Could the oppressed ever find relief from the present-day Judges and Counselors? Isaiah of Jerusalem says, “Yes!”
“Therefore the Lord, the Lord Almighty, the Mighty One of Israel, declares: ‘Ah, I will get relief from my foes and avenge myself on my enemies. I will turn my hand against you; I will thoroughly purge away your dross and remove all your impurities. I will restore your judges as in the days of old, your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you will be called the City of Righteousness, the Faithful City. Zion will be redeemed with justice, her penitent ones with righteousness. But rebels and sinners will both be broken, and those who forsake the Lord will perish.'”
“No longer will the fool be called noble nor the scoundrel be highly respected. For the fool speaks folly; his mind is busy with evil; he practices ungodliness and spreads error concerning the Lord; the hungry he leaves empty and from the thirsty he withholds water. The scoundrel’s methods are wicked; he makes up evils schemes to destroy the poor with lies, even when the plea of the needy is just. But the noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds he stands.”
Imagine your city being called, “a City of Righteousness and Justice.”

The piece below, posted over two years ago, appears to have come true. David goes to trial! (See upcoming post for TEAM GOLIATH”s latest EXPOSURE by The Georgia Supreme Court)
Is The Handwriting On The Wall?
September 17, 2013
Daniel and his three Jewish buddies, Shadrach, Meshech and Abednego are vegetarians and do not eat King Nebuchadnezzar’s cheeseburgers or French fries. The four are captives taken from Jerusalem when the Babylonians burned the Temple, leveled the palace and carried 10,000 Jerusalemites off to captivity in 587 b. c. e. Nebuchadnezzar is a butcher and a self-proclaimed doer of all good. Any wonder he had bad dreams. He called in all his wise men, downtown geniuses, soothsayers, priests and anybody he could find who might interpret a particular dream. Because Daniel and his three buddies were brighter and stronger than the Babylonians around them, King Nebuchadnezzar placed the four men in his service. Because Daniel tells the king his dream and the dream’s meaning, he is well known in the kingdom as an interpreter of dreams and strange events.
Chapter 5 of the Book of Daniel in the Hebrew Bible, (Jewish theologian Marc Ellis correctly calls it The Older Testament,) relates this story of King Belshazzar and how the fingers of a man’s hand write words on the wall. If you enjoy a chilling story, read on. If you are a practicing member of the TEAM GOLIATH conspiracy, you might not want to read any more. If you love justice and pray that somehow, somewhere, someday it may prevail, read the fifth chapter of Daniel. Babylonian King Belshazzar is Nebuchadnezzar’s grandson, not his son as Daniel reports. Chapter 5 describes how Belshazzar gave a great banquet for a thousand of his nobles and drank wine with them.
Belshazzar’s party brings to mind Herod’s Antipas’s party where John the Baptist’s head is brought in on a platter at the request of Salome. My blog entitled “The HAG Delivers Again” features a similar Shirley Franklin party where Debi Starnes is urged by the Mayor of the golden tresses to bring in the head of the troubling, Anita Beaty, the truth-teller who refuses to obey the empire. This is a Swiftian modest proposal. It’s called satire and not history as some moron at Franklin’s City Hall implied. That is a blog I posted on 13 April 2009, entitled, “The Hag Delivers Again.”
Daniel 5:8 reads, “Then all the king’s wise men came in, but they could not read the writing or tell the king what it meant. So King Belshazzar became even more terrified and his face grew pale. His nobles were baffled.” The word “baffled” is a synonym of A. J. Robinson’s word, “mystified.” He used that with a reporter from the ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION in responding to Debi Starnes’ invention years ago that a “lice-infestation” was occurring at the Peachtree-Pine Community. See my piece entitled, “What’s In A Middle Name?” posted on 19 April 2011.
At Belshazzar’s party the nobles are baffled. At Central Atlanta Progress the noble A. J. Robinson is “mystified” by the report. Those of us who follow Starnes’ yarns were not able to “interpret” Robinson’s word: “mystified.” Was good A. J. confused by the Homeless Czar’s lie or by the possibility of a lice infestation. Whichever, Fulton County Health Department set straight the record by refuting Starnes’ fabrication saying to the press that there was no infestation of lice present or past at The Pine.
