Fortune should be running in some dark blue area, but imagine that she lives in El Dorado Hills. (I wonder why)

What have we learned thus far about Margaret Fortune:

  1. Led a protest that shut down the Bay Bridge
  2. Screams racism at every opportunity
  3. Is Easily connected to far-left progressive groups
  4. Is a member of the El Dorado County Democrat Party Executive Board.
  5. Is a national board member of a Jew-Hating Group whose leaders say, “We hope this cracker suffers”, calls Jews “Bloodsuckers” and referred Israel as “Hell”.

Easily found on the internet is Fortune’s bio in her own words. It is quite the far-left resume:

At the end of said resume, she touts being a member of the El Dorado County Resource Conservation District. But her record of “service” tells someone that she is trying to build a resume versus actual service.

Through August 2023, Margaret Fortune has only attended 6 of the 10 board meetings in 2023 for the El Dorado County Resource Conservation District Board. And she was absent from January 2024 meeting. https://www.eldoradorcd.org/meeting-minutes

(Note:  They stopped posting attendance after the August meeting) – Election date November 2022, first meeting Dec 2022 where she was sworn in. This is a big deal since this is the only elected office, and only real political tie to El Dorado county Fortune has!  If she can’t attend these meetings, how can we expect her to attend BOS meetings? Since Fortune is using her “service” on the El Dorado RCD to burnish her credibility and electability in all her political communications, it is completely legitimate to call BS and also to ask why the ElDo RCD has started hiding meeting attendance from the public… 

It gets better:

Margaret Fortune has lived in El Dorado Hills for 9 years but does not highlight any involvement in the El Dorado Hills community. She joined the El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce one week before she launched her candidacy for Board of Supervisors!

Dr. Margaret Fortune?

So let’s see – absentee board member of the El Do RCD?

Joined Chamber of Commerce a week before running?

… and has an “Honorary Doctorate” yet calls herself a Doctor? Sounds like we have some serious fraud going on here. I could find nothing anywhere showing that Fortune earned an actual degree. All I found is this:

Link Here to Web Page. Screenshot saved here in case she edits her webpage.

Here is the money quote: She was awarded an honorary doctorate from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for her substantial contributions to the field of education.

Calling yourself a doctor when you did not earn the degree is a lie and insults all who actually did earn PHD’s. I’d tell her to be ashamed of herself, but I am sure by this point in my expose’ she is running around telling people your intrepid blogger is a racist. This is what flaming liberal activists do when they get caught. (Note that I wrote this sentence on 2-10-2024 and loaded this post for a future display date)

She is also CFO of the Sacramento Chapter of the Al Sharpton Jew-Hating Group:

While CFO of this group, the group was served with a delinquency notice for failing to file TWO tax returns.

In addition Fortune’s own school got lit up with a $25,000 fine that was later dismissed, but the litany of charges suggests that the school was shut down for a period of time in the interim. It appears from the document that they were operating without a license or a complete license for around 11 years at the time of the notice.

Finally, Fortune touts her involvement in St. Hope academy, that was founded by former Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson. The school has been scandal-ridden. And this article from 2018.

So – what we have demonstrated here is that Margaret Fortune has demonstrated a personal pattern of outright lying. She has also made a career out of inflaming race issues, including serving on the board of an organization with a documented history of Jew-Hate. She has also lied about her qualifications and appears to be using the El Dorado RCD and El Dorado Chamber to make a false resume. Lastly, she has been a party to several legal actions for malfeasance by state agencies.

Beyond being a flaming leftist, we know that Fortune is dishonest, has a thin resume and can not be relied upon to manage anything. She should be rejected by the voters of ANY district much less El Dorado Hills.

I fixed Patterson’s Tweet to reflect the truth. (Still omitted are the nearly 3 Million new dems in the same time period, but I digress…)

Jessica Patterson has repeatedly and falsely claimed that the California Republican Party has registered XX voters during her reign as CAGOP Chairwoman. In California, when you get a driver’s license, you are automatically registered to vote. This includes illegal aliens despite claims there are controls on the process. Every audit finds a ton.

