One Step Forward & Two Giant Leaps Backward for PFP
I was on cloud nine when I learned that my 1998 running mate Gloria La Riva and legendary AIM (American Indian Movement) activist Dennis Banks won the PFP (Peace & Freedom Party) nomination for President & Vice President. I knew my elation couldn’t last though if La Riva’s forces did not make a clean sweap of the old party officers …. and that is a mistake the party will come to regret.
Kevin Douglas Akin
In a giant leap backward, the party re-elected the most recycled party chair in it’s history, Kevin Akin. For background on Kevin, search in this blog for “Konversations with Kevin” and you’ll understand why his lack of impulse control, his deficient education, and his inability to write anything important without pontificating (and frequently ranting and raving) makes him the most singularly incompetent party officer in history. Of course, I have long suspected that keeping and returning Kevin to office in PFP is a Democratic Party strategic move in part orchestrated by Kevin’s son, Senatorial Aide to arch-right-wing Zionist Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR). As chief policy wonk to Wyden on Foreign Policy, Military and Veterans Affairs, Isaiah is complicit in why Wyden was once denounced by a Counter Punch article as being “to the right of Ariel Sharon” in the context of Israel politics….and why Kevin invariably waters down or delays to death any attempt by PFP to take reasonable positions against the Israeli right.
In a worse move, without any due diligence or vetting whatsoever the party convention passed a motion which endorses an imposter “Chicano Moratorium” event in Los Angeles organized by three (3) notorious anti-semites and their supporters:
Chris Eichwald aka Agustin Cebada
Chris Eichwald aka Agustin Cebada—a former New Mexico State Parole Officer, Eichwald was expelled from the old August Twenty-Ninth Movement (ATM, see http://janbtucker.com/blog/2016/08/17/people-in-glass-houses-should-not-throw-stones-at-the-chicano-moratorium/ and http://janbtucker.com/blog/2014/09/23/is-tucker-a-jew-a-zionist-a-mossad-agent-or-or-or/) on allegations that he was a government informer, according to Michael Sermeno. His KPFK radio show was shut down because of his incessant anti-semitic rants—and they were bad because to get KPFK to shut you down you have to be off the deep end.
Eichwald is so delusional that he once claimed in a paranoid email that I “flew for the IDF” in the 70s. That would have been kind of hard given that I was in class with Rudy Acuna and other Chicano Studies professors at CSUN during that time period so what was I doing: flying to Israel and back on the weekends?
James P. Segall Gutierrez
James “Jaime” P. Segall-Gutierrez—Respected Chicano Journalist Gustavo Arellano did a definitive expose’ on him in the Orange County Weekly: http://www.ocweekly.com/news/jaime-segall-gutierrez-wackjob-pendejo-lawyer-comes-to-anaheim-to-sue-city-pretend-to-care-about-injustice-6468063. Gutierrez represented Eichwald in the past and currently represents Douglas Paul Ruiz [See http://janbtucker.com/blog/2016/08/17/people-in-glass-houses-should-not-throw-stones-at-the-chicano-moratorium/]
Douglas Paul Ruiz, as I pointed out in the 8/17/16 blog, has conveniently had all of his felony (4 of them in LA County alone) cases sealed and an outstanding Phoenix AZ felony warrant for forgery abruptly dismissed (outstanding from 2002-13) just before he started coming to Chicano Moratorium meetings. In an email openly and brazenly sent to me, Ruiz denounced the National Chicano Moratorium Committee for allowing Jews to participate:
The so-called leaders of this committee have allowed a Jew to come in and break up any bit of comradery (sic) within the movimiento, and instead of settling the strife, it seems they relish it.
So, that’s the crew that is organizing a so-called “Chicano Moratorium” event to detract from the legitimate National Chicano Moratorium Committee (NCMC) event set at Salazar Park for August 28, 2016….and PFP voted to support them….
