What you hear or see, or know can land you in Jail! 18 USC § 4 – Misprision of Felony

 


This just in: We’ve just confirmed the report from a reader that the Ravena News Herald just might be getting things right, even seeing the light. See the front-page report on lawsuits against the Village of Ravena, Town of Coeymans, and the Coeymans Police Department in the September 26, 2013 issue of the Ravena News Herald. Thank you, News Herald!


If You’re Working For the Village of Ravena, the Town of Coeymans, the Town of New Baltimore, or Particularly If You are Employed by the Coeymans Police Department

After Notices of Claims Have Been Served for Obstruction of Justice, Official Misconduct, Negligent Hiring and Retention, Civil Rights Violations, this is Just What the Coeymans Police Department and the Village of Ravena Needed!

18 USC § 4 - Misprision of Felony A Federal Law Just for the Coeymans PD

18 USC § 4 – Misprision of Felony
A Federal Law Just for the Coeymans PD

This Blog Is Dedicated to You!

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Federal Prosecutors Are Showing a Special Interest in the Federal Law called 18 USC §4, Misprision of Felony. And Recent Prosecutions Show Just How Interested, Especially When It Comes to Public Officials and Law Enforcement Personnel.Misprision of felony is defined by the federal law as:

18 USC § 4 – Misprision of Felony. Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

In plain language misprision of felony says that anyone can be responsible for a crime fbicommitted by another person by making a contribution by his own free will. But even by not making a physical contribution or assisting in the commission of a crime, a person can commit a crime of his or her own with respect to another person’s crime. How? By standing by and not preventing the crime using the means available to him or her. Even if the crime has already been committed in someone’s absence and he/she becomes aware of the crime and does not report it to the authorities, the law holds him or her to be guilty of a breach of duty to the community and to the government, and law punishes that breach.

In other words, if you know a crime has been committed and you do not report the crime to the authorities to bring the criminal to justice, you are guilty of misprision and can be punished yourself.

Launch that investigation and examine police chief Darlington and every police officer and employee of the Coeymans Police department.

It’s essential that the town of Coeymans supervisor and town board launch an immediate internal investigation to ensure that no one in the Coeymans police department knows of criminality in the department or that no on is involved in criminality. It’s the job of the Coeymans town board members to launch that investigation and examine police chief Darlington and every police officer and employee of the department. It’s the duty of town supervisor Flach ensure that no member of the town board is an accessory or involved in an cover-up or criminality and the town board must take a careful look at the supervisor,  too. The judges on the town court should be especially scrutinized for compliance with all aspects of the Judicial Law and the Code of Judicial Ethics of the New York State Unified Court System. If you don’t clean your own house, the FBI will do it for you, it seems.

This goes for the Ravena-Coeymans Central School District officers, employees, administrators, teachers. Even if there’s no felony activity, which we don’t rule out without appropriate investigation, you’re still liable if you see, hear, or know of misconduct or criminal activity and don’t report it or prevent it! We’re on to something here and we’ll use it to the max. Dr Allen McCartney needs to lauch his own internal investigations before someone else does—and you know who will.

The village of Ravena is a completely other story. The Ravena village government is so corrupt and far gone they might as well all surrender to the Sheriff. There’s absolutely no one in the Ravena village government who has the intelligence, the integrity, the ethics to point a finger at anyone else there. They’re all in the same stew. Any investigation of the village of Ravena has to come from the outside, and we don’t mean toothless audits and reports that come out of the New York State Comptroller’s office and take a year to write! We mean a SERIOUS investigation that will include audits of every aspect of Ravena mis-government.

 The FBI actively pursues this law in a wide variety of cases involving private citizens, public servants and law enforcement personnel. How do you feel Coeymans or Albany would fare if the FBI were to audit their cases and disposition of cases.

Coeymans' p.c. Darlington. How involved is he?

Coeymans’ p.c. Darlington.
How involved is he?

Do you think that Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca or DoDo cop Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington would or could avoid a fine and/or jail time? We don’t think so. At least Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca would probably stand a 110% of doing time. But what about the other law enforcement officers on the Coeymans Police Department or the other employees like the dispatchers or Darlington’s “confidential” secretary, Dawn LaMountain. They see and hear, don’t they? Yes, we know, their hearing and seeing tends to be a bit selective but the FBI has ways of sorting out the selectivity. Don’t you think it’s time for some digging around in the Coeymans Police Department, on the Coeymans town board? And let’s not forget our dear little gremlins in Ravena village hall, those little crooked fixtures who have been playing their dirty little games for more than 30 years at least. And the town of New Baltimore Elites Club who hold their regular meetings in the New Baltimore Town Hall, stay tuned for the revelations about that tribe.

Custody of evidence seems to be pretty shoddy there, too. What happens during all these so-called “drug raids,” even the botched up ones (almost all of them)? With the slipshod chain of custody procedures in the Coeymans Police Department it’s pretty easy for some of the whacky-weed or other stuff to avoid inventory or simply disappear. From where we’re observing it seems the fox watching the chickens!

We get regular updates from the FBI on investigations, prosecutions, and sentencing. Here’s a recent blurb on a police officer who got nabbed:

Coeymans PD's Gerald Deluca "Dirty Hands Jerry"

Coeymans PD’s Gerald Deluca
“Dirty Hands Jerry”

DALLAS—Brent Dickey, 42, a former officer with the Alvarado, Texas Police Department, appeared in federal court today and pleaded guilty to an Information charging one count of misprision of a felony. He faces a maximum statutory penalty of three years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine. Dickey, a resident of Burleson, Texas, will remain on bond pending sentencing, which is set for January 8, 2014, before U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade. Today’s announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.

According to documents filed in the case, in February 2010, Dickey was assigned to the Stop The Offender Program-Special Crimes Unit (STOP-SCU), a Johnson County law enforcement task force that investigated drug crimes occurring in the county. Dickey knew that a particular individual, Person A, was unlawfully distributing anabolic steroids, and he failed to make this felony known to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, such as a federal grand jury or an FBI agent.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Searching the FBI site brings up dozens of cases where persons are prosecuted for having knowledge of a crime but doing nothing about it. It far more serious when it happens in public office, especially in law enforcement, and it’s apparently happening Guess where? Yup! Right under your noses.

If you want to read more about the FBI’s investigations and prosecutions of the federal misprision law click on the links below:

We’ve got just about every crime in the book going on right here, right under your noses: Violation of protected rights, violations of civil rights, obstruction of justice, misuse of public office.

You name it, we’ll find it.

We'll let the dogs out on ya! We gonna gitcha!

We’ll let the dogs out on ya!
We gonna gitcha!

Do you think that’s why the village of Ravena and the Coeymans Police Department are so uncooperative when you ask for information? Think twice when they tell you your request is ready and check it twice because it’s likely to be a ton of paper but no information, especially if it’s coming out of the Ravena village offices or from the Coeymans Police Department.

Mayor B'runo's Biological Weapon for Infecting Coeymans Martin "Marty" Case

Mayor Bruno’s Biological Weapon for Infecting Coeymans
Martin “Marty” Case

And do you think it’s going to get any better if Ravena mayor John Bruno’s lackeys like Marty Case (sitting member of the Ravena village board) or any more relatives of Coeymans police department employees get hired to work in the Coeymans PD, or if Coeymans police chief’s good girlie friend, Michelle Maddige, gets into the Coeymans Clerk’s office? By the way, Ms Maddige hasn’t got a lick of experience or education that would qualify her for the position of town Clerk, how is it she’s even on the ballot? Most candidates for the elected office of Town Clerk have at least worked in the Clerk’s office for 5-10 years before they even think about being qualified to run! Think there’s something fishy going on? Especially after they rushed to get Maddige on the Coeymans planning board almost overnight so they could say in her candidate’s propaganda that she is on a Coeymans board, at least. That’s a pretty dirty trick, don’t you think so?

Kerry Thompson, too, would never have gotten away with what he does in Coeymans if he tried it on Craig Apple’s watch. Say, Kerry, isn’t your son one of the new Coeymans police trainees? But we’re going to do a special issue on Incest is Best in Coeymans, especially in the Coeymans PD.

Good news is that the good news is getting out there and the proof is that the incumbents and their lackeys got their arses kicked in the primaries. Thank you voters! Thank you for waking up and smelling the burnt coffee!

Does a number on your nose.

Does a number on your nose.

If these cases are brought in federal court there will be no saving them. Albany County DA has pissed off at least 3 federal judges and wouldn’t be able to save his own Black ass let alone be able to get special favors or deals for his white-trash honky tools in Coeymans.

