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?

Read The Story: IRB Charges Teamsters Local 456

The Westchester News will inform you with knowledge, who is the IRB?


The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is "dirty and corrupt" as the Locals they represent! This is not a Brotherhood this is a Cowardhood. The Teamsters Leadership is all "smoke and mirrors" from New York City, Westchester County, from the IBT in Washington D.C. James P.Hoffa and his investigators, and, back to New York City at the IRB Independent Review Board, it's a very small organization doing investigations. All of them are playing "cat and mouse" with the livelihood of men. Teamsters are treated like low class "wet backs" and they're simply uneducated people just working for a paycheck.

The IRB are investigating for the IBT, but, the IBT are covering up the most serious charges of Blackballing and Non-Union Jobs in Westchester County, the charges of "Corruption and Embezzlement" are all "smoke and mirrors" and that's all the IBT wants to focus on, but, aside from that, they're giving the Teamster members false hope. They're giving the members who were blackballed by Doyle and his cronies, false promises they're throwing them a bone just to keep there mouths shut for now, until they unravel this union so things won't get out of hand for the IBT, Teamsters Local 456 is finished, close sources said.

The IBT want the old-timers to retire, so the transition will be easy, they want the new members to think they have a secure future with Teamsters Local 456, but, that's not true because nothing is secure at Local 456.

Here is more false hope, all the men with less time in the union are being told, that if all the old-timers decide to retire, that will move "less timers" up a notch or two. The membership is at the lowest it's ever been and the union has lost a lot of construction company's, that, refuse to sign up with the corrupt union. There is not much union work in Westchester County. Most of the Construction trucks you see on the road are non-union.

Meanwhile, the IBT is hoping that guys like Smitty at Persico Construction in Mount Vernon will decide to retire soon. Let's not forget, how the telephone tough guy, Bernie Doyle threatened "Smitty" for being friends and talking with Peter Ricci, when Peter Ricci worked at Persico Construction in Mount Vernon, New York.

Let's not forget that the Persico Construction Drivers List was closed to a 30-year member of Teamsters Local 456, Peter Ricci. Peter Ricci, put his time in-to-get on the list at Persico. The former President of Local 456, Bob Roberge, told Peter Ricci, the list is closed. Why? Eddie Doyle.

The list opened up for all the Executives at Local 456, the newiest driver at Persico Construction is the former Vice President Syd Goldstein. Here is the best, since Peter Ricci "Was refused" to get on the Persico Drivers List, Paige Pavlas, Julio Sophia both on the hiring hall committee with less time than Peter Ricci, they both got on the drivers list. Then, After Big Syd, got thrown out from being Vice President of Local 456, the IBT, put him to work at Persico Construction as a driver, and guess what happened? Two union members were ahead of him to get on the drivers list, yes that's right, Persico construction had to put two more Teamsters on the drivers list to add "Syd Goldstein" onto Persico's drivers list, Teamsters last names Miranda and Gulliano!

The IRB investigator Mr. Swalli said, when the corrupt Vice President Syd Goldstein was put on the Persico Drivers List, "You cannot keep a man from making a living! Tell us Mr. Swalli, why didn't you say that to Peter Ricci and all the other union members who were blackballed at Local 456? Who's side are you on Mr. Swalli?

After the list was closed for Peter Ricci, the blackballing got out of hand, when Eddie Doyle used his teamster cronies to hand out newsletters and bad mouthed Peter Ricci and his family at Local 456 union hall and put the newsletter in with paychecks at construction sites like, Core Construction, Ridge Hill, etc. The Teamsters Union delegation did that to a 30-year member. Teamsters Local 282 leadership, seems to be no better than Teamsters Local 456, google them.

