Susan Bassi

By Michael G. Stogner
For a small percentage of America Susan Bassi’s report will sound familiar, Either because you personally have experienced a similar path or you know of someone who has. Most likely you have stopped communicating with them because the subject matter is to disturbing/overwhelming or you think they must have deserved it.
Susan Bassi is a true American Hero. She has been working to Help Others. Here is her FB post from this morning.
152,000 views and nearly 2K comments. We are getting better at reporting what mainstream media will not.
I posted this video on Sunday. You can see what happened in five days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPPX_rL3ujU&t=15s
For those of you who do not know, I have been part of a team trying to get mainstream media to report on our family courts for the past five years. I estimate I have spent over 4000 hours meeting with reporters, editors and publishers from the following news organizations:
San Jose Inside
NBC Bay Area
ABC10
CBS
KTVU Fox 2
Washingtonpost
NewYork/Times
100Reporters
TMZ
Los Angeles Times
SeattleTimes.com
The Mercury News
San Francisco Chronicle
The Sacramento Bee
Boston Globe Subscribers
@CenterforInvestigativeReporting
KQED
and any reporter, editor or publisher who would ever give me 5 mins. I tried to explain how your children were being stolen. how your homes were being seized and your lives destroyed and yet it seems nobody was interested in paying for the ink.

Then I was arrested and have been prosecuted for 3 years and I met some folks watching cops on

YouTube ☑️

and they listened and tried to make me better at pitching your stories. They also probably paid a price for trying to help after snitches and informants including Scott Largent tried to take them down, but they were resilient and persistent and the most noble photojournalists I have ever met.

San Joaquin Valley

It took me 200 hearings in family court. 29 hearings in criminal court and who would have ever known a divorce and prosecution for a local rule made by a bunch of dirty lawyers would have taught me more than that

UCDavis degree or that UC Berkeley law degree I gave up on to follow my husband into farming businesses.
But as they like to say on my channel, I guess I got woke and educated all at once. And this time I was smart enough to get it on video. So for those of you who dealt with these lawyers, bailiffs, custody evaluators, CPAs, bailiffs , and private judges, I heard you. I am no longer waiting for someone else. We are going to get these stories.
So for any cop, judge, lawyer or dirty DA who thinks you got away, think again. I have a camera and I am not afraid to use it.
Thank you all who shared, subbed and commented. We now have more views on this video than San Jose Inside. San Jose Mercury and NBC news have combined!

San Mateo County It’s Time.

By Michael G. Stogner

You know it’s time when you see the Captain of the Ship putting on his life vest and sneaking onto the lifeboat, or the Pilot putting on his parachute.

We all know that we are responsible for our own safety, The Cavalry  is not coming.

The Federal, State, and County Government has Failed to provide Testing, Contact Tracing, PPE to all those who need it.

SACRAMENTO — The California Senate on Wednesday joined the Assembly in deciding not to return from its summer recess next week, citing the continued spread of the coronavirus, which has now infected several staffers and members in the Legislature.

The decision was announced on the same day that a second Assembly member, Republican Tom Lackey of Palmdale, acknowledged through a spokesman that he has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

San Mateo County is home to San Francisco International Airport with direct flights from Wuhan. San Jose International Airport also has direct flights from Wuhan.

San Mateo County has Finally reached 0.0 Positivity July 10, 2020 Total Tested 9

San Mateo County has had been told to TEST 1500 people per day. July 8th they tested 141. They have only accomplished that 6 days. All Five County Supervisor are satisfied with those results. It’s Time for the Local Leaders the Mayors to protect the Residents in their Community, Provide Testing in their Cities. Enforce the State and County Health Orders.

July 10, 2020 SMC Tested only 9 People

SMC 0.0% COVID-19 Posiytivity Rate.

This is a PANDEMIC start acting like it.

San Mateo County Beaches Closed 4th of July. Gov. Newsom closes Parking Lots.

By Michael G. Stogner

AP_18152108146827-e1546027846328

Governor Gavin Newsom announced this morning that all Parking facilities at state beaches on the San Mateo County Coastline will be closed for the July 4 weekend. Local leaders are expected to close all SMC beaches and Gov. Newsom has stated he will close state beaches in Counties closing local beaches.

