The Truth is the most powerful weapon, it takes down the most corrupt people on this planet, it indicts them and puts them behind bars. HOWEVER, I have a question for you, "Who are the people who break the law the most?" I'll let you answer this question. Hint. (New York City Documented Fact) Eric Garner was alive one minute and the next minute he was dead. The truth is a powerful weapon AGAINST CORRUPTION, isn't it?

Albert Einstein said, "If you can't explain it to a six-year-old, you don't understand it yourself."


After Silver arrest, Bharara mocks 'three men in a room'


'The Three Amigos' — Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver After Silver arrest, Bharara mocks 'three men in a room'

U.S. attorney Preet Bharara criticized Albany's "three men in a room" culture, in a half-hour morning talk at a New York Law School breakfast Friday morning.

"There are by my count 213 men and women in the state legislature, and yet it is common knowledge that only three men essentially wield all the power," Bharara said. "I must confess a little bit of confusion about this: When did this come to pass? Why has everyone just come to accept it?"

Bharara said he was speaking as much as a citizen of New York as a federal prosecutor, and said the issue may just be with him, as, being originally from India, "it's like a billion people in the room." He's an excellent speaker.

Bharara poked fun at the power structure, which he said had become "part of the political furniture" of the state. The notion, he said, was like a nostalgic remembrance of a beloved old sitcom: "Coming up after 'Happy Days,' it's 'Three Men in a Room.'"

Bharara said he was speaking as much as a citizen of New York as a federal prosecutor, and said the issue may just be with him, as, being originally from India, "it's like a billion people in the room." He's speak is so powerful.

"Or like it's a hijinks comic movie involving a baby, with Ted Danson and Tom Selleck and Steve Guttenberg changing diapers," he said. "Or maybe, I don't know, 'The Three Amigos."

(Governor Andrew Cuomo included a light-hearted slide showing himself, Silver, and Senate majority leader Dean Skelos as "The Three Amigos," in his State of the State speech on Wednesday.)

"When did 20 million New Yorkers agree to be ruled like a triumvirate in Roman times?" Bharara asked.

"It seems to me, if you're one of the three men in the room, and you have all the power, and you always have, and everyone knows it, you don't tolerate dissent because you don't have to. You don't tolerate debate, because you don't have to. You don't favor change or foster reform, because you don't have to, and because the status quo always benefits you," he said. He talks about the culture of political corruption.

Bharara argued that the parade of arrested officials shakes the ability of government to function on a basic level.

"If these charges are proven true … that at least one of the proverbial three men in a room is deeply compromised, then how can we possibly trust that anything that gets decided in Albany and imposed upon the rest of us is on the level?" he said.

Bharara said he hopes his office's work can help restore the public trust. (WATCH THE VIDEO) PREET BHARARA SPEAKS AT NEW YORK LAW SCHOOL


Gov. Andrew Cuomo is an Evil Dictator

Cuomo created laws that set struggling New Yorkers back!

Andrew Cuomo made a new New York Law targeted at the unemployed working class; if any New Yorker owes the state $10,000 in state tax, New York State is suspending your Drivers License, this is how threatening this dictator Andrew Cuomo is, but he doesn't stop there, he also threatens struggling homeowners that, New York State is taking away your Star Program that reduces your property taxes, and you will have to pay thousands on property and school taxes. We will list these threatening letters for you to read.

Andrew Cuomo, is an evil dictator, his administration is made of leftover corrupt politicians, who are either under investigation, indicted or just plain corrupt, rich and greedy.

Mark my words, Andrew "Mark" Cuomo will be indicted for public corruption in the near future. He's extorting money from homeowners by sending threatening letters to New York residents.

"Governor Cuomo" has kicked a lot of good people "New Yorkers" to the ground who are struggling to pay their household bills, unemployed New Yorkers that are just trying to make ends. These threats he is sending to New Yorkers are unconstitutional communist actions.

Watch the video of Andy Spano, the former Westchester County Executive, who is one of Cuomo's administrators. In the video, Andy Spano is telling me, "Barbara Ricci" how excited he is about buying all the foreclosures and reselling them, making money, and buying more foreclosures and selling them. He is talking about residents of New York who have lost their homes. ANDY SPANO EXPOSED VIDEO

Teamster's Local 456 (IBT) Takeover Continues...

