November 8, 2016: Sink and Drown or Crash and Burn. America’s Choices

A voice crying out in the wilderness that was once America.

fingers-in-ear

Like a child who doesn’t want to hear!

Do you feel angry, full of hate, aggressive, f****ing scared. Well, you ought to be. You have been brainwashed, duped, scammed, and played for fools by your candidates, their parties, your elected officials, your country. America is no longer great, it’s the world’s entertainment center. America has become a clown convention. And now we’re forced to decide which super-clown is to run our country over the edge, into oblivion. A sneering brute or a political pole dancer.

poledancerThere’s nowhere to hide, people. When a whole country of more than 300 million souls becomes a tool for corporations and their hired guns, our government, those 300 million souls become sheep moving towards the butcher’s blade. Sure, the Hispanics are surging to the polls. The Blacks are killing cops and burning down their own neighborhoods. Whites are doing what they always do: run, hide, point fingers, and hate each other. Obama and his kind, like Hillary, are perverting the human race and giving away the nation right from under us. Trump is a hate monger who is throwing full gas cans on an already out-of-control wild fire. Feel desperate, America? Are you thinking about your Second Amendment rights? Well, when you haven’t used your brains in so long, your only alternative is to grab for a gun. You’ve been turned into mindless, frightened neo-Nazis by your leaders. And you know where all of this is going, don’t you?

The family has taken a fatal long walk off a short pier…We have no families any more.

There’s a saying that “All politics begins in the home.” Well, when the family has taken a fatal long walk off a short pier, there is no home. We have no families any more. We have social media that is killing our humanness and giving you a virtual world that can be shut down any minute. Social media is a very clever way to learn everything about you so that it can be used against you, and you dumb shits love it! Keep looking down at your tiny stupid screens. Don’t look up even when you’re crossing the street. Too bad the driver’s also looking at her screen. Who cares? You’ve become just a number, just another stream of data for Google or Facebook to sell off to a corporation…or your government.

 America has become a joke gone bad, thanks to the Obamas, the Cuomos, the Hillaries, the Trumps, the Kardashians, the talk shows, the social media corporations. It’s gotten to the point where there is only desperation, frustration, anger, rage, and hate. But who ya gonna hate? Yourselves for getting yourselves into this mess? Of course not! You have to finds some “other” to hate. And that’s when we have another Kristallnacht! Remember your history, America: On November 9 to November 10, 1938, in an incident known as “Kristallnacht”, Nazis in Germany torched synagogues, vandalized Jewish homes, schools and businesses and killed close to 100 Jews. Who will be the “Jews” in America in 2016?

Those who are ignorant of history are forced to repeat it.

America is Following the False Prophets

America is Following the False Prophets

We have always urged people to vote because we do not think that voting is merely a right, it’s a sacred duty and responsibility to ourselves, our neighbors, our world. But we urge people to vote when there is a candidate to vote for. We have no candidates in 2016. We have CLOWNS and we are all in a horrible nightmare circus. Where do you turn, America, for a savior from this diabolic situation? Who is going to wake you all up? Are you all DEAD already? Mentally, morally, spiritually? We still urge you to make your choice known. Forget the candidates and write in FAIRPLAY in the write-in space on the ballot for every position! FAIRPLAY! Don’t just vote for the choices that are not choices. Don’t give them numbers! Don’t feed their egos! FAIRPLAY and Justice may not win the elections but if enough of us vote for FAIRPLAY as our write-in, maybe someone, somewhere will wake up and smell the coffee before it burns us.

Write in FAIRPLAY in the write-in space on the ballot for every position!

Let’s get our own numbers and demand FAIRPLAY, justice in our elections. We need to take back our political system. No, we don’t want that dirty, rigged system back at all. We want a new political system and it’s called a Government of the People, for the People, by the People. That “People” is us, not the rhetorical “American people” that has become a cliché of reptilian, slimey, grinning, pointing politicians. NO! We don’t want to become THAT “American People”, we’ve already become THAT “American people,” which translated into reality has become the “American puppets.”

Start with local politics. Just look at your local selections, the selection of the political parties and their local caucuses. Do you know any of those reptiles running for public office? Do you know anything about them? Of course not! You know only what they tell you and that’s steaming bullshit! If you don’t know them and don’t know anything about them WHY? would you let them make life or death decisions for you? That’s crazy!!!

Just look at Coeymans and their town board. They’re axe-wielding egos who Coeymans put in Town Hall and are now burning voters houses down just to show how powerful they are. Their egos matter, not your town’s future, Coeymans! We’ve reported on Jim Youman’s woman-hating brute misconduct. What’s he doing on the Coeymans town board with Phil Crandall, a disgraced village justice? You put that kind of corrupt politician in local office and what do you expect in state and federal office? You got it!

And New Baltimore: Look at what you have in your local government. Dimwits or crooks doing nothing but sucking up tax dollars and stirring up lawsuits that YOU are going to have to either settle or pay for. What’s worse, still, is the local justice joke. Local courts with local scoundrels. New Baltimore has two immoral jokers running for New Baltimore Town Justice, Tom Meacham and Lee Davis. Both are damaged goods and both are asking for you to put the power of the local courts in their dirty hands. DON’T DO IT! Instead of Tom Meacham or Lee Davis, write JUSTICE in the space for write-ins on the ballot. That’s the only way New Baltimore is going to get Justice is by writing JUSTICE in the write-in space on the ballot.

Give them enough rope and the Coeymans Board expose themselves

You know, town of Coeymans residents are like the stripper who bares it all at a biker convention and then complains that she’s been sexually harassed. First of all, the majority of you eligible voters don’t vote! Second of all the voting irregularities and fixing in the town of Coeymans, including the manipulation of candidates, seem to go unnoticed but what would you expect in Albany county, the very heartland of corruption! And then there are the Coeymans voters who take every opportunity to do what’s right and f**k it up. When all is said and done, after totally abusing yourselves and making absolute corndogs of yourselves, you bitch about what’s going on in the town of Coeymans. WTF!!!

