The Cabin Fever Reliever with Your Valentine!

Saturday, February 15, 2020, is a really special date. Mark you calendar!

Visit the Greene County Weasels blog!

We have a February Committee meeting coming up on Saturday, February 15, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. at the Red Rooster Roadhouse in Cairo, NY. Following that meeting there’ll be a buffet dinner dance on a special theme starting at about 5:00 p.m. There’ll be food and music and lots of fun! Please plan to be there and bring some friends! Pack the house! Show those crusty Republicans and those mushy Democrats how real Americans party, and thumb their noses to Old Man Winter’s Cabin Fever, and party with your Valentine’s Day heartthrob!

The Independence Party committee meetings are warm and welcoming and tend to be much more interesting than what you might think. The members welcome everyone, literally everyone with no question about political party affiliation and no pressure to listen to political rubbish. Party business is handled during the meetings; party partying is serious business and takes place after the meetings.

The Red Rooster Road House is a great place with good food, great bar, pool tables, and great hospitality. We first learned of the Red Rooster Roadhouse when some readers of our reviews of local Sunday brunch venues told us not to waste our time anywhere else, and to try the all-you-can-eat brunch buffet for only $9.95 + tax. Our readers never fail us and the advice was great — so was the brunch and the hospitality. Our only problem was the GPS directions. Our best advice is to go straight out of Main St. in Cairo, leaving the hamlet, for about a mile and the Red Rooster is on your left.

Greene County Independence Party Chairman Mr George Acker will be posting details on the Greene County NY Independence Party Facebook site and we’ll ask the Greene Weasel Whackers to post the information.

Remember: All politics, good and bad, start in the home. It’s time we started changing business as usual by starting in our own backyards. We are people, individuals, and independent of corrupt politics and corrupt politicians. That’s why we have the principles of the Independence Party.

Support the Greene County New York Independence Party

Take the first steps to improving our communities, neighborhoods, and lives by getting involved in positive political activity and forget the idiotic labels people have been conditioned to wear as if they were badges of merit! Those labels make you less than you are and less than you can be!

Don’t let Old Man Winter’s Cabin Fever get ya! Party with the Greene Independents on February 15, 2020!


On a more serious note:

We were totally disgusted by many of the local elections and what went on. The major parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, were a complete disappointment in Coeymans, Cairo, New Baltimore, and so many other municipalities. We weren’t going to let the label-voters take the fun out of the holidays, though, and we didn’t want to sour yours by publishing the disgusting facts about what went on in Coeymans,

The State Independence Party Committee and the Albany County Independence Party Committee under Chairman Paul Caputo (who is also a State Committee vice-chairman) put themselves in our sights when the State Party Committee endorsed failed Greene County Sheriff candidate Diana Benoit, after she played her losing hand to get on the ballot in Greene County. She lost and is now tainted goods. The State Committee is going to have to come clean on that one, as will Mr Paul Caputo, Albany County Independence Party Chairman.

What’s worse still, and a double whammy for Caputo is the fact that his Albany County Committee actually backed the McHugh neonazi mobsters in Coeymans, totally ignoring the Democratic incumbents.

Caputo’s Friends in Coeymans


The 2019 Wicked Weasel Award goes to Paul Caputo

Paul Caputo of the Albany County Independence Party Committee has received the unanimous nomination as the recipient of the 2019 Golden Weasel Award. Shame on you, Pauli!

Awarded to Paul Caputo for Shady Weasel Dealing.


 

Here’s what we wrote to the NY State Independence Party Committee:

We are contacting you on behalf of the Smalbany Blog (https://w/smalbanynewyork.wordpress.com), a widely read social and political comment and information site with more than 500,000 readers.

The recent elections in November 2019 were nothing less than a display of non-support, dirty politics, and neonazi bullying in several municipalities in the Capital Region of New York.

One of the most disgusting and shameful displays was in the Town of Coeymans where Republican George McHugh and his mob obtained the support of the Albany County Independence Party, while in several other communities in Greene County, meritorious candidates languished while the Democrats ignored their candidates and the State Independence Party Committee (where was Mr Caputo?) and sister ID chairs and committees around Greene County were non-supportive of the Greene County Independence Party Committee.

Then there was the debacle of Diana Benoit, who ignored the Greene County Independence Party Committee and pulled some county (Albany) state vice-chair’s (Paul Caputo’s?) strings to get the State committee’s endorsement, but was given the thumbs down when she appeared before the Greene County Committee to explain and to apologize. She lost her own party’s (Republican) support and that of the Greenes; she pursued a dead campaign and managed to lose miserably in the elections. Payback!

With that preface, we would like the Greene Co. Committee’s comments on what went on and how Greene would like the State Committee to do to heal the wounds and establish good faith with local chairs and their committees, particularly in Greene County.

We are also looking at the role of sister committees and some questionable conduct by County IP chairs in counties neighboring Greene.

We will be running a series of articles during the month of January on what we have learned but would like to know what the Greene Committee and other neighboring Independence Party County Committees are prepared to do to support counties like Greene, and to compel Albany County and the State Independence Party Committee to give an accounting on how and why they supported the Republicans and ignored the Democratic incumbents.

All responses will be treated as confidential. Please reply to the the attention of the Editor at rcs.confidential@gmail.com.

We’ve also posted a request on the Greene County Independence Party Facebook page asking for committee and party members to come forward with what information they may have on the back-room politics that went on and screwed good candidates as well as the residents and taxpayers in so many communities.

We wholly and completely support the third parties like the Independence Party, particularly those dedicated and caring people in Greene County who are doing all they can to support good candidates and do the best for the people. That’s a hell of a lot more than we can say the Republican Party and Democratic Party committees in Albany and Green Counties have done even for their own people!

The only smart choice left for us!

Information on the Poop Senders Investigation

Since some — actually quite a few — crimes seem to get swept under the carpet or lost completely by incompetent investigators in Coeymans, and selectively prosecuted — depending on who you are or whom you know — by the Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares,  we thought we’d help this one along. This case is so obscene, it has to be thoroughly investigated and the perps identified, apprehended, prosecuted, sentenced, and publicly shamed!

Read the first article on this case at: Coeymans Only Gets Sicker; Criminal Perps Being Investigated

Can Contento handle the case? We doubt it!
Better call in the Girl Scouts; they’ll do a better job!


Can Law Enforcement, Coeymans Police and the Albany County DA even spell the word?


A note from the Editor:

It’s always best to take affirmative steps to protect yourself and your family against criminals and criminal activity. Terror and terrorists come in any number of packages and flavors, some foreign, others domestic. Here are some tips from the FBI:

Section 802 of the USA PATRIOT Act (Pub. L. No. 107-52) expanded the definition of terrorism to cover “”domestic,”” as opposed to international, terrorism. A person engages in domestic terrorism if they do an act “dangerous to human life” that is a violation of the criminal laws of a state or the United States, if the act appears to be intended to: (i) intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; recently engaged in activities that could subject them to being investigated as engaging in domestic terrorism.

