Tan Nguyen, Republican candidate for the 47th Congressional District, is seen in the below photographs mingling with House Speaker Dennis Hastert and National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Reynolds. Nguyen is currently under investigation by the California State Attorney General's Office, U.S. Department of Justice, FBI, and other law enforcement agencies for allegedly sending out more than 14,000 letters to mostly-Mexican familes in the 47th Congressional District threatening all "immigrants" with jail or deportation if they voted.

DA declines to file criminal charges against Coyotl Tezcatlipoca! (tags)
Asked why no charges are being filed, Schroeder said, "We refused it [the charges] in the interests of justice," but she would not elaborate.
Council minutes show Coyotl was cut off two minutes before 7 pm (tags)
The minutes of the January 3rd meeting of the Costa Mesa City Council were recently posted online by the City Clerk. Not only do they state the meeting began at 6:00 pm, but they record that Mayor Allan Mansoor declared a "recess" at 6:58 pm. This confirms what investigative journalist John Earl, myself, and others have been saying all along: that Mansoor abruptly cut off Coyotl Tezcatlipoca about 40 seconds before his time was up and he did it roughly two minutes before the 7:00 pm "deadline."
Letter to the editor about Costa Mesa Mayor (tags)
"Before Tezcalipoca's speaking time expired, the mayor suspended the meeting and said or did things that by prearrangement caused the police to move in on Tezcalipoca. While Tezcalipoca was telling the officers who had surrounded him that he would leave on his own and that he did not want them to touch him, they grabbed him around the neck and forcibly removed him from the council chambers." -- Chris Blank

OC activist receives an email from an anonymous stalker (tags)
It looks like the articles I've been writing about Theresa Dang's case that I've been posting all over the internet have struck a very raw nerve with deep inside the Garden Grove Police Department, Orange County District Attorney's Office, and the folks who run Garden Grove City Hall. Someone in power apparently is very disturbed about what I have done.
Theresa Dang acquitted of all criminal charges (tags)
“The jury realized this case had nothing to do with a lost flashlight,” said Duane J. Roberts, one of the organizers of the May 25th counterdemonstration. “They saw that this was a politically-motivated charge brought forth by the Garden Grove Police Department against Dang for exercising her constitutional rights of free speech and assembly."

Garden Grove Police launch smear campaign against anti-Minutemen protesters (tags)
I wonder how Lt. Handfield would have tried to spin this story if Lafferty had been crushed to death? California state law doesn't give persons driving 3,000 lb. minivans the right to roll over pedestrians, does it?
Garden Grove Police launching smear campaign against May 25th protesters hit by Netkin? (tags)
The real question that people need to ask now is this: Is it the policy of the Garden Grove Police to smear people who have been struck by automobiles? Do they smear people who have been involved in other kinds of accidents, as well? Does Lt. Handfield have qualifications to diagnose people's injuries based on what he sees on videotape? I thought his job was to fight crime?

After ignoring me for days, the Garden Grove Police Department had now decided they wanted to talk. Wanna bet something printed in The Los Angeles Times over the weekend spurred their newfound interest in communicating with me?

It looks like Cruz "Joe Lieberman for President" Bustamante has found a very slimy way to use the millions of dollars in dirty money he's been raking in from the casino interests here in California.
Vote "NO" on Proposition 54 (tags)
Since Proposition 54's passage will make it much more difficult to fight and attack all forms of racism, segregation, and discrimination in general, I think we should call it for what it truly is: the Institutionalized Racism Protection Act of 2003.
