The “A Lister” could receive: air transportation or Private Jet service from major U. S. cities, hotel suites and accommodations, ground transportation, VIP tickets to the Derby, special V.I.P. guest invitations to the exclusive events,  Contact us ASAP with Celebrity bio for consideration.

Millionaires Row

Throughout the years of the Kentucky Derby, the race has had a special appeal to the celebrity set. The rich and famous that mingle among the Derby Day crowd add a unique dimension to the spectacle of the “Run for the Roses.”

VIP Access

One of the first celebrity sightings dates to 1877 when famed Polish actress Helena Modjeska attended the third running of the Kentucky Derby. In the 1945 book, Down the Stretch, it was noted that Modjeska was impressed by the Derby but even more charmed by the mint julep to which she was introduced by Churchill Downs founder M. Lewis Clark following the race.

Over the years, a stream of celebrities from film, music, sports, politics and wealth have been drawn to the Derby. On at least one occasion, a celebrity with a more notorious background was the talk of the Derby. The 15th renewal in 1889 brought bank and train robber Frank James to Louisville. The brother of famed outlaw Jesse James and a leader in their outlaw gang, Frank was on hand to watch Spokane take the victory over favored Proctor Knott.

Although most of the rich and famous that attend are guests of prominent ticket holders, the Derby has also attracted an impressive roster of celebrity racehorse owners. The group has found that the thrill of running their horses in the Kentucky Derby is as moving as any accomplishment in their professional careers.

During the 1990s this group of celebrity owners grew to include: musician MC Hammer, 1992 Dance Floor, 3rd; composer Burt Bacharach, 1994 Soul of the Matter, 5th, and 1995 Afternoon Deelites, 8th; music producer Berry Gordy, 1994 Powis Castle, 8th; film producer Albert Broccoli, 1994 Brocco, 4th; New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, 1997 Concerto, 9th; and former NBA and current University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino, 1998 Halory Hunter, 4th, and 2001 A P Valentine, 7th.

A direct descendant of England’s Epsom Derby, the Kentucky Derby has been attended on four separate occasions by British royalty. The first came in 1930, when Edward George Villiers Stanley, the 17th Earl of Derby and a representative of the family from whom the term Derby was derived, became the first member of the English nobility to attend. Prohibition was in effect at the time and Lord Derby expressed his disappointment in not being able to sample a mint julep. “You have a great many advantages I should like to copy for England,” Derby said, “but prohibition is not one of them.” Derby was followed in 1951 by the Duke of Windsor, who had renounced the British throne in 1936 so he could marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson.

The 100th running of the Kentucky Derby in 1974 brought Princess Margaret and her husband, Lord Snowdon. The most recent visit by British royalty came in 2007, when Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II attended with her husband, Prince Philip.

Eight U.S. Presidents have witnessed the Derby and marveled at the pageantry and spectacle of the famed event. Future President Harry S. Truman was reported as the first and was followed in 1952 by Lyndon Johnson who attended as a Texas senator. In 2000, future President George W. Bush, who would win the election that same year, was on hand for the 126th running of the Derby with his father former President George Herbert Walker Bush. Only Richard M. Nixon attended while serving in office. He had visited in 1968 as guest of Kentucky Governor Louie B. Nunn and commented that if he was elected President he would return to the 1969 Derby. That year also attracted two future presidents Gerald R. Ford and Ronald Reagan. No other President has witnessed more Derbys than Ford. Beginning in 1977, Ford and his wife Betty attended almost every Derby for 10 years as guests of longtime friend John Galbreath, a former Churchill chairman of the board. In 1983, for the 109th Derby, two past Presidents and one future president were in attendance. Ford was joined by Jimmy Carter, the Democrat who had defeated him in 1976, and then Vice President George Bush, who would win the 1988 presidential election. In 1999, Al Gore joined the list of vice presidents that attended the Derby. That list includes: 1931, Charles Curtis; 1937, John Nance Garner; and 1958 Alben Barkley.

GOAPELE

Yoshi’s- San Francisco

San Francisco CA 94115

“This spiritual love child of Sade and D’Angelo mixes sweet soul vocals, jazz funk instrumentation and hip hop rhythms by underground Bay Area beatmasters. Goapele can kick it in the streets as in the lounge.”

Rolling Stone

Goapele brings an infusion of fresh energy and a classic, yet new sound to R&B music with her sophomore set, Change It All.

The Oakland, California-based songstress broke onto the Bay Area music scene in 2001 with her ethereal EP, Closer, and the follow-up full length album, Even Closer. Released on her family-owned record company, Skyblaze Recordings, the album’s mix of soulful grooves and thought-provoking lyrics introduced the world to a multi-faceted artist and songwriter, known as much for her social and political activism as for her lush romantic ballads.

“I grew up,” Goapele explains, “inspired by a tradition of soulful singers like Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Bob Marley, and Miriam Makeba, people who created timeless music and positive change in the world. I’m also part of the hip hop generation, and my influences continue to grow, so my music has become a blend of many musical traditions.”

Critics from Rolling Stone, Billboard, Essence, Vibe, and a host of others, hailed the songstress as an emerging artist to watch and heralded Even Closer as an album that was ahead of its time. The inspiring title track, “Closer,” notched 1’s on radio playlists from San Francisco to LA to DC to Baton Rouge, and as of August, 2005, four years after its initial release, was 1 at the two largest urban stations in Detroit.

Goapele followed up the release of her album debut by hitting the road and taking her serene — yet inspiring — sound to the masses, both stateside and abroad. Time and again, the singer wowed sold-out crowds with her emotionally-powerful songs, energetic spirit, and electrifying shows.

While Goapele garnered the support of music critics and fans, a host of fellow musicians and celebrities–including The Roots, Talib Kweli, Magic Johnson, Prince and Stevie Wonder–came under the spell of her music, style and sensibility. “I’m very excited to get the support of artists I’ve long admired,” she says.

