Super Sleuths at Progress Illinois

John Powers 20 May 2010 4 Comments

Progress Illinois, the leading Left Wing blog in Illinois, thinks it is “curious indeed” that Rep. Judy Biggert would have the audacity to question whether Pres. Obama exeterted political pressure to rescue Shorebank (curiously one of the few “community” banks with operations in a large number of foreign countries, large community that)

It might do Progress Illinois well to read the leading Left Wing blog in Illinois, Progress Illinois on May 19th, where it was reported that

Thanks to some prodding by top Illinois lawmakers, Wall Street giants have agreed to raise $135 million in private funds to rescue Chicago’s ShoreBank.

I think they might be on to something.  Just who could have been doing this prodding?

    Illinois lawmakers could have been doing the prodding to protect one of their banks? Last time I checked, Gov. Quinn and Mike Madigan don’t have jurisdiction over the U.S. Treasury Department. Biggert is asking about the Obama administration’s involvement. That’s quite different.

    The mystery is being unraveled…soon it may be revealed that Obama, Emanuel, and Axelrod are from Illinois. I can’t wait for the next installment of Progress Illinois!

    Watch Glenn Beck. His staff did a good job investing the links between Shore Bank investors and the current Obama administration today May 20, 2010. Did you know that Obama’s mother and Tim Geithner’s father both served on the Ford Foundation? I am going to dig into that conection and see what I can find. In the words of Laugh-In’s Artie Johnson, “Interesting…..very intersting.”

    oops. I meant investigating, not investing
