Snohomish County Prosecutors and attorneys tampering with FBI National Crime Information Center data

Soto        Ragonesi

 Ann Marie Soto                                          Shannon Ragonesi 

In November 2017, the City of Gold Bar’s attorneys Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi decided to have a meeting with a federal witness Brandia Tamuu.  Besides the obvious, tampering with a federal witness ( a felony in Washington), both entered into a bribery scheme to remove the witness’s criminal arrest warrant and criminal history from the National Crime Information Center’s (NCIC) criminal data base.

Public records from the City of Gold Bar, from November 21 to December 20, 2017, document that in November 2017, Shannon Ragonesi and Ann Marie Soto were contacted for a meeting by a convicted animal abuser. The woman was desperate for money, had in fact tried extort the Gold Bar Reporter for money/car, and had offered to meet up with Ragonesi and Soto at the Law Firm of Keating Bucklin McCormack Inc in downtown Seattle. Brandia Tammu needed money as she was being threatened with eviction from her home.  In exchange for meeting with Ragonesi and Soto, the woman would get money and her City of Everett arrest warrant and conviction for animal abuse would be cleared.  Tammu claimed to have dirt on the Gold Bar Reporter, but had nothing of value except speculation on why the Gold Bar Reporter moved West, and it was quite apparent from an insider at the law office that the woman is suffering from mental health issues.

According to the woman, Ragonesi and Soto agreed to clear her criminal arrest warrant and conviction from NCIC via ACCESS.

Ragonesi and Soto also told the woman that they could issue secret subpoenas for any document they so desired, and further offered to help the woman get a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter’s news reports.  One witness said that the woman recorded their meeting, but we have no knowledge of whether this is true or not.

The Washington State Patrol turned over the woman’s criminal history one week before and a week after the Ragonesi and Soto November  2017 bribery  meeting, and it is clear that just days after this meeting, the criminal conviction record and arrest warrant were wiped from NCIC via ACCESS.  The person who cleared the woman’s ACCESS records was Michael Meyers, King County police officer.

The City of Gold Bar, at the bequest of Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi, illegally claimed that the meeting records were exempt from public disclosure. Obviously, a lawsuit forcing disclosure is coming, and Ms. Soto and Ms. Ragonesi will be deposed.

In early 2018, Gold Bar’s new Mayor Bill Clem agreed to an interview with the Gold Bar Reporter and he said ” those people who are threatening you are now threatening me.”

 


NCIC was created to assist law enforcement track or apprehend persons that may be a danger to society or have outstanding criminal warrants. When a  police officer stops  a person driving or is a suspect,  s/he should know whether the person has a criminal history.  For this reason, ACCESS and NCIC are searched, hopefully alerting the officer a potential danger to them or outstanding court issues of the driver or suspect.  Self protection according to the US Supreme Court.

But here in Washington State, the FBI NCIC database via ACCESS is being tampered with as political favors, bribery schemes, and to enhance criminal sentencing if a defendant is convicted of crime.

Over the past year, we found case after case where mainly prosecutors inside King and Snohomish County government are illegally removing criminal history from the NCIC.

Here’s just three cases that illustrate quite nicely three Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe,  Wallace Langbehn III and Sean Reay’s criminal racketeering acts exposed in public NCIC records.

Sno County Prosecutor Sean Reay, removing criminal history records from NCIC as political favors


In 2009, the City of Gold Bar’s Mayor, Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) attempted to have the Gold Bar Reporter charged with a crime for exposing her crimes against the City of Gold Bar taxpayers ( theft in excess of $200,000.00). Ms. Hill Berg was sleeping with several married men inside Snohomish County government, including but not limited to Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon and Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington.

Ms Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) and John E Pennington were stealing from Snohomish County Emergency Management and the County’s Emergency Housing Funds.  Federal money distributed to the local government via a welfare block grant.

On July 5, 2008, Gold Bar’s water employee Karl Majerle was caught red handed stealing from the City of Gold Bar, and had in fact sabotaged the City’s Wells, # 3 and 4. Why, because Ms. Hill (Berg) was informed by Gold Bar council member Dorothy Croshaw that Majerle was stealing from the City.  After Karl Majerle was caught stealing, he was fired, which he recorded via audio means, and then out of anger, he left City Hall and poured gravel down Gold Bar’s City wells # 3 and 4.  Instead of reporting the federal crimes, as acts of domestic terrorism to Gold Bar’s water system, Ms. Hill (Berg) decided the best way to handle this was to ask Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay for a favor i.e. help quash criminal charges against Majerle.

And Sean Reay did  it.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay received the criminal referral from Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer Terry Handleman and Deputy Jeff Ross ( Brady Cops). Sean Reay received a phone call from Snohomish County Director John E Pennington and Executive Aaron Reardon asking for his help in quashing the criminal charges as “political courtesy.”  Sean Reay called then Sheriff and both made an agreement to not prosecute Karl Majerle for sabotaging the City of Gold Bar’s water system.

Sean Reay, in an effort to make it look good, sent the Karl Majerle’s criminal complaint to his wife, Laura Twindale. Ms. Twinsdale is in charge of Snohomish County District Court, Evergreen Division.

Sean Reay never referred the case to the federal government as all crimes against water systems must be referred to the DOJ and FBI for investigation and/or prosecution. But instead, Sean Reay sent the criminal complaint against Gold Bar’s water employee to his wife, Laura Twinsdale. Ms. Twinsdale is only in charge of misdemeanor offenses and has no authority  to issue felony charges nor prosecute federal crimes.

We later learned that Karl Majerle and Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) had entered into a bribery scheme. Why, because Karl Majerle knew what we didn’t know for five years until Snohomish County finally released a record it illegally withheld for almost 7 years now.

Simply put, Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is guilty of racketeering, quashing criminal charges as political favors.  Perhaps Mr. Reay thought he and Aaron Reardon were going to the Governor’s Manson.  So sad, but along came the Gold Bar Reporter, and Aaron Reardon was ousted for stealing public monies.

As a political favor, Sean Reay helped Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) remove her criminal conviction and arrest records from NCIC.

Not only did Prosecutor Sean Reay assist Ms. Hill ( nee Berg) remove her criminal history from NCIC, he also entered into a bribery scheme with Ms. Hill Pennington (nee Berg),  to quash criminal charges after she violently assaulted a six year old child.

 

Our readers, and those Ms Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) stole from ( City of Gold Bar taxpayers) should be happy to know that she is now frauding the federal taxpayers working as a contractor at FEMA in Emittsburg Maryland.   According to the Office of Inspector General, persons convicted of fraud are not eligible for federal employment or federal contracts of any nature.

FEMA’s Brock Long was made aware of Crystal Hill Pennington’s criminal history and has refused comment.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Wallace Langbehn III, putting false criminal history records inside NCIC.  Why?  To enhance criminal sentencing if the accused is found guilty. We also have ample evidence to also document that Wallace Langbehn also falsely placed criminal history inside NCIC to retaliate against persons who exposed Dawson Place as a fraudulent 501 (3) (C).

The Gold Bar Reporter was the first to expose Dawson Place as a fraudulent 501 (3) (c) with its sole purpose used by Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and Prosecutors Office for purposes of domestic spying and siphoning over $27 Million dollars of Washington State and federal taxpayer monies.

Dawson Place uses the law firm of Anderson Hunter to funnel millions of public money just as G. Geoffrey Gibbs did with attorney Lin O’Dell inside the Snohomish County Housing Authority scam known as Whispering Pines. The scam that involved Dean Bellamy, a man murdered by Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. Mr. Bellamy was threatening to expose many Judges and Commissioners involved in the guardian scam with attorneys Joseph Nappi Jr, Lin O’Dell and James Spargetis in Spokane.


Click below to how Dawson Place is nothing more than a shrill set up by Snohomish County Judges, Prosecutors and attorneys siphoning off million of public dollars.

For those of my readers who have been following the County’s malicious prosecution of Lori Shavlik, it’s  no  surprise that Dawson Place’s Prosecutor  Wallace Langbehn III was working inside Dawson Place when Snohomish County activist Lori Shavlik started piecing together the County Judges/Prosecutors/Attorneys sick little domestic spy ring also known now as Dawson Place.

Bigger question still remains unanswered: Where did the millions of public monies go?

 

In 2010, Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe and Adam Cornell knew Lori Shavlik was getting close to exposing Dawson Place as a shrill to funnel public monies and spy on citizens.  Mark Roe and Adam Cornell needed to shut Ms. Shavlik up as she was starting to unravel Dawson Place as a shadow agency owned and operated by Snohomish County government.

Mark Roe and Adam Cornell decided the best way to shut Ms. Shavlik up was to enlist the assistance of a known Brady Cop named David Fontenot. David Fontenot’s job was to find someone close to Ms. Shavlik to start a fire inside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon. Fontenot is as dirty as them, and had known all of the drug addicts, and one such drug addict Fontenot found worked inside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon. Rebecca Bradshaw was well know to David Fontenot, because Ms. Bradshaw was a drug informant on Snohomish County’s payroll.

While at the same time Rebecca Bradshaw is on Snohomish County’s payroll, Ms Bradshaw was working in and stealing from Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon in the City of Snohomish.   Brady Cop David Fontenot knew this, and enlisted Ms. Bradshaw assistance in starting a fire behind a dryer unitinside Ms. Shavlik’s tanning salon.

The false trumped up criminal charges Snohomish County set into action came only after Ms. Shavlik had exposed Dawson Place for fraud, and a government shrill to steal taxpayer monies without accountability.

In 2014,  Snohomish County Prosecutors Office, known racketeering member, Franchasca Yahyavi tried Ms. Shavlik for first degree arson. Ms. Yahyavi, never disclosed that the lead detective  David Fontenot was a Brady Cop, and that the County’s main witness Rebecca Bradshaw was a paid informant.

Thankfully for Ms. Shavlik one juror was a highly educated Engineer who later said ” this was bullshit. There was nothing here.” Those of you who know me, know I am partial to engineers not only because my engineer is my most loved treasure, but because persons that are trained in hard sciences are critical thinkers who analysis even small pieces of evidence.

That Engineer saved Ms. Shavlik’s life by holding out for days until the Judge called it a deadlock jury.  Instead of the Prosecutors’ leaving well enough alone, Francesca Yadavvi recharged Ms. Shavlik in a second trial in February 2016.

The Gold Bar Reporter was in the audience watching as Brady Cop David Fontenot and Prosecutor Yahyavi paraded witness after witness on the stand to attest about what a bad business owner Ms. Shavlik was.  One witness named Dolly even told the jury that she was told by the Prosecutors that she would get money for her testimony.

In March 2016, 12 jurors acquitted Lori Shavlik of arson.

Early this year, Ms. Shavlik  started complaining that her insurance rates were over the roof. This prompted this question: have you looked at your criminal access searches and driving record from Washington State ?

When Lori Shavlik retrieved her driving record from the Washington State Department of Licensing she learned that Dawson Place Prosecutor Wallace Langbehn III had entered false information into Ms. Shavlik’s criminal history records, falsely claiming that she had plead guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

In a nutshell, Wallace Langbehn III entered into Ms. Shavlik’s criminal history records, via NCIC, that Ms. Shavlik had plead guilty to giving alcohol to minors. False.

Wallace Langbehn III falsely entered a conviction record into Ms. Shavlik’s NCIC records and he did so while assigned to Dawson Place, an alleged non-profit 501 (3) (c). A shrill money laundering company to further the efforts of Dawson Place and its racketeering members. Mainly Snohomish County Prosecutors and Judges and two  mobsters and attorneys G. Geoffrey Gibbs and Michael Kenyon.

Does this fit the definition of racketeering crimes?

Source: https://www.cga.ct.gov/2006/rpt/2006-R-0484.htm

 

The federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) (18 USC §§ 1961-1968) prohibits (1) acquiring, establishing, or operating an enterprise with illegally derived income, (2) acquiring or maintaining an interest in or control of an enterprise through illegal activity, and (3) using an enterprise to commit illegal acts (Extortion, Blackmail, Etc., 31A Am Jur 2d).

RICO defines “racketeering activity” as a long list of state and federal crimes. The federal crimes include bribery, various fraud offenses, gambling offenses, money laundering, a number of financial and economic crimes, obstructing justice or a criminal investigation, murder for hire, and sexual exploitation of children. The state crimes include murder, kidnapping, gambling, arson, robbery, bribery, extortion, dealing in obscene matter, and drug crimes.

It defines a “pattern of racketeering activity” as at least two acts of racketeering activity, one of which occurred after RICO became law and the last of which occurred within 10 years after the prior act.

“racketeering activity” means committing, attempting to commit, conspiring to commit, or intentionally aiding, soliciting, coercing, or intimidating another person to commit a specified list of felonies. These felonies include gambling activities, extortion, drug offenses, weapons offenses, murder, assault, prostitution, hazardous waste violations, securities violations, coercion, money laundering, arson, bribery, and forgery

“Pattern of racketeering activity” means engaging in at least two incidents of racketeering activity that (1) have the same or similar purposes, results, participants, victims, or methods of commission or otherwise are interrelated by distinguished characteristics; (2) are not isolated incidents; (3) include at least one incident that occurred after October 1, 1982; and (4) occurred within five years of a prior incident of racketeering activity (CGS § 53-394(e)).

“Collusion” is not defined in either RICO, although the word “collusion” is used in a number of state contracting statutes. The Blacks Law Dictionary definition of “collusion” includes a “secret combination, conspiracy, or concert of action between two or more persons for fraudulent or deceitful purpose.” This type of conduct would appear to be covered by RICO 


 

Wallace Langbehn III, Sean Reay, Mark Roe, Adam Cornell, Mike Kenyon, Shannon Ragonesi, Ann Marie Soto, and Snohomish County Judges were contacted and all declined comment.

Snohomish County government making Adolf Hitler proud

The truth is sometimes a hard pill to swallow. It sometimes causes us difficulties at home and abroad. It is sometimes used by our enemies in attempts to hurt us. But the American people are entitled to it, nonetheless. 

-John McCain 


 

” We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ” Plato

Two such judicial officers right here in Snohomish County Washington are Judge Janice Ellis and Judge George Appel.  Adolf Hitler would quite proud on how our American judicial system has progressed in favor of the state.

 


A few weeks ago, the Gold Bar Reporter broke the story of a so called 501 (3)  ( c) titled  http://dawsonplace.org/.

“Dawson Place was the best kept secret” Mark Roe attested to under oath in Shavlik/West v Dawson Place.  What disgraced ( and recently resigned) former Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe was referring to was a shadow government agency titled Dawson Place. This allows the County to cherry pick which cases to prosecute or which cases to sweep under the rug when Dawson Place is a participant in criminal complaints.

The true purpose of setting up Dawson Place as a non-profit is two fold.

First, there’s no doubt that Dawson Place is being used to set up defendants. Imagine this: Dawson Place, an alleged 501 (3) (  c)   has Prosecutors inside, has law enforcement inside, and a store front political appointee of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s childhood friend Lori Vanderburg.

Here’s how Dawson Place works. Snohomish County government refers all rape and sexually abuse allegations to Dawson Place. An alleged non-profit. At Dawson Place an alleged victim fills out an intake form.  The intake form is sent to the Prosecutors, Sheriff’s department, and to Dawson Place’s political director ( and childhood friend of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe).

Compass Health performs medical evaluations on the alleged victims, most of the time. However, to get to the medical evaluation, first a interview is set up by Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.  The interview is recorded by video means.

By claiming that Dawson Place is a non-profit group, the video is withheld under RCW 42.56 claiming that its not a public record.  Participants of this interview includes Snohomish County prosecutors and sheriff’s officers inside Dawson Place, an alleged non-profit group.

But if this doesn’t strike readers as being a gross deprivation of due process rights of the accused, here’s a few more facts about how the Prosecutors and Sheriff’s Officers are fixing the entire case against those accused of child abuse and rape.


Other participants in violating the rights of the accused, Compass Health,  Victim Support Services and Snohomish County Public Defenders Association.  

Compass Health is simply a store front shrill so Snohomish County Prosecutors can fix cases against the accused.  Compass Health makes decisions about whether someone is competent to stand trial and whether or not a victim at Dawson Place has or has not been violated by the accused.

When a defendant is charged with molesting or rape of a child, Compass Health performs the mental health evaluation for Snohomish County Judiciary. The mental health evaluation is then sent to the trial judge for determination on whether a defendant is competent to stand trial.