There are many concerned union members at Teamster's Local 456:

* Teamster's don't trust the Independent Review Board (IRB)

The Independent Review Board

* Teamster's don't trust the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT)

The International Teamsters Union (IBT)

Too many complaints about Local 456 were sent to these people, the IRB and IBT and all the complaints were ignored. Teamster's are wondering if this takeover is just more "smoke and mirrors" or will real change be happening at local 456? Maybe this time, Eddie Doyle's name will be taken off the building, once and for all, said a close source.


He has been running this union hall for too many years, and, everyone answers to this Teflon Don. When he blackballs a union member, his favorite saying is, finish him off. He sends his delegates, business agents, and master shop stewards out to his dirty work! His brother Bernard "Bernie" Doyle, threatens union members and tells them to stop talking to members that have been blackballed by his brother Eddie. The President Bob Roberge, is just a puppet on a string for Doyle, said a close source.

Eddie Doyle Sr., was told by the International and the IRB to stop doing business out of the union hall: 160 S. Central Avenue, Elmsford, New York 10523. Doyle, also hand picked his teamster soldiers: business agents, delegates, and master shop steward's, his grandson, Dominick Cassanelli Jr., and his deceased son Eddie Jr's best-friend, Albert "Albe" Liberatore, Big Syd Goldstein, Billy Visci, Tony Tortora Master Shop Steward, better known as Tony T, Bobby Stackhouse he's running the Tappen Zee Bridge, Louis Picani, he's running the City of Yonkers DPW Andy Mackle annuity and pension fund, Dr. Jeffrey Altholz, Clarity testing, and Roy Barnes, Eddie Doyle's lifelong friend and personal attorney, all loyal to Doyle, said a close source.

The International Teamster's will remain at Local 456 for the next 18 months. They may dissolve Local 456 into other union locals or local 282 may takeover, but, these are just hearsay for now, said a close source. They also mentioned local 445, but, local 445, is another local that Eddie Doyle might have "had" his hands in.

President of the Teamster's Union Local 456 Bob Roberge has been removed!

This is for all the concerned Local 456 Teamster members and their families:

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) has taken over the Teamster's Union Local 456 and removed the President Bob Roberge for money missing from the union pension fund, credit card misuse, and public corruption charges said, a close Teamster source. We are waiting to speak with Bernadette McCulloch Kelly, a trustee for the (IBT), she's in charge of the investigation.

* Pension Fund Money Missing
* Abuse of Union Credit Cards
* Abuse of Clarity Testing
* Blackballing Teamsters

These are the officials that have been removed so far:

* Union President Bob Roberge

Big Syd and Billy V. are still in for now: These two are going around to construction yard after construction yard, claiming that they are still running the union, don't worry it's just Bob Roberge who's out, he retired last Friday, November 7, 2014.

* LINK: Union Vice President Syd Goldstein
* LINK: Delegate Bill Visci

This breaking story is just beginning! The Westchester News will keep you informed about the truth that is unfolding at Teamster's Local 456. Stay Tuned.


"It's clearly an abuse of power when a cop steps over the line of law enforcement"



This is how you stop Police Corruption.

Civilians put your cameras on record.

Police can't discredit a civilian's character anymore and their intimidation tactics don't work either.


It's important to know the background of the Judge who is assigned to your civil case, ask, is he or she a former cop or is he or she related to a cop? Then, demand that the judicial system provide you with a fair and just civil trial against these criminal cops, and hold all accountable in law enforcement including court officers and district attorneys for polluting a jury pool. They do that, it's all part of the corruption tactic. Truthfully, cameras should be placed in a jury room to watch the interactions between court officers, district attorney's, and the jury, etc. They act so sweet and cutesy to the jury, and they're on their best behavior in the courtroom to build a relationship of trust behind closed doors, but, the truth is they're savages. The bottomline is cops can't be trusted, their taught to be vindictive to civilians because they are trained to be thugs. You have a few Barney Fife's and Andy Griffith's out there, but, like I said, just a few nice ones.

Many "abusive" police officers are really thugs, they're criminal cops, and, they should have to pay-out of their own pockets for abusing civilians, not the taxpayers.

Yonkers Police Officer Neil Vera and Detective Christian Koch Accused of Perjury

Shame on them, we'll just put them in the "Hall of Shame" for criminal cops. They'll probably get a promotion when all is said and done. The grand jury will most likely find them not guilty. No worries, Yonkers Police Commissioner Charles Gardner will give them a promotion and a $96,000 a year or more salary. You know the commissioner's policy, mess up and move up. He made Yonkers Cop Wayne Simoes, aka.better known as the woman abuser, jaw breaker, body-slammer, now a "Sergeant" with a cushion job making $96,000 a year. Great, they put him in the 2nd Prescient in East Yonkers to abuse more people, nice way to teach the Yonkers Police Officers and Rookies how to get a big raise and promoted! Hey, coppers, if you MESS UP you MOVE UP!

