If you live in California, you remember Leland Yee, convicted of Gun-Running. You remember Charles Calderon, who got caught committing fraud. You also remember Roderick Wright, he of the I don’t live here brand of fraud.

All were forced from office via conviction, not by the feckless voters of California.

Linked here is a sampling of some past election fraud cases as compiled by the Heritage Foundation. The pdf is pretty long.

As you may remember, the democrat attorney general of Pennsylvania was forced to resign and is now in prison for corruption. I do believe her spectacular flame-out was a great reinforcement for the “Drain the Swamp” message.

Her successor is now investigating the results for the 197th House District where a democrat write in defeated a Green and a Republican on the ballot. It appears that the democrats were out strong-arming people, harvesting ballots and the like.

The irony? The 197th District Special Election was supposed to be to replace someone who was forced to resign because of a felony conviction!

In March, (Renee) Acosta reportedly admitted to helping Renee Tartaglione, her former boss at the Juniata Mental Health Clinic, embezzle thousands of dollars from the publicly funded Fairhill clinic between 2008 and 2012, before she took public office.

And this felon Renee Acosta REPLACED ANOTHER DEMOCRAT FELON!

Acosta, who awaits a January sentencing, was first elected to office in 2014, when she defeated incumbent J.P. Miranda, who pleaded guilty to a corruption charge last year.

Not to be outdone, a local prosecutor in Philadelphia… a democrat, is well… on his way to prison, too.

Read the 50 page, 23 count indictment against this “Star” of the PA Democrat Party.

This sort of stuff is commonplace.

Seattle’s Mayor, Ed Murray… yup, a democrat. Going down.

And, how about another crooked, democrat, Mayor?

Jury selection began Monday morning in the election fraud trial of a former Eatonville mayor.

Anthony Grant and two of his campaign workers — Mia Nowells and James Randolph — are accused of manipulating voters so that they would cast absentee ballots for him during the 2015 mayoral election.

The trio faces numerous charges, including voter fraud, attempting to vote with a fraudulent ballot, illegally marking ballots, corruptly influencing voting and violating the Voter Protection Act.

So, it should come as no surprise that the National Democrat Party is getting ROCKED by scandal and lawsuits – to be continued…

Here is the original story linked here from Expresspros.com.

Among the Unemployed, Clinton Beat Trump 35%-25%; Did Not Vote is 34% (3% Johnson 1% Stein)

39% Say Trump Will Have a Positive Impact Creating Jobs; 35% Say Negative Impact 

58% Say It Would Be Easier to Find Work if there was Less Illegal Immigration

Majority Supports Repeal of Affordable Care Act

By a Small Margin, Preference is for Government Spending over Corporate Tax Cuts

Note the spending versus Tax Cuts Number was 52-48, meaning with education, that number could change easily.

Healthcare, Immigration and Tax Cuts

The unemployed were asked “Are you currently receiving health insurance as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA also referred to as Obamacare)?”

  • 20 percent said yes
  • 72 percent said no

Jobless Americans were asked to state whether they agree or disagree with various current policy issues:

I am in favor of repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA also referred to as Obamacare).

  • Agree (net): 57 percent
    • Agree completely: 24 percent
    • Agree a lot: 9 percent
    • Agree somewhat: 14 percent
    • Agree a little: 10 percent
  • Do not agree at all: 43 percent

It would be easier to get a job if there was less illegal immigration in the United States.

  • Agree (net): 58 percent
    • Agree completely: 18 percent
    • Agree a lot: 12 percent
    • Agree somewhat: 13 percent
    • Agree a little: 15 percent
  • Do not agree at all: 42 percent

While this poll has mixed numbers from this group in terms of weather they Trust Donald Trump to help them find a job – it shows that they “Get It” about Obamacare and Illegal Immigration and it’s direct effect on their lives.

This is something to think about.

Separately, take a look at this focus group of Pennsylvania Democrats.

CBS’ Face The Nation’s John Dickerson spoke with Pennsylvania voters, where they confirmed what the ABC News/Washington Post polls illuminated a coupled weeks ago: the Democratic Party is out of touch.

One voter, a lifelong Democrat, said that his party is not only out of touch, but they have zero interest in remedying the situation. They complain about how Putin and Wikileaks screwed them over (they didn’t), but added that what’s glossed over is that the Wikileaks document dumps showed how Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment were a bunch of liars. That’s really why liberals are upset; their dirty laundry was aired for all to see. Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Clinton’s primary opponent, would probably be the most infuriated, as it confirmed that senior staffers at the Democratic National Committee were actively trying to find ways to undermine the insurgent campaign.

