The Balance of Justice


News Reporter Barbara Ricci and her husband Peter need your help!!!

We sued the Teamsters Union for Blackballing and abusing me and my family because I exposed the corrupt leadership at Local 456 in a Bombshell Story.

When all the Teamsters brought the story to me, I had the courage to investigate the story, write, and publish it on The Westchester News. I filmed and edited so many videos, etc. I spent a lot of time gathering up evidence against Teamsters Local 456. We had them.

The corrupt New York State Court, Supreme Court, and the Second Circuit Appeals Court, all of them denied our right to sue "Local 456" because (so the court says) we filed our case 30 days late so it's timed-barred. That's not justice, no that's conspiracy and corruption. We learned so much about New York State loophole laws, New York State Bar Association, New York Judge Panels, and the entire corrupt court system. The corruption is so widespread and there is nothing that any of us can do about it. You will never find "Justice" in any New York State Court, Federal Supreme Court or Appeals Court!

The sad thing is the Teamsters Union "Leadership" is guilty for what they did to us and so many others.

My husband has been out of work for 3-years, we had to live off of his annuity and selling our belongings.

His case against Local 456 is "Not" time-barred with the IRB (International Review Board) they know what the Teamsters leadership did to my husband and me and they continue their investigation.

Millions of dollars has been stolen out of the Health and Welfare at Local 456, and the IRB and the FBI are going to find it and the people who were involved in stealing it will be going to jail in the near future. We all know who those people are.

The IBT has taken over Local 456, thanks to my stories that exposed the corruption and removed the corrupt leadership, not all but some. Many of the old regime is still hanging around the union hall for now. The odds are local 456 will close completely when the investigation is over and Local 282 will take over.

My husband Peter, got his union book back, he's back in the union, but, he lost his car after 3-years of struggling financially, he needs a car to get to construction sites so he can work. We need a car.

We need help in restoring our lives and we're hoping gofundme will help us. We NEED $30,000, we need $20,000 to pay the government for being penalized for taking my husband's annuity early, to live on it for 3-years, and my husband needs a car to get to construction job sites for work.

Peter has been out of work for 3-years. I hope somebody can help us! I have to see who will help us. We don't have a car. I just don't know what to do anymore. I'm at my wits end, but, for good reason, anyone would be at their wits end if they had to go through what we went through for the past 3-years. We trusted the New York State Supreme Court System and we learned the hard-way, they're corrupt and can't be trusted.

People who conspire behind the scenes to hurt people like us, they're very evil people. When is enough, enough? That's a question that will be a chapter in my book. I am deleting my Facebook page today, Wednesday, August 19, 2015, the reason being that it has no meaning or substance to me. The important thing is that I focus on finishing my book and get it published. I have to get back to my writing and hope for the best!

If you have a car or van that you can donate to us that would be great!


We have to rely on the kindness of a "Stranger, an Angel or Blessings" to find us.

Please donate to our cause to help restore our lives. This is an emergency...Please gofundme

This is a very sad situation we are trying our best to stay positive and stay focused on things "will" get better soon, but, if and when are uncertain words to live by?  Right now, our "Life is a Tragedy."

If no one helps us... I just don't know how this story will end.

Thank you,

Peter and Barbara Ricci

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?

Andrew Cuomo's Partying Days Are Over

Sandra Lee, Andrew Cuomo's girlfriend, rushed to hospital: close source

Gov. Cuomo's longtime girlfriend, Sandra Lee, was rushed to a hospital Tuesday evening on August 4, 2015, a source close to the celebrity chef told the Daily News. According to the source, Lee, 49, is suffering fluid buildup and "the plan is to monitor her for a couple of days." She was sent to the hospital around 9:30 p.m.

Cuomo was attending the Billy Joel concert at Nassau Coliseum at the time when he heard about the news, and was said to be "en route" to the hospital.

