Racist ADL calls critic of Russian American and Russian Israeli gangsters an “anti-semite”

Anti-Black writers cherrypicked through Joan Terrell's pro-Black comments that pro-Russian Facebook deleted

CLEVELAND, OH – School board member Joan Terrell lives in Jersey City, New Jersey where the town’s residents get their nj.com local news like those in Cleveland, Philadelphia, Birmingham,Syracuse and 14 other cities across the nation from an “Advance” website and newspaper privately-owned by the Newhouse family.   The founder is the late Solomon Isadore Neuhaus who was allegedly born of Russian aliens in New York in 1895.  Neuhaus Americanized his name to Samuel Irving Newhouse to hide his Russian ancestry during a very anti-Russian time in American history.

So when concerns or criticism are raised about how alien Russian or Syrian American criminals who practice the Hebrew religion in Jersey City are treating Protestant, Catholic and Islamic citizens with pre-Civil War roots to the nation; officials like Terrell find their viewpoints diminished and under attack as “anti-semitic” by New Jersey’s Russian American-owned newspaper and the Russian leadership of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) or the Southern Poverty Law Center.   The Jersey ADL’s Evan Bernstein, a Russian American, issued the 106-year-old Russian-controlled organization’s “icing on the cake” condemnation of Terrell’s so-called “anti-semitic” words.

In 1915 a Russian alien factory owner who employed underaged children was jailed and lynched in Atlanta, Georgia after he had sex with 13-year-old Mary Phagan and killed her. His name was Leo Frank.  In 2019 a Russian American billionaire named Jeffrey Epstein was jailed, like Frank, for having sex with and trafficking underaged girls as young as 13. Like his fellow Russian pedophile, Epstein was found “self-lynched” in his jail cell 104 years later.

The racist organization was founded by Russian aliens in 1913 to provide public relations “cover” for Russian criminals like factory owner, child labor exploiter and murderer Leo Frank of Atlanta when the victims of their criminal acts or deeds were discovered by law enforcement officers.  Like “lynched in jail” billionaire Russian American Jeffrey Epstein and his boy, Alan Dershowitz, Frank had a sexual taste for 13-year-old girls.  He brutally murdered 13-year-old Irish Protestant Mary Phagan and then used Jim Conley, a U.S. Descendant of Slaves who worked for him and actually “knew” the entire clothing business, to help hide her body. 

Frank led Atlanta’s Russian-controlled B’nai B’rith and behind-the-scenes used the segregated organization to run a “blame the black man” public relations campaign against Conley through their ADL while giving the public appearance they were both innocent of the murder.  White Anglo Saxon Protestants (WASP) didn’t buy the Russian community’s public relations and fact-altering lies about Conley; and Frank was dragged out of jail and lynched in 1915.  With 33 Russians in the U.S. Congress some have subtly joined the Russian-controlled ADL’s public relations campaign to alter legislative history in Frank’s “blame the black man” favor.  

Today the Russian-owned Advance newspapers, and the two Russian-controlled progaganda organizations, want Americans to believe criticizing Russians, even Russian or “Jewish” organized crime figures like Frank, Epstein, Rosenbaum or Solomon Dwek is “anti-semitic.”  Editorially the newspaper’s owners and editors have sought to make the deaths of citizens of “Russia” in the Ukraine’s holocaust more significantly-important to the U.S. that had nothing to do with it than slavery. 

The “Advance” storyline that started in March 1967 with the Neuhaus family’s takeover of the Plain Dealer three months before the Russians leading Israel attacked the USS Liberty, Jews who are really Russians in America and Israel are victims.  Newhouse buried the USS Liberty story in the Plain Dealer with an “Israel apologizes” headline.   [NOTE: This writer enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1972, five years after the USS Liberty’s sailors were slaughtered and wounded; and served in Thailand from 1974 to 1975 during the fall of Saigon.  As a journalist this writer reported for the Cleveland Press that competed with the Plain Dealer in 1980-81. The Plain Dealer was then published under the name Forest City Publishing.  The Cleveland Press’ 1982 closing, and the Newhouse family’s $10 million purchase of its subscription list, generated an antitrust investigation from the U.S. Department of Justice during Ronald Reagan’s presidency after former editorial colleagues investigated and filed a criminal complaint].

