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.

Joe Beavers, Ramsey Ramerman, City of Kirkland, and Association of Washington Cities “team up” to destroy the Public Records Act

IMG_1239

Joe Beavers, Gold Bar’s former Mayor  involved in the largest racketeering scandal in Washington State history, now he has company,  Everett city attorney Ramsey Ramerman


awc

Association of Washington Cities (AWC) never ceases to amaze me with its hatred of Washington State’s Sunshine laws.   But then again, if I committed racketeering offenses against citizens the way AWC and Joe Beavers have, may be I might consider being the “Whitey Bulgar” of Washington too. 

Over the last five years, AWC teamed up with Gold Bar’s demented old now former Mayor, Joe Beavers.  Joe Beavers was recently deposed in a public records case admitted that while Mayor of Gold Bar he edited Washington State Bar complaints against local Gold Bar activist, and he allowed Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington ( who plead guilty to bank fraud in 2005, Snohomish County; and served time in North Carolina in  2000 for bank fraud) to remove public records from Gold Bar that have never been seen again. 

Joe Beavers is being sued for racketeering with a new suit to be filed out of state shortly, so hang on to your seats!  This one will include a few new players.

Last week, several of us open government supporters went to Olympia to attend and testify at legislative hearings and was surprised to learn that the City of Kirkland is now involved in scamming the voters of Washington into believing their City is under a public records attack.   

However, what the poor City of Kirkland didn’t tell the Washington State Legislature was that the demented old man who attacked the City of Kirkland was no other than two long standing anti-open government supporters, Everett attorney Ramsey Ramerman and Gold Bar’s demented old Mayor Joe Beavers.

Ramsey Ramerman scamming the voters of Washington as a favor to AWC


Now, if my readers aren’t confused enough, here’s an interesting fact: Ramsey was the City of Gold Bar’s attorney while Joe Beavers was Mayor of Gold Bar. Since litigation is still pending, with more public records suits to be filed on Tuesday, Conflict ? You bet!

Even though Revised Codes of Washington prohibit a city attorney from practicing law while serving as the City’s attorney, Ramerman ignores those silly little laws because he’s on the payroll of the racketeering gang from AWC frauding the taxpayers of Everett. 

AWC is the largest insurance company for cities all over Washington. Every year they send agency employees to Olympia in its attempts to destroy our sunshine laws. So much so that Gold Bar’s public records document that AWC paid Joe Beavers to attend legislative hearings pumping up the poor old grandfather who is trying to help the City defense but is being attacked by a highly educated newcomer. 

In August 2012, Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers staged a bank fraud calling it a hacking falsely claiming that the City’s online accounts had been “hacked” and $495,000.00 had been stolen over a twelve month period. Through public records retrieved from the City of Portland, we learned that Beavers so called hacking was an internal job committed by several public officials here in Gold Bar, Joe Beavers, John Pennington ( terminated after he killed 43 people in the Oso mudslides because instead of doing his job, he criminally harassed his opponents on a website he anonymously cuber-stalked people on), and Laura Kelly ( who was fired for stealing in 2012).  

Bank of America paid only $120,000.00 of what Beavers alleged was missing from the City’s so called hacking. The FBI in Portland confirmed that no such hacking had ever taken place. 

We contacted Bank of America and AWC with the following letter: 


Gold Bar’s Fraud EXPOSED in public records

 

After our investigation yielded that Gold Bar’s so called “hacking” was more than likely internal theft from a Gold Bar insider, we wrote a letter to the American Association of Washington Cities, after it continues to withhold public records claiming that the FBI in Portland is investigating what Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers continues to falsely state on the public record:

Mr. Bryan –

 Thank you for your response. Let me give you a little hint.  I had my private investigators obtain and contact the City of Portland because I believe based on the evidence that I reviewed from Portland and from the City of Gold Bar that Joe Beavers so called “ hacking” was an internal job. 

 Police records from Portland stated that a man that fits the description of John Pennington to a Tee while in Portland gave Beavers so called “ hackers’ the passwords to access the online accounts in Gold Bar.  It took some time to gather those records, but we did, and made contacts, and from this we believe that the man the so called hackers said called himself Joe Beavers was John Pennington.  

