When it comes to school bond measures of late, we know one thing: the bait & switch fad is in!  They tell the community one thing in order to get the measure passed, using half-truths, lies of omission, emotional arguments. astro-turfing, etc…typical conman stuff.  Then later you’ll find they have diverted those monies for other pet projects or expenses.  They’ll even offer phony oversight in the form of a Citizens’ Oversight Committee, and then stack it with their usually conflicted, kool-aid drinking buddies from the community – maybe even send their own lawyers to sway the proceedings in case there’s a couple troublemakers looking out for the taxpayers.

BUT FIRST: THE INFAMOUS CITY OF RIVERSIDE’S OWN SELF-APPOINTED CITIZEN AUDITOR, VIVIAN MORENO, AND HER TAKE ON THE NEW EDUCATIONAL MEASURES THAT FAILED ON MARCH 3RD, 2020, AND THE ARROGANCE OF THOSE BOLD ENOUGH TO MISAPPROPRIATE AND STEAL TAXPAYER MONEY.  UPDATE: 03.11.2020: Vivian Moreno right again!  Days after this posting, colleges go on-line, according to the Press Enterprise.  Is there really a need to expand expensive college campuses?  School and College as we know it, is it over?  If this is the new normal, what are these public servant elites going to do without the taxpayer gravy train?  Maybe, find a real job?

Let’s take a look at the one of the main players behind RCCD’s Measure A: the Chancellor of RCCD (Riverside Community College District- Norco, Moreno Valley, Riverside campuses).  According to Riverside Superior Court records filed February 18, 2020, Chancellor Wolde-Ab Isaac, PhD  is being accused by Plaintiff, Terri Hampton, Vice Chancellor of Human Resources & Employee Relations, of using taxpayer money to have RCC (Riverside Community College) facilities staff perform work at his personal residence.  Ms. Hampton also accuses Mr. Isaac of promoting employees to higher-level positions without following the legitimate process.  Hmmm….. what does that mean?  We know how that worked for Assistant City Manager Belinda Graham at the City of Riverside and soooo many others: they screwed more than the taxpayers if you know what I mean.  Former Presidential contender Kamala Harris also comes to mind.  Remember how she moved on up, with the help and affair of former San Francisco Mayor and Speaker of the California State Assembly, the incomparable Willie Brown.

In addition, Plaintiff Terri Hampton “observed a differential treatment by the Chancellor between male and female employees that have disagreements with him.  For example, the Chancellor consistently offers ‘golden parachutes‘ for male employees that the District has ’cause to terminate.'”  If that is true, Isaac is utilizing tax payer monies inappropriately.

The suit states that when the Chancellor communicates a work need at his home, RCC Facilities contacts a vendor and sends the vendor to his home.  The vendor then faxes the bill to the Vice President of Administration, who then gives the invoice to the Chancellor for payment.  Vice President of Administration, Raymond “Chip” West stated he has the invoices faxed directly to him (West) because he did not want there to be an electronic trail via e-mail.

The Chancellor obviously likes his job, responding sometimes to Hampton, “I am the Chancellor and you will do what I say.”  And then adding, “You will do what I say, or you will find yourself looking for a job.” The Chancellor sound like a great boss to work for….if you like dictators…but more on that later.

We at TMC probably could’ve gone the whole rest of our lives without mentioning Dr. Isaac, but he got on our radar by running around the Inland Empire telling the community why Measure A was needed to the tune of $715 Million for the Riverside Community College District.  If these allegations turn out to be true, we think we can make a pretty good case as to why these kinds of shenanigans cause the community to feel ripped off when it comes down to how educational tax monies are spent.  You would think that good ol Ab-Wolde is perhpas not getting paid enough?  However, that’s not what we see according to Transparent California.  He has plenty of money to fix his house.  His paycheck from the taxpayers is almost $400,000 per year, so why does he feel its the taxpayers responsibility to pay for his alleged home repairs?

The following video gives you a whiff of who Isaac really is as he defends the need for the Educational Bond Measure A.  The Chancellor of RCCD (Riverside Community College District- Norco, Moreno Valley, Riverside) Wolde-Ab Isaac, Ph.D., debates community and taxpayer advocate Jason Hunter on College Facility Bond, Measure A.  Isaac insisted there was a master plan – a specific project list – that the taxpayer loot would be spent on.  Problem is Dr. Isaac, it wasn’t on the ballot proposition.  You wanted a blank check.  With Measure A’s inglorious defeat, we recommend that next time you need to let the taxpayers know what they are actually paying for!

