Today in Council

Note to Jim Hahn regarding campaign strategy.

Jim, when your opponent wants to bring up a subject that you don't want to be brought up, or if your opponent uses maneuvers in Council to highlight a sensitive subject. Sometimes, and only sometimes it's best to roll-over and pretend your opponent is wasting their time and whatever tactic your opponent is trying doesn't faze you.

Wonder why this strategy works? Simple, it doesn't give the media any story to cover, there is no clash to cover, just some arcane council maneuvering that no voter would understand.

Instead you have your council colleagues fight a Prop. 5 maneuver.

Dumb, very dumb. Some (MEAT) might even call you a dun-dum for it.

Today in council Tony Villar supporters tried to Prop 5 the airport concession contracts over the Airport Commission.

The vote was 6-5, they needed 8 votes for Prop 5 to kick in.

The 5 councilpeople against invoking Prop 5 were all Jim Hahn supporters. Made something that would not have been covered, covered.

I fully expect the LA Times and Daily News to cover this non-story story, which was only turned into a story because of Hahn supporters. Which means tomorrow Angelinos are going to wake up right into another Pay to Play story, nicely fitting in Tony Villar's strategy.

I want a battle -- not a stomping.

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH UPDATE.

Right now I have found over 84 neighborhood watches, i need to know how many were in the district before Tony Villar became a Councilmember.

I am finding most of the Neighborhood watches by calling Hollenbeck and Northeast pretending to live in different neighborhoods, it's working. I don't want to call the Villaraistas mainly because i think they will feed me biased info.

Please e-mail the chief.

Debate note: This sunday at the Museum of Tolerance - The Chief will be watching. The Chief will be in attendance.

Three were enough for Bush and Kerry, I think three are enough for Villaraigosa and Hahn.

The thing is, there were @ forty in the primary. Antonio was at every single one.

Hahn was at six(6) SIX.

Question: How many people will be watching this debate on T.V.?

Answer: Not as many as attend it live.

This is a non-event unless Villaraigosa steps on his dick.

I suspect we may hear about Stem Cells, myself.

I also suspect we may NOT hear about neighborhood watches or museums, or dog parks, or CD 14.

They know that their potholes are not being fixed and their taxes are too high and the traffic sucks.

Read the polls, Jimmy, and save yourself the embarrassment.

Chief, what if Jimmy had done nothing and the Prop 5 had succeeded?

Then the action of the Airport Commission would have been invalidated and the Council would have to re-do the issue.

As a supporter of Antonio, I have to still be honest; that would have been a bigger story and defeated Hahn's move to line the pockets of the three supporters he has left in the entire City of LA.

From an impartial view, I really think Hahn did it right this time. (Of course, Hahn was probably home sleeping while someone else did the strategy; maybe Carrick came to oouncil)

Wow, this is so exciting. Yahn is still racking up the big time endorsements. We are just getting so close to putting a nail in AV's coffin. Rick Orlov reports:

Hahn, fighting an uphill battle against Villaraigosa in their May 17 runoff election, received the endorsement from Robert H. Philibosian, a Tarzana Republican who served as the county's top prosecutor from his appointment in 1983 until his loss to Democrat Ira Reiner in 1984.

If MEAT is afraid for the safety like he says of these people just list the DATE when the neighborhood watches started and the Senior Lead Officer who attends. That way everybody is safe and it will be the truth. We are organizing a meeting about this very subject in CD14 to expose Antonio's LIE.

The debate will be Hahn on his crime record and bringing in Bratton. Hahn should also slam Antonio for supporting gangs. ADV will say Hahn hasn't hired more officers. DO YOUR HOMEWORK IDIOT. Hahn in his 2003-2004 budget had money for an additional 320 officers but those losers on city council voted it down. So blame them.

I can't wait for the debate; how will Jimmy get around the Stem Cell Fiasco? It appears he put Renata in charge AND SHE JUST BLEW IT, PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

How do you just miss basic requirements? Easy, just be young, arrogant, and over your head.

The thing is, it is typical of what happens around there with inexperienced young Deputy Mayors running around woith their heads up their butt. Troy Edwards is another good example.

This Stem Cell thing looks like it was served up just for this debate. It is like icing on the cake.

