Founder and funder Mitch Kapor, shown here with his wife Freada Kapor Klein, has written to the SEC warning that its proposed fundraising rules could be a disaster for small business and startups. Spencer Brown/San Francisco Business Times

Longtime tech founder and funder Mitch Kapor on Wednesday joined the chorus of startup experts who oppose fundraising rule changes proposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

“Practices that have worked well without incident for decades could suddenly become unintentional minefields for honest startups and sophisticated investors alike,” said the man who founded Lotus and co-founded the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Mozilla Foundation.

Kapor has made more than 200 seed and early stage investments over a 28-year career and is now managing partner of Kapor Capital, which makes 20 to 25 new investments each year.

“All in the Mishpocha” — Copy of Dan Dydzak Motion for Expedited Hearing Before United States Supreme Court [ TLR Note: Notice allegations Re: Epstein and son. To date, high number of Jewish operatives (and family members) under scrutiny for alleged gross acts of misconduct — extremely troubling. For example, Lea and David Rosenberg, Jeannine English-Dickstein and Howard Dickstein,Freada Kapor-Klein and Mitchell Kapor,Laura and Robert Chick, Kay, Matt and David Werdegar, Barbara and Starr Babcock,Ronald and Eric George,David and Cynthia Pasternak,Dianne Feisnstein and Richard Blum, Donna Lucas and Kip Lipper, Bill Hebert and Lori Shechter

UPDATE #1 to “Something is Rotten in Yolo County – Part 2: Deconstructing Shyster or Saint Dave Rosenberg ” : JERRY BROWN [ TLR Notes: 1. Update re connection between Rosenberg and Brown during Brown first/first term as California Governor. At that time, Rosenberg part of Brown’s staff ( as was Justice J. Anthony Kline aka Tony Kline – an otherwise straight shooter) 2. Post relevant due to disquieting ties between Rosenberg and a) Judicial Council’s Mark Robinson of CalALL financial scheme b) Judicial Council’s Angela Davis of US Attorney who probably sicced FBI agent Bell against YR because he managed to unearth CalALL , CCPF, and other scandals c) Howard Dickstein and/or Cache Creek Casino / Chief Marshall Mc Cay c) Jerry Brown – cousin of CPUC’s Geoffrey Brown in re Cal ALL, CCPF, myriad suspected acts of bribery re Cal Energy Crisis, money laundering of utility money to California Democratic Party d) Attorney General Jerry Brown — potential involvement in prima facie appearance of bribery , also exposed by YR, whereas PG&E / Howard Rice/ Jerry Falk / Amy Margolin bribed Joseph Grodin vis-a-vis UC System e) Jerry Brown disqueting ties to Mitch and Freada Kapor

PG&E / Joseph Grodin:

A former member of the now-defunct, San Francisco-based law firm of Howard Rice Nemerovski Canady Falk & Rabkin has been identified as a potential wrongdoer in a civil inquiry into the peculiar circumstances surrounding familiar faces and a familiar utility company, in the context of two relatively unknown non-profit entities — IGS and CSCHS

Amy Margolin
Ms. Amy Margolin (image: courtesy photo)

Prominent LGBTQ activist and appellate law specialist Amy E. Margolin (who currently practices out of the Novato-based appellate boutique Bien & Summers) is being looked upon for indications she may have acted as a middleman and conduit for alleged financial improprieties in various legal proceedings involving Pacific Gas Electric & Company (“PG & E “), the California Public Utilities Commission (“CPUC”), former CPUC Commissioner Geoffrey Brown, private judge Joseph Grodin, and Howard Rice, the firm that represented PG&E.

Those various state, federal, and CPUC proceedings involving PG&E primarily relate to proceedings stemming from California’s energy crisis, as well as the 2001 bankruptcy proceedings and subsequent 2007 litigation in which the State of California accused PG&E and its parent company of usurping and hiding assets.

The civil inquiry, conducted by Yolo County’s YR, views Margolin — who was part of the legal team which represented PG&E — as someone who may potentially have a played a role in this misconduct, although this investigation is continuing.

Unfortunately, Margolin’s association with Howard Rice alone creates concern. As readers may recall, Howard Rice is a firm which YR has previously managed to discredit on two occasions in matters involving a) In Re Girardi / Howard Rice’s special prosecutor Jerry Falk and b) Geoffrey Brown / Douglas Winthrop (managing director of Howard Rice), who both served as directors of the California Bar Foundation in connection with PG&E’s Ophelia Basgal of CaliforniaALL, in the context of allegations of financial improprieties.

Hence, when examining the circumstances surrounding the California Supreme Court Historical Society (“CSCHS”) and discovering the presence of PG&E; PG&E’s Ophelia Basgal of CaliforniaALL, who served as the “Treasurer” of CSCHS; Amy Margolin, and private judge Joseph Grodin, whose legal opinion Bill Lockyer and Jerry Brown relied upon in deciding to dismiss the case against PG&E, it is difficult not to question whether any misconduct has taken place in this setting given the prior history between Howard Rice and PG&E.

Adding fuel to the fire is the recent discovery that CSCHS — while headed by the embattled Ronald George — seeks financial donations, some of which it later forwarded to an entity known as the Institute of Governmental Studies (“IGS”), where Eric George (son of Ronald George) serves as a director.

FBI phone interview of YR:

1. Redacted FBI report shown below.

2. The report unfairly creates the impression that YR’s demand letter to Jeannine English was sent in connection with CaliforniaALL financial scheme.

3. Per Yr, the reason CaliforniaALL came-up during the conversation with FBI Special Agent Bell was because of an initial impression FBI Special Agent Bell had called to discuss CaliforniaALL financial scheme.

4. Obviously, demand letter was only in connection with the State Bar of California intentional mishandling of the Ninth Circuit matter of In Re Girardi, potential business relationship between Howard Dickstein (husband of Jeannine English) and Thomas Girardi, conflicts of interest, lack of disclosures, etc. See YR’s involvement in matter of In Re Girardi HERE

5. Per Yr, had he wanted to unfairly impose on Jeannine English and Howard Dickstein, he would have confront them with allegations that Thomas Girardi and Bill Lockeyer “secretly own” shares in Indian Casinos that are represented by Howard Dickstein. Hear explosive audio HERE

6. Per YR, “I explained to the FBI agent that in my mind the email to Ms. English constituted a demand letter. However, the agent stated that this was incorrect because, according to his understanding, a suit has to be filed first and only later can settlement negotiations begin. As such, I immediately and spontaneously informed the agent that I would withdraw the communication. He stated that this will be very much appreciated, and that he was certain the attorney who asked him to call me would also be appreciative , and that it will “go a long way” to resolving the matter. ”

7. YR believes the “Demand Letter” did not rise to level of extortion/attempted extortion because there was never a wrongful use of force or fear or threat to: A- use force or threats of using force to injure a person or property, B- accuse anyone of a crime C-threat to reveal a secret. Nevertheless, YR plans to fully comply with the promise he had given FBI Special Agent Bell.

 Redacted Copy of FBI Report In Re Jeannine English -- Spouse of Howard Dickstein

BREAKING NEWS: YR amends title of prospective suit ; adds to list of defendants Peter Arth , Timothy Simon, Geoffrey Brown, Dian Grueneich [ TLR Notes: Per YR, suit to be filed probably by Monday or Tuesday of next week. During weekend apprehensive YR to further contemplate how to best achieve objectives, venue, causes of actions, additional defendants (especially all 2007-2008 Cal Bar Foundation Directors i,e, Holly Fujie, Douglas Winthrop, Jeff Bleich ; all 2007-2008 UC Irvine Foundation ; Stephen Leo “Steve” Poizner of DOI), cross the t’s and dot the i’s 2. Rational behind amending style of suit from “John Doe v. Allen Matkins” to “John Doe v. Michael Peevey” to better achieve objectives of legal action by obtaining support of law makers/consumer groups/general public who are much more interested in “CPUC/Utilities Corruption” (rather than “California Bar Corruption.”) 3. Causes of action against Peter Arth (aka “Mayor Juana”), Timothy Simon, Dian Grueneich, Geoffrey Brown in individual capacity re conspiracy to create sham non-profit (“CaliforniaALL”) which will serve as vehicle to embezzle/launder money, and for voting (saved Brown) to appoint Freada Kapor Klein as “consensus director,” etc.]

The Leslie Brodie Report Mulls Liaising with Champion of Justice Dr Joe Zernik for Purpose of Understating Reason Large Number of Jews Stand Accused of Greed, Financial Shenanigans and Myriad Schemes [ TLR Note: To date, TLR managed to document close to 80 California Jews (mostly member of JNC Cabal) who are either presently under scrutiny or those previously accused of misconduct 2. Conventional wisdom provides the following reasons a) Bay Area based-Orthodox Rabbi (not YR) avers lack of anti-Semitism in California, unaware population/ population shift/ disappearances of White middle-class/ support of large corporation, and relative anonymity of modern society allow some Jews to operate with impunity. Shockingly, said Rabbi believes “little” anti-Semitism is a “good thing” to keep Jews on their toes. b) source of problem — because of anti-Semitism/ Pogroms/ Holocaust/ Oppression, some Jews — mostly Eastern-European — developed various mechanism (greed, trickery, sense of humor, political ideas, shyster personality, penchant for “air professions” ) in order to survive — theory of Benjamin Disraeli]

Previously, in response to a request by The Leslie Brodie Report (“TLR”), Dr. Joseph Zernik provided a short review of the history of the corruption in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, highlighting the Iran-Contra Scandal, the Rampart Scandal, and corruption within U.S. District Court in Los Angeles as key causes of the corruption.

See interview @:

http://lesliebrodie.blog.co.uk/2011/08/29/fascinating-historical-overview-of-widespread-fraud-in-the-los-angeles-court-system-by-dr-joseph-zernik-11746814/

Now, TLR mulls asking Dr. Zernik to opine on the reason many of the key players in said corruption happened to be members of the Jewish faith. For example:

Sandor Samuels of Bet Tzedek
Sandor “Sandy” Samuels —  President & CEO of Bet Tzedek of Los Angeles.  Former senior executive and chief legal officer at Countrywide Financial Corporation.  A RICO suit alleges that Samuels was appointed President and CEO of Bet Tzedek largely due to his working knowledge of how to operate an enterprise which engages in myriad financial crimes.

Alex Kozinski
Judge Alex Kozinski — trail of grave misconduct include a) supporter of “The Malek Manual” – whereas concerned citizens who follow the plight of American whistleblowers in exposing fraud, corruption, incompetence, waste and abuse usually find themselves on the receiving end of wanton investigations, malicious prosecutions and warrantless surveillance. b) appointment of Rory Little as special prosecutor in matter of In Re Girardi despite clear conflict of interest. c) obstruction of justice in refusing to process complaint against Judge Morrison England  d) “judge shopping” in matters relating to whistleblower Dan Dydzak.

