I see “$10M CASH” of “federal taxpayer dollar purchased productions” I don’t see a big mess, I don’t see “Surplus”
Money Laundering was the first thought that came to my mind, when I read and watched ABC 7 News report.
This is from ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes who first reported this Thursday January 13, 2022 at 6:12 P.M.
“We don’t want anybody to take this and put it on eBay because that’s in essence money laundering, you’re taking federal taxpayer dollar purchased productions and you’re turning it into cash for you,” Brown said, continuing, “We’re not going to allow that, but what we do want to do is get this into the hands of any organization that serves the community. If you’re out there serving the homeless or doing a food kitchen or a shelter, if you’re treating patients, any of that.”
Who in San Mateo County Government gave James Brown the $10,000,000 of PPE aka federal taxpayer dollar purchased productions?
This action happened before January 13, 2022 at 6:00 P.M. When Wine Country Marines Facebook page said
Large Donation of PPE Updated: 2 days ago
The Wine Country Marines are excited to announce a partnership with the San Mateo County Department of Emergency Management. Specifically, the County DEM has graciously donated to the Wine Country Marines a very large supply of excess inventory of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that they were provided by FEMA, to be shared with the community at large.
So James Brown (whoever he is) announced San Mateo County Graciously Donated to the (Wine Country Marines) whoever they are the $10,000,000.00 of PPE. 12 minutes before Dan Noyes reported the story.
It’s no Secret that the San Mateo Daily Journal and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe want Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos to be Re-Elected in the next election.
SMDJ knows this is not quiet the truth, Bolanos — appointed in 2016, Somebody removed this News Release from the Governments website before the July 12, 2016 Board of Supervisor Meeting, John Maltbie was the Clerk to the Supervisors and John Beiers San Mateo County Counsel would have word crafted and final approval of the agenda item. Who removed Michelle Durand’s press release, and Who word crafted the agenda Item. Remember Don Horsley and Carole Groom were asked to RECUSE themselves. They didn’t.
Bolanos — appointed in 2016, elected in 2018 and now running for reelection — said he also routinely receives outlandish emails and communications from people which he said he’s learned to ignore.
Now vindicated, Bolanos said he’s thankful the DA’s office investigated the case and hopes the public will be less inclined to believe such allegations in the future.
“I’m glad the District Attorney’s Office investigated it and determined that there was absolutely no merit to me being involved with that organization,” Bolanos said. “Hopefully people learn from this and recognize that just because somebody says something and tweets something it may not be true. People should do some critical thinking before they assume something.”
This sounded familiar,
“just because somebody says something and tweets something it may not be true.“
I’ve been saying this for just over 20 years, “Just because somebody says something is true, doesn’t mean that it is.” I can’t take credit for the statement I first heard it in court by a very popular San Carlos Attorney named Jeff Cost. He credited it to his father.
The SMDJ in 2018 Endorsed Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff which is fine, but they also printed a False statement about Him being “OUTSIDE the entire time.” Operation Dollhouse, FBI Sting Las Vegas Nevada, April 21, 2007.
Everybody and their Mother knows that is a Lie.
