Subject: Propaganda at it’s best compliments of our County Council

I wanted to send this message clearly to the members of the County Council. I am enjoying the holidays but when the first of the year arrives I am going expose whichever one of you has decided to run to sbynews for your propaganda on the new Bennett middle. If you have no problem being linked with Joe then why don’t one of you man or woman up right now and just say I gave it to him? Because you know if you did any chance of re-election or respect from the community would be gone. It will only take a little investigative reporting to uncover the bread crumbs but rest assured I am dedicating myself to it so this nonsense stops. If you don’t want to support the project you have County Council meetings and forums you can voice your concerns, but running to either one of us for this crappy propaganda game is exactly why this area Is a laughing stock.

Jonathan Taylor

Falling below is the sby news comment:

This coming from a guy who is tied at the hips to Barrie Tilghman, Mike Dunn, Lynn Cathcart, Gary Comegys, Louise Smith, Shanie Shields, Al Webster, Tom McGuire, John Robinson and the like.

My message to Taylor is, do something for your community for once in your life and stop obsessing and threatening others with intimidation. Do you really believe people hold any respect for you?

Between you and Robinson believing the County Council is behind everything I say and do is demented. Nevertheless, you go right after these people, because every time you’ve gone against someone they have won their elections. Or haven’t you realized that as of yet.

By the way Jonathan, you said from the beginning, (years ago) you were coming after me to shut down Salisbury News. How’s it working for you! Your threats are the biggest jokes in town, kind of like a town drunk.

JT is his own worst enemy. My advice is that he FOCUS on his own life and get rid of this personal vendetta against Joe & SBYNEWS that is only setting him back in order that he accomplish something meaningful in his life. If he continues on this destructive & meaningless path all the way to his grave, he will never have accomplished anything significant or meaningful in his life.

He IS a nobody. The only people who associate with him do so anonymously. Look at him. Standing in fromt of a trash pile. He looks like a human Oscar the Grouch. Have you ever talked to him? Think about this for a minute. Anytime you talk to someone you can tell within the first 30 seconds whether or not your dealing with someone intellectually on the same level as you. They may strike you as someone who is intelligent or someone who is stupid. When you talk to Jonathan Taylor, within the first 30 seconds you can tell that his processor speed is not nearly as fast as yours. In computer terms most people are working with a version of the pentium. But Jonathan Taylor is working with an old 386. Hell, sometimes he seems to be working with a 286 with the old monochrome screen. He has no influence on anyone. Who does he think will follow his lead? Other 286’s? I mean birds of a feather, right? What an idiot.

The letter is PUBLIC INFORMATION.

Plain and simple. Taylor is threatening to file, (once again) an ethics violation charge, Idiot.

How many of these e-mails did you publish for Tilghman and Dunn from Debbie Campbell, Jonathan.

You can’t have it both ways. Oh, that’s right, your Jonathan Taylor and everyone should be scared to death of you. I think not.

Quit sending in anonymous comments and man up for once Jonathan. You have been made a fool with your very own words/threats.

Folks, I get hundreds of threatening messages from this guy on a regular basis telling me I’m going to jail, I’m being reported for this or that. The guy is a nut case.

As for the Marciarello comment, many believe this to be true. While I personally do not agree with it, if someone else is out there saying it they must know something I don’t.

Many have also stated Jonathan has a deep connection with Joel Todd. Jonathan helped Joel out in his election and bashed Oglesby day in and day out, ANOTHER politician who was elected while Taylor lost with an incumbent. What’s that tell you Folks. ALL politicians should be VERY careful who they tie themselves with because Taylor is a bad luck charm, no question about it.

I’d like to believe Jonathan and Joel’s connection isn’t true either but I too have connections all over the place, so its possible.

No, Taylor isn’t Jewish. He even went after Terry Cohen being a Jew over the Lord’s Prayer flap that Laura Mitchell started. Cohen has always handled that issue with dignity, so he’s a real pig to attack her over her faith.

