David Hadley is running for Chairman of the CAGOP.

At the forefront of everyone’s mind is “Ballot Harvesting” and “Was it all Trump’s Fault” in California.

I am not sure how Mr. Hadley can speak to either topic as his comments trashing the President were as out there as any of those made by anyone:

“I have never supported Donald Trump and I’m not supporting him now,” Hadley said in a telephone interview Monday. “I’d love nothing more than to have him step down and be replaced.”

David Hadley skipped voting on AB 1461 – Automatic voter registration. This is the very bill that enabled the DMV’s registering over 50,000 illegal aliens and led to mass errors with registrations.

5 Counties in California mail ballots to every registered voter, what could possibly go wrong?

David Hadley voted yes on SB450 – which enabled the now automatically registered voters to get ballots in the mail automatically. SB450 eliminated polling places instead replacing them with mail ballot voting centers – making it easier to harvest ballots.

In addition, the bill Hadley Skipped, AB 1461 also makes prosecuting illegal alien voters nearly impossible.

David Hadley, the erstwhile chairman of the CAGOP was not done there. He also voted for SB 1107 in 2016, which created publicly financed campaigns. Fortunately this disaster did not make it out of the Assembly.

That’s correct, David Hadley voted for Publicly Financed Campaigns and is now campaigning on his ability to fundraise. I am not sure how supporting the elimination of private donors is consistent with party-building. I am also not sure how eliminating poll voting and mailing out millions of ballots willy-nilly increases election integrity.

In our next installment, we will detail how the man who wants to be your chairman also sought to hamstring fundraising. That’s correct, David Hadley’s main push is his ability to raise money. You will be shocked to see what he did beyond supporting Publicly Financed Campaigns…

Dear Mr Hadley –

I am Aaron, I am a blogger and 20+ year member of the CAGOP. You and I know each other politically, having once shaken hands at a Riverside GOP Meeting. You are good buddies with one of the Senior Board Members of the CIR who has loyally and steadfastly sung your praises to the organization. You probably knew me by reputation long before we met in person.

I wanted to share a few things with you in a serious, non-sarcastic manner, from one man of faith to another.

If you are a Conservative and a Christian, you usually don’t need to tell anyone as such. Normal on-fire Christians will display their values clearly, such as your faithful marriage, your history in business and your Children who seem to be fine human beings. I have respect for your personal life which is why I am perplexed at the email you sent out playing the “Jesus Card”.

There seems to be a disconnect between your personal faith and what you did as an assemblymember. When in the Assembly, you did not return the California Pro-Life Council’s Scorecard. I appreciate that you claim to be pro-life, but people know we are Christians by the fruits of our actions – not high scores (for a Republican) from Planned Parenthood or a 65% Scores (good for a D Rating) from the American Conservative Union in 2016.

Interestingly enough, I am curious what section of the Bible provided justification for AB1643 in 2016 that would have enshrined Gender Dysphoria in the Worker’s Comp System, ending the sound actuarial practice of using gender in claims management. This bill was so bad that even Jerry brown vetoed it. Why did you vote yes?

The Bible is clear about role of the Church in Charity, but as an assemblymember you took it a step further, voting for increases in welfare and several other benefit mandates by government. As a man of faith, you should recognize that the Church should provide Charity not the government. (It is also in the CAGOP Platform as well) I will be listing said votes in future posts.

I also believe that skipping voting on AB1887 (2016) which banned official California Travel to states with biblical values (see also understanding what gender means) is another issue that you need to address and resolve. Jesus was clear about the need for boldness and integrity in one’s values. This means standing up for Christ even when it would have cost you votes.

Jesus Christ was clear when he walked the earth, that being “Seeker Friendly” aka trying to find the lost means introducing them to a new way of thinking through renewal in Christ. Jesus never spoke about handing out free stuff as an inducement to join the church and the New Testament is replete with stories about the consequences of compromise. Mr. Hadley, when you have taken dozens, maybe hundreds of votes that are in line with the democrat party platform, it creates confusion in the minds of Seekers of the Republican Party.