No Parking equals No Beaches

If you don’t live on the coast Stay Away, Stay Home, Protect the residents that do.

If you see Brent Turner make sure you tell him Thank You. A perfect example of one single person can make a difference.

Same goes for Pacifica Mayor Deidre Martin a true elected Leader.

From County Manager Mike Callagy to me this AM. “So like Dr. Scott Morrow has said, assume everyone you come in contact with and everything you touch outside your home is infected and use the precautions listed to prevent yourself from becoming ill.

San Mateo County Prosecutor COVID-19 Positive.

By Michael G. Stogner

As we all know by now, Anybody can get COVID-19, There is No Cure, No Vaccine.

San Mateo County Courthouses should be CLOSED. This is not the first time we have said this. Tempetures should be taken outside before people are allowed in. Currently they are NOT, Why? 

June 19, 2020 A San Mateo County Prosecutor tested Positive for COVID-19 and she notified San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. According to an article by Aldo Toledo of Bay Area News Group Five days later June 24, 2020 Steve Wagstaffe got around to informing a few people who were exposed.

In response to my question this morning , When did you notify the Sheriff’s Office? D.A. Wagstaffe said “I believe the court, defense attorneys and SO formally learned of the positive result for my staff member two days after we learned of it.  When we learned of the positive result two days earlier, we immediately notified County Health who did the contact tracing process to notify anyone who might have been exposed.”

Were all the potential Jurors informed?

Were all the people who entered the 400 County Center Building June 15-19 notified?

June 16, 2020 the Prosecutor and 15-20 people were in a courtroom for a Preliminary Hearing. Think about who is in a Courtroom, The Judge, Clerk, Court Reporter, Sheriff Deputy Bailiff, Prosecutors, Attorneys for the Defense, Witnesses etc. The Prosecutor moves around the Courtroom and the 400 County Center Building like a butterfly. She also left the courtroom to attend another case in a different courtroom with a new set of people to expose. To get to the other courtroom she passed all the people (Hundreds) in the hall who were there for Jury Selection. She would have also gone to her office before court started where 180 co-workers are based.

Attorney Charles Smith who was one of the many people exposed in that courtroom with the prosecutor that day was informed 5 days after she informed Steve Wagstaffe.

Charles Smith “There is too much secrecy in San Mateo County.” “That’s an issue obviously, considering a lot of us are risking our health going into the Courthouse.”

Everyone who enters the 400 County Center Building is Risking their Health. What is the percentage of air that is recirculating?

Recount Measure W Requirements.

Mr. Stogner,

To trigger a recount, a written request must be filed with the Elections Division within the five calendar days following the completion of the canvass. The request must specify on behalf of which position on a measure (affirmative or negative) it is filed. The request may, but need not, specify the order in which the precincts shall be recounted.

The recount would be public, conducted by a recount board consisting of four county voters appointed by the Chief Elections Officer. All ballots and any other relevant materials may be examined upon request, and the requestor may challenge any ballot for defects (ambiguity, incompleteness, etc.), with a final determination to be made by the Chief Elections Officer.

The requestor must, before the recount starts and then before each day it continues, deposit with the Elections Division a sum determined by the Chief Elections Officer as necessary to cover the daily expenses of the recount. If upon completion of the recount the requestor’s position on the measure wins out contra the official canvass, the requestor receives a complete refund; otherwise they only receive back whatever was not consumed by actual expenses.

I estimate that daily cost would be approximately $1,160 for one manual recount board. Additional boards can be requested. A computer recount cost is $300 per hour. Depending on the scope of the recount and other requests, there may be additional costs above and beyond the personnel costs listed above. Any additional costs will be mutually agreed to by the requesting party and the county before the recount is commenced.

The requestor can bring the recount to an end at any time. The results of a recount are declared null and void unless every vote in which the contest appeared is recounted.

I hope this information helps. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.

Everyone should support the recount no matter which way you voted, The Yes on W should support it after spending $1.5M and the No on W who raised $5,700.  Level Playing Field

San Mateo Daily Journal, How hard can it be? It’s simple math. 286,210 Ballots

Vote counters move closer to final tally

Election results largely hold steady, Measure W inches closer to passage

  • Updated
106709_San Mateo County

A little less than 17,300 ballots are left to count at the Elections Office, according to an update Friday afternoon in which results from the last tally largely held steady for some close races.

