A CHILD’S SAD MEMORIES,NOT FORGOTTEN —-CONTINUED

In January 31 1941, Cousin Domenic and his friend Frankie began sled riding piggyback on a homemade sled down the sidewalk of first street in the city of Campbell,Ohio where I grew up as a young boy. The sled was made of  old orange crates. The rungs of the sled had curtain rods nailed to the bottom to give it speed as it glided over the snow. The sled had handle grips that enabled the rider to shift his weight to help glide the sled. It had no moving parts and could not make sharp turns to the left or right such as one made in a factory.

Making your own sled was a common practice, it, was a simple task and easy to do.  Many children unable to afford store bought sleds made their own.  I followed behind Domenic & Frankie on my new sled as we rode down the hill, however before I reached the bottom; I turned off the sidewalk and stopped on First Street, which had been cleared of snow; I knew the sharp turn at the corner of the wall was difficult and dangerous. even with a store bought sled.

As Domenic’s sled approached the bottom of the hill, his friend Frankie rolled off on to the sidewalk when he realized they could not make the sharp turn around the corner.  Domenic, traveling too fast and unable to turn the corner, continued straight into the highway. I couldn’t believe my eyes when my sled came to a stop and I stood up. Domenic was lying in the middle of the highway; his body crushed beyond recognition. I began to cry and scream as I ran toward the corner where this horrifying sight remains with me to this day.  

Cousin Domenic died under the wheels of a Semi-trailer truck loaded with steel. I recall that day very well as I stood there with him and watched as he gave his toy handcuffs to a friend in exchange for the homemade sled that would take him to his death a few minutes later.

The poor truck driver was in shock as he sat in his truck covering his face with his hands. When he finally  got out of the truck, he fell to his knees and began crying. The children began screaming when they watched this tragic event take place.

We would never see or play with Domenic again. It was a day we would all remember for the rest of our lives. The teacher knowing we were cousins asked if I would walk Domenic’s younger brother Frankie, home. Frankie was a year older than I  and we attended school together; he had also watched this terrible accident  happen  

The teachers ushered us into the classrooms and asked to bow our heads in prayer.  Religion was a very important part of the American culture and the right thing to do. I could see the sadness on their little faces, as silence covered the classroom.

Frankie’s dad Bruno and my father Anthony were brothers; I knew how his dad would react when hearing about Domenic’s death.. He was a firm old-fashioned Italian as was my dad, and would show frustration and use profanity rather than cry and show weakness. Later when alone, he world pour his heart out. I knew how upset he would be and was afraid to go inside the house when Frankie told him of the accident. 

My mother was horrified when she heard of Domenic’s death. She was grocery shopping just a few blocks from our home when she heard the news that one of the lentini boys had died in an accident, She began screaming and dropped her groceries’ as she ran from the store.  My brother’s name is also Domenic and our last name is the same. We were often mistaken for brothers.

Each time I visited my cousin’s home, I saw Domenic’s picture hanging on the wall and it reminded me of that grief-stricken winter day.     The site of the accident being visible from our front porch caused much sadness for our family. We moved away from the school shortly after.

      Winter had passed and school closed  for summer vacation. The death of Domenic,  although not forgotten became something of the past. The great depression continued, as families struggled to survive with the little income they could earn

A NIGHT OF VIOLENCE, SUSPENSE AND ROBBERY

THE SILK STOCKING BANDITShttp://www.youngstownchronicles.com/a-night-of-intriguing-violence/


This is an interesting story of a city known for its large steel mills and population diversity. It’s a place where immigrants of all nationalities settled at the turn of the 19th century; bringing their cultural talents and ideas with them to fulfill their dreams of making a new life for their families.—- The dignity of this once proud valley was ruined when outside interests such as crime syndicates and mob infiltration into politics took advantage of the valley’s prosperity. Political corruption and violent crime in the valley became a way of life for over 70 years. This regrettably overshadowed the genuine qualities the valley had established during the early days of its growth

