Rick Sollars & Another Grand Jury Unsealment

There seems to be a trend when it comes to unsealing grand jury material and the requests, thereof.

Funny how that works.

I bet that sucks for Rick Sollars, and his sidekick Slim Shady.

FBI probe of Taylor mayor expands into election activities

The FBI has subpoenaed documents about Taylor Mayor Rick Sollars' re-election fundraising while investigating the Downriver politician for racketeering, bribery, wire fraud and money laundering, according to a grand jury subpoena.
"You can pick up the quiet title deed next week."
The FBI has subpoenaed documents about Taylor Mayor Rick Sollars' re-election fundraising while investigating the Downriver politician for racketeering, bribery, wire fraud and money laundering, according to a grand jury subpoena obtained by The Detroit News.

Investigators are focused on the use of the city-owned Lakes of Taylor golf course from 2016-18 and whether Sollars' re-election committee or a third party paid to use the facilities, according to the subpoena.

The subpoena provides new insight into an ongoing corruption investigation that emerged publicly in February when FBI agents raided City Hall, the mayor's home and cottage, and the home and office of a city contractor. Investigators seized campaign records and $206,493 from Sollars and later raided the home and business of a second businessman.

The grand jury subpoena was issued in April but revealed Tuesday when attorney Andrew Paterson obtained a copy via a Freedom of Information Act request.

"It is apparent from the newly released federal grand jury subpoenas that Mayor Sollars may be facing multiple federal felonies," Paterson wrote in an email to The News. "The detail contained in the newly released federal grand jury subpoenas seem to indicate that a number of city vendors have been spilling the beans with respect to Mayor Sollars and his campaign fundraisers."

Prosecutors have not filed any criminal charges since searching the locations, and Sollars remains in office.

An FBI spokeswoman declined comment and Sollars' attorney could not be reached immediately for comment Wednesday. Taylor city spokesman Karl Ziomek declined comment.

The golf course and banquet center has been a frequent setting for Sollars, who delivered his State of the City address at the facility two days after the FBI raids and professed his innocence. The grand jury subpoena sought documentation related to golf fundraisers and cigar parties Sollars' re-election committee held at the golf course since 2016.

Specifically, the subpoena requested copies of checks, credit card documents and records of any cash payments to the Lakes of Taylor related to the various events.

Sollars’ election committee has not filed a campaign statement since last year, according to county elections records. In October 2018, the committee reported a $162,382 balance.

Sollars’ campaign hired the Clark Hill law firm to review campaign finance reports and correct irregularities involving contributions and expenses, attorney Michael Pattwell wrote in an email to The News.

“Since this summer, the committee has been working with the Michigan Secretary of State to prepare amended campaign finance reports…,” Pattwell wrote. “Once the committee has amended those historic campaign finance reports it will turn its attention to preparing and filing the more recent reports which had not been filed due to the federal government seizing the underlying records in an unrelated matter.”

During the City Hall search, investigators were hunting for records linking the mayor to property management owner Shady Awad, records involving the mayor's personal and campaign finances, and his casino activity, according to search warrant records obtained by The News.

Sollars, 45, was elected mayor of the Downriver community 17 miles southwest of Detroit in November 2013 following two terms on the City Council and a career in private business as a partner of three Romulus-based manufacturing companies.

Federal prosecutors want to seize his home and vacation chalet in Lenawee County and have filed liens to have the approximately $600,000 worth of real estate forfeited to the government upon conviction.

Elijah Cummings Has Left Congress Forever

Much love, Elijah.

US Rep. Elijah Cummings has died from complications of longtime health challenges, his office said in a statement

October 17, 2019

BALTIMORE (AP) ⁠— Maryland Rep. Elijah E. Cummings died early Thursday at Johns Hopkins Hospital due to complications from longstanding health challenges, his congressional office said. He was 68.

A sharecropper's son, Cummings became the powerful chairman of a U.S. House committee that investigated President Donald Trump, and was a formidable orator who passionately advocated for the poor in his black-majority district, which encompasses a large portion of Baltimore as well as more well-to-do suburbs.

As chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Cummings led multiple investigations of the president's governmental dealings, including probes in 2019 relating to the president's family members serving in the White House.

Trump responded by criticizing the Democrat's district as a "rodent-infested mess" where "no human being would want to live." The comments came weeks after Trump drew bipartisan condemnation following his calls for Democratic congresswomen of color to get out of the U.S. "right now," and go back to their "broken and crime-infested countries."

Cummings replied that government officials must stop making "hateful, incendiary comments" that only serve to divide and distract the nation from its real problems, including mass shootings and white supremacy.

"Those in the highest levels of the government must stop invoking fear, using racist language and encouraging reprehensible behavior," Cummings said in a speech at the National Press Club.

Cummings' long career spanned decades in Maryland politics. He rose through the ranks of the Maryland House of Delegates before winning his congressional seat in a special election in 1996 to replace former Rep. Kweisi Mfume, who left the seat to lead the NAACP.

Cummings continued his rise in Congress. In 2016, he was the senior Democrat on the House Benghazi Committee, which he said was "nothing more than a taxpayer-funded effort to bring harm to Hillary Clinton's campaign" for president.

Cummings was an early supporter of Barack Obama's presidential bid in 2008.

