Assemblyman William “Bill” Brough – embroiled in two scandals. #1 an active FPPC investigation in to misappropriation of campaign funds and 4 documented female victims of his out of control behavior.
Jackson Hinkle – extreme left wing protester. Got arrested in Washington DC. He Boycotted the 4th of July (or celebrated if you use his words) doing an #OCCUPYICE protest. He has espoused free needles, legalizing prostitution and Heroin. He has railed on the police as agents of oppression. He is the most viable challenger to Gene James in San Clemente. A 20 year old communist. The Republican Alternative to this leftist wackjob? The Bully Gene James. I am wondering if I am just having a nightmare and someday I will wake up and San Clemente will be a normal town again.
Leftist Dark Money Groups are Pouring Money in to Hinkle
Take a look at the photo. It is a big parking lot, with lots of room. Gene James’ Silver Truck is Backed in along with the Tan Truck of another person (who is not a candidate so I will not mention them by name). They could have parked anywhere. Look at the position of the tarps. Why would the trucks back in? Why are the trucks idling – sometimes for 15 minutes? The Grey truck is Gene James’ truck. I’ve been told by eyewitnesses about a raft of issues… (I spoke with the person that took this picture of Gene James and another man blowing exhaust in to the shelters of the homeless that used to be at North Beach in San Clemente)
So there was a homeless camp with a reputed brothel tent and people dealing drugs on the sidewalk. The frustrated residents of San Clemente took the law in to their own hands and started harassing the homeless – throwing rocks, firecrackers and of course this truck exhaust incident. I have spoken at length with people that minister to the homeless and they have had multiple issues with citizens harassing the homeless. There is ample proof in photos and videos too.
Leave it to a citizen who left a comment:
Why would he need to back into a stall to make a point. Wouldn’t it make sense to just pull in? And the brown Tundra who accompanied Gene James, was he making a point as well? The SC Homeless bashers talked and joked about blowing exhaust into the tents on FB. Gene also knew that the occupant of that tent was a disabled homeless vet and Mr James must know what carbon monoxide does to a person. A crime indeed and horrifying that anyone would consider doing something that low.
Jackson Hinkle’s solution: Trash the police whose patrols have helped reduce crime and suggest free needles and legalizing crime. This is the polar opposite extreme to the abusive Gene James and would have far greater societal impact than Gene James assaulting homeless people. Congratulations San Clemente.
Where are the leaders of the Orange County Republican Party? The only response I have seen from Fred Whitaker and most others on the Orange County Republican Executive Committee was to forward the information I had sent them to Gene James and his campaign. They never followed up and basically gave Gene James a pass. The best they could muster was a weak resolution calling on Bill Brough to retire despite the very public evidence of corruption and sexual misconduct.
San Clemente? They are willfully blind to Gene James, Jackson Hinkle and Bill Brough because the only thing that matters is the damn toll road. I don’t care about the toll road. I care about what happens to Orange County and the kind of people running it. This is why I have railed on the feckless leadership of the OCGOP. This is also why I am sounding the alarm about Jackson Hinkle – he literally is the Manchurian (Communist) candidate!
I don’t discriminate by party. Jackson Hinkle scares me because his documented behavior tells me he hates people like be because of my faith and conservative values, and the alternative are the feckless nincompoops that are running the OCGOP in to the ground.
Check out the recently filed lawsuit against the City of San Clemente. (Read it here)
Got all that? Throwing Firecrackers at defenseless people, Throwing Rocks at defenseless people, showing up at the crack of dawn yelling at people, pumping truck exhaust in to shelters… and people on the ground indicate that they had to deal with Gene James doing the abusing frequently. In the words of one who works with the homeless on a daily basis, “Until his campaign for City Council, Gene James was down there at least once a week or more. I’ve dealt with him many times.” You can’t lend the good name of the GOP to a vigilante.
This photo is provided for proof that Gene James’ truck is in the above photo.
It looks like the OC GOP has forfeited any moral high ground as they can neither claim to be social conservatives (they don’t stand up for crime victims) and can not claim to be fiscal conservatives (they refuse to deal with campaign corruption by Bill Brough, tax liens, civil judgments and the like). The OCGOP should have sat out this race if they did not want to endorse one of the other Republicans.
The OC Firefighters have given themselves two black eyes by endorsing this wackjob Jackson Hinkle. Trying to solve societal problems with a little kid that hates authority is like injecting a cancer patient with poison. How do the OC Firefighters look at the OC Sheriff’s anymore after this decision.
I’ve talked to a few ex-Republicans and to a person, they all talk about the good ol boys club and the moral bankruptcy of the local GOP. Look at them: Gene James, Bill Brough, Pat Bates.
Meantime, San Clemente is an insane asylum.