Belshazzar read the handwriting on the wall, “MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. Daniel came and interpreted,” verses 26-28 of Chapter 5: “God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end. You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting. Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians. Daniel 5:30 closes the book on King Belshazzar and his particular chapter of the empire, “That very night Belshazzar, king of the Babylonians, was slain, and Darius the Mede took over the kingdom, at the age of sixty-two.”
Suddenly the fingers of a human hand appeared and wrote on the plaster of the wall, near the lampstand in the royal palace. The king watched the hand as it wrote. His face turned pale and he was so frightened that his knees knocked together and his legs gave way.
Is the handwriting on the wall? Will a jury of their peers hear evidence that exposes Central Atlanta Progress, (CAP); Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, (ADID) and Manny Fialkow’s Premium Funding Solutions of TORTIOUS INTERFERENCE and the RICO Act RACKETEERING against a HOMELESS shelter? Will the trial set for November 4, 2013 really take place? Will the lampstand in the royal courtroom reveal the conspiracy? Is the handwriting on the wall? Could power brokers and movers and shakers who have dodged being deposed for two years have to face a jury of their peers? Is the handwriting on the wall?
Will thousands of documents sent back and forth between the City of Atlanta and all the accused bubble to the surface of this cesspool? Is the handwriting on the wall? The principalities almost always win; however, empires crumble, always. Your good ole boy system in Atlanta runs deep and wide. But on rare, very rare occasions, justice prevails even in Atlanta. We still have two boxes, the jury box and the ballot box. Somehow, just somehow perhaps, justice will prevail. Oh, Lord, what a morning when the stars begin to fall.
My friends, some of my neighbors and several of my relatives chide me gently for my speaking of “God’s burning rain,” Atlanta as “Sin-City,” “when the stars begin to fall,” and now Daniel’s “handwriting on the wall.” I know that the City of Atlanta has the protection of a federal judge in a ruling called sovereign immunity. Of course the City as a tool of TEAM GOLIATH carries the club’s water. The Club’s water carrier has to be protected too.
Everyone knows you can’t sue the king even when he murders two of his wives. And if every judge in the EMPIRE renders the principalities and powers “IMMUNE,” there is still a higher court. There’s Jim Lee Scott’s and Dr. King’s arc of the universe. The hundreds of women and children homeless and helpless on the streets of Atlanta INDICT City Hall, City Council, the Innovation $3.3M Delivery Team, The United Way, The Gateway, The Gateway Board of Directors boasting such luminaries as Jack Hardin and Little Miss Debi. Is the handwriting writing on the wall?
Emory University and Emory Health Care, Inc. face a similar lawsuit in the Superior Court of DeKalb County. The charges they face are basically the same as those of the downtown conspirators. Emory is by far the largest member of TEAM GOLIATH. How could snow-white Emory be involved with disappearing a shelter near downtown Atlanta? Emory Hospital is located almost directly across the street from The Pine on Peachtree Street. Many of the uppity ups in the Emory hierarchy break out in hives at the thought of Peachtree Pine being located so near. Its food court is off limits to any of the residents of the Peachtree-Pine Community. And closely following Emory’s hatred of Black men surfaces its love for a 96,000 square foot property facing on hallowed Peachtree Street. Is the writing on the wall? The connections between Emory and the nun-run Mercy Housing, Inc. and Central Atlanta Progress and Manny Fialkow and the SOVEREIGNLY IMMUNE City and Emory University and Emory Health Care, Inc. are a matter of record. Is the handwriting on the wall?
The King James 1611 translates the chilling words, “You are weighed in the balances and found wanting.” The NIV reads, “You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.” The scales of JUSTICE never balance for conspirators such as TEAM GOLIATH. Is the handwriting on the wall? The most recent atrocity of TEAM GOLIATH flooding the streets downtown with homeless women and children is beyond description. Emory Health Care stands accused by innocent little children who don’t know where they will spend their next hour. The Gateway Board of Directors closed its doors to ready itself for the men at The Pine when Manny Fialkow and our judicial system finish the job of stealing the building. (See my piece, (“Naboth’s Peachtree Pine” posted October 26, 2011) The nuns of Mercy Housing, Inc., a huge arm of the conspiracy, have joined hands with Horace Sibley and Manny Fialkow to force Peachtree Pine into foreclosure. One nun wrote (I have the e-mail) that the City of Atlanta will be in Mercy Housing’s debt for helping to put them in foreclosure. Imagine the NUNS of mercy and MANNY FIALKOW as bedfellows. Is the handwriting on the wall? Oh, Lord, what a morning!

