CSUS / inquire about the current employment status of Barbara O’Connor

Dear Madam/Sir:

This will serve to verify and inquire about the current employment status of Barbara O’Connor with respect to California State University, Sacramento.

Specifically, is she presently a professor with the university? My initial research leads me to believe that she is no longer affiliated with CSUS, even though she is listed elsewhere as a current professor (ie, CETF website. See: http://www.cetfund.org/aboutus/board/OConnor-Barbara ).

For that reason, I would like for you to verify this matter by providing me with the exact dates of her employment.

Thank you for your assistance and anticipated prompt response.

Life Perspectives

“I grew up in West Texas, raised by a single mother. I was a first-generation college graduate. So I’ve lived through lots of what our members are living through.

“Communications and politics have really been my longstanding interests, including technology access and equity, disabled rights, communication strategies and social movement building. I have a political background, and I started a public radio station in Sacramento and ran it for a while. We now have six radio stations there, the Capital Public Radio Network.

“I have taught mostly technology policy and technology evolution — the hardware stuff. I also teach political communications and the impact of messaging on social movement formation.

“I was fortunate enough to go to the Annenberg School at the University of Southern California, which is very geeky, so I was able to keep up with technology as it evolved. I chaired the California Public Broadcasting Commission, and I’m now an officer and director of the California Emerging Technology Fund.

“AARP provides me an opportunity to do tele-health, to deal with issues of getting the 50-plus generation online. I get to help people who are unemployed at 50, using the Web. So being part of the AARP board is really a wonderful synergy of my interests and the organization’s interests….”

“It’s getting more and more difficult to find a center in American politics. Part of it is the media’s fault. The news hole, in both broadcast and in print, has really been reduced. The downsizing and the mergers and acquisitions that have gone on in the media world have really done a disservice to public policy discussion. It’s made the media more event- and scandal-chasing — the lowest common denominator.

“In political campaigns, it’s 30-second spots. So it’s no surprise that the public has fatigue about dealing with politicians. Every poll in America shows that they are held in very low esteem.

“We can’t return to retail politics because we have the technology and everyone is used to using it. But longer formats, discussions, call-ins, coherent talk would be welcome. Certainly, AARP’s members would welcome that to address their concerns about big things such as Social Security.

“AARP is nonpartisan, and ours is a trusted voice. We have to provide the voice of reason in these debates, so that it’s not a partisan political discussion, but really a rational, practical discussion.

“People really do care about the issues that we work on. They’re central to their lives. We have to find a coherent solution to intractable problems.

“We need to be very heavily data-driven. I think we do that, by the way. I think staff and our board are the best. And our volunteers are terrific. So I’m optimistic, actually.

“A big part of our job as board members is to listen. You don’t let your own biases govern what you do. I have to listen to what the data says and to what members are telling me.

“So if you’re data-driven and you really do listen to the members tell you what their issues are — and we have very good organs of information that help us with that, by the way, in the organization — then you can find consensus.”

TIMELINE 2007-2008 : SENATE COMMITTEE ON NATURAL RESOURCES AND WATER Senator Darrell Steinberg, Chair [TLR Note:1- Connection In Re Darrell Steinberg – Gay Godfather Dennis Mangers – Kip Lipper – Donna Lucas – Venoco Inc 2. YR, who is examining this matter, avers: a) Kip Lipper — brother of Lucas Public Affairs’s Donna Lucas of oil drilling company Venoco Inc — serves as Chief Policy Advisor, Energy, Natural Resources, and Environment Office of the CA Senate Pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg b) both Darrell Steinberg and Donna Lucas lack credibility on account of CaliforniaALL and AARP/Barbara O’Connor/Jeannine English/Etc, respectively. c) YR further acknowledges he appreciates Sacramento/Lobbying involves back-room deals and that, relatively speaking, Donna Lucas tries to run a clean operation, technically speaking. d) Nevertheless, YR hopes Lucas understands subsequent to his accidental discovery of CaliforniaALL scheme, Dennis Mangers — acting both in bad faith and in his capacity as Cal Bar BOG member — conspired with other to press false criminal charges against him /subsequent home invasion by armed posse from Yolo DA — a game changer which leaves YR no choice but to continue taking whatever actions he is legally entitled to take in order to fight corruption]

|                    2007-2008 Regular Session                    |
|                                                                 |
—————————————————————–