Mob Stories

.
During the 1950s into the 1990s, Youngstown made headlines on newspapers all over the country, reporting the violence and unsolved bombings caused by the Cleveland and Pittsburgh gang wars. The city would soon become known as “Boom Town and Murder Town USA” as one Mob Syndicate after another attempted to control the various rackets that took in millions of dollars. Unfortunately, like many large cities, greed, mob influence and political corruption made Youngstown, One of the most violent crime infected cities in the nation. The prosperity created by the steel mills in the Mahoning Valley had all the necessary ingredients for crime syndicates to take advantage of and control local government officials. Gambling, prostitution and policy numbers were illegal operations that operated openly without police interference.
Starting in the early 1930s, one of the major sources of income for the mob was banking policy numbers, better known as the Bug Number, I can still recall as a young boy, when people, such as the postmen, various delivery men and even young paper boys would pick up numbers (they were called runners) from people wanting to take a chance and bet pennies to dollars hoping to be a winner. The payoff was $6.00 for each .01 cent bet or $600.00 for a $1.00. Hourly wages were very low and winning a few dollars for a penny provided funds for many items such as groceries and shoes and clothes.
The bug runners worked for the bank and collected money from various places located throughout the valley. The pickup locations were grocery stores, liquor bars and businesses where people frequently gathered. The money was then turned into a central clearing house called the numbers bank, which was controlled by the mob. Individuals running the banks sorted the numbers, counted the money and ultimately distributed it to the daily winners at the end of the day. The daily receipts turned out to be in the thousands of dollars. The winning number was picked using figures from the daily Stock Market results after it closed for the day.
 Gambling was another popular activity that took in money for the mob. This was done under the appearance of Stag Parties, which were usually held at local clubs on weekends, in the Mahoning Valley. They were sponsored by various organizations, of which a number of them were legitimate while others provided a method to make money to bribe the politicians     Gamblers from as far as Cleveland and other surrounding areas attended the stags. A permit was required to sell tickets for all political rallies and other supposedly benevolent organizations.  The process was simply a method of control by local law enforcement to root out those who failed to pay off the officials running the city and county. It also helped to monitor income that would be distributed among the judges and others involved including the police
      It was late in the evening; I had won some money while  gambling for a couple of hours and decided it was time to leave. As I started toward the stairway, the sound of gunshot rang out from upstairs; the room became deathly quiet. I stood still for a moment trying to gather my senses when I noticed everyone scrambling to hide their money. It was then I realized, that a robbery was about to take place. I thought to myself, what the hell did I get into, here I am with, a pocket full of money and no way out of the basement. Foolishly thinking I would be  safe I crawled under the dice table and put some of my winnings into a empty paper cup laying on the floor; I   than turned it upside down on the  floorboards covering the concrete floor  around dice table and anxiously waited.
Seconds had passed; I looked up from under the table and saw someone with a silk stocking covering his face and  standing at the top of the stairway . In front of him was a man lying on his back clutching  his leg as though  in pain.  Suddenly the bandit began kicking him until he rolled down the steps and hit the floor next to the dice table. I could see it was one of the door attendants with his pants  soaked with blood. Next to him stood one of the bandits waving a gun and yelling from the top of his lungs , all right you Motherf—kers, empty your pockets on the table and take your clothes off; hurry up, make it fast, he yelled  as he dragged the attendant across the floor to he center of the room. Another of the bandits searched the basement to make sure all the gamblers were within site, unfortunately he  found someone  hiding in the bathroom and ruthlessly pistol whipped him.  The man who was now bleeding from a large gash on his face, was then pushed to the floor alongside the helpless door attendant. The bandits hurriedly gathered their loot and left.
It would be some 30 years later  after returning  to Youngstown, that  I learned who  robbed us that  night of the  stag. It appears one of them was a hit-man by the name of Ray Ferritto from Eire Pennsylvania.   Ferritto was arrested in 1980 for killing Danny Green, the Irish gangster   from a Cleveland mob. Ferritto hearing the Mafia had put  a contract out on him ,went into the Witness  Protection program.    He provided information that broke up the Cleveland Syndicate   and send more than 15 men to prison. He left the protection program after a year and told the FBI that  if the Mafia wanted him they can come and get him. He died in 2004 of natural causes. The mob never came to get him.

THE 1937 LITTLE STEEL STRIKE IN THE MAHONING VALLEY

Anthony Lentini

ANTHONY LENTINI

IN MEMORY TO MY FATHER ON THIS 80TH YEAR OF HIS DEATH

In the 1937, steel workers in the Mahoning Valley’s went on strike; the newspaper called it the “Little Steel Strike” The major issues at the bargaining table were wages, pensions, and safe working conditions. When the strike shut down the local steel mills, picket lines began to appear, violence erupted causing at least two people to die, and over forty workers were injured.  Ohio National Guard and State Police were called in to protect many of the Steel workers who crossed the picket lines to enter the mills..  During the Great Depreciation, people living in the cities along the Mahoning River suffered severely from the lost of thousands of dollars in wages. In return, the steel unions had become progressively stronger and soon became the precursor to the United Steel Workers of America.

