Thomas N Hudson sent out an email a few weeks ago referring to Courage Worldwide as a “Bogus Charity”. He lied. Don’t hold your breath waiting for a retraction to be issued to the estimated 1000 people he BCC’ed on the email he sent.

In his zeal to “Be Right” he sent out an email celebrating a hit piece written by an overzealous clearly anti-Christian reporter at the Sacramento Bee.

Once the absurdities of the “Issues” brought by idiot bureaucrats (did I mention that Thomas N Hudson is a $166,000 a year employee of the State of CA?) were day-lighted, guess what happened?

Read for yourself:


ROCKLIN – Courage Worldwide said today that after the appeal process and a positive programming conference with state officials, the organization is in good standing with state regulators and plans to rehire and train new staff to reopen Courage House immediately.

The state has dismissed three program citations and the organization has appealed the remaining ones, noting the state’s prior approval of all Courage House programs and policies.

The organization is pleased to announce they will resume accepting girls after staff is rehired and trained, since state officials agreed cell phones can be dangerous to the residents and staff at Courage House. Courage House policies can now deny the use of cell phones and other equipment dangerous to the girls and/or their recovery on a case-by-case basis.

The Courage Worldwide Board of Directors said:

“The population we serve is extremely unique and often existing state regulations regarding the care of minor children do not take into consideration their complex trauma and past association with criminals and the dangerous world of human trafficking.

“We are gratified that the state has granted a number of our appeals and has agreed cell phones pose a real danger to the girls in our care since they link these vulnerable children back to the people who trafficked them. The cell phone is the preferred mechanism of the trafficker to market and sell under-age girls on the internet. Our organization will continue to challenge and appeal any regulations we feel endanger the children we serve or the staff who serve them.

“We are excited to resume serving girls later this year after we rehire and train appropriate staff. All of our fundraising efforts will be focused on recruiting, hiring and training qualified staff. The state agreed that our pause on accepting new residents was wise in light of new licensing that will allow Courage House to now function as a Short Term Residential Treatment Program (STRTP) instead of a Group Home. ”

The organization, which operates 24-hour residential homes in Tanzania and Northern California as well as an extensive program to educate communities about sex trafficking issues, decided to temporarily close its Northern California site in mid-June as it worked to meet new California licensing requirements, hire staff who meet the new requirements while appealing program citations cited by the state that the organization felt endanger residents and staff.

The Northern California 52 acre property currently has beds for 6 girls with a campus plan to build ten cottages for a total of 60 residents. Currently, Courage Worldwide has completed 85% of the county permitting process to begin construction on the first cottage by year end. The Tanzania home is currently serving 6 girls, with a capacity to serve 12. Courage Worldwide anticipates both homes being at capacity by year end since they have had over 350 requests for placement since opening. Courage House Northern California and Tanzania have been fully operational for 5 years, opening in 2011 for girls age 11 to 17, providing round-the-clock treatment services 365 days a year. Its program has received national recognition and to date over 65 girls have called Courage House home.

Though Courage House Nor Cal paused its residential operations for several months, the organization has been fully operational continuing its extensive education, advocacy and outreach programs as well as support for former residents of its home here in the Sacramento region.

I won’t hold my breath waiting for an apology from Thomas N Hudson. He is of a class of political operatives that live in a relative world and his alleged conservative values are but a thinly veneered resume used to make money. Hudson desperately needed to be right as Courage received money from the Placer CRA when it was dissolved. Hudson re-formed a shell in order to assuage his bruised ego and saw the opportunity for a cheap shot as validation.

In the mean time – a fine upstanding Charity, unique in its’ mission was smeared by the Sacramento Bee, using disgruntled former employees and the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister as delivery vehicles.

Courage Worldwide is not his only recent victim – Hudson wrote a series of deceptive and misleading ballot arguments against a host of measures, regardless of their merits or otherwise. There is no moral inhibition once he thinks he is right on what he does and he got Ken Campbell, Deborah Jackson and others to sign onto his deceptions. Special.

David Evans for Controller Update

As of Today – David Evans is up on John Perez by 1,500 votes.

I have been told that there are about 1,000,000 ballots outstanding. This occurred because many people were very late checking in to the fact that there was an election happening.

The race will likely come down to Los Angeles County. This is where John Perez is from.

For those of you just tuning in, the bizarre scenario is this: Republican Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin is staked to first place. However, Republican David Evans, a CPA from California City is now in second place.

John Perez is the former speaker of the assembly, he has also been the subject of corruption charges and has a variety of issues in his personal life sure to become campaign issues. These contributed to the democrats splitting their votes away to Betty Yee whose last name is unfortunately the same as indicted Democrat Senator Leland Yee.

Got all that? In California’s bizarre and BS election system called the “top two” – #1 and #2 in the primary go to the fall general election. If David Evans places second – there will be a Republican Controller for the first time in 40 years.

Back to LA County. Sources on the ground there tell me that the elections office is like a third-world country. This should be interesting to see how this plays out.

