Volume 48 - No. 14
By Matthew Fabritius
There has been an incredible amount of news coverage dedicated in the last year to issues relating to the Russian governmentâ€™s meddling in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. The primary cause for this concern relates to a joint report released on January 6, 2017, by the CIA, FBI, NSA and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. The report details the agenciesâ€™ collective judgment that Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered several espionage operations that sought to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election and collect information on both the Democratic The The Paper Paper -- 760.747.7119 760.747.7119

and Republican parties. While this act of cyber espionage is a relatively new experience for the United States when dealing with Russia, the United States has been dealing with Russian espionage activities ever since the Bolsheviks took power in the Russian Revolution of 1917.
Before the Russian Revolution, the United States and Russia had been on relatively friendly terms. Russia had been a hereditary monarchy for well over 300 years with the ruling Romanov family having complete control over every aspect of Russian society. The Russian Empire expanded from Eastern Europe, through
Russia itself and then all the way down through Kazakhstan and Mongolia to the northern borders of Afghanistan and China. Most of these tangential territories were then simply later absorbed into the early Soviet Union and expanded further in the Second World War during Stalinâ€™s push farther west into Europe to capture Berlin. Most Russian citizens in the Romanov era were peasant farmers serving on rural plantations owned by Russian aristocrats with a smaller minority serving as either general merchants or factory workers in major industrial cities like Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and
While the United States operated as a constitutional republic and Russia as a feudal monarchy, there existed a certain friendly rapport between the two countries during the Romanov era since the U.S. government had purchased Alaska from the Kremlin for $7.2 million in March of 1867. The Russians and Americans had never been in any particular dispute over territories as a result of being physically isolated from each other, which meant that the political drama between the two countries had always been virtually non-existent.

After the Russian Civil War and the Bolshevik takeover in 1917, the relationship between Russia and America changed drastically. A coalition of Allied Powers including America, Britain, France, Italy, China, Japan and a ragtag collection of Eastern European nations came together from 1918-1925 to expel Lenin and his revolutionary Red Army from power. The Allied Powers feared during the First World War that the Central Powers of Germany, Austro-Hungary, Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire would come together to conquer Russia in the wake of the chaos of the Revolution and then subsequently invade the Western Allies of Italy, France and Britain with the full combined power of a Russo-Germanic army. Beyond this, there was a general fear among the Allied Powers after the First World War that if working class citizens saw the unchallenged victory of the Soviet Revolution, it would inevitably inspire communist coups within their own nations.
Naturally, this had been the general intent of the various Communist International (colloquially referred to as “the Comintern”) groups when Lenin received extensive funding from Germany to overthrow the Romanovs and left his place of Swiss exile in an armored German train from Zürich to St. Petersburg in April of 1917. The exact financial payout Lenin received from the German government to support his political agitation is still widely contested between different historical scholars, although
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy!
A few years ago, my wife and I moved into a retirement development on Florida's southeast coast. We are living in the "Delray/ Boca/Boynton Golf, Spa, Bath and Tennis Club on Lake Fake-a-Hachee". There are 3,000 lakes in Florida; only three are real. Our biggest retirement concern was time management. What were we going to do all day? No longer. Let me assure you, passing the time is not a problem.
Our days are eaten up by simple, daily activities. Just getting out of our car takes 15 minutes. Trying to find where we parked takes 20 minutes. It takes a half-hour in the check-out line in WalMart, and 1 hour to return the item the next day.
Let me take you through a typical day: We get up at 5:00 am, have a quick breakfast and join the early morning Walk-and-Fart Club. There are about 30 of us, and rain or shine, we walk around the streets, all talking at once.
the figure has been generally ascertained to have been at least in the ballpark of millions of German Marks. The German government at the time under the ardent monarchist Kaiser Wilhelm II saw Lenin’s communist revolution as a way to undermine the efficacy of the Russian government. The basic idea from the Kaiser was that if Lenin was to overthrow the Romanovs in the midst of the First World War, then the Russian government would completely collapse and make it easier for the German military to conquer Russia. However, Kaiser Wilhelm was only half right. While Lenin was able to effectively overthrow the Romanov Dynasty, the Russian government did not collapse, but was rather only made tenfold stronger by the fanatical devotion of the communist militants who now occupied the highest rungs of power. Lenin proceeded to order the execution of the royal Romanov family in revenge for hanging his brother Alexander Ulyanov in 1887 after attempting to assassinate Tsar Alexander III, and then replaced the Tsarist Okhrana secret police force in December 1917 with the Soviet Cheka. The birth of the Cheka not only signaled the dawn of an organization that would go on to murder roughly 60 million innocent people under the direction of Joseph Stalin’s leadership, but also signaled the birth of an espionage organization that would become America’s most dangerous enemy in the Cold War. The origin of Russia’s perpetual campaign of spying on America began in those early days of December 1917 with one man: Felix Every development has some late risers who stay in bed until 6:00 am. After a nimble walk, avoiding irate drivers out to make us road kill, we go back home, shower and change for the next activity. My wife goes directly to the pool for her underwater Pilates class, followed by gasping for breath and CPR. I put on my 'Ask me about my Grandchildren' T-shirt, my plaid midcalf shorts, my white socks and sandals and go to the clubhouse lobby for a nice nap. Before we know it, it's time for lunch.
We go to Costco to partake of the many tasty samples dispensed by ladies in white hair nets. All free! After a filling lunch, if we don't have any doctor appointments, we might go to the flea market to see if any new white belts have come in or to buy a Rolex watch for $2.00.
We're usually back home by 2:00 pm to get ready for dinner. People start lining up for the early bird about 3:00 pm, but we get there by 3:45 because we're late eaters.
The dinners are very popular because of the large portions they serve. We can take home enough food for the next day's lunch and dinner, including extra bread, crackers, packets of mustard, relish, ketchup and Splenda, along with mints.
At 5:30 pm we're home, ready to watch the 6 o'clock news. By 6:30 pm we're fast asleep. Then we get up and make five or six trips to the bathroom during the night, and it's time to get up and start a new day all over again.
Doctor-related activities eat up most of
Dzerzhinsky. He served as a legendary top Old Bolshevik, one of the original communist vanguard revolutionaries who served directly side by side with Vladimir Lenin during the Russian Civil War. Despite his fanatical communist beliefs, Dzerzhinsky, also known as “Iron Felix”; was far from a working-class peasant. His family was of aristocratic descent, as they were members of the collapsed Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth’s royal dynasty which ruled most of Northeastern Europe from the 16th to 18th centuries. The Commonwealth’s demise in 1795 after a series of internal structural failures led to the partitioning of its territories by the German and Russian empires. The Germans gobbled up the western half of Poland, incorporating it into the Prussian dynasty, while the Russians took hold of Eastern Poland, Galicia, Northern Ukraine, Belarus and the Baltic States.
While Dzerzhinsky was certainly effective in organizing and maintaining the Soviet secret police apparatus, his revolutionary victories were to be short lived. Iron Felix had been true to his nickname as a hardened communist militant enduring years of some of the most brutal political repression in history. The success of his Bolshevik political activities came at a massive cost to his health. He had been chained within the walls of multiple Tsarist prisons in both Russia and Poland, been viciously beaten by Imperial prison guards causing permanent facial deformities and endured exile in both Western Russia and the frozen wastes of Siberia for well over a decade. He was pardoned as part of a catch-all
our retirement time. I enjoy reading old magazines in sub-zero temperatures in the waiting room, so I don't mind.
Calling for test results also helps the days fly by. It takes at least a half-hour just getting through the doctor's phone menu. Then there's the hold time until we're connected to the right party. Sometimes they forget we're holding, and the whole office goes off to lunch. Should we find we still have time on our hands, volunteering provides a rewarding opportunity to help the less fortunate.
Florida has the largest concentration of seniors under five feet tall and they need our help. I myself am a volunteer for 'The Vertically Challenged Over 80.' I coach their basketball team, The Arthritic Avengers. The hoop is only 41/2 feet from the floor. You should see the look of confidence on their faces when they make a slam dunk.
Food shopping is a problem for short seniors, or 'bottom feeders' as we call them, because they can't reach the items on the upper shelves. There are many foods they've never tasted. After shopping, most seniors can't remember where they parked their cars and wander the parking lot for hours while their food defrosts.
Lastly, it's important to choose a development with an impressive name. Italian names are very popular in Florida. They convey world travelers, uppity sophistication and wealth. Where would you rather live: Murray 's Condos or the Lakes of Venice? There's no difference -- they're both owned by Murray, who happens to be a cheap bastard.
amnesty by Lenin in 1917 and died in July 1926 of a heart attack at age 48 after having served as the head of the Cheka for 9 years.
Even though there is little evidence to substantiate that Iron Felix ever spied on the U.S. directly, his tenure as the head of the Cheka in the 1920’s was the primary inspiration for the leaders of the first major Russian spy operation on American soil: the Ware Group. While the Ware Group did not have the advantage of advanced computer and digital technology like the Putinist FSB does today, they were one of the most advanced and effective spy organizations in the world given that they were able to infiltrate the highest levels of the American government from the early 1930’s to the late 1940’s. The Ware Group was named after an American Marxist politician named Harold Ware who was born in New Jersey in 1889 and later grew up in Philadelphia. Ware was an American “red diaper baby” in that he grew up in a deeply devoted Marxist family since his mother Ella Bloor had been one of the original founders of the Communist Labor Party of America which later merged with other political factions to form Communist Party USA in 1919. Ware followed in his mother’s footsteps by joining as an active member of Communist Party USA as an adult, and later secured a federal work position in 1933 with President Roosevelt’s newly created