That Lie is to cover up that the CAGOP has had no organized or consistent voter registration program for years. In fact, the CAGOP has not been much more than a conduit for large donors to fund candidates. This is my opinion based on evidence and observation over the years. The State Party does not even attempt to register voters – one of its’ alleged primary functions.

The fact that Patterson would attempt to peddle this registration lie to the national party shows that the carefully crafted plan by Kevin McCarthy and her other handlers has come apart at the seams.

Donald Trump knows that Jessica Patterson is a never-trumper. At least your intrepid blogger is honest, I don’t like Donald Trump but I will do my part to elect him now that he is the nominee. Patterson can’t even claim that. While no one will come on the record on this blog to confirm, the number of people I have talked about Patterson being a Never-Trumper to is substantial and it would be easily proven in a court proceeding.

Even though I think it is absurd that Trump’s choice for Co-Chair of the RNC is his daughter and all that comes with it, Jessica Patterson would be worse. That is my opinion having been on the receiving end of her bile for years. She has never taken me on publicly, it has been series of cowardly moves under the cover of the smoke-filled room. Were Patterson to get elected RNC Chair, everyone beyond your intrepid blogger would end up on a political hit list.

In case you forgot, the FBI showed up at my house when I was working for Steve Frank against her. Frank would later tell people that me working for him was a temporary thing and that he still hates me. This means that the 2021 Chair race featured two of the same kind of people running for chair. One was more conservative than the other. Joy.

Now compare Jessica and Steve’s approach to your intrepid blogger. I don’t like Trump. My guy drops out. I endorse Trump. I help Trump. Patterson? Permanent resentments and half hearted support at best for nominees she does not like. I am really sick of moderates demanding party loyalty and when their guy loses, they leave the scene with the old worn out “that guy can’t win” routine. Omitted from the canard is all the money wasted destroying the conservative in the primary.

As for me, I can work with anyone on a campaign for a common cause. My personal issues are subordinated to the health and welfare of the Republican Party. The better the Republican Party does, the better off our country is.

However, Jessica’s behavior is not the pattern you want as an RNC Chair, let alone a state chair. This behavior guarantees failure. Rage and Revenge is not profitable.

One of the stories I have known that I have not typed on this blog until now, is being revealed now because I think it matters. Political insiders are skilled at one thing, keeping control. One of the manifestations is always lining up the next office.

I had known for years Jessica Patterson was being groomed for RNC Chair by people that may or may not include Kevin McCarthy. I never had much more than insider chatter to prove it.

I was at the 2023 CAGOP Convention because I had some interests in the outcomes of several CAGOP officer races. During the Sunday Session before the voting there was some floor drama, so I excused myself from the floor drama, going in to the lobby to return some calls.

I was within earshot of a vendor table where two attractive 30-40 something women were talking to one of the vendors still in his booth. One revealed that she was Jessica Patterson’s Hair Stylist and the other indicated she was an Esthetician. Both indicated they were from Southern California. I overheard these things as I was only 10 feet away.

Was donor money paying for their services, Hotel Rooms, Travel?

Why would someone who is a state party chair have a professional entourage?

There is only one logical explanation for this – Patterson needed to look good for the cameras in order to set an image. You’d only do this if you had an end game for said image.

Your intrepid blogger does have a suggestion for Ms. Patterson, She should get herself a signed pair and start sporting them around in public. That would sure help with an image.

I mean hell, Patterson and crew changed the CAGOP Delegate Rules to help Donald Trump, at the very least Patterson should get a pair signed for a nice parting gift…

Suzanne Jones got the endorsement of the Placer GOP in the Placer County Supervisorial District 4 with the entry of Jeff Moss into the race. If you are wondering what those guys signed on to – read on.

Her candidate questionnaire is linked here for reference.

In her questionnaire, Suzanne attempts to lerch far right on a variety of issues. There deserves to be real scrutiny of what she is claiming, especially in light of her appointments of Democrats and Green Party members to key positions in Placer County.

On Page 2 of her questionnaire, Suzanne Jones talks about “Transparent Governance.”

Jones worked with Placer County Counsel ostensibly in secret to eviscerate portions of the Placer County anti-nepotism policy. (Remember how bad it was that Kirk Uhler’s wife Tammy works for Placer County?)

