Stephen Beal Update : My Cerritos High School Classmate Arrested During Investigation Into Aliso Viejo Bombing

Beal.  Yikes.

Arrest Made During Investigation Into Aliso Viejo Bombing

Amazing statement from the FBI; Orange County Sheriff’s Department; ATF; the United States Attorney’s Office; and agencies investigating the May 15 explosion in Aliso Viejo.
During the course of the investigation into the May 15 explosion in Aliso Viejo, investigators found a destructive device during the service of a search warrant at a Long Beach residence. The resident, Stephen Beal, 59, of Long Beach, was arrested on suspicion of being in possession of an unregistered destructive device. Mr. Beal is not being charged in connection with the explosion. He is expected to make an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana this afternoon. No additional details will be made available until Mr. Beal is officially charged in a federal criminal complaint later today, at which time officials will provide additional details.

Original post...

I just got a note from one of my former Cerritos High School classmates (circa 1974-78) who said that the suspect in that deadly bombing in Aliso Viejo yesterday has been identified as Stephen Beal, who went to high school with me and grew up with all of us in the 9071.

This doesn't make sense.

 Steve Beal that we grew up with was one of the most amazing kind hearted people you could ever imagine. Geek Chic.

 I had to look up the news stories that are being circulated. Yep. It's OUR Steve Beal who is the suspect in the bombing.

 Crazy to wrap my head around this one.

When you stand up for what you believe is RIGHT and JUST, then NO ONE can take you down.


I want everyone to know that in politics...sometimes NOT winning an election is actually a blessing in the long run.
I am dedicated and determined to continue to root out bad actors and actresses in politics and I will continue to only work for people and candidate and causes who are like minded.
Being a political consultant is a noble profession. Believe it or not, a majority of people who work in professional politics are pretty much decent, hard working people.
Sure, a few nut bags rear their ugly ass heads every once in a while.
But life is full of insane self-serving egotists.
I am not without flaws, but I am proud of the man in am today...and for this amazing gift that God continues to give me each and everyday.
We all have a past. I get that. I have a past. Some things I am obviously not proud of. but I am PROUD that I was able to take those dark chapters and to learn from then.
I will never be afraid of what lies ahead, and for taking on the corrupt political system here in the United States. We must never tolerate destructive people to tear us down
Life is good.
God in AMAZING.
We are Blessed beyond our wildest dreams, even when we think things around us are hazy....
Here's to you....all of you.....
This next chapter is now being written.

Listen: General John Kelly Tells Anti-American Pico Rivera City Councilman Gregory Salcido to 'Go to Hell!' Awesome!

Listen here 

(Go to 13:00 into podcast).
 
Thank God for President Donald Trump and his amazing Chief of Staff General John Kelly who blasted Anti-American Pico Rivera City Councilman Gregory Salcido and told him to "go to Hell," in a Fox Radio News program hosted by Brian Kilmeade.



"Well, I think the the guy ought to go to hell," Kelly said. "I just hope he enjoys the liberties and the lifestyle that we have fought for."

Salcido came under fire after video recordings of his rant were posted on social media.

"We've got a bunch of dumb … over there," Salcido says in the recording, using a expletive. "Think about the people who you know who are over there — your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever — they're dumb…. They're not like high-level thinkers, they're not academic people, they're not intellectual people. They're the freaking lowest of our low."

I have managed at least a half dozen city council campaigns in Pico Rivera.  Salcido is and always has been a dirty politician. 

Karma is a Bitch, dude.

Attorney Dave Vo: Ex-Westminster Planning Commissioner Heads to Federal Prision for 18 months.

I cannot stand public corruption of any type...and I am thrilled to see that a former Planning Commissioner from the City of Westminster has been sent to Federal prison for the next 18 months for taking a bribe...  $15,000 for your freedom for 18 months?  This Vo clown sold his soul for chump change, and he got caught.  #LockHimUp

Vo is an actual attorney right here in the Westminster area community.

Greed, Power. Corruption.


   


SANTA ANA, California – A former member of the Planning Commission for the City of Westminster was sentenced today to 18 months in federal prison for taking a $15,000 bribe to help a person obtain a liquor license.
          Dave Vo, 43, of Westminster, was sentenced by United States District Judge James V. Selna.
          Following a three-day jury trial, Vo was convicted in September of one count of bribery.
          Vo, who is an attorney, served as a Planning Commissioner in the Orange County city from early 2009 through early 2013. By virtue of his position, he had influence over the issuance of conditional use permits.
          In 2011, Vo solicited a $15,000 bribe from a confidential informant. The informant reported to the FBI that Vo had solicited a bribe in relation to the issuance of a liquor license. During August 2011, over the course of four meetings, Vo received cash payments that totaled $15,000 in exchange for pushing the liquor license permit through the city’s approval process.
          During the trial, the jury heard audio recordings of Vo soliciting the bribe – at one point telling the informant to “stay quiet” and “don’t even mention what’s going on” – and then saw video recordings of the payments being made.
          “To line his pockets, [Vo] made a calculated decision to help a bribe payer at the expense of law-abiding members of the community who sought conditional use permits and liquor licenses through legitimate channels,” prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memorandum filed with the court. “In so doing, [Vo] sold his influence on the Planning Commission, giving (as he called it) ‘inside’ access for ‘under the table’ money. That conduct reflects a profound breach of the public’s trust.”
          The case against Vo was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
          The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel H. Ahn of the Santa Ana Branch Office.