We could find not one single case in which Compass Health did not state that a defendant was competent to stand trial when the case referral came from Dawson Place.

So imagine this. You are a defendant charged with the hideous crime of raping or molesting a child.  First point of order, Judge Appel or Judge Ellis are mainly assigned to as the trial judge in your case. They refer you over to Compass Health to obtain a mental health evaluation.  Compass Health is also in charge of collecting evidence on whether the victim who is alleging you either molested or raped them can move forward for physical evidence ( often sperm).

Second, this allows Snohomish County Prosecutors to fix all cases at all levels. And it only gets worse.

Imagine the Judge assigned to adjudicate your case never discloses to you that she or he also worked at Dawson Place and had helped start Dawson Place, this so called 501 (3) ( c).


If this inst bad enough, hold onto your seats.  After Dawson Place’s Board ( which includes Snohomish County Prosecutors and Sheriff) holds meetings and votes on whether to prosecute your case, it’s assigned often to a public defender.

Snohomish County Public Defenders Association’s Director/attorney and partner Vicki Norris is from the law firm of Anderson Hunter. Ms. Norris is married to a former partner from the Law Office of Anderson Hunter, Robert Leach. Mr. Leach  received a political appointment to Washington Court of Appeals Div. One. .

Robert Leach’s political appointment was made by Governor Christine Gregoire. Robert Leach’s gift to Ms. Gregoire included a deferral of a valid Bar complaint filed against Ms. Christine Gregoire. The Bar complaint was filed by attorney/.activist John Scannell. Allegations were that Gregoire missed a filing deadline costing the taxpayers of Washington State over $25,000,000.00 while she was the Attorney General of Washington State.

Vicki Norris, Judge Robert Leach’s wife was on the Washington State Bar Association’s Disciplinary Review Committee Gregoire’s Bar complaint was filed by Scannell.  Washington State Bar Association’s Review Committee makes decision on whether to proceed or not proceed with an investigation on the attorney member.

In the case of the Bar complaint attorney John Scannell filed against Governor Gregoire, Vicki Norris lost it or at least claimed she did.

At the time of Gregoire’s appointment of Robert Leach to Division One Court of Appeals, Robert Leach had zero judicial experience.  We call it what it is, a tit for tat political appointment for thwarting  a valid Bar complaint  against then Attorney General Christine Gregoire for costing the taxpayers of Washington State $25,000,000.00 for missing simple court deadlines.

The OK Boys Home lawsuits were settled as a result of AG Gregoire’s missing a simple deadline ( statute of limitations). However, what our readers should know is why the OK Boys became a law suit.  Inside the Ok Boys home, several foster boys made allegations of  sexual abuse against politicians from Olympia, and the main reason why Governor Gregoire’s decided to throw the case by missing a simple filing deadline. By doing so, this forced the State to settle the case.

This allowed a major cover up of known politicians who sexually abused foster boys inside the Ok Boys Home.  Soon we will release a list of politicians involved in molesting foster boys inside the Ok Boys Home, so hold onto your seats, grab some popcorn and beer, as this list is a list that  includes why terminated/disgraced former Dept of Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington has been extorting his way out of criminal prosecutions for years. Criminal prosecutions include abuse of women and children and killing 43 people in the Oso mudslides, because instead of doing his job, Pennington was off on east coast performing functions for FEMA.  The Office of Inspector General’s Office told the Gold Bar Reporter that any agency employee receiving a single dime  of federal money is not eligible for FEMA contracts; and Snohomish County Ordianace prohibits all salaried employees from working any other job.

But this list explains why mainly politicians like John E Pennington, Marlin Applewick, and Ken Hoover get a free pass on allegations of child abuse here in Washington State.

Simply put, Dawson Place perverts justice by making the workings inside Dawson Place not public record.

Not only does Dawson Place hide who filed the criminal complaints, but it also hides who those complaints were filed against i.e. politicians. As reported last week, it was set up by Snohomish County Prosecutor now Judge Janice Ellis with 95 % of public monies.

I rightfully call Dawson Place a sham, and by perverting justice by its set up, also argue that its guilty of Sherman Anti Trust violations. Perhaps the Gold Bar Reporter will file a taxpayer standing suit soon.

Now onto another scam 501 (3) (c), i.e. Victim Support Services (VSS). VSS receives its referrals solely from Snohomish County Prosecutors office as does Snohomish County public defense contracts.  In other words, not only does Snohomish County control and operate a secret organization titled Dawson Place, it also controls the Snohomish County Public Defenders contracts and VSS.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell has been quite busy learning how to thwart the legal rights of Defendants here in Snohomish County.  Up until we started investigating VSS, Adam Cornell was the Director  and Board Member of Victims Support Services. But it gets better, so too was a public defender named Tom Cox.

So imagine, you are charged with the crime of molesting or raping a child. Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office refers your criminal defense to Tom Cox or worse Phil Sayles. Both are supporters or Board Members of  VSS.  What a conflict to be supporting another alleged non-profit group  VSS, while at the same time hand picked by the Snohomish County Prosecutors Office to defend criminal prosecutions against the accused.

Overall, here’s our findings. Snohomish County Government decides who gets assigned to defend you when you’re charged with a crime. The taxpayers are paying for your defense, and it Snohomish County that hand picks which incompetent public defender gets assigned.  Seldom do you the accused get a public defender who hasn’t failed the Bar countless times, nor do you get to have someone defend you who hasn’t been referred by Snohomish County Prosecutors.

We rightfully call this case fixing at every level. With the cards stacked against the accused, is there such a thing as a fair trial?  If true, should not the officials involved herein be prosecuted for violating the civil rights of the accused or charged with RICO?

 


Snohomish County’s Malicious Prosecution of Immigrant Ramanveer Bains

Good morning Saudi Arabia,  Snohomish County Washington has a lot in common i.e. fixing cases to condemn the accused for life. Thankfully because of Governor Jay Inslee’s moratorium against the death penalty, Snohomish County wont be able to put you to death.

See https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/washington-governor-announces-moratorium-executions

 

In June 2017, Snohomish County activist/journalist Lori Shavlik discovered what’s really happening inside Dawson Place i.e. Snohomish County Child Advocacy Services.  In 2017, Lori Shavlik field suit against Dawson Place for access to public records. She correctly alleged that Dawson Place is a secret government agency hiding behind non-profit status ( 501 (3) ( c).

Ms. Shavlik correctly pointed out that Snohomish County Prosecutors started Dawson Place and they did so with 95 % of public monies.  The total amount of public monies Dawson Place has received thus far exceeds 27 million.  She also pointed out that Dawson Place performs mainly government functions of law enforcement and prosecutor decisions.

Strangely most the millions of public monies received by Dawson Place never make it to its tax returns.

Much of what was reported herein would not have been possible without her persistent digging inside public records.


In November 2017, the Gold Bar Reporter sat in the audience listening to oral argument in Shavlik/West v Dawson Place. The issue: is Dawson Place public agency under Our Supreme Court’s Telford holding, thus subject to RCW 42.56 ( the Public Records Act).

For those not familiar with Telford’s holding, here’s a link that might help:

http://joethomas.org/2016/02/washington-public-records-quasi-govermnet-agency-test/ 

Every judge inside Snohomish County voluntarily disqualified themselves except Judge George Appel and Judge Cindy Larson.

Public records from various news sources confirm that both Cindy Larsen and Judge George Appel worked inside Dawson Place as prosecutors for Snohomish County.  Judge Janice Ellis, while acting as prosecutor in Snohomish County, started Dawson Place with former Prosecutor Seth Dawson. Hence how Dawson Place got its name. For those of who knew Seth Dawson as the corrupt prosecutor he is, naming Dawson Place after him was just a little booster.

Ellis starts Dawson Place

There’s no doubt about it, Judge Janice Ellis helped Prosecutor Seth Dawson start  Dawson Place.  She did so with mainly public monies.  She solicited public monies in violation of Washington State’s Public Disclosure laws, thumbed her nose at the rule of law, and misappropriated hundreds of thousands of public resources to help start Dawson Place.

The Gold Bar Reporter reported Judge Janice Ellis’s involvement in all of this a few weeks ago.

See https://goldbarreporter.org/2018/08/

Since the above expose’ on Dawson Place, the Gold Bar Reporter has since learned that there are countless cases that should be investigated, one such case is the case against Ramanveer Bains.

For those of my readers who have a slant against Muslims, please don’t send hate mail, unless you’d like your comments public. In addition, please note that the Gold Bar Reporter’s ancestors were German and Austrian immigrants. In other words, the Gold Bar Reporter doesn’t have time for your hatred based solely on religious beliefs and attempts to control the Biblical story.

My only God is ” justice” and she sees nor has any favored religion nor favored color of a human’s skin to distinguish  between who gets justice inside our courtrooms and who does not.   Justice is defined by honest services. As my readers can see, honest services is something missing inside Snohomish County Washington. Why is simple, because instead of prosecuting criminals, attorneys are siphoning public money and holding kangaroo proceedings with incompetent defense attorneys whose only interest is not working or just simply incompetent like Phil Sayles ( Division One held that Sayles was ineffective assistance of counsel, a disbarable event).


Judge George Appel’s crimes against Ramanveer Bains

Appel (2)

the above opinion letters were signed by Snohomish County employees, Detective R. Lewis, Christopher Yue, Keri Wallace, Kaia Scott, Amanda Harpell, and Cindy Larsen and was originally posted on https://www.heraldnet.com/opinion/appel-works-with-child-advocates/

Ramanveer Bains was first accused of raping a 12 year old boy. There was no  physical evidence of a rape, confirmed by Compass Health. Instead of admitting that Snohomish County screwed up, under the disgraced and retired Lisa Paul, Snohomish County Prosecutors decided the best way cover up their conspiracy to harm an immigrant was to prosecute Mr Bains on a lesser charge.  But there was only one problem, the 12 year old child gave over six (6) different stories and none amounted to Mr. Bains being guilty of anything except a 12 year old child being lonely after school friending a neighbor who happens to be a Muslim immigrant.

Another journalist sat down with Ramanveer Bains last week and learned that he doesn’t speak nor understand English. Although not the central point of this article, we did run a check on his court record and found no evidence that Mr. Bains was offered nor received an interpreter.  What Mr. Bains did receive was a clean bill of health from Compass Health stating that he was competent to stand trial.

Trial begins. Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office hand picks the public defender.  Neil Patterson and Tom Cox.

In the Bains appeal,  who is better equipped to throw the case but a known member of the County’s little scam, attorney Tom Cox.  Tom Cox, as my readers may recall, is also a good friend to Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell, and both served on Victim Support Services Board together.

So imagine this. Mr. Baines has a public defender and good friend of the lead Dawson Place prosecutor Adam Cornell assigned by Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office to defend against allegations that he molested or sought sexual gratification from a 12 year boy.  Snohomish County started Dawson Place. Dawson Place decides who gets prosecuted and who doesn’t; Dawson Place, Snohomish County Prosecutors and Sheriff’s Officers meet and vote on whether to prosecute you or not. They do this behind closed doors and then claim that this Board is not subject to the Open Public Meetings Act.   Once the decision is made to prosecute you, Snohomish County assigns you the accused to Compass Health. Compass Health is also a participant on whether or not there’s enough evidence to proceed with a criminal prosecution of you or not.  However, once Snohomish County/ Dawson Place files the complaint against you the accused, Snohomish County Judiciary shuffles you the accused back to Compass Health for a competency test. Compass Health is allowed to makes decisions on whether to prosecute and also whether you are competent to stand trial .

Fixing cases, or money laundering or perhaps both?

After Compass Health decides that you the accused are competent ( as there is no case where Compass Health ever held that a defendant wasn’t competent to stand trial), next point of order from our good friends inside Snohomish County is what judge will be assigned.

 

Lo and behold, two Judges are almost always assigned to adjudicate Dawson Place cases, Judge George Appel and Judge Janice Ellis. Remember from the above Herald opinion piece, Judge Appel worked inside Dawson Place, and from my past article from August 2018, Judge Janice Ellis started Dawson Place and had a pecuniary interest by way of a 12 % loan.

Not once did Judge George Appel disclose his participation in Dawson Place to Mr. Bains.

For Mr. Bains, this little racketeering scheme denied him access to Justice.  Judge George Appel never not once disclosed to Ramanveer Bains or in a open hearing that he worked inside Dawson Place. Perhaps if Mr. Bains had known, he might have exercised his right to ‘ disqualify a Snohomish County judge as a matter of right once.” But Mr. Bain did not because Judge George Appel did not disclose that while he was a Prosecutor he worked  inside Dawson Place. Obviously, if you’re a corrupt judge, you can’t fix cases if the accused is informed, and as for Ramanveer Bains, a man who speaks little English, he was doomed from the get go.

Doomed, not only because George Appel thought it was justifiable to violate the rights of the accused, but also because Mr. Bains’s does not understand English, and with the anti-Muslim rhetoric in this so called American democracy lately,  Mr. Bains had no idea about this little racketeering scam he was up against.

In 2016, Ramanveer Bains was convicted not of child rape as originally pursued by our disgraceful excuse for Prosecutors, but for sexual gratification involving a minor.  But wait, one last piece of information, the 12 year child was interviewed six (6) times yielding a different statement in all six interviews.  The Prosecutor used only the interview that supported its position, and then hide the rest under seal from the jury, and Judge Appel squashes any attempt to include the other six interviews. Thus, fixing the case against Mr. Bains.

As for Mr. Bains so called public defender, he did nothing except agree to “seal Dawson Place interviews” so that Mr. Bains could not use the interviews to support his appeal.

Mr. Bains remains imprisoned for a crime he may or may not have committed. With the cards stacked against the accused, we may never know if Mr. Bains committed the crime he was found guilty of.  Until Mr. Bains gets a fair trial, we shall never know.

We do however know that Ramanveer Bains had no past criminal history whatsoever.

You decide is this is our so called American Democracy or not?  The only advocate on the 9th Circuit for Justice was the former Chief Justice Alex Kozinski, but false allegations against Justice Kozinski managed to conspire to push him out of the 9th Circuit.

We are going to make the sun shine again in Snohomish County

 


 

In 2017, we started investigating Dawson Place as Snohomish County’s little domestic spy organization, and in 2018, we affirmatively had uncovered much more, including siphoning of public monies in favor of Anderson Hunter Law Firm, mainly G. Geoffrey Gibbs.  Geoffrey Gibbs was convicted of fraud by the Washington State Attorney General’s Office during the 1990s and suspended from Lobbying permanently as a result. Gibbb’s crimes including shuttling terminated John E. Pennington and Court of Appeals Justice Marlin Appelwick to a brothel just outside Portland Oregon to have sex with under age women.

In my opinion, anyone who travels interstate to have sex with underage girls is a pedophile and involved in child sex trafficking. An issue for later articles.

But ask readers to think long and hard why Snohomish County set up Dawson Place, and check the FBI stats on reports of child sex abuse cases.  Reporting the truth doesn’t sell houses, and from past public records from Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s house, its clear he and his wife Lisa Paul have been given inside information from the developers on what land deals to make.  Roe and Paul profited in excess of $500,000.00 by given a scent from the developers early plans to develop Goodwin Lake in Stanwood.

One of the same issues that gave rise to the investigation of Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill ( convicted of bank fraud in 2000, 2005).  At the time we started investigating Crystal Hill for fraud, it was clear based on her actions in favor of the developers that she had an interest in annexing unincorporated Gold Bar.  Ms. Hill even threatened a Gold Bar Planning Commissioner who opposed her plans to develop.

“For the powerful, crimes are those that others commit” Noam Chomsky

Well, well, it’s no surprise, a couple more cockroaches from Snohomish County Washington government trying to obtain “political courtesy” to thwart criminal laws in their favor.

In late June 2018, Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Christopher Dickinson was arrested for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.  He was found in the car outside the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office with his keys in the ignition, apparently waiting for his girlfriend, another Snohomish County employee, who was arrested for operating a motorboat on Lake Chelan while intoxicated.   

Making matters worse, Dickinson lied to the Chelan Sheriff’s Officer, denying he was driving, instead told officers that a friend drove.  After that didn’t work, “He began to demand that I acknowledge that he was a lawyer” a Sheriff’s Deputy said in his report.

Dickson’s blood alcohol content was 0.15 — about twice the legal limit – booked into the Chelan County Regional Justice Center in Wenatchee and later released.