John Goldman
John Goldman —  lives in Atherton with his wife, Marcia . All Former — Chairman of Willis Insurance Services of California, Inc. ; Chief Executive Officer of Richard N. Goldman & Co., an insurance brokerage firm; president of Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco ). Penchant for supporting African-American political candidates. Handler of Democratic Party’s legal gladiator John Keker; disquieting ties to a) degenerate Chris Young of Keker & Van Nest/ Three-Card-Monte/ CaliforniaALL financial scheme b) alleged bribee Justice Kay Werdegar who was allegedly bribed vis-a-vis large donations to David Werdegar’s Institute of Aging aka “Goldman Institute of Aging” – originally named after John’s late father, Richard.  c) Cary Zellerbach of CaliforniaALL  scheme d)  UC Berkeley / SF Jewish Federation — Goldman Family practically controls both institutions. e) Freada Kapor Klein / Gibor Basri of CaliforniaALL scheme / UC Berkeley Foundation. f) Dianne Feinstein and husband – UC Regent Richard Blum.   Some members of San Francisco’s Russian- Jewish community aver the Goldmans indirectly responsible for events surrounding Pogrom @ SF Synagogue and related “60 Days Suspension Scandal” — The Leslie Brodie Report’s Raison d’être.


Jack Citrin of UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS) where Eric George serves as director.  Citrin under intense scrutiny for alleged money laundering from California Supreme Court Historical Society (where CaliforniaALL’s Ophelia Basgal of PG&E served as Treasurer) to UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS) for the purpose of bribing Ex-Justice Joseph Grodin in re litigation involving PG&E. Alleged accomplices: Ronald George, Eric George, Joseph Grodin, Richard Blum, Jerry Falk, Douglas Winthrop, Amy Margolin, Kay Werdegar. For complete story, please see  HERE

Steven Hirsch and Jeffrey Chanin  of Keker & Van Nest
Steven Hirsch and Jeffrey Chanin of Keker & Van Nest.  Co-Conspirators Hirsch and Chanin part of Three-Card-Monte fraudulent scheme (which included among others: Jon Streeter, Chris Young, Jeannine English, Howard Dickstein)  to delete profile of associate CaliforniaALL’s Chris Young from website of Keker & Van Nest prior to agreeing to press false criminal charges against YR in re CaliforniaALL/ Sara Granda ethics complaint. Disquieting ties to John Goldman, JNC Cabal, Cary Zellerbach, and client Howard Dickstein.

Henry Weinstein  of UC Irvine/ Voice of OC
Henry Weinstein of UC Irvine School of Law / Voice of OC.  Mr. Weisntein is the former legal affairs reporter for the L.A. Times.  Part of “Phase 1” of CaliforniaALL financial scheme alongside UC Irvine Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky of Voice of OC, Cal Bar executive director Joe Dunn of Voice of OC, and former Voice of OC directors Thomas Girardi and James Brosnahan (operator of Tony West and Chris Young,; attorney and brain behind CaliforniaALL scheme, mastermind behind California Democratic Party.) Additionally, Weisntein part of conspiracy between Voice of OC, UC Irvine Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky of Voice of OC, Joe Dunn of Voice of OC, former Voice of OC directors James Brosnahan and Thomas Girardi and others to press false criminal charges against Yolo County-based Rabbi who exposed CaliforniaALL financial scheme for purposes of intimidation and the execution of search warrant whereas all CaliforniaALL materials were confiscated by eight armed Yolo DA investigators. For more about Henry Weinstein , please see HERE

Ron Burkle of Yucaipa Companies
Ron Burkle of Yucaipa Companies. Disquieting ties to his attorneys Thomas Girardi and Ron Olson.  Allegedly hosted Ronald George on “Air Fuck One.” Controller of  Antonio Villaraigosa — alleged father of Lucy Armendariz’s daughter J.  Burkle, allegedly,  behind disbarment of late Phil Kay.

Cynthia Pasternak of Pasternak Pasternak & Patton
David and Cynthia Pasternak of Pasternak Pasternak & Patton. Despite the fact that David Pasternak has been sued countless times (including twice for being an alleged “Racketeer”), The Leslie Brodie Report (“TLR”) urges the readers to exercise extreme caution and not jump to conclusions regarding misconduct by Cynthia and David Pasternak. In addition, to date, TLR hasn’t been made privy to any real evidence whatsoever which would tend to show Pasternaks engaged in any acts of misconduct. Nevertheless, Mr. Pasternak’s association with Bet Tzedek, as well as the appearance that he is part of the Girardi/George Syndicate is a source of concern.  In connection with some of Bet Tzedek’s alleged racketeering activities,  a suit maintained that Sandor Samuels — CEO and President of Bet Tzedek and former Chief Trial Counsel at embattled Countywide Financial Services — was appointed President and CEO of Bet Tzedek largely due to his working knowledge of how to operate an enterprise which engages in myriad financial crimes.  The suit also asserted that other individuals engaged in racketeering activities, including David Pasternak — a Los-Angeles based “receiver,” as well as an officer of both Bet Tzedek and the Chancery Club — who allegedly used Bet Tzedek as forum to meet, collude, and otherwise bribe various judges and lawyers for the purpose of further appointing Pasternak as “receiver.”

Robert Chick of Lawyers' Mutual Insurance Company
Laura and Robert Chick of Lawyers’ Mutual Insurance Company. Confirmed shyster Laura Chick has a “Jeannine English” problem, to wit, 1. Part of CaliforniaALL financial scheme (Chick only part of Obama for America while member of California Bar Board of Governors (“BOG”)) 2. Member of BOG to primarily serve financial interest of herself, her husband, and that of Lawyers’ Mutual Insurance Company – NOT to “protect the public” — i.e. ensure clients of California Lawyers’ Mutual Insurance Company NOT disciplined by the State Bar of California 3. Jeannine English disquieting ties to Gwen Moore similar to Chick’s disquieting ties to Karen Bass. | Ongoing civil inquiry seeks to implicate Chick in matters relating to misuse of $85 billion of Federal Recovery Act funding.


Ronald and Eric George. Disquieting ties to Tom Girardi, Girardi Syndicate, Howard Rice, Bet Tzedek, Alen Rothenberg, 1st. Century Bank. Eric George part of Mel Gibson extortion scheme.Charachteristics of MO: rely heavily on misuse of Asians, misuse of Tom Layton, vindictive, radioactive, my way or the highway. High on Ronald Goerge’s “Hit List” are: Judge David Lampe, Judge Maryanne Gillard, Yolo County-based Rabbi, Michael Paul, Leslie Brodie, Judicial Council Watcher, Peter Dion-Kindem and Dan Dydzak. Separately, when examining the circumstances surrounding the California Supreme Court Historical Society (“CSCHS”) and discovering the presence of PG&E; PG&E’s Ophelia Basgal of CaliforniaALL, who served as the “Treasurer” of CSCHS; Amy Margolin, and private judge Joseph Grodin, whose legal opinion Bill Lockyer and Jerry Brown relied upon in deciding to dismiss the case against PG&E, it is difficult not to question whether any misconduct has taken place in this setting given the prior history between Howard Rice and PG&E. Adding fuel to the fire is the recent discovery that CSCHS — while headed by the embattled Ronald George — seeks financial donations, some of which it later forwarded to an entity known as the Institute of Governmental Studies (“IGS”), where Eric George (son of Ronald George) serves as a director.  Previously, a RICO suit alleged that Ronald George unlawfully transferred funds from entities that were under his control (such as the California Administrative Office of the Courts (“AOC”) intended for the CCMS computer system) into various accounts that were specifically maintained in Alan Rothenberg’s bank — 1st Century,  a bank which Eric George owns in part. Said funds, as the suit alleged, were later embezzled.  As part of maintaining the scheme, the suit alleges, AOC employees Ronald Overholt and William Vickery were bestowed with various gifts, trips, kickbacks, bribes, excessive salaries, and the like. Similarly, and also as part of guarding the scheme, the suit alleges that defendants, at times, resorted to utilizing the services of Tom Layton — a former Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff/Senior State Bar of California investigator — to “illegally gather detrimental dirt” on various individuals who would oppose and/or object to the existence of said arrangements.  According to sources, Tom Layton is part of an ongoing “ambulance chasing” scheme that the Girardi Syndicate operates in San Bernardino County vis-a-vis a satellite office located in San Bernardino and managed by Thomas Girardi’s son-in-law, David Lira.


Munger Tolles & Olson’s Jeffrey Bleich, Henry Weissmann, Brad Phillips: All three are part of California Bar/CPUC/Utility money connection, to wit, CaliforniaALL, CCPF.  Similar to Ronald George/Bet Tzedek, favorite MO (including that of Ron Olson) is to hide behind/misuse racial minorities (i.e. Blacks, Asians)

John Roos of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati Mark Parnes
John Roos and Mark Parnes of Wilson Sonsini.  Both Roos and Parnes part of CaliforniaALL financial scheme and with close ties to OBAMA FOR AMERICA.  Relatively speaking, both are typical of Sonsini Syndicate’s MO, to wit, non-radioactive, attitude of live and let live, resourceful, and highly effective operatives. Similar to Ron Olson (and unlike Dave Rosenberg) favorite MO – stealth, stay out of limelight.


David, Justice Kay and Matt Werdegar. RICO defendant David Werdegar is the former Chief Executive Officer of the Institute on Aging and husband of California Supreme Court Associate Justice Kathryn Mickle Werdegar (aka Kay Mickle). Prior to the commencement of the RICO action, David Werdegar abruptly quit his position following reports on TLR of alleged improprieties involving himself, his wife, and his son Matt Werdegar – a partner at the litigation boutique Keker & Van Nest, headed by controversial litigator John Keker. Matt also part of Three-Card-Monte conspiracy by Keker & Van Nest to remove profile of degenerate associate Chris Young (of CaliforniaALL, to wit, Obama for America, Mark Friedman-Alison Turner-Kevin Johnson’s Mayoral Campaign, USDOJ’s Tony West, White-House Special Counsel Jeff Bleich) from firm’s web site. (images and narrative: courtesy)

Mark Friedman of Fulcrum Property
Mark Friedman of Fulcrum Property. In the context of CaliforniaALL fraudulent financial scheme, extremely disquieting ties to Chris Young of Keker & Van Nest, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, CPA Alison Turner, UC Davis, Gilles Attia, Howard Dickstein and spouse Jeannine English. Separately, Friedman a named defendant (in suit against Howard Dickstein, Arlen Opper) in connection with alleged scheme to defraud Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation / Cache Creek Casino. Similar to Opper and Dickstein, Friedman’s public relation MO — projects image of one who “admires” the Arts. Subsequent to events surrounding Chris Young – Three-Card-Monte, interest in Friedman has grown exponentially.


