"Oil" Muratsuchi: Not Pro-Green, but Sold Out to the Oil Companies

Al Muratsuchi claims to be pro-environment.

He even touts his latest endorsement from the Sierra Club, with the claim that he is 100% Pro-Green.

And yet ...

He floated on $500,000 worth of Big Oil money in 2014.

Hadley exposed Muratsuchi's dirty money in a debate  at the Hermosa Beach Kiwanis Club:

The Hadley campaign reported that Muratsuchi is getting major funding from the oil industry, $500,000 strong. Startled surprise erupted briefly in the room. Icky-sticky. "The oil companies are serving as a lifeline for Muratsuchi's campaign," Hadley declared.

He doesn't want fracking in the state of California.

But he doesn't give a frack about taking Big Oil money.

Of course, the public at large is not going to see Big Oil, or ExxonMobil listed on his campaign finance records.

He is getting a lot of money from different Democratic county parties, though.

He got $35,000 from the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, for example.

He got another $80,000 from a Democratic County Party in the Bay Area. The Democrats in Alameda and San Francisco Counties do not need to invest in their own races.

They are doling out the cash to other districts, and Assembly District 66 is the #1 Target--Again.

Check out this flyer which Muratsuchi mailed to Democratic households:



Everything that he lists in his "plan for the refinery" has already been done by a Republican Councilman on the Torrance City Council--Milton Herring--or a Republican Assemblyman:



If we want to see a more accurate flyer about Al Muratuschi and his environmental record, see below:



And if we really want to know where his allegiances lie, check out this picture:



He sold out to the homosexual lobby.

He sold out to Big Labor.

Al would sell his own mother to win a seat in the state assembly.

The South Bay can do better--and is already doing better.

David Hadley is pro-green, pro-growth, and pro-South Bay!

Michael Moore: The Bearer of Good News

Michael Moore is bringing us good news.

Inadvertently.

He wrote a few months back how Donald Trump is going to be the next President of the United States.

This hard-core moronic leftist, a crockumentarian who has lied about the Right, conservatives, President Bush, and just about anything that smacks of the truth--finally told the truth about one key issue.



Donald Trump is a great candidate, and he will Make America Great Again!

And so, he gave the bad news to his regressive followers who still think that he is relevant.

The truth is, people will only care what he thinks or has to say about anything when he gives back that Academy Award for "Bowling for Columbine." THe

Friends:

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I gave it to you straight last summer when I told you that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president. And now I have even more awful, depressing news for you: Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years: “PRESIDENT TRUMP.”

Now why does this peddler of lies and deceit believe that Donald Trump is going to be the next President of the United States?

Here are the 5 reasons Trump is going to win:

1. Midwest Math, or Welcome to Our Rust Belt Brexit.  I believe Trump is going to focus much of his attention on the four blue states in the rustbelt of the upper Great Lakes – Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. 

Moore was right that Trump would spend more time in these Rust Belt states.

These regions are genuinely conservative regions where Republican governors have inveted some incredible effort, with stellar results.

Scott Walker and Rick Snyder have been reworking their states to serve everyone. They broke the power of Big Labor, which was keeping Democrats entrenched in power.

The last Republican Presidential candidate to win these states? Ronald Reagan,who was pro-labor all the way, and walked in lockstep to the needs of private labor unions.

This distinction cannot be ignored. Public sector unions are bankrupting cities, school districts, and states. The private unions needs a thriving market place in order to thrive.

Now, let's catch Michael Moore up to speed.



Donald Trump is now winning Ohio.

He is down in Pennsylvania, and clawing back into the front will be an uphill climb.

Trump has latched onto the bad trade deals which globalists and distance marketeers have ignored. Free trade must be free for everyone. I think that more people will start paying attention to large-scale, multinational deals from now on.

I must admit that free trade is not always free if the terms of the agreement are not clear, consistent, and transparent. No doubt that has become a huge liability for the United States.

2. From Green Bay to Pittsburgh, this, my friends, is the middle of England – broken, depressed, struggling, the smokestacks strewn across the countryside with the carcass of what we use to call the Middle Class. Angry, embittered working (and nonworking) people who were lied to by the trickle-down of Reagan and abandoned by Democrats who still try to talk a good line but are really just looking forward to rub one out with a lobbyist from Goldman Sachs who’ll write them nice big check before leaving the room. 

Moore has picked up on the blue collar conservative Democratic vein which motivates middle America. They are tired of arrogant, big government elitists pushing policies which push them out of work, out of power, and out of relevance.