Yup, he collects money from the government you and I pay for and claims he’s handicapped. Get this, he doesn’t have handicap tags. If he was permanently handicapped he’d have permanent tags. Instead, he has a sticker and parks in spaces and doesn’t display the sticker from the mirror. I have seen him at plenty of events and he’s not in a wheel chair. It’s only when he wants attention. He’s a liar, a fake and his only real handicap is that he’s too fat. His heart is probably the size of a basketball.

anonymous 3:42, Jonathan, I told you, act like a man for once and use your real name.

Nevertheless, if Mike Lewis doesn’tr scare me, why would you think for a second Matt Maciarello would scare me.

Only someone with your mentality would believe someone like myself should be afraid of Matt. I’m not bullying Matt or telling him if he doesn’t so what I tell hime, (like you’ve done with the City and County Council) I’ll expose them and they’ll lo9se the next election.

If “I” have something to say, (just ask Matt) I’m MAN enough to confront him one on one and discuss it. No phony e-mail threats, just man to man discussions. Ask your friend Joel Todd about the last conversation I had with Matt. I felt it was extremely productive. Just because Matt is the States Attorney doesn’t make him a perfect man, just like Mike Lewis. Again Jonathan, notice MY NAME is on this comment and I’m not a pussy like you hiding behind anonymous.

I’m in a PUBLIC forum for ALL to see. Try it some time Jonathan. Own your own words and don’t think for a second people haven’t contacted me telling me you just said that you set me up. ROTFLMAO! Is that ALL you’ve got Jonathan. Now you’re trying to claim the letter is a fake and you were trying to set me up, are you really that stupid? Let’s see Jonathan, it went to the entire County Council, in case you or your mentally challenged viewers hadn’t noticed. No Jonathan, YOU’VE BEEN BLOGGED.

I want to ad to my previous comment, who gives a flying sh!t who sends out information.

You’re trying to bully the Council from not sending anyone anything, (like you did in the past with the City Council) yet in the mean time Louise Smith, Gary Comegys and Shanie Shields and their friends) were sending you material on a regular basis.

This is what I call open government. If YOU or your CROOKED friends weren’t trying to cover up stuff all the time it wouldn’t be an iddue or problem. God forbid the other side send out anything, Jonathan Taylor Says NO! LOL

Get over yourself Jonathan. This is your day of glory, getting all this attention. You have no credibility and you’ve done NOTHING to help the community. In fact, I’ll challenge you to openly tell ALL what you have done to give back. You mock me for rescuing animals. You attack me and out advertisers, you call businesses and LIE to them telling them I did something I didn’t. You send out e-mails calling me a racist on a regular basis. Your just a guy who has no money, no life, no pride and no chance of ever truly becoming your hero Joe Albero. Flat out Jonathan, are you gay? Are you one of those type who’s heart was broken and you just can’t get over the fact you’ll never have me????? I mean, what other reason could it be Jonathan. You’ve followed my Blog 100 times a day for at least 2 years now. You’ve attacked my innocent Wife and Grandson. Are you bitter like Charles Jannace? I mean, you remind me of a man who just can’t have something and you’re pissed off about it. So, come out of the closet Jonnie, are you gay, or what? Tell the world legitimately just what you, John Robinson, Tom McGuire and Charles Jannice are so obsessed over. If it is me, I’m not gay and I have no interest in the bunch of you, LET GO.

As you can see this email was only sent to the 7 members of the County Council nobody else. I see that it has shown up verbatim on sbynews with a rant from the asshole proving my point that one of these members is supplying Joe with all the internal emails and documents to slam residents and voters in the County.

