Text of email PROVES Jean Schmidt took money from Turks to deny Armenian Genocide

You may remember my first post on this subject from almost two weeks ago:

Jean Schmidt & Adolph Hitler versus Dave Krikorian & Ronald Reagan at the Ohio Elections Commission (OEC)

Now this story has been picked up by the: Washington Post; LA Times; MSNBC; and virtually every major and small paper in the entire county. So I decided to have a closer look at the public record of this case to see if there is anything the media is not telling us.

Yesterday at the Ohio Elections Commission David Krikorian submitted a defense in OEC case 2009E 003. His defense (which is now part of the public record) included an interesting email:

Dear Turkish American Community,

2008 is the election year. We, TURKISH-AMERICANS, have to remain alert and keep educating members of the Congress on this and many other issues that we care about. Most importantly, we have to show our own political representatives that we EXIST and that we are a force to be reckoned with.

I urge you to show your continuous support to the Turkish American Friends: Congressman Dan Burton (IN) and Congresswoman Jean Schmidt (OH) with your generous contributions.



You are cordially invited to a Turkish American Luncheon Reception honoring CONGRESSWOMAN JEAN SCHMIDT (Republican- Ohio/2nd District)

Monday, February 18, 2008 1:00 – 2:30 pm

Congresswoman Schmidt is one of the few members of congress who actually read Guenter Lewy's book about the genocide and is one of the few members of congress who actually doesn't believe that it was genocide. An Armenian American is running against her in the election because she opposes the resolution. We have a member of congress from Ohio who is willing to stand up to the Armenian lobby, and it is important for the Turkish American community to support her.

Make donation online: http://www.jeanschm

Please let the organizer know your contribution by via email so he can update our list accordingly.

The key part of this email is: “Congresswoman Schmidt is one of the few members of congress who actually read Guenter Lewy's book about the genocide and is one of the few members of congress who actually doesn't believe that it was genocide.”

So, the Turks are asking for money because Schmidt “does not believe that it was a genocide.” Sounds like Krikorian was right on the money when he accused Schmidt of taking money to deny the Genocide.

Another really interesting part of the defense included references to this report:

It looks like there is a much larger effort on the part of the Turkish propaganda machine and once again Krikorian was correct when he called Jean Schmidt a “puppet” of this effort.

The best part of the above article is the conclusion:
“But as the saying goes, a lie isn't the other side of any story. It's just a lie.” "When it comes to the historical reality of the Armenian genocide, there is no 'Armenian' or 'Turkish' side of the question, any more than there is a 'Jewish' or 'German' side of the historical reality of the Holocaust," writes Torben Jorgensen, of the Danish Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies. "There is a scientific side and an unscientific side — acknowledgement or denial."”

I’m sure there will be more to come in this case (I'm still reading the public record and there is much more to share), and I’m sure as we approach the final hearing more and more people will realize how guilty Jean Schmidt really is in this case

Jean Schmidt & Adolph Hitler versus Dave Krikorian & Ronald Reagan at the Ohio Elections Commission (OEC)

Please read the FDH Lounge version of this post for embedded links and comments.

By Nate Noy

Surprise, surprise, Jean Schmidt is at it again. Some of you may remember this flyer that Congressional candidate Dave Krikorian distributed just before the 2008 election. The flyer accurately conveyed that Jean Schmidt has taken over $30,000 from Muslim Turks to deny one of the greatest travesties of the 20th century, i.e., the Genocide of a million and a half Christian Armenians at the hands of Muslim Turks. It seems Jean has just filed a complaint with the OEC regarding the flyer.

Schmidt publicized the complaint in a Turkish newspaper last week. In the next few days I’m sure this story will hit the Cincinnati news cycle. One was to wonder why would Schmidt do this now? There are two plausible reasons for this: (1) she is in the pocket of the Turkish lobby; and/or (2) she is afraid of losing to Krikorian in 2010.

