Why the Washington State Bar Association will be abolished

If you look at great human civilizations, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, you will see that most do not fail simply due to external threats but because of internal weakness, corruption, or a failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse.  Cory Booker


 

A couple of years ago, I decided to the best way to fight this massive racketeering organization, also known as the Washington State Bar Association, was to network with like minded open government residents.  One fact is clear, we can’t do it alone.

I can think of no better gift to leave behind than exposing corrupt government officials, forcing change where change is needed.

A few weeks ago, I heard my judicial hero, 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Justice Alex Kozinski, gave an interview to 60 Minutes reporter Lesley Stall.  I have been following many of Justice Kozkiski’s decisions, and each and every decision he writes I found myself agreeing with him.

In 2015, Justice Kozinski wrote a scathing opinion against King County Prosecutor Dan Satterburg and Mark Larsen’s deliberate withholding of evidence until after a person’s trial.  King County did this with the assistance of a career criminal/employee, Kelli Williams.

King County’s withholding of evidence to ensure convictions, making criminals out of non-criminals, was well stated by Justice Kozinski in the Joshua Frost decision.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, violated a well settles rules requiring the disclosure of information material to the case “ by willfully withholding evidence of Shaw’s domestic-violence plea deal and permitting Shaw to lie on the stand… they kept Shaw’s plea agreement secret until two days after Frost was convicted even though they had been signed well before the start of his trial ” Kozinski wrote.

Kozinski also wrote “the prosecution’s tactic was deliberate, not an oversight.”

Anyone who has been dealing with any County in Washington attempting to seek access to public records knows one thing, the agencies have placed criminals inside to answer citizens public records request.


 

For me, Alex Kozinski represents “justice’ and the only reason why this single mother spent thirteen ( 13) years in higher education, while working as a machinist on 3rd shift.  Strangely, Alex Kozinski was appointed by President Ronald Reagan, a man I viewed as demented way before the press finally decided to report it.  My point in stating this is fact is that I was not a supporter of the late Ronald Reagan, but in fact casted my first vote against him.  However, I do admire him for appointing the Honorable Justice Kozinski to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Justice Kozinski was born to a Jewish family from Bucharest, Romania, in July 1950.  In 1962, when he was 12, his parents, both Holocaust survivors, brought him to the United States. The family settled in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, where his father, Moses, ran a small grocery store. Kozinski, who had grown up as a committed communist in Bucharest, became what he described as “an instant capitalist” when he tasted gum and bananas.

We Americans are all immigrants unless you’re native American.  That’s what makes America unique, but the best part of America is what Thomas Jefferson dragged back with him from Europe, the First Amendment.

The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition.  It forbids Congress from both promoting one religion over others and also restricting an individual’s religious practices.  It guarantees freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely.  It also guarantees the right of citizens to assemble peaceably and to petition their government.

Hence why I admire and respect Alex Kozinski, as he understands that the First Amendment of U.S. Constitution’s provision of writing and speaking freely without interference is essential to any free society.  Without it, we are no better than China or Saudi Arabia.

At the center of rotten onion is the Washington State Bar Association monopolized by criminals withholding evidence to ensure convictions and to assist Association Washington Cities ( AWC) and the Washington State Attorney General’s Office with going after honest lawyers to limit liability.  It’s a racketeering organization controlled by free market participants like convicted frauders like attorney G. Geoffrey Gibbs ( see story below).

Interesting to note that G. Geoffrey Gibbs has been sued for racketeering six times. But instead of being disbarred like any criminal would be, Washington State illegally assigned him as a Commissioner Pro Tem and his law firm heads of the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association.  This to ensure Snohomish County’s racketeering scam is hidden from Washington State’s public disclosure laws.


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”  Margaret Mead.

This year We will have our first annual meeting, and are now linked up with like minded people in almost every county in Washington State.

We must do everything in our power to make sure criminals misusing our public offices are brought to justice regardless of the cost to ourselves.  Our children’s children deserve to live in a democracy free from corrupt government officials, not under Hitler’s regime.

Stay tuned, as we are going to abolish the Washington State Bar Association, as the center of the racketeering criminal ring is the Washington State Bar Association.


Here’s just one example of a high ranking Washington State Bar Association members crimes against Washingtonians.

