ANOTHER ONE: BLACKS BRUTALLY ATTACK WHITE KID

Do you suppose they'll be charged with a hate crime if they're caught?  Of course not.

Reverse the races and this would be front page news all across this country and the Good Whites (read, weak seeds) would be holding tear filled stop the hate candle light marches.

Reject the Good Whites, folks.  They are ignorant weak seeds who are incapable of seeing patterns even when they are plain to see.  Follow the Good Whites and you or yours may become victims.

PYTHONS TURNING OUT TO BE THE MOST FIT FOR THE EVERGLADES

The only constant in existence is change.  This is because existence is not static.  Everything is moving.  Movement brings change. Change brings evolution.

In the above story you'll read that pythons are apparently wiping out many mammals in the Everglades.

The reason the pythons are winning the battle for survival is because they are apparently better adapted to the Everglades than the mammals that they're eating.  This is just the normal process of evolution which constantly tinkers with life to bring forth the most fit for every niche.

The lesson in this is that the animals that are being replaced will have to adapt to survive and prosper or be fully replaced.  There's no free ride in nature and there's always competition.

BLACKS ATTACK WHITE CABBIE AND PASSENGER AND YELL RACIAL INSULTS AT BOTH

Cops aren't sure hate crime charges will be filed.  Yup, that's what it says in the news article. 

Are you catching on yet to the double standard? A White person can frown at a Black person and the White person will be charged with a hate crime, but Blacks can attack Whites and use racial hate terms and no hate crime charges will be filed.  This is happening all over the U.S. and even in Europe right now.

The establishment tries to hide all these attacks on Whites and the racial motives for them, and when the race of the attackers and the victims are revealed, then the establishment tries to localize the stories so only those in the local area will read about them.

Fortunately, Drudge and a few other news sources are now publishing the reports of these anti-White attacks to a wider audience and getting the truth out.  But, even then, the racial attacks on Whites that you see on Drudge are only a very small percentage of such attacks that happen every day in this country.

The truth will help protect you.

COSTA MESA'S TOP PENSION RECIPIENTS

Click on the above to see what prior City Councils were doing when they were behind closed doors. 

You may remember some of those former City Councilmembers.  They were the ones that the CM PRESS used to criticize for simply sitting on the dais and smiling like idiots while scracthing their behinds and rubber stamping whatever was put in front of them.

After looking at the above list can you believe that Goslow Wendy and her Goslow Zombies are still criticizing the Good Councilmembers who are now trying to save ordinary Costa Mesa citizens some of their hard earned tax money instead of sending us to the poor house to pay huge pensions to many people who don't even live in Costa Mesa?

Folks, instead of the Good Councilmembers receiving smears, they should be receiving medals for trying to get Costa Mesa back on the right track.

The scumbags who are criticizing the Good Councilmembers need to be challenged every time they pop their microcephalic heads out from under the rocks where they live with all the other loathsome creatures.

CITY IS CIRCLING THE DRAIN?

Here's a comment from Karin W. Ahlf that follows THIS COLUMN in the Daily Pilot by Crissy Brooks that we wrote about the other day


kwahlf at 8:52 AM January 27, 2012



Thank you, Crissy for this excellent commentary. Our city is circling the drain and it's up to us to save it. I hope our community realizes this. It's time to wake up, fellow Costa Mesans!

 Ms. Ahlf, in addition to being a frequent critic of the Good Councilmembers, is the mother of  Karl Ahlf who ran unsuccessfully for the Costa Mesa City Council a few years ago.

We're not sure what upsets Ms. Ahlf about the Good Councilmembers, and just saying that the city is
"circling the drain," gives us absolutely no clues whatsoever. 

Is she upset because the Good Councilmembers are improving the city and the quality of life of the residents?

Is she upset because the Good Councilmembers are right-sizing the government to save taxpayers money?

Is she upset because the Good Councilmembers want to take control of our city away from Sacramento and put it in the hands of Costa Mesans?

Perhaps Ms. Ahlf can enlighten us. Send us your comments Ms. Ahlf and if they have more than just meaningless catch phrases such as "circling the drain," we may publish them.

SUITS AT CITY HALL VOLUNTEER TO PAY MORE OF THEIR OWN RETIREMENT

The top leaders for the City of Costa Mesa have volunteered to pay 39% of their pension costs—the highest rate possible—saying they need to set the example of contributing their full retirement share to help insure the city’s finances are sustainable. The employee contribution will be one of the highest in California for public workers.

The move to increase pension contributions will affect eight city executives, including Chief Executive Officer Tom Hatch, Assist. Chief Executive Officer Rick Francis, Economic Development Director Peter Naghavi, Police Chief Tom Gazsi, Finance Director Bobby Young, interim Public Services Director Ernesto Munoz, and interim Development Services Director Khanh Nguyen.

Interim Fire Chief Tom Arnold is not paying into the retirement system and will be unaffected, but his successor will pay his or her full pension share.

The estimated annual taxpayer savings from the increase contributions, including the fire chief’s share, is more than $50,000.