Yolo County Superior Court Judge David and Lea Rosenberg.  Rosenbergs remain under intense scrutiny in connection with: a) circumstances surrounding familiar faces and a familiar casino in the context of a relatively unknown Davis-based non-profit entity, Progress Ranch headed by Barbara Sommer b)  four or five non-profits commandeered by Lea and David Rosenberg (Soroptimist International of Davis , Davis Rebekah Lodge, Davis Odd Fellows, Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc., and possibly Davis Sunrise Rotary Club) devoted unusual and, indeed, at times exclusive attention to financially benefit “foster youth” and/or “emancipated foster youth” in Yolo County. c) alleged “fixing” of case of Ryan Clifford v. UC Davis Jewish Fraternity  d) matter of Clint Parish ; threat against Clint Parish ; use of Robo-Call e) disquieting ties to Vic Bucher, Judge Dan Maguire, Judge Dave Reed, Judicial Council’s Tani Cantil and Mark Robinson of UCI Foundation/ CaliforniaALL fraudulent financial scheme.

Loren Kieve of Kieve Law Offices
Loren Kieve of Kieve Law Offices. Kieve, 65, with extremely disquieting ties to James Brosnahan of MoFo and shady “Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights of the Bay Area.” A co-conspirator (alongside Gwen Moore, Raj Chatterjee, and others) in unlawful agreement to press false criminal charges  and otherwise retaliate against  Yolo County-based YR in re State Bar of California ethics complaint.

BREAKING NEWS ALERT: The Leslie Brodie Report to Re-Publish Previously De-Published Developing Story In Re CaliforniaALL’s Ophelia Basqal of PG & E, Amy Margolin of Howard Rice, Jerry Brown’s Nancy McFadden (Formerly of PG & E), Joseph Grodin [ TLR Note: 1) Reason for republication — YR’s alleged “newly discovered evidence” dealing with CaliforniaALL’s Freada and Mitchell Kapor, The Kapor Center, California 2010 election campaigns of Jerry Brown, Gavin Newson, Kamala Harris. Long story short, YR believes ample evidence now exists to further inquire (and primarily in order to eliminate suspicion) possibility mastermind behind Democratic party James Brosnahan, CPUC’s Michael Peevey and CPUC’s Geoffrey Brown may have also laundered “utility money” (i.e. PG&E) to campaigns of Jerry Brown, Gavin Newsom, Kamala Harris vis-a-vis The Kapor Center, or misused Tech-Guru Mitch Kapor, Kapor Center 2) It is expected that by end of next week, all parties involved in CaliforniaALL financial scheme (utility companies, CPUC, Cal Bar, Cal Bar Foundation, CalALL directors and executives, Mark Friedman, Alison Turner, McGeorge School of Law, UC Irvine Foundation, Voice of OC, MoFo, Munger Tolles, Allen Matkins, Keker & Van Nest’s Chris Young/Three-Card-Monte, etc service of STD (subpoena duces tecum) would be completed.]

Barack Obama Calls Californian Kamala Harris ‘Best Looking’ Attorney General [ TLR Note: 1. The Leslie Brodie Report decries inappropriate sexist comment and recommends President Obama attends gender-sensitivity training. 2. Comment designed to create controversy as “hint” to Justice Ruthe Bader Ginsburg – go ahead and retire — after such controversy Harris will not be nominated as your replacement. 3. Notice name of John Goldman – member of JNC Cabal – a secondary nemesis of TLR/YR (whereas sordid John Burton – chief nemesis) 4. Presently, JNC seeks to position daughter of Dianne Feinstein ( Katherine Feinstein) as next California attorney general or justice of US Supreme Court. 5. Harris – former lover of Willie Brown / John Keker’s fan / U.S. DOJ’s Tony West’s sister-in-law/part of CaliforniaALL financial scheme, including separate disquieting ties to Mitchell Kapor and Freada Kapor-Klein, as well as other alleged shady dealings at “The Kapor Center.” Hence, JNC-Indian Casinos-PG&E-California Democratic Party’s legal gladiator John Keker (and proxies Jon Streeter, Chris Young) part of bigger conspiracy to press false criminal charges against YR (including failed Three-Card-Monte) for purpose of seizing CaliforniaALL documents/intimidating YR. ]

Speaking at a fundraiser in a wealthy San Francisco suburb, President Obama praised the looks of California Attorney General Kamala Harris.

“You have to be careful to, first of all, say she is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough, and she is exactly what you’d want in anybody who is administering the law, and making sure that everybody is getting a fair shake,” Obama said. “She also happens to be, by far, the best looking attorney general in the country.”

“It’s true! C’mon,” he added, to laughter from the crowd.

Obama is in California raising money for the 2014 election cycle. This event raising funds for the Democratic National Committee was a garden party at the home of Levi Strauss-heir John Goldman.

Barbara Sommer — Fascinated by Fungi [ TLR Notes: 1. Barbara Sommer presently under intense scrutiny in re machinations involving Lea and David Rosenberg, Progress Ranch, Cache Creek Casino, Yolo County Grand Jury, etc. 2. Part of studying/ profiling Sommer — hard to miss countless articles re fascination of mushrooms. Also, hard to miss similarities to a couple previously scrutinized by TLR – Mitchell Kapor and Freada Kapor-Klein (whereas TLR/YR established beyond doubt Freada’s involvement with CaliforniaALL financial scheme, and related acts of fraud) i.e. both Sommers Psychology profs at UC Davis, similar hobbies, etc. 3. Like Freada, Barbara Sommer comes across as outwardly independent, defiant, controlling, different, “knows best”, willing to take risks under shield of PhD. 4. Fascination with mushroom indicative of a) enjoys danger/risks b) Identification with mushroom — a product/fruit of decay which does not rely on photosynthesis indicative Sommer perceives herself as different. Hence, while serving as Foreman of Yolo County Grand Jury she may have felt entitled, different, perhaps even superior to average resident of Yolo County]

Mushroom Foraging Class

Ever wonder what wild mushrooms would be tasty sautéed with garlic? Join veteran mushroom hunters Bob and Barbara Sommer of the Sacramento Mushroomers for some spring mushroom hunting on the American River Parkway.  Learn how to identify edible mushrooms growing right here in Sacramento.

Barbara Sommer is a retired Lecturer in Psychology from UC Davis. Her love of mushrooms goes back to a first sighting in the mid-1970s. She had spent the first thirty years of her life never seeing a mushroom in the wild, and now, suddenly, they were everywhere!

Brief of Amici Curiae CSBA, UC Regents, CSU In Support of Freada and Mitchell Kapor [ TLR Note: 1. In essence, UC Regents, CSU, and CSBA ask court to side with Mitchell and Freada Kapor Klein of CaliforniaALL financial scheme 2. YR avers UC, CSU, and CSBA probably hired Harold Freiman and Kelly Rem of Lozano Smith in Walnut Creek to prepare brief at cost of around $75,000 — primarily as “political favor” to UC Berkeley Foundation Trustee, Freada Klein Kapor 3. Arguably, Amici within their right to petition courts i.e. persuade court in New York recent ban on large soda unconstitutional since UC wishes to continue selling large soda to students. TLR’s readers, however, need ask themselves (or Regent Richard Blum or, in the alternative, Pat Fong-Kushida and Jeff Bleich’s confederate — Bill Hauck of CSU Board of Trustees / Goddard Claussen / Golden Pacific Bank / California Forward / Blue Shield of California Foundation ) why no private university took similar action? ]

Berkeley Hillside Preservation Wins CEQA Appeal Berkeley

From Susan Brandt-Hawley, attorney for appellants
Thursday February 16, 2012 – 03:26:00 PM

On February 15th, the First District Court of Appeal reversed the Alameda County Superior Court and ruled that the City of Berkeley’s approval of the 10,000 square foot Kapor residence and 10-car garage proposed for a steep lot in the Berkeley Hills was unlawful. The Court agreed with Berkeley Hillside Preservation that the project is not exempt from environmental review under the California Environmental Quality Act.

Wide community opposition arose when the City failed to require any environmental study. The precedent-setting published appellate opinion clarifies the standard of review and holds that CEQA exemptions cannot be used when there is expert opinion or other substantial evidence that a project may have significant environmental impacts. Here, renowned geotechnical expert Dr. Lawrence Karp provided expert evidence of unstudied “massive grading” and potential for seismic lurching of hillside fills.

The appellate court ruled that the Kapor house, which one appellate Justice characterized as “humongous” at the appellate argument, is not a typical single-family residence that merits exemption from CEQA. The Court ordered that a peremptory writ issue to order the City of Berkeley “to set aside the approval of use permits and its finding of a categorical exemption, and to order the preparation of an EIR” before further consideration of the project’s four required use permits.

City of Berkeley sued over Mitch Kapor home

May 28, 2010 6:00 am by Tracey Taylor

The proposed home, by Marcy Wong Donn Logan Architects.

A group of Berkeley residents has filed suit against the City of Berkeley for failing to act with due process when it approved the application, by Lotus founder and philanthropist Mitch Kapor, to build a new home at 2707 Rose Street.

The newly formed Berkeley Hillside Preservation group filed a petition in the Alameda Superior Court yesterday stating that the city had exempted the Kapor application from an environmental review that is mandated under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

“This application was approved without following environmental laws,” says Susan Brandt-Hawley, the attorney representing the Hillside Preservation Group which, she says, is made up of Berkeley residents, some of whom live close to the Kapor site. Brandt-Hawley says the group is asking that the court issue a peremptory writ ordering the city to set aside its approval of the project pending compliance with CEQA.

At the heart of the petition is the issue of grading. The group cites expert evidence from geotechnical engineer Dr Lawrence B. Karp which states that a grading study is necessary to ascertain whether massive grading and foundations would be required to prevent seismic lurching of the hillside lot. An environmental review would also consider impacts relating to demolition, traffic and aesthetics.

The plan by Mitch Kapor, who is also an adjunct professor at UC Berkeley, to build a home for himself and his wife, Freada Klein, in north Berkeley has been dogged by controversy from the outset. This, despite the fact that many of the immediate neighbors of the proposed Rose Street site support Kapor’s proposal for a home there.

On April 27, Berkeley’s councilmembers voted to green-light construction of the home after rejecting an appeal against the January approval for the project by the city’s zoning board. The consensus was that the application was exempt from environmental review because it was for a single family home. The lawsuit points out that exemptions cannot be used when there is expert opinion that a proposal may have environmental impacts, and that the size of the proposed home — 10,000 sq ft when including a 10-car garage — means the project is not a typical low‐impact single‐family project.