BILL NO:  AB 837                   HEARING DATE:  July 10, 2007
AUTHOR:  Levine                    URGENCY:  No
VERSION:  June 26, 2007            CONSULTANT:  Bill Craven
FISCAL:  Yes
SUBJECT:  Oil and gas leases.

BACKGROUND AND EXISTING LAW
The California Coastal Sanctuary Act of 1994 generally prohibits
new leases for oil and gas development in all state waters that
are designated as a coastal sanctuary. The act defines those
waters as those subject to tidal influence but not including
parts of San Francisco Bay, and it also excludes state waters
subject to an existing oil or gas lease that is in effect on
January 1, 1995, unless that lease is deeded or otherwise
reverts to the state after that date.

Under the terms of the Act, new leases may be approved only upon
a presidential finding that the nation faces a severe energy
supply interruption, that the governor finds the energy
resources in the sanctuary will help alleviate the crisis, and
the Legislature acts to amend the Act.

The Act authorizes the State Lands Commission to enter into a
lease if it determines that oil and gas beneath state-owned
tidal and submerged lands is being drained by wells upon
adjacent federal lands and if it determines that such a lease is
in the best interests of the state. A second provision in the
Public Resources Code, Section 6872.5, authorizes the commission
to adjust the boundaries of existing leases to encompass all of
an oil or gas field that is partially contained within an
existing lease under specified conditions.

Existing law also contains specific provisions for oil and gas
drilling in the Santa Barbara Channel.

PROPOSED LAW

This bill would prohibit the commission from issuing a new lease
or lease extension from coastal tidelands or submerged lands in
state waters within the Santa Barbara Channel if such lease or
lease extension would be developed from an existing or new
offshore oil platform.

ARGUMENTS IN SUPPORT
According to the author, this bill would diminish the risk of
oil spills in coastal waters and forestall other environmental
effects from offshore oil development. The author contends the
bill is consistent with the current position of the state which
is to oppose new leases in federal waters off the California
coast.

The author acknowledges that this bill would affect one current
project. Venoco, Inc. has applied for an extension of lease
boundaries from the State Lands Commission. The author relates
that the project calls for up to 30 new and redrilled wells from
the existing Platform Holly. Venoco received a state lease in
1949. In 1993 it relinquished half the lease in Santa Barbara
County to take a lease in Orange County. According to the
author, the company is now interested in regaining the entirety
of its former Santa Barbara lease. The commission is expected to
release its EIR later this year. In its Notice of Preparation,
it stated that the proposed project has a reasonable possibility
of an oil spill during the lifetime of the project that could
have a significant effect on the environment and that other
aspects of the project also could have a significant effect on
the environment.

No formal positions on the bill were received by the City of
Goleta or the county of Santa Barbara. Background materials
provided by the author indicate that Goleta’s formal policy is
to oppose new leases in the western Santa Barbara Channel. The
county is uncertain if the project will meet its odor abatement
requirements.

ARGUMENTS IN OPPOSITION
None were received. However, the author’s background materials
indicate that Venoco considers its application to be authorized
as a vested right since it has had operations in this lease
since 1968. That issue would likely be resolved by the
commission unless this bill first becomes effective and preempts
the approval of the requested lease boundary extension.

COMMENTS

It should be noted that the Notice of Preparation cited by the
author represents the beginning of the CEQA process.

The Governor and the California Ocean Protection Council have
strongly opposed federal legislation that would have expanded
oil and gas drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf and lift the
25-year ban on off-shore oil drilling in California and other
coastal states, despite any revenue consequences to the state.

