(4/29) FEDERAL RACKETEERING LAWSUIT AGAINST FREEDOM WEST

Freedom West had been served with a class-action lawsuit, accusing the co-op engaging in federal racketeering.  Although it was said that the case was "thrown" out.  I don't know what it meant because the case dealt with many different issues.  If by that kind of "thrown out" has the same meaning as what Bilal said about case about him and his Gang usurping power in the last election, I would not be too sanguine about it because the plaintiff lawyer is just redrafting the original complaint.  That Bilal's claim that we won in that federal racketeering case was just that he's kidding himself.  I do know the court exonerated one of the former board members.  But as for other issues, I don't believe they got resolved.

Freedom West is in the grip of increasing lawlessness committed by the usurper board and its officers born out through corruption.  If Bilal and Gang was making fun of previous management, he shouldn't brag on this pedestal too much because the difference in behavior between him and those previous corrupt management differed but little.  The previous boards knew the difference between right and wrong because at the very least they attended classes in cooperative conferences and learned about proper practices, just that they don't practice them.  The Bilal Gang didn't never attended classes and considered Freedom West one big play pen for these board toddlers with no adult supervisions.

If you see a draft of their board member code of standard which never was really discussed nor implemented, you would see how juvenile the proposal was.  If they had gone to classes and understood the principles and spirit behind a cooperative they would never draft anything like that.  It does not excuse Bilal that the drafted was before his time but drafted by another board member because he practiced just like that, secretive, arbitrary, and non-transparent.  The old board knew they did wrong but the Bilal Gang thought they did the correct thing.  That why Gideon Tesfaye, the purported Vice President now, sounded so ridiculous when shareholders response to their sinister income verification got so tepid a response that he threatened to put the requirement into the occupancy agreement.  That's the danger of someone who didn't bother to learn but pounding their chests that they are right.  That's why one former board presidents said talking to them is like talking to mules.  That's why I tend to keep myself mum during board meetings and spoke in few sentences because I knew they'll just disregard other ideas or don't get it because they don't bother to be educated themselves.

Being active in Freedom West for so long, I am seeing the Mohammed Bilal Gang is running the place much resemble a racket.  It runs however it wants whatever it wants with no accountability to residents and shareholders because they consider they are laws unto themselves.  It was especially galling in one board meeting last year when shareholders confronted Bilal with his lies about the renovate/redevelop Bilal and Gang claimed they could do as they please because you voted for them during the election, the only legitimate election we had.

That election was 3 years ago, and the reason they won was not because people trusted them but they trusted David Tse for recommending them and collected votes for them.  Immediate after they took advantage of my help they went around and disregard the Dreamcatcher platform which got them elected and went about their own perfidious ways.  Now those folks weren't even got elected in but still warming the seats out front because they couldn't bear to see themselves not seating up there to mumble nothing words to us.

On one hand the federal racketeering lawsuit was a surprise to me because I never expect it would happen and it shouldn't have happened if Bilal had done the right thing.  The lawsuit appeared to be an off-shoot of a lawsuit I involved in together with two other shareholders that dealt with former Freedom West management misdeeds.  In my estimation that lawsuit was over and all the parties involved, i.e. Mohammed Soriano-Bilal, plaintiffs and defendants, insurance companies, the army of lawyers, signed a sealed document and everything to be kept confidential.  That’s supposed to be the end of it.  But little do we know.

On the other hand it shouldn’t be a surprise because earlier in the Freedom West struggle I contacted the FBI and HUD’s regional office to look into Freedom West’s operation.  The case further spread to San Francisco City Attorney’s office and HUD internal investigative unit, which is independent and distinct from the regional office.  It went to Washington, D.C. and back.  The whole thing became a cloak-and-dagger affair that’s worthy of a thriller novel.  But that was five years ago.  Then, as it is now about Mohammed Soriano-Bilal, Alton Management tried to evict me from Freedom West because I was going to find out and expose their corruptions and misdeeds, just as now I'm trying to expose Bilal's.  On the surface Freedom West seems to be different, but not too deep below things stay the same, if not worse today.

How this lawsuit now?  Since I knew nothing about its provenance I could only surmise.  But as so often the case, my educated guess won't deviate much from reality.  It came about because Mohammed Soriano-Bilal violated the document he signed as Freedom West Board President in September 2014.  As signer of the covenant "with prejudice" he should not divulge anything with regard to that earlier lawsuit, as he emphasized it so often during board meetings when shareholders or their proxies asked about specific facts of the case.

Unfortunate for the co-op he blew the thing wide open in his rush to exact revenge against me after his team lost the board election last July.  In his pre-arranged attempt to destroy the election results and to smear my character Bilal brought out all those false charges the corrupt management back then fabricated against me, presented them as veritable facts to rest of Freedom West community, so that he and his losing cabal could still sit in front of you in those so-called “board meetings” he ask you to attend now.  The hooliganism he so thoroughly exhibited during those subsequent shameful events was what got our community into an unenviable position now.

What he didn’t quite realize was that by parceling his little dirty tricks he opened up a big hole.  The plaintiff lawyer, once he saw Mohammed Bilal’s violation, saw the “with prejudiced” provision in the covenant no longer operative and garnered all the facts he so painstakingly investigated on Freedom West’s corrupt past and laid it all out.  The previously injured parties who couldn't get into our co-op then got together to initiate a class action lawsuit against Freedom West as represented by the Bilal "Board".  Acting like a Mafia Gangsta Boss with a vengeful persona Mohammed Bilal provided the opening to get our community into federal racketeering charges.  It shouldn't have happened if he could contain his reckless and irresponsible impulse to satiate his virulent desires to evict me from Freedom West.

The crucial question now is whether this cabal "board" led by Bilal can legally represent Freedom West for such important matter.  One thing I could assure you of this, this lawsuit would not have happened if Bilal had not succumb to his viperous instinct to get rid of his perceived political enemy, i.e. yours truly.  Furthermore, we would have at this time a legitimate board and really getting on the business of communicate and organize the community to articulate what we want and not having the dark cloud of three lawsuits hanging over us.

