There goes that narrative about Trump…

After the June primary the metrics show that Amador is in the same zone that Republicans experienced in 2010 and Amador’s close race against McNerney in 2014.

A telephone survey of high-propensity registered voters within the 9th Congressional District was conducted between the dates of September 10 and September 11, 2016.  The sample size of 350 yields a sampling error of less than +/- 5.5%. 

Results demonstrated a strong early position for retired U.S. Marshal Tony Amador when matched against the incumbent Jerry McNerney with a 46.3-38.2 general election split.   Interestingly, Jerry McNerney’s vital signs were mediocre with 34% favorable and 26% unfavorable.

In the presidential contest, Clinton is struggling with a 42.2 to Trump’s 39.8.  More telling is the issue drift in Trump’s direction: with Trump besting Clinton on immigration by 52.9 to Clinton’s 37.3 and on the issue of National Security Trump beats Clinton 47 to 42.

In the general election contest, the support for Amador comes from two sources.  First, he has commanding support from Republicans.   In the general election match up, Tony captures 83% vote share among Republicans; slightly more than the 81% Democrat vote share by McNerney who has a significant drop off of Latino voters.  An even more encouraging sign is that among independent voters, Amador captures 52% of the vote compared to McNerney’s 40%. 

If Amador can keep the independent differential near the points found in this poll, Amador is well positioned to make the 9th district even closer than it was in 2014.

The explanation for the above results can be attributed to the district.  Historically the voters of the 9th District self-identify as conservative by a 2:1 ratio (60% conservative and 29% liberal).  The enthusiasm factor favors Republicans by a difference of 45% to 24%, with a switch vote percentage of 14%.  Obama’s 2012 performance in the 9th CD has evaporated coupled with Hillary’s down ticket suppression of the Democrat base vote

Significantly, Jerry McNerney’s attempt to sidestep the Hillary campaign and assume that his incumbency will carry his election is a shaky assumption at best. 

In summary, the Amador campaign is trending in the desired direction.  As one of the sleeper districts in the state, CD 9 is behaving as one might reasonably expect from a central valley district. The projected turnout model based on the primary numbers have narrowed the registration gap to almost dead even

This race’s rating will shift dramatically from safe Dem to tossup as soon as a moderate effort is made to elevate the best candidate Republicans have offered in years—Tony Amador.

We always hear that CA-09 is “winnable” for a Republican. Tony Amador is a Retired US Marshall and has quite a personal story and resume. He has run before – but this year he is a Donald Trump delegate to the RNC Convention choosing to stand up to the establishment while others lost their nerve and resigned.

The incumbent is Jerry McNerney – one of the ex-military officers recruited by the dems in a drill of 2006 to try to take the veteran issue away from W Bush. McNerney won not because of his issues or ability, he won because of Jack Abramoff and smearing Richard Pombo. 

Maybe this is the year Amador Breaks through. He certainly has the fire in the belly, look at this:

STOCKTON, CA, USA, July 8, 2016 / — Today, the Former United States Marshal for the Eastern District of California, Antonio C. ‘Tony’ Amador, JD, calls for the Resignation of FBI Director James Comey.

As a person with nearly 40 years of law enforcement experience, I do not take this step lightly. I have never witnessed a more serious act of official dereliction of duty than the recent press conference held by James Comey, the Director of the FBI.

First, Comey carefully laid out the extensive legal case against then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Then, the Director acted irresponsibly by recommending against prosecuting Secretary Clinton.

Analogy: imagine a Police Chief whose investigators find gross mishandling of sensitive information that puts the public at risk, who then holds a press conference urging the District Attorney not to prosecute. Director Comey recommended the Attorney General ignore the facts of the investigation and the plain reading of the law, and not prosecute a case.

The section of US law that — by Comey’s own admission — the FBI found Hillary violated:

(f) Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

(g) If two or more persons conspire to violate any of the foregoing provisions of this section, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each of the parties to such conspiracy shall be subject to the punishment provided for the offense which is the object of such conspiracy.

The law is clear. Director Comey spent most of his press conference detailing how Secretary Clinton violated the law.

Then FBI Director Comey who is sworn to uphold the law – let down all of us:

• The FBI Director publically recommended non-prosecution of Mrs. Clinton, based on his assertion-without-proof that there was no intent on her part to commit breaches of security with classified information.

• Comey specifically stated that Clinton’s actions exhibited ‘great carelessness.’ Ordinary carelessness is ‘negligence’ under the law. ‘Great carelessness is gross negligence under the law; they are equivalent terms!

• Comey broke the standard protocol of a confidential written recommendation to the DOJ.

• The FBI Director has turned the Bureau into a ‘political’ machine serving the needs of the Washington elites.

• There should never be one set of rules for the elites and another for the rest of us.

 When an elite person excuses another elite person from the law, others feel less constrained to follow the law. #PrayforDallas

For these reasons, Director Comey is derelict in his duty to enforce the law. The FBI Director should do the honorable thing and resign immediately, so that the general public can regain faith in our criminal justice system and rule of law.

Many of us who have family and friends in Law Enforcement are shocked and saddened by the killings of heroic police officers in Dallas. Perhaps this is an example of when official lawlessness reigns, disorder follows.

