John Hoff v. City of Seattle: Minneapolis is next

Some readers think I spend too much time looking for negative information about John Hoff a.k.a. Johnny Northside of North Minneapolis. They are right but, I continue to find cases like the one posted below where John does something stupid and rather than either learn from it or take responsibility, he sues whoever holds him to the fire and plays the "victim" and in this case, he claimed his rights were violated again. Click here for the other law suit against the city of Seattle... more-dirt-on-john-hoff-uncovered
Folks let me remind all of you that Minneapolis councilman, Don Samuels is a good friend of John's.

Brutal police behavior was recorded on video

"In the claim against the city, John Hoff of Seattle is seeking unspecified damages for being gassed at least twice by police, and hit at least once by a projectile during WTO protests. Hoff also claimed violations of his state and federal rights."

Johnny Northside Takes a Seat... To High Court!

Minneapolis City Councilman Don Samuels, may want to know what kind of ultra-liberal, nut-case he has in John Hoff and him kissing his ass all over the Internet and on his blog, The Adventures of Johnny Northside. Posted below is a copy of the court ruling in the case of the City of Seattle v. Hoff. It is just a matter of time before John gets irked at the city council and goes to court over something so stupid as the case below.
At least I don't have to worry about John Hoff of North Minneapolis, pulling a double standard on me like Don Samuels does.

“SEATTLE SITTING ORDINANCE” UPHELD AGAINST CONSTITUTIONAL ATTACK -- In City of Seattle v. McConahy, City of Seattle v. Hoff, 86 Wn. App. 557 (Div. I, 1997), the Court of Appeals upholds the constitutionality of the “Seattle sitting ordinance.” Under that ordinance, it is a civil infraction for any person to sit or lie on the sidewalk in downtown Seattle and other neighborhood commercial zones between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. except in an emergency, or if he or she is in a wheelchair or on a bench or in a bus zone or patronizing a commercial establishment or attending a permitted event.

The facts in the two cases on review are described by the Court of Appeals as follows:

McConahy was cited while sitting on a street bulb with a group of friends, eating pizza, watching her friends play chess for change, and sometimes panhandling. Police officers approached the group and informed them that they were violating the ordinance. Her friends stood, but McConahy remained seated protesting the ordinance. McConahy wore an army jacket decorated with an American flag and a slogan that said, "Fuck your American dream." She also wore a button that said, "Sitting is not a crime." Hoff was cited while sitting reading a book and leaning against a building with leaflets advertising a protest against the ordinance in his lap. They had separate trials in municipal court. The Hoff court heard testimony and allowed extensive argument on his constitutional claims, and the McConahy court accepted much of this record. Both courts found that the defendants violated the ordinance and rejected their free expression and substantive due process claims.

The Court of Appeals rejects the defendants’ varied constitutional challenges to the sitting ordinance. However, the Court of Appeals warns that its ruling in this case is limited:
While we decline to invalidate the ordinance in this case, we wish to make clear what we are not deciding. First, we express no opinion about whether the ordinance is or is not good social policy. We hold only that the ordinance is constitutionally valid legislation. SMC 15.48.040 is quintessential legislative policy making, and we will not disturb the policy decisions made by legislative bodies unless they are unconstitutional or conflict with state law. We also hold that the City did not violate appellants' right to free expression because Hoff and McConahy were not involved in expressive activity when they were cited. But we do not decide whether, on different facts involving a protected activity or speech, SMC 15.48.040 would be a valid time, place, manner restriction. We also do not decide whether homeless residents could establish the requisite disparate impact to invoke the protection of the Privileges and Immunities Clause because these appellants have not done so.
Result: Affirmance of Seattle Municipal Court convictions for Sarah McConahy and John Hoff under sitting ordinance.

Johnny Northside Back Tracks

Upon looking at the comments posted by John Hoff on the Adventures of Johnny Northside, it appears John has deleted all of the comments. It must have something to do with my posting the proof of the video he claimed I am lying about.
Why would John delete those nasty comments?
I have told John in private that this is not about my friend. This is about me being devoted to exposing John for what he is. A hypocrite.

Johnny Northside Calls B.S.& Anti-Johnny Goes All-In

"John Hoff" a.k.a. John Hoffman a.k.a. Johnny Northside
Photo by Jim Watkins
I have always thought that bluffing is a dangerous game and the safe bet is to have a good hand. Whether or not the opponent thinks you are bluffing is not important at that point. Well, John Hoff a.k.a. John Hoffman a.k.a. Johnny Northside had the following to say after being informed that a meeting was recorded on video back in April...

"Jim (who likes to call himself the "DFW Mentor" and claims expertise in real estate) claims to have video covertly shot of a meeting I had with him at Broadway Pizza, along with my 12-year-old child.

