Rolling Meadows Mayor admits to keeping deadly secret from residents!

Marty Watters, Investigative reporter

The mayor of Rolling Meadows, IL, Joe Gallo, has admitted that he is keeping the deadly fact that United Airlines illegally dumped a cancer-causing toxin (asbestos) next to a children's playground in Rolling Meadows from the residents he represents.


Wait, it gets better.


Gallo is contending that he is keeping this dirty little secret in order to protect his constituents from what United Airlines would do to them if he were to tell them the truth!


The best part:


On July 15, 2021 this jackass of a Mayor put that ridiculous excuse in writing!


And then Gallo sat silent when a concerned Rolling Meadows resident, Sara Boucher, confronted him about the nefarious situation at a townhall meeting on August 4, 2021.


Go to -- 12:50 minute mark.



Makes you wonder what else United Airlines is illegally dumping in Rolling Meadows, IL.

Asbestos scandal: Rolling Meadows alderman thinks constituents don’t need to know!

Marty Watters, Investigative reporter


Picture this: Rollling Meadows 5th Ward Alderman Jon Bisesi spent his morning today screaming at the top of his lungs at me that the people he represents don't need to know that United Airlines willfully exposed them to a dangerous cancer-causing toxin.


And why was Bisesi screaming at me? 


Because I kept insisting that his constituents be informed of what Bisesi has already acknowledged did in fact happen: that United Airlines illegally dumped asbestos in his ward next to a children's playground.


Bisesi insisted that now is not the time to tell the residents.


So, Alderman, when is the time?


Why would Jon Bisesi freak out over the prospect of the resident of Rolling Meadows learning these facts?


And why would he scream at the top of his lungs at the reporter who provided him the documented proof and witnesses?


What is Bisesi trying to hide?


What or who is he afraid of?


Could it have anything to do with Bisesi's claim that City Manager Barry Krumstok recently warned him to "let it go"?


These are questions he will have to answer.


So, Alderman Bisesi, pull yourself together, put your big-boy pants on and tell the residents of your ward what United Airlines did to them!


The longer you wait to do so, the harder it will be for you to explain why you waited so long.

“Woke” the United Airlines way

Marty Watters, Investigative reporter

United Airlines just announced a new pilot training program that celebrates choosing pilots for its cockpits based on race and gender rather than talent, ability, education and experience.

Good for you, United, because as any "good" person knows, "wokeness" trumps safety.

And the "good" decision makers at United have always figured out a way to make their brand of "wokeness" work for them.

Take, for example, the savings United realized when it made the "woke" decision to hire an unqualified pressure washer and his crew of Mexican day-laborers to illegally remove cancer-causing asbestos from United's former World Headquarters, and dump it next to a children's playground in suburban Rolling Meadows, IL.

How very "woke" of them to employ those minority day laborers to do their hazardous criminal dirty work.

But both these demonstrations of United's virtue-signaling "wokeness" most likely will result in the death of many of its customers and employees. But apparently that's okay with United's top brass.

However, is the "woke" crowd that United is pandering to these days okay with under-qualified minority pilots dying in the plane crash along with the airlines' customers and employees?

And will they be okay when the Mexican day-laborers die of cancer along with United's customers and employees?

Can they even make those kind of cold-blooded exceptions and still be considered "woke"?

I don't think so.

No, United's decision to put less-qualified pilots in the cockpit and use Mexican day-laborers to illegally remove its asbestos problem is not about being "woke" at all.

Like everything else United does, these are just sleazy ways to obtain cheap labor in order to further line the greedy pockets of United's top brass and their corrupt political allies.

Do us a favor United, go back to sleep.

You're not fooling anyone.

Daily Herald editors think they can hide from the truth!

Marty Watters, Investigative Reporter

Daily Herald editors John Lampinen and Jim Baumann have been called out for their refusal to report on United Airlines' illegal dumping of asbestos in suburban Rolling Meadows, IL.

And their response was to run and hide

Not only are they trying to hide the truth from Daily Herald readers, they now are hiding as well.

But they can't hide from the truth.

Good luck with that strategy, boys

Lampinen and Baumann have yet to even try to dispute the accusations made against the Daily Herald.

There is a good reason for them to run and hide. These Daily Herald editors know that if they poke their heads out and try to dispute what I have written about the United scandal, it would only further expose what truly despicable people they really are.

Case in point: Lampinen and Baumann are currently in possession of a bombshell recording of United Airlines facilities manager Sylvia Empen discussing her own felonious actions in this scandal.

In the recording, Empen not only puts herself into serious legal jeopardy by revealing lies she told to federal agents, she also dragged many others, including corrupt government officials, with her.

This recording is one of the many pieces of evidence provided to Lampinen and Baumann that Herald reporter Chris Placek refered to as a "smoking gun." But his editors won't let him write about.

