The original mascot of the Right on Daily Blog

It was December of 2009, the Red County Blog had taken $25,000 from the Meg Whitman for Governor Campaign. Then, 4 days later they expelled me from the Red County Blog. A week later, the Right on Daily Blog was born. This was done so I would have independence from anyone else’s system. That was 12-16-2009

Mrs. Park gets the credit for the name Right on Daily Blog – it was her idea.

I had actually started blogging in 2003 I used the Blogger/Blogspot Platform and had a blog called the Roseville Conservative. A variety of things happened and in 2006 I was invited onto the Red County System.

(Note, Red County went defunct as its’ founder ended up with some major legal trouble)

Those of you that read this blog read it because of the subject matter and my unique writing style. I like to think it was my memes.

Some people tried to throw me off the Placer GOP Cent Com for this one. (This was in response to the Bee Article in 7-11-2011 that quoted Gaines and LaMalfa attacking my brother, then the treasurer of the Placer GOP)

I’ve been kicked off more than one blog platform because the owners can’t handle the fire. But no one can ban the Right on Daily Blog.

Here are some of my Greatest Hits as a Blogger (all but Item #1 were on the Right on Daily Blog):

  1. Helped Tom McClintock defeat Doug Ose in what was then the 2nd most expensive Congressional Race in History. 2008
  2. Almost Single-Handedly took down a Judge Candidate in Amador County 2012 (Jeff Seaton vs now Judge Hermanson)
  3. Broke the news of deranged legislative staffer Steve Davey’s Termination 2 years before the Assembly Rules Committee’s #METOO Report Came out. 2017
  4. Blew up Assemblyman Tim Donnelly exposing him as one of the biggest frauds in California Republican Politics. 2014 – Present
  5. Played a Major Role in unseating a corrupt incumbent Sheriff in Riverside County (Stan Sniff) 2018
  6. Played a Major Role in the John Cox for Governor Primary, then ended up helping the CAGOP Chair Campaign of Travis Allen who I opposed on behalf of Cox. 2018-2019. How I pulled that off I will never know… but hey, I have both their numbers in my cell phone!
  7. Should Bill Brough lose in March of 2020, he’d be the second major take-down of an incumbent by the Right on Daily Blog. We broke story after story about William “Bill” Brough and got statewide media mentions of Right on Daily and coverage in our efforts to unseat a corrupt incumbent. Brough has been abandoned by the OCGOP and the CAGOP due in no small part to his exposure on Right on Daily.
  8. Blasted Karen England so bad that she cut and ran to Nevada after spending years trying to destroy your intrepid blogger. 2011-2015
  9. Wrote detailed posts about an array of fraudulent ballot measures. Stop SB48, SB277, SB777, and others, Sometimes the Right on Daily Blog was the only source of the truth about these fraudulent efforts. 2010-current
  10. Participated in running a dozen democrats out of local office over the last decade. See below for a sample of some mail we helped write in addition to the blogs!

We helped unseat a democrat supervisor in Placer County in 2018!

This dates back to a 2010 US Senate Race Republican Primary. I will never forget Orly Taitz

Then of course your intrepid blogger gets fan mail. Lots of it. Sometimes, we get paper mail like this:

Sent to my insurance agency HQ, a hand written note.

Well, unless God calls my number, I will be here for another decade! I can’t wait for all the fun…

P.S. The very first story on Right On Daily? We blasted former Rocklin Mayor Peter Hill for leaving the GOP. His reason? The Placer GOP opposed a park tax measure he was pushing and opposed a $500 Million Sierra College Bond Measure. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Placer Politics 2014’s Winners and Losers

 2014 Elections, Placer County Republican Party  Comments Off on Placer Politics 2014’s Winners and Losers
Jan 022015

Everyone does this for State and National, but allow your intrepid blogger to take a stab at naming the biggest winners and losers in Placer Politics.


Congressman Tom McClintock – despite a passionate opposition and circumstances lined up to favor a challenger, McClintock reminded people of his dominance with a blowout win.

Susan Halldin – finished first as a first-time candidate in the Rocklin School Board race. Impressive, indeed.

Roseville Joint Union High School District – the two recruits of Placer County’s far left got trounced in their attempts at office.