For her new album, Goapele returned to her Bay Area roots to craft an artistically challenging sophomore set inspired by her recent experiences both in and out of the industry. The album was recorded largely at her Skylight studios in Oakland with a combination of old friends Jeff Bhasker, Mike Tiger, and Amp Live, and fresh collaborators like the production team Sa-Ra Creative Partners (Jill Scott, Bilal), veteran producer Linda Perry (Pink, Christina Aguilera), Bay Area hip hop producer Bedrock (E-40, the Team) and fellow soulster Dwele.

“It was really important to me to work with the people who helped me with my first album,” Goapele says of her long-term and frequent collaborators. “We know where each other is coming from, so there’s already a strong foundation to create from. And we’ve all come along way since we made “Even Closer”. Jeff [Bhasker], for example, co-wrote and produced the title track of The Game’s album, ‘The Documentary,’ last year, so I was really excited to come back together in the studio with them and share our new skills and experience.”

The result is a collection of love songs and politically and socially inspired songs that remain true to Goapele’s firmly planted soul roots while allowing her to branch out in a number of exciting, new directions. Songs like the emotive “Darker Side Of The Moon” and “Love Me Right,” with its electro-pop funk, show Goapele taking aesthetic risks while staying true to her signature sound.

“What I am happy about was that I don’t feel like any of the collaborations were forced,” says Goapele. “They were connections that were already there, and we were just waiting for the right time to work together.”

Goapele collaborated with Linda Perry on “Darker Side Of The Moon,” a ballad that reflects her ability to travel far beyond the borders of traditional R&B while strengthening the core values of sweet soul music.

“I met Linda at one of my shows in LA,” says Goapele of the collaboration with Perry, “and we talked about the possibility of working together. Although I was a fan of her music, I really didn’t know how our styles would mesh, but I’m really proud of what we created together. ‘Darker Side’ was inspired by Pink Floyd, who I had recently become a fan of and had been a favorite of Linda’s for years.”

The granddaughter of German holocaust survivors and South African grandparents who lived through apartheid, Goapele knows the importance of giving back time, energy and resources to the community and the planet. “I’ve been involved in community organization since I was 10, so it’s naturally integrated into my music. One of the reasons I wanted to be a songwriter in the first place was so I could sing lyrics that I believed in and that come from my heart. I draw from my own experience and the experiences I’ve watched others go through. I want my music to truly represent me, instead of trying to fit stereotypes that women in this industry are encouraged to fit into.”

The title track, “Change It All,” started with a song idea,” says Goapele. “I was feeling disempowered and frustrated with the people who were elected in 2000, and then re-elected, and frustrated about the disappearing support for music and art and resources that are being taken away from our local communities in order to fund a war that many of us don’t believe in.”

In the spirit of Goapele’s interest in positive change, she and Skyblaze founded an online community that shares its name with her album. ChangeItAll.org presents Goapele’s musical message, highlights political and social change-makers, and provides a forum for Goapele’s fans and others to network and create ways to promote action, creativity, courage and positive growth for people and communities everywhere.

“In talking to the team at Skyblaze, we started thinking, ‘What if we used this opportunity to create a tool for other people to connect, ‘” she adds. “So, instead of looking at what’s wrong in the world, let’s look at what changes are already happening and use it as a way for people to organize around those things.”

For a singer whose name means ‘to move forward’ in Sitswana, a South African language, her new album, Change It All, proves that enlightened change can be a positive force in the world of music and beyond. Note: Goapele is pronounced Gwa-pa-lay.

TANK

Tank

Yoshi’s Oakland

Friday, April 22, and Sunday April 24, 2011 8:00 PM.

Yoshi’s Oakland
510 Embarcadero W
Oakland Ca 94607
Friday, April 22, 2011 and
Sunday, April 24, 2011
8:00 pm

Tank is one of the most recognizable names in modern R&B, known for vivid storytelling and sensual love songs. He’s an icon in the making, with four albums and eight Grammy nominations under his belt. He’s also a singer who carries the torch of masters like Marvin Gaye and Al Green, while redefining R&B for a new decade. For singer/songwriter/producer Tank—about to release his Atlantic Records debut Now or Never, his first album in three years, and the one he describes as his most confident yet—the secret is simple. He remains true to who he is, as a man and an artist.

“My music is the real me,” says Tank. “I’ll either live by that or I’ll die by that in this business, but I’ve got to be me.” He’s famous for sexy yet relatable love songs that are at once thoroughly modern and yet steeped in the sounds of classic soul. Though fans know and love Tank for smash hits like “Maybe I Deserve” and “Please Don’t Go,” they may be surprised to learn that he is also behind such chart-toppers as Rubben Studdard’s “Change Me” and Omarion’s “O.” What’s more, Tank served as an associate member of the hit-making production team, The Underdogs, with further credits including the smash soundtrack to the 2006 musical film adaptation of Dreamgirls (in which he also made a cameo). Since releasing his previous album Sex, Love, & Pain in 2007, Tank took a moment to step out of the spotlight, but not necessarily out of the studio. He formed the Los Angeles-based production company Song Dynasty, and began shaping the sound of modern R&B with songs for a diverse roster of artists including Keyshia Cole, Jennifer Hudson, Jamie Foxx, Chris Brown, and Keri Hilson. Though he has enjoyed crafting hits for these artists, Tank is ready to step into the spotlight yet again, and returns with an incredibly personal collection. “I put a lot of my personal business into my music because people relate to it. I sing based upon the things that I’ve been through. I don’t just sing about the pain, I sing about getting through it. Whether I’m singing about sex, relationships, or the occasional party, the songs are still about classic R&B themes.”

