Sinister City Phnom Penh faces Civil war on heels of Chuk Tema ouster

1/24/14
0900

Thousands of miles from it’s “sister city,”  Phnom Penh, Cleveland Tennessee is seeing it’s appointed leaders being used as pawns to civil unrest in Phnom Penh.

The city with it’s willingness to exchange favors with a leftover regime of the Khmer Rouge has left our sister city on the brink of civil war.

It appears our selection of this city as our sister city was a thwarted attempt for a ruthless regime to retain power using American influence and select corporatism as its wedge.

Last year our elected leaders decided to join hands with a ruthless regime of dictators with connections to the Khmer Rouge, left over from the Vietnam War that killed 10s of thousands at the barrel end of a gun and a sword. 

This same regime with blood on their hands performing unspeakable atrocities on it’s people found their way into our beautiful community at the request of our local spiritual, business and political leaders. 

As they were paraded around in town as the next savior of our City on the back of its business model shared with the Chamber, we were entranced and blinded to the filth that was left in their wake. It is still amazing to me that money, greed and cronyism can blind many seeking to gain from this forced venture, but it is what it is.

This welcomed regime graced our city and brought with them a swath of destruction and remnants of evil that rivals many ruthless dictatorial leaders throughout history. These same folks that allegedly sprayed three hundred innocent souls with water then electrocuted them, allowed and participated in child pornography, child slave labor, child and adult prostitution rings, child sex rings, outright murder, displacement of it’s citizens from valued property in the center of town pulled from their homes and dumped in rice fields miles away, held deeds to valuable property, ruination of property rights for personal gain, citizens arrested for speaking up, threats upon the lives of protestors, cooperation with international bodies such as the UN, sympathizers of the UNs Agenda 21…….etc were allowed to parade around our city unchecked and unquestioned by it’s leaders.

The Governor of Phnom Penh was on the ropes and dancing when he visited Cleveland Tennessee.

Our elected officials were pulled into the Governors web of deciet in an attempt to save his much coveted position in Phnom Penh government of which was floundering and in steep decline and had been since 2008.

The Governor and his court used our religious and political good will to attempt to retain his governors seat by extending good will and false promises while in Cleveland.

In 2008, the PM leaked a statement to the locals that if Kep Chuk Tema could not unite his country and somehow “fix” their problems the axe would fall. 

During this time the UN placed sanctions on this government and took away any foreign aid to build the country using the Agenda 21 model for atrocities committed against it’s people in the 10s of thousands. 

The UN via their councils stated that if Kep Chuk Tema could regain his pride and establish his country as moving forward the money would return and sanctions lifted.

Shortly afterwards and a well timed visit to Bradley County he forms a bond with  local religious organizations to show him favor and hopefully to retain his power. 

It is my opinion only, but I am afraid our local religious organizations may somehow have joined hands with the UN, the Phnom Penh government, developers and our local government to further develop the country on the backs of those willing to participate with monetary gain as it’s facilitator. The money trail may be a revealing factor as soon as those numbers are reported.

Monetary gain or not, this venture was not based on a relationship formed solely on mutual trust. 

Agenda 21 is bad policy and runs over anyone that dares stop or attempt to halt it’s implementation. The progressive plan to upbuild our inner cities, displacing citizens from their private property with the assistance of the United Nations in any city whether it be Cleveland Tennessee or Phnom Penh is bad policy. 

Selective corporatism is a death nail to private small business, deciding who is successful and who is not solely based on who you know or who you pay off royally is not a good way to build a country or a city. In Bradley County we do this deed extremely well.

Eventually, the citizens begin to
see the deception and realize that cronyism or you scratch mine I’ll scratch yours inside a good ole boy network is not the best for our community.

Shortly after Kep Chuk Tema and his delegation slid back to Phnom
Penh the City of Cleveland, in Chuk Tema fashion began it’s onslaught of similar tactics that Chuk Tema is now answering to. 

As the Cleveland regime, fresh off the Phnom Penh delegation visit began to leak and announce that South Cleveland was going to succumb to displacement of it’s citizens and the planned private property invasion by a greedy government was underway, in search of private property for placement of a self named Civic Center where homes used to be. Coincidence? Planned? Orchestrated with advice from Chuk Tema? We will never know but shortly after his departure our city began to see the same transformation as in Phnom Penh. 

Shortly after returning to Phnom Penh, Chuk Tema and many of his cabinet was dismantled and replaced by Governor Pa Soceatvong. He is a similar minded dictator with a harder line but has been asked to display a softer line to squelch a tenuous people from envoking a civil war, an uprising to suppress a tyrannical government. 

Sam Rainsy, the personable character that preferred to bow than shake hands with yours truly has been reduced to rubble since his return. 

He was recently photographed by reporters on the ground begging, crawling around asking for forgiveness for his bad policy. 

In the aftermath and return home it was reported that Chuk Tema offered H.E. Hun Sen 300,000 dollars in blood money to keep his position but he “sacked” him anyway! 

Wait a minute where did he get that money? He did just return from Cleveland Tn? Nah that’s really conspiracy at this time but who knows those rabbit hole chases have faired me well with exposing the truth. Hmmm? 

After all Governor Bill Haslam intended to use his NASCAR influence to treat them to a hot dog and a race at Bristol! 

I can make this stuff up guys! Follow the money is my old adage.

The bottom line is this. My Phnom Penh contacts on the ground are expressing a desire to overthrow this government of whom we call our sister, and stop the onslaught of radical, single handed, top down bad land abuse policy. 

Ladies and gentlemen, also in this country, the citizens of this country are speaking up and out, rallying around a  plan, formulating a takeover against the UN and Agenda 21. The tangled webs we weave often get exposed when the story is exposed and a microscope is applied. 

Sadly, as in Cleveland, these people are the recipients of this behavior and this scheme to level their homes and transform their country and we continue to assist their government because it makes us feel good and we get a mattress factory exported further exposing more children and adults to slave labor and encampment. 

Is turning out mattresses for a like-minded regime because a dictator was afraid he was gonna lose his position and power in our best interest. Sounds familiar doesn’t it?

Why are our leaders given a pass when it comes to this type behavior. Why does State Representative Kevin Brooks and Mayor Rowland who literally kissed the ring of a
ruthless dictator using religious connections to promote crony selective corporatism with an assist of the Chamber of Commerce while in step with the United Nations to implement Agenda 21? 

Remember last summer when our own local government turned on the citizens of Cleveland and Bradley County TN because they were notifying the residents in the area of  a plan to do exactly what Phnom
penh was doing that is causing a civil
war? 

An investigation was launched to lynch any one found stepping over that line? And the citizens of Bradley County had to hire attorneys to get a tyrannical Mayor off their backs and restore the US Constitution that had just been shredded.

How soon we forget! Do you see the stark similarities? Do you see why we call them sister? 

Sinister City would be the most appropriate name applied to this partnership. The devil definitely has a hand in this and the throngs of “do gooders” do not have to answer to men on Earth, their judgement will be from a much higher power!

