Are you ready Racine for what is coming?

shut-up-do-as-your-told-bend-over-and-take-it-like-a-man

Are you ready for what is coming? You know you want it after all you been fucked by :

Point Blue

Team Porters

Machinery Row ( Wait til you hear the new idea AND who will pay the bills)

From the Journal Times 8/21/16

“…

The Racine County Board on Tuesday will hear the results of a recent study centered on the possibility of constructing an arena in Racine.

Moreover, the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting mentions the possibility of a hotel in connection to the arena. On Friday, Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave declined to provide details about the hotel in advance of the meeting.  …”

As much as Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave declined to provide details (and why should he he only works for us but looks like he is controlled by Mayor John Dickert)

I will speculate:

    1. The location is Downtown Racine thinking the old WE Energy site on Lake St
    2. The hotel a long time goal of Mayor John Dickert and will include a convention center thinking this be the filled in 5th St Marina that the County can not sell nor has found any interest in. What better way to dispose of a White Elephant then sell it to the tax payers?
    3. The Sports arena will include an indoor Ice rink something else a long time goal of the Downtown Racine crowd wants badly maybe something called for in the Root Works plan
    4. The Ice rink we will be told would be used by An NHL farm team we will be told would be moved or started in Racine
    5. That the convention center of course would be ran by the same company Venu Works that only loss 300K last year and has trouble filling the Festival Hall in Racine
    6. the cost (about say 50 Million) would be split between The City of Racine County of Racine and forced loans I mean donations from the Racine Business community
    7. That local Sport player (s) from Racine we will be told will buy naming rights, to honor another local sports hero.

    That there are a few 100K in grants to kick the project off (and pay the developer?)

Of course the report will say  there is a HUGE need for a Sports Complex and Hotel/Convention center. We will be told that many from Chicago would come to Racine to see the Sports team Ice Skate then spend $$ in Downtown Racine, after all just go downtown and see all the cars from IL, and the line of cars coming to Racine on Hwy 11 to visit this Hell hole I mean great city.

Now how will Machinery Row impact this when new details on that project comes out?

Overall just know your not taxed enough and need to pay more to allow the pals of John Dickert to make money off you now be good and bend over because its coming

 

 

Save the Racine Public Library From Mayor John Dickert! My view

malcolmx1_1280x7202

 

Full discloser I worded for the Racine  Library sometime ago

Libraries are critical what others have said

I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it’s better than college. People should educate themselves – you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had read every book in the library and I’d written a thousand stories.

Best there is no end of what might be learned from the act of going to the Library.
When I was a child in Baraboo WI my Mom and Dad made a point of making sure did I not learn how to read they read to me at a young age and my Dad taught me how to read when I was about 4 .
Early on, I discovered  all the cool books I could get from the Baraboo Library.
Oh the world of Books the information!
After the Army I discovered  the U.W. Madison Library system with more information then I could think of ….
Even in my early days recovering from Alcoholism the  Library was a place of refuge.
Today I go to the Racine Library a few times each month.
Yes things have changed far more then just books  can be found there from programing to engage youth, DVD’s, and public Computers can be found there they can and are being used by many from Facebook to others using You Tube to discover this big world we live in.
Per $$ spent I  think there is no better investment that any City can make then the public Library.
So then why the hate from Mayor Dickert with the Cut backs?
KKK Mayor Dickert at a City meeting on Downtown Racine?
Is it to save $$ I cant think that if we can spend millions on Rootworks a million on City Hall (and his pal making Bank with the Bathrooms) could not cuts come from that? Or is there an another plan?
Why Yes Young Jedi there just might be.
I am thinking that our Real Estate maybe looking to find room for a Hotel/Convention Center where the Racine Public  Library/YMCA stand now.
Lets take a look at a map
2014-10-18_10-06-22_577
Why look in the upper left hand corner we have the YMCA!
What would they ever do with that Empty Building? Why of course sell in to the City or a pal of our Mayor to start this hotel/center
Yet IMHO they need more room the Library would provide this added room.
and then we have this
From the Racine Journal Times
Urban Pioneer – October 22, 2014 11:55 amIt is time for the Library to address the reality of the 21st century. Close and sell the land on Lake Michigan shoreline..It makes ZERO sense to maintain a tax dollars consuming property on land that could easily b rebuilt as a tax PRODUCING property if it was developed by the private sector. Second sell the land on Spring and Neumann Rd. Then take the combined monies and the Library’s reserve fund (Which I believe is around 10 million dollars. and build a new library on the property of the WesTowne theater. Ohio and Washington Ave. Its centrally located, and easy access for most of Racines low income students and families, and everyone else as well. Also easy access for Caledonia and Mt Pleasant users. Plenty of room for free parking. Close to shopping, groceries, the Post Office etc. This is a win-win for the entire community. Both the users and the non-users of the library system. Finally we can start collecting taxes from a high rise hotel or Condo development on the current library property and the YMCA on the lakefront land.
Looks to me that this poster does not understand that:
1) There is no real Bus system for anyone to use anyone and Minority Kids can get to this (Current) location vs most others, if ANYONE should have access to  a library its the minorities kids
2) Unless/until the Downtown becomes a gated community Minorities will coming to Downtown Racine.
3) Perhaps the library users do not shop downtown is what the heck is there to youth to shop at?  Bars and more Bars. Should we allow 12 year old kids to start drinking?
IMHO I see this attack on our  Racine  library as nothing more then the first step to building a Hotel/Center were once again Mayor John Dickert will use City $$ to have his pals make bank. That the story in the J-T and the post suggesting a move was just testing the waters for a push my our Mayor to get our beloved library to move
Thinking we need a good library far more then RootWorks or more City Contracts to our Mayor’s pals
 Please call the Mayor’s Office and your Alderman and tell them to fully fund the library.
In fact the Inter Governmental fund was to be used for that very thing NOT BS like Team Porter’s and what happened to that idea?