You know JT, this post of Monsters was so predicable. First, Monster can’t resist slamming you, secound the Earl & Charlie show has now wound down, so Spew click count is low, almost non-existent. What better post could the “Monster of Spew” put up for feeble ego-feeding peep sympathy, and it would also serve to start a fresh non-stop “Mr Anonymous Monster” post after post going again, plus his usual Joseph “The Monster” Albero posts that agree with his “Ass-Ed-ness”. Monster loves lying and fanciful story time. But it will all come to a grinding halt, if the truth ends up being that there was no veteranarian, nor a visible on-line bill/receipt showing the $6,000 operation for “In Pain Charlie” with the veterinarians name attached. No Veterinarians name or praise for the business? That’s a strange thank you from Mr. Integrity, huh? Especially after all the unnecessary upheaval that Monster intentionally created for all of those charged with the taking care of, Ocean City, Maryland and its residents. If it should turn out that part of the story wasn’t true, then the full weight of a contrived story, will have to fall squarely on the shoulders of Mr. Monster the “Pretend Investigative Slogger”.

Is Free Speech Under Attack, or Just Unethical Bloggers?

A federal judge in Oregon has ruled that a Montana woman sued for defamation was not a journalist when she posted online that an Oregon lawyer acted criminally during a bankruptcy case, a decision with implications for bloggers around the country.

Crystal L. Cox, a blogger from Eureka, Mont., was sued for defamation by attorney Kevin Padrick when she posted online that he was a thug and a thief during the handling of bankruptcy proceedings by him and Obsidian Finance Group LLC.

U.S. District Judge Marco Hernandez found last week that as a blogger, Cox was not a journalist and cannot claim the protections afforded to mainstream reporters and news outlets.

Although media experts said Wednesday that the ruling would have little effect on the definition of journalism, it casts a shadow on those who work in nontraditional media since it highlights the lack of case law that could protect them and the fact that current state shield laws for journalists are not covering recent developments in online media.

“My advice to bloggers operating in the state of Oregon is lobby to get your shield law improved so bloggers are covered,” said Lucy Dalglish, executive director of The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. “But do not expect the shield law to provide you a defense in a libel case where you want to rely on an anonymous source for that information.”

The judge ruled that Cox was not protected by Oregon’s shield law from having to produce sources, saying even though Cox defines herself as media, she was not affiliated with any mainstream outlet. He added that the shield law does not apply to civil actions for defamation.

Hernandez said Cox was not a journalist because she offered no professional qualifications as a journalist or legitimate news outlet. She had no journalism education, credentials or affiliation with a recognized news outlet, proof of adhering to journalistic standards such as editing or checking her facts, evidence she produced an independent product or evidence she ever tried to get both sides of the story.

Cox said she considered herself a journalist, producing more than 400 blogs over the past five years, with a proprietary technique to get her postings on the top of search engines where they get the most notice.

“What could be more mainstream than the Internet and the top of the search engine?” she said.

Blogger Joe Albero Continues to Personally Attack other Private Citizens

Regardless of what anyone else says, Jonathan Taylor was targeted by local powers and the Dr. Seuss attorneys went after him to cease and desist immediately.

In typical style, Taylor refuses to tell the truth about these demands and instead is sending in a ton of comments on Salisbury News recommending people go to another Website, (as if we’d allow such comments to go through).

It has been reported that another group of concerned citizens are threatening a lawsuit against Taylor and the state disability group because it has been proven Taylor is more than capable of earning a living and could be taking income without reporting it to that department.

Taylor has a good chance of losing his disability income as well as his subsidized housing.

I happen to know first hand who’s behind this and quite frankly Taylor pissed off the wrong people in the right places. There could even be the possibility of criminal charges and fraud.

One thing is for sure, Taylor’s Site is in fact shut down for good and I can guarantee you he will not re open it again. Things are about to get real interesting in the blogosphere.

Now you know the truth.

