Washington Court of Appeals Div. I Judge Beth Andrus fixing cases for her friends in Snohomish County Oso Mudslide litigation

On March 22, 2014, one of the largest landslide in United States history occurred 4 miles (6.4 km) east of Oso, Washington.

Public records sent from Court of Appeals Judge Beth Andrus email account judgeandrus@gmail.com documents that she was a good friend to Snohomish County’s Oso Defense attorneys Joseph Genster and Timothy Leyh:

FW_ Save the Date !

Why this email is so important to illustrate case fixing is because Judge Beth Andrus was also the Judge at Washington Court of Appeals Division One who DENIED the Oso mudslide victims their day in court.  Judge Andrus fixed the case in favor of Snohomish County Prosecutors Joseph Genster and Timothy Leyh, her friends and the County attorneys on this appeal.

Judge Beth Andrus, a dear friend to  Snohomish County Prosecutors Joseph Genster and Timothy Leyh, signed in the bottom left hand corner of the Decision to Dismiss victims of the Oso mudslides against her dear friend from Snohomish County Prosecutors Office. Joseph Genster and Timothy Leyh were in fact the attorneys of record representing Snohomish County.

If this is not case fixing and gross violations of the Cannon Rules of Judicial Conduct, we are not sure what is.

Judge Beth Andrus should be brought up on racketeering charges and impeached with all deliberate speed.

For years  Snohomish County’s geologists urged the County’s Department of Emergency Management to purchase homes already built and move resident off the slide, correcting holding that the area was unstable and a major slide area.  FEMA offered funding to buy out home owners.

Instead of buying out property owners, Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon wrote an email letter to one of his political appointee’s John E Pennington asking “is it safe to build?” John E Pennington wrote back ” Its good to build boss.”

John E. Pennington was a two term Washington State Representative from Cowlitz County Washington.  He was also diagnosed by King County Superior Court Dr. Hedricks as “a sociopath with no empathy for human life” and he was diagnosed with autism.

If having the Director of Snohomish County Emergency Management labeled a sociopath with autism isn’t bad enough, keep reading.

According to lead Cowlitz County Detective Maurice Saxon, John E. Pennington was also the man responsible for the rape, kidnapping,  and attempted murder of a 5 year old girl in Cowltiz County in 1992.

At the time John E Pennington was the person responsible for raping,  kidnapping,  and attempted murder of a five year old girl, he was also running for an uncontested Washington State House of Representative’s seat.

At the time of the child rape, Gold Bar’s city attorney Michael Kenyon was the City of Kelso’s attorney.

When John E Pennington and Mike Kenyon covered up the rape of a child, Michael Kenyon’s career skyrocketed. Kenyon went from an anal salary of $37,500 per year as a city attorney to a million year, only after Senator Jennifer Dunn  jumped started Kenyon’s career at the bequest of John E. Pennington.

John E Pennington said ” I owe Jennifer Dunn my career…” What Pennington left off was that Mike Kenyon also owes Senator Jennifer Dunn his career.

When the Gold Bar Reporter requested access to public records here in Gold Bar, involving John E Pennington’s then mistress and Gold Bar’s then Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg convicted of bank fraud, 2000, 2005), attorney Mike Kenyon, John E Pennington’s fixer, was hired by Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe ” Felon” Beavers to tampering with public emails disseminated inside Gold Bar’s public emails.  Those emails contained illegally obtained information from the FBI about the Gold Bar Reporter’s family, including major HIPPA violations.

And so the 10 year public records litigation began… and what just learned is that the City of Gold Bar has been lying to Gold Bar residents about who is paying the legal bills posted on the City’s website. A story for a later dates, but for those of you who wondered, it’s Washington State attorney General Bob Ferguson Office. A story we are working on for a little later date. Stay tuned.

 

 

Two years after the Oso mudslides, John E Pennington was deposed, and his response to what he considered his responsibilities to be are nicely illustrated in his videotaped deposition when he states countless times ” I was just the Director, I just directed.” 


According to the Seattle Times, John E Pennington paid a flat rate fee for his online fraudulent diploma, from California Coastal University.  Pennington used his online flat rate diploma to obtain another online degree from American Military University, a online school US Senator Harkin said was fraud on PBS’s special “Education Inc.”

This begs one question: Had the County hired a person qualified to handle Emergencies could Oso Mudslides been mitigated? The Gold Bar Reporter believes so.

Since the Hazel Landslide has a history of instability dating to 1937, this prior to the March 2014 mudslide, the FEMA plans to buy out the homeowners in 2006 would have eliminated the human causalities.

