The scent of Santolina has now entered the mayor’s race… Contradictory politics, flip flopping, and two faced politics that has reached new depths.. We connect the dots on the political attacks on Tim Keller.
Folks, Santolina is a perennial genus of chamomile plant that was introduced to this area in 1952 from the Mediterranean. It thrives in a barren, infertile, environments that are well drained, and it lives close to the ground, spreading rapidly. Sound familiar? Because it is a metaphor for what is going on in our community.
For the last eight years large businesses owned by connected individuals have been thriving through political connections, while the poor in this state have been suffering while being drained. The current administration is a perfect example of this, with their slimy no bid contracts, and Berry hooking up his construction and developer friends as in the Albuquerque Rapid Transit Project. While all of this has been going on, we have been trying hard to connect the dots, put faces to those responsible, and outline exactly what is going on, so the filth is exposed to the light.
While all of this is going on forked tongued, politicians in sheep clothing have been portraying themselves as operating in the interests of the citizens, while attacking those who actually have a track record of exposing corruption and truly wanting to do good without enriching themselves.
After years of writing, and exposing behind the scene dealings, pointing out illegalities in the actions of city and government officials, and linking the work of others with the intel we have gathered, that closes the gap on exactly what is going on, and why… this may without a doubt be the most important story we have ever written.
The question exists… WOULD YOU WALK AWAY FROM $8,000,000,000, and just what would you do to insure your investment in something that could bring you that kind of money? Please read this with an open mind, and you do the math. We are just going to provide the intel.
THE BEGINNING OF THE SANTOLINA DRAMA AND THE PLAYERS
Western Albuquerque Land Holdings has been seeking approval of a Planned Communities Master Plan, called the ‘Santolina Master Plan’ in SW Bernalillo County.The area is about 13,851 acres, and is bound by I40 to the north, 118th Street and the escarpment open space to the east, the Pajarito Mesa to the south, and the area adjacent to the Rio Puerco Valley on the west. Along with access from I40, the property is can be reached from several roadways, including Central Avenue, Dennis Chavez Boulevard, Atrisco Vista Boulevard, and 118th Street. In June, 2015, the Bernalillo County Board of Commissioners adopted the Santolina Level A Master Plan for the entire 13,700-acre property. It is a sprawl development.
Jeff Garrett, of Garrett Development Corporation is the asset manager for Western Albuquerque Land holdings, and owns the land that would become Santolina.
The Law firm representing Santolina is the Rodney Law Firm. The four lawyers there working for the Santolina Plan are John Salazar, Richard Minzer, Justin Horowitz, and Robert Lucero.
Bohannon Huston is the engineering firm hired by Santolina for the construction project, and the CEO of this firm is Brian Burnett.
THE POLITICAL ATTACKS BEGAN
During the 2016 Bernalillo County Commissioner election the Santolina project became the main topic, and candidates were viciously attacked by interest groups connected to a political action comittee called New Mexicans for New Mexico (NMNM). Steven Michael Quezada won this election. The Albuquerque Free Press did a story covering this, and the Treasurer of that PAC was Donna Madrid. Donna claimed in that article that she wanted to elect someone who would bring jobs as seen in this quote.
“I’m tired of those with good jobs saying we don’t need jobs in our community. Why Santolina funds? I know Santolina wants leaders who are job friendly, so I asked for them to contribute to help candidates that I want to create jobs.”
Remember this, because it is just one example of where ones words do not correspond to their actions, or to a feasible plan.

The New Mexico Political Report also did stories on this and you can see them below…

Please read the above articles and all links posted, because it will reinforce your understanding as we go along.
As the Santolina Building plan moves through approval phases, we are now moving to elect a new Mayor in one of the most important mayors, races we have ever seen in this city, and now the attacks are coming again. While everyone has been distracted by the infighting with the Republicans, the real treachery is going down right in front of everyone's faces. Those responsible have just used variations of their names to conceal, their connections, but we found out who they are, and it is not good. You see, this is why the populace are considered sheep. This is why most politicians are able to manipulate people. This is why they are arrogant.
Just as many citizens, employees, and others are crossing party lines to get the best candidate elected, the Democrats seem to be doing something way more dishonorable, and nefarious in the name of money and greed.
SNIPING FROM COVER
Out of the blue last week a political attack was launched in the form of an ad attacking Mayoral front runner Tim Keller. This ad was all about his voting for a Bill, that if had passed would have prevented legal complications for local municipalities in reference to enforcing sex offender laws.
The state AG favored the bill, saying that failing to pass, it could result in local governments adopting exclusionary zones restrictions that could open them up to legal challenges.
The Sex Offender Management Board, responsible for making recommendations to the state Sentencing Commission for managing sex offenders, supported the bill too. The general consensus was that “Imposing blanket restrictions has had a destabilizing impact in every jurisdiction where it has been implemented, and most experts believe that it is dangerous and counterproductive,”
Tim Keller responded to this Political Action Committees attempt to manipulate and defraud the public with the below statement…..
“As a father of two young children, it is absolutely offensive to suggest that I would let anyone harm our kids, let alone make life easier for those who do,” Keller said in a news release. “What the attacks don’t tell you is that as a senator, I fought for and passed the nation’s strongest sex offender laws to date, and as auditor have been a champion for public safety and tackling the rape kit backlog.
Since then, several victim groups have come out to support Keller, and denounce the attack as a bogus, baseless, and without merit. This attempt backfired in the faces of those responsible, as seen in the below quote.
“[Tim] is a champion for sexual assault survivors. He is focused on public safety and ensuring accountability among the agencies responsible for fixing the problem.” - Connie Monahan, statewide coordinator for SANE and co-chair of the state Sexual Assault Evidence Kits Memorial Task Force.
WHERE THE SNIPER CONNECTIONS ORIGINATE
Sometimes you just have to watch the smiling guy in the corner a little closer. When there is utter chaos in a cutthroat race, and you are number two or three, and you are just sitting there giving the perception that your hands are cleaner than the Virgin Mary, you just have to think… Why? When Dan Lewis and Wayne Johnson are kicking the piss out of each other daily, along with going at their democratic rivals, Brian Colon has been a little quiet. But what we say is why be quiet when you are number two or three. It just defies tactics…. UNLESS an unconventional third party is willing to do your work for you in order to keep your hands clean, and this is where you need to pay attention.
BACK AZIMUTH DETECTION TECHNIQUE, AND THE VALUE IN MULTIPLE REFERENCE POINTS TO COME TO ONE POINT OF ORIGIN
There is a technique used to identify an enemy snipers position, called the back azimuth detection technique, where one inserts a dowel, or rod into the bullet hole, noting the angle of trajectory to estimate the range, then recording it’s reverse azimuth to determine the direction from which the shot was fired.
As Keller was attacked by what turned out to be a benign add, that was eventually snuffed out by the truth, because of it’s trumped dramatics, and lies that could have swayed those uneducated on the true reason the bill was voted for, we looked at just who launched this add, did some digging and investigative work, and found out it was launched by a Political Action Committee called MAKE ALBUQUERQUE SAFE. This PAC, like the one (NMNM) in the BernCo Commissioners election popped up just as quickly, and suspiciously launching attacks before anyone knew who they were or who was donating to them. That was until now.
Make Albuquerque Safe was formed on 8/29/17. The Treasurer is none other than Donna Taylor… Donna Madrid-Taylor. The same Donna that used her Madrid last name for the NMNM PAC that attacked anti-Santolina County Commission Candidates.
Donna Madrid-Taylor is listed as a paralegal for the Jason Alarid Law firm. The monkey business here that raised our suspicions was when we found out that a possible relative of Alarid, Vanessa Alarid, is a lobbyist that was hired by Barclays Bank of London to sell Santolina to us all through our politicians. She is the primary lobbyist for Santolina. Not only that, but Vanessa Alarid is married to Antonio “Moe” Maestas who is a Democratic member of New Mexico State House of Representatives. And do you want to guess what district Moe represents? You don’t have to, because we’ll tell you. Moe represents District 16 which covers the West Mesa of Albuquerque. Why use two last names… unless you do not want people to pick up on the connections? Just our thoughts.
