AD73 Assemblyman William “Bill” Brough – a man I believe is a a pig, an alcoholic, a rapist and a serial abuser of women has consistently blamed the Orange County Toll Road Authority (OCTCA) for his downfall. While Brough may never admit his alcoholism or sexual misconduct – the OCTCA has been on defense for the last 5 years ( long before the truth about Brough’s double life was known) and certainly did not have the where-with-all to do a thing to anyone in any office. Meantime, the San Clemente City Government may well have just exposed themselves to civil liability and criminal prosecution regarding their role in trying to thwart the OCTCA from accomplishing their mission.

CA-49 Candidate Bryan Maryott and former Senate Permanent Minority Leader Pat Bates were also in on the cabal against extending the Toll Road in South Orange County.

The two women that came forward to tell me their stories of being raped by Bill Brough certainly were not connected to me by the OCTCA. None of the info I disseminated about William “Bill” Brough was from the OCTCA – people were all too willing to talk to me about Brough.

The OCTCA has been under assault from the Sun-Tzu quoting Harvey Englander since 10-2015.

In past blogs – you’ve read our expose about Harvey Englander and his antics. Let me summarize them:

Part One of Our Expose on San Clemente and Harvey Englander. He loses the TCA Contract then goes to San Clemente to get hired to oppose the TCA’s planned Toll Road Expansion.

In Part Two of Our Expose on San Clemente and Harvey Englander we detailed how Englander was abusing Public Records Requests (over 100 of them), triggering audits of the consultant that beat his firm for the contract, organizing intimidation of local electeds and organizing the talking points of local opponents and supportive local electeds and the like. It was nothing short of running a protection racket.

In Part Three of Our Expose on San Clemente and Harvey Englander – we detailed the only publicly known payment to Englander ($97,000) and local elected Kathy Ward publicly attacking the OCTCA that she was a member of. The expose’ also included a link to a poll mistakenly published by Englander and a fake facebook page Englander and crew were running.

I have known Jeff Corless for years. I watched him get smeared by Harvey Englander on behalf of the City of San Clemente. I also watched in horror as good people like Don Wagner vented their frustration with Jeff by accusing him of felonies from the daius of their local government chambers. While I was prone to doubt his integrity due to the effectiveness of the smears, Venture Strategic has passed 4 audits. Rumors of a Grand Jury investigation have never been corroborated.

Unlike the others that have attacked Mr. Corless, I apologized to him man-to-man for doubting and starting to believe the smears.

Read the article detailing the vindication of Jeff Corless and Venture Strategic here.

Jeff Corless and Venture Strategic were targeted by Harvey Englander. I am convinced of it. EKA is the entity mentioned in public records that was paid by San Clemente and it is Harvey’s Consulting Firm.

I am not going to hold my breath waiting for Don Wagner and others to apologize to Jeff Corless for accusing him of felonies or participating in efforts to destroy his business – this sort of unethical behavior is commonplace in politics. Corless worked for a political opponent to Don Wagner, that alone is grounds for felony imprisonment apparently.

But Harvey Englander appears to have been getting $32,500 a month to file lawsuits, public records requests, oragnize opposition, run facebook pages and other sundry smear campaigns. Don’t take my word for it – the City of San Clemente just admitted as such in their reports. We have only been able to confirm $97,000 to EKA up to this point, now the City of San Clemente in City Meeting Minutes states that EKA was being paid $32,500 a month.

Please also note that a confidential informant with direct knowledge who was also involved with Gene James’ City Council Effort indicated to me that “Englander got paid a lot of money, somewhere around $2 Million”. The conversation I had with the informant was verbal and the informant requested confidentiality at the time, thus I refrained from writing about it in any detail beyond that quote.

So let your intrepid blogger ask some questions:

Did EKA get paid $32,500 a month since 10-2015 when they were officially “hired” by the City of San Clemente? Was it some shorter period? If so when?  From 10-2015 this almost exactly adds up to the $2 Million one of my informants told me Englander got paid as of late last year when I was told as such.

Why have public records requests not been able to uncover the payments? Where they hidden in contracts with other city contractors? If so, through whom?

It has been alleged without proof that EKA’s payments were being hidden through one of the City’s Contract Attorney’s – likely one of the firms filing lawsuits (I think were frivolous by the way) against the OCTCA. That theory is as plausible as any.

It is time for OC District Attorney Todd Spitzer to take a break from retaliating against political opponents to climb up every orifice of the City of San Clemente. That City is a total mess. Frankly, Spitzer should look in to the criminal allegations against William “Bill” Brough as well, now that we know at least two of the female victims had their claims validated by the Working Committee in the State Legislature.

