Prince George’s County Corruption Continues and Must End ASAP.

When a small clique of crooks have imposed themselves, plundered the county’s resources, created zombies through substandard education, dirty water and food and committed crimes and subverted democracy for too long, a lot of citizens believe tyranny is normal.

When tyranny is normalized, citizens start finding justifications why they are poor, homeless and hungry while the despots, con-men and con-women have everything. Citizens begin to hurl abuse at freedom fighters because they feel impotent. “God created rulers and made us poor,” they say.

“If you can’t beat them, join them,” they yell, not understanding that “joining them” means becoming their slave and accepting the subhuman condition that they have institutionalized. Those yelling such nonsense are too scared to admit that “joining them” only means surrender. Accepting that you are a slave.

After despotism, conman-ship and criminality have been normalized and institutionalized the way they are in Prince George’s county, it is a duty of all self-respecting patriots to fearlessly, consistently and ruthlessly do everything within our power to uproot that system of bad governance. Use all means necessary.

According to a concerned parent who was in a meeting at Laurel High School about Prince George’s County Public School (PGCPS), she stated that, “…The system is REALLY broken: curriculum, under-staffing of teachers, overcrowding with students, old buildings, supplies, late buses, HVAC problems, resources, rezoning & very underfunded. The children deserve better. I believe there is corruption,” she concluded.

“Corruption” is just one symptom of a more serious societal illness. The GERM that causes the illness is the CULTURE OF IMPUNITY which creates the belief that one is above the law and protects those who commit serious crimes like murder, steal elections or loot public resources.

To significantly reduce corruption we must first and foremost remove from positions of power and authority those who believe that they are above the law. We must punish to the full extent of the law all criminals, thieves and those abusing power STARTING with Dr. Monica Goldson.

Shouting or singing about the “fight against corruption” while expecting the DEAN OF IMPUNITY like Dr. Monica Goldson to be the one leading that fight is like a fox guarding a chicken house. Those disobeying court orders, bribing attorneys, court officials and subverting the Constitution cannot fight impunity.

This last week, we filed our case to the US Supreme Court and more is being done elsewhere. After we wrote to the county executive Angela Alsobrooks concerning the violations on September 4 and on October 4th, 2019, she arranged a series of meetings including yesterday, October 21, 2019, in order to help with the cover ups currently in progress in Prince George’s County led by PGCPS CEO Dr. Monica Goldson. There also been a variety of public relations exercises involving the despots in order to derail justice. We are demanding a proper federal investigation on these issues.

The despots and their collaborating con-men and con-women don’t care about you. They believe that you and many of us in the struggle are not human beings!

It’s now time for the opposition, the clear and level-headed in the democratic and republican parties – if such still exist – businessmen and women and the tax-paying and law abiding in Maryland to demand that an end be brought to this charade.

We need leaders who can lead – who are willing to lead – because they’re capable and we need these leaders to inform the mobs that they will not succeed in turning the Prince George’s county into another chaotic and mindless county, a failed county with a failing school system being used as a cash cow, purely because it’s their right to do so.

There are only so many taxpayers, there is also only so much that they will bear and that needs to be firstly addressed.

The corruption, the crime and general neglect of the county, together with the pampering to the whims of the masses, are turning Prince George’s county into a quagmire of racial, class and economic disharmony which the real owners and drivers – the taxpaying citizens who enable the county to grow and prosper – will eventually turn their backs on.

Call your Elected officials now and the media. Demand an end to this calamity by the county officials!

ORGANIZE! MOBILIZE!

Never give up. Never surrender. Never compromise.

Parents upset over potential school re-zoning in PGCPS as disarray sets in.

7e06cda9-9dd6-42cc-b66f-c23e20c00eb5_360x203BOWIE, Md. — Whitehall Elementary school is overcrowded, according to Prince George’s County Public Schools.

The district’s solution? Re-zone that area to funnel students into one of the four other nearby elementary schools starting in 2020.

Some parents, however, are not happy about the potential change.

“The way that they rolled out this proposal is just in poor taste,” Emebet Booker, parent of three, said. “People made a big investment. I mean, we’re paying a premium to live in the school zone that we’re in.”

