One of the old adages amongst the 1990’s era-consultants in crisis management was to dig in and feed critics static to outlast them. Fortunately, your intrepid blogger has really good hands and the ability to type fast. The CAGOP Leadership have been rightly getting criticized for doubling-down on failure, like the Corrupt Tyler Diep in AD72.

It looks like they have another dumpster fire in CA-43. Joe Collins:

The California GOP Endorsed a Man who said his bodily fluids were worth $15 Million. Maybe the “Leadership” will finally meet and undo a couple of endorsements.

Now – in defense of the CAGOP leadership, the other candidate Omar Navarro is equally as insane.

Omar has been in jail in San Francisco County since December. It takes a lot of skill to be incarcerated in San Francisco that long as they love letting scum out of jail quickly. The Omar Navarro, Deanna Lorraine story is one for the ages. (refer to all of my posts about Deanna in CA-12 for an expose’ on what a disaster she is)

Joe Collins was the other guy in CA-43. Apparently, he knew just enough of the right BS to say to the LAGOP that was looking for anyone with a pulse to take on Omar.

In AD-72 Diep was the default because he is the incumbent. They did not do their homework to understand Tyler has major issues beyond his support of some horrific legislation. Instead, they have ignored the boots on the ground. And, now their indifference to doing research has manifest itself once again in CA-43.

It is likely that Omar will still beat Joe Collins in the CA-43 Primary while sitting in a jail cell.

  • The California GOP endorsed former Green Party presidential candidate Joe Collins in his bid to unseat Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters.
  • Collins claimed his bodily fluids were worth $15 million in a lawsuit he filed against San Diego in 2017.
  • Collins has switched political parties four times since entering the arena in late 2016, Federal Election Commission records show.
  • Collins had $22 in his checking account in April 2018, court documents show. Now he’s running a congressional campaign that has raised $761,000.

Steve Frank and your intrepid blogger tried to warn you and now the Daily Caller has gotten ahold of this guy.

The California Republican Party endorsed a former Green Party presidential candidate who once claimed that his bodily fluids were worth $15 million in a lawsuit that, according to a lawyer, appears to have evoked the fringe legal theories of the sovereign citizen movement.

Navy veteran Joe Collins has also raised nearly $761,000 for his longshot bid to unseat 15-term Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters, campaign records show. He first entered the political arena as an anti-Trump presidential candidate in November 2016 and has since switched political parties four times, most recently to a pro-Trump Republican.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we may have seen Joe Collins leapfrog Sean Feucht and Deanna Lorraine for Grifter of the Year.

Collins told the DCNF that his extensive campaign-funded travel is justified because the district he’s seeking to represent “doesn’t have the funds to donate to take on the most hated and corrupt female politician in the country. Therefore, I need to get financial support all over the country.”

And Collins reported to the FEC in a July 2019 campaign filing that the consulting firm, Pure Strategy Solutions, shared the same address as his campaign. In subsequent filings, the consulting firm was listed as having an address in Beverly Hills, and starting in October campaign filings show the firm having an address in Delaware.

There are no records in California’s business registry of Pure Strategy Solutions, and the firm’s apparent website merely says “coming soon” and offers no information about what they do.

Collins told the DCNF that it was “definitely an error” that he listed Pure Strategy Solutions as having the same address of his campaign in his July 2019 filing. But Collins did not address any follow-up questions about his relationship to the firm.

Instead, he sent the DCNF a cease and desist notice he authored with no apparent legal representation, saying the DNCF does not “have the right nor my permission to question me.”

Collins wrote in the notice that the DCNF’s questions involving his “closed Presidential Campaign, court proceedings and questions regarding the personal finances and dealings of Joe Collins’s private life” were “defamatory.”

Attempts to reach Pure Strategy Solutions were unsuccessful.

Good Lord. Dear CAGOP Leadership – pull your heads out, get on the phone and pull the endorsements of Tyler Diep and Joe Collins.

I am not sure why the Leadership in the CAGOP care so much about trying to save this guy. This has to be another one of those “We can’t let “Them” take out one of our members things.

