Re: “Ethics Commission: Oakland Councilmember McElhaney Violated Conflict-of-Interest Rules, Accepted Illegal Gifts

It doesn't sound like oany of this was done secretly. Don't you love how the ethics commission did not investigate until EBX reported on this corruption? Kinda like how most of Oakland's corruption goes uninvestigated?

Re: “Ethics Commission: Oakland Councilmember McElhaney Violated Conflict-of-Interest Rules, Accepted Illegal Gifts

So... While this council member has been screaming for low income housing, she violated the ethics of the office she holds to block construction of new housing in blighted West Oakland... And EBX has backed her solidly! I don't think Boss Tweed could have done it better.

Re: “Ethics Commission: Oakland Councilmember McElhaney Violated Conflict-of-Interest Rules, Accepted Illegal Gifts

Let me guess: they "ruled" she violated ethics laws, but will somehow be found innocent, and considering how corrupt Oakland city govt also is, they'll probably give her an award.

Re: “Building Engulfed by Deadly Oakland Fire Had Pending Habitability Complaints

Just like 9-11 was an Inside Job & Independent Investigation should be Financed as a Dear Friend was Murdered there for a Nationwide Gentrification of WareHouse living. Some of a few signs of Arson and by the Cities vested Interest are. 1) Lead Tenant moved family out and was later house in the MARRIOTT Hotel (400 plus a Night for a MONTH?) OTHERS WOULD BE DETAINED OR FLEA BAG AT BEST HOTEL. 2) Immediate action Nationwide Gentrification against Warehouse living (Baltimore to west Coast) 3) 38 out of 80 Party goers Killed nearly half a High Percentage with access exits Blocked or locked. 4) Fire Dept (13) one Block away meaning with soo Many Murdered (Multiple Flash Pts involved) which still NO Definite spot has been determined like even it started next Door. 5) I and my Campaign manager were Downtown and went by the Catholic Church and they had their Demon Pope Light on and we took pics of it while on our Way to Burn a Sissy Flag on the Steps of Scottish wrong Temple where those Hall Monitors (Child Molesters) get their Right to Assault the Public.

Re: “Parents, Teachers, and Students at Oakland Charter School Accuse Leadership of Mismanagement

I am sorry to see a school and its community go through such difficult times. I love Oakland and all of you deserve the best. We all need to operate in good faith. If you start there and always remind yourself that you need to meet that standard every day, that's a strong foundation. When things go wrong, instead of hunkering down and hiding out, face the people honestly. I have seen administrations go into bunker mode too often and it doesn't work -- ever! I have made hundreds of mistakes and some of them turned out to be the best learning experiences because I dealt with them openly and even my detractors appreciated that. I always keep an eye on Oakland schools and forgive my two cents, but when I see so many students writing I feel compelled to chime in.

Re: “Report: When It Comes to Mortgage Loan Servicing, Banks Are Still Failing to Comply With the Law

Re: “Federal Judge Orders City of Oakland to Fix Internal Affairs and Criminal Investigations of Police Misconduct

Burris is a hypocrite. He supported a totally frivolous civil suit against my father and I costing us about 130K when a person who borrowed money from us sued after breaching the loan contract AND defaulting. He's no Robin-hood. My father and I are white and the people who sued us are minority race. They had unlimited resources to pretty much harass us into giving his clients what they wanted.

Re: “Oakland Looks to Close Owner Move-In and Occupancy Loopholes, Reduce Evictions and Harmful Rent Increases

The City's own surveys show that public concerns about housing affordability, displacement and homelessness rank higher than concerns about crime. In which case, the City is actually focusing on issues that are of most concern to Oakland residents.

As for this claim: "many who have had sweetheart rent deals for decades and quite honesty want to keep them for life. That is big motivator for making claims that may not actually be true", what actual documentation do you have that this is widespread?

The vast majority of Oakland renters are paying far more than 30% of their income for rent. That's not a "sweetheart rent deal".

Re: “Oakland Looks to Close Owner Move-In and Occupancy Loopholes, Reduce Evictions and Harmful Rent Increases

I would want to see actual documentation concerning these alleged evictions. There is no actual proof presented in the article, just allegations by people, many who have had sweetheart rent deals for decades and quite honesty want to keep them for life. That is big motivator for making claims that may not actually be true.

The city council seems hell bent on attacking property owners and private property rights by passing anti property owner laws, which I believe are unconstitutional. They just keep adding on more rules, more laws. Pretty soon most landlords are going to sell their properties because it won't be worth the trouble.

Given the high crime rates, gangs and drug problems in Oakland you would think they could be using their time to tackle the really important safety issues that have plagued Oakland for decades.

Re: “Federal Judge Orders City of Oakland to Fix Internal Affairs and Criminal Investigations of Police Misconduct

One wonders exactly what the Mayor and City Administrator spend their publicly-financed time doing.

Especially in the light of the Mayor's campaign promise to make public safety the number one priority. That means making OPD work in every aspect of policing, including that small thing we call ethics.

Should we assume that the Mayor hired her pal as City Administrator because they both were fundamentally committed to improved public safety and police reform?

Or should we assume that both the Mayor and her Administrator live on Mars?

Re: “California Took a Big Step Closer to Regulating the Cannabis Industry

Anyone can grow hemp in California. There are just a few hoops through which one must jump first. Biggest one: finding a researcher who's interested in studying part of the plant you're not interested in growing - or its agroclimactic impacts, suitability as a drought crop; anything where the science doesn't require study of the plant matter itself. Set up a industrial hemp pilot research program at an accredited university. The scientist gets to conduct cutting edge research, and you get all the 'agricultural waste' aka the industrial hemp you want to grow.

In a few years it should be much simpler. But it's possible now if you're willing to put in the effort.

Re: “California Took a Big Step Closer to Regulating the Cannabis Industry

The passage of 64 included the legalization of cannabis as well as hemp just like what Colorado did. I heard California Prop 64 copied the State ballot for Colorado that included the legalization of cannabis and hemp together. Last I heard we are waiting for big brother to give us the rules, regulations and taxes to grow a plant that has over 50,000 uses.

Re: “Arson in Oakland: Is Someone Torching New Developments?

The phrase "God gave Noah the rainbow sign, no more water the fire next time" was the source of the Baldwin quote above. It should be understood that the fire referred to in this passage was divine in nature and potential origin. The idea of humans invoking and exacting such a level of biblical judgement is cause only for concern given the arrogance and limitation endemic to mankind.

Re: “Arson in Oakland: Is Someone Torching New Developments?

Fulani. perhaps you are forgetting that fires can and frequently do KILL people. No matter where you stand on gentrification, the notion of burning down constructions sites/buildings by way of protest is absurd. Constructing a rationale for arson like this is in my view irresponsible. It could only serve to encourage such criminal activity.
