It is obvious the local paper husbands a complete bunch of morons and propagandists. Unable to deviate from the party line, their recent glowing article about the revival of Project Phoenix was, I assume, based upon their heads stuffed so far up the ass of the city, they were unable to get oxygen to the brain, and therefore could be considered a delusional rant. (see DOF answer in opposition)
The City of 29 Palms and the local fish wrapper, would like to have you think the issues they raise in their Petition for a Writ of Mandate against the State Department of Finance and The legislature are new. Well, they are not new and in a recent decision by the Court of Jurisdiction, the City of San Diego was denied a similar petition for a Writ of Mandate.
The Court found the City Of San Diego failed on the very same issues and in the very same manner the City of 29 Palms is presently attempting to foist to the Court.
I wonder at what point will the City Council realize they do not have one chance in a million to win against the state based upon the arguments that hack Munoz has presented to the Court. Everyone of the issues he raised has been ruled upon in favor of the state in the scores of other cases that have gone before Department 34 of the Superior Court of the County of Sacramento.
Read how his arguments crumble in this recent Case No.:34-2013-80001410 City of San Diego v. Ana J. Matosantos
I think you will agree that San Diego brought up many of the very same issues. The Court ruled so decisively in denying those issues it is a fools errand to continue this folly.
So arrogant and brash has the City attorney been in his violations of law and ethics he risks not only the treasury of the city but his and others liberty and freedom. The obvious intent from reading the recent opposition brief by the Department of Finance that the continued prosecution of this Writ will lead the DOF actually asking for the Attorney General to investigate for criminal charges of City Officials and the Law Firm of Rutan and Tucker. Wouldn’t that be a hoot?
Instead of dreaming of Project Phoenix, those Councilors past and present and officials that had a direct hand in this possible Fraud against the State of California should be circling up their wagons with their own Legal representation, unrelated to Rutan and Tucker.
The next couple of weeks are going to be a real eye opener for those who thought we at Cactusthorns were out of touch. I personally will be planning an appointment to have my ass waxed so it will be baby soft, so that when upon the denying of the writ is made public, I can offer a big old cheek to the Council for placing their collective lips to it for a kiss.
