Paul Orfanedes, Judicial Watch Director of Litigation, describes the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision to “Reverse and Remand” the First Amendment lawsuit filed on behalf of Leslie Dutton and the Full Disclosure Network(R) (FDN).  By ordering the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California to hear the case, the Appellate Court’s decision has breathed new life into allegations that viewpoint discrimination played a role in denying FDN use of an empty courtroom in the Los Angeles County Superior Court for FDN’s documentary about the controversial case of former U.S. Prosecutor Richard I. Fine, who was taken into custody in that very court room in March of 2009 and held for “coercive confinement”) the Los Angeles County’s Men’s Central Jail for approximately 18 months.

Tempers Fly as Sheriff Candidates Todd Rogers and Paul Tanaka swap insults in two separate interviews that provide a striking contrast of views with animosity.  First they disagree on Sheriff Baca’s role in the alleged obstruction of justice issues now taking place in Federal Court, Second they tangle over their roles in the Budget process and relations with the Board of Supervisors. Rogers continues to attack Tanaka claiming he and Baca should both be indicted for their roles in the current scandal and he claims to have “inside knowledge” and details of the obstruction of justice.  Tanaka suggests that Rogers should go before the Grand Jury if he has inside knowledge. Rogers claims that U S Assistant Attorney “outed” Tanaka as being a “subject” of the investigation. but they agreed that the Federal Trial was not manipulated by power brokers and influential backers supporting front runner Jim McDonnell.

“Other countries are nibbling around the edges of our financial system,” but that the dollar will not be replaced. According to Allan Meltzer, Ph.D., American Economist, Senior Fellow, Hoover Institute, and author of a three-volume history of the Federal Reserve, asserts that that the Euro is another example, where the currency bond market used to be mostly dollars, but is now mostly in Euros. He notes that before the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, half of all new issues went on the stock exchange in New York, but regulations drove the market toward London.

He acknowledges that trying to pass such a bill would be a struggle, but if there were to be another financial crisis, it might be done. G. Edward Griffin, author of “The Creature from Jekyll Island,” charges that Congress gave up the power to print money to banks with the Federal Reserve Act, and that banks are profiting by interest on nothing without the requirement of a gold or silver standard.

Todd Rogers, LASD Assistant Sheriff and candidate for Sheriff, divulges that there has been some media bias by certain newspapers toward particular Sheriff’s candidates favored the downtown Los Angeles elite. He discusses Under Sheriff Paul Tanaka being told in court by the Assistant U.S. Attorney as he testified for a defendant in the FBI obstruction investigation that he was under scrutiny as well, which Tanaka acknowledged. Rogers notes that he would not be running for Sheriff if he were the subject of an investigation, and he finds it reprehensible that defendants in the case are facing trial when it should be Sheriff Baca and Under Sheriff Tanaka since they directed the operation.

He explains that Switzerland has two giant banks much larger than the Swiss economy, and could not be bailed out, and points out that these banks are required to have 19% equity capital, forcing them to think differently about their practices, and states this is what the U.S. should do. Meltzer recalls the Bernie Madoff debacle, and some lawyers bragging to him about circumvention regulations while staying inside the law.

Todd Rogers, Assistant Sheriff to LASD Sheriff Lee Baca, and candidate for Sheriff, discloses that there’s evidence that Sheriff Lee Baca  tried to influence the election after he resigned. He notes that Baca very actively raised funds for Commander James Hellmold, a close friend, and asked Rogers to drop out of the race at the eleventh hour and become Interim Sheriff. Rogers reveals that he was asked to give a contract to a towing company “friendly” with the Sheriff’s Department, and that Tanaka and the Assistant Sheriff were supportive of that action. He said he refused, and admitted that many of the unethical behavior was not illegal, and therefore couldn’t be reported to higher or outside authorities. Rogers criticized Sheriff’s candidates Commander Robert Olmsted and Hellmold, for changing residences to be eligible to run for that office. He notes that he lives in Lakewood, and is a city official there.

This is Segment 4 of 6. Economist Allan H. Meltzer, Ph.D., charges that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fostered the wrong incentives that led to the home foreclosure situation. He points out  public’s  interest takes back seat to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) training that undermine regulators’ objectivity. and promotes impractical, harmful, policies.  Meltzer believes that changing incentives for those who are regulated, paying for their mistakes, such as insisting they hold 15% equity capital and requiring non-payment of dividends and bonuses if it drops to 10% is a huge incentive for change.

Todd Rogers, Assistant Sheriff to LASD Sheriff Lee Baca, and candidate for Sheriff, describes his tenure as Assistant Sheriff, and called it an “awesome responsibility” to be trusted by Sheriff Lee Baca with complete authority over 17,000 members, training, the budget, and the academy for over 14 months. Rogers acknowledges that the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors held back funds because of their dislike of Baca, and that Rogers met with them to obtain an additional $40 million for the budget. Rogers describes himself as the “antithesis” of Under-Sheriff Paul Tanaka, and said that when Baca promoted him, he told him he needed someone trusted and respected inside and outside the department. Rogers reveals that he would expand the concealed carry law, but would be judicious about his choices. He discusses campaign funding by powerful business interests leading to favors owed, which he opposes.