We all know, the internal affairs department doesn't acknowledge that corrupt criminal cops exist because all the complaints against corrupt cops go absolutely no-where; let's look at the Yonkers Cop Wayne Simoes, he got promoted from Police Officer Wayne Simoes aka. the Body-Slammer to Sgt. Wayne Simoes, who said life is great, I'm doing great, hum, I wonder how Irma Marquez's life is, after he almost killed her, said a close source.

Sgt. Wayne Simoes clearly has a mentality unbalanced mind that continues to use the abuse of power in Yonkers, New York. Promoting Simoes sent a message to all 600 Yonkers Police that this Body-Slammer works with daily, if you mess up, you move up, said a close source. These are the real facts!


Justice was not served, when the Yonkers Cop Wayne Simoes was acquitted by a grand jury, "Not Guilty," and then, he was promoted to Sgt. Wayne Simoes and given a $96,000 a year raise and placed into the 2nd prescient that is a few blocks from his home at 280 Hayward St., Yonkers, NY 10704.

Let's hope the next woman he body slams face first onto the floor is his own wife, not someone else's wife. He physically abused a woman, Irma Marquez, body slamming her face down onto the floor breaking her jaw.

Wayne Simoes should have never been promoted, he is an extremely disturbed man, and you can tell he is unstable just by talking to him for five minutes, said a close source.

Yonkers residents BEWARE Wayne Simoes is now a sergeant in the 2nd prescient, and he is a very dangerous individual with a corrupt mentality. Yonkers Police Officer Acquitted on Body-Slamming Case

The Commissioner of the Yonkers Police Charles Gardner says, Police face a difficult, dangerous job. The Citizens of Yonkers say, "Behind the Badge is: Abuse of Power" Charles Gardner's Opinion

I think the problem is, there is a wall between Yonkers Citizens and Yonkers Police and that same wall you will find in every other city, big or small, as in, Mount Vernon, New York. The problem is the trust, people just don't trust police.

If you ask civilians who are the people who break the most laws, and the answer every time is cops are the worse law breakers. Many cops don't feel as though the laws that civilians must abide by, do not pertain to them. That's unfortunate that many police officers think they are above the law. I think if they memorized the Human Rights Act Article 1-30, they would realize that no police officer has a right to abuse anyone or cause them harm or put false charges on anyone, and no one should ever be abused by any law enforcement for any reason.

In this country, we are innocent until proven guilty in the court of law. The first law, that the police break is by releasing a person's mug shot to the press and making them guilty before they ever step their foot into a courtroom. That is a crime in itself, to destroy an innocent persons character before they are proven guilty.

There are many good police officers out there risking their lives, that is true, but, on the other hand, there are plenty of corrupt police who are taking advantage of the system by breaking the law. Why doesn't the commissioner talk about the corrupt police in his department? Is he saying that there are no corrupt police officers that break all the rules?

Every community has a problem with the badge because the badge became tarnished many years ago, and through those years police brutality continued, innocent citizens were targeted, and their character discredited. Citizens were dragged through the court system for years. That was before cameras and iphones existed, today we have You-Tube, and the internet. Years ago there was plenty of police brutality and false arrest and false charges put on civilians. The camera lens does not lie. Police corruption is worse than ever, cops are corrupt, there is no other way to put it. There are a few good ones but, the corrupt ones out weigh the good ones by far.

We must always respect our laws and the constitutional rights of our fellow citizens.

Today, the camera lens is always on record, therefore, the truth will always prevail against a corrupt cop.

I respect a few cops, but, not many because I honestly, do not trust them because I know there is a shady dark side to a cop. They lie, bully, and intimidate civilians and hustle local businesses for freebies. I've gotten plenty of complaints from business owners about Yonkers cops being on the take.

Ms. Ricci. I'm a reporter at the Journal News. Although I did not write the story you're commenting on, I did want to point out that when police release an arrested person's mug shot to the press, they are not breaking the law, they are following it. The public information law requires the release of information, including photos, of arrests. Thanks for reading, and writing!

Rich Liebson, your a reporter, I think you should understand that for every law, there is a loophole and there is abuse of that law and people tend to twist and squeeze the law to fit their purpose of using it. There are too many people who use the law for the wrong reasons.

