Is Brecksville’s Comrade Petsche headed to prison For Ethics Violations?


Comrade Petsche and his hit Squad ….

A simplified time line (see previous posts here for the complete time line) of the now recognized criminal activities of Comrade Petsche:

Aug. 20, 2019: At a council meeting, Matty announces that the city has been served with a subpoena related to a “criminal investigation” of USA Roofing and its contracts for municipal jobs. Petsche said there is no criminal investigation, and to say so is to “slander my good name.”

Sept. 3, 2019: Council discusses possibly impeaching Petsche for allegedly violating state code and the city charter, due to USA Roofing’s contracts for city work.

Sept. 17, 2019: Councilwoman Kim Veras asks Petsche to resign for his sake and the sake of the city. Petsche reads a statement, saying council is overreacting by considering impeachment. Council gives Petsche’s attorney until Sept. 25 to respond to Veras’ request that Petsche resign.

Sept. 25, 2019: Petsche’s attorney, Peter Pattakos, says Petsche will not resign and will fight any attempt to remove him from office. Pattakos says Petsche did nothing wrong.

Oct. 15, 2019: Brecksville’s city council was told at the end of normal business that Council person Jack Petsche’s  case with the state ethics committee had been decided and send to the Cuyahoga county prosecutor for action.

 

The following Image was taken by me while Comrade Petsche was being informed of the result of the states ethics committee review.

In summary this is what the council was told at the meeting last night (October 15, 2019 at around 2030).

1) The Ohio State Bar Association Ethics Committee found that Comrade Petsche had in fact committed ethics violations.

2) The Ethics Committee had also determined that of the three options available to them they selected the most serious of the three. Which were in order of least to worst: One, reprimand, Two negotiated settlement and, Three, criminal referral.

3) The details are not available since this is now a criminal investigation and its in the hands of the County prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley.

Comrade Petsche is sadly an extremely arrogant person that is full of himself, as we use to say,  since from the beginning of this unfortunate situation it was always in Comrade Petsche’s power to resolve the situation and prevent this from happening to him. But the radial progressive wing of the Democrat party has turned into hard core Marxists and they are all very sure of themselves to the point that that can’t even conceive that they have done anything wrong.  They are after all the “Best and the Brightest” and above the common man/woman. Unfortunately, being the “Best and the Brightest” doesn’t mean that you are right, in fact  it can also mean that you are blind to the realities of society and the world we live in.

Remember it was the “Best and the Brightest” that gave us Vietnam and 58,272 American combat deaths and 303,644 wounded in action many of those died later from PTSD! 

Comrade Petsche must have known that what he did was wrong but never-the-less he has continued to unjustly malign one of the best mayors ever in Cuyahoga county — see this recent example from his social media account below. Also just as a reminder, Comrade Petsche said at one of the previous Council discussion over his reprehensible conduct that if the Ethics committee ruled against him he would resign from Council.  Well last night he found out that they did rule against him but he did not resign his position.  So he is not a man of his word either! 

This post is so full of arrogance that its actually embarrassing. Would you really want this person or the rest of his squad anywhere near the rains of power in one of the best run cities in the State?

Civilization Dies When One Class Turns Against Another


China is NOT on board with this nonsense of climate change caused by humans. The South China Morning Post has reported that their scientists have traced their civilization and its rise and fall to the energy output of the sun. Simply put, when the climate warms, civilization flourishes. When it turns cold, we isolate ourselves and civilization contracts.

China will take up the crown of the financial capital of the world because the West is just going insane with socialism and using climate as the excuse to seize power and wealth.

I have stated many times that when it is beneficial to come together, civilization expands because there is a synergy that rises that is greater than the sum of the parts. When civilization becomes corrupt and it feeds upon one class for the benefit of another, the very PURPOSE of coming together no longer makes sense and you witness this throughout separatists movements, revolutions, and civil war.

Blizzard Bans Blitzchung: Can China Stand Against a World of (Virtual) Warriors?

Esports gamer Chung Ng Wai, who goes by Blitzchung, wears a gas mask and goggles and ends an interview saying “Liberate Hong Kong: Revolution of our times.” Hearthstone tournament sponsor Blizzard Entertainment bans him for a year and strips him of $10,000 in 2019 winnings. Is this just a case of an American company enforcing its legal contract and protecting its reputation? Or did parent company Activision Blizzard cave to minor investor Tencent Holdings Ltd., a massive Chinese conglomerate? Will global corporations ever stand up to the communist Chinese government and allow free speech? Can China stand against a world of (virtual) warriors who #BoycottBlizzard ?

