On April 17, the county of San Diego is scheduled to vote on whether to join the Federal lawsuit against California’s sanctuary state law. Supervisor Dianne Jacob is spearheading the vote and expects it to pass on a 3-2 margin.
Opposing this vote is a serious dirtbag of a San Diego County Sheriff, Bill Gore. Remember way back in 1992, the Ruby Ridge standoff between the Weaver family and the FBI? Bill Gore was the agent who wrote the rules of engagement for that fiasco that allowed the shooting of a woman armed with an infant. He, along with four other agents, refused to testify before Congress by invoking 5th Amendment rights against self-incrimination.
Next, remember way back in 9.11.2001? Oh yeah, baby, the 9/11 hijackers. The 900-page Congressional report on the hijackings faulted Gore, special agent in charge of the San Diego FBI office, for negligence. Gore defends himself:
The congressional report on the Sept. 11 attacks is rife with inaccuracies and greatly exaggerates the possibility the terrorist acts could have been prevented, according to the former head of the FBI’s San Diego office.
In an interview, former Special Agent in Charge Bill Gore asserted there was no evidence the FBI missed opportunities to catch two of the hijackers who for months lived in San Diego.
He also said there was no evidence that anyone, including Saudi officials, knowingly assisted the terrorists.
“I believe the joint intelligence committee jumped to conclusions not supported by the facts of the FBI investigation,” Gore said. “I was convinced by the time I left the FBI [in] January that there was no Al Qaeda support network in San Diego prior to or after 9/11, and that no group of people wittingly helped the hijackers in furtherance of the 9/11 attacks.”
In its 900-page report, the joint panel of the House and Senate intelligence committees criticized the pre-Sept. 11 counterterrorism analysis done by the FBI and CIA. The report suggests there were several missed opportunities to foil the attacks, and that alleged intelligence failures were especially obvious in San Diego, where two hijackers were known to a longtime FBI informant. …
Gore, who retired from the FBI in January and took a job with the San Diego County district attorney’s office, said there also was no proof that hijackers Almihdhar and Alhazmi lived in San Diego for any reason other than its Islamic community and the opportunity to take flying lessons in a region with great year-round weather.
Gore acknowledged that the two future hijackers did come into contact with a trusted FBI informant, but said there was no reason for the informant to bring that fact to the attention of his FBI handler because Almihdhar and Alhazmi did nothing publicly that would suggest they were violent extremists.
That FBI informant is… for fuck’s sake, why do we even have an FBI?…
Abdussattar Shaikh, who had been an unpaid FBI informant for six years in 2000, rented a room to Mihdhar for about a month and Hazmi for seven. The Office of the Inspector General report noted that Shaikh told his FBI handler that the pair were quiet and “good Muslims.” He gave the handler their first names only and the agent never got their full names. The report said that if the agent had been more curious about the two men living with his informant, their names could have been checked through government databases that may have identified them as terrorists. According to the Office of the Inspector General report, the bureau cut ties with Shaikh in July 2003 and paid him $100,000 for his services. …
A newspaper reporter found the FBI informant before the FBI could. Lovely. Sounds like Shaikh was a double agent for the Saudis. He started out as an “unpaid informant”? That means the FBI had dirt on him and made a deal in lieu of prosecution. Anybody sufficiently law-abiding to risk his life for the cops on principle alone is sufficiently law-abiding to not have “person of interest” buddies. I’m shocked he quietly assisted the hijackers like a “good Muslim” would instead of alerting the authorities.
And Special Agent In Charge Bill Gore was running that show. He “voluntarily” left the FBI in 2003, about the same time as the 9/11 investigations wrapped up and about the same time as Shaikh got paid $100k for services rendered to the American people.
Gore transitioned quickly to San Diego’s district attorney office… no red flags there… and was elected Sheriff in 2010. Local scandals followed national scandals, most notably the Hannah Anderson kidnapping in 2013, a very interesting incident from the Red Pilled perspective. Check it out:
According to released warrants, DiMaggio received letters from Hannah Anderson which were found in his home by investigators, and exchanged over a dozen calls with her before the murders occurred. However, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said Anderson was “a victim in every sense of the word” and did not willingly go with DiMaggio. Investigators do not suspect any complicity on her part. Gore also suggested that authorities may never be able to fully determine the reason for DiMaggio’s crime rampage.
