Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog
Public Corruption in Chester County, PA
I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

Police tape was across the street from Clinton Campaign Headquarters in 2016 at Coatesville, PA. I came in early, told them be careful there was a double murder across the street & might be retaliation. They looked up, giggled & went back to their laptops.

It appears that some members of the traditionally corrupt City of Coatesville City Council are pursuing new frontiers of corruption.
- Illegally micro-managing inside of Coatesville City Hall.
- Allegedly riding along with city codes officers to target political enemies.
- Firing City of Coatesville workers and replacing them with personal friends.

Ok, I know Pat Sellers & his “Bloc of Four” that literally rained down fire on the City of Coatesville is long gone. But anti-government extremists like Pat Sellers now have a HUGE presence in U.S. politics. Take Pat’s buddy, Larry Pratt for instance.

“Sellers, and electrical worker who trails his opponent in the race, has also come under fire recently for seeking the support of Larry Pratt, a former aide to presidential candidate Pat Buchanan.
Pratt is executive director of Gun Owners of America. He left the Buchanan Campaign after the media reported on his ties to the Ku Klux Klan and the white supremacist group Aryan Nation.
Pratt has endorsed Sellers and will be the keynote speaker at a fund-raising dinner for Sellers next week.
Sellers said the allegations against Pratt are untrue and that he sought Pratt’s support because of his expertise on gun issues.” From:

In I think, 2006, I stood up at a Democratic Committee Meeting in West Chester, PA to warn them that Pat Sellers and many people like him were infiltrating the Chester County Republican Committee and installing elected officials in school boards and local offices that would go on to expand and promote right wing anti-government right wing racist extremism when they would later run for higher offices.
Now we have a right wing anti-government extremist President, anti-government racist Supreme Court and anti-government racist Republicans in the House and Senate.
The CCRC and the PA-GOP are dominated by anti-government racist extremists.
'In the clip, Cohen said that he was able to gain access to members of Congress after successfully duping Pratt, which speaks volumes about Pratt’s deep influence among Republicans on Capitol Hill.
“Now that I had this Pratt on board, I was welcomed into the halls of Congress,” Cohen says.
Under Pratt’s leadership, Gun Owners of America has lobbied Congress on behalf of fringe anti-government militia groups for gun laws that make the National Rifle Association look moderate
Despite the fact that Pratt makes frequent references to assassinating political leaders, was forced out of Pat Buchanan’s presidential campaign after his ties to neo-Nazis were revealed, and peddles absurd conspiracy theories about school shootings on par with Infowars’ Alex Jones, Republican politicians still listen to the demands of Gun Owners of America and tout the group’s endorsement.'"

The Trump Administration is tapping into domestic terrorism so that mining and drilling companies can gain access to public lands. WHAT COULD GO WRONG!
It’s impossible to understand today's GOP without understanding right wing extremism & terrorism.
Read SPLCs "Intelligence Reports"
The Koch brothers, big oil and big tobacco created the Tea Party to take over the GOP.
But the Tea Party fraction in Congress went off the rails and developed it's own uncontrollable energy.
Now the Trump Administration is tapping into domestic terrorism so that mining and drilling companies can gain access to public lands. WHAT COULD GO WRONG!
Some experts on domestic extremism say that the Hammonds' pardon is a dangerous gesture by the Trump administration.
"Pardoning the Hammonds, serial arsonists who repeatedly threatened federal employees over the span of decades, sends a terrible and dangerous signal to armed extremists that such actions are justified," says JJ MacNab, (@) a fellow at George Washington University's Program on Extremism. “The militia movement right now is shopping for a cause, and this pardon means that their focus will likely return to public-land politics."
MacNab points to the pardoning of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the acquittal of the Bundy brothers in Oregon, and the mistrial of the Bundy family in Nevada: "The anti-government extremist movement is more excited and confident than I've even seen [it] before. The more victories Trump hands them, the more violent they'll likely turn should the president be impeached, removed from office, or lose to a Democrat in the next general election."
TRUMP IS GOING DOWN, IT'S JUST A MATTER OF WHEN.
WILL THE EXTREME RIGHT EXPLODE IN EXTREME VIOLENCE WHEN TRUMP RESIGNS.

"All that miscommunication, overprosecution, and judicial grandstanding created an opening for Ammon Bundy and his rogue’s gallery of conspiracy theorists and would-be renegades. Allies of the Bundys have openly thirsted for a shooting war with federal officers for years. They almost got one in Malheur. After the feds declined to rush in for a shootout at the buildings the Bundy crew had occupied, Lavoy Finicum and Ammon’s brother Ryan decided to run a checkpoint on a nearby road. By the end of the resulting car chase, Finicum was dead, Ryan was convinced that the feds had tried to assassinate him, and the actual details of what the Hammonds had done a decade earlier were drowned out by the crackpot theories in which the Bundys have long trafficked.
The president is fanning a culture-war fire to help cover up his campaign to hand wilderness to mining companies.

After GOP Candidate for PA Governor Scott Walker's campaign speech with "Second King" Hyung Jin Moon of the Sanctuary Church in Newfoundland Pennsylvania at the Tommy Gun Outlet. It's abundantly clear Scott Walker is a far out there right wing extremist.
“Scott Wagner is propping up an extremist cult leader who wears crowns of bullets and orders women to obey their husbands or face death,” said American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson. “If there was ever any doubt about who Wagner stands with and how wrong his vision is for Pennsylvania, they were erased by this event. There is no excuse for Wagner’s behavior.”
AUDIO: Scott Wagner Campaigns With Fringe Cult Leader Who Orders Women to Obey Husbands or Face Death
Hyung Jin Moon, who leads the Sanctuary Church in Newfoundland, Pennsylvania, and is known as “True Father” and “Second King” to his followers, issued a literal call to arms to members of his anti-LGBT sect last month.
Southern Poverty Law Center:
The audio is hard to understand. Maybe someone will parse it out.

“the Perkiomen Copper Mining Company was chartered by an act of Assembly. The Revolutionary War seems to have interrupted mining operations, as evidence points to the fact that the vein was hidden and work stopped to prevent the British from procuring the ore.”
“An attempt to re-open the mine prior to World War I proved unprofitable because of the low-grade ore that was found,”
“Over the years, many strange tales of the mine were circulated, one of which involves two adventurers who were determined to find the hidden ore. They entered the shaft with candles and began working at removing some heavy stones that blocked their way. After the removal of several stones, an icy blast hit them and blew out the candles. They hastily withdrew, claiming that a "spirit" of the mine guarded the treasure.”

Here in Coatesville, we know what the people in Boise feel. The look on the face of a man standing by a “have you seen Aaron Turner” poster told me something terrible happened.
Photography keeps me out of despair.