One day during “The little Steel Strike,” My father Anthony Lentini began driving from our farm in to the city of Youngstown. He was to meet with friends and talk about the ongoing steel strike.  He was not aware that I was in the back seat lying on the floor covered with a potato sack. I was four years old at the time and knew he wouldn’t let me go with him because of the violence on the picket lines that had killed a couple of workers and injured many more. As he drove down the country road he noticed the sack moving and without saying a word, he turned the car around and drove back home. I thought I was going to catch the dickens but instead, after a few words of wisdom; he gave me a hug and sent me into the house,

There was always something interesting happening on our farm , I recall dad going into the barn one afternoon and suddenly, our dog came running out, yelping and barking, close behind him was dad swearing and swinging a shovel; he was trying to hit the dog but it ran to fast. I couldn’t understand what had happened ,because dad loved the dog and it was always by his side. I ask mom what was wrong and she said dad couldn’t figure out why he was not getting as much milk as he normally did. until he caught the dog sucking milk from the cow’s teats. Dad had an awful temper ,but a couple of days later he and his dog were friends again.

Spring was here and dad was repairing a fence to keep our cow from running loose. It began to rain and mom made me go into the house while, Dad continued working in the rain. A few days later dad became sick with pneumonia. I still can see him sitting near the potbelly stove in the center of our small farmhouse with his feet in warm water and a blanket around his shoulders. He sat there shivering and sipping a glass of wine mother had given him. A week later the doctor realizing dad wasn’t getting any better called for an ambulance to take him to the hospital. That was the last time we saw dad alive. He died on May 31 1938 at he age of 42.I recall that day very well when my uncle held me up to kiss dad goodby before they closed his coffin.

I remember many events of my youth but none as sad   as the  death of my father in 1938, the loss of our family farm during the great depression and  the unfortunate memory  of watching my cousin Domenic  die  under wheels of a truck loaded with steel while sled riding in January 1941.

THE INTERNET NETWORK ,CAUSES OF CRIME INTERNET RAGE TURNS TO MURDER IN TRUMBULL COUNTY

Judge Ronald Rice of Trumbull County Common Pleas Court sentenced Nasser Hamad to life in prison with parole eligibility after 36 years last week . He was charged in the shooting deaths of two at Hendrickson’s  Howland home in February.

When giving out the sentence, Judge Rice noted the “juvenile exchange “ on social media that led to to the fatal confrontation.It is unfortunate that after 47 years of dedicating your life to your family ,you allowed such foolishness to reduce you to such a state, the judge said.” Your severe overreaction to the melee from which you escaped is what brought you to this point in life and this courtroom today. 

Past is prolog: Audio recordings of a protection- order hearing   on Oct.5,2016 of  former  business pardner, Chris Sullivan   shows the aggressive and punitive way Hamad, then 47 handled himself.  Magistrate Patrick McCarthy approved a five year protection order against Hamad to have no contact with Chris Sullivan. McCarty stated Hamad acted like a 13 year old who wants to get into fights with somebody who does things he doesn’t like.

Despite McCarthy’s words Hamad became embroiled in a dispute with Brian Hendrickson and his sons Bryce 19 and Dylan 16 . The Hendrickson dispute came to a broil Nov 6 2016 . it was over Tracy Hendrickson leaving her husband in late October and moving in with Hamad in February.

Thirteen months later Nasser Hamad with his Childish attitude and inability to make rational decisions was unable to get passed the unfortunate confrontation  that occurred at his house. He claimed he noticed a smirk on the face of one of the men and  tackled him to the ground. The deadly gunfire followed,with Hamad getting a gun from his house and shooting at the men  as they prepared to leave, he then went back into the house and reloaded his gun and  continued shooting at the men.

Bryce and Hamad posted over 80 messages on Facebook to each other. The post from each side were filled with vulgar language and threats. The resulting gunfire killed Haber and Williams and injured Trent Vokes and Bryce Hendrickson,  cousins of Hendrickson.  Shively had a grazing wound to his back.

