HOT Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday

The Rhodes Scholar, turned Second Term-seeking Los Angeles Mayor Eric "Gar-SOFT-ee (Garcetti)", is reaping the deserving backlash for his ill-timed (Friday before Memorial Day) comments, praising those who have served ..........., their time/debt to society, for crimes committed.
Mayor "Gar-SOFT-ee" has a tender spot for THOSE who served ........, their time.
** Great Tuesday to all after a "Solemn Day of Remembrance" of those who gave of themselves, in preserving the Cause of Freedom and this Great Nation. While many Angelinos were taking advantage of the Memorial Day Holiday to partake in a three-day getaway or simply BBQ with friends, LA Mayor Eric "Gar-SOFT-ee" was expressing his "THANKS" for those who have "SERVED". In a Memorial Weekend Getaway Friday Presser/Photo Op, with CD 15 City Councilman Joe Buscaino, to announce a $9 Million Dollars Jobs Partnership with CalTrans, the Naval Reservist/Rhodes Scholar ........, and Second Term-seeking Mayor, reaped an immediate KFI 640 AM "John and Ken Show" retort for his comments that thanked ..........., THE FORMERLY INCARCERATED FOR SERVING THEIR TIME.Most of the time, comments such as those showcasing "Mayor Gar-SOFT-ee's" inner-tenderness for the time-served veterans of California's Penal System, would be forgotten by the Tuesday-after a Holiday Weekend. But in lieu of the recent, National News-garnering desecration of the Venice Mural/Memorial to the fallen Soldiers of the Viet-Nam War ......., and the rising Crime Rate (thanks to AB-109 and Prop 47), "Mayor Gar-SOFT-ee" would be better served, by espousing his appreciation to LA's 1,500 LAPD Patrol Officers and the community members who helped in partly-restoring the Venice Memorial/Mural----Scott Johnson.

HOT Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday

As two LAPD Hollenbeck Division Officers recover from injuries resulting from a deadly altercation with an AB-109 "Non-Violent Probationer", speculation is rampant about an alleged, "breech of crime scene protocol", by the now Captain of the newly-created Community Relationships Division (and "close associate" of Chief Charlie Beck), Ruby Malachi.   
Photo via KTLA Channel Five from the Boyle Heights location of the May 13's deadly, officer-involved shooting, which resulted in injuries to two LAPD Hollenbeck Division Officers. 
LAPD Captain I Ruby Malachi.
** As two LAPD Hollenbeck Division Officers continue their respective recoveries following a May 13 Shootout with a supposed (and now deceased) "AB-109 Non-Violent Probationer", speculation is becoming increasing rampant that a certain new "Captain I (and CLOSE associate of LAPD Chief Charlie Beck)" is in need of a refresher course regarding "Crime Scene Protocols". According to multiple sources, Ruby Malachi, the newly-promoted Captain overseeing the recently-created Community Relationships Division, was observed to have breech the May 13 Boyle Heights Crime Scene, as defined by the familiar (and clearly-noted) red color tape, pictured above. This latest episode is surely to garner more scrutiny on how the newly-promoted Captain, was chosen to preside over the equally-new Community Relations Division, forgoing the normal protocol that saw Captains serve in a Divisional Patrol position. 
The Boyle Heights Evergreen Cemetery Voting Precinct?
** KCAL/KCBS Investigated Reporter David Goldstein in his latest installment, finds that Los Angeles County shares some "dead polling proclivities" with the State of Illinois Cook County. Not surprisingly, the majority of the Dead Voters were Democrats ..........., and some cast their ballot by mail. Most longtime political consultants will agree that the best way to bridge the Polling Place to those seeking to cast a vote from the "After Life", is by the Absentee Ballot. This fact may be why the Princeton-educated CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar has proposed that ALL City Elections be facilitated by Mail  Thus, come the time when the termed-out Officeholder seeks to become Mayor, then all he has to do is send a ballot to his Evergreen Cemetery Voting Base ;) ;).
Youth for the Berning Man.
** With yesterday's deadline to register to cast a ballot in the upcoming June 7 Primary, we are hearing reports that a certain Charter School was a site for a last minute Voter Registration Drive by one of the Campaigns. Most would agree that all Public Schools should remain Neutral Ground ......., to be continue.

