    A little extra background. For whatever it’s worth. A whole lot of conflict between Trump words and actions.

    Trump’s Advisors:

    Steven Mnuchin, Finance Chair: Banker and CEO of hedge fund Dune Capital. Used IndyMac Bank to foreclose on homeowners and while relying upon taxpayers to carry the risk.

    Paul Manafort, Campaign Chair: Top tier Washington lobbyist. Specializes in being paid to get candidates elected, and also getting paid to then have those candidates do the bidding of high paying special interests. Lobbied for a HUD grant to rehabilitate Upper Deerfield, NJ while making absolutely no improvements but doubling rents. He’s worked for a Lebanese arms dealer, Zaire’s dictator, and an Angolan guerilla leader who engaged in bodily mutilations, sexual slavery, and child kidnapping.

    Laurance Gay: Worked with Manafort on the Upper Deerfield scam.

    Where were the Riot Police when the neighbors of that former O C Chief Probation Officer use to call them about all the Marijuana fumes floating over to their house’s from the Chief Probation Officer’s house. Her neighbors use to call our Probation Records Unit complaining about all the Marijuana fumes (I handled one of those calls), I also called my Office Manager because other Clerks were also getting calls. I remember actually calling the Chief Probation Officer, I spoke to that corrupt Asst. Chief Probation Officer who had her very own Gang of Drug Dealers that use to make Drug Deliveries right into her Office while on duty, she use to Smoke so much Marijuana while on duty that all 5 floors of the Probation Department were full of Marijuana fumes. At times the cafeteria was full of Law Enforcement Officers from various Cities and NO ONE SAID OR DID A THING ABOUT IT. I remember that Deputy Sheriff/Security Guard that use to say “Someone is Smoking Marijuana on the 5th floor (Admin Unit) and I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO. Apparently his boss didn’t know either.

    How could you call the Costa Mesa event an “unruly block party”? I have never been to a block party where the participants destroyed police cars and threw tantrums anything other than a violent riot.

    These violent protesters are terrorists. They are using physical force and intimidation to silence others. You are promoting this violence and terrorism with your kind words.

    Your bias is unrelenting.

    • Hi Teresa, while inserting photos into the post I inadvertently deleted a reference to the trashing of the police car in Costa Mesa. It’s back in now. My apologies.

    Your pro-illegal immigrant, anti-Trump bias comes through in every article you write. At least you mentioned the fact that the violent anti-Trump mob was waiving the Mexican flag. You missed the action where the mob was burning the American flag. Or did you? Some reporting of that fact wouldn’t exactly fit with your agenda though.
    You have been reporting on the Santa Ana City Council for years and have never attempted to explore or write about their obvious bias when it comes to non-Hispanic residents (code phrase “the usual suspects”) and employees.

      “Burning the American flag.” Pretty sure that never happened. I was there the whole time, and didn’t see that or hear of it. We anti-Trump people had plenty of American flags, and were waving them (and putting a Trump piñata on top of one.)

        It did, I think, in Albuquerque.

        • Vern Pat Nelson

          He was attempting to say “Don’t – STOP – protesting Trump.”

            They’re angry that Trump is going to enforce American law and secure our borders. Hmm…I wonder why?

          • BeeBee.BeeLeaves

            LOL. Me-thinks a Sharpie and cardboard would have been less painful. But that’s just me, older, cautious.

    Everyone has a voice that can and should be heard. But when you cause violent drama and throw rocks at horses and riders and follow the TV cameras to try to make it on air time, then I wanna know who is signing your paycheck for the day. If you got paid to play, your voice is dead silent. And you just helped your opposition. Silly clown guy, tricks are for kids.