Here is the entire SMDJ article from December 15, 2021
San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office solves mystery over Oath Keeper account Belmont resident responsible for creating memberships for sheriff, police chief to far-right group By Sierra Lopez Daily Journal staff 3 hrs ago Carlos Bolanos A Belmont resident was responsible for registering Sheriff Carlos Bolanos and former Belmont Police Chief Dan DeSmidt with a far-right anti-government organization as a reminder of their oath to the Constitution, an investigation by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office found.“ Anybody who knows me knows I’m not of the persuasion that would join an organization like that. They knew it was a joke but unfortunately, it got taken seriously and it wasn’t funny anymore,” Bolanos said. In October, allegations that Bolanos was affiliated with the Oath Keepers, a national right-wing militia group, were first made online after his email was discovered in a leaked database published and stored by the anti-secrecy organization Distribution Denial of Secrets. At the time, Bolanos denied being a member of the organization and asserted that someone else must have registered him, though he was unsure of who would have done so. Bolanos said a news organization discovered that a third party likely registered him with the organization and he immediately turned that information over to the DA’s office.Additional information was also shared with the office from the San Mateo County Counsel’s Office, Bill Massey, chief investigator with the DA’s office, said. The department did not go through the leaked database but Massey said they did reach out to the Oath Keepers, which was unresponsive. What their investigation did find was that a Belmont resident registered Bolanos and DeSmidt with the organization in 2017. The Belmont Police Department was also made aware of the incident back in 2017, but declined to pursue the case at the time because they were familiar with the individual’s behavior, Massey said.“Without going into detail, he’s a very outspoken individual. He has some views that may not be mainstream so he’s known in the city of Belmont,” Massey said about the person who created the accounts for the officials.When questioned, Massey said the individual confessed to registering the public officials with the organization with the intent of reminding them of their oath to the U.S. Constitution. Massey said they verified the individual was responsible for the accounts by reviewing packages from the Oath Keepers which were addressed to Bolanos and DeSmidt but sent to the Belmont resident’s home.Massey said the DA’s office was investigating the issue of impersonation and identity theft of Bolanos given that the Sheriff’s Office couldn’t investigate a case in which the sheriff is the victim. Under Penal Code 528.5, the individual could have been charged with a misdemeanor for impersonating an individual online without permission with the intent of harming, intimidating, threatening or defrauding another person.But the DA’s office opted to not file charges because they could not verify that the individual’s actions were done maliciously. Additionally, the investigation fell outside a one-year statute of limitation embedded in the penal code because the Belmont Police Department was aware of the issue around 2017, triggering the statute countdown.Bolanos — appointed in 2016, elected in 2018 and now running for reelection — said he also routinely receives outlandish emails and communications from people which he said he’s learned to ignore.Now vindicated, Bolanos said he’s thankful the DA’s office investigated the case and hopes the public will be less inclined to believe such allegations in the future.“I’m glad the District Attorney’s Office investigated it and determined that there was absolutely no merit to me being involved with that organization,” Bolanos said. “Hopefully people learn from this and recognize that just because somebody says something and tweets something it may not be true. People should do some critical thinking before they assume something.”firstname.lastname@example.org(650) 344-5200 ext. 106
Here is a simple question for Reporter Sierra Lopez, What is the name of the Belmont Resident?
Pretty cool to Solve a Mystery with an Unnamed and Uncharged Belmont Resident.
December 13, 2021 in Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo courtroom 2G, Attorney Tony Serra made the above statement in the People vs. Juan Pablo Lopez case NF433910A. I must admit it was refreshing to hear the truth spoken in a courtroom. Everybody and their mother knows that is true.
San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Kimberly Perrotti, knows it true, she didn’t object to the statement or ask that it be stricken.
These e-mails show the Special Relationship that existed in April of 2007 and still exist today. San Mateo County District Attorneys James P. Fox and Steve Wagstaffe sent them before San Mateo County Residents ever heard about Operation Dollhouse. They NEVER asked, Why were you two INSIDE that single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 21, 2007 @ 9:30PM?
It was either for sex with under aged Human Trafficked Sex Slaves which Munks said they had no intention to pay for, or it was a Drug Deal Busted by the FBI? The SMC Government and the media have never been interested to find out, Why did they go inside that house.
I don’t remember the exact date when I first met Therese Dyer but I do remember where it was. It was in line to enter the 400 County Center Building in Redwood City, California where we both were going to speak to the Board of Supervisors of San Mateo County during the two minute Public Comment.
I remember thinking, The Five Supervisors and their Staff should meet with Therese right away and get to the bottom of this subject matter she just reported to them, Corruption in San Mateo County, specifically in the District Attorney’s Office, The Courts, The Investigators etc. Most reasonable thinking residents would want the Supervisors to look into this to find out if her statements were true and accurate, and if they were too FIX IT.
I knew Therese was a Veteran, and had served on the San Mateo County Grand Jury.
It was at that BOS Meeting that I thought a simple fix would be for the Supervisors to set up a Public Data Base where all Notifications of wrong doing by San Mateo County Employees/Elected Officials could be filed. As anyone who has ever taken the time and energy to go to a BOS Meeting on a Tuesday morning at 9:00 AM to have the opportunity to Inform the Supervisors of Criminal behavior or other serious subjects knows, 2 minutes goes by pretty fast, and you might be a little nervous. Most likely you can not come close to saying everything you want to say.
I remember being so nervous before I made Public Comment to the Supervisors of SMC, reporting Corruption of some Law Enforcement Employees, and every time I spoke the Supervisors would say “Thank You, Mr. Stogner for your comments.” I became more comfortable once I realized that they couldn’t care less about the Corruption.
