Big Laugh: Bradley Preaches Diversity and Tolerance

The latest "Bradley" video is a hoot. Bradley wants to have some kind of town hall forum where the topic is one of "diversity" and "tolerance." Pretty funny coming from a tinhorn dictator who doesn't seem to preach much diversity and tolerance when it comes to those who oppose his Neighborhood Council and their actions.

The funniest part of this video is some clown on the Council board who is opposed to the Northeast Los Angeles Yahoo Group and does not want them to be part of the "forum." Apparently their crime is that they "defame" people and equates what is said on this Yahoo group to the type of real racism the Anti-Defamation League fights.

This comparison is insulting as if you read the Northeast LA Yahoo group most of it is pretty mundane. The only thing I can surmise is "defamatory" is user comments that that take on the Council board for their authoritarian ways..

By the way CurbedLA has picked up on the comedy of Bradley here and here.

Lets hope at some point the good folks of Glassell Park get a real Neighborhood Council. And that probably puts me on their enemies list.

Walter, we all know you are getting contributions from developers. Why else would you say you "support" them (6/27/07 3:29am). While we're at it, why were you still awake and blogging at 3:29am anyway?

If you're not taking contributions from developers, we'd like some proof. Please share who has been giving you that $7000 each month.

Bradley (real estate developer)

Godwin Iwunze (real estate developer of those God-awful Glassell Park houses on Parrish Avenue)

Both are quick to throw down the race card the moment their projects or opinions are questioned. If you ask a question they don't like, well, you must be racist.

It takes honest community debate to a new low level.

That lady talking looks like Paula Bagasao. How sad and pathetic that she has been treated poorly her "entire life" because of who she is and what she stands for. Do we see a pattern here? There are evil people out there for sure, but for one to think that everyone is out to get you, well that is just not right.

Mayor Sam this is getting a bit obsessive and ridculous going after Bradley. Gt over it and move on. There are muh bigger and more important issues like David Brewer wanting to charge youth programs or youth in general who want to use any LAUSD facility after school. That's bullshit. Read it yourself.

How about a thread on all the shenanigans going on in the Eastern part of the county. Just take a look at the L.A. Weekly - there is much more than meets the eye.

Bell Gardens Councilman Beltran's house and office is raided, he is tied to convicted felons towing cars from low income residents and Beltran is connected to Cedillo and Calderon and Peralta and his consulting firm counts Gloria Molina Deputy and Alhambra councilman Luis Ayala as a client and Ayala's wife Adriana, a former Villaraigosa rep was appointed to the Alhambra City Planning Committee that just awarded a development contract to another convicted felon and Cedillo represents Alhambra and the DA is investigating ghost political consulting firms responsible for sending out hit pieces on Monterey Park Mayor Frank Venti who accuses fellow Councilwoman Sharon Martinez who is a high school classmate of Darryl Alatorre, Richard's son, who also had contracts from Alhambra despite having a suspended corporation who has ties to current Alhambra Mayor Messina who was just exposed by the Pasadena Star News as illegally funding fake Latino GOTV efforts, whew! This goes on and on.

Just take a look.

46-53, immigration bill goes down in defeat

The comprehensive immigration reform bill that has dodged attacks from the left and right for weeks, survived “poison pill” amendments, and was once pulled from the Senate schedule failed its most important test Thursday. Passage of the legislation now appears unlikely.

The bipartisan coalition that had shepherded the measure through so many obstacles failed to get the 60 votes necessary to end debate. The final vote was 46-53

Amazing you guys want to waste time on bashing a good community volunteer instead of all the corruption going on under our noses in city hall. Antonio has a convicted coke dealer Richard Alatorre as a paid consultant. Then he gives Cynthia Ruiz his kid's godmother a $100,000 commissioner job and she has no experience, then Tony Cardenas' brother Ernesto gets a $100,000 job, Bitter Bernie has a coke, prostitute moron on his payroll, Mike Hernandez, and his son Parks Jr. who is a classy guy is his COS and the list goes on. So stop bashing a community volunteer.

You left off Dave Sickler, Cindy Martinez, and that labor lawyer that just got appointed to those cushy commissioner positions.

Antonio's administration will go down as the epitomy of the Labor/Gay/Latino fleacing of Los Angeles.

What part of "good" includes violating the Brown Act (undeniably, by ALL assessments but his own), without expressing regrets or even an apology after he stopped someone legally taping a public meeting? He continues to defend breaking a state law -- now saying (maybe) he only broke it "a little bit" near the end of the meeting.

What part of "good" excuses being openly hostile and threatening (on tape) to a stakeholder during a public comment period at a meeting sponsored by a city department, where he left his seat (for the FIRST time), walked completely around the room and then stood inches behind the stakeholder, mockingly yawning and mugging for the audience, while she spoke - to belittle her concerns?

Where's the "good" in denying his own constituents direct access to board members, "speak to the city attorney, leave us alone".

Where's the "good" in not making public documents available to stakeholders in a timely manner upon legal and polite request? ("go get them your own damn self, they're [NOT] on the Website")

Is it REALLY "good" to lie about your involvement in a stakeholder project that you should probably have recused yourself from voting on - or EVEN discussing with board members? If it is, the it must be doubly "good" to lie again once public documents presented at another meeting proved your involvement?

What's so "good" about the chair voting on board issues, at all (in direct violation of Roberts Rules and the NC's own bylaws)?

What's "good" about all that? We must be looking up "good" in different dictionaries. People in power who break the rules written to protect us all from "bad" leaders, BECOME by their actions the "bad" leaders themselves.