Woe to those who have to sign any important contracts with Freedom West now.  Woe to us because it'll be hard-pressed for us to convince the insurance companies to pay up, or to insure the individual board members themselves, for the misdeeds since the "board" is an illegitimate racket.  These insurance companies will gladly take up their monthly premium but when the time for them to pay up, that's another matter.  This is the mess Soriano-Bilal got us into in his 2+ years on Freedom West's driver seat.

The people in control of Freedom West now and those befriended  them is a lawless cabal looking out for themselves, promoting and protecting each other’s interests with scant regard on the consequence to the rest of the community.  The perfidious part of it is that they don’t even think they are corrupt.  They think about entitlements and felt no self-restraints on how they exercise their thievery using power and purse strings.  This is the sad part of Freedom West’s story.  What we must do as a community is to expose these fakes for who they are and hold them accountable for what they’d done.
 
Are we guilty as well?  Since we are as a whole a housing co-operative and each of us owners we are supposed to be responsible for the co-op’s behavior, even though we are all saying it’s really the board officers’ fault.  Well, by negligence, ignorance, fear and apathy we have allowed corrupt boards to operate unconstrained we are guilty.  It is the collective behavior of Freedom West, even though in reality that of a lousy board, that outsiders see us at fault.  Why are the other board members, myself included, hadn’t held those board officers, especially the Board President and Secretary, accountable, and by extension, how come we as a community does not held the Board accountable?  Why do we let Mohammed Soriano-Bilal acting like a drug kingpin who fling his weights around, telling lies, doling out private favors, seizing properties, instilling fears, handing out moneys, playing rogue with elections and the bylaws, and finally, selling out the community behind everyone's back?  Why in instances certain part of the community acted so gullible, barbaric, and uncivilized without any sense of learning, education, and self-reflection.   In this account we failed as responsible shareholders and little wonder we get sued.

Let me be realistic.  To create a community of responsible shareholders we need clean and conscientious, hardworking, and effective leadership.  Unfortunately we had none.  Throughout his three years of control all we got from the Bilal Gangs were lies, deceits, trickery, and threats.  Devoid of necessary leadership and for lack of community consciousness we suffer as a whole.

By racket I don’t mean everyone you see sitting on the “front table” in those meetings bad people.  The others are not strong enough or had the information or energy to challenge them;  they are just got frustrated with these usurpers.  The main racket members are specifically Mohammed Soriano-Bilal himself, Gideon Tesfaye, Renita Mason, and Samuel Shamonda, three of those four should not get involved in deciding board businesses.  The first three are mean, corrupt, and lawless to the hilt, as they appropriate Freedom West properties as if they are their own.  The fourth, Sam Shamonda, I don’t know.  That's why I took no stock when I hear certain sycophantic residents praise them for them "working hard" and how much he/she appreciated the works.  They don't know what really working hard is like and how awful those "works".  Those old boards they made fun of worked too, and they did them better than this self-congratulatory clique.

Not me.  Because I know they hadn't worked hard enough.  That's was why I ran for the board with the intention of being Board President to take charge.  Not because I want yes people around me but I want these folks who claimed to "work so hard" to work harder.  

(4/29) Letter to Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, cc to two Republican Congressmen about Freedom West

Dear Congresswoman Pelosi,

Freedom West Homes, a San Francisco HUD Coop and largest west of the Missisippi, is asking your office to exercise its influence to obtain HUD money for building maintenance and renovation for our community.

Freedom West Homes had a workshop conducted by a paid consultant hired by its imposter Board President Mohammed Soriano-Bilal to get Freedom West residents and shareholders writing letters for your help to fix up the co-op.   According to Bilal, Freedom West is to ask for exception to HUD rules so that HUD could feed us money.  The consultant taught residents to say how special Freedom West Homes is to warrant such help for its “uniqueness”.  Bilal urged those attending resident organize to write such uniqueness letters.

Well, your office had been following Freedom West the past five years already, dated from my initial contact with you about my efforts to improve the community.  You should know by now its uniqueness is that of failures.  For decades Freedom West Homes is known for bad management and resident apathy.  It is hardly a coop because nobody wants to do anything or to understand anything with the attendant result that corruption ran rampant.

At this time Freedom West Homes is run by a former rapper and failed financial advisor by the name of Mohammed Soriano-Bilal who cloaked a veneer of respectability with the appellation Executive Director of a scantly frequented African-American Arts and Cultures Complex situated in a grungy neighborhood that rent space for exercise classes for white folks as well as for other non-cultural activities.  He is a toad for local politicians as well.

Within the housing cooperative, the so-called Board President Bilal is also fortified by his friend Julian Davis whom distinction was being alleged of women groping that doomed his bid for San Francisco District Supervisor four years ago.  Julian Davis is the Freedom West attorney who provides excuses for Bilal to skip annual board elections.  He bamboozled the League of Women Voters to conduct an unlawful and virulent recall vote as well as colluded to decertify a HUD-mandated election.  Soriano-Bilal also has a circle of people who will be given financial benefits once gotten hold of the money.

The top of the Freedom West pyramid is a racket.  Populating the so-called Freedom West Board now are hacks who never was elected or board members who termed out but refused to leave.  Freedom West is controlled now by a body of corrupt and opportunistic assortment of people, one that is worse than the one swept by the FBI some years back and put into prison.  They claim to represent the people but they are not. Sending money to Freedom West now could only let Bilal and his racket lining their pockets.

During that same letter writing workshop Bilal also instigated the San Francisco Police to arrest me, to great befuddlement of those in the room.  Right now they have succeeded in court to evict me from Freedom West for “nuisance” to the community.  It’s more like I could expose their corruption and threaten their strangle hold on power.  It is also my believe Bilal planned to run Freedom West to the ground so that he can feed us to the wolves for his own personal benefit.  If Freedom West needs money for maintenance, we wonder what happened to the $8.5M Bilal allegedly borrowed for us last year.

The only hope for Freedom West now is to reform, the reform that I advocated for so many years.  If there is any uniqueness for Freedom West, it would be a uniqueness that born from its commitment to execute a thorough reform from top to bottom, to turn ourselves from a failed community to a collaborative community where democracy, participation, and neighborliness is the rule.  I had outlined this vision in my HUD proposal last year.   But this vision cannot even get off the ground when I get run out of the community as the Bilal Racket is succeeding doing now.