There are too many people who miss-understand the law and too many people who think that they are above the law. News Reporters, can be held accountable for not investigating a story. Dictation is a very unbalanced position for a News Reporter to be in, it's important to find out the truth before you inform the public. Maybe a person is a victim of police brutality and the police put false charges on them, is it right to write a one sided story or is it right to interview both sides involved in the story, gather documentation, and evidence, etc. Tell me, is it right to destroy an innocent persons character without any investigation by you or any evidence presented to you, would you except just hearsay? I think it's important for every news reporter and every police officer to memorize the Human Rights Act Article 1-30! The truth, I'll say that again, "The Truth" is the most important words for a news reporter when they sit at their computer and write a story about someone's life. The truth should matter. You get a mug shot, ok, now, show me the evidence? Hearsay don't cut it! Innocent Until Proven Guilty, that's the LAW. If you write about the law then, you should understand the loophole in the law. Human Rights Act Article 1-30. Ask any lawyer. Documentation ("Evidence") wins in court, nothing else. Hearsay does not win in court. My advice to anyone who is innocent is this, don't take the stand if you are innocent because the evidence is the only thing that can convict! If you are innocent there is no evidence, only hearsay!

"October. This is one of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks. The others are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August and February." -- Mark Twain

NYPD Murdered Eric Garner on the street in New York City

This is what "News Reporters" want to say to Patrick Lynch, PBA ("Union") President in interview after interview, Tell me Patrick, are the NYPD trained to be savages or do you hire them with this savage mentality to overpower citizens by using physical force to hurt or kill innocent people. Tell me, are your police officers robots programed to kill? The NYPD are thugs in blue uniforms, criminals wear orange strips, criminal cops wear badges and guns. Can you justify the savage behavior of the NYPD? No you can't.

"The NYPD are savages, they're animals" witnesses said, as they watched them murder Eric Garner. The camera lens does not lie, cops lie, and they think that they can get away with murdering people, they're psychotic and dangerous.

The NYPD are the lowest of the low, and they have the most disgusting excuses for using excessive force. If, the NYPD were band from using choke holds years ago, than, why did these bully cops use it? There is a thin line between a criminal and a corrupt cop, isn't there? I think, I've seen enough now.... I will never trust a cop, for God's sake, even if the man was was selling illegal cigerettes... he was not hurting anyone, he was trying to support his six kids and his wife. What's the problem? He was breaking the law. Big f-cking deal because killing him is breaking the law too! This story is heartbreaking! These cops are out of control... they just don't give a f-ck about another man's life, they killed Eric Garner, they murdered him on the street infront of witnesses, and now, they'll get away with murder once again. THERE ARE NO EXCUSES!!!

Eric Garner was a 43-year-old father of six and grandfather of two. The tall, 400-pound man, who was known around his Staten Island neighborhood as a "gentle giant" nicknamed "Big E," was approached Thursday outside a New York City store by a group of NYPD officers who accused him of selling contraband cigarettes. "I didn't do shit!" Garner can be seen telling cops in a video of the incident. "I was just minding my own business."

"Every time you see me, you want to mess with me," he added. "I'm tired of it ... Please just leave me alone!"

Cops say they saw Garner selling cigarettes outside the store. Other witnesses, however, said he'd just finished breaking up a fight. He had no cigarettes on him, nor in his car, his family told the Daily News.

But the officers didn't leave Garner alone. Instead they tried to arrest him. Visibly upset at what was unfolding, Garner resisted. "Don't touch me," he said.

It's then that an officer can be seen in the video putting Garner -- who suffered from chronic asthma, sleep apnea and diabetes -- into a tight, illegal chokehold. Garner falls to the ground, where, numerous times, he tells officers he can't breathe.

Then, his body goes limp. (Warning: This video contains content that may be disturbing to some readers. Story continues Huffington Post Video/Read More )

I think these police officers who take the lives of innocent human beings are savages, they're criminals, they take advantage of the uniform and the badge. If, a police officer can't act like the rest of us respectful civilians, whether in uniform or out of uniform, than, they are no better then a criminal.

The NYPD are savages, they are no better then thugs. Attacking people to arrest them, shooting at people, and using a taser on people, is coward. Real hero's want to help people better there lives, not beat them up and kill them.

The police have become savages over the years, and they are getting worse and worse. Any police officer involved in hurting any civilian during an arrest should be charged with assault or attempted murder. They should be charged with a crime.

