Washington State Bar Association, to be abolished over felonious conduct

Late last summer, the Gold Bar Reporter was first to break a story about the Washington State Bar Association’s dropping the word ” association.”

Our source, an insider close to Supreme Court Justice Barbara Madsen stated ” the WSBA is trying to come up with a plan to push liability off on Washington State taxpayers, because it’s clear that the Bar is going to lose Scannell v WSBA et al. and Block v WSBA et al. over felonious racketeering and anti-trust violations. ”

We just learned that Washington State Bar  Association has officially voted to drop the word association, in an effort to push liability of 50 Million plus onto Washington State taxpayers, instead of pushing liability to its’ members the above two cases.

In Block’s cases, public records from Snohomish County and the United States Post Office documented that John Pennington ( man who killed 43 people in the Oso mudslides, only suspect in the rape of 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington, and is now working for Pierce College), set up a post office box in Duvall Washington to pass  financial bribes to attorney Lin O’Dell and her convicted killer boyfriend  Mark Plivilech, while at the same time, John Pennington is the  man, according to the lead detective on a Cowlitz  County case from 1992, the man who is responsible for the rape of a 5 year old girl.   Instead of suing Block, John Pennington enlisted his friend Linda Eide, Washington State Bar’s lead counsel, and Washington State Bar Board member Geoffrey Gibbs, to go after Block, a journalist who held a WSBA Bar license, for reporting on John Pennington criminal conduct.

In John Scannell ‘s case, Washington State Bar counsel members Scott Bugsby and Linda Eide tried to gain access into John Scannell’s attorney client files in an effort to go after a Board member’s political foe and Scannell’s client Paul King.

A source said ” The Bar knows that once you two win, you’re coming after them personall to collect damages, starting with members of the WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel.”


Washington State Bar’s letter to its members

 

IMPORTANT – if you want the WSBA to continue as your professional association, you should attend one or more of three upcoming meetings at the Seattle WSBA offices, discussed more completely below:

  • Public meeting of the WSBA Bylaws Workgroup on August 8
  • Special Meeting of the BOG on Aug 23
  • Regular Meeting of the BOG on Sept 29/30.

I attended the WSBA BOG meeting Friday in Walla Walla, having recently realized (through my work on theSections Policy Workgroup) that the BOG is now starting to implement a comprehensive series of sweeping changes to (i) the WSBA Bylaws, (ii) Court Rule 12.1 and to (iii) the Bar Act.

These changes are being implemented incrementally for tactical reasons, but are designed and intended ultimately to:

  • Substantially reduce the ability of Members to influence WSBA governance – in violation of the Bar Act,
  • Eliminate the WSBA’s role as its “Members” professional association,
  • Wholly and unambiguously convert the WSBA into a public entity/government agency with the singular and exclusive mission of serving the public, and
  • Enhance and expand the scope of the Washington State Supreme Court’s influence and control over all aspects of the WSBA (including setting Member dues), not just matters relating to licensing, regulation, attorney discipline and other such areas.

These changes are part of a longer term and little known Strategic Plan that is the product of these and other key WSBA leaders:

  • Executive Director Paula Littlewood,
  • Immediate Past President Anthony Gipe,
  • President William Hyslop,
  • WSBA General Counsel Jean McElroy

The full scope of the changes and the underlying justifications for them are detailed in:

For your convenience, here’s a link to the Public Materials for the Walla Walla meeting (all 656 pages):

I then identified four of the proposed Bylaw Amendments most concerning to me:

  • First, I strongly objected to changing the name of the WSBA after 128 years to drop the word “Association,” emphasizing that this change is explicitly intended clarifythat the WSBA is not actually a professional association of attorneys. I said I thought most WSBA Members would find this highly objectionable and would be quite surprised to learn that they weren’t really part of a professional association for lawyers.
  • Second, I objected to putting the Washington Supreme Court in charge of determining members’ dues and said I thought others would too.
  • Third, I described the creation of three more appointed Board seats as undemocratic and bad from a governance perspective because appointed seats are subject to abuse by vesting too much power in the hands of too few. [Note: these changes to the BOG composition would also directly violate RCW 2.48.030of the Bar Act regarding the “Board of Governors.” The BOG is arguably illegally constituted currently based on that RCW.]
  • Fourth, I objected to giving limited license practitioners a greatly out-sized percentage of the Board seats relative to their de minimis numbers – i.e., 2 Board seats from a total of fewer than 20 limited license practitioners. [In my view, these folks should have to run within their Districts just like other Bar Members. At best they should be entitled to only a single designated seat.]

