Rev. Pinkney Arrested AGAIN, supporters: Lynn Stewart, Voice Of Detroit, EXPOSED,

What's really happening to the people of Benton Harbor:
The thrust [of the Berrien county courthouse] is to physically remove and destroy families through the use
of the criminal justice system. Every person they can put in jail; every person whose voting rights they can
revoke with a felony conviction; every person they can cause to lose their job by putting them on probation;
every person they can cause to lose the ability to pay for basic necessities through imposing ruinous court
costs and probation is all part of the process. In the 1960s, it was called Negro removal. In Bosnia, it was
called ethnic cleansing. It could be called genocide, the removal of the minority population for the purpose
of redevelopment of the land. That’s what’s happening in Benton Harbor and the foremost leader
of the resistance is Rev. Edward Pinkney. --Civil rights attorney, Hugh "Buck" Davis

Sharon Tyler is Deep in Mud

Democracy means people have the right to choose their elected leaders, including through the recall process.

That was the message when Benton Harbor City Commissioner Marcus Muhammad and 
his supporters held an August 18 press conference in front of the Berrien County Courthouse.    

They spoke out against Berrien County Clerk Sharon Tyler's decision to appeal a recent 
court ruling that put the recall of Benton Harbor Mayor James Hightower on the Nov. 4, 
2014 ballot.

"It's not about a candidate or a candidacy," Muhammad said shortly before the press conference.  "It's about democracy and the people's right to choose, because their voice is their choice." 

City voters will choose between the Whirlpool puppet Hightower and Commissioner Muhammad for mayor, if Tyler's appeal is unsuccessful. Tyler is appealing the decision on 
an emergency basis to the Michigan Court of Appeals. Tyler hired two of the largest Law firms in the country, Miller Canfield and Paddock and Dykema, Gossett PLLC with money from the citizens of Berrien County.  

She also requested $20,000.00 from the citizens Berrien County. 

Puppet mayor James Hightower's term ends Dec.31, 2014. Commissioner Trenton Bowen
stated, "The mayor said he was ready in May and Commissioner  Muhammad is ready, so I do not see what the hold up is.  Let the people vote."

The initial recall election scheduled for May 6 was cancelled at the request of the clerk and Whirlpool Corporation.  The puppet mayor was losing the election by a landslide, according to inside information on absentee ballot results. The clerk then filed a lawsuit against herself to stop the election.

After a one day trial, Judge John Dewane ordered that the recall election be put on the Nov. 4 ballot.  He said the county clerk's practice of throwing out both signatures, if a person signed a petition twice, violated the First Amendment.  The judge was on point.

Former Benton Harbor Mayor Wilce Cooke said Tyler initially approved the petitions so a recall election could be held. Then she questioned her own decision and so we have another mess in Berrien County.

Tyler gave the original petitions to the sheriff's dept. without a warrant, subpoena, or judge's order.  She contaminated the investigation and may have altered the dates on the petitions. Her hands are deep in mud and she's not to be trusted. 

Clerk Tyler is being recalled:

-- for filing a lawsuit against herself to stop the recall election on May 6, 2014.

-- for allowing the sheriff to remove the original recall petitions from her office without a warrant, subpoena, or judge's order.

-- for requesting $20,000.00 dollars of Berrien County citizens to appeal Judge DeWane's decision to place the recall election on the Nov. 4, 2014 ballot.

Sharon Tyler is a former State Representative in the 78th District.  She must go.  Join me in recalling Sharon Tyler.  She is another official controlled by the Whirlpool corporation.

Hearing in Lansing September 4

Press Release

Contact Rev. Edward Pinkney
269-925-0001


Clarity Hearing Sept. 4, 10am
State Capitol Bldg. Rm. 426
Lansing, MI

The hearing is for approval of petition language for the recall of Berrien County Clerk, Sharon Tyler because of her actions described below.

First, Benton Harbor residents carried out a successful petition drive to recall their mayor, James Hightower.  County clerk Sharon Tyler illegally gave the signed petitions to sheriff deputy David Zizkovsky.  Deputies then went to Benton Harbor residents' homes and intimidated some into signing statements that they didn't know what they were signing.  And, Pinkney was accused by
county prosecutor Michael Sepic of changing petition dates.  (During a hearing, atty. John Anthony LaPietra told the court that the clerk, elections administrator, and prosecutor all had "dirty hands.")

More happened after that, but let's skip to the point of this email:

Volunteers from all over the county will be collecting signatures to recall Tyler for:

1.  Allowing the Berrien County sheriff's department to remove the mayoral recall petitions from her office without a warrant, subpoena, or judge's order.

2.  Filing a lawsuit against herself to stop the mayoral recall election.

3.  Requesting $20,000.00 from the residents of Berrien County to file an appeal of Judge John DeWane's decision to place the mayoral recall on the Nov. 4 ballot.

So far, residents from the following towns will join the petition drive:  Berrien Springs, Coloma, Stevensville, St. Joe, Buchanan, New Buffalo, Niles, Benton Harbor, and Benton Township.

You may not see Whirlpool up front in these activities, but there isn't a person in Berrien County who doesn't know that "the corporation" controls every single thing from behind the curtain.