Remember Jean’s FAKE college degree? The one she lied about for 17 years and the one that the OEC reprimanded her for lying about, saying that she had a “reckless disregard for truth” and made “false and misleading statements.” How funny is it that she would EVER take anything back to a body that has already essentially convicted her of being a liar? Does she have ANY chance of winning this complaint against Krikorian?

What is the motivation of a person to reappear before a commission that has publically reprimanded that person as a liar? Schmidt is clearly afraid of losing to Krikorian, remember that she had 44.83 percent of the vote in 2008, i.e., more people voted against her than for her. However, the key here is the amount of money that the Turks are paying her to pretend the Armenian Genocide never happened.

What did Ronald Reagan have to say about this?
Ronald Reagan
April 22, 1981, proclamation
"Like the genocide of the Armenians before it, and the genocide of the Cambodians which followed it, ... the lessons of the Holocaust must never be forgotten."

What about Hitler?
Adolf Hitler
While persuading his associates that a Jewish holocaust would be tolerated by the west stated...
"Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?"
“Our strength lies in our intensive attacks and our barbarity...After all, who today remembers the genocide of the Armenians?”

So on the one hand you have the greatest conservative president EVER acknowledging the Armenian Genocide, and on the other you have the most evil person in history utilizing this as a roadmap for further atrocities and relying on the fact that people in the west may ignore it.

Schmidt is on the record denying the Genocide. The Genocide really did happen, this is a fact. A review of the FEC website shows a number of large contributions from Turkish PACs and Turkish nationals to Jean Schmidt. They have even held special fundraisers for Schmidt and have publically praised her for her denial of the Genocide. Without a doubt her opinion on this matter is bought and paid for by the Muslims.

So in a nutshell the story here is this: Jean Schmidt takes a lot of money from Muslim Turks to deny a historical fact, Dave Krikorian calls her out, Schmidt runs to the commission that has already convicted her of being a liar and files a complaint.

Krikorian has NOTHING to fear here, there is no Ohio election law that prevents a candidate from telling the truth about an opponent. Schmidt on the other hand has plenty to fear, and she is clearly showing this by her actions. This is yet another example why Jean Schmidt is not fit to hold any office and anyone that votes for her is a fool, the end is near for Schmidt, it’s just a shame that we all have to wait until November 2010 for Krikorian to defeat her.

David Krikorian v. Jean Schmidt v. Vic Wulsin Ohio 2nd Congressional Predictions

Note: Please jump over to the the cross-post at The FDH Lounge for the juicy links in this post.

By Nate Noy

The game changer in this race happened over the weekend. This flier (link) was distributed on a large scale throughout the 2nd District from Saturday until tonight. Today the Right to Life movement was abuzz as the flier was emailed and circulated to a majority of members in Ohio 2. Jean Schmidt's refusal to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide and the fact that she has taken blood money from Muslim Turks to hide the truth regarding the slaughter of Christian Armenians has cost Jean Schmidt a significant portion of her base, and in my opinion will be the proverbial “straw that broke the camel's back” (pun intended). Jean Schmidt will NOT win without this part of the base and David Krikorian will win Ohio 2 tomorrow.

My prediction is this:

David Krikorian 38%
Jean Schmidt 35%
Victoria Wulsin 27%

I predict that David will win Adams, Brown, Clermont, and Hamilton counties. He will finish 2nd in Warren and 3rd in Pike and Scioto.

Jean Schmidt will carry Warren county, and finish 2nd in the other six counties.

Victoria Wulsin will win both Pike and Scioto counties and finish last in the other five counties.

David will poll close to 60% in Brown and in the 40's in both Clermont and Adams. Hamilton will be in the high 30's and Warren in the low 30's. Pike and Scioto are likely to be in the mid-20's but will be offset by a strong victory in Brown.

Jean Schmidt will only approach 40 in Warren and that will be her high water mark for the night. Expect to see her close to 20% in Brown, the mid-20's in Scioto and the mid 30's in the other four counties.

