A conservative Latino’s view on politics…

The California Republican Party (CAGOP) has been losing this state exponentially since 2006. After the utter destruction in the 2018 midterms, publicly disgraced and scandal-ridden former Republican state vice-chair Kristin Olsen conveniently puts the blame on President Donald Trump. Ms. Olsen, a leader in the CAGOP, needs to look in the mirror.

At the lack of programs such as voter registration, not fielding challengers and properly funding them. Not challenging voter fraud. Not preparing for unethical, corrupt but legal “ballot harvesting” that makes voter fraud even easier. Most importantly, ignoring Californians and having a clear conservative message on what Democrats are doing and have done to hurt us all, especially the working-class and poor.

These issues combined with a constant betrayal of “RINO” (Republican in Name Only) politicians continually breaking constituent promises is why California’s a Democrat-controlled state. These are just a few of many CAGOP failures, yet Ms. Olsen blames Trump.

Ms. Olsen knows all this. She’s blaming Trump because he makes a convenient straw man to try to hide CAGOP failures since 2006. This once proud red-state is now deep-blue because Ms. Olsen and the Republican Party chose to ignore and lose touch with, “we the people.”

It’s unsurprising when a publicly humiliated, establishment, elitist blames Trump. Ironic because the CAGOP establishment kneels at the feet of donor masters to promote and bring us Democrat-lite. Instead of embracing the middle and working class and fighting to keep values that create opportunities for the poor and lower-income, she and CAGOP leadership let the Democrat Party successfully lie to constituents. Leading to Democrats creating higher taxes and fees, businesses fleeing the state and making it as difficult as humanly possible for small-business owners to survive. That sickens me. The current Republican Party leadership nauseates me. Ms. Olsen, your words disgust me.

Enough! Yes! Demographics are Changing!

All we’ve heard since 1986 is that demographics are changing. This simply means we have a new group of Americans we must take conservatism to. Instead, Republicans complain. Do you think liberalism is the only political ideology in Mexico? Guatemala? Honduras? Nicaragua? Panama? South America? NO, IT’S NOT! Ms. Olsen, you state, “It’s because the Republican Party has failed to adapt to changing demographics…” Yes, that’s the problem and you’re part of it!

Distancing the CAGOP to play the victim is pitiful. You and the CAGOP haven’t reached out to these communities with a conservative Republican message. It’s not just Latinos but Africans, Asians, Middle-Eastern groups, LGBT and any other group that seeks the “American Dream.” You only reach out to Californians registered Republican. It’s no wonder we keep losing because that’s a shrinking constituency.

On the flip side, Democrats are ready for all groups and especially immigrants. They approach through outreach programs and begin their indoctrination the moment they set foot in this country. Ms. Olsen, you ignore them and now – like a “pajama boy” – you complain and blame President Trump? Sadly, I’ve come to expect this from CAGOP leadership.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

What steroids began shrinking, the California Unions finished by castrating then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Once done, Schwarzenegger kowtowed to his new leftist masters instead of doing the people’s will. He embraced and signed the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32)  that destroyed jobs and was a catalyst toward businesses fleeing the state.

He then promoted and helped pass Proposition 14, the Top-Two Primaries Amendment. The “Jungle Primaries” strengthened the power of the cash-rich unions, deep pocket special-interest groups and the wealthy elites – on both sides of the aisle. It did nothing but hurt the average Californian. Remember, the “Jungle Primaries” was a CAGOP creation by a donor master whose goal was to make the CAGOP center-left.

Let’s not forget, by the end of Schwarzenegger’s tenure, we were down 300,000 in voter registration. Since then, Ms. Olsen’s Republican Party has chosen to abandon registration efforts, dropping us to No. 3 in registered voters behind the Democrats and No Party Preference (NPP). However, according to Ms. Olsen and Schwarzenegger, this is Trump’s fault. The last I checked, Donald Trump became President in 2016, not 1986 or 2006.

Assembly Republican leader Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley)

More Recently? In 2017, eight Republicans led by former Assembly Republican leader Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley) and Assemblyman Rocky Chavez (R-Oceanside), voted for the wallet-busting bill, AB-398. Officially, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006: market-based compliance mechanisms: fire prevention fees: sales and use tax manufacturing exemption, better known as the “cap and trade” bill. An already bad bill, they turned Schwarzenegger’s liberal legacy even more leftist!

