Ron Kaye: The Ugly Side of Los Angeles Politics



Segment #1: L A County Demands Media Retraction on Football & Frisbee Ban
L A County Board of Supervisors approve law without reading it first. . Then they find out that they banned football and Frisbees on the beaches. Citizens complain they are loosing their freedoms. CBS news reported it right but the County backtracks claiming the news media did not check with them first and demanded a correction. Veteran news editor Ron Kaye says the media got it right and that is why the Supervisors ordered the measure to be re-written in clear language.

Segment #2: Four Kings & Queen Reign Over L A County
LA County is ruled by royalty, Four Kings and a Queen who are elected to the Board of Supervisors and are elected and re-elected year after year because they control so much money. Ron Kaye describes how the five Supervisors were humiliated by their own actions, when they approved a new Beach Ordinance unanimously that banned the public from playing ball on the beach. Kaye suggests the only way it will change is if an army of citizens rise up against the government abuse and stop the government manipulation of recreational activity, nudity and drinking on the beach.

Segment #3: Government Silences Ordinary Citizens, Deciding In Private
Veteran Newsman Ron Kaye describes how the L A City Council favors special interests over the citizens at council meetings. Their unanimous votes without public participation raises the issue that they are making decisions in private before the public meetings. The California Brown Act forbids closed meetings without public attendance and participation. There is rarely any enforcement and it almost always requires financing a lawsuit to force the government to be honest.

  JUDICIAL WATCH FIGHTS FOR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS



Los Angeles, CA  Full Disclosure Network® presents this 3 minute video trailer of a documentary movie entitled"The Cost of Courage" based on a three-year television interview series covering California Court Corruption and the 18 month long solitary "coercive confinement" of 70 year old former U.S. Prosecutor Richard I. Fine. The trailer features clips from the movie with actor Ed Asner who is the narrator, Richard Fine, Rabbi Chaim Mentz along with Mary Ellen and Tory Fine.

Court Case Prevents Completion of Movie
The Superior Court ban on access to Los Angeles Stanley Mosk courthouse, Department 86 courtroom even "when empty" has prevented Full Disclosure from completing the final scenes of the movie. The request made was to use the "empty" court room to video record an account of what happened there when Richard Fine was taken into custody by the Sheriff and to the Men's Central Jail on March 4, 2009.