How Citizens Can Protect Themselves and Report Suspicious Activity

It is important for people to protect themselves both online and in-person, and to report any suspicious activity they encounter. The simplest ways to accomplish this are to:

  • Remain aware of your surroundings.
  • Refrain from oversharing personal information.
  • Say something if you see something. The insular nature of today’s violent extremists makes them difficult for law enforcement to identify and disrupt before an attack. Many times, a person’s family or friends may be the first to notice a concerning change in behavior that may indicate a person is mobilizing to violence.

The Facts

On or about November 13, 2019, a person or persons yet to be identified, made a purchase from the online vendor poopsenders.com, and caused to be mailed via the United States Postal Service, at least 5 packages containing feces of an unspecified species, to addresses in the Town of Coeymans.

This sums up the perps.
Poop-in-a-Bag

The Vendor[1]

The seller of the product sent by first class mail via the United States Postal Service operates a business from an Internet site at poopsenders.com, and offers for sale a variety of animal by-products, namely, feces, which for payment the company will send by United States Postal Service, to recipients, whose names and addresses are provided by the purchaser of the product, namely animal feces.

The seller of the product packages the product for shipment but does not indicate on the shipping container that the container contains hazardous, dangerous, or offensive material.

The container containing the product is sent in a plain white envelope with no indication of its contents, and is apparently mailed via general mail-handling channels. The package shows a tracking number, which can be used to track the package en route, up to the point of delivery of the package.

The seller’s Internet site clearly states on its home page that their product is:

  • The Ultimate Gag Gift
  • “Sweet Revenge At Its Finest
  • “Guaranteed Anonymous”

The words in that description “gag,” “revenge,” “anonymous” are key to an understanding of the intent and purpose of the product.

The Seller’s Guarantee[2]

The seller allegedly promises that the purchaser/sender will remain “guaranteed anonymous,” that Poop Senders will “NOT” let the recipient know who sent the package, and even offers a cash payment option to avoid tracing the purchase. In that same section Poop Senders acknowledges that the product they will send will be “a healthy heap of some of the nastiest, stinkiest, fresh poop packages that anyone has ever seen.” The seller finishes with the statement, “We will never tell.” Well, both Poop Senders and their clients are in for a big surprise!

ONLY COWARDS DO IT ANONYMOUSLY

The Seller’s Reasons for Sending their Product[3]

The seller lists at least ten (10) reasons for sending their product:

  1. For your ex
  2. Neighbors pet crapping on your lawn
  3. For your mean boss
  4. For a salesperson or mechanic that ripped you off
  5. A Last minute gift for someone who has everything
  6. A gag gift
  7. For that rich gloating friend, knock them down a peg
  8. To the teacher that gave your son/daughter a poor grade
  9. Some one left you a negative review or feedback
  10. You just don’t like them

At least eight (8) out of the ten (10) reasons for sending the seller’s product are obviously with the intent to punish, intimidate, offend, alarm, or otherwise annoy the recipient; in other words, at least eight (8) out of ten (10) reasons published by the seller are for the ostensible purpose of harassing the recipient.

The seller publishes on their website testimonials that are obviously meant to emphasize the adverse intent of the product. Examples of some of the statements made include:[4]

  • “This is a gift that every asshole neighbor should get.”
  • “I sent one to my jackass brother in law and the whole family found out about it and they are all teasing him. He doesn’t know who it came from. He’s so pissed off its great.”
  • ‘[I] have already sent out 3 “poop packages” and the shit is just starting to fly.”

The published “testimonials” published on the seller’s website clearly prove that the seller is aware of the intentions of the individuals purchasing their product and clearly uses that information as a motivation for purchasing the product, that is, for the purpose of punishing, intimidating, offending, alarming, or otherwise annoying the recipient.

The fact that the seller emphasizes the value of anonymity in perpetrating the harassment is further proof of the seller’s intent to facilitate the commission of the criminal behavior by the purchaser, and not only facilitates the commission of the unlawful and criminal acts but explicitly encourages the commission of the unlawful and criminal acts.

The seller uses anonymity or the guarantee of anonymity to further promote the sale and purchase of their product, thus accomplishing the purpose of selling their product by encouraging unlawful and asocial behavior in persons who may be prone to such behavior but would avoid the behavior out of a fear of social shame if found out; the promise of anonymity claims to remove the risk of shame, and so removes a powerful deterrent to asocial and unlawful conduct, thus encouraging, promoting, and facilitating such conduct.

The price ranges from 1 quart of cow dung for $17.95 + $9.95 S/H to $249.95 + 19.95 S/H for a 5-lb special package. The package sent to the Coeymans recipients are believed to be 1 quart cow dung packages ($17.95 + $9.95).

Criminals at the Computer.

The seller’s FAQs further confirm their encouragement of anonymity as well as the offensive nature of the product they offer:

“Does it have to be anonymous?
“Yes. We guarantee it. Now if you want to wait about a week after ordering your package and call or e-mail that special someone and ask them if they just got a special package that is up to you, but rest assured we will never tell. Want to be extra careful? Pay with our cash option where you mail in the order form (or just number) and payment.”

“Is it real poop?
“Only the mad scientist that packs this stuff in the back room knows for sure and he wouldn’t tell us, but we do know this, it really smells bad back there, he is mixing up shit, and he does visit the local dairy farm and zoo about twice a week. (We also don’t want the delivery company to actually know what kind of shit they’re delivering.) We can assure you that it looks nasty and really stinks. It will get the point across to your intended victim.”

The seller provides legal advice, although they are not attorneys, as to the legality of their operations and practices.

“Is this legal?
“Yes and we’ve been in business since 2007. Sending an anonymous non-hazardous package through the US Postal Service is indeed legal. Please review our legal page for more information.

What do you expect them to tell you? That it’s illegal maybe? The statement in the above FAQ is misleading because it states a truth but in a misleading manner, because animal feces is hazardous both physically and psychologically, and the seller is sending such material through the United States Postal Service.


Synopsis of the Criminality of the Act

Poop Senders and their Customers misuse the USPS in the Commission of Criminal Acts.