Antonio will play it safe tomorrow night; Jimmy is desperate and will be rolling the dice on the scare, Mexican scourge, dope dealer stuff.

It is Antonio's to lose now, and he should be dignified, but call Jimmy if he starts in on the trust or scare crap.

Renata may have blown it on this one, after all, don't all public employees get ten or more chances, unlike the private sector. But you know who else blew it? Jimmy Blackman, Tony's right hand man. Not only has he made a farce out of a previously effective council office, Jimmy was driving the car when he and Tony pulled up to Vignali's shop on Figueroa. MEAT previously stated that it was Mike Hernandez. Well you're right MEAT, Hernandez did take his car to Vignali also, and the LAPD was tailing him at the time. But Tony also took his car there, I can't believe Parke or Tony have you this much in the dark. Tony and Mike have very distinctive voices on tape. There is no mistaking it plus there is video to back up the sound recordings. But even you, MEAT, must have known that Hahn has an "ace" up his sleeve. Tony has too much of a shaky past and too much of a big mouth - ever wonder why he's always getting busted with other women? Parke knows this about Tony, that's why he can't sleep at night.

Haven't you heard, Art Snyder is on Tony's team. They have a lot in common. Establishing their positions in accordance with campaign contributions; ignoring their constituents then placating them around election time; running around every bar in town - or party house as in Tony's case; and they both have a rap sheet for child abuse. Although Art was accused of sexual abuse, Tony was only accused of physical abuse on his daughter, Priscilla - there's a record on file.

Art Snyder runs with the same crowd as Ricahrd Alatorre, Mike Hernandez, Richard Polanco, Ron Martinez, and, of course, Horatio Vignali, guess who supplied those party houses?

Me, I'll take the womanizer party guy, who can make the economic engine hum over the pious, quiet nice guy, who lets his Commissioners and contributors walk away with the City Treasury and approve deals for the City that costs hundreds of millions, or billions of dollars?

What does anyone think causes higher taxes? We have $500 million more than four years ago, and we have the same amount of employees. But, they are making a whole lot more money, each of them. Just ask Julie Butcher, Miguel Contreras and Maria Elena Durazo. They LOVE Jimmy!

Sure Renata is too busy because others have left(great excuse to blow three billion of income to LA); only the smart ones like Matt Middlebrook left voluntarily, the others had to be fired and they couldn't get anyone else that was even semi-competent to take these jobs that lead straight to the jails at either Bauchet Street or Terminal Island.

The resumes are flying out of Room 300 at warp speed now. Even those young dopes can read polls. The only ones who can't are the CD 14ers who are sure that Antonio is going down because everyone they talk to is voting against him.

A couple days ago you said you'd found 40-50 watches using local papers. Someone called your bluff, looked through ALL the latest local papers and found TWO (yes, 2) both old, established neighborhood watches.

They said, Call the SLOs, they will tell you how many there are.

SO, NOW you change your story and say you HAVE contacted the LAPD, anonymously (convenient to cover a lie), and have TWICE as many.

84 WATCHES in a district with LESS THAN 20 DISTINCT neighbrohoods?

HOW DO YOU SLEEP at night? (OH, that's right ADV supporters take drugs so they CAN sleep).

BUT, you must have been up all night calling the LAPD 85 times asking for neighborhood watches in 85 locations.

(No wonder there are no cops on the street they're all answeing fake questions from fake bloggers about fake neighborhood watches.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA how long it would take to get that much information from the LAPD with fake phone calls?

Do you know they spend most of their time answering REAL questions and responding to REAL crimes.

I just e-mailed my SLO... he said NO ONE has called Hollenbeck asking about neighborhood watches in more than a week, and it would show on the daily activity sheet for the people taking calls!

We can make it even EASIER, Parker.

Just give some RAW numbers.. . how many neighborhood watches in each community in CD 14.

Here's a partial list:

Boyle Heights
El Sereno
Highland Park (Northern one-third)
Eagle Rock
Mt. Wash.
Monterey Hills/Hermon

That covers about 85-90 percent of the district.

How many watches have you found in each (careful because not ALL of either Hollenbeck or NE division is in CD14).

Then we can each check with our OWN SLO and see if there really are 5, 6, 12, 20 in our own community. We'll save you some more phone calls. I know for a fact, my SLO only meets with 2 (old existing watches, in his basic car area). But if you'll post the numbers, I'll make a fool of myself and ask him if there are possibly THAT many more, he just doesn't KNOW about).

