Los Angeles, CA: Hispanic gang specialist, retired L.A. Sheriffs Sgt. Richard Valdemar told Full Disclosure Network™ “It is my duty as a Hispanic to talk about this (the illegal immigration issue) because you cannot, you would be called a racist.” In a six minute video preview of part four of a four part Special Series of interviews, Valdemar describes what it was like to work for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for 33 years while having to deal with legal and illegal Mexican immigrants in a city that has become known as “the illegal immigration capitol of the nation”.

Part 3 and 4 of the series to be featured on L. A. Cable Channel 36 this Sunday, Nov. 26th 8-9 p.m. and Monday, Nov. 27th 4-5 p.m. The preview video is to be featured on the Internet 24/7 and the full programs will run on 43 cable television systems, as part the Full Disclosure Network’s™ regular programming. The interview is conducted by Emmy Award winning host Leslie Dutton.

Sgt. Valdemar (ret) makes the following points in this Part-four of the Special Series:

  • Special Order 40 was the name of the LAPD policy not to report illegal aliens to Federal immigration authorities, the L.A. County Sheriff’s policy was similar
  • Illegals stay loyal to Mexico: Years ago illegal aliens who stayed in the country and made it their home, became loyal to the United States; now he says “they stay loyal to Mexico and they hate us.”
  • Victims vs Villains: While American law enforcement officers are considered the villains, the illegals are considered victims of the “coyotes” the human smugglers who often rob, rape and abuse them.
  • Minutemen are not racist: The Minuteman movement came about to discourage illegal border crossings. They are not racists, not Nazis, not whacko, they are level headed citizens, including Hispanics and even little old ladies.
  • Illegal Immigration has always been associated with crime, gangs and drugs.
  • NAFTA opened the door (borders) to drug cartels and corruption of our entire system, including political campaigns, law enforcement, etc.
  • Drug Busts Corrupt Law Enforcement: When drug money is seized in the huge quantities, the money goes to the law enforcement agency but the drugs go back out on the street.
  • Illegal Immigration Corrupts the System: When local and federal law enforcement turns their head, when employers and unions conspire to hire under the table to give lower wages and no benefits they exploit the workers and disregard the laws that were made to be enforced.
  • Multinational Banking policies undermine American values: The World Bank, the Bank of America and others don’t care about our nation’s sovereignty, they have a stranglehold on our economy and now routinely charge 24-28 percent interest when the crime of “Usury” used to be enforced when anyone charged more than ten percent interest. Check cashing policies penalize citizens and money transfers are luring illegal immigrants to come here to use our system.
  • Can We Stop the Decline of the United States? Sgt. Valdemar says Mexico is sending their problem to the U.S. demanding open borders. He says mass amnesty is not an option but points out that having been trained to be a "radical" activist in the Los Angeles Schools, he learned it all starts in the community. He suggests we can return to middle ground, stop corruption, evil and open borders "if we each start by changing our own community."

VOTERS FOOLED BY BOGUS BONDS?: Internet Video News Blog (9 min)

Los Angeles, CA: Were California voters fooled by the $40 billion in infrastructure bonds they approved in the November 2006 election, because there as was no organized opposition to the massive ballot proposals?

The shocking truth about the historic campaign for the massive bond measures is revealed in a nine minute Full Disclosure™ Video News Blog covering a debate hosted by the Milken Institute just days before the election. The video is to be featured on the Internet and on 43 cable television systems, as part the Full Disclosure Network’s™ regular programming.

