The first two days of Sheriff Bianco, what a contrast. Wow.
Blogger’s Note – I waited until after Chad Bianco was sworn in to post this piece. This piece has been at least 6 months coming…
Those of you that have been reading this blog regularly for at least the last 16 months will note that I have been writing about former Sheriff Bob Doyle off and on in parts of posts. A lot of times it had been for background. It is time to set the record straight.
Imagine having been smeared by a powerful local officeholder and the local media for 12 years with little or no recourse. This is what has happened to Bob Doyle.
We’ve re-told the story about Sniff’s termination by Doyle when he was an Assistant Sheriff. Sniff was fired for insubordination for refusing to carry out two lawful orders, one related to tazers and another related to patrols.
Sniff himself acknowledged when he got fired that he was surprised it took Doyle as long as it did to fire him.
No one knew, including Doyle himself that he’d get a chance to serve at the State level a mere 10 months later. (in 2007) No one knew that Sniff would be appointed Sheriff. Only in the last year+ has the truth about Sniff’s manipulation and diabolical behavior come out.
Let’s be real – I know that Doyle is not a choir boy. You don’t get elected to major public office without an ego or a mean streak. What I do know is that Stan Sniff smeared Bob Doyle mercilessly and retaliated against anyone he knew was friends with or a supporter of Doyle.
Bob Doyle was also one of my sources for corroborating info in my blog. His perspective helped me fill in some key gaps as I was piecing together a psychological profile and an accurate history of Sniff pre-Sheriff. I was initially skeptical as I knew Doyle had an axe to grind, however, when he told me that he approached me because he was outraged over what Sniff and Crew did to my wife… this was a clear indicator that regardless of his motive I could trust his information.
As I got to know Bob Doyle, I also became convinced that many within the department had formed their opinion of him based on incomplete information. As such, Doyle’s endorsement was never actively sought by Bianco’s team.
Stan Sniff terminated almost all of Doyle’s top people, though a few managed to escape to other areas. This provides absurd context to the blatant bias of the Desert-Sun attacking Bianco for planning a similar action. Sniff made it clear that a pre-requisite for employment in his senior management team was a visceral disdain for Bob Doyle. A lot of old-timers I have spoken to agree that this is a fact.
Sniff changed the narrative on his termination and a lie had been believed for years that made him look like a victim. As best I can tell, retaliatory PERS and Terminations were not common under Doyle’s Tenure (though there appear to have been some). As documented, they occurred en masse under Sniff. The local media was deign to remind people of how Sniff was victimized by Doyle before getting appointed Sheriff.
Only Bob Doyle would know the story about Sniff deliberately withholding information from John Taviglione regarding the failure of his son to complete training for a special team he wanted. Taviglione ended up being the third vote to appoint Sniff. To this day Taviglione is either willfully ignorant of how he was played by Sniff or he was complicit (implying some sort of backroom deal). It is the opinion of this blogger that the exposure of the dirty dealings leading up to the appointment vote some 11 years later was a factor in Taviglione ultimately endorsing the corrupt Sheriff after castigating him publicly for years. As you recall, Sniff’s manipulation of the information caused a meltdown by Taviglione toward Doyle as Sniff’s insubordination involved his refusing to do his job of communicating with the Board of Supes for the areas affected by his duties as Assistant Sheriff.
Doyle was accused of getting away with a DUI. This is false. Doyle was accused of affairs while serving as Sheriff, something he vehemently denies. Doyle was accused of covering up misdemeanors committed by his cronies, again something he denies, and I’ve seen no evidence to substantiate any of the above accusations (suggesting Doyle has been smeared for years). As a contrast, I’ve been able to prove many similar allegations against the corrupt sheriff.
Bob Doyle has been vindicated by the 16.58% humiliation of Stan Sniff. #1 the first time Sniff faced real and organized opposition, he folded like a cheap lawnchair, suggesting his regime was a paper tiger. #2 Sniff had been allowed to pin a lot of his failures on Doyle. The voters, when informed of the facts held Sniff accountable for failing. #3 for the first time in a decade or more, Doyle was able to gain a measure of defense and response to a lot of the institutional lies perpetrated about him by Sniff
I am going to close the book on Bob Doyle now. He is retired and living in Texas with his family. The last time I communicated with him, I told him to stay close to God and his Family. I also admonished him to go do some fun stuff in his retirement (like gardening), and to close the book on the Riverside Sheriff’s Drama.