I got something emailed to me after I started blasting Tyler Diep. I knew Diep was a disaster, but have a look at this:


AB 277 McCarty

Early felony release from parole

AYE    Assm Public Safety             3/12/2019


AB 964 Medina

Mandates in-person visitation rights for county inmates, without regard to facility design, space, staff, or cost to construct.

AYE    Assm Public Safety             4/2/2019


AB 1215 Ting

Ban on facial recognition used with body camera recordings

AYE    Assm Public Safety             4/23/2019

AYE    Assm Floor                            5/9/2019

AYE    Assm Concurrence              9/12/2019


SB 136 Wiener

Eliminates one-year sentence enhancement for repeat, violent felons.  This will now apply to about 10,000 habitual, violent inmates. Another early release bill.

AYE    Assm Approps                      8/302019

AYE    Assm Floor                            9/12/2019


SB 42 Skinner

Requires the sheriff to allow the person to stay in jail or offer a safe place to stay if the inmate declines release during evening and early morning hours.  Such a mandate creates space and cost challenges that would likely need to avoid keeping this population away from persons not free to leave. SB 42 requires the sheriff to provide free transportation to a location of the person’s choosing within the county or within a 100-mile radius, whichever is further.  For geographically large counties, small or rural counties with staffing limitations, and counties that release a significant number of inmates on a daily basis, this unfunded mandate will cripple the provision of other services and turn peace officers and sheriffs’ staff into drivers who will spend their days traversing the county at the whim of recently released inmates. This bill was so onerous that even Gov. Newsom found it objectionable and he vetoed the bill.

AYE    Assm Approps                      8/30/2019

AYE    Assm Floor                            9/12/2019


There is a reason why I believe that Tyler Diep bolts the GOP – he is rightly being held accountable for these and other horrendous decisions. His campaign account is full of extreme left wing donations and the Nurses Union (as far left as the SEIU) are pouring money in an attempt to save him.

Anyone that cares about public safety and the ability of cops to do their job should reject Tyler Diep post-haste.

AD-72: Very simple metric. Tyler Diep was set up to run for AD-72 by former Assemblyman Travis Allen. Diep promptly repaid Travis Allen by taking $3800 from California Trailblazers and endorsing the now former executive director of California Trailblazers over Travis Allen for CAGOP Chair in 2019. In addition, Tyler has as liberal of a voting record as several democrats – including voting Yes on the disaster known as AB5 which has wrecked the careers of tens of thousands. Diep has gotten his 30 pieces of silver as his campaign account is flush with Labor Union money and PAC donations.

It is the opinion of this blogger that Diep will bolt the GOP as soon as it suits him as Diep seems to have a life pattern of using and discarding relationships.

Janet Nguyen is meaner than a junkyard dog and this is precisely what the GOP needs as people like Diep, Chad Mayes and their friends in the swamp are hunting Republicans in to extinction.

Frank Ury has been seen in public several times with Ed Sachs. Has Ury been coordinating his attacks on Laurie Davies with Sachs?

One of the most consistent complaints, beyond Ed Sachs filing and diluting the Republican vote in AD-73 has been Sachs consistent focus on attacking Laurie Davies and not William “Bill” Brough.

I’ve been deliberately staying out of picking a candidate against William “Bill” Brough because my focus has been on eliminating that monster from the political gene pool. The issue is that monsters are usually enabled both willingly and actively by codependent enablers.

In the case of Frank Ury and Ed Sachs, I think there is a healthy level of “Campaign Envy” and a healthy level of them wondering how Laurie Davies got out of her kitchen to run for office. Sachs and crew derisively refer to Mr. and Mrs. Davies’ occupations – yet say nothing about William “Bill” Brough’s phantom and failed businesses.

Sachs should be talking about the female victims of Bill Brough and Brough’s fiscal malfeasance, I’ve yet to get a report back from anyone that he has.

It is because of Ed Sachs’ behavior and Frank Ury’s stunt that I have decided to plant my flag and endorse Laurie Davies for AD-73. I have lost any confidence that Ed Sachs will do the right thing as he appears to be overcome with jealousy and is literally assisting Bill Brough to the expense of us all.