When a police officer watches another police officer choke hold a man, throw him on the ground, while, 3-4 other cops sit on the man while the man is pleading with them, saying I can't breathe, and then, the man dies, that's murder in the first degree, and they all ("all") should be charged with murder.

The NYPD are criminal cowards. They are the lowest of the low.

If, your a cop, don't look the other way when your fellow cop is attacking a civilian, arrest the cop he's a criminal and charge him with assault on a civilian or you are just as guilty and corrupt as he is, I can't breathe, what does that mean to you?

There is an ("extremely") thin line between a criminal and a cop.

Ask anyone, who are the people who break the law the most? The cops. There is no excuse for taking someone's life, none whatsoever. Did you hear, they put a seven month pregnant woman in a choke hold for barbecuing dinner in front of her house.

What happened to giving people a warning violation? These cops are out of control. They should not be able to put their hands on a person for something as minor, as panhandling or barbecuing on the sidewalk, resisting arrest should not even be an option as a charge, it's a bogus charge to coverup police brutality and corruption.

We Appealed Judge Nelson Roman's Ruling because we personally know he's Corrupt!

The Supreme Court Judge Nelson Roman is not fit to be a Judge or rule on any case, he's corrupt! He disregards the truth and dismisses valid lawsuits against corrupt organizations.

Albert Einstein is man of great wisdom.

Remembering Our Veterans


"Our veterans deserve better than this America."

"Veterans Day is about remembering, our freedom, was paid for, thank a Veteran!" Parade's are nice, ticket parades are better, but don't thank a veteran with a stupid parade, try a handshake and a conversation. Our Freedom is quickly fading away, don't let it go!

David Vs. Goliath

Bible Story Summary

By Mary Fairchild

Scripture Reference: 1 Samuel 17

The Philistine army had gathered for war against Israel. The two armies faced each other, camped for battle on opposite sides of a steep valley. A Philistine giant measuring over nine feet tall and wearing full armor came out each day for forty days, mocking and challenging the Israelites to fight. His name was Goliath. Saul, the King of Israel, and the whole army were terrified of Goliath.

One day David, the youngest son of Jesse, was sent to the battle lines by his father to bring back news of his brothers. David was probably just a young teenager at the time. While there, David heard Goliath shouting his daily defiance and he saw the great fear stirred within the men of Israel. David responded, "Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of God?"

So David volunteered to fight Goliath. It took some persuasion, but King Saul finally agreed to let David fight against the giant. Dressed in his simple tunic, carrying his shepherd's staff, slingshot and a pouch full of stones, David approached Goliath. The giant cursed at him, hurling threats and insults.

David said to the Philistine, "You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied ... today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air ... and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel ... it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord's, and he will give all of you into our hands."

As Goliath moved in for the kill, David reached into his bag and slung one of his stones at Goliath's head. Finding a hole in the armor, the stone sank into the giant's forehead and he fell face down on the ground. David then took Goliath's sword, killed him and then cut off his head. When the Philistines saw that their hero was dead, they turned and ran. So the Israelites pursued, chasing and killing them and plundering their camp.

Points of Interest from the David and Goliath Story:

• Why did they wait forty days to begin the battle? Probably for several reasons. Everyone was afraid of Goliath. He seemed invincible. Not even King Saul, the tallest man in Israel, had stepped out to fight. Also, the sides of the valley were very steep. Whoever made the first move would have a strong disadvantage and probably suffer great loss. Both sides were waiting for the other to attack first.

• David chose not to wear the King's armor because it felt cumbersome and unfamiliar. David was comfortable with his simple slingshot, a weapon he was skilled at using. God will use the unique skills he's already placed in your hands, so don't worry about "wearing the King's armor." Just be yourself and use the familiar gifts and talents God has given you. He will work miracles through you.

• David's faith in God caused him to look at the giant from a different perspective. Goliath was merely a mortal man defying an all-powerful God. David looked at the battle from God's point of view. If we look at giant problems and impossible situations from God's perspective, we realize that God will fight for us and with us. When we put things in proper perspective, we see more clearly and we can fight more effectively.

• When the giant criticized, insulted and threatened, David didn't stop or even waver. Everyone else cowered in fear, but David ran to the battle. He knew that action needed to be taken. David did the right thing in spite of discouraging insults and fearful threats. Only God's opinion mattered to David.

Questions for Reflection:

Are you facing a giant problem or impossible situation? Stop for a minute and refocus. Can you see the situation more clearly from God's vantage point?

Do you need to take courageous action in the face of insults and fearful circumstances? Do you trust that God will fight for you and with you? Remember, God's opinion is the only one that matters.