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union is embedded with corruption and it's so widespread throughout the local's! They abuse and intimitate the members, and the international teamsters looks the other way. James P. Hoffa is not innocent. This organization is a communist union, all the leadership are living like kings, and the union members can bearly pay their household bills. If , the leadership of a local gets caught with their hands in the cookie jar and even if their caught blackballing, as in, Peter Ricci vs. Teamsters Local 456. The International Teamsters did everything in their power to get this lawsuit dismissed! What does that say about the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Mr. James P. Hoffa? He's no better than Eddie Doyle. Does the International and James P. Hoffa, really, want to take Doyle down with his Cronies? Not at all.

For Example: Guy's like a Ron Wilkins who were blackballed, intimidated and abused since 1986 by Eddie Doyle for years and years finally got on a list at Byram Concrete. but, guy's like this are only working 2-3 days a week, it's not even a full week's paycheck, it's not enough to cover their Health and Welfare medical coverage. Nothing is left, so much money has been embezzled through the Health and Welfare Office, that, the funds have twindled to nothing.

Eddie Doyle is an evil man, and he has done some really rotten things to union members like this, he said, Ron Wilkins peed in a cup for a drug test and the test came back he was on drugs. Ron, lost 10-years of having his union book because Eddie Doyle lied. Here's the truth, the new IBT regime "Leadership" at Local 456, says there is no record or history of such a drug test. Tell me, will "Ron Wilkins" get those years back he lost? Will Doyle pay for what he did to Ron? Hell, no. Let's say, the IBT gives Ron his time back that he lost, than, he would have 28-years in the union, but, what about all the annuity he lost? The IBT union leadership is so money hungry and corrupt, I doubt, that will ever happen. However, they should give Ron his time back he lost, and hold Eddie Doyle responsible for what he did.

The most interesting thing about the Vice President Syd Goldstein, there is once upon a time he did the same thing to his adopted son Jazz Jasper. Syd said Jazz failed a drug test, and he got rid of the kid after the boy's mother divorced him. Big Syd sounds like a nice guy, yeah right! Read More

The IBT wants the IRB to sweep "the truth" under the rug, but, in the court lawsuit papers they even admitted wrong doing but, they have all the judges in place and influenced in New York to say the Lawsuit is Time Barred, but, it's not. Peter Ricci's Lawsuit against the Teamsters Union Local 456 was denied by the highest court in New York State, Court of appeals, now, the Ricci's will go to "The National Right To Work Legal Defense Foundation" and bring this lawsuit to the highest court in the United States of America.

This is David versus Goliath! We will continue this fight against the Teamsters all the way to the United States Supreme Court. We will expose every corrupt Court, Judge, Organization or any Person who disregarded the truth and promoted injustice to this case. All we wanted was our day in court, and they refuse to give us our day in court because they are all corrupt!

"There is no Justice, the "corruption" in the New York State Courts is so widespread that all these judges that swore to uphold the laws of Justice, they're all corrupt. These New York State Judges belong in jail, they don't follow the law, and they looked the other way. The Appeals Court cannot be trusted, it's a cesspool full of corrupt judges, court clerks, high rolling Attorney's and political favors, we know its true, we saw what they do, we experienced it first hand! These New York State Judges wear stained dirty robes, and they give regular folks who are looking for justice a false sense of hope."

We'll tell you the truth about what's "really" going on behind the scenes with the IRB investigation, and the IBT "smoke and mirrors" leadership with IBT Trustee Bernadette Kelly aka.Bernadette McCulloch, and, Local 282 President and IBT Trustee Thomas Gesualdi.

James P. Hoffa, President of The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is hoping it all goes as planned in the near future. Hoffa must coverup all the corruption because "The National Right To Work Legal Defense Foundation" is on the tail of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union. They're exposing all the corruption! All Across this country, state after state, The Right To Work, are turning every state into non-union states because all of the International Teamsters coverups, from organized crime, blackballing and non-union work consuming the industry, while so many union members are unemployed because of it.

