I’ve been told by anonymous sources that Harvey Englander has made a ton of money from the City of San Clemente. It does not show up as a line item in the budget – so if true, it means that Englander has been getting paid by one of the city’s other contractors. This may be the attorney they are using to constantly sue the TCA? (Speaking of audits, it might be a good idea to rip open the books of San Clemente)

Speaking of a taxpayer funded agitation campaign: (From the local paper that is in the bag for Bill Brough)

The city of San Clemente is again asking local residents to submit letters to state lawmakers, expressing support for legislation that would strip the authority of the Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA).

The measure, Assembly Bill 1273, which Assemblymember Bill Brough introduced last spring, proposes to restrict the joint powers authority from creating new toll roads while requiring the agencies to pay down the debt incurred from building its roads.

OF course William “Bill” Brough in his drunken stupor thinks this Bill is the cause of his demise. (Ignore the dozen or so women and the hundreds of campaign finance violations) It must be nice as a city to empty the treasury to engage in public policy…

The TCA has strongly opposed the legislation, calling it “an assault on local control.” In a letter Michael Kraman, the TCA’s chief executive, wrote to the chair of the Assembly committee, Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, he stated that the bill would be a job killer, circumvents the California Environmental Quality Act process and “will lead to dirtier air in Orange County,” among other things.

“This bill was introduced as part of broader tactics by the City of San Clemente to discredit the TCA and disrupt the environmental review process for the South County Traffic Relief Effort,” Kraman wrote.

The TCA is currently working with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) on the Relief Effort—the series of proposed routes meant to “improve north-south mobility in South Orange County and accommodate regional travel demand.”

The issue is that Bill Brough lied to a bunch of people about this, not even telling his own staff he was going to run this bill. But, of course Brough lied to me when I asked him via staff in 2018 about his sexual misconduct and weather or not he have been investigated for it.

Speaking of lies – the City of San Clemente and Harvey Englander are now 0-4 on audits. Unfortunately for them, Jeff Corless and Venture Strategic did their job correctly.

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) released the results of an external audit of their communications and outreach contract with Venture Strategic, Inc. (VSI). Flatly contradicting false statements made by politically motivated actors and reported in certain news articles, the audit found no malfeasance, a 99.88% billing accuracy rate, a net underbilling to the TCA of $5,761, and a satisfactory review of assigned task orders and corresponding deliverables and work product.

The audit was conducted by Crowe LLP, which, in the course of the audit, reviewed VSI’s compliance with the contract, billing records and invoices, and work product in comparison to required deliverables.

The audit noted that the complex billing process required under the TCA contract, which involved 12,000 individual lines of billing entries over a four-year period, was susceptible to clerical and input errors.  Nonetheless, VSI’s transparent and accountable internal procedures resulted in only a 0.12% error rate and a net underbilling of $5,761, which cut in the favor of TCA.  These results were consistent with the findings of two previous TCA internal audits and an additional external audit.

TCA awarded VSI the contract in October 2015 following a competitive procurement process, that was open, transparent, vetted by multiple committees, and unanimously approved by the F/ETCA Board of Directors in public.  All tasks, billing rates, and billing procedures were stipulated by, and received regular oversight from, TCA management and board members. It has been reported that the false accusations contained in the above-referenced news articles were precipitated by a VSI competitor who had unsuccessfully bid on the contract.

Contrary to those false claims, and due to VSI’s outstanding work, the TCA Board of Directors voluntarily extended the contract on three separate occasions over the course of a nearly four-year period.  Near the conclusion of the contract on April 4th, 2019, the TCA sent a letter to VSI that stated the following:

“We appreciate your service to the Agencies over the last few years, working with us to implement a robust and innovative communications, media and outreach effort; this effort has made it possible to engage many members of the public in Orange County, especially Southern Orange County, to be involved in the effort to explore traffic congestion relief solutions.”