So Coeymans police officers and employees, how long are you going to keep your mouths shut about what you see and hear in the Coeymanazi Pork Dive called the Coeymans Police Department? Are you willing to take the risk and the rap for Deluca and Darlington and their cronies?

Play dat card for yo daddy!

Play dat card for yo daddy!

That sort of criminal activity would be highly unlikely on Craig Apple’s, Albany County Sheriff, or Greg Sealy’s, Greene County Sheriff, nor on Terry Wilhelm’s, Greene County DA, watch. Why, because they’re pro’s who run professional teams. Unlike the Caver-in-Chief, Barak “Oreo” Obama, who was expressed to the White House by the democrats flashing the race ticket on the soul-train, or Albany County DA P. David Soares, who took the same soul-train using the same race ticket, Apple, Sealy, and Wilhelm ran and won on their merits without the backroom deals brewed in Albany by the Dem Machine.

And speaking of sheriffs. This one’s for Joan and Robert Ross of New Baltimore, NY: We hear you’ve been naughty again and the Greene County Sheriff has been trying to contact you. We know you were in town because we saw you but the sheriff’s deputy says you’re not answering your door when he came by three different times. Why is that, Joan, Robbie? Fess up and answer your door when the deputy knocks, he’s not going to give up, you know. We’re going to dedicate a special issue to Joan Ross’ addiction to this blog and her cut-and-paste emails. Seem’s Joanie is our best promoter but as usual for the wrong reasons. So, Joan and Robbie, you can run but you can’t hide. Just answer the door and take your medicine.

Criminal Complaint: Catherine M. Deluca a.k.a. Cathy Deluca, Claude A. Wheeles, Ravena Health and Fitness Center

Have the Lies and Criminal Conduct Caught up with Her?

Has She Involved an Innocent Bystander?

We Have the Paperwork and an Incriminating Bit of Evidence. Has the Teflon-Tootsie Lost Her Non-Stick Coating? Looks Like Falsely Reporting an Incident to Law Enforcement and Conspiracy Might be on the Menu for Ravena Health and Fitness Center “Director” Cathy Deluca.

The Heat's On High Will Cathy D. End Up Wearing the Egg or Will Teflon Save Her?

Will Cathy D. End Up Wearing the Egg or Will Teflon Save Her?

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center has been surrounded by controversy and accusations of wrong-doing since Day One. In fact, the place gets deeper and deeper into trouble as time goes on. As you’ve read here—but not in the News Herald or the Times Union, of course—all about the financial misconduct, the administrative misconduct, the hiring misconduct, and the list goes on. So why would the Ravena News Herald or the Times Union pick up on a scandal story abour their cronies? The point is: They wouldn’t and you’d still be in La-La Land thinking everything is just peachy–just like you’ve been doing for decades while village of Ravena mayor John Bruno, village of Ravena trustee Nancy Warner, Coeymans Police Department employee Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, village of Ravene unlawful employee Cathy Deluca, town of Coeymans “runaway bunny police chief” Gregory Darlington and their mob rub their hands together just so impatient to get their pice of the action. Well, last month, even before the Ravena Health and Fitness Center officially opened its doors, Cathy Deluca opened her big mouth and got herself and the village of Ravena into a bit of a pickle. As a result, a Notice of Claim was filed against the village of Ravena, Cathy Deluca, and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. It’s the first step before the lawsuits.

Wanna join me at the "club", Mr Mayor?

Wanna join me at the “club”, Mr Mayor?

But the dirt doesn’t stop there. It appears the Cathy Deluca had no sooner blabbed her way into a lawsuit but she then reports an incident to her little friends down at chubby-hubby’s Coeymans Police Department, alleging that she’d been harassed and stating false facts. This is a misdemeanor crime in New York state. Well, her plan to get an innocent party into hot water backfired on her. Sorry, Cathy!

What’s worse is that she apparently managed to get an employee of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center to lie along with her. That’s another felony/misdemeanor called conspiracy. You see when you plan to commit a crime and get someone to help you out, whether that someone knows what you’re doing or not, that person is involved in a conspiracy. So, Cathy D. apparently got an employee of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center under her control and supervision, a Claude A. Wheeles, to allegedly corroborate her lies to the Coeymans Police Department.

Well, the fact that falsely reporting an incident to law enforcement and causing law enforcement to investigate something that never happened is a serious crime. So is getting someone to collaborate with you in that crime. And that’s apparently, or at least according to the papers filed with the Coeymans Police Department allege that Deluca did.

What Cathy D. and her little helper, Claude A. Wheeles,  didn’tknow is that the entire incident was caught on tape and that recording was recently turned over to the Coeymans Police Department as evidence that Cathy D. and her alleged co-conspirator Mr Wheeles lied to the police about the incident they alleged to have happened at the Ravena Health and Fitness Center.

According to the papers we have, that resulted in a second Notice of Claim, in addition to the first one served on the village of Ravena, the second one alleging that Cathy D. committed the crimes of falsely reporting an incident to law enforcement and conspiring to do so. Now the village of Ravena has to answer for a second, now criminal, complaint against the Teflon-Tootsie.

Question is: Do We Go After the town of Coeymans, the Coeymans Police Department, Gregory Darlington on Civil or Criminal Charges Stemming from Indifference and Negligence, and Incompetence to Obstruction of Justice?

Of course, the Coeymans police department, the very place where the Teflon-Tootsie’s chubby-hubby, Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca works as a so-called police investigator, is dragging their dung-stained heels on the investigation. Darlington, the so-called chief of the Coeymans Keystones, hasn’t responded to any of several letters concerning the case. And the Complainant has warned Darlington and his minions that chubby-hubby Jerry Deluca had better be kept far from the investigation of his wife and had better not have access to any investigation information or any of the evidence provided or gathered.

old guy loser

Darlington, himself, because of his mismanagement of the department and his indifference to citizen’s complaints and inquiries has set himself up for disciplinary action and he’s only making it worse for himself by refusing to respond to the Claimant’s requests for updates and callbacks to take the Claimant’s statement.

The village of Ravena and the Albany County Civil Service Department are also under fire because of the way the village of Ravena requested creation of a new civil service job title for Cathy Deluca and saying that the positon should be classified as “exempt“. That means that the village of Ravena claims that the position would not be suitable for classification as a “competitive” position. Does that surprise anyone?

The so-called director of the Albany County Civil Service department, Michael Cummings, is on the hotseat for approving the position without the necessary paperwork or explanations. His last response was that there was “clerical error.” Bullshit, Cummings. You’re incompetent and in cahoots with your crooked friends in Ravena! Well, Cummings and mayor John Bruno with his hatchet-woman Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca  thought the whole filthy affair would never get discovered and they’d get away with their little conspiracy. They still haven’t learned that things are different now. We find things out and they get published.

Cummings got caught with his pants around his ankles on this one and there will be a lot of questions to be answered when this gets to the New York State Civil Service Department, to the Office of the NYS Comptroller, and to the Office of the NYS Attorney General with all of the exhibits and demands for investigation and prosecution. No Cummings, Bruno, Warner, Deluca, it isn’t over by a longshot.

Stay tuned, readers! As soon as we have had the chance to read all the paperwork and get it prepped for posting, you’ll read it all here. Be patient, it might take a week but we’ll have it up for you. You can make your own decisions once see the documents.

Question is: Who’s going to be willing to take the fall with Cathy D.?

But Will It Really Be Worth the Fall? The Editor

Business as Usual in Ravena: Violation of Constitutional Rights!

Do your part in informing the community and the world: Cut and paste the link to this blog article into an e-mail and send it to your contacts!
Here’s the link: http://wp.me/p2jPFe-1IV

In 2009, the Ravena News Herald Reported that Michael Biscone Attempted to Limit Free Speech in Ravena

Village of Ravena, Bruno, Biscone, Deluca they're Burning Our Constitution!

Village of Ravena, Bruno, Biscone, Deluca
They’re Burning Our Constitution!

Yes, you read correctly. In an article by Laurie Lynn printed on the front page of the Ravena News Herald in its May 7, 2009, edition: “Ravena attorney limits free speech.” But that shouldn’t surprise anyone who has eyes to see and ears to hear.

The article describes Michael Biscone as “a lawyer for the village of Ravena” and describes the village’s and Biscone’s attempts to “illegally restrict public comments at its meetings.” According to a letter from “village attorney Michael Biscone, ” persons wanting to comment publicly “must give the board…an outline of what they plan to say” before the meeting!”

It shouldn’t be surprising that the Coeymans town attorney at the time, David Wukitsch,  tells the News Herald that Biscone’s letter applies “two different rules to public participation.” Now that’s something really new for Ravena and RCS, isn’t it? Double standards? Two different rules?