Just look at the roadways in New York, and, you will clearly see union corruption, just look at the roads there full of pot holes and patches. New York and New Jersey, Union and Non-Union Company's both get the bids to fix the roadways and company's in Westchester County. The blacktop company's are using cheaper mix with recycled material, and it's cheap and it doesn't last. There is too much of the money going around just to payoff and grease the palms of the people at the top. Construction Company's are all going non-union because they are sick of being muscled by the corrupt Teamsters union's leadership.

All the men that were blackballed by this union, starting with Peter Ricci, a 30-year member, the IBT wants the IRB to look the other way. The full story about the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, no worries, you'll read it right here on The Westchester News. Meanwhile, the corrupt former leadership at Local 456, are free to go running with the funds, they're getting away with the all the "embezzled funds" to enjoy their retirement, it's a coverup, close sources said. Read More updated! The Westchester News will inform you with knowledge, who is the IRB? Coming Soon!

DA: Woman accused of killing kayaker fiance confessed

Man claims accused fiance killer frequented swinger's club in New Jersey

MONROE - A Monroe man is claiming to know accused fiance killer Angelika Graswald

Rodney VanDunk says Graswald and Vincent Viafore were regulars before becoming a couple of now-closed sex club Illusions, which was inside the Sheridan Crossroads hotel in New Jersey. He described Graswald as a "vulture" who "was just looking for a sugar daddy."

Angelika Graswald, 35, has been indicted on a second-degree murder charge in the death of Vincent Viafore in choppy, chilly water on the evening of April 19.

This story matches exactly to that disgustingly perverted movie, "Gone Girl." If you have morals don't watch this movie, it's completely satanic and evil.

All these people involved in this real life drama murder mystery, rated X, they're all dysfunctional dirty pigs with no morals.

These people are making jackasses out of the police and the district attorney.

The friend of the couple, Rodney VanDunk, he's no hero, he's just another mentally unstable dirty pig.

All these people involved in this murder mystery are satanic and evil.

This is more likely a hoax to make law enforcement look stupid, if there is no dead body, than, there is no murder!

All the evidence leads to the movie "Gone Girl." the stupid Cops and District Attorney should investigate the evidence of this crime with the Rated X movie, "Gone Girl."

These people's minds are very sick. She confessed, to what? "Gone Girl."

Al DelBello, former Westchester County exec, dies at 80

Al Del Bello, was a true politician. He went from modest means growing up in Yonkers to; in his senior years building a mansion for him and his wife in Lewisboro, in upstate New York. His property has a long private driveway that leads to his mansion on top of a hill, it has an absolutely breath taking view. Al Del Bello, certainly did a lot with his life, no doubt all his dreams came true. He lived the American Dream. LOHUD

The National Press Club

Formerly jailed reporters to advocate for federal shield law, 6 pm June 1

More than a dozen reporters who've been fined, detained or jailed in their support of First Amendment liberties will gather at the National Press Club at 6 p.m. Monday, June 1, for a symposium in support of International Whistle Blowers.

Registration is $5 for Club members; $10 for the public.

"The men and women who've defended the First Amendment with their sacrifices represent newspapers, television stations, bloggers, film makers and editors. They've never assembled before. It is truly an historic occasion," said John M. Donnelly, chairman of the National Press Club's Press Freedom Committee.

The event will be moderated by 1991 National Press Club's National Freedom of the Press Award recipient Brian Karem. It will feature a panel discussion showcasing journalists Judith Miller, Vanessa Leggett, Libby Averyt, Jim Taricani, Josh Wolf, Lisa Abraham, David Kidwell, Sid Gaulden, Andrew Shain, Brad Stone, Timothy Crews and Bruce Anderson.

The symposium is sponsored by The National Press Club Journalism Institute, The Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press, The First Amendment Coalition, Expose Facts.Org, The Maryland Delaware District of Columbia Press Association and the Institute for Public Accuracy.

During the symposium, the group will discuss a national shield law to protect reporters from prosecution.

