I still remember the 2011 CRA Convention fight and being accused of selling CRA endorsements. That issue was the central issue of that fight.

I never sold a CRA endorsement, or attempted to. I did get paid by consultants / campaigns many times to influence outcomes in the course of everything else I was doing. That is a very different thing as I never guaranteed or promised an outcome, manipulated CRA Records, Delegates, etc in order to win an endorsement.

The CRA currently has $51k in the bank. 38K of it I raised by selling sponsorships and soliciting donations. This was another thing the people that expelled me roundly criticized – perhaps I should have pocketed the money and done what has been the time-honored tradition of CRA versus trying to raise operating captial for the organization.

The mentality and the reputation of the CRA is well earned. The few real groups they have are made up of the fringes of politics. They had a 9-11 Truther Table at the most recent CRA Convention. Thomas N Hudson never met a check he would not take. When I participated in staging CRA Conventions, I turned down similar would be vendors.

Given that the CRA attracts people like this, it is a reasonable question to ask, “why wouldn’t a group made up of people that can’t function in the real would fight amongst itself all the time?”

Karen England, a woman I have lit up many times on this Blog was running for CRA President in 2011. Her psychotic rants and accusations are still parroted today by some. Late every October, I celebrate “FBI” day in honor of her straight-faced allegation at the 1/2011 Placer GOP Cent Com Organizing meeting that the FBI was investigating the Placer GOP. What was at stake in 2011 was control of the lucrative endorsement mill known as CRA. She lied, multiple times in an attempt to gain political advantage and had a decent group of dupes. Many have recovered from their brainwashing at the hands of Karen England, but those still can’t help but light a torch have found a home in CRA.

I personally wanted to see the CRA be a group for Real Conservative Activists. I had seen the fraud in front of my face for years and was very much personally frustrated to see the Placer CRA, a real unit of CRA with real members getting screwed by fake units controlled by political consultants and staff. The fake units got as much weight in an endorsement as the real ones.

In 2007, the Mitt Romney for President Campaign in an effort run by Mike Schroeder, Brandon Powers, Scott Voigts, David Reade and others created a string of 25 fake CRA Units in order to produce convention delegates to engineer a CRA endorsement of Mitt Romney. I remember that convention well. I remember voting to endorse Mitt Romney on the second ballot. I did not know at the time that 75 of the 148 votes Romney got were produced by this operation.

With a fresh batch of 25 bogus CRA Units, a series of events occurred that forced the internal corruption of the CRA to the forefront. At that time, I had no real idea that people like Steve Frank, Mike Spence, Jon Fleischman, and a couple of other allies at the time (whose names escape me) were all profiting (or had profited) personally (directly or otherwise) from manipulation by fraud or straight up rigged fabrication of CRA endorsements.

I’ve had political consultants tell me they did business with both Jon Fleischman and Mike Spence (both former CRA Presidents). I served under several CRA Presidents and I can tell you with certainty that neither John Briscoe nor Ken Mettler participated in leveraging CRA. I can’t say that about any of the others I served with.

David Stafford Reade and Mark Spannagel – both current Chiefs of Staff for Current Republican officeholders were expelled from CRA for fraud. As it turns out, they got screwed. They did nothing different than several of the people that voted to expel them. What they did was wrong, but getting disciplined and publicly railed by people doing the exact same thing was and is absurd.

Scott Voigts, A man I consider a friend today got expelled for fraud. He got screwed, see above.

In retrospect, I get why a bunch of them sued the CRA. I’d have done the same damn thing given that my 20/20 hindsight is clear on this.

Everyone on the current CRA board should be nervous about lawsuits. Why would someone care about getting banned from CRA for suing the organization at this point? Thomas N Hudson, the current President of the CRA was a vociferous opponent of taking out Directors and Officers Insurance for the group as he, get this, argued that it would INCREASE the chances the CRA would get sued. Guess what, enough board members bought that argument that they voted the idea down. This is the mentality of the CRA today. Those sitting on the CRA board are uninsured and will have to come out of pocket should the $51k in the CRA’s Treasury get exhausted in the next lawsuit.

Of all the people expelled from CRA in my lifetime, I do believe that only Karen England and Tim LeFever deserved their expulsions. It is clear to me that they wanted to take CRA to the next level for their commercial enterprise. The problem is that my side of that fight had people like Steve Frank, Tom Hudson and other on it that were scarcely different than those that lost and later got expelled. Many times over the years, I acted on the advice of Steve Frank and Thomas N Hudson without question, speaking of dumb things to do…

In retrospect, (to cite a recent example of a CRA lynching), I don’t think Steve Sarkis deserved much more than a 1 year suspension or perhaps just a prohibition from serving on leadership for what he did in Anaheim. That said, the morally corrupt Thomas N Hudson believes that Sarkis did nothing wrong and has raged on multiple people over it, (even though Sarkis was caught with falsified membership records, etc. over a three year period) apparently defending the time-honored practice of CRA Fraud.

Perhaps Hudson’s rage over what happened to Sarkis, is because Mr. Sarkis bad behavior mirrored his own bad behavior within CRA? If Sarkis got screwed so badly, Hudson should lead the fight to reinstate him. Thomas N Hudson needs to man up instead of raging on people like a bully.

Trying to reform the CRA has proven to be a fool’s errand. The bathroom boys and narcissists did George and I a huge favor by expelling us in the manner we did. We had proof of even more fraud. Those caught had to gaslight us and employ the pigpen strategy of writing specious, lengthy manifestos (that included bringing in our disdain for some so-called conservative officeholders in to the matrix amongst other things) to cover for their bad behavior when they expelled us.

