                                                 Gateway taxes cut in half

Click on images for LARGEJT Article Gateway

However, what The Journal Times and local Republican Robin “BOSS” Vos  failed to mention was that Gateway Technical College would use that tax-shifting to:

1. Increase spending by 3% in their 2015 Budget.

2013-2014 Spending = $86,664,000

2014-2015 Spending = $88,466,000

2. Have their unelected Board borrow $10,000,000 without a referendum by issuing General Obligation Bonds, thus adding to their debt service and taxpayer expenses.

Since Act 145 was signed into law on March 24, 2014 by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Gateway Technical College’s unelected board has issued 3 General Obligation Bonds for a total of $10,000,000 without a referendum.

3. By lowering Gateway’s debt, Robin Vos enabled them to pull an end-around Wisconsin State Statute 67.03(9) , for Bryan Albrecht’s future planned expansion because property values have continued to decline in the District:

WI Stat 67.03 (9): For any technical college district, the bonded indebtedness for the purpose of purchasing school sites and the construction and equipping of school buildings may not exceed 2% of the value of its taxable property as equalized for state purposes.

Item 2: Straight from Moody’s:

Gateway Borrowing Moody's 1

The Unelected Robber-Barons of Gateway Technical College thank District Taxpayers for accepting their role as Mushrooms – being kept in the dark,  being fed Bullshit, and passively accepting it.

Gateway’s unelected Robber-Baron Board Borrowing from 2014 to 2011, prior to Act 145, from Moody’s:

Moodys 3

That’s $46,1000,000 since 2/17/2011, (3 years!)  being borrowed by Gateway Technical College’s unelected Robber-Baron Board. Why did State Representative Robin  Vos just enable Gateway to borrow more, increase spending, and further burden Wisconsin Businesses and Taxpayers? And where were the referendums? That’s right! There were none!

Except for the failed April 1, 2014 Gateway referendum which asked for $49M.

And now that the 2014 election is over, and Republican Governor Scott Walker and State Representative Robin  Vos were reelected,  the truth was finally revealed! WHOOPS!

Walker's Budget Deficit

*Cognitive Dissonance:

Cognitive Dissonance

Now that the Wisconsin 2014 election is safely over….

From The Cap Times, November 21, 2014:

Projected state revenues will fall $2.2 billion short of what state agencies have requested for the 2015-17 budget, Gov. Scott Walker’s administration reported Thursday.

Where Democrats see a “staggering” deficit in the Department of Administration’s budget memo, Republicans see “positive indicators” of Wisconsin’s economy recovery.

Agencies will not receive all the funding they ask for, which means the shortfall won’t be exactly what’s shown in the November report. But the current estimate also does not account for income and property tax cuts promised by Walker for the next budget.

And from Econbrowser:

Econbrowser
 .

And While Governor Scott Walker, prior to his re-election, bragged about cutting taxes and opening Wisconsin for Business, now that he is safely re-elected, it’s another WHOOPS!

November 15,2014, from The Wisconsin State Journal:

New taxes, higher fees proposed by state transportation department

Drivers in Wisconsin would have to pay an additional $751 million in taxes and fees over the next two years if a new transportation budget request is approved.

Faced with a looming budget shortfall, the state Department of Transportation wants to create a fee for new cars, increase fees on electric and hybrid vehicles, raise taxes on diesel fuel and add a new variable gas tax.

The transportation department’s 2015-17 budget request submitted late Friday also calls for an increase in the use of the state’s general fund revenue. It came just over a week after Republican Gov. Scott Walker, who touted tax cuts on the campaign trail, won re-election.

While State Representative Robin Vos threatened to not fund a new Bucks Arena with public money because the owner met with Barack Obama. However “BOSS” Vos did add that funding to the tune of $150,000,000 in G.O. Bonds may be possible since the taxes that the Players currently pay $10.7M in jock taxes which  would cover the bond expenses. But what Robin Vos failed to mention is that moving that $10.7M to debt service would leave a $10.7M hole in the general fund and those  taxes would be placed on the backs of Wisconsin working families (many who can’t even dream of affording to attend a Bucks game – much less want to attend a Bucks game) and Businesses.

THAT’S JUST WRONG!

November 14, 2014, from The Journal Times:

                    ‘Viable option’ seen for arena funding

ROCHESTER — After making headlines this week in the debate over a new Milwaukee Bucks arena, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos on Friday released a report showing a possible path forward for state support.

The Legislative Fiscal Bureau report showed that NBA players paid $10.7 million in income taxes to the state in 2012. That money, also called a “jock tax,” could support $150 million in state general obligation bonds for the new arena, the agency said in its report to Vos.

“This is one viable option that the Legislature could consider,” said Vos, R-Rochester, in a statement.

