    global extermination by 2025 – And I’ve sent this & messaged DOD & military base’s in new mexico re: Dulce’s military base as well;

    Crime’s against humanity NO even begin to scratch the surface. ALL $ bought & sold out your humanity & NON-SELF owned Soul (as solely God owns ALL), but re: Even with & like THOSE upon indian reservation (no respect for THE LAND) = New Mexico’s 7 mile’s down Dulce military base (& their just ONE amidst USA, despite global elsewhere), but press – on your computer keyboard the key’s Ctrl & ‘F’ & search / find keyword – type in: Level 6 & see thereof text wordage around thereof:

    Do your own research, come to your own conclusion’s, but DON’T deem vast that they have been doing & are (tick tock ‘time’, right now) aren’t even worse so: global extermination by 2025, & whom (TOP Power deem that 9-1-1 was JUST a TEST, to see just how the global masses would react & respond.

    Globalist’s, misc aren’t really doing what they plan on, their really just passing the time, evil – senselessly, & their talk of reducing 7 billion plus down to 500 million, huh, OH don’t think it’ll stop there, oh no, just so Satan who solely started this Holy War against God, can eventually ‘spite’ God with eventually exhibited all human eventually narrowed down & killed, like Satan’s timeless laughing off it’s ass at us (having put on a clueless humor show for that beast) & deeming to God, “LOOK AT THEM ALL, YOUR SO-CALLED PRIDE & JOY, THEIR SUPPOSE TO REPRESENT YOU?!”

    And you gonna tell me (fellow human’s) THAT no bothers you? OH it will, upon Coming Judgment Day before Jesus per / via your Heaven Life Record (everyone has one, even Adam & Eve), OH . . . I ‘GET’ much BECAUSE I chose to SELF denyingly Holy Warrior rise up for solely Holy Trinity. You (CARE?) to read – hear more? Huh, fine, it’s NOT my Holy intel & I’m no threat nor lone wolf (as lone wolf is NOT in nor of Holy Trinity). Men in Black? Crime’s against humanity NO even begin to scratch the surface.

    Like judge Marshall (“Time Cop”) said, “The sentence is DEATH, to be carried out IMMEDIATELY!” NO waiting around for the right cocktail, & thereof WATCH & WITNESS just how fast 6′ × 9′, misc tier’s would be cleared & emptied!

    Know that it was Adam that sinned first, NOT Eve BUT old men long ago would have vast past since – to date believe otherwise, & why would anyone think? YEAH, huh, right.

    Here’s another one: When satan got defeated re: Jesus’s testing in the desert, Satan just deemed (BECAUSE of ‘?’, ROGUE us all as a whole FROM Holy trinity), “Fine Satan would just go after Jesus’s next best thing, HIS Little One’s ‘children / kids’ through the adult’s”.

    Humanity could (& should have SELF denyingly chosen to Holy Warrior rise up & represent solely Holy Trinity – as to why we were created & thought up in the first with WITH all we’d ever need ie: gift’s, talent’s, skill’s & free will, NOT EVER to exhibitedly deem (UGH) that God is somehow a maid & janitor for us?

    Uh, NOT HE wouldn’t even have to exhale & we’d go out quicker than a candle & think NOT fellow humanity why Jesus REALLY came, huh, there’d be WHAT? Animatedly White streak’s down all adult’s back in fear & terror finding out the REAL Truth), with that we were solely created to self denyingly care take of each & Earth, NOTHING off!

    And the dying Earth? Try: The Natural balance is off – once like a force field shielding, like a computer firewall going down, thus, having allowed in, because of Adam first & THEN Eve, which Satan seeing Adam failing God priorly THEN did God allow Satan to try testing Eve.

    And re: children / kid’s, Jesus: “If any adult’s keep any of these Little one’s from me, they will NEVER see my Father”. MUCH has been changed, suppressed, misc by whether the Vatican, fill in the blank’s over centuries, even destroyed so that later humanity would NOT know of the truth or say that – to do such, simply would have been purposely not been recorded so as to deem that it just never happened & thus, later humanity would not know.,,

    Yeah, I know much BUT it AIN’T me, it’s Holy Trinity, per / via HIm ‘touching’ me, knowing I’d be shunned but I don’t care because I will die for Jesus & have past since – to date until my eventual death, SELF denied voluntary & chosenly Holy Warrior for Jesus Holy Trinity.