Laura Mitchell Statement On Lord’s Prayer Issue

“Our first work session was extensive and productive. I am now the Council representative on the Airport Commission, Tri-County Council, and the Zoo Commission. In addition to the agenda items (tow ordinance and health care consortium agreement), we also touched on what we want to accomplish in our tenure on the Council. One topic that I broached was to discuss replacing The Lord’s Prayer with silent prayer. Although the initial suggestion came from another member (who chose not to bring it up), I have long felt that the recitation of a prayer from a singular religion was exclusionary. Not to mention that the courts have ruled that government meetings should not show such preference to any religion. I am not aware of any formal complaints, but must we wait for such to make a change that the high court has said we should make? Equally as important, shouldn’t we want to be more inclusive in our City governance? I believe so. We are constantly asking our citizens to get involved, share your concerns, come to meetings. If that is what we really want-and I certainly do- than I feel we should do all we can to make everyone feel welcome. I believe that allowing individuals to worship or pray in the manner of their choosing before the meeting is a very sensible way to accomplish that goal. I am not trying to remove religion from our City or even our meetings, I am simply suggesting that we be respectful of the diversity in our community and even on our Council. I hope that you can understand where I am coming from on this but I am happy to talk with you individually about it if you wish.”

Part 2 Of How It All Began

With Barrie Tilghman now his main target he then gets into a war with everyone Barrie Tilghman has hired including Chief Of Police Allan Webster who saw Joe as the pathological Liar he was from the beginning. Joe begins the Chief Jack and Coke line of posts along with the insinuations that Barrie Tilghman is breaking the law with getting illegal work done on her property by City employees, this leads to lawsuits by both of them against Joe.

During this time frame a new thing develops called an “anti-albero blog” several people notibly Karen Wells from the Off The Cuff Blog, Joe Perdue from Salisbury Soapbox and Susan Rainey from A Class Act. These blogs started letting people know about the lies and misinformation that were being spewed on sbynews. These people immediately became targets for Joe as he could not stand the truth getting out as he preferred being the only blog telling people what to think. It wasn’t just an attack on the people but their families, their income and anything else he could attack to bring them down including threats of lawsuits, criminal charges you name it. Most of these blogs shut down because of this which made Joe feel like he could do that to anyone else that dared challenge him.

The really strange event that most people don’t realize is that John Robinson and Joe were good friends during the 2006 beginning of 2007 area until the day that John had Jim Rapp on his radio show and didn’t allow Joe to call in and to act the ass toward him on the air, this made John an enemy for not allowing Joe his public payback of the man he felt was responsible for Jennifer losing her job. From that point forward it was an all out hate fest between the two. That is what it is like to be a friend to Joe, if you don’t do exactly what he thinks you should he will turn on you immediately.

It was also during this period that Joe found his love for the fire department. Remember anyone that was a friend of Barrie Tilghman=enemy in Joes mind. Bill Gordy had parked his car while on official business in a metered spot downtown in early 2007 and when Joe happened by and saw the meter had expired in his sick mind he had a gotcha. He finds out the car belonged to Bill Gordy who also happened to be Gary Comegy’s treasurer for his campaign, well from that point on you know the history, daily Gordy this Gordy that attacks. He also begins attacks against Bill Gordy’s son Jeremy all because of who Bill was friends with and an expired meter.

How Did It All Begin?

Well from many years of being involved in the blogging world and being public enemy number 1 in his book, I have gotten to talk to lots of people who have told me the story of Joe and how he became the monster we all know now.

Any discussion of this must begin at the Salisbury Zoo where it all originated from. Jennifer Albero worked there and had some issues regarding Jim Rapp then Zoo Director. Jennifer ends up losing her court case against the zoo and her job which in turn sets the animal off within Joe. He decides he will document the zoo every inch of it looking for illegal activities to get back at them for dare messing with his wife. This began in 2003 click here for Jennifer’s Issues

His In-laws live next door to of all people Debbie Campbell so he gets to know Debbie very well on the trips to the Goetz household. Debbie of course has issue with many people in the City so a common bond forms. Debbie shares her tales of woe regarding Mike Dunn, Barrie Tilghman, Lynn Cathcart and many more actually too numerous to mention..open a phonebook with Joe. Albero of course likes to be made to feel important so this figures prominently in his defense of Debbie Campbell.

