Congratulations to the Western Placer Unified School District and the Roseville Joint Union High School District – the voters sided with you and have delivered what both districts need in order to deal with the state funding issues. Measure D in Roseville carried with 61.5% and N slid by in Lincoln with 56.5%.

Let’s boil Measure M Down to brass tacks. #1 It is a tax increase and that is a huge dog whistle to deal with in ANY County. Kevin Hanley opposed this as payback to all of Bill Halldin’s supporters – yet in Placer SUP D5, it was the NIMBY’s and ENVIROS that led the opposition and it was devastatingly effective in an extremely high Dem turnout universe. Measure M failed by 10 points in Sup D5. Without Sup D5, it passes.

And that gets us to the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister Thomas N Hudson and his deputy and self styled retired CSI Investigator Deborah Jackson. While they were proud of the lying and deceitful way they rigged a Placer GOP Endorsement against Measure M, it did not matter. Ken Campbell’s editorials that the Lincoln News Messenger published did not matter.

Hudson’s Home District Sup D1, passed Measure M with over 70%. Campbell/Jackson’s home D2 passed it with over 69%. #EPICFAIL

D3 and D4 were in the 64 range. But, a split of D3 and D4 to the Rocklin and Roseville Parts of both show over 70% support for Measure M.

The bottom line? The alleged Conservatives (and lying / stretching the rules to “win” is not a Conservative Value) and their allies on the extreme left campaigned to the Auburn and Rural Areas to delay progress to Placer County.

That is correct, Thomas N Hudson, Ken Campbell and Deborah Jackson – time to roll a big fat one and put your tie-dye on. The three of you are the newest tools of the ENVIROS!

P.S. Deborah Jackson is running for Chairman of the Placer GOP, perhaps the Sierra Club will endorse her.

Let me start off with a data point. I am aware of the fact that there were phone banks for the Trump Campaign being run out of California that made a ton of calls. However, Tim Clark had little or nothing to do with them at all. Sources I have spoken to indicated to me that they received little or no direction after the initial connections were made to the technology to set them up.

I am also aware of several people that were operating on their own. There was no cohesion of effort and this led to a significant deterioration of volunteer efforts on the ground in California. No amount of spin over the estimated 2 million calls made from California on Trump’s behalf in other states can fix that. The focus of this post is on the disaster in California and Tim Clark’s epic failure to do his job.

When you combine the above with Clark’s admission to people about his focus being on John Moorlach, and the complaints of volunteers, the pattern becomes clear.

I was in Nevada in the weeks before the election. Few, if any people from California went to Reno to help the Trump effort. No one I spoke to on the ground there knew who Tim Clark was, despite the fact that Clark was emailing about “strike teams” and delivering Nevada for Trump. He did next to nothing is the only conclusion you could draw.

Tim Clark was originally hired to be Trump’s Western Region Chair. Trump lost Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico. Let that sink in. Paul Manafort hired Tim Clark and apparently Clark evaded detection when staff was turned over.

An additional data point is that county chairs I spoke to in the campaign effort indicated that they would get last-minute urgent requests for information with less than 24 hours to respond. Since many people do not check email every day, often times these deadlines were missed. Insiders in California know Mr. Clark as “Last Minute Tim”, this pattern is consistent again. The volunteers deserved better – given the $119K paid to him you’d think that there would have been a more professional effort.

latinos-with-dtjHow Bad did Trump lose California?

As of the writing of this blog, it was 4.2 million votes. This spread of 31% is the second worst of any state in the union. (Hawaii)

The GOP lost 3 Assembly Seats, 1 State Senate Seat and scores of down-ticket races. This means that the democrats could now gut Proposition 13 without needing a Republican vote to do so.

When you see the Typo-Filled site that bears Donald Trump’s name and logo on it – regardless of who maintained it – you have to wonder why no one noticed the typos or the lack of interest in the site. Why didn’t Tim Clark say anything about this site? Why were these errors allowed to stay?

Why was there no county chair in dark red Placer County?

