02/19/2019 06:40 – I (Prof. Erickson) have been “Unlawfully Terminated” (in my opinion ;-)) from NULL as of 16:28 February 15, 2019.
I have been told not to be in contact with any students, staff, or faculty, by NULL “administrators,” who have a hard time writing a “termination letter” that makes any sense (e.g. forgetting to include a critical word in the first sentence of what was intended to be an “intimidating” letter).
Hell, the NULL idiots even got the Wheeling, Illinois Police Department involved. I kid you not. Yesterday, Officer Thomas Pinedo of the Wheeling Police Department’s Special Operations Unit visited my home (and called me). I wasn’t home at the time, and early this morning I wrote a very polite e-mail promising I won’t go anywhere near NULL, and stay away from the territory of Wheeling, IL.
Needless to say, I am not intimidated, and I will be suing National Louis University, and several specific individuals.
About your materials, um… NULL is not paying me any longer, so I will not be scanning your materials, but rather have to put all of your materials in a box, and mail them to someone at NULL. More later when the NULL idiots give me some clear instructions how to proceed.
p.s. NULL personnel may be slandering and libeling me, so any evidence of “slander and libel” that anyone wants to send me, well, send it. I need clear cut evidence. Perhaps NULL personnel may have even filed false police reports, which is a felony (3 years) in the State of Illinois.
02/18/2019 Morning Instructions and Return of Scanned Copies of Students’ Written Work.
Good morning History 102 Monday and Wednesday students.
Yeah, I know it is very weird (2 me) that I have been terminated, but hey, I’ve gone through similar things before (like when I was a teenage dish washer, and as I was leaving Roosevelt in 2012 – I was sick of working there, and they knew it – , but I remember what to do – 😉 ).
So, what is done, is simply done.
Now to clean up the mess and make sure no students are affected negatively by this “situation.”
- All attendance has been recorded and entered by me, via D2L, and included your attendance for both Monday and Wednesday last week.
- I will be scanning and can send to students copies of “any and all” written work done in class, including “Analytical Cell” sheets.
- About “Milestones 1 and 2.”
- I was planning on grading all Milestone 1s Friday and Saturday, but someone (avoiding anger and sarcasm here) cut me off of all NLU systems starting Friday (02/15) at about 4:30/16:30 and final cut off of e-mail was 6pm/18:00.
- Milestone 2: The entire Monday and Wednesday classes were run according to a Socratic model, so any subject we discussed is a potential topic for you to write about. If I had had access I would have instructed you to “write up” Milestone 2, as a preparation for a “Socratic debate” and we were to have some more formal Socractic debates at the beginning of both classes this week. But that is not going to happen.
So… check back here for more updates.
Stay warm, safe, and be very careful driving to campus as the weather continues to mostly suck (unless you snowboard, like me, and I like snow, just not f’n driving in it).
02/17/2019 Emergency Transmit and Warning to HIS 102 – D2L/Brightspace/Ellucian is an IoT Matrix Trap – Don’t Participate RESIST YOUR FASCIST NULL/NLU SUPERVISING PROFESSORS (the Adjuncts and Coaches might be ok (I really have no idea), or scared to death – cuz lots of money to be stolen by selling bullshit AI LMSs – Learning Management Systems – to a bunch of GenXers/BrainDeadMillenials that never learned about computerz – I fucking did! – so help them RESIST! And demand a tuition refund)!
Yeah… I had some fun on Saturday… binge watched “Deutschland 1986” on Hulu, took a nap. AND THEN TOOK REVENGE! 😉
So HIS 102 M/W, I really do not know what unfortunate soul will be placed in our class (“our” cuz… like comrades in the “long march through the institutions” ;-)), but be kind to them, unless they are the alleged “professors” Vistain or Caver, then be as disobedient and disruptive as possible, perhaps “riotous,” demand answers!!!
D2L/Brightspace/Ellucian… corporate IoT (Internet of Thingz) fucking trap. They are watching, and stealing, and selling your data. And NLU “leadership,” and “soon to be fired” temporary Chair of some random fucked up department “Insane in the Membrane” Vistain, are all complicit, in selling your minds’ “work produkt.”
Check back later for more updates as this NULL/NLU story continues.
And yes Comrades I have been “Sent to Destroy” by the RF_GRU Memetik Spetznatz Division 666…
OUT – END TRANSMIT
02/16/2019 Emergency Final Transmit to HIS 102 Monday and Wednesday.
Prof. Erickson’s/Erxn’s statement on his illegal and unconstitutional firing from National Louis University/Undergraduate College, Wheeling/Chicago, IL.
Right before the illegal and unconstitutional denial of access to all NLU webspace (including e-mail, D2L, Banner), I sent the following transmission to several students in my Wednesday class.
I actually was cut off in the middle of communicating with both of my classes, seriously, like I was trying to post an announcement to both courses and “someone pulled the plug.”
I no longer have access to class lists… and this happened very quickly.
You are all in my Wednesday class, please inform students in my Monday class, but you are not obligated to.
My generic “announcement” about my termination has been attached.
My National Louis University e-mail will be cut off soon… but all of the cc e-mails will continue to work.
My webpage will continue to function… so students (former students) can reach me easily: https://christianerickson.org.
I am sorry about this, please tell as many students as you can.
Or not, it is up to you.
Down with Big Brother.
Well, apparently as of about 16:28 (4:28pm), Friday, February 15th, 2019, my employment was terminated with NLU.
I have no idea.
So… for further information contact: Valerie Vistain, soon to be fired Chair of some department, or… perhaps also soon to be fired “Martin” Christopher Caver (course “owner” for all HIS 102 classes).
Been nice getting to know you.
Apparently “Big Brother” really was watching.
Stay warm and safe.
Chris aka Dr./Prof. Erickson (Erxn).”
Well classes, that’s it (for now).
On the anticipated advice from my legal counsel, this is the first, last, and only statement I will make. Until I appear in depositions, negotiations, and perhaps most enjoyable, before a jury, judge, and given the gravity of things, a visit to the United States Supreme Court (Washington, DC is a wonderful city, despite the corruption and depravity of the SOG, Seat of Government).
Legal response will be rapid, total, and merciless.
Many FOIA’s will be filed. I am a non-public person, so Libel and Slander laws will ideally shut up any and all NLU employees and students about me. Or, even more legal hilarity will ensue.
In my estimation National Louis University’s use of D2L and Zoom as a student, faculty, and staff “workplace surveillance system” will be found to be in total violation of the legal codes and constitutions of the State of Illinois, and the United States of America.
There will be profound legal consequences for all involved parties who are foolish enough to remain associated (employed by, or enrolled in) with NULL, oh I mean MLK, whoops, I mean NLU.