The Big Yang Theory: Study Shows $500/Month Free Money Makes People Happy


148K subscribers

First results from a universal basic income (UBI) study in Stockton, California, shows that free money makes people happy, and that they spend most of it on basic needs like food and utilities, rather than on drugs, alcohol or gambling. Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs wants his $500 per month stipend experiment done statewide. Do these early results in a small-scale study bolster Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s White House run as he campaigns on a nationwide $1000 per month UBI plan? If you listen to the news and ask questions that reporters seem to ignore… If you wonder why the other side of the argument never seems to get equal representation… If it seems to you that the mainstream media live in a bubble (or on another planet)… If your ideas have stood the test of time, your principles remained steady throughout history, and you think that civility and rational thought should suffuse our public discourse, then you’re the kind of person who should consider joining us as a Member.

Super Camera Can Find You in a Crowd – No Place to Hide


If you thought you could hide, you will soon need a face transplant to do so. Chinese scientists at the Fudan University  and Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics, have developed a 500MP cloud-connected “super camera” that can reportedly pick out facial details of an individual person among thousands in a crowded stadium.

Simply put, there is no place to hide.

Mollie Hemingway | Political Divide in America

Mollie Hemingway spoke on October 3, 2019 during the 175th Anniversary Celebration. Hillsdale College is an independent institution of higher learning founded in 1844 by men and women “grateful to God for the inestimable blessings” resulting from civil and religious liberty and “believing that the diffusion of learning is essential to the perpetuity of these blessings.” It pursues the stated object of the founders: “to furnish all persons who wish, irrespective of nation, color, or sex, a literary, scientific, [and] theological education” outstanding among American colleges “and to combine with this such moral and social instruction as will best develop the minds and improve the hearts of its pupils.” As a nonsectarian Christian institution, Hillsdale College maintains “by precept and example” the immemorial teachings and practices of the Christian faith. The College also considers itself a trustee of our Western philosophical and theological inheritance tracing to Athens and Jerusalem, a heritage finding its clearest expression in the American experiment of self-government under law. By training the young in the liberal arts, Hillsdale College prepares students to become leaders worthy of that legacy. By encouraging the scholarship of its faculty, it contributes to the preservation of that legacy for future generations. By publicly defending that legacy, it enlists the aid of other friends of free civilization and thus secures the conditions of its own survival and independence.

NBA Bows to Communist China: Sorry Rockets GM Stood for Hong Kong Freedom

The National Basketball Association (NBA) has a reputation for allowing players to speak out on issues of justice and discrimination. Some call it ‘the woke league’. However, when Houston Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey tweeted support for the Hong Kong democracy movement, his owner, some players, and his league, rebuked him and rejected his statement. Rockets player James Harden proclaimed love for China. After a bit of behind the scenes Chinese re-education, Morey, apologized that he ‘got woke’ for freedom, . Bill Whittle says the NBA reaction is the perfect epitaph for the USA tombstone. Bill Whittle Now with Scott Ott comes five times each week thank to the Members who fund it.

We simply could not operate that way.” (…at least not if it hurts sales of tickets and apparel.)

Europe – How Bad Can This Get?


QUESTION: Hi Marty,

I’m based here in South of England, within the commuter belt into London. The ECM forecasts an economic downturn 18.01.2020, and Europe looks to be at the epicentre. My own research tells me the job cuts in the auto sector in Germany are quite severe.

How does all this play out after January? We have already witnessed companies collapsing, Thomas Cook, and many teetering on the very of edge of collapse. How bad is this going to be, and how does this compare to 2008?

Of course, the next 3 months of 2019 are going to be very volatile, what I’m trying to understand is how does all this look like to the average city worker within finance, law or professional services.

Within my own peer group most are clueless on what is going on and perhaps they should be thinking of income protection rather than going out and buying £60k Range Rovers. The apathy never ceases to amaze me.

I welcome your insight. Thanks for your great work which keeps us mere mortals informed.

Cheers IB

ANSWER: The answer is very bad. The structure of the Eurozone is an absolute disaster. It is promoted as a single country, but it lacks everything that stands behind a currency. Just look at the tariffs starting between the USA and the EU. It is IMPOSSIBLE to negotiate a trade deal with Europe because each country can veto any deal, proving this is not a single country, and thus there is no substance behind the single currency. This is why I say Brexit is the only way for Britain to survive. It cannot negotiate any trade deals with the USA, China, Canada, or whoever because any other state can veto it. They surrendered their sovereignty and it is undermining the European economy.

If the US had to seek the approval of all 50 states before it could do any national policy, nothing would ever get done. The French can block trade deals and the US will look at the EU as a single entity because that is the structure on the surface. So the US could impose tariffs on German cars because of something France refuses to yield on. It is a giant political mess.

The only way for Europe to survive is for the Eurozone to actually collapse. Then each country could negotiate for itself without a veto from another over something irrelevant to their economy.

If the Eurozone were to survive, each country must surrender all autonomy to Brussels on everything retaining only local culture and laws. Brussels is trying hard to make it the United States of Europe, but the first thing that must go is the refusal to consolidate the debts and end the bail-in policy. Anything shy of that is playing with fire.

While the ECM is turning in January 2020, that appears to be impacting more externally to Europe. Europe may see economic turmoil into 2021.