Non-public safety executives are currently paying 31.49% their pension costs. The contribution increase will go into effect as soon as it’s approved by the City Council, likely at its Feb. 7 meeting.

Police Chief Gazsi currently pays 11.61% of his pension costs (as do other Costa Mesa police officers), with the City picking up the remaining 88.39%. Police officers are allowed to pick up 48.633% of the cost of their pensions. Gazsi and CEO Hatch are currently working on a plan to move the police chief toward this maximum contribution level.

It is not known if the rank and file police officers will agree to pay their fair share of their pension costs as the Chief is apparently going to do or whether they'll demand that citizens continue to pay 88.9% towards their retirement.

When hired, the new fire chief will immediately begin paying 49.32% of the cost of his or her pension, if the City Council approves the increase in employee contributions. Currently, the fire chief would be paying 12.92% of his pension costs, with the City would be picking up the remaining 87.08%).

Recently, due to an expired clause of a labor agreement, Costa Mesa firefighters (excluding battalion chiefs) dropped from paying 12.92% of their pension costs to paying 2.15%. The City now pays 97.85%. In real terms, the firefighters now pay $103,000 annually to their pensions, and the city pays $4.7 million.

In recent negotiations, the City has asked the firefighters to pay the 29.92% of their pension costs.

A question that remains in the minds of many citizens is whether or not Costa Mesa will outsource its fire fighting to the County  if  Costa Mesa firefighters balk at paying their fair share toward their own pensions.

But...all somethings are not the same and sometimes doing nothing is better than the wrong somethings.

That is, we like Crissy's use of the language about "doing something," instead of "doing nothing." 

However, and unfortunately, Crissy's particular something is probably the wrong something and doing nothing rather than her something would probably be better for the Westside.

We explain: One of Crissy's somethings always seems to involve helping suspected illegal aliens feel comfortable on the Westside and another of her somethings seems to be to want to keep parts of the Westside as ethnic ghettos instead of letting them seek their own level--which, being close to Newport Beach and the ocean, is a higher something than Crissy's something.

LAGUNA HILLS OFFERS SOME TIPS FOR THE WESTSIDE OF COSTA MESA

The above linked story is probably boring to most folks, but anyone interested in how the real world works and how cities improve themselves, with public/private cooperation, might want to read the whole article.

A couple of things jumped out at us in the article as we think about improving the Westside: "[R]enovating existing shops in a California Coastal Style," and "upscale market."

For some reason, successive Costa Mesa Planning Commissions and City Councils have promoted the California Mission Style in our city.  We think it's a mistake and we think it's dated and sleepy.

We think we need more modern California Coastal Style buildings with strong industrial elements--especially on the Westside, and we'd like to see this encouraged.

And as far as "upscale market" goes, that speaks for itself. But just in case it doesn't, think: "bees are attracted to honey."

From a reader...

MARINES SET UP A DEFENSIVE PERIMETER JUST LIKE THEY'RE TRAINED TO DO BUT WITH A SLIGHT TWIST


This is little-known story from the Pentagon on 09/11/2001:

 During a visit with a fellow chaplain, who happened to be assigned
to the Pentagon, I had a chance to hear a first-hand account of an
incident that happened right after Flight 77 hit the Pentagon.

The chaplain told me what happened at a daycare center near where
the impact occurred. This daycare had many children, including infants who were in heavy cribs.

The daycare supervisor, looking at all the children they needed to evacuate, was in a panic over what they could do. There were many children, mostly toddlers, as well as the infants that would need to be taken out with the cribs.

There was no time to try to bundle them into carriers and strollers. Just then a young Marine came running into the center and asked what they needed. After hearing what the center director was trying to do, he ran back out into the hallway and disappeared.

The director thought, 'Well, here we are-on our own.'

About 2 minutes later, that Marine returned with 40 other Marines in tow. Each of them grabbed a crib with a child, and the rest started gathering up toddlers. The director and her staff then helped them take all the children out of the center and down toward the park near the Potomac and the Pentagon.

Once they got about 3/4 of a mile outside the building, the Marines stopped in the park, and then did a fabulous thing - they formed a circle with the cribs, which were quite sturdy and heavy, like the covered wagons in the Old West. Inside this circle of cribs, they put the toddlers, to keep them from wandering off.

Outside this circle were the 40 Marines, forming a perimeter around the children and waiting for instructions. There they remained until the parents could be notified and come get their children.

The chaplain then said, "I don't think any of us saw nor heard of this on any of the news stories of the day. It was an incredible story of our men there. There wasn't a dry eye in the room. The thought of those Marines and what they did and how fast they reacted; could we expect any less from them? It was one of the most
touching stories from the Pentagon."

Remember Ronald Reagan's great compliment: "Most of us wonder if our lives made any difference. Marines don't have that problem."

NO BRIDGE

The CM PRESS is strongly against a 19th Street bridge.

We've written about this before and laid out our reasoning, but given the fact that there are some who are still pushing for a bridge, we wanted to make it clear that we see no advantages to the Westside in having a bridge and many disadvantages.

Who is pushing for a bridge?  Mainly those who believe it will lessen traffic on Victoria, Adams and PCH and will ensure that the Gisler Street bridge is never needed.

