RE: Item 38 @ Board of Supervisors Meeting, Support for the Contract Renewal for EMS Services – Gold Coast Ambulance Services And AMR’

Hello and Good Morning, 

RE:  Item 38 @ Board of Supervisors Meeting

My name is Gloria Massey Chinea and I live in the City of Oxnard. I am in support of the contract renewal for EMS services. The local private ambulance companies like AMR and Gold Coast have done not only a good but a great job providing for our community in a safe and efficient manner. As a retired healthcare provider, from a major health care health care system as well as an ex-owner and administrator of a Residential Care Facility in Oxnard I can personally attest their caring behaviors and services to our community.  In a personal situation in the past I have personally experienced great services rendered with my personal condition.  I expect and hope that you allow this to continue rather than supporting a government takeover of ambulance services.  We must remain with trusted businesses in our area that have served our community well for many years.  I have experienced their services in three levels, Professionally, Caregiver and personally. So someone that can speak about their service is me since I have had the pleasure of receiving the services in multifaceted ways. I urge you to listen to your constituents. 
Looking forward to hearing from you and supporting these private entities to continue their services in our community. 

Thank you!

Best Regards,
Gloria Massey Chinea

I find Citizens Journal to be undermining free speech at every turn. It routinely publishes anything that suits its right-wing bias no matter how outrageous and offensive but ignores genuine and articulate commentary that challenges the bubble. I find myself thinking this publication is nothing more than a conspiracy theory echochamber. Prove me wrong, I dare you.

That’s nonsense. Citizens Journal is providing real news in this regional desert of fake news. You would never even get to see the other side of what MSM presents otherwise.

Ok so Citizens Journal should be applauded for presenting an alternative to what… reality? I’m all for diverse opinions, so long as they are based on facts not fantasy. Citizens Journal is just an echochamber for not just partisan view points but blatant lies.

So, what is the ultimate endgame of the Elite and their mask mandates and lockdowns across America? Why are our Constitutional, God given rights being violated?  Why are our churches prohibited from opening for worship?  Has the global invisible enemy called COVID become the global catalyst for our global enslavement? Are we being conditioned to willingly become slaves in a Technocratic system of slavery? Are the riots across America being perpetrated by the Elite to destroy real estate values so that city blocks across America can be purchased by the Elite at bargain basement prices?  How does the Federal Reserve play into this scheme?  Why is this plan such a well-guarded secret?  Are the Elite afraid of our safety valve against tyranny? (Yes, it’s called the Second Amendment!) Why is it that we don’t know who the global Elite are, while they know everything about us?  Is there a plan to destroy all small businesses and transfer their retail sales to big box and mega stores, like Amazon?  Is there a tracking marker placed in the COVID vaccine? Do you really know?   Is there a cashless society on the horizon that can shut off your ability to make financial transactions if the Elite find that you’re not conforming to their dictates, as in China with their credit scoring system? The endgame of the Elite is a slavery system of “We the People” of the United States of America and the entire world.  This will be a system run by force!  Many of these questions are answered in the video entitled, “Planet Lockdown” by Catherine Austin Fitts.  Our survival and our livelihoods are on the precipice.  Take some time to learn about the invisible enemy that we face.  (1.) Our battle starts by refusing to wear the mask!

As of yesterday, December 27, the Congress has passed and the President has signed a new Covid Relief Bill which totals $2.3 trillion. Of this humongous amount, $900 billion, 39%, is going to American citizens. The national population is estimated to be 331 million. Children number 76 million, 23% of the population. The $900 billion equally divided among 331 million amounts to $2,719 per person. Six of 100 Senators and 53 of 412 Representatives voted against the 5,600 page bill.

For perspective on the magnitude difference between a million and a billion, consider that a million seconds is about 12 days. A billion seconds is 32 years. A trillion seconds is 320 centuries. In order for us to pay off this $2.3 trillion, it will mean paying $230 per second for the next 3200 years, not including interest charges. This amount is in addition to the $2 trillion CARES Act of March. 

Happy New Year.

Does Oxnard start communistic CENSORSHIP

Voting public:

Did you give your Oxnard City the right to block your emails from getting to me, your elected City Treasurer? Or from you sending appropriate emails to any city employee? Do you like being censored from communicating with your appointed and elected officials?

Oxnard City, (apparently with the approval of the Mayor and Council?), has instituted censorship in what city elected and appointed staff can receive or at least from whom emails can be received (see picture below). Note that other “best wishes emails” were likewise “blocked” when sent to city staff.

Being your elected elected official I am obligated to read emails that you, a member of the public, send to me with the expectation of my receiving it. No one has the right to censor what the public wants to send their elected official. If the email is threatening, crude or disgusting there are proper methods of dealing with the authors.

Do you want your emails to elected officials and professional staff to be censored? I don’t.