Of course, nothing of note was SAID at that meeting, and it was actually a friendly meeting, and I think Jim is lying about having any video."

I have been advised to not post any of the video online because, it provides too much content that would be more useful in court than online. So, I decided to take a still shot of the video and post that instead.
John still likes to link my name with my friend and somehow he thinks this bothers me. Not at all. It simply goes to prove the very points that John has made in his emails where he threatens to do exactly that.
This isn't about my friend. This is about exposing a total nut case who has made a career out of hurting others while bucking the system. In short, no one has ever held John accountable for his actions until.... Now.

John Hoff the Name Caller

John Hoff a.k.a. Johnny Northside who resides at 2226 Bryant Ave N, Minneapolis, MN had these kind words to say in his comments section of his blog today. Jill Clark, are you getting all this?

On another note, I have rejected four or five comments from Jim Watkins of Texas, self-described "best friend" of Thomas Balko, one of the imprisoned T.J. Waconia mortgage fraudsters. Jim calls himself a "best friend" but I prefer the more accurate and descriptive term of "greased up prison errand boy."

Jim (who likes to call himself the "DFW Mentor" and claims expertise in real estate) claims to have video covertly shot of a meeting I had with him at Broadway Pizza, along with my 12-year-old child.

Of course, nothing of note was SAID at that meeting, and it was actually a friendly meeting, and I think Jim is lying about having any video. But all the same, for the record, I've been rejecting the comments of this TROLL, Jim Watkins the DFW Mentor, and I will continue to reject his comments on the basis of him being a troll.

Generally, though, his comments question whether the individuals who post the signs are, in fact, scammers and
slumlords and Jim claims to have called them about the removal and destruction of the signs. Whatever.

If I gave a rip, I would have bothered to blur out the phone number on the signs, but obviously I don't give a rip. North Minneapolis has the same right as other neighborhoods to NOT have our boulevards and utility poles used as free advertising space by slippery, scammy entrepreneurs. I remove the signs, Jeff removes the signs, and I hope others will take a moment to remove the signs as well.

November 29, 2009 10:30 AM

A funny thought that is worth looking into:
A person has a right to sit on a sidewalk, right? A certain pioneer in Seattle took that as far as he could in court. WAIT... That someone was John Hoff! So, how about we organize a little meeting in front of John's house and we all just sit on the sidewalk. Even better, we can hand out copies of John's writings with his opinions of "cops" where he calls them "pigs."
Why do that? I would think it would be great fun to have on hand when his pals from the 4th precinct show up after he calls about the sit down in front of his house.

We Burn "We Buy Houses" Signs... So What If It Violates City Ordinance

All pictures by John Hoff

Johnny Northside has decided it is his right to take signs (he steals them really but, I am sure he will have a logical reason for stealing) from the area and promptly burm them.
I copied the city ordinance regarding Recreational Fires.

178.10. Definitions. Recreational fire. A small outdoor fire burning approved materials for pleasure, religious, ceremonial, cooking, warmth or similar purposes.

Approved materials. Fuel for a recreational fire consisting solely of unpainted wood which has not been treated in any manner with chemicals or preservatives. (2003-Or-143, § 1, 12-15-03) .

178.20. Applicable rules. Every person starting, engaging in, conducting or hosting a recreational fire shall observe and comply with the following regulations, which are reflected in or are in addition to those imposed by the Minnesota State Fire Code:

(2) Recreational fires shall not be conducted within twenty-five (25) feet of a structure or combustible material
(3) A surrounding fire barrier of non-combustible material that is at least six (6) inches in height must be used.
(4) Only approved materials may be burned in a recreational fire.
(6) On-site fire-extinguishing equipment - such as operable garden hoses, sand and shovels, water buckets or barrels, or a portable fire extinguisher with a minimum 4-A rating - shall be readily available for use at recreational fires

I didn't see any fire extinguishing equipment in the pictures but, I see trash, leaves and chairs as well as a box of wood behind his son which has treated and/or stained wood (not approved). I missed this the first time I looked but, in the third picture on the lower right side there is a big Rottweiller dog standing by watching the sign burning. I hope the yard is fenced in because, that dog has no collar or leash round its neck. Another code violation that John does not feel apply to him.

This is the post from Johnny Northside's blog titled, We Burn "We Buy Houses" Signs
"On Sunday, I put together a last-minute father/son activity with my 12-year-old, Alex: we went around collecting the "We Buy Houses" signs littering the grassy boulevards of NoMi. My blog post about this activity actually made the Twin Cities Daily Planet, hooray.

Well, it's Thanksgiving and I have visitation with my son AGAIN. We'll be enjoying our Thanksgiving with the fine men and women of the Fourth Precinct but, in the meantime, we thought it would be fun to have a little bonfire. So we burned the signs and roasted some Peeps."
I posted two comments to JohnnyNorthside.com but, John has not allowed either one to be posted. Thats all right because, I copy them all to show later that they did not have anything that would cause them to not be posted.