Booker has children in fourth and first grade at Whitehall, and one in pre-school. She said if the changes go through, she’ll have to take her kids to three different schools.

Another parent, Ericka Moten, said she and her husband closed on their new house last Thursday because of it feeding into Whitehall.

She has a four-year-old child, who would be starting kindergarten there in 2020.

“We were strategic in our decisions in fact-finding for our house,” she said. “We picked the house—we love the house—but also because it’s zoned for Whitehall.”

Parents said Whitehall Elementary consistently outperforms other schools in the district. It earned five out of five stars on the Maryland State Department of Education’s 2018 report card.

The proposal would redirect students to one of four other elementary schools:

  • Northview Elementary
  • Rockledge Elementary
  • Tulip Grove Elementary
  • Yorktown Elementary

Parents said they agree that overcrowding is a problem that needs to be addressed, but some are unhappy with the pace at which the district is addressing it.

“I’m for addressing that issue, but there needs to be a task force,” Booker said.

The school board representative for her district, Raaheela Ahmed, said she plans to suggest a task force to the superintendent in a letter she’ll be sending this week.

“I think there’s a sense of urgency around this, because it’s such a permanent decision that needs to be made,” said Ahmed. “And, at the end of the day, it lies with all of us that are in education, that are in public service.”

The next discussion session will be held on October 24.

The first reading of the proposal to the Board will be on November 7.

Prince George’s County Corruption and predictions

Dr. Monica Goldson current CEO for Prince George’s County advanced corruption for years. #DespotsMustFall

As a long suffering resident of Maryland focusing on Prince George’s County who has seen numerous superintendents promising reform, here are my predictions:

  1. The scandals in PG County schools will continue and Wapo will write about them (regularly) as time goes.
  2. At the end of her contract, PG schools will be performing no better than they are today. If the past is any guide, they will be worse. Reforms in PG County usually make things worse.
  3. The new superintendent will leave her job under a cloud of corruption/incompetence. Mega corruption is already underway and no newspaper or blog has published anything because of fear.
  4. More corrupt elected officials will either resign on their own or be arrested for ongoing mega corruption involving the school system or other county agencies.
  5. “pay-to-play” culture at Prince George’s County will continue at higher rate with political donations from real estate developers seeking county approval for their building plans.
  6. Bribery, kickbacks and extortion schemes involving elected officials and others tied to the Prince George’s County development will continue flowing like water.
  7. Union Executives will continue to facilitate organized schemes to derail justice while paying off attorneys but this time will be arrested.
  8. Well connected politicians will continue to give bribes as charitable or political contributions.
  9. Developers will continue to seek opportunities to make the country more corrupt so they could cash in. But in the right circumstances, they’ll either decide to jump ship or simply have no choice but to tell the truth. It’s already happening, and there’s nothing county Executive Angela Alsobrooks can do to stop it.
  10. Board members who have embraced public corruption and have been compromised will not win another term. Eventually they might be arrested for accepting bribes and jailed for being in bed with corrupt executives.
  11. At the end of the day, PG schools will still be the worst in the state of Maryland (with the possible exception of the city of Baltimore.)

Push PG NAACP to do right thing at its meeting Thursday, 7 pm in Hyattsville

pg_county_naacp_chapter_president_bob_ross-1880x1254

Bob Ross ~ PG NAACP President is under fire and accused of  facilitating cover ups.

Greetings activists,

PG NAACP and  MD NAACP, Which side are you on?

Neither organization — NAACP PG, nor NAACP MD issued any strong statement of protest about ten police officers who killed Mr Shand.

This is the question to ask the PG NAACP at its annual meeting Thursday 7-9, in Hyattsville.

So far PG NAACP has put out only a mild statement (and this was done as a reaction to being misquoted by WTOP).

I urge members and others to bring up our issues at PG NAACP’s meeting this Thursday, October 17, 7 pm in Hyattsville.  Invite at bottom of this email.

Attend the meeting to encourage PG NAACP to demand or even favor:

*  Repeal MD’s Officers’ Bill Of Rights LEBOR

*  Insist that Police Use Body Cameras

*  Police departments use milder ways to corral suspects.