But, let’s dive in to the numbers a little deeper…

As of right now – Texas with 1/3 less population than California has delivered more votes for Trump than California. Florida with half the population of California delivered more votes for Trump than California.

coalitions-page-with-143-total-viewsMitt Romney lost California by about 2.2 million votes in 2012. Trump will lose California by almost double that, and worse that extra 2 million votes is the national difference in the National Popular Vote.

The Mitt Romney team did some basic outreach in order to make sure that existing Republicans at least voted for Romney.

A commenter attacked this blog for pointing out things like the 147 total views on the coalitions page – citing another official site with 40,000 followers, many of whom live outside CA. Even if all 40K were inside CA, what does that get someone in terms of a Campaign? Not Much.

Since I am a numbers guy, I have realized that the only way you could lose California by 4.2 Million Votes is if REPUBLICANS voted for Hillary in statistically significant numbers.

Let me expand on that… Republicans are 27% of the vote in CA. The final total is around 31.7%. This means that Trump only got 4-5% above registration. Democrats are about 45% of the total in CA. Clinton will be around 62.5%. This means that Clinton will get 17-18% above registration.

The only way that could happen is if Non-Partisan and Independent voters went for Clinton 80-20. This in not statistically possible. Nationally, Trump WON independents by 8%.

It is impossible to tell how many Republicans voted for Clinton in CA or left their ballots blank. However, it is safe to assume that with a county like Orange having a 21% shift between Romney in 2012 and Trump in 2016 the the results of Mr. Clark’s failure to even perform the basic functions of a campaign in California was catastrophic:

Last minute demands of Volunteers.

Last minute disaster on the Trump delegation team that made national news

Extremely high turnover in volunteer leadership

Volunteers told they have no access to Mr. Clark

While Millions of calls came out of California, the patterns show that Mr. Clark can not take credit for it. It may well be that Mr. Clark’s only accomplishment is his part in the National Convention despite his failure with the delegation selection process.

With hundreds of thousands of Republicans in California voting for Clinton and the residual damage across the board, this is the legacy of Tim Clark.

Trump FEC Filings Linked here, here, here, here, here – they are set to the correct page so you can scroll to see the wasted money for yourself. As of the 10/31 FEC filing, Tim Clark and his Clark Group were paid $119,032.55 in total. (His daughter also got $6,244.08 as well, however, that is outside the scope of this blog series)

I have written ad naseum about what a disaster Tim Clark has been. For those of you that cared deeply about Donald Trump’s election, the next series of posts are dedicated to those in Northern Nevada and all over California that were abandoned by Tim Clark.

IN the words of Tim Clark’s daughter to people within the College Republican ranks, “We are focused on John Moorlach”. While Donald Trump was getting slaughtered by 31%, the SECOND WORST MARGIN in a State in America, Tim Clark by the admission of his daughter was focused on a SAFE STATE SENATE SEAT IN ORANGE COUNTY.

Right next door to John Moorlach’s safe State Senate seat is SD29, lost by about 2,000 votes to a democrat. The Democrats owe Tim Clark a thank you letter for their Prop 13 proof supermajority!

Orange County went for Hillary Clinton by 12%, a swing of 21(!) points from the 9 point win Mitt Romney got in 2012. Tim Clark? He got paid $119k by Donald Trump while he was focused on John Moorlach.

typo-and-no-placerI’ve spoken to several grassroots leaders across California. While Tim Clark was ripping Donald Trump off for $119,000, these people, many of whom were working on their first campaign ever, were left to fend for themselves.

Some county chairs were left ordering supplies from Rodney Stanhope, whose buttons were actually worn by the delegation in Cleveland.

I was told by more than one person that people down the chain of command were told to never attempt to contact Mr. Clark about anything ever. I was also told that due to the unprofessional and undisciplined operation that the turnover was horrendous. Clark himself was responsible for a lot of it as his well established pattern is to take over operations, force existing people out and replace them with his own people. He attempted to do the same in California, but a few of the people survived Tim’s purge because they had relationships beyond Paul Manafort (who was responsible for Clark’s hire).

Perhaps Tim Clark’s pattern is why the State of CA Website had not made it to 4000 total view as of the writing of this post? Perhaps this is why Placer County – one of the reddest remaining counties in California HAD NO LISTED CHAIR? It seems to match the delegation disaster, Clark made sure that he kept everyone off the list he disliked and then left several gaps that others were left scrambling to fill.