There is more to this story which led up to the final out come of three families involved in a sad ending ,that left three people injured and two dead.

 

TRAITS OF AN OF AN HONORABLE MAN

Honor is the quality that inspire a man to be to have high principles and and the reason to perform the right and just ways to live his life. Honesty is inspired by outside influences and family teachings while honor is one of the personal qualities for building manhood . It is essential to places of trust and confidence in the business world.

Loyalty is one of the most desirable qualities to be found in a individual, Our first loyalty above all is loyalty to God ,country, to our homes and to our self-respect.   These qualities can never conflict with each other if we are thinking along  just and  honest lines. Our loyalty also belongs to our loved ones and our communities; last but not least to the whole of mankind.

Loyalty does not condone wrongdoing or attempt to minimize its punishment.Loyalty remains a friendly and helpful hand to adversity or time of trouble, regardless of the individual’s own part in bringing about such situations.  Loyalty to principals should only change when when higher or better principles are available as substitutes . 

One should be sincerely loyal to his employers and give them more then a fair return for compensation received. Every business institution must make a profit on each employee to justify his retention, for it is the profit made by employers that alone justify  continuing business.

 Common sense is essential in all walks of life , in the home, in the family ,in the community, in dealing with our friends and   in social ,political and business activities.Common sense can probably best explained by saying it means giving fair play and a square deal to everybody,including yourself.  

Courage is a quality that enables men to willingly give up their livers for things they know to be right. There are three kinds,moral ,mental,and physical courage. Physical courage is desirable as physical fear makes happiness impossible, but mental and moral courage are far more important.Mental courage has to do with wisdom and moral courage has to do with right and wrong and is covered by ethical standards.

These statements are taken from a book called “CODE OF ETHICS” written by H.B.MONJAR for the MANTLE CLUB . The articles start in 1934 and continue through 1938.

FOUR FREEDOMS OF THE WORLD

On January 6.1941 president Franklin D. Roosevelt  delivered an address known as “Four Freedoms speech” where he proposed that there were four freedoms that everyone in the world should have. The address was part of  the State of the Union Address to Congress, delivered during World War II(but  before America had entered the conflict) The speech urged Congress (and America)join the war to defeat the Axis powers and work towards universal freedom. There are some great newspaper articals on the speech and it’s influence.

 Roosevelt speech to Congress focused on the war in Europe, eschewing the isolationist polices of the past. The Nevada State journal printed  the completed text of the speech on January 7, 1941. The ” Four freedoms ” section reads, “In the future days , which we seek to make secure , we look forward to a world to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.

  •       The first is freedom of speech and expression–everywhere in the world.
  •       The second is freedom of every person to  worship god in his own way every where in the world.
  •      The third  freedom from want–which translated into world terms,means  economic understanding  which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants everywhere in the world
  •     The forth is freedom from fear, translated into world terms, a world wide reduction of armaments  to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to comment an act of physical aggression against any neighbor– anywhere in the world.

 Artist Norman Rockwell created four paintings inspired by the speech in 1943 ,each featured in the Saturday Evening Post and then used in the U.S. Treasury to sell war bonds. The Mansfield news journal had this to say this to say about the paintings. ” I’ve seen four dreams — I’ve heard four bugle calls.   Actually they are pictures  painted by Norman Rockwell with ‘interpretations’ written by Booth Tarkington, Will Durant,Carlos Bulosan and Stephen Benet.  

Millions of copies were released under the sponsorship of the Office of War Information. The  four paintings symbolize what President Roosevelt and  Prime Minister Churchill summarized as our greatest rights.

First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt  used the four freedoms in her push for a declarations of Human rights, which was passed on December 10,1948. The Altoona,   Mirror on December 11,1948 stated ; The universal declaration of human rights was hailed as a potential international magna charta   for millions of men, women,and children throughout the world.

He was on the Marine’s boxing team and after his Military duty fought  in the Knights of Columbus Golden Gloves tour.

After a few pro fights in Youngstown,his father encouraged him to quit boxing. Pat then opened a very successful night spot in Columbus . During  the early years of the Boathouse, a recording company promoter heard about the “singing bar-tender “and decided to have a listen. He heard Pat sing with with the  Don Haines Quartet and ask Pat to cut a country  record in Nashville. ,  The first single record “pick me up on your way down,”sold a million copies worldwide,made it to the top of country charts and crossed over to in to pop charts . In the next several months it was followed by two more to sellers. “Keys in the mailbox”and “Heartaches by the Numbers”which stayed on the record charts foe 27 weeks.