Last November you elected a bunch of dipshits for positions in the Albany County legislature (Dick Touchette) and on the Coeymans town board (Crandall, Youmans, Dolan) and no one raised a finger to question how a bunch of former rejects and disgraced public figures could be re-elected to public office! So you swore in the sorry bunch of moral cripples and captains of corruption in January. We just sat back and kept quiet, giving them enough time…and rope…to trip themselves up. And Guess what? The waiting paid off with dividends!

ambush

It didn’t take much time for the corrupt Crandallite board to ambushed Mr Carver Laraway with the help of Coeymans code enforcement.

Same old bullshit and the same names are involved. It’s common knowledge that Crandall and his mob have no love for Laraway and it was only a matter of time before the rats attacked.

There seems to be a pattern in this sort of Coeymans conspiracy: You hand out permits, get someone to rely on the paperwork, and then you go behind their backs and get the State of New York, either the Department of Labor or the DEC to do your dirty work for you.

Conrad managed to get off scot free by burying creeks on Camille Drive

No sooner did the Crandalite mobsters on the Coeymans town board fire Laverne “Larry” Conrad from the position of Coeymans code enforcement officer, which he has held for years, and throughout the entire period he managed to play dirty with whom members of the Coemanazi insiders club had an axe to grind. Conrad managed to get off scot free by burying creeks on Camille Drive but the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation didn’t have much to say about that; seems there was some political wheeling and dealing going on there. But Larry Conrad, sneaky sockpuppet that he was and still is, issued permits to a local business and then went behind their backs to notify the DEC of some sort of cooked up non-compliance. That’s how they work in Coeymans; sneaky ambush.

Wouldn’t you think that when the town of Coeymans issues a permit, it would have all the facts? Just ask Larry Conrad about issuing permits and then screwing the permit holder. So they hire John Cashin, a New Baltimoron, who issues permits and then all of a sudden the Department of Labor shuts down the permit holder. See a pattern here, anyone?

Well, according to an article appearing in the Times Useless on Tuesday, February 9, 2016, “State shuts down Coeymans demolition. Coeymans supervisor says asbestos abatement an issue,” current Coeymans code enforcement officer John Cashin, is playing the same games as Larry Conrad did. This time the victim is Carver Laraway and Larry Conrad, who was hired by Laraway. Here’s what the Times Useless has to say:

shoot-self-in-foot“The state Labor Department on Tuesday ordered Port of Coeymans owner Carver Laraway to stop work on a blighted house he is knocking down on Main Street.

“Coeymans code enforcement officer John Cashin said a representative from the state told him that Carver Construction is not on a list of certified demolition contractors. Supervisor Philip Crandall said the concern has to do with proper asbestos abatement and disposal at the 84 Main St. site, a dilapidated house squeezed between two other buildings.

“The house was already knocked down and the pile of rubble is still at the site.

“A state-issued “notice of violation and order to comply” was left at the site.

Larry Conrad, the town’s former building inspector who now does contract work for Laraway, responded on Laraway’s behalf Tuesday, saying the town still owns the property and that “generally speaking blighted buildings underneath municipalities usually don’t have to go through any of the paperwork. However, there seems to be some questions over how that was handled, I guess, improperly or whatever.”

“Crandall said he consulted David Wukitsch, the town’s attorney, who said Laraway owns the property.”

John Cashin getting cozy with the New York State Department of Labor

Stool pigeon? Snitch? Rat? John Cashin getting cozy with the New York State Department of Labor

So now we have permit-finagling Larry Conrad on contract to Carver Laraway in return for past favors but Larry Conrad is just as ignorant now as he was before! Carver Laraway is just as stupid as Coeymans residents because he hired Coeymans refuse, the discarded former code enforcement officer, Larry Conrad. Now, with Conrad misadvising him or bullshitting him —because that’s what Conrad does best; if you got no brains you gotta use bullshit— and the corrupt local town hall with its snitch in code enforcement, Coeymans lives up to its name Reubenville… Oops! Coeymanaziville.

It’s a well-known fact that Crandall and his cronies, including Rick ” the Dick” Touchette, who was recently elected to the Albany county legislature by local dumbasses, have a vendetta against Carver Laraway. That’s likely one of the reasons they got rid of Larry Conrad, a Carver Laraway supporter. Well, it’s obvious he was cozy with Carver Laraway because no sooner was Conrad terminated from his position with the town of Coeymans than he was hired by Laraway. That wouldn’t be because of some favors that might have been done and cashed in, would it? After all, Carver Laraway and his companies did get some good deals from the town of Coeymans in the past couple of years. But that’s not to say that Carver Laraway and the Carver Companies haven’t done for the town of Coeymans what generations of crooked elected officials have failed to do. At least Carver Laraway —despite the efforts of the likes of Phil Crandall, Tom Dolan, Rick “the Dick” Touchette and thier lackeys— has tried to build up and clean up the dump we know as Coeymans!

Several questions and concerns arise from this incident. —Now that’s apart from the Albany Times Union’s typical indifference to the truth of the facts it prints and the creative writing skills of its staff fiction writers.— First of all, there seems to be a question of who owns the building that was demolished! The fact is that Carver Laraway’s teams were working at the scene for three days, stopping traffic, and partially closing down Main Street in Coeymans hamlet. How can it be that town officials didn’t notice that the crews were tearing down a building and stopping traffic on Main St/River Road? And do you think Carver Laraway would be tearing down a building that he didn’t own?!? Carver Laraway is in the construction/demolition business and has been for years; he’s made millions doing what he does. Do you think for a minute that he’s dumb enough to forget to comply with regulations? Maybe he’s dumb enough to have trusted Coeymans town hall to do things honestly and straightforward, like issuing permits and doing that properly? Yeah, that’s pretty dumb.