Attention Jill Clark

RE: Public appeal to Attorney Jill Clark

Miss Clark,
Please know and take into consideration that Jim Watkins has done extensive research and has located dozens of articles and documents about John Hoff. All of which may be of help to you in a legal capacity.
I understand that you are not able to discuss anything that is related to cases you currently have but, I would like to offer you this information (all public information) for you to review.
Thank you,

Johnny Northside Loves His House in NoMi--!

John Hoff a.k.a. Johnny Northside photo

It has been a while since "John Hoff" has come after me with his public attempts to give me a bad name by linking me with a friend who has been crucified by the media, politicians, former friends and lets not forget... John Hoff as well. Thats alright though because, when you live a life that doesn't revolve around crime, you can sleep at night with the knowledge that you made the right choice to choose other ways to live your life. Enough about that.

I think it is important for people to protect themselves after working hard while sticking to the philosophy of "Always try to do the right thing." You never know when you may find yourself having to defend yourself against people who make their living promoting themselves by using intimidation, public information and dirty force against those that have chosen to do the opposite.
They even change their identities at times when Johnny Northside, John Hoff and John Hoffman are separate personalities one person has. Sort of like Sybil.

What can someone do to defend themselves against people who don't have any concern for other people and what happens to them in their lives?
Recording phone calls and keeping them on hand should you need to prove you were threatened.
Perhaps, you can document those special moments where face to face conversations took place and things were said against you and others. An example could be as simple as a hidden video camera recording your chat while you enjoy a nice pizza over lunch.
Maybe you can save emails that have been sent to you that show how you were bullied by bottom feeders such as Johnny Northside.

Enough of my babbling! Here is the link to The Adventures of Johnny Northside and his latest post, (click here) I Love my home in NoMi.
It is a good read and it does a good job of showing an example of how someone like John Hoff operates.
I wonder if John will approve the comment I wrote and submitted to his blog after reading the post. I get a feeling he will not want to have my words appear on his site so..... Here is a copy of what I submitted:

Hi John!
I am looking forward to that something special you have for me.
Recently, I have felt very special as I have begun to understand how Seattle was such a special place for you while you lived there. So many memories.

By the way John, I have not lived in Plano since 2002. Could I help you out with verifying your upcoming special assault of me?
Take care John.
Note: John claims I live in Plano, Texas but that is a false statement. I once lived in Plano several years ago but, I have not lived there since 2002.

Johnny Northside: Lunatic with an Agenda

"I AM the City Council"
This blog has stated many times that John Hoff is on a mission to gain political power and once he gets it (IF he gets it), watch out! For anyone who has allowed him to become a friend, you shall see why that was a mistake. John has been very public about his new found chum, councilman Don Samuels but, little does Samuels know what John has up his sleeve. All readers of this blog should keep in mind that we are not talking about a person in his early 20's with grand daydreams of fixing the world. We are talking about a person who at the time of the article was in his early 30's.
Don't take my word for it. Take John Hoff's word for it. Below are quotes taken from the article published by the Seattle Weekly on August 9, 2000. John's words are in bold.

"Hoff is also looking into the constitutionality of North Dakota's recently revised recall law, which he claims discriminates against third-party officeholders by making it too easy for a minority to wage a recall. And if he loses, he threatens to move to other wards and run against incumbent council members he says have conspired against him. But at times he seems aware of the heavy odds facing him: "I am fighting the firefight of my life," he notes.

And John Hoff wants you to move to Grand Forks to join him. "I could show any Seattle activist how to take this place over," he says. "It's blood in the streets, it's headlines every day. I am the City Council now, I have the power. Is that crazy?"

In the region that gave us the leftie shoestring victory of US Senator Paul Wellstone and the gonzo, radical centrism of Governor Jesse Ventura, Hoff may have a point; he may be at the start of something big.

You might make plans to move to Grand Forks quickly, before the recall election ends Hoff's public career.

Or, you might brace yourself. After law school, Hoff says, he's going to start a law firm—specializing in record law, lesbian issues, and international space law—and open offices in Grand Forks, Hollywood, and . . . Seattle. Then, he adds confidently, he will get a state legislative seat, then make the jump to the US Senate as the first Green libertarian. John Hoff has tasted power, and he likes it.

More Dirt on John Hoff Uncovered

What I find so amusing is that John Hoff aka Johnny Northside, uses the Internet as his main weapon against those who challenge him. Yet, it is the very same Internet that continues to reveal the truth about this blogger and his anti-government agenda.

I have copied and pasted a little nugget that turned up from Seattle about John Hoff and the extremes he went to in trying to protect his right to... Sit down. A true pioneer!


