City Council Passes Anti-Corporate Personhood Resolution

The City Council passed Resolution 1172 yesterday opposing the United States Supreme Court decision in Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission, which declared corporations have the same first amendment rights as individuals, a concept that has come to be known as corporate personhood. This decision, which was made just shy of a year ago, prohibited the government from placing limits on individual contributions and has become a favored target of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Protesters affiliated with Occupy Wall Street supported the passage of the Council’s anti-corporate personhood resolution and approximately twenty of them packed the observation balcony during the stated meeting yesterday where they applauded for the bill and booed dissenting members. In addition to expressing opposition for the Supreme Court decision, the resolution called for a Constitutional amendment “to provide that corporations are not entitled to the entirety of protections or ‘rights’ of natural persons, specifically so that the expenditure of corporate money to influence the electoral process is no longer a form of constitutionally protected speech.” Read More

    Sons’ Corporate Social Responsibility is
    Written with Animal Blood: Read an Excerpt from Chairman Peter Booth Wiley’s
    Oral Pulp History

     

    While
    You are reading the John Wiley & Sons
    Konfidential piece, You can disagree with my often hilarious comments in a
    decent Teutonic accent of authority to the Chief‘s shocking interview answers,
    but You can‘t put a benign face on the Wiley-phenomenon.

    Advanced studies in
    Behavioral Sciences show that small changes in a man’s sex-life can have XX-large
    effects on keeping secrets. I have been working for eighteen months at John Wiley &
    Sons’ archive, which was for me as if visiting a U.S.
    war-of-aggression zone where sexual degradation, torture and rape flourish.
    Instead of forcing me to lick the Liberty
    Bell, my hellish work at Wiley’s archive was interrupted by Chief Peter
    Booth Wiley’s disgusting demonstrations of affection:
    his ungentlemanly hands fondled among my pink boxer-shorts as the predator
    whispered, mouth foaming, a scary “I love you“ into my ears, as if he
    were a schoolboy crush. Sexually violent Peter Booth Wiley had been a religiously inspired ‘sworn homosexual virgin’ who broke his promissory words and began
    flirting with his homosexual skeleton in the closet.

    Let’s dig a
    little deeper into the oral pulp history of the born-again but very
    obnoxious Chief Peter Booth Wiley, scrupulously
    researched by Yours Truly (a latter day Nellie Bly) and with gory narrations of
    the Chief’s gritty-secret side!

    Chief
    Peter Booth Wiley made mammon the old-fashioned way – he
    inherited it. Recipes and cookbooks
    have long been a favorite of the Wiley clan and that is why Chief Peter
    Booth Wiley dons a bloodied
    professional chef hat and presents a whole chapter with recipes for barbecued
    dog meat in his cookbook. A real pig’s breakfast!

    Chief Peter Booth Wiley is a blood-sport lover and has picked up that favorite dish of him
    in the cock-fighting circles of California’s Anderson Valley,
    where the landed cock-man finds entertainment and where grilled dog flesh is
    served to fill hungry spectator’s snouts. The son of an arsehole was
    obsessed with “watching the dogs mate” before they were slaughtered
    and grilled for human consumption. Did the Bible quoting poster-boy for
    American fascism use the skinned and blood drained dogs for sacrifices and
    worshipping before barbequing and roasting the dog meat? It makes me wonder if Chief Peter Booth Wiley, having a hard time restraining his
    inner-fascist, was dancing wildly in a
    voodoo ritual around the dead dog carcasses.

    “I love to go to cockfights, it’s a bloody show”. What Chief Peter Booth Wiley loves compares for other people to child pornography – it is illegal. “It’s a freaking slaughter”. Is the
    torture of animals – the terrible suffering rooster, bitten, ripped, torn and
    screaming in pain – sexually stimulating for the Chief? “It has an untamed
    artistic quality to it”. This was not meant as a joke by
    Chief-Chicken-Shit!

    The Chief’s
    rank underwear is spotted with urine and shit, just like the feathers of a
    frightened fighting cock. In the illegal subculture of cockfights bets on
    favorite cocks can be placed and Chief Peter Booth Wiley likes to bet money for animal blood. Imagine all the eyeballs the
    author will get among the cock-fighting crowds for his literary contribution ‘Cockfighting for Dummies’,
    an imprint by shady publisher Wiley. The academically-challenged predatory pig, whose currency is blood,
    can certainly expect to hear some ringing cash registers from the sale of his
    reference book.

  2. Filthy racism @ US textbook publisher John Wiley &
    Sons‏

     

    Chairman Peter Booth Wiley pwiley@wiley.com uses John
    Wiley & Sons to sell his Racism

     

    Chairman Peter Booth Wiley is a worst-case racist who likes to use obscene
    expressions. He is also promoting race discriminations in an evil way – that is
    what sociologists refer to as intentional discrimination. His idea of proposing
    canned edible John Wiley & Sons textbooks for the African university markets
    will turn into a real can of worms for him.

     

    Listen to Chairman Peter Booth Wiley’s mud slinging, the champion of
    all things African: “With my great invention of canned edible learning
    products I have solved the African hunger and illiteracy problems for everyone
    not suffering from bulimia and learning disorders”. The Chairman’s information leak shows that people in America think
    it’s cool to be stupid.

