    How can I get these spam blogs removed or disabled ...

    http://www.ceforcalifornia.com/

    They have harmful links pointing in to our site and there is no way to get in touch of the owner of the blog (because it is not a "real" blog).

    All they do is copy a paragraph from somewhere on the web and add a text link at the bottom of each post. This is strictly for SEO intent, in an attempt game the system to increase a sites rankings in the search engines.

    The above examples are running wordpress, but registered through godaddy. Is there anything I can do or anything wordpress can do to have the sites removed or disabled?

    wordpress.org distributes and documents the WordPress application but has no connection with any site running that software. You need to contact the site owners in each case and that's not something we can help you with.

    Right, but there is no contact info for the site owners, so that is not possible. So, basically there is nothing I can do...

    You may be able to contact the domain owners via their domain registration records but there's absolutely nothing we can do to help here.