Then there’s the question of Why? it took Coeymanazi town supervisor, Phil Crandall, and his New Baltimoron code enforcement officer, John Cashin, three days to note the building was being demolished? And why did Coeymanazi town supervisor Phil Crandall have to consult the town’s scheister lawyer, David Wukitsch, who was fired from his position as New Baltimore town attorney, as to who owned the building?!? And do you think for a minute that the New York State Department of Labor is keeping tabs on what’s going on in Coeymans hamlet, that someone might be demolishing a derelict eyesore property? That is, without the help of a local stool pigeonwith an agenda? Yes, like Larry Conrad was with previous administrations, there’s another rat in town hall who takes orders and does the backstabbing for the crooks at the top. Nothing’s changed in Coeymans.

And another question: Doesn’t the town of Coeymans issue demolition permits? If a demolition permit was issued, wouldn’t the town have to verify ownership? Verify safety precautions? Verify compliance with laws, regulations, codes connected with tearing down buildings and disposing of the rubble? There are a lot of unanswered questions here and most of them point to the corruption of local elected officials, the Crandallites, the Youmansites, the Dolanites and the New Baltimoron lackeys like Cashin! Listen up, Coeymans, these are the jerks you elected to take care of your town! They promised to make your interests a priority! They’re screwing you and you love it!!!!

take it up the ass

All things said and done, you have to admit that the town of Coeymans, especially the hamlet of Coeymans, is a garbage dump, and Carver Laraway has been the only one with the cash and the interest in cleaning it up. But that’s not good enough for The Corrupt Crandallites, Yanker Youmansites, Dumbass Dolanites, and Turkey Touchettites. Crandall and his mob, with their sockpuppet Cashin, don’t give a rat’s ass for cleaning up Coeymans; they have their own agendas and they started with firing Carver Laraway supporter Larry Conrad, installing John Cashin, an import from New Baltimore and the corrupt Susan O’Rorke mob who wasted New Baltimore Town Hall before Nick Dellisanti ousted her and her mob. Cashin was O’Rorke’s live-in partner, some say they were married, some say not. Who cares? All you can say with some reliability is that birds of a feather, in this case vultures, flock together.

So now maybe Carver Laraway will pull out the big guns and blow the Crandall Coeymanazis out of the water.

We’ll have more to say about Laverne Conrad’s mischief while code enforcement officer and the damage he did but for now, let’s just concentrate on watching the crooks, conspirators and corruption specialists, Crandall, Youmans, and Dolan, and see what their next stupidity is going to be.

You asked for it, Coeymans, you put the Corrupt Crandallites, the Yanker Youmanites, the Dumbass Dolanites, and the Turkey Touchettites in town hall; they put the New Baltimoron John Cashin where they can use him best against Carver Laraway, just like former town crook Larry Conrad used his position to benefit his cronies.

You may change the faces in Coeymans town hall but nothing else; you’re all still a bunch of pitiful retards and deserve everything Crandall and his mob have in store for you. We told you so but you had to shoot yourselves in the foot. Good for you, Coeymans!

Coeymans Dump

Coeymans eyesore that Carver Laraway demolished and was cleaning up, until Crandall and his mob put a stop to it.

We really want to see what the Johnson Newspaper Group and the Ravena News Herald do with this story. Is it going to be the same old rag rubbish they usually print as the official Ravena-Coeymans information prostitutes, or will they actually do some real reporting and investigate and report the true facts. Don’t hang waiting but do live in hope!

Stay tuned! You know that dentist who runs that ugly banner add every week in the Johnson Newspaper Group rags, especially in the Ravena News Herald? The Coxsackie Dental Arts and Kurt Froehlich? Well, they offer a scam 15% discount for seniors and veterans. Well, here’s the real story: When you charge up to 3-times (that’s 300%) more than the local competition you can well afford to advertise that you offer a 15% discount if that draws the suckers in. But we have information that Coxsackie Dental Arts and Kurt Froehlich are under investigation for alleged insurance fraud for fraudulent billing practices and for professional misconduct. The story is coming up on this blog very soon, so if you plan to have any dental work done, you may want to read our exposé first. Stay tuned!

 

George Acker, Greene County Independence Party Chairman: “We never forget.”

New Baltimore in Focus or In Our Sights. You Decide.

buck_in_crosshairs

Looks like the New Baltimore Re-pubic-an Incumbents on the town board are in for a scary ride this time. Nick Dellisanti and sidekick Jeff Ruso seem to have done a classic job of pissing off the Independence Party hierarchy and may have lost some much-needed support.

pissed-me-off-you-have

The Independence party supported Nick Dellisanti (R) and his group last election but Dellisanti turned around and screwed with the Independence party candidates when the voting was done. Dellisanti’s suicidal statement: “Republicans appoint Republicans” is turning out to be a poison pill for him and anyone running alongside him.

While the Independence party may have an axe to grind with Dellisanti, the past two years have been really disappointing overall. Dellisanti and his group don’t seem to be able to set any milestone accomplishments. What they do seem to have excelled in, however is distortion, deception and misrepresentation. Seems also that they don’t have the wherewithal to fight battles, within town hall and outside of town hall, because they don’t understand the local culture.

But what can you expect from outsiders, anyway?