"Every state in the union has a shield law to protect reporters, and the National Press Club is on record saying there is every reason for the federal government to supply the same support for reporters doing their jobs," Donnelly said. Available Audio, Video & Transcripts 2006-2015

Let's Keep America Strong

While the police and street thugs are running around this country acting like militants against each other, the ISIS terrorist are getting in place to attack!

The public is "Not" being diligent or observant to the world around them, New Yorkers have desensitized themselves from being discriminative toward anyone.

This is a problem because they just don't care what's going on around them, they live by this motto "live and let live" and it may cost them their lives. This motto, "Live and Let Live" has weakened the foundation of our homeland security here in America. If, homeland security, and the FBI, and the people continue looking the other way, it's over, no one is safe.

The United States Congress, must pass a law to protect Americans against radicals living in this country,it's time to put the pressure on them, especially those that are wearing badges and carrying guns, those that are posing as security guards in public places as casino's or even working in public malls, supermarkets, movie theaters, and own businesses, etc.

The time is here to discriminate against these radials living in this country, pay attention to the world around you. These radials act like there nice people, but, they're not nice people, they hate Americans, they especially hate christians, jews, and gays or anyone else who is not like them or with them.

The signs you should look for are, rapid change in any certain place or area, aggressive behavior, aggressive separation of difference, serious straight conversation, aggressive cold behavior, cultural clothing and face coverings, they are testing the public and their desensitizing the public to make their rise in America easy.

If, you get a feeling that something is not right, than, it's not right. Any kind of these signs can become a dangerous situation rapidly with these extremist in America, and their side by side you, working, living, and riding in public transportation with you, everyday.

Radials are posing as building inspectors, bridge and tunnel inspectors, law enforcement, postal workers, and many other positions throughout this country. How many of you really know your neighbors? Ask any real estate agent who's living around you!

The radicals are desensitizing the public.

For Example:

If you see a man walk into a McDonald's with an extra large red plastic gas container, are you going to ignore him and keep eating and continue talking among yourselves, and look the other way? Well, I just saw that happen yesterday, May 7, 2015, and, the people just ignored him. (Desensitized)

If a woman gets on the bus wearing black and covering her face with a scarf burka, are you going to ignore her and continue to day dream, sleep, and continue to talk among yourselves and look the other way? Well, I saw that happen recently on a Liberty Line Bee-Line bus ride, and, the people just ignored her. (Desensitized)

When you walk into a supermarket, pay close attention who's cutting your meat, these radials have cut off the heads of many innocent Americans, they are well trained radial terrorist! Don't be desensitized! Don't be afraid to discriminate against anyone you think is a radial terrorist. "Stop Being Desensitized." If you have guns, load them and use them, if terrorist should attack and try to take you hostage in your own home, shoot to kill.

Keep your heads up people, pay attention and be diligent, and that is how you'll keep your heads on your shoulders, capish! Let's keep America strong!

New York City Police Officer Shot In Face Dies

New York City police officer Brian Moore died at a Queens hospital on Monday, May 4, 2015, two days after he was shot in the face through the window of his unmarked police car by a suspect he was trying to stop for adjusting his waistband.

Brian Moore, 25 years old, was pronounced dead from his injuries after being taken off life support at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he had been in an coma since undergoing surgery for his injuries. A 5-year veteran NYPD Officer Brian Moore had severe bleeding in his brain after Demetrius Blackwell shot him, sources said. Charges Upgraded to Murder After Officer Shot by Ex-Con Dies, DA Says.

