Could the oppressed ever find relief from the present-day Judges and Counselors? Isaiah of Jerusalem says, “Yes!”

Isaiah 1:24-28
“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.'”
Isaiah 32:5-8
“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.”

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.

Exhibit 26 features five (5) emails among CAP President A. J. Robinson and CAP Project Manager, Richard Orr and Sammy Williams, Atlanta Chamber of Commerce.

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.

Baker Donelson Attorneys Steve Hall and Bob Brazier filed Exhibit 13 along with 28 other exhibits in Judge Craig Schwall’s Superior Court of Fulton County, Georgia, on July 11, 2014. These exhibits show tortious interference, collusion, wrongful possession and defamation on the part of these three defendants.

Emory University and Emory health Care, Inc. are implicated and accused of the same charges; however, that case is being heard in the Superior Court of DeKalb County After this hearing Judge Schwall ruled making the way clear for Manny Fialkow’w Premium Finance Solutions, Inc. to file a dispossessory motion on behalf of defendants Fialkow, Central Atlanta Progress and Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, Inc. These three defendants, the order states, face 8 claims that should be heard before a jury of their peers. Judge Schwall’s order affirms Special Master Frank Strickland’s 17 page order that recommends this lawsuit go to trial. You won’t read this in Rhonda Cook’s front-page AJC piece that tells only of the clearance for the dispossessory motion. Rhonda Cook reports as usual only the party line. That shoddy kind of reporting requires neither research nor the whole truth.

Manny Fialkow’s Premium Funding Solutions and AJ Robinson’s Central Atlanta Progress and Atlanta Downtown Improvement District are defendants in this lawsuit. Exhibit 13 features these two conspirators plus a third collaborator named Michael Dinerman. Dinerman is not a defendant; however, he’s all over the subpoenaed documents as a collaborating conspirator. If Manny comes, can Dinny be far behind? Baker Donelson attorneys have entitled Exhibit 13 “Dinerman-Fialkow email.” The 3 e-mails are quoted verbatim in the order in which they were written.

Next Sunday, February 2, 2014, Super Bowl XLVIII (48) will be played at the Metlife Stadium in the Meadowlands of New Jersey. This stadium is the home field of the New York Giants. Some people believe that the late Teamster Jimmy Hoffa is buried in concrete in one of the end zones. This playing field is not too far from the much talked about George Washington Bridge that spans the mighty Hudson River. Weather vultures are speaking of a blizzard for that day; other media goons are talking traffic snarls.

Residents of the Peachtree Pine Community watch with great interest all Super Bowls. Some 300 plus homeless African American men at Peachtree Pine watched Super Bowl XLV (45) played on Sunday, February 6, 2011. Few of those men remember who won that game or where it was played. However, many of them remember a sermon preached that day at All Saints Episcopal Church at the corner of North Avenue and West Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia. The sermon was delivered on Super Bowl Sunday, February 6, 2011. It carries the title, “Doing Justice,” and it was delivered by All Saints’ CEO, Rector Geoffrey Hoare, that’s Hoare with an “H.” All Saints Episcopal Church’s website published Rector Hoare’s diatribe. I assume the sermon can be read still. It may have been removed.

My blog posted a response to some of the Hoare lies about Peachtree-Pine Community on March 23, 2011. The men who live now at the Peachtree-Pine Community watch like Jeremiah’s almond tree in chapter one to see if Rector Hoare might give a repeat performance next Sunday, Super Bowl XLVIII (48). The men who polish the floors and clean the toilets and showers and scrub the sinks and empty the trash and case manage hundreds of women and children weekly want to know if he will say again that we live there in squalor and that their living quarters are filthy and unkempt. Hoare stated that the place is unsafe and dangerous. He’s right about that: that’s true some of the time of the outside, not inside, where drug dealers and pimps and whores, (that’s whores with a “W”) operate most of the time without any police interference. Our security volunteers say that for every Atlanta Police arrest there are fifteen drug deals in the open broad light of the day.

But one long block away, down the street at Renaissance Park there are no such shenanigans now because the neighbors around that park have DEMANDED that all drug users and dealers and prostitutes and pimps be arrested. The Community at Peachtree Pine has no such protection. I’ll bet a six pack of RC Cola that Woodruff Park and The Hurt, home of Central Atlanta Progress and ADID IT has that protection. Another six pack says that CEO Hoare’s business has police protection, business community protection, Peachtree Corridor Churches’ protection, Chamber of Commerce protection, United Way protection, Atlanta Regional Council protection, Atlanta City Council Protection, the Mayor’s Innovation Delivery Team protection and Farmers’ Insurance protection. One must ponder if Rector Hoare has the protection of THE EVERLASTING ARMS.