We understand their concerns, but given the particular circumstances surrounding the 19th Street area and the Westside Bluffs, we believe a 19th Street bridge will ruin any chances for the type of improvement in that area that is needed.

But, as we've written before, we always have an open mind and if anyone can make a persuasive argument that such a bridge would actually help the Westside, we'd be glad to listen.

Our goal is the same today as when we first proposed Westside Plans (we did that even before the various Westside Committees came up with similar plans a few years later): to improve the Westside and thus improve all of Costa Mesa.

Our view has always been that any area of our city that has too many functionally obsolete apartment buildings that act as breeding grounds for crime and social dysfunction, along with an overabundance of non-profits that help create and maintain a ghetto atmosphere, is a cancer on the rest of the city and will spread unless that cancer is removed.

Many people seem to have forgotten that the expensive studies that went into creating the three Westside Plans established the fact that large parts of the Westside legally qualified for redevelopment and eminent domain that would essentially scrape the land clean of what's there now and would allow for building a new Westside from the ground up.

That idea of scraping the land clean was rejected by the Committees working on the Westside Plans in favor of allowing the private sector to work closely with city government to bring in a more organic improvement that would be less jarring to citizens of Costa Mesa.

WHAT TOO MANY GOODY TWO SHOES MISS ABOUT HOMELESSNESS


"[He] liked the freedom of the streets...."  That's a line in the above story about one of the guys who was murdered recently.

Our guess is if you ask the right questions of many homeless people, you'll get the same answer about freedom.

This is important because it seems as though many do-gooders think all the homeless people want to have homes. Some do. But many don't want a settled life. The problem is that some do-gooders lump all homeless people together as though they are people who want to live like settled people. In so thinking, the do-gooders often come up with the wrong solutions to what they consider a problem.

We're reminded of how in Europe many countries have for hundreds of years tried to "solve" the Gypsy problem [called Travellers in Ireland] by providing homes for Gypsies and by giving them ordinary jobs.  Most Gypsies don't want the homes and trash them; and they don't like the ordinary jobs.

A similar world view is held by many homeless people.

What we have in America is a homeless sub-culture of people who have chosen a different life style--one that settled people might not find attractive, but which appeals to those who value their personal freedom--no mortgages, no bills, no demands on their time, and the company of others with a similar outlook.  A better name for them might be New Hobos, New Gypsies or New Travellers.  

Many of them are military vets who are alienated and who have a hard time readjusting to civilian life.

Whatever they're called, they're here to stay, and we should expect their numbers to rise as more and more troops leave military services.

NEWPORT COUNCILMEMBERS UNDER INVESTIGATION

Recently, the CM PRESS called on the Costa Mesa City Council to form a standing Westside Revitalization Committee, composed of ordinary citizens, to bring suggestions to the City Council.

Newport has its own versions of such a committee.  The problem is that Newport has put a couple of its Councilmembers on their committees and now the FPPC is looking into whether they have a conflict of interest as they seem to have pushed for changes to areas where they own property.

Costa Mesa should avoid a similar situation, and it would if it formed the Westside Revitalization Committee as suggested by the CM PRESS.  That is, no Councilmembers or Commissioners on the committee--just ordinary citizens.

SUPREME COURT RULES THAT COPS NEED SEARCH WARRANTS BEFORE USING GPS TRACKING DEVICES

Another good decision by the Supreme Court.

Too many cops have political and social agendas (consider Costa Mesa) and use their positions to further those political and social agendas.

Before the last election in Costa Mesa there were rumors that some in the CMPD may have been using GPS devices to follow some candidates who wanted to curtail the unions from electing puppets to the City Council.  This was never confirmed, but it was confirmed that at least one CMPD cop used such a device to track an ex-girlfriend.

There are also rumors that some in the CMPD may have links to some so-called anti-hate organizations that also have political and social agendas.

You may recall that a San Francisco cop was found to be giving out confidential information to one of these so-called anti-hate organizations and that the cop fled the country when he was discovered.

Then there was the stink-eye incident in Costa Mesa; we don't think the results of the investigation were ever made completely public but it sure looked as though the CMPD was trying to intimidate citizens and even one sitting City Councilmember before the last election.

Eleanor Egan
NIT PICKEDITY MS. ELEANOR IS BACK WITH FEARS OF A PUTINESQUE TAG TEAM TAKE OVER OF COSTA MESA

Ms. Eleanor's latest fear of a secret plot to take over Costa Mesa is that the City Council will sneak in a qualification requiring anyone who runs for City Council to  have served on the Planning Commission or the Parks and Recreation Commission--sort of a modern version of the old requirement that only landowners can vote and hold office or only men can vote.

See, the problem--at least in Ms. Eleanor's mind--is that since the City Council appoints all the people to the Planning Commission and the Parks and Recreation Commission, that those dastardly good Councilmembers will put their friends on those two commissions and then these friends will be the only ones who can run for the Council and when they get elected, these former Commissioners will appoint the now out of office Councilmembers to the Planning Commission and the Parks and Recreation Commission and then in a perpetual game of switching seats, these new Commissioners who were formerly City Councilmembers will run for the Council again and then they'll appoint the former Commissioners who are now Councilmembers back to the Commissions and then....

