It Is Now Crystal Clear: The Modus Operandi Of Council Member Bruce Whitaker.


I know to some this message will be very painful, to some infuriating, and to others music to their ears as fodder for political talking points and hit pieces. Believe me, it pains me to have had to have come to this. For four years I have painfully watched all of this and other disturbing developments unfold that at first I couldn’t believe, that I then didn’t want to believe and then finally that I could no longer ignore.  I must admit that when I first entered the political scene years back, I had the utmost respect for Bruce Whitaker and had admired his demeanor and his positions. That respect is long gone.


Many may not fully understand my motivations for writing this article, many will accuse me of attacking one of our own. Bruce is nowhere near one of our own as you will soon see. Others may be rejoicing at the apparent division. Ladies and gentlemen, my modus operandi has always been to tell it like it is and let the chips fall where they may because the truth will stand on its own.

Instead of Bruce doing everything in his power to tip the balance on the council and expose his boss Nelson’s sacred cow Fitzgerald WHO HAPPENS TO BE THE DECIDING VOTE EVERY TIME, he goes along to get along, ignores vital issues, remains totally silent on others, and pontificates only when it makes no difference when it is far too late when his vote means nothing. This has allowed Fitzgerald to be the deciding vote that screws Fullerton over every time.  Bruce’s silence and absence of resistance and opposition to the fact that we have a lobbyist as our mayor is mind boggling unless you understand how the game is played. He plays it safe with the bosses, pontificates when it is too little too late, means nothing, has no impact, and ensures that the agendas move along with a semblance of conservative opposition. He has and continues to allow her to remain on the council in spite of her built in conflict of interest, her horrible voting record, and then votes to give her the mayor title on the ballot. WATCH WHO ENDORSES BRUCE AND JENNIFER WHO HAVE OPPOSITE VOTING RECORDS. IT WILL SHOW YOU HOW PHONY AND RIGGED THIS WHOLE THING IS. Enough insanity folks.

You see going along to get along has resulted in Fullerton being so far gone that it will not be recognizable very, very soon.   Our problems as a community are huge and the solutions require a major sea change in politics. Fullerton is awash in red ink, greed, corruption and cronyism. Fullerton is full of busted up roads, screwed up zoning, massive development, out of control traffic, a corrupt police department, out of control spending and of course politicians that keep all this going. We need to end the status quo, remove the status quo’s henchmen and women and expose those who ostensibly come in peace, seem to be on our side and betray us in clever ways that only those who are really paying attention would ever notice.


When there was a major fiscal issue brought to Councilman Bruce Whitaker by his appointee to the Park and Recreation Committee, Mr. Levinson, Bruce Whitaker was totally silent.  He never uttered a word in his capacity as a city councilman about the 4 to 5 million dollars being squandered by the city of Fullerton on the Fullerton Golf Course contract over 20 years as shown by Mr. Levinson in great detail.  Mr. Whitaker totally ignored Mr. Levinson on this critical issue.

Equally disturbing, on another occasion, Fullerton Park and Recreation commissioner Barry Levinson was totally unaware that the Summit House Restaurant 25-year extension was to be incorrectly brought before the city council because Joe Felz decided to bypass the Parks and Recreation Department first even though the Summit House sits on Fullerton publicly owned parkland. It still had 16 years left on its sweetheart lease and they wanted to sneak through another 25 year extension behind everyone’s back.


This land is your land this land is my land

Councilmember Whitaker had at least 72-hour advance knowledge that this was on the city council agenda as a CONSENT ITEM and yet according to Mr. Levinson, Mr. Whitaker never contacted him and apprised him of this situation.  Why not?  Why the silence? Why did Bruce Whitaker not immediately discuss this critical issue with his appointee on the Park and Recreation Commission, Barry Levinson?

Barry Levinson

As Mr. Levinson and I were in attendance at that meeting, Barry pointed out at that council meeting that it was totally improper for the city to fail to bring this agenda item to the Park and Recreation Committee first and even more unconscionable that it was then put on the city council agenda as a CONSENT ITEM.   No one vetted this agenda item but the city nevertheless the city wanted to very quietly and surreptitiously pass it without any discussion.  Even after Mr. Levinson stopped this in its tracks, Mr. Whitaker, who appointed Mr. Levinson remained totally silent on the issue.  Apparently Council member Whitaker does not want to disturb the establishment order in Fullerton.  This attempted hijacking of public property was directed back to the Park and Recreation Committee for first consideration.  Mr. Levinson learned later from Hugo Curiel, Director of Parks and Recreation at a subsequent Parks and Recreation Committee meeting that the owner of the Summit House rescinded his request for the 25-year extension that would have taken the lease arrangement through 2060.


back room deal gone bad thanks to Barry

Barry, the one honest committee member was the lone voice who pulled the consent item on the city council agenda and pointed out the obvious before it was about to be approved 5 to 0 by a phony, corrupt city council without any discussion.  Once again the city council and of course the city manager was attempting to do a huge financial favor for one of its special interest friends while at the same time screwing the Fullerton public.  Did I mention that the Summit House was built with Fullerton Redevelopment money?   Redevelopment was supposed to be used to fix “blighted areas”.  Since when is parkland on one of the prettiest vistas in all of Northern Orange County next to million dollar neighborhoods considered blighted?


As Barry Levinson continued to do his job as a commissioner speaking out on various issues that directly and adversely affect the community at large, and doing so as an appointee of Bruce Whitaker , the climate at these public meetings got so bad that Mr. Levinson was shut down and not allowed to conclude his remarks after speaking only a few minutes during the communications period of the meeting. This is the part of the meeting on the agenda for Commissioners to speak on any item or topic that falls within the purview of the Park and Recreation Commission and Department.

cox 2

going along to get along-Fitzgerald appointee Cox

In response to this egregious behavior, Mr. Levinson contacted formally in writing all council members including Mr. Whitaker and again Mr. Whitaker chose to remain totally silent.   Bruce not only failed to defend Mr. Levinson’s doing his job, his right to speak in an open meeting, and carrying out his duties as Bruce’s appointee, he totally ignored him once again.

On June 23, 2016 Mr. Whitaker offered up some insight into his failure to ask for an investigation into what I believe to be a criminal attempt to get Mr. Levinson charged with a bogus misdemeanor crime in order to have him removed from his position as the Chair of The Park and Recreation Commission.  “On an objective City Council, I could have obtained a majority vote to launch an outside investigation. No chance to do so in this case where perhaps a majority participated in the collusive effort to remove him.”

First it does not explain the fact that according to Commissioner Levinson that on two separate occasions that Councilman Whitaker told Barry that if anybody from the public requests of the council an investigation into this incident, that Bruce would so attempt to get it agendized.  Three different Fullerton citizens including Mr. Levinson and myself did just that yet Bruce to this day remains silent on this issue.

Second, Bruce boasts of supporting Barry when most on the council were in Bruce’s words “collusively trying to remove him from the committee”.  Ironically, it was Bruce Whitaker himself who, without any advanced warning to Mr. Levinson, did the exact same thing without giving a single solitary reason for his unusual move in terminating Mr. Levinson from the Park and Recreation Commission.