Look at the screenshot: Napa chair Janet Kirtlink’s name is misspelled on the site. Is this what $119k got Trump? Tim Clark ripped him off.

The California Republican Party from top to bottom get screwed over by Tim Clark at a time when the Trump effort needed leadership. Instead, Clark was in John Moorlach’s State Senate District hauling down more consulting fees for a safe seat race and by virtue of the evidence I have gathered, was doing less than nothing for Donald Trump. At least Mitt Romney’s crew made sure the basics were done in California and Romney’s loss was half what Trump’s was. (more on the grotesque nature of the defeat when the results are final)

What other conclusion than Tim Clark ripped Donald Trump off can you draw?

As of the writing of this blog, Tim Clark is not back on state payroll, but the only conclusion you could draw is that Clark is attempting to get his Chief of Staff job back. If John Moorlach is seriously considering rehiring Tim Clark he’d be a fool to do so, thousands of well meaning Trump believers use Clark’s name in place of bowel movements… and once they figure out how much Clark ripped off Donald Trump for they will be even angrier.

Similar to the whiny, suckly little snowflakes (some of whom are being paid by George Soros) rioting and destroying property because Donald J Trump won, some whiny baby in Rocklin filed a complaint over the well-sourced, ethically-financed and devastating hit piece on Camille Maben.

Here is a copy of the letter from the FPPC.

It is also possible that Rocklin’s self-appointed Perry Mason and stalker of Joe Patterson, Connie McLennan filed the complaint as she seems to like using the legal system to gain political advantage. The Placer IR did after all endorse and mail on behalf of Mr. Patterson.

My first instinct is that the complaint was flied by a whiner with an over-inflated sense of their own importance which is why I gravitated toward Peter Hill as the culprit.

There is no merit to this complaint at all. In fact, the letter does not even give an indication of what alleged violations occur. (BTW, the FPPC gets to violate due process by virtue of the way they are run – including hiding the identity of the accuser)

This is the reality of California Politics now – if you take on Democrats in the public arena people like Peter Hill, Connie McLennan or others will threaten to sue you, file FPPC Complaints and of course will destroy property, riot and file recount requests in the name of “democracy”.

I will issue this message to Camille Maben – you now have a permanent target on your back courtesy of your friends who filed this complaint. This is how I deal with bullies, you are a far-left idealogue who lied in public about your intentions to serve. Regardless of how many of your fellow liberals seek to abuse the system to try to protect you, I am patient and persistent.

blog-with-no-postsI have been in contact over the last several months with a ton of Trump Volunteers. Few, if any have anything good to say about Tim Clark.

As of the time I am writing this email, Donald Trump’s historic loss in California is over 4 Million Votes. The ripple effect down the ballot all over the state has been felt as Republicans were unseated everywhere. I will dive in to that later.

I have been told by reliable capitol sources that John Moorlach is going to mess over his current Chief of Staff and rehire Tim Clark. (If he has not already done so)

This is people’s exhibit A for the demise of the Republican Party in California. Tim Clark did less than nothing for Donald Trump and John Moorlach did less than nothing for the Orange County Republican Party while Young Kim and Ling Ling Chang were defeated in their elections.

Attached is a screenshot of the Team Trump California WordPress site blog page. This was announced in an email sent out with Tim Clark’s name on it. (I have been told that Clark did not even write most of the emails that had his name on them)

The blog has no entries at all and 48 lifetime visits. This is the world of campaigns run by Tim Clark.

I had been told by several Republican activists that Tim Clark said his primary effort was the re-election of John Moorlach – said while he was allegedly on Donald Trump’s Payroll. One could draw the conclusion that Clark was maintaining his state paycheck while the State of California was caught in a blue forest fire.

To a lesser extent John Moorlach, but to a major extent Tim Clark bears a lot of responsibility for the democrat super-majority and their significant gains in local non-partisan offices that occurred in 2016.

One can not simply explain away a presidential candidate losing a single state by more than double the margin of loss nationally. However, when Tim Clark is involved, you can. Stay tuned.