Roseville City Council-Member Tim Herman – he was the primary beneficiary to derail the attempt for a Roseville City Council election by one of 2014’s biggest losers. Even though Herman is still packing grudges from his 2010 run, his re-election was all but assured due to the efforts of several people who put aside their personal issues for the greater good of Roseville.

Town of Loomis – the wipe-out of the left-wing anti-growth faction in that town is complete. A slate of Brian Baker, Robert Black and long-time incumbent bomb-thrower Miguel Ucovich decimated the field. Sandra Calvert and Vic Markey were both defeated spectacularly.

Big Daddy Jack Duran – due to one of the losers below, he was re-elected without opposition, he stayed out of the Congressional Primary and managed to keep his fingerprints off of the Roseville election drama. Meantime, he has been on an ego-trip that no one can do anything about.

League of Placer County Taxpayers – stepped in to the gap left by the ineptitude of the Placer GOP and led the effort to defeat the attempt by the Placer dems to steal local office seats.

Placer County Board of Supervisors – Measure B passed in a landslide. They ring in the new year with real pay and real benefits.

Bonus – Placer County wins because it will be easier to recruit opponents for Jennifer Montgomery and Jack Duran in future elections.


Placer County Republican Party – The current Central Committee is dominated by local Tea Party Members who are aligned with moderate Republican Dennis Revell. The Central Committee raised less than $20k, with almost $14k of that coming from candidates paying for their place on the slate mailer. The previous chairman raised $26k, with next to nothing from candidates. Worse, the Placer GOP was able to mount almost no effort against upstart Art Moore or any of the Democrat recruits for local office. Worse, the inept party structure was helpless to find a candidate against Big Daddy Jack Duran.

Bonus – Beth Gaines, Ted Gaines, Jim Nielsen, Doug LaMalfa, Tom McClintock, Frank Bigelow make the list by association – all participated in the train-wreck that is the current structure of the Placer GOP Central Committee.

Mike Holmes – the Vice-Chairman of the PLACER GOP LOST HIS OWN RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN. Where were all his Tea Party allies? Where were all his friends on the Placer GOP? #epicfail

Rene Aguilera (pronounced aggie-lair-uh, or else you are racist). He got hammered at the ballot box, He got exposed in the local media and as a bonus, everyone associated with him got slaughtered at the ballot box as well.

People that hate the Placer County Board of Supervisors – they got a 138% pay raise and benefits with 62% of the vote. Once again, the natural opposition to the board of supervisors would have been based in the local GOP, but alas…

The Biggest Story out of the above, IMO is:

Unless you were under a rock, the GOP had a great year in 2014… but in Placer County, it took the NON-PARTISAN League of Placer County Taxpayers to save the bacon of the City of Roseville whilst the local GOP was moribund, asleep and inept.

… and liberal labor-union democrat moonbat Jack Duran slipped back in unopposed.

In one hashtag the biggest story of 2014: #epicfailplacergop

Nov 142014

Well gheez. Let me summarize for those of you with short attention spans. Pro-Life Conservatives romped all over the country. In California, the selected / preferred candidates were not Conservatives. Doug Ose, Jeff Gorrell, Brian Nestande and the extreme leftist Carl DiMaio were the preferred nominees for Congress.

Granted, I warmed up to the point of personally endorsing Doug Ose, and I also liked Jeff Gorrell a lot as well. But, all four of them lost.

I spoke to a Republican Consultant with connections all over the Country who told me that the big money was staying out of California or was withdrawing from California. This conversation was in Mid-September. The money people made a conscious decision to withdraw from California.

In addition – many of these moderate candidates for various reasons were not able to unify their base. Doug Ose, Jeff Gorrell and Carl DiMaio received millions in support. They all lost – Ose by the slimmest of margins.

However, four Conservatives running in races that were not regarded as top-tier did almost as well as the leading moderates did (all out performed DiMaio) with little or no funding! These would be Chris Mitchum, Dan Logue, Tony Amador and Paul Chabot. All four were unabashed social conservatives and all performed as well as other socially liberal candidates who were fully funded.

Let’s separate out Carl DiMaio – he was a disaster from the word go. It appears from people I have spoken to that he decided to run and was not recruited. However, the attention he got was absurd considering that the opposition research file on him is hundreds of pages and appears to lay out a pattern of sexual deviance. DiMaio was so far left on so many issues that a wide-range of people got sick to their stomachs and stayed home – this before the ghastly details of his behavior came out.

