Man on FireKen Campbell. I’ve written about him ad naseum.

Ken Campbell is a coward. He talks trash in private and prefers to let people like the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister swing the sword.

Ken Campbell is permanently butt-hurt over being forced to resign as Chairman of the Placer GOP. Many years ago, after a slew of op-eds in the local cat pan liner attacking the late Kathy Lund, Susan Rohan, then supervisor Bruce Kranz, then supervisor Ted Gaines, Kirk Uhler and a slew of others he was forced to resign.

The real issue is that Ken melted down over Measure H, an advisory measure about development in 2004. If you try to build anything anywhere near Ken Campbell’s multi-million dollar ranch, he won’t like you very much. So, it makes sense that Ken would join the coalition of the insane in opposing Measure M.

Mr. Campbell has also been prone to preforming truth abortions repeatedly in his op-eds. But, this is part of the package when you live the Ken Campbell experience.

But why isn’t Ken running for Placer GOP Chairman? Why is it Deborah Jackson? I believe it goes beyond Ken’s Cowardice. Many years ago, Ken Campbell served on the board of the Capitol Resource Institute with none other than David Stafford Reade.

David Stafford Reade is a gun for hire and is a power broker within the CA GOP. He is also State Senator Jim Nielsen’s Chief of Staff. David Reade was involved in the massive expenditure of money in 2012 and again in 2016 to attempt to elect capitol staff and others loyal to Reade to Placer GOP Central Committee. Reade managed to direct about $120k in total by my calculations over the two cycles.

The 2016 Placer GOP Central Committee election did not go as planned. People that Reade once used in 2012 in his effort to eliminate political enemies were discarded in the 2016 effort. (this is felony stupid)

It is clear to me that the 2018 election will bring retirements and a deep, inner need for Reade to attempt to control party endorsements in order to influence the elections in 2018. (more on that later) Ken Campbell and David Reade remain friends to this day, in fact, they sat together at the 2016 candidate forum for AD06.

Given that I have seen Ken Campbell turn on people multiple times, and his relationship with David Stafford Reade, I do not believe that he stands up for Deborah Jackson at the moment of truth.

If you have any doubts about Ken Campbell’s voracity – consider that recently the CRA’s Box Wine Guzzling Information Minister Thomas N Hudson sent out an email attacking Courage Worldwide, a leading Sex-Trafficking charity. The State of California because they are bureaucratic morons are attempting to treat Courage like a foster care agency and are trying to shut them down. Almost on queue, an extremely biased story appeared in the Sacramento Bee that I believe was planted by the state agency accusing Courage of being Fraudulent.

Tom Hudson, whose twin idols are money and being right jumped on this Bee Article calling Courage a Bogus Charity. Ken Campbell is a major donor to Courage Worldwide, and has physically traveled to their facility in Africa.

Has Campbell attempted to defend Courage from Tom Hudson’s attack? No. Anyone who aligns themselves with Ken Campbell can expect the same courage from him on their behalf.

Strange and sad things happen when you form a coalition of the deranged and enraged.

71412749Hey everyone! Did you know that the Placer GOP is having an endorsing convention?

Please note that if you support Measure M, you will be subjected to ridicule and scorn by the Tea-Soaked fringe of the Placer GOP for heresy. If you are a Republican Running for Office and you want to enjoy an inquisition – you, too can join the Placer GOP on 9/17!

And just who are the revolutionaries, these patriots in said junta?

One Deborah Jackson – she of the Placer County Tea Party, and a donor to non-Republicans seeking to unseat Republicans wants to be your next County GOP Chairman!

Deborah Jackson, the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister (Thomas N Hudson) and the crazed Ken Campbell  (who is a failed former GOP Chair) are the leaders of the Placer GOP Lynch Mob. They also include luminaries like Crazy Ed Rowen and Damien Fussell who was paid $500 a month by 6th AD also-ran Kevin Hanwey.

Also listed amongst the pack of rabid dogs is my favorite AD06 failure, suicide barbie. Yes, the one and only Suzanne Jones who was recently removed from the Granite Bay MAC. (It is felony stupid when you’re out walking precincts for the opponent of the man who put you on the MAC, especially when said opponent was a the same non-Republican moron Deborah Jackson donated to)

I did find out that the Placer County Planning Commission approved the 55 unit housing development that borders the property of the failed non-Republican moron. That development was the entire reason he ran for county supervisor and Suicide Barbie railed against it in a vain attempt to get votes from anyone that could tolerate listen to her.

The parallels to this fall are also there. The CRA’s box-wine guzzling information minister wrote the ballot argument against Measure M and to no one’s surprise (well anyone whose IQ is above plant life, anyway) the argument mentioned the Supervisor Pay Raise in it!

