Aldercreature Asshole

So up north, aldercreature John Arena is bound and determined to become the new Helen Shiller, importing Section 8 and an "affordable" housing project right across the street from 016.

This is November "tweet" from someone who is representing a rather broad swath of the northwest side:


So if you were one of the nearly one-third of 45th Ward residents who voted for Trump, this is what Arena thinks of you - knuckle-dragging, subhuman, racist.

Not a doubt in our mind he'll be throwing those terms around at the big meeting tonight.

UPDATE: From the comments:
  • His people threatened to get city workers fired for speaking out against this project and he told another constituent to move if they disagree with this new building.
UPDATE: Supposedly, Arena is having ID's checked to see if you live in the ward. Plus, he's busing in all sorts of supporters, many of whom don't live in his ward, to crowd out residents. The buses arrive at 1730 hours for an 1800 meeting.

Hey, asshole! I may be a knuckle dragger, but at least I know "Cead" is not the word you meant to use. It's barely a word at all. Next time, instead of using a thesaurus to help you with your insults, try a dictionary to help you with your words. This one's on the house - "cede" is the word you wanted. You may want to check on the definition of "progress," as well. And switch to lead free paint chips for your afternoon snack.

He might want to look up the spelling of "cede". Hint: it's not "cead".

It's hard for me to take anyone's criticism of another's intellect seriously when they lack basic writing skills.

Even the most leftists of liberals feels pain in the pocketbook. Even knuckle draggers know exactly what this will mean to property values and by extension,retirement dreams. Good luck touring the former Soviet block nations, for inspiration, when you lost money on your biggest investment.

This shit comes straight from Obama's HUD.
Destroy stable neighborhoods and communities

Knuckle-dragging?

Arena doesn't even know how to spell "cede".

Someone should run against him.

Better yet, he should just volunteer to be one of the 30 rubber-stamping Aldermen to "cede" his position in order to shrink city government and save the knuckle-dragging taxpayers some money.

The city as well as CPS needs to consolidate and cut spending. Arena is a perfect example of bloated, unnecessary government. Cut him and his staff - you will never know the difference as far as the level of service.

Arena is a supporter of Northside Democracy For America whose goal is the "increasing PROGRESSIVE overarching nature of government ." In other words a social progressive political organization that endorses people like Kim Foxx, Tammy Duckworth, Chuy Garcia, Howard Dean and others. The developers of this proposed site is Full Circle Communities 310 S. Peoria. They have a website, just google that name. Arena is offering you residents of the 45th. a way to beat that bag tax that the City Council enacted. It's the offical "Chi-Bag" emblazoned with the City seal and of course dear leader's (Mayor Rahm Emanuel) name on it. You must bring identification to prove you are a resident of the diverse and inclusive 45th ward. Only 100 are available so act now!

Arena is elevating the term AlderCreature to a new level of loathsome behavior. Hey goofus, if you want to see the effect of Section 8 housing, just take a short ride to Skokie. While Sevtion 8 can assist deserving senior citizens - it can also be a Trojan horse for gang members and other riff raff. It took a new ordinance demanding landlord accountability to force the criminal element to find their "opportunities" in other suburbs. Pro active policing also encouraged these lowlifes to expedite their departure. Since those strategies can't be employed in Rahmulus land, you will hopefully be voted out of office by an informed electorate before you can harm your ward.

I hope the progressives who voted for him get ripped off first when his housing project comes to fruition. I live in the ward, but far enough that I should still be able to sell my property without much issue. Knew he was a jag off the first time I saw him.

Voted for Trump too. I do hope Arena is enjoying his Trump presidency. My pension is secure, so I'm getting out of dodge before ground is broken on this clusterfuck.

All the progressives that voted for him can enjoy their new neighbors and bike lanes with their hero Slumlord Johnny. All these Wicker Park transplants care about are bike lanes and walking to coffee shops. Their probably too stupid to own and operate a coffee maker.

I feel sorry for my conservative minded neighbors who are closer to ground zero, especially city workers who are getting bullied into silence.

