Did you know that Travis Allen is Pro-Choice? Yet his minions would have you believe that John Cox is a “RINO” part of the GOP Establishment. Yes, the same John Cox that was on Jack Kemp’s steering committee. (Most of Travis’ supporters will need to google Jack Kemp to realize that he was Ronald Reagan’s Conscience who kept Reagan Conservative)

Mr. Allen has a pattern of activity that will tell the truth about how opportunistic he is. Mr. Allen’s sudden turn to the right started in about 2015 when it became clear he needed to reinvent himself from the man who had several prominent liberal GOP Donors on speed Dial in order to mount a campaign statewide as a Republican.

If you are a social liberal, with rare exception, you are also very likely to be susceptible to government expanding tax increases. The democrats never go after Conservatives for the few votes they need to pass major legislation. This is a key theme to remember as Travis Allen’s supporters are already equivocating and trying preemptively to defend his record against the scrutiny they know is coming.

There is a second issue as it pertains to the Two Travis Allen’s you will get to know. Which one will govern? Will it be the moderate that got elected in 2012 or will it be the Conservative he is claiming to be in 2018? One thing has been a common theme for the duration: showing up late to events dressed in surfer gear when the rest of the candidates are early or on time dressed in Suits and Ties. (This recurred at a recent candidates forum in San Diego featuring all the democrats and Republicans polling above 3%)

So why did the California Pro-Life Council endorse John Cox over the alleged Arch-Conservative Travis Allen?

According to California ProLife scorecards and voting records, the other Republican candidate for Governor, Travis Allen, has a record of supporting abortion, and has been unwilling to uphold the Republican Party plank on Life.

Wait a minute!? I thought Travis Allen’s core supporters were those I fought alongside with to stop the liburalz from gutting the California GOP Platform?

For a recent example – on 1/20/2016 the Assembly passed a resolution Honoring Infanticide Abortion.

On Tuesday, the resolution passed the Assembly by a vote of 53-22, with four Members not recording a vote. During the floor debate before the vote, Assembly Members Shannon Grove, Jim Patterson, Marie Waldron and James Gallagher each gave spirited interventions in opposition to the resolution. Republicans Catharine Baker, Ling Ling Chang, and Brian Maienschein broke with their party to vote in favor of the proposal, while three Republicans had no votes recorded (Travis Allen, Kristin Olsen and David Hadley). Not a single Democrat opposed the resolution.

So, Travis Allen was counted with #NEVERTRUMPERS Kristen Olsen and David Hadley hiding from the resolution. Meantime, conservative warriors like Shannon Grove and James Gallagher were on the floor fighting. This is what should concern every Travis Allen apologist out there.

In the 2013 political cycle, Travis Allen was rated 47% by California Pro-Life Council (lower than some democrats) and 60% in 2015. Last I checked, when an abortion happens, the baby is 100% dead, so I am not sure how 47% or 60% is anything to be proud of.

Travis Allen and his supporters are deign to point out that John Cox is from Illinois (former Cook County GOP Chairman), as Ronald Reagan and Pete Wilson were both from Illinois. FYI: George Deukmejian is from New York and Jerry Brown is the ONLY Gov in the last 50 years from CA. At the same time they conveniently ignore things that are public record, such as this gem from 2007. You see, long before Travis Allen donated to democrats or ran to the left of Troy Edgar to win election in 2012, John Cox was getting attacked for being a social conservative.

My favorite find from ontheissues is this one:

Born poor on Chicago’s South Side to a mother who was raped by a father who split shortly thereafter (he points to his very existence as the reason he’s adamantly against abortion), Cox is a self-made man.

Oh no, there goes all the narratives in a big fat wave of reality. I should be real with Team Travis and tell them it only took a few minutes of surfing to find out the truth. Perhaps Travis Allen would be better served returning to his liberal roots for the sake of honesty as no amount of memes and facebook posts can alter the proven record.

Meet Laura Smith, candidate for Governor. Apparently, Laura is ready to burn Travis Allen’s House down. To her credit, she has properly identified Travis Allen for the fraud he is (from her Facebook Group):

If you are in this group attempting to promote a RINO such as Travis, you will be removed immediately. We do NOT support RINO’s. I will not support any candidate that blows smoke up people’s asses to gain their vote, hence the “farting sea shells” comment I make regularly about that scammer, Travis, and nor will I support any candidate who is NOT serious about this Governorship. Travis is running for TWO offices at this time and I printed the EVIDENCE! He does NOT care about YOU the citizen, nor is he authentic like I am. He is in this ONLY for the paycheck. Well, buddy, you must not have gotten the MEMO because when I am Governor, I am CUTTING ALL the career politicians’ paychecks by 50% AND sending the corrupt politicians off to prison for money laundering and embezzlement of the taxpayers money!!! I am not dropping out because people think they can pressure me to do so, and I will run this race as it is meant to be run – a long and fighting one!

