue treatment while living at his home in Washington, D.C.

“Jesse wanted you to know he is finding it difficult to continue his treatment because the press is staking out his home and making access to his doctor, who is within a short walking distance from his home, incredibly hard,” the source said.

In June, Jackson took a leave of absence from Congress to be treated for the disorder. His office initially explained his absence as a break from stress and exhaustion, but later came forward to say the congressman actually was actually receiving treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for bipolar disorder.

“I am starting to heal,” Jackson says in the robocall. “The good news is my health is improving, but my doctors tell me the road to recovery is a long one.”

More recently, Jackson has returned to Washington, D.C., and continued receiving treatment. The lawmaker has not appeared on Capitol Hill since he returned, however, despite assurances from his office that he is running for reelection and intends to stay in Congress.

On Monday, The Wall Street Journal reported that federal investigators are conducting a criminal probe over allegations that he used campaign donations to decorate his house.

Despite his mounting troubles, most political analysts believe Jackson is a safe bet to win reelection next month in his highly Democratic district.

“For nearly 18 years I have served the people of the second district,” he continues in the robocall. “I am anxious to return to work on your behalf, but at this time it is against medical advice, and while I will always give my all to my constituents, I ask for your continued patience as I work to get my health back.”

Thinking he is human is clearly a major step forward in his treatment.

Jesse, what if the treatments take 2 more years. You gonna disenfranchise your constituents and leave them unrepresented. How about getting healthy and then run again sometime down the road.

Why is it that people who do poorly excuse themselves as being ‘only human’? Everyone on this planet is ‘only human’. Being human also includes the foresight to realize the possible consequences of your actions.

Democrats routinely re-elect candidates under criminal investigation.

Jackson, JR., blames the press for his trouble but he is failing to realize that the problem is his own fear of prison. Until he realizes the truth, even psychiatric care and re-election will not help him.

He has to open his heart, admit wrong doing, seek forgiveness, and make his "error" right before God and man.

Then the demons of "bi-polar" can stop haunting him and even disappear.

This POS is just wanting to win his seat. Most likely it’s because he knows that the corrupt Gov. of Illinois will appoint another racist and corrupt individual to take his place.

If no charges are brought, he will miraculously be cured!

Can’t lock up a mentally ill guy who didn’t understand he was trying to buy a Senate seat and decorated his house with campaign money! Meanwhile, he still wants to be reelected to the house, get a paycheck and all of the assorted benefits, and do nothing.

"Despite his mounting troubles, most political analysts believe Jackson is a safe bet to win reelection next month in his highly Democratic district."

And, never lifted a finger or spent a dime on a reelection campaign. You get the government that you deserve: an Afro-Marxist kleptocracy. The only thing missing from this farce is a spiffy uniform from a comic opera, and palace guards in chromed helmets.

How degrading that a black race-baiter should be obliged to seek treatment at the "mayo" clinic!

It would be more accurate if the robocall said “I am guilty.”.

This is just a variation of the insanity defense, writ large, and a lie so big, it is hoped the sheeple actually believe it.

Of course, the sheeple in Chicago believe ANYTHING a Demon tells them, that is why it is, although a beautiful city, the nexus of evil in America.

Jessie, Jr. is up to eyeballs in the Blago affair, and there is an indictment with his name on it.

Therefore, the Mayo defense.

One thing that bugs me about this. If he getting all this mental work done, is he mentally able to hold his office. Why doesn’t such questions come up? Seems to me that someone else needs to be appointed that is physically healthy in mind and body that can hold his office.

JJJ's wife is signing him into Mayo for a long stay---and wont sign him out til the feds lighten up. Sandi's also a little antsy.

Mrs JJJ is a (gasp) Chicago Alderman.

Some of JJJ's Health and financial problems might emanate from all his Congressional "earmarks" that ended up in Mrs JJJ's campaign coffers (/snix).

=======================================

Course, I'm just a really, really nice person. So, of course, I thought it was really, REALLY nice when Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel spoke out WRT JJJ's medical (cough) condition.

