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.

Does the GOP Base think white terrorists, Nazis, KKK and Alt-Right terrorists are on the righteous side of murder?

When it was only the JBS, Pat Sellers, Sahas & KKK leader David Wayne Hull in Chester County PA, I could keep up. 

Pat Sellers financial support came from a few Chester County billionaire/multi-millionaire John Birch Society people. 

I thought the JBS was just a fringe group in the Republican Party. 

Back in 2005 the Republicans I worked with were not racist, anti-Semites and certainly not pro-Nazi and I assumed that this was true of most all Republicans. Most Republicans would disapprove of Pat Sellers racism and anti-Semitism. 

Then Donald Trump came along. When Sellers pegged the Republican base voters as racist/anti-Semites he was right on the money.

Terrorism and Pat Sellers

In his “From the Desk of Patrick Henry Sellers” column on “The Coatesville Recorder” Pat Sellers recommended reading the books of William Pierce. One of his books “The Turner Diaries” inspired Timothy McVeigh.

Sellers was a Coatesville School Board member at the time. 

I think Pat Sellers isn’t a terrorist, he’s a politician. Pierce had written “The Turner Diaries” but Pat didn’t specifically recommend reading “The Turner Diaries” and Timothy McVeigh hadn’t yet blown up the Murrah Building.

Pennsylvania Skinhead/KKK

In the 1990s there were Skinheads who had cross burning ceremonies along the Perkiomen Creek in Northwest Montgomery County, PA. They did some bomb making, harassed people and financed themselves by selling drugs. When they decided to expand into bank robbing they were arrested. 
The Skinhead/KKK/Nazis feared the Perkiomen Trail would stop their cross lighting ceremonies, it didn’t. There’s still occasionally a burning cross along the Perkiomen. 

There were people in our area who wanted to be terrorists and kill people but in most cases they were arrested before the killing started.
"They look like us. They sound like us. They are us," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas P. Hogan Jr., assigned to coordinate investigations and prosecute cases with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.

In 2006 it was only John Birch Society white supremacists like Pat Sellers, drug dealers and a few KKK & Skinhead wannabe terrorists in the Coatesville, PA area that I believed were a concern. 

In 2009 “Department of Homeland Security, Daryl Johnson called attention to the threat of far-right extremist groups -- and sparked a political firestorm in the process.”  His small group of intelligence officers analyzing domestic terrorism was shut down by the Republican Party. I believe the Republican Party understood that people Daryl Johnson called ‘terrorists” were supported by Republican Party base voters. 

Daryl Johnson’s report said in part:
"A recent example of the potential violence associated with a rise in rightwing extremism may be found in the shooting deaths of three police officers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on 4 April 2009.  The alleged gunman’s reaction reportedly was influenced by his racist ideology and belief in antigovernment conspiracy theories related to gun confiscations, citizen detention camps, and a Jewish-controlled “one world government.” 

“Edward Perkovic, a friend of Poplawski, said the gunman feared "the Obama gun ban that's on the way" and "didn't like our rights being infringed upon". Perkovic also stated that Poplawski "didn't like the Zionists controlling the media and controlling, you know, our freedom of speech" and that "He didn't like the control of the guns that was about to happen. He believed everything our forefathers put before us and thought that it was being distorted." Another longtime friend, Aaron Vire, said that Poplawski feared President Obama was going to take away his rights.[18] 

Poplawski posted that he believed that "the federal government, mainstream media, and banking system in these United States are strongly under the influence of -- if not completely controlled by -- Zionist interest. An economic collapse of the financial system is inevitable, bringing with it some degree of civil unrest if not outright balkanization of the continental US, civil/revolutionary/racial war . . . This collapse is likely engineered by the elite Jewish powers that be in order to make for a power and asset grab."[19][20] 

On March 13, 2009, Poplawski wrote on a white supremacist website that "ZOG (Zionist-occupied government) is... One can read the list of significant persons in government and in major corporations and see who is pulling the strings. One can observe the policies and final products and should walk away with little doubt there is Zionist occupation and -- after some further research & critical thinking -- will discover their insidious intentions.”[21] 
2009 shooting of Pittsburgh police officers

It appears that the Republican Base believes that white terrorists, Nazis, KKK and Alt-Right terrorists are on the righteous side of murder.