BONUS: Harvey Englander’s Nephew has been indicted for corruption related to selling influence on the LA City Council. Mitchell Englander is pleading guilty to felonies related to taking bribes, gifts and the like from people with business before the city. I guess it runs in the family. If OC DA Todd Spitzer was willing to do his job, perhaps Uncle Harvey could be a cellmate for his Nephew? (If that form of money laundering between San Clemente and Englander (that is what it looks like to me) is not a felony, I will gladly correct this blog)

Lastly, William “Bill” Brough and Senator Pat Bates have both attempted to run legislation to kill the Toll Road expansion in Southern Orange County based largely off of the smears of EKA paid for by the City of San Clemente. Brough, because he saw a chance to get more campaign cash to feed his lifestyle and Bates because she has gone nearly insane with rage over the demolition of her protege Bill Brough. She has repeatedly defended William “Bill” Brough because it appears the 80 year old Bates has determined that admitting a mistake is worse than the annihilation of her own credibility.

BONUS 2: Meantime Well-Known Republican Operative Sam Oh is trying to wreck CA45 Nominee Greg Raths despite the National Importance of that race. Orange County is a mess.

The OCGOP has a lot of issues as the democrats have overtaken them in registration – look no further than the behavior of San Clemente, Bill Brough, Bryan Maryott, Pat Bates, Don Wagner and others with regard to the OCTCA as a part of the long list of poor decisions that have contributed to the dispersion of Republican dominance in Orange County.

OCDA Todd Spitzer. Time to do your job. Find the money. $390,000 a year is damn hard to hide.

Did you know that Katie Hill’s CA-25 Scandal has gone national? Here is the Washington Post trying to help her out. She denied having an affair in that national “media publication”, just as Red State Blogger Jennifer Van Laar unloaded part 2 and 3 of her expose’ with TEXT MESSAGES proving the whole saga! Will ethics charges be next for the budding communist hero whose campaign got national media attention? (The attention was based 100% on her being a switch-hitter)

Deanna Lorraine Tesoriero from CA-12 running against Pelosi continues to make a fool of herself. On the heels of having 10 people (that’s it, 10) for a copycat event in San Francisco here she is on video explaining the failure of her campaign. This stuff writes itself. we’ve also posted video of her partying like a rock star in Florida, too.

I’ve spent a lot of time on Orange County politics lately, here are a few updates that have come across the transom:

Some people have been going through William “Bill” Brough withdrawals. Billy Boy has some problems. #1 the people that are sending official OCGOP mail for Gene James forgot to mention Bill Brough as a major supporter. (No mention of Bill Brough anywhere, period) #2 Your intrepid blogger has been told that Bill Brough has been cut off in Sacramento by legislative leadership. #3 Your intrepid blogger got recent information that the investigation in to Billy Boy’s philandering and Campaign Finances are white hot with several people being called. When calls are made people talk.

Your intrepid blogger also got some public records related to Bill Brough and I spent most of the afternoon laughing uncontrollably. #RENTFREE

Bill Brough’s world is about to shrink some more. Might I suggest the following for a campaign theme song: Brough for Assembly. If Brough is fortunate, 4% Kelly might sing backup on the song for him.

Speaking of 4% Kelly – her supporters on the OCGOP were left to push the worn-out 90’s era consultant strategy of “No Endorsement”. This is the feckless cowardly stance that the “Republican Party should not pick winners and losers”. This is code for we don’t like what is coming. In order to make sure there was chaos, Kelly Ernby put the wine bottle down and had about a dozen Anti-Vaxxers present at the meeting to bully some of the more cowardly members of the OCGOP.

Ernby has even greater problems – the people that suffice for GOP Leadership in California have endorsed Diane Dixon. Kelly Empty is reputed to have very little to work with financially, given that Anne Dunsmore and Duane Dichara are both on the payroll for significant sums, she will be broke soon.

Remember the OCGOP’s recent endorsement that was a limp-wristed slap to Bill Brough despite the incontrovertible evidence of his malfeasance? Given that weakness, I can imagine how Ernby and crew would be emboldened to attempt bully tactics.

OCGOP Leadership failures and cowardice seem to be the order of battle – except when it came to Gene James. OCGOP Chair Feckless Fred Whitaker is reputed to have helped push the endorsement of Gene James through the OCGOP. One of the few times Fred Whitaker has shown real resolve is in the face of 11 Tax Liens, 4 Civil Judgement, multiple abuse complaints, a foreclosure, wage garnishments, poor credit and video evidence of vigilante behavior  – Fred Whitaker stood by his man. Would Fred need to see what 15 tax liens before he reconsiders an endorsement? Another judgement or two? A homeless dude in the hospital? What about the OCGOP itself?