Lastly, Bruce has stated above and on many other occasions that his refusal to bring something important forward at council is due to the lack of votes Bruce has on the council.  If that is the reason for his silence why does he always pontificate on specific agenda items which are before the council that really should be voted down when he knows it will be passed by his fellow council members?

I will answer my own question.  It is because we can count on Bruce only when there is an issue guaranteed to pass in the council to then and only then speak out and feign courage as the lonely voice of reason.  You rarely speak out in front of an issue to change the outcome for the better but rather speak only after the bad outcome is assured.  Leadership demands speaking out often to rally support and affect change?  You are more like a funeral director, talking about what could have been after the fight or the body has already been lost.  How pathetic and more importantly deceitful that this has been Bruce’s modus operandi for 6 years!


Bruce voted to make this woman mayor as he never goes after Nelson’s sacred cow and Pringle lobbyist up on the dais Fitzgerald

Six years and what are his accomplishments…. voting to appoint Jennifer Fitzgerald  as Mayor in an election year no less so her name will appear on the ballot as MAYOR making her defeat much more difficult…voting for a totally phony districting Map for Fullerton, Map 8A, which basically destroys downtown as a separate neighborhood and fireworks.

What are just a few of your incredible failures?

Never demanding or much less asking Jennifer Fitzgerald to disclose her client list from Curt Pringle and Associates, a very large lobbyist and public relations firm with ties to many Southern California government entities.   This list is necessary for her to disclose for it is the only way to ensure that she does not have a conflict of interest while representing the people of Fullerton. I have formally asked for this in writing and verbally during public comment periods which Bruce has done no such thing.


Voting to appoint Jennifer Fitzgerald Mayor of Fullerton in her compromised position as V.P of Curt Pringle and Associates with no transparency on her part.


Voting to appoint Ma’Ayn Johnson to the Planning Commission when she has a built-in conflict of interest as a senior planner for the unelected Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG).  She recently stated that the population growth of Fullerton is inevitable and we need to plan for it.   The facts are that significant growth is only inevitable if the Planning Commission and the City Council continue to vote for zoning changes that allow for high-rise development in a city with little open land except for West Coyote Hills.  She and her allies on SCAG push for this high-rise Agenda 21 Growth consistently making her biased as a commissioner. Bruce has refused to agendize her removal from the planning commission and remains silent on this issue.

DSC00429-300x225Never asking for an investigation into an apparent criminal conspiracy lead by the FPD and the City council against Mr. Levinson.  His poor excuse for being silent was that he did not have the votes.  Question:  Why does he normally pontificate on the loosing end of so, so many agenda items? Why even show up for work with that attitude?


Refusing to agendize an investigation by Michael Genacco into the attempted framing of Barry Levinson even after several residents including myself had specifically publicly asked him to do so. This was a prime example of how a concerted effort by city officials could have led to falsely imprisoning of innocent men.





Totally ignoring Mr. Levinson’s very detailed and well supported analysis of how the City of Fullerton is in the process of wasting 4 to 5 million dollars over a 20-year period starting in December 2010 by their actions to voluntarily change their agreement with American Golf Corporation to run the Fullerton Golf Course. At the same time Bruce was pushing for an audit committee on the council he was continuing to ignore his own appointee Barry Levinson on the Park and Rec commission who is an internal auditor by profession! Bruce wants an audit committee and ignores this?

bruce-whitakerVoting to disenfranchise the people of downtown Fullerton with a vote for Map 8A.

Pineda_featuredWhen Bruce had the votes to make a difference after the recall election he chose to put his political capital into legalizing Safe and Sane Fireworks at the direction of Shawn Nelson.  By doing so he squandered a golden opportunity to make real changes in Fullerton.


Failure to respond to my request to make a motion to agendize a change in selling city of Fullerton property from the current closed door, sole source negotiations to mandating every sale must be done on an open and competitive basis.


Failure to give any reasons for his dismissal of Mr. Levinson from the Park and Recreation Committee nor any warning whatsoever that he was dissatisfied with Mr. Levinson’s performance.


No wonder the City of Fullerton government continues to be such a total mess.  No one on that council has the integrity and courage to consistently do the right thing.  Without character or courage on the dais we the people of Fullerton are at the mercy of a very broken city government.

Mr. Whitaker has a ton of explaining to do to both Mr. Levinson and to the good people of Fullerton.  It is so sad to realize that Mr. Whitaker has been the consummate politician when we the people of Fullerton desperately needed a statesmen and a leader which he so cleverly portends to be when in my opinion, nothing could be further from the truth. images

Leaders lead, leaders rally the troops, leaders sound the alarm, leaders warn others of impending situations that are harmful to the community.

I guess the bar has been so low for so long in this town that Bruce actually believes he is what he claims to be. You know that a great voting record means nothing when Bruce is making sure that it will continue to mean nothing by giving corruption a pass, maintaining the establishment balance of power on the dais all the while aiding and abetting the re-election of Fitzgerald.

November will be very interesting to say the least folks especially if Fullerton really opens her eyes. Time will tell and don’t accept any wooden nickels in the meantime ladies and gentlemen. There are far too many in the political mix in this town that need to turned in to the counterfeit office.

You touched on Bushala. He went MIA. Is he lining Bruce’s pockets for votes on real estate has involved in? The other things are the same theme. Everyone ignore you guys. We knew all that already. Yawn.

    First any elected official should know that the decent thing to do is to give a reason why you are removing someone who served the city of Fullerton with honor and distinction for over 5 years (without any renumeration) as your appointee. This action by you is very unusual as I believe this is the very first time in your almost 6 years that you have removed anyone. Mr Pendergraft, your Planning Committee appointee on the other hand, misses extremely important votes on Melia Homes Project and on the Downtown Core and Corridor Specific Plan and he continues to serve as your appointee nevertheless.

    By the way, the explanation to Mr. Levinson should be in writing to him personally, unless you do not want him to know the reason for your action against him. If you are afraid to put it down in writing, the obvious question would be why would you balk at such a simple and transparent request? To remove someone with no explanation after reappointing him in 2013 and serving the people of Fullerton since February 2011 is indefensible. Council member Whitaker has reportedly ignored the emails of his appointee over several months concerning P and R business, which in and of itself, is totally inexcusable and reason enough for Fullertonians to totally loose faith in him come November.

    Council member Whitaker along with the rest of the city council and the City of Fullerton public was provided with a detailed spreadsheet demonstrating the actions of the P and R and then approved by the City Council, which will cost the taxpayers approximately 4 to 5 million over 20 years in lost revenue.

    Why would Council member Whitaker not address this very serious issue with his appointee or at council? It seems that Mr. Whitaker has a lot of explaining to do. To totally ignore a very serious matter alleging potential malfeasance or worse is obviously failing to uphold his fiduciary responsibility to the people of Fullerton. The second question that needs to be asked and answered by Council member Whitaker is why did he fail to do his job properly. Answers to both questions are overdue. I just gave Council member Whitaker 2 reasons why he needs to resign his post or be voted out by the people this November. Based on the post above, it is clear that there are many more very valid reasons to vote him out of office.