*  Effective training of police.

*  Question trusting the Prince George’s Police Dept.’s investigation unit to do a rigorous and fair investigation.

Supporting info:

*  Repeal MD’s Officers’ Bill Of Rights LEBOR

Here is the 2015 Baltimore Sun article on LEBOR by the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland.

The PG police and the first Hyattsville policeman at the killing were not using body cameras.  The use of body cameras by Hyattsville policemen is discussed in “Police story of Leonard Shand’s death called into question by [Hyattsville City Councilor Joseph Solomon]” at

Prince George’s County says there’s no money for body cameras because the cost is 2 million dollars.   But:

The Prince George’s County Government spent just over $2 million Tax Dollars from December 2018 thru July 31, 2019 defending Racial Discrimination and Retaliation under County Executive Alsobrooks.

Dr. Rashawn Ray, Associate Professor of Sociology, Executive Director, Lab for Applied Social Science Research, University of Maryland, also Brookings Institutionposted:

“I just want to note that my colleagues and me at the Lab for Applied Social Science Research (LASSR) at the University of Maryland conducted a study on body-worn cameras in Prince George’s County. We found that residents across race/ethnicity and social class overwhelmingly support the county having body-worn cameras.  …

“The Problem

American police are rethinking their training, procedures and non-lethal tools, specifically to handle encounters with the mentally ill.

The Police Executive Research Forum, an independent research organization devoted to improving policing, reports that handling encounters with the mentally ill is a national crisis.

A Washington Post investigation [of]fatal shootings by the police in 2015 [found that] nearly a quarter of the incidents involve a person who was mentally unstable.”  (Emphasis added.)

I’m concerned about the recent lowering of standards for new police hires noted in

“Having Eight On-Leave [Hyattsville Police] Officers Adds To Staffing Shortage (Updated 10/3)”

https://hyattsvillelife.com/eight-on-leave-hcpd-officers-adds-to-staffing-shortage/

Excerpt:

“Over the last year or two, according to [Public Information Officer and Acting Lt. Zachary Nemser], the HCPD has had to adjust their hiring standards to address the shortage. Successful officer applicants were required to score 70% or above on each section of the National Police Officer Selection Test(Standard & Associates, Inc.). Officer applicants now need just a 70% average on the whole test.Physical agility requirements have also been relaxed. And if an officer makes a lateral transfer, they no longer need to pass either the written or agility tests,”

How much less do the new hires, who did not meet the 2015 requirements, know and how much less can they do than the police hired in 2015.  Were they provided with additional training to bring them up to the 2015 standards?

A score of 70% indicates mediocre knowledge; this is low-level tolerable for high school and college courses.  Policemen should be required to have serious knowledge of policing.   (I do not know how rigorous the police exams are.)

Excerpt: Jay Jimenez, a Legal Program Associate for the ACLU of Maryland, What we’ve seen is that most of these police deaths in Maryland, especially involving people of color with disabilities could could have been avoided.”

According to Jimenez, preventing these deaths requires a reevaluation of the validity of current police de-escalation training and the use of less-than-lethal tools, such as tazers, pepper spray and beanbag shotguns.

“I’ll just be clear: The use of tasers, OC sprays, flashbang grenades, or other methods of less-than-lethal force are not the same as de-escalation,” said Jimenez. “Based on the video footage that we’ve seen, this actually had the opposite effect in the shooting of Leonard Shand.”

PGCPS Principal on leave for saying non-citizens would be barred from White House field trip

QYE3ZNQIOMI6TCKCB32EFZMQSQ

The North Portico of the White House (Oliver Contreras/For The Washington Post)

By Arelis R. Hernández

A Prince George’s County elementary school principal has been placed on administrative leave, a school system spokeswoman said Friday, after distributing an unauthorized permission slip that said fourth-grade students who are not citizens would not be allowed to go on a planned field trip to the White House.

The school system said Ashanti Foster will not be returning for the rest of the school year to Thomas Stone Elementary School in Mount Rainier, Md., where a majority of students are Hispanic and the children of immigrants.

