A City of Atlanta attorney and the City’s Commissioner of Watershed Management met this morning, September 18, 2014, with the Task Force’s attorney S. Hall, Task Force Board Member Carl Hartrampf and Task Force Director Anita Beaty. The Commissioner informed the Task Force that the water at the Peachtree-Pine Facility is scheduled to be shut off on Monday, September 22. Only a payment of hundreds of thousands of dollars to the City’s water department by Friday afternoon can avert the shut-off of water at the emergency facility where last night 432 people resided. Of this total 432 people, 42 are women and 28 are children. Let me ask you to do one thing or three of three things that will help you. One, go to the Task Force website, http://www.atlantataskforceforthehomeless.org and send a donation of money. If you earmark your donation for “water” we will get it to the City of Atlanta Water Department. Two, bring all the bottled water you can gather to 477 Peachtree Street (Pine Street door). Three, pray for the soul of a City of Atlanta that can wrongfully cut funds and then turn around and shut-off water keeping homeless women and their children from water, a basic necessity of life.

Whatever your political persuasion, TEAM GOLIATH conspirator or a sensitive human being, surely you see the cruelty of a shut-off of water to people who have no place to go. The Task Force Attorney Steve Hall inquired about the hundreds of huge debtors to the City for back water bills. Mr. Hall didn’t mention any businesses but he could have. An AJC reporter said recently that the Water Department has “forgiven” many water bills far in excess of what the City claims is owed by Peachtree Pine. The city attorney told Mr. Hall that ONLY the Task Force’s bill would be discussed. Where is Mayor Reed in all this? Could the Superior Court of Fulton County be in all this? Is United Way offering dollars per head to struggling churches for the people they will take in when the county or the court or gog or magog close Peachtree Pine?

Micah 2:1-2, if I may quote Emanuel “God with us” Fialkow’s middle name: “Woe to those who scheme iniquity, who work out evil on their beds! When morning comes, they do it, For it is in the power of their hands. They covet fields and then seize them, and houses and take them away. They rob a man and his house, A man and his inheritance.” I beg you for water.

Exhibit 12 Tab 12 Sr. Jane Gerety: “…we should pass the hat immediately.”

Baker Donelson Attorney Steve Hall filed Exhibit 12 along with 27 others in Judge Craig Schwall’s Superior Court of Fulton County on July 11, 2014. Judge Schwall responded with a ruling that permitted attorneys for Manny Fialkow to move toward the dispossession of the property in question, the Peachtree-Pine Center. Also the Judge affirmed his Special Masters’ ruling that asserted that defendants Fialkow, Central Atlanta Progress and Atlanta Downtown Improvement face eight claims that need the decision of a jury. The following four e-mails were written and sent on November 12, 2008. They show the collaboration among TEAM GOLIATH members, the Nun-run Mercy Housing, Inc., The City of Atlanta, Central Atlanta Progress, Atlanta Downtown Improvement District and Emory Health Care, Inc. Steve Hall entitles Exhibit 12, “Sister Gerety email to Diane Leavesley.” I have quoted the four emails verbatim in the order they were written.

“From: Gerety, Sister Jane
Sent: Wednesday, November 12, 2008 9:14 AM
To: Julie Gould
Subject: call

Julie,
I got your voice mail. Thanks. I wanted to talk to you about the possibility of foreclosure on the Peachtree and Pine property in Atlanta. I’ve talked with Pete (Walker) and with others representing the city and believe that foreclosing is what we should do. It needs to be part of a plan to move the men living in the shelter to other facilities where there are supportive services and a proposal from Mercy Housing for affordable housing on the site. There may be some negative publicity, but I think that can be mitigated by the plan and the proposal. Moving the men is very doable and represents a philosophy that is much more enlightened than warehousing them in the present facility. In addition, if Mercy Housing can accomplish this, I believe we will be in the debt of the city, the business community and the foundations. Horace Sibley, who chairs the Mayor’s commission to end homelessness, told me that if we can get this accomplished, we should pass the hat immediately.