Join the Republican Club of Ocean Hills (RCOH) on Wednesday, April 18th, to meet Mark Meuser, 2018 Candidate for California Secretary of State! Meuser’s priority is to guide the Secretary of State’s office into the 21st Century, and believes the people of California deserve an open and accessible government that works for them, not against them. He will address “Voter Fraud in CA and Why We Need a New Secretary of State to Fix the Problem.” Meuser believes California needs a Secretary of State who will fight to protect the rights of citizens to vote and petition their government. And a Secretary of State who will fight to protect voting laws by assuring only eligible voters can vote. Meuser wants to restore voters’ confidence in open, secure, and fair elections. He also believes he is the best can-

Agricultural Adjustment Agency (AAA) in Washington D.C. Ware secured the job as he had extensive work experience with agricultural cultivation, spending most of the 1920’s earning a living in the Soviet Union as an expert on transforming Russia’s feudal farming plantations to state-owned “kolkhoz” collectives. While this process of farm collectivization would eventually lead to the Holodomor famine in Ukraine in the early 1930’s that killed roughly 612 million people by modern historical estimates, it was seen as a victory at the time by left-leaning press outlets that described the collectives as giving more rights to the common man.
Soon after accepting a position in Roosevelt’s administration, Ware began to foster a close relationship with Earl Browder, the leader of Communist Party USA. While he is certainly a forgotten political figure today, Browder was arguably the most powerful figure in American Communist circles of the 1930’s and 1940’s, having already been in regular contact with the Soviet Cheka since the 1920’s as an American informant. Browder also acted as a Cheka recruiter and saw a great opportunity in Ware as an inconspicuous bureaucrat who had the access to leak secret information about the American government to the Soviet Union. Motivated in part by Hitler’s recent rise to power in 1933, Ware quickly recruited other members in the Washington political establishment to his cause and by the mid

didate for Secretary of State because he has the knowledge needed to modernize registration of businesses in the State. Mark Meuser is a native Californian and a small business owner. From a young age, Mark was an entrepreneur, working himself into a management position at a local restaurant by age 15. By age 21, he purchased his own pizza restaurant. While his restaurant business was thriving, Meuser began studying law, and graduated with honors from the Oak Brook College of Law. To better help small businesses owners handle California’s complex regulatory environment, he opened The Meuser Law Group. Meuser operated a diverse civil litigation firm that represented both individuals and small businesses. His unique training has taught him how to listen to people, formulate creative alternatives, and achieve workable solutions to real problems.