Controversial comments

Vos found himself in the middle of the arena debate this week after comments he made about Lasry.

Lasry, a longtime Democratic donor, greeted President Barack Obama in Milwaukee last month, which Vos said “probably wasn’t the wisest decision” with the Bucks seeking public money and Republicans in control of state government.

“It makes it harder for me to sell to our caucus,” Vos said on WISN’s “Up Front with Mike Gousha.” “They’ve got to be a lot smarter with their technique.”

 So with Wisconsin on the path to a “coming soon to you” $2.2 Billion + economic disaster under Governor “Wrong Way” Walker,  in the ironies of irony, State Representative Robin “BOSS” Vos attacks political opportunist and Democrat Racine Mayor John Dickert for engaging in the same political deception, tricks, and treachery:

October 29, 2014, from The Journal Times:

Vos questions city plan

RACINE — State Rep. Robin Vos is asking for details about a city plan to use borrowed funds to pay for $550,000 in engineering department wages next year, and raising concerns that the proposal might violate the state’s property tax cap law.

In a letter sent to Mayor John Dickert on Wednesday, Vos, a Republican from Rochester and the Assembly Speaker, wrote that the proposal appears to “skirt levy limit regulations.”

“As you know, state statutes authorize bonding for capital projects, including associated design costs,” the letter states. “Based on your proposed budget, it is not readily apparent to me how the city plans to make this transfer and remain in compliance with state law.”

The letter from WI State Representative (R) Robin “BOSS” Vos to Racine Mayor (D) John Dickert is below:

And Racine Mayor (D) John Dickert’s Reply, which basically states that; Who cares if it hurts Wisconsin Working Families and Businesses or that it may be against the law – Wisconsin Republicans and Wisconsin Democrats are both doing it and Wisconsin taxpayers are only dumb Cows to be milked and bilked.

And so the Cognitive Dissonance rages in Wisconsin as the (R) Fascists argue with the (D) Socialists and Wisconsin continues to slide towards economic ruin. Have you had enough of the lies, cheating, stealing by the Wisconsin Republicans and Democrats yet? There is not an ounce of difference between them – except for how they plan to economically destroy Wisconsin! It’s killing Wisconsin’s Working Families and Businesses.

From Against Crony Capitalism:

Most people who read this website probably know where we land on this question. The two ideologies have the same father and are not really that different from one another. Both are collectivist dreams. Both venerate the state over the individual. Both are obsessed with works projects and managing the economy. Both see the ends as justifying the means.

And yet by some bizarre accident (actually it’s not really that much of an accident) of history fascism has somehow become associated with the “Right” and socialism with the “Left.” Part of the problem is that the terms “Right” and “Left” don’t really make much sense. There are those who are for more statism and there are those who are for less statism. Both Nazis and Communists are for ever more power to the state. Those with a classically liberal drift are on the other end of the political spectrum (assuming we want to be intellectually honest).

According to a group member, a liberal estimate of the number of surveillance cameras in operation in Manhattan is now more than 10,000. This pales in comparison to London, the city with the highest concentration of surveillance cameras, where it is estimated there are 10,000 cameras in operation in London’s financial district alone.

The location of surveillance cameras is noticeably peculiar considering their perceived purpose of crime prevention. Cameras are installed in predominantly rich zones of the city and markedly not in zones where there is high crime (the predominantly poorer zones). Cameras are also installed predominantly in crowded thoroughfares rather than in back alleys. Cameras are frequently installed within private property (though technically legal) but are obviously directed at monitoring public space.

Most people know that jazz and swing were immediately banned upon Hitler’s ascension to power in 1933. Swing represented the decadent society of America, while jazz threatened the racial purity of the Aryan race. A deep-rooted anti-Semitism underlay these attitudes: Swing was one component of modernism (“the refuse of a rotting society”); and jazz was being used by the Jews to corrupt the Aryan race through “musical race defilement.” Music at the home front had to conform to the traditionalist tastes of Hitler and the Nazi elite, but when it came to propaganda aimed at foreign countries, swing and jazz seemed the perfect bait. Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels was always sensitive to the enormous influence of the radio, which he viewed as second only to the press as the “most effective weapon in our struggle for existence.”

Does The City of Racine Have a “Secret Coffin Fund”?

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Allegations recently surfaced that The City of Racine has a secret “coffin fund” to finance the Defendants in the RICO lawsuit who were not covered by The City of Racine’s Insurance.

The story broke at Racine In Ruins – However when Racine Exposed pressed for a source – the only source provided was “Jim Spodick’s Belief”

Jim Spodick’s Belief.

That was it.  No more to the story. At which point Racine Exposed advised Racine In Ruins to PULL THE POST – which no longer appears at Racine In Ruins.