A Public Data Base however would allow you to state everything, Names, dates, allegations etc. The other benefit is that information would be Public.
I can say this about Therese Dyer, for the last 20 years that I am aware of, She has been doing her very best to inform the Residents of San Mateo County of the Corruption in the Government.
San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors David Canepa aka “Showboater” knows a great opportunity to Fund Raise when he sees one. Today he is holding his official Kickoff Campaign for Congress. He might as well, he has done nothing to make San Mateo County Safer or to Eliminate Corruption in San Mateo County that I am aware of.
Most recently in the (retired) San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez criminal case which has been going on for 7 years, Superior Court Judge Joseph Scott, Court Clerk Katrina Bihl, and Court Reporter Jocelyne Fakouri, Conspired to commit a crime, then did commit the crime of PC115A filing a False Instrument with the court which by itself is a Felony. All three made false statements under the penalty of Perjury. David Canepa thinks that is cool. I don’t.
A reasonable person would think the President of the Board of Supervisors would be Interested in making San Mateo County Safer for the ordinary resident, Nobody is Above the law, etc. Not David Canepa. Over the the last 7 years I have reported the Illegal conduct against Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, by multiple San Mateo County Employees, I can’t recall a single time that David Canepa showed any interest.
When Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. San Mateo County’s George Floyd, was killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his Public Information Officer Immediately issued two False Press Releases both omitting the sixth very involved CSO Joseph Gonzales. David Canepa approved of that behavior.
I took the above video, I drove up from Monterey County to attend that meeting I had every intention of speaking on behalf of Chinedu V. Okobi and his family. I sat in the front row next to SMCSO Deputy Heintz Puschendorf the entire meeting, after listening to all of the speakers and watching Supervisor David Canepa refusing to pay any attention to all of the speakers, He wouldn’t even look at them, I chose not to speak.
San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus and SMCSO ret. Captain Jeffrey C. Kearnan and Supervisor President David Canepa all thought it was a Great Idea for the Sheriff’s Office to Investigate Itself. A reasonable person would know that is NUTS.
Congresswoman Jackie Speier announced this week she will not run for re-election.
In 2008 she demanded the Board of Supervisors Investigate the April 21, 2007, FBI Sting called Operation Dollhouse where Under Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was Caught and Detained Inside a single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada at 9:30 PM. To this day 14 years later nobody has asked Carlos G. Bolanos why he entered that disgusting smelling home.
It was either to have sex with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor or a more logical reason is it was a Drug Deal of 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets for $25,000 Cash.
San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors David Canepa has never wanted to know the answer and he has been fine with now Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lying about it for 14 years.
I think Supervisor President David Canepa should resign from the Board effective today so that he and his TEAM can devote FULL TIME and effort into something he is really passionate about, which is Fund Raising and promoting himself. I wish him the best.
The more choices the Voters of San Mateo County have the better. This time Heintz has plenty of time to get his name on the Ballot if he chooses too. I remember standing next to him in a Church on Woodside Road, Redwwod City at a Candidate Forum.
San Mateo Sheriff Candidate Forum, Wednesday April 25, 2018 at 7:00 pm
United Methodist Church, 2000 Woodside Road Redwood City
Bolanos v. Melville
Heintz Puschendorf blurted out “That does it, I’m in” He was so disturbed with the Softball Questions being asked of then Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos that he made up him mind to Run as a Write In Candidate. Think about that for a moment, a Write in Candidate at the last minute, and the Voters MUST SPELL YOUR NAME CORRECTLY. It’s not like his name was Smith or Jones, it was Heintz Pushendorf, well 100 Voters spelled both names correctly in the 2018 Election.
For those Residents and Voters of San Mateo County let me remind you that Heintz Puschendorf was the President of the (DSA) Deputy Sheriff Association the night of April 21, 2007. He was working in San Mateo County that night. He was not in Las Vegas.
San Mateo County Supervisor Jerry Hill, Sheriff Greg Munks and Under Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, Jeffrey C. Kearnan and Thomas Gallager were in Las Vegas Nevada that night, with about 54 other San Mateo County Employees.
Sheriff Greg Munks and Under Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos were Caught and Detained for being inside the single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada at 9:30 PM, That fact is Indisputable.