No, we're not kidding.  That's Ms. Eleanor's latest concern.  Does she offer examples of any cities where this happens?  Of course not.  Why?  Because it's just silly.

Well, anyway, perhaps the Council should simply tighten up the language a little to give Ms. Eleanor some rest.  She must be wearing her fingers to the bone typing all these silly letters and columns against the good Councilmembers.

THREE WESTSIDE PLANS ARE NOW EASIER TO FIND ON THE CITY'S WEBSITE

These plans are a great road map for improving the Westside.

If you don't have the time or desire to read them all, here's the most important thing to remember: The Westside Plans make it far easier for the private sector to make changes on the Westside and they offer attractive incentives to those who take the financial risk to pioneer such changes.

In addition to the above, there are things discussed in the plans, or which flow from things discussed in the plans, that the City can do relatively inexpensively--right now, today--to improve the vibes on the Westside to make it more attractive for upwardly mobile people to buy homes and start businesses there.

Hopefully, developers, upwardly mobile people looking for homes, and various business people will take the time to read the plans. 

And, even more hopefully, City Hall will assign an agressive person to act as an ombudsman who knows his or her way around City Hall and who can grease the rails of those wanting to invest money or their future on the Westside.

WHITE VIETNAM VET ATTACKED AND BEATEN BY SIX NON-WHITES (FIVE BLACKS AND ONE POSSIBLY LATINO) IN PHILADELPHIA

[LATEST: Here's the same story as told on THE BLAZE. This one has a photo of the White vet.]

With video.

Because the race/ethnicity of the attackers is shown, the major news outlets are hiding the race of the victim, but the CM PRESS did a google search and there's a photo of the White victim lying in a hospital bed.

Will there be hate crime charges filed against the attackers when they're caught?  Of course not.  Don't understand why?  Reread the above.  The victim was White and the attackers non-White.  Now do you understand?

REBRANDING THE WESTSIDE AND SELF CLEANING OVENS

We've gotten assurances from those in the know that we should soon see proper signage at 19th and Harbor indicating that one is entering "19 WEST."

This will be a small but significant step toward rebranding the Westside as an area that is open for business.

As you may recall, the CM PRESS reminded the City Council about putting up such a sign a couple  of City Council meetings ago and then we went back to the most recent meeting to remind them again.  If there is no sign up before the next meeting, we'll be back. 

Actually, we may be back anyway with some more suggestions for low cost things that can be done right now to spur improvement on the Westside.

Forget about waiting for the economy to turn around to do anything.  That's like saying I like steak but I can only afford hamburger so I'm not going to eat until the price of steak comes down.

We also suggested that the Council start a standing committee to oversee improvements on the Westside and to help remind the Council of things that can be done.  However, so far, this seems to have fallen on deaf ears.  So, if the City doesn't do this, you may see the CM PRESS trying to wake up all the Westside activists who were so active a few year ago.

Here's the thing about the CM PRESS's actions on the Westside.  We don't live there.  We have no financial interest in anything that happens there.  This means our actions, as they have been since 1999, can't be challenged by those who will say that we have some financial interest or motive in the area and that's the only reason we're trying to get it improved.

So, what is our motive?  It's simple.  We believe that the Westside is the key to improving all of Costa Mesa. Period.  Fix the Westside and you fix all of Costa Mesa.  Leave the Westside to rot, and you harm all of Costa Mesa.

Most other neighborhoods in Costa Mesa don't need the special care that the Westside needs.  These other neighborhoods pretty much work like self cleaning ovens, but the Westside needs some hands on help until we get the self cleaning oven installed over there.

LIBS TRYING TO BROWBEAT GOP CANDIDATES WITH THE USUAL CRIES OF 'RACIST,' BUT IT'S NOT WORKING

Read the above article and then come back here and we'll tell you what we think is really going on.

Okay, you're back.  What we think is happening in America right now is that the pendulum has begun to swing back. 

Whites, in increasing numbers, aren't saying but, but, but...when some anti-White crackpot tries to silence them whenever the White says anything that makes sense about race.  We think the GOP candidates sense this swing and they're gently trying to use this emerging new reality to their advantage.

Whites have been beaten down psychologically for several decades now and the smart money new that wasn't going to last forever.

The anti-White bigots will still thrash around and call Whites racists for even daring to tell the truth about the horrendously high violent Black crime rate or other hard facts, but "racist" is not going to have the sting it used to have.

UPDATE: ANTI-WHITE LATINO GANG MEMBERS BEING JAILED IN SAN CLEMENTE

Establishment has tried to cover up the anti-White nature of recent attacks. Even in the above news article you can see how they once again don't discuss race/ethnicity but when you dig deeper (as we have) you get to the truth.

Folks, if Whites attack people of another race/ethnicity, the establishment makes a big deal about it, but when non-Whites attack Whites (which is far more frequent) the establishment tries to cover up the race/ethnicity angle.