A reporter who was present at the Washington State Bar’s meeting said ” I added that I had read through the Governance Task Force Report twice in recent days and that I wasn’t too enamored with it, and that I had found much of its key analysis conclusionary and unpersuasive.”

He further stated “My comments stirred up quite a few folks, including current and former BOG members, several of whom said essentially that these issues had already been debated and discussed for a long time and that it was time to move forward with all of the recommendations in the Governance Report, including the first group of Bylaw Amendments under consideration.  These Governance Report recommendations have strong momentum. One gentleman even said he didn’t necessarily agree with the decisions made but that a lot of time and effort had going into them and it was time to start passing them because folks had done a lot of work and he wanted to see the results. So much for not being pushed into bad decisions by undue focus on sunk costs. ”

 

Mr. Gipe is currently running for King County Superior Court Position #52 – a position that could be the first step on a path to the Washington State Supreme Court, where he could ultimately exercise the control over the WSBA that he currently seeks to vest in that body. I personally feel it is very important to prevent this and thus to keep Mr. Gipe out of the judiciary. That is why I have gone to great lengths to support his opponent in the race. If you share my concerns…. Proposed Policies Eliminating or Restricting Religious (Cultural) Practices During the morning discussion of the WSBA’s proposed restrictions on religious practices, members of the Indian Law Section EC and many others from varied backgrounds advocated strongly that the Indian Law Section should be allowed to continue whatever religious and cultural practices they thought were appropriate, both for reasons of ensuring those who practice

Washington State Attorney General intentionally destroying public records, claim we are attorneys sworn in to uphold the law but we didn’t know it was a felony to destroy records in Washington State DEFENSE  

Washington State Revised law reads:

RCW 40.16.010, Injury to public record.

Every person who shall willfully and unlawfully remove, alter, mutilate, destroy, conceal, or obliterate a record, map, book, paper, document, or other thing filed or deposited in a public office, or with any public officer, by authority of law, is guilty of a class C felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in a state correctional facility for not more than five years, or by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars, or by both.
NOTES:
Intent—Effective date—2003 c 53: See notes following RCW 2.48.180.

 


 

Ignorantia juris non excusat 

( source Wikipedia, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ignorantia_juris_non_excusat )

Ignorantia juris non excusat[1] or ignorantia legis neminem excusat[2] (Latin for “ignorance of the law excuses not”[1] and “ignorance of law excuses no one”[2] respectively) is a legal principle holding that a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law merely because he or she was unaware of its content.

If ignorance of the law is not a defense for non-lawyers, it should never be a defense for attorneys


Oso lawyers deny 3

 


But hey wait, Washington State’s Attorney General’s dream team of lawyers from Christie Law Group had already been cited for the same criminal conduct of destroying records. Intentional destruction, you be the judge.

Snohomish County Daily Herald reporters Noah Haglund and Scott North appear to be doing a little less brown nosing with Snohomish County Prosecutors’ these days, in favor of subjective news reporting.

Attorney General Bob Ferguson

On August 24, 2016, Scott North and Noah Haglund published an article that the Washington State Attorney General’s Office was intentionally destroying evidence in the Oso mudslide trials. However, what Scott North and Noah Haglund failed to tell Snohomish County readers was that several prosecutors, Sara Di Vittorio and Miquel Tempski,  were moved from Washington State Attorney General’s Office to Snohomish County’s prosecutors office to help conceal public records involving the man solely responsible for the Oso mudslide , John E Pennington.

Sara Di Vittorio ( also dubbed as Sister Sara by the Gold Bar Reporters) in 2014 appeared at open public meeting in Olympia telling the Washington State Legislature ” We’re out of money to protect county workers under the Public Records Act.”

Oh yes, Sister Sara, w all know how expensive it is when government deceives and commits crimes against it’s people.”  But wait, isn’t your job monitored by the WSBA mandating that you not commit crimes?  Or did you not know that tampering with public records in Washington is a felony.

Now, because of the Attorney General’s conduct captured so nicely by the Oso plaintiff’s attorneys, we now know what Sister Sara Di Vittorio was referring to, also known as tampering with public records to reduce liability.

