The Coeymans Rule: “When Truth Fails, Just Lie!”

26 May

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

“When the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all the Truth” John 16:12-15

It Seems That When the Personal Attacks and Self-Esteem Problems of a RCS Central School District Board of Education Member, Josephine O’Connor, Don’t Gain Any Ground–And She’s Shown to Be A Liar–She Enlists Her Father and the Corrupt Coeymans Police to Defend Her Dishonor!

The Fat Bastard Will Be Named Soon!

It’s a Psychological Fact That When People See A Picture or Read a Text, They See What They Want to See or Read What they Want to Understand. Imagine What Can Happen When A Sociopath or An Illiterate Foul-mouthed Oaf Enter the Equation! Then Add the Compromised, Corrupt Coeymans Police and It Really Gets Ugly!

But one fact is abundantly clear:

Another one? Can you afford it, Coeymans?

If there was an arrest made without probable cause and, given the circumstances that point indisputably toward an agenda of wanton retaliation, and if law enforcement acted imprudently on the merest allegation of an already known perp, and on that flimsiest of evidence failed to make due inquiry as to probable cause and failed to exercise the least damaging but effective power to prevent a crime or disturbance, there will be law suits and there will be prosecution. Don’t be mistaken! There had better been solid evidence on which to proceed, and a known loose cannon and  liar’s word is NOT, at least not in this country (yet), probable cause; at least as of this evening we still have a principle of due process.

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk System
Is this the American Way?

We’ve already reported on the Coeymanazis and the compromised and corrupt Coeymans Police Department (see our article Corrupt Coeymans Police Effectiveness Compromised!!!). And we’ve also reported on the underhanded, scandalous practice in the High School of teachers enlisting students to bully other students in retaliation (see our articles  Schools, Superintendent:  No Response to Allegations of Bullying… and Stop the Presses…EXTRA! Bully Gangs at RCS). We’ve reported on James Latter’s misconduct and his involvement in the RCS Athletic Association’s allegedly fraudulent activities (see  James Latter: Why Is He Still On the Board of Education?). And we’ve reported on Gerald “Jerry” Deluca’s conflicts of interest in his so-called “public affairs” and political influence business while an employee of the scandalous Coeymans Police Department (see Can You Explain This, Jerry?). Do you really need to be reminded of some of the irregularities before, during, and after the 2012-13 school budget vote? (If you do, please see our article, More Irregularities in the Voting?).

Wisdom & Justice

The phenomenon of the BLOGGER…that disembodied VOICE in the heads of the Coeymanazis…has become an obsession, the monkey on thier backs driving them absolutely nutters! So like any good gang of psychopaths, they lash out at the harpies, the black flies that are driving them to distraction…but they’re fighting a spirit: the Spirit of Truth! The Spirit of Fairness! The Spirit of Justice! And they want to destroy it in any way possible.

Which brings us full circle to the most recent events of what sick minds can do:

We recently published an article, at Josephine O’Connor’s explicit invitation, reproducing and commenting on her antics at the RCS High School (see Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!). It appears that Ms O’Connor not only has self-esteem problems and hearing problems, she has problems with the truth, and she seems also to have problems with her eyesight and her reading. But those are mild compared to the problems O’Connor’s most recent antics are causing!

First of all, we hear, one of O’Connor’s relatives, allegedly her father [pending verification of name], from whom O’Connor allegedly was “estranged” for a number of years, appeared at a local business and put on a disorderly display of foul-mouthed, local low-life misconduct that was excused for what it was, considering the source, but the fat fool couldn’t let it rest and accept his good luck. No! He then called the home of another RCS board of education member and launch an avalanche of obscenities and threats which, in fact, later got him arrested later that evening.

Did he stop there? No! Of course not! Far be it from him to have learned that civilized behavior is rewarded, he had to retaliate in the only way a true low-life could: He made a false allegation, with no proof or substantiation whatsoever, and filed a false instrument to have the person he originally verbally abused arrested! (Now what’s that saying about the apple not falling far from the tree? Can you help us out here, Josephine O’Connor?)

It’s A Bad Habit but It’s Yours!

