The Hard Reality and a Difficult Truth

The Hard Reality and a Difficult Truth

Tuesday, August 21, 2012
I always do my best to provide informative Andromeda Council news reports or updates that are insightful, exact, concise & detailed. This is the first one that has its own dedicated web page. I believe the below information will be highly valuable to you because it directly relates to the current clean-up process of what Earth people many times mistakenly believe to be the human ‘bad guys’ of ‘Cabal’ / ‘Illuminati power structure. Why did I say “mistakenly believe” in reference to these beings? Because a great many of them are not human. The hard reality and a difficult truth is… they are in fact… Reptilian. So please, read on.
The final clean-up of the Reptilian controlled & operated – ‘Cabal’ / ‘Illuminati’.
As of recently, today, and into the foreseeable future until the job is finished, I want you to know there are coordinated teams of very sensitive, highly trained & highly efficient people, off planet people, 3D extraterrestrials and 4D & 5D interdimensionals, from aligned benevolent, ‘the good guys’, star systems of the Andromeda Council including: Antares, Procyon, Tau Ceti, Vega, and others, that are quietly working together to take out and remove as fast as possible –all remaining Reptilians, especially those fake, imposter, &/or cloned hybrid human looking, human appearing Reptilians –that operate, direct & control all levels of the ‘Cabal’ & ‘Illuminati’, including the upper level leadership, that have been and are today controlling so many aspects of our global society… as I describe in the lower section of this paper called, “The complete infiltration, infestation, corruption & control of our global society”.

Why are benevolent extraterrestrial & interdimensional people able to step in and help remove Reptilians, this pervasive, hostile menace to Earth humans? There are many reasons. These are the same reasons that it was right for the people of Procyon to take out & destroy the various Draco & Hydra Reptilian underground & undersea bases.
First of all, Reptilians, though they erroneously believe it to be true, they are not the “… rightful masters of this planet & this universe.” They do not own us. We are not supposed to be their slaves, we are not supposed to be their chattel; and we are not cattle, even though they treat us as such. We are a sentient, thinking intelligent species… with a heart, soul & spiritual essence at our core. We are great beings of light. This is who we are. And Earth is our planet.
Further, the best reason that what people correctly believe to be a Universal Law, a “Prime Directive”, that governs the extent to which a more advanced extraterrestrial &/or interdimensional race cannot directly intervene in the affairs of the people of a developing world… it does not apply to this situation on Earth, because many years ago Reptilians came to this planet, were inappropriately worshiped as “gods”, and changed the course of our natural development. They still dominate and control us today. And yet, this is not their planet.
One of the worst parts of this experience for us is that it’s so pervasive, and so subversive, 99% of the time we don’t even know who these controllers are that operate in the ‘dark’ creating more & more negative circumstances, scenarios and laws to restrict and control our lives, which continue to severely reduce our inherent sovereign freedoms… down to nothing. This is absolutely wrong. And it must stop.

Well, they are not “gods”. They are life forms that simply happen to vibrate at a higher dimensional frequency, though it is the lower end of the 4th dimension or density. This is not their planet. And they certainly do not have our best interests at heart.

These evil Reptilians, by their own choosing, have had their way with the people of Earth, treating Earth humans as a slave race & natural resource, long enough. And enough is enough. It is time they leave our planet for good –

so that we humans of Earth can reestablish our inherent sovereignty as global citizens, develop new systems of living & thriving that are truly good for us, utilize clean new technologies that already exist, so that we can eliminate poverty & famine; and so that we can prepare and more easily experience the transition & transformation of this planet… into becoming a higher dimensional world.

Again, their time has come. The clean-up of these Reptilians continues to happen, right now, with the writing of this article. And it will continue until their negative control and influence is removed from this planet.

We of Earth, the true global sovereign citizens of this planet, have a right to exist on our world… as free sovereign people. Not to be enslaved by a race of beings who would use us as economic slaves, & consume us as a natural resource. No longer. This is our planet. It is time for them to go. And go they shall.

In closing.
I recently received the below comment from a young man in Hungary. He said to me and I want to share it with you,

“… I want change, I want a liberated world, I want truth. There is no price I wouldn’t give. Even the highest of price. With
all my love and respect to every nation, and every family member outside of Earth, thank you.”

