Reality is a stubborn thing.

I have gotten quite an education on Jessica Patterson since her rigged election to CAGOP Chair. (remember 44% of her support was via proxy) She is obsessed with identity politics, she is ruthless and vindictive. When I did opposition research on Patterson I heard tons of stories about her conduct in campaign offices and her reputation as the “Little General”. Recently, #CA10 GOP Nominee Ted Howze came under fire from Politico by virtue of opposition research sent to them by a Tom Steyer staffer from San Francisco. Jessica Patterson responded the way all squishes respond at the first sign of trouble – surrender and collaborate with the liberal media in hopes they won’t hurt you.

We are constantly reminded that Jessica Patterson is the first female chair of the CAGOP and that she is a latina. Anyone that has to run with labels and advertise them is over-compensating for something. Secondly, Patterson has made it clear most White Males are not welcome in her world. (Just Ask Lloyd White who was on the receiving end of $1Million of the scant resources the CAGOP could bring to bear in SD23)

About A week before Jessica Patterson engineered a withdrawal of the CAGOP endorsement of Ted Howze, an email went out on the CAGOP email system. (Note: I have been scrubbed from the list and do not receive any of them. Please forward any you get to [email protected] and you can remain anonymous) Stephen Frank wrote about the email on 5-20-2020 on his blog:

The Big Story

This came in the email from the California Republican Party: “We have some great candidates on the General Election ballot that reflect the strength and diversity of our state.  These candidates include Michelle Park Steel (CA 48), Young Kim (CA 39), Suzette Valladares (AD 38) and Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh (SD 23), among others. And of course, we need to get Congressman Mike Garcia re-elected to the 25th District.“

What about Greg Raths where the GOP got 49% of the primary vote against radical AOC type Regressive Katie Porter?  Or David Valadao, who is LEADING in the polls against the openly corrupt and investigated T.J. Cox?  Or Ted Howze in the 10th CD, the old Jeff Denham seat, who raised more than one million dollars and is running an aggressive campaign???

Why are Raths, Valadao and Howze ignored?  Plus in the 38th Assembly District there are TWO GOP-ER’S in the race! One is a Hispanic and the other is a LEGAL immigrant—why isn’t she mentioned as well?  What is the commonality that causes the California Republican Party to promote one set of candidates that can win over another set of candidates that can win?

You will note the sexism in her choice of candidates to highlight. Not even David Valadao, a former Congressman made the cut for being highlighted. Mike Garcia got an afterthought mention. Greg Raths (CA45) and Ted Howze (CA10) were both shunned. Now we know why Howze was shunned, and I’d imagine that Jessica Patterson and her friends are lining up Greg Raths for a similar fate. Valadao is Portuguese so he does not check a box either and failed the vetting for Jessica Patterson’s racial pandering.

Note the labels, labels, labels.

Why was Jessica Patterson so quick to slit Ted Howze throat? Also note that Ted Howze was not given a chance to defend himself to the CAGOP board. While I have no evidence to prove this, I believe that the NRCC did not give Howze a chance either before they turned their back on him. With Republicans like these who needs the Mueller investigation?

  1. Ted Howze voted for Travis Allen for CAGOP Chairman. 
  2. Scott Winn and Jeff Acquitaspace ran the campaign of Marla Livengood who was humiliated in the CA10 primary. They are close to Patterson and crew having done paid work for the CAGOP establishment for years.

Winn could get vindication with a take-down of Howze and Jessica Patterson could seek revenge on another Travis Allen suppoter – similar to the Trump delegation being thin on Travis/Steve Frank People and next to none of them being on anything CAGOP.

Patterson’s crew have threatened people for talking to your intrepid blogger. This is why you can email me at [email protected] and remain anonymous if you have information you think needs to be brought in to the light.

The offending social media posts? Criticizing Islam for violence and pedophilia. Talking about black fatherlessness and crime. Apparently Patterson is cool with Marie Waldron talking about letting felons out of jail but Howze’ social media accounts discussing the CAUSE of said crime is bad. Nothing Howze is alleged to have posted is any different than President Trump’s words.

But then, Jessica Patterson, Scott Winn and most others in the sphere of CAGOP leadership are never-trumpers.

Patterson did not stop at just ramrodding a withdrawal of the CAGOP endorsement for Ted Howze. Your intrepid blogger received a scarlet letter twice. This is a letter that is reputed to have been written by Jessica Patterson (see below) and sent to the County Chairman of Stanislaus and San Joaquin County for them to sign and return AFTER the CAGOP yanked their endorsement. Jessica Patterson was trying to enlist the local GOP Chairs in giving her vendetta political cover.

The letter was emailed to the county chairs by Jessica Patterson, However, If you pull the metadata off of the letter, none other than Scott Winn created it. Checkmate – this is the CAGOP of 2020. There is your connection, a jilted consultant who was humiliated in the primary working with the CAGOP Chairman to get revenge on a candidate they both have reasons to hate.

