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 Only Gets Sicker; Criminal Perps Being Investigated

Editor’s Note: Just an update: We’re on the trail and investigating this obscene incident, and are tracking the Coeymans Police Department’s handling of it. The Coeymans Police Department has proved itself incompetent and inept in a number of past cases, and has a reputation for being a troupe of clowns that have succeeded only in shaming Coeymans. Here’s a little challenge for them: Let’s see who solves this case sooner. Will it be Smalbany (very likely) or the Coeymans Police Department (very unlikely), who brings the criminals to justice? (Hint: Smalbany is already making progress in the case. Where’s First Sergeant Contento on this?)

Coeymans Police Investigator, Investigating.


It Appears that Some Coeymans Residents are Mailing Family Members to Other Coeymans Residents.

A Coeymans Resident is making a pubic statement about his family tree and is having a Pennsylvania-based company send examples of his family tree to other Coeymans residents. The problem is: All turds look alike and we can’t tell whether the turds in the mail are the sender’s mother, father, sister, brother, or a more distant cousin.

A Local Coeymans Resident Giving Birth.

Yes, dear readers, some mother in the Town of Coeymans has experienced the joy of motherhood and has asked us to post a picture of the bundle of joy that she’s sharing with some Coeymans residents.

WE DEMAND THAT SUPERVISOR-ELECT GEORGE McHUGH, COUNCILMEN-ELECT COLLINS AND LEFEVRE, AND LEGISLATOR-ELECT GEORGE LANGDON MAKE PUBLIC STATEMENTS DENOUNCING THE CRIMINALS INVOLVED IN SENDING OFFENSIVE PACKAGES! TO DO ANYTHING LESS THAN MAKE A PUBLIC DENOUNCEMENT AND APOLOGY WILL BE TANTAMOUNT TO ADMITTING INVOLVEMENT AND SUPPORT FOR SUCH MORONIC & CRIMINAL CONDUCT.

Because we think that George McHugh and his “Comeback Team,” and the Friends of Coeymans (Laquire, Boomer, Hagen) know very well who’s behind this malicious mischief.

We call upon Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares and Allegheny Co. (PA) DA Stephen A. Zappala, Jr. to launch an immediate investigation into this incredible example of obscene harassment of at least 5 local Coeymans residents!!!

We call upon New York State Attorney General  Letitia James to join with Pennsylvania State Attorney General Josh Shapiro to investigate the illicit and criminal business activities of the perp company selling the crap!

We call upon the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the FBI, to investigate the perpetration of this interstate commercial crime.

The USPS Office of the Inspector General, Postal Inspectors, has been notified and Smalbany is awaiting contact with a local investigator. [Editor’s Note: There is already a file opened on this case with the USPS Postal Inspector, Boston Division (responsible for this area). If you have received a package or have information to share, you can call 1.207.871.8587, and speak to agent “Emily.”]

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What the happy and very relieved mother does not know is that Smalbany is now investigating her. You see, she’s been sharing little bits of herself, her own little product, via the United States Postal Service and First Class Mail. What she may not realize is she is committing a number of crimes and Smalbany will find her and her little bundle of joy and SHAME THEM.

Furthermore, Smalbany will urge the United States Postal Service Inspector to prosecute for abuse of the postal service. Smalbany will also demand that the United States Attorneys for the District of New York and the District of Pennsylvania investigate and prosecute the perps for violations of interstate trade and postal regulations.

Smalbany has already obtained the USPS tracking information and has verified the sender. That information is being used in our continuing investigation.

The idiots don’t realize that this package seals their fates.

And to be complete, Smalbany will assist the recipients of any packages in filing formal complaints of misdemeanor harassment against the persons ordering the packages. The misdemeanor complaints will be filed with state and local law enforcement, and, because of the nature of the interstate commerce offences, with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, given the fact that the shipper can be identified.

Since the shipper can be identified, and given the criminal nature of the offences, and given the shipper’s own claims for their product, which clearly support the harassment intent of the product, the shipper will be required under subpoena power or by court order to produce their order records and other business records, which will be used to identify the person ordering the product and providing the shipping information. Once that is done, well, somebody’s going to jail. Smalbany has already notified the owners of the business name A.S. Enterprises that their business name is being fraudulently misused.

State attorneys general in New York and Pennsylvania will be notified directly of the company’s activities and urged to investigate and prosecute.

We’d like to thank the Coeymans residents who brought this example of sick-community to our attention. We’d also like to thank the Coeymans resident, who has made this VERY BIG mistake for confirming all of our statements regarding Coeymans as a sick-community. Once again, you have played right into our hands. Congrats, stupids!

Sicko-s come in threes!

Why do Abuse Victims Stay in a Sick Community?

We often find it too easy to put ourselves in the place of the victims and imagine caving in at the first signs of abuse, rather than examining the situation and how it came about, that is, what we have done to enable the situation and to empower the abusers.

A Sick Community Must First Confront The Problem Before You Can Expect Healing To Occur.

But breaking the vicious cycle of abuse is not simply a matter of crying victim, pointing fingers, and complaining. Restoring health to the community and eliminating abusers and their abuse is a process, just like any healing program. As in any disease situation, you must first confront the problem before you can expect healing to occur.

For most people who may never have been in the situation, it may be very difficult to understand how a community becomes a sick-community, how abusers become abusers, how victims of the abuse became victims, and why the entire situation of sick-community, abusers and abuse, and victims seem to coexist and to continue. But there are many complex reasons for such regrettably common situations. Not the least are the powerful cultural, societal, emotional and psychological forces, and the economic and financial factors that keep the victim tied to the abusers and to the sick community. The specific reasons for these situations vary from one community, from one abuser, from one victim to the next, and they usually involve a number of unique factors.

Knowing these factors does not justify the situation nor does it exonerate the community as a whole, the abusers, or the victims from their responsibilities to correct the situation and to restore health to the community.