John E Pennington is the sole person responsible for mitigation in the Oso mudslides, but instead of doing his job, John Pennington operated his own company using county government  staff, sexually harassed employees, spent enormous time searching on Match.com for extramarital affairs, caught hacking via public records, violently assaulted his ex-wives, and criminally harassed his opponents on a website he set up with disgraced former Executive Aaron Reardon titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”


The Sky Valley Chronicle and John Pennington are being sued for racketeering in US Federal District with depositions expected to start in early 2017.   In 2016, the Gold Bar Reporter was first to break the story on John Pennington’s criminal conduct as outlined below:


 

Also,  John Pennington’s forth wife Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud in North Carolina in 2000 and in Snohomish County in 2005) are being sued for Racketeering in US Federal Court with a  new Racketeering and a lawsuit just in time for 2017.

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  ( Washington County Case # D911027SC made to pay restitution) after he hospitalized his fiancé in Oregon.

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.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 
The spoliation of evidence is the intentional, reckless, or negligent withholding, hiding, altering, fabricating, or destroying of evidence relevant to a legal proceeding.[1] Spoliation has two possible consequences: in jurisdictions where the (intentional) act is criminal by statute, it may result in fines and incarceration (if convicted in a separate criminal proceeding) for the parties who engaged in the spoliation; in jurisdictions where relevant case law precedent has been established, proceedings possibly altered by spoliation may be interpreted under a spoliation inference, or by other corrective measures, depending on the jurisdiction.

The spoliation inference is a negative evidentiary inference that a finder of fact can draw from a party’s destruction of a document or thing that is relevant to an ongoing or reasonably foreseeable civil or criminal proceeding: the finder of fact can review all evidence uncovered in as strong a light as possible against the spoliator and in favor of the opposing party.

The theory of the spoliation inference is that when a party destroys evidence, it may be reasonable to infer that the party had “consciousness of guilt” or other motivation to avoid the evidence. Therefore, the fact finder may conclude that the evidence would have been unfavorable to the spoliator. Some jurisdictions have recognized a spoliation tort action, which allows the victim of destruction of evidence to file a separate tort action against a spoliator.[2]  

For more information on Spoliation see Wikipedia at

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spoliation_of_evidence


I say subjective news reporting because Scott North and Noah Haglund have ample evidence as stated herein but only seem interested in reporting on Attorney General Bob Fergusson’s criminal conduct.

But NBC and CBS appear to be investigating John Pennington …. Stay tuned as John Pennington’s criminal conduct is about to become very public.

Hugs and kisses Linda Eide and Lin O’Dell as Your little racketeering outfit also known as the Washington State Bar is about to be abolished and we have a child/ wife abuser named John E. Pennington  and his bank frauding wife Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2000 and 2005),  who, in a roundabout way, helped make that happen.

When the 9th Circuit issues a remand order on Scannell’s case were going to throw a ” reformed Washington State Bar ” party at the Redhook Brewery. When the City of Gold Bar is forced to released the CD involving John E. Pennington illegal dissemination of personal identifying information he received via email from the Washington State Bar ( in an effort to discredit me), the City of Gold Bar will have a new recreation facility titled ” In honor of Open Government, donated by Gold Bar activist Anne Block, who believes that government should favor people over profits.”

One  question for Scott North and Noah Haglund ” Where in the World is Waldo?” My source inside Pierce College says ‘ in Virginia tying to get a political appointment. ”

Respondeat superior (Latin: “let the master answer”; plural: respondeant superiores) is a US legal doctrine which states that, in many circumstances, an employer is responsible for the actions of employees performed within the course of their employment.

The way I view Bob Ferguson’s actions, he’s responsible. The Rules of Professional Conduct also make Bob Ferguson responsible for the conduct of those he supervises.

But those silly rules are only applied against those who criticize the Washington State Bar Association. Gross violations of Sherman Anti-Trust, felonious conduct. By the time our investigation is over, the feds will have people in handcuffs inside the Washington State Bar just as they did to the Arizona Bar a few years back.

 

 

Did Sky Valley Chronicle’s agent Ron Fejfar send electronic threats to harm Gold Bar Reporter? 

Ron Fejar agent of Sky Valley Chronicle sends the below electronic threats after public records reveal he is posting internally false articles with actual malice. Fejfar has never denied a single allegation. However, if he cares to comment further with his name attached, we’d be happy to post his comments.

