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, Villariagosa 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.

We had written here about the Sacramento Bee and their anti-christian rampage against Courage Worldwide. The Bee, hiding behind the pen of a pulitzer prize winning activist liberal reporter attacked Courage Worldwide several times.

It is the belief of this blog that the Bee was attempting to put them out of business. The Bee downplayed the facts related to overzealous bureaucrats and incompetent bureaucrats and highlighted everything they could to make Courage look fringe. While the Bee succeeded in scaring one corporate donor (note that most corporations are sissies that cave to leftist complaint drills – such as the Under Armour CEO that praised Trump and then folded like a cheap lawn chair when the organized protests came), Courage house is still running.

They appear to have turned the corner in dealing with the State of California. I believe that the California bureaucracy are decidedly anti-christian as I hear horror stories from would be adoptive and foster parents all the time where they have to hide their bibles before the State visits their house.

If you have a few dollars to spare, please donate to Courage Worldwide as they have been put through the wringer by the State of CA and the Sacramento BS in what I believe was no accident or coincidence.

World Relief, who has been nuked on this blog twice for their left-wing bias and for concealing their conflict of interest, got lit up again. Similar to the Capitol Resource Institute whose employees and public volunteers were publicly supporting and campaigning for candidates without disclosing the donations from them – World Relief Sacramento gets 75% of their funding from the Federal Government. No wonder why this alleged faith-based charity was calling on people to go crash Tom McClintock’s Townhalls!

I was told that they did not send emails encouraging protesters to show up to the other Townhall meetings the Congressman held. I can’t confirm that. What I do know is that Trump’s policy of actually enforcing immigration law is bad for their business and they did not openly disclose that they are a largely federally-funded refugee agency.

Faith Leaders for America Applauds President
Trump’s Immigration and Refugee Policies as
Consistent with Biblical Teachings

Washington, D.C.—Dozens of clerics organized by the new multi faith group Faith Leaders for America (www.FaithLeadersforAmerica.com) released today an open letter to President Donald Trump supporting his efforts to protect Americans through a prudent pause in immigration and refugee resettlement from seven problematic nations. Their letter says, in part:

“As faith leaders, we want to thank you for: following a discerning and Biblical approach to the ‘wise welcome’ of foreigners, including refugees; your commitment to border security; and your determination to end the magnet for illegal immigration represented by so-called ‘sanctuary’ cities. All of these initiatives have firm foundations in Biblical instruction.”

This open letter is being circulated for signature by other ordained clergy and spiritual leaders in response to efforts by those selectively invoking passages from the Bible in opposition to the President’s initiatives. One such misleading influence operation was led earlier this month by World Relief. Unmentioned in its open letter to the president and vice president is that organization’s blatant conflict of interest: World Relief garnered over $225 million from the federal government from 2008 to 2016 as payments for its resettlement of refugees.

In addition, several U.S. cities were subjected on Sunday to demonstrations billed as “interfaith” rallies in which non-Muslim clerics joined others in the crowd in professing that they were “Muslim too.” The rally in New York, however, featured prominently Linda Sarsour, a Sharia-supremacist who epitomizes the intolerance that alienates many people of other faiths. For example, in 2011, she used Twitter to attack former Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali and ACT for America founder Brigitte Gabriel for their opposition to suppression of freedom in the name of Islam. She declared, “I wish I could take their vaginas away—they don’t deserve to be women.”

Ordained clerics and other spiritual leaders who actually support freedom of expression, as well as freedom of religion, are encouraged to join the Faith Leaders for America’s open letter (full text, as well as those who signed, here).

Visitors to the site can also view the group’s rollout press conference at the National Press Club on January 19, 2017.

Faith Leaders for America is a dedicated group of clergy and leaders from various faith communities who share a common commitment to freedom—freedom of religion, freedom of speech and the other liberties guaranteed by our Constitution—along with a firm commitment to address the imminent threats to those freedoms.

Good for these people for calling World Relief Out. I wonder how many of the pastors that signed World Relief’s letter were told about the millions in federal funds they got to re-settle “refugees” before signing the letters?