Why should you be aware of the race/ethnicity of the attackers and victims?  It helps you stay informed so you can play the odds and reduce your risk of being a victim.

If it's blond Swedes attacking people, you should also be informed of that; but that's not the case, is it?

COSTA MESA TAXPAYERS ASSOCIATION STRIKES  a BLOW FOR A FREE COSTA MESA TOMORROW

The know-nothings and assorted cranks have been doing their mouth breathing at recent City Council meetings as they spew their hate at the good Councilmembers, but tomorrow night the Costa Mesa Taxpayers Association enters the fray to help set the record straight.

Here's the info (slightly edited by CM PRESS) from Colin McCarthy who heads the group:

CMTax meeting on Thursday January 19th at 6:00 p.m. at the Neighborhood Community Center (adjacent to Lion’s Park). The meeting is free and open to the public.

In addition to hearing from our Assemblyman, Hon. Allan Mansoor, about the Stop Special Interest Money Campaign which will appear on the November ballot, we are hosting a critical panel discussion of Costa Mesa’s Charter City proposal. Our panelists include Costa Mesa Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer, key proponent of the Charter proposal, Costa Mesa Councilmember Steve Mensinger, who will explain his position, and Oceanside City Councilmember Jerry Kern.

So why did we invite a Councilmember from the City of Oceanside to a Costa Mesa meeting? Oceanside voters recently approved a Charter proposal for their City. Measure “K” passed in June 2010 by a 54% to 46% margin despite significant and expensive opposition by organized labor. Mr. Kern was part of the battle to return Oceanside back to its residents by approving their Charter. Oceanside’s Charter is very similar to the Charter being proposed in Costa Mesa.

A number of you have contacted me inquiring about the proposed Charter and questioning not the substance of the document itself, but the process. I have yet to hear from a single CMTax member opposed to the draft Charter. However, some of you are wondering why the City is pursuing the Charter so quickly and in the June primary election as opposed to the November general election.

At first glance, the process can appear to be expedited. However, upon closer review that is not the case. The Charter idea was brought forward in early December. There have already been several public hearings on the Charter with several more to come. If it is approved to go before voters, that approval will not come until March, with an additional three months of education and outreach after that. All told, Costa Mesa voters will have six months from beginning to end to vet and consider the Charter before voting on it.

If the Charter was postponed until the November election it would have to compete with a litany of proposed Statewide ballot measures, including several anticipated measures to raise taxes. Add in a Presidential, U.S. Senate and Congressional race, State and local races, and it’s easy to see how the Charter would get lost in the mix. With a June election, the Charter will be the only measure on the ballot and will get its own top-billing and due consideration by the voters. In fact, most other cities that have enacted Charters (including Oceanside) have voted on the Charter in the June primary election.

Sadly, opponents of the Charter are utilizing this schedule to defeat it. They are not attacking the merits of Costa Mesa becoming a Charter City, but instead are saying that this schedule is essentially a power-grab by our fiscally conservative City Council. In fact, just this past weekend [some people] were out leafleting neighborhoods trying to drum-up opposition to the Charter even before it has been finalized or placed on the ballot! The Unions stand to lose if Costa Mesa divorces itself from Sacramento politicians and they will stop at nothing to prevent us from taking back our City.

I have not totally made up my mind on the proposed Charter, however, and I look forward to hearing more about the proposal from Mayor Pro Tem Righeimer and the City during our robust discussion about the merits of the Charter at our meeting on January 19th (invitation attached). I hope to see you there.

Please tell your friends and neighbors to add their names to our email list at www.CMTax.org/JoinUs.php and forward our updates to anyone you think may enjoy reading them. You can also visit our Facebook page, www.Facebook.com/CMTax!

POWER GRAB? CUT AND PASTE? THE CITIZENS MUST NOT LOSE CONTROL OF OUR CITY?  THE BUTCHER, THE BAKER AND THE CANDLESTICK  MAKER--HUH?

Tamar Goldmann
FAST READ AND THE CM PRESS'S MAIN POINT:

The draft charter is only seven pages long and should be easily understood by your average sixth grader.  It is not a power grab and mostly keeps the same type of government that we have now, but just takes some power away from Sacramento and gives it to the citizens of Costa Mesa.

VERBOSE VERSION:

Just prior to the start of last night's City Council meeting, Tamar Goldmann, a frequent critic of the good Councilmembers, threaded her way through the rows of seats handing out a yellow flyer to anyone who would accept it. Goldmann got near us but avoided giving us a flyer.  However, some kids who did  get the flyer and who didn't want it gave us one.

The yellow flyer seems to be Ms. Goldmann's attempt to justify and explain a green flyer handed out prior to the January 10th City Council meeting that Councilmember Mensinger took to task in such a way that Ms. Goldmann apparently took his comments as a personal attack on her.

In the yellow flyer (the one handed out last night), Ms. Goldmann says she didn't write the green flyer but did help distribute it and that she does agree with what it says. But, ah, she did write the yellow flyer and is also distributing it.

With us so far? Yeah, we know, yellow, green, this meeting, that meeting, didn't write that one but did distribute it, did write this one and is distributing it. Yawn. 