This is extremely sad news that this young-man Brian Moore, 25-years-old, has lost his life for nothing, absolutely nothing. His life was just beginning and to be killed by a street thug is heartbreaking. It's just very sad. It's always the good ones that get killed, and it's sad. We are living in lawless times, right here at home in America we are at war on our city streets. Sometimes there is savages on both sides of the law, but all these killings are senseless. It needs to stop, all these vendetta's need to stop. Everyone's life is worth something. I pray all these killings stop without pointing fingers at anyone. "No one is above the law, no one." Justice can only be served when it is served by the truth. We must humble ourselves before God, get on our knees, bow our heads, and talk with God! That's the only way to stop this evil. We must draw close to God to make this evil stop! Lord hear our prayers. Read More WSJ NYPD DIES

Being humble is the only way to stop these killings of this vendetta between cops and street thugs and gangs, also criminal cops, and yes criminal cops do exist we've all seen the video's, especially the video of Eric Garner, he was murdered by the NYPD, for selling loose cigarettes, it was a senseless murder. The NYPD can call it what they want, but, the public knows the truth because the camera lens does not lie.

* Justice is about accountability, without accountability, there is no Justice!

* Why do the cops always get the "bad guy" when the "bad guy" kills a cop, but, when the "bad guy" is one of their own who kills a suspect in custody, as in, Eric Garner, why don't they ever get those "bad guys?" Please tell us why? MAIL BOX

* RESISTING ARREST is a joke, it should not be a charge against a suspect!

Black people believe, "Black Lives matter, and the only piece of data the police need to make a decision is someone's black skin color." White people believe, "All Lives Matter." The truth about the color theory is the only "Color" needed for any corrupt cop to get away with murdering an innocent civilian, there's only one color and that color is "Blue."

Murder is murder, it doesn't matter who pulled the trigger. If, you think the cop that killed Eric Garner is a hero? Well, you have a right to your opinion, but, the rest of us New Yorkers don't think cops that kill people like "Eric Garner" are hero's, we think cops like that are murderers.

The cops that murdered Eric Garner, are no different than the thug that killed two NYPD police officers sitting in their patrol car or officer Brian Moore. These killings have to do with ego, and ego, is extremely blinding and it stands in the way of reason, reality and truth. The NYPD cops that murdered Eric Garner should be indicted for murder too! These decisions should not be a one way street!

The truth is the most powerful weapon against corruption, and, I use the truth everyday to fight against it. If, you want to be corrupt for whatever reason or excuse you try to make, that's your choice, but, I hate corruption because it makes innocent people suffer. I'll listen to you, but, you'll never get me to agree with you, if, your being corrupt.

The NYPD set the stage by having no remorse for killing Eric Garner, a father of six. The cop that has caused an uproar in NYC, has a big mouth, he's been all over the Local and National News, his name is Patrick Lynch. He calls the Police Force "A Band of Brothers, he cries when a police officer dies, but, he had no remorse when the NYPD killed Eric Garner, how ironic is that?

The family, friends, neighbors and strangers all around this country cried too, when the NYPD killed the big guy with the big smile, Eric Garner was a big teddy bear. The NYPD said, he was resisting arrest, he wasn't resisting because if he did resist he would have done damage to everyone of those bully cops who tackled him to the ground! The NYPD had no mercy on Eric Garner! Eric Garner's beautiful loving family, got no justice. The public is outraged!

How ironic the Police Force calls themselves "A BAND OF BROTHERS" because that's the same name the street gangs call themselves "A Band of Brothers." It's a vendetta, and we are all learning that two wrongs don't make a right, aren't we?

When a cop dies the NYPD pay off their house and give their families hundreds of thousands of dollars, how wonderful, but when a suspect dies in custody, the NYPD says, too bad he shouldn't have resisted arrest! What about the family of Eric Garner, his wife left without a husband, his mother is left without a son, and his six children are left without a father, how sad is that? There should be a fund for every family who loses their life senselessly at the hands of the NYPD, not just the cops family. Everyone's life matters, have some remorse when a civilian dies at the hands of the NYPD or any other police department. I wonder sometimes, who are the real savages?

Stop the killings, shoot the "bad" criminals in the leg, practice your aim, if someone is running away from a traffic ticket or their selling loose cigarettes or they're carrying a pocket knife or their a suspect in any crime, remember, they are presumed innocent, until proven guilty, just stop killing criminals for senseless reasons.