Of course his comments are vile and untrue, but I have come to expect nothing but hatred from leftists. The writer in me, however, is compelled to point out that Arena spelled 'cede' wrong. So not only does this clown not understand that he has alienated a significant portion of the voters in his neighborhood, he has also completely undermined his argument by showing the world that he has no grasp of the English language.

Oh, and I used to live in 016. Still have family there. Lots of cops and firemen live in 016-- probably that third of the area who voted for Trump. And I seriously doubt they are going to want to see Section 8 housing in their part of town.

I say let the "knuckle-draggers" have at him. And may the "knuckle-draggers" never forget how their elected "leaders" have treated them. Hatred, insults and bad spelling deserve nothing less than our full contempt.

Helen Schiller destroyed her Ward with Section 8 housing in an effort to retain her constituency as the area attempted to gentrify. Every effort to develop Uptown must face the reality of discarded condoms, hypo needles and empty bottles of booze, being scattered about the ground adjacent to any new development. Then The Commie Bitch responsible for this comes back to Chicago with her attorney son, to form some kind of Development Company! As an Alderbeast she was responsible for destroying her Ward; and now she wants to profit from it.

Well well well, John Arena is about to fuck the 45th ward and the 41st Ward a s a matter of fact. Let's see it was about five or six years ago when the 45th ward had an excellent candidate for alderman very pro police, as a matter of fact he is the police. John Garrido. As one of many police officers that assisted Garrido in his campaign I find John to be very intelligent. He was promoted off the list never meritoriously, finished law school and passed the bar exam on his first try. Pretty impressive if you ask me. John also makes it his business to be well versed on the general orders and is very in knowledgeable regarding the law. John is very pro police and many times over the years has played a major role in supporting police that have either gotten hurt or in trouble on the job.

When John discovered there was a real opportunity to run and win the 45th ward Alderman's seat which was when Pat Levar stepped down , John took it upon himself to run for alderman. He commited himself to the election. He used all his furloughs, personal days, comp time and his own money in an attempt to successfully win the election. I forget the actual number and I'm sure someone will correct me but John lost his first Aldermanic campaign by I believe "27" votes. Practically a tie. As if losing the campaign wasn't bad enough the real kicker here was the fact that many 45th Ward police officers didn't come out and vote for John. Many said they supported him but didn't vote. Then of course you had some haters. Police officers that were so jealous that John would be able to retire pull his police pension which he earned and collect an alderman'a salary so they wouldn't vote for John. Hundreds of police officers in the 45th ward that didn't vote for John.
So let me ask you rocket scientists who were too busy or too stupid to vote for John Garrido, don't you think that may have actually been a good idea to have an intelligent police officer fighting Rahm and all his bs let alone doing what we know is right for the neighborhood like not purring a 100 plus unit section 8 building in the middle of the 016th District. Unbelievable. You can blame the politicians you can blame FOP, you can blame CCSA's office or the ACLU but in reality we let this happen to ourselves. Pathetic and I can't wait to leave this job. We our own worst enemy. You got one more election in you Johnny???

Obviously you failed the civics lesson that was just taught to the democrats in the last election. Just because we work with savages does not mean we want to live among savages. Our communities are our safe zones, just like those established on campuses across the country where we raise our families who respect the police and the laws they enforce. The violence by these savages in the lawless communities across the city were created by you and your kind Mr Arena. How you ask. Here's how you simple minded a**hole. When you hand people their future by giving them everything they need to survive from cradle to grave, you have stripped them of any ability to attain dignity and self worth as a human being. What started out as a program that was disguised and sold as charity has evolved into the biggest pay to play scam ever perpetrated against the American people. Kind of brilliant where the democrats can use taxpayer money to shower their voting base with entitlements. Problem is that same voting base is mad and frustrated as hell but they don't know why. Well Mr Arena you and your kind have stripped them of their self worth that limits their chances of achieving the American dream so if Trump voters are knuckle dragging deplorable animals it would stand to reason that you the zookeeper may want to keep these animals in a different cage than the knuckle draggers.

