Did you hear the latest? Menifee is starting their own police department. After the City Government used technicalities to thwart an attempt to repeal their sales tax increase, the City Council is hard at work spending the money.

A life’s dream of at least two of their council-members is a Menifee PD. Menifee is a City of About 90K people that has been a “Contract City” of the Sheriff’s Department since it’s incorporation over a decade ago.

It has been put to this blogger that the reviled Christopher Brandon Ford is going to be offered the Chief of Police job in Menifee. Ford, pictured several months ago with Lt Huskey and the local Station Captain was attempting to intimidate Chad Bianco at a public event.

Christopher Brandon Ford – then a Captain – was the Captain of the RATT Squad in the middle of covering up the massive deputy cheating scandal. While Ford claims to be a “Born Again Christian”, his life and lifestyle belie the faith he claims.

Ford was well known for carousing and using his rank to get horizontal refreshment according to a myriad of confidential informants. It is also alleged that behavior continues to this day. If anyone has further information about the pending insanity in Menifee, please contact us.

Two days ago, we started in to the sad state of affairs at the County of Riverside Worker’s Comp. Riverside self-administers and self-funds their system. This lends itself to corruption and incompetence when there is no third party oversight. It is clear that the five elected supervisors don’t oversee the administration or, worse they have directed the County to engage in abusive claims management.

Your intrepid blogger was informed of people that contracted cancer and died from asbestos. They had to litigate a class action lawsuit and at least one claimant died before the case was complete. I assume that Marion Ashley, John Taviglione and others think letting people die saves the county money?

The pattern of abuse of injured or sick employees suggests that this transcends incompetence.

Jay Youngblood sits in a wheelchair needing constant assistance because the county is denying his worker’s comp claim similar to dozens of others with far less severe injuries. However, blown knees turn into permanent disabilities with months and years of stonewalling paying for basic medical services and rehab.

Why then did Lee Tainter’s claim get picked up so quickly when others are forced in to years of litigation?

Stan can absolutely do something about Jay if he wanted to, If he cared. Case in point, Nola Tainter out of the blue donated $2000.00 to stans mess of a campaign. Shortly after the donation her husband Lee Tainter gets a call from Di Yorio letting him know his full industrial disability retirement had been approved and granted. Why would Di Yorio make a personal call right after a sizable donation????

So, is someone in County Admin on the take? Or are they taking orders from Stan Sniff? Is this suggestion of corruption (and a possible cover-up) a reason why John Taviglione suddenly endorsed Stan Sniff for re-election on his way out the door?

None of these suggestions are good. The presence of a Sheriff Chad Bianco will obviously change things somewhat – but systemic reform is needed and it starts with the County Board of Supervisors.

Nola Tainter was in Jessica Gore’s Job and actually trained Gore before Sniff fired her. Once Lee got injured, it sure looks like she and Lee (who also donated) greased the skids and her past termination by Sniff was forgotten. Sniff got some badly needed campaign cash, Lee got his claim picked up. Jessica Gore is the wife of Jason Gore, recently rewarded with a promotion to Sergeant despite being in the middle of the cheating scandal that rocked the Sheriff’s Department. Gore is a media relations person for Sniff (I’d imagine she was able to get Gore’s name omitted from what little coverage there was of the issue) and also made sure the infamous “Eggplant” got a job on the second floor as well.

It is alleged that Kurly and Lyndon Raymond “the Executioner” Wood are attempting to “go out on disability”. Will the County of Riverside pick their claims up quickly? (If indeed the rumors of their real or imagined illnesses are true?) It is also alleged that Undertaker DiYoyo is filing a “Knee Claim” in order to make some of his retirement tax free. I will lay odds that claim gets picked up as well. (We will be following up on all of these as County Admin appears to be combination of corrupt and incompetent like Broward County Elections)

P.S. Please visit this link on the DIR Website to file a complaint about the abuse of your claim.

