Matthew Cunningham is an Idiot Part 4: Bagging on Disneyland?

Matthew Cunningham has political Tourette’s Syndrome.

When he ranked on roadside vigils that are left by latino families and created a firestorm, you’d think he’d have learned.

Matt Cunningham was forced to resign from a prestigious post on the OC Parks Commission as a result of his stupidity. However, the Anaheim Chamber decided to retain Matt Cunningham despite protests demanding his ouster.

In a recent post, Cunningham was overcome with bravado having seen me in person for the first time. He couldn’t help himself, writing the following: (Aaron) looked as though he was competing for first prize in a “Dress Like An Obnoxious Tourist” contest.

You would think a even a moron like Matthew Cunningham would understand that I was actually agreeing with him on something.

Disneyland is easily the biggest draw to Anaheim and easily would be the biggest benefactor of the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce.

Apparently – Cunningham thinks an American Flag Shirt with Mickey Mouse on it is obnoxious.

While this isn’t exactly as egregious as his offending the entire latino community in Orange County (and LA County for that matter), with his stupidity… now he is bagging on Mickey Mouse.

Maybe I should apply for a job with the Anaheim Chamber since I appear to understand how to promote Anaheim a wee bit better than Matthew Guadalupe Cunningham.

It’s amazing, really. Sometimes good things happen to good people.

Many of you that regularly read this blog remember when I was thrown off of Red County for being paid by Steve Poizner. Many of you read when months later, I found out that Meg Whitman had bought the Red County Blog 4 days before I was tossed.

People that were recruited by Team LaMalfa (Karen England et. al.) used the fact that I got tossed from Red County repeatedly to get mainly Tea Partiers that had never met me to believe I was some sort of scumbag. Welcome to Politics.

Recently – the FPPC was considering regulating paid blogging. Similar to the Dave Gilliard led media drills against the Central Committee – some of Meg Whitman’s former team ran one against me. They attempted to re-write history claiming that I never had a job offer from Whitman… in a similar manner that the Red County founders were never honest about my disclosing to them my arrangement with Poizner.

The media drill ended with my quote, “… government telling anybody to do anything, but if these idiots would start being ethical about what they’re doing there would be no reason for government to be stepping in with more regulations.”


The Orange Juice Blog broke the story about the demise of Red County. (that I called Meg County to highlight its’ purchase)

I left the following comment:

I don’t believe in Karma.

I wrote previously that I had forgiven Chip Hanlon and Matthew Cunningham years ago for being double-dealing political whores. I continue to stay involved in politics because I meet people like Allen Bartlett and others along the way that remind me there are true people out there for the cause.

Hanlon reaped a whirlwind. I sincerely hope that Mr. Hanlon finds God, or at the very least his integrity as a result of his world collapsing. Everyone is redeemable – but I have a really hard time thinking that either Hanlon or Cunningham are.

I learned a lesson – Matthew Cunningham is a step worse than Hanlon. Cunningham has deluded himself in to believing that his political prostitution is the right thing to do and that every position he takes is the right one.

In retrospect, when Hanlon got bought off by Whitman and threw me out of the blog – it was because his house of cards was collapsing and he needed some cash desperately.

Cunningham has no such defense for his behavior at all.

In the end, Matthew Cunningham got off way easier than Chip Hanlon. Hanlon will likely end up in Prison or so financially devastated that he will be on welfare.

Meanwhile, Matthew Cunningham continues to leech $200 an hour off of the first five bull—- that he opposed when it was on the ballot, and the list goes on and on and on.

I learned another lesson – simply telling a couple people when I have a conflict of interest is not enough. I told Hanlon and he misused the information – and for 2 1/2 years since, political opponents throw it in my face, occasionally, I get calls from the media about related issues.

I learned to jealously guard my integrity, because at the end of the day no one can take that away from me unless I let them…

… and this is where Karma comes in. Matthew Cunningham and Chip Hanlon attempted to destroy me and now look where they are. Both exposed, Hanlon destroyed.

… that’s sad

Will team LaMalfa / Gilliard ever set the record straight over the smears? Of course not.

Why Is Matt Cunningham’s Double-Dealing an Important Lesson?

Many of you regular readers of this blog have read me write more than a few times about my expulsion from Red County. I got expelled because I was honest about working for Steve Poizner.

Matt Cunningham is one of the partners in Red County – he is a well-connected member of the “Orange County Mafia”. The OC Mafia basically control the California GOP.

Cunningham is a reputed “conservative” activist. He was in Jon Fleischman’s wedding for example, and he has known several OC legislators since they were in College.

Somewhere, the quest for a paycheck trumped his Conservative Activist background.

The Friends for Fullerton’s Future Blog just opened up Cunningham again – finding a $30,000 contract for more Government Work. Here’s the deal – it is not wrong, just hypocritical for Cunningham to be doing this – and when you read the blog and the contract itself – you’ll see that Cunningham is sucking at the government teet for doing little or nothing.

Cunningham’s Partner – Chip Hanlon is getting sued by the FINRA and the SEC for fraud. Hanlon had also had his license to practice financial planning revoked in 2009 and a Bankruptcy around that time as well – explaining why the Red County Blog was sold to Meg Whitman.