Flash News!!! Flash News!!! Flash News!!

received the go ahead to print the map

2014-10-18_10-06-22_577

Questions to ask

1) Is just now only Mayor Dickert’s dream, as even more have told me that Machinery Row is dead that to make anything happen the City/County would have to do the development, do you think the City of Racine has the $$$ to do so?

2)   Is the story in the Racine Journal Times

No suburban library for now

http://journaltimes.com/news/local/no-suburban-library-for-now/article_cb48a0a1-19f9-5ec9-9d5d-9b16646acb8d.html on the City library a plant to start the drum roll, to force this great resource, away from Downtown to keep away minorities from the very White downtown?

3) Might Mayor John Dickert  understand the City Hall is awash with good folk willing to risk his wrath in sending out information to the grassroots press, in order to insure that the public has the information that the Mayor not want the public to know ?

4) Does Mayor John Dickert understad that even in his Police State he can not stop the press.

Note to the Mayor EVER story I run here the link goes in front of 13,000+ eyes if only 1% look at the story that be 1300. not bad.

News Flash Machinery Row Issues coming to a head!

IMG_1049

 

This Reporter has received information about Machinery Row development in Racine WI, far more then I ever thought, sources that wish to remain off the record tell me that Machinery Row in Racine  is dead in the water.

As they have told me deals that would have obtained the properties required to get Machinery Row started have not of this morning have closed, that as they claim owners of property have been told the deals they (property owners) thought they had have been withdrawn.

If so this would mean that Machinery Row is very much dead, that for anything to happen The City of Racine/County of Racine would have to come up with the funds to buy properties or seize said properties for say back taxes or perhaps eminent domain law.

With Racine is so much debit, how would the City Leadership try to justify the bond issue required to do so?

With this information come to me a map that shows a draft of the layout of Machinery Row to include a named business in the location.

Should this map be legit and from the information on the map, my guess it I do have a copy of a “official” map. We have a question.

This being will the long term dream of Mayor John Dickert of a New hotel on Lake Michigan  be coming to pass?  What deals will have to take place first?

 

Watch out for drones!

 

But Wait …..

Between Rain storms in the last few days, I have been driving around with others the City of Racine.

We had noticed something and wanted to look into the idea more

The City of Racine has indeed is becoming more and more Hispanic. Sure has in my area what started out  being mostly Black has now become mostly Hispanic.

Let me say that again in an area that in the year 2000 was mostly African American is now 2014 mostly Hispanic! (and more are coming)

More and more businesses opening or starting underground (Day Care Cars being fixed in small garages)

Hard working right wing Catholic Hispanic. Interesting to say the least why?

Well one they as they are in need of more services from the City from basic health care to ESL classes in the Public Schools to Gateway

Services they are not getting the poorest some not having Cars need basic Bus service a Bus Service that Racine IMHO no longer has to offer. or cares to.

From talking to others I am told that the Hispanic Businesses on lower Douglas are harassed by the White owned business on upper Douglass.