Venture Strategic spokesperson Tim Lineberger commented: “We are extremely proud of our entire team’s work on the TCA project and are pleased that the internal and external audits completely vindicate us from the baseless political attacks and wrongful insinuations made by self-interested actors throughout the past year. We will consider any further statements that intentionally or recklessly run counter to the facts reported in these audits as defamatory.”

Tim Lineberger 714.676.4317

But hey, San Clemente has Gene James on their City Council now. The drama is far from over. The spiritual basis (not distilled spirits) of AB1273 was the alleged debt and corruption of the TCA. The Venture Strategic Contract was gaslighted as one of the top issues. Bill Brough’s bill was lied about and born from a lie, seems consistent with his background, his character and his life. To be continued…

San Clemente is an insane asylum. The Voice of OC detailed how communist insurgent Jackson Hinkle is under investigation from the OCDA for abusing the Firefighter Endorsement.

Remember, Hinkle has a long history of extreme left win activism despite only being 20. I am not sure the OC Firefighters thought their endorsement through.

Your intrepid blogger is in receipt of documents from several other cities with their invites from the OC Firefighters and a cease and desist letter the OCFA was forced to send Jackson Hinkle after he broke the law:

Subsequently, the OC Sheriff’s dropped $10,000 in to Gene James. It appears that the Sheriff’s Deputies are equally as disturbed by Jackson Hinkle’s anti-cop rants and the abuse of goodwill.

We’ve hammered the OCGOP for their endorsement of the deeply flawed Gene James. Then, the OCGOP outdid themselves:

Note the medal they tout as part of Gene James’ military service. They had to know that Jackson Hinkle has top democrat operatives helping his campaign. Within a day of this independent expenditure dropping, Jackson Hinkle’s campaign had a copy of Gene James’ DD214 which was missing a reference to the claimed award. (The Legion of Merit)

The only conclusion I can draw is that the OCGOP and their vendor did not do due diligence on their mailer. There has to be some sort of record or website somewhere showing Gene James falsely claiming to have won that award, or that Gene James told people he did. Note – the mailer was not done by the Gene James campaign, so the near hysterical claims of Jackson Hinkle are less provable than Hinkle’s violation of the law with regard to the fire uniform.

It is also ironic that the cop-hating Jackson Hinkle suddenly becomes pro-military.

Gene James’ campaign response to the stolen valor issue was terrible, giving more credence to the fact that he may well have been the source of the erroneous information. The OCGOP failed a basic test of doing political communication… when extolling the virtues of a candidate you’d better have proof and be able to defend anything specific. The media and the left have a pattern of saddling up on one issue in order to invalidate everything in campaign communication. This happens while the media covers up multiple lies by the candidates of the left – or in the case of Katie Hill, attacks the people whose accurate reporting brought her down. This is the double-standard set up by a media and educational establishment that would make Josef Stalin proud.

Fred Whitaker and the OCGOP stepped on a rake yet again. Between their terrible and weak handling of the Bill Brough issue and now this stolen valor mailer – the leadership of the OCGOP should be purged and replaced.

Assemblyman William “Bill” Brough – embroiled in two scandals. #1 an active FPPC investigation in to misappropriation of campaign funds and 4 documented female victims of his out of control behavior.

Jackson Hinkle – extreme left wing protester. Got arrested in Washington DC. He Boycotted the 4th of July (or celebrated if you use his words) doing an #OCCUPYICE protest. He has espoused free needles, legalizing prostitution and Heroin. He has railed on the police as agents of oppression. He is the most viable challenger to Gene James in San Clemente. A 20 year old communist. The Republican Alternative to this leftist wackjob? The Bully Gene James. I am wondering if I am just having a nightmare and someday I will wake up and San Clemente will be a normal town again.

