Associate Producer  and  Long-Time Full Disclosure Board Member John Baron passed away last June. This is our tribute to him and the contribution he made to all of us.

John Gibson Baron June 25, 1944 – June 23, 2014

Former General Manager Laemmle Theaters, and long-time Board Member of the Full Disclosure Network, passed away in Santa Monica two days shy of his 70th birthday. Born in Rochester, New York in 1944 to Greta Gibson Baron and Dr. George J. Baron, radiologist. John graduated from Columbia University with degree in English Literature and received a Masters Degree in Film and Television from UCLA.

On December 7, 2014, John Baron’s Life was celebrated at the Grand Opening of the Full Disclosure Network® Headquarters in Marina del Rey. An eight minute video presentation featured clips from some of his T.V. appearances. View the video here:

A mass was held for John at Santa Monica St. Annes Catholic Church.

While attending Columbia University, John earned his place in history when he filed a shareholder lawsuit after discovering alleged corporate malfeasance when monitoring his stock portfolio. Although a legal novice, his lawsuit brought about the entire Allied Pictures Corp. Board of Directors to be removed and the recovery of  fees and costs. This case known as Baron v Allied Pictures Corp. 337 A.2d653(Del.Ch.1975) set a precedent that is cited in many cases to this day.

After earning his Masters Degree, he went to work for Max Laemmle of the Art House Theater chain who embraced the young John Baron whose work ethics and values he shared. John served for 14 years as Theater Manager for Laemmle who then promoted him to General Manager charged with supervising renovations and new theater construction projects for 18 years, eventually leaving the company following Max Laemmle’s death and 32 years of loyal service.

John became associated with the Full Disclosure Network ® Cable TV program in 1992 in Santa Monica after the body of a homeless woman was found in the dumpster behind the Laemmle Theater. As General Manager John spoke out against the City’s policies that engendered anti-social behavior on the streets of Santa Monica and posed a danger to the public and theater patrons.

John graduated from McQuaid Jesuit high school which, along with his family life, inspired the strong ethical and spiritual values that would become the mainstay of his life. Survived by brother Robert and sisters Susan (Paul Lazio) and Cindy (David Able).

Vern McKinley, author of “Financing Failure”  appears in this Segment 1 of a 9 segment interview from the Full Disclosure Network(R) Special Series on the Federal Reserve System.  McKinley served as Policy Advisor to Central Banking Officials and foreign governments describes his experience working for the Federal Reserve System and Resolution Trust Corporation.  He also relates how the government shut down the Savings and Loan Companies and hundreds of them were eventually re-opened back into the private sector. . He blames government for initiating  problems where the Federal Reserve did not do their job, or even a good job of overseeing the economy and keeping the monetary policy steady.  He cites the periods from the depression and into the late 70’s and 80’s that led to the failure of the Savings and Loans. He covers the early 1990’s  till now where the home ownership was pushed and led to foreclosures.  He says the Bush and Clinton policies pushed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mack to boost homeownership  The Federal Reserve led this by easing monetary policy leading to encouraging people to take on (questionable) mortgages

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.

Allan Meltzer, Ph.D., American Economist, Senior Fellow, Hoover Institute, and author of a three-volume history of the Federal Reserve, describes working with U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH), and David Vitter (R-LA) to help write a bill that would downsize banks “too big to fail,” to protect the public and smaller community banks by helping to level the playing field. 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.
