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.

I believe the John Birch Society and the tenants of the John Birch Society are driving Republican Party policy at the federal level and in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, State House and to a lesser degree the PA Senate. I think Governor Corbett may be a closeted John Birch Society member.  My beliefs come from personal experience with John Birch Society members in the City of Coatesville. 

Several years ago in the Lobby of the City of Coatesville City Hall I was surrounded by about 10 people screaming "Communist" at me. I had dared to say the City Council meetings were a place where individuals could get together as a community. I had no idea I was part of a Communist plot called Agenda 21

The welcome statement at the top of this blog is a statement of fact and the "white nationalist" "Don't Tread on Me" nutcases are still slithering around Chester County, PA. Their poison is lethal to Democracy.
“I’ve been a member of the John Birch Society for almost 20 years and have been a chapter leader since the early 90’s. I’m not on their paid field staff, so I speak to you today not on behalf of the Society, but as one who firmly believes their mission statement of “Less government, more individual responsibility and with God’s help, a better world”, to be the best philosophy to live by.”
Patrick Sellers, from his “Abolish the Income Tax” speech 4/15/2009
Pat Sellers served as Board President, Coatesville Area School District 1996:
“If you have school age children, the best thing you can do is keep your children out of the government schools as they have become mere indoctrination centers. One school near me has been showing the highly discredited Al Gore environmental documentary and passing it off as education! If you can manage, home schooling is the best way to educate your children. If that’s not possible, please consider one of your local religious schools.”
Patrick Sellers, from his “Abolish the Income Tax” speech 4/15/2009
Here in Coatesville, PA  you may remember Pat Sellers as the author of 3 Amendments to Coatesville’s Home Rule Charter, which voters passed in 2003. They were struck down as illegal. He helped Dick and Nancy Saha "Save our Farm". He also was instrumental in the election of the “Bloc of Four” Coatesville City Council in 2005. He said he wrote much of the text for the “Coatesville Recorder”.

Agenda 21 and looming battles over urban development

By Marlys Harris | 05/24/12
"What do bike lanes, historic preservation, light-rail development, protection of open space and energy conservation have in common?
Silly me, I thought that they were things that local governments -- not to mention ordinary people and private corporations -- were putting in place to make the urban environment more pleasant and efficient.
Grouped under the heading "sustainability," they, along with many other measures, aim to maintain air and water quality and safeguard other resources so that our world doesn't wind up looking like something from “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy. In case you haven't read the book or seen the movie, it's about a father and son traveling across a post-apocalyptic landscape, where neither animals nor vegetation grows and where starving humans eat each other for lunch.
Who wouldn't want to avoid that?
Turns out, some people don't see sustainability as a good thing. To them it is an evil conspiracy whose tenets are embodied in a 20-year-old United Nations resolution ominously called Agenda 21. I only learned about it last weekend at the state GOP convention in St. Cloud when a man in a dark blue sports jacket thrust a paper about it into my hands as I was entering the powder room and rudely suggested I read it on the potty.
OK, I had nothing else to read; so I did. The four-page pamphlet proclaimed that Agenda 21 is a "communist plot...leading inevitably to the end of private property and forced abortions as a way of controlling population growth." The state of Tennessee, I learned, had already passed a law against it, asserting that "this United Nations Agenda 21 plan of radical so-called sustainable development views the American way of life of private property ownership, single-family homes, private-car ownership and individual travel choices and privately-owned farms all as destructive to the environment." If the U.N. had its way, our entire country would be turned over to wildlife.
Lurking behind all this, said the flyer, is a suspicious-sounding group called ICLEI or the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives which is in cahoots with the U.S. Conference of Mayors, the American Planning Council, the National League of Cities and others to bring sustainable development to every government in every town, county and state.
First shot
The pamphlet may be the first shot across the bow in Minnesota on behalf of a movement sweeping the country. Anti-Agenda 21 and anti- sustainability, it has its roots in the Tea Party and other libertarian groups who oppose any kind of smart growth, urban planning, density, mass transit and environmental regulation. All that stuff, they claim, will add up to a New World Order, which will have Americans squished into high-rise stacks and made to travel to work on trains and buses."

I wonder how many people in the Coatesville area thought the Marriott Courtyard Hotel and the redevelopment of Coatesville was a part of a Communist plot? I can think of a few.

The revitalization of the City of Coatesville is beginning.There was a concerted effort to kill it before it was born.