The People's "Berning Man" Sanders rolls into CD 1's Lincoln Park for Monday Rally (** Morning Update)

With little more that two weeks remaining before the June 7 California Presidential Primary, the surging People's Campaign of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, preps for a Monday Campaign Rally at the City of Los Angeles Council District (Gil Cedillo) One's Lincoln Park. 
The "Berning Man's Campaign" arrives at Lincoln Park.
Morning Update at 7 AM: Media Trucks Galore at Lincoln Park.
Mid-morning gathering of Rally attendees.

** Blogger's Note: As a beautiful Spring afternoon descends into the shadows of evening, a lone truck stands now where tomorrow at around noon, thousands will gather in solidarity with the "Berning Man" of the 2016 Presidentional Campaign, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. With the June 7 California Primary approaching, the surging Presidential Campaign of Sanders is going all out in its battle against embattled Candidate Hillary Clinton. Tomorrow's CD 1's Lincoln Park Rally, most likely planned with the help of Sanders endorser City Councilman Gil Cedillo, should help reinforce the reality that the local Los Angeles Democratic Machine, is divided between the Hilary-supporting Crony Establishment .........., and the Progressive True Believers/ Grass Roots activists. But more important, the choreographed visuals of Monday's Rally will play into the media narrative,  that Hillary is a candidate with issues ............, especially when it comes to likability among the supposed Democratic Party Base----Scott Johnson.
** A Lincoln Park Sanders Rally Parking Advisement: For those driving to Monday's "Berning Man Rally", PLEASE consider arriving early (before 8 AM) because local street parking is acute due to the multitudes of "Big Corporate University of Scandalous Conduct (aka USC) Health Science Campus" Students and Staff, who are NOT USING a new on-site parking garage ..... and adversely impacting Park Parking along Valley Blvd and Mission Road.
Si Se Puede!! Si Se Puede!! ........., in beating Hillary's Phony/Crony Establishment Machine.
The Berning Man with supporter One Bill Gil.
A Pre-Berning Man Rally Song from Steve Earle: "Revolution Starts Now".

HOT Brief on the Questionable, Studio City Neighborhood Council Election Proceedings for Monday

In a reversal of a previous ruling, an Empower LA Neighborhood Council Elections Challenge Panel, reinstated Studio City NC Candidates Eric Preven and Patrice Berlin as the victorious candidates, unseating among others, the infamous "Dangerous Enemy of Freedom (and Fair Elections, allegedly)" Lisa Sarkin.
 "The Dangerous Enemy of Freedom (and Pro-Development Shill)" is "unwanted (officially)" on the Studio City NC by Stakeholders.
Justice prevails (after a second reconsideration) for anti-Development Activists Eric Preven and Patrice Berlin. 
Let Freedom reign once again in Studio City ..........., and may a "Dangerous Enemy of Freedom" forever be tainted for besmirching the character of TRUE neighborhood advocates.
This blog has previously noted the dubious exploits of now FORMER Studio Council Neighborhood Council Member Lisa Sarkin, who has earned the wrath of neighborhood advocates, city-wide, for her role in past acts of retribution, against the likes of former fellow SCNC Board Member Michael McCue and others who stood up against her constant Pro-Development shillings.
In recent times, efforts to remove her, either during the normal NC Election Cycle, or via an attempted Recall process, have narrowly failed to unseat the "Rubber Stamp" for controversial Development Projects such as the Sportsmen's Landing .........., but her Developers (and CD 2 City Councilman Paul Krekorian)-sanctioned antics, finally reached the tipping point during the just-completed April SCNC Elections.
Challengers Patrice Berlin and Eric Preven (also a former CD 2 Candidate), were the top two vote recipients, beating out Sarkin for the available two seats in the "Employee/Independent Contractor Catagory" ........., but the "Powers to Be (aka Friends of Sarkin)", concocted a scheme to usurp the will of the Stakeholders.
According to the LA Times, associates of Sarkin, filed multiple Election Challenges, that made allegations against Berlin and Preven, that the duo were involved in illegal Electioneering within the Polling Location. Further, officials with Empower LA, impaneled a RARE Grievance Committee, made up of the trio of Boyle Heights NC President Vera del Pozo, Historic Highland Park NC President Monica Alcarez and Eagle Rock NC President David Greene (all noted City Council PLUM Committee Chairperson Jose Huizar supporters), who ruled against the recommendation of Empower LA staff, and disqualified Berlin and Prevan, in a dubious (and questionably legal process) that made Kangaroo Courts look dignified.
But in documentation submitted by the duo of Berlin and Preven, to the Office of Mayor Eric Garcetti and City Attorney Mike Feuer which raised serious questions about the objectivity (and the veracity of the allegations) regarding the actions taken against the duo  Its obvious that Empower LA was placing itself in legal trouble, especially when an alleged statement, submitted as part of the testimony collaborating the charges of Electioneering, are refuted by its supposed LAPD Officer witness, as noted below.
On Apr 19, 2016, at 10:25 PM, MICHAEL LEWIS <31575 lapd.lacity.org=""> wrote:“Patrice,All I know is that I saw you in the hallway of Walter Reed Middle school during the night of the election and we said hello to each other. We probably talked for less than a minute. It is then I heard somebody (I don’t know who it was) say that it was against the rules for you to still be there because you were a candidate in the election. You then quickly said goodbye and left.If this is what they are referring to as inappropriate electioneering, I need to talk to somebody because that is ridiculous. This is the only time I saw you all evening and I did not witness any inappropriate electioneering. I don’t know what the rules of inappropriate electioneering is but its the only time I saw you.I am off tomorrow but I’m back on Thursday. I will also call Stu Miller. I’m reluctant to get involved in theses type of situations but I also don’t appreciate somebody speaking on my behalf, especially when it’s untrue.Who can you suggest I contact or call in an attempt to remedy this or at least give my side of the story? Or who told you last night that you can’t remedy this situation, call witnesses or remedy the situation?Mike

