San Francisco has always lead the way - from the days of the Ohlone - the First People - who embraced the " strangers " - they gave them their all - only to be stabbed in the back.

All of San Francisco and the neighboring areas belongs to the Muwekma Ohlone.

No one would know  - the " thieves " who stole the land - the others corrupt to the core - the likes of Mayor Edwin M. Lee - continue to do disservice - to millions who are adversely impacted - hard working - tax paying - decent citizens.

Joining him the likes of London Breed, Malia Cohen, Mark Farrell, Katy Tang - and others one worse than the others.

Evicted from her home -
Ms Canada - over 100 years old -
is now lies in hospital - very ill.

Recently we saw what happened to Ms Canada a 100 year old plus Black woman - who has been evicted from her home - her valuable and personal things - taken to a storage place.

More without supervisions from her next of kin - or appointed attorneys.

No one knows  - how best to recover her personal documents - linked to her eviction - the many briefs linked to recent court cases.

 Some of the cases which she won - and others that were denied - her rights violated - undue influence used - all action committed   recently - while Ms Canada - was in hospital.

Tommi Avicolli Mecca -
has devoted his life to help those that need help most -
a leading SF Tenant Advocate - respected by all - worth the salt.

San Francisco has always had advocates - whose heart is in the right place - in the case of Ms Canada - we witnessed the work of Tenant Advocate - Tommi Avicolli Mecca.

Kudos to Tommi -  hundreds like him - that our City and County of San Francisco has failed to recognize - more acknowledged for their selfless work.

Often making big sacrifices on the personal level - to service others in need.  God bless the advocates and those that support them and their families.

No one seems to care about the homeless
in San Francisco - we have a homeless crazy -
who makes in access of $200, 000 plus benefits.

It is a pity to see thousands living in tents, under the bridges, in cars - in places that are filthy - all over San Francisco.

More in this very inclement weather - the heavy rains, the extreme cold - the City and County of San Francisco - looking the other way - with disdain.

The San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee - has failed miserably - and in recent months - more after the defeat of Hillary Clinton - a pronounced liar and very corrupt - to the core.

All over this Nation over 1200 Democrats have lost their seats - and with all the excuses - the Democrats -will not be able to put things on track.

It is always very difficult to put things on track - when with intent - corruption of the highest order,  lying,  stealing, more  hoodwinking - has been the " opus operandi " of the Democrats - many of them living and pretending all is well - within their sordid Party - here in San Francisco.

The Independents in San Francisco - who are ideally poised to bring about change - were taken for a ride by Bernie Sanders - who was bribed by the Democrats - more Hillary Clinton - towards the end - of the November 2016 General Election.

We now have a " egotistical maniac " in the White House.

Dianne Feinstein

Nancy Pelosi

The above facts must not go unnoticed - more so when we know - that some of the most corrupt Democrats who purport to represent this Nation are here in San Francisco - among them Diane Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi - who despicable so called politicians - who despite being despondent - still continue to bark up the wrong tree.

Our San Francisco politicians - are now stuck in the muck - none of them expected to face the many current " cuts " - coming down the pipeline.

Donald Trump and his lackeys - willing want to make things difficult - slowly but surely bring the Democrats to their knees - the likes of very corrupt Mayor Edwin M. Lee.

Juliet Ellis - Assistant General Manager of External Affair -
San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

Millions of dollars set aside for Community Benefits - linked to the Sewer System Improvement Project - have been used by Mayor Edwin M. Lee to provide Summer Jobs.

Money willingly made available to to Mayor Edwin M. Lee - by Juliet Ellis - who will do anything - to carry on the " evil " that she is know to perpetuate - on innocent people - more hard working,  decent - SF Public Utilities employees - that come under her jurisdiction.

Early on Juliet Ellis transferred $200, 000 to Green For All - from the Community Benefits linked to the Sewer System Improvement Project.

The Fair Political Action Committee charged her - Juliet Ellis had to pay the fine.

The SF Ethics Commission was slow to adjudicate the case - but forced to follow up on the Fair Political Action Committee case - linked to the evil Juliet Ellis.

The SF Ethics Commission - bowed down to pressure - and after Juliet Ellis paid the fines - she was permitted to keep her job.

In the last November 2016 General Elections - forgetting what transpired - not long ago - Juliet Ellis again - got involved in the " political shenanigans " - she backed some Supervisors - with donations - that she sought favors from - and this case is being looked into.

Corruption of the worst order - lies deep in the DNA - of Juliet Ellis who is a disgrace to the human race.