“Earlier this week, Donald Trump described white nationalists who marched with torches intended to evoke the Ku Klux Klan — while chanting phrases borrowed from literal Nazis — as “very fine people.” He then suggested that the white supremacists who rallied in Charlottesville to defend the honor of men who fought to keep dark-skinned people as slaves — and the counterprotesters who gathered to defend the equal dignity of all human beings — were equally to blame for the weekend’s violence (which included one member of the first group plowing a car through members of the latter).

“Finally, the president made it clear that, when comes to the substance of the dispute between the neo-Nazis and the government of Charlottesville, he sides with the skinheads.

Republican elites — and a majority of the American public — were horrified.

But the Republican base was not. A CBS News poll finds that 67 percent of GOP voters approved of Trump’s response to the attack in Charlottesville, while 82 percent of Democrats, and 53 percent of independents disapproved. Although part of the survey was taken before the president’s inflammatory Tuesday press conference, that spectacle did little to dampen Republican enthusiasm for the president’s handling of the matter: Among GOP voters who were interviewed after Trump called white nationalists “very fine people,” 66 percent said he’d done the right thing.”

There’s a constant barrage of stuff like this:

This one is really frightening:

“The Army's Edgewood Chemical Biological Center at Aberdeen Proving Ground has placed an engineer on administrative leave after a civil rights organization accused him of having ties to white supremacy groups.” 

"There's no question that Stortstrom is very much a part of the racist white nationalist scene, as well as an up-and-coming young GOP operative," the SPLC wrote. "But it is Stortstrom's top-security clearance job at the U.S. Army research facility on the Aberdeen Proving Grounds [sic] in Maryland that is really raising eyebrows." 

The allegations against Stortstrom appear to have come to light after he arranged for the Route 40 Republican Club to host Matthew Heimbach, the controversial founder of a White Student Union at Towson University.” 

Army engineer put on leave for alleged white supremacist ties

AND THEN there is our Pennsylvania Republican Party Chairman Val DiGiorgio:

"The president was not wrong to point out what the media has failed to point out," that counter-protesters also "came for a battle" in Charlottesville, said Pennsylvania Republican Chairman Val DiGiorgio. 

DiGiorgio stood by the "many sides" comment Trump made immediately after the clash in Virginia, in which a car was driven into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a woman. The president was criticized harshly by Republicans and Democrats because he didn't immediately denounce the white nationalist groups.

Over the groans of some, Republican National Committee votes to condemn white supremacists
Associated Press

One half of Republicans and nearly all of the Republican Party base have a white supremacist, Nazi/Skinhead value system. Pat Sellers was right all along. 

People that I believed were on the fringes of society were actually make up at least 1/2 of Republican Party voters. You find Republicans who support Skinhead/Nazis wherever you look. 

Some of them will pick up an assault rifle and kill until they are stopped.

Keeping up with right wing terrorists gives me a frapping brain freeze headache.

GOP will vote for silencers and armor piercing bullets. Eric Frien could've shot more PA State Troopers with them.

"Frein is accused of killing State Police Cpl. Bryon Dickson and wounding Trooper Alex Douglass in an ambush on the Blooming Grove barracks on Sept. 12. Police found a diary entry, his AK-47, two homemade pipe bombs and several campsites, they but hadn't been able to capture him until Thursday." 


Eric Frein Was Dedicated to Killing Cops: Pennsylvania Police - NBC News
The NRA would have us believe that deer wear flack jackets. 

Armor piercing bullets and silencers are for use by assassins, like anti-government terrorist assassin Eric Frein. 

