First, today's adventure is memorialized in song ---
MIDI - CAMP GRENADA
David Kendall, weasel liar...with your client, you conspired
In the morning, I had caught you...I was very pleased to be the one who fought you
Reagan Building was the venue...outside ambush on the menu
It's a FReeper...pleased to meet 'ya...in this case the good guys soon are gonna beat 'ya
$1.6 mil you've been hiding...with some crooks you have been siding
"That is false," you're sternly saying...then you quickly walked away without delaying
Are there comments...don't be shy now...your B.S., sir, will not fly now
There was notice you were given...there's bad news 'cause unlike Vince, Peter's still livin'
In the lobby your were sitting...you are doing evil's bidding
Can't you see...that if the truth prevails, the truth is gonna set you free
How do you live with the lying...when will you stop truth defying
Hillary...will take you down, 'cause sleep with dogs and you get fleas
Wait a minute, Mr. Sleazy...you had gotten off too easy
In the lobby, one more FReeping...it will be a memory that is worth keeping
In your face I would be getting...I want answers...I'm not kidding
Sir, your client is a cheater...on my cell phone would you like to speak with Peter
ORAL ARGUMENTS, California Appellate Court
The adventure began with a 5:00 AM alarm buzzer. An unnamed Freeper, hereinafter referred to as "UF," met me at the Upland Metrolink station, and we headed into Los Angeles on the 6:41 AM train. That is the same train that daughter of DFU took for three years when she attended the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. Those who have kids know how fast they grow up.
After arriving at Union Station, we took a short cab ride to the Reagan Building at 300 S. Spring. The driver was extremely defensive when we questioned why he was getting on the buy freeway for the very short trip. He was insulted enough to say that he would get off the freeway if we wanted but he is the one who knows what he is doing. Nevertheless, on a $4.80 fare, he got a $3 tip. We right wingers are just too generous.
We arrived at the Reagan Building at about 8:10. We were very early, but I didn't want to miss Kendall. When would there be another opportunity?
I was on hold to speak with Doug McIntyre on KABC, but then I spotted him and hung up on the talk show. There was Kendall by himself. I quickly took UF's tape recorder over and approached Kendall. UF was taking pictures. I introduced myself as Doug (plus real last name -- no, my last name is not really fromUpland) from FreeRepublic.com and shook his hand. Then I told him that I had seen a copy of the July 11, 2001 proof of service when he accepted Peter Paul's lawsuit on behalf of his client, Hillary Clinton. Then I asked him why, when Peter provided proof of $1.6 million of expenses with checks, bank statements, and invoices, why his client allowed a fraudulent FEC filing to be reported on July 30. He immediately shot back very emphatically -- THAT'S FALSE AND I HAVE NOTHING MORE TO SAY. He moved to the entrance very quickly.
Unfortunately the POS recorder given to me by UF did not function, so we didn't have audio. But we have some photos.
After going through the metal detector and being relieved that the metal plate in my head did not set it off, we were suprised to see Kendall in the lobby on a tile bench. He was about 30 feet away and facing the other way. UF put some new batteries in the POS recorder, and we were contemplating the next move. No pictures, by the way, were allowed inside the building.
I called Peter on the phone and decided it just had to be done. With Peter on the phone, I walked over to Kendall and said, "Excuse me again, Mr. Kendall, but this recorder did not work outside. Can you give me a comment on the $1.6 million and the fraudulent FEC report? He was not pleased and said he already told me that he had no comment and he was busy preparing for his case. He wanted me gone. Well, when would I get another opportunity like this? I tried to hand him my cell phone and asked if he would like to say hi to Peter Paul. He was getting more perturbed, and I wondered if soon he would call a guard to come to his rescue. On the phone, Peter was laughing his *ss off.
Unfortunately, UF's POS tape recorder did not work. Rosemary Woods and the 17-minute gap immediately came to mind. UF said that he was tempted to take the POS recorder and smash it against the wall, but he refrained.