In fact, the well-documented proof of crimes committed by United Airlines that Lampinen and Baumann already have in their possession is enough to send United muckety-mucks and their corrupt government enablers to prison for a considerable length of time. That is, as soon as the FBI and US. Attorneys Office get off their asses and round these criminals up.

So why is the Daily Herald still hiding the truth?

Simple answer: The Daily Herald is a "fake news" organization that needs permission from their corporate and government overlords to print the truth.

And they certainly are not going to give the Daily Herald the go ahead to publish a story that would cost them tons of money and land some of them in prison.

These people may be immoral and greedy, but they're not stupid.

Or are they?

What happens when "fake news" media outlets like the Daily Herald get caught red-handed covering up the truth about public corruption?

I'll answer that.

The editors of that rag will go down on the same ship as their corrupt overseers.

Bet on it!

Fake News Daily Herald chose to protect United Airlines over its own readers!

Marty Watters, Investigative Reporter

Does the health and well-being of Rolling Meadows residents matter to the Daily Herald? Apparently not!

The Daily Herald, the largest suburban news paper in Illinois, purports to serve its suburban readers, but that is clearly not true when it comes to the residents of Rolling Meadows.

When the decision was made on whether to inform Daily Herald readers in Rolling Meadows that United Airlines was illegally dumping a cancer-causing toxin next to a children's playground, the top brass at the Daily Herald chose to protect the criminals at United Airlines, and their corrupt enablers at the EPA and OSHA.

As far as the Daily Herald editors were concerned, the health and well-being of their readers did not matter!

Ouch!

Now the corporate lackeys at the Daily Herald find themselves scrambling to try and find a way to save face.

Well, I can help them with their predicament. It's really very simple, and it's amazing that they haven't already done so.

Just report the truth!

Your corrupt friends in the government and at United Airlines will not be happy, but they will eventually come to realize that you really had no other good option.

As for your readers, ask for their forgiveness. Who knows they might just forgive you if you do the right thing now.

Keep in mind that your own reporter, Chris Placek, had this to say after seeing a sample of the evidence against United and the corrupt government officials: "There are smoking guns here!" But incredibly you won't let him report that in your newspaper.

Once again, gentlemen do the right thing. Or the Fake News Daily Herald will lose any credibility it may still have left.

More to come…

Mayor of Rolling Meadows: “Daily Herald is covering up public corruption”

Marty Watters, Investigative reporter

Rolling Meadows Mayor Joe Gallo is calling out the Daily Herald for covering up a public corruption scandal involving United Airlines.

For over a year, Gallo has been gathering evidence, talking to eye witnesses and reviewng court documents, and he has concluded that it is an undeniable fact that United Airlines illegally dumped asbestos next to a children's playground in his town.

Gallo then brought his findings to the Daily Herald, knowing that the newspaper's editors were provided the same proof that he had. Then something truly astonishing happened.

The newspaper was not interested in informing the public about this toxic health hazard.

In fact, Herald reporter Chris Placek admitted to the mayor that he knew the asbestos dumping claims were true, but he then proceeded to try to negotiate for the mayor's silence on the matter.

Placek told the mayor that it was not his decision, and that his bosses would not publish an article about United's crimes or expose the public corruption of key government officials who covered them up.

http://illinoispaytoplay.com/2020/12/08/time-to-run-corrupt-congressman-raja-krishnamoorthi-out-of-town/

However, Placek did throw out what he thought would be a good compromise - the Herald would consider publishing a generic article expressing the mayor's concerns about the dangers of asbestos without mentioning what United did in Rolling Meadows.

This was unacceptable to Mayor Gallo and he quickly pointed out to Placek that the Daily Herald was actively covering up public corruption.

Placek did not disagree. And the incredibly bizarre "negotiation" ended there.

By Placek's own admission, the editors at the Herald are complicit in the covering up of corporate crimes and public corruption in Illinois.

Placek's boss, Senior Vice President/Editor John Lampinen, was contacted for comment via phone messages and emails, but he has not replied.

The real question now is: Who is pulling the strings of the editors at the "fake news" Daily Herald?

Rolling Meadows Mayor Joe Gallo battles corruption!

Marty Watters, Investigative reporter

The mayor of Rolling Meadows, Joe Gallo, is single-handedly taking a valiant stance against the corrupt city manager, Barry Krumstok, to expose United Airlines' illegal dumping of cancer-causing asbestos in his city

Here's the background: United Airlines was caught red-handed illegally dumping large amounts of toxic asbestos right next to a children's playground in Rolling Meadows.

City manager Barry Krumstok was made aware of this crime and has been provided proof that it did in fact happen. So he knows that this dangerous violation of the law could have devastating consequences for Rolling Meadows families.

However, since learning of these crimes, Krumstock has done everything he could to conceal these crimes from the people who pay his salary ($175,100).

Now Mayor Gallo is working hard to expose this corruption and to see to it that United is not only held accountable for its criminal behavior, but also provides the necessary relief to the victims of these crimes, the residents of Rolling Meadows.

