More than 500 citizens attend College of DuPage meeting –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On January 29, 2015

College of DuPage – (ECWd) –

After Judge Wheaton issued a temporary restraining order (here) to the College of DuPage ordering them to hold the January 28, 2015 meeting in a larger space, the College and our attorney agreed on the area adjacent to the usual, small, “30 seat” board room. The College went to work and set up approximately 350 chairs for the public who planned on attending the meeting.

When we arrived, the perceived magnitude of the area with those chairs was a little overwhelming, and I thought the college may have gone a little overboard in their preparation. The exact opposite happened, the public came out in force, with numbers exceeding 500. All seats were filled, with standing room only along both sides, the back, and both sides of the balcony. It was an amazing sight to see.

More than 60 people from all walks of life addressed the board, and one speaker hit the nail on the head when he said the board had accomplished one good thing, and that good thing was to unite people of varying backgrounds, and united those people in total opposition of the board.
The first set of pictures is the original meetings room with the “30” seats, around half of those reserved for COD at each meeting – and the College says this is “accommodating” and allows the public to “attend” the meetings. Below these are pictures from the area the college was ordered to hold their meetings in. I think you can spot the difference.


Let’s just say that Judge Wheaton was spot on with her order!

    Congratulations John and Kirk along with the rest of your group,you guys have shown just what a board unchecked can do with tax money.Everyone in that room challenging the COD board should be of themselves for carrying out their civic duty.Maybe some of that will spill over to the Arcola Township and one of their board meetings.

    WOW! Sure wish I could have been one of the 500 people that showed up for that meeting. The board members in one of the pictures looked a bit “intimidated” by We the People!!!! So darn proud of you and John. Keep up the good work, guys!!!!

    Excellent work as usual. The press can’t even mention your names because they are so controlled and quite honestly..quite intimidated by your work gentlemen. As for this rogue board, the only thing left is for them to resign so honest people can fill the vacancies. Another one bites the dust as they say.

      Expecting anytime the “rats” to begin deserting the sinking ship.

      I’d put my money on Trustee Svoboda. She phoned in her vote due to a family emergency, so she couldn’t see the droves of angry taxpayers. She seems to be basically a nice person who got in over her head amidst the rampant corruption on the Board. She might not want to suffer the verbal abuse while campaigning to retain her seat. It would be easy for her to simply withdraw from the race and depart quietly in April.

        wishful thinking there screechooo. Remember these people generally thrive on power over others. I have major doubts that basically nice counts for anything when they sit in those seats.

    Wasn’t it this board that called you guys Nazis? Hm-mm-mm…I’m thinking this, in psychological terms, is what we commonly call projection. Hopefully these sleeze-bags at the board table will get the hint and get the heck out of here so the college can move ahead.

    I hope all of you fine folks will consider contributing some real dollars to Kirk and John to help them continue their efforts. This kind of result is costly. Time is spent, resources used and so forth. If you commend them with your words, also consider doing so with your wallets in a generous way.

    This is a fine example of We the People doing their civic duty as good citizens that undoubtedly will inspire others in doing the same across OUR State of Illinois. The hard work that went on behind the scenes and the countless hours of time involved by non profit organizations like yours John Kraft and Kirk Allen at with no personal compenstion to yourselves should be commended obviously and has personally inspired me and many more like me to be more active in our community in Coles County Illinois in board meetings and local government/politics. This is what happens when We the People UNITE TOGETHER against public corruption and the obvious criminal activities of our public servants. I still hope you pursue criminal charges against those people responsible for these CRIMES. And also SUE them in civil lawsuits as well. Hit them where it counts. In their wallets. Please. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Keep pushing back, this battle is not over, it’s just beginning in the fight against public corruption in our State of Illinois. Get MORE informed. Get MORE involved. Take action.

    Be willing to take mitigated risks and even life threatening risks if required to defend those who can defend their own FREEDOM and LIBERTY and security for whatever reasons. Ultimately that unselfish helping of others who can’t or won’t defend themselves will secure your own FREEDOM AND LIBERTY AND SECURITY. These type of public servants operate with impunity obviously in the light of day with no consequences for the most part. If enough people unite together against them they will be forced to resign, retire or be prosecuted for their crimes or all three hopefully I pray. I give credit to Jesus Christ as well, I’m positive alot prayers were answered. May God Bless We the People who unite together against TYRANNY and FASCISM that if left unchecked will eventually collapse our government agencies and our country in the end as those in the secret societies who hide in the shadows have planned for hundreds of years in advance to usher in the one world government they want and world domination with evil intentions inspired by Lucifer (Satan) not Jesus Christ. The ends don’t justify the means obviously.

    Resistance is key, not a revolution…but resistance. Organized resistance to the status quo. We have the tools within our Constitution of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA to win this battle if we get use those tools effectively and get informed and involved and quit being apathetic citizens and distracted by selfish desires. Instead of being distracted by the Superbowl this year, use your that valuable time of yours to get informed. Do more research and ask more questions. Then share that information with your own friends and family and those within your social networks online. Blog more. Share MORE. Care MORE. Please.

    Open source intelligence is vital to our survival as a society in making informed decisions in our lives and having free will to make informed CHOICES and is what the secret societies fear the most, We the People United against them. DEMAND ELECTORAL REFORM AND GOVERNMENT TRANSPARENCY. THEN VOTE REGULARLY LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT, because in reality IT DOES OBVIOUSLY. End the status quo. Vote the bad apples out, and replace them with honest caring independent thinking people you trust. Please.

    Be creative in your solutions to all OUR problems. Please. It take us all to be united and involved to win this battle of the hearts, minds and souls surrounding us all in our community and throughout OUR world.

    Moments like this night inspire me tremendously that We the People can make a positive difference in our community and throughout OUR world IF we UNITE TOGETHER.

    Thanks goes to everyone involved in this. I will continue to pray for you all. God Bless America and all the people throughout OUR world we share together, not separate. Separation from each other and God is the real enemy NOT these manufactured so called “terrorist” and false flag staged events that is designed methodically to create fear and separation from each other. You have nothing to fear, but fear itself a wise man once said. Remember that?

    Everything happens for a reason, there are no coincidences. I am a firm believer in that the older and wiser I get. I truly have faith and believe everything is going to be fine and We the People can overcome any problem WE face together united in our struggle though this journey through life.

    Enjoy life more…and quit worrying so much. Smile. Life is a beautiful and fantastic thing if you choose it to be. We become what we think about the most. What are you thinking about today?

    Interesting that the front table where these creeps sit is blocked off by cordon line and tables, almost like they are judges behind the bar. Or are they afraid of the public now that the cat’s out of the bag? Just sayin’ . . .

      Yes – they use this opportunity to paint themselves as victims of ridicule, and even go so far as to providing police escort to the board members now to somehow try and prove they are victims and need protection. Just an old page from a failed play book.

    The February 4 Courier just came out. There were several stories regarding the Breuder severance package and the most recent special board meeting. Except for one rogue LTE, the tone of the issue is that the mean old taxpayers are once again attacking their beloved President. Hardly surprising given that Breuder is the de factor editor-in-chief having removed the advisor to the Courier some years when the Courier still reported news.

    Perhaps, the next COD president can restore journalism to its rightful place at COD.