In the new politically-correct “Newhouse” paradigm, Russian Americans are not the descendants of the more than 4400 suspected anti-American Russian alien criminals and anarchists U.S. Attorney General Alexander Palmer and FBI director J. Edgar Hoover once rounded up; and who 249 were ultimately deported back to Russia aboard the USS Buford or the “Soviet Ark” in 1919.  It doesn’t matter that Ukrainians either sided with Adolph Hitler’s Nazi’s or Josef Stalin’s Communists.  To Russian American U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, insulting the Ukraine’s first “Jewish” president by refusing to arm a nation whose descendants were either Nazis or Communists, and who fled here like Cleveland’s John Demjanjuk, a  holocaust death camp operator, to avoid prosecution for war crimes, is cause for President Donald Trump’s impeachment.  No one can describe ex-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer as two Russian Americans engaged in a Russian U.S. government takeover from Bloomberg’s Moscow office for fear of being labeled an anti-semite.

The late Russian “American” Solomon Isadore Neuhaus’ newspaper business model killed the industry. He bought a city’s oldest newspaper and then bought out the competition. It got him a U.S. Department of Justice investigation after he purchased the subscription list to the Cleveland Press this writer once reported for when it closed in 1982. They also bought the Sun News and tried to buy Cleveland Life this writer once edited.

When Terrell injected her local thoughts into the discussion about the Russian Israelis killed in their kosher market in the middle of a Jersey City neighborhood populated by Descendants of U.S. Slaves, nj.com reporter Ron Zeitlinger, a Russian American, reached out to Irish Catholic Governor Phil Murphy and Russian American Mayor Steven Fulop for their “she should resign” for daring to speak ill of Russian gangsters and abusive aliens. 

On cue the two members of ethnic and religious groups who sparked a 1917 race war against Descendants of U.S. Slaves they called “strike breakers” in East Saint Louis, Illinois attacked Terrell as an anti-semite and called for her resignation. Their “resignation” call was backed up by the Russian family newspaper’s editorial board. 

Editorial reporters couldn’t figure out why U.S. Descendants of Slaves defended their “sister” and weren’t on the same page as the Russians when they wrote how some in the Black community backed Terrell.  Only Russians are supposed to express ethnic loyalty.  Like Barack Obama denounced his own pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, “Black” people are supposed to turn on each other when a Russian accuses one of “their own” of being an anti-semite.  Blacks are supposed to agree with the ADL and Russian American accused pedophile Alan Dershowitz’s malicious characterization of Minister Louis Farrakhan as a “hate monger” for sharing information about the criminal acts being committed by Russian rabbis in the U.S. and Israel.

In her “full” Facebook post Terrell spelled out a series of local, state and federal law violations that reflected an organized “brute force” real estate-driven effort to disinvest U.S. Descendants of Slaves from the neighborhoods they’ve occupied in Jersey City.  She questioned why programs that supported the “Black” community were being eradicated as more Russian ethnics moved into Jersey City.

The Russian-owned Times of Israel reports as many as 1 million Russian Israelis have immigrated to the U.S. to places like Los Angeles and the New York / New Jersey area.  An astounding number since immigration of Chinese and Russians to the U.S. was capped at 3 percent in 1899 under the Chinese Exclusion Act.  Congress has enacted no “dual citizenship” laws for Russian-Israeli citizens that grants them automatic access to the U.S.  

Russian American Evan Bernstein leads the New York / New Jersey area ADL and serves as a media mouthpiece who covers up for Russian organized crime figures by publicly denouncing their critics as “anti-semites.”

