The Three-Zero Club: Big Momma Cradling Her Two Boys….

BREAKING UPDATE: 01.12.2018: PRESS ENTERPRISE: COUNCILWOMAN VICTORIA BACA FACES SECOND RECALL ATTEMPT: RECALL PAPERS SERVED 01.09.2018: The uncorroborated underground dark rumor is that Councilman David Marquez, Councilman Jeffrey Giba, former Councilwoman Delores LaDonna Jempson and former Councilman George E. Price are allegedly some of the few behind the recall effort.

I guess the story starts here at conception, but was the notion of the children a last minute decision, or a quick romp of nefarious ideas in the back of a 57 Chevy?  Collusion, schemes and dirty deals has plagued the City of Moreno Valley for decades as residents have seen.  The above three seemingly were meant to be, but are the obvious example of lobbying, scandals and corruption associated with political campaign contributions.

That said, this story is not only about the three bumbling idiots in charge,  but the recent firing of Ciy Manager Michelle Dawson and the hiring of Tom DeSantis as new City Manager.  TMC said it first when Vivian Moreno suggested many times that City Manager Michelle Dawson should have been fired years ago for her apparent lack of direction to Council, as indicated by her long track record of nothing.

This is our opinion on the situation:

1.)  Either Michele Dawson had enough and could no longer keep up with the job and wanted out. We also believe that she was in on the deal/bribe to have herself fired.

2.)  OR….. Assistant City Manager Tom Desantis stabbed her in the back and stole her job. He has been shopping around for a City Managers job for years now. No one would hire him!

3.) OR……The fix was in by the collusion of all; Baca, Gutierrez, Cabrera, DeSantis and Dawson.  DeSantis will do what it takes and it may suit Baca’s style, with her two whipping boys in her hip pocket.  Dawson is an anomaly, caught up in a job whereby her qualifications were much to be desired.  The fact remains that DeSantis has been running the show behind the scenes.  DeSantis many times took the podium over Dawson at Council, driving the question as to “Who is really running the store?”  Was it time for Dawson to move on?  With her contract up next year in 2018, why didn’t they allow that contract to expire, let her go before this years ending and pay the rest of the contract?  Instead they renewed her contract in September 2017 till 2020.  So Dawson is terminated, prior to having her contract renewed and prior to receiving favorable work related reviews.  Was this calculated?  Was this in the fix as a gift to keep the silence, and of course, with taxpayer monies?  Now the two threesome, Baca, Gutierrez, Cabrera and DeSantis, Benzeevi, Villaraigosa?  Of course, in reality sense, you all no this wouldn’t happen, but was it their intention? Was it Baca’s intention?

But where does this all stem from?  Back in March 2008, Baca tells The Press-Enterprises it isn’t fair that Moreno Valley city officials are considering accommodating developers by allowing warehouses in an area where schools are planned. The projects include Highland Fairview’s Skecher’s warehouse. “Who would want schools around warehouses that pollute the area with exhaust, traffic and who knows what else?”  Between the years of 2008 and 2009 Baca interestingly enough reports income earned by her and her husband from work as consultants for Highland Fairview, a company owned by developer Ido Benzeevi.  Remarkably, her tune changes January 2009: Baca voices support for the Skechers project before the city Planning Commission, saying it would bring needed jobs: “The children of Moreno Valley deserve to have companies like Skechers come to Moreno Valley.”  June and July 2010: Baca attends closed-door school meetings to discuss Highland Fairview’s request for $500,000 credit toward developer fees.  Yep, for Baca, it’s always about the children.  August, September and October 2010 Baca’s unsuccessful school board re-election campaign receives $14,690.71 in donations, goods and services from the Moreno Valley Taxpayers Association, whose principal backer is Highland Fairview.  November 2012: Baca is elected to the Moreno Valley City Council.  She receives a $2,000 campaign donation from Highland Fairview.  She was then recalled in 2014, and then came back in November 2016 with her boy Gutierrez with huge monies behind them, mainly from one developer.  Incidentally, Baca received $150,000.00 from Highland Fairview to fight the recall effort.  Cabrera, a 22 year old from Texas, suddenly appeared into the picture June 2017, with muncho dinero from that same developer Ido Benzeevi.  He also seems to enjoy doing things without his shirt off; yep he’s all into his abs and coffee beside getting into a little trouble with perjury, the District Attorney’s Office and California Form 700.