None of these actions helped you when the democrats came after you and unseated you in 2016. The rationale that most moderates use is “voting your district”, yet without fail, the democrats pursue Republicans (moderate and conservative) with equal passion and vitriol.

It is not unreasonable for us, the GOP faithful, to take pause when comparing your actions to the stated values of our party. Are you going to try to lead a massive revision of the GOP Platform? How should we reconcile your past inflammatory comments against the President of the United States? Do you align with the so-called Republicans that are calling for division and calling the supporters of the President Racists? What will you do as chairman to respond to these people that seek to divide the GOP like this? (as this is not dissimilar to an intra-church fight) Will you call these people out in the media? Will you take on Governor Newsom in the Media?

Mr. Hadley, when I wrote that I could not reconcile myself with your record as a member of the Assembly, I had done some research. I have a list of issues with proof.

In the past, I had believed things (and believed them when I wrote them) about Travis Allen that simply were and are not true. Would you be willing to stand up and admit it if you were wrong? This is unheard of in politics.

Mr. Hadley, I respect your private life and your family. There is no criticism of you as a man at all. I just think you are wrong politically and I will have a hard time trusting you to stick up for the President or the rank and file Republican (most of whom) are more Conservative than you are.

As a man of faith, I’d also like to close with this: It was absolutely heartbreaking to see the public meltdown of Kristen Olsen and Chad Mayes (which is ongoing). They both claimed the same faith we do. When you play the faith card it is extremely risky as it shines a spotlight on your imperfect self. Doing so in the public eye can also cause your imperfections to keep other people from finding the faith that we cherish and rely upon for our daily lives.

You can’t un-send that email, but I’d remind you and anyone else of the cautionary tale of the Mayes/Olsen affair, meltdown, their arrogance and Chad Mayes’ destructive rampage on his way out of leadership. Many times, I’ve had people invoke that when I discuss my faith with them. Mr. Hadley, you’ve raised the bar on yourself to an extremely high standard by doing what you did. I am not sure if you were prepared for the consequences.

I am not sure what your next move is Mr. Hadley, but had I been part of your team, I’d have advised you against religious pandering.

One of my first clues the CAGOP was terminally ill was a few years ago when talking to a GOP Elected (who will remain nameless) that told me that they were not funding voter registration because they determined it would have no effect.

Read that first sentence again.

Isn’t the first function of a political party to register new voters?

What exactly is the CAGOP Chairman going to raise money for if it is not for registering voters?

Everyone thinks they know why the CAGOP got slaughtered at the ballot box. Everyone seems to agree that the CAGOP was flatfooted (once again) and did not adapt to the changes in the rules.

Will David Hadley raise money to pay the same people that failed in 2016 and 2018 to advance the ball?

In our first post about David Hadley, we took him to task for calling on the President of the United States to drop out of the 2016 Presidential Election and for calling him unfit for office. Given that a lot of the oligarchy of controlled failure are trying to pre-determine the outcome of the CAGOP Officer Elections as I type this, and many of them are openly hostile to the President as well, will David Hadley be raising money to further this group?

Repeatedly, I am being told by CAGOP insiders that “Trump is Toxic” in California, and the solution presented is to dump on the President as if somehow that will solve a problem at the ballot box. Extreme left-wing Republican Catherine Baker got ballot harvested right out of office just as fast as other more conservative members of Congress/the State Legislature did.

Given what I have seen in CAGOP Politics for 20 years, will David Hadley’s money be used to further an institutional bias against Conservative Candidates? In 2002, I watched when the CAGOP Leadership poured $10MM in to Greg Conlon (recognize that name? He has been running for Treasurer for at least 20 years) and gave then Controller Candidate Tom McClintock almost nothing. The kicker? Conlon, a moderate was down 11%, and McClintock was actually up ultimately losing by 30,000 votes statewide.

Time and Time again, regardless of who the CAGOP Chairman has been, we’ve seen “Leadership” favor liberal-moderate candidates. Even the “California Trailblazers” which claims to not have an ideological bent, favors moderates. Their officers also double as consultants for “Leadership”. (You may be hearing from some of them attempting to harvest your CAGOP Delegate Proxy Vote for the Upcoming Convention)

Will David Hadley’s Money be used in accordance with this tradition?