Poised to release his fourth studio album Now or Never, Tank is ready to share the intensely intimate themes his fans have come to love, even as he prepares to show an entirely new side of himself. “The sound of this new album is still the traditional R&B formula, but sonically it’s very current,” says Tank. His first single, “Sex Music,” perfectly illustrates his new sound. The high-energy track lives up to its name with a spacey, shuddering beat. Produced by Song Dynasty with Harvey Mason Jr. (Dreamgirls, Kelly Clarkson, Justin Timberlake), “Sex Music” is sure to appeal to die-hard Tank fans.

“We’re going to keep pressing forward with this R&B thing,” promises Tank. During the process of bringing Now or Never to life, he’s experimented with new technology and new collaborators, even as he explores the themes that have always moved him. “Emergency” is an emotional ballad with a sense of humor, comparing a woman’s desire to a four-alarm fire. “You Mean that Much” is a soaring, orchestral anthem. “Can I Make Love”, says Tank, “is self-explanatory… I’m known for having songs that give you an opportunity to not say much. All you need is a little eye contact, and it’s on.”

These timeless songs of love, lust, and loss take cinematic tone in the hands of Tank, as he crafts imagery that is uniquely tangible and real. Perhaps it’s his new love of acting that has deepened his storytelling. Tank recently graced the screen in The Preacher’s Kid, and he has been studying acting, though he promises that music will continue to be his first love. “We have to take this stand now because R&B is slowly becoming a lost art,” explains Tank. “R&B music is the thing that connects people.” Though he loves a fantasy party scene as much as any man, Tank writes about the real, everyday emotions and situations that people relate to because, as he says, “we’re meant to move people with this music, and I want to be part of that movement.”

It’s been an incredible journey since Tank was an undiscovered artist with a dream, penning “Maybe I Deserve” in the basement of his mother’s Maryland home, on “an MPC and two keyboards.” The single would go on to dominate urban radio in 2001, when Tank released his gold-certified debut album Force of Nature. Though he has enjoyed remarkable successes throughout his career, Tank considers Now or Never the album when “it all came together.” The title doesn’t just refer to the urgency he feels within R&B as a whole, but also the growth he’s done over the years as an artist. Now re-emerging with a new team and a renewed confidence in his music, Tank is ready to have these songs heard.

“Everything I’ve been through has prepared me for this moment right now. I’ve got a new deal, new energy and new people around who are just as excited about the album as I am. Everything I’ve learned over the years as a producer, writer and artist have gone into Now or Never.”

Moving Target: Extended Intimate Playdate Series

Ms. Lauryn Hill

Hot 8 Brass Band

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

  • The Warfield
  • 982 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94102
  • Show time: 9:00pm

Ms. Lauryn Hill- http://www.lauryn-hill.com/
Hot 8 Brass Band- http://www.hot8brassband.com/Site/Home.html

The legendary GRAMMY Award winning MC, vocalist, producer and songwriter, Ms. Lauryn Hill, has announced dates for her Moving Target: Extended Intimate Playdate Series. The series will kick off in Orlando, FL on March 16thand hit 12 cities across the country including sets at Miami’s Jazz in the Gardens Festival on March 19th, this year’s Coachella Music and Arts Festival on April 15th and then wrapping at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on May 7th (full routing below). More dates to be announced in the coming weeks.

In addition, Ms. Hill has also announced the creation of @MsHillMvngTrgt on Twitter as the definitive source for news, highlights and updates for the Moving Target Series as well as a place for her to communicate directly with her supporters. Of these playdates Ms. Hill says, “One of the benefits of playing venues smaller than the ones I’m used to allows me the opportunity to not only reconnect with my supporters but to expose them to a portion of the musical journey I’ve been on which the world for the most part has not had access to. I’ve never shied away from being musically adventurous, nor am I known for being a lightweight when it comes to lyrical content or musical exploration. These more intimate playdates afford me the time to perform for listeners who haven’t heard from me over the past several years or have been misinformed by the inaccuracies in home media coverage, many of which I might add, I find very amusing. Getting back out there to perform is a lot like resuming a strenuous sport after having been away from it for a while, but eventually the muscle-memory kicks in and each day brings progressive strength. It\’s an exciting and REAL process which these audiences will get to witness.”

Ms. Hill recently ended a set of dates last month playing venues predominantly on the Eastern half of the country, which included performances at the Sundance Festival in Park City Utah and an exclusive party held during Fashion Week celebrating the opening of Alexander Wang’s New York City Flagship store. Ms. Hill has been performing an innovative set list of classic material, evolved but faithful to the rigor, soulfulness and power of the original music from her iconic and groundbreaking solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill as well as classic Fugee numbers and a few covers honoring some of the music that Ms. Hill grew up influenced by.

About Ms. Lauryn Hill:
Cited as one of the greatest female MCs of all time, Ms. Lauryn Hills prolific rhymes and powerful\r\nvoice catapulted her into the public eye as a member of the Fugees, whose 1996 album The Score was certified six times platinum and took home two GRAMMY Awards for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal and Best Rap Album. In 1998, Ms. Hill established herself as a creative force as a solo artist with her now classic debut The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The iconic work earned Ms. Hill a record-setting ten GRAMMY Award nominations, five of which she took home, including Best New Artist and Album of the Year. The album was also nominated in several categories at the NAACP Image Awards, including Outstanding Female Artist, Outstanding Album, and Outstanding Song, where she was nominated for both Doo Wop (That Thing) and A Rose Is Still A Rose. The album has appeared on countless Best Of lists, including Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, SPINs Top 100 Albums of the Last 20 Years, Vibes 150 Albums That Define the Vibe Era, and the Associated Press 10 Best Albums of the 1990s. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill has sold 8 million copies worldwide. In 2002, she released MTV Unplugged No 2.0, a live album of her 2001 performance on MTV Unplugged, which was certified platinum four weeks after its release. Ms. Hill has also been recognized for her humanitarian efforts, receiving an Essence Award for her work including the 1996 founding the Refugee Project.