Anyway, we wanted to give you a little of the flavor of things these days.

Now, to the substance.

The Green Flyer (January 10th City Council meeting)

The green flyer says it was prepared by Costa Mesans for Responsible Government and its headline is STOP THE POWER GRAB!  It urges residents to attend the January 10th City Council meeting.  This is apparently the leaflet that was dropped on doorsteps, and which was mentioned by the Robin Lefflers in the Daily Pilot, that we wrote about before.

Here's how it starts off:  "Four guys on the City Council, a pub owner, a developer, a real estate 'consultant', and an antique dealer, decided to junk the system of general laws governing our city and make up their own rules in a HASTILY prepared city charter."

Oh no!  Not a pub owner, a developer, a real estate 'consultant,' and an antique dealer!  We're doomed.  Head for the hills. 

But wait a minute. Folks, all the City Council members have regular jobs. They always have. That's the idea: have regular citizens as Councilmembers.  It's called democracy. It's called elect the people who are your neighbors to the Council because they're living under the same conditions as you and thus may be more responsive to the needs of  the ordinary citizens of the city.

But, look, you're supposed to believe that a pub owner, a developer, a real estate 'consulant,' and an antique dealer don't have the brainpower to write a draft charter. Isn't that the real intent of telling you their jobs?

However, didn't the flyer say the pub owner, et al. had cut and pasted the draft charter? 

So, the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker, er, you know what we mean, were bright enough to look at other charters and take the things from those charters prepared by citizen committees and polished by presumably high paid lawyers, and put them in Costa Mesa's draft charter which was also polished by Costa Mesa's City Attorney. That's the right way to do things.  Why start from scratch?  Why try to reinvent the wheel?

For our part, we're all for the charter and we're all for having the Council do its job and take the initiative on such things as they are now doing by coming up with a time saving and efficient way of  presenting a draft charter to the citizens of Costa Mesa.

We could go on, and maybe we will later, but we'll leave it at this for now.

CITY COUNCIL MEETING TONIGHT

Or, as we like  to call it at the CM PRESS: The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat the Good Councilmembers as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Costa Mesa Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade personal demons in their heads.

Watch as the same tired little group of neurotics troop up to the podium to spew their hatred and personal attacks against the good Councilmembers.

Some of these nuts at night have issues, but their issues aren't about improving Costa Mesa; their issues are in their heads.  Really. The CM PRESS is convinced that some of them have low self-esteem (and other psychological problems) and thus hate anyone they see as confident and sure of himself or herself.

Watch how some of them speak.  Watch their facial tics.  Listen as they ramble and make no sense. 

And, watch as Goslow Wendy, up on the dais, slowly screws up her face in great concern for anything the nuts say as though what they're saying is important and how she really, really is taking their comments to heart...but very, very slowly.

The curtain rises at 6:00 PM.

HEY HATERS, BIGOTS, ASSORTED IMPROVEMENT OBSTRUCTIONISTS AND MISCELLANEOUS NEUROTICS

We hear you can get a good price on this A-Frame to pull around the city in your present hate campaign.

Maybe it will help you in your misguided and lefty attempt to convince people that Costa Mesans should pay more for services than we have to pay and that we shouldn't try to right size government or improve the Westside or have a charter that gives local control to local people.

Here's a slogan you can also use: Hate not Hope.

Form follows function.)

Hmmmm. Decision time. Get a good paying job doing a voice-over but have an eternal sinus headache, or lose the gig and not have a headache. I opted for no headache.

TWO SHOT IN SAN CLEMENTE

This happened yesterday and follows the attack by Latinos on a couple of young White guys--one is in a coma after being hit in the head with a brick--that we reported on earlier.

Conflicting reports on this shooting.  First reports were that two Whites had been shot by Latinos. Now there are reports that a man with a White name has been arrested as one of the shooters and some are speculating that this shooting was a payback for the attack on the two Whites earlier in the week.

If we get additional information, we'll let you know.

[UPDATE: Rumors now are that the attack was by Latinos on Whites, and that the man with a White name was with the Whites who were shot and was arrested for carrying a gun. No information as to whether he fired his weapon at the Latino shooters. None of this has been confirmed.]

MAN STABBED ON WESTSIDE IN TALBERT PARK

#                        #                                 #

UPDATE ON COLUMN BELOW: 

We've now seen comments from some White readers who still don't understand.

Instead of reading the story below and calling for a White Chamber of Commerce [or, as we have written previously, a White Congressional Caucus, et al.], they suggest that we should all be raceless (as they wrongly consider themselves to be) and have no private groups or institutions or organizations for people of this or that race or ethnicity.

The subconscious thinking of those saying this is often:  "We're Good aracial White people and we don't think of ourselves as White. You should listen to us and you shouldn't think of yourself as Black (or Asian or Latino or whatever) and just be aracial, but, ah, be sure to act aracially White just like us."

O.C. WHITE CHAMBER BEHIND FILM ABOUT A GREAT WHITE LEADER

The Good Whites, reading the above, probably dropped their lattes as they rushed to call the O.C. Human Relations Commission and write letters to the newspapers saying they're against hate and how they don't notice skin color and how they're organizing a candlelight walk to show their solidarity with non-Whites.