 Let’s face it Mr. Bryan, the last audit report was clear that there’s 200K missing from Gold Bar’s city accounts and not one city employee can explain where it went.  Let’s use an analogy.  If I had someone accessed my account online and depleted 200K over an extended period of time and then lied to the public as Joe Beavers clearly did as evidenced by the Portland Police reports, Bank of America (BOA) would have reason to believe that it was an internal job too. 

 Simple common sense.

 Let’s add the fact that the so called hackers had the account numbers and passwords, according to the Portland PD.  In fact, the police reports from Portland suggest that this was a major red flag for BOA.  Duh?  And let’s face it, BOA has some great auditors, because they have an incentive to make sure fraudsters ( like former Mayor Crystal Hill Berg, bank frauder 2005) are brought to justice. 

 If I had 200K missing from my accounts, and then tried to cover up the theft by creating a diversion, I suspect that BOA might have some reservations about paying the claim as they clearly did in Gold Bar two years ago.

 Now, provide me with a copy of the public record pursuant to RCW 42.56 you are claiming was provided by the FBI in native format with metadata, because based on the police files from Portland that I reviewed, and my private investigators files, Gold Bar’s so called hacking was an internal job.   Again, all I can do is weigh the evidence that I received and reviewed under the PRA, and I believe what the BOA believes, Gold Bar’s so called theft was an internal job.

UPDATE: Ramsey sent the Gold Bar Reporter the  following letter:

 

Ms. Block,

 

 

I appreciated your willingness to redact my personal address from your article, thank you for that.

 

With regards to the substance of the article, I have several issues.  First, the substance of your story is incorrect.  There was no collusive effort between Joe and I (or as far as I know any collusion between Kirkland and Joe).   Moreover, the City of Kirkland was fully informed about my past dealings with Joe.  Hopefully when you review my emails with Joe you will agree. 

 

Second, and more important, you allegation that I am knowingly violating the law by having a private legal practice is legally incorrect and defamatory.  You have not cited to any provision of in the RCWs that  prohibits attorneys from having a private practice while working for a city because none exist.  There is such a statute for deputy prosecutors working for counties, but there is nothing in the RCWs governing cities that contain a similar prohibition.  Moreover, accusing an attorney of violate the law is per se defamatory.  This I would ask again that your correct that statement. 

 

Third, I am not paid by AWC or in any way working for them. 

 

Fourth, although my emails with Joe regarding the Kirkland lawsuit are not public records, I am willing to provide you with copies of them as a showing of good faith.  They are not public records however.  I was not acting as a city of Everett employee when emailing Joe regarding the Kirkland lawsuit so under Nissen they are not the city of Everett’s public records.  And under West v. Thurston County, records of a private attorney that have not been provided to the agency are not the agency’s public records so my emails with Joe are also not Kirkland’s public records (except for any emails I forwarded to the City).  Nevertheless, am willing to provide them to you.  I will take me about a week to make them available.

 

Thank you

 

Ramsey Ramerman

 

 

 

From FEMA to Snohomish County Washington, dark secrets unearthed

Pedophile


We’ve been investigating John Pennington’s past thirty years on this planet for over seven years.

We never thought we’d get to this point, finally uncovering why John E. Pennington has been so desperately trying to hide hs past. Well it’s simple, he’s a pedophile and a wife beater, and once the feds learned the truth he was terminated from FEMA.


John Pennington is a sociopath; and how he met an attorney named Michael Kenyon who helped Johnny cover up his rape of a five year old child from Cowlitz County.

Well documented in our past stories https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/04/04/attorney-michael-kenyons-dirty-bag-of-secrets-part-ii/


What John Pennington was trying to hide for so many years

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 in June 2016.  Stay tuned, it will be our pleasure to bring it “live” to our followers.