The article goes on to quote Robert Freeman, executive director of the New York Committee on Open Government, “It is against the law to discriminate between who may speak at public meetings and who may not.”

Here’s another suprise for you: The reporter writes that the policy outlined in the letter was neither discussed nor brought to a vote during an open public meeting. Of course, Michael Biscone tries to wiggle his way out of that one, too. According to Biscone he wrote the letter based on a “request” made by the “board.”

Here’s where we have a problem with Biscone’s silly excuse. First of all, it sounds like the one about “the devil made me do it!” Biscone is an attorney licensed to practice law in New York. As far as we know, New York is located in the United States of America, and in the good ol’ USA the Constitution and its Amendments are the highest law of the land. And don’t law schools teach constituional law? Aren’t attorneys expected to know about the Bill of Rights? Free speech, free assembly, all of that stuff? Apparently Biscone never heard of all that.

Ever Heard of This?

Hey, Biscone!
Ever Heard of This?

Here’s another one for you to toss about: Biscone at the time was village attorney. He was the official legal advisor to the village of Ravena on legal issues. Right? So if the village of Ravena wanted something done Biscone was supposed to advise them whether it would be legal or illegal. Right? Why didn’t Biscone tell the “board” who “requested” him to write up the gag policy, that it was illegal? Was it because Biscone was ignorant or just crooked and saw an opportunity to take advantage, as he normally does, of the Ravena village board, its mummy mayor, John Bruno, and the people of the district? No, Mikey, you can’t get off the hook so easily. If this blog were around then you’d probably be cleaning toilets instead of practicing your perverse form of law!

The law is clear: It is not legal for three or more board members to conduct government business in private (Freeman, New York Committee on Open Government). According to Freeman: “If indeed, a majority of the board discussed this issue…to comply with the law, the discussion should have occurred in public.”

Does this remind anyone of the secret meetings between Nancy Warner, John Bruno and Martin Case [?] (On information and belief, we believe Cathy Deluca was present, too.) when the Ravena Health and Fitness Center used equipment was purchased for more than $40,000 of taxpayer money from Robert “Bob” Fisk (a Persico), Rocco Persico’s (Ravena village trustee) cousin, and Jose Bruno handled the sale (and the property rental to the RC Teen Center). The meeting alone was an illegal meeting! And it’s also true of the way the Ravena Health and Fitness Center was created! No public meetings. No minutes. No public discussion. Citizens were told what was going to be done, not asked!

Now, here’s Ravena mayor John Bruno’s usual “I didn’t know” response (Bruno used the same claim of ignorance when the state found serious accounting errors in the village of Ravena bookkeeping):

“Village mayor John Bruno said…that he knew Biscone was sending a letter. He said he did not review the contents before it was mailed. He said he was not sure whether or not the other board members knew of the letter before it was sent.”

What started all of this? Funny you should ask. Well, as we’ve reported on a number of occasions Ravena’s mummy mayor John Bruno and his sockpuppets, the Ravena village trustees, has problems with the town of Coeymans. This time it was about sewer services and who pays what. So, Laverne “Larry” Conrad, building inspector and code enforcement officer for the town of Coeymans, got in a 35-minute “interchange” during a village board meeting with mayor Bruno.

According to Conrad:

“I got tired of hearing the information being improperly broadcast at village board meetings…I was just trying to clarify the numbers. They’ve been all over the place with numbers.”

According to the News Herald, “Biscone’s…letter” letter to Coeymans town supervisor at the time, R. Hotaling, “expressed some ‘significant concern’about Conrad’s appearance.”

Here’s how Biscone worded his illegal demand on behalf of the Ravena village board:

“Please understand that in the future, a representative of the town government will not be recognized to speak at a village public meeting unless that individual has prior approval from the board and an outline is presented to the board in advance of the contents of that individual’s concerns.” [our emphasis]

Biscone continues in that April 23, 2009, letter:

“I am advised by the village board that this rule will apply, not only to representatives of the town government, but to any individual who is not a village resident.” [our emphasis]

This is incredible. This is scandalous. It’s an outrage that Michael Biscone or any attorney licensed to practice law in New York state or anywhere in the United States could pen such illegal, unlawful, un-American rubbish and not find himself in front of a disciplinary board getting his license suspended! It’s even more scandalous and outrageous to have to admit that this shyster was Ravena village attorney at the time [and continues to work very closely with the village board], and at board meetings was constantly whispering something into Bruno’s hairy ears.

It’s even more idiotic that Ravena allows its mummy mayor to get away with his moronic excuse, “I didn’t know…” What in hell is he mayor for? The article by NH reporter Lynn and even the Biscone letter states that it was the “village board,” who requested him to write the rule, despite its obvious illegality. The board is made up of the trustees and the mayor! The exchange allegedly giving rise to the rule was between Larry Conrad and mayor John Bruno! Bruno’s either senile or a liar. More likely he’s a senile liar!

,big>Public Places and Public Meetings Are Free Speech Zones

Public Places & Public Meetings Are Free Speech Zones

The article quotes Coeymans town board member Thomas Boehm as saying, “the village board members are ” just further isolating themselves’…’they hide behind their attorney.” Never were truer words spoken.

Boehm is further quoted as saying “The village is going against the democratic principles our country is based on…[t]hey’re limiting the ability of the public to communicate ideas and thoughts.”

And Larry Conrad, an official of the town of Coeymans:

“He’s [Biscone, Bruno] not stopping me from coming…What was his purpose–to censor my rights as a person and my rights to speak? If they remove me from a meeting for just being there, there will be a lawsuit, guaranteed. And Michael Biscone won’t be representing me.”

That’s really cute, Larry, because the article also notes that Michael Biscone was not only Ravena village attorney, he was [and isn’t he still?] your “personal lawyer”!

thank-you card+pen

Special thanks go to Laurie Lynn, the reporter who wrote the 2009 article for the News Herald, and a very special friend who provided us with the entire print issue of the May 7, 2009, News Herald article quoted above.

This entire issue is very, very timely considering the fact that papers were recently served on the village of Ravena for violations of a citizen’s rights by Cathy Deluca, director of the illegal and unlawfully equipped and created Ravena Health and Fitness Center. The Coeymans Police Department is also investigating criminal charges of harassment filed by the abused citizen against Deluca.

There is also the issue of the Ravena Shop’n Save having prevented two local citizens from exercising their rights of free expressive activity and lawful political activity in the public space near the Shop’n Save. Shop’n Save management demanded that they stop their activity, an activity that is explicitly protected by the First Amendment, and asked them to leave. We have agreed to assist those two citizens in putting together their lawsuit.

It’s up to us to ensure that our Constitutional Rights are not violated by our local public officials and their lackeys. It’s time to wake up and shake things up!

You can read and download the minutes of the April 27, 2009, town of Coeymans board meeting at which the Biscone letter was read into the record and discussed by the Coeymans town board. The entire text of the Biscone letter is reproduced in those minutes. It’s an interesting read if you want to know how some of your Coeymans town board members feel about the relationship between the town of Coeymans and the village of Ravena.

Steal My Rights, Go to Jail!

Bad news for Bruno, Deluca and Biscone and everyone associated with those criminals!

Patrick E. Brown, Candidate? The Ugly Truth Is….


EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT HERE!School NewsRCS board of education passes the 2% tax levy, the absolute minimum levy to avoid losing services, programs, and support,  proposed by superintendent Dr Alan R. McCartney, versus the 3.5+% demanded by the teachers union and the Deluca gang! Another defeat for Matt “the Mutt” Miller! Vote was 5-4 passing the budget almost at the 11th hour. You know who were not happy campers.

Thank you! Mr Vadney, Dr McCartney!


Peter E. Brown, NO!
Mary Partridge-Brown NO!
Matt Miller MAYBE!
NYSUT YES!
Is Running for a Seat on the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Board of Education

Who's Really Going to be On the Board of Education?!?

Who’s Really Going to be On the Board of Education?!?

Are You Confused Enough Yet to Cast Your Vote?

Brown will be NYSUT's, Deluca's, and Matt Miller's Sockpuppet!

Brown will be NYSUT’s, Deluca’s, and Matt Miller’s Sockpuppet!

We really had to have a good laugh when we saw the post on RCS Friends and More, the Facebook Coeymanazi announcement page dominated by the Friends of Cathy and Jerry Deluca. We read there that Peter E. Brown, Mary Partridge-Brown’s lawyer husband, is running for a seat on the RCS board of education. You know, the Mary Partridge-Brown who is so very close” to NYSUT union rep and former double-dipper teacher, Matt-the-Mutt Miller. Sure, you know her, at BoE meetings she’s always sitting with Matt Miller in the front row. (Did you ever ask where her husband is? The one who never attends a BoE meeting but is “running”.) Yes. Looks like NYSUT is trying to get back on the RCS BoE through the back door again.