1930’s Ware’s organization of roughly 100 members was feeding a steady stream of classified information to the Soviets. Their efforts were soon cut short however, as Ware himself was involved in a fatal car crash with a coal truck on an isolated Pennsylvania mountain road in 1935. The Ware Group’s success was mostly due to the simple fact that no one ever suspected a pack of seemingly boring Washington bureaucrats of being Soviet spies. There was no overt reason for Roosevelt or anyone else to suspect Ware and his colleagues of being traitors, so naturally no one did. Ware and his compatriots were American born and bred, clean cut, did not speak with foreign accents, wore simple suits and had apparently normal marriages. Ware Group members were perceived with a certain level of banality as they were not out in the streets attacking police, ransacking buildings, sporting hammer and sickle insignias or calling for the overthrow of the American government. Given that Roosevelt himself leaned heavily to the political left and that many Americans had begun to join workers’ rights groups in mass since the 1920’s, it was seen as somewhat normal in the wake of the Great Depression that many Washington bureaucrats might be connected in some way to either socialist-leaning or express communist organizations. After Ware’s untimely death, the spy ring was taken over by an American man named Whittaker Chambers who had been already proved his stripes after being recruited by Soviet spymaster Alexander Ulanovsky, a personal associate of Stalin’s as they were exiled together to Siberia during

the Russian Civil War. Chambers served as an effective leader of the Ware Group for the next 3 years, but became disillusioned with Communism in the late 1930’s after witnessing extensive evidence of Stalin’s mass murder of Soviet dissidents.
The subsequent disappearance in 1937 of a Nebraskan woman named Juliet Poyntz who was planning to release an expose on the Great Purge affirmed Chambers’ newfound conviction that Communism was a lost cause. Poyntz herself had been a Soviet spy acting against America since 1934 before travelling to Moscow for work in 1936, where she saw many of her Russian friends and work colleagues mysteriously disappear. She returned to New York City heartbroken and terrified as she had seen the real face of Soviet Communism in action and resolved to write a book exposing Stalinist genocide.
No one knows definitively what happened to Poyntz, although Chambers alleged in the early 1950’s that she was lured to a nighttime meeting in Central Park by a former lover of hers named Shachno Epstein who had also been a Cheka operative. Poyntz was then ambushed by two other Cheka operatives in a black limousine who grabbed her, threw her in the car and then drove out to the middle of the woods to complete the execution and burial. Epstein had worked as an editor for the Yiddish publication Morgen Freiheit (meaning Morning Freedom in German) which acted in conjunction with Communist Party USA as a propa-

ganda outlet to target Jewish families living in New York City. If Epstein had not betrayed Poyntz, he would have likely been killed himself by the Cheka for aiding and abetting a traitor, as Poyntz had in effect renounced her American citizenship when she swore allegiance to the Soviet Union. Chambers himself then defected from the Cheka in response to the Poyntz affair and began assisting the FBI in fingering the various individuals involved in Russian espionage against the U.S. that went as far back as the early 1920’s. From 1940 onwards, the Ware Group members still loyal to the cause thinned out in response to Chambers’ collaboration with American authorities and joined other tangential Soviet organizations actively operating across America. By the late 1940’s, the general grouping known as the Ware Group had completely collapsed due to the increased scrutiny of U.S. officials at the start of the Cold War. While McCarthy’s red scare paranoia that would proceed to engulf America in the 1950’s was certainly a vile miscarriage of justice that smeared the names of many innocent American citizens, many today have foolishly dismissed the central point of McCarthy’s argument that Soviet Intelligence operatives had indeed infiltrated the highest levels of the U.S. government over a 30 year period. And this is of course where the story bears relevance to today. While the Cheka in its various incarnations (NKVD, SMERSH, MVD, KGB,

The Paper • Page 4 • April 5, 2018 County Board of Supervisors and City of Escondido may join in Federal Lawsuit regarding Sanctuary City Laws
Escondido Mayor Sam Abed and Councilman John Masson are supporting the authorization of the city’s filing of a legal brief in support of the federal government’s lawsuit challenging three state laws enacted last year.
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors is expected to discuss the matter in closed session on April 17. Escondido appears to be the first city in San Diego County to tackle the issue.
Escondido would join the Orange County Board of Supervisors, which on Tuesday voted 4-0 to join the federal lawsuit as a “friend of the court.” Several other cities in Orange County are also beginning to take action against the state’s sanctuary laws. Senate Bill 54, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown last year, prohibits state and local police agencies from notifying federal officials in many cases when they have unauthorized immigrants in their custody who could be subject to deportation.
San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said he does not think the county should get involved in the adminis-
tration’s lawsuit against the state’s sanctuary policies.
“I’d tell them stay out of it...that would be my recommendation,” he said.
Deputies shouldn’t act as immigration officers because it might deter people who are in the country illegally from reporting crimes, making them vulnerable to victimhood, he said.
Though the city is more than 50 percent Latino, Escondido Councilwoman Olga Diaz, the lone Democrat and Latina on the council, often finds herself on the losing end of 4-1 votes. She said Wednesday she has not yet seen what the council will be asked to vote on next week, but said she will “be engaged” when the vote is taken. Both Abed and Masson, strong conservatives who have been outspoken about the federal government’s lack of a comprehensive immigration policy and are the two council members who have placed the item of the agenda, are running for re-election this November.
Last April, the Escondido council passed a resolution expressing opposition to SB 54, saying it did not “provide protection for local communities because it expressly prohibits local law enforcement, who are most likely to come into contact with violent offenders unlawfully in the