If this woman had money to fund her campaign, it might make national news. Just watching Travis Suave squirm would be worth the price of admission.

Meanwhile, the largest county Republican Party in America is having an open forum for all Republican Governor Candidates to attend. Travis Allen just bailed out on it and hid.

Is Travis Allen afraid of the woman who mocks his Rico Suave lifestyle? It is obvious that she does not believe the recent poll that was done by USC with the assistance of Antonio Villariagosa staffer Mike Madrid (and other USC Alum with personal axes to grind) that shows Mr. Allen in 3rd Place behind Villariagosa and Newsom.

Laura Smith, undaunted by the army of facebook keyboard commandos recruited by the alleged CA4TRUMP team (that did not interview Laura smith or any other CA GOV Candidate before endorsing Allen), lit in to them again.

I left the Make California RED Again group, which WAS my originally coined term back before President Trump was elected. After being removed as Moderator, by Michael M. Dredd because he was afraid no one would like him anymore…oh boo hoo!!! Get a effing safety pin for your diaper dude! I have no need to be in a group that SUPPORTS TRAVIS ALLEN and CRIES like BABIES when Travis’ farting groupies get bent out of shape because I was a moderator of the group. I NEVER ONCE deleted posts or comments from that group, never an abuse of “power” – I do it here because I do NOT support FRAUDS like Travis or his groupies. So, if you support Travis, GTFO.

Laura unloaded again just yesterday:

So, I have been suggested that I need to “grow up” because I say Travis farts sea shells and his groupies are stuck to his ass blowing sand dollars! LMFAO!!! Here’s another one for ya…TELL THAT TO PRESIDENT TRUMP, who you all voted for. NEITHER Trump, NOR myself will EVER stop saying whatever we want!!! We’ll tweet it to high hell and back again!!! I am similar to Trump, I want the SEWER drained in Sacramento, and I will FIGHT to the end…KMWA.

If I get a chance to meet Laura Smith, I will probably give her a hug. Travis Allen has never really dealt with getting hammered in a campaign before. If running away from Laura Smith and the LAGOP is the way he handles conflict, he will fold like a cheap lawnchair and all the polls created by USC Alum won’t save him.

Travis Allen knows Dog Whistle Politics. However, now that the Dog Whistle has lit him up, Travis Allen is calling those with issues over his verified personal history “democrat plants”.

The San Jose Mercury News lit Travis Allen up for his history of contributions to democrats:

…in June 2011, Allen donated $500 to the campaign of Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Sherman Oaks, who made headlines this year for becoming the first member of Congress to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump.

Whoops, that’s not going to Make California Great Again.

In October 2010, Allen gave $250 to California Sen. Barbara Boxer, $250 to the state Democratic Party and $1,000 to Brown. The donation to Brown was made in the name of the financial planning firm Allen owns, Wealth Strategies Group. All of the other contributions to Democrats were made in his own name.

In 2012, when he ran for Assembly, he was the squish in the Primary. No one I knew endorsed him in Orange County.

Jon Fleischman wrote a nice piece in 2012 about Travis Allen’s donations. Say what you want, Jon Fleischman is an unassailable Conservative.

On the state side Allen gave donations to ACT Blue (a Dem PAC), Gavin Newsom for Lt. Governor, the California Democrat Party, and my personal favorite — his company gave $1,000 to the election of Jerry Brown for Governor one month before the 2010 election.

On the federal side Allen gave to the Democrat Party of Orange County (the same amount as he gave to the OC GOP, actually – some parity), the 4 Senate Victory Fund (which in turn made contributions to top Dem U.S. Senate targets, like Al Franken!), Brad Sherman for Congress, and (good grief) a check to help the re-election of Senator Barbara Boxer.

So, Travis Allen – was Jon Fleischman a democrat plant in 2012? Or will you man up and admit to the MAGA people you are deceiving that you are a liberal that registered Republican because of the area you ran in? Perhaps some honesty is in order, including explaining why the California Pro-Life Council endorsed John Cox and not you as an example of who the real Social Conservative is as well?