     

    Chairman Peter Booth Wiley was sliding off his chair and tried hard to push
    himself back up again. His racial joke amused him so much that he burst into
    laughter and whisky sprayed out from his mouth. “I want to bring edible
    education tools to them Negroes”. Chairman Peter Booth Wiley virulent attack speech is a
    repulsive, bad American dream come true! John Wiley & Sons itself is an uncivilized and racist assault to the very idea of academic freedom.

     

    Is Chairman Peter Booth Wiley going to run for political office like that other
    member of the Ku Klux Klan named David Dukes? The First Amendment to the American Constitution
    covers Chairman Peter Booth Wiley’s hate speech and makes him
    an honorary Ku Klux Klan member, where such racism flourishes. “I know
    another one”, he announced with tears of laughter in his eyes. “Do
    you know the colonial law of the plantations in Africa?”
    The master-slave interpretations of Chairman Peter Booth Wiley take
    Africans to a new low point of reference. “Twenty-one on the ass
    to make the lazy nigger work again” he told for extra credit. After his
    reflection on race relations in America,
    Chairman Peter Booth Wiley shrieked and was
    shaken with laughter. It’s the same old filthy dehumanizing business that has
    been at the core of John Wiley & Sons all along.

     

    John Wiley & Sons, Inc. might have to recall its
    contaminated edible canned education books.

     

    I should have gotten a
    restraining order on the grounds that Chairman Wiley violates California’s antidiscrimination laws: “Selling our
    products in Africa is like throwing pearls before
    swine”. Chairman Peter Booth Wiley became more and more bad
    tempered. “They don’t have the brains of human beings”. He talked
    himself into a mind-boggling rage. “These dumb black hate mongers”. Chairman Peter Booth Wiley spoke
    one language, and was especially fluent in a 2nd: racism!

     

    The hell knows why, but Chairman-hypocrite Peter Booth Wiley insists he is not a racist; the
    faux-intellectual only likes to
    stay in his own lane, race wise. “I am not one of those people” the Chairman
    slapped his knee and gurgled with laughter and sent more whisky gurgling down
    his throat. He will learn the hard lessons of the instantaneous digital world
    very soon. Chatter on the web makes outrage spread virally faster and hotter
    across this world than John
    Wiley & Sons could put a razor-wire fence around it.

     

    Advanced studies in Behavioral
    Sciences show that small changes in a man’s sex-life can have XX-large
    effects on keeping secrets. I worked for eighteen months at John Wiley &
    Sons’ San Francisco
    archive, which was interrupted by Chairman Peter Booth Wiley’s
    disgusting demonstrations of affection: his ungentlemanly hands fondled among
    my pink boxer-shorts as the predator whispered, mouth foaming, a scary “I love
    you“ into my ears. Schizophrenic? Nope, there is just not enough personality in
    Chairman Peter Booth Wiley to be a schizo!

     

    Before I edited the quotes from
    Chairman Peter Booth Wileyto
    make them ready for publication, they were a big pile of unorganized papers in
    a shoe-box containing only my hand-scribbled notes. I tried to report word by
    word what I had penciled down during the intimate ‘interviews’. I also played the devil’s advocate by brainstorming and debating
    the tongue wagging of Chairman Peter Booth Wiley; by giving satirical interpretations; by using
    the method of dramatizing and narrating. My sarcastic undertones fall under the
    protection of the First Amendment. It’s a new kind of
    investigative journalism, where obsolete rules where thrown out. I use an
    intermediate standard for publishing, since the quotes from
    Chairman Peter Booth Wiley
    do not lend themselves to firm corroboration. Should I check out my deep-throat
    with U.S.
    authorities?

                                                                                                          

    As editor I was not only participant in reconstructing
    the conversations, its perverse drama of unwanted homo-sex and the Chief’s alcoholism, but also commentator of John Wiley & Sons
    ugly history. It is an opinion-driven investigation that has an interview
    basis, in which I tried to get answers from Chairman Peter
    Booth Wiley, who lives in San
    Francisco / Amerikkka.

  3. LAUSEN Rechtsanwälte,
    München, vertreten durch Dr. Schippan, Rechtsanwalt des Verlegers John Wiley
    & Sons (VCH-Verlag GmbH, Boschstrasse 12, 69469 Weinheim, Geschäftsführer
    Bijan Ghawami) hat zum 24.02.2012 beim Landgericht Mannheim eine Einstweilige
    Verfügung (Aktenzeichen 1 O 22/12) beantragt, die mir, Dr. H.R. Götting unter
    Androhung von EUR 250.000,00 Ordnungsgeld oder von zwei Jahren Ordnungshaft
    untersagt, folgenden Text (verkürzt) Dritten zugänglich zu machen:

     

    John Wiley & Sons bricht
    Arbeitehmerdatenschutzgesetz und spioniert Beschäftigte mit unzulässigen
    Methoden aus. Der Verleger hört heimlich Gespräche der Angestellten mit.