These eight betrayed their conservative constituents. To make it worse, conservatives at the following convention, wanted to admonish them, but Ms. Olsen’s CAGOP establishment protected them. State leadership chose to protect Democrat Party and leftist values instead of defending Californians. Especially lower-income and poor constituents who can barely afford California’s cost of living. This, in turn, led to the devastating “gas tax” bill that is costing the average Californian nearly $800 more a year.

“…toxic, national brand of Republican politics.”

Ms. Olsen states, “The California Republican Party isn’t salvageable at this time. The Grand Old Party is dead – partly because it has failed to separate itself from today’s toxic, national brand of Republican politics.” A flat-out lie!

The CAGOP helped promote the same values of the national party. Epitomizing the national brand of bigger government, higher taxes, a growing deficit (see California pension tsunami) and crony capitalism. Ms. Olsen’s been a part of this CAGOP since 2010 while supporting the national brand. Now suddenly, it’s a toxic national brand, and Trump’s the root of the problem? Trump’s not the root of the problem; he’s the result of it because we grew tired of false promises the national party and CAGOP kept breaking.

Ms. Olsen, this is “the pot calling the kettle black.” It’s another try to shift blame from the CAGOP to Trump. You and your lot put us down this road by abandoning what made the Golden state great. When people think of our state, they now think of homelessness, public defecation, hypodermic needles and maps to avoid it. Let’s not forget sanctuary cities protecting criminals. The CAGOP is complicit. The depths Ms. Olsen goes to, to hide CAGOP failings have no shame.

Ms. Olsen states, “It is time for a New Way.” It’s not surprising to see her, Schwarzenegger and Mayes leading the “New Way” bowel movement. Another movement promoting liberal values that’ll keep Californians from achieving the “American Dream.”

“New Way,” A new NeverTrump Hate Group

When you enter the “New Way California” website, you’re greeted with, “IT’S TIME FOR A NEW WAY.” “JOIN US IF YOU THINK THE OLD WAY ISN’T WORKING”

Ms. Olsen, Mayes and Schwarzenegger believe, submissiveness to Democrat big union, big government and big liberal corporate interest in the name of bipartisanship is the “New Way.” Unless I’m mistaken, and I’m not, this “New Way” doctrine’s already in play with the current CAGOP. Legislative voting records prove this as do my examples.

This is another scam… excuse me, “New Way” by NeverTrump RINOs to remain in power and regain relevance. By blaming Trump, it’s a way to distance themselves from broken promises and all the problems they avoided or helped create. They state Trump doesn’t represent CAGOP values, but the “New Way” does?

I disagree and as a Californian for nearly 30 years, a proud conservative Latino and an American, Ms. Olsen’s comments and beliefs don’t ring true. Why? Well…

Some Trump Economic Accomplishments or Where Liberalism and Obama Failed

  • Black and Latino unemployment at a record low.
  • Black business ownership jumped 400 percent in one year.
  • Unemployment claims fell to a 45-year low.
  • Youth unemployment hit a 52-year low.
  • Trump shrunk government jobs by 16,000.
  • Construction jobs are up more than 300,000 compared to 2017.
  • There’re more Americans working than ever before.
  • Trump has consumer confidence at an 18-year high.

Some Trump Conservative Political Accomplishments

  • Trump secured the release of hostages in North Korea and Turkey.
  • Trump gave us two conservative judges for SCOTUS.
  • Trump nominated the first woman to head the CIA.
  • Trump nominated an openly gay man for ambassadorship of Germany.

These are just a fraction of Trump’s accomplishments. President Trump also has an approval rating of 51 percent, despite 90 percent negative mainstream media (MSM) coverage. Higher than former President Barrack Hussein Obama had at the same point in his presidency BUT with 90 percent positive MSM coverage!

Those accomplishments should be the goal of every state Republican Party yet Ms. Olsen refuses to embrace Trump’s accomplishments by cowering to the mainstream media and leftist narrative. That’s one reason we’re in this current state and one reason we have “President Trump.” The CAGOP refuses to fight and defend conservatism – the backbone and values of the Republican Party.

Florida and Georgia Defend Trump and Conservatism and WIN!

Florida Gov.-elect Ron DeSantis campaigned on conservatism while defending President Donald Trump. Touting Trump’s record for the economy and minorities while running against a black candidate, he earned a higher percentage of the black vote (18 percent) than anyone predicted or expected. This, despite race-hustling by his opponent, the Democrat Party, leftists and the MSM.