Well in the mean time issues at the zoo intensify so Joe sets up a meeting with Barrie Tilghman regarding them, when Barrie Tilghman doesn’t nod her head and agree to Joes demands she becomes public enemy #2 behind Jim Rapp. Debbie has huge issues with Barrie so she sees an ally in Joe, someone that can go about attacking for her but give her the plausible deniability so she looks innocent of any misdeeds, and Joe has no problem with said arrangement.

He already has a criminal record including battery on Sharon Gravel which he was put on probation for in 1991. In 2003 as stated a temporary peace order was given to Jim Rapp to keep Joe from harassing him, also Mary Seamann. Karen Jones not only filed a temporary peace order but was granted a full one to keep Joe away from her for 6 months. Those listed above are all zoo employees.

While in this war with the zoo other enemies now make his radar. He starts coming to Salisbury City Council meetings to annoy Barrie Tilghman and others such as Mike Dunn and Lynn Cathcart.Why do you ask, well it’s simple in Joes world. Debbie dislikes the victims and in Joes minuscule mind because Barrie Tilghman is on his shit list anyone that is friendly toward her is also an enemy. This includes the Chief Of Police Allan Webster. This is in the same days as Joes famous ” waste of sperm” email to Barrie Tilghman.

Rant on blogger raises eyebrows

News of the conviction of the man who confessed to killing an 11-year-old Salisbury girl found dead on Christmas Day took a back seat when the child’s grandmother publicly criticized a local blogger during a news conference.

Less than an hour after 31-year-old Thomas James Leggs Jr. pleaded guilty in the kidnapping, sexual abuse and brutal murder of the young child, the victim’s maternal grandmother stood at a podium outside the Cecil County Circuit Courthouse and thanked law enforcement officers, the State’s Attorney’s Office and the thousands of volunteers who search for the child who was abducted from her home Dec. 23, 2009.
“In my opinion”

Roberta Wechsler’s statement at Tuesday’s news conference took an unexpected turn when she openly scolded blogger Joseph “Joe” Albero for additional “crimes and assaults” against the deceased child and her family as well as the “exploitation of her murder” for personal gain.

“In my opinion, there is still a sociopathic criminal loose in our community,” Wechsler said. “He is the leader of a small cult of other sociopathic lemmings. From the moment of Sarah’s kidnapping, in my opinion, he has exploited her murder and her memory and tortured and pillaged my family. In my opinion, he is as much a criminal as Thomas Leggs.”

Wechsler also criticized Foxwell’s paternal aunt, Tracey Powell, whom Wechsler said assisted Albero in using the child’s murder as a means for wealth and fame.

The blogger said Thursday that he has abandoned plans to write about Foxwell’s kidnapping and murder.

The Leggs legacy: From Monoblogue

As most of my local readers know – unless they’ve just crawled out from under a rock seconds before they read this piece – Thomas Leggs confessed to killing Sarah Foxwell in 2009 as part of a plea deal which spared him the death penalty.

The reaction to this development seems to be one of bitter disbelief, but I’m going to look at this from a political standpoint. We have to fast forward to 2014, when both Wicomico County State’s Attorney Matt Maciarello and Sheriff Mike Lewis will presumably once again face the voters. If that comes to pass, Maciarello would be seeking a second term and Lewis a third.

Obviously the key question is: how long will voters’ memories be? Ramming through a series of tax increases in the first year of his term didn’t seem to hurt Martin O’Malley in 2010 as he defeated Bob Ehrlich for the second straight time and by a wider margin. But local elections are a little different.

We also have to assume that the Democratic Party won’t be in the historically bad straits they were in 2010. As it so happens, several of their existing longtime officeholders may decide not to seek another term so it’s worth believing that they will fill out ballot spaces three years hence – it’s doubtful Mike Lewis will get a free ride for sheriff next time, for example. Maciarello is already vulnerable, with some observers believing he got a great gift in the campaign with Davis Ruark losing a bitter primary fight on the Democratic side. (If Ruark were to try again, he would have to re-establish his registration as a Democrat; I believe he’s switched to unaffiliated since the election.) And surely there are a number of ambitious Democrat lawyers for what would be an open nomination process without Ruark.