The unbelievable truth is that whole thing was ignited by us sending in a Spam complaint against an email sent out by Mark Gardner in defiance of the then President John Briscoe’s wishes. From there, the leper colony erupted. Gardner has since announced he has moved to Nevada. Two of the other leaders of the effort to expel us moved to Florida. A fourth board member who voted to expel us moved to Florida. 17 of the 30 votes to expel us were appointed the day of the lynching to the CRA Board by Thomas N Hudson. Many are not on the CRA’s board anymore.

Some people have said that George and My expulsion from CRA was payback or “what comes around”. The smart people who did not have their ego in a wad or who were not trying to avoid conflict saw it as a takeover for Thomas N Hudson and his merry band of Bathroom Boys (many of whom don’t really like Hudson all that much).

Now that Thomas N Hudson is in “control” of the CRA and according to my belief is attempting to leverage it, the organization is basically in a free fall. Its’ membership is about half of what it was when I was expelled and it is continuing to get decimated despite whatever spin may be coming out of the ministry of information. Hudson has built his own reputation, the CRA has its’ own reputation. George and I were freed from the baggage and poor reflection of the CRA’s reputation on ourselves by their own stupidity when they expelled us.

Anyone seeking a CRA endorsement should adhere to the old adage, let the buyer beware. It is similar to willingly injecting bacteria in to your campaign.

P.S. Much of the proof of the contents of this blog is from personal experience, anecdotal stories and the like as most political types try to minimize their email/paper trail. The most common refrain when I blog about stuff is for those affected to call me a liar. Let em. They know what they did. The accounts of this post are things I believe to be true.

Obama set the bar low. Economists everywhere knew that a major part of any smart person’s agenda would be to gut what Obama did. Donald Trump has been using a provision in the law only used once before to override regulations shoved down our throats by un-elected political appointees.

4 more Obama Era Regulations went up in smoke with congressional action. The mainstream media is lying as they deceptively make it look like these are all executive orders.

Two department of education mandates effectively trashing charter schools and giving the government power were trashed. A land use regulation giving the incompetent fools at the BLM dictatorial power over land-use was trashed and the world famous Obama “Blacklisting” rule was trashed.

Many of the Obama Era Regulations attacking the Coal and Oil Industry have been overturned by congress, but the latest executive order by Trump effectively guts what Obama did unilaterally. The Coal and Oil industry in America will explode and once again evil energy companies will be able to lease federal lands amongst other things.

In what should be the first of many Obama Era Internet Rules, a so-called Privacy Regulation that favored Obama Donors like Google and Facebook over Cable Carriers was repealed.

TRADE / INFASTRUCTURE:

Trump signs two executive orders to jump-start the Trade Agenda:

The first executive order aims to ensure that duties are fully collected when imposed on foreign importers who cheat.

“They are cheaters,” the president said forcefully.

The second order directs Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and the U.S. Trade Representative to compile a report within 90 days to identify a broad range of trade abuses, country by country and product by product.

The next thing you know, Trump is meeting with China, the number one abuser of our trade policy. Trump’s policies have had an immediate and dramatic effect on our trade deficit with China.

In February, the trade deficit to China fell by a record amount and American exports increased for a thrid straight month, according to ABC News.

The deficit fell to $43.6 billion, 9.6 percent below January’s deficit of $48.2 billion, while imports on Chinese goods fell by $8.6 billion.  The overall trade deficit with China narrowed in February to $23 billion, 26.6 percent below the January total.

National Trades Unions are feeling the love for the President. They stood and applauded him several times when he appeared at their convention.

Regarding his infrastructure plan take a look at this:

Speaking at a town hall in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, President Donald Trump stated that in order for his $1 trillion infrastructure to succeed, he plans on cutting regulations preventing states speedily enacting new building projects.

After pointing to a chart illustrating the legislative process states must undergo prior to beginning highway construction projects, POTUS added “it can take anywhere between 10, if you’re really good, 10 years to 20 years, and then they vote and you lose.”

OBAMACARE REPEAL AND REPLACE:

GASP! Trump had golf with Rand Paul, the favorite of Republican-Hating “Libertarian” liberals everywhere. Those cloaking themselves in the Constitution to dislike conservatives should now be in a state of confusion as their imam is now involved in the AHCA effort. (you should see social media, trump hating “liberty Republicans” are in a state of fugue)

VP Pence went straight to the Freedom Caucus – the hard right group that was “credited” for derailing the first attempt to deal with Obamacare – with a series of compromises to get a deal done.

Meantime, after Anthem’s national announcement of withdrawing from Obamacare exchanges, the State of Iowa is now down to two exchange carriers with the withdrawal of two more. Remember, you can only get free —- through an exchange plan. You can’t get it if you buy from a carrier directly. This is why Obamacare is collapsing, the plans with free federal welfare attached to them are collapsing.

Speaking of Collapsing – ISIS is getting hammered. IT almost makes you think Obama wanted them in place, doesn’t it. Two months in to Trump admin and ISIS is getting pushed out of most of its’ key areas. This is an excellent report on the Trump Strategy to deal with ISIS.

Meantime – Trump met with Egyptian President Sisi. Sisi’s government threw out the Obama-backed Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt. Sisi is also friendly to Israel.

And, in Syria, there was a chemical weapon attack leaving over 100 dead. This was the worst such incident in years. Trump rightfully laid it at the feet of Obama’s weakness.

This Blogger recently became aware of a secret meeting held in Orange County related to trying to shore up Orange County in an attempt to forestall the free-falling Republican Registration and the electoral disaster in 2016. Hitlary won Orange County by 8.5% (Trump won my home county by 14, BTW)

Ling Ling Chang lost her State Senate race. John Newman responded by voting yes on the largest tax increase in State History.

