Ami Bera released a new ad touting his support for “No Budget, No Pay.” However, Bera didn’t vote for a single budget last spring or earlier this year, despite having 12 budgets to choose from.

When will Ami Bera give back his taxpayer-funded salary for breaking his promise to support a budget?

It’s deceitful for Ami Bera to support ‘No Budget, No Pay’ legislation when he refused to support every budget this year. Ami Bera should immediately forfeit his taxpayer-funded salary for breaking his promise to his constituents.

#CA07: Fraud Doctor Update: When Feeling Vulnerable, Swing Wide Left

Karen Bass. Yup, she is coming out to tell women that women’s rights are all about abortion. I take note that the far left never talk about rape, abuse, mutilation in the middle east, just abortion. Then, they hammer the issue while Republicans either go Todd Akin or they run and hide like cowards.


Today is International Women’s Day – a time to make vital progress on women’s rights around the world.

In honor of this day, I co-hosted a congressional briefing with my colleague Congresswoman Karen Bass and Planned Parenthood earlier this week on the importance of international family planning – a key aspect of women’s equality.

As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee I’m proud to have worked with Rep. Bass to shine a light on issues of concern to women around the world including maternal health, violence against women, and gender discrimination.

Though we have come a long way in this struggle in the U.S., we’re not finished yet. Right here at home, women are still paid less than men for doing the same work, reproductive rights are still being challenged and attacked far too often, and many women lack access to basic health care.

(Bera supported Obamacare and even helped shut the government down over it. Now that people are losing insurance by the millions, he is trying to make people believe he opposes it now.) 

As a son, husband, and father of a daughter, I have spent my life surrounded by strong women. Fighting for women and families is a deeply personal issue for me.

When women are treated fairly in the workplace and are paid equally for equal work, families and our economy are better off. 

That’s why I’m supporting the When Women Succeed, America Succeeds economic agenda in Congress. This agenda is designed to help ensure women and families everywhere are given a fair shake.

A key piece of this agenda is the Paycheck Fairness Act – a bill that strengthens protections for working women by providing incentives for equal pay for equal work and banning retaliation against workers who expose discriminatory pay gaps. (this bill is a lawyer’s dream – it set’s arbitrary and nebulous standards and will only drive up the cost of doing business)

The When Women Succeed, America Succeeds economic agenda is crucial to helping women and families everywhere achieve economic security and peace of mind.

Listening to you is my most important job, and I hope to see you next Saturday.

The Fraud Doctor is getting desperate – he is pushing Abortion on Demand to solidify his base and attempting to perpetrate the war on women lie. If anyone has contributed, it is the fraud doctor with his job-killing votes that have left millions of women unemployed and his support of obamacare that has left millions uninsured. But, in his mind, pimp abortion and everything will be ok.

Doug Ose? He is as pro-choice as Ami Bera is!

Congressional Fundraising Numbers In California – Mixed

Feb 032014

Dan Logue Vs John Garamendi – Logue has a net $125k and Garamendi has a net 215K.

The fact it is that close should have the DCCC in a tailspin. At +9 dem, this should be a hold for the dems. Garamendi from what I am told is not as popular as he should be in that district.

Or, maybe he’s lazy.

in CD-07 – the Fraud Doctor is sitting on $800k+. When you’re the number one target, it is easy to get the kool-aid drinkers out there.

Doug Ose’s report is lackluster and is quite a bit lower than I and others had expected. We expected him to be in the 750k range.  Ose did the usual paper $250k thing to inflate his number – but the net $230k on hand tells the whole story.

Igor Birman sits with a net $106k on hand.

The closeness of Birman to Ose is going to draw fire from the heavy-hitting IE groups in my opinon.

A Review of Ose’s reports shows that he has gone to a lot of his low-hanging fruit. A lot of the donors read like a who’s who of beneficiaries from his votes in Congress.

Elizabeth Emken is sitting on -6k net.

Moderate Republicans Jeff Denham and David Valadao look to be doing just fine in their upside down districts.

Tony Strickland is carrying the $400k he raised for CA26 in to CA25. Buck McKeon was hoping to pick his successor.

In CA26, neither Republican has a whole lot of money for a dem seat. Liberal Republican Jeff Gorrell has $100k in the bank.

in CA45 – I am wondering why Greg Raths and John Moorlach are running. Mimi Walters is burying both of them in money on hand, by over 11 to 1 in both cases.

