Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Monday

The Los Angeles Times reports that veteran teacher Bennett Kayser was the only candidate to submit the needed voter signatures in time to run for the school board seat being vacated by David Tokofsky. Kayser who helped rewrite the Los Angeles City Charter will go up against face Yolie Flores Aguilar, chief executive of the Los Angeles County Children's Planning Council, in the March primary. Kayser has been endorsed by the retiring Tokofsky.

The LA City Council - especially our favorite ex-motorcycle cop - endorsed the ridiculous Declaration of Los Angeles which sets old white people who rail on about illegal immigration as being far more dangerous and subversive than criminal alien gangs who prey on mostly poor immigrant peoples. With turnabout being fair play, KABC Radio has developed The Declaration of Concerned American Citizens which reiterates that its okay to hold our government accountable for enforcing it's immigration laws.

Local Democratic activists are wagging their tongues about possible candidates to replace newly elected Assemblyman Richard Alarcon should he be elected to his former Los Angeles City Council seat thanks to Proposition R. Among those who could be eyeing the 39th Assembly seat are fomer council staffer Felipe Fuentes, former Assemblywoman Cindy Montanez and current President of the Northridge West Neighborhood Council Jim Alger.

LA City Nerd has an interesting story about regional City Halls in Los Angeles. The next phase of looniness is that the City wants to establish a 10th branch city hall only two miles from the current City Hall. Please explain why we need to spend millions of dollars to do this?

Clark Baker has street cred when it comes to finding the causes and potential solutions for crime in our city. Not only did the former marine serve as an LAPD officer for years in the inner city, he grew up in the hood himself as the child of an undocumented alien in Pacoima. As politically incorrect as it sounds, Baker says that its not racism or injustice but liberal social engineering policies - going back to the days of Mayor Tom Bradley - that have made it difficult for police officers to protect mostly poor and minortiy populations from the thugs that prey upon them.

Anyone who has seen the film Working Girl knows about the boatloads of secretaries and other workers who have no choice but to take ferries to get from their homes in the New York City borough of Staten Island to their jobs in Manhattan. MetroRider LA is proposing a similar mode of transportation from Long Beach to Santa Monica. Local government apparently isn't interested it - and as one reader points out you've got a bit of trek around Palos Verdes Pennisula - but it is an interesting idea. If you could get the right type of boat, enough of them, and solid transporation connections at each terminal it could be an interesting commuting alternative.

I know I don't live there anymore but I didn't think my departure would that much of an impact. Apparently nothing is going on in Sherman Oaks these days. Both of the two excellent blogs that cover news in the former hometown of Liberace have not had anything to say since November 11th and November 24th respectively. Come on guys something must be going on out there.

Looks like the future of Starbucks is secure. Franklin Avenue reports on a whole spat of recent yuppie baby births. Get those play dates booked now!

And finally this old, dead Republican mayor has come to know that his father has entered the digital world and is now a daily reader of this blog. Welcome to the Sister City Dad - see you on Christmas!

This Los Angeles Declaration which encourages the acts of illegal “immigration” is a blasphemous document of treason, betrayal and staunch racism against all legal, legitimate, authorizes American US citizens and all that the United States of America has fell-died, stand-lives, and wage war and peace for.

The Los Angeles Declaration seeks to silence and/or censure any US citizen who dares to speak out against the illegal “immigration” invasion of the United States of America, even denying them of their hard fought and won Civil and Constitutional Rights to Freedom of speech.

This “Declaration” is a beginning of established racist, fascism, even challenging the original 1776 Declaration of Independence of the United States of America and the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation.

This Los Angeles Declaration is essentially a declaration of war upon the freedoms guaranteed to all US citizens by the Constitutions of the United States and the State of California.

This Los Angeles Declaration is especially an outrageous affront – “slap in the face” of American Black US citizen in that they are the most negatively affected by the illegal “immigration” invasion by citizens primarily from Mexico and Mesoamerican nations.

As the Crispus Attucks Brigade proclaims in a clarion warning that the border incursion and illegal colonization of the USA is the greatest threat to Black US citizens, descendents of West African Americanized chattel slaves, since slavery; and consequently the gravest danger to the security of the United States since the Civil War!