The Cambodian delegations expenses were paid for by People for Care and Learning, the Phnom Penh government, and private donations. The paper trail begins here. Sadly, in my opinion,we have been reduced to a game of chess where the people of both cities are the pawns and big government and big corporatism are using greed as our motivator.

A recent email from Phnom Penh had this to say about the governor that visited our city ” Kep Chuk Tema of Phnom Penh city is about bribery, corruption, human vultures, unsanitary condition, traffic congestions, air polution. He was also responsible for the death of some 300 revellers on one New Year Day”…..” I can’t wait for the American Delegate to visit Phnom Penh and the nearby surrounding areas and offer their impression.”

The people of Phnom Penh see the game the American Delegation is
playing with their lives, only wish Clevelanders would do the same and expect the same change.

Kep Chuk Tema replaced as Governor!

Bradley County School board seeks liquor money from the “city with spirit”

Bradley County School board seeks liquor money from the “city with spirit”

1/22/14
0837 am

The City of Cleveland is disputing that the Bradley County School board has a right to revenue raised from liquor sales in Bradley County Tennessee.

Mayor Tom Rowland and the City of Cleveland are clearly living up to their cities new nickname. 

The nickname was recently submitted by it’s citizens and selected by a panel of bureaucrats. 

The aptly named  “City with Spirit” definitely has the spirits (money) and is living up to it’s moniker with no signs of letting her go.

Approximately 720,000 dollars is sitting in the coffers of Cleveland City from the sale of liquor and Bradley County wants half!

According to the Title 57 statute, the two entities should split the revenue 50/50.

Title 57 states that the revenue collected from the liquor by the drink tax in each municipality (county, city, town, etc) must be split 50/50 between the general fund for that local government and the schools that lie within that municipality. Sounds pretty cut and dry to me.

The City of Cleveland, the “city with the spirits” has implied to the County that this money is not theirs and that if you want it you are gonna have to sue to get it.

So this leads to several conclusions with a set of undesirable outcomes. This will undoubtedly cost the taxpayer dearly depending on the duration and depth of litigation, will diminish expected funding of our schools, and one committee after another will be formed to fix the problem with many hours spent resolving this issue instead of focusing on our more serious issues.

Can’t we all just get along? Cant the “City with the spirit money” let go of the spirits just long enough to help the kids? Huh?

Thrive 2055- 50 dangerous signs that a regional plan has been implemented in your community.

In Uncategorized on March 28, 2013 at 3:48 PM

50 dangerous signs identified within the Thrive 2055 regional growth plan.

Bradley County Tennessee and 15 other counties in 3 states within our mega region are busily preparing for a huge growth plan that will reduce our current system of representative government to a shadow government.

The many dangers signs are clearly visible but involve peeling back many layers to  be seen.

 Replacing our local government with a regional or quasi government run by globalists with a specific agenda to ultimately rob you of your property and personal rights, to me, is the most dangerous element within a regional growth plan.

With the acceptance of and our elected officials turning over their autonomy and ability to make decisions to a regional non representative government we in Bradley County and across the nation have seen our voice of representation at the local level go away and replaced.

Regionalism can be seen as a way to spread the cost of development across the region and cutting costs to some vested stakeholders.

The reality of a regional plan is a much darker picture under the surface.

We will see a transformation that will turn our community into a sea of rules and codes that will drown us in layers of new regulation.

Pay attention to these 50 danger signs and see if this is where you want our community to succumb.

Our community is actively changing and there are many who stand to benefit royally from their willing participation in this dangerous shift to a socialistic nirvana with the successful herding of the masses of population into a confined area with a wave of repression that we have never seen in modern day America.

Simply declaring regionalization as a non negative force, perhaps benign entity is naiveté defined. 

This thought pattern reflects to me that regionalism is not clearly understood and the mere fact that the many sinister components within this plan are being supported leads me to believe that our elected leaders are either compliant or do not fully understand it’s impact.

This undertaking either way will have a lifelong lasting effect on humans within our zone or region.

To see this and still support this is irresponsible and leads us to assume that our priorities are out of place and we have once again let the almighty dollar or federal handout direct our path.

Ponder this path and declare if this is where you want those who are leading us to take you, the taxpayer who will ultimately foot this huge bill.

1) We can assume a tremendous cost burden on ourselves and our children in the billions, perhaps trillions, into future generations. Ask a simple question, “What will it cost?” The answer will not readily be heard.

2) Our property rights will be in jeopardy by imposing stringent rules and code enforcement and many forced to leave by eminent domain or other means.

3) Our personal rights and choices will be restricted. The land of the free will come at a cost. Your choices will be made by the new regulations imposed upon you.

4) Expansive new land use regulations will strangle you with additional cost and headaches. Step outside these boundaries and you will surely feel the wrath. Just ask someone who has recently had it done to them.

5) New codes and regulations will be your reality. Non adherent inhabitants please move into the UGB, immediately.

6) Will be a shift of population to Urban Growth Boundaries into stack and pack housing with the increased crime and dereliction. The plan in some areas calls for 16 family units per acre. Not exactly a quality of life diamond.

7) Rural development will be discouraged with incentives to move toward the city center. If incentives fail, well you know, code enforcement.

8) Refusal or resistance to shift will mean differing codes will be enforced and accumulating fines will ensue forcing cash strapped farmers and rural dwellers to move and lose their properties. Few will be unable to survive the onslaught.

9) EPA, HUD and DOT and their plans for your property will be our new governing body. They come with their own set of rules and the regulations will compound making your survival in a sea of regulation impossible. Remember, no money given to our community comes without strings.

10) Our elected leaders will be reduced to figure heads with subsidies flowing steadily to persuade their vote. The near comatose state and deer in the headlights look would be comical if not so sad.

11) Rural areas will be claimed as wilderness areas under the control of federal government,  death zones established. Once inside this grasp, the fines will be heavy to either conform or move into the city. Also keep in mind, if you plan to move out of the area, you will just move into another region with it’s own unique regulation structure. This issue is not unique to our area, it is happening all over the world. Are you seeing the bigger picture yet?

12) Rural passes and permission slips will be issued to trespass or visit areas that were once yours. Your unique private property already has plans for it’s use. Just check out the Wilderness Projects already mapped out.

13) Roads and sewer systems will be left to crumble and living before displacement will be unbearable. Vacant and less traveled roads will be destined to rubble. Infrastructure dollars will be shifted inward to the UGB and the rural lands transformed to federal parks, activity centers and open space.

14) Your farm or the property will be government controlled or owned and  you, the former owner, will be given the option to either sale or produce what the government commands or take a small chunk of change or move out.  Have you heard of conservation easement? A dangerous tool of the globalist that are taking over our land.

15) Bikes will be your new choice of transportation and greenways and bike paths will replace roads and vehicles. 

16) Electricity will come at a premium and allocated to you from a defined use of pattern established by smart meter allocation with strict guidelines to stay within limitations. Your pattern of use established and a new pattern established to make you greener and more “sustainable!”