More black males (11 percent) voted for Georgia Gov.-elect Brian Kemp over a black candidate as well. Also, a race-hustler, this candidate had Obama and Oprah Winfrey campaign for her. Despite this, the message of conservatism backed by truth and fact won many Georgia minorities over. A shock to Democrats and the MSM that expects false narratives and dog whistles to win the day, it proves minorities grow tired of lies, demagoguery and false promises.

Like every other American, an opportunity to achieve the American Dream is all we want. When you defend the truth and use facts Ms. Olsen, you’ll be surprised at how Latinos, blacks and all minorities vote. You’ve just never tried and there lies the problem.

Some will say, these percentages still reflect a group that doesn’t believe in conservatism. Well, we must start somewhere Ms. Olsen. Instead of creating straw men, how about using your leadership position to begin fighting to achieve and grow these numbers. The problem may be; you’re not conservative, and you don’t want to fight for the Republican values you speak of.

Ironic, the party of Lincoln, the Grand Old Party. The party created to end slavery. The party that saw members make the supreme sacrifice. The party that led and helped women’s rights, including their right to vote. The party that led the way for the Civil Rights movement. The party that believed in the American Dream. The California Republican Party that’s now subservient to radical, leftist socialists who believe big government to control us is acceptable.

This has nothing to do with Trump, rather establishment cronies on the verge of losing everything. The little power you have is disintegrating. CAGOP campaign and election incompetence from years of impotence resulted in an epic meltdown of ineptitude by not seeing what the Democrats were doing with ballot harvesting. You and the CAGOP are now scrambling to hide your culpability in the 2018 midterms.

Twenty or 30 years ago, when elitists could control the narrative through the mainstream media, Ms. Olsen’s little article or tantrum as I see it, “My turn: GOP is dead in California. A new way must rise” would’ve worked in deceiving, “we the people.” No more. Finally, she states, “Republican principles used to be about helping other people.”

Ms. Olsen, they still do but the “New Way” doesn’t. The “New Way” is a highway to socialism and why you and your ilk will fail. The current CAGOP establishment ruling class lives off the backs of the people. It’s time for you to step aside and let fiscal, small government conservatives lead the CAGOP and bring back the vision that Abraham Lincoln spoke of and created. That Ronald Reagan implemented and restored. It’s time to give Californians a shot at the “American Dream.”

The Nevada, Kings and Sutter-Yuba RA are being kept on the books in the Time-Honored Thomas N Hudson tradition of paper chapters. It is possible that the defunct Kern River Valley RA was included in Hudson’s number of 41 as well. Solano, Placer, El Dorado, Sacramento, Cosumnes, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Fresno and Porterville are it in the North.

My estimation based on anecdotal evidence (from people all over everywhere that I will cite should Thomas N Hudson’s narcissistic rage result in more than legal demand letters against this blogger…) is that the CRA is down to about 200 members in the entire North State. Those within the CRA will call me a liar and claim the number is 250-270 (which is still pathetic), but no one will know the truth as the CRA is not subject to scrutiny of their membership records because of their “permanent charter” by the CAGOP. More likely is that they will privately fume and remind themselves how right they are as they continue to blame me for their bad behavior.

Several RA Units in the Sacramento / Gold Country area are being kept alive to assuage the bruised egos of the “leadership” of CRA in the North – including the Nevada RA that was the linchpin of the lynching of George and I off of the CRA’s Board. Despite the face-saving manipulation of process, they simply can not stop the wholesale collapse in the South. (nor cover it up)

The Santa Barbara RA has Collapsed. The Ventura RA and N San Fernando RA are not even mentioned anymore. <<< These are two of the units George and I were expelled for allegedly mistreating, however their demise proves they were indeed bogus.

The Pasadena RA is being kept alive on paper. The Santa Clarita RA, a 150 member empire of fraud sent in no delegates in 2017 and is alive only on Paper. The “Leaders” of the Santa Clarita RA whose manipulation and deceit split the CRA’s Board of Directors – Alice Khosravy and Wendy Albright both moved to Florida. Alice Khosravy is still listed as a CRA VP, another face-saving move by the Bathroom Boys and Narcissists in leadership of the CRA. <<< again these were the other two units we were so mean to, we had to be expelled to save the CRA to allow the above 5 units freedom to… die.