As a cancer survivor, I couldn't imagine my husband going to parties, weddings or concerts, going down rivers laughing for a promo shot, etc.. Governor or not, he is wrong because this is a time to be on his knees in prayer asking God to heal his girlfriend from this deadly disease. This is a time for him to be by his girlfriend's side taking care of her and encouraging her. The "EGO" on Andrew Cuomo is ENORMOUS, he's partying while his girlfriend is battling breast cancer. That's cold. It makes me feel very sad for Sandra Lee because I know how frightened and insecure she is inside right now. Andrew Cuomo is not the man you want by your side when your battling cancer. He's a self-centered creep, he has no morals.DAILY NEWS

We can't just wish her well and let it go because she could have lived a healthy normal life without getting the surgery.

Sandra Lee, is not the first young woman that has been mutilated. This is happening all too often. She had a mammogram and a doctor saw a little shadow something changed in the mammogram, but, it doesn't mean anything. For Example: A woman could have lost weight, gained weight, body changes when you get older, etc.

All woman get cysts in their body that come and go, and the the truth is they are benign and they may never develop into cancer ever. This mutilation of young women has got to stop.

There are risks that come with having any such surgery, and it's a shame that a young woman of Sandra Lee's statute ends up being a human guinea pig for science medicine. The surgery was unnecessary. This is very sad.

And, that boyfriend of hers is a cold-hearted piece of garbage for leaving her alone and going out partying, he has every excuse to leave her alone all the time as she is recovering from this serious surgery.

As a cancer survivor, I couldn't imagine my husband going to parties, weddings or concerts, going down rivers laughing for a promo shot, etc..

Governor or not, he is wrong because this is a time to be on his knees in prayer asking God to heal his girlfriend from this deadly disease, that's if she even has it.
This is a time for him to be by his girlfriend's side taking care of her and encouraging her and loving her.

The "EGO" on Andrew Cuomo is ENORMOUS, he's partying while his girlfriend is battling breast cancer. That's cold.

It makes me feel very sad for Sandra Lee because I know how frightened and insecure she is inside right now. I think every cancer survivor knows how scared she feels inside.

Andrew Cuomo is not the man you want by your side when your battling cancer. He's a self-centered creep, he has no morals.

I'm not sure how sure how anyones marriage works for them and their hubby. For all I know, the people reading this may have an open marriage. I don't know. However, in my marriage to my husband, my hubby and I, we do everything together and we are married for 32-years.  

Here's what I believe, if you want to hangout with your friends, than, you have no business being married or even better living with someone like, husband and wife and she's your homemaker.  That is a lopsided relationship, it's an arrangement.  

There is no strength in a wavering mind that says I love you baby, but, I gotta go do this thing tonight with my friends. I personally wouldn't accept that as it's okay because that just sounds like a con man who knows he's getting away with having an arrangement, not a marriage.  

The marriage vows you take when you really love someone are these, "for better or worse, in sickness or in good health, until death do we part." That's it, it's simple to say those vows to each other when you truly love them and want to spend the rest of your life with them.  

When I think of sickness, I wouldn't leave my dog alone if he or she was recovering from surgery or anyone I love.  When you truly love someone you want to spend every free moment you have with them.  You want to do everything in your power to help them recovery. You want to make them laugh again and smile or if you feel like crying, it's okay, you'll cry together.  That's what true love is.... it's everlasting.  

I feel sorry for people, who don't know what true love feels like, it's wonderful to know that there is someone that you can count on being by your side when you scared and frightened, lonely and afraid.  Someone to gently touch you, and, let you know there is nothing more important in the world than you.

I don't think many people especially the rich ones ever get to know that kind of true love.

The Balance of Justice Continues

U.S. Court of Appeals: No bail for Sam Zherka

NEW YORK – The U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled on Friday, February 6, 2015, that controversial strip club owner and newspaper publisher Selim "Sam" Zherka should remain in jail while he awaits trial on federal fraud charges.

In a four-page decision released Friday, the court upheld U.S. District Court Judge Cathy Seibel's decision to keep Zherka in prison on the grounds that he could flee the country and be a threat to the community if freed on bail. This is another crock of sh-t, Sam Zherka is not Michael Corleone in the Godfather, he's someone who has exposed political corruption.

Sam Zherka, was born in the Bronx, New York, and his mother and brother and his entire family lives in Yonkers and throughout Westchester County. It's wrong what these judges did to him because he is so well-known, and all the judges and lawyers know him well, everyone knows these Jewish Judges are playing politics with Sammy. We have criminal Judges, prosecutors, lawyers, court clerks, police officers, FBI Agents, politicians, what else do we have in New York? They all belong behind bars for life for what they do to the American people. They rob us of or constitutional rights like a bunch of communists.