    • #4 by Joe Imbriano on June 28, 2016 - 11:36 pm

      The entire council needs to be replaced. Jan, Jennifer and Bruce in the fall as well as Greg and Doug next time around. Flory is a total joke and is probably going to hang it up but Fitzgerald needs to get a hundred thousand high density housing units approved or she is going to be out of a job with Pringle. Bruce needs to keep the activists busy looking at hotel bills while this place gets carved up by the big boys. Greg flushed almost all of the momentum of the recall down the toilet pn the OCSD bid vote and has become amalgamated with new 4F mafia-Flory, Fitzgerald and ChaFFee

      Bruce has been playing both sides very well for far too long and the only regret I have is not doing something about this sooner.

      Still no reason for firing Barry Levinson except for some convoluted, nebulous bull shit in the Observer casting more aspersions on Levinson crafted by Whitaker to justify the actions he was forced to take by his bosses and they are not the taxpayers folks.

              Fullerton Lover…What character are you referring to with regard to Bruce Whitaker. He even let’s his wife take part in the character assassination. I guess falsely trying to destroy an honest’s man’s reputation is a family affair with the Whitakers. It is a shame that he easily could have run with all the good information provided to him by his appointee, Mr. Levinson and been a hero for good government but instead he trashes him for being a good auditor and citizen.
              Mr. Whitaker is a total hypocrite for he recently called for the formation of an audit committee. Once again all talk but his actions tell a completely different story. We have Gennaco available for audits Mr. Whitaker and you failed to call for an audit of the FPD and the city council on the despicable collusive behavior against Mr. Levinson in 2014.

    I thought you went too far Joe, I really did until I really looked at this whole mess objectively. I finally have to admit that you are right about so many things. Its just that most people are not ready to really open their eyes. It is hard when family members and close friends are so closed minded.

    My parents who were big Bankhead supporters for years warned me about your “bend” on local issues. I guess Shawn Nelson’s wife had mentioned something to my mother about how your blog is nothing but lies. My mother had always warned me about anyone connected to Bushala and even claimed that you were one of his “people”. I had often wondered but now see that you are clearly independent of his influence.

    These articles have really opened my eyes to what is going on with our city and even in our world. Our family owns multiple properties and a business in Fullerton so I really don’t wish to publicize my name but I do want to thank you and Barry for your hard work trying to make Fullerton a better place to live.

    If always telling the truth or just not misleading the public was a condition for holding public office in Fullerton, the dais would be empty.

    Sad but true.

    Mr. Imbriano will probably always continue to be there fighting for others no matter what. I know Joe. Its just how he is wired, He’s a the kind of person you you either really, really love or really, really hate. He’s really, really intense and there is no doubt about it. Fact is he has had a tremendous impact on this community already and I know he will continue to do so.

    • #35 by Anonymous on June 30, 2016 - 3:58 pm

      Pretty sure he’s just annoyed a bunch of people. Not sure if you’d call that a “tremendous impact.”

      • #36 by Anonymous on June 30, 2016 - 9:56 pm

        He has pissed alot of people off and at the same time woken alot of people up. He has also stopped alot of shit from going through. Give the guy credit. He has earned it. he may not get elected but he may not even need to.

      • #37 by Nice Try on June 30, 2016 - 11:03 pm

        Well the Chief of Police does not instigate bogus charges and conduct a totally bogus investigation against activist Mr. Levinson, get the majority of the city council to participate in the attempted frame-up because he was and is only an annoyance to him and city hall. Instead the truth is that Mr. Levinson has had a tremendous impact stopping the forces of corruption and crony capitalism in the city of Fullerton.

        • #38 by Joe Imbriano on June 30, 2016 - 11:54 pm

          You can say that again. Practically every scam from the DCCSP to the Summit house deal, College Town, to the Pollys project to the Hunt Library all of the tracks. Barry was right there making sure the residents were represented. I know because I was right there next to him. What does he get? Fired by Bruce Whitaker with NO REASON GIVEN. Maybe we ought to fire Bruce Whitaker in November. I hear Jesus Silva is running. South Fullerton isn’t so locked up for Bruce anymore.

          • #39 by Fullerton's Conscience on July 1, 2016 - 7:30 am

            All the above has been stopped cold or delayed and Mr. Levinson has lead the charge to derail all of the above with a bright light shown on these terrible agenda items. For if they were so good for the people of Fullerton, Mr. Levinson’s rationale and logical objections would not have stopped council from passing any of them let alone all of them. Mr Levinson and this blog run by Mr. Imbriano has had a chilling impact on the crony capitalistic plans of our city government. The efforts of Levinson and Imbriano should inspire others to start to come to council meetings and speak out against those elected and appointed representatives who choose not to act in the best interests of the people of Fullerton.

              Or . . .

              These two have propogated wild conspiracy theories about Fullerton that had no foundation in reality.

              It’s really easy to take credit for stopping things that never even came close to starting.

              I wholeheartedly agree with Fullerton’s Conscience, as these two men have kept the truth out there front and center, by exposing these political puppets at every turn, as well as the special interests puppeteers that pull their strings who pay to get them re-elected, right past the unsuspecting Fullerton residents who are pre-occupied working and raising families and are too busy to notice that the candidates endorsed by the public safety unions are merely posing as patriotic councilman and women, and instead are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

              Sloppy Joe’s posts have consistently badgered Barry and Joe for merely standing up to these charlatan’s charade much the same way that a school yard bully tries to intimidate those that they perceive as a threat and they want to intimidate into silence.

              Won’t happen.


              p.s. I’m not Joe or Barry. Just someone who cares.

              • #42 by Sloppy Joe on July 1, 2016 - 2:56 pm

                Fullerton Lover, I’m just misunderstood.

                Kudos and applause for Joe and Barry for standing up for what they believe . . . And even taking their lumps for it. That’s noble behavior.

                If my comments are consistent, they’re only consistently mocking Joe for having a sloppy relationship with the truth.

                Like reporting and never correcting that the City planned to sell a library for $1,300,000.

                Or starting that the world is flat because water falls off of a sphere.

                Things like that.

                • #43 by Fullerton Lover on July 1, 2016 - 5:45 pm

                  “Instead of plotting conspiracy theories based on lies you recklessly repeat, why don’t you just try not being a dick for a change? 139,999 people in Fullerton manage to do so every single day. You can, too.

                  If you think you can run a library for less money, I’m sure everyone would love to hear how, but no one is going to help you or listen if you treat everyone like inferiors”

                  Sloppy Joe, instead of mean spirited remarks like this one you directed at the messenger (Joe), you should be asking yourself why the city of Fullerton is so hard pressed for money that they can’t even afford to fund the operating costs, not the building,not the land, the operating costs, to staff a children’s library?