By Susan Paynter P-I Columnist

Wednesday, February 7, 1996

Section: News, Page: B1

John Hoff, a k a John Hoffman, is an appealing sort of fellow. Even Seattle City Attorney Mark Sidran, whom Hoff likes to call Satan's little helper, would have to agree.
Hoff's latest legal appeal of Seattle's no-sitting-on-sidewalks law is pending before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

And today, the Displacement Coalition activist and agitator for the Community for Creative Chaos plans to appeal a Seattle Department of Engineering ruling on his request for a street use permit. For $60, it would have allowed him to sit for two hours yesterday on the curb at 4321 University Way N.E. while engaging in a free-speech demonstration.
That is, if Hoff had agreed to the terms:
-- Not interfering with pedestrians.
-- Sitting passively, doing nothing to draw a crowd and using no props.
-- Carrying a copy of the permit on his person at all times.
-- And not inviting others to sit with, near, or on him.
Was it unrelenting rain that stopped Hoff from a sodden sit?
Neither rain nor sleet, etc., Hoff said yesterday. ``It's the principle of the thing," he inevitably added.
Hoff admitted that he and members of the ``very appealing" Displacement Coalition were ``amused and amazed" when, after jumping through another city hoop and notifying abutting property owners of their intention to sit, his latest application was approved - with restrictions.
But the restrictions were too narrow.
So, en garde, Mr. Sidran. More paperwork, further appeals and permit applications are aimed at you and at Hoff's ever-patient city pen pal, Kirk Jones, manager of the Engineering Department's street use division.
Sometime, somewhere, John Hoff, a k a John Hoffman, will sit down. But he will not shut up.

Maybe one of these days the residents, politicians and media involved with North Minneapolis will realize that Johnny Northside has been a fanatic his entire life and that sooner or later, he is going to pull the same crap on them that he has done in Seattle and North Dakota.

Johnny Northside Takes Aim at Multiple Property Owners

Note: This picture is a parody and is not to be taken literally.

This post is in response to the post on the JNS site titled, Gregge Johnson Rental Licenses Revoked. Click here to read that post. Gregge Johnson Rental Licenses Revoked

Another post Johnny Northside had put on his blog was about a property owner who should be on the radar of city officials. Click here for that post. Paul Bertelson
The comments that were made on that post were interesting. Someone posed the question of, "what percentage of multi-property owners have some sort of code violation or 311 report or something against at least one of their properties?"
What appears to be going on in North Minneapolis is that the city takes aim at individuals who own multiple properties and pull their right to use them as a rental property. Essentially that either forces the owner to sell or they lose the houses to foreclosure as they obviously can't keep paying the mortgages when they lose the ability to collect rental income.

This is actually scary when the city has the power to strip a person of their right to make money by pulling their rental licenses and thus, forcing the house to become vacant. That is EXACTLY what the city has been complaining about and attributes the increase in crime to. This sounds like the city operates as a Dictator would. The problem is, we are talking about an area that is mostly one hundred years old, give or take a few years. Things DO wear out.

Now the city, mainly Johnny's pal Don Samuels, has Johnny Northside in his hip pocket to do his dirty work for him by putting all of this information about multiple property owners on the Internet for all to see. Johnny would be quick to point out that he has not accused anyone of anything as he has merely made the public aware of these individuals. In other words, John Hoff is outing people on his blog and causing them increased hardship and I would go so far as to say that he is personally affecting their right as an American to pursue the American Dream.

It may have started out as a dream for these unfortunate property owners but, thanks to people like Barb Johnson, Don Samuels and John Hoff... The dream is quickly turning into a nightmare.

TJ Waconia: Minneapolis City Council paid HOW MUCH???

The City Settled Again for HOW MUCH??

The City of Minneapolis held a big press conference to announce a civil suit by going after TJ Waconia and then announce that they won! They told the public that they gained control of TJ Waconia's properties but... OOPS! TJ Waconia no longer owned those properties. SunTrust Mortgage owned them and the city failed to notify them of their lawsuit that they claim to have won. OOPS!
Enter SunTrust Mortgage.
Judge rules in favor of SunTrust but, the city didn't bother to tell the public. Why should they? They didn't bother to tell SunTrust about the lawsuit.
Finally, the city settles with SunTrust. The city buys a bunch of properties owned by SunTrust at a whopping 10% discount!
So... The city screws up. The city ends up buying SunTrusts' bad debt and neglects to tell the public!

Oooh! This hurts all the way around!

The Minneapolis City Council had their case against TJ Waconia dismissed but, it sure cost the tax-payers... A LOT!