“Completely unforeseen”

On March 24, two days after the slide, John Pennington, Director of Snohomish County’s Department of Emergency Management, stated at a news conference, “This was a completely unforeseen slide. This came out of nowhere.”[28] The same day The Seattle Times published an article about previous slides at the same location, as well as the likelihood of future slides. The article contained comments from geologists, engineers, and local residents, and stated that the area was known among locals as “Slide Hill”. On the next day, The Times followed up with a full page article, “‘Unforeseen’ risk of slide? Warnings go back decades.”Snohomish County Public Works Director Steve Thompsen was quoted as saying, “A slide of this magnitude is very difficult to predict. There was no indication, no indication at all.” ‘

John E. Pennington also told Time Magazine the same week ” Everyone knew of the dangers.”

The Gold Bar Reporter since early January 2009, tried to warn the public that John E. Pennington was dangerous man ( arrested for beating a 3rd trimester pregnant City of Duvall Council Member just weeks before delivering her child), and had criminally harassed the Gold Bar Reporter using an anonymous website Washington State Senator Steve Hobbs, and several Snohomish County Executive employees operated from Snohomish County offices, titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”

Countless criminal complaints were filed against John E Pennington from 2009 to 2017, but each time a criminal complaint was filed, then Sheriff John Lovick ( now WA State House of Rep for Mill Creek) would always intercept and quash the criminal complaints.

We would later learn that John Lovick was accused of sexual abusing a minor child in his care , caught masturbating along side her bed, inside his daughter’s room in the 1990s. John Lovick later paid off the victim to remain silent, and has since been lying to his constituents that the allegations are not true.

My mother always said ” the only ones who protect pedophiles, are pedophiles themselves.”  That’s exactly what John Lovick did, he protected John E Pennington from being criminally prosecuted on over 15 criminal complaints that were filed by several woman, and this after King County issued a restraining order against John E Pennington, they revoked his concealed weapons permit. While a King County restraining order was issued, John Lovick illegally granted Pennington back ( persons with domestic violence and mental health issues are NOT allowed to have weapons) a concealed weapons permit. Since Pennington did not live in Snohomish County – he actuall resides in Duvall, King County – Lovick had no authority to sign Pennington’s concealed weapons permit.

 

When Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon learned that John E Pennington tried to rape his public records officer inside Snohomish County Dept of Emergency Management, Aaron  Reardon called her in to his office and promised her promotions and issued a very large settlement check of $45,000.00, which we later learned the victim used to enlarge her breasts.  She is now Director of Emergency Management for the City of Marysville.

In May 2013, Snohomish County’s Municipal Unit “voted” to order then Municipal Unit and Snohomish County Prosecutor Margaret King to assist John Pennington with  getting Anne Block disbarred for exposing corruption.

A source inside Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, who we label “Fed Up” told the Gold Bar Reporter that ” Mark Roe and Mike Kenyon conspired with the county council to have you disbarred for reporting on their racketeering conduct. Margaret King was removed as Gold Bar’s City attorney, and moved to Snohomish County to assist the county with getting you disbarred.”

What our readers may not know is that from 2010 to February 2012, attorney Margaret King assisted in two Washington State Bar complaints.  What King and other complained about was that lawyers shouldn’t also be reporters.  The Gold Bar Reporter told the Washington State Bar Association ” stay out of my First Amendment activities.” The actions of the Enterprise cleared the way for the Reporter to dedicate more time to writing.

Forty-three people were killed and 49 homes and other structures destroyed. This was unacceptable from persons who were sworn in to uphold the laws, but as in the case of now terminated Director of Emergency Management John E Pennington, spent county monies and resources criminally harassing his opponents on a fake website The Sky Valley Chronicle. A website, Pennington, his convicted bank frauding wife Crystal D. Pennington (aka Berg, Hill), Snohomish County Prosecutors and Executive Officers used to defame and cyber-stalk anyone who dared challenge government sociopaths.

We blame the Washington State Bar Association for attempting to SLAPP down my First Amendment rights to protect a wife beater, a pedophile, and man who caused 43 deaths in Oso mudslides, because instead of working, he was performing FEMA contracts on the east in violation of Snohomish County Ordinance and criminally harassing his opponent right from County DEM offices.

Snohomish County employee who killed 43 in Oso mudslides deposed

It was a beautiful day in Olympia today, sunny, and in the high 70s. I love Olympia, and always find the city quite calming, and disturbing all in the same emotion . I woke up around 5 am and started the two hour  drive to Olympia. My purpose was to retrieve public records from the Washington Attorney General’s Office  (AG) and Department of Natural Resources (DNR), two agencies that probably wish they never heard of John E. Pennington.