    Huh two thing’s: a) THEY of whether globalist’s, etc or TOP – down globally deem cluelessly that – 1) Satan started this nevertheless 70 century – to date Holy War against God, 2) Adam FIRST, NOT Eve, sinned & then Eve of course but old men long ago changing writing’s would have any & all believe otherwise, & SO . . . what then? Satan wins? YEAH, NOT! THINK AGAIN!

    And THEN, there’s this – THEY of globalist’s, etc TOP – down, globally are gonna take out ALL humanity IN, whether clueless or on purpose, accordance WITH this Holy War that Satan solely started against God 70 centuries ago, (voluntary & NON-voluntary suicide / murder, just so Satan can apparently SPITE God that & with, “LOOK AT THEM ALL, THEIR ALL GONE, THEIR (were) SUPPOSE TO HAVE BEEN YOUR / YOU’RE PRIDE & JOY . . .”

    And plus there’s then the – THEIR really not doing – all that they have done & do – do for really no reason, THEIR really just doing it to pass the tick tock ‘time’ . . .

    And worth noting, when Satan got defeated in the desert amidst Jesus’s testing, Satan just deemed, "Fine, I’ll just go after Jesus’s next best thing, HIS Little One’s (children / kid’s) THROUGH the adult’s.

    God gave us all each – embedded within all we’d ever need to self denyingly Holy Warrior rise up & represent Holy Trinity, as we were created to solely do so & THAT of care take of each & Earth, NOTHING off, EVER! THIS PLANET, Earth! It’s like One who goes after dessert before eating the main meal or like human evil weed’s overtaking the garden that is all else . . . PONDER THAT!

    Huh, LISTEN . . . to our fellow human Brother, just another Son of Adam & Eve, Steven Frederic Seagal’s word’s very carefully & TAKE IT TO HEART!

    What ever happened to the sign we needed on Wigglesworth. You remember the one I sent you pictures of over a month ago. That’s o.k. you can talk to the parents when a child gets hit. It’s a drag race in the morning.

    Still waiting for that simple sign change ! ! In the time you have been Alderman I haven’t asked too much from you, yet I still vote for you. Wigglesworth Street needs to have the traffic to SLOW down. With my bad knees , I’m not as fast crossing the street and fear for my safety. Not to mention the kids crossing the street going to school at the height of cars cutting through going as fast as they can. If not you WHO will fix this.

    Hi matt sorry to say i feel everything the city does lately is already decided. the city is good at giving lip service, but does what it wants. Millions spent on researching and as far as im concerned gets me nothing but more red tape or costs, like ive told you before the no u-turn at wisconsin ave should be removed. We have more rats today then ever before, we see that baiting doesnt work, yet the city says all new construction will have so form of baiting. and i guess we’ll be paying a pro to get rid of something thats been around for hundreds of years. So who does he know? and whats the city payroll gone up too? does every dpw worker have thier own work vehecles and then theres the money for the T, money for some underground water storage, somerville ave, and the rezoning, how does that help the avg home owner? ok im done for now, but i do hate making that u-turn at glen street, Bob Iacopucci

    Hi Matt, It was nice to see you at the polls yesterday. I am sorry that the two candidates you supported didn’t make it. I hope Donna Patalano runs again. Her numbers were impressed for a first time candidate. Marian Ryan isn’t invincible, especially if Donna Patalano continues to focus on the reform of the criminal justice system. It is the modern day slavery. It is so racist.

    Now Josh Zakim, he was not ready to be a candidate. I am very inclined to support him as I knew his dad, an awesome human being. But Josh clearly didn’t know the whole scope of the job of the Secretary of State and he fell flat in anything beyond the voting issues. He also really needed to address the missed votes in his past. He should have addressed it right up front and gotten out in front of it. Also he won’t do well with democrats here with taking ‘dark money’. He just wasn’t ready which makes me think he had a lousy campaign chairman/manager.

    The resident association at Pearl Street Park are very interested in pursuing your offer of having a city pick up for large items. We would like to explore an early October date and an April date.

    Let me know.

    How did you feel about the Capuano upset?