Notice the two different last names on her career networking profiles below....
Moe and Vanessa...
The Albuquerque Free Press AGAIN did another article on the impact of Santolina fiscally on Albuquerque, and we advise you to read it below:
ABQ FREE PRESS FOOLS GOLD SANTOLINA STORY
Is this the motivation behind the attacks on Keller? We think so.
The connections just don’t end there. Back in 2007 Brian Colon decided to run for Chairman of the Democratic State Committee against Michael Olguin. Governor Richardson appeared to remain neutral in support, but Brian colon made no bones about two things back then…..
Being very proud of raising $56,000 for Richardson’s campaign at the Sandia Casino, and being what he called himself… The New Generation of Democrat, which is another name for progressive. He was also supported by the progressive wing of the political party, and was heavily aligned with Antonio Moe Maestas. There ya go people.
Joe Monahan did an article on this and you can read the details there…

DEMOCRATS BETRAYING DEMOCRATS VIA THIRD PARTY SNIPERS FOR BIG MONEY CORPORATE DEVELOPER INTERESTS AGAIN
If you look at what we have here it is people claiming to be Democrats, looking out for jobs for people, but who are only in it for the short run to make a profit, and they could care less about the long term. Is taking water away from out South Valley people looking out for Albuquerque? Read the below article from Las Acequias…..
LAS ACEQUIAS SOUTH VALLEY SANTOLINA THREAT STORY LINK
Some of contributors to the NMNM PAC were below:
Rodey Law firm gave $25,000
Jeff Garrett of Western ABQ Land Holdings LLC Gave $5,000
Bohannon Huston CEO gave $10,000
The above are all democrats, or democratically affiliated. The difference here is that Colon Supports Santolina, but Keller does not. People connected to Colons political friends are behind the attacks coming at Keller…. All over sprawling developer interests.
We hear that Colon expects support from those he does things for, and we are sure this goes the other way too, but this is just plain disturbing.
Colon has claimed that he was not involved in any of the things, or the investigation into former governor Richardson’s pay to play investigation, and that he was never even interviewed, but he was the Democratic Committee Chair Person during the time in question, and he was not the one who called for an investigation either. Let's see him try to flip flop again, like he did with firing police chief Eden, when it comes time to make his stance, since people have accused Keller of being an extreme Progressive when in all actuality he is very grounded and willing to just do the right thing.
As we see it, Brian Colon is in a very sticky situation here as Santolina interests infest this election as it did the BernCo. election last year, with the same characters behind the shenanigans.
He is in an even stickier one after seeing the below video.
If 40,000 $200,000 homes are built in Santolina, that amounts to $8,000,000.
You do the math. We know the motivation.
SELLING OUT THE BARRIO
Here is the deal folks. Brian Colon is benefitting from an attack ad being driven by Santolina supporters and personal friends of his. While everyone seems to be distracted by the fights between Lewis and Johnson, the real fact is that the Colon camp has come at Keller with a knife.
And we thought Berry was bad…

“I like chicken a lot because chicken is generous - that is to say, it's obedient. It will do whatever you tell it to do.” Maya AngelouWell folks, we here at the Eye are just flabbergasted. The hits just keep coming. We did not know there was some kind of Homosexual agenda going on. You see, we are all human beings, and most of our agendas are to survive, and be free from attacks, prejudice, hostility or ignorance, based on our ethnicity, color, religion, creed, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. That includes the survival, and fair treatment of our families, friends and everyone around us. We here at the Eye take that one step further by dealing with the bullies who attack people base on the above categories, or for that matter attack, and bully ANYONE in our own special way.
We have seen the smiling faces of candidates who put up fronts in our lifetimes during election time, in order to get what they want, while at times knowing the truth about how these people really are, but this election may just pan out to be most epic in that category. There was recently an article written about Dan Lewis in the Albuquerque Journal titled Pastor: Lewis won’t support homosexual agenda. This article discusses Legacy Church’s endorsement of Dan Lewis for mayor by the church pastor Steve Smotherman. The article came with a quote stating “I wholeheartedly support Dan Lewis for mayor. He’s the one true believer in the race, and could never in anyway support the homosexual agenda,” Smothermon posted on his Instagram account recently. “He will bring business to our city and he will reduce crime.” WTF IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? You can see the article here:
JOURNAL LEGACY CHURCH PASTOR ARTICLE LINK
Newsflash for you shitweeds… There are millions of LGBT business owners, executives, investors, and workers who do not want to live in a place where turds think like this, or is governed by a mayor who says one thing, and does the other behind their backs.
Maybe Dan and Steve would like to chime in, and explain what their concept of a “homosexual agenda” is, because it appears we are seeing the real Dan Lewis come out in these gaffs, flubs, and slip ups.
We all know that the pastor to Legacy Church had supported Berry in his bid to get elected, and is not foreign to a homophobic way of thought, as he demonstrated back in 2012 when he ran his mouth about the governor hiring a gay gentleman to the state Public Regulation Commission as seen here:
2012 LEGACY CHURCH PASTOR ARTICLE
Folks, this does not only just go back starting at 2012. No. This type of thought process comes with piss poor upbringing. The same exact verbiage from 2012 was used in what brought this to light… AGAIN!
Notice how Dan Lewis did not turn down this offer of support, and we have not seen any condemnation of this type of talk either. As a matter of fact, this church is known to be very politically active, and has supported those in this administration. How about that?!? There is another church in this country that thinks like this called Westboro Baptist Church folks. Please tell us we do not have our own little Westboro right here in Albuquerque.
Our question is: What was said between these two to elicit this statement by Smotherman?
HMMMMMMMMM…… WE WONDER.
What say you Dan? Since we are all in a voting state of mind, yay or nay? Come on. It’s a lose lose either way, but this time it’s all your doing, especially with this little gem we snatched off of the interwebs Facebook, as you snubbed Equality New Mexico.
You see, if you are true and honest, there is no pretentiousness, no facade that is put up that we have to see right through. There is no keeping track of your stories. There are no slip ups or insults to the intelligence of those who know better. There is none of this when intentions are honest and pure. Nobody likes to be snubbed, and the last week has spoken volumes. Chickenshit comes to mind when we see good people attacked, and the real personalities behind the politicians come out.
20,000 votes makes one beholden to a hate monger, and if that hate monger wants a hand in politics so much, then he obviously does not understand what separation of church and state is, and needs to pay taxes on all of those tidings.
To our LGBT readers…. Feel free to discuss in the comments section what this agenda stuff is all about with these two clowns. You seem to have them terrified.
Enjoy the campaign tailspin.
From time to time, the Eye puts up guest writings concerning matters important to what is going on. The below writing was submitted by Dennis Maez. In case you do not know Dennis, let us tell you that he was the man, who through his hard work, and commitment to what is right, exposed that his grandson was wrongfully charged in a murder case involving APD. Dennis spent 30 years in law enforcement, and is a well respected, retired federal agent of the Secret Service who retired as a Special Agent In Charge. He is also an Albuquerque business owner.
Below is his opinion on the state of affairs concerning the election, and the plans of our mayoral candidates.
Comparison of the Keller, Colon, Lewis and Johnson crime mitigation plans and APD changes:
I’ve always been a “big picture” guy, and not much for the bits and pieces when it comes to issues. When I was SAIC and ASIC with the feds, I would let the supervisors that worked with me know what the “plan” was, then let them get to work and get it done. I did not micro-manage supervisors, because my thoughts were; if you have to micro-manage the supervisors that work for you, then you probably made a mistake in making them supervisors. But for this little exercise I’m going to get into the weeds, and make some comparisons, then give my two cents on what I think, because I’m the one writing this little gem.
