Open Thread

I was working on a post but I am slammed today and have nothing until tonight or tomorrow.

A side issue: Where in the hell is Blanchard? Does he think he can rest on his laurels just because he made it to the pinnacle of the Mallory-impeaching masses?

I have seen it happen all the time. Guys get made, they go soft and lose the desire. Staying on top is just as tough as getting there. We are the world wide leader in impeach Mallory news. That still means something to people Mr. Blanchard. Greatness such as ours comes with high expectations. I am calling Blanchard out.

I pasted thes "Socko stories" from the Daen's blog. There must be a ton of crooked deals these guys did. Chime in if you know about them:

Yes indeedy, Socko’s Ghost, Socko Wiethe & Sid Weil were always tightening the choker chain on Daddy Mallory & Bill Bowen. Most of the time, one couldn’t find Senator Bowen. Not even his constituents. Basically the only time you saw him was when it was election time. Then, he’d show up, shaved, barbered, smelling sweet & looking like a dandy. Daddy Mallory showed up in the wards when he was called on the carpet by the bosses & was ordered to get out there & talk with the folks.

When the folks knew he was going to visit a neighborhood, they’d roll out the BBQ grills, cook up a nice All-American feast, everyone would break bread, listen to political updates & everything would be swell, hunkey-dory. Generally, Mallory would drag Bowen with him, seeing these 2 boys were always in the dog house.

One of Socko & Sid’s smartest moves at that time was Rep. Helen Rankin. The late Rep. Rankin was a hard working, honest woman, busted down barriers & she got her constituents exactly what they wanted & needed. Mrs. Rankin didn’t play dirty politics, nor hanky panky. She took her job very seriously. I was deeply saddened when she retired & devastated when she passed away. She was Cincinnati’s heroine in Columbus.

That is true that Daddy Mallory wanting to conceal his bribe money. Not only did Socko get dibs off License Bureaus & that came close to being a huge scandal, real close - Socks was also on the take on liquor licenses.

Politics compared to today, that was chump change & the politicians insured the police & their families were well taken care of at Christmas time. Widows of police officers & the children raked in over the holidays. Firefighters, too. That’s just how it went. If those boys weren’t stretching the law as to be outrageously illegal, the police let them go. Why create a mess & have ‘em before Judge Shannon, Judge Schwab, Judge Mestemaker & get the goodies & the extra pocket money cut off?

Now, it’s winner take all & there’s plenty of crooks in the pot thinking they’re going to be a winner. It’s a much different society & money needs to be accounted for. The standards have changed & there’s such a thing as accountablility.

However, the Mallorys think this is still the 60s & the 70s. JFK is still president, the Mallorys are still fighting segregation, Castro’s blockaded & the Berlin Wall goes up tomorrow.

A wise attorney told this to me ages ago - you can push your money & interests from one corner to the next & eventually it will catch up to you. Since that time, I’ve watched Marvin Warner get backed against the wall, Dickie Weiland, & countless others. Then when Daddy Mallory started pimping his products of stud services, the clock started ticking down.

The Mallorys have no one to blame but themselves for the mess they’re in now. No one. Bill Seitz, that ruthless crook, will have to move heaven & earth to clear up this entire mess. There’s too much evidence out there that he cannot ignore & wave off.

Ghost, thanks for the walk down memory lane. In looking back, one sees how wrong it really was & it’s led to what’s taking place today. But back then, the folks were blinded by politics. They trusted their politicians to do them right.

Thanks for the additional Socko stories.
They all are pieces of this very complex tapestry of deception.
It explains the theiving thought process of Dale, Dad and Mark.
It explains so much.
dear readers: please share your Socko, old man Mallory graft stories.
We can write a book or stir up enough crap to bring the Mallory Mafia down.

BTW, Ken Blackwell was a democrat back then. Dean, parties don’t matter....it’s the back room deals of the power brokers.

Dean, Socko’s Ghost is right. Parties are a name only. If one won’t endorse & back you, the other one will, if the butter is thick enough on the bread.

Basically, they all do their dirt in the same pot. When there’s like-mindedness amongst a group of them, that’s when the back room door is opened, everyone takes a seat & the deal’s cooked. There’s a little something for everyone after talking over the deal.

If the particular deal on the table isn’t exactly to one’s liking, they’re encouraged to stick around. The promise is that the next time around, we’re going to take care of your pet deal.

In their minds, all these party affiliates (& that includes the lesser parties, too), it’s all about the art of the deal & how much in “commissions & concessions” they can get off the thing. Party affiliation really doesn’t mean spit. You just keep your eye on the cast of characters sashaying into that back room.

Back in Socko Wiethe’s times, when he was a for-real Party Boss, there were the dirty deals, but, gosh gee whiz, at the end of the day, your constituents HAD to be listened to, taken care of & their demands met promptly. If you couldn’t do that, your name didn’t go on the ticket the next time around. That was law, the end of your political career, end of your story.

Dean, don’t be shocked or surprised that there’s a mix of parties at that back room table. That’s been going on for ages. Everyone is scratching each other’s backs.

Who in the hell was Socko? Ham county chair for the Dems? How do you get a nick like Socko?

Friends, some of you never heard of Socko Wiethe. Some of the stuff that's been moved over here from Dean's place is snippets of what I knew about the Hamilton County Dem Party back in those days.

John "Socko" Wiethe was THE PARTY BOSS. He got the name Socko from his extreme athletic days at UC. Not overly tall, but built stronger than a brick wall. Had the attitude to match.

