My Journey & Mission

blog

Something must be said. In all my days working towards getting justice in a place where there is no justice, I have been accused of being sanctimonious, unintelligent, naive, even man-chasing after a lost cause because I am a woman.  I have never addressed these things because those that KNOW me know that is not the case.  These are all attempts to minimize my mission.

My very core of being led me to this place. I was born with greatness as my uncle Mike would say. The greatness is not in blood or even heritage. It is self belief and confidence. We all have it; it is merely a matter of how much of yourself you listen to or maybe some will call it what God believes of me. I believe the latter personally because you cannot have the former without the latter but I understand that is not everyone’s view.

I am a simple person who has always basked in being underestimated in every realm of my life. Nothing feeds the soul like doing something people say is impossible. I was not supposed to live at birth. I was not supposed to be able to bear children. I was not supposed to be able to make a difference in the journey but yet I find myself working amongst some of the strongest people in Pensacola to aid me in doing the right thing. People I read in the news about but never thought I would have a dialogue with, men like Gene Valentino, Rex Blackburn and others. These men have a legacy in Pensacola. They are trendsetters. They are people who have crossed my path in commonality of mission.

I know it may not seem like much either but I get to work with Patrick Gonzalez and Richard Gonzalez. They are aristocracy from the foundation of Pensacola.  This is an excerpt from Pensapedia. (I did not write this nor did I poach it, Mr. Outzen. I am just CITING it.)

Don Manuel Gonzalez was born in 1767 in San Vincente, de la Barquera, Santander Province, Spain. Born into landed gentry, Gonzalez ran away from home to serve on his uncle’s ship. On December 17, 1784, he joined the army and was sent to the New World, landing in New Orleans. He was made Indian Agent in 1792 and was given the rank of Colonel and later Brigadier General in the Spanish Army. Don Manuel came to possess large tracts of land in Pensacola through honors granted by the Spanish Crown. After leaving the army, he was granted passage through the Choctaw and Creek nations and established residence in Pensacola, where he became a cattle rancher. He donated the land for Plaza Ferdinand VII to the city and opened a market there in 1816. When Florida was transferred to the United States in 1821, Gonzalez, a friend of General Andrew Jackson (and at whose house Jackson and his wife awaited the transfer), was appointed Justice of the Peace and made a Colonel in the American Army. The first Florida Legislature was held (and the first statutes enacted) at Don Manuel’s home, Gonzalia (nicknamed the “Fifteen-Mile House”). He was made Quartermaster General for the Florida Militia on September 14, 1822.

Gonzalez died in his home on March 8, 1838. His burial was marked by the closing of many businesses and was described by the Pensacola Gazette as well-attended, including the uniformed officers of the French corvette La Brillante.

A street and neighborhood in Pensacola are named for Gonzalez. He is buried at St. Michael’s Cemetery.

Patrick & Lenny Gonzalez may not look like the sort to be of importance in Pensacola today. But like I said, I believe we all have greatness in us. We are Americans…our existence is miraculous. Thousands of people died trying to get the American Dream. We are the stock of the people who made it…the survivors.

Each of us has a family story. I feel the need to live up to a standard of the way I was raised and the people I came from. Honor is a seldom used word in our culture. I have done some bad things that will forever mar my character and for those things my penance is to do right in other ways. Slaying this nasty corrupt dragon is going to be my legacy. It is my destiny. I put my soul into this. I have made exactly $4.70 so far off of 3 years of work. But my conscience is clear and my motives are right. For that reason, I believe with every fiber in my being I can only succeed. That is all that matters.

NOT THE FIRST TIME THE FBI, DOJ refused to investigate charges of judicial corruption

UPDATE: FBI, DOJ refuse to investigate charges of judicial corruption

Re: “SEC IG looks into United Airlines bankruptcy,” Nov. 24

For three years, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice have refused to investigate material evidence of a nationwide criminal racket that has allegedly infiltrated state and federal courts and is unlawfully manipulating and exploiting litigants in bankruptcy, family and probate courts.

According to court documents filed in Chicago, the FBI and DOJ turned a blind eye to retaliation against citizens who attempted to expose the corruption, including “kidnapping of children, false incarceration after being ‘framed’ by criminal elements in civil and criminal authorities, impoverishment, coercion under duress, and serious physical injury up to and including death.”

The 2006 affidavit claims that “multiple judges and lawyers are aware of and/or involved in alleged criminal acts,” but have not…

Pensacola Uprising

It has been brought to my attention that the climate in Pensacola regarding Sheriff David Morgan (I like to call him “The Media Whore”, but that’s just me) and Sleazy Bill Eddins (Again that is my thoughts, I think we are still allowed to say opinions, right?).  It seems their arrogance and overconfidence in the GOB (Good Ole Boy) System makes them remarkably reckless. Now everybody knows Morgan pisses people off with his complete ethical disregard of standards over his deputies or for that matter any amount of oversight and supervision. Let’s just thing of the man with 15 bullet holes in his car in his own driveway in the middle of the night, purely in error or the little boy on a bicycle in Brownsville that was tasered by a moving patrol car that then ran over the boy as he fell to the ground again when the boy, just as the man in his yard was guilty of nothing provable.

Then Mr. Eddins…well what can I say….he is a political glutton with no conscious who falls in alignment with whatever his cronies tell him to including falsifying grand juries that did not take place. I am referring to the testimony supposedly given in Patrick Gonzalez Jr.s  trial. He interviewed Frederick Thornton without counsel or recording said interview took notes to the grand jury without documentation in the presence of Corey Aittama, his lead investigator. Now this grand jury with no testimony documented or witnesses taken from the jail was given to David Rimmer who was “acting” as the judge over the grand jury “to fill a vacancy” but it’s ok because Nick Geeker approved it. To me, in Pensacola, no one’s word can be trusted. It seems to me that this grand jury—IF IT DID TAKE PLACE– was a mockery of justice with the conspirators involved calling the shots. Either way that indictment should not have been granted; it was absent of justice and with no indictment, it seems like anything that proceeded from the fruit of that fake planted palm is non-existent.

Then you have David Craig, the stoner, who either is not supervised himself or acting in direct collusion screwing with press releases, leaking a timeline and suspects that Deputy Tama Barber testifies were never developed at that point they appeared on the CNN. Being the Community/Communication Director for the Sheriff’s office, it would seem like Mr. Craig has some “splaining” to do.

But even in the face of all this, Morgan leaves County Commissioner Gene Valentino a threatening voicemail which has to do with the jail being taken from under his control. By the way, has anyone thought of the fact, the jail being under Commission control and “exploding” may or may not have been a veiled threat from our fine Sheriff? Seems convenient to show that the jail was in the commission’s “reckless” hands. It was a ploy that ultimately by an “act of God” got the Lenny Gonzalez’s van destroyed due to water contamination. Kinda hard to prove that wasn’t the van used in the Billing’s murder if it has been destroyed and the actual van disappeared that was found at the weigh station.

I think ex-Sheriff McNesby and the many other people like John Powell and maybe former deputy Chris Baggett Sheriff Morgan stupidly crossed in his misguided God complex should bond together. The enemy of my enemy is my friend and it seems there are so many of them.  Mr. Morgan, maybe you should get a flak helmet…there’s gonna be blood in the water.