Street thugs are reacting to all these killer criminal cops and law enforcement across this country who have killed suspects and innocent dogs for senseless reasons without having any remorse.

Arrogance is not the answer. When a cop kills someone or even someone's dog, it should be the responsibility of the Police Officer, to be held accountable for the damage and grief they have caused a family. The police should have remorse for taking the life of another human being or the life of an animal, and the problem is they simply don't have any remorse unless it's one of their own, 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.

New York City Protests For Freddie Gray

"Everyone's Lives Do Matter"

Put Your Guns Down, And Be Men, Stop The Murdering. More Than 100 Arrested as Thousands Rally to Protest Freddie Gray's Death in Union Square on Wednesday, April 29, 2015, to decry the death of Freddie Gray, who died earlier this month from injuries he suffered in police custody in Baltimore.

Freddie Gray's Spine had been snapped, 10 Years Before Freddie Gray, Baltimore Police 'Accidentally' Snapped another man's Spine, A man accused of public urination rode in a similar police van, suffered a spinal injury, and died.

Freddie Gray gave a cry of pain as the arresting officers hoisted him to his feet. Something seemed wrong with his legs as he was dragged in handcuffs to a police van.

"Look at his leg!" a witness can be heard shouting on a cellphone video. "That leg look broke! His leg look broke! You all dragging him like that!"

But the 25-year-old's legs do not seem to have been the source of the pain that caused Gray to cry out again. His head was hanging down, and he may have already suffered a spinal injury such as could have been exacerbated by a failure to immobilize his head and neck before moving him.

More likely, the Baltimore Police did it again, Freddie Gray suffered the devastating and ultimately fatal spinal trauma while in Police custody and died.

"Something happened before and after he was placed in that police van," a close source, and even, Michael Davey, lawyer for the Baltimore police union, said at a press conference on Wednesday.

"Discrimination is necessary to be protected against terrorist"

When you get on a "Metro Bus, Subway or Metro North Train" in Westchester County or New York beware of your surroundings, don't look the other way or ignore when a woman dressed in black gets on a bus or train with her face covered with a burqa veil because you are desensitizing yourself from seeing this, and, you don't know who's behind that black masked covering their face or what they are capable of doing. If they blow up a bus, you will not be able to identify them. The burqa veil should not be allowed to be wore in public places or on public transportation or where large crowds are gathered. We wouldn't allow a mask man to ride the bus or train, therefore, a burqa veil should not be allowed either. The FBI are lack when it comes to fighting the crime on terror in New York City and Westchester County area. They don't have a clue what these terrorist are planning to do, the FBI are lack. A close source said, be vigilant, something big is definitely going to happen.

We tell you the truth, so if you can't handle the truth, than, please stay out of The Westchester News! We expose public corruption and corrupt politicians, actually, we expose anyone who hurts innocent people. I say to all our readers, stop looking the other way, stop ignoring the world around you. Stop being foolish!

The truth is this, New York is a melting pot. I can feel it too, I don't know what it is, but, I talk with a lot of people and they can feel it too, it's a feeling, that something "extremely" uncontrollable is going to happen in the New York area! We should get ready and be prepared for something "Out of Control" happening, stop looking the other way, be attentive to the world around you, it's better for you to be safe than sorry. If you see something don't ignore it! MAIL BOX

Bruce Jenner is completely confused, he said he went to church, and he wonders what God thinks about what he is doing! Well than, he should open "The Holy Bible" and read it!

What Bruce Jenner is doing is absolutely wrong, everything about what he is doing is wrong! He should stop this before the devil devours him completely.

Sex is in the mind, his mind is very sick and perverted, he's confused, let's hope someone in la la land will tell him the truth!

All these younger "Transgender" that exist today, are the results of vaccines they got as babies, the United States Government, is responsible for all the Transgender kids you see all around you today! It makes me sad to see these young Transgender kids like that, smh, it's not their fault this happened to them, these young kids are innocent.