Read my March 23, 2011 piece and Hoare’s February 6, 2011, sermon preached from a Christian pulpit in an Episcopal church. Then wait for Super Bowl sermon next Sunday to see if Cicero delivers again.

Seven worms a squirming

Six vats of Kool Ade

Five golden necklaces

Four fingers shooting the bird

Three bogus letters signed Greg Pridgeon

And a family living in a pear tree.


Note:  While many readers are enjoying the Christmas cheer in my recent pieces, they are at the same time wondering who are these people and what is the significance of their various gifts sent to “me.”  Following the Twelfth Day of Christmas, I’ll publish a glossary explaining the names, their middle names and the significance of their gifts.  For today’s Seventh Day of Christmas, I will say that A. J. Robinson is the top man at the downtown “muscle” called Central Atlanta Progress.  The late Dan Sweat, while he was president of Central Atlanta Progress, and I shared the podium at the Buckhead based Atlanta Junior League.  Imagine that!  During a friendly conversation before we spoke, Dan said to me that mayors of Atlanta come and go, but CAP remains constant.  His expression told me precisely what he meant.

Robinson was deposed twice in the ongoing law suits against the City, CAP, etc.  I was present for one of his grillings.  I have a garden that today boasts thriving arugula, Swiss chard, kale, lettuce, totsoi and collards.  I buy earth worms from TRULY LIVING WELL on Hilliard Street in downtown Atlanta.  The worms squirm vigorously whenever they are exposed to the light.  The light makes them dig into the dirt for cover.  I have read thousands of pages of TEAM GOLIATH depositions:  Debi Starnes, Richard Orr, Horace Sibley, Shirley Franklin to name a few.  What these leaders of our city said under oath brings to mind my garden.

Naboth’s Peachtree Pine

October 26, 2011

I Kings 21:1-20 (New International Version from THE HEBREW BIBLE)

Some time later there was an incident involving a vineyard belonging to Naboth the Jezreelite. The vineyard was in Jezreel, close to the palace of Ahab King of Samaria. Ahab said to Naboth, “Let me have your vineyard to use for a vegetable garden, since it is close to my palace. In exchange I will give you a better vineyard or, if you prefer, I will pay you whatever it is worth.”

But Naboth replied, “The Lord forbid that I should give you the inheritance of my fathers.”
So Ahab went home sullen and angry because Naboth the Jezreelite had said, “I will not give you the inheritance of my fathers.” He lay on his bed sulking and refused to eat. His wife Jezebel came in and asked him, “Why are you so sullen? Why won’t you eat?”

He answered her, “Because I said to Naboth the Jezreelite, ‘Sell me your vineyard ; or if you prefer, I will give you another vineyard in its place.’ But he said, ‘I will not give you my vineyard.’” Jezebel his wife said, “Is this how you act as king over Israel? Get up and eat. Cheer up. I’ll get you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.”

So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, placed his seal on them, and sent them to the elders and nobles who lived in Naboth’s city with him. In those letters she wrote: “Proclaim a day of fasting and seat Naboth in a prominent place among the people. But seat two scoundrels opposite him and have them testify that he has cursed both God and the king. Then take him out and stone him to death.”

So the elders and nobles who lived in Naboth’s city did as Jezebel directed in the letters she had written to them. They proclaimed a fast and seated Naboth in a prominent place among the people. Then two scoundrels came and sat opposite him and brought charges against Naboth before the people, saying, “Naboth has cursed both God and the king.” So they took him outside the city and stoned him to death. Then they sent word to Jezebel: “Naboth has been stoned and is dead.”

As soon as Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned to death, she said to Ahab, “Get up and take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite that he refused to sell you. He is no longer alive, but dead.” When Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, he got up and went down to take possession of Naboth’s vineyard.

Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite: “Go down to meet Ahab king of Israel who rules in Samaria. He is now in Naboth’s vineyard, where he has gone to take possession of it. Say to him, ‘This is what the Lord says: In the place of where dogs licked up Naboth’s blood, dogs will lick up your blood – – yes, yours!”