================================================

Obama's ex-COS, CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM EXPLAINS
"CHICAGO VALUES" wrt the recent Chick-Fil-a controversy......

Mayor Rahm danced into the controversy after Alderman Proco Joe Moreno (1st ward) publicly announced his opposition to Chick-Fil-A opening in his ward.

Mayor Rham chuckled while doing a graceful plie: "It's easy to do business in Chicago when you know 'the rules.' Chick-Fil-A can open in our town as long as it adopts 'Chicago Values.' "

(1) weekly cash pay off to the alderman;

(2) hire six of the alderman's friends who work only random days of the month,

(3) BIG AL from the Mayor's office picks up all cash in brown paper bags at CFA's back door,

(4) Chick Fil A staff trained to shoot 10-12 customers per month,

(5) Any CFA customers actually killed must be registered to vote as Democrats,

(6) $100,00 campaign contribution to Obama,

(7) free sandwiches and watermelon salsa to Jesse Jackson, Jr, who
is "convalescing," b/c he screwed up buying Obama's Senate seat.

=========================================

"I made Chick-Fil-A promise to serve chicken sandwiches
on a banana leaf w/ watermelon salsa, said Proco Joe Moreno.

In those circles it is a resume enhancer.

Other than this idiotic robo-call——he isn’t campaigning but JJJ’s still paying his wife Chicago Alderman Sandi Jackson-—and her political consulting firm—— $5000.00 per month the last four months.

JJJ’s “campaign” expenses since 2011 shows he’s spent $1 million, about the same as Rep. Judy Biggert, who’s spent $1.1 million and Rep. Bob Dold, who’s spent $1.6 million, in their competitive races. That’s well above the roughly $300,000 each that other Reps spent in two years.


Where is JJJ’s money going-—and where is JJJ’s coming from? This can be answered as easy as 1-2-3.

Keep in mind, the sinister Chi/Mob political gangsters are well-practiced in criminality-—and have been using these tactics for years (which is how they got criminal Obama into the WH).


MEMO TO L/E——L/E must employ Bank Secrecy Laws WRT govt bank accounts being used fraudulently.

REFERENCE Under the Bank Secrecy Act, banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity that might be indicative of govt fraud, money laundering and other financial crimes.

“The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the tax-paying public by identifying and detecting money laundering from criminal enterprises, govt fraud, tax evasion, money laudering and other unlawful activities. The investgations are monitored by the Internal Revenue Service’s Criminal Investigation unit.


COMMONLY USED PRACTICES TO FACILITATE GOVT FRAUD Falsifying govt documents incurs several felonies and might involve forgery.

To cover their tracks, govt fraudsters might have created fake invoices that falsely show that govt money was being used for legitimate purposes, perhaps forged statements to cover the transfer of govt funds into secret bank accounts.

Govt fraud can also be facilitated by bank withdrawals, purchases on bank credits and intrabank transfers from legislative accounts into personal bank accounts.

A huge tipoff is whether bank withdrawals support luxurious lifestyle including payments for real estate, investment and stock holdings, jewelry, luxury vehicles, resort travel and gifts from luxury outlets for wives, mistresses, significant others.

Large purchases of untraceable casino chips, and requests to casinos to wire transfer funds to offshore bank accounts.

L/E is directed to get ahold of M/M JJJ’s: (1) checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, contracts, loan agreements, (8) any other books or records, and (9) purchases of card cards witr large balances.

L/E should also explore govt monies M/M JJJ paid to (a) stockbrokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers.

L/E should scrutinize M/M JJJ’s bank accounts for suspicious activites: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) request for withdrawals.

Bank records might also show diversions to secret LLC and other accounts, to operate personal businesses/law firms, and the like.there are bank accounts and checking accounts (also accounts with brokerages) from which deposits and withdrawals could be made.

<><><>WRT credit cards——those are frequently used to facilitate fraud......placing large sums of money on the card ostensibly for large purchases.......that are later turned into cash.

<><><> WRT lines of credit——falsified documents listing fictitious net worth in order to get LOC.