The vendor, Poop Senders, is misinforming the public by stating that what they and their customers are engaging in is legal. It is NOT. Poop Senders clearly and explicitly states that their product is intended to annoy, offend, irritate, disgust, intimidate the recipient of the product. Poop Senders provides examples of situations in which customers can use their product for the purpose of “revenge.” Testimonials are provided which clearly and explicitly state that the purpose underlying purchase of the product was to annoy, intimidate, disgust, or offend the recipient. Poop Senders literally guarantees the effect of disgust, offensiveness, annoyance, intimidation. Anonymity is offered to prevent their customers from public shame and, ostensibly, to avoid prosecution — in other words, Poop Senders is conspiring to aid in concealing the commission of a crime, and so facilitate their customers in the commission of an unlawful act. Poop Senders, by their own statements, provides clear evidence that their product is intended to harass or to harm the recipient. Poop Senders uses the USPS to effect these purposes. These purposes are clearly described as harassment in the penal/criminal codes of both New York and Pennsylvania. Therefore, Poop Senders is using the USPS to perpetrate a criminal act; Poop Senders‘ customers are availing themselves of Poop Senders‘ guarantee of the desired effects and are therefore employing Poop Senders to commit an unlawful act, a criminal act in both New York and Pennsylvania — misdemeanor harassment —, a criminal act across state lines, an interstate criminal act, using the USPS as the effective vehicle to consummate the act. The Internet is being used as the medium over which the directions for the commission of the crime are being transmitted. Poop Senders is cooperating with the purchaser for payment for the commission of a criminal act.

OK, Law Enforcement, USPS Inspection Division, what is it you don’t understand?
SHIT IS HAZARDOUS, BIO-HAZARDOUS!!!


Moreover, despite the clear and conspicuous intent of the seller’s product and the content of the testimonials, which explicitly state the unlawful intent of the product, the seller provides a “disclaimer,” which does not eliminate the seller’s liability and would have no legal effect given the overwhelming evidence of the seller’s intent and the purchasers’ stated intended effects in the testimonials section of the website.

The Unlawful, Illegal, and Asocial Nature of the Product

We believe that the seller knowingly sells a product whose sole purpose and intent is to annoy, alarm, intimidate, offend the recipient of the product. That intent is clearly stated by the seller to be “revenge,” and the seller explicitly lists at least ten examples of situations in which the clear intent of sending the product is to punish, annoy, intimidate, offend, etc. the recipient for no objectively lawful purpose.

The contents of the package is animal feces, that is, an animal waste product that is potentially hazardous to the health and well-being not only of the recipient but also of the USPS employees handling or coming in contact with the package. The product is hazardous.

The postal service employees and the recipient are not provide with due notice of the nature of the contents and are therefore knowingly put at risk by both the seller/sender and the purchaser of the product.

The sending of hazardous or potentially hazardous material via the United States Postal Service is a priori unlawful and criminal, unless there is compliance with the relevant regulations. There is no evidence of any compliance whatsoever. The sending of hazardous or potentially hazardous material via the United States Postal Service with the clear intention of committing a crime is egregiously and aggravatingly criminal.

Given the clear and explicit statements of the seller on their website, the product’s primary intention is to annoy, intimidate, offend, or otherwise elicit an adverse reaction in the recipient; the seller guarantees that effect in order to encourage the purchaser to purchase the seller’s product for the ostensible purpose of annoying, offending, intimidating, or, as stated in the seller’s published material, as “revenge.” The purchaser purchases the seller’s product with the intent of eliciting the guaranteed effects.

The seller further entraps the potential purchaser by ensuring anonymity.

The seller states they they “ship only to [sic] the Continental United States.” The seller ships via the USPS across state lines, that is, engages in interstate commerce of hazardous or potentially hazardous materials. In the present case, the seller shipped across state borders, that is, from a location in Pennsylvania to locations in New York state.

The Criminal Codes of New York State and the State of Pennsylvania

Both New York and Pennsylvania have in their Criminal Codes provisions describing the crime of harassment.

The New York State criminal code, NY Penal L § 240.30, describes the crime of misdemeanor aggravated harassment as

“240.30 Aggravated harassment in the second degree.

A person is guilty of aggravated harassment in the second degree when, with intent to harass, annoy, threaten or alarm another person, he or she:
she:
Either (a) communicates with a person, anonymously or otherwise, by telephone, by telegraph, or by mail, or by transmitting or delivering any other form of written communication, in a manner likely to cause annoyance or alarm; or

(b) causes a communication to be initiated by mechanical or electronic means or otherwise with a person, anonymously or otherwise, by telephone, by telegraph, or by mail, or by transmitting or delivering any other form of written communication, in a manner likely to cause annoyance or alarm.

The Pennsylvania criminal code, Title 18, § 2709. Harassment.

(a) Offense defined.–A person commits the crime of harassment when, with intent to harass, annoy or alarm another, the person:
(3) engages in a course of conduct or repeatedly commits acts which serve no legitimate purpose;
(4) communicates to or about such other person any lewd, lascivious, threatening or obscene words, language, drawings or caricatures;
(5) communicates repeatedly in an anonymous manner;

The seller and the purchaser of the seller’s product have perpetrated and committed or have caused to be perpetrated or committed, or are accessories to the perpetration or commission of misdemeanor harassment under the criminal statutes of both New York and Pennsylvania.

The Primary Suspects

As in any investigation, an investigator must take into consideration motive, motivation, purpose, intent, knowledge, pattern, previous conduct, etc. and form a list of persons who would be most likely to perpetrate the unlawful acts.

Given the contentious conduct of the Comeback Team candidates and their close association and alliances with the so-called Friends of Coeymans principals, we feel that the following individuals are and should be considered primary suspects in the present situation:

The Whole Community Knows Who is Behind This Atrocity!

Boomer

Nathan P. Boomer (Friends of Coeymans)
212 Biechman Road
Ravena, NY 12046

Hagen

Christopher J. Hagen (Friends of Coeymans)
32 Lindskoog Road
Alcove, NY 12007

LaQuire

Jeffrey Laquire (Friends of Coeymans)
11 Albright Court
Ravena, NY 12143

Collins

Zachary Collins (Comeback Team)
898 Route 143
[Coeymans Hollow]
Ravena, NY 12143

Lefevre

Brendan Lefevre (Comeback Team)
250 Buschendorf Road
[Coeymans Hollow, Parent’s Basement]
Ravena, New York 12143

McHugh

George D. McHugh (Comeback Team)
100 Lawson Lake Road
Feura Bush, NY 12067

The tactics and publications of the principals, organizers, and administrators of the Friends of Coeymans, serve to evidence that the purchase and sending of the packages in question is not something that can be easily or otherwise ruled out, since such conduct would be easily presumed from the group’s paste and ongoing practices and tactics. Such harassment would be completely in the character and repertoire of the group given their pattern of harassment, bullying, disruption, degradation, and annoyance of persons, whom they have targeted.

And NO! The Comeback Team does not have a mandate from the “People;” they have only the votes of their supporters. That’s all. After the pre-election antics and the performances of the Coeymans Clowns, the so-called Friends of Coeymans, most of the People stayed safely home; the beasts, the Fiends of Coeymans were out, and a few stalwart citizens defied the neonazis and made their way to the polls, only to be harassed afterwards. Let’s admit the truth!

