“Black Panties with an Angel’s Face” — Steve Miller
I posted that I would begin revealing incontrovertible evidence that the 2011 Merced County Grand Jury is a cruel hoax on the public for public officials.
There is so much to tell, it’s hard to pick a starting point. So, using the method of eating an elephant one bite at a time, I’ll present pieces of a puzzle that readers can assemble to reach their own conclusions that may differ from mine, or might not. I will certainly tell you my opinion based upon the facts I present.
I will use my Merced County Grand Complaint #10-11-04 that I filed in May 2010 to demonstrate how public officials can tamper with a Grand Jury investigation of themselves and get away with it….until they run into the wrong guy.
The complaint alleged that Merced County District Attorney Larry Morse and the Merced County Counsel’s Office were concealing that I (Gene Forte) was being falsely and vindictively prosecuted to conceal that I had been falsely arrested for revealing public corruption. (Audio) (PDF) A Stanislaus County Deputy of 18 years says that the Merced County public officials feel threatened by me due to the “dirty laundry” I have on them.
It linked together how Merced County law enforcement agencies were (and still are) aided in their abuses of me done under the color of law by the Merced Sun Star and Los Banos Enterprise newspapers (McClatchy Newspapers), in particular, by their African American reporter Corey Pride who spouted forth to the public that I was a known racist. When I received death threats from a high school student of Mayor Jones that the Los Banos PD cover up with DA Morse without the Los Banos Enterprise printing a word about the pot boiled over on them.
Pride said that businesses should close their doors to me. According to Pride and City Planning Commissioner Norm Donovan, a staunch Jones supporter, I was the scum of the earth. Apparently, I shouldn’t even be able to shop for food. Posters wondered if the Los Banos Enterprise was aware of Pride making such statements for the paper. Of course they knew, and I was making sure they were by my communications telling them about it.
A complaint that I had filed with the California Fair Political Practices Commission had found that Mayor Tommy Jones was guilty of taking money under the table from Greg Hostetler, of Ranchwood Homes, a local big time developer. Jones also didn’t like the fact that I posted his mug shot for his arrest for the possession of crack cocaine when he was a city councilman, or organized a recall of him.
Pride is ex-Mayor Tommy Jones’ and other white public officials’ propaganda accomplice. Jones and company will throw the race card against anyone that has exposed their corruption. I shoved it down their throats. I showed that City Councilmen Manuel Faria and Mike Villalta (now mayor) were keeping their heads down and letting me be wrongly assailed as a racist. The council went as far as passing what they called was a civility code connected to my supposedly calling Jones a Lying N-Word at a council meeting. I did not. It was taken out of context as the video of Forte speech is watched.
Faria hammed it up the best he could for the cameras faking a tear to his eye as to how offended he was for Mayor Jones. Faria was crying all right. But not for Jones. Faria had told me that he and all of the council members knew about the under the table loans from Hostetler to Jones. Faria said they were too scared to bring it out because Pride and Jones would make them out to be racists in the community.
Therefore, all of the Los Banos city council agreed to help keep concealed what they knew were loans that would effect Jones being able to vote on Hosteler annexations. They sold citizens out by not holding a public official accountable and then attacked the citizen, me, that did stand up. They knew I was being falsely accused of being a racist, but instead of stopping it, they went along with it.
The African American Galloways, who I said were closer than my own brothers, were offended that Jones would say that Clinton Galloway lied under oath about Jones telling him that he knew for a fact that I was a dangerous member of the KKK. I told them that the Galloways sitting around talking about this in New York like home boys said Jones one lying N-word and I could tell him that for them.
Galloways felt that Jones saying that the Galloways would lie for the white guy to do harm to a black man was outrageous especially when it was a good white person who fought for racial equality and was a member of their family for forty years.
For the 1000th time, I am not a racist. It is the Big Lie by the propaganda arm of public corruption which goes along with me being the type of person that would attack a judge. I am married to an American Chinese. My best friend of forty years, who was my best man at my wedding, Mr. Clinton Galloway, is African American.
I have written a memorial to the life of Clinton’s brother and my dear friend, Dr. Carl A. Galloway, who passed away in my arms. The memorial is called “Angel Whispers” and was written prior to the infamous “BIG LIE PROPAGANDA TECHNIQUE” used by Pride and the Los Banos Enterprise with public officials to say I was a racist. After reading “Angel Whispers”, a reasonable person that thinks I am a racist would certainly be considered unreasonable or prejudiced.
Pride, in an exchange with a Recall organizer (which I was not a part of), Ms. Caryn Cox of Candlelight Realty, says that Pride (The Los Banos Enterprise) was not covering the signing of the recall due to me, who he said was a racist that she allowed into her real estate office.
