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 […]

7th Says NO to Shady Schait and EDZO

Entry Img

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 […]

IAFF Releases “Confidential” Report, Sort Of

Entry Img

Must Come to Headquarters to View It IAFF General President Harold Schaitberger and GST the “Edzo” Kelly are releasing the hitherto super secret “Final Report to the General President of the International Association of Fire Fighters Regarding Safeguards over Proprietary Documents.” That’s a long and fancy name for the $300,000+ term paper prepared by Shady-Schait’s private […]

IAFF: Kelly Fox and Stalog 1750

Entry Img

Escape From IAFF Foiled IAFF Vice-President and soon to be Cal-PERS pension guru Kelly Fox apparently thought escaping 1750 New York Ave. would be as simple as cutting the barbed-wire and then an easy jog to freedom. Nien! Like it or not (probably not) he has now been dragged into the Schady-Schait / “Edzo” orchestrated […]

IAFF: “Edzo”, “The Rat” and DOL

Entry Img

America’s Dumbest Video Am I the only person who has noticed that “Edzo” is just two short letters from Bozo? Bozo was, until the appearance of “Edzo”, our most famous clown. Bozo, like Edzo, made films, his best being Bozo’s Big Top. But Edzo’s latest film is no clowning matter. In it he trashes the […]

IAFF: Edzo Does His “Charlie McCarthy”

Entry Img

A Fool and His Microphone IAFF General Secretary-Treasurer Ed “Edzo” Kelly was in the 7th district this week making a fool of himself while simultaneously embarrassing our union as he campaigned in the district vice president race there. In a reprise of the famous ventriloquist Ed Bergen and his side-kick Charlie McCarthy, Kelly was Shady […]
