A revisit of two stories from PA. Barbara Tipton Long and Hidden Valley Condos.

I would like to take the readers back because some might not have seen this issue and it’s new to them. Others this will be review. I have covered two stories up in PA. The First story I covered was of a mother seeking justice for what had happened to her child and family. The second is what has happened for over 15 years at a condo duplex and what is not being done about it. The links to the back stories are coming up in the email I sent Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley. This has been an ongoing thing. I have sent numerous requests to politicians, to news agencies and everywhere I can think of. I’ll include more links later in the article to others I have contacted.
Here’s an email I sent to Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley, after my question was taken down from his site. I have contacted a lot of people over these matters and almost every time the response is the same. Either silence, or no comment. The only official that has even taken an interest in what is going on is Andy Ostrowski. (Who is running for Congress.)
“These two problems need to be looked into. Please take 5 minutes and look at the photos and the videos then decide.
Barbara Tipton Long: A mother wanting Justice for her son.
Hidden Valley Condos
These people would like some answers as to why their problems are blatantly being ignored. Hidden Valley has been going on now for over 14 years. Barbara Long’s problem have brought problems with her sons health as well as her own. Since my post was removed from your page I can only assume you or your staff are aware and looking into the problem, or is it just being ignored as usual. “
I encourage everyone to go read these links to these above stories.
There are times when everyone likes to know, that what they have done, has in some way helped even a little bit. I have written about these two events over this past year. Seemingly at times just wondering what more could I do? Is what I’m doing even enough? Am I even doing anything? But everything I do helps in some ways doesn’t it. Maybe not today or even tomorrow but it does help. Some things it takes time and the right people to make it work. My articles are there to show what is happening; what these people, who are afflicted with this problem have gone through. For some moments, as I write about these stories, I get to be these people going through this problem. I feel their frustrations, their fears and pain. I give most of these people their voice through my words.
Some, I am their only voice they cry out and my words are then theirs. It drains and consumes me at times. And I can’t get free. So on I fight for them. I have helped a lot of people with my words, for words hold power. Actions hold even greater power. And we need action on, not only these two stories that I have covered, for these are only the tip of the iceberg, there are thousands of stories such as these all over this country. I have gone through similar problems myself with selfish slime lords who try to cheat and do everything they can to get by with the least amount of money out of their pocket. And backed up and helped by the city who is even more corrupt then them.
I have lived all this stuff before and have been there and fought that war.. And if I can help just one person in their fight, get some help then it’s worth it. People in society have forgotten that what befalls one of us happens to all of us. We have forgotten about the suffering of our fellow humankind.
“The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”
― John F. Kennedy
Okay the first story I covered was of Barbara Tipton Long a mother looking for justice for what was done to her family and herself. She has done a wonderful job of recording and taking photos. She goes to the council meetings and makes sure they hear her even if they try to ignore her. I admire her and her fight. I wish there was more I could do for her. There’s not to much going on with her story. It’s stuck in the cesspit, it’s been in, forgotten. Actually that sums up both stories right there.. Well my works done.. Bye….
No it’s not that easy.. Barbara and I have been talking and she has kept me informed as to what has been happening. She has been busy filming rallies, events and meetings. We’ll discuss this in a later article. For now go to her new channel on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1A7sepFrwAWSRZinHuTIbw/videos
The second story there has been some happenings in the cesspit slime mold cracking. I have been waiting to see what was going to come of what was happening and it looks like it was just a small tremor. Just some paint and some dirt to look like something was being done. They look like they were painting up the sidewalks and locating services. They have also filled in a sink hole that was said to not be there.
Some of the markings and color code meanings.
They have been out locating what appears to be utilities and marking problem areas on the sidewalk. Some of the colors are listed above and in the graphic. Someone needs to find out who did the markings and the locating and get a work permit seeing who ordered the survey. There has to be someone who knows something. There is never a perfect crime that no one knows anything. Doesn’t happen because humans are a curious lot, we love to brag about what we have done.
All this activity begs the question. Who is responsible for this cesspool of a place? See two of my comments below on the place. My voice has become these peoples voice for them to voice their concerns and to try and get answers. Here is some of the activity that has happened in the past few weeks.