 

Dickinson was initially placed on administrative leave pending an investigation at Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office.  Dickinson’s arrest occurred while he was being paid by the taxpayers of Snohomish County to attend a conference in Lake Chelan.  With no surprise to those of us who actually report the news here in Washington State, the conference was sponsored by the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys. An organization in charge of training prosecutors; appears the organization is failing. 

Dickson said he was waiting for his girlfriend, who had been taken into custody about 12:45 a.m. on suspicion of boating under the influence. At the time of the arrest, Dickson had given his girlfriend legal advice immediately following her arrest to refuse a breathalyzer.

The 36-year-old woman had been arrested near South Lakeshore Road in Chelan,  after the boat she operated side swiped a dock.  Chelan County Sheriff’s officer said ” she was so drunk she could barely stand…” 

Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office placed Dickson on paid administrative leave pending an internal investigation two weeks ago.  Yesterday Dickson was fired after Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe said ” All I can say is an incident took palce that left me disappointed and angry  at one person. ” Very strange since Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe he himself was arrested for drunk driving in King County 2008, arrested and booked, but managed to call in a favor from King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg to avoid jail.

According to King County Prosecutor’s Office, ” even first time drunk drivers in our county get one day in jail….”  Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe must be special, as he never served a single day in jail after pleading to drunk driving in King County Washington.

Brings us right back to the quote from America’s greatest political  philosopher’s “For the powerful, crimes are those that others commit.

 

Snohomish County Mark Roe is a hypocrite – more criminals in charge.

Definition of hypocrite

 

1 : a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion

2 : a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings

 

 

Gold Bar Washington Mayor William Clem caught falsifying state filings

Over the last couple of months, Gold Bar’s new Mayor William Clem, a State Farm Agent, from Monroe Washington, has been drinking the polluted water from the City of Gold Bar.

Bill Clem State Farm

William Clem, Mayor of Gold Bar

” Those people who are threatening you, are now threatening me”  William Clem was referring to Association of Washington Cities attorneys Shannon Ragonesi, Ann Marie Soto, Michael Kenyon, and Amanda Butler


Early this year, Gold Bar’s new Mayor William Clem sat down for a one on one meeting with the Gold Bar Reporter to discuss the state of affairs inside Gold Bar. During this meeting, William Clem confirmed that the former Mayor Joe Beavers, a convicted felon from Texas, had misappropriated over $1,500,000.00 of Gold Bar’s water funds to hide email communication.

 

According to one council member, Snohomish County obtained through electronic means medical records on the Gold Bar Reporter’s family members, and copied and pasted the Gold Bar Reporter’s name to those files, and disseminated those files via email from Snohomish County Law’s clerk Barbara Johnson and Crystal Hill in March 2009.

After Crystal Hill and terminated/disgraced Director of Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington took the illegally obtained medical files, they copied and pasted the Gold Bar Reporter’s name to those files, attempting to create a fake identity.  Then Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay had Snohomish County Sheriff Officer Rodney Rochan pass the fake identity off the NCIS Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX).

William Clem said ” the lawyers refuse to return our records to the City of Gold Bar, and I’m going to hire a new lawyer to obtain a subpoena and have Gold Bar’s records returned.”

In one case, involving Shavlik v Gold Bar, Snohomish County Superior Court, William Clem admitted that Gold Bar’s public records officer, Bonnie Jones did knowingly tamper with Gold Bar’s public records by removing metadata from email communication sent from Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill and a clerk at Snohomish Law.

Bonnie Jones, aka Bonnie Scruggs, aka Bonnie Dierkson is a convicted felon from California and Hawaii, who was hand picked by Association of Washington Cities (AWC) to tamper with and hide public records inside the City of Gold Bar.

When William Clem was asked about why AWC would want to hide email communication,  Clem said ” to limit liability .”  When Clem was asked where the City was hiding Gold Bar’s public records, he said ” at the lawyers office in Issaquah, Washington.”

Michael Kenyon’s Office is located at 11 S Front St, Issaquah Washington.

In 2009, Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg convicted of bank fraud, 2000, 2005) was engaged in several extramarital affairs with former Executive Aaron Reardon, John E Pennington, and Gold Bar’s former police chief. Once source inside Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office said ” Adam Cornell  and Sean Reay were also fucking Crystal. She was doorknob.”  Crystal Hill’s extramarital affairs were all with married men.

Three months ago, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officers turned over for the first time Crystal Hill’s ACCESS criminal history searches performed after she abused a six year old child in her car, plead to criminally harassing another, and after she plead guilty to and was arrested for bank fraud.

It was a perfect storm for the poor little town of Gold Bar, as there is little that the City canT get over on the Gold Bar Reporter, a person with a Juris Doctorate degree, education in this case has proven vital to exposing Crystal Hill Pennington’s crimes against Gold Bar, and federal taxpayers ( as Hill falsified FEMA contracts totaling over $100,000.00 ).

In February 2018, Snohomish County Superior Court held that the City of Gold Bar illegally withheld 585 public records from the Gold Bar Reporter for over five years, and penalties and attorney fees and cost exceed $1.5 million dollars, and this is just one case.


 

After Gold Bar’s new Mayor and Monroe Washington State Farm Agent William Clem admitted to several of us over dinner that he was being threatened by AWC and its attorneys Shannon Ragonesi, Amanda Butler, Michael Kenyon and Ann Marie Soto, we soon learned why William Clem had every reason to be extorted.

Last month, we learned from the Washington State Insurance Commissioner that William Clem was filing false statements with various state and local government offices, once inside Snohomish County Elections, Washington State Public Disclosure Commission and with the Washington State Insurance Commission.

Arrow6901 block_REDACTED  

When William Clem ran for Gold Bar’s uncontested Mayoral seat Clem listed his home address as Gold Bar.  But according to the Insurance Commission, William Clem’s home address is located in Everson Washington as of December 2017, not in Gold Bar as he claimed on his Public Disclosure filings and Insurance Commission filings listed Everson Washington in December 2017.

If we caught these false filings, so too did AWC and its attorneys.  Once inside source said ” Bill was threatened more than once inside public emails by Shannon Ragonesi…” Another source said ” Bonnie Jones was placed inside to continue the efforts of tampering with public records for Joe Beavers and AWC. She was hand picked by Beavers after it was apparent that Linda Loen was too high to function.”  Linda Loen was Gold Bar’s Mayor from January 2014 to March 16, 2016. On March 16 2018, the day Snohomish County Superior Court held that the City of Gold Bar and its public records officers violated Gold Bar Reporter’s rights to access public records by withholding public records for over five years, Linda Loen abruptly resigned as the Mayor of Gold Bar, abandoned her home in Gold Bar and purchased with cash a new home located in Aberdeen Washington.  Linda Loen was unemployed the entire time she lived in Gold Bar, but all of the sudden purchases a new house with cash, abandoning her home in Gold Bar ( that still remains vacate as of today). Sounds like a pay off from our good friends at AWC and its attorneys.

Why Attorney Michael Kenyon decided to hide Gold Bar’s public records was simple. Michael Kenyon had helped Crystal Hill’s married squeeze in covering up his rape of a 5 year child in Cowlitz County Washington in 1992.

The Gold Bar Reporter was first to report on Michael Kenyon’s assisting John E. Pennington with quashing criminal charges after he violently beat a third trimester pregnant Duvall Council member.

 

 

 

 

 

Whistleblower turns over public records involving criminal history of former mayor; Snohomish Herald published an intentionally false story as a “wag the dog” diversion as a political favor

scott-north_jpeg_256x256_q100_crop-smart

In July 2009, Scott North, from the Snohomish County Herald admits he personally approved this false story about Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill  resigning citing harassment. Why was simply stated by another Snohomish County insider  who said   “Scott North is lazy and has been wined and dined by Snohomish County Prosecutors Jason Cummings, Mark Roe, and North has his head up Adam Cornell ass so far, I’m surprised he can breathe. It’s common knowledge that Crystal Hill was being passed around like a door mat…” a Snohomish County insider who we have dub ” Fed up” told the Gold Bar Reporter earlier this week.

For those of us who live and work inside Snohomish County, it’s pretty clear that the Herald is a failing newspaper since Scott North took it over. If Donald Trump had one issue right, he is correct that America no longer has news reporters.  Fake news.

Scott North’s actions below illustrate quite nicely North’s interest is not truth in reporting, it’s rubbing shoulders with political officials so he does have to work for a living.  Fake news President Trump complains about.

 


 

Imagine a convicted criminal named Crystal Hill, citing for harassment, convicted of bank fraud, and had a warrant issued for her arrest, is citing harassment because our investigation of her yields the below truths about her criminal acts.

What does the Herald report, poor little convicted damsel in distress, had to resign because we caught Crystal Hill misappropriating Gold Bar monies.

 

As the Honorable US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Scalia said in Referendum 71 Question: If you don’t like the heat in the kitchen, don’t get involved in politics.

 


As falsely reported by the Herald, here in Snohomish County, in July 2009

 

Gold Bar Mayor resigns citing harassment

 

Gold BAR — Mayor Crystal Hill resigned this week, citing relentless harassment from someone who claims to live in the small mountain town.

Hill, 30, says the person using an alias has been bombarding her, her family and her Seattle employer with e-mails making claims about her personal life.

She said the person has accused her of drug use, supplying drugs to city staff and having an affair with a fired city employee.

Those allegations are false, Hill said, adding that she feels she has little recourse to fight them as a public official in the town of 2,400 people.

She also said she’s been followed and watched in her home and fears for her children, ages 11 and 6.

She also said she’s been followed and watched in her home and fears for her children, ages 11 and 6.

“It got to the point we don’t know if we are going to get a brick through the window,” said Hill, who turned in a resignation letter on Monday, five months before her term was to expire.

Hill said she believes the person who is sending the e-mails under the alias Michael Broaks is connected with a blog critical of the city. The woman who runs the blog fled a lawsuit against the city for withholding public information and has made 47 public records requests since July 2008.

The blogger said she has never e-mailed or followed Hill or her family. She’s fighting corruption as a public watchdog, she said.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office investigated Hill’s complaints, said Kevin Prentiss, a sheriff’s office spokesman. The case was closed because of insufficient information, he said.

Kelly Broyles, the Gold Bar planning commission chairman, said Hill has been an effective mayor in the midst of difficult circumstances.

“I don’t always agree with her decisions but I believe she has made decisions based on what she thinks is best for the city,” he said. Hill said she believes the blogger’s multiple public records requests are an abuse of the public records law and a form of harassment.

So far, the lawsuit, alleging the city had withheld documents during a public records request, has cost the city about $55,000 in attorney fees, according to the city.

“This has not been about documents,” Hill said. “This is a means to harass me and the city.”

Hill plans to finish her bachelor’s degree and attend law school. She’s working part-time now as a paralegal in Seattle.

 

When Hill took over as mayor in 2006, she inherited a cash-strapped city. Since then, she said, she’s left the city books in better shape. She said she put in 60-hour weeks as mayor. The job pays $300 a month.

“I think I’ve done a good job,” she said. “I’ve worked really, really hard. I just have to be a mom and my family needs to come first.”

Councilman Joe Beavers, as mayor pro-tem, is expected to fill in as mayor for the rest of Hill’s term. The council expects to select a mayor pro-tem from the remainder of the City Council on Tuesday night. Then, the council has 60 days to appoint someone to fill the open city council seat until January.


 

Truth and reporting, New York Times v Sullivan

From July 2016 to April 23, 2013, John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) made countless attempts to have the Gold Bar Reporter restrained from reporting on their criminal racketeering conduct ( some of which is outlines herein).  On April 23, 2017, Pierce County District Court held that the Gold Bar Reporter was in fact a news reporter protected under the First Amendment.

In other words, the Penningtons,  now 4th attempt to obtain a ” prior restraint” against the Free Press  ( Gold Bar Reporter) was DENIED for the 4th time on April 23, 2017 in Pierce County District Court.  John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington are beng sued for RICO now pending in the 9th Circuit.

In July 2009, Scott North knew at the time was that Ms. Hill Pennington ( Crystal Berg) had quite the little extensive criminal history, which included allegations of “harassment” many years before she became Mayor.

What we learned last year was that Crystal Hill Pennington filled out an online application to be a contractor for FEMA, teaching Emergency Management Classes.
So imagine, US taxpayer monies are being used to fund a convicted criminal, who plead guilty to bank fraud ( 2000,2005) ,and should have been charged with child abuse.

A complaint has been filed with the Office of Inspector General citing “fraud” against Crystal Hill Pennington, because according to US Office of Procurement, persons guilty of fraud are NOT eligible for any federal contracts.

 Truth is an affirmative defense, the Gold Bar Reporter has never been sued. 


Pages from SO08-24992_Redacted

In November 2008, Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill did violently and criminally assault a child in her care. Gold Bar’s Chief received a criminal complaint against Crystal Hill for abusing a six year child in her care. Because Gold Bar’s police Chief was involved in an extra-marital affair with Crystal Hill,  he asked for the case to be referred to another Snohomish County Sheriff Officer, Jeff Ross.

Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer Jeff Ross received extensive physician reports documenting that while Ms. Hill was babysitting the six year old girl, Crystal Hill did violently and intentionally assault a six year old child in her care.

In 2009, the Gold Bar Reporters heard a little chatter about Crystal Hill’s extensive history of abusing children from a former lover of Ms. Hill’s named Fleshman Cooper.

According to Cooper’s ex-wife, ” Crystal consistently abused our children while they were in the care of  Fleshman, and Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office knew it.  After complaints for abuse were filed with Snohomish County,  Fleshman was left with either loosing joint custody or disposing of Crystal. Thankfully, he chose his children.”

In 2008, then Mayor Crystal Hill covered up Karl Majerle’s sabotaging of the City’s water system here in Gold Bar.  Why is simple, Karl Majerle was extorting Mayor Hill with exposing her past criminal history. . A criminal history that involves bank fraud in two states, Washington and North Carolina, 2000, and 2005, respectively.  In North Carolina, Ms. Hill spent time jail after failing to adhere to her criminal diversion program.  According to North Carolina, Crystal Hill still owes the state $109. 00 for court fines relating to the same.

Gold Bar’s current public records officer Bonnie Jones stated ” I’m not turning over Crystal Hill’s nude photos between her and Karl Majerle.”

For almost ten years, Crystal Hill Pennigton ( nee Berg) has spent the last ten years criminally stalking me on a foe online newspaper set up by Aaron Reardon, a Seattle Times reporter named Christopher Schwarzen, and John E. Pennington titled the ” Sky Valley Chronicle.”

According to Gold Bar City Clerk Denise Beaston,  Gold Bar’s new Mayor Joe Beavers was allowed to log in and post any article he so desired. When asked under oath in December of 2016 whether or not he was a “blogger’ on the Sky Valley Chronicle, Joe Beavers had to admit he was cyber-stalking the Gold Bar Reporter.

Why can be best described as racketeering, covering up and quashing criminal charges by Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe, Seth Fine, Miguel Tempski, Adam Cornell, and Sara Di Vittorio as political favors.

According to an insider who gave an interview last week after we caught Snohomish County Prosecutor Caroline Darrow and Amy Nay withholding public records involving the County ‘s prosecutor’s little RICO scam, Snohomish County Prosecutors are withholding public records only when Washlite Board members Lori Shavlik, Arthur West and I request access to public records.   The whistleblower gave an interview saying ” I sick of it….”

The whistleblower clearly gave us what we needed to prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that Snohomish County Prosecutors are tampering with public records only when Shavlik, West or the Gold bar Reporter requests records.

Last week, a whistleblower gave us access to public records Snohomish County illegally withheld involving Snohomish County’s Director of Emergency Management Director John E Pennington’s ACCESS criminal history searches and copies of Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill’s criminal ACCESS files. All public records that Sara Di Vittorio and the Snohomish County Prosecutors and Sheriff’s Office withheld from the Gold Bar Reporter for over nine years.  Our lawyer tells us that there are no statute of limitations on silent withholding, thus a new lawsuit is being pursued.

 

In January 2016, newly elected Executive Dave Somers terminated John E. Pennington after public records released document John Pennington did nothing except criminal harass Gold Bar Reporter, right from Snohomish County offices and with use of county taxpayer resources.

It was a perfect storm for the poor little town of Gold Bar, as there is little that the City can get over on the Gold Bar Reporter, a person with a Juris Doctorate degree, education in this case has proven vital to exposing Crystal Hill’s crimes against Gold Bar.