Corruption is accepted as Normal, it's so widespread!

"Being corrupt, just, to get ahead in one's own career, it doesn't say much, except, no one has accomplished anything more than, corruption."

When your searching for the true meaning of life!

You will find it in your endurance, in the struggles of life, it's something we all know, and sooner or later it becomes an important part of life, the part we learn to embrace. It's a true saying, you have one life, enjoy it! I know some of us don't have good lives, but, it's important that we learn to dance because when we learn to dance we learn to live! I count my blessings everyday, I am alive, I get to smile at all my fond memories because these are the moments that matter the most, when your searching for the true meaning of life.

Black Citizens ALERT: Caution

"The NAACP lives and thrives off racist blacks and simple minded people, who are uneducated and live in the Ghetto." Working class black's are tired of being treated like second class citizens by the NAACP Leadership who by the way are wealthy blacks who live with all white people and send their children to all white schools. Wake up black people the NAACP are keeping you suppressed.

The Best-Selling Children's Books

Parents need to take action against the school violence by moving their children's imagination away from all violence and killings in the United States and around the world. Children need more storytime. Parents should draw their children toward positive energy by getting back to the basics, as in, reading children's books, not violent video games or following freaky celebrities and entertainers that Hollywood promotes as normal, I think you get what I'm saying. Let's get back to the child's imagination with Juvenile Fiction, Action Adventures, Pirates and Treasures. Children's Books make beautiful gifts that will help in the positive development of a growing child's mind. Read More

Anyone You Know Taking Prozac?

Anyone you know has bugged out eyes and walks and talks like a weirdo with taboo habits, they may be crazy enough to be taking Prozac the killer drug. These are the people who will kill innocent people for no reason, if they can get their hands on a firearm. Listen, don't worry about the sane people who carry legal firearms because you need these good guys with firearms to takedown the bad guys with a gun. What you should worry about is these insane people walking the streets with illegal guns, who are taking Prozac, it's been documented that these people are suicidal and will and have killed innocent people because their brain is being altered by mental medications like Prozac, these pills have very serious side effects, one of the side effects is the urge to kill, said a close source.

The Westchester News is growing rapidly, story, video, article, news documentary; our team is working hard bringing us to the next level.

I think the hardest thing I have ever done in my life has been to create this news media, I have worked for the last 6 years, 365 days, year after year, day after day, and each and every year has been a struggle to invest my money in this news media, while, struggling financially to maintain my confidence and my dignity, knowing that, I have spent the last 22 years of my life fighting against political corruption and the politicians and powers behind it, and it has been rough standing in the shadows as a "Mom & Pop" online news media, and while standing in the shadows of News 12 Westchester, and the Journal News corporations, and other news networks throughout the Metro Area, they have millions of dollars in funding behind them, studios and offices, and let's not forget they have some corrupt political ties dictating to them behind the scenes, political ties that "The Westchester News" has exposed on this website since 2006.

The Westchester News, we built this huge empire together, we did it, we're the "Nobody's" of this world who now have a voice. Indeed, our competitors are financially huge, but, we are huge too, huge in spirit, huge in followers, huge in friendships, but, my friends it has not been an easy life for me during which I achieved these great accomplishments. It's extremely hard for me to ask you about this, but, I truly hope you appreciated the time I spent creating The Westchester News, and investigating stories that touched your lives, and, if you are financially secure please send me a thank you in as little as a dollar bill, honestly, I don't care how much you send me because it's the thought that really counts, and to all of you who have sent me letters in the past, I do appriciate your letters thanking me for writing stories that touch your hearts and hit close to home. We love hearing how much The Westchester News means to you. The Westchester News cost me the last 22 years of my life preparing myself to become this person who cares about knowing the truth, and I dedicated 22 years of my life exposing corruption and telling you the truth about the political corruption that destroys innocent lives, please tell me, how much this news media means to you? I really want to know how much I am appreciated for what I do.

 "I have trained myself to live by only two rules, I prepare for the worst, and I hope for the best, and I live by these rules everyday."

Before you send me your sad story, you should read mine, "I'm Still Standing" The Barbara Ricci Story. Sometimes I can't believe this is the life God chose for me, and it has been very hard for me to finish my book, the last chapter has been extremely difficult to write because I am still waiting for that happy ending to happen, and, I wish I had that happy ending in my life right now to share with you, but, as is, all I have on the last page of my book, is what the title says, "I'm Still Standing".