Given the close association and the support derived by the so-called Comeback Team, that is, the candidates in the most recent local elections, George McHugh, Zachary Collins, and Brendan Lefevre, their knowledge of and concealment of the unlawful conduct of the primary suspects cannot be ruled out.

Law Enforcement Investigation of the Criminal Activities

The Coeymans Police Department has been notified, and the victims who received the offending packages at Coeymans Town Hall have turned over the packages received at Coeymans Town Hall to the Coeymans Police for investigation.

Have the Coeymans Police Interviewed the Friends of Coeymans or the Comeback Team?

Given the current state of facts in the Town of Coeymans, we expect that the Coeymans Police have called at least the primary suspects in for questioning; furthermore, we expect that in the interest of efficient police work, the members of the Comeback Team have been interviewed and questioned as to their knowledge of any facts relevant to the unlawful acts.

We expect that any interviews or interrogations have been duly documented for the record as part of the investigation process.

The Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares, as the chief law-enforcement officer in the County of Albany, must be informed and an investigation initiated through his office.

The Allegheny District Attorney, Stephen A. Zappala, Jr., should be notified and his office requested to collaborate with the office of the Albany County DA, in the investigation of the seller’s activities in Pennsylvania. The offices of Albany County and Allegheny County DA must collaborate and cooperate in a joint effort to identify, apprehend, and prosecute the offenders in this case.

The United States Postal Service Inspection Divisions responsible for and competent in Albany County (NY) and Allegheny County (PA) must be notified and requested to assist in the investigation of the unlawful conduct in this case. The Coeymans Police Department must be proactive in requesting the assistance of the United States Postal Service Inspection Division.

The perpetrators, both the seller and the purchaser(s) of the product(s), must be charged with various counts of criminal activity including but not limited to, misdemeanor harassment under the criminal codes of New York and Pennsylvania, violations of interstate commerce, violations of the USPS regulations regarding the use of the mail (1) to send hazardous or dangerous materials and (2) the use of the United States Postal Service and the mail in the commission of a crime, endangerment of the health and safety of not only the recipients of the packages but also of the USPS employees handling the packages or coming in contact with the packages.

THAT’S WHAT YOU ARE, SICKO-S!

Coeymans: Poster-Child of the “Sick Community Syndrome.” Part II

Escape from the abusers and their abuse is not the case in all communities. As was conspicuous and obvious, the abusers repeatedly go to extremes to prevent the victim from taking action or garnering support. In fact, confronting an abuser is the most dangerous time for victims of community violence.

There’s a great many similarities shared by victims of sick communities and victims of domestic violence, as we’ll show in this multi-part article. In fact, one study found in interviews with persons who were involved in violence against their partners that either threats of action by their partner or actual action were most often the precipitating events that lead to the violence.

Violence is any Human Action that Causes Harm to the Life or Dignity of Another Person.

Think about this: Most Christian denominations teach doctrines of Social Justice, which includes concepts of fair and just relations between the individual and society, and moral custodianship of the environment.. Social Justice is measured by the explicit and tacit terms for the distribution of wealth, opportunities for personal activity, and social privileges, and relationship with the rest of creation. Social justice covers a wide range of definitions, so I’ll refer you to What is “Social Justice”? – A collection of definitions.

We all work hard and strive for what we understand to be social justice, at least we want to appear to be doing that. Right? So what must we think when we have elected officials who stand up before the public, at Town Board meetings, and invoke the name of God and Jesus Christ, praying for guidance and inspiration during the meeting — while praying to an inanimate object, the flag, in a pledge of allegiance, a form of idolatry —. Isn’t that hypocrisy in its most visible, most toxic form? (Am I thinking of Kenneth Burns, the Coeymans town councilman who publicly stands up an offers public prayer before the Coeymans Town Board proceeds to Town business? And isn’t Mr Burn’s a supporter of the Coeymans Comeback Team, recently elected to Town Supervisor and now dominating the Coeymans Town Board? Mr Burns, along with his Republican colleagues, represents the worst blasphemy and hypocrisy locally available!)

Social Justice is also a Victim in the Sick Community.

Understand what Violence and Abuse is!

It’s important to understand that violence does not have to be physical to be violence, but all violence is traumatic and abusive. For our purposes we define violence as as any human action that causes harm to the life or dignity, or the rights and pursuit of happiness of another person. For example, while violence may take physical forms, it may be inflicted through verbal abuse, psychological tactics including intimidation, bullying, violation of social boundaries, and degrading a person or a group, or harassment in its many forms. Violence can also take the form of manipulation, either through word or deed.

Violence and abuse are frequently used interchangeably, and for general purposes that’s perfectly OK. But to be clear, we’d like to suggest that abuse includes not only physical abuse, but verbal abuse, emotional and psychological abuse, social abuse, and even sexual abuse. While some violence is morally sanctioned, such as in so-called just war or even self-defense, abuse is never justified in the moral or ethical senses.

Violence may also include gender abuse. Violence and abuse represent the most obvious — and effective — ways a person or a group can establish power and control over others. The violence and abuse is intended to seize and maintain control over the victim, and limits or removes the victims ability to make personal choices, their access to resources or services, or deprives them of their dignity, autonomy, or self-determination.’

When we use the term “victim” we mean any person or group of persons who are subjected to any form of violence or abuse. In other words, a victim may be an individual person, a group of persons, a part of an entire community, or an entire community, even a nation.

How did one small town, Coeymans, manage to get so many schizoids, liars, blasphemers, and hypocrites?

It is not uncommon to find media, especially local or regional media such as radio, television, Internet information sources, and law enforcement aiding and abetting the abusers, further depriving the victims of access to reliable information and to equal protections under the law. But information abuse is a particularly insidious and loathsome form of abuse, because it deprives the victims of reliable and factual information upon which to base their important personal and community decisions. Misinformation, disinformation, malinformation, and lies are all forms of abuse, and they are also a form of violence because they harm people and their dignitay as human beings.

Why, then, do victims accept such oppression, deprivation, and why do they stay in such a situation?

A victim’s reasons for allowing a violent and abusive situation to continue, for remaining in that situation, and allowing their abusers to continue their violence and abuse are extremely complex and, in most cases, are based on the reality that their abuser will follow through with the real of perceived threats or actions they have used to keep their victims trapped: the victim fears that abuser has the power to cause harm to them or those close to them. The harm doesn’t have to be physical harm, although it can lead to that, but may take the form of labeling, isolation, bullying of the victims’ children, harm to pets, financial or economic harm, deprivation of services normally provided to residents such as police protection, injustice in the courts, etc. The list of violence and abuse can go on and on, but you get the point.