     

    Verletzt John Wiley &
    Sons das im 4. Zusatz der US-Verfassung sowie nach deutschen und
    EU-Ddatenschutzbestimmungen garantierte Recht auf Datenschutz am Arbeitsplatz?

     

    Ja, John Wiley & Sons
    begeht Verbrechen, indem heimlich Mitarbeitergespräche am Arbeitsplatz
    mitgehört werden. Die Kultur bei John Wiley & Sons ist eine
    Giftzahn-fletschende schnüffel-schnüffel-schnüffel Kultur.

     

    Erfahren Sie die Story hinter
    der Story: Das verdeckte Operationsteam des Fachbuchverlages John Wiley &
    Sons spioniert mit Orwellschen Geheimdienstmethoden die eigenen Angestellten
    aus. Bei John Wiley & Sons regiert die Habgier, egal wie hoch die menschlichen
    Kosten sind. Zitat des Aufsichtsratsvorsitzenden Peter Booth Wiley: „Wir können
    Telefongespräche abhören, E-Mail-Nachrichten überwachen, und über einen
    Subunternehmer Bankinformationen einholen.“

    Die Unterdrücker von John
    Wiley & Sons jagen nach Dissidenten unter den Mitarbeitern im eigenen Haus.
    „Ich habe heimlich Büros durchsucht (im New Yorker Bürogebäude in den 1960ern);
    mein Daddy (W. Bradford Wiley) ließ, wenn nötig, durch ein Unternehmen
    Privathäuser überwachen.“   „Unser
    Mitarbeiter-Überwachungssystem trägt bis heute sofortige Früchte, wo wir
    inzwischen ausgereiftere Methoden verwenden“. Alle Zitate stammen vom
    Aufsichtsratsvorsitzenden Peter Booth Wiley.

     

    John Wiley & Sons
    behandelt seine nationalen und internationalen Tochterunternehmen in ausbeuterischer
    Weise. Alle Zitate stammen vom Aufsichtsratsvorsitzenden Peter Booth Wiley. „Durch
    ein amerikanisches Sicherheitsunternehmen sammeln wir Fingerabdrücke von
    Mitarbeitern im Ausland.“ „…Einzelheiten über die letzten fünf Arbeitgeber…“
    „…Die letzten drei Wohnort-Anschriften…“ „…Medizinische Aufzeichnungen,
    die auf Probleme hindeuten…“ „…Reiseziele der letzten fünf Jahre…“ „…Gemeldete
    Einkünfte und Ausgaben…“ „…Migrationshintergrund und Herkunftsland…“ „Ich
    sorge dafür, dass diese Informationen zusammengestellt werden, sobald wir ein
    neues Unternehmen kaufen.“ „…Das verletzt zwar die Datenschutzgesetze,
    verbessert aber unsere Sicherheit.“

     

    Während die Mittelschicht
    eliminiert wird, hat sich das Herz vom Aufsichtsratsvorsitzenden Peter Booth
    Wiley zum Hass gegen alle seine Mitarbeiter verhärtet.

     

    Ich komme zu dem Schluss das
    dem Verleger John Wiley & Sons und seinem Aufsichtsratsvorsitzenden Peter
    Booth Wiley nicht vertraut werden kann.

     

    Erschüttert das
    Spionagesystem von John Wiley & Sons gegen die Mitarbeiter bis in die Wurzeln,
    und entlarvt den super-bösen Aufsichtsratsvorsitzenden Peter Booth Wiley, der
    für seine Schwäche für die Flasche bekannt ist. Behandelt John Wiley & Sons
    nicht mehr mit Samthandschuhen, bestraft die Täter für diese Verbrechen.

     

    Ich habe achtzehn Monate im
    Archiv von John Wiley & Sons gearbeitet. Das Archiv war im Büro von Peter
    Booth Wiley aufbwahrt. Bevor ich die Zitate des Aufsichtsratsvorsitzenden Peter
    Booth Wiley für die Veröffentlichung bearbeitet habe, war da nur ein großer
    Haufen ungeordneter Papiere in einem Schuhkarton, der lediglich meine hin
    gekritzelten Notizen enthielt. Ich habe versucht, das, was ich während der
    ’intimen’ Interviews niedergeschrieben hatte Wort für Wort wiederzugeben. Ich
    setzte außerdem die Methoden der Dramatisierung und der satirischen
    Interpretationen ein, weil es sich bei meiner Recherche um eine neue Art von
    investigativem Journalismus handelt, bei dem überflüssige Regeln über Bord
    geworfen werden. Ich verwende einen Zwischen-Standard für die Veröffentlichung,
    da die Zitate von Peter Booth Wiley sich nicht für eine stichhaltige
    Bekräftigung eignen. Sollte ich meinen ’Deep-Thoat’-Informanten durch die
    US-Behörden prüfen lassen.

     

    Als Herausgeber war ich nicht
    nur Teilnehmer bei der Rekonstruktion der Gespräche, dem perversen Drama von
    ungewolltem Homo-Sex und dem Alkoholismus vom Aufsichtsratsvorsitzenden Peter
    Booth Wiley, sondern auch Kommentator der hässlichen Geschichte von John Wiley
    & Sons.