Since Atlanta Mayor KR is going to tear down Peachtree Pine and build a new fire station, will he provide fireman’s caps for the 500 men who’ll be sleeping in the red fire engines and hanging out the windows. We can pray that his great leadership will cause this to happen by Christmas. Pretty red fire engines will brighten the drug infested streets around the Pine. Those streets are cluttered with pimps and whores and drug dealers by design. The front door to Precinct 5 opens 80 feet from heavy 24-7 drug trafficking. Could this be by accident. Move those drug business people down around the Commerce Club and watch how long they contemplate and procrastinate and defecate and urinate and masturbate in front of those courageous worthies.
Fulton County Health Department if anyone cared to check the facts has worked daily monitoring TB at Peachtree Pine. I wonder if they have visited City Hall or better yet the questionable, crack CDC? “Visiting” brings to mind a call I received today from a prominent Presbyterian minister. A bit irate, he asked if the Mayor had ever visited Peachtree Pine. I told the inquirer that if he had visited the facility as Mayor, I didn’t know it. He came by, I believe, when he was campaigning. And some of the men were excited that he may come back after the election. Sixty-nine people elected him twice. We have not seen him at the Pine. Perhaps, he drives by as did his predecessor, Shirley of the golden tresses. Ask about the latest appeal won by Baker Donelson attorneys hours before the Commerce Club Conflagration.

Jerry Farber is a dear friend and a great supporter of the Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, Inc. He called today to tell me that Boston has been so cold in the last few days that lawyers have their hands in their own pockets. Jerry jokes around often. I don’t believe his yarns.

Exhibit 28, “Fialkow-Peterson email, May 4,2010” is the last of 28 exhibits filed on July 11, 2014, by Baker Donelson attorneys Steve Hall and Bob Brazier in Judge Craig Schwall’s Superior Court of Fulton County, Georgia. Baker Donelson represents the plaintiff The Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, Inc. The defendants accused of tortious interference, taking property fraudulently, and racketeering among other crimes are Central Atlanta Progress (CAP,) Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID) and Emanuel Fialkow’s various companies. This exhibit features an email from Manny Fialkow to Dane Peterson, CEO of Emory Hospital located “across the street” from the Peachtree-Pine facility, 477 Peachtree Street, NE, Atlanta.
I quote the email that appears on two pages. The email begins two-thirds the way down the page because the top two-thirds of the page is blacked out with the white-lettered word “Redaction” written in the top left corner.
Exhibit 28 reads as follows:
From: Emanuel Fialkow
Sent: Tuesday, May 4, 2010 8:52 AM
To: Peterson, Dane
Dane this is the note and guaranty that I use on my deals with investors. As you can see, I put my money where my mouth is and personally guaranty (sic) the full payment and performance of each deal.
Structure will likely be a new LLC to be formed at closing on the purchase of any new property. The members will have an interest that is equal in percentage to their respective allotment of amount invested/loaned. We will pay an interest rate or return rate or dividend of 10% per annum plus 50% of an upside on any sale or recapitalization event. Manager gets the remaining 50% and assumes all risk. Note that I will be a member as well only to the percentage that I invest money via a trust or llc (sic) or personally or other.
The most reasonable reference about my performance would be for you to call the CFO of AGL (Atlanta Gas Light Resources, Drew Evans.) His cell number is 404 386-1028.
Members have no liability as std (sic) in a llc (sic). If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call me.
Steve Hall’s placing this email from Manny “He’s the person who will throw them out” Fialkow to Emory CEO Dane “DRIVING MISS DAISY” Peterson who represents the conspirator who wants most the Peachtree-Pine building for its Emory Proton Therapy Center is no accident. Hall has saved his death blow for last. This last piece of evidence brings uncorrupted Emory full frontal alongside the besmirched dealer. The slippery developer Manny Fialkow is joined at the hip to Emory Health Care, Inc. The Roman Catholic nuns of Mercy Housing Inc. chose to take $780.000.00 (or was it $900,000.00) from CAP’s pawn, Manny Fialkow. If you are wondering about that $120,000.00 shortfall, reread Fialkow’s “money where his mouth is” email to Emory’s messenger, Dane Peterson.
