Guys, Gals: I requested an emergency visit to see my oncologist when I go to his office at 9:30am this morning to pick up the document (how will I get there, I do not know; I can barely walk, panting heavily and loudly and having to sit every few steps, because of exhaustion) that my attorney will show the judge when I appear in court; my landlord is in the process of evicting me again.  (I have no complaint against my landlord. My complaint is against the Mormon Church of Satan.)  A receptionist whose name is Lynette, has the document in an envelope, ready for me to pick up.  I spoke with another receptionist and she told me Lynette has the envelope for me.

All of this information is posted for the go-no-where LEGAL CASE that’s a figment of my lunacy.

Santa Monica (Spanish: Santa Mónica; Spanish for Saint Monica) is a beachfront city in western Los Angeles County, California, United States. Situated on Santa Monica Bay, it is bordered on three sides by the city of Los AngelesPacific Palisades to the north, Brentwood on the northeast, West Los Angeles on the east, Mar Vista on the southeast, and Venice on the south. The 2010 U.S. Census population was 89,736. Due in part to an agreeable climate, Santa Monica became a famed resort town by the early 20th century. The city has experienced a boom since the late 1980s through the revitalization of its downtown core, significant job growth and increased tourism. The Santa Monica Pier and Pacific Park remain popular destinations.[12]

Crime

In 2006, crime in Santa Monica affected 4.41% of the population, slightly lower than the national average crime rate that year of 4.48%.[44] The majority of this was property crime, which affected 3.74% of Santa Monica’s population in 2006; this was higher than the rates for Los Angeles County (2.76%) and California (3.17%),[45] but lower than the national average (3.91%). These per-capita crime rates are computed based on Santa Monica’s full-time population of about 85,000. However, the Santa Monica Police Department has suggested the actual per-capita crime rate is much lower, as tourists, workers, and beachgoers can increase the city’s daytime population to between 250,000 and 450,000 people.[46]

Violent crimes affected 0.67% of the population in Santa Monica in 2006, in line with Los Angeles County (0.65%), but higher than the averages for California (0.53%) and the nation (0.55%).[44][45]

Hate crime has typically been minimal in Santa Monica, with only one reported incident in 2007. However, the city experienced a spike of anti-Islamic hate crime in 2001, following the attacks of September 11. Hate crime levels returned to their minimal 2000 levels by 2002.[47]

In 2006, Santa Monica voters passed “Measure Y” with a 65% majority,[48] which moved the issuance of citations for marijuana smoking to the bottom of the police priority list. A 2009 study by the Santa Monica Daily Press showed since the law took effect in 2007, the Santa Monica Police had “not issued any citations for offenses involving the adult, personal use of marijuana inside private residences.”[49]

In June 2011, the Boston gangster Whitey Bulger was arrested in Santa Monica after being a fugitive for 16 years. He had been living in the area for 15 years.

A shooting in Santa Monica in 2013 left six (including the perpetrator) dead and five more injured.

Gang activity

The Pico neighborhood of Santa Monica (south of the Santa Monica Freeway) experiences some gang activity. The city estimates there are about 50 gang members based in Santa Monica, although some community organizers dispute this claim.[50] Gang activity has been prevalent for decades in the Pico neighborhood.

In October 1998, alleged Culver City 13 gang member Omar Sevilla, 21, of Culver City was killed.[51] A couple of hours after the shooting of Sevilla, German tourist Horst Fietze was killed.[52] Several days later Juan Martin Campos, age 23, a Santa Monica city employee, was shot and killed. Police believe this was a retaliatory killing in response to the death of Omar Sevilla.[53] Less than twenty-four hours later, Javier Cruz was wounded in a drive-by shooting outside his home on 17th and Michigan.[54][55]

In 1999, there was a double homicide in the Westside Clothing store on Lincoln Boulevard. During the incident, Culver City gang members David “Puppet” Robles and Jesse “Psycho” Garcia entered the store masked and began opening fire, killing Anthony and Michael Juarez. They then ran outside to a getaway vehicle driven by a third Culver City gang member, who is now also in custody.[56] The clothing store was believed to be a local hang out for Santa Monica gang members. The dead included two men from Northern California who had merely been visiting the store’s owner, their cousin, to see if they could open a similar store in their area. Police say the incident was in retaliation for a shooting committed by the Santa Monica 13 gang days before the Juarez brothers were gunned down.[57]

Aside from the rivalry with the Culver City gang, gang members also feud with the Venice and West Los Angeles gangs. The main rivals in these regions include Venice 13, Graveyard Gangster Crips, Hell’s Vandidos and Venice Shoreline Crips gangs in the Oakwood area of Venice, California.