When these people preach unity in public, you know they are lying through their teeth. They don’t want unity, they want control – including helping Josh Harder beat Ted Howze in 2020 so they can run someone like Kristen Olsen in 2022 for #CA10.

Everything Jessica Patterson and her crew are doing is to position their candidates for office in future elections. The rest of us be dammed.

Yes sir. The same people that shredded #CA10 Republican Nominee Ted Howze (more on that soon, by the way) at the first sign of trouble are out ahead of the 2022 Governor’s race. A Fundraising solicitation was sent to your intrepid blogger. Note – I am still not receiving any CAGOP Communications at all. Further note, I’ve had two more confirmations that Jessica Patterson, Jeff Randle and others are maintaining a blacklist of undesirables.

If you want to send me tips and information but fear retaliation by Jessica or anyone in her crew – email me at [email protected] YOU CAN AND WILL REMAIN ANONYMOUS.

It is clear that the favoritism and blacklisting applies globally. In a future post, we are going to lay out some details about the inconsistent decisions and favoritism by the current regime in charge of the molten ashes of the CAGOP. Take a look at this email:

165 Days Until the November Election

Can you believe Gavin Newsom and the Sacramento Democrats? After years of touting a surplus in the state’s budget, Newsom is now asking President Trump to bail out California. 

This comes just weeks after Newsom issued stimulus payments to illegal immigrants, and he’s threatening that first responders will be the first to be laid off. From the boondoggle High Speed Rail Project to millions for enforcement of the job-killing bill aimed at flexible workers, Democrats have proven they can’t be trusted with the state budget. The out of control and irresponsible spending by the California Democrats must be stopped.   

Municipalities with Republican leadership, like San Diego, take fiscal responsibility seriously and work hard to balance their budgets. We need to stop the Democrat supermajority in Sacramento and bring in new, responsible leadership.

Kevin Faulconer was appointed state finance chair despite the presence of Doug Ose and John Cox in the 2022 governor’s race. Faulconer has been a long time client of some within the Oligarchy of Controlled Failure. Was the appointment of Faulconer a deliberate action to avail him of what’s left of the CAGOP’s resources at the expense of John Cox and Doug Ose?

In less than 2 weeks your intrepid blogger has been given firsthand knowledge that Politico is attempting to perform the work of DCCC opposition research in targeted congressional races. 1. Politico attempted to spin the loss of Christy Smith to Mike Garcia in #CA25 5 days before it happened – suggesting that the reporter was tipped off as there was no public polling available. 2. Politico wrote a cheap shot hit piece article against Ted Howze in #CA10.

It appears that the Democrats are using Russian fake twitter-bot farms. Just today, I checked Ted Howze’ twitter feed and an account with 0 followers quoted DCCC pablum and had 9 tweet likes from accounts with 10 or less followers.

One of the goals of the democrats and their partners in the media and twitter is to try and play Republicans off against each other. This includes Mentioning President Trump repeatedly in order to try and get skittish consultants (or party chairman) to acknowledge they are trying to avoid President Trump.

Another tactic is using fake twitter accounts – which Politico cited in their first hit-piece against Ted Howze. The “Reporter” Ally Sputnik-Mutnick penned both pieces referenced previously. Another Politico reporter Carla Marinucci is on a CNN-Level rampage jihad against President Trump and CONGRESSMAN Mike Garcia.

This behavior is not unique. For example, Josh Richman parlayed slipshod reporting in to a Press Secretary gig with Eric Swalwell.

Yet another tactic is re-airing decades old un-vetted smears, which they appear to be doing in #CA45 against Greg Raths. (Hey NRCC, I thought #CA45 was not on the target list?)

In the case of #CA10 it has been made clear to me that Politico and other media outlets are vetting more social media smears against Ted Howze. Politico already admitted they got the poorly vetted Twitter smears from a democratic operative.

This does seem to be having an effect on Republican operatives that are continually looking over their shoulder. You’d think that after 4+ years of a psychotic media rampage against President Trump that these political insiders would be prepared for the media to expand their creative reporting to Congressional Candidates.

Still others, it appears resent the presence of President Trump in the first place and use poorly vetted smears as confirmation bias of the wrong-headed opinions they still hold.

Whatever the cause, Republican political insiders need to grow a spine and/or finally accept that the President is indeed Donald Trump and the future of the GOP in 2020 is indeed in his hands. Fighting against it or deliberately falling victim to the same un-vetted political attacks against the President will have disastrous consequences.

The media knows that establishment are weak at the knees which is why they continue to run cheap shot articles in hopes they will break through and have the desired effect – in this case trying to separate Ted Howze from institutional support as they know Josh Harder is vulnerable.

P.S. – here is a facebook post that is unlikely to be covered by the DCCC Hacks at Politico:

May 202020

Victory has 1,000 fathers.