 

attorneys, Sister Sara Di Vittorio and Geoffrey Gibbs, all things evil inside Washington State Bar

UPDATE: It’s been a very long eight years to piece together why Gold Bar Washington is going broke hiding public records. . . this week, we finally have the missing link to the largest corruption scandal in Washington State history.

With no surprise, it involves former Washington State Attorney General “Sister Sara” Di Vittorio tampering with public records inside the Department of Corrections (DoC) and at Snohomish County Dept. of Emergency Management, according to a whistleblower who came forward last week “ Crystal Hill disseminated your Washington State Bar application and investigative file to John Pennington and Dept of Corrections employee Lonn Turner…”

But then the WSBA got involved in helping Geoffrey Gibbs and Seth Fine cover up their criminal racketeering conduct – quashing criminal sabotaging of the city’s water system as a favor to then Executive Aaron Reardon- a US Federal attorney, now working for the WSBA, was able to misuse her connections with the fusion center.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fusion_center

The racketerists herein illegally gained access into a “spider” of information on Block’s family members attempting to extort Block just like they did to former council member in 2007.  But by now, Crystal Hill ( convicted of bank fraud using an alias of Berg in 2005) had illegally possessed and disseminated medical files via Washington State emails in March 2009, the Washington State Bar to hide their criminal racketeering ( wire) crimes hired Scmipff to help conceal public records/files. Files that were illegally obtained ( without a warrant) and illegally disseminated via electronic means. Dissemination of medical files for a Mass residents is prohibited and is a federal felony, amounts to Rackeetering, punishable by 20-30 years in federal prison.

A file that Geoffrey Gibbs and Seth Fine both members of the Washington State Bar Boards in 2009 stole then disseminated the stolen file to Gold Bar’s then lawyer’s paralegal Barbara Johnson ( Weed Gaafstra, Benson) who then disseminated the stolen files to Crystal Hill, who then disseminated the stolen files to former Gold Bar council member Lonn Turner ( at LTurner@DoC.wa.gov) and disgraced Snohomish County political appointee John E. Pennington  (man responsible for the rape of a 5 year old child from Cowlitz County, Washington).

While working at the DoC, Sister Sara tampered with public records as a ” risk management” a felony in Washington State and certainly Racketeering.  According to a whistleblower, to wire crimes for high ranking WSBA members and disgraced former Washington State lobbyist G. Geoffrey Gibbs ( see below).

Unfortunately for the WSBA, Crystal Hill, John Pennington, Lonn Turner, G. Geoffrey Gibbs, and Sister Sara Di Vittorio, Gold Bar had a clerk ( who was caught via hidden camera stealing from Gold Bar resulting in her termination in 2012) who wasn’t sharpest tool in the shed. . .  it will be interesting to see if the Courts are going to help us abolish the WSBA or just simply reform it?

Everett attorney and WA State Bar Board member Geoffrey Gibbs caught red handed via public records filing false statements with Judicial Ethics Commission, and violating Sherman Anti-Trust to assist Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office in going after any lawyer who exposes corruption involving attorney Geoffrey Gibbs, the criminals inside the WA State Bar ( Linda Eide, Lin O’Dell, and Doug Ende), and Snohomish County criminal Racketeering outfit (an RICO Enterprise operating from Snohomish County Judicial and Prosecutor’s Office).

In 2009, attorney Geoffrey Gibbs misused his political offices to assist Crystal Hill Pennington, John E. Pennington, Aaron Reardon, and Joe Beavers to cover up the Karl Marjerle sabotaging the City of Gold Bar’s water system.  Racketeering captured in public records.

Attorney Geoffrey Gibbs has been sued for Racketeering five times in the last two years for his criminal conduct.  An email from Everett Prosecutor Michael Fischer from G. Geoffrey Gibbs has  Gibbs sending an email to a Prosecutor demanding that he file criminal assault charges against Carolyn Ryggs so that she will have to expend a very large retainer to hire counsel. Because Gibbs was in a land dispute with the Ryggs after public records confirmed that was using Judge Michael Downes to steal Carolyn Ryggs’s land.

Geoffrey Gibbs’s fraud in the 1990s as illustrated by the Washington Public Disclosure Commission is well documented below.