Nice to know that even the allegedly conservative watchdogs, the keepers of all that is small government and lower tax aren’t about a little… (check that, a lot) of self serving revenge. They sound like RINO’s to me. No true conservative would prostitute principle to base an entire effort on revenge.

So if you want to relieve traffic congestion in Placer County, you’d better wear a flak jacket, because Ken Campbell will send mean emails out about you. If you believe in economic development and removing the barriers (namely I-80/65 traffic) to business relocating to Placer County, beware because Tom Hudson does not want more people coming to Placer County. If you recognize that the state government has been so badly broken, with budget deficits and insane spending decisions then conclude that Placer County needs to take matters in to its’ own hands… then beware because Deborah Jackson and a band of keyboard commandos will excoriate you (on Facebook or the easiest medium they can access) as being as un-American as that idiot quarterback from the lamest team in football who refuses to stand for the National Anthem.

Yes, you too can have a front row seat in Placer County’s game of thrones where a pack of rabid dogs seek to re-write a psychological manual in their journey to achieve ideological perfection. The rest of us will vote yes on measure M.

The first clue there may be a problem was that the idea was allegedly suggested by NBC that Trump attend a candidate forum hosted by Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. The Forum is Scheduled for September 7th.

Just who is IAVA – a look at their IRS Form 990 gives us some clues.

Look at their major donors – several foundations whhose websites show their tilt towards coddling criminals (aka Justice Involved People), social justice and green initiatives.

You can look up the four family foundations listed and see for yourself their carefully worded websites that yield several left-wing talking points. A search of the principals on Open Secrets type campaign sites yields the predictable donations to a variety of Democrat Candidates for Federal Office.

You can look at the website of IAVA and if you read carefully – you will see that they advocate for more Government programs for Veterans and have a section for LGB veterans. Most veterans groups do not go that far.

Some more skeptical people may dismiss my above statements because I am a Donald Trump supporter or because they may not see the same left-wing buzzwords in the information that are so clear to me.

CaptureI decided to some research on the Consultant that this group pays $140k a year to.

Mr. Dorman is a left-wing liberal democrat whose past list of clients indicate that he is a consultant that you hire if you are a front group for the left.

So – you have a veteran’s group that lists a who’s who of donors from the left, with a San Francisco based MoveOn.Org Alum as a $140k a year consultant, and a website replete with a liberal grab bag of social justice initiatives holding a candidate forum? Trump may as well request Donna Brazille to moderate.

Oh and leave us not forget, they are a 501(c)3 non profit with an associated 501(c)4. Cozy, I bet Lois Lerner fast-tracked their applications as opposed to all those right-leaning Vets Groups.

This seems to be as objective as CNN’s election reporting. I am not sure how Donald Trump’s campaign staff allowed him to get roped in to this as this seems like a setup.

My source for this tip was a Gary Johnson supporter who asked that I remind people that this group has not invited Gary Johnson to participate in their September 7th Forum. If you are so inclined, you can sign their petition.

The slow motion #trainwreck continues in the leper colony known as CRA. It appears that Alice Khosravy, the CRA’s Black Widow is slowly starting to weed out CRA Board Members.

Craig was described as a “Disgusting, Sweaty Pig” by Khosravy deputy Wendy Albright (she of the $10000 FPPC Fine). (I have the screenshots of the texts somewhere, but how could I forget this?)

When I first heard the news, I was hoping that maybe some time away from Politics would help Craig deal with the pious, pompous, self-righteous arrogant streak that has characterized him for years. Maybe a more balanced and mature Alexander would transform from a pariah to someone who used their talents for productive good.

Then I read his resignation email. While he had valid points, the highlights of his character flaws were evident.

Craig pointed out that the CRA needs to get younger and get more members. Alice and crew will never let the CRA grow, a larger organization will be more difficult to control. The two most recent CRA units are fraudulent shells in my opinion and are already beset with infighting.

Craig Alexander was indeed ideally suited for CRA. It appears that Craig has come out on the losing end of an internal pissing match and has decided to take his ball and go home. Such is life in the ineffective debating society known as CRA.

The CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister Tom Hudson – who was recently at the CRA’s OC BBQ (attended by roughly 30 people despite representing 7 remaining CRA units) – is finding himself increasingly isolated.

Hudson, as you may recall is the executive director of a shell organization that is effectively a PAC that endorses and does the usual pay-for-play crap that “Republican Taxpayer Groups” do. While Hudson is emptying the boxes of wine at home, his business partner Mike Spence got in to a major accident and appears to be in major trouble.

Craig Alexander was, until yesterday, Tom Hudson’s firewall and biggest ally in the CRA.