Dickerson asked if there was one story that they’re sick and tired of hearing, which drew a response from a female voter, and it was the allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

“We will go with Russia, okay? Because that was one of the things that is driving me absolutely mad. “I think Russia has already been proven to not have had any impact on our elections, they did not, you know, drive from polling place to polling place and, you know, hoodwink the machines and whatever,” she said. This woman also said that the obsessive nature Democrats have with this story makes them look desperate.

You’d think Quinnipiac – known as the Q-Poll would take a long, hard look at their sampling after 2016. However, it is clear that the Q-Poll has an agenda. This time, it is clear to create a false narrative about Trump and his approval ratings.

The poll claimed that Trump was underwater 36-58. It also claimed that the #1 word most associated with Trump was Idiot.

The Sample? 24% Republican, 34% Democrat, 35% Indie (2-1 Dem Lean), 8% other. Note that “Other” got 5.1% of the vote in 2016. The 2016 result was D +3.6 Turnout.

This sample assumes that less than 1/4 of the electorate is Republican and that the “Other” Category is 60% higher than it was just 6 months ago. By using left-leaning independents, which suggests that this sample would skew the result 12-15 points easily to the left.

Also note, they interviewed voters in Spanish and used REGISTERED voters. When you do Spanish calls and registered voters – both skew results to the left in addition.

Spanish-speaking voters (legal and illegal) favor democrats 8-1.

Registered Voter polls historically lean 2-3 points to the left, as the super low propensity voters tend to be poorer, more likely single and more likely to be on welfare than the rest of the electorate. By using registered voters, you are bringing people that are very unreliable and uninformed in the the polling sample that could also be influenced by the way the questions are asked.

It is my opinion that the motivation for this is to fool democrat donors in to giving money for losing races and an attempt to try to scare Republican donors off. This was consistent in 2016 when the polls were way off on the election.

Here are some examples of how poorly Quinnipiac did in 2016:

Quinnipiac said Donald Trump was going to lose North Carolina and Florida. They missed NC by 5.7 and Florida by 2.2. They underestimated Trump’s win in Ohio by 3.1.

Q-Poll had Clinton winning by as much as 14 in the summer.

Look no further than the democrats chasing an R+20 seat in Kansas. While they caught the feckless (now Congressman) flat-footed, they spent $2 million to lose. They actually believe these biased polls.

The democrats are now in to John Ossoff, a 30 year old staffer that lives with a Woman he is not married to in Georgia, a whopping $22 Million. Take a look at this ad from the Republicans highlighting the millions poured in to him by California donors.

The democrats are pouring money in to Montana. They are claiming that Rob Quist, a cowboy performer in nudist camps is within 6 Points of the Republican candidate to replace now Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. Montana went for Trump by 20 points and has an at-large congressional district. (MT-AL is what they call it)

The media was bragging that the Omaha Mayor’s Race was going to be a referendum on Donald Trump – similar to all the other elections lost since Trump got inaugurated the Democrats spent a ton of money and lost. The Republican won by 7 points. Clinton won Omaha by 10. NE-02 went for Trump by 3.3 and famously was the first time a state split its’ electors in 2008 when Obama carried it.

Add to this, the democrats went in search of wins in Blue States in state level special elections. There were four failures as of March.

Only one seat has flipped. Won by a Republican.

Actual election results are telling the real story about Donald Trump’s effectiveness and popularity. Remember, the same media that is pushing the Russia did it Lie will carry rigged, fake polls forever.

I had a very hard time coming over to Donald Trump.

The biggest issue I had were his early supporters, many of whom I saw as fringe wackos, malcontents and otherwise people out of the mainstream. There were exceptions as some long time political allies (and friends) of mine were with Trump from the start.

However, Ann Coulter, Paul Joseph Watson and others whose existence is in an esoteric part of the universe they call their own were the early sirens of Make America Great Again. Mike Cernovich, Milo and others were people I’d never heard of before until the national media started focusing on them to marginalize Donald Trump. Now they are all re-marginalizing themselves a mere 3.5 months after Trump was sworn in.

