Father and Daughter Win Election To Save Their Local Park

Published

on

Retired widower Steve Herbik and his 23-year old daughter Brittany launched an uphill fight to save their suburban Ohio park from a development plan supported by a Democrat-led city council, a Democratic mayor from a prominent local political family, a major construction company, and the local press.

Herbik lives in Brooklyn, Ohio, a stone’s throw from Cleveland city limits. He describes Brooklyn as a “small community” with a prized local venue called Memorial Park, which features bucks, turkey, and other wildlife. But the park was threatened by an initiative called Issue 3, which would have allowed the Geis family’s Geis Construction company to build over the park.

“I was told by a neighbor who came over and said, they’re putting something on the ballot. They want to tear up our park,” Herbik told Big League Politics. “They gave me a little zoning change ordinance in the mail.”

“I went to City Hall, got the ordinance…I started realizing that there were a lot of things in that ordinance. They could take away 92 percent of the park, put in offices and condominiums, and basically pave over the whole park,” Herbik said. “I went to all the city presentations, where they’re putting drawings and plans for what the park could be. Every artist rendering was different. It was a complete snow job and I decided I wasn’t going to let that happen.” Herbik said the estimated cost range for the project was $240 million and that the city would have had to take out “tens of millions in loans just to get the project started.”

So who joined his effort to save the park? Herbik said: “It was just me and my daughter.”

“I was off on a crusade for the truth, going to planning and steering meetings. Then I had city council meetings. They were all trying to get me to slow down and be quiet,” Herbik said, noting that he “took a lot of abuse.”

“The economic director insulted me half a dozen times in public meetings,” he said, adding that the local press was “one-sided toward the mayor,” Democrat Katie Gallagher.

“In the last eight days we did 33 miles of door-to-door knocking. The vast majority of the people we talked to had no idea about it, and we saved the park.”

Herbik drove around to all the precincts Tuesday night and reported the results exclusively to Big League Politics: 634 votes in favor of the development plan, and 1,152 votes against.

Herbik said Mayor Gallagher Facebook-posted her disappointment that the city lost $10,000 on planning the development, and also deleted a Facebook comment pre-emptively slamming Herbik for accusing her of paying off election officials.

Cleveland Tea Party co-founder Ralph King was involved in the effort to save the park, and said that the victory inspired him more than anything he’s recently seen in politics.

“I’ve been completely engrossed in this,” King told Big League Politics on election night. “They [Herbik and friends] spent probably about three hundred dollars and it’s looking like we won.”

“This is where my heart has been at since the beginning of the tea party. It goes on right here in your own backyards, when we’re watching the frontdoors,” King said, noting that America First policies have to be pushed for by citizens at the local level, and not by political interests.

“If you can’t put 20 people in a council room there’s no way in Hell you could organize a congressional race,” King said.

EMAIL LEAK: Nashville Dem Mayor’s Office Colludes to Hide Data Indicating Restaurants and Bars Were Not COVID-19 Hotspots

Leaked emails have shown the Dems are deceiving on COVID-19.

Published

Democrat leaders of Nashville, Tenn. have been exposed for colluding to hide data showing that bars and restaurants were not major transmission points of COVID-19 despite the fake news hype.

Some of the top advisors of Nashville Mayor John Cooper have been indicated in a plot to hide information that might alleviate some of the mass hysteria related to COVID-19, which has crippled small businesses including bars and restaurants.

While Democrats have looked the other way with regards to mass protests featuring violent communists and anti-white thugs, they have incessantly demonized restaurant owners and bar owners throughout the pandemic. The contents of this email leak suggest that Democrats are targeting restaurants and bars to punish the American people and hurt the economy to hurt President Trump’s re-election chances.

The controversy stems from findings by the state’s contact tracing team. They determined on June 30 that nursing homes and construction were major hot spots for the spread of COVID-19, with each category logging over a thousand cases of the virus. However, bars and restaurants accounted for only 22 cases. The Mayor’s officials schemed to keep this information away from the public.

