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.

TMC UPDATE: 02.13.2019:  TMC HAS BEEN TOLD BY KEVIN DAWSON THAT COUNCILMAN JIM PERRY CALLED HIM TO APOLOGIZE FOR HIS UNPROFESSIONAL BEHAVIOR WHICH WAS CAUGHT ON AUDIO.  PERRY INCIDENTALLY WILL NOT RUN FOR ANOTHER CITY COUNCIL TERM.

Kevin Dawson Community Proponent and part of the Ward 2 University Neighbor Association stated he has been active member for the last 13 years.  He went to City Council this February 5, 2019 to address them on the issue of ethical bad behavior displayed by three Councilman (the above video.)  He refers to the below February 23, 2016 video of a City Council Meeting: KEVIN DAWSON SKEWERS CITY COUNCIL ON THE SUBJECT OF OUTSIDE LEGAL COUNCIL, by which three City Council Members: Jim Perry, Mike Soubirous and Andy Melendrez refer to this video to mock him prior to being interviewed for a board position.

It all had to do with former City Council Member and former House Cleaner Nancy Hart.  Which goes to show you a whole heap of book learning is not necessary to get on Council.

KEVIN DAWSON THEN SENDS THIS EMAIL OUT TO COUNCIL WITH HIS CONCERNS:

Dear Friends,

I want to share a three minute public comments I gave at the City Council meeting last night, along with audio file and link to a YouTube video.  The audio file is of the Mayor and City Council conversation right before I was lead into the 7th floor conference room at city hall, to be interviewed for the Charter Review Commission. The YouTube link is to a video of my speaking to the Council a couple of years ago, to which one of the Council is heard in the audio, mocking me.

I had made a records request to get an audio recording of that interview to review a statement made by councilman Adams, and found that the recording included the time before I was brought into the room.  They probably thought it was like their closed session meetings and that their conversation would never become public.  I’m sure they probably talk like this all the time when they are in closed session.  This is the Mayor, and Councilmen Gardner, Melendrez, McArthur, Soubirous, Perry and Adams.  Councilman Conder was not in attendance. There was also a deputy City Clerk in attendance, who was there to take minutes and monitor the recording.   Voices that can be heard are Soubirous, Perry, and Melendrez.  Note that no one, including the Mayor, who is the parliamentarian, cautioned or admonished the attendees to refrain from inappropriate conversation.

While this might seem trivial to some, they were sitting as a full council, in city council, acting in their official capacity. It was completely inappropriate and in violation of the City Code of Ethics. We need our elected officials to act professionally and ethically at all times.  We need to know they are always doing the right thing, even when no one is looking.  They are supposed to set the examples as to appropriate behavior to City Staff.

Please circulate.  I would appreciate emails to the Council, asking for a public apology and a reaffirmation to follow the City Code of Ethics.

Mayor Rusty Bailey   rbailey@riversideca.gov; Councilman Mike Gardner   gardener@riversideca.gov ; Councilman Andy Melendrez  asmelendrez@riversideca.gov ; Councilman Mike Soubirous  msoubirous@riversideca.gov ; Councilman Chris McArthur  cmacarthur@riversideca.gov ; Councilman Jim Perry    jperry@riversideca.gov; Councilman Steve Adams   sadam@riversideca.gov

The following is the actual before audio of the above City Council Members Jim Perry, Mike Soubirous and Andy Melendrez mocking local taxpaying resident Kevin Dawson:

Councilman Mike Soubirous stated ‘I hope he doesn’t yell.   While Councilman Jim Perry interjects…”Should we yell at him for 3 minutes?”  Soubirous then states, “Why are talking to loud,” laughter then continues.  Councilman Jim Perry mocks Dawson by repeating the following he said in Council..”I don’t know how many times I’ve told you,” then goes on to state, “I’m angry!”  According to Dawson, Councilman Andy Melendrez simply thought the whole thing was just funny.

If you know Dawson as I do, you know he is an absolute person of integrity.  But what are we seeing here folks, politics in action?  Is this what we are seeing on a bigger level in Washington D.C.?  Yes I unfortunately think so, but to be fair, we know these antics happen behind the scenes all the time, the only difference, there was a hot mike.

This mocking is not only disturbing to me, but sets a dangerous precedence in reference to our City Council government and behavior.  We have been called wing nuts, nay sayer’s, crazy etc. by Council which leads to the question “Do these public servants think they are better than us?”  We are left with illusion that as taxpaying residents, can we believe that are representatives are actually being fair and ethical when it comes to the concerns of their constituents?   We are encouraged by them to take part in local city government.  We are encouraged by them to express are opinions in public at City Council.  But our constituents are telling TMC that we are left on ‘deaf ears,’ when it comes to our concerns.  The Downtown Library comes to mind.  When the public hears the display by our representatives as in this audio…. We have to ask the question, “Do they really believe what they say?”  Or is this simple display of innocent school boy behavior?

Their is a quotation by which I believe and cite often that is attributed to BENJAMIN FRANKLIN—at the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, when queried as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation—in the notes of Dr. James McHenry, one of Maryland’s delegates to the Convention.

The quotation is as follows:  “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?”  Dr. James McHenry states, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

In other words, it is our responsibility of all American Citizens that if we intend to keep our Republic, that we take part in it.  But if the reality appears to be as such a display of behavior, what is the next step?  The bottom line of what Dawson told me was that he believed, “If more of the public knew and understood, there would be more people down there yelling at them.”

When government begins to work for their side of government, as oppose to commitment to the people, that is the end of government as we know it.  This is what we are seeing in local swamps and especially the swamp we call Washington D.C.