17) If fuel is available it will be at a premium and rationed with government vehicles and corporate farmers getting first dibs. Electric car “recharging” areas will pop up at local establishments within the Urban Growth Boundary.

18) Decision making of where your tax dollars will be spent will be in the hands of select NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) or appointed boards.

19) Self indulging, self serving corporatists and stakeholders will direct your tax dollars to their advantage. Many of these same people will be on the many appointed boards and councils set up that create the shadow government. The Chamber of Commerce a close ally and NGO of the United Nations will be directing this onslaught.

20) Stack and pack multi unit housing will pop up on every corner with freedom granted only to roam within your designated color zone or mega region. Have you ever watched the Hunger Games? Pretty close to our future.

21) Fuel restrictions on vehicles, mileage limitations, carbon taxes and fines levied. Tax on miles driven.  Little black boxes within your vehicles that will check your carbon output and upload that data to a central server and a tax or fine applied for that use.

22) Self regulating governess, loss of representation in government. State elected officials bought and paid for to implement changes within your zone. Our elected officials give the green light and leave all the decisions within that plan to bureaucrats. We have seen that locally as our Mayors have shifted that power to a foundation or regional board and our local guys knew nothing of it.

23) Power shift of decision making to NGOs and select bureaucrats and stakeholders with full power to implement. Doesn’t it sound awkward for those representatives of the people to just hand off all the work to a paid consultant group, council or board member? It’s happening now as you speak.

24) Coalition of World Business Council to make corporatism the norm with selective survival while rewarding failure. Big business is already driving the decision making under the direction of entities or NGOs like the Chamber of Commerce.

25) Community Development Block Grants CDBGs. Money with strings attributing to more regulation. This type of structure has brought out many who have plans to pad their own pockets.

26) Monsanto and Cargill controlling seeds and growth. If they control the seeds and ultimately the food, what else do they control, yes, you!

27) Food Councils setup to produce and grow locally with government assistance and direction our  regions food to fuel our food sheds. See the pattern being established here? Self sufficiency within our sector or region, which leads mento believe we are being herded into these mega regions for a bigger objective. Population control? Seperate or individual areas that are easily controlled? An isolation of the states?

28) Face lift grants to “make the community aesthetically pleasing with strict codes for development. Loads of cash and the rules
that go with it, after all, if we are getting billions should it at least look like it?

29) Control and decision making to EPA, HUD and DOT for growth planning. They are already placing their fingerprint, recently filing multi million dollar lawsuits against some of our local mom and pop  businesses, ie, Wright Brothers
Construction.

30) Deeper community debt, higher taxes and personal loss. Work permits to travel outside region boundaries. A few large corporate employers and very few jobs otherwise leaves you as a slave to corporatism.

31) A marriage to ICLEI with their many planning guidelines and connections to the United Nations, our soon to be International governing body with subtle yet solemn surrender of our sovereignty.

32) Strict Climate control penalties and fines. Restriction of heating and air comfort. If you harm the environment in any way, you will pay. Remember the recent lawsuits for cow dung, dust and milk spillage because the milk contain oils that are “not good for the environment?”

33) Oversight of the environment with stringent controls thereof. Mandatory solar or wind adaptation. Stiff fines for non compliance. An expensive alternative that leaves you no choice but to pack up and move to the city or urban area.

34) Transportation guidelines employed to rid our community of gas consuming vehicles. Bicycle rental pods all around and talk of bullet trains through your city.

35) Star Communities vying for approval inside a sustainable community. Again, jumping through hoops for a few dollars.

36) Ambient light and noise discipline in neighborhoods, multiple heavy fines. LEED lighting? Sound familiar? Perhaps we are already doing this!

37) Redevelopment of blighted areas, TIF projects, demolition of homes, initiation of “open spaces”, turning communities “green”, forced recycling.  300 homes in South Cleveland have been targeted and 12 others recently with houses already being taken even as I speak.

38) Churches supporting the UNs MDGs, Millenium Development Goals with paralyzation of our church leaders and a gradual prodding to accept sharia law into your community with the message of love, peace and hope. 

39) Seperate and equal governing councils per region. With full power to make all decisions within the Thrive 2055 plan.

40) Adoption of ICC codes. Yes International enforcement codes, already adopted and waiting in the wings.

41) Local Comprehensive plans drawn up, sent to locally elected officials for approval and authority handed off to bureaucrats like the Chamber of Commerce. Done!

42) Food Policy Centers within each region to define what is socially and environmentally acceptable for consumption.

43) Loathsome land use regulations and restrictions. PUD guidelines, aggressive annexation to engross and grow the Urban Growth Boundary.

44) Establishment of “food miles” to promote utilization of food sheds. Tracking what it means to get food to you within your region.

45) The promotion of community gardening to feed the collective with multi shopping options within your stack and pack dwelling unit. Locovores will be the new buzzword.

46) Small business closures and failures because of trends to protect large business with tax breaks and bailouts. Big corporation have the money and influence this giving you the disadvantage.

47) Shared project costs from city to city within the region. Increased burden on local budgets. Need a school in Georgia or Alabama?  Well, we have a big ole regional budget let’s pool together our tax dollars and send it to them. 

48) Shared school system and funds within region. Common Core initiation with Socialistic indoctrination overtones.

49) Code enforcement officers patrolling and prosecuting offenders like you and I, forcing us into compliance or lose our property. A societal emergency and policing system with collection of data to outer agencies such as Interpol. Initiation of NDAA, NIXEL to squelch the naysayers. Use of Drones for surveillance of your activity on your property with mega pixle picture uploads to only God knows who.

50) Environmental restraints dictating the length of grass, what you can grow on your property, garbage disposal, family gardens etc

This is not an all inclusive list but encompasses and provides a visual for our future under a regional reign.

You can easily see where our locally elected officials have gone awry. By giving their authority to these awkward sets of bureaucrats you can see our sovereignty float away. 

I have spoken to many locally elected officials and they overwhelmingly do not see that their simple vote of approval has placed us on this path to destruction. They have failed to look beyond the federal gifts of dollars and seen our future and what they have done. This is truly the saddest news.

Regionalism under the Thrive 2055 title will completely change the way we live and the financial future of our children. 

Speak out now against this bureaucratic takeover of our local and state governments.

Call your Mayors and elected representatives and tell them this is not what you want out future to look like.

Your silence on this issue is acceptance of these horrendous policies.

I believe this excerpt from the planners bible titled “Freedom of Choice” is a clear depiction of where we are headed

“People should be able to choose where they live and do business as long as they pay the identifiable costs of those choices and do not impose unaccounted for costs on other people or nature, now, or in the future.”

Please check out this video below by Don Casey, on the “Dangers of Regionalism” at a recent town hall meeting in Chattanooga Tennessee.

Bradley County leaders decision to tax and spend, not sitting well with taxpayers

In Uncategorized on February 26, 2013 at 10:52 AM

The Bradley County News room just received an email that I thought would make a very appropriate “Letter to the Editor” type blog to be addressed in this news outlet and shared with our 50,000 plus readers in 106 countries.