This is vindication that George and I were used by the Bathroom Boys and Narcissists on CRA’s leadership as Straw Men for the results of their failures.

The Glendale Burbank RA is being courted by newly minted CROC President Stephen “Gerbilhead” Frank for a hostile takeover in to the moribund CRC that has never had a state convention. The GBRA was about 80 members in the not-too-distant past. It sits somewhere in the 20’s according to information I recently received.

In the South of LA County is the South Bay RA that the Information Minister claims is on the rebound despite the toxic image it has courtesy of Bill Schmidt (also in Florida now) and the crazed G Rick Marshall. Palos Verdes is admitted to be on life support by the ministry of CRA information (aka it is a paper zombie) and the Torrance Lomita RA is a shell of its’ former self.

Riverside County lists one unit – the Murrieta Temecula RA, that can’t get 6 people to a meeting, but allegedly has something like 60 members still. If 60 is indeed true, this is still a 2/3 reduction from just 5 years ago.

San Diego County lists one unit – the terminally 15 member E SD RA

San Bernardino County lists one unit – the Big Bear RA

In Orange County reside about half of the remaining Units of the CRA:

Yorba-Placentia were said to be out of compliance with CRA By-Laws
Ladera Ranch – the same
Rancho Santa Margarita – the same
Westminister – the same
Santa Ana – the same
Fullerton – the same

When the people that expelled George and I are now admitting units are out of compliance with CRA by-laws you know it is bad. We were expelled for trying to get units in to the realm of legitimacy as legitimate units are a threat to control.

S OC RA has fractured down to less than 20 members
Saddleback RA the same

Huntington Beach checks in in the 20’s
Fountain Valley the same
Tustin the same
Newport Beach the same – the legendary Dick Nichols is alleged to no longer be living in CA. Perhaps he has gone to a white supremacist leper colony to live out his golden years with Willis Carto.

This leaves Anaheim and Stanton was the largest CRA units in Orange County that are actually in good standing.

With the above information, it becomes clear why I peg the CRA’s membership in the 600-700 range when you filter for actual dues paying members. Remember, the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister has said publicly that “there is nothing in the By-Laws preventing someone else from paying dues for someone”. This means if you were ever a member of CRA, you may still be on the rolls years later – it was fighting this practice that was also part of the nexus to oust George and I.

Do many of these units even meet? Enter Hudson again, “There is no requirement in the CRA’s By-Laws to keep minutes”. Translation, no one will ever know. It was the fight to get units to actually meet and do things other than send delegates to make worthless endorsements that was also part of the nexus to expel George and I. (see also people’s desire for control, not actually doing anything)

So why the charade? In the next post in this series, I will attempt to explain.

Mar 252017
 

The CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister was the second person I met in Republican Politics way back in 1998. The first was Jeff Atteberry, the immediate past Chairman of the Placer GOP.

Thomas N Hudson, (pictured in a haze with State Senator Ted Gaines at the podium) is the current President of the CRA.

The CRA is the group that Jeff Atteberry recruited me in to back in 1998 after registering me in to the Republican Party. At one point, the CRA boasted nearly 7,000 members statewide and its’ conventions were the stuff of legend.

The California Republican Assembly used to be the endorsement to get if you were a Republican running for office.

It isn’t any more. It really wasn’t when I joined it in 1998. When I joined CRA in 1998, its’ President was the late Dick Mountjoy. Mountjoy was a barnacle stuck in the 1950’s. His protege, Mike Spence went on to serve 3 terms as CRA President.

Spence, who is currently facing felony DUI charges was the father of the pay to play endorsement scheme that beset the CRA pretty much the entire time I was involved in it. At least half of the Chapters were fake. They existed to rise up like a zombie army to influence the outcome of officer elections and endorsements. The most infamous drill were the 25 fake CRA units created to deliver a CRA endorsement to Mitt Romney in 2007.

George and I labored 15 years in vain to change that culture. We wanted to bring legitimacy to the organization, yet the organization itself had a culture that was impervious to integrity.

The wars within CRA sometimes made headlines. The genesis of the hatred between Doug LaMalfa, David Reade and others and myself was born within CRA fights.

In 2015, Both George and I were targeted for elimination. I wrote about it quite a bit. In May of 2015, they set up a board meeting in Santa Barbara, where Tom Hudson appointed 17 of the 30 votes on the CRA’s Board of Directors who voted to ban us for life from the organization.