Of course. Jim Spodick has been at odds with the City of Racine before:

While the post at Racine In Ruins has been pulled, Racine Community Media still has this post:

IS THE CITY OF RACINE REALLY BROKE? ALLEGATIONS BEGIN TO SURFACE OF A HIDDEN MONEY ACCOUNT REFERRED TO AS THE “COFFIN ACCOUNT” WHERE TAXPAYER MONEY IS SECRETLY KEPT AND DISPERSED TO CLOSE FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF CITY HALL’S CHOOSING!!!!

ALLEGATIONS THAT OVER $50 THOUSAND DOLLARS HAS BEEN DISPERSED OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS TO A COUPLE LUCKY FRIENDS IN NEED!!! MORE DETAILS AS THEY UNFOLD!!

 

OK.

Still waiting for the details. Where are they and who is the source? Outside of Jim Spodick’s head?

Meanwhile – the RICO Lawsuit Litigants have agreed to a Gag Order! How does that help City of Racine Taxpayers who are funding their defense? City of Racine Taxpayers work hard long hours to pay Mayor John Dickert for all his words of Wisdom! Just take a look at a recent brain scan of John Dickert!

Recent Brain Scan of John Dickert: (actual)Brain Scan of John Dickert

And will City of Racine Taxpayers or their insurance pay any settlement agreed to with a confidentiality clause? If they do…

That’s just plain WRONG!

From The League of Wisconsin Municipalities:

As for Jim Spodick’s  Racine Equality Project – when will the remaining members, many who are investors into the RICO lawsuit – which does have merit –  call for an injunction to end  the City of Racine Taxpayers from paying the costs of the Defendants AND potentially paying out on an Out of Court settlement whose costs will be picked up by City of Racine taxpayers?

It’s time to end the Gag Order, demand criminal charges against the Defendants, and release the City of Racine Taxpayers from any liability in this suit! Why is the Racine Equality Project silent on this issue?  Is it because Jim Spodick and other investors plan to profit from this action?

Perhaps The Racine Equality Project should change it’s LOGO:

Volunteers of America – More On Monte Osterman’s Root River Council Fraud – With WI State Rep. Cory Mason and WI State Senator John Lehman

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Who knew what and when is certainly the question of the day – but while WI State Representative Cory Mason was at ground floor level knowledge from day one – WI State Senator John Lehman was also presented with direct knowledge on June 5th. 2014, YET failed to act? WHY? And why does the fraud continue with the blessing of Racine County Executive Jim Ladwig, who also has direct knowledge?

On June 5th, 2014, Common Cause Wisconsin held an event at Olympia Brown Church in Downtown Racine.

Next Thursday night, Common Cause in Wisconsin is holding a free public forum at the Olympia Brown Unitarian Universalist Church entitled: “Political Reform in Wisconsin: Where Things Stand.” The event will run from 6:30 to 8 PM and will include a lengthy Q&A with the audience

We urge citizens from Racine and surrounding communities to attend this important issues forum.

Common Cause 1

At that June 5th. 2014 meeting which was held in Downtown Racine at Olympia Brown Church, two local activists handed out informational flyers concerning the Root River Council fraud. Special consideration was made to assure the information was placed in the hands of WI State Senator John Lehman and WI State Representative Cory Mason. The mission was accomplished, and Cory Mason was personally presented with a copy of the Root River Council Inc’s. Corporate certificate from the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions, and knowledge that the IRS did not recognize Monte Osterman’s Root River Council Business as a legitimate Non-Profit Organization:

Nov. 19 RRC

In fact, this letter from the IRS to Dated March 29, 2014 PROVES that the IRS still did not recognize Monte Osterman’s Business, Root River Council as a legitimate Non-Profit Organization over 2 years after Monte Osterman incorporated Root River Council.

Click on Image for large:

RRC March 29, 2014

 RRC March 29,2014 - 2

RRC March 29, 2014 - 3

The Following is from the Informational Flyer that was presented to WI State Senator John Lehman and WI State Representative Cory Mason:

                             The Root River Council INC. Fraud
1. In an April 1, 2013 Meeting, The Redevelopment Authority of the City of Racine decided to implement Root Works by applying for a Knowles-Nelson Stewardship grant, on their own, without first seeking permission from the Common Council, in direct violation of City of Racine Ordinance Section 2-332(4). They also failed to go for bids on appraisals and acted outside the bounds of their statutory authority on numerous occasions. The project also removes 5 properties worth $337,000 from the tax rolls and shifts $12,527 in property taxes to others.
2. In a March 6, 2014 article from The Journal Times, Matt Sadowski lied, falsely claiming he had just been advised about receiving approval for the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Grant he falsely claimed to have applied for in December 2014. Official documents prove he applied for the grant on May 1, 2013 and received confirmation from the DNR on September 18, 2013.
3. The deceit of Monte Osterman, who secretly Incorporated the Root River Council INC. on 01/06/2012, Entity ID# R055980, Registered Agent MONTE OSTERMAN,524 MONUMENT SQ.
SUITE 100, RACINE , WI 53403, per the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institution records.
4. The deceit of Monte Osterman in using his Corporate Organization, Root River Council, INC., to lobby for the purchase of the West Bluff Mound Avenue properties, while he failed to disclose that he would personally benefit from the sale by receiving relocating fees while his tenant business provided additional property value to the owner of the 1251 Mound Avenue Property. This is in violation of Racine County Ordinance Section 2-423 (b): Economic and personal gain.
5. The deceit of Monte Osterman in violating Racine County Ordinance Section 2-426 (a) (1): Business ownership, by failing to disclose ownership of his Business, Root River Council INC., as required by his Employer, The County of Racine.
6. The deceit and potentially ILLEGAL actions of Monte Osterman in fraudulently claiming Non-Profit status, a status not supported by the IRS, while asking for donations and describing his organization. EXAMPLES: 1.) In a August 12, 2013 WISN 12 article, 10 Ways to Volunteer for Clean Water, donations to the non-profit water protection organization, (the) Root River Council is suggested as a way to protect our precious waters. 2.) Ben Lehner, Executive Director, Root River Council, while participating in the SOI Region 2025 Industry Opportunities, March 7 and 14, 2014, fraudulently claimed “The Root River Council (is) a non-profit focused on redeveloping Racine’s Root River. 3.) The Root River Council Facebook page falsely states it is a “Non-Profit Organization”.
7. Marty Defatte,a member of the Root River Council, INC., is also acting as a Real Estate Agent by representing the Owner of the property at 1251 Mound Avenue, where County Supervisor Monte Osterman, whose Business IS the Root River Council, INC., is also a Tenant. Marty Defatte has publicly denied, in The Journal Times, of having any knowledge that 1251 Mound Avenue was to be acquired for Root Works. Denying knowledge of the purchase is NOT plausible.
8. The action of various Government Officials involved is an affront to Democratic principles. Many of these meetings were conducted in secret, numerous Ordinances were violated, Monte and Mary Osterman were John Dickert Mayoral election campaign workers, and now the use of Eminent Domain is being called for by Matt Sadowski to forcefully take property away from unwilling sellers. Therefore the Mound Avenue acquisition must be rejected due to the FRAUD committed.

Why did Monte Osterman and Cory Mason lie? Simple – because their actions (lobbying and using public office for private gain)  would violate IRS Rules and Regulations along with Wisconsin State Laws.

Rebecca and Cory Mason

Racine County Supervisor Monte Osterman’s Business, Root River Council, fraudulently used a number initially supplied by the IRS (pending approval)  to apply for Wisconsin State Grants from the DNR, Wisconsin Coastal Management Program, and others, which was then used to influence legislation and projects which would benefit Monte Osterman (himself) and others in his organization, while Monte Osterman and Cory Mason evaded Wisconsin Laws which would have required them to register as LOBBYISTS – which would have made Monte Osterman’s Root River Council business ineligible for Non-Profit Status. Racine Mayor John Dickert sits on the Board of the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program, while former homebuilder/developer Cathy Stepp is the Secretary of the DNR. They provided the cover.

Root Works Ripping Off The Taxpayer Again

While Republican Jane Nikolai sat on the Board of Monte Osterman’s Business;  Root River Council.

Racine County Treasurer Jane Nikolai

It’s just another part of SCAM-O-RAMA Racine. Racine County is #1 in Corruption. Will the suckers taxpayers of Racine County ever get any real relief? (Grants are taxpayer money given away) And when does the corruption end?

Racine Racketeers

 Just ask Racine County Supervisor Monte Osterman, Carpetbagging Cory Mason, Lying John Dickert, or hear/see/do no evil John Lehman – (at taxpayer expense)

The cost of doing business with Boss Vos

If Democratic politicians told Assembly Speaker Robin Vos that because of his political affiliation his business would not qualify for tax credits or any other state aid, Vos would be outraged. However when Boss Vos publicly shakes down a business owner, it is just the cost of doing business in Wisconsin.

After four separate election cycles in four years centering mainly on economic development and job growth, Wisconsin voters have heard a lot of lofty rhetoric about making Wisconsin “Open for Business” and continuing the Wisconsin “comeback.” With discussion of a new arena in downtown Milwaukee, the state has a unique and prominent role to play in the proposal. However, Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has made clear that his only criteria for any state aid to any business is their political support.