The relevance of the letter comes on the heels of a huge regional tax and spend program startup with meetings to be kicked off in the month of March.

The Local Chamber of Commerce and other NGOs will be gambling billions upon billions of your tax dollars on “economic development” for our 3 state, 16 County megaregional “Thrive 2055” growth program.

The enormity of this project will be horrendously expensive and we the taxpayer will get very little benefit and we will see very little oversight by our elected leaders as non governmental organizations run amuck with your hard earned tax dollars.

The biggest message I received from this email was our locally elected representatives are not concerned with reducing our debt, only receiving more grants to spur new spending sprees. That is a fantastic summation of where our leaders are directing us with this regional growth plan.

They all “say or preach” the right thing when the press is around or hog the print to fuss about DC when they are doing the same thing only at the local level and on a smaller scale.

It’s time the citizens and ultimately taxpayers speak up and say enough is enough. We do not like the direction our County is going and we want to preserve our children’s future not gamble it away for the next federal grant that may come our way.

I think it’s high time we take responsibility for our city and county. Act responsible and live within our means for a change, cut our debt instead of mounding it on our children’s backs, robbing them of their own ability to be prosperous.

Letter to the Editor:

Gentlemen,
Let me please begin by recalling some of your quotes that are the basis of this e-mail to you all.
 
Gary Davis quote from TFP article by Paul Leach on Jan. 11 2013:

“These are all very good signs that we are slowly but surely growing our way out of this recession and, at least in Southeast Tennessee, doing our part to generate the revenue we need without raising taxes”
 
Jeff Morelock quote from TFP article by Paul Leach on Dec. 5, 2012:

“Are we going to invest in future industry here and have growth so we don’t have to increase taxes, or are we going to tell industry we’re not interested in you coming here?”
 
J. Adam Lowe from a CDB article 2/22/2013 by David Davis:

He “absolutely despises the conversation about reducing the deficit. I want to eliminate the deficit. I want to reduce the debt”.
He said his parents would pay more in taxes if they knew it would go toward paying foreign debt.
“There is not trust it will go to that”. “Their concern is that it will continue to fund programs…”
 
Each of these articles were about different issues but I found a common thread running through each of them in your quotes. All of you rail against Washington. All of you talk about how federal debt is an issue and all you ascribe to the same basic political and economic philosophies as the solution.
 
We have our own ever increasing debt problem in Bradley County and none of you talk about it (at least publicly as I can tell). It’s always about how bad things are in Washington. As a proportion we are at least as bad as Washington in this county. Is it not hypocrisy on your part to attack Washington when our situation is approaching a mirror image? And unlike Washington, you can’t just print more money until it is as worthless as the the currency became during the days of  the Wiemar Republic just preceding Hitler.
 
Instead of remaining within the bounds of what is expected of your job you take on the task of “economic development” based on the principles of sustainable development, public/private partnerships and now regional growth. We have been at this kind of activity for over 20 years now? How has it worked for us? Have all these PILOT programs, incentives and business “attraction” produced a ballooning budget surplus yet that you have so hoped for? No it hasn’t and it never will. Do you know what else? I cannot find one study, one piece of documentation anywhere that tells us this unholy alliance between big business and bigger government works. I have multiple studies from the right wing (The John Birch Society) all the way to the left wing (The NEA) as well as many other legal and academic studies that show what you are engaging in always fails. I defy you to find me one study that shows the success of government directed economic development. Understand: I want to believe it works. I want to believe that I can turn all of life’s problems over to my government and they will create a “livable community” for me. The evidence does not bare that out.
 
“Whirlpool is still here.” “Look at Volkswagen and Amazon”: is not a study. Sorry. There are always silver shovel ceremonies and short term bubbles of economic growth (makes for great headlines and photo ops) but that bubble always bursts. Then it leads to more economic development which means more debt! You promote these deals, we provide infrastructure and services at no cost to these corporations. They take federal, state and local monies in these programs. The result: either they are long gone by the time it is time for them to begin paying their full tax burden or if they are still here, we are hit up for another PILOT agreement. You are all aware of cities that have gone bankrupt such as Stockton, Cal. The big lie in the media is that it was all about out of control public employee benefits, retirements and the SEIU. I know there is some truth in part. However the real issue in these California cities is their net bonded debt that they could not pay. This debt was created by redevelopment schemes and business attraction programs just like what is being unleashed in our area now. What makes you think you will do better this time? Regionalism? Thrive 2055 will take care of it?  
 
As stated earlier; none of you suggest addressing the spending side of the equation to solve our deficit issues and spending “needs”. All of you agree that your activity will generate growth, that will generate jobs, that will generate revenue. Once again, we have been doing this for a long time, where is the budget surplus? Where is the debt reduction? Why do you still despair over a lack of revenue?

Your quotes are essentially threats to the people: let us spend this money on economic development or we will raise your taxes. Those are the only options you give. Jeff Morelock, this is especially true of your quote. You clearly give no thought to spending reduction. You want to grow the tax base to match the size of this government that continually increases. How are any of you different than Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama? I can’t tell the difference. These are the ones you probably all criticize and complain about “strings attached” as you continually take money in federal grants and sit back and act appalled at their behavior.
 
Let me make it simple and if you disagree, then at least I said my peace to you.
PILOT programs, TIF and other Tax abatements are wrong for four reasons: 
1. People like free stuff. Whether it is an individual or a corporation. I don’t blame them: they would be stupid for not taking what you are offering because if they don’t, their competition will. Once people or corporations start taking free stuff, they will never stop and demand more free stuff. I asked another county commissioner this  question to his face one time: Where does it end? He shook his head and muttered “I don’t know”. How sad of a response; yet he still votes for all this.

2. Corporations that have tax abatements do not pay for the services they consume. If you want to perform an experiment: let all county residents only pay the school portion of their property taxes for 6 months and see how far you get. And you don’t even have to build us a new fire station or a new road! The NEA study takes my position because they know the safeguards written into the law to protect school taxes does not work.

3. As you start using our tax money as an incentive do you not think other municipalities, regional entities, etc… are doing the same against us? I know in business when someone cuts a price, there is always retaliation against the price cutter. Soon a price war ensues. Gary Davis: I know you understand this: That is why you were caught on a YouTube video at the Walden Club asking our local municipalities to “stop competing with each other, that’s the point”. You said: “We don’t need to compete”. In business, that is a clear violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust act; In government, I guess you can create any sort of Cartel you want. You must be really excited about Thrive 2055. This is a whole new layer of unelected, unaccountable government who make decisions on what businesses will go where and what areas grow. However, this didn’t work in ancient Rome where it was pursued by Emporer Constantine in Constantinople. It did not work in the Soviet Union, and it will not work here. Central planning ALWAYS fails and leaves a trail of debt and poverty. Again, I will share multiple studies if you are interested.