That’s the gist of what I wanted to talk about, but if you get a chance, and I will fill in more details.
Safe travels,
Sr. Jane”

Handwritten notes by Diane Leavesley, Head of Mercy Loan, Inc. during a conference call follow, ”Anita’s vision meets people where they are; Horace wants to get people out of homelessness.” “1 by 1 her funding sources have dried up; a proposal to rehab the building to maintain the shelter w/SRO hsg above.” “Foreclose sensitively & delicately; Horace has a plan to move men.”

Note: Diane Leavesley’s notes read that Anita meets people where they are. That is true; however, her note implies that nothing but sheltering takes place. Every day of the year for 17 years the Peachtree Pine facility has provided, intake and assessment, case management, three recovery meetings each week, GED classes, basic computer-skilled classes, computer lab: job search, resume building, COMPASS access, e-mail access, clothing closet, weight room, resident volunteer training and housing, transitional housing program, art studio, roof-top vegetable garden and a monthly health clinic. Sister used TEAM GOLIATH’s favorite term, “warehousing.”

There remain monolithic differences between Horace Sibley, Debi Starnes and the Task Force. The Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, Inc. has fed, sheltered, clothed and housed hundreds for years while Horace Sibley and Debi Starnes worked feverishly to crush every move of the Atlanta Task Force. Neither Horace nor Debi nor United Way nor the City has ever had a plan to house the men at Peachtree-Pine. Their plan consists solely of disappearing people unsightly in their kin.

Don’t miss Good Sister Jane’s exclaiming with glee that the City, the business community and the foundations will all owe the Nun-run Mercy Housing, Inc. if these sisters, married to Jesus, “can help to accomplish this” the shutting down of  a shelter for homeless people.   Sister Jane Gerety did more than pass the hat. At the time of these collaborations the Nun-run St. Joseph’s Hospital in Atlanta was going belly up. That defunct disaster got bailed out by none other than conspirator Emory Health Care, Inc. I look at Emory’s new sign often. Today it is Emory St. Joseph. Pass the hat, please.

Last night, September 2-3, 2014, forty-two children with their mothers spent the night on mats at Peachtree and Pine. Calls from well-wishers and do-gooders alert us that we are to be evicted soon We’ve received these calls for 5 years. Some are TEAM GOLIATH pranksters; some care that homeless people will be left at the mercy of United Way. Come now BEFORE the Court closes the doors. Come now before Emory swallows the place. Come before Manny Ahab steals Naboth’s vineyard. Why wait United Way? Why wait Fulton County Commissioners? Why wait urban and suburban churches? Why wait Synagogues and Mosques? Why wait travelers aid? Why wait to reopen, Gateway? We welcome you all. You come and succor the 100 perishing ones. Please come, Sisters of Mercy!

The title of this exhibit 5 Tab 5 “Sammy…we are keeping the pressure on….” is borrowed from Exhibit 2 Tab 2 “Who REALLY Runs Atlanta.” The pressure that is being applied to plot against the Task Force for the Homeless and homeless people present in downtown surfaces clearly in the October 23, 2006 meeting held at Central Atlanta Progress. Remember Mayor Shirley Franklin’s office hosted this meeting while CAP furnished the place to meet and United Way gathered other conspirators to attend this gathering. The subject line reads: Meeting about Peachtree and Pine. Wardell’s points listed below are to be covered in the November 20, 2006 meeting. Same song, different verse.

David E. Wardell, CPP, Vice President, Operations and Public Safety, on Friday, November 17, 2006 informs CAP Boss Robinson of the “Things that people are going to look into:”
– Look at emergency shelter standards (Public Works and United Way/Homeless Commission staff)
– Evaluate strengths and weaknesses of Homeless TF (Code enforcement and Homeless Commission;
– Who is on the Board of Directors of the Homeless Task Force? Want to go to the source of their resourcing and/or political support.
– Data to be collected: Volume of Complaints, Bad capacity there and at other shelters (Homeless Commission Staff;
– Law Department was going to look at the applicable or prevailing ordinances (Lem – Law Department)
– What is required to declare it a public nuisance?
– I delivered the copy of the Homeless Master Plan for their expansion program that City Planning requested. Looking at Grandfather Clauses and Fire and Safety Codes.
– Zoning as SPI (City Planning)
– Develop Public Affairs Component (? – Did not determine responsibility for putting this together) Lynette is looking for recommendations for solutions at this meeting
– We delivered the Executive Summary of the incidents in the area to Lynette (she acknowledged receipt).
– Since our last meeting (Ko Hassan’s Oct. 23rd meeting) Judge Green rebutted the information (Will not let it happen in the future) about the ordinances the police were allegedly being challenged by the Municipal Court for enforcing. Urban camping and something to do with tampering with vehicles in parking lots.