Some psychological/emotional reasons for staying in a sick community:

  • The victim’s belief that the abuser will change because of their remorse and promises to stop abusing
  • The victim’s fear of the abuser who threatens expressly or implicitly to retaliate if the victim reports the abuse anyone
  • The lack of community support for the victim
  • The lack of community opposition to the abuse
  • The communal guilt and shame over the failure of the community
  • The victim’s attachment to the sick-community
  • the victim’s fear of making major life changes
  • The victim’s feeling of responsibility for the abuse
  • The victim’s feeling of helplessness, hopelessness and isolation
  • The victim’s belief that they may be the only one who can help the community with its problems

All Abuse is Violence.
With just a few minor changes, all of these fit abuse in the sick community.

Some situational reasons for staying in a sick community:

  • The victim’s financial and economic dependence on the abuser or the sick community
  • The victim’s fear of physical or psychological harm to themselves or their children
  • The victim’s concern that their children may suffer psychological, emotional, or social damage due to the loss of established relationships, even if the community is abusive
  • The victim’s lack of social or job skills
  • The victim’s fear of social isolation because the abusive community is the victim’s only support system
  • A lack of information regarding human and civil rights
  • The victim’s belief that law enforcement is indifferent to or complicit in the abuse
  • Distrust of the courts and administration of justice
  • Distrust of the political environment and government
  • Misinformation, disinformation, misinformation received through print and other media
  • Family and historical ties to an area or community
  • Local corruption obstructs and intimidates basic freedoms

Our Final Point:
NONE OF THE ABOVE ARE GOOD REASONS or EXCUSES WHY YOU SHOULD ACCEPT SICK-COMMUNITY ABUSE. WAKE UP AND RECLAIM YOUR LIFE!

The feeling when you’ve taken back control of your life!

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

Societal Obstacles that Impair Movement Away from Sick-Community Violence and Abuse.

Individual obstacles may be complicated by societal hurdles, further impairing the victim’s ability to confront, distance themselves, or even leaving the sick-community abuse. Some societal barriers include:

  1. The victim’s concern about being called a coward or not defending his or her rights, or avoiding responsibilities.
  2. Concern about a decline in quality of life for themselves and their children.
  3. Reinforcement of counselors of “saving” the community relationships at all costs, rather than pursuing the goal of stopping the violence and abuse.
  4. Indifference of law enforcement who may treat violence and abuse as a “personal dispute,” instead of a crime where one person is harassing or another person. All too often, it is the victim of abuse who is reprimanded, even arrested and charged by law enforcement, even if they are only defending themselves against the abuser.
  5. Frequently law enforcement personnel discourage or make it unnecessarily difficult for the victim to make a complaint or file charges against the abuser. Some law enforcement personnel may dismiss or downplay the abuse, side with the abuser, or may not take the victims report of the violence or abuse seriously.
  6. Reluctance or outright refusal by prosecutors to prosecute cases. Some may advise the abuser to plead guilty to a lesser charge, depriving the victim of the full protection of the law, and possibly placing the victim at increased risk of retaliation.
  7. The situation may be even worse in small communities, where local non-professional judges have personal, political, or financial reasons not to impose appropriate sentences on convicted abusers. Probation or a fine, even outright dismissal is much more common in local justice courts.
  8. Even despite prosecution and judgment, there is very little to prevent an abuser from retaliation or changing the abuse strategy.
  9. Despite public awareness of the sick-community situation and the increased availability of information identifying abuse and abusers in a sick-community, victims rarely confront the situation to improve their lot.
  10. In many sick-communities, over time, residents begin to adopt the mindset that  they themselves are responsible for making their situation what it is. Their sense of failure to maintain their dignity and improve their relationships equals failure as a person.
  11. Isolation from neighbors, friends and families, either through the actual abuser’s conduct, or because the victim feels guilty or ashamed for putting up with the abuse. The victim then may attempt to conceal signs of the effects of the abuse from others; the social or self-imposed isolation contributes to a sense that there is nowhere to turn.
  12. The feeling of impotence causes the victim to try to find reasons to justify the abuser’s violence; the victim rationalizes that the abuser’s behavior is caused by genuine ideology, conviction, desire for change, promotion of economic interests, or other factors.
  13. Societal and cultural factors condition persons to believe their identities and feelings of self-worth are contingent upon acceptance by the community majority, even if it is a sick-community majority.
  14. One of the most scandalous and insidious of obstacles that the sick community faces is disinformation, bullying, intimidation, and discouragement by the powers to be and their supporters, who can seize and maintain control only by ongoing and constant suppression of the natural rights of the community members. Locally, we can point to the Friends of Coeymans —a local Coeymans group organized and run by Jeff LaQuire, Nate Boomer, and Chris Hagen, and supported by the George McHugh group and his business interests —and their followers, who deploy what can be characterized as neonazi tactics to intimidate and isolate residents.

Friends of the Friends of Coeymans

Inconsistency of violence and abuse; during non-abuse phases, the abuser may fulfill the victim’s vision of harmony and community. The victim may also rationalize the abuser is basically good until the situation changes and the abuser reveals their true agenda.

Key Components of Social Justice in Our Communities

But the good news and hope is that victims retain their power of self-determination and independence, regardless of what the abusers in the sick community think, say, or do. This is because the victims, although persuaded by the abusers to accept the role of victims, are not in fact victims at all! As already stated, they are playing the role of victim, and they can leave any role at any time, because roles are fictitious and good only temporarily. But you can’t cure what you refuse to confront!

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

The recent elections in Albany County (NY) and in Greene County (NY), particularly in the Town of Coeymans (Albany County, NY), and the towns of New Baltimore (Greene County, NY), for example, have exhibited a troubling pattern forming in what was once a multi-party, participative democracy, free and courageous nation: Amid finger-pointing, immorality, self-service, and failures in our public servants, the main political parties, the Democratic and the Republican parties, have become irrelevant, frequently unable to muster up candidates to provide voters with a choice. Moreover, the third parties have become ballot brokers, political prostitutes, selling their support for future favors, and backing some of the worst scoundrels the polls have ever been sullied with.

The 2019 Local Elections:
Examples of the “Sick Community Syndrome”©

This analysis and commentary is based on the model of domestic violence and abuse, and shows how domestic violence and abuse plays out on a community scale in the framework of what I call the “sick community syndrome.” [anonymous]

Voting Normally Works….
Unless you live in a sick community. Coeymans Town Hall will experience an acute bout of parasitic infestation in January 2020, when the McHugh mob is sworn in.