Former Gold Bar Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington’s fraud EXPOSED

seattle-wedding-photography-cj24 (2)

Former Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington  ( nee Berg) EXPOSED


The Gold Bar Reporters were first to break the story about Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington’s bank fraud conviction. According to a former insider, it’s a little about what Gold Bar’s Mayor Linda Loen and Joe Beavers are covering up inside the emails. Costing the taxpayers of Gold Bar over $1,000,000.00 as of today with no end in sight.

According to the Washington State Auditor’s Gold Bar Audit report, dated November 2014, there’s over $200,000.00 missing from the City’s funds ( water) and not one single employee can explain where it went.

According to a former Gold Bar council member,  ” I believe Crystal Hill was stealing from the City!”

We here at the Gold Bar Reporters have read enough emails between Crystal Hill and Gold Bar’s former clerk treasurer Laura Kelly to know that Crystal Hill and Laura Kelly were involved in a check cashing scheme. The scheme as we exposed in 2013 involved Crystal Hill, a non-lawyer, signing up for Continue Legal Education and other classes, paid for with Gold Bar taxpayer monies, then canceling, then having a refund check reissued.

Since Crystal Hill’s Bank of America account in Sultan was frozen for continuing to pass bad bank checks  ( 2006-2009) to her mortgage holder and others, even after she plead guilty to bank fraud for the same offense, Gold Bar’s clerk Laura Kelly would cash the refund check and give Crystal Hill cash in return.

Our readers should know that there’s no evidence that Laura Kelly or Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg bank fraud 2005) returned the refunded monies to the taxpayers of Gold Bar.

The Washington State Auditor’s November 2014 report noted that there’s $200,000.00 missing from the City of Gold Bar funds that not one employee can explain where it went.

In July 2012, Gold Bar’s clerk treasurer was caught by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, via a hidden camera placed in her office inside Gold Bar City Hall putting stolen city funds back and then lying to a police officer.

Caught red handed, but since Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers needed Ms. Kelly’s declaration for ongoing litigation, and to assist in hiding his email crimes of domestic spying ( running illegal background checks on open government supporters out here in Gold Bar) and extortion scheme involving Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management’s former Director John E. Pennington,  Joe Beavers requested Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Seth Fine not prosecute Laura Kelly.

Mr. Fine was in charge of the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s criminal unit at the time of each one of these offenses, but now with ongoing RICO suits pending as it relates to the County’s involvement, he was moved to the county’s civil unit.

According to our legal counsel, a clear obstruction of justice and RICO violations by all involved; and since Kelly was the City’s clerk treasurer at the time of the theft, a felony theft charge should have been pursued.

Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers is being sued for Racketeering in US Federal District Court, and the case in the appeals process awaiting the 9th Circuit’s Remand Order.

Late yesterday, we learned from another reporter that Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) also managed to obtain federal contracts with FEMA Emergency Management Institute (EMI).

There’s only problem for Crystal Hill Pennington; as a child raised by a father who worked for the federal government his whole life, I learned a lot about the internal workings of the federal government including that a  person who plead guilty to fraud of any kind is ineligible for federal contracts or federal employment of any kind.

Now, I had to call a friend who I attended law school with, who is now a federal attorney in Washington D.C. to answer one question:  If a person pleads guilty to fraud and manages to expunge their criminal history, either by deferred prosecution or expunging the conviction record itself, does this make them eligible to be awarded federal contracts?

The attorney said ” she is ineligible for most federal benefits, contracts or employment, as a result of her fraud conviction regardless of whether any state expunges the record. In fact, if you look at the application she had to affirm to under oath and sign, You will see an exclusion clause just above the signature line. This clause specifically requests that the person seeking federal contracts to affirm under oath that they have never plead guilty to or been convicted of fraud. Whether or not she’s eligible for state contracts is not relevenat to whether this excludes her from federal employment and contracts. ”

A complaint against Crystal Hill Pennington is being pursued and a public records request has been sent to FEMA EMI seeking copies of any files relating to Crystal Hill Pennington’s FEMA EMI contracts.  Once received, we will post copies.

If anyone thinks that this taxpayer will sit idle while my taxpayer monies are being misused to support a person who plead guilty to fraud, You don’t know me too well.