Young Kim lost her Assembly Seat. Sharon Quirk-Silva repaid the voters of Orange County by walking out of her hospital room to the floor of the Assembly to cast her yes vote (after campaigning to defend Prop 13).

Dana Rohrabacher is said to be vulnerable.

Stephen Choi is said to be vulnerable.

Darrell Issa is indeed Vulnerable.

Janet Nguyen holds a dem-leaning State Senate Seat.

Ed Royce may be Vulnerable as the two above losses for the GOP occurred in districts that underlie his Congressional seat.

Mimi Walters has also made the DCCC candidate Abortion list for 2018.

This leaves the GOP with a handful of safe seats in Orange County. While Senator John Moorlach has stepped up his game raising more money than he ever has before (and giving it to other Republicans), still others in safe seats like Matthew Harper struggle to raise enough money to buy groceries. Pat Bates and Bill Brough are playing key roles, while Travis Allen is trying to make noise on the State Stage. Does this mean Travis is getting ready to leave the Assembly to run for higher office, or is he trying to build the team?

I wish I could say news of this meeting was causing me great feelings of hope and joy. But, my response was more sadness and questions as I’ve seen the disaster of 2016 in the making for 10+years.

Why did it take until now for members of Congress from Orange County to engage at this level?

The main thrust of this meeting was getting money IN to California to run voter registration and grassroots organizing. This is an apparent short-term response to the democrat propaganda publication known as the Hill bragging that a top Dem operative has been sent to Orange County to oversee attacking 6-8 Republicans in CA, holding 2 Nevada seats and attacking 2 Republicans in Washington State. I wish him luck as apparently the dems still think they can “Get Trump”.

Why did it take until now for members of Congress from Orange County to engage at this level?

For years, I’ve despaired of a generation of Republican Partisan Electeds who could care less about the political disaster around them as long as their own district was safe and their new run for office was on track. The timing of this meeting with the circumstances surrounding it causes me to ask the obvious question, are they doing it because of their own self interest? Or, has it finally gotten that bad that they have to act?

Then there is the OC GOP itself. There is a desperate need for a cultural change. Separate my disdain for a few individual members and take a look from 30,000 feet. Something broke 20 years ago. This is not Fred Whitaker’s Fault, this is a cultural issue. Has the current leadership of the OC GOP taken a good thorough look at what broke? Can they fix it? Do they have a plan? Has anyone been honest with themselves long enough to allow their ego to accept the reality of the current situation? <<< This is a serious question, not some sort of blogger slam.

I’ve been told by friends in Orange County that they do have a plan. This is good. How do they fund it? What are they going to do and where? Are they going to do something different with it?

Senator John Moorlach has demonstrated that an old dog can learn new tricks as he has transformed himself in to a donor. Will others follow that lead? Can others learn new stripes?

I was told that there was a small program worth about $500k that did targeted voter registration in 2016. I can only imagine how much worse it would have been without that.

So Mimi Walters, Ed Royce and others are engaging now that they are threatened. (This is my opinion and I am open to being challenged with facts that suggest otherwise) In California, we will take it. We will take any activity by anyone regardless of motive as we need to stop the bleeding that has our registration number down below 26% statewide.

Dear OC GOP – the ball is in your court. If there is going to be wads of money spent, please make a plan and identify where lost ground can be regained. Please see if you can find angry NPP voters that left the GOP and minister to them. Please find the #nevertrumper folks that I believe contributed to the margin in 2016 and see if they are responding to the facts about what Trump is doing. Don’t read the Hill and other publications that say Trump is unpopular, the election proved people lie to pollsters. If the OCGOP leads, as in breaks the set-in insular culture of the last 20 years, the results will become self-evident at the ballot box.

The good news? I do believe that the OCGOP has it within them to repair the damage and get back on a winning streak. Will they admit fault where necessary, ask and answer the hard questions and then finish the job with the hard work necessary?

Most major California Newspapers will not write about internal polls, but Politico will. The most recent installment of that is the Antonio Villaraigosa Poll designed to make him look like a better challenger to Gavin Newsome.

There was a poll two weeks ago that has Gavin anytowsome Newsome at 28, John Cox at 18 and Antonio Suave at 11. Read more about John Cox here.

Enter Politico:

By now, the early polling in the 2018 gubernatorial race is fairly consistent: Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is out in front, followed by a Republican (John Cox or, if he runs, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer), then every other Democrat in the race or mulling it. For former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the goal is to persuade potential donors and party activists that he is a strong No. 3.

His campaign last week released an internal poll by The Feldman Group, Inc., that puts Villaraigosa’s support at 20 percent — behind both Newsom (26 percent) and Cox (22 percent). That’s a tighter margin than in public polls (IGS last week had Villaraigosa at 11 percent). But Villaraigosa is betting on a different turnout model in the primary. The campaign is counting on the possibility that Latino voters who have not turned out in previous gubernatorial primaries will turn out in 2018, motivated in part by President Donald Trump.

So, Villaraigosa had to inflate latino turnout in order to get a better result for himself. Just how much? His own polling summary shows that they went fishing for latino voters an inflated them to 23% of the electorate in a non-Presidential year election by looking for people that may have voted once in the last 4 elections, or something like that.

The overall sample was not released, calling the whole summary in to question.

It has the usual pablum about how much people hate trump and how much Californians want more social justice (you know, like 52 Billion dollar tax increases, broken dams and the like).

What all polls lack mention of is the following: If John Cox is the only Republican in the running, he makes the Top Two. If another credible Republican files, they might as well endorse Antonio Villariagosa. Antonio Suave own pol lhas proven, the only way Antonio can get in the runoff is if he takes Gavin anytwosome Newsome down a couple notches and there is one Strong Republican on the ballot. Cox has dropped a million dollars in to his campaign on his way to still more.