These social justice maneuvers, from the rioting in the streets to the redefinition of marriage and gender, have infuriated the No-Longer-Silent Majority.

This is the result of Big Government, Big Green, and Big Business globalists who want to skew the rules and game the system for themselves at the expense of everyone else.

Everyone else revolts and rejects their insidious discrimination and dominance.

3. The Last Stand of the Angry White Man. Our male-dominated, 240-year run of the USA is coming to an end. A woman is about to take over! How did this happen?! On our watch! There were warning signs, but we ignored them.

Moore is facetious--and fatuous, but there is some truth to this brazen assertion.

Feminism has turned into angry, embittered anti-masculinism. Men are automatically bad. Men must submit to women's every needs and demands, or they lose half the property and pay alimony until the children are all grown up--if they grow up at all.

Men are required to take the abuse, and women get away with a lot in our courts and in the media.

Manhood is under attack, and boyhood is denied as an emotional disorder which needs to be cured, rather than a stage of life to be embraced then shaped into strong and energetic maturity.

Not only that, but the attack on men is also an attack on women and children, too, because it's an attack on the family.

The femi-nazi rhetoric coming out of Michael Moore's words is very disheartening.

Male-dominated? There is nothing wrong with submission and honor in a marriage. Men are called to lead, to be the head of the household. Headship is not dictatorship. Submission is not slavery, but graceful deference which rewards the wife, the lady of the home with greater honor and glory.

4. The Hillary Problem. Can we speak honestly, just among ourselves? And before we do, let me state, I actually like Hillary – a lot – and I think she has been given a bad rap she doesn’t deserve. But her vote for the Iraq War made me promise her that I would never vote for her again. To date, I haven’t broken that promise. For the sake of preventing a proto-fascist from becoming our commander-in-chief, I’m breaking that promise. I sadly believe Clinton will find a way to get us in some kind of military action. She’s a hawk, to the right of Obama. But Trump’s psycho finger will be on The Button, and that is that. Done and done.

You have to applaud Michael Moore for having the courage to tell the truth about their front-runner.

Hillary sucks.

But not for the reasons most people in this country despise her.

He focuses on her vote for the war in Iraq.

How about focusing on her corruption in connection with the Clinton Foundation?

How about her pathological penchant for lying?

Her misuse of classified information?

Her frequent need to cover up her crimes with more lies?



Her ill health, which she still tries to deny?

How about the four dead diplomats in Benghazi?

How about her flip-flopping on every major issue, and even her ideological bent?

No, Moore's only upset that she voted to kill Saddam Hussein.

5. The Depressed Sanders Vote. Stop fretting about Bernie’s supporters not voting for Clinton – we’re voting for Clinton! The polls already show that more Sanders voters will vote for Hillary this year than the number of Hillary primary voters in ’08 who then voted for Obama. This is not the problem. The fire alarm that should be going off is that while the average Bernie backer will drag him/herself to the polls that day to somewhat reluctantly vote for Hillary, it will be what’s called a “depressed vote” – meaning the voter doesn’t bring five people to vote with her. 

Now Moore is dallying with fantasy. Those Bernie voters are no longer Democratic voters, and guess what? Bernie Sanders was never a real Democrat. He had served in Congress and in the United States Senate as an independent (of ideas and reality) socialist.

He signed on as a Democrat only because he wouldn't have had the 50-state infrastructure to run for President as an Independent.



Progressive voters have been charmed by the Sanders snake oil so effectively, they are breaking away from the Democratic Party and joining the Greens, or voting for Gary Johnson, or not voting at all. They have been branded for Revolution, and they are not going back on their deepest convictions to support a Wall Street bought-and-sold Establishment hag in tacky pantsuits.

6.  The Jesse Ventura Effect. Finally, do not discount the electorate’s ability to be mischievous or underestimate how any millions fancy themselves as closet anarchists once they draw the curtain and are all alone in the voting booth. It’s one of the few places left in society where there are no security cameras, no listening devices, no spouses, no kids, no boss, no cops, there’s not even a friggin’ time limit. 

Moore finds a colorful expression for the anti-establishment temperament in the current electorate.

The voters want the ultimate in outsider status. They will not vote for the status quo, but not just for the arbitrary reason for doing so. They status quo have given them bad trade deals, no national security, endless wars, wasteful and costly bailouts, and corridors of power geared toward the greed of the few political connected at the expense of the rest.

Voters are justifiably frustrated. Trump is a wild card for many. Hillary is a race card, gender card, corruption, and fraud card that everyone has seen, and has tossed away.