But Ms. Hill didn’t cover up her criminal history by herself. Ms. Hill had the assistance of Sean Reay, a Snohomish County Prosecutor who is married to the head of Evergreen District Court Laura Twindale. When the below criminal prosecution file was sent to Ms. Twinsdale, she looked the other way as a political favor to then Executive Aaron Reardon. Of course at the bequest of her husband and Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay ( police reports show this case was sent to Reay first).

In December 2008, Crystal Hill moved in with married Snohomish County Director of Emergency Management John E. Pennington.  Instead of resigning as Gold Bar’s Mayor, Ms. Hill forged public disclosures filings, and refused to resign her seat until July 2009.  All Mayors must be living inside the City.

Former director John E. Pennington’s criminal history, a man who just cant seem to keep his hands to himself.

Gold Bar’s then Mayor wanna be Joe Beavers assisted Crystal Hill with not reporting the sabotaging of the City’s water system – a federal crime- covering up Ms. Hill’s criminal history.   Karl Majerle was extorting Crystal Hill with releasing to the public what he knew about her criminal history, and he was also engaged in an extra marital affair with Hill, according to a neighbor.

Why is best described by former council member Jay Prueher ” Joe wanted to be Mayor so bad, he made a deal with Crystal.  Crystal was stealing from the City…”

In late 2013, the Washington State Auditor’s office issued findings against the City of Gold Bar stating inside its audit report ” there’s $200,000.00 missing from the City and not one employee can state where it went.”

Over the last ten years, Snohomish County Prosecutors Office, Sean Reay, Miquol Tempski, Sara Di Vittorio,  Adam Cornell, Mark Roe, and employees Amy Nay,, Dayna Tapendorf, and Tina Murphy have been trying get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with harassment for investigating and reporting on their racketeering conduct ( fraud, honest services violations, criminal harassment, extorting Bar licenses, and countless perjury statements filed in Pierce, King and Snohomish counties), and now with the latest release of former Mayor Crystal Hill’s criminal history, we are now a little closer to helping Gold Bar survive before they bankrupt the little City of Gold Bar with their racketeering crimes committed against the Gold Bar Reporter for reporting the truth .

Below is part of the extensive racketeering crimes John E Pennington, Joe Beavers, Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) and countless lawyers, including Mike Kenyon, Ann Marie Soto, Linda Eide, Lin O’Dell, Doug Ende, Supreme Court Justice Barbara Madsen, Seth Fine, Sean Reay, Shannon Ragonesi, Amanda Butler, Margaret King, and Miquol Tempski.

 

Pierce College, Tacoma, instructor, caught forging court record

penny

John E. Pennington, terminated from FEMA and Snohomish County for conduct unbecoming of a public officer, now caught forging documents with Pierce County District Court


 

John E. Pennington, an instructor with Pierce College,  caught forging a court record last week in Tacoma, Washington.

It all started when the Gold Bar Reporter did what we’re supposed to do as a journalist, contacted him for comment about an upcoming article involving his false academic credentials.  Credentials John Pennington placed into public records at Pierce College, fraudulently obtaining a teaching position, a crime in Washington State.

RCW 9A.60.070

False academic credentials—Unlawful issuance or use—Definitions—Penalties.

(1) A person is guilty of issuing a false academic credential if the person knowingly
(a) Grants or awards a false academic credential or offers to grant or award a false academic credential in violation of this section;
(b) Represents that a credit earned or granted by the person in violation of this section can be applied toward a credential offered by another person;
(c) Grants or offers to grant a credit for which a representation as described in (b) of this subsection is made; or
(d) Solicits another person to seek a credential or to earn a credit the person knows is offered in violation of this section.

According to Pierce College, Tacoma,  John E. Pennington did fraudulently use false Academic credentials to obtain a position at the College by falsely submitting that he has accredited college degrees.

pennington-pierce-county-2

pierce-college-penny-credentials

John E. Pennington did knowingly falsify his academic credentials to Pierce College to obtain a employment, and is guilty of this crime as well.  

 



 

 

In 2005, the Seattle Times published a story about John Pennington’s academic school of choice correctly stating the IRS held that California Coastal College ( John E. Pennington’s online school of choice) sold degrees at a flat rate.”

See http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/local-fema-chief-had-little-disaster-experience/

False fraudulent academic diplomas managed to slip by former Executive Aaron Reardon ( who the Gold Bar Reporter proudly got rid of as the criminal harasser he is as evidenced by the Snohomish County Herald’s Feb 13, 2013 article http://201-dhwebvarnish.newscyclecloud.com/article/20130214/NEWS01/702149999 ) inside Snohomish County’s Emergency Management too.

This  contributed to the deaths (Black’s law dictionary, negligent homicide equates to killing) of 43 people in the Oso mudslides disaster. Had Snohomish County had an educated person at the helm of Emergency Management, 43 people would more than likely be alive today.

King County’s Major Crimes Unit public records document that Aaron Reardon’s executive officers had so much time on their hands to post defamatory articles on a website the trio set up titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle” – a website to control the political message in the Sky Valley ( Monroe to Index).

John E. Pennington’s wife Crystal Hill Pennington was anonymously cyber-stalking anyone who dared question Aaron Reardon’s gang of thieves. Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers admitted under oath a deposition two weeks ago that he too was cyber-stalking people on the Sky Valley Chronicle.

Crystal Hill Pennington’s deposition is scheduled for December 6, 2016, and an update will follow.

Now this, Pierce College Trustees hired a man with fake credentials who killed 43 people, beats on women and abuses our kids?  What the hell  is going on inside Washington State that a man who has harmed so many people is allowed to fraud our future leaders?

Our kids deserve much more, as such, the Gold Bar Reporter filed a complaint against Pierce College, Tacoma, with the U.S. Department of Education as this is fraud.

In 2013, John E. Pennington, a resident of Duvall, Washington, applied for a position on the Duvall Washington Library Board. Pennington’s application was rejected, the basis according to the Board Chair  ” he had no respect for the First Amendment.”

So its no surprise that once we started investigating John E. Pennington false credentials by requesting access to public records at Pierce College ( RCW 42.56), John E. Pennington committed more fraud, but this time on Pierce College’s dime.

On October 24, 2016, a forged Snohomish County Process of Service paper was filed by Penningtons whiting it out ( forgery)  knowingly falsely filing an instrument with a public office.

On October 27, 2016, John E. Pennington appeared in front of Pierce County District Court ( where he nor his wife resides), sworn in captured on video camera, falsely certifying under oath that he served the Gold Bar Reporter with his petition for restraining order  ( prior restraint on free speech prohibited in the U.S.), attempting to SLAPP down the Gold Bar Reporter’s message.

A First Amendment lawyer stated ” Prior Restraints on free speech in America are considered a violation of my civil rights.”

According to the Snohomish County Sherriff’s Office, John E. Pennington forged the original document, and the unforged document delivered to John Pennington is this one:

casey-original

After John E.Pennington forged the document:

10-14

rowexhibitnewimprovedversion_page_1

SLAPP suits carry a $10, 0000.00per offense penalty.  An issue we suspect John E. Pennington could care less about as public records document that he cant pay his mortgage, so what’s a judgment for $50K?

Congrads to Pierce College, Tacoma, Washington, not only did the Board of Trustees hire a child/wife abuser, they also hired a man now guilty of perjury and forgery.

The Gold Bar Reporter filed a new complaint in King County seeking damages, and a Writ and Injunction ordering Pierce County off this case as not one person John Pennington fraudulently obtained a restraining order against lives in Pierce County.

The Gold Bar Reporter is seeking an additional $50,000.00 from the marital community of the Crystal Hill and John E. Pennington’s for severe emotional distress.

Late yesterday, we learned that Pierce County District  ” vacated” the restraining order and there is a criminal felony investigation under way against John E. Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington (convicted of bank fraud,2005, 2000) and the case will be transferred to King County ( where according to the documents below, John E. Pennington has had countless criminal harassment complaints against him in King County).

John E. Pennington is the same political appointee who the Seattle Times quoted as saying Washington State’s largest slide area was “Considered very safe.”

As the Seattle Times reporter Mike Cater ( also the reporter who reported on Pennington fake academic credentials) wrote “It was considered very safe,” Pennington said. “This was a completely unforeseen slide. This came out of nowhere.”

John Pennington’s statements about the Oso mudslides were in complete contrast Daniel Miller, a geomorph­ologist, who wrote about Oso landslide conditions in his 1997 report for the Washington Department of Ecology and the Tulalip Tribes. Miller used reports and memos from the 1950s, 1960s, 1980s and 1990s, to support his 1997 report that the Oso area was unstable and should be evacuated.

Miller also stated that he was stunned and troubled to return to the area in 2006, to see new homes being built instead of  seeing homes being vacated.

Miller said “Frankly, I was shocked that the county permitted any building across from the river. . . It’s not unknown that this hazard exists.”

Miller contracted with the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Forest Service in 1997.

Immediately following the Oso mudslide disaster, the Gold Bar Reporter contacted Miller asking him ” if John E. Pennington’s email showed that he ( Pennington) approved building on the Oso mudslide area, do you think he should be charged with negligent homicide?   He said ” if you have that kind of email, then Jay Inslee should order an outside agency to investigate John Pennington’s background.”  We said ” we already did… and Snohomish County was aware that John Pennington had falsified his academic  credentials and had countless abuse charges filed against him for criminal harassment and beating women. ” Miller’s voice crackled, and he sounded scared or tearful and hung up.

Obviously, Pierce College ( Tacoma) is a public agency subject to RCW 42.56, the Public Records Act.  Too bad, John Pennington’s conduct is subject to public scrutiny.

Perhaps Pennington’s next job will actually require working, preferably in private industry, so several investigative reporters and I can sleep at night.  Our children are  worthy of our efforts to protect their future to be educated by people who have real college degrees.

Once the Department of Education issues its findings in this matter, it will be posted.  Fraud like this harms all of us, and dummies down the U.S. educational system and will not go unchecked by the Gold Bar Reporter.


 

For those of my readers who haven’t read my last articles on John Pennington’s criminal history, please see below.  The Gold Bar Reporter has NEVER been sued but welcome a suit. 

Pedophile 

John Pennington, terminated for Snohomish County

 


2000px-FEMA_logo_svg

From FEMA to Snohomish County Washington and now to Pierce College ( Tacoma Washington diploma mill), dark  secrets unearthed. Gold Bar Reporters were the first to report on John E. Pennington’s criminal conduct, a small portion of our report is outlined below


MEET JOHN ‘ THEODORE TED BUNDY” PENNINGTON

John Pennington was a troubled youth who, according to one source “had a major drug problem by the age of 16.”  So it’s no surprise that in the late 1980’s, after being kicked out of Vanderbilt College in Tennessee after raping a female college student, John Pennington moved to a small suburban city just outside of San Diego California.

While in the San Diego area,  John Pennington meets his new victim, who believe he legally married, so are calling her ex-wife # 1, Carla M.

Two years later, John Pennington fled from Southern California, again heading home to Nashville, only after two small boys made allegations of sexual abuse against him while on a church camping trip.

While in Tennessee, John Pennington made an unsuccessful run for an open State Rep. seat.  After a landslide loss for Pennington, he again headed west. This time to Oregon where Pennington meets his next victim.

Mr. Pennington plead guilty to criminal assault 1 and harassment  ( His ex filed suit for damages Washington County Case # D911027SC) after he hospitalized his fiancé in Oregon and stole items from the community.

As a result, John Pennington fled from Oregon to Vancouver Washington. While in Vancouver Washington, John Pennington meets his next victim. Sadly, they soon married.

While working in a coffee delivery business, John Pennington stole coffee grinding equipment from his previous employer and used this equipment to start-up a coffee shop in Kelso. Purpose was to make it look like he was an entrepreneur ( but he is really a sociopath) as to grab an uncontested Republican seat in Cowlitz County.

It worked, the uneducated college dropout John Pennington managed to get elected to an uncontested WA House of Representatives seat. Unfortunately for residents in New Orleans and Oso Washington, he met a powerful Washington State Republican leader, Jennifer Dunn.

In 1992, a 5-year-old girl was kidnapped, raped, and then tossed along a Cowlitz County road like a piece of trash.  We sent our private investigators to Cowlitz County to talk with the lead Detective who confirmed the following facts:

John Pennington became one of two prime suspects for the following reasons:

(1) Pennington operated a coffee delivery route within six blocks of where the child was dumped after being raped; (2) he drove the same car; (3) he was in the area at the time of the child rape and could not explain his whereabouts; (4)  his picture from 1992 is a complete match to the child and witness sketch drawing of the pedophile; (5) he relentlessly convinced his ex-wife to call the police attempting to divert attention away from himself and onto another man; and ( 6) He has continuous and countless charges of child and spousal abuse, a man who cannot keep his hands to himself.

Below is the press release as it relates to John E. Pennington’s rape of a 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington

 

Unfortunately for the 5 year child, John Pennington meets a Kelso Washington city attorney named Michael Kenyon.

According to John Pennington’s divorce files he is also an abuser of prescription pills, and was detained at the US Mexico  for having narcotics ( non-prescription pain pills) on his person while coming back into the US. Pennington has never denied this allegation.

In 1995, John Pennington was also a member of the Washington State Militia, a group dedicated to over throwing the United States government. ” John sat around for years obsessed about getting even with the Longview Washington news reporter for reporting that John was a member of the State militia.”

From 1992 to 2005, John Pennington’s violence grew with his ex-wife. # 2, Valerie. From pushing her down a flight of stairs as well as constant physical harassment,  John Pennington never learned to keep his hands to himself.

But the case that raised our eyebrows is Mr. Pennington’s abuse on his ex-wife # 2 ( who is really ex-wife # 3) Anne Laughlin. Ms. Laughlin was a City of Duvall city council member at the time of Pennington’s assault of Anne. Anne was three weeks away from giving birth to her daughter when Pennington violently assaulted, kicked and punched Anne in the stomach and uterus. A real salt of the earth kind of man.

pennington-redmond_Page_1

Since Ms. Laughlin was a Duvall city council member at the time, the City of Duvall sought a Special Prosecutor. The prosecutor assigned to prosecute wife beater John Pennington came from the law firm where Pennington’s buddy Michael Kenyon was employed.

In 2009 when Pennington assaulted Laughlin, this was his third domestic violence charge. This should have amounted to jail time for Pennington.

A close review of John Pennington’s Snohomish County travel records warrant a closer look into missing children in Washington, Alaska, Maryland.  Public monies allowed us to review his credit card receipts, telephone records, etc. information that another blogger turned over to authorities.

Any grown man that takes a shower with a six year old little girl is a pedophile.

Pages from Socipath John Pennington-2

In 2011, Kenyon Disend’s junior attorney, Ann Marie Soto, received an email from John Pennington via Snohomish County computers demanding that Kenyon Disend redact police reports involving John Pennington criminal harassment and assault that we requested under RCW 42.56.   There’s only one problem, at the time Pennington was communicating with Kenyon Disend’s attorney, he was not a City of Duvall employee thus no attorney client relationship existed.

We sought the advice of an expert in records issues who is of the opinion that Kenyon Disend’s redaction of police reports was not permissible under the Public Records Act.

Then a source close to ex # 2 ( or # 3 depending on what public records you believe as it relates to Pennington’s aliases) provided us with thousands of records relating to John Pennington, and those records included Pennington’s email communication with Duvall’s Mayor about how to get Pennington’s soon to be ex-wife Anne Laughlin off the City Council.

In 2009, Pennington then used Aaron Reardon’s connection to the Seattle Times reporter ( who then became Reardon’s aide) to post a story about Anne Laughlin, pretty much the same way he did to Gold Bar Reporters in February 2012. Former Seattle Times reporter Emily Heffner was contacted for comment but all she would say is ” you need to move because they are coming after you.” She never did state who “they” were, but as we stated to Ms. Heffner before, “We have only one live to give and it shall be for the betterment of our society as a whole.”

As of today, Attorney Michael Kenyon and Ann Marie Soto have bilked the taxpayers of Gold Bar over $1,350,000.00 hidng former Mayor Crystal Hill’s public records ( emails) documenting that she was practicing law without a license, and had lied on her F 1 form stating that she had never pled guilty to fraud when in fact she had plead guilty twice, one in 2000 in North Carolina and a second time in Snohomish County Washington; and John Pennington making racist comments about President Obama and running illegal ACCESS background checks in violation of RCW 10.97.