The Dellisanti group fails in leadership

New Baltimore town supervisor Nick Dellisanti (R) and town board member Jeff Ruso (R) behaved unethically, using local supporters and disposing of them ungratefully after the voting was done — after all, according to Dellisanti, “Republicans appoint republicans,” (for example: Barbara Finke (R) to be town clerk, Kathy Rundberg (R) to be planning board chair, etc.). We’d like to see appointments by merit and for the good of the community as a whole, not just for party cronies, Mr Dellisanti. But their failings don’t stop there. The Dellisanti group fails in leadership and does not respond affirmatively nor decisively to residents. Moreover, Dellisanti and Ruso have the bizarre tendency to ignore residents’ offers of participation in local town affairs, ignoring correspondence on a number of occasions. Rather than calling them liars outright, Dellisanti and Ruso have their own versions of facts, too. Where’s the transparency, accountability, collaboration we were promised?

On the Democrap side your have wicked-weasel-momma Diane Louis; generally disliked in just about every circle but this wicked-weasel-momma that she is, she has staying power (probably because she eats her young, despite the fact that she’s vegetarian). Very nasty piece of work.

Arlene McKeon is Louis’ sidekick and has an ego to match. You can be certain of one thing: Louis and McKeon have the interests of Louis and McKeon at the top of their priority list.

On the Re-pubic-an side you have another wicked-weasel-momma, Jean Horne, who has a listening problem but likes to give orders. Ever hear the story why we have two ears and one mouth, Jean? Jean is going to have to do some puddle-jumping to keep her feet clear of the doggy-doo piles being left by her darlings Dellisanti, Ruso and others. Horne will also have a problem with New Baltimore highway superintendent Denis Jordan who can’t seem to cooperate with town hall, can’t seem to handle the job he’s expected to do as highway superintendent (more on Hamlet streets in an upcoming article), but has plenty of town-time to take care of special locals — sort of favors for votes. But isn’t that illegal, Mr Dellisanti? You know about it but you haven’t done much about it. Why is that? Jordan has to go!

And then there’s the question of the money being paid to New Baltimore animal control officer Joe Tanner who works full time elsewhere and can’t possibly respond to animal control calls until he get off his other job. That’s why he conjures up undocumented investigations and why his favorite line is “sign a complaint.” Signing a complaint gets him off the hook and the complainant has to do the work. Nice scam for an additional $3-4,000 a year for nothin’. But isn’t that illegal, too, Mr Dellisanti? And what about you, Mr Ruso, isn’t animal control one of your committees? You know about it but haven’t cleaned house yet. Why is that? (But then neither did democraps David Louis or Susan O’Rorke.)

two ears one mouthThe wicked-weasel mommas stay behind the scenes and like to call shots and bark instructions. They like to pick candidates so they have someone to be their sockpuppets. They also like to play dirty behind the scenes and let others take the crap. That’s their wicked-weasel staying power game.

Do Louis and McKeon take the pill?

Do Louis and McKeon take the pill?

dove with olive branchSo what are the wicked-weasel-mommas going to do now that their wicked-weasel candidates can’t expect to run only with democrap or re-pubic-an backing, and they have to get the backing of the next major party, the Independence Party? You guessed it: They grovel and crawl to George Acker, while they wave their insincere, phoney plastic olive branches, begging the Independence party for support and endorsement. But…

George Acker:The Independence party never forgets.”

Well, now that Dellisanti and Ruso have pretty much sewn themselves into a potato sack and are just waiting to be thrown into the Hudson, Arlene McKeon is going to have to do some fancy steppin’. Why? Because the Independence party will be a hard nut to crack for the repubics. Irene Beede, Independence second-in-command, recently told New Baltimore’s Dellisanti that they’ll “need more signatures” to get Independence backing. Translation: You’re dead in the water. Take a walk. According to Independence party chairman George Acker, “The Independence party never forgets.

Then there’s wicked-weasel-mamma Diane Louis who is begging the Independence party to endorse her new sockpuppet, Arthur Fullerton. We’re researching Fullerton but if the adage, “birds of a feather flock together,” proves true, we have some grave concerns. The very fact that Louis is pushing Fullerton already taints him as being cut from the same cloth as a David Louis or a Susan O’Rorke. We’re looking at him in those terms until some really persuasive stuff comes our way.

Who this Arthur Fullerton is is a bit of a mystery but that’s always the case with the democraps and has been the history of any democrap town hall: keep it in the back room. That’s not to say that the re-pubic-ans don’t have their own secret agendas but,  obviously, when Diane Louis sees something in a potential sockpuppet that alone should put the fear of the Lord in all New Baltimore voters from the get-go! Think David Louis. Think Susan O’Rorke. That’s Diane Louis at work.


First of All, We Have to Take Control of Ourselves!

An editorial aside

Voters in New Baltimore and everywhere must stop letting others think for them. Our whole American culture has become a nation of sheeple. Turn on the TV or the radio and listen. You’re being told what to think, what to buy, what you need, what you want, what you should be thinking, what not to think, what you don’t need. They’re even filling your heads with fear and anxiety. What you should be fearing today. Whom you should fear today. Anxiety and fear are very effective methods of controlling populations (remember Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pho Pot?). Another way of keeping populations under control is to isolate them. Isolation is used in prisons to control populations and it’s used on the general population, too! How? You may very well ask! By creating a self-focused society. A ME!-first society. By destroying institutions that unite people, starting with the family, the church, communities. Isolation. Distractions are also very effective: more toys dominating your attention and you won’t notice what’s going on around you. How about keeping people poor? If you’re worried about your bills and survival, you’re likely not to pay very much attention to politics. Right? Very few people today actually think independently; most are simply robots doing what the media tell them to do. Are YOU one of them? Don’t think for a minute that political party leadership in their conventions, caucuses and whatnot have your interests in mind. They first look at electability. Can we get this guy or gal elected? They’re looking for numbers. And they’re looking to put through THEIR agendas. It’s a power trip for them. It’s an ego trip for them. It’s disaster for us!

One lesson we can learn from recent events in Greece, the birthplace of democracy: when governments are screwing you, take to the streets and change it. Good for you, Greece! Democracy is alive and strong in Greece. It’s all but dead in the USA (maybe it never arrived in the USA…maybe it’s all just a big propaganda spoof and you all believe it)!


