Let's be perfectly clear, crybabies...Zuma Dogg did some investigation into Grand Ave Project when he did that article about three years ago in LA Weekly. But don't worry, none of the good stuff I wanted to include in the article actually made it in. For example, besides the fact the biggest point I wanted to make was that the project would never get off the ground anyway (I was insulted, demeaned, scoffed and told I was wrong, although it appears I was right), was that LACERS pension money was being invested in the project.
I didn't know much about fake billion dollar projects, but didn't think pension money was appropriate to be investing in a project like this after reading the entire deal.
SO, I started to mention it on my blog and during public comments, since LA Weekly didn't want to include any of that.
BUT, turns out it was kinda the thing to discuss, and guess what, LACERS eventually pulled out of the project, either because they finally came to the same conclusion Zuma Dogg did, or because I made so much noise, they felt pressure to pull out. EITHER WAY, I WIN! EITHER WAY, I WAS RIGHT! HA HA!
So then, if they were pushing pension money into that bullshit, I could only imagine where else it was going. So I asked a LACERS higher-up about it one day, and got the wink-wink, nod-nod that Villar was INDEED twisting the pension board's arm to invest in his crony-crap.
So I applied pressure from there, when I found out how shady and dangerous all of this risky (behind the back) investing of the pension money was under (then) current global economic conditions. In other words, I saw the Wall Street crash coming and the pending economic doom that was heading our way, and even my critics will tell you I was VERY EARLY in the predictions when it wasn't so obvious to most. And enough time to do something about it.
MEANWHILE, I woke up day, after day, after day, after day and went to City Hall and SCREAMED, yes, SCREAMED for a FEDERAL INVESTIGATION INTO THE LACERS MONEY.
Well, the city then announced they lost $7 billion in pension money in non-investment grade Wall Street (shell) bullshit and belly-up Downtown real estate projects of Villaraigosa's now bankrupt cronies and the city is facing bankruptcy as they are forced to deal with a budget that now only leaves .35 cents of every dollar to city services as the other .65 cents of the dollar goes to the pension bailout.
And the city is optimistic and the recovery plan is to hope the stock market goes back up and things do not get worse. (ZD says they are going to get worse and you cannot base you city budget on the plan of a HUGE Wall Street rally into the 10,000 plus range.)
SO NOW, HELL YEAH THERE IS A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION. AND AGAIN, SAY WHAT YOU WANT LOSERS, EITHER I HELPED TRIGGER THE INVESTIGATION THROUGH MY RELENTLESS TELEVISED PUBLIC COMMENTS, OR I WAS RIGHT ON THE MONEY, AGAIN. EITHER WAY...I WIN! Either I am triggering the investigations by making so much noise they have to react, or I just happen to be able to pick the BIG STUFF, before it happens when NO ONE ELSE SAYS ANYTHING AND REMAINS SILENT.
So now, again, HELL YEAH, there is an investigation. And let me tell you something losers...YOU BET YOUR ASS ZUMA DOGG NOW HAS CITY HALL SO FUCKING NERVOUS WITH THE LATEST FEEDBACK I HAVE BEEN PROVIDING THE PUBLIC REGARDING OBAMA BEING PISSED ABOUT VILLAR & CITY COUNCIL'S SPENDING OF THE STIMULUS MONEY AND THE CRA AND THE PENSION MONEY BEING INVESTED IN BULLSHIT ON PURPOSE BEHIND EVERYONE'S BACK.
AND IT'S NOT SOME CHUMP CHANGE COUNCILMEMBER PROVIDING ME THE INFO. YES, YES, YES...THERE IS A LEAK IN WASHINGTON, DC, and the run-off is running down the drainage pipe into Zuma Dogg's cell phone. YES, I am hearing it from D.C.
SO YES, ZUMA DOGG HEARD ON FRIDAY, THAT ACE LOSER WAS CALLING ROM EMMANUEL TO SEE IT EVERYTHING IS O.K. SO YES, ZUMA DOGG IS HERE TO SAY, HE HAS CITY HALL IN A PRETZEL KNOT OF FEAR AND THEY ARE ALL NERVOUS AS FUCK AND I HAVE BEEN RIGHT ALL ALONG, EVERY STEP OF THE WAY, INCLUDING NOW.