Now, Geoffrey Gibbs criminal Enterprise and public records confirm that Gibbs and Prosecutor Seth Fine are the main reason why Snohomish County yields over 40 % of disciplined lawyer inside the WA State Bar, while the highest populated county, King County ( Seattle) , only yields 12 %. According to our counsel, clear Sherman Anti-Trust violations; a federal felony.

We’re also working on a story linking the Klan to the ” Ok Boys Home” a story worth waiting for.

Just another stellar example of why the Washington State Bar will be abolished.

My step-grandpa in his later years was getting a little less coherent, when I was younger he was a very prejudiced man, he only loved one black man and that was Robert, but once a black family moved into the neighborhood he sold his house and built a new one in Valparaiso, in Sherwood Forest no less. Although I never once heard him use a derogatory term, the message was clear.

He owned the Hy-Speed car wash in Gary Indiana close to the Jackson home, yes as in the Jackson 5, Janet, and the creepy parents. I would go over and play with them and it drove my Grampa Joe nuts, he’d make me take a shower before I got in the car and I was never allowed to eat anything there or go inside their house.

One day when I was back home visiting I walked into the den and Grandpa was sitting there with the biggest smile on his face. He was watching Michael Jackson. I said Grandpa whatcha watching, he looked at me and said. This is a great country, do you know how I know that? I said no Grandpa I don’t. He points to the TV and said there is that little boy you used to play with. I said I know Grandpa but what does that have to do with anything? He said only in America can a poor little black boy grow up to be a rich white woman and then he smiled. As much as I didn’t like the message he had a point.

It’s like that with G. Geoffrey Gibbs, only in Washington can a convicted lobbyist, grow up to be on the Board of Governor’s and treasurer of the Washington State Bar Association, then become a Snohomish County Commissioner and get some of the most lucrative contracts in the county

Waste management would be foaming at the mouth if they truly understood the amount of trash just rolling around our county

George “G.” Geoffrey Gibbs. a lobbyist took many a politician, lawyer and judge on trips to Sunriver resorts, fishing trips in BC and on bus rides down to Jubitz Truck Stop/Ponderosa Lounge where having a hooker or a “lot lizard would simply be redundant. A reporter said as much but I checked with a former trucker and he immediately got embarrassed, turned red and told me to never go there. I’m going to take that to mean the reporter was telling the truth.

Looking at Pennington’s divorce records it shows that his then wife also complained to the courts that she has gotten a sexually transmitted disease from him 3 times during their marriage, I guess we know why now.

Remember, Pennington and Appelwick were “Dear Friends” since the 90’s

So… behold the power of the newspaper archives:

We found numerous stories about Mr Gibbs, Judge Appelwick, Joe King and few other power players in this state. Stories that have basically been “washed” from the internet which is a common ploy used by many politicians and lawyers to hide the truth.

Seems our school super Randy Dorn was one of his recipients (which might explain why so many disgraced senators, and state legislators end up in the Education system: some midterm

Other power players include but are not limited to:

Senator Al Bauer who oddly enough is out and about filing ethics complaints I guess he would know…

Representative Joe King who left Olympia to start his own lobbying company or political strategy company.

Although Appeals Court Judges seems to have gotten the most benefit from this relationship, even today…

Not only does Gibbs have an Appelwick in his pocket he has learned well and placed people from his current law firm on:

The Public Disclosure Commission,

The Commission on Judicial Conduct,

The Washington State Bar Association,

Anyway here are some of the newspaper clippings we have gotten so far. I have literally 1000’s more documents thanks to the hard work of someone who spent the day gathering the records… There are more records but I am still trying to put them in albums so that they can follow some type of pattern and are better understood.

On that note, sorry I have been AWOL but please remember I am working on quite a few huge stories, and I write this paper mostly by myself but trust me when I say: It will be worth the wait.

Arthur West does Gold Bar

Long time open government supporter and activist Arthur West has filed suit against the City of Gold Bar, after Snohomish County Superior Court held in Block v Gold Bar that the City violated Our Court’s holding in Hobbs v State Auditor, 183 Wn.App. 925 (2014).

The City’s public records officer is Joe Beavers, Gold Bar’s former Mayor who has misappropriated over $1,000,000.00 hiding computer crimes, amounting to Racketeering, involving Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud in 2005) and disgraced former Director John E. Pennington ( man responsible for causing 43 people in the Oso Washington mudslides to suffocate to death and the rape of a 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County).