Final Reflection

Moore's mourning for Hillary Clinton and her so demise before the American electorate is uite gratifying.

Crocodile tears? Schadenfreude? All of the above, I dare say.

For a faux-populist like crockumentarian Mike to call Trump a faux-populist is just the height of stupidity, arrogance, and lacking self-awareness.



By the way, for a guy who has claimed to be the voice and face of working America, he lives the high life in gated mansions, taking money from the the working classes, who barely get by, and coasts off their misguided class warfare conflict.

The rise of Truth is not just the demise of the mainstream left-wing media, but the arrogant, big money progressive plutocrats who have turned Americans against each other just to make easy money.

Before Breitbart, Christian News was "The New Media"

The New Media of Breitbart, Truth Revolt, Levin TV, Daily Caller, have made mince meat of Madam Hillary Clinton's chances at re-election.

They do not deserve the final praise for accomplishing this upending of the liberal Big Three media monopoly.

Before conservatives were scaling the walls of the liberal press, Christian programming like the Christian Broadcasting Network and Hal Lindsey's Report talked about the disturbing undercurrents of globalist corporate interests, plus the searing yet subtle attacks on religious liberty.

Before Breitbart was denouncing the Big Gay Hate Machine attacking individual liberties, Pastors Josh McDowell and Rod Parsley was preaching against the destructive homosexual agenda--and warning of its pernicious silencing effects.



The problem? No one was listening at the time.

Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network was educating the Christian public about the destructive, Satan spirit of lawlessness pervasive in the world. Preachers like him were also denouncing the intolerant political correctness of the left.

What has changed?

News which does not try to preach has found a more ready audience?

I submit that American citizens have finally woken up to the demonic nature of the Obama Administration. What the pastors and church leaders were warning about, has finally fallen on the public.

It's too bad that did not submit their understanding and take an active charge in fighting these scourges while they had begun to flay out at our rights, our foundations, the fundamentals of our Judeo-Christian culture.

Before the conservative "New Media" take all the credit for exposing the lies, hypocrisy, and distorted left-wing agenda of the New York-Los Angeles Media Phalanx, they should tip their has to the men and women of God who reported on the anti-Christian undercurrents of our secularized culture, and who exhorted their audience to do anything they could to alert and awaken their fellow man.

Now, why did Christian networks possess the wisdom and courage to report the stories which most networks avoiding, and to confront the issues which turned off major media networks?

Christians have received the gift of righteousness, and keep receiving it (Romans 5:17)

They have submitted themselves to the greatest King, the one political force who answers all charges and protects his subjects, men and women who He has made fellow-citizens and heirs with His Son.

The righteous are as bold as a lion (Proverbs 28:1). Because of this righteousness, they both know and believe that no weapon formed against them will ever prosper (Isaiah 54:14-17).

Because we the Body of Christ have yielded to the Highest (and Most Gracious) authority, we have no fear of man. We have the mindset to challenge the world's views and values. There is one Narrative which stands above all others: "In the Beginning, God Created", and then "In the Beginning Was the Word ..."



The apostles told the local authorities took joy in knowing that they suffered for Jesus's sake, and refused to stop preaching the Gospe.

The preacher Martin Luther reminded man that Grace comes from God through Jesus Christ.

The pastors of Great Britain taught the Englishman that Christ not man is King.

And the doctors of the church, throughout the Thirteen Colonies, affirmed for the American people of their godly heritage and the divine origin of their rights.

Fast forward to modern times.

In the Stanley Milgran social science experiments, Christians, men and women of faith, could look at their trainer and tell them "I will not continue to shock this subject."

Preachers, pastors, teachers of the Word, every member of the Body of Christ are not afraid of man or his government.

We are free to challenge what we have learned, and to grow in grace. Jesus Himself told those who doubted him: "Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake." (John 14:11)

Before there was "The New Media", there was Christ Jesus, His disciples, the Body of Christ, and the great media who harnessed modern means to promote news with a Christian vision!

MEDIA ADVISORY FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE--California MassResistance Stands in Solidarity with Mexican People for Natural Marriage

MEDIA ADVISORY FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  September 23rd, 2016                                       

Contact: Arthur Schaper
Director, California MassResistance
Torrance, CA
 (310) 793-8647

On Saturday, September 24th at 12:00 noon, pro-family group California MassResistance will demonstrate in front of the Mexican Consulate of Los Angeles to show solidarity with the Mexican People, who are protesting against same-sex marriage in their own country at the same time.

