Remember the name Lon Monk. When Rod Blagojevich was Governor of Illinois, Monk was his Chief of Staff. Monk was to Blago as what Rahm Emanuel is to Barack Obama. Monk was the first witness to testify in Blago's trial last week. Monk testified that he was in meetings with Blago, Chris Kelly (deceased), and Tony Rezko (convicted felon) in 2003 and that some untoward things were discussed.

Via the Chicago Tribune:
Monk said that in May or June of 2003, shortly before Blagojevich’s first big fundraising event as governor, he and the governor sat down with key fundraisers Chris Kelly and Antoin “Tony” Rezko to talk about appointments to several open positions at state boards and commissions.

Monk recalled that Rezko told the group that “some of these board spots were high profile enough that at a minimum some of these people should be donating $25,000.”
That information was revealed before cross-examination. Blago's attorney, Sam Adam, Jr. grilled Monk on specifics of the meetings with two of Blago's biggest fundraisers - Kelly and Rezko.

Via the Tribune:
One key point of contention was Monk’s inability to remember many specifics of meetings he said he had with Blagojevich and fundraisers Chris Kelly and Antoin “Tony” Rezko to discuss eight or nine ideas to make money off Blagojevich’s actions as governor.

Adam asked Monk to outline the first deal that he said had been written on an easel by Rezko.

“I can’t remember,” Monk said.

“You said there was a figure written next to it. Tell us the figure?” Adam asked.

“I can’t,” Monk said.
Chris Kelly was Blago's biggest fundraiser; he committed suicide in September of 2009. Rezko was also a very significant fundraiser for the then-Governor. Perhaps more important to Americans in general, Rezko was a close friend of Barack Obama and was involved in a very suspicious real estate deal in 2005, with the current president.

Don't look now but Comedy Central's Jon Stewart might just becoming the man to go to when attempting to determine how far out on the fringe the Democrats are when they have to defend the indefensible. The latest example involves none other than South Carolina Democratic nominee Alvin Greene.

The Democrats are so visibly apoplectic at Greene's victory, their talking points include blaming Republicans for planting Greene as some sort of prank. Predictably, the leftwing media machine is playing right along, doing the bidding of the Democratic leadership.

Enter Stewart, who if nothing else, doesn't fall into line as easily as the liberal lapdog media. When Stewart rails on the Democrats, the latter needs to look in the mirror. Interestingly, he seems to be doing it more often.

Should this be considered new evidence that Obama is a Muslim? He was registered as Muslim twice when he was enrolled in Indonesian schools; he referred to his 'Muslim faith' in an interview with George Stephanopolous in 2008 before the latter promptly got Obama back on track; his middle name is Islamic; there is a ten minute video on the internet that captures all of his questionable amicable references to Islam.

Now this. Via Israel Today:
The feeling among the Israeli public is that Obama is appeasing the Muslim world at the expense of Israel.

"The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim," said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV. That could explain why Obama has instructed that the term "Islamic extremism" no longer be used in official government documents and statements.
My first question is why did Egyptian's Foreign Minister reveal something told to him in confidence? He even eliminated the, "Oh, I forgot" excuse by actually saying that Obama told him "in confidence" that he is a Muslim.

What's really sad is that there was a significant number of us who saw Obama's leanings, allegiances, and questionable history long before he was elected. Israel Today references Yediot Ahronot and a quote given them from a senior Israeli official.
"Obama is a real problem for Israel," a senior official told told Yediot. "He is Israel's biggest strategic catastrophe."
The entire article from Israel Today has an excellent insider's take into what's really going on behind the scenes and they back it up with some strong sources. Be sure to read the whole thing.

You would think that the tolerant leftwing media would be proud of South Carolina Democratic Senatorial nominee Alvin Greene for overcoming such long odds. He's the quintessential example of the people the left is supposedly fighting for - Greene is a minority with military experience who is collecting unemployment.

Who better to help push the leftwing agenda? Well, CNN's Jeanne Moos basically mocks Greene for a solid two minutes in this segment. It's quite easy to tell that the leftwing media is embarrassed of Mr. Greene. This isn't likely to play well with those who voted for him.

The left once again proves they're not who they say they are. If they were, they'd be supporting Alvin Greene. Instead, at CNN, they're making comparisons between him and Alvin, the chipmunk.

The Alvin Greene embarrassment just keeps rolling along for the Democrats. After the unheard of candidate Alvin Greene came out of nowhere to win the South Carolina primary and will go up against Jim DeMint in November. This interview he does with Mark Levin definitely doesn't disappoint - unless you're a Democrat.

There are several noteworthy points. Possibly the biggest eye-roller is Greene having to be told by Levin to turn his radio down. Hearing him explain his honorable discharge from the army is entertaining as well. At the end, it's also very obvious that Greene can't remember the name of his Republican opponent in the General.

In fact, whoever wrote down that information in Greene's list of talking points also forgot to include DeMint's first name. After asking Greene multiple times who his opponent was, Alvin didn't seem to know until he seemed to find what he was looking for on a piece of paper. Once Greene finally answered the question, he said, "Republican incumbent Senator Jim DeMint". Levin should have asked him for the Senator's first name. I'm actually not sure that Greene would have been able to answer that one.

Added bonus.. Watch as this Alvin Greene voter says she pulled the lever for him because his name reminded her of singer Al Green. Wow.
