Reality is a stubborn thing.

We’ve been pretty clear. The local media in Riverside County is abhorrent. They were 100% complicit in the corruption of Stan Sniff, and similar to the New York Times and Washington Post – both caught in multiple lies related to President Trump – the Desert Sun is on a rampage to assuage its’ endorsement of Stan Sniff.

As not seen in the local Riverside Media. A clear promise kept, CCW Backlog eliminated, process streamlined.

Neither of the major local toilet papers have bothered to cover the myriad of efficiency improvements implemented by the Sheriff. Neither covered the CCW issue, because at the end of the day most of their employees are gun-grabbing liberals anyway.

There has been no follow up on things like Kevin Duffy, Sniff Management Personnel that got away with sexual harassment (think #METOO), crimes, cover-ups, gross mismanagement and the like.

What we do get from the Desert Scum is a chicken-feed cheap shot headline.

The headline reads “DID CHAD BIANCO LIE!?“, but the article is pretty much the same pablum we’ve grown tired of since the Desert Sun failed to properly cover the Stan-Sniff deputy cheating scandal cover-up.

You have to read down 7(!) Paragraphs (note the similar pattern in the New York Times or the Washington Post) – to get to the meat of the story. The first seven paragraphs were replete with implications of secrecy and lies lies lies by the Sheriff.

Although the proposed rate isn’t what Bianco promised, this year’s 2.19% rate increase and next year’s projected 5% increase are not as dramatic as rate increases in the years before he took office.

Imagine that. But, Bianco is a liar because the rates did not go down. It is similar to media attacking President Trump’s Tax Reform that dropped taxes for 85% of Americans

Then after all the cheap shots to lead the article – there is this:

Even though many said they were hopeful Bianco could lower the rate in the weeks leading up to the meeting, officials from Temecula, Menifee, Moreno Valley and La Quinta commended Bianco for reining in the rate at which the contract cost is increasing.

Now why did you call Chad Bianco a liar, Desert Sun? I think you owe him an apology, front page above the fold.

And Bianco thinks his 5% estimate for next year’s rate increase was on the high side.

“With what we are doing, I can’t imagine it going anywhere but down,” he said in an email to The Desert Sun.

Very interesting that an article headlined “Broken Promises” has these sorts of quotes in it. This is what Media outlets do when they feel forced to have to cover positive news about electeds they don’t like. (Especially a Conservative Republican like Chad Bianco)

La Quinta City Manager Frank Spevacek said Tuesday’s meeting was a refreshing change from prior contract partner meetings but he was taking a wait-and-see approach to determine if the new sheriff’s administration could rein in costs.

Note – no mention that the prior contract partner meetings were with Desert Sun endorsed Stan Sniff. Imagine that.

“Proof of their commitment to this new way will be determined by the going forward actions the sheriff implements,” he said.

I can hardly wait to serve the Desert Sun some more crow when the reforms bear more fruit

A couple of side items. Stan Sniff’s cronies that used to control CCW Classes and ranges now have competition. One of the many reforms brought in by Chad Bianco are new ranges and new vendors authorized for the CCW Program. H Paul Payne, a man I believe to be invertebrate slime, who inexplicably is in a position of authority in gun rights groups has been silent while Bianco does in 4 months what his boy Sniff did the exact opposite of in 11 years.

Omitted from the Desert Sun Story – conveniently so by the way – is the hiring binge going on by the Sheriff’s Department. Inside sources tell me that the fiscal mismanagement under Stan Sniff was so pervasive that just simple changes to methods of doing business are allowing the department to make their money stretch further. It is unclear to this blogger if the extent of the mismanagement, what I believe to be felony embezzlement, misappropriation, commingling and accounting fraud that was the rule under sniff will ever be fully known or revealed. This was also omitted from the Desert Sun Story.

We had written previously that one of our favorite punching bags, Jason “Deuce” Horton was being hired as the Chief of Police for Yakima, WA. Well, Horton quit his job in Code Enforcement and was already packing his bags. The City Council missed the memo and hired someone else. DOH! I guess that means Horton can glare at me at the next CAGOP Convention in Indian Wells in September.

I am waiting to hear about several individual cases of employees who were screwed over by the Sniff regime. People like Tammy Smoak, Gabe Dennington and Lance Colmer come to mind. I am also very curious to see what is coming next related to the massive cover-up of one of the worst serial child molesters in American History (if everything alleged is true) Kevin Duffy. I am sure the Desert Sun will have nothing to say, or they will try to blame Chad Bianco for it.

If the Desert Sun is following the typical leftist media pattern – they are going to set a narrative that Bianco is a liar, tries to hide stuff (which they did in this cheap shot article) and is in over his head trying to run the department. Watch for it, I’ve seen it for years from media outlets, especially those butt-hurt when their endorsee loses an election.

