Lifestyles of Racine’s Rich, Famous & Politically Connected

All City of Racine residents should be as fortunate as Mayor Cory Mason and Municipal Judge Rebecca Mason, who purchased a Lakefront home at 3907 Lighthouse Drive for a steep discount from the (politically connected) owner who benefited, over time, at seeing his property assessment  drop by HALF – from a high of $800,000 in 2008, to a new low of $440,000 in 2018!

 

The former owner is Robert H. Lehner II, Father of Benjamin Lehner, who is employed by City of Racine Housing & Community Development as a Community Development Program Specialist –

Ben was also a member of Monte Osterman’s questionably legal Root River Council Inc., as was then Representative Cory Mason.  When a request was made, in accordance with IRS regulations, to view the Root River Council’s form 990, Monte Osterman refused to comply, because the Organization had failed to properly complete the registration process and was not filing 990’s – despite receiving tens of thousands of $$$ in grants from DNR, DOA Wisconsin Coastal Management Program, and others. When an Ethics Complaint was filed – it was immediately dismissed, and Monte Osterman directed any further requests to view the Form 990 to his Attorney, Rebecca Mason. According to IRS records, the Root River Council was TERMINATED as an Organization in 2013. Miraculously, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, it was re-born under former City Development Director and current RUSD Board member Brian O’connell in 2016!

What a Tangled Web They Weave!

Clearly,  Lakefront property values are in steep decline, as the $440,000 sale price evidences:

The City of Racine Assessor even certified that the discounted sale is usable as an Arms Length Sale!

While on the City’s front screen, the current property assessment information is 2 years out of date!

Just a quaint little Home on Lake Michigan!

Has City of Racine morphed into a criminal enterprise?

“Politics” is power used by social organisms to control others. Not only are human groups never alone, they cannot control their neighbors’ behavior. Each group must confront the real possibility that its neighbors will grow its numbers and attempt to take resources from them. Therefore, the best political tactic for groups to survive in such a milieu is not to live in ecological balance with slow growth, but to grow rapidly and be able to fend off and take resources from others.

20 Shot Overnight In Chicago: “I’m Scared To Walk To The Corner Store”

Chicago gun violence erupted to start this weekend, leaving two people dead and at least 18 others severely wounded, including a woman killed in a brutal domestic dispute. It follows last weekend’s record for violent crime, when 12 people were killed and 74 shot.

Some have linked the increased aggression among residents to relentless scorching hot temperatures this summer, and Chicago has been ground zero for inner city aggression in 2018. According to NBC Chicago, the most recent incident occurred Saturday morning in the Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side. A 25-year-old man was wounded in a shooting at about 1:55 a.m. in the 4000 block of West Grenshaw.

Law enforcement officials said he was standing outside when two people began firing shots that struck the man. First responders rushed him to St. Anthony’s Hospital with gunshot wounds to the buttocks and the groin, with the hospital now listing him in fair condition.

About 4:45 p.m. Friday, a 29-year-old woman involved in a domestic dispute with someone in the 2500 block of East 79th Street was killed, Chicago police said. The woman, who had a pending court order against the shooter, suffered a fatal gunshot to her back, police said.

Genice Hines, the mother of the 15-year-old, told the Chicago Tribune it felt like any other Friday night, until late evening when she left work and received a terrifying call. Her son and nephew, two close friends, had been shot. The boys were both standing at the 1300 block of South Independence Boulevard in the West Side’s Lawndale neighborhood when they heard gunfire. Reports indicated the children were about a block from the gas station at Roosevelt Road and Independence.

The 15-year-old was shot in the head, and the 17-year-old was shot in the abdomen. First responders took them both to Mount Sinai Hospital where they were both listed in good condition.

Chicago is a scary place to be,” Hines warned. “Even I’m scared to walk to the corner store.”

UNFIT TO SERVE! General Incompetence Still Reigns as Racine County DA Trish Hanson FAILS Yet Again!

UNFIT TO SERVE

Fumbling the football once again, Generally Incompetent Racine County District Attorney Trish “The Ham” Hanson demonstrates her complete lack of ability…

From A Better Mount Pleasant:

This is incredible.