This is an example of the desperation of sick small-town minds, the minds we have to deal with on a daily basis in this area, but especially in that den of Coeymanazis in the double-wide and their friends.

As it turns out, O’Connor will be leaving the RCS board of education in a couple of weeks and has been trying to do some damage–as if she hasn’t done enough already–and where her underhanded coup-d’état to have a board member removed was thwarted, and she was shown to be a liar in her “He called me fat!” idiot performance at the RCS High School, she’s apparently bound and determined to hurt someone before she leaves, and she apparently doesn’t care who it is! She’s even enlisted her father as a willing, albeit a somewhat addled henchman! Now, is this O’Connor charactr the kind of person you want teaching your children? She claims to be a teacher! (We exposed the misrepresentation the “Since I’m a teacher…” statement! She is not teaching anywhere; she is not a teacher.)

It seems that certain of the RCS board of education members are not above treachery to accomplish their evil, and are not above taking advantage of the corruption of the Coeymanazis in the Coeymans Police Department, either.

You have the facts, some of you provided those facts to us, we published them. What are you doing about it? James Latter, Gerald Deluca, Matt Miller (self-proclaimed atheist teacher at the RCS High School and president of the teachers union), Josephine O’Connor, the Pieter B. Coeymans PTO members (RJ DEsposito, Marlene McTigue, Sarah Berchtold Engel, Donna Leput Hommel) who ban parents from their official PTO site, allegedly retaliate against children, and advocate a policy of punishing Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk businesses who don’t support their political agendas (see our report We Asked…You Responded: Thank You!),

How is it that you can’t get the Coeymans Police to investigate a real crime where there is real evidence and real damage but they will respond to a fabricated charge where are no witnesses and no proof,  a he-said-he-said situation, and no probable cause! Why? It’s called retaliation, my friends! Random shots in the dark. They gotta hurt someone, anyone, and they don’t care whom! Sound familiar?

Stay tuned for Part II of this report…we’ll publish details but we need first to obtain the documents.

P.s. If anyone has any information on who owns the Coeymans Police Department, we would like to know that information. The Coeymans Town Administration simply answers “It’s part of the town corporation.”  Some residents don’t believe it’s a town department and may have been sold to a private company…that’s simply a rumor but wouldn’t you think that the Town of Coeymans would know?  And be prepared to answer with a simple Yes or No? Maybe if enough residents ask the question, they might remember Who Owns the Coeymans Police Department?

Special Notice: We make every effort to be truthful, complete, fair, and balanced on this blog; therefore, if you see anything that you know to be false or incorrect, or if you have additional information to clarify any issue, please let us know by e-mailing your information or by leaving a comment. It’s very important to us that we don’t fall into the same category as those whom this blog is intended to expose. Thank you very much in advance for your cooperation and assistance!

    Very difficult to swallow, even more difficult to believe what’s going down in this barbaric, Neanderthal area. The troglodites rule and anyone with any level of intellect, reasoning, or decency is either intimidated and silenced or hounded and arrested. It makes Nazi Germany, pre-“democratic” USSR, Congo, look like preschool!

    I don’t have all the confirmed details yet but when I do, all hell is going to be unleashed. I can foresee lawsuits and prosecutions galore. That’s exactly what they deserve. But can the RCS community afford, survive any more lawsuits because of their teachers and corrupt cops? They play, the majority pays!

    So, who was arrested?

      I don’t have enough confirmed details yet to disclose that information.
      I’ll post as soon as I can get to the sources and see some documents.

        Who knows? It’s certainly negative enought for any of the local rags! It’s certainly not picayune nor pukey fuzzy, but it does have have destructive potential which seems to one of their fortés!

        None of the locals printed the fact that a local recently received the degree of Master of Divinity (after having completed the required 75 graduate credits + 15 additional coursework credits (a total of 90 graduate credits…compared to what 30 for a teaching degree?) at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Rochester. The bishops of Rochester and Albany presided with a rep from the diocese of Syracuse (the bishop of Syracuse was indisposed), with Bishop Matthew Clark presenting the degree. (There were only 3 M.Div. recipients out of about 24 masters recipients!) No, they swept it under their grimey carpet…too positive for the area. I guess they felt the readers couldn’t handle something that positive. But an illegal arrest and the stigma attached? Hell yes! So it’s a bit strange it hasn’t yet appeared. Someone’s gonna get sued, I’ll bet.