Medicine has come a long way since then (probably as recent as 40 years ago).
Man About Town
Mrs. Bumble Takes a Tumble:
It seems like Evelyn Madison always is a step ahead of me and accomplishes more than I do . . . try though I might.
Regular readers of this column will recall that “Mr. Bumble Takes a Tumble” back on New Year’s Eve Day and fractured my right shoulder. I have almost recovered; am probably at about 85-90%.
Ms. Madison decided to go me one better and she also took a tumble, while exiting her garage door. She went and broke her left hip! This all happened a week ago this Monday. Tuesday she had surgery at Kaiser Permanente on Zion Avenue in San Diego and on Thursday she came home!
I was gobsmacked to learn she could be discharged that quickly. Those of us who are in our late middle earlies can remember when a senior citizen broke a hip it was equivalent to having a death
I had the pleasure of meeting and visiting with a brilliant young orthopedic surgeon who practices at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in La Jolla. I related the story about Evelyn and he nodded and said, “actually, it has gotten so much improved that we often treat knee and hip replacements on an outpatient basis. They come in the morning, have the replacement surgery and they go home that afternoon.” Again, I was gobsmacked!
This young man (33 years old) grew up in Escondido, his family still lives in Valley Center. Dr. Morgan Silldorff is the Chief Resident Orthopedic Surgeon at the VA, La Jolla, will graduate in about two months and then heads to USC on a fellowship for a year’s additional training. He says he’ll come back to the VA in La Jolla as he really enjoys practicing here. I was very impressed with this young man and predict he will go far in his practice of orthopedic surgery.
As for Ms. Evelyn . . . well, she’s using a walker and a number of us are helping her out around the house. I am once again writing the Social Butterfly column and doing a lot of the paperwork that she normally does, running credit cards, making bank deposits etc. I think she’ll be able to proof this week’s edition of The Paper. She’s an outstanding proofreader and I don’t like proofing as I always seem to miss a few typos. She doesn’t. She’s one sharp cookie.
United States, from communicating effectively with federal authorities who are the only agencies who have the authority to remove these individuals from the country.” Vista Motorcycle Crash Leaves One Dead, Four Injured
A man was gravely injured and later died and four other people were hurt in a crash involving three motorcycles and a sedan in Vista Saturday evening. The collisions occurred along East Vista Way north of Foothill Drive about 6:40 p.m., sheriff ’s Lt. Matthew Glisson said.
A Vista fire official told NBC 7 that three men and two women who were on the three Harley Davidson motorcycles were injured.
Two men suffered critical injuries. One of the men was taken to a trauma center and succumbed to his wounds, said sheriff ’s Deputy Nicholas Jehl. The other was flown to a hospital. His condition was not released. The other three victims were also taken to hospitals.
Glisson said the riders belonged to a motorcycle club and other members showed up after the crashes. The 24year-old driver of the Toyota Camry involved in the crash was not hurt. I’m delighted to report that several of my dearest friends have overcome some pretty serious health issues and are back among us, regaining strength and ready to push far forward into the future.
One of the world’s greatest dentists, Dr. Greg Hurt, has had a couple surgeries for a heart condition and we are delighted to learn the surgery was a success. He’ll probably return to practice in about a week. (He tends to be a workaholic. I’ve tried to persuade him to slow down but he loves dentistry and his patients so much that he is hard to slow down. He has promised me, this time, that he will begin to take it easy.) Have been to Charlie’s Restaurant several times since his recent successful surgery. Each day he seems to spend a bit more time there; he just doesn’t like to sit at home and watch tv. He loves to visit with his patrons and his staff. The good news is that he continues to gain strength and soon will be 100% Speaking of restaurants, I had a wonderful experience last Friday. We had returned from a trip to the VA Medical Center in La Jolla and decided to stop for a Chinese dinner at the Bamboo House, 320 N. Midway Drive, Escondido. They had a filet mignon special for $14 and I jumped at that. My ex-wife, Mary, had Cashew Chicken. We each had a glass of Chardonnay and was enjoying our meal and our conversation when the waitress approached us and said, “the gentleman in the next booth paid for your dinner.” My jaw dropped. “Really,” I said. “I’d like to thank him.” “Oh, he already left,” said the waitress.

I’d love to return the favor and break bread with you. This time it’s my treat.

I’m giving a standing ovation to Escondido Mayor Sam Abed for his strong opposition to the state of California trying to force Escondido to be a sanctuary city.
I’ve been an occasional critic of Mayor Sam but on this issue he’s absolutely correct.
No way should any city in California be forced to become a sanctuary city. We are a nation of laws and we must enforce those laws and not allow outside influence to cause us to look the other way or to ignore the law.
I am in favor of investing the necessary funds to join the federal government in opposing Governor Jerry Brown’s loopy proposal to require all cities to become sanctuary cities. It just doesn’t make sense. If folks are here illegally then they should be held to account for having broken the law. Sometimes I think common sense and logic have escaped the Liberal community and its adherents.

