Phase IV of the New Now

indexstp

Well normally I wait for the same folks who claim the same things to spin about the cesspool of Racine and again get nothing done.

However I got no time for that, got things to do and places to go, you do too!

Best do any of us have the time to spend on the haters and their hate of everything most of all God Save you if you do not hate along side them every step of the way.

Can’t speak for you but I do not there is a lot of information to gather on the strange world this perhaps the most corrupt city in the Midwest if not the whole 50 States.

This information can be gathered and shared in a way that is ethical and more critical not filled with hate.

Best, far better ways to get these stories out then just waiting for eyeballs to come across a Web Page or a post to Facebook.

In fact the steps I have started to undertake will allow me access to a wide readership and resources from editing to legal aid in obtaining Open Records

Others have the same ability to do this but as I see it, far easier to hate then anything else

So I will be creating a new site to do this that.

As much as I still be writhing about the corruption is S.E. Wisconsin, I am also planing to write on efforts to fix this area of Wisconsin

I will also be cutting ties with the Equality Project of Racine, They do not speak for me nor I for them.

Who writes the Stories part II

The Open Records Email

I am requesting a copy (PDF is fine) of All E-mails send from The Racine City Administer/ The Mayor of Racine John Dickert  to or received from  Cara Spoto  cara.spoto@lee.net   and or Robert Golub rob.golub@lee.net  between 5-1-14 and 9-11-14

Please inform me of any cost this may incur
.

Thank You

As you can see I am very interested in finding out more on what if any oversite editorial control does the City of Racine have on the Racine Journal Times might in fact our City Administrator if not writing the copy himself suggest what stories to cover what not to and how they should be reported.

IMHO this is key for the Dickert Machine to operate,  to help the average older person trying to hang on in this dieing City that everything is really O.K. nothing to worry about we have no crime we do not have issues with Unemployment or with Race it’s all the nasty Bloggers fault ….

For if/when the older folks who still pay property taxes find out what others not on the Dickert Band Wagon think is true that Racine is best a City to see in your rear view mirror that even they would try to sell homes and move out.

(Side Bar A  Who is propping up property Values in the Downtown Area why do so many transactions lead to what looks like Shell Companies, Can I get them to prop up the values in West St Street area by buying me out? 250K come on write that check!)

So I can understand why the City would want to control what is printed in the Journal Times but are they?

Only time open records and research will tell.

FYI the 10 days the City has to respond ends end of next week, I will print what they have to say

Who writes the Stories….. My thoughts

 

 

Attacking the J-T for not being a real newspaper is like attacking this blog for my spelling and grammar, you can but why bother?  Nothing is going to change and you might as well do something far more useful like oh read a book, or take a walk.

Going back in time as I did when I talked to a Reporter from the Journal Times, our own Cara Spoto I recalled a story I was told time and again that before I moved here 1995 or so, before being printed the paper was sent to the Johnson’s for an O.K. that nothing they did not want made the paper, after all I was told we are or where a Company town, that is how most are run, no idea if its true or not but here is a good book on the subject of Company Towns:

Company Towns in the Americas: Landscape, Power, and Working-Class Communities

 

I find it very interesting how in Racine news does look like the City or say the Dickert Machine is trying to control the flow of information by such acts as:

Ending CAR 25 first by outsourcing to Sky Falls Media ending production of shows by myself and others not liked by our God Mayor John Dickert

KKK   Our Mayor Conducting a City Meeting?

To now after Sky Falls ended it’s involvement with CAR 25 the City is running it in such a fashion that well CAR 25 is dead other then City events (and few of them) taping of Public Comments at Cable Meetings nothing is being made how long before City Meets of any type will not be taped?

After all is not City Meetings best done in the Dark? Do we truly need to know who gets the Contacts for City Hall? Or who will make Bank on TIF 18? Of course not!

imagescc    New City Worker ready for interview by Mayor of Racine ?

 

Even WRJN might be under the control of The Dicket Machine then too who bothers to tune that in?

Now Ms Cara Spoto  did not believe the Story about J-Wax and I am not 100 % convinced myself  who knows?

I will say this:

I find in very interesting that our Newspaper has yet to IMHO cover the following

CAR 25 and where is the equipment from the Station?

Who produced the 4th Parade and how much did it cost? Was Marsh-Merath a Sponsor for how much?

What happened to the $$ Chase Henrix paid to the City of Racine to sponsor CAR 25?

The City Hall Bathroom Scandal

and others

The strange timing of stories over the RICO case, makes me think that the City of Racine is playing a huge part in what gets printed when by our fine Newspaper

 

 


Our Fearless Reporter Cara Spoto  might find learning about Project Censored useful I did

Project Censored specializes in covering the top stories which were subjected to media suppression either by being ignored or downplayed by the mainstream media each year.

Project Censored is a research team composed of more than 200 university faculty, students, and community experts who annually review between 700 and 1,000 news story submissions for coverage, content, reliability of sources, and national significance.

The 100 days and History

 

8841-square-140

The book above is a great read if you have not read it yet do so, tells an interesting story about the fall of Nazi Germany

what I found most interesting is how others around Hitler knew the war was lost others continued to believe that everything was going to be great and that the Germans were going to win somehow.