WOW

I voted for Trump for 2 reasons:

#1 bring back manufacturing, and
#2 bring back manufacturing


I realize Trump is a goof personally, but we believe in the same things nonetheless

Bush was a goof, too, but mostly because of his big government policy regarding prescriptions, and he was ambushed by the neocons into going to war in Iraq

But Arena is going to attack me for not voting for Hillary? Really?

Fuck Arena, I voted for Garrido anyway

Ok, hate Rahm and this Aldercreature. Against us being a "sanctuary city." Voted for Trump; but he is really scaring me. Not only because his moves so far are anything but anti-big-business and pro free market (if you pay attention he has already screwed the regular guy, us, a couple of times), but now he says this shit. "'So many of the problems are caused by gang members, many of whom are not even legally in our country,'” Trump told a group of police chiefs Wednesday in Washington. http://www.nbcchicago.com/blogs/ward-room/trump-blames-chicago-violence-undocumented-gang-members-413191773.html

On the other hand maybe he's right. maybe the reason the clearance rate is so low is because illegal immigrants are coming to the city, driving around on the south and west sides and killing people.

Its amazing how quickly rezoning for a residential project was complete but a tree trimming , repaired pot hole or burnt out street lights seems to take forever .

Full Circle Community Apartments are low-rise Cabrinis. In fact Full Circle is 501-C "charity".
Somewhere buried in the land sale deal at 5100 N Northwest Hwy is an Alderman Arena benefactor.
Many Cook County lots were sold for $1. Where was Full Circle?
If this project is allowed to through in that portion of 016, the decline will follow.
Why not build factories and promote jobs? Welfare must be easier for AlderAsshole Arean to dole out.

Charity housing brings single mothers and their fatherless unsupervised kids that grow up already accustomed to the experience of drug dealing and violence to protect an operation.
Crime will rise there. Crime will spread.
Being close to a police facility will have no effect on crime or drugs.
If I remember, I think 010 Dist station (or is it 009?) has gangs and drug corners within proximity that are out of control.
Arena is spreading the Englewood-Lawndale experience to 016.
Residents should be warned.

This is a Rahm deal also. Full Circle has many other location, plus there are many more lots available elsewhere for housing.
AssholeMan Arean is a jagbag traitor to the Ward and kiss ass Rahm Democrat.

excellent candidate for alderman very pro police, as a matter of fact he is the police. John Garrido. As one of many police officers that assisted Garrido in his campaign I find John to be very intelligent. He was promoted off the list never meritoriously, finished law school and passed the bar exam on his first try. Pretty impressive if you ask me. John also makes it his business to be well versed on the general orders and is very in knowledgeable regarding the law. John is very pro police and many times over the years has played a major role in supporting police that have either gotten hurt or in trouble on the job.

When John discovered there was a real opportunity to run and win the 45th ward Alderman's seat which was when Pat Levar stepped down , John took it upon himself to run for alderman. He commited himself to the election. He used all his furloughs, personal days, comp time and his own money in an attempt to successfully win the election. I forget the actual number and I'm sure someone will correct me but John lost his first Aldermanic campaign by I believe "27" votes. Practically a tie. As if losing the campaign wasn't bad enough the real kicker here was the fact that many 45th Ward police officers didn't come out and vote for John. Many said they supported him but didn't vote. Then of course you had some haters. Police officers that were so jealous that John would be able to retire pull his police pension which he earned and collect an alderman'a salary so they wouldn't vote for John. Hundreds of police officers in the 45th ward that didn't vote for John.
So let me ask you rocket scientists who were too busy or too stupid to vote for John Garrido, don't you think that may have actually been a good idea to have an intelligent police officer fighting Rahm and all his bs let alone doing what we know is right for the neighborhood like not purring a 100 plus unit section 8 building in the middle of the 016th District. Unbelievable. You can blame the politicians you can blame FOP, you can blame CCSA's office or the ACLU but in reality we let this happen to ourselves. Pathetic and I can't wait to leave this job. We our own worst enemy. You got one more election in you Johnny???