Ouch. This is one group that was regarded as being in the bag. Roseville is the largest city in AD-06 and directs a lot of policy in South Placer. While Roseville is not in SD-01, it’s decisions have tremendous sway as Roseville has nearly 40% of the population of Placer County.

This is known as a bad beat when you lose something this significant in your own backyard. Perhaps the Roseville Chamber of Commerce understands Kevin Kiley’s Cattle Company is a fraud engineered for a ballot title or background embellishment. Being an Ivy League Lawyer with more years in school than in the workforce is a tough product to sell.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Roseville Area Business PAC Endorses Brian Dahle for State Senate

ROSEVILLE – The Roseville Area Business Political Action Committee has unanimously endorsed Assemblyman Brian Dahle for California State Senate in the June special election to fill a vacancy created by former Sen. Ted Gaines’s election to the State Board of Equalization.

Assemblyman Dahle currently represents Assembly District 1, which extends from eastern Placer County to the Oregon border, including nine counties.

“Brian Dahle brings extensive knowledge and experience in business and government to represent Senate District 1 in Sacramento,” said Jeff Ronten, Chairman of the Roseville Business PAC. “Working along with our current Assemblyman Kevin Kiley, we believe these two leaders together bring excellent skills to best represent our members and our area.”

‘The PAC is an independent but affiliated entity of the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce. Senate District 1 includes 11 counties from El Dorado County to the Oregon border, including most of Placer County.

Nothing to see here move along now…

A third-generation farmer operating his own small business, Assemblyman Dahle has served in the Assembly for more than six years and previously served 16 years as a County Supervisor. He served from 2017 to 2018 as the Assembly Republican Leader and is a past chairman of the Rural County Representatives of California. Brian and his wife, Megan, live in the rural community of Bieber and have three children – Chase, Reagan, and Roslyn.

Kevin is not having a good time these days.

Over the years, I have done a ton of research on Rodney Stanhope. He is one of the biggest disasters in politics I have ever seen. He seemed to be able to reinvent himself to hitch on with various campaigns. It seemed to stop after the 2014 election when he worked for the last-place finisher in AD73.

Stanhope really came on to my radar screen in 2006 during the Bill Jones for Senate Campaign and his erratic pattern, that I’d later recognize as drug addiction was in full effect.

Yup. A felony warrant for domestic violence and skipping out on his court date. What a coward.

In 2015 – Stanhope was arrested for Felony Domestic Violence and a Judge actually granted a restraining order. Several women had tried previously and none succeeded until 2015. The 2015 Felony case went nowhere. Then in 12/9/2018, Rodney got caught beating up another woman.

Rodney Stanhope also did work for Beth Gaines. He seemed to fit right in with Sssssteve Davey who was fired for some graphic and grotesque behavior towards female staff. Stanhope appears to prefer to just beat them up rather than Davey whose filthy mouth was the issue.

INEXPLICABLY, Stanhope got 227 votes for Vice Chair of the CAGOP in 2013. I know more than one person who got attacked for not supporting this “True Conservative” by some of the fringe elements within the CAGOP (aka Tea Party). Part of my disdain for the Tea Party is their affinity for frauds like Rodney Stanhope, Tim Donnelly, Chuck DeVore and others. It was never ideological.

According to my research, Stanhope has had well over 20 addresses in the last 20 years. It appears he could have as many as 9 children by 8 Women. I know 100% of 7 by 6 different women and have stories about others – including Rodney posting on Facebook about his 14 year old daughter at the time that he’d never met.

He has had several delinquencies of Child Support, most would be claimants have just given up. He had a misdemeanor assault conviction that preceded his felony arrests.

Stanhope stuck to cash jobs for years in order to avoid wage garnishments and tax liens. In fact, he had as many as 6 tax liens at the time he ran for CAGOP Vice Chair (and got 227 votes). He also had a judgement against him for writing bad checks to a contractor.

He was known to drink heavily and use Methamphetamine. The stories about his substance abuse are legion. You can see time and again, court documents referring to it.

The moral to the Rodney Stanhope story, beyond the political stupidity of people hiring this guy or voting for this guy is clear. He is the face of Drug and Alcohol addiction mixed in with having no conscience or shame. (Aka a Sociopath)

Stanhope is 51, and has left a trail of destruction in his life. People in CAGOP Politics have enabled this guy because they lacked the discernment or they willfully chose to ignore his behavior. In 22 years in CAGOP politics I have seen this behavior repeat.

It is my opinion that Stanhope is a hopeless alcoholic-addict. Unless Rodney admits he has a problem, no one can do a thing. Incarceration is the appropriate end for him as he will continue his trail of destruction if he remains a free man.

The people that voted for this guy for CAGOP Chairman or who hired this guy repeatedly in campaigns really need to learn something from their part in the whole saga of more and more conmen will ply their trade within our ranks.

Information continues to pour in from the North State, with very little from the south.