Dane Peterson, CEO of Emory Hospital, located close to Peachtree Pine, some years ago succeeded the Venerable Al “Your people keep pissing in our frog pond.” Blackwelder. Soon after Peterson arrived on the job, the food court security at Emory Hospital barred some ten or twelve Peachtree Pine residents from being served. Anita Beaty invited CEO Dane Peterson to come visit us at Peachtree Pine for a little chat. He came. In explaining how much he loved Atlanta, he said; I promise he said; ten of the men he had barred were in the room; he said, “Oh I adore Atlanta, it reminds me so much of the movie, DRIVING MISS DAISY.” One of the men present told me later, “He’ll fit right in with the thinking at CAP.” Peterson’s middle name around The Pine is DRIVING MISS DAISY.
As for the Venerable Al “Your people keep pissing in our frog pond”. Blackwelder, that worthy was tight with Alastair J. Robinson of CAP, and he was present on the TEAM GOLIATH trip to the Chic fil a headquarters where Dan Cathy was briefed on Peachtree Pine. Under oath Dan Cathy allowed that the visit from Blackwelder and Brad Curry and others did not influence his decision to immediately stop giving money the Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless
Fialkow assures Dane Peterson that he may check Manny’s “performance” with Atlanta Gas Light’s Drew Evans.
This concludes my comments on the 28 exhibits. It is an outrageous travesty of justice that our JUST US SYSTEM will never permit this damning evidence to be seen by a jury. Nonetheless, you and I have seen it.

Exhibit 27 What Do We Do With Debi Starnes or See How Central Atlanta Progress And Atlanta Downtown Improvement District And United Way Launder Money!
February 8, 2015
Exhibit 27 What Do We Do With Debi Starnes? Or See How Central Atlanta Progress and United Way Launder Money
Exhibit 27 is one of 28 in the lawsuit of the Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, Inc. v. Central Atlanta Progress (CAP), Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, Inc. (ADID) and Manny Fialkow’s variously named companies. The City of Atlanta as a defendant was squirming when eons ago it was taken off the hook by a protecting federal judge. Emory University and Emory Health Care, Inc. face the same charges as fellow conspirators: tortious interference, racketeering, taking fraudulently, etc. Emory’s protection comes not from a federal court but from the neighboring Superior Court of Dekalb County. This Exhibit 27 was filed on July 11, 2014, in Judge Craig Schwall’s Superior Court of Fulton County, Georgia. The Baker Donelson attorneys representing the plaintiffs are Steve Hall and Bob Brazier. These devastating documents in Exhibit 27 were written in August of 2008. The City of Atlanta, United Way of Atlanta, Central Atlanta Progress and Kwanza Hall of Atlanta City Council would all hope that this evidence had never seen the light of day.
Please note that the longest part of these emails is the list of names that were copied. Please note also the interminable list of names who received Alastair J. Robinson’s explanation. Imagine this many people in this many places needing an explanation of Debi Starnes having been paid or about to be paid “under the table.” I’d bet the stratagems alone practiced among these worthies could initiate yet another lawsuit. Note also the unique structure of these emails. By “unique” I mean that Alastair J. Robinson’s email is an email within an email. The first email’s originator is the daunted Paul Kelman, CAP’s Gordon Liddy look alike. Following Alastair J. Robinson’s explanation of some of their tricky moves necessary to launder money to Debi Starnes, Paul Kelman’s signature appears.
A word on the venerable Paul Kelman begs to be presented here. Since the day he compared a place that would succor people with AIDS to a TOXIC WASTE DUMP, he’s been viewed by fragile, weak people as powerful, as the Master, as the owner of the plantation. He petrifies the overwhelmed and he overwhelms the strong tax-paying members of Central Atlanta Progress. Fragile, unkempt homeless citizens hurrying alongside the Hurt Building fear Kelman; the high-rolling members of Central Atlanta Progress applaud his acumen. He is a man among men. He is a voice of downtown business. He is CAP.
But I gotta tell you. As I watched my redneck cousins kill deer in Canandaigua, NY, I’ve seen the eyes of a buck in the headlights just before his brains got splattered in the snow. I’ve seen a petrified deer’s eyes in the headlights. As my cousins would say, “I seen it when he done it.” But you know what? I saw it again, once again. I saw Paul Kelman’s eyes STARTLED in Anita Beaty’s headlights. Paul and Anita were inside; there were no headlights; people were standing around sipping drinks and nibbling hors d’oeuvres. But the eyes of that Central Atlanta Progress giant met the eyes of the dreaded, giant Anita Beaty. He froze. His eyes glazed. He wanted to run. Looking on, I feared that “that man among men” had suffered apoplexy. Anita spoke, “Hello, Paul,” and the Venerable “toxic waste dumb” specialist turned on his heels for the nearest Men’s Room. People standing with me wondered had he gone to throw up or had he just “fouled his small clothes.” I put my money on the latter.
