RIVERSIDE’S OWN THREE STOOGES: SHEMP BAILEY, LARRY BARBER AND THE INCOMPARABLE AND GOD LIKE (ACCORDING TO RPOA PRESIDENT BRIAN SMITH) MOE DIAZ!  ANOTHER EPISODE OF MALICE IN THE PALACE AT CITY HALL?

 FRONT

THE JULY 22, 2014 COUNCILMAN MIKE SOUBIROUS HEARING INVESTIGATING CHARTER VIOLATIONS AND A HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENT BY CITY MANAGER SCOTT BARBER AND CHIEF OF POLICE SERGIO DIAZ RESORTING TO PREFIDIOUS THIRD PARTY INFORMATION. (CLICK THIS LINK TO VIEW ON YOUTUBE).  ALSO NONE OF THE INTERVIEWEES WERE SWORN OATH.  SECONDLY, GUMPORT MASTAN FAILED TO UPHOLD SOUBIROUS “DUE PROCESS” BY OUR US CONSTITUTION’S FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT.  IT APPEARS THAT THIS LAW FIRM ATTEMPTED TO “WING” IT.

WE SAW THE RUSH TO JUDGEMENT BY THE THREE…THE THREE STOOGES IN THE COUNCILMAN MIKE SOUBIROUS INVESTIGATIONAL DEBACLE, BUT WHAT ABOUT COUNCILMAN PAUL DAVIS?  WAS THERE A PROBLEM REGARDING THE PAUL DAVIS INVESTIGATION?  The City of Riverside’s contract with the law firm Gumport Mastan was signed and dated a day before it should have been voted on it in closed session by council for the following day.  This opens up the question, have there been other instances of criminal activity such as this with reference to Brown Act violations.  Is this conspiratorial behavior a pattern with certain council members and staff?  Is signing a contract before council approving a contract a commong practice?  The April 14, 2014 document below displays City Manager Scott Barbers thanks to Councilmember/Mayor ProTemp Steve Adams and Mayor William “Rusty” Bailey.  I find this rather eGREGious in the fact that the very next day City Attorney Greg Priamos placed the issue to be heard on April 22, 2014 in a Closed Session conference.

Now remember the Closed Session meeting of which the Councilman Paul Davis is to be heard is on April 22, 2014.  What happens next, is again eGREGious is that the contract with the Los Angeles Law Firm of Gumport Mastan is signed April 21, 2014, the day before the hearing!  Of course it was eGREGiously solidified by our City Attorney Greg Priamos.  Should he be disbarred?

On April 22, 2014, one of these two closed session items below were to discuss Councilman Paul Davis’s Investigation.

We believe that this investigation was hatched, plotted and conducted totally behind closed doors.  There were “Secret Meetings” at hand.  There are generally three topics that keep public official’s discussion of any topic behind closed doors – and even those sessions are audio recorded in case of lawsuit or other court order.  They are union bargaining, discussing employee performance/adverse action such as punishment for wrong-doing and potential/pending lawsuits against the City.  That’s about it.  Conduct of elected officials IS NOT on that list.  And employees that file complaints are not on that list – only THEIR job performance, not anything or everything related to there employment such as filing against their boss or elected officials.
 
The City conducted “Secret Meetings” all at taxpayer expense to ensure that Diaz’ and Barber’s job positions were secure.  That’s the bottom line here.  Quite remarkable!  Diaz is already receiving a pension from LAPD for almost a quarter million!  The unfortunate double dipping continues with the new hiring of the Fire Chief Michael D. Moore!  Is this a continuing saga in how the unions can allow retirement pensions at an early term, then most employees, of course are not really ready to retire, so they go for another position somewhere else!  Is Double Dipping a new blood sport for public employees, because of unions?  This is another aspect of the abuse of taxpayer monies, which of course, doesn’t occur in the private sector!  I have nothing against the guy, but if you are going to retire, retire… most don’t, it only appears as another opportunity to start all over again, to take more taxpayer money.  Shame on him if this is the case.  My point is, that the retirement system is broken and open to abuse by public employees!

