IF YOU WANT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY AND SLEEP LIKE A BABY AT NIGHT YOU MUST PUT THE TRUTH FIRST.

THE TRUTH

IT IS WHAT I TRULY BELIEVE IN. WELL IN THE CASE OF STATE SENATOR CANDIDATE JOSHUA FERGUSON’S RESPONSE UNDER THE FFFF ARTICLE “THE WHITAKER RECORD” HE TOLD THE TRUTH. I BELIEVE ALL PEOPLE SHOULD GET CREDIT FOR THEIR TRUTHFUL STATEMENTS MADE ON THE RECORD. HERE ARE HIS COMMENTS, WHICH I TOTALLY AGREE WITH.

 

The Whitaker Record

“Okay, I’ll bite.

You’re mad because you can’t get a good wine so what do you do?

Apparently you sit on the sidelines and complain that you can’t get good wine as it gets worse and worse each year. I’d rather try and make wine. That’s EXACTLY why Napa is world renowned for wine. Delusional people set out to make a change.

You can consider me delusional all you want but I’d rather be delusional than a defeatist.

I would have never thrown my name in and would have eagerly supported Whitaker if I thought he’d fight. But he won’t and he hasn’t.

We have serious allegations of police misconduct & obstruction of justice in the Felz case alone. Whitaker is Mayor. What has he done to get to the bottom of it?

Be precise about the actions in this case. I’ll award bonus points for source citations.

As a reminder the former police chief allegedly obstructed justice on his way out of the door. The DA allegedly ignored it owing to political favors.

Do we need to put a ribbon on the tee before the bat is swung? We can’t swing it for the council. The whole council is complicit in this corruption but the Mayor has the power to put things on the Agenda. He doesn’t.  I see a new higher paid chief from a problematic department. That’s it.  Where’s the oversight? Reform? Investigation? Anything?

Oh I know. Despite the council being 3-2 (R) he doesn’t think he can accomplish anything so its better to do nothing.

Put it on record. Put reform and an investigation on the agenda and make the opposition take a pro-cover-up position. Make them make the pro-corruption vote. Do something. Be the voice you ran to be and fight for us and if you won’t don’t be surprised if allies get fed up and try to use their own voices you seem intent on ignoring.

Newman is being recalled because he lied to voters and opted to rob us blind. I’m not about to vote for somebody else who will sit silently owing to a minority position while we still get robbed.

I’ve had enough of (R)s who say they’d do the right thing if only they had power. Fight for the right thing or you’ll never get the chance.”

 

That concludes Mr. Ferguson’s remarks.  As I stated in my title of this article, I give people credit for telling the truth in a public forum.  Ferguson has been supportive of Mayor Bruce Whitaker and an ally in the past.   The fact that he was willing to look at Whitaker’s public performance to judge whether he is worthy of Ferguson’s support is admirable.   Two fellow conservatives Sean Paden and David Curlee, still in my opinion see Mayor Whitaker thru rose color glasses.

Click the photo to understand more about Bruce’s sycophant Paden.

Paden goes out of his way to support him no matter what the facts state.  Blind allegiance in politics is extremely dangerous.

The big question is whether I would vote for Ferguson.   There are a few issues that I would need to hear more from him on.   I have seen him in a few instances, in my humble opinion, put saving taxpayer dollars ahead of the overall benefit to the community.  I am a fiscal conservative and hate to see any taxpayer monies wasted but government has a role and sometimes monies need to be in fact spent for the benefit of the overall community.

In conclusion, my answer as of August 3, 2017 is that I would give his candidacy serious consideration.  It is early and we may not know the names of all candidates who will throw their hats into the ring.

But the bottom line, I appreciate very much Ferguson’s above comments concerning Bruce Whitaker and see it as his taking an independent second look at a former ally.  It takes a certain amount of courage to distance yourself from someone you used to support wholeheartedly.

Finally, as Ferguson said above…”Okay, I’ll bite.” `  I am glad he did.

    Wasn’t it Bushala who gave us Whitaker again and again you fools? We tried to warn all you loons about Tony. You were all too blind at the time with the recall. Barry took his money and I know for a fact Imbriano had a recall sign on his gate. So much hate for people that had nothing to do with Kelly’s death and now Tony has nothing to do with seeking justice. He even turned against Ron Thomas. Tony just uses people to further his selfish goals for enriching himself. It was and still is all about development. Aside from Bushala, Whitakers major donors have always been developers and people associated with the industry. You guys are a little late to the epiphany. Funny how this guy with the ZZ top look latched right on to Bushala out of the shoot and now he sees the light only after he wants to run for a position he has no chance in hell of even getting near?