SUPPORT
None Received

OPPOSITION
Association of the California Independent Petroleum Association
Plains Exploration and Production Company

California statehouse staffer is a superstar of his own

Kip Lipper, who is as renowned inside the Capitol as he is anonymous outside, is responsible for some of the nation’s most groundbreaking environmental laws over the last 30 years.

November 29, 2009|By Eric Bailey
  • High-powered state Senate staffer Kip Lipper, right, meets with his boss, Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento), in the senator's office.
High-powered state Senate staffer Kip Lipper, right, meets with his boss,… (Robert Durell / For The Times )

Reporting from Sacramento — If he were a basketball star instead of a statehouse staffer, he’d be Kobe Bryant or Magic Johnson — a veteran playmaker, feared by foes, his best moves unleashed just before the buzzer.

But like so many Sacramento insiders, Kip Lipper plays out of the limelight, in the back corridors of the Capitol, unknown to the public whose air and water and ecological ethos he has made his specialty over the last three decades.

As the environmental expert for the state Senate’s ruling Democrats, Lipper has helped craft many of California’s groundbreaking laws in that realm — and become a foil for Republicans irked by what they view as regulatory excess, and by the economic fallout.

His fingerprints are on the California Clean Air Act, the state Safe Drinking Water Act and the landmark 2006 curbs on greenhouse gas emissions. Legislation that boosted recycling, reduced landfill dumping, saved redwoods and cleaned up power plants are also part of his highlight reel.

Shocking New Revelations In Re “KEMPSTER GROUP” — For Profit Entity Headed By Brenda Kempster — CEO of LINK AMERICAS Foundation:KEMPSTER GROUP Coordinated the Inaugural Galas for Clinton and Bush

Mal Pais Beach in Costa Rica  (image:courtesy of http://www.mycostaricalink.com/mal-pais/)

The Leslie Brodie Report has learned that KEMPSTER GROUP —  a for-profit entity headed by Costa Rica devotee — Ms. Brenda Kempster, CEO of controversial non-profit LINK AMERICAS Foundation   “ coordinated the Inaugural Galas at the Folger Shakespeare Library in 1997 for President William J. Clinton and in 2001 and 2005 for President George W. Bush.” (emphasis added)

As was mentioned earlier, LINK AMERICAS and Directors Dave Leveille, Elva Lima Of Verizon Communication, Richard Methia, Cheryl  Meils, David Saedi, AARP’s Barbara O’Connor of Lucas Public Affairs, Dan Throgmorton, and Brenda Kempster represented to the IRS that an expense of  $167,145.00 was utilized for “The 2009 Link Technology Serving Humanity Global Literacy Gala was held in Washington, DC to promote the advancement of Information and communication technology literacy in the areas of Life, Information, Nature, and Knowledge (Link) throughout The Americas.” (emphasis added)

In actuality, however, the sole reason behind the aforementioned “gala” was “celebrating the Inauguration of The Honorable Barack Obama Forty-fourth President of the United States of America and  The Honorable Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Vice President of the United States of America and the 111th Congress of the United States.”


CALIFORNIA EMERGING TECHNOLOGY FUND (“CETF”) DIRECTORS: Sunne McPeak, AARP’s Barbara O’Connor, CETF’s Adviser and Costa Rica devotee — Kempster Group’s Brenda Kempster of Link Americas Foundation / ICT Literacy Portal sponsored by CETF.  Link Americas Foundation’s Kempster and O’Connor are under scrutiny in connection with 2009 expense totaling  $167,145.00 celebrating the inauguration of Barack Obama.

Additionally, and as was also previously mentioned, LINK AMERICAS Foundation — caused the removal of all data and information relating to LINK AMERICAS’s $167,145.00 peculiar sponsorship of Barack Obama Inaugural Gala from LINK AMERICA’s website.