In July, Mt. Pleasant police arrested a man for a 2017 stabbing at Cham-Tap. It turns out they never looked at the bar’s video footage until it was shown to them on Monday by Racine County Eye.

The video recording shows the man who was charged, leaving the bar 5 minutes before the stabbing took place. The video also shows that the man who was charged by MPPD looked nothing like the man who is believed to have stabbed two people.

Apparently, when charges were brought a couple of weeks ago by Racine County District Attorney Tricia Hanson, witnesses tried to contact both the MPPD and the District Attorney’s office to say they were charging the wrong guy.

They were told by Mt. Pleasant their statements were not needed and when they tried calling Hanson – the phone just kept ringing and ringing with no voicemail.

How is it possible that neither the MPPD or the D.A. looked at the video before Monday?

Mt. Pleasant police say they are now reopening the case and Hanson will be back in her office tomorrow.

It IS Incredible – but NOT unprecenteded!

Previous posts already revealed Trish Hanson’s general incompetence and failures.

The Arrest Report of Mount Pleasant Police Chief Tim Zarzecki

When the Mount Pleasant Police Chief and his wife behave together like Southern White Trailer Park Trash – Should it be any surprise that the Mount Pleasant Police Department can’t make a competent Police Investigation? Maybe the MTP Police Chief was too busy to act responsibly because….From the arrest report:

 

 

 

So Racine County DA Trish Hanson is not only GROSSLY Incompetent, but relies on faulty information provided by Mount Pleasant Police Chief  Timothy Zarzecki to file a Complaint, Arrest Innocent People, expose the taxpaying public to YET another Lawsuit – while MTP Police Chief Timothy Zarzecki  fights with his wife like complete White Trailer Trash as seen on Jerry Springer episodes. It’s a complete SNAFU. 

When Residents of MTP go to a Board meeting, are they attending an orderly meeting ruled by Roberts Rules of Orders – or experiencing a night at the Trailer Park Trash South hosted by MTP Police Chief Timothy Zarzecki and his  Kentucky trophy wife – who are engaged in a face spitting, drawer busting, throwing stuff around, Doritos scattered all over the floor,  dented cans, and claims of a a suicidal wife outta her mind because she has stopped taking her prescription meds,  requiring a service call by the Sheriff to STOP the mayhem? AT Taxpayers expense!

Chiraq Leads – Racine Follows! Black Chicagoans Blast “Con Man” Mayor (Cory Mason) OOPS! Emanuel Amid Record Shooting Spree, Ask Trump For Help


“Con Man” City of Racine Carpetbagging’ Mayor Cory Mason Leads in Shoving A Blue Fist up Racine Resident’s Azz Straight Outta Brooklyn, NY 

From Zero Hedge:

Black Chicagoans Blast “Con Man” Mayor Emanuel Amid Record Shooting Spree, Ask Trump For Help

77 people were shot last week in Chicago, 9 fatally, but the rate of shootings has accelerated aggressively today as ‘HeyJackass‘ reports 30 shot in 3 hours is the most shot in the least amount of time we’ve recorded in 5+ years. The previous record was July 4-5, 2016 w/ 29 shot in 6 hours.”

Amid this carnage, ABC7Chicago reports thatpolice said there was a “trauma lockdown” at Stroger Hospital with only immediate family members of victims are being allowed in the emergency room. A spokeswoman for Stroger Hospital disputes the police account.

“Over the past 24 hours, Stroger’s trauma unit received an unusually high volume of patients. At no time did Stroger go on bypass or ‘lockdown’ its trauma unit,” the spokeswoman said. “We are asking the families of trauma patients to limit visitation at this time to immediate family members only so staff may focus on patient care. “

This comes just days after Superintendent Eddie Johnson visited ABC7 and talked about decreasing crime numbers and overall violence in Chicago.

“I think some of our more challenging, communities, it’s just imperative that police and the community work together to reduce this gun violence,” Superintendent Johnson said. “We just have too many guns on the streets of Chicago.”

But, judging by the protests this week – that will shock the mainstream media narrative out of much of America – Chicagoans (particularly black inner city citizens) are furious at Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s impotence and are asking President Trump for help.