A study should compare The Reverend Daniel Matthews’ physical reactions whenever he “flushes” at the thought of Peachtree Pine existing within 1000 feet of his corporation to those of the TOXIC’s whenever he encounters Anita Beaty. Several reliable sources over the years have reported to me that some prominent Atlantans, especially elderly white men, suffer loose bowels at the sight of “that woman,” Anita Beaty. Better yet, one scion told me that Horace Sibley at the THOUGHT of Anita Beaty “shits his pants.” Could be! If the holy father of St. Luke’s Vineyard crimsons at the mention of the Pine, perhaps the pride of King & Spaulding, Hosby Sibley, can foul his small clothes at the thought of “that woman.” Don’t forget that one of the better moments in literature occurs when Horace Sibley on a Christmas Eve long ago gives me the finger just before he ascends the chimney to join his fellow conspirators.
And if you throw in Rector Hoare (that’s Hoare with an H) over at Varsity Grill All Saints Episcopal, you’ll have a luscious corporate salad. Rector Hoare is the highest paid priest (more than my Bishop) in the Episcopal Corporation, and he preached on Super Bowl Sunday some years ago his diatribe against Peachtree Pine. The men in transition at The Pine counted 9 blatant falsehoods in his “homily” about the Peachtree Pine facility that he proclaimed from his Episcopal pulpit on the most HOLY DAY in the Church, SUPER BOWL SUNDAY. Go easy on the Hoare with an H because he really shepherds CAP folk in his flock, and more importantly he has a huge salary to protect.
Steve Hall’s brilliance in arranging these 28 exhibits cannot be adequately described. I am not a lawyer; I do not want to be a lawyer. I could never think like a lawyer; I can’t understand what lawyers write, rarely do I comprehend what they say. I don’t seek the company of half the lawyers I encounter. I pray for all lawyers. I avoid most lawyers. I lean heavily on Charles Dickens to teach me how to scrutinize lawyers. THE PICKWICK PAPERS give the truest account of lawyers I’ve ever read. Those are Dodson and Fogg who prosecute the adorable Pickwick himself.
I’m no lawyer, but I am a juror whenever I’m called. The jury box and the ballot box are the ONLY two boxes left us that even pretend to give the small equal footing with the great. It is only in the jury box that I’m permitted to sit with the great: Alastair J. Robinson, Kasim Reed, Brad Curry, Dan Mathews, Rector Hoare or Horace Sibley. Steve Hall has masterfully won the jurors, the small people for whom the jury box was created. Speak of Steve Hall’s brilliance as a lawyer, and I do, but lay that fact aside for a moment. Hall’s HEART compiled these exhibits. Hall’s heart touches the place where some of us live everyday where little homeless children have not one clue what tomorrow will bring. They pray for help from ROCK TENN and Mayor Somebody and The Chamber Pot.
They see a President who for eight years has promised CHANGE; they weep as the only change they know is bad change. They hear of a mayor in Atlanta who received millions of dollars from a billionaire politician in New York who wanted to help homeless people. And their mothers don’t have money for diapers or cereal or milk. They hear words like United Way and Gateway that have less meaning to them than no way or subway of highway or far away. Steve Hall has invaded these perpetrators. Steve Hall as Myrtle Davis says has exposed their system. Steve Hall has challenged Godzilla. David has faced Goliath. Five smooth stones rest in Hall’s shepherd’s bag. UNFORTUNATELY, no jury in a court of law will ever see or hear or think about any one of these 28 damning exhibits.
Our JUST US SYSTEM that shackles us could never permit Central Atlanta Progress to stand before a jury with its filthy undies gathered around its plantation ankles. Our JUST US SYSTEM could never permit the City of Atlanta to face the daily atrocities it commits against languished women and their stunned children, child abuse gone mad. Our JUST US SYSTEM could never permit Emory Health Care, Inc. to be exposed as the chief conspirator in the attempt to take the Peachtree-Pine building for its PROTON PENTAGON. Emory may very well steal Peachtree-Pine in due time for its other purposes, but the $$$ for the PROTON PENTAGON have already built that monster four blocks away from Emory’s preferred location. Our JUST US SYSTEM that permits Debi Starnes to use sylph-like creations such as the Continuum of Care, the overall Consolidated Plan, and the laughable 10-Year Plan To End Chronic Homelessness to slash Task Force Funds could never ever allow those drones to be scrutinized by Steve Hall before a jury. He would win. The people would win. And the system’s protectors know that truth.
