A place we can discuss, bloviate and debate issues and topics of interest.
Note to the FUE, Dan Miller and Terry Lamphier are not swapping places as you claim in your most recent rant about the community you moved into and attack daily like a little child. Terry Lamphier will be spending time in jail soon for child porn on a government computer in his former county supervisor's office and Dan Miller will not. Terry Lamphier will be a registered sex offender, Dan Miller will not. Terry Lamphier will not be a Grass Valley City Council member for long if he goes forward with his swearing in, a recall will be started asap. Dan Miller will uphold his oath of office where Terry Lamphier did not. Terry Lamphier is not an honorable person and Dan Miller is.
A safe and Happy New Year to all!
Below is a post from the SFR blog about Terry Lamphier, It's amazing that some are so void of rational thought. Just more grand conspiracy theories about Lamphier "the victim" of hacking and being set up. The Nevada County DA is not stupid, nor is the State computer crime lab that did the detailed work on Lamphier's County computer, nor the Judge.Even Yubanet has provided the info and stated that the facts show Lampheir was in his County office, at his computer, using his County computer immediately before and after the porn sites were search, visited and download on Lamphiers computer. Yes, it's one grand conspiracy involving the Nevada County IT Department, the Sherriff, NCSO, the State computer crime lab, the DA that reviewed the evidence and the Judge that viewed the initial evidence for cause and approved the search warrants. Also add in that Lamphier made self incrementing statements and an admission to County staff when first confronted about this, as reported in the initial stories, but not absorbed by the conspiracy theorists. Curtis Walker posted, "Terry the target, wondering out loud if they hacked into his computer system before they dropped off the anonymous letter, give me a break".Hey Curtis, do a little review and reading of the facts provide so far and get a clue.
Message to Local Liberals! Terry Lamphier's political career is over. Done. Please move on. That is all.
You can't make this stuff up. Pelline cut and pasted the comments here as some sort of "point" about the "good ol' boys" he claims run everything including their secret handshake in GV. What hoot!
Are you mocking me? Don't you understand that I am OK with child pornography as long as it is by Democrats. After all, our local Democrats support child pornographers, so what is the problem with you all? Are you some of those good old boys who still think child pornography is bad?
Calm down and have a Patron!
A prediction for 2015.Terry Lamphier will face additional sexual abuse charges, they will be added to the three charges of child porn already filed by the Nevada County DA. Here's the clue that is in the charging statements for the three counts already filed by the DA."NOTICE: The People intend to introduce evidence of prior sexual abuse incidents at trial pursuant to evidence code section 1108". Information about additional incidents of misuse of government computers by former Supervisor Lamphier will come out, including additional incidents of porn and child porn. Terry Lamphier will end up cutting a plea deal with the DA. Lamphier will do this to try and avoid jail and to try and avoid being required to register as a sex offender. Lamphier will claim he is completely innocent, but is making the plea deal to avoid jail and being required to register as a sex offender.If Terry Lamphier makes the stupid, egotistical mistake of moving forward and being sworn in as a Grass Valley City Council member he will face a recall effort and he will be removed from office.
I have a feeling that this year is going to be a "non-stop giggly parade of persistent asshattery." Just as the sitting city council fears.
A valid prediction. Agree 100%. He will be sworn in and he will be recalled, unless he resigns first.
My prediction is that he will insist he is innocent and demand a trial. He will run out of money and supporters very quickly when the evidence is revealed, and the people will be required to provide a public defender to defend him from this nonsense. The trial will be very short and he will be off to San Quentin for three years where people like him are given special treatment. Over and done by Labor Day 2015.
Come on now. In America we are innocent until proven guilty.
The Union should do a FOIA request for the pics that Lamphier downloaded.
Come on now Todd, have you not seen Keith Royal on TV saying that they found downloads of 6-10 year old girls on his computer? Royal also specifically referred to "certain admissions" that TL has made. Anyone with an ounce of character or concern for their community would resign their public office after being charged with these crimes. The Union and Yubanet have both done a FOIA request and have the photos. Lamphier's supporters will be shocked and horrified when they finally see the facts. This has all been publicly documented.
You can convict him in your dreams but until he is put through the judicial process or he chooses to admit or resign, there is no reason to disallow justice. Of course the charges are horrendus and I too am outraged about the allegations. We must not be hasty in the system of justice.
Not trying to deny him justice Todd. This is about what is best for our children and the City of Grass Valley. How do you think we look to the world as we seat an accused child pornographer on our City Council? What do you think that anyone considering moving here, or starting a business here thinks? What do you think our children think? Even the low life Anthony Weiner resigned from his elected office, and he didn't even commit a crime! This is only about Terry Lamphier doing the right thing and solving his legal problems as a private citizen not an elected official. Terry Lamphier knows damn well what he did. The question is, will he drag Nevada County through the mud before he finds the integrity to admit it?