Leftist Dark Money Groups are Pouring Money in to Hinkle

Take a look at the photo. It is a big parking lot, with lots of room. Gene James’ Silver Truck is Backed in along with the Tan Truck of another person (who is not a candidate so I will not mention them by name). They could have parked anywhere. Look at the position of the tarps. Why would the trucks back in? Why are the trucks idling – sometimes for 15 minutes? The Grey truck is Gene James’ truck. I’ve been told by eyewitnesses about a raft of issues… (I spoke with the person that took this picture of Gene James and another man blowing exhaust in to the shelters of the homeless that used to be at North Beach in San Clemente)

So there was a homeless camp with a reputed brothel tent and people dealing drugs on the sidewalk. The frustrated residents of San Clemente took the law in to their own hands and started harassing the homeless – throwing rocks, firecrackers and of course this truck exhaust incident. I have spoken at length with people that minister to the homeless and they have had multiple issues with citizens harassing the homeless. There is ample proof in photos and videos too.

Leave it to a citizen who left a comment:

Why would he need to back into a stall to make a point.  Wouldn’t it make sense to just pull in?  And the brown Tundra who accompanied Gene James, was he making a point as well?  The SC Homeless bashers talked and joked about blowing exhaust into the tents on FB.  Gene also knew that the occupant of that tent was a disabled homeless vet and Mr James must know what carbon monoxide does to a person.  A crime indeed and horrifying that anyone would consider doing something that low.

Jackson Hinkle’s solution: Trash the police whose patrols have helped reduce crime and suggest free needles and legalizing crime. This is the polar opposite extreme to the abusive Gene James and would have far greater societal impact than Gene James assaulting homeless people. Congratulations San Clemente.

Where are the leaders of the Orange County Republican Party? The only response I have seen from Fred Whitaker and most others on the Orange County Republican Executive Committee was to forward the information I had sent them to Gene James and his campaign. They never followed up and basically gave Gene James a pass. The best they could muster was a weak resolution calling on Bill Brough to retire despite the very public evidence of corruption and sexual misconduct.

San Clemente? They are willfully blind to Gene James, Jackson Hinkle and Bill Brough because the only thing that matters is the damn toll road. I don’t care about the toll road. I care about what happens to Orange County and the kind of people running it. This is why I have railed on the feckless leadership of the OCGOP. This is also why I am sounding the alarm about Jackson Hinkle – he literally is the Manchurian (Communist) candidate!

I don’t discriminate by party. Jackson Hinkle scares me because his documented behavior tells me he hates people like be because of my faith and conservative values, and the alternative are the feckless nincompoops that are running the OCGOP in to the ground.

Check out the recently filed lawsuit against the City of San Clemente. (Read it here)

Got all that? Throwing Firecrackers at defenseless people, Throwing Rocks at defenseless people, showing up at the crack of dawn yelling at people, pumping truck exhaust in to shelters… and people on the ground indicate that they had to deal with Gene James doing the abusing frequently. In the words of one who works with the homeless on a daily basis, “Until his campaign for City Council, Gene James was down there at least once a week or more. I’ve dealt with him many times.” You can’t lend the good name of the GOP to a vigilante.

This photo is provided for proof that Gene James’ truck is in the above photo.

It looks like the OC GOP has forfeited any moral high ground as they can neither claim to be social conservatives (they don’t stand up for crime victims) and can not claim to be fiscal conservatives (they refuse to deal with campaign corruption by Bill Brough, tax liens, civil judgments and the like). The OCGOP should have sat out this race if they did not want to endorse one of the other Republicans.

The OC Firefighters have given themselves two black eyes by endorsing this wackjob Jackson Hinkle. Trying to solve societal problems with a little kid that hates authority is like injecting a cancer patient with poison. How do the OC Firefighters look at the OC Sheriff’s anymore after this decision.

I’ve talked to a few ex-Republicans and to a person, they all talk about the good ol boys club and the moral bankruptcy of the local GOP. Look at them: Gene James, Bill Brough, Pat Bates.

Meantime, San Clemente is an insane asylum.