Prince George’s schools have long arranged White House visits through a National Park Service program, said schools spokeswoman Raven Hill. While the May 28 trip had been approved, the document sent to parents last month by the school was not. The White House tour was canceled as a result of the errant permission slip, and an alternative trip visiting other national monuments and memorial parks in Washington will take place.

“The issue here was whether school staff took appropriate steps to ensure that all students could participate in a meaningful way,” said schools superintendent Monica Goldson in a statement on Friday. “That did not happen.”

The schools chief said she is making “personnel changes” to improve the school’s climate, placing the principal on administrative leave and reviewing the circumstances surrounding the field trip. She named assistant principal Patricia Crosson as acting principal.

Foster did not respond to a request for comment. But in a letter to parents Wednesday, the principal said the “permission form did not reflect our values as a learning community, and for that, I apologize.”

The controversy — first reported by the Route 1 Reporter news site — erupted publicly when Rocio Treminio-Lopez, mayor of nearby Brentwood, Md., posted a copy of the permission slip on social media asking for help explaining its meaning.

The document — written in English and Spanish — sought information including students’ full names, birth dates, country of birth and citizenship status. Students who were not citizens were supposed to provide a passport number.

“If a scholar is not classified as a U.S. Citizen, they will not be able to attend the field trip,” the permission slip said in bold letters at the bottom.

The questions on the form appear to match what congressional staffers ask when arranging free White House tours for constituents, according to an image of that internal application provided to The Washington Post.

A U.S. Secret Service spokesman confirmed that the questions on the permission slip are required of all children seeking a “boarding pass” to the White House. Children who are not citizens must bring a valid passport with them once cleared.

School officials said the problem was not with the identification requirements, per se, but the wording at the bottom of the permission slip Stone sent out.

Prince George’s school officials would not have approved any form or activity that “excluded students based on citizenship, race/ethnicity, sexuality, religion or ability,” the statement said.

Prince George’s County Council member Deni Taveras (D-District 2), whose district includes Stone Elementary, said the planning for the trip was insensitive and could easily have appeared threatening to families in the United States illegally.

Constituents had complained to her office in the past about the school, she said, including a lack of sufficient bilingual staff and a requirement that parents show a government-issued ID to accompany children to class on the first day of the academic year.

Foster later apologized for the ID requirement.

With the field trip permission slip wording, Taveras said, “instead of stopping and thinking, ‘This isn’t a good idea,’ they went forward and created more division.”

Drama! Jones elected speaker of Md. House of Delegates as Delegate Davis surrenders

IMG_0117-2.jpg

In an extremely impressive development, leaders of the House Democratic Caucus emerged from their tense four-hour meeting Wednesday afternoon to announce that Speaker Pro Tem Adrienne A. Jones (D-Baltimore County) is their unanimous choice to replace the late House Speaker Michael E. Busch (D-Anne Arundel), who died on April 7.

Jones was elected and sworn in as speaker on Wednesday after the two remaining candidates couldn’t piece together the requisite number of votes. She becomes Maryland’s first African-American speaker and first woman speaker after major corruption expose involving Delegate Davis was reported earlier on in this blog.

Jones told her House colleagues, “Wow; I didn’t think I would be here at this time when I left my house this morning!”

Del. Maggie McIntosh, chair of the House Appropriations Committee, and Del. Dereck Davis, chair of the House Economic Matters Committee, were also candidates for the job.

But the race was shaping up to be an ugly, bruising affair, with allegations by some delegates of bullying and name-calling. After four and a half hours of caucusing, neither could assemble the necessary 71 votes.

“We were going back and forth,” Jones said after the vote, with Davis and McIntosh standing on either side of her. She said both former candidates agreed with her selection as an alternative.

“If not, we would have still been in the caucus room, probably (until) eight, nine, ten o’clock tonight,” she said.