HOW much did that lawsuit and settlement (yes, settlement) cost the citizens of Minneapolis? We are still adding up all the "sale prices" the city paid SunTrust Mortgage in the wake of the TJ Waconia fiasco.
Looks like Don Samuels, Barbara Johnson and Mayor R.T. Rybak will have the voters to answer to this time! As R.T. said last year at the press conference that announced the city's suit against TJ Waconia (that was DISMISSED), "This time its personal."
You bet it is!

Now... HOW MUCH did the city pay SunTrust Mortgage to settle???
Stay tuned because, it is A LOT!

Johnny Northside Arrested for Marijuana?

I was contacted a week ago by a person with knowledge of John Hoff's past and they told me that he has been arrested in the past for possession of marijuana. They gave me the approximate year and where he was living at the time. According to my source, Johnny Northside was living in Seattle and the arrest came around 1998. I am having the King County records looked at to see if the records can be found and confirmed.
We already know Johns hero (Abbie Hoffman) was a  known cocaine user and the artist that drew the cover for his books (Ace Backwords) is a heavy user as well. Wouldn't it be a kick in the ass if his arrest can be confirmed?

I am still having the records investigated and I will update the blog when it is confirmed.

Trumped Up Lawsuit: City of Minneapolis, Folwell, McKinley & Webber-Camden VS. T.J. Waconia... DISMISSED

Bogus Lawsuit Against TJ Waconia: DISMISSED!

Don Samuels - Minneapolis City Council

As a defender of TJ Waconia and knowing first-hand that the entire case was nothing more than a cruel stunt by the Minneapolis City Council (Barbara Johnson and Don Samuels) to grandstand on the publicity that was focused on TJ Waconia. The civil suit made the headlines and even Mayor R.T. Rybak got his share of publicity from the deal. They claimed they won when they gained control of the 160 TJ Waconia properties and were hard at work with the houses. The only problem is, TJ Waconia no longer owned those properties. SunTrust Mortgage did and they were not happy about NOT BEING NOTIFIED of the BS lawsuit the city had filed against TJ Waconia. The city's attorneys never bothered to do a proper title search on those houses because, that would simply cost too much money. Instead, they utilized the out-dated Hennepin County website that had not updated the database to say that TJ Waconia no longer owned the houses.
How much money did THAT cost the taxpayers?

Any member of the media or candidates running for City Council or Mayor of Minneapolis, I offer you the following:
I have copies of the intervention SunTrust Mortgage filed against the City of Minneapolis which clearly details (.pdf file format) how the laywers for the Plaintiffs acted and proceeded without doing proper research and the result of which has cost the taxpayers of Minneapolis hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees.
I am happy to share all documents and files related to this case with you. All documents were sent to me by one of the principal owners of TJ Waconia.
You my contact me at: thedfwmentor@aol.com (Jim Watkins)
Note: Minneapolis StarTribune writer Steve Brandt was contacted about this and was also told about how Minneapolis City Council President, Barbara Johnson perjured herself at the federal sentencing hearing. Mr. Brandt declined to pursue this story. Because of this refusal to report such neglect and mis-use of funds by the city council, I will not release any information or documents to the Minneapolis StarTribune.

Rules are Rules and Laws are Laws... Not to John Hoff

'Ol Johnny Northside aka John Hoff has a long history of being in the middle of trouble. If you look at the various issues he has taken a stand against, you will see the pattern as to why he finds trouble.

Rules are rules and Laws are laws... Unless your name is John Hoff. John actually loves laws. He loves them so much that he went and got himself a degree in Law. Alright, thats getting off the main subject a little bit but, most citizens abide by the rules and laws and if they break any, they are held accountable (or so that is what is supposed to happen). When John Hoff violates a rule or a law, he fights the system to the bitter end in hopes of being able to avoid being held accountable.
How does he do that? Simple.... He exploits the rule or law as being stupid and goes on a public rant to convince others that the rule or law is dumb and therefore he should not be held accountable. A few examples would include, having a vehicle towed because, it was parked where it was not supposed to be. Hoff's answer: Start a blog and attack the issue from his perspective only on Towing Utopia.com. Never mind that he was wrong, the point is that he did not agree with the rule after finding out the hard way that it did not suit him.
Another example can be found in the Seattle Times. I have pasted a copy of the article below with the link to the story as well.

Some things never change with Johnny Northside. Only the cities where he has lived seem to change.

Seattle's Sidewalk Ordinance Upheld
SEATTLE - The state Court of Appeals upheld the constitutionality of Seattle's sidewalk ordinance yesterday.
Sarah McConahy, a formerly homeless youth, and John Hoff, an advocate for Seattle's homeless, were cited in 1994 for sitting on the sidewalk in the University District. McConahy was sitting with friends, eating and sometimes panhandling, and wearing a button that said: "Sitting is not a crime." Hoff was sitting reading a book with leaflets in his lap advertising a protest against the ordinance.