Without a doubt, when Socko Wiethe was Boss, he controlled this town & the politicians who licked his feet to curry favor.

Socko's graft lives.
Need a liquor license?
Pay his daughter $5,000 and it's yours.
No one else in Cincinnati can get you one.
Socko left his graft income to his kids.
Old man Mallory is passing his graft to his kids.
It's a wonderful country!

Anon 3:59, you need to bow down & thank the crafty old codgers. What we've brought to the table helps to buoy up & substantiate the Mallory Legacy of wrongdoing.

Crafty old codgers indeed. You're going to get old one of these days. It's a load of fun. And, you won't care what anyone thinks or says. It took me a long time to get old; I'm enjoying it, but I also attempt to get in this pool & provide something worthwhile to get rid of the criminality in this 'burg. I believe in the Truth Squad, I believe in what they are doing & accomplishing & I consider it my obligation to help out.

Long live the old farts! Long live the Truth Squad!

11:55, "Crafty old codger" is a term of endearment.Take it as a compliment.....I did. Three cheers to the crafty old codgers and the crafty old farts of the world.
The growth of the Truth Squad is a joining of young and old. Black, white, and brown. Luddites and uber-techies. Men, women, straight and glbt. Rich, middle-class and poor. Religious and agnostic. WE ARE THE WORLD!
We have seen the corruption of Dale. This knowledge has led us to the EZ, the Beattys, the Mallory Mafia and the sins of the father.
Dale tried to silence and bully and disenfranchize his entire neighborhood in Oct, Nov, Dec and January. It's on video tape for all the world to see. The invoices are there. The stolen 5/19/06 check is there.
The Truth Squad will have justice.
God bless America and may the Mallory Mafia rot in hell.

7:54,
Good summary.
Somewhere on the Dean's blog, Nate trashes Shirley as an unemployed bum.
Shirley is almost 70, a widow that was married to the same man for almost 50 years. Mother of 5, multiple grandmother and great grandmother, even raising a teenage grandson now. Living on a hard earned social security check. Long time activist and "woman of the year". This woman works 24/7 to help the helpless and is a saint.
N8 rants on with outright lies about all of Dale's opponants. All the facts support the Truth Squad. All the lies are told by N8, the EZ and the Mallorys.

If N8 wants to talk about "unemployed bums", just look at Dale. The dude's last job was at GE in the 90's and he was fired for failing their drug tests,
Dale is a serial wife/girlfriend beater/abuser. He lives in his mommies house and has 30 court cases of deadbeat debts.
Calling Dale a bum gives bums a bad name.
Dale is a bottom feeding scum sucker. The kind of guy N8 looks up to.

Anon 9:18 & 2:12 - I remember when N8 thoroughly trashed Shirley Colbert. And I agree - that lady is a saint. Even while raising her family, she had gainful employment. I know that for a fact. Regardless, she always managed to do charitable work in the West End. Ask any Senior Citizen & the families of the elderly that are left. I trust her completely, without batting an eyelash.

This is just typical N8 blowing out his hiney hole again. His Massa, Jail4Dale, the last I heard, is unemployed. Minus W2 employment.

And let's NEVER forget - until N8 grafted himself to that has-been defense attorney, Kenny Lawson, the runt was a card-carrying member of the IWW (I Won't Work). He spent all of his time licking & sucking up to Kabaka & squatting down at City Hall with him.

And if things keep going, not only will N8 join the ranks once again, but so will Boss-Massa. There's not a law firm in town that will pick up Lawson & his pieces.

Last told, N8's living in Section 8 housing, thanks to his current woman. And she's never been gainfully employed.

But you see, it's so EZ for the rum dums, once they become quasi-legit, they get all sanctimonious, thinking they can call other people out. Like I said, N8's talking thru his crack again.

Nate's rants,
Nate was overheard talking about the Truth Squad.
Privayely he admits they have the goods on Dale and Dale's guilty as hell.
Nate is angry that there are WHITE politcians just as guilty, but no one turns them in.
In other words, Dale's black and N8 protects his bro. Let's not be concerned about facts.
It's a working theory. It couldn't be dumber than the tale N8 is spinning.

Another vandal on a Truth Squader. This time the guy was seen in the act and followed. The perp went straight to ex-ez board chair Len Garret's warehouse/home on Charlote and Central. Was the perp going back for a payoff?
The perp left his jogging jacket at the scene of the crime.
Perp a 5'10" black, 50, 180lbs. Red t shirt, black jogging pants with white stripe on side. Bad teeth, greying short patchy hair.
We now have a connection to an EZ board member appointed by Dale to the paid terror thugs.

Trailed right back to Len's house? At least they make it easy for us.

The police need to be kept up to date on the destructive intimidation tactics of the West End Cabal. What a pack of thugs.

anon 3:49,
Don't worry, the detective has tons of physical evidence. Prints, DNA, clothing, 2 eye witnesses, and the perps destination home address.
The top CPD brass has it as well as FBI.

Regarding the latest thug to attack a Truth Squad member - find out the criminal's name, when he's arrested & court case #. We can look up his appearance date & show up before the Judge in full force.

We can get stay away orders & if this bumbling thug doesn't live in the neighborhood, we can pressure the Judge to order him out of the community.

This baloney will not be tolerated & I'm willing to sit in Court with those who have been assaulted in any manner by those ordered by the hierarchy to perform these criminal acts.