Accounting Career Awareness Program (ACAP)

See my note below regarding ACAP and forward to any interested high school students of color. If you would like to set up a presentation at your high school – let me know.

I wanted to personal reach out to you asking for your assistance in spreading the word to parents of high-school students, for a summer program. Many of you who know me know that I have worked with the Accounting Career Awareness Program for 10+ years now. This program, affectionately known as ACAP, is a career development program for high school students from under-represented ethnic groups aimed at exposing them to Accounting and other business professions.

ACAP offers a one-week summer residency program at UC Berkeley which introduces the students to accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, economics and management through a carefully tailored curriculum involving guest lecturers from industry and academia. Students are actively involved in the week’s activities which include classroom lectures, field trips, and mentoring from working business professionals.

All ACAP participants receive scholarships covering the total cost of tuition, books, supplies, transportation, and room and board. (In other words everything is FREE for the student/parents) The week culminates with a banquet for sponsors, participants and their parents or guardians.

The residency program this year will be held from July 17-22, 2011 on the California University of Berkeley Campus.

If you can please forward this information to ALL who may be in need or have in interest in the Accounting Career Awareness Program. In 1996 I too was a student of ACAP, and it has since changed my life forever! This is a wonderful experience to be taking advantage of.

Go to web site for more info: www.acapsfbayarea.org (and applications).

Application Deadline is April 15th.

Resigning Oakland City Attorney Wants OUT!!! Can’t Dodge Fraud, Corruption Charges!
    Crooked, soon to be former crooked Oakland City Attorney John Russo, being forced to resign from a constant three year barrage of fact laden reports of fraud and corruption by Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim, is one of three finalists for the Alameda city manager position sources have confirmed. You can view the 2009 video of
 Oakland City Attorney John Russo’s Political Suicide- Must Resign at:
    For years Russo has been avoiding criminal and civil charges of extrinsic fraud and corruption, among others in the al-Hakim insurance case, has been dodging rumors for weeks that he is feuding with new Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and looking for ways to leave his post. Now, however, it turns out that at least part of that rumor is true: Russo applied for the Alameda job after the recruitment period opened Feb. 1. Alameda City Council interviewed six candidates and unanimously selected three finalists during a closed-door session Feb. 19. The candidates will be reviewed by three advisory panels that will help the council make its final decision.
    Russo, whose annual salary in Oakland is about $214,000, would probably get a pay raise. Alameda’s most recent interim and acting city managers made about $250,000, including benefits, and that could go up. The job in Alameda would thrust Russo into the contentious issue of developing the former Alameda Naval Air Station, now known as Alameda Point. The property was expected to be a boon to the city after the base closed in 1997, but it has languished unused and remains federal property. The new city manager in Alameda would also have to hire both a police and fire chief, positions currently being held down on an interim basis.
Russo, was a contributor to Marie Gilmore’s mayoral campaign and also the city council campaign of Councilwoman Lena Tam, whose innocence he proclaimed at a fundraiser for Tam shortly after she was accused of leaking confidential information to then-Alameda Point developer SunCal and Alameda’s firefighters. He donated $1,750 in the last election to a new council majority of Gilmore and council members Lena Tam and Rob Bonta according to campaign finance records. The three have the power to select the next city attorney.

 

Oakland City Attorney Fraud, Solicitation Perjurious Testimony in Affidavits for Gang Injunction!
 
    The leak of information on Oakland City Attorney John Russo’s extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony and solicitation of perjurious testimony in witness affidavits for the Oakland Gang Injunction litigation is turning into a flood as there appears to be truth in the allegation. It has been rumored that witnesses complained that the affidavits were prepared for their signature without their approval containing inaccurate information, misleading facts, and mis-characterizing statements that were maliciously, willfully and intentionally false. Witness could not change the affidavit and felt they were slighted and perhaps retaliated against when they complained about it. There were other complaints about Russo’s tactics in recent matters as well.
The shyster City Attorney was involved in fabricating and planted that fabricated evidence in the al-Hakim insurance case file, gave the case file to the defendants for nearly a year, and then gave the altered case file to a judge for trial without notifying the court!
al-Hakim filed a complaint with Congresswoman Barbara Lee, State Assemblyman Sandre Swanson, Alameda County Supervisor Kieth Carson, Oakland California Mayor Ron Dellums, Oakland City Administrator Dan Lindheim, Oakland City Auditor Courtney Ruby, Oakland City Councilpersons Desley Brooks and Larry Reid’s offices against Oakland City Attorney John Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton- current President of the National Bar Association, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold, Michele Abney, Eliada Perez; former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams; former Oakland City employee Pat Smith; Stephan Barber and others of the law firm Ropers, Majeski; Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Annette Bening’s brother Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening; for constructing fraudulent fabricated evidence in 1999 and planting that evidence favorable to the defendants in the case files SIX years AFTER the case was closed; engaged in spoliation of remaining evidence in the court files from 1991; and fostered witness testimony based on this planted evidence in the al-Hakim v CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case that was created thru EXTRINSIC FRAUD with accompanying testimony procured thru admitted suborned and solicited perjurious acts by John Russo and others, they e
ngaged in actions to destroy the litigation of al-Hakim’s legal case; they engaged in actions to coverup their unlawful acts.

    This comes on the heels of a very embarrassing, very public spat with new Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and Russo taking personally abusive verbal shots at each other with Russo scorning the mayor for what he called a risky legal relationship with another attorney and Quan firing back at Russo for releasing his legal advice to the media before discussing it with her.