Brian Nestande in CA-36 was favored over Paul Chabot in CA-31. Nestande, a tax-raising liberal Republican got hammered. The DCCC / Pelosi PAC spent $2 million attacking Chabot and still only got a marginal victory for their man. The NRCC moved their HQ out of Chabot’s district to Nestande’s. As of the writing of this blog – Chabot is within 4 points.

Jeff Gorrell was an excellent candidate and the democrats ran a successful campaign against him using the flaws of another candidate on the ballot in order to suppress voter turnout among seniors. Again, however – there was a vicious and brutal primary in the accompanying assembly district that the wounds were not healed from. It took Gorrell down as well.

Doug Ose had a very liberal record when he served in Congress. He won a spirited primary against Igor Birman (who I supported). In this case – Doug Ose did reach out to groups hostile to him in the primary. The CRA took the unusual move of Post-Primary endorsing Doug Ose as a sign of party unity. However, many tea parties refused to return Ose’s phone calls and many organized an effort to sabotage Doug Ose’s campaign. As of the writing of this blog – there are about 6500 under-votes in the CA-07 race, suggesting that the Tea Party effort succeeded in re-electing liberal democrat Ami Bera. (Ose is losing by roughly 700 votes and will likely lose by about 1500 when the count is complete)

For various reasons – the Conservatives were thrown to the wolves. It was the prevailing wisdom that CA-03 (Dan Logue) was un-reachable because of the 10 point spread – now go explain Johnny Tacherra in CA-16… pro-life, pro-prop-8 and got within a couple hundred votes of entrenched incumbent Jim Costa in a -15 dem district? Tacherra was on no one’s radar. He is an unabashed conservative – endorsed pre-primary by the CRA.

Paul Chabot in CA-31 was given up for dead when he beat lobbyist and Washington DC insider Lesli Gooch in the CA-31 Primary. The DCCC hammered Chabot with Radio, TV and by Chabot’s count 26 pieces of mail. Chabot, a hard-core conservative came within 4 points.

Chris Mitchum and Tony Amador won contested primaries in CA-24 and CA-09 respectively – both came within 5 points of their dem incumbent opponents. In the case of Mitchum, the DCCC actually spent money against him!

No one gave Logue, Mitchum, Amador, Tacherra or Chabot the time of day – and their performance in the absence of funding indicates they would have won even with token amounts of help.

The big money people wrote off California.

The reasons why are not what many will say on the surface. The powers to be in California did not take a thorough enough look at the candidates and districts. I do not have enough data to suggest that GOP leadership discriminated against Conservatives.

Wealthy Financier Charles Munger did in state races. But, he is not the GOP leadership – despite the claims of some. Munger did not play IE’s in any congressional races in 2014 in California. Mr Munger lost roughly 80% of the races he spent in – but two key wins in dem-leaning districts he contributed significant IE’s to.

Congressional Races are more of a national flavor – people vote based on the direction of the country. This is the dynamic that IMO, the CA GOP leadership missed when picking their targets. All over the nation – Pro-Life and Pro-Family Conservatives destroyed their opponents.

I’d also be remiss if I did not mention that the “fit the district” argument is something that many in CA GOP leadership overuse. I believe that the candidate themself is far more important than the social issue demagoguery that sometimes happens in a campaign.

Look at NV-04. Right-Wing Conservative Rancher Crescent Hardy Took out Stephen Horsford a first term congressman that was a former speaker of the Nevada House. The district? -14 dem.

Instead, in California – we had some seriously flawed candidates who appear to have been poorly vetted by a shallow set of qualifications. Ugh. Or, worse, we had to react and deal with whomever ran…

Meanwhile – Paul Chabot, Johnny Tacherra, Chris Mitchum, Tony Amador and to a lesser extent Dan Logue all got left in the lerch and all could have won where their more moderate, more favored counterparts lost.

As of 11/9  – the Placer County Elections Office has Measure B passing with 62.35% of the vote.

This is an absolute landslide. You would think in a conservative county like Placer, that a measure that gives the County Supervisors a 138% pay raise would be stillborn.

