From FEMA to Snohomish County Washington, dark secrets unearthed

Pedophile


We’ve been investigating John Pennington’s past thirty years on this planet for over seven years.

We never thought we’d get to this point, finally uncovering why John E. Pennington has been so desperately trying to hide hs past. Well it’s simple, he’s a pedophile and a wife beater, and once the feds learned the truth he was terminated from FEMA.


John Pennington is a sociopath; and how he met an attorney named Michael Kenyon who helped Johnny cover up his rape of a five year old child from Cowlitz County.

Well documented in our past stories http://goldbarreporter.org/2015/04/04/attorney-michael-kenyons-dirty-bag-of-secrets-part-ii/


What John Pennington was trying to hide for so many years

In 2000, John Pennington was George Bush Jr’s campaign manager here in Washington State.  Soon after George Bush Jr. was elected ( or stole the election with his brother’s assistance depending what you believe), George Jr. appointed John E Pennington and Michael Browne to positions inside FEMA. Sadly for America, not one FEMA Director was qualified for such positions.

As a result of Michael Browne and John Pennington’s inability to read, write and think effectively caused thousands of minority deaths in Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane Katrina was an eye opener for those of us who actually earned accredited degrees and whose parents taught us to think critically. George W Bush Jr.’s decision to appoint friends instead of educated and skilled people resulted in massive human loss of life In New Orleans.

Had this story ended in New Orleans, we wouldn’t be exposing John E.Pennington today. But it didn’t, why is simple, because Washington State Senator Jennifer Dunn decided to use her political clout to appoint an uneducated bum to FEMA Region 10 ( Pacific Northwest).

What is even crazier is that George W Bush made an executive appointment without ever running a single background check on John Pennington prior to appointing him.

All that changed when America started calling for Michael Brownie’s head for causing  so many deaths in New Orleans. Perhaps Michael Browne might have survived press scrutiny had he not put in his email that was heading to Nordstroms to purchase new clothes for the cameras, while at the same time thousands of African Americans were floating down the street or in lock down inside an unsafe convention center.

African Americans were drowning in the streets of New Orleans, because FEMA Directors lacked basic college skills to handle such a disaster. In the case of Michael Browne, an unaccredited undergraduate degree as well as unaccredited law school diploma. In the case of John Pennington, an online diploma mill degree from an online school the U.S. Dept of Education said sold online diplomas at a flat rate, California Coastal College.


Hurricane Katrina, good bye Brownie, Hello Penny

After Michael Browne and Bernard Kerik made a laughing stock out of the George W and America, George Jr was quoted as saying ‘ Penny will make a great director of FEMA.”  This was November 2005. But this time, the feds actually ran an extensive background on John Pennington, and discovered what we learned through years of sifting through public records. John Pennington is a dangerous sociopath with real anger management issues; anger he often takes out on women and children.

I never really thought much of George W Bush Jr. other than he’s a spolied little rich kid who never worked for a living. For the same reason, I couldn’t vote for Al Gore in 2000. Thus, I became one of Ralph Nader’s Raiders in 2000.

Fact is that I probably ran into John Pennington at the Republican National Convention that year in Philadelphia. I, and 1,000,000. Americans blocked the entrance to the Republican National Convention Center preventing many of George Jr’s delegates from accessing the convention center that year.

I was a proud member of Massachusettes ACT UP from UMASS, and had traveled all over the U.S. protesting what I believed to be unequal treatment of economically disadvantaged Americans in favor of corporations. I’m a strong believer that America should place ” people over profits.”

Strangely, I always had respect for George Bush Sr. Why is simple: George Sr is a well educated savey free thinker who listens to his opponents. Unlike his son, George Jr. , who was given a little too much growing up without working for it.  Hard work goes along way in molding one’s self esteem.


In 2005, Michael Browne was blamed for the deaths of thousands, because he was appointed to a position that he wasn’t qualified for.  So when George Jr. had to make a new appointment to FEMA Director, he looked to a devil wrapping himself with pages of the Bible, while at the same time molesting children and violently assaulting a pregnant woman in her third trimester, John E. Pennington.