The Sick Community Syndrome.

The sick-community syndrome is alive and well. It has become a permanent resident, it appears, in our communities, in the shady and corrupt characters running for office, misinforming the public and defaming incumbents, opposing candidates, or anyone,  who had clear who availed themselves of their guaranteed constitutional rights of free expression and freedom of assembly. Ignoring clear and conspicuous exemplary performance and records of accomplishment, the shadow figures intimidated residents and brainwashed the willing; this would have sent up red flags to most observers but not in a sick community. What’s worse, and with the Town of Coeymans as our poster-child, the fact that the least qualified candidates — and the most corrupt candidates — were elected to replace incumbents with records of accomplishment. This situation raised many questions and led us to coin the phrase “sick community syndrome” to describe the municipalities which, like the Town of Coeymans and towns like it dotting Albany and Greene Counties in New York, have a history of such self-destructive, self-abusive behaviors, marked by widespread abuse and psychological violence perpetrated on an apathetic and depressed — morally and economically — community of what can be called most accurately: sheeple.

Background Facts

The Town of Coeymans as the Poster-Child for “Sick Community Syndrome”

What about us?!?
You elected them and abandoned us!!!

The 2019 midterm election campaign scene in the Town of Coeymans, for example, included:

Two incumbents: 2-term Town Supervisor, Phillip Crandall (Dem), multiple-term Town Councilman, Tom Dolan (Dem), and a young man new to the political scene but not to town government, Michael McGuire (Dem), who is the Town of New Scotland Assessor.

Coeymans Opted to Oust Incumbents with Proven Track Records of Fiscal Responsibility, Economic Growth, and Vast Improvements in Infrastructure and Environmental Concerns. Why?

The Smalbany blog (nonpartisan) reported extensively on the candidates and the campaigning but in synopsis:

  1. George D. McHugh, an attorney closely associated with local big business interests, a long history of ethics violations, a pattern of misinformation, disinformation, malinformation, and outright lies. A womanizer, married 4 times so far. McHugh was a one-term Coeymans Town Supervisor in 2000-2001, but did not run for a second term. His reasons for not having run for a second term change with the weather. He’s a skilled liar.
  2. McHugh’s running mates included the son of a local family business (fuel oil and other products), Zacchary Collins (30), and a local man Brendan Lefevre (34), both with no life or political experience or any experience to speak of at all., In fact, Lefevre didn’t live in the Coeymans area until recently, and then returned only to take up residence in his father’s basement. Neither Collins nor Lefevre own any property in the Town of Coeymans but will be calling the shots for residents who do own property and pay property taxes. 
  3. Upon reliable information, George D. McHugh never attended a Coeymans Town Board meeting save for one appearance at which he made a presentation on behalf of one of his business interests. Collins and Lefevre may have been seen at one Coeymans Town Board meeting shortly before the elections, but that is an unconfirmed report. They couldn’t be bothered to attend town board meetings but now are going to be running things as the Coeymans Town Council.
  4. The McHugh campaign was extraordinarily expensive in terms of money spent in a local political campaign. Initial estimates indicate that the campaign spent in excess of $20,000. Final campaign finance reports are still pending, and we will obtain them and verify the exact amount spent. Will McHugh disclose every source of campaign money he and his group received? Support includes promises of future benefits to be received from LaFarge-Holcim, Carver Companies, Port of Coeymans, Coeymans Industrial Park, organized business groups in the town, and private interests. It’s all about money!
  5. George McHugh is former owner of the local newspaper, the Ravena News Herald, and close friends with the current owner/publisher, Mark Vinciguerra. While the Ravena News Herald tried but failed to make a convincing appearance of fair and balanced campaign reporting, and the News Herald was monumentally unsuccessful in masking their flagrantly biased support of the McHugh group.
  6. The far more disturbing aspect of the McHugh campaign was the clear close involvement of a group calling itself, Friends of Coeymans, which was in fact a trio of local thugs, Jeffrey “Jeff” LaQuire, Nathan “Nate” Boomer, and Christopher “Chris” Hagen. The so-called Friends of Coeymans made it a point of appearing at most public meetings of the Town of Coeymans boards, harassing the board members, intimidating pubic attendees, staging pubic comment together with collaborators, and generally making any meeting into a three-ring-circus affair. The bullying and thuggery reached such a point that the Town Board found it necessary to have police presence at meeting to ensure order. According to their Facebook page, they assure followers that their work has just begun! What does that mean to Coeymans residents? To residents who want to participate in local government? Who want to exercise their guaranteed rights? We’ve already seen the neonazi tactics used by the Friends of Coeymans and now we read that their work has just begun!

    Neonazi-like Clown Characters:
    LaQuire – Hagen – Boomer

  7. The LaQuire-Boomer-Hagen trio did not limit their activity to public comment but frequently followed public attendees around videoing and recording their conversations, photographing attendees, and making comments about or to attendees during meetings. The trio not only have become despised and ridiculous public figures, they also host an abusive Facebook page that provided commentary, disinformation, personal attacks, and other obnoxious publications. It was purest neonazism in action and it was, regrettably effective.
  8. The McHugh group received Republican (R), Conservative (C), and Independence (I) party lines on the ballot. Those endorsements will become something those parties will learn to regret. Lie down with dogs and wake up with fleas!
  9. The majority of Coeymans voters opted to choose the greed and narcissism of a small group of corrupt clowns and to abandon their children’s and grandchildren’s best interests! The majority of Coeymans voters chose shame and guilt over and above responsibility to their community and to their children. Why?

A Majority of Voters — Not Necessarily the People of Coeymans — Elected Three Men of Questionable Character to Replace Incumbents with Proven Positive Performance. Why?

It’s difficult for a reasonably thinking mind to grasp Why? given the facts and the available options, the majority of Coeymans residents who bothered to go to the polls, actually voted for one of the most scandalous groups in modern Coeymans history!