“Russo Tends to Attack by Press Release” Oakland Mayor Jean Quan
    “The problem is that John Russo tends to attack by press release,” Quan said, and complained that he issued his letter while she was still in Washington, D.C., where she attended U.S. Conference of Mayors meetings and also met with White House officials.
Quan said Russo had created a conflict of interest by releasing his advice to the media when he did. “As the City Attorney giving advice to the Mayor, he has the duty of confidentiality and the duty of loyalty to his client. He broke that confidentiality by his actions,” Quan said in a written statement. “This is exactly why the Mayor’s Office and the City Council Offices have considered seeking independent, outside counsel. The City Attorney is the City’s only attorney,” Russo wrote in the letter he released.
Quan denied sharing any confidential city information with an attorney and friend who has been advising her, saying City Attorney John Russo’s suggestion that she may be spilling secrets was “frankly, insulting.”
That claim is false according to him, as
Russo did not bring his concerns to Quan privately before alerting the media — Russo argued in a letter he sent to Quan, other city leaders and local media that the city attorney is the mayor’s only permissible attorney, so any information Quan shares with anyone other than Russo and those in his office — is not protected and can be subpoenaed, threatening the city’s standing in a host of legal scenarios and taking on another attorney, especially one connected to a fight against the city, is breaking the City Charter and creates a conflict of interest.
“We have a city attorney who is elected and so sometimes has his own political agenda,” Quan said.
“I’m caught in the middle, and I’m sorry about that.”
“This is a uniquely obnoxious violation of the charter because he’s in the middle of this,” Russo said. “I should be able to brief (Quan) on the strengths and weaknesses of our cases. If she’s going to turn around and give that to our opponents, how am I supposed to do my job?” “What the mayor has done here,” Russo added, “is put my office in a very awkward position where we’re not sure we can give confidential information to Mayor Quan. You should never be in that position with the CEO of the corporation.” “Violation of the City Charter is a crime,” Russo wrote in closing. “It is now incumbent on you to uphold your oath to defend the Charter.”
Quan, a longtime adversary of Russo from his days on the Council, feels concerned as the public see’s Russo has overstepped his boundary by pursuing the injunction without endorsement from the city council or the mayor in his continuing quest to be the De-Facto mayor. There is a question about what is the authority of the city attorney to bring these cases without the authorization of city council and the Mayor.”

    Russo declined to sign a City Council ordinance that would have set regulations for large-scale pot growing. Russo, who supports legalization of marijuana, refused to represent the council on the issue after the Alameda County district attorney and the U.S. Attorney’s Office each sent letters to the city saying the ordinance is illegal. In the aftermath, Quan and council members Rebecca Kaplan, Desley Brooks and Nancy Nadel each criticized Russo, saying he baited federal rebuke by asking for legal advice. His office says he acted at the council’s direction

al-Hakim, Marshawn Lynch and Leon Powe to Help Poor, Under Served Youth

al-Hakim has mobilized attorney’s to represent these poor, under served youth and secured ALL-Americans, NFL All-Pro, NBA World Champions, North Oakland residents, Oakland Tech High School and U. C. Berkeley classmates Marshawn Lynch and Leon Powe along with several native Oakland celebrities to join national celebrities in this fight! Through the collaboration of the individuals, Powe’s “Fresh Start Oakland”, Lynch’s Fam1ly F1rst”, the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation, and others, we will provide the much needed alternatives to these profiled youth to succeed in life and not be eliminated from it because some developers want their families property and them out the neighborhood.

Oakland Marijuana Ordinance
There’s also a marijuana ordinance in front of city council that is endorsed by “Johnny Potty” Russo. He picked up that handle because of his penchant for doing video interviews in the restroom “potty” with another man, not to mention the weed endorsement. Does the citizens of Oakland really want a crooked City Attorney who drives around with his kids in the car without their seat belts on, wants to legalize smoking weed and gives video interviews in the bathroom with another man? The unfortunate part about this episode is Mayor Quan’s adviser has also been busted for marijuana so everything is up in smoke!
    A court hearing that could result in the implementation of the injunction is scheduled for February 16, 2011 before admitted and convicted liar, the embattled Judge Robert Freedman

Judge Robert Freedman’s Misconduct Warranted His Removal from Office
    al-Hakim filed a formal complaint on April 11, 2008 and April 14, 2008 with both the Judicial Council and Superior Court against Judge Tigar for his attempt at provoking al-Hakim at a side bar during trial. al-Hakim received a one sentence response dated September 26, 2008 from Victoria Henley stating that “your submission does not provide a basis for commission proceedings”. al-Hakim received a letter dated April 15, 2008 from then Presiding Judge Yolanda Northridge acknowledging receipt of the complaint referring the matter to the Supervising Judge, Robert Freedman for review but has gotten no response as promised.
No one should be surprised because Judge Freedman has had his own well documented problems with honesty by willfully and intentionally filing false, perjurious and deceiving documents and affidavits regrading the timeliness in the administration of his duties in order to get paid and was issued a public reprimand.
In June 2007 The Commission on Judicial Performance publicly censured Alameda Superior Court
Judge Robert J. Freedman for violating rules of conduct by failing to decide cases on time and falsely swearing that he was keeping up with time limits.
Judge Freedman’s misconduct was of such gravity as to warrant his removal from office, the commission said, but the presence of mitigating evidence justified reducing the punishment to a “severe public censure.” You can read and/or download the article on Judge Freeman’s Censure at: http://www.box.net/shared/5n0tt72rbt
The commission adopted factual findings made by a panel of special masters, who found by clear and convincing evidence that Freedman delayed rulings in 21 of the 23 cases over which he was charged in a notice of formal proceedings last May.
It also agreed with the panel that Freedman, as accused in the notice, regularly signed and submitted false salary affidavits to the county during times when he was aware his rulings were overdue. He has a checkered past in al-Hakim’s case as well.
At one hearing in that matter he openly stated bias, prejudice, voiced a fixed opinion of
al-Hakim and having an improper ex-parte communications regarding
al-Hakim and his case while using such information to hold al-Hakim to a higher legal standard than that of the opposing counsel in the case as a guise for sanctioning al-Hakim for it. al-Hakim is convinced and Freedman’s three years of delay demonstrate that he will not seriously review nor is he capable of impartially or fairly judging this matter, even for review. 

