What a waste of talent. Kiley does not need to lie or exaggerate his qualifications. He does not need to hide behind hyperbole to make his points. He does not need to avoid tough issues – yet he does all repeatedly.
You will see how the Iraqi information minister suits him to a tee.
(Remember, he’s winning)
In Lie #1 he references his former employment in Kamala Harris AG’s office and characterizes himself as a “Prosecutor of Violent Felons”. Your intrepid blogger only found one case from the 13 months he worked in that office with his name on it. It was not a violent felony. I could not prove he was employed by Mrs. Harris longer than 6 months, by the way.
He repeats Lie #2 about the DMV constituent services office, again mis-characterizing its’ purpose as some sort of secret perk. If I ever have an issue with the DMV, I guess I will have to call Jim Nielsen’s office. It does show the shallow, calculated nature of Kevin the Candidate.
He wrote a bill… omitted, it got killed. Was he grandstanding or just doing stuff to inflate a political resume?
Lie #3, the Cattle Company lie. We’ve written about his fake shell company created specifically to try and mitigate Brian Dahle’s primary occupation for his entire life. It is disconcerting that Doug Ose participated in that lie.
He references the endorsement of disturbed El Dorado County DA Vern Pierson. Pierson has a long, sordid history in El Dorado County. It would be like listing the endorsement of Ron Calderon or Roderick Wright.
I also take note that Dahle references no endorsements in his statement. Given the visceral disdain in an increasingly cynical electorate for anything representing the establishment, again, advantage Dahle. Take a good look below – these is picture you can’t fake. (Especially as kiley was embarrassingly forced to admit he does not even own a gun, let alone cattle)
Rocklin Parents? Are you ready for your children to learn more about Harvey Milk than George Washington? Are you ready for your children to learn what a bad, bad country the USA is and how we are responsible for the pain and misery that was really caused by 3rd world tyrants? The Rocklin USD is getting ready to go off the left end of a cliff.
They are alleged to have tipped off the LGBT community so they could bus in activists in order to create a false display of support for the extreme left-wing curriculum they are adopting.
Remember the Rocklin Academy and the transgender indoctrination of first graders? Remember when we all thought it would not happen? Remember when their board members made it personal instead of about the kids?
From a group of concerned parents:
Rocklin families need your help! Our school board is voting on the History Social Sciences curriculum on May 1. The meeting will be at Granite Oaks Middle School 2600 Wyckford Blvd, Rocklin, CA 95765 at 6:30 PM. The district changed the location of the meeting and leaked it out to LGBTQ activist groups and other groups who are in favor of the curriculum, before telling Rocklin families about the new location. This is extremely frustrating to know that they are working against us. We are asking for you to show up and support us if you feel so inclined and maybe spread this information to others that you know might be interested in helping us as well. If you have any Rocklin School attire please wear that!
I am including talking points from Dean Broyles, Chief Counsel and President of The National Center for Law and Policy. Please look over these and consider speaking up for the families of Rocklin! We are going to implore them to listen to the Rocklin families and not the activists wearing yellow shirts. Since they will have so many numbers from the other side we thought we would reach out and try to recruit some of our own supporters!
Please share these with any Rocklin Unified parents that you know!
Camille Maben is an extreme left wing activist and is rumored to be driving this agenda. She outwardly supported Prop 48, has been hostile to charter schools and a variety of other issues parents in Rocklin believe in.
The Placer CIR attempted to warn voters about Camille Maben in a past election, including getting retaliated with by an FPPC complaint alleged to have been filed by one of Maben’s fellow board members. (BTW, that complaint went nowhere, but the harassment cost several hours of our time responding to bureaucrats.)
It has been put to me that Rick Miller who is also a liberal democrat is in favor of the SB48 brainwashing. People tell me they think Eric Stevens and Derek Counter are alleged to be in support of this as well.
Please note, Assemblyman Kevin Kiley has been nowhere on this issue. Since SD01 is Vacant (and basically was the whole time Ted Gaines infested it), Kiley was the only higher officeholder that could have helped. He did nothing.
This radio disaster is emblematic of Kiley’s abject failure as an Assemblymember.
The first three minutes of the interview was about his meaningless resolution regarding free speech on campus.
Later in the segments, Kiley dodged a question about SOJ multiple times. The Kiley part starts at the 12 minute point.
If you listen to the cadence he is using, you can also understand the increasing disconnect. Kevin Kiley sounds like he is talking above everyone, including resorting to polysyllabic words when the interview starts to go sideways on him.