Dr. Freada Kapor Klein and Dr. Orly Taitz hereby asked to opine if appropriate for President Barack Obama to meet and dine with Yityish Aynaw — first Black Miss Israel [TLR Note: please discuss 1. Do you believe Obama chose Yityish Aynaw solely because she is African-Israeli ? In other words, had she been an immigrant from Moldova, would Obama express the same level of enthusiasm? 2. Do you think it is politically incorrect for the president of the United States to encourage beauty pageants where women are judged and get rewarded for their look ? ]

Barack Obama and Yityish Aynaw

An advance party of White House officials insisted on inviting Yityish Aynaw, 22, to next Thursday’s gala dinner hosted by Shimon Peres, Israel’s president, after hearing how she became the first Israeli of Ethiopian origin to win the country’s premier beauty queen contest last month.

Her presence among 120 guests who will also include Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, Lt General Benny Gantz, the army chief of staff, and Rueven Rivlin, the Knesset speaker puts her ahead of many more august figures who have failed amid a desperate clamour to secure invites.

The mass circulation Yedioth Ahronot newspaper reported that Ms Aynaw – who emigrated to Israel from Ethiopia with her Jewish grandparents after the death of her mother when she was 12 – would have the chance to exchange pleasantries with the president.

Timeline 2010 – Stand Up for California: Cache Creek Casino: Traffic, crime, but oh the money [ TLR Note: 1- Practically speaking, Cache Creek Casino – controlled by Howard Dickstein and UC Davis Foundation’s Tribal Chairman Marshall McKay of Beverly Hills — pays salaries of Bruce Naliboff, Michael Cabral and RICO Defendant Jeff Reisig 2- If tribe a sovereign entity — what, if any, constitutional provision gives Yolo County power to seek payments in mitigation? 3- Are payments reason Bruce Naliboff / Jeff Reisig did not criminally charge fraternity members for hate crimes / attempted extortion of Ryan Clifford — attempted extortion in re subsequent alleged threat of violence against Ryan Clifford if will not remain quiet]

Cache Creek Casino: Traffic, crime, but oh the money

Cache Creek Casino has brought some prosperity to the region, but the grand jury noted the negatives in its report. By ERIN TRACY / Daily Democrat 07/09/2010

The Cache Creek Casino Resort attracted patrons who fueled the economy, which led to improved emergency services, but ultimately traffic congestion, noise, and crime beyond remediation, according to a 2009-10 Yolo County grand jury report.

The grand jury, which released its report last week, found better communication between Yolo County and the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, as well as stronger oversight of tribal mitigation dollars, would likely improve the situation.
It’s hard to deny the economic impact of the 414,110 square-foot facility, which is the county’s largest employer. The tribe annually awards $200 million in vendor contracts, $40 million in payments to the county and state, and $3 million in donations to local civic organizations, the report stated.
The casino’s annual earnings, which go to YDWN members, are kept confidential by the sovereign nation but the grand jury estimated the reservation is home to fewer than 25 members and their children.
“These individuals are the direct and highly-compensated beneficiaries of the profits from the casino,” the report states.
Representatives of the Tribe declined to be interviewed or answer written questions submitted by the grand jury, citing sovereignty rights. Representatives also did not respond to inquires about the report before deadline.

Increased road use

Perhaps the biggest complaint among residents in the Capay Valley is the increase in traffic along Highway 16. Saturdays are the busiest day for travel, with more than 13,000 travelers heading to the casino, the report stated, which is a 69 percent increase between 2002 and 2006.
All casino feeder roads meet capacity limits established by the state and county and studies conducted for the 2030 General Plan and by the citizens group, Capay Valley Vision, expect traffic on the roads will exceed capacity by 2013.
In a 2002 Memorandum of Understanding between the tribe and county, YDWN promised to implement a shuttle service to mitigate traffic issues. The tribe agreed to pay the county to construct a park and rides facility for patrons and employees, and make the use of its service mandatory for workers. Neither the service nor the policy has been implemented and only 18 percent of employees currently use public transportation, according to the report.
The influx of casino visitors yielded a doubling of Sheriff’s deputies in the area, but the majority of casino related crimes continue to increase. According to the report, between 2002 and 2006 DUI arrests increased 1,050 percent, assaults and weapons arrests increased 2,900 percent and Felony Burglary increased 900 percent.
How the cash is divided

The sheriff’s department has received the lion’s share of mitigation funding to county department, with $3.46 million since 2002. Despite this majority funding, the county estimates its law enforcement related workload — comprised of efforts from the Sheriff’s Department, District Attorney and Public Defender’s office — is under-funded by about $600,000.
In total, the tribe has paid $32.9 million to the county: $10.6 million has gone to specific departments, $15.5 million to the general fund, $6.4 million to community residents and specified projects along the Highway 16 corridor, and $.4 million to reserves. The department allocations also include $1.2 million for negotiations and arbitration over the tribes proposed 2008 expansion, which was abandoned in October 2009.

The distribution and oversight of those funds for community projects were called into question by the Yolo County grand jury.
The Advisory Committee on Tribal Matters was established by the Board of Supervisors to recommend applications for tribal mitigation. The grand jury found questionable spending and conflicts of interest among its nine members.
At least two of the board members voted on proposals either because they, or their spouse, “held a leadership role in a recipient organization.”
The Board of Supervisors also took recommendations that limited funding to residents between Interstate 505 and the casino, precluding mitigation for many other towns along the Highway 16 corridor, including Woodland. The majority, 38 percent, of the funds went to Esparto and the were increasingly used for economic and community development rather than mitigation like road repair.
According to the report, the committee’s board minutes reflect that its members, “inaccurately believe ACTM funds are theirs to control … ignoring other county priorities or other casino-related mitigation needs outside the valley.”
County Tribe Coordinator Christopher Lee said, “The county is taking the findings of the grand jury seriously and will respond the them in full and we will have more information at that time.”

Jeff Reisig:

In an almost unprecedented turn of events and somewhat ironically, a local official in the State of California who represents the government in the prosecution of criminal offenses is now accused of criminal conduct.

Jeff Reisig
Shown above is Mr. Jeff Reisig — an alleged “accomplice” to both a criminal and civil conspiracy who cooperated, jointly and severally, in the commission of two or more RICO activities (image: courtesy photo)

Court documents filed with the United States District Court for the District of Columbia reveal that the highly controversial District Attorney of Yolo County Jeff Reisig is accused of violating the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

RICO is a federal law that authorizes a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. RICO focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows for the leaders of a syndicate to be held civilly liable for the crimes that they ordered others to commit or which they assisted in committing.

The lawsuit, filed as a civil-racketeering action by Marina Del Rey-based legal scholar Daniel Dydzak, alleges that Jeff Reisig and his deputies/investigators engaged in an “unlawful search and seizure” and that Mr. Reisig and State Bar of California employee Tom Layton (who according to sources is part of an ongoing “ambulance chasing” scheme the Girardi Syndicate operates in San Bernardino County vis-a-vis a satellite office located in San Bernardino and managed by Thomas Girardi’s son-in-law, David Lira) shared with third parties materials obtained during the search.

The suit further alleges that Reisig conspired to participate in a RICO enterprise, as well as participated in the commission of two or more racketeering activities acting as “accomplice.”

Bruce Naliboff:

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

A big red flag has been reluctantly raised over Yolo County District Attorney Chief Investigator, Bruce David Naliboff.

The rapidly expanding multi-prong civil inquiry, conducted by Yolo County’s YR, views Naliboff  —  an Ex-Lieutenant  of  UC Davis Police Department — as someone who may potentially have a played a greater role than had been perceived up to now.

YR maintains that one aspect of the inquiry into CaliforniaALL /  University of California  involves 4 subparts:

1) Circumstances surrounding events relating to UC Davis / UC Davis Foundation operatives Cruz Reynoso, Mark Friedman , Gilles Attia.

2) Circumstances surrounding events relating to UC Irvine / UC Irvine Foundation operatives Joe Dunn of Cal Bar/ Voice of OC, Judicial Council’s Mark Robinson, Erwin Chemerinsky of Voice of OC, Michael Drake, and Karina Hamilton.

3) Circumstances surrounding events relating UC Berkeley / UC Berkeley Foundation operatives Freada Kapor Klein and Gibor Basri.

4) Circumstances surrounding prima-facie evidence of criminal conduct by Bruce Naliboff, Michael Cabral, and Jeff Reisig.

In connection with Sub-Part  #4, special attention is being paid to the examination of fraud on the court, obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting in the obstruction of justice, and related irregularities.

Per YR, Sub-Part #4 is being carefully reviewed because it involves “Public Corruption,” which poses a fundamental threat to our way of life. Such wrongdoing impacts everything from how well our community is protected to verdicts handed down in courts, as well as the quality of governmental services. This, YR maintains, can take a significant toll on the American way of life.

November 1, 2000 :

Thirty-three police officers patrolled the parking lot at Hughes Stadium at Sacramento City College during the Causeway Classic Saturday, making sure that tailgaters did not have alcohol or start barbecue fires.

Lt. Bruce Naliboff, of UC Davis Police, said that the rules were in place in an attempt to control alcohol-related fights and to uphold the ban on drinking in public in the city of Sacramento. He also said that this year?s Classic was being treated as a UC Davis home game where alcohol is prohibited.

The decision to not allow barbecuing was made to prevent charcoal from being left in the parking lot, said Captain Mike Corkery of the UC Davis police.

UC Scandal Causes Push for Fiscal Controls

February 8, 1996

The latest University of California accounting scandal — this one involving the radiology department at UC Davis Medical Center — has intensified calls for tighter fiscal controls throughout the system.

An array of top UC officials said yesterday that current measures designed to prevent financial mismanagement do not seem to be working.

“The good news is that university investigators uncovered the misappropriation of funds,” said Lieutenant Governor Gray Davis, a member of the UC board of regents. “The bad news is that once again, a university which is academically without peer comes across as a financial basket case.”

In a statement yesterday, UC Davis officials acknowledged that internal auditors, UC Davis police and the Sacramento County district attorney’s office have been looking into allegations that $330,000 was mishandled by radiology department employees.

The Chronicle, which disclosed the investigation in yesterday’s editions, has learned that the amount in question may approach $500,000. Sources have told the newspaper that three employees have been placed on paid administrative leave as a result of the investigation — though the university would not officially confirm that yesterday, citing state privacy laws.

University officials said $250,000 appears to have been inappropriately diverted to radiology accounts for department-related expenses, and another $80,000 was placed in “unauthorized accounts for social activities,” such as an annual Christmas party.

A UC Davis administrator said yesterday that authorities since July have conducted an exhaustive review of bank accounts and ledgers held by department employees.