 

Baca a prior campaign manager and supporter of former Mayor Jesse Molina later to do an about-turn.  The question then became as to why Council Woman Baca turned the other cheek on former Mayor Jesse Molina when he was making strides on challenging issues that effected the community and concerns which infected Moreno Valley’s City Hall government?  Was it jealously?  Was it simply because he was resolving issues in the community that should have resolved years ago?  Or was it that he allowed Vivian Moreno to come into the picture?   Was Tom and Victoria behind this union debacle attempting to shake down Mayor Jesse Molina to dump administrative volunteer Vivian Moreno?  We did our own story on this issue and found some interesting facts in the relationship of this Union with the City Manager Office.  The letter sent to then Mayor Jesse Molina wasn’t even signed!  No one in the City Managers office had the guts to, or did they know anything about it.  This was eye catching and revealing in this October 11, 2017 Thirty Miles Posting.

The citizens of Moreno Valley always seem to get the raw end of the deal, paying over inflated salaries to under qualified City Managers. But the City Manager job  wasn’t a bad gig for ‘dog catcher,’ Dawson.

The apparent corruption in MoVal appears to be getting more difficult to cover up.  The city has been taken over by special influential interests that are undermining the true political process of the people, (IDDO).  We see this with Councilwoman Victoria Baca’s inherent position in dismantling the ‘Sunshine Act.‘  You can’t control your agenda if you have to be transparent.  There is a reason why Baca would like to do away with allowing the people of Moreno Valley to see council agendas and policies 12 days in advance, as to oppose to 72 hours.  It will now take a council majority vote, which would be the Three Amigos, in order for items to placed on the agenda.  The pattern arises as to why anyone who so called represents people would want to be less transparent, What our they hiding?  What will they receive in return?  Bottom line how can anything get done with transparency!

Former Councilman Jesse Molina, who had called for the change to the Sunshine Act, said he’s disappointed to hear that it could end.  “They will probably reverse everything that was accomplished,” he said.

It didn’t stop there, one rule required council members to report contributions of more than $500 that they’ve received within the past 48 months from a donor if that entity or individual has business before the council.  On October 17, 2017, Baca, Gutierrez  and Cabrera repealed the conflict of interest rules.  If you see how much the three received from Developer Ido Bezeevi you will know why…just follow the money.  All three said the rules were unnecessary because candidates must already report donations in public campaign contribution reports that are filed with the city clerk’s office…go figure.

What does transparency do for the community?  It insures accountability and truth.  Without, you have the conspiracy theories began, the gray areas between truth and fiction.  Is Victoria Baca now the Inland Empire Campaign Manager for Antonio Villaraigosa’s Governership as some eluded to?  Is Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez and Councilman Ulises Cabrera related as Cousins as some have indicated?

But the drama didn’t stop there, Baca filed a police complaint against her brother, Christopher Baca, alleging that he and former Mayor & Councilman Jesse Molina – a candidate for mayor in the Nov. 8 election – tried to break into her house September 12, 2016.  This gets interesting…. is she a loose cannon?  Or Just being Big Mama trying to teach her boys the ways of her corrupt world.  In reality she is making them a laughingstock in the region and no one takes them seriously.

As far as TMC understands the dire situation that is taking Moreno Valley down boils down to this.  Michelle, Tom, Baca and her boys are the fools that will own the further destruction of Moreno Valley.  These people are incapable or unqualified to run the City, with the economic potential of this city decimated.  Desantas deserves Baca and Baca Deserves Desantas.  Tom, you go from BRUNI to BACA REALLY ! Its all down hill from here.

As seen on TMC, newly christened City Manager of Moreno Valley, Tom DeSantis has a questionable past with the City of Riverside and how he handled city business, but it didn’t start there it goes back to the City of San Bernardino.  TMC has the following stories:

1.) JUNE 28, 2011: MORENO VALLEY: EX ASSISTANT CITY MANAGER TOM DESANTIS HIRED BY MORENO VALLEY CITY MANAGER HENRY GARCIA.