With all that for a background… Gore claims that cooperating with Federal immigration enforcement is bad for public safety. Quoting from the first linked article,
San Diego Supervisors are expected to discuss the matter on April 17th in a closed-door meeting with County Counsel. But while Supervisor Jacob agues that the Trump administration’s push to force local law enforcement officers to stringently enforce federal immigration mandates would increase public safety, Sheriff Bill Gore suggests it would have the opposite effect, making communities less safe by making immigrants afraid to report crimes.
Gawdammit, the illegal immigrants ARE the crimes! And Trump isn’t forcing anybody to do anything; the state law prohibits voluntary cooperation with ICE, a clear-cut obstruction of justice. Sigh, moving on to his cronyism:
But San Diego County’s Sheriff, Bill Gore, told East County Magazine in an interview last week taped for airing on KNSJ radio that California’s sanctuary state law already allows ample cooperation between his department and federal authorities regarding immigrants who have committed serious crimes, thanks to changes that Sheriff Gore helped to negotiate directly with Governor Jerry Brown. Those allow his jail staff to turnover immigrants who have been convicted of, or arrested for more than 800 serious crimes.
So, Gore and “Moonbeam” Brown are in bed together. Of course Gore will cooperate with ICE as soon as it saves him the cost of incarcerating a convicted felon. Gore’s opposition to this vote has nothing to do with law enforcement and everything to do with covering his political ally. Why would Sheriff Gore do that? Because all the dirt in this dirtbag’s bag is about to explode on him and he needs his allies right now:
Article dated April 5, 2018, the San Diego Union Tribune:
“Sheriff Gore said he considered firing his rival for office, but thought it would look bad” (Actual headline. Gotta love it.)
Tensions between San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore and the deputy trying to take over his job — Cmdr. Dave Myers — are heightening, with the incumbent saying he’d like his challenger gone.
“I wish Dave would take a leave of absence and go work somewhere else,” Gore told editors and reporters at an editorial board meeting of The San Diego Union-Tribune.
Myers said that his relationship with his boss has been acrimonious since he gave him a heads up that he was launching his campaign.
“Ever since that day, he has marginalized me,” Myers said.
Tension reached a new level last week with Gore telling the newspaper that he considered firing Myers.
“It crossed my mind. To what end? It would be a big news story. ‘Sheriff fires opponent in sheriff’s race,’” Gore said, suggesting a potential headline.
But deposing Myers would have been a bad idea, Gore explained.
“He’s got civil service protections. Plus how would that look? Oh, the sheriff has fired the guy he’s running against. What’s he got to hide, why is he afraid of this guy?” Gore said.
Besides being at odds on the campaign trail, the candidates have been in conflict at work and their once-friendly relationship has crumbled.
“I promoted him three times. I’ve been to his house for dinner, I considered us friends. I’m disappointed in the tack that he’s taken,” Gore, 70, of Mission Hills, said in a follow-up interview on Wednesday.
Myers, 56, of La Mesa, has been with the Sheriff’s Department for more than three decades, was reassigned after he launched his campaign. Once a commander with 400 people reporting to him, he now has no subordinates. He retains his $176,000 salary.
Myers is no longer responsible for court security and has been given a new office. Myers says it’s a “broom closet” whole Gore notes it has two windows. Myers is now handling various off-beat projects, including developing a floor plan for an upcoming department move.
Myers said he’s being marginalized because he’s been vocal about recent scandals involving the department, including a rash of jail deaths and the handling of the case of a deputy who was accused of groping more than a dozen women on the beat.
“Anybody that talks about true issues and questions his authority is the enemy,” Myers said. “But if he wants to fire me, fire me. Let’s hash it out.”
Gore, the sheriff since 2009, said that Myers is undermining the department in order to help his campaign. Before Myers was removed from the chain of command, he participated in meetings where the department’s weaknesses were discussed — including issues that could be used as fodder in political attacks.
“Dave doesn’t work well with others,” Gore said. “It’s that simple.”