It is clear that Donald Trump touched a third rail with the immigration policy. It is clear that the left is pulling out all the stops to fight anything that will stem the tide of illegal immigration.

That said, some so-called “Faith Leaders” are conspiring to commit felonies. Namely, harboring fugitives and assisting in a conspiracy to violate US Immigration Laws. I am not sure what translation of the Bible they are reading that justifies committing felonies.

These people are fools and when they get held accountable, they will go to prison along with the fugitives they intend to harbor.

Do not confuse yourself, this is not an act of conscience, this is an act of sedition for political gain. Comparing harboring illegal aliens to the underground railroad that fought against slavery is absurd and offensive.

  1. The Rocklin City Council did exactly what I thought they would do, appointing a democrat to the City Council. Why bother having a Republican Party when democrats get a free pass on election? Peter Hill lives on in Rocklin.
  2. The Cowardly FPPC Complaint filed against the League of Placer County Taxpayers over the hit piece done against liberal democrat Camille Maben has gone nowhere. It has been 3 months since the letter informing the league of the attempted lynching was received. I am sure the person(s) that filed this complaint are equally as apoplectic over the stellar performance of Donald Trump, but they can’t lash out with an FPPC complaint against Trump to voice their displeasure. They will have to stick to living vicariously through the paid riots (or riots/demonstrations organized by paid hacks) happening in various places in America.
  3. I have recently met with democrat Roseville Council Member Scott Alvord for Lunch. As of right now, he is on a very short list of democrats in Placer County who have qualified for the RightonDaily amnesty program. While I have disagreements with Mr. Alvord, I do support most of his agenda for Roseville and wait to see how he handles the next batch of labor negotiations, how he comports himself as a council member and what he is able to accomplish for the business community. He should do well.
  4. Apparently Rene Aggie-Lair-Uh has not had has ass beat enough. He put in an application for the vacancy created when my Mother, Linda Park, resigned from the Roseville High School Board to move to Reno, Nevada. If Aggie-Lair-Uh files for office again he will get annihilated as this blogger will make sure there are unlimited resources to take him on a guided tour of hell. Sometimes I struggle to properly express myself. I may have here, who knows? (For those of you tuning in, Rene Aguilera is a race-baiting welfare maggot who thinks anyone that does not pronounce his name right is a racist. Therefore, I sometimes spell it phonetically so you can properly pronounce complete reject in Spanish. Hopefully, my description was clear)
  5.  In the grandest of political ironies, My friend and former paying client Andrew Tagg parlayed an unsuccessful run for Roseville High School Board in to an appointment to fill the seat vacated by my own mother. Thank you to Scott Huber, Julie Hirota, Gary T. Johnson and Paige Stauss for a unanimous 4-0 vote. (Paige Stauss is also on the RightonDaily Democrat Amnesty list)
  6. I am hearing several names being promoted for Roseville City Council. Amongst them are kool-aid drinking far lefty CJ Jawahar (Sp? lest he call me a racist, too) who was a dem sacrificial lamb in partisan office elections in the past. Despite being utterly humiliated in his attempt to run for school board in 2016, the unpopular and disrespected leftist Democrat David Larson apparently has a case of Aguilera Syndrome as he is considering running for Roseville CC as well. Targets Acquired.
  7. As of right now, the only Roseville CC Candidate I am supporting is Tracy Mendonsa. There are other rumored Republican candidates. The field will materialize, soon as I am aware of a third democrat (a planning commissioner) talking about a run.
  8. Jack “Chief Ganja” Duran is on the ballot in 2018. He is a trial lawyer that sucks off of Indian tribes amongst others for a living, and while his only Native American heritage is by virtue of his Spanish-Central-American-Indian roots (more commonly referred to as Mexican or Latino), he wears a pony tail and Tribal Jewelry. Chief Ganja’s number one contribution to Placer County is trying to turn it in to a gigantic pot farm. Mr. Duran would claim to have a pro-business voting record, however if there was a third socialist on the Board of Supervisors, the Chief would be chaining himself to the gates of a nuclear power plant. His original run was financed by far-left labor unions and look to them once again should Chief Ganja draw an opponent. That said, should no one from the business community step up to run against Jack Duran, I will run against Jack Duran. I live about .2 miles from where he does. This is not an idle threat. While I may not beat Jack Duran, I will change his life forever if I file to run against him.
  9.  The age-old question arrives again, will Robert Weygandt retire. It is unclear as his Placer County Conservation Plan is not completed due to inexplicable opposition from people usually aligned with him. I am aware that one of the biggest losers in Placer County (which applies to him in several ways) Spender Short, who recently was deposed after 3 terms of fiscal irresponsibility and egomania from the Lincoln City Council, would be first in the buffet line for that seat.