But looking into Isaac’s past, he has quite a record as an authoritarian.  Makes you wonder if RCCD could have had a better vetting process.  According to the Harnnet, the Official Eritrean Peoples Democratic Party’s Web Site, Isaac’s past is…interesting.

Students who came back from the war front lines found out that their government, the PFDJ, did not trust them despite the determination they showed in protecting the country with their lives. The memory of colleagues including fresh graduates, who died in the war, was very vivid at the time. But PFDJ officials and the likes, including Dr Wolde-ab Issak, did not bother about the effect of their policies on student moral and nationalism.” “While at the University of Asmara, Dr Wolde-ab did not care about academic issues.”

According to the World Socialist Web Site, Eritrea, Two Students Die In Government Clampdown!  Two students have died and up to 2,000 others are being detained in a detention camp following protests against the government.  Yirga Yosef and Yemane Tekee, who both died of heat stroke, were students at Asmara University in the country’s capital. 

After the mass arrests, police broke up a meeting outside Asmara University of anxious parents who had gathered to demand the release of their children. One woman whose son and daughter are being detained desperately pleaded, “They have taken them to a very hot place, with no food, no water. It is 49 degrees there. More will die. They must take them out of that place—that’s what we’re begging”.  Another mother said, “My son is there. I have nephews and nieces there. They are being punished just because they asked for their rights. The government just wants to show its strength.”

The president of Asmara University, Wolde-Ab Isaak, condemned the action taken by the students and called it “illegal.”  Wow, sounds like a nice guy, good job RCCD.

According to another article in the Harnnet, The Official Eritrean Peoples Democratic Party Web Site, we see the following article: The Sarcasm, Denial and Lies of the Eritrean Authorities: A Personal Account On The National Service, The Closure Of The University of Asmara and the Scholarship Program In South Africa.

As stated by writer Zekarias Ginbot, “I did not know where Dr. Wolde-Ab Isaac has been since he left the University of Asmara. But last year, I found out that he was working for a certain US college in California, and as I expected, as an acting president. This power hungry person always goes for administrative posts despite his qualification in science. I do not mean this is a taboo but from my experience, Dr Wolde-ab does not have administrative qualities. He would be better suited for a military general than an academician or administrator. He was an arrogant person who did not have any relationship with his staff or the students and was better known for intimidation of staff at the University and demobilization of government employees without compensation in other government institutions.

While at the University of Asmara, Dr Wolde-ab did not care about academic issues. I don’t remember him chairing a discussion on academic issues during the time I worked as a lecturer but only PFDJ sponsored functions. Every time someone approaches him with a question, he does his best in belittling the individual by going into side issue instead of addressing the concerns raised. No one denies that he is an excellent orator but he uses his talent only to intimidate others. When I spoke about him to people who knew him while he was at the Uppsala University in Sweden, their response was, “…well, what do you expect from Wolde-ab”, no surprise at all.

According to the BBC NEWS REPORT: Eritrean Student Leaders Released, By Alex Last in Asmara.  A total of 2,700 (students) were returned to Asmara in September, except the members of the student union executive, who were detained.  It had been reported that the student leaders were questioned about links with the group of leading dissidents, who have been detained without charge since September.  There has been no official confirmation of the reports.  The President of the University, Dr. Wolde-Ab Isaac, has not been available for comment.  The University has remained quiet and there has not been further protest since the students returned from the desert.  Hmmm…. It appears that Isaac is some how working in conjunction with his Eritrean Government cronies and working against a contained people who appear to be freedom fighters as a oppose to being Socialist.  So why is Wolde-Ab Isaac in America?  That is my question.

This is a question TMC is being asked, because many in our community feel they will be retaliated against for asking this simple question. We are asking Riverside Community College District for a response on this issue?  Again, I simply don’t get it, but if you know anything out there, please correct us, or add to the debate,  otherwise that’s what people are telling us.