Before photo’s of the sink hole that couldn’t be found:
Now the sink hole will not be found. And they’ll say it was taken care of or that it never existed.
Now let me touch on some of what this action has brought to light or actually brought back to light in this situation. First where are the permits to do all this stuff? Who gave the permission to do the markups and to fill in the sink hole? If no sink hole existed why was it covered up? Whose in charge at Hidden Valley Condos, and why is it there is never a paper trail for the things that go on there?
This building should be condemned and destroyed as a health risk to the planet. The foundation if you want to call it that is cracked and in places not there. Cracks big enough to put your hand in at places and water getting in through where the foundation used to be. There is mold so thick in the building that it gags you when you walk in at places. I wouldn’t visit this place without a respirator and a BIO-HAZMAT suit on. Hell EBOLA wouldn’t want to live there. It’s that bad.
Here are two comments I made at the time when I found out what was going on the first was:
“Sounds like they might be just covering stuff up to say there’s not a problem. Keep eyes on things watch carefully. Keep them honest. This could just be a cover up their doing. Hopefully some good will come of it but since I don’t trust anyone in the Hidden Valley Condo scam keep extra vigilant.. They have looked like they were doing things before and it was just a cover up.. Keep em on their toes…”
And then I said a little later:
“This looks like they were just locating stuff at the moment and filling in holes. I mean a whole wall fell off the outside of the building and all they did was patch it up.. I’ve learned not to get to excited till they are actually fixing the problem, then wait till it’s done and done right to celebrate.. It’s going to take a black hole to fix this place not some spray paint.. but having said that they are doing something so we will see what happens..”
I have been informed that a good journalist never let’s his emotions get the better of him.. Damn, good thing I never went to journalism school. Some of the most influential writers I know pour their very essence into every word, every syllable. That’s what makes them worth reading. I do feel for these people who are forced to live under these conditions. While the rest of life passes by without even stopping to look. People are yelling the roof is on fire and little to no people even care to stop and see if maybe they could help.
Now let’s see what lead to this problem in the first place.
One of the biggest problems that I see is first and foremost the HOA, or actually lack thereof. Who do you turn to when the HOA is corrupt and the COURTS and borough are as well? You turn to the 4th and 5th branch of power in this country that people forget. The PRESS and WE THE PEOPLE. Put these issues out in the public eye and hold them accountable in the court of public opinion. As reporters we must at times put forth ideas that are neither popular nor wanting to be made public. Why can’t we talk about why this has gone on for 15 years or so at Hidden Valley and no one wants to say anything.. I AM, I WANT TO KNOW. I want answers for these people. I want to know why Barbara’s story isn’t as sensational as the kid who pulled a prank on a statue up in the same area and it got worldwide coverage. But human waste being pumped into a stream killing the wildlife and being a hazard to humans and animals is a “SO WHAT”. What the hell is wrong with you people anymore.
Neither Barbara nor The Hidden Valley Advocates have had their day in court. WHY? WHY WILL NO ONE LISTEN TO THIS ONE LONE VOICE YELLING WITH ALL THE FORCE OF THE VOICES OF THOSE TRYING TO BE HEARD. Silence is becoming loud and it will break and be heard, it must. A balance needs to be achieved. And speaking of balance let’s look at the law for a minute.
The law of equivalent exchange is this:
Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return.
To obtain, something of equal value must be lost.
Equal to the First Law of Thermodynamics:
The amount of heat put in must equal the amount of energy put out or
For every pound of energy put in a pound of energy is put out.
And Newtons Third law of motion:
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
These are the LAWS and there is a balance, where the hell is it in my life..
I put too much in and get little to almost nothing back.
These are the LAW, So where is the opposite reaction to what is allowed to happen? Why is there no one to stand up in the Judicial branch of our so called government and say hey this isn’t right. Maybe because they’re all gutless cowards hiding behind paychecks and getting greedy? Maybe because they’re all in on the corruption.
Now someone must know what is going on here, because all this work they seem to be doing has to have someone pulling the work orders and giving the people the go ahead to do whatever they are doing. Also the COURTS SHOULD know who and what as well. Why is something that should be public record so hard to find? The more questions I ask about Hidden Valley the more questions I come up with. The problem being NO ONE has any answers. Every answer leads to more questions. HOW deep is the HOA and the courts in this mire? The answer to that question is way past their necks in it.