Some may say it was a #YUGE victory for the little people last night.

Some may say it was a victory for the partisan Republican Electeds last night.

After an estimated $100k was spent attempting to influence the outcome of Placer GOP Party elections, the results of said elections were uncertain.

All over the North State, from Sacramento all the way up to Butte County, the Partisan Republican Electeds and Political Consultants who up until 2016 were rarely interested in Central Committees for anything other than an endorsement have been engaged in mortal combat. It appears that until Placer’s meeting that the massive expenditures had taken their toll on the little people as most all Central Committees are now controlled by Staffers, Consultants or the Families of Partisan Electeds.

When Dennis Revell (who I supported) got re-elected 21-20 last night, it had the beginnings of another good evening for the elections. But, instead, it was a disaster.

Pictured is the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information minister, who along with the cowardly, neurotic Ken Campbell made last night’s Placer GOP Organizational meeting a joy for all involved.

Speaking of Crazy, Suzanne Jones – she of the failed assembly campaign and the joint campaign with liberal DTS NIMBY-BANANA Victor Bekhet is now the First Vice Chair of the Placer GOP. Apparently, due to the failures of the GOP we need to support candidates for party office who work to unseat local Republican Electeds.

Ironically, Suzanne Jones decried the fact that there were three democrats on the Placer Board of Supervisors! She may need intensive therapy and special education in a local charter school to ascertain the facts. But, for the benefit of her and her supporters, let me list the supervisors:

District 1 – Jack “Chief Ganja” Duran, DEMOCRAT (funded by labor unions and booster of turning Placer in to a Pot Farm)

District 2 – Robert Weygant. REPUBLICAN (Pro-Choice, Pro Gay Marriage)

District 3 – Jim Holmes. DTS (Pro-Life, all over the place on other issues including pot farms)

District 4 – Kirk Uhler. REPUBLICAN (PRO-LIFE, PRO PROP 8)

District 5 – Jennifer Montgomery. DEMOCRAT (the Sierra Club loves her more than Victor Bekhet)

Hopefully, this will provide the necessary education for the Devil and Mrs. Jones.

2nd Vice Chair Mark Wright and Secretary Beth Wright are good people I have known for years.

However, the Treasurer is none other than Deborah Jackson. She was a last minute replacement for the cowardly, neurotic Ken Campbell.

Last night featured Mr. Campbell waiting until Congressman McClintock left the room to lambaste him. That’s right, your intrepid blogger gets to bask in the glory of another pyrric victory as I accurately predicted that Campbell would indeed turn on McCintock. I guess a 30 year friendship with Dennis Revell does not count in Ken Campbell’s mind, as McClintock was apparently expected to abandon Revell because that is what Campbell wanted.

All in all, last night’s meeting is a recipe for another 4 years of gridlock. There are 4 members of the executive committee who are opponents of the Consultant Oligarchy and the local partisan electeds. (Even though I hear that the electeds may not have been unanimous in all their voting)

People will get a front row seat to the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister and his brand of inclusion. They will also get another 4 years of Ken Campbell’s neurotic rants via email. But like Campbell and Hudson, most on their side have done little real work. Over a decade later, Campbell is still taking credit for other people’s actions and Hudson is still living in the past.

Thomas N Hudson is indeed as effective as any member of the Consultant Oligarchy at running a drill in a small universe. This is why they won last night.

Most on the Consultant / Elected side haven’t done much to help matters, either.

This leaves Dennis Revell who has attempted to provide a vision and leadership, to rely on a group of people who prefer to debate, email and fight wars on facebook.