The Questions that have Never been asked by any San Mateo County Elected Official especially the Five Supervisors of San Mateo County are 1) What made you go inside that foul smelling residence? 2)What are the names of the other two San Mateo County Sheriff Employees that stood watch while you both were Inside. 3) Were you protecting Sheriff Greg Munks during a Drug Deal of 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets in exchange for $25,000 cash, both of which were found inside the house by the FBI. 4) Or was Sheriff Greg Munks protecting you? 5) Sheriff Munks said neither of you intended to Pay of Sex, What was your intention? 6) Carlos G. Bolanos did you ever order Heintz Puschendorf to never mention Operation Dollhouse or face consequences? 7) Did you order Heintz Puschendorf to pass on that threat to the 400 DSA members?
From the Brave and Proud San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy who contacted me for help in early 2010. Page 3 “Both stated that the Under Sheriff Bolanos never entered the brothel,” We now know that to be false. She is talking about the entire San Mateo County Sheriff Office Knowing.
At this very moment there are only two Candidates for San Mateo County Sheriff in the June 2022 Election. Bolanos and Corpus.
Questions about Mentoring?
Has Sheriff’s Captain Christina Corpus been the beneficiary of mentoring, at the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Department? Might she even be characterized as a product of such a practice? First, as a Correctional Officer, had she been individually mentored by Officer Robert Introcaso, Deputy Maurice Spiller, and Deputy Allen Dorsett, respectfully? If so, did she find such mentoring beneficial and had it not furthered her career, within the organization? Was such mentoring afforded to Christina’s peers? Was it a practice, at the Sheriff’s Department?
To find out, this reporter had filed a request with Bolanos, under the California Public Records Act, to learn about the Sheriff’s Department Mentoring Program, in general, and as it applied to Corpus, in particular. To date, there has been no response.
Later, if such mentoring had occurred, hadn’t then Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos not decided to personally join in it, to mentor Christina -this out of an organization of over six-hundred persons? Hadn’t Christina been the only person given such attention by Bolanos? If true, couldn’t one say, at that point, Christina had been serially mentored?
Certainly, Corpus’ meteoric rise, in both rank and coveted assignments, incident to Carlos’ mentoring sessions, did not go unnoticed by other Sheriff’s Department personnel, with some questioning her performance and lack of experience, within the organization.
An example would be, while assigned to Countywide Security, it had become necessary for sheriff’s detectives, apparently at the direction of Bolanos, to assist her, in handling incidents, in performing, a practice not afforded other persons, under similar circumstances.
While Christina had been assigned as a board member to Sheriff’s Activities League (SAL), significant monies had allegedly been serially embezzled by a sheriff’s employee -SAL Director Barbara Bonilla. Did Corpus exercise adequate oversight, diligence, attention to her duties & responsibilities, as a Board Member, while such outrageous thefts were occurring? Had she taken the job seriously? These are questions which need to be answered, should she be truly considered for Sheriff.
Would Sheriff Bolanos promote and assign Christina Corpus for reasons other than merit? Did he promote and assign her, based upon performance? These are questions which bear asking?
Should Sheriff Bolanos’ past judgement & behavior be considered, in answering these questions? In 2007, he was involved in, what was known as, Operation Dollhouse, an event in which he had been detained by the FBI & Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, at a human trafficking site – a seedy residence, in Clark County, Nevada, where indentured Asian sex slaves, to include one minor, and the illegal drug Ecstasy were being marketed.
Bolanos has been very dismissive of the event, acting as if his presence, INSIDE such an establishment, was no big deal. Even San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe was found to console Bolanos, following the event, describing him, in a county e-mail, as a person that mattered and lamenting press coverage of it would soon be yesterday’s news. This begs the question, are such mentoring practices, in the County, limited to just the Sheriff’s Department? Perhaps, DA Wagstaffe would know, as he is apparently so insightful about such questionable matters?
Corpus, in her quest for Sheriff, has called for more transparency, at the Sheriff’s Department. I agree and would ask that she answer and comment upon the foregoing described questions. I think other sheriff’s employees, ones who have not been afforded or taken advantage of the mentoring opportunities, at the Sheriff’s Department, deserve to know.
Further, an objective measure of experience and performance, to assess Corpus’ qualifications for her current position, much less the Sheriff, would be:
How many arrests has she personally made, while employed at the Sheriff’s Department?
How many crime reports has she personally authored, while employed at the Sheriff’s Department?