        It’s the colleges responsibility to submit a press release to the papers.


      • Fides qua Creditur

        May 29, 2012 at 7:36 pm

        OK. The University has the “responsibility” but if, for verification purposes, the contacts at the university were provided, why wouldn’t the media print the positive information. Presumably, they would verify the facts of any release, whether from an alleged university or graduate. The fact remains, no scandal, no printy.

    Off topic but a worthwhile read nonetheless-bear with me-also note the following from Snopes regarding the veracity of where the speech was given and under what circumstances(“Origins: Although this much-forwarded piece was indeed penned by syndicated radio talk show host Neal Boortz, it was never given by him as a commencement address at a university or college, nor was it written with that intent. Mr. Boortz wrote it as a protest of his never having been invited to deliver a commencement speech, despite decades of hosting radio talk shows. As he says, “The final straw was when Kermit the Frog got an invitation from a Northeast college.” He has delivered the speech on his radio show and used in his 1998 book, The Terrible Truth About Liberals”.

    That being said, here is the speech:

    Texas A&M Commencement Address – The students gave a standing ovation; the faculty were deathly silent!

    Neal Boortz is a Texan, a lawyer, a Texas Aggie (Texas A&M) graduate, and now a nationally syndicated talk show host from Atlanta . His commencement address to the graduates of a recent Texas A&M class is far different from what either the students or the faculty expected. Whether you agree or disagree, his views are certainly thought provoking.

    “I am honored by the invitation to address you on this august occasion. It’s about time. Be warned, however, that I am not here to impress you; you’ll have enough smoke blown up your bloomers today. And you can bet your tassels I’m not here to impress the faculty and administration. You may not like much of what I have to say, and that’s fine. You will remember it though. Especially after about 10 years out there in the real world. This, it goes without saying, does not apply to those of you who will seek your careers and your fortunes as government employees.

    This gowned gaggle behind me is your faculty. You’ve heard the old saying that those who can – do. Those who can’t – teach. That sounds deliciously insensitive. But there is often raw truth in insensitivity, just as you often find feel-good falsehoods and lies in compassion. Say good-bye to your faculty because now you are getting ready to go out there and do. These folks behind me are going to stay right here and teach.

    By the way, just because you are leaving this place with a diploma doesn’t mean the learning is over. When an FAA flight examiner handed me my private pilot’s license many years ago, he said, “Here, this is your ticket to learn.” The same can be said for your diploma. Believe me, the learning has just begun.

    Now, I realize that most of you consider yourselves Liberals. In fact, you are probably very proud of your liberal views. You care so much. You feel so much. You want to help so much. After all, you’re a compassionate and caring person, aren’t you now? Well, isn’t that just so extraordinarily special. Now, at this age, is as good a time as any to be a liberal; as good a time as any to know absolutely everything. You have plenty of time, starting tomorrow, for the truth to set in.

    Over the next few years, as you begin to feel the cold breath of reality down your neck, things are going to start changing pretty fast… Including your own assessment of just how much you really know.

    So here are the first assignments for your initial class in reality: Pay attention to the news, read newspapers, and listen to the words and phrases that proud Liberals use to promote their causes. Then, compare the words of the left to the words and phrases you hear from those evil, heartless, greedy conservatives. From the Left you will hear “I feel.” From the Right you will hear “I think.” From the Liberals you will hear references to groups — The Blacks, the Poor, the Rich, the Disadvantaged, the Less Fortunate. From the Right you will hear references to individuals. On the Left you hear talk of group rights; on the Right, individual rights.

    That about sums it up, really: Liberals feel. Liberals care. They are pack animals whose identity is tied up in group dynamics. Conservatives think — and, setting aside the theocracy crowd, their identity is centered on the individual.

    Liberals feel that their favored groups have enforceable rights to the property and services of productive individuals. Conservatives, I among them I might add, think that individuals have the right to protect their lives and their property from the plunder of the masses.