I printed out each “plan” and am going off of what is written on their web sites, and the comments made by each of the four candidates. I don’t spend every waking moment following these guys around like a puppy, so if they’ve added parts to their plan that’s not on their web sites, and stuff I haven’t heard, those additions won’t be included in this little analysis.
The reason I didn’t include Garcia-Holmes, Chaves, Pedrotty and Wheeler-Deichel is because I don’t think they have a realistic chance of making a runoff, much less a first vote win. I’ve only commented on parts of these plans, that I think are the most important. The reason I did this was to try and focus the conversation to what I think is important, which are the issues, and not all the BS about who’s getting what money, and from whom and how. I surely wouldn’t get too wound about the Keller “in kind” issue, because from what I’m told there’s a lot more to come out on that deal, (like his campaign got a legal opinion before they did what they did), and the ethics complainant will have some answering of his own to do soon on some of his contributions. Anyway,,,,,, about the “plans.”
Tim Keller, Dan Lewis and Wayne Johnson have said from the beginning of their campaigns that they will replace the current Chief and Command Staff. Brian Colon, at first said he would wait until he was elected, then meet with Chief Eden before saying he would get a new Chief. Brian told me that he has since met with Chief Eden, and as a result of that meeting he will definitely replace him with a new Chief. Brian’s explanation for his wanting to meet Eden before deciding was sincere, and after hearing his rationale I believe he did the right thing for himself, Brian. Everyone else can make up their own mind on that.
I didn’t see a time frame for a new Chief for Lewis, Johnson or Keller after they were to take office, Colon states that he will hire a new APD Chief within 60 day or taking office.
Manpower & APD staffing:
• Brian Colon’s plan states he will have 1200 sworn APD officers within 30 months of taking office.
• Tim Keller’s plan states he will have 1000 sworn APD officers within 24 months of taking office.
• Wayne Johnson’s plan states “we will need to fully staff the Albuquerque Police Department in order to sustain a secure environment.” There is no time frame given, and the budget now calls for 1000 sworn.
• Dan Lewis plans states he will have a “fully staffed” department. Again, I think that’s 1000 sworn but gave no time frame given.
As much as I’d like to see the APD have 1200 fully trained, highly qualified and highly paid officers the fact is that isn’t going to happen for many years. The goal of 1200 officers seems impossible to attain in 30 months, or 48 months for that matter. With the factors in play that the new Mayor will be dealing with on day one, such as the DOJ, a department in transition until a permanent Chief and Command Staff are on board and functioning, and not having an infrastructure to recruit, hire and train large numbers, having 1200 cops in total within even three years I just don’t think is a reality. Even if there were sufficient numbers of qualified applicants, the police academy isn’t geared at this point to handle and train more than three recruit classes a year, which I believe is their current rate. The average is 30 officers graduating per class. Keep in mind that based on attrition in APD in 2015, and 2016 if the same pattern holds for the next few years, there would need to be 500 officers hired to hit a staffing level of 1200 sworn. For ’15 and ’16 there was a combined total of approximately 150 sworn that left for retirement, other departments, or “other” reasons. If you do the math it just doesn’t seem that Mr. Colon’s goal is realistic.
I looked over his plan, and frankly didn’t see any immediate solutions that would be effective in working to get more cops on the streets immediately. The longer term goals are reasonable like, “Strengthen staffing levels of the Narcotics Unit, Burglary Unit, and Area Command Impact Teams to address unique crime concerns for different parts of the city, including a stronger presence in our schools, and improved safety for Albuquerque women.” Another quote “To be a truly Safe City, the Colón Administration will devote the time, effort, and resources necessary to truly embrace effective community policing in the City of Albuquerque.”
Increasing the detective units is a great idea, but with not enough officers now to handle calls that are stacked up I just don’t see where officers would come from to be able to move more sworn into the detective units, until the PD is fully staffed. I agree with Brian that embracing community policing is necessary, but again, I don’t think this is a viable option until there are enough officers to make community policing an option, now and for the foreseeable future.
Disclaimer- My analysis of Mr. Lewis and his plans are tainted so take it for what every you think it’s worth. The reason my analysis is tainted is simple. Dan Lewis has been a City Councilor for 5-6 years (?) and to me it seems like he just woke up recently and discovered that the City has a crime problem, and the APD has a leadership crisis. Now I know that as a councilor, he called for the replacement of Chief Schultz, and I guess that had merit at the time, but I’m more interested about what he’s done or hasn’t done about the current APD leadership, and to my recollection, he hasn’t called for Eden’s resignation, or a council vote of confidence on either Eden or Berry.
I think any city official who sat on their hands, while the situation has been allowed to get to the stage it is has been a part of the problem, and definitely not a part of the solution past, or in the future. It seems to me Lewis should have been screaming at every council meeting that the ship was sinking, and it needed drastic changes. Maybe he did, and I just didn’t hear about it, but if he did he should have been screaming louder, and banging on the table to get more people’s attention.
Also, the Lewis plan has a couple of things that I think are just plain pandering to the voters. Mr. Lewis states that he will pull all APD officers out of DOJ taskforces until “they (the DOJ) comply with the same CASA requirements APD officers have to comply with.” He thinks the feds should wear body cameras, maybe they should, but good luck with that one. Maybe if Mr. Lewis, and his fellow councilors would have shown more leadership in the past, there wouldn’t have been a need for the CASA requirements in the first place! His response has been, “I’m just a councilor”, my response is, and you should have been a vocal leader screaming about the direction crime was going, and the bad leadership at APD, as well as a councilor. Also, from a practical standpoint, taking APD out of federal task forces doesn’t make sense from a law enforcement standpoint, no matter the reason. That’s just bad policing, period.
This seems to be the ONLY plan that has any immediate solutions for dealing with the current crime problem. The Keller plan has the long term solutions that are similar to the Colon plan, but the short term solutions are more defined, and actually are there.
Some of Keller’s short term solutions:
1. Get rid of the Major rank, and evaluate each non-field services assignment to get more officers in the field. One example he gives is having one civilian, and one sworn PIO only.
2. Add the rank of Corporal and Senior Sergeant, to incentivize officers, and reward senior patrolmen, and long serving Sergeants.
3. Have officers not assigned to Field Services on a rotating basis work in the field, in uniform to supplement Field Services officers, until more cops are hired. This adds immediate numbers or officers in the Field to make sure officers have more security for themselves, and quicker response times to citizen calls. Nothing, nothing is more important than making sure that there are enough street officers, when they are responding to high priority, violent crimes, to cover each other, and not making citizens wait for hours, when they need a police officer.
4. Partner with the other agencies to “develop a multi-agency Safe Streets Task Force for targeting high-crime areas with saturation enforcement. The interim chief should immediately meet with the local heads of federal law enforcement agencies; the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, the Sandoval County Sheriff’s Office, the Valencia County Sheriff’s Office, and the State Police commands serving central New Mexico. We must recognize that criminals don’t pay attention to jurisdictional boundaries. Our crime problem demands a cross-jurisdictional approach. The more we can coordinate with our local partners, the better positioned we will be to root out organized criminal activity. Cross-jurisdictional collaboration will be a huge force multiplier. If each agency were to assign just two individuals to this task force, and cross-commission officers, they would be able to saturate high-crime hotspots anywhere in the metro area.”
5. More from his plan. “We will enforce quality of life ordinances regarding liter, public defecation, intoxication, vandalism, and others designed to make public spaces safe again. By enforcing what some would consider minor laws, police can establish a proactive presence in troubled neighborhoods, to send a signal to criminals to get out of the area. We will follow up with saturation patrols in all areas on a random basis, which catch criminals off guard. This method seeks to eradicate criminal activity in high priority areas, and will be employed as a near-term strategy to lower crime rates, and make neighborhoods safer, while the department staffs up.”