Public records from Snohomish County Washington document that terminated former Director of Emergency ( fired after he caused 43 people in Oso mudslides to suffocate to death) is a posting articles on Ron Fejfar’s site.

Last week, Fejfar made several telephone calls to the Gold Bar Reporter’s relatives in New England falsely stating that the Gold Bar Reporter was being sued for defamation and he  needed to know where the Gold Bar Reporter was to serve her.

In July 2014, we learned that  former Snohomish County political appointee John Pennington had been in direct contact with attorney Lin O’Dell’s convicted killer boyfriend Mark Plivilech, which we suspect to cause harm.  Further records from Snohomish County emails document that John Pennington also used Steve McLaughlin to stalk the Gold Bar Reporter at her home ( July 2014 emails from Snohomish County).

Steve McLaughlin is running for Washington State Public Lands Commissioner.

John Pennington and Fejfar are being sued for Racketeering in US Federal Court, with a new deceptive trade and slander/defamation complaint coming this week.

Depositions against Fejfar and John Pennington expected to start in January 2017.

In Ron Fejfar’s own words ( below) immediately after he was notified that a deceptive trade complaint will be filed against him and his wife  ( community property noting Fejfar admits that he and his wife stating “we”):


Email threat sent from the Sky Valley Chronicle reads as follows:

 

We do not know for a fact what person or persons is behind this email threat or other similar threats like it this company has received in recent months and years.

But let us be clear about one thing to whoever is behind this.

Should any further warrantless, harassing and retaliatory in nature legal actions of any kind be forthcoming against this newspaper and/or our corporation and/or individuals associated with this enterprise, or other actions of any kind which would lead to further harm to our business or individuals associated with it in any way, our intent is and has been for some time to launch a blistering and unrelenting counter suit against a Snohomish County individual and a minimum of six of this individual’s well known supporters/associates/sycophants who have been involved with this individual over an extended period of time in efforts clearly designed to damage our business.

$600,000 in damages will be sought from each defendant for a variety of documented, planned, coordinated long term attacks that have violated the civil rights of, and severely damaged in numerous ways individuals associated with the business and the business enterprise itself as a result of ongoing, organized business and individual harassment as well as business interference and contractual interference, to name just a few offenses that have damaged this company and individuals associated with it.

Illegal actions that have resulted in a loss of business and personal income, damage to stature and reputation in the community, future earnings and other damages.

It is also our intent to extend an offer to other individuals in the greater community, and there appear to be many, who feel they too have been harmed in numerous ways by this same ongoing, coordinated group conspiracy of harassment, intimidation, business interference and character assassination to join us in our quest for justice.

Suggest you advise associates of what may be forthcoming in their lives. Would be unfair to these individuals to first learn of this from a process server while mowing their lawn on a weekend or while at work on a Friday afternoon.

No need to respond to this for no further response on this matter will be forthcoming.
Have a nice day.

King County Judge, Snohomish County’s inactions in Oso Mudslides may be negligent, case set for trial

UPDATE: A source from Snohomish County confirmed that John E. Pennington is the true owner of the Sky Valley Chronicle. An online news paper being sued for criminal cyber-stalking, defamation, racketeering, bribery, fraud, 1983 violations, in Block v WSBA, at el.

On Friday October 29, 2016, another reporter contacted the Gold Bar Reporter with “forged,  altered documents, perjury and filing false instruments with the Court”.  John E. Pennington placed into a Pierce County case attempting to SLAPP down our message about his pedophilia and abuse against women. Criminal complaints are being pursued against John Pennington and he will be formally charged in November.

 

Snohomish County’s relationship with the Stillaguamish Tribes is worsening as Prosecutor Mark Roe and Washington State attorney General’s office try to shift financial responsibility away from convicted criminal harasser, former political appointee John E. Pennington.

Pedophile

In 2014 when 43 residents in the Oso mudslide disaster suffocated to death, John Pennington was in charge.

Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers terminated John E. Pennington in January 2016 after the voters overwhelmingly sent John Lovick packing. But not soon enough; 43 people in Washington State’s most preventable loss of life natural disaster suffocated to death because of John Lovick and John Pennington’s gross failures of  catastrophic magnitude.