I’d also like to remind readers that these are the same people who vehemently and vociferously opposed hiring Dr Alan R. McCartney, a professional superintendent, who is pulling this district out of the sinkhole teacher-favorite Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith left this district in, before she jumped ship and deserted the district. Who can forget Matt Miller’s vicious attacks?

 Here are More of the Ugly facts And Why
Peter E. Brown is Unfit to Run for
the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk
Board of Education:

Mary Partridge-Brown writes on the RCS Friends and More Facebook page:

My husband Patrick is running for the school board. Here’s an excerpt of his bio. My wife, Mary, and I have made our life in Coeymans since 1996. [Editor’s Note: He actually lives in Feura Bush, in the Town of New Scotland! He doesn’t live in Coeymans! LIAR!] We have three daughters, two of whom graduated from RCS in 2011. Our youngest daughter is now a freshman at the high school. Mary is an educator by training and experience and for several years has been an active volunteer in the District. [Editor’s Note: If Mary is “an educator by training and experience,” does that mean she’s a teacher, an aerobics instructor? If she’s such a hot-shot “educator” why is she “volunteering”? Oh, those nasty questions!]
I am an attorney and a small business owner [Editor’s Note: No, he’s just an attorney. Stop the lies, Peter. Your starting to sound like Peter of “Family Man.” There’s a big difference between being a lawyer and a “small business owner!” Gee, you know that, don’t you?]. I started my legal career in public service with the State’s highest court and later served as Assistant Counsel to Governor Mario M. Cuomo. [Editor’s Note: OK. Now we’re on to something BIG: Peter E. Brown advises Governor Mario Cuomo, Andrew Cuomo’s father. Caution: Constitution-burning simians on the loose!] In 2001, with my partner David Weintraub, I founded and now own a law firm in Albany. Our principle [Editor’s Note: I think the lawyer had a brain fart and means “principal.”]  function is to provide our clients with strategies to effectively deal with government. In all of my professional capacities I am required to be a problem solver and a consensus builder. I believe those skills and experiences will make me an effective school board member. [Editor’s Note: No. It means you’ll jump directly into bed with your wife’s friend Matt Miller and the teacher’s clique. Period. We’ll be set back at least a decade in the RCS district with you on the board.]
My father was a steamfitter and we moved around a lot when I was a kid. I spent three great years of my childhood living on Pulver Ave in Ravena, playing Little League at Mosher Park and attending Pieter B.  [Editor’s Note:  OK. More than 50 years ago he played in Ravena. Now that’s a real attention-getter if there is one!] None of my school experiences could ever compare with 5th grade at Pieter B. Coeymans with Mrs. Nuite who quite literally changed my life by instilling discipline in me, by challenging me, and giving me confidence to think for myself. The Mrs. Nuite’s of the world are precious, and like all special things, they do not just happen- they must be cultivated, supported and appreciated. [Editor’s Note: Mr Peter E. Brown’s nostalgia just gave him away. He’s married to an educator, has fondest memories of a teacher in his life, and calls that teacher “precious.” Do you think he has a partiality for teachers? He writes that “[teachers] must be cultivated, supported and appreciated.” Can you guess where this is going?]  That can only happen in a community where education is cherished. [Editor’s Note: I think we need to probe a little deeper into this whole excerpt from the Collected Works of Bullshit. Does Mr Brown think we came down with the last shower? We see through you, Peter!] I want to represent that community on the RCS School Board. [Editor’s Note: There’s only two communities that Peter E. Brown wants to serve: the community of Peter E. Brown and the community of Matt Miller and NYSUT. Let’s be clear about that!]

Does it get any better? Endorsed by a public louse!

Does it get any better?
Endorsed by a public louse!

Jim Youmans writes: He has my vote. [Editor’s Note: Youman’s endorsement would sooner get him tarred and feathered than voted in!]

We Have Some Remarks about Mr Peter E. Brown, Esq.:

(Mary Partridge Brown keep quiet. We want hubby to respond. He’s the so-called strawman candidate.)

Peter E. Brown

Peter E. Brown

  • Mr Peter E. Brown lives in Feura Bush, town of New Scotland. How close in his heart and soul really, is Mr Peter E. Brown to Ravena, Coeymans, New Baltimore, even Selkirk?
  • Even if we turn a blind eye to his initial lies and b.s., Mr Peter E. Brown is quite a busy man with his law practice and the rest of his activities. How will he possibly find time to give adequate attention to his duties and responsibilities to the residents of the RCS CSD if he is elected to be a member of the board of education? We don’t think he’ll have the time nor do we think we’ll be getting a fair deal if he’s elected.
  • Mr Peter E. Brown resides in the Town of New Scotland, in the hamlet of Feura Bush. He is only part of the RCS CSD and votes in the town of Coeymans by some fluke of districting. Now, I ask all of you readers, do you think Mr Peter E. Brown, living in Feura Bush, in the Town of New Scotland, really cares what happens in Ravena, Coeymans, New Baltimore, or even Selkirk. Be real, now. His interests lie with his social equals in Albany and Feura Bush and we know damned well that we in Ravena, Coeymans, Selkirk aren’t his “social” types. Just look at his record for attending BoE meetings: ZERO! Has he personally ever appeared to make a statement about what’s going on in this RCS school district? NEVER! What makes you think that all of a sudden he’s passionately interested in what’s going on here?
  • In the Facebook plug, his name isn’t even mentioned. What’s his name, Mary Partridge-Brown? His wife, Mary Partridge Brown just refers to him as “my husband.” Or isn’t that important. You’re asking people to vote for your husband, Mary P-B, but he doesn’t have a name. Oh, we get it. His name is not important because YOUR name appears on the post. Do we have it right? He’s campaigning but YOU’RE the one who’s running, right? He’s just going to warm a chair seat at BoE meetings, like Edward Reville, and do what Mary says…and the Delucas, and Matt Miller. Why don’t you just endorse an Arby’s Reuben sandwich? At least you can eat it!
  • My question is how many times have you seen this character at a BoE meeting? How many times have you heard him get up and speak pro or con about an issue troubling this community? How many times have you read a letter to the editor from this guy? And now he pops out of a crack in the wall and writes up an installment for Love-Fest Journal begging for your votes! Isn’t that typical politics around here, though. You never hear anything about them until they are kissing ass for a vote!
  • And why is his wife putting out his bio if he’s so gung-ho about the community? Yes, that’s the kind of guy I want representing me…let’s his wife do his talking for him. Now that’s real interest in the community. What’s his recent record in the community NOW, not 30 years ago?
  • And Mary Partridge-Brown describes…excuse me…her husband describes her in the excerpt that Mary herself publishes on Facebook…as an “educator.” Why doesn’t he just come out and say, “She’s a freakin’ teacher!” or “She volunteers or works in the high-school library” or, more honestly, “She sits on Matt Miller’s lap during RCS board of education meetings.” Let’s ask where Mary Partridge-Brown works as an educator and drop all the smoke screen and lies!
  • But the facts are: Mary Partridge-Brown helps out at the high-school library (“educator”???), donates time and does book drives. According to our sources she is not gainfully employed. But reliable sources inform us that she is very close to Matt Miller (Anyone who attends the RCS BoE meetings or watches them would know that. But Mr Peter E. Brown doesn’t attend BoE meetings).
  • What this means is that Mr Peter E. Brown is the candidate but Mary Partridge-Brown is calling the shots and Matt the Mutt Miller of double-dipping renown, NYSUT teachers union rep will be doing the voting on the board. If you trust this toxic mix, why don’t you just drink some Draino and do yourself a favor.
  • And of course, the “louse-in-a-man-suit former Coeymans town supervisor Jim Youmans, may the hair on his back fall out in clumps, publicly writes, and several lusers “like” his comment (probably the Partridge-Brown tribe), “He has my vote!” So what’s that supposed to mean? Simply that Jerry Deluca doesn’t have to abuse and misuse confidential information to find out how Jim Younis votes?

lies-interpreted

Here’s Patrick E. Brown’s self-description on his law firm’s Internet site (the comments are our own):

Patrick E. Brown spent over a decade providing legal and public policy counsel to the judges of the state’s highest court and Governor Cuomo.

What this means is that he has experience in suppressing your rights and burning the Constitution. He has actually provided legal information and advice to the Cuomos. You know the rest of the story.

He has spent the last 12 years providing legal and strategic advice to companies of all sizes, unions, hospitals and other non-profit organizations, and associations.