October 22, 1948 (age 71)

Other names Squeaky, Red
Criminal status Paroled
Criminal charge Attempted assassination of President Gerald Ford
Penalty Life imprisonment

Lynette Alice “Squeaky” Fromme (born October 22, 1948) is an American criminal who was a member of the Manson family. Though not involved in the infamous Tate–LaBianca murders which the Manson family are best known for, she attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975. For that crime, Fromme was sentenced to life in prison. Fromme was paroled from prison on August 14, 2009, after serving approximately 34 years. Since 2014, Fromme has lived in Marcy, New York.

Early life

Fromme was born in Santa Monica, California, the daughter of Helen (née Benzinger) and William Millar Fromme, an aeronautical engineer.[1] As a child, Fromme performed for a popular dance group called the Westchester Lariats, which began touring the United States and Europe in the late 1950s, and appeared on The Lawrence Welk Show and at the White House.[2]


A section from a wall of Fromme’s Redondo Beach apartment

In 1963, the family moved to Redondo Beach, and Fromme began using alcohol and drugs. Her grades dropped at Redondo Union High School, but she graduated in 1966. She moved out of her parents’ house for a few months before her father convinced her to consider El Camino College. She lived there for two months before an argument with her father rendered her homeless.[3]

Charles Manson and Manson Family involvement

In 1967, at age 19, Fromme dropped out of college and went to Venice Beach after her parents had thrown her out of the house. Suffering from depression[3], she sat on a curb and watched a bus arrive, and a bearded man with long hair exited. The man stopped and looked at her and said “Your parents threw you out, didn’t they?” Fromme immediately decided that the man, Charles Manson, was a psychic. Manson walked away and Fromme picked up her belongings and followed him.[4] Manson had recently been released from the federal prison at Terminal Island, and Fromme became the second member of what would become the Manson Family.

Fromme found Manson’s philosophies and attitudes appealing, and the two became friends and traveled together with other young people, including Mary Brunner and Susan Atkins. She lived with the Manson Family at Spahn Ranch where they worked for their keep,[5] and at the Barker Ranch in Death Valley, which was owned by a Family member’s grandmother.[3] Ranch owner George Spahn gave her the nickname “Squeaky” because of the sound that she made when he touched her.[6]

Manson and some of his followers were arrested for the Sharon Tate and Leno and Rosemary LaBianca murders in 1969, and Fromme and the remaining Manson Family camped outside the trial. Manson and fellow defendants Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, and Leslie Van Houten carved Xs into their foreheads, as did Fromme and her compatriots. They proclaimed Manson’s innocence and preached his apocalyptic philosophy to the news media and to anyone else who would listen. Fromme was never charged with involvement in the murders, but she was convicted of attempting to prevent Manson’s imprisoned followers from testifying, as well as contempt of court when she refused to testify. She was given short jail sentences for both offenses.[3]

Fromme and Sandra Good moved into a dilapidated attic apartment in downtown Sacramento, as they wanted to be near Manson after he was moved to Folsom Prison. Around 1973, Fromme started work on an extensive 600-page book about the Manson Family, including intricate drawings and photos; other family members had contributed to it as well. Fromme sent it to publishers, but she dropped it after discussing it with Clem Grogan, deciding that the project was too incriminating.[7] The book, titled Reflexion, was eventually published in 2018 by the Peasenhall Press.[8]

