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.

Coatesville City Council, in a 4/3 decision, voted to stop construction of the renovations to Coatesville City Hall

My Uncle Fred Pitcherella was a combat engineer. He landed on Omaha Beach in Normandy.
My children watched Uncle Fred place maggots on an open sore on his foot to eat away dead flesh.
Constantly under fire, he fought across France in wet boots. He dried his feet three months after landing in Normandy. He was left with a fungus infection that lasted until he died.
I wonder what Uncle Fred would think of President Trump’s plans for a Nazi America.
"Following his appointment as chancellor by President Paul von Hindenburg on January 30, 1933, Adolf Hitler began laying the foundations of the Nazi state. Guided by racist and authoritarian principles, the Nazis eliminated individual freedoms and pronounced the creation of a Volk Community (Volksgemeinschaft)—a society which would, in theory, transcend class and religious differences."
UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM
It's briefly outlined in this Huffington Post article:
WASHINGTON — Let’s be clear about what President Donald Trump was up to Tuesday during his press conference in Trump Tower, and what his longer-range plan is for surviving, if not prospering, in the White House for at least four years.
Speaking publicly in the family fortress in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, he wasn’t trying to convince anyone of the facts. There could be no dispute about them if you saw, say, the Vice video of hideous neo-Nazis, KKK members, generic white supremacists and rancid anti-Semites in the streets carrying torches and chanting “Jews will not replace.”
No, the president was doing something else: trolling the media, deliberately goading reporters he knew were waiting for him in his echoing marble lobby. He basked in their urgent outrage and determined focus on Charlottesville. He had scripted himself as the alt-right’s Daniel in a “fake news” lion’s den of his own devising.
Was he upset by the resulting headline and denunciations from the likes of the former presidents Bush, father and son? Hardly. He had sought them. In fact, word on Wednesday was that Trump had been in a good, almost celebratory, mood Tuesday after the confrontation he’d created. He had unleashed himself, perhaps once and for all. He was in the fight, and the fight is all.
Donald Trump seems perfectly willing to destroy the country to maintain his own power.
More broadly and big-picture, look for more of the same. Having risen to power by dividing the country, his party leadership and even, at times, his own campaign team, his aim now is to divide or discredit any institution, tradition or group in his way.
Donald Trump seems perfectly willing to destroy the country to maintain his own power. He is racing to undermine the federal political system — if not all American public life — before still-independent forces (for now, the federal courts, the press and Congress) undermine him.
The goal, as always with Trump, is to win amid the chaos he sows, to be the last man standing in rubble. And “winning” is rapidly being reduced to the raw, basic terms he prefers: brute survival. With a record-setting low approval rating, world crises everywhere and a special counsel on his tail, the main victory he can hope for is staying in office.
It’s not only an emotional imperative for Trump, it’s a deliberate ― and thus far successful ― strategy.
I am told by lawyers familiar with special counsel Robert Mueller’s methods and those of similar investigations that Mueller almost certainly obtained the president’s federal tax returns long ago. Whether Trump knows that directly or not, he has to assume it — and be driven wild by it. The counsel also has assembled an industrial-strength team of experts in international money-laundering, criminal tax fraud and forensic accounting.
So the survival urge is more urgent.
How does he do it? Here is some of what’s ahead:
More white-right protests
Tuesday, August 15, 2017
In the VICE News video below notice how many, mostly concealed, weapons Christopher Cantwell carried at the Charlottesville, “Rally”:
AK-47 - Kel-Tec P3AT - .380 ACP - Glock 19, 9millimeter - Ruger LC9, also 9 millimeter - knife - a second back up AK - 47.
Local residents need to add extremist behavior to their "street smarts." If shooting starts fall to the ground.
"Residents may not have noticed them, but they were here when they set off pipe bombs, test-fired machine guns and taught bomb-making classes.
They blended right in.
"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.
Before international terrorists took the spotlight, there were men like Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, a domestic terrorist executed by lethal injection on June 11, 2001, for the attack that killed 168 people and wounded hundreds more.
"To effectively combat terrorism, whether international or domestic, what you need are human sources -- spies, informants," explained Hogan. "They need to penetrate into the terrorist organization on a long-term basis."
Obtaining such inside information was critical in convicting David Wayne Hull -- a self-declared Imperial Wizard of the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan who operated a "cell" in western Chester County -- of a number of weapons charges, witness tampering and a charge of instructing others how to use a pipe bomb in furtherance of a federal crime.
Hull, 41, of Washington County, was found guilty of seven of 10 charges after a trial in May. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Margaret Picking. Hull was defended by W. Penn Hackney."
Klansman faces sentencing on weapons, bomb charges