#SOTU 'Together, we are building a SAFE, STRONG, and PROUD America,' President Donald J. Trump

 
Official Photo from The White House
Here are some of the excerpts from President Donald J. Trump's FIRST State of the Union Address (held on January 30, 2018).  What an uplifting, solid, well delivered address.  Here is what the White House put out tonight right after the #STOU. 


  • Together, we are building a SAFE, STRONG, and PROUD America.
  • We want every American to know the dignity of a hard day’s work; we want every child to be safe in their home at night, and we want every citizen to be proud of this land that we love.
  • Just as I promised the American People from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reform in American history.
  • Our massive tax cuts provide tremendous relief for the Middle Class and small businesses.
  • Since we passed tax cuts, roughly 3 million workers have already gotten tax cut bonuses – many of them thousands of dollars per worker.
  • This is our New American Moment. There has never been a better time to start living the American dream.
  • Tonight, I want to talk about what kind of future we are going to have, and what kind of nation we are going to be. All of us, together, as one team, one people, and one American family.
  • Americans love their country. And they deserve a government that shows them the same love and loyalty in return.
  • For the last year we have sought to restore the bonds of trust between our citizens and their government.
  • In our drive to make Washington accountable, we have eliminated more regulations in our first year than any administration in history.
  • We have ENDED the war on American Energy – and we have ENDED the War on CLEAN COAL. We are now an exporter of energy to the world.
  • America has also finally turned the page on decades of unfair trade deals that sacrificed our prosperity and shipped away our companies, our jobs and our nation’s wealth.
  • America is a nation of builders. We built the Empire State Building in just one year – isn’t it a disgrace that it can now take ten years just to get a permit approved for a simple road?
  • I am asking both parties to come together to give us the safe, fast, reliable, and modern infrastructure our economy needs and our people deserve.
  • Struggling communities, especially immigrant communities, will also be helped by immigration policies that focus on the best interests of American Workers and American Families.
  • So tonight I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties, Democrats and Republicans, to protect our citizens, of every background, color, and creed.
  • As we rebuild America’s strength and confidence at home, we are also restoring our strength and standing abroad.
  • Last year I pledged that we would work with our allies to extinguish ISIS from the face of the earth. One year later, I’m proud to report that the coalition to defeat ISIS has liberated almost 100 percent of the territory once held by these killers in Iraq and Syria. But there is much more work to be done. We will continue our fight until ISIS is defeated.
  • Past experience has taught us that complacency and concessions only invite aggression and provocation. I will not repeat the mistakes of the past Administrations that got us into this dangerous position.

#SOTU Watch President Trump's First State of the Union Address Live at 9 P.M. ET

President Donald Trump will hold his first State of the Union Address tonight, and I have the LIVE FEED of this historical moment to share right here on my blog.



Also, I look forward to hearing the right life stories of these following Americans who will be highlighted in tonight's #STOU.

Here is a summary of these great Americans and why they are guest of President Trump and the First Lady.

Corey Adams: Corey Adams is a skilled welder at Staub Manufacturing Solutions in Dayton, Ohio, where he has worked for more than eight years. During 2017, Corey and his wife were able to become first-time homeowners, and they will invest their extra money from tax reform into their two daughters’ education savings.

Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas: Elizabeth Alvarado and Robert Mickens are the parents of Nisa Mickens. Evelyn Rodriguez and Freddy Cuevas are the parents of Kayla Cuevas. Nisa and Kayla had been close friends since elementary school, but in September 2016, the two girls were chased down and brutally murdered. Their deaths were among a string of 17 Long Island slayings that have been attributed to Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13.

Corporal (Ret.) Matthew Bradford: Matthew Bradford joined the United States Marine Corps straight out of high school and deployed to Iraq in 2006. In 2007, he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED). Shrapnel shot into both of his eyes, blinding him, and the explosion also took both of his legs. After multiple surgeries and therapy, Matthew reenlisted in the Marine Corps—the first blind, double amputee to do so.

Jon Bridgers: Jon Bridgers founded the Cajun Navy 2016, as a non-profit rescue and recovery organization to respond to flooding in south Louisiana. In 2017, the Cajun Navy set out to provide aid to those in Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey. He and the Cajun Navy 2016 have helped thousands of people across the South, and to this day, they are helping collect resources and donations for those who lost their homes in the storms.

