The following piece is provided by Right on Daily as a public service. It is full of facts with my opinions interspersed within. If you are offended, please email [email protected] to register your complaint.

Here is the bottom line – Kevin Faulconer has to have the CAGOP endorsement. He needs the bulk mail permit, the multiple accounts the CAGOP has in order for his small donor list to be able to max out multiple times and he needs the special rates a political party get on advertisements. Since he is not Meg Whitman, he has to have control of the party apparatus (as in what’s left of it) in order to maximize his resources. It is also my belief that a lot of the same insider consultants we’ve been writing about for years have tens of thousands of dollars riding on this campaign as well.

Faulconer’s campaign manager Stephen Puetz who I have known to be a platform destroying liberal for the 20 years I’ve seen him around politics, claimed in a public statement that Faulconer thinks a CAGOP endorsement would be divisive. Obviously his comment was parsed consultant speak as Faulconer had a coordinated drill ready to go with the CAGOP Executive committee (7 of the 56 members present are paid by faulconer’s campaign) and had the 200 signatures to qualify for said divisive endorsement quickly.

#1 Kevin Faulconer is chemically dependent upon proxies. The proxies and credentials committee has been loaded with consultants – including several of Faulconer’s paid staff. There were 7 paid staff on the Executive Committee that helped jam down the by-law change and four on the rules committee as well.

IF you are not gathering proxies, you are going to lose. https://cagop.my.salesforce.com/sfc/p/#3i000000CsCG/a/3i000000DO3T/odmEehF8pS4Y9yuu_.sdco5t7z8tk_z58ebqGAgEb.M

Use that link and download the form. THE DEADLINE IS 8-7 YOU MAY NEED TO OVERNIGHT THE FORM TO YOUR PREFERRED CANDIDATE. THEY REQUIRE A WET INK SIGNATURE – MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO CROSS OUTS AND THE FORM IS COMPLETE. Scott Winn, Corey Uhden and others professionally paid to gather proxies are on the committee. Also, the chairs of two counties proven to have organized in violation of the CAGOP By-Laws are on that committee. They will be hunting for any excuse to deny proxies they believe are for Elder and Kiley.

Scott Winn, Corey Uhden, David Stafford Reade and others gathered over 300 proxies for Jessica Patterson in February. They will do the same for Faulconer. GET TO WORK.

#2 GO NOMINATE EVERY SINGLE GOP CANDIDATE. The corrupt leadership of the CAGOP are using the same voting system and software that yielded a ton of issues and complaints. The more candidates that qualify for the endorsement, the worse the system will perform and the more it will expose the methods and motivations of the staff. (Note, several of the CAGOP staff are connected to or alumni of Kevin Faulconer)

Please use this link to track the nomination. Please get your personalized email from the CAGOP with the PIN Number to nominate every candidate you know and/or are comfortable with: https://www.cagop.org/s/recall-endorsement/results

As of the typing of this blog, we have Faulconer, Kiley and Elder qualified. Doug Ose is at 158 nominations and needs 200. John Cox is at 83. The more candidates that qualify for the endorsement, the better.

#3 If I was advising the candidates – I’d tell them to spend 8 minutes on themselves and 2 minutes attacking the insider game and corruption on behalf of Kevin Faulconer. Faulconer is in deep trouble over the Ash Street Debacle and the insider machinations that the consultants and the CAGOP insiders have been pulling are absurd. The staffers and consultants that will be on the sham convention meeting on 8-7 need to be humiliated for what they have done. The CAGOP used to mean something, it is now a whore of political insiders and we deserve better.

#4 CAMPAIGNS – THAT MEANS YOU KILEY AND ELDER (and PERHAPS OSE AND COX) PAY PEOPLE’S $50 TO ATTEND THE CONVENTION. When Steve Frank lost in Feb, I know of dozens of his supporters that did not attend the convention because they did not want to pay their $75 just to vote for officers. Many of the over 150 votes I had identified that did not register to vote for Steve are Larry Elder supporters. My fear is that the lack of coordination between Elder and Kiley will leave dozens of votes on the table. This also dovetails with Proxies – the people that bailed on Steve Frank need to get their proxies in to the hands of Elder or Kiley asap and those campaigns need to pay many of their way onto the meeting.