From The Journal Times:

Viable option’ seen for arena funding

ROCHESTER — After making headlines this week in the debate over a new Milwaukee Bucks arena, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos on Friday released a report showing a possible path forward for state support.

The Legislative Fiscal Bureau report showed that NBA players paid $10.7 million in income taxes to the state in 2012. That money, also called a “jock tax,” could support $150 million in state general obligation bonds for the new arena, the agency said in its report to Vos.

“This is one viable option that the Legislature could consider,” said Vos, R-Rochester, in a statement.

The facility is projected to cost between $400 million and $500 million. The Bucks have already secured $100 million commitments from former owner Herb Kohl and current owners Marc Lasry and Wesley Edens.

SO, in other words:

Robin Vos wants to leverage a claimed $10.7 M in income taxes paid by NBA players into $150 M of G.O. debt financed by taxpayers WITH INTEREST over time! Thanks to Robin Vos for making the Children of Wisconsin families responsible for funding the salaries of NBA players.

Robin Vos is a frothing at the mouth Fascist – melding Corporate NON-PRODUCTIVE private Enterprises (NBA) with Corporate State finances.

This is disgusting and wrong!

The Taxpayers of Wisconsin will soon come to regret re-electing Scooter, Vos, and other Republi-thugs into power sooner – rather than later – as their Corporate welfare destroys yet more private industry which is ACTUALLY productive in Wisconsin!

Fascist (R) Robin Vos is a dickhead. Seriously.

Robin Vos is a dickhead

But just ask any Drunk Republican – i.e. Fascist in Disguise: Gotta Keep ‘a Running to pay that Corporate welfare tax!


Fascist Robin Vos – moving Wisconsin working Families forward into Poverty, Bankruptcy and Homelessness. You gotta have priorities!

Justice 4 Angel! Be There Saturday November 15 At Downtown Racine’s Monument Square – Racine Uncovered Removes and Censors Story Affecting Comments on Racine County Eye

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

From Justice 4 Angel:

There will be a second peaceful protest on Saturday, November 15 at Monument Square in Downtown Racine, starting at 11:00am.

Protest One

And new information is coming in from Racine County Corruption:

Police killing of pets creates civil unrest. Below are the Facts:

: Police pet killings undermines public trust
: Creates anxiety
: Increases police costs
: Inflicts emotional trauma
: And creates public hostility

Does the above list look like an officer’s job? The above information isn’t secret or unwritten. You have to know how to read to get this information and that is where one of Racine’s problems is. When it comes to reading and pets, Racine Police Chief Art Howell and his staff has failed to embrace written police science that would promote public trust, reduce department cost, and end the trauma the public endures every time a pet is killed by police.

Had Cheifless Howell read some of the writings of Bernard Melekian and embraced the science of community policing, we wouldn’t be writing about this today.

Instead Chiefless Howell is part of a national epidemic of police pet killings. In part because he has militarized his troops and is running his department as an occupying army. Howell obviously doesn’t understand community policing and believes a show of force is necessary to settle unrest.

The killing of Angel is a huge embarrassment for the police department; the incident has divided its troops and deflated the esprit de corps.
Internal affairs are now interviewing their own staff, sifting thru their reports, and preparing to do what police should have done the day of the incident.

Detectives must now backtrack and interview citizens, who witnessed the incident, collect evidence and write new reports.

Outburst between police and citizens are occurring on a daily basis. One of the noted outbursts by police was directed to a citizen who provided us with video recordings of the event. The police outburst chastised the citizen for not calling the police and telling them that he had this video.

Whatever happened to due diligence? The police failed to ask for any video from many of the witnesses and further neglected to take statements from all witnesses.

These are basic and fundamental tasks of law enforcement, but not in the Racine Police Department.

The police traumatized witnesses to the incident, failed to professionally do their job that day and are now chastising witnesses for failing to come forward.

The noted police outburst occurred after we had turned over video to the D.A.’s office. 

Can you imagine the exchange of words that has occurred between the police and D.A.’s office regarding the failures of Racine Police to perform basic tasks?

Can you imagine the position the D.A’s office is now in after they have filed charges base on incompetent acts, errors, omissions and misconduct by the Racine police department.

I’m glad I’m not the D.A.

The D.A.’s office now has to clean up the mess the Racine Police Department has given him.

As we reflect on the events leading to the death of Angel, the Racine police department obviously has basic training and judgment issues.

And that my friend is all that we can expect from Chiefless Howell.

Meanwhile, Beth David at Racine Uncovered, Blog and FACEBOOK,  has decided to COVER UP this blockbuster story by first linking to a Racine County Eye piece on the story, then de-linking, which caused all comments to disappear, then  deciding to choose  to censor the story by simply ignoring it.

