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.

http://j8n.879.myftpupload.com/2015/09/21/osha-is-attempting-to-cover-up-united-airlines-criminal-behavior/

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.

http://j8n.879.myftpupload.com/2021/03/16/fake-news-daily-herald-chose-to-protect-united-airlines-over-its-own-readers/

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.

http://j8n.879.myftpupload.com/2017/04/12/united-airlines-also-illegally-dumped-asbestos-next-to-childrens-playground/

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://j8n.879.myftpupload.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

Mr. Oscar Munoz

United Airlines' position that A&E Services Inc. was not removing asbestos from United's former WHQ in Illinois not only illustrates the unbelievable arrogance of management at United.

It also confirms that the culture endorsed and implemented by the top brass at United is one of: When caught doing something wrong, lie to the bitter end.

That way of dealing with this very serious situation, if continued, will not serve you or United's shareholders well in the days to come.

For your viewing pleasure I have attached a video recording (just a sample) of A&E Services illegally dry scraping friable spray-on-fireproof asbestos from the ceiling at United's former World Headquarters (OPC)

Now would be a good time for someone at United Airlines to say something intelligent.

Oscar Munoz, you have admitted that stuffing a puppy into an overhead bin to die was wrong.

Now perhaps you can also muster up the decency to admit that United got it wrong when it decided to deliberately expose people to a known carcinogen.

Oscar, I realize that this will be a very difficult thing for you to do considering that the decision to purposely expose people to asbestos was not only wrong, it is also against the law!

But whether or not you do the right thing and voluntarily accept responsibility, United will be held accountable for its actions.

United CEO Oscar Munoz and President Scott Kirby

You may think that United Airlines' proclivity to kill their customers' dogs and bunny rabbits is shocking behavior.

But that's not the worst of it. United employees/whistleblowers are now speaking out about United knowingly exposing its own people to deadly amounts of airborne asbestos at United's former World Headquarters.

United Airlines unveils laughable “Safe to Say It” campaign

Marty Watters, Investigative Reporter

Just three days after United Airlines lead counsel Brett Hart was confronted about threats that he allegedly delivered to whistleblowing employees at United's former World Headquarters (WHQ), Hart had the unmitigated gall to announce the laughable "Safe to Say It at United" campaign.

United Airlines manager to employees: “it would be difficult to prove” United was removing asbestos

Hart reportedly delivered the threats to an attorney representing the employees who were blowing the whistle on criminal asbestos removal at United's former WHQ.

It is clearly not "Safe to Say it at United" because speaking up could result in a threat and that does not make anyone feel safe.

A message from Brett Hart: It’s safe to say it at United

By Brett Hart
Posted February 12, 2018

Dear United team,

As a company, we've always aimed to have a culture in which employees can share their ideas, questions and concerns with us. And we're now renewing our commitment to reinforcing that culture. As Oscar and I mentioned at our Earnings "Live" event at the end of January, we're introducing a "Safe to Say It" campaign to reaffirm with all of you that you are empowered to speak up. We want you to always feel comfortable voicing your thoughts, especially if you think something isn't right.

Tools like Runway, Org Pulse and United Voices are examples of ways that we've already made it easier, on a tactical level, to share different types of feedback. These tools have allowed us to more reliably gather and act on employee feedback, so you know that, as a company, we're listening. We'll continue to look for new ways to streamline those processes, but now we want to go beyond that and focus on making sure that all employees truly feel that they can share their thoughts without fear.

We've started by asking all leaders to make sure that their employees know it's safe to speak their minds. Each leader holds in his or her hands the power to build employees' trust. And we want all of our employees to trust that their feedback and ideas are valued.

Our promises to you

As leaders, we will take ownership

We promise to work hard to continue building a culture where thoughts and ideas are exchanged freely. And if you find that we're not doing that, we want you to hold us accountable.

Our doors are open

This phrase is used a lot, and sometimes superficially, but it needs to ring true here at United. We as leaders promise you that we will give you the time, space and permission to speak up.

There are no repercussions

If any employee has questions or concerns about a project, a policy, or anything else going on at United, they should feel empowered to say so. And as long as it's done in a way that's respectful and appropriate, that will never bring on negative repercussions.

What's next?

The Ethics and Compliance Office and various other teams across the company will contribute to the "Safe to Say It" campaign, highlighting the importance that speaking up holds in their areas. And you'll hear more in the coming months about all the ways that you can speak up and why it's important to do so.

Questions?

If you have questions or comments about the "Safe to Say It" campaign, please email the HR Communication team at hr.communication@united.com.

Best regards,
Brett

-----------------------------------------

Mr. Hart, after the multiple threats I myself have also received from United, I don't feel "Safe to Say It" to United - and I'm not even an employee!

United employees will be better served by the Brett Hart-inspired "Say it Anyways" campaign.
