“The paper that can’t be bought and can’t be sold.”

St. Mark’s in-the-Bowery Church in the East Village neighborhood in Manhattan, is
justifiable known as a center of cultural and political activity. The annual New Year’s Day Poetry Marathon, run by the St. Mark’s-based Poetry Project is always a great show.

I am a member of the church and services there tend to be human rights oriented. There is, however, a neo-fascist skeleton there that is not even in the closet.

The St. Mark’s-based so-called “9/11 Truth” group, led by Assistant Pastor Frank Morarales, has, under a non-elected, self appointed government including slick but oppressive operators like the mega-fascist/convicted felon Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr./“Green”-orient-ed Les Jamieson, become a dysfunctional dictatorship where dissenters, such as myself and “9/11 Truth” regular Mike Filippone, are harassed and threatened. St. Church has, particularly at its Sunday evening “9/11 Truth” meetings, become a sounding board for neo-fascists like the psychopathic terrorism-linked Geoffrey Blank, and LaRouche”intellectuals” like Webster Tarpley. On December 4, 2005, Blank was allowed to speak there, totally falsely claiming to be the president of the No Police State Coalition, a falsehood that Morales and Jamieson were fully aware of. Blank came accompanied by a bunch of his brownshirts such as the troll-like St. Mark’s frequenter known only as “Crazy Carl”, with clubs concealed in their pants, LaRouche-style - for use on me. Jamieson has personally threatened me on two occasions because of my objections to his withholding of the facts on Tarpley from the “9/11 Truth” membership. On November 26, 2006 an apparently Green Party associated thug, as yet unidentified, but well known to Morales, Jamieson and others in the self-appointed “9/11 Truth”government including Tom Foti and Luke Rudkowski, menacingly invited me to “step outside” because I had suggested that there be an elected government. Morales, as he usually does, handled the matter in classically “blame the victim” fashion by coming over to me, physically pushing me a bit, and warning me that I might be thrown out. My requests of Foti and Rudkowski for the name of the LaRouche-style thug who threatened me in front of them were met with what is known in the NYPD as a blue wall of silence. In any case, because of the political nature of the harassment, I have made a formal complaint to NYPD.

Formal complaints have also been submitted to Katharine Jefferts Schori, the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church and to Bishop Thomas Sisk, who heads the New York Diocese. They need to know that there is a LaRouche encampment in their midst.
