Shouting Match And Other Weirdness

In an earlier post I mentioned an unsavory exchange between activist/council candidate Harold Weitzberg and a grumpy old fella from Mesa North - a guy I've referred to variously as The Mouth From Mesa North and Costa Mesa's racist laureate.  Well, here's a little 3-minute video clip that shows that exchange from last Tuesday's council meeting.

And, just so things are clear, here's the just over 9 minute tape of the imported shill for Jim Righeimer's Charter, Kevin Dayton, that started this whole thing.

Get Microsoft Silverlight
I don't talk much about The Mouth's pathetic blog.  Although, if I wanted a one-stop-shop for news about black on white crime world-wide his is the place to visit.  He's become a major cheerleader for the 3Ms - there are actually 4 Ms on the ballot, but everyone is ignoring Al Melone.  The Mouth puffs and pontificates, extolling the virtues of his favored three - which is his right, as misguided as it might be.
Recently, though, I've become more than a little concerned about him.  He seems to be distracted by a strange attraction to me.  He posts photos of me frequently on his blog and stalks me around public venues trying to get more.  I speculated recently that he might "have a thing" for me - you know, a man-crush.  How else does one explain such bizarre behavior?  In fact, today he posted what apparently is one of his favorite photos of me - he uses it frequently -  and told his readers that he was trying to imagine me 'in tights'.  Too weird!  Especially from a guy who frequently extols the virtues of plural marriage on his blog.  I guess you just never know, huh?  Sometimes you can't tell the book by his bluster...

So, to set the record straight - so to speak - I find these bizarre shows of attention from this chest-thumping Neanderthal bully to be completely unwelcome.  I'm a VERY HAPPILY married - 45 years and counting - heterosexual man.  The Mouth will have to visualize someone else in his "Deliverance-on-the-log" fantasies.  Ewwwww!  He will have to find another subject of his pent-up, prurient passions - perhaps in the back woods of West Virginia.

Now, if you'll excuse me, after having written about him, I have to go disinfect my entire blog!

It's interesting that everyone trashes Kevin Dayton as an out of towner trying to pass our Charter, but no one is talking about the Orange County Fire Authority, the out of town union that is trying to take over fire department, and the tens of thousands they are spending in mail to fight the Charter. No difference between Dayton and OCFA.

I'd love to hear some crticisim from Mr. Weitzberg on OCFA.

Not holding my breath!!

I'm all for LGBT rights. Marty can find such action in any city in Orange County if he's so inclined. But it is very odd that he apparently macks on a long-married man. How is this less offensive than if he was doing the same to a married woman?
It's arguably a form of sexual harassment.

Marty owes Mr. West, the city, and his council majority buddies a big apology.

Geoff West, when the slates hit, know that OCFA union is funding them against the Charter.

Jane you ignorant slit come to mind. As you say of others, you are pathetic. And you are angry

Geoff, Weitzberg is completely out of line. Like it or not, he was given additional time by the presiding officer. Weitzberg's hijacking of the meeting and his stated intention to shout down whoever he thinks talks too much is indicative of his complete unsuitability for council.

In this instance, The Mouth was correct and should be thanked for telling Weitzberg to shut up.

"The Mouth" probably feels the same way about Jews as he does about black and brown people.

We disagree with Mr. West about Marty's suitability for West Virginia- better would be Paraguay with the surviving 3rd reich types.

And in light of his man-crush on Geoff, we DON'T want to know why they call him The Mouth..

I'm glad we finally have someone that can stand up for the residents, against the city council abuse towards residents. Thank you, Howard, for caring enough for what is RIGHT to take a stand.

Millard would no doubt be much happier in some humidity-soaked, hyper-rural, Stars-&-Bars-in-the-courthouse southern dystopia, impressing the local peckerwoods with his vast knowledge of eugenics and the dangers of, as he so colorfully puts it, "race mixing." Why does he stay in southern California, probably the most racially (and everything else) diverse state in the union? Very odd. Perhaps he believes himself to be on a crusade among the race polluters, one in which he preaches only to himself. Who the hell else would listen to this loon? Only the son he never had, Allan Mansoor.

MM strikes again, leaving the facts far behind!
I was at that meeting when Dayton performed his 11+ minute skit complete with early rants, egging on the audience many, many times " listen to them!!!!!". His eyes were bulging, his nostrils flaring, his voice shrieking as he planted himself in front of the audience, threw his arms out facing us with a 'bring it' stance and the most deranged expression I've seen on a human face. He attempted to incite a riot in our council chambers.
Yes- we asked him to stop SEVERAL times, especially when he was taunting us. He wouldn't hear of it and just screamed louder.
Harold wasn't the only one shouting him down.Most of us were as he had no more right to be in our council chambers, trying to whip people into a frenzy than any other disruptive and verbally abusive person. He did scream at us that we were "Fascists!!!!" a number of times.
Dayton needed to be removed and look in the mirror. The biggest fascist could be found there.
Harold should not shoulder the blame for shouting down Dayton. I did too as did most in the audience.
The question should be why did Righeimer allow an outside lobbyist to come and hijack our Public Comments with his propaganda?
Why didn't he arrange for a separate presentation??
Isn't that how it is done?
Why was this such a clusterbomb from the get go?