Apparently, the aforementioned Bully Gene James and Crew went 15 rounds with the Commie Pinko 20 Year Old Jackson Hinkle at the San Clemente Farmer’s Market. (I guess Ernby will provide the under-card in November when the OCGOP decides between cowardice and taking a stand in AD74)

Mickey McLane will get his 500 votes, but his account of circumstances is what it is. I have feelers out to obtain a copy of the police report. I am hoping it is as definitive as the issues of Gene James bullying and attacking the homeless people.

Bottoms Up Guys! This is Orange County Politics! (Look for another piece of mail to come from the OCGOP extolling the virtues of Gene James)

I urge people looking for an alternative to the Communist Jackson Hinkle and the Monster Gene James to support Christina Setler for San Clemente City Council. 

Mail. With an OCGOP endorsement you get $.25 stamps vs $.50 stamps. The bulk mail permit is a big deal. I’ve been of the opinion that the OCGOP Endorsement was pushed hard by political insiders and was a joke. Now we see the endgame. I was pretty much done writing about Gene James until I received a copy of the OCGOP mailer. I can’t sit in silence with the only political party I have ever known following this disaster off a cliff.

Read More about Jackson Hinkle Here. < this is the democrat supported candidate. (See also #OCCUPYICE #ANITFA, etc…)

I will follow up later on how this mailer was financed and who produced it. I don’t have enough proof to pin it on the owner of the outlet mall (only a $25K check to the OCGOP by him) for financing it or Jim Bieber for producing and sending this out. I can only tell you it is my opinion that those two were the players.

The OCGOP should be ashamed of themselves for endorsing this disaster. Note that Assemblyman William “Bill” Brough is nowhere to be found on this mailer.

Research has indicated several new issues about Gene James – a foreclosure in 2011, a wage garnishment in 2012 because he refused to pay a $12,000 Judgement despite earning $300k a year and the Federal Tax Lien was actually 8 liens levied over a 3 year period.

The Gene James Scorecard:
8 Federal Tax Liens
3 State Tax Liens
1 Foreclosure
4 Civil Judgments

Get a good look – 8 separate liens levied on 7 separate dates spread out over 4 years!

You don’t get 11 lifetime tax liens from being a responsible citizen. Given that Gene James first judgment occurred in 1992, he has a lifetime pattern of willfully refusing to pay his bills. Gene James can not be trusted to manage the finances of San Clemente under any circumstances, much less the cop-hating communist Jackson Hinkle.

Your Intrepid Blogger is also in receipt of documents from the divorce from his second wife. The Marriage lasted 11 months. In the Divorce Documents, it clearly states that Gene James was making $305,000 a year as the national loss control officer for Jack in the Box.

Despite making $305,000 a year, Gene James could not afford to pay cash for a car nor qualify for an auto loan. Quoting the divorce documents:

Despite Respondent’s claims that he earns $305,000 per year or more, he has a very bad credit history. Recently, he attempted to finance a vehicle and was unable to secure suitable financing without my assistance. We jointly purchased a 2008 Honda Accord, which Respondent Drives. I request that Respondent be ordered to make all of the payments on the vehicle during the pendency of these proceedings and until a determination is made regarding to whom the vehicle will be rewarded.

There is a theme here. From another Ex (this is an ex-girlfriend)

XXXXX met Gene on Match.com in 2003, Gene represented himself as divorced.  He was extremely attentive to XXXXX and her 2 young sons, 7 and 9 yrs, in the beginning and quickly moved into their home.  They got engaged and Gene spoke to her sons about changing their last name to James.   Gene wasn’t divorced but was separated from his 1st wife, YYYY.  YYYY and their sons lived in Ohio.  They had 3 sons, about 21+ yrs, about 18 yrs and 15 yrs.  He had a verbally violent relationship with YYYY; screaming and cursing at her whenever there was phone contact.  Gene wanted to purchase a large screen TV and stand in 2004 and was unable to qualify for the credit card.  Diane found a court judgment paper under the passenger seat of Gene’s company car and saw that AVI Food Systems, his prior employer, had a large judgment against Gene in an amount close to $50,000.  It was then discovered that Gene had not filed or paid Federal or State taxes since 2001He refused to file taxes or address the judgment.  Collection agencies are now calling and sending letters to Gene.  Gene had defaulted on several credit cards after maxing out the credit limit.  He negotiated a much smaller amount to pay these off and borrowed $25000 from XXXXX, that she had borrowed against a home equity loan…

Gene’s second wife got a $12,000 Judgement against Gene James. If you read pages 5 and 6 of the documents – she had to Garnish Gene James’ wages to get the final $6,000 as he tried to skip out on paying the bill. Remember, Gene James made over $300,000 a year at the time (2008). He was also Liened by the IRS a few years later for 8,521.63 for not paying income taxes in 2008.