The PFDJ, known as the Peoples Front For Democracy and Justice, is the founding and ruling political party of the State of Eritrea.  The successor to the formerly left-wing nationalist and Marxist–Leninist Eritrean People’s Liberation Front (EPLF), the PFDJ holds itself open to nationalists of any political affiliation.  The leader of the PFDJ party and current President of Eritrea is Isaias Afewerki.  The country has been widely accused of totalitarianism.

“Under the current regime, where Eritrea is being ruled without any constitution, the PFDJ Party dominates all cultural and academic activities. Moreover, in Eritrea’s political system, academic activities are monitored regularly not only by PFDJ’s propaganda departments, but also by Dr Woldeab Isaac, the President of the University, who works very closely with government officials.”

The PFDJ government’s brutal action against the students is part of a national clampdown that has also led to the arrest of journalists and oppositionists.

“… Dr Wolde-Ab does not have administrative qualities. He would be better suited for a military general than an academician or administrator.” He was an arrogant person who did not have any relationship with his staff or the students and was better known for intimidation of staff at the University and demobilization of government employees without compensation in other government institutions.

Does this fit of the RCCD culture?  Further, is this the eventual indoctrination agenda for the educational system within the State of California?  More in Part II coming up soon, here is Part II:

When those who are entrusted to promote academic freedom are the same ones who are restricting it, as is the case with Dr Wolde-Ab Isaac, then the university is not a place of learning and does not possess transcendent value anymore.  The tragedy is that those very people who benefited from such institutions of higher education are now aiding those who are abating such fundamental freedoms.

Again, what is RCCD promoting?  Is it totalitarianism?  Is RCCD attempting to control the speech and thought process of their students through Isaac’s experience for a current contemporary political agenda?  Thank God we live in America, if Isaac had his way here, he would send TMC out to the desert.  The question is, “Does RCCD condone this behavior and politics?”  A politics of control, totalitarianism and socialism?  Evidently so, through their policies and employees hired to run our public educational college and school systems.

Why did Isaac allegedly do this?  Maybe because it was easy enough that he could?  Where’s the supposed oversight?

 

Next in line,  William Clarence Newberry, who was charged with two counts of grand theft and one count each of embezzlement of public funds and misappropriation of public funds.

Currently, according to the Press Enterprise, William Clarence Newberry, the former president of the Riverside County School Boards Association and former Corona-Norco Unified School District Board Member was charged with embezzlement to the tune of $40,000 June 19, 2019.   Two counts of grand theft and one count each of embezzlement of public funds and misappropriation of public funds, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office said.

DA’s investigators found that between December 2013 and February 2017, Newberry used an association debit card without authorization to make personal purchases and pay medical bills totaling $17,000, the release said. Also, Newberry dipped into a checking account belonging to the Climate Booster Club at Eleanor Roosevelt High in Eastvale and stole $23,000 to pay his bills and make purchases for himself, the release said.

Why did Newberry allegedly do this?  Maybe because it was easy enough that he could? Where’s the supposed oversight?

 

Or what about Ted Eugene Rozzi the assistant superintendent of facilities at the Corona-Norco Unified School District?  Rozzi was charged with 30 felonies related to his work as the assistant superintendent of facilities at the Corona-Norco Unified School District, allegedly laundering approximately $1.17 million by depositing checks written by an Ontario contractor into his credit card accounts.

Ted Eugene Rozzi, 60, of Redlands, is accused of embezzling and laundering approximately $1.7 million by depositing checks written by an Ontario contractor into his credit card accounts.

Edward Curtis Mierau, 65, of Ladera Ranch, the head of school builder Neff Construction, is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 3 on charges that include money laundering and helping a public official financially benefit from a contract. Both men were charged Nov. 5.

Rozzi is accused of diverting such checks that should have gone to the district to his credit card accounts instead.  From 1992 to 2017, Rozzi supervised construction for the district. Cash-strapped districts will sometimes ask contractors to front the money to pay vendors before being reimbursed.


During the investigation, which began in May 2017, search warrants were served and it was determined there were emails between Rozzi and Mierau in which Rozzi asked for checks to be written from Neff to various financial institutions and not the school district, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office said. Investigators said they determined that more than $1.1 million was stolen between December 2011 and May 2017.  That amount could by higher, possibly to the tune of of $2 Million according to a 62-page report by the Fiscal Crisis & Management Assistance Team.  This agency, created by state law, assists California schools with business operations and fiscal practices, and is headed by old RUSD friend, the curmudgeonly (a quality we kinda like in accountant-types) Mike Fine.