2.) MARCH 8, 2016: CITY OF RIVERSIDE: WHO’S THE GIRL WITH THE CURLY HAIR?

3.) JUNE 14, 2011: CITY OF RIVERSIDE: CITY MANAGER BRAD HUDSON RESIGNS! IN 2016 COUNCILMAN PAUL DAVIS STATES HE WAS ‘GET RID OF.’ TMC HAD IT RIGHT ‘HE WAS FIRED!’

I guess the real issue was the fix already in by the MoVal Three, or was the fix on a greater scale that included all?  Even MVGordie felt there was something fishy about who was placed to run for City Council.  Stating in a post, “It is also alleged that the subject Ulises Cabrera started said businesses in furtherance of his planned campaign run for the elected position for the now vacant seat in Councilman District 4 and that said businesses were created to bolster the subjects campaign, along with the false history narratives of residency within Moreno Valley created by the subject with the assistance of Moreno Valley Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez and Moreno Valley Council Member (Mayor Pro-Tem) Victoria Baca.”

August 16, 2017 Gubernatorial candidate Antonio Villaraigosa will speak alongside Moreno Valley Mayor Yxstian Alberto Gutierrez at the State of the City address. Villaraigosa was someone who took the California Bar four times and failed all four times; he preached to the Los Angeles Mexican Community that “we clean your toilets!,” but turned the City of Los Angeles into just that, “A Toilet.”  Tickets for the luncheon are $40 per person, it appears to leave the rift raft out, which would be the taxpayers of the City of Moreno Valley.  We questioned the fact that an event held for the public, become a political and illegal side show.  Leaving the community out because no one would pay the $40 dollars.  We had a similar situation on our neck of the woods, and you bet, we put a stop to that pompous elite and self entitled.

Same day on August 16, 2017, Villaraigosa held a campaign fundraiser — $1,000 for guests and $10,000 for hosts — at ProAbition Kitchen & Whiskey Lounge in downtown Riverside.  Moreno Valley Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez and Moreno Valley Councilman Ulises Cabrera attended.  Wonder who helped pay for their tickets?

Iddo Benzeevi’s company, Highland Fairview, gave $58,400 – the maximum allowed by law in the 2018 election cycle – to Villaraigosa’s gubernatorial campaign on Dec. 1, 2017 state campaign finance records show.  The Moreno Valley City Council approved the World Logistics Center in 2015. It faces legal challenges from environmentalists, who fear the project will worsen already-poor air quality. Critics also argue the project will clog local roads with truck traffic.  Benzeevi and city officials defend the project’s environmental analysis and say the World Logistics Center will generate $2.5 billion annually in economic activity and support 20,000 jobs.  Of course, Baca and her boys were all in for the long hall.  Air quality and the children didn’t seem to come out as an issue.  Villaraigosa, a former Los Angeles mayor and Assembly speaker, praised the project at Moreno Valley’s State of the City Address in August.   Well of course he did…  Villaraigosa, once a property owner in MoVal stated, “I know how important it is to moving goods in this region,” he said at the time.

But is there a possible motive operandi behind diligently courting Villar, especially if he does become Governor of California?  The reason is quite elementary, Brown’s office announced the veto of AB 890 on Monday, Oct. 16.  The bill by Assemblyman Jose Medina, D-Riverside, would have closed a loophole in the California Environmental Quality Act, also known as CEQA, that allows projects approved by voters to bypass the act’s review process.  Having, Villar/Villaraigosa in their ‘hip pocket’ would apparently ensure an unequivocal veto.  Incidentally, Baca and Gutierrez even went to Sacramento to lobby against AB890.  With AB890 vetoed, The Three Amigos could continue there work of ensuring the rest to occur.

Moreno Valley politics is a disaster. The three clowns running the City… Baca, Gutierrez and Cabrera are a visual reflection of what now represents the City of Moreno Valley. The Inland Empire is watching these fools up the hill from Riverside in what is apparently being coined the Mo Val Ghetto Banana Republic. The one thing I can say is the level of corruption in the City of Riverside is much more sophisticated. But really the citizens of Mo Val you deserve better, much better.