Murder in Stockton, California

Fromme traveled to Stockton in 1972[9] with Nancy Pitman, Priscilla Cooper, and ex-convict Aryan Brotherhood members Michael Monfort and James Craig, in order to follow through with Manson’s deal with the Brotherhood.[10] This group met James and Lauren Willett at a cabin. In November 1972, Montfort and Craig forced James Willett to dig his own grave and then shot him because he was going to tell the authorities about a series of robberies that they had committed after they were released from prison.[11] His body was found with his hand still sticking out of the ground.[11] The housemates were arrested on suspicion of murder, after which Lauren’s body was discovered in the basement. She had been shot to death.[11] The Willetts’ eight-month old daughter, Heidi, was also found alive in the house.[11][12] Fromme was released for lack of evidence.[3]

The Sonoma County coroner’s office concluded that James Willett was killed sometime in September 1972, although his decapitated body was not found until the beginning of November. He had been buried near Guerneville.[11] On the night of November 11, 1972, the Stockton Police responded to information that a station wagon owned by the Willetts was parked in front of 720 W. Flora St. Sergeant Richard Whiteman forced his way into the house: “All the persons subsequently arrested were in the house except for Fromme. She telephoned the house while police were there, asking to be picked up, and officers obliged, taking her into custody nearby. Police found a quantity of guns and ammunition in the house along with amounts of marijuana, and noticed freshly dug earth beneath the building.”[11]

Fromme later told reporters that she had been traveling in California trying to visit “brothers” in jail and to visit Manson.[13] She said that she came to Stockton on November 10 to visit William Goucher, who was in jail on a robbery charge, when Lauren died.[14] When Fromme left the jail after visiting Goucher, she called the house on Flora Street to have someone pick her up, and the Stockton Police traced the call and arrested her at a phone booth.[14]

The Stockton Police exhumed the body of Lauren the following day. Cooper told investigators that she had been shot accidentally, contending that Monfort was “demonstrating the dangers of firearms, playing a form of Russian roulette with a .38 caliber pistol” and had first spun the gun cylinder and shot at his own head, and then pointed it at the victim, when it fired.[11] The police determined that Lauren had been with them voluntarily.[11] Fromme was held in custody for 2​12 months but never charged; she said she was innocent of any wrongdoing.[14] The other four people involved were convicted.

After leaving Stockton, Fromme moved into a Sacramento apartment with Good. The two wore robes on occasion and changed their names to symbolize their devotion to Manson’s new religion, Fromme becoming “Red” in honor of her red hair and the California Redwoods, and Good becoming “Blue” for her blue eyes and the ocean; both nicknames were originally given to them by Manson.[3]

Attempt to contact Jimmy Page

Prior to a Led Zeppelin concert in Long Beach in 1975, Fromme knocked on the hotel door of Danny Goldberg, vice-president of the band’s record label, Swan Song Records. Fromme, described as frantic and with a nervous tic marring her face, asked to meet with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page to warn him, claiming to have foreseen the future and wishing to warn Page of imminent “evil” which she believed might take place that night at the concert. Goldberg stated that he could not see Page until the following night, to which Fromme responded “tomorrow night will probably be too late”. After a long discussion, Goldberg agreed to deliver a message to Page if she wrote it down. Fromme was subsequently escorted away against her will and the note was ultimately burned and never read. A week later Goldberg saw Fromme on the television news after she had attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford.[15]

Assassination attempt on President Ford


The Colt M1911 .45-caliber pistol used in Fromme’s assassination attempt

On the morning of September 5, 1975, Fromme went to Sacramento’s Capitol Park, ostensibly to plead with President Gerald Ford about the plight of the California Redwoods, dressed in a red robe and armed with a Colt M1911 .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol. The pistol’s magazine was loaded with four rounds, but there was no round in the chamber. When Fromme pointed the gun at Ford she was immediately restrained by Secret Service agent Larry Buendorf. She managed to say a few sentences to the on-scene cameras while being handcuffed, emphasizing that the gun “didn’t go off”.[16] In 1980, Fromme told The Sacramento Bee that she had deliberately ejected the round from her weapon’s chamber before leaving home that morning, and investigators found the round on her bathroom floor.[17]