My call to be a collaborative community was charged as “nuisance” by the Bilal racket.  I am the strongest advocate for transparency, competence, and accountability in the neighborhood.  Once I’m gone, no one will take up the battle flag.  Bilal may claim my battle call, but in their abominable conspiracy to evict me he and his fellow travellers have shown their venoms and true self, as consummate liars and opportunists.  They are wolves in sheep skins and can never be trusted.

My team won the board election last year but the imposter Bilal refused to let go and now Freedom West as run by this crooked racket is on its way to evict me.  It is because I stood in the way of plans by City politicians backed by rapacious developers who have invidious design on our huge and valuable property.  My team is the only true hope for Freedom West.  The only way we could justify for federal money is for Freedom West to stop its eviction process against me so that I could start leading the reforms that is so necessary for our survival.  Feeding federal money to the present bunch of usurpers would do disservice to American taxpayers.

I had cc this email to Republican Congressmen Edward Royce and Dana Rohrbacher.  I had the privilege of meeting  them both in Orange County.  Although our politics may differed, I think in this instance of against bending HUD rules to feed money to Freedom West without basic changes from ours part we are in total accord.  Freedom West has no system of transparency and accountability for audit trails and govern by a corrupt cabal.  It’s utter pork barrel and deceit.

We do need a lot of helps and our community needs to be saved.  I would ask for yours and the two Republican Congressmen’s support if Freedom West stops its invidious eviction proceeding against me and allow my elected team to start a process of vigorous reform.  Otherwise it’ll be money down the drain.

Sincerely Yours,

David Tse
Winning Board Member

Dear Ms. Morales,

I was alarmed about what Mohammed Soriano-Bilal told about the “negotiation” between him and HUD during the Freedom West Board meeting on March 17.  I was about to finalize a long letter to you informing you what is happening in Freedom West you probably don’t know about and my concern about HUD monetary penalties, until an uncalled for violence incident happened last night during a board meeting.  My blog at freedomwestdave.blogspot.com will describe what happened (even as now I hadn’t finish doing writing that new posting but I deem you should know about it before the weekend).  The big man was the security guard Renita Mason, who lost the last election, called to forcibly removed me from this meeting because she claimed I'm no longer a shareholder and trespassing.  And yes, out of the 1,000+ Freedom West residents, only two residents showed up in that board meeting.

Things are not hunky-dory in Freedom West as Bilal (he used that shortened form himself) led you to belief.  We are still much in violation of many of the deficiencies in the 2012 Management Review.  In fact, board governance is much worse than we ever had seen because of the arrogant, thuggish, and manipulative rule of Soriano-Bilal.

I and another board member are still carrying on the court fight over the last July’s board election.  Soriano-Bilal skipped the September election just as he skipped the election the year before.   In addition we are still facing a federal racketeering lawsuit against Freedom West which I believe Soriano-Bilal personally precipitated it by his vengeful and rash action.  He is resorting to a variety of shenanigans and to keep himself in power, giving all kind of excuses.  He is a smooth talker and persuasive (a motivation speaker himself after all) but in reality not trustworthy and believable.  As I always reminded myself whenever I got impressed by him: this man can do a good talk but never walk the talk.

While the election dispute is still in court, Soriano-Bilal and a few of his fake “board members” stripped me of my shareholder status.  It’s all unlawful but his lawyers are going to made good traction with it using flimsy evidence on flimsy laws.  They figured once I get evicted the election case will resolve itself since I no longer have standing in court when I’m out in the street and no longer Freedom West resident.  Not only these people usurpers who not only want to put you down but make sure you are completely out.  Bilal controls by fear and deceits.

As you should know me by now, I cannot cowed by such threats.  Bilal and Eamon Jafari, his eviction attorney, proposed they would drop the eviction if I promised I will not run for board election ever again.  How could I accept such blackmail?  The word I got was that his father was a board member but got thrown into prison in an FBI clean-up in the ‘80s.  The person saying that figures Bilal must have learned dirty tricks from his dad.  Well, my father was among the first board members in Freedom West over 40 years ago.  He’s not the kind who stood for corruption and injustice and stayed as far away from it as possible.  I’m just like him but don’t shy away.  My belief is that one must fight evils if one is in position to do so.  That’s how I see Bilal and his cohorts are doing now.  I cannot disregard convictions even they cost me, this time being risked be out in the street.  The Good Lord will provide.

I had posted in April 5 at in my blog my interrogatory in this case.  Even though it’s a personal eviction defense, the content reveals much about the problems we have in Freedom West under the Bilal administration.  I attached these propounding documents with this email for your perusal.  You need to read what I wrote to understand more about Freedom West.  The reading is quite dry because of the legal format I must subscribe for court submission.  However, for benefit of our residents and those who are concern about Freedom West I will post a thorough examination on these interrogatory documents later. Also attached is the combined termination letters I got from the kangaroo court he set up to carry out his personal vendetta against me.  Please click freedomwestdave.blogspot.com

Overall Freedom West is a barbaric place that’s far from working like a true co-op and will destroy itself if and subsume by unscrupulous developers if left to its device.  I have confidence on you and the people at the regional office in our prior conversation.  My view was further reinforced during talks I had with some of HUD’s frontline officers in a Berkeley housing forum. We need good enforcement and proper supervision from HUD and I stress it’s a serious responsibility HUD and Enforcement should not abnegate on with regard to Freedom West.

Sincerely,
David Tse

Hi Ms. Morales,

I have spoken to a number of long-time Freedom West shareholders over the weekend.  It seems that Mohammed Soriano-Bilal’s father wasn’t a Freedom West Board Member but the Site Administrator during those turbulent times when the FBI came and imprisoned a number of people.  I don’t know whether he served any jail time.  My apology.

