Parallel Realities
Attorney Stephan Volker has done a wonderful job of misleading the public. From telling us repeatedly that this is an "ancient Oak grove" to now telling us how a Judge ruled, he has sought to deceive the public. Well, he has done a terrific job thanks to a lazy media unwilling to vet out lies.
One based on fiction, the other in fact.

As lawyers go, Stephan Volker is not a very good one. Somehow he has greatly misconstrued what Judge Miller clearly stated. While the Judge said no permanent structures could be constructed near the site, she left open the option of erecting a temporary fence to keep out the lawbreakers. Attorney Volker though interpreted it as a clear cut victory. This from the same individual who has continually labeled this modern Oak Grove planted by the UC, an ancient one.

Wow! This is an “ancient Oak Grove?” How do you figure that Mr. Volker? It seems you have failed to read the guidelines by which truly ancient groves are governed. Aren’t you supposed to seek out justice as an officer of the court? Instead you have perpetuated lies that have caused irevocable harm to the University and this state. Your ego is bigger than Memorial Stadium.

As stated by CBS 5 News:
“Volker said Miller, following a two-hour court hearing last week, refused to limit the scope of her preliminary injunction to bar only "permanent" changes to the environment.The order therefore prohibits the university from barring the public from the oak grove by building a "temporary" fence.Miller's original preliminary injunction was issued on Jan. 29.”

Interesting, nowhere did I interpret the ruling to mean no temporary fence could be constructed. Apparently Mr. Volker specializes in adding insult to injury.

Cal Media relations director Marie Felde had a decidedly different interpretation of the ruling, backed up by UC attorneys. "The judge did not accept the petitioners' proposed language that sought to limit the university's entry into contracts and rejected their language that sought to restrict the campus from securing the site by installing temporary fencing or other temporary means.”

This is very interesting. The question becomes who can you trust? A not so slick talking lawyer out to make a name for himself, or a selfless campus official tasked with defending the truth? I'll let you decide.

Tell us Volker, who is really funding your smear campaign? Is it the tree sitters? No, I seriously doubt the bunch together has much more that thirty seven cents. No, it must be these rich folks. The protectors of property values. Whatever happened to doing something for the greater good? You make me sick!

Now what makes this so upsetting is the fact that the mainstream media gladly perpetuate these lies by offering the attention seeker Volker the spotlight. Rather than accept the truth, they seek sensationalist stories, such as the ones Volker is only too happy to offer.

This is merely the opening salvo of justice that will seek to hold Mr. Volker and his woefully malicious falsehoods in check. Someday the truth will be known and people like Mr. Volker will have to seek fame elsewhere.

Hey, is there anyone home?

A recent running pus, i mean running wolf story:

This is completely true, and just happened to me tonight, thurs, 10-16-08.

This is the letter I sent to every endorser of running bith for mayor:

Ms Sheehan,
I was just mobbed and attacked on the Streets of Berkeley by Zachary Running Wolf, and a pack of his "indian Warriors." His web site claims that you support his election as Mayor of Berkeley. I am shocked and disappointed that you support such a violent person.

I was going to vote for you, until I ran into what happens when you exercise free speech around one of you allies: you get mobbed and attacked. Why did running wolf attack me? Because I had the termity to disagree when he said my opinion did not count, because I am merely a "visitor" in running wolf's country.

I was talking to my friend Kamal, outside of his store, Fred's Market, on Telegraph and Dwight, when running wolf loudly interjected himself into our conversation, and claimed "victory" for his perspective by disenfranchising everyone but him, the great indian leader. Kamal saw the whole violent attack of running wolf and his mob, or should I say pack?

I hold you responsible for your part in empowering this violent person, and his attack on me. I will widely publicize your part in empowering his violence when he really hurts someone, which appears to be inevitable.

So there it is: I fucking got mobbed by running for dog-catcher's pack. One of them sneak attacked me, landing a fucking hard kick on my right leg, fucking up my god damned knee.

Fuck running dog