But here is the Down and Dirty, back in September 2017 Council extends City Manager Michelle Dawson’s contract till May 2020 — approved Tuesday night, Sept. 5, by the City Council — City Manager Michelle Dawson will stay on until May 2020. Her employment agreement had been set to expire in 2018.  December 2017, City Council fires City Manager Michelle Dawson, and replaces her with Assistant City Manager Tom DeSantis.  It sounds as if Mo Val Three colluded early behind closed doors to pad her salary and pension with the agreement that she would go quietly.  I’m sure Bumbling Council felt a good quiet time would December 19, 2018 during the holidays, when they thought no one would be watching.

I guess the real issue was the fix already in by the MoVal Three, or was the fix on a greater scale that included all?  Even MVGordie felt there was something fishy about the cascade of events which led to the these three attaining their elected position, hence power.  Now we have the MoVal Three Vote, Three-Zero all the way!  MVGordie called it the “Revitalization of the Moreno Valley 3-0 Club.”  Is it me or I’m just seeing the invention of the perfect storm, perfect political storm that is: A possible Governor Antonio Villar, Councilwoman Victoria Baca, Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez, Developer Iso Benzeevi and now City Manager Tom DeSantis?  There are individuals who simply have no true leadership skills and must rig the system in order that it works in their favor.

Street Justice continues with the renaming of ‘Theodore Street’ to ‘World Logistics Parkway’ by The Three Amigos.  Quid Pro Quo continues, again is MoVal losing a bit a history to history yet written?  Is “The World Logistics Center” the figment of ones imagination, an idea that will never transpire.  Is what will transpire the rezoning of land, only to be resold at a higher profit by Highland Fairvew?  Will The Three Amigos unsuspectingly be part of that plan?

MAYOR VILLARAIGOSA CRASH PAD AND INVESTMENT PROPERTY IN MORENO VALLEY 2014, HIS INEPTNESS IN AS L.A. MAYOR CARRIED OVER TO HIS INEPTNESS IN PROPERTY MANAGEMENT.

According to an article in Buzzfeed News, July 15, 2014, records show that the house — which recently featured boarded-up windows, peeling blue and white paint, and cinderblocks in the weed-choked front yard — racked up a series of code violations, including for unmaintained landscaping and discarded junk in the yard.  Former Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa owned the house from 1990 until June of 2014, county records show.  “He’s a slumlord, that’s what he is,” complained Steven Patzer, who lives next door to the small house on Eucalyptus Avenue in the city of Moreno Valley.  What TMC has also learned is that the property may not have all been pretty, but the toilet was immaculate.  Any taxpayer would have been proud to give their sentiments to Villaraigosa and his gang on that prized throne…

IS THERE ANOTHER SIDE TO HIGLAND FAIRVIEW’S IDO BENZEEVI AND HIS PLAN FOR MORENO VALLEY.  HIS SUCCESSES AND FAILURES;  OR SIMPLY  HIS ART AT SUBLIMINAL SEDUCTION?  OR OUR WE DEALING WITH AN EXTRAORDINARY CONFIDENCE MAN?

Building warehousing in Moreno Valley even on the scale of the World Logistics Center isn’t the issue at heart. It’s that a company like Highland Fairview and its owner are not credible at all in the area of development or construction. It’s in effect a fly-by-night group which purchases land cheaply and rezones it in the hope of selling or leasing to other parties in the long term. Neither really has much of any track record of building at all despite being active under one corporate name for over three decades or another.

Is it true that Iddo and his medical doctor brother Benny recently formed a company who tried to redevelop and manage Tulare’s Regional Medical Center and also the Southern Inyo hospital?  Both are now bankrupt, contracts ended, one closed, is it true that the Healthcare Conglomerate Associates or HCCA as depicted in this video is under criminal investigation by the Tulare County District Attorney’s office at present for issues such as financial malfeasance and grand theft of equipment?  Just asking!

TMC thought we had it bad in the City of Riverside, but the City of Moreno Valley beat us by a long shot.

    I noticed Councilwoman Baca attended a recent UCR Lecture on the City of Bell scandal. I wonder if she was attending to learn how avoid a Bell situation, or to pick up pointers on how to avoid getting caught?