Bruce Jenner is a sickman, he is mentality unstable, he is a very confused man with a lot of issues and a lot of money and time on his hands.

You know who did this to them? The United States Government and experimental science did this in the lab while they were playing around with our DNA and creating vaccines in government labs. That's how this happened! They even caused autisum by giving babies vaccines. I wouldn't take a flu shot vaccine "today" even if the goverment offered me a million dollars because I don't trust our government. They are creating drugs that are killing people "left and right" it's a "Billion Dollar Business" D-R-U-G-S INCLUDES medical marijuana it won't be long before people start dying from smoking a tainted crop, addictions and deadly side effects in medications are killing people everyday. And, we know the government did this to all these "Transgender Gays, and Autistic kids that exist today. God didn't do this, the government did this. Being gay is one thing, being transgender is something else. Our government has become Dr. Frankenstein!

For Example:

If a man or woman, wakes up one morning and decides he/she wants to have sex with a dog because he/she was born with a "small penis or a woman was born with a small vagina," should they have the right to do this? Should they have a right if they decide adding a tail to their body will make them feel good about themselves? Should we have to accept this? Should the United States Supreme Court give these people the right to do this or should they be declared insane?

What's next? A man or woman decide they want to tongue kiss with their dog on public streets because it makes them feel good about themselves? Should we have to tolerate anymore of this FREAK SHOW?

What about these people that are tattooing their entire bodies, this is the mark of the beast, therefore, what do we call them, normal?

When I was growing up these freaks were part of the freak show in the circus, we paid an extra dollar to see them. What is wrong with these people?

The children are becoming more and more confused and the world is becoming more and more like a circus, it's a freak show, America has become a circus.

Here's the future, "Hey, friends there goes my grandpa in the black dress with the heels and big breasts, he's also my grandma." Bruce Jenner better stay in "Hollywood" if that's what he's hoping to achieve, he's a very unbalanced man.

Public bathrooms, Transgender people like Bruce Jenner should have a separate "public toilet" "Transgender Bathroom" should be seperate from the rest of us, why should "Christian Children" be exposed to such unstable behavior.

At least with a gay person, you know what they are because they know who they are, a woman likes having sex with a woman, and a man likes having sex with a man. It's simple, it's done, it's acceptable to a point, it's explainable to a six year old.

These older "Transgender" have no morals they will have sex with women or men, some even have children and grandchildren with the opposite sex, like Bruce Jenner did, then they decide to change their sex because they need attention and ratings, they need a sense of belonging, so they wanna become freaks in the Hollywood Circus.

Then, they want the rest of us "Normal People" in the world to accept the freak trend as being normal? Well, that is not acceptable to us Christians, and we will not accept it nor embrace, such wicked behavior. Maybe in Hollywood it's acceptable, but, not in the christian church nor should it ever be accepted in the church! God does not accept nor teach us christians to accept this "perverted" confused lifestyle! This lifestyle is of the devil.

Do you really think that all the rest of us in the world will accept this sick-minded behavior? I'm not buying this bull crap because children are being exposed to it, your confusing innocent children. Transgender behavior should have a special needs education, they should not go to regular public elementary schools.

Christian children should not have to be exposed to such perverted freakish behavior.

Bruce Jenner is a very unstable man, and in the end his "Confused Mind" will eventually cave in, and nothing good will come out of this confusion in his mind, absolutely nothing. The death rate is extremely high with an unstable mind like his, he's confused and unbalanced. This is a very dangerous game he's playing, and in the end, it's gonna be tragic and sad.

Hollywood is losing their grip on reality, what's real and what's fake? In Hollywood everything is plastic and fake, nothing is real. "Absolutely No Morals Exist In Hollywood." MAIL BOX

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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'm The Wife Of A Teamster Local 456 Speaks Out

 "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".