DOJ: South Korean National and Hundreds of Others Charged Worldwide in the Takedown of the Largest Darknet Child Pornography Website, Which was Funded by Bitcoin

Typically, the perpetrators were once the victims.

It is generational.

Praise the lord for there is much more to learn what is done to children in the name of the tax exempt god.

Dozens of Minor Victims Who Were Being Actively Abused by the Users of the Site Rescued

Jong Woo Son, 23, a South Korean national, was indicted by a federal grand jury in the District of Columbia for his operation of Welcome To Video, the largest child sexual exploitation market by volume of content.  The nine-count indictment was unsealed today along with a parallel civil forfeiture action.  Son has also been charged and convicted in South Korea and is currently in custody serving his sentence in South Korea.  An additional 337 site users residing in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington State and Washington, D.C. as well as the United Kingdom, South Korea, Germany, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the Czech Republic, Canada, Ireland, Spain, Brazil and Australia have been arrested and charged.   
Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Jessie K. Liu for the District of Columbia, Chief Don Fort of IRS Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI) and Acting Executive Associate Director Alysa Erichs of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), made the announcement.
“Darknet sites that profit from the sexual exploitation of children are among the most vile and reprehensible forms of criminal behavior,” said Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.  “This Administration will not allow child predators to use lawless online spaces as a shield.  Today’s announcement demonstrates that the Department of Justice remains firmly committed to working closely with our partners in South Korea and around the world to rescue child victims and bring to justice the perpetrators of these abhorrent crimes.”
“Children around the world are safer because of the actions taken by U.S. and foreign law enforcement to prosecute this case and recover funds for victims,” said U.S. Attorney Jessie K. Liu.  “We will continue to pursue such criminals on and off the darknet in the United States and abroad, to ensure they receive the punishment their terrible crimes deserve.”
“Through the sophisticated tracing of bitcoin transactions, IRS-CI special agents were able to determine the location of the Darknet server, identify the administrator of the website and ultimately track down the website server’s physical location in South Korea,” said IRS-CI Chief Don Fort.  “This largescale criminal enterprise that endangered the safety of children around the world is no more.  Regardless of the illicit scheme, and whether the proceeds are virtual or tangible, we will continue to work with our federal and international partners to track down these disgusting organizations and bring them to justice.”
“Children are our most vulnerable population, and crimes such as these are unthinkable,” said HSI Acting Executive Associate Director Alysa Erichs.  “Sadly, advances in technology have enabled child predators to hide behind the dark web and cryptocurrency to further their criminal activity.  However, today’s indictment sends a strong message to criminals that no matter how sophisticated the technology or how widespread the network, child exploitation will not be tolerated in the United States. Our entire justice system will stop at nothing to prevent these heinous crimes, safeguard our children, and bring justice to all.”
According to the indictment, on March 5, 2018, agents from the IRS-CI, HSI, National Crime Agency in the United Kingdom, and Korean National Police in South Korea arrested Son and seized the server that he used to operate a Darknet market that exclusively advertised child sexual exploitation videos available for download by members of the site.  The operation resulted in the seizure of approximately eight terabytes of child sexual exploitation videos, which is one of the largest seizures of its kind.  The images, which are currently being analyzed by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), contained over 250,000 unique videos, and 45 percent of the videos currently analyzed contain new images that have not been previously known to exist.
Welcome To Video offered these videos for sale using the cryptocurrency bitcoin.  Typically, sites of this kind give users a forum to trade in these depictions.  This Darknet website is among the first of its kind to monetize child exploitation videos using bitcoin.  In fact, the site itself boasted over one million downloads of child exploitation videos by users.  Each user received a unique bitcoin address when the user created an account on the website.  An analysis of the server revealed that the website had more than one million bitcoin addresses, signifying that the website had capacity for at least one million users. 
The agencies have shared data from the seized server with law enforcement around the world to assist in identifying and prosecuting customers of the site.  This has resulted in leads sent to 38 countries and yielded arrests of 337 subjects around the world.  The operation has resulted in searches of residences and businesses of approximately 92 individuals in the United States.  Notably, the operation is responsible for the rescue of at least 23 minor victims residing in the United States, Spain and the United Kingdom, who were being actively abused by the users of the site.
In the Washington, D.C.-metropolitan area, the operation has led to the execution of five search warrants and eight arrests of individuals who both conspired with the administrator of the site and were themselves, users of the website.  Two users of the Darknet market committed suicide subsequent to the execution of search warrants.

Road To Impeachment: The Ukraine CPS Impeachment v. 2016 Russian Election Interference - "Where's The DNC Server?"

This is the same exact thing they do in a Child Abuse & Neglect case, where you are presumed guilty until proven innocent, without the right to face one's accuser, through secret hearings.

But Trump did ask, "Where's the DNC Server?"

This is the part where we sit back and watch the media blatantly ignore that question.

JUDICIARY: Full Mark Up With The Launch Of Their Latest Russian Whistleblower Olympic Psyoptic

Yes, that is correct.

The soothsaying Celestial Goddess of the Woodshed has spoken as the oracle of D.C., that the "LEgal Geniuses" (trademark pending) would quickly launch another fabulous psyoptic.