The reasons that CAP and ADID and Manny Fialkow and the corrupt City of Atlanta and Emory University and Emory Health Care, Inc. will never face a jury are legion. One reason is that they will lose, and they sense that fact. Besides, nobody gets those bastards in front of a jury. Another reason, and that reason appears high on the list. I say again that reason is STEVE HALL. Steve Hall, the attorney. They didn’t know Steve Hall when they shut off the water at Peachtree Pine. They know him now. They have studied him; they have researched him; they know him to be the litigator that he is. But that is not really why they fear him. His heart, it’s his heart. His HEART for righteousness before a jury will kick their collective, corrupt ass, Realize with me, please, that before this lawsuit, Central Atlanta Progress had never been so much as subpoenaed to be deposed. I may need to be corrected on this, but I believe that this plantation-thinking power has never been deposed, much less faced a jury of its peers. Of course, those plantation folks have no peers; the JUST US folks called to serve on juries are not peers of the Alastair J. Robinsons of this world.
Steve Hall identifies Exihibit 27 as “Orr-Robinson email re: Starnes funding, check, Wardell-Kelman email, 7/23/08, 8/6/08.” I give it a different title with a subtitle: What Do We Do With Debi Starnes? or See How CAP, ADID and United Way Launder Money.

Subject: Response to Questions About Funding Debi Starnes’ Efforts
From: A. J. Robinson
Let me try to answer the questions that Joe, Hank, Karen and others have raised regarding this request.
First, our check would be written to the United Way, not to the City. United Way has been the administrator of most of the City’s/Mayor’s programs regarding homelessness since the program was begun a few years back. Debi Starnes was funded by the City but since the homeless program the Mayor created technically a city function (social services are supposed to be handled by Fulton County), the Mayor could not continue funding it in this shrinking budget environment.
We share the ongoing tension of “Isn’t this something the City should do?” We face that question almost every day on many issues. This particular issue we believe warrants out temporary support for the following reasons:
1. Progress has been made over the past six years. If we turn back now, we risk sliding backwards.
2. The Mayor has about 16 more months in office and we are not sure who will follow with any commitment on this issue. [(The Downtown business community needs to make sure that this issue is kept front and center during the campaign leading up to the election.]
3. The same can be said for Horace Sibley and Debi, who are well equipped to handle this program.
4. We are soon launching a new panhandling initiative which, as you know, is mission critical. Debi has been a strong advocate on this program and we need her help within the corridors of City Hall.
5. I’m hopeful ADID will not be the only funder of this stop gap measure but we definitely have a lot to lose if we don’t continue.
6. Time is of the essence regarding this funding request.
As to your other questions:
1. We are not aware of any additional funding requests programmed for the future.
2. We think it would be best for Debi to remain an employee or contractor for the United Way and be accountable to them and the entire community. She does have a special relationship with the Mayor and Council that we all need to use to best advantage on this issue.
3. We don’t know what will happen at the end of this funding request period.
Thank you for your consideration of this important request. Once we have heard back from everyone, we will update you on the vote and next steps.

Very good response, Paul. Dave
The next full page of Exhibit 27 following Dave Wardell’s “attaboy” to Paul Kelman contains copies of two $40,000 ADID checks made payable to United Way Regional Commission and show “Debi Starnes Homelessness Gift” Check #8625 is dated 8/12/2008; the second check shows $40,000 for Debi Starnes Homelessness Gift.” There is no number showing on the second check.
Note: Debi Starnes was deposed two times by Steve Hall . She contradicted herself so many times that the attorney asked her twice if she was on medication. After several instances of outright bearing false witness, Attorney Hall asked her if she was aware that she was under oath. Steve Hall roasted the Czar of Homelessness two times in excess of five hours. Lil Miss Debi left both grillings thoroughly cooked.