The consultants that control the CAGOP know what they are doing and instituted registration fees as a deterrent to non staffers and non consultants from attending. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER IF YOU ARE A DELEGATE: https://www.cagop.org/s/convention?utm_medium=email&utm_source=mc&utm_campaign=20210730_213156_nominationportal_c_cagop&utm_content=cagop_p2

Scroll down for the special endorsing convention that is on 8-7. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION SO YOU DO NOT MISTAKENLY REGISTER FOR THE SEP CONVENTION INSTEAD OF THE JAM DOWN CONVENTION FOR THE RECALL ENDORSEMENT.

#5 RECORD THE MEETING. SCREENSHOT EVERY ISSUE WITH THE PROCESS. The only way the consultants and control agents can be held accountable is constant exposure – this is why I talk about these people by name. Andy Garakhani, David Stafford Reade and others thrive off of living in the shadows controlling outcomes.

#6 NO ENDORSEMENT WILL NOT BE AN OPTION UNITL THERE ARE ONLY TWO CANDIDATES LEFT. If you are supporting anyone not named Kevin Faulconer pay attention to this. If your guy drops off YOU MUST STAY ON UNTIL THE END SO YOU CAN VOTE FOR NO ENDORSEMENT. The CAGOP’s staff will attempt to drag the process out in hopes that non faulconer supporters leave the call.

The Kiley and Elder Campaign need to make sure their delegates (and Ose / Cox should they make it over the line) are informed that they need to stay and vote in opposition to faulconer until the process is complete.

Here is the example of the collapsing ballot so you understand:

OSE, COX, KILEY, ELDER and FAULCONER are on the first ballot. There is a vote.

Cox finishes fifth, he’s gone

OSE, KILEY, ELDER and FAULCONER advance. Then there is another vote. COX DELEGATES NEED TO STAY AND VOTE FOR SOMEONE ELSE (not named Faulconer) AT THIS ROUND.

Ose finishes fourth, he’s gone

KILEY, ELDER and FAULCONER advance, then there is another vote. COX AND OSE DELEGATES NEED TO STAY AND VOTE FOR SOMEONE ELSE (not named Faulconer) AT THIS ROUND.

Kiley finishes third, he’s gone.

Now it is ELDER, FAULCONER AND NO ENDORSEMENT ON THE BALLOT. Then there is another vote. EVERYONE THAT SUPPORTS A CANDIDATE OTHER THAN FAULCONER VOTES FOR NO ENDORSEMENT AND IT IS DEAD.

The non faulconer candidates need to make sure their people STAY ON THE CALL. They need to pay people in to the convention. They need to gather as many proxies as they can. Then they need to coordinate and make their delegates understand the collapsing ballot per my above example.

If the GOP team works together, we can save the recall from a divisive endorsement and stop the CAGOP insiders and consultants from forcing Arnold/Whitman 3.0 down our throats. It is going to be hard enough to get the recall over the line… (unless the idiot governor issues a lockdown) and we do not need to commit political suicide by endorsing ANY candidate.

Remember, I type this having endorsed both Kevin Kiley and Doug Ose for Governor.

Remember Gray Davis? We used to joke about the toll booth at the door of his office. Looks the same for Gavin Newsom and Kevin Faulconer

From 2011 through 2018, the nonprofit has paid Siebel Newsom more than $290,000 per year — $2.3 million in all — for her leadership work and for creating three documentary films on social justice themes, according to the nonprofit’s tax returns.

That’s more than 20% of the $10.4 million it received from contributors. The Newsoms’ tax returns and financial disclosure forms show she has continued to draw a salary since her husband became governor.

Many donations came from California philanthropists, venture capitalists and people who inherited great wealth.

But in recent years, as Newsom’s political star ascended, records show his wife’s nonprofit received more than $800,000 from a dozen corporations that regularly lobby state government on matters affecting their financial bottom lines. In 2015, the year Newsom announced he would run for governor, The Representation Project’s contributions increased by 30% to almost $1.6 million.

Did you know that Kevin Faulconer’s wife has an event planning business? How much you want to bet a bunch of his major donors have used her services?

Pacific Gas & Electric, then facing multiple state investigations for its role in sparking a series of devastating wildfires, was acknowledged as a “champion donor,” indicating a $25,000 donation, according to the program.

AT&T and Comcast, heavily-regulated telecoms that hoped to retain their market dominance in California, each gave $10,000.