4. NGOs like the Chamber of Commerce and quasi-government organizations like the Industrial Development board shop our tax money to people and corporations. I know these things are not your creation but your quotes and actions show you are more than willing participants. Again, these are unelected organizations and individuals that have no accountability to the people of Bradley County but declare themselves as our “representatives”. There were some very smart people who wrote our various state constitutions who outlawed the very activity the IDB engages in. I know full well these industrial development boards were created to get around state constitutional restraints that forbid municipalites from lending their credit to private comapnies or individuals. Again, many of these things came into being as a result of the New Deal and are not your doing, but they are still wrong. You can choose to not go along with this if you want. 
 
In closing,
We are poor. Let’s start acting like it. Stop complaing about Washington when in truth Washington is your life blood. We rely on federal grant money and you know it as well as I do. Its’ not just funding our local government directly from Washington – you can even look at our local “growth”. For example look at Spring Creek which is being built with HUD 221 backed financing. This is not real, organic economic growth and you know it. These developments are built with non-recourse loans with a lower down payment than any mortgage today. This is a formula for disaster. That’s exactly what caused the housing bubble in the first place! However there is always a recourse – The American taxpayer!!

Show Washington how it’s done. You have your own debt problem to deal with.
J. Adam Lowe: If you are serious about debt, I suggest you offer up a proposal to raise property tax rates in the county with all the proceeds to go to a “lock box” for debt reduction. Think about it – you can be the Ross Perot of Bradley County!! Remember he ran on a platform to tax a gallon of gasoline $.50 that went right to debt reduction? I don’t think you will get that far in your political career by pointing attention to our local debt load but it’s worth a try.

The truth of the matter is that all of you don’t want more revenue for debt reduction: you want more revenue for more spending. My proof is the wheel tax proposal that failed. More money for more borrowing.

Gentlemen, please consider going in a new direction. Consider these words and I am happy to reconsider where I am wrong in my conclusions. Can you say the same about yourselves? I have nothing against any of you personally as I have not met many of you. It’s not any of you as a person that drives me to write this: It is the political and economic philosophies you are following that I find objectionable.
 
P.S.
Let’s start by pulling out of that exit 20 land deal that the city and county paid about $4 millon dollars too much for. I would like a copy of the property assessment for that land by the way. can one of you please scan and send your copy to me?
 
Thank you for your attention,

Bradley County Finance Committee mulls 16 cent property tax increase

In Uncategorized on October 25, 2012 at 8:10 AM

The County Commission via the Finance Committee is once again discussing taxing the citizens of Bradley County Tennessee.

The “what if” by the finance committee to propose yet another tax on the citizens in light of a recent overwhelming wheel tax defeat is beyond what my somewhat simple mind can handle.

Listen to the people! We do not want another tax! We are living in tough economic times! We are hurting. Struggling to feed our families and make ends meet.

Are we so comfy in our lofty elected and appointed posts that we do not see the ramifications? Why is it that everytime we need to fix something the first and second response is to turn to the peasants for a constant stream of seemingly endless requests on our revenue stream?

Some have told me that it’s only about 50 dollars on the average home in the county. Quit looking at it as a single hit on our budgets, it cumulative and it’s more than likely permanent. This 50 dollars gets piled up on another 50 dollars etc and eventually we can’t pay it anymore and we lose our property and the rights that go with it.

I was recently asked in an email exchange from one of our elected State Representative “Why don’t you provide some solutions?” In other words, stop your bitchin and do something about it! Really? Should I, a citizen, who just cast a vote that elects you to be my representative and you tell me to provide solutions to solve the problems of our state and local governments. My response is to that scenario is either resign or don’t run again and I gaurantee you we can put a citizen in that will represent the people and act on their request. Please forgive me this morning, I woke up in a rather gripey mood and I feel an overwhelming need to apologize. This type of malarchy just sets me off.

If the best you can do is shuffle a few line item scenarios around to make it look good on paper then perhaps your rent is up and it is time to elect someone who can put it all together and get our county back on track. This is a replacement tax for Gods sake, in case the County loses the 3,000,000.00 case over a sales tax issue. This tax will not even be attributed to knocking down our current debt load, but to replace money lost! It will not help our situation one bit, it just gets us back to where we were! What an excellent opportunity to have to cut costs within our county budget. What an opportunity missed to fix our problem with big government before we tax the citizens further. That sounded original didn’t it and it looks proactive, right? Another apology for my grumpiness.

You have to be one brick shy of a load to think this will be the only tax in our future. We are facing a 4 to 10 billion dollar growth plan in our immediate future. Who do you think is going to pay for that? Let’s not also forget we have already shifted close to a million dollars to an out of state company that has at best cut out a cardboard cookie cutter county growth plan that has drawn the ire of and disapproval of 73 percent of our citizenry. We, you and our children will be the beneficiary of this debt fiasco. Oh yeah, how could we forget the county mayors stealthy 16 county, 3 state regional growth plan that is well under way. Let me mention this while I’m here and I will elaborate later, this regional growth plan will take your county, Bradley Counties tax dollars and send it to another county to help them pay for one of their projects. How you like those apples, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

Is there some type of unspoken rule or edict that says our County has to take federal grant money in great amounts and more often than not turn around and ask the citizens to turn over increasingly greater amounts of their hard earned money? I am aware of Public Chapter 1101, but the immensity of it? Who dictates how big it has to be?

Keep in mind, I’m just a concerned citizen, with a keen sense of insight who happens to like to write. I am not a professor of finance nor a guru of all that is financial but let me ask one more question of our elected officials then I will shut up.

Why dont we fix our problems inside our own government house before we request more from the already unstable and stretched budgets of the citizenry? If someone can answer that with a logical response will get a big hug from me. Why not get our house in order first. Why not take the politics out of it and look at it from a human perspective?

King George and his court were ousted and our country reshaped some 250 years ago for this same type of behavior and blatant disregard for the people he represented. Sounds like it is time to do the same and vote these distinguished characters out of office before we can’t afford to live here anymore.

The message is simple, lean in closely, I am about to scream. NO NEW TAXES! PERIOD!

And I mockingly borrow from a quote by one our elected Mayors from the city as he screamed at me recently in one of his familiar rants, “If you are man enough,” and I add, “Put this to a referendum and let the citizens decide if they want to give you more of their hard earned money!” I am pretty sure the response will be the same as the wheel tax and the growth plan. This way it will leave you no doubt whether you are simply doing the job you were elected to do. No guilt, let the people decide for you. You know the old adage “to be representative of the people and for the people.”

Good day and I’m very curious to see if anyone mans up and steps up and not on the citizens of Bradley County Tennessee! I doubt it, but i’ve seen greater miracles.

Unfit to Rule, an old document must be revisited

In Uncategorized on October 18, 2012 at 9:32 AM

Nearly 250 years ago our founding fathers stood against a tyrannical oppressive government in the form of King George and suffered greatly at the hands of a King that cared not where his swift hand landed.

Today, again, repeatedly we find ourselves at a point in history where we find it necessary to make a stand against the same type of government that our original 13 colonies and it’s leaders faced. They saw fit to rise up and replace a form of government that was no longer representative of the people.