I beg to differ with Mssrs. Mallard and Barry The Brilliant. The OCFA has nothing to do with anything local here. However I did have a brief visit by one of the 1st Responders from the Dana Point OCFA when I got 7 stitches while tripping and hitting a pier post at Doheny in the early evening. The good Fire Captain made the decision on the spot mind you, that I did indeed have to have stitches. That's it on the OCFA .They are not in Costa Mesa at all.
Mr Mallard conviently overlooked the fact that Mr. Dayton, The Mouth from Far Nor Cal was a lobbyist that does not travel for free and fun. He gets paid for his appearences speaking of which were not Oscar caliber both Categories:Thought and Content.
In fact as I watched on the City Council Channel in the comfort of my sofa, I'm really glad I missed the amateurish antogonism from Mr. Nor Cal Big Mouth, a thinly disguised paid agitator.He is about the lowest of the low and entirely boring, I admit that for a moment when he attempted to start a riot that fizzled I did chuckle at this buffoon.

My transcript of the initial few seconds of Dayton's interchange with Righeimer. Riggy assented to giving him extra time, but the number of minutes he granted him was unintelligible to me.

R: Mr. Dayton
D: Yes, uh, councilmember Righeimer, I understand…
R: You’re with the Dayton public policy institute, this is the call you made to us about doing the presentation?
D: Uh, that’s correct. And I wondered if I would be able to extend my time beyond the three minutes and take questions [last two words overlaid by R’s reply]
R: They contacted us earlier on in there to go over prevailing wage from the Dayton Public policy institute brought by the association of building contractors and I’ll give you the (unintelligible)
D: That’s right
R: minutes.
D: Thank you. Uhm. First, let’s not call it prevailing wage anymore. That’s actually a misnomer...

I cannot be certain, but I have the distinct impression that Dayton brought his own crew of "thugs" to shout him down at the end of his screed; through all the "uhms" and "Uhs' it appears as though the material was fairly thoroughly rehearsed. There were certainly some union people there, but a large clacque left at the same time Dayton did, and there was no belligerence in evidence between them and him.

Martin Millard is one of the most credible speakers to ever make a comment at our Costa Mesa city council meetings. He gets his facts straight and tells it like it is.

The rest of you contribute nothing more than noise and nonsense.

Dayton was a member of the post-1994 election Associated Builders and Contractors National Government Affairs Department, described by National Journal magazine in October 1995 as The Mean Team: “…it is tenacious and favors the take-no-prisoners approach to litigation and lobbying…it’s just another day at the office for the ABC’s pugnacious team.” He subsequently created and directed the aggressive and principled Government Affairs programs for what is now the Northern California Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (formerly the Golden Gate Chapter) and for Associated Builders and Contractors of California.

The biggest racist in Costa Mesa... I am glad he is affitliated with the the 3 M's Monahan, Melone and Mensinger. He Mallard makes the 4th M. Oh wait I got Charlie McCarthy mixed up with Melone.

Oh well Melone, Mallard, McCarthy, Mensinger, Monahan all bad for Costa Mesa.

I do like the Responsible Government 3 or RG3.

Just remember to vote for some Costa Mesa SWAG.
Stephens Weitzberg and Genis!

The fact that the Mayor did not immediately stop Mr. Millard and said that "order will come on its own," or something to that effect is reprehensible. The Mayor is supposed to maintain ORDER and DECORUM. In ALL of my time on the Council and other public boards, I have never witnessed one speaker attack another without the Chair intervening. This type of behavior has NO place in Costa Mesa and NO place in our City Council Chambers. Mr. Millard should be ashamed of himself. This is America. Suddenly it is ok to chastise and scorn those who have differing opinions. All of us must support those who are being attacked. I will continue to intervene and call for order when things are out of control as this event was the other night.

You must be new to the area.
You must have missed when Marty tried to cover the paintball incident. Time and time again Martin has been proven a race baiter with nothing to say.
Martin hates the PD due to officers like Epperson calling him out for what he truly is. Martin is a disgrace and considering how close he was with Mansoor, his man crush on West makes perfect sense.

Wendy, thanks! We need to hold the CC responsible for their actions also, or lack thereof. Shame on you, Bever.

His signs should say, "Stuff the Bever" instead of vote for Bever.

He's pathetic. Don't let him get elected to any post again.

Wendy, you are absolutely right.
Millard should have been stopped right away
when he badgering Harold. No, Bever had no intentions of stopping anything until you called on him to restore order in the council chambers.
It was then and is very apparent who is acting as a representative of Costa Mesans- you are!