Like anything on the ballot – see also Prop 47 that will put tens of thousands of dirtbags back on the streets – its’ mere presence is a threat.

In years’ past – the Placer GOP Central Committee has been a lightening rod and tremendously effective.

In 2008, the Placer GOP defied the establishment and endorsed Tom McClintock over Doug Ose. Tom Hudson was the Chairman at that time.

As a result of said endorsement – Republican electeds like Ted Gaines and Roger Niello both pulled their funding for voter registration bounty – because Central Committees “were not supposed to endorse”. Since that time the local electeds and the Placer  GOP had been at odds until $85k of outside money came in and blew several “Undesireables” out of the Placer GOP in 2012.

I have told the story repeatedly about the chain of events surrounding Doug LaMalfa’s senate campaign, the un proven charges and the idiots in the local tea parties that were recruited in a Jihad against the leadership of the Central Committee, but…

… The other side of the lynching of the Conservatives off of the Placer GOP Central Committee by Ted Gaines, Beth Gaines, Jim Nielsen, Doug LaMalfa and GOP Leadership (funded by Charles Munger at the behest of someone who may or may not have been Connie Conway to avenge Beth Gaines) has now come home to roost.

The majority on the Central Committee are Tea Partiers that are still under the effects of their brainwashing. They vote in lock-step with the do-nothing Moderate Leadership. And, while Dennis Revell was quoted recently talking about how liberal Art Moore is, do not forget, Revell is a social liberal and his closest allies on the Cent Com are open in their hostility towards religious Conservatives.

The Tea Partiers did next to nothing in Placer County. Ed Rowen – who had his character assassinated by Dennis Revell only a few months earlier, led volunteers to walk 35 precincts for Tom McClintock. By himself, Mr. Rowen, the President of the Placer CRA, who was specifically targeted by Dennis Revell and the Tea Partiers on the Placer GOP Cent Com – outperformed the entire Central Committee’s volunteer effort.

However, Beth Gaines, Ted Gaines, Jim Nielsen and Doug LaMalfa in particular needed to make sure that they had their revenge for the PCRA and its’ members not supporting any of them despite the fact that none of them have done a thing for the Placer GOP – in fact, they gutted the Placer GOP Cent Com and did less than nothing for the GOP in Placer County now.

When Jeff Atteberry was told he was done as Cent Com Chairman, he was told that the $40k he had raised as Cent Com Chair was a failure. Please note that had it not been for a golf tournament run by CRA Member Ken Hubert – the Placer GOP Cent Com would have raised negative money and to this day, the dwindling balance in the accounts were left over from the ousted PCRA Leadership.

But Gaines, Gaines, Nielsen and LaMalfa got their revenge. Apparently, in their mind, who cares if the local party is dead as long as people they don’t like are not a part of it?

Meantime – Measure B Passed in a landslide.

You see, the Cent Com Railroaded a no on B position without ever giving the yes side a chance to speak. Tom Hudson and Ken Campbell, arguably the two most Conservative activists in Placer County, both former Cent Com Chairs were the leaders of the No on B campaign. You would think that two men with their influence, backed by an official GOP endorsement in a GOP year would have slain Measure B.

They had no back up from the Cent Com. While the local Tea Parties were furious over the “Pay Raise Thing”, they did next to nothing. This could have been the Placer GOP’s chance to shine. Instead, it exposed the ineptitude of the Placer GOP Cent Com.

The one piece of mail that was sent was basically paid for by Tom McClintock. There were some poorly homemade signs about No on B done independently, there was an email from Tom Hudson and a Robo-Call from Tom Hudson and that was the extent of the No on B campaign.

The Placer GOP Central Committee did no phone banking, walked no precincts and donated nothing to or for local elected candidates. Is this what Gaines, Gaines, LaMalfa and Nielsen wanted?

The Central Committee has become so ineffective that the Vice-Chair of the County Party (Mike Holmes)was defeated for re-election to the Auburn City Council!

The leadership of the GOP have a hard choice to make – reconcile with the people they have disagreed with in the past – or continue to #EPICFAIL. It really isn’t that hard.