"This week, a vote is going to the floor of the House of Representatives that would loosen restrictions on gun silencers and armor-piercing bullets. It’s not hard to learn about how millions of N.R.A. dollars have spread throughout Congress to influence that vote."

Trudeau vs Pussygrabber Trump AND In Canada healthcare is a right

"As an American citizen you may be interested to know that Canada welcomes (even encourages) you to consider becoming a permanent or temporary resident of Canada. 
Many Americans are able to qualify for a Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa under the economic stream of immigration – either the Skilled Worker Category or the Business Category of Canadian immigration. 

A Canadian Permanent Resident may become a Canadian Citizen and receive a Canadian Passport after four years. Canadian citizenship is voluntary and you would not have to relinquish your U.S. citizenship, if you do not wish to. Both Canada and the United States permit dual citizenship." 


A Message for American Citizens 
We receive many inquiries from American citizens about the possibility of Canadian immigration.

"Medicare (Frenchassurance-maladie) is the national health care system of Canada. Canada has a publicly fundedsingle-payer health care system consisting of 13 provincial and territorial health insurance plans that provides universal health care coverage to Canadian citizenspermanent residents and certain temporary residents. It is administered on a provincial or territorial basis, within the guidelines set by the federal government.[1] The formal terminology for the insurance system is provided by the Canada Health Act and the health insurance legislation of the individual provinces and territories."

Chester County Democrats are helping “Needles” Fiorentino's sister, Arden Hunt kick out Coatesville's Chief Laufer

Arden Hunt's Facebook stories about Coatesville Police have been repeated over 4 years until people believe her stories. Now a few Coatesville City Council-people, 3 Democrats and 1 Republican are positioning themselves as heroes in the “He’s a good boy, he gives part of his drug money to his mother” community. 


Thursday, May 9, 2013

Like I said, there are two kinds of politicians in Coatesville and it's not Democratic and Republican. It's anti-drug dealer and pro-drug dealer. 


With assistance from the Chester County Democratic Committee a new "Girl Gang" city council is coming.

Coatesville City Council Democrats, Carmen Green, Marie Lawson and, if elected, Deborah Thompson along with Republican Linda Lavender-Norris, are set to fire Chief Laufer, Det. Joe Thompson and Coatesville City Manager Mike Trio. 

"Detective Joseph Thompson and others like him must GO! They should be removed immediately.” - Arden Hunt


Coatesville's drug dealers are alleged to feel safer now that Fiorentino is back in prison. 

The "old head" said he was looking for someone that night on Merchant St in Coatesville. Fiorentino had gun at his waist and one strapped to his ankle. What was his plan? 


"James # 
The writer of this needs to follow up with the “young black men in Coatesville’s poorest neighborhoods” who have thanked the police department for getting Fiorentino off the street. Needles is an animal; not a human, and should be kept in a cage. His mother produced one son who is in jail for life for murder, this animal who, with 2 prior convictions for armed robbery, is running around with 2 stolen guns and shooting at police. And he wasn’t looking in car windows? Who’s the old head that he got in a fight with a few nights prior? Who called Needles to tell him that the Old Head was sitting 
in the car down the street? This animal was out hunting and got what he deserved. 

Live by the gun, die by the gun. Don’t blame the cops cause your brother got caught…"

Dispatches from the Underclass 
Black Man Charged With Attempted Murder of Cops Who Nearly Killed Him Says He Was Unarmed 
by Rania Khalek on December 26, 2013 

This happened the last time a Coatesville City Council kicked out a good Police Chief:



"Arden Hunt, Fiorentino’s sister, spoke on his behalf after having attended all of the June trial. She said her family had suffered because of his arrest, largely because her mother did not have him to help care for his disabled step-father.

'My brother deserves a chance to reenter society so he can be the kind of person I know he will be,' Hunt said.”

“WEST CHESTER >> Before sentencing the man convicted of firing gunshots at two Coatesville police officers to a prison term that could keep him behind bars well into his old age, a Common Pleas Court judge on Thursday bemoaned how the defendant had smeared the city as well as threatened the lives of the officers. 

