The CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister was the second person I met in Republican Politics way back in 1998. The first was Jeff Atteberry, the immediate past Chairman of the Placer GOP.

Thomas N Hudson, (pictured in a haze with State Senator Ted Gaines at the podium) is the current President of the CRA.

The CRA is the group that Jeff Atteberry recruited me in to back in 1998 after registering me in to the Republican Party. At one point, the CRA boasted nearly 7,000 members statewide and its’ conventions were the stuff of legend.

The California Republican Assembly used to be the endorsement to get if you were a Republican running for office.

It isn’t any more. It really wasn’t when I joined it in 1998. When I joined CRA in 1998, its’ President was the late Dick Mountjoy. Mountjoy was a barnacle stuck in the 1950’s. His protege, Mike Spence went on to serve 3 terms as CRA President.

Spence, who is currently facing felony DUI charges was the father of the pay to play endorsement scheme that beset the CRA pretty much the entire time I was involved in it. At least half of the Chapters were fake. They existed to rise up like a zombie army to influence the outcome of officer elections and endorsements. The most infamous drill were the 25 fake CRA units created to deliver a CRA endorsement to Mitt Romney in 2007.

George and I labored 15 years in vain to change that culture. We wanted to bring legitimacy to the organization, yet the organization itself had a culture that was impervious to integrity.

The wars within CRA sometimes made headlines. The genesis of the hatred between Doug LaMalfa, David Reade and others and myself was born within CRA fights.

In 2015, Both George and I were targeted for elimination. I wrote about it quite a bit. In May of 2015, they set up a board meeting in Santa Barbara, where Tom Hudson appointed 17 of the 30 votes on the CRA’s Board of Directors who voted to ban us for life from the organization.

The final straw was when we uncovered that the Santa Clarita RA, which claimed 150 members was a paper tiger. The Ventura RA, fake. The Pasadena RA, fake. The North San Fernando RA, fake. All were shepherded by Alice Khosravy, the CRA’s Black Widow. By the time we had discovered this, the die was cast. There were too many weak-minded people, conflict avoiders and others with paper thin egos that resented our leadership. They had to expel us in order to cover up for their personal corruption and failures. They did exactly what we knew they would do, wrote up bogus charges, blamed us for everything they did and lit their torches.

The leper colony rose up and threw George and I out.

Today, they are in the middle of their annual convention. It is pathetic. The only reason Ted Gaines is present at the CRA convention is because he is lining up his next office and wants the CRA endorsement for his campaign. Rumor has it that Mr. Hudson has requested a sponsorship in exchange for favorable treatment. Rumor has it that Tom Hudson has made several such requests.

The CRA had roughly 60 people for Friday Dinner. It had Roughly 60 people for Saturday Lunch. It had roughly 40 people for its Saturday AM floor session. The embedded picture is of that Sunday AM floor session.

In 2015, the last convention George and I ran – we had around 200 people who paid to attend with roughly 110 at Friday Dinner, topping out at around 180 for Saturday Dinner.

Despite an attempt to take out George at that convention he won by roughly 20% with around 180 votes cast.

Today’s convention features roughly 60 delegates. It is my estimation that the CRA has about 700-800 real members statewide. The real number will never be known because the permanent charter allows them to escape accountability. It had roughly 1200 members at the time we were expelled, including the 200 some proven fraudulent members we uncovered.

In order to assuage their bruised egos, they are blaming George and I for the demise of the CRA… see how that works? When we were expelled, the assembled board members were told that we needed to go in order to allow the CRA to grow again as an organization. They were told that every problem that beset the CRA was our doing.

Now the CRA is dead two years later, it is our fault in their minds. It is similar to Barack Hussein Obama blaming Bush for every problem he made worse.

The CRA lists 51 units on their website, yet according to leaks from within the organization, only 25-30 are in good standing. Half again of those are barely holding on with around 15 members. Fully 2/3 of the CRA’s units are dead, fake, zombies, etc. and are kept on the website for a fake appearance – the very thing George and I fought to reform, as it was that crusade to legitimize the CRA that led to our ouster.

I was leaked a copy of the CRA’s most recent financial report showing $51,000 in the bank. I raised $38,000 of it. The conventions George and I ran made huge money until the 2015 convention when the jihad against us caused many to pay registration only. In addition, I simply did not collect on many donation pledges because I had no motivation to with the self-righteous bathroom boys and others lining up to lynch us.

Many current board members of the CRA resented me for raising the money, and still more that accused me of selling influence. They ought to talk to their pol-pot bellied information minister about that. Perhaps it does not matter, as a shell of a once great organization has no resale value.

