Why is a foreign government running Washington State’s risk management?

Attorney General Rob McKenna, the leader behind restricting citizens’ rights to access the courts, and to limit liability by pooling insurance including judges, defense attorneys, prosecutors, counties, Washington State Bar Association, Washington State Supreme Court, Washington State Office of Public Defense, lawyers, Special Assistant Attorney Generals, school districts, fire districts, and private law firms

Association of Washington Cites and Cities Insurance of Washington Cities, the  Washington State Bar Association, for profit and non-profit companies, as well as many Washington lawyers and law firms are insured and are members of Association of Washington Cites.

Association of Washington Cities insurance policies are unwritten by Lloyd’s of London and its brokers. Not only does Association of Washington Cities insure cities, they also insure the Washington State Bar Association, private law firms ( mainly those connected with the Washington State Attorney General’s Office as Special Assistant Attorney General’s – we’ll get to this story soon), the  Washington State’s Attorney General’s Department of Enterprise Services, and with the Washington State Supreme Court itself.

In 2008, Lloyd’s of London was taken over by the United Kingdom government. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_United_Kingdom_bank_rescue_package 

For this reason, we explain what Lloyd’s of London is and why its owned by United Kingdom government, and more importantly how and why Lloyd’s of London has employees and office space inside Association of Washington Cities office in Olympia, Washington.

Rob McKenna, former Washington State Attorney General

In 2005,  Washington State’s Attorney General General Rob McKenna tired to bamboozle the taxpayers of Washington State into limiting citizen’s rights to financial compensation.  https://amednews.com/article/20051010/government/310109981/6/

McKenna was the driving force behind tort reform.  Rob McKenna grossly underestimated the voters of  Washington State voters desire to have access to the courts when wronged.  After loosing his bid to restrict citizens’s rights to access the courts, via tort reform, Rob McKenna came up with a different plan to limit and restrict liability by “pooling insurance.”  McKenna was even stupid enough to sign a law school journal article with Seattle University Law School this after the voters overwhelmingly rejected tort reform, so McKenna proposed A fraudulent scheme to limit liability, started by former Attorney General Rob McKenna, after the voters of Washington State overwhelmingly rejected tort reform.  More to come soon, promise. 


Lloyd’s of London, generally known simply as Lloyd’s, is an insurance and reinsurance market located in London, United Kingdom. Unlike most of its competitors in the industry, it is not an insurance company; rather, Lloyd’s is a corporate body governed by the Lloyd’s Act 1871 and subsequent Acts of Parliament. It operates as a partially-mutualised marketplace within which multiple financial backers, grouped in syndicates, come together to pool and spread risk. These underwriters, or “members”, are a collection of both corporations and private individuals, the latter being traditionally known as “Names”.

The business of underwriting at Lloyd’s is predominantly general insurance and reinsurance, although a small number of syndicates write term life assurance. The market has its roots in marine insurance and was founded by Edward Lloyd at his coffee house on Tower Street in c. 1686. Today, it has a dedicated building on Lime Street within which business is transacted at each syndicate’s “box” in the underwriting “Room”, with the insurance policy documentation being known traditionally as a “slip”.

Lloyd’s is a market of members. As the oldest continuously active insurance marketplace in the world, Lloyd’s has retained some unusual structures and practices that differ from all other insurance providers today. Originally created as a non-incorporated association of subscribing members, it was incorporated by the Lloyd’s Act 1871 and is currently governed under the Lloyd’s Acts of 1871 through to 1982.

Lloyd’s itself does not underwrite insurance policies itself, leaving that to its members. Instead, the Society operates effectively as a market regulator, setting it’s own rules under which members operate and offering centralized administrative services to those council members.

In Washington State, those council members are known to us Washingtonians as Association of Washington Cities Board Members. https://wacities.org/about-us/board-of-directors

The  appointment of nominated members, including that of the chief executive officer at Washington Cities, Peter King,  is confirmed by the Governor of the Bank of England. The Bank of England is owned by the United Kingdom government, which means, that the Bank of England operates risk management for Lloyd’s of London i.e. the United Kingdom government, and has a heavy hand in controlling its brokers/members and appointments to Association of Washington Cities including but not limited to CEO Peter King.

In Olympia, Association of Washington Cities, has a Bank of England ( again owned by UK government) employee, Harlan Stientjes, sitting inside directing litigation.  Yes, Association of Washington Cities Risk Manager is a paid employee of the United Kingdom.