He founded Lucasfilm Limited and led the company as chairman and chief executive before selling it to The Walt Disney Company on October 30, 2012.[9] He is best known as the creator of the space opera franchise Star Wars and the archaeologist-adventurer character Indiana Jones. Lucas is one of the American film industry’s most financially successful directors/producers. When Disney’s acquisition closes, Lucas will be Disney’s largest shareholder after the estate of Steve Jobs.[8]

Contents

Early life and education

George Lucas was born in Modesto, California, the son of Dorothy Ellinore (née Bomberger) and George Walton Lucas, Sr. (1913–1991), who owned a stationery store.[10][11]

Lucas grew up in the Central Valley town of Modesto, and his early passion for cars and motor racing would eventually serve as inspiration for his USC student film 1:42.08, as well as his Oscar-nominated low-budget phenomenon, American Graffiti. Long before Lucas became obsessed with film making, he wanted to be a race-car driver, and he spent most of his high school years racing on the underground circuit at fairgrounds and hanging out at garages. On June 12, 1962, while driving his souped-up Autobianchi Bianchina, another driver broadsided him, flipping over his car, nearly killing him, causing him to lose interest in racing as a career.[5][12] He attended Modesto Junior College, where he studied, amongst other subjects, anthropology, sociology and literature.[5] He also began filming with an 8 mm camera, including filming car races.[5]

At this time, Lucas and his friend John Plummer became interested in Canyon Cinema: screenings of underground, avant-garde 16 mm filmmakers like Jordan Belson, Stan Brakhage and Bruce Conner.[3] Lucas and Plummer also saw classic European films of the time, including Jean-Luc Godard‘s Breathless, Francois Truffaut‘s Jules et Jim, and Federico Fellini‘s 8½.[3] “That’s when George really started exploring,” Plummer said.[3] Through his interest in autocross racing, Lucas met renowned cinematographer Haskell Wexler, another race enthusiast.[3][5] Wexler, later to work with Lucas on several occasions, was impressed by Lucas’ talent.[5] “George had a very good eye, and he thought visually,” he recalled.[3]

Lucas then transferred to the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts. USC was one of the earliest universities to have a school devoted to motion picture film. During the years at USC, George Lucas shared a dorm room with Randal Kleiser. Along with classmates such as Walter Murch, Hal Barwood and John Milius, they became a clique of film students known as The Dirty Dozen. He also became good friends with fellow acclaimed student filmmaker and future Indiana Jones collaborator, Steven Spielberg. Lucas was deeply influenced by the Filmic Expression course taught at the school by filmmaker Lester Novros which concentrated on the non-narrative elements of Film Form like color, light, movement, space, and time. Another inspiration was the Serbian montagist (and dean of the USC Film Department) Slavko Vorkapich, a film theoretician comparable in historical importance to Sergei Eisenstein, who moved to Hollywood to make stunning montage sequences for studio features at MGM, RKO, and Paramount. Vorkapich taught the autonomous nature of the cinematic art form, emphasizing the unique dynamic quality of movement and kinetic energy inherent in motion pictures.

Lucas saw many inspiring films in class, particularly the visual films coming out of the National Film Board of Canada like Arthur Lipsett‘s 21-87, the French-Canadian cameraman Jean-Claude Labrecque‘s cinéma vérité 60 Cycles, the work of Norman McLaren, and the documentaries of Claude Jutra. Lucas fell madly in love with pure cinema and quickly became prolific at making 16 mm nonstory noncharacter visual tone poems and cinéma vérité with such titles as Look at Life, Herbie, 1:42.08, The Emperor, Anyone Lived in a Pretty (how) Town, Filmmaker, and 6-18-67. He was passionate and interested in camerawork and editing, defining himself as a filmmaker as opposed to being a director, and he loved making abstract visual films that create emotions purely through cinema.[3]

After graduating with a bachelor of fine arts in film in 1967, he tried joining the United States Air Force as an officer, but he was immediately turned down because of his numerous speeding tickets. He was later drafted by the Army for military service in Vietnam, but he was exempted from service after medical tests showed he had diabetes, the disease that killed his paternal grandfather.

