JFOUND: Monteith, Joseph L. [MC1961] has an award



The Joseph L. Monteith Award

Joseph L. Monteith began his law enforcement career in June of 1961 when he was appointed to the Suffolk County Police Department shortly after receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Manhattan College. He would later (1979) receive a Master’s degree in Management from his alma mater. During the next 39 years, Joe Monteith served in every rank within the SCPD, rising to the highest uniformed rank, Chief of the Department in 1989. Recognized as a natural leader, Joe was nominated in 1975 to attend the 100th Session of the FBI National Academy. In 1995, he attended the 18th Session of the FBI’s National Executive Institute. Chief Monteith served on the Executive Board of the New York State and Eastern Canada Chapter (NYSEC) becoming Chapter President in 1990.

Later elected as the Section IV Representative to the National Board, he advanced through the Chairs, culminating with his Presidency in 1998. While not the first Associate from the New York State and Eastern Canada Chapter to hold the position of President of the National FBINAA, Joe’s term was marked by great innovation looking towards the challenges and demands of the approaching 21st Century. Suffice it to say that Chief Monteith is regarded by all of his law enforcement colleagues to be a true professional and a man of marked integrity. He has served and continues to serve on a number of boards of professional and charitable organizations. The quintessential gentleman, Chief Monteith serves as a role model for all graduates of the FBI National Academy.

JEMAIL: Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961) critiques my “job”


Dar Jasper John

It took me a “job” of five minutes to find that your quote from the “21 year old Waco girl” was a hoax.
Alfred W Evans a girl’s name??

I suggest that you do your “job” of checking the accuracy of your writings

The unchristian spirit of the quote speaks for itself

# – # – # – # – #   

[JR: So what if the quote is a “hoax”? The “unchristian spirit” of the quote is expressing a frustration with a system that doesn’t help poor people. I’ve ranted before that “Gooferment charity” aka “welfare” is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. The Grace Commission study cited that more than half of Gooferment spending is wasted. Frustration builds with the liberal socialism. Note that both the D’s and the R’s are responsible for this mess. And the deficit. LBJ’s War on Poverty has failed. And we have the “wealthiest” “poor” people in the world. I’ll do my own “charity” work. Humbly, privately, and silently. If the Gooferment would steal less from me, I could do more. And, I’m confident my fellow taxpayers would too. As far as “my job” here at Jasper Jottings. Well I think I’m doing it. This “hoax” is not the point.]

JEMAIL: Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961) forwards “refutation” story



Prominent Jesuit: Pope Francis’s first major issuance ‘almost a direct refutation’ of the GOP
By Eric W. Dolan
Thursday, April 10, 2014 9:20 EDT

*** begin quote ***

Pope Francis’s first major publication can be read as an attack on the Republican philosophy of low taxes for the wealthy and reduced support of welfare programs, according to a prominent Jesuit professor.

During a panel discussion at Georgetown University last month, American Jesuit and Boston College professor David Hollenbach was asked how the faithful should engage with the poor in light of Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium.

“I think there are multiple dimensions,” Hollenbach replied. “One of course is to find ways to help people who are members of the Church find a way to be in contact, become friends with those who are poor — an experiential dimension. That’s very important. But I don’t myself think that is going to solve the whole problem, because I don’t think it is going to be — as much as the document says it is the responsibility of every Christian to become friends with the poor, I don’t think it is actually likely to happen very much, or at least to happen as much as it’s needed.”

[JR: Well, when I was in Catholic school, we were taught that the Pope’s infallibility was limited to faith and morals. In the realm of economics, he’s just another “sinner”. Unfortunately, I don’t like the R’s any more than the D’s. It’s been demonstrated that “private charity” is more moral, effective, and efficient than any Gooferment program. The best example is LBJ’s famous “war” on “poverty” which has ruined the Black community and created generations of (white and black) poverty “farmers”. I’m writing my check to the Federal and State thieves this week. If my taxes were lower, I could and would donate more. Not to mention that I donate to charities that don’t “qualify” for tax breaks. I’d assert that the Gooferment is like a junkie and more money just makes bigger problems. For example, Obamacare spending hundreds of millions to enroll arguably a few million. We’d have been better off to send each uninsured a check to buy insurance. But that wouldn’t have enriched the politicians, bureaucrats, and crony capitalists. Sorry but that Papal “refutation” makes me crazy.]