Exhibit 26 Robinson – Orr email re: Baker Donelson
Exhibit 26, entitled “Robinson – Orr email re: Baker Donelson” is one of 28 filed on July 11, 2014, in Judge Craig Schwall’s Superior Court of Fulton County, Georgia. The Baker Donelson Law Firm attorneys are Steve Hall and Bob Brazier. Much background information should be provided before this Exhibit 25 is quoted here. The exhibit is presented as evidence against defendants Central Atlanta Progress (CAP), Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID) and developer Manny Fialkow’s various companies that change names with each new tide. The City of Atlanta, a huge player in the conspiracy was long ago removed from the lawsuit, enjoying the federal protection of Sovereign Immunity. The City is not IMMUNE from wrongdoing; it is IMMUNE from punishment for wrongdoing.
First of all, the chances of the City of Atlanta, the plantation-minded Central Atlanta Progress (CAP), the hazy Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID), or the slippery developer Manny Fialkow ever facing any kind of legal opposition are infinitesimal. Naboth and his vineyard had no chance against King Ahab (I Kings 21). Our JUST US SYSTEM protects the strong against the weak. You don’t sue the City. Henry VIII is above any law and could not be tried for murder or for any other crime he committed. If the City’s SWAT team kicks in the wrong door and shoots an elderly woman, then there could be, possibly, a settlement. If the City’s FINEST raid a gay bar at the wrong time with the wrong clubs using the wrong procedures, perhaps repercussions could follow.
But a despised shelter on hallowed Peachtree Street with huge numbers of poor African-American men (and now 100 women and children) could never have its day in court. And surely not if that facility is located 1000 feet from the Christian stronghold of faith, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. Our JUST US SYSTEM, especially in Fulton County, Georgia, would not be caught dead allowing conspirators of this ilk to be exposed for stealing a shelter’s property. Keep in mind that Emory University and Emory Health Care, Inc. are leading perpetrators in this conspiracy; however, their protector is not Fulton County Court but the neighboring Superior Court of Dekalb County. They are birds of a feather.
Myrtle Davis is a revered and righteous woman in Atlanta, a former member of Atlanta City Council and a one-time Atlanta mayoral candidate. She serves our City honorably. She happens also to be a vital member of the Board of Directors of the Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless. Waiting with me thirty minutes before one of the many hearings in Judge Schwall’s Superior Court of Fulton, she made a telling statement. I paraphrase her comment. She said that she never dreamed the remotest possibility of an Atlanta law firm taking on the City and representing a non-profit organization. We marveled together that the prestigious Baker Donelson firm had done just that.
I marveled further at what I saw in the hall of the courthouse that day. Before my eyes there appeared two men standing beside the courtroom door. Dressed imperially, both leaned and huddled against the wall. One sported a protestant clerical collar complemented by a suave black suit. The other donned what appeared to be a Brooks’ Brothers suit accentuated by alligator (perhaps rattlesnake) shoes. The Brooks’ Brothers’ brother was Manny Fialkow, defendant in the lawsuit, collared in a reputation not all that clean. The cleric was Dan Matthews, CEO of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, located less than a thousand feet from the Peachtree Pine facility. Insiders at St. Luke’s Episcopal tell me that Matthews becomes visibly flushed at the mention of the Peachtree Pine facility. There they nestled, the collared cleric and the corporate climber united. Shakespeare’s TEMPEST came to my mind. “Alas, the storm is come. . . . Politics make strange bedfellows.” I know that neither Matthews nor Fialkow is a politician technically; nonetheless, two more political beings you will not find.

See below, BakerDonelson are on wrong side of City, business community, and all govt entities providing homeless resources in Atlanta. It is rumored they are preparing to sue the city on behalf of Anita Beaty and her dysfunctional homeless operation. This would be a terrible mistake and will haunt them for years in Atlanta.
The 5th email above comes from AJ Robinson, President of CAP to Sam Williams, President of Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. Everyone over 5 years of age and awake hears all kinds of threats these days. I wonder in what category of threats one places this sentence, “This would be a terrible mistake and will haunt them for years in Atlanta.” At the time AJ Robinson first asked about the attorneys who might dare “sue the City on behalf of Anita and her dysfunctional homeless operation,” there were a few things he did not know. He soon learned that the Baker in Baker Donelson is Senator Howard Baker of Tennessee who uncovered Richard M. Nixon and the Watergate Scandal. Remember, “What did he know and when did he know it?” Robinson now knows that his own words in hundreds of confiscated documents exposed his own little CONSPIRACYGATE. Don’t fail to recognize that the Williams at The Chamber is Alastair J. Robinson’s pal “Sammy” Williams who scurried from the C of C scene soon after the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal broke.