If the Israeli newspaper’s estimates are correct, the vast majority of Russian “aliens” in the nation or in Jersey City could there illegally since “per nation” caps weren’t lifted by Congress to allow 1 million Russians or Russian Israelis to immigrate here during “any” period in U.S. history.  As a Russian American, Fulop holding office as mayor is in the position to obstruct Jersey City police from cooperating with Immigration Customs & Enforcement agents who want to enforce federal immigration laws aliens are violating to commit crimes against and take jobs from native American citizens.

Terrell’s “full” words clearly didn’t justify the deaths of Russian Israeli Moshe Deutsch and his wife, Leah Mindel Ferencz.  The full social media conversation appears to be her response to a comment from Isaiah J. Gadsden, a former candidate for mayor and council. 

Gadsden rhetorically asked why the same attention from city hall didn’t come when “Moorish” citizens were violence victims.   Some members of the nation’s estimated 285 million U.S. Descendants of Slaves and Freed men and women among the nation’s largest “demographic” group have adopted the cultural perspective that they’re Moors.  [NOTE: Estimates include more than 235 million “passing for white” U.S. Slave Descendants like the late FBI Director John Edgar Hoover under this nation’s “one drop” rule].

Terrell made specific reference to organized criminals who were Russian Israeli and Syrian; and who committed despicable crimes against the Black community, federal and local governments in New Jersey; and humanity as a whole.  She cited rampant Russian Israeli violations of local landlord-tenant laws that if enforced should have caused foreign property owners in the U.S. to end up with criminal prosecutions and possible deportations for violating criminal immigration laws and those that protect tenant rights.

Dwek was involved in a $50 million bid rigging scam with 44 elected and appointed officials and individuals running corporations involved in organized crime.  It’s how FBI agents learned three mayors were involved in Rosenbaum’s organ trafficking gang.

Reporters haven’t verified Dwek or his family’s immigration background to know if he’s really an American or another fake-credentialed “Mina Chang.”  There was no discussion of the immigration status of the deceased Russian Israeli kosher market owners to know if their presence and business was in compliance with federal alien laws a Russian American mayor is in the position to obstruct Jersey City police from enforcing.

Terrell appears to have referred to the “religion” of the two Russian Israeli kosher market operators because Eastern European Hebrew followers have chosen to identify themselves by their religion instead of by their “Soviet” or Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, Romanian and Belarusian roots.  The nation’s 5.2 million Russian Americans make up 1.9 percent of the entire population of 320 million.  Comparatively, the 1.9 percent of Americans who have Russian ancestry and the U.S. “Jewish” populations are nearly identical at 5.2 million and 5 million respectively, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. 

The nation’s largest “ethnic” group at 50 million are German Americans who are Protestant.  Fewer than 50,000 German Jews were allowed to leave Adolph Hitler’s Nazi Germany.   What’s been documented is that Nazi and Communist war criminals fled Soviet nations for the U.S. to cities like Cleveland where Ukrainian death camp operator John Demjanjuk hid his war crimes under a fake name as a Ford Motor Company employee job he took from a native American citizen.

Read all of Joan Terrell Paige’s words and not just those Advance’s nj.com reporters chose and omitted to achieve their goal of editorially-terrorizing critics of Russian Americans.

The fact that some Russian Americans and or descendants of Russian aliens like the late Neuhas’ (Newhouse) offspring own major newspaper, radio and television stations helps media owners cast members of their Eastern European ethnic group the way they want instead of like every other ethnic group.  It’s allowed Russian Americans to amplify ridiculously-insane messaging from their ADL and Southern Poverty Law Center that the Nation of Islam and Black Hebrew Israelites are hate groups; or the intentionally-distortive messaging that American nationalism and White nationalism are the same.  The U.S. is an 80 percent Christian and English speaking nation and over 285 million Americans with pre-Civil War ancestry have the DNA of enslaved Africans.  Every other ethnic group is “surrounded” by the majority in the U.S. 