Thus,  contradictions in the evidence against Berlin and Preven, as exampled above (and legal pressure), may be why Empower LA took the drastic step to reconvene the Election Challenge Panel on May 9, 2016 .........., and the results were to rescind the Disqualification of Berlin and Preven (who was stilled found to have engaged in Electioneering, but given only a Written Reprimand).

We're on Bloggin (and Work) Assignment ......., again

We begin the latest bloggin (and work) week with pending assignments, meeting deadlines later today .........but meanwhile, we remain cognizant of musing content regarding a certain Highland Park "Avenue 50 and York Mercado (ie. Councilman Huizar self-marketing event)" that took place, with tepid turnout, over the weekend----Scott Johnson.

A TGIF (on Saturday) Debrief on Protesting Hillary's East Los Angeles Pandering

The Main Stream Media loves to promote the divisions within the Republican Party, but Thursday's Protest of Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton's East Los Angeles College Rally, showcased that there is currently No Unity in the Community among the factions within the local Democratic Political Machine.

Enabling Hillary and Tonto Huizzy do Cinco de Mayo Campaign Fundraising

As former Impeached President Bill and enabling Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton panders across Los Angeles for Campaign Contributions, we ponder if the aspiring first Woman President will take a pause to review documentation regarding past, alleged Sexual Assaults via today's Campaign Fundraiser Co-host CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar?  
Another dubious distinction for the Princeton Graduate, CD 14 Officeholder.
** Blogger's Note: Great Cinco de Mayo to all as we celebrate another anniversary of our "Neighbors to the South (and financial supporters in the then small Ciudad de Los Angeles)" role in blunting the expansion of the Democratic Slave Culture via their French surrogates, at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Thus, helping Republican United States President Abraham Lincoln preserve the Union. That said, its fitting that today, another skirmish against the 21st Century Democratic Party's "Dependent Enslavement/Crony Capitalist Establishment", is being played out across the City of Los Angeles, targeting its supposed Plantation Leaders Bill and Hillary Clinton. This afternoon, the wife (and aspiring first Woman President) of former Impeached President Bill Clinton, will be pandering to the masses at East Los Angeles College .........., before attending a evening Fundraiser, co-hosted by CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar (Hillary cough, cough ........, and more coughs).  Mrs. Clinton, who some have opined as being "THE SMARTEST WOMAN IN THE WORLD", must of had (along with her Campaign Team), a momentary lapses of reason, when approving of a Fundraising Event, co-hosted by a local Princeton Graduate Politico .......... with "Husband Bill-like Women Issues (and an enabling, Hillary-like spouse, allegedly)".  We take note in the invite below, that the location of tonight's gathering, was "still to be determine (supposedly in the Downtown LA area), which prompts us, in the spirit of cyber cooperation, to recommend a Pasadena location that the current CD-14 Officeholder knows well. If the presumptive Democratic Presidential Nominee is true to her words in the video below regarding Sexual Assault, then she can be a POWERFUL voice, empowering those who have been subjective to the alleged horrors of inappropriate Sexual Conduct (as outlined in the Pasadena Police Report obtained via a Public Records Act Request) .........., that's unless those inconvenient moments of infidelity (or worse) by a straying spouse (or campaign supporter/fundraiser), gets in the way of personal, political ambition ----Scott Johnson in CD 14.
Information regarding tonight's "Conversation with Hillary Fundraiser", co-hosted by Jose Huizar.