Sam Zherka, is only 46-years-old, and he has been held without bail since he was indicted on Sept. 18 on charges of tax fraud, wire fraud, witness tampering and falsifying loan applications. Seibel ruled that Zherka had enough assets and overseas ties to be a flight risk, and has a history of obstructing investigators and tampering with witnesses.

Defense attorney Fred Hafetz argued that defendants facing even more serious charges have been granted bail, noting that even known Mafioso get bail on similar criminal cases. Zherka even tried to get the prosecutors in the case disqualified, saying they had "an axe to grind" against him in a letter to the judge.

But Seibel has denied the requests, saying Zherka had "shown contempt for the legal system" and could flee.

The loss at the Court of Appeals leaves Zherka with little hope of being granted bail, as it is the nation's highest court outside of the U.S. Supreme Court. Zherka could face up to a 300-year-sentence if convicted of all the charges.

Zherka publishes the Westchester Guardian, owns two strip clubs and is a controversial figure in local politics.

The conspiracy and corruption that is going on inside the highest courts must stop! People like Sam Zherka are sitting in jail because these justices are disregarding the laws of Justice. Sam Zherka exposed the political corruption, as I do, and they won't give him bail.

Court of Appeals: No new trial for Sandy Annabi

NEW YORK – A federal appeals court has nixed former Yonkers City Councilwoman Sandy Annabi's bid for a new trial, saying it is unlikely that questions about a witness at the trial would have changed her corruption conviction.

In a decision, Thursday, January 15, 2015, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals denied Sandy Annabi the right for a new trial.

Sandy Annabi the Yonkers City council woman, she's doing 7-years in jail, for what? When the politicians and lawyers that ratted her out are far worse than she could ever be.

Yet, some of these rats are getting away with extorting money from homeowners, being drug addicts, hanging out in strip clubs in NYC, and, they do whatever they want because they are FBI informants! How sick is that?

Sam Zherka and Sandy Annabi, are not a threat to the people of New York!

The FBI informants are the real threats to the people of the New York, and, they should "NOT" be protected from the crimes they're committing for reason that they are FBI informants because some of them are extremely criminal for what they continue to do to citizens of New York City and Westchester County, New York! These corrupt politicians are laughing at the FBI and the people that complain about them.

New York State is the most corrupt "State" in the entire United States of America. That is a fact.

The conspiracy and corruption that is going on inside the highest courts must stop! People like Sam Zherka are sitting in jail because these "Justices" are completely disregarding the laws of Justice.

Sam Zherka is the publisher of "The Guardian Newspaper" exposed the political corruption, as I do everyday, and they won't give him bail because Sammy exposed too much corruption, that's why. New York State is so disgusting what they do to innocent people's lives. It's very sad.

Sandy Annabi the Yonkers City Council Woman, she's doing 7-years in jail, for what reason? When the politicians who ratted her out are far worse a threat to the people, than she could ever be.

Meanwhile, the rats are getting away with extorting money from homeowners and so much more because they are FBI informants! How sick is that? Sam Zherka and Sandy Annabi, are not a threat to the people of New York! The FBI informants are the real threats to the people of the New York, and, they should not be protected under these circumstances. Sam Zherka should be set free, he's an American. He's not a terrorist! Sandy Annabi was easily lead to do what she did by "the same" corrupt politicians who ratted her out to the FBI. I can tell you clearly that she didn't deserve this sentence alone.

Yonkers Council President Chuck Lesnick took the money too, he personally told, Yonkers Councilwoman Joan Gronowski to take the money. When I told Chuck, did you tell Joan to take the money, he said, yes I did, so, as he walked quickly down the stairs at the Dunwoodie Golf Course.

Yonkers City Councilman Dennis Robertson, another informat "rat" to the FBI, he also got a contract signed for himself and his Commercial House Keeping Company to supply all the cleaning staff and products at Empire City Casino and Yonkers Racetrack, his company is based in New Jersey. He got that contract while he was a Yonkers City Councilman, but, Sandy Annabi is doing 7-years in prison for taking the money for the Ridge Hill Project. It just doesn't make any sense, does it?

