Looks like the North Coast’s number one gossipmongering crybaby got caught trying to pass off another crock of crap on the unsuspecting. That of course does not include the cadre of Tuluwa apologist crybabies and their standard fare nonsense.
The Mad River Union is reporting that the California Coastal Commission is forcing the County to adhere to the process and obey the law to the letter. What a bummer for the County, who apparently went behind the public’s back in a probable Brown Act violation and secretly sent in an application to install a 90 foot railcar style bridge. A bridge that would have allowed easy vehicle access to Clam beach.
Well the Coastal Commission said sorry Rex, Ryan, Virginia and Estelle you actually have to complete Environmental studies before we can consider your request. We all know what those environmental studies would show! So it looks like they are going to avoid that embarrassment and just say they can afford to do them. Boo hoo!
So rest easy snowy plovers and regular beach goers you’re safe for now thanks to the California Coastal Commission
I expect Tuluwa’s verbose enforcer Mola to come out with a couple of thousand words to put poor Clueless in his place for daring to question the veracity of this blog and the people that support it.
When it comes to “adhere to the process and obey the law to the letter” these two-faced hypocrites are the last ones to be spouting off their self-righteous ridicule. It is impossible for any of them to be “embarrassed.” That requires a modicum of self-respect and they don’t have any.
This is a timely issue that all Eurekans and residents of Humboldt County need to address. It’s interesting that the people at this blog were able to see this problem in this community and write about it, but cannot see just how big a pile of shit they stepped in themselves. They can condemn the Eureka Police Department, the Chief of Police and the City Council for gross “crimes against humanity,” BUT what they cannot see is what they ARE themselves – that, in their own way, they do and commit the same kinds of crimes. They need a Review Board to check and censure their own “criminal” conduct.
Sadly, their hypocrisy totally negates any credibility they might have. If you want proof of this observation just follow the comments.
Until people can learn to take responsibility for their own lives and what they do, Review Boards are nothing more than an empty panacea. If you want accountability, then you first must learn to actually STOP at all stop signs. Problem is, I don’t expect anyone over at that blog to understand that…
Another police tool.
Last week it was license plate scanner – a necessary police tool to track and document who you are, where you live, work, shop and play. Today it’s “Irrigation crackdown” in the Times-Standard. Another necessary police tool in the form of the law AB 2284 by Assemblyman Wesley Chesbro, D-Arcata on the governor’s desk for signing. Chesbro says, according to Megan Hansen, “this legislation gives law enforcement new tools to protect public resource lands and private industrial timberland from harmful environmental practices. He defines the “practices” as “drug operations.” The “tool,” he says is, law enforcement (peace officers = Megan Hansen) would have to power to stop and question people transporting visible irrigation supplies through unpaved or gravel roads.
“Transporting visible irrigation supplies” sounds innocuous enough, doesn’t it? Would that be “supplies” on a big truck or in the back of pickup? What’s next fertilizers, building materials? Maybe it’s permanent security check points at county lines or better yet one between Eureka and Fortuna, at Bridgeville, Garberville, Trinidad – you name it.
It’s always the same thing with Knee-Jerkers. There’s always some overriding need to supplant, ignore or parse long established law.
The legal right to self defense, the right to defend with lethal force whenever an individual is threatened, or their family, or their country, that is granted to all American citizens has been nearly eviscerated in the American populace’s’ psyche. To try to counter that decadence 36 states enacted various forms of a “Stand Your Ground Law.” Such laws and the individual’s legal right to carry weapons for self-defense, the ability to “stand your ground, threatens the already weak and effeminate, delegitimized police and their masters, the ruling oligarchy represented by their various employers. That conflict was graphically illustrated in the fatal shooting of Kenneth Chamberlain, Sr., a 68-year-old African-American Marine veteran in White Plains, New York. Another situation just like the Fortuna police shooting of Jacob Newmaker. Both killings were racially motivated; one “black trash” and the other, “white trash.”

If you don’t think something like this “home invasion” by the police couldn’t happen in Eureka, you’d better think again. Our homes are the one place, even the latest Supreme Court has ruled, that we not only should “feel” safe, but be safe and secure. This fixation on protecting police health and safety at all costs including the general public jeopardizes everyone. It was reported in the March 25, 2012, Times-Standard: Shots fired near G and 11th streets in Eureka – Notice this excerpt: ”By that time, the police were there and had set up a perimeter,” he said. “There were three officers with assault rifles checking out the church, and so I cleared out of there.” Are we to believe that the use of “assault rifles” in a residential neighborhood does NOT threaten everyone within range. Is the civilian population in Eureka reduced to being collateral damage now? I always understood the reason the police were issued handguns and shot guns was to PROTECT the general population from the penetrating power of a high-powered “assault rifle.