Both Penningtons are being sued for gross 1983 and RICO charges with depositions expected to start early next year.

The bigger question that Michael Kenyon refused to answer was what he gained for quashing John Pennington’s criminal charges for beating up his pregnant wife Anne, hiding John Pennington’s racist comments and his illegal background checks.

According to former Mayor Joe Beavers, John Pennington and Aaron Reardon “fixed” cases in Snohomish County Superior Court.

As a result of our six-year investigation, we are confident to report that attorney Michael Kenyon assisted John Pennington is committing felonies. Attorney Michael Kenyon and John Pennington will be sharing a prison cell together and we intend to make that happen even it takes me another 30 years, and I will continue to request access to public records and file suits against any agency that renders assistance to a pedophile and wife beater.

Our request for access to public records regarding this issue has already started.  The public, especially Pierce College students, have a legal right to know why Pierce College Board of Trustees would hire a child rapist and wife beater.

 



 


What John Pennington was trying to hide for so many years, his prior conviction for criminal harassment ( assault of an ex-fiancé in Oregon) as noted in the following public records as prior conviction”

In 2000, John Pennington was George Bush Jr’s campaign manager here in Washington State.  Soon after George Bush Jr. was elected ( or stole the election with his brother’s assistance depending what you believe), George Jr. appointed John E Pennington and Michael Browne to positions inside FEMA. Sadly for America, not one FEMA Director was qualified for such positions.

As a result of Michael Browne and John Pennington’s inability to read, write and think effectively caused thousands of minority deaths in Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane Katrina was an eye opener for those of us who actually earned accredited degrees and whose parents taught us to think critically. George W Bush Jr.’s decision to appoint friends instead of educated and skilled people resulted in massive human loss of life In New Orleans.

Had this story ended in New Orleans, we wouldn’t be exposing John E.Pennington today. But it didn’t, why is simple, because Washington State Senator Jennifer Dunn decided to use her political clout to appoint an uneducated bum to FEMA Region 10 ( Pacific Northwest).

What is even crazier is that George W Bush made an executive appointment without ever running a single background check on John Pennington prior to appointing him.

All that changed when America started calling for Michael Brownie’s head for causing  so many deaths in New Orleans. Perhaps Michael Browne might have survived press scrutiny had he not put in his email that was heading to Nordstroms to purchase new clothes for the cameras, while at the same time thousands of African Americans were floating down the street or in lock down inside an unsafe convention center.

African Americans were drowning in the streets of New Orleans, because FEMA Directors lacked basic college skills to handle such a disaster. In the case of Michael Browne, an unaccredited undergraduate degree as well as unaccredited law school diploma. In the case of John Pennington, an online diploma mill degree from an online school the U.S. Dept of Education said sold online diplomas at a flat rate, California Coastal College.


Hurricane Katrina, good bye Brownie, Hello Penny

After Michael Browne and Bernard Kerik made a laughing stock out of the George W and America, George Jr was quoted as saying ‘ Penny will make a great director of FEMA.”This was November 2005. But this time, the feds actually ran an extensive background on John Pennington, and discovered what we learned through years of sifting through public records. John Pennington is a dangerous sociopath with real anger management issues; anger he often takes out on women and children.

I never really thought much of George W Bush Jr. other than he’s a spolied little rich kid who never worked for a living. For the same reason, I couldn’t vote for Al Gore in 2000. Thus, I became one of Ralph Nader’s Raiders in 2000.

Fact is that I probably ran into John Pennington at the Republican National Convention that year in Philadelphia. I, and 1,000,000. Americans blocked the entrance to the Republican National Convention Center preventing many of George Jr’s delegates from accessing the convention center that year.

I was a proud member of Massachusettes ACT UP from UMASS, and had traveled all over the U.S. protesting what I believed to be unequal treatment of economically disadvantaged Americans in favor of corporations. I’m a strong believer that America should place “ people over profits.”

Strangely, I always had respect for George Bush Sr. Why is simple: George Sr is a well educated savey free thinker who listens to his opponents. Unlike his son, George Jr. , who was given a little too much growing up without working for it.  Hard work goes along way in molding one’s self esteem.


In 2005, Michael Browne was blamed for the deaths of thousands, because he was appointed to a position that he wasn’t qualified for.  So when George Jr. had to make a new appointment to FEMA Director, he looked to a devil wrapping himself with pages of the Bible, while at the same time molesting children and violently assaulting a pregnant woman in her third trimester, John E. Pennington.

For those reporting the news in Washington D.C just after George Bush Jr’s FEMA Directors caused so much misery to so many residents and their survivors in New Orleans, Bush Jr. was quoted as saying ” Penny would make a great Director.”

Because the feds didn’t want George Jr. to go through yet another scathing news story like he did when he chose Kerik to head Homeland Security (who ended up being prime suspect in a murder case and had direct ties to organized crime) and Michael Browne and his fake degrees with extensive skills in horse breeding debacles, any appointment would go through extensive background checks prior to Congressional Hearings.

As a result of the feds extensive background check on John Pennington, he was forced to resign from FEMA or be exposed in a very public way. John Pennington lied about his termination from FEMA stating that he and Tamara Doherty were caught misusing the FEMA credit cards.

This was simply a smoke screen to cover up what we just learned from a federal source over Labor Day Weekend.

John Pennington was terminated from FEMA because the feds learned what we reported on over the last seven years; pedophilia deviant uneducated child abuser who has sick fetish for kids, John Pennington. A sociopath who reminds me of Ted Bundy.

Unfortunately for Oso Washington residents,  George W Bush Jr.’s  administration thought it was ok to set him loose on Snohomish County residents just so George Jr didn’t have to suffer public press embarassment again.


On March 24, 2014, John Pennington caused 43 residents in Oso Washington to suffocate to death in Washington State’s most preventable loss of life natural disaster. Instead of mitigating loss to human life, John Pennington worked on his fraudulent online diploma, operated his personal business on the County’s dime and while using county resources and staff, violently assaulted children and women, and criminally harassed me right from Snohomish County Offices operating an online blog ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.  “  An online blog owned by Aaron Reardon but operated by Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg who plead guilty to bank fraud in 2005), John Pennington,  and Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers.

I believe John Pennington should be charged with negligent homicide for the 43 people he killed in the Oso mudslides.


Since John E. Pennington killed 43 Oso residents in the mudslides, we have searched his travel records and beleive he is responsible for missing children in four different states, and have ample evidence to state John Pennington is the man responsbile for the rape of that five year old child from Colwitz County Washington.

Sadly, John Pennington remains on the loose up here in Snohomis County. So long as John Pennington remains on the loose, I will continue to investigate and report on his criminal sexual deviant conduct.

Protecting Our children from a sociopath like John Pennington is worth every sacrifice we’ve made as a result  of shinning much needed sunshine on cockroaches who harm molest and abuse our kids.

Our Children’s mental well being has no price tag.  I agree with Hillary Clinton “ it takes a village to raise children.”


John Pennington’s trial in the Oso mudslide debacle will be live streamed by the Gold Bar Reporters starting during the fall of 2016.

As for Pierce College hiring a pedophile and wife beater, one can only say that each and everyone of the persons involved in hiring a known pedophile will now be investigated as a result.  Stay tuned, because the way I see it, the only ones who protect pedophiles and wife beaters are ones’ themselves.

 

Perhaps Pierce College needed to hire someone to teach “ How to get away with molesting and raping our kids, fraud, murder, setting up fake online newspapers to criminally harass citizens, not pay Department of Revenue taxes, failing to pay property taxes, raping college students, and beating one’s spouse” also known as Emergency Management 101 at Pierce College it appears.

 

Or perhaps it was John Pennington from an online fraudulent program Senator Tom Harkin called fraudulent on PBS’s “ Education, Inc.”  or California Coastal School that the IRS said sold online diplomas at a flat rate http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/local-fema-chief-had-little-disaster-experience/

BEWARE students especially female students as John E. Pennington was kicked out real colleges for raping a student.


In September 2015, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe confirmed that John Pennington is the man responsible for the rape of a five year old girl in Cowlitz County., Washington.  An insider who we have labeled as ” fed up” told the Gold Bar Reporter that Mark Roe was convinced by Snohomish County Prosecutors Sean Reay and Sara DI Vittorio ( being sued for racketeering) to hide Pennington’s criminal history to avoid liability.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keating, Bucklin, and McCormack, and Kenyon Disend, providing more evidence of racketeering, public records reveal

Gold Bar public records reveal criminal conspiracy 

Ragonesi                                    Soto

 Shannon Ragonesi                                                         Ann Marie Soto


 

In late November 2017, a Snohomish County insider called and said ” Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi met with one of your witnesses in your federal suit.  In exchange for turning on you,  the witness wanted her criminal conviction and outstanding warrant for animal abuse to be dismissed…”

This bribery scheme in exchange for trying to get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with a crime. However, the witness had nothing of value to give them, but attorney Shannon Ragonesi and Ann Marie Soto did offer to help the witness try to get obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter as they did with John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington ( read below).

What my readers should know is that the witness described above tried to extort the Gold Bar Reporter into giving her money and a car during the summer of 2017,  and lied time and time again about having cancer ( to obtain donations), as such, the Gold Bar Reporter cut all ties with her. A bigger problem for the co-conspirators is the witness has outstanding warrant for her arrest and is a convicted criminal, while the Gold Bar Reporter has no criminal history whatsoever.

Attorney Shannon Ragonesi has been sanctioned by judges all over the US for lying on court documents and filing frivolous motions. https://abovethelaw.com/2013/04/city-gets-benchslap-with-a-rolled-up-newspaper-over-dead-dog/

 

Ms. Ragonesi’s main contractor is the Association of Washington Cities ( a for profit company violating Sherman Anti-Trust laws), and she brags that she can fix any case because of her personal involvement with the WSBA and Judges like Jeffrey Ramsdalle, Judge Beth Andrus and Richard Okrent.

More on Association of Washington Cities crimes against taxpayers soon.  But a good read on AWC’s felonious crimes against taxpayers was outlined in link below:

https://goldbarreporter.org/tag/snohomish-county-attorney-jason-schwarz/

Public monies, resources, and attorneys, are used, such meetings and records as a result of that meeting, become public records

While in law school, I often ran into kids whose mommy and daddy spent hundreds of thousands of  dollars supporting them through law school.  Kids who had absolutely nothing of value to add to classes, and who would drop a class when the professor demanded Socratic in person, in class debate.

I remember thinking, ” oh boy, this kid next to me has no idea how to effectively communicate and has no common sense. As a nation, we’re in trouble.”


Kenyon Disend, crimes against Gold Bar taxpayers 

In 1992, Michael Kenyon, a Kelso Washington city attorney, met John E. Pennington, who according to a source, was introduced to him by Senator Jennifer Dunn. John E. Pennington, a transporting of narcotics, from Kelso to Bellingham ( where he met coffee Barista Lori Batiot, aka Hoffer/Harris), using his coffee supply company.  Transportation of narcotics usually comes with a price, aka criminal charges, so John E Pennington saw an uncontested Washington State House of Representative Seat, and decided to run.

At the time he ran for office, John E. Pennington was the only suspect in the rape and kidnapping and attempted murder of a five year girl in Cowlitz County.  In 2013, Cowlitz County lead detective Maurice Saxon said ” John Pennington is the man who raped that girl, and I have been following him since.”

From my past articles, noting that I have never been sued, my readers can piece together why Michael Kenyon and his associate Ann Marie Soto are so eager to protect John E. Pennington. So much so, that last week after requesting access to City of Duvall public records over five years ago, the City of Duvall finally released emails documenting that John E Pennington, a citizen of Duvall, was allowed to participate in whether or not a police report ( involving John Pennington) was in fact public under Washington State’s Public Records Act.

Subject: Pennington PRR: Simple Missed redaction

 Ms. Soto and Commander Hert.

 On the incident report stamped Jun 18 @2:02 (SGT Sanders) there is a single missed redaction.  Paragraph one of the narrative beginning with “On June 12 [redacted]…” has my name redacted throughout, HOWEVER there is a missed redaction where my name appears in full in the last paragraph. 

 My name is redacted under RCW 42.56.240 / 10.97.080 everywhere else, so this is a simple miss that needs to be corrected prior to any release to ensure consistency.

 Thank you.

Good afternoon, Ms. Soto.

 I am following up to see if you have received my time sensitive request below, regarding the single missed redaction I brought to your attention this morning, prior to the releasing of any documents to Ms. Block. 

 Of importance is that this particular document actually should fall under the domain of exemption of non-conviction criminal information and should not be released at all.  It is clearly part of a larger single file (City of Duvall CR007663D and CR007664D, dismissed with prejudice May 28, 2009) that is within that exemption and easily manages to identify me as part of that particular case that meets the exemption. 

 Irrespective, however, is that the document still contains my fully identifiable first and last name, where other sections of that document redact it, clearly violating privacy concerns under the RCW 42.56.240 and RCW 10.97.080 as identified elsewhere in the documents.

 Thank you!

 John E. Pennington


Mr. Pennington,

 

The City made the redaction you mentioned below prior to release to Ms. Block.  The redactions were made in compliance with the Public Records Act, the Criminal Records Privacy Act and Bainbridge Island Police Guild v. City of Puyallup and the City considers this matter now closed.  Thank you.

John Pennington’s criminal assault of a 3rd trimester pregnant Duvall City Council woman was NOT DISMISSED with prejudice because the Gold Bar Reporter obtained a copy of the May 29, 2009 audio from the hearing. The hearing confirmed my previous story; https://goldbarreporter.org/tag/sandra-meadowcraft/

Obvious questions like who tipped of non-City of Duvall employee John Pennington that the Gold Bar Reporter requested criminal reports involving him? Why would a City attorney violate the Public Records Act ( a felony in Washington State to conceal records) when in fact Our Supreme Court already held that police reports are not ” redactable” ?

Besides the fact that John E Pennington, a man diagnosed as a sociopath by King County Dr. Hedricks, John Pennington was being charged with violently assaulting a 3rd trimester pregnant Duvall Washington City Council-woman, is giving City of Gold Bar/Kenyon Disend attorney Ann Marie Soto and Duvall Police Chief Cary Hert demands to “redact” his name from police reports. Of even more interest to me is that the fact that the email’s metadata documents that John Pennington and Ann Marie have a ‘private chat room” with 20 other members, operating from the law firm of Kenyon Disend.

Soto

Ann Marie Soto is a contract attorney for the City of Gold Bar, employed by Kenyon Disend.  Keep in mind the above email string is related to a police report filed against John Pennington for domestic abuse in in Duvall, Washington.

In 2016, after having ample evidence that attorney Michael Kenyon is guilty of racketeering, and countless land scams inside North Bend and Cle Elm Washington, the Gold Bar Reporter published a story titled ” Michael Kenyon’s Dirty Bag of Secrets, Part II.”

Click – https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/04/04/attorney-michael-kenyons-dirty-bag-of-secrets-part-ii/

After attorney Ann Marie Soto was caught via public records conspiring to harm the Gold Bar Reporter, she was sued for racketeering, has been basically constructively demoted to a public records officer at the law firm of Kenyon Disend, and virtually unemployable( outside of Kenyon Disend) as a result.

Perhaps this is the main reason why Ms. Soto is trying to fight her way out of a paper bag by conspiring with convicted criminals on November 20, 2017.  Sadly, Ms. Soto placed her criminal racketeering crimes against the Gold Bar Reporter inside Gold Bar public records.


two is company, three’s a crowd

Trupin

As a feminist,  Rachel Turpin’s above picture is highly offensive, especially coming from a woman who works for Michael Kenyon ( Kenyon Disend), who has never promoted a female inside his office other than his first year law school graduate daughter.

From July 2016 to April 23, 2017, John Pennington also received criminal racketeering assistance from another Kenyon Disend’s attorney, Rachel Turpin. Public records from the City of Duvall document that attorney Rachel Turpin represented the City of Duvall in a law suit filed for access to public records.

When public money is being used, every single record received, obtained, reviewed, edited, created, sent is a public record.

In July 2016, John E Pennington ( terminated from FEMA and Snohomish County for conduct unbecoming of a public officer) and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2000, 2005, North Carolina and Snohomish County, respectively) walked into Pierce County District Court attempting to obtain a prior restraint against the Gold Bar Reporter’s investigation and exposé on publication of their countless  racketeering crimes.