Wodakote, “peace”, from the planet Dakote as a special member of the Andromeda Council. Wodakote to all humans of Earth.

It is our time to live free, sovereign and in peace.

note: for those people who are new, or novices, to the overall topic of “Reptilians”, who they are, how they got into top positions of power & leadership on planet Earth, you may very well want to read the below:


Background information, the Reptilian side of the ‘Cabal’ / ‘Illuminati’ power structure.
For those of you following & paying attention to all of the Draco & Hydra Reptilian underground & undersea bases around planet Earth that have been taken out &/or destroyed by members of the Andromeda Council, resulting in the removal of tens of thousands of Reptilians, soldiers and workers of various types, from their underground facilities & undersea bases, from the planet Earth, including the late March 2012 taking, clearing out & clean-up of the final Reptilian undersea base whereby 2,000+ of the highest ranking Reptilian ‘Cabal’ / ‘Illuminati officials & their military officers, including many of whom we would consider to be their generals;

these Reptilian beings were removed by the people of the Procyon star system of the Andromeda Council, and sent to the primary Andromeda Council biosphere for trial in a War Crimes Tribunal for their crimes against humanity. The actions of the Procyon people in doing this resulted in, to the greatest degree, the ‘cutting off of the head of the snake’, the ‘directorate’, the bosses & masters if you will of the total overall Reptilian ‘Cabal’ / ‘Illuminati power structure. Yes, Reptilian controlled power structure… over the people of Earth.

To learn the details of some of the bases the Andromeda Council has taken out, you can find these news reports on the “Archived Interviews” page of the Andromeda Council web site: www.andromedacouncil.com/ArchivedInterviews-WrittenTranscripts.html .

What should also be especially insightful is the report titled: “Reptilian Agenda – Milky Way Galaxy Catastrophe, Year 2370” which details the overall goal of these specific malevolent Reptilian races, which also includes those from Orion & Sirius B, to completely take over all human inhabited planets in the Milky Way galaxy, not only Earth, but all human inhabited planets – and to ‘Reptilianize’ these planets.


The complete infiltration, infestation, corruption & control of our global society.
It may, or may not, come as a surprise to you that there is complete infiltration & infestation, and therefore total control & corruption at the top tier of Earth’s global society, citizenry & institutions, directing & controlling everything below, at the top tiers of governments, military & intelligence, industries & business, especially: oil {gasoline & all petroleum derived fuel products}, energy/electricity/power, gold, ‘money’ {continuous creation of debt – fiat currency based on fractional reserve banking, capital markets, central banks… all aspects of banking, the various trading markets, etc.}, water, transportation, defense [contractors], news, entertainment {movies, television, video games} healthcare, pharmaceuticals, crop & food production… and the list goes on;

Whereby certain leaders at the highest levels of all of these areas of our global society, of all of these institutions – people who look or appear to be human, are not. Again, they are in fact – Reptilian


[note: The above material in this specific section is only meant to be a summary. David Icke has done a great job for years covering the exhaustive many details, and layers of details, of exactly who, what, where & how the infiltration, infestation & control of our global society of these Reptilian beings has happened. You may want to read some of his books.]


How this all started… how Reptilians came into power.
At minimum, thousands of years ago, these Draco, Hydra, Orion and Sirius B Reptilians initially came to Earth and were worshipped as “gods”. They took control at the highest levels of human society, initiated and developed many institutions… to control & enslave Earth humans. There are many visual examples and records of these past Reptilians influencing many cultures, one of which is the Maya. Further, Reptilians control & enslave Earth humans today, at your continued peril and suffering, in virtually every aspect of your lives.

The Draco & Hydra Reptilians that have been on Earth have lived predominantly in underground & undersea bases. The Orion & Sirius B Reptilians, these are ones that Earth people are likely to have briefly seen, and mistaken as humans, but with whom most people have only had limited daily interaction. And yet they are pervasive in all aspects of our society.


What is a Reptilian?
Now, please understand, in their natural state, these Reptilians are lower vibrational, 4th dimensional beings. They are of spirit, of fine essence matter, as compared to being organic with skin, muscles, tendons, blood & bones like Earth humans. Like any other higher vibratory dimensional life form, these Reptilians have natural abilities that allow them to be able to form and manifest, to create – a physical 3D organic body. So therefore understand, their mental, their psychic power is extraordinary, off the charts, based on what people of Earth would understand at this time.