It is also very interesting that none of the dems are polling the sanctuary state, the $52 Billion Dollar Tax Increase and any of the other extreme left wing issues on the floor of the State Legislature today. Actually, it is not.

If the populous in general gets the least bit informed of what the democrats did to them with their supermajority, Gavin Newsome will be returned to his Mansion in Marin County in pieces, as would Antoino Suave to his Mansion in Central LA.

Lastly, Antonio Suave says that the math dictates that you need to get to 33% in order to make the runoff. That in and of itself should have told him NOT to release this internal poll. 26 is a lot closer to 33 than 20 is, especially when there are all kinds of pigs running to the political buffet table. With Cox staked to 22% of the vote in a turnout environment over sampled with minorities, the chances of a D vs D runoff are not as good as pundits would expect.

If John Cox is the only funded, credible Republican that files, we have a great chance to break the top-two curse and actually be able to have a real contest of values in the fall of 2018. I hope this is not lost on the rest of the interested parties within the CAGOP.

Many have expressed concerns over the democrats’ obstruction of Trump’s agenda. They are on tilt, quite simply they had deluded themselves in to believing Hillary Clinton was going to win.

As we know now, the Obama administration started spying on Trump and his associates in 2015 and likely intensified it once he entered the Presidential Race. Then, they added even more levels chasing the “Russia did it” Ghost.

It turns out that the infamous Susan Rice of the Benghazi Video fame was one of the leaders of the efforts to smear the Trump team and to use gathered spying data to try to delegitimize Trump. The felony is not the investigation, it is the leaking to the press. Considering that Rice is married to the former executive producer of ABC, who still works a contractor doing shows like 20/20 and 60 minutes, well it does not take much to connect the dots.

Rice ordered spreadsheets of all Trump and Trump team member calls to be made. Why?

The Wall Street Journal is now reporting that Rice was not alone. Was the Gaslighting of Trump with the Russia did it lie ordered by Obama himself?

I am not a Rush Limbaugh fan at all, but this piece Rush did is spot on, The real scandal is Obama weaponizing the intelligence services to be used against Trump.

While this is going on – Democrats are using the Russia did it lie as an excuse to delay and stymie nominations needing congressional approval. Trump has now fallen behind Obama’s pace.

By the time many of you read this post, Congress will have been forced to at least consider the nuclear option of ending the filibuster of a Supreme Court Nominee. If that filibuster is actually carried out, it would be a historic first.

RESPECT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT – CRIME VICTIMS, in a decided reversal of the Obama tactics of blame the police division a couple key things are emerging.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions who was crucified by the media and the democrats is going straight after Obama-Era Police “Reforms” designed to coddle criminals in the name of race-baiting.

In a memo released on Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered a review of the “police reform” agreements the Obama Justice Department imposed on several police departments nationwide — what the Washington Post describes as “a key legacy of the Obama administration.” The purpose of the review, explained Sessions, was to ensure that the agreements do not undermine the Trump administration’s priorities, including protecting the safety and civil rights of the public, promoting officer safety and morale, and allowing local departments to do their job without unnecessary federal meddling.

Donald Trump declared a Nation week of Remembrance for Crime Victims. (A forgotten class by the American Left) Victims of Crime turn much more conservative after their ordeal, that is a proven fact. Perhaps this is why the left never talks about Crime Victims, focusing instead on registering felons to vote.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION / “REFUGEE” INVASION:

More than 8,000 new Refugees have taken advantage of Obama Appointed Judge’s political decisions to issue restraining orders against Trump’s attempts to get a handle on who’s coming.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions goes straight after Sanctuary Cities.

Illegal immigration is plummeting since Donald Trump got elected. Remember – this is a top 3 reason why the left hate Trump. Illegal and Mass immigration are the number 1 recruiting tool for new democrats.

Secretary John Kelly said the steep decline in arrests is “no accident” and credited President Donald Trump’s approach to illegal immigration…

In his testimony for the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Kelly said fewer than 12,500 people were caught crossing the border illegally last [in March]. That compares with more than 43,000 in December.

Kelly told lawmakers that the number of [Central American] families and children traveling alone — groups that accounted for hundreds of thousands of illegal border crossers in recent years — also declined steeply. Last month fewer than 1,000 children were caught at the border and fewer than 1,100 people traveling as families were found. In recent years most of the families and children traveling alone have been from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

Read more here on the AP (of all sources) reporting on this.

Tune in for Part 8 later today.

If you follow California Politics, the Sacramento Bee has been on a rampage against the Board of Equalization.  When they are not openly displaying their hatred of Christians attacking local charities with slanted, biased stories, the Bee has been writing legitimate stories blasting the board for their practices of using wads of taxpayer money to benefit individual members.

Thomas N Hudson works for the Board of Equalization.

CRA VP Bill Cardoza works for the feckless Ted Gaines. So does Damian Fussell, the CRA’s resident liberal. Cardoza used to work for the BOE before going over to Ted Gaines’ State Senate shop. AS reported on this blog, the serial office-shopper Ted Gaines was purchasing annoying slate mail cards for his next campaign even before his election to his final term in the State Senate was complete! Ted Gaines is running for Board of Equalization.

I’ve seen photos from CRA meetings and conventions suggesting several other BOE Employees are active in CRA. Given that your intrepid blogger has exposed the CRA’s real membership to be no more than 700 people statewide (likely closer to 600), even 5 BOE (or prospective BOE) staffers on their rolls is extremely disproportionate. Further, given that 2 of those are senior officers in the CRA, you have to take pause.