The Republican inner circle was also abuzz today with poll results showing this to be a two-horse race between David and Jean. What I heard was that Vic is actually in the low-20's or even the high teens, but I think the DCCC spent enough money to keep her north of 25%, but she will still be below 28%.

This thing will be close, but Krikorian was build a strong base against the worst elected official in the history of Southern Ohio. I may miss having Jean to kick around after tomorrow, but as I have stated before it is checkmate for her, and David Krikorian was the grandmaster.

Jean Schmidt's link to Islamic Terrorists

Note read the FDH Lounge version of this post for links.

By Nate Noy

I have spoken with David Krikorian the independent candidate for the 2nd Congressional District in Ohio to get to the bottom of a whisper campaign against him that has been circling conservative circles in southwest Ohio. David donated money to Democratic candidate Victoria Wulsin during her last election against Jean Schmidt, and many conservatives have wondered “Why would a conservative like David Krikorian give money to a liberal like Vic Wulsin?”

The answer David gave me to the above question is one that I believe clearly validates that he is in fact a true honorable American conservative. The answer David gave is this: “I supported Vic Wulsin because Jean Schmidt refuses to acknowledge the slaughter of MY FAMILY and 1.5 million other Christian Armenians at the hands of Muslim Turks and she has taken BLOOD money to deny the Genocide.”

For those of you that don't know in 1919 the Turks began a process of slaughtering Armenians in what today is now Turkey. In fact, Adolph Hitler himself was quoted as saying “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?” Hitler used what Turkey did as his road map to the Jewish holocaust.

On May 22, 2008 Jean Schmidt took a contribution from Turkish Coalition USA PAC, another in a long line of contributions that total close to $30,000. That same day she gave a speech on the house floor praising Ataturk, where she stated: “May 19 is a very important day when it all began. On this day a great leader began his journey, a vision became reality and a great nation was born. We should all learn a lesson from this man's life. A leader with a vision coupled with determination can lay the roots for a great future. Turkey's neighbors who today wrestle with their own beginnings should take note.”

Jean Schmidt has continued to deny the Genocide of the Christian Armenians and praised the person that created a road map for future terrorists.

Here is what Pope John Paul II and Ronald Reagan had to say about the Armenian Genocide:

“The Armenian Genocide has been a prelude to the horrors which followed: the two world wars, innumerable regional conflicts and deliberately organized campaigns of extermination that have ended the lives of millions of believers.” Pope John Paul II (September 26, 2001)

“Like the Genocide of the Armenians before it, and the Genocide of the Cambodians which followed it and like too many other such persecutions of too many other peoples the lessons of the Holocaust must never be forgotten.” Ronald Reagan (April 22, 1981)

The bottom line is that Jean Schmidt refuses to recognize the Armenian Genocide and she has taken campaign contributions from Muslims to be the mouthpiece of their agenda. Today Islamic terrorists thrive on this line of thinking. By ignoring what happened and refusing to recognize the lessons of the past we are all doomed to repeat these horrors. One of the root causes of the terror threat we all face today is allowing this line of thought to infiltrate our society all the way to the highest levels of elected officials.

With people like Jean Schmidt in office every American faces an increased treat from the radical Islamic terrorists. Jean Schmidt WILL TAKE THEIR MONEY and continue to be a voice for them. We MUST send her a message that this is not acceptable in America today and vote her out of office on Tuesday.

UPDATE: Check this story out.

Al-Qaida is recruiting the Turks that Jean Schmidt is the voice of the kill American soldiers. Thanks again Jean!

“German-Turk suicide bomber Cüneyt Çiftçi was lauded by Turkish militant Islamic Web sites as a hero for killing 70 U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan in March.”

BREAKING NEWS Jean Schmidt Violates Ohio Election Law; Could Face Jail Time

NOTE Please click here for The FDH Lounge Multimedia Magazine version of this story that include the links referenced below and is where I broke the story.

By Nate Noy

In an effort to promote the defeat of Victoria Wulsin, Jean Schmidt has blatantly once again made false and misleading statements and showed a reckless disregard for truth by fabricating the financial position of Victoria Wulsin's campaign.