But something happens to these Reptilians that people call “shape shifting”. If by chance you happen to watch a seemingly human person who is “shape shifting”, changing form in front of your eyes, from human to a Reptilian and back to a human again, when this happens what you are seeing is the following:

a 4th dimensional natural Reptilian, manifesting/creating a 3D physical Reptilian body, which is using its 4th dimensional abilities… to project a human holographic image… over its 3rd dimensional manifested physical Reptilian body. It is a holographic projection. It takes energy on the part of a Reptilian to hold this human projected form. With regard to “shape shifting”, what you are watching is its momentary drop in energy.

And, worse yet, when a 4th dimensional Reptilian steps down their vibration to manifest a 3rd dimensional organic body – their natural, original 3D form from millennia ago begins to manifest its most natural urges. An example: think of a vicious meat-eating dinosaur of Earth times past. Their sense of smell & taste are extraordinarily strong, same things with these Reptilians. And, when in the process of creating fear in humans which Reptilians have done on a perpetual basis, or creating fear in any mammalian being, a natural enzyme the human body creates & releases when it goes into a state of fear… this enzyme enhanced blood is like a drug that literally gives these Reptilians an enormous ‘high’. Ergo the use of alleged ‘satanic’ rituals you may have heard about. These rituals have been simply used as the best possible way to terrorize people… to have their bodies generate & release this enzyme… which creates a drug like high effect of fear-enhanced blood, for Reptilians whenever they are in a 3D organic form and they feed & ingest it. No more, no less. Almost unbelievable. But yes, it’s real. And yes, it’s sick.

There are also telltale signs about these beings that occasionally give them away including the look & shape of what should be a human eyeball… specifically the iris and pupil… that often times literally looks Reptilian, because it is.

Also know that Reptilians are known throughout the universe as master geneticists. Over millennia, they have literally genetically created ‘new’ races of beings from blending their original organic Reptilian DNA, with conquered races of other people, including human(oids) from various planets.

When Reptilians create these hybrid beings, these hybrid organic 3D people have intelligence, but likely no soul or spiritual essence. Many of them are not created through procreation and are not born in the normal birth process; but are rather typically created in a lab, in a petri dish, they are then ‘grown’ over a period of time in a nutrient solution, and become fully formed blended reptilian/human(oid) beings at ‘birth’.

Reptilian geneticists, using technology, then download specific information into their hybrid brains over & over again to keep these hybrid workers productive. This is why they are blended reptilian/human(oid) hybrids, but not Earth humans.

About this section on Reptilians, whether they are 4th dimensional Reptilians, projecting a human holographic form, or like the above, are 3D organic ‘blended’ beings of mixed races – they are Reptilians… that look human. Not necessarily Earth human, but they look human. However, make no mistake, they are still – Reptilians.

And these four (4) Reptilian races, Draco, Hydra, Orion & Sirius B, they are typically very intelligent, and have chosen to be: ruthless, self-centered, self-serving, vicious, arrogant, mean, and have no ethics or morals at all. They will kill without a moments notice. Everything they do, all of the decisions & actions they have made & taken over thousands of years on our planet Earth… is to their benefit, to support their species and goals. No other reasons.


Reptilians – domination & control of Earth’s human populace.
Their goal is and always has been: domination, enslavement & control. Directing and managing the human race to best serve them… with us as a slave race and as a natural resource for them.

How have they instituted this domination & control? By basing the totality of Earth people’s lives around: economics, money, earning a living. Think of your monthly mortgage, or rent, & utilities. This is absolutely a system of enslavement. This is one method of control.

How else have they instituted this control? Infiltration and abuse of power at the highest levels of governments & the military. What emotional ‘lever’ have they used to institute this control? Fear.