Many current board members of the CRA resented George for running a tight ship with regard to CRA units renewing. People complained a lot about the scrutiny about following the by-laws. This scrutiny cloaked as George being a meanie was a reason used to expel George.

Now half the CRA’s units have vaporized – including the 4 that we were accused of abusing and mistreating. I thought expelling us was supposed to free them to grow, endorse and live their lives out from under the tyranny of the evil Park Brothers. It never happened. They were fake. Many of the board members of CRA that expelled us knew it when they expelled us. Their egos were bruised and their ego was put ahead of the CRA.

Now the CRA is dead. The problem for the inmates is that there are no Park Brothers to blame anymore. The only legacy we left is the big bank balance.

There is a price to being right, and they are reaping it all.

Donald Trump’s Administration is draining the swamp. Similar to Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, the Trump Administration has fired all of the US Attorneys. Not similar is the media outcry over what is basically standard practice. See the difference in headlines as written by the same reporter 8 years apart.

Speaking of Swamp-Draining, Obama bureaucrats with the same far-left agenda are being forced out. One such bureaucrat is someone from the Department of Homeland Security who openly defied Donald Trump’s temporary travel restrictions.

Lori Scialabba, the Acting Director at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in the Department of Homeland Security, “announced her coming retirement from federal service” on Tuesday, a spokesperson for the department has confirmed to Breitbart News.

Good riddance.

GASP! Trump’s education adviser promotes PRIVATE SCHOOLS. The nerve of him promoting competition versus unionized brainwashing of our children!

One of the reasons the democrats savaged Jeff Sessions (the Attorney General), Detsy DeVos (Secretary of Education) and others is because they will be able to decimate the status quo. This is what is desperately needed.

Speaking of DHS and the Swamp – how would you like a list of “Charities” that get federal funding that is used to harbor illegal aliens? Your tax dollars have been used to create the next generation of democrat welfare-recipient voters.

Between the years 2012 to 2016, it’s been estimated that taxpayers spent more than $291 million funding “eight nonprofits that serve, protect or advocate for illegal immigrants,” according to an analysis of federal spending data and tax documents released by the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group on Friday.

At least one of those eight groups endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.

Data obtained from USAspending.gov and IRS Form 990s show that “94 percent of the public funds — nearly $274 million — came from the federal government.”

Why is Trump’s “Border Surge” and “Border Wall” such a big deal? 224 tunnels, that’s why. Think of all the dope coming in through those tunnels! Human Trafficking? That too. When ABC news is the original source, you KNOW it is bad.

On the subject of sex trafficking, over 1500 arrests have been made and scum are being prosecuted. Why did this not happen under Obama? #PIZZAGATE? #DRAINTHESWAMP The mainstream American Media are silent. Why? The Johns up to this point are democrats and probably are amongst their ranks… these are beyond the usual “we won’t report what makes Trump look good”.

How about a department of the interior update? A judge just tossed a lawsuit aimed at preventing grazing on public land. The back story is previously the Obama administration was not defending against the lawsuit, but the Trump admin did and the judge hammered the enviro groups.

Ryan Zinke promises big changes at the department of the interior. Previously he talked about something near to my heart, dealing with the Obama-Era $12 Billion backlog of maintenance. The Obama admin had an unspoken policy of trying to discourage use of public lands.

Obama era micromanagement regulations on teachers were overturned by the US Senate 59-40. With more gutting of education mandates coming, a second gutted mandate caused Patty Murray complains that the overturned regulation gives Betsy DeVos a blank check to promote her “anti public schools agenda”. That means America just won.

Donald Trump is sending Judges to illegal alien detention centers in order to speed up deportation hearings.

Probably you didn’t know that the EPA had a head of Environmental Justice, but you should because you’ve been paying his salary since the George H.W. Bush era. His name is Mustafa Ali, and, according to a tearful requiem in Inside Climate, he has resigned in protest at EPA budget cuts, which will see the agency lose 20 percent of its 15,000 staff and $2 billion from its $8 billion.

EPA Chief Scott Pruitt was fought vociferously by the democrats as well. He is already hammering the EPA in to submission, ending years of that departments out of control social justice warrior culture. George W Bush did not get rid of Mustafa Ali who used his position to threaten corporations and drive costs up. Ali was in his position since George H W Bush. #DRAINTHESWAMP

Abortion and transgender bathrooms

Although not known to be overtly socially conservative, Trump has taken action to protect the rights of the unborn. In his first week, Trump signed an executive order restoring the Mexico City policy, which bans federal funds from being used to fund abortions at organizations such as Planned Parenthood.