Here are a couple of links to local blog Humboldt Herald about this issue, one in particular on how the local county Board of Supervisors worked with both the Eureka Police Department’s acting Chief of Police and the Humboldt county Sheriff to collaborate on a quick-fix law to deal with Occupy demonstrators. The comments show the local thinking. Russia? Latin American Banana Republic and Pooping on Liberty.
Human Nature in (Humboldt County, CA) Evansville
Sounds like Humboldt County more than anything. If it isn’t the rank corruption, it’s the doomsayers stopping safety, jobs, business, and investment. You have to look no further than the proposed Caltrans minimal project to widen Highway 101 at Richardson Grove to the latest lawsuit where “Humboldt County” (our Illustrious Supervisors) are forcing the Forster-Gill company to resort to legal action because the “county” refuses to act in a legal manner. Not to leave the City of Eureka out of the mix, include the latest City Council firing of Police Chief Garr Nielsen.
That’s the link that goes to Ernie Branscomb’s blog post titled: “Vent your Spleen” – This post is a classic example of what Ryan McMaken writes about in his article: “Lessons From the Casey Anthony Trial.” – Here’s the opening paragraph:
Perhaps not since the feds hanged Mary Surratt for Abe Lincoln’s assassination have so many been so happy at the thought of seeing a woman lynched. To the outrage of bloodthirsty, bleary-eyed couch potatoes from sea to shining sea, Casey Anthony was found not guilty of the murder of her daughter.
Now compare this to what Branscomb says:
What got me started on all of this, is that I got to thinking about Casey Anthony. She has absolutely no principles whatsoever. While she was in jail awaiting trial it came out that she had used a friends credit card and ran up a bunch of bills on it that she had no way of paying. She stole her friend’s checks and used them to buy beer and clothes. She pleads guilty to 13 felony fraud, bad check, and credit card theft counts. On top of being a thief and a fraud, she is a liar and a slut. Only a fool would think that she doesn’t have at least a small idea of what happened to her daughter.
Followed by this:
**** Sadly, there are men out there that would like to take advantage of her drop dead gorgeous body. Maybe she could become a prostitute, it wouldn’t be much of a life style change for her, she apparently would go to bed with any man that was “Hot”. I guess the true test is what would the average man think of her?
This is probably the most disgusting display of effeminate, gossip-mongering and character assassination I’ve read in a local blog for some time. What makes it REALLY sewer-scum caliber is that these people (see comments) are some of the first people to preach law and order the old-fashioned way. We sure know what kind of law and order that is. But, then…
I’ll let Mr McMaken speak for me, he continues:
The case itself is far less interesting than the reaction to it. In spite of all the drama that the despicable “news” media attempted to inject into it, the actual trial was humdrum. In typical fashion, the prosecution built its case on mostly circumstantial evidence and on character assassination. The jury concluded that the prosecution had not proven guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. A not-guilty verdict was returned. Case closed.
This is exactly how the legal system is supposed to work. People are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, and guilt must be established beyond a reasonable doubt. We’re not supposed to convict people of capital crimes because we find them distasteful or annoying.
None of that matters to the great American lynch mob, which, not even being present at the trial, finds itself so magnificently insightful and so morally pure, that its shrill cries for justice echo with unparalleled histrionic fervor down the virtual halls of Facebook and Twitter. [Emphasis added]
I could continue, but after reading Branscomb’s so-called venting, I felt like I needed to take a bath. I guess what really gets to me is the unabashed, in-your-face corruption and hypocrisy. Unprincipled, morally and ethically depraved versus sanctimonious, self-righteous, elitism. Because it goes to the very heart of, “preach rule of and law, but enforce rule of men” here’s a small example. He says, “’Karma’ which I absolutely don’t believe in, because I can’t hit it with a hammer, so it doesn’t work for me.” Then proceeds with all the authority and self-righteousness God gave a goose to tell everyone all about “Karma.” Perhaps Branscomb should have taken to heart the words of someone considered an authority on Karma: “Stop judging that you may not be judged; for with what judgment you are judging, you will be judged; and with the measure that you are measuring out, they will measure out to you.”
The standard exemplified here that sets the norm is also defined in this quote – a fitting conclusion:
“We are an attention-deficit nation, and we have dumbed ourselves down so much that people don’t understand the simplest of things.”
