There is no doubt at all that Politico is an arm of the democrat party. Recently Politico botched a story claiming Donald Trump owes China Money. It was a lie and as of the writing of this blog they have had to edit the story twice despite face saving attempts to avoid admitting what they did. Recently, Politico also posted inaccurate information about Project Veritas.

While Democrat Congressman Josh Harder and the rest of the House of Representatives under San Francisco’s Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi won’t go back to Washington DC to help the American People, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is continuing to do Harder’s dirty campaigning and is launching an early attack on local veterinarian and Republican Ted Howze. Turlock City News learned just today that a campaign for Harder is circulating several-years-old social media posts and attempting to link them to the Howze Campaign.

The social media posts being circulated by the circles of Harder’s campaign and the DCCC are reportedly from 2017 and 2018. They are also from social media accounts unrelated to the Ted Howze for Congress campaign.

So, here we are in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis and Politico blinked. They are trying to link tweets to Ted Howze and they framed his response to their request for comment in a completely different context than the Turlock City News did. Has Politico been alerted by their handlers in the DCCC that CA-10 is in Jeopardy of falling?

Howze responded to the allegations of anti-Muslim social media posts to Turlock City News by saying, “The posts in question were ugly and I absolutely do not agree with or support them. I’m extremely hurt that these were done by individuals whom unknowingly had access to several of my social media accounts. Like many others, I’ve learned an important lesson about removing personal information from old devices before disposing of them.”

When Politico posted Ted Howze’ response they deleted the two sentences in bold. This is typical for media smear jobs. When Politico posted the lie about President Trump’s finances, the Democrats used the lie to fund-raise with until it was edited. This is how the corrupt legacy media works.

Within minutes of the Politico story going live – this was out by the Harder Campaign:

This is how it works with the legacy media, they print stories that may or may not be true long enough for their preferred candidates to use them

I found the Turlock City News courtesy of a snarky comment left near the end of the politico story as they characterized it as a “Sporadically updated local blog”. Your intrepid blogger is 100% familiar with the contempt the legacy media have for bloggers, I can only imagine how much more intense the disdain is coming from a 20 something social justice warrior reporter looking to influence the outcomes of elections.

The reporter from Politico is Ally Mutnick – quick research indicates that she came to Politico from NPR and she promotes environmental causes on her personal social media. In addition, she has written several stories overstating the democrat party’s strength in the 2020 Congressional Election Cycle. If the democrats were so strong, why did she pen a half-baked story about Ted Howze?

It looks like party time is here early in CA-10.

They are all the same. Website Launches
Incumbent Congressman Josh Harder caught deceiving Valley voters on his two most important campaign promises – public demands he return the money.

CA-10: Midyear FEC campaign fundraising reports have unveiled that an alarming number of 2020 contributions from out-of-state entities, Bay Area special interests and politicians, and Political Action Committees are carrying incumbent Democrat Josh Harder’s campaign for re-election.

Fewer than 10 percent of donors to Josh Harder’s campaign actually reside in California’s 10th Congressional District, and less than 3% of dollars raised have come from local residents. A huge portion of Harder’s donors are from out of state, and also includes help from Party elites like Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Lee.

The report also indicates that Josh Harder has been caught deceiving  local voters about his top campaign promise to “refuse Corporate PAC donations,” and has instead accepted approximately $314,000 in PAC contributions to date.  PAC donors to Harder include PAC to the Future and Jersey Values PAC which count Goldman Sachs, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and a host of capital management companies as some of their biggest contributors.

“Josh needs to return the money he promised local voters he would not take. He can argue and deny all he wants, but he has failed to put the people above the special interests and party bosses in these first nine months,” said Ted Howze, the leading Republican candidate to replace Democrat incumbent Josh Harder.

While incumbent Congressman Josh Harder may be six years younger than the video game PAC-MAN (Harder was born in 1986 and PAC-MAN launched in the U.S, in 1980), he has certainly become very good at playing the game.

I’ve long held that the Sacramento Bee and it’s red-headed stepchild in Modesto may as well be published by the Chinese embassy. They are reliably leftist and it is clear that the Modesto Bee is in the bag for Josh Harder.

Several days ago there was a sting operation netting the brother of a losing Stanislaus County Sheriff’s candidate. Everyone arrested in the operation, save one had a mugshot posted. The one exception had a photo of him where you could see almost his whole body. He was wearing a Republican’s campaign shirt…how convenient.

The Sheriff of San Joaquin County is Pat Withrow. I know Pat Withrow well. I helped defeat him in his first run for Sheriff in 2014. Pat Withrow’s campaign manager is none other than N Allen Sawyer, a man convicted of a felony for his part in the Baxter Dunn Scandal. (Note: Sawyer’s conviction was overturned years later on a technicality)

Withrow is also a reputed ally of the marijuana industry and was a democrat endorsed by the San Joaquin County Democrat Party in 2014. It appears he may have tried to hide as a NPP in 2018, but still was endorsed by the Central Labor Council in 2018.

Your intrepid Blogger fully well expects Withrow to endorse Josh Harder and is also of the opinion that the Shirt Caper was a deliberate act by his department in order to open up a cheap shot against this front-running conservative Harder challenger Ted Howze.

Political insiders in the area indicate that within hours people were calling around about the photo of the person arrested. It is also my opinion based on experience in campaigns that it could have been Josh Harder’s crew and ex-lobbyist/perennial candidate Marla Livengood’s crew shopping the cheat shot to media outlets.

This is where the Modesto Bee comes in. Despite the fact that the man arrested has no connection to that Republican campaign as reported by multiple outlets, the Modesto Bee had another agenda. See the Manteca paper here for an example of local media reports.

Most of the media reported incorrectly that the Howze campaign asked the Sheriff to alter the photo. This is a lie. The Howze campaign asked the Sheriff to use a mugshot since this was the only photo in that sting that wasn’t a mugshot. There is a big difference in semantics. The Howze campaign basically asked the Democrat Sheriff of San Joaquin County to be consistent. Good for them.

Due to the efforts of the Harder / Livengood team, it caused scrutiny of the Sheriff’s actions and forced the implementation of a new policy on booking photos. It also forced an apology from the Sheriff as well.

The Modesto Bee, clearly angered by the fact that they missed a chance to smear a conservative Republican wrote an editorial that may was well have been written by MSNBC or Pravda. Somehow, it was the Republican’s fault this douchebag acquired a campaign shirt and it was the ONLY photo of its kind shown out of 20 something – the exact goal of the Harder/Livengood campaign operatives and their #fakenews effort against the leading candidate. Where have we seen this before?

It is clear your intrepid blogger is going to have to watch the Modesto Bee as they have signaled early that they are the CNN of the Central Valley.
