Palin Allegedly Referred “Extremely Dangerous Serial Criminals” for University of Alaska Fairbanks Jobs

Two people cited by a prominent Ninth Circuit Appellate Attorney as “Extremely dangerous serial criminals,” were
allegedly referred by Sarah Palin for employment at the University of Alaska.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

Two people cited by a prominent Ninth Circuit Appellate Attorney as “Extremely dangerous serial criminals,” were allegedly referred by Sarah Palin for employment at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF).

The Gold Bar Reporter, reporting on Fairbanks Alaska “What we’re talking about here is a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde couple – but far worse,” said John Scannell, a nationally regarded attorney in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The referenced couple, John Pennington, and his wife Crystal Hill Pennington (nee Berg), are nationally infamous for their crime sprees in Washington State and across the country over the course of decades.

The Pennington’s “criminal Katrina,” as insiders refer to their legacy and ongoing criminal activity, has and continues to occur at vast public expense. The cost of the Pennington’s rampage includes the negligent homicide of 43 people, the rape and attempted murder of a five-year-old girl in Cowlitz County, WA, and hundreds of millions of dollars in theft and damage to public and private property.

“Given how much evidence about the Pennington’s criminal activity is available with even a minimal background check – or for that matter that is publicly available on the internet with a couple of keystrokes – isn’t a larger question, ‘Who told University of Alaska Fairbanks staff to bypass employment screening requirements to knowingly expose students to dangerous serial criminals, and Alaska taxpayers to massive financial liability?’” said the famous appellate attorney who is known to rarely charge fees for his high-profile public interest work.

The answer to the “who” question, according to allegations by UAF insiders, is Sarah Palin and friends. Ms. Palin has personally known the Penningtons for nearly 20 years, since 2003. “Insiders allege that John E. Pennington Jr. first met Sarah Palin when he was fundraising for George Bush in 2003, and she was in charge of Alaska’s piggy bank as Chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. Pennington used his fraudulently obtained position as Director of FEMA’s Region 10 – which includes Alaska – after submitting completely false credentials to get the job, to gain access to Palin,” said Journalist and Publisher Anne Block, J.D. “According to several sources, the Pennington’s went to great and constant efforts to ingratiate themselves to Palin because of her access to an ocean of Alaska’s money and her political and social connections to wealthy Republicans.”

After being terminated by FEMA in 2004 for theft of federal money, John Pennington fraudulently became a self-described “professor,” at Pierce College in Washington State. The Seattle Times was first to report on Pennington’s fraudulent academic credentials purchased for a flat rate of fifteen hundred dollars. Ms. Block provided Pierce College’s Chancellor, Michelle Johnson, their Human Resources Department, Legal Department, and the College’s Board with extensive evidence of Pennington’s falsified credentials and criminal history. No action was taken. She then published a story on her blog with links to criminal evidence. Nothing happened. Ms. Block, a J.D., journalist, meticulous researcher, and highly effective public advocate for decades, was mystified. “I’ve never seen this,” she said. “I knew that there had to be a reason for Pennington’s apparent invincibility. And there certainly is.”

Although the administration and Board of Pierce College took no action after receiving hundreds of pages of evidence from Ms. Block, John Edward Pennington Jr. then engaged in “extremely inappropriate behavior with both students and staff,” which finally resulted in his termination, according to a concerned member of Pierce College’s staff who contacted Ms. Block. The source also indicates that legal action against the college is now pending – precisely as Ms. Block had warned Pierce College’s administration and legal counsel would occur. 

“The Pennington’s are walking tornados of human suffering, misery, and public financial liability,” said attorney Scannell. “The most basic question is, how are the Pennington’s getting away with all of this? People are automatically disqualified for government employment for any one of their crimes, and yet they have committed dozens of both state and federal crimes, year after year, all of which is publicly documented.”