As in domestic violence situations, the victims of sick community abuse know their abuser, they’re neighbors or former friends, and the victim fully knows the extent to which they will go to make sure they have and can maintain control over the victim. The victim literally may not be able to safely escape or protect themselves, their loved ones, their friends, or their jobs and property. Again, referring to a domestic violence study of intimate partner homicides found 20% of homicide victims were not the domestic violence victims themselves, but family members, friends, neighbors, persons who intervened, law enforcement or first responders, or even innocent bystanders!

Obstacles to Escaping Sick-Community Violence and Abuse

Some obstacles to escaping sick-community violence and abuse that you might want to give some thought to include:

  • The fear and anxiety that the abuser’s behavior and actions will become more violent and abusive the victim opposes them or fights back.
  • Unsupportive neighbors, friends and public servants; neighbors and friends may avoid supporting the victim, especially if law enforcement and public servants are part of the problem or are indifferent to the situation.
  • Knowledge of the difficulties of living apart from the majority and possible reduced financial opportunities, even loss of livelihood.
  • The victim feeling that the situation in the sick community is a mix of good times, support and hope, even though there is the looming threat of manipulation, intimidation and fear.
  • The victim’s lack of information about or access to safety and support services, a situation that is frequently caused by and aided by the abusers.
  • The victim’s ignorance of his civil and guaranteed rights under the Constitution and laws.
  • Fear that the abuser, the members of the abusing group, or even the children of the abusers will physically abuse, bully, or otherwise harm the victims’ children
  • Lack of means to defend themselves and/or their children or lack of access to support services.
  • Nowhere else to go, no local friends or family to help, insufficient financial resources to leave the violence or abuse situation.
  • Fear that hardship may be their only option for themselves and their loved ones if they leave
  • Belief in community relationships, and that stability, friends, schools, organizations, neighborhoods, etc. are better for children, despite abuse

No McHugh, Comeback Team, Carver Connection? C’mon!

The huge illuminated flashing sign shown below is positioned at the entrance to the Port of Coeymans and Coeymans Industrial Park. You are hit with it when entering the Hamlet from the North. Now, people, is there someone out there who is going to tell me that there’s no McHugh-Comeback Team connection with Carver Laraway and Carver Companies? McHugh has already stated publicly that he will continue to accept legal work from Carver, even if elected to be Supervisor! Now doesn’t that tell you the real story behind McHugh’s desperate need to be Supervisor?


We apologize, but because of lighting the text on the sign is difficult to capture. But we don’t know how anyone can miss it when approaching the Hamlet. It reads “Vote for McHugh, Collins, Lefevre, Langdon tomorrow.”

How desperate can they get?

 

George McHugh: Dishonorable Scoundrel! How Dare You!!!

George McHugh goes far beyond just being a liar and a crook. He’s lower than a snake’s belly. It wasn’t enough that he lies through his teeth on unimportant issues because he’s ignorant, and a greedy bastard. We could almost stomach his total lack of scruples and serious problems with the truth but his most recent lie shows the man has no character at all. He’d dirtier than dirt.

After the First Lie, Everything Else is a Lie

On September 11, 2001, forever to be known as 9/11, the American people experienced the most horrendous act of terrorism to have happened in the American Homeland ever. The death toll was 2,996, not including deaths related to the aftermath of the tragedy. Perhaps we’ll never know the total suffering that came into American lives on that September morning!

Scenes of Unimaginable Horror and Suffering

Anyone Who Would Lie about His Military Service and Connect that with the Incredibly Tragic Deaths on September 11, 2001, should be Tarred, Feathered, Run Out of Town on His Bare Ass!

There were heroes made on September 11, 2001, real heroes. Firefighters, police, first responders, clergy, Joe and Jane Average, who went in risking their lives, some of them losing their lives in acts of pure heroism!

The real-life heroes of September 11, 2001

What kind of person would lie about why he didn’t run for a second term. Worse still: Why would he try to make himself into a war hero by lying and then trying to cash in on the emotions associated with 9/11. We’ll tell you what kind of worthless piece of crap: George McHugh!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Real men in uniform, facing death and horrible injury in a place far from home, suffering every kind of suffering in the field

All of you morons who are flocking around this phony so adoringly had better wake up and see the rat that he is.

You don’t have to believe us. Worse still, you don’t have to believe McHugh’s media whore, the Ravena News Herald, or its whatever editor, Kate Lisa, much less McHugh’s long-time friend, buddy and puppet, Mark Vinciguerra. We’ll get to Carver Laraway and Billy Biers in an upcoming exposé but right now, we have to take care of the arch-scoundrel, liar, phony, and fake-patriot, George McHugh.

If you received this McHugh campaign card…

Read this very carefully:

Any man who associates lies with a national tragedy and the uniform is a disgrace!

After the first lie, everything else is a lie!

Perhaps the News Herald should check their facts before printing the weasel-words of a lying shyster, George McHugh. Had the News Herald checked their own archives, they would have found the very same thing we found when we checked back issues of the News Herald, in our research as to Why? McHugh didn’t run for re-election after his single term as Coeymans Town supervisor. But truth don’t figure in fake news, do they. And, hell, when you’ve got the Friends of Coeymans doing your dirty propaganda work for you, abusing honest and community-minded citizens, why would you need the truth?

In May 2001

McHugh says one term enough” (Thursday May 10, 2001, Gene Levy)

“Coeymans – Saying he needs more time to devote to his family and law practice, George McHugh announced last Friday he will not seek a second term as supervisor.

McHugh made his thoughts known in an open letter to town residents that will appear in this week’s News-Herald.

“I’ve given vigilant service to the town. I also need to be a good husband and father and look after an expanding law practice.”

“I’m still hoping I can help bring about one hall for the village and town, which would be the village hall,” he said.”

Ravena News Herald, Thursday, May 10, 2001: Letters to the Editor: “Open letter from the Town Supervisor,” McHugh himself writes, confirming what was reported in the Levy article:

“With a growing law practice and a young family, I do not feel that I can continue to perform the duties and responsibilities of the office of Supervisor for a second term to the level at which the position requires.”

McHugh’s a moral mess! He can’t keep a family intact; how is he going to keep a community intact?

Just another bloodsucking attorney in town.

Well, half of McHugh’s plans were real: he kept his law practice going. But even more troubling than another blood-sucking attorney in town is the really disturbing fact that McHugh is such a failure at family. Isn’t family one of the touted Republican values? Family values. You’ve heard that expression before, haven’t you? He’s had four freakin’ marriages to date. Now, admittedly, some marriages are doomed to failure for very understandable reasons. Anyone can fail in a very early marriage, but most people hold out for a lifetime, working, sharing, etc. How can a man who has gone through four marriages ever hope to persuade normal people that he has anything worth salvaging, anything honestly worthwhile. The man’s a moral mess! He can’t keep a family intact; how is he going to keep a community intact?  We’ll we already have the answer to that: McHugh and his Coeymanazi Clowns are tearing the community apart just like McHugh apparently tore his families and marriages apart.