                  Yet the same city council that couldn’t seem to find any money in the city budget for the past three years for our children to enjoy the library that they had, this same city council can somehow magically conjure up a couple of million dollars of our money to repay the public safety union employees who funded their political ambitions?



                  Maybe I should have given my children a bigger allowance so that they’ll be able to counter influence the public safety unions money, when they start closing down parks that they can’t afford to police.

                  Ooops! Too late! Check out this article about a children’s park named Richman Park which appeared in the latest Fullerton Observer…

                  Why has the city allowed Richman Park
                  to get so bad? The park is closed at sundown
                  yet there are homeless people sleeping
                  there on tables and benches all night,
                  every night. They make a lot of noise and
                  drink and smoke all night. There are
                  always shopping carts all over the park full
                  of junk these people collect.
                  The gangsters are there a lot also. They
                  tag the walls of the restrooms and garages
                  of surrounding homes.
                  A lot of people living around the park
                  have to go to work each morning and
                  have to listen to the noise all night from
                  the people fighting and partying in the
                  There is a motor home that parks there
                  all day and night with 4 little girls and
                  their mom living in it. That can’t be good
                  for them.
                  I’m afraid to go there, even in daylight.
                  I would never take my kids there. We
                  never see any police enforcing the laws.
                  Are they afraid or just don’t want to be
                  bothered with the mess?
                  Something must be done. Thanks for

                      I didn’t miss the point.

                      You did!

                      The reason that Fullerton has safe and sane fireworks on the 4th of July, wasn’t due to anyone on the Fullerton city council, it was actually implemented after Measure X was voted into law by the residents of Fullerton in 2012.


                      I tried to help you from spreading your manure by asking you to start showing your references or whatever evidence you have that supports your position, in order to save you from further personal embarrassment, because like I said before, basically, I’m just someone that cares about people, and it seems important to me to facilitate getting the truth out there so Fullerton residents can make objective choices, rather than having to digest the repetitive rhetoric you seem to be fond of spewing.

          Now Brucey boy. He was clearly a fake from the start. But Tony B and his Klan bought off on him that he was different and would do what the few wanted, not the majority.

          Politicians are politicians. they will never change. They will just make you think they will change. Hillary for example. She will say whatever she needs to say to the group she is talking too. She is a total fraud. But will people see that?. Nope.

Now thanks to the FFFF crew, Fitzpringle on the council is like a huge ficus tree with its roots in the sewer system with Bruce sitting on the manhole cover especially after Tony’s plants voted to make her mayor for the ballot. Watch for Larry Bennett to emerge from under the manhole cover Bruce has been sitting on for four years any day now.

              LOL it’s always a conspiracy in the making. You know that. The only time I saw joy and happiness was when Tony bought his boys Travis and Bruce into office. He was on top of the world. He was the ruler and dictator of Fullerton. Until Travis opened his mouth during the first meeting. After that meeting, his political career was over. Never to be seen from again. Then Tony slipped back into hiding to run Fullerton from his backyard with his weed plants and his roosters, smoking his joints, dreaming of big things. I’m sure Tony has bought his way into the backdoor again and is paying people off for lucrative real estate deals again.

    What is so very sad is that Bruce Whitaker was given a detailed analysis about corruption and malfeasance by his own appointee, Mr. Levinson concerning the Fullerton Golf Course. Mr Levinson also stopped the DCCSP two years ago and the 20 year lease extension for Summit House Restaurant through the year 2060 this year as well. Mr Whitaker could have used all of this as leverage to affect change and reform in Fullerton Government and politics as part of his campaign to get re-elected. Instead he terminates Levinson and does not even have the decency to give him a reason. What a guy…What a friend… What a crooked, phony politician.

Thank you for exposing yourself as the fraud you have been for 6 years. But he wants us to pity him because he is only one person and what can only one person do. His motto has been poor me, poor poor pitiful me, I am only one person. You should not expect me to make a difference. What a bunch of total BS Mr. Whitaker. You want to get re-elected based on all your failures. What a bizarre platform for re-election.

    I guess Mr. Levinson was too effective in his volunteer role to be allowed to continue as a Park and Recreation Committee member. You had to get rid of him. And now we have to get rid of you this November.

The posts on this site provide documentation supporting their positions. They are fact based. Now look at the opposition, never refuting anything but always good for name calling and character assassination. Please provide one statement that Mr. Levinson has made that is a lie. Back in the day in my neighborhood we would just say the following: YOU GOT NOTHING! Thank you Mr. Levinson and Mr. Imbriano. What you do is a public service. What those few do, continually trash talking against the both of you is a public disgrace. No one Fullerton Police Officer spent a night in jail for murdering an innocent unarmed human being.

        ….listening to the version of the story that Reality Is tells, makes it sound like the CHP took down Charlie Manson and his followers, rather than a couple of unarmed teenagers who were seen doing doughnuts in another town by officers who weren’t in uniform and were following them in an unmarked car.

            by the red and blue lights maybe? There are undercover all over this country everyday doing a job with no issues. Just like this one. No issues. A bad guy decided to ram cars and then ram another car. Doesn’t mater if it was cops or people with concealed carry permits. They had a right to protect themselves from death and they did. Again, I say good job. No one has to die from a moron driving like an idiot. Big boy choice won the big boy prize this time.

              …and like I said earlier, if that officer in picture 13 of 13 is chasing me down a dead end street, I wouldn’t believe for a second that he was with law enforcement trying to pull me over to cite me for exhibition of speed.

    The reality is that we do not know exactly what took place in Fullerton the other night.

    It would be so nice to be able to always take the word of a police officer as the truth and move forward. Unfortunately, it has been proven many times that police officers do not always tell the truth. I will withhold my opinion of the shooting until I know all the facts of this case.

    I do know one thing for sure based on the information given out by the Fullerton Police Department spokesperson.

    We were told that the victim left Santa Fe Springs driving on side streets at speeds nearing 90 mph. We have also been told that the CHP chased them from Santa Fe Springs to Fullerton in an unmarked car…a distance of about 15 miles.

    I believe this kind of chase endangers innocent lives. It makes no sense that the CHP followed the suspect all this distance. A little concern for innocent drivers and pedestrians who could have been hurt by the CHP’s reckless pursuit (in my opinion) should have been in order. If you want to track them down, use a helicopter not an undercover vehicle going almost 90 miles an hour.

    Once again we see braun win out over brains and common sense. These types of pursuits especially for non-violent suspects needs to stop now.

  22. #114 by Sad But Very True on July 8, 2016 - 12:38 pm

    Bruce Whitaker had carefully crafted his public image as someone who supposedly is concerned how public money is spent over 2 decades. Yet he totally ignores a 5 million dollar waste of money brought to him, no less, by his own appointee. Instead of thanking his appointee for doing such a thorough
    job on Parks and Recreation as well as leading the charge against undemocratic DCCSP agenda items, he terminates him instead.

    Then Council member Whitaker along with all other council members, votes to disenfranchise those living in downtown Fullerton. He has accomplished this by voting for Districting Map 8A, better known as the developer get rich quick act.