My day job is selling insurance. I received an alert from an industry publication that the National Flood Insurance Program still has not been renewed. Please tear through the partisan gridlock and renew this program. Millions of people would be in serious financial jeopardy without it!
(Pictured Lassen National Park outside of the famous “Bumpass Hell” area)
Add to the above Flood Insurance Program Expiration, last month, an important conservation program expired because Congress failed to act to reauthorize continued funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund. The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) is a 56-year-old conservation program established by Congress in 1964.
In the Inland Empire area, local governments have used a ton of grant money to work on many local outdoor recreation projects. Out in the Inland Empire, the LWCF has funded projects to benefit the Inyo National Forest, Morongo Canyons, the East Mojave NSA, and the San Bernardino National Forest to name just a few.
In the LWCF 2019 priority funding list, the Sand to Snow National Monument is a priority item, valued at $1 million. The loss of this type of funding will severely hamper any area that is dependent on recreation to continue to preserve our natural resources while providing recreational opportunities for everyone. It is critical to support these efforts as eight years of over-the-top environmental extremism by the Obama Administration sought to cut people off from using their own land! The LWCF is actually “good government”.
In California alone, outdoor recreation provides $92 billion in consumer spending. This when coupled with $30.4 million in wages and salaries, means that not only are we protecting our natural resources, but also providing a secure living for those who spearhead our important conservation.
With California’s stubborn refusal to use any sort of balance on its’ land-management practices precipitating all the wildfires that rapidly rage in to city-destroying infernos, this funding becomes even more critical to save federal wild-lands from being overrun by wildfire until sanity can be restored to Forest Management.
Congress has failed to renew this program before its expiration on Sept 30th. Dear Congressman Cook and Calvert, please help. I’ve been to almost 100 National Park / Monument Locations and they are awesome places to visit in part because of LWCF.
Congressmen – Please be a part of Congress acting to permanently renew the LWCF so that this funding source can be maintained to continue its crucial funding work without any impact to taxpayers.
Join with me in urging Representatives Paul Cook and Ken Calvert to support the permanent reinstatement of the LWCF to protect and preserve our great natural resources.

One of the recurring themes during my 13 month detonation of Stan Sniff was that he could care less about the plight of injured employees.

Again and again, I was contacted by legitimately injured employees whose claims were all getting denied, paperwork kicked back repeatedly and people who ended up being forced to hire Worker’s Comp Attorneys over what should have been three month injuries that turned in to permanent disabilities because County Worker’s Comp refused to treat the injury when it could have been contained early.

I am talking about Back Injuries, that were minor to moderate that were allowed to degenerate while County Admin ran through their time-tested procedure of DENY DENY DENY regardless of merit. This is the heartless actuarial formula called mitigation by denial. This is the sort of behavior Insurance Carriers get accused of, but is rarely ever done on my side of the Insurance World.

Only twice in my 21 year career have I ever had to advise an insured to retain an attorney and sue the Insurance Carrier I placed them (or their employer) with. It has, however been put to this blogger repeatedly that several well-meaning employees in the County of Riverside tell injured workers off the record to hire an attorney because their claim is going to be denied.

Where does Stan Sniff come in? It appears that Worker’s Comp Claims of his chosen few were “picked up” almost immediately as opposed to the usual 2-3 year fight that the County puts up against the “Non-Chosen”. This suggests that either the Union President calling the County or the Sheriff Calling has an impact on the outcome.

I blistered Stan Sniff several times over attempting to use injured employees as campaign props. One of the assertions I made is that once they were no longer useful, he’d forget about them.

Witness Jay Youngblood. Witness Jason McMillan. While Sniff never visited McMillan in the hospital, he was there to stage pictures with McMillan for his social media. Christopher Brandon Ford was apparently present at Youngblood’s bedside attempting to recruit Youngblood on to team Sniff.

It is apparent that Youngblood did not play ball as County Worker’s Comp is doing their usual. Youngblood is PARALYZED and COUNTY WORKER’S COMP IS REFUSING REHAB OR ADA modifications to his house! Read the previous sentences again. When the County is not busy taking minor or medium knee/back injuries and making them permanent by an arrogant, heartless, merciless blanket refusal to pay for basic medical services – they are also denying service to a paralyzed deputy as well.

Who has oversight of the Bureaucrats in Riverside County’s Worker’s Comp? That’s right: Kevin Jeffries, Marion Ashley, John Taviglione, Chuck Washington and V Manuel Perez. None have said a peep for years while these repeated abuses occur.

Ashley and Taviglinone are retiring and will be replaced by Karen Spiegel and Russ Bogh/Jeff Hewitt (who is leading). Perhaps the Riverside County Board of Supervisors need to be hammered for the denial of basic medical care to legitimately injured employees? This cuts across party lines.

Note – Since the County of Riverside is a Government Agency and is self-insured, they act like they are EXEMPT from most of the regulatory oversight regular Worker’s Compensation Carriers have. This also suggests that the County thinks the only recourse for injured employees is to sue and they are taking full advantage. This artificially created employee versus government environment was deliberately created to break the system to get people crying for socialized medicine as a solution for uniform standards. All it takes is the County Board of Supervisors intervening and changing the culture of abuse in County Admin as opposed to a state-run Worker’s Comp monopoly (which would be worse for EVERYONE).