Russo’s Interest in Real Estate Firm
Is there any truth to the allegation that Russo has an interest in a real estate firm? It is widely acknowledged that the Gang Injunctions are nothing but another tool for developers to continue exercising gentrification of the Black/Latino Communities unopposed because of the apathy and lack of leadership in defending their rights from the so-called leaders! Where are the national groups that alleges to stand for Civil Rights when the minority communities are being raped and “Okey Doaked” by the “white liberal” defenders of the public trust?
 
 The Merits of The Gang Injunction
    The University of California, Berkeley – School of Law’s Center for Criminal Justice cites nationwide statistics that overwhelming prove Gang Injunctions are ineffective in all jurisdictions.
The following are but a few reasons cited by the legal community on why Russo’s proposed injunction should not be granted:
·        At a time when California’s budget is in a record crisis, does Oakland have resources to waste on an injunction that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to enforce yet will not bring about positive crime reduction results?
·        The injunction would increase the distance between police and communities, does not focus on rehabilitation, reasons why youth join gangs, jobs or education which youth of our state so desperately need. Study after study has shown that rehabilitation is over ninety percent effective for this age group.
·        A federal judge who is monitoring Oakland police reforms heavily criticized the police department at a hearing and <a href=”http://www.insidebayarea.com/ci_16105984?IADID=Search-www.insidebayarea.com-www.insidebayarea.com“>threatened to take it over, the Tribune reported. Judge Thelton Henderson, who is monitoring the OPD because of the Riders scandal, threatened to put the department in “receivership.” If that were to happen, the judge would appoint an overseer who would have power over Oakland Police Chief Anthony Batts. The judge is upset that the Oakland Police Department has still not instituted the police misconduct reforms that it agreed to several years ago. A Legal Settlement is a contract – breach of which by OPD opens the city up to even more money damages.
·        In light of the above, if Russo has his way, the police will undeservedly regain power; usurping Federal power, creating a “Fiefdom” for Russo. A failed police department does not deserve to continue down a path of destruction – that is why the Federal Government stepped in to begin with. If the Rider’s Settlement is not given effect – the entire trial was for naught -yet another waste of taxpayer dollars.
·        The named defendants in the injunction are guilty until proven innocent. This turns the US Constitution upside down. An injunction is simply not necessary because Police need only a reasonable suspicion to stop and frisk a suspect – not the higher level of probable cause. Reasonable suspicion and closer ties to the community is what is needed to bring about crime reduction and community building. An injunction is lazy police work; overkill – unnecessary and has a counter-effective result by tearing down the very community it is supposedly there to clean up.
·        The injunction will not result in safer streets but creates unfettered power in John Russo’s office. Further, an injunction opens the communities up to profit mongers such as real estate developers like John Russo’s family business owners. At a time when Oaklanders are losing their homes to foreclosure at record numbers, their interests rather than big business should be put first.
 
  D. A. & Oakland City Attorney Fraud Victim Forcibly Removed from Courthouse Building Threatened With Arrest

 
    The following letter is from Alameda County District Attorney and Oakland City Attorney fraud victim Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim to an over 40 year personal friend and family client, the Honorable Judge Leo Dorado regarding an encounter with District Attorney henchman Bob Connor whom forcibly removed al-Hakim from the Rene Davidson Courthouse building and threatened to arrest al-Hakim if he ever returned. Connor is very well known to both parties.

    al-Hakim has filed a formal complaint against the Alameda County District Attorney office and the City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave, on June 7, 2010. After several conversations with the Alameda County District Attorney office, District Attorney Nancy O’Malley assigned the case to Assistant District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy. After his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, Dunleavy decided to assign the case for investigation. You can read more on the filing of the complaint and the District Attorney Investigates City Attorneys John Russo, Jayne Williams, Meyers Nave Corruption Complaint.pdf
http://www.box.net/shared/sjgi7ynhgh 

al-Hakim also filed the complaint with Oakland City Auditor Courtney Rudy, long rumored to be Russo’s love interest, only to have her refuse to investigate  the complaint, though she is compelled to do so by the passing of Russo’s “Oakland ROAR” anti-corruption program. The program was alleged to revive the confidence of the citizens of Oakland in the City Administrators. She received the 200 page complaint with audio CD as witnessed by the voice mail message left for al-Hakim by her assistant Joe Macaluso.

    al-Hakim will petition President Obama and U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder to expand the initial investigation of a complaint filed in 2005 by demanding a change in this criminal, tactical policy of isolation, victimization, criminalization and the attempted entrapment of the victim, including the use of government initiated, Nixon era “White House Plumbers” and CoIntelpro style dirty tricks! This civil conspiracy has brought into play County and Sate Agencies to further it’s continued investigation of al-Hakim whom the defense admitted in 1998 has been surveilled for years and continues today with the compromising of many agents and informants covers due to their sloppiness. These actions of Dunleavy, and Connor are just the latest example of the continuing efforts of law enforcement to silence and eliminate al-Hakim as their adversary when he has caught and exposed them as they have been entrapped in their own crimes!

 

After the encounter with Connor, al-Hakim spoke with District Attorney Matt Golde and Dorado regarding his treatment and called O’Malley to voice his extreme concern wherein he received a return call from Dunleavy. The recorded conversation with Dunleavy regarding the encounter with Connor and the investigation can be listened to and/or downloaded  at:
http://www.box.net/shared/x46rvjorhj 

Here’s Dunleavy’s second call stating the he will speak with the Department of Child Support Services attorney that had to admit in court several times that they and the D. A.’s office had committed fraud, embezzlement, and theft against al-Hakim and his family. When al-Hakim refused to pay for the D. A.’s fraud, they attempted to extort the money from him by suspending his drivers license and revoking his passport!

    After no response from the D. A.’s office, the following letter of today ensued.