King George, as any elected or appointed ruler must be dissolved when that person is no longer a representative of the people.

Commissioners, Councilmen, Mayors, NGOs, State Representatives, State and US Senators, Governors and Presidents must be replaced at the ballot box when they become complacent and no longer representative of the people.

We as a country, a community stand at a crossroads where if we do not act the country we have will be no longer. Out free nation is standing at a crossroads. We have a fake president who is unfit to lead. We have many federal, state and local representatives of our country that are no longer in elected positions to uphold the constitution and assure the sovereignty of its people remain. Just as our forefathers saw the need to restrain and replace a King, we now must take the same steps and replace a King and his oppressive government once again.

This upcoming election and the ones soon thereafter will be the most important decisions we as a country will make in nearly 250 years. The conclusion is our current form of government is not a true representation of the people.

The document that separated the powers and saved this country is once again being called upon to provide guidance as we “overthrow” another tyrannical government. The pertinent and relevance to what our forefathers suffered and our current situation is uncanny.

Just as those that led before us, we as a people, and electing body must stand for what is right in our country and decide what we must do. Shall we see our country slide into the abyss or make a much needed stand against a government that has grown way out of control. Patriotism and loyalty to our country are the only thing that will stand between freedom and tyranny. We must decide and soon what will happen to our country and our community. We must act now!

When you ponder what to do at the ballot box carry with you the same resolve that our forefathers carried. Realize the power you have and the decision making power you have. Because of them, you have the ability to restore our form of government and you can change our country drastically and emphatically with a pull of a lever.

Please don’t stop reading here! Please take a few minutes and read the document below and compare the events of 250 years ago and see the relevance to the situation we are facing today.

If our country can’t be changed by a vote, will another revolution be the answer? I don’t have that answer but the question is important.

While reading below, place your self in their situation and ask your self have we once again repeated history and allowed a King or Kings to be the ruling party in our country? The comparison of what they faced and our current situation is eerily close.

You have the opportunity to decide if your leaders are unfit to lead. You have that power, now exercise that power!!!

The Declaration of Independence in Congress
July 4th, 1776

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

UN connections to our community, it might surprise you

In Uncategorized on September 26, 2012 at 7:35 AM

Every elected official should watch this video by John Anthony called “Agenda 21 for Public Officals.” It is a very simple explanation of how Agenda 21 has been brought to your community by these NGOs and how they are affecting your property rights and eventually your way of life.

Check out this video on YouTube:

NGOs, as explained and listed below shows you the massive involvement of the United Nations and the effort being exerted to completely transform our community.

Ask your self, “why are so many organizations partnering with the UN!” “Why in our community and in our neighborhood?” The answer is simple. Every community must have the infrastructure in place in every community in the world before a One World Government or a New World Order can be established. It’s a collaborative effort that is using common themes such as the eradication of poverty to promote social justice by redistributing the wealth of our country for the collective good of all!

The infrastructure, the growth plans, the right environment and a vast arrangement of people and organizations must be in place before the big plan is shifted into place. Pretty much the way I put a jigsaw puzzle together, fill in the borders then piece by piece fill in the middle till complete.

An NGO, according to the UN is an organization that is committed to the implementation of Agenda 21, a definition directly from the UNs Agenda 21 program.

Agenda 21: Chapter 27

STRENGTHENING THE ROLE OF NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS: PARTNERS FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
PROGRAMME AREA

Basis for action

27.1. Non-governmental organizations play a vital role in the shaping and implementation of participatory democracy. Their credibility lies in the responsible and constructive role they play in society. Formal and informal organizations, as well as grass-roots movements, should be recognized as partners in the implementation of Agenda 21. The nature of the independent role played by non-governmental organizations within a society calls for real participation; therefore, independence is a major attribute of non-governmental organizations and is the precondition of real participation.

http://www.un.org/esa/dsd/dsd_aofw_mg/mg_ngos.shtml

I thought it would be interesting for you to see the United Nations influence on businesses and organizations that we in Bradley County are directly or indirectly involved with. This list is by all means not complete.

The circle of influence on our society is growing daily. This overwhelming influence leads me to believe there is a reason it is so saturated in our city and nation. The UN wants to control every aspect of our lives and eventually set up a New World Order under One World Government with a One World Religion as it’s base.

Simply not knowing or refusing to believe that your organization is not a partner is no longer an acceptable answer. The implementation phase is well under way. It is time and we must hold those organizations that have partnered with the UN on Agenda 21 to be accountable for our country’s demise.

Long gone are the days of arguing whether Agenda 21 exists or is being implemented in our community. We know that it is so we must stop it. If our elected officials will not step up and stop this then let’s step up and replace them with those that will.

A list of assorted NGOs participating in the implementation of Agenda 21 in our community. A few are indirectly involved with our County but the majority have direct NGO status or are heavily involved with NGOs that are.

If you want to further research whether a company has involvement with the UN, simply google the company and the United Nations in the same sentence or go to the UN web site at http://www.UN.org, in the top ti
right corner just put in the company, name of a person or anything you choose and read the articles that the UN has created that prove their involvement.

Have fun searching. It’s not hard or it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out or I would never be able to see the connections.

Lastly, ask these organizations listed above why they have partnered with the UN as an NGO. The first answer may be you are crazy and whomever is saying this should be ashamed. Some may say it is a tax break or the guys upstairs, higher ups must have did that but regardless it was done. At least you have exposed their involvement and now continued participation is advocating their association and makes them guilty of assisting in the insidious destruction of our country from the inside out all in the name of the 3Es of Agenda 21, Social Equity, the Economy and the Environment.

Show them the list or link provided or your own research and ask them to explain their involvement. I am afraid many will just give you that deer in the headlights look and say “What are you talking about?” Have fun with it and see how many times you can get that reaction.

Brymer Creek degradation, a result of talk, little action

In Uncategorized on September 6, 2012 at 8:05 AM

From the beginning the warning bells have sounded as many citizens spoke up about the economic and environmental impact of such a large construction project like the Spring Branch Industrial Park would have on our community.

I think Matt Bentley said it best almost a year ago as the vote to go forward with the park was being initiated.

“I want you to think long and hard about the pros and cons of this development,” community member Matt Bentley said.

Bentley said he and others in the community did not feel respected in the process thus far.

The above concerns by resident Matt Bentley and other concerned citizens, including members of the Tea Party of Bradley County now sound like an ominous warning that got neglected resulting in our elected leaders rendering the seriousness of this debate to an afterthought.

Repeated warnings of possible degradation to the environment around this sight and to the creek were voiced for almost a year prior to this most recent negative impact to the states fifth cleanest creek.

You can clearly see, a year ago, where the ball got dropped although two of Bentley’s concerns were addressed in a paragraph added before the original resolution, presented by 6th District Commissioner Robert Rominger as reported in the Cleveland Daily Banner.

