The John Burnard Story, was this a tragic story that had to happen?  Was it inevitable?  It seems it’s an unfortunate exposure to what all Riversidian’s have experienced in are not so great city when it comes to establishment politics.  Riverside’s Own Elitist Organization ‘The Raincross Group,’ the ‘Riverside Chamber of Commerce’ run by no other than Queen Bee Cindy Roth, and her husband, who allegedly padded his law bills to the City of Riverside with no contracts, is now Senator Richard Roth, who prefers to go by…. the Generalissimo … the incomparable General Roth.   A General who does not protect his taxpaying troops, but instead throws his taxpaying troops into the line of fire with increased taxes!  Yep, directly as a result of a bribe by former Governor ‘Moonbeam’ Brown himself to support his efforts, remember the gas tax?  So the question is , was it inevitable that the Riverside church going elitist chose someone as Burnard to replace former Councilman Steve Adams, who also had the alleged issue of domestic violence? Now, from wearing out his welcome with the County of Riverside and San Bernardino, Adams was whole heartily accepted back again to replace Burnard on the Riverside Council seat.

ADAMS ARREST 1994 KANSAS

What seems more relevant is the indoctrination of an individual colleague through alleged coercion.  Councilman Mike Soubirous, even though he received the wrath of the establishment attempting to frame him for an undue crime, he succumbed recently, and in turn voted for Adams to replace Burnard.  Adams who’s legacy will be remembered by allowing his constituents to die do to contaminated soil in his Ward, which he was very much aware of.  A law suit on this matter is being taken up by the Brokovich Firm.

A connection between Councilman Steve Adams and the newly christened candidate John Burnard?  A rigging of an election?

Burnard was destined to be the replacement for Adams by the Riverside Political Elite.  There was no doubt that Burnard’s historical actions were to come to a head.  Was Burnard’s grave error that it didn’t happened in the City of Riverside?  Where the elite and RPD could have made an attempted cover up as they did in the past, as they attempted to do with former Chief of Police Russ Leach?  Some call it s Political Machine.  Some call it the Cultural Elite in action.  Some call it a Culture of Entitlement.  This so called refined group of people are electable not only by default, but by those who have been there historically… those who have been politically ingrained within the political system, hence those who will continue their legacy.

But what concerns me is who knew what and when did they know it?  Well they all did and all are to guilty of perpetrating a culture of covering up each others dirty laundry, while supporting the narrative of truth, family, justice, God and the American way.  What those in the position of power who have benefited from the taxpayer, must ask what their legacy will be.  What will they be remembered for.  Did they do the right thing?  Did they have the courage to do the right thing?  Did they just withered away, and succumbed to the establishment, because it was easier than fighting and sacrificing for the rights of the residents and their tax money.

Riverside Ward 7 Councilman John Burnard with wife Kathy by his side is sworn in to office by The Honorable Cheryl C. Kersey, Superior Court Judge, San Bernardino County Tuesday in Riverside, June 30, 2015.

It’s a real tragedy for this individual, but the real tragedy of is for the taxpayer who always gets the bill.  But it’s typical as you can see with the usual suspects when it comes to the elite ruling class subjects who have given there christening and monies to continue there controlled legacy.  Is the real tragedy about this sequence of events by those who have power and control to chain of events which the end result would be the rigging of an election?  Or is the real tragedy is to support an individual who may not be truly qualified, or is it that they all have known who Burnard really was?  Bottom line, they had to.  Even Developer Henry Cox supported Burnard!

    

Even Developer Henry Cox who supported Burnard admitted Ag Park Parcel he planned for a housing development was contaminated as TMC has indicated in past postings.  What was he hoping to receive in some sort of support from Burnard?  Remember, prior Councilman Steve Adams did nothing. Mayor Bailey did nothing!  Remember that in the next election.

The real tragedy is how the City of Riverside have not been good stewards of the taxpayer money, and have not been good stewards of the utility monies, and have negotiated unsustainable union contracts, and caused legal liabilities.  All because of incompetence, unqualified and greed only to fill their own pockets when the taxpayers weren’t looking.

Is the real game for this elite culture is to provide an illusion of government that works, but doesn’t, simply because it’s under the guise of a democratic representation?  What gives?  Is this a system designed to build a financial treasure chest off the taxpayer for two pensions!  Maybe yes!  What gives?  This is what it seems, make no mistake about it.  One example is our Chief of Police Sergio Diaz, working on his second pension. In the real world this does not occur under any circumstance.  It is simply unsustainable via cost.  to retire early only to work elsewhere

What we have is a group of establishment elite who truly believe they know best, but at the same time creating unsustainable union contracts which down the line, as now, cannot be paid for.  Cities will continue to go bankrupt directly because of this behavior, and the State of California will go bankrupt as a whole.  People and businesses will continue to leave California for this reason leaving them with an economic crash which will not be revitalized.  It is unacceptable to continue to tax the residents for a cartel which has hijacked our government.