Win Carpenter and Sally Rapoza host the show. Rapoza is a leader in the SOJ movement. They also have Mark Baird (no relation to Steve Baird) on the phone for this particular episode of the show.
From about minute 24-34 Kiley filibusters and avoids the SOJ question. Starting at about 35-36 minute point the three of them unload on Kiley after he wiggles his way off of the show.
At about the 36 minute point Kiley runs away.
Similar to the Steve Frank and Travis Allen supporters that Kiley lied to by not endorsing a candidate yet handing his proxy over to Jessica Patterson’s consultants, the SOJ people that Kiley was courting just got tossed under the bus as well.
Mark Baird excoriates Kiley at about the 37:30 point. Listen to his comments carefully, he demolishes Kiley effectively repeating several of the criticisms leveled against him on this blog.
What does Kevin Kiley really believe? The lack of core principles is on display in the early part of the interview, particularly with the non specific answers to simple questions. Kiley is known for avoiding the immigration issue in public interviews, avoiding the gay rights issue and can not give a straight answer to the abortion issue when asked simply “Are you Pro-Life”?
Why is Kevin Kiley attacking all of his colleagues – including those that are supporting him? He even attacks his colleagues that did not endorse either he or Brian Dahle. I hope those that bailed out on Brian Dahle got the message clearly from this segment. Kiley thought he was playing to a hard right base on this interview, I wonder if he’d repeat the incendiary rhetoric in the Capitol. (hint: the answer is no)
Let me help young Mr. Kiley out, I support the State of Jefferson Movement. I am not sure if Mark and Sally’s approach is correct. I am not really sure how to make it (the SOJ) workable. If I was running for or in the Assembly or State Senate, I’d research the issue and get back to these guys with suggestions on how to make it workable. Now, how hard is that? You won’t even lose any donors over such a stance.
Let’s try this one – I am Pro-Life. Why? A government that does not protect innocent life won’t protect any life. This is indeed an issue of rights, for everyone. See how you just turned the issue around by taking a clear stance?
Let’s try this one – I am pro Church and pro family? Why? I believe 1st Amendment rights are fundamental to society, Churches and their followers have as much a right to their beliefs as people do to be homosexual. Too often courts and legislatures act as if the two are mutually exclusive. I believe traditional family units are foundational to society – despite recent efforts to re-define social norms, traditional marriages produce children and said children raised with two opposite sex parents tend to commit less crime, graduate at much higher rates and generally end up more productive in life.
It is the opinion of this blogger that the reason it is so difficult for Young Mr. Kiley to take clear stands on issues is two-fold, one is that he lacks an ideological core. Most of his family were democrats until 2016, his brother preaches social justice from the pulpit and was a public Obama supporter in 2012. (Recently at their church there was a black lives matter poet who gave a presentation trashing the police late last year that caused several of the security staff (off duty cops) to quit). It is hard to be a conservative when your family are to the left of you, that is not a slam on the Kileys, it is a statement of fact. They are good people, as I have met some of them. Kevin’s brother the pastor Brian, while liberal is a good dude. I still remember him ribbing me over working for Ben Carson.
Number 2, is the much more disturbing fact, there is a “Campaign Kevin” and “Assemblyman Kevin”. Having met both Kevin’s, there is a palpable difference. Campaign Kevin is the one that filibusters and tries to avoid answering questions. Campaign Kevin is the one that will give different answers to different groups. This is why he keeps getting caught. This is why the SOJ people he was courting are now withdrawing or supporting Dahle. This is why at least two county central committees that endorsed him have widespread dissent, as his game playing over the CAGOP Chairman’s race was exposed.
It is sad to see really, he is talented and has a lot to offer. But, his apparent lack of a core is overriding everything else he brings to the table. His lack of real life experience when added to the above is a killer.
And like a busted clock, even someone like Chimelewski gets it right once in a while. I have cut and pasted the post from Danny boy here for your review, because it is devastating for Sean Mill – in terms of exposing his inconsistent values, hypocrisy an the like:
When last seen, former Santa Ana Planning Commissioner Sean H. Mill resigned from his seat in July 2016 after a private investigation discovered he was no longer a resident of Santa Ana (more details on this to come).
Mill has switched his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican and is running for City Council in Riverside. But stretching the truth is something he’s applying in his campaign for voters in Riverside who don’t know him as well as we do. And he has a long track record of being less than honest.
