Mailander Notches Up Sunland-Tujunga Jihad

How can he hate this place?
Oddly, for some time, blogger Joseph Mailander has been on a strange tear against activists in Sunland-Tujunga who wish to review and add more teeth to the community's Bush 41 era general plan.

It's only my opinion, but if I may SPECULATE, Joseph is angry at Sunland-Tujunga activist and MayorSam blogger, Joe Barrett.  Some kind of personal beef, who cares.

Mailander has now even gone as far to indirectly refer to activists in the foothill community as "animals," dredging up an old quote from the former grand dame of Joel Wach's fiefdom, Arlene DeSantis.

Back in the day, before it was crammed into LeBongLand, NoHo was part of CD2 as well.  We knew Arlene quite well.  She had the sensitivity of Leona Helmsley when it came to resident concerns.

Fortunately for the remainder of CD2, they have the all star team of Paul Krekorian's staff who actually give a rip. I digress.

Mailander has been making a lot of wacky claims about this issue.  Normally we would not care. But given the isolation of Sunland-Tujunga and it's importance to the region, the record simply must be set straight.

Stay tuned over the next several days as we deconstruct the former "blogging godfather's" rant and roll.

And we apologize for any mess in the process.

FYI; We're trying to add teeth to the Specific Plan, not the general plan.

Good luck gaining any type of consensus from a group of people in Sunland-Tujunga. If ten people show up, there will be fourteen different opinions.

I've never seen a community MORE united than Sunland-Tujunga.

We've got a few bad apples, but for the most part, S-T rocks the United thingy!

Guys, don't refer to Mailander and alcohol. It's an off limits topic. I know he makes comments in his post about "surly drunks" but no need to go there. Now that we know his motivation behind his stories about ST we need only deal with his "facts."

Mailander is calling David DeMulle a community leader in S-T? The same David DeMulle who is a convicted felon and was arrested on federal weapons charges last year?

Mailander is using David DeMulle who was convicted for Felony Perjury as one of his "credible sources" to defame the former Treasurer of the STNC. He is so lazyhe would not eve all DONE to verify the lies he printed.

Mailander is being played like a cheap fiddle, by those he NAMES, because he does not verify his stories before publishing them.

Yet another of my posts was removed by Joseph Mailander, My guess is that he removes them when they hit on the truth. Well here is the most recently removed post:

Joseph, Joseph sigh. You are being played by those who wrote the playbook, on discrediting everyone and anyone who want to improve Sunland Tujunga. They tried it in 2006 and are trying it now. If your blog were around in 2006, they would have played you then too. No one you listed as a "source" is credible and the list has caused much laughter. David DeMuelle, owner of a local "newspaper" was convicted of Felony Perjury and you list HIM as a source. That alone shows you are not doing "due diligence' before writing this story.
I got an e-mail message that you want to contact me. I too will follow the lead of so many other RESPECTED Community Leaders. I will not be speaking/writing to you. You twist words.
Another example of "due diligence" you could have done BEFORE printing lies, character assassinations and innuendo about my Treasury Position would have been to contact DONE. They know that I did not resign and they know the truth. You would rather become the mouthpiece of a few disgruntled, angry, old guard Sunland Tujugans than write the truth.

Joseph Mailander is having a meltdown right now. He is censoring posts because he looks like an idiot for his S-T reporting!

Former STNC Treasurer,
I saw your post on Mailander's blog and he did indeed remove it. The text of your comment that you have posted here matches the comment that Mailander removed on his blog. I cannot see any other reason for him removing your comment than the one you mentioned. The truth really hurts Joseph Mailander.

Does Joseph Mailander even know that David DeMulle routinely refers to Armenians as "Armos" and blames them as well as Latino immigrants for being responsible for all of Sunland-Tujunga's problems including the many traffic accidents on Foothill Boulevard?

I can't believe that Joseph Mailander is censoring his blog over a comment like that!

Joe, aren't you going to do an afternoon hotsheet?

I just did. Jeez, what a demanding whip-cracker!

I reposted my comment and he removed it again. Comical.

I know we aren't allowed to talk about Joseph Mailander's you-know-what problem, but I am just curious if you think this is a factor in his loss of credibility?
Real question.