40 percent of Islamic followers in the U.S. are Descendants of Africans this nation forced into slavery.  So there’s no way the Russian-controlled ADL that represents a less than two percent minority demographic group can maliciously “re-image” pre-Civil War descendants of American citizens whose “loyal to this nation alone” ancestors fought under the U.S. flag in every war into anything other than “loyal Americans.”

Russian American U.S. attorneys like Justin Herdman in Cleveland of the Northern District of Ohio have guided FBI agents like Andrew J. Wilson to entrap U.S. Descendants of Slaves like Demetrius Pittman for phony terrorism investigations based on Facebook posts.  Like Minister Louis Farrakhan, Pittman practiced Islam and was critical of Russians; so it made him an anti-semite and Herdman’s fake, FBI-controlled, terror suspect. 

Trump appointed the former Jones Day attorney to prosecute federal laws in the Northern  District of Ohio.  Not even Muslim-hating Trump tweeted Herdman’s second fake terrorist bust.   Herdman’s former law firm has also represented the Russian Federation from a Moscow office led by Russian attorney Vladimir Lechtman.  [NOTE: the Russian American U.S. Attorney has taken no steps to enforce the Foreign Agents Registration Act or the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act against his former employer’s known violations.]

Identifying themselves only by their religion has allowed Russian Americans and non-citizen Russian Israelis to deflect from their places of ancestral origins and cast themselves as victims of religious oppression or “hate crimes” when they’ve been attacked and killed at their synagogues and businesses.  It’s almost like an intentional discrimination trap.  As soon as a citizen who follows Christianity or Islam calls a Russian American or Russian Israeli by their self-identifying religious label as “Jews” they’re labeled an anti-semite.  Russian is not a semitic language.

The comments Terrell posted on Facebook, that Russian American Mark Zuckerberg’s team deleted, appear to focus on the U.S. Descendant of Slave ancestry of at least one victim who testified how after he relocated to Israel Rosenbaum’s armed Russian Israeli thugs pressured him under an “a deal is a deal” threat to give up his kidney.  No kidney.  You don’t leave alive.   Zuckerberg agreed with Russian officials leading Israel to censor critics of the foreign government from his social media forum even in the U.S.

This evil Russian Israeli trafficker of human organs, Rabbi Levy Izhak Rosenbaum, is one of the individuals Joan Terrell criticized that resulted in Facebook employees Russian American Mark Zuckerberg employs deleting her words. No matter how despicable their conduct, criticizing Russians is labeled “anti-semitic” by the racist and Russian-controlled Anti-Defamation League. Rosenbaum’s international organ trafficking ring of organs taken from “dark” people confirms deep-seated suspicions that Russians moving into urban neighborhoods under the guise of their religion are kidnapping some of the 600,000 children who go missing, annually, in the U.S. The fact the national media has gone through great lengths not to tell the story of the missing who’ve been found, or share pictures of his victims, only adds to the strength of the conspiracy American families of the missing refuse to let go.

Rosenbaum’s victims were identified as “mostly Israelis” by the newspapers the late Neuhaus’ Advance publishes. Terrell’s comments appear to voice the U.S. Descendant of Slaves community’s outrage at the Russian Israeli butcher Rosenbaum’s 2.5 year sentence by U.S. District Court Judge Ann Woods for organ trafficking.  Woods, who is also a U.S. Descendant of Slaves, shocked the community with her weak sentence though she was bound by the limits of the “moral turpitude” immigration laws Congress enacted.   

Rosenbaum’s attorney, Russian American Edward Shulman, said his client committed no crimes involving “moral turpitude.”  President Barack Obama, the president who uplifted “dreamers” and not U.S. Slave Descendants, led his Homeland Security department not to deport Rosenbaum.  Congress has failed to enact a section of 8 U.S.C. § 1251(a)(2)(A)(i) to include “organ trafficking” as a crime of “moral turpitude” in its immigration laws now influenced by 33 “current” Russian American members of Congress. 