The folks who say that this philosophy targets minority, and low income citizens should talk to the folks who live in those “low income and minority” neighborhoods. The good folks in those neighborhoods are begging to get more officers in their neighborhoods, to stop the thugs that prey on their lives. Frankly I’m surprised that any Democrat would advocate for what is basically the Broken Windows policy.
My thoughts about Mr. Johnson are similar to those of Mr. Lewis. Where have you been as an elected official Mr. Johnson, did you just notice the problems in the city and with APD? The one thing I will say about Johnson is that he isn’t as off base as Lewis, (in my humble opinion) in some of his long term strategies, but as with Colon, and Lewis I don’t see any immediate “solutions.” The solutions he proposes are to fire Chief Eden, hire more officers and re-negotiate the CASA with the DOJ. Although I do think (and hope) under the new Attorney General the mandate’s put forth by the Obama AG will not be as stringent, but, the policy proposed by Johnson is more of what we currently have with the current Chief and Command Staff at APD. Simply put, an adversarial relationship with the DOJ will only keep the DOJ in ABQ longer. It seems Mr. Johnson wants to keep the bickering and non-compliance between the APD and DOJ going into the future. At least Colon and Keller want to do what is needed to get the DOJ out of the APD, and start moving forward.
This is a comment I put on the Eye’s Facebook page last week dealing with the DOJ:
“I've been around a long time, 30 years active carrying a gun and badge, and I've been around a lot of police departments both in the US and around the World. To this day I still work with police departments around the country and in Latin America as a consultant, and one thing I know for sure, is even with all the problems with this department it still has great officers that go to work every day and want to be able to be professional and protect the public. Every cop I've talked to here in ABQ that want to do the right thing, but, they are demoralized to the point that many are counting the days they can get on with another agency or retire. Comments like those of Mr. Harness don't help. To the police officers in ABQ, and their families and friends, please strongly evaluate the candidates for Mayor, read the information that is posted in places like the The Eye On Albuquerque, and be smart on who you support. One of two things will happen in the next few months, this city will elect a Mayor who will make the changes that are needed, or one of the candidates who will keep things the same will be elected, and the situation will get worse. Don't let those who scream about the DOJ and the CASA be a distraction, a lot of departments that have been in the same situation have survived the DOJ, and have come out the back end better, and stronger than ever. Candidates that support the DOJ CASA reforms are not necessarily enemies of the street cops, or the Department. It will take a strong Chief to educate the next Mayor about the way to take advantage of the CASA to benefit the department as a whole, and the street officers in particular. It can be done. The big issues for some, is the DOJ use of force standards and reporting. Turn those issues to your advantage, by showing when you handcuff the police you need more police to get the job done to make police officers safer on the streets, because criminals become emboldened. More highly paid, highly trained officers, and more show of strength will result in less incidents where bad guys will take on the police, which will mean less confrontation. And for those who make the mistake of taking on the cops, well, big mistakes result in big consequences. A strong pro-APD Mayor and Chief that will stand up for the officers will make this department one of the best in the Country, again. Hopefully better days are coming.”
The election isn’t far off, it really is time for us to stop with all the cursing and name calling, blah, blah and get down to looking at these folks, to see who’d do the right thing for the city and the PD. The rest is weeds, it’s time to get out of the weeds.

Holy Shit folks. Let the games begin.
The last couple weeks of the election trail here in Albuquerque has been an example of what has been going on for years, and what put this place in the situation it is in. We all know how politics can get, but New Mexico politics is probably one of the more slimy nationally. Those here would rather see failure, than to put their ego aside for the common good, and they will do anything they need to get what they want.
Last week we saw Albuquerque reporter Chris Huffman Montalban Smith Jones Chan Nikolai Ramirez do a surprise article on Keller donations over in kind donations that there is no ruling on, and which are documented. It is interesting to note how McCleskey was on the grand jury investigative hook for a long time, but no surprise visit interview was done there. A point to remember was that this reporter used to work for Berry. Those donations are legal, and unlike the criminal actions of this administration, and their political supporters, millions were not lost in lawsuits, nobody was defrauded, nobody lied about it, the record of all of it is there, no employees or citizens were railroaded to cover it up, and nobody lied when the issue came up. It is all documented. Good luck getting documents from this administration, or the millions lost to their malfeasance.
There were also many people going around citing the KOB and KRQE polls as the first numbers out on public opinion on candidates. That isn't the case either. There was also a poll in the Albuquerque Business Journal weekly. Keller won that poll, but it seems some very odd things are going on with these polls, as they are shut down early.
ABQ BIZ JOURNAL SURVEY
Recently, the KRQE poll conducted last night after the Mayoral Debate was shut down before the twenty four hour mark even hit. If you read the comments, you can see some accusations, and we have received a few complaints here. Lets hope this is not the case. There will be no change electing someone who is just a Berry 2.0, or someone who is tied to Schultz by their balls. That is a fact.
KRQE MAYORAL DEBATE POLL
We here at the Eye feel that there are some very sincere people in this election. We also feel there are some wolves in hamster clothing who are in it for financial gain, political drag, to hook up their cronies, and to fill their pockets, while feathering their nest for the future on the backs of our citizens and employees. You will see things play out very soon in reference to all of those who are in it for the wrong reasons, because the unjust can not help themselves. Keep your eyes peeled for the usual antics of finger pointing, and attacks from those with their own back yards full of garbage. Look for the crying and playing of victim too, because they are all traits of the current administration’s culture.
What is worse? Representing filth, and standing like a man, saying yes I did that, or representing someone, and denying that person to distance yourself from them, because it does not look favorable for your campaign? It really does not matter, because we bet the representation of Ray Schultz was never officially ended, meaning that if Ray needs an attorney, Colon’s firm would represent him. Not only that, but Ray Schultz’s long time BFF Nate Korn, who owns Kauffman’s West Army Navy donated $800 to Brian Colon’s campaign. No surprise there! It is funny how these self preserving / serving individuals will flip flop any which way they have to in order to benefit their agenda. We all know how imbalanced, unfair, and outright crooked the NEW MEXICO LAW ENFORCEMENT ACADEMY BOARD WAS under Korn. We all knew that there was an unexplainable amount of disparate punitive measures laid out on anyone who Schultz deemed a target to be revoked, or retaliated against, and the proof is there to stand it up. One assistant AG had resigned over tampering with cases, along with other hearing officers over the conduct going on up there. We all know that Nate Korn buys in when it benefits Nate Korn and this sends a clearer message that Colon is allied with those connected with Schultz.
One last thing. Today through social media, we found out that Dan Lewis’s own Turf is supporting Tim Keller in the election. Yesterday it was announced that ABQWest Chamber of Commerce is endorsing Tim Keller. You can read it above. Now that folks is a kick in the balls.
Most every union and association in the state seems to be behind Tim Keller. We will wait, and see what the APOA does in the near future, considering who they will be supporting. From our Eyes in the field, we know that most of the officers with APD are supporting Tim Keller. Our Eyes are telling us there is much wavering over possible money issues, and personal promises made, but Keller laid it out as opposed to the others. Things will be negotiated, and he will support our officers so that they can do their job under a just, and not corrupted administration. No lies like Berry told, but admitting there will be raises.
As for the rumored attacks coming down the pipeline… we will be watching closely, and observing for the usual suspects, along with their motives, and where these snipes are originating from, because you are going to see the same creeps who stood by while this administration burned down the barn, twist words, manipulate circumstances, and flat out lie to make it look like someone ate a chicken egg that wasn't theirs. Remember the difference between what something looks like, and what it is, because all of these attack traits can be seen in this administration.
We are looking forward to a new administration, and an end to this back biting, candy ass, horse shit, and it will be nice when we have positive things to say for a change.
Below is a social media release from Keller we picked up from the net.
Sep 8, 2017
HA HA HA…
There is nothing like seeing results from the dissemination of information about corrupt dealings. For weeks we have been hearing about chosen employees within this filthy administration being shuttled into protected positions, so that the next administration is yoked with problems from the past.