FSB, etc.) has without a doubt been the most effective and ruthless spy organization in all of history, they have one weakness. They’re conservative in a certain respect. Russian intelligence operatives have always required a certain amount of staged physical meetings with persons deemed as assets. Cheka operations have never relied solely on secret communication via technological means. There are always physical meetings to establish the terms of any Chekist espionage mission. That is the key to defeating Russian intelligence operations. If the present American presidential administration has in fact been in collusion with the Kremlin over the past couple of years, then there will certainly be further emerging evidence of physical meetings between Trump officials and Russian Intelligence operatives. We have seen some major evidence of this already with the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian group led by veteran Chekists Natalia Veselnitskaya and Rinat Akhmetshin. In addition to this, a documented January 2017 meeting which involved longtime Trump associate and Blackwater founder Erik Prince conferring with Russian banker Kirill Dmitriev to establish an illegal back channel for communication between the Trump campaign and Putin took place in the Seychelles Islands, which lies in the Indian Ocean about 1100 miles off the coast of Kenya.
The confirmed meeting in the Seychelles between Prince and Dmitriev in particular has begged the question as to the extent of how far Special Counsel Robert Mueller will have to go to unravel the threads of the Russia Investigation. If Trump campaign officials and tangential associates were in fact colluding with Russian Cheka operatives in some form within the last two years, then the meeting in the Seychelles has provided implicative evidence that much of these dealings took place outside of the jurisdiction of the United States. This presents a variety of roadblocks for Mueller’s team, as any financial payments between the Kremlin and Trump campaign officials may have been brokered through a mainstream German corporation like Deutsche Bank or through subtler means, like the Russian owned banks with close ties to the Kremlin that have operated in Cypress for the last twenty to thirty years since the collapse of the Soviet Union. This of course will prove to be one of the greatest challenges for Mueller’s team to overcome, as nations like Cypress and Russia are under no direct legal obligation to provide financial information related to assisting the Special Counsel’s investigatory efforts. While the Watergate Investigation certainly caused a massive political upheaval in early 1970’s Washington, the ramifications of the scandal related solely to acts committed by the Nixon administration within the physical boundaries of the United States. Watergate investigators had it easy in the sense that they never had to travel to foreign
countries or audit international bank records to discover corruption within the highest levels of the Nixon administration.
One recent example of the legal complexity of this issue relates to Wilbur Ross, who acts presently as the United States Secretary of Commerce and has himself come under scrutiny for his own financial connections to Vladimir Putin via 80 different Russian business entities he has invested in that maintain close ties with the Kremlin. In November 2017, the Munich newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung, released a stolen set of 13.4 million confidential electronic documents known colloquially as “the Paradise Papers”; which concern offshore banking investments by various nations, banking institutions and wealthy entrepreneurs. From the Papers, it was discovered that Ross had failed to fully disclose his involvement with said Kremlin business associates in his Senate confirmation hearings in early 2017. It is also important to note in the discussion surrounding the Russia Investigation that there is technically no legal charge in the U.S. Criminal Code known as “collusion”. Collusion is simply an umbrella term used widely in the American media to refer to a number of specific criminal charges ranging anywhere from Conspiracy Against the United States, Conspiracy To Launder Money, Failure to File Reports of Foreign Bank And Financial Accounts, Issuing False and Misleading Statements, etc. To that effect, the New York Times released a detailed report in October 2017 of the
twelve official counts consisting of a mixture of the above charges, which former Trump campaign officials Paul Manafort and Rick Gates have been charged with collectively by the Special Counsel’s prosecutorial team. While we may never see an end to Russian espionage operations in the United States, it is important for us as Americans to realize that the Cheka is not invincible and that their one weakness is one of simplicity. Their failure to eliminate physical meetings throughout the years between Kremlin operatives and their human assets has exposed possibly not only the greatest Presidential scandal in U.S. history, but also the specific espionage methods Russian agents will continue to use to infiltrate the American government throughout the rest of the 21st century.

by lyle e davis
They say that one of the ways you know you’re getting old is when you talk about what you “used to do, back in the good old days.” With that in mind I unlocked my memory vault and looked back 51 years, to 1967.
I was a young civilian war correspondent on assignment in S. Vietnam to cover the unpleasantness going on in that country. I represented WEEF Radio, Highland Park, Illinois, WIL, St. Louis, The Hollister Press and the North Shore Group newspapers. After a long, long, long, and tiring flight on PanAm we landed at Ton Son Nhut Air Base just outside of Saigon. Our approach was an interesting one. Instead of a long glide path, as is normal, we approached the runway at about a 45 degree angle. A quicker descent, much more difficult for NVA and/or Viet Cong guerillas to take a shot at our aircraft. This, I learned, was standard procedure at all landing zones. No air base was totally secure.
The Viet Cong often would infiltrate the air base(s) - usually as casual day laborers. They could then plant explosives from time to time and/or do other sabotage. Meanwhile, their colleagues were in the bush, just outside the perimeter of the airbase and if an aircraft made the mistake of trying a long, smooth glide path, the guerillas would have a chance to fire an RPG (Rocket Propelled Grenade) at the aircraft. As we rode in a jeep toward the city of Saigon we were aware of the hot, muggy climate ... and the different culture. I noticed, for example, one elderly woman who, heeding the call of nature, walked on a median in the road, then stopped, dropped her drawers, and defecated. Welcome to Southeast Asia.
It was not uncommon for pedestrians to be fatally injured by cars then lie in the street, sometimes for days, while people just went about their business not knowing or caring about the dead body.
I actually preferred getting out into the hamlets and smaller cities of Vietnam. That’s where most of the stories were anyway.
I remember a village, Pleiku, in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. We were in a Montagnard Village called Plei-Monu. The S. Vietnamese brass were showing off to the press the donation of a rice mill they had made to the village. We sat in front of the rice mills and were fed a feast of monkey meat and rice wine (very potent stuff). And, yes, monkey meat tastes a lot like . . . you guessed it, chicken.
Being new to Saigon some of the other correspondents warned me “whatever you do, stay the hell out of Cholon (the Chinese section of Saigon) - it’s loaded with VC and is very dangerous.” Sure enough, that very evening MACV (Military Assistance Command, Vietnam) had arranged for me to ride with an MP (Military Police) patrol into ... Cholon. As luck would have it, we encountered no VC that night nor any particular danger.
Saigon, though dusty, dirty, hot and humid, had several saving graces. You could buy tailored uniforms and other clothes there - I still have my correspondent’s uniform - very spiffy, dark blue. Took less than one afternoon to tailor. (I’ve noticed it no longer fits me. No doubt it has shrunk. At least that’s what I prefer to think).
Another great thing about Saigon was its restaurants. The French were in IndoChina for decades and their language, culture and their food remained. Top drawer French restaurants and exciting menus were easily found and explored. It was not unusual to be dining on steak on the rooftop restaurant of the Majestic Hotel while our military and the Viet Cong were bat-

So happy to hear our Associate Publisher and columnist for "The Social Butterfly" is coming home from Kaiser Hospital in San Diego today (Thursday, 3/29/18) after her hip fracture where she had the ball replaced in her hip.
Also, thank you so very much for forwarding the email from Jean Landmesser (Admirer of The Paper) who sent copies of my Pearl Harbor story to her 94-year-old uncle, Stu Hedley, a Pearl Harbor survivor, including his phone number, etc. I never fully realized how my story "I Wept At Pearl Harbor" (published in The Paper, 12/3/17) would resonate so deeply with so many of our readers (many of whom still stop me on the street to express their emotions, etc.).