Again, Bob Doyle is not perfect or blameless. He is however someone I believe to be a good man who was forced to live with smears for years that he could not defend himself from. Enjoy the rest of your life Sheriff Doyle and thank you for helping me with the information you gave me, it is appreciated.
The Desert Sun went off a cliff in 2018. Having Met Sam Metz at the CAGOP Convention in May of 2018, I had a neutral opinion of him. I knew he was young, pretty much fresh out of college. It was clear to me that his editor would have a lot of sway over what he wrote.
Then, inexplicably after being the only media outlet to write anything about the massive Deputy Cheating Scandal on the Investigator exam, the Desert Sun endorsed Stan Sniff. The reason? The editor got his nose pushed out of shape because Chad Bianco did not kiss his ring.
The P-E? They had been in the bag for Sniff for years. It was so bad that they shipped an editor off to Rancho Cucamonga after he dared to write a weak story about how Chad Bianco was being retaliated against in Hemet.
This dynamic magnified the impact of the Right on Daily Blog. People were clamoring for REAL news about the corrupt sheriff. Well, they got it.
The latest installment from the Desert Sun? Let’s talk about a purge. Note there is no discussion of the rampant corruption, retaliation, incompetence or cronyism of Sniff’s Management team. This is just a BS CNN-Style hit piece seeking to make the bastards (that is what I think of them) in to victims.
Bianco, who defeated incumbent Sheriff Stan Sniff by a 16.5 percentage-point margin in the November election, said his victory signaled Riverside County residents want change in the sheriff’s department, change that should extend to the top officers.
“The election results were a big win for changing the direction of this department and that change in culture sometimes requires drastic measures,” Bianco said. “Why would I want the same people in place that caused us to get to this position in our department?”
Despite this quote in the article, the narrative was set. It sure looks clear that the Desert Sun has hung a target on the new Sheriff. This is what happens when Media Types get bruised egos. It is also clear to your interpid blogger that most all media outlets in Riverside County resent the Right on Daily Blog. (KMIR being a huge exception as they alone had the courage to tear in to Stan Sniff on legitimate issues)
The Desert Sun then quotes former Sheriff Bob Doyle (himself the victim of Sniff-Led Smears for years, more on that later):
Although not every incoming sheriff cleans house immediately upon taking office, former Sheriff Bob Doyle said bringing in a new leadership team, as Bianco intends to do, isn’t out of the ordinary.
“Whether it’s in the public or private sector, in a contentious situation, there’s probably going to be people the CEO doesn’t feel he or she can work with,” the former sheriff said. “Especially in this latest election, you had allegations of intimidation by executive staff showing up at campaign events. It makes it difficult for a new sheriff to go in there and feel comfortable with the executive staff that worked for the previous sheriff.”
During campaign season, Bianco and his supporters accused Sniff’s team of dishonesty and intimidation. Tensions reached a boiling point when Capt. Dave Kurylowicz, a vocal Sniff supporter, addressed the Palm Springs City Council and, without substantiation, alleged that Bianco harbored anti-LGBTQ prejudice. Captains are not part of the Sheriff’s Department’s Executive Staff.
“You had a captain lying and setting up a candidate,” Doyle said. “How should he trust anyone when they’ve shown that they’re liars? Why would you want to keep that person?”
Well Duh. It is rumored that Kurly is attempting to hide, or may well have been transferred out of the MoVal Station at the request of their City Council. That loser also accused your intrepid blogger of homophobia, etc, which was regurgitated on the pages of the Desert Sun in the same article attacking Chad Bianco. (Note that they slipped in the words “without substantiation” in to this article in order to cover themselves for libeling your intrepid blogger and circumventing the need to print a retraction)
The B-S also quoted Lyndon Raymond “the Executioner” Wood. Wood has a long history of corruption and thuggish behavior. He should be grateful that he got to retire without being investigated for what he has done (beyond attacking my wife).
The Desert Sun cement their stupidity in this article as your intrepid blogger has posted several photos of Sniff Management going to Bianco Events. I have some neat photos of Huskey, Purvis (who later endorsed Bianco), Wood, Ford, Vest and a bunch of their butt-monkeys at Bianco Events. The Desert Sun article does not connect Doyle’s Comments to the proof, instead their abject Bias performs a partial-birth abortion of Journalism. One of the main reasons for Bianco’s anticipated HOUSE CLEANING (referred to by the B-S as a Purge) is because of the thuggery of the Management team. That may well be reason #1, the rank and file deserve better than threats, intimidation and retaliation. Imagine that, and your intrepid blogger posted hundreds of hours worth of proof.