The CRA endorsed Stephen Baird over Ted Gaines in 2016, as Gaines has been hostile to the State of Jefferson movement.

Why was Ted Gaines front and center at the just concluded CRA Convention? He wants something. And, you’d have to be brain dead to think that Thomas N Hudson, Bill Cardoza and others did not and do not have a serious interest in the outcome of that election next year. (Note, I will be supporting (Fill in the name of Republican candidate here) over Ted Gaines in 2018)

Thomas N Hudson rips off the taxpayers for $117K + another $47K in bloated benefits as of 2015. I am not sure how much his undeserved raise in 2016 was, but if it tracked past years, it would put his total package in 2016 at around $175K. How many of you reading this blog make $175k a year? How many of you would love to see this guy crying poor to the judge in his divorce case with said salary?

Trainwreck Teddy represents Thomas N Hudson’s next paycheck. He also represents the next paycheck for the others I mentioned previously.

The BOE was nuked by the State Auditor’s office for their lax enforcement of actually doing state work on state time:

Some employees are not performing the revenue-generating tasks they have been assigned, according to the audit, calling into question the agency’s budget requests and skirting the law.

“Certain board member practices have intervened in administrative activities and created inconsistencies in operations, breakdowns in centralized processes and in certain instances result in activities contrary to state law and budgetary and legislative directives,” the audit says.

No kidding. Have you ever gotten a call at 2 in the afternoon or a 6 page email at 10AM from Hudson in the middle of the week? I am sure Trainwreck Teddy will be a great boss to work for to continue the time-honored 6 figure salary with fringe benefits for optional work. When I type blogs and screw around on Facebook in the middle of the day, I am not selling insurance. Maybe the times when I am doing paid political work for a candidate merit that activity, but it always comes at a price to my insurance business.

In the case of Hudson, we are paying that price. In the case of Cardoza and others, it is simply the time-honored practice of pimping the CRA to a candidate in order to benefit one’s self. The CRA expelled several people for doing that, including Jim Nielsen and Doug LaMalfa’s current chiefs of staff. They got screwed. They were doing nothing different than those that helped expel them.

While Hudson is a “Tenured Civil Servant” who will keep a job regardless of member, should someone not named Ted Gaines get elected to that seat, Hudson could get an office in the basement, time off requests denied, assigned duties that require travel to Modoc County, etc. Trying to fend this off is the likely motive for Mr. Hudson pushing the CRA in the direction of Trainwreck Teddy, who they rebuffed just a few months ago.

The BOE is in chaos. Betty Yee, the California State Controller (who has a reputation of being an honest liberal) publicly called for the BOE to be dissolved because of its’ corruption.

BOE member Fiona Ma, echoed the call. While it is transparent she is trying to get free publicity for her State Treasurer race (in that regard she is no different than Hudson, Gaines or a host of others), she raised some valid points.

Existing Republican Members George Runner and Diane Harkey are pushing back against the calls to dissolve the BOE. Runner is the termed-out member Ted Gaines has been courting for support, appearing at events with him and trying to secure his endorsement.

The BOE is a mess. Hudson wants to keep a job, including the ability to flaunt the trust of the taxpayers in the middle of the day with God-knows-what PAC or group he is a part of at center stage, versus the Job his estimated $175K salary+package is supposed to be paying for.

Yee and Ma have one thing right. There are too many Thomas N Hudson’s in the BOE abusing the system. (and what’s left of the CRA in the process)

Apr 022017
 

Many of you that are politically in tuned are aware of Donald Trump’s first budget and the fact that it is cutting most government departments and eliminating 19 entire departments.

The reactions have been predictable. Republicans and Democrats alike are melting down. Their very existence is in the cradle of Government.

The Democrats went postal, savaging a colleague in order to try and forestall what they saw coming. Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, who was a siting Congressman at the time he was savaged, was approved by an almost party-line vote.

“Part of your answer is focusing on efficiencies and focusing on doing what we do better. As to climate change, I think the President was fairly straightforward saying we’re not spending money on that anymore,” Mulvaney said. “We consider that to be a waste of your money to go out and do that. So that is a specific tie to his campaign.”

Additionally, President Trump plans to cut at least 3000 positions from the Environmental Protection Agency, which the administration believes has grossly overstepped its regulatory authority in recent years.

Obama’s Consumer Bureau, created by a dictate with a director shielded from Presidential Oversight is in the cross-hairs of Trump. This “department” was created as a haven for social justice warriors to attack businesses with impunity.

It is Trump, not Obama that cut the red tape of the EPA to deliver $100 million to fix Flint Michigan’s water supply. When Flint happened, the usual suspects ran in front of cameras blaming white racism for their woes. However, an Act of Congress was passed in 2016 but the money was held up by red tape. In less than 2 weeks after EPA Director Scott Pruitt was confirmed (again despite withering psychotic opposition from the dems in the Senate), Flint Michigan will get their water system overhauled. Remember, DONALD TRUMP VISITED FLINT during the Presidential Campaign. Hillary Clinton did not. Another Promise Kept by Trump.

IBM adds 2,000 jobs for veterans. Why? Because Trump asked. Obama never did – it makes you wonder if Obama was running jobs out of the US on purpose.

IBM joins a growing list of companies announcing major expansion in the age of Trump. The list includes 45,000 jobs announced by Exxon Mobil, 10,000 new jobs at Kroger, 10,000 jobs at Walmart, another 10,000 jobs to be offered by U.S. Steel, and 50,000 by SoftBank Telecommunications, among many others.

Here is an anecdotal story of a Coal Miner. He got to return to work after three years because the Trump administration gutted the insane regulations of the Obama administration against Coal.