Of course if you click on the link you'll find that the article in the OC REGISTER isn't about a White Chamber of Commerce or any great White leaders at all.  Why, that would be racist, right? 

Yes, dear readers, the CM PRESS has just turned it around again to make the point about the double standard in our society.

The gushy attaboy article linked to in the OC REGISTER is about the O.C. Black Chamber of Commerce. 

"Whew," say the Good Whites. "We just love that those people have their own chamber of commerce and of course there should not be a White chamber of commerce.  That would be racist and White supremacist. Can't have Whites organizing as Whites for anything." 

So here we are, dear readers, in our present anti-White Dark Age in which every group that Whites belong to must look like the United Nations to show that Whites have no sense of who and what they are and won't work to help their own people.

That needs to change.

Robin Leffler
 THE ROBINS SAY THEY'RE NOT TIED TO LABOR

In the above article, the Robins say that they have a new group called Costa Mesans for Responsible Government.  Our guess is that it is just the same old Return to Reason gang of libs.

Anyway, the Robins say that "we" put out 9,000 leaflets last weekend concerning the charter.

Now, the CM PRESSES didn't see any of those leaflets, but we
wonder if they had headlines such as:

"KEEP COSTA MESANS SLAVES TO TWO BIT POLITICIANS IN SACRAMENTO WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN TO COSTA MESA"

"WE ARE LIKE DUMB CHILDREN AND WE CAN'T GOVERN OURSELVES, KEEP SACRAMENTO IN CHARGE OF COSTA MESA"

"WE'RE LOONEY LIBERALS AND WE LIKE BIG, FARAWAY GOVERNMENT DICTATING TO US"

"REJECT LOCAL CONTROL AND SELF GOVERNMENT FOR COSTA MESA--LET THE KING IN ENGLAND  POLITICIANS IN SACRAMENTO TELL US WHAT TO DO"
-------------
You know folks, we Martins at the CM PRESSES have always believed that government that is closest to the people is the best government.  What do the many politicians in Sacramento whose districts are hundreds of miles away from Costa Mesa, and who probably don't even know where Costa Mesa is located, know about running our particular city?

Didn't the Goslow Wendys--the Godmothers of the malcontents and obstructionists--gush that Costa Mesa is "unique"?  If so, then wouldn't it be better for us to govern ourselves?

Lack of self-esteem behind some of the hate?

Something else has occurred to us concerning the hatred that some seem to aim mostly at the Jim Righeimers and the Steve Mensingers that we think might be pathological.

Certainly, it seems that the attacks against the Jims and the Steves come after virtually anything either of these two do or say.  If you doubt this, just check the comments in the Daily Pilots following the most innocuous things from these guys and you'll see hatred falling off the page from the mostly anonymous commenters.

If the Jims or the Steves say that the day is going to be sunny, the haters will whine.  If they say that the day isn't going to be sunny, the haters will whine.  You see what's really going on here, don't you?  It's personal hatred in some cases.

Why? What is the psychological basis for such personal hatred?

Well, here's one possible explanation. We've heard similar hatred aimed at the Rush Limbaughs, coming from people who we know and who we know have low self-esteem. 

We've actually probed some of these people a little to get to what really bugs them about the Rushes.  The cover explanations often involved politics, but then when we dug deeper we got to things such as: "He's too full of himself."  "He's too assertive."  "He's too sure of himself."  "He thinks he's better than others." 

And most, but not all, of the comments like this come from women---who are apparently threatened by men who are assertive and sure of themselves.  Could some of this be going on with some of the haters of the Jims and the Steves?  Maybe.

So here's our advice to the Jims and the Steves:  Pansy up boys.  Start wearing pink ruffled shirts. Don't speak as though you know what you're talking about.  Don't sound competent.  Don't sound sure of yourselves. Don't mention football.

Study the Goslow Wendys' faces which always show the greatest concern, for whatever anyone says.  Just copy the Goslow Wendys' expressions And then, of course, you can do like the Goslow Wendys and not actually do anything to really help that person. 

You see, as we've written before in the CM PRESSES, such people who think the Goslow Wendys are doing a good job don't even care that the Goslow Wendys don't do anything. They don't want answers.  They don't want solutions. They just want someone to shutup and give them a shoulder to cry on, to commiserate with them, and  say tsk, tsk at the right moments.  It's a girly kind of thing.

MS. ELEANOR IS AT IT AGAIN

Here's how Eleanor Egan starts off her latest anti-good Councilmembers tirade in the Daily Pilot:

"Some Costa Mesa voters are under the false impression that, if the city were to adopt a charter, it could walk away from its pension obligations or substantially change them."

They are?  Which voters, Ms. Eleanor?  Which ones? 

Can it be, Ms. Eleanor, that you've just made this up as an easily knocked down straw man that you use as a segue into more negative comments about the charter--which, of course, isn't your real target at all, is it Ms. Eleanor?  No, you are really out to knock the good Councilmembers and you're using the charter as your latest attaque au fer, are you not?

