D5 Supervisor Candidate Julian Davis to Star at Sunday Streets Western Addition, September 9th, 2012, 11AM to 4PM

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

I mean, I assume.

Leave us review:

If you voted for Ed Lee for Mayor, your choice for the next D5 Supervisor is London Breed.*

OTOH, if you voted against Ed Lee for Mayor, your choice for the next D5 Supervisor is Julian Davis. Throw in a couple other choices if you want, but make sure neither one is London Breed or Interim Supervisor and Total Sellout Christine Olague. (Or should I say Christine “8 Washington” Olague? Or should I say Christine “Perjurer Accomplice” Olague?)

Easy Peasy.

Come out and say hi to Julian, I’m sure he’ll be there, this Sunday:

Hey, is PG&E a “Sponsor” of this event, on September 9th, 2012, the two year anniversary of PG&E’s San Bruno Pipeline Explosion, the one that killed eight souls? I think so.

(I wish San Francisco had just an average kind of utility monopoly instead of motherfucking PG&E. Speaking of which,  a while back they inquired about how much it would cost to advertise some PR campaign on this tiny blog. I was like GTFO – I ignored it. Interestingly, presented with a similar offer, the San Francisco Bay Guardian said bring it, and so then PGE’s signature blue banner ads started appearing at SFBG.com, I’m seriously. Ah memories. )

Anyway, see you at Sunday Streets Western Addition 2012.

*I’m sure he’d be delighted to have her on board. Now, she’s a little PO’ed these days about how she kind of got screwed over by Interim Mayor Ed Lee earlier this year, oh and by Willie Brown and Rose Pak and all, but  I’m sure Mayor Lee and his minders would adapt to London’s election swimmingly. (Of course Ed Lie said he would stay out of this particular race and of course now he’s now picking sides in D5, you know, just a few months later, but he also said he wouldn’t run for Mayor. In fact that’s why he became Interim Mayor, based on that other promise. Hence the sobriquet Ed Lie.) Anyway, Republican billionaire Ron Conway threw her a few bucks a little while ago – that’s telling, IMO. Oh, and DiFi just endorsed her, and you can’t get any more Establishment than DiFi I don’t think. 

Here’s One Way, Just One Way, That San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee Can Get Out of that Perjury Thing with Christina Olague

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

Leave us begin:

Mayor Lee, before you decided to file charges for misconduct here, did you talk to any members of the Board of Supervisors about whether or not you should do so?” Kopp asked.

“I did not,” Lee replied.

Minutes later, a bomb threat delayed the hearing for nearly two hours.”

Now, of course Debra Walker could be lying or she could be confused or what have you.

BUT I DON’T THINK SO!

I’m srsly.

So what are we left with?

How about this? What if Mayor Ed Lee discussed Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi with so-called Progressive Supervisor Christina Olague after he decided to file charges.*

See how that works? (Something like, “Oh yeah, I was just patronizing her, trying to make her feel good by asking for advice.”)

And there are three or four other explanations I can think of that would similarly keep Ed Lee out of the clink.

Even though he’s lying.

Now, let’s hear from appointed Supervisor Christina Olague. What would she have had to say, if she hadn’t gotten all flummoxed and, you know, run off to hide in her office?

Either:

1. I may be slow,* but I’m ahead of you; or

2. RUN ED RUN!

You Make The Call.

*You know, assuming that he wasn’t previously nailed down on the exact moment he decided to file charges. 

**Indeed, the least intelligent*** Supervisor we’ve got these days.

***By a country mile…

San Francisco Writer Attacks the “Persecution of Barry Bonds” in Playboy Magazine, April 2009

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

San Francisco-based author and journalist Jonathan Littman has a Playboy Special Report coming out in the upcoming April 2009 issue, but you can read the whole thing right now. Here’s some of the stuff Hugh Hefner’s magazine wants you to know:

- New Information Revealed in an Exclusive Report inside the BALCO Steroids Probe -

- Questions Raised About Real Motives Behind the Investigation

Things seemed much happier on San Francisco’s Barry Bonds Day near the Ferry Building back in 2007. Click to expand:

Playboy Special Report: The Persecution of Barry Bonds

‘Previously unknown facts uncovered in Littman’s report include:

 1.  NOVITZKY’S GAME: How Agent Jeff Novitzky got the green light for an unprecedented multi-million dollar IRS witch hunt. Before the 2003 raid on BALCO, before a single headline was ever written, Littman knew that Agent Novitzky, a then unheralded IRS agent, was obsessed with bringing down Barry Bonds.

Was this Playboy shoot of former mistress Kimberly Bell “one of the most liberating experiences of her life?” Yes, per KTVU. 

 2.  PROTECTING BUD: How Novitzky and the BALCO federal prosecutors seemingly protected Bud Selig and Major League baseball, by not calling the Commissioner or baseball’s owners to testify to their knowledge of rampant steroid use in baseball.

 3.  HIDING THE CLEAR: Previous press reports repeated the government account that The Clear, the centerpiece drug in BALCO was an illegal steroid. Secret grand jury testimony of Jeff Novitzky himself reveals that the government knew early on that it was not an illegal drug.

Barry was interviewed in this issue during a happier time a decade and a half ago. See? That’s why you’ve been saving these things:   

 4.  PERJURY TRAP: The BALCO investigation, far from an attempt to clean up sports, was designed to entrap one man, Barry Bonds.  How the government misled Bonds on the day of his Grand Jury testimony and
appears to have to set up baseball’s all-time home-run king on a perjury charge.

 5.  TRUTH TELLER UNMASKED: At the very time Agent Novitzky was given unprecedented powers and funds to trip up athletes in lies, the Treasury opened an investigation that questioned his credibility. The origins of a five-year-old secret investigation that has already caused the lawyer for one BALCO defendant to ask a judge to set aside a conviction and may imperil the Bonds case.

“For more than five years the national media coverage of the BALCO investigation has been fed by a national obsession to shame, humiliate and prosecute athletes for alleged lies about sports doping. In “The Persecution of Barry Bonds” San Francisco based author and journalist Jonathan Littman takes a different view of the greatest steroid sports scandal in history, one that asks what it was all about, and whether the point of the whole multi-million dollar investigation has been to divert attention from the real villains, Bud Selig, the Commissioner of Major League baseball and the owners who profited for more than a decade by a culture of rampant steroid abuse.  The full report is available online now at http://www.playboy.com/steroids and will be printed in the April issue of Playboy, on newsstands Friday, March 20.

“Littman broke the inside story of BALCO in May 2004 for Playboy in “Gunning for the Big Guy.” He has reported on this story for nearly six years, filing more than fifty stories on the topic.  Littman has met and interviewed the key players in this drama dozens of times over the past half decade. The only journalist to have interviewed three of the four original BALCO investigators, Littman has attended nearly every trial and hearing in the sprawling, massively covered scandal, from the BALCO trials to the hearings in the perjury case against Barry Bonds, to the Clemens Congressional hearing.