One or Two meetings after getting the Placer County Nepotism policy changed, Jones got her brother, who has a different last name, appointed to be her district staffer! I guess transparency and ethics was a thing until it was an impediment.

The job pays six figures as well. Must be nice to get elected and then get the rules changed to hire your brother. Transparency.

People on the Placer GOP should be concerned and ask questions about the propriety of getting close relatives government jobs. They should also ask about the timing of events and the seemingly backroom clandestine nature of the proceedings.

In her biography – she touts helping Congressman Tom McClintock. Years later, as a supervisor, she appointed Kristine Johnson to the Granite Bay MAC. In 2014, Johnson ran against Tom McClintock.

She openly touts supporting Pam Tobin, whose husband was a life-long far left labor union organizer and Pam herself was always a reliable supporter of the left of Placer County. Pam ran against BOTH Ted Gaines and Kirk Uhler for supervisor.

She talks about working with the California Pro-Life Council yet appointed a far left Green Party Member to the Placer County Commission that deals with Health Care Issues.

On Page 4 of her application, she talks about her stand on taxes. She failed to mention that she hosted a Townhall for an upcoming effort to run a Transportation Tax in Placer County. Perhaps the members of the committee should have an open discussion about where Jones really stands on these sorts of measures. The opposition to the Transportation Tax is largely amongst the members of the Placer GOP and they are considering endorsing someone hosting meetings to promote it.

On Page 5 – Jones claims to have led the effort against Mask Mandates, Vaccine Mandates and COVID policy in general. This is an outright lie.

All five members of the Placer County Board of supervisors on August 2020 board meeting voted to lift the state of emergency in Placer County. Suzanne Jones was not on the board then and her assertion that she was the only one is impossible as there were never mask or vaccine mandates in Placer County ever. Then, by the time she took office, the State of Emergency was gone making COVID policy a non-issue. It is this sort of nuance that she appears to be trying to manipulate in order to advance herself absent facts.

Her predecessor Kirk Uhler led the effort to remove the state of emergency and was attacked publicly by several people for doing so.

The questionnaire goes on to ask if Suzanne Jones has endorsed, supported or contributed to non-Republican Candidates in the last 4 years. It also asks if she pledges to only support Republican Candidates going forward.

Planning Commissioner Daniel Woodward is a Democrat. Unlike someone running for office, Woodward was appointed by Suzanne Jones directly in to a position of power where there is no accountability to voters. That is the political equivalent of asking Jack the Ripper to babysit.

Supporting Non-Republicans? Here are the rest of Suzanne Jones’ non-Republican appointments:

Lisa Cataldo – Green Party
Tameka Usher – American Independent
Dojna Marie Garvey – Democrat
Amber Beckler – NPP
Kristine Johnson – D (Tom McClintock’s 2014 Opponent)
Christopher Hill – NPP

At what point do people looking to advance the Republican Party start to ask questions about appointing a Green Party member to a board that deals with a range of public health issues (Abortion, Homelessness, Drug Abuse), and wonder if Suzanne Jones is serious at all about any of her answers to questions about the issues of the day?

I will close by saying that Sandy Harris, who is actually a registered Republican (in the same vane as Pam Tobin), was part of the crew in 2002 that attempted to unseat then Placer GOP Chair Ken Campbell. She was also part of the group that attempted to stop Bayside Church from being built back in the 1990’s, actually suing Placer County to overturn the decision of the board of supervisors ultimately losing badly in court.

Suzanne Jones has parachuted a host of people that oppose the Republican Party and Placer County’s way of life in to positions of power that are not accountable to the voters. The members of the Placer GOP ignored the truth, choosing the personal rage of a couple members, endorsing her should take pause and then move on to another candidate.

P.S. You can make bank Jeff Moss will remedy all of these bad appointments.

BUT BUT BUT, he’s the conservative…

That Burger Don’t Hunt

Some time ago we introduced you to the Frank-Hamburger Alliance, a BBQ of Bulls–t.

DJ’s history as an activist should give the CAGOP purity police pause. He was a board member of an organization that promotes Gay Marriage, is generally pro-choice, and is pro-trans. That group also supported nationwide bans on Christian parents seeking counseling for children struggling with their sexuality and bans on faith-based groups that do not toe the line on homosexual adoptions. It is a sad irony that the Barbeque of Bulls–t has fired up over one LGBT bill and one abortion vote when the case could easily be made that DJ is far to the left of Suzette on various social issues.