In my day job, I sell Insurance. I need to have something compelling to say and offer people or they can simply go buy their insurance from someone else. In the case of David Hadley, his support base is the Oligarchy of Controlled Failure. In essence David Hadley has to promise donors more of the same in order to get the same donors to give money.

PG&E, Chevron, CREPAC (the Realtors), JOBSPAC (the Chamber of Commerce), A Billionaire Donor, the Charter School People and a few others have funded so-called independent expenditure efforts for at least the last 6 years in California. They supported liberal Republicans over more Conservative Candidates. For example, they spent $3 Million attacking the author of Prop 8 Andy Pugno, $300K against Brian Dahle, $2MM in favor of Frank Bigelow’s original election, $1MM in favor of Rocky Chavez (including attacking his conservative opponent) original election, $1MM on Heath Flora (a cap and trade vote) over Ken Vogel and the list goes on.

That’s right, Millions spent choosing liberal/moderate republicans in safe seats over Conservatives. Now, these same people claim to have the solution to all that ails us – David Hadley.

The previously mentioned donors donated a fraction of what they had previously donated in 2018. <<< Read that again. Most of the Independent Efforts were directed at Statewide offices and/or Congressional Races.

David Hadley lost Re-Election despite having over $1Million AND getting massive Independent Expenditures on his behalf.

So, the existing tiny pool of donors shrunk and even when Hadley had a fair amount of money to use he lost.

And David Hadley is the candidate of the same.

The bottom line, if you are a CAGOP Delegate, you will get the letter in the mail from Kevin McCarthy and “Leadership” trying to harvest your proxy vote. Paid operatives will call you looking to Harvest your Proxy Vote. Ask questions, who is paying them? What will they do with the Proxy? What is David Hadley going to do in order to produce a different result for the CAGOP if you give these folks your proxy?

You won’t hear anything new. Now, I am laying out the case for why I am supporting Travis Allen. See below from his recent article on the Flash Report:

To win, the Republican Party must start registering Republicans voters statewide again. From community gatherings to grocery stores to immigration ceremonies, statewide voter registration must be the primary mission of the Republican Party and the cornerstone of the revitalization of Republican organizations. Street by street precinct operations must be built from the ground up, with everyday Californians recruited to protect their own neighborhoods from the ravages of Democrat machine politicians. A statewide grassroots army, drawn from 5 million California Republicans and millions more conservative minded independents, must be systematically organized, funded, and engaged.

Ordinary Californians must be given the opportunity to directly invest in rebuilding the Republican Party with a simple idea, the California 100,000: $10 a month, donated automatically by 100,000 Californians, to solely fund statewide voter registration. This ongoing funding will be independent of traditional fundraising sources, and will energize volunteer organizations to organically grow Republican majorities at every local level. After all, $10 a month is cheaper than moving to Texas.

Doing stuff like this is not glamorous and takes a lot of effort. Doing stuff like this means sharing the spotlight, not caring who gets the credit and risking losing control. Travis Allen is laying out a plan with specifics for how to re-engage the rank and file Republican Voter that has been ignored by the Oligarchy of Controlled Failure. Travis Allen is attempting to engage Republican grassroots while David Hadley and his team are attempting to Harvest Proxy votes in order to win. There is your contrast folks. It is time to break the cycle of failure – Travis Allen for CAGOP Chairman.

A lot was made over John Cox not supporting President Trump in 2016. A governor candidate in a dark blue state is a different deal than a Party Chairman candidate. In California, you have 25% and falling of the electorate that are registered Republicans. You’re going to need democrat votes, so a decision to not support then candidate Trump not as problematic as attempting to be the leader of that same candidate’s party.

David Hadley said the following in 2016 while in the process of losing re-election:

“I have never supported Donald Trump and I’m not supporting him now,” Hadley said in a telephone interview Monday. “I’d love nothing more than to have him step down and be replaced.”

The unfortunate fact is that many on the inside of the GOP share this sentiment. It is the opinion of this blogger that this small oligarchy of Republican insiders are the same people that have turned the “Leadership Drill” loose on Mr. Hadley’s behalf.