Rabbi Moshe Taubenfeld, Child Molester, Corrupt Judge Let's Him Walk Free

Rockland County, NY - Following a multi-week, non-jury trial a Rockland County judge has found a well known rabbi from New Square "not guilty" of sexual assault charges on Thursday, July 30, 2015. Rabbi Moshe Taubenfeld was accused of sexually molesting a 9-year-old boy over a five-year period after the child came to him for counseling from September 2001 until May 2006. Taubenfeld did not take the witness stand in his own defense. The rabbi was facing seven years behind bars if convicted.

The Rockland County Court "Judge Rolff Thorsen" the non guilty verdict said it was based on the evidence, and had nothing to do with public opinion.

Well know Williamsburg activist Nachum Rosenberg who came to court Thursday to hear the verdict, called the decision political, saying the judge owed his election to New Square. He said as long as judges are subject to political influence, "there will be no peace for children."

This is how I imagine it was when Hitler was in power...

I never thought a Jewish person was capable of being this corrupt after what Hitler did to them.

"I never knew, the Jews that sit on the top of these courts could be as evil as Hitler, but, they are very evil people. They disregard the laws of this land for political power and financial gain. It's a serious matter."

"This will be the legacy of the Honorable Robert A. Katzmann, Chief Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit." There are 15 Judges on his panel and they all disregard the law of the land.

These Appeals Court Justices for the Second Circuit are disregarding the Laws of Justice.

This is an Appeals Court Panel of (3) Judges who completely disregard the law:

Hon. Dennis Jacobs

Hon. Raymond J. Lohier, Jr.

Hon. Laura Taylor Swain

These (3) Judges mentioned above are "NOT" making judgements based on Law.

The Scale of Justice is broken in NYC, it's lopsided and leaning to one side.

How do we fix this injustice behind the secret doors of our court system?

The highest court in New York State is tainted and cannot be trusted.

New York State Highest Courts Are Corrupt.

We Appealed Judge Nelson Roman's Ruling because we personally know he's Corrupt! The Argument is called "Tolled" for this reason or that reason, etc.

The Supreme Court Judge Nelson Roman is not fit to be a Judge or rule on any case, he's corrupt, but, he's not the only Judge or Attorney that's corrupt, there are plenty of corrupt Judges and lawyers in bed together in Westchester County and New York City.

The New York City Bar Association the Director George Wolff, was "very sweet" until he found out who I was, Barbara Ricci, The Westchester News who exposes political corruption. He told me, he was told by the panel to "blackball" me and not answer any of my questions. Who knew? I didn't know how famous I've become until that moment when the Director of the New York City Bar Legal Referral Service treated me like I was Dateline knocking on there door at 42 West 44th Street, New York, NY 10036. They have 475 members from New York City - Westchester County.

Mr. Wolff, told me the panel will not answer any of my questions. Now that confirms why the corruption is so wide-spread throughout our court system. Maybe this is the secret panel for the Grand Jury because if it is, they are corrupt as the day is long. The panel refuses to answer any of my questions, that's a crock of sh-t.

All these Corrupt Judges disregard the truth and dismiss valid lawsuits against corrupt people and big huge multi-million dollar organizations, like the Teamsters, New York Times and

If you have a case in Judge Roman's court have it removed, he's not fit to be a Judge or rule on the Supreme Court! Read More: Judge Nelson Roman

The Highest Court in New York State "New York Appeals Court" denied our Appeal. In fact they have a panel of 15 Judges that denied our appeal. These Judges and Court Clerks are seriously corrupt. They did some evil things during our appeal that I will share with you. They delayed our time-sensitive mail and sent it back to the post office so many times. It's a vicious cycle, but, I didn't let them get to me I just took a lot of notes, names, times, days, etc. The entire system is one huge coverup and they disregard the laws of Justice! New York State is a melting Pot, there is more evil than good on this soil, and I am confident in my Christian faith that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will see us through this terrible ordeal that we have been through, God is with us. I will Appeal to the Highest Court in the country, The United States Supreme Court. We have one more chance at an Appeal to "Petition for Writ of Certiorari" and we will try one more time.