At the SF Public Utilities Commission - many SFPUC keep mentioning to me the corrupt deeds of Juliet Ellis - and still this woman continues - to  hold the position  of Assistant General Manager of External Affairs.

Juliet Ellis -  knows nothing much about State Bills, less about Federal Bills - even less about the many laws governing constituents impacted by changing State and Federal laws - linked to Clean Water and Sewer issues -  that impacts the tax payers.

The SF Public Utilities Commission is now seriously contemplating mixing ground water - with Hetch Hetchy water - for NO good reason.

Except to irritate the tax payers - who continue paying more - and get less good service - when it comes to our water and sewer service. 

And now Juliet Ellis wants to compromise of drinking water.

San Francisco has astute advocates - many of them - have two or three college degrees - other who have qualified experience  - many advocates offer their services " pro bono " - and we are watching the corrupt - who adversely impact the poor, the indigent, those who cannot defend themselves.

We have the poor - slowly dying - hundreds in the morgue - labelled at " John and Jane Doe ".

The Mayor Edwin M. Lee - lying through his teeth - has not said a word about Ms. Canada - agreed with our current Sherif who replaced the previous Sherif Ross Mirkarimi.

Ross Mirkarim - who would never, ever - have done what this current Sherif is doing - adversely impact a 100 year old Black woman - if this is NOT blatant discrimination - what is?

Thank God in the land of the Muwekma Ohlone - we have stellar and astute advocates - who fight for what is right. Aho.

Mountain Tunnel 

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) has failed to represent the constituents of San Francisco - more the Assistant General Manager of External Affairs - and the head of the Public Relations - within the SF Public Utilities Commission.

Right now Mountain Tunnel which is in very close proximity to the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir - is shut for some " emergency repairs ".

In the past - many inspections were conducted - and this " ploy " - is one of many baffling those that keep monitoring the nefarious activities - in some areas - within the SF Public Utilities Commission.

The San Francisco Public has been kept in the dark - time and time again - as the SF Public Utilities Commission meetings - fail to appraise the public at large on important issues - one of them - Mountain Tunnel and its recent closure.

Mountain Tunnel lies in the vicinity of the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir:

Yosemite Valley

The issue about Mountain Tunnel has been brought up - only for those listening - preferring to say nothing much about the -urgent concern and precarious - issue.

When any Prime Contractor is given millions of dollars - to conduct an inspection - and the Prime gives a clean slate - as it did on Mountain Tunnel - in the past - some 7 years ago.

We should investigate - why at this late date - at the end of the Water System Improvement Project - which started in the year 2002 - why are we dealing once again with Mountain Tunnel - for the second time around.

This project is now slated to cost $21 million - the project will shut down Mountain Tunnel for two months for sure.

If it warrants that the walls be shored up - millions will be wasted in the interim - if the conditions linger - linked to its inner wall - the issue will have to be addressed.

Plans are afoot to build a brand new tunnel or conduit - in close proximity costing over $650 million.

Learn where we get our clean drinking water from -
some 160 miles away from San Francisco.

As I said we are at the end of the Water System Improvement Project - a project that cost SF Public Utilities Commission over $4.6 Billion dollars.

 $2.6 Billion from bonds that the tax payers from San Francisco - and the remaining from our partners that receive cleaning drinking water from the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir - as part of a standing agreement with Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency.

We are NOT in a drought - but plans are afoot to mix ground water - giving some flimsy excuse - that our ground water can aid the present situation.

Which makes no sense - million of gallons are over flowing - from our Reservoirs - because all of them have more than reached their capacity. Who is fooling whom?

Our clean drinking water comes from 160 miles away - the area near Yosemite Park - land that was stolen from the Miwoks, the Pomos,  the Paiutes - stolen from the Tribes near  Yosemite and the confluence of the many rivers - are Sacred Waters - that were protected and revered - only to be stolen and desecrated.

Do you know where we get our clean drink water from ? :

It is a sacrilege to mix other water - tainted water - because our Watershed that was once pristine - is contaminated.

The SF Public Utilities Commission - is so ignorant on these issues - that their mentality - baffles most - and with it the rampant corruption - prevailing under Juliet Ellis who heads the Department of External Affairs - and under whose jurisdiction comes - the Public Relations Department.

San Franciscans have been treated with disdain - for years now - the SF Public Utilities Commission time and again - depriving good Contractors and favoring those that are corrupt.

Right now that is the case with the Sewer System Improvement Project - a $6 Billion plus project - that will cost us in access of $9 Billion.

On practically every phase - of the Sewer System Improvement Project - there has been long delays - and all we get are excuse

$300 million were set aside as Community Benefits - by a special Task Force - from the Bayview Hunters Point Area.

