Facts And Truth Re: Death of West Easton Councilman Charles Stoudt

The Disgraceful Mayor Gross
Although I'd be better off paying more attention to my packed briefing / docketing statement schedule that includes trial court , Superior Court  and Commonwealth Court, all due within the next 2 weeks, I've decided to play some hooky from that gruesome task, and write what I have learned as the result of Jim Deegan's Op-Ed in the Express Times which appeared in today's paper. In a perpetual crusade to keep public records from reaching the public,  West Easton has been papering me with lawsuit after lawsuit after lawsuit for the last 3 years, and have failed to get even one win (fingers crossed, one case still pending) After being assaulted (figuratively) and overwhelmed  with persistent OOR petitions (7 so far) for reversals, Briefs (lost count) , Hearings (4?) , Arguments (53) , Appeals (3) , and Appellate schedules (3), rules (dont ask), and at least 100 lbs of paper  since 2010,  I may just nominate myself for an honorary law degree from a local law school. (humor) Some credit must be given to the OOR for coddling me by Brief of Amicus Curae ( which they rarely do) , in 2 dockets , which helped solidify their decision, and our win, in trial court and Appellate Court. West Easton has a crazy and rabid desire to spend all the tax money on failed lawsuits, in their multiple attempts to conceal and restrain the  public from receiving public records .

Lets go back to the beginning. Charles Stoudt was put on the ballot as a Democrat for West Easton Borough Council in Sept. 2011. He did not have a run in the primary. This was because Dan Depaul became a dual sided write in, in April of 2011, and held a November ballot position for both the Republican and Democratic ticket. This is unusual, but possible if you get write in votes, as opposed to the traditional ballot petition which needs 10 party signatures for the primary election in May.  (either R of D, but not both).

So, the contenders were supposed to be Mezzacappa (R) Molleur (D) Gross, Kelly (D) Depaul (R, D) .
That means there were 4 people running for 3 seats. But then DePaul dropped in August, leaving two more vacancies for November 2011. One R and One D could be appointed by their respective County committee people, which required only a notarized nomination, with a majority vote of the Executive Commitee.

Are you still with me?

OK. So , the Dems appointed West Easton resident Nancy Kutz, and the GOP appointed West Easton resident Laurie Denegar. So that was that, right? NOPE.

Malfeasance and interferance from the Gross family fifiedom , and lunatic hate blogger from Nazareth, PA caused Kutz to be thrown off the ticket , and a new Dem would be appointed. They appointed Charlie Stoudt, and then Stoudt , Molleur and Gross won the election in Novemeber 2011, with Mezzacappa in 4th and Denegar in 5th.

Charlie took office in January of 2012, and served on Council until his death in March of 2014. He died in his home. Reliable sources have said that Charlie was no Gross family puppet, and was making inquires about Borough business, regularly. I was also told, that spolier Kelly Gross became perturbed at his lack of puppetry skills, and retaliated by failing to provide him with council packets, and phone calls.

One would think (after his death)  that the Mayor and Daughter (Kelly Gross, Borough Council President) would have had enough class to notify council members of his death. Mayor Gross was allegedly one of the first persons notified after Charlie died.

Not only was that skipped, but the Council President who attended his funeral, failed to notify ANYONE that he passed away. But the disgrace doesn't stop there.

In a sick and twisted convoluted charade, she actually dressed his council seat with a name plate and council packet for three consecutive meetings, after he had died. See the comment section in the ET Op-Ed above for details.

This leaves me with no other conclusion that she deliberately and disgracefully failed to announce his death, so she would have ample time to find another hand picked  puppet to fill his vacant seat, without making the position public.

It is my opinion that her behavior, while not criminal, is certainly atrocious, unscrupulous, and beyond argument, UNTRUSTWORTHY.

Folks, please note, this is the same Borough Council President who narrowly escaped a felony charge for her involvement in the theft of confidential firearm documents from the Northampton County Sheriff's Office. Sadly, her co-conspirator was the only person who told the truth, and was the only one prosecuted. 3 others lost their jobs, over the malfeasance of Kelly Gross.

We need to bounce this woman from her role as Council President . She is a disgrace and a cancer to the taxpayers of this town, and this county. Act now . Attend Coucnil meetings on the 2nd Monday of each month. Your voice counts.

Sheriff David Clark Wins Election Despite Bloomberg 's Millions To Oust Him

Outspent by millions of Bloomberg  dollars in the Tuesday election for Milwaukee County Sheriff, David Clark shows voters that money does not buy a vote.

Pro gun Sheriff Clark was criticized by the Bloomberg Anti-2a group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, only because Clark took out a radio ad encouraging all citizens to purchase, keep and bear arms for their own self protection. This ad infuriated Democrats, of which Clark is one also.