FROM:     Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim
DATE:     December 27, 2010
RE:         District Attorney Forcibly Removing Me from Courthouse Building, Threatened with Arrest if Returned and Response to Formal Complaint Served and Filed June 7, 2010 

Dear Judge Dorado, 

First, let me say “Happy Holidays” to you and the family! I know that everyone must be doing great, and since the kids are not getting any younger, I guess you and I can not be 21 any longer! What’s this I hear about you having hip replacement and moving to Juvenile Court? We have some catching up to do, which was part of the reason I was coming to see you when I was removed from the courthouse building! 

I have awaited your response to our last conversation and the results of your inquiry into the District Attorney’s actions wherein hopefully we could meeting to discuss the above very serious concerns. 

It is unfathomable that such a thing could happen in today’s highly charged racial, political, and law enforcement versus community interactive environment, especially in Oakland and Alameda County where deadly force seems to be the rule rather than the exception. We have also discussed my previous interaction with officer Bob Connor during my Oakland Police Burglary case which you are aware of and know that he is not someone I trust or would interact with in any manner. He clearly tried to put me in harms way where I could/would have been killed! I made it clear then that I never intended to speak or have any contact with him ever again in life. 

To allow the D. A.‘s office to handle me and my complaint in such a Gestapo fashion and to use you as a ruse is unacceptable, needs to be investigated, the responsible parties held accountable and punished. I have yet to receive any response from Nancy O’Malley.     Clearly something must be done as I have waited for you to get back to me to move this process forward. There is no circumstance or law that can justify this use of force, intimidation, and threat of imprisonment under the guise and color of law!. You know that I will not allow this continuing injustice to go on unnoticed so, what time is best for you since I want to meet as soon as possible! 

We are all very busy, and especially this time of year, but I have been speaking to the D. A.’s office about this matter since June of this year with the above results. The matter of the fraud and corruption committed by the District Attorney and Oakland City Attorney and I are not going to magically disappear so let’s address it and move on. 

I have litigation that was to be filed in November the day of my being forcibly removed from the court house and threatened with arrest if I returned. I was unable to complete that filing, wherein the D. A.’s office has compromised these suits and this issue also must be corrected ASAP! 

Please respond with a time ASAP and I will accommodate that time and it can be after working hours or the weekend, if it’s best for you. We have some catching up to do anyway. 

Thank you and I welcome and look forward to your immediate response with the furthering of the litigation and resolution of this ongoing case. 

Respectfully, 

Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim

    al-Hakim has over 70,000 signatures and implores everyone to click on any one of the links and sign the Petition To The Honorables President Barack Obama and United States Attorney General Eric Holder to raise it’s investigation of corruption involving Attorney General Jerry Brown, Oakland City Attorney John Russo, former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams, former District Attorney Tom Orloff, and current District Attorney Nancy E. O’Malley.

Oakland City Attorney Fraud, Solicitation Perjurious Testimony in Affidavits for Gang Injunction!

al-Hakim and having an improper ex-parte communications regarding al-Hakim and his case while using such information to hold al-Hakim to a higher legal standard than that of the opposing counsel in the case as a guise for sanctioning al-Hakim for it. al-Hakim is convinced and Freedman’s three years of delay demonstrate that he will not seriously review nor is he capable of impartially or fairly judging this matter, even for review. 

Russo’s Interest in Real Estate Firm
Is there any truth to the allegation that Russo has an interest in a real estate firm? It is widely acknowledged that the Gang Injunctions are nothing but another tool for developers to continue exer
cising gentrification of the Black/Latino Communities unopposed because of the apathy and lack of leadership in defending their rights from the so-called leaders! Where are the national groups that alleges to stand for Civil Rights when the minority communities are being raped and “Okey Doaked” by the “white liberal” defenders of the public trust?

The Merits of The Gang Injunction
    The University of California, Berkeley – School of Law’s Center for Criminal Justice cites nationwide statistics that overwhelming prove Gang Injunctions are ineffective in all jurisdictions.
The following are but a few reasons cited by the legal community on why Russo’s proposed injunction should not be granted:
·        At a time when California’s budget is in a record crisis, does Oakland have resources to waste on an injunction that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to enforce yet will not bring about positive crime reduction results?
·        The injunction would increase the distance between police and communities, does not focus on rehabilitation, reasons why youth join gangs, jobs or education which youth of our state so desperately need. Study after study has shown that rehabilitation is over ninety percent effective for this age group.
·        A federal judge who is monitoring Oakland police reforms heavily criticized the police department at a hearing and threatened to take it over, the Tribune reported. Judge Thelton Henderson, who is monitoring the OPD because of the Riders scandal, threatened to put the department in “receivership.” If that were to happen, the judge would appoint an overseer who would have power over Oakland Police Chief Anthony Batts. The judge is upset that the Oakland Police Department has still not instituted the police misconduct reforms that it agreed to several years ago. A Legal Settlement is a contract – breach of which by OPD opens the city up to even more money damages.
·        In light of the above, if Russo has his way, the police will undeservedly regain power; usurping Federal power, creating a “Fiefdom” for Russo. A failed police department does not deserve to continue down a path of destruction – that is why the Federal Government stepped in to begin with. If the Rider’s Settlement is not given effect – the entire trial was for naught -yet another waste of taxpayer dollars.
·        The named defendants in the injunction are guilty until proven innocent. This turns the US Constitution upside down. An injunction is simply not necessary because Police need only a reasonable suspicion to stop and frisk a suspect – not the higher level of probable cause. Reasonable suspicion and closer ties to the community is what is needed to bring about crime reduction and community building. An injunction is lazy police work; overkill – unnecessary and has a counter-effective result by tearing down the very community it is supposedly there to clean up.
·        The injunction will not result in safer streets but creates unfettered power in John Russo’s office. Further, an injunction opens the communities up to profit mongers such as real estate developers like John Russo’s family business owners. At a time when Oaklanders are losing their homes to foreclosure at record numbers, their interests rather than big business should be put first.
 