Later on social media post, Delegate walker released a rumbling and appeared to be upset after Delegate Davis lost the position due to high corruption in the county. After congratulating the new speaker, He stated in part the following, …… “Today was bitter sweet. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t dissappointed. First I can not believe that members of the Prince George’s Delegation( you know who you are) did not support one of our own in Chairmen Dereck E. Davis to be the Speaker of the House. He would have been the first Black Speaker also. I’m feeling like an old Ice Cube lyric ” sometimes I believe the hype man, we mess it up our selves and blame the white man”. Second to the Members of the Black Caucus of Maryland who wouldnt support one of our own…Shame on you!!! Lastly to members of my own Democratic Party to allow Delegates to speak about one of our own in the matter in which we did today was uncalled for. When will leaders from Prince George’s County be acceptable to Montgomery County? You passed on Anthony Brown. You passed on Rushern Baker and now when you couldnt get your way… you passed on Chairmen Davis. I remember former Senator Broadwater tell me years ago Prince George’s County shouldn’t want fo anything in the State of Maryland because we are the biggest voting democratic block in the state, second largest jurisdiction, second largest delegation(by one vote) and yet we have NO elected statewide leaders. I keep thinking about what my Dad told me as a young professional. It sounded like conspiracy theory at the time but today I saw it again firsthand “By the time you learn the rules, they change the rules” and not to help you out but to help them out!! I hope that the folks that I am talking about have the guts to tell their voting base the truth…”

Maryland Matters reported that in an early afternoon vote, the Democratic caucus cast 58 votes for McIntosh and 40 votes for Davis.

But Davis had the pledged votes of 42 Republicans, and Democratic leaders became nervous about giving the final say on House speaker to the GOP, Maryland Matters reported; thus, Jones, who had bowed out Friday and endorsed Davis, quickly emerged as the compromise candidate.

Lawmakers were a bit stunned by the turn of events.

“It’s the most incredible experience I’ve had in 28 years,” said Del. Kumar Barve, a Montgomery County Democrat. “We came to a genuine consensus, and we’re 100 percent solidly behind Adrienne, and I think that is a great outcome.”

The Democrats emerged from a House hearing room to announce they had decided to throw their weight — and their 98 votes — behind Jones, Maryland Matters reported.

At Jones’ swearing-in, Davis who had been exposed for running the Prince George’s County corruption was heard joking, “’House of Cards’ don’t have anything on us — talk about high drama!” He added, “You were willing to step aside for me, and I am honored to step aside for you now.”

In a reference to the portraits of past speakers in the State House and the fact that they had all been white men, McIntosh said, “These walls will never be the same! We’ve got some new portraits coming, and they’re great!”

We thank the Maryland Delegates for listening to our call on corruption earlier on today as reported in this blog. We thank them too for refusing to participate and nominate  Delegate Davis due to high level corruption currently in progress in Prince George’s County.

Contentious race for House speaker to culminate in special session as Corruption worry many.

CCOPPEDBFYI6TPZE3NFZ7NRKUI

From left, Maryland Democratic Delegates Maggie McIntosh (Baltimore City), Adrienne Jones (Baltimore County) and Dereck E. Davis (Prince George’s County).

The race for speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates has come down to two candidates — and every vote counts. (See letter to the Delegates below)

Ballots will be cast during a special session Wednesday in an intense contest full of suspense that has everything from party infighting to threats of political retaliation from outside groups.

The historic campaign to become the next house speaker is turning ugly, bitter and divisive. The Democratic Party and the Legislative Black Caucus are split over who to endorse.

“It makes no sense that we should be divided in the Democratic caucus,” Baltimore City Delegate Cheryl Glenn said.

Baltimore City Delegate Maggie McIntosh, a white woman who is openly lesbian, and Prince George’s County Delegate Dereck Davis, an African-American man, are competing to succeed Michael Busch, who died earlier this month. Either pick will be historic because the speaker’s position has always been held by a white man.

Speaker Pro Tem Adrienne Jones dropped out of the running due to lack of support. She’s supporting Davis in a questionable move.

“Unity over politics, and that’s how I go,” Jones said according to Baltimore TV 11.

The campaign is turning ugly with Baltimore City Delegate Regina Boyce accusing Legislative Black Caucus Chairman Darryl Barnes of referring to the race and sexual orientation of McIntosh in order to push to elect the first African-American speaker. Barnes denies the allegation. Boyce bolted from Tuesday’s bill-signing ceremony before anyone could ask her about it.

McIntosh held a conference call Tuesday to discuss her vision, outlining classroom funding and school construction as her top priorities.