I am going to have to give this one a solid A-.

Her Flatulent Boviness, otherwise known as Sheila Jackson Lee and her co-conspirator Jolly Jerry Nadler, are promulgating a Russian whistleblower protection bill for Olympic doping of athletes, replete with a right of action of whistleblower protections, meaning the ability to claim the bounty,

Now, allow me to tell tale of this international doping in Olympics antidoping legislation.

It is called the Larry Nassar Scandal.

Of course, it was originally called the Jerry Sandusky Scandal, but everyone forgot about that due to poor psyoptic propaganda marketing, oh, and the fact that the Pennsylvania Catholic Church is experiencing a bit of a legal difficulty confessing its operations when it comes to trafficking humans.

Yes, all those Russian and Ukrainian kids, all come out the foster care system, who are eventually adopted by a loving U.S. family, where the children grow up to be youths, who are probably doped up on some form of second generation anti-psychotropic, or the latest and greatest genetic experiment, which is all Medicaid funded, where that fraudulently billed Medicaid is being sent right back out the U.S.

Her Flatulent Boviness got her happy ass right out on the House Floor as her first action after she read a fraudulently generated testimony into the public record, to support a laundry list of youth sports NGOs. (I had the video but it went somewhere).

Jolly Jerry was all on fraud.

He was actually sincere, but then again, the entire tone of the hearing was submissive in tone, which has led me to believe, with support of my data analytics, that the "Legal Geniuses" (trademark pending) has finally figured out the origins of the Mueller Investigation - Russian Election Interference Report.

Yes, I do believe Her Flatulent Boviness and her co-conspirator Jolly Jerry, are about to throw their other co-conspirators under the proverbial legal tsunami because the OIG DOJ Report comes out in less than 48 hours.

Arkansas got a bill to reduce its District Courts from 5 to 3.

Now, they go get online to see what I said.

This should be fun because I have popcorn.

JUDICIARY: Hearing On Border Babies, Trafficking Tiny Humans & The New Bethany Christian Human Plantations

The hearing goes into the operations of the christian NGOs setting up humanitarian relief in the form of human plantations and trafficking tiny humans up to Michigan.

These christian child welfare NGOs are breaking ground for foreign operations to swashbuckle in and establish their own rules and regulations, in the name of the tax exempt god, on the care and welfare of the child.

Yet, not once did the Members even bat an eye to question about parental rights?

By what legal mechanism does a random ass christian child welfare NGO just set up shop and claim to bear the arms of the United States, to protect children?

Once these children, and vulnerable adults, who obviously, do not possess the legal capacity to care for themselves, have their souls salvaged on that fabulously salvific christian mission to claim those corporate parental rights, what is the citizenship?

You heard me.

If an U.S. child welfare NGO, explicitly the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops can operate in another nation, where, in this instance, is operating in the trafficking of tiny humans by transferring them, in body and soul, to be placed in U.S. Foster Care, what is the citizenship?

What jurisdictions do these christian NGOs fall under?

Vatican law, where the House Judiciary just putzs along, whistling a happy tune as those campaign contributions and congregational votes come in for the 2020 reelection because you can now fraudulently bill Medicaid for all those Targeted Case Management Social Impact Bond Programs for their foreign corporations.

Praise the lord.

Meet Malgosia Fitzmaurice & Her United Nations Trafficking Tiny Humans ASFA Propaganda Crap

Malgosia Fitzmaurice
Everyone, meet Malgosia Fitzmaurice.

Malgoise is a trailblazer when it comes to the industry of trafficking tiny humans because she spearheaded the international reengineering the residuals of the peculiar industry by pushing child welfare propaganda to coincide with the launch of ASFA.

The Tooth Fairy is my favorite trafficking tiny humans revenue maximization project.

歯の妖精からの贈りもの - TOOTH FAIRY
The Tooth Fairy
What is TOOTH FAIRY project ? The metal used for dental treatment and dentures is made of an alloy containing gold and palladium, and it is an important fund to support children by collecting and recycling a lot. The TOOTH FAIRY project is being promoted by donating metal collected with the cooperation of patients by dentists who sympathize with this activity .


What is really odd is that I believe The Nippon Foundation may be one of those fake ass child welfare NGO, but, hey, what do I know?

I know nothing because I could not find any instrument of authority.

We must definitely ask Malgosia.