There are probably bloggers from most of these areas popping in here, and if not, we can get them the nessage -- and they'll be glad to FACT CHECK your work. (Since you're not even in the area, you wouldn't expect us to take your anonymous "facts" at (two) face value, right?

(Funny, how almost ALL the CD-14 bloggers here are so-called ADV-haters?) I guess you gotta really get to KNOW ADV.

Maybe because of lies just like this, by people who DON'T live here, and think it's funny to try and cover Tony's lying mouth tracks with more lies.

Is that FUNNY to you, Parker, you get a kick out of kicking community activists who have been lied to nonstop for two years in the teeth some more, just to back up your hero's lies and ONLY (fake) accomplishments?

The big difference between Hahn and Antonio is very simple. Hahn has an accomplished record, public safety, after school programs, gang reduction program in Antonio's district, traffic control, bringing back community policing, bringing back Senior Leads, stopping LAPD from leaving thanks to getting rid of Parks.

Antonio on the other hand has to go back to his days as assembly speaker. What an idiot! If he had anything to speak of since he's been in council 2 yrs he would put them on those stupid commericals. He has ZERO. Oh but things have now been added. He opposes gang injunctions, reporters are going after the story if he called the state prosecutor to get that drug dealer off who would STILL be doing time for being caught wth 800 lbs. of cocaine. Parker if its taken you this long and you still don't know if those 80 neighborhood watches exist then givc up. THEY DON'T. You're making an ass out of yourself. CD14 is pissed at Antonio for lying and using them. They are organizing to get this big lie out.

I have seen that many of the Antonio haters in here have pointed to the "Homicide in Hollenbeck" CNN special as an example of how Antonio is a bad councilman. But as I watch this, and as some "evil, liberal, white westsider" get upset about the horrible conditions that people in East LA are living under, it doesn't change my mind. In fact, I'm still voting for Antonio and watching this, I am more convinced of what a success story he is. And I look at Hahn as a complete failure. Gang injunctions are not a long term solution to eradicating gang violence. He's the damn mayor, he should be responsible for doing something. Not every tragedy in life is Antonio's fault. And I hope that when Antonio becomes mayor, he can use his powers to help clean this mess up.

There are many people in our city with success stories. Antonio is not the absolute, but what is absolute is that Antonio is corrupt, lied, and is your typical con man. There are many, many more success stories in our communities, people who really want to serve and make this city better, but Villaraigosa is a prepackaged PR job, and his success in getting criminals of the hook, cheating, lying, stagnant community he so call serves, plus many more...should be told.

Who is supposed to take control of his district for the past two years? Antonio, but he never did and was never there...always Mr. $$$$ boy for the DNC.


Who sympathizes with the criminals?
Antonio.

Who is a socialist?
Antonio

I can go on...but I don't want to take up blog space for things we already know about this crook.

I would hate to see Villaraigosa in charge of the Police Dept., Commissioners, and Budget. Vigilante days are foreseen.

Why do you guys keep calling Tony a socialist? Do you guys actually think he ever picked up a book by Marx, or Rouseau, Kant, Smith or Engels for that matter. The guy is a puppet. He went with the socialist/white liberal/ patronizing movement because that is where the easy girls where. The girls in East L.A. had started to take hime to court. And these radical dudes were so hard up for the great brown hope that anyone would have fit the bill.

A philosopher Tony should have studied is Nietzche because the only theory Tony aspires to is nihilism. Everywhere Tony has gone he's left a path of destruction (California going bankrupt after his tenure as Speaker; UTLA possibly the most member hated union in the county, at least until there last elections; MTA with still no subway in East L.A., but plenty of insider contracts; Martha Reyna's and Richard's family destroyed, you know, your past best friends; that girl from Sacred Heart and from the Capitol garage; Boyle Heights awash in blood, the CNN story doesn't tell the half of it - gang bangers collecting protection money from street vendors, gang bangers forcing girls into prostitution, gang bangers taking over public parks;) Ever wonder why the activists in his own district keep away. They're just honoring Tony's 2001 mantra, "Tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you who you are." I guess the movement in the Eastside doesn't want to be Tony.