The final straw was when we uncovered that the Santa Clarita RA, which claimed 150 members was a paper tiger. The Ventura RA, fake. The Pasadena RA, fake. The North San Fernando RA, fake. All were shepherded by Alice Khosravy, the CRA’s Black Widow. By the time we had discovered this, the die was cast. There were too many weak-minded people, conflict avoiders and others with paper thin egos that resented our leadership. They had to expel us in order to cover up for their personal corruption and failures. They did exactly what we knew they would do, wrote up bogus charges, blamed us for everything they did and lit their torches.

The leper colony rose up and threw George and I out.

Today, they are in the middle of their annual convention. It is pathetic. The only reason Ted Gaines is present at the CRA convention is because he is lining up his next office and wants the CRA endorsement for his campaign. Rumor has it that Mr. Hudson has requested a sponsorship in exchange for favorable treatment. Rumor has it that Tom Hudson has made several such requests.

The CRA had roughly 60 people for Friday Dinner. It had Roughly 60 people for Saturday Lunch. It had roughly 40 people for its Saturday AM floor session. The embedded picture is of that Saturday AM floor session.

In 2015, the last convention George and I ran – we had around 200 people who paid to attend with roughly 110 at Friday Dinner, topping out at around 180 for Saturday Dinner.

Despite an attempt to take out George at that convention he won by roughly 20% with around 180 votes cast.

Today’s convention features roughly 60 delegates. It is my estimation that the CRA has about 700-800 real members statewide. The real number will never be known because the permanent charter allows them to escape accountability. It had roughly 1200 members at the time we were expelled, including the 200 some proven fraudulent members we uncovered.

In order to assuage their bruised egos, they are blaming George and I for the demise of the CRA… see how that works? When we were expelled, the assembled board members were told that we needed to go in order to allow the CRA to grow again as an organization. They were told that every problem that beset the CRA was our doing.

Now that the CRA is dead two years later, it is our fault in their minds. It is similar to Barack Hussein Obama blaming Bush for every problem he made worse.

The CRA lists 51 units on their website, yet according to leaks from within the organization, only 25-30 are in good standing. Half again of those are barely holding on with around 15 members. Fully 2/3 of the CRA’s units are dead, fake, zombies, etc. and are kept on the website for a fake appearance – the very thing George and I fought to reform, as it was that crusade to legitimize the CRA that led to our ouster.

I was leaked a copy of the CRA’s most recent financial report showing $51,000 in the bank. I raised $38,000 of it. The conventions George and I ran made huge money until the 2015 convention when the jihad against us caused many to pay registration only. In addition, I simply did not collect on many donation pledges because I had no motivation to with the self-righteous bathroom boys and others lining up to lynch us.

Many current board members of the CRA resented me for raising the money, and still more that accused me of selling influence. They ought to talk to their pol-pot bellied information minister about that. Perhaps it does not matter, as a shell of a once great organization has no resale value.

Many current board members of the CRA resented George for running a tight ship with regard to CRA units renewing. People complained a lot about the scrutiny about following the by-laws. This scrutiny cloaked as George being a meanie was a reason used to expel George.

Now half the CRA’s units have vaporized – including the 5 that we were accused of abusing and mistreating. (The 5th being the Nevada RA, which has not publicly noticed a meeting in several years now) I thought expelling us was supposed to free them to grow, endorse and live their lives out from under the tyranny of the evil Park Brothers. It never happened. They were fake. Many of the board members of CRA that expelled us knew it when they expelled us. Their egos were bruised and their ego was put ahead of the CRA.

Now the CRA is dead. The problem for the inmates is that there are no Park Brothers to blame anymore. The only legacy we left is the big bank balance.

There is a price to being right, and they are reaping it all.

There is a price to being right. Hillary Clinton and the democrats are learning that in real time.

The CRA is learning it in real time.

In several places of the state, the CRA is a non-factor. In others, they are known as a leper colony.

Since the May 2015 board meeting where the self-righteous engaged in a lynching to assuage their bruised egos, the following has happened:

Their State President (the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister Thomas N Hudson) is continuing a downward personal spiral as his divorce is entering its’ 3rd year of legal proceedings. It is my belief that Mr. Hudson is attempting to string the divorce out in order to avoid paying child support on his oldest daughter who is 17. (when she turns 18, he is off the hook) Hudson is also facing scrutiny over his role in the California Taxpayer Protection Racket.