The 1960s were a glorious time for Pat. He never gave up his love of boxing and in the 1980s returned as a trainer and manger for pro fighter, Jeff Jordan and many others. He hosted numinous boxing  matches in Columbus and his fighter fought all over the world.  He was also the first to promote a female Tough-women contest.

BILLY CONN , WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
 
In May 1941 Conn gave up his world Light Heavy Weight  title to challenge Joe Louis . Conn attempted to become the first World World light Heavy weight  in boxing history to win the Title when he and Louis met on this year. The fight became apart of fight  history  creditably  so with out Conn going up in weight.  Conn had a secure lead on the score cards leading to round 13. According to many experts and fans who watched the fight, Conn  was outmaneuvering  Louis up to that point. In a move that Conn would regret for the rest of his life,he tried to go for a knockout in round 13 and instead wound up losing the fight, by knockout in the same round himself
 
Ten minutes after the fight , Conn told reporters. “I lost my head and a million bucks  When asked by reporters why he went for the knockout. Conn replied to reporters,famously, What”s the use of being Irish if can’t be thick . Later he would joke with Joe Louis , Why wouldn’t you let me hold the title for for a year or so? to which the Bomber responded  ,You had the title for twelve rounds and you couldn’t keep it.
 
In 1942, Conn beat Tony Zale and had an exhibition with Lois.World war II was at its high, and both Conn and Louis were called to serve in the Army. Conn went to war and was away fro the ring until146. By then the  public was calling for a rematch him and still Heavyweight champion Louis.
This happened on June 19,1946,Conn returned into the ring ,right straight into a Heavy weight champion bout. Before the fight, it was suggested to Louis that Conn might outpoint him because of his hand and foot speed .   In a line to be remembered Louis replied,He can run but he can’t hide.
 

The fight ,at Yankee Stadium ,was was the first televised Heavy wight  championship bout ever and  146,ooo people watched it on TV, also setting a record for the most seen  world Heavyweight bout in History. Most people who saw it agreed that both Conn and Louis’s abilities  had eroded with time spent serving in the Armed forced, but Louis was able to retain the crown by a knock out in round eight. On Dec. 10,1948 he and Louis met inside the ring for the last time in a public exhibition in Chicago. Conn would never climb into a ring to be a fighter again.

ABUSE OF POWER AND EFFECTIVE RESULTS

1f1fa-1f1f8

A recent video of a nurse being arrested in the emergency room of a Utah hospital  is one of the many reasons why Americans are protesting the abuse and  misuse of police procedures.    While a patient lay in bed in serious condition from a automobile accident,  a very zealous  policeman decided that it was extremely  important to draw blood from the victim even though he had not been arrested and was unable to consent to the demand.

The E.R.nurse, defending the patient’s rights,  politely showed the officer   a written document of hospital blood drawing procedures used  nation wide. The document pertained to the drawing of blood  with out a warrant or consent of the patient.  The officer argued with her while she was on speaker phone with her supervisor who proceeded to explain  to  the officer that he was making a bad mistake in what he was trying to do. As the innocent  nurse spoke,  the officer overpowered her and physically abused her by placing her in hand cuffs; he then manhandled her while arresting and  placing her in a police vehicle with out regards to her rights.

“All he had to do was request the  results of a blood sample taken form the nurses records when the patient was admitted.”

 Incidents like this have caused  nation wide protests against police brutality and abuse of power. This could have been avoided by a mature person using  common sense and  good judgement.   The  officer rightfully was  fired for his stupid actions. In my opinion  he should have been given a fine and made an example for others who think that they can abuse the powers given to them.

 

Protesting is our American right and should not be denied but, using the flag is not an ethical and  proper way to protest.A gifted individual  who has made millions of dollars and lived the American dream, has used an issue (slavery), that happened  over 200 years ago to make a protest .  His stupid actions and desire to make a point which he is far removed, has brought attention  to the world. He has shamed out country  and brought embarrassment by showing disrespect to our servicemen who fought and lost their lives defending America and our flag.  What was he thinking.?

 TO BE CONTINUED:part II

“Allegations such as those contained in the incitements must be treated seriously and investigated thoroughly. This investigation   involves  several offices. I want to thank the Auditor of state and officials in Mahoning County for their efforts” said Attorney General Mike De Wine.

