IAFF: Bobby Shelton Weighs In

Entry Img

He is an IAFF Instructor “Many years ago the GP got up in front of a number of instructors and stated plainly that the diversity of the IAFF instructor pool lacked diversity and did not reflect our membership. At the time there were 4 [African-American] IAFF instructors and no women. In mid 2000 3 women […]

Spies: Of Harvey and Harold

Entry Img

Birds of a Feather Disgraced entertainment guru and alleged serial sexual assaulter Harvey Weinstein is being outed again, this time over the revelation that he hired spies/private dicks in an effort to shut down unfavorable press about him in the New York Times and the New Yorker. According to the New Yorker, “One of the […]

Miami: Where’s the IAFF?

Entry Img

Harold and Edzo, Missing in Action The disaster in Miami has become a worldwide news story; google “firefighter/noose” and see what you get. Or just go to CNN, AP or any other news outlet and there it is. Speaking of disasters, both Harold and Edzo love a good tragedy, especially if it offers an opportunity […]

Leadership: Miami Vice

Entry Img

Symbolism 101 Six Miami firefighters, including two officers, have been fired and more may follow after they were charged with participating in, or consenting to acts, described as racist and sexual in nature. Reports say that a noose was left over the defaced family photos of a black officer. The photos had erect penises drawn […]

Kelly, Trump & Schaitberger

Entry Img

Boss as Bully Narcissist The Kelly in the headline is White House chief of staff John Kelly, not the IAFF’s Kelly, a clarification that is essential because the difference could not be greater. John Kelly is a tough and disciplined gentleman, a decorated senior Marine officer with a very long record of service. You can […]

Our Man, Joe Blow, and the Race in the 7th

Entry Img

Joe Blow writes in so often (we like that even though we have no idea who he really is) that he needs an image so I googled Joe Blow and here is what I got. Joe loves Trump but appears not to be a fan of Shady Schait which could put me in a moral […]

Walsh Wins by 20 Points In a closely watched race to replace retiring IAFF vice-president Kelly Fox, Ricky Walsh, former DVP, defeated Ryan Mudie in a run-off election where IAFF principal officers Harold Schaitberger and Ed “EDZO” Kelly pulled out all the stops in their drive to defeat Walsh. They made calls, held meetings and […]

Jerry Lewis, My Brush With Fame

Entry Img

When I was still working at the IAFF, and during my last convention, in 2008, my job was to “bird-dog” the schedule and keep things running smoothly. The meeting began at about 9AM and was mostly a series of speakers and work on IAFF business, usually attended by about 1,500-2,000 union officers. Jerry Lewis, the […]

IAFF: When the Secret Report Fizzles

Entry Img

So Much For That Idea In a move increasingly seen as bizarre, Shady Schait and EDZO decided to release a heretofore super secret report purportedly showing leaks at the IAFF. The confidential report, prepared by private detectives under the control of Schaitberger, cost members $350,000. The reason for the release was to try and influence […]

IAFF: Mr. Joe Blow on the Not-So Secret Report

Entry Img

Mr. Joe Blow, Trump Lover and occasional contributor, gives his view on the Shady-Schait / “Edzo” decision to suddenly open up their “confidential” report for all to see, but no note taking or photos, please. “Maybe someone will go in wearing one of those old Google glasses! This way they can copy everything and post […]