“We’ve looked at all financial transactions and documents in the department over the last five years,” Janet Hamilton, vice chancellor for administration, said in an interview. “We’re still very actively engaged in all of the final interviews with all the department staff.”

The radiology department dipped into one of the accounts in question to pay honoraria ranging from $300 to $500 to visiting professors from UC San Francisco, but no policies were apparently violated, Hamilton said. The honoraria are illegal only if they are more than $1,000 or if they are paid with state money.

Hamilton said the university asked campus police officials to join the investigation because of allegations of criminal wrongdoing, but “from our standpoint, we don’t see that any criminal activity has occurred.”

UC Davis police Sergeant Bruce Naliboff said his department began looking into the case last August, a month after auditors began their investigation.

“We were initially investigating charges of embezzlement, but whether or not the facts end up showing that or not, only time will tell,” Naliboff said. He would not elaborate.

UC Regent Ronald Stovitz in Addendum to Richard Blum — Regent of the University of California and husband of United States Senator from California Dianne Feinstein [TLR Note: 1) Stovitz — former judge with Cal Bar’s State Bar Court. Previously, TLR exposed Stovitz for acting without a mandate and for “helping” Lucy Armendariz and JoAnn Remke in role of “volunteer.” Upon exposure, Stovitz changed status from Judge to attorney. In short, an arrangement similar to how Ronald George, even to this date, meets Tani Chantil-Sakauye on a daily basis for instructions on which cases to take and how to rule — per sources. Both Stovitz and Judith Epstein remain under scrutiny in connection with suspicious activities involving a tall man with red hair — identity unknown — who may be acting as conduit. 2) It is now very clear that in addition to UC Irvine Foundation — which provided the “subterfuge” for CaliforniaALL i.e. false launching of SALUCI, UC Berkeley Foundation which provided actors i.e. Freada Kapor, Gibor Basri, also involved is UC Davis i.e. Mark Friedman, Gilles Attia, Cruz Reynoso, etc. Conclusion: in various machinations strong presence of Goldman / Feinstein / Blum / Zellerbach / Werdegars / Georges / Friedmans / Dickstein Syndicates — henceforth referred to for purposes of simplicity as JNC Cabal. 3) Psyche of JNC Cabal remains, perhaps justifiably, “under the influence of the Holocaust” – Hence – at least outwardly – Very Liberal .

Google’s GoogleBot and The Leslie Brodie Report Are BROGEZ, Again

Googlebot — Google’s web crawling bot (sometimes also called a “spider”) and The Leslie Brodie Report are at it, again.  As was stated recently, under normal circumstances, an article published on The Leslie Brodie Network (i.e. The Leslie Brodie Report, or a supporting platform) will encounter the Googlebot within minutes;  which in turn,  will add the article to the Google index.

However, much to the collective chagrin of staff-members of The Leslie Brodie Report, Google, once again, stop indexing stories appearing on TLR.  Specifically, a developing story dealing with an upcoming lawsuit to be filed in Sacramento Superior Court,  hasn’t been indexed.  This developing story may be viewed below, or by visiting @:  http://lesliebrodie.blog.co.uk/2013/01/29/john-doe-v-allen-matkins-robert-hamilton-karina-hamilton-morrison-foerster-sarah-redfield-unh-school-of-law-ruthe-catolico-ashley-et-al-tlr-cover-15479901/

TIMELINE 2010: Freada and Mitch Kapor’ LPFI Announces Robert Schwartz as New Executive Director (TLR Note: Schwartz abruptly departed, replaced by Jarvis Sulcer who apparently does not merit a similar announcement)

Level Playing Field Institute (LPFI) announces the selection of Robert Schwartz as Executive Director of their Bay Area-based education and workplace fairness organization.  Robert is a seasoned educator and leader who brings with him dedication and experience creating solutions to mitigate education inequity.  He will lead LPFI to increase the breadth and depth of its impact. Read the release.

In announcing the selection, LPFI Founder and Board Member, Freada Kapor Klein stated: 
“Robert is exactly what LPFI needs at this moment in time.  He is a passionate, experienced leader who can help execute LPFI’s goal of dramatically increasing the number of underrepresented students of color pursuing STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) studies.  We chose Robert – after a national search that yielded nearly 100 stellar candidates – because of his unwavering commitment to helping students achieve academic success and develop their enormous potential.”

BREAKING NEWS: Freada and Mitchell Kapor’ Level Playing Field Institute Robert Schwartz Abruptly Exits — Replaced by African-American Jarvis Sulcer (TLR Note: Schwartz and Ross Fubini — Both Caucasians who Lately Departed Black Dominated Kapor Network

Robert Schwartz, who was appointed Executive Director of the Level Playing Field Institute (“LPFI”) in March of 2010, is no longer part of LPFI. He was quietly replaced by Jarvis Sulcer.

https://i1.wp.com/a0.twimg.com/profile_images/2226823823/f31de2ef-ab57-4d3d-b130-afb3f00cb68b.png

Robert Schwartz (image: courtesy of Twitter)

According to THP, prior to joining LPFI, Schwartz “spent three years as Chief Academic Officer for Inner City Education Foundation (ICEF) Public Schools in South Los Angeles, leading the strategic expansion of the academic program from 3 schools with 500 students to 15 schools with almost 4,000 students. As instructional leader, Robert facilitated the curricular design of the charter organization’s rigorous academic program with the goal to prepare students to attend and compete academically at top colleges and universities. Prior to serving as ICEF’s CAO, Robert was the founding principal at ICEF’s flagship high school, where he led its growth from 93 to 375 students. Under Robert’s direction, the first three classes achieved a 100% graduation rate with 97 percent accepted to four-year universities. Three years later, 73 percent of the students are still enrolled in college. As a 1994 Teach for America corps member, Robert spent seven years at his placement site in East Los Angeles. He was twice named teacher of the year and was made lead teacher and science department chairperson in his second year. Robert graduated cum laude from Binghamton University with a double major in Biology and Classical Languages, and earned his MA in Urban Education Policy Planning.”

Jarvis Sulcer, an African-American, “joined LPFI in 2007, first as Academic Director and most recently serving as the Director of Education overseeing the SMASH and IDEAL programs. He brings with him a deep passion for our mission and experience in making an impact through education. He will lead LPFI in expanding the impact of its education programs and institutional research.

He received his Ph.D. in Nuclear Science and Engineering at Cornell University in 1998. He was the only African-American male in the United States to receive a Ph.D. in his field of study that year. He graduated from Southern University in 1991 with a B.S. in Physics and a minor in Mathematics. In 2000, Jarvis received the Most Distinguished Dissertation Award from the National Society of Black Physicists at Stanford University.

Previously, Jarvis worked part-time as an Assistant Professor of Engineering at Foothill Community College in addition to his full-time job as an engineer.  He also worked in Silicon Valley in the semiconductor industry as a Quality & Reliability Engineer at Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Agilent Technologies in wireless communications. He left corporate America in 2003 to dedicate his time and talent to XCEL Educational Services, a tutorial company he co-founded in 2000.

Jarvis is originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and is a strong advocate for education and has served as a motivational and keynote speaker for several organizations in California, Louisiana and New York,” according to LPFI

Sources familiar with the situation, speaking on condition of annonimity, expressed grave concern over this latest development, which came on the heels of an abrupt departure by another Caucasian employee of Kapors — Ross Fubini.

Meet “The Carbon War Room” (TLR Note: Allegedly based in Washington, DC — But is it really, Mitch and Freada Kapor ?)

Address
1150 Connecticut Avenue #620
Washington, DC 20036

Telephone

The Carbon War Room is a global, independent non-profit. Our mission is to harness the power of entrepreneurs to unlock market-driven solutions to climate change. The Carbon War Room is a US registered 501(c)3 organization.

Climate change is too important and too complex for governments to solve alone – business must lead and attract private capital towards solutions. We need a level playing field: there are $550b annual subsidies to fossil fuels. There is coincidentally $550b extra needed in green investment. A $550b shift is not a lot for private capital – it’s a shift of less than 1 percent. That’s why we started the Carbon War Room – to unlock the greatest wealth creation opportunity of our generation.

50% of all emissions can be profitably offset with today’s technology. Policy is necessary but not sufficient. A complementary and different skill-set to traditional efforts is needed – focused on making markets work better and unleashing capital. We need to invest in the tools to move capital. We need to focus on each sector, not a one size fits all.

Carbon War Room is ultimately working towards the removal of 17 gigatons of anthropogenic carbon.

The Carbon War Room acts on a simple truth: that real progress is rarely driven by policy makers, but is instead led by visionaries who find opportunities that others have missed. Our work brings together entrepreneurs, technology experts, financiers, and action-oriented government leaders to find ways to make an immediate difference at sufficient scale to avert catastrophe.

The Carbon War Room seeks funding from three main sources: individuals, corporations and foundations. These funding sources provide the capital for organizational overhead, new potential operations and active operations. The founders of the Carbon War Room fund all core operational overhead. 100 percent of every dollar from other funding sources goes towards the bottom line our Operations, Network Engagement and Research programs.

Established in 2009, Carbon War Room was founded by Sir Richard Branson and incubated within his charity, Virgin Unite. Richard was joined by a select group of like-minded entrepreneurs. They are an amazing group of individuals. We encourage you to learn more about them: who-we-are/founders.

In less than two years, the Carbon War Room has established itself as a unique player in the global effort to fight climate change, offering a space where entrepreneurs, government and business leaders, and other key stakeholders can come together to find immediate solutions to the challenge of bringing carbon-cutting strategies to unprecedented scale.

BREAKING NEWS: Ross Fubini Exists Kapor Capital, Joins Canaan Partners

ross fubini

Ross Fubini, formerly of Kapor Capital, has joined Canaan Partners as a venture partner.

At Kapor, Fubini led investments in Piazza, CitrusLane, GingerIO, KarmaLoop, and others. His resume also includes positions at a number of startups that went on to do big things, including Netscape, Tellme, and Plumtree. He co-founded social software startup CubeTree, which was acquired by SuccessFactors in 2010 — after the acquisition, Fubini served as vice president. And he’s an advisor to Palantir Technologies and Causes. (In the press release, Palantir’s Shyam Sankar says Fubini helped Palantir “scale to what it is today.”)

By moving to Canaan, Fubini is shifting his focus from seed investing to Series A and later. At the same time, he told me via email that his seed experience should help him in his new role, as should his experience as a technologist. He added that he plans to invest in companies that tap into the consumerization of enterprise trend, where enterprise products start to look more and more like consumer apps. He added:

As an aside, the consumerization of IT isn’t really the right story. The right story is how consumers are now able to act like and get the resources previously only available to companies. You can acquire leads (UrbanSitter, Odesk, Uber); you can diverse your assets (WealthFront, LendingClub, FinancialEngines); you can choose the tools to do your jobs instead of a distant IT head (Optimizely, MailChip, Clearslide).