After a friend suggested that I sue Ron Fejfar and the Sky Valley Chronicle for “deceptive trade practices” the first step was to understand why and how he set up the Sky Valley Chronicle with the Secretary of State.

I’ve never been so eager to retrieve records of any other people on this planet. It’s been a long time coming for  John Pennington to be brought to justice not only for killing 43 people in the Oso mudslides, but also to face justice, and perhaps criminal charges for perjury ( WA Court Rules allows citizens to file criminal charges aside from our corrupt Sheriff’s Office), and for his crimes against humans. Humans a doctor in John Pennington’s King County divorce case ( Laughlin v Pennington) deemed  to be a   “sociopath with no empathy for humans.”

I drove my VW beetle, a light blue powder puffy looking dune buggy, just as powder blue as the sky lingering over the Port of Olympia today. Most days here are rainy, cold and dreary just like the politicians who allowed a sociopathic child molester and wife beater to harm so many before one honest politician named Dave Somers finally said  “You’re fired! ”

Most of the morning, we spent searching and sifting through Washington State records trying to understand why a man from Sultan Washington named Ron Fejfar would start an   “advertising sales” company, then commit deceptive trade violations and allow several Snohomish County employees, John Pennington, Crystal Hill Pennington, Joe Beavers, Aaron Reardon, Kevin Thomas Hulten to post attack pieces amounting to defamation and violations of Washington deceptive trade laws.

The way Ron Fejfar set up the Sky Valley Chronicle will allow us to sue him for defamation and deceptive trade practices and a complaint will be filed soon. But from Ron Fefjar’s filings in Olympia, its clear that he made false statements and loss any claim he may have thought he had for media shield.  Stupid is as stupid does.

The bigger news story came two weeks ago. A source inside the AG’s office called and said   “Pennington was deposed and Kathy Bodnar is chuckling that you had just asked for his deposition from AG’s Office and she claimed that’s she under no obligation to provide an update to you that he was deposed. So go ask for that record.”

Prior to John E. Pennington killing so many people here in Washington, I have spent ten years of my life trying to warn the public of just how dangerous John E. Pennington is, but only after my investigation unearthed  Pennington’s past criminal history, including molesting children, rape of a five year old Cowlitz County child, and consistent and continuous criminal harassment likened to Theodore Ted Bundy. A killer, a women hater, and a sociopath not worth housing.

For those of you who live inside the “Killing Fields of Highway 2″ know Ted Bundy well, since Baker National Forest was Bundy’s favorite dumping site for women he deemed  valueless. Bundy’s victims were not valueless, they were someone’s children, some were someone’s mother, and not put on this planet so a sociopath can masturbate over his sick fetish of harming women.

Next, I decided why not go see AG public records officer Ms. Bodnar and DNR records officer in person. Nothing like a little face to face conversation about big news stories up here in Snohomish County.

As I approached the DNR offices, I was shocked to see public offices ( offices paid for our tax monies) in “lock down” as though it was prison, not a government agency.  What’s happen to my America; a government agency whose primary purpose should be to serve “we the people” is operating more like a prison.

Badge check, first stop. Second stop, badge check on the elevator. Third stop, badge reader to the public door to reach the public desk. Forth stop, a helpful public servant who managed  to find someone who answers public records request. Finally, a public officer named Ann who looked stone cold and shaking like a tree during a hurricane.

The public records officer from DNR admitted that the AG’s had taken John Pennington’s deposition in March 2016, and did in fact have a copy of his deposition.  Since the DNR offices are right next door to the AG’s Office, I thought I’d pay a visit to our favorite agency public records officer, Kathy Bodnar.

Ms. Bodnar’s behavior is likened to a close Third Reich Officer’s allegiance to Adolf Hitler than that of a Washington State public servant. Her demeanor and arrogance of her position as a person entrusted to apply our sunshine laws was quite disgraceful.  A topic for another day.

On March 2, 2016, I requested a copy of any record relating to John E. Pennington’s deposition, which I hear also includes a video.   The public has a right to know that instead of doing his job ( mitigation),  John Pennington sat around hacking into others computer systems, spent many hours blogging defamatory stories about his opponents, criminal assaulting women and children, using county resources to advance his fraudulent online degrees from an online diploma mill Senator Harkin called fraud, and illegally used our resources to advance his private for profit company “Education Services” located in Duvall Washington ( a company Pennington made at least $175,000.00 from but has yet to pay a single cent of Washington Business tax on), the sole person responsible for the deaths of  43 people in the Oso mudslides, and illegally using his Homeland Security Clearance to criminally rape and harass citizens he didn’t like. Unfortunately for the DNR it ignored my records request for over one month.