Back in July we did a story about resident toilet bowl ring TJ Wilhelm who was in the process of being set up with a protected position as this administration prepares for the evacuation of Hanoi. Well, the administration went right ahead, and did it anyway, like the imbeciles they are. They not only did that, but they did worse. You would think with the light on these idiots they would quit the antics. Not these idiots. No, not these stupid jackasses. They say insanity is the act of doing something over and over expecting a different result. These jackholes make an art out of that. Even criminals are smart enough that when they get told HEY ASSHOLES, WE KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING, they stop doing it, or change their methods. Not these turds. Is it stupidity? Is it desperation? We do not know, but we are enjoying the show, because it is entertaining.
You see, our Eyes within have told us that TJ Wilhelm was admitted to a training program put on for police commanders, and APD Lieutenants were denied this training so he could go. This was at a cost of $4000.00 each.
Caleb James from KOB did a good story on this political appointees promotion from an at will position, to a protected position. Our Eyes are telling us that the job was posted, but people were skipped for the position so good old BLOATED water boy TJ could be shoe horned, wedged, towed, craned, airlifted, greased, parachuted or whatever else it takes to get someone or something like this into the position they wanted him in. You can see the story here…..
KOB RTCC TJ WILHELM PROMOTION STORY LINK
All of this was going on while the same exact scheme was being pulled for Berry’s little gem Dayna Crawford. Mrs. Crawford was an at will mayor’s communications director, and director of ABQ RIDE, but coincidentally was recently given a permanent position… but for this princess… the job position was changed to a protected position. Aren’t these clowns tricky?
KRQE DAYNA CRAWFORD PROMOTION STORY LINK
Well, now the Albuquerque Inspector General is conducting an investigation into what the hell is going on here, because it is obvious that the water carriers are being taken care of.
See the story here:
KOB UNPROTECTED TO PROTECTED STORY LINK
Let's hope the IG does a better investigation than his office did with the Dan Lewis / Desert fuels contract we wrote on here:
EYE LEWIS ARTICLE
ANOTHER EYE LEWIS ARTICLE
And so went the big freak out when this filthy, dirty, biased administration found out that word of all of their jackassery got out and the media was on it. Red Faced Rob Perry apparently tried to get the stories squashed, and the back-peddling began, along with the sweats and cases of the shit the pants, with a little of the old “let's start an investigation into how this got out, so we can retaliate,” in other words, more business as usual, as this administration continues with their stupidity, burdening the next administration with toxic spillover sure to pollute progress in December.
When are they going to learn that we will be making this hard for them every single day until their worthless asses are out the door. Even then, it’s not over till we say it is over.
Of course, today the Urinal gives this administration an unchallenged forum to respond with more horse shit. You can see the article below, and believe us, it is a challenge in self control to not explode over the response. Of course the nutless sack of a mayor we have didn’t respond. The response came from his anus in the form of an alcohol soaked fart. Read it below:
ABQ URINAL ARTICLE WITH PERRY RUNNING OFF AT THE MOUTH
“For eight years now, we’ve held ourselves and our management team to the highest ethical standards, and we don’t appreciate anyone impugning that,” Perry told the Journal late Thursday.
Our response: Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaa...
Oh boy as if we didn't need any more proof the administration of this city is lead by drunk, delusional, undiagnosed Sociopaths. We don't even need to address That quote, because our blog is full of evidence proving otherwise.
Well, Mister Perry we don’t appreciate you assholes impugning our entire city.
Sep 6, 2017
Back in February, we did a writing about our reasons why Brian Colon Should not be mayor. You can see it here:
Eye Vote no for Brian Colon article link
Since then, many have come out with the same feelings about this, and now Brian Colon supporters are putting their feet in their collective mouths by trying to distance Colon from the law firm he works for and is proud of, by playing word semantics. This is another form of horse shitting the voters. Essentially, Colon supporters are trying to fit their square peg into a round hole, and they are insulting your intelligence in doing so, so we again reiterate DO NOT VOTE FOR BRIAN COLON FOR MAYOR OF ALBUQUERQUE.
We advise our readers to check out Joe Monahan’s blog where the conflict is pointed out perfectly. See it here:
Joe Monahan Colon Article
In the “Clashing over Colon” section of Monahan’s article posted on 9/6/17, you can see the video link of Colon schmoozing the APOA at their meet and greet with mayoral candidates.
Contained in Monahan’s blog entry is the quote below, and it came directly from the mouth of Colon himself while addressing the Albuquerque Police Officer’s Association. What we have a problem with is the corporate white collar contracts his associates and employers are involved in which is the same old same old ala Schultz, Perry, Berry style of enrichment through public office connections. As the saying goes… you can't pick your family, but you can pick your friends and Colon picked his friends.
“Those of you who know me know that I have built a career at Robles, Rael and Anaya. That name is familiar to you because that’s the law firm that stands besides officers when they are in their deepest and darkest days. When they are involved in use of force cases, our law firm has stood tall by them. I’ve got some competitors that like to use that against me and say that my firm has stood with law enforcement when they’ve shot innocent Albuquerque citizens. I wear this as a badge of honor."
Some people will say anything to get what they want. What is amusing here is that Colon’s own people see his connections as a liability and problem, so much so that they are trying to distance him from something he sees as a badge of honor. We wonder what he will be saying to the citizens who disagree with his affiliations and his dealings with Luis Robles, who defends Ray Schultz, and benefits from lucrative contracts from this administration to keep the status quo.
Back in March we did a writing about Colon’s flip flopping over firing or keeping Gorden Eden. You can see it here:
EYE COLON FLIP FLOP ARTICLE
There is no doubt that this guy is a horse shit artist, who will say anything to get what he wants. Here we have another self server connected with the same people responsible for wrecking the place. This house needs to be cleaned, and that means denying access to the people responsible, and the ones behind the scenes pulling the strings. This can be accomplished by giving a snowball’s chance in hell to these fakes.
If Colon has such pride in New Mexico, ask him why his kid goes to college in another state. Other candidates are raising, or have raised their children here.
DID WE SAY DO NOT VOTE FOR BRIAN COLON IN OCTOBER?
Below are current Albuquerque Mayoral candidate standings as per the KRQE poll.
We are not having the lies, double talk and broken promises this time around folks. Either be strait up, or get strait out!
Sep 5, 2017
As if there was any doubt that this administration protects and rewards minions who lie for them, here is just one more gem that is sure to set you off like a bottle rocket.
Many have been wondering where little mijo Fred Duran would end up. You know Fred. He was the APD information officer caught making shit up about there being some fictitious investigation being conducted by people he could not name concerning Victoria Martens. There never was such an investigation, and now they are all circling the wagons. They got caught.
Anyone that has been around for a while knows how it works with guys like this. They are either crucified as being rogue, and thrown under the bus, or they are told to take it in the ass, keep their mouth shut, and they will be rewarded after the shitstorm passes over.
Well, from the looks of it, little Fred took option two.
You can see in the above memo dated August 31, 2017, that effective September 2nd Freddy is transferred to the APD traffic unit DWI enforcement unit. He will have three days off including a Sunday. Not too shabby, considering the officers in this unit make mounds of money. So in essence, this clown just went from one tit to the other… banking the whole way. How is that for Mayor Berry and Gorden Eden’s response to Dishonesty and transparency? Everyone knows this type of an assignment is a reward. That is where two other problem children we wrote about were sent too.
As we have been saying all along, the Feds need to be the ones conducting investigations and interviews of these malfeasance liars, because when you lie to them, you either get to roll on the rest of the dirt bags to avoid prison, or you just go to prison. Either way, it’s a win win.
The sad thing about this is that a child is dead. The death of that child could have been prevented, and morally depraved cowards lied about it in order to protect themselves. If this is not a betrayal to the oath a police officer swears to, Houston was just a sun shower.
We here at the Eye would like to know how these gutless cowards look their families in the face every day.
It is September 5th 2017, and today we get news that the Albuquerque Free Press is struggling to survive. Do you know what this is? It is a disgrace.