Would Hillary Clinton be a voice for a certain Burke Williams Spa Employee, who filed the Pasadena PD Complaint below against her tonight's Fundraiser Co-host in 2005?

A Morning Brief on Biological (and Political) Inbreeding via Steve "Mini Riordan I" Soboroff

The failed Political Replication of former Mayor Richard Riordan, now Police Commissioner Steve "Mini Riordan I" Soboroff, again highlights his Political DNA Linkage to LA's former top officeholder, by inserting "Foot in Mouth" while describing the alleged biological similarities of a Donald Trump Rally attendees.    
Fail Mayoral Candidate, now LAPD Commission Member Steve "Mini Riordan I" Soboroff.
** Blogger's Note: The following is a quick bloggin dissertation on the follies of Political Replications as exampled, again, by former failed Mayoral Candidate, now LAPD Commissioner Steve "Mini Riordan I" Soboroff. Longtime political observers will remember that the noted Frontperson of the Playa Vista Development, was former Mayor Richard Riordan's choice to succeed him upon completing his Second Term in 2001, but fail to make the Runoff where James Hahn defeated the then Antonio Villaraigosa. The similarities between Riordan and Soboroff in community endeavors, political philosophy, and mannerisms, has garnered the current Police Commissioner the bloggin moniker of "Mini Riordan I", especially when he inserts "foot in mouth, via tweets", just as the former Mayor did on multiple occasions before the Era of Social Media. Judging from the tweet below, "Mini Riordan I" was channeling the mindset of the late (and disgraced) former CBS Football Commentator (and Gambler) Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder, in giving his thoughts on the alleged biological linkage of those who attended a recent Donald Trump Rally in Indiana. Its apparent via the silence from Mayor Eric Garcetti, that racial stereotyping/commentary regarding alleged inbreeding practices involving White People, is acceptable speech for his Mayoral Appointees. But we bloggin DARE note that if the rally attendees were Black, Asian, Latino, Indigenous or Female .........., then at this moment, there would be one less "Mini Riordan" serving in any official capacity within the City of LA----Scott Johnson.

BREAKING NEWS!! Ted Cruz ceases Campaign, Hillary losing to Sanders in Indiana

The true Conservative Hope to win the 2016 Republican Presidential Nomination, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, suspends his Campaign making it all but certain that Donald Trump will be the GOP Standard Bearer in November .........., while Hillary Clinton trails Socialist Bernie Sanders in the aftermath of today's Indiana Primary.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz bows out with grace.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton filling the BERN ......, again.
** Blogger's Note: In a historic evening, Texas Senator Ted Cruz announced the suspension of his Campaign, after today's loss in the Indiana Primary to the presumptive November GOP Standard Bearer Donald Trump ........, but California still matters (Hillary cough, cough), for Democrats,  as the wife of Impeached President Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, is filling the BERN again, trailing Vermont Socialist Bernie Sanders in the tally of ballots within The Hoosier State-----Scott Johnson. 


