Chandler and Harbicht: Are the Pro-Property Rights Pals also the Cell Tower Twins?

Chandler and Harbicht, the pro-property rights pals. Just what exactly are they talking about?

We hear a whole lot about how candidates Roger Chandler and Bob "Bulldozer" Harbicht are all about your property rights. I think it is safe to assume that what they mean by this is allowing the biggest home any developer wants to build. Roger and Bob will ignore the pleas of those who will have to bear the burden of living next door to a single family hotel, done in the name of profiteering for developers.

And now the two dudes are claiming your property rights are "under attack." Which, of course, they will be once these characters allow a McMansion to be build right next door to your house.

Last Saturday Arcadia heard all that again when Roger and Bob campaigned at the Arcadia High School Chinese Parents' Booster Club Fundraiser and Chinese New Year Celebration. At this event, Roger, whose ticket was fully funded by the City of Arcadia, went table to table, wearing his City Councilmember pin, passing out flyers and ingratiating himself to all the Asian parents there, all on the taxpayer's dime.

Bulldozer Bob chugged along not too far behind, brandishing a City Council pin as well. Done even though he is not currently serving in that capacity, or legally authorized to wear it. Bob was escorted by a member of the AHS Chinese Parents Booster Club for language interpretive services.

Both had their "Property Rights First!" battle cry going on that day. And remember, your tax dollars paid for Roger to be at this event, representing the City of Arcadia. It doesn't sound very ethical to use taxpayer money to attend an event for the purpose of political campaigning. But that's our boy. Arcadia can be proud of Roger Chandler's easy ethical convenience.

So let's take a closer look at some of that list of property rights Roger and Bob are eager to protect once elected to a Peacock Throne on the City Council.

Some might think it's a property right to build big houses. However, that is not all of it. The people who would have to live in the dark shadows of those big houses have property rights as well, and neither Chandler nor Harbicht care anything about them. They are selective about this, and only choose to listen to the sweet sound of money.

Roger and Bob have consistently voted to repeal tree protection ordinances in the name of property rights. Such annoying things get in the way of those building huge McMansions, limiting the amount of profit concerned developers can make.

Some might think that it's a property right to have a circle driveway that holds 10 cars for certain poor and elderly couple's 6,100 square foot McManny. But again, it's not. If you want to live next to a parking lot, go set up your tent at the shopping mall.

There's one more property right the big house boys are hokey pokeying about, and the residents of Arcadia would have to be bat blind not to see this one coming. Cell Towers. Big, tall, obtrusive, medically questionable cell towers, and right next door to your home.

Perhaps you think I'm making this up?

Roger was the lone vote for a 54' tall cell tower proposed by Verizon to be placed in a residential neighborhood last year.  The owner of the Church at the corner of 1st Avenue and Lemon needs the $2,000 in yearly revenue it would produce to stay afloat, but the neighbors vehemently protested and the majority of council voted against it. Verizon has now sued and the City of Arcadia is still hip deep in litigation over that one. A change in council would allow for a settlement with a 54' tall tower to be built in that residential neighborhood.

But what evidence do I have that Bob the Bloody Bulldozer would vote for a cell tower in a residential neighborhood?  Who would be so crazy to be in favor of a cell tower in their own backyard? You guessed it! Bob himself!

At the top of this post is a photo from the front of Bob's house. Circled in red is a cell tower glaring above the roof line of his own home like Darth Vader's hissing head. Bob has his very own cell tower next to his very own backyard. How would you like to live near it? That's what Roger and Bob call property rights. The right of every homeowner to have the cell tower of their dreams right there, in their own backyard. With nothing they can legally do to stop it.

If Roger and Bob are elected, you can also bet that Sho Tay will vote with the tower team to protect the property rights of every homeowner to have their own 54' tall cell tower. Whether they want one or not.

Don't worry, Sho Tay has been appointed and won't have to run, so he's not beholden to the wishes or desires of his constituents. You really don't think he'll go back on his word on cell towers? Try it and see what happens.