A source seeking annonimtynow maintain an examination has been lauched to determine whether the name “ZELLERBACK” was used as part of a scheme to mislead the public.  Or, whether the name was misspelled as a result of an innocent error.

Freada and Mitchell Kapor — Owners of Posting Platform POSTEROUS.COM — Hereby Asked to Disclose Reason RSS Feed Utilized by The Leslie Brodie Network for Purposes of “Posting” Conveniently Malfunctions?

Freada and Mitchell Kapor — owners of posting platform POSTEROUS.COM — hereby asked to disclose, if known, the reason an RSS feed utilized by The Leslie Brodie Network — an online news-media outlet for a faith-based group — for purposes of “Posting” very often appears to conveniently malfunction ?

As previosuly stated, both Freada Kapor and husband Mitchell Kapor were identified on The Leslie Brodie Report as potential wrongdoers in connection with overwhelming evidence pointing to a web of money laundering involving OBAMA FOR AMERICA, CaliforniaALL, Kamala Harris, CPUC, Level Playing Field Institute, The Kapor Center, Kapor Enterprises, Larry Lessig, Bettina Neuefeind, and culminating – as we are learning through the latest revelations pertaining to him — Robert Ross of The California Endowment.

In 2009, Mitchell and Freada Kapor’s non-profit Level Playing Field Institute (“LPFI”) forwarded to Kapor Enterprises “only”  $ 237, 977.00

 

LPFI 2009

 

 

 

In 2010, the amount Kapor’s LPFI forwarded to Kapor Enterprises jumped to $391,351.00 — an increase of around $160,000

 

 CaliforniaALL's Freada Klein Kapor of Level Playing Field Institute Payments to Kapor Enterprises 1

 

 

 

 

While other explanations certainly exist, preliminary and ongoing research caused YR to entertain thoughts the additional $160,000 from one entity controlled by Freada and Mitch Kapor (i.e. LPFI) to a separate entity controlled by Freada and Mitch Kapor ( i.e. Kapor Enterprises) stems from a peculiar grant LPFI suddenly obtained from, among others, The California Endowment.

 

Robert Ross of The California Endowment

Proxy Robert Ross, President & CEO of The California Endowment

The California Endowment (headed by proxy Robert Ross)  only “makes grants to nonprofit organizations, tribal governments and public agencies that directly benefit the health and well-being of Californians. Level Playing Field Institute (“LPFI”) founded in 2001 by Freada Klein Kapor to encourage kids to pursue careers in the fields commonly know as STEM — science, technology, engineering and math.

In 2010, The California Endowment awarded LPFI the sum of $50,000.

Incidentally, Mitch Kapor — a tech guru in his own right– provided technical assistance to the campaigns of both Barack Obama and Kamala Harris.

Addendum #1 to UC Regent Richard Blum and Wife – Senator Dianne Feinstein – Under Scrutiny In Re Prima Facie/Preliminary Evidence of Money Laundering Through the University of California: RICO Defendants Jeannine English and Husband Howard Dickstein of J

In TLR previously published comment stating that University of California’s Regent Richard Blum and wife — Senator Dianne Feinstein —  are under scrutiny in connection with:UCI Foundation’s Joe Dunn and Erwin Chemerinsky (both of Voice of OC — initially housed at home of Kinde Durkee; entity which the IRS apparently exempted from full compliance of its rules and regulations );UC Berkeley Foundation’s Gibor Basri and Freada Klein Kapor  (both of sham entity CaliforniaALL -used to launder money from utility companies to OBAMA FOR AMERICA, allegedly); Carry Zellerbach of CaliforniaALL; University of California Scripps’ operative Donna Lucas and Martha Fay Africa  (alleged paramour of Morrison & Foerster’s James Brosnahan — mastermind behind and legal counsel of CaliforniaALL),  we were remiss in not mentioning husband and wife —  Howard Dickstein and Jeannine English.

Both Dickstein and English are named defendants in two separate RICO suits advanced by The Spire Law Group and Dan Dydzak.

The allegations contained in the Spire complaint allude to money laundering by Howard Dickstein and Jeremy Ben Ami of J Street PAC — an anti-Israel entity recently embraced by Dianne Feinstein, subsequent to  financial  contributions from J Street PAC to Feinstein’s political campaign.

On January 20, 1980, in San Francisco, California, finance capitalist Richard C. Blum (born in 1936) and the ambitious Democratic Party politician Dianne Feinstein (born 1933) were married in a wedding ceremony at San Francisco City Hall. This marriage created a family economic and political alliance that in a little over a decade would allow them to become the top power couple in the state of California with a place on the national and world stages. They remain at the pinnacle of power today, he as a billionaire financier, speculator, real estate executive and deal maker; she as the senior Senator (California’s highest federal official), from the largest and most powerful state in the United States. They exemplify power as it is now wielded in the higher circles of the class system of the U.S. today, and illustrate well the dismal results of this system. This system is best characterized as a plutocratic kleptocracy, completely lacking in authentic democracy, operated by and for corporate racketeers, in short, a dictatorship of big capital, the top 1% of wealth holders, which makes up a ruling class.

Blum is finance capital personified, and Feinstein precisely illustrates the corrupt, war-mongering, pro-corporate politicians who inhabit the upper reaches of the U.S. ruling class. To fully comprehend their rise to power, vast wealth and socio-political stance, one needs to understand the key developmental trends in the U.S. and world political economy during Blum-Feinstein’s rise during the last few decades. Also necessary is a comprehension of how Blum-Feinstein have both adapted to and helped quicken these developmental trends.

The Financialization of Capital Accumulation

The financial capitalist now plays the leading role in capitalist development, this type of capitalist has taken over from the formerly dominant industrial capitalist. This process also has financialized class and class relations; these are more and more characterized by extreme differences in wealth and income from the top to the bottom of the class system. The top 1% of U.S. wealth holders, Blum and Feinstein among them, currently hold about 35% of the total wealth of the nation (43% of the financial wealth), and the top 20% have 85% of the total wealth. Conversely, the bottom 80% of the population owns only 15% of the wealth, the bottom 40% of the population owns only 0.3% of the nation’s wealth (basically nothing), and about one in six Americans (almost 50 million people) live in poverty, with no wealth and lacking even a minimal income.

In the case of Blum-Feinstein, we can see what being in the top 1% means. They currently own a private jet, a Gulfstream G650, worth $55 million in 2008. Blum-Feinstein also own an entire 161 room San Francisco hotel (The Carlton) and at least six other homes. At a low estimate, including their hotel, their personal real estate holdings, together with their private jet, are likely worth well over $100 million today.

Blum’s empire begins with his ownership of Blum Capital Partners, a firm he founded in 1975. In its 2005 edition, one standard industry source, Pratt’s Guide to Private Equity Sources, lists Blum Capital Partners as a firm “investing own capital” and having $1.589 billion under management. Two other, more recent sources, list the assets of Blum Capital at the higher levels of $2.8 billion and $4.5 billion. Blum’s firm’s clients reportedly include some of America’s wealthiest people and largest corporations, like oil heir Gordon Getty and Bank of American. Blum Capital Partners also has a joint venture with a much larger firm, The Texas Pacific Group (TPG) and Blum Capital Newbridge Capital to conduct this joint venture. Blum has been a Co-Chairman of both Newbridge and TPG.

Corporate Neoliberalism

Neoliberalism is a version of extreme free market thinking, putting forth the pure logic of capital. Neoliberalism’s critique and actions aim not only at ending the regulatory and welfare states, it wants to shrink government’s role in economic and political life down to the point where the wealthy corporate ruling class will totally control economy, society, and political life with no interference.

Long theorized by right wing thinkers, neoliberalism came into vogue during the 1980s as a way to open up more economic living space for capital, “opening new markets.” As these areas are opened up, one result is an increase in the commodification of various aspects of life. Neoliberalism also opposes the former Keynesian consensus that fostered aspects of the welfare state, that is, offering some government benefits to the working class to pump up effective economic demand. According to neoliberal ideology, government should be weak and market/commodity relations dominant, so the Keynesian approach should be scrapped.

Neoliberalism as an ideology is completely hypocritical however, because virtually all of the government welfare, sweetheart contracts, tax cuts, subsidies and bailouts given to major corporations continue under neoliberal governance, only the Keynesian type benefits to workers are really cut. In actual practice, therefore, it is a philosophy meant to make workers and their unions pay for the crisis tendencies of capitalism, making the capitalist crisis actually a working class crisis. Under corporate neoliberal thinking over the past thirty years, all aspects of the New Deal reforms of the 1930s have been under increasing attack.

Another aspect of neoliberal ideology is the ongoing attacks on unions, since union organizing and action to protect workers distorts the operations of the “free” market. Corporations are free to export jobs and income to low wage nations, but workers are often unjustly prevented from organizing unions both at home and in repressive nations abroad.

Blum and Feinstein’s policies and actions promote neoliberalism. Blum’s field of operation is worldwide, exporting jobs overseas to capture surplus value in areas of the world that are expanding rapidly at a time when there is stagnation in mature capitalist economies. Blum’s foreign investments have focused on Asia, including China, Australia, and Korea, often through the TPG and Newbridge Capital.

Feinstein and Blum are also major investors in two private educational corporations, the Career Educational Corporation, and ITT Educational Services. At the same time, Blum donated heavily to the political campaigns of California Governor Gray Davis, amounting to at least $75,000 in a two-year period beginning about 2000. As a result, Davis, following his “pay to play” politics, appointed Blum to be a member of the University of California Board of Regents. Within a few years, Blum became the Chairman of this Board while it raised tuition for the University’s students again and again, increases that amounted to 32% in only one year. Students have had to take out massive loans to attend school. One source indicates that the amount of debt loaded on all U.S. students has jumped from $90 billion in 1999 to $550 billion in 2011. As students were priced out of an increasingly expensive public university system, the inferior, privately operated correspondence type diploma mills where Blum had major investments became increasingly attractive. Not to be left out of the drive to weaken public education and teachers unions in order to open space for private capital accumulation, Feinstein had become a supporter of school vouchers by 2003, undermining public schools by allowing parents to use public money to pay for tuition at private or parochial schools in Washington, D.C. (San Francisco Chronicle July 23, 2003:A3).

A final aspect is cutting taxes on the wealthy, and, of course, Feinstein consistently favors such cuts. One example is Feinstein’s support for a phase-out of inheritance taxes on large estates. In July of 2000, she was one of a small group of Democratic Senators defending and voting for a Republican sponsored bill to repeal an estate tax law first passed in 1916, a law that applied to only the top 2% of taxable estates.