    In college you developed a group mentality, but if you look closely at your diplomas you will see that they have your individual names on them. Not the name of your school mascot, or of your fraternity or sorority, but your name. Your group identity is going away. Your recognition and appreciation of your individual identity starts now.

    If, by the time you reach the age of 30, you do not consider yourself to be a conservative, rush right back here as quickly as you can and apply for a faculty position. These people will welcome you with open arms. They will welcome you, that is, so long as you haven’t developed an individual identity. Once again you will have to be willing to sign on to the group mentality you embraced during the past four years.

    Something is going to happen soon that is going to really open your eyes. You’re going to actually get a full time job!

    You’re also going to get a lifelong work partner. This partner isn’t going to help you do your job. This partner is just going to sit back and wait for payday. This partner doesn’t want to share in your effort, but in your earnings.

    Your new lifelong partner is actually an agent; an agent representing a strange and diverse group of people; an agent for every teenager with an illegitimate child; an agent for a research scientist who wanted to make some cash answering the age-old question of why monkeys grind their teeth. An agent for some poor demented hippie who considers herself to be a meaningful and talented artist, but who just can’t manage to sell any of her artwork on the open market.

    Your new partner is an agent for every person with limited, if any, job skills, but who wanted a job at City Hall. An agent for tin-horn dictators in fancy military uniforms grasping for American foreign aid. An agent for multi-million dollar companies who want someone else to pay for their overseas advertising. An agent for everybody who wants to use the unimaginable power of this agent’s for their personal enrichment and benefit.

    That agent is our wonderful, caring, compassionate, oppressive government. Believe me, you will be awed by the unimaginable power this agent has. Power that you do not have. A power that no individual has, or will have. This agent has the legal power to use force, deadly force to accomplish its goals.

    You have no choice here. Your new friend is just going to walk up to you, introduce itself rather gruffly, hand you a few forms to fill out, and move right on in. Say hello to your own personal one ton gorilla. It will sleep anywhere it wants to.

    Now, let me tell you, this agent is not cheap. As you become successful it will seize about 40% of everything you earn. And no, I’m sorry, there just isn’t any way you can fire this agent of plunder, and you can’t decrease its share of your income. That power rests with him, not you.

    So, here I am saying negative things to you about government. Well, be clear on this: It is not wrong to distrust government. It is not wrong to fear government. In certain cases it is not even wrong to despise government for government is inherently evil. Yes, a necessary evil, but dangerous nonetheless, somewhat like a drug. Just as a drug that in the proper dosage can save your life, an overdose of government can be fatal.

    Now let’s address a few things that have been crammed into your minds at this university. There are some ideas you need to expunge as soon as possible. These ideas may work well in academic environment, but they fail miserably out there in the real world.

    First is that favorite buzz word of the media and academia: Diversity! You have been taught that the real value of any group of people – be it a social group, an employee group, a management group, whatever – is based on diversity. This is a favored liberal ideal because diversity is based not on an individuals abilities or character, but on a person’s identity and status as a member of a group. Yes, it’s that liberal group identity thing again.

    Within the great diversity movement group identification – be it racial, gender based, or some other minority status – means more than the individuals integrity, character or other qualifications.

    Brace yourself. You are about to move from this academic atmosphere where diversity rules, to a workplace and a culture where individual achievement and excellence actually count. No matter what your professors have taught you over the last four years, you are about to learn that diversity is absolutely no replacement for excellence, ability, and individual hard work. From this day on every single time you hear the word “diversity” you can rest assured that there is someone close by who is determined to rob you of every vestige of individuality you possess.

    We also need to address this thing you seem to have about “rights.” We have witnessed an obscene explosion of so-called “rights” in the last few decades, usually emanating from college campuses.

    You know the mantra: You have the right to a job. The right to a place to live. The right to a living wage. The right to health care. The right to an education. You probably even have your own pet right – the right to a Beemer for instance, or the right to have someone else provide for that child you plan on downloading in a year or so.

    Forget it. Forget those rights! I’ll tell you what your rights are. You have a right to live free, and to the results of 60% -75% of your labor. I’ll also tell you have no right to any portion of the life or labor of another.