Mill resigned from the Santa Ana Planning Commission on July 13, 2016, about a week after his wife saw a private investigator taking photos of Mill’s car outside her home in Riverside. When Mrs. Mill confronted the PI, on July 5, she told him, “My husband lives in Santa Ana.” Mill’s resignation letter reference he had moved to Riverside in “late June” making one wonder if he was hiding in his wife’s home or did she not get the new script.
It’s entirely possible Mill was residing in Riverside for months while he remained on the Planning Commission and enjoyed all the perks that came with that sans residency. Here’s the Voice of OC story on the resignation. Remarkably, Mill was appointed to the Riverside Airport commission less than a month after leaving Santa Ana, leading many of us to wonder if there’s a real shallow pool of candidates for commissions in the area there.
Take a peak at Mill’s fundraising flyer. He states he was an airport commissioner from 2015 to 2017. Now the rules for being on commissions require residency. How could Mill be on this commission in 2015 when he was a Santa Ana Planning Commissioner in 2016? That’s actually a crime — fraud I believe. But knowing Mill as we do, we’ll chock this up to an attempt by him to make voters believe he’s been a factor in Riverside longer than he has.
Here’s the minutes of the meeting where Mill was appointed commissioner:
I have to wonder if the Republicans in Riverside are aware of Sean’s “liberal” past. Here’s a blog post from 2015 after we filed an FPPC complaint against Mill for failing to adequately complete his form 700 disclosures. In particular, he was called out for homophobic comments in an LA Times letter he wrote in the late 90s. Watch him address the audience in this YouTube video.
Mill continued: “Folks that pick and choose comments — cherry picked them — taking them out of context to try and make their point failed to get the newspaper articles I’ve written in support of the LGBT community — scores of them as a matter of fact — but those never seem to make their rounds.”
Mill continued: “I own what I say. When hearing what people have to say, for every article they’ll come and show you, and ‘oh look what he said’ after they take it out of context, I can show you articles I have written with my name published in the newspaper in which I support the LGBT community. So be very careful of folks telling you things.”
Mill continued: “I usually sit here and be quiet and take it, but when I see an organized effort based on a pack of lies to come down here and attack myself and Commissioner Alderete I’m not going to remain silent.”
So where are these “scores of articles” with Mill’s byline in support of the LGBT community? If you can find one published in the newspaper, send us a scan of the print edition or a link to the website. We can’t find a single story.
Mill never says which newspaper he’s published “scores” or articles and, from his speech, we’re almost certain he doesn’t know that a “score” means 20 articles and “scores” would be 40 or 41. I challenge Mill to produce “scores” of stories…I just don’t think they exist. I’d be happy to see one or two, but “scores” of pro-LGBT articles with Mill’s byline are simply hot air.
I still can’t find a single article written by Sean H. Mill that supports the LGBTQ community published anywhere. I do have a comment where he called the former publisher of this site, Chris Prevatt, an HIV+ gay man, “you infected little shit.”
For voters in Riverside who don’t know Mill’s party-switching, political vendettas and honesty about his LGBTQ support, Santa Ana residency/Riverside residency, and his Airport Commission appointment date. Does this man have the integrity to serve you on the city council of your city?
Blogger’s Note – while Dan C is obsessed with homosexuality and left-wing purity (including supporting 4th Trimester Abortion) his points about Sean Mill’s failure to be honest, his residency, potential fraud, potty mouth, abusive behavior, playing fast and loose with the truth, pandering, party-switching and the like paint a picture that is not a good scene at all.
Now we know why Young Mr. Kiley is whining. In an email entitled Simple Addition, Kiley was covering for his humiliating failure to raise money by bemoaning the evil Realtor’s Union and the Independent Energy Producer’s Unions for supporting Brian Dahle. (In case you’re wondering – and have been for the last 3 months, there is no Realtor’s Union or Independent Energy Union, they are figments of Kiley’s Ivy-League imagination)
Young Mr. Kiley may need to hit the Ginko Biloba to jog his memory. I seem to recall not long ago when Obama Donors bundled $300K in to his campaign in 2016. I also recall when another one of them led a $200K+ independent expenditure on his behalf from the same crew. Lastly, a billionaire poured $1 Million attacking another one of Young Mr. Kiley’s opponents.
Perhaps Kiley’s cognitive dissonance is why several people that used to support him no longer do?
