I ran from Milwaukee in 1999 and I moved to Francis Street by the Nitty Gritty.
In the Fall of 2000 chalk on the sidewalk announced that Gloria Steinem was going to speak the next day at the UW's memorial courtyard.
I saw the protesters and I whispered a thought, "What has happened to Madison?"
Those eleven years in MIlwaukee I became consumed by the corruption in the Church and in the govnernment under E. Michael McCann who was a puppet for the police (no police were ever charged for killing Black people) and for the Catholic Church. (Among other things he was going to charge the Marquette male for forging love letters using Richard Roach's name because the student was angry that his male lover broke up with him) and so DiUlio reportedly said to McCann the night before according to two sources, that a case involving homosexuality would not be good for the university.) So the next day Roach reported being shocked when McCann as D.A. walked in and said their would be no charges. Teh story was different the day before.
It's just like scientology, except scientology controls the L.A. police and Hollywood.
I grew up on Madison news. I still think of John Digman's reports and how he was controlversial. Channel 3 used to be a place of truth now it is boring. I remember watching Soglin and Bill Dyke debate at 5:00 O'Clock news.
It never occured to me that Madison changed in those 11 years of visiting MIlwaukee. I never was from there, it is an ugly city.
Gloria Steinem lectured the crowd on why they should not vote for Ralph Nader. She had no respect for his work saying he only called her to ask about the dangers of high heel shoes. Actually I think that was a significant call for women.
I didn't understand that the Green Party had split off from the democrats. So the Green Party had signs.
Then, I found out in the begining of google that Gloria Steinem had worked for the C.I.A, I thought, "Oh she must have been spying on conservatives."
No, she was spying on progressives.
And she used her friendship with Katherine Graham to shut down a book that other feminists had written on her.
She took the idea from the woman user, David Letterman, the top ten reasons not to vote for Ralph Nader. It was disrespectful.
My perception thing was right about her in the early 90's at UW MIlwaukee Ken got me a ticket to hear her speak and I said to a woman, "I don't think she tended to that young woman very well."
The female student stood up and said she was a student at Marquette University and how did she manage to be a free thinker in patriarchy.
Steinem said, "Get rid of patriarchy."
Oh really my book is about taking on patriarchy and I gave her a manuscript and she listened to the lies of the FBI. So screw her moraity of convenience and I think it's hysterical that she and Bill Clinton who destroyed Monica Lewinskys life got the medal of freedom from the president on the same day.
I remember a phone call conversation with Monica that took place the month that Steinem showed. Monica said she didn't trust any politicians and she was voting for Nader in Texas. I said, "I don't think I could survive if you can't believe in any of them."
I do not believe in any of them any more.
I tested the FBI by saying Soglin's name over and over in my Francis Street apartment and I knew if she showed up some place strange they are on me.
The phone was tapped and they heard me talking to my mother that was were going to go to the NItty Gritty which was just next door at 2 pm on my birthday because it wasn't busy at that time. It was right next door.
And no one was there until Soglin walked in with a bunch of feds carrying bat irthday presents.
He enjoyed the role of catching a radical woman.
I said to Dr. Ulrich once, "They say i am radical"
He said, "What's wrong wtih being a radical?"
And then there was the time they had Soglin showing up at Sundance. He shouldn't know what I look like, I have had alders give me the look of recognition and that McDonnel, the whiner, I didn't vote for him. I don't like him.
Soglin looks at me out of the corner of his eye and he can't' believe that I don't approach him. I had said a few days before that I don't know what I would say if I saw him.
They tested it.
Monica was right. I don't believe in politicians.
The stalking has been horrible I was waiting for a bus the year 9/11 happtoened and I stood in front of the Nitty Gritty to catch my
morning bus to the department of Administration and I looked diagonally across the street to the parking lot and there in the stairwell was one of their guys watching me.
I waved and he jumped back. Clearly they put the lowest of the echelon on me.
It was the same theme it is today, "we have to find out who is telling her what?"
I knew they were on me in 1997 when they came into counseling center after Larry Hopwood refused to flunk me becuase my clients got better. They would report themselves low on the scale of 1 to 10 and by the time they left they would be higher and the other thing is that they came back to their appointments and these people struggled economically. They don't come back to appointments.
So Larry Hopwood wrote on a recommendation, "Teresa gets along with people ffrom all kinds of different backgrounds...."
They brought in the FBI when Marquette couldn't get this man to do their homophobic dirty work.
Then, Marquette had their in house attorney's dad grade my comprehensive and he flunked me. He was not even a tenured professor.
I said to him in a meeting, "I don't want you as my advisor, your son is an in house attorney for this university and that is a conflict of interesst."
Google did not exist; there was no internet that told me and he went white as a ghost.
He kept telling the professors of the department " there was no scandal"
And so I finally sent Larry Hopwood copies ofd the Roach letters that detail DiUlio and Leahy's role in persecuting an effeminate Jesuit.
And the day those professors got those letters from Hopwood I passed teh comprehensive.
And a tenured professor said to me, "There are many who think well of you in this, Teresa."
Then Jim Grummer spent years on these bogus lies about me.
Mat Gleason said it, "Terri, these people are transitory in their power, you come bakc in the end and hit them with your writing."
And so they all have gone down.
Jim Doyle who cheated himself out of a Stanford Education had to leave Stanford for the unreknowned UW Madison in the early 60's left office with a lower approval rating than Scott Walker ever had.
E. Michael McCann was delcared "A Saint No More" for bieng a puppet for the CAtholic Church and the police while fattening his retirement. https://www.milwaukeemag.com/2007/11/07/ASaintNoMore/
Their Street Thug Attorney who showed up at the Department of Administration to get me to blow and found that I laughed ih his face when he yelled at me was disbarred last year.
And finally Jim Grummer showed his pained face when after years of manipulation of getting himself to the top dog he didn't get Black Pope and you can see the pained look on his face when they all are clapping for the vibrant one from Latin America.
So, in the end Mat Gleason was right, they are transitory.
I, unlike, Gloria Steinem spying on people like Brenda Konkel and Marsha Rummel did not sell out.
Thank you, Jim Grummer for turning me into a voice . I owe you so much for that.