What our investigation found is very disturbing Auditor Dave Yost said. The indictment  alleges Marchionda spent grants and funds received from Youngstown  water  and wastewater department . Also funds and loans from the city in addition to money from state and federal to develop the projects.

He is is accused of improperly spending $ 600,000 from city funds on personal debts, and to pay costs unrelated to the purpose for which they were provided.Marchionda provided false billing records to city of Youngstown officials A company controlled by Marchionda received $1.2 million from the city’s water and wastewater funds and then sent $1 million back to the city to buy a fire station on Madison Ave.on the North Side for the project.

The million dollars was” placed into the genera Fund of the city of Youngstown in violation of Ohio Law under the direction of  David Bozanich” the indictment reads. Marchionda took remaining $200,00 and transferred $70,000 to a company he owned and than transferred to himself  to pay for personal expenses such as the Poland swum club,personal bounces- checks fees. this include many other personal debts and and investments.

The funds were not spent on water or sewer related issues. McNally said city council reviewed and approved the fire station deal in 2009,and the board of control- the Mayor ,Law Director and finance director.determined it to be appropriate.

The city also loaned $ 2 million to US Campus Suites that was to be solely used for the project. The indictment contends Marchionda used it for the personal purposes and not permitted by the loan agreement with the city of Youngstown.

That trend continued with float loans received by other LLC proprieties. Typically when monies were deposited into the accounts (the companies than transferred by phone call,wire or email by Dominic Marchionda to Rubino Construction Inc. who then distributed funds for unlawful purposes transferring hundreds of thousands of dollars back to Marchionda.

The city in 2011 gave $350,00o in water and wastewater funds went to a company owned by Marchionda that developed Eire Terminal and $220,000 two years later for improvement work at the property.. The list of fraud allocations go on and on.

The indictment also accuses Marchoinda of theft related to his improperly taking between $ 1,000 and $ 7,5000 from the Rich Center for Autism This is corruption at its best. the citizens of Youngstown have been deceived for years and fail to complain..When we thought the mob was gone, a new enterprise took its place; Its called THE LOCAL POLITICIANS.

General Bill Gann, USAF, (Ret) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn’t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played. The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171…

During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, “Stand and Face It”.

Senator Obama replied :

“As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides.” “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression…” “The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing.”

Obama continued: “The National Anthem should be ‘swapped’ for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing’. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as ‘redesign’ our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails – – – perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ……”

When I Become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past”.

“Of course now, I have found myself about to become The President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside . I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country’s First black  Family.Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America .”

Yes, you read it right. This Muslim bastard has deceived the American people by using Slavery of the black people as an example. He is not black but instead part Kenyan,white and and other mixtures. He was put in office with George Soros money and the New World Order/

EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES OF

AMERICA NEEDS TO READ THIS, SO KEEP IT GOING!!

SAVE AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!

THE COMMUNISTS WHO RAN OUR COUNTRY

These numbers help explain why these last eight years were disastrous for the USA. I read the last item and then look at Trump’s Cabinet. No wonder Washington, DC is in a turmoil. Trump’s picks are bosses who expect their employees to work. These are Eye Opening Numbers. This is what bothers a lot of people about Trump. He won’t accept a can’t do attitude, or inexperienced, incompetent performance. He will get results; it just might not be smooth or pretty.

Here are some amazing stats: Make sure you read to the bottom. An eye opener!

1. These 10 States now have more people on welfare than they do employed!

California
New Mexico
Mississippi
Alabama
Illinois
Kentucky
Ohio
New York
Maine, and
South Carolina

2. Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support. What’s the problem with that much support?  Well the average household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day.

To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for 40 hour week, while the average job pays $24.00 an hour.

3. Check the last set of statistics!!

The percentage of each past president’s cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is: A real-life business not a government job.