This added paragraph said steps would be taken to limit the impact on the community from the industrial park. The proposed steps include: “(1) sewer service to the proposed Spring Brach Road site will be provided from an existing 8-inch sewer line on APD 40, (2) buffers will surround building sites as shown on the concept drawing, (3) Spring Branch Road will be closed and will not be used for ingress or egress from the industrial park and (4) Harriman Road will serve as a secondary method of ingress and egress from the site and every effort will be made to prevent traffic use other than in an emergency.”

The resolution does not address the community’s concern about preserving Spring Branch, Brymer Creek and Candies Creek from storm water runoff as reported in the Cleveland Daily Banner 12 months ago.

Seventh District Commissioner Bill Winters said the Commission does in fact respect the community’s concerns. Winters said he shared concerns about protecting the area’s creeks.

“I don’t think any of us want an industrial park to negatively impact your community,” Winters said.

Mr Winters spoke of it, showed concern, went a step further to say he heard our concerns and was interested in protecting the area creeks and not negatively impact them, but it appears to be only talk. To my knowledge, no plan or oversight was planned beyond talking about it and acknowledging that the problem or potential exists.

We are always so quick to form a committee to study one thing or another, this would and could have been an excellent opportunity to say we are going to follow this through to make sure this didn’t happen to one of the cleanest creeks in the state.

Fast forward one year and we see Brymer creek and the surrounding area being inundated and degraded by muddy polluted stormwater runoff at the Spring Branch construction site.

During the Bradley County Commission voting session meeting Monday evening, Commissioner Ed Elkins said, “Last week I reported on a situation down in the McDonald area or Exit 20 area involving some stormwater runoff. Subsequent to the meeting last week, I did learn that it had been looked at by TDEC and the environmental engineers from the city of Cleveland and I was assured that corrective action was in place to correct that.” Mr. Elkins was referring to the stormwater runoff coming from road and industrial development projects near Spring Branch causing muddy water to flow into Brymer Creek as reported by the Chattanoogan.com.

Dan Rawls addressed the commission stating, “This situation out in McDonald is why the people of McDonald were opposed to this. I don’t know if anyone has seen the video of the degradation of that creek, but you were warned about it from the beginning. Who is accountable for this? The people who are affected by this are in the county. How can you allow that to happen to a waterway that’s that clean and that recognized? We were all told that would never happen. Who is accountable, the government, the people who did it or the contractors? What’s the answer here? What’s going on? We tried to warn you that this was going to happen. Why were the systems not put in place to have prevented this in the first place? I fought this thing for over a year and they’ve fought it longer than that. I think there needs to be some answers and some apologies to the people that live out there around that creek that warned you about this.”

Commissioner Elkins responded, “The permit for that project was issued to the city of Cleveland. They have responsibility for it. The contractor did not take the necessary precautions and that was unfortunate. Once TDEC was notified, they did get on it and got the city down there. It’s kind of like closing the barn door once the horse escaped, but I’m told they are taking precautions to do that now. Clearly someone dropped the ball.”

Commissioner Peak Jones said, “The city of Cleveland does have precautions in place for that process. Where it fell through, nobody knows.”

Commissioner Elkins commented, “The city annexed that area and they pulled the general permit for that project to do the road. So, Bradley County really has no jurisdiction over it. I guess we could file a complaint with the city because where the damage is being done is inside Bradley County. It falls under the city to explore it. I think it would be appropriate for us to file a complaint with them and ask them to do this.”

Commissioner Adam Lowe said, “We went to great lengths to have meetings with people in that community. I remember listening to a very healthy active discussion about the pros and cons and figuring out how to mitigate as much as we could. I’m having trouble recalling if anyone from the city was there but it was prior to the annexation. Right now, I’m a little shattered about going to such great lengths as a county commission to try to hear from the constituents in that area. It was such a high priority in my opinion. I feel like for some reason, somewhere it stopped being a high priority.”

May I add something here Commissioner Lowe, while it was evidently labeled a “high priority” that’s all it was, a label. It was all talk and little action. This is where we always seem to get bogged down in the political machine. We gladly offer talk because it can easily be quoted in a news article, so we can cut it out and put it in our scrap book. Getting our hands dirty and doing something on the other hand is a whole new realm we seldom like to explore because it takes a little more effort.

Commissioner Yarber suggested Commission Assistant Amy Moore provide more information regarding the matter and recommended further discussion at a future work session to come up with a thought process to put in place on how to handle the situation.

Chairman Alford said, “Me and Mrs. Moore will get in touch with people from the city regarding the matter tomorrow to try to get more information. That is, if they are willing to meet with us.”

With all due respect to the Commissioners, City Councilmen and women, both Mayors, the Industrial Development Board and Doug Berry of the Chamber of Commerce, one thing clearly stands out in the paragraphs above of the coverage of tbe meeting.

We love to give lip service to the general public and say what we think the people want to hear. We are all very quick to listen to concerned citizens and their gripes and complaints and then talk about plans to fix it. This debacle has left many scampering for someone to blame with hoardes of elected and non elected officials washing their hands of the responsibility of the pollution of Brymer Creek.

Instead of one person stepping up and committing to making sure not one more ounce of pollution flows into Brymer Creek, it seems the only viable and forseeable solution is let’s talk and talk and talk about it till we have talked enough then let’s talk some more.

But when all is said and done the end result is a once clean creek is now dirty and polluted and all we have done is talk about it to the point of nausea.

Talking without followup seems to have gotten us in this dilemma. Lip service without a plan is exactly that, lip service.

Who is to blame? Ultimately the voter will decide. They will mull over the previous four years of service and make an informed decision.

It would have been so simple to take our concerns, formulate a plan, follow up on plan, provide oversight of construction and make sure that when the first scoop of dirt was moved, no runoff was going to pollute Brymer creek.

The ball was dropped indeed. Many chose to talk and even more failed to execute.

These “esteemed” savages got the key to our city and we call them sister

In Uncategorized on August 24, 2012 at 11:17 AM

I am going to limit my words here to leave the emphasis on the obvious of what just happened in Cleveland Tennessee. Our Mayor Tom Rowland and our State Legislator Kevin Brooks and Governor Bill Haslam have welcomed one of the worst human rights offenders in the world to our city and we call them sister and give them the key to our city.

We were swept away with the pomp and circumstance as our Mayor bowed to a ruthless dictator while slipping him the key to our city. Where is the humanity in this? Where are the church leaders in our town that should be speaking up for these children and their parents being taken in and forced into slave labor, child prostitution and human trafficking? Why do we choose to turn a blind eye to the reality of our associations? How can Rowland, Brooks and Haslam not see this delegation for what they truly are? Why doesnt the rule of you are known by your associations apply here? How can we build these people up while ignoring their devilish and satanic actions?

I will tell you simply. We have once again sighted our vision in the almighty dollar instead of the humanity that suffers because of our actions. We can forget the action if it profits me!

We listen to others influential in all things business like the Chamber of Commerce. We instead ignore Gods voice of conviction that must lay heavy on these leaders hearts.