Sincerely Yours,

David Tse
====================

April 26, 2016

Hi Supervisor Breed,

I need to have a meeting with you on the battle between Mohammed Soriano-Bilal and me within Freedom West.  You have known me since you first elected supervisor at Jane Morrison’s home and off and on we met each other in other activities as well as in Freedom West.  We especially appreciate that you were involved with us even before Mohammed Bilal came on board as Board President.  At this point things are getting ugly in Freedom West.  As I had told you when we at the Y and at the Housing Forum, Mr. Bilal had made our differences a personal and racial matter and cannot be tolerated.  At this point he just won a lawsuit where I represented myself in court against Julian Davis and his two other law partners from L.A.  The jury verdict on this uncalled-for unlawful detainer against me was nuisance against the Freedom West community.  I lost because I’m not a lawyer and it was one against three.

As you and Vallie Browne knew me for a long time, no one had complained against me until the coming of Bilal.  We knew it’s all political and should settle it through ideas and not through subterfuge like expelling me from where my family lived for forty years where my Dad was one of the original board members.  We need to discuss ways to resolve this situation as being active in District 5 and protecting the endangered residents living both in Freedom West and in Western Addition is important for me.  As unlawful retainer action moves very fast and a sheriff expulsion notice can be posted on my door anytime and I must be forced out from my home in two weeks, I need to have a meeting ASAP with you on how to deal with this urgent situation personally as a constituent and for Freedom West.

Sincerely Yours,
David Tse

(4/29) LAST POST WITHOUT THE PICTURES

Dear Freedom West Friends, Neighbors, and Fellow Activists,

Yours truly, the People’s Advocate, is rapidly sinking under the relentless assault of the downtown interests and its proxy, Mohammed Soriano-Bilal.

At present our huge HUD-Coop Freedom West Homes is in danger and govern by a racket of imposters, liars, and opportunists, all headed by the Head Deceiver himself, Mohammed Soriano-Bilal.  This imposter board president and goon is but a proxy for powerful downtown financial interests by posing respectfully as the executive director of the hardly visited African-American Arts and Culture Center in Western Addition. 
With few exceptions, these people were intended to sink our community for the sake of their own personal benefits and the interests of deep-pocket luxury residential/commercial complex developers.  They all thought they could get away with murder because they got the nod from political potentates in San Francisco like former Mayor and California House Speaker Willie Brown and Supervisor Board President London Breed by controlling our four near-downtown city blocks of connected real estate.

They figured they could devour the rest of us by dispose of the chief stumbling block to their master plan, yours truly David Tse.

No, all good people of Freedom West and San Francisco, we must not let these traitors and schemers having their ways.  We must realize their lies and rise up to defend our rights, our properties, and our family well-beings.  This is our neighborhood’s last stand.

Yours Truly,
David Tse
Fighting for the Interest of His Community and the Interest of the People in San Francisco
==============
By taking full control of Freedom West Homes, the largest HUD co-op west of the Mississippi, the rapacious development crowd will proceed to take rest of the Western Addition.  But first, they must make short order of this little nuisance blocking their way, David Tse.

This is a long story for Freedom West.  So let me give you the latest development and scheme in reverse.

1.      Action to expel David Tse, your long-time activist in Freedom West.  This Monday (4/25), the cabal of imposter president Mohammed Bilal, vice president Gideon Tesfaye, and fellow conspirators Darryl Stitt, property manager Barry Levy, and security chief Lloyd Ford managed to convince Judge Susanne Bolanos and the innocent jurors at the Superior Court that yours truly David Tse is a nuisance to Freedom West and hence deserved to be evicted.  David Tse, went to court alone representing himself, was no match facing a phalanx of lawyers headed by Julian Davis, former District 5 supervisor candidate/U.C. Hasting alumni, and two of his compatriots from Los Angeles.  In about three weeks the San Francisco Sheriff Department is to clear David Tse and his belongings from a place his family had been living for over forty years.  This should rid them the only stumbling block to their scheme to take over Freedom West for the greedy developers because he dared to stand up against these schemers by staking his personal safety and financial well-being for his believe in God, love, righteousness, and social justice.

2.     Mohammed Soriano-Bilal on the week before the unlawful detainer (tenant eviction) trial used the San Francisco police to arrest David Tse at a peaceable meeting of Freedom West shareholders.  He told the clueless arresting officers David Tse was trespassing.  The thirty attending residents were befuddled over this turn of event.  One shareholder later on told yours truly that if “they could do it to you, they would do it to anybody”.  Even though not greatly injured over this incident, I now personally understand and sympathize with young black men when they talk about police brutality.  Remember Mario Woods, Alex Nieto, Charleston, Ferguson, etc.

3.     During the same meeting, Soriano-Bilal, employing a contractor from consultant Devine & Gong, tried to fool Freedom West residents to write delusive sympathy letters to Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi to hoax out HUD funding into Freedom West so that he and his racket can use taxpayers money to line their own pockets.

4.     Freedom West is facing federal racketeering charges at the district level.  The lawsuit, I believe, came into being in the wake Bilal’s violation of a previous settlement agreement.  Although the lawsuit was over misdeeds done by a prior management, the offense of this Bilal Racket towers over whatever committed by previous ones.  Moreover, his gang is even more nefarious than the one thirty years ago when FBI came in to clean house.  Several Freedom West board members went to prison.  Mohammed Bilal appeared to have learned a few tricks from his father, who was then site administrator, as told by long-time residents.  This lawsuit will put a sink into Freedom West.

5.    Mohammed Soriano-Bilal misled Superior Court Judge Ronald E. Quidachay to decertify a properly held HUD-mandated Freedom West Board Election in which he lost.  He conspired with a fellow road traveller, Darryl Stitt, who himself initiated a class action lawsuit against the San Francisco Municipal Transport Authority (SFMTA).  Darryl Stitt did a bogus election fraud lawsuit against Freedom West with the full consent of Bilal and companies.   His plaintiff complaint could very well had written by the conniving defendant attorney Julian Davis himself.  Freedom West never showed up in court and Darryl Stitt won by default.    Mission accomplished! Freedom West Board reverted back to the corrupt bunch before the election.  HUD keep note!  This Board you are dealing with is fake. How could the words of this Darryl Stitt believable in any testimony against the SFMTA when he lied to the hilt during David Tse’s eviction proceeding and the legerdemain of this collusive lawsuit?