Trump has also revoked Barack Obama’s federal guidelines forcing public institutions to let transgender people use the bathroom of their choice, even if it is not that of their biological sex. This decision will now be left up to the states and school districts.

The final piece is a summary of Trump’s first 50 days. No one can keep up. How sweet it is.

Stay Tuned as I do the best I can to keep up with what is going on! #MAGA #WINNING

Want to know why the economy is starting to amp up despite no major legislation being passed?

Jobs and wages surged in the first full month of Trump.

The first monthly jobs report under President Trump Friday showed a strong economic performance, with employers adding 235,000 jobs in February and the unemployment rate falling slightly to 4.7 percent.

The Labor Department said wages also grew 2.8 percent from February 2016.

Trump has been asking US Companies to stay. Obama never did – which suggests that Obama was trying to tank the US Economy all along.

45,000 new Jobs from Evil Oil Company Exxon Mobil.

Here is a list of 10 major US Companies that made new plans to stay in the US or create new jobs in the US. Amazon, Ford, Sprint, WalMart, IBM and others….

While left-wing fact checkers are trying to make hair-splitting ego-saving claims that Trump had nothing to do with this, in multiple cases Mr. Trump intervened and the companies acknowledged it.

Illegal Border Crossings hit a five year low after Trump’s executive order.

As is well known right now, Trump issued an executive order mandating government enforce the law, build the wall (that was funded already) and hire more Border Patrol, Marshalls and ICE Agents.

Donald Trump has been going after Government Regulation.

He issued an executive order requiring each agency to repeal 2 regulations for every 1 new one issued.

He issued an executive order creating a Regulatory Reform Officer in every department whose goal it is to repeal regulations.

Obama-era OSHA rules making it easier to sue employers have been overturned. More are coming.

Obama-era job killing environmental insanity is getting gutted piece by piece.

The insane Waters of America Rule is gone. This was the rule that allowed the government to take people’s land away for building a pond on it.

Regulations that killed the Coal Industry are gone.

Republicans have sought to partner with centrist Democrats, many of whom represent states won by Trump in the presidential election, to enact regulatory reform.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) teamed up with Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) on three regulatory reform measures in the last Congress that they plan to bring back: the Smarter Regulations Through Advance Planning and Review Act; Early Participation in Regulations Act; and Principled Rulemaking Act.

Another executive order — which the Trump administration will couch as reducing U.S. dependence on other countries for energy — will instruct the Environmental Protection Agency to begin rewriting the 2015 regulation that limits greenhouse-gas emissions from existing electric utilities. It also instructs the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to lift a moratorium on federal coal leasing.

Read the biased drivel from the WaPo for more.

Another key issue is bills have passed Congress and are waiting on the Senate overturning regulations strangling the Oil and Gas Industry. Again, these were rules done while Obama was on a narcissistic rage at the end of his term.

What remains to be seen is if any of the 34(!) National Monuments decreed in to existence by Obama get voided by Mr. Trump. Several were created specifically to hinder exploration of Oil and Gas.

Remember – government Regulation has been the only effective way for the left to advance its’ agenda for years. The second most effective way have been arrogant judges that create law at a whim from their bench.

Remember – the top way democrats recruit new voters is through mass immigration. The second way is through getting felons the right to vote.

The above two paragraphs should explain to you why the democrats are on tilt. The immediate impacts of simple actions by Mr. Trump should also show you just how devastating those policies have been…

#RINOCARE #TRUMPCARE #RYANCARE, whatever you call it, you’ve seen the wailing and gnashing of teeth over it.

Let’s talk about why this Insurance Agent (Did you know that is my day job? www.parkfamilyinsurance.com) is a fan of this replacement bill.

All the tax increases are gone – a couple I highlight specifically later.

The devastating slash to Health Savings Accounts is gone, they will be restored to what they were before Obama’s back-door tax increase at the expense of the middle class occurred.

Subsidies are replaced with Refundable Tax Credits. The means testing for how much is based on your age. Gone is the carrot and stick of government picking winners. The Tax Credits will allow a whole bunch of people to write-off the cost of their premiums versus a select few getting welfare.

Obamacare included the following sinister provisions that are gone:

4% per year profit mandate on Insurance Carriers, with no limit on how much you could lose – imagine being prevented from reserving for really bad years? Obama mandated that evil insurance companies issue a dividend when they made more than 4%. This provision was the single biggest driver of the massive rate increases.

Expense ratio mandates on Health Insurance Carriers are gone. This means long waits on the phone for service could be a thing of the past as they will be able to properly staff again.

ACA dictated Territories to Health Insurance Carriers, forcing odd geographical groupings and resulting in circumstances where a move of 2 miles could cause dramatic premium increases.