CAB and its allies notices that the contents of the Los Angeles Declaration has more poignancy and meaning when applied to American US citizens, since it they who are the victims of an invasion by citizens of foreign countries.

However, in contrast to the documents that seeks to rob American citizens, especially Blacks of their Constitutional and Civil Rights, the patriotic allies defending the United States will read to the general public and present to City the Declaration of Concerned Americans authored by KADC Radio Talk Show hosts.

Higby blames Mack Reed for noticing that he, Higby, is selling his opinion for a "few pesos." Hah, it's Mack Reed's fault for noticing Higby's indescretion? NOT!

Higby yells at the folks who think that selling his editorial is unethical. Says "If you don't like it play on the highway." As in, if you have a problem with how unethical he is go fuck yourself.
The pirate and the privateer moan

Hah! If you have ethics, go play on the highway and die.

Higby and the Zuma Dogg THUGG appear and appear threating and shouting and...well when Zuma Thug got arrested at city clowncil who didn't cheer?

Hey Zuma Thug, don't you think we have enough ASSHOLES in the city government alreadyt? WHO NEEDS YOU?

Once upon a time you stood for something Mayor Sam. That was a LONG LONG Time ago. Before Walter Moore's Captain set sail for higher waters.

Nice to see them leave. Now, clean up your joint Higby. Forgive us for saying it but right now you aren't much better (and maybe even worse) than the slimeball politicians you criticize. You tried to get money for it too.

Jason Dougherty, a Cobalt Road resident, lives two blocks from the school. He said for about 45 minutes a day his neighborhood shifts from a quiet existence to a war zone.

“We become infested with gang-bangers. We’ve seen brutal fights and total disregard for our homes, cars and families,” Dougherty said. “It’s like something straight out of South Central.”

Look I personally like Mack Reed so i am not going to comment regarding what he does on yahoo groups.

But the reason why we are one of the top blogs in the city isn't because of the graphics or layout -- it's because we post insight other blogs sometimes deny. We posted insight on the Neighborhood Councils, Public Works Commissioners, Mayor's race and Opposition research that was e-mailed to us, other blogs did not or waited til the LA Times posted it.

Mayor Sam and Chief Parker aren't going anywhere -- those bloggers fascinated with the number of visitors we get or how many comments we get need to get a life.

If we lose visitors fine, but I can tell you that the LA Times and Daily News/Breeze reporters read our site everyday.

Or, will the new school superintendent turn out to be the next Willie Williams

By DAVID ZAHNISER
Wednesday, October 18, 2006 - 6:00 pm

"...David L. Brewer III, like Villaraigosa, even had his own dropout story, telling a rapt audience how he left Howard University because of poor grades, only to batten down and secure a college degree.

“He’s a black Antonio Villaraigosa,” said one elated elected official who met the retired U.S. Navy admiral this week.

Before Brewer had even been selected, the mayor’s camp pressed the Los Angeles Times to investigate whether the sailor had ties to school district contractors, according to three district officials, who would not be identified. Michael Trujillo, an apparatchik for the mayor’s campaign committee, called one school-construction firm himself to determine whether Brewer has a personal relationship with Jim McConnell, the former construction czar for L.A. Unified who now heads a school-development firm. Hours before district officials named Brewer, they found themselves trying to counter a hatchet job, telling the Times that their pick did not personally know McConnell, a former military man himself.

Mayoral campaign spokesman Nathan James said L.A. Unified’s allegations are not “ringing a bell,” then accused the district of being sore at the mayor. “I talk to the Times all the time. I’m not going to talk to you about what I talked about,” he said. “This obviously is a big story, and one that everybody should be following up on — who the candidates are, what their qualifications are.”

MEMORIES, THOSE GOOD OLE TIMES

LOS ANGELES - For almost a year, a tell-all blog both entertained and irked City Hall workers with anonymous postings that included profanity-laced rants, personal attacks and gossip.

Now, the people behind Mayor Sam's Sister City - a reference to former Mayor Sam Yorty - have finally come forward.

Turns out that two of the three worked for candidates in this year's mayoral election.