As a new friend to Revell and someone who has learned who he really is as a person, I am not sure whether to laugh or cry over the results of last night.

Update – here is a nice angle, Tim Donnelly takes to Breitbart to support Peter Thiel. This would put him at odds with a lot of his core supporters. Was/Is there a nexus for Mr. Donnelly in this?

Peter Thiel would be the next Meg Whitman. A loaded, Bay Area Republican seeking the governorship of the State of CA.

GOP Consultants are salivating for a paycheck, who in their right mind wouldn’t be?

By the time Politico, the Hill or any other mainstream hard-left media outlet gets the news, it is months or years old.

When one sets up a run for statewide office there is usually a large-scale plowing operation in advance of it where potential obstacles are neutralized in advance of said run.

I have been vacillating that the activities in the North State are related to a possible LaMalfa / Nielsen / Gallagher and others office shuffle. James Gallagher’s wife is pregnant with twins due in May. These would be children 4 and 5. I believe that the notion of Gallagher wanting to go to Washington DC anytime now or in the immediate future is extremely remote.

Without getting deep in to the weeds, let’s have a look at the circumstances as I know them right now:

Large amounts of money spent to gain control of dozens, if not hundreds of delegates to the CAGOP.

Large amounts of money spent to gain control of county party central committees.

Those ousted are a collection of old-time Conservatives, Tea Partiers, State of Jefferson People and a handful of disruptors that needed to go. Again, not all those that were ousted were a bad thing.

All this said, as I looked across the paradigm, the increase of GOP Staffers and well-known and well-established GOP Consultants suddenly engaging in Local Central Committee politics exploded. My first reactions back in March of 2016 when I was seeing who was filing for County Central Committee in various areas was who, what and why?

The first thought was the Nielsen and/or LaMalfa retirement angle. While there is an increasingly slight chance of those being real, there is still a nexus for why dozens of people that are ordinarily annoyed with Central Committee Politics took a sudden interest.

A paycheck.

This leads me to Peter Thiel.

In 2010, a who’s who of GOP Consultants in California made thousands, some as much as $15,000 a month working for Meg Whitman. Peter Thiel has similar resources.

There is another complicating factor – while Peter Thiel was a a huge supporter of Donald Trump, he is gay. This is going to be an issue for about 15-20% of the voters in California.

The results of the 2016 GOP internal party elections represent the wholesale slaughter of Conservative / Tea Party Activists / State of Jefferson people. The leadership elections have seen a removal of the hardest of hardcore Trump supporters in favor of a group of establishment types many of whom were #nevertrump while others advised their candidates to stay away from Donald Trump.

Further, some Central Committees knew that loads of money would be spent in an effort to unseat them. They went to a caucus system in order to defend themselves from the large money. The by-laws of the state party were modified to strip those committees of their delegates. This was done in 2015. Did these people see a Peter Thiel coming back in 2015?

The people most likely to see Peter Thiel’s Gay-ness as a chance to gain more democrat votes are indeed those in power in most places of the State GOP. I could care less who Thiel sleeps with, but many of my friends in the establishment are obsessed with the Gay Marriage issue.

Lastly, there has been a movement to mid-term change the GOP platform to remove the support for traditional family values / marriage from the platform. The chatter about that has arisen in the last 6 months, this suggests that the Peter Thiel effort may well have had its’ genesis around July or 2016 when he spoke at the RNC Convention.

Plot all of this stuff on a straight line

By-Laws Changed to force Central Committees on to the ballot

GOP platform adopted that has less conservative language regarding Gay Rights

Consultants and Staffers file for Central Committees en masse

Millions spent on elections

Peter Theil arrives on the scene

Chatter begins about modifying GOP Platform

Post election aftermath with Staff and Consultants in open warfare with activists.

You tell me what this means?

Maybe it was not for Peter Thiel per-se, but it sure was about control and a paycheck. I am sure time will tell who, what, when, where and how much.

BTW – allow me to finish by saying, I am not opposed to Peter Thiel at this time. A lot of those Consultants and Staffers are Friends. A lot of those Activists are Friends as well. This is an attempt at a report on insider action and a search for context for it.