ACA dictated the ENTIRE outline of coverage. While un-discerning people blamed Insurance carriers for massive deductibles and copays, it was ACA mandates not Insurance Carrier decisions.

ACA dictated that Insurance Premiums index every year versus in 5 or 10 year age groupings, and that rates could only be triple at 64 as what they were at age 18. This caused everyone under 40 to get hammered.

ACA Dictated that families get charged per child versus on a family rate. This sinister provision disporportionally affected married families (think Republicans) with more than 3 children, because…

Subsidies (think Premium welfare) were based on income and the caps for a married couple were only 125% higher than a single person. This was indeed a form of the Clinton-Era “Marriage Penalty” that was built in to the tax code. Therefore, ACA encouraged divorce in order for cash-strapped families to afford health insurance for large families.

ACA forced people of all ages to pay for maternity coverage…

… and everyone regardless of faith to pay for Abortion Coverage, Contraception and of course the all important Sex Change Operations at $500k a piece plus all the drugs that go along with it.

The chilling attack on Religious Freedom was litigated many times with the Obama Administration making extremely scary arguments in court against the First Amendment.

I am not a fan of the Refundable Tax Credits, but let me tell you that they are a far better way of helping people afford Health Insurance as they eliminate the carrot and stick and are calculated on your tax return, not by a liberal activist Social Justice Warrior.

Gone is the 3.5% Real Estate Transfer Tax that was a direct assault on inheritances, businesses and land owners.

Added is the flexibility for insurance carriers to offer varied outlines of coverage.

Gone is the deliberate flaw in ACA that allowed dishonest states like California to flaunt the paperwork, instead requiring real proof of Citizenship or legal alien status to get Tax Credits and also mandating a 6 month review in order to keep cases from getting buried. This provision is the single most important in the whole replacement bill.

For those of you not aware – in 2018 the Democrat Party will accomplish another one of their social engineering goals. Electricity rates will basically double statewide as the State Changes to a 2 Tier Electrical Rating System.

I recently received a notice that my water rates are going up 16% and sewer rates 14% over the next two years. The notice was clear that the rate increase was due to state mandates.

This is the psychosis of Sacramento where tin-horn demagogues like Kevin De Leon (who has illegal alien family members here in California) and Ricardo Lara are in a pitched battle to see who can get the crown for the worst bill in State History passed.

Kevin De Leon has decided to go for broke with a bill mandating 100% Renewable Energy in California by 2050. Renewable energy is stuff like Solar and Wind Power. Solar Panels wear out in 5-10 years, Wind turbines break frequently (and GASP! kill birds) and both methods are subject to the weather. Note – Dams that let water run over turbines do not count.

CA residential electricity costs an average of 42.3% more per kWh than the national average. CA commercial rates are 51.8% higher.  For industrial use, CA electricity is an astonishing 93.6% higher than the national average (July, 2016). The difference is growing between CA and the national average.

Another thing that is absurdly expensive in California? Housing. Thanks to people like Victor Bekhet, Sierra Watch and others that file CEQA lawsuits to thwart development and of course the psychos in Sacramento, there is amazingly a housing crisis in California despite the mass exodus of people. California has 38% of the Welfare cases in America and apparently, the dependent class has nowhere to live. Read more here.

The 2017-18 Governor’s Budget detailed Brown’s intention of phasing out the Middle Class Scholarship program, which assists students who come from households with a combined income of $156,000 or less with 40 per cent of their tuition costs.

But not getting cut is the funding for illegal alien DREAMers. This is where the California Left is.

Paul Golaszewski, Principal Fiscal & Policy Analyst for the LAO, told Campus Reform that the DREAM Act is going to cost California taxpayers $88.6 million in fiscal year 2017/18.

The total savings from screwing the middle class citizens? $111 Million. Total.

The state is $2 Billion in the hole still. Read the article here.

The State of CA is taking steps to make sure all the regulations Donald Trump is rolling back get re-encoded in State Law. Apparently, those in Charge of California want to have over 50% of the welfare cases in this state.

Introduced into the California Senate by Senate leader Kevin de Leon and Henry Stern, SB 49 is designed to protect California if there are rollbacks of major federal environmental laws such as the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, the Endangered Species Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act by making current standards enforceable as baselines under state law.

Why am I not surprised to see Kevin De Leon as the author of this?

I’ve talked to many conservative activists all over the state about the just concluded Central Committee Organizing Meetings. Now that I have had the time to process what happened, let RightonDaily share some inside info based on an amalgamation of what I know about the process used and the reasoning. Please note, I have off the record accounts from a variety of people. You can feel free to regard this as fake news if you like as I will not burn my sources.