On November 5, 2019, voters went to the polls, to elect Coeymans Town Supervisor, two Coeymans Town Councilmen, and one County Legislator. When the polls closed it was announced that the McHugh group had succeeded in receiving the majority of votes. The Coeymans Town Board was now 100% Republican, packed with McHugh and big-business puppets, and two incumbent Republicans, Daniel Baker and Kenneth Burns had already been exposed as moles on the Town Council, and both Baker and Burns proved their dubious characters according to past activities on and off the board.

Comeback Team (McHugh) Supporters Make their Way to the Polls
The Result of the Comeback Team’s Brainwashing!

The Smalbany blog reported extensively on the campaigning, including an extensive interview of Mr. Phillip Crandall, former Town Supervisor, and published in both excerpts and in full transcript. George McHugh refused to be interviewed and refused to debate Mr. Crandall on at least 3 occasions.Voters seemed to ignore McHugh’s cowardice.

This 2019 local campaign behavior was on the one hand, characterized by considerable publication of the challengers’ background and conduct, principally that of George McHugh, who had a past rich in questionable conduct and more recently, bare-faced lies that were easily exposed. His running mates were as unimpressive as McHugh was impressive (negatively). In contrast, the incumbents. Phil Crandall and Tom Dolan, and candidate Michael McGuire, were experienced, civil, productive, and forthcoming. Mr. Crandall, for example, was able to run down a long laundry list of accomplishments and programs, including remarkable fiscal recovery during his two terms.

So why does a whole community, that is, those who actually go to the polls, ignore the available factual information in favor of being fed disinformation and malinformation, to elect clearly morally, ethically, and clearly substandard and undesirable candidates like McHugh, Collins and Lefevre, while abandoning incumbents, like Crandall and Dolan, and a professional administrator like McGuire, who provided proof of their the high-quality performance and productivity. We are not pointing out pie in the sky accomplishments but accomplishments, which were clearly obvious day-to-day to anyone on the street, anyone enjoying clean air, soil, water, parks, and new sidewalks and newly paved streets!

This Behavior of Residents Raises Many Troubling Questions

Such community behavior raises many troubling questions about how the so-called voting public process facts, the value they place on truth and integrity, and why they would abandon incumbents with undeniably excellent performance records only to elect a man of highly questionable ethics, George McHugh, whose campaign was based largely on contradictions, lies, and the neonazi tactics of the Friends of Coeymans — Jeff LaQuire, Nate Boomer, and Chris Hagen —, and two inexperienced young puppets — Zachary Collins and Brendan Lefevre —, who would function conspicuously as McHugh’s tools on the Coeymans Town Board.

These are some of the questions we hope to clarify, if not help to answer, including:

  • Why do people stay in sick communities while denying that they are being abused?
  • Why do residents in sick communities refuse to confront the reality of the abuse and avoid changing?
  • Why do residents in sick communities deny facts and truth about abuse, and call the messenger a liar?
  • When offered a choice, why do residents in a sick community choose bad judgement over common sense?
  • Do voters elect bad candidates out of shame and guilt, and is that behavior a way of punishing themselves?
  • In other words, How do the abused, the victims then become self-abusers?

The abuse becomes the norm; anything else is not normal for them. Common sense would seem to indicate that a community should be able to choose how they want to live and, since it is a viable option, for the victims to do what they can to escape their abusers. But they don’t choose to escape their abusers! Instead, they hand them the keys to the community, and the vicious cycle of abuse continues and worsens.

The New Normal.
Abuse becomes the Norm.

Editor’s Note: If anyone already has the answers to these questions, please share them with us. You’ll save us a lot of research and writing time, and we can move on to other equally scary topics. But if you don’t have the answers, read the continuing installments of this series, Coeymans: Poster-Child of the “Sick Community Syndrome.”

Get Used to Smelling Burning Garbage!

We said this would happen but we had no idea they’d start so soon. The so-called Comeback Team has already met, according to reliable sources, with LaFarge-Holcim to discuss what changes LaFarge wants them to make to the Clean Air Law. The favors have only just begun! Thanks to Coeymans voters!

McHugh, Collins, LeFevre met with LaFarge-Holcim to discuss Clean Air Law Changes.

We’d like to adapt a quote a bit from Wm. Shakespeare’s tragedy, MacBeth, the Three-Witches scene:

Adapted from Shakespeare’s Macbeth

The Players
First Villain — George McHugh
Second Villain — Brendan Lefevre
Third Villain — Zacchary Collins

ACT I  SCENE I

A deserted place in Coeymans, at the LaFarge-Holcim offices.

[Thunder and lightning. Enter three villains]

First Villain:     When shall we three meet again?

Second Villain: When the hurly-burly, the chaos’s done,
When the battle’s lost and won.
The day after we’re sworn in.

Third Villain:    That will be ere the set of sun.
Dirty air will kill the fun.

First Villain:     Where the place?

Second Villain: At Coeymans town.

Third Villain:    There to meet with the Masters.

First Villain:     I come, graymalkin, my evil guardian!

Second Villain: The toad calls.

Third Villain:    Anon!

ALL THREE:   The air is foul, and foul is the air:
We hover through fog and filthy air.

[They Exit]

 

Save Coeymans from the Comeback Team!

“The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good People Do Nothing!”

Edmund Burke/John F. Kennedy


This just in (November 4, 2019): Jeff LaQuire has been identified as Jay Faith, a fake profile he has been using to post on various Facebook pages! Just another example of the dishonesty and sleaziness of the Comeback Team and their supporters, the Friends of Coeymans a.k.a. Coeymans Clowns, a.k.a. Fiends of Coeymans! Something about Jeff LaQuire…maybe it’s the ‘quire” part…but his fake profile features a woman with two children. We find that a bit odd for a man to be posing as a woman. But then, it’s the FOC and they’re supporting the Comeback Team…It’s just so unnatural.


mchugh liar disgrace

George McHugh – Liar and Evil Puppetmaster
Any man who associates lies with a national tragedy and the uniform is a disgrace!

The Comeback Team is Evil. They will triumph if good people sit back and do nothing.

lost in mchugh fog

Collins & Lefevre: Perhaps not entirely evil…YET
No experience, no independence, McHugh’s puppets.