6.     The Bilal Gang summoned David Tse to court, charge him nuisance and endangerment to the community, more like he an endangerment to the Gang and their masters.  David Tse had neither money nor resource to fight them.

7.     Mohammed Soriano-Bilal and his lieutenant, Gideon Tesfaye and fellow accuser of David Tse, moved into their respective renovated townhouses from their previously less endowed apartments.  They used Freedom West resource to renovate these townhouses for their own pleasure.  This flagrant abuse of power cannot be consummated if David Tse and his team that won the July 2015 election were in place.

8.     Mohammed Soriano-Bilal, using Freedom West Management as fig leaf, posted a “Ten-Day Notice to Quit” – eviction’s first step, on David Tse’s door.  This was at a time Tse was grieving and busy arranging for his father’s funeral.  Mohammed Bilal is a sick man.

9.     Mohammed Bilal skipped the 2015 Board Election to continue his sellout agenda

10. Mohammed Bilal put together a flash mob to illegally force newly elected board members into hiding.  This racially charged “Recall Election” was done under the auspice of The League of Women Voter, who inexplicably disavowed its responsibility through its shameful involvement of a bloody exercise of raw instinct by the assembled Bilal crowd.  The League said they just follow what attorney Julian Davis Bilal’s friend ask them to do.

11. Mohammed Bilal and companies put together an angry flash mob to intimidate newly elected board members, sending one into hiding.  The remaining righteous board members persisted to accomplish what we legally needed to get done.  All these efforts were to no avail.

12. David Tse and his Humble Team won the Freedom West election, supposedly putting him in the helm of Freedom West.  But Mohammed Bilal will not relinquish power.  His gang and management disregard the election outcome and attacked.

13. David Tse’s Humble won the HUD-mandated make-up election for the year 2014.  This was accomplished in spite of the Bilal Board’s vote suppression tactics.   This Jim Crow tactic was especially galling coming from an African-American board in view of the shooting of the A.M.E. pastor in Charleston who to his dying days decry such voter-suppression rules

14.HUD required Mohammed Soriano-Bilal to hold make-up 2014 election after shareholders complaint.

15. Monumental loss for Mohammed Soriano-Bilal over a redevelopment vote by Freedom West shareholders during shareholder meeting.  He was so angry that he pulled out a fabulous email written by Build Inc., a local developer, charging David Tse asked for money.  Well, David Tse ain’t that kind of person, never was and never will.  That kind of thinking doesn’t run in his blood nor come with his heart.  Instead, I could now assure you Bilal is 100% that type of people, bloodthirsty and rapacious.  Bilal is a toad and needs to win for his masters, which included The Related Companies.  He later lied by saying he won the votes, to the liking of Related.

16. What is this Related Companies, it’s a gigantic New York based developer of luxury residential and commercial complexes.  The company’s crown jewel is the infamous Time-Warner Center in Manhattan.  The complex’s multi-million dollars residential units are owned by anonymous trust controlled by foreign billionaires where ill-gotten gains tied to where untraceable money flows.  The foreign owners have included government officials and close associates of officials from Russia, Colombia, Malaysia, China, Kazakhstan and Mexico. Some have been subject of government inquiries around the world, either personally or as heads of companies. The cases range from housing and environmental violations to financial fraud.  Freedom West, anyone interested?

17. David Tse submitted his own plan for Freedom West, a 20-page framework of a grass root initiated plan that is “of the people, for the people, and by the people”.  HUD was glad that some shareholders put such thoughts on an alternate proposal to Bilal’s.

18.Mohammed Soriano-Bilal submitted his (not really, Related’s) gentrifying, self-benefited, and community destroying ghetto plan to HUD.  That’s okay to HUD too, as long as the poor old folks in Freedom West get ensconced in a ghetto high rise, rented by decrepit senior residents no less.  That’s okay as long as they’re taken care of.

19.Mohammed Soriano-Bilal followed his masters’ beck, and calls, forcing Freedom West residents to give out their private financial information for a vacuous “income verification” scheme, with the eye of making them renters out of shareholders.   Holdouts were threatened with eviction. “Ten-Day Notice to Quit” anyone?  Vice President Gideon Tesfaye threatened to put income verification requirements into Occupancy Agreements.

20.Met with sympathetic African-American pastor, he told me some important people do not appreciate me, without naming names.  But he encouraged me to continue doing what I’d been doing, that is, for the people.  Important people don’t like little old me?  I must be doing something right.

21.Mohammed Soriano-Bilal decided not to hold the 2014 Board Election, afraid David Tse will beat his team.  He’s rightfully afraid September election would derail his grand scheme with Related derailed.

22. Mohammed Bilal and Related gave Freedom West residents (not too many went) a grand tour of its Bay Area Projects: renovated townhouses in Berkeley, senior housing in Oakland, and the luxury Paramount high rise in downtown San Francisco, all residential rentals.  I asked the Related representative: we are a co-op.  Reply: that is a problem.  Well, everyone.  I thought to myself: No Way, Mo’.  Bilal proudly displayed group photo we took at the Paramount on the Freedom West Newsletter, with my face conveniently snipped away.  Good riddance, I don’t want to be associated with that traitorous tour anyway.  (photos of the tours in my Facebook page: facebook/david.k.tse)

23. David Tse went everywhere, talking to whoever willing to listen to test responses from influential people to his shareability plan of a highly participative, highly educational, environmentally friendly, and socially equitable plan of integrative development in Freedom West where residents life can only get better and live with dignity.  A plan based on the triple bottom line approach: financially viable, environmentally friendly, and socially equitable.  Received much positive receptions.

24.Mohammed Bilal and his Gang removed David Tse from the Freedom West board in a comedic board and shareholder votes that replete with procedural and voting impropriety, allege him of conflict of interests.  They don’t recognize I’m actually protecting Freedom West interest.  More to the point, Bilal was worried I could see through his gentrification scheme and prevent it from realization.  I could see through his scheme even sitting outside that board.

25.Mohammed Soriano-Bilal became Board President.  The name Related stood out.  According to him, you have to give up lands if you are going to get money.  I disagreed.  We could get the money as long as our community got together and act like a real co-op.