Malgosia Fitzmaurice
This article' in part presents the views expressed in the papers which
were read, and the discussion which took place, during the workshop on The
Right of the Child to a Clean Environment, organized at Queen Mary and
Westfield College, University of London, in November 1997. An extensive
survey' on the right of the child to a clean environment at the international and
national levels, conducted in 1996-1997 by Agata Fijalkowski and Malgosia
Fitzmaurice, preceded the workshop. Ultimately, a book entitled Right of the
Child to a Clean Environment will be published in 1999. The entire project
originated from The Program on the International Rights of the Child, under
the directorship of Professor Geraldine Van Bueren.
The problem of the right of the child to a clean environment is part of a
broader problem of the right to a clean environment in general. In this
respect, several fundamental issues are still unresolved, including the very
question of the existence of such a right.'
*    Professor of Public International Law, Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London.
I.   This Article is an extended version of a lecture entitled International Environmental Protection and
the Rights of the Child, which was presented by the author on September 8, 1998 as part of the 25th
Anniversary Celebration of the Law series at Southern Illinois University School of Law.
2.   The questionnaires were sent to the following:
Selected Ministries of Justice and Foreign Affairs of states in five regions, which
included Europe (Finland, Poland, Spain, United Kingdom), Africa (Kenya,
Rwanda, South Africa), Asia (Singapore, Thailand, India, Philippines), South
America (Brazil, Peru, Argentina), and North America (Canada (Ottawa), United
States (California), Mexico); International Organizations, including the United
Nations (Commission on Sustainable Development, Sub-Commission on the
Prevention of Discrimination and Minorities, United Nations Environment and
Development, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and UNESCO),
and Regional organizations (Council of Europe, Organization of American States,
Organization of African Unity, World Bank, the Vice Presidency for
Environmentally Sustainable Development).
3.   The lack of agreement and the feeling of general confusion which pervades this discussion is, in fact,
a noticeable feature present in all publications on this topic. Human Approaches to Environmental

Republicans Got Kicked Out Democrat CPS Ex-Parte Hearing Transposable Model

I really do not understand what the big fuss is all about because they do it all the time in child protective services proceedings.

You are guilty, until proven innocent, where you are not allowed to confront your accuser.

And now, they eat each other alive, for they have no idea of what is to come...for them.

Hillary Clinton: America is losing credibility on world stage

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton waves at the crowd as she walk onto stage during the Weiser Diplomacy Center Inaugural Lecture at the U-M's Rackham, Auditorium in Ann Arbor, Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019. 

As she gave an oral tour of the world's hot spots for a capacity crowd at the University of Michigan, Hillary Clinton had a suggestion for what needs to be done.

"There are ways of working on thorny problems, but they take thought and planning and diplomacy," said the former Democratic presidential nominee, secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady. And not just normal diplomacy — "intelligent diplomacy."

Then she paused for a long second for the crowd to read between the lines — that's not what the Trump administration is doing.

Later, she was more direct. Asked how America can better engage on the world stage, she said, "Our current president can have an epiphany," she said.

"We are losing our credibility. If you fight for America and then you are betrayed, what does that mean? We've got a lot of repair work to do.

"A lot of the voices who constrained the president are gone. I was lucky to work for a president who encouraged dissent."

During the 90-minute session, which started with U-M's Ford School Dean Michael Barr asking questions in a conversation and concluded with Clinton answering questions submitted by the audience, she touched on the hot topics of the day, including:

Ukraine: "The Ukrainian scandal should have triggered impeachment, but let's not forget the broader picture. The Ukrainian president is under pressure from Putin. He's under pressure from the American president. Ukraine (in Putin's view) belongs to Russia. Not to the Ukrainian people." She also pointed out that Trump recently withdrew the United States from the Open Skies treaty, which allowed satellites to take pictures of what was happening on the ground. She wondered aloud if that was done to let Putin move troops into the Ukraine without anyone noticing.

On pro-democracy rallies in Hong Kong: "When it comes to Hong Kong, I don't think Chinese would have a problem if we said we support democracy. I think it's a shame we've retreated so far. When America is silent about these fundamental human rights, no one else is going to speak."
On Turkey's invasion into Syria, and President Donald Trump's withdrawal of American troops: "I can't give you hopeful answer (to path forward in Syria). I fear it will give ISIS a revival. (Syrian President Bashar al-) Assad has become a tool of the Iranian and Russian interests." She said Trump gave Turkey "a green light" to invade Syria, adding everyone knew that's what was going to happen as soon as Trump announced the troop withdrawal.

On foreign influence in her election run against Trump and future elections: "First, acknowledge it happened. There seems to be very little appetite in our federal government to do anything about (foreign interference in elections). Here's what I tell Democrat candidates currently running for president who talk to me. You could lose for four reasons not under your control: Voter suppression; having information stolen from your campaign and weaponized against you; having a stream of outrageous stories fed to people's Facebook feeds;  and the actual foreign interference with the election."

The event was part of the launch of the Weiser Diplomacy Center at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, which is funded Ron Weiser, the current U-M board chairman and prominent Michigan Republican. Last week, former Republican Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spoke as part of the same series.

More than 1,000 tickets were distributed for the event. But how many showed up?

Kevin Adell Has Launched The #coloredrevolution In Detroit

Oh my!

We have ourselves the launch of the Detroit #coloredrevolution with the church-ez.

Meet Kevin Adell.

Kevin has many a tales to tell.

I still have popcorn, you know.

Word Network owner Adell says he sent offensive meme to pastor to 'make him aware'

Kevin Adell
Local TV and radio station owner Kevin Adell admitted Sunday to sending a racially charged meme to Bishop George Bloomer, a North Carolina pastor who recently parted ways with his religious TV network over the direction of his show.

But Adell, the owner of WADL TV-38, 910-AM Superstation and The Word Network denied creating the meme and said he sent it to Bloomer to "make him aware" of it.

Bloomer was one of the pastors depicted in the meme, which shows Adell draped in a white fur coat and fur hat, an image reminiscent of 1970s pimp caricatures, with four black pastors from The Word Network and a Lamborghini behind him.

