Fairhope Seal

Instead of a lot of links and dialog, this Freaky Friday is going to feature a portion of lasts nights Fairhope City Council Meeting:

The City Attorney is appointed by the City Council as is the Municipal Judge. Replace the Council and you can reappoint a new City Attorney and Municipal Judge, that are not CATALYST.

The McSharry case is corruption staring you in the face. Ask yourself what if this was your daughter, sister, mother or friend that was assaulted?

The City Attorney, failed, numerous times, in error or purpose, to defend the victim.

He should be fired. The city will be lucky if they are not sued for the way this case has been handled.

After the bully council is lectured about their treatment of women, Councilman Boone, aka llc. Boone, starts yelling at the Mayor and demanding Councilman Burrell immediately adjourn the meeting, which he did. Burrell cut off the Mayor’s comments after he had just pledged to her “she would be given the opportunity to speak.”

I hope every woman in Baldwin County sees this video. This is CATALYST and what they stand for, THEMSELVES. Men that treat women like this are not men, but cowards.

You can go to The Ripp Report and research past posts related to this case and CATALYST.

You can also catch our Backstory Podcast, where we discuss this case as well as other issues.

    More made up crap from the REMFSTER himself. Mayor is a disgrace. She showed her backside once again. Rude, arrogant and incapable of being a leader. Can’t keep good employees, not even her drinking buddies on staff. Time for Krazy Kross eyed Karin to go the way of the dinosaurs.

      How was she being rude? All I could see was the attorney talk down to her and cutting her off

        You are in idiot and did not watch her BS

        • Anonymous | May 31, 2020 at 9:37 pm |

          I I watched the video. I saw where the attorney was condescending to the Mayor and how Burrell would not let the Mayor speak
          Keep it up, Burrell, we are not voting go for you

        Obviously you are a cat loving Karen.

          No I am not a Karin lover. It is just I DESPISE Catalyst and what it has done to Baldwin County
          It is high time Catalyst be exposed for what it is

      Typical Catalyst shill you are
      Must be so bad that they have to stop the meeting so they can run home
      Ha ha

      Why don’t you run for Mayor then? I am sure Catalyst would love to take you on

      • Anonymous | June 1, 2020 at 8:22 pm |

        Don’t need to run for Mayor. Karin will be elected again and Catalyst will be flushed into the overburdened sewers that they have neglected to maintain and and up with the rest of the [email protected] in the bay. Great end for it
        Ha ha Catalyst, We are really pushing your corrupt buttons

    One of the Council guys told the mayor”nobody believes you”. About sums it up for her one term administration. Her lies about the police department money she misapprehended for her spy operation, her assault of an employee, lies about other long term employees, intentional fraud against Lakewood Country Club …it is a pattern with her. She almost bankrupted her own grandmother’s business and her time as mayor has been a disaster. Fairhope deserves better than this crazy idiot in her office.

    The Mayor is a joke. She needs to go.

    She is a complete batch. Can’t wait until elections get here.

      So a strong woman to you is a “batch.” What do you call a bully man? A catalyst?
      Ha ha ha. She is really getting to you

      • Karin the Karen | May 31, 2020 at 5:33 am |

        Settle down Karen … grab another glass of blush wine.

          Yeah Karin, grab another blush wine while the fat cat Catalysts grab another drink at McSharry’s
          I see election season and the Catalyst trolls are in high gear

    • Anonymous | May 30, 2020 at 10:26 pm |

      I can’t wait for the election either. To see the council go

    TRUMP 2020!!!!!!

    • We got a wall, got to say racist stuff again and orange man bad a lot. What else … what else did we get again I forget? 4 more years, then it will be great again I think.

    • ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? | May 31, 2020 at 6:23 pm |

      That sure was fun, we totally showed those black people. Denouncing nazis at your supporters rallies would’ve been so lame. So glad nobody did that.


      But I’m not worried. Those badasses with guns that were out protesting are ready for AnYtHiNg! They’re not just pussies intimidating people, they are pulling in right now and putting some order in the streets! Any minute now. I bet they have some badass haircuts.

      • Anonymous | June 1, 2020 at 2:45 pm |

        Oh stop trying to troll this website, Catalyst operative. The purpose of this website is to expose Baldwin County politics and not national
        But if you want to go there, I will take you
        Catalyst has denied district voting in Fairhope to consolidate their power base. This has kept minorities off the council. What’s more, Catalyst has refused to annex south Of Fairhope to keep minorities out. The Catalyst council went out east of town to purchase a field instead of purchasing a parcel
        In the Twin Beech area which is minorities
        What’s more these minorities consist of old Fairhope families that have lived here for generations unlike the newly moved in carpet baggers who have become a part of Catalyst
        See? Catalyst is racist as well as corrupt
        You wanted race brought in this? Well there you have it.

    Ok Ripp…pretty hypocritical of u to even mention how women are treated when all u could do was obsess over a former female city employee’s alleged (by u) boob job.

  8. Wow looks like the propagandist for catalyst (paid now that it is political season) have shown their ugly, sore-ridden heads.

    Let the games begin.

    Clean Sweep.

    Every council man replaced.

    • Anonymously Submitted | May 29, 2020 at 8:36 pm |

      Ripp actually created Burrell, instrumental in getting him elected via his personal clean sweep campaign because he wasn’t pleased with mayor kant or the council at the time, especially Debbie Quinn. He went after all of them and helped put this gang of 5 in charge. He tries but won’t listen to anyone on probable ramifications of his actions. He won’t listen to anything he doesn’t want to hear, politically speaking. He is starstruck with Karin, whom he helped finally replace Kant and worships the quicksand she and her top advisor Mosher walk on. He won’t get it thru his thick well meaning head and heart he is simply being used by both of them because he has to have something to believe in. Ripp is a decent guy outside of the politics. Does a great deal for many groups especially vets..himself being Vietnam vet.