Since writing that original post, we’ve expanded upon this concept.

DJ Hamburger in his own words advocates for French-Style abortion laws.

Similar to his former employer Abel Maldonado, DJ calls for French-Style abortion laws. Don’t take my word for it: Here is Donald James Hamburger on the dope rhyme himself.

French Abortion Laws?

PARIS (AP) — France’s National Assembly on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved a bill meant to enshrine a woman’s right to an abortion in the French Constitution, the first key step in a legislative process that also requires a vote in the Senate.

In case you are unclear of the motive or the impact:

The government argued in its introduction to the bill that the right to abortion is threatened in the United States, where the Supreme Court in 2022 overturned a 50-year-old ruling that had guaranteed the right to an abortion.

“Unfortunately, this event is not isolated: in many countries, even in Europe, there are currents of opinion that seek to hinder at any cost the freedom of women to terminate their pregnancy if they wish,” the introduction to the French legislation says.

Yikes. Then DJ goes after the Church while calling for amending the Civil Rights Act to Include Homosexuality. Should DJ get his way, Churches would be forced to hire drag queens and do gay marriages.

Listen to this video, at about the 26 Minute Mark through the 34st Minute.

Listen carefully to what DJ said. He is clearly using the far-left talking points against the church and the supreme court. He is trashing the Masterpiece Bakery decision from SCOTUS.

He is citing an New York Times article as the basis . At the 30 minute mark he suggests the 1964 Civil Rights Act should be modified, in fact, DJ argues we should amend the US Civil Rights Act and the US Constitution to include sexual identity and gender identity.

All throughout this conversation, DJ also undercuts religious freedom and liberty and implies how churches should be forced to adopt these policies.

It is not hard to find stuff like this with DJ attacking states like Tennessee for their conservative values and all throughout this interview he makes broad statements and slippery slope fallacies against socially conservative states.

Some conservative.

In the same video linked above is another bombshell.

Jump to minute 49.

He calls Boy Scouts Sexist. As an Eagle Scout, this attack on the Boy Scouts is absurd. He also attacks the Eagle Scout award’s significance as well in an attempt to justify that boys or girls can choose which scouting org they self-identify with: girl scouts OR boy scouts. “If you think that girl scouts is a better program you should be able to choose that, if you think boy scouts is better you should be able to choose that.”

This is definitely the mind of a platform-destroyer. This is not the mind of a conservative for sure. DJ should have run to the left of Suzette Valadares, but when you have fired up the BBQ of BS, you set out on a collision course with reality.

Dude. Yoga. This is your calling.

With regards to life after losing, your intrepid blogger recommends taking this site down:

DJ also has some interesting stuff on the internet advertising his skills for employment. For $1.98, you can hire him for a cameo.

For any of you that still might think this guy is viable, there is this:

As I typed in my previous post, Hamburger has so much stuff on his social media that should he make the runoff against a Democrat for SD-23, he’d get massacred. Judge for yourself with this sample. Your intrepid blogger is not camera-shy, but I would not want to be in the video, either! (You need Facebook access to experience this video)

If you live in Senate District 23, consider yourself warned..

Feb 152024

In our first installment of the series on Margaret Fortune, we detailed her irrefutable associations with the Progressive Alliance and the El Dorado County Democrat Party. There are even more entanglements in the life of this activist leftist democrat. She is also a state democrat party board member and delegate. Yikes.

When you look at this list of stuff you see clear patterns. This is certainly not the resume of a conservative by any way, shape or form. I am not sure what Fortune was thinking when she decided to spend a ton of money trying to re-invent herself to voters. Certainly she did not expect your intrepid blogger to call bs.

What jumps out to me is her out and proud association with the vile anti-semite Al Sharpton. This makes me wonder if Mz. Fortune is also a Hamas-supporting Ceasefire advocate too.

“Dr.” Margaret Fortune? Hmmm…

Let’s have a look at the feature plank of Fortune’s resume (which, I note has zero mention of her Charter School Advocacy on it):

Here is who Democrats are Praising when they Praise Al Sharpton.