AD73 Race has Bizarre Nexus in Placer County? Convicted Felon Running for Office!

Blogger’s Note: If any of you remember Jesse Petrilla from Del Oro High School and later Placer High, please email me at [email protected] – the incidents were from 2001-2002 time period.


There is a reason why if you have a past in politics, just come out with it. Many in the AD73 area thought that Petrilla had a wild past and Petrilla’s own refusal to come clean about it piqued many people’s curiosity.

The RSM Patch just confirmed what I thought I knew. Jesse Petrilla grew up in my back yard. I live in Rocklin, Jesse lived in the Loomis area. Loomis and Rocklin share a border, both are in Placer County. (Go north on I-5 7 hours to Sacramento, hang a right and another 30 miles toward Reno and you are in Loomis. Rocklin is a few miles sooner)

Petrilla was expelled from Del Oro High School (Which is in Loomis) apparently as a result of these felonies and had to graduate from Placer High School Instead. (Placer High is in Auburn)

Originally, the district attorney charged Petrilla with 12 felony and two misdemeanor crimes, including the sentencing enhancement of using a firearm which included:

  • Three felony counts of assault with a firearm;
  • Four felony counts of shooting at an occupied motor vehicle;
  • One felony count of dissuading a witness from testifying at a trial;
  • Four felony counts of discharging a firearm with gross negligence;
  • One misdemeanor count of exhibiting a firearm;
  • One misdemeanor count of exhibiting a deadly weapon, a chain.

According to court records, all but the first two counts of assault with a firearm were dismissed on Aug. 10, 2001.

Petrilla was granted early release from probation in December 2004. At the completion of Petrilla’s probation, the court downgraded the felonies to misdemeanors and dismissed the charges.

Petrilla did indeed plead guilty to two felonies.

Jesse Nathan Petrilla, now 30, and seeking to represent most of South Orange County in Sacramento in the State Assembly, was in 2010 the youngest city councilman ever elected in Rancho Santa Margarita. Yet before becoming a lawmaker, he fired a .22 caliber rifle at an occupied vehicle about five months before his 18th birthday. Tried as an adult, he was sentenced to 240 days in jail and five years probation.

Basically, the account I was given was that Jesse Petrilla lit up a car full of people with a .22 rifle for no apparent reason. There are other things in Jesse’s past that suggest this was not an isolated incident.

Jesse Petrilla’s behavior pattern over his first term in office has been bizarre and erratic according to accounts I have heard. Given Petrilla’s behavior, his attempts to conceal his past and his lack of repentance for it… now this revelation becomes a problem.

There are three other candidates that are older, allegedly wiser (although I would not give Anna Bryson credit for a thing) and most importantly do not have a police record.

Sources tell me that Anna Bryson’s team has pulled opposition research on all of her opponents. She appears to be expecting to benefit from Independent Expenditures and is planning on scorching the earth. Bill Brough and Paul Glaab had better be ready – because things far less serious than being a wanna-be gang-banger shooting at a car with a .22 are going to be detonated in their faces.

As to Jesse Petrilla? He should simply drop out of the AD73 race now and try to save himself if he wants to get re-elected to the RSM City Council.

The church bells are ringing. The Duke and Duchess of East Roseville have avoided a trip to the archbishop for an annulment.

The Duke of East Roseville is going to rent a throne in Rocklin to extend his reign over the new fiefdom he is seeking. Now the main throne room in East Roseville is untouched by this latest move as the children of the Duke and Duchess will remain and will be hosting several cordials and balls in the vacated palace.

The Serfs of the 1st Senate Fiefdom should not fret – the Duke of East Roseville will return to the palatial estate once the Duke has accomplished his mission. Then the serfs of the 1st Fiefdom will be unrepresented again as they have been used to since the Duke’s reign started.


Has Politics Claimed the Marriage of Placer’s Political Dynasty?

You read here first how Congressman Wally Herger is retiring and how Doug LaMalfa is going to become the heir apparent to the seat.

How does this affect Placer County’s Political Dynasty?

The problem is that Duke of East Roseville has a geographical malady created by the corrupted citizens re-districting commission. His royal majesty has a throne room some 500 yards to the west of a boundary on a map…

The Duchess, however is located properly within her new kingdom as political feudalism shone brightly on her.

This is where the Duke’s delimma comes in. The Duke is running against the Country Preacher from Anderson, CA for a new kingdom – but the Duke could remain in his current kingdom as Doug LaMalfa is expected to vacate his own throne to move up to Washington D.C. fairly easily.

The Duke however, has grown increasingly isolated and risk averse as his reign has continued over the years. He must have missed the memo from the armory about the new order in Northern California as the duke is immune to reason. He is dead set on moving out of his palace in to another palace – leaving the duchess and their children behind to pursue the new kingdom he craves.

Will they be visiting the archbishop for an annulment?

After all the duchess said in public that she didn’t want the Duke to move, but if he did, she’d really miss him…