Sadly if you said anything that might suggest that the war was lost or had any ANY part of you that did not believe 100% in Hitler you could as was the case for many killed.

Today’s post started after talking to a Reporter outside of Racine and a Racine elected official who asked the same question “Why do I care about keeping track  of the Fall of Racine as it was put.

Easy the History needs to be know what happened who do I think it was and what did they do or not do to lead Racine to ruins.

and as History goes

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”
George Orwell

“Study the past if you would define the future.”
Confucius

 

“That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.”
Aldous Huxley, Collected Essays

“The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.”
Winston Churchill

See at some point in time someone may want to know why what was a great City (Racine) in 1910 by 1990 had major issues and by say 2025 like other cities had to declare Bankruptcy.

Why did folks start to leave Racine in large numbers,why did elected leaders still spend millions on a small area of Racine (Downtown) and leave much of the rest fall apart.

I know Documents from the ongoing RICO case will help but so will blogs like this one and others

In the mean time nothing to worry about in Racine the streets are Gold!

My pollicy on the JT

As you know the JT called me today for a statement on the Ethics hearing I said No Comment the Reporter then read what Ms Osterman’s lawyer said to try IMHO to get me to say something. I said No Comment and hung up the phone.

Why you might wonder easy:

As I see it the J-T is NOT even close to being a newspaper more a mouthpiece for the Mayor and his good old boys. Why give them anything to misquote hard to misquote No Comment.

Some may say they offered you a forum no they did not. If you think the J-T will not do what they may need to to make those of us look bad who stand up to fight the wrong doings of this administration, I have a nice bridge for you.

This blog is my Forum not the J-T

My policy is NOT to talk to the J-T Buy the paper nor shop at advertisers.

 

Is there no News in Racine?

 

 

Read the J-T lately?

If you have you maybe wondering what’s going on? where is the news in the J-T about

tonight’s Protest by the Natives over the the cities idea of the sell off of what may be a sacred Mound  to pals of the Mayor? (and I understand that someone is calling the buyer The New Tribe …. that;’s a tape I want to see if that person was that silly or not) 50+ will be coming WTMJ I understand is coming. A state wide Newspaper is coming but nothing I have seen in the J-T about this. Why?

I understand that the Racine Equality Project has filed an ethics violation over the voting on selling this area off (the Mound)  and that is not in the paper.

Heck I understand that Sleepy

ethic2

 

Above is dead and maybe “On Ice” as Mr. X put it with the Mayor’s pals and that was not in the paper that I saw. Is the Iceman going to be planted at the Mounds? Is this the plan?

Why might this be?

Might it be the idea that no news will be printed that might make Racine or the God of Racine Mayor John Dickert look bad?

imageslm   Is this the God of Racine in his true form?

 

JDnaziIs this The God ay his desk?

Wow!

Many have said to include Mr.X that CAR 25 was gutted to create the John Dickert Propaganda Network.

Dr. Joe might fit right in Racine City Hall

imagesJG   Dr. Joe

 

Sad to say that Mayor John Dickert might be keeping the local press from reporting the real news but I think not much he can do to stop WTMJ or 58 from doing live TV from Racine nor can he stop outside Newspapers from covering the real news and maybe looking for more in Racine WI

 

Flash clue

 

 

And he is pissed as hell

 

Note this Blog post will go in front of 5K  not including Shares or retweets Mayor John Dickert cant stop the new media

This IS the scandal of Racine

Interesting day on The Racine Journal Times 9/8/2012

A story on City  of Racine retirements spawned Blog postings on the non payment of Property taxes. Looks like that the City of Racine may have issues with folks paying their property taxes .

You can read the posts here

http://www.journaltimes.com/news/local/city-retirements-on-the-rise—factors-include-age/article_af55e3bc-f950-11e1-8d3f-0019bb2963f4.html?comment_form=true#comments

One of the issues brought up is if the City of Racine property tax web site is up to date or not, if not why not?  Would this misinformation hurt someone looking say for a loan or a credit report?  if this is the case would having this information be wrong cause the City to be sued? We are good at being sued. On further review is that the web pages show that they are not the best to find information biggest issue is to find out about Back taxes owned.

How can we know if and how much is owed in back taxes

More critically IMHO what is being done to collect?  I like to know the total amount owed in back taxes I am sure that in any large city there are some when this goes from a few $$ to say 10’s of Millions I can not help but believe this becomes an issue.

An issue I want answers to.  I also like to know if there are rules in place to say stop someone massively behind in taxes to say sit on City/County boards, receive City/County Contracts  until payment is made or arrangements made.

When T.I.F.’s are created are back taxes repaid from this?

Myself I think a list should posted on line of folks who owe say over $5,000 in Taxes. As well these folks should not sit on boards nor receive  Government contracts, until payment is made or arrangements made.

However this is Racine, I think it will be hard to find out how bad the issue is. My guess is that should the news get out it would effect the City/County credit rating.

This opens the door to the issue of how much debit the City owes and how much this costs us to service.  To think our Mayor still wants to spend spend spend by selling Bonds. Wow

I do agree with one of the posters  from the JT, this is the scandal of Racine
