Go to the Sidebar under Related Links at my blog site in order to click on this new Table of Contents. I’m learning that hundreds of researchers are studying the three lawsuits currently leveled against the City of Atlanta, Central Atlanta Progress and several other conspirators. I have named this wide-spread Cabal, this Star Chamber, this nest of snake-pit dwellers, these detesters of the weak, TEAM GOLIATH. While my blog collection is not all encompassing, it is the most extensive history, to my knowledge, of the attack against the Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless and the Peachtree-Pine Community in downtown Atlanta.

When City of Atlanta attorneys deposed me in February of 2010, I answered their questions for 5 hours. They focused exclusively on what I had written. Lawyers at the city had read every essay. When the weak “Beacon” in NPU – M responds with comments on my blog spelling ICHTHUS, “Ithcus,” I know that the well-oiled hate machine of Peggy “Arrest the bums” Denby is reading my essays. In fact many members of the love to hate TEAM GOLIATH read this blog. I hope this Table of Contents helps Richard Orr find his several middle names. God bless you all as you read the truth.

On Thursday, December 9, 2010, Judge Craig L. Schwall, Sr. denied a motion filed by ICHTHUS Community Trust, Co. (Manny Fialkow) to remove Anita Beaty and The Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, Inc. from the Peachtree-Pine Community. A handful of us from Team David go to these hearings praying for relief from the heel of the oppressors. Several of us arrived early, some 30 minutes before the 2:30 hearing.

Courthouses frighten me in general. What I saw representing the best of two worlds terrified me in particular. And there before my wondering eyes should appear two giants from two different worlds, the spiritual and the corporate, the holy and the not so. Heavenly power, earthly power. Two forces I would not expect to be huddled in deep conversation against the wall outside a Judges’ courtroom. I’m learning from every suffocating moment to suffocating moment that the church world and the developer’s world are not far apart.

I was told by a colleague that the collared clergy is the Reverend Dan Matthews, the Rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, a centerfielder’s peg from Peachtree-Pine. Residents of The Pine standing with me identified the gentleman standing with the man of God. They knew him as the person who interviewed for tenants at Crossroads also across The Pine. They said he offers slum dwellings. The second deep in conversation with the man of the cloth is Manny Fialkow, they told me.

Can it be? We learn from history and movies and the Hebrew Bible that conspiracies make for strange bedfellows. The huddle outside the courtroom continued inside. Five TEAM GOLIATH attorneys sat around the room. I thought I was watching THE GODFATHER: lawyers and priests and court reporters and bailiffs and a few of us homeless folks longing for a piece of the justce pie.

The conspiracy that I’ve named TEAM GOLIATH truly has brought together strange bedfellows. And those confluences are not UPLIFTING.

“Ithcus” ?

December 18, 2010

A response on my blog from a whiff of TEAM GOLIATH spells ICHTHUS, “Ithcus.” Is this a transliteration of a Greek word that doesn’t exist? Or is it just another Midtown, NPU M illiteracy?

Testifying before Judge Craig Schwall in Superior Court of Fulton County on December 9, 2010, the Rev. Darrell Elligan, told the Court that a new organization, Uplift Atlanta is prepared to pay Manny Fialkow’s ICHTHUS Community Trust, Inc. $39,000 rent per month for the Peachtree Pine building presently occupied by The Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, Inc. and 700 residents who call it home. The Rev. Elligan added that the $39,000 per month would be paid for only 3 to 6 months.

Questions loom. Would a group willing to put $39,000 in Manny Fialkow’s pocket be happy to pay patient Georgia Power the overdue electric bill, $35,000? Would good Uplift Inc. pay the gas bill for The Pine so that people who have taken cold showers for 18 months could have a little warm water? For Christmas, perhaps? Could Task Force employees not paid for two full years get a month’s pay at Christmas season from the coffers that are willing to stuff lucre into Fialkow’s jeans? Uplift Atlanta is a new name soon to be memorialized along with dozens of dead plans attempting to disappear Black men from the Sanitized Zone, from the Vagrant Free Zone, from the Safeguard Zone, from the Tourist Triangle and the Peachtree Corridor.

That list of dead things long buried are Debi Starnes’ HAG, Woody Bartlett’s HAP that didn’t live long enough to breathe, Jim Milner’s million dollar ROC (Resource Opportunity Center), CAP’s Wake Up Atlanta where Dave “Great news!” Wardell and APD woke up sleeping homeless people with a prod here and there, Stay Up Atlanta is a new name for Wake Up Atlanta.

Then came the heralded Gateway that defunct Starnes and retired Sibley and accused A. J. Robinson and rock of Rock Hill Richard “Crap sniffer” Orr all herald as the model shelter that would end homelessness in Atlanta. Note: Horace Sibley ended homelessness in Atlanta by redefining it. The only homeless people are the “chronically homeless.” And all the chronically homeless are the imprisoned at Peachtree Pine. Therefore get rid of them and our downtown is rid of the scourge of homeless people.

Now Uplift Atlanta, Inc. bubbles to the surface. It seeps up as the latest effort to disappear homeless people and to destroy the largest community for homeless people in the Southeast? Who is Uplift Atlanta? Who provides the $40,000 per month? Notes on Mercy’s Diane Leavesley’s pad in 2008 said somebody in Atlanta could come up with $1,000,000 in one day in order to buy Task Force notes; perhaps that same $1,000,000 source is the cash cow that now will give TEAM GOLIATH $39,000 a month.