“You have repeatedly let down the community,” Judge Patrick Carmody told Andre Emmet “Needles” Fiorentino as a standing-room courtroom filled with city police officers and members of the Chester County District Attorney’s Office sat and listened. “You have been in and out of jail like it’s a revolving door.” 

“I have a great respect for the citizens of Coatesville,” Carmody said in his 15-minute long lecture to Fiorentino. “I think it gets a bad rap … because of the actions of a few.” He said that evidence showed Fiorentino chose to leave his home and his family the night of the shooting and “put the people who live and work in that city in danger.”
Reciting Fiorentino’s criminal history dating back to his teenage years, Carmody said the defendant was someone who could not control his impulse to commit violent crimes, mainly armed robbery. “You have had a number of chances and you’ve tossed them aside to go out and terrorize the community. We can’t tolerate people shooting at police.”
Calling Coatesville police the “soldiers on the home front” who protect the community, Carmody said that Fiorentino had by firing at them during a street stop in November 2013, “made the community a dangerous place. That is a crying shame.” 

Carmody sentenced Fiorentino, 34, of Coatesville to 25 to 50 years in state prison, on the charges of felony aggravated assault on police officers and three weapons charges. He said he had tailored the sentence so that Fiorentino would “no longer be a threat to society” when he is freed.”

By Michael Rellahan, Daily Local News Updated: on 09/24/2015


In January 2018 a Coatesville City Council installed by the Chester County Democratic Committee is set to run Chief Laufer out of town. 

This happened the last time a Coatesville City Council kicked out a good Police Chief:


Lt. Matt Gordon was described by Joe Carroll as the most knowledgeable narcotics investigator in Chester County. 

Lt. Gordon was removed from the Coatesville PD and put on “administrative leave” by Chief William Matthews in October of 2007 and has not been on the force since then.
District Attorney Joe Carroll said, "I need Matt Gordon back!" while Harry Gordon Walker III pretended to listen.

Below is a live recording from the Coatesville City Council February 22, 2007 Two hundred police officers and police officials attended that meeting.
Joe was responding to Coatesville City Councilperson Kurt Schenk. Joe Carroll is a very easygoing person. 

Joe’s hands were shaking as he said this. I have never before or since seen Chester County District Attorney Joe Carroll as angry as he was that evening:

With Walker and Legree in control we had ONE police officer on duty on Friday and Saturday nights in Coatesville.

The results of all the tampering with the Coatesville PD were predictable; armed robbery, muggings, and shootings all increased dramatically. The news spread that the drug business was good again in Coatesville.
There were regular traffic jams on Lincoln Highway because of drug deals in the street.
Gunshots were heard several times daily. People dug bullets from their walls and sat far away from outside walls and windows.
The Crips, Bloods and SUR-13 were recruiting Coatesville's youth.


The BIG reason EVERYONE but drug dealers wanted Walker gone was that UNDER HIS WATCH COATESVILLE BURNED!

The City of Coatesville possibly joined by the citizens of Coatesville should mount a lawsuit against Harry Gordon Walker III because UNDER HIS WATCH COATESVILLE BURNED."

By IAN URBINA JAN. 28, 2009

Many of us realize that after the arsonist is captured the bullets will still fly in Coatesville. John Pawlowski does not talk about it much but a bullet went through his garage door. RDA Chair Joseph Discullio has dug bullets from his home and business in Coatesville’s West End. A teller in a bank that I frequent told me her husband’s vehicle was totaled by bullet holes when a man was shot in front of her home. AK47 shell casings were found in the streets. There are hundreds of stories like this in Coatesville.  
Because of what might be called a “gag order” on Coatesville Police by City Manager Harry Walker, lesser reported crimes like armed robbery and muggings require reporters to dig through Magisterial Court Records. Many crimes go unreported in the news.