“Education will be a top priority in my speakership. I will be the education speaker,” McIntosh said.

Glenn, a good friend of McIntosh, is backing Davis.

“I respect the way that he bridges differences not only with other Democrats, but also with the Republicans,” Glenn said. However, in Prince George’s County which is the epicenter of all the corruption in Maryland sees Mr. Davis in another light as the facilitator of questionable activities.

The 42 Republicans in the House want a seat at the table.

“We want the next speaker of Maryland not to be the speaker of the Democratic caucus, but the speaker for all of us, all of Maryland,” House Minority Leader Nicholas Kipke said.

Democrats and Republicans will meet separately at 10 a.m. Wednesday to discuss who to support. Many expect a floor fight when the voting process begins at noon.

OPEN LETTER TO MARYLAND DELEGATES

Dear Honorable Members of the Maryland House of Delegates,

There are three Motions and a brief currently pending in various courts including the U.S Supreme court due to illegal schemes facilitated by Honorable Delegate Dereck Davis and others tied to him. A letter was also mailed to the Thatcher Law Firm (contractor for the Board of Education for Prince George’s County) and copied to each Board of Education member for Prince George’s County concerning serious shenanigans which have been going on in Maryland for many years now. We wanted to make sure each one of you received the information and reflected on it before making a decision for a new speaker.

We have also attached the ruling of Administrative Law Judge Brian Zlotnick in this post which led to the Thatcher Law Firm engaging in widespread violations of law in Maryland and elsewhere at the beckoning of the corrupt union executives. The problems are ongoing after Thatcher law firm was awarded more than $5 million “No bid” contract of the public funds. Thatcher Law Firm is working closely with O’Neal Law Firm which initiated an illegal suit in Washington DC Superior Court.  Association of Supervisory & Administrative School Personnel (ASASP) Union which has been behind the scenes advancing some of the shenanigans including facilitating illegal behavior within Maryland such as abusing the court process for selfish individuals engaged in a criminal behavior.  All these illegal activities are tied to well-connected individuals in Prince George’s County, Montgomery County and in Baltimore City who benefit unjustly using public funds. The legalized lynching of Josephat Mua through the court system must be stopped and be compensated as directed by the Judge Brian Zlotnick in 2012.

The fact is that Maryland House of Delegates, Maryland Senate and the Board of Education for Prince George’s County Board members either supports this system of legal lynching, or is so cynical as to remain silent in order to court the racist and discriminatory vote. Many of us don’t know which is worse.

Blacks in the 1950s and ’60s led a mass movement to overcome a brutally hostile Democratic Party machine and turned the political tide against an entrenched system of legalized racism. We are calling on each one of you to do the same and elect a leader with good moral values as the next speaker but certainly not Delegate Dereck Davis. If he has been able to pull off these illegal activities like this in Prince George’s County imagine what he will do once he becomes the speaker.

Corruption takes birth in a society when its citizens fail to believe that the nation is a common property of all its citizens and the generation yet to come. Every situation, where you leave truth, you are giving birth to corruption, no matter how simple or how complicated is the matter.

Hypocrisy is the mother of all evil and some of these legislators have political personal ambition over that of community in the betterment thereof the County with years of minimal return with the liberal machine along with the oppressive democratic machines. There is no moral compass and the messy truth is no one wants to be honest about the cause and effect of the situation in Prince George’s County.

Reversing the forces of incivility, misinformation, and the active marketing of cynicism will require concerted, collective efforts. Understanding the social and economic characteristics of Prince George’s County with political incorporation rather than representation as the prerequisite.

We will continue to reach out and advocate for what is right in Maryland to the other key players who we believe violated our rights through participation and covered up the mischief in order to benefit unjustly.

Please review the Motion to the court to make a judgement for yourselves and see how Delegate Dereck Davis is connected to the illegal activities in court. Ask tough questions concerning ongoing illegal agenda. Call your elected officials including Board members and tell them to stop the illegal legal lynching of Josephat Mua. Should you need any additional information or if I can be of service, please do not hesitate to contact us at infor@pgparents.org

Sincerely,

Joseph Mua