Oso Mudslide Trial set for September 2016

 

The Gold Bar Reporters will be in the courtroom with video cameras in hand for the upcoming Oso mudslide trial and testimony of John E. Pennington, former Director of Emergency Management.  A political appointee of disgraced former Executive Aaron Reardon.  Reardon resigned soon after the Gold Bar Reporter’s articles exposed Reardon for misappropriation of public funds to fund two affairs with county employees.

Public records reveal that instead of doing his job, John Pennington criminally harassed citizens on the County’s dime operating a blog titled ‘ The Sky Valley Chronicle.”

Additional public records document that Pennington was convicted in Lake Oswego Oregon for violently beating his ex fiancé in 1991.  As a result, John Pennington fled Oregon.

There are thirty nine victims, and their estates suing the state, Snohomish County and logging company Grandy Lake Forest Associates for wrongful death. Instead of resolution, Washington State Attorney General’s Office and Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe try to shift blame to the Stillaguamish Tribe  last month claiming that an agreement shifts liability to the tribes.

“The Tribe’s official records demonstrate that the Tribe’s Board of Directors passed no resolution delegating authority to anyone to sign the Agreement on the Tribe’s behalf,” the complaint says. “There is no evidence of the Board ever considering the Agreement at all. Without a Board resolution approving the Agreement or authorizing anyone to sign it on the Tribe’s behalf … the Tribe could not have waived its inherent sovereign immunity for claims arising out of the Agreement,” a spokesman for the Tribes said.

According to an insider, Pierce College in Tacoma Washington hired John Pennington to  cover up the fact that Pennington remained unemployed, a ploy to fool the jury.  ‘Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Attorney General’s Office sat around for hours talking about how Pennington’s being unemployed would look to the average juror. Bob made a few phone calls and managed to get Pennington a temporary political appointment,” the insider told the Gold Bar Reporter yesterday.

John E. Pennington is being sued for racketeering in US Federal Court in Seattle, with a new one in Connecticut State Court. Pennington’s depositions are expected to begin early in 2017.

We wish the Stillaguamish Tribes well, and hope they are successful on stopping abusive bullying by Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and his criminal racketeering organization up here in Snohomish County, also know as Snohomish County Prosecutors.

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 John Pennington meets his next victim.

Mr. Pennington plead guilty to criminal assault 1 and harassment  and his ex-finance sued him to recover damages ( Washington County Case # D911027SC) after he hospitalized her Oregon. A felony record, Senator Dunn helped hide from the public eye.

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.

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 of a real college for raping a student.

 

 

 

 

Spokane County Superior Court Judges on drugs?

annetteplese_young_kwak

In April 2015, I called Spokane County Superior Court Judge Annette Plese ( above) after a mother from Spokane County named Jill Fleck contacted the Gold Bar Reporter with a horrific story about an extortion and bribery scheme involving Spokane attorneys Susan Embree, Judge Annette Plese and Commisoner Anderson.

The source even stated that during her custody trial, Judge Plese called her a whore. A matter of public record. Now I’ve heard some really strange stories from my readers about judges in corrupt Washington over the last nine years, but this had to take the cake.

I’d like my readers to know I’ve spent the last twelve months investigating before publishing, sorting and sifting through hundreds of Spokane County files, to state that our entire judiciary should hold up signs saying “ For sale to highest bidder, but if you’re poor, you’re out of luck, and your kids stolen and handed over to criminals who are drug dealers and wife and child abusers who lander money to pay off the judges.”

The source, an abused, but quite sane mother of two , Jill Fleck, who just like pedophile and wife beater John E. Pennington’s ex wives here in Snohomish County, lost custody of children to a criminal.  In Ms Fleck’s case, Judge Annette Plese ( who with no surprise is also a personal and dear friend to corrupt Washington State Homophobic Supreme Court Justice Barabara Madsen) knowingly gave custody of Ms Fleck’s children to a convicted drug dealing car thief, and wife and child abuser, Charles Fleck.

At the time Judge Annette Plese gave custody of Jill Fleck’s two minor children to a felon druggie, Ms Fleck’s only crime was shoplifting when she was younger.  Since that time Judge Plese and Susan Embree have misused their political influence to have Ms Fleck charged with receiving stolen goods, a case that was just tossed out by the Court of Appeals. Why?  Thank RCW 42.56, the Public Recrods Act.