Talking to the Hispanic Business owners I get blank looks when I ask them if they ever have met their Alderman

 

200_Jim_12Feb08   Hero of the Hispanic Community of Racine?

 

Now what do you think the City needs more ESL so good folks can get jobs or Machinery Row that will IMHO only enrich a few in the Downtown area a place I hear all the time dislikes ANY Hispanics in unless its to clean or landscape.

A strong Health Department ready and able to help our growing Hispanic Community or  looking the other way when Alderman have questions about who is making $$ from State Grants?

Of course our Leadership Discount our Hispanic Population since they see them as well worker slaves only good for slave type jobs.

Sadly for the Good Old Boys in Racine of both Parties after living together knowing them as I do they will be the driving force economically as more of the 2nd Generation grows up and should they stay in a City (Racine) that they speak of as a pit of filth, may sooner then the White Good Old Boys find themselves well not in charge

 

Now in my time in Racine I have served as Co Vice President of the Tri-County Hispanic Chamber of Commence/Hispanic Chamber of Racine

Severed on Former Senator Russ Feingold Hispanic Affairs Group

Active in Hispanic circles at the grassroots

and have contacts all over Mexico to Argentina  in fact created for CAR 25 Spanish Programing.

Is John Dickert King Zedekiah? My Thoughts NSFW

KD

We will see I guess.

Mind you this will be an interesting post, for unless it is way over the top or information others are not talking about I going to keep my posting to my Blog on the Root River and what I see as the huge scam called RootWorks, Boy is it!

This in many way last post here  in so I thought I should say why.

Easy I got Called last night to  do something far better that being Urban Agriculture and that call came from God.  Do not know about you but when God calls I pay attention. Something perhaps Our Mayor may wish to do so should his pals. I however digress

Far better writers then I like Racine Exposed do a great job and give in detail what is going on in the City. I just rant not that there is anything wrong in that, to rant about the wrongs I see going on in this Pit of Doom but I can have a greater better impact by working in Urban Ag. I will let others call out Mayor Dickert on what I will say IMHO are crimes on the folk of Racine.

By the way God has heard the cries of the  poor, the Homeless, the Widows, God, Himself has seen the Looting the Pillaging and what I see as the Raping of The City for Mayor Dickert’s Benefit and that of his pals.

Again IMHO I think God is pissed off and will be doing something about this and right soon. I am not Judging guilt in God’s eyes I trust God to be with us to guard us and protect us even if it means and it might  that the best way to do that (Protect us) is have us get the Hell out of Racine.

It might mean that elected officials may have to say no more and resign vs go along with the program perhaps call the Lawyers suing the Mayor under Rico and start saying what they know, I can not tell you that is between them and God.

I can say this I strongly feel that very soon God will be paying a visit to Racine and will crumble to dust the haughty, them who take from the Homeless, the Poor, them who have little so the Good Old Boys can have more.

I myself Forgive Mayor Dickert for any harm he has done me and hope Our Mayor changes his ways before it is too late

I also feel that Rootworks will not happen and it will end most spectacularly drawing into it many who have joined the Mayor in his games and plundering.

To be clear I will be writing on the Root River and Rootworks on the Root River Blog and what freelance gigs I can find just not very much here.

Thanks God Bless and keep you.

My thanks to Ms ?

A few days ago, I received a call wanting to know if I wanted some old newspaper clippings a bunch of old E-Mails  gathered over the years just to go over and when I was done do what I will with them.

Ms. ? Dropped them and until the last few day was not able to go over them much, oh my Living God!

Do I have the gold mine!

Among other gems I have:

Copies of the 6th st Plan

The outline of the Artist relocation plan for Uptown with Newspaper accounts from other Cities we know how that went (but this time it will be different right?) assoted Emails from Ms. ? and elected City Leaders of the past and Campaign Lit from Mayor John Dictert’s run for State Assembly that alone is huge, as in what he wanted to do then to what he has done or would like to do as Mayor of Racine, funny I saw nothing about his suing the City or being part of a RICO Suit in the lit.    A lot about backing RUSD and more spending being needed.

Done a great job with the spending part

Interesting reading an old newspaper story about Mr. K. Fair pointing out issues with how the City was doing the “Improvements” Downtown and the group that seams to be forming over issues around Rootworks.

I love how the Head of the DRC in the story telling us that as I read it has no right to complain

So nice having this information to go over and how this answers some questions and helps guide me to others

 

Is Konrad Meyer walking the banks of the Root River? Part one

Long Live Spatial planning!!  LONG LIVE GENTRIFICATION!!