Remember, Rachel Turpin works for Kenyon Disend providing legal services to the City of Duvall.  When attempting to obtain a prior restraint against the Gold Bar Reporter, John Pennington made an attempt to serve the Gold Bar Reporter while the reporter was out of the country.  Unable to serve, John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington contacted Kenyon Disend/Duvall city attorney Rachel Turpin to lend a hand to the criminal racketeering Enterprise attempts to perfect service.

In early October 2016, the Gold Bar Reporter received court issued subpoenas to depose two Brady Cops ( law enforcement employees) from Duvall, Washington, Shelley Rowe and Lori Batiot.  Rachel Turpin decided the best way to handle this was to get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with violating a restraining order. However, she needed to get the Gold Bar Reporter served.

On October 12, 2016, Rachel  Turpin sent the Gold Bar Reporter an email asking if she would be wiling to hold deposition of Duvall officers inside Duvall Washington’s police department.  The Gold Bar Reporter set depositions on October 16, 2016.

In July of 2016, attorney Rachel Turpin wrote the Gold Bar Reporter stating ” I will no longer communicate with you via email only by USPS.”   So what changed in October 2016 that Rachel Turpin all of the sudden communicated via email?

It’s called racketeering and conspiracy. 

On October 26, 2016, John E Pennington walked into Pierce County District Court to obtain a prior restraint on free speech against the Gold Bar Reporter.  The Judge assigned was Pro Tem Judge Chen Weller.  Ms. Weller is a high ranking member with the Washington State Bar Association ( WSBA).  Public email from Snohomish County Washington confirm beyond any shadow of a doubt that lead WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel attorney Linda Eide was assisting John Pennington, with conspiring to harm the Gold Bar’s WSBA license.  As a result, the WSBA, Linda Eide, John and Crystal Hill Pennington are being sued for racketeering… a new suit is on its way for 2018.

Judge Weller was asked by Linda Eide to “pull one for the team and give John E Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington a restraining order.”  On  October 26, 2016, Judge Chen Weller, at the bequest of WSBA lead attorney Linda Eide, obtained a forged court order ( see below) and issued a temporary restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter.  Why, is something that I didn’t know until the Washington State Patrol  released public records.

On October 10, 2016, John Pennington forged a court order and managed to get his friend to put his forgery inside the NCIC, LlNYX and ACCESS databases weeks prior to obtaining Judge Chen Weller’s signature.  Once Snohomish County and Kenyon Disend became aware of John and Crystal Hill Pennington’s forgery scheme, the Enterprise requested and received the assistance of Peirce County Judge Chen Weller to sign the order, thus trying to cover up the fact that Penningtons’ forged court order was already placed inside NCIC weeks prior to Judge Chen Weller signed it. Racketeering.

The Gold Bar Reporter sued the Judge and Pierce County settled the suit and vacated Penningtons’ forged court order for fraud ( see below).

This brings me back to why all of the sudden Duvall city attorney Rachel Turpin was so desperate to get me to hold depositions inside the City of Duvall police station. Ms. Turpin knew that the Penningtons’ had already managed to get a Brady Cop to enter his forged court order into the NCIC, LlYNX, and ACCESS data bases on October 10, 2016.  Ms. Turpin’s goal was to get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with violating the forged restraining order, an order that until recently, the Gold Bar Reporter had no idea was placed into NCIC, ACCESS weeks prior to having a judge sign it.

John and Crystal Hill Pennington’s forgery was nicely outlined in my past reports below. Both John and Crystal Hill Pennington are being sued for racketeering.

Pierce College, Tacoma, instructor, caught forging court record

penny

John E. Pennington, terminated from FEMA and Snohomish County for conduct unbecoming of a public officer, now caught forging documents with Pierce County District Court


 

John E. Pennington, an instructor with Pierce College,  caught forging a court record last week in Tacoma, Washington.

It all started when the Gold Bar Reporter did what we’re supposed to do as a journalist, contacted him for comment about an upcoming article involving his false academic credentials.  Credentials John Pennington placed into public records at Pierce College, fraudulently obtaining a teaching position, a crime in Washington State.

RCW 9A.60.070

False academic credentials—Unlawful issuance or use—Definitions—Penalties.

(1) A person is guilty of issuing a false academic credential if the person knowingly

According to Pierce College, Tacoma,  John E. Pennington did fraudulently use false Academic credentials to obtain a position at the College by falsely submitting that he has accredited college degrees.

pennington-pierce-county-2

pierce-college-penny-credentials

John E. Pennington did knowingly falsify his academic credentials to Pierce College to obtain a employment, and is guilty of this crime as well.  

 



 

 

In 2005, the Seattle Times published a story about John Pennington’s academic school of choice correctly stating the IRS held that California Coastal College ( John E. Pennington’s online school of choice) sold degrees at a flat rate.”

See http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/local-fema-chief-had-little-disaster-experience/

False fraudulent academic diplomas managed to slip by former Executive Aaron Reardon ( who the Gold Bar Reporter proudly got rid of as the criminal harasser he is as evidenced by the Snohomish County Herald’s Feb 13, 2013 article http://201-dhwebvarnish.newscyclecloud.com/article/20130214/NEWS01/702149999 ) inside Snohomish County’s Emergency Management too.

This  contributed to the deaths (Black’s law dictionary, negligent homicide equates to killing) of 43 people in the Oso mudslides disaster. Had Snohomish County had an educated person at the helm of Emergency Management, 43 people would more than likely be alive today.

King County’s Major Crimes Unit public records document that Aaron Reardon’s executive officers had so much time on their hands to post defamatory articles on a website the trio set up titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle” – a website to control the political message in the Sky Valley ( Monroe to Index).

John E. Pennington’s wife Crystal Hill Pennington was anonymously cyber-stalking anyone who dared question Aaron Reardon’s gang of thieves. Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers admitted under oath a deposition two weeks ago that he too was cyber-stalking people on the Sky Valley Chronicle.

Crystal Hill Pennington’s deposition is scheduled for December 6, 2016, and an update will follow.

Now this, Pierce College Trustees hired a man with fake credentials who killed 43 people, beats on women and abuses our kids?  What the hell  is going on inside Washington State that a man who has harmed so many people is allowed to fraud our future leaders?

Our kids deserve much more, as such, the Gold Bar Reporter filed a complaint against Pierce College, Tacoma, with the U.S. Department of Education as this is fraud.

In 2013, John E. Pennington, a resident of Duvall, Washington, applied for a position on the Duvall Washington Library Board. Pennington’s application was rejected, the basis according to the Board Chair  ” he had no respect for the First Amendment.”

So its no surprise that once we started investigating John E. Pennington false credentials by requesting access to public records at Pierce College ( RCW 42.56), John E. Pennington committed more fraud, but this time on Pierce College’s dime.

On October 24, 2016, a forged Snohomish County Process of Service paper was filed by Penningtons whiting it out ( forgery)  knowingly falsely filing an instrument with a public office.

On October 27, 2016, John E. Pennington appeared in front of Pierce County District Court ( where he nor his wife resides), sworn in captured on video camera, falsely certifying under oath that he served the Gold Bar Reporter with his petition for restraining order  ( prior restraint on free speech prohibited in the U.S.), attempting to SLAPP down the Gold Bar Reporter’s message.

A First Amendment lawyer stated ” Prior Restraints on free speech in America are considered a violation of my civil rights.”

According to the Snohomish County Sherriff’s Office, John E. Pennington forged the original document, and the unforged document delivered to John Pennington is this one:

casey-original

After John E.Pennington forged the document:

10-14

rowexhibitnewimprovedversion_page_1

SLAPP suits carry a $10, 0000.00per offense penalty.  An issue we suspect John E. Pennington could care less about as public records document that he cant pay his mortgage, so what’s a judgment for $50K?

Congrads to Pierce College, Tacoma, Washington, not only did the Board of Trustees hire a child/wife abuser, they also hired a man now guilty of perjury and forgery.

The Gold Bar Reporter filed a new complaint in King County seeking damages, and a Writ and Injunction ordering Pierce County off this case as not one person John Pennington fraudulently obtained a restraining order against lives in Pierce County.

The Gold Bar Reporter is seeking an additional $50,000.00 from the marital community of the Crystal Hill and John E. Pennington’s for severe emotional distress.

Late yesterday, we learned that Pierce County District  ” vacated” the restraining order and there is a criminal felony investigation under way against John E. Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington (convicted of bank fraud,2005, 2000) and the case will be transferred to King County ( where according to the documents below, John E. Pennington has had countless criminal harassment complaints against him in King County).

John E. Pennington is the same political appointee who the Seattle Times quoted as saying Washington State’s largest slide area was “Considered very safe.”

As the Seattle Times reporter Mike Cater ( also the reporter who reported on Pennington fake academic credentials) wrote “It was considered very safe,” Pennington said. “This was a completely unforeseen slide. This came out of nowhere.”

John Pennington’s statements about the Oso mudslides were in complete contrast Daniel Miller, a geomorph­ologist, who wrote about Oso landslide conditions in his 1997 report for the Washington Department of Ecology and the Tulalip Tribes. Miller used reports and memos from the 1950s, 1960s, 1980s and 1990s, to support his 1997 report that the Oso area was unstable and should be evacuated.

Miller also stated that he was stunned and troubled to return to the area in 2006, to see new homes being built instead of  seeing homes being vacated.

Miller said “Frankly, I was shocked that the county permitted any building across from the river. . . It’s not unknown that this hazard exists.”

Miller contracted with the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Forest Service in 1997.

Immediately following the Oso mudslide disaster, the Gold Bar Reporter contacted Miller asking him ” if John E. Pennington’s email showed that he ( Pennington) approved building on the Oso mudslide area, do you think he should be charged with negligent homicide?   He said ” if you have that kind of email, then Jay Inslee should order an outside agency to investigate John Pennington’s background.”  We said ” we already did… and Snohomish County was aware that John Pennington had falsified his academic  credentials and had countless abuse charges filed against him for criminal harassment and beating women. ” Miller’s voice crackled, and he sounded scared or tearful and hung up.

Obviously, Pierce College ( Tacoma) is a public agency subject to RCW 42.56, the Public Records Act.  Too bad, John Pennington’s conduct is subject to public scrutiny.

Perhaps Pennington’s next job will actually require working, preferably in private industry, so several investigative reporters and I can sleep at night.  Our children are  worthy of our efforts to protect their future to be educated by people who have real college degrees.

Once the Department of Education issues its findings in this matter, it will be posted.  Fraud like this harms all of us, and dummies down the U.S. educational system and will not go unchecked by the Gold Bar Reporter.


 

For those of my readers who haven’t read my last articles on John Pennington’s criminal history, please see below.  The Gold Bar Reporter has NEVER been sued but welcome a suit. 

Pedophile 

John Pennington, terminated for Snohomish County

 


2000px-FEMA_logo_svg

From FEMA to Snohomish County Washington and now to Pierce College ( Tacoma Washington diploma mill), dark  secrets unearthed. Gold Bar Reporters were the first to report on John E. Pennington’s criminal conduct, a small portion of our report is outlined below


MEET JOHN ‘ THEODORE TED BUNDY” PENNINGTON

John Pennington was a troubled youth who, according to one source “had a major drug problem by the age of 16.”  So it’s no surprise that in the late 1980’s, after being kicked out of Vanderbilt College in Tennessee after raping a female college student, John Pennington moved to a small suburban city just outside of San Diego California.

While in the San Diego area,  John Pennington meets his new victim, who believe he legally married, so are calling her ex-wife # 1, Carla M.

Two years later, John Pennington fled from Southern California, again heading home to Nashville, only after two small boys made allegations of sexual abuse against him while on a church camping trip.

While in Tennessee, John Pennington made an unsuccessful run for an open State Rep. seat.  After a landslide loss for Pennington, he again headed west. This time to Oregon where Pennington meets his next victim.

Mr. Pennington plead guilty to criminal assault 1 and harassment  ( His ex filed suit for damages Washington County Case # D911027SC) after he hospitalized his fiancé in Oregon and stole items from the community.

As a result, John Pennington fled from Oregon to Vancouver Washington. While in Vancouver Washington, John Pennington meets his next victim. Sadly, they soon married.

While working in a coffee delivery business, John Pennington stole coffee grinding equipment from his previous employer and used this equipment to start-up a coffee shop in Kelso. Purpose was to make it look like he was an entrepreneur ( but he is really a sociopath) as to grab an uncontested Republican seat in Cowlitz County.

It worked, the uneducated college dropout John Pennington managed to get elected to an uncontested WA House of Representatives seat. Unfortunately for residents in New Orleans and Oso Washington, he met a powerful Washington State Republican leader, Jennifer Dunn.

In 1992, a 5-year-old girl was kidnapped, raped, and then tossed along a Cowlitz County road like a piece of trash.  We sent our private investigators to Cowlitz County to talk with the lead Detective who confirmed the following facts:

John Pennington became one of two prime suspects for the following reasons:

(1) Pennington operated a coffee delivery route within six blocks of where the child was dumped after being raped; (2) he drove the same car; (3) he was in the area at the time of the child rape and could not explain his whereabouts; (4)  his picture from 1992 is a complete match to the child and witness sketch drawing of the pedophile; (5) he relentlessly convinced his ex-wife to call the police attempting to divert attention away from himself and onto another man; and ( 6) He has continuous and countless charges of child and spousal abuse, a man who cannot keep his hands to himself.

Below is the press release as it relates to John E. Pennington’s rape of a 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington

 

Unfortunately for the 5 year child, John Pennington meets a Kelso Washington city attorney named Michael Kenyon.

According to John Pennington’s divorce files he is also an abuser of prescription pills, and was detained at the US Mexico  for having narcotics ( non-prescription pain pills) on his person while coming back into the US. Pennington has never denied this allegation.

In 1995, John Pennington was also a member of the Washington State Militia, a group dedicated to over throwing the United States government. ” John sat around for years obsessed about getting even with the Longview Washington news reporter for reporting that John was a member of the State militia.”

From 1992 to 2005, John Pennington’s violence grew with his ex-wife. # 2, Valerie. From pushing her down a flight of stairs as well as constant physical harassment,  John Pennington never learned to keep his hands to himself.

But the case that raised our eyebrows is Mr. Pennington’s abuse on his ex-wife # 2 ( who is really ex-wife # 3) Anne Laughlin. Ms. Laughlin was a City of Duvall city council member at the time of Pennington’s assault of Anne. Anne was three weeks away from giving birth to her daughter when Pennington violently assaulted, kicked and punched Anne in the stomach and uterus. A real salt of the earth kind of man.

redmond-pd1_Page_1

pennington-redmond_Page_1

Since Ms. Laughlin was a Duvall city council member at the time, the City of Duvall sought a Special Prosecutor. The prosecutor assigned to prosecute wife beater John Pennington came from the law firm where Pennington’s buddy Michael Kenyon was employed.

In 2009 when Pennington assaulted Laughlin, this was his third domestic violence charge. This should have amounted to jail time for Pennington.

A close review of John Pennington’s Snohomish County travel records warrant a closer look into missing children in Washington, Alaska, Maryland.  Public monies allowed us to review his credit card receipts, telephone records, etc. information that another blogger turned over to authorities.

Any grown man that takes a shower with a six year old little girl is a pedophile.

Pages from Socipath John Pennington-2

In 2011, Kenyon Disend’s junior attorney, Ann Marie Soto, received an email from John Pennington via Snohomish County computers demanding that Kenyon Disend redact police reports involving John Pennington criminal harassment and assault that we requested under RCW 42.56.   There’s only one problem, at the time Pennington was communicating with Kenyon Disend’s attorney, he was not a City of Duvall employee thus no attorney client relationship existed.

We sought the advice of an expert in records issues who is of the opinion that Kenyon Disend’s redaction of police reports was not permissible under the Public Records Act.

Then a source close to ex # 2 ( or # 3 depending on what public records you believe as it relates to Pennington’s aliases) provided us with thousands of records relating to John Pennington, and those records included Pennington’s email communication with Duvall’s Mayor about how to get Pennington’s soon to be ex-wife Anne Laughlin off the City Council.