According to this news article, he is unopposed for November, and has declared victory over Bloomberg and his gang of Anti 2a Dems.

"Sounds like a great story worthy of national attention — maybe even a Hollywood-movie treatment. But there are reasons you likely haven’t heard about it. The African-American incumbent who won this week is Milwaukee County sheriff David Clarke, a conservative who has championed the Second Amendment and urged Wisconsin residents in unsafe neighborhoods to “become acquainted with firearms.” The billionaire who saw his money go up in smoke was former New York City mayor and liberal darling Michael Bloomberg, who helped found Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Clarke won both the city of Milwaukee, which is heavily minority, and the county precincts, which are dominated by whites. His victory over a union-backed candidate is another inconvenient fact for liberals."

Calling All First Amendment Purists : Iraq War Vet Tossed out of Six Flags over T-Shirt

If anyone is interested in reading about a real and true infringement on First Amendment rights, then keep reading this article.

This man was tossed out of Six Flags in NJ over his military T-Shirt

An Iraq war veteran who is classified as disabled from hearing loss and post traumatic stress disorder was denied admission into the park last weekend because of the T-Shirt he wore. The shirt says "Keep Calm and Return Fire."    Alejandro’s family gave him several shirts they had purchased from the The Reconnaissance Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps to support Recon Marines and their families, as a Father’s Day gift for him. The incident is described from the newspaper article below:

But Alejandro said this changed on Saturday when the black shirt he was wearing - with a red, white and blue machine gun and the words "Keep Calm and Return Fire" on the front and the logo and website for The Reconnaissance Foundation on the back - caught the attention of a security guard at the front gate.

“I was walking in through the gate with my wife and kids, who were in front of me, when a security guard grabbed me and said: ‘I can’t let you into the park with that shirt on. That shirt’s offensive,’” Alejandro said on Tuesday. 

“I said that it’s not offensive, it’s a military shirt. I told him that I am an Iraq veteran… I served in the war. But he said: ‘I don’t care, you have to take that off… or you need to buy another shirt to put over it.’”

Alejandro said that when he refused to take the shirt off or buy a new shirt to cover it, the security guard told him to wait there while he checked with their supervisor.

“I saw him talk to two women in white shirts, who looked at me and then shook their heads. And then the man grabbed my arm and asked me to leave,” he said. “I told them that’s it’s not offensive, that it’s a military shirt and that it means something. 

But they said: ‘I don’t care, get out of the park."

Alejandro said he complied with the request, but only after announcing to hundreds of other people who were entering the park that he was a veteran and what was happening to him.

"My wife and my son were crying, because they didn't understand why this was happening," he said. "I just told my son to remember this day. To remember how they treat veterans."

Kristin B. Siebeneicher, a spokeswoman for Six Flags Great Adventure, said via email on Thursday that the incident was "under review."

"Our goal is to maintain a fun, safe and family-friendly environment. Our dress code does not permit clothing with vulgar, offensive or violent language or images," she wrote. "If a guest is wearing such attire, we ask them to remove and replace it with another item of clothing; and if they do not have one, they are able to purchase a replacement item at a gift shop."

Siebeneicher added that Six Flags is extremely proud of its longstanding relationship with the U.S. military.

"We work closely with them throughout the season to offer special events that honor our service men and women and their families, including a recent July 4th tribute, and an upcoming 'Salute the Troops' event over the Labor Day weekend," she said. "In addition, active members of the Army, Navy and Air Force helped open our new thrill ride this summer."

Jason Brown Accused of Dismembering 5 Dogs At Nevada Motel

Taken from the Huffington Post:

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A 24-year-old man is accused of killing and dismembering several dogs, leaving a gruesome scene in a Nevada motel room.
The dogs included two Chihuahuas that a woman says she gave to Jason Brown because she couldn't care for them and wanted to find them a good home, according to police.
Brown was arrested July 9 after a maid told authorities she found a decapitated dog in a room he was renting at the Super 8 in a busy suburban area across from a mall in south Reno.
Officers who responded found four dog heads in a small refrigerator in the room, detectives said in a probable cause filing. They also found other dog parts, two bloody kitchen knives and the scissors of a Swiss Army knife.
Washoe County sheriff's deputies said other items recovered from the room included two dog collars with rabies tags registered to Nancy Frank, the woman who reported giving Brown the Chihuahuas. Authorities also found a dog dish, blankets and tennis balls "all believed to have been items" that the Sun Valley woman gave Brown, the report said.
Brown, a former Reno High School student, was scheduled to appear at a Reno Justice Court hearing Wednesday on six felony counts of torturing or maiming and killing an animal and two counts of possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.
His lawyer, John Oakes, told the Reno Gazette-Journal last month that Brown has "mental health issues" and might need a psychiatric evaluation before he goes to trial.
Prosecutors say Brown killed five dogs at the Super 8 and a sixth at another location. He was being held at the county jail on a $70,000 cash bond.
The criminal complaint and supporting documents provide a chilling account of the investigation into the killings prosecutors say spanned four days in early July.
On July 4, a man first sent an email to the Washoe County sheriff's dispatch saying a woman informed him she saw dog body parts in a sport utility vehicle belonging to Brown.
The tipster, Al Von Wellscheim, also alleged Brown was killing unwanted dogs that he obtained through Craigslist, Washoe County sheriff's Detective Joe Bowen wrote.
Detectives confirmed Brown had registered the SUV that was parked outside the motel where he was staying in a room on the first floor. They said during his interrogation on the evening of July 9 that Brown acknowledged he bought a dog from Frank in Sun Valley and that he was living alone in the motel.
Brown initially stated he entered the room July 7 to find his gray dog dead in the bathroom, the sheriff's report said. He said the dog looked like it had been cut up, and he suspected a girl named "Debbie" did it. He later changed his story, the report said.

Savage Attack on Pit Bull in Oregon, Suspect Arrested

Another miserable animal abusing sadist has been removed from the street.

A Linn County man was arrested Wednesday for alleged animal abuse after authorities learned that a pit bull mix had to be put down due to severe injuries.

Linn County Sheriff's Office received a complaint from a person who had seen a Facebook post detailing how a dog had to be put down after it was thrown to the ground.

Deputies visited the dog's owner, Cameron Clark, who told authorities that his brother hurt the dog. Clark said his brother picked up the dog and slammed it into the ground, causing the back and hips to break. Cameron told deputies that the dog was so severely injured he felt it was best to put it down.

Deputies also spoke to Clark's brother, Brandon, who lived at the same home.

 Brandon Clark admitted to throwing the dog on the ground, the Sheriff's Office said. He was arrested and taken to Linn County Jail on suspicion of first-degree animal abuse.

NRA Urges Support For Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clark

Fight Bloomberg, support Sheriff David Clarke. Excerpt is here:

WASHINGTON –  National political donors with deep pockets are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a local Wisconsin sheriff’s race that pits gun control groups against the National Rifle Association.

On Tuesday, voters in Milwaukee County, Wis. will decide whether they’ll give controversial Sheriff David Clarke Jr. - a staunch supporter of Second Amendment rights known for his outspoken ads -- another term in office or side with his opponent, police lieutenant Chris Moews.

Clarke made headlines last year after he spent money on a radio ad that urged citizens to enroll in firearms classes following budget cuts. He told residents in the 30-second commercial to “point that barrel center mass and pull the trigger” because “911 is not our best option.”
He also said that personal safety is no longer a spectator sport and told citizens, "I need you in the game."

The primary race is a rematch of the one four years ago in which Clarke beat Moews by six points.
Both candidates are running as Democrats. The winner moves on to the November general election. However, since no Republicans are in that contest, Tuesday’s winner will most likely become the next county sheriff.

This time, Moews is armed with money aimed at taking down the Clarke camp.
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg - who through his political group has publicly committed to spending $50 million on gun-control politics in 2014 – has paid $150,000 to air a series of television ads targeting Clarke’s conservative pro-gun policies.

The money from Bloomberg’s Independence USA super PAC is more than what Clarke and Moews have spent on their entire campaigns combined.

Bloomberg spokesman Howard Wolfson told the Wall Street Journal on Monday that he decided to get involved in the sheriff’s race because it allowed him to shape policy on a local level.

“The issue of guns is one that (Bloomberg) cares an awful lot about and there’s a very clear contrast on that issue in this race,” Wolfson told the newspaper.

But Bloomberg isn’t the only person pumping cash into the primary.

The Greater Wisconsin Committee spent $400,000 on its own anti-Clarke ads.
Clarke, who is running as a Democrat but regularly aligns himself with conservative Republicans, spoke at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in April. The NRA, who calls Clarke a “rising national star,” has come to Clarke’s defense, soliciting donations from its members on his behalf and buying online ads for his re-election bid.

“Make no mistake: Sheriff Clarke is fighting the reelection battle of his life right now because he dared to stand on principle by standing up for you, me and the NRA,” Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, said.

“Am I big on a person’ right to be able to defend themselves? Yes. You know why? Because it’s a natural right,” Clarke recently told Wisconsin News Radio 620 WTMJ.
His opponent, Moews, has a different take.

“If I have the opportunity to defend myself and my family I will do so to the best of my abilities but I’m certainly also going to call 911 if I have the ability because I need the cavalry to come and help me,” Moews told WTMJ at the same political event.