Kendall spent some more time preparing, then he started reading the paper. I wondered if he was reading about Hillary coming back to Hollywood, the scene of the crime to rake in more bucks. It was ironic that she would be doing that at the same time he was in court defending her for the previous violation, the mother of all campaign finance frauds.
Two of Kendall's associates were spotted by him and he signaled to them with a finger and thumb gesture looking like he was firing a gun. Had he been in elementary school, he would have been suspended for a week for that gesture. I was tempted to go complain to a guard that he had made a threatening gun-like gesture and should be removed from the building, but that probably wouldn't fly.
He and his associates headed for the elevator. Unfortunately, I did not get there in time to share the ride up to the third floor. Before going to court, he walked by us one more time, smiled, nodded his head and said, "gentlemen." He probably doesn't know I am the same guy who called him a month or so ago and offered to let him tell his side of the story in INDICTING HILLARY, the documentary.
Gary Kreep, the good guy from the United States Justice Foundation (USJF) arrived in the building, and we spent a few minutes talking before court. Then, we all went through another metal detector and made it into the appellate courtroom. In the hall on the wall were the photos of the judges of the various divisions, as well as those from the California Supreme Court. Yep, there was Janice Rogers Brown, the woman who should be preparing for confirmation hearings. Kreep spent several minutes in friendly conversation with the opposing counsel -- two weasels who represented David Rosen, Kendall, and Kendall's female co-counsel, somebody Norman. No, not Greg Norman. But if there was sumo wrestling match between the two of them, she could kick Greg's butt. Hey, just an observation.
The Clinton case was the final one to be heard. I went in and out of the courtroom a few times and caught just a tidbit of what appeared to be a child custody issue involving a mother who had been in prison. I am clueless what it was really about, but at one time one of the attorneys spoke about this woman, who was apparently somewhat nuts, who told another woman to go naked into a cemetar and bury $5,000. I'm sure that Laurie D. Zelon, Earl Johnson, Fred Woods, and presiding justice Dennis M. Perluss found it more fascinating than most of the other cases they hear.
I recognized a familiar face from the Rosen trial. It was Josh Gerstein of the NY SUN, and we spent some time in conversation. I saw no one else with press credentials. He appeared to be the only member of the press who came to the hearing. That is just amazing. Coincidentally, he was in town and covered one of Hillary's money-grubbing events.
A guy walked in who sort of looked Juan Williams. He didn't appear to be a reporter. Immediately after the hearing, he was out of there in a flash. My bet is that he was there on behalf of Hillary.
The arguments were very technical. Kendall had screwed up by not filing his "anti-slap" motion in a timely manner. He lost in the Superior Court and appealed. Gary Kreep feels that it went well and Hillary will not be getting out of this case. If she loses this round, she is likely to go to the California Supreme Court and create more months of delay. Nevertheless, we expect that she will have to raise her right for discovery. That will truly be entertaining for us and bad news for her.
Last item. On the cab ride back to Union Station, we argued with the idiot cab driver who had Air America on the radio. He was truly, truly clueless.
I am too tired to read...
An unnamed Freeper?
Wish I could have been there. Keep up the battle against the beast.
BUMP! For later.
Hey, Doug--good to hear you are still fighting the good fight.Great work!.
Tell UF the Reagan principle for testing tape recoders in advance: trust, but verify.
Life is good...and getting better...getting so much better all the time.
Thanks Doug, for all of your work.
I forgot to note. Kendall arrived at about 8:55. Arguments were set for 10:00AM.
Photos of Kendall tomorrow.
A FReeper tries to wait inconspicuously for Kendall's arrival. The ambush is being set.
FReeper introduces himself to Kendall and mentions FreeRepublic.com.
FReeper informs Kendall that he has seen a copy of the proof of service dated July 11, 2001, in which Kendall accepted service for Hillary in the
Peter Paul civil suit. Kendall is longingly looking at the front door and is contemplating his escape. His look is becoming increasing sour.
FReeper mentions that Peter Paul documented $1.6 million dollars worth of expenses that were never declared by his client.