      • Anonymous | June 1, 2020 at 2:49 pm |

        Well get your own website and go to the council meetings and stand up to the bullies. I doubt that you have that strong of a backbone
        Ripp is one man standing up to five councilmen, attorney, and judge. He looks them right in the eye and speaks his mind without fear. This is courage in my book

  9. Francis Ripp | May 30, 2020 at 6:58 am |

    ROCK CREEK you need a representative to run for city council, peferable against Burrell.

  10. NOT VOTING FOR YOU | May 30, 2020 at 7:34 am |

    Once again the Fairhope city council has shown their ass. The lame lawyer believes he is so superior. He can explain it, but we’re incapable of understanding it. Not surprising that when their actions are questioned…MEETING ADJOURNED! (and they all agree)

  11. Boone flipped iut after you mentioned the straw man series. Is he implicated in some way? His son? He ran out of the chamber.

    The council had stopped public participation because of covid 19.

    First time back they shut down so as not to discuss?

    Corrupt. Big time corruption.
    Thank you.
    Mister Ripp we as citizens have our marching orders now because of your efforts.

    Karin is such a Karen!

    • Anonymous | May 30, 2020 at 4:36 pm |

      Once again double standard
      Weak men would love for a woman to back down
      Notice how she can stand up to all those Catalysts until Boone has to cancel the meeting?
      These guys are weak all of them

  13. When are you going to start writing about other incidents at the bars? Continued drug transactions at L.W.C.C. (mind you all you have to do is sit in the establishment and observe). No to mention the ongoing issues with arrests there in general. How about the girl that was raped outside of PLOW. Maybe even write about the sexual allegations against Nall by a young man. Perhaps that doesn’t serve your own personal brand of catalyst. McSharry is by no means of a saint, but he isn’t the only ugly thing to write about. You also have the mayor’s sister and nephews. Big time marijuana users. Hopefully you eventually start being fair and balanced. FYI: I wish the public would call on Denardi to pass a drug test. Huge addict! Also, there’s no proof she had a concussion. But she won’t release medical records.

    FYI: The redundancy of the Jack Burrell burger. That menu item is at Bone & Barrel.

    After hearing the attorney talk down to the Mayor and Boone getting in a snit, I see that this council is a bunch of bullies

  15. All we need is popcorn and to sell tickets. also clown costumes for all.

  16. Look it up! | May 30, 2020 at 7:26 pm |

    Karen is a prejorative term for a person perceived to be entitled or demanding beyond the scope of what is considered appropriate or necessary. A common stereotype is that of a white American middle-aged woman who displays aggressive behavior when prevented from getting her way; such women are often depicted as demanding to “speak to the manager”, and of having a particular bob cut hairstyle.

  17. Ron Dorsey | May 30, 2020 at 9:42 pm |

    Mr. Boone runs a run down trailer park. He is no good. Like all of them council. Disrespecting women is ugly.

    • Disrespecting women is indeed ugly- just as ugly as his trailer park
      Every trailer has a built in attachment making it a LUXURY TRAILER PARK

      • Anonymous | June 1, 2020 at 2:53 pm |

        Luxuriously appointed trailer park. Where the roads are potholes and the trailers scream for a paint job
        This is why it is called Winter Haven.
        Your trailer with add on await you…..

  18. Hey Catalyst haters! We Catalysts are stronger than ever! Watch Hightower beat Carl and y’all will know we are now at the FEDERAL level! I am one of the few Catalysts that will be proud to admit we exist.
    There is too much money to be made on the real estate here in Baldwin County. If you tree huggers want to keep it then buy it!


    • Anonymous | June 1, 2020 at 2:35 pm |

      See? You Catalysts don’t have the “Baldwin Insider” anymore. Notice how Ripp will allow comments but when Chuckie and Sullivan were writing for the Baldwin Insider they disabled comments because they did not want to – and afraid of – facts disputing their propaganda
      Actually, the Baldwin Insider should have been called the Baldwin OUTSIDER because outside developers were buying the politicians

    • Anonymous | June 1, 2020 at 2:37 pm |

      I so hope you are right, Ripp
      I like Carl and I do not like cocky Hightower
      What’s more another defeat for Catalyst will further expose this evil outfit and warm other political candidates to stay away from Catalyst

    • Anonymous | June 1, 2020 at 8:04 pm |

      Hey Catalyst! How does it feel to know that the voters are becoming aware of you and the candidates that you run for office?
      Your brand is becoming a liability to the candidates
      So how are you going to hide your tracks this election?
      Change your name? Withhold taking payments from your candidate clients?
      We will be watching you and who your money people pay off
      We are now on the offense!

    Boone needs to control his CHIMP!!
    A woman will run against this dinosaur.

    Omg!! Just saw this ugly and embarrassing video of “our city council” at work. Adjourning a city council meeting because they didn’t want the elected Mayor to speak!! Actually this speaks volumes!!!!! Get rid of this bunch…

  23. When are the council going to announce?
    Not one of these mice have stepped up to the plate.
    They gonna swing and miss big time if they do!!!!

    • Anonymous | June 3, 2020 at 3:35 pm |

      they will not need to run. Catalyst will make sure these guys get back in. Just watch. Catalyst is a smart group. They know how to manipulate elections. last election in Fairhope they put just ONE election booth out in the parking lot to poll whether or not to go to district voting. Catalyst insured that the people would not vote.
      In Daphne, they shut down voting precincts in minority neighborhoods to keep the minority voters from voting.
      Catalyst is S M A R T. Don’t just trust elections – these guys can change the rules
