Yucca Valley Town Council and Others in High Office Conspired and Carried-Out the Beating and Attempted Murders of Local Blogger, Artist and Writer

In 2009, Yucca Valley mayors Dawn Rowe and Lori Herbel, under the direction of Deputy District Attorney James Adams and assisted by the San Bernardino County Citizens Patrol and Sheriffs Department had me attacked and beaten in the street at their Joshua Tree Saturday outdoor market.

The reasons they did it are still unknown to me but well-discussed among their associates and friends. No judges, juries or cross-examination has occurred. Their motives are simply a secret, not meant for “outsiders.”

To carry out their plan Adams, Rowe and Herbel used local thugs from the local underbelly and cultural sewer system that includes: Stacy Moore, who is the editor of the Hi-Desert Star newspaper. Her job was to intercept and destroy witness testimony. Linda Perry, owner of Joshua Tree Health Foods who hid, provided shelter, alibis and misinformation to benefit her friends who were and are my assailants. And Elise Kost along with her team partner, “The Wolf,” who wielded the weapon. They reside together in their home at 63252 Shift­ing Sands, Joshua Tree, CA.

I have already detailed their crimes in my blog here:  My T-shirt Resistance, Chapter 1 Part 3Perpetrator #1 and My Time in Morongo Basin:1995-2015.

My entire left side had become nerve damaged and limp. So for three and a half years after their attack, I was turned into an object of public display and ridicule, treated as their wounded animal, constantly provoked by the authorities and their underlings, used exclusively as a stark public reminder of authoritarian rule and their criminal enterprise. They soon tired of using me as a semi-disabled object of derision and decided to have me murdered.

So on two subsequent occasions I became the target of murders perpetrated first by a San Bernardino County Citizens Patrol officer and his Joshua Tree Circle K accomplices and then, a second time by “The Wolf” himself.

I have described their first attempted murder here: My T-shirt Resistance, Chapter 2 and Killer-Stalker on the Loose.

I described their second attempted murder here: My T-shirt Resistance, Chapter 3.

I am still under physicians’ care and take medication for ongoing and progressive injury.

When I reported the Citizens Patrol-Circle K attempted murder to an actual sheriff, named Wilson, he threatened to arrest me for being under the influence of drugs and implied that I will be beaten to death in their jail. That was told to my face by that sheriff while during the department’s last murder spree.

Two or three of their inmates had just been hanged to death on mysteriously provided bedding, they had recently run down and shot to death a few citizens in the street and had just finished up raping a bunch of teenage “tryouts.” The San Bernardino Sheriffs still hold the nation’s top spot in the death (by suicide) of female inmates.

To save my skin I immediately reported the sheriff’s interview as well as the assault and attempted murders to the San Bernardino County Grand Jury. The next day all police confrontation stopped but they could not bring charges because the Grand Jury works directly under the District Attorney who will not indict him or herself. So next, I went to the FBI in Riverside, had my interview and filed my report with their agents.

To facilitate the cover-ups the Town Council members employed the services of then Captain Lonnie Miller and Lieutenant Richard Boswell, both now retired. They are the ones who instructed their officers on stonewalling me while harassing, and were directly involved with changing the identity of their employees and re-establishing their residence and employment elsewhere.

Every member of the current Town Council is aware of, is in full knowledge of and is in utter compliance with the crimes committed against my person and my body by their own church and government colleagues. They did it.

Besides the perpetrators themselves, one of the most egregious of those sorry excuses for a human being is the current mayor, Leone. He is a former sheriff so he is well adept at the positions and postures of compliance necessary to operate and succeed in local politics. Criminal conspiracies and cover-ups are no doubt, his forte.

So as they all sit there on their dais, give themselves raises, hand each other awards and stew in the knowledge of their crimes against me and the citizenry of Morongo Basin, their manner of civic activity becomes the essential part of who they are: deluded, vicious, violent, lying, fraudulent, bushwhacking, murderous cowards.

They are also a deeply religious lot, home-grown Christians with a lukewarm pretension of devotion to the teachings of Jesus, their alleged savior. They are Republicans, right-wingers and completely without a plan or vision for the future except to enrich themselves, their families, friends and criminal associatesat the public’s expense. It’s what they like to call, salvation but what others mean by fraud, deceit, bribery, blackmail, assault and battery, sexual perversity, adultery, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder and who knows what else?

If I did to any one of them what they have and continue to do to me, I would been thrown in prison for the rest of my natural life.

Finally, since it is my security, well-being and very life that is being weighed in the balance of local politics, it is only natural to ask a few questions in order to fully understand the impact that the sacrifice my life will serve to enrich this, our loving and noble community:

  1. The involved parties, who all socialize among themselves, would like the community to believe that this matter is simply a personal dispute between friends. Other than buying food in their stores I have never met, been introduced, or been involved with any one of my assailants either in person or in public. Who are these creatures and why have they done such violence to me?
  2. They would like me and the public to believe that it’s no big thing. But if it’s no big thing why are so many really “big” people involved in such a “big” way?
  3. Why are my assailants still walking around, enjoying their lives as they continue to threaten, jeer and harass me even six full years since their attack? Haven’t they taken enough from me? Why do they need my life too?
  4. I would like to know what the actual charges against me are? Why was I beaten in public? Why am I hunted and marked for murder? In other words, what did I do to deserve injury and death?
  5. How are the members, goons and killers of our local death squads rewarded for their services to San Bernardino County’s judiciary, police and legislative staff?
  6. Lastly and most importantly, why do communities as ours encourage such vicious vigilante violence and encourage such brutish ignorance to thrive and prosper the way it does?