Today Juliet Ellis controls half of that money - and the other half is controlled by Dwayne Jones.

The Digestors and its design have been awarded to a company from Scandinavia - never mind - some of the SF Public Utilities Commission - have taken junkets - to Scandinavia - when we have better technology - here in the United States.

The stench that should be addressed - emitting from the Raw Sewage Treatment Plant - polluting and contaminating a large area - in and around Phelps Street - is unbearable - the smell nauseating - no one seems to care - the year is 2017.

Our Weirs are in disrepair - secondary effluents - spilling into the Bay - and on occasion when we have had - very heavy rains - half-treated sewage - contaminates the Bay.

The SF Public Utilities Commission - thinks this situation is a JOKE - and the sooner - they realize it is not - the better.

Again and again very corrupt contractors - who give kick-backs - work closely with the SF Public Utilities Commission - to receive large contracts in the millions - this nonsense must STOP.

They contract given to McMillen Jaccobs Associates is over $21 million - tax payers money.

 No one - seems to be bothered that our quality of drinking water - is deteriorating - in San Francisco.

Some months ago - stinking, smelling water - was pouring from our home taps - which I brought to the attention of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission - they listen to the Public at Large - and look away with disdain.

Today our restaurants - those that use our water - are very concerned about " quality " issues - and very poor decisions making has gone into this issues - that will impact millions - more linked to our restaurants and other in the making of other products - consumed by the public at large.

I will be addressing some of the salient and pertinent issues - tomorrow at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission meeting - held at SF City Hall - in Room 400 at 1:30 pm.

Take some time to learn - where we get our clean drinking water from:

The indigenous people have always travelled across vast distances - traded - have had intercourse and inter-personal relationships  with their neighbors -  from other areas - mostly Tribes - for thousands of years.

 At times disagreed and have had battles - only in course to time - understanding that " harmony " - and " good relations " - bring about - progress.

It is a shame how the dynamics have changed - when Whites mostly - brought in their guns - and used force - more killing, raping, genocide of millions of people - to subject millions more - under their dictates.

Referring to the Magna Carta and other noted dispositions - not worth the salt - and for sure NOT applicable to indigenous people - Black, Brown and those that truly care for Mother Earth.

The recent invasion of the Europeans - who are the trouble makers - English, French, German, Dutch - other of their kind.

Never mind if the dictates - these Europeans announced with pomp - were and are  far apart  - from the way and understanding - of the way - the " indigenous " people have lived for thousands of years.

Whites as we know them - more linked to Europe -  we know when the great Mayan and other civilizations reigned supreme - Whites more European - lived in caves - with chickens and cattle - chickenpox.

Did not take a bathe for years - hygiene was foreign to these uncivilized Whites - and less compassion and sharing.

Homo Sapiens originated in Africa - and while we may ponder about Australopithecus origins 2-4 million years ago - Homo Habilis (1. 8 -2. 5 million years ago ) - Homo Erectus ( 2 - 4 million years ago ) - we clearly know more today - than when the Europeans - targeted Blacks and Brown - and treated them with disdain.

DNA today reveals a lot - and in recent months - those human beings who have the genes linked to the Neanderthals - supposedly tells us more - as opposed to those " hominines " going back to our common ancestor - " chimpanzees ". 

I am here to give the reader a glimpse of what I subjectively have  arrived - sharing my thoughts with like minded folks.

More - who are Anthropologists. Ethno-historians, Paleoarchaeologists - experts who deal with DNA - to further broaden our and  my understanding.

It helps when some one arrives on the scene - as we have a person today in the White House. Some us have figured - the past - and know the present - and connecting the dots - and configure the future.

Today in San Francisco - we are confused - because Donald Trump who is an " egoistical maniac " - says one thing and does another. What we are seeing - is just the " tip of the iceberg ".

No monster is created in a vacuum - and if the Democrats - keep on harping that Donald Trump is this and that - let is assure you - the Democrats - who lost over 1100 seats - during the last elections - have only themselves to blame. 

Donald is not even in sync with his Cabinet - often the Secretary of Defense - the Secretary of State - making corrections - and keeping the so called Commander in Chief in line.

The Neanderthals and Donald Trump have too much in common - a simple DNA test will reveal that - the man is out to create confusion - and it comes easy to him - because he is deranged.

Good leaders show the way, know the way and go the way.

No leader who does not have her or his heart in the right place - can take anyone - to a better place.

Spirituality plays a key role - great leaders have always displayed " compassion ".