David Dahlberg: David Dahlberg works as a fire prevention technician in southern California, stationed at the Pine Canyon Fire Station in the Santa Lucia Ranger District. In July 2017, he saved 62 children and staff members from a raging wildfire that had encircled their camp.

Officer Ryan Holets: Ryan Holets serves as a police officer in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In his six years on the force, he has been shot at twice and experienced several near-death encounters. Officer Holets and his wife adopted a baby from parents who suffered from opioid addiction, breaking down walls between drug addicts and police officers to help save lives.

Ashlee Leppert: Ashlee Leppert has dedicated her life to her country, serving as an aviation electronics technician in the United States Coast Guard. Last year, she rescued dozens of Americans imperiled during the devastating hurricane season. Nothing has left more of a mark on Ashlee than her efforts to lift a woman to safety in a helicopter basket. The woman was clutching a few bags of what Ashlee thought were clothes. As she drew the woman near, however, Ashlee saw four sets of children’s eyes looking at her as their guardian angel.

Agent Celestino “CJ” Martinez: CJ Martinez is a Supervisory Special Agent for the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations unit. He has spent much of his 15-year tenure working to dismantle transnational criminal organizations, including MS-13. His investigations have led to more than 100 arrests of MS-13 gang members who have been prosecuted for crimes, including homicide, assault, and narcotics and weapons trafficking. CJ is a proud veteran, having honorably served our Nation in the United States Air Force and Air National Guard for more than 22 years.

Staff Sergeant Justin Peck: Staff Sergeant Justin Peck has served in the United States Army for eight years. In November 2017, he was part of a team, along with Chief Petty Officer Kenton Stacy, that was conducting a multi-day mission with partner forces in Raqqa, Syria, to clear IEDs from territory previously controlled by ISIS. After the team had located and disarmed seven IEDs, Chief Petty Officer Stacy was clearing the second floor of a hospital building when he was struck by an IED blast and severely wounded. Without hesitation, Staff Sergeant Peck, who was holding a position outside the building, rushed to Stacy’s location on the uncleared, IED-ridden second floor. Staff Sergeant Peck’s actions—including applying a tourniquet, placing an endotracheal tube, and performing artificial respirations and CPR—were directly responsible for saving Chief Petty Officer Stacy’s life.

Preston Sharp: Preston Sharp was visiting his veteran grandfather’s grave in 2015, when he noticed that other local veterans’ graves were not being honored with American flags or flowers. Today, Preston has organized the placement of more than 40,000 American flags and red carnations on soldiers’ graves, as part of his goal to honor veterans in all 50 States and to challenge others to join the Flag and Flower Challenge (#FandFChallenge).

Steve Staub and Sandy Keplinger: Siblings Steve Staub and Sandy Kepingler started Staub Manufacturing Solutions, a contract manufacturing company specializing in metal fabrication, twenty years ago.  Today, they serve as president and vice president, respectively. Thanks to the “Trump bump” in their business, Staub Manufacturing Solutions has seen an uptick in sales, employment, and optimism. They have grown their team from 23 to 37 employees over the last year and recently expanded by acquiring a new building. Following enactment of the tax cuts and reform legislation last year, they were able to give all their employees larger than expected Christmas bonuses.

Stay glued here on my blog.

History is about to be made.

AUDIO: Pico Rivera City Councilman Gregory Salcido's Classroom Rant Against Marines Lands Him Suspended from his Classroom Teaching Gig


Pico Rivera City Councilman Gregory Salcido is and has always been a punk.

Karma grabbed him by the throat this past week when he went on a six minute diatribe verbally bashing a patriotic student who wore a sweatshirt emblazoned with the words "US Marines."

Salcido has used his high school students at El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera as his own built-in political campaign machine since the day he first ran for city council in this community that has been called the "Latino Mayberry" of the USA.

Salcido hates what America stands for and has indoctrinated his students for the past generation to "think his way" or else you will be humiliated in class and in front of your fellow students.



This is Guevara, but it may as well be Councilman Salcido.
He has posters in his class of Che Guevara, an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, physician, author, guerrilla leader, diplomat and military theorist. He has always been an embarrassment to the people of Pico Rivera. I know, I have personally ran two campaigns against him in the past with two different candidates and he loves to play dirty.

Thank GOD for cell phone cameras and for the brave student who caught this jackass on tape spewing his hatred from members of the US Marines.

Salcido has been placed on leave from ERUSD officials.

Voters need to DEMAND his IMMEDIATE RESIGNATION from the Pico Rivera City Council IMMEDIATELY.

Listen to this tape.

Then let's do something about this situation by peacefully demanding his departure from Pico Rivera City Hall.

Better yet, lets call in the Marines to take care of this clown....once and for all.