According to current Gold Bar Mayor, ” Harlan Stientjes is the one that targeted you Anne.” What our Mayor did not know was this: Harlan Stientjes’s email communication, an alleged risk manager for Association of Washington Cities, has a fixed IP address and is assigned to the UK Ministry of  Defence.” Remember the UK government owns Llyods.

In 2018 there were 84 syndicates managed by 55 managing agencies that collectively wrote £35.5bn of gross premiums on risks placed by 303 approved brokers. Around 50 per cent of premiums emanated from North America ( mainly the United States), 30 per cent from Europe and 20 per cent from the rest of the world.

Association of Washington Cities and Cites Insurance Association of Washington Counties are the two brokers that solicit and obtain members on behalf of Lloyd’s of London, because by pooling and dictating the delivery of legal and insurance services, Association of Washington Cities Chief Executive Officer, Peter King, among other members like Ann Marie Soto, Michael Kenyon, Ramsey Rammerman, Amanda Butler, and Shannon  Ragonesi, and Judge Michael Scott ( King County Superior Court) are all members and huge contractors with Association of Washington Cities.

But the stench doesn’t stop at Association of Washington Cities.  Our search also indicted that when a private lawyer is a member, like Washington State Bar’s former President Bill Pickett and Stephanie Bloomfield ( a daughter to US Federal Judge Ronald Leighton) the payouts for being a member amounts to Association of Washington Cities settling cases, always. 100 % chance of prevailing inside Washington State Courts and US Federal Courts, Washington Division.

In January 2020, we caught US Federal Court Judge Ricardo Martinez calling Snohomish County Prosecutor Joseph Genster, making exparte communication, this while cases against Association of Washington Cities members, Snohomish County via Washington Association of Counties, are being sued for 42 USC 1983 and RICO violations.




Risk Managers, Llyods of London, pooling scam to limit liability, or as Attorney Jeffrey Myers inferred, they decide who wins cases or gets charged or convicted of a crime 

Association of Washington Cities Chief Executive Officer, Peter King, among other members like Ann Marie Soto, Michael Kenyon, Ramsey Rammerman,  Amanda Butler, and Shannon  Ragonesi, and Judges Michael Scott, Julie Spector, Amie Sutton ( King County Superior Court) and US Federal Court Judges like Ricardo Martinez, Ronald Leighton, Benjerman Settles, Marsha Pechman, and Richard Jones were all members and/or received huge payouts/ contracts with Association of Washington Cities.

In the case of Snohomish County Washington, we caught Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe tampering with the jury list, removing names of those residents who are open government supporters or highly educated, and making deals with incompetent defense attorneys such as Jason Schwartz, Tom Cox, Tom Kummrow, and Phil Sayles to throw cases in exchange for huge money contracts.

How big is this?  To answer this question, when we ran a search of how many judges were members of Association of Washington Cities, we could not find one who was not a associated with Association of Washington Cites, except the new appointee in US Federal Court in Seattle, appointed by President Trump.

Association of Washington Cities only boosts of a few names of its members, leaves out many judges and attorney generals names,  but does include members with clear conflicts of interest such as the Washington State Auditor’s Office, Superior Court Judges Association, Attorney General’s Department of Enterprise Services ( who contracts with the Washington State Supreme Court for the Washington State Bar Association),  Port of Seattle, City of Duvall, City of Gold Bar, City of Monroe, City of Everett, Judges Associations, Counties, Cities, school districts, fire districts, WA State Office of Public Defense, Snohomish County Public Defenders, law firm of Anderson Hunter, attorneys such Ann Marie Soto at Madrona Law Group, Kenyon Disend, Keating, Buckling, & McCormick, Christie law Group, all who are being sued for racketeering crimes in 2016 02 19 Block v WSBA Amended RICO Complaint. 

As the RICO complaint correctly stated, Attorney Ann Marie Soto, an attorney at Madrona Law Group and Kenyon Disend, committed federal and state racketeering crimes when she and Keating,Bucklin and McCormack’s attorneys Shannon Ragonesi and Amanda Butler, helped a federal witness, and Gold Bar’s Mayors Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) and Joe Beavers, illegally remove their criminal conviction  records from the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) data base using Michael Meyers a City of Seattle police officer.

Seattle police officer or should we say Association of Washington Cities IT hatchet man, Michael Meyers, was also moonlighting providing IT services to the City of Gold Bar to conceal former Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington’s email communication when she and John E Pennington ( fired for harassing and cyber-stalking the Gold Bar Reporter via Snohomish County computers) operated an anonymous website titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle” with Snohomish County taxpayer monies.  After the Gold Bar Reporter successfully sued Crystal Hill Pennington and John E Pennington Jr. they took down the Sky Valley Chronicle.