I will let my fellow democrat plant (Travis Allen’s words about his Republican opponents these days), Jon Fleischman sum it up:

Perhaps this is an intended consequence of Proposition 14 — Allen may feel that he can go out and make a case for Democrats to cross over and support him (I did check and Allen is running as a Republican).  I can certainly speak for myself, though, in saying that while I do not live in this district, if I did, I could not in good conscience vote for someone who thinks that elected and supporting these ultra-liberal politicians is a good idea.

Travis Allen has never been put to a serious test or through serious scrutiny before. Given how he is reacting to legitimate criticism of him, it is a clear indicator that he is unprepared for a hard-hitting governor’s race let alone the smash mouth politics and policy of actually being governor.

So Doug Ose is toying with a run for governor. Like Travis Allen, he is pro-choice and soft on the immigration issue. Like Travis Allen, you’d assume he would be playing to the Trump base. Unlike Travis Allen, Doug Ose was actually a Trump delegate to the Republican National Convention. This will create a bizarre dynamic between the two fighting for the Trump remnant in California.

As a Congressman, Doug Ose’s record is one that would fit in well with the Cap and Trade Republicans who claim that environmental extremism is the key to the promised land for the GOP. When he was not voting against the unborn victims of violence act 5 times, Ose voted for things like Mohair Subsidies and in opposition to drilling for oil at least 4 separate times. He also voted against even modest spending cuts and consistently for increased environmental regulations.

Currently, there are 2 GOP Spoilers running: a marginal candidate named Staysi Barth who has not raised enough money to file electronically and Travis Allen whose ceiling is no more than $500k. While Ose could write himself a check for $3-$5 Million Dollards, (remember, he set fire to $7.8 Million in 2008 attempting to win CA04 over McClintock) why would he?

Democrat John Chiang has raised a ton of money. Gavin any-two-three-four-or-moresome Newsom is the presumptive front-runner with a bank vault (and subject of sexual harassment allegations like many democrat officeholders). Delaine Eastin will get a few votes and a few dollars, and the erstwhile Rico Suave candidate (no, not Travis Allen) Antonio Villariagosa has a lot of money to spend as well…

Right now, with two also ran Republicans, John Cox has a decent chance of making the top-two runoff because of the four democrats with resources. With Doug Ose and several million of his own coming in to the race, the odds of 2 democrats making the fall runoff become an almost certainty. This will doom Republicans to depressed turnout once again with no candidates for major office on the fall ballot. This dynamic will make it difficult to defend the few congress seats we still have in California, while complicating efforts to get back over the 1/3 threshold.

No one that looks at the math can draw any other conclusion that a serious Doug Ose for Governor Campaign has the effect of eliminating Republicans from Contention all together.

Meanwhile, the GOP has no candidate for Controller or Treasurer. #EPICFAIL

Not to mention that I’d also question the class of it for reasons you will see in a bit.

Public Service Announcement: If you want to donate to a Republican Governor Candidate, you can click here to donate to John Cox.

Mr Cox has also enumerated a specific platform upon which he is running – you can see it for yourself. IT is actually easier to read and shorter in length than the bevy of links that Mr. Allen sent in his fundraising email.

What I know about Mr. Allen? He is a surfer. He is kind of Rico Suave. He obviously needs a new accountant and someone screwed up giving him advice on how to run his campaign.

Somehow the man who would be governor “forgot” to pay $42K in back taxes. While he did self-refer (right before declaring for governor) it makes him look like a surfer dude and not a governor dude.

Dude.

So, like I got this email from some surfer dude inviting me to a soiree and some other dudes house in Santa Ana? And he wants a wad of cash to be there?

But, Like why?

Dude.

There are all these links to newspapers, I mean who reads newspapers anymore? I was like trippin’ out on Tony Hawk’s latest stuff and reading up on the X-Games. Why is this surfer dude trying to be a politician?

Enter your intrepid blogger

Hey Surfer dudes, drop the bong.

Travis Suave thinks you should write him a $1000 check because he posted a list of media stories in his fundraiser invite.

There’s nothing else there.

I am seriously wondering if Travis Allen is thinking twice about his decision to leave AD72, especially now that it is becoming clear that Tyler Diep is a disaster.

In case you are wondering what the rest of the email looks like? I snipped out the RSVP info, because you don’t need it anyway. You can do better things with your hard-earned money like give it to John Cox, take your pet rat to the vet or pay your income taxes on time…

I shrunk the second part to minimize the brain damage it will cause the viewer.

This is what I call a marketing #EPICFAIL. There is no reason why to invest in Travis Allen at all in this email, and my pointing this out is not going to change future emails that much as this pattern has repeated itself.

This looks more like an ego driven move than anything about a serious campaign. Please Travis, just stop now.