The two had separate municipal court trials. Each was found to have violated the sidewalk ordinance.
McConahy and Hoff joined together to appeal the decision, alleging that the ordinance violated the state constitution, including their rights to free speech and due process.
The 1994 ordinance bans sitting or lying on public sidewalks in commercial areas from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Johnny Northside with a "Crack Ho"

Johnny Northside posted a parody that showed a picture of Mayoral candidate, Al Flowers with a large smoking object hanging on his lips. I assume it is meant to be a marijuana cigarette but, Johnny stopped short of saying that.
Since John Hoff is known to be a hypocrite with so many things, such as his pen name "Hoffman" that is in homage to Abbie Hoffman of the Chicago 7 and a well-known cocaine addict. When I saw he posted the picture of Al Flowers smoking pot (and John claims his blog is fair while he rips the reputations of people running for public office against his new found political buddies), I decided to mirror the parody by offering a picture of John engaging with a "crack ho" as he likes to call them.
For anyone who might take offense to the picture... It is a P-A-R-O-D-Y so, Enjoy.

Twice as much Johnny Northside!

A new blog by the Anti-Johnny was launched yesterday, Northside Johnny. It will have the same information as the current blog but, it will have some content that won't be seen on this blog at times. It is hosted by Wordpress and it has become clear that the search engines pick up Wordpress blogs a lot more than Blogger sites. Perfect! Now there will be two sites to keep the public informed of John Hoff aka Johnny Northside!

Lennie Chism: The Other Side to the Story

As promised, below you will find five pictures that are screen shots of the PDF file police report that was filed by the Minnetonka PD. They responded to a dispute call between Lennie Chism and Monika Shannon. This post covers the portion of the report with what Miss Shannon told the police.

Monika Shannon
"Never under-estimate the power of a pissed off woman who thinks she is right"
-Jim Watkins

Note how she claims to have been in different places in and around the car... The car that supposedly ran over her.
See for yourself.... (click on each picture to view full-size)






Just my $0.02 cents but, I am guessing that the reason she was driving so slowly was because, she knew the police had been called and wanted to make sure they were able to find her before they got on the highway.
The entire scene had been carefully planned before Lennie Chism showed up and it would appear that she intended to have him arrested.

Check back soon for Lennie Chism's statement to the police.

There Are Two Sides To Every Story

For those of you that read the National Enquirer-esq craziness at http://www.johnnynorthside.com/, it would appear that Lennie Chism is getting what he deserves from John Hoff...It would appear.

Of course, even the worst critics are reasonable enough to know that there are Two Sides To Every Story and from the limited information I have received as of today, it definitely looks like there is a clear-cut "other" side to the story.

The MisAdventures of Johnny Northside will soon be posting information (that can and will be documented as fact) about the Lennie Chism story that will give the public the chance to see the other side of the story.
One fact that really needs to be revealed immediately is the marital status of Lennie Chism. Johnny Northside portrayed Mr. Chism to be a cheating husband. In fact, he made sure everyone knew Mr. Chism is currently married.
The other side to that story, is that John Hoff rushed to get the info online before researching his opinion. Had he researched Mr. Chism's marital status, he would have discovered that Lennie Chism has been SEPARATED from his wife for nearly.... FIFTEEN YEARS!
In case you misread the last sentence..... Lennie Chism has been separated (meaning NOT together) for almost 15 years.

More to come.....

Johnny Northside's Public Contact Information

As long as information is available to the public, there is nothing wrong with letting others know... Right?

John Hoff stands behind his safety blanket known as First Amendment rights and acts as though he is doing a public service. Some of his "intentional flaming" may actually be "legal" but, I think the majority of the people who are familiar with his blog would agree... His public flaming is borderline cruel and certainly self-serving and un-ethical. John went to law school though. Surely there was a class on ethics, right? Maybe John felt there was no need to attend that class.

Since John is on the Hawthorn board, he is a public servant (Sorry, its hard not to laugh at that one) so, I was able to find his home address online, just in case any area residents wanted to drop him a letter. Maybe they would prefer to call him on his cell phone since that is also public information (lots more where out there, John).
His number was posted on the University of Minnesota website. To view the public information on John Hoff, click HERE

John's address was posted online by the City of Appleton, Minnesota. Want to know why? Remember all the bashing John has dished out to people for things like, not paying a water bill and things like that? Well, Johnny Northside apparently doesn't like to cut grass on his property in Appleton (Jill Clark & Jerry Moore: Johnny does have assets after all) because, the city slapped a judgement on him for a delinquent mowing bill in the amount of $383.00 and posted his home address in north Minneapolis. In case you were wondering, he has yet to pay for the judgement. Wait until you see how much his girlfriend owes on her two judgements!

To view the PDF file online, click HERE
(Note: Scroll down to the 5th paragraph on page 2)
To save time for the readers, I took the liberty of taking a screen shot of the page...