Imperialism, Militarism and War

The imperialist policies to be followed by the U.S. and NATO are discussed and developed by think tanks and policy forming organizations the leading U.S. private, (closely connected to official circles), such as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and the Brookings Institute. A similar organization, only international in membership is the Trilateral Commission, which draws its members from many countries in Europe, North America and Asia. Blum-Feinstein are closely connected with all three of these private foreign planning organizations and their imperialist policies. Both Blum and Feinstein have been members of the CFR for a number of years (membership is by invitation only). Blum has been a trustee of and part of the power structure of the Brookings Institute for years (Brookings regularly hosts the “Brookings-Blum Roundtable” discussion series) and Feinstein currently serves on the North American branch of the Trilateral Commission, after having first become involved with this organization in 1988. One result of these close connections is the fact that Feinstein is an enthusiastic war hawk and strongly supports all the current wars and occupations of U.S. imperialism, from Iraq and Afghanistan to Libya.

Feinstein also chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee. She approved of the appointment of General David Petraeus to head the CIA, saying that she had “enormous respect” for him, and that the U.S. should “…put all of our eggs in the Petraeus basket…” This illustrates that Feinstein has embraced the dangerous and illegal new method of warfare now being waged by the CIA under Petraeus. This new way of war is to send robotic machines (drones) over borders to kill thousands of people, even American citizens who are viewed as enemies.

Managed “Democracy”: A Corporate Dominated Political System

In recent decades the level of corporate domination of American politics has clearly increased. The pathways to intensified corporate control have been through the candidate selection process, campaign finance, massive lobbying, favorable media coverage to corporate ruling class linked candidates, expert advisers from ruling class think tanks and vote rigging through exclusion of people and through computers. Corporations claiming to be human beings can now purchase unlimited “free speech”, while real citizens are often denied such rights by their relative poverty, lack of access to media, or by police repression. Collectively, this has resulted in making the U.S. political system mostly a managed “democracy.”

Blum and Feinstein are key players in what can best be called the San Francisco Democratic Party political machine. Feinstein conducted Jerry Brown’s wedding (to a former Vice President of the Gap) where the entire Bay Area political machine was present, and hosted a wedding shower for Gavin Newsom at her Pacific Heights mansion, illustrating her close personal, economic and political ties to key members of this group. The group obviously also has important national level connections as well, former Vice President Al Gore is a long time friend and business partner of Blum.

While pretending to represent the interests of the rank and file, once in office, Feinstein and other corporate ruling class supported politicians payoff their partners with policies favorable to their interests, including government contracts. Again Blum and Feinstein are prime examples of how this corrupt system really works. Senator Feinstein, who was already in October of 1994 called “… the most prolific fund-raiser among all federal candidates” by the Los Angeles Times (October 28, 1994: A1), has received large campaign donations (in the thousands from each one) from a truly amazing list of top California and national level corporations.

The daughter of a wealthy doctor, educated at elite private schools, including Stanford University, Feinstein spent her way to political power, breaking records for campaign fundraising and spending beginning with her early campaigns for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Serving the wealthy, first and foremost herself and her husband, has marked her career. As the Los Angeles Times (October 28, 1994: A24) expressed it after observing only her actions for only a short time in office:

“A review of the senator’s first two years in office found that Feinstein supported several positions that benefited Blum, his wealthy clients and their investments. She was a vocal proponent of increased trade with China while Blum’s firm was planning a major investment there. She also voted for appropriations bills that provided more than $100 million a year in federal funds to three companies in which her husband is a substantial investor.”

In 2007 investigative reporter Peter Byrne published a series of reports that showed that her actions in the early 1990s was only the beginning of Feinstein’s aiding her husband’s firms. As chairperson of the Senate’s Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee from 2001-2007, Feinstein supervised and supported the appropriation of over $1.5 billion for two military contractors, URS Corporation and Perini Corporation, both companies that Blum had a controlling interest in. Blum later sold URS for a reported personal profit of $57 million. When Feinstein’s actions were exposed in early 2007, she abruptly quit her post on this subcommittee.

Blum returns the favor, raising more money for his politician wife than any other individual. He arranges contributions and loans to her campaigns in the millions. At least sometimes this got the power couple into trouble, even with the weak campaign finance laws that exist. In Feinstein’s failed 1990 Governor campaign for example, the Feinstein campaign failed to disclose a series of bank loans arranged by Blum that amounted to at least $2.9 million. Her campaign was fined a total of $190,000 by California’s state watchdog agency, the largest such cash settlement in state history, for an “outrageous case of gross negligence” (Los Angeles Times December 22, 1992: A1, A29).

A more recent example of gross negligence and incompetence in the area of campaign finance on the part of Feinstein and her staff was exposed when the FBI arrested her campaign treasurer, Kinde Durkee for stealing funds from a number of campaign accounts that she managed, including Feinstein’s (S.F. Chronicle September 14, 2011:A9).

As is the case on every other key question involving our collective future, Feinstein has been and is against the people’s interest in having a just and free society. In a 2011 editorial, the San Francisco Chronicle (May 26, 2011:A15) called her “one of the biggest cheerleaders for renewing…” Bush’s Patriot Act, which allows roving wiretaps, snooping into personal records and permits the unwarranted surveillance of people without having to show probable cause. The Chronicle said that Feinstein and other supporters of renewal were going “too far” and were “erasing bedrock guarantees” of the Constitution. This action is part of a pattern of spying favored by Feinstein. In 2007 she voted for immunity for telecommunications companies who illegally spied on their customers. Some of these, such as ATT, were also heavy donors to her political campaigns. As Chairperson of the Senate Intelligence Committee she also recently criticized the CIA for not spying enough on the Egyptian people, stating that “the CIA should have monitored Facebook more closely.”

The Ecological Crisis

The ongoing and accelerating global ecological crisis is deeply rooted in the anti-ecological imperatives of capitalist production and exchange for profit and accumulation. Corporate capitalism is a system requiring constant “expand or die” growth, a system whose main measure of success is how much capital is accumulated. This results not only in human alienation, it also results in the alienation from and destruction of entire natural ecosystems, such as forests, rivers, and grasslands.

Blum and Feinstein routinely undercut ecological needs in favor of the accumulation of wealth and power. One example is Feinstein’s relationship to wealthy corporate farmer Stewart Resnick, the owner of over one hundred thousand acres of prime farmland in the San Joaquin Valley. He has written big check after big check to her political campaigns, as well as hosted her at least two of his mansions. Over the past few decades he has also given several million dollars to the Democratic and Republican Parties and their candidates. Then, when Resnick called Feinstein in 2009 to weigh in on the side of corporate agribusiness in a drought fueled ecological dispute over water to big landowners or water for the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta’s ecological needs, Feinstein jumped in, pushing the agribusiness viewpoint onto two Cabinet level secretaries and calling for a sweeping review of the science to allow more water to go to Resnick and other big operators. Due largely to excessive water diversions, the Delta’s ecology is in serious trouble, with fish populations in catastrophic decline.

Blum and Feinstein also favor and work for “wilderness,” she in the Senate sponsoring legislation to set aside public lands as preserves, and he as a member of the Governing Council of the Wilderness Society. The nature and politics of Blum’s Wilderness Society can be seen by looking at its Governing Council and one of its “corporate partners.” The Governing Council is filled with the super rich like Blum and includes a member of the Getty oil family, a member of the Roosevelt family, a Rockefeller family in-law, a Texas Pacific Group private equity billionaire, an adviser to Clinton-Gore White House and a past chairman of Recreational Equipment Company, which sells products for outdoor activities. Its leading corporate partner is Bank of America, which, for years financed mountain top removal to mine coal by Massey Energy and International Coal Group. Under the pressure of direct action against it, the Bank of America cut back on but did not end such financing. The Blum-Feinstein-Wilderness Society approach of creating a few islands of non-development in a sea of life destroying capitalist ecocide is clearly inadequate as a strategy of ecological and human survival.

Conclusion: Blum-Feinstein and the Corporate State

The five interrelated waves of our age, and Blum-Feinstein’s role, illustrate that the Democratic Party and its leaders are every bit against the people’s interest as the Republican Party. Both favor the corporate state and capitalist austerity, imperialism, war and capitalist ecocide. Blum-Feinstein stand solidly for the financialization of accumulation and the private use of this wealth to benefit a small group of wealthy owners (the 1%); they stand for neoliberal ideology; for imperialism, militarism and war; for undemocratic corporate political rule; and for weak and inadequate measures to confront the ecological crisis.

TIMELINE 2012: Richard Blum and The Slow Death of Public Higher Education (TLR Note:Relevant to University of Phoenix-CaliforniaALL-UCI Foundation- UC Berkeley Foundation-Kapors-Joe Dunn- Gibor Basri-Connection)

Source and complete article @: http://www.dissentmagazine.org/article/from-master-plan-to-no-plan-the-slow-d…

…..The for-profit industry that we understand today is much different from the small, local certification programs that used to compose the industry. As of 2009, more than 75 percent of students at a for-profit college are attending one owned by a private equity firm or a company traded on a major stock exchange. Modern concerns with for-profits’ potential abuses—both in duping students and exploiting federal programs—didn’t begin until the expansion of GI benefits for higher education in the period following the Second World War.

In the early 1990s, for-profits were subject to a series of Senate investigations. Georgia Democratic Senator Sam Nunn noted that students were “[v]ictimized by unscrupulous profiteers and their fraudulent schools” and “have received neither the training nor the skills they hoped to acquire, and instead, have been left burdened with debts they cannot repay.” Nunn said this after the committee learned about an Ohio repair school operating out of a fruit stand and recruiters who targeted welfare offices and housing projects for enrollees. Current recruitment practices are just as bad, if not worse. According to internal documents recently made available by a Senate investigation committee, recruiters at the for-profit college ITT were given diagrams of a “pain funnel,” with a series of questions designed to “poke the pain” of potential recruits. A Kaplan document told recruiters that their interactions with potential students should be “all about uncovering their pain and fears.”

The hearings in the 1990s led to a series of for-profit sector reforms and regulations. One key regulation required that at least 50 percent of students be enrolled at a physical campus in order for a program to be eligible for federal student aid. A 1998 pilot program allowed some schools to go below the 50 percent threshold and still receive federal aid, in order to study the effects, but it was the George W. Bush administration that sought to comprehensively remove regulations unfavorable to the industry. A former lobbyist for the (for-profit) University of Phoenix, Sally Stroup, became Bush’s assistant secretary for post-secondary education at the Department of Education and led a successful effort to remove restrictions on for-profit schools, including the 50 percent rule, and to grant them greater access to federal funding. The legislation was only several lines long, and was sneaked into a massive spending bill, but it opened the door to an expansion of the industry beyond what most people could have imagined at the time.