For those reporting the news in Washington D.C just after George Bush Jr’s FEMA Directors caused so much misery to so many residents and their survivors in New Orleans, Bush Jr. was quoted as saying ” Penny would make a great Director.”

Because the feds didn’t want George Jr. to go through yet another scathing news story like he did when he chose Kerik to head Homeland Security (who ended up being prime suspect in a murder case and had direct ties to organized crime) and Michael Browne and his fake degrees with extensive skills in horse breeding debacles, any appointment would go through extensive background checks prior to Congressional Hearings.

As a result of the feds extensive background check on John Pennington, he was forced to resign from FEMA or be exposed in a very public way. John Pennington lied about his termination from FEMA stating that he and Tamara Doherty were caught misusing the FEMA credit cards.

This was simply a smoke screen to cover up what we just learned from a federal source over Labor Day Weekend.

John Pennington was terminated from FEMA because the feds learned what we reported on over the last seven years; pedophilia deviant uneducated child abuser who has sick fetish for kids, John Pennington. A sociopath who reminds me of Ted Bundy.

Unfortunately for Oso Washington residents,  George W Bush Jr.’s  administration thought it was ok to set him loose on Snohomish County residents just so George Jr didn’t have to suffer public press embarassment again.


On March 24, 2014, John Pennington caused 43 residents in Oso Washington to suffocate to death in Washington State’s most preventable loss of life natural disaster. Instead of mitigating loss to human life, John Pennington worked on his fraudulent online diploma, operated his personal business on the County’s dime and while using county resources and staff, violently assaulted children and women, and criminally harassed me right from Snohomish County Offices operating an online blog ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”  An online blog owned by Aaron Reardon but operated by Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg who plead guilty to bank fraud in 2005), John Pennington,  and Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers.

I believe John Pennington should be charged with negligent homicide for the 43 people he killed in the Oso mudslides.


Since John E. Pennington killed 43 Oso residents in the mudslides, we have searched his travel records and beleive he is responsible for missing children in four different states, and have ample evidence to state John Pennington is the man responsbile for the rape of that five year old child from Colwitz County Washington.

Sadly, John Pennington remains on the loose up here in Snohomis County. So long as John Pennington remains on the loose, I will continue to investigate and report on his criminal sexual deviant conduct.

Protecting Our children from a sociopath like John Pennington is worth every sacrifice we’ve made as a result  of shinning much needed sunshine on cockroaches who harm molest and abuse our kids.

Our Children’s mental well being has no price tag.  I agree with Hillary Clinton ” it takes a village to raise children.”


John Pennington’s trial in the Oso mudslide debacle will be live streamed by the Gold Bar Reporters starting in June 2016.  Stay tuned, it will be our pleasure to bring it “live” to our followers.

Snohomish County removes John Pennington has Director of Emergency Management after he caused deaths of 44 in Oso Mudslides

Many of you know me as the investigative journalist from Snohomish County Washington who managed to oust Executive Aaron Reardon after public records revealed that Aaron Reardon was illegally using county monies to fund two affairs, one with former Snohomish County employee Deanna Dawson and the other with terminated Whistleblower Tamara Dutton.

What many of our 6,000 plus readers may not know if that the reason we started investigating Aaron Reardon was because a extremely high ranking Washington State Democratic leader handed us documents proving that each of the women listed herein were in fact engaged in an extra-marital affair with Aaron Reardon, and he was misusing Snohomish County taxpayer monies to fund at least three affairs.

Aaron Reardon wasn’t really our concern until the Washington State very very high ranking Democrat gave us records showing that Reardon and Deanna Dawson were traveling around Europe on the taxpayers dime, ordering sex toys to their hotel room, attending an air show in Paris, charging expensive hotel rooms, and extravagant dinners all on the county taxpayer’s dime. For this reason, the Gold Bar Reporters were first to expose one of the largest corruption scandals in Washington State’s history.