The purpose of government was to keep an eyeful watch over taxpayer resources, what is the purpose of government when it only benefits elite public worker pensions and the unions?  It seems that those within the government system are their to fight and protect their own as oppose to protect the very system that employs them.  It seems that that those in the public service realm are their to feed of the taxpayer trough, and to them, it should be vehemently protected, by any means possible.

Feeding Off the Taxpayer Trough?

The Arizona domestic violence trial of former Riverside City Councilman John Powell Burnard, was scheduled for April 9, 2018, has been postponed to July 30, according to Mohave County Superior Court. Burnard, 52 at the time, was arrested July 3, 2017, in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, after witnesses said they saw Burnard choking two women after an argument at a bar; their names were redacted from the police report. Burnard is married.  Burnard pleaded not guilty to two counts of aggravated assault by domestic violence.  One is a Class 4 felony, and the other is a Class 6 felony.  In Arizona, Class 1 is the most serious felony, and Class 6 is the least serious felony.  Was this the dirty little secret the establishment status quo ruling class knew about, but exposed itself in an undue fashion?

UPDATE: According to a August 17, 2019 article by Ryan Hagen in the Press Enterprise, charges were dropped against Burnard.  The County Attorneys Office stated that they lost contact with material witnesses that were necessary to prove the State’s case.  Even though Burnard was ecstatic that the charges were dropped, the County Attorneys Office went on to say that the charges were dropped without prejudice, meaning that Burnard could be charged again until the seven year statue of limitations expires.

Is this what happens when those of the ruling class elite completely self assured that no one else will be elected unless you’ve been given their christening?  Can this be construed as the rigging of an election?  Was this what Soubirous was talking about in this video.

Remember what happened when Soubirous didn’t follow the rules, the ruling status quo elite attempted to frame him on false charges by some members of the Council, the Police Union and the Chief of Police.  We’ve seen this with School Board Member Joseph Barragan to frame and defame through efforts of Gabriela Plascensia, the Teachers Union and even a local Congressman.  We’ve seen this when tax advocate Vivian Moreno worked with former Moreno Valley Mayor Jessie Molina.  We have also seen this with Donald Trump in Washington D.C. with the infamous Russian Hoax and weaponizing are FBI and CIA to spy on presidential candidate.

In the City of Riverside on July 22, 2014, Council held a hearing investigating the Councilman Mike Soubirous regarding charter violations and a claim of a hostile work environment by City Manager Scott Barber and Chief of Police Sergio Diaz.  What was found was that Council actually violated the Brown Act by holding this meeting, and council voted not to vote, except Councilman Perry, who actually voted in favor of violating the Brown Act a second time.  The full circus act is hear for your viewing pleasure below.  This has great similarities of how the Democratic based commissions attempted and continued to frame our President Donald J. Trump.  As I said before this nothing less than a soft coup d’état at a local city level.

GRAND JURY COMPLAINT FILED JULY 20, 2015 (CLICK ABOVE IMAGES TO ENLARGE)

On July 20, 2015, the Riverside County Grand Jury received the following complaint filed by former Riverside Deputy City Attorney Raychele Sterling.  The Officials in the complaint are Council members Mike Gardner, Chris Mac Arthur and John Burnard; Mayor William “Rusty” Bailey and City Clerk Colleen Nicol.

2014-gardner  2013-macarthur  2015-burnard  untitled-2  2013__11__nicol-300x300

On July 14, 2015, Councilmen Gardner, MacArthur and Burnard voted to approve a motion made by MacArthur and seconded by Gardner to accept the Mayor’s Nominating Screening Committee (“Screening Committee”) recommendations for regional organization assignments.

The vote was a tie, 3 for approval and 3 against, which was broken by Mayor Bailey in support of acceptance of the recommendation. One of the recommendations therein was that Mayor Rusty Bailey serve as the member of Riverside County Transportation Committee (“RCTC”) with Councilman Melendrez as the alternate. This recommendation was in direct contradiction of the Rules of Procedure and Order codified in Resolution No. 22796 (“Rules”) adopted by the City Council and executed by Mayor Rusty Bailey on January 27, 2015, in that the senior Councilmember, Melendrez, had indicated his preference for the member position as required by the Rules.  The rule states as follows:

To the greatest extent possible for Standing Committee and regional organization appointments, preference of senior Councilmembers shall be honored. Councilmembers shall forward preferences on Standing Committee assignments to the City Clerk to be shared at the Mayor’s Nominating and Screening Committee.