For the past two decades or so the town of New Baltimore has been merely a feeding ground for incompetent amateurs feeding their inflated egos with hard-working citizens’ votes. We don’t need Harvard M.B.A.s or healthcare administrators to run this town. We don’t need democraps or re-pubic-ans either, since at this level they are DINOs (democrats in name only) or RINOs (republicans in name only) and they’ll change their party affiliations in a flash if it serves their perverse ambitions. And we don’t need political parties or widked-weasel-mommas to select their cronies and tell us whom we are going to have to vote for. Enough already! We don’t need any more outsider amateurs who want a town they can play with. What we need is some dedicated, community-oriented, sincere, honest people who can respect the local culture and respond to local needs and concerns, while having the balls to take a stand and to tell the downstaters and carpetbaggers that this town of New Baltimore belongs to the people of New Baltimore who make their homes here. What we do need is for native New Baltimorans to wake up and take New Baltimore back. We need neighbors and friends to start running the town and tell the cliques and egomaniacs to take a hike.

Anyone who arrogantly tells another citizen resident that his or her chances of working for the good of this town depends on his or her party affiliation and not on his or her merit; in other words, that “Republicans appoint republicans” does not deserve to be in public office — here or anywhere else.

Fullerton, Dellisanti, Ruso, etc., Will you survive?

Fullerton, Dellisanti, Ruso, etc., Will you survive?

Any candidate running in this town of New Baltimore from this point on will have to pass the acid test, will go through a baptism of fire, before he or she makes it to the ballot. We call upon all citizen residents of New Baltimore to start taking responsibility for this town and to join us in telling Diane Louis, Arlene McKeon, Nick Dellisanti, Jeff Ruso and anyone else that this town is still a democracy and is not a party-political machine shop. Any candidate’s priority must and will be the single common good of the community of New Baltimore and nothing less than that.

We’ll be reporting more on this issue as we move closer to the campaigns. We’ll also keep our ears to the ground and pick up any vibes, do our research, collect our facts and report responsibly to the community. We also need to inform the community of New Baltimore town superintendent of highways, Denis Jordan, and his attempt to stay in office to maximize the damage he can do to the town while banking his pension. There’s an alternative brewing that may be the town’s chance to save itself. Stay tuned!

We recently published an email sent by Nancy Warner to a local resident unlawfully denying him his rights to access information under the New York State Freedom of Information Law, and telling him he’s “wasting taxpayer money.” We pointed out in our article that Warner was way out of line and was the last one who should be telling anyone they’re wasting taxpayer money. Maybe Warner feels that stealing taxpayer money is better than wasting it, after all Nancy Warner knows how to do both. But back to the subject of this article:

RAVENA RESIDENT SLAMS NANCY WARNER

ouch_gotcha

Ravena Resident Pokes Nancy Warner in the Eye. OUCH!

Far from being a trustee, Nancy Warner should be a “Trustless” but you can trust Warner to grab any moment to act like she’s mayor of Ravena. She’s not and this resident tells her so. Read on…

Dear Trustee Warner:

Thank you for your kind but inappropriate email response of 4/29/15. While you are entitled to your personal opinions, you would be well advised to avoid abrogating authorities to yourself that are not yours to exercise. You do not have the implied or explicit authority in your present purview to respond to or to deliberate unilaterally and independently of the Village Board on matters concerning the instant subject matter. Furthermore, you are egregiously overreaching any implicit or explicit authorities when you attempt to limit or to deny me the rights clearly established under the provisions of the New York State Pubic Officers Law (a.k.a. the NYS Freedom of Information Law or “F.O.I.L.”) and any such attempt, implicit or worse still explicit, as represented by your e-mail, may expose you and the Village of Ravena to investigation or even prosecution. Need I remind you at this point of the current investigation relating to the Village Board’s unlawful abuse of power in the [name redacted but it concerns the Ravena Planning Board] case? You need to learn to put a lid on it and to control your megalomaniac ego, Ms. Warner.

At the risk of repeating myself, you had no business whatsoever and no authority whatsoever to arrogantly assume a position not yours by responding unilaterally and without mandate to an inquiry not in your purview. You have repeatedly failed to provide any documentation on how my building went from four to five units. You have never provided documentation with my signature (since none exists), I have repeatedly questioned how and when I went to from four to five units, which is your (Village of Ravena) basis for my water/sewer billing. One has to wonder who you think you are. Better still, one has to remind you who you are; you tend to forget. You are an elected officer of the Village of Ravena and a servant of the residents and community of Ravena. You are nothing more but may be much less, depending on one’s perspective.

You were way out of line in your response to my email. (I was simply requesting who and when will the village attorney contact me from a previous e-mail sent from the village to me six weeks ago; in short a follow up).   The Mayor, and Mr. Mahler and Mr. Coye are the trustees overseeing the water/sewer/building departments, and the zoning/planning  boards respectively.  When it is time to discuss any issue, I will contact them first. Obviously, you are not on those committees or boards and accordingly you have no business injecting yourself into matters concerning them unless explicitly invited to do so; you have not been so invited to my knowledge.

You appear to need a reminder that village elected officers and village staff have obligations and duties to the public under their oaths of office. This is undisputed fact and has been laid down clearly in town and village law, public officers law, administrative law, and yes, in criminal law.  As you are aware, “misprision”  requires one to report crime or a violation of law; you, especially as a public servant, are obligated to report unlawful or illegal activity or or risk prosecution yourself, even if that illegal or unlawful activity is your own. I realize that’s a very regrettable situation you may find yourself in but you yourself are to blame. Your history and record of abuse of office and abuse of citizens’ protected rights is long and documented. You would be well advised to cease and desist with immediate effect your unlawful interference and obstruction of other village employees in their diligent, even if it is somewhat clumsy, execution of their duties and responsibilities under the law. In other words, Ms. Warner, back off and butt out. Should I have an issue with village staff, I shall take it up with them on an informal amicable basis; as I have for the past 25 years.  Should that approach fail,  I shall address and discuss any such issues with the Chief Executive Officer of the Village of Ravena, the Mayor, who I believe continues to be Mr. William Misuraca, not YOU.