In 1967, Lucas re-enrolled as a USC graduate student in film production. Working as a teaching instructor for a class of U.S. Navy students who were being taught documentary cinematography, Lucas directed the short film Electronic Labyrinth: THX 1138 4EB, which won first prize at the 1967–68 National Student Film Festival, and was later adapted into his first full-length feature film, THX 1138. Lucas was awarded a student scholarship by Warner Brothers to observe and work on the making of a film of his choosing. The film he chose was Finian’s Rainbow (1968) which was being directed by Francis Ford Coppola, who was revered among film school students of the time as a cinema graduate who had “made it” in Hollywood. In 1969, George Lucas was one of the camera operators on the classic Rolling Stones concert film Gimme Shelter.

Philanthropy

In 1991, The George Lucas Educational Foundation was founded as a nonprofit operating foundation to celebrate and encourage innovation in schools. The Foundation’s content is available under the brand Edutopia, in an award-winning web site, social media and via documentary films. Lucas, through his foundation, was one of the leading proponents of the E-rate program in the universal service fund,[24] which was enacted as part of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. On June 24, 2008, Lucas testified before the United States House of Representatives subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet as the head of his Foundation to advocate for a free wireless broadband educational network.[25]

In 2005, Lucas gave US$1 million to help build the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial on the National Mall in Washington D.C. to commemorate American civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.[26]

On September 19, 2006, USC announced that George Lucas had donated $175–180 million to his alma mater to expand the film school. It is the largest single donation to USC and the largest gift to a film school anywhere.[27] Previous donations led to the already existing George Lucas Instructional Building and Marcia Lucas Post-Production building.[28][29]

Lucas has pledged to give half of his fortune to charity as part of an effort called The Giving Pledge led by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett to persuade America’s richest individuals to donate their financial wealth to charities.[30][31]

TIMELINE May 2012:Feds Sign $20M PR Contract to Promote Obamacare(TLR Note:Highly relevant to events exposed on TLR in re AARP,Bill Novelli,operative Donna Lucas, fraudster CETF’s Barbara O’Connor of AARP/Lucas)

The federal government has signed a contract with a public relations firm to spend $20 million to promote Obamacare, a law that made be defunct in a month.
The advertising campaign will educate the public on staying healthy and preventing illness, a Health and Human Services official told The Hill.
The controversial Affordable Care Act includes provisions for the advertising blitz in the law. The contract was won by the public relations firm Porter Novelli in a competitive bidding process, according to the Hill.
The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the constitutionality of the law before its recess in June.

“Let me suggest that the president spend a little more time trying to do something about the spending, debt, and gas prices, and a little less time trying to spin the unpopular things he’s already done. It might require a little more work, but it’s what we need. It’s time to lead,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. Source: http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/obamcare-pr-contract/2012/05/22/id/439885

——

The Department of Health and Human Services has inked a $20 million contract with a top public-relations firm to sell aspects of the Obamacare law to the American public.

According to a report in PR Week, HHS’s Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services has awarded the contract to PR firm Porter Novelli. The firm has offices worldwide, and boasts PepsiCo, Hewlett Packard, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as existing clients.

According to The Hill, the Porter Novelli campaign is “designed to educate the public about how to stay healthy and prevent illnesses.” It will do so by highlighting provisions of Obamacare.

The PR push is part of a sustained effort to try to sell the unpopular Obamacare law to the American public. Last year, HHS asked Congress to quadruple the budget for its public affairs office – to nearly $20 million – and nearly double the size of the office’s staff. The department insisted the changes were necessary to “help Americans understand and access their benefits and information under the law.”