I have prepared an Ohio Elections Commission complaint, naming Jean Schmidt, the Schmidt for Congress Committee, Schmidt spokesperson Brian Pfaff and blogger Matt Hurley as defendants. The compliant will be filed on Monday.

Here are the FACTS:

The Federal Elections Commission website shows cash on hand for candidates in the Ohio 2nd Congressional District. Here are the totals for Jean Schmidt and Victoria Wulsin as of October 15, 2008:

Jean Schmidt $157,589
Victoria Wulsin $179,899

On October 16, 2008, blogger Matt Hurley posted a press release from Jean Schmidt verbatim. The release was dated Thursday, October 16, 2008 and included "Paid for by Schmidt for Congress Committee."

(Note: here is a link to the post which one can assume Hurley will delete as soon as he becomes aware that his blatant violation of the law has been discovered.)

The release headline was: "Schmidt Enters Final Stretch with 14 point Lead and $40,000.00 Money Advantage -- New Schmidt Poll Shows Commanding Lead with Few Undecided Voters Left."

The title of the release includes a fabrication of the truth, since Jean Schmidt clearly did NOT have a $40,000 money advantage on October 16, 2008; instead, Victoria Wulsin had a $22,310 advantage.

(Note: the 14 point lead is also a fabrication, but Schmidt can present her bogus poll results to defend herself; she cannot defend against the FEC report that proves she is once again lying.)

The release also includes:

"Further, we enter the final weeks with a significant cash advantage during a period where cash very much matters,” Bruce Pfaff, Schmidt Campaign spokesman said.

Federal Election Commission filings show that somehow the Wulsin Campaign spent $440,000 in July, August, and September, leaving the campaign treasury with almost $50,000 fewer dollars than Schmidt. That amount, $50,000, equates to nearly a week of television advertising.

“It is borderline malpractice for a campaign to spend that much money before the battle. Her campaign seems message less and clearly adrift. Wulsin’s attack commercials have driven her own negatives up to record levels, all the while Congresswoman Schmidt enjoys the record high approval ratings,” Pfaff added.

“Her own advertising has made Victoria Wulsin the least popular candidate running in all of Southern Ohio. She has spent $440,000 to earn the title of least-liked politician in our area. If she keeps this up with what little money she has left, she’ll be competing for who comes in third with the “Independent,” Pfaff concluded."

There are multiple fabrications of the truth in the above statement from the Schmidt campaign. Clearly, Schmidt does NOT have a money advantage, this is a blatant lie, i.e. a "false statement" under Ohio law.

The Ohio Revised Code states the following:
3517.21 Infiltration of campaign - false statements in campaign materials - election of candidate.
(B)(10) Post, publish, circulate, distribute, or otherwise disseminate a false statement concerning a candidate, either knowing the same to be false or with reckless disregard of whether it was false or not, if the statement is designed to promote the election, nomination, or defeat of the candidate.

Clearly, the statements in the Schmidt press release are (1) false statements and (2) designed to promote the defeat of a candidate.

The penalty provision of the ORC states:
3517.992 Penalties for violations on or after 8-24-95.
(V) Whoever violates section 3517.21 or 3517.22 of the Revised Code shall be imprisoned for not more than six months or fined not more than five thousand dollars, or both.

What this all means and the next steps:

First, since Schmidt has a histroy with the OEC and has previoulsy been found guilty of violating this section of the code, so expect the OEC to go for jail time for Schmidt on this one. Hopefully, Matt Hurley and Brian Pfaff will also receive a severe punishment for their roles in yet another fraud being perpetrated on the public by Jean Schmidt.

The next step is to file the formal complaint. I'll wait until mid-day Monday to file, since it's likely the Wulsin camp or the DCCC will beat me to the punch, since I have broken this story here on The FDH Lounge Multimedia Magazine.

After the complaint is filed, there will be a probable cause hearing within two days and a formal hearing within seven. I am hopeful that Jean Schmidt is convicted before the election.