Comment: The similarities between the conspiracy to steal Naboth’s vineyard and TEAM GOLIATH’S conspiracy to steal Peachtree Pine are myriad. Imagine a modern play with a cast chosen from the members of TEAM GOLIATH. Who from among those players would have the part of King Ahab? The Hebrew Bible describes him as “sullen” and “angry” and “sulken” and “refused to eat” when he couldn’t take what he wanted.

Who from the mighty Atlanta TEAM GOLIATH would play King Ahab, one of Israel’s most atrocious rulers? Who is the king of Atlanta’s TEAM GOLIATH? Could it be Jack Hardin, one of the chairs of United Way’s Regional Commission, who reports to have beds ready for all the men who will be leaving Peachtree Pine? Could King Ahab be played by Horace Sibley who ended “homelessness” in downtown Atlanta as we know “homelessness”? Where is Horace? Have they found him? Perhaps he is looking for his computer at Georgia Tech.

Where does A. J. Robinson fit in the TEAM GOLIATH hierarchy? Is he coaching the Mayor on how to handle Troy Davis Park. It’s difficult to guess who might play the part of King Ahab.

And what about Jezebel? Not so fast, do not answer the obvious. Debi Starnes might not be the only candidate for that part? Don’t forget Queen Shirley Franklin of the golden locks. Those tresses now do the bidding of privatizing everything for the Cousins Empire. And don’t forget the HUD darling, Dr. Renee Glover. Has she fallen out of favor with our Mayor? Can’t find Horace! Can’t find Debi! Can’t find Renee!

Several other women could play Jezebel. There’s the warm Peggy Denby. Or Roman Catholic Nun Jane Garety of Mercy Housing might do. Her e-mail to a fellow worker at the nun-run Mercy Housing, Inc. boasted that Cap and the City of Atlanta would be in the debt of the Nuns when they joined Manny Fialkow in foreclosing on The Pine. Don’t forget the congenial Amy Zaremba of Gateway fame. Any one of these beauties could dream schemes to steal a little vineyard.

The letter writers could be chosen from dozens of the GOLIATHITES. Those thousands of e-mail court documents qualify many as letter writers. Greg Pridgeon could play the letter writer. He signed the three annual letters that blocked City funding after Atlanta’s Grants Management Office had approved Task Force funding. King Ahab had a seal that Jezebel used on her letters falsely accusing Naboth. Mayor Franklin had a seal that Starnes used to murder Peachtree Pine.

Vince “in a godly manner” Smith certainly qualifies as a letter writer. One pleasant day months ago two Task Force board members, Carl Hartrampf and Chuck Steffen, led a tour of Peachtree Pine that included Rev. Vince “fortnight” Smith and an official from Atlanta United Way. Hours later Smith “in a godly manner” emailed his buddies of the deplorable conditions at Peachtree Pine. He mentioned something about his heart breaking for the men there. Then there is Rector “Super Bowl” Hoar who from his Episcopal aerie bore false witness of the “squalid” Peachtree Pine. That truth teller could write the letters to the Elders and Nobles and Scoundrels invited to the table, Naboth’s death table.

The biblical account of the murder of Naboth has only two “scoundrels” present at the table. TEAM GOLIATH beats that number by scores. Legions have lined up to falsely accuse The Pine and The Task Force for the Homeless. Just last weekend Dr. Chuck Steffen had to point out to AJC reporter Christian Boone that he had reported only HALF the truth concerning mishandling of funds. What Boone did was to quote his own article written years ago with reporter, Willoughby Mariano. Imagine a writer using himself as his source and the source being inaccurate all the while. Booth introduces the subject of mishandling money. But he fails to mention that a HUD investigation resulted in a HUD official saying that not one cent of millions of dollars had been mishandled. Right on AJC. And this is the investigative reporting the Narrow uses to advertise itself? Thank you Christian Boone. We have had reason to believe better of Boone. Oh, well! The list of people who could play the scoundrels in our play is endless.

Naboth was stoned to death. His property was given by King Ahab. That’s what Kings do. The elders and nobles concurred.

The powers and principalities of Atlanta will use a bottom feeding developer working hand in hand with nuns and doers of all good like United Way and makers of policy like The Chamber and lights in the community like Central Atlanta Progress to evict 700 predominantly Black homeless men from their home on sacred Peachtree. That’s what kings do as the elders and nobles give silent consent.

Incidentally, friends in Europe as I write this are watching on YouTube Atlanta Police (part of the 99%) arrest demonstrators on the night of October 25, 2011. Join me in being a proud Atlantan. And as Reverend Joseph Lowery says, “And the beat goes on.” Do I hear dogs barking?