2/09/2017 08:40:00 AM

I wouldn't be that condescending and arrogant if I was you. Afterall, that is what cost 'Johnny' the 3 elections. I could list all the reasons why a lot of coppers don't like him, but we both already know them don't we?

If Garrido wants to run again he might win. I don't live in that ward and could care less. However, it might behoove you and him to tone down the 'I told you so,' rhetoric. He's done a good enough job of making himself look like a pompous company man without you adding to the fire with your moronic posts.

No one was wearing their Trump hats or displaying Trump signs for fear of physical attacks. No one who was supporting Trump talked to pollsters or talked to reporters. The polls all put Hillary way ahead. They were surprised when Trump won, but in looking back it was obvious; people were afraid of the progressive verbal and physical attacks on them for even thinking of voting for Trump. A long time friend for whom I did pro bono work for eight years ( I donated my professional business time to help his legal clinic) called me a racist, fascist A-hole when I told him I voted for Trump. He also told me he stayed up all night crying as the votes were being counted. The legal clinics clients are all black. That is how the progressives really think of you if you do not follow their lead. They believe income redistribution and taking the police out of minority areas. I am now thinking these people really are closet communists and anarchists who cleverly disguise their true feelings until they are in power. Be careful out there. There is no tolerance on the part of the progressive left. No room for debate or discussion.You can see it every day since Trump took office.

If Garrido wants to run again he might win. I don't live in that ward and could care less. However, it might behoove you and him to tone down the 'I told you so,' rhetoric. He's done a good enough job of making himself look like a pompous company man without you adding to the fire with your moronic posts.

So, you don't live in the ward therefore you don't give a shit. Who's the pompus ass now. Alderman of other wards still affect you pal. The more pro police alderman the better. Is Garrido perfect? Of course not. Did he put himself out there, would he have been better then this goof Arena, yeah I think so. You really need to get away from the stupid high school stuff and look at the bigger picture.

To the 45 ward police officers that did not vote for GARRIDO, wtf were you thinking ? Did you do any research, the businesses closing in the area, the $$$ that arena demands from current businesses and developers? The stuck up attitude of arena? Doesn't that tell you something of the person that runs the ward ? These are not new, it's been going on since he has been in office. Maybe when your daughter starts hanging out at the new complex you will figure it out , but I doubt it . Idiots!!!

Within 1 yr of the completion the Walgreens next door will be run out, closely followed by Ellys and The True Value. The Paternos will become a center of dope dealing insides with the inevitable shootings inside and out. Just plain sad and very predictable.

Paternos has been a dive for awhile now. Same with Ham Tree.

I was at the meeting last night. I was very impressed with the attendees. Many had very lucid, and well researched comments, in objection to this "CHA" project. There are actually three projects, on the table. There were even comments from social science folks, that gave many examples that this time of urban development, does not lead to the results, the alderman is pitching. The one thing I went away with; is The Alderman is a Mean Spirited Elitist. He is going to push his progressive, liberal, agenda, down our throats. He really believes he holds the Moral High Ground. He knows whats good for us, and its his divine mission to lead us. Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder.

People need to get in Arena's face loudly, publicly and on video.

"Are you calling me a racist?!?."

"Are you calling me a knuckle dragger?!?"

"Are you calling me sub-human?!?!"

Then chase him out of wherever he is like they did Rostenkowski.

Also like Rostenkowski, he has to have something in his recent past which could get him indicted and convicted. We need to find that and use it.

After I retired, my wife and I met with him and asked if he would look into getting the city council to pass a senior citizen rate on the city water bills as I have a fixed income (and now, no health insurance). He laughed, looked at my wife and said, tell him to go get a job. As we left he asked if we could donate something to his campaign. We moved out of the city shortly after that.

