Larkin & Lacey

Posted on by

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey started an organization based on their passion for America to be an equal society. The organization, the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, is well-known for the efforts that it makes to help Latinos and immigrants attain the highest pinnacle of dignity in American society. These groups are having trouble due to a longstanding social paradigm of white-supremacy, bigotry and exclusion. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://www.phillypurge.com/2017/06/23/jim-larkin-michael-lacey-make-the-list-of-civil-rights-protectors/ and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_New_Times

Some of the honorable organizations that Lacey and Larkin support include the Colibri Center for Human Rights, Phoenix Immigrant Justice Project, Kino Border Initiative, Si Se Puede Foundation, Can The Border Divide Us?, Arizona DREAM Act Coalition and Arizona Justice Project.

They operate behind the idea that undocumented immigrants aren’t actually being picked on because of their legal status—they are being picked on because they are seen as “undesirable” for racial reasons.

Their undocumented status is just an excuse for authorities and citizens to pick on racial minorities. If authorities and citizens really do pick on undocumented people for citizenship reasons, that is still not an acceptable excuse. Picking on people for being undocumented shows bigotry and xenophobia toward foreigners and immigrants. Read more:  Michael Lacey | LinkedIn and Michael Lacey | Twitter

Sheriff Arpaio is guilty of picking on people for being undocumented, as well as for being Latino. He is notorious for years of taking advantage of his political position to do this.

Throughout the years, many Latinos who were citizens felt thoroughly insulted as he accused them of being “illegal aliens.” He insulted and bothered so many people that lawsuits and court cases were brought up against him and the county that he worked for. Read more:

Arpaio did so much damage that in the eyes of liberal-minded people he is the devil. To make matters worse, he refuses to apologize for everything that he has done. In fact, he justifies it by claiming that what he did is in his job description.

This is the problem with law enforcement officials—they think that they can do whatever they want just because they are authority figures and possess firearms. There are too many incidents to count where police officers have used brute force to wrongfully murder people and animals.

Sheriff Arpaio is also a politician. Politicians can be pretty brazen because they wield so much political power. They are able to pull a lot of strings to make horrible things happen. Such a situation occurred when Sheriff Arpaio pulled strings to have Maricopa County issue subpoenas to Lacey and Larkin.

The deeds of politicians and law enforcement officials should be checked every so often, because they are in a position of power. Politicians, law enforcement officials and even anyone who works for the government is in a position of power.

People in these roles sometimes complain that they aren’t paid enough and want more, but they are still in positions of authority and power where they can really do a lot of damage to people’s lives.

Lacey and Larkin are sensible to put out news about the misdeeds of local politicians and law enforcement officials, because the general population needs to stay informed about these things.

Who is Dr. Mark McKenna?

Radicalism Addressed By JNS Author Adam Milstein

Posted on by

There are many areas the philanthropist Adam Milstein of Hager Pacific Partners has taken an interest in and hopes to bring to the attention of the world through his work as a blogger and writer for the “Jewish News Syndicate”. A former member of the Israeli Defence Force during the Yom Kippur War, Adam Milstein has been an active member of the Jewish community across the globe for decades and uses his voice to raise awareness of the problems he sees facing the community and the world as a whole through the JNS publication.

Milstein has recently been concerned with the rise in radicalism from both the left and right of politics as the Jewish community has often been linked to both sides of the radical world by those with opposing voices. As he has seen the rise in anti-semitism of recent years, Adam Milstein believes he must speak out against the constant issues he believes are damaging the political landscape of the U.S.

In his recent JNS article, Adam Milstein discussed the options open to the people of the world to battle a rising level of rhetoric being targeted towards the Jewish community from all sides. One of the areas which have caused a great deal of concern for Milstein is the growing links between liberals in the U.S. and member of the radical Muslim community who have referred to members of the Jewish community as “white supremacists”. The USC graduate believes the links between the radical left and liberal groups is damaging for all as recent protests in American colleges and universities have expressed a desire to blame the Jewish community and Israel for issues across the Middle East.

Anti-semitism is now a new problem for the people of the world but one which has caused violence and damaging rhetoric to become the norm across much of the world for centuries. However, Adam Milstein sees members of the so-called “alt-right” stirring anti-semitic feeling using age-old tactics designed to damage the reputation of the Jewish community across the globe.

Compassion is Key at Aloha Construction

Posted on by

Hiring a contractor can conjure up feelings of uncertainty in most homeowners. Will they complete the job? Will they guarantee their work? Will they track dirt into the living room? Finding a reputable contractor can sometimes feel more like gambling with the outcome left up to the fates. Fortunately, Aloha Construction is raising the bar for this industry. Located in Lake Zurich, Illinois, Aloha is family-owned and has been in business for over ten years. David Farbaky, President and CEO, sums up his philosophy as, “being focused on what we do best; providing outstanding products and unsurpassed customer service.” Practicing this principal, Aloha Construction has grown from a small family business into a leading contracting firm that services all of Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

In 2017, Aloha won the prestigious BBB Torch Award for Ethics. Once a business is nominated, an individual panel reviews the company to see how they measure up to the Better Business Bureau’s 6 Principles of Trust! The business nominated must meet high standards of ethics with their employees, their customers, as well as their commitment to the community. Aloha Construction beat out its competitors based on their charitable contribution of creating social opportunities for the children of their community. The Torch Award Program highlighted a partnership between Aloha Construction and Omni Youth. Together, they provided an all-expense paid Christmas shopping spree for children in need. In addition, they sent a child with Congenital Heart Disease along with twelve of his friends to their first Bulls Game. And just this year, Aloha has donated 100 tickets to the Boys & Girls Club Bloomington-Normal for the Central Illinois Flying Aces Fan Appreciation Night, along with donating $1965 to the Camp One Step by Children’s Oncology Services.