First off IF YOU WERE LEFT OFF THE PLATFORM COMMITTEE BALLOT LIST IN YOUR ASSEMBLY DISTRICT – Call the CAGOP or EMAIL THEM. They are contacting people one at a time. There was some sort of epic fail with their database. I spoke to someone in the CAGOP’s office, they are well aware there are several errors. Call and get your situation fixed. There is no nefarious agenda here, just a screw up.

Second, your ballot MUST BE RETURNED IN THE US MAIL. Otherwise, it will not be counted.

Third – see below.

Vote for your person by X’ing the box.

Then, Sign the Ballot.
Put a real stamp on the envelope after you’ve put your ballot in the envelope. In my case, I need to finish putting my return address. But ALSO SIGN THE ENVELOPE.

I am putting my ballot in the mail for Ken Campbell in AD06 Today. You can even follow up with the CAGOP to confirm they got your ballot if you like.

Now – Update on the machinations:

Luis Buhler, Sue Caro and others are calling through the bay area. There are several areas where their person is going to make it uncontested. Unlike AD06 where I live that has 40 delegates, most Bay Area Assembly Seats have 4-6. Some have as few as 2. Remember, Sue Caro was a loud opponent of Calling on Chad Mayes to resign over Cap and Trade.

I now have confirmation that in San Joaquin and Stanislaus, there is a recruiting effort underway. I received an email from an AD12 Candidate that had exactly nothing about where she stands on any issues. (This is a major red flag) While the candidate is a known Christian Conservative, it is alarming that her introduction email said nothing of substance about the platform itself. It also followed the template of Luis Buhler candidates in the Bay Area.

In the North State, the calls that are being made by the establishment are under the guise of not changing the platform. Given that in past years, proxies have been twisted under false pretenses for the purpose of gutting the platform, there is a natural skepticism about motives.

As of Today, according to several sources (adding an Assemblyman to the list) there is no organized drill in the South of California related to the Platform Committee. It appears that most just want this thing to go away with a minimum of drama. It is the opinion of this blogger that Jessica Patterson could put her foot down and tell Luis Buhler and others to stop what they are doing and make it clear the platform is to not be messed with.

This would be consistent with what she said during her Chair Campaign – that she supports the existing platform with no changes.

The reticence I have is that the players making phone calls in the North and the Central Valley were a part of the 2011 Platform destruction derby. If they truly are trying to avoid a disaster in the Platform Process in 2019, they should state as such publicly and call on people like Luis Buhler and Sue Caro to stand down and stop sewing division. Their recruits for Platform Committee should state clearly their conservative values and their desire to see them continue in the CAGOP Platform. None have done so. (another red flag)

I expected Luis Buhler to ignore calls for unity as he has a lifelong history of disdain for Conservatives and a life goal of yanking the pro-life and pro-family language out of the CAGOP platform. It is what it is.

I have a personal opinion about what is happening that I will refrain from putting in writing. That said, I am not optimistic about this process at all given what I know internally and what I know about the players involved.

To be continued.

Kevin Kiley is sweating. A fake Cattle Company, running as a deputy attorney general then getting hammered for working for Kamala Harris, having less work history than years in college… take your pick. He is not doing so hot.

Below is the text of an email he sent:

I am winning!

Following our weak second place finish in the March 26 primary, the Kiley for Senate campaign announced a series of new endorsements from elected officials and Republican leaders:

  • Congressman John Doolittle (ret.)
  • Senator Tim Leslie (ret.)
  • Assemblyman Roger Niello (ret.)
  • Folsom Mayor Kerri Howell 
  • Folsom Vice Mayor Sarah Aquino
  • Sacramento County Supervisor Sandy Smoley (ret.)
  • Sacramento County Supervisor Roberta MacGlashan (ret.)
  • Placer County Auditor-Controller Andrew Sisk
  • Placer County Supervisor Jim Williams (ret.)
  • El Dorado County Supervisor John Knight (ret.)
  • Lincoln Councilmember Alyssa Silhi
  • Loomis Mayor Pro Tempore Jan Clark-Crets
  • Rocklin Mayor Scott Yuill (ret.)
  • Auburn Councilmember Bridget Powers
  • Auburn Mayor Mike Holmes (ret.)
  • El Dorado Irrigation District Director Pat Dwyer
  • El Dorado Irrigation District Director George Osborne
  • Rocklin Unified School District Trustee Wendy Lang (ret.)
  • Eureka Union School District Trustee Renee Nash
  • El Dorado County Board of Education Trustee Georgianne Knight

Half the people on the list are former electeds. Oh and “Republican” Folsom Mayor Kerri Howell? I think the American River Democrats missed the memo. I don’t think current supervisor Sue Frost is going to be too thrilled to see one of her former opponents featured as a Republican.

Similar to claiming victory before the final count (and with 27% of the vote no less), the second Epic Fail since Primary Election Night. Looks like we have a trend.

P.S. Special Bonus – the RainbowPAC endorsement of Howell is linked here