    Hi Matt. It’s Julia Poirier, at 21 Auburn Ave. Somehow they missed my yard waste pick up on Saturday, and although I called it in at 311 before 2 PM and asked that they come back by and pick it up, they did not do so. I thought they might pick it up today, Monday, but I Just got home and it’s still on the sidewalk. Is there something you can do to get the yard waste pick up truck to come down Auburn Avenue and pick up my yard waste in front of number 21, which they missed on Saturday? Thanks.

    Hi Matt

    Thanks so much for all you do! It was great to see you tonight and I really appreciate your willingness to help me with the rat issue. I’m continuously battling burrows under my back stairs and they are so brazen that they come out in broad daylight and run across my yard. As I mentioned, I have called the city already and I had them come once and do the initial extermination but that was about 3 years ago, I think. So, since then I’ve paid a professional, but they haven’t done much good. So, any help you can give me will be such a bonus. I think it’s a matter of time before they are in my house!

    Also, Rats definitely my main issue! But, I want to talk to you about an idea I have for an informational campaign to deal with city parking. I think most people don’t know that the driveways in Somerville are almost uniformly able to hold two cars if the drivers pull all the way to the edge of the driveway. I can’t tell you how often on mine and many other city streets, there will be one car parked smack in the middle of what could easily be two spaces. Can’t we educate folks?

    Thanks a bunch!

    I was very touched to hear from Mark Neidergang and then to receive a beautiful card telling me that you had sponsored a moment of silence in memory of my husband, Ralph Hergert. It has been such a long time since Ralph was able to be active in the city, due to his Alzheimer’s Disease, and it meant a lot to me that his contributions to the city he loved are remembered.

    I’d like to know who to contact regarding Chuckie Harris Park. When it was first opened, the gates were locked at night when the park was “closed” and there were lights on in the park. Now the gates are rarely locked and the lights are on intermittently. It would be safer to have the lights on at night.

    Hi! How do I petition for either a crosswalk or a stop sign on Parker Street, where it meets Hadley St? It’s in Charlestown, but the intersection is dangerous for pedestrians and I have to cross that street every day—there are cars parked on both sides of the street decreasing visibility, there’s no stop sign to slow the oncoming traffic down, and there’s no crosswalk to help make them aware that pedestrians are crossing (the sidewalk situation there is awkward, too)

    Thanks for all the good work you’re doing, and for keeping your constituents so well-informed!

    Hi Matt,

    I’d like to discuss this with you, maybe at the next Resistance meeting?

    I am concerned about the awful traffic and road conditions here, specifically around Sullivan Sq, rotary, Washington st, @ macgrath and lower Broadway with not 1 but 2 off-ramps from 93 within a 1/2 mile of each other. While a few construction projects ended, the traffic is still unhealthy and frustrating.

    I worry with Partners and the monstrous 2000 car parking lot about to open along with the already ridiculous amounts of traffic that already exists, that it will get worse. These cars are already using East Somerville as a cut through to Cambridge and Boston 5 days a week.

    The roads in and out of assembly sq., Medford/Washington st., Shrafts rotary were not designed to handle this kind of traffic. Add to this an “international” casino in Everett and it’s going to be a bigger problem. What is the city doing about this and what are our options?

    The areas under the high way are an eye-soar also. Is there anyway to get the state to address the areas like sidewalks, litter, potholes and fence “curtains” around the toxic salt mines they keep here? Isn’t there another place to keep salt chemicals?

    The area behind stop n shop is another example of an unsafe access to/from Assembly Row. Are there any plans to improve these areas and if so, when?

    I look forward to speaking with you at the next resistat meeting.

    Thanks Matt.

    Matt: Can you bring up the right on red sign at the Franklin/Broadway intersection. We found out that the sign was requested by a parent whose child attended the Old St Benedicts school. This family is not in the parish anymore and the traffic is constantly backing during the morning and evening rush hours since Franklin is a cut through for I-93. Removing his sign will help alleviate traffic fumes etc….MGL Chapter 90 says if you have a clear view left and right at the intersection there is no need for a ‘right on red sign’. Thanks Paul

    Hi Matt, this is in regards to the night light at the median strip in front of Kensington St on lower Broadway.

    The city workers came and worked on all three lights but the middle light went out again after a week or two.I would appreciate if you would contact the worker again and tell them we still have a problem there.