      • #3 by Joe Imbriano on August 4, 2017 - 11:19 am

        Josh has been either not been paying attention for very long or worse. Bruce has been exposed for over a year now on this site and at the council meetings. Joshua chose to ignore everything factually documented about what a political fraud Bruce was for over a year. He chose to ignore it until now. How do you explain that? Was he ever one of Tony’s tools? He wanted to be the sharpest one in Tony’s shed. It just didn’t work out for him. He just hitched up to crowd over there and like the rest of them, ignored all 20 of the articles we have done on Bruce and his phoniness. He, along with the other Whitaker sycophant Paden have, however, made a complete mockery of what is being done to Fullerton’s children including their very own daughters with respect to the sterilization agenda in the schools. He and Sean made it perfectly clear through their own written statements. He and Paden have chosen to make a joke out of the most serious issues facing this community’s most vulnerable segment of the population. What’s worse is they, including Rands, Curlee, Paden, Leslie, and even Bushala sat through council meetings and ignored everything that was said about the disgusting repeal of the city’s sex offender ordinance.

          Per usual, you’ve invented facts in your own head and insist others disprove them.

          This is why it matters that you believe the world is flat.

          People don’t agree with you, Joe. It doesn’t mean they deserve to be persecuted or “exposed” as you like to put it.

          I don’t know why you insist on doing all of this by yourself, but you’d be better off trying to work with people on selective issues.

          Oh, wait, I know exactly why. Nevermind.

          • #5 by Joe Imbriano on August 4, 2017 - 11:33 am

            Joshua has mocked the plight of the school children on his own website. Words do not lie. A retraction would be in order for starters. As far as him sitting in sycophant row at the council meetings ignoring issue after issue unless it fit the narrow Whitaker guided boiler plate, well….

            • #6 by Anonymous on August 4, 2017 - 11:36 am

              How could I have forgotten the great Wi-Fi litmus test.

              Agree with Imbriano or you’re evil and must be destroyed.

              Take note, Barry. Your time will come.

              • #7 by Joe Imbriano on August 4, 2017 - 11:39 am

                Lets stick to sitting in on multiple council meetings in sycophant row locking arms with Tony’s tool chest ignoring the issues that face our community. Facts are facts.

                • #8 by Anonymous on August 4, 2017 - 11:49 am

                  Except they’re your facts, so they’re totally false.

                  Holy shit! People sit next to each other! They just agree on everything!

                  You’re insane. Flat out and completely insane.

                  • #9 by Joe Imbriano on August 4, 2017 - 12:00 pm

                    There you have it. The justification to ignore everything is simply to just call people insane. It works for you but changes nothing. Go back to FFFF and pack Tony’s bong or help Travis fix another one of his broken axles. This rubber room is not the place for you.

            Mr. Imbriano’s comments above are indeed correct. Ferguson has some explaining to do for his tardiness in realizing the phoniness of Bruce Whitaker. He also needs to continue to expose the frauds that make up much of Fullerton’s leadership.

            But I say better late than never. He is basically a novice to politics and I am willing to be open minded about his candidacy. I will take a wait and see attitude toward him and his candidacy.

            In politics you have to make choices. Either you are your own person or you are not. Those that are not their own person, cozy up to the political establishment and basically leave their integrity behind. It is not that hard to notice these things if you pay attention and are willing to view each candidate objectively.

          • #13 by Anonymous on August 9, 2017 - 12:29 pm

            Joe just lays the facts bare for all to see. Let the persecuted as you call it come to their own defense using their real names. Otherwise, if it pains you so then just go away.

        • #14 by Anonymous on August 7, 2017 - 5:31 pm

          Yes he has, He has chosen to ignore many issues and flat out make fun of others. He is a child who wants to get involved in a senate race?

    Joshua Ferguson: “You can consider me delusional all you want but I’d rather be delusional than a defeatist.”

    Mr. Ferguson is not delusional or a defeatist. He is blind to the reality, an unconscious being.

  3. #16 by Barry Levinson on August 4, 2017 - 11:13 am

    If only those that were the odds on favorite chose to run we would have no choices at all.

    I suggest those criticizing Ferguson based on the odds of him winning, try critiquing him based on his positions instead.

    Whenever someone runs on the issues, we all win for all too often the leading candidates just blow smoke at the electorate.

    • #17 by Joe Imbriano on August 4, 2017 - 11:27 am

      His odds mean nothing. His positions mean everything and his actions speak louder than odds or positions. He has ignored the most serious of the issues in terms of who would be most impacted by them. As far as Hughes, he needs to go to jail. I have never seen him publicly utter a word about that or publicly asking for anything to be done about it. Barry, you and I went to the police station how many times trying to get justice served? How many times did we raise the issue here on this site and visit the gestapo headquarters? Josh has written a paragraph on it and I hope he will do something about now that he appears to have woken up. Perhaps he can go back and demand that they do something about the stairs after he dropped that issue like a hot brick and perhaps drag David Curlee with him who dropped the Brea Dam issue like a hot brick too. Maybe Josh can wake all of them up and get them to finally do what the residents here need and that is legitimately and effectively advocate for the greater good of this community. Barry you set the best example to follow and perhaps finally they will see the need to no longer be afraid and do what is right and tell the truth.

        Going to the police station is ineffective. That’s why nobody else is doing it.