Why did your daddy Antonio promise to clean this "mess" up ONCE he became a councilmember, then?

Why did he blame the LAST councilmember for the mess?

Why have none of the ADV-lovers addressed THIS broken promise and the lie two years ago.

You cannot walk on both sides of this fence. Two years ago (when "Homicide in Hollenbeck") wasn't bad enough to rate a CNN special, ADV claimed the "mess" was because CD14 HAD a bad councilmember.

NOW, becuase he HAS that job, suddenly it "NOT MY FAULT."

How can anyone rationale condone that kind of evil conniving abuse of people's hopes. You spit on the graves of the dead family members of CD14 peoplewhen you try to claim this.

I'm note sure the DNC is going to be Tony's best friend, anymore. Why else would they have put his so high up last year, as only a lowly councilmember from L.A. -- to deliver Latino votes -- but Latino's voted for the mangled Spanish-speaking Texas cowboy and the Republican ticket in record percentages.

Another botched ADV project. Bad show, old Tony. Maybe they should have located a 21st century pol, instead of some dinosaur leftover.

Picking him would be like running Tom Hayden up to the top -- same era of washed out, washed up ideologies.

Some give Tony a calendar -- that says 2005 -- not 1995, Tony Rex.

By the defiition of what "sour grapes" means, it's the ADV-lovers.

He can't complete "stupid little" projects like dog parkes and saving museums and private high schools (and skate parks and citywide policy measures and just about everything else the people have asked for in two years), WELL,that's because they're NOT important anyway.

He can't get the endorsement of most of the city council and community activitists he's working with the past two years (the people who know him best), WELL, that's just because THEY are not important.

He can't get the backing of (and ignores) his own neighborhood council leaders in the district -- WELL, that's because THEY are not important either, just pissy little wannabes (that's how you described them, right MEAT),

If Tony CAN'T get it done (everything, basicallY), then it's JUST not important. THAT's the definition of sour grapes, and the ADV-lovers are the definition of the bitter losers, NOT the unhappy constituents of CD14, many or which trusted him and voted for him two years ago. THEY are the idealist ones, believeing in ideals like honesty, integrity and sticking with the task until it's done -- all FOREIGN concepts to ADV and his groupies.

All that's important to them is "dump Hahn," by any means, even lies and slime, so they can ALL enjoy their momentary Villa-orgasm together.

Every other fact of ADV's imcompetence posted here repeatedly (and never disproven) is just "hate" - "pettiness" and not important.

IF you win, you will find out VERY quickly how important it would have been to TEACH Tony V. those "foreign" phrases, just once before he moved up the ladder...

"honesty, integrity and sticking with the task until it's done."

Listen up smart guys:

I am not a "fake" Republican, I am a real, live registered Republican and have been for over forty years.

Many of us are supporting Antonio. Just this week, many more joined us from the Hertzberg camp.

You ask for proof? I tell you that I have worked woth Antonio in Sacramento and find him to be a full supporter of the theory that "...if you don't create wealth, you cannot help anyone".

Time after time he has taken on the Democratic majority to move issues that are good policy for California in order to make the economic engine work.

I know little of CD 14 or the petty bickering there; I do know that Nick Pacheco was not pro-business and as a consequence was bad for LA. He constantly voted against business in the Council.

You canot keep taxing us and not allow us to make the money to pay the taxes and hire the people. We will leave the City and go somewhere else where we are treated fairly. We have done that in droves and taken the jobs with us.

There has to be a balance, and Antonio understands that well; Hahn does not.

James Hahn has been awful for business, except his pet donors who have looted the City and taken valuable dollars that could have been used for Police in CD 14 and other parts of the City.

You guys should be after him, not Antonio, as the resources of the Police Department are deployed by the Mayor and his Commission.

If you knew as much as you claim to know about the City, then, of course, you would already know that, right?

Look, you may have real grievances against Antonio. He may have slept with your sister, or someone close to you, or he may have done something that upsets you. He is far from perfect. But this City needs a change and cannot maintain its present course.

Jimmy is powerless to take on his own bureaucracy.

Antonio is the only alternative, and he is so far in front this time, Jimmy can never catch him.

So just like America, where we are all one country, we have one President, George W. Bush and you should support him, our Governor and whoever is the Mayor, until the election.