    You may, for instance, think that you have a right to health care. After all, President Obama said so, didn’t he? But you cannot receive health-care unless some doctor or health practitioner surrenders some of his time – his life – to you. He may be willing to do this for compensation, but that’s his choice. You have no “right” to his time or property. You have no right to his or any other person’s life or to any portion thereof.

    You may also think you have some “right” to a job; a job with a living wage, whatever that is. Do you mean to tell me that you have a right to force your services on another person, and then the right to demand that this person compensate you with their money? Sorry, forget it. I am sure you would scream if some urban outdoors men (that would be “homeless person” for those of you who don’t want to give these less fortunate people a romantic and adventurous title) came to you and demanded his job and your money.

    The people who have been telling you about all the rights you have are simply exercising one of theirs – the right to be imbeciles. Their being imbeciles didn’t cost anyone else either property or time. It’s their right, and they exercise it brilliantly.

    By the way, did you catch my use of the phrase “less fortunate” a bit ago when I was talking about the urban outdoors men? That phrase is a favorite of the Left. Think about it, and you’ll understand why.

    To imply that one person is homeless, destitute, dirty, drunk, spaced out on drugs, unemployable, and generally miserable because he is “less fortunate” is to imply that a successful person – one with a job, a home and a future – is in that position because he or she was “fortunate.” The dictionary says that fortunate means “having derived good from an unexpected place.” There is nothing unexpected about deriving good from hard work. There is also nothing unexpected about deriving misery from choosing drugs, alcohol, and the street.

    If the Liberal Left can create the common perception that success and failure are simple matters of “fortune” or “luck,” then it is easy to promote and justify their various income redistribution schemes. After all, we are just evening out the odds a little bit. This “success equals luck” idea the liberals like to push is seen everywhere. Former Democratic presidential candidate Richard Gephardt refers to high-achievers as “people who have won life’s lottery.” He wants you to believe they are making the big bucks because they are lucky. It’s not luck, my friends. It’s choice. One of the greatest lessons I ever learned was in a book by Og Mandino, entitled, “The Greatest Secret in the World.” The lesson? Very simple: “Use wisely your power of choice.”

    That bum sitting on a heating grate, smelling like a wharf rat? He’s there by choice. He is there because of the sum total of the choices he has made in his life. This truism is absolutely the hardest thing for some people to accept, especially those who consider themselves to be victims of something or other – victims of discrimination, bad luck, the system, capitalism, whatever. After all, nobody really wants to accept the blame for his or her position in life. Not when it is so much easier to point and say, “Look! He did this to me!” than it is to look into a mirror and say, “You S. O. B.! You did this to me!”

    The key to accepting responsibility for your life is to accept the fact that your choices, every one of them, are leading you inexorably to either success or failure, however you define those terms.

    Some of the choices are obvious: Whether or not to stay in school. Whether or not to get pregnant. Whether or not to hit the bottle. Whether or not to keep this job you hate until you get another better-paying job. Whether or not to save some of your money, or saddle yourself with huge payments for that new car.

    Some of the choices are seemingly insignificant: Whom to go to the movies with. Whose car to ride home in. Whether to watch the tube tonight, or read a book on investing. But, and you can be sure of this, each choice counts. Each choice is a building block – some large, some small. But each one is a part of the structure of your life. If you make the right choices, or if you make more right choices than wrong ones, something absolutely terrible may happen to you. Something unthinkable. You, my friend, could become one of the hated, the evil, the ugly, the feared, the filthy, the successful, the rich.

    The rich basically serve two purposes in this country. First, they provide the investments, the investment capital, and the brains for the formation of new businesses. Businesses that hire people. Businesses that send millions of paychecks home each week to the un-rich.

    Second, the rich are a wonderful object of ridicule, distrust, and hatred. Few things are more valuable to a politician than the envy most Americans feel for the evil rich.

    Envy is a powerful emotion. Even more powerful than the emotional minefield that surrounded Bill Clinton when he reviewed his last batch of White House interns. Politicians use envy to get votes and power. And they keep that power by promising the envious that the envied will be punished: “The rich will pay their fair share of taxes if I have anything to do with it.” The truth is that the top 10% of income earners in this country pays almost 50% of all income taxes collected. I shudder to think what these job producers would be paying if our tax system were any more “fair.”