    Council member Whitaker’s continued silence is understandable as he realizes that he has destroyed 20 years of public trust by his own actions and/or lack thereof. You reap what you sow. This has resulted in the public career of one Council member Bruce Whitaker burning to the ground just like a meteor entering our atmosphere. He has more than earned a ticket off of our city council. I along with many other Fullertonians look forward to Council member Whitaker’s forced public retirement.

  23. #115 by We Deserve Much Better on July 11, 2016 - 12:48 am

    It is now so very simple for the voters in the city of Fullerton. All they have to do is throw out all the incumbents.

    Remember they all voted to disenfranchise the people living in downtown Fullerton and

    Remember that they all ignored a 4 to 5 million dollar problem with the Fullerton Golf Course and

    Finally, they all were ready to vote to approve a two decade extension through 2060 for the Summit House Restaurant as a Consent Item with no planned public discussion whatsoever.

    Each one of these individually is a big scandal but together it spells CORRUPTION, CONTEMPT, CONCEIT AND CRONY CAPITALISM.

    Expect the city elites to be especially vicious and deceitful this election season. I know they have already been vicious and deceitful toward their political enemies but remember that bad people have no shame and no moral boundaries.

    I ask all Fullertonians to keep your eyes on the prize, which is to take back our city from the developers, the city employee unions and the unelected bureaucrats.

    We know have learned that OC Supervisor, Shawn Nelson is behind a self-serving move to get term limits for OC Supervisors extended for his own selfish benefit. I thought we just voted to have an ethics committee for the county government. If they do not look into this, we know they are a political waste of time and money.

    Supervisor Nelson should be ashamed of himself. Please send a resounding message to Supervisor Nelson that we have had enough of his contemptible leadership and we want him gone from all elected office. Heaven forbid if he ever gets a judgeship. Good riddance to him and his Fullerton associates, Mayor Fitzgerald, Planning Commissioner Larry Bennett and Council member want a be, Leland ( I’ve done next to nothing to get the Fox Theatre reopened in 10 plus years) Wilson, but he is making progress on a parking structure and office space in the Fox Block.

    If someone with the following educational and working background:
    MBA with a Major in Accounting and with honors,
    Manager experience with an international CPA firm Ernst and Young,
    Over a decade of Internal auditor experience with a fortune 500 company,
    and passed the CPA exam,
    presented to you a detailed, well documented analysis that showed that actions taken by the city resulted in the loss over a 20 year period of 4 to 5 million dollars, would you be interested in learning more. Well that person with all that education and professional experience was yours truly, Barry Levinson. The person who was directly given that information along with all the other council members was Council member Bruce Whitaker, the man who appointed me to not one term but two terms to the Park and Recreation Committee.

    Mr. Whitaker that self-proclaimed champion of limited government and supposed fiduciary overseer of the Fullerton taxpayer’s money, did absolutely none of the above. To this day he has been silent on this issue, both to me and on the dais during city council meetings.

    What Bruce Whitaker did do was make false vague negative innuendos to a third party, the Fullerton Observer about why he terminated me.

    Well this is just one of the many good things I did as a Park and Recreation Committee appointee of Council member Bruce Whitaker.

    Did he ask me one question or want to discuss this with me?

    Did he bring it up at any of the council meetings?

    Did he even thank me for my service to the city and our community?

    What did he do?
    He canned me from the Park and Recreation Committee. He did this without any mention leading up to this action that he was even the least bit not satisfied with my 5 plus year performance on that committee. A committee that I never missed a committee meeting. Yet what was the reason he gave me for the termination. He has to this very day never told me directly why he let me go.

    Every word above is the complete truth. Does a man such as this deserve your vote this November?

    I report, you decide!

    • #129 by Reality Is..... on July 22, 2016 - 2:29 pm

      I get your point Barry.

      My point to you is this. If a decision made 20 years ago turns out to be wrong or the plan doesn’t play out as expected, do you expect people to be hung now if they had the best interest in mind when they made that decision?

      It’s like the City Manager that hired Pat McKinley. Years and years of good policing and good times in Fullerton. Then one incident and it’s a bad hire and we should hang that old City Manager today for decisions made with good intent 20 years ago.

      So yea, maybe that decision was bad back then but get over it now. You cry and whine and complain about everything, everything possible, never giving a compliment to any city employee ever about anything. So like I’ve said in many posts to you, when do you want people to listen to you? Al the time? Some of the time? It’s that old cry wolf adage. If you finally cry wolf and it means something, no one is going to be listening anyways.

      I’ll give you credit. You bring up some good points each year. But I’ve told you before. No one listens to you or Joe or Tony because you spew so much nonsense and personal biased idiotic beliefs the other 99% of the time. That’s why you had to go. You left Bruce no choice.

  28. #130 by The Omen on August 23, 2016 - 1:06 pm

    Listen up you guys. You are all a bunch of fucktards. You actually think Whitaker is some sort of statesman? Remember when the star of Fullerton’s Kabuki political theater, career politician Bruce Whitaker wanted to form an audit committee? Remember who was not invited to play in the sandbox?

    I’m no fan of Levinson but let me tell you why he didn’t want Levinson on that committee and why he fired his big loudmouthed ass. Levinson is a ballsy smart guy and with full access to the city’s CAFRS, Levinson’s trained eyes in the right company would have found enough shit on these clowns to make Bell look like a fucking lemonade stand. Where the fuck do you think all the money has been going for decades as the roads and pipes are all fucked up? Do you know how many people have had a gag order on them at city hall?

    Do you know why they will do everything in their power to keep Imbriano a hundred miles away from the real sets of books and closed sessions? Have you seen what Joe is capable of? He is fucking batshit crazy when it comes to exposing things. Its no wonder Whitaker is walking around with a set of depends on his fat ass trying to set up a defensive line for a wishbone play.

    Bruce has been playing ball for years with these fucks. This was a great article but it was way too easy on this greasy guy. You don’t know the half of this shit.

    Bruce knew about all the shit and then some. Yeah an audit committee would never pass the council so instead he handed a little glimpse of the tricky dick accounting to disheveled Sean Paden and his numbers guy Curlee. Bruce had them play around with the Brea Dam figures just long enough for them to fuck it all up and let Flory dickslapp Sean and Curlee around enough so they would go home with their tails between their legs for good. Now they both have forgotten about the whole thing that Bruce buried alive and now its time for smiley faces and bullshit for November. Sean Paden and Ryan Cantor are the two crutches for the housewife that they want you to fall in love with.

    Cluelessness is her main attribute making her safe from Joe’s vitriol. I highly doubt Imbriano will be able to control himself long enough to lay off of her. That is why Bruce is working with the bosses to run her. She is perfectly establishment certified safe.

    Gapinsky will try to siphon votes away from Joe because they are scared to death of the remote possibility, yes remote, that he could get enough people behind him to actually get elected. Is it likely? Perhaps not. Is it possible? Perhaps it is and that will be a fucking shit show to die for as he would blow open the decades of shit buried behind those walls. Bruce lined up his tools to throw this woman into the ring who is that same woman who with her fucking xenophobic mommy, helped install Fitzgerald 4 years ago.