Beth David of Racine Uncovered has chosen Cops acting badly and using excessive force over Dead Dogs and possible unlawful actions by her beloved Racine Police Department Employees.  Racine Uncovered? NAH! Racine Covered UP!  How can Beth David justify her beloved RPD shooting a retreating Australian Blue Heeler FOUR times in the back?

Group Protesting Police Actions In Dog Shooting Told To Move

A group protesting against the Racine Police Department after a dog was shot to death by a Racine Police officer was told Saturday they could not protest on the sidewalk because the space had been rented by the Downtown Racine Corporation for the Holiday Parade.

The group Justice 4 Angel was protesting near Monument Square at about 4 p.m. Saturday when officers from the Racine Police Department told the group they had to move because the Downtown Racine Corporation had rented the space for the Holiday Parade. The protesters were told they were only being asked to move because the Downtown Racine Corporation had paid for a permit for the parade and they had to keep moving.

Justice 4 Angel was started after a dog named Angel, which belonged to a man involved in a police standoff, was fatally shot on Nov. 2. The group has called for the officer to be fired and charged with animal cruelty, and for the department to receive more training.

Editor’s note: The video was taken by Mike Paczesny. The video does reflect his opinion. We also corrected the story to reflect that the group was asked to move.

 

 And from the comments – which were temporally removed from the Racine County Eye post when Beth David and Racine Uncovered de-linked and decided to censor the story about her beloved Racine Police Department:

RCE Comments

That SOMEONE was Beth David at Racine Uncovered, who choose Racine Police acting badly over a dead Australian Blue Heeler shot FOUR times in the back. DEAD. Once again, the video:

There is NO EXCUSE for the Racine Police Department’s use of EXCESSIVE FORCE!

So please join your concerned Family, Friends and Neighbors and demand Justice 4 Angel. Saturday November 15, 11:00 am, Downtown Racine at Monument Square.

Group Decries Use Of Excessive Force By The Racine Police Department

From The Journal Times, November 9, 2014:

Protesters: Response to standoff was too much

RACINE — Family and supporters of a man charged in connection with a Nov. 1 standoff staged a protest in Downtown Racine on Saturday decrying what they called a heavy-handed response by police to the incident.

About a dozen protesters waved signs and yelled at passing cars at about 3 p.m. outside the Public Safety Building, 730 Center St. They next marched down Seventh Street to Monument Square, where preparations were taking place for the Holiday Parade.

Participants in the protest contend police did not do due diligence in investigating the events that led up to the 3½-hour standoff at the home of Kurt Hanson, 55, in the 4000 block of Victory Avenue. Hanson’s 3½-year-old Australian cattle dog named Angel was killed by police in the incident. The police chief responded to some of their allegations by saying they were either false or appeared unfounded.

“The reason we came out to do this was the merciless shooting of my brother’s pet in the back four times and my brother being incarcerated when a man came to his door threatening him four times with a gun,” said Karen Wyatt, 51, of Racine. “The underlying motivation I have for coming out here and doing this is I think the Racine Police Department has become an organization that functions as a killing machine rather than justice for the people.”

Hanson’s neighbor, Kim Polk, and police said the standoff occurred after Hanson allegedly threatened Polk’s husband with a machete after he went to Hanson’s house to confront him about threatening Kim Polk over leaf blowing and the picking up of excrement left by Angel. Karen Wyatt contends Polk’s husband was armed when he confronted Hanson, an allegation police did not respond to on Saturday.

“If (Police Chief) Art Howell wants to use military tactics on the civilian public for an incident involving dog poop and allows it to escalate, then this is war,” said Harry Wait, 60, a self-proclaimed activist who participated in Saturday’s protest. “We have now printed our terms of surrender for Art Howell.”

Howell said Saturday in an email that he is compiling a report on the incident, which he will give to Mayor John Dickert upon completion. Howell said his department is still in the process of transcribing all the 911 tapes from the incident.

Wyatt said it was police who let the dog from the house and that video from a neighbor shows the dog was running in the yard playfully. Howell called Wyatt’s allegation “false and completely baseless.”

Group Protesting Police Actions In Dog Shooting Told To Leave

A group protesting against the Racine Police Department after a dog was shot to death by a Racine Police officer was told Saturday they could not protest because the space had been rented by the Downtown Racine Corporation for the Holiday Parade.

The group Justice 4was protesting near Monument Square at about 4 p.m. Saturday when officers from the Racine Police Department told the group they had to leave because the Downtown Racine Corporation had rented the space for the Holiday Parade. The protesters were told they were only being asked to leave because the Downtown Racine Corporation had paid for a permit for the parade.

Justice 4 Angel was started after a dog named Angel, which belonged to a man involved in a police standoff, was fatally shot on Nov. 2. The group has called for the officer to be fired and charged with animal cruelty, and for the department to receive more training.