So we know where his loyalties will be. Certainly not in a struggling community like Coeymans, Ravena, New Baltimore…unless we’ve got some companies, unions, hospitals and the like who need his “legal and strategic advice.” Judging by the economy and by the unions’ activities, Peter E. Brown’s legal advice isn’t doing them or us much good. Maybe Peter should go into selling used cars; I’m sure he’d do very well as a used car salesman. He’s just not cutting it here, though.

His expertise in the areas of ethics, election law, health care, economic development, gaming, and Indian law has proved invaluable to our clients since he began as a founding partner here in 2001.

DECEIT

DECEIT

This is the part that really gets me where it hurts. “ethics, election law…economic development.” Brown claims to be on the Coeymans zoning board of appeals. If he’s so damned interested in this community, where’s all this legal and strategic advice he’s handing out. I don’t see anything happening in Coeymans. If he’s such a specialist in “ethics” why are we having such problems in the RCS CSD with unethical practices à la Matt Miller and the teachers clique? If he’s so damned specialized in election law, how in hell did we get into the scandalous mess of the last budget and BoE elections? Doesn’t anyone notice that his wife Mary Partridge-Brown is in our faces all over the place, is a real girl-friend with Cathy Deluca, and we’ve already mentioned the conspicuous relationship with Matt Miller. Ethics? Election law? Are you crazy, Peter E. Brown? You must be even to show your face around here!

During his decade of public service, Mr. Brown was Chief Law Assistant to the New York State Court of Appeals, First Assistant Counsel to Governor Cuomo and Director of Industry and Community Relations at the Department of Economic Development.

We got your number with the court of appeals and the connection with abuse of power and undue influence probability in terms of attorney discipline (the Court of Appeals handles attorney discipline). We’ve also commented on your Cuomo-connection, and it ain’t pretty. And whatever you’ve been telling the Director of Industry and Community Relations and the Department of Economic Development isn’t working. So, really, I’m not quite ready to put my money on your horse, buddy. (Maybe you should open a used book shop, I understand Mary, you know, your wife, has a ton of them.)

He was also the state’s chief negotiator with Indian Tribes and Nations.

Now, I can go with this “Indian Tribes and Nations” because I think Indians are really cool. But the only problem is: The only Indians we have in this area are the RCS Indians, and even that moniker comes under fire for political correctness. Nah! That’s not going to work in RCS. You’ll have to find some other Indians, Petey-boy.

Mr. Brown is a member of the Town of Coeymans Zoning Board of Appeals.

Surprise! No comment.

dont-believe-the-liesSo that’s our findings on Mr Peter E. Brown, husband of Mary Partridge-Brown, who has some questionable connections with Matt Miller and the New York State United Teachers union, and the very questionable relationship with the teachers clique. I’m  not even going to mention the close relationships with Cathy and “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca.  Peter E. Brown is definitely one to keep out of the BoE and, if possible, out of the district. But he doesn’t seem to have spent very much time involved in the district or in the BoE in the past, and that should speak volumes about his motivation and purposes in seeking election to be a member of the RCS CSD board of education. We need to be very, very careful here.

As usual, if you find that you have any facts that contradict our information, we would be very grateful if you’d let us know so we can do the proper investigations and, if necessary, make the appropriate corrections.

Ravena Continues Criminally Irresponsible Financial Neglect

The Village of Ravena Publishes the Proposed 2013-14 Budget: $115,500 for the Village Fitness Center;
Cathy Deluca to be Director making $30,000+.

Illegal, Exclusive, Expensive

Illegal, Exclusive, Expensive

Do the math: If there are 500 households in Ravena, the fitness outfit will cost each and every household at least $300.00 in 2013-2014!

Bruno-Warner-Deluca BurningYour Money

Bruno-Warner-Deluca BurningYour Money

The Village of Ravena Refuses to Disclose Legal Fees
Financial Irresponsibility Continues in the Village

Village Mayor John T. Bruno is Still Clueless

Mayor John T. Bruno

Mayor John T. Bruno

In a Times Union article following the Office of the NYS Comptroller’s audit of the village of Ravena, ” Audit slams Ravena board. Village officials fail to monitor finances, comptroller warns,” we read:

The Village Board has little control over finances…The audit revealed scant oversight by the board and said the village treasurer has almost exclusive control over finances…It found that the board is not aware of purchases, does not monitor the actual cost of operations versus the budgeted cost, does not approve budget transfers, did not audit the treasurer’s records or the justice court and filed annual financial reports late…
None of the transfers were approved by the board, the audit said… The audit called the village’s purchasing policy outdated, said the policy is not being followed and the board is not monitoring purchases… Two out of three department heads said they were unaware the village had a purchasing policy, and in reviewing claims, a substantial portion of them did not have proper documentation attached…”The mayor stated that the board was not aware that audits of the treasurer’s and the justice court’s records were required to be completed,” the audit said.

More than thirty years on the village payroll and Mayor John T. Bruno still hasn’t got a clue. ‘What, records? Us, keep records? Nah! I don’t know nothin’! Get outta here!”

And Nancy Biscone-Warner, wife of village justice Harold “Hal” Warner, has been treasurer for more than 20 years, and has been re-elected to the position by dumbass voters (probably the Brunos, Biscones, Persicos, Albanos, and a handful of Coeymanazis were enough to vote her in). Now she’s haunting the corridors of village hall 25/7. Why are the village Ravena, NY, reading reports of such incompetence and voting these clowns back into office?!? We don’t get it!!! Shouldn’t these walking-dead from the past be exorcised or something?

Nancy Warner Still Haunts Village Hall

Nancy Warner Still Haunts Village Hall

This blog has reported extensively on the village of Ravena’s backroom deals to evict the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Community Library and create the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. The planning for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center was business as usual in the village of Ravena: it was done secretly. No public hearings, no public comment. Then the village of Ravena went ahead and purchased about $40,000 in used health club equipment from another insider. The $40 grand came out of the public treasury. Again no public hearings or inputs.

We published our prediction that the Ravena-Coeymans Incest Club, the Brunos, Biscones, Warners, Delucas would be setting up a cozy little private spa for themselves and their croneys, as well as providing a plum position for one of their own. Well, as usual our prediction is correct.
The proposed village of Ravena budget is out and here are the figures for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, which already has its own e-mail and designer logo, again a done deal behind closed doors.

Cathy Long-Deluca

Cathy Long-Deluca

As we predicted, Cathy Deluca has been given the position of fitness center director at a cool salary of $30,000. Is that being paid out of taxpayer monies? Yes! Does it include benefits that not many of us are likely to see? Yes! Is this an insider pick? Yes!

Actually, Cathy Deluca does have some fitness center mismanagement experience. She managed a fitness center when she was still Cathy Long. Remember the fitness center on Main Street? The one that failed?

So let’s have a look at the “budget officers estimates” of what the fitness center is going to cost (the figure below is taken directly out of the proposed budget):

7180 Fitness Center  
130 Director (Cathy Deluca) 30,000.00
151 Hourly Employees 30,000.00
290 Equipment 30,000.00
424 Telephone 500.00
429 Repairsto Equipment 20,000.00
435 Outside Services 2,200.00
436 Unclassified 3,000.00

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center is Estimated to Cost Ravena Residents $115,500 in 2013-14. Can you afford that?

We’d like you to have a close look at item s 290 Equipment and 429 Repairs to Equipment. The village plans to spend another $30,000 on equipment for this misconceived misuse of public money. But what’s really irking us is that they’re budgeting another $20,000 for repairing equipment. They just bought about $40,000 in used equipment, and now they’re planning to spend another $20,000 repairing it. (Do the math: $60,000 in junk, scrap!) Our question is obvious: Who got the kickbacks?

There’s no business plan or anything like planning so the other $5,200 for items 435 Outside Services and 436 Unclassified are still mysteries. But let the imagination go wild on this one!

multicolor rhfcWhile I do not generally advocate taking local dollars out of the community, I must admit that nothing, nothing that the village of Ravena can do can even come close to the opportunities in Glenmont, just down the road with Planet Fitness and it’s beautiful facility, including changing rooms, tanning, instructors, events, sanitation, etc. And all at a ridiculously reasonable price and a variety of plans. But then, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center with all of its misleading hype, is not for you or me, it’s for the Ravena-Coeymans in-crowd.

Once the Coeymanazi bunch makes the Ravena Health and Fitness Center its watering hole, do you think the rest of us will be welcome? Guess again!

BigFatDancingDeluca_sm

How comfortable will you feel with Jerry Dirty-Hands Deluca behind you?