I also have information that I am attempting to verify that one other prominent local elected in non partisan office may well be on a similar angry ego trip. Once I have been able to verify with evidence I will be writing about that character as well.

The GOP deserves better than ego-fueled rampages. With our numbers shrinking, we need leadership now more than ever and it seems that the exact opposite is happening.

These are Frank Ury’s known donors.

The last laugh of course will be Tyler Diep when he bolts the GOP.

Look at the Nurses Union Pouring Money in to Tyler Diep!

Look at Tyler Diep’s Campaign. Click here to see the labor unions and bay area liberals donating to him. Iron Workers, Carpenters, IBEW, SEIU and others are clearly delineated. You see Govern California Courage Committee – this is a consortium of Bay Area tech liberals like David Crane, Arthur Rock and others that hunt conservatives down in Primaries.

Have a look at the notice from the CAGOP about Tomorrow’s Board Meeting:

Delegate Notice: Monday, February 10, 2020  
In accordance with our bylaws, the California Republican Party Board of Directors will meet to consider endorsements in the following districts on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at 6:30PM.  
Tamika Hamilton – CD 3 
John Dennis – CD 12 
Alison Hayden – CD 15
Ritesh Tandon – CD 17 
Mike Garcia – CD 25 
Bridget Mahoney – AD 22
This email serves as notice to the delegates at least 72 hours in advance of the Board’s pending action on these endorsements.
Delegates wishing to participate in this discussion should do one of two things:
1. Submit comments in writing to [email protected] with the subject line “[district name] Endorsement Comment” prior to the Board meeting.  Comments received by 9AM on Wednesday, February 12 will be provided to the Board of Directors prior to the meeting.
2. Call into the BOD meeting on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at 6:30PM. Email Danielle Cullum at [email protected] for details on call-in information. 
Where is AD-72? It is known by this blogger that Orange County (100% of AD-72) Requested that the CAGOP revoke the endorsement of Tyler Diep. The by-laws of the CAGOP state clearly that a candidate must have the endorsements of the local parties consisting of at least 80% of the Republican Population for the candidate to be eligible for a state party endorsement. It looks like Jessica Patterson – and more importantly Jeff Randle the consultant and real power behind the curtain are thumbing their noses at the OCGOP. Diep is no longer eligible for a Party Endorsement, it should be revoked.
The CAGOP appears to have ignored the local party – and as I have been writing AD-72 is not the only place where Party Leaders are actively participating in the Murder of the CAGOP.
To be continued…
Tyler Diep.

This is what I like to see. GOP Groups taking out the trash.

Let’s start with Tyler Diep – who in the opinion of this blogger will Bolt the GOP after the March Primary. Note – Prop 14 does NOT require the top two candidates to runoff with the party preference they took in the primary. The individual is the nominee, and has nothing to do with the political parties. To think, every time a resolution to oppose Prop 14 has been brought up, the party apparatus has killed it. Tyler Diep will join the Chad Mayes Party in March, perhaps he waits until November if he survives both halves of the election. (But my money is on March for him to Diep in to the ranks of NPP)

Similar to how the Orange County Realtors continue to support William “Bill” Brough in defiance of the facts – they are also pouring money in to the corrupt Tyler Diep because they believe it will buy influence with him. (That is the only conclusion I can draw for why a local group would continue investing in such people of low character)

Of note – Matt Fleming who is a paid consultant of the CAGOP wrote an op ed defending Tyler Diep a day before former OCGOP Chair Scott Baugh tore him apart.

Secondly, the CAGOP’s BY-Laws indicate that for a candidate to have a CAGOP endorsement, they must have at least 80% of the underlying counties. Tyler Diep now has 0% of the underlying counties. Will the CAGOP follow its’ own by-laws and yank the endorsement? (If Matt Fleming has anything to say, nothing will happen)

Live action shot of Bill Brough on the 241 Freeway

ORANGE COUNTY, CA – Hon. Fred M. Whitaker, Chairman of the Republican Party of Orange County, released the following statement regarding the endorsement of Assemblyman Tyler Diep:

Yesterday evening Republican Party of Orange County Central Committee met in Executive Session to discuss the Petition of Assemblyman Matthew Harper to rescind the endorsement of Assemblyman Tyler Diep.

