The Difference Between Real Endorsements and Fraud – Jim Nielsen

There is a reason why David Stafford Reade was tossed from the CRA for 10 years and fired by Doug LaMalfa and why Mark Webmaster Spannagel was tossed for 5 years – Fraud and specifically for rigging CRA endorsements.

Now that I have seen that David Stafford Gilliard is in a reactionary mode with his campaign releases – allow me to point out one critical fact about today’s release.

Neither Colusa nor Siskiyou’s Central Committee noticed Dan Logue about a pending endorsement – this violates the CRP’s by-laws.

What’s worse – is that Colusa appears to have never held an actual meeting of their entire committee to vote in person per state CRP By-Laws on their endorsement.

This means that Team LaMalfa/Nielsen are engaged in business as usual – contrived endorsements and controlling circumstances versus the Placer GOP for example where the result was not known beforehand.

Announcing dubious Cent Com Endorsements may give proven liar David Stafford Gilliard some good copy for his mailers – but is indicative of Jim Nielsen’s failure to connect with real grassroots.

Next – I am expecting paper GOP clubs under the control of the above mentioned to start announcing their endorsements of Jim Nielsen – meanwhile the CRA, composed of 6 Real Units with jurisdiction in the district endorsed Dan Logue Unanimously.

These are desperate times for Gentleman Jim.

Jim Nielsen is beating a drum – if you hammer him for his record, you’re a liar. Click here to see our post from last year lambasting Jim Nielsen for his role in decimating the CAGOP Platform.

Unfortunately, for gentleman Jim, he has been in office too long to get away with anything. Actually, he has been on both sides of so many issues he is using that to double-speak any of his critics. Case and point – Periphrial Canal – He opposed Jerry Brown’s Canal, but supported George Deukmejian’s. He voted to put Prop 14 on the ballot, but then opposed Prop 14 once on the ballot. He called members of the legislature to go up on Prop 1A – the largest tax increase in state history, then voted against it on the floor of the Assembly.

Nielsen was also on both sides of the California Republican Party Platform debate. But, what he did as a member of the drafting committee was so egregious that he will not recover politically from the exposure.

In the drafting Committee – the minutes show that Jim Nielsen was out in front, leading the charge for the Platform for California’s Future. This platform had the pro-life, prop-8, 2nd amendment, and a whole bunch of other Republican issues stripped out of it.

It was so watered down that it even had the ethics section deleted! Click here for a full analysis between the previous CRP platform and the one that Jim Nielsen advocated for.

Click here to see the minutes from the Platform Drafting Committee MeetingNielsen was the first to speak towards its’ adoption and he made the motion to adopt said platform (Called the Platform for California’s Future). Conservative leaders Mike Spence and Craig DeLuz led the opposition.

Note as well that there were amendments proposed to bring parts of the “Pruner Platform” in to the Jim Nielsen Platform. They were all torpedoed.

The amendment to add paragraphs 3-8 of page 8 was adding Pro-Life language to the Nielsen platform. It was voted down. The amdnement to add paragraph 2 of page 5 was adding Prop-8 to the Nielsen platform. It was voted down.

I was called the day of the Drafting committee meeting by Steve Frank and I also spoke to Craig DeLuz. They both told me that Jim Nielsen was leading the debate for the watered-down platform the entire meeting. Mike Spence later confirmed the same story and he added that David Stafford Reade (who was expelled from CRA for 10 years for committing fraud) was there with Jim Nielsen.

You see, when legislative staff come forward to tell me that Jim Nielsen is making calls to try and recruit people to support the largest tax increase in state history – it gets my attention. When these same staffers tell me that Nielsen played let’s-make-a-deal on tossing three dams in Siskiyou County as part of Arnold’s water bond (which could go on the ballot at any time, still)… it gets my attention. Then when something like the Platform fight features Jim Nielsen it all makes sense.

There are times when Jim Nielsen’s own tendencies put him in a place where calling his critics liars just simply can not obfuscate the truth.

Jim Nielsen calls himself a Conservative because he is not. He attempted to destroy the CAGOP Platform – largely due to this blog criticizing him  – Jim Nielsen reversed himself and actually voted against the Platform he had moved to adopt and voted for the “Pruner Platform” in the entire Platform Committee.

Add this to the list of Jim Nielsen’s flip-flops – but this one is clearly an effort to save face after getting exposed.