"I'm offended by the picture as well," said Adell. "I had nothing to do with the picture."

Last week, a group identifying itself as Concerned African-American Clergy & Allies kicked off an online boycott of The Word Network. As of 2 p.m. Sunday, more than 3,700 people had signed the petition on

Although he is mentioned in the petition language 18 times, it is unclear if Bloomer, the senior pastor of Bethel Family Worship Center in Durham, NC., is behind it.

Efforts to reach Bloomer Sunday were not successful. Bloomer has said he plans to pursue a different network for his television show, which aired for eight years.

According to the online petition, Bloomer told Adell that the picture, sent to him in an electronic message, "is not funny" and "not good."

"That pimp talk and hoe talk has racist connotations for Black people," the online petition reads.

The petition adds that, "To ignore Bishop Bloomer’s respectful request to end this line of text and comments is to ignore the dignity of the African-American community. Kevin Adell may own The Word Network but it is the Black community that made the network a success. If the Black community is not respected by The Word Network then we should pull our support from this network. The actions of Kevin Adell prove that we can no longer trust The Word Network to bring the Gospel into our homes."

Adell said Bloomer, the former longtime host of The Word Network's "Rejoice In The Word" Christian show, is using the picture "as a symbol to get attention."

Adell said the controversy stems from a disagreement over Bloomer's show and the station's desire to have him improve his ratings. Both Bloomer and Adell say Bloomer left the show on his own and was not fired.

"He got upset that he needed to change the show," Adell said Sunday. "I asked him not to leave."

Bloomer briefly mentioned the controversy during a live sermon streamed via Twitter Sunday (the comment comes around 1 hour and 26 minutes into the stream).

The organizers of the petition drive against Adell and his companies are asking churchgoers, clergy members and others to boycott Adell's companies and unfollow the Word Network on social media.

Adell said he is aware of the boycott and said, "Time will heal. Time will pass."
Bishop George Bloomer

As for the meme itself, Dodie Johnson, Adell's station manager, said Sunday she found it online and shared it with Adell to show him what was out on social media about the station.

"It's bad. It's uncomfortable," said Johnson, who is African-American. "We brought the picture to his attention."

Detroit News columnists Henry Payne and Bankole Thompson host shows on 910 AM Superstation. Nolan Finley, The News' editorial page editor, was fired from the station in August after hosting a morning show for two years.

Below, is the petition.

Black Clergy & Allies Call For Boycott of The Word Network

Concerned African-American Clergy & Allies started this petition to The Word Network
The Word Network is one of the largest Christian television networks targeting the Black community, but sadly in September 2019 incidents of racism have occurred at the network. The Word Network is not Black owned but is owned by Kevin Adell who is White. Recently, his actions have shown that even though he has profited off of the Black community, Mr. Adell does not have regard for Black humanity. Bishop George Bloomer, a pioneer in the Christian faith, has contributed a great deal to the success of the Word network. Recently, Bishop Bloomer has testified to issues of flagrant racism committed by Word Network owner, Kevin Adell. These incidents include:

Texting a photo that was created, depicting Adell who is White, dressed as a pimp and various well-known Black clergy surrounding him as his “hoes”. Although Adell did not create this image, he wasn’t offended by it and even texted it to various staff (many of whom are African-American) including Bishop Bloomer. This created a hostile work environment for Bishop Bloomer and others.

When Bishop Bloomer stated: “This is not funny. This is not good. That pimp talk and hoe talk has racist connotations for Black people.” Adell texted Bishop Bloomer a second time and said that “it’s funny and he should get over it.”

When Bishop Bloomer went to Kevin Adell and his assistant Ralph in person at The Word Network: and told them: “Don’t ever tweet that. You should get rid of it. This is not funny. Don’t play with this and don’t play with it with me.” Instead of apologizing for his offensive candidness concerning the matter, Adell went further by photoshopping a picture of Bishop Bloomer in a white tuxedo, and underneath the photo was typed text that said, “The show last night was good, Tattoo (the dwarf from Fantasy Island who ran around calling Mr. Roarke “Boss”). Kevin Adell was alluding to Bishop Bloomer being HIS Tattoo, and him being “Boss.” Although Mr. Roarke on Fantasy Island was a good character, the term “boss” in the Black community carries the connotation of “massa,” and that is precisely what Kevin Adell was suggesting. The article that accompanied the photo-shopped image of Kevin as a pimp and his hoes even refers to him as the “massa” of The Word Network.
The final straw came when: Bishop Bloomer texted Adell again, “This is not good. I don’t know what you’re doing, but stop playing.” Adell replied, “Oh, you’re too sensitive.”  Bishop Bloomer explained that what he was doing was the equivalent of a white man wearing black face. Bishop Bloomer told Adell again, “Get rid of this. Stop playing with this.” Kevin then texted Bishop Bloomer a photo of himself in a white tuxedo standing next to a friend of his also wearing a white tuxedo and, as if with a sharpie, he blacked out the face of the friend, thus producing black face and texting it to an African-American man.

As a result of the above actions, Bishop Bloomer made the decision to leave The Word Network.