A Freedom of Information Act request filed by the group Judicial Watch last year revealed the lengths to which HHS has gone to attempt to sell Obamacare to a skeptical public:

  • The Obama HHS launched a campaign to track Internet searches and to use online search engines such as Google and Yahoo to drive traffic to a government website promoting Obama’s health care overhaul. Using “pay-per-click” advertising tools, such as Google Adwords, HHS purposely targeted people searching the term “Obamacare,” a word that has been described as “disparaging” by political agents of the president.
  • According to a budget summary prepared by Ogilvy, from October 2010 through February 2011, the Obama administration spent $1,435,009 on these online advertisements alone, including advertising campaigns with Google and Yahoo, almost $300,000 per month.
  • A number of documents address the need to target the Obamacare propaganda campaign to Hispanics, blacks, and women. For example, according to an email from Chris Beakey, vice president of Ogilvy PR Worldwide, to HHS officials on Dec. 16, 2010, summarizing a conference call, “You want to utilize the bulk of their paid media efforts (which would include expenditures for Radio One and Univision) on media that reaches African Americans and Hispanics. The money will go farther and these audiences continue to be a top priority.”

Sunne McPeak’s CETF Awards Funds to Little Tokyo Service Center(Note: $ from sham outfits to LTSC-sufficient to build mission control;disquieting ties to Fujie,Wattai,CCPF’s Johnson-all injured Dydzak;$Verizon/MTO$)

The Leslie Brodie Report has learned San Francisco-based controversial entity California Emerging Technology Fund (“CETF”) has recently awarded tens of thousands of dollars to Los Angeles-based controversial entity Little Tokyo Service Center (“LTSC”).

CETF has been established as a non-profit corporation pursuant to orders from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in approving the mergers of SBC-AT&T and Verizon-MCI in 2005.  As a condition of approval of the mergers, AT&T and Verizon are required to contribute to CETF a total of $60 million over 5 years for the purpose of achieving ubiquitous access to broadband and advanced services in California, particularly in underserved communities, through the use of emerging technologies by 2010. AT&T will contribute $9 million per year and Verizon will contribute $3 million per year. The CPUC also directed that at least $5 million should be used for telemedicine projects, according to its website www.cetfund.org

Recently, CETF, headed by embattled Sunne McPeak (who gained fame for intentionally withholding vital Bay Bridge documents from State Auditor Elaine Howle), sparked an outcry as well as accusations of cronyism and mismanagement.

“At a time when folks across California are struggling to make ends meet, I think CEO Sunne Wright McPeak annual salary of $350,000.00 sends a terrible message,” a source seeking anonymity stated.

Forbes: How the AARP Made $2.8 Billion By Supporting Obamacare’s Cuts to Medicare (TLR Note: Is AARP’s A. James Forbes Jr. — who is part of unlawful plot to defraud public in re Porter Novelli/ Lucas Public Affairs’ Barbara O’connor part of Forbes ?)

Obamacare cuts $716 billion from Medicare in order to pay for its $1.9 trillion expansion of coverage to low-income Americans. It’s one of the reasons why seniors are more opposed to the new health law than any other age group. So why is it that the group that purports to speak for seniors, the American Association of Retired Persons, so strongly supports a law that most seniors oppose? According to an explosive new report from Sen. Jim DeMint (R., S.C.), it’s because those very same Medicare cuts will give the AARP a windfall of $1 billion in insurance profits, and preserve another $1.8 billion that AARP already generates from its business interests.

(DISCLOSURE: I am an outside adviser to the Romney campaign on health-care issues. The opinions contained herein are mine alone, and do not necessarily correspond to those of the campaign.)

 

Here’s how it works. AARP isn’t your every-day citizens’ advocacy group. The AARP is also one of the largest private health insurers in America. In 2011, the AARP generated $458 million in royalty fees from so-called “Medigap” plans, nearly twice the $266 million the lobby receives in membership dues.