Knowing the Russian Israeli Rosenbaum’s gangsterous tactics in using armed Russian thugs to force people who were not Russian to give up their organs, Terrell’s “brute force” comments about “Jews” or Russians, pro-Nazi Ukrainians, Polish, Romania, Belarusian and Slovak peoples in the U.S. from communist or once-Nazi nations is not without actual and historical context.

From Russian Samuel Gomper’s violent labor wars through the American Federation of Labor he founded in 1881, and their political assassinations, Russian “American” and Russian Israeli organized criminals following the Hebrew faith and calling themselves “Jews” in America have gone from mob boss Meyer Lansky and casinos to Rabbi Levy Rosenbaum ‘s organ trafficking and Solomon Dwek’s government fraud and neighborhood-busting real estate schemes. 

By 1919 Russian immigrants were being deported as violent “Red” or Communist anarchists under the 1903 Anarchist Exclusion Act for their bloody labor wars and Cleveland, Ohio Russian Leon Czolgosz’s assassination of President William McKinley in Buffalo, New York in 1901.  Poland didn’t exist as an independent nation until 1921.  From the 1500’s until Josef Stalin formed the Soviet Union in 1922, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Armenia and Romania were all under Russian rule.

With such an “anti-American” history it’s curious how 33 members of the U.S. Congress in “anti-Russian” America are Russian American.  Among them are two Russian Americans leading the questionably unconstitutional impeachment against President Donald Trump over the once Nazi and Communist Ukraine no one in the U.S. cares about; U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff and U.S. Senator Jerold Nadler.  Ex-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders are ancestrally seeking to become the first Russians to lead the nation as president.   Pete Buttigieg’s Armenian ancestry also makes him a Descendant of Soviets.

One of the “Jews” Joan Terrell named was a son of Syrian aliens named Solomon Dwek. His parents founded a segregated yeshiva.

26 U.S. states have curiously enacted foreign-interest legislation in the anti-Russian U.S. that requires contractors, even educators, to sign agreements they won’t criticize the white supremacist Russian government of Israel on Palestinian land that Benjamin Netanyahu and Benny Gantz are fighting to lead.  The same Congress sends nearly $4 billion in aid to arm a Soviet nation whose military attacked the USS Liberty in 1967 and slaughtered 34 U.S. Navy men.  171 were wounded. 

Russian born “Israeli” general Moshe Dayan ordered the deceitfully-murderous attack in an effort to trick the U.S. into believing Egypt’s government destroyed the ship during their Six Day War so President Lyndon Johnson would order an attack on that nation for the Soviets in “Israel.”  The first Russian Israeli attack on U.S. citizens came in 1954, or 7 years after they arrived in Palestine and set up their own white supremacist and Soviet-controlled government.  Russian Israeli intelligence agents orchestrated the Lavon Affair or Operation Susannah and planted bombs in theaters and libraries Americans and British citizens used to blame on the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Russians Josef Stalin sought at first to send to California to settle in the 1920’s instead of Palestine in 1947, and who now operate a racist religious government called Israel on Palestinian land, identify Black Africans who follow the Hebrew faith, and the Sudanese, Eritrean and Egyptian Africans entering their borders, as “infiltrators” they won’t let work.  People who don’t follow Hebrew are called “goyim” or “non-believers.”  Derogatorily it refers to every other people but Russian or Soviet Hebrews as belonging to bastard races of humans. 

The “goyim” are the “mainly Israeli” individuals the New Jersey reporters who work for Newhouse’s Advance identified as Rosenbaum’s victims.  In May 2012 Russian Israelis entered a majority Black “Israeli” area and, like in East Saint Louis, burned out their businesses and homes.  No Russian-owned media outlet but the New York Times carried the story in the U.S.  The Newhouse’s Advance publications completely ignored it.