Stream Energy Shows Their Charitable Side

Posted on by

Stream Energy is a national-level provider of electricity, wifi, phone service, and home security services. Founded in 2005 by Rob Snyder and Pierre Koshakji, the company began offering its services first in Texas. In 2008 they expanded business to Georgia, and then in five northeast states after that. Their meteoric rise seems poised to continue, but that is not the subject of this article. I want to focus on their philanthropic activities.

Stream Energy recently launched a philanthropy organization called Stream Cares, which has been engaged in a lot of charitable work, especially in their home state of Texas. Most of their recent efforts have been focused on assisting the victims of hurricane Harvey. While the company has been involved in charitable and philanthropic activities for about 12 years, they have now chosen to formalize this with the founding of this organization. The organization has good relations with both the Red Cross and Habitat For Humanity.

Stream Energy, through Stream Cares, donated 25,000 dollars to the Red Cross in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. It is worth noting that they were one of the first companies to do so. They have also been accepting donations of all sorts for the victims of hurricane Harvey, so that anyone can help out through them.

One of the primary things that Stream Energy has tried to do with Stream Cares has been to combat the homelessness problem, which is particularly bad in the Dallas area. They have partnered with another group called Hope Supply Company to provide resources and assistants to the homeless in their area. This organization, funded by Stream Energy, delivers diapers, clothing, school supplies, medical care and a whole lot more for homeless children. They even organized a trip to a local water park for over 1000 homeless children. The fact that they could easily find 1000 homeless children shows you just how bad the problem is getting.

This isn’t the first time Stream has stepped in after a natural disaster to help. On the day after Christmas in 2016, a series of tornadoes touched down in North Texas. Stream quickly partnered with The Salvation Army to provide relief. They raised thousands of dollars in donations, which the company then matched.

It’s never a bad idea to give credit where credit is due, and clearly this business has gone above and beyond what anyone could reasonably expect.

Larkin & Lacey

Posted on by

The U.S. District Judge Susan B. Bolton formally validated President Donald Trump’s pardon of Joe Arpaio in October 2017. Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa County in Arizona, had become a controversial figure in both American politics and the justice system in his six terms.

He was previous convicted of criminal contempt for ignoring a judge’s order in a 2007 racial profiling case. He was sentenced prior to being criminally sentenced.

Arpaio is most known for his controversial opinions on illegal immigration and his tent city prison. He is also well-known for a case for a more controversial case involving two newspaper publishers named Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey.

The way they explain it, they were harassed by Arpaio during his years as county sheriff just because they sought the truth. Lacey and Larkin, former co-owners of Phoenix New Times, sought the truth on what regarding some issues with the treatment of Hispanics, torture, brutal jail conditions and jail suicides.

Lacey, in an interview about Arpaio’s pardon, reflected about the people who were jailed in the former sheriff’s jail. He called it a failure in the justice system. He (Arpaio) ignores a contempt of court and is pardoned as opposed to being help responsible for people who were abused and tortured in his prison. According to Lacey, their lives and careers were atacked and derailed because of the former sheriff’s rules and regulations.

Lacey did not comment on his run with Arpaio’s alleged rogue criminal system. It happened back in 2007 when Lacey and Larkin were arrested and taken from their homes under the cover of darkness by plainclothes detectives in unmarked cars.

These vehicles had Mexican license plates. They were arrested for a rarely used and known criminal statute that made it a felony to make public a law enforcement official’s address.

The real reason for their bogus arrest, according to the men, was a 2004 investigative article written by their reporter. The article showed Arpaio owed commercial real estate valued at about $700,000.

However, he only made approximately $78,000 a year. Arpaio was allegedly enraged about the story and wanted revenge. He was able to allegedly obtain short-lived revenge by arresting the two co-publishers for a felony.

The next day, the county’s attorney held a press conference announcing criminal charges against Larkin and Lacey were dropped. Read more: Jim Larkin | Angel.co and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

They threatened to sue because they were illegally detained by Arpaio and their First Amendment rights were violated.

The Ninth Circuit Court in 2012 ruled Lacey and Larkin had been arrested without needed probable case. They settled with the county for $3.75 million for the arrest.

This didn’t hold Mark back one bit as he worked hard to help people around the community and clear lots.

Once Mark was finished, he decided to move to Atlanta, Georgia, and try his luck with a new business idea known as ShapeMed, a cosmetic wellness company. This company was so successful that it caught the eye of Life Time Fitness and in 2014 they purchased . the company from Dr. Mark Mckenna