As can be expected, the Ravena News Herald wasted good deal of ink repeating George McHugh’s weasel-words in an 11th hour effort to distract from his scandalous lies. They’re still offering him air-time to backpedal and save himself. How many more lies can he manage to tell be for the polls open. Let’s start counting, shall we? He’s still as devious and dishonest as ever. It’s just that his previous lies were discovered and made public that he’s now softened them at the last minute. Smalbany published two articles on the Interview that wasn’t, the interview, which, had McHugh had the courage and integrity to accept, would have forced him to admit his lies. Period. The image adorning those articles is one of a pig wallowing in mud and cites Proverbs and 2 Peter 2, scriptural passages, that refer to the fool’s folly, in other words, the fool never changes. McHugh is what McHugh is and McHugh does what McHugh has always done: taken very good care of McHugh at the expense of everyone else. 4 wives and how many other women has he used. He’s going to use, abuse, and then leave Coeymans as soon as he’s gotten what he’s after. Mark these words.

He’s got plenty of weasel-words to weasel around his ethics violations. Yeah, the check is in the mail, Georgie. All we have to say is that so many charges of ethics violations just don’t drop out the sky like snowflakes. Where there’s smoke, Georgie, there’s reason to believe there’s fire. Don’t treat this community and its voters like fools. We’re not…well at least some of us still have our marbles, no thanks to George McHugh!

Liar, liar! Your tail’s on fire, Georgie!

Get out and VOTE!

Comeback Team and More Misinformation about the Clean Air Law

Smalbany’s Summary of why George McHugh and his Comeback Losers would be really bad news for Coeymans will be posted on Sunday, November 3, 2019.  Stay tuned!


Aren’t You Getting Just a Little Bit Tired of the Comeback Losers Team Trying to Feed you More Misinformation, Disinformation, Malinformation, and Lies?

What’s the Comeback Team’s Point? Is there a real Intent to Harm?

Why Can’t the Comeback Losers Just Tell the Truth?

Because they’re pathological liars!
It’s gotten to the point that they are so desperate, you can’t believe anything they put out there.

Clean air, clean soil, clean water.

The most recent lies are in their campaign card received in the mail on Wednesday, in which they make the following false statements:

FIRST LIE on the Card at No. 1: The Coeymans Comeback Team has no plans to repeal the so-called Clean Air Law (CAL), which incidentally, allows for industries to burn up to 25 tons of tires a day.

This is nothing less than intentional disinformation and malinformation tantamount to an outright lie, intended to deceive and, confuse and mislead voters! The complete text of the Clean Air Law can be read at Clean Air.

We’ve carefully read the text of the law and can definitely say that what the Comeback Losers say on their campaign card is a lie.

The word-for-word “Intent” of the Clean Air Law is stated in the Law as:

It is the intent of this chapter to promote and protect the public health and welfare of the residents of the Town of Coeymans by regulating burning or related processing of wastes, and prohibiting the same on a large scale. [Smalbany Editor’s emphasis. Note the explicit distinction between “burning” and “processing”, that is, not “burning.”]

We also read in the “Definitions” (§ 80-4Definitions. section of the Law, what the Law defines as waste, and at the bottom it defines “tires” as

As used in this chapter, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:

 WASTEAny of the following, or combination of the following: … waste tires as defined by New York Environmental Conservation Law § 27-1901(13)… Any material that falls under this definition shall not be considered fuel. [Smalbany Editor’s emphasis]

The important phrase that you should not misread is “any material that falls under this definition shall not be considered fuel,” because that’s what LaFarge Holcim was calling the tires and Connecticut garbage: “fuel”!

The Law defines a waste facility as:

WASTE DISPOSAL FACILITY
Any facility which disposes of waste or uses waste to produce energy…[A] waste disposal facility does not include systems used exclusively for on-site space heating purposes at a residential home. [Smalbany Editor’s emphasis]

In other words, we have to read “uses waste to produce energy” as another way to say “fuel.”

Here’s the paragraph that the Comeback Losers are using to mislead their readers:

80-5 Prohibition. It is hereby prohibited for a waste disposal facility to process more than 25 tons of waste in any twenty-four-hour period. [Smalbany Editor’s emphasis. No mention of “burn” in this section. Process, as noted above, is other than “burning.”]

This section is actually called “Prohibition,” meaning that it forbids even the processing of a specific amount of waste! NOT as the Comeback Losers write, “allows” up to 25 tons. There’s a big difference! The Comeback Losers should sign up for some remedial reading comprehension lessons. But wait a minute, don’t they have a corrupt and crooked lawyer on their Comeback Team? George McHugh? Wouldn’t he be able to read the Clean Air Law and understand what it really says? Now Why? would George McHugh want to change his skin and start telling the truth?

Without reproducing the entire text, we need to emphasize the very strict monitoring requirements of the Clean Air Law:

Continuous emissions monitoring systems (“CEMS”) equipment shall be used to monitor, measure and disclose the smokestack emission of the following pollutants [Smalbany Editor’s emphasis. An extensive list of pollutants follows.]

A waste disposal facility shall disclose all data provided by CEMS required under this section in real time on a public website. Data shall also be provided in summary form…[D]ata shall be maintained until six months after the waste disposal facility closes or changes its activities such that it no longer qualifies as a waste disposal facility

A waste disposal facility with any air emissions point source shall not process more than one ton of waste in any twenty-four-hour period without complying with the clean air standards in this section.

Waste disposal facilities must meet the following pollution limits where they are more stringent than corresponding limits in an air permit issued by a state or federal environmental agency:

In other words, any emissions must be monitored, measured, and disclosed continuously. The emissions must be disclosed to the public in real time and in summary form on a public access website. No waste can be processed without complying with the CAL standards. The more stringent pollution limits must be met even if state or federal regulations allow for other limits.

The Comeback Losers do say that they don’t want to repeal the CAL but what they don’t say is that they don’t want to change the CAL to suit their scheming. The will attempt to change the CAL so that it is more favorable to the interests of LaFarge Holcim and others.