Where was your car manufactured?
In this day and age we are all part of the nation of the world. My wife’s car is a Buick Encore. We thought we had bought an American car. When we got it home we found the content sticker stated it was 95% Korean, 3%Chinese and 2% Canadian and US. The manufacturing plant was in Seoul, South Korea. The only thing American is the name plate and insignia.
Buick just released information that starting with the 2019 model lineup they will no longer put the Buick name on the majority of their cars. Only their attractive trishield red, white, and blue shield will remain. They state that is enough identification. Everyone knows their ame.

My car is another case of hidden identity. It has all Mercedes running gear, motor, transmission, accessories, plus a body made by Karman Ghia. It has an American name and was sold by a domestic automobile company during the period of 2005-2008. Take a look at the picture and place your guess. Hint Mercedes Benz owned this company at the time.
Safeguarding our schools
School safety has to be our first priority. That's why I introduced Assembly Bill 1983 requiring local school districts to collaborate with local law enforcement to create mandatory threat assessment protocols and facility reassessments so that all schools will have documented protections, advanced technologies and strategies in place should a threat arise. Unfortunately, a large majority of schools remain unprepared to deal with external or internal threats. While both law enforcement and school personnel are highly trained professionals who always prioritize student welfare and school safety, they are not required to work together to create and implement security protocols and threat assessments geared to each school’s unique circumstances and campus layouts. This lack of collaboration between schools and law enforcement may lead to confusion and chaos during a crisis. Facility assessments would include campus fencing, walls, parking lots, lighting, security cameras, building layouts, visibility or blind spots, weapons
detection, 'smart' student identification, communication protocols between school/public/law enforcement, and the potential effectiveness of all emergency plans. These assessments should lead schools to take advantage of reasonably priced new technologies aimed at securing school perimeters and allowing safe ingress/egress on all campuses.
As we all know, threats can come in many forms and can occur anywhere at any time. Each type of threat needs to be assessed with the help of local law enforcement, providing school administrators with the information they will need to respond effectively during a crisis. By passing AB 1983 and by requiring these practical, concrete steps, security at all California schools will be strengthened, and most importantly, the safety of our children will be ensured.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
At the depths of the Panic of 1893, the Federal Treasury was nearly out of gold in 1895. Morgan had put forward a plan for the federal government to buy gold from his and European banks. He came up with a plan to use an old civil war statute that allowed Morgan and the Rothschilds to sell gold directly to the U.S. Treasury, 3.5 million ounces, to restore the treasury surplus, in exchange for a 30-year bond issue.
I was here as a civilian correspondent. When I was active duty military I was Entertainment Director for Brooke Army Hospital at Fort Sam Houston, Texas (San Antonio); but I was enlisted. In Vietnam MACV gave me the assimilated grade/rank of Lt. Colonel.
It’s much better to be a Lt. Colonel than an enlisted man. You can fly on almost any aircraft in which you have an interest; you can call the motor pool and arrange transport, you can eat in the Officer’s Mess (which I did several times but actually preferred to dine in the Enlisted Mess with the grunts. Many more interesting stories and people there). I also had priority travel privileges. I could “bump” someone else and fly in their place. Never exercised that privilege. I could take my time; they were in combat and needed to get somewhere ... whether on another assignment or R&R (Rest and Recreation). I wasn’t gonna deny them that. I could, and did, wait.
J.P. Morgan: The Nation’s Banker & Entrepreneur
Our fourth mogul of the six who were key to building America was John Pierpont Morgan, New York entrepreneur and financier, who the federa’ government’s financial system, as well as created U.S. Steel and General Electric through his many acquisitions and consolidations.
John Pierpont Morgan Sr., born April 17, 1837, was an American financier and banker who dominated corporate finance and industrial consolidation in the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Many, many interesting sights, sounds, and smells during the years 1967 and 1968 when I was reporting from this mighty hot combat zone. And, yes, we did see combat. On one occasion, at night, we were in the press tent at An Khe, typing up our stories and/or editing our tapes. Suddenly, sirens sounded and the entire military base went dark. Mortar attack!
The NVA (North Vietnamese Army) were outside the base, lobbing in mortars. They were after the helicopters.
We all ran for a nearby bunker. I, young and foolhardy, got halfway there and then turned and ran back to the press tent. I had forgotten my tape recorder! I then ran toward the bunker while watching the mortar rounds being walked in toward the bunker. I reached it safely, dived in and slammed my head against the knee of a frightened soldier.
I still have a tape recording of the mortar rounds exploding as I say, breathlessly, “this is lyle davis; we are in An Khe, S. Vietnam (and then, almost as on cue - an explosion) we are undergoing a mortar attack!” They didn’t get the helicopter but we had several casualties. One trooper lost his leg. Another time, perhaps, I’ll share some more stories. It was one helluva time.
tation as a banker and financier also helped bring interest from investors to the businesses that he took over.
Morgan played an important role in the formation of General Electric, U.S. Steel, International Harvester and AT&T. During the early part of the 20th century at the height of Morgan's career, he and his partners had financial investments in many large corporations and had significant influence over the nation's high finance and United States Congress members. He directed the banking coalition that stopped the national Panic of 1907; he was the leading financier of the so-called Progressive Era, and his dedication to efficiency and modernization helped transform modern-day American business. Yet, he was dubbed a “robber baron.” Morgan learned at an early age how to make money. At 26, during the American Civil War, in an incident known as the “Hall Carbine Affair,” Morgan financed the purchase of 5,000 rifles from a U.S. Army arsenal at $3.50 each, which he then resold to a field general for $22 each.
Morgan’s process of taking over troubled businesses to reorganize them became known as "Morganization." He reorganized business structures and management in order to return them to profitability. Morgan’s repu-
The episode saved the U.S. Treasury but hurt President Cleveland's standing with the agrarian wing of the Democratic Party, and became an issue in the election of 1896 when banks came under a withering attack from Democrat candidate William Jennings Bryan. To maintain the status quo in business, Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, and John D. Rockefeller, along with some Wall Street bankers donated heavily to Republican William McKinley, who was elected in 1896 and re-elected in 1900.
By 1900, Morgan’s firm was one of the most powerful banking houses on the world, focused especially on reorganizations and consolidations. After financing the creation of the Federal Steel Company, Morgan merged it in 1901 with the Carnegie Steel Company and several other steel and iron businesses to form the United States Steel Corporation. The Panic of 1907 was a financial crisis that almost crippled the American economy. Major New York banks were on the verge of bankruptcy and there was no mechanism to rescue them, until Morgan stepped in to help resolve the crisis. Treasury Secretary George B. Cortelyou earmarked $35 million of federal money to deposit in New York banks. Morgan then met with the nation's leading financiers in his New York mansion, where he forced them to devise a plan to meet the crisis. Morgan organized a team of bank and trust executives which redirected money between banks, secured further international lines of credit, and bought up the plummeting stocks of healthy corporations. Vowing to never let it happen again, and realizing that in a future crisis there was unlikely to be another Morgan, in 1913 banking and political leaders, led by U.S. Sen. Nelson Aldrich, devised a plan that resulted in the creation of today’s Federal Reserve System.
Morgan died in Rome, Italy, in his sleep in 1913 at the age of 75, leaving his fortune and business to his son, John Pierpont Morgan ,Jr. His estimated fortune at "only" $80 million, prompting John D. Rockefeller to say: "and to think, he wasn't even a rich man." NEXT WEEK: Henry Ford, our fifth mogul