 D. A. & Oakland City Attorney Fraud Victim Forcibly Removed from Courthouse Building Threatened With Arrest

    The following letter is from Alameda County District Attorney and Oakland City Attorney fraud victim Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim to an over 40 year personal friend and family client, the Honorable Judge Leo Dorado regarding an encounter with District Attorney henchman Bob Connor whom forcibly removed al-Hakim from the Rene Davidson Courthouse building and threatened to arrest al-Hakim if he ever returned. Connor is very well known to both parties.

    al-Hakim has filed a formal complaint against the Alameda County District Attorney office and the City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave, on June 7, 2010. After several conversations with the Alameda County District Attorney office, District Attorney Nancy O’Malley assigned the case to Assistant District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy. After his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, Dunleavy decided to assign the case for inves
tigation.

http://www.box.net/shared/sjgi7ynhgh
 

al-Hakim also filed the complaint with Oakland City Auditor Courtney Rudy, long rumored to be Russo’s love interest, only to have her refuse to investigate  the complaint, though she is compelled to do so by the passing of Russo’s “Oakland ROAR” anti-corruption program. The program was alleged to revive the confidence of the citizens of Oakland in the City Administrators. She received the 200 page complaint with audio CD as witnessed by the voice mail message left for al-Hakim by her assistant Joe Macaluso. You can view, listen to, and/or download the letters to Ruby and Macaluso’s voice mail here:

    al-Hakim will petition President Obama and U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder to expand the initial investigation of a complaint filed in 2005 by demanding a change in this criminal, tactical policy of isolation, victimization, criminalization and the attempted entrapment of the victim, including the use of government initiated, Nixon era “White House Plumbers” and CoIntelpro style dirty tricks! This civil conspiracy has brought into play County and Sate Agencies to further it’s continued investigation of al-Hakim whom the defense admitted in 1998 has been surveilled for years and continues today with the compromising of many agents and informants covers due to their sloppiness. These actions of Dunleavy, and Connor are just the latest example of the continuing efforts of law enforcement to silence and eliminate al-Hakim as their adversary when he has caught and exposed them as they have been entrapped in their own crimes!

 

After the encounter with Connor, al-Hakim spoke with District Attorney Matt Golde and Dorado regarding his treatment and called O’Malley to voice his extreme concern wherein he received a return call from Dunleavy. The recorded conversation with Dunleavy regarding the encounter with Connor and the investigation can be listened to and/or downloaded  at:
http://www.box.net/shared/x46rvjorhj
 

Here’s Dunleavy’s second call stating the he will speak with the Department of Child Support Services attorney that had to admit in court several times that they and the D. A.’s office had committed fraud, embezzlement, and theft against al-Hakim and his family. When al-Hakim refused to pay for the D. A.’s fraud, they attempted to extort the money from him by suspending his drivers license and revoking his passport!

    After no response from the D. A.’s office, the following letter of today ensued.

FROM:     Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim
DATE:     December 27, 2010
RE:         District Attorney Forcibly Removing Me from Courthouse Building, Threatened with Arrest if Returned and Response to Formal Complaint Served and Filed June 7, 2010 

Dear Judge Dorado, 

First, let me say “Happy Holidays” to you and the family! I know that everyone must be doing great, and since the kids are not getting any younger, I guess you and I can not be 21 any longer! What’s this I hear about you having hip replacement and moving to Juvenile Court? We have some catching up to do, which was part of the reason I was coming to see you when I was removed from the courthouse building! 

I have awaited your response to our last conversation and the results of your inquiry into the District Attorney’s actions wherein hopefully we could meeting to discuss the above very serious concerns. 

It is unfathomable that such a thing could happen in today’s highly charged racial, political, and law enforcement versus community interactive environment, especially in Oakland and Alameda County where deadly force seems to be the rule rather than the exception. We have also discussed my previous interaction with officer Bob Connor during my Oakland Police Burglary case which you are aware of and know that he is not someone I trust or would interact with in any manner. He clearly tried to put me in harms way where I could/would have been killed! I made it clear then that I never intended to speak or have any contact with him ever again in life. 

To allow the D. A.‘s office to handle me and my complaint in such a Gestapo fashion and to use you as a ruse is unacceptable, needs to be investigated, the responsible parties held accountable and punished. I have yet to receive any response from Nancy O’Malley.     Clearly something must be done as I have waited for you to get back to me to move this process forward. There is no circumstance or law that can justify this use of force, intimidation, and threat of imprisonment under the guise and color of law!. You know that I will not allow this continuing injustice to go on unnoticed so, what time is best for you since I want to meet as soon as possible! 

We are all very busy, and especially this time of year, but I have been speaking to the D. A.’s office about this matter since June of this year with the above results. The matter of the fraud and corruption committed by the District Attorney and Oakland City Attorney and I are not going to magically disappear so let’s address it and move on. 

I have litigation that was to be filed in November the day of my being forcibly removed from the court house and threatened with arrest if I returned. I was unable to complete that filing, wherein the D. A.’s office has compromised these suits and this issue also must be corrected ASAP! 

Please respond with a time ASAP and I will accommodate that time and it can be after working hours or the weekend, if it’s best for you. We have some catching up to do anyway. 

Thank you and I welcome and look forward to your immediate response with the furthering of the litigation and resolution of this ongoing case. 

Respectfully, 

Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim

    al-Hakim has over 70,000 signatures and implores everyone to click on any one of the links and sign the Petition To The Honorables President Barack Obama and United States Attorney General Eric Holder to raise it’s investigation of corruption involving Attorney General Jerry Brown, Oakland City Attorney John Russo, former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams, former District Attorney Tom Orloff, and current District Attorney Nancy E. O’Malley.