Los Angeles, California -- In spite of the increasing number of countries trying to push homosexual marriage on countries who are unwilling to accept it, Latin Americans are rising up and fighting for life, family, and Biblical morality.



La Frente Nacional por la Familia engaged in nationwide protests in Mexico to stop the President Enrique Pena Nieto from forcing same-sex marriage on the entire country.

California MassResistance will protest in front of the Mexican consulate on the same day when La Frente Nacional gathers in front of the Mexican Congress: Saturday.September 24 at 12noon.

Arthur Schaper of California MassResistance praised the Mexican people: “I am glad to see hundreds of thousands of citizens standing up to their abusive government and standing up for the family and natural marriage.

“Many of us in the pro-family movement have feared that other nations would simply cave to the aggressive LGBT agenda and not even try to stop it. The Mexican People, and La Frente Nacional in particular, give us hope that more people will stand up for natural marriage and Biblical morality in the United States, too!”



MassResistance is a bold, confrontational pro-family group: activism that makes a difference, and encourages all others who know and support the Mexican People in their struggle to support natural marriage and the family.

California MassResistance’s demonstration will take place:

Saturday, September 24th, 2016 at 12 noon
Mexican Consulate of Los Angeles
2401 W 6th St, Los Angeles, CA 90057
(On the corner of Park View St. and 6th St., right across the street from the Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty Park)

Trump's Colorful Campaign: A Solid, Granite Pathway to 270

Donald Trump-mentum is steam-rolling Hillary Clinton across the country.


The third-party candidates are dragging down her already bedraggled chances. Her coughing fits, her unsure (or rather non-existent) relationship with facts, truth, and anything else pertaining to reality have harmed her already marred image.


Clinton could be heading to the Big House before she sets foot in the White House.




I must admit, I didn’t think the brash populism of the NYC real estate mogul would be enough. He kicked political correctness in the teeth, and he savaged assured the widespread silent majority (now shouting for leadership) that he would stop illegal immigration, bad trade deals, and unsure national security.


He has brushed up his public act. Still unimpeded, but more on message. He talks about conservative Supreme Court Justice (in fact he rolled out an impressive list of SCOTUS nominees). He wants to repeal the free-speech muzzling Johnson Amendment). He talks to people who don’t look like him, and goes to states which Republicans have written off as possibilities for the last thirty years.

And he’s not Hillary.


Of course he’s gaining ground!


I didn't know what to expect after the Republican National Convention. Yes, the polling during the RNC Media bump placed Pennsylvania ever so slightly in the Trump column, and FiveThirtyEight.com advertised the Republican nominee with a 55% chance of winning the Presidency.


Then came Hillary Clinton’s week in the sunlight—protected from the heat of imposing scrutiny. The fawning, marginalized media went to work suppressing Bernie dissenters, propping up the sick old lady (who was pretending to be healthy), and playing up the implausible narrative that all is well with the Democratic Party—despite all the booing and walking out. Clinton was grabbing all the attention, and the Democratic Party candidate (despite lying, cheating, and stealing) was the nominee.

For three weeks, she was going to be the next President.


One month later ...


She is losing Ohio.


Colorado is not the sure thing that the Democratic Party thought it would be.


Florida, Iowa and even Georgia (not that the Peach State would ever go blue. Give it a rest, liberal press!) are jelling into distinct hues of red for Election Day. Republicans have been achieving notable successes at the state and local level, all of which is strengthening their brand, broadening their base, boosting their influence.


Iowa has more Republican than Democratic voters, and the registration gap is narrowing faster than ever. US Senator Chuck Grassley took the lead on fighting illegal immigration, including sanctuary city policies. Grassley recently praised the campaign chairmen in each of the state’s 99 counties! He is now double-digits ahead of her Democratic challenger. Iowa is a Republican state by and large.

Grassley has the grassroots, and they are going to grow into an epic victory, and pull the Hawkeye State into Trump's column, too. This trend goes double for Rob Portman of Ohio, which will help Trump big time.


The one month swing toward the Donald is not lost on Five Thirty Eight, either.





The latest Five Thirty Eight map depicts more swing states as pink instead of baby blue. Just this week, Nevada has caught a light pink hue, too! This growing up-ticket swing will surely help Joe Heck his steady yet still close bid to replace Harry Reid in the United States Senate.

With North Carolina and Florida gently snuggled into the Trump column, what does Donald have? 265 Electoral votes.