In the campaign of 2016, one by one these folks were being proven right for supporting Trump and true about their conspiracy theories as a result of events, the behavior of John Kasich, Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney and others on the campaign trail, the revelations of Wikileaks that provided a window in to the inner workings of the Dems, Obama’s temper tantrum in his waning days in office just to muck things up and of course the Russia did it gas-lighting operation created by President Obama weaponizing the intelligence services and using them against Trump and his team.

I’ve written ad naseum about the fake news and the rigged polls being done by the national media establishment. I knew Trump was going to win as I was eviscerating polling samples daily.

Donald Trump knew what to do in order to take center stage. He became a voice for everyone’s anger (even many that voted for Hillary Clinton, by the way) and parlayed that in to successful run for President. People focused on Trump’s bombast while ignoring what was happening strategically.

Trump was outspent 2-1. 90+% of all media about him was negative. Trump beat 16 GOP Contenders. Some in the GOP establishment recruited a Judas Goat, Evan McMuffin to try and steal Utah, Wyoming and Idaho from Trump. Even today, humiliated candidate John Kasich is trying to raise money in the waning days of his governorship so he can run against Trump in 2020, while sending endless emails criticizing Trump at every chance.

The critics that irritate me the most are not the National Media (who I call whores for the left), the #Triggered Democrats who are committing ritual suicide hellbent to “get trump”, and not even the Jeb Bush / John Kasich isolated fringe of the establishment. The critics that irritate me the most are the “Chicken Little” Malcontents that were key early supporters of Trump who have been screeching every time trump deviates slightly from the path they think he should take in order to govern.

I’ve coined a term for them – wrist slashers.

They cut their wrists in a virtual form of political suicide without pausing to wait for the other shoe to drop. I’ve become a complete Donald Trump sycophant not because I agree with everything he does, but because he is willful, deliberate and is one of the most effective leaders I’ve ever seen.

I’ve written ad-naseum about what Trump has accomplished in such a short time in office, but I want to focus on a few items directly for the benefit of the wrist-slashers (as this is the proof of Trump’s amazing effectiveness):

  1. Trump shot 59 Tomahawk Missiles at Syria because of a chemical weapon attack on a hospital. The screeching wrist-slashers claimed Ivanka Trump talked her dad in to doing it, others like Coulter and Watson went in to a meltdown claiming Trump had been sucked in by the NWO Globalists. The Media and Democrats were in a state of confusion offering grudging praise. The Result? Iran, Turkey and Russia are now setting up safe zones in Syria. Refugee Crisis Solved. Assad Problem Solved. Screeching anti war sirens silenced as the same 1,000 Americans there before are still there now, no more, no less.
  2. Trump sent a fleet to North Korea and Anti Missile defense systems to South Korea in response to the little fatso trying to launch ballistic missiles. The American Media responded by gleefully reporting that the fleet was somewhere else as their desire to “Get Trump” caused them to undermine Trump’s strategy. Despite the best attempts of the media and the screeching sirens who were once again cutting their wrists in a paranoid World War III fantasy, there is no war and the Chinese and Russians now look poised to take out the trash in North Korea. Despite the withering criticism, the Chinese started negotiating with the US immediately due to Donald Trump’s very real leadership and putting everything on the table, including trade.
  3. The hard right freaked out over the spending bill. They claimed that: A) it funded planned parenthood, B) it did not fund the wall and C) it lacked the spending cuts of the proposed budget. They would have rather had a government “shutdown” now at a time when it would not play out well. The reality? There is a $1.5 Billion down payment on the wall and this “spending bill” is the first time in 50 years that the federal government has not increased overall spending in any bill.
  4. The AHCA. You’d swear that the RINO’s won everything. It was a $1 Trillion Tax Cut and it de-funded Planned Parenthood to the tune of 86%.

When the facts are aggregated, the flaky, malcontented (as in never satisfied) fringe early Trump supporters are showing their real colors. They don’t know how to govern. They don’t understand governance and are unable to digest facts, patterns of strategy.

You’d think that SCOTUS Justice Neil Gorsuch would be enough? Betsy DeVos gutting Common Core? Illegal Immigration down 60+%, deportations up 35%? Real support for law enforcement? Real investigations and accountability at the VA? Going after Presidential Land Grabs? Pipelines? 15000 more Ice Agents? Overturning industry destroying regulations by the dozen?

Donald Trump continues to lead. The question to the wrist-slashers is this: If you keep cutting your wrists (figuratively) every time something goes wrong in your mind, will anyone pay attention to you and will you be able to make any difference when the left finally regroups?

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.
