  4. A reminder, this is the second such government recognition for community activism that Rizza Islam has received while his criminal charges are pending. On 12/7/19, he received a Certificate of Recognition from the City of Los Angeles as a "Community Activist" and "Voice of the District" for his "commitment and dedication to the South Los Angeles Community." This certificate was signed by Curren D. Price, Jr., the Los Angeles City Councilman for the then new 9th District.




    As a result, Rizza Islam will be able to produce at least two significant positive pieces of evidence at the sentencing hearing if he is convicted after trial or pursuant to a plea bargain. He will also be able to convey the not so subtle message of political or establishment support.

    Rizza Islam is the same person to whom Congresswoman Karen Bass recently awarded a "Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition."



    Rizza Islam is also the same person to whom Los Angeles City Councilman Curren D. Price, Jr. awarded a "Certificate of Recognition" on 12/7/19.


  6. Tony Ortega has an update:

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    We sent a detailed email to [Karen Bass's] communications director, asking why she gave Rizza Islam this certificate, and he sent us this statement:

    "An organization serving girls in the foster care system in South Los Angeles held its annual concert in 2019 and requested certificates for individuals that they were honoring. Rep. Karen Bass is a founder and co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Foster Youth and has fought to protect the vulnerable and abused throughout her career. Our office provided the certificates when they were requested, using standard language on pre-printed Congressional certificates. These certificates did not in any way constitute endorsement of individual honorees. The Office of Rep. Karen Bass was at no time aware of the felony charges against Ronnie Islam. Rep. Bass, who has seen The Aftermath series, in no way supports his poisonous anti-Semitic and pro-Scientology beliefs."

    It is very sloppy for a Congresswoman to have her office set up such that blank Certificates of Special Congressional Recognition -- signed by the Congresswoman herself -- are given in bulk to organizations to be issued to previously unidentified individuals who haven't been properly vetted

    It is probably a good thing that Congresswoman is not a heartbeat away from becoming President of the United States.

  7. Mike Rinder responds to the Karen Bass story on Tony Ortega's blog:

    Concerning Rep. Karen Bass.

    She is not the first elected official to have fallen prey to scientology's tricks in seeking endorsements. Unfortunately, she will probably not be the last, though the odds against scientology being able to pull these sort of stunts grow longer by the day. Scientology does this all the time and over the years have snared many an unsuspecting elected official (Stefani Hutchison's excellent Confront and Shatter blog documents plenty of this bs). But I think Karen Bass is the first to respond with such a clear, declarative statement that she has gotten herself informed, watched The Aftermath and "in no way supports his poisonous anti-Semitic and pro-Scientology beliefs." That is a strong statement.

    I feel certain nobody and nothing scientology related is going to be supported or endorsed by Karen Bass or anyone in her office from here on out. It would seem scientology has created another elected official who feels they have been burned and that's a big minus in the "safepointed" column. She went from an unwitting supporter to watching The Aftermath thanks to their efforts.

    Eventually scientology's deception and lies will recoil. I know it is always painfully slow to happen -- but it is inevitable. You cannot continue to lie and deceive without ultimately paying the price.