How many cases was she personally assigned to investigate, while employed at the Sheriff’s Department?
How many crimes has she personally solved, while employed at the Sheriff’s Department?
This information, the number of cases, case numbers, and dispositions, are readily available from the Sheriff’s Department’s computerized Records Management System. If Captain Corpus wants to be sheriff and Sheriff Bolanos wants to be transparent, in his decisions to promote and assign her, I think it would be in everyone’s interest, to put those numbers out, this so the public can judge her experience and performance for themselves. Wouldn’t it provide insight, as to whether she’s just an empty suit, a person promoted because of mollycoddling & mentoring, or an individual of substance, one who can be expected and counted upon to deliver results.
Is a SMC Judge, Clerk, & Court Reporter committing Perjury Newsworthy?
Where do you get your Information? Who do you trust to provide honest and accurate Information about your government?
Contact your trusted News Sources and ask the Editors why they chose to ignore this information?
Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez is made of the Right Stuff. I have been reporting on his Political Prosecution for the last 7 years. When a person is arrested and Criminally Charged with crimes, ask yourself, How long do you expect the Judicial Process to last before a Conviction or the entire case is Dismissed, like the Zain Jaffer case was in 8 months? Why has this case taken so long? What if the case was brought to teach everybody a lessen, and there was Never any intention to take it to a Jury trial, Simply Destroy a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy who is not a member of the “Those who Matter” Team. Think of the Financial and Emotional costs for the last 7 years.
They made a mistake/miscalculation when they went after San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez. He didn’t FOLD.
Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez, has always wanted a Jury Trial. He has never waivered, the Government has done everything possible to keep their people off of the Witness Stand for the last 7 years. The answer is simple, It’s not Illegal for the Involved parties to lie to reporters, or produce false press releases to their favorite misinformation businesses. However it is Illegal to make false statements under Oath.
Now that only matters if you have a District Attorney who will Prosecute a Judge, Clerk, Reporter, for Perjury.
Now the Question needs to be asked by the 760,000 San Mateo County Residents, Have they been Arrested yet, Have they been Criminally Charged yet? Has anything happened to them yet? If not Why Not?
The answer is simple: They are on the “Those Who Matter” Team.
In case you are not aware of the “Those Who Matter” team, the first time I’m aware of any written evidence of it’s existence was April 25, 2007, in these e-mails I received from a PRA request.
You will notice the top two San Mateo County District Attorneys Never asked Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, Why did you both go INSIDE that single family residence at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada that night?
Mark Melville has folded, he recently contacted San Mateo County News.com, to inform me that he will not be a candidate in the 2022 election. I wish him all the best, I remember when I first met him in Foster City, and I said the same thing I said to Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez, when I first met him and he first announced he was going to run against Sheriff Greg Munks in 2014. I said “You are either very Brave or Very Naive.”
Now that that has been settled it makes room for another candidate and possibly more for the Election 2022. Candidates filing window is February 14, 2022-March 7, 2022.
At this moment there are 2 Candidates for Sheriff, both of them thought it would be great idea to Investigate the Sheriff Activities League (SAL) Embezzlement and Money Laundering Criminal Investigation. For a reasonable thinking person that would be a RED FLAG, non-starter, It would be known as a Conflict of Interest in most circles.
I look forward to see how things shake out. That leaves 7 months for the Residents to ask the questions they have for the Candidates, That is plenty of time.
Belmont’s recently Promoted to Chief, which gets a pay bump then retired within 2 years, Police Chief Anthony Psaila is now employed by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. The only public announcement I could locate was a Facebook page welcoming Deputy Anthony Psaila. That page was not available for the Public to see. I couldn’t find a swearing in announcement or a photo in SMC Sheriff’s Office uniform. Why?
Most residents and all elected officials of San Mateo County know and understand that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is dishonest.
He has been from the day he was sworn in as a Sheriff Office At Will employee, in Janurary 2007. He went on a Misinfornation Campaign starting the evening of April 21, 2007, to cover up a Drug Deal gone wrong or sex with Sex Slaves including a Minor in Operation Dollhouse, Las Vegas Nevada. Either way he should have been fired in April 2007.
Everybody and their mother knows about Carlos G. Bolanos and others covering up the Pornography and Violent Rape Video being shared by 45 top male San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Employees. How many of those photos included Child Porn? What did San Mateo County Government Officials do about this report I provided to them?