In a previous post, I stated that I want to see Jean Schmidt go out in the "perp walk." Thanks to Matt Hurley (the only person I could find that posted her post verbatim), I may finally get my wish.

This is a clear sign that Schmidt knows she will lose this election. She has released bogus polls, been destroyed in the debates, her supporters are all silent now, and she knows she is not the best candidate. I hope the State of Ohio has a nice warm cell ready for Jean once the election is over.

Jean Schmidt supporters DEAD silent as David Krikorian closes in on winning OH 2

Note: Please jump over to the the cross-post at The FDH Lounge for the juicy links in this post.

By Nate Noy

Time is finally running out on Jean Schmidt, and her biggest supporters KNOW this. Alas, they can do nothing but keep silent and watch as Schmidt's campaign is "stuck in a ditch way out in the middle of nowhere."

Where is Matt Hurley with another Schmidt bogus poll press release? Jean is claiming to be 14 points ahead with 52%, when she won the last election by 1.06% (without David Krikorian in the race) and Schmidt polled this summer at a whopping 24.2%.

Where is Tom Blumer praising Schmidt for voting against the bailout and continuing to claim that Schmidt is not a RINO, then having to admit he was "let down" after she voted FOR a worse version of the bill that added an additional $150 billion in pork?

Where is Dave the Nix Guy? He stated "I am quite proud of my 2nd district Rep, Jean Schmidt. She probably just secured her reelection with just this vote alone" Nix Guy then went dead silent when Jean changed her vote.

Where are they, you ask? Well, I can tell you that you can stick a fork in all three of them because they are DONE! Just as Jean Schmidt is finally done as well. Their credibility is SHOT because they trusted one of the most vile and deceitful people on the planet, good old Jean Schmidt.

Jean Schmidt is nothing more than a shill for the RINO NeoCon agenda. The three aforementioned bloggers should have figured this out long ago. These three guys try to act like conservatives, but the scoreboard at the end of the day states otherwise, because they have become shills for Jean Schmidt (ironic they are shills for a shill).

The really SAD thing is that David Krikorian truly believes in a conservative agenda, one that likely aligns very well with the purported views of these guys. They should EMBRACE David as thier candidate of choice RIGHT NOW before it is too late.

The really funny thing is that none of the above can find a way to criticize David on any of his positions on the issues because they claim to believe what he does. So they are forced to throw racial slurs at him calling him the "Angry Armenian" and blasting him for questioning Jean's claims of being struck by a hit-and-run driver.

In my mind, the Jean Schmidt hit-and-run driver will be found about the same time the REAL killers in the O.J. Simpson case are tracked down. If a person has lied about a fake college degree for 17 years, gotten caught, lied on TV as part of the cover-up, and been reprimanded by the elections commission for a "reckless disregard for truth," then why is it not logical to question ANYTHING she says as being true? (Note that when I heard about this, my initial reaction was "that's awful, I don't want Jean to get taken out like that, I want to see her do the perp walk some day with her hands cuffed in front of her as she is marched into custody.") It was a logical question by future Congressman Krikorian and many of us logically thought the same thing, so blasting David for any remarks on this subject is nothing more than a Schmidt slimeball tactic.

This week, Jean attempted to manipulate David Krikorian and Victoria Wulsin into signing a "clean campaign pledge." Here is the problem: something is not an "attack" per se if it is TRUE! I commend Victoria Wulsin for sharing the TRUTH about Jean Schmidt; people should know everything about her record. Jean Schmidt has embarrassed us all and Vic has the proof on her website

But guess what, people? David Krikorian has already been running a clean campaign focusing on the issues. His response to Jean's request was: "First of all, let’s be clear, I haven’t run any attack ads against either of my opponents and do not plan to."

David's additional response to Jean's request was: "Let's do a third debate instead." However, David literally CRUSHED Jean Schmidt in the last two debates and her puppet-masters want NO PART of a third beatdown from David.

David Krikorian is far and away the BEST candidate in this race. People need to get that, and all they have to do is take a brief look at the Krikorian Plan and there is ZERO doubt that they should vote for David.