Jesus, Oklahoma City again. Our former neighbors lived there when Timothy McVeigh blew up the Murrah Building.
So much for III%ers standing for truth, justice and the American way:
When you see a Confederate flag proudly flying at a Chester County PA home, know that a swastika is inside.
They stealthy installed a mostly black Coatesville City Council that was ignorant of the racist libertarian fascist origins of the Saha "Save our Farm" campaign. The purpose of Pat Seller's "Save our (Saha) Farm" campaign was ending the revitalization of Coatesville and bankrupting the City of Coatesville.

miles each missile carries 6 nuclear reentry vehicles.
Bakker revealed on his program today that he and his wife Lori were in the White House on the day that Anthony Scaramucci was fired from his short stint as White House communications director, noting that it was not a coincidence that Scaramucci was let go at the moment when George O. Wood, who heads the General Council of the Assemblies of God, spoke out against “unnecessary swearing” during a meeting with White House staff.
"These days, Bakker speaks openly of his inglorious past (while still denying his guilt), and how he immersed himself in the word of God while ensconced in a minimum-security lockup, which he credits for his miraculous “restoration” and highly unlikely comeback story. His recent benefactor and—by all appearances—business partner, Crawford, is said to have invited Bakker and his wife to broadcast from his Branson redoubt to thank Bakker for saving his once-troubled marriage.
A savvy marketing move, as it turns out: Now a goodly chunk of Bakker’s endlessly looping show is devoted to promoting real estate rentals and sales at Morningside. Given its eerie similarity to the Heritage USA operation, one prays that Bakker’s involvement is closely vetted by lawyers and tax accountants to make sure he doesn’t again wind up doing crossword puzzles in an orange jumpsuit.
His newfangled hybrid of religion and retail—which one might fancifully dub a mutant strain of PTL and QVC—may call into question what percentage of Bakker’s enterprise is tax-free (under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code governing charitable organizations), and which is subject to federal tithing requirements. Although Bakker does occasionally tote and quote from the New Testament (which he also sells on his website, in various versions and color schemes), most of the broadcast is dedicated to hustling hard goods that can be actually bought for 50 cents on the dollar at competing survival-minded websites.
And according to a retired IRS investigator, customers/parishioners who “donate” funds in exchange for Bakker’s giant buckets of “creamy potato soup” and the like can write off only the amount exceeding the fair market value of the goods received. Those hoping to deduct the entire $9,660 purchase of, say, the Time of Trouble Italiano Marinara Offer (that’s seven years or 7,728 servings of pasta) should look again at the fine print. As for the taste? Well, you can watch a professional chef prepare and (attempt to) eat the stuff here.
Then again, if you bought such stuff for
less, you wouldn’t benefit from the daily parade of bug-eyed pessimists whom Bakker features on his show. One such guest, a rabbi named Jonathan Cahn, author of The Mystery of the Shemitah, regularly discusses end-time events, while hosting guided tours of Israel on the side. And of course, DVDs of these boondoggle/pilgrimages are for sale on the show! The Bakkers are front and center, alongside right-wing kook Joseph Farah of World Net Daily (Cahn’s publisher). More recently, the couple are shown cavorting about St. Kitts and Nevis, where Bakker claims he’s in talks with the prime minister about erecting a shortwave transmitter.
“We can’t do it alone, people,” Bakker repeatedly says in his plea for more money, citing the need for a hilltop chapel, a new grand piano or a home for pregnant teens. Thus, there’s always a new product on the hustings to breathlessly hype, followed by nightmare-inducing tales of the coming terrible times. (Bakker loves to bring up the dreaded “electromagnetic pulses,” which he promises will kill up to 95 percent of humanity, while destroying the grid and world financial system simultaneously.) Cream of potato soup, anyone?"