Attorney Shannon Ragonesi was recently caught having exparte communication with the City of Gold Bar’s council member Brian Diaz, who was arrested for downloading and possession of child porn and possession of meth. https://goldbarreporter.wordpress.com/tag/brian-diaz-gold-bar-washington-pedophile/

We also recently learned that the City of Seattle Police Officer, Michael Meyers, received huge payouts from the Washington State Attorney General’s Office, as did attorney Ann Marie Soto, and her previous and current  law firms of Madrona Law Group, Pacifica Law Group,  and Kenyon Disend.   Attorney Ann Marie Soto is also “special assistant attorney general” another fraudulent scam to steal and deceive the taxpayers that we will get to in another story.

So what does the State of Washington’s insurance company aka Association of Washington Cities do to restrict citizens’ rights to seek damages when the voters said NO ? 

Association of Washington of Cities, at the lecturing of Attorney General Rob McKenna decide to pool insurance, with no limits to who can become members. A few words come to mind including deceptive trade, Anti Trust, and fraud and corruption.

Question posed is: is this deceptive to call an Association, Association of Washington of Cities, when in fact they are accepting members who are not Cities, and directing those members to one insurance company, Lloyd’s of London.  May be the bigger question is why? Why is Llyods of London insuring agencies, prosecutors, defense attorneys, State of Washington Auditors Office, Insurance Commissioner, Cities, Counties, Judges like Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Janis Ellis, law firms such as Madrona Law Group, Kenyon Disend, Ogden Murphy and Wallace, Hillis Clarke Martin and Peterson ( King County Judge Michael Scott’s firm), Lane & Powell, Perkins Coie, Foster Pepper, and other associations such as as Cities Insurance Association of Washington and the Washington State Bar Association?

Does this not amount to fraud? or as one of the Association of Washington Cities member and contractor, Jeffrey Myers, from Law, Lyman, Daniel, Kammerer, Bogdanovich said ” they will not Anne Block win” or as convicted felon and former Mayor Joe Beavers said in 2009 ” we have the courts locked up… and we are going to get Block’s Washington State Bar license for this.”

Based on the totality of the evidence we have collected, we now know ” they” Beavers and Myers were bragging about were Association of Washington of Cities and Llyods of London, with the assistance of its members, including the Washington State Bar Association, county prosecutors, and every judges association in Washington State.

There’s leave no doubt that Association of Washington of Cities, with the assistance of the Washington State Attorney’s General’s Office, at the bequest of its insurance, have been fixing cases to restrict any citizens rights to access the courts to expose their felonious conduct which we have ample evidence to support amounts to racketeering and Sherman Anti-Trust violations.

Former Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington told a friend that the Washington State Bar Association, a member of Association of Washington Cities, illegally released the Gold Bar Reporter’s application file to the City of Gold Bar in March 2009, hence why Supreme Court Justice Barbara Madsen continues to cover up the City of Gold Bar’s crimes.

Late yesterday, we finally received a contract between the Washington State Supreme Court, on behalf of the Washington State Bar Association, contracting with the Washington State Attorney’s General’s Department of Enterprise Services. Washington State Attorney’s General’s Department of Enterprise Services is also a member of Association of Washington Cities.

This means the Washington State Bar Association is a member of Association of Washington Cities and is in fact a state agency not a branch of the Judiciary as the Washington State Supreme Court has continuously, for over 25 years, falsely asserted to the public. Now, we know that even the Washington State Supreme Court is a branch of the Executive’s Officer ( i.e. the Washington State Attorney General’s Office Department of Enterprise Services).

” Those people who are threatening you, are now threatening me”  Gold Bar’s new Mayor William Clem was referring Association of Washington Cities CEO Peter King and its risk manager Harlan Stientjes.

Bigger question for those of us who have litigated is: How far does this go? Possibly to the 9th Circuit? Those of us who been frauded by this scheme of “fixing cases” knows it involves the Washington State Attorney General’s Office, the State Supreme Court, Association of Washington Cities, County Prosecutors, and every Superior Court in Washington State.

This fraudulent scheme has amounted to defense attorneys throwing clients under the bus in exchange for money, and a promise from Association of Washington Cities members, the Washington State Bar Association, not to investigate a single complaint filed against an agency employee.

More to come soon.
