The SSUC, Why Oakland Central City is underserved.

1) Fruitvale Village 2, Phase 1 Better not cost more than the ridiculous $53,050,000.00 You have approved. San Leandro has built a superior
Development called Marea Alta across Street from Marina Bart for $38,000,000.00 providing 115ea 1, 2, & 3 Bedroom Apartments for
$38,000,000.00, This includes a 240 car Garage to serve BART & the Residents. They opened their phase 1 5-17-2017, 1 week ago.
They have started on Phase 2. 85 Senior Apartments, at cost of $20,000,000.00. So, for $58,000,000.00 San Leandro receives
200 Units, & 240 Garage Spaces.
Our Unity Council has hired a Shuttle moving specialist, but are charging Oakland For a MOONTRIP…
For the $53,050,000.00, These “geniuses” promise us 94 Units, and a 47 car Garage… Wow, aren’t we Lucky.
When you add the $6,000,000.00 not used, we are at $59,050,000.00, for less than ½ what Marea Alta cost.
This transaction makes all of US in Oakland “DUMB”.

2) Misuse of Public Funds; In 2015 FY $557,000 from Neighborworks America was used to supplement their GPF.
In 2016 Fy the Unity Council appropriated $3,050,000.00 advance on the rents at Fruitvale Village for Seniors thru 2024,
Presenting funds are needed for Development. Only to use those funds to add into their GPF, “We will borrow against
Contstruction Loan on Fruitvale Village Phase 2, Pt 1.
This action adds $6,100,000.00 to cost of Fruitvale Village Phase 2, Pt 1.
They also used Funds that the San Francisco Foundation , June 2015, again another $3,000,000.00
In the GPF of the Unity Council. They come back requesting $2.5 in support for COLA & use of illegal buildings.
And personnel. This averages to a $200,000.00 Loss monthly.

The Books are a Joke. They have misused >$6,000,000 of funds for FTV 2. Will double cost of loan on Construction Bond.

3) What Happened to Oakland Lift. A $5,000,000.00 program to assist
New Home Buyers in Oakland. Up to $20k assistance. What happened to this program.
Who were the Families that were served in Oakland. Instead they took it on road, 14
Counties. Oakland was NOT served. The remaining $2,900,000 after Administrative fees
Was assigned to the Homeownership Group, Directed By Ms Powers, & Ms Patch. This IS an entity
Of the Unity Council NOT accounted for in the 2014~2015 Fy. There was no Accounting mad public for
The Fy ended Sept 30, 2014

There is More…

If the 10% Possibility happens. Both Libby Schaaf & Noel Gallo will not be Mayor of Oakland in 2019.

The 10% possibility the Oakland Raiders win Super Bowl LII.

Doesn’t matter how much money she will have accumulated to support her campaign.
The Anger of the Raider Nation will Boil over, as the remaining Home Dates dwindle under 5  Election Day Tuesday 6, November 2018.

It makes no sense, Las Vegas Raiders… But when you think about it.

       It’s better for the Franchise, It is not good for the NFL as a Whole.

I was an Oakland Raider PSL Owner, and now a “Lame Duck” Season Ticket Holder. 2 things that were once marketed as a something of Value…

      Lesson Learned…

Be thankful for the 23 Years, again look disdainfully as to City Leaders… as to why a Deal could not be broken. Ask Why at the very least, If the City was truly pushing the A’s to Howard Terminal. Why the City & County could not rationalize that saving it’s constituents the Yearly Bonds payments… Sell the lands to the NFL & Raiders, Retire the Burden on the Taxpayers.

      The only saving possibility…

The A’s purchase the Coliseum Land, Pay the bonds off… Dissolve the JPA.

Allow the A’s to build a Ballpark Village with Market Rate Homes… Without strings from the City.

       Otherwise.

Having the A’s move to Howard Terminal will just duplicate, as in “COPY” San Francisco. With no for see able future for the “Shovel Ready” Land at the Coliseum. No Tenant. Thus the Coliseum Plan of 1995 has Failed… #1 Retaining the Pro Sports Tenants.

     Personally, I cannot say how I will feel about the Raiders until I deal with the Hole on my soul after the Team plays it’s Last Season at O.Co…

Except, I like thousands of other Oakland Native Raider Fans will no longer spend Thousands Yearly on the NFL…

The NFL Smokescreen… Reality. LA Rams, LA Raiders, & LV Chargers. Why this makes Sense.

