When you are out of creative ideas and your ego is personally bruised, you send emails demanding your opponent drop out of the race. When you have excellent ideas, energy and resources, you respond with stuff like this.

Travis Allen will probably be better served going back to blocking people on social media.

Worse, he may need to tell his crew that the illuminati did not make up my screenshot of being blocked. (It is going to be an entertaining 5 months for sure…)

Now back to the order of the day:

(The issue is – what happened to the money…)

Request for Autopsy Report

Office of the Political Coroner 

January 14, 2018

To whom it may concern,

On January 8, 2018, the Join Travis Allen to Repeal the Gas Tax Ballot Measure Committee passed away of lethal lack of momentum in Huntington Beach, California as noted in the obituary published two days ago.

At yesterday’s USC gubernatorial debate, Travis Allen remarkably criticized Mr. John Cox for contributing $250,000 into the real effort to repeal the gas tax, while Travis Allen only siphoned $87,188 out of donors and didn’t submit a single signature by the January 8, 2018 deadline.

The purpose of this letter is to formally request the official autopsy report. As you know, these reports are essential in the completion of a thorough and accurate cause of death investigation and confirm there was no foul play.

In comments to the The San Jose Mercury News, Travis Allen promised to give the money collected to the real campaign led by a coalition including John Cox, Carl DeMaio and several others. While the chance of that occurring may be zero, voters request to know how Travis Allen spent that money, how much is left, how many signatures were ever collected and when it will be transferred to the successful effort to repeal the gas tax.

Just nine days before Travis Allen failed to submit a single signature he sent out the following  misleading fundraising email:


Voters deserve to know the truth and donors deserve to know what Travis Allen did with their money.

Travis Allen has had a bad week. His garbage Gas Tax initiative failed to even return a single signature.

In a face-saving move, Mr. Allen has attempted to indicate that he is “Joining” the Carl DiMaio / Howard Jarvis effort to overturn the Gas Tax.

While Travis is claiming to have “Won” the USC Debate on Saturday, the truth is he was booed more frequently than a bad act at the $1.98 beauty show.

Travis Allen got owned bad and since then has been on tilt using democrat talking points to attack John Cox. Just how bad did Travis Allen get owned?

. goes after other Republican in the CA Governor race “I want to give my young and immature compatriot a little lesson here.”

Man, it sucks to be Travis Allen. Daddy took him out behind the woodshed.

Not to be outdone, the John Cox campaign has trolled the youngster (who wears Jeans and no Tie when all others are in a suit for a debate) with an epic campaign email:

Obituary
The Join Travis Allen to Repeal the Gas Tax Ballot MeasureCommittee passed away quietly in its sleep at 11:59 p.m. on January 8, 2018 after submitting zeroof the required 365,880 signatures.

Born on May 4, 2017, the “effort” was primarily used to justify Assemblyman Travis Allen’s smoke-and-mirrors campaign for Governor. It will be best remembered for deceptively collecting $87,188 from innocent, well-intended donors that just wanted a more affordable California, but Travis Allen just made it cost more of their hard-earned money.

Its passing generated the attention of news outlets throughout California.

The Sacramento Bee:Gas tax repeal appears headed for failure – but voters may get another shot
The San Jose Mercury News:Gas tax repeal sponsored by Assemblyman Travis Allen fails to qualify, but another effort could reach the ballot
The Los Angeles Times:Assemblyman Travis Allen fails to qualify initiative to repeal gas tax, will support campaign for similar measure

Travis Allen’s “effort” is survived by the Stop The Car Tax initiative, which is chaired by John Cox and supported by Carl Demaio, Howard Jarvis Taxpayers, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and most members of the California Republican Congressional Delegation. The legitimate effort chaired by John Cox has already collected over 400,000 signatures and has until May 21, 2018 to submit the minimum 585,000.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to StopTheCarTax.org if you want to contribute to a real effort to repeal California’s regressive gas and car tax.