You ask "will he drag Nevada County through the mud before he finds the integrity to admit it?"Answer is simple Terry Lamphier already has and continues to drag our community and Grass Valley through the mud and he will continue to do so. Lamphier will continue to do so because of his massive ego and his true self serving nature. Lampier has disgraced himself, his family, his girlfriend, Nevada County, Grass Valley and his quickly shrinking short list of supporters, but Lamphier doesn't care. TV news and print media far and wide are cover this story and we sure look bad. Nothing like nice Christmas shots of downtown Grass Valley with the reporter talking child porn and "Lamphier is not returning our calls" for comment to bring tourists to Grass Valley.It makes me sick to read Lamphier's self serving press releases about how wonderful he thinks he is and see he touts working with our local youth and teens as a mentor. Lamphier needs to do the right thing for our community and himself, he needs to back away from being sworn in as a Grass Valley City Council member for the good of everyone, but his ego will not allow him to do so. You don't see any posts on line supporting Lamphier now that the first three charges have been filed by the DA, expect more charges in the future. This is because the majority of those that did support Lamphier are no longer supporting him since our DA filed charges. These clueless supports posted endlessly about a grand conspiracy to hack Lamphier's computers, that the Sheriff was part of some plot "to get Lamphier" for political reasons. Go back and read Lamphier's former supporters posts on The Union, Yubanet and Pelline's blog, where are these supporter posters at now? I hope they enjoy the crow they are eating and the feeling of betrayal they have from Lamphier's lack of integrity and deceit. Lamphier needs to answer two simple questions, he owes the public answers to these two simple questions: 1. Terry Lamphier did you every search, view or download any porn on your government computers, including your office computer at the Rood Center?2. Terry Lamphier did you violate your Nevada County Board of Supervisors oath of office, the one you raised your hand and swore to uphold? Why won't Lamphier answer these two simple questions? The public deserves the truth.If Terry Lamphier goes forward with being sworn in to the Grass Valley City Council a recall will be started asap and he will be removed from office.
Lamphier is finished politically in Nevada County. How he conducts himself in the next few weeks will determine if he is finished in every other way also.
Do some basic math. Is it possible that Lamphier is trying to get vested in PERS and needs a little more time in elected office to get vested? Could this be the real motivation for Lamphier to try and hang on as long as possible?
You got it! The PERS retirement is all that he wants. Reportedly, in the past 60 days since he was elected, his only communication with the City of Grass Valley has been to inquire about his PERS account. By law, an employee needs 5 years of employment to qualify for benefits. Lamphier has 4 years, needs one more from Grass Valley. A real winner we have here folks.
I don't think the city council is in PERS. A person needs five years in for it to be vested.
City Council time applies to PERS, Lamphier needs one more year to vest in PERS.
Just back from Kmart. Went to locally buy some socks, a few tee shirts a few quarts of motor oil and window cleaner. OOOOPs, no plastic bags for you, but we will sell you a paper bag for ten cents. No thank you, keep you ten cent paper bag and restock my items, I'm not buying locally today because of the new anti bag law Grass Valley just put in place. It's not just grocery stores folks.Mean time the effort to over turn the State plastic bag probation has collected enough signatures and will be on the next general ballot it seems. Until then the State is not enacting the State wide ban on plastic bags, but we have one in Grass Valley now. Placer County and Amazon here I come, along with my shopping money.
The ban is now statewide. Don't punish Grass Valley, boot the democrats sorry asses from our Legislature in Sacramento. Also, gas prices will be going way up and the other 900 new laws those sorry bastard passed as well. Good luck.
Do believe the State ban is on hold for now, Placer County will be getting more of my shopping now. Signatures have been turned in to place the State repeal on the ballot. Need to do the same thing for the insane Prop 47 that the Lib's funded and pasted and If you're an illegal in California time to get your drivers license now too, another stupid Lib effort.
I am using old bags. They work fine. When they rip, I get a new one. I do miss the plastic ones, but have as tore in the basement.
Thanks Anon. I didn't know this. Today I put a bag of plastic bags I saved in the car to use when I shop. They're strong, and easy to carry many at the same time. Amazing how a few people manage to get their elected morons to pass laws and bigger burdens on others. BMW
I have a different take on Terry Lamphier. I want Lamphier to move forward and be sworn in to the Grass Valley City Council. I want Lamphier to fight the charges the District Attorney has filed and the additional charges that the DA will file as the list of charges will grow. I want Lamphier in court and I want the DA to get the truth about Lamphier's past and his hidden, sick history out to the public at trial. I want to see Lamphier's long time girlfriend and his ex-wife on the stand, under oath answering the DA's questions about Lamphier and his past. Lamphier's ex-wife will likely shed some disturbing light on the real Terry Lamphier vs. the one he clams to be. I want to see the last of his supporters come to grips with the realty of Lamphier and his actions, his deceit and his hidden history that will be exposed in court. I want those Lampher supporters that made crazy conspiracy, computer hacking, "set up" claims, those that attacked the Sheriff and others to climb under a rock in shame and disgust as this unfolds. I want Lamphier to go to court, get convicted, get recalled from the city council to send a message and a lesson to others. So Mr. Lamphier please continue down the destructive, deceitful, ego driven road you have chosen to go down. The truth will be hard for some to believe, but the truth will come out. In the end Lamphier will be alone and shunned due to his own actions.
For the sake of our community, Lamphiers family, friends, the voters and Lamphier himself I hope he does not follow this path. I hope he does the right thing for everyone and cancels his Grass Valley swearing in. If not the personal and community damage will increase as more comes out. Most likely that local media and Sacramento TV news and media will be present at the swearing in, more bad public relations and damage to the community will occur, further staining Grass Valley.
There is a certain appeal in seeing the truth come out about who and what Lamphier really is, but I don't see him allowing that to happen. As a person with a demonstrated absence of honor or integrity, he will continue to hide in the shadows. It would likely speed up the process to engage his ex wife and estranged son. One would hope that the longer he delays the inevitable, increases the cost of his prosecution and the damage to the people of Nevada County, the more people are going to demand that he go to prison and become a registered sex offender. His chances of an attractive plea bargain are diminishing by the day.
He will run for cover when the evidence is revealed. Done. End of sordid story.
I'm betting Terry Lamphier will listen to the advice of his attorney, family and what few friends he still has left and announces he will not be sworn in on Monday. If not I hope he is ready to face the people and the media Monday. Hoping Terry Lamphier at last does the right thing.
So now the last two Democrat Party’s Dist. 3 Supervisors have left the office under scandalous circumstances.
Real name thank you.