When you make $300,000 plus a year and attempt to skip on two bills of $6,000 and $8,500 – this is a willful and deliberate act. 8 Federal Tax Liens, 3 State Tax Liens, 4 Civil Judgements, a Wage Garnishment and a Foreclosure. Is this the new definition of a Conservative Republican?

The Orange County Republican Party and State Senator Pat Bates should be ashamed of themselves over this endorsement of Gene James. To Be Continued as we detail the Tax Liens and we tell the story from one of his Ex-Girlfriends who knows a lot.

San Clemente is a mess. Only the Toll Road matters, everything else is secondary. This is why people seemingly are turning a blind eye to Jackson Hinkle and his wacked out positions on issues. This seems to be why Gene James’ pattern of abusive behavior is given a free pass.

Here is Jackson Hinkle being arrested at an #OCCUPYICE Protest in Washington D.C. – that’s right, he was part of a sit in in front of Nancy Pelosi’s office in Washington D.C.

Jackson Hinkle is getting a lot of money from the far left. Some of the corrupt bully Bill Brough’s donors are giving Hinkle Money as well – just to show the bizarre web. Young Mr. Hinkle has had professional help (my opinion) in scrubbing his on line presence so he looks more moderate.

Here you go – give homeless people fresh needles (aka Harm Reduction), legalize prostitution and heroin. These are Jackson Hinkle’s own words. He also promotes some socialist dog whistle programs as well.

This is the exact opposite of my criticism of Gene James with regard to the homeless problem It appears that Jackson Hinkle wants to coddle homeless people – but nowhere do I see anything about accountability, building relationships or theraputic solutions. Just housing, legalizing crime and making it easier to feed their addictions. If people would have treated me like this when I was drinking, I’d be dead now as I’d have had no incentive to get clean. Anyone with life experience realizes that societal problems can never be fixed with extreme ideological solutions.

Then we have Mr. Hinkle expressing his disgust for the police patrolling areas impacted by vagrancy – but he goes off the ideological cliff with the following, “A System that is designed to oppress and kill people“. His solution to preventing crime is legalizing crime. I suppose this sort of idealism is common when you are 20 years old with no life experience.

The OC Firefighters endorsed Jackson Hinkle – in effect throwing the OC Sheriff’s (San Clemente’s Police) under the bus.

I was 18 when the Berlin Wall came down and understood it came down because of a hard line by President Reagan that precipitated an economic collapse in the USSR. Their fake economy could not sustain true accountability from the West. Young Mr. Hinkle believes in communism in so many words and people in San Clemente appear to be equally as blind to Hinkle’s extremism as those supporting Gene James are to his foibles.

Hinkle has attempted to reinvent himself – telling outright lies when compared to his past posts.

Sorry Kid, your own words prove the above to be an outright lie.

Jackson Hinkle is an extreme leftwing idealogue who in my opinion sees himself as some sort of Che Guevarra or Mao Tse Tung. In looking at Gene James and Jackson Hinkle I think the City of San Clemente needs serious help. Perhaps an evangelist needs to meet with the incredible homeless pastor I talked to in order to lead a revival in that town.

All this and the OC Firefighters threw the police under the bus with their endorsement of this guy.

San Clemente has gone insane. Please note, there are other candidates besides the cop-hating left-wing anarchist Jackson Hinkle and the flawed abusive Gene James. It is time to take a look at them.

Jackson Hinkle obviously thinks he is the second coming of Josef Stalin or David Hogg. He bragged on his social media (since scrubbed) about taking a knee at graduation.

Internet archives are a beautiful thing. Little Jacky is trying to reinvent himself as a moderate. When you are only 20 years old (just turned, by the way) your rants at age 16,17,18 are very much relevant.

Jackson Hinkle makes a misleading at best and outright lie at worst post – he implies that he never kneeled at his graduation. However, his own words and a partial photo we got tell a different story:

Note the gap between students, that is where young Mr. Hinkle is taking a knee. As a military veteran, I find this offensive.

Once again, I will state clearly that I could care less about the Toll Road. What I care about is a mush-brained 20 year old communist or a fossilized bully being in elective office. The lefties that have glommed on to Jackson have no clue what they are getting themselves in to – kids this young have a tendency to go on ego-fueled rampages once they get too much attention and feel important. They see him as a third vote to install social justice in San Clemente, yet don’t realize that Hinkle will roll on them too when it suits him.

Jackson’s handlers have taken great pains to cover up his extreme left wing social media as well. The democrat socialists tried to make the teenager look older in their communist propaganda channelling endorsement of him.

The San Clemente OC Firefighters appear to have betrayed the OC Sheriff’s Department (who contracts service in San Clemente) by supporting a communist who hates cops. There were and still are other options than the pinko kid. The Firefightres must think the kid will give away the store to them.

I’d like to take the time to remind people that there are other candidates than Gene James and Jackson Hinkle running for San Clemente City Council.