The petition was based on a series of votes incongruent with the Republican platform. After a comprehensive discussion and debate, the endorsement of Assemblyman Diep was rescinded by a majority vote, as required by our bylaws.

Chairman Whitaker stated – “This is a sad day when an incumbent Republican member of the legislature loses the local party endorsement, but the party felt there had to be accountability for voting patterns. There are two Republicans running in the primary for the 72nd Assembly District, and the voters can decide which one best represents their district without a recommendation from the local party.”

Assemblyman Diep is still endorsed by the California Republican Party.

And, then there is the curious case of the raging alcoholic Bill Brough. The booze must have been talking in his last email:

Brough has built a vast organization for his March 3 re-election. The resources allow Brough to get his message out and counter the negative, dishonest attacks by his opponents. Comparing fundraising numbers, electoral and a proven conservative record, it is clear that Brough is in the best position to win in March.

Everyone whines about attacks being dishonest which is why your intrepid blogger cites sources, uses photos and provides links to articles and documents. I’d encourage Brough to put the bottle of Popov down and have a look at the dozens of media articles and thousands of pages of public records related to him. Perhaps this is the vast organization he was referring to?

Two other “Vast Organizations” lit him up good: (But in Brough’s mind intoxication it is all about his sudden opposition to the 241 Toll Road expansion…)


Two Orange County Republican leaders today demanded the immediate resignation of Assemblyman Bill Brough from office (R – Assembly District 73).

At least four women have publicly accused Brough of unwanted sexual advances and inappropriate touching. Brough is currently under investigation by the California Assembly for some of the accusations.

“It’s time for Bill Brough to step aside, resign, and open the door for a candidate who can represent South County without degrading the name of the Republican Party,” said John Warner, President of The Lincoln Club of Orange County.

Steve Craig, Chairman of The New Majority joined in the demand. The Lincoln Club of Orange County is the oldest conservative donor group in California. The New Majority is a powerful right-leaning political action organization.

“The allegations against Mr. Brough are serious, and we take them seriously. Every one of Mr. Brough’s constituents should too,” said Craig. “South County deserves a representative who isn’t dogged by allegations of the worst kind of behavior toward women.”

The Republican Party of Orange County in September called on Brough to not seek reelection and to retire at the end of his current term.

Several accusers have made their stories public through press reports: One said that, after almost two years of sexual comments and advances, Brough pressed himself against her at a Sacramento hotel in 2015 and propositioned her for sex. In 2011, according to another accuser, Brough grabbed her by the shoulders from behind, propositioned her, and refused to let her go. A third said that in 2018 Brough put his hand on a wall behind her, blocked her from moving, and began touching her face and neck. She says he told her, “We should get out of here… You look like the kind of girl who would like to have fun.”

“Accusations about Brough’s conduct have been made by women who knew Mr. Brough and worked with or around him, including an elected Orange County Supervisor,” said Mr. Craig. “Several of them told friends shortly after Mr. Brough approached them and have filed formal complaints against him. They’ve taken risks by coming forward.”

Brough is the County’s only incumbent elected official who hasn’t been endorsed by the Orange County Republican Party or the California Republican Party. Because of the accusations, The Lincoln Club of Orange County and The New Majority rescinded their endorsements of Brough in September.

Brough was also warned by the California Fair Political Practices Commission about the misuse of campaign funds for a week-long trip to Paris in July of 2016. That commission is also said to be investigating a complaint alleging that Brough spent roughly $200,000 in campaign funds on personal expenses over four years including meals, cigars, a custom liquor cabinet, cell phone bills, and family vacations.

Brough is the Assemblyman for California’s 73rd Assembly District, which includes Mission Viejo, Laguna Niguel, Dana Point, San Clemente and other South Orange County cities and county areas.

Good for these groups.