All the above must be a mistake. I think these doers of all good meant to say AIRLIFT Atlanta, Inc. The quickest method to get rid of Anita Beaty and her 700 nuisances is to AIRLIFT them out of Atlanta. The roof of the Peachtree-Pine building is flat; it is 17,800 square feet. There are real plans for roof gardens. But a better plan is helicopter pads. Air routes to Valdosta are open; Birmingham can take a few hundred; the service-resistant recalcitrant ones could be taken straight east to the Atlantic and dropped along with the disobedient, Anita Beaty. These service-resistant ones are the “chronic” that Horace Sibley wants so much to service.

ICHTHUS is the English transliteration of the Greek word for fish. And “fish” since the first century has been a symbol of Christianity and has been held to be sacred by the followers of Jesus. Seven of the twelve disciples were fishermen (Mt 4:18-22; Mk 1:16-20; Lk 5:1-11). Jesus directed his disciples to pay his temple tax with a coin to be found in the mouth of the next fish to be caught. Feeding 5,000 in Mk 6:30-44 and 4,000 in Mk 8:1-10 begins with 5 loaves and 2 fish and 7 loaves and a “few small fish” respectively.

Probably, the primary reason why the fish, ICHTHUS, is one of the strongest symbols of the early church is that the Greek letters, iota, chi, theta, upsilon and sigma, represent the first letters in Greek of the five words for Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior. Those five letters in the Greek alphabet transliterate into seven letters in the English transliteration, ICHTHUS. Therefore, in any instance, whenever ICHTHUS is written or spoken the writer or speaker in addition to writing or saying the word “fish” is also saying, “Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior.”

In the thousands of pages supoenaed from Central Atlanta Progress and Mercy Housing, Inc, many documents show that the nun-run organization refused to sell the mortgage notes of The Pine directly to Central Atlanta Progress. That refusal got A. J. Robinson scurrying for a buyer that would pass muster with the sometimes cautious nuns.

Somewhere along the way, perhaps along the Peachtree Street way, perhaps a Greek scholar in the Uplift Atlanta, Inc. way, perhaps a clergy person in the sanitized zone way, came up with a new name that would satisfy the sometimes cautious Catholic nuns like Sister Jane Gerety. Manny Fialkow and his fellow conspirators formed ICHTHUS COMMUNITY TRUST, Inc. in Las Vegas, Nevada, not too long before foreclosure.

Solomon teaches his readers that there is nothing new under the sun. Page after page of incriminating documents and deposition after deposition of prominent Atlantans purging themselves in the current lawsuits against the City of Atlanta, Central Atlanta Progress, ADID (Defendants) along with others already named such as Cousin Properties, Inc. and Emory Health Care Inc. show the limitless expanse of evil that follows greed and gluttony.

Of all the lice and TB lies and all the false accusations of poor management and all the neighborhood gossip and blatant propaganda leveled against The Pine, the creation of ICHTHUS by a group of highly questionable corporate types may be the most egregious sacrilege of all the wrongs they have committed. And to think that ICHTHUS may have been used here to assuage nuns in an already sleazy takeoveris remarkable. The line of conspirators already on TEAM GOLIATH stretches around the 94,000 square foot home of the community at The Pine. How much longer will that snake grow? Stand back, Darling!

Ratchet Rob “I’ll turn your water off” Hunter will be deposed at 10 this morning at his OLD stomping grounds, Atlanta City Hall. Hunter served as Shirley Franklin’s Commissioner of the Department of Water Mismanagement. The brightest moments of his tenure were the three times Debi Starnes told him to turn off the water at The Peachtree Pine Community where 700 citizens of Atlanta live. His demise came, however, when he irritated the citizens of Buckhead. There are citizens with rights and there are citizens.

In Atlanta the withholder of water from people who A. J. Robinson says are “down on their luck” gets applause from the warm crowds that Peggy Denby orchestrates from her bunker. But if you buck Buchhead, you’re gone.

Speaking of “gone,” Debi Starnes was deposed yesterday for a second five and a half hours. Among her answers was one in which she said that she is no longer paid by United Way or ADID or CAP. Debi and I frequent the same Tavern. We chatted for a New York minute on December 2. I told her the Task Force Board members wanted to know who pays her now. She told me that her busines pays her now.

This must be true. The way the truth works with Starnes is this. If she makes a statement two or three times, it becomes the truth. Do I see little pointed toes of that doer of all good sticking out from under the bus? Has her scepter as Czar, a broom, been taken away?

In an earlier blog I wrote that Rachet Rob “I’ll turn your water off” Hunter was the first of TEAM GOLIATH champions to fall. He becomes toast on New Years day. Conspiracies make such stangest bedfellows. And sometimes they wind up under the bus together. Watch for more on strange bedfellows.

TEAM GOLIATH giant Debi Starnes will face questions from Baker Donelson Attorney Steve Hall at 10 am on December 15 in Starnes’ home court, Atlanta City Hall. Starnes’ first deposition in September 2009 lasted 5 hours. Starnes had to be reminded numerous times by Baker Donelson Attorney Steve Hall that she was UNDER OATH. How many times will that reminder be necessary tomorrow, December 14, 2010?