Amador was a former Los Angeles Police officer, Director of the California Youth Authority, Narcotic Addict Evaluation Authority Member, Youthful Offender Parole Board member and United States Marshal for the Eastern District of California. He is a graduate of the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law and recently a member of the San Joaquin Grand Jury. Tony Amador is currently a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives, from the 9th District in California.

Lee Neves is a fixture in San Joaquin County Politics. He likes to think he is a major force in San Joaquin politics when he is hanging out at the Epic Lounge with his buddies.

Neves has a hair-trigger temper and has publicly threatened several political opponents and lists convicted felons on his list of past associates.

I got some background on Mr. Neves as a matter of course, because usually bullies have trails behind themselves. ( Thanks to a past associate who helped on the first Silva campaign with Neves and Sawyer.)

Neves has had a long career in politics – including working for the scandal-marred Steve Samuelian. (Samuelian would enjoy the Epic Lounge a lot were he in San Joaquin County)

Neves, however has a history of not paying his bills.

Neves has a $28,788 Tax Lien dated 3/16/2015. Perhaps this is why he got so freaked out over Tony Amador running? Does he need the money to pay the IRS?

Northstar Education Finance, Inc got a judgement against Neves for $6167 that does not appear to have been satisfied.

Also in 2010, Neves was liened by the IRS for $23,209.

None of the above three appear to be released or satisfied in any way.

Neves has a smaller Tax Lien of $3550 dating back to 2007 as well.

Did Katrhyn Nance know about this when she hired him(especially since Neves has taken nearly 50% in fees of what Nance has raised for her campaign)? You can make bank that the DCCC hit squad when defending McDonkey will make an issue of this!

Since Mr Neves is very concerned over the finances of his opponent’s campaigns – I decided that Mr. Neves needed to know that I am concerned that he needs to attend to his own finances as it appears he owes the taxpayers of America over $55,000. While he is at it, he should make sure he pays back the education loan he defaulted on.

Just sayin’

Lee Neves is Rico Suave. Just Ask him (to tuck in his shirt at the CRP Convention when you see him) he will tell you.

Lee Neves has had some interesting friends over the years. One such friend is one of my favorites – N Allen Sawyer who got sent to prison for being a crook. He fried along with Baxter Dunn the former Sheriff of San Joaquin County.

Baxter Dunn and N Allen Sawyer are recurring themes in San Joaquin Politics.

Currently, Neves is attempting to end the career of Elbert Holman in San Joaquin County, Mr. Holman had a few things to say about that.

Lee Neves really needs to start vetting his candidates and relationships better. After the Carlos Villapudua Disaster (who is ironically running for Stockton Mayor) Neves did end his relationship with the convicted Felon Allen Sawyer.

Neves is currently the consultant for Kathryn Nance for Congress. Mr. Neves was apparently a little more than agitated that Tony Amador  decided to run for Congress again. Neves is reputed to have flown off in to a rage, threatening to do in Jeff Acquitispace and Scott Winn.

It seems that the bevy of felons that Neves associates with have worn off on him well.

So why is a woman who has wrapped herself in her police uniform affiliated with Neves?

Given that Sheriff Steve Moore is is serious legal trouble and that another Stockton Council Candidate, Sam Fant got run up on charges related to campaign finance instead of the real issues he has…

… you start to wonder about the Stockton Police Department and why they did not nuke Fant for what he was really doing. Lee Neves is getting paid a lot of money by them to do their bidding.

Do not forget that Don Parsons is still in the mix. Parsons is working with a few candidates that include, wait for it. Carlos Villapudua. Parsons and Neves frequently collaborate on projects and unlike Neves – Parsons is still associated with the Felon Sawyer.

I do remember when I lit up some of the Parsons / Neves stable for the massive amounts of cash contributions, this was not an isolated instance of lawlessness in San Joaquin County.

Kathryn Nance appears to have a Neves noose around her neck. That is pretty damn hard to fit under her police uniform, wonder how she did it?

STOCKTON, CA, USA, May 13, 2016
/ — Stockton, California May 13, 2016


Antonio ”Tony” Amador, leading Republican candidate for California’s 9TH Congressional District today challenged “Obama’s executive order on school restroom access” as dangerous and unnecessary.

“Why hasn’t Jerry McNerney voiced his  opposition to this unconstitutional invasion of local rights,” said former US
Marshal Tony Amador.

“I believe in individual rights regardless of sexual orientation, but I draw the line when safety and privacy are involved,” said Amador.

“Bathroom confusion only allows predators an excuse to violate the privacy of our young women. Wasn’t it just last month that the Administration was telling us that women are at risk of their lives every day on every college campus from rape. And then now, they don’t see any potential danger whatsoever in allowing a man who says that he is uncomfortable using the men’s bathroom to walk in on unsuspecting young women,” says Amador.

“I know that Jerry McNerney has supported the LGBT community in the past, but I can’t understand why he would support this ludicrous executive order,” Amador said.

According to a report by the New York Times, a letter to school districts went out this Friday, signed by U.S. Justice
and Education department officials — describes what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are
discriminated against.

It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.

“This action by Obama has nothing do with civil rights, this is about the rights of everyone,” said Amador. “Grown men should NOT be allowed to use the little girls’ bathroom,” concluded Amador.