As long ago as 2006, eight years back, this conspiracy has boiled. The fight against the poor in the streets of Dr. King’s city has been relentless and endless.

Note: Dave Wardell’s to do list speaks for itself. However, several points are worthy of notice. Involved in plans to disappear the largest emergency shelter in the Southeast are the very persons mandated to give relief to those in need. Rather than help, suggest, aid, support and rescue; these charlatans form the largest conspiracy imaginable against the weakest people and the most vulnerable of non-profit organizations. Look at the organizations in the cabal: United Way, City Hall, City Council, The Chamber of Commerce, The Homeless Commission, headed so long by the Venerable Horace Sibley, the churches on Peachtree Street (for God’s sake). Atlanta had the opportunity to make Peachtree-Pine the finest example of a city’s caring for its little ones. What did they do? They plotted ways to declare it a nuisance. What did they do with a workable plan for mixed housing? They sabotaged the plan and looked for those who might have been responsible for it. They “got to” the nuns who held the mortgage. Boatloads of evidence of tortious interference, fraud and racketeering come out later in the remaining exhibits masterfully presented on July 11, 2014 by Baker Donelson attorneys. Watch for Exhibit 6 Tab 6 where monolithic Emory Health Care, Inc. raises its holy head.

Jeremiah 22:16
August 5, 2014

The Book of Jeremiah, the longest book in the Hebrew Bible, brings hope to the disenfranchised, the destitute, the chained, the scattered, the wounded,  the vulnerable.  It is not a hope that returns to a world that was; it is a hope that births upheaval, that brings a new world.  It is a hope that obliterates the status quo trimmers, the business as usual elites, the good ole boy steles. 

 

                The fall of Jerusalem in 587 b. c. e. did not end the world.  It ended a world, the world of palace politics and temple theology.  A world ended that had crushed the poor, that had stolen from the weak, that had neglected the orphan.  Empires fall; they always do.  The false prophets, the fake priests, the imperial kings and their myopic followers were trudged off to Babylon like dumb cattle, never to return.  That draconian world ended.

 

Chris Hedges’ DAYS OF DESTRUCTION; DAyS OF REVOLT, exposes American imperialism that butchered the native American nation; that gave us the present day Camden, N. J.; that ravishes this second the mountains of Kentucky and West Virginia, and strangles farm laborers in tomato fields in Florida.   Hedges proclaims the possibility of the end of this abysmal carnage, perhaps not in his lifetime, but an end nonetheless.  Empires and their by-products crumble.  The corporate structure of the United States, epitomized by Goldman Sachs, will implode.  The coal company moguls will contract the same Black lung disease that has killed thousands of coal miners over the years. 

 

In Atlanta the seepage of corporate culture shenanigans is seen readily in Central Atlanta Progress (CAP), Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID) and in Emanuel Fialkow’s opaque Premium Funding Solutions, Inc.  While Atlanta City Hall and Atlanta City Council carry the water for these elites, homeless women and their children perish emotionally and developmentally in their streets that boast streetcars and stadiums and Ferris wheels.

 

Barring a judicial atrocity and a miscarriage of justice, these elites, (CAP, ADID and Fialkow) will stand trial in the Superior Court of Fulton County, Atlanta, GA, on November 4, 2013.  They are charged for starters with tortious interference, racketeering and attempting to steal real estate fraudulently.  The City of Atlanta, entwined with these conspirators, escaped trial under the protection of SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY, an example of the buddy system at work with a federal judge.  TEAM GOLIATH having conspired to steal property, to disappear homeless people and to destroy the Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, Inc. awakened one morning as DEFENDANTS in a lawsuit.  Little David with nothing but five smooth stones happens to be the PLAINTIFF.  It is not the end of the world for the GOLIATHS.  Nonetheless, little David sees the possibility of the beginning of the end of a world whose demise is long overdue.  Emory University and Emory Health Care face their day in court in another court on another day.