The HOAs trusted Two Timing Tay when he campaigned in 2014. He told all of them that he would vote in favor of smaller homes in the HOAs. His way of showing his appreciation to the HOAs for helping get him elected? He has voted against them every time the issue comes up.

So who's ready to get better cell service in Arcadia? Be sure to wear your sun screen.

    2. After reading this article I drove around looking at the cell towers in Arcadia. Hard as I tried I couldn't find piles of bodies under them. I searched the internet for "Cell tower deaths." The only deaths were from climbers falling. This sounds like more fake news aimed at Chandler and Harbicht in the hopes that people will forget what a pompous moron Tom Beck is. Mr. Beck wants to sit in his huge house and tell everyone else theirs has to be smaller. No basements, no circular driveways, no anything he and his HOA don't approve of. Meantime, all that he and his supporters can conjure is the spectre of the "evil cell tower!" likening it to Darth Vader...really? Big bad developers that want to build homes almost as big as Tommy Beck's. The nerve of others to want to live in the nicest home they can afford. Face it folks Beck is grasping at straws here.

  11. Mueller charges lawyer with lying about interaction with Rick Gates

    Special counsel Robert Mueller has filed a charge against a lawyer for lying to investigators about his interaction with former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates in September 2016.

    Alex Van der Zwaan is expected to plead guilty Tuesday afternoon.

    He is also accused of lying about the failure to turn over an email communication to the special counsel's office. He was speaking with investigators about his work with Skadden Arps in 2012 when the firm did work for the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice to prepare a report on the trial of Yulia Tymoshenko.

    Van der Zwaan has a plea hearing scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at US District Court in Washington, DC.

    Judge that accepted Flynn's guilty plea; recused himself one week later.
    The new judge in Flynn's case has questioned and ordered the evidence about the circumstances that Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI to be presented to him.
    Judges rarely call back into question decisions made by their predecessors.
    Here's hoping that the FBI kept clean notes on the meetings.

    2. U.S. Officials Tell World Leaders To Ignore Trump's Tweets

      President Donald Trump’s tweets not only trigger worries at home. They rattle leaders around the world.

      But U.S. officials reportedly tried to reassure global policy representatives at an international conference in Germany over the weekend, urging them to pay no attention to the president’s Twitter rants.

      The U.S. actually is angry with the Kremlin over interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, despite Trump’s Twitter denials, American politicians and officials told foreign policy leaders in Munich, The Washington Post reported. America also remains firmly committed to Europe. And, to be clear, the U.S. doesn’t plan on dropping a nuclear bomb on North Korea, the U.S. leaders said.

      “The values are the same, the relationships are the same,” insisted Rep. Michael Turner (R-Ohio), the Post reported.

      German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said Saturday he no idea how to judge U.S. intentions. “Is it deeds? Is it words? Is it tweets?” he asked.

      The disconnect between Trump’s tweets and U.S. government leaders often has been apparent.

A study 'A possible impact of communication tower on wildlife birds and bees'-- conducted by expert committee of Union ministry of environment and forest-- attributes the drop in number of birds in Indore, Bhopal, Jabalpur, Ujjain and other cities to increase in use of mobile phones and electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitting from communication towers.

Why would anyone in District 5 vote for Chandler when he, in the name of property rights, voted to allow someone to put a cell tower on their property in a residential neighborhood in District 5? Again, Chandler votes to protect the “property rights” of a special interest group (this time Verizon) over the pleas of residents.

This blog is clearly run, operated and is friends of certain individuals in political positions. Pretty sad that journalists can't be objective anymore. But are bloggers considered journalists anyway? The fact that no data shows up on Alexa or Similar Web for this blog just goes to show how little traction it actually has.

  22. Russians will interfere with election everywhere, so will the Brits, the Chinese and the American. That's why we have CIA and State Department to mess with others, and DoD DHS to protect ourselves. What the Russian did in 2016, was just lobbying. They might broke a few rules due to inexperience, but so did the Clinton Campaign and the Trump Campaign. This is definitely witch hunt.