While the Racine County Eye erroneously reports that the group was told to leave, the Group was POLITELY ASKED to leave – and the group stayed because there were on a public sidewalk and within their rights! For an almost full TWO hours! The group left when they were ready to leave.

Proud To Be a 1%’er – The American People Lose Again!

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

The results of the 2014 Wisconsin Governor’s race show Libertarian Robert Burke coming in at just 1%, while the Democrat – Socialists Mary Burke received 47% and the Republican – Fascist Scott Walker received 52%. The American People just lost again.

From the postcrescent:

Wisconsin Governor Election Results

Republican – Fascist Governor Scott Walker increased debt, cut top income tax rates, and increased spending,  causing the dichotomy of creating a growing debt service budget while receiving less income resulting in a growing budget deficit!

Scott Walker

From Econobrowser:

The Evaporation of the Wisconsin Budget Surplus

The FY2013-14 estimate (red square) incorporates the estimated $281 tax revenue shortfall. It does not incorporate the likely higher than budgeted Medicaid expenditures.[Peacock/WBP] I estimate the FY2014-15 shortfall using the $1.8 billion estimated shortfall for the biennium noted by WisPolitics.

While there is a:

Further Deterioration in Wisconsin Structural Budget Surplus

Wisconsin Department of Health Services indicates additional $760 million Medicaid expenditures for FY15-17. [1] This implies a further worsening of the 2015-17 biennium structural budget balance from -$1.8 billion (discussed here) to something like -$2.56 billion.

More from Econobrowser:

Wisconsin Employment: 108.6K below Trend Required to Hit Walker’s 250K Target

The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development released without fanfare (well, there is no press release I see on the DWD media website as of 3pm CDT today) the last figures to be available before the election. They indicate September private nonfarm employment 108.6 thousands below the trend consistent with the Governor’s target (recommitted to a mere year ago) of 250 thousands net new jobs.

sep14pix0

Not only is Wisconsin employment lagging the Governor’s commitment, it is also lagging the rest of the country. Figures 2 and 3 present private nonfarm payroll and nonfarm payroll employment, normalized to 2011M01, for the US and Wisconsin.

And while Wisconsin had no race for the U.S Senate in 2014 – others States did. The Republicans won the majority – but the American People lost again!

2014 Senate Races

From Charles Hugh Smith – Of Two Minds:

Wednesday, November 05, 2014

If You Really Think It Matters Which Party Controls the Senate, Answer These Questions

Please don’t claim anything changes if one party or the other is in the majority. Anyone clinging to that fantasy is delusional.

If you really think it matters which political party controls the U.S. Senate, please answer these questions. Don’t worry, they’re not that difficult:

1. Will U.S. foreign policy in the Mideast change from being an incoherent pastiche of endless war and Imperial meddling? Please answer with a straight face. We all know the answer is that it doesn’t matter who controls the Senate, Presidency or House of Representatives, nothing will change.

2. Will basic civil liberties be returned to the citizenry? You know, like the cops are no longer allowed to steal your cash when they stop you for a broken tail light and claim the cash was going to be used for a drug deal.

Or some limits on domestic spying by Central State agencies. You know, basic civil liberties as defined by the Bill of Rights and the U.S. constitution.

Don’t make me laugh–you know darned well that it doesn’t matter who controls the Senate, Presidency or House of Representatives, nothing will change.

3. Will the predatory, parasitic policies of the Federal Reserve that virtually everyone from the Wall Street Journal to what little remains of the authentic Left understands has greatly increased income and wealth inequality be reined in? Please don’t claim either party has any will or interest in limiting the Fed’s rapacious financialization. There is absolutely no evidence to support such a claim–it is pure wishful thinking.

4. Will the steaming pile of profiteering, corruption, waste, fraud and ineptitude that is Sickcare in the U.S. be truly reformed so its costs drop by 50% to match what every other developed democracy spends per person on universal healthcare? It doesn’t matter if ObamaCare is repealed or not; that monstrosity was simply another layer of bureaucratic waste on an already hopelessly dysfunctional system.

If you answer “yes,” please run a body scan on yourself to detect the biochips that were implanted while you voted Demopublican.

5. Will the influence of Big Money be well and truly banned from politics? If you answer yes, please pick up your tin-foil hat at the door.

6. Will the incentives in the Status Quo be reset to punish rapacious financialization and gaming the system and reward productive investment and labor? Before you answer, check out who’s buttering the Senators’ bread. Hint: Wall Street does not qualify as productive unless we’re talking about the production of life-draining parasites. Virtually none of the vast armies of skimmers and scammers, from those pursuing bogus disability claims to lobbyist leeches, will suffer any consequence.