The primary criticism is that the CAGOP, Kevin McCarthy and others stymied a party endorsement of Mike Garcia Pre-Primary. The LAGOP and the Ventura GOP both endorsed Mike Garcia. The CAGOP, clearly at the behest of Kevin McCarthy ignored the local parties and did not consider an endorsement. The board tabled the idea. (With Shannon Grove – an acolyte of McCarthy – leading the charge) While the By-Laws of the CAGOP state that the party does not have to endorse – the refusal to do so is a slap in the face of the local GOP activists and a nod towards the Oligarchy of Controlled Failure. In the case of Garcia, he had 100% of the local county parties supporting him.

The irritation I have with Jessica Patterson taking credit for the victory post May election is partly rooted in this fact and…

… the $500K or so that came through the CAGOP to send some 30 pieces of mail in to #CA25. Why am I irritated by this? It’s great that it came. It’s great that Tom Ross’ Cal Plan was the conduit. It is 100% legal for the NRCC and RNC to pour money in to the CAGOP in unlimited amounts because the CAGOP gets an insanely cheap rate for mail.

What is not cool is when people are taking credit for other people’s efforts. (which included going on National Media)

What is also not cool is the continued hostility amongst insiders for all things Trump. Mike Garcia bear-hugged the President and it aided GOP turnout immensely.

Insiders tell me that the money spent on Garcia’s behalf that was run through the CAGOP via the Cal Plan came from back east and not the efforts of Jessica Patterson or others in California (beyond Mr. Ross playing a role in directing it). We’ll know soon enough the truth as the financial reports will be available shortly.

The sources of money are a key point to remember as the media is trying to rattle the National Republicans by taking cheap shots at candidates. Without a solid local base of money and support to keep the skittish national people on the reservation, money like the $500K that Cal Plan facilitated coming from back east could disappear quickly if left-wing rags are successful in spooking the institutional people. Mike Garcia raised a ton of money in his own right and will need to continue to rely upon that as the NRCC appears to be afraid of its’ own shadow.

More on this concept to follow.

Remember when I posted that Marie Waldron has surrendered and entered collaborate mode with the democrats?

Marie Waldron wrote a piece in the local patch, apparently at the same time as I was roasting her for her love of get out of jail free cards for felons.

Governor Newsom recently created the California Task Force on Business and Jobs Recovery to get the economy growing again as quickly and safely as possible. As Assembly Minority Leader and a small business owner, I was honored to be selected as a member of this critical team.

In between her tweets about “Criminal Justice Reform” – Ms. Waldron tweeted about how honored she was to be a part of Gavin Newsom’s wreck the economy the rest of the way team. It features Tom Steyer as the chairman – which is like asking Jack the Ripper to babysit.

Yup – she was talking about how excited she was to be on some committee presiding over the economic destruction on California.

Van Jones ladies and gentlemen and his get out of jail free cards for felons program.

Apparently, not only is Marie Waldron “Honored” to be a part of Governor Newsom’s task force, she appears to agree with springing felons from prison too.

Stories have come in from all over America about prisoners re-offending post Covid-19 release. Studies have shown that “criminal justice reform” has not slowed recidivism and in California 3500 felons have been released with bail reform allowing one man to steal three cars in the same day getting arrested three times and not held in jail.

So, given that Marie Waldron supports get out of jail free cards, and is a willing enabler of Gavin Newsom’s terrible leadership during COVID as honest citizens are being arrested... (I guess the empty jail space was reserved for business owners)

…Waldron must also support filling skate parks with sand, stupid fences on beaches and a variety of other idiocy perpetrated by the Newsom administration because all I see from her is “Bi-Partisanship” and support.

I was first alerted to Marie Waldron’s latest sell-out to Gavin Newsom courtesy of Doug Ose. Ose is alleged to be looking at a Guv run along with John Cox and the Waldron / CAGOP / Establishment choice Kevin Faulconer.

When you add in that she ran interference for the sexual harasser / campaign finance felony William “Bill” Brough and defied local GOP leadership again defending the feckless corrupt Tyler Diep – you have the full breadth of a disaster. (And two GOP members defected on her watch Mayes and Maienschein with at least 2 more rumored to be looking at it)

Did Frank Bigelow, Heath Flora, Jay Obernolte, James Gallagher, Vincent Fong, Stephen Choi, Randy Voepel and others know Marie Waldron was going to sign on to this?

Is supporting a federal bailout of deficit spending and out of control fraud, waste and welfare part of “Reframing the Message”?

All this and the leadership of the California GOP are preparing to take credit for the actions of real conservatives in the November elections, have completed a purge of the staff and are preparing to set up shop for only approved candidates of the regime.

The California Republican Party is indeed dead. Our leaders have made a conscious decision to abandon any pretense of Republican principle in search of a fleeting victory their moral/ideological failure will prevent.

Meantime – Waldron is promoting candidates for the November Election in hopes it may work out better than it did for Bill Brough and Tyler Diep. Stay Tuned…
