No, I am not looking for Michael Jackson or his family who are frantically trying to profit from his passing. I am wondering where and why The Reverend Jesse Jackson and his son, Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., have been virtually invisible over the past few months.
After years of constant press coverage of the actions of The Reverend and the ascendancy of Jesse Jackson, Jr. into political prominence under the banner of the Chicago Daley political machine, one must wonder why they are both so quiet these days. Do leopards change their spots?
During the excessive television coverage of the Michael Jackson death and funeral, The Reverend Jesse suddenly was demoted to a secondary role behind the camera mugging of The Reverend Al Sharpton. At the same time, Jesse’s son is suddenly off the pages of our newspapers and television screens since his name was prominently mentioned in the investigation of Illinois Senate seat “pay for play” by then Governor Rod Blagojevich.
Do you, too, suspect that there is something to hide regarding the Jackson family? Whenever publicity seeking individuals suddenly vanish from their normal pattern of behavior it is just logical to get very suspicious. If and when the Blagojevich indictment eventually comes to trial, I suspect that a very juicy story will unfold involving this power and privilege seeking father and son.
Just this afternoon the House Ethics Committee announced that it will delay the investigation of Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.’s involvement in the Blagojevich scandal. Who does this surprise?
As I have suggested in the past, (6/23/09), I urge you to read Kenneth R. Timmerman’s very revealing tome, “Shakedown – Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson.” It is beyond reason and logic to learn of the shenanigans this family has been permitted to get away with over the years of political corruption in Chicago and across our nation. It is appropriate to question just where the state and federal prosecutors have been all these years without any action being taken against the Jackson’s dealings.