SO HOW NERVOUS DOES IT MAKE YOU ANTONIO, TO KNOW THAT ZUMA DOGG HEARD YOU HAD ACE CALL ROM TO SEE IF IT'S ALL O.K.
OF COURSE THEY ARE TELLING YOU IT'S O.K.
It's only going to be O.K. for people who do not like corrupt assholes who think the public money and pension money is theirs to take and give it to coward-pussies like Ron Burkle and Darius "Dumb Pussy" Anderson?
AND YES MAYOR, YOUR LAPD SECURITY DETAIL DOES NOT LIKE GETTING DRAGGED ALL OVER TOWN WHILE YOU BANG EVERY CHICK WHO WILL HAVE YOU , WHETHER YOU ARE PAYING, OR OTHERWISE.
YOU'RE MORE OUT OF CONTROL THAN SCARFACE, AND ZUMA DOGG HAS BEEN DOING YOU A FAVOR ANTONIO, BELIEVE IT OR NOT. I've been trying to stay humble, and have some compassion and empathy for you because I do feel bad that all of y'all got caught with your hand in the cookie jar, and now you are in BIG trouble. But I am a desperate man, and REALLY don't give a fuck at all. Mike had done a good job of keeping me toned down and created empathy for you, Antonio, but he hasn't had anything smart or insightful to say in a while, and me liking him isn't enough to hold back anymore, you orrupt-going-straight-to-indictment FUCK UP OF A FAILURE MAYOR!
SO TO BE CLEAR, I FUCKED YOU CORRUPT ASSHOLES UP...YES, I MADE A HELL OF A LOT OF NOISE ON THE PENSION STUFF, AND DID WHAT I DO BEHIND THE SCENES AS WELL; AND NOW I AM HERE TO TELL YOU FEDERAL PEOPLE WORKING OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE ARE FULLY AWARE OF WHAT ZUMA DOGG HAS BEEN SAYING, AND CITY HALL IS PANIC INFESTED AND CALLING OVER TO ROM TO SEE WHAT IS UP.
I FUCKING ROCKED THE BIGGEST STORY THIS CITY HAS EVER SEEN. SOME OF YOU KNOW IT ALREADY. THE REST WILL FIND OUT SOON ENOUGH.
LA Weekly didn't want to mention it. Couldn't get talk radio to let me mention it. And now, I am in BIG BIG trouble deteriorating more quickly than Michael Jackson on the streets of L.A.
MAYBE I'LL SIT HERE AND KEEP UPDATING. Keep taking ZD for granted.There is plenty of time. I know people get excited and blurt out that, "I'm going to hire you!" But that's just what you say at the time to make yourself feel good because I am so fucking amazing and awesome, you don't know how I do it.
YEAH, KEEP WAITING TO REACH OUT TO ZD ON ANY OF THIS...PLENTY OF TIME...I KNOW YOU ARE JUST BUSY. THINGS WILL LIGHTEN UP AND SLOW DOWN SOON ENOUGH. OH SORRY, ZUMA, JUST GOT A LITTLE BUSY. OH SORRY ZUMA, HANG IN FOR ANOTHER WEEK/MONTH/INSERT TIMELINE. PLENTY OF TIME...IT'S NOT LIKE I AM SUFFERING HEALTH ISSUES ON THE STREETS OF L.A. I WILL ALWAYS BE AROUND AND AVAILABLE WHENEVER THE MOON LINES UP WITH THE STARS AND THERE IS THAT EXACT "PERFECT MOMENT" TO GET BACK TO ZD AND FOLLOW UP ON ANY AND ALL THE BULLSHIT YOU LOVED FILLING HIM WITH. Until then, I'll probably just of a heart attack first.
UPDATE: If you want to know who will be replacing Wendy Greuel as City Council President Pro-Tem when they vote on Wednesday, do your own research and find out and post it for everyone to see. I'm not getting paid to be a reporter.