Sharpton first became a major public figure during the 1987 Tawana Brawley case, in which he claimed the black teenage girl had been abducted and raped by a white gang that included an assistant district attorney in Dutchess County, Steven Pagones. In numerous media appearances Sharpton pointed the finger at Pagones and declared a racist cover-up by law enforcement — with zero evidence to support his claims. In 1988, a grand jury cleared Pagones of any wrongdoing, finding that the alleged incident never even happened. But the damage was already done. Pagones’s career as a prosecutor was over, he and his family were under constant death threats and his marriage eventually broke up under the resulting stresses. In 1998, Pagones won a defamation suit against Sharpton, but Sharpton refused to pay the $65,000 in damages owed, claiming he didn’t have the money. After nearly three years of foot dragging, Sharpton supporters paid the debt on his behalf, but he has never apologized to Pagones.

Given Fortune’s open hostility to the police, there is certainly a commonality here.

In July 1991, a controversy erupted when Leonard Jeffries, a professor at New York’s City College gave a speech blasting “rich Jews” for financing the slave trade and for controlling Hollywood so they could “put together a system of destruction for black people.”

Sharpton rushed to defend Jeffries, and in the middle of the swirling controversy, declared, “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.”

A day after Sharpton made that comment, in August 1991, a Jewish driver accidentally ran over a 7-year-old black boy named Gavin Cato in Crown Heights, Brooklyn and an anti-Semitic riot broke out in which Jewish rabbinical scholar Yankel Rosenbaum was stabbed to death. Instead of calling for calm, Sharpton incited the rioters, leading marches in the streets that included chants of “No Justice, No Peace!” and “Kill the Jews!” At a funeral for the boy who had been run over, Sharpton said, “The world will tell us he was killed by accident. Yes, it was a social accident. … It’s an accident to allow an apartheid ambulance service in the middle of Crown Heights. … Talk about how Oppenheimer in South Africa sends diamonds straight to Tel Aviv and deals with the diamond merchants right here in Crown Heights.” For those unfamiliar, “diamond merchants” was a thinly-veiled reference to Jewish jewelers.

In the words of Margaret Fortune:

Taken together, Weber’s bills offer a provocative challenge to a blue state where black youth struggle with the reality that they are targeted by the police, but not for school funding.

Different subjects, but the same style of over-the-top race baiting.

After an investigation, no indictment was made of the driver who had accidentally run over Cato, and he left for Israel. Sharpton flew there in an attempt to “hunt down” the driver and hand him a civil law suit. According to the Daily News, at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport, a woman spotted Sharpton and shouted, “Go to hell!” Sharpton yelled back: “I am in hell already. I am in Israel.”

Fortune is on the Board of this dude’s “Charity”, the National Action Network.

About four years after the Crown Heights affair, in 1995, Al Sharpton through his National Action Network, injected himself in a landlord-tenant dispute in Harlem, which soon turned deadly. As recounted in Fred Siegel’s book Prince of the City, a black Pentecostal church raised the rent of its Jewish tenant, who owned the store Freddy’s Fashion Mart, so the Jewish owner in turn raised the rent on his black sub-tenant, who ran a record store. Sharpton immediately saw an opening for racial demagoguery, and went on radio, declaring, “We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business on 125th Street.” His underling, Morris Powell, vowed, “This street will burn. We are going to see to it that this cracker suffers.”

Protesters led by Sharpton’s National Action Network picketed outside the store day after day, referring to Jews as “bloodsuckers” and threatening, “We’re going to burn and loot the Jews.” The demonstrators also struck matches and threw them into the store’s doorway. Two months into the protest, one of the demonstrators stormed into the store armed with a gun, and burned the place to the ground, killing seven people, and shooting himself.

This is the National Action Network. What a group for Margaret Fortune to be on the board of. While calling for Defunding the Police, the group calls for violence against Jews… and has a history of participation in actual violence.

Now we have more problems than just Fortune’s long history of being a flaming leftist. He membership in the board of directors of a proven racist and destructive organization should give everyone pause.

In case there is any question about where this blogger stands:

To the voters of El Dorado County, I hope you find these blogs about Margaret fortune informative and scary at the same time. She must be stopped.

To be continued…