 

On the will to expose, expose, expose the elites of corporate culture, Chris Hedges ends his book with this:

 

“There were times when I entered the ring as a boxer and knew, as did the spectators, that I was woefully mismatched.  Ringers—experienced boxers in need of a tune-up or a little practice—would go to the clubs where semi-pros fought, lie about their long professional fight records, and toy with us.  Those fights became about something other than winning.  They became about dignity and self-respect.  You fought to say something about who you were as a human being.  These bouts were punishing, physically brutal, and demoralizing.  You would get knocked down and stagger back up.  You would reel backward from a blow that felt like a cement block.  You would taste your blood on your lips.  Your vision would blur.  Your ribs, the back of your neck, and your abdomen would ache.  Your legs felt like lead.  But the longer you held on, the more the crowd turned in your favor.  No one, not even you, thought you could win.  But then, every once in a while, the ringer would get overconfident.  He would get careless.  And you would find deep within yourself some new burst of energy, some untapped strength, and with the fury of the dispossessed, bring him down.  I have not put on a pair of boxing gloves for thirty years.  But I feel this twinge of euphoria again in my stomach, this utter certainty that the impossible is possible, the realization that the mighty can fall.”   

 

.               The fangs of Atlanta’s corporate culture, City government, City Council, Chamber of Commerce, neighborhood units, the one daily newspaper and much of the religious community have sunk deep into the Atlanta Task Force for the homeless.  Their poison has flowed for years without shutting down the Task Force, one of the objects of their hatred.  All the above represent corporate culture and empire thinking.  These are St. Paul’s “principalities and powers” who always win the day for a day.  They never win, ultimately.  For years I have referred to this conspiracy formed against the poor in Atlanta as TEAM GOLIATH.  Like Chris Hedges’ dishonest but powerful ringers, TEAM GOLIATH got overconfident, careless.  They never dreamed that a prominent law firm would do the honorable.  Nor did they dream that 10,000 pages of their emails and letters would surface for the scrutiny of twelve jurors.  The indomitable got careless.   Team David awaits carrying a slingshot and five smooth stones.

 

With Chris Hedges, we of the five smooth stones sense a twinge of euphoria at seeing the impossible becoming possible.  Whatever takes place in courtrooms, three miracles will certainly take place before the eyes of twelve JURORS: EXPOSURE, EXPOSURE and EXPOSURE.

Jeremiah 22:16

September 27, 2013

Diogenes, the Greek philosopher, carried a lantern lifting it eye level in hopes of finding an honest person. Now, in Chapter 5 of the Book of Jeremiah in the Hebrew Bible, Jeremiah becomes the Hebrew Diogenes. I don’t know that Jeremiah carried a lantern. I do know that Yahweh sent him to the streets of downtown Jerusalem in search of a rare commodity, a person who acted justly and who loved the truth.

Chapter 5 begins, (New Jerusalem Bible),
“Rove the streets of Jerusalem,
now look and enquire,
see in her squares
if you can find an individual ,
one individual who does right
and seeks the truth,
and I will pardon her,
Yahweh says.
Although they say, ‘As Yahweh lives,’
they are, in fact, swearing a false oath.
Yahweh, do your eyes not look for truth?
You have struck them; they have not felt it.
You have annihilated them, for they ignored the lesson.
They have set their faces harder than rock,
they have refused to repent.
I thought, ‘These are only the poor!
They behave stupidly
Since they do not know Yahweh’s way
Or the ruling of their God.
I shall approach the great men
And speak to them,
For these will know Yahweh’s way
And the ruling of their God.’
But these, too, have broken the yoke,
Have burst the bonds.
And so, a lion from the forest will slaughter them,
A wolf from the plains will despoil them,
A leopard will be lurking round their towns:
Anyone who goes out will be torn to pieces—
Because of their many crimes,
their countless infidelities.”