It is my understanding that $1.7 Million Plus was spent in roughly 40 counties on mail and slate mail cards in order to influence the outcomes of Central Committee elections. GOP mega-donor Charles T Munger, Jr. largely financed the effort. This I did see on campaign finance filings.

Based on what I have read/seen, it appears that Mr. Munger and a group of smaller donors spent something like $10 million between them on a variety of causes and issues in 2016 alone out of the Spirit of Democracy PAC. This I did see on campaign filings.

There are handful of consultants on retainer at the behest of both Republican Leadership and his independent expenditure committee that give input in to decisions regarding spending. This of course allows those on the payroll to inject their own personal bias in to the recommendations. I only have circumstantial evidence and anonymous testimony from people to validate this claim.

In Butte County, the personal bias of a consultant was clear. The Chairman Mike Zuccolillo was singled out because the Butte GOP allowed a primary challenger to Doug LaMalfa to speak at an event. It got blown out of proportion, money flowed in and it culminated with a disastrous organizational meeting in December. Some people I consider friends ended up on the short end of the stick. Mike Zuccolillo was a well respected county chairman within the GOP. The nexus for this was basically one man that drew targets on a group of people he did not like in favor of legislative staff and the Congressman’s family. It is the opinion of this blogger that people in GOP leadership a hundred or more miles away did not have their own eyes on the ground and the decisions were made in a vacuum.

I feel for those on Butte, because at least when $100k was spent going after me (and others in Placer) in 2012, I had been paid by Andy Pugno in his attempt to unseat Beth Gaines. All Butte did was let Joe Montes speak! I earned the revenge of GOP Leadership because I actively attempted to (GASP!) take out a feckless loser of an incumbent. I do not regret that decision at all.

There were several other counties where money was spent and the nexus was not as clear as political consultant revenge. For example, the moribund Sacramento Central Committee was gutted. Good long time activists of all stripes were blown out in favor of legislative staff and political consultants.

The new chair is a donor. Despite having a 3-1 advantage in votes, the consultants and staffers that won election ran a brutal organizational meeting that was scripted and ended up being a 20 minute jam-down. This is never a smart thing to do when your majority is that large, just do a 2/3 vote to torch debate, don’t brow-beat people. Worse, they massacred stalwarts of the local GOP, as effective volunteers were annihilated along with the bad actors. It is the opinion of this blogger that if you have leadership that has lost their ability to lead, you confront them and give them a chance to resign before running them over with a steamroller. Roger Canfield, Carl Burton and others were discarded. You don’t strip people of their dignity after years of service.

In Riverside and LA County – several bad actors were wiped off of their Central Committees. The San Bernardino Central Committee was almost completely turned over. I don’t know all the players in those tilts, but I do know that the winners and losers were across ideological lines. One Assembly District Cent Com election in LA saw two guys I know to be psychos (both liked to launch anonymous internet attacks, one got a pot lawyer to sue the current Riverside GOP Chairman and lost badly) ousted from that Cent Com.

This is what I do believe: Republican Leadership are desperate to try to get a handle on the dysfunction in Central Committees, volunteer groups and the State Party. As such, they attempt to spend a lot of money to exert control over the process. They just so happen to have a mega-donor. People think it is Mr. Munger making the decisions on his own, no. People think Mr. Munger is targeting conservatives only, no. Don’t use Charles Munger as a straw man, he has a lot of money, but he is not a lone wolf.

I think the approach that was and has been used is wrong. However, seeing the behavior of the Tea Party Caucus and the CRA at the just concluded CRP Convention certainly validates the tact that the CA GOP leadership is taking. But, spending insane amounts of money in 40+ counties creates a permanent class of the aggrieved. Having a small group of people making decisions about party leadership only reinforces the stereotype about the GOP being the party of old, rich guys.

These people (the Tea Party Caucus and the CRA) opposed both the gay guys and the conservative guys from getting chartered. I watch them disrupt floor sessions, attack leadership on social media, blogs, emails, etc. It is the same concept as the content of this blog no one reads but everyone seems to know what’s on. There are consequences to throwing bombs! People want to “get” me all the time I guess the TPCC leadership and CRA get to join the club of targets.

They (the CRA and the Tea Party Caucus) are also fighting to keep the CA GOP tent small, a conclusion that is easy to draw from what they have been doing. It makes it really hard to be sympathetic to those guys when I hear stories from counties all over the north state about jam down leadership meetings. The Jam Downs are Wrong. The Disruption is wrong. No wonder why I can’t sort this mess out…

I am personally ideologically aligned with the Tea Party. Before an inmate uprising in the CRA Asylum, I was an officer of that group and was expelled for life for amongst other things not being Conservative enough. That is just insane, if I am a liberal than most Republicans are flaming communists.