The State knows best! Mayor John Dickert understands your needs! LONG LIVE A WHITE PURE RACINE!!

Think that is over the top? Is it?

Lets set the back ground

We start with the idea that the Nazis may be the first crazy Greens.

Frank Furedi:

“What we today call ‘environmentalism’ is … based on a fear of change. It’s based upon a fear of the outcome of human action. And therefore it’s not surprising that when you look at the more xenophobic right-wing movements in Europe in the 19th century, including German fascism, it quite often had a very strong environmentalist dynamic to it. The most notorious environmentalists in history were the German Nazis. The Nazis ordered soldiers to plant more trees. They were the first Europeans to establish nature reserves and order the protection of hedgerows and other wildlife habitats. And they were horrified at the idea of hydroelectric dams on the Rhine. Adolf Hitler and other leading Nazis were vegetarian and they passed numerous laws on animal rights.”

extracted the above passage from Ron Arnold’s Committee in Defense of Free Enterprise web-page, where the transcript is featured as a “guest editorial.”

And more

The core of Nazi rural socialism was the idea that land-use must be planned. Gottfried Feder was a leading Nazi charged with the duty of formulating such policy. He made a speech in Berlin in 1934 in which he stated that the right to build homes or factories or to use land according to the personal interests of owners was to be abolished. The government instead would dictate how land was to be used and what would be constructed on it. Feder next began to build up elaborate administrative machinery to carry out his plans.

Now look at Racine

We have plans and groups to carry out the plans:

Downtown Racine Corporation for the Downtown area and I understand may have something to do  or will have For the Douglass Corridor and the Uptown Project (yet to be written but IMHO already written)

Root River Council members/former leadership have roles in RootWorks the Plan for the Root River.

We have a city who’s own Mayor tells is has no money and has asked Nonprofits to donate money to help cover city expenses as Mayor Dickert goes to Mexico! Our Mayor will cut costs as in take down Street Lights!

The Uptown plan currently being worked on by the same consultants that gave us Rootworks, well is interesting for as I understand what I was told at the first meeting is big on gentrification see IMHO this is nothing more then a way to drive the groups who make up most of the Uptown area poor Blacks and Hispanics. Again from    Gottfried Feder from his 25 points

4. None but members of the nation may be citizens of the State. None but those of German blood, whatever their creed, may be members of the nation. No Jew, therefore, may be a member of the nation.  Note in the City of Racine case change Jew to Black

That way when the Blacks are gone the right kind of folks can move to Racine and enjoy the fruits of Spatial Planing. Plans created and carried out by the crony capitalist friends of Mayor John Dickert.

Speaking of Crony Capitalism “Government control without direct ownership had the advantage that when the economy did well, the state could take credit. When the economy did poorly, private parties could be blamed. Prior to the debacle of World War II, many of Mussolini’s policies were admired by democrats such as economist John Maynard Keynes and President Franklin Roosevelt.”

Who does that sound like?  Why Mayor John Dickert! All the hype he ran out for the Porter’s Project! The hype on Delta Hawk now we know that Porter’s is dead but we have yet to hear anything about Delta Hawk. Why is that?

When our Mayor talks about why Racine is  falling apart he blames others mostly Gov Walker fault that being he can not raise taxes. I wonder how much my property  taxes would be if he could?

Maybe we list the cronies…

Gentrification the new racism comes to Racine! Part 2

KKK

 

So now that our fearless leader (shown above) has the tools needed to run Ramshod in the Uptown:

He controls The Aldermen

Controls the local Old School Media

Belle City TV is ran by his pals

The County Goverment is busy raping the tax payers over Reef Point Marina to worry about the Mayor  and then the County and City said they work together on the Uptown pillaging

looks to me they do like each other

1233997_10202093708612856_974441806_n

Party on!

and the vast majority of residents of the Uptown being Minorities and poor who will defend them? Other then God no one

So what to expect from my crystal ball

imagescb

The Uptown plan that IMHO has already been done will sail to get made law of the city, as this happens members of the Bid board or fronts for them will open business to take advantage of this.

Expect to see a restoration company that will focus on historical rehabbing of old buildings some of the first jobs will be for buildings that just happen to be a focus of the Uptown Plan.