The OCGOP – Can’t bring themselves to send Kelly Ernby Packing, full of #NEVERTRUMPERS making moral judgments (except when it comes to Gene James) and of course could not bring itself to tell Bill Brough to resign preferring instead to make a weak-kneed resolution that the maniac has ignored.

Dems outnumber Republicans in Orange County by 10,000 due in no small part to leadership like this.

Now we have one abuser enabling another abuser. Bill Brough sent $500 of his dwindling campaign cash to Gene James. Nice to see abusive scum helping each other gain power in order to abuse more people I suppose.

The loser Bryan Maryott of CA-49 Fame sent Gene James $500 (Maryott is a garden variety loser, not an abusive loser, lest people with short attention spans think I am implying otherwise)

The Orange County Lincoln Club sent Gene James $500 WHAT!? They sent the check on 10-17-2019 AFTER most of the allegations of abuse were known and well after the 11 Tax liens and 4 Civil Judgements were known. Who authorized the check!?

Bill Brough’s former Chief of Staff and alleged drinking buddy (the same dude he is alleged to have shared the rager pad with in Sac) Jeff Montejano gave Gene James $250.

Why am I not surprised at the insider game? Mr. Montejano is a Grand Poobah in the local Building Industry Association Pac. The BIA is a sought after donor for anyone that is not a communist (literally Jackson Hinkle is a communist). I guess your intrepid blogger won’t be getting any love from the BIA anytime soon.

Jackson Hinkle? When he is not at #OCCUPYICE protests, the who’s-who of the far left are propping him up. The Democrat Women sent a mailer for him. He even got $164 from a medium. Perhaps he should have asked for clairvoyance as he is trying to back away from his extreme leftist record.

I have mixed feelings about the $10,000 that Gene James got from the Police Union. Jackson Hinkle in his own words hates the police.

I’ve helped cops in the past – like the beleaguered Riverside Sheriff’s Deputies that relied on Right on Daily to level the playing field against the corrupt former Sheriff of Riverside County. I’d take money from the Police Union… but…

… The problem for Gene James is that he lied to the OCGOP to get their endorsement. Gene James signed a pledge stating he was not taking union campaign cash. He just did. He took $10,000 from the Orange County Sheriff’s Union.

Gene James also said on Camera he would not take Union Money. WHOOPS. Please note that the link is to a youtube page that is supporting the extreme left-wing Jackson Hinkle as it attacks Jim Bieber as well.

Will the OCGOP finally rescind their endorsement of Gene James?

Allow your intrepid blogger to suggest a vote for Christina Setler. Thank you.

Blogger’s Note: Some of the people angry over what Gene James and Others did have filed a lawsuit against the City of San Clemente – citing the absurd decision by the Obama Judge that basically tied one hand behind the backs of municipalities in dealing with homelessness. (The “Judge” ruled that arresting homeless people when there was not adequate shelter space in the municipality was cruel and unusual punishment – thus giving Homeless people the “Right” to camp on or inhabit sidewalks and other public places)

Gene and one of his buddies backed in blowing exhaust in to homeless people’s shelters

I am not going to debate the merits of their case. Rather, I direct your attention to pages 33 and 34 of the lawsuit: (Bold for emphasis as Gene James is identified as one of the people that has engaged in these actions, (and looks to be proven as such by the videos I have in my possession) and said actions are in legal documents filed in a lawsuit under penalty of perjury)