The sad fact is that many in the GOP Tea Party Caucus desire ideological purity over everything, which is why they continue to fawn over proven frauds like Tim Donnelly. This sort of un-discerning and unstable behavior again validates repeatedly the purges brought by CA GOP leadership. They have got to stop making it so easy for establishment types to paint them as the crazies.

I have a lot of friends, who are really good people that also got purged. This is where the leadership are dead wrong. They were not doing their homework the way they should have been and were not out recruiting complete slates of candidates. In other cases, they filed seats with legislative staff who are beholden to their bosses and are not activists at all. As a result, you have some Central Committees that are a bizarre mix of people. This is the case in Placer where Chairman Dennis Revell won by one vote and the other officers, aligned against him all won by 1-3 votes. It is the opinion of this blogger that people whose paycheck comes from the Government as a public employee should not be allowed to serve on a County Party Committee regardless of how conservative they are or how much I like them personally.

I had gone in to the weekend of the CRP convinced that CA GOP leadership were completely wrong for intervening in Central Committee elections. I also thought the Elected leaders were mostly wrong. Then I saw Steve Frank, Thomas N Hudson and others in action and had in front of my face as another case study for why the “leadership” did what they did.

The lack of clarity is infuriating and is indeed a disaster in some areas and a definite gain in others for the future of the CA GOP. There are a lot of people to blame for it. There are a lot of people hurt by it. Meantime, the CAGOP is at 27% and sliding. From where I sit, there is a ton of blame to spread around.

I am tired of seeing people fight to be right. Why not put a sock in it, register some voters and win some elections? Then, maybe “Leadership” would not freak out and spend a ton of money? Maybe leadership should have some two-way communication with elements of the CA GOP they don’t now so well and maybe good people would not get purged?

Just one blogger and veteran of many unnecessary wars asking some questions here.

You’d think with the CAGOP at 27% and falling that Conservatives would get a message. There is a term I refer to called “Ideological Narcissism”. This is the believe that since my stances on the issues are morally pure that I will refuse pragmatism, any sort of compromise and will tilt out on a vainglorious campaign regardless of who gets hurt.

Elements of the Tea Party California Caucus and the remnant of the CRA leadership led the opposition to the California Impact Republicans Charter. These were the same groups that opposed the charter of the Log Cabin Republicans. Apparently they believe a small, insular GOP is the way to go. This, ironically was the attack used against the moderate Republicans years ago when I first got involved in the CAGOP. What a circle.

The Log Cabin Republicans are a gay rights group. They tend be be on the left of the GOP.

Quoting the CIR’s Statement of Values:

We Are Pro-Gun – The Second Amendment was created for security and stability. We believe attempts to curb and limit the 2nd Amendment are an attack on freedom.

We Are Pro-Family – We believe that the traditional, nuclear family is the backbone of society. We believe that an agenda-free educational system based on sound fundamentals is critical to our future, including alternatives to the government education systems.

We Are Pro-Life – We believe in protecting life at all stages, from pre-born to elderly, including the disabled.

Whoops. Now what do the Log Cabin Republicans and the CIR have in common other than opposition led by the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister Thomas N Hudson, Steve “Gerbilhead” Frank and Deborah Jackson? Not a whole lot other than the word Republican.

None of them attempted to derail the Charter of the CIR in the Volunteer Committee. They attempted deceptive tactics on the floor designed to confuse delegates. These included a motion to oppose, a motion to table, a motion to extend debate and a motion to end debate on the motion to extend debate. This confusion almost succeeded in delaying the inevitable charter of the CIR.

Last I checked, deception is not a Conservative value. Both Steve Frank and Thomas N Hudson are irrelevant and are widely disdained within the CRP and their opposition likely solidified support for the CIR’s Charter on the Floor. Both of them are relics of the past when do as I say, not as I do Conservatives were in positions of influence within the CRP.

I am sure Deborah Jackson had some important points to make as she was also the lone no vote against re-electing Jim Brulte CRP Chairman and Re-Electing Deborah Wilder CRP Secretary. She never got a chance to enlighten the delegates as debate was truncated in the Hudson-Gerbilhead induced confusion.

Not to be ignored was Baron Night who leveled a personal attack from the CRP floor earning a rebuke from the Party Chairman. It is nice to know that the CRA will be the CRA, ever placing personalities over principles.

It is indeed True that the Moderates are in charge of the CAGOP. They are in charge for a variety of reasons, understanding unity far better than conservatives, understanding personal consistency far better than conservatives, understand the concept of winning elections and lastly the conflict avoidance of a generation of conservative leaders within the CAGOP structure that created a leadership vacuum.