Their Executive Vice President Craig Alexander abruptly resigned, a sure signal of internal strife.

The Vice President, Mark Gardner – a maladjusted bully who was brought in to CRA by a friend of 30+ years who he later helped oust as President of CRA is getting a divorce as well. Gardner, in my opinion is Alice Khosravy’s choice for CRA President to succeed the Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister. Gardner hates Thomas N Hudson as much as Alice, Carl Brickey and others on the CRA’s board do. Gardner was also the instigator of the move to oust George and myself from CRA.

Wendy Albright got fined $10,000 by the FPPC for campaign money laundering. Albright is one of Alice’s Lieutenants and has been a reliable agent of chaos in the High Desert part of Los Angeles County.

Former CRA President Mike Spence is in a mess of trouble. He is also a business partner of Thomas N Hudson in the aforementioned racket.

Without getting too deep in the weeds, there have been a raft of other maladies that have beset various individual board members of the CRA.

I don’t think it is an accident that dishonest, controlling, ego-maniacal ideological narcissists are coming up sick or with their personal lives unraveling. It seems to be the way of things in 2016 politics.

As a bonus, Bill Schmidt, a man I worked with for many years in CRA before I learned of his duplicity worked with Rick Marshall to try to derail the charter of the CIR’s chapter in the South Bay Area of LA County. Both Bill Schmidt and Rick Marshall are regarded as pariahs in LA County and their attempt may well have aided the cause of the CIR as their opposition to the CIR’s charter was all about individual people rather than the merits of any organizations.

The leadership of the CRA is worse than thin. Thomas N Hudson had to scrape the bottom and get a bunch of retreads to fill board seats – kind of like the national dems getting Russ Feingold and Evan Bayh out of retirement to run again for US Senate because their bench is exhausted. The chaos and turmoil is a hallmark of the CRA’s Black Widow as she continues to manipulate people and as their own lack of character breeds its’ results in their own lives – the battlefield is ripe for Alice to repeat her pattern and take over yet another organization.

It could well be that no one wants to be President of the CRA other than the box-wine guzzling Thomas N Hudson. That will be the only way Hudson gets re-elected because despite what these people may say in public, most of the senior board members despise Mr. Hudson. Gotta love the duplicity of these co-called Conservatives.

Aug 212016
 

The slow motion #trainwreck continues in the leper colony known as CRA. It appears that Alice Khosravy, the CRA’s Black Widow is slowly starting to weed out CRA Board Members.

Craig was described as a “Disgusting, Sweaty Pig” by Khosravy deputy Wendy Albright (she of the $10000 FPPC Fine). (I have the screenshots of the texts somewhere, but how could I forget this?)

When I first heard the news, I was hoping that maybe some time away from Politics would help Craig deal with the pious, pompous, self-righteous arrogant streak that has characterized him for years. Maybe a more balanced and mature Alexander would transform from a pariah to someone who used their talents for productive good.

Then I read his resignation email. While he had valid points, the highlights of his character flaws were evident.

Craig pointed out that the CRA needs to get younger and get more members. Alice and crew will never let the CRA grow, a larger organization will be more difficult to control. The two most recent CRA units are fraudulent shells in my opinion and are already beset with infighting.

Craig Alexander was indeed ideally suited for CRA. It appears that Craig has come out on the losing end of an internal pissing match and has decided to take his ball and go home. Such is life in the ineffective debating society known as CRA.

The CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister Tom Hudson – who was recently at the CRA’s OC BBQ (attended by roughly 30 people despite representing 7 remaining CRA units) – is finding himself increasingly isolated.

Hudson, as you may recall is the executive director of a shell organization that is effectively a PAC that endorses and does the usual pay-for-play crap that “Republican Taxpayer Groups” do. While Hudson is emptying the boxes of wine at home, his business partner Mike Spence got in to a major accident and appears to be in major trouble.

Craig Alexander was, until yesterday, Tom Hudson’s firewall and biggest ally in the CRA.

Hudson is privately disdained by most people on the CRA’s board that I know. Most of them lack the character to be honest and open about it until, of course the opportunity arises to participate in the next purge. The Game of Thrones has nothing on the CRA – because at least some of the characters portrayed in the Game of Thrones can function in normal life.