Over several months, the CITY OF SAN CLEMENTE, through its employees and agents, fostered a climate of fear directed at people experiencing homelessness in the city. Homeless individuals were barred from locations where they previously stayed, largely out of sight. They were told by the OCSD, the contract LEO for San Clemente, that they could not be at the train station except limited purposes, could not stay at the beach or a public grassy area where they had stayed, and other similar relocations every time they moved. They were forced into more public spaces where they became the target of residents virulently opposed to the presence of homeless individuals. For example, as part of a concerted campaign to force homeless individuals out of public view and out of the city, several individuals parked their trucks in such a manner as to have the fumes from the exhaust blow in the direction of homeless individuals on public sidewalks, where they have a right to be under Martin v. City of Boise in a municipality that lacks any shelter beds, and where they have a right to be at any time like any other member of the public. These individuals left their trucks running to maximize the toxic impact of the engine exhaustOthers made it a point to transit the sidewalk with wheelchairs, challenging ADA compliance.  Some, if not most or all of the individuals are able-bodied as evinced by the fact that these individuals are observed rotating who is being pushed and who is sitting in the wheelchair. Still others scream at the homeless individuals in public spaces while law enforcement does nothing. Since unsheltered persons were forced to move to the camp on Avenida Pico, the community harassment has continued with housed residents throwing firecrackers into the camp, standing outside the fence and shouting at people and similar harassment.

Based on my research – which includes public records, interviewing people that have interacted with Gene James, I am of the opinion that Gene James is a “Malignant Narcissist” (google the description) and may even be a Sociopath. Since I am not a trained Psychologist, I have to rely on my experience in dealing with Alcoholics and Drug Addicts in recovery groups. What I see is that Gene James saw an opportunity to get to the “Cool Kids” table and thus made abusing and harassing the homeless his ticket to getting more narcissistic supply out of people in San Clemente. Narcissists take other people’s issues, make them their own and mimic behavior in order to crash boundaries and serve themselves. It is my opinion that Gene James is doing exactly this.

Once again, as a sober alcoholic, I 100% get that many homeless people are homeless because feeding their addiction is all they care about doing. I also 100% get that many homeless people game the system and abuse the court decision to further their lifestyle. That said, these are still people and deserve better than being abused and assaulted. It is the abuse and the assaults that are the point of my issues against Gene James. Not only is Gene James unrepentant about the assaults – he is celebrating them on his campaign facebook pages.

Click here for court documents, dates and case numbers detailing Gene James 11 Liens, 4 Judgements, Wage Garnishment and a Foreclosure. <<< and the OCGOP endorsed this guy!

Click here to view a video of two homeless victims of Gene James and others blowing exhaust in to their shelter. They clearly describe the pattern of abuse and harassment by Gene James.

Click here to see Gene James in the middle of a celebration where residents of San Clemente are flipping off, waiving goodbye and otherwise mocking the homeless people that were being moved.

Click here to see yet another video of Gene James harassing homeless people, this is six minutes long and is undeniable.

If you visit the Right on Daily facebook page – there are several videos featuring Gene James. What a terrible look for the OCGOP. The abusive behavior alone would be a black eye, but the lifetime pattern of judgments and liens is even worse. See even more in an expose from one of Gene’s Exes that is backed up with proof and evidence.

He was extremely racist and bigoted; spewing insults at different ethnic groups consistently, regardless of present company. At a backyard BBQ with a group of Little League players and parents, he made a very derogatory comment about Mexicans.  John M. took offense, stating his wife was Mexican and worked at Ralph’s. There was another insult by Gene and an exchange from John.  Gene instantly lunged at John, pushed him back in the chair, put his hands around his neck and started to choke him out.  It took 3 men to get Gene off John as he was starting to lose consciousness. John didn’t have Gene arrested at the time, fearing that it would make matters worse for Diane.

It is sad that the #1 option is a 20 year old #ANTIFA #OCCUPYICE #TAKEAKNEE Jackson Hinkle. Please vote for Christina Setler as neither Gene James nor the extreme left-wing Jackson Hinkle are the answer (Hinkle in his own words is anti-cop, and supports legalizing prostitution and heroin)

(Please see below for another photo of Gene James’ truck. Note the personalized license plates, and the license plate frame. Image folks, Image.) Note the position of the truck relative to the tarp, suggesting that he was caught in the act of propelling exhaust in to the homeless people’s shelter.