JEMAIL: Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961) thinks highly of President Obama


Dear Jasper John,

Your response below is a strong indication that facts can not change your mind or
even open your mind to change.  Facts showing President Obama was inspired
by Catholic teachings are not even considered.

I worked on the Catholic Campaign for Human Development in the 1970;s and found
it to be a program that inspired me to help  other people- the people involved
has nothing to gain personally and “opportunist” was the last word I would use to describe them.
President Obama as the well being of all Americans as his goal- far more so that any
Republican, Conservative  or Libertarian

Sincerely yours,
Donald M Stebbins

[JR: I only change my mind based on facts. In any case, I don’t think BHO44 is even in the second tier of “bad" Presidents. As far as what he has in his mind, I don’t know. I can say that his actions are evidence of the same old “crony capitalism” with a tremendous hubris of his world view. I’d assert that Libertarians are very charitable and want everyone to have the same freedom that they wish for themselves. By the way, the Obamas have done very well for themselves while in the White House. As do most Presidents. That, per se, speaks volumes.]

[JR: Jasper Stebbins forwarded, without comment or explanation, a long NY Times article about BHO44 and his activities involving the Catholic Church. Interesting that it’s a puff piece, but, when I read it, I saw him as an opportunist. Maybe if they had published this BEFORE he was elected, or any serious investigation of his candidacy, the Sheeple would have asked more questions. I still don’t know where he was born, what the circumstances of his SSN, and why is his Colombia admission papers hidden? Did he claim to be a foreign citizen to get in and at a reduced rate? Why is it hidden? All this article does is raise old and new questions for me.]

JEMAIL: Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961) finds a fairer filter for the Pope’s words

Dear Jasper John,

Following below are a pertinent cartoon and article “filtered” by the Wall Street Journal.
The NYT article was completely truthful in its transmission of the Pope’s manifesto.
I find that Pope agrees with my economic philosophy in virtually every way.

Sincerely yours,
Donald M Stebbins
BS 1961

Permit me to quote from your cited article:

“Benedict seemed to aim his critique at state and market alike, whereas Francis seems to move the ball considerably in the direction of the idea that the market has far more power—the power to do good for humanity as well as to dehumanize—than the state,” said Chad Pecknold, assistant professor of theology at the Catholic University of America in Washington.”

I’d suggest that we as a society of individuals can do more. And, that the State (aka the King) hurts everyone especially the poor. And, the market isn’t free (quoting JFK) “a rising tide raises all boats”.

Perhaps that’s worth considering?

We’ll see how the words translate into actions by the faithful and others.

If the Gooferment was less of a “participant” and more of a “referee”, then we’d be better off. All too often, we see it as immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. I saw first hand how Gooferment “welfare” in NJ trapped people inextricably in poverty. And the politicians and bureaucrats were perfectly happy to have a “plantation” full of Clients to justify their efforts. Homefront NJ was actively opposed and interfered with as they gave those people “a ladder” to climb out. Just handing out “benefits” does not get them out of “poverty”.

JEMAIL: Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961) uses the NYT to interpret the Pope’s words


Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961) 



# – # – #  

[JR: Jasper Stebbins allows the NYT to filter Pope Francis’ words. Personally, I can’t believe that he’s so naïve to think that politicians and bureaucrats are the solution. I’d have rather him criticize the politicians and bureaucrats. Along with the “crony capitalism”, that makes us all poor. The NYT reads into it all sorts of things. I read it as needing a “fairer system”. And, I’d agree. For example, “honest money” would stop hidden taxation on the non-rich. For example, the elimination of “minimum wages” would end unemployment; especially, youth and minority. For example, elimination of Gooferment welfare would stop trapping human beings in the hopeless cycle of “welfare families” on the Gooferment version of the “modern plantation”. Americans are very charitable. Unfortunately, the Gooferment isn’t.]

[JR: Hope everyone remembers the poor, the old, and the lonely on Thanksgiving. If you can’t find a charity you like, ask Flynn, Bro. Gregory (MC1957) ]