    You have heard, no doubt, that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Interestingly enough, our government’s own numbers show that many of the poor actually get richer, and that quite a few of the rich actually get poorer. But for the rich who do actually get richer, and the poor who remain poor .. there’s an explanation — a reason. The rich, you see, keep doing the things that make them rich; while the poor keep doing the things that make them poor.

    Speaking of the poor, during your adult life you are going to hear an endless string of politicians bemoaning the plight of the poor. So, you need to know that under our government’s definition of “poor” you can have a $5 million net worth, a $300,000 home and a new $90,000 Mercedes, all completely paid for. You can also have a maid, cook, and valet, and a million in your checking account, and you can still be officially defined by our government as “living in poverty.” Now there’s something you haven’t seen on the evening news.

    How does the government pull this one off? Very simple, really. To determine whether or not some poor soul is “living in poverty,” the government measures one thing — just one thing. Income.

    It doesn’t matter one bit how much you have, how much you own, how many cars you drive or how big they are, whether or not your pool is heated, whether you winter in Aspen and spend the summers in the Bahamas, or how much is in your savings account. It only matters how much income you claim in that particular year. This means that if you take a one-year leave of absence from your high-paying job and decide to live off the money in your savings and checking accounts while you write the next great American novel, the government says you are living in poverty.”

    This isn’t exactly what you had in mind when you heard these gloomy statistics, is it? Do you need more convincing? Try this. The government’s own statistics show that people who are said to be “living in poverty” spend more than $1.50 for each dollar of income they claim. Something is a bit fishy here. Just remember all this the next time Charles Gibson tells you about some hideous new poverty statistics.

    Why has the government concocted this phony poverty scam? Because the government needs an excuse to grow and to expand its social welfare programs, which translates into an expansion of its power. If the government can convince you, in all your compassion, that the number of “poor” is increasing, it will have all the excuse it needs to sway an electorate suffering from the advanced stages of Obsessive-Compulsive Compassion Disorder.

    I’m about to be stoned by the faculty here. They’ve already changed their minds about that honorary degree I was going to get. That’s OK, though. I still have my PhD. in Insensitivity from the Neal Boortz Institute for Insensitivity Training. I learned that, in short, sensitivity sucks. It’s a trap. Think about it – the truth knows no sensitivity. Life can be insensitive. Wallow too much in sensitivity and you’ll be unable to deal with life, or the truth, so get over it.

    Now, before the dean has me shackled and hauled off, I have a few random thoughts.

    * You need to register to vote, unless you are on welfare. If you are living off the efforts of others, please do us the favor of sitting down and shutting up until you are on your own again.

    * When you do vote, your votes for the House and the Senate are more important than your vote for President. The House controls the purse strings, so concentrate your awareness there.

    * Liars cannot be trusted, even when the liar is the President of the country. If someone can’t deal honestly with you, send them packing.

    * Don’t bow to the temptation to use the government as an instrument of plunder. If it is wrong for you to take money from someone else who earned it — to take their money by force for your own needs — then it is certainly just as wrong for you to demand that the government step forward and do this dirty work for you.

    * Don’t look in other people’s pockets. You have no business there. What they earn is theirs. What you earn is yours. Keep it that way. Nobody owes you anything, except to respect your privacy and your rights, and leave you the hell alone.

    * Speaking of earning, the revered 40-hour workweek is for losers. Forty hours should be considered the minimum, not the maximum. You don’t see highly successful people clocking out of the office every afternoon at five. The losers are the ones caught up in that afternoon rush hour. The winners drive home in the dark.

    * Free speech is meant to protect unpopular speech. Popular speech, by definition, needs no protection.

    * Finally (and aren’t you glad to hear that word), as Og Mandino wrote,

    1. Proclaim your rarity. Each of you is a rare and unique human being.

    2. Use wisely your power of choice.

    3. Go the extra mile, drive home in the dark.

    Oh, and put off buying a television set as long as you can. Now, if you have any idea at all what’s good for you, you will get out of here and never come back. Class dismissed”