That does not mean hard times are over for those people dependent on a coal mining paycheck. During the Obama administration, figures obtained by Fox News show that 36,800 coal miners lost their jobs. Last September, the number of people mining coal hit the lowest point since 1985.

Again, this is clear that Obama did this deliberately. Jimmy Carter was a buffoon, but it appears that Obama was something more sinister.

Speaking of the left, they have thrown in with Islam in a major way. The leftist-Islamic alliance is out in the open, this is especially true with Obama appointed Judges writing decisions to interfere with Trump’s attempt to stem the flow of terrorists. They are citing CAMPAIGN SPEECH as the reason to enjoin travel bans, NOT THE LAW.

The left is so unhinged that their organized protesters Booed a Republican Congressman from Michigan for saying he supports increased military funding!!!

Starbucks had its’ earnings drop, its’ brand ID drop and is in turmoil after its’ CEO said they would be hiring 10,000 “refugees” in a politically motivated response to Donald Trump.

People don’t want Muslim Refugees in America. It is what it is. Until Islam takes out the trash that represent 8-40% of its’ members depending on Country, this won’t change.

Spain has arrested 181 Militant Muslims after in previous years having almost no arrests. When you read the article, the theme is clear, porous open borders.

6 of 10 people in France say they don’t feel safe anywhere. Muslims are now about 20% of the French population. The French are finally starting to deport Muslims, but not in large enough numbers. Again, a porous open border.

Radical Islam has a foothold in America, aided and abetted by the American Left CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood (several members of Obama admin had direct ties to them) have established a bunch of Mosques in America. The nearest one to Placer County is in Davis.

Since the American Left understands that a porous open border is the best and about the only way they can stay relevant in America (aka new democrat refugees / immigrants to put on welfare and register to vote) the Attorney General of Virginia is now out in the open colluding with the Muslim Brotherhood / CAIR running to leftist judges to try and stop Donald Trump’s Security Agenda. The State of Virginia is one to watch. Bush carried it twice, but it has gone dem three times in a row as it was worked over hard by the Obama admin with immigrants and refugees. The dems there have gone as far as any anywhere. In a swing state that could cause a backlash.

Not to be outdone, the newest Chairman of the Vermont Dem Party is an FBI Investigated radical Muslim. We know that the dems have made their choice. They are the party of Islam.

The dems sudden concern about religious freedom in the name of Islam should be the perfect evidence. These are the same dems that celebrated fines (Like $135k, foreclosure and loss of business in Oregon) and threats of Jail Time for Christian business owners that objected to being forced to do business with situations that were contrary to their faith. These recent converts to fighting for religious freedom seem to have forgotten the baker that faces prison over a wedding cake. I also wrote a lot more about the persecution of Christians in America here as well.

And finally, Google is out of the closet. Having been rightly burned multiple times rigging search engine results to try to benefit Hillary Clinton in 2016, they have abandoned any pretense and are admitting openly they will be flagging content they don’t like.

You’d think the media would tire of getting their butts kicked. Donald Trump set off a firestorm when two weeks ago he tweeted that Trump Tower was wiretapped.

The media, already on tilt has bet the ranch they can make a liar out of Trump over this.

Enter a joint news conference with the train wreck German Prime Minister Angela Merkel. After the media breathlessly reported the lack of a handshake when they first met, the Press avail occurred several hours later with the predictable stupidity from the reporters. Trump nuked them.

Trump said he “very seldom” tweeted things he regrets, and added, “As far as wiretapping by this past administration, at least we have something in common perhaps.” Merkel looked deeply uncomfortable. Trump stated, “We said nothing. All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn’t make an opinion on it. That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox. So you shouldn’t be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox.”

Unless you were living under a rock in the Presidential Campaign, you will remember one of the most infamous Wikileaks was the revelation that the Obama Administration bugged Angela Merkel’s Phone.

The Fake news has been chugging along. DONALD TRUMP WANTS TO KILL BIG BIRD! Ummm. Nope, eliminating National Palestenian Radio saves the taxpayers money and Big Bird is property of HBO now.

The Godfather of Fake News, Dan Rather (whose career ended over a lie in 2004 about President W Bush) predicted that, “People will die because of this budget. People will suffer. Diseases will spread, and cures will not be found.”

DONALD TRUMP IS GOING TO KILL MEALS ON WHEELS! Ummm Nope – what Trump is killing is fraud like:

The money often is not going to Meals on Wheels or even to the neediest communities. As a Reason Foundation analysis also from 2013 shows, wealthier communities get the larger chunks of the money, particularly counties that—what a coincidence!—are in proximity to Washington, D.C….Check out this audit from Riverside County, California, for their CDBG expenditures for 2016, and there’s neither a meal nor a wheel to be found. Of the $761,744 the county received, nearly all of it went to improve a playground and the sidewalks of a single local elementary school. And note that the reason they were audited by Housing and Urban Development was because they hadn’t provided proper documentation of their expenses.

Now here IS something for the left to cut their wrists over: Illegal Aliens stop applying for SNAP benefits over fear of deportation. Stop mass migration and free stuff and you decimate the democrat’s ability to recruit new voters as they continue to alienate the middle class and American citizens.

Here is something else for the American Left to cut their wrists over: ISIS is on the ropes after only 8 week of Trump. The message to ISIS in MOSUL? You are all going to die. Lest some of you pansies forget what ISIS is all about (The American left thinks Women’s rights stop at abortion while glorifying Islam whose followers mutilate women, subjigate women, support terrorism at an 8-50% rate depending on country and of course savage Christians every chance they get) CONTENT WARNING Iraqi troops uncover mass graves in Mosul courtesy of ISIS.