Carl DiMaio got in to the act, excoriating the Sacramento Bee – and highlighting how Allen’s self-serving effort hurt all Californians. While Allen was siphoning off much-needed resources from the real effort to overturn the Gas Tax (and volunteers), his duplicate and competing effort was causing confusion. DiMaio did not mince words for Travis Allen either:

Aaron-

I have heard from some of our supporters that they are disturbed about a very confusing story in the Sacramento Bee today with a grossly-flawed headline “Gas Tax Repeal Initiative Fails.” THIS HEADLINE IS DEAD WRONG. The SacBee supports the gas tax hike, and we believe they ran an intentionally misleading headline to dupe voters into not returning the signatures they may still have.   

If you read the story, you realize that they are not even talking about our Gas Tax Repeal Initiative. The story is all about Travis Allen’s fake gas tax petition and how he failed to submit even a single signature for his effort. Let me be clear: Travis Allen’s failed effort has had nothing to do with our broad-based coalition.

The REAL Gas Tax Repeal Initiative has collected over 400k signatures in record time, and we are well on our way to the 584k signatures we need! We are collecting signatures at a record-breaking pace.

Please continue to do the AMAZING work you are doing to get and return signatures on this petition. Even as the article concedes, we are well on our way to winning this thing!

Help us SUCCEED with qualifying and passing the REAL Gas Tax Repeal Initiative by contributing today

But wait – there’s more! Travis Allen’s crew created a page to highlight all their trolls that had been blocked off of John Cox social media. Embedded in this post, you will see that Mr. Allen’s glass jaw got the best of him 5 months before election day and I was blocked. If Travis Allen can’t handle Aaron F Park, how can he handle governing California? Perhaps he should tell his crew that having an I’ve been blocked by page up while they are blocking people makes them look ridiculous.

It really sucks to be Travis Allen. He should call Tyler Diep and tell him he is running for re-election to AD72. Tyler Diep should tell Travis Allen to retire. Heck, I might shake young Tyler’s hand if he did that…

That’s right, it is a fraud. A dirty secret about Travis Allen’s Gas Tax initiative is that the statutory deadline to gather signatures expires on 1/8/2018.

ON 12/31 – he sent out an email asking for money. This is dishonest at best. The text of the email follows (The biggest lie is emboldened):

Dear: (sucker)

Just like you, I’m looking forward to 2018 . . . for the most part.

However, there is one thing I am dreading: the increase in vehicle registration fees that kicks in January 1 thanks to the $52 billion gas tax bill the Democrats forced on us.

Thankfully, 2018 is the year we can repeal this obscene tax, but first I need your help finishing out 2017 strong.

Before midnight on New Year’s Eve, we must raise another $10,000 to help us gather hundreds of thousands of signatures and put our repeal on the ballot next year.

In order to save yourself from incurring thousands of dollars in unnecessary taxes and fees for the next 10 years, please chip in just $25, $50, or even $100 or more to help us hit our year-end goal.

Remember, we must hit our goal before midnight New Year’s Eve, or else we could be stuck with these taxes and fees for 10 years or more!

Thank you for helping us fight back against the Democrats’ latest tax scheme!

Sincerely,
Assemblyman Travis Allen

Why is Travis Allen raising money for something that he knows is going to fail to even get on the ballot? (This reminds me of Karen England ripping off the legitimate Prop 8 Effort many years ago when the Capitol Resource Institute ran a signature initiative) He is asking for $10,000 to help get hundreds of thousands of signatures, which should have people screaming BS by itself aside from the fact that not a single signature has been gathered by Travis or his crew for his initiative… and the clock runs out on 1/8/2018, but SEND YO MONAAAAY!

Why did Travis Allen persist in pushing this initiative when there was another Gas Tax Repeal initiative in circulation? Was he trying to sabotage the effort? The Howard Jarvis Backed Initiative is rocking and rolling, gaining tens of thousands of signatures.

The truth is that all of the money that Travis Allen is raising off of this fake Gas Tax Repeal can be swept in to his governor campaign. While this is legal, it is deceptive and unethical.

Travis Allen’s keyboard commandos will try and dismiss this, similar to Mr. Allen’s Pro-Choice record, horrendous attendance record, record of questionable votes in the legislature, donations to Barbara Boxer, Jerry Brown and his tax liens. It is just fitting that a fraudulent campaign is marked by fraudulent fundraising. Travis Allen should have stayed in the Assembly.

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.