Fromme refused to cooperate with her own defense during her trial. She was eventually convicted of the attempted assassination of the president and received a life sentence under a 1965 law that made attempted presidential assassinations a federal crime. Attorney Dwayne Keyes recommended severe punishment because she was “full of hate and violence”; Fromme threw an apple at him, hitting him in the face and knocking off his glasses.[18] She told the press that she “came to get life. Not just my life but clean air, healthy water, and respect for creatures and creation.”[19]

Aftermath

In 1979, Fromme was transferred out of Federal Correctional Institution, Dublin, for attacking fellow inmate Julienne Bušić with a hammer. On December 23, 1987, she escaped from Federal Prison Camp Alderson in West Virginia in an attempt to meet Manson, who had testicular cancer. She was captured two days later and incarcerated at the Federal Medical Center, Carswell, in Fort Worth, Texas.[3]

Fromme continued to profess total allegiance to Manson. Vincent Bugliosi wrote in Helter Skelter that she and Good were the only members of the Manson Family who had not renounced him. She once told an Associated Press reporter, “The curtain is going to come down on all of us, and if we don’t turn everything over to Charlie immediately, it will be too late.”[20]

Fromme first became eligible for parole in 2005 and was entitled by federal law to a mandatory hearing after thirty years, but she could waive that hearing and apply for release at a later date.[21] She waived her right to request a hearing[21] and was required by federal law to complete a parole application before one could be considered and granted.[21][22] She was granted parole in July 2008, but was not released because of the extra time added to her sentence for the 1987 prison escape.[22] She was released on parole from Federal Medical Center, Carswell on August 14, 2009,[23][24] and moved to Marcy, New York,[25][26] where she and her boyfriend Robert Valdner, who pleaded guilty to a manslaughter charge in 1988, live in a house decorated with skulls.[27]

Popular culture

  • Fromme is the subject of musician Shannon Beaty’s song “Squeaky Fromme”.[29][30]

Guys, Gals: For the past several months a Latino male employee in Brooklyn Fare supermarket, on Schermerhorn Street at Bond Street, has a white bandage on his nose. Months ago I asked why was there a bandage on his nose; he told me, surgery.  The last time I was in Brooklyn Fare supermarket, I asked him how much longer will he have to have the bandage, I explained to him that I know what it’s like, having medical problems.  He didn’t tell me how long, probably because he himself does not know how long he will have to have a bandaged nose.  He is of course a plaintiff in an imaginary legal case that’s a figment of my lunacy, as are all Brooklyn Fare Schermerhorn Street supermarket employees.  I do not know if there’s a Brooklyn Fare supermarket in Flatiron near Mormon Church of Satan’s Restoration Hardware.  (The wrath of Jehovah God is upon you, Mormon Church of Satan.)  cc all Mormon barristers


This cover image released by Flatiron shows “The Big Goodbye: Chinatown and the Last Years of Hollywood” by Sam Wasson (Flatiron via AP)

Quentin Tarantino’s hagiographic “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” keeps ’60s Los Angeles swinging by wishing away the brutal murder of actress Sharon Tate. In the real world, the trauma to the close-knit film community signified the end of an era both personally and culturally.

With great style and lyricism, Sam Wasson’s nonfiction account of the making of the neo-noir classic “Chinatown” (1974) focuses on four of Tinseltown’s denizens on the cusp of realizing their California dreams when the Manson family unleashed its nightmare.

As neighbors armed themselves with guns and dogs, screenwriter Robert Towne cast a nostalgic eye on the prewar L.A. of his youth as he conceived a detective story for his best friend, Jack Nicholson, in his first starring romantic role. The idea of a throwback mystery eventually captured the interest of Paramount’s brash production head, Robert Evans, affirmed by the success of “The Godfather.” In turn, Evans brought in his director from another hit, “Rosemary’s Baby,” Roman Polanski, also Tate’s widower.

If the Oscar-winning “Chinatown” is indeed “the best American screenplay written during the ’70s,” Wasson does it justice by following Towne’s method of constructing finely detailed, lively backstories of all characters, major and minor. It’s impossible not to fall for this love letter to a love letter that pastes together the often sticky collage of how talent plus perseverance can equal a classic film.