Again, why did Rozzi allegedly do this?  Maybe because it was easy enough that he could? Where’s the supposed oversight?

 

Voters approved Measure C in March 2004 to finance much-needed projects to accommodate the growing number of students in the RCCD (Riverside Community College District).  Proceeds from the bond were designated to help pay for the acquisition, construction, improvement, and renovation of various college facilities as outlined in the ballot measure.  A Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) keeps the public informed about how Measure C proceeds are used through annual reports to the Riverside Community College District Board of Trustees and the public.​​

But according to the “Vote No On Measure A” site,  $3.5 Million of Measure C/ Proposition 39 monies was directed toward salaries and benefits over a period of time according to these records.

Report on Measure C/ Propostion 39 Funding Financial & Performance Audit 2015_2016

Were Measure C monies diverted to salaries and benefits?  That is the question, and we are still trying to bring forward the answer to the taxpayer…but we suspect we already know the answer…

What have government educational systems become?  Are they a gravy train for the those who know the system?  Are they an indoctrination mill of lower learning and one side partisan leaning?  We find that when it comes to the Riverside education system, it is usually a question of, “Dumb and Dumber?”.  TMC advocates for school choice: since when is competition such a bad thing?  The best person to make the decision for educating their child is you the parent, not the government or some union.

The moral of the story of March 3, 2020, is that the government stooges and their toadies better start taking care of the taxpayer, because the taxpayer is no longer going to take care of you.  The government belongs to John Q. Public: we certainly pay for it, so it needs to work for us.

ANOTHER NO ON MEASURE-Z VOTER? TAKE THAT TAXPAYER!

Hoses, Tasers and Over Time! Yes, Police and Fire have a thing about Over Time.  Overtime in the Private Sector, is unseen in any capacity, it is a reflection of incompetence within an organization (such as the City) and their inefficiency to produce an actual savings to the taxpayer, thus they continue the behavior of doing nothing about it.  City of Riverside leaders have continued to make bad contract deals regarding our Fire and Police; and further, continue their practice of handing taxpayer monies to Non-Profits such as the Riverside Chamber of Commerce and The Rain Cross Group.  Which if not for our taxpayer monies could not make it on their own in the market place.  Transparent California shows how “high on the hog” Public Safety and Non-Public Safety Employees feed on the taxpayer trough!

This informational Pamphlet on Measure-Z is simply just a subterfuge perpetrated to hide the financial mess the city is in, and the bad pension deals they negotiated.  They will not cut anything, such as raises, over time and pensions, but they will make the taxpayer go without the basics, such as tree cutting.  One item on both pamphlets that you should notice, because the City will lie,  is that it claims Measure-Z with “Provide Anti-Drug and Gang Programs.”  NOT TRUE!  Anti-Drug and Gang Programs are Federally funded through Police Asset Forfeiture funds.  Police have been abusing that as well, such as using these restricted funds to buy running equipment, such as shoes, for the Baker to Vegas run.

This week alone two flyers went out by the Yes on Measure-Z group, sent in hopes to capture your hearts, as opposed to your mind.  One on Fire, then the second on Police.

Remember fellow taxpayers, huge money is behind the Yes on Measure-Z campaign.  Tim Strack, President of the Riverside Fire Union has placed close to $100,000.00 against you.  Sgt. Brian Smith, Riverside Police Union, is doubling down on, though he lost $350,000.00 of his member dues, through an embezzlement scheme.  How can Sgt. Smith be trusted? He colluded and conspired with the Chief of Police, Sergio Diaz to remove two Councilmen who didn’t agree with them.  President Sgt. Brian Smith of RPOA, was Vice President, when Chris Lanzillo was President.  Remember the “Cop Play Book?”  Well his mentor, Chris Lanzillo, former Riverside Police Detective is now seeing jail time according to the Press Enterprise.

More to come on Chris Lanzillo and Brian Smith, you can count on this!  These guys are not what they appear to be, their crooks!   Even Las Vegas Developer Terry Manley, remember La Sierra Hills, is in on our local politics.  Is he hoping someone at City Hall will remember him being a loyal soldier? Yes it all stinks to high heaven folks, especially to be betrayed by your City Leadership and those who took an oath to protect the Public First, Fire and Police.