Blogger’s Note: anyone being abused by the County of Riverside should file a complaint with the Department of Industrial Relations, they have oversight of all Worker’s Comp in California (self-insured or otherwise)

Meantime, here is Jay Youngblood being forced to Crowd Fund for his necessary medical expenses. This is an outrage, but is posted so you can get involved and help Jay as well as to pressure the feckless board of supervisors to do their job and deal with the abuses.

My brother, Jay Youngblood, is a Deputy from the Riverside County Sheriffs Department. On July 24, 2018, Jay was training to become a motorcycle officer and was in a catastrophic accident which, in medical terms, left him as a T4 complete injury. In non-medical terms means Jay is paralyzed from the chest down. We are praying this is not God’s plans for the remainder of his life and we know that if anyone can overcome such odds it’s Jay.

Jay has been home from the hospital for almost 2 months and his kitchen still remains inaccessible to him, making simple tasks such as getting something to eat or drink impossible without assistance.  We have been trying to work within the system for months and are now out of options. You would think since Jay was injured on duty, that the County of Riverside Workman’s Compensation would be helping Jay, unfortunately that is not the case.

Jay has requested to attend a rehabilitation center that specializes in spinal cord injuries to increase his chances of overcoming this injury, however the county keeps kicking it back.

WE NEED HELP!!! All donations will go directly to my brother to cover the necessities to make everyday life accessible to him, necessities that Workman’s Comp is not covering.

It looks like the County of Riverside has determined that Jay Youngblood being paralyzed versus rehabilitation of the injury is the most cost-effective solution. Who cares about Jay’s future quality of life. The Riverside County Board of Supervisors? Crickets.

Sniff claimed he asked other agencies to do the event before cancelling it. It looks like yet another absurdity out of him.

Assistant Sheriff Kevin Vest, who Sniff tried to install in his place for the lame duck period was left to send an embarrassing email covering for the insane decision to cancel the event:

From: “Vest, Kevin” <KVest@RIVERSIDESHERIFF.ORG>
Date: November 21, 2018 at 14:55:51 PST

Subject: Blue Light Ceremonies


The Blue Light ceremony was cancelled, but will now continue as originally planned.  The annual Blue Light Ceremony is a tradition that allows the community and law enforcement to reflect and honor those that have given their life for the residents of our county. Regardless of the challenges presented to us, it is essential that these ceremonies continue as they have become a part of our culture, history and are woven into the fabric of Riverside County. Those honored at the Blue Light represent the best in Riverside County law enforcement and come from all the agencies that serve our communities.

Chief Reyes and the Palm Springs Police Department will lead the coordination of the Coachella Valley event which is scheduled for December 10, 2018 at 6:00 pm.

Chief Diaz and the Riverside Police Department will lead the coordination of the Riverside event which is scheduled for December 17, 2018 at 6:00 pm.

Kevin L. Vest

Assistant Sheriff

Administration, Courts, Coroner & Public Administrator


While I am thrilled to see the other agencies step up – it is disturbing to watch Sniff burning down the department on his way out the door.

In addition, we received a Bob Epps update. He is continuing to run his empire from the Bomb Squad despite multiple instances and documented evidence he is crooked.

It has also been told to this blogger by more than one source that Stan Sniff has already cleared his office out. “The Second Floor” is also reputed to be a ghost town.

Stay tuned, another 5 1/2 weeks to go…

Nov 212018

Many of you remember when I posted about the threats of physical violence and the creepy memes against my wife.

Lyndon Raymond “the Executioner” Wood is pictured here with his wife Raemie, who is also an employee of the Riverside Sheriff’s Department. Since Wood himself was not the candidate – I chose to exercise some restraint in what I wrote about him and Raemie.

For example – I did not hang the name “Executioner” on Mr. Wood until I had proof of the Skull tatoos he got to commemorate the people he clipped in the line of duty.

Apparently, shooting people on the clock is one of several talents Mr. Wood brought to the table for Mr. Sniff.

As for your wife, a lot of people were pissed after that happened. Ray Wood was bragging about it around the office. He couldn’t have done it alone, he’s an idiot.  I am very embarrassed that he did that because it does reflect on everyone. Again, Ray is an idiot. I think because you exposed his wife’s numerous deputy list. They truly deserve each other.

When the attack against my wife happened, most thought it was Kevin Vest, Kurly or Tony Pelato. Vest and Pelato are computer nerds and Kurly was on a psychotic rampage using at least a dozen fake facebook profiles to have a virtual circle jerk. I was told by someone with deep cover months ago that I’d be surprised to find out who really did it.