The fact that Obama was so weak, or perhaps a Muslim appeaser because he was one himself, that he let this evil exist far longer than it should have is cause enough to try him for war crimes IMO. But, then Jimmy Carter was a complete moron whose stupidity and weakness empowered a bunch of Islamic Psychos as well. (Jimmy Carter is also a democrat)

The Travel Ban was overturned once again by another Obama appointed Judge. Once again, Obama judges are using opinion and campaign rhetoric and not the law to render rulings. These rulings have turned several new pages – one of Judges overtly making laws from their bench and the second of muslims having more rights than American Citizens.

Note that the Attorney General of Virginia is teaming up with Hamas-Linked CAIR to fight Trump’s attempts to get a handle on terrorists coming to America. It appears that the leftist-Islamic alliance is out in to the open and that the democrats really want to lose more elections.

Fortunately, Trump alone has caused illegal immigration to plummet. Even still, islamic terrorists and mexican psychos (drug cartels) are still smuggling weapons en masse. Perhaps these loser Judges need to have a bunch of “refugees” settled in their neighborhoods as well as a trip to the border to see stuff like the following…

An arsenal of 10,000+ weapons was seized in Spain. This crap could have ended up anywhere.

Typical of the American Media, weapons seizures at the Southern Border of the US are forced out onto smaller blogs and websites and are largely ignored like this one in Tuscon.

The democrats are going to get hammered worse than they could ever imagine as they are the party of anything opposite of what Trump is doing. Given that a lot of people agree with Trump (such as 84% opposing Sanctuary Cities), this is a loser.

Another installment coming soon.

The Nevada, Kings and Sutter-Yuba RA are being kept on the books in the Time-Honored Thomas N Hudson tradition of paper chapters. It is possible that the defunct Kern River Valley RA was included in Hudson’s number of 41 as well. Solano, Placer, El Dorado, Sacramento, Cosumnes, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Fresno and Porterville are it in the North.

My estimation based on anecdotal evidence (from people all over everywhere that I will cite should Thomas N Hudson’s narcissistic rage result in more than legal demand letters against this blogger…) is that the CRA is down to about 200 members in the entire North State. Those within the CRA will call me a liar and claim the number is 250-270 (which is still pathetic), but no one will know the truth as the CRA is not subject to scrutiny of their membership records because of their “permanent charter” by the CAGOP. More likely is that they will privately fume and remind themselves how right they are as they continue to blame me for their bad behavior.

Several RA Units in the Sacramento / Gold Country area are being kept alive to assuage the bruised egos of the “leadership” of CRA in the North – including the Nevada RA that was the linchpin of the lynching of George and I off of the CRA’s Board. Despite the face-saving manipulation of process, they simply can not stop the wholesale collapse in the South. (nor cover it up)

The Santa Barbara RA has Collapsed. The Ventura RA and N San Fernando RA are not even mentioned anymore. <<< These are two of the units George and I were expelled for allegedly mistreating, however their demise proves they were indeed bogus.

The Pasadena RA is being kept alive on paper. The Santa Clarita RA, a 150 member empire of fraud sent in no delegates in 2017 and is alive only on Paper. The “Leaders” of the Santa Clarita RA whose manipulation and deceit split the CRA’s Board of Directors – Alice Khosravy and Wendy Albright both moved to Florida. Alice Khosravy is still listed as a CRA VP, another face-saving move by the Bathroom Boys and Narcissists in leadership of the CRA. <<< again these were the other two units we were so mean to, we had to be expelled to save the CRA to allow the above 5 units freedom to… die.

This is vindication that George and I were used by the Bathroom Boys and Narcissists on CRA’s leadership as Straw Men for the results of their failures.

The Glendale Burbank RA is being courted by newly minted CROC President Stephen “Gerbilhead” Frank for a hostile takeover in to the moribund CRC that has never had a state convention. The GBRA was about 80 members in the not-too-distant past. It sits somewhere in the 20’s according to information I recently received.

In the South of LA County is the South Bay RA that the Information Minister claims is on the rebound despite the toxic image it has courtesy of Bill Schmidt (also in Florida now) and the crazed G Rick Marshall. Palos Verdes is admitted to be on life support by the ministry of CRA information (aka it is a paper zombie) and the Torrance Lomita RA is a shell of its’ former self.

Riverside County lists one unit – the Murrieta Temecula RA, that can’t get 6 people to a meeting, but allegedly has something like 60 members still. If 60 is indeed true, this is still a 2/3 reduction from just 5 years ago.

San Diego County lists one unit – the terminally 15 member E SD RA

San Bernardino County lists one unit – the Big Bear RA

In Orange County reside about half of the remaining Units of the CRA:

Yorba-Placentia were said to be out of compliance with CRA By-Laws
Ladera Ranch – the same
Rancho Santa Margarita – the same
Westminister – the same
Santa Ana – the same
Fullerton – the same

When the people that expelled George and I are now admitting units are out of compliance with CRA by-laws you know it is bad. We were expelled for trying to get units in to the realm of legitimacy as legitimate units are a threat to control.

S OC RA has fractured down to less than 20 members
Saddleback RA the same

Huntington Beach checks in in the 20’s
Fountain Valley the same
Tustin the same
Newport Beach the same – the legendary Dick Nichols is alleged to no longer be living in CA. Perhaps he has gone to a white supremacist leper colony to live out his golden years with Willis Carto.

This leaves Anaheim and Stanton was the largest CRA units in Orange County that are actually in good standing.