I feel from all my research that the HOA and the presiding government “OFFICIALS” and I will use that term loosely here, are the cause of these peoples 15 year struggle to get nothing done. There has been at least 1 death directly attached to this condo scam since the beginning possibly more. Numerous people have asked questions, gotten no answers and ran away. I’m still here now asking questions. I won’t go away till I get something. NOTHING doesn’t do it for me. There are answers even if no one wants those answers to be known.
Something that came to me the other night when I was at the illegal check point here in Richmond was this. Who are we going to call to arrest the police for breaking the law? Who do we call to arrest the judges breaking the law and in control of the priests of the temple of law? Who do we call? Are we going to call the police to arrest themselves? I’d like to see that. Would be nice. Same thing with these HOA‘s. There should be someone who has oversight over them that you can go to. Someone impartial and controlling these out of control entities.
What are HOA’s supposed to do for you.
And what chance do you have against them.
Seems that with the advent of the HOA’s we have invented yet another form of governing body that is above the law. In some instances the HOA’s are more powerful then the government. Am I the only one who sees a problem there?
Some stories of HOA’s and what is going on with them.
One of the first things I asked when we were looking at the house we got was, “Were there any covenants, HOA‘s or restrictions on the property?” The Realtor looked at me funny. I was a surveyor. I even know where 3 of the four property pipes are on my property. The one looks like it was taken out. But that doesn’t have much to do with this story.
HOA’s seem to be more trouble then they are worth. They might have started out the same way others things do with good intentions and good ideas but like everything they have become corrupt and no longer serve the people they were set up to represent. All you seem to hear about now is how bad they are and how much power they have. The people allowed that to happen just like our out of control government. Neither now serve the people, both are overbearing breaches of power.
Much like always happens people give a little bit of authority to a small group that over time takes more and more power to control the very lives of the people who only wanted a little help with things in the first place. Then the people complain and always ask the same questions, “HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?” The same way it always does because of your laziness. Because you didn’t want to take a few of your precious moments and fix the problem when it was just starting because it was too much bother.. NOW it’s a big problem and you say “WHAT CAN WE DO IT’S TOO BIG OF A PROBLEM”. You can do something about it, start taking back the power you gave these entities and stand up, that’s the first thing. Stop relying on other people to stand up for you. WE THE PEOPLE are the ultimate power not the government or the HOA‘s. All power derives from WE THE PEOPLE, WE give these organizations their power and WE can take that power back at any time WE so choose.
When people start remembering that then things will start getting fixed in this country. Too often I hear the problem is too big. Why did you let it get so big? Why didn’t anyone stand up when it was first starting and stop it. Because we rely too much on others and what others will think if we stood up. I am different in that I don’t care what others think of me. I will do what I say and what I feel is right to turn the situation around. Doesn’t mean I’m always right but I always act. I don’t sit and wait till the problem is a giant and then cower in fear of it. I take steps to stop it from getting so big in the first place. Even when everyone is against me doing something. At least I try to do something and am active, not sitting on the sidelines and huddling in a group wondering what power I have or who will help me. Help begins with yourself, if your afraid to stand on your own most will not stand up for you. ONLY YOU CAN SET YOU FREE. A line from the song by Living Colour called Cult Of Personality. You most times have to depend on yourself for no one else will do it for you. Even if your the only one standing that is the precise time you need to stand up the most.
Another place I posted something about this issue.
I had posted back in June for people to go try to “up vote” my question to see if we could get it heard. My post was:
“Go to this page and like my comment in the comment section so maybe they will answer some of our questions, if nothing else it should bring some exposure to this situation.
http://www.pennlive.com/opinion/2014/06/send_us_your_questions_for_att.html Look for my name.”
I had posted this on their webpage.
Send us your questions for Attorney General Kathleen Kane
“Why are there two properties that I have written articles on which I will attach below that are unfit to be lived in and are allowed to still collect peoples money and keep them living in hellish conditions. The one property has be derelict and mold infested for over 14 years. These people demand answers and all they get is the run around from their government. I would personally like to know why there is no help for these people. The other property is just as bad and a mother and her son have been forced out without even any answers. Please look into this.” Followed by links to the stories. This was in June of this year. Who is the right person to put this before? I keep putting this stuff out there and get no response. I ask everyone I can think of if they can help. Few take any interest. To this day I have not heard one thing from anyone.