So if acceptable to discuss and plot behind “Closed Doors,” then why was it suddenly okay to bring it before the public (The Soubirous’ “Hearing”)?  And, if it something that can be discussed in open session (which it was on July 22nd) then why was it even discussed at all behind closed doors?  Can’t have it both ways.  RPOA President, Sergeant Brian Smith says in his first Council appearance that he met with City Manager Scott Barber and Chief of Police Sergio Diaz,  and they decided to investigate.  In Barber’s memo in the Davis’ investigation, he closes with his memo to Beetle Bailey and the Mr. Liability himself, Adams – “Thank you for investigating” this.  Wow, all these were decided BEHIND CLOSED DOORS – “Secret Meetings” before it went to Council – who heard this behind closed doors  “Secret Meetings.”  Cover Up at City Hall.  Or maybe Monte “City” Hall – what’s behind Door #1?  Let’s Make A Deal Show… SICK!  Folks we have something more egregious than Bell.  Eat your heart out Cindy Roth, no more taxpayer hand outs!
 
So what we have is the Clowns on the Cowncil bought into a plan that was hatched behind closed doors.  Scott, Sergio, Steve and Rusty all collaborated in Illegal Secret Meetings to craft, orchestrate and design how they would each file – they went to their respective (disrespective) offices and crafted “complaint” memos, after knowing what each other had just discussed – Holy Conspiracy Batman!
 
THE DOUBLE HIGH BALL AT MARIO’S PLACE, DID IT CURE THE RESIDENTS PAIN OF THEIR EXCESSIVE TAXES AND FAUX DROUGHT RESTRICTIONS?  NO, NO, NO CHIEF DIAZ! WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT MENS BALLS…IT’S “HIGH BALL”, IT’S A DRINK..

Councilman Mike Gardner came into a high-falutin bar known as Mario’s Place Restaurant on University Avenue, with what was reported as an “angry” or “agitated” demeanor and ordered up a “High Ball.”   He sucked it down in a one gulp, placed his glass firmly on the bar, and quickly and asked the bartender to get him another…  He drank that one down in a quick gulp sitting again, paid his bill and left….  With two high balls under the Councilman’s belt, did he leave to do the work of the people driving off into the sunset DUI’ing on his Segway?

By the way, this is what we call hearsay, TMC received this by first party information, but sometimes the city would like to deal with third party information, as in the Soubirous investigation, as if it was first party information.  Was he sober on this train?  Council member’s, be very careful of about what bar you’re patronizing and who is sitting next to you, it could be a good friend of Vivian’s.
 

COUNCILMAN MIKE GARDNER’S DRINK RECIPE FOR A “HIGH BALL” IS AS FOLLOWS:

Instructions

Simple as the highball may be, it’s not without principles:

Use a tall — at least 12 ounces — narrow-mouthed glass (which preserves the bubbles). Put in the ice — 2 or 3 cubes are plenty. Some Brits prefer theirs without ice. Let ’em go it on their own hook.

Next, pour your chosen liquor — the highball began as a whiskey drink, but soon became less exclusive — over the ice. Don’t slug it: it’s better to have two pleasant belts than one knuckle-duster (although if the drink’s potency is the result of a bartender’s kindness, it would of course be churlish to kick about it). For normal use, 2 or 3 ounces should do nicely.

Finally, pour in the sparkling water (club soda or seltzer). If at all possible, this should be refrigerated in order to keep the ice from melting prematurely and drowning the bubbles. How much fizz? Less than twice the amount of hooch is too strong, more than three times too weak.

No need to stir — if the water’s got any life left in it, the bubbles will take care of that. In any case, avoid stirring with metal, which is supposed to “squelch” the bubbles. “If one of your guests is stir-crazy,” our 1949 Handbook for Hosts advises, “give him a plastic or glass swizzle stick.” In any case, serve it up immediately.