Finally, we contacted the Town of Coeymans, and received the following statement from a Town Board member:

The Clean Air Law is first and foremost emissions-based. It sets, perhaps, the strictest emissions standards in the US. You can burn tires if you meet the strict emissions standards; but in no instance can you burn more than 25 tons/day.

LaFarge, for example, said they would need to burn 100-150 tons/day in order to make it economically feasible. They still, by their own admission, would not be able to meet the emission standards.

LaFarge, or any other industry, would still need DEC approval to burn any tires in Coeymans for any standards that the town law is silent on.

If they are suggesting that we should ban burning all tires regardless of the compliance to the emissions standards, the Town of Coeymans will be happy to work on that with them.

That statement should put the matter to rest.

SECOND LIE on the Card at No. 2: The Clean Air law was passed despite previous state tests showing our air was clean, with information about the clean air kept from the pubic.

That statement is not true. First, the air quality for the region is public information, and anyone can access it. Second, we have been informed that local environmental organizations had the information and made it available to the public on a variety of sites. The information was available if anyone made the least effort to find it.

But the actual question we should be asking is this: Regardless of whether the air quality was good or even outstanding, LaFarge Holcim and McHugh wanted to being in tires and garbage to be burnt as “fuel” at the Ravena-Coeymans plant, just across from the middle school and high school. The purpose of the Clean Air Law was to keep the air in Coeymans clean. The very wording of the “Intent” of the CAL reads: “to promote and protect the public health and welfare of the residents of the Town of Coeymans.” The CAL prohibits the burning of tires and garbage as “fuel,” aims to keep the air clean, makes no claim whatsoever that the air in Coeymans is contaminated, substandard, or poor, and imposes strict emissions standards for monitoring, measuring and reporting to the public.

The Truth Is: Why would anyone want to keep information about good air quality from the public, anyway. It doesn’t make sense! What does make sense is that Supervisor Crandall and his Board wanted to ensure that the air breathed by Coeymans residents stayed clean, despite LaFarge Holcim and George McHugh.

THIRD INTENTIONAL DISINFORMATION / MALINFORMATION or LIE, on the Card at No. 4: Not one dime of the Coeymans Comeback Team’s campaign has bee funded by Lafarge Holcim and/or Carver Companies.

OK. Let’s assume for just one moment that the Coeymans Losers are being truthful, just for a change. Let them disclose where all the money is coming from for all of this incredible spending going into a local election campaign! Just make some financial disclosure, like we ask any other candidates for public office to do. We’d like to see your campaign contributors, the amounts they contributed, how the money was spent, on what, by whom, and where. It’s that simple. The Comeback Losers are spending huge amounts of money on this local campaign. WHERE’S THE MONEY COMING FROM AND WHERE’S IT GOING?

If the Comeback Team Losers are so business oriented and business-friendly, they won’t be spending those campaign dollars for nothing. No businessman spends money without expecting to make more by his investment. Do George McHugh, Zach Collins, and Brendan Lefevre expect us to believe that their business plan is to lose money or operate at a loss? Is that the business plan you want for Coeymans? Or are they concealing something?

FOURTH INTENTIONAL DISINFORMATION / MALINFORMATION, on the Card at No. 4: The Crandall administration has been involved in too many ethical conflicts, including his forced resignation as judge for numerous improprieties, and removal from the Conservative line in 2017 for fraudulently witnessing petitions.

This angle is getting old really fast. First of all, Smalbany grilled Mr Crandall for two hours but didn’t ask anything about Mr Crandall’s resignation from the position of town justice. Why? It just wasn’t relevant, it was old news, it just wasn’t important.

To Mr Crandall’s credit, though, even without being asked, he brought the subject up. He speaks very openly about what went on and why he resigned. Mr Crandall brought it up in the context of George McHugh’s record of ethical violations. Smalbany’s question was: Why would George McHugh be bad for Coeymans? Mr Crandall’s response can be read in the transcript of Segment 2 of the Crandall Interview. It’s there in black and white for everyone to read (Transcript, Segment 2, page 4, lines 12-22; page 5, lines 1-24; page 6, lines 1-6).

The Truth is: Mr Crandall has served the Town of Coeymans as the voter’s choice for two (2) consecutive terms, a total of four (4) years, during which he has turned the Town’s finances around and has done miracles putting the Town in good if not excellent fiscal health.

Mr Crandall has done this while making vast improvements in Town of Coeymans infrastructure, repaving road, installing sidewalks, improving parks, and all this while making reasonable concessions to businesses, while establishing fairness in taxation and overall government.

As for a court dumping a candidate’s petition and its signatures, this is common, and occurs for the most ridiculous reasons. Anyone seriously in politics doesn’t even give such a charge a second thought. Just recently a Greene County candidate’s Independence Party petition was disallowed because of an idiotic technicality: the candidate’s opponent claimed that the petition was not properly bound. The court had to interpret NYS election law and had to throw the petition and the signatures out. The candidate is doing remarkably well, though, because Greene County Voters saw through the ruse and the treachery, and his opponent has been sliding downhill fast.

That’s a lesson George McHugh, Zach Collins, and Brendan Lefevre should have learned earlier. Tell the truth and stop being liars and weasel-dealers speaking weasel-words. Your lies, disinformation, misinformation, and malinformation have caught up with you and you’re in a bad way now. It’s your own fault, boys. Deal with it.

George McHugh: Wallowing Sows and Vomiting Dogs – Part I

Smalbany’s Summary of why George McHugh and his Comeback Losers would be really bad news for Coeymans will be posted on Sunday, November 3, 2019.  Stay tuned!


It’s Sunday so let’s talk Holy Scripture:
“As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool repeats his folly”
(Proverbs 26:11 / 2 Peter 2:22)

How Proverbs and 2 Peter apply to George McHugh.

2 Peter 2:22 concludes Peter’s teaching about those who had gone astray and fallen in the gutter by their deceits. He has in mind those who had come into contact with the community of the righteous, only to return to the sinfulness of the hypocrites and the world.  Similarly, those kind of men are like a pig who can be scrubbed clean, but soon returns to wallow in the muck again. In other words, these men never truly changed in their nature or their character. Dogs and pigs do what dogs and pigs do; there’s no changing them. Men like that show that they never changed, and it stands to reason that they are still exactly what they used to be. The verse describes George McHugh perfectly.