So, cruising down Main Street in Ravena we can take in the Bruno legacy as we approach a centennial: empty storefronts and empty residential buildings. But Ravena has $115,500 dollars in the 2013-14 budget for a fitness center. Go figure!

Moreover, wouldn’t it have been more responsible to have budgeted that $150,000 to support say the RC Teen Center’s programs for the benefit of youth, or perhaps to invested some of it in the RCS Community Library programs, after all the Library is in the geographical territory of the village of Ravena, or maybe some billing software to keep village accounts, especially water and sewer billings, honest. Speaking of water and sewer, how can the village board of Ravena in good conscience budget $150,000 for a health and fitness center of dubious merit, while neglecting the necessary repair of a 100-year old village sewer and drainage system! It’s criminal and Mayor John T. Bruno and his lunatic band of clowns William Bailey, Rocco Persico, Martin Case, and Nancy Biscone-Warner need to do some jail time with co-conspirators Cathy Long-Deluca and Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca!

Lady-Kiss-Hips

Cathy D.: “Gimme a health-club, Mayor Johny!”

We’d also like to remind our readers that the Bruno-Warner-Deluca fitness scam is also at the expense of a community institution, the RCS Community library. The library is funded by tax dollars that property owners in the town of Coeymans pay. You voted on its budget at the same time you voted for the RCS central school district budget, and the members of the RCS school board. The RCS Community Library serves residents of two counties as a result of the funding (actually the town of Coeymans (Albany County) and part of the town of New Baltimore (Greene County). In other words, the RCS Community Library is a publicly funded institution that serves the entire RCS CSD region, plus. The village of Ravena has done everything possible to make the library unwelcome, including raising its rent by an additional $600. That’s $600 of your money.

One of the reasons the RCS Community Library could not leave its location in the Ravena village building is because D. Persico, board member Rocco Persico’s cousin, didn’t have the money to finish the required renovations, and had to qualify for a loan. Normally, when a contractor renegs on a commitment, there are penalties, like Donnie, you’ve got to eat the rent hike? But that’s not how business is done in Ravena-Coeymans, especially in the Incest Club. Rather than impose penalties on the contractor-board-member-cousin who doesn’t have the money to finish the job, the village of Ravena raises the library’s rent by $600!

This situation has to be investigated and we’ll be publishing forms for residents to fill in and cover letters that can be used for submitting complaints to the Office of the State Comptroller and to the Office of the Attorney General, demanding that the operations in the village of Ravena be investigated.

Rocco Persico

Rocco Persico

Isn’t it odd that Rocco Persico is a psychologist on the payroll of the RCS school district and he’s on the village of Ravena board. I really have to ask myself what kind of psychologist Persico is if he’s on the Ravena board and this crazy shite still goes on? Maybe that’s why the high-school kids are so whacked out.


And the Financial Irresponsibility and Criminally Poor Recordkeeping Goes On and On and On…
What is Ravena Shelling Out for Legal Fees?
In Other Words:
What is the Michael Biscone Racket Being Paid?

FOIL
A Local Resident Filed a Demand for Production and Disclosure of the Village of Ravena’s Legal Expenditures. The demand was made under the New York State Freedom of Information Act, which requires public entities–with the exception of courts–to produce and disclose all public access information within a specific period of time.

§84. Legislative declaration. The legislature hereby finds that a free society is maintained when government is responsive and responsible to the public, and when the public is aware of governmental actions. The more open a government is with its citizenry, the greater the understanding and participation of the public in government.

*****

The people’s right to know the process of governmental decision-making and to review the documents and statistics leading to determinations is basic to our society. Access to such information should not be thwarted by shrouding it with the cloak of secrecy or confidentiality. The legislature therefore declares that government is the public’s business and that the public, individually and collectively and represented by a free press, should have access to the records of government in accordance with the provisions of this article.

Yes, every one of us has the right to demand disclosure of information from our government and public agencies. The government and its agencies work for you. Don’t let them forget that fact!

There are laws, the Freedom of Information Law, for example, that lay down the who, what, where, how, and when. And you should know about all of this. For example:

§89. General provisions relating to access to records; certain cases. 3. (a) Each entity subject to the provisions of this article, within five business days of the receipt of a written request for a record reasonably described, shall make such record available to the person requesting it, deny such request in writing or furnish a written acknowledgment of the receipt of such request and a statement of the approximate date, which shall be reasonable under the circumstances of the request, when such request will be granted or denied, including, where appropriate, a statement that access to the record will be determined in accordance with subdivision five of this section. An agency shall not deny a request on the basis that the request is voluminous or that locating or reviewing the requested records or providing the requested copies is burdensome because the agency lacks sufficient staffing or on any other basis if the agency may engage an outside professional service to provide copying, programming or other services required to provide the copy, the costs of which the agency may recover pursuant to paragraph (c) of subdivision one of section eighty-seven of this article.

And so far, the village of Ravena (and the RCS CSD district offices, Dr McCartney. But more on this later.) have obstinately broken the law!

It seems a local resident submitted a demand for disclosure of the village of Ravena’s legal fees, because of the observation that wherever you look there’s either a Biscone or a Teresi doing legal work for the village, the town, private individual, on their own. And given the NYS Comptroller’s observation that nobody seems to know who’s doing what or where the money’s going, it apparently seemed like a good idea to get the official word. Normally, a FOIL works…unless there’s something to hide.

Well, the resident got the runaround and then it was “we need more time because we’re mailing out sewer and water bills.” OK . Call him stupid, but the resident agreed to give them more time. And then…SILENCE. He contacted the village and the clerk tells him that the request is unreasonable, that she does not have access to the records, what she does have she’ll produce by August 2, 2013. WTF! Read the law (especially the parts quoted above)!

For all we have to say about the town of Coeymans, who apparently got the same request at the same time, the Coeymans town clerk responded in a matter of days! Why is it that Ravena needs almost 6 months from the time the FOIL was submitted to the time the village clerk expects to have the records? No way, José!  Well, maybe they don’t have any records. Maybe they don’t want to surrender the records. Maybe someone doesn’t want the records public. Maybe all of the above.

So now the village of Ravena has a choice: either get the documents to the resident or face the consequences. Now we’re on the case and we’ll see it right on through to the Office of the Comptroller and the Office of the Attorney General. And we know of quite a few other residents who’ll be more than happy to join the movement.

Well, dear readers, the law is the law for you and me, and for the village of Ravena. The village of Ravena is now breaking the law and it’s time to go public and demand that the Office of the State Comptroller and the State Attorney General do some poking around. Where are the records, Ravena?

Actually, we’ve hear that Michael Biscone is having his own problems these days. It seems he’s allegedly being sanctioned by the court for some sort of misconduct. We’re trying to lay our hands on the papers and will publish as soon as we can find out the facts. A former partner of Biscone’s, Joe  Rotello, is now in the Appellate Division, the New York State Unified Court System division that is responsible for disciplining attorneys. We just want all concerned to know that we know and that we’ll be watching for any messing around. May Biscone get what’s coming to him!

Obama and Soares Don't Lose with Dignity

Soares, Like His Godfathers Cuomo and Osama, Don’t Lose with Dignity

Here we have a Democrat State Governor, who like a sneak in the night, passes an anti-gun law, violating citizens’ constitutional rights. We then have to hear the Times Useless report that the state of New York is complaining that protestors caused $60,000 in damage to state capitol lawns by walking or standing on the grass. According to the Albany Times Useless:

The Feb. 28 rally at the Capitol building in Albany, NY, will mean a $60,000 bill for the state Office of General Services, the Times Union is reporting. OGS will spend that much to repair the grass at West Capitol Park, in the shadows of the state Capitol.

The Times Union reports that it was a combination of wet, muddy conditions and the large crowd at the rally. The rally was organized to oppose New York’s newly adopted gun control law.

[Source: Business Review, “Albany gun rally led to $60K in Capitol lawn damages,”  April 3, 2013.]

Of course, there’s no mention in the Albany Times Useless that the citizens were exercising at least three rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States: the right of peaceful assembly [and protest], freedom of speech and expression, the right to bear [and own] arms. Gee! Why would the Albany Times Useless support citizens when it can kiss Democrat ass in Albany? No, it wasn’t citizens protesting an ambitious, arrogant Democrat governor’s illegal and immoral act, it was the lawns!

Now, seriously, do you think anything, a single word would have been said if the demonstrators were black or hispanic? Now be honest. The majority of protesters were white men and women, people who own their guns legally—or should I say owned them legally—so they were the usual fair game. Need I say more?

Sore-ass Soares’, he’s got a case of sore ass after getting it kicked so often by federal and state judges, of course he has has a bad case of ego-dysfunction a.k.a. minority complex. But, of course, as a minority, he can do no wrong. So we’re going after the Oreo!