Gary Miller in CA31 has a warchest

Raul Ruiz has a warchest to defend against Moderate Republican challenger Brian Nestande. This is the seat lost by liberal Republican Mary Bono-Mack.

The most bizarre info of all – is CA-09. Tony Amador who announced with much fanfare has $1200.


#CA-07 Update, Want to Know Why Ose is Whining? Two More Top Conservative Congressman Pick Birman

When you hear candidates complain about support from outside, that is a keyword… they are worried that the National appeal of their opponent spells trouble for them.

Of course Ose was part of a Nationwide Group that promoted “Republicans” like McCain and Specter.

Leading House Republicans Jordan and Mulvaney Endorse Birman for Congress

Two conservative leaders in the battle against high taxes and big government issued a call today for voters to send Igor Birman to Congress and join them in the fight for conservative values.

“Igor Birman is a true champion of limited government. I have no doubt that he will be a leader in Congress in the never-ending fight to reduce the size and cost of the federal government and stop the out-of-control borrowing that threatens our future,” said Former Chairman of the Republican Study Committee Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH.

“It’s clear that we need more leaders like Igor Birman in Congress,” said Mick Mulvaney, R-SC. “Leaders who have the courage and commitment to fix the very real issues our country faces today: overspending, out-of-control borrowing, and a federal government that gets bigger and more intrusive with every passing day.  I know that Igor Birman will take these issues head-on in Congress.  Igor is the right choice for Congress and I strongly endorse him.”

Igor Birman, candidate for congress in California’s 7th Congressional District, embraced Jordan’s and Mulvaney’s endorsements. “I’m very honored to have the support of Congressman Jim Jordan and Congressman Mick Mulvaney. Both of them exemplify what’s right about Congress.  I admire their principled leadership in solving the nation’s debt problem, protecting taxpayers and eliminating wasteful spending.  When I am elected to Congress, I will stand with them proudly.”


About Jim Jordan

Jim Jordan has been a prominent defender of the taxpayer’s pocketbook through his work on spending issues. In 2009, he introduced the only balanced budget alternative to President Obama’s budget. In the 112th Congress, Jordan served as Chairman of the House Republican Study Committee, the largest caucus of conservatives, advancing conservative ideas and solutions on Capitol Hill.

About Mick Mulvaney

Mick Mulvaney focuses on jobs, business, and the economy. He currently serves on the House Financial Services Committee as well as the House Small Business Committee.

I snipped off the tag. But, you all get the gist. One candidate is emerging from the pack as the Republican in the #CA-07 Race.

… likely because they know Doug Ose is a gun-grabber as well as Igor Birman having a strong campaign. (More on that later)

Major Pro-Second Amendment Group Endorses Igor Birman for Congress

Igor Birman has received the endorsement of the National Association for Gun Rights PAC with more than 3 million members and supporters across the nation.

“I believe that Igor, who has seen first-hand how precarious our liberties can be, will be a strong, clear voice for defending not just our Second Amendment rights, but all of our God-given rights,” stated Lucius O’Dell, director of political affairs for NAGR-PC.

“Freedom is very personal to me,” said Igor Birman.  “That’s why I am honored to have the support of NAGR.  I look forward to working with them to champion liberty over the forces of bigger and more intrusive government.”

About Igor Birman

Igor Birman was born in the Soviet Union and learned at a young age what it means to live in a society that suppresses freedom.  That experience has driven him to be an ardent and dedicated advocate for preserving freedom as the cornerstone of American public policy.

Igor Birman came to the United States as a refugee in 1994 and grew up in California.  He refers to becoming a U.S. Citizen at the age of 19 as the proudest moment of his life.  He is a graduate of UC Davis with a BA in Political Science and holds a Doctor of Law degree from Emory University.  He is a member of the California Bar.

In 2009, he was asked by Congressman Tom McClintock to serve as his Chief of Staff.  In that role, Igor served as Congressman McClintock’s senior policy and strategy advisor, responsible for both Washington, DC and district offices, before recently taking a leave of absence to run for Congress.

Igor resides in Rancho Cordova.  In his spare time, Igor is an instrument-rated private pilot and avid skier.