Brian Hay, 29, worked for former Assembly Speaker Bob Hertzberg, who was defeated in the March primary.
Mike Trujillo, 26, served as an unpaid volunteer on Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's campaign and was a spokesman for a preschool ballot initiative headed by actor-director Rob Reiner.

The site's creator, Michael Higby, 40, is a community activist in the San Fernando Valley and wasn't connected to any mayoral candidate.
Hay, who oversaw Hertzberg's computer operations during his mayoral campaign, said he became active with the blog after Hertzberg's defeat in the primary election.

Hertzberg said Thursday that he didn't know Hay was a key figure behind the anonymous blog.
"I probably would have stopped him if I had known," said Hertzberg, who was the chairman of Villaraigosa's transition team.
Trujillo said that Reiner, who also backed Villaraigosa, was unaware of his role with the blog. Reiner, through a spokesman, declined to comment.

Trujillo said he thought people gave the site too much credit for digging up dirt."I don't know anything; all I know is the e-mails that I receive and would post," he said. "At no time was it me going around and looking for stuff."
But Bernard Parks Jr., chief of staff for Councilman Bernard C. Parks, another unsuccessful mayoral candidate, said the blog - unlike the mainstream media - usually did not call him to get a response for any negative story about his father.
"It's a very little surprise that one campaign had something to do with it," Parks Jr. said.
The blog contributors said Thursday that they identified themselves because they

The mayor was somewhat less chivalrous after the event, when reporters asked him why so many public-school children had been whisked away from their lessons to watch an inherently political event — one featuring a cast of elected officials, union leaders and a banner with the words “Middle Class Tax Cut” printed on it 26 times. Villaraigosa argued that the endorsement gave students a handy civics lesson, even as he threw the school’s administrators under the proverbial bus by saying he played no role in denying the students instructional time.

“I didn’t choose to take the kids out of class. The school did,” he declared.

Officials at L.A. Unified were deeply unhappy with that explanation, saying they themselves learned about the endorsement event late Friday from Foshay principal Veronique Wills, who in turn told them that she had been contacted by Michael Trujillo, a member of the mayor’s privately funded school-reform-campaign team, who assured her that use of the campus had already been cleared by the district.

Education belongs to the Democratic Party, so why all the fuss?

Is it true the City Controller didn't do an audit of DWP because there was a couple of CM's whose family members are involved in projects that sell DWP bogus goods for really high prices. In other words they are assisting family members in ripping off the city through inflated contacts.

Just ask a certain CM whose wife is involved in a corporation selling goods to DPW.

Anti Assimilation Movement

Those who join in this movement believe that anyone not of Mexican heritage existing on American soil is a foe. They believe that all those who immigrated to the United States since the days of the pilgrims – including those who came as slaves – are invaders and that the American Southwest rightly belongs to Mexico. They refuse to assimilate into mainstream American culture choosing to speak Spanish over English whenever possible and vehemently discourage marrying outside "the Race."

And while they hold nothing for contempt for the United States, they are incrementally infusing themselves and their movement into our American system of government. Both Cruz Bustamante, the current Lt. Governor of California, and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa were members of MEChA, a radical organization that promotes Latino superiority.

The aversion toward assimilation in the Islamic community is more prevalent. Islamic leaders and special interest groups alike routinely pressure governmental entities around the free world to acquiesce to their cultural laws. Many times, when their requests fail, the response is violent.

Joel Kotkin Discusses Los Angeles City Politics in the L.A. Daily News

Retired Navy Adm. David Brewer III's outreach effort specifically included Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, whose effort to take charge of educational reform has been met with stiff resistance from LAUSD officials...

Veteran consultant Joel Kotkin of Valley Village also cautioned Brewer not to underestimate Villaraigosa's considerable influence.

"The new superintendent comes in facing a culture in Los Angeles that has never been more defined by the mayor and his circle than at any time that I can remember," said Kotkin, who has written extensively about the city's power structure.

"It's the Antonio show, and no one wants to say anything negative. I don't know if it's fair to portray the school board as a bunch of obstructionists, but (Brewer) has to know what the political terrain of the city is."

These conultants have a long history of fulfilling their "race victim" fantasies using minority candidates as their stooges. What is it that Parke Skelton always says, "We don't do white people, just minorities, gays and lesbians." What a way to advance the social situations of our truly disenfranchised minority populations - let's get some idiot who we can control.