Facebook should be boycotted for its censorship of American voices like Joan Terrell’s and mine. Mark Zuckerberg’s operating under a censorship agreement with a foreign government makes him a propagandist of that government; and an unregistered foreign agent in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

The Rosenbaum story barely drew national attention as the nation’s first “prosecuted” organ trafficking case.  In Cleveland the Plain Dealer and cleveland.com owned by the Neuhaus or Newhouse family didn’t mention Rosenbaum’s religion or that he was a rabbi.  Newhouse’s AL.com or its Birmingham media outlet didn’t touch the story; so readers in the majority of Advance’s “urban” media markets are unaware of the Russian Israeli involvement in the nation’s “first” and so far “only” prosecuted organ trafficking case.  Published reports reveal that federal law enforcement officers have been made aware of other Russian rabbis whose acts against their victims are worse than sex-offending Catholic priests.

None of Neuhaus’ descendants shared information about the “Black” victim’s name or picture in any of their publications.  None of the Russian Israeli Rosenbaum’s victims were identified by name and picture by any national media organization … anywhere. 

The U.S. Department of Justice knows officials, physicians and other medical personnel at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York who approved and participated in removing and transferring organs in Rosenbaum’s “international” U.S. to Israel organ trafficking crime gang.  Nowhere are they referenced in the FBI agent’s Rosenbaum complaint.

Terrence Egger is Advance’s former Plain Dealer and Cleveland.com publisher. Egger and this writer met, once, and he didn’t get the memo that Cleveland wasn’t his to editorially-control. After exposing Egger’s tenure on the Cleveland Clinic board that closed Huron Hospital in East Cleveland this writer once led as mayor, and after exposing the mysterious June 2012 death of Egypt’s ex-spy boss, Omar Suleiman, at the Russian-controlled hospital; readers decided Egger was involved in too much fucked up shit and figured the Plain Dealer was only worth reading 4-days a week. Egger was transferred to Philadelphia where he now leads a team of editorially-stifled writers at the Philadelphia Inquirer. A visit to 1500 Cleveland stores in October to distribute 50,000 copies of EJBNEWS.COM shows piles of old and unsold Plain Dealer copies. Egger was a horribly-conflicted newspaper publisher while he tried to manipulate the people of greater Cleveland.

It’s ironic that in Cleveland Advance Newhouse publisher, Terrence Egger, served on the Cleveland Clinic board that voted to close Huron Hospital in predominantly-Black East Cleveland in 2011 after endorsing my completely incompetent opponent, Gary A. Norton, Jr., for mayor in 2009.  Norton’s transcript between Morehouse and Cleveland State University revealed 10 D’s and 8 F’s.  Morehouse removed him after three years for failing grades.  He was fired by Miami Dade County government from the only management “training” job he ever held.  Norton was recalled by voters in 2016 after a second Plain Dealer endorsement.

Egger’s “death increasing” decision to support both Norton and hide the criminal and government-obstruting details of Huron Hospital’s closing eliminated a life-saving emergency room and the state’s number one gunshot wound trauma center.   Norton returned East Cleveland to fiscal emergency 33 months after I left office.  The Plain Dealer has never reported or called for the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the $20 million contract city council never approved; or how he spent $8 million without the money ever being deposited into a city account or with council approval.

In Cleveland like in Philadelphia where he now works for Advance, missing children were not Egger’s editorial priority.  It’s been the same for the Newhouse family’s Advance publications in 19 U.S. cities.  Advance or the Newhouse family’s privately-owned Star-Ledger, Times of Trenton, Jersey Journal, South Jersey Times, Hunterdon County Democrat and Suburban News don’t exist to empower any citizens but those in their family.  Egger now guides Philadelphia Inquirer and Philly.com reporters away from stories that affect his or the Newhouse’s business and political interests.

Moshe Deutsch and Leah Mindel Ferencz are the Russian Israeli’s killed in their kosher market. Jersey City police officer Joseph Seals was killed. So was Miguel Douglas who worked for the Russian couple at their store.

Terrell is at least a 9th generation American Descendant of U.S. Slaves like the 48 million Black and another more than 50 million “one drop” citizens of the nation.  