Another donor was the Kaiser Permanente health care system, an opponent of a proposal to create a “single-payer” health plan for the state, which the new governor campaigned on. Kaiser’s president at the time, the late Bernard Tyson, was on the event’s host committee.

So was John Fisher, heir to the Gap clothing fortune and owner of the Oakland Athletics baseball team, which wanted state permits for a new stadium.

The flow of corporate donations to Newsom’s wife’s nonprofit that night are part of a pattern, a Sacramento Bee investigation found.

Fascinating.

Apparently if you wanted to throw a big bash in Downtown San Diego, Katherine Faulconer was the person to call.

Stuart, who navigated the wingding through the city’s often daunting bureaucracy, runs the couple’s lucrative Restaurant Events business.

The firm arranges with city officials for hard-to-get block closings, police protection, and other city services to accommodate downtown parties whose corporate sponsors are well heeled enough to be able to afford Stuart’s sizable fees.
Katherine Stuart (Faulconer) is Kevin Faulconer’s wife. Perhaps I need to take a look at Faulconer’s donors and see how many have business with the City and Mrs. Faulconer. No rational person could conclude that Faulconer did not influence decisions of city staff with regard to some of these events.
Information I have shows that Mrs. Faulconer’s business has grown in a similar manner to Mz Newsolini’s since their respective husbands have been in office. The details will follow more soon…
He also barred top administration officials, including his wife, from accepting gifts from lobbyists. The moves were intended to reflect Newsom’s “commitment to an administration that exceeds California’s already strong legal standards,” his top aides wrote in a letter to staff announcing the rules.
Newsom hasn’t addressed his wife’s nonprofit.
The Newsoms refused multiple requests to be interviewed for this story through The Representation Project and through spokespeople for the governor’s office and campaign.
I am shocked, I tell you shocked to find out a couple of democrats appear to be abusing their office to make money. Replacing Newsolini with Faulconer is like treating Cancer With Botulsim. The California Republican Party is about to endorse this guy through a rigged process, they must be truly suicidal.

This story came to me by way of a CRA activist in Palos Verdes.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1J8OYzPKfm1gJnXXHEushf6ua9OOhih5eXeJqnL3A5wg/edit

There are three prominent reasons why the CRNC has been failing college students across the country and its core values. 

Primarily, the CRNC has engaged in corrupt behavior and has punished those who voiced concern. The leadership of CRNC has allowed this to happen for years without any steps to address clear internal issues. They even used under-handed tactics to defederate the pro-Trump California College Republicans (CCR) in support of a Never-Trumper group, California Federation of College Republicans (CFCR). To top it off, Chandler even hid finances from his own appointed treasurer-Chandler is the only name listed on the IRS filings for several years.

The CRNC has a long history of mismanaging money, and has even paid executives high salaries and even additional funds for unclear reasons. In addition, there has not been a single year where the CRNC has been profitable. The CRNC has always spent more money than it has received, while paying ridiculous fees for consulting and other issues. 

Lastly, the CRNC has leadership that runs counter to America First. The CRNC has sided with groups with concerning beliefs. From being Never-Trumpers to supporting The Lincoln Project, there is no clear sense of leadership even representing the interests of the GOP. The CRNC has morphed into an organization that doesn’t reflect values that conservatives hold.

Some time ago, Jessica Patterson abused the resources of the CAGOP to crow about a resolution to the issues between the two College Republican Groups. Well, apparently there is more to the story.

Some of Jessica Patterson’s buddies at the CSU Long Beach CR let the cat out of the bag

The article talks extensively about how the CCR (Cal College Republicans) was torched, while their charter was handed to the other CR group in California. If it was an isolated issue it would be easy to explain, but jut recently the leadership also took out the Louisiana CR organization as well.

If you take the time to look at the document you will see the clear biases of the current leadership of the national college republicans. These were the people Jessica Patterson threw in with when she and her consultant handlers ran the CCR out of the CAGOP’s list of chartered organizations.

It makes you wonder.

There is an old saying in politics, if you want to piss everyone off – dual endorse. Well, there are 24 Republicans running on a blanket ballot so the dynamic is completely different. I am endorsing Doug Ose for Governor.

