Peeved that anyone is cutting Obama slack now that he shows his love of J Edgar Hoover/FBI over the wishes of the Pope, Dalai Lama, Mndelas, Desmond Tutu, Madre theresa, european Parliament, World Council of Churches--he could have stood up for TTUTH,but

Re: “As Trump Advances Pipelines, Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan Calls on CalPERS to Divest

Thank you Rebecca Kaplan. I urge you to run against Libby Schaaf for Mayor. The fact is most think she's way in over her head and the fact that the odious Peggy Moore is still on her staff--was she vetted thoroughly at all? I also call your attention to En bridge which has 3 lines planned for the Duluth/Superior area and dreams of tr sands oil tanker on the Great Lakes.

Re: “Letters for the Week of December 14, 2016

I asked Schaaf via FB, if she raised the issue of racist mascots with any NFL owners. No response. I concur, she is a liar and hires worse: Peggy Moore.
Where does the buck stop? (from one who spent 12 years in iffy warehouse spaces in Berkeley and Emeryville for my band. The buck did not stop with Jerry Brown-Ron Dellums and hopefully one-termer Schaaf. Anyone remember when Brown deigned to attend a Council meeting to vote against a 10% low income set aside in buildings seeking height or other zoning variances? At the time, Emeryville and Berkeley had 20% low income set asides. A reason I can afford to live in Arreguin country. We have taken Berkeley back from Bates and his billionaire developer friends. I guess that $$ goes to Skinner and Schaaf now>
Libby Schaaf: Fire the lying, violent, opportunist Peggy Moore before she incorporates you into her game. John Iversen

looks like a great Xpress issue!

Re: “Law Enforcement Killed 90 Oakland Residents Since 2000, And 74 Percent Were Black

I think we should be concerned with white collar criminals at City Hall as well. Especially the violent Peggy Moore who is quite chummy with the OPD and should be fired by Mayor Libby Schaff before the taint spreads. The Express article this week (Sept 3 now) points out she is a liar and a fraud, I'd add the word violent as an adjective here. A retired nurse says: "that's Peggy Moore. She's an opportunist." I've know said nurse for 45 years and I believe her.

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

Peggy Moore violently attacked peaceful Chelsea Manning supporters at the OAK Obama HQ in Aug 2012. As 3 older women sat on sidewalk in front the swinging front doors, she slammed the doors outward into their backs. After the 8 vets inside calmed down volunteers and staff who came at them with chairs, Moore struck again. This time she opened the doors toward her and kicked the 3 women in the back and she's built like a punter.

She claims to be a renter, but I'd love to see her tax returns for the past 5 years.
As a member of the Radical group LAGAI said: "That's Peggy Moore. She's an opportunist" Big question: What is she doing on the Mayor's staff--making Libby look like she condones violent behavior?

Re: “Law Enforcement Killed 90 Oakland Residents Since 2000, And 74 Percent Were Black

From John Iversen, Berkeley. Sadly the most ignored fact anywhere has been reported by the Guardian. Native people are killed at a rate 50% higher than blacks by police: 5.4 million to 3.6 million per capita. We are ignored, hidden away in rural areas with no TV cameras or even newspapers to report the murders. I am waiting on Color of Change or another POC group to do something for native people. NATIVE LIVES MATTER! LEONARD'S LIFE MATTERS! This is why I urge readers to support Nanci-Armstrong-Temple. Darryl Moore has become a tool of big $$ developers, abstained on a clemency for Peltier resolution, and has become the Mary Wainwright he once defeated. And don't get me started on his personal life! I am no angel and neither is he! John Iversen

Re: “Free Will Astrology

Love Rob! glad he's back. Very erudite and spot on. This week an absence has been a very useful asset, as I always try to take on way too much!

Re: “The Collapse of Berkeley Health Center

Just another organization Gwen rowe Lee ran into the ground, much like AMHI or giving contract to friends at EM cleaning (Elijah Mohammad). giving jobs to family and friends. Keith Carson got hip to her doings and gov't funding began to evaporate. AMHI was guilty of double dipping. Getting two grants of say $40,000 but only half went to AMHI.

Like the East Bay AIDSWALK (kicked my org Friends of Ugandan Orphans out) She packed board of overseer: East Bay AIDS Advocacy Foundation which had not met in 2 years just to throw me out over objections from now Summit Director Steve O'Brien, Hazel Wesson and Steve Chase, formerly of Walgreens. If Steve was not there getting Walgreens to help out (1/2 the walkers). Gloria Cox Cowell, Adreinn Mc Call are bellicose opportunists (much like Black Agenda Reports' Glen ford spoke of Susan Rice. Deanna roberts totally incompetent as $1000s of $ specified for a certain org went to the general walk in2012? sometime around there. No walk in 2015, the 2016 wALK WAS in March. No 990s ever sent to me. robert and sam, yet another AIDS org to examine! John Iversen Free Leonard Peltier! co-founder Occupy AIDS, Act Up East Bay, both berk and Oak needle exchanges, worked 30 years alongside Maudelle Shirek (RIP 101.75--exemplary life for sure! If anything Sam was easy on her as he did not know her previous philandering, double dipping, nepotism, cronyism