On April 12, the San Diego Workforce Partnership, an organization that empowers job seekers to meet the current and future workforce needs of employers, will host its second Opportunity Summit at the Town and Country Resort Hotel. The goal of this year summit is to better understand why more than 41,000 young people in San Diego County are not in school or working. The summit will identify solutions to prevent youth from disconnecting and support disconnected youth entering back into school, training or work. According to new data released March 19 by Measure of America, nearly one in ten young adults in San Diego County are disconnected, putting them at a higher risk for long-term unemployment and poverty. Youth disconnection leads to a significant loss in economic productivity and a high dependence on government and social service programs. Focused on the theme this years summit will feature:
- System leaders alongside youth impacted by their systems - District 4 county supervisor candidate forum to reveal their plans for better serving youth - National perspective from Maureen Conway, Vice President at the Aspen Institute, one of the nation foremost leaders in opportunity youth research and strategy
The summit plans a deep dive into issues that contribute to the youth disconnection problem in San Diego County. Breakout sessions will include: - Ending the Silence on Youth Mental Health: a discussion on the intersection between mental health struggles and youth disconnection - New Laws, Cleaner Records and Criminal Justice Reform: a look at new laws impacting justice involved youth

Working is my hobby. I like to be involved in all sorts of projects. Between full-time work at Palomar College and round-theclock work as an Escondido City Councilwoman, I rarely have down time. Somewhere in the midst of managing work and family, I made the time (finally) to get my Master’s degree.
I found a great Master’s of Public Administration (MPA)
To win one of these baskets, simply place your purchased ticket(s) in the container next to the basket you want to win. The Master of Ceremonies will be Jon Ayala.

The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Richard Huls (Retired) Versions of the Bible
Recently, I read a religious article, which had a number of references to persons and events, which did not include chapter and verse, all presumed to have been taken from the Bible. When I checked to see about the accuracy of the quotes, I found they did not conform with the Biblical text, at least with the Bible I use. I wondered what Biblical version the author used, which seemed so different from mine. So my friend and editor of The Paper, Lyle Davis, and I discussed the matter and he suggested I write this article on the different versions of the Bible. After some research, I discovered there have been over 300 English versions, since the King James Bible of 1611, many in use today.
Social Butterfly Cont. on Page 12
The KJV has been the standard in the more conservative churches, albeit with a number of upgrades. The reason for so many different versions is because of new discoveries of Biblical texts, comparative studies in the Biblical original languages of Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, and Latin, which have helped clarify the meaning of Biblical passages. There has also been a wealth of information in recent studies of the social, religious, cultural, and political conditions during the formation and writing of the Biblical texts, shedding light on the meaning of Biblical stories and passages. So what version is the right one? It depends on one’s need. There are modern easy to read versions, which could compromise the literal meaning of some passages, yet give the fundamental truth. Perhaps the best way is to find a version (translation from the original languages) that is easy to read and understand. It is always helpful to be in a Bible study group to get the most benefit from any version. The most important thing, however, is to take time to read the Bible. We, of Dial-a-Prayer Ministries, will be happy to share in helping anyone find the right version. Call 760 746 6611.

San Marcos wins state award for economic development efforts
On Friday, March 16 the California Association for Local Economic Development (CALED) honored the City of San Marcos with an Award of Merit for its public outreach efforts surrounding economic development.
Our businesses are a critical piece of the local economy, supplying more than 40,000 jobs here in San Marcos.
The award recognizes the City’s efforts to inform the public about its economic development program over the past year, which included a promotional video, series of
news stories, informative brochure, community profile, interactive online demographic dashboard and social media campaign. Our business inventory has grown by 25 percent in the past decade alone, and we expect that growth to continue. That’s partly why we’re committed to proactive economic development and this award speaks to that. When we empower our businesses to succeed, the entire community benefits.

"The one we used to put out the fire, Senor."
"Good Lord! What fire are you talking about, man?"
"The one at your house, Senor Kent! A candle fell and the curtains caught on fire." "What the hell? Are you saying that my mansion is destroyed because of a candle?!" "Yes, Senor Kent."
"But there's electricity at the house! What was the candle for?" "For the funeral, Senor Kent."
"WHAT BLOODY FUNERAL?!"