If the polling in Maine remains consistent, then Trump could pick up one more electoral vote, since Maine apportions their electoral votes based on proportional representation (one for each House district, and two votes to the candidate who wins the statewide popular vote).


My current analysis on the Electoral College outcomes for Election 2016:


Trump will carry away all five electoral votes in Nebraska (Congressional apportionment a la Maine notwithstanding)



Trump wins that extra electoral vote. He might scoop three of the four votes in the Pine Tree State. After all, Ted Cruz won the primary caucuses, indicating a decisively conservative undercurrent.

Now Trump needs four more electoral votes to win.


The latest polling shows up him ahead by four points in Colorado.


He wins the Colorful state, he gets an off-color win easy. If Trump wins New Hampshire, which was tilting his way before, then he lands right on 270. The Granite State might present his best path to victory, but so could Colorado. George W. Bush won New Hampshire in 2000, but he won Colorado in 2000 and 2004.


Also, Trump is scoring higher in Colorado, since Hillary Clinton let her guard down long ago in that state. Besides, the state delegates are more energized and organized, there. Trump should invest more time, resources, and face-to-face campaign interaction in Colorado.




But now he has the time to take on bigger challenges in other "solid blue" or "sold out Democratic" states like Virginia, Michigan (where he was tied) or even Wisconsin (which also has a GOP trifecta).

This is Trump's campaign to lose, and Hillary Clinton is all but handing it to him at this point.

Election 2016: Let's Party

I am having a lot of fun this general election season!

It didn't start out that way, though!

I was so sad after Ted Cruz dropped out in May.

Keep in mind that he was not my first choice for President. I wanted Scott Walker, the Wisconsin Governor who beat down Big Labor and won.

The fight that beat down the public sector unions did not translate to the national front.

Too bad.

Walker's incredible record of reforms and Republican resurgence in an otherwise blue state were really captivating. After all, he won statewide election three times in four years.

Surely he could have flipped other blue states.

Trump brought a brazen, brass-knuckles ruckus to the debate and the campaign. Seventeen candidates divided the vote so keenly, and Trump's strong showing in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada sewed up his support very nicely.

Ted Cruz kept up a very strong fight. He did win Iowa, after all.



But when the junior US Senator could not win an all-out majority in his home state, everyone knew that this primary fight would be longer, more drawn-out than expected.

Ultimately, the New England and Mid-Atlantic states quashed Cruz' chances.

His brand of Southern-style, full-court conservatism without the down-to-earth populism would get Cruz nowhere.

It's too bad, but the most ardent of pro-life, pro-family, and pro-liberty activists have to work on gaining mainstream appeal without relying on ideological fervor.

Donald Trump has captured the widespread imagination of people normally uninterested in politics.

A candidate who talks about helping people to win again, who wants to Make America Great again, is going to resonate with the wide swath of voters who don't want to debate policy.

They just want to start winning again, and they want to prosper again.

I like Donald Trump.

He is resonating with me.

He is sounding more presidential.

He is taking on positions and connecting with key people who make him more trustworthy to the general electorate.

I never shied away from Trump because of his diverse, controversial remarks.

I never believed that he was a racist.



He certainly touched on issues that were not of direct concern to me. But these issues need to be faced:

1. Illegal immigration (the one issue of heated concern to me, but not in a visceral way, as there are many conservatives and immigration advocates who have lost loved ones to illegal aliens, or who have lost their jobs in competition with illegals)

2. International trade. I think that free markets do make free people. Other countries produce goods without honoring the freedom and natural integrity of individuals.

3. National Security. We need our President, our national government to care about We the People. We need our borders secure, and we need criminals to be afraid to commit crimes. We need domestic terrorists to feel terror from us!

Trump excites people.

He is brusk and bullish. We needed something like this in our country.

Today, I trust the man to do the job needed for this country.

Also ...

Look at Hillary Clinton. The woman is tanking right before our very eyes! She can't even keep up with her own crappy lies. She can't keep up with the other people around her. She no longer can depend on the corrupt and crappy marginalized media. Once considered to be an inevitable front-runner, she is now running into one snafu after the next, many of her own making.



Trump is gaining on her in swing states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin ...

Yes, those three states are now swing states

The usual suspects, like Florida, Ohio, and Nevada, are already Trump territory.

I have never been so excited about a Presidential candidate and this is coming from someone who had lined up behind four other contenders.

This year is all about party time. This is a time for Republicans to celebrate!

I never thought I would say this, but I am glad that Trump is the GOP nominee!