26. Mohammed Soriano-Bilal and Gideon Tesfaye got on the Freedom West Board with practically no efforts of their own, just sitting and sleeping. David Tse did all the legworks for them, collecting votes for them thru and thru, overwhelming defeated their opponents, the kind of activities board candidates should do and some actually did.  Hardly anybody knew them but I was impressed with Bilal’s intelligence.  He three years later called my hard works on his behalf “nuisance” and “harassment on the community”.  Little did I know they were consummate opportunists and corrupt to the core.

The above is a synopsis of recent events at Freedom West in inverse order.  Now I could only divulge Mohammed Bilal and his gang’s evil nature only by bits because I would be busy over my impending dislodgment from my home, starting packing up, unless you good people have better ideas for me.  Personally, this is a harrowing time.  I could only do so much.  Who among you dare to take the gauntlet in my place to fight this corrupt cabal pretending to represent you?

HUD, Mohammed Bilal just invalidated the election you called for.  Ms. Morales, what are you going to do about it?   Is Freedom West is good hand under an inveterate liar and usurper by the name of Mohammed Soriano-Bilal?  Even with Related, are you going to trust this fellow?  He’s going to stick it to you as he stuck it to his fellow residents as long as it’s done to his favor.
======================
Since I will have only three weeks left in Freedom West, I’m going to tell you as much as I could before leaving the stage.

1.     Disbelieve everything Mohammed Bilal said.  He lie 100% under oath in court, he would lied to you, as he had lied to you throughout the time he sat on the board, talking in lies and half-truths.  Don’t let his sweet talking self deceives you.

2.     He is 100% selling out to luxury condo developers, just that he’s sugar-coated with the term revitalization instead of redevelopment.  He is sleeping with the same crowd and is on the way of screwing all of us in Freedom West.

(4/28) RISE UP! FREEDOM WEST PEOPLE, SAN FRANCISCO PEOPLE!


Dear Freedom West Friends, Neighbors, and Fellow Activists,

Yours truly, the People’s Advocate, is rapidly sinking under the relentless assault of the downtown interests and its proxy, Mohammed Soriano-Bilal.

At present our huge HUD-Coop Freedom West Homes is in danger and govern by a racket of imposters, liars, and opportunists, all headed by the Head Deceiver himself, Mohammed Soriano-Bilal.  This imposter board president and goon is but a proxy for powerful downtown financial interests by posing respectfully as the executive director of the hardly visited African-American Arts and Culture Center in Western Addition. 
With few exceptions, these people were intended to sink our community for the sake of their own personal benefits and the interests of deep-pocket luxury residential/
commercial complex developers.  They all thought they could get away with murder because they figured they got the nods from political potentates in San Francisco like former Mayor and California House Speaker Willie Brown and Supervisor Board President London Breed by controlling our four near-downtown city blocks of connected real estate.
He had the Bay Bridge named after him
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors elevated first term Supervisor London Breed to its presidency on Jan. 8, voting 8-3, then 11-0 to make her the second Black woman after Doris Ward in 1990 to hold the seat. The board president is second only to the mayor as the most powerful person in San Francisco.
My Supervisor London Breed also
They figured they could devour the rest of us by dispose of the chief stumbling block to their master plan, yours truly David Tse.

No, all good people of Freedom West and San Francisco, we must not let these traitors and schemers having their ways.  We must realize their lies and rise up to defend our rights, our properties, and our family well-beings.  This is our neighborhood’s last stand.

David Tse
Fighting for the Interest of His Community
and the Good People in San Francisco

Downtrodden people of San Francisco, Arise!!!

===========================================

David Tse and Freedom West Homes
By taking full control of Freedom West Homes, the largest HUD co-op west of the Mississippi, the rapacious development crowd will proceed to take rest of the Western Addition.  But first, they must make short order of this little nuisance blocking their way, David Tse.

This is a long story for Freedom West.  So let me give you the latest development and happenings in reverse.
I got creamed inside this court room, while Bilal and gang had a jolly good time telling jurors how dangerous I am.  Venoms from these vipers flowed abound

David Tse is no match for Julian Davis, the D-5 Supervisor candidate fours years ago
1.      
Action to expel David Tse, your long-time activist in Freedom West.  This Monday (4/25), the cabal of imposter president Mohammed Bilal, vice president Gideon Tesfaye, and fellow conspirators Darryl Stitt, property manager Barry Levy, and security chief Lloyd Ford managed to convince Judge Susanne Bolanos and the innocent jurors at the Superior Court that yours truly David Tse is a nuisance to Freedom West and hence deserved to be evicted.  David Tse, went to court alone representing himself, was no match facing a phalanx of lawyers headed by Julian Davis, former District 5 supervisor candidate/U.C. Hasting alumni, and two of his compatriots from Los Angeles.  In about three weeks the San Francisco Sheriff Department is to clear David Tse and his belongings from a place his family had been living for over forty years.  This should rid them the only stumbling block to their scheme to take over Freedom West for the greedy developers because he dared to stand up against these schemers by staking his personal safety and financial well-being for his believe in God, love, righteousness, and social justice.
Soriano-Bilal laid a trap on me
Manacled and shackled inside the cruiser, arms twisted
To the Emergency Room for Checkup

2.     Mohammed Soriano-Bilal on the week before the unlawful detainer (tenant eviction) trial used the San Francisco police to arrest David Tse at a peaceable meeting of Freedom West shareholders.  He told the clueless arresting officers David Tse was trespassing.  The thirty attending residents were befuddled over this turn of event.  One shareholder later on told yours truly that if “they could do it to you, they would do it to anybody”.  Even though not greatly injured over this incident, I now personally understand and sympathize with young black men when they talk about police brutality.  Remember Mario Woods, Alex Nieto, Charleston, Ferguson, etc.
Bilal telling us to lie, just like him
3.     During the same meeting, Soriano-Bilal, employing a contractor from consultant Devine and Gong, tried to fool Freedom West residents to write delusive sympathy letters to Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi to hoax out HUD funding into Freedom West so that he and his racket can use taxpayers money to line their own pockets.