Morning Briefs on the Pending June Election Proceedings for Tuesday

In the weeks leading up to the June Primary, the Mayor Sam Blog will remain fixated on keyboarding coverage regarding the local election proceedings ..........., while musing on the local Political Machine theatrics regarding the 2016 Presidential Elections.
Local Elections Matters, especially when selecting Quality Future Judges such as David Berger.
Our Votes Matters ........., as always.
Yet in 2016, a rare Political Blue Moon occurrence may take place as voters in the "Greece on the Pacific (formerly the Golden State of California)", may have a decisive role on the Presidential Selection Process (especially if Ted Cruz pulls a "Hail Mary" in the Indiana Republican Primary today).
For us here at Mayor Sam, the 2016 Election Proceedings had already taken a bloggin, unforeseen diversion when Assemblyman Mike "Slobo Mikey" Gatto dropped out on an uber-anticipated 25th State Senate District blood-letting against former Assemblyman Anthony Portantino.
But instead of musing on the cyber, astro-turfing antics of "Gatto Truthers", we have been blessed with pending content galore on the local Political Machine theatrics, as the communal political factions take sides, in both the Republican and Democratic Primaries.
As witness with last week's RINO Populist (and past Clinton Foundation Contributor) Donald Trump's Costa Mesa Campaign Rally (view video below), there will be those on the Left-Wing fringe, who will exploit (with the help of indoctrinated Public School grads) the blunt immigration commentary (based on testimonials by the likes of Jamiel Shaw) of the bombastic Billionaire (with multiple bankruptcies), turned shallow, political blowhard.
Protest outside of Trump's Costa Mesa Campaign Rally..
That said, we want to remind our cyber audience that this blog will remain true to its focus on the local elections proceedings as exampled in the "David Berger for Judge (which we endorse)" photo above. 
In addition to bloggin Presidential Election coverage, we list below local elections of interest that will merit cyber-musing in the days leading up to the June Primary.
** The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisor District Four and Five Elections: Can termed-out Supervisors Mike Antonovich and Don Knabe help their staffer underlings/candidates, succeed them on the increasing Labor-leaning LA County-governing entity?
** 39th Assembly District Election: Will current Assemblywoman Patty Lopez prove to the Political Pundits that her epic 2014 Upset of Raul Bocanegra, was no fluke?
** 25th State Senate District Election: Even without Assemblyman Mike Gatto, this open seat contest between Anthony Portantino and termed-out LA County Board of Supervisor Mike Antonovich, should provide a barometer on turnout in November.
** 43th Assembly District Election: We would be bloggin remiss if this blog did mot cover the contest to replace the termed-out "Infant Assemblyman", turned "Slobo Mikey" Gatto.
We can also keyboard that other races will show up on our bloggin radar screen in the days ahead ......., but until then.

HOT Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisor Candidate known as "CD 12 Councilmember/Police Officer Mitch Fifelander" is reaping the monetary windfall of his Councilmatic Connections, as Developers, Billboard Companies .........., and IBEW donate to an Independent Expenditure Committee, supplementing his top-funded Campaign.  
LA County Board of Supervisor Candidate Mitch "Fifelander".
Its good to be a Spring Street RINO!!
As we enter the month leading up to California's June Primary Elections, the lone token non-Democratic Member of the Los Angeles City Clowncil Central Committee Mitch Englander, is reaping the Special Interests Largess of his 200 Spring Street dealings as Developers, Big Billboard ........, and "Boss D'Arcy Rizzo's" IBEW donate to an Independent Expenditure Committee, benefiting the "Councilmember/Police Officer Fifelander Campaign" for the LA County Board of Supervisor Seat being vacated by termed-out Supervisor Mike Antonovich. 
In the latest tally of Campaign Contributions, the "Fifelander for Supervisor Campaign" showcased the benefits of being connect by blood, to the Englander, Knabe & Allen Consulting/Lobbyist Machine, as it reported $1.2 Million Dollars in contributions. 
But more telling are the monetary/future and past favors payments to an IE Committee, benefiting the current CD 12 Clowncil Central Committee Officeholder, as the LA Times notes.

The largest contributors to the committee set up to support Eng Fifelander came from International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 11 and from fitness studio owner Janet Crown, who both gave $50,000.

........., a fact DWP ratepayers/City of Los Angeles-residing voters in the campaign to replace Supervisor Antonovich, should take notice of before casting their ballots.

LA County District Four Board of Supervisor Candidate Steve Nopalitano.
The issue of questionable ballot designations is not only endemic to the LA County District Five Board of Supervisor Campaign.
Out-going District Four Supervisor Don Knabe aide/scheduler/deputy/and his endorsed choice to replace him Steve Nopalitano, was a recipient of a legal request by the Dr. Ralph Pacheco Campaign, to have his Ballot Designation reflect his actual "Deputy Duties".

Pacheco is asking that (Judge) O'Donnell order Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan to reject Napolitano’s paperwork and order Napolitano’s title on the ballot be changed to reflect the true scope of his duties as a field deputy in Knabe’s Torrance office, one of several offices the supervisor maintains throughout the district.  Although named as a defendant Logan will not render opposition in court.

......, in the spirit of compromise, we offer the following; "The smarter Candidate than Challenger Challenger Janice Babs Hahn" (but then that would be true of most of "Bab's past/current/and future challengers).