"I never knew, the Jews that sit on the top of these courts could be as evil as Hitler, but, they are very evil people. They disregard the laws of this land for political power and financial gain. It's a serious matter."

New York State Justices Robes are Stained and Tainted.

We're not talking about the Court System here in Yonkers, absolutely not, Yonkers has one of the best court systems in New York State. And, 80% of the Yonkers Police are good cops, men and women.

What we are talking about here is Westchester County State Court system and Supreme Court Judges, Robert M. Dibella, Judge Nelson S. Roman, and, New York State Court of Appeals in New York City for the Second Circuit.

The Pro Se Office on the 9th Floor in Westchester County Courthouse, 111 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., 9th Floor White Plains, NY 10601, Court Help Center, Director J. Marshall Mangold, Esq. For Example: Mr. Mangold, did not help us when we as" pro se" reached out to him, and he mislead us straight down the road to failure.

These so called "professionals" that are running our court system operations everyday are like evil "communists" who invaded our constitutional rights, and now their dictating a law that does not exist outside of the so called court buildings that they now occupy, it's as evil as Hitler's administration, they created a dictatorship, and they all work together to adamantly lie to the public.

I said to a judge, what about the truth? And, the Judge said, the truth, Judges don't care about the truth, and, no Judge wants to rule on a case. I guess, this is what they learn in law school, this is how they justify being above the law. Attorney's, law firms, politicians, judges and court clerk's are all in bed together, they're all on the same page, they're all on the same side, and it's the wrong side. "The people that you think are in place to help you and guide you, they don't exist, the people you think, you can trust are there to mislead you."

If you've been through the court system, than, you know what I am saying is the truth. It's a double edged sword full of deception and lies, it's a manipulated system. Conspiracy and Corruption Hide Behind The Robes of Justice. Corruption Hides Behind The Laws of Congress that somehow turned our "Constitutional Rights and Laws" into loopholes of evil and wavering minds that whisper into each others ears "DENIED" the right to Justice. All your Civil Lawsuits, Criminal Appeals and pro se Appeals, all are stamped DOA.

It's "UNCONSTITUTIONAL" to deny people a "A Right To Sue" a corporation or union in court because it's 30-days TIME-BARRED.

The law states... With respect to civil lawsuits, A statute of limitations is unconstitutional if it immediately curtails an existing remedy or provides so little time that it deprives an individual of a reasonable opportunity to start a lawsuit. It is criminal for the Appeals Court Justices to deny someone "A Right To Sue" for being 30-days TIME-BARRED. We learned that we have to present it as "Tolled" for this reason and that reason. It's a learning process, but, we're learning day by day, and as we learn, you'll learn because we will share the experience with you.

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.

Yonkers Officials Are Extorting Money from Homeowners

Mike Spano what's going on with "The Water Boy" Thomas Meier

Thomas Meier has a lot of explaining to do, the homeowners of Yonkers are calling Thomas Meier, Public Works Commissioner "The Water Boy!" What is he doing? Thomas Meier, is giving huge "Water Bills" to homeowners and renters, the "Water Department" is claiming that residents of Yonkers owe the city for an estimated water use, and the homeowners and renters are getting huge water bills! Yonkers Homeowners are getting $6000.00 dollar bills in many cases in the mail box and they're threatened with liens on their property. The city also is claiming pipes in the streets are leaking all over the city and the homeowners have to pay to fix the pipes and sidewalks in 48 hours or else. This administration in the Yonkers City Hall is out of control because this is most definitely extortion. An investigation is needed in Yonkers City Hall.

The Word of God

"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

Collected Quotes from Albert Einstein

The Genius

Albert Einstein is man of great wisdom. Unfortunately his final words before his death were in German and the only person within earshot, was his nurse, spoke only English and did not understand anything he said. Though we'll never know his parting words, here is a list of his most memorable quotes linked above.

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."

--Barbara Ricci

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.

"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 Westchester News is growing rapidly, story, video, article, news documentary; our team is working hard bringing us to the next level. We are livestreaming tv videos, news, shows and live events.

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.