However, the GOP leadership have an immediate problem on the Placer GOP. They need to get rid of Dennis Revell. He has failed miserably. His record is as follows:

$2k raised in two years. (Outside of McClintock effort for mailer)

Attacking and alienating the best volunteer in Placer County who single-handedly outperformed the entire Central Committee’s Volunteer Effort.

Inability to muster volunteers. The Placer GOP did no phone-banking and no precinct walking at all in 2014 for the local electeds at all.

The Vice Chair of the Central Committee Losing Re-Election for Auburn City Council.

Not a single dollar contributed to a Placer GOP endorsed candidate while the Dem Cent Com handed out nearly $5k.

Measure B passes with 62+% of the vote despite the heroic efforts of Ken Campbell and Tom Hudson.

The above is the definition of failure.

I am not suggesting that I am the solution. I named my kidney stones after Jim Nielsen and Doug LaMalfa for pete’s sake and worked for Beth and Ted’s primary opponents in 2012! Rather, the immediate answer to the Placer GOP’s leadership problem is within its’ own ranks.

With the humiliation of Mike Holmes and Dennis Revell, Tom Hudson and Ken Campbell could be the exact back to the future that the Placer GOP needs.

The last time GOP registration grew was under Ken Campbell’s tenure. He is a donor to all my favorite partisan electeds. Ken Campbell got it done, the GOP needs him back. Tom Hudson would be excellent as a #2. Tom is #2 material all the way with his knowledge of the CRP apparatus, the bevy of by-laws and campaign finance laws.

Ken Campbell is deep within the national ranks of the Tea Party. If anyone could rally the tea party to get off the overpasses and in to donating money and manning phone banks, it is Ken.

It is time to go back to the future. The Placer GOP should never be in a place again when a grotesque waste of money like measure B passes with the GOP powerless to do anything about it.

All but 2 of the Placer CRA Endorsed Candidates Won Their Elections. All of the recruits by Liberal Democrat Activist Rene Aguilera were defeated soundly.

In Auburn – Matt Spokely and Bridget Powers won a commanding 1-2 victory

In Loomis – Baker, Black and Ucovich won an astounding victory… unseating Liberal Democrat Sandra Calvert in the process.

In Loomis – Mike Edwards beat a democrat challenger by 19% in his school board race.

In Rocklin, CRA endorsed first time candidate Susan Halldin finished first, and CRA Endorsed Wendy Lang and Todd Lowell finished second and third. The first of Rene Aguilera’s recruits for office – William White, finished fourth. White’s presence on the ballot forced the Rocklin Unified School District to spend some $40k to stage the election.

In Roseville – Rene Aguilera forced the Roseville City School District to spend $50k or more putting on an election as he got a last minute filer to put the vote for three race on the ballot. The only Republican, Susan Duane – endorsed by CRA finished first in a landslide.

In the Roseville Joint Union High School District – Rene Aguilera’s Recruits were crushed by Linda Park and Scott Huber. Park and Huber got more than double the votes of their challengers. Park and Huber were endorsed by CRA. Rene Aguilera forced the RJUHSD to spend over $100k on this election as his unfunded recruits mounted little or no campaign, making people wonder why they filed.

In the Roseville City Council – CRA endorsed Susan Rohan scored an astounding 42.3% of the vote in a vote for two race with four candidates on the ballot. Tim Herman finished second at 32.1% and Rene Aguilera despite huge name ID was buried at 18%.

In the Lincoln City Council Race, the CRA only endorsed Stan Nader who almost doubled the vote total of the second place finisher Gabe Hydrick.

In the much talked-about CA-04 Race. CRA-Endorsed Tom McClintock holds a 20+% lead.

While the CRA did not take a position on Measure B – it cruised to victory, commanding 62.35% of the vote. More will be written on that later.

Rene Aguilera was humiliated across the board. He forced districts to spend roughly $200k between them because his recruits who (except for Jay Song) all pulled and filed for office at the last minute. This is a standard tactic of a provocateur.

For the first time in his political life – Aguilera was held accountable for his life and his actions. He has said publicly that he intends to run for Roseville City Council Again in 2016. We will be waiting for him to pull and file on the last day as usual and we will re-start the meat  grinder for him and anyone else we deem that is tied to him.

The CRA was the big winner – look at the number of first-place finishes by our endorsed candidates. You would be hard pressed to find a more effective Republican group in the state!