After holding onto the third of three open seats in the Redwood City Council race in recent updates, Diana Reddy extended her lead over Rick Hunter to 104 votes. The pair have been battling for third place since Election Day.

One of two closely watched tax measures, Measure W, a half-cent sales tax for SamTrans and transportation improvements, inched even closer toward passage, earning 66.55 percent of the vote. Measure V further solidified its position with 67.73 percent of voters in support of the $298 parcel tax for the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District. Both require two-thirds approval, or 66.67 percent of the vote, to pass.

Leads established by Richa Awasthi in her race for the second of two open seats on the Foster City Council and Flor Nicolas in her race for the third of three open seats on the South San Francisco City Council persisted, with South San Francisco Councilman Pradeep Gupta is still appearing to fall short of re-election.

In Redwood City, Giselle Hale, who has 18.2 percent and a total of 11,716 votes, and Diane Howard, who has 17.1 percent and 11,006 total votes, have held onto their shares of the electorate. Reddy has 16.05 percent and 10,332 votes compared to Hunter’s 15.89 percent and 10,228 votes, with 104 votes separating them.

In the Foster City Council contest, Sanjay Gehani led from the beginning and remains solidly the top vote getter with 26.81 percent and 4,940 total votes. Awasthi’s lead narrowly slightly in the battle for the second open seat with this most recent update. She currently has 19.31 percent of the vote and 3,557 total votes and is followed by Patrick Sullivan, who has 18.29 percent of the vote and 3,369 total votes.

In the South San Francisco City Council race, results largely held from the last update with frontrunner incumbent Mark Addiego remaining the top vote getter, followed by challengers Mark Nagales and Nicolas respectively. Though he narrowed the gap between himself and Nicolas by five votes, incumbent Gupta remained in fourth place with 7,561 votes, behind Nicolas by 143 votes and Nagales by 497 votes.

Known as Measure II, the bond measure designed to finance reconstruction of the Millbrae Recreation Center made a slight gain to earn 62.45 percent of the vote, according to last count. It needs two-thirds approval to pass.

In Half Moon Bay, Robert Brownstone, who has 19.22 percent and 2,383 total votes, already clinched the third open seat over Virginia Turezyn, who has 15.85 percent and 1,965 total votes. Incumbents Deborah Penrose and Debbie Ruddock were the top two vote getters.

More than 260,000 ballots have been received so far. Of the ballots received, 242,722 have been counted. More results are scheduled to come out Saturday, Nov. 24, and on other days if needed.

Measure W Failing. Great news for the taxpayers of San Mateo County.

samtrans-1-1533683163-3178

Update 11/9/2018 Without knowing how many ballots were mailed it is impossible to have confidence in this election. As of 9:00AM there are at least 146, 378 ballots to be tallied.

The elections office has just posted it’s official update at 4:30PM today. Mark Church is still refusing to say how many ballots were mailed out. He is only saying that he has received 215,480 and counted/tallied only 111,637 that leaves 103,843 ballots remaining to be tallied.

Total Yes Votes 69,132 = 65.65%

Total No Votes 36,173 = 34.35%

The Yes on Measure W Campaign with total reported funding of $1,500,000 of that $650,000 of Taxpayer money used against the Taxpayers.

The No on Measure W Campaign with a reported total funding of $5,700

Thank You to Jack Hickey for warning the public.

More than $1,500,000 of taxpayer money was spent on a campaign run by TBWB Strategies. See: http://www.tbwb.com/approach. The campaign phase of their strategy was step 4 in their strategy. This is “electioneering” and should be a felony misappropriation of public money.

Vote NO on “W”

 

The Elections Office should be Audited.

SMC Grand Jury 2012 warned the residents about the elected officials misleading the voters.

Ca. Governor Debate Newsom & Cox

 

gavin newsom john cox_1535589141878.jpg_96034593_ver1.0_900_675This was the only debate I found, seems strange for such an important position that no televised debates took place.

I have learned from San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Heinz Puschendorf who ran as a write in candidate for Sheriff in the June 2018 election, to not vote until the last day.

Do your own homework, think for yourself, vote.