President Trump posted the link below (1.) on his twitter account Sunday, December 20, 2020. This brief video reveals the Communist enemy that currently is attempting to overthrow the United States of America, from within. The year of 2020 has been an all-out information and computer assault on our nation by the Chinese Communist Party. It’s happening with the assistance of a complicit media, greedy politicians, a corrupt judicial system and a public education system that extols the virtues of Socialism and Communism. We are on the verge of losing our God given liberties as recognized in our U.S. Constitution.  It’s time to fight for our freedoms and the freedom of our posterity.  It’s also time to demand answers from out Arizona leaders as to where they stand in this battle.  Are they involved in treasonous business dealings with the Chinese Communist Party? Are they knowingly turning away from their oaths to defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic?  Are they comfortable with their treasonous ways against the American public?  Or, will their guilt cause them to defend America from this Chinese Communist enemy? The Chinese Communist Party has infiltrated America to such a degree that we now stand on the precipice of destruction.  We must hold all parties that are complicit in this takeover accountable for their treasonous activities.  We must let President Trump know that we support him in any and all methods that he may choose to save America. We must let President Trump know that we have his back and unconditionally support him.  Let him know that we’re praying for him and are taking to the streets in peaceful protests for him.  We know that there are traitorous people consorting with the enemy and we will not let them conquer America. Never!

America is a REPUBLIC, not a democracy.

When the citizens fail to participate in a REPUBLIC, it gets reduced to a democracy.

Then, when the citizens do participate, a dictatorship becomes more likely.

Special City Council Meeting on Oxnard Measure E

A number of years ago via a public record request I was inspecting documents related to payments to the District Attorney’s Office related to the gang injection. Ed Sotelo was the city manager, James Cameron was the CFO, and Dale Belcher was City Treasurer. Most of the transaction reflected payments to the attorney, representing the city, fast tracking criminal charges. Those transaction has sufficient backup showing the hours work and the cases being adjudicated. There were several transactions reflecting payments to the District Attorney’s Office for $10,000 each. There was no back up, there was no explanation. Fast forward to this year. The city has a City Manager and City CFO reviewing transactions with no oversight from an elected official. The city manager now wants to increase revenue via Measure E, hoping to raise $32,000,000 a year with no direct oversight from an elected official.

Measure E will have no oversight. Vote No on Measure E. The way Measure E is written. The city manager will be able to spend the money anyway he wants. Measure O had language indicating, but not mandating there would be an increase in Code Compliance. There was no increase in Code Compliance.
Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Vote No on Measure E.

Respectfully submitted,

Lawrence Paul Stein

There seems to be some confusion about how the present statue of Serra got where it is. It has been a long time and I didn’t think it would become controversial at the time so didn’t make special not of it but my recollection differs from some versions I have seen.

It is my recollection that the original concrete statue was in poor condition. The master woodworkers association volunteered to make the wooden mold used to cast the present bronze statue. I remember articles in the Star about them and the long hours they spent taking careful measurements in order to preserve the likeness that Kangas, the original sculptor, had crafted.

After the mold was built, I don’t know how the bronze got paid for. It is my recollection that it was by public subscription, but I could be wrong on that.

I wonder if the Star has kept archives from those articles of probably 40 years ago or perhaps more?

Restoration Life Christian Church May 17, 2020
Lawndale, CA

Dear Leaders.

What would Jesus do? What did early Christians do? They met underground or in people’s home in direct defiance of the government. Chinese Christians do the same thing.
Stop hiding and realize most of this is exaggerated but goes along with the socialists/leftists here wanting to get rid of Christians and churches. So, they are taking this opportunity to do so.
And to control us all.
If churches do NOT stand up, we will soon be stamped out. The data has been greatly exaggerated and the powers that be are listening to technocrats, like Barbara Ferrer, a social worker, paid $500,000 advising the LA County Board of Supervisors, who knows nothing about disease like this nor the effects on the economy and human beings, and is undoubtedly against Christians. The people making all of these orders are being paid high salaries. So they are not feeling any pain, when many of your congregants are feeling a lot of pain– so need some spiritual communion.
Do you know the greatest punishment meted out in prisons is isolation in the hole. People are social beings so we need others. And people need the social and spiritual guidance.
I’ve been doing a lot of research on all of this.

And don’t let one church in Butte County stop you, who met, and one person was tested positive for the virus. You can be tested positive if had a flu shot. My Dr. said don’t get tested.
Can start with drive-in meeting as some were going to just before we got shut down. Then gradually go to multiple services with a certain minimum number in them for some distancing. Although doubt that will make much difference.
Paul got put in prison for preaching the gospel, which was against the government’s rules, and eventually gave his life. Are we willing to give of ourselves to meet with our God?
Enclosed is a chart to show just what the actual data is on the COVID virus. In proportion, the numbers are not what are being announced. Look at the percentages.
If left alone, there’s such a thing as herd immunity which builds up antibodies in the herd of people, like the flu vaccine does. It’s God’s way of mitigating the disease. But no, the government has to swoop in and control us masses and isolate all– when only a small number are getting the actual virus, and that mostly in nursing homes. Some doctors are reporting they are told by county agencies and even the AMA to state deaths on death certificates, by corona virus, instead of by natural causes. The hospitals are empty, doctors out of work. People are suffering greatly through this– not only financially, but with depression and other health risks.
So stand up for God and the church and do what’s right by Him, not what’s right by the governments run by so-called atheists. If all churches in California opened upon May 31 at same time, they’d have a hard time trying to stop that many- and it would be a loud message.
God Bless

Why is this Ross Wolschlager allowed to be released in Ventura County and on top of everything, the judge will not allow his address to be released! This is an outrage! What about Megan’s Law? This judge needs to be fired!