Note: I had been prohibited from participation on the public website by the owner Mr. Charles Guest who ultimately closed the website due to potential liability because of the attacks on me. Guest went to work for Pride at the Los Banos Enterprise.
The Grand Jury complaint was well organized and supported by legally recorded conversations with Merced County law enforcement.
After filing the complaint, I received one letter from the Grand Jury saying they had received it.
It wasn’t until March 7th, 2011, when I sent out emails to about 1,600 attorneys in Merced, Stanislaus, and Fresno Counties, attaching a letter to the Merced Superior Court bench, exposing my being abandoned by my third public defender (after she set a trial date) that I was contacted by Grand Juror Annette Tomsha.
On March 14th, 2011, Tomsha told me that the Jury had voted to investigate my complaint against the District Attorney’s Office, the Los Banos Police Department, the Merced County Counsel’s Office, the Los Banos Enterprise, the Merced Sun Star, and the Merced County Sheriff’s Department.
There are a few more unsavory key players such as James Pico Padron of the Law Firm of Canelo, Hansen (as in Judge Ronald Hansen), Wilson, and Padron that I may touch upon later.
Tomsha told me that they wanted to start interviewing me to gather additional information I had. Meetings were set between March 17th – March 31st, 2011, however each was canceled. On March 31st, 2011, Grand Juror Tomsha set another first meeting to take place on April 7th, 2011.
On April 2nd, 2011, I did a radio interview on a program called The Quantum Leap in Monterey, California, discussing the topic of the public corruption in Monterey County. During the two hour program, I mentioned, for a total of about three minutes in two spots, that a Merced County Grand Jury was investigating public officials of Merced County based upon a complaint that I had filed. I told listeners that if they knew of any public official corruption matters in Monterey County, tell me about it.
The intent of doing so was to hopefully get a Monterey County Grand Jury to take action by filing a complaint with them…then putting public pressure on them to investigate. It also certainly is in the domain of one grand jury to notify another grand jury in another county of potential public official wrong doing there.
I pointed out that the evidence I have on Merced County officials will lead back to Monterey County officials who are trying to help Merced County cover matters up for Leon Panetta, of the Panetta Institute for Public Policy in Monterey. Panetta, prior to announcing that he was not going to run for Governor in the Recall Race, called me and asked if I could just forget about what his judicial cronies had done in league with the Monterey Herald that he was the main commentator for.
I continually shout from the mountain top that at least seven judges of the Monterey Superior Court bench have retired due to me. As an offer of proof, take a look at the demise of poor tongue wagging Judge Michael Fields. There is no mention of me, Gene Forte, being the cause, but if you look back at the start of Judge Fields’ demise, being the Crystal Power declaration (caution salacious material), it was obtained and filed by me in my case. It becomes clear I forced Fields into retirement. Early articles by the LA Metropolitan News clearly indicate that I was at the epicenter of Fields’ retirement.
Twice I have defeated bad faith motions to Declare me a California Vexatious Litigant. The attorneys who brought what was called a “purported motion” could not even avail themselves to the protection of CCP47, commonly known as the litigation privilege. The attorneys should have been sanctioned by the court, but were not. You will find that the reason was because it was none other than Attorney General Bill Lockyer in his individual capacity for himself and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger with the real party in interest Chief Justice Ronald George.
Therefore, since retired Judge John Golden adjudicated that I was not a vexatious litigant, that I have never filed any frivolous motions, multiple or merit less litigation….this also means that my allegations have substance, so why in the heck isn’t anyone investigating the matter? I have actually written and filed winning appeals. After the Monterey Herald was faxed on June30th, 2004 the order denying the vexatious litigant motion it printed that I had been declared a vexatious litigant by the Monterey court in a December 4th, 2005, front page 2,000 word Sunday edition titled “County Judiciary Under Fire” (a real smut piece).
It was their first volley of false smut at me to protect Judge Michael Fields from the public scrutiny due my obtaining the Powser declaration.
A few weeks later they printed the correction buried in the newspaper. The Monterey Herald at the time was in transition with McClatchy Newspapers with Leon Panetta as their number one public opinion commentator.
Could it be that they know my allegations, if prosecuted by government prosecutors, would bring convictions against high ranking public officials? You can bet the farm on it!
Like a bolt of lightning on April 7th, 2011, I am contacted by Grand Juror Annette Tomsha who informs me that, because I spoke on the radio program in Monterey on Saturday that Merced County Counsel James Fincher said that the jurors had to re-vote the investigation to terminate it. Tomsha said that Fincher said that I had broken the confidentiality of the grand jury and that it could be a misdemeanor. Tomsha seemed scared and befuddled as to the predicament. She urged Forte to consider eliminating some of the parties and refiling in the next Grand Jury year.