Media Fail: Facebook Post Reveals Another Republican Voting for Hillary--Who Cares?

Facebook, Twitter, and the blogosphere erupted over the latest anti-Trump Republican news.

George Herbert Walker Bush, the former Congressman, CIA Director, Vice President, and then President for one term (the last President to serve only four years in the White House before losing), will be voting for uber-corrupt, severely progressive (because she really isn’t) Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Where did this news come from?

This revelation dropped on the global second-by-second news services throughout Politico (not exactly the most trustworthy of sources). Politico had the hollow audacity to run a baseless smear-piece against Dr. Ben Carson, that he had supposedly lied about a West Point scholarship.
One has to wonder how Politico manages to stay in business, if they can’t get their facts straight, and give off their clearly pro-leftwing cheerleading slant.



The article suggested that Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend (daughter of Robert Kennedy), the former Maryland lieutenant governor, had a fun meeting with the elderly former chief executive.

Then she posted on Facebook: “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!!”

 I tried to find this post. Nowhere to be found.

The picture is real enough. Of course, a real picture does not verify the source or the veracity of the caption.

Bush’s spokesman has remained mum about this alleged treacherous endorsement:

"The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in some 50 days. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim."

For now, let’s dispense with the unconscionable presentiment that a prominent Republican, the former President of the United States, is back-stabbing his party and the country.

We have a scenario where an elder statesman confided in another former elected official. He was going to vote for this or that presidential candidate. Instead of respecting his privacy, she tattled online and blabbed to everyone this secret.

Shame on Hartington! What kind of a world do we live in, where politicians of extended pedigree cannot keep a confidence, even among friends who have returned to private life?

Is there no capacity left among public officials to keep private thoughts private?

Facebook over-exposure strikes again.

Key lesson: don’t tell secrets to a member of the Kennedy clan.

Honestly, Maryland could not have done worse than elected a quasi-dynasty of entitled Democrats who think they should sit in Governor’s Mansion or Washington D.C. backrooms just because.

Now, let’s focus on Bush Senior.

From the first months of his presidency, Bush’s most vocal critics lambasted him as a New World Order Globalist. He also threw his Republican Party under the bus when he had pledged at the 1988 convention: “Read My Lips: No New Taxes.” That pledge took a nose dive, and the American People ended up paying through the nose.

It was 1992, and even though I could not vote, I was so angry, so ashamed of George H.W. Bush’s caving on principle, plus his adamantly refusal to fight with a wayward and troublesome Democratic Congress. I was rooting for Ross Perot, only because he took the budget issues seriously, and was not a liar like Bush or Bubba.

Big Government, neoconservative, globalist Republicanism took a full frontal fall with George W. Bush in 2008. Republicans who claimed fiscal prudence needed to govern that way. A conservative agenda which focused on the needs of all, not just the greed of the few, would rule the day.

Hence, Trump.

Shame on Establishment GOP


I am not at all surprised that Elitist, corporate Republicans like Meg Whitman, Bob Gates, as well as George H.W. are voting for Hillary Clinton. Main Street Republican voters so despise the Washington Establishment, that their disdain for the GOP nominee makes Trump all the more appealing.

Shame on Bush!

Last of all, let’s dissect the dying media’s fatal obsession with this unverified scoop.

What kind of journalism goes all out reporting some shocking event (if an online photo with two old people counts as shocking), with evidence as scant as a hard-to-find Facebook post? The whole “Facebook told me Bush is voting Hillary” headline saga exposes how biased, corrupt, and increasingly irrelevant the major media junkets have devolved.

Bush 41, the one-termer who succeeded Ronald Reagan in 1988 with a 40+ state election sweep, is not keen on Donald Trump? We all knew that already. The Bush family—George Sr. George Jr., Jeb from Florida who floundered until he gave up in South Carolina—didn’t attend the RNC Convention in Cleveland.

Guess what? No one cared. No one really noticed.

So, does anyone really care that this long-retired former President is voting for Hillary Clinton?

The media would have us believe that this latest defection belongs to a never-ending list of Republicans do not like the standard-bearer, and that the lack of established rank-and-file support means Trump is headed for the dumps. The latest polling shows that Trump is riding the angry, discontent populist wave of the Loud Majority, tired of easy Washington two-step compromises hurting everyone else.

How sad for the media! This is the best they can do to try and tear down Trump!

Doctor Ruiz Feeling the GOP Fever in Riverside

Doctor Raul Ruiz ran for Congress in the GOP Friendly Congressional district 36, located predominantly in Riverside County.