The four main antagonists are vividly portrayed – Evans, the schmoozer with taste; Towne, the downtrodden writer; Nicholson, the charmer leading a charmed life; and Polanski, the auteur cursed to lose his pregnant mother to the Nazis and his pregnant wife to the Manson family. By comparison, short shrift is given to Faye Dunaway, brilliant as the femme fatale but high maintenance behind the cameras.

Wasson admirably credits the talents usually relegated to the credits with extensive reportage. Production designer Richard Sylbert and sister-in-law costume designer Anthea Sylbert painstakingly make every visual choice to “amplify character.” Cameo appearances include Edward Taylor, Towne’s uncredited writing partner, and composer Phillip Lambro, fired after preview audiences rejected his avant-garde score, leading to period-appropriate music from cinema stalwart Jerry Goldsmith.

Looming over both “The Big Goodbye” and “Chinatown” is the City of Angels itself. The setting from noir classics (“Double Indemnity,” “The Big Sleep”) to neo-noir (“L.A. Confidential”) to future-noir (“Blade Runner”), Los Angeles experiences constant booms and influxes that make it an amnesiac character. Wasson posits that if L.A. “ever knew what it was, it kept forgetting.”

In spite of excellent reviews and 11 Oscar nominations (only Towne’s screenplay would win), the box office returns of “Chinatown” paled in comparison to the escapism offered in the disaster epics “The Towering Inferno” and “Earthquake.” A year later Paramount showed Evans the door after “Jaws” swallowed whole the studio chief’s tasteful vision of movies made with what Wasson calls “a whisper of art, old genres revisited, classicism modernized.”

Wasson’s book concludes with a slog through the personal and professional declines of those who achieved career peaks with “Chinatown.” He should have emulated its noir climax: the truth is revealed, the victim punished, the corrupt absolved, the hero chastened. The camera pulls up and away in an ending crane shot as we trudge into the darkness to ponder a story well told and fraught with meaning. Roll credits.

Venice Beach and Boardwalk
Venice Beach and Boardwalk

Venice is a residential, commercial, and recreational beachfront neighborhood within Los Angeles, California. It is located within the urban region of western Los Angeles County known as the Westside.

Venice was founded in 1905 as a seaside resort town. It was an independent city until 1926, when it merged with Los Angeles. Venice is known for its canals, beaches, and the circus-like Ocean Front Walk, a two-and-a-half-mile (4.0 km) pedestrian promenade that features performers, fortune-tellers, artists and vendors. In the latter half of the 2010s, the neighborhood has faced severe gentrification that raised real-estate prices and pushed out many long-term inhabitants.[2]

Robert Kennedy Jr. will be nominated and confirmed U.S. Attorney General; and,
Robert Mueller will be nominated and confirmed Director of the FBI.

No power on earth has the power to prevent the above prophetic message that I write from becoming reality, not even these four people themselves.  I write under inspiration from and with authority from, God, the true God, Jehovah.

THIS IS ANOTHER AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM ME:

Mayor Warren Wilhelm aka Bill de Blasio is the clean-up man, if the Mormon Church of Satan/CIA succeed in their planned nuclear bomb attack on the Hudson River. His administration is already prepared to hold tribunals and immediately execute some of the “troublemakers” (30,000 bananas; nationwide: 30,000 guillotines, to be continued).

The purpose of this website is to expose the Mormon Church of Satan and all enemies of Jesus Christ the Way the Truth the Life, the Prince of Peace.
This website is also the beginning of a presidential campaign to elect Caroline Kennedy President of the United States. I prayed to Jehovah God to please, by means of His son Christ Jesus, please, arrange national events and world events in such a manner such that Caroline Kennedy is elected President of the United States.  I know Jehovah God hears my prayer and will answer my prayer because that particular prayer of mine is one of my deepest desires and Jehovah God has promised me that he will satisfy all of my deepest desires.  All of the information posted at this website is interconnected; directly connected to the Mormon Church of Satan’s illegal sting operation surrounding Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide, and me. The illegal sting operation that encompasses every human being on earth, and has resulted in the LEGAL CASE, unlike any other, ever. The LEGAL CASE, headed to The Hague, Netherlands. cc all Mormon attorneys