During these times of increased incidents of hate across our country, we as African-American clergy and allies of the African-American community cannot remain silent in the face of this blatant racism. Black-face, pimp and hoe imagery, boss aka “massa” comments, all are connected to the historical trauma African-Americans have endured for 400 years in this country. To ignore Bishop Bloomer’s respectful request to end this line of text and comments is to ignore the dignity of the African-American community. Kevin Adell may own The Word Network but it is the Black community that made the network a success. If the Black community is not respected by The Word Network then we should pull our support from this network. The actions of Kevin Adell prove that we can no longer trust The Word Network to bring the Gospel into our homes. We, as Black clergy, demand Kevin Adell publicly apologize to Bishop Bloomer and the African-American community. We also demand that cable companies drop The Word Network from their packages.

We are asking Black Clergy, allies and Black people of faith to do the following:

1) Clergy add your name to this letter and announce from your pulpits during service that we are boycotting The Word Network as a community. When signing the petition please add your full ministry title and first name where it states first name. Email us at

2) Boycott The Word Network by not watching the network and canceling The Word Network on your cable plans.

3) Unfollow The Word Network on all social media platforms and encourage your followers on social media to do the same.

4) Members of faith communities send this letter to your clergy person for him or her to sign.

Watch this exclusive interview between Larry Reid and Paul Crouch, Jr. about the racial insensitivity in Christian TV

When it comes to injustice scripture tells us in Isaiah 58:1 to “cry aloud and spare not”. We cannot remain silent in the face of racism, disrespect and ultimately the exploitation of our community and our faith. Don’t delay let us act in unity today!

In Faith & Justice,

Concerned African-American Clergy & Allies

Dana Nessel & Her MSU Email FOIA Transposable Model

You would think, as the Michigan Attorney General, Dana would know that in child welfare everything is a secret, protected by law, layered up through Public Private Partnerships, made up of fake ass child welfare NGOs, doing lots of trafficking tiny human stuff.


There is no right to FOIA when dealing with a federally contracted, foreign, sub recipient of federal funding, because there are no rights to a civil society in privatization.


Then there are those FOIA Exemptions and Exclusions, particularly when dealing with anything with a cross and a kid.

Praise the lord.

If Dana can find a way of getting those emails, well, gosh golly, I believe we may have ourselves one of those transposable models I so much adore.

Nessel calls for MSU to release 6K emails to help state Nassar probe

Attorney General Dana Nessel speaks to members of the public and the media at FOIA Fest, an event about the Freedom of Information Act, hosted by the Society for Professional Journalists at Wayne State University on Saturday.Detroit — Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel told a room of journalists and members of the public that she is "deeply ashamed" that Michigan is the only state that exempts the governor, lieutenant governor and state lawmakers from Freedom of Information Act requests.

"We are not opening the doors to state government," Nessel said Saturday. "In fact, we are locking them with deadbolts, and then we are nailing boards across them, and then there’s a moat … that’s what FOIA feels like with our state government."

Nessel was the keynote speaker at a day-long festival focused on how to reform FOIA exclusions to the executive and legislative branches of government, developing a state ombudsman or independent commission for FOIA appeals, and reform excessive fees, delays and loopholes in the state's system.

Nessel, who took office in January, has called for more government transparency while noting Michigan's current FOIA restrictions.

"I can’t think of anything more important than to have the public have all the tools available to them and know how to get information," she said.

Kat Stafford, a reporter for the Detroit Free Press, introduced Nessel, saying the attorney general was invited to the FOIA Festival, hosted at Wayne State University by the Society of Professional Journalists, because she's been advocating the importance of government transparency for Michigan residents.

Current and former members of the The South End student newspaper at Wayne State University, which is funded by the university but is editorially independent, share difficulties of filing FOIA requests within their own campus and how they studied student press law after being restricted.Current and former members of the The South End student newspaper at Wayne State University, which is funded by the university but is editorially independent, share difficulties of filing FOIA requests within their own campus and how they studied student press law after being restricted.

Nessel also used the event to take a few shots at the Trump administration, saying the lack of transparency in Michigan is nothing compared to what is going on at the federal level.

"While I am embarrassed on various levels for our lack of transparency in Michigan, but what’s happening in the federal government right now is absolutely unacceptable," Nessel said. "Without these constructs in place, it will be the end of America as we know it."

Nessel also addressed the investigation of John Geddert, a former USA Gymnastics coach who oversaw a Michigan club where multiple victims of sexual predator Larry Nassar trained, Nessel said her office continues to try to get documents Michigan State University has withheld under attorney-client privilege.

MSU initially withheld 7,500 documents under attorney-client privilege and it appears as though her office is not going to see 6,000 of those documents because the university has "fought this office every step of the way."

She called it disingenuous that MSU would ask for the attorney general's office to investigate and then refuse to provide the evidence they need.

"We’ve taken this as far as we can. To fully complete our investigation, we absolutely need to have those emails," she said. "I would ask the board of trustees to reconsider and provide us with those 6,000 plus emails so we can actually complete our investigation."

Beth Konrad, president of the SPJ Detroit chapter and adjunct professor at WSU, said the idea for Saturday's FOIA festival was aimed to build greater awareness and understanding of FOIA and Michigan's Open Meeting Act for better government transparency.

DOJ: Michigan Attorney Indicted for Tax Fraud

I remember him from Pentas.