(like he’s dancing on the graves of the children that have been gunned down. look at me mommy, look at me!)

VIDEO: Mayor Rahm Emanuel busts a move at South Side music festival

Mayor Rahm Emanuel cut a serious rug today at a South Side music festival.

As Fox News reports, demonstrators took to the streets of Chicago this week to call for the resignation of Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D), blasting his administration for failing to curb the city’s gun violence epidemic.

Protesters expressed their outrage over the lack of economic development on the South and West Sides of the city, compared to the North Side, as gang violence continues to plague their neighborhoods.

“Rahm Emanuel is a con man. His whole job is to keep black folks divided,” one man told Fox News’ Gianno Caldwell, who covered the march.

One woman said Thursday that Emanuel “doesn’t care about anybody” except his own neighborhood and his own family, while another woman said Emanuel seems to care more about illegal immigrants in the city.

“African-Americans, we’re citizens, and our ancestors built this country,” she told Caldwell, whose younger brother survived a shooting last year that killed his best friend.

Rev. Ira Acree, one of the organizers of Thursday’s protest, said residents are tired of the “tale of two cities,” where one area is thriving and others are crippled by poverty and gang violence.

And finally, in the most shocking twist in today’s divided nation, it is interesting to see Democratic leaders in Chicago calling for President Trump to involve the National Guard.

State Rep. La Shawn Ford, a Democrat who represents the West Side of Chicago, called on President Trump to help the city.

“Not everyone believes Chicago is a Trump-free zone. If he’s serious about helping the people … I accept his help. We can’t turn any help away,” said Ford, adding that seniors and children need to have safe streets and federal authorities need to help the local police.

While from Second City Cop:

From our friends at HeyJackass.com:

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 60 shot & killed
  • 6 death by other means
  • 2 fatal police shootings
  • 1 homicide-linked arrest
  • Averaged 10.5 people shot per day
  • 3 days were homicide-free
  • 4 death investigations
  • 54 in serious or critical condition
  • 56 males killed vs 8 females
  • 62 teenagers shot, 5 killed
  • 17 grazed
  • 2 selfies
  • 13 #ShotInTheAss
That underlined portion is especially troubling. One arrest for 66 homicides. That clearance rate isn’t getting better at all.
Stick em up – GEORGE!

Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave Predicts an Earth Shattering KA -BOOM!

From The JT:

Racine County Executive commentary: The boom is coming – and we are ready

To put things in perspective, it’s worth reviewing some of the ways we are already preparing to maximize this historic opportunity for Racine County residents and businesses:

  • Workforce: We are in the midst of the most focused effort ever to develop the workforce in Racine County’s history. Far from throwing money at a problem, we have implemented unique approaches to get at the root of why some have been left behind for so long.

We launched Uplift 900, an innovative program to connect underserved City of Racine residents with resources to obtain family-sustaining employment. We introduced GreaterRacineAtWork.com, a web platform that identifies specific skills people have and matches them up to opportunities that fit those skills.

We are working with Manpower to strategically assess, for the first time, the talent supply and demand across multiple industries in Racine County. We have also seen great collaboration with Gateway Technical College, WRTP/Big Step, First Choice Pre-Apprentice and other entities; held town hall meetings throughout the community (with more outreach events planned); and have regularly met with local business representatives to discuss their needs.

  • Transportation: The Eastern Racine County Transportation Task Force convened earlier this year is making great progress in identifying solutions for two major challenges: reducing travel times between Interstate 94 and Downtown Racine, and efficiently moving workers to jobs.

Preliminary recommendations have focused on traffic signal coordination on major east-west arteries and expanding bus routes. We also plan to partner with Kenosha County to expand Highway KR and provide better access to the City of Racine.

  • Development: To prepare for future commercial and residential development opportunities, we engaged a multi-disciplinary consultant team to assist our communities with planning and development analyses.

With a desire to make Racine County a destination to work and live, this team has been charged with investigating opportunities to create a wide array of residential options, from apartments to condos to single- and multi-family neighborhoods – all of which will be in high demand in Racine County in the near future.

  • Law enforcement: I am working closely with Sheriff Christopher Schmaling and his team to make sure that law enforcement continues to have the resources they need to maintain peace and security and that our county grows in a safe and responsible way.