FReeper asks how he could allow his client to create a third fraudulent FEC report, dated July 30, 2001. Kendall is not looking very pleased.
This is not a Washington Post or New York Times reporter. This one is a little unfriendly.
THAT IS ABSOLUTELY FALSE!!!
I have nothing more to say!
Who the hell does that FReeper think he is?
Left, right, left, right. Big arm swing.
To quote Dean Wormer, may he rest in peace, "I hate those guys."
He better not follow me.
Hey, will you guys do something. It's a FReeper! It's a FReeper!
Gary Kreep feels that it went well and Hillary will not be getting out of this case. If she loses this round, she is likely to go to the California Supreme Court and create more months of delay. Nevertheless, we expect that she will have to raise her right for discovery.
Do we have any idea when we will hear from the judge?
Within 30 days. Then, it could be appealed to the State Supreme Court, although they could refuse to hear it. The judges could also sent it back to the Superior Court. It is the typical Clinton game.
The unnamed FReeper and photographer is Blurblogger.
Psst, just tell UF to keep his camera but chuck the recorder.
Thank you for getting back to me and the article!
Photos up ping
"keep the camera but chuck the recorder."
LOL! One must behave oneself in a courthouse, you know...
StarFan....Thanks for the ping!
Doug.....I'm surprised that Kendall stopped to chat and wasn't spooked by your extra large FR Pajama Patrol Badge........LOL
BRAVO BUMP........for your excellent FREEP!
Understandable but unless I misread what my friend posted, the first emotional showdown took place OUTSIDE the Halls of Justice! Sheesh didn't we learn anything from Rosemary Woods.
All kidding aside your photos captured it all. Many thanks.
Thanks, for the photos..GREAT JOB! DFU,BlurB :D ...all you needed, was a "White Duster" rain coat. :)
Great Graphic art. Thanks for the ping.
You are the Bomb!
That's a Freep!
Blurblogger and DFU..... what a great team.
GREAT work! Bump!
Thanks for the report, Doug. Keep up the good work!
" Someday, JUST MAYBE, the Clinton mask will be pulled off and the public will see the monsters within..."
YES, it SHALL!
Because enough Americans CARE about the truth and justice to BE and replace the Media--when the Media isn't being the Fourth Estate.
ALL: If you will bump and ping and email this out to small newspaper publishers, talk show hosts, it will help. Thanks.
You guys are awesome!
"You guys are awesome!"
Nah, we're merely media infidels, doing the job the UN-American media just won't do....
Amen. Time to add DFU to the list of unappeasable bush haters.
BTW, Good work. You're awesome.
FREEPERS confront David Kendall.
Thanks for the ping!
The President has done several things which I wish he would correct and which have me screaming -- he spends too much money, we have open borders, and he allows the other side to attack without response. That having been said, historians will note that this presdident was the one with the vision to change the world by changing the Middle East. The Islamists are going to survive or Western Civilization is going to survive. George W. Bush is the Winston Churchill of the 21st Century.
Thanks for the prayers and encouragement!
I was just kidding.
I should have known. Doh.
This is an historic and unprecedented lawsuit whose defendants include a former president and sitting senator. It involves the largest campaign finance fraud on record. It involves a senator who is running for re-election in 2006 and the presidency in 2008.
You will see one story -- Josh Gerstein of the NEW YORK SUN was there. He was the only reporter I saw. I spent two days calling the media and getting them up to speed. No one thought this story important enough to cover. The Los Angeles Times building was in walking distance. This is an amazing news blackout.
Good report Doug. Thanks for the follow-up.
And he responded, "That is absolutely false."
Maybe it was the wrong question. Maybe, "Did your client file a fraudulent FEC report dated July 30, 2001?"
Maybe Kendall didn't allow his client to file a fraudulent FEC report. Maybe she did it w/o consulting him, or he told her not to, and she did it anyway.
Or maybe he's just a liar. Yeah, I'm going with that one.