John Hoff insists all of this is only me trying to get sympathy for my friend but, that isn't correct. All of this is to show the public what a phony he is and that he is guilty of damn near everything he accuses others of doing (see screen shot above).

Johhny Northside: Not Exactly Accurate (Again)

The following was copied from Johnnynorthside.com...
There will be some kind of future post about this, but behind the scenes right now Jim Watkins--self proclaimed best friend of T.J. Waconia fraudster Thomas Balko--has been trying to stir up sympathy for his incarcerated friend. Since the MPLS Mirror printed Jim Watkins' other dribble about TJ Waconia, it wouldn't surprise me if the contact is ongoing.
I'm troubled by the fact the mug shots for a number of mortgage fraudsters--Thomas Balko, Donald Walthall, Marlon Pratt, Larry Maxwell--aren't appearing on the Department of Corrections website. We need to see what these jailbirds look like and know their whereabouts. I sent an email to DOC but haven't heard back.
It looks like John is making good on his threat to go after me in public. That conversation was recorded. Listen to it HERE.
To respond to his comments... Thanks for reminding me, John. To read the full article that sheds light on the mistakes made by the Minneapolis City Council, click HERE

As for the mugshots and their whereabouts... There is a good reason he can't find them and I find it very funny that he can't figure out why. Perhaps if he wasn't an "800 pound Gorilla" with an equal mental capacity, he would have discovered why he has led himself on a pointless mission.
I am happy to announce that Johnny has convinced me how wonderful public information can be. My next post will include a few facts about Johnny that is available to anyone online!

Photo from Johnnynorthside.com

Northside activist John Hoff aka Johnny Northside, has offended people and talked "trash" everywhere he has been. Recent posts have offered insight into his past and those past antics strongly suggest what is to come in north Minneapolis.
Click on the link at the end of this post to read an interview the Seattle Times published with John Hoff's first publisher, Michael Hoy of Loompanics in 1999.
Hoy mentioned the novel Hoff had written (unknown if it was actually published) and said,
"Like many first novels, it is partly autobiographical. Amid a plot about war, romance, politics and "electoral sabotage"
The author of the interview Richard Seven, had this to say about John Hoffman (Hoff is his legal name):
Hoffman, who lives in a University District apartment, is an activist for the homeless and other grassroots causes and uses his rummaging skills to forage through public records and take on city hall.
People ask me why I keep looking for info on John Hoff and I simply tell them to read some of the stuff I have found on him. The majority of them can't believe that Johnny Northside is the same person and they wonder how long it will take until he does the same thing in north Minneapolis.

Johnny Northside: Looking to Take Over No-Mi?

John Hoff said in the recording posted two days ago that he is "Dominant" over me and its more than a power trip or a big ego. I wonder if the Minneapolis Police Department knows about what he did in Seattle? 'Ol Johnny Northside did what he does best in Seattle... He went after the Seattle PD's Internal Affairs Division.
It is ironic that he said recently that he "needs" the 4th Precinct to look after him yet, he took it upon himself to look after the Seattle Police Department in his quest for power.
My vote says that John has his sights set on Minneapolis and becoming a City Council member. Think I am crazy? In an interview with the Seattle Weekly, he said the following about his political rise in North Dakota...
"I could show any Seattle activist how to take this place over," he says. "It's blood in the streets, it's headlines every day. I am the City Council now, I have the power. Is that crazy?"

John's problem is he has left a trail of pissed off people behind him everywhere he has been. Those people haven't forgotten about him nor have they forgiven him for the way he bullied them around.
LEARN from history, folks! Do you honestly think that John has really changed? North Minneapolis is where he wants to take over... At least in his mind. Think I am crazy? Read the entire article from the Seattle Weekly and connect the dots.

Johnny Northside Recorded!

On Monday, September 21, 2009... The Anti-Johnny called John Hoff as he had requested via text message. Johnny Northside had been informed that the Anti-Johnny had contacted Lennie Chism with information about the Minneapolis City Council (Don Samuels and Barbara Johnson) and Johnny Northside that could be of help to his campaign.

While the call lasted nearly 40 minutes, the following 15 minute audio clip was taken out and copied here.
What you will hear is funny, sad, disturbing and... You just need to hear it for yourself. Johnny Northside refers to himself as the "800 pound gorilla" and he voices his rather crude opinions of Lennie Chism, www.mplsmirror.com, Al Flowers, other city council candidates and at one point in the recording, Johnny confirms he supports DFL candidate Don Samuels, even though he is a member of the Green Party.
Johnny also claims that he is a "player" in the north Minneapolis political scene. Here is hoping that attorney Jill Clark hears this audio clip as it might help with the lawsuit she filed for Jerry Moore.

To listen to the 15-minute clip from the phone call, click below.