Allegedly Used His Attorney Trust Account to Conceal Income

A grand jury in Detroit, Michigan, returned an indictment yesterday charging Carl L. Collins III, a Michigan attorney, with tax evasion, filing two false tax returns and seven counts of willfully failing to file individual and corporate tax returns, announced Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard E. Zuckerman of the Justice Department’s Tax Division and U.S. Attorney Matthew J. Schneider for the Eastern District of Michigan.
According to the indictment, Collins was a personal injury attorney with offices in Southfield, Michigan.  Collins also allegedly owned two medical companies, MedCity Rehabilitation Services LLC and Alpha Living LLC, as well as a real estate company called First Third LLC.  The indictment charges that Collins filed a tax return for 2012 with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which failed to report approximately $550,000 in income.  Collins allegedly deposited most of this unreported income into an attorney trust account, which he failed to disclose to the Michigan State Bar Foundation and his tax return preparer. The indictment further alleges that Collins evaded personal income taxes for 2015 by depositing approximately $580,000 of income into his undisclosed attorney trust account and using much of the money to purchase real estate.  The indictment also charges that, in 2017, Collins filed a false delinquent tax return for 2015. 
The indictment further alleges that Collins willfully failed to timely file tax returns for several years for both himself and his corporations.  Specifically, Collins failed to timely file his individual tax returns for 2013 through 2015, corporate income tax returns for Alpha Living LLC for 2013 through 2015, and corporate income tax returns for MedCity Rehabilitation Services LLC for 2013. 
If convicted, Collins faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison for the tax evasion count, three years for each of the false return counts, and one year for each of the failure to file counts.  He also faces a period of supervised release, restitution, and monetary penalties.
An indictment merely alleges that crimes have been committed, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Zuckerman and U.S. Attorney Schneider commended special agents of IRS-Criminal Investigation, who conducted the investigation, and Trial Attorneys Kenneth Vert and Jeffrey McLellan of the Tax Division, who are prosecuting the case.
Additional information about the Tax Division and its enforcement efforts may be found on the division’s website.

I can smell stealin' the children, the land and the votes before I enter its realms of thiefdom.

The New York Police Department seems to have a very unique interest in this case, but we shall await for this tale to unfold.

I see children's trust funds.

Do you see campaigns?

I see campaigns.

I wonder when the real estate is going to come into play?

Brooklyn Supreme Court judge faces obstruction of justice charge

Another "Elected One of the Fashion Show Selfies" to celebrate in February.

Former New York City Police Department Officer and Supervisory Committee Member Also Charged With Embezzlement, Fraud, and Controlled Substance Offenses