The answer, as Journalist and Publisher Ms. Block has carefully documented and concluded after both filing hundreds of public records requests and receiving testimony from dozens of insiders, is extortion. By extorting highly placed public officials with compromising pictures of sex acts, including those with underage victims of human trafficking, allegedly including Washington State’s Attorney General, Bob Ferguson, Judge Marlin Applewick,  Judge Michael Scott, and several other public officials, Mr. Pennington has been able to have both his prosecution suppressed and his criminal record erased. “This really is Seattle’s Epstein,” said Ms. Block.

Crystal Hill Pennington’s (Nee Berg) Crime Spree is

Spread Over Several States and a Term of Decades

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

“Crystal Hill Pennington’s crimes are so vast and numerous, however, that even John Pennington’s extortion leverage isn’t powerful enough to clean up the metaphoric legal and criminal equivalent of the fallout from Chernobyl, Fukushima, and Three Mile Island combined,” according to Journalist Ms. Block. “Crystal Hill has unsuccessfully attempted to evade authorities and accountability through several relocations across the country and name changes; engaged in politically targeted serial promiscuity with dozens of highly placed public officials including former Washington State Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe ( fired for sexually harassing women and gays)and former Gold Bar Mayor Joe Beavers ( a convicted felon himself), many of whom contracted Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) from her – according to Ms. Hill Pennington’s own public emails; forged court documents; stole $200,000 from the City of Gold Bar; served time in county corrections after three convictions fraud, and falsified countless job and academic applications. Regardless of her extensive criminal history, Crystal Hill Pennington has mysteriously gained employment in $100,000+ per year government jobs – all while somehow evading background checks at every juncture,” said the award-winning reporter.

“This included a job with King County, Washington, until we filed public records requests and repeatedly proved that her employment application was completely falsified, at which point she was finally fired. Ms. Pennington then recently fled to Alaska, under the apparent belief that her serial criminal husband can once again extort and/or leverage jobs for both of them, which he has done,” stated Ms. Block.

“We have solved the mystery as to how both John and Crystal Pennington continue to operate their confidence game,” said Ms. Block. “John Pennington has been using both extortion leverage and calling in favors to get he and his wife Crystal Hill Pennington high paying public jobs, as well as to prevent people at those public agencies from performing background checks. This is exactly what is alleged to have happened with Sarah Palin and friends getting the Pennington’s jobs at UAF, with insiders knowingly looking the other way about their seemingly endless criminal histories. Let me be clear, these people dont just have criminal records, it’s more like a double jacket album.”

“It will all come out in our investigation, in addition to the audits and investigations of several agencies we are filing with, by checking the call logs and emails of every public official involved, to determine who knew what, when, and yet allowed the Pennington’s state employment, regardless of all the evidence of criminal activity UAF administration had of both John and Crystal Pennington,” she stated. “We have filed public records requests on several public employees and are just getting started. None of us will stop until we find out which public officials, who are highly paid and trusted to protect public interest, have been aiding and abetting the continuation of their crime spree,” said Attorney Scannell. “By helping the Penningtons, every person involved has been, and is, committing state and federal crimes. UAF administration and even their counsel has looked the other way. Shouldn’t they be held accountable?”

“Crystal Hill Pennington is even trying to apply to the Alaska Bar for a law license, even though her ‘credentials’ are from an online ‘diploma mills,’ Eastern Oregon and Mitchell Hamlin, which automatically disqualified by the American Bar Association’s requirements for a valid law degree. And because of her criminal history, the Alaska Bar Assocation has told Block that her application has been flagged for lying.” Ms. Block emphatically stated.

Ms. Block is not the only journalist interested in the Penningtons, however. While major national and international media have become increasingly interested in the Gold Bar Reporter’s “Seattle’s Epstein” story over the past year, “more than ten” of the largest print and TV news venues in the nation have contacted Ms. Block and many of her witness informants within the past two weeks. “They are calling the story bigger than Epstein.”

“This story is gaining momentum with the mass and force of an Alaskan glacier, and the fury of an avalanche,” said Ms. Block.

“It looks like the careers of many Alaskan public officials are directly in its path.”