142_36_16Los Angeles has welcomed back the Rams, and what they received was, the Rams. They still want an Elite NFL Football Team. For 20 Years in Oakland we have been Developing that.
What Los Angeles doesn’t want is the Chargers. Mark Davis has a Sweet Deal in LV. The
money guy in Vegas, Sheldon Alderson wants a portion of Team… Or he will walk.
Oakland “Raiders” Fans will not travel to LV. But have already traveled to see team in LA.
Kronke  gets his Partner… and BLOCKBUSTER tenant. He is a Developer First. Profit stream SECURED.
Charger fans loathe traveling to LA, but I believe could do the SD thing, some by way of Palm Springs. The Spanos Family owns enough of Chargers where they could sell/trade enough of Ownership to Alderson to satisfy his Ownership needs. In Turn Mark Davis gets the best Lease agreement in a Palace. He Does not have to market to an area starved for this Football Team. Everybody making Money is Happy…

I Love Ronnie, Rodney, & Marcus’ vision in Oakland with Fortress… But you know what… It is still there. They will just be developing a Baseball Stadium for the Oakland A’s… The Administration in Oakland, gets their Green Dream. Almost Everybody Wins in the end.

Oakland “Raiders” Fans Lose the Raiders… Again. I am not as heartbroken this Time. This Time I spent it as a 20+ Year Season Ticket Holder. I have seen more Games, than they played before the Team  moved the First Time. If they have to move, LA will not Distract the Team as Vegas has too much great “sin” going on 24/7/365.29.

The 2017 AFC Wild, Wild West… Den, KC, LA(R), LV(C)

 

 

 

Reason for DNC Email breach… Podesta did not get International Memo… Not Russia

On 15, Aug 2013 Google filed a Court Filing that could be interpreted or opining… An email to any of Google’s 425 million Gmail users have no “reasonable expectation” that their communications are confidential, the internet giant has said in a court filing.
The response was to the security of the email sent to and used in, with, or thru Google email accounts.
CONCLUSION ; An 8 Yr old could have raided John Podesta’s GMail Account. The rhetoric that the Russians are involved… Well, The Supreme Court allowed the right to Advertise
& engage in our elections by allowing Super PACs. I consider this an International Super Pac, and SCOTUS opened this door. ALL OF THIS I feel, made it so that Russia did not need to do this. It is very basic, not so sophisticated Hacking.

A Business Person as a CEO of a Nation…

What a Concept… A qualified Businessman as CEO of the Country. Historic Gains November 21, 2016. Financial Futures looking bright. The Trump Bull Market , sees financial success for Business’. All for economic indicators moving in an economy based on performance. It will be nice to emerge from Quantitative Easing. There has to be profit from buying Government bonds.. How about Banks paying interest to savings accounts for a change. The Banks haven’t lost Profits. Be nice to see Wells Fargo in receivership. Carved up among quality banking institutions…

Now we need more business oriented Politicians, than the needy ones we seem to keep. On this, I think the City of Oakland has a pretty good CEO in Mayor Schaaf, ‘cept she loves the A’s more than my Raiders. Her Legacy should be mandated whether we get real value from $600M in Prop DD funds.

Make America Great Again

Miguel,They said we could never do it.

But last night you showed the world that America will once again be a country of, for, and by the PEOPLE.

You fought like a winner, you defied all odds, and history will forever remember the role you played in taking our country back.

I never could’ve done it without you, Miguel.

Thank you
Last night we learned that America is still a beacon of hope where the impossible is possible.

For far too long, we’ve heard Washington politicians give the excuse that “it can’t be done.” They say we can’t balance the budget, we can’t stop corruption, we can’t control the border, we can’t bring jobs back to our country.

I REFUSE to accept that it can’t be done. This is the country that declared its independence, won two world wars, and landed a man on the moon. This is America. We can and we WILL get it done.

Now it’s time to start uniting our country and binding the wounds of our divided nation. I promise to be a president for ALL Americans. I will work for you. I will fight for you. And I will win for you.

You will soon remember what it’s like to win as an American.

Thank you and God bless you,

Donald J. Trump

 

 

 

I am proud of this, There are some Days I could never be prouder of our Country. We just escaped from the Media Driven Asylum… We are NOT Sheeple!

Now it is that so called Democrats that were worried that the Trump Supporters would not accept the results are now protesting & trashing My City. It was HerStory that I could not accept. Had the Democratic Party properly vetted their Candidate, maybe it would have been Bernie… Maybe the competition might have pushed Hillary’s Staff to greater heights.  Instead there was this media driven Great Hillary, Bad Donald daily grind. Where her staff started the 4th Quarter with a 24-7 lead… Played a prevent Defense, Conservative Offense not trying to lose the lead. The opposing Team Tied the score in Regulation. To then score a Touchdown on a pick six after losing the Coin Flip.

The Democratic sheep bought the whole nine yards. The 3 point lead. I am a Californian, I knew Hillary was going to win California By nearly 3 points. I knew it was close… When we turned Ohio, I knew it was possible… They fed the masses the belief that it was over… So many did not bother believing the Clinton Campaign needed the votes. Wow. At my polling place it was 178 Clinton 17 Trump. Historic.