    You actually think Bruce Whitaker is some sort of a hero? Barry Levinson and Alfredo Gutierrez almost went to jail for nothing and Barry eventually got shit canned because Bruce didn’t want to deal with what Levinson kept screaming about. You know the millions of dollars and the backroom deals, the ones Red White and Blue Pat’s daughter has no clue about?

    The original plan was to run Sean but Sean doesn’t have the balls or the bucks to go after Imbriano so Bruce put Sean Paden in charge of Shuff’s daughter’s campaign to ramrod a total politcal no show that will follow his orders. Gapisnky has never uttered a word at city hall and is clueless on the issues. Bruce, Sean, and Cantor are her handlers.

    Shuff just got her daughter the Royce endorsement for all the favors she has done for Royce over the years. Fitzgerald gets the Royce endorsement for all the developer connections she brings to Pringle, Bruce gets the Royce endorsement for his hands off of Fitzgerald for four years. Bennett gets the Royce support for getting in the way of real reform.

    Gapinsky’s mommy is endorsing Fitzgerald so that tells you everything you need to know. Royce is endorsing Bruce, Gapisnksy, Bennet and Fitzgerald. That tells you all that Fullerton is fucked and that tells everyone why these jerkoffs and their stooges want Joe nowhere Fullerton near city hall.

    The truth here is that Joe needs to run for Congress and throw Royce the fuck out. He should just bypass all these fucking morons and send Royce to Guantanemo for a long vacation.

          I think that Fullerton voters should be asking themselves if they believe that you would equally represent the interests of those residents who happen to be of the Democratic party, which just happens to now be the majority of residents in Fullerton?

            Fullerton lover,

            I am a Union Ironworker. You are making connections where there are none to be made. I am not my mother. I wanted to speak to whomever is posting false things about me. If they were interested in the truth they would have contacted me, but it seems like they prefer to make false allegations and make connections where there are none. If you choose to continue to post things that are not true, then that is on you. Thank you, and best of luck to you Joe.

            • #154 by Fullerton Lover on September 5, 2016 - 5:55 pm

              FY to Susan Gapinski…

              This is a political blog and you are now running for political office. Questions won’t always be from people that you know. The information that I’ve posted have been articles that you yourself or your own Mother have posted for public consumption, so I’m a little fuzzy on how you think that I’m posting information that is not true.

              If the information that your family is publishing isn’t true, feel free to refute same with a post of your own that shows everyone I’m a liar.

              p.s. What was the “special prize’ that your members such as Janny Meyer or Jennifer Fitzgerald eligible to win if they answered your question about what was in the illegal-immigrant activist tool kit?

              My money was on a pinata.

        • #155 by Fullerton Lover on September 5, 2016 - 4:37 pm

          …one other question I’m dying to know is exactly what was the “special prize” that you gave new members of your group for correctly answering the question you posed for them about who can tell me what is on the activist tool-kit and what we as the blican women can do?”

          Every family has their favorite season; some like the heat of summer or the crispness of fall or the warmth of winter, but the fourth season, my favorite, comes around every two years and that is election season! It is a time for togetherness for my family, walking precincts, registering voters, stuffing envelopes, making phone calls; it doesn’t get much better than that. I am getting excited just thinking about it. You might be wondering why I am talking about it now, so early in the year, I’ll tell you why, it will be here sooner than you think and we need to be prepared. I liken it to a party, I liken everything to a party, the more prepared for the party the better it turns out, and turn out is what we are all about…voter turnout that is!
          Last month’s program was very sobering. The issue of illegal immigration is not going away anytime soon, and after hearing Susan Tully from the Federation for American Immigration Reform talk it has become even more evident that we need to keep our elected officials feet to the flames, so to speak. F.A.I.R. has a very informative website that I suggest you visit, www. The website has a link called the “activist tool-kit” for those who are concerned about illegal immigration but do not know what to do about it. Much of the activist tool-kit contains actions that can be done from the comfort of your own home. How great is that! I will have a special prize for anyone who can tell me what is on the activist tool-kit and what we as a club can do.
          One thing that I am proud of, being a federated woman, is the support the federation gives us. It is even in out bylaws: “Article II-object 2. To increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.” (OCFRW bylaws, Dec.1 2012). This is evident in our own club seeing as we have a city council member, school board members, and central committee members in our club. That is pretty impressive if you ask me.

          • #156 by Susan Gapinski on September 5, 2016 - 5:48 pm

            The prize was probably a plant or something like that. I also had a meeting about common core where we invited Dr. Pletka and Robert Hammond OCBOE to discuss the pros and cons of common core. That one was insightful as well. We bring programs to our members to educate them about issues. Please keep your eye out for meeting notices, non members are welcome.

            • #157 by Fullerton Lover on September 5, 2016 - 10:15 pm

              That membership in your organization brings up another question.

              How is it that you can have a club whose membership is limited to women?

              I thought that that was illegal to exclude people by gender in a public organization?

              • #158 by Danny Boy on September 6, 2016 - 12:24 pm

                We have membership clubs by race? What’s the difference.

              From: Denis Ian

              Our schools are in a terrible tilt, and they’re about to topple on our children.

              At the moment, the rarest word in all of education is “kids”. And the most ignored phrase in this giant jungle of jargon is “common sense”.

              Long-revered pedagogical precepts have been blue-penciled by classroom-allergic theorists leveraged by profiteers who see public schools as the next sustainable profit-producing motherlode. And the political class … put into office by all of us … has mocked our vote and deserted our children in a flash of cash.

              Never has American education been in such a moment of willful destruction of revered pedagogical principles. Never before have the wishes and concerns of those most vested in public schools been so summarily dismissed by bureaucratic double-speak and political bunk.

              Beyond the view of the current skirmishes now underway across an array of states, is an emerging reality that … in a very short while … this reform will have razed an American institution to a mound of rubble.

              And in its place … for as far as the eye can see … will stand drive-thru learning centers offering kiosk-educations from a B. F. Skinner touch-screen that will supply the finger-pointer with all they need to succeed in a life of rich monotony.

              That’s what your now titling schools are going to look like. And that is your kid’s purgatory. Dante would have had devilish fun imagining the distinct horror levels of academic hell that await children in their most crucial years. The recent past showcases the scary future.

              Kindergarten has already been invaded by classroom magistrates who see nothing wrong at all in shoving 70 month-olds into a rush-hour of academic traffic … because some basement gnome alleges it’s the ideal moment to vaccinate them with “grit” and “rigor”. And these academic tykes have no need for recess or songs or giggles … because those would be indicators of unseriousness. And education is, above all else, extra-serious business. Even for cherubs still ill-at-ease tying their own sneakers.

              The elementary years seem destined to be the Tablet Years. The Mario Bros. Educational Principles will rule the day as students win points and pile up Magic No. 2 Pencils as they are prompted from one level to the next. Competency based education will erase all of those annoying human variables and every learner who reaches Level Six will see their names glitter in on-screen pixie dust. And an 8 X 10 screen-shot of that conquering moment will become the new diploma.