I am not being paid by any recall campaigns at this time, and my primary nexus of interest is stopping Kevin Faulconer because of the antics insiders have been employing to try and elevate the scandal-riddled far-left Republican. In the case of Doug Ose, I like the guy and I decided I wanted to endorse him.

Unlike Faulconer, as Doug Ose has aged he has become more conservative. Ose was also an original Trump supporter, something Kiley, Elder, Faulconer, Cox and the others can not claim.

I used to be completely at odds with Ose, having eviscerated him in 2008 when he ran against McClintock for Congress. The stark contrast in Ose’s actions since when juxtaposed with McClintock discarding most of his most loyal supporters in favor of a charlatan who left California 10 year ago is compelling. Ose engaged with CRA in Sacramento County to establish an understanding while McClintock threw the Placer CRA under the bus. The Chairman of the Placer GOP (also a CRA officer) in 2008 saw to it that the Placer GOP endorsed McClintock, which at the time was unheard of. Within 4 years, aided by McClintock, that Chairman was unseated and in Idaho by 2014.

Ose on the other hand has repaid the loyalty shown to him by anyone in spades. I worked for Igor Birman against Ose for Congress in 2014, but I came and helped Ose in the general election. He has never forgotten that as I was the only Birman supporter that did anything demonstrative to help him in the fall. I then had a front row seat to see thousands of ballots left blank in the general election thanks to an organized effort by the tea party. Ami Bera beat Ose in 2014 by less than 6,000 votes, only doing so with the help of the Tea Party’s blank ballot effort.

Had the Tea Party done any research, they’d have realized that Ose had become more conservative than they gave him credit for. The CRA actually endorsed Ose in the fall of 2014.

I’ve also gotten to know some of Ose’s former Congressional Staff. Dan S. and Kim V. are quality people. In fact, every one that I have met that had connections to Ose from his 1998-2004 Service in Congress have proven to be excellent quality people. That should say as much about Ose as anything else I could write.

Should Doug Ose prevail in the recall election, he’d end up being the most conservative governor California has had since the 1980’s, let that sink in.

I was told a story about Major Williams and some incident he had with a women’s federated group. When I was attempting to prove the accounts of the incident, I went looking for answers.

What I Found was a disturbing thread from some dude named Rob Pyers that a lot of insiders follow. Mr. Williams has to post his FEC/FPPC report soon and it should be pretty ugly. IT will look like Joe Collins or Bill Brough.

IN the meantime, let’s have a look at a few things Major… From Axios we get the following:

  • Williams, a Republican, failed to qualify for the recall ballot, which the California secretary of state’s office officially released last weekend.
  • State records show he hadn’t even filed much of the paperwork required to earn a spot. Williams’ campaign, which raised nearly $300,000, was “almost borderline fraudulent,” Perez wrote.
  • In a series of Instagram posts this week, Williams blamed the paperwork errors on his staff and what he described as the forced closure of the campaign’s bank account. He also announced his intention to run as a write-in candidate.

What Williams has already won is extensive earned media, particularly from conservative outlets. He even landed a coveted interview on the Fox News morning program “Fox & Friends.”

  • Williams has continued asking for donations, even after being cut off by the online payment processor Anedot. “Our Accounts team became aware of certain information and closed the account,” an Anedot spokesperson told Axios.
  • Williams’ campaign referred questions to statements on his Instagram account, in which he’s denied he’s in the race to boost his personal profile. “I don’t want to be this social media influencer,” he said in one video this week.
  • But he’s turned to the influencer monetization platform Monytize, where Williams is now steering his social media followers. He’s also selling merchandise at the website AmerciaForever.com, which says in a disclaimer, “This is a private, for-profit business. No allifiation [sic] with” the Williams campaign.

Imagine that. We’ve written about Joe Collins and his con job. We’ve written about William “Bill” Brough. Now, here we go with Major Woody. His con got so bad that Anedot.com terminated his account.

Let’s have a look at Major “woody” Williams for Governor…

So Courtney La Paul Williams has had quite a history of reinventing himself to run his latest game it looks like. I don’t think he cared weather or not he made the recall ballot – in fact, in some regards, his life got easier by failing to qualify.

Some campaign finance regulator is going to get a major woody looking at this guy’s filings.

So – Major Williams raised $300K for his Governor run but never bothered to even take his papers?

The natural question to ask is what happened to the money? I will bet that Major Woody was on the Joe Collins campaign plan… just a hunch.