600,000 children go missing annually in the U.S. and nearly 70 percent of them are U.S. Slave Descendants or “Black.” The majority do not return home.  The idea that Terrell is being called an “anti-semite” by the Russian-controlled ADL for expressing the outrage of Black people across the nation over missing family members, who some suspect are being trafficked for organs, is insane. 

In Terrell’s case she’s being labeled an anti-semite for daring to speak the names and crimes of two despicable and already-prosecuted and convicted Russian gangsters.  No logical person would defend them or seek to censor their critic.  The amount of orchestrated derogatory attention Terrell’s been getting from a rich Russian family’s newspaper for criticizing at least one convicted international Russian Israeli organ trafficker makes no logical sense.

Eric Jonathan Brewer
Cleveland's most influential journalist and East Cleveland's most successful mayor is an East Saint Louis, Illinois native whose father led the city's petition drive in 1969 to elect the first black mayor in 1971. Eric is an old-school investigative reporter whose 40-year body of editorial work has been demonstrably effective. No local journalist is feared or respected more. Trained in newspaper publishing by the legendary Call & Post Publisher William Otis Walker in 1978 when it was the nation's 5th largest Black-owned publication, Eric has published and edited 13 local, regional and statewide publications across Ohio. Adding to his publishing and reporting resume is Eric's career in government. Eric served as the city's highest paid part-time Special Assistant to ex-Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White. He served as Chief of Staff to ex-East Cleveland Mayor Emmanuel Onunwor; and Chief of Communications to the late George James in his capacity as the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority's first Black executive director. Eric was appointed to serve as a member of the state's Financial Planning & Supervision Commission to guide the East Cleveland school district out of fiscal emergency and $20 million deficit. Former U.S. HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson told Eric in his D.C. office he was the only mayor in the nation simultaneously-managing a municipal block grant program. Eric wrote the city's $2.2 million Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant application. A HUD Inspector General audit of his management of the block grant program resulted in "zero" audit findings. As a newspaper publisher, Eric has used his insider's detailed knowledge of government and his publications to lead the FBI and state prosecutors to investigations that resulted in criminal prosecutions of well-known elected officials in Ohio; and have helped realign Cleveland's political landscape with the defeat of candidates and issues he's exposed. Eric's stories led to the indictments of the late Governor George Voinovich's brother, Paul Voinovich of the V Group, and four associates. He asked the FBI to investigate the mayor he'd served as chief of staff for public corruption; and testified in three federal trials for the prosecution. He forced former Cuyahoga County Coroner Dr. Elizabeth Balraj to admit her investigations of police killings were fraudulent; and to issue notices to local police that her investigators would control police killing investigations. Eric's current work has resulted in Cuyahoga County Judge John Russo accepting the criminal complaint he guided an activist to file against 24 civil rights-violating police officers in the city he once led for operating without valid peace officer credentials. USA Today reporters picked up on Eric's police credentials reporting from his social media page and made it national. Eric is the author of of his first book, "Fight Police License Plate Spying," which examines the FBI and local police misuse of the National Crime Information Center criminal records history database. An accomplished trumpet player and singer whose friendship with Duke Fakir of the Four Tops resulted in his singing the show's closing song, "Can't Help Myself": Curtis Sliwa of New York's Guardian Angels counts Eric among his founding chapter leaders from the early 1980's role as an Ohio organizer of over 300 volunteer crime fighters in Cleveland, Columbus and Youngstown, Ohio. For his work as a young man Eric was recognized by Cleveland's Urban League as it's 1983 Young Man of the Year. Known in Cleveland for his encyclopedic knowledge of government and history, and intimately-connected with the region's players, every local major media outlet in Cleveland has picked up on one of Eric's stories since 1979. There is no mainstream newspaper, television or radio outlet in Cleveland that does not include an interview with Eric Jonathan Brewer in its archives over the past 40 years.