Would be sponsors and advertisers would like this hard hitting newspaper, that tells it like it is to tone it down, and be less confrontational. Well, we say fuck that shit. This administration would love nothing more than to see it go away. No! This administration needs to go away.
Here we have had a news outlet, that over the last few years has exposed more lies and corruption within this administration, while the Albuquerque Urinal (Journal) has given them free pass after free pass. The Albuquerque Free Press has leveled the playing field, despite being cutoff by this lying filthy administration at all costs. If just half of the work, dedication, and truth had been put into this city by those in charge, as has been by the writers and editor of the Free Press in how they do their jobs, we would not have a city in shambles. The reward for that is the mealymouth response of oh, you are too confrontational. Give us a fucking break. This is the problem here folks. You do not fight someone swinging a baseball bat with a feather duster, and the problem plaguing our city is the pussy responses, or lack of any response to the actions of those responsible for ruining the place, and lack of a spine in backing those willing to stand up and crush them. This is exemplified by the backing of a candidate who works for the law firm representing Raymond D. Schultz in a criminal investigation against him, by our Attorney General, who is supposed to be conducting that investigation, and yes we are talking about Balderas and Colon. The political pattycake punk games are getting old. Again, we urge everyone to walk away from Colon in this election, because there is no room for the “we are going to run this state” creep mentality for the future of things here. A vote for Colon is another vote for a Poindexter, who will take care of Schultz’s people, and continue this mess.
As this city has been destroyed, and fed shit by a bought and owned newspaper like the Urinal, everyone has complimented the Free Press on their work and bluntness. Well it is time to step up. Anyone who holds contempt for bluntness is a coward, and lacks a spine. That is the way we see it. If you can not take the truth, you are either the problem, the one lying about it, or BOTH, like Celina Espinosa, Fred Duran and Gorden Eden. Everyone reading this can thank The Free Press over there, along with others, who stayed on the asses of the lizards within this administration for the truth coming out for Victoria Martens. You didn't think a kiss could take down a police department did ya?! We apologize to lizards for the insult.
There is no way in hell a media outlet like the Albuquerque Free Press should be starving in such a target rich environment. The other reason for the mess in our city (besides this administration) is the same reason for the situation the Free Press is in. Everyone wants to enjoy the show, but nobody wants to get their hands dirty while drinking their big fat cup of New Mexico apathy.
Just think of all of the stories reported on by the Free Press that would not have gotten out with the level of facts that they did, from the grandson of Dennis Maes who was wrongfully charged by Detective Gonterman, to the Victoria Martens case, to the Jackassery of Jessica Tyler.
For the Albuquerque Free Press, we have this to say to you. Hang in there. We have no recommendations for a better publication, because you are taking care of business quite appropriately. The problem lies with the lack of a spine in people that need to get off the fence, and stand for what is right. The other problem lies within a criminal enterprise of an administration that makes businesses feel intimidated to buy advertisement space in a newspaper critical of criminal activity within a corrupted, cowardly, and vindictive administration, that would without a doubt retaliate against them, like Berry did to Joy Junction homeless shelter founder, Jeremy Reynolds. The citizens, and homeless of Albuquerque have the Free Press to thank for this travesty being righted, because the Free Press broke the story outting Berry and his liars once again. You can read the articles below, and see for yourself where Berry is once again called out, and caught lying and retaliating, then calling it all a misunderstanding, and miscommunication as usual. And as usual Berry was “out of town” AGAIN when the decision was made to screw Jeremy Reynolds, and our homeless population this Thanksgiving. Even though that is a lie too, it shows what brazen nutless sacks, and filth these cowards really are. Again, if you focus on the problem, this is an administration famous for it’s extortion tactics and this is the root issue here. We would ask the Free Press to hang on till after this election because if the right person gets in everything changes and that means the attitude of fear of reprisals for backing the truth. IPRA ANY AND ALL COMMUNICATIONS CONCERNING THE DECISION TO FUND THE JOY JUNCTION THANKSGIVING DAY HOMELESS DINNER.

LINK TO: ABQ FREE PRESS MAKING BERRY WALK BACK THAT RETALIATION ON THAT HOMELESS SHELTER
The Eye on Albuquerque would like to thank and commend Albuquerque Gentleman Doug Peterson for being an outstanding, compassionate, standup person. We would like to thank this man for doing the right thing, without blinking an Eye. It is people like Doug that make a difference in this city, with bold, selfless behavior like this. These are the kind of business people that Albuquerque needs. Thank You Mr. Peterson. This man should be running the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Peterson’s spot on quote as taken from the Free Press:
“When there is political payback you never see it overtly. I wish this was a coincidence. Hopefully this will end in December [when a new mayor takes office].”
Does anyone see Tim Keller acting like this? No, Not in a million years. Let's remember, Keller is the only candidate who officially recommended action be taken against Raymond D Schultz, for his misconduct in regards to the Taser rigged city contract bid, and his reward of employment with that company for that bid. Remember, Schultz is where all of this started.
It is no coincidence that the Albuquerque Urinal (Journal) Newspaper has not done their story on Keller yet, because they are waiting till the election comes closer to put up their dog shit smear campaign, about nothing that matters, in support of their agenda candidate, or to divide the vote, while attacking someone they deem a threat to their parasitic way of life. Get ready folks, because these scum bags will be splitting hairs, playing semantics, and crying about horse shit that is not relevant to fixing Albuquerque. Watch for their slant, bias, and exponentially more in depth flotsam and finger pointing on one candidate as opposed to the others. Stay focused, because those the Journal support can all be either directly tied to the past and present administration, or it’s own interests. Stay focused, and vote for the person who will do the right thing.
So, to you Albuquerque Free Press… Thank you for everything, and it is about time Albuquerque gets behind a newspaper that is behind Albuquerque’s people.
If you fellas need anything, feel free to call on us. You will always have a home here.
What we will suggest is that certain businesses quit bootlicking Mayor Berry with bullshit awards and instead back a newspaper that makes a difference with the truth.
Aug 19, 2017
How old are you Pete? Really?! This is exactly what we are talking about. You started firing shots over the bow months ago, and it has been obvious. We just let it go. You said nothing, as we outted Lewis, and stated why Colon should not be mayor, but the minute we share a post, you put up about Pedrotty, you lose your shit over it. How much more obvious does it need to be Pete? For years we have called this administration out over their culture of playing victim, after being scrutinized, and called out. What do you do? You cry that you were threatened! Please detail the threat here? You, along with everyone else were told about personal agenda in this. We did not start our blog after deciding not to run for mayor of Albuquerque. No… we started this blog way back in 2006. You were around back then right? We know you were, because the photos below are the crew that worked directly under you.
As we have said before, this is our house, and our rules. If this page said Pete Dinelli Facebook, or Pete’s Eye on the Eye on Albuquerque, it would be Pete Dinelli’s house rules, but it is not. You came into our back yard, so don’t cry when you get bit.
Now getting back to our reasoning for things… you just proved it. Thank you for that. You were part of this shit, in its adolescent stages. Please say you called for Schultz to be fired. Please say you called for his prosecution, because you did not. No, you and a whole lot of others stood by while a frat boy mentality took over APD, turning it into what eventually destroyed it. It was allowed to fester. Your memory may be selective, and short, but ours is not.
Your childish counter accusation again shows where your mind is. We could care less about a spot anywhere. We want an administration that has the pure goal of doing what is right. We want a chief who does not lie to the media, under oath, or to the public. We want a mayor who has a set of balls to stand shit up like a man and explain to people what happened if something goes sideways without using everyone and everything around him as an excuse. We want to be able to support our administration, and say good things about them as frequently as we have to trash this corrupted one. We want the opposite of the shit that is going on right now. We want the children of this city to be able to ride in a car with their parents without getting shot in the face, or crashed into and killed. How’s that for what we want? Is that ok with you Pete, or is it not… because it is not all about Pete Dinelli.