If you can’t keep a marriage together, how are you going to keep a community together, McHugh?

March 2019

McHugh’s story changes in 2019, when he is quoted by the News-Herald’s Melanie Lekocevic, in a front-page article, “McHugh at top of Coeymans Republican ticket”  (Ravena News Herald, Thursday, March 7, 2019), in which McHugh is quoted:

Lekecovic writes in her article, “But when 9/11 took place, McHugh said other responsibilities took priority,” and Lekocevic quotes McHugh:

The first and foremost reason I didn’t run for reelection was Sept. 11, 2001.” McHugh said, “As an army officer the operations tempo got considerably greater and I did not think I could do justice to both the town and my country, so I did not seek re-election. I don’t regret that move.”

So, on or before May 10, 2001, fully 4 months almost to the day prior to the events of September 11, 2001, Mr. McHugh announced his decision not to run for re-election for the office of Coeymans Town Supervisor. The News Herald article and McHugh’s own letter to the editor, give as his reasons that he wanted to devote more time to family and to his law practice. Both good reasons at the time but McHugh doesn’t mention 9/11 as one of his reasons. Perhaps because 9/11 was four months to the day in the future!

So here’s where we get a taste of McHugh’s real lack of character, and his misuse of any noble military service or patriotism: In a front-page article announcing McHugh’s candidacy for Town Supervisor in 2019, McHugh now claims that the reason he chose not to run for re-election in 2001 was “first and foremost…was September 11, 2001,” and that he “could not do justice to both the town and my country.” The man’s a bare-faced liar! And he’s playing everyone in Coeymans for the fool!

No honorable officer in the United States Army, National Guard twerp or not, would ever stoop so low as to misrepresent himself, to dishonor the dead of 9/11, to dishonor the real heroes of 9/11, to dishonor the real combat soldiers of Afghanistan and their dead, by trying to spin his reasons for not having sought re-election, and turn 9/11 into political capital and use 9/11 to fraudulently make himself look better. How can someone want political office so badly to act so dishonorably. How can anyone with any conscience, any sense of patriotism, any feeling or sympathy for the dead, the suffering, and the heroes of 911, stomach even looking at George McHugh, a piece of s**t that has dishonored his community, his uniform, his Republican party, and his country by his lies.

If any of you rabid McHugh fans doubt anything we’ve written here, you or your neighbors have received the campaign card. The RCS Community Library has the back editions of the Ravena News Herald, so you can see for yourselves. You might want to ask Kate Lisa, the editor of the Ravena News Herald, or Mark Vinciguerra, the publisher of the News Herald why they published McHugh’s lies in the first place. Why didn’t they check their own archive. We did!!!

And we’ve got more, much more on McHugh, his keepers LaFarge, Carver Laraway, Billy Biers, Daniel D. Baker (sitting board member and McHugh mole on the Town Board; he’s the one who wanted to appoint Nate Boomer to be on the Planning Board, and wouldn’t listen when the Town Lawyer told him he couldn’t do that because there were no vacancies. DUH!). We’ll publish the rest of the dirt in a week or so. This really couldn’t wait!!!

Now you’ve really pissed me off, McHugh!

Please don’t Mug Me! Just Pot Me!

Think: FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!

Curaleaf: Jordan Laraway McHugh KREMLIN !?!

We can’t produce fresh fruit or vegetables that aren’t rotten when we buy them or are rotten two days in the fridge, or we have to import them from Mexico or Canada, but we can build, maintain, and secure cannabis pot facilities all over the place!

Import Rotten Food but Grow Fresh Pot Locally.
Isn’t that just plain crazy?

Coeymans’ Very Own Russian Connection
The Alien – Jordan – McHugh – Laraway
Russky Collaborator George McHugh is running for Coeymans Town Supervisor. Will he get your vote, Komrad?

Yes! We spend billions a year on rotten fruits, vegetables, and meats and throw about 30% of it into the garbage because it rots before we can us it. But we import all of that produce and much of the meat and seafood, the meat and seafood arriving who-knows-how-old because it’s frozen. China, Mexico, Canada and other foreign economies are gobbling US dollars, your dollars, much faster than we can save our groceries from the transfer station.


Editor’s Aside: Curaleaf is the new name for the former PalliaTech. Boris Jordan is the CEO of Curaleaf. In an Albany Times Union article, the TU reports that the “Albany County Industrial Development Agency’s approval of roughly $450,000 in sales tax exemptions for equipment purchases to get the facility set for production” was OK-ed! Almost a half-million dollars in sales tax exemptions to retrofit a private company?!?!? Who approved that one, Mr Cuomo? Duh! A private company to grow What? You must all be on drugs.


In a personal communication from a local gas manufacturer in Glenmont, he tells us that his company’s major consumer of nitrogen gas is the food transportation industry. They cover the vegetables with inert gases like nitrogen or gases like ethylene dioxide while shipping them so that they don’t ripen during travel. But then, when they arrive at the destination, they go through accelerated ripening and rot faster!!! But who cares? By then they’re in your fridge. (Read about American waste in “Why Americans Lead the World in Food Waste,” — but the article doesn’t cover the additives to prevent ripening during shipping — but a trade article on how to prevent losses during shipping does cover the silent subject in the article,  “Preventing losses and preserving quality in food cargoes.”)

Canada gets the Blue Ribbon for taking care of their own.

We have to hand Canada the blue ribbon for taking care of their people. You see, Canada, with about one-tenth (35 million) of the US population (320+ million) and about the same size in terms of total area with Canada topping the USA in area (Canada 9,984,670 sq.km. vs USA 9,833,517 sq. km.).

But here’s an amazing difference: Canada has 44.5% agricultural land while the United States has 6.8%; Canada has about 17% arable land compared to the USA with about 7% Still wonder why we have to import our food? Oh, you say, most of Canada is woods and snow. Not true! Canada and the USA compare almost equally in terms of forested land: 33% and 34%, respectively. So why can’t we feed our people? Why can Canada feed their people and supply ours? Why does Canada have approximately the same land area but  only 1/3 the agriculture — but still feeds Canada and the USA —, while the US government is paying American farmers NOT to produce?  And why  Canada can produce beautiful produce hydroponically even during inclement seasons, and the US concentrates on growing pot? It’s actually a question of where government priorities are and the Big Plan for the few to control the many (only in the US, though).

You may not be able to afford these but Carver Laraway and Boris Jordan can. Smoke more pot!

They serve you rotten veggies and Chinese drugged up chicken, and provide fresh pot salad, while you’re vaping your cannabis oil they’ve sold you.

