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.

Will Obama cave into GOP pressure and kill this plan to fight domestic radicalism too?

White House unveils broad plan to fight domestic radicalism 
The strategy calls on federal agencies to help police, schools and community groups prevent violent extremism. 
By Brian Bennett, Washington Bureau 
August 4, 2011 
“The plan did not identify a single agency that would coordinate the initiative, which could cause the effort to fall short, Levitt said.”
The thing is we once had an division of the Department Homeland Security  in place that had nearly the same function.  It  generated this report to law enforcement officials:

A part of the Department of Homeland Security that did much of what is proposed in the new plan to fight domestic terrorism was killed by the Obama Administration because of fierce opposition by the Republican Party and Fox News.  I believe the Republican Party killed the DHS program on domestic terrorist threats because some of the treat came from Tea Party Republicans and the Republicans needed their support in the 2010 elections. 
believe that radicals are now so deeply embedded into the fabric of the Republican Party that an act of domestic terrorism could come from within the ranks of the Republican Party. 

From  Inside the DHS: Former Top Analyst Says Agency Bowed to Political Pressure 
“What was your mission at DHS? 
DHS's mission was identified in the 2002 Homeland Security Act. Part of the department's responsibilities includes identifying and assessing possible terrorist threats to the homeland and notifying law enforcement officers of those threats. We looked at extremist groups who had histories of violent activities, but who might not necessarily be doing anything right now. We also studied radicalization: the process of adopting an extremist belief system and showing a willingness to use or facilitate violence to change the world. We wanted to know how a law-abiding person becomes radicalized to the point of being willing to hurt people. No one else was doing this work from a uniquely domestic, non-Islamic perspective… 
What worries me is the fact that our country is under attack from within, from our own radical citizenry. There have been a lot of small-scale attacks lately, whether it's three mail bombs sent to U.S. government facilities in Maryland and D.C., or a backpack bomb placed near a [Martin Luther King Jr. Day] parade in Spokane, Wash., or two police officers gunned down at a traffic stop in West Memphis, Ark., [by antigovernment extremists in May 2010].  
These incidents are starting to add up. Yet our legislators, politicians and national leaders don't appear too concerned about this. So, my greatest fear is that domestic extremists in this country will somehow become emboldened to the point of carrying out a mass-casualty attack, because they perceive that no one is being vigilant about the threat from within. That is what keeps me up at night."

Fears of far-right rise in crisis-hit Greece 
The Associated Press 
“ATHENS, Greece — They descended by the hundreds -- black-shirted, bat-wielding youths chasing down dark-skinned immigrants through the streets of Athens and beating them senseless in an unprecedented show of force by Greece's far-right extremists.
In Greece, alarm is rising that the twin crises of financial meltdown and soaring illegal immigration are creating the conditions for a right-wing rise -- and the Norway massacre on Monday drove authorities to beef up security. 
The move comes amid spiraling social unrest that has unleashed waves of rioting and vigilante thuggery on the streets of Athens. The U.N.'s refugee agency warns that some Athens neighborhoods have become zones where "fascist groups have established an odd lawless regime."