Fact-Checking the Obama Campaign’s Defense of its $716 Billion Cut to Medicare
Why the American Medical Association Had 72 Million Reasons to Shrink Doctors’ Pay
Burr-Coburn: The Best Medicare Reform Proposal Yet

Medigap plans are private insurance plans that seniors buy to cover the things that traditional, government-run Medicare doesn’t, like catastrophic coverage. Medigap plans also help seniors eliminate the co-pays and deductibles that are designed to restrain wasteful Medicare spending.

AARP blocked Medigap reforms, saving the group $1.8 billion

Adding catastrophic coverage to Medicare, while restraining the ability of Medigap plans to waste money, is a key to Medicare reform, one that has been a big part of bipartisan plans in the past. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, the Medigap reforms that AARP blocked would have saved the average senior as much as $415 in premiums per year.

But the AARP aggressively, and successfully, lobbied to keep Medigap reforms out of Obamacare, because AARP receives a 4.95 percent royalty on every dollar that seniors spend on its Medigap plans. Reform, DeMint estimates, would have cost AARP $1.8 billion over ten years.

Cuts to Medicare Advantage could earn AARP over $1 billion

Not only did AARP succeed in getting Democrats to balk at Medigap reform. Obamacare’s cuts to Medicare Advantage will drive many seniors out of that program, and into traditional government-run Medicare, which will increase the number of people who need Medigap insurance.

That means more royalty profits for the AARP. Reps. Wally Herger (R., Calif.) and Dave Reichert (R., Wash.) estimated that the change “could result in a windfall for AARP that exceeds over $1 billion during the next ten years.”

AARP Medigap plans exempted from Obamacare’s insurance mandates

It gets worse. AARP Medigap plans are exempted from most of Obamacare’s best-known insurance mandates. AARP Medigap plans are exempted from the ban that requires insurers to take all comers, regardless of pre-existing conditions. The plans are exempted from the $500,000 cap on insurance industry executive compensation; top AARP executives currently make more than $1 million. AARP plans are exempt from the premium tax levied on other private insurers. IPAB, Medicare’s rationing board, is explicitly barred from altering Medicare’s cost-sharing provisions, provisions that govern the existence of Medigap plans.

BREAKING NEWS… DEVELOPING … Inquiry Into Barbara O’Connor Widens … LINK AMERICAS Foundation….Brenda Kempster…. 2009 Inauguration of Barack Obama ?

*The Leslie Brodie Report urges the readers to exercise caution and not jump to conclusions regarding misconduct by anyone.

According to sources seeking anonymity, the multi-prong inquiry into AARP, Porter Novelli, Barbara O’Connor, Donna Lucas, and Lucas Public Affairs is rapidly expanding and encompasses broader inquiries than had been acknowledged up to now on The Leslie Brodie Report.

One aspect of the inquiry involves 3 subparts:

1) Circumstances surrounding myriad fraudulent activities by the AARP, AARP Foundation, Barbara O’Connor, Donna Lucas, and Lucas Public Affairs.

Specifically, the lack of disclosures on AARP’s website that AARP Director Barbara O’Connor is part and parcel of Lucas Public Affairs — an ipso facto extension of Porter Novelli and Bill Novelli; as well as other false and misleading information.

2) Circumstances surrounding Barbara O’Connor and Sunne McPeak in connection with non-profit entity known as California Emerging Technology Fund (“CETF”)

3) Circumstances surrounding Barbara O’Connor and Brenda Kempster in connection with non-profit entity known as LINK AMERICAS Foundation.

In connection with Sub-Part #3, special attention is being paid to the examination of an expense totaling  $167,145.00 in year 2009.

Specifically, LINK AMERICAS and Directors Dave Leveille, Elva Lima Of Verizon Communication, Richard Methia, Cheryl  Meils, David Saedi, Barbara O’Connor, Dan Throgmorton, and Brenda Kempster represented to the IRS that an expense of  $167,145.00 was utilized for “Venue Fee and Gala Expense” and that  “The 2009 Link Technology Serving Humanity Global Literacy Gala was held in Washington, DC to promote the advancement of Information and communication technology literacy in the areas of Life, Information, Nature, and Knowledge (Link) throughout The Americas.”