        • #20 by Joe Imbriano on August 4, 2017 - 11:56 am

          Remaining silent is ineffective but politically safe and that is why everyone is doing it. I am grateful for Joshua’s statement. I look forward to Joshua working to seek justice for the good people of Fullerton. I am however, concerned that he appears to lack the fortitude to deal with the larger issues that he still makes fun of. Maybe retractions are in order including but not limited to one over his statement regarding his clearly valuing the cost of defending a potential lawsuit regarding the repeal of the sex offender ordinance over the safety of Fullerton’s children.

          Barry, Zonya, Diane and I all proved right in front of a room full of Tony’s tools and Whitaker’s sycophants that Touchstone was lying through his teeth and the council voted to protect pedophiles. Not a word out of any of them including Joshua. That is either a serious character flaw or a symptom of being morally bankrupt. In my opinion, people that refuse to stand up for the children are evil and people that make fun of people who stand up for children are even worse.

          • #21 by Anonymous on August 4, 2017 - 3:23 pm

            You are such a whiney bitch.

            No one listens to me! Why? Whhhhhhy? They must be morally bankrupt!

            Or, maybe, you’ve gone off on so many mindless rants that everyone tunes out whenever you start filming your vain self.

            Or, maybe, no one wants to be associated with anything you have to say.

            Who knows, but one thing is for sure. Not supporting you does not equate with moral bankruptcy. It equates with you being toxic and ignoring the impact your reputation has on the causes you support.

            Maybe if you weren’t intent on having everyone worshiping you and your camera, you’d have more people support you. But you won’t. You can’t.

            • #22 by Joe Imbriano on August 4, 2017 - 5:25 pm

              I told you to go back to FFFF and pack Tony’s bong and help Travis with his broken axles. This rubber room is not for you. For the rest of you, you know there is no excusing the silence on the issues. These arguments are pathetic. You simply just call people crazy and it makes it all go away. That is brilliant. Turn your backs on reality because you have personal problems with the messenger. That is really a sign of reaching puberty. Last time I checked, everyone got 3 minutes unless Tony’s tools cut it down to 2 like they did on Tuesday, so no one is stopping all you brave hearts from dealing with reality and stepping right up and speaking truth. Oh but since Joe did, that means we don’t have to because no one will listen because we are saying the same things he is? People who sit through meeting after meeting who for years ignore and mock the demise of children are the definition of morally bankrupt. You can’t go any lower but then again, considering the years of silence and mocking from some of the community pillars and political operatives, nothing would surprise me anymore. Just leave the site if you are so unhappy with the administrator. Go back to FFFF and cover some of the issues of our time like the 300 dollar hotel bills.

                Bushala always was and always is going to be all about Bushala-and development. He and his group deserve zero respect from anyone. They know not the meaning of the word integrity. From their vile comments to their lies

            • #24 by Anonymous on August 4, 2017 - 6:11 pm

              You are a child anonymous. What is a shamefully flailing attempt to abdicate your civic responsibilities.

              Joe is a hero. He is a brilliant guy with an uncanny ability to figure things out. He is the classic iconoclast and one of the most effective political activists that I have ever met.

              He is tenacious, and he has more integrity and guts than you could ever understand. That is why you and so many others cannot stand him because he pulls back the curtain in broad daylight exposing all the corruption. That part must be real painful for some of you.

          • #25 by Anonymous on August 4, 2017 - 4:16 pm

            There is no excuse for their silence, nor their cowardice. Lies and defamation precede them. They are juveniles in thought and infantile in action. They are who they choose to be. They are the majority.

        • #26 by Anonymous on August 7, 2017 - 10:01 pm

          Sure and so are Phony Bushala’s pair of 300-pound sacks Seaborn and Whitaker up on the council. They haven’t uttered a word about how Hughes should be charged with a crime. Now there is real half a million dollar reform for you. Come to think of it, we haven’t heard boo from Phony Bushala’s bull pen either. Come to think of it, we haven’t heard anything from Phony Bushala at all about anything except him crawling out from under a rock to speak out against the competition for his planned downtown entertainment venue.

    When someone fails to step up and do the right thing at council meetings it is of course disappointing.

    But I do try to be an optimist and therefore in those areas where Joshua Ferguson did not speak out at council; or in the case of the Hillcrest staircase, made a strong case for action but has not followed thru on the issue. I have hope that he will one day soon agree with me on at least some of these important issues like the child sex offender ordinance that was repealed by a unanimous city council vote based on factually incorrect information provided by Mr. Touchstone representing the City Attorney’s office. No one worth a grain of salt should allow our government leaders to get away with lying to us in order to get their agenda passed and in this case get a good strong law repealed.

    The losers are our children.

    I told you all along this person is a phony. Phony. PHONY (my favorite word). He kicked me off the Parks Board because I threatened some woman from AT&T and am generally a loudmouthed knucklehead who takes credit for other peoples’ work. I also believe the world is flat and Disney is the Anti-christ and NASA is run by Satan.

    That is all.

    I am a political operative. I am not very good at it but I am totally self absorbed so it does not matter. I am a dishonest political operative and proud of it. It includes defamation and I am proud of it. I think I have friends in high places so I can go as low as I can can go. I can go very low.