The bottom line, the moderates said, these are the rules. (Ironically that were created under the tenure of Fleischman / Schroeder specifically to make chartering the Log Cabin Group impossible) Then a group of Conservatives followed the rules. The moderates said, yes, you followed the rules and are eligible for a charter. Then a group of conservatives said, no we don’t want them to get a charter.

Got it? This is what happened courtesy of Thomas N Hudson, Gerbilhead and others. The CIR was chartered overwhelmingly.

They can go debate and pass meaningless resolutions. The CIR is going to go win some elections.

Thank you to the CAGOP establishment, most of whom are to the left of the CIR, for chartering our organization. Thank you to the Conservatives within the Tea Party Caucus and the CRA that did not follow their misguided leadership, but supported us as well.

Ricardo Lara – who would be a great tin-horn dictator in a third world country has introduced SB562, to create single-payer health insurance in California. This is in response to their deep fears of Donald Trump and his evil plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. The real nexus? Government Control and Health Insurance for illegal aliens.

In 2015, Brown signed into law the senator’s Health4All Kids bill, which allocates almost $280 million in the coming fiscal year to cover health care costs for 185,000 undocumented California children up to age 18.

Last year, Brown also signed a Lara bill that would have allowed undocumented Californians to buy insurance through Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, regardless of their immigration status. The legislation would have cost taxpayers little or nothing because the undocumented wouldn’t have been entitled to any government subsidies, and the state filed for a federal waiver under the Affordable Care Act seeking to implement it. But last month, after it was delayed by the Trump administration, Lara withdrew the waiver request.

Lara who is on a roll this cycle also introduced SB29, which basically prevents law enforcement from using independent contractors to help them deal with illegal aliens. And it gets better, if you actually do detail illegal aliens, your records are immediately subject to FOIA requests. This means internal communication (similar to what Obama holdovers are leaking to the press in real time), investigation files and other things law enforcement use to gain advantage in prosecution are now public record. Nice, huh?

SB1 is the $5 Billion Gas Tax Hike. Please also note that the car tax is going up $65 a piece and the mileage tax is in the “study phase” thanks in no small part to State Senator Ted Gaines, a “Republican” who voted yes on the bill to establish the study of the mileage tax. Note that our roads are a mess and the current tax money goes in to the general fund so people like Ricardo Lara can spend it on welfare (and single payer healthcare).

IF you think the Gas Tax will be replaced by the mileage tax, you are insane. The Mileage Tax will be in addition to.

Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez introduced AB250 which is taxpayer subsidized trips to the beach for poor people. Yup, the state is in the hole $100+ Billion with Dams breaking and washed out roads everywhere and the priority is beach trips for the poor.

SB6 and AB3 – both bills would provide taxpayer funded legal assistance for illegal aliens in California to fight against ICE deporting them. Apparently, the psychos in the dem leadership in CA forgot that immigration policy is set by the federal government and neither law would stand up in court. (except maybe in the 9th circus)

In addition to Lara’s bill to expose law enforcement to unlimited civil liability for dealing with illegal aliens, Lara introduced to more bills. One is aimed at preventing construction of the border wall and the other is aimed at preventing a Muslim database. (Which does not exist)

SB179 is the Transgender change-your-drivers-license bill. Apparently, it is just too difficult to change all your legal documents to reflect how you feel about your genitalia as it is in its’ current state. According to Sen. Weiner, (one of the authors) “Our trans brothers and sisters are under attack in far too many parts of this country and this world.” I guess boys in the girl’s locker room is now a civil right. Note – Weiner is the guy’s actual last name.

SB2 – a tax increase on Commercial Real Estate and Rental Properties to pay for low-income housing. Like all of these bills, the money goes in to the general fund and may not be spent on its’ intended purpose (similar to gas taxes and infrastructure funds).

Lest you think bad bills are limited to democrats. Here is one with far less earth-shattering impact: Janet Nguyen wants to make campaign finance filings instantly available under FOIA. This would be especially helpful if you had the ability to go an intimidate donors and/or publicly humiliate Independent Expenditure Funders. This is SB529  It wpudl also give advantage in a campaign to the better funded candidate as the intimidation of donors has an increased effect when their is a perception of one winning versus another.

I am sure I will have an update because the democrats can’t help themselves.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ve seen the media celebrating taking General Michael Flynn out. It is likely and will be confirmed pending an investigation that Obama holdovers in the intelligence services leaked PARTS, not the whole tape of Mr. Flynn talking to Russian officials long before Trump was inaugurated.