Tomsha told me that the County Counsel had received a package from an unknown person in Monterey County who had heard me on the radio program. Tomsha said that due to such, the Merced County Counsel James Fincher and/or Richard Flores (Assistant County Counsel) said the investigation must be terminated because a vote would need to be taken to exclude subjects to the complaint such as himself and the District Attorney’s Office. It was Fincher’s way of getting himself and the other public officials out of the complaint by creating an adversarial position between me and the Grand Jury.
When I got over the shock, I then confirmed with Tomsha what she already knew. The Merced County Counsel could not advise them to do anything regarding the complaint that concerned themselves, and that I did not owe the Grand Juror any oath of confidentiality.
Juror Tomsha said that she was frustrated and couldn’t understand how they could get away with this. Tomsha said that I should separate out the parties and re-file the complaint next year with the new Grand Jury. Juror Tomsha said that my complaint brought everyone that had a hand in this to the table and the jurors were concerned it wasn’t just one isolated incident, but a total breakdown of law enforcement in Merced County.
I calmly explained to Juror Tomsha that it was jury tampering plain and simple and that the Grand Jurors needed to address it immediately. If they didn’t, then they could be considered complicit with the public officials.
My email letter to the Grand Juror Barbara Ellington and Grand Juror Tomsha of April 7th, 2011 at 7:56PM addressing the jury tampering was never responded to. Be sure to take a read of the letter and compare it to what Grand Juror Tomsha told Merced Police Department Lieutenant Matt Williams in his Police Report #11-13828).
By April 11th, 2011, I was waiting in the lobby of the Merced Police Department to file a police report for jury tampering by Merced County Counsel’s office after being told by the FBI that they did not think was in their jurisdiction to investigate grand jury tampering.
Still as of July 12th, 2011, Chief Norm Andrade, Merced City Manager John Bramble, and Lieutenant Matt Williams continue to obstruct the investigation of the police report of Grand jury tampering by independent prosecutors for the benefit of the subjects of the grand jury complaint.
Los Banos City Officials, Merced County Officials and Other Local and State Officials
The Grand Jury Report of the “disposition of my complaint” would be laughable if not so despicable. It says that they declined to investigate the complaint, when in fact, they did vote to investigate it. It wasn’t until after Merced County Counsel Fincher and Assistant County Counsel Richard Flores illegally (against Penal Code 935) provided advice about a complaint against themselves, to terminate the complaint based upon my allegedly breaching the confidentiality of the grand jury.
Even though Grand Juror Tomsha tried to walk on egg shells during the questioning by Lieutenant Williams (excerpt of police report #11-13828) concerning the jury tampering…..the fact remains that Fincher and Flores had their hands in getting the investigation terminated. It is more than evident.
A shell game is being enacted by those involved in tampering with the Grand Jury. It’s the ruse that there was an investigation requested of Monterey County officials. There was not.
Grand Juror Annette Tomsha, Grand Juror Foreperson Barbara Ellington, along with Merced County Counsel Flores told Lieutenant Williams during his investigation of jury tampering that there was not any discussion that a radio program in Monterey was the reason why Fincher said the investigation had to be terminated. The information sent to them was to be delivered to me for a Monterey homeless person who heard the Quantum Leap radio program.
THERE WAS NEVER ANY COMPLAINT AGAINST MONTEREY COUNTY OFFICIALS
FILED WITH THE MERCED COUNTY GRAND JURY
The package sent by Mr. John Bennett was attached to the April 7th, 2011 letter I sent to the Grand Jury. It was also presented to Lieutenant Williams as evidence that it certainly was discussed.
Another reason for the Grand Jury to list it as a complaint was to give the impression that I filed the complaint which would be a vexatious thing to do. Merced County has no jurisdiction over Monterey County, per se.
If it were a Grand Jury Complaint, why did the Grand Jury give me the entire original package?
So, does Lieutenant Williams really believe that there was no discussion between Grand Jurors and the Merced County Counsel saying that there had been a confidentiality breached by me by my speaking on a radio program, and that was why the investigation supposedly had to be terminated? Of course not.
Time to strap the lie detectors on Grand Juror Tomsha, Grand Jury Foreperson Barbara Ellington, Merced County Counsel Richard Flores and Gene Forte, lets see what comes out.
Ask yourselves how would a legitimate police report investigation of jury tampering by James Fincher be closed without questioning Fincher?
A Stanislaus County Deputy of eighteen years concluded that there was evidence of the crime of grand jury tampering by Flores and Fincher and that it should be forwarded to the District Attorneys office. It was not the Merced Police Department’s call to do otherwise.
Let’s go out singing….
The Grand Jury Hoax,