University of Alaska Fairbanks

Chancellor White Refuses to Fire

Serial Criminal John Edward Pennington

Chancellor White’s Refusal to Fire Known Serial Criminal John Pennington
“Exposes Students to Imminent Danger, The University to Massive Financial
Liability and Loss of Federal Accreditation,” According to a Legal Expert

Fairbanks, AK Oct. 20, 2021. “It just doesn’t make sense,” said the famous Ninth Circuit Appellate attorney John Scannell. “By refusing to fire John Pennington, the Chancellor is putting the life of every student at risk.”

“I want to be very clear on what the implications are of John Pennington’s presence at the University of Alaska,” said the tireless public interest litigator, who is nationally recognized for his pro bono advocacy of civil rights. “The Chancellor is exposing the students to imminent danger, the university to massive financial liability and loss of federal accreditation,” he said. “It’s that simple.”

“Isn’t the larger question, ‘How did John Edward Pennington Jr., a man with a false credentials, a history of negligent homicide of 43 people, federal credit card fraud, rape and attempted murder of a five year old child, serial child molestation, and extreme domestic violence get hired by the University of Alaska?’” said the federal attorney. “Shouldn’t the Chancellor be thoroughly investigated by the Board of Regents, the Office of Governor, the Legislature, the State Auditor, the Alaska Education Foundation, and the Education Trust of Alaska?” asked the highly regarded litigator.

The Publisher of the Gold Bar Reporter, who has collected thousands of pages of evidence over a decade, agrees. “This is Seattle’s Epstein,” said legal scholar Anne Block, J.D. “He has been blackmailing high-ranking politicians for years with compromising pictures involving underage victims of human trafficking. Public officials include Court of Appeals Justice Marlin ApplewickSenator John Lovick, and Snohomish County Commissioner G. Geoffrey Gibbs, who remains on the bench regardless of his prior conviction of fraud by the Washington Attorney General’s Office.

There is no way that John Pennington could be legitimately employed in any public interest capacity,” said the Journalist and Publisher. “Any background check would have revealed a lifetime of criminal activity,” she said.

“Every single email, every phone call, and every meeting of the Chancellor should be exhaustively examined to determine what political pressure or favoritism may have resulted in Pennington’s hiring and the refusal to terminate Pennington’s employment,” said Ms. Block.

“The Chancellor is risking the health and safety of the students,” she said. “The people of Alaska need to know why. Right now.”

This is Part Two of the series “Seattle’s Epstein,” which now focus on the investigation of Chancellor White.

Limestone Networks, a Dallas company, tries to hack in to the Gold Bar Reporter

Three times today, a company based out of Dallas Texas, Limestone Networks, made several attempts to hack in to the Gold Bar Reporter.  Every single attack Limestone made, our firewalls blocked out.

https://www.limestonenetworks.com/

In 1986, Congress passed the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), the federal statute that prohibits unauthorized computer access. Under federal law, unauthorized computer access describes the act of:

  1. Knowingly accessing a computer without authorization to obtain:
  2. Financial information
  3. Information from a governmental department or agency
  4. Information from any protected computer with the intent to defraud
  5. Knowingly causing the transmission of a program, information, or code from a protected computer
  6. Knowingly accessing a protected computer and causing damage and loss to that computer

According to our counsel, the penalty for hacking includes high fines and sentences of up to 10 years of prison time.

Limestone Networks is based out of Dallas Texas, and the official IP address that tried to hack in to the Gold Bar Reporter several times today is:

Limestone Networks was contacted for comment but refused. Bigger question for us reporters is why? Why would a company based out of Dallas be so interested in hacking into the Gold Bar Reporter?

The Gold Bar Reporter is a small online news source from Washington State.  Dedicated to exposing mainly corrupt politicians, especially ones that prey on our children.

 

Perhaps someone from Limestone networks is helping a disgraced and now terminated Director of Snohomish County Emergency Management  cover up his crimes against women and children?  Could this be some kind of connection to the pedophilia ring that Jack Abramoff blew the whistle about involving Washington State politicians from  Olympia during the late 1990s who were sexually abusing kids inside Washington State’s foster care system?