One after the other, the media breathlessly reported that this is a scandal. Well, it is petering out. The clear nexus is that the media and the democrats are going to play the “Russia did it” card in order to de-legitimize Donald Trump’s election. The democrats are still thunderstruck over their loss. They need someone to blame – their willing lackeys in the media are doing their bidding and have completely abandoned any pretense of Journalism.

Trump, for his part started lighting up to media from the opening bell, including forcefully ripping in to them repeatedly.

Trump referenced how his calls with Mexico and Australia were basically leaked in real time. Within hours of each call the media were breathlessly reporting the misleading excerpts of it. Both times, the lie about Trump threatening them both was quickly debunked.

The ending of this Michael Flynn saga ultimately will lead to the exposure of all the Obama holdovers that have been leaking the phone transcripts to their willing lackeys in the media.

Click here to watch the entire press conference. Trump made it clear that the Justice Department will be investigating the leaks and hunting them down. He also unloaded on a few specific outlets by name.

Note that some media outlets are reporting that Obama himself may be coordinating the leaks and the Organizing for Action Riots that are occurring. There is indeed a connection. The NY Post blasted Obama as well.

In Spite of unprecedented Democrat Obstruction of his cabinet, Donald Trump is plowing forward with his agenda.

Just today – budget Hawk Mick Mulvaney was confirmed. This despite a dedicated and determined drill by Senate Democrats against him. This is the office of management and budget post.

Trump announced Alex Acosta as the new Pick for Secretary of Labor. This immediately sent the democrats in to a tailspin again as he has been confirmed by the Senate three times in the past, once for a Cabinet position. Acosta is a Conservative former law clerk for Samuel Alito and the a US Attorney from South Florida. They hardly had time to celebrate “Getting” Andrew Pudzer.

Trump EPA Nominee Scott Pruitt advanced to a final vote on a 54-46 procedural vote with Two Democrat Senators breaking ranks, Joe Manchin (D -WV t+42% in 2016) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND T+40% in 2016). Charles Schumer has exerted almost stalinistic control of his caucus in a nearly psychotic rampage 100% about trying to throttle Trump’s agenda.

Mr. Trump also announced that one of the main financiers of the #NEVERTRUMP movement was at the White House for a meeting and is now part of the team. (Billionaire Paul Singer)

He referenced several plants being retained by American companies versus going overseas. In addition, he highlighted several specific examples of companies that have decided to re-invest in America. Ford, Fiat, GM, Intel and Wal-Mart led the list of specific mentions…

He spoke directly about a re-do of the so-called Travel Ban executive order. This was a contest to a lot of fake news that he was going to drop the case that is headed to the Supreme Court. He indicated that he was going to re-write the order(s) as well as continuing the court case. This flies in the face of the obama organized protests / riots going on in various places in America.

He lit up Obama repeatedly on foreign policy indicating that he inherited a Mess from Obama.

He specifically said he was going to rebuild the military.

In addition, he specifically stated that his replacement to Obamacare would be coming out in Early March. This as former Obamacare sellouts (aka the Aetna CEO) are now calling its’ collapse eminent.

Hi indicated that his Tax Reform Plan is also coming out in March and is being negotiated.

He highlighted withdrawing from the Trans Pacific Partnership, he highlighted streamlining permitting processes (a sacred cow of the left bureaucracy is massive red tape), a moratorium on new regulations (along with a massive effort to can all of Obama’s lasts minute narcissistic rage regulations), a hiring freeze for the government, the new rule about how you must withdraw 2 regulations for every new one issued, a violent crime task force, a drug interdiction task force, significant border security measures (aka the wall and ending catch and release), deporting criminal aliens, hammering sanctuary cities, a new department in the department of homeland security for victims of crimes by illegal aliens, “extreme vetting” of immigrants / refugees, constructing the Keystone Pipeline and Dakota Access Pipelines, tasking his approved cabinet members with negotiating new trade deals for America, and he referenced Neil Gorsuch as a promise kept to America.

He indicated “Some Very Big Things are Coming Next Week”… can’t wait to see them.

The key takeaway from today’s press conference, he served notice on the media that he is 100% aware of their efforts and the efforts of others to sabotage his presidency. He put them all on notice – if you track the riots/demonstrations, they all have a central nexus, protect Obama’s legacy of failure. (Obamacare, forced muslim immigration and regulatory assassination of our economy) – you’d have to be a delusional idiot to miss the deeper meaning of Trump’s words. I am pretty sure that the Media will.

P.S. This week Trump started signing legislation – two first two bills of a package of repeals of insane Obama-Era Regulations. One torching a job killing alleged transparency bill designed to hamstring energy companies and another regulation that was decimating the coal industry.