In 2009, Pennington then used Aaron Reardon’s connection to the Seattle Times reporter ( who then became Reardon’s aide) to post a story about Anne Laughlin, pretty much the same way he did to Gold Bar Reporters in February 2012. Former Seattle Times reporter Emily Heffner was contacted for comment but all she would say is ” you need to move because they are coming after you.” She never did state who “they” were, but as we stated to Ms. Heffner before, “We have only one live to give and it shall be for the betterment of our society as a whole.”

As of today, Attorney Michael Kenyon and Ann Marie Soto have bilked the taxpayers of Gold Bar over $1,350,000.00 hidng former Mayor Crystal Hill’s public records ( emails) documenting that she was practicing law without a license, and had lied on her F 1 form stating that she had never pled guilty to fraud when in fact she had plead guilty twice, one in 2000 in North Carolina and a second time in Snohomish County Washington; and John Pennington making racist comments about President Obama and running illegal ACCESS background checks in violation of RCW 10.97.

Both Penningtons are being sued for gross 1983 and RICO charges with depositions expected to start early next year.

The bigger question that Michael Kenyon refused to answer was what he gained for quashing John Pennington’s criminal charges for beating up his pregnant wife Anne, hiding John Pennington’s racist comments and his illegal background checks.

According to former Mayor Joe Beavers, John Pennington and Aaron Reardon “fixed” cases in Snohomish County Superior Court.

As a result of our six-year investigation, we are confident to report that attorney Michael Kenyon assisted John Pennington is committing felonies. Attorney Michael Kenyon and John Pennington will be sharing a prison cell together and we intend to make that happen even it takes me another 30 years, and I will continue to request access to public records and file suits against any agency that renders assistance to a pedophile and wife beater.

Our request for access to public records regarding this issue has already started.  The public, especially Pierce College students, have a legal right to know why Pierce College Board of Trustees would hire a child rapist and wife beater.

 



 


What John Pennington was trying to hide for so many years, his prior conviction for criminal harassment ( assault of an ex-fiancé in Oregon) as noted in the following public records as prior conviction”

In 2000, John Pennington was George Bush Jr’s campaign manager here in Washington State.  Soon after George Bush Jr. was elected ( or stole the election with his brother’s assistance depending what you believe), George Jr. appointed John E Pennington and Michael Browne to positions inside FEMA. Sadly for America, not one FEMA Director was qualified for such positions.

As a result of Michael Browne and John Pennington’s inability to read, write and think effectively caused thousands of minority deaths in Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane Katrina was an eye opener for those of us who actually earned accredited degrees and whose parents taught us to think critically. George W Bush Jr.’s decision to appoint friends instead of educated and skilled people resulted in massive human loss of life In New Orleans.

Had this story ended in New Orleans, we wouldn’t be exposing John E.Pennington today. But it didn’t, why is simple, because Washington State Senator Jennifer Dunn decided to use her political clout to appoint an uneducated bum to FEMA Region 10 ( Pacific Northwest).

What is even crazier is that George W Bush made an executive appointment without ever running a single background check on John Pennington prior to appointing him.

All that changed when America started calling for Michael Brownie’s head for causing  so many deaths in New Orleans. Perhaps Michael Browne might have survived press scrutiny had he not put in his email that was heading to Nordstroms to purchase new clothes for the cameras, while at the same time thousands of African Americans were floating down the street or in lock down inside an unsafe convention center.

African Americans were drowning in the streets of New Orleans, because FEMA Directors lacked basic college skills to handle such a disaster. In the case of Michael Browne, an unaccredited undergraduate degree as well as unaccredited law school diploma. In the case of John Pennington, an online diploma mill degree from an online school the U.S. Dept of Education said sold online diplomas at a flat rate, California Coastal College.


Hurricane Katrina, good bye Brownie, Hello Penny

After Michael Browne and Bernard Kerik made a laughing stock out of the George W and America, George Jr was quoted as saying ‘ Penny will make a great director of FEMA.”This was November 2005. But this time, the feds actually ran an extensive background on John Pennington, and discovered what we learned through years of sifting through public records. John Pennington is a dangerous sociopath with real anger management issues; anger he often takes out on women and children.

I never really thought much of George W Bush Jr. other than he’s a spolied little rich kid who never worked for a living. For the same reason, I couldn’t vote for Al Gore in 2000. Thus, I became one of Ralph Nader’s Raiders in 2000.

Fact is that I probably ran into John Pennington at the Republican National Convention that year in Philadelphia. I, and 1,000,000. Americans blocked the entrance to the Republican National Convention Center preventing many of George Jr’s delegates from accessing the convention center that year.

I was a proud member of Massachusettes ACT UP from UMASS, and had traveled all over the U.S. protesting what I believed to be unequal treatment of economically disadvantaged Americans in favor of corporations. I’m a strong believer that America should place “ people over profits.”

Strangely, I always had respect for George Bush Sr. Why is simple: George Sr is a well educated savey free thinker who listens to his opponents. Unlike his son, George Jr. , who was given a little too much growing up without working for it.  Hard work goes along way in molding one’s self esteem.


In 2005, Michael Browne was blamed for the deaths of thousands, because he was appointed to a position that he wasn’t qualified for.  So when George Jr. had to make a new appointment to FEMA Director, he looked to a devil wrapping himself with pages of the Bible, while at the same time molesting children and violently assaulting a pregnant woman in her third trimester, John E. Pennington.

For those reporting the news in Washington D.C just after George Bush Jr’s FEMA Directors caused so much misery to so many residents and their survivors in New Orleans, Bush Jr. was quoted as saying ” Penny would make a great Director.”

Because the feds didn’t want George Jr. to go through yet another scathing news story like he did when he chose Kerik to head Homeland Security (who ended up being prime suspect in a murder case and had direct ties to organized crime) and Michael Browne and his fake degrees with extensive skills in horse breeding debacles, any appointment would go through extensive background checks prior to Congressional Hearings.

As a result of the feds extensive background check on John Pennington, he was forced to resign from FEMA or be exposed in a very public way. John Pennington lied about his termination from FEMA stating that he and Tamara Doherty were caught misusing the FEMA credit cards.

This was simply a smoke screen to cover up what we just learned from a federal source over Labor Day Weekend.

John Pennington was terminated from FEMA because the feds learned what we reported on over the last seven years; pedophilia deviant uneducated child abuser who has sick fetish for kids, John Pennington. A sociopath who reminds me of Ted Bundy.

Unfortunately for Oso Washington residents,  George W Bush Jr.’s  administration thought it was ok to set him loose on Snohomish County residents just so George Jr didn’t have to suffer public press embarassment again.


On March 24, 2014, John Pennington caused 43 residents in Oso Washington to suffocate to death in Washington State’s most preventable loss of life natural disaster. Instead of mitigating loss to human life, John Pennington worked on his fraudulent online diploma, operated his personal business on the County’s dime and while using county resources and staff, violently assaulted children and women, and criminally harassed me right from Snohomish County Offices operating an online blog ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.  “  An online blog owned by Aaron Reardon but operated by Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg who plead guilty to bank fraud in 2005), John Pennington,  and Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers.

I believe John Pennington should be charged with negligent homicide for the 43 people he killed in the Oso mudslides.


Since John E. Pennington killed 43 Oso residents in the mudslides, we have searched his travel records and beleive he is responsible for missing children in four different states, and have ample evidence to state John Pennington is the man responsbile for the rape of that five year old child from Colwitz County Washington.

Sadly, John Pennington remains on the loose up here in Snohomis County. So long as John Pennington remains on the loose, I will continue to investigate and report on his criminal sexual deviant conduct.

Protecting Our children from a sociopath like John Pennington is worth every sacrifice we’ve made as a result  of shinning much needed sunshine on cockroaches who harm molest and abuse our kids.

Our Children’s mental well being has no price tag.  I agree with Hillary Clinton “ it takes a village to raise children.”


John Pennington’s trial in the Oso mudslide debacle will be live streamed by the Gold Bar Reporters starting during the fall of 2016.

As for Pierce College hiring a pedophile and wife beater, one can only say that each and everyone of the persons involved in hiring a known pedophile will now be investigated as a result.  Stay tuned, because the way I see it, the only ones who protect pedophiles and wife beaters are ones’ themselves.

 

Perhaps Pierce College needed to hire someone to teach “ How to get away with molesting and raping our kids, fraud, murder, setting up fake online newspapers to criminally harass citizens, not pay Department of Revenue taxes, failing to pay property taxes, raping college students, and beating one’s spouse” also known as Emergency Management 101 at Pierce College it appears.

 

Or perhaps it was John Pennington from an online fraudulent program Senator Tom Harkin called fraudulent on PBS’s “ Education, Inc.”  or California Coastal School that the IRS said sold online diplomas at a flat rate http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/local-fema-chief-had-little-disaster-experience/

BEWARE students especially female students as John E. Pennington was kicked out real colleges for raping a student.


In September 2015, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe confirmed that John Pennington is the man responsible for the rape of a five year old girl in Cowlitz County., Washington.  An insider who we have labeled as ” fed up” told the Gold Bar Reporter that Mark Roe was convinced by Snohomish County Prosecutors Sean Reay and Sara DI Vittorio ( being sued for racketeering) to hide Pennington’s criminal history to avoid liability.

 

 

 

 

 

Attempted rape and sexual assault covered up by Snohomish County Washington, misuse of public monies

Over the last ten years, the Gold Bar Reporter has been sounding the alarms about an unqualified political appointee, Snohomish County’s Dept. of Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington.  Today, we have credible sources confirming beyond any shadow of a doubt that John E. Pennington has one more skill to add to his resume, attempted rape of Snohomish County’s public records officer.

 

Although John Pennington was terminated after public records reveal that he is the man responsible for the attempted rape of Snohomish County’s Dept of Emergency Management’s public records officer  ( Snohomish County misused taxpayer monies in exchange for her silence about John E. Pennington’s attempted rape which occurred inside Dept of Emergency Management).

 

Although John E. Pennington was fired from Snohomish County in January 2016, he is the man responsible for the rape of a  5 year old girl from Cowlitz County ( according to Cowlitz County lead detective Maurice Saxon who was forced into early retirement for talking with the Gold Bar Reporter about John Pennington’s rape of a 5 year old girl), guilty of violently assaulting a 3rd trimester pregnant Duvall Washington City Council member,  a man diagnosed by King County Washington Dr. Hedrick’s as a “sociopath with no empathy for human life”, and who enjoys taking showers with a  six year old little girl.

 

Source Pennington v Pennington, Washington Court of Appeals Division One. 


As promised to my readers, once new information becomes available regarding John E. Pennington or his convicted bank frauding wife, Crystal Hill Pennington, the Gold Bar Reporter will post updates.


In 2010, Snohomish County’s political appointee to Dept of Emergency Management John E. Pennington asked county public records officer to come to his office. For the protection of the victim, we will only name her DR.  Once DR sat down for a one on one meeting John E. Pennington, he jumped up from his seat, closed and locked the door behind DR.  This was 2010.

 

In 2010, DR was making approx. $40,000 per year with simple administrative skills. According to a source close to DR, John E. Pennington did not sit down not behind his desk but in a chair adjacent to DR.  Immediately Pennington placed his hand on DR’s leg started massaging her leg stating” we are soul mates!”  DR jumped up from her seat and tried to leave Snohomish County Dept of Emergency Management office but the door was locked.

 

This allowed John E. Pennington to corner DR, placing his arms firmly on each of side DR’s body, locking her inside a corner of Pennington’s county office. DR started shouting for help, forcing Pennington to release DR, sadly, not before Pennington forcibly massaged her breasts, licking her neck, and caressed the inside of legs around her vagina.  DR’s shouts for help inside Snohomish County Dept. of Emergency are believed to be the reason why Pennington’s rape amounted to attempted rape of DR.


Misuse of taxpayer monies to pay off attempted rape victim, Welcome to Snohomish County Washington 

 

So what Snohomish County did not is even more staggering.  In 2010, DR’s best friend, who was also a county worker, called then Executive Aaron Reardon informing of how John E. Pennington tried to rape her best friend DR.  Reardon’s answer to John E. Pennington’s attempted rape of DR was to pay her off.

 

In 2009 to 2010, DR went from her $40,000 year administrative position to a $55,000 year pay raise with a retro-active back pay.  DR took the pay off, and Aaron Reardon failed to report the rape of DR and misappropriated public monies to hide John E. Pennington’s attempted rape of a county worker.

 

DR used taxpayer funds to obtain a breast implant, and manipulated a higher position inside the City of Marysville as Director of Emergency Management making $135,000.

 

DR refused comment as has John E. Pennington for this article.  John Pennington took it a little further and tried to obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter’s new reports that has been DENIED three times as a “prior restraint on free speech.”

However, our readers should be happy to know that the “lunatic on the loose” although fired from FEMA and Snohomish County is now teaching classes to our young children at Pierce College in Tacoma Washington.

 

Sexual predicators thrive on access to victims. With no surprise, John E. Pennington is also a man who loves church.

From FEMA to Snohomish County, to Pierce County Washington, “Lunatic on the loose”

On February 22, 2017, Pierce College public official and man responsible for killing of 43 people in the Oso mudslides, John E. Pennington, verbally assaulted a Pierce County Sheriff’s Officer caught on camera.  He also verbally threatened the Gold Bar Reporter’s process server who served John Pennington with more complaints and a subpoena.

Unfortunately, John Pennington’s criminal conduct was caught on camera and witnessed by several onlookers at the Piece County Courthouse, including three Sherriff’s Officers.

The Gold Bar Reporters recently learned that John Pennington has been treated for major mental health problems, and was kicked out of Vanderbilt College as a result.

Imagine a man with mental health problems sat as a Director of Emergency Management of Snohomish County.  A major breach to health and welfare to the taxpayers of Washington State.


John Pennington is being sued for his latest racketeering crimes and posting defamatory and untrue statements on a website he and his bank frauding wife Crystal Hill Pennington run titled  ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”  Both were served with new complaints on Thursday, and by John Pennington’s threats and tactics to intimidate court officers were witnessed on camera.

” Looney Tunes, What’s up Doc?

“Lunatic on the loose” John E Pennington has been trying for over eight years to obtain a prior restraint on free speech against the Gold Bar Reporter’s reports on his and our former bank frauding Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud Snohomish County, Washington 2005).    Why, to hide their criminal racketeering conduct the Gold Bar Reporter have been exposing for over the last ten years, including a foe online website the Penningtons set up to cyber-stalk their opponents.

Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers was deposed in November 2016, and he too admitted he was a anonymous cyber-stalker on the Penningtons’ website while he was a Gold Bar public official. Beavers and the City are being sued for gross civil rights violations.

On Thursday February 22, 2017, the lunatics tried for the tenth time to obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter, but this time forum shopping in Pierce County.  A county where Crystal Hill Pennington doesn’t live and a county where John Pennington managed to fraud state taxpayers ( and our children) with false academic credentials obtaining a job teaching our youngsters.

Imagine you sign up for Homeland Security degree at Pierce College and your classes are being taught by a man who has admitted to having and using false academic credentials


 

FALSE ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS, JOHN E. PENNINGTON’S FRAUD

Please see the attached ABOVE PDF Government Accountability Report  ( or link provided above) on public official John E Pennington’s online diploma mill school of choice.  I also include Seattle Times article in support of John Pennington’s false academic credential.

 

As both reports unmistakably confirms the IRS found that California Coastal sold degrees at flat rates.  As such,  Mark Lindquist, please consider this letter and supporting evidence in support on my criminal complaint against John E. Pennington as he produced his fraudulent online degree to obtain a benefit in violation of

As for Pierce College, I’d like some comment from the Dean of Students and/or  Board of Trustees Chair Ms. Roseblatt on why Pierce College approved employment of John E. Pennington with such fraudulent degrees.

As a taxpayer, I have standing to bring not only a criminal complaint for John Pennington false filings, but also a civil charge for state ethics violations.

Our children deserve better from us.


VERBALLY ASSAULTING COURT OFFICERS

John E. Pennington has yet one more credential to add his resume, threatening public and court officers.

With each new credential, the Gold Bar Reporter will update his resume.

Criminal charges have been filed against John E Pennington with his court appearance this month.


Why the Washington State Bar Association will be abolished

If you look at great human civilizations, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, you will see that most do not fail simply due to external threats but because of internal weakness, corruption, or a failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse.  Cory Booker


 

A couple of years ago, I decided to the best way to fight this massive racketeering organization, also known as the Washington State Bar Association, was to network with like minded open government residents.  One fact is clear, we can’t do it alone.