David_Soares bearded

Soares: “It’s nobody’s business.”
Sorry, Bucko, (you arrogant b*&%#@d) you’re an elected official (or did you conveniently forget that fact). It is our business what you do in your office with your personnel! Especially if it involves BOINKING!

And speaking of immoral acts, we must also mention the Albany County District Attorney, P.[udenda] David Soares, who likes to dip his pen[is] into company [p]ink and then, when he gets caught, finds his piece of sugar fluff a job in county government. (Soares’ reaction to reports that he is in a relationship with a legal secretary in his office is that it is “not improper” and is “nobody’s business.” What do you think?) And what about that paradigm of Democrat values, Governor Andrew Cuomo and his live-in girlfriend. Even Roman Catholics are up in arms about his concubinage and his receiving sacraments from ultra-liberal Roman Catholic bishop Howard Hubbard! (Read about it at Cuomo’s Catholic Concubinage.) [Editor’s Note: It must be mentioned that Howard Hubbard’s practices and programs ares not representative of or supported by the mainstream Catholic church hierarchy, most RC bishops, and the majority of Roman Catholics. Obviously, Albany is the best place for him and his supporters.]

Yo' Go Daddy So'Ass. Yo' Got Ma Vote!Now break off a big piece o'dis ass-candy!

Yo’ Go Daddy So’Ass. Yo’ Got Ma Vote!
Now break off a big piece o’dis ass-candy!
Try to control yourselves David, Mario. This is a public blog.

When you really come down to it, when you have no program, no delivery, no convincing message, and you got no style, you have no choice but to pander to the unwashed masses, promising bread (and delivering stones), and you can’t afford not to use the race-card. That’s the only way our Arrogant Oreo Club of Stooges manage to get elected. Look at Barack Hussein Osama…oops! Obama, P.[udenda] David Sore-ass, and Andrew “Sneak-it-in-the-Backdoor” Cuomo, who did all his race purchases while HUD secretary, and promptly blew it all away with his overenthusiasm with the gun bill!

But Here’s the Ultimate in Harassment and Retaliation as Only P.[udenda] David Sore-Ass and His Nazi Keepers Can Do:

P. David Sore-Ass and the RCS Coeymanazis/Albany Political Machine Are Appealing Judge Ryan Donovan’s Decision to Dismiss All Charges Against RCS Board of Education President John M. Vadney.

This is the same tactics used in Nazi Germany and in Stalinist Russia: Take over the police, the courts, and then use them to harass and retaliate. Intimidate the citizen. Overrule justice and law to achieve your nefarious political agendas. Once they make sure everyone knows that the police do not serve and protect and the courts do not administer justice, then we are all slaves to the system.

Obama, Cuomo, Soares, and little trolls like Deluca, Miller and their Minions are Burning the Constitution

Obama, Cuomo, Soares, and little trolls like Deluca, Miller and their Minions are Burning the Constitution

Now, really, we have to ask ourselves several questions:

  • Who is so obsessed with pursuing a case with no merits, no hard evidence, no facts, and no hope of success? Everyone had a fair chance to present what they had, to put their cards on the table, and an impartial judge found that there was no case. What more is to be done, other than retaliate and harass, Mr Sore-Ass?
  • What is the motivation to pursue a case that dragged on and on for almost a year? If the D.A.’s office has such a good case, why didn’t the so-called special prosecutor move forward with it and go to full trial, like Mr Vadney has been demanding all along?
  • Why, if the case was such a slam-dunk, didn’t Soares’ so-called hot-shot special prosecutor run with it, make quick work of it? After all, if the case is worth pursuing and, despite a judge’s ruling dismissing it, still looks so good,it would surely be a no-brainer and “easy money.”
  • Why is this case so important that the Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares, feels it’s so important to spend more public money and valuable time on it? This isn’t a brutal  murder or robbery case. This isn’t a horrible rape case. This isn’t a high profile political bribery case. In fact, it’s a case that state high court judges have called “unconstitutional.” Several New York state high court judges have refused to prosecute harassment cases because they claim they violate 1st Amendment free speech and free expression rights! So we really have to ask Mr D.A. Sore-Ass, what’s your agenda, Mister? Whose axe are you grinding? What are you getting out of it?

If P. David Sore-ass would take our good advice, he’d benefit from listening to the sentiments of RCS residents regarding the dismissal of the charges against Mr Vadney (go to the RCS Board of Education site and review the video of the April 2 meeting). Residents who took the podium congratulated Mr Vadney on the news of the dismissal and to a man/woman, expressed relief that it was finally over. To a man/woman they admitted that it was a sham and that there was no truth to the charges. Now, Sore-ass, if you can’t read the writing on the wall, let me do it for you: Vadney has community support. You don’t. They think you’re a drug adled jerk for keeping this thing alive.

But then, Albany County D.A. P. David Soares has been made to look stupid by so many judges already, maybe he’s turned into a judge-hater and is just trying desperately to make a come-back. Or maybe he’s just a despicable self-loathing troll who is more into bullying and intimidation than doing a good job. Maybe he just doesn’t have the right stuff and, like Obama, got snookered into getting elected because the Dems like to play the minority card when in a corner.

It’s a he-said-she-said case of one man allegedly calling another man names! Name-calling is what’s being prosecuted and there’s no evidence that Mr Vadney called anyone names. All witnesses will testify that the allegations against Mr Vadney are simply not true!

It’s a case where the first defendant Joseph Edward “Joe” Tracey allegedly has a history of alcohol and drug abuse and Lord knows what else, went ballistic in front of witnesses, harassed Mr Vadney on the telephone with witnesses while on speaker phone, bad-mouthed the Bethlehem Police and got himself arrested and arraigned, had an order of protection issued against him several times, violated the order of protection at least once and admits it in a sworn statement.

We then have this character Joe Tracey making a complaint against, defaming a respected member of the community, a member of the Board of Education, twice elected to be president of the Board of Education, never exhibiting any behavior like that described by Tracey in his complaint. Anyone who knows Vadney knows him to be the picture of dignity, decorum, respect in his conduct of public business as board president, a loving father and husband, in other words, the guy you want to be your neighbor, your friend (and, by the way, he is!). Mr Vadney is the man this Community elected to be their representative to decide what’s good for their children and the RCS community has done that at least three times. His board members, also elected by the RCS Community to make education decisions for their children and their schools, have elected him to be their president, TWICE!

And some nobody, Joseph Edward “Joe” Tracey, a social derelict with a lunatic daughter who was estranged from him for years pops up out of nowhere and harasses not only Mr Vadney but threatens Mr Vadney’s family so that Mr Vadney has to get an order of protection against Tracey to keep him away from Vadney’s family. What does Tracey get from the special-prosecutor assigned by Albany County D.A. Sore-ass Soares, read it in the Albany Times Useless: 6-months probation! That’s the kind of guy you want in charge of your kids’s education, right. That’s the kind of guy you want as your neighbor, right? That’s they kind of guy you want to invite over for spaghetti and meatballs before the game. Is it, really?

Or maybe Soares is so insecure that he’s ashamed that his malicious and prolonged harassment of Mr Vadney on a no merit charge was judiciously and fairly dismissed because of the lack of truth and factual basis. lee kindlonOr is it that Soares’conspiracy with his political sewer friends in Ravena-Coeymans has been foiled by the law firm of his former opponent, Lee Kindlon,  the former prosecutor in the US Marine Corps and son of prominent lawyer Terence L. Kindlon. A smart young attorney, G. Calabrese, of the Kindlon law  firm is representing Mr Vadney. Soares has no military record, much less one that comes even close to Lee Kindlon’s brilliant service (read more about Lee Kindlon here). In fact, Soares, apart from his seedy intimacy with the Coeymans police department, has a reputation for being soft on drug crimes (do you really wonder?) and made some comments at a conference in Vancouver, Canada, that angered American law enforcement, attracted criticism from Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings, and harsh comments from the Police Union, including demands for Soares’ resignation. Maybe his softie attitude on drugs and his animosity towards professional (not Coeymans p.d.) law enforcement should get Soares disbarred (see A call for David Soares to resign). He’s had some serious ethical problems and has been reprimanded a number of times. Let’s see, soft on drugs, doesn’t like law enforcement, minority votes. Is there a connection here? Do you think Soares is pandering for his minority votes?