Moral hazard is the Status Quo’s Prime Directive.

7. Will anything be done to dismantle the Neofeudal Debt-Serfdom known as student loans? You are delusional if you think either party has any interest in limiting the predation of an academic Upper Caste that came to do good and stayed to do well.

8. Will any prudent assessment be made of unaffordable weapons systems like the F-35 Lightning–$1.5 trillion and counting for aircraft that will soon be matched by drones that cost a fraction of the F-35’s $200 million a piece price tag? No way–parts of those insanely costly jets are made in dozens of states, so the pork is well-distributed. Never mind the plane is lemon, built to fight the wars of the past. It’s jobs, Baby–that’s all that counts. Never mind the $1.5 trillion–we can always borrow another couple trillion–the Fed promised us.

Do you really think the Senate controlled by either party will ask why the F-35’s price tag dropped to $120 million from $200 million? That’s easy–the revised estimate left out the engine and avionics. They’ll be added back in after the Senate approves open-ended funding.

If none of these key dynamics will change, you got nothing. Please don’t claim anything changes if one party or the other is in the majority. Anyone clinging to that fantasy is delusional.

If you doubt this, please take the above quiz again.

From MISH’S Global Economic Trend Analysis:

Prepare for War: Obama Asks Congress for ISIS War Authorization; Republican Hawks Have War Plan Prepared; Clinton-McCain?!

Prepare for war. Where? Syria, Iraq, Russia, Iran, China, anywhere and everywhere.

Warmonger in chief, senator John McCain wants troops in Syria, arms for Ukraine, an examination of “China’s continued encroachment in the south China Sea”, and an investigation into warming relations with Iran.

McCain is set to take over as head of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Expect the other party of war, the Democrats, to cooperate. On Wednesday, Obama Asked Congress to Authorize Islamic State War.

After insisting for months that he has all the authority he needs to launch the airstrikes already under way against the radical Sunni group, Obama reversed course and called for a new authorization for the use of military force a day after his party lost control of the Senate.

“The world needs to know we are united behind this effort and the men and women of our military deserve our clear and unified support,” Obama said yesterday at a White House news conference.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold hearings on the U.S. role in Iraq and Syria beginning next week, Senator Robert Menendez, the panel’s chairman, said in a statement.

The New Jersey Democrat has said a congressional authorization should be “appropriate in scope and duration to meet the threat and sustain the fight” without having an “indefinite duration.”

Obama has approved airstrikes against the extremists who have seized swaths of Iraq and Syria, and he’s deployed U.S. military teams to assess and advise the Iraqi military.

The administration has said it’s carrying out the offensive under the use-of-force authorization Congress approved after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, as well as under his constitutional powers as commander in chief.

Bill to Authorize Perpetual War

President Obama previously said that he does not need authorization to strike ISIS because of his “constitutional powers as commander in chief”.

Excuse me for asking but what powers are those? Since when does the president get to declare war?

I guess it’s time to formalize the transfer of power to declare war from Congress to the president.

Menendez wants a bill “appropriate in scope and duration to meet the threat and sustain the fight” without having an “indefinite duration.”

Translation: Menendez wants an indefinite duration, an open ended agenda, and no cost limits. McCain will surely see the bill gets revised that way.

No president would ever refuse to sign such a bill. And when it happens, the power to declare war will formally be handed over from Congress to the president. Not that it matters in the least. Presidents do what they want, when they want.

The Danger of the 2014 Electoral Blowout

The result of the brutal dismissal of D’s on Tuesday will lead to a dangerous outcome: the vast majority of Americans will believe that something has happened that will change the reality in America.  They will ramp-down.  Their sense of urgency will fade as they “…let the system work, and let the new R’s put the country back on track”.

Worse – anyone to the Right of the R’s just voted into office will be categorically deemed to be “outside the mainstream” – extremists, if you will.

Some of us know that nothing tangible will change as a result of the elections Tuesday.

But the sense of crisis will fade from many minds.

Be certain to insulate yourself from that dangerously false outlook, and the accompanying reinforcement of Normalcy Bias that is a certainty.

Robert Burke For Governor

From Wisconsin State Journal:

State politics is far too divisive under Gov. Scott Walker. Wisconsin lags on jobs and faces its third largest budget shortfall in two decades.

These are not problems without a solution. Our state can and must inject more cooperation and innovation into improving our economy and recapturing Wisconsin’s can-do spirit.

The State Journal editorial board endorses Burke for governor in Tuesday’s election.
 
Our editorial board met with both candidates for governor, and we’ve closely followed their public lives and careers. Our endorsement of Burke isn’t a prediction of who will win. It’s who we believe is best to lead Wisconsin forward.