Being a "volunteer" doesn't remove you from criticism for breaking the very rules you agreed to enforce when you were sworn into an office.

"I swear to uphold . . . (unless it gets in the way of my remaining in power)"

Thank you, Dick Nixon!

What these people fail to realize is that they can not prove defamation. It is hard to prove it , esp. if it is a person, who, under the City Charter is also an elected official that is governed by the same rules as someone such as a City Council Person. These people fail to realize that they have caused to be seen by their actions abuse of power. These people have also failed to see that they have to prove libel and defamation in a world that says they are fair game. Which means they can not

These people's burden is higher than a person who does not hold a neighborhood council office. That Neighborhood council member by stating that a certain person caused to defame them can be sued for slander and defamation. These GPNC council members are treading on thin ice and don't even know it.

If public comment prohibits making defamatory statements to the elected representatives, and if being loud, disruptive, obnoxious and mentally unhinged are contrary to how meetings should be conducted, then Zuma Dogg should be banned from City Council chambers once and for all. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

However, I agree with the writers who want more attention focused on what goes on in east L A (or for that matter, the Wsst Valley, and NE, which we'd paid no thought to until the Elephant Hill project debate): just because thew westside is most affluent and vocal doesn't mean the reps/ CM's of the other areas should get off scot-free, nor the local NC's.

As for Villaraigosa going to the East Coast not exactly helping pass the immigration bill: the liberals in the East are even appalled by the way the illegals have held sway of our city, and in the south, when I was there on a recent trip, some openly told me opinions I couldn't repeat in writing, but that's the universal view down there. Can you imagine the illegals marching and rioting in Atlanta, and the cops being berated for it? But that's the sociological change Antonio represents to many. We need the Mayor and Council to be more balanced, but that includes Janice Hann and her dumb bleeding-heart agendas, not just the Hispanics.

Let's see if the LA Slimes has a quote from our midget mayor on what he didn't do in Washington. We can add another failure of his so called rock star and charisma as some say. Problem is that charisma hasn't done a damn thing for this city in two years now. There's a bigger issue here if you guys can't find anything else to attack but an NC member. You know all the psychologist say when you criticize a person it has more to do with yourself. Even says it in the Bible.

So, 1:17, lets use your own (er, um) logic?

On the topic of what criticising others REALLY means, what would your shrink, and the Good Book say about YOU:

1) Criticising The Times (calling it the Slimes).

2) Criticising the mayor (calling him a midget mayor, saying he hasn't had anything but failures in two years). Not even his harshest public critics would say he's accomplished "nothing".

3) Criticising people who are pointing out the obvious rule-breaking and hypocrisy of an NC leader (you saying they're "attacking" him). I don't believe anyone here recently has mentioned whether Bradley is a "midget" or "bowlegged" or "has dandruff" or discussed any other personal aspects - just his public performance as an elected leader.

With examples. (Oh, and you failed to even list the "midget mayor's" public failures, other than being too short for your liking.

Seems like in the psychological and theologiucal field of "criticizing" others, you're a triple-threat. Maybe you should check and see if your shrink has a double session available still today.

AT least I'm in the majority when I criticize all the mayor, council their staffers..
Hillary is in trouble.

Negative poll questions alienate base...Mark Penn has been polling for the Clintons since their White House days, when they famously used polls to help determine their vacation spot.

Dan Comly, a technical writer and Democratic activist, was at home in Portsmouth, N.H., on April 4 when he took a call for the most detailed political poll he had ever participated in.

"Wow, this is really cool (that) someone's taking the time to ask about these issues," he recalls thinking. "Then they started specifically comparing candidates," he says, asking whether his views would be altered by Barack Obama's relative lack of national experience, or by John Edwards' background as a wealthy trial lawyer.

So after Comly got off the phone, he did what any 21st-century Democratic activist would do: He went to his favorite liberal blog, My Left Wing, and wrote about the questions, which "began to make me queasy. Someone was trying to bash John Edwards and Barack Obama, and pitch Hillary."

Comly's April post was one of four recent blogged reports about what appear to be surveys by Hillary Rodham Clinton's

What moron thought that Antonio Villar to DC would help out in the immigration debate. The guy is a sound bite joke and other politcians know this very well. Where was Xavier Becerra, Hlda Solis, Lucill Roybal Allard or Grace Napolitano at his press conference. When the Los Angeles congressional delegation doesn't even show up to the mayor's press conference, you know the isn't on solid footing.

The local press played up his trip, now they can't shy away from his failure. If anything, the Mayor pushed the vote the othe way - by my calculations there was a 20 vote swing.

And now Obama is raising more money than Hillary, Antonio's career is over. Karma is a motherfucker, right Corina?

It's not the Mayor himself but the whole CITY that right now is/ became in the immigration debates, the best argument against legalizing more illegals right now. Everyone thinks: so if they're marching and rioting and holding that whole city hostage as it is, what will they feel empowered to do if we legalize them, and get more illegals waiting in the wings for their turn? And then there is MLK hospital; our city can't afford to keep it open or provide basic health care, the schools have some 90% of kids getting free lunches and lots of them are illegals; yet we're supposed to say, there is no adverse financial impact to this, let the whole country do it. -- the only thing the immigration bill sponsors had in their favor is the argument that, we can't really get some twelve-plus million people out and back to Mexico, so what do we do? IF they agreed to close the border first and deal with the other aspect later, they'd have ahd a deal; but the let's close the borders, but legalize whoever sneaks in anyway, logic, was DOA.