But corrupt city manager Krumstok is one of the main obstacles in the way of Mayor Gallo getting justice for his constituents.

To this day, this crumb continues to threaten and intimidate anyone attempting to expose United's disgraceful disregard for the health and safety of the people of Rolling Meadows. Even though the evidence provided to him of these crimes is irrefutable and overwhelming.

Mayor Gallo should have no problem rolling right over the corrupt city manager.

Word of advice, Mr. Krumstok: Listen again to that audio recording of United Airlines managers discussing their environmental crimes before that recording goes public.

Then get ready for battle.

Mayor Joe Gallo

My money is on the mayor!

Time to run corrupt Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi out of town!

Marty Watters, Investigative Reporter

There are many reasons that the corrupt congressman of the 8th District of Illinois, Raja Krishnamoorthi, should be tarred and feathered and run out of town.

For me, the number one reason is Krishnamoorthi's cover-up of the United Airlines asbestos scandal.


For years, United Airlines has been willfully exposing its employees and the public to dangerous amounts of deadly airborne asbestos fibers.

And for years, Krishnamoorthi has been doing everything he can to protect United and its top management from criminal prosecution and the enormous civil liabilities that would follow.

Krishnamorthi has been slow walking his so called "investigation" into the illegal removal and dumping of asbestos from United's former World Headquarters in suburban Illinois.

He is doing so by completely ignoring the slam dunk, irrefutable evidence provided to him that proves United is committing these crimes. Evidence that includes, but is not limited to, video and audio recordings, internal United invoices and other documents, lawsuits, material witnesses, and testimony from government officials.

In other words the whole nine yards!

Krishnamoorthi never actually had to do his own investigation because it had already been done and served to him on a silver platter.

All Krishnamoorthi had to do was to make a few phone calls and United Airlines would be held to account for its crimes.

So why is Krishnamoorthi refusing to hold United accountable?

The simple answer is: Because he is a bought and paid-for crooked politician. Who has been promised a bright future if he does what he is told.

Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi caught up in public corruption scandal!

Marty Watters, Investigative reporter

Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi who represents the 8th district of Illinois and is Chairman of the Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy should not be asking questions of witnesses regarding the dangers of asbestos.

He should be hauled in to answer questions himself.

And he might want to have a competent lawyer sitting next to him when that happens.

The line of questioning should start off something like this:

"Congressman Krishnamoorthi, you have been provided irrefutable proof that United Airlines illegally removed asbestos from its former World Headquarters and then illegally dumped it in a suburban neighborhood in your district, exposing countless men, women and children to this dangerous cancer-causing material.

"And for years now, you have been stonewalling and ignoring your constituents, United Airlines employees, material witnesses and the mayor of Rolling Meadows' pleas for help while the people in your district continue to be exposed to this dangerous hazard.

"Mr. Krishnamoorthi, why are you ignoring these very serious crimes being committed by United Airlines?

"Why are you protecting United and not your own constituents?

"Is it because United Airlines' Political Action Committee (PAC) as well as its crooked attorneys at Seyfarth Shaw, donated thousands of dollars to your political war chest?

"Mr. Krishnamoorthi, how long have you known about United's asbestos problem, and fact that the Evironmental Protection Agency (EPA) along with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have been trying to keep United's criminal activities a secret?

"Did you know about United's asbestos cover-up when Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan appointed you Special Assistant Attorney General in charge of the public corruption unit?

"Did you know that United Airlines had this enormous asbestos problem at its World Headquarters before taxpayers subsidized United's moving of its headquarters to the Willis Towers in downtown Chicago?

"And Mr. Krishnamoorthi, can you answer the question that completely stumped United Airlines management when they were asked about the signs that were posted at United's former WHQ informing its employees to avoid breathing airborne asbestos fibers?

https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/barbara-hollingsworth/united-airlines-warned-employees-avoid-breathing-airborne

"How do you avoid breathing airborne asbestos fibers in rooms you've already entered?

"Can you tell us?"

These are just a few questions that Congressman Krishnamoorthi should be forced to answer.

It really shouldn't require a congressional hearing to get answers to these simple question. Perhaps someone in Illinois "fake news media" could just ask the congressman.

Since the media is in possesion of the same evidence, don't hold your breath waiting for that.

But definitely do hold your breath when entering United Airlines buildings!

Senator Dick Durbin looking into United Airlines’ criminal activities

Marty Watters, Investigative Reporter

Senator Dick Durbin's office is currently in discussions, with infividuals including me, who are providing the Senator with irrefutable proof that not only did United Airlines criminally dump asbestos in a Rolling Meadows, IL neigborhood, but that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) where instrumental in covering up the crimes.

Jessica Garber, a legislative aid for Senator Durbin, who is spearheading the inquiry, said that higher-ups in Durbin' s office are trying to determine the best way to proceed.

Senator Durbin, the FBI and the Securities Exchange Commission could be of some help.

Why not call them?