There is a species of antelope that can jump higher than the average house.
This is largely due to the tremendous muscle power in all four of its legs; also, because the average house can't jump very high. "Do Not Touch" must be one of the scariest messages to read in Braille.
There are more airplanes in the ocean than submarines in the sky. “YES WE CAN! YES WE CAN! YES WE CAN!” – Factory workers at a cannery. Those fabulous Jewish Comedians
You may remember the old Jewish Catskill comics of Vaudeville days: There was not one single swear word in their comedy. Here are a few examples:
* I just got back from a pleasure trip. I took my mother-in-law to the airport. * I've been in love with the same woman for 49 years! If my wife ever finds out, she'll kill me! * What are three words a woman never wants to hear when she's making love? "Honey, I'm home!"
* Someone stole all my credit cards but I won't be reporting it. The thief spends less than my wife did. * We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops.
* My wife and I went back to the hotel where we spent our wedding night; only this time I stayed in the bathroom and cried. * My wife and I went to a hotel where we got a waterbed. My wife called it the Dead Sea. * She was at the beauty shop for two hours. That was only for the estimate. She got a mudpack and looked great for two days. Then the mud fell off.
* The Doctor gave a man six months to live. The man couldn't pay his bill so the doctor gave him another six months. * The Doctor called Mrs. Cohen saying, "Mrs. Cohen, your check came
Investing in the Community
As our local e c o n o m y continues to improve, the City is better able to invest in our community’s needs and priorities, provide vital infrastructure improvements, fund more park upgrades, and pay for fire protection and law enforcement services – all of which are fundamental to Vista’s quality of life. Vista’s unemployment rate is at 2.9 percent which is an historic low. This is a positive indicator of our successful economy. With our continued support of the 900 industries in the Vista Business Park and our Innovate 78 partnership, we
will continue to keep, train and attract creative talent to our city and to our region. This talent works in tech startups, life sciences, communications and other exciting industries. New jobs are being created for Vista and North County residents and more opportunities are on the horizon. Our top priority is to increase our economic vitality and help create a sustainable community.
The new Vista Honda Dealership is one example and construction on the building is underway. I look forward to the dealership opening in about 18 months and the new jobs it will create for the community.

Oceanside Easter Egg Hunt
The annual City of Oceanside Easter Egg Hunt was held at Mance Buchanon Park, located at 425 College Blvd, on Saturday, March 31 at 10 a.m.
This great event was free for children ages 3-11. There was candy, prizes, and a special guest appearance by the Easter Bunny.

* Doctor: "You'll live to be 60!" Patient: "I am 60!" Doctor: "See! What did I tell you?"
* Patient: "I have a ringing in my ears." Doctor: "Don't answer!" * A drunk was in front of a judge. The judge says, "You've been brought here for drinking." The drunk says "Okay, let's get started." * Why do Jewish divorces cost so much? They're worth it.
The Harvard School of Medicine did a study of why Jewish women like Chinese food so much. The study revealed that this is due to the fact that Won Ton spelled backward is Not Now.
There is a big controversy on the Jewish view of when life begins. In Jewish tradition, the fetus is not considered viable until it graduates from medical school. Q: Why don't Jewish mothers drink? A: Alcohol interferes with their suffering.
Q: Why do Jewish mothers make great parole officers?
After the egg hunt, children enjoyed a free magic show presented by the Friends of Oceanside Parks and Recreation. Families were encouraged to come early and children brought their own baskets or bags. Parking was limited. For more information, please contact Parks and Recreation at 760-4355041 or visit www.oceansiderec.com.
A: They never let anyone finish a sentence!
A man called his mother in Florida, "Mom, how are you?" "Not too good," said the mother. "I've been very weak." The son said, "Why are you so weak?" She said, "Because I haven't eaten in 38 days." The son said, "That's terrible. Why haven't you eaten in 38 days?"
The mother answered, "Because I didn't want my mouth to be filled with food if you should call."
A Jewish boy comes home from school and tells his mother he has a part in the play. She asks, "What part is it?" The boy says, "I play the part of the Jewish husband." "The mother scowls and says, "Go back and tell the teacher you want a speaking part!” Short summary of every Jewish holiday: They tried to kill us. We won. Let's eat.
Did you hear about the bum who walked up to a Jewish mother on the street and said, "Lady, I haven't eaten in three days." "Force yourself," she replied. Q: What's the difference between a Rottweiler and a Jewish mother? A: Eventually, the Rottweiler will let go.

Our columns are purposed to provide interesting and meaningful information to the general public and not for peer review in scientific journals. It is easier to produce these arcane “papers” for esoteric audiences than it is to write meaningful subject matter for common folks about complex subjects, but that’s our job so we will give it a shot.
tion, machine logic might well consider humans to be an irritating, irrational and unnecessary nuisance, (just listen to Nancy Pelosi) and decide to move on without us. Another scenario has computers controlling our defense systems and triggering nuclear Armageddon. While these things are possible or perhaps even likely there will be more immediate impacts on our day to day lives.
Today’s technology collects and stores vast amounts of personal digital data on Government, private, Internet, cellular servers, closed circuit video systems and other surveillance systems. The art of massaging and collating all this data to create meaningful inferences is the job of artificial intelligence. It is happening all around us but it is still only in its infancy.
When you query “Hey Google,” Alexa or SIRI you must be careful to phrase your question correctly or they won’t understand. Day by day these personal assistants are “learning” and getting better at understanding what you are asking for when you use plain English. There is an “app” for your smart phone that permits a face to face conversation between two people who don’t understand or speak one another’s language. Simply turn up the sound and place it on the table between you and start a conversation. It will translate up to forty languages in real time. Next week we’ll continue exploring the ways AI will affect our lives, both in ways that help and ways that scare us.
AI is definitely “the next big thing” and it’s just getting started. Over the next generation AI will change our lives in unimaginable ways. Some will be universally accepted as progress, some will not. We looked at dozens of “AI” definitions and none of them really fit so we came up with our own. “The science of creating nonhuman systems that derive inferences from input data.” Granted it really doesn’t tell you crap about AI but at least it doesn’t violate any AI concepts. The biggest concern of those who fear doom and gloom from AI are those who are afraid that we will trust artificial intelligence to replace human intelligence in high level decision making with disastrous results.