Fear through the media news outlets promoting the idea of starting, or considering to start, a war;

Fear through the starting of wars and killing of innocent people;

Fear through initiating & promoting through the media news outlets the idea of possible “false flag” terrorism events;

Fear through actually instigating and/or producing “false flag” events that kill hundreds or thousands of people, and worse;

further enhancing that fear by creating & ‘passing’ laws which restrict individual human sovereign rights & freedoms;

perpetually instilling fear in people by beaming highly agitating, low energy electronic & sonic frequencies to a variety of locations & populations around the planet… that is until the Procyon people of the Andromeda Council destroyed their Reptilian undersea bases & frequency transmitter beacons; and the list goes on and pervades almost every aspect of our society.

It is time to end this global fear based control and influence on the human beings of this planet.

It is time for us to be free once more.

Your tax dollars at work: State Department trained 450 imams on “compatibility of women’s rights and Islam”

 

 

Oh yeah, this is going to work. Forget about the Qur’an’s anti-woman passages.

 

The Qur’an likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills: “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” (2:223).

 

It declares that a woman’s testimony is worth half that of a man: “Get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her” (2:282).

 

It allows men to marry up to four wives, and have sex with slave girls also: “If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice” (4:3).

 

It rules that a son’s inheritance should be twice the size of that of a daughter: “Allah (thus) directs you as regards your children’s (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females” (4:11).

 

Worst of all, the Qur’an tells husbands to beat their disobedient wives: “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them” (4:34). It allows for marriage to pre-pubescent girls, stipulating that Islamic divorce procedures “shall apply to those who have not yet menstruated” (65:4).

 

But never mind all that. Islam and women’s rights are compatible! The State Department is on the job: “State Dept. Trained 450 Imams on the ‘Compatibility of Women’s Rights and Islam,’” by Elizabeth Harrington for CNS News, August 16 (thanks to David):

 

(CNSNews.com) – As part of its effort to combat “gender-based violence,” the U.S. State Department has trained 450 Muslim leaders (imams), using a curriculum focusing on the “compatibility of women’s rights and Islam,” according to a report released on Friday.

 

The report, “United States Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-based Violence Globally,” was released by the State Department and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) on Aug. 10, after President Barack Obama issued an executive order instructing government agencies to come up with a “multi-year strategy that will more effectively prevent and respond to gender-based violence globally.”

 

The report cites “anecdotal evidence,” gleaned form interviews and focus groups, to show how the imam training has helped, as follows (verbatim):

 

— One religious leader from Herat (Afghanistan) explained that since participating in project trainings, when he presides over marriages, whether he officiates the wedding ceremony or not, he asks the age of the bride and for proof of her consent, and he uses the opportunity to publicly discuss the importance of the bride’s consent to marriage. He even reported stopping a marriage when he found out that the bride had not given her consent.

 

— Focus group participants agreed that since their local imams have started discussing women’s right to education in Friday sermons, the barriers for women going to school have been reduced.

 

— Several focus group participants recounted stories about women’s families providing them with a fair share of inheritance after the imams in their communities were

influenced by the curriculum and trainings.

 

— Community members in the focus groups agreed that most imams have been speaking out about women’s rights in Islam, women’s inheritance rights, and condemning violence against women.

 

— In some communities, wives of imams trained in the curriculum were using it to educate women in their communities of their rights.

 

The U.S. government defines gender-based violence as violence that is directed at an individual based on his or her biological sex, gender identity, or how a person is perceived to follow socially defined norms of masculinity and femininity.

 

The State Department says such violence includes physical, sexual, and psychological abuse; threats; coercion; arbitrary deprivation of liberty; and economic deprivation.

 

Millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars are poured into the effort: For FY 2013, the State Department and USAID requested $147.1 million for programs addressing gender-based violence worldwide, an increase of approximately $30 million over the FY 2012 request of $117.2 million.

 

Shari’a law

 

In many Muslim-majority nations, the harsh and unequal treatment of women stems from strict Islamic (shari’a) law.

 

In its 2011 report on Human Rights Practices for Afghanistan, the State Department noted that “endemic violence and societal discrimination against women and girls” remains one of the country’s most significant problems.

 

The human rights report cites forced marriages, child marriages, the practice of exchanging women to settle disputes, forced isolation, and honor killings as “customary practices” in Afghanistan.

 

Some observers point to verses in the Koran that justify discrimination against women in society. For instance, Sura 4:3, sanctions polygamy, saying men can have up to four wives. “And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you of [other] women, two or three or four,” the Koran states.