In Hobbs, Our Court held that an agency must give a reasonable estimate of time. The agency’s estimate must clearly must state when the records requested are expected to be released, but once it fails to do so, it’s deemed to be an automatic violation of RCW 42.56.  See Hobbs v State Auditor.

Since 2010, the City of Gold Bar, mainly Joe Beavers, has been refusing to provide a timely estimate, but instead simply places hundreds of records requests on the City’s priority log without a specific date in violation of Hobbs, refusing to answer requests for over five years in many cases.

As just one example of just how blatant the City’s disregard for the Public Records Act ( PRA) has become, in 2014 I requested a copy of the City’s Budget from former Mayor Linda Loen, a simple records request that still remains outstanding as of today.

In several instances, the Gold Bar Reporters caught Beavers and the former clerk, Laura Kelly (who was fired for theft of public funds), answering public records requests for friends, including former Mayor Crystal Hill and Sky Valley Chronicle owner Ron Fejfar, without ever being placed on the City’s priority log.

Joe Beavers ( former financial officer who bankrupted an engineering firm in Clinton Connecticut, 2001, forcing his early retirement), Crystal Hill ( Nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2005),  Linda Eide at the Washington State Bar Association ( caught destroying and altering evidence in attorney Robert Grundstien’s case), attorneys Margaret King and Michael Kenyon, and Sky Valley Chronicle owner Ron Fejfar are being sued under RICO with depositions expected to start early in 2017.

In March 2014, Arthur West was given Washington Coalition for Open Government Key Award for his continuous and outstanding contributions in advancing open government issues here in Washington State.

On March 11, 2014, Snohomish County Court held in Block v Gold Bar, that the City of Gold Bar had violated RCW 42.56, when it refused to provide records to me for over five years.

The City’s trouble have just begun as the City has ten additional requests in the same boat – over five years old- and continues to thumb its nose at the Public Records Act (PRA) by refusing to provide a estimate as to when the City intends to answer records requests. This violates our Court’s holding in Hobbs.

As of today in Block v Gold Bar, the City has withheld over 330 emails for over 2000 days, and recently turned over records with metadata dating back to May 2010 ( in the same year the records were actually requested).  Metadata is to electronic records as DNA is to unlocking human existence; it tells us when the records were created and who created them.

One can only speculate as to why the City refused to provide records it had readily had available in its possession for over five years.  Stupid is a stupid does, but one resident said  “ I saw Joe Beavers at the doctor’s office, a doctor that treats dementia related diseases.”

Lately, pictures of Joe Beavers illustrates just how mentally unfit he is.  One open government supporter said  “ he smells and looks like a homeless man.”

Snohomish County Superior Court held in March that the City violated the PRA, thus I am entitled to costs, and other fees associated with suit, including attorney fees at $220 per hours plus a per day penalty of up to $105 per day for each of the 330 plus emails withheld.
The Gold Bar Reporters commend Arthur West for shinning much needed sunlight on the cockroaches from Gold Bar who are spitting on open government concepts I view more valuable than life itself.

I also thank Joe Beavers for posting defamatory articles on the Sky Valley Chronicle as I believe this gave rise to Mr. West’s interest in the cockroaches who have ruining Gold Bar.

In 2016, Our Court also held that each page of unlawfully withheld records calls for a per day penalty for each record withheld. In my case, Beavers unlawfully withheld public records relating to WSBA complaints he ordered former Gold Bar clerk Penny Brenton to write, misusing City staff and resources, thus making each complaint subject to the PRA.

 

Penalty for improperly withholding public record can be calculated on a per page basis.

See Wade’s Eastside Gun Shop v. Department of Labor and Industries, ___ Wn.2d ___ (3/24/2016) – When the Department of Labor and Industries failed to provide certain records of an investigation (which the court determined were not exempt) a penalty was imposed calculated according to the number of pages found in each document. On appeal, the supreme court upheld the trial court’s decision, noting that the trial court has discretion to determine what is a relevant record, and it did not abuse that discretion by imposing penalties on a per page basis. The court also held that the records were not categorically exempt as investigative records since the Department of Labor and Industries did not prove that withholding them was essential to effective law enforcement.