Judge Sylvia Ash
Sylvia Ash
Geoffrey S. Berman, United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced today that SYLVIA ASH, presiding judge of the Kings County Supreme Court, Commercial Division, and former chair of the board of directors of Municipal Credit Union (“MCU”), was charged in Manhattan federal court with conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice, arising from a scheme to seek to influence and impede an ongoing federal investigation into fraud and corruption at MCU, a non-profit, multibillion-dollar financial institution.  U.S. Attorney Berman also announced today that Joseph Guagliardo, a/k/a “Joseph Gagliardo,” a former New York City Police Department Officer and former member of MCU’s supervisory committee, was charged separately with embezzlement, fraud, and controlled substance offenses arising from abuse of his position as a member of the supervisory committee.  Guagliardo was arrested in Brooklyn, New York, yesterday afternoon and was presented before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang in Manhattan federal court.  ASH was arrested at LaGuardia Airport this morning and is expected to appear before Magistrate Judge Wang in Manhattan federal court this afternoon.
U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said:  “The charges announced today reflect the latest in our ongoing work to uncover criminal conduct at the highest levels of MCU, a multibillion-dollar, federally insured credit union.  As alleged, Sylvia Ash, a sitting state court judge, took repeated steps to obstruct a federal investigation into significant financial misconduct at MCU during Ash’s tenure as chair of the board of directors.  Joseph Guagliardo allegedly abused his position as an MCU supervisory committee member to enrich himself and his family.”
According to the allegations contained in the two Complaints unsealed today in Manhattan federal court, publicly available information, and prior court filings:[1]
Municipal Credit Union
MCU is a non-profit financial institution headquartered in New York, New York, which is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (“NCUA”).  MCU is the oldest credit union in New York State and one of the oldest and largest in the country, providing banking services to more than 500,000 members, and with more than $2.9 billion in member accounts, each of which is federally insured for at least $250,000 by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, which is administered by the NCUA.  Membership in MCU is generally available to employees of New York City and its agencies, employees of the federal and New York state governments who work in New York City, and employees of hospitals, nursing homes, and similar facilities located within New York State.
At all relevant times, MCU was supposed to be overseen by a board of directors (the “Board”) and a supervisory committee (the “Supervisory Committee”), each of which was composed of volunteer members of MCU, who were not to be compensated.  According to New York banking law, the Supervisory Committee’s duties included supervision of the actions of MCU’s Board and officers.  MCU’s written conflict of interest policy, which was regularly distributed to Board members, Supervisory Committee members, and others, provided, among other things, that members of MCU’s “Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee may not do business with the Credit Union, either individually or as representative of any business entity.”
ASH is a New York State Supreme Court Justice in Kings County.  ASH has served as a judge in the New York State court system since at least approximately 2006, first as a Kings County Civil Court Judge, and, commencing in 2011, as a Kings County Supreme Court Justice.  In or about January 2016, ASH was appointed to be the presiding judge in the Kings County Supreme Court’s Commercial Division.
ASH served on MCU’s Board from in or about May 2008 until on or about August 15, 2016, when she resigned.  ASH also served as a trustee of MCU’s pension plan, a position from which she resigned on or about October 31, 2016.  From in or about May 2015 until her resignation from the Board, ASH served as the chair of the Board.
GUAGLIARDO is a former officer with the New York City Police Department, who retired in or about 1989.  In or about 1993, GUAGLIARDO joined the Supervisory Committee of MCU, a volunteer position, and remained in that position until he was removed from that position by the New York State Department of Financial Services on or about May 24, 2018, except for a brief period of time when he served as a member of MCU’s Board in or about 2008.  While he was a Supervisory Committee member, GUAGLIARDO sought to and did use his position to oversee aspects of MCU’s security and fraud department, including serving in the role of vice president of MCU’s security and fraud department while that position was vacant.
Kam Wong
From on or about at least 2007 until on or about June 12, 2018, Kam Wong served as MCU’s chief executive officer (“CEO”) and president.  On or about May 8, 2018, Wong was charged and arrested by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, and, on or about June 12, 2018, Wong was terminated by MCU.  On or about December 2, 2018, Wong pled guilty to a multimillion-dollar embezzlement from MCU, and acknowledged, in his written plea agreement, among other things, endeavoring to obstruct and impede and obstructing and impeding the administration of justice with respect to the criminal investigation into this matter, and agreeing with one or more others to do the same.
ASH’s Alleged Obstruction of Justice
From at least in or about 2012 through 2016, while serving as an MCU Board member and while Wong was CEO, ASH received annually tens of thousands of dollars in reimbursements and other benefits from MCU, including airfare, hotels, food and entertainment expenses for her and a guest to attend conferences domestically and abroad, as well as payment for phone and cable bills, and electronic devices.  Even after her resignation from the Board, Wong continued to provide or cause MCU to provide ASH with benefits, such as Apple devices. 
In or about January 2018, after Wong had been approached by federal law enforcement agents investigating potential financial misconduct by Wong involving MCU and in an attempt to protect Wong, ASH agreed to and did sign a false and misleading memorandum purporting to explain and justify millions of dollars in payments that Wong had received from MCU, which was then provided by Wong to law enforcement officers.
Subsequently, ASH agreed to and did continue to seek to influence and impede the federal investigation in multiple ways, including by (i) concealing and deleting relevant text messages and email messages and wiping her MCU-issued Apple iPhone in a further effort to destroy and impair the availability of evidence that had been sought by federal grand jury subpoenas, and (ii) making false and misleading statements to federal law enforcement officers in interviews conducted as part of a federal criminal investigation.
            GUAGLIARDO’s Alleged Embezzlement, Fraud, and Unlawful Provision of Controlled Substances to Wong
GUAGLIARDO engaged in a long-running scheme to defraud MCU, with the agreement and assistance of, among others, Wong.  Among other things, GUAGLIARDO defrauded and embezzled from MCU by causing it to direct more than $250,000 to a purported security company created and controlled by GUAGLIARDO, but operated in another’s name, which did little to no real work for MCU.  GUAGLIARDO also defrauded and embezzled from MCU by over-billing for more than $200,000 for purported web advertising services provided by a non-profit organization that GUAGLIARDO also controlled. 
In addition, during substantially the same period in which GUAGLIARDO was committing and concealing these offenses, GUAGLIARDO participated in a scheme to unlawfully distribute controlled substances to Wong, in the form of prescription drugs, some of which were obtained from GUAGLIARDO’s spouse, who worked as a doctor affiliated with a public hospital, and some of which were obtained from a doctor affiliated with the New York City Police Department.
*                *                *
ASH, 62, of Brooklyn, New York, is charged with one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison; and two counts of obstruction of justice, each of which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
GUAGLIARDO, 62, of Brooklyn, New York, is separately charged with one count of conspiracy to embezzle from a federal credit union, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison; one count of embezzlement, one count of conspiracy to defraud a financial institution, and one count of defrauding a financial institution, each of which carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison; and one count of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and one count of distribution of controlled substances, each of which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.  
The maximum potential sentences in these cases are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as any sentencing of the defendants will be determined by a judge.
U.S. Attorney Berman praised the outstanding work of the Special Agents of the United States Attorney’s Office.  Mr. Berman also thanked the New York County District Attorney’s Office, the New York State Department of Financial Services, and the New York City Police Department Internal Affairs Bureau for their assistance.
The case is being prosecuted by the Office’s Public Corruption Unit.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Eli J. Mark and Daniel C. Richenthal are in charge of the prosecution, with assistance of Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Alona Katz from the New York County District Attorney’s Office.
The charges contained in the Complaints are merely accusations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

[1] As the introductory phrase signifies, the entirety of the text of the Complaints, and the description of the Complaints set forth herein, constitute only allegations, and every fact described therein should be treated as an allegation.