At this point, we believe that when George McHugh started his campaign, he thought it would be Coeymans-as-usual. Just go out there, tell them what they want to hear, trash your opponents, tell some lies, make some promises you’ll never keep, and they’ll repay you with their vote. Not this time, boys.

We don’t think that McHugh had a clue about how his campaign would draw such attention. He never planned on the inquiries, the investigation, the uncovering of so many unsavory and off-putting examples of his dishonesty, unethical conduct and professional ethics violations, his deceitfulness, and his disdain for transparency and answering the public’s questions. His arrogance is particularly troubling.

Sorry, Georgie, did we surprise you?

McHugh never expected the analysis and the scrutiny that his background and his conduct would elicit. But here it is, Georgie Boy.

That’s why we chose those Bible verses especially for you; the have particularly special meaning that applies beautifully to you, George McHugh.

Back in September, we invited both candidates for Coeymans Town Supervisor, incumbent Phil Crandall and challenger George McHugh, to be interviewed by an impartial, non-partisan, interviewer, in the presence of an observer for the interviewee and a community observer. Smalbany provided both candidates with a set of Proposed Interview Questions, so that the interviewees would have the opportunity to do their preparation and provide the best-possible answers. Smalbany’s interviewer would be expected to ask the set questions but also had the discretion to ask additional questions.

The current Coeymans Town Supervisor, Mr. Phillip Crandall, responded almost immediately to our invitation with a confirmation that he would be willing to be interviewed, and left it up to Smalbany to suggest [a] possible date[s]. Mr. Crandall was interviewed on October 16, 2019, for more than two hours. Smalbany published selected excerpts from the Crandall Interview in three Segments, and provided the full transcripts for readers to view or download.

We are providing the links below to those excerpts, where you will also find links to the complete transcripts of the interview.

George D. McHugh, candidate opposing Mr. Crandall, is running alongside Zach Collins and Brendan Lefevre, both running for seats on the Coeymans Town Board, and George Langdon, a former Coeymans Town Board member, now running for a seat on the County Legislature. The closest classical saying we can come up with is from Benjamin Franklin:

This one’s for Zach Collins and Brendan Lefevre.

Smalbany contacted George McHugh at the same time that we contacted Mr. Crandall. Mr. Crandall responded almost immediately; McHugh refused to respond. Smalbany contacted McHugh in two follow-ups but McHugh continued to refuse to respond.

McHugh refused to answer questions.

McHugh followed the same pattern when it came to the proposed debates between Mr. Crandall and McHugh: three opportunities and McHugh refused all three.

This raises important questions for the Coeymans community: First: If McHugh won’t respond to questions now, what can you expect if somehow he gets elected? Second: What is he hiding?

There is a legal maxim that goes like this
“”Silence is admission of guilt when when the accused ought to have spoken and was able to.”
Mr. McHugh, being an attorney, must have applied that maxim many times; now we apply it to him.

We’ll start with the actual questions we sent to George McHugh with all three of our invitations to interview. We’ll then move on to questions that have been raised in the course of our research, questions that point to very serious character and professional defects in George McHugh that make him unfit for public office, and may even subject him to professional discipline as an attorney.

We will present the questions and our findings in two parts, the first of which we will publish today and Part II, on Tuesday.


PART I – The McHugh Interview that Wasn’t.

Questions that George McHugh has avoided answering

  1. You were elected to be Town of Coeymans Supervisor back in 2001, served one term, and then did not run for a second term. Why was that?

McHugh refused to answer this question. McHugh admits his guilt.

We actually covered this question in two separate articles on the Smalbany blog, so we’ll just refer you to those articles for the details, and recap briefly here: In a Ravena News Herald Article back in 2001, and in a letter to the editor in May 2001, McHugh gave as his reasons for not running for re-election in 2001: his family and his law practice. In March 2019, he changes his story: In an article in the Ravena News Herald, and in his campaign pieces mailed to Coeymans residents, McHugh now claims it was his sense of duty and patriotism after the events of 9/11. George McHugh desecrates the memory and sacrifices of 9/11, and attempts to exploit the giref and emotions associated with the national tragedy of 9/11 to gain political benefit through an outright lie! We say that’s disgraceful and despicable. That alone should cost him your vote. A liar before election is likely to be a liar after the election. (See our Smalbany article: George McHugh: Dishonorable Scoundrel! How Dare You!!!)

  1. The question of the Blaisdell Farm property and your [McHugh’s] housing project on that property has been the subject of a number of inquiries, particularly the fact that the property was annexed by the Village of Ravena at about the time you were Coeymans Town Supervisor, or shortly after you left office. Would you please comment on the circumstances of that annexation and how you benefitted from it? (See our Smalbany article at To McHugh or Not to McHugh.)

McHugh refused to answer this question. McHugh admits his guilt.

One of McHugh’s former wives — he’s gone through 3 and is on his 4th so far — was running Darby Real Estate back in 2001. McHugh was a one-term Coeymans Town Supervisor back then. McHugh acquired a number of properties in the Town of Coeymans and “the McHugh family” held real estate in the Town of Coeymans and the Village of Ravena. McHugh acquired the Blaisdell Farm property (now accessed along North Clement Street and Laura Lane) and planned to “develop” that property but the property did not have access to water or sewerage, which was an obstacle to development. Evidence points to McHugh’s possible abuse of his public office as Town Supervisor, and his Republican controlled Town Board, to get the McHugh property annexed by the Village of Ravena, and so to get access to water and sewer. Once McHugh hatched the plan and had the annexation plan rolling in the right direction, he was ready to leave public office, and get back to his real estate operations. After a lawsuit the property was annexed to the Village of Ravena, and McHugh built and sold several single-family residences. We reported on this egregious abuse of office in a Smalbany article.(See our Smalbany article at To McHugh or Not to McHugh.)

A crook before the election will be a crook after the election; if he abused public office before, he’ll probably do it again.