But even if you did hear someone say what you claim "some Costa Mesa voters" believe, so what?  Costa Mesa voters can be found who have all sorts of odd ideas, but most people don't think it's necessary to pen a column for every nutty idea that is out there--unless of course, as we indicated above--we want to use the nutty ideas as a lead in for another attack on the good Councilmembers.

We see you Ms. Eleanor.  Say, isn't it now time for Mr. Tom to write the next attack? Then, it'll be you again.  Then, Mr. Tom, then you, then Mr.Tom, ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

HEY MANSOOR, DON'T BE A PARTY PUKE

The lines below are in the above article about Scott Baugh pushing the local GOP to endorse Allan Mansoor, and they caught our eye:

"Mansoor made his reputation as an opponent of illegal immigration while on the Costa Mesa City Council, before winning an Assembly seat two years ago. But he wasn't interested in talking about immigration in an interview Wednesday..."

Yeah, we know how it works.  You get elected and then the party hacks start dictating to you to play ball.  And, in this case, playing ball means to follow the dictates of Baugh and the other suits who are pursuing a PC agenda that, among other things, has them not talking about illegal aliens.

Remember last year when Baugh was outraged over a joke about Obama made by a grandmother who is on the Orange County Republican Central Committee?  That's just part of the PC nonsense these suits are into these days.

Say, Mansoor and Baugh, how about starting a California Legislative White Caucus?

Don't know how to do it?  Well, just go HERE to the California Legislative Black Caucus Website  for ideas.   When you get there, you'll note that it says the Black Caucus has had "44 Years of Legislative Advocacy for African Americans."

Still need more information on how to do it?  Just go HERE to the California Latino Legislative Caucus Website.

Uh oh, the Good Whites are outraged.  "The CM PRESS used the word "white."  That's racist.  And, the CM PRESS wants a California Legislative White Caucus.  That's white supremacist.  What's that you say? You want to know why the Black Caucus and the Latino Caucus are okay, but a White Caucus wouldn't be okay?  Ah, er, you're a racist to even ask that and you should be ashamed of yourself." Sigh.

A POLITICAL ERROR OF THE COSTA MESA CITY COUNCIL

Costa Mesa City Councilmembers don't get many opportunities to bring supporters  into government with them.

For this reason, the Councilmembers should choose wisely and not waste a single opportunity. Their next election chances may hinge on bringing the right people in with them.  Read on. 

The only paid people the Council can directly appoint are five people to the Planning Commission and five people to the Parks and Recreation Commission.  Ten people. (10)  These ten should be the main line of support.

The Council can also appoint friends and supporters to the unpaid committees, but these are much less important appointments.  Perhaps sixty people. (60)

Lastly, the Council can set the tone so the City Manager  CEO might choose to hire people who are friendly to the sitting Council. (Just a few people).

All of the above appointments and hirings are important, especially if a Council, like the present one, is activist and brings in major changes to the way the city is governed.

With changes comes controversy and opposition and with major changes comes major controversy and major opposition.

When there is controversy and opposition, the Council needs stand-up people to counter the controversy and opposition.

The Council needs family, friends and supporters to go to City Council meetings.  It needs family, friends and supporters to write letters to the newspapers. 

It needs family, friends and supporters to stand up and support the Council and its actions and to talk to other friends and neighbors.

But, the Council is just five members, and in our present case, there are only four Councilmembers who are bringing in the changes. 

How many family members, friends and supporters of these four are we hearing from?

Where are they?  They're certainly not filling the City Council chambers.  They're not making many comments in the Daily Pilot.  Where are they?  Don't tell us that they're the silent majority.  Don't tell us they're too busy working.

Where are the 5 Planning Commissioners, their family members,their friends, their supporters and those they influence?

Where are the 5 Parks and Recreation Commissioners, their family members, their friends, their supporters and those they influence?

Where are the 60 or so Committee members, their family members, their friends and their supporters and those they influence?

Where are the highly paid executives hired by the City; perhaps with some influence by the Council?  Where are their family members, their friends, their supporters and those they influence? Well, in this last case, we can answer that some of these highly paid executives don't even live in Costa Mesa, so they have no interest in standing up for the Council. And, yes, we know they mostly have to appear to be apolitical, so we'll speak no more of them here.

The Council members can suggest to their own families, that they should support the Council, but they really can't demand that the Commissioners and the Committee members do so.  This is something that these people must choose to do or not do all on their own. That's why the Council has to choose wisely.

Are we seeing many stand-up types among the people brought into government by the present Council?

Not really.  There are a couple of people who stand up--a couple on the Commissions, maybe a few on the committees, but most aren't doing anything.  Most are just sitting on their hands. They just aren't showing up or doing anything meaningful.

Politically speaking, the Council has wasted a lot of opportunities to build support by making poor appointments, and it shows at every City Council meeting lately and in comments in the newspapers.

Except for a few exceptions, the Council has not appointed the A team to help make the changes that the Council wants to make and to win election this year.

If I had the ears of the Councilmembers, I'd tell them they need to take some corrective action.