SO – in other words – Government is expanding and growing ever larger, more burdensome, costly, and complex – Along with: taxation, appointed apparatchiks, regulations,  laws, restrictions, and special privileges granted to those who are politically connected and have $$$ for campaign contributions! 

There is going to be a KA-BOOM alright in Racine County – but it will lead to a devastated tax-base, with a fleeing educated population who insist on The Rule of Law (which has been abandoned in Racine County) , while an uneducated horde invades to grab their “piece of the pie”, resulting in an abnormally high (and costly) incarceration rates (fortunately, Racine has a lot of open prison space) ,  deviant behavior,  stealing of people’s private property (by government decree & common criminals), destroying multi-generational Farms alongside an entire long established Community, loosening environmental protections (future costs to be determined) , permitting heavy metals water pollution (Future supplies of clean water will come from? TBD.) , instituting slave labor wages, providing taxpayer subsidies to multi-billionaire Corporations, and politician overreach.

But the above just describes the current situation…. while the Tax- Farming Politicians claim that  Foxconn and more Industrial Civilization  is the Band-Aid to fix all those problems – so Racine County residents simply need to be re-assured by lying Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave that it is so.

And in the aftermath….

Foxconn will provide very few jobs with (mostly) low wages (and temps) dependent upon government subsidizes,  and the “investment” will be financed by taxpaying  Residents – all on borrowed money from lenders which will have a first claim on taxpayers and require long term principle and interest payments. Foxconn will also be given “limited liability” for all the environmental damage they will create – and the locals will be stuck with all the long term bills and the environmental damage  after Foxconn has told SE WI  “SEE YA” , is gone, leaving the water supply of SE Wisconsin  heavily contaminated! What then? Import your drinking water from polluted and contaminated  Michigan?

WI Guv Scott Walker – The King of NO! Because he Knows NOTHING!

See the post:

Michigan FIRST! Wisconsin NEXT! as Michigan Declares Emergency Over City’s Water Contamination

Well, well, who woulda thunk it might happen….. especially in the Great Lakes Basin – where fresh water is plentiful, cheap, and used to remove Industrial and Human Waste from sight and smell. This waste, formerly fresh clean water supplied from a tap, is channeled to the sewer system which leads to  a temporary holding facility where it receives “treatment” with chemicals prior to being expelled back into large bodies of surface and underground water supplies in an effort to dilute the extreme contamination and pollutants!

THE PROCESS WORKS! (For the Politicians – who Levy Taxes) 

At least until the concentration of chemicals and contamination becomes too great to be fit for safe human consumption. Meanwhile, lying Politicians like Walker, Vos, Dickert, Mason, DeGroot and Delagrave  proclaim that the supply of  fresh water in the Great Lakes Basin is almost too cheap to meter! What happens when the process fails and the water becomes unsafe?

Michigan declares emergency over city’s water contamination

Michigan officials have declared a state of emergency after a city’s drinking water supply was found to be tainted with a harmful nonstick chemical.

 

Jay Hanson wasn’t lying when he wrote in his Overshoot Loop Thesis:

It’s impossible to know the details of how our rush to extinction will play itself out, but we do know that it is going to be hell for those who are unlucky to be alive at the time.

 

POLITICS: n 1: social relations involving authority or power.
We swim in “politics” like fish swim in water; it’s everywhere, but we can’t see it!

In fact, telling primates (human or otherwise) that their reasoning architectures evolved in large part to solve problems of dominance is a little like telling fish that their gills evolved in large part to solve the problem of oxygen intake from water. — Denise Dellarosa Cummins

I have been forced to review the key lessons that I have learned concerning human nature and collapse over the last 25 years. Our collective behavior is the quandary that must be overcome before anything can be done to mitigate the coming global social collapse. The single most-important lesson for me was that we cannot re-wire (literally, because thought is physical[1]) our basic political agendas through reading or discussion alone. Moreover, since our thoughts are subject to physical law, we do not have the free-will to either think or behave autonomously.