P.S. – remember that $133k that Charles Munger invested in Nielsen? Charles Munger spent a reputed $250k on the effort to gut the CRP Platform. David Stafford Reade was paid to run the proxy drill in the north state for Munger. The $133k from Munger certainly looks like Jim Nielsen’s reward for services rendered. If Nielsen really supported a Conservative CAGOP Platform would Charles Munger have dropped $133k in to him?

Please note that Jim Nielsen’s scheduler had indicated that Nielsen had this on his schedule – inexplicably Jim Nielsen did not attend.

Want to know one of the reasons why David Stafford Reade, Karen England, Jim Nielsen, Dave Gilliard et. al. have persisted in their attempts to destroy me and their attempts to meet out revenge? (The current rendition is their run at the Placer GOP Cent Com)

We cleaned out all the fake CRA Units. Jim Nielsen had been endorsed by the CRA twice for his Assembly Runs. Not any more.

Jim Nielsen was held accountable for his record, as such, he did not receive a single vote from the CRA.

Dan Logue, the author of Prop 23 that would have repealed AB32 got 100% of the votes.

Four CRA Units Met – Yuba, Nevada, Butte and Placer. (Ironically, each of those GOP Cent Coms have endorsed Dan Logue as well…)

Jim Nielsen Loses Glenn GOP Endorsement

There is a by-product of the slow awakening that the North State has had to Conservative Fraud Doug LaMalfa.

Groups of people once beholden to Doug LaMalfa aren’t anymore.

LaMalfa’s attempt to anoint Jim Nielsen is the latest in a string of things Doug LaMalfa has done that have caused the dress to come off the pig (so to speak).

While the ignorant focus on LaMalfa saving the taxpayers $2million on a special election – those same people have permanent memory loss over LaMalfa’s $5million in farm welfare checks.

They also seem to ignore Jim Nielsen’s record of playing lets’ make a deal with everything important in the State.

However, the group of siccophants is shrinking. Glenn County is the heart of LaMalfa country. All the “Cow Counties” on the Northern I-5 Corridor are where LaMalfa / Nielsen are the strongest. In fact, team LaMalfa cleaned out several of those Central Committees of dissenters.

However, Doug LaMalfa’s own glass jaw seems to have cost Jim Nielsen a Cent Com endorsement he should have gotten.

When Doug LaMalfa had a confrontation with an 85-year old woman because he did not like an editorial critical of his “resignation” posted on the window of the Glenn GOP HQ, (because they rightly saw it for what it was) Doug LaMalfa set in motion a chain of events in Glenn County where the activists there started to reconsider.

There are also the issues that Jim Nielsen campaigns on one side of – yet acts on the other side of:

It is common knowledge amongst insiders in the far north state that Jim Nielsen negotiated Dam removals in to the Arnold Water Bond. (A copy of said bond language is coming soon)

Jim Nielsen did indeed support the peripheral canal – George Deukmejian’s Version – but Nielsen fought against Jerry Brown’s Version.

Nielsen’s team are quick to call anyone a liar that makes the above assertions.

There are some counties that don’t care – Shasta, which is run by a small oligarchy that has been there since the beginning of time and Tehama – where Jim Nielsen’s alleged residence is.

It should tell the reader everything they need to know – the counties with true activists that are independent minded are endorsing Dan Logue.

Glenn is coming out from under the long influence of LaMalfa – they voted 10-6 in favor of Logue… 2 votes short of the 2/3. Nielsen should have had this one in the bag and he could not even get a simple majority.

Jim Nielsen continues to run from behind.

Nevada County Endorses Dan Logue 16-2

David Stafford Gilliard and David Stafford Reade have to be feeling some acute pain right about now.

Yuba GOP – Unanimous

Butte GOP 18-2

Placer GOP 16-8

Nevada GOP 16-2

Jim Nielsen’s tepid support in Republican Grassroots is manifesting itself.

The bottom line is that Ted Gaines has been smoked out and got Smoked by the Nevada GOP.

This is a lesson to Dave Gilliard about what happens when your desire for absolute control takes you in to Central Committee Politics. Gilliard’s client (Jim Nielsen) is getting his ass kicked repeatedly and another one of Gilliard’s clients – Ted Gaines had to screw over more people before this meeting.

Only the very liberal Shasta GOP Committee endorsed Nielsen thus far.

In other news – I re-verified with my sources Jim Nielsen’s complicity in negotiating Dam Removals in Siskiyou County as part of Arnold’s Water Bond and the fact that Nielsen was calling Republican Members to see who would go up on Prop 1A. I was assailed as a liar for making both assertions – that are insisted to be true by those in the capital that told me.