Should you have any questions regarding this communication, please do not hesitate to appropriately, that is, within the limits of your authority, to contact me. I shall be pleased to discuss anything you may find difficult to understand or impossible to grasp; simply send me a courteous, civil e-mail.

In the meantime, please accept my sincere appreciation of your most recent communication; I indeed appreciate it for what it is.

[Name withheld by request]

OUCH!!! You been had, Nancy Warner!!!

And BRAVO for you, Ravena resident and taxpayer!!! More of your neighbors should follow your example. Their lives might improve dramatically!

Bravo for You! Sock It to her The Editor

We might be about to bust the Ravena Incest Club wide open!

We’re not done yet with the scandal behind the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and some of the unlawful finagling that went on using Ravena taxpayer money, public funds. We have a village of Ravena document that appears to split the village payment of $40,000 for the used fitness equipment for Cathy DELUCA’s pigpen. It appears that one check was made out to the NATIONAL BANK OF COXSACKIE in the amount of $18,000.00 and the other check was made out to Bob Fisk’s wife/concubine, Deborah FARHRBACH.  But the Bill of Sale signed by Deborah FAHRBACH and notarized by Michael Biscone’s secretary, Sharon E. DEWSBURY, clearly states that Fahrbach and Fisk are the “legal owners of the equipment” and that there are “no liens or encumbrances” on the equipment. If all that is true and Deborah FAHRBACH wasn’t perjuring herself by making a false oath, something simply doesn’t add up here. Question is: if . was the seller of the used fitness equipment, why did two checks have to be made out? One was a check made out to the National Bank of Coxsackie and the other to Fahrbach? Michael BISCONE is the attorney for National Bank of Coxsackie (Ravena) and acts also as Ravena village attorney. Was Michael BISCONE Bob Fisk’s or Fahrbach’s attorney, too? Is that why Biscone’s secretary notarized the Bill of Sale for the used equipment? Could it be that Robert FISK (a Persico on his mother’s side) owed the NATIONAL BANK OF COXSACKIE a note on the equipment the bank manager — at the time, Donna BISCONE —, would look bad if there were a bad debt? If that were so, then Fahrbach did perjure herself when she stated that Fahrbach and Fisk were the legal owners and that there were no liens or encumbrances on the equipment. What if Fisk had IRS tax liens in 2000 and bad credit, and had to get out from and under what was owed? So they went to the “cookie jar” (Ravena taxpayers money) to get some honey-money? So  do we have the PERSICO and BISCONE clans working together. Former mayor John T. BRUNO was hot on getting the RCS Community Library out of the building and in correspondence notes that his cousin, Josephine BRUNO (Prudential Realty), was brokering the deal. and was pushing to get the village of Ravena to get the equipment out of the building on 172 Main Street, Ravena. Nancy WARNER is a BISCONE, in addition to Donna BISCONE (retired); a National Bank of Coxsackie manager/director, Donald PERSICO, is apparently one of the PERSICO clan. Add Michael BISCONE, who is attorney for the village of Ravena AND for the National Bank of Coxsackie, and may have represented Bob FISK, too. But Fisk is related through is mother to the Persicos of Ravena, too. Looks like we might be on to something here. This is HOT! So stay tuned! We might be about to bust the Ravena Incest Club wide open! (Don’t relax yet, Jerry PERRINE, Larry CONRAD. We’re not done with you yet, either.)

Ravena gives Clerk-Treasurer Private Lessons @ $310/hour!!!

The Village of Ravena, that is, Nancy Warner, has hired an Albany accounting consulting firm, SaxBST, to provide Quickbooks training to Ravena Clerk-Treasurer Annette  Demitraszek paying the consultant doing the training, Lynda P. Smith, $175.00/hour and the other consultant, a SaxBST partner, Willard G. Reynolds, $310.00/hour. Question is: Why isn’t the village of Ravena using some of the less expensive training available? Question is: Why does the village of Ravena have to spend $18,000 for the first year fee to have SaxBST train Demitraszek when someone already with the knowledge should have been hired? Question is: Why hasn’t Nancy Warner, who claims to have 30 years in Ravena village hall training her so-called clerk-treasurers? Question is: If Nancy Warner is so damned concerned about “wasting taxpayer dollars” why is she hiring SaxBST at the rate of $300.00/hour?

Village of Ravena Accounting Principal

Village of Ravena Accounting Principle

Why is Ravena Paying $310.00/hour or $18,000 a Year to Provide Private Lessons for the Clerk-Treasurer?

Nancy Warner, the Ravena village trustee, who is so concerned about wasting taxpayer money when responding to residents’ requests or problems, despite her gung-ho support of the money pit Ravena Health and Fitness Center that devoured more than $200,000 of taxpayer money, while paying fitness-center virus Cathy Deluca more than $60,000 of that money to run yet another fitness center into oblivion, has done it again!

We have received paperwork that shows that Nancy Warner has contracted an outside consultant firm to train her two sockpuppets, Annette Demitraszek and Kristine Biernacki, how to use  Quickbooks accounting software. That’s all well and good but here’s where it gets to be a scandal:

Nancy Warner and her cronies on the Ravena village board headed by Ravena mayor Bill “Mouse” Misuraca, Joel Coye, Keith Mahler and Bill Bailey, are spending what looks like $18,000 at a rate of $300.00/hour to the consultant firm to train the gals on site at the Ravena Village Hall.