Add to this, the previous revelations that Cunningham raked in over $200,000 from the first five commission – the Rob Reiner thing known as prop 10 – and you have a pattern of hypocricy.

You can see multiple posts about the First Five Commission all over the FFFF blog. Try Here, And Here, Again Here and some more Here.

The point? Matt Cunningham railed against Prop 10 for a long time before it passed. Chip Hanlon self-righteously bloveated against paid blogging.

Still others here locally seized on the self-righteous cannon and libel of the above two to use in their “case” against some of us locally.

So – some tried to use Fraud at the CRA convention and also used the rantings of two fruadsters from the OC to “reform” things? Epic Fail.

I gotta rub it in the face of Red County – aka. Meg County Blog, they look like a bunch of Idiots as opposed to just being simple Charlatans right now.

They sell out for cash then stab Meg in the back by supporting Nutbag for Lt. Governor over Abel Maldonado – Meg’s choice. But, at least Matt Cunningham and Chip Hanlon were compensated well for their political prostitution.

Mr. Jerbal and his friends from Orange County can post all their blogs and take all the shots at us (at the OJ) that they want, but the exposure will never end. They are frauds. Allan Bartlett found it out, just like I did – if you tell them the truth, they mess you over.

Does the above sound harsh? Meg Whitman is a Democrat – her positions on issues were quite similar to those of Jerry Brown so people voted for the real thing. Do not call yourself a Conservative leader while you hitch your wagon to that, end of story… otherwise, you’re a sellout.

Once the Primary was over – I gave tepid support to Whitman as the nominee of the GOP, but that was it. I jumped in and supported Abel Maldonado – because he won the primary fair and square only to have someone use him for a cheap fundraising stunt.

There have been a ton of recriminations over the elections results. I can tell you in the state party the immediate cosequences will be that the old leadership will be targeted at the next convention.

Guy Houston – Meg’s hand-picked puppet for Chairman is a goner… I wonder if he even answers the bell?

Jeff Flint – best known as one of the consultants that got Prop 8 passed despite the Obamunism tsunami – lit Arnold, Meg and the whole lot of them up in a post on the FlashReport. I am leaving an excerpt here:

Republicans! The Party of Lower Taxes! Not under Arnold Schwarzenegger, who raised taxes and fees by billions and sought to undermine the two-thirds vote for tax increases.

Republicans! The Party that will End Deficit Spending!  Not under Arnold Schwarzenegger, who repeatedly has papered over deficit spending in a manner that made Gray Davis’ budget shenanigans look amateur in comparison.

Republicans! The Party of Economic Growth, Jobs, and Fewer Regulations!  Not under Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose AB 32 monstrosity will confine California to lower growth and under-performing job creation for decades to come.

Am I putting too much of the blame for California’s failure to follow the rest of the nation in moving decisively to the right on Schwarzenegger?  I don’t think so.  Because there is clear evidence that it is the California Republican brand, as defined by Schwarzenegger, that suffered this past Tuesday, not conservatism.

A new website has popped up – it is called the worst campaign in history and it rips the lack of principle and the incompetence of the $170 million debacule.

The GOP got it’s ass kicked in California because of Arnold and Arnold in a skirt – Arnold was rejected, not Republicans

I have been reading the whole slew of blogs for two weeks, I’ve said little. I am trying to help Sam Aanestad get elected Lt. Governor against a fraud – Abel Maldonado.

Now – I have read about another fraud. Meg aka Red County.

1. Chip Hanlon is starting a policy to prevent Matt Cunningham from Attacking people who write here? Thanks a ton Chip. I am still getting email forwards of psychotic rants being written by the Jerbal and others… I’ll believe that deal when I see it.

2. Let me get this straight – I get tossed from Red County because I took money from people associated with Steve Poizner (who, incidentally is gaining big time on her Megness) while Meg County was bought to the tune of $65K that we know of…

The Irony? MEG WHITMAN TRIED TO HIRE ME and I refused to betray Steve Poziner. Maybe if I was a whore, I’d still be writing on Red County!?

Now, Cunningham grandstands telling people “if he (york) only disclosed what he was doing”… really? It only works one way, of course – it took the OJ blog outing the first $25K payoff from Meg Whitman for anyone to realize that while grandstanding on ethics – the real ethics were who was paying them.

3. Now, my friend and principled Libertarian Conservative Allan Bartlett gets ejected from Red County because he would not endorse hypocricy? Allan Bartlett refused to defend Matt Cunningham and his double-dealing.

People like Chip Hanlon and Matt Cunningham create DTS and Libertarians out of Republicans. People assume we are all hypocrites when our public leaders are unprincipled whores.

Now, Cunningham – who grandstanded against the Meathead initiative before it passed, runs to the front of the line with his hand out for the money after it passed. That is called double-dealing… and while legal, is immoral.

Man, do I feel violated. (just like those poor Children Cunningham outed on his blog)

Red County has become a joke – unbelievable.

P.S. Allan – welcome home. Welcome to the halls of real bloggers with ethics.