Hudson is privately disdained by most people on the CRA’s board that I know. Most of them lack the character to be honest and open about it until, of course the opportunity arises to participate in the next purge. The Game of Thrones has nothing on the CRA – because at least some of the characters portrayed in the Game of Thrones can function in normal life.

On the heels of drawing a 5th Entrant info the Roseville Joint Union High School race who has no chance of winning and whose entry will make it easier for a bad incumbent to get re-elected… several local City Council Races have similar dynamics with marginal candidates filing at all different times, including late.

Unlike with the entry of the loser in the RJUHSD race, none of these late entrants appear to have been recruited by the Placer GOP. It is common for City Council Races to draw “Extra” candidates – kind of like Assembly races.

The Roseville City Council Race drew one late entrant – Maxine Sarmiento who is known to some in the area. She has told people she thinks she can win because she is female and there are a bunch of men running. I guess sexism only applies if it is men deriding women? Yes – there are a measurable amount of voters that only vote for women, but I’ve never seen enough of it to tip the balance of a race.

Your contestants for Roseville City Council Are:

Bonnie Gore (Incumbent Republican)
John Allard (Republican Former Councilmember)
Phil Ozenick (Republican Former Councilmember)
Richard Rocucci (Republican Former Councilmember)
Scott Alvord – Democrat

Alvord is disqualified for his support of Hillary Clinton via his registration. I have reason to believe that Richard Rocucci is a Hillary Clinton supporter as well by virtue of his affiliation with many democrats in the past. I will have to ask him.

I have known Phil Ozenick for years. He is 92 years of age and should be living out the twilight of his life writing his memoirs and not running for office. The only man I have ever seen run for office in his 90’s was Strom Thurmond who retired at age 100. Phil Ozenick is not Strom Thurmond.

My second issue with Mrs. Ozenick and Rocucci is their terrible record on development. Rocucci has been known to respond to good arguments and to do the right thing on development, my understanding is that Mr. Ozenick has pretty much opposed every major development in Roseville for the last 30 years.

At this time – I am only recommending John Allard and Bonnie Gore.

Rocklin City Council:

This is a truly bizarre situation. Diana Ruslin moved to Georgia, opening a seat up for an appointment as the vacancy occurred after the window to declare a two-year-seat election. Several of the existing councilmembers have made it clear their preference to appoint Ken Broadway to the vacant seat.

Broadway was considered the top candidate for the ensuing election, before Ruslin’s move.

George Magnusen retired as well, ending his long tenure on the Rocklin City Council – a move that all but guaranteed Broadway’s election.

The lack of clarity has brought several candidates in to the race, liberal democrat Mike Mattos whose whole campaign is centered around public transit, a Michelle Vass who lives in an apartment and community activist and Republican Activist Joe Patterson.

Some in Rocklin are upset over Patterson’s entry in to the race. With Ken Broadway seemingly due to be appointed on 9/14 – Patterson’s entry in to the City Council Race gives the voters a sane alternative to Mattos who would have been a near shoo-in without another viable alternative.

Your Candidates are:

Incumbent Republican Dave Butler
Incumbent Republican Greg Janda
Republican Ken Broadway
Republican Joe Patterson
Michelle Vass
Democrat Mike Mattos

I have a long-standing relationship with Joe Patterson dating to his days in the California GOP. He will be a great councilmember.

Lincoln City Council:

Lincoln is still a mess. The fire station that I posted pictures of many years ago being shut down, opened and got shut down again and may be open again. Nevertheless, it is a poster child for the woes of Lincoln.

Short Sale LincolnLincoln is growing again, no thanks to Spencer Short, who has consistently opposed the developments of every developer except one. Short is the only remaining councilmember from the days before the market crash and some of the current issues related to poor planning of the past can be laid at his feet. Needless to say, Short’s contribution to solving the issues of the past is lynching the city manager, attacking city staff and stabbing several people in the back.

Short needs to go.

There are an astounding 7 candidates on the ballot for this 3 seat race.

My choices are Paul Joiner, Peter Gilbert (who have teamed up with Gabriel Hydrick to save the hide of development time and again over the attempts of Spencer Short to throttle it) and Planning Commissioner Dan Karleskint.

Lincoln needs a short sale.

Loomis and Colfax did not make the ballot.

This leaves Auburn.

Bill Kirby and Keith Nesbitt filed for re-election. They will face a stiff challenge from local businesswoman Cheryl Maki. There are two other entrants in to the race as well. I really have no strong opinion on this race as Auburn may as well be 1000 miles away.

Mike Holmes was unseated from Auburn Council in 2014, and this may have invited the challenges in this 2016 race. Undaunted, Holmes is running against Donna Silva for Auburn City Treasurer. That should be an entertaining race.

Gotta love local politics.