With the above information, it becomes clear why I peg the CRA’s membership in the 600-700 range when you filter for actual dues paying members. Remember, the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister has said publicly that “there is nothing in the By-Laws preventing someone else from paying dues for someone”. This means if you were ever a member of CRA, you may still be on the rolls years later – it was fighting this practice that was also part of the nexus to oust George and I.

Do many of these units even meet? Enter Hudson again, “There is no requirement in the CRA’s By-Laws to keep minutes”. Translation, no one will ever know. It was the fight to get units to actually meet and do things other than send delegates to make worthless endorsements that was also part of the nexus to expel George and I. (see also people’s desire for control, not actually doing anything)

So why the charade? In the next post in this series, I will attempt to explain.

Mar 302017
 

For those of you wondering why I am writing about the demise of the CRA so much, it is pretty straightforward. The malcontents and the bathroom boys that threw George and I out of the CRA publicly proclaimed a manifesto of grievances in a rigged hearing in May of 2015 in order to project their bad behavior onto George and I. Donald Trump has proven that the only way to deal with liars (particularly the media) is to hammer them repeatedly until they change their narrative, then hammer them again until they go away. (They will never apologize or retract as that is a fate worse than death for the self-righteous)

Secondly, and more importantly, bombshells manifest at the just concluded CRA Convention. The CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister Thomas N Hudson told the gathered CRA Board that the CRA is down to 41 units, with only 31 being in good standing. This is significant. When George and I were expelled, there were 54 Units. My understanding is that only 20 units were represented with delegates at the 2017 Convention. In 2013, there were 162 delegates for a contested election and 137 in 2015 (with 220 credentialed) with the CRA Presidency not contested. IN 2017, there were 54 on Saturday, later increased to 62 by Sunday Morning. The total number Credentialed was 130.

When we were expelled from CRA, we believed that the membership had dipped below 1000, even though there were around 1200 names on the list. If you remove the 50 or so board members from the credentials list, this leaves some 80 available delegates. Anyone with an understanding of the CRA’s rules and math will deduce that this means the CRA is at 500-600 members statewide. Half the delegates gone. Half the members gone. In their minds, it is all George and Aaron’s fault.

For whatever reason, despite the wholesale collapse of the CRA – they thought it was wise to try to scuttle the charter of the CIR at the CA GOP Convention. If you think about it, it makes sense. I’ve been using Thomas N Hudson like a punching bag, similar to what Trump has been doing to the National Media. As a result, Hudson is on tilt. If you look at the attached picture, the happier he gets, the larger he gets. The CRA could not stop a nosebleed let alone a motion on the floor of the CRP convention.

The “charges” brought against us by the Bathroom Boys, Tom Hudson and others included harassing “good” CRA units. The linchpin of this was the fraudulent Nevada RA which was basically a zombie designed to muck up CRA endorsements (namely to nullify Placer, which at the time was hostile to incumbents). The conclusion I believe is since Mr. Hudson is a government employee, it was in his interest to support incumbents and he fought to keep the Nevada RA under wraps even as real people wanted to join it.

The Nevada RA is basically gone now. It is being kept alive on paper, in my opinion to assuage the bruised ego of Thomas N Hudson. Hudson fought all attempts to legitimize CRA and get units in to a status where they were real. He fought attempts to deal with the rampant fraud and cheating. The Nevada RA has not noticed a meeting, but they did send delegates in 2017 to the convention. I am also unaware that they did anything in 2016. The “President” of the Nevada RA, is a scumbag lawyer in the mold Mr. Hudson was an author of a complaint against George and I. Their collapse is a vindication of us.

Here we are, still standing with a healthy, viable organization and there they are in a papered over leper colony. (Please Note, I still live in California. If you’ve heard anything different, it is a lie.)

Sutter-Yuba? Just like with Placer 2 years ago, they surrendered their Charter with CRA. Just like with Placer 2 years ago, Hudson led an effort to refuse to accept the surrender. Again, these are right in Hudson’s backyard. Hudson needs to cover this #EPICFAILURE up in order to cover his ego. He claimed that there were 4 people wanting to keep the S-Y unit alive. I bet those people exist in his drunken fantasies.

Hudson appeared to be pretty miserable the weekend of the CRA Convention as the collapse of the organization has become real. Several people I have spoken to over the last three months have told me that Hudson’s explosive temper has been in full effect against a variety of people.

El Dorado? Reports from that county show that the unit can’t make quorum most of the time when they meet now.
Sacramento? It has been a listless shell with no more than 15 members at any time in the last 10 years
Placer? It is a remnant kept alive only by Thomas N Hudson’s ego, Ed Rowen’s duplicity and God knows what from Damian Fussell (who is very much a liberal Republican to the left of most in the GOP) all three are pictured above. (Rowen on far left, Hudson fills the Right half of the photo and Damian is in the middle)

Cosumnes RA? a 15 member shell, maybe 20 tops.
Contra Costa RA? Gone.
San Francisco RA? Gone.
Yolo RA? Gone.

The San Joaquin RA claims it is the largest Unit in the CRA at 75 members. (Two CIR Units are larger than 75) While the Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister claimed a Unit in Orange County had near 100 members at the recent state convention, perhaps they (douchemaker and crew in SJ) can have a big fat board fight and expel more members in a fight for the kingdom over this very issue. The SJRA managed 12 people at a recent meeting.

Stanislaus? No one went to convention. Membership around 15
Kings? Gone.
Fresno? The host unit of the CRA Convention is a 15 member shell.
Kern River Valley – Gone

The Porterville RA? 40 members tops, some of whom George and I discovered are white supremacists. Lovely, huh? (We raised the issue at a past board meeting and the two members were still on the books at the time of our expulsion)

AS the wholesale collapse of the CRA is statewide, this post is split in two parts. The second part will follow shortly.