              By the time they arrive at middle school they’ll be thoroughly “Skinnered” … and on-screen accountability and specially-tapered curriculum designs will suffocate all of those aggravating teenage twitches and quirks. Schools will … above all else … homogenize this stage of maturity so that no nail stands up … and individuality is presented as antithetical narcissism that is thoroughly unacceptable. Creativity will be assessed as a day-dreaming activity … time consuming musing more symptomatic of a sloth than of genius.

              High school will become the sorting years … the Divergent Time … when, at long last, the future of every young adult will become crystal clear. Youngsters will be endlessly nudged in this or that career pathway … justified by the overwhelming mounds of data that can be Hansel and Greteled all the way back to the days when joy was first run out of their very brand-new lives.

              And at every level, parents will lose more and more control of their children. They will be less and less invited by school authorities to take part in the joy-remembering rites of passage we all associate with growing up. And that is all by design because the very last thing these new educational absolutists want is any mother or father acting as though they have any regency at all over their own child’s education.

              Orwell yourself beyond the moment and come to terms with what awaits us all on the horizon of touch-screen education and data-driven assessments. Huxley yourself into the world of tomorrow when your children will have been programmed and plugged into lifetime situations based not on their passions but on some algorithmic prescription burped out by some electronic ouija mother-board.

              If you are doubting of this, examine what the last half-decade has wrought. In the blink of an eye, schools have been systematically transformed, alarmed parents tattooed as adversaries, and politicians have morphed into carnival barkers for every profiteer determined to get their slice of the Big Education pie.

              And all the while, half-a-generation has already endured this child-abusing, educational malpractice … as they are guinea-pigged into blazing trails in the brave new world of scholastic madness.

              And that is the great tilt. What are you going to do about it?

              And if you decide to do nothing … then stand ready to watch their lives topple into misery in this brave new world.

              Denis Ian

            “The website has a link called the “activist tool-kit” for those who are concerned about illegal immigration but do not know what to do about it.”

            If that is the case, why did you accept an endorsement from Rep. Ed Royce, who now has a solid grade of “F” from NumbersUSA, which tracks the voting record of elected officials on illegal immigration.

            Take a look, Ms. Gapinski:

            Question to you: Because you accepted Ed Royce’s endorsement, can it be assumed that you share the same stance on illegal immigration?

            Question to Ms. Gapinski: Because you accepted Ed Royce’s endorsement, can it be assumed that you share the same stance on illegal immigration? Or, do you disagree with Ed Royce on this matter?

            “One thing that I am proud of, being a federated woman, . . . . This is evident in our own club seeing as we have a city council member, school board members, and central committee members in our club. That is pretty impressive if you ask me.”

            So, the common thread, that of being a particular gender and for which no one has any control over, being a woman puts you in the same category as Jennifer Fitzgerald, Janny Meyer, Bev Berryman, Hilda Sugarman, Lynn Thornily, Barbara Kilponen & Marilyn Buchi. These women have all gone out of their way to irradiate children and teachers in Fullerton. Hilda Sugarman has even stated that she wants kids to have these wireless devices 24/7! They have all turned their backs on the kids. Parents’ Voice founder, MJ Noor, has stated that wireless in schools is “extremely dangerous.”

            Then, there is Jennifer Fitzgerald. You must be uninformed or okay with selling off the city of Fullerton to developers, you must be okay with someone that votes to give raises to the union and creating a $ 2.5 M budget deficit over two years. You must be okay with a woman who votes to locate a homeless shelter in close proximity to a school and residential apartments. I could go on for quite awhile, but I won’t.

            Ms. Gapinski, I guess we know what you are for since you support these individuals that are doing to harm, not only to the Fullerton children but also to the residents.

            And, you are so proud, because you are a federated “woman.” Something you had no control over, nothing you earned, nothing you worked to attain. Simply, you are a woman.

            • #162 by Fullerton Lover on September 7, 2016 - 10:00 pm

              I think it’s important to hold Ms. Gapinski’s “feet to the fire” (her term, not mine) on why she is espousing all of her Fullerton Republican Women’s group members like Janny Meyer, or Jennifer Fitzgerald, to try and win prizes by learning to become activists from a group (F.A.I.R.) whose founder is a white nationalist zero population growth eugenics advocate?

                Because Gapinksi and her coffee clutch has been ignoring what I have laid out for years-Yes these women have all ignored all of this for years and years and years. Since you bring up eugenics well. I have for years at council, school board meetings, tens of thousands of fliers on windhsheilds, I have stood on the sidewalks in front of schools getting the police called on me over and over, roamed the halls in Sacramento, rallied lobbied and yes they have officially all turned their backs on the children. And they call me names? How about those apples? No pun intended-read this and weep because it is irrefutable evidence that the entire corrupt morally bankrupt establishment in Fullerton is gonna have all over their face as it becomes reality for tens of thousands of school children–

        • #164 by Anonymous on September 8, 2016 - 3:03 pm

          You love Fullerton so much that you never or almost never even attend a city council or a planning meeting, let alone going on the record speaking out in front of these city bodies.

          I am always just a little suspicious when someone has so little direct involvement and then decides to run. Is it not true that you were recruited to run by Bruce Whitaker and that is why you were one of the last candidates to take out and file your papers to run for office. I also heard that Congressman Ed Royce has endorsed you. I have not heard one thing about any of your positions or qualification for office yet Ed Royce apparently does not need to know those very important items. I guess being Pat Shuff’s daughter is all Congressman Shuff needed to know. This proves that in the world of dirty politics, it is not what you know but “who you know” that counts.

    Please don’t dignify a whack job like Joe Imbriano by engaging with him. The man actually believes the moon landing was a hoax. He advocates imprecatory prayer. He thinks that Wi-Fi and the drought are tools of the government. A bigger conspiracy theorizing nut case has never entered the Fullerton council chambers. He’s pretty much good for comic relief and that’s about it. I mean his only ally is the arrogant, pompous, angry bully, Barry Levinson. Does anymore need to be said than that?

    • #174 by Fullerton Lover on September 6, 2016 - 8:24 am

      Joe and Barry are amongst the only men that I know that speak the truth at any Fullerton city council meetings I’ve been to.

      That’s why they continually are demonized by those that don’t.

      The dishonest ones think that by sullying Joe and Barry’s reputations that residents won’t listen to them and will disregard their words.

      That would be a big mistake because Joe and Barry are honest and sincere in their desire to truly improve Fullerton for the better, and I hope that residents are starting to see through the charade that these dishonest politicians have been hoisted on Fullerton residents for decades.

      • #175 by Danny Boy on September 6, 2016 - 12:22 pm

        Come on Fullerton Lover. Truth is a relative term with Joe and Barry. Even you know that. If you said that they speak their opinions, no matter what that opinion is, you would get more credibility. Anything and everything they say can be disputed and debated, over and over and over. They say that there has never been a Fullerton employee, or leader or government official, that has done good work. Is that really the truth? Or just an extremely biased opinion. That opinion alone is why neither will never be elected to any position of trust within our City.