LINK AMERICAS and Directors Dave Leveille, Elva Lima Of Verizon Communication, Richard Methia, Cheryl  Meils, David Saedi, Barbara O’Connor, Dan Throgmorton, and Brenda Kempster also represented to the IRS that an expense of  $2350 was utilized “in conjunction with groups of volunteers from Costa Rica, Europe, and the US- to help build schools, develop literacy programs, and provide reading glasses to children and adults in communities in Central America.”

AARP Leadership Profile:

Life Perspectives

“I grew up in West Texas, raised by a single mother. I was a first-generation college graduate. So I’ve lived through lots of what our members are living through.

“Communications and politics have really been my longstanding interests, including technology access and equity, disabled rights, communication strategies and social movement building. I have a political background, and I started a public radio station in Sacramento and ran it for a while. We now have six radio stations there, the Capital Public Radio Network.

“I have taught mostly technology policy and technology evolution — the hardware stuff. I also teach political communications and the impact of messaging on social movement formation.

“I was fortunate enough to go to the Annenberg School at the University of Southern California, which is very geeky, so I was able to keep up with technology as it evolved. I chaired the California Public Broadcasting Commission, and I’m now an officer and director of the California Emerging Technology Fund.

“AARP provides me an opportunity to do tele-health, to deal with issues of getting the 50-plus generation online. I get to help people who are unemployed at 50, using the Web. So being part of the AARP board is really a wonderful synergy of my interests and the organization’s interests….”

“It’s getting more and more difficult to find a center in American politics. Part of it is the media’s fault. The news hole, in both broadcast and in print, has really been reduced. The downsizing and the mergers and acquisitions that have gone on in the media world have really done a disservice to public policy discussion. It’s made the media more event- and scandal-chasing — the lowest common denominator.

“In political campaigns, it’s 30-second spots. So it’s no surprise that the public has fatigue about dealing with politicians. Every poll in America shows that they are held in very low esteem.

“We can’t return to retail politics because we have the technology and everyone is used to using it. But longer formats, discussions, call-ins, coherent talk would be welcome. Certainly, AARP’s members would welcome that to address their concerns about big things such as Social Security.

“AARP is nonpartisan, and ours is a trusted voice. We have to provide the voice of reason in these debates, so that it’s not a partisan political discussion, but really a rational, practical discussion.

“People really do care about the issues that we work on. They’re central to their lives. We have to find a coherent solution to intractable problems.

“We need to be very heavily data-driven. I think we do that, by the way. I think staff and our board are the best. And our volunteers are terrific. So I’m optimistic, actually.

“A big part of our job as board members is to listen. You don’t let your own biases govern what you do. I have to listen to what the data says and to what members are telling me.

“So if you’re data-driven and you really do listen to the members tell you what their issues are — and we have very good organs of information that help us with that, by the way, in the organization — then you can find consensus.”

Expertise

Politics, communications, debate, telecommunications policy, digital divide, senior health, tele-health, digital literacy, education technology.

Education

Ph.D., communications, University of Southern California, Annenberg School of Communications; M.A., communications, California State University, Northridge; B.A., communications, California State University, Northridge; A.A., history, Los Angeles Valley College.

Previously, assistant director of debate, University of Southern California; summer debate instructor, Georgetown University; design consultant, Cablevision Systems, New Jersey.

Volunteer experience

Other: Formerly, presidential debate judge, Washington Bureau, Associated Press; chair and commission member, California Public Broadcasting Commission (governor’s appointee); commission member, Federal Communication Commission, Network Reliability Council; chair, California Educational technology commission; chair, CEO Task Force on Digital Literacy; chair, International Council on Information Communication Technology; among many others.