I can think of no better gift to leave behind than exposing corrupt government officials, forcing change where change is needed.

A few weeks ago, I heard my judicial hero, 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Justice Alex Kozinski, gave an interview to 60 Minutes reporter Lesley Stall.  I have been following many of Justice Kozkiski’s decisions, and each and every decision he writes I found myself agreeing with him.

In 2015, Justice Kozinski wrote a scathing opinion against King County Prosecutor Dan Satterburg and Mark Larsen’s deliberate withholding of evidence until after a person’s trial.  King County did this with the assistance of a career criminal/employee, Kelli Williams.

King County’s withholding of evidence to ensure convictions, making criminals out of non-criminals, was well stated by Justice Kozinski in the Joshua Frost decision.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, violated a well settles rules requiring the disclosure of information material to the case “ by willfully withholding evidence of Shaw’s domestic-violence plea deal and permitting Shaw to lie on the stand… they kept Shaw’s plea agreement secret until two days after Frost was convicted even though they had been signed well before the start of his trial ” Kozinski wrote.

Kozinski also wrote “the prosecution’s tactic was deliberate, not an oversight.”

Anyone who has been dealing with any County in Washington attempting to seek access to public records knows one thing, the agencies have placed criminals inside to answer citizens public records request.


 

For me, Alex Kozinski represents “justice’ and the only reason why this single mother spent thirteen ( 13) years in higher education, while working as a machinist on 3rd shift.  Strangely, Alex Kozinski was appointed by President Ronald Reagan, a man I viewed as demented way before the press finally decided to report it.  My point in stating this is fact is that I was not a supporter of the late Ronald Reagan, but in fact casted my first vote against him.  However, I do admire him for appointing the Honorable Justice Kozinski to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Justice Kozinski was born to a Jewish family from Bucharest, Romania, in July 1950.  In 1962, when he was 12, his parents, both Holocaust survivors, brought him to the United States. The family settled in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, where his father, Moses, ran a small grocery store. Kozinski, who had grown up as a committed communist in Bucharest, became what he described as “an instant capitalist” when he tasted gum and bananas.

We Americans are all immigrants unless you’re native American.  That’s what makes America unique, but the best part of America is what Thomas Jefferson dragged back with him from Europe, the First Amendment.

The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition.  It forbids Congress from both promoting one religion over others and also restricting an individual’s religious practices.  It guarantees freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely.  It also guarantees the right of citizens to assemble peaceably and to petition their government.

Source: https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/first_amendment

Hence why I admire and respect Alex Kozinski, as he understands that the First Amendment of U.S. Constitution’s provision of writing and speaking freely without interference is essential to any free society.  Without it, we are no better than China or Saudi Arabia.

At the center of rotten onion is the Washington State Bar Association monopolized by criminals withholding evidence to ensure convictions and to assist Association Washington Cities ( AWC) and the Washington State Attorney General’s Office with going after honest lawyers to limit liability.  It’s a racketeering organization controlled by free market participants like convicted frauders like attorney G. Geoffrey Gibbs ( see story below).

Interesting to note that G. Geoffrey Gibbs has been sued for racketeering six times. But instead of being disbarred like any criminal would be, Washington State illegally assigned him as a Commissioner Pro Tem and his law firm heads of the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association.  This to ensure Snohomish County’s racketeering scam is hidden from Washington State’s public disclosure laws.


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”  Margaret Mead.

This year We will have our first annual meeting, and are now linked up with like minded people in almost every county in Washington State.

We must do everything in our power to make sure criminals misusing our public offices are brought to justice regardless of the cost to ourselves.  Our children’s children deserve to live in a democracy free from corrupt government officials, not under Hitler’s regime.

Stay tuned, as we are going to abolish the Washington State Bar Association, as the center of the racketeering criminal ring is the Washington State Bar Association.


Here’s just one example of a high ranking Washington State Bar Association members crimes against Washingtonians.

 

attorneys, Sister Sara Di Vittorio and Geoffrey Gibbs, all things evil inside Washington State Bar

UPDATE: It’s been a very long eight years to piece together why Gold Bar Washington is going broke hiding public records. . . this week, we finally have the missing link to the largest corruption scandal in Washington State history.

With no surprise, it involves former Washington State Attorney General “Sister Sara” Di Vittorio tampering with public records inside the Department of Corrections (DoC) and at Snohomish County Dept. of Emergency Management, according to a whistleblower who came forward last week “ Crystal Hill disseminated your Washington State Bar application and investigative file to John Pennington and Dept of Corrections employee Lonn Turner…”

But then the WSBA got involved in helping Geoffrey Gibbs and Seth Fine cover up their criminal racketeering conduct – quashing criminal sabotaging of the city’s water system as a favor to then Executive Aaron Reardon- a US Federal attorney, now working for the WSBA, was able to misuse her connections with the fusion center.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fusion_center

The racketerists herein illegally gained access into a “spider” of information on Block’s family members attempting to extort Block just like they did to former council member in 2007.  But by now, Crystal Hill ( convicted of bank fraud using an alias of Berg in 2005) had illegally possessed and disseminated medical files via Washington State emails in March 2009, the Washington State Bar to hide their criminal racketeering ( wire) crimes hired Scmipff to help conceal public records/files. Files that were illegally obtained ( without a warrant) and illegally disseminated via electronic means. Dissemination of medical files for a Mass residents is prohibited and is a federal felony, amounts to Rackeetering, punishable by 20-30 years in federal prison.

A file that Geoffrey Gibbs and Seth Fine both members of the Washington State Bar Boards in 2009 stole then disseminated the stolen file to Gold Bar’s then lawyer’s paralegal Barbara Johnson ( Weed Gaafstra, Benson) who then disseminated the stolen files to Crystal Hill, who then disseminated the stolen files to former Gold Bar council member Lonn Turner ( at LTurner@DoC.wa.gov) and disgraced Snohomish County political appointee John E. Pennington  (man responsible for the rape of a 5 year old child from Cowlitz County, Washington).

While working at the DoC, Sister Sara tampered with public records as a ” risk management” a felony in Washington State and certainly Racketeering.  According to a whistleblower, to wire crimes for high ranking WSBA members and disgraced former Washington State lobbyist G. Geoffrey Gibbs ( see below).

Unfortunately for the WSBA, Crystal Hill, John Pennington, Lonn Turner, G. Geoffrey Gibbs, and Sister Sara Di Vittorio, Gold Bar had a clerk ( who was caught via hidden camera stealing from Gold Bar resulting in her termination in 2012) who wasn’t sharpest tool in the shed. . .  it will be interesting to see if the Courts are going to help us abolish the WSBA or just simply reform it?

Everett attorney and WA State Bar Board member Geoffrey Gibbs caught red handed via public records filing false statements with Judicial Ethics Commission, and violating Sherman Anti-Trust to assist Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office in going after any lawyer who exposes corruption involving attorney Geoffrey Gibbs, the criminals inside the WA State Bar ( Linda Eide, Lin O’Dell, and Doug Ende), and Snohomish County criminal Racketeering outfit (an RICO Enterprise operating from Snohomish County Judicial and Prosecutor’s Office).

In 2009, attorney Geoffrey Gibbs misused his political offices to assist Crystal Hill Pennington, John E. Pennington, Aaron Reardon, and Joe Beavers to cover up the Karl Marjerle sabotaging the City of Gold Bar’s water system.  Racketeering captured in public records.

Attorney Geoffrey Gibbs has been sued for Racketeering five times in the last two years for his criminal conduct.  An email from Everett Prosecutor Michael Fischer from G. Geoffrey Gibbs has  Gibbs sending an email to a Prosecutor demanding that he file criminal assault charges against Carolyn Ryggs so that she will have to expend a very large retainer to hire counsel. Because Gibbs was in a land dispute with the Ryggs after public records confirmed that was using Judge Michael Downes to steal Carolyn Ryggs’s land.

Geoffrey Gibbs’s fraud in the 1990s as illustrated by the Washington Public Disclosure Commission is well documented below.

Now, Geoffrey Gibbs criminal Enterprise and public records confirm that Gibbs and Prosecutor Seth Fine are the main reason why Snohomish County yields over 40 % of disciplined lawyer inside the WA State Bar, while the highest populated county, King County ( Seattle) , only yields 12 %. According to our counsel, clear Sherman Anti-Trust violations; a federal felony.

We’re also working on a story linking the Klan to the ” Ok Boys Home” a story worth waiting for.

Just another stellar example of why the Washington State Bar will be abolished.

My step-grandpa in his later years was getting a little less coherent, when I was younger he was a very prejudiced man, he only loved one black man and that was Robert, but once a black family moved into the neighborhood he sold his house and built a new one in Valparaiso, in Sherwood Forest no less. Although I never once heard him use a derogatory term, the message was clear.

He owned the Hy-Speed car wash in Gary Indiana close to the Jackson home, yes as in the Jackson 5, Janet, and the creepy parents. I would go over and play with them and it drove my Grampa Joe nuts, he’d make me take a shower before I got in the car and I was never allowed to eat anything there or go inside their house.

One day when I was back home visiting I walked into the den and Grandpa was sitting there with the biggest smile on his face. He was watching Michael Jackson. I said Grandpa whatcha watching, he looked at me and said. This is a great country, do you know how I know that? I said no Grandpa I don’t. He points to the TV and said there is that little boy you used to play with. I said I know Grandpa but what does that have to do with anything? He said only in America can a poor little black boy grow up to be a rich white woman and then he smiled. As much as I didn’t like the message he had a point.

It’s like that with G. Geoffrey Gibbs, only in Washington can a convicted lobbyist, grow up to be on the Board of Governor’s and treasurer of the Washington State Bar Association, then become a Snohomish County Commissioner and get some of the most lucrative contracts in the county

Waste management would be foaming at the mouth if they truly understood the amount of trash just rolling around our county

George “G.” Geoffrey Gibbs. a lobbyist took many a politician, lawyer and judge on trips to Sunriver resorts, fishing trips in BC and on bus rides down to Jubitz Truck Stop/Ponderosa Lounge where having a hooker or a “lot lizard would simply be redundant. A reporter said as much but I checked with a former trucker and he immediately got embarrassed, turned red and told me to never go there. I’m going to take that to mean the reporter was telling the truth.

Looking at Pennington’s divorce records it shows that his then wife also complained to the courts that she has gotten a sexually transmitted disease from him 3 times during their marriage, I guess we know why now.

Remember, Pennington and Appelwick were “Dear Friends” since the 90’s

So… behold the power of the newspaper archives:

We found numerous stories about Mr Gibbs, Judge Appelwick, Joe King and few other power players in this state. Stories that have basically been “washed” from the internet which is a common ploy used by many politicians and lawyers to hide the truth.

Seems our school super Randy Dorn was one of his recipients (which might explain why so many disgraced senators, and state legislators end up in the Education system: some midterm

Other power players include but are not limited to:

Senator Al Bauer who oddly enough is out and about filing ethics complaints I guess he would know…

Representative Joe King who left Olympia to start his own lobbying company or political strategy company.

Although Appeals Court Judges seems to have gotten the most benefit from this relationship, even today…

Not only does Gibbs have an Appelwick in his pocket he has learned well and placed people from his current law firm on:

The Public Disclosure Commission,

The Commission on Judicial Conduct,

The Washington State Bar Association,

Anyway here are some of the newspaper clippings we have gotten so far. I have literally 1000’s more documents thanks to the hard work of someone who spent the day gathering the records… There are more records but I am still trying to put them in albums so that they can follow some type of pattern and are better understood.

On that note, sorry I have been AWOL but please remember I am working on quite a few huge stories, and I write this paper mostly by myself but trust me when I say: It will be worth the wait.

The First Amendment prevails in Pierce County, John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington providing more evidence of RICO

“Open letter to Crystal Hill Pennington, a victim of Domestic Abuse”  

” Stop telling yourself you can fix him.  He’s been this way for a long, long time and he doesn’t intend to change. Don’t be a sacrificial lamb on the alter of rage. Don’t play the martyr to his hate.  You can never save someone by letting them destroy you. That’s not love, that’s relational suicide. Save yourself instead.  Get out while there is still time.”

John Mark Green


John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington’s “fraud upon the Washington Courts, providing more evidence of RICO. Restraining order proceedings provide under oath testimony of Penningtons racketeering. A new racketeering suit coming. “

truth_is_the_new_hate_speech

For over eight years, John E. Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington have filed countless forged court records, filed false police reports with at least three county agencies, and committed perjury in an effort to SLAPP down investigation on his criminal racketeering crimes.

From September 2016 to present, John E Pennington and his battered 4th wife Crystal Hill Pennington have been pursuing a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter. Why? Because they don’t like being public officials subject to public scrutiny. First  Amendment, New York Times v Sullivan.

New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964),[1] was a landmark United States Supreme Court case that established the actual malice standard, which has to be met before press reports about public officials can be considered to be defamation and libel;[2] and hence allowed free reporting of the civil rights campaigns in the southern United States. It is one of the key decisions supporting the freedom of the press.

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Times_Co._v._Sullivan


Pierce County holds ” John and Crystal Hill Pennington’s request for restraining order amounts to a prior restraint on free speech. Therefore, DENIED. ”

But not before everyone was placed under oath and here’s what came out in documents the Gold Bar Reporter presented to the court:

Pedophile

In 2010,  John E. Pennington is a diagnosed as a ” sociopath with no empathy for human life” Dr. Hedricks, King County Superior Court.

Pages from Penny

See http://www.courts.wa.gov/content/Briefs/A01/653172%20appellant’s.pdf#search=Laughlin v Pennington

 

John E Pennington’s criminal conduct and violent outburst replicate serial murderer Ted Bundy.

 

Theodore Robert Bundy (born Theodore Robert Cowell; November 24, 1946 – who  Biographer Ann Rule described him as “a sadistic sociopath who took pleasure from another human’s pain and the control he had over his victims, to the point of death, and even after”. 

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Bundy

 

Only one difference between Ted Bundy and John E. Pennington, Ted Bundy was fairly educated and smart.  John E. Pennington never completed a real college degree ( like Crystal Hill Pennington’s online diploma mill degree from an Eastern Oregon State, a college with accreditation problems ).


Pierce County Court restraining order proceedings finally put to rest that the evidence we collected on John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington is true

John E Pennington labeled a sociopath by Dr Hedricks. True 

John E Pennington ( 42 year of age at the time of sexual exploitation of a young girl)  taking inappropriate naked showers with a six year old girl with his penis slung in her face once caught by a witness.  True 

John E. Pennington did cause 43 people in the Oso mudslide to suffocate to death because instead of performing emergency management duties, John Pennington was violating Snohomish County’s Ordinance( prohibiting salaried workers from moonlighting), John Pennington was violating the law and preforming private FEMA contracts on the east coast while 43 people suffocated In Oso mudslides. John Pennington was found to be in dereliction of duties.  True.

Negligent homicide is a much lower intent crime and is used as a charge when one person causes the death of another through criminal negligence. John Pennington is guilty of killing 43 people in Oso mudslides.   

John Pennington is a man with a violent history that cant keep his hands to himself. True.

redmond-pd1_Page_1

pennington-redmond_Page_1

John E.  Pennington was allowed to sexually exploit children.  True.

pages-from-socipath-john-pennington-2

One major admission under oath came from Crystal Hill Pennington (nee Berg) finally had to admit under oath that she was in fact convicted of bank fraud.  True.

See below.

 

canvas canvas1  Hill Penington bank fraud

On April 27, 2017, Crystal Hill Pennington was forced to admit under oath that she was guilty of bank fraud. I also noted for the record that Crystal Hill Pennington had been stealing form the City of Gold Bar.

An objective observer was in the audience who said ” where did the Penningtons’ take acting classes? Those tears were pathetic attempt to sway the judge… ”

When the judge decided against the Penningtons SLAPP, John Pennington threw his files against the wall and was very disrespectful to the judge.  This caught the attention of the sheriff’s officer who feared for our lives insisting on giving us a personal escort to our cars.

A video grapher was present and captured John Pennington’s violent outbursts on camera.

John and  Crystal Hill Pennington’s true colors also known as criminal harassment, provided more evidence of RICO, and a new lawsuit has been filed for defamatory actions taken from 2016 to present.
A copy of the audio will be posted soon.