Uruguay makes dramatic shift to nearly 95% electricity from clean energy. Can Morongo Basin follow?

“In less than 10 years, Uruguay has slashed its carbon footprint without government subsidies or higher consumer costs, according to the country’s head of climate change policy, Ramón Méndez.

“In fact, he says that now that renewables provide 94.5% of the country’s electricity, prices are lower than in the past relative to inflation. There are also fewer power cuts because a diverse energy mix means greater resilience to droughts…

…”Uruguay gets 94.5% of its electricity from renewables. In addition to old hydropower plants, a hefty investment in wind, biomass and solar in recent years has raised the share of these sources in the total energy mix to 55%, compared with a global average of 12%, and about 20% in Europe.

“Costa Rica went a record 94 consecutive days earlier this year without using fossil fuel for electricity, thanks to a mix of about 78% hydropower, 12% geothermal and 10% wind. The government has set a target of 100% renewable energy by 2021. But transport remains dirty.

“Iceland has the advantage of being a nation of volcanoes, which has allowed it to tap geothermal sources of 85% of its heating and – with the assistance of hydropower – 100% of its electricity. This has made it the world’s largest green energy producer per capita.”

And here: http://www.worldbank.org/en/news/press-release/2012/08/15/uruguay-going-green-diversifying-energy-mix;


Reasons why Morongo Basin is unable to act:

  1. Corrupt and venal elected officials that route all public subsidies to themselves and their friends.
  2. Only Jesus will save us, not Americans or conscious nations or their people.
  3. It creates jobs, independence and education which is contrary to the Republican and Christian values of top-down authoritarianism, slavery, impoverishment, austerity, racism, violence and hell on earth.

Finland to give all citizens $10,000 per year…Could San Bernardino say anything other than, No, No, No!

“The Finnish government, elected earlier this year, is planning to introduce a tax-free monthly payment of 800 euros ($865) to all adult Finns, regardless of income, wealth or employment status. The payment would replace most other state benefits.

“The government thinks that the move will actually save money. Finland’s welfare system is very complex and expensive to run, and the government hopes that simplifying it could reduce costly bureaucracy….”

Why wouldn’t San Bernardino do it? The same three reasons America won’t do it.

    1. Corrupt public officials.
    2. Only Jesus will be the one to save us, not Americans.
    3. Full stomachs create equality and justice which, with fifty million hungry Americans, is obviously forbidden in America, the land of the free and home of the brave.

And that’s why we have the maniacal, psychopathic, violent, war-mongering and criminal policies that we all must live and suffer under. We’re ignorant, hateful and frightful. It’s what makes us loveless, heartless, mindless and thoughtless. We simply follow money like mice to cheese regardless of the trap.

Bernie Sanders defines Democratic Socialism in Georgetown speech

November 19, 2015 – “Democratic socialism means creating a just society in America that provides the kind of rights spelled out in 1944 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont said today at Georgetown.

“He saw one-third of the nation ill-housed, ill-clad and ill-nourished,” explained Sanders to a packed audience of Georgetown students, faculty and staff in Gaston Hall. “And he acted, against the ferocious opposition of the ruling class of his day. … Roosevelt implemented a series of programs that put millions of Americans back to work, took them out of dire poverty and restored their faith in government.”

“Almost every program he produced, every idea he introduced, was called socialist,” Sanders added, to cheers…” — http://www.georgetown.edu/Bernie-Sanders-at-GU-2015.

Read Bernie Sanders’s speech on democratic socialism in the United States:
(Updated by Andrew Prokop on November 19, 2015)

12 Points:

1. Major political and economic reforms.

2. An end to corporate welfare.

3. A national public healthcare system.

4. Tuition-free public colleges and universities.

5. A government that creates jobs, not prisoners.

6. A living minimum wage and real family leave.

7. Stopping climate change-causing industries.

8. The wealthy must pay a fair share of taxes.

9. America’s political system must be a democracy.

10. Democratic socialism is not a government takeover.

11. Equal treatment by government, not racism.

12. Do not become cynical; work for change.

Religious kids are harsher and less generous than atheist ones, study says

By Melissa Binder | The Oregonian/OregonLive

When it comes to teaching kids the Golden Rule, Sunday school might not be the best bet.

A new study in the journal Current Biology found children in religious households are significantly less generous than their non-religious peers.

At the same time, religious parents were more likely than non-religious ones to consider their children empathetic and sensitive to the plight of others.

It’s a common assumption in the United States that faith goes hand-in-hand with goodness. The Pew Research Center reported last year that 53 percent of Americans think it’s necessary to believe in God to be moral.

Americans overwhelmingly elect Christian representatives, and they distrust atheists.

This study challenges those attitudes. It was the children in non-religious homes most likely to be generous toward a stranger. The longer a child had lived in a religious home, the stingier he was compared to his secular peers.