The Doctor is IN ... Trouble?


He ended up defeating Mary Bono Mack in a sudden upset.

Very close, and yet very sad.

In 2014, an assemblyman in the Riverside area, Brian Nestande, was unable to unseat him, and pollsters feared that the district was becoming less competitive.


What is the current voter registration?


Republicans currently have a one point Republican advantage in the district.

They should be able to flip this Congressional seat back into GOP hands

They also have a great candidate running--State Senator Jeff Stone.

He has made bold pronouncements on the State Senate Floor to stop attacks on individual liberty and economic prosperity.

Strangely, District 36th has remained off the radar.

But now Trump is surging in all the national polls.

And in California.

Dr. Ruiz is feeling the heat!

Check out his latest eblast:


Dr. Raul Ruiz for Congress

-- The election is only 48 days away
-- National Republicans are spending heavily in California
-- And polls everywhere show the GOP surging up and down the ticket

Arthur Christopher, in a swing district like ours, this last-minute Republican surge could be the difference between winning and losing.

Yes, it could, and what a wonderful outcome that would be!

There is nothing extreme about Dr. Jeff Stone. He is a principled pharmacist and small business owner who won his state senate seat in 2014 fair and suare.

He better represents the needs and concerns of the Eastern Riverside county area than any other.

So if we don’t put all we’ve got into helping Dr. Ruiz, our extreme opponent could succeed in turning this seat red.

Please, let's bring the ruby red hue back to Southern California.

Republicans and conservatives should not be dismissed by the turnout in June. The Republican presidential primary was all but finished, while the Democratic fight for primary delegates was entering its final, frenzied lap.

Our numbers go public after September 30th, and we need to raise $15,000 by then to stay on track. Will you chip in right away to help us get there?

We know Dr. Ruiz isn’t a politician -- as an emergency medicine doctor, he’s dedicated his life to helping others. That’s why we need to keep his strong, independent voice in Congress.

Blah! This doctor supports Obamacare, That's a purely political stance, since it's neither a moral or fiscal position to hold.

But if we fail to put up a big fundraising number at the end of the month, it will be a HUGE setback this close to Election Day.

Love that word HUGE. Notice, however, that this eblast does not tie Stone to Donald Trump.

Why is that? Perhaps because Trump is turning into an asset while Hillary Clinton, corrupt and sick, is now dragging down the Democratic ticket--even in California!

We have to hit this fundraising goal, but we can’t do it without you, Arthur Christopher. Please chip in $5 or more today:

Thank you,

Team Ruiz

Final Reflection

This panic is setting in all over the country. Democratic donors are getting jittery about Hillary.

Include the good Doctor Raul Ruiz.

Even though the Democratic incumbent has coasted on decent numbers in the past, a sudden GOP surge at the end, with diminished Democratic turnout, could put one doctor into bed-rest for good and give a good doctor the chance to bring some health and wellness back to Washington!

Vote Jeff Stone for Congress!

Hillary Clinton's Enthusiasm Chasm

Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton defines Crook, Corrupt, and Crappy.

How’s that for the meaning of C? Classified? How about Crucified … in the public, that is.
Hillary Clinton is the green-eyed monster of modern politics. She has been running for President since 1992, or was it 1972. She was fired from prosecuting the Watergate Scandal, since her colleagues lambasted her as a corrosive liar.


Now she is a corroded fraud.

Twenty years of running for President, including a middling tenure as U.S. Senator of New York, plus her destructive tenure as Secretary of State, and one would think that the American people would be so over the First Woman thing.

It appears that the Democratic base is feeling the Burn, i.e. burned by their party, burned by marginalized Big Three media giants, and burned by a general culture of corruption and influence peddling.

And again about that “First Woman running for President” thing …

Have we forgotten about Shirley Chisholm?  What about Elizabeth Dole? Michelle Bachmann? Carly Fiorina? Notice that Republican women (including Maine US Senator Margaret Chase Smith) have run for President before.

No, they didn’t become the presumptive nominee of a major party, but let’s get over this tired, old left-wing narrative that the voting public is so misogynist that they would never elect a woman President.

Democratic grassroots voters, left-wing activists, and generally principled Big Government advocates (if they can be called principled), and hard-core socialists—men and women—lined up behind Bernie Sanders. The woman card didn’t work for them, and they refused to be bullied with the gender card.
Wow, we really have come a long way in this country. Identity politics is falling by the wayside. Of course, the abortive Madam Hillary Clinton made it easier for the ardent feminists to tell themselves: “Let’s wait for a better female Presidential candidate.”