Note: Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) wrote his INFERNO nineteen centuries after the writing of the Book of Jeremiah. In Canto I of the INFERNO, Dante, age 35, finds himself in a dark forest of worldliness and sin. As he struggles to escape, the poet encounters three beasts, a leopard (luxury and lust), a lion (pride) and a she-wolf (greed and avarice). Jeremiah 5:6 says that a lion, a leopard and a wolf will tear to pieces anyone who goes out. Luxury, lust, pride, greed and avarice dealt Jerusalem a bad hand of doom in the form of Babylonian captivity. Jeremiah, the Hebrew Diogenes, could not find one citizen of Jerusalem who acted justly and loved the truth. Jerusalem’s rich and powerful downtown leadership of Jerusalem proved to be as stupid as the weak and helpless poor.

Scoundrels In Downtown Jerusalem

The New Revised Standard Version translates the first noun in Jeremiah 5:26 as SCOUNDRELS. The first clause in that verse reads, “For scoundrels are found among my people;…” At least seven other translations that I know translate that Hebrew word as wicked men. A student in my class today suggested that “scoundrel” is a bit less harsh, even gentler than “wicked men.” Others in the class disagreed. So off to the dictionary we went. A SCOUNDREL turns out to be a “mean, immoral, wicked, unprincipled, dishonorable person. Scoundrel may very well have derived from the French infinitive, escondre which means “to abscond.” Scoundrels among other things are evil people who take from others.

This powerful passage 5:25-28 in the ever powerful fifth chapter of Jeremiah reads in the New Revised Standard Version as follows:
Verse 25: Your iniquities have turned these away, and your sins have deprived you of goods.
Verse 26: For scoundrels are found among my people: they take over the goods of others. Like fowlers
they set a trap; they catch human beings.
Verse 27: Like a cage full of birds, their houses are full of treachery; therefore they have become great
and rich,
Verse 28: they have grown fat and sleek. They know no limits in deeds of wickedness; they do not
Judge with justice the cause of the orphan, to make it prosper, and they do not defend the
rights of the needy.

What did these scoundrels do? What were their deeds?
1. They set traps for their fellow citizens.
2. The lay in wait to make money off them.
3. They stole their goods.
4. They lurked in waiting to catch them.
5. They judged not with justice.
6. They did not defend the cause of the fatherless.
7. They did not defend the poor and the needy.

What words describe these scoundrels?
1. They are fowlers, hunters who cage their prey.
2. They have houses that are full of deceit; their fullness are similar to their cages that hold people.
3. They are fat and sleek (shine).
4. The list of their evil deeds is without end, boundless.

What could be more appropriate than deposing two TEAM GOLIATH stooges on April 1, April Fool’s Day. At this moment, as I write for you, Attorney Steve Hall of the Baker Donelson Law firm is questioning Dave “Great news!” Wardell at the Troutman Sanders Law Firm. Wardell one of the muscles at Central Atlanta Progress earned his middle name when he responded to the Chief of Security at Georgia State University. Chief Mullins was so happy that homeless people would have no water, he had to tell Wardell. Wardell emailed for all the world to see, “Great news!” Wardell also headed Central Atlanta Progress’s program called “Wake Up Atlanta.” That program is now called, “Wake Up, Stay Up!” That is the program where Atlanta Police and Dave Wardell wake up homeless people who are sleeping on private property. Don’t let it be said that CAP doesn’t do anything for homeless people. They wake them up!

City of Atlanta’s goffer, Greg Pridgeon, three different years, 2007, 2008 and 2009 signed letters to DCA, the state’s Department of Community Affairs. The letters blocked funding each of those years. The letters came from Mayor Shirley Franklin’s office. The City’s Office of Grants Management all three years had given full approval for full funding to The Community at Peachtree-Pine. Pridgeon’s letters overroad that funding. Greg “bogus letter” Pridgeon is a pawn who may or may not have written the tortious interference letters. Starnes may have written them. It is not known if Pridgeon wrote the letters or if he could write them.

I will have the printed depositions in two weeks. I cannot wait to read “Great news!” What can he possibly say? But whatever he says, you’ll know because I’ll tell you. Don’t forget these community leaders are UNDER OATH, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help me god.