Interesting to note that Boys Town in Omaha Nebraska keeps looking up John E Pennington, Snohomish County.

Remember Boys Town was the center of massive sex abuse scandal from the 1900s called the ” The Franklin Sex Abuse Scandal.”

 


Disgraced man who killed 43 people in Oso mudslides using false academic credentials, again!

penny

John Edward Pennington, labeled a sociopath and declared autistic by two King County Washington State doctors, committing more felonies against the taxpayers, once again caught using false academic credentials, but this time in Alaska

We recently learned that John E Pennington is on the loose claiming to be a PhD student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  Did he forget that he needs a real Bachelor’s Degree first?

In 2017, John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg convicted of bank fraud) were held liable to Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block for the tort of forgery, see below.

 

From FEMA to Snohomish County, to Pierce County Washington, “Lunatic on the loose”

On February 22, 2017, Pierce College public official and man responsible for killing of 43 people in the Oso mudslides, John E. Pennington, verbally assaulted a Pierce County Sheriff’s Officer caught on camera.  He also verbally threatened the Gold Bar Reporter’s process server who served John Pennington with more complaints and a subpoena.

Unfortunately, John Pennington’s criminal conduct was caught on camera and witnessed by several onlookers at the Piece County Courthouse, including three Sheriff’s Officers.

The Gold Bar Reporters recently learned that John Pennington has been treated for major mental health problems, and was kicked out of Vanderbilt College as a result.

Imagine a man with mental health problems sat as a Director of Emergency Management of Snohomish County.  A major breach to health and welfare to the taxpayers of Washington State.


John Pennington is being sued for his latest racketeering crimes and posting defamatory and untrue statements on a website he and his bank frauding wife Crystal Hill Pennington run titled  ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”  Both were served with new complaints on Thursday, and by John Pennington’s threats and tactics to intimidate court officers were witnessed on camera.

” Looney Tunes, What’s up Doc? ”

“Lunatic on the loose” John E Pennington has been trying for over eight years to obtain a prior restraint on free speech against the Gold Bar Reporter’s reports on his and our former bank frauding Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud Snohomish County, Washington 2005).    Why, to hide their criminal racketeering conduct the Gold Bar Reporter have been exposing for over the last ten years, including a foe online website the Penningtons set up to cyber-stalk their opponents.

Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers was deposed in November 2016, and he too admitted he was a anonymous cyber-stalker on the Penningtons’ website while he was a Gold Bar public official. Beavers and the City are being sued for gross civil rights violations.

On Thursday February 22, 2017, the lunatics tried for the tenth time to obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter, but this time forum shopping in Pierce County.  A county where Crystal Hill Pennington doesn’t live and a county where John Pennington managed to fraud state taxpayers ( and our children) with false academic credentials obtaining a job teaching our youngsters.

Imagine you sign up for Homeland Security degree at Pierce College and your classes are being taught by a man who has admitted to having and using false academic credentials

Please see the attached ABOVE PDF Government Accountability Report  ( or link provided above) on public official John E Pennington’s online diploma mill school of choice.  I also include Seattle Times article in support of John Pennington’s false academic credential.

 

As both reports unmistakably confirms the IRS found that California Coastal sold degrees at flat rates.  As such,  Mark Lindquist, please consider this letter and supporting evidence in support on my criminal complaint against John E. Pennington as he produced his fraudulent online degree to obtain a benefit in violation of

As for Pierce College, I’d like some comment from the Dean of Students and/or  Board of Trustees Chair Ms. Roseblatt on why Pierce College approved employment of John E. Pennington with such fraudulent degrees.

As a taxpayer, I have standing to bring not only a criminal complaint for John Pennington false filings, but also a civil charge for state ethics violations.

Our children deserve better from us.


VERBALLY ASSAULTING COURT OFFICERS

John E. Pennington has yet one more credential to add his resume, threatening public and court officers.

With each new credential, the Gold Bar Reporter will update his resume.

Criminal charges have been filed against John E Pennington with his court appearance this month.