It is alleged to this blogger that President Trump is 30 points underwater in favorability rating in California. However, those same polls show him still up 2-1 among California Republicans.

So, something like 70% of the GOP approve of the President. David Hadley is running for Chairman of said GOP. This creates a problem.

“Here is the bottom line: I am not voting for either Secretary Clinton or Mr. Trump,” Hadley wrote in an op-ed in the Daily Breeze. “Both have shown themselves unfit for the highest office in the land. Neither reflects the South Bay values that this citizen legislator is trying to bring to Sacramento.”

Got it? Would be CAGOP Chairman David Hadley called for President Trump to drop out of the race and called him unfit to hold office. This is not a winning message for a candidate seeking to unify a party that just received a historic drubbing at the ballot box. How can a would-be party leader try and rally the party when he refused to support its’ nominee for the highest office in America? What kind of message does this send? How can he enforce any discipline in the ranks of the GOP as we attempt to eek out some gains in 2020 or future elections?

Congressman Kevin McCarthy has to know this about David Hadley. There is no way McCarthy can sell the President on David Hadley, rather, it is rational to assume that the White House will simply write off California and leave the remaining 7 Members of Congress to fend for themselves while the ballot-harvesting wolves come for them. What is GOP Kingmaker Luis Buhler and Congressman McCarthy trying to accomplish by foisting this guy upon the CAGOP?

When I first got involved in the CAGOP, I was warned by a then legislative staffer that the if the “Moderates” took over control of the CAGOP, they would kill it faster than the bumbling Conservatives ever could. The Moderates took over the CAGOP in 2010 courtesy of the largess of a single donor. In that time, we’ve lost 10 seats in the Assembly, 5 in the State Senate and 10 members of Congress. Heck, throw in all the state-wides and a Board of Equalization Seat while you’re at it.

But they had control of everything and hired the same people time and again, and they did the same things time and time again.

Regardless of who the paid consultants or campaign tactics were/are, the evidence is clear – when voters can’t see a difference, they choose the real thing. (speaking of being pro-choice) If the Chairman of the California GOP is an avowed never-trumper, then what reason is there for Conservatives in California to rally to the cause? How do you attract liberals to a second party that opposes the President? (Hint there already is a party that opposes the President) This is a serious question.

The above said, then what do you donate to? The #1 selling point on David Hadley is his alleged ability to raise money. Who donates to the CAGOP when the Chairman has alienated the White House? Who donates to the GOP when it is barely distinct from the CADEMS?

David Hadley had a running start, being appointed Vice Chairman of the party to fill the vacancy created after Kristen Olsen was forced to resign in humiliation and disgrace after her affair with Cap and Traitor Chad Mayes became public. While Hadley’s fellow liberal Republicans Chad Mayes and Kristen Olsen have been on a public rampage to assuage their bruised egos, Hadley has failed to rally or inspire people despite his numerous appearances. This is why the insiders (most of whom are fellow Never-Trumpers) are left to try to organize an insider Proxy Harvesting Drill to try and harvest CAGOP Proxy Ballots to pre-ordain the outcome of the upcoming party officer elections.

How will CAGOP Delegates feel if said Proxy Harvesting Drill succeeds? How does David Hadley deal with the resentments the rank-and-file delegates will feel knowing that their votes were overridden by a paid Proxy Harvesting drill?

Speaking of Chad Mayes and Kristen Olsen, they are starting a 3rd Political Party and are supposed to be making a “big announcement” soon. Will David Hadley publicly call them out for their personal behavior and their ego-fueled rampage at the expense of us all?

To Be Continued…

P.S. Some people criticize Travis Allen for being late to the Trump Game as he only endorsed the President in April of 2016. I worked for one of President Trump’s opponents in November 2015-Feb 2016 in Nevada. I came around to President Trump when my guy Ben Carson endorsed him in March of 2016. Both Travis Allen and myself did something David Hadley never did – we endorsed Candidate Trump before he was elected President.

For those of you that read this blog, one of my pastimes is weasel-stomping.

One would think that a made man like Mike Madrid who just got done ripping off Antonio Villariagosa for six figures would be in escrow for a new spread in Bel-Aire near his former client.

