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)

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.

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)

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.