Discovered in public emails three weeks ago, Spokane County Detective Stacey Carr lied on the stand and was caught forging a police report. Why, as a political favor to shut Jill Fleck up about the corruption involving a pay off system in Spokane County Superior Court. Clear racketeering.

Ms Fleck’s ex Charles Fleck was convicted of stealing cars and transporting them across state lines for the purpose of supporting his car- chop- shopping and drug businesses.  A business Charles Fleck ran on EBay until he was chatsized by a Montana federal court judge for lying on his financial indigency forms obtaining a public defender on false pretenses.

Mr Fleck’s criminal activity was captured on video by a good Samaritan and  confirms beyond any shadow o a doubt that Charles Fleck was transporting stolen cars from Monatana to his home in Spokane.  Charles Fleck plead guilty to felony charges in US federal court, Great Falls Montana.

However, Charles Fleck didn’t commit his crimes against society alone.  Mr Fleck has had the assistance of attorney Susan Embree, a twice convicted drunk driver whose Facebook pictures look more like a thug running for the Mafia than that of an attorney; she also has extensive federal tax liens and refused to file her federal income tax returns. So much so that Embree was sued in US federal Court by the IRS and the Washington Attorney General. Ms Embree is a stellar  convicted criminal with a WA State Bar license.

Since 2010, attorney Susan Embree braggs that she had the fix in with Spokane Superior Court judges and stalks Ms Fleck on a regular basis.  When she enters the court, Ms Embree reeks of booze and files frivolous motion after frivolous motion always with the same judges and one specific Commisioner Rachelle Anderson ( Spokane).

Up until recently, Ms Embree shared an office at 1312 Monroe St Spokane Washington with another criminal, attorney Lin O’Dell.

Ms. O’Dell was caught stealing thousands of dollars from an ATM cash machine of  a former client. More on O’Dell soon but for those of my readers who are not familiar with O’Dell she’s the one who was accepting financial bribes from terminated/ disgraced Snohomish County employee John E. Pennington.  Pennington is also the man who killed 43 people in the Snohomish County Oso mudslides.

In 2016 the Honorable Justice Alex Kozonski issued a scathing opinion in the Joshua Frist case involving government misconduct.  Sadly, Jill Fleck’s case uncovered a pay off system inside Spokane County Superior Courts using drugs , stolen cars, and a dangerous convicted felon, Charles Fleck from Spokane.

In 2010, Jill Fleck’s attorney suggested to her that if she could come up with $60,000.00 Judge Plese would give back custody of her two children. The attorney knew that Jill Fleck’s relative was a sports star.

Recently I contacted Judge Plese asking her for comment as to a series of stories coming as it relates to her decision to give custody to a violent convicted felon named Charles Fleck and in his live in girlfriend ( whose live in daughter was recently charged with aiding criminal assistance to a Spokane County murderer who with no surprise goes on trial in Judge Plese’s courtroom in Januar y 2017).

Judge Plese spoke to the Gold Bar Reporter for an hour sounding more like a drug addict than that of a member of the judiciary.  Judge Plese acted like she knew nothing of Charles Felck’s extensive criminal history of assaulting women and children ( CPS records coming Soon) , drug trafficking and his chop shopping federal conviction from Montana even though public records confirm judge Plese knew of Fleck’s extensive criminal history since 2011 and prior to awarding him custody of Jill Fleck’s kids.

Attorney Susan Embree and Commsioner Anderson refused comment, but public records  are clear that a violent convicted criminal was given custody because he was able to meet the pay off demand. Something Jill Fleck could not do because she is poor.

I’d like my readers to know this story is just the open brief in a series of articles (with public records ) I intend to post over the next three weeks so stay tuned. I promise a good read that supports a criminal racketeering investigation of Spokane County Judge Annette Plese, Commisoner Rachelle Anderson and attorney Susan Embree.  So much so that I am asking for Honorbale Justice Kozinski to send the Natuonal Guard to protect Washingtonians  from the criminals who have hijacked our government.

My source suggested that attorney Susan Embree’s convicted drug dealing felon son might kill me, and if I turn up dead, let it be known who is responsible.  However, for those of you honest police officers reading this, you might note that Ms. Embree’s son has a warrant for his arrest.  But be careful when approaching Susan Embree’s house as it looks more like a junk yard or drug dealer than that of an attorney.

One last fact:  Judge Plese and Commissioner Rachelle Anderson are not totally without a heart, they did allow Jill Fleck supervised visitation.