 While I may state this fact - those that analyze " egotistical maniacs " - may find it difficult to come to a sound conclusion.

Time is on our side - those that have their heart in the right place - will witness the current state of affairs - for better or for worse. More worse.

Here on Turtle Island much before the Whites landed here - by mistake - some 300 years plus - more, without any documents. Times were better than - the indigenous people more Native American Tribes - lived here for thousands of years - the newly arrived urchins - having no clue - about the land they landed on.

They urchins arrived - without any sense of offering anything viable - foremost on their mind - seeking succor - escaping from torture - more seeking " freedom " to practice their faith.

These urchins - far from  bringing solace and progress - have sowed seed of discord.

 What we see today - comes right from that period - the Mayflower  - could have been Tumbleweed - history in the making - and our system of government - has long lived what it should have achieved - today pandemonium reigns - and no one will admit it.

Stuff - that had more adverse impacts - nothing good.

The Blacks, the Brown, the indigenous brought to Turtle Island the best they had to offer - spirituality that matters, food, medicine,  culture, song, dance, innovation - and all of it - holistic.

We have rice, and beans, and even greens that originate from Africa - brought by the slaves - that today some are just learning about.

Cuisine that has baffled many purveyors of fine tastes - shocking the Whites from the South - who once bragged that their cuisine - was the best - Georgia and Mississippi and more.

Black genes are stronger - and that has to be proved - the White Slave Masters - could not leave the Black Slave Women alone - and we know why. 

These strangers - more from European origins - had no understanding of the indigenous people - and their rich culture - that developed here - for thousands of years. 

To this day most Whites are ignorant - and when you reveal to them the state of art innovations - they deny the capability of Blacks and Browns - having the ability to create, make things happen - but all that will change - as more open their mind - and admit who they truly are.

Ignorant to the core - starving,  many of the Whites who landed on this land -  known as Turtle Island - unannounced - were found starving - and brought to life -by the indigenous people.

The history of the United States has been lopsided - and the White mentality to be in charge and in the cockpit at all times - and have no recourse to " cultural competency ".

Fail to understand and deal with issues that plague America on many levels  - " the implicit basis - be it from the days of living in the caves - practicing NO hygiene, having no clue about eating right - having NO access to clean drinking water, healthy meats and greens, and most important clean, fresh, air - and more.

As  the Director of Environmental Justice Advocacy - and addressing Environmental Issues for over 40 years - learning much from my younger days as a youth in Nairobi, Kenya. I am a self made man - be it true that I have been exposed to some of the leading Universities in the World - my way of approaching a subject has been challenged - it serves me right to this day - for over seven decades.

Exposed to such anthropologists as Doctor Richard Leakey and his wife Mary Leakey - who instilled in us youth - the love for human beings - those who know some - about " Lucy "  the East African Rift Valley - and  " Oldowan George " also known as " Olduvai Gorge ".

Most Anthropologists and Scientists agree that the human species emerged in Africa about 200, 000 years ago. 

This understanding is based on fossilized bones and skulls that have been uncovered in East Africa and dated accurately by radiometric dating. 

Our immigrants came here to San Francisco and beyond and  have always had much to offer - bringing with them their goods and trading - from all over South America all the way to Canada in the North and beyond.

The Ohlone were here in San Francisco for thousands of years in one place - carbon dated or using radiometric dating - over 13, 000 years.

This trade and tribal intercourse was in place for thousands of years. The early Russians and Nordic traders saw it - traded in furs and other artifacts - but chose not to settle down in North America.

The Spanish and Mexicans accepted the - " indigenous people " allowed women and men to own land.

 Not so the Europeans that came after - using their arms and ammunition - to force the Mexicans to sell the land - which to this day belongs legally to the " Native American Tribes ".

Of course the sordid Europeans - those from England and Scotland - steeped in their bias and hatred - to this day - target those that are most noble and vulnerable.

The Immigrants - more those that are indigenous in the truest sense of the word - remain close to the Native Americans and that relationship should last and is critical to who can stay here on Turtle Island and who cannot.

Africans were brought here - from the land of " humankind " - AFRICANS - slaved -  Whites made a fortune - illegally.

The BLOOD of the slaves and anyone who was treated less than human - is upon those that today live and think we have forgotten the sins and sordid actions of their ancestors - we will remember.

Those living today - who are linked to the cruelty and inhumanness of the past - must pay restitution - make no bones about that.

More while dealing with the scars of their cruel and heartless ancestors.

 Today spending thousands and visiting psychologists and psychiatrists - physicians - seeking to be healed but the wounds are so deep - etched in the DNA of those living in hell on Earth - today on this Earth.