Minds like Boris Jordan’s, Carver Laraway’s and George McHugh’s and others around us function almost pathologically: Greed is a disease and excludes all other considerations. As Boris Jordan states in a CNBC interview, and we paraphrase, ‘Why stay in the Canadian pot market with only 36 million potential users when we can come to the USA and have 322 million potential users. The market growth is in the USA.’ We’re talking about pot now. Remember the stuff you’d get arrested for having just a couple of years ago?

Listen to the entire interview (about 6 minutes) at: Curaleaf chairman talks going public in a wild market for pot stocks.

Now greed mongers like Boris Jordan and Carver Laraway, with the help of the likes of George McHugh and Michael Biscone, are influencing legislators to change the laws (to make pot more accessible and put more of your money in their pockets. Don’t you see anything wrong with this picture? They serve you rotten veggies and Chinese drugged up chicken and provide fresh pot salad, while you’re vaping your cannabis oil they’ve sold you. Just listen to the interview above; Boris Jordan unabashedly talks about changing the laws!

Mug me! Pot me!

Americans want drugs; everyone knows that!
Americans are like midnight strollers in Central Park with big fluorescent letters on their backs: Mug me! Rape me!

Americans want drugs. There’s no question about that. The Columbians knew that and cashed in. The Mexicans know that and cash in. Afghanistanis know that and cash in. The Russians know that and are cashing in. Your American job-creators (That’s a joke!) are aiding and abetting the crimes against the American people. Americans are like strollers in Central Park with big fluorescent letters on their backs: Mug me! Rape me!

“All you need to do is trust us. We ask only that you trust us.”

The Russian, The Alien, The Russian-American
Is there a resemblance or is it us?

American business is based on a market economy: Give the market what it wants, that is, supply the demand. Enter Carver Laraway, George McHugh, and Boris Alexei Jordan. Remember the Twilight Zone episode, “We have come to serve you“? If not, let us remind you; watch the episode clip below:

And if that doesn’t amuse you, the clip where a Russian diplomat — interestingly Boris Jordan did his B.A. in Guess what? Russian diplomacy!!! — asks the alien: “Precisely, what are your motives for coming here quite uninvited. Are we to assume that there is no ulterior motive beyond this vast humanity you speak of?” And the alien replies: “All you need to do is trust us. Only that you simply trust us.”

The punch line comes in episode 3:

Government says: If there are laws prohibiting it we have to enforce the laws. That means we need a law-enforcement infrastructure and that costs money. This democratic market-economy so why not provide what the people want and do it legally. So we change the laws to make drugs legal that were once illegal, and government cashes in on the thing. Now if there’s no drug law enforcement, we don’t have to pay law enforcement to control drugs. Right? If it’s now legal, government and private enterprise make money. Right? If it’s legal, we don’t have to spend money on enforcing laws. Right? You don’t need so many law enforcement personnel or agencies. Right? More money saved. You make it legal and the street drug dealers go out of business. Right? WRONG!!! They create new, more potent, more deadly alternatives!!! Haven’t we learned from past failures?

We spent billions in the war on drugs…and lost the war. Now we’re joining the enemy. Nice!

Shocked? You should be.
(Figures up to 2015)

And just a couple of years ago, politicians were getting themselves elected by supporting the so-called “War on Drugs.” The stupidity of it all is revealed in the stats above and in the article, “Time to End the War on Drugs,” in which the argument is not that we should legalize drugs but should curb drug use but that we’ve been doing it all wrong for decades! Nobody in Washington or Albany seemed to read the writing on the wall.  We spent $$billions$$, NO! $$trillions$$ of taxpayer dollars in the “war on drugs.” And, like past wars, we came out with egg on our faces. Since VietNam, we’ve learned one thing: If you’re going to fight a war, make sure somebody gets rich and somebody gets re-elected. That’s the drum to which Washington and Wall Street march. So now we make marijuana legal — a drug that sent tens of thousands to prison and ruined tens of thousands of lives — but now is OK. Do we purge the criminal records of the kids that got caught? Do the convictions go away and does the stigma disappear? Maybe we should be asking questions like that.

We can’t buy a week’s supply of antibiotic to fight an infection without a doctor’s prescription but we can now get pot legally. Oh! Sorry, “medicinal pot.” We still need a practitioner’s prescription. Well, until we get beyond the “medicinal stage”, and move smoothly and legally into the “recreational stage,” like they are doing in Canada. But Hey! Boris Jordan is working on getting legislators to change the laws. All it takes is money, and he’s got plenty.

Sign on a downtown Montréal building.
(Translation: Smoking, Vaping, Cannabis Prohibited)

In a CNBC inteview of Boris Jordan, Carver Laraway’s backer and George McHugh’s financer, Jordan says: ‘In Canada there are 36 million people; in the United States we have more than 320 million people. Where do you think the market is? Where do you think the money is? The market’s in the USA.’

Don’t you feel like you’re being used? Why are the American people allowing themselves to be treated like mudroom doormats? Everybody, Chinese, Russian, Mexican gets to walk all over us. Is that right?

You’ve become the doormat and they’re walking all over you!

 

Sex for Sale: The Follow-up II

It’s not a question of whom you choose to love, how, or where. That’s a very personal right.

But it is a question of who is offering services, what services, how and where. There’s a difference between love, sex and Sex-4-Sale? There’s a difference between the backseat, the bedroom and the public arena, even if that arena appeals to a small segment of society.

We play too many games with language and fail to understand that language is connected with meaning, and meaning with values, and values with emotions. Just think what we have done to the simple four-letter word “love” in American English. We’ve destroyed it. Now just think about what “friend” meant at one time. and what “friend” means now in the post-Facebook era. “Friend” has become meaningless. When the basics — those little things most people take for granted and which make human beings into persons, that is, the things that change them from a What? to a Who? — lose their meaning and value, so do you and everyone else.


Have We Become Meaningless as a Doormat?

The United States once had meaning and value. It’s not only a question of ideology, or policy, or of how we think and what we do as a nation. It’s also a question of who we let in the country legally and what they do once they’re here. That’s a specific question of what our government is doing to protect the American way of life and living; literally, what it means to be the United States and the American people.

Are They Doing Their Jobs?

Or Are They Tantamount to Traitors?

Are you doing your job?

One of the questions we should expect the United States State Department and the Department of Homeland Security when vetting an applicant for entry in the United States and even more seriously, when admitting an applicant for entry in order to operate a business. The State Department and Homeland Security have been miserable failures in the past, and their failures have been the source of a great deal of tension, anxiety, dispute, anger, and suffering here in the American homeland. All of it unnecessary if our government would stop squabbling among themselves and do their jobs.