After all, Clinton had to cheat to win the primary. It helps when your best friend is the former DNC Chairman. It also helps when party leaders working in Washington DC decided to threaten Bernie Sanders to get along with Madam Hillary, or lose his seat on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee.
Did I mention that Hillary Clinton is caked, tarred, and smothered in corruption?

Democrats are facing the most yawning of enthusiasm gaps in modern times. And I’m talking about the uber-liberal, communistic ones.

The working class, Reagan Democrats, and the diverse minority communities--the ones who immigrated legally to this country, but ended up registering as Democrats because the DNC showed up at the swearing-in ceremony—are moving for Trump in large numbers.

This is turning into one of the most exciting and enthusiastic elections in my life time.
I have met Democrats of all backgrounds here in Los Angeles County—and throughout the state of California. They are voting Republican now because of the message, connections, and hope offered by Donald Trump.



I was a big fan of five of the seventeen candidates running for President.

Yet even Donald Trump is two steps ahead, above, and beyond Mitt Romney, John McCain, Bob Dole, etc. And then we look at Hacking Hillary, she is now Losing Hillary. Democrats who will still pull the lever for Hillary are not excited about the prospect. That makes me really happy, too.

But there are other Democrats, the true believers in the role of state, in the push for radical equality, and fundamental fairness, even if meted out by the government.

I was working the precincts along the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, California, aka the People’s Republic of Santa Monica. Rich hippies, green activists, and a established progressive temperament define the political contours of this beach community.

I met Trump supporters … and I met anarchists. They will not vote for Hillary Clinton.

Anarchist in Santa Monica (on the right!)

One guy’s response was earnest and emphatic: “I cannot vote for her.” It would be a violation of his conscience, and that word has gotten too little currency these days. It means “with knowledge.”
With the knowledge that the Democratic Party cheated and lied to get Hillary the nomination, with the knowledge that she left four diplomats die in Benghazi, with the knowledge that she misused and distributed classified information on a private server, with the knowledge that she is a pathological liar about prior events and even her current health crisis (or rather crises, including her media as well as personal issues), the Santa Monica anarchist will not vote for Hillary.

Then I met another #NeverHillary activist in my own hometown.

Miguel Zuniga, born in Lawndale, now living in Lomita, was sporting his “Unidos con Bernie” T-shirt at a local restaurant (see picture). I just had to ask him about his ardent support for the Vermont socialist, even though the second e had long ago dropped out and even (*gasp!*) endorsed the Wicked Hillary.



Zuniga flat-out explained that he could not support a corrupt establishment hack (cough, spit) like Hillary Clinton.

Then I learned about the coalition called “The 1,900”, the Bernie supporters who want to the DNC Convention in Philadelphia. The Hillary camp and the DNC leadership violated their rights in foreseen (and largely unreported) ways. They took away their Bernie signs. They directed the cameras away from the large crowds. Of course, anyone watching the convention could hear the loud boos and the chants “No TPP!”

Zuniga recalled all of these conflicts for me. No wonder the Democratic grassroots are disgusted. No wonder there is a enthusiasm chasm about Hillary Clinton.



Then came the magic words from Zuniga, too: “I cannot vote for Hillary.”

I don’t blame him, and I applaud the integrity of these loyal liberals. On some issues, we actually agree, like our opposition to abusive corporate influence at the expense of We the People. I just trust Donald Trump to handle these problems, and build a wall, and ensure that our nation is secure.

This is incredible. Election 2016 didn’t develop as I expected, but my enthusiasm for the race has not diminished.

DCCC in Full Panic Mode: "Ohio is Going to Trump!"

Hillary Clinton is a terrible candidate.

She is a terrible campaigner.

She has no character.

She is the female, Democratic version of Mitt Romney.

Severely liberal, or progressive, or moderate, or whatever she wants to call herself to win another vote.

And those votes are falling away from her faster than she can count them slipping away.



Here's the latest eblast I received:

Nate Silver: 6O% chance Ohio goes for Trump

We’re on red alert.

Nate Silver just put must-win Ohio in Trump’s column.

This is dire. It could send Trump to the White House.

We’ve never needed our grassroots supporters more than in this moment. We’re desperate.

We need $2OO,OOO in the 5O-Days Out Fund before tomorrow to have a hope of beating Trump and his Republicans.

Thanks,


DCCC

Ouch!

Democratic chances for winning the Presidency went from bad to worse!

Much worse.