Sordid, inhumane, barbarians that we know much about - many have chosen to use the manner and route - trying to act and fight speaking the TRUTH.

Abiding to some way of thinking and acting  - that far from bring healing - exacerbates our feelings and stirs up - all that is not good for the Psyche - this nonsense of trying to be so nice and  " politically correct " -  does more harm than good - and is artificial to say the least.

Some saying much but not meaning anything at all - nothing at all - leading to the nonsense we are experiencing today.

More - with the sayings, the tweeting, the utter gibberish - of a person who is best described - " as a egotist maniac ". 

Instilled deep in these Europeans - is GREED - inherent from all the years of starvation - lacking anything holistic - most of them with all the praying - " Spiritually Bankrupt ".

Lacking the verdant forest, the prairies, the large animals be it the Buffalo and others - in their land of origin.

 The Europeans had never seen before - seeing was believing - but their being was never made nor could it comprehend - the deeper meaning of living - compassion - and more loving all human beings.

Hatred stems from fear - and fear knows no bounds - the fascism   - the FASCIST - be it Mussolini and the likes of him - and Donald Trump is one of them - steeped with his ties to the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) - the so called White Supremacy that will fall flat on its face.

When these Whites encountered the Mountain Lions, the Jaguars, the Brown Bears, and other large animals - they were not only shocked, confounded, perplexed, - but totally petrified beyond imagination.

When these ignorant Europeans saw the Red Woods, the Sequoias, the other forests, the lakes, the rivers, the mountains, the hills, the vast plains - they had not seen such fertile land - in their entire lives. Their Greed knew and today knows no bounds.

Some of it is recorded by the surveyors who were sent West by Lewis and Clarke - we do not read history - because history - factual history - not His Tory as most documents written are - fake to the core - are one sided.

The Indigenous People - have been my life's work. 

Today I represent the First People of San Francisco - the Muwekma Ohlone - more on matters linked to Housing, Education, Transportation, Health, Infrastructure, Immigration - and other pertinent issues.

Writing about them mattes - one can talk the talk - but walking the walk matters.

Working with Black and Brown matters - we are at a cross-road - and the REVOLUTION that is going on - all over the place - will soon merge - as a MOVEMENT.

In its purest form - having a viable and sustainable strategy - all participants must be respected - " in toto ".

We saw in the past " The Million Man March " - with NO viable and sustainable success - true an attempt was made - and again - the effort - is worth mentioning, some - but history will recored it - as just that. Those that planted the seed - were not careful - and for sure did not nurture it - as should have been planned.

In recent years - we have seen Women come forth - and again fail to embrace all - " in toto ".

 Women rights are respected by decent men - and the rights of all human beings have to be respected - it should be our universal calling.

 When some keep labeling and trying to push half-baked concepts - down our throat - success is impeded - and history records it as that. Spirituality is critical - for it brings about healing - hatred in any form - even an iota - sprouts disaster.

The Civil Rights Movement - the most pertinent and salient aspects of that movement - began with Mahatma Gandhi - also know as Mohandas Gandhi - who first conceived the Non-Violence Movement in South Africa. 

He first experienced discrimination in England - later even called by Winston Churchill as the - " naked fakir ".

The Father of Non-Violence - endured much in silence - but he over came to touch millions and further bring progress to America - leading the charge a Black - Doctor Martin Luther King Jr.

We must know our history  - to truly discern  - what is Fiction and what is TRUE. The Black on Black Violence must STOP - and Black Women as they mostly do - must be on the frontline to bring about this change.

The Civil Rights Movement - today is all twisted - with those who once followed Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. - dropping the ball - and others the likes of Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson - saying something but meaning - nothing at all.

Appearing on Television - and we all know they sound like empty - barrels.

I have been in the HOOD - and I have those interact with me - and know some -  I have been following the history - of crack cocaine, heroin, the opioids - the genocide inflicted by those in power - Blacks selling Black - House Negros the likes of Malia Cohen, London Breed, Veronica Hunnicutt, Al Williams, Linda Richardson, Shamon Walton, Aurelious Walker, Derf Butler, Angelo King, Amos Brown, Cheryl Davis, Calvin Jones, and more.

Weed laced with pesticides - that those that smoke weed - fail to understand less comprehend - the adverse impacts on their organs - lungs, liver, heart - folks smoking weed to numb the senses. Slowly dying - another tool to complete the Genocide.

This act repeated - millions of times  - brings the down fall of human beings - who cannot think - and less live - as their health is totally compromised.

Our fight continues - we cannot understand - if we are NOT educated on issues. Aho.