  1. You were appointed to a federal administrative law judgeship. It would appear that you are no longer serving in that capacity. Can you tell us what happened to the judgeship?

McHugh refused to answer this question. McHugh admits his guilt.

In 2015, McHugh was appointed to be an administrative judge for the Social Security’s Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (SSODAR). That appointment was a federal position and was a lifetime appointment. McHugh lasted about a year in the position and then returned to be Carver Laraway’s  general counsel. For most attorney’s such an appointment would be a feather in their cap, a star in their career. But for McHugh, it was an obstacle, because he would not be able to practice law for private clients. In other words, he wouldn’t be Carver Laraway’s general counsel, and make the huge bucks he had his eye on.

McHugh is generally silent as to the reasons why he gave up the judgeship or lost it. True, he does have a history of significant and serious ethical problems. Were they the reason?

Given McHugh’s ethical problems, the ones he was caught with, that is, and his apparent abuse of the Supervisor’s Office in 2001, how can Coeymans residents and voters trust him in 2019, now that he has his eyes on a piece of the pie with Carver Laraway and Lafarge?

In a recent Times Union article and interview done in May 2019 by Laurin Stanworth, “Is Coeymans candidate too close to port owner?” quoting directly from the Stanworth article: “McHugh, who is running as a Republican for the town’s $35,000 part-time post, acknowledged his ongoing connection to Carver Companies. In an interview with the Times Union, he [McHugh] said he would continue to do legal work for Laraway if asked.”

Conflicts of interest before the election are conflicts of interest after the election.

  1. Your campaign slogan is “Take Back Our Town,” from whom do you expect to take it back?

McHugh refused to answer this question. McHugh admits his guilt.

Our research and McHugh’s own statements answer this question: McHugh wants to take back HIS town from honest men and women, and hand it over to his keepers and clients, Carver Laraway and LaFarge. It’s clear from a Times Union interview done in May 2019 by Laurin Stanworth, “Is Coeymans candidate too close to port owner?

Quoting directly from the Stanworth article: “McHugh, who is running as a Republican for the town’s $35,000 part-time post, acknowledged his ongoing connection to Carver Companies. In an interview with the Times Union, he said he would continue to do legal work for Laraway if asked.” What about conflicts of interest? Stanworth asked the question and when “[a]sked about the appearance of conflict of interest in his running for supervisor, McHugh said, “The only people who have brought it up [the question of conflict of interest] is the Times Union.”

That’s not true, McHugh! The question is a glaring question already asked by many people, many times. You and your hoodlums are just ignoring the people.

McHugh would probably respond that if any issues about Carver or LaFarge were to come before the Coeymans Town Board, he would “recuse himself.” Not good enough, Georgie!

You see, McHugh is running with two young pups with no life experience to speak of and certainly no political experience. You might gloss over that by parroting McHugh’s line that the Board needs young people. Or that he wants to appeal to younger voters by having younger running mates. But the actual reason is much darker, much more sinister. You see, if by some catastrophic stroke of bad luck, McHugh were actually to be honestly and legally elected, which is a longshot, indeed, he would control the Coeymans Town Board with at least a 3-2 majority or a 3-1 majority, even if McHugh actually were to recuse himself. Given the characters and immaturity of Zach Collins and Brendan Lefevre, McHugh would have no problem controlling them to do whatever he told them to do. They are mere puppets. Then there’s Daniel “Dan” Baker, who’s already shown himself to be a member of the McHugh camp while being on the Crandall Board.

The point is this: with a Town Board packed with McHugh puppets, McHugh can still recuse himself and still give Carver Laraway or LaFarge exactly what they ask for.

It sure is a “Comeback Team” and they sure will “Take Back” the town, but not like you were thinking and not how they want you to think. McHugh wants a come-back so he can take back the town and get what he wants and what his keepers want. He wants it just like he had it in 2001, when he wanted water and sewer for his planned project.

  1. Who are the Friends of Coeymans? Do they have names?

McHugh refused to answer this question. McHugh admits his guilt.

At this late date, nearly everyone in Coeymans and beyond know who the Friends of Coeymans are, and why they’re known by most residents as the Fiends of Coeymans or the epithet, Coeymans FOCs. We also know what, why, and for whom they are doing what they do. Jeff LaQuire (the Coeymans Clown following people around with his smartphone recorder going), Nate Boomer (Bacon Boy who off camera is a thug, on camera is a pathetic whiner), and Chris Hagen (brother of killer Travis Hagen. By the way, whatever did happen to that investigation.) are McHugh confederates and bullies posing as concerned citizens, but doing McHugh’s dirty work and propaganda for him. McHugh’s using them, advising them, and keeping his own hands clean. That’s how McHugh works: he uses anyone he can to get what he wants. Collins, Lefevre, Baker, 4 wives, anyone.

In general, the FOCs are just ignorant clowns attracting other ignorant clowns to support a self-interested, greedy Scoundrel.

Neonazis. If you have ever had the opportunity to observe their sillyness at a Coeymans Town Board meeting where they make animal noises (which come natural to them), call other residents names, follow attendees around with a smartphone recording or videoing them, interrupting private conversations, force people to leave the meeting and even the Town Hall, make it necessary to have police present at public meetings, you’ll know what we mean when we call them neonazi thugs. They use the same tactics. They are schizoid. One minute, for example, Nate Boomer is in the middle of the FOC pack spewing insults and abuse, and in the next moment, posing for Jeff LaQuire’s video, he’s standing at the mike making a passionate and pitiful appeal for cooperation. The live clown performance at the meeting is to send a message to residents; the video is for posting on their Facebook propaganda site. Reminds you of some third world dictator, doesn’t it?

Thugs before the election are certain to be worse thugs after the election.

Could this be out of the Friends of Coeymans highschool yearbook?

It makes you want to vomit when they then preach freedom of speech, truth, etc. That’s not the message their behavior sends. Ask Coeymans residents.

The real message being sent by Friends of Coeymans, George McHugh’s thugs.

Part II of the McHugh Interview that Wasn’t will be Published on Tuesday, October 29, 2019.