Editor’s Aside: The State Department authority for issuing visas is the Consular Service in the particular country. In the case of the UK, the applicant must have a valid UK passport, and will be able to obtain a visitor’s visa that is good for 90 days. Once here, no one — well, almost no one — keeps tabs on the “visitor;” he or she can do pretty much whatever and go pretty much wherever he or she wants. Many will take the risk and work illegally, and get away with it. But that’s no surprise to a nation who has been taking it from behind for so many years at Mexico’s pleasure. When the going gets really tough, the US government just makes them another US territory and pays them benefits without taxation, just like what happened with Puerto Rico. Everybody likes screwing Americans, even Americans.


We’ve recently had George McHugh and Carver Laraway in our sights because they are perpetrating a fraud on Coeymans, and need to be brought under control and fast. Residents are coming out with some very scary stuff about McHugh and Laraway, and our fact-finding is confirming much of what is being said. You don’t have to go far, for once the Albany Times Union is picking up on what McHugh and Laraway are up to, and more recently an individual with some very inside information has come forward and is ready to tell it all about McHugh and Laraway.

We’ve already raised important questions about George McHugh and Carver Laraway and their involvement with Russian businessman, Boris A. Jordan, and their marijuana businesses. We’re wondering why the Albany Times Union and the Ravena News Herald haven’t picked up the story, and Why? both papers are silent on the Russian connections in Coeymans. Well, it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to guess why Mark Vinciguerra and his — or should we say George McHugh’sRavena News Herald haven’t uttered a word about the Russian connections.

Back to “Sex for Sale”

Is T4GM Selling Sex Services on a US Visa?

But that’s another story. We’re getting off track so let’s get back to “Sex for Sale” and our continuing follow-up and investigation.

Washington County, NY, District Attorney
Jordan J. Anthony
Are you doing your job?

In two previous reports we drew attention to an unusual case of a British subject calling himself Jason Tantra, who claims to be in the US on a visa issued in the UK, and operating a business in the US, again authorized by the US consular authorities in Britain. We reported our concerns that Mr Tantra does not give his real name, does not publish or disclose any information about his business registration, no address, and no tax information. Yet the United States government has issued Mr Tantra a visa to be in the US, to work here, and to operate a business here in the United States.

We have reported that Mr Tantra — if that’s his real name, which we seriously doubt — operates a sex and spirituality business called Tantra 4 Gay Men, a business that provides massage services, instruction in what he calls Tantric sex practices, and even calls his operation a “school” that provides instruction and even issues “diploma certificates.”

That’s it in a nutshell. If you want to read the previous articles, please go to these links:

Our initial interest was the fact that this Mr Tantra had the balls to have a website removed because the site had published critiques of Tantra’s operations and his claims. That was important because we very strongly believe in freedom of expression and the right of every citizen to express an opinion. We also questioned the right, the legality, and the ethics of silencing a citizen because some pervert doesn’t like what he or she has to say. In other words, we had concerns about violation of constitutional rights by both the Internet service provider and by Mr Tantra.

Are you doing your job?

Well, the case has taken on an energy of its own, and we totally support the continuing investigation of Mr Tantra, his company Tantra 4 Gay Men (T4GM), his collaborators in the United States, including the LGBT retreat organization, Easton Mountain (Greenwich) in Washington County, New York, and the law enforcement officials in several states.

Our Government is Stooping to Record Lows

We agree that IF Mr Tantra and T4GM have been granted authorization to operate in the United States, that is, IF Mr Tantra actually has a visa to work in the US, and IF T4GM has actually been approved to operate in the United States as a business operation, our government is stooping to record lows. What possible contribution can a fraudulent, yes we said FRAUDULENT company make to any economy, local, regional, or national, to merit its authorization by the US government? On the other hand, Mr Tantra and his business may be operating without authorization, and what he has shared about his visa, the authorization to operate T4GM in the United States, his tax status, and his qualifications — apart from his statement that his services are “unregulated,” a statement with which we have taken issue and with which we disagree — then there’s a serious problem here that needs to be investigated. That’s exactly what one citizen is demanding.

We have documents that are addressed to a number of government agencies, demanding that Mr Tantra and his T4GM be investigated and that the truth be told. We  have contacted Mr Tantra at his organizations UK email via his T4GM website (What a mess that is!) and Tantra has responded with some very contradictory and defensive reactions, including threats of legal action and blocking further communications. So much for openness.

Mr Tantra has no idea about the big mistake he made by doing what he has done. So, we looked further into his operations and his collaborators’ operations, and we’d like to share some of the content of the documents we have.

Are you doing your job?

One citizen has send demands for investigation to the following local, state and federal government officials:

  • US Citizenship and Immigration Service
  • Homeland Security (Albany, NY, Regional Office)
  • District Attorneys in Washington County (NY), Suffolk County (MA), Miami-Dade County (FL)

The concerned citizen has also contacted several newspapers in Washington County, NY, and Her Majesty’s Home Office (UK), Department of Fraud Investigation.

Here’s an excerpt from the letter sent to the officials:

I am writing to you with a concern relating to the following areas:

  1. Operation of a sex services business by a foreign national in the United States, the state of New York, and sister states.
  2. Collaboration with said operator by a New York group operating as the Easton Mountain Retreat Community, located in Washington County, New York,
  3. Granting of “Diplomas” in a three-module series of training for payment by an unaccredited and unauthorized “school” of Tantra
  4. Provision of instruction, therapy, massage services, health services, psychological services, etc. by unlicensed individuals or individuals not qualified or credentialed to offer such services in the state of New York or elsewhere
  5. Questionable state and federal tax status and filings, reporting by Jason Tantra/T4GM
  6. Visa status and the nature of the business approved for operation in the United States and the State of New York granted to one Jason Tantra or T4GM.
  7. The possible perpetration of a multifaceted fraud by Mr. “Tantra” and his business, and his collaborators in the United States and in New York state, and elsewhere (e.g. Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, etc.)
  8. Violation of civil rights by Mr. Jason Tantra by causing the suspension of an entire blog for criticizing Tantra’s operations and his T4GM operation in the United States. Mr. Tantra has admitted to demanding the suspension of the site once he was notified of the existence of the posts.

On information and belief and on the basis of personal communications received from one Jason Tantra, a British subject sojourning in the United States on a so-called visa, and the operator of a vaguely described business not only in New  York State, particularly in Washington County, at the venue calling itself the Easton Mountain Retreat Center, where said Jason Tantra by and through his so-called business T4GM, ostensibly provides a variety of sex-oriented, psychological therapeutic, instructional, etc. services, some of which I allege require accreditation, approval or licensure, which the operators do not have, or appropriate supervision for which the operators are not qualified or do not provide at all.

The fact that Mr. Jason Tantra — whether that is a pseudonym, an assumed name for the purposes of selling his snake-oil programs, or is his actual name is in question — is a British subject in the United State on a visa of some sort, and alleges that the business he is operating in the United States under such visa has been vetted by the United States authorities, is far from credible, and if true, raises significant questions of how such a visa should be granted to operate such a business in the United States at all!

Are they doing their jobs?