We are “political” animals from birth until death. Everything we do or say can be seen as part of lifelong political agendas. Despite decades of scientific warnings, we continue to destroy our life-support system because that behavior is part of our inherited (DNA, RNA, etc.) hard wiring. We use scientific warnings, like all inter-animal communications, for cementing group identity and for elevating one’s own status (politics).

Only physical hardship can force us to rewire our collective-political agendas. I am certainly not the first to make the observation, but now, after 25 years of study and debate, I am totally certain. The “net energy principle” guarantees that our global supply lines will collapse.

The rush to social collapse cannot be stopped no matter what is written or said. Humans have never been able to intentionally-avoid collapse because fundamental system-wide change is only possible after the collapse begins.

What about survivors? Within a couple of generations, all lessons learned from the collapse will be lost, and people will revert to genetic baselines. I wish it weren’t so, but all my experience screams “it’s hopeless.” Nevertheless, all we can do is the best we can and carry on…

Editors note;

The ultimate total economic and environmental collapse of SE Wisconsin is just a natural process which will ultimately  clear the land of all human inhabitants, restore the natural state, and thus be prepared for new arrivals in the far off future.

Continuing from Jay Hanson:

“Politics” is power used by social organisms to control others. Not only are human groups never alone, they cannot control their neighbors’ behavior. Each group must confront the real possibility that its neighbors will grow its numbers and attempt to take resources from them. Therefore, the best political tactic for groups to survive in such a milieu is not to live in ecological balance with slow growth, but to grow rapidly and be able to fend off and take resources from others[5].

The inevitable “overshoot” eventually leads to decreasing power attainable for the group with lower-ranking members suffering first. Low-rank members will form subgroups and coalitions to demand a greater share of power from higher-ranking individuals who will resist by forming their own coalitions to maintain it. Meanwhile, social conflict will intensify as available power continues to fall.

Eventually, members of the weakest group (high or low rank) are forced to “disperse.”[6] Those members of the weak group who do not disperse are killed,[7] enslaved, or in modern times imprisoned. By most estimates, 10 to 20 percent of all the people who lived in Stone-Age societies died at the hands of other humans.[8] The process of overshoot, followed by forced dispersal, may be seen as a sort of repetitive pumping action — a collective behavioral loop — that drove humans into every inhabitable niche of our planet.

Here is a synopsis of the behavioral loop described above:

Step 1. Individuals and groups evolved a bias to maximize fitness by maximizing power, which requires over-reproduction and/or over-consumption of natural resources (overshoot), whenever systemic constraints allow it. Differential power generation and accumulation result in a hierarchical group structure.

Step 2. Energy is always limited, so overshoot eventually leads to decreasing power available to the group, with lower-ranking members suffering first.

Step 3. Diminishing power availability creates divisive subgroups within the original group. Low-rank members will form subgroups and coalitions to demand a greater share of power from higher-ranking individuals, who will resist by forming their own coalitions to maintain power.

Step 4. Violent social strife eventually occurs among subgroups who demand a greater share of the remaining power.

Step 5. The weakest subgroups (high or low rank) are either forced to disperse to a new territory, are killed, enslaved, or imprisoned.

Step 6. Go back to step 1.

Don’t worry Racine County – Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave wouldn’t lie to you when he said Racine County would go ‘BOOM” – he just failed to affirm that the “Boom” would lead to utter collapse and destruction.

WI Guv Scott Walker(R) and Assembly Leader Robin Vos (R) Endorse Randy Bryce (D) For Congress!

 

One voice – one hand – so it should come as NO Surprise that via Proxy – City of Racine Mayor Cory Mason,  WI Governor Scott Walker and Assembly Leader Robin Vos, join together and endorse Randy Bryce…

Mason endorses Bryce for Congress

Along with WI Governor Scott Walker, Assembly Leader Robin Vos, Cory Mason and anything goes for Foxconn! If Laws can’t be changed to make the UNLAWFUL Foxconn Project Legal, then they shall VIOLATED and Authorities shall not question the numerous transgressions of the established Rule of Law which formerly applied.

From the JT:

RACINE — Racine Mayor Cory Mason announced Monday morning he is endorsing Randy Bryce for the Wisconsin 1st Congressional District seat.

Candidates seeking to replace Ryan must first win their primary on Aug. 14.