However, the B-S completes their article by re-establishing their narrative. They quoted arguably the most reviled piece of slime in Sniff’s Management Team, Kevin Vest. Vest has been involved in more than just stonewalling the transition and refusing to return phone calls or emails. Vest is alleged to have been assigned the job of stonewalling the Board of Supervisors as it pertains to budget issues. His quotes in the article are bald-faced lies, but support the narrative of the editors of the B-S so they were ran unchallenged.
Stan Sniff wrote an op-ed that his Butt-Monkeys in the Press Enterprise ran. It was so absurd that I won’t link to it. Suffice to say, anyone with real knowledge of the situation within the Riverside Sheriff’s Office would hang their head in disbelief after reading it. Such is the status of Riverside Journalism going in to 2019.
P.S. Kevin Vest is still palling around with Jeff Van Wagenen in hopes of getting a coveted county I-T Job. Should he get that job, he would be able to monitor all of the communication between the DA’s office and the Sheriff’s Department.
P.P.S. Yvonne “Eggplant” Varela got an unpaid appointment to the Eastvale Public Safety commission. She and Jessica Gore were photographed at a city event full of Sniff Butt-Monkeys. It is unclear where she or Gore will be placed by Van Wagenen and crew permanently.
… before Chad Bianco can fire them I guess. We’ve detailed how Jason Horton and Christopher Brandon Ford have been interviewing with other agencies (including Menifee).
We’ve also detailed how the Second Floor are tying up loose ends, attacking whistleblowers and finishing off other Chad Bianco Supporters with retaliatory terminations and discipline.
Here is Stan Sniff on Facebook blaming the board of supervisors once again (even after three of those guys endorsed him, no less…)
Taxpayers be dammed, this photo represents about $2MM a year (or more) in Pensions. ARRRRGH
It has long been known that Mike Madrid is closely affiliated with USC. He has long been reputed to be a puppet of Bob Shrum and has been on the Dornsife Board for a number of years.
If you recognize Dornsife, they were the folks that did the “Panel Poll” that had now President Trump in the lead almost the entire 2016 cycle. It turned out to be as inaccurate as the polls of Madrid’s Carnales in the legacy media.
It looks like Mike Madrid is getting his 30 pieces of silver for whoring himself out to Antonio Villariagosa. It looks like he gets to rip off the taxpayers for a salary at USC!
You can see him calling long time GOP activist Allen J Wilson a White Supremacist – and then following it up with a harbinger of how he will treat students at USC that dare question his brilliance. Apparently, part of his interview process with USC was how well he could lob bombs at Republicans whilst talking about how to win elections.
Antonio Villariagosa got his ass kicked despite a combined $50 Million being spent by him and others on his behalf. It appears that the emotional scars for Mr. Madrid are being carried in to his “Professorship” at USC. You’d think after that kind of humiliation at the ballot box that a man would reconsider how much he knows about Latino Voting Trends… Latinos chose an old white guy over Villariagosa. (Actually, they chose TWO old white guys over Antonio)
I’d also guess that White and Asian people will not be welcome in his curriculum either. This is how it works when you dine on your ethnic heritage to make a living.
Madrid’s failures make the second piece of news a little perplexing. It is alleged that Chad Mayes, Kristen Olsen and a few others (including Mike Madrid) are starting a new political party in California. Apparently, butthurt and narcissism don’t lend themselves to simply re-registering democrat. (Or maybe it is more likely that not even the democrats want the three of them either)
It was put to your blogger that the aforementioned three people are so impressed with their political acumen that they are starting a new political party and have secured a $10MM donor to supply the seed money. The rumor is believable because of the demonstrated mental illness and bombastic ego of those involved.
I’d assume that said party platform will have “All Republicans are Nazis” in it. (Or at least Madrid’s “course” curriculum will) Perhaps Luis Alvarado and others that are openly and actively participating in Madrid’s ego-fueled rampage against Republicans will join in the 3rd party fun.
“Race, Class and Partisanship”, Mike Madrid Style. It’s not good enough to be able to check all the boxes, you have to label everyone else, too!
If Mayes, Madrid and Olsen really want to be effective with their third party effort, they should consult with the American Psychiatric Association and hire a few of their members to be on their board of directors. Just sayin’