Rule number one: when an agency refuses to provide a response to a very simple records request, you know the records they’re withholding must be worth seeing.  From what I hear the video deposition is worth a million bucks.

But its not for sale, its a public record, and I intend to post and disseminate far and wide, making sure this man never harms another woman or child without notice to the public.

John Pennington’s days of staying under the radar are gone, but sadly he killed 43 people before being tossed to the curb as the piece of trash he is.  RCW 42.56 ensures that the public are the checks and balances to a clean and honest government.

The Gold Bar Reporter does Olympia, with more personal appearances likely.  More on Pennington’s deposition soon

 

 

 

Snohomish County’s thug Mark Ericks resigns amid threats to harm and ethnic slurs about Arabs

180764_dbdac4eea9aa2bd7339c240a3bd44322_large

One pig down, four more to go!

Ericks

Mark Ericks, Deputy Director resigns after its clear that Snohomish County political bums Mark Ericks and John Pennington cost John Lovick his job as Snohomish County Executive.  Gold Bar Reporters predict council member Dave Somers will be Snohomish County’s next Executive


On December 10, 2015 the Gold Bar Reporters published the following article:

“Who let the pigs out?”

Instead of asshole John Lovick riding the County of Reardon’s pedophiles like John Pennington, and religious nuts like Chris Schwartzen (who spends most of his county time viewing porno sites inside public works), John Lovick did what any dumb as a post politician would do, he keep the criminals on the county payroll.

And now, John Lovick keeps another criminal aboard, Mark Ericks.  Last week, Mark Ericks made us all proud when he threatened to ” shoot” and ” kill”  county council member Dave Somers.

Mark Ericks was an uneducated bum who was forced to resign as U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Washington after allegations of sex discrimination was lodged against him by a female co-worker.

According to Noah Haglund from the Snohomish County Daily Herald in 2013 ” There’s a new atmosphere, a new set of priorities, and new faces in key jobs. “The staff has really appreciated all of John and Mark’s efforts to get to know all of the departments,” County Council Chairwoman Stephanie Wright said.

Perhaps Ms. Wright is snorting oxycodone with former Snohomish County Director John Pennington, or perhaps she’s as stupid as post as is Executive John Lovick.

Unlike Aaron Reardon, John Lovick appears to show up to the County Council meetings, but according to council member Dave Somers Mark Ericks can’t seem to leave his US Marshall threats to kill and shoot people outside of the County walls.

Our sources stated ” Mark Ericks and John Lovick were violating the public trust by misusing the Courthouse monies that the voters put aside for the new justice center, and Dave Somers called Ericks and Lovick out on the carpet for misappropriation of taxpayer monies. Ericks starting throwing pencils, a book, and a cell phone at Dave Somers telling Dave that he would KILL and SHOOT him. The threats were real and hostile. I believe Dave fears for his life. ”

Today Dave Somers hired an independent attorney to investigate Mark Ericks threats to kill and shoot him, while threats to harm the Gold Bar Reporters by John E. Pennington and his mistress Crystal Hill,  also known to Seattleites’ as Gold Bar’s ” Boob Flashing Mayor at Bubba’s Roadhouse” where Crystal Hill enjoys tips for stripping and dancing on tables in front of old men.

Late this summer, former Executive Director Gary Haackenson resigned, and one can only speculate that Mark Ericks was also threatening to kill and shoot  Haacksenson.

We rightfully Gold Bar Reporters call John Lovick the ” Uncle Tom” he is, and now we rightfully call Mark Ericks a thug, also fits right in with his former job title as a US Marshall.

“When’s scum, always scum.”   2015 is Dave time!


Mark Ericks resignation is just one more pig forced to resign after public records from Snohomish County linked Mark Ericks to racial and ethics anti-Arab slurs and emails mocking the Tulip Tribes.

Snohomish County residents can rest a little easier knowing that one more of Aaron Reardon’s left over bag of trash resigned today. However, there are three more pigs still on Snohomish County’s welfare system that must be removed from our welfare system, including John E. Pennington, Brian Parry and John Lovick before their criminal conduct bankrupts Snohomish County.

PedophileJohn-Lovick

Two pigs left over from Aaron Reardon’s administration,

John E. Pennington and soon to be former Executive John Lovick ( dumb as a post)