 

Another verse, Sura 2:282, indicates that a woman’s testimony is worth only half that of a man: “And bring to witness two witnesses from among your men. And if there are not two men [available], then a man and two women from those whom you accept as witnesses – so that if one of the women errs, then the other can remind her”…

Intelligence and Special Operations forces speak out against treason: Countless leaks, interviews and decisions by the Obama Administration

Intelligence and Special Operations forces speak out against treason: Countless leaks, interviews and decisions by the Obama Administration

Gd bless these men and women who risk serious retribution. But they do, and they do it for their nation.

Intelligence and Special Operations forces are furious and frustrated at how President Obama and those in positions of authority have exploited their service for political advantage. Countless leaks, interviews and decisions by the Obama Administration and other government officials have undermined the success of our Intelligence and Special Operations forces and put future missions and personnel at risk.

The unwarranted and dangerous public disclosure of Special Forces Operations is so serious — that for the first time ever — former operators have agreed to risk their reputations and go ‘on the record’ in a special documentary titled “Dishonorable Disclosures.” Its goal is to educate America about serious breaches of security and prevent them from ever happening again.

Use of military ranks, titles & photographs in uniform does not imply endorsement of the Dept of the Army or the Department of Defense. All individuals are no longer in active service with any federal agency or military service.

Eliot Ness

Enter Eliot Ness

By Pamela Geller

Eliot Ness is running for vice president of the United States.

When Chicago gangs were running roughshod over cities and towns across the nation and all hope was seemingly lost, the FBI brought in the “G Men,” led by Eliot Ness. Ness was good, righteous, and uncompromised. Ness could not be bought. And Ness brought the forces of evil to its knees.

He wasn’t glam, and his arrest of Al Capone, the kingpin of the outlaws, wasn’t sexy (tax evasion), but it worked.

Why do I bring this up? Because I can’t help but see the ghost of Eliot Ness when I look at Paul Ryan. The paradigm is the same. Of course, this time evil is cloaked in a rogue presidency, and they are making the laws, but the battle is the same: right and wrong, good and evil, etc. And Ryan, like Ness, is righteous and uncompromised.

Eliot Ness took on mob boss Al Capone and his army during the Prohibition Era. He assembled a special force of agents who were known for their incorruptibility — “the untouchables.” Like Ness, Ryan came from humble beginnings. And he believes firmly in individual rights.

According to the Republican National Convention Blog, “Paul Ryan developed his political philosophy reading the works of free market authors including Milton Friedman, F. A. Hayek, and Ayn Rand. ‘The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand,’ Ryan said at a D.C. gathering four years ago honoring the author of ‘Atlas Shrugged’ and ‘The Fountainhead.'”

When he was announced as Romney’s choice for vice president, Ryan’s words were a direct rebuke to Obama’s socialist rhetoric of class warfare: “We look at one another’s success with pride, not resentment, because we know that as more Americans work hard, take risks, succeed, more people will prosper, more communities will benefit. And individual lives will be improved. … America, America is just more than a place, though. America is an idea. It’s the only country founded on an idea. Our rights come from nature and God, not from government. That’s right. That’s who we are, that’s how we built this country. That’s who we are. That’s what made us great. That’s what made us great. We promise equal opportunity, not equal outcomes.”

Ryan has, according to the Washington Times, “a very conservative voting record during his seven terms in Congress, including repeated votes against spending bills, unemployment-benefit extensions and most of President Obama’s agenda.”

The Times noted his stellar record on reining in out-of-control government spending — a record that betters those of most of his fellow Republicans: “His chief breaks with most Republicans usually came on spending bills, where he regularly voted against his party leadership when they controlled the chamber before 2007. In 1999, he voted against expanding the Peace Corps, and voted against expanding debt relief to impoverished nations.”

And in stark contrast to the Obama administration’s enabling of the Muslim Brotherhood’s stealth jihad in the United States, Ryan “voted for the Patriot Act and later voted to preserve federal authorities’ ability under that law to seek library records in their investigations — a major test point for the legislation.”