Moreover, while Matt laid out his reasoning for taking the plea deal, many who demanded more will feel sold out. Certainly it will be an issue resurrected in 2014 by the Democratic candidate, whoever he or she is. Trust me.

On the other hand, Mike Lewis could be blamed if later digging reveals a weak evidence chain. However, the fallout shouldn’t be as severe for him as it will be for Maciarello – that will bring a sigh of relief to the local GOP brass.

Foxwell’s grandmother chastises blogger Joe Albero

The grandmother of Sarah Foxwell publicly ridiculed and chastised a local blogger who she said exploited the memory of her granddaughter who was murdered.

Roberta Wexler made the comments during a news conference that followed a Cecil County Circuit Court plea hearing for Thomas James Leggs Jr., 31, on Tuesday.

Leggs pleaded guilty to murder, sex offense, kidnapping and burglary charges as part of an agreement with prosecutors to withdraw the state’s intent to seek the death penalty.

Leggs was taken into police custody Dec. 23, 2009, after Sarah Foxwell, 11, was reported missing by family members. Two days later, thousands of volunteers from around the region reported to Arthur W. Perdue Stadium to assist law enforcement in the search for the child on Christmas Day. The community later mourned when law enforcement officers announced that the child’s badly burned remains had been located in a wooded area in Delmar later that afternoon.

On Tuesday, Leggs, a registered sex offender in Maryland and Delaware, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole on murder and sex offense charges. He was also ordered to serve a consecutive sentence of 30 years on the kidnapping charge and 20 years on the burglary charge.

After the hearing, Wexler accused Joe Albero of attempting to profit from the death of her granddaughter.

“In my opinion, he has used Sarah’s name to line his pockets,” she said.

She alleged the blogger intended to write a book about the child’s murder. She also accused him of falsely stating that he paid for Foxwell’s funeral.

Wexler told reporters her family has been victimized by “Joe Albero and his cult” of followers and she plans to “seek justice.”

Delmar resident and blogger attacks Muir Boda and others with so-called questions…

Joseph Albero said…

Muir, I have a few questions to ask you.

1. Where are YOU going to come up with the funding to properly support the Police Department?

2. You’re in management and employted with WalMart. This is a company in which has DESTROYED the small businesses you claim YOU want to see come here to Salisbury. You seem to point fingers at the Council. While one finger may be pointed at them, three more are pointing at you/WalMart.

3. Be a man and give us names. WHICH Council Members, “an assault on property rights which is fueled by name calling, personal vendettas and an outright refusal of elected officials willing to address the issues that this city faces. Leadership and responsibility have been sucked up into the black hole of gridlock, making our government ineffective on major issues.”

Muir, it has been VERY clear over the years that you are tied with the hateful Jonathan Taylor and have even been a contributor to his hateful Blog. Therefore you have participated in hatred towards numerous women and personal attacks against them, including my Wife. Jonathan called my Grandson a bastard child, my Wife a whore and has even stated she masterbates with shower heads. You know there’s a lot worse, I’m just not going to publish it here. Jonathan is your close friend and quite frankly he’s a scumbag who will do anything to be Joe Albero, including growing facial hair.

So please, do tell everyone why they should pass their vote to you. You have been close with Barrie Tilghman, Chief Webster, Mike Dunn, Gary Comegys, Louise Smith and others.

If you want to run for office, (like you did the last time) you will face these challenges and we expect answers.

it’s easy to write things with “sound bites” and feel good words but quite frankly I go by a man’s past and the people he hangs with. You may be out of the gate early but quite frankly you’ll probably lose once again because NO ONE wants to go back to the way things were and or have been.

In fact, many will probably say you’re the next louise Smith.

I’ll await your reply.

It is easy to sit behind a computer and attack those trying to take our country back.

Wal-Mart has helped thousands of small businesses stay in business and keep their prices in check.

Lastly, just who is Joe Albero to question Muir on these issue’s, especially since J.A. does not reside in Maryland or the Salisbury City Limits?