And, when the election is over, we all need to support the winner.

This is America and we all need to act like Americans.

Until then, I respect your right to vote against and not support Antonio, but not bring the pettiness of CD 14 and his private life to these pages.

Boy have you got your wires crossed. Of course if it is Parke that is posting at 4:30 in the morning, your post is understandable, I told you Parke couldn't get any sleep, not with a loose cannon like Tony rolling around the deck.

First off, Pacheco was much more pro-business than Tony - check the contribution lists for 2003 and find out how many downtown businesses contributed to Pacheco's campaign. In fact, that was Tony's line all along that Nick was too conservative, and that was the message he took the the liberal westside to raise his money.

As for the pettiness of the 14th District, yeah, you and any other white boy from the valley - inlcuding those running Tony's campaign - would consider 15 homicides as petty, after all , they're just mexicans, right? You would consider failure after failure - dog park, southwest museum, homeboy industries graffitti removal, transportation committee screw-ups, the list goes on and on - as being petty because it's only the mexican eastside that is being affected.

Regarding his personal life, you are so mesmerized by Tony's appeal - like a little school girl at a high school dance, that you are willig to excuse his personal flaws and brand them as petty.

Is drug dealing petty?
Is attempted rape petty?
Is assualt with a deadly weapon petty?
Is breaking up your best friends family petty?
Is physically abusing your daughter petty?
Is having four women bear your children petty?
Is having whore parties at Hertzberg's apartment in Sacto petty?

The list goes on and on. You can excuse youthful indiscretions, but not when you're 50 years old. All this must be petty to you, but it shouldn't be petty for the mayor of Los Angeles

Question to ADV lovers? Why hasn't ADV done anything about the homicides in his district? If you can tell us maybe we could understand you're irrational thinking. Pacheco organized a peace march, met with LAPD several times, met with commuity leaders and gang prevention and intervention people. He at least did something proactive. Most of the ADV lovers are blind. I met an ADV lover at a hugh meeting and he said the only reason he was supporting ADV was because he worked w/him on the Kerry campaign. These are the type of idiots he has. BTW republican you can count all the people that supported Hertzberg and Alarcon helping to push for Hahn. They are ashamed that their candidates would be so hypocritical. White voters are stating that they are now wondering if ADV would give additional rights to illegal immigrants.

It's really simple. Villaraigosa was elected by the people to do a job, and he did not finish it.

Second, some AV supporters who claim that CD 14 posters are just bickering, well, the citizens are just using their right to speak out. Although Villaraigosa loves to suppress this right when it is not to his convenience.

Why would anyone in their sane mind want to elect someone who was elected to do a job by making too many promises and then not delivering one of those promises to it's community.

CD 14 may not be important to you for whatever reason, but what is important for everyone in L.A. & Valley is, do they really want AV in office knowing that he could not complete his previous "little" job. He couldn't even lead CD14 and you want him to be Mayor, that is insane. And this is even before we get into his "imaginary record" and criminal connections...

Republican for AV (ACE SMITH) vote for AV, it's ok, just make sure you change your voter registration card to republican, this way Antonio can hire you for his next election in CUBA.

"Between doors, Villaraigosa says he has a surprise in store for people who think running for council would seem a comedown for a former Assembly speaker.

"The City Council is where things get done in the community," he says. "And I've shown I know how to get things done. But I don't believe a council member is just a person that ensures that services have been delivered. I think a council member should be a leader as well."

TWO YEARS as a CM, and not a single significant community improvement project completed, including a dozen or more already in the works when he took office with estimated completion dates of less than a year -- and they're still making excuses, blaming others, blaming people who left office two years ago, blaming other city departments for delays (and THE departments try to be "political" and just grin through the haze, but some are REALLY starting to get pissed, and are letting the constituents know -- "WE are not the problem -- ADV's staff CAN'T even file a work order or request of budget properly so we can take it to council or commissions, etc. to get the go-ahead).

WORST is saying there's no money, when they haven't even yet spent discretionary funds for some categories of expenditures dating BACK to 2003.

(Granted some of these delays ARE Pacheco's fault, but not for the reasons the blame-game field staffers give. If he hadn't lost to this do-nothing, empty suited yutz, ADV, the district could be moving ahead again).