I believe that Paul Ryan, an intellectual leader, and his ilk are the antidote to what ails this suffering nation. Barack Hussein Obama and his band of moochers, looters, and destroyers are no match for the likes of him. I underestimated Romney, and I am glad to say it. Paul Ryan was an inspired choice. What a clear and clean message. Despite the media’s war on American exceptionalism, capitalism, individual rights, business and businessmen, the producers, the family, and conservatism, Romney did not blink. He picked an uncompromised conservative (and in doing so gave the media the middle finger). Romney chose well.

With the selection of Paul Ryan as Romney’s vice presidential candidate, the choice could not be more clearly defined.

  • Pro-America vs. anti-America
  • Individualism vs. Statism
  • Capitalism vs. socialism

This campaign should be not called “restore America.” It should be “Free America.”

Dhimmitude on the Hudson

Dhimmitude on the Hudson: Mayor Swiderski and Board of trustees submits and requests the whole town do the same
To: Mayor Peter Swiderski (mayor@hastingsgov.org) From: Pamela Geller

Mayor Swiderski,Before I file my story can you tell us why no  such mailing went out concerning the vicious anti-Semitic ads. The  anti-Israel ads were twice the buy (100 kiosks.) This speaks to a  systemic, institutionalized anti-semitism prevalent in your  administration and among the Board.
Care to comment?

Thank you,
Pamela Geller

 

The dhimmi Mayor of Hastings-on-Hudson sent me the email below to ….. taunt me? It is jawdropping. The Board of Trustees sent a letter to the entire village last night asking residents “to express their dismay” to Joseph Lhota (here) concerning our islamorealism ad. I suggest you do the same, shruggers. I would write to everyone (even to this clown of a Mayor). But be polite. Hastings-on-Hudson, this is your taxpayer dollars at work!
Do these polticians really believe that all Muslims support jihad? And if they believe it, why surrender so swiftly?
The Muslim Brotherhood groups don’t even have to agitate anymore. They can just sit back and watch these useful idiots and dhimmis do their work for them.
The Mayor and this Board of spineless wonders maintained their neutrality about the anti-semitic ad; they were silent about that. Notice how these clowns at one government entity has “complained” to another about private citizens exercising their constitutional rights
Again, I encourage all Atlas readers to write to Joseph Lhota, Chairman, MTA, 347 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10017 or to the general comment email at the MTA website at http://mta-nyc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/mta_nyc.cfg/php/enduser/ask.php, to express your support for these ads and your “dismay” at Hastings-on-Hudson’s politically correct pandering and running interference for genocidal jihadists, as well as for their craven and disquieting disregard for the freedom of speech of those with whom they disagree.

I wanted to share with you what our Board of Trustees sent to the entire village tonight. Peter Swiderski Mayor ================= Date: Fri, 17 Aug 2012 22:08:43 -0400<br> From: “Village of Hastings-on-Hudson Announcements” Subject: Message from the Board: Controversial MetroNorth Billboard on train platform

Fellow Residents –

A few days ago, a billboard appeared on the city-bound MetroNorth platform (as well as, apparently, throughout Westchester) sponsored by “The American Freedom Defense Initiative”. This billboard starts with “19,250 Islamic attacks since 9/11” and states that “It’s not Islamophobia, it’s Islamorealism.”
<p>While the Board respects everyone’s right to free speech, we categorically condemn the bigotry and innuendo expressed by this billboard message. To tar a faith and its followers because of the actions of a few is deplorable, hateful and morally repugnant. Such an ad neither reflects the ideals of this community, nor, we believe, of our nation. America welcomes people of all faiths, including millions of the Muslim faith who call our country (including those who live in our village) their home. They, like the vast majority of believers in that (and all other) major religions, embrace peace and do not endorse the violence wrought by a fanatic few.
<p>The Board of Trustees have joined the many others who have already complained to MetroNorth about this ad campaign placement. MetroNorth’s Media Relations department has issued a statement that concludes with “The MTA does not endorse the viewpoint expressed in these ads or any of the ads that the MTA accepts for display on its facilities.” Apparently, after legal review, this ad did not qualify as hate speech and falls under First Amendment protection. If any resident would like to express their dismay, they should address their letters to Joseph Lhota, Chairman, MTA, 347 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10017 or the general comment email at the MTA website at . http://mta-nyc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/mta_nyc.cfg/php/enduser/ask.php.

Thank you for your attention,

Village of Hastings-on-Hudson