The Bank will come under close watch by the City of Racine as a first step to change ownership from the current owner to someone to in line with Mayor John Dickert

Gateway will open some type of Center in the Uptown,  as a sop   to Alderman Shields part of it will be used for helping Black kids to stay in School since IMHO the Good old boys do not want Blacks who can read/write do not expect much with this.

Since Gateway has an Open Check Book expect them to spend the money to get something going and then we see the good old boys say how great the Uptown Plan is doing in the Media the Mayor controls! Are you not happy!

The idea is to create a way to raise property values (Hear about the new City Assessor?) Not only to for more taxes BUT to sell Bonds! See Dickert needs more Bond sales to build his toy called Rootworks oh who came up with that idea?!  But with the falling property values in Racine  The city may not be able to sell more, but say the City value goes up  by a few 10’s million’s then the City can and will sell more bonds and Dickert’s pals must be paid, hell for that matter Jim Ladwig’s GOP pal’s must get paid.

Will the City be able to raise property Taxes and help to drive out the poor blacks out, creating empty houses for flipping opportunities for cronies from Builders to Real Estate folks .

In 5 years will we have as many poor blacks in the Uptown or will Mayor John Dickert have as I think, he wants a more white Racine.

End result tax payers get fucked, The Black residents get fucked the cronies get paid.

Part 3 more detailed look at the inter linking

 

 

The Uptown or Get out of Racine if your Black!

gf

When to the Uptown Public Input Meeting last night and here is my observations

The J-T’s story http://journaltimes.com/news/local/residents-weigh-in-on-uptown-redevelopment/article_69beb6dc-84f3-11e3-8589-0019bb2963f4.html

1) We are fucked, nothing we can do to stop this (but something we can try more on that) The City  of Racine is grasping at straws at gentrification ideas why? The only way to get property values up and keep the few Home owners who pay taxes and maintain homes to stay because it may not be worth the fight   example from the story “We’re surrounded by rental properties that aren’t taken care of,” Merwin said. “There’s got to be some kind of incentive for landowners to keep up their properties.”

Sadly I see them looking to get $$ for doing what they should be waiting to do, but when your the only one doing anything it gets old fast, now what would they say if asked thoughts about businesses in Downtown Racine who are not paying taxes and they are …

2) A good 25% if not more of the crowd was made up of City of Racine Elected Officials, City of Racine/County of Racine Staff and the Crew of crooks I mean Consultants from   Vandewalle & Associates. Mind you Uptown Racine from what I was told by Matt from the City of Racine is mostly Black and below age income OK WHERE WERE THEY? Not in that room not at all.

I saw maybe maybe 2 maybe that I thought was a goal NOT to have the blacks who live in Uptown be part of this

You see the goal of this is

iTG

Or Drive the Poor our bring in the rich or like Racine is famous for bring in the rich Whites who will pay property taxes (even if Downtown Racine may not be) spend Money in the dead down town bonus if they buy hats or boats.

3) The Speakers tried hard to sell the idea of the Dream if only we did this Racine become a place to go that rich whites would come to Racine and blow $$! Right of course they will!! The City Administrator said so!  Would he lie to you???   Has not Delta Hawk Hired millions? Has not Porters brought millions downtown? Did not the spokesman from RCEDC say that 6000 work in the Downtown? Where?  might they counting the total # of employees  say at J-W if the HQ is in the Uptown?

4) At every Table for the breakout IMHO EVERY leader at the tables were from the Bid or Vandewalle so you  know that only the agreed upon in advance ideas are going to make it into the plan such needed things for a majority Black Low Income area as Coffee Shops (at least they can be bus boys) Open Air Food stores (Gee it was hard as hell to get a food Co-OP to even look at West Racine  what kind of bribe will it take to get a food store in the Uptown?

“a public gathering place on 14th Street and Washington Avenue” right! to do what mill about?

So sad see this plan that IMHO, Vandewalle know what they will have it say for Dickert has told them will in a nut shell do:

Enrich Dickert pals who know what is to come and have businesses ready to rape I mean pillage I mean take advantage of this plan.

Now I think we cant stop this plan from being created we can do this

Write a letter to our members of Congress asking them to investigate the City of Racine for Racism due to questions brought up from Pattern or Practice a Film on Racine Issues in the City of Racine and until this is done not to give any Grants to the City or County of Racine for

RootWorks

Reef point Marnia

Uptown Plan

Should the Feds show up or even get interested that will stop the plan dead.

Question does anyone know if Kim Kane running for the 2nd district alderman went to Mexico with Mayor Dickert?