4.     Freedom West is facing federal racketeering charges at the district level.  The lawsuit, I believe, came into being in the wake Bilal’s violation of a previous settlement agreement.  Although the lawsuit was over misdeeds done by a prior management, the offense of this Bilal Racket towers over whatever committed by previous ones.  Moreover, his gang is even more nefarious than the one thirty years ago when FBI came in to clean house.  Several Freedom West board members went to prison.  Mohammed Bilal appeared to have learned a few tricks from his father, who was then site administrator, as told by long-time residents.  This lawsuit will put a sink into Freedom West.

Darryl Stitt 2 yrs ago, at the Related showcase
5.     Mohammed Soriano-Bilal misled Superior Court Judge Ronald E. Quidachay to decertify a properly held HUD-mandated Freedom West Board Election in which he lost.  He conspired with a fellow road traveller, Darryl Stitt, who himself initiated a class action lawsuit against the San Francisco Municipal Transport Authority (SFMTA).  Darryl Stitt did a bogus election fraud lawsuit against Freedom West with the full consent of Bilal and companies.   His plaintiff complaint could very well had written by the conniving defendant attorney Julian Davis himself.  Freedom West never showed up in court and Darryl Stitt won by default.    Mission accomplished! Freedom West Board reverted back to the corrupt bunch before the election.  HUD keep note!  This Board you are dealing with is fake. How could the words of this Darryl Stitt believable in any testimony against the SFMTA when he lied to the hilt during David Tse’s eviction proceeding and the legerdemain of this collusive lawsuit.

6.     The Bilal Gang summoned David Tse to court, charge him nuisance and endangerment to the community, more like he an endangerment to the Gang and their masters.  David Tse had neither money nor resource to fight them.

Bilal and Tesfaye both live on third floors; their old abodes now boarded up
7.     Mohammed Soriano-Bilal and his lieutenant, Gideon Tesfaye and fellow accuser of David Tse, moved into their respective renovated townhouses from their previously less endowed apartments.  They used Freedom West resource to renovate these townhouses for their own pleasure.  This flagrant abuse of power cannot be consummated if David Tse and his team that won the July 2015 election were in place.
Soriano-Bilal wrote a long message, telling me to clear my belongings

While he ensconced comfortably in his ill-gotten townhouse. People told me his van belongs to the African-American Arts and Culture Complex, where he abused his power just as much.


While I had to do whatever necessary

And not much time for funeral matters
Mohammed Soriano-Bilal, using Freedom West Management as fig leaf, posted a “Ten-Day Notice to Quit” – eviction’s first step, on David Tse’s door.  This was at a time Tse was grieving and busy arranging for his father’s funeral.  Mohammed Bilal is a sick man.


Thanks a lot.  Soriano-Bilal, for being such a considerate man.
9.     Mohammed Bilal skipped the 2015 Board Election to continue his sellout agenda
Newly elected board members continued what we're supposed to do
Kalco turned on the fire alarm.  We persevered.
We came out the Rec Hall with our dignity intact, in spite of Bilal's rogue tactics
Bilal supporters continued to harass newly elected board members

10. Mohammed Bilal put together a flash mob to illegally force newly elected board members into hiding.  This racially charged “Recall Election” was done under the auspice of The League of Women Voter, who inexplicably disavowed its responsibility through its shameful involvement of a bloody exercise of raw instinct by the assembled Bilal crowd.  The League said they just follow what attorney Julian Davis Bilal’s friend ask them to do.
Mohammed Soriano-Bilal's Culture and Arts Handiworks, 
his supporters all ready for a public lynching
11. Mohammed Bilal and companies put together an angry flash mob to intimidate newly elected board members, sending one into hiding.  The remaining righteous board members persisted to accomplish what we legally needed to get done.  All these was to no avail.
Bilal would not let go all along

12.David Tse and his Humble Team won the Freedom West election, supposedly putting him in the helm of Freedom West.  But Mohammed Bilal will not relinquish power.  His gang and management disregard the election outcome and attacked.
Me canvassing, helping people

Election night counting

We won!  But Bilal supporters liverous, screaming "RECALL"
13. David Tse’s Humble won the HUD-mandated make-up election for the year 2014.  This was accomplished in spite of the Bilal Board’s vote suppression tactics.   This Jim Crow tactic was especially galling coming from an African-American board in view of the shooting of the A.M.E. pastor in Charleston who to his dying days decry such voter-suppression rules
During the election, the Bilal Gang already started to harrass me

But in the end, people's votes prevailed



14. HUD required Mohammed Soriano-Bilal to hold make-up 2014 election after shareholders complaint.
Bilal tried to sneak his decision under the radar, but people found out

And in droves

People rejected his cynical Redevelopment

And he still decided to lie.  Now every one knew what they were doing.  And he blamed it all on me.
15. Monumental loss for Mohammed Soriano-Bilal over a redevelopment vote by Freedom West shareholders during shareholder meeting.  He was so angry that he pulled out a fabulous email written by Build Inc., a local developer, charging David Tse asked for money.  Well, David Tse ain’t that kind of person, never was and never will.  That kind of thinking doesn’t run in his blood nor come with his heart.  Instead, I could now assure you Bilal is 100% that type of people, bloodthirsty and rapacious.  Bilal is a toad and needs to win for his masters, which included The Related Companies.  He later lied by saying he won the votes, to the liking of Related.

The Related Time-Warner Center
Russian billionaire sold penthouse for $51M
16. What is this Related Companies, it’s a gigantic New York based developer of luxury residential and commercial complexes.  The company’s crown jewel is the infamous Time-Warner Center in Manhattan.  The complex’s multi-million dollars residential units are owned by anonymous trust controlled by foreign billionaires where ill-gotten gains tied to where untraceable money flowed.  The foreign owners have included government officials and close associates of officials from Russia, Colombia, Malaysia, China, Kazakhstan and Mexico.  Some have been subject of government inquiries around the world, either personally or as heads of companies.  The cases range from housing and environmental violations to financial fraud.  Freedom West, billionaires, any one interested?
Me submitting the People's Plan to HUD

Freedom West is our home and not to be sold out
17. David Tse submitted his own plan for Freedom West, a 20-page framework of a grass root initiated plan that is “of the people, for the people, and by the people”.  HUD was glad that some shareholders put such thoughts on an alternate proposal to Bilal’s.