I do know one reason for all these problems and people don’t really like me talking about it. But when what is happening is the truth, not wanting to hear it doesn’t matter at that point. Maybe it is what is needed to be heard at this moment.
“The main reason why nothing is being done to the property is AGENDA 21. They are turning all 1st world countries into 3rd world countries to bring about their New World Order. Trying to bankrupt and bring down the middle class and bring in this new world where only the very rich can live comfortably while us peasants live in squalor and suffer and eventually die off so only the elite are left. They have been poisoning the water supplies and destroying huge tracks of land in an effort to eventually turn it over to China. The EPA is no longer effective neither is the US Government as they have all been bought out or taken over. Unfortunately from what I’ve been hearing this is not the only property this is happening too. It’s not even the only one in the state. It’s now the normal state of the US. The question now becomes what are we the people going to do about it. One way to get their attention is a group of about 20-30 people every week go and protest out in front of their offices.. You don’t have to go inside just be in front of their building. Keep doing it every week at different times. Soon the local owned and bought media will show up. Paper the community with my articles and others that you have, make it a big deal. Mention it to everyone you meet. Get organized and do what I do get in their faces. Get them on camera ignoring you, document the hell out of it.. Post it more on YouTube. Keep the pressure on them. My problem they took from me, they pretty much just throw me out if the hellhole I was in no compensation, no nothing, then forgot about me. Which was their way of helping me and my family. And I fought tooth and nail against them the whole way. And I will do it again and again. I’m still on the warpath against them every way I can. Just like this new fight I’m in against MONSANTO running the March Against Monsanto here in Richmond,VA. it’s all AGENDA 21. They poison the food, the air, the water, the ground, everything necessary to live. Continue your fight I’m there supporting you guys from the front lines here in Richmond, where I can get to them. I so wish I lived closer so I could be more effective for you guys.. BUT YES go make a big noise in front of their offices, if they refuse to come to you go to them. HELL I march right into city hall with my camera rolling and the same for any other GOVERNMENT building. They control you only as much as you let them.
As for what needs to be done to the building itself as I said before it needs to disappear from the planet and it can take the GMO’s and MONSANTO and the GOVERNMENT with it.. I wish I could open a black-hole that would swallow all their crap and make it right again. I can’t do that, I can keep reporting it and fighting it. So you all must too. You are all doing a great job in your fight and I salute each of you for standing up. Now is the time to turn up the heat, as I said get a group that will show up each time and go get them. Too often people will say their behind a effort and no one shows up because their too afraid or they’re just keyboard warriors. It’s great to support something as long as you don’t have to put any effort into it other then typing. I have my share of those here in Richmond. Or they get into a clique and that’s where they stay pretending to do stuff that amount to them patting themselves on the back for a job they didn’t do.” June 1 at 10:46pm. http://hiddenvalleyhiddentruths.webs.com/?fb_comment_id=fbc_335528629919294_385668848238605_385668848238605
In closing I would like to say
“These people should be compensated for what they have been put through, They need to be bought out each one of them and then this place removed from memory. Unfortunately I know all too well they will be screwed over and put through hell and will not get what they are owed. If I could find a way to get them what they are owed and get rid of this blight from the earth I would do it myself. But being as I’m just this little guy with a big mouth I can only do so much. And since I’m 200 or so miles away from them ALL I can do is yell real loud..lol.. It’s a pity there are still places like this in this day and age, but Like I posted above that is now the way they want things to go. And it will get worse. That is the unfortunate truth. I admire everyone who is standing up and trying to make a difference, DO NOT STOP. We need everyone now more then ever.”
I’ll end it here. I’ll be following up on these two stories later when more happens. This is just a brief look at the problems I encourage you to go back and re-read or even read for the first time what has been going on up in PA. Seems to be a lot of nonsense going on up there. I would ask if it’s something in the water but Barbara Tipton Long has already shown what’s in the water up there so..
As always Stay Tuned.