So at approximately 5:45pm (way before the meeting at 7) Alderman Arenas meeting had people bussed in from "low income" areas so the "seats "got filled up . We're talking hundreds...the. The residents of the area were not able to get in..there was like a 1000+ locked out and turned away just standing out in the cold

2/09/2017 07:34:00 PM

I was inside the meeting, got there early about 5:30 pm. Those who supported the project took up two rows at best. The indoor crowd was overwhelmingly against the project. Arena got the proverbial boot in the ass from angry residents and Trump supporters. A female PO, who was the head of the Young GOP, spoke eloquently about the hateful post and her opposition to the project. She reminded me a lot of the First Daughter Ivanka, all class. CPD Lt. John Garrido got two standing ovations when he got up to speak. It was a long night for Arena, he sat on stage looking down at the floor as neighbors pummeled him for his hateful remark about Trump supporters and the project. To one of the posters above, this is the far NW Side, people wearing Trump gear wouldn't be bothered at these events. An attack on one would result in a can of whoop ass from others. That reality causes people to mind their manners.

You are kidding aren't you? The city has had a senior exemption of their water bill for years if not decades. Right now seniors dont have to pay the sewer tax which is about the same as your water bill so in effect you get a 50% savings, not a bad senior discount

Adults take the long view. I don't care if my doctor has no bedside manner, if they're the best doctor for my needs. I don't care if someone who works for me isn't my favorite person; I still give their work a fair, impartial review. And, if I didn't like JG personally, I'd still vote for the person who would most fairly and intelligently represent the area's needs and interests, and I'd put my personal, petty issues aside.

I have a friend of mine who tried to get in to the meeting yesterday and was too late because of capacity. She called the office today and spoke to a Leslie. She has all the details documented, but what was striking to her was 1. Leslie was combative and interrupted her and 2. Leslie said that "this was not a referendum". The way I look at it, it is a done deal. I believe my friend is doing the research on ties with the unions involved, developer(s), shadow companies, etc. I thought the alderman were supposed to take into account what the people they represented wanted v their interests and what they think is important. Have they done a cost analysis on other developments, impact on infrastructure, schools, etc. It will be interesting what is uncovered (after he tries to "hide" it)

While JG is still employed by CPD, he walks a fine line between private citizen resident of that ward and CPD employee, with all its rules and regs. He's doing exactly what he needs to do. Leave it be.

Arena is slamming this & other high density projects through because he has plans to run for another higher office in the Nov 2018 election and he is trying to get a broader city wide vote. Putting low income CHA partnered housing on the NW side would bring him votes from progressive liberals citywide. He has said repeatedly in public meetings in 4 years "when I am no longer Alderman". Those words should of been taken very seriously. He is gearing up now with the help of Preckwinkle. http://45id.org/event/fundraiser-for-alderman-john-arena-2/

I think he's gearing up to take a run at Emanuel for Mayor. He'd have to give up his alderman seat to do so. I'm moving next year, and the project isn't scheduled for completion until 2019. Will be glad to have Prickwinkle and this dick in a suit Arena in my rear view mirror.

John Arena loves to strong arm businesses on Milwaukee in his ward. Whether donations or goods, he is not shy about it. I first met him while he was taking cases of free goods from a local MA and PA store in Portage Park, while his wife and daughter sat in the car.

Since my mom is home, and she doesn't like it when I drink in the basement, I will play with you for a bit. Nowhere in my original post did I say it was a good idea to not vote for Garrido. I simply pointed out how your post wasn't beneficial to him because, quite frankly, you sounded like a snowflake pussy. If you were a part of his campaign, that would help explain his losses. If he doesn't run for office again, then you're opinion is understandable.

Since his law firm is so lucrative, he should have no problem retiring at 50 and putting all his energy and focus into politics. Again, if he does, do yourselves both a favor and don't come on here crying. Do you understand now? If not, reread this post 5 or 6 times. And if you still can't comprehend my writing, look for an 8th grader to help explain and break it down for you.

Meeting highlights: Arena was told by a young veteran that he was a coward and leading from behind; he should put the project in his back yard at Six Corners. A very fired up Trump supporter read his FB quote, posted on SCC's remarks, and another one where he called Trump a pussy. She told Arena that he was a pussy for keeping residents from other wards out of the meeting.

Arena got heckled during the entire meeting. No one in the audience spoke in favor of the project. People were pissed off and let him know it.