Is it too much to ask for our officers to be happy to go to work, because they know the administration will have their back, and be fair should they screw up. You dullards have been told time and time again that it is not about the money, or the incentives, but you continue to be politicians, while you bribe and entice your way into office with false statements of why officers are fleeing here like it is on fire. You have no clue what the problem is because you say what you think people want to hear. If it is ALL about money or incentives then the wrong candidates are being selected… PERIOD. It’s about honor, dignity and fairness.
As for your snide comment on us checking with anyone for approval about what we say, you know where to go with that. We will speak our mind, and we are beholden to nobody. We have been doing this for years, in case you have not noticed. You are the one who has had handlers. You are the guy who has been beholden to those who would have you do something against your grain. We have not been, and never will be. The Eye and Tim Keller may disagree with nothing, or we may disagree with many things, but we do know that Keller is the type of person who would listen like a man as would we, unlike the way you do things, from your conduct here, and this administration has been doing for years. You see Pete, the fix here is far from what you are used to. It involves compromise, a resolve, and manhood beyond what has been going on for years. The lashing, out and vindictive retaliatory butt hurt baby antics are over.
We chose to back Keller, because he has experience in what needs to be done. He has been around, and has the life,and professional experience to stand up the plans he has. He also has a young family that lives in Albuquerque. We are not playing games to split votes like some of the underhanded scum bags out there. We are not putting out lies, and horse shitting our readers with false promises. We are not leading anyone down a path blind. We are not setting up anyone for failure. We are the truth.
This city has been submerged in a culture of institutional public corruption, stemming from way back when you worked for the city. It has led to the criminal enterprise we have here today. You, nor James Ginger, nor Brandenberg, nor anyone in the DOJ has called them out as one before we did. We have. We have, for years, and neither you, nor anyone else has called for anything to be done about it until you wanted something, so please mister hand out, please tell us what we gain by what we do? Please do! We do this because we are sick and fucking tired, and we represent those who feel the same. You feel you need to bash those people by calling them conspiracy theorists, with active imaginations. Please back that one up. Did we imagine Victoria Martens being murdered, and the lies? No, we have been calling them liars a decade before this. Have we imagined the Tazer scam with Ray Schultz? No, we nailed that too. Maybe you should ask the media how many of them read us. Let us tell you. All of them.
No standup individual with doing the right thing on his mind has anything to fret from us. It is the self servers, and clouded minds, the unjust, and criminals, the perverts, scum bags, dishonorable, the liars, the cheats and frauds, and the cowards and greedy bastards who have destroyed this place, and continue to do so. We just say don’t be one of them. If you think that is a threat, your man card needs to be revoked, and you need to go get some thicker bark on your tree, because it is going to take some balls and grit to clean this place, and feel good dog shit will take things nowhere. People understand that action needs to be taken, they just do not want to be lied to, and they want to know their administration, instead of being treated like mushrooms, fed shit and kept in the dark.
Please ask your candidate about the below photos. Ask him is he remembers them, because he was probably just taking the training wheels off of his twelve inch bike at the time. We are sorry Pete, nothing against him. He is a nice guy, with good intentions, but he will be walked on by these hardened public corruption engineers, who have been at it for decades. Maybe after a few years of learning about law, public corruption, the evil that permeates the place, the treachery around every corner, and how to deal with it all, but not now. Not now, when most responsible for this shit have been at it before he was born. This is not the place for coloring books and science experiments. It is time to knuckle down, and deal with the problems bluntly with the gloves off and the trust of the public without politics, agendas.
One more thing. Keller choosing to run for mayor is not abandoning his position. If he feels he can make a bigger impact as the mayor, it is noble. Would you fault someone for taking a job then promoting to better a situation? We think not, because it would be sour grapes, and you sound like sour grapes. This will not be a mayor by proxy, because people just want more than they already have, when so many have nothing. We hope we have made ourselves abundantly clear.
No hard feelings Pete, it's just the way it is. And please keep our readers out of it. They have done nothing to anyone.
Remember this jackassery? The safe city strike force? We do, and we remember who they directly reported to.
Moral of the story...
Don't throw stones.
Aug 14, 2017
Have you ever had that bathroom that you just hate to use? You know, the one that smells like feces, urine and vomit, with floors that are so sticky that they almost pull your shoes off as you walk across it to relieve yourself. Does that remind you of anything? It does to us. You know why? Because there is a newspaper here in Albuquerque so disgusting, vile and perverted, with it's offices filled with people so contaminated with personal agenda, involved in colluding with city government, and obstructing the truth that it is blatantly evident. That newspaper is called "The Albuquerque Journal," and it's what bias journalism is all about. The latest bile to come out of this bought and paid for political rag is below. Lets analyze this filth, shall we? As you read both this the Urinal article, and the information here, notice it is the Perverted Urinal Editorial Staff AGAIN, carrying water for, and protecting the current out of control administration, and attempting to intimidate and influence the outcomes of personnel board hearings in true criminal enterprise fashion. To make sure everyone is up to par on why we shine light on the out of control city corruption and explain to the uninformed just how they carry out their actions we have attached the FBI glossary definition of "criminal enterprise."
The FBI defines a criminal enterprise as a group of individuals with an identified hierarchy, or comparable structure, engaged in significant criminal activity. These organizations often engage in multiple criminal activities and have extensive supporting networks. The terms Organized Crime and Criminal Enterprise are similar and often used synonymously. However, various federal criminal statutes specifically define the elements of an enterprise that need to be proven in order to convict individuals or groups of individuals under those statutes.
The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statute, or Title 18 of the United States Code, Section 1961(4), defines an enterprise as "any individual, partnership, corporation, association, or other legal entity, and any union or group of individuals associated in fact although not a legal entity."
The Continuing Criminal Enterprise statute, or Title 21 of the United States Code, Section 848(c)(2), defines a criminal enterprise as any group of six or more people, where one of the six occupies a position of organizer, a supervisory position, or any other position of management with respect to the other five, and which generates substantial income or resources, and is engaged in a continuing series of violations of subchapters I and II of Chapter 13 of Title 21 of the United States Code.
The city has a myriad of current civil rights lawsuits, criminal proceedings, and a Department of Justice consent decree being launched on them. The mayor lies every time he opens his mouth. Police Chief Eden has been caught lying at these very same personnel board hearings. Former APD Police Chief Raymond D. Schultz is under a grand jury, and federal investigation for bid rigging, concerning TASER INTERNATIONAL, and other incidents and acts, finally, after having officers framed, thrown under the bus for doing their jobs, lying at several sworn testimonials, and costing the city millions in his efforts to obstruct the DoJ from conducting their investigation. We had the mayor's blatant veto of city council's plea for the DoJ to come in, and now we have the "Albuquerque Journal Newspaper" continuing to blatantly collude with government, to guide the winds of politics, and public opinion in their favor, in total disregard for all of our rights to due process and fairness, and as citizens of the United States. From this point forward, as before, we will refer to this filthy newspaper as the URINAL, because anything that comes from something that promotes corruption, bullying, trampling employee and citizen rights, violating civil rights, intimidates hearing officers, and promotes an environment where you will be publicly ridiculed for listening to all of the facts, and making a fair decision that is not favorable to this administration, because you have discovered that this administration was the one who acted inappropriately, maliciously and criminally, you are no better than something that people defecate, urinate and vomit into, among other things. You get out of it what you put into it, and we all know what is at the Urinal.