Instead, Madrid is reduced to renting space in his head to your intrepid blogger. It also looks like some dem consultants are enabling his psychosis.

If I was a dem consultant, I’d feed Madrid more Kool-Aid for his rampage.

As a reminder – from our first post on Mike Madrid:

For a small sum, a democrat can purchase the services of Manchurian Republican Mike Madrid. And part of the “Value” you will receive is him venting his frustration on straw men so he does not have to own responsibility for making a horrible life choice. It is much easier to declare the GOP dead once you’ve gotten your 100,000 pieces of silver, and easier still when you have to cover your bruised ego from losing to someone you outspent 4-1, failing to reach 20% of the vote with a combined aggregate for $50MM spent.

Mike Madrid is seeking to participate in the Chad Mayes / Kristen Olsen Narcissistic Rage, cloaking their feelings of inadequacy and irrelevance in the old tired rhetoric of the move left GOP crowd.

Madrid also went on to attack both John Cox and Travis Allen – which makes sense as their performance in the Primary was humiliating to Mr. Madrid. (ahem, Travis Allen finished a very close 5th to Villariagosa’s 3rd… and John Cox finished a strong 2nd) The focus of his attack was immigration politics, a go to for GOP Critics to use in order to cloak other personal issues.

Madrid should also know a few things about Immigration – witness a past campaign he managed: (Mike Madrid Ran John Geranios’ Campaign)

Ask Republican John Geranios why voters should elect him to represent the 43rd Assembly District and he starts gushing.

“I’m the absolute dream candidate for this district,” he enthusiastically explains. “I’m a perfect match for the values of the voters here. . . . I’m fiscally conservative and I’m anti-illegal immigration.”

$1ooK+ can buy a conscience it appears.

Madrid was a past executive director for the California GOP and he easily and without reservation promoted candidates with positions that today have him calling everyone a racist. In the case of your intrepid blogger – Mr. Madrid called me a Nazi.

Every psycho needs enablers. In the case of Mike Madrid, most of his enablers are dem consultants that know he is a useful idiot and are playing his ego fueled rampage to the hilt.

However, it looks like the LA Times approves of calling your intrepid blogger (see the reporter – Javier Panzar) a nazi as do two top California Democrat Party Consultants – Steve Maviglio and Garry South who studied English in Bejing.

What is a fun and humorous addition is Luis Alvarado, long given an exemption for his visceral hatred of Donald Trump because he is a “Nice Guy” – well here he is in all his glory. It looks like I may be following up on Mr. Alvarado soon. Alvarado is a follower of Mike Madrid who is the unstable ringleader of the rampage against anything Republican in California.

Stephanie McGann Jantzen was Roger Niello’s campaign manager when he ran for State Senate in 2010. I supported Niello’s opponent due 100% to Niello voting for what was then the second largest tax increase in State History. This was the state budget that led to Anthony Adams being recalled from the Assembly. Niello also supported Proposition 14, the Jungle Primary initiative that has created numerous democrat versus democrat general elections.

Her presence on this list of people calling your intrepid blogger a nazi indicates there is a 10 year old grudge. This is common in the world of politics. Included for your enjoyment is a photo of me astroturfing a Roger Niello bus stop. Apparently, this scarred Ms. Jantzen for life, or perhaps supporting lower taxes and smaller government makes one a Nazi.  (BTW – Roger Niello has moved on and we’ve had at least one good chat in the intervening years)

Scott Lay even jumped in on the action. He is a democrat operative with a following, this is not his first time calling me a racist / nazi in order to gain political advantage. Apparently, this is a thing for liberals.

So far this year, your intrepid blogger has received 2.2 Million visits on the RightonDaily Blog. I’d sincerely like to thank the top democrat consultants, the LA Times and the Republicans nursing grudges for the promotion. Hopefully, 2019 will be an even bigger year for Right on Daily.

Mike Madrid needs professional help, that is clear. Anyone enabling him is complicit in the psychosis. All of this comes with consequences.

in the Meantime your intrepid blogger is living #RENTFREE in the heads of more weasels.