Some state that Police and Fire make less than Teachers, I personally find that an insult to Teachers, but Transparent California tells a different picture on Fire and Police.  It seems that they are making more than Corporate Execs and Doctors!  The Riverside Police Department have incredible amounts of OT (Remember that’s how they pad their pensions), Other Pay and Benefits before finally tallying up the final total.  If you come from the Corporate Private Sector as I do, OT as this is never seen.  Overtime as this would lead a corporation to Bankruptcy, and that may be where the City is going.  It won’t, rather cut spending, we’ll just tax the residents.  Private sector in the same situation, just can’t grab money from the air as the Public Sector, they have to make cuts and increase production, otherwise, bankruptcy.

Well how about Fire, it appears they Need more Money also, check the incredible amounts of OT, Other Pay and Benefits before the final tally is totaled.  What this tells me is that Union Contract Negotiations must be Public.  We have the right to know and be engage, after all the taxpayer is the Employer.  What we see here is that City Leadership has not been looking out for the best interest of the taxpayer, but for other interest.

Currently, as stated in an August 8, 2016 Press Enterprise article, City Worker Pensions now average $71,811.00!  Police and Fire average $108,173.00!

Back in 2013, the City sent out at taxpayers expense, and informational flyer, known as the Water Measure, or Measure-A.  The items claimed Measure A was needed for, are the same items Measure Z is needed for!  Who’s telling the truth?  Certainly not the City, Police and Fire.

In this taxpayer paid pamphlet, the City of Riverside threatened the taxpayer, that if this Measure-A didn’t pass the following would occur:  The City would be forced to cut $6.7 million in local services, there may actually as residents faced with more gangs, graffiti and rundown streets.  They actually stated that 79 City positions would be eliminated which included Police Officers, Firefighters, School Crossing Guards (we know what happened there), youth recreation programs (we know what happened there), senior services.  (they actually threatened the Goeske Center Seniors, that if the measure didn’t pass funding would be cut to the Goeske Center).  What do I think?  Talk about below the belt, City of Riverside lied and threatened the Goeske Center.

REMEMBER FOLKS DON’T BELIEVE FOR A MINUTE THAT THESE PARASITES ARE ON THE SIDE OF THE TAXPAYER!   THE MONIES ALLOCATED TO PASS MEASURE-Z ARE HUGE!  IN AN PRESS ENTERPRISE ARTICLE, SEPTEMBER 9, 2016, PRESIDENT TIM STRACK OF THE RIVERSIDE FIREFIGHTERS UNION STATED THAT HE HAS COMMITMENTS FOR NEARLY  $100,000.00!  THESE PEOPLE ARE IN IT FOR PERSONAL GAIN, OUR LEADERSHIP HAS BEEN BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY SPECIAL INTEREST, WHICH INCLUDES THE NON-PROFITS.   VOTE NO ON MEASURE Z

7161420_orig

If the City can’t take control of OT (Over Time- just look at it on Transparent California) and Other Pay and deal with Fire Unions to lower our debt which equals taxes, there are alternatives.  In Texas, the Volunteer Fire Department in not only revered but respected, because they are literally part of the community.  Let’s do it Riverside, but the leadership doesn’t have the guts as these guys do.  Are we willing to be as Tough as Texas and Vote No on Measure-Z?

REMEMBER MY FELLOW TAXPAYERS DON’T BURDENED YOUR BACK BY HIGHER SALES TAXES!

COMMENTS: WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

Again what we have in the City of Riverside is “not a revenue problem” but a “spending problem.” We’ve been writing about this since 2011, and predicted the City of Riverside would be running out of money in 2016; that happened.  But the City continues to spend our money on overpriced consultants and an overpriced city manager to tell them the truth.  If they listen to the wingnuts, as they call us, we did it for free.  Remember the Water Measure, Measure A;  then they states we were going to lose fire, police, services etc. if it didn’t pass.  It passed and we lost services anyway. The council, staff, fire unions, our rpd police unions lied about it.  That’s a fact!  To put bluntly, Measure-Z is all about sustaining the unsustainable fire and police pensions.  Even if Measure-Z passed, the taxpayer would be screwed again, we still won’t get our trees cut, but we get a bike lane on Brockton no one uses.  While the private sector is receiving 0.5% to 2% increases in pay, public sector is receiving 6% to 15%.  All union negotiations should not be behind closed doors, but behind the watchful eye of the public.