Touchy, touchy! I guess I struck a nerve with all that race victim fantasy talk. And you're right. The quote didn't come from you, but it did come from your office. I just verified the quote from Wayne Bannister, a candidate for county assessor in 2000. He went to your office to try and hire you but he was turned away by Allison Morgan and the direct quote is "We don't do straight white guys, just minorities, gays and lesbians." Why don't you call Wayne at the county assessors office, he'll tell you the same.

But should you really be playing all these little games while your "boy Huizar" is about to get hammered.

As for proud Mexican American, read Gandhi or watch the movie. There is a very important conversation between Gandhi and Walker (the "white" guy who was always by his side and ironically played by Mexican Amercian Martin Sheen in the movie). In the conversation Gandhi convinces Walker that from that point on, the revolution must be for Indians by Indians. There was no hint of bigotry or race baiting. Being the enlightened person that Walker was, he understood this and stepped aside. The result is the largest democracy in the world.

And Parke, you brought up the word slander. If you are worried about your reputation, maybe you should worry about the people you take under your wing. You still don't know everything about Tony, but you're about to find out. And if you want to sue me, go right ahead.

When Antonio was running for council. One minute he was talking to (someone he thought was) a middle-class Anglo and chatting her up about "gentrification" and attracting more "upper-middle income" families to the area and "upscaling" things (because he thought that's what she wanted to hear), and then 60 seconds later his other face was telling someone from a lower-income Latino family about the need for more "affordable housing" there. ALL in the exact same small community. This guy can switch pandering gears faster than most NFL QB's can call an audible. Funny thing was, the "middle-class" person he started pandering to was appalled, "where are we (she and her lower-middle class neighbors of all races) going to live when everything here get's upscaled?" - she asked later.

Hi, folks:

Mayor Sam just hipped me to the fact that someone was posting here last night posing as me, and someone (else?) was slandering my family.

We've got pretty thick skins, against insults and falsified bullshit, so that part doesn't bug me (yet).

I am troubled that someone's posing as me, though.

So, just to clear that up - this is my Blogger sign-on (mack_reed) and I don't tend to post at Mayor Sam very often at all.

I bear no ill will toward Mayor Sam for any of this - I've always been a (slightly cynical) admirer of the vigor and wit of the community he's created here, I know you guys have fun arguing long and loud, and I realize only too well how hard it is to keep people from abusing each other - and third-party targets who have nothing to do with the argument at hand - in comments.

Anyway, unless you see my username on a comment with my Blogger username on it (mack_reed), you can definitely discount it as a total fabrication and carry on.

Sots, I don't wear fish ties as they are for fops. This weekend past I wore a bolero with leather breeches and tall boots. The wench I was escorting thought that I looked quite handsome. I thought I did too. However, vanity is more Villabarbosa's suit and not mine. Our bard wears a cravat sometimes and other times wears gown and mortarboard. A pirate doesn't have to be nice to look nice, savvy?

Anon, just an observation about all that has been posted this morning. One can tell that LAUSD schools have let out for the break, as all the children can't seem to play nice together. We are happy to see the entrance of Mr. Kayser into the fray and heartily endorse him. And before all the sots and harpies start crowing about my ability to call elections, let me remind that I am not a bookie or a king maker. Rather, if you will, my election calling track record is as perfect as the always ethical and honest behaviour of the Clowncil. And we all know how ethical and honest those blokes are, savvy?

(sighs) Yes, the pirate's life is a good one. Just ask Lord Chapman about how privateering has its moments. And while you sots and twitterchatters are out in the street engaging in fistacuffs and 10 pace duels, we pirates are quietly having our moments inside. It's what you know from those moments and not what you tell in a moment that matters.

Speaking of moments, we understand that what was a small, momentary ripple in the pond known as the Catorce Quarter is turning into whitecaps for Don Jose. Red Spot surely must have a nice view from his hillside perch. See the fair vessel yon that flies the Ottoman's pennant? Should that vessel put into port, I would hie myself away before the tempest escapes its teapot; especially if you were one of the teapot handlers.