A female called my wife’s employer attempting to get her in trouble for things I was doing. One could easily draw the conclusion that it was Raemie Wood.

I should probably thank Ray Wood for attacking my wife, as it freed me from any need to restrain myself (except for not crossing the libel line) with regard to how I eviscerated Sniff and Crew.

Men who value their wives will die to defend them and wives respond to that loyalty with virtue and faithfulness. It is a stark contrast to Mrs. Wood who has dozens of notches on her bra. Even with the inhibition removed, I did not report all of the stuff I received on the Woods. The focus was on Stan Sniff, not one of Raemie’s exes lamenting the fact that he paid for her breast augmentation or the other ex (my be the same guy, who knows) who married her when she had a pile of debt, only for her to leave him once the debt was paid off. Exes are unreliable sources, but tell great stories. Given what I know about the subject of the stories I have little doubt that they are true.

Both Ray and Raemie Wood have a reputation for being homewreckers. Ray Wood had a reputation for being a bully, and as recently as a week before election was threatening management personnel in their stations with regard to supporting Sniff. I suppose these two deserve each other.

For the rest of you that have had your spouse attacked by Stan Sniff and the second floor, It is likely Ray Wood with other people supporting him. I was told months ago that Wood, Christopher Brandon Ford, Horton, someone who may or may not have been Kubel and Kevin Vest were celebrating “F–king with people’s families”. I now know what one family they were referring to was, as my source did not divulge that part. (The quote embedded above is from a second source as the 2nd Floor now has leaks everywhere)

Lyndon Raymond “the Executioner” Wood needs a psychological evaluation after his retirement is complete.

Remember Valerie Hill? She is a former Assistant Sheriff that may as well have been trained in IRAQ on media relations.

Valerie Hill was Stan Sniff’s first Assistant Sheriff and she is cut from the same cloth as the reviled serpent Kevin Vest. Apparently Hill was dispatched to deliver the official line about the cancellation of the Blue Light Ceremony.

Needless to say, Hill showed why she was one of Sniff’s Assistant Sheriff’s as her spin was horrendous.

#1 Undertaker DiYoyo was retiring on 6/1/2018 before Sniff railed him in to extending through December. Diyoyo’s retirement was planned and not unexpected.

#2 She claims they are short staffed. That is rich as the Jurupa Valley Station seemed to have enough bodies for the KPMG Dog and Pony Show. (and, ahem 4,000 people work there?)

#3 She claims other agencies were contacted. At least three other agencies at the time I wrote this blog indicated they were NOT Contacted about filling in for the Blue Light Ceremony. This appears to be an outright lie. (Imagine that)

What Sniff is doing is similar to an angry pastor cancelling Easter Services to get back at his congregation for hiring another pastor.

Over the period of time I have been writing about Stan Sniff, Valerie Hill’s name came up many times and usually with swear words in the same sentence. It is always scary when you meet an empty shell.

#4 The Blue Light Ceremonies are planned well in advance and a department of 4,000 people would likely yield a ton of volunteers willing to fill in to make sure that the widows(ers) of the fallen are honored and helped with the healing process.

The excuses ring hollow. The truth that we are sure Mrs. Hill knows is that Sheriff Sniff is pouting in his office thinking of all the ways he can get even with everyone, why not destroy an event just because you can.

Sniff is seeking to get even with everyone that did not kiss his ring. Scuttling a Blue Light Ceremony is the latest in the Sheriff’s long established pattern of missing funerals or bedside visits to seriously injured people. He literally does not give a rip at all.

One allegation I never put in print is that Sniff sleeps on the floor or in a couch. This sort of bizarre and very egocentric behavior is consistent with the make I’ve had on Sniff for a while.

Perhaps when he is laying on the floor tonight looking up at the ceiling he will think through what he is doing to seal his legacy.

Perhaps Kevin Bash should hear about this?

Karen Spiegel?

John Taviglione?

Marion Ashley?

How about all the pretty people in the desert that endorsed Sniff, I am sure they would all not like to have to be held to account for their part in this?

Sniff is doing EXACTLY what I predicted would happen:

In your face promotions of disdained department personnel

Money games

Declining More than Half the meager amounts they received of CCW Requests even after “Finding” the money to process CCW applications faster than in two years.

Having to be talked out of shuttering the CCW Unit altogether.

More #FAKENEWS from his staff since election

Cancelling vacations

Forcing Bianco Supporters to work yellow days on holidays.

Canceling Events out of Spite

bizarre staffing decisions and meddling with station level staffing decisions

The Narcissistic Rage and enabling continue…