We’re not only questioning the wisdom and the logic behind spending that kind of money on consultant fees, we’ve got an even better question for Nancy Warner: If you’ve been on board at Ravena village hall for more than 30 years, earlier as village clerk and then as village trustee, this “training” should have been done way back then. What this means is that until now, village accounting and bookkeeping was not being done correctly (the Comptroller’s audits have already pointed this fact out on several occasions). Why is it that village staff are being trained now and at such great cost to taxpayers? Accounting practices and laws don’t change over night; if the state does change practices and laws for villages and towns, they send out bulletins and advisories announcing the pending changes. Where was Ravena village administration when all of this was happening, Nancy? Bill Bailey? Were you asleep on watch? Wasn’t this your responsibility, Nancy Warner?

Yeah! Nancy. That's what we thought your answer would be!

Yeah! Nancy. That’s what we thought your answer would be!

Now, we know you’re just dying to know where the money for this irresponsible and insane spending spree is coming from, so we’d like to tell you.

The firm providing the training is the Albany accounting, taxation, and advisory firm, SaxBST, located on Computer Drive. They don’t necessarily provide “training” but are providing their services as consultants (consultants are astronomically more expensive than mere “trainers”). One of the partners, Willard J. Reynolds, who is providing “services” bills at the rate of $310.00/hour. The other “trainer”, Lynda P. Smith, who isn’t even listed on the SaxBST site, bills at a rate of $170.00/hour.
According to the papers we have received, per a document stamped “Received” by the “Town Clerk” on April 24, 2015, the Village of Ravena was billed $5,550.00 on November 30, 2014 for a meeting with “the mayor, 2 board members, Annette.” That invoice shows the proposed first year fee of $18,000 (less the $5,550 billed, leaving a balance of $12,450). The village of Ravena was billed $2,867.00 on December 31, 2014 for “meetings with Annette” and “in-office discussions and research” by Smith (15 hours) and Reynolds (3/4 of an hour). The balance of the first year fee on December 31, 2014 was $9,583.00. We can’t seem to locate the line item for these expenses in the 2015-16 Ravena Village Budget, so where’s the balance supposed to coming from?

Back to where the money was coming from to pay this extravagance. The SaxBST invoice for $5550.00 was vouchered and processed for payment on or around December 15, 2014. The SaxBST invoice for $2867.00 was received by the Village of Ravena on January 12, 2006, and approved for payment.

So where is the village of Ravena, Nancy Warner, finding the cash to pay for all of this. Well, we didn’t have to look far. All we had to do is look on the payment vouchers and then at the line items in the Village of Ravena budget, and match them up. You see, Nancy Warner and the village of Ravena board are tapping several other accounts to get their hands on the money. For example, to pay the $5550.00 they used $3885.00 from line item A1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), $832.00 from line item F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), and $832.00 from line item G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services). To pay the $2867.00 they used $2006.90 from line item A1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), $430.00 from line item F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), and $430.00 from line item G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services). They just barely made it in the 2014-15 budget but it doesn’t appear that they will in the 2015-16 budget because two of the line items: F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services) and G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services) don’t appear in that budget. So our question is: Where are they going to get the balance of more than $9,000 to cover the outstanding balance for the year’s SaxBST fees?

Now get this: Nancy Warner is the contact person shown on the correspondence from SaxBST. Annette Demitraszek, the assistant clerk-treasurer, a Bruno appointee and a Misuraca re-appointee, official Nancy-Warner-sockpuppet, is the village employee, the “authorized official” who is certifying and approving the expenditure. Now isn’t that delicious: Nancy Warner, who is so concerned about wasting taxpayer dollars, is having her cronies privately trained on site, on village time by consultants billing at the rate of $175/h and $310/hour!!! And guess who is certifying and approving the payment of the fat invoices? None other than the very person receiving the training and benefits: Annette Demitraszek, village of Ravena clerk-treasurer! Anybody smell a rat yet?

About $20 from Amazon or Barnes&Noble!

About $20 from Amazon or Barnes&Noble!

So we did a little research on Quickbooks training. You can get a 2-day mastery course for $499.00  and do it on line with Intuit, who has trained more than 2 million government and business clients and for $999.99 you can become a Quickbooks VIP member and enjoy extended benefits . We won’t go into the benefits of these programs but will mention that local community colleges have ongoing courses for Quickbooks in their continuing education programs. Why didn’t the dumbasses in Ravena village hall consider any of these options? Because it’s easier to sit on their fat asses in village hall and spend Ravena taxpayer’s dollars. That’s why.

Better still, buy the Quickbooks for Dummies — if Demitrazek and the Ravena village board can qualify as dumbasses, they’ll ace the dummies course —, available from Amazon or Barnes&Noble for the outrageous price of $20.00. Now why didn’t Nancy Warner think of that?

We’d also like to speculate that there’s something in this wild spending to benefit someone in village hall. Why would Ravena’s elected officials be so irresponsible and expose themselves to such scandalous ridicule if they weren’t getting something big in return. What’s in it for Nancy Warner, we’d like to ask? It just wouldn’t make sense being so irresponsible so openly if they weren’t getting something considerable in return. Kickbacks? Favors? We do know that Annette Demitraszek is walking away with knowledge obtained in private lessons by some pretty pricey tutors, and she’s doing it on your tab. It’ll look good on her résumé when she goes job hunting when Ravena taxpayers demand she be fired, and Nancy Warner’s brought up on charges.

Now don’t you think you should be attending village of Ravena village board meetings and asking some questions about how your money is being spent?

New York State Police: Joining Police-State Tactics, Eroding Public Trust; Biased Law-Enforcement!

What is the New York State Police in Greene/Columbia County Trying to Prove? That they’re as politically and socially biased as the worst of municipal law enforcement?