The People Vs. Johnny Northside - You Decide

One thing I have learned about myself over the past three years is that I will go out of my way to help and stand by a friend. I knew that in doing so, the attack dogs would be sent after me and they have. The biggest of those attack dogs has actually turned out to be a gorilla. An "800 Pound Gorilla" to be exact.

My encounters with the 800 pound gorilla was mostly in defense of my friend. When the events surrounding my friend came to a close, I kept an eye on the 800PG (Pound Gorilla) and saw that it went about attacking others as it had with me, using tactics such as bullying, force and threats, etc..

This 800PG has a goal... A Vision and, a history of using Mafia-like tactics to get what it wants and God help you if you dare cross this 800PG!

Another thing I have learned in the past three years is how to C.Y.A.

In this world we live in, there are simply too many people who will lie, cheat and go to extremes to either get themselves out of trouble or to get someone else in trouble. I was forced to stand by and watch as my friend was crucified by the media, individuals, politicians and.... An 800 Pound Gorilla!

It didn't take me long to realize that it would be a no-win situation every time I went against the 800PG due to the fact that it didn't play by the rules. What is worse is the 800PG broke the rules and made new ones up as it continued on its quest for "Dominance."

C.Y.A. folks.

Always, always COVER YOUR ASS! You never know when you might need proof that an 800 Pound Gorilla named John Hoff, will attack you. CYA for me means recording phone calls, taking screen shots of web sites to document information before it is deleted, video recording encounters and saving emails are all things that I have done in order to protect myself and warn others about this savage... Monkey. These things will be posted here for the public to decide for themselves.

I am no expert on Primates but, I have taken note of a few of their characteristics. The first is obvious. Gorillas have incredible physical strength. Others are that they are territorial and they appear to have an attitude of "open up a can of whoop-ass, then we can talk."

The one that stands out in my mind is the fact that while they are a force that are not to be taken lightly, they are after all, a primate. A gorilla. A Monkey and they are not the smartest animals on the face of the earth. At least not when compared to humans. The 800 Pound Gorilla has been tearing through people on its quest to be Johnny Northside while I have been covering my ass, waiting for the time to let the people know that a gorilla lurks in N Minneapolis. The good news is that common sense and logical thinking (along with CYA) are the tools that are needed to cast this monkey out of its territory where it will need to find another place to be its stomping ground. North Dakota and Seattle has already dealt with this gorilla so, it won't be going to either of those places.

This post marks the first of many to come in my quest. My quest to offer the public honest proof of the fact that there is a brutal, viscous 800 Pound Gorilla on the rampage in North Minneapolis and it is disguised as a fellow named John Hoff, otherwise known as Johnny Northside.

We need to have some fun along the way as well. So, I have some stuff that will poke fun at the monkey for our entertainment.

Johnny Northside: Fair and Un-Biased? Hardly

Johnny Northside has been blogging away with defending city council member Don Samuels while claiming to be fair and un-biased.
In addition to John being on a "first name basis" with city inspectors, it's no wonder why he goes out of his way to buddy up to certain city and neighborhood leaders.
John Hoff is a member of Facebook.com and the following individuals have approved John to be added to their "Friends" list on the site:

Bryan Thao Worra - Hawthorne Community
Jeff Skrenes - Hawthorne Housing Director
Don Samuels- Minneapolis City Council Member
And let's not forget...
R.T. Rybak - Mayor, City of Minneapolis

I doubt you will see Johnny Northside saying anything negative about Don Samuels since he is "friends" with him. Oh, the Johnny Northside Blog reports on events that he claims are "newsworthy." Yeah, right.

For your entertainment, read about John and his experience as a city council member in North Dakota. It didn't go too well.
Note the quote where he said, "I am the city council now." Sound familiar?

Anti-Johnny is Back in the House!

Lets get ready to.... EXPOSE!
Ok folks, it has been a while since I have posted on this blog mainly because, I really don't care to devote that much time to John Hoff.
Some new twists have begun to emerge in North Minneapolis lately and John Hoff has decided to go after the Minneapolis Mirror and Al Flowers. How nice. Actually, how stupid.
Thanks to Johnny Northsides' coverage of the Jordan neighborhood takeover, it has uncovered many names of people who are able to help with the big picture.
'Ol John Hoff... You really should read his book (pictured). Want to know something really funny? If you read an article from the MN Daily, John Hoff aka Johnny Northside commented where he got his pen name of , Hoffman.
"I have been known to become "John Hoffman," in homage to Abbie Hoffman of the Chicago 7." Hoff.said.
So, Johnny Northside blogs about how he hates all the druggies and crack heads in North Minneapolis but, he pays homage to a world famous drug user, Abbie Hoffman. In fact, he used his last name for both of his books about, Dumpster Diving.
Well, lets get this show going!