New story breaking in the Press Enterprise, here we go again, now the City wants to build a new 5,000 seat stadium next to the Convention Center at a cost of $87 million.  Who’s going to pay for it, guess who? Right again through issuing a bond and increase sales taxes.

UPDATE: LOOKING BACK AT A TMC POSTING ON DECEMBER 28, 2013, HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF, SCORES OF RETIRED, AND EX-FIREFIGHTERS AND EX-POLICE OFFICERS INVOLVED IN DISABILITY SCAM.  According to the L.A. Times many of them were coached before going to physician’s to be evaluated by their attorneys and supported by their unions.  This is the kind of behavior that concerns people in Riverside.  Many of them were found going fishing, riding motorcycles, running, going on cruise and working other jobs.  The let down was the taxpayer, who placed these individuals on a heroes pedestal.  These individuals didn’t care, only for their own self interest at the expense of the hardworking taxpayer.  More arrest eminent, the fraud has been predicted to extend beyond $400 million.

Boys just want to have fun, even on a disability retirement..

In Riverside we had the case of retired and ex RPD officer Chris Lanzillo, who was given a medical retirement/pension and went on to start his own investigation firm in Orange County.  Another medical/disability retirement fraud case?  Lanzillo was a former Union President for RPD and somehow connected to doing work for the law firm of  Lackie, Dammeier & McGill, which their offices were raided by order of the Orange County D.A. office.  Since then two Costa Mesa Councilman sue the law firm and it eventually closed.

chrislanzillo

Let me see if I’ve got this straight…A Riverside detective named Chris Lanzillo gets fired…then is called back so that he can be retired early on a medical disability…which qualifies him to recieve his pay in large part tax free for the rest of his life.  BUT…he’s not so disabled that he can’t work as a private investigator for a law firm that represents cops and cop unions…and shall we say…suuplement his retirement pay……Is that absurd or what!  He’s a bad cop who’s now a crook…and we got to pay his freight for the rest of his life!  – John Bosch, Commenter on the Orange County Register

UPDATE: DWP UNION CHIEF, BRIAN D’ARCY, OF THE INTERNATIONAL BROTHERHOOD OF ELECTRICAL WORKERS REFUSES TO TURN OVER FINANCIAL RECORDS OF HOW PUBLIC MONIES HAVE BEEN SPENT TO AUDITORS. 

1438760_op_morrison_darcy_JLC

Brian D’Arcy, Union Chief IBEW

Ron Nichols confided at a  private meeting with the DWP Board of Commissioners that IBEW Union Boss Brian D’Arcy had made the threat, and Nichols said he was worried the City of L.A.  would not defend him in a lawsuit, according to two officials who attended the  meeting.  Is this another example of how the Goodfellas continue to infiltrate public sector monies by strong arming and threatening public officials for their own self greedy gratifications?  It is apparently appearing to be so.  Alleged corruption of this magnitude should not be tolerated by the public at large.

Ron Nichols, former DWP General Manager

“D’Arcy told him that if he were  to ever share any information, D’Arcy would sue him personally as a breach of  fiduciary duty,” DWP Commission president Mel Levine told KFI NEWS  Friday.  What also appears eminent, besides unions being in control of many public service aspects, many of them have infiltrated are political system with façade of representing the taxpayer.  Remember folks, we are dealing with rate payers money.  Money which is in the realm of Public Utilities, owned by the taxpayer.  Some commenters were stating that that the unions were no better that the mob.  I do believe that not only the taxpayer are hurt by union action and behavior, but the union workers, which the union’s use for their benefit.   Read more: http://www.kfiam640.com/articles/local-news-465708/outgoing-dwp-boss-threatened-over-secret-11964091/#ixzz2qAgvmZrm

Guess who is now Los Angeles’s DWP General Manager?  Former Riverside Public Utilities Crook, Dave Wright… The Trash Recycles in many ways!  As all these public servants do, including Fire and Police, as in the Lanzillo case, they retire early, and double dip into a second pension.  Its crooked and its fraud, TMC is simply exposing the truth.