Well, if that’s what they’re out to prove, they’re well on their way to reaching their ill-conceived goals!

Think twice when you see these lights! They may not be there to "serve and to protect" but may be there simply to make a political statement!

Think twice when you see these lights! They may not be there to “serve and to protect” but may be there simply to make a political statement!

Supporting local business and economy, on the way to Rhinebeck, to participate in a Restaurant Week meal with 3 other couples at Terrapin, we curiously noted the unusual number of NYS police vehicles making stops of motorists. We casually remarked: “They must have a quota to fill.” And drove on confident that we, as law-abiding, good citizens would not have to go through such an ordeal. A reader writes to us on the evening of Friday, March 13, 2014, after returning from a harmless social event with professional co-workers:

“How  wrong we were! Returning to Albany county at about 10:45, approaching the Rip van Winkel bridge, we noticed a sandwich board displayed on the approach to the bridge: “Safety Restraint Check Ahead”, and figured it was just another seat-belt check. We remarked how stupid such a thing is to waste State Police personnel and resources checking seat belts at such a time. It soon became clear what was going on. It was a  total lie. But why do the State Police have to resort to such stupid, low, tactics against a majority of law-abiding, social citizens, when there’s so much obvious, conspicuous crime going on? Answer: Easy Pickin’s.
“Why go after criminal minorities in the wake of Fergusen and in the climate of Black history month when there are easy prey in the form of middle class white Americans out there who won’t riot and can’t claim “profiling” when they’re stopped and harassed. The U.S. Attorney General, a Black appointee under a Black president, issues a scathing critical report against the law enforcement officers of Fergusen after the shooting of an “unarmed black man” – and then two white cops are shot from ambush while monitoring [ongoing] protests in Ferugusen, and the U.S. Attorney General, Black hypocrite that he is, denounces the shootings. Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney General, the so-called chief law-enforcement officer in the USA, is a reverse racist! On the one hand he throws his own law-enforcement officers under the bus and then cries “Foul” when his own people engage in racist shootings of white police officers! How low have we become, America?!? How hypocritical have we become, America?!? It it had been a white person shooting, it would have been called “Racist!!!” If it had been an Arab, it would have been called, “Terrorist!!!” But it was a shooting of white police officers monitoring BLACK demonstrators…What do we call that? You tell us!!!
Stopped,asked whether the driver had had anything to drink that evening. Driver responds 1 beer. Pull over to the side there, I want to talk to you some more.
“Where are you coming from?  Where are you going?” Directing his attention to the passenger: “What have YOU had to drink?” Well the stupid, ignorant trooper had no idea what he was asking or whom he was asking and the  passenger simply responded: “Why are you asking me that? I’m not driving. Your question is totally irrelevant. What’s your problem? [Editor’s Note:  According to the personal communication because the situation was so bizarre, the passenger has started his voice recorder going on by this time!]”
As if to regain his composure and self-respect the trooper asks the driver to get out of the car and asks him to do all sorts of stupid things. Why stupid? Because the man was visibly 200% sober, no indication of impairment!!! This was clearly an instance of intimidation, harassment. Asked for the driver’s licence, which was produced and the trooper puts the licence in his back pocket! And then he continues to harass the driver. No radio check. No registration check. No insurance check! The trooper puts the licence in his back pocket! Is this harassment or real law enforcement? Passive intimidation? How many of our neighbors, fellow citizens have experienced this sort of police-state conduct?”

Shame on the NYS Police in Greene /Columbia County NY. Your're Disappointments!

Shame on the NYS Police
in Greene /Columbia County NY. You’re real Disappointments!<

Well, dear readers, there is no one out there who is more law-enforcement friendly, more supportive of our law-enforcement officers, and no one more supportive of law, liberty and justice than we are. But this is clearly an abuse of police authority. We fully support law enforcement in their efforts to serve and protect our communities by being present, observing, assisting, but NOT BY HARASSING and INTIMIDATING law-abiding, White citizens going about their routine social activities. And when law-enforcement does so under false pretenses and in obvious non-compliance with established protocols we have to speak out and demand an explanation.

We condemn such arbitrary, indifferent, discriminatory conduct on the part of our publicly funded law enforcement personnel. It’s the socially and politically responsible, hard-working, responsible and ethical minority who pays for law enforcement and who supports local businesses and institutions. It seems it’s exactly these very same individuals who are targeted by the very law enforcement and government they support!

Dishonored, DisappointmentsUntil Further Notice

Dishonored, Disappointments
Until Further Notice

The check-point at the Rip van Winkel bridge on March 13, 2015, at about 10:45 was a travesty of police power. It was totally inappropriate and abusive. It undermined our faith and trust, our confidence in our law enforcement personnel. It defeated any claimed law enforcement positive effects.

We made inquiries and it seems the New York State Police were out in force and stopping people even during the afternoon. The pretense: St Pat’s day! So the New York State Police are out stopping people on March 13th in preparation for March 17th. If only they were that well-prepared to enforce day-to-day laws on our road we’d all feel a lot safer. Now doesn’t that get your Irish up? Happy St Pat’s day…and watch out for the party-poopers!

shamrockShame on you! New York State Police! Your personnel on the Rip Van Winkel bridge tonite eroded any support and confidence we may have had in you! May be this country is moving in the direction of the totalitarian police state we’ve been warning against over the past couple of years. Beware, sheeple, your silence will be your undoing!

We, the People, are guaranteed control under the Constitution. It’s time we took responsibility for what’s going on in this community, this country and it’s time we take control. We’re not the criminals and we should not be made to feel we are. We know who the criminals are and when our law enforcement and government start to go astray, it’s time to start doing what the Blacks have been and still are doing: taking control! Get with the Constitution, people. Stop this downward spiral of depravity NOW!

Have you had any experience with local or state police recently? Tell us about it.