The Coeymanazi Trio of Stooges: Gerald "Dirty-Hands Jerry" Deluca, Jerry's Bleach-Bottle Cathy Deluca, and Matthew "Matt-the-Mutt" MillerA toxic Mix of Police Corruption, Moll and Union Involvement ties in With the Abuse of Public Office and Albany Corruption by D.A. Sore-Ass

The Coeymanazi Trio of Stooges: Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, Jerry’s Bleach-Bottle Cathy Deluca, and Matthew “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller
A toxic Mix of Police Corruption, Moll and Union Involvement ties in With the Abuse of Public Office and Albany Corruption by D.A. Sore-Ass

We’ve reported extensively on all of these characters: the Deluca Duo and Matt-the-Mutt. The Deluca Duo have a long history of Coeymanazi activity. Miller has an axe to grind because the Vadney board refused to renew Miller’s plum double-dipper position as “energy manager” that netted him a cool additional $10–18K a year of taxpayer and school budget money in addition to his outrageous teacher salary and benefits. Miller is the local teacher union, New York State United Teachers a.k.a. NYSUT representative. Miller’s been knocked down to size by the board in recent months, thanks also to superintendent Dr Alan R. McCartney’s zero-tolerance of trouble-makers.

Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” has a colorful history. BoBo Cop allegedly received a degree from SUNY Plattsburg in political science (Do you believe that?) but apparently has no law enforcement or criminal justice education or training that would qualify him for his position as “police investigator” on the Coeymans police department. Apparently also, he’s extremely unpopular with the department, except for his adoring relationship with police chief Gregory Darlington. So why’s he there? Ask thug-collector Gregory “DoDo Cop” Darlington.

Deluca has his fingers in a number of pies, besides Cathy’s. He says in his online résumé that he’s a consultant with ARANY, an automotive recycling organization. He says he’s a consultant with the NY state Department of Environmental Conservation, a principal in Deluca Public Affairs (no pun intended), and a director at the so-called Main Street Small Business Coalition. He also says he was a former employee with the NY state Assembly (No one we contacted at the NY state Assembly knows anything about him, though). But his alleged connections with the DEC and with ARANY (note that bottle-blond Cathy is wearing a pink ARANY sweater in the pix above) raises some questions of conspiracy and misuse of public office, given some of the harassment that has been going on recently of local businesses and residents by the DEC and local officials close to Coeymans town government, especially the town building inspector, Laverne “Larry” Conrad, and others.

So, either Deluca is falsifying his résumé and he is lying about his business contacts or he is telling the truth and is compromising his objectivity as a police employee, and possibly misusing his public position and privileges to benefit his other “business” activities. I say an investigation is in order here and call upon the State Attorney General to investigate Deluca’s “connections.”

Deluca recently made a very disturbing remark at a school board meeting when he allegedly stated that he knew how people voted. (Board of Education Meeting of 3/26/13. Deluca: “Last year there was a number of people on the board that voted for the budget here at the meeting. I am concerned that some of those who voted for it at the meeting went out and voted against it.”) Now how and where would he have access to such information. Isn’t our vote supposed to be secret? Is Deluca misusing police information resources? But how would the police get our voting information? Or is he working with someone else, too? Board president J. Vadney responded: “The board of education approves a budget to go out to the public; the personal votes of the members are personal, confidential, if not secret.” Didn’t you know that BoBo?

But maybe that’s the secret to Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca’s longevity. It’s very possible that Deluca has been misusing his police privileges and access to privileged information all along to access background information and then to use it to his or his friends’ advantage. Now wouldn’t that be a nice fat official investigation. Could send old “Dirty-Hands” down the river for a couple of years. Nah! His bed-buddy Soares probably would get him off with 6-months probation. Maybe he’s got some dirt on Soares?

Is Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca A Dirty Cop?

Is Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca A Dirty Cop?

And then we have the local Coeymanazis and the teachers clique on the RCS Board of Education. You must have noticed that there’s a power war going on between the teachers and the teachers union, New York State United Teachers, represented locally by Matthew J. Miller a.k.a. Matt the Mutt. You can’t have forgotten already the underhanded tactics used by Miller, the Deluca pair, Dirty-Hands Jerry and his Bleach-Bimbo, Cathy Deluca, and you can’t ignore the results of the investigations and the complaints by residents centering on the voting and polling irregularities? You’d have to have advanced Alzheimer disease to have forgotten all of that already, especially with new elections just on the horizon.

So, our guess is that our Albany County D.A. friend, P. David Sore-Ass, is working hand-in-glove with the Coeymanazis and the teachers union, New York State United Teachers (NYSUT, Matt Miller’s godfathers) to attempt to oust Vadney from the BoE. Once Vadney’s gone, they will go after the other members supporting Vadney. When that’s done, your at the mercy of the union and the Coeymanazis. Next, they’ll get rid of Dr McCartney and put one of their puppets in the position. Now the teachers, the teachers union, the Coeymanazis in Ravena-Coeymans, and the Democrat Machine in Albany has control of the schools here, and the school budget. Watch RCS become a ghost town before your very eyes!

You can’t have overlooked the attempts by board members and teachers or teacher’s spouses on the RCS board of election to force other elected board members to resign. Of course, the public saw through those stupid attacks and told Alice Whalen, Howard “Bray” Engel, James Latter, Tracey Traver (former member, not relected), Josephine Tracey-O’Connor (disgraced former BoE member, daughter of Joe Tracey of misdemeanor harassment fame), and Edward “Teddy” Reville, and loudmouths Deluca, and their Coeymanazi mob to “Shut up” and get on with board business! Even Matt-the-Mutt Miller of double-dipping-bully-monger fame has had to curb his union-speak and shut up for once.

They all came out in arms and screaming when they found out Dr Alan R. McCartney was to be hired to fix the mess created by outgoing teachers union lacky Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith. Matt-the-Mutt Miller was frothing in his denunciations of both the Vadney-led board and of Dr McCartney, as were “concerned” parents. Sure, they loved being the bottom feeders of the regional schools with the highest per student cost ($21,000) in the region, maybe even the state, and some of the lowest graduation rates. How dare they consider Dr McCartney, who had Vorheesville’s grad rates up in the high 90’s. They dreaded McCartney. Why? Because he is a professional superintendent hell-bent on getting results and trimming fat. McCartney’s not one of the local teachers, like Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, whose loyalties were clearly not with the residents and taxpayers! (Are you surprised that after having taken the superintendent’s position she stayed long enough to pad her retirement check (less than a year) and then hit the community with a surprise retirement announcement?)

And then there are the loudmouths who have some pretty shadey connections. Take local loudmouth Gerald “Jerry Dirty-Hands Deluca” who, as we mentioned above,  is on the payroll of the Coeymans police department as an “investigator.” Deluca has no police investigator credentials, was fired by the previous police chief, and re-hired by the present Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington (who had to take the chiefs exam at least 3 times before he could pass the thing!). Darlington has also hired local Psycho-Cop Ryan Johnson (a reject from the Cairo p.d.); Johnson’s likely to be the driver of the Coeymans police vehical that races down the road in a bad case of road rage. Darlington also hired his brother-in-law Kerry Thompson to be his personal admin assistant at more than $31/hour, and who employs a number of part-timers from outside the community to police this community.

If you’ve ever driven in the town of Coeymans and seen a police vehicle coming from the opposite direction and can’t stay on its side of the road, or if you see a Coeymans police  vehicle with its wheels in the air, you’re also likely to see a blond female behind the wheel. That’s Coeymans police officer D. Crosier–drives like a drunk, crossing the centerline, migrating over to the shoulder, occasionally wrecking a Coeymans police vehicle. She’s another prize bimbo addition to Darlington’s credit.

Stop This Brew Before It Infects You, Too!

Stop This Brew Before It Infects You, Too!

Add to this toxic stew the unbelievable involvement of local Coeymans town attorney Gregory Teresi (Dem), son of NY state Supremse Court judge Joseph Teresi (Dem)  (formerly a village and town attorney in Ravena-Coeymans), the corrupt practices in the village of Ravena government with its incestuous relationships and intermarriages between village trustees and town and village justices, the involvement of the shyster family of Biscones and their former partners the Rotellos, who is now working with the NY state Appellate Divison, the NY state court that hears appeals and is in charge of attorney discipline. Then you have the real-estate moguls and their connections in village and town government and the abuse of public office that goes on between the town of Coeymans, the office of the building inspector, and the DEC, and you can’t but hold back the vomit.

weeping liberty 1

Yes, there’s a very toxic stew brewing, as you can see. There’s Albany County Democrat Machine Corruption, local corruption in the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans, and then there’s union involvement with the New York State United Teachers.

We eased off the scoundrels in recent months because they seemed to be quieting down but they’ve been quietly hatching plots. Crooks never give up because they’re infected with the worm of greed and avarice. They’re lousy with the lice of pride. But they’re blind to their own evil and that’s where we get them.