The warped minds at the Urinal Editorial Board call someone winning their arbitration hearing because of city misconduct, and corruption being given a "free pass." That's amusing. We call that the wheels of justice in motion, and DUE PROCESS. Like it or not, everyone in this country is entitled to due process rights, and to be free from those who conspire to violate those rights. The Urinal should make themselves aware of this, because being involved in it is prosecutable. Whether you agree with a hearing officer's verdict or not, it is an employee's RIGHT to have a fair objective hearing in appealing their termination. Cop, clerk, janitor, zookeeper, it does not matter. Ironically, the Urinal fails to tell you that this board is a board unfairly comprised of three members picked by the Mayor, and only two picked by the city unions, that makes a decision based on the recommendation of a hearing officer under contract by the city, who have been operating without a contract which essentially means that "if you do not rule in our favor we will let you go." That is called duress. Current hearing officers Bingham and Siegel made some very bad illegal decisions that can not be legally explained, looking at the evidence and testimony presented. It was obviously so bad that only a minority of water carrying minion board members clung to backing it, despite having so much political influence being held over their heads. This is a fact. We all remember when Robert Perry threatened Zane Reeves to change his verdict in the Perea arbitration. When Zane refused, Perry fired him. Judge Nash rectified that situation without even deliberating, and Mr. Reeves was made whole. He is now back on the board. Processes are in place to protect everyone's rights. The police chief, Mayor and Chief Administrative Officer have no respect for these processes. We know for a fact that the city attorney not only has no respect for process, they actively sabotage that process by lying, hiding evidence, intimidating witnesses, pressuring the media, omitting facts, and delaying. We have known all along that the Urinal has no respect for process, only for the almighty dollar, and staying in the graces of the political machine that "greases" their wheels. There is no honor at the Urinal. Those responsible for promoting the type of rhetoric, and disregard for human and civil rights, through the constant cover they provide to this administration are no better than rest stop bathroom floor particulate. IF THE CITY WAS SO CONFIDENT THAT THEIR CASES AGAINST THOSE THEY FRAMED WERE SO RIGHTEOUS, THEY WOULD HAVE NO PROBLEM PUTTING THEIR HEARINGS ON IN FRONT OF ANY PANEL, CHOSEN BY ANYONE, AND VIDEOTAPED ANYTIME. INSTEAD, IT IS THE OFFICERS WHO HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM WITH HAVING THEIR HEARINGS VIDEO TAPED BY ANYONE IN FRONT OF A STACKED, AND BOUGHT HEARING OFFICER, AND HALF MAJORITY OF A BOARD OWNED BY THE MAYOR, WHILE THE CITY FIGHTS TOOTH AND NAIL TO KEEP THE CAMERAS FROM RECORDING THEIR WITNESSES FROM BEING CAUGHT IN LIE AFTER LIE, THEY DELAY, AND OBSTRUCT, AND HAVE THE ENTIRE PROCESS IN THEIR FAVOR, INCLUDING THE FREE PASSES GIVEN TO THEM CONSTANTLY, WHEN THEY ARE IN BLATANT DEFAULT OF THE GUIDELINES THEY SET FORTH THEMSELVES.
The Urinal dug deep to 2012 on one officer, and discussed the termination of Steven Hindi, but what they did not tell you were the facts, and the reason for this "all of the sudden article" that reeks of agenda. The Urinal is notorious for printing stories without the facts. The Urinal likes to speculate, and edit out anything not conducive to promoting the agenda of this administration, the administration that goes like this.....
Susana Martinez, the governor and her BFF, advisor, hand that works her mouth Jay McCleskey, who is under federal investigation, Mayor Berry, who aspires to replace Susana and Robert Perry, who is the one behind the scenes orchestrating things. The new city attorney is no surprise..... a Susana political appointee. Observe how former public safety officer Darren P. white got his pot growing company Purlife approved by the state to grow. Darren is related to Perry. Darren White's partner in his security firm is a Mr. Linthicum. Mr. Linthicum is a hearing officer at the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy, where they freely admit to editing hearing officers findings before presenting them to the board. Mr. Linthicum was the same hearing officer who was going to scrap the case against APD police academy director Jessica Tyler until he got caught. Mrs. Tyler and Mr. Linthicum worked together at BCSO and when Mr. Linthicum's past along with the conduct of a few Attorney General's office employees conduct comes to light in the very near future, many more cases involving conspiring to violate civil and due process rights are going to further rock this administration and the NMLEA BOARD. These are no conspiracy theories. They are fact and, evidence that should lead to federal indictments involving hearing officers, police chiefs, city officials, business owners, and vendors. IPRA former Hobbs PD chief JD Sander's LEA90, and see what disparity in discipline is all about. His case was washed out while Ray Schultz still "had the ear" of then board co-chair Nate Korn, owner of Kaufman's West Army Navy, who's company has received several no bid, sole source contracts with APD through Raymond D. Schultz. It must be another coincidence, misunderstanding, or another free pass that Raymond D. Schultz is now working for that chief right now, while under investigation.
These people think they are above the law. Case in point being Darren White, who admits to now being a Marijuana user. There is a question on the federal form 4473 for gun purchases and for gun permits that disqualifies you from both, if you answer yes to that question. Darren holds a NMLEA cert. How can a person under the influence of a narcotic carry a firearm, or be a certified police officer when, if you have a drink while armed, you are committing a felony? Is using Marijuana habitually not a moral character issue that opens you up to revocation of your state certification to be a police officer? Apparently, in the state of New Mexico if you are friends with the Governor you can have your pizzaaahhh and eat it too.
But, back to the facts that the Urinal left out. To record someone, and then include them on a police report, you need their information. To obtain that information you have to run them. Hindi was to always use his lapel camera. Writing a report to state that is what you did and what is on your lapel video is not an abuse of NCIC. Officials from the Albuquerque police department ordering the destruction of that report is a felony, and it is tampering with evidence. The Urinal should have done the investigation that the Eye did. No, their omissions are intentional. That is a fact.
Regardless of your feelings for a person, everyone has rights. To violate them in one instance, while fighting for those of chosen others, not only is wrong, but makes you a hypocrite.
So... As the Hypocrites sit around on their worthless back sides down at the Urinal Editorial Board, devising ways to insulate Mayor Richard Berry and company from scrutiny, shield him from accountability, and protect him from exposure, so they can keep their inappropriate relationships with high ranking city officials, in order to insure their enrichment through more guaranteed contracts and influence, they really need to think before opening their big fat mouths, and consider who is really getting a free pass, because it is not the low hanging fruit that they constantly attack like the cases in the listed article. The people getting the free pass are the police chief, Gordon Eden, who lied under oath in the exact same Dear hearing they are talking about in their article. That is just one of Eden's free passes, and another little detail the Urinal conveniently left out. You can find a photo of the other right here on this blog. Gordon Eden sent out a blatant threat, meant to intimidate employees to stop talking to the DoJ. That is tampering with a federal investigation, but Eden got to call it a misunderstanding. The city Attorney, Jessica Hernandez got to call the federal monitor James Ginger's accusal of her obstructing the reform process a misunderstanding too; another free pass. Ray Schultz is still skating down in MEMORIAL VILLAGES TEXAS POLICE DEPARTMENT on his free pass. Kathryn Levy is collecting her retirement free pass, and Robert Perry gets his six digit free pass every year, after bullying citizens, taunting protestors, tampering with hearing officer decisions, then extorting hearing officers, (yes, extortion) and having his son drive him intoxicated to the scenes of police shootings to harass officers and violate their civil and due process rights. How about Lieutenant Greg Brachle's free pass to shoot his own officers, and his free pass to his relationship with one of them that will shortly come to light, and may have had a hand in why this happened. Now those are some free passes that the Urinal must have conveniently missed. All of this, and not a peep about why the former APOA president is still employed after being charged, or the up and coming trial for former detective Sandy, blatant omissions due to their adverse effect, and embarrassment on this administration, therefor ignored by the Urinal.
At this point citizens need to boycott a business like the Urinal, who feeds them lies, libels targeted individuals for political agendas, and cowardly promotes back door agendas for their own benefit and access. READ THE ALBUQUERQUE FREE PRESS, AND CONTINUE TO SEND YOUR INFORMATION TO US AND THEM. WE WILL MAKE SURE THE TRUTH SEES THE LIGHT OF DAY, AND THE UNJUST ARE EXPOSED.