The standard political criticism of the for-profit industry is that it exists only to vacuum up government subsidies; that it is a problematic byproduct of government actions. This diagnosis is perfectly in line with the Reaganite complaint against government interference in the workings of the market. If we look at California, however, we see that this critique has it backward. For-profit education flooded the market only after the state began to abandon its responsibility to create sufficient institutional capacity in the public system. The problem is not government action, but inaction. As the government gave up its Master Plan responsibility to educate California students, the for-profit sector expanded to fill the demand.

As the government gave up its Master Plan responsibility to educate California students, the for-profit sector expanded to fill the demand.

Education expert (and UC Berkeley scholar) John Aubrey Douglass has found a similar pattern in countries such as Brazil, Korea, and Poland, which modernized too fast for the public sector to keep up with demand. The for-profit sector absorbs and even monopolizes the very subsidies that were intended to foster mass education, while providing poorer outcomes than the public sector. But whereas this problem, referred to as the “Brazilian Effect,” arises in developing countries as they seek to build a public higher education structure from scratch, the United States suffers instead from decay.

Under the neoliberal public policy regime of the past thirty years, the United States has moved from providing public goods directly toward providing coupons for the purchase of those goods in the private market. The private market encourages choice, competition, and innovation, its proponents say, especially compared to the gray, static, and inefficient public sector. Government grants, subsidized loans, and tax breaks would unleash market forces and use them to tackle the problems of higher education.

Such an approach would work only if high-quality private universities increased the amount of students they were willing to educate—if, in other words, the supply of good education were “elastic,” stretching to meet the demand of additional students. Instead, students are finding an inelastic market with collapsing public provision. They face skyrocketing prices and the rationing of quality education, with for-profits purveying counterfeit goods to make up the difference.

Sometimes policy failures are accidental. Sometimes there is a trail of breadcrumbs. In the case of California higher education, it is hard not to notice that policy failures have meant big business for the for-profit industry. And in some cases, that trail of breadcrumbs leads directly to the men and women who run the UC. UC Regent Richard Blum, for example, is not only the largest shareholder in two for-profit universities, Career Education Corporation and ITT Educational Services, but also, as Peter Byrne reported in a 2010 exposé, oversaw investments for the UC’s $63 billion portfolio at a time when the UC invested in the very same two for-profits. The problem isn’t anything as simple as pure corruption, but the decline of the public university is corporate capital’s gain, and investment firms like Blum Capital Partners know this quite well. The educational infrastructure of the future—and in many ways, of the present—is being built out of the very same crumbling public sector that men like Richard Blum have been entrusted with stewarding.

Ronald Reagan may not have seen this coming when he first set out to destroy what he saw as the creeping communism of master-planned and state-funded public education. His vision at the time was essentially negative, reactionary. But the conservative project he put in place in California in the 1960s remains with us today. Reagan was the trendsetter in making higher education into a problem to be solved with fee hikes and police. Other governors approached this problem in different ways, but the decision Reagan made to begin the destruction of the Master Plan hangs over all of them. Today, we can clearly see the results. Limiting the ability of the government to plan for the education of its citizens has left us with the worst of both worlds: students and families with too much debt and too few options.

Rupert Murdoch: Why is Jewish-owned press so consistently anti-Israel (TLR Note: Answer — stems from what would later would be referred to as “The Kapor Paradox” — which gave rise to 60 Days Suspension Scandal which gave rise to The Leslie Brodie Repo

Rupert Murdoch, the billionaire News Corp chief has tweeted his dissatisfaction with the news coverage of the burgeoning conflict in Gaza.

The 81-year-old media tycoon, who is an avowed supporter of Israel took to Twitter to call the coverage of events in the Middle East by CNN and the AP biased to the point of ’embarrassment.’

Stirring up controversy, Murdcoch also questioned, ‘Why is Jewish-owned press so consistently anti-Israel in every crisis?’ and asked if President Obama’s ‘friends in Egypt’ could stop the shelling of Israel.

Reaction to the tweets was swift with BuzzFeed political reporter Andrew Kaczynski saying he wanted whatever ‘Rupert Murdoch is smoking’ and New Yorker political reporter Ryan Lizza tweeted simply ‘wow’.

News Corp Chairman Rupert Murdoch has taken to his Twitter feed to question the 'bias' he feels that certain U.S. media organisations are displaying towards the fresh conflict in Gaza and Israel

TIMELINE 2011: Mitch Kapor:Silicon Valley really likes to think of itself as a meritocracy; TechNet’s Rey Ramsey: we live in a society where race is still a factor (TLR Note:TechNet / Manatt Phelps & Phillips)

Wayne Sutton has been asking venture-capital investors and Silicon Valley executives a question that’s not often broached here in the epicenter of the technology industry:

“Why aren’t there more black people in tech?”

“We live in a society where race is still a factor,” said Rey Ramsey, an African-American man who runs a political lobbying firm for the tech industry called TechNet. Referencing Facebook’s famous young founder, he added, “We’re waiting for the black Zuckerberg.”

A few standout black leaders have emerged in tech over the years, said Charles Moore, an African-American who founded Rocket Lawyer, a startup that offers online legal documents and advice. He cited Frank Greene, a pioneering semiconductor engineer turned venture capitalist who died in 2009, and Charles Phillips Jr., the former Oracle co-president, as inspirations.

Still others, like the founder of Kapor Capital, say risk-aversion within venture capital stifles changes in the demographics of entrepreneurs chosen to be financed.

“African-American candidates are much more likely not to match the pattern,” said Kapor, who hosted NewMe’s demo day at his office. “To recognize the truth is to accept that the winners at the top did so through a rigged game.”

His wife, Freada Kapor Klein, a longtime adviser to tech firms on racial diversity in employment, believes people of different racial or ethnic backgrounds can solve problems with technology that others can’t because of perspectives learned during their upbringings. Firms that recognize this, she said, should have an edge on less open-minded rivals.

The venture capitalists, including business-software designer Mitch Kapor, told them the struggles of blacks in the tech industry might be attributed to a concept called “pattern matching,” which is prevalent in venture-capital circles and yet alien to the rest of the business world.

“Silicon Valley really likes to think of itself as a meritocracy,” Kapor said. In fact, “the general state of Silicon Valley is completely backwards,” he said.

TIMELINE 2007: Los Angeles Times: Depends on What Your Definition of Lobbyist Is(TLR Note:YR’s new working assumption JE Proxy on Bog Also for Lehman (Duke, Perot, Reliant); later urgently appoints CPUC’s Peter Arth, Kapor ; CaliforniaALL)

Keeping true to his pledge not to take campaign funds from federal lobbyists, Sen. Barack Obama was raising bundles of money today way out in Sacramento, where, everybody knows, there are surely no lobbyists.

Not unless you count the 1,032 registered California lobbyists who billed their clients $77.9 million in the first half of this year, according to The Times’ Dan Morain.

Obama and John Edwards have been vocally critical of Hillary Clinton and Obama wagged his finger at her in Saturday’s YearlyKos Chicago forum for accepting campaign donations from lobbyists in Washington. She says they can represent “real Americans,” as noted both in a recent item here and a complete story by James Rainey on Sunday. Obama maintains lobbyist donations create special influence, which he says he is really, really against.

But apparently state lobbyists are something different because, everyone knows, none of them can have any connections in Washington. And, Obama claims, he would have no influence in Sacramento as president, no influence unless you include, say, holding executive authority over the U.S. Department of the Interior, which has final approval over all state gambling compacts with Indian tribes.

“It’s not perfect,” Obama explained to reporters including Morain before the fundraising lunch. “I still have to raise money.”

Hosts for today’s Obama fundraiser included former controller and failed Democratic…

…gubernatorial candidate Steve Westly, who sent letters to the capital lobby corps inviting them to “an intimate fundraiser for Sen. Barack Obama.”

The cost: $1,000 for the lunch, $2,300 for lunch and reception.

California lobbyists aren’t in the habit of donating to candidates, at least not directly. State law bars them from contributing to state lawmakers. That suits them fine. They’d rather hang on to their hard-earned money. Of course, no law bars them from urging clients to donate, and they regularly do that and, you’ll be surprised to learn, the clients readily respond with donations.

The lunch was held just half a dozen blocks from the state Capitol, in the trendy downtown loft offices of developer Mark Friedman and attorney Howard Dickstein.

Now, Dickstein is not a lobbyist. However, he does represent several Indian tribes that do own some of California’s largest casinos. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s aides used the same office loft to work out details of the governor’s gambling compacts with Dickstein’s clients. Obama has expressed public skepticism about gambling as a way for states to raise money.

Now, Dickstein’s wife, Jeannine English, helped organize today’s event. English used to be a partner at former Democratic Congressman Rick Lehman’s Sacramento lobby shop, but since has left. See how this all starts to flow together?

Meet Kapor #3 — Buchalter Nemer’s Jeff Kapor of Non-Profit UCLA Math Content Programs for Teachers and Students (MCPT),

Jeffrey H. Kapor is Chair of the Firm’s Apparel Practice Group and former Co-Chair of the firm’s Corporate Practice Group. Mr. Kapor focuses on the representation of apparel industry manufacturers, importers, retailers, converters, textile mills, factors and banks. His experience includes mergers and acquisitions, commercial law, debtor and creditor relations, financial and business planning, licensing, intellectual property matters and corporate law. Mr. Kapor has served as a Judge Pro Tem in the Los Angeles Municipal Court and is an arbitrator for the Los Angeles County Bar Association.

See source @:http://www.mathandteaching.org/about-us/advisory-board/jeff-kapor

In 2005, members of the UCLA Math Content Programs for Teachers and Students (MCPT), a math education group in the UCLA Department of Mathematics, began development of an algebra readiness program for students who were struggling to prepare for algebra. Through this work, a program called Introduction to Algebra was created.  The program met rigorous adoption criteria and was approved by the California Board of Education in November 2007 for use in California schools. Currently, the program is being used in more than sixty school districts. Introduction to Algebra is one of the more widely used algebra readiness programs in California. 

Because UCLA is not set up to handle the complexity of tasks associated with publishing and servicing a state-adopted math program, the MCPT authors started a non-profit organization (the Center for Mathematics and Teaching, incorporated March 2007) to handle the day-to-day operations of publication. From March 2007 – June 2010, CMAT’s tight relationship with the university made it possible for CMAT to publish Introduction to Algebra and provide training to its teachers, and for MCPT to offer programs using CMAT subsidies.  During that time, CMAT generated revenue from the book, and paid the university approximately $1,276,000. This money was used for various mathematics education programs. 

In 2010, the UCLA Mathematics Department and CMAT agreed that CMAT was ready to continue its work independent of the university.  As a result, on July 1, 2010, CMAT declared its independence from UCLA, and is now operating as a fully independent 501(c)3 charity