        • #176 by Fullerton Lover on September 6, 2016 - 10:06 pm

            She liked to sample the tube steak. Then when she was sampling like 5 tube steaks all over the PD, she got mad and made up all kinds of false claims. Baur retired and is living the good life and getting his tube steak drained over and over from her willingly. City said well that’s a large amount of consensual cum we better just settle and give her some cash to buy some fake boobies. Everyone lover happily ever after. Did you find any articles yet on how much the city paid Sissy and Ramos for their wrongful termination claims? I heard it was full retirement benefits plus all back pay plus $500k.

                How do you know that he sexually assaulted anyone? Or did you just make that up? She wanted that tube steak and took it many times from many different people. Once they tall tossed her nasty azz aside, the got all hurt emotionally and made false claims. Once her lawyer could tie it to a court case indirectly, the city had to pay. Simple as that. You ever been banging someone and then dumped em? They get pretty mad but they sure liked the tube steak and salt malt when they were taking it. So thanks for checking my retirement facts. Bair did nothing wrong, that’s why he wasn’t charged. The City just paid to get it over with due to the ties to the court case. Next? Anything current or all still old stuff? Did you find anything on the payouts to Sissy and Ramos yet?

                  Don’t you think it’s sort of a irony, albeit a dark rich one, that Fullerton Police Chief Daniel Hughes, would assign Fullerton Police Detective Ronald Bair to investigate sexual assault crimes?

                    You should write books Fullerton Lover.

                    He assigned him after the false allegations of sexual assault? You are implying that. Even though you know it’s not true. You like to write in that style. Too late. I figured you out long ago.

                    This is just one of about 4 so called incidents of innocent people being smeared from years and years ago by you. They were all found innocent or never charged, as I said they all would.

                    Anything more current yet? Or just old things? Does that mean DannyBoy is doing a great job as Chief but you are like Joe and Barry, and will never admit good work by city employees?

          • #183 by Danny Boy on September 9, 2016 - 9:13 am

            Nothing surprising there. Police work. Always pushing the legal limits to seek justice. It’s never perfect and 99% of the time the people are guilty. Human’s will always have a 1-5% mistake rate. Is what it is. If it was my family member shot dead, I really don’t care what they do to get justice. OC is a weird place to be involved in the justice system. LA is much better, San Bernardino also. Jail informants have been used for 100 years. OC is just part of the pussification of America and wants to say informants aren’t good. Is what it is. Just another tool. You really think they needed that extra step anyways for the Seal Beach murders? Nope. Didn’t need anything else but the humans involved wanted max justice for that whacky killer. Now he will just sit in jail for life instead of death. you ok with that? If so, that’s fine. The families aren’t. But you don’t care about victims anyways. It’s 2016. It’s all about criminals having more rights than victims now. It’s all about homeless and drug addicts and transients having more rights than us and our children. Is what it is. Anything more recent yet? LOL

    If you believe a whack job doubts the lunar landing, then you have countless of scientists, physicists, engineers and intellectuals disagreeing with you. Have you used your critical thinking skills to research this issue or just believe everything because you WATCHED it on TV? Many people are lazy TV drones and not independent thinkers.

    Now the issue of Microwave Wireless Radiation- Have you researched all the scientific evidence substantiated by engineers, scientists, PhDs, medical doctors, independent researchers, nurses, ethicists and a myriad of intelligent critical thinkers with peer reviewed evidenced publications or are you again just believing what the mass media is feeding your brain?

    As far as advocating Imprecatory Prayer, do you know exactly how Biblical it is? King David, the psalmist most associated with imprecatory verses such as Psalm 55:15, 69:28, and 109:8, often used phrases like, “may their path be dark and slippery, with the angel of the LORD pursuing them” (Psalm 35:6) and “O God, break the teeth in their mouths; tear out the fangs of the young lions, O LORD!” (Psalm 58:6).

    Psalms 7, 35, 55, 58, 59, 69, 109, and 139 were written by David to ask God to bring judgment upon his enemies. (The other two imprecatory psalms, 79 and 137, were written by Asaph and an unknown psalmist.) These prayers were written not so much to exact revenge upon one’s enemies, but rather to emphasize God’s ABHORRENCE of evil, His SOVEREIGNTY over all mankind, and His DIVINE protection of His chosen people.

    So why is Joe the best Fullerton City Council Candidate and why is the establishment opposing him? Because Joe honors the truth. I am limited by time and space to innumerate the reasons why he needs to be on the council, in a nutshell: he has far more integrity, honesty and knowledgeable on the issues to represent the citizens of Fullerton. Joe follows the evidence no matter where it leads. There is no such thing as a perfect candidate but I sure don’t want another self serving politician but a trustworthy courageous man having the tax payers best interests and certainly aware of critical health issues affecting us….

    • #188 by Anonymous on September 7, 2016 - 5:17 am

      Joe has unmistakenly taken on a politically dangerous model. The model of “following the truth wherever it leads” is never a strategy employed by any politician, but rather one followed by only one who has the purest of intentions. In this particular case, he also possesses the will and courage to stay the course. That is why the establishment is so worried and they have good reason to be.

        Y’all have a weird definition of what truth is.

        Hint: thinking the world is flat is not believing in something true.

          What does believing in flat earth have anything to do with running for city council? Joe tells the truth and will do what’s right for the good people of Fullerton, unlike Jennifer Fizgerald and Larry Bennett. You’re just a liberal punk who can’t stand the truth. Let me guess, you also believe in Darwinism.

      Agreed. He may be well ahead of his time and time will tell. In just a few short months we will know if Fullerton is ready for real leadership or just simply more of the same.

        Ahead of his time? More like stuck in the Bronze Age.

    when you say the establishment is opposing Joe,
    you should probably replace the word “establishment” with the phrase “anyone with a pulse.”

    I met Joe years ago and when you first meet him you might think he’s out there a bit. What makes him different is he is so far ahead of most people on the curve that it takes people a while to catch up, when you do the lightbulb goes off. This guy knows his stuff in many areas and works many hours away from his family to ultimately help his family as well as ours.
    Our current council is a joke and only concerned about their pocketbooks. He is the kind of guy every city needs to keep things in order. His honesty is brutal to those that have not done right and I hope he continues his work to expose the corruption within this city.
    It’s just a matter of time before the City Of Fullerton is in the news for corruption like many other officials in other cities throughout the LA and Orange counties have been.

    Thank you all for the kind words. I appreciate your support. This town is so full of good people just waiting to rise to the occasion. the yard signs are coming.

      Great, now we will know which of our neighbors support an idiot who thinks the earth is flat.

    I believe Council member Whitaker removed his long running heading on his Facebook page…

    “Words may lie, but actions will always tell the truth.”

    I wonder why he removed that quote?

    • #202 by Danny Boy on October 23, 2016 - 4:42 pm

      He put up a new one.

      In with the new, out with old and grumpy (Barry).

    Suggested replacement heading for Bruce Whitaker’s Facebook page…
