Four-Term Illinois Congressman Abruptly Resigns Amidst Ethics Probe

CONGRESS IN “SCHOCK” OVER SUDDEN RESIGNATION OF YOUNG, “RISING STAR” HOUSE REPUBLICAN

by Sharon Rondeau

Rep. Aaron Schock began serving his fourth term in the U.S. House of Representatives in January. He has resigned following the launch of an ethics probe but could still be charged criminally if probable cause is found to exist.

(Mar. 17, 2015) — U.S. Representative Aaron Schock has resigned, according to NBC News and other mainstream media sources.

Shock (R-IL18), who is 33 years old, has served in Congress since 2009 and will vacate his seat at the end of this month.

In February it was announced that the Office of Congressional Ethics was probing Schock’s use of private jets, the redecorating of his Washington, DC office, mileage reimbursement reports and tickets to entertainment events using taxpayer dollars.  Last month, ABC News reported that Schock was being investigated for possibly violating legal solicitation limits for a political committee related to his congressional office.

As of press time, Schock’s congressional website is still functional.

Elected to a local school board at age 19, Schock was considered a “rising star” in his party after having won election to Congress at age 27.

Schock reportedly “resigned less than 12 hours after POLITICO raised questions about tens of thousands of dollars in mileage reimbursements he received for his personal vehicle” and did not inform the Republican House leadership of his decision.

On February 5, 2015, ABC reported that Schock’s senior adviser, Benjamin Cole, resigned over “racist” comments made on Facebook.  ABC reported that left-leaning Buzzfeed and ThinkProgress located the posts, which were dated between 2010 and 2013.

Buzzfeed’s list of the posts is here.

In contrast, the spending of the Obamas on fundraising trips, vacations and official business does not appear to have been questioned by the mainstream media other than The Examiner. Rather, the government watchdog group Judicial Watch has probed the expenditures through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and found that they amount to multiple millions in travel costs alone.

The Examiner presented an itemization of the Obamas’ trips and vacations since 2009 but clarified that “some trips by the first lady and daughters are kept secret from the media, so a full accounting is difficult.”

Like many congressmen, Schock had been approached by at least one constituent about the findings of the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse in regard to the long-form birth certificate image bearing Obama’s name posted on the White House website on April 27, 2011.

On March 1, 2012, after six months of investigation, the posse announced that the birth certificate image and Obama’s Selective Service registration form are “computer-generated forgeries.” A second press conference in July of that year confirmed that the standard of probable cause had been surpassed in regard to the birth certificate forgery.

Last May, Schock’s constituent, Michael Jackson, sent a Sheriff’s Kit containing a presentation of Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo to a group of constitutional sheriffs detailing how the posse determined that the birth certificate image is a forgery.

In follow-up communications with Schock’s then-district office Chief of Staff, Carol Merna, Jackson received no response to the information contained in the Sheriff’s Kit but the revelation that Merna would soon be leaving her post.

The kits were produced en masse by Michael Volin, founder of WheresObamaBirthCertificate.com (WOBC), and delivered in person or by mail to more than 200 members of Congress. A recent project conducted by WOBC volunteers and CDR Charles F. Kerchner, Jr. (Ret.) delivered the kits to every county sheriff, state attorney general, and governor in the country.

During the summer of 2013, Jackson reported that his cell phone had been mysteriously blocked from directly contacting members of Congress. Further, he received a call from the Washington, DC Capitol Police which he perceived as threatening, warning him that he would be arrested if he continued to call Congress.

On one occasion Jackson had gone in person to visit Schock’s district office and was stopped by a U.S. marshal without explanation, then allowed to proceed.

On February 25, 2013, Jackson sent an email to Merna requesting that she communicate to Schock that the Cold Case Posse investigation was ongoing and that investigators, as well as Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio, welcomed inquiries from members of Congress about their work.

In both 2012 and 2013, Jackson asked Schock to define the meaning of the term “natural born Citizen” contained in Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution which applies only to the president and commander-in-chief.  Jackson received no response at either juncture.

While the media has demonstrated a recent keen interest in probing Schock’s spending, trips, and congressional activity, it has obliquely ridiculed anyone probing Obama’s background, which has been obscured since his announcement in 2007 that he would seek the presidency.

In six weeks, Shock’s political career ended over allegations of improper spending of taxpayer money, but the forgery of government documents on behalf of Obama has never been investigated by an American media outlet over the last six years.

Obama, too, quickly catapulted onto the national political stage as a “rising star” after addressing the 2004 Democratic National Committee convention, during which he extolled America’s bountiful opportunities and appeared to embrace traditional American values.

Having claimed to be a Christian during his 2008 presidential campaign, Obama now appears to many to be highly sympathetic to Islam while denigrating Christianity and, in particular, the nation of Israel.

Last year Zullo indicated that the posse’s ongoing investigation “turned very dark” for a time and that it discovered “gut-wrenching” information yet to be released.

Zullo told The Post & Email nearly two years ago that the birth certificate forgery was “created with the intent to deceive.”

    It shows that you don’t have to be a DEMOCRAT to be an ENTITLEMENT CREEP-you can be RNC and be an ENTITLEMENT CREEP too! Last time I checked-these people were elected to be “public trustees” to serve the people, the laws, the Constitution. It is amazing how once elected, these people slip into the land of “Royalty” on other people’s dimes and think nothing of theft, glut and self glorification when these jobs are about serving the people and the country-NOT THEMSELVES. The Clinton’s are at the top of the list along with most of the DNC and their criminal assistants. Most Americans don’t have a clue as to what/how/where this all started and who is really running the DNC show. Seeing RNC members barking conservative deliverance while doing just the opposite classifies them as Democrats in Tax And Spent follies. Too many members in the RNC know what has been going on with the DNC/Obama coup since 2008 when Fitzpatrick and hundreds of others began attempting to serve Criminal Presentments for Treason/Perjury/Election Fraud from 2008. Also, we must realize that statements from John McCain and other RNC and DNC members have revealed their secret cabal to keep pay checks rolling at any cost for them. The fact that 6 Veterans have been illegally arrested/imprisoned with no trial/no rights/no press didn’t happen by the weather changing, it was ordered by high level behind doors DNC Operatives like Valerie Jarrett/David Axelrod/Joe Biden/Nancy Pelosi/Obama, etc. to keep the heat off Obama and the DNC. Hillary did not release her server for more than one reason-there are personal things there that are not things she wants America to know about like high level corruption through SERCO and all the real dirty business they have carried out that is too much to reveal in this comment box. In time, much of the dirty laundry will be out to dry but if they all get out of office before “Discovery”- how hard and expensive will it be to prosecute them then? The DNC has successfully blocked Criminal Presentments illegally throughout all courts in America for over 6 years and we have had proof through multiple servings, The Post Email and other sources that have revealed the depth of corruption that is and was planned from the early 1950’s when White and Black radicals employed their groups to pull together to bring baby Obama to POTUS. Books were written and much spin was applied to press and story to take an illegal Article 2 POTUS to power including Pelosi and Biden to falsify the 2008 DNC vetting papers that they signed and sent to 50 states planning to use Hawaii as a birth place for Bari Malik Shabazz.