We have lost touch with the sense that while helping a few become wealthy while making a few spiritual leaders feel warm and fuzzy all over. The intended message has been eternally lost. Gods message to love thy neighbor and assist them when troubled has been watered down by an opportunity to outsource a mattress factory and spread the wealth. A child slaving over a mattress has become more important than giving that same kid a place to rest his head at night.

The assumed numerous children of Pol Pot living in Phnom Penh who have lived to tell the story of horrendous crimes and powerful regimes are now being further exploited by our elected leaders who would rather turn a blind eye to the iniquities of many for the promotion of self.

God bless our city and the misdirection it has received, bless our leaders as this regime is lifted to royalty. Please let’s take a look at the real people that we are gloating about and let’s put value on his excellency for what they really are……ruthless thugs with enough power to influence many to participate in the degregation of a generation of children and people and further chaining their feet to a communist/socialist regime that is being empowered by the elite a thousand miles away from them.

Please take the time to get to know these Cambodian delegates and sisterS of our city that have been given the key to our city by seemingly likeminded politicians who seem oblivious to the influence our support has on the futures of a generation where 50 percent of it’s population is under the age of 21. What a great opportunity missed to reach millions squandered on greed and pride.

Pleas take a few minutes to read from a news source inside Cambodia and Phnom Penh who see the light because it is shinin on them brightly.

I encourage you not to read the posted website if your stomach is easily upset or vivid images stick in your head for a long time that may produce PTSD side effects. What I read literally made me wash my hands with soap and water to remove the filth when I shook their hands! While you may choose to read with great hesitancy remember the greatest tragedy is how we have lifted this “delegation” up as the example of what our city needs to be.

Never forget these are my opinions only and are mine only. These thoughts reflect my interpretation of some very sad events that are happening in Cleveland Tennessee that are not being reported by mainstream media. I would be remiss and negligent to observe these atrocities and not report them. Please read and come to your own conclusions about our elected and non elected leaders. Let the shame fall where it may.

Essence of evil permeates Chamber of Commerce as a host of City Leaders bow to Cambodian “dignitaries”

I want to mention that Kep Chuktema has forcefully evicted over 3000 urban poor families from the center of Phnom Penh during his tenure.  He has been quoted in the national papers as saying that the urban poor “pollute our city’s beauty”.  Most recently he evicted roughly 1,500 urban poor to a location without any basic services:  No running water, bathrooms, health clinics, schools, etc.  Literally dropped off over a thousand families into a barren ricefield during the rainy season.  The UN Special Rapporteur on Housing (Miloon Kothari) has described the trends occurring in Phnom Penh as approaching that of an ‘apartheid city’.  He has employed police and soldiers to carry out evictions, armed with electric batons, guns, gas masks, and riot gear.  The last eviction he used roughly 1,000 such ‘security’ forces, carried out the eviction at four in the morning, and refused to allow UN monitors, NGO human rights monitors, or the media from observing the evictions.

The above passage was written by a Cambodian begging for someone to hear his or her plight. It is the cry of the Cambodian people! Save me!

The Cambodians reaching out because of these and other atrocities by them at the hands of Kep Chuk Tema. Memories of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge still exists and the remnants of that horrible regime have made their way to America, specifically Cleveland Tennessee.

Rape, child rape, sex crimes and trade that are only echoed in horror chambers, drugs, abuse of women, evictions, bribery, murder and mass corruption these are there cries!

The cry of a child prostitute offering her self for “one dollar”, “one dollar” speaks of darkness that only a few know.

I am dumbfounded by the level of acceptance by our church leaders, elected officials, NGOs, the Chamber of Commerce, the Mayor Tom Rowland and any others that may wish to participate in this endeavor.

I find it interesting, we criminalize patriots for questioning land policy in Cleveland, yet embrace a delegation that has evicted, raped and pillaged hundreds of thousands in phnom penh and we give them the key to the city who are known Socialists/Marxist/Leninist with close ties to the Khmer Rouge, go figure!

The worst of human rights abuses are on the record and they were committed by the man and his government that we accept in Cleveland Tennessee with open arms. The atrocities that Mr Garmon and Mr George were the work of the man they are parading around in our town as a hero to his people. In Phnom Penh it is quite different.

The United Nations, yes it’s hard for me to say that, but their human rights board is investigating his Khmer Rouge/Apartheid type activity all in the name of sustainable economic development.

Why is he here in my opinion? The World Bank has cut off all his money for land development because of his human rights violations. So he accepts the offer from God fearing, freedom loving Americans that are more than willing to save the world. So, Mr Chuktema by building little cities, with the cooperation of the US of course shows some good will and is able to get his World Bank financing back. At the same time the Chamber of Commerce, the Mayor and Planners might get a business out of it!

This is truly the saddest part of this all. Our Church leaders and elected leaders that we trust to protect our sovereignty and freedoms end up giving them to a Buddhist/Socialist/Marxist/Leninist regime.

The people we are entrusting to lead us out of the economic downfall are the very ones that are doing the most to prevent a free market and capitalism to work. Let’s share the wealth! That is the game. Have you seen pictures of Phnom Penh lately? Do you think there is a shortage of cash in this area that needs or can get a step ahead by the generous tithing of a few hundred church faithful? 2.2 million to hand to a dictator that has the equivalency of a King and his court? To build 800 or so homes for a tyrannical leader that does not see the bad in evicting 200, 000 poor people from his kingdom? Why has he done this? It is to secure a sustainable future! Where if you offer enough money I will gladly displace thousands if your dream is to build a strip mall or a high rise apartment for the poor you just dumped in a rice paddy in the middle of nowhere. How can our churches and elected leaders participate in this apartheid! I thought we were about helping the poor, not benefitting from their demise.

Read the many excerpts below! Many from first hand reports from Cambodians who have suffered greatly from the entourage that has invaded Cleveland Tennessee recently. The poor in these countries need real representation, not a gaggle of yes men who only see evil in those that try to keep America and our county free. I was told by one of these high ranking church officials that these were only homeless people who live in cardboard boxes on the street near the airport. Wow! God bless America! We have seen what the mighty dollar can do to corrupt a city like Cleveland Tennessee, see what greed and seeking power can and has done to Cambodia!

Read below with an open mind and ask your self why would our spiritual leaders be supporting such an awful regime? I am afraid our leaders have chosen to look beyond the human plight and found a few dollars to replace the sins of many!

These below are the same ones that our City Mayor, State Legislator Kevin Brooks, the Chamber of Commerce, select church leaders gave the key to the city to.

Read below and look at the magnitude of this tragedy.

Eat Dog meat poor people! “Chuktema also said dog meat should be sold openly in the markets because there is a demand among poor people who eat it. “They don’t have [nice] wine, but poor people can enjoy their dog meat with palm juice wine,” Chuktema said.

God bless our county and our country if we have leaders like this making our decisions for us. Someone please question the lack of judgement in our city and county. How can we support such wickedness while acting so faithful to God. God please forgive these men who have been blinded by Satan and are playing games with the devil at the cost of many lives inside Cleveland Tennessee. Please lift the blinders from them and have them ask for forgiveness and to truly see the light.