Here are a few of the revelations from participants featured in the video news blog:

  • Don Perata, California State Senator in describing the massive bond proposals stated.. “We don’t know how it will work, until we have the money” saying that Californians don’t mind incurring debt, after all the average family is much more in debt than is state government.
  • James McNulty, CEO Parsons Corporation informs the panel that he does not expect there will be substantial bidders on the bond projects nor does the industry have the capacity to complete the massive projects, citing the reasons why.
  • Dr. Adrian Moore, V.P. Reason Foundation argues that each year’s state budget was to include infrastructure projects, but the legislature has spent the money on other matters. He asks the question “How will we pay (for the bonds) if we don’t currently have the funds? Where are we going to get the money?
  • B. Scott Minerd, CEO Guggenheim Partners a public finance expert tells Full Disclosure™ “the likelihood that we are not going to get everything we paid for in the bond issues is quite high”

Video: How Mexican Drug Cartels Infiltrated California Politics: Internet Video (9 min)

Los Angeles, CA. According to 33 year veteran international gang specialist and retired L.A. Sheriff’s Sergeant Richard Valdemar, Mexican drug cartels have infiltrated city councils and political campaigns in many small cities in Los Angeles County. Full Disclosure Network™ presents a FREE nine minute (9) preview from Part 3 in a series of interviews with Valdemar covering the impact of the Mexican Mafia gangs, drug cartels and illegal aliens in American cities. Available FREE on the internet, 24/7, on demand, as a public service.

Summary of Part 3 of the Valdemar interview series:

  • Sgt. Valdemar cited the following cities as having been infiltrated by the Mexican drug cartels: Lynwood, Bell Gardens, Hawaiian Gardens, South Gate, Huntington Park., Vernon, Cudahy.
  • Drug cartels set up phony businesses to launder drug money, usually used car lots, used tire shops that serve as a “front” for their operations.
  • Sgt. Valdemar says it all starts when a small business, like a restaurant, is purchased by someone with drug money from Mexico, who sets up shop and starts inviting the city fathers to come for complimentary or discounted meals.
  • Then invitations are extended to local police and other government officials, until the business operator is well established, with powerful friends.
  • Drug money is used to send out smear campaign literature to destroy reputations of incumbent city council members and to finance the campaigns of challengers whose goal is to get a majority voting block on the city council.
  • Once the drug cartel controls the city council, they fire the city attorney, city manager and start giving out contracts, like the trash collection contract, to their cronies.

The entire four-part interview series with Sgt. Richard Valdemar is scheduled to run on 43 cable systems. Channels and airtimes can be found on the website.

Public Bond $Money Used For Political Patronage: Watch 6 min Internet Video

Los Angeles, CA. Secret bonds known as COPs (Certificates of Participation) bonds are being used by California cities, counties and school districts "to get a lot of cash up front to pay off their political patronage friends and then stick future generations of taxpayers without any voter approval of this long-tem debt;” so says Jon Coupal, President of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association in a six-minute preview of a two-part (one hour) interview on the Full Disclosure Network™ program. This Internet preview is “free on demand” , available 24/7, as a public service.

Some of the points made in the video are:
  • When asked how taxpayers could be denied their right to vote on public indebtedness, Jon Coupal said: “The law has been carefully crafted by those that have a vested interest in the process, those in local governments, political, elected officials, bureaucrats and of course the bond business, the bond underwriters, the bond counsels and bond marketers. They have a cottage industry and they get a lot of money out of it. The last thing they want is some voter approval process to screw it up.”
  • When asked to respond the Los Angeles Unified School Board Member David Tokofsky claimed that the District’s issuing COP bonds has never been challenged (for legality). John Coupal said “I think it would be something we would consider doing. I mean, we have always looked at COP bonds as a potential area for litigation because we believe, certainly in spirit, they violate the voter approval requirements mandated by the California Constitution (and Proposition 13).
  • When asked why the LAUSD always seem to be out of money? Coupal said “the L.A. Unified School District has a budget that’s higher, that’s greater than 20 states, it’s huge, it’s monolithic. It is just a massive entity that we believe has ill-served the parents and children of the City of Los Angeles. If one add not only the operational funds, which works out to over $10,000 per student, per year, but adds on top of that the capital revenues available to them, the children of this district should be getting a Cadillac education and of clearly they are not”…. The L. A. Unified School District continues to be a poster child for mismanagement and bad use of taxpayer funds.”