Well folks this didn’t happen.  The senior Council member on board was Andy Melendrez, and it was his preference to stay on board. The three council votes plus the breaking Mayors vote discounted Council member Melendrez’s request. On the other hand, the question arose, was Melendrez holding on to a senior position meant that he could hold on to the position indefinitely, which means that very act could be a problem, after all he was on four boards.

Regardless, the Rules mandate that the RCTC member position be assigned to the most senior Council member, Melendrez. It is also important to note, that the Rules do not provide for a preference to be submitted by the Mayor, only the City Council. Therefore, any assignment preferences made by the Mayor should have been immediately rejected by the City Clerk and not forwarded to the Screening Committee for review and consideration. The City Clerk’s actions of forwarding the assignment preference of the Mayor to the Screening Committee was outside the scope of her authority granted by Resolution No. 22796.

To add further drama to the picture, during his introduction of the agenda item, Mayor Bailey inappropriately interjected his perceived qualifications for the member position, noting a letter of recommendation drafted on his behalf by Supervisor John Tavaglione, for whom he had worked as a legislative aide while employed by the County of Riverside. It is also believed that Mayor Bailey is a close personal friend of Supervisor Tavaglione’s, often socializing with him and his family.  Again, the City Clerk’s action of providing this letter to the Screening Committee and including it in the City Council Agenda packet was inappropriate and outside the scope of her authority under Resolution No. 22796. Complainant believes that Supervisor Tavaglione’s attempt to influence the committee assignments in violation of Resolution No. 22796 is indicative of the incestuous relationship between certain “chosen” elected officials of the City and the County Board of Supervisors and constitutes yet another act of political favoritism and cronyism that has plagued both the County and the City of Riverside for years.

Did we have an concerted orchestrated attempt to take over, or simply a political coup d’État, to change the players in this Chess game, in order to ensure future favorable outcomes?  Our the Riverside County Supervisors part of the problem or all of the problem?  I Rusty Bailey wants to sit on that board, he should have changed the rules of the resolution which he actually executed back in January of 2015!  Instead he skipped the step, and in doing so violated his own resolution.  Sorry, can’t do that.

FROM THE DESK OF SCOTT SIMPSON REGARDING THE INFORMATION DISCLOSED BY HIRED UCR TOXICOLOGIST BOB KRIEGER AND THE HANDLING OF THE AG PARK SPILL:

SEWER03122015

Scott Simpson was the former Chief of Enforcement for the California EPA Department of Toxic Substances Control, and also worked for the Department of Food and Agriculture in their Environmental Hazards Assessment Program specializing in ground water contamination.

Our Courts have ruled in criminal environmental cases that, omitting information critical to the event under review is a form of lying to the government. Sometimes it is charged as lying to a federal investigator and in other cases it has been a charge of falsifying federal documents or reports.
Leaving out of any communication with your employees or public, the pertinent facts that could way heavily on their health could be charged as a crime. So, lying by omission is what our city did. They left out all the information about the health hazards posed by exposure to all the other hazardous waste ingredients in the sludge. They had the knowledge but, instead hired an “Expert” to tell the employees that PCBs are not that toxic. The obvious question is, “Why are PCBs classified in federal and state law as Hazardous Waste? It is because, PCBs are dangerous to your health and the environment! Congress passed the TOSCA statute in the late 1970s specifically to stop the manufacture and use of PCBs in America! What the city never told anyone is, that PCBs contain other more dangerous chemicals from the manufacturing process called, Dioxins and Furans. These are the toxins of concern in this discussion. There are others to worry about at Ag Park too.

UPDATE: DTSC IS SCHEDULED TO MEET WITH THE CITY OF RIVERSIDE FRIDAY JULY 24, 2015 WITH REFERENCE TO CLEARANCE DOCUMENTS FOR AG PARK.  WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED OF THE RESULTS.  ROCK STAR RUSSO SEEMED TO BE PERTURBED THE LAST TIME DTSC WAS IN TOWN, BECAUSE THEY ACTUALLY WANTED HEAR FROM THE PUBLIC AND DID NOT WANT TO MEET WITH THE CITY.  DOES ROCK STAR RUSSO GO BY ANOTHER NAME WHILE IN OAKLAND CALIFORNIA?  STAY TUNED TO TMC, BECAUSE WE HAVE IT….
