I never had a business problem with Tim Clark until he walked out on some bills totaling 20-30,000 dollars owed to former business partners. Not long after, I started having conversations with political insiders all of whom recounted stories of Tim Clark making promises that he never followed through on or simply engaging in outright lies. All of this, of course occurred under the thin Veneer of Christianity.
Then I heard other firsthand accounts and the outrage over Tim Clark getting a paying job from the Trump Campaign. I’ve spoken to more than one volunteer in the California Donald Trump effort that has had nothing good to say about Clark’s tenure as a paid operative for Trump.
When Clark was assembling the delegation for Donald Trump in California, he was purging everyone he did not like and purged so many people that he ended up with avowed Nazi on the list. Typical of Clark’s history, he did not do his homework and was in a last-minute frenzy.
He appointed a Nazi to the California Donald Trump Delegate Slate along with a vigilante, reality show TV Stars, a crazy pastor, a former GOP leader who made legitimate rape comments and a couple of GOP officials that got cold feet and quit. But, hey! Clark was able to retaliate against everyone he did not like!
You’d think he’d have never gotten a job offer in Washington DC, but he had a few influential friends who are either blind to his incompetence and dishonesty or they had another agenda. You’d think the delegation caper would have cost him his job…
A short time later in Aaugust of 2016, Tim Clark worked with Paul Manafort to purge all the Ben Carson alumni off of the Trump team. Yes, THAT Paul Manafort. Clark removed competition so he could get a larger paycheck. This is another in the pattern of activity I have seen from Clark over the years, he usually takes action to remove everyone else from a campaign so he gets all the money and control.
Clark ripped Donald Trump off for $119k in the campaign. We also followed up with an expose’ of the historic drubbing Tim Clark presided over in California. To this day, Clark refuses to own up to his part in it, and similar to the litany of people he has double-crossed and lied to over the years, the pattern is consistent. Were it not for a few outstanding local leaders in California, nothing would have been accomplished. I was personally on the ground in Nevada late in the election cycle and no one knew who Tim Clark was and there were few if any volunteers from Nearby California present in Washoe County (Reno area, a top 15 swing county in America).
This brings me to current events…
Tim Clark, the agency’s White House liaison who also served as HHS’ interim communications chief this year, in 2016 sent tweets sharing allegations that Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid people to incite violence at Trump’s rallies, based on a hidden-camera video produced by Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe. Democrats disputed the charge and distanced themselves from the individuals in the edited video.
“Wikileaks & O’Keefe video shows Hillary blatantly disregards election laws,” Clark tweeted in October 2016, while he was California director for the Trump campaign. “Election must be free & fair.”
Clark also repeatedly used a #SpiritCooking hashtag to promote his pro-Trump tweets, referencing allegations about Clinton campaign chief John Podesta engaging in Satanic practices, based on an email forwarded to Podesta’s brother Tony and obtained by WikiLeaks. The term “spirit cooking” was used by artist Marina Abramović, who was hosting a dinner and invited the Podestas, and in November 2016 said the term was “taken completely out of my context … it was just a normal dinner.”
Clark’s Twitter account is now private. His assistant referred questions to the HHS press office.
Tim Clark, the agency’s White House liaison, is resigning and will depart the agency in the coming weeks, according to an internal email sent to staff and shared with POLITICO. He has been replaced by Trent Morse, who joined HHS from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
This whole thing is the latest in the pattern of self-destruction from Mr. Clark.
It is an awkward position. Normally, I’d look at an article like this and say, it looks like Clark got what he deserved and call it good. The problem is that he never sold his house in Auburn. He is coming back to California to ply his trade again and anyone that hires him or attempts to work with him should beware. His self-destructive history continues to this day.
I had heard late last year that Clark was loving life in Washington D.C. and was thinking about putting roots down in Virginia. He was telling people he was done with being a political consultant. It seemed like the page had been turned. Then along came Doug Ose’s nascent Governor Campaign and there was Tim Clark (well, it was his daughter on all the paperwork and press releases so Tim did not violate the Hatch Act), and I knew once again Tim Clark had spun another lie to those he was talking to about his life in Washington D.C.
Then there is this money sentence in the Politico article:
“Mr. Clark has long planned this position change and delayed that move for several months to assure a smooth transition for the new secretary,” said Peter Urbanowicz
This may be the only truthful thing Clark has said in the last year. It looks like Doug Ose was supposed to have been his meal ticket. Then some of Clark’s own crew from 2016 gave Travis Allen the keys to all of the California Trump Team’s lists and digital assets. Before Ose got two feet out of the Batter’s Box, Travis Allen had made his entire 5th place Governor’s campaign about Trump.
If the phone rings and Tim Clark is on the other end of the line, consider yourself warned.