When David is elected in 11 days, the residents of Ohio 2 can once again be proud to tell people who their congressperson is. The taint and embarressment of having Jean Schmidt will finally be washed away. It's finally checkmate for Jean Schmidt, folks, and David Krikorian is the grandmaster that will finally bring one home for the good guys.

David Krikorian dominates Ohio 2nd Congressional debate v. Jean Schmidt and Victoria Wulsin

By Nate Noy

WOW is my first impression of David Krikorian. He's on top of his game and ready to be the only independent in Congress next year. His debating skills are outstanding, and his views on the issues are right on the money with those of the people of Ohio 2. A vote for David is like picking your smartest friend, adding 20 IQ points and then sending that person to Congress. I am convinced after tonight that (1) David will win this election and (2) he will be the best Congressman in the history of Ohio 2.

Below is my scorecard from tonight. In case you missed it CET has a webcast.Scorecard

Krikorian 96 points
Wulsin 71 points
Schmidt 28 points

What the scores mean:
Krikorian 96 points

90's: A score in the 90's indicates that you felt that the speaker did a superb job. You thoroughly enjoyed listening to the speaker and would go out of your way to hear him or her again — if you were in the habit of listening to speeches. You would be delighted to have this person as the advocate of a cause that you supported.

David was the HAMMER tonight. He was masterful at working in strong rebuttals and his positions on the issues made sense. I guess that is what happens when you get an over-qualified person running for Congress. Anyone that watched the debate will be casting a vote for David, there is little doubt about it.

Wulsin 71 points

70's: This indicates an average speech, neither very good nor very bad. You would not mind listening to this person again but you would be particularly pleased about it either. As an advocate, this person would not strengthen your cause.

Wulsin made some good points but her view from the far left is not in-line with the views of the people of Ohio 2. I listen to Vic and it's like having my mom give me a talk. She's a super-nice lady, and a good person. If it wasn't for the fact that David is the MOST qualified candidate then I could vote for Vic, I trust her.... but her views on so so many subjects are too far to the left. Vic should move to a liberal district, she would do a fine job representing the liberal agenda. However, Ohio 2 is NOT liberal, so Krikorian is the ONLY option for any conservative.

Schmidt 28 points
50's: This mark indicates that the speech failed completely. Something must have gone very wrong. You would go out of your way to avoid listening to this person again.

I have not had a root canal in about 10 years but I would opt to have another one in lieu of EVER hearing Jean Schmidt speak again. She comes across as a liar, and since she's already been convicted of fraud by the Ohio Elections Commission for a "reckless disregard for truth" and making "false and misleading" statements there is little doubt that the dribble she speaks was prepared for her and she has NO CLUE about the issues.

To call Schmidt the greatest embarrassment in Ohio 2 history would be the understatement of the decade. How can ANYONE EVER vote for this woman if they actually hear her speak? Jean Schmidt is HORRIBLE, and likely has an IQ in the 90's (if she is lucky). NO ONE should EVER vote for Jean Schmidt and if you take the time to listen to her you will know why.

Scores by category are provided below.

Krikorian A+ 19 points excellent
Wulsin B 15 points good
Schmidt F 6 points very poor

Krikorian A+ 19 points excellent
Wulsin A 17 points very good
Schmidt F 5 points very poor

Evidence and Logic
Krikorian A++ 20 points superb
Wulsin D 10 points poor
Schmidt D 9 points poor

Krikorian A 18 points very good
Wulsin A 17 points very good
Schmidt F 4 points very poor

Krikorian A++ 20 points superb
Wulsin C 12 points fair
Schmidt F 4 points very poor

Krikorian 96 points
Wulsin 71 points
Schmidt 28 points

Cross posting

I'm bringing back this blog for a few weeks to cross post with The FDH Lounge website. The election between David Krikorian, Victoria Wulsin and Jean Schmidt deserves as much coverage as possible, since it is THE Congressional race to watch in 2008.