Here are the percentages:

38% T. Roosevelt
40% Taft
52% Wilson
49% Harding
48% Coolidge
42% Hoover
50% F. D. Roosevelt
50% Truman
57% Eisenhower
30% Kennedy
47% Johnson
53% Nixon
42% Ford
32% Carter
56% Reagan
51% GH Bush
39% Clinton
55% GW Bush
8% Obama
90% Trump
This helps explain the bias, if not the incompetence, of the last administration: ONLY 8% of them have ever worked in private business! naturally they are communists  just like Obama
That’s right! Only eight percent – the least, by far of the last 19 presidents! And these commie scum tried to tell our corporations how to run their businesses? How could Obama, president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he’s never worked for one? he has been taking other peoples money all his life   a true commie punk… Or about jobs when he has never really had one? And, when it’s the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers? They’ve spent most of their time in academia, government, and/or non-profit jobs or as “community organizers.” Probably a good idea to pass this on, because we’ll NEVER see these facts in the main stream media, or from the alphabet

EX- COMMUNIST PRESIDENT OBAMA STAYS IN PUBLIC TO DESTROY AMERICA

Former President Obama’s communist affiliations, began as a child, and continued well into his adulthood and because of the good work of Joel Gilbert  who discovered that Obama was active with a Weathermen Underground  support group known as The May 19th Communist Organization, in New York. Perhaps, this is why the founder of the Weathermen, Bill Ayers, was visiting the White House and Obama on a frequent basis. And speaking of Ayers and his convicted felon wife, Bernardine Dorne, adding more fuel to this communist fire, it is interesting to note that both Senior White House Advisors, David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett were both Weatherman Underground “Red Diaper Babies, in which they were the sons and daughters of well-to-do parents who desired communism and lived out their dreams through their children’s revolutionary activities. Other notable red-diaper babies also include such notables as Rahm Emanuel and Eric Holder. Jarrett’s situation is particularly interesting in that her family and the Ayers family have been multi-generational friends which also included a marriage between the two families. Much of the Obama administration is a nest of communists and this should serve to gravely concern every American citizen. It was the convicted felons, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorne who launched State Senatorial candidate Obama’s political career from their Hyde Park, IL. living room according to the late Larry Grathwohl a former FBI undercover operative who penetrated the Weathermen Underground. Hollywood could not write a movie this good, with this much intrigue.

VALERIE JARRETT HAS MOVED INTO OBAMA’S WASHINGTON DC RESIDENCE TO FURTHER FACILITATE THE DEEP STATE OVERTHROW OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT. THE COUP IS LED BY OBAMA AND HIS  ORGANIZATION. HOLDER AND ALL THE OTHERS ARE LEADING THIS COMMUNIST REVOLUTION AGAINST TRUMP. HOLDER IS NOW LEADING CALEXIT (THE TREASONOUS WITHDRAWAL OF CALIFORNIA FROM THE UNION WHICH WILL LEAD TO THE BREAKUP OF THE UNITED STATES).

 

Obama’s Communist Background

Frank Chapman, Obama’s real father (see Joel Gilbert’s investigation), a communist activist and a member of the communist front group known as the World Peace Council. Chapman clearly used the term “mole” to describe Obama. He said Obama’s political climb and subsequent  success in the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries was “a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle.” Chapman further stated that, “Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary ‘mole,’ not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through. “The Communist Party USA backs Obama to the hilt.” It is clear that Obama is their man! Obama ws Stalin 2.0.

Fox News Reporter, Lou Dobbs Exposes Obama’s Shadow Government On Air

Knock me over with a feather, Lou Dobbs exposes Obama’s construction of a shadow government. The shadow government has one purpose, namely, the removal and Trump from office and the return of Obama to power. Yes, Obama has transposed himself from King George to George Washington. This  possibility is still alive today.

Conclusion

At the heart of the plot to destroy America is the CALEXIT movement on the West Coast and Obama’s OF A on the East Coast.

As a reminder, I exposed just such a plot in a previous article. The future is now, the revolution, the communist revolution has begun in earnest.

There is a new group that is coming into front and center and it is called Antifa. This is a George Soros creation which stands long side moveon.org, which has infiltrated the State of Jefferson movement and, the agitator group known as Black Lives Matter and a new terrorist group, who is just as deadly as the Muslim Brotherhood. This group is known as Antifa. I am shocked that many people are not aware of Antifa. In the next installment in this series, Antifa will be exposed for the marxist/communist subversive group that it is.

America keeps getting hit with wave after wave of subversive groups all designed to take down our country. Also, what most people do not understand, is that they are are succeeding. Our country’s fate is hanging by a thread, but the new terrorist groups of Move-on.org, BLM and Antifa are merely an extension of the Weatherman Underground, the Muslim Brotherhood and the American Communist Party. They are all designed to do one thing, rob you of your freedom and your very lives.

It is time to wake-up America, it is going to be a bumpy ride!