On the Democratic side, Bryce is going up against Janesville School Board member Cathy Myers, who has the support of Forward Kenosha, a progressive political activist group.

Myers recently filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission, alleging that Bryce used campaign funds to pay off old debts. …

And from that Complaint…

*WHOOPS*

From the JT:

Myers files FEC complaint against Bryce

RACINE COUNTY — Democratic congressional candidate Cathy Myers filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday against her primary opponent Randy Bryce and the Randy Bryce for Congress Campaign.

The complaint alleges that Bryce and his campaign violated the Federal Election Campaign Act by “converting campaign funds to Bryce’s personal use when at least $7,776.73 of the campaign’s funds were used to pay for personal legal fees and a judgment against Bryce for a personal debt he owed his former-girlfriend — 13 years before Bryce became a candidate.”

From JT Comments:

prof 

Leave it to Cory Mason to endorse someone with nine convictions for Congress! Is it any wonder the Democratic Party is so corrupt.

You all know Me
You all know Me 

A team donkey mayor endorsing the tinfoil cookie duster? What a surprise!…….NOT. I wonder what impressed cory about him? Perhaps the long rap sheet? Or how about being a deadbeat dad?

ordmm 

Best quote….LMAO……”Cory knows that the people in Racine deserve better representation then what they have been getting for the past 20 years,” Bryce said”….Oh yeah. That’s why the property owners in the City of Racine pay more twice the rate of most of those in Racine County. Yep, they is some sharp cookies in Racine!

 

And they all do it – so don’t be surprised….

BRYCE BUYS FAKE TWITTER FOLLOWERS, JOURNAL-SENTINEL CRITICIZES THE GOP

By James Wigderson for Wisconsin Media Check and Media Trackers

Randy Bryce, the Democratic challenger in the first Congressional District known for hanging with Hollywood celebrities, achieved more fame when the New York Times reported he purchased fake followers for his Twitter account. However, readers of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel could be forgiven for being under the false impression that the story was manufactured by Republicans.

The New York Times reported Saturday a company, Devumi, sells fake Twitter followers made up of automated accounts to puff up the purchasers’ Twitter account with retweets. Bryce was one of the purchasers.

“Randy Bryce, an ironworker seeking to unseat Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, purchased Devumi followers in 2015, when he was a blogger and labor activist,” the New York Times reported.

Instead of leading with the facts, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel instead focused on the Republican reaction in an article with the unusually long headline, “GOP atwitter over report that Paul Ryan challenger Randy Bryce bought fake Twitter followers.”

“The Republican side of Wisconsin’s political divide shouted Saturday that Democrat Randy Bryce was a phony after reading in The New York Times that the ironworker paid money a few years ago to gain Twitter followers,” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Don Behm wrote as the lede.

Yes, the Republican side “shouted” Bryce is a phony, rather than just going with a lede that referred to the fact that Bryce paid for the Twitter followers. Behm even helpfully adds that Bryce was only mentioned once in the article. He then quotes Bryce’s spokesperson defending her candidate saying that the campaign has not purchased any Twitter followers before quoting any Republicans.

Republicans were also, “atwitter” according to Behm who could not resist the pun:

“Here is the sentence that set the GOP atwitter: `Randy Bryce, an ironworker seeking to unseat Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, purchased Devumi followers in 2015, when he was a blogger and labor activist.’”

But, according to Behm, Republican enthusiasm for the issue was unfounded.

“The timing is before his campaign against Ryan,” Behm wrote. “Bryce, a U.S. Army veteran and union ironworker, is challenging Ryan’s bid for re-election Nov. 6 in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District.”

While Blue – Fisting City of Racine Mayor Cory Mason leads the opposition from Brooklyn, New York!

The Democrats’ Fake Mustache

 

There is Not a lick-spittle of difference between R’s and D’s and an endorsement of Randy Bryce by City of Racine Mayor Cory Mason which could only be approved by his Handlers at the State and National level – to include WI Governor Scott Walker, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, and US President Donald Trump. It is just more of the same -o -same -o bread and circus show for the long suffering  Resident’s of Racine County – SCAM-O-RAMA Racine County!