“This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?” asked Leslie Waller of the health department.

“Correct, not for public consumption,” senior advisor Benjamin Eagles added.

This created the de facto policy of keeping the information under wraps by the Mayor’s office. The health department refused to confirm the numbers when they were asked about them during the summer by the press.

Tennessee Lookout reporter Nate Rau asked: “The figure you gave of ‘more than 80’ does lead to a natural question: If there have been over 20,000 positive cases of COVID-19 in Davidson and only 80 or so are traced to restaurants and bars, doesn’t that mean restaurants and bars aren’t a very big problem?”

Health department official Brian Todd said to five health department officials: “Please advise how you recommend I respond.”

The whistleblower, whose name was redacted from emails, reportedly responded at the time: “My two cents. We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site. We could still release the total though, and then a response to the over 80 could be because that number is increasing all the time and we don’t want to say a specific number.”

Nashville Councilman Steve Glover is up in arms about the Democrat officials plotting to keep the people scared and in the dark regarding COVID-19 numbers.

“We raised taxes 34 percent and put hundreds literally thousands of people out of work that are now worried about losing their homes, their apartments…and we did it on bogus data. That should be illegal,” Glover said to FOX 17 News about the Democrats omitting this crucial information from the public.

This is not the only instance of the COVID-19 numbers being fudged to keep the panic alive with the beleaguered public. There has been constant subterfuge from globalists to convince the public that the lockdown is necessary.

Big League Politics has reported on the staggering overstatement of COVID-19 case numbers by reporting facilities in Florida:

The Florida Department of Health is scrambling after fraud was discovered in how COVID-19 testing rates were being reported across the state.

After the health department released a report showing a stunning statewide positivity rate of 11 percent, analysis of the numbers revealed severe irregularities. Many labs reported 100 percent positivity, meaning that every test came back positive.

In addition to the labs reporting 100 percent positivity, there were other testing facilities that reported abnormal levels of positive tests. FOX 35 found that Centra Care reported that 83 people who submitted tests were all counted as positive. The Orlando Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center reported a 76 percent positivity rate, NCF Diagnostics reported tests at a 88 percent positivity rate, and Orlando Health reported a 98 percent positivity rate.

Orlando Health has admitted that the results from the health department’s report are dubious. They said that their positivity rate was only 9.4 percent, not 98 percent as it was shown in the report. This casts major doubt regarding the accuracy of the total cases that have been reported in Florida.

The fake news has used Florida as an example to bolster their COVID-19 mass hysteria due to all of the supposed cases that were popping up throughout the state.

There have been reports of COVID-19 case numbers being faked in Texas as well:

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced last week that the number of new COVID-19 cases was erroneous, with an artificially high number of cases, due to system upgrades and coding errors with their reporting system.

Abbott explained that the Texas Department of State Health Services brought in a data team to review the suspect numbers. The positivity rates reached a stunning 24.5 percent last Wednesday, which caused the media alarmists to create more hysteria among the beleaguered masses.

DSHS press officer Lara Anton said that this happened because of a computer update that occurred on Aug. 1, resulting in positives being uploaded into the system multiple times. Coding errors were also discovered in one hospital lab and another commercial lab that resulted in additional positives being counted to the total.

Dallas County Director of Health and Human Services Dr. Phillip Huang made excuses for the glaring errors which are being used to shutter certain businesses throughout Texas.

“We are still dealing with paper faxes of lab data and lab reports – hundreds of those a day that we’re having to deal with,” Huang said.

“The systems have not really been designed to handle this many numbers,” he added. “It’s an unprecedented situation we’re dealing with.”

While the so-called experts would like to make it appear as if this some kind of honest mistake, irregularities in the reporting have steadily occurred throughout the country.

Democrats have engineered this scamdemic and cannot give up on the lie because they would be held accountable for the needless damage they have caused to the American people for political purposes.