18.Mohammed Soriano-Bilal submitted his (not really, Related’s) gentrifying, self-benefited, and community destroying ghetto plan to HUD.  That’s okay to HUD too, as long as the poor old folks in Freedom West get ensconced in a ghetto high rise, rented by decrepit senior residents no less.  That’s okay as long as they’re taken care of.

19. Mohammed Soriano-Bilal followed his masters’ beck, and calls, forcing Freedom West residents to give out their private financial information for a vacuous “income verification” scheme, with the eye of making them renters out of shareholders.   Holdouts were threatened with eviction. “Ten-Day Notice to Quit” anyone?  Vice President Gideon Tesfaye threatened to put income verification requirements into Occupancy Agreements.

20.Met with sympathetic African-American pastor, he told me some important people do not appreciate me, without naming names.  But he encouraged me to continue doing what I’d been doing, that is, for the people.  Important people don’t like little old me?  I must be doing something right.

21. Mohammed Soriano-Bilal decided not to hold the 2014 Board Election, afraid David Tse will beat his team.  He’s rightfully afraid September election would derail his grand scheme with Related derailed.
Paramount condo, am I supposed to sleep on this?

I'm sure we'll all have a good time like this with the Bilal plan

Bilal happily trudging along, his relationship with Related assured

We'll all be overlooking downtown
And learn to meditate
Everyone came back from a nice field trip
22.Mohammed Bilal and Related gave Freedom West residents (not too many went) a grand tour of its Bay Area Projects: renovated townhouses in Berkeley, senior housing in Oakland, and the luxury Paramount high rise in downtown San Francisco, all residential rentals.  I asked the Related representative: we are a co-op.  Reply: that is a problem.  Well, everyone.  I thought to myself: No Way, Mo’.  Bilal proudly displayed group photo we took at the Paramount on the Freedom West Newsletter, with my face conveniently snipped away.  Good riddance, I don’t want to be associated with that conniving tour anyway.  (photos of the tours in my Facebook page: facebook/david.k.tse)

23. David Tse went everywhere, talking to whoever willing to listen to test responses from influential people to his shareability plan of a highly participative, highly educational, environmentally friendly, and socially equitable plan of integrative development in Freedom West where residents life can only get better and live with dignity.  A plan based on the triple bottom line approach: financially viable, environmentally friendly, and socially equitable.  Received much positive receptions.

24. Mohammed Bilal and his Gang removed David Tse from the Freedom West board in a comedic board and shareholder votes that replete with procedural and voting impropriety, allege him of conflict of interests.  They don’t recognize I’m actually protecting Freedom West interest.  More to the point, Bilal was worried I could see through his gentrification scheme and prevent it from realization.  I could see through his scheme even sitting outside that board.
The removal of David Tse as board member few months after Bilal got on the board, no notices, nothing.  He went in front of everyone and started to tell lies.  Once got everyone convinced he put on a vote.  The entire meetings was done against the Freedom West Bylaws and couldn't fulfill the requisite number of people and its procedure.  But he didn't care because he's the rule.
Does this Chinese man in front knew what's going on?  Everyone raised their hands.  He raised his as well.  Do we have 350 people in the room, not even 60?  Mohammed Bilal sure knew now to smear somebody on the fly and put on a good show.
I witnessed this farce in utter bemusement.  Good grief.  No use to fight him in the room.
25.Mohammed Soriano-Bilal became Board President.  The name Related stood out.  According to him, you have to give up lands if you are going to get money.  I disagreed.  We could get the money as long as our community got together and act like a real co-op.

26. Mohammed Soriano-Bilal and Gideon Tesfaye got on the Freedom West Board with practically no efforts of their own, just sitting and sleeping. David Tse did all the legworks for them, collecting votes for them thru and thru, overwhelming defeated their opponents, the kind of activities board candidates should do and some actually did.  Hardly anybody knew them but I was impressed with Bilal’s intelligence.  He three years later called my hard works on his behalf “nuisance” and “harassment on the community”.  Little did I know they were consummate opportunists and corrupt to the core.
 
All Bilal did was just taped his posters

While I collected votes for him and Gideon Tesfaye, as well as two others

Shareholders welcome me into their folds, Bilal three years later call this "shareholders harassment"

He wasn't even around to celebrate "his" victory
===============
The above is a synopsis of recent events at Freedom West in inverse order.  Now I could only divulge Mohammed Bilal and his gang’s evil nature only by bits because I would be busy over my impending dislodgment from my home, start packing up, unless you good people have better ideas for me.  Personally, this is a harrowing time.  I could only do so much.  Who among you dare to take the gauntlet in my place to fight this corrupt cabal pretending to represent you?

HUD, Mohammed Bilal just invalidated the election you called for.  Ms. Lydia Morales, what are you going to do about it?   Is Freedom West is good hand under an inveterate liar and usurper by the name of Mohammed Soriano-Bilal?  Even with Related, are you going to trust this fellow?  He’s going to stick it to you as he stuck it to his fellow residents as long as it’s done to his favor.
================================ 
I got creamed in this court room

Since probably I will have only three weeks left in Freedom West, I’m going to tell you as much as I could before leaving the stage.


Don't believe this guy actually talking about diversity?
He's more like this guy, Jihadi John

How about Jihadi Mo'?  Going to get you down and out.  
And cut you down
1.     Disbelieve everything Mohammed Bilal said.  He lie 100% under oath in court, he will lie to you, as he had lied to you throughout the time he sat on the board, talking in lies and half-truths.  Don’t let his sweet talking self deceives you.  This man is accountable to no one.  The man is vicious, immoral, and of questionable character.

Do not believe in his Ra Ra; the man is a motivational speaker, all talk but no walk
2.     He is 100% selling out to luxury condo developers, just that he’s sugar-coated with the term revitalization instead of redevelopment.  He is sleeping with the same crowd and is on the way of screwing all of us in Freedom West.