With each sunrise the corruption scandal is spreading like a cancer metastasizing to the bone, and we just learned that the Washington State Bar illegally disseminated my application file to Snohomish County public officials Geoffrey Gibbs and Seth Fine, who disseminated the theft to Gold Bar’s city attorney Tom Gaafstra, and his employee Barbara Johnson then disseminated the stolen file to Crystal Hill.  A RICO complaint has been filed against Snohomish County, City of Gold Bar and the RICO gangs blog spot The Sky Valley Chronicle.

Washington State’s Public Disclosure Commission fined Reardon for this criminal conduct and the Democratic National Committee picked up the tab for his crimes.

But Reardon wasn’t really our investigative target, it was his political appointee John E. Pennington.

We started investigating John Pennington after our streets had not been plowed in one of Washington State’s largest snow storms.  Not one person in Gold Bar get out of their driveways to get to work, so I contacted the Governor asking if her street had been plowed because ours had not been!   Instead of getting an emergency order issued by John Pennington, I received one of the most unprofessional childish letters I had ever received from any sitting public official.

I placed a call to then council member Dorothy Croshaw who told me that Crystal Hill was engaged in n extra-martial affair with John Pennington, and she was not showing to council meetings.  Croshaw also stated that Pennington covered up the tampering of the City’s wells by having his friends Deputy Ross and Kevin Prentiss intentionally obstruct the investigation of the water boy Karl Marjelre because he too was sleeping with Crystal Hill.
At the time Crystal Hill was engaged in an extra-marital affair with John Pennington, Hill was also engaged in several extra-marital affairs with several other Snohomish County employees,  including Executive Aaron Reardon and Gold Bar’s then police Chief.

John Pennington’s inability to perform basic emergency management function so his job in December 2008 is the reason why we started investigating John Pennington’s shady criminal history.  Here’s a copy of the letter sent asking our officials if they were aware public information we uncovered on John Pennington.

Did you know that John Pennington was on the east coast performing his FEMA EMI contracts when 44 people in Oso Washington suffocated to death?  Did you know that Pennington used a portable hard drive while working at Sno County to avoid public disclosure? Did you know that Pennington criminally harassed Reardon’s opponents on his Sky Valley Chronicle blog spot instead of mitigating  mudslides?  Did you know that Pennington was charged with beating up his 3rd trimester pregnant wife Anne Laughlin while he was sitting DEM for Sno County?  Did you know that Anne Laughlin wrote declaration to the court stating that Pennington was taking showers with his 6 year old daughter ( all in his King county files)?  Did you know that Judge Lucas from Snohomish County illegally sealed John Pennington mental health records in Pennington v. Pennington?  Did you know that Pennington was kicked out of a church in San Diego California in late 1989 after two boys made sexual abuse allegations against him? Did you that Pennington worked on his bogus online American Military University ( same school featured on Education Inc in which Senator Tom Harkin called fraud)  using county resources and county time?  Did you know that while serving in the WA State Legislature Pennington was a member of the WA State Militia?  Did you know that Pennington’s payroll records including time sheets signed by Haackenson document that he’s been on paid ad leave since April 2014 ( according to a source to limit liability)?  Did you know that Pennington operated his own company titled JOHN E. PENNINGTON right from Snohomish County using our computers and fax machines; a company that he has yet to pay a single cent of income tax on to the State of WA?

County Council member Dave Somers and Public Records Officer Terri Lawrie recently confirmed that the County did not run any background check on John Pennington prior to his political appointment by the disgraced Aaron Reardon. 

FEMA also confirmed that George Bush simply allowed Senator Jennifer Dunn  to appoint John Pennington with out the FBI running a background on Pennington either.

If they had, they would have uncovered what we uncovered above.

In 2014, John Pennington has had five lawsuits naming him for Racketeering, dereliction of his official duties ( he killed 44 people in Oso mudslides).
