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.

  • Jason Roe, the longtime San Diego-based GOP political consultant who was for years a key strategist for former Mayor Kevin Faulconer, has left his role as the executive director of the Michigan Republican Party, where he has feuded since taking the job with Trump loyalists who took exception to critical comments he made of the former president. (Detroit Free Press)

It looks like Jason Roe has the Faulconer Disease well. According to the following article:

In 2013, Kevin Faulconer ran for Mayor of San Diego—against Nathan Fletcher, the husband of the infamous Assemblywoman Lorena Fletcher—she authored AB 5, to kill California jobs.  During that campaign he noted he started life as a Democrat, then proceeded to run on a Democrat Platform—open borders, amnesty, pro-choice,

In 2016 this is what Kevin Faulconer said to a San Diego TV station, ““I could never vote for Trump,” said Faulconer on Election Night. “His divisive rhetoric is unacceptable and I just could never support him.”

As for being a real Republican, his communications person said this, “After a KPBS profile of Faulconer’s background was published, Manolatos sent an email expressing his displeasure with it for linking Faulconer with the Republican Party.

“If you think Kevin is a conservative, toe-the-line Republican—and it appears you do based on the multiple GOP references and lack of balance—please show me the evidence,” he wrote.

This is the prototypical candidate for the corrupt CAGOP establishment to promote.

Jason Roe worked for Faulconer for years before he and Duane Dichara split their partnership and went their separate ways. My guess is he is headed back to San Diego.

Then there is this about recent Recall entry Ted Gaines: Article here

CURIOUS ADDITION TO CANDIDATES FOR GOVERNOR.

I understand it when rich people have too much money, so they run for Governor.  And< I accept famous people running for Governor, who have no knowledge or experience in California policy, politics or issues, like e Schwarzenegger think being known equates to being a leader.

But Board of Equalization member Ted Gaines, a former Supervisor, Assemblyman and State Senator announced he is running for Governor.  If you never hear of him that is because you do not come from the Placer part of the State.  He has no statewide support, hard time raising money, comes into the race with less than 70 days before the election.  He has no team, has raised no money for the race—and sat on the sidelines while the grassroots statewide got the petitions signed.  I could not find a quote from him asking people to get involved in the Recall—or he actively supported it.

So why get in the race?  Assemblyman Kevin Kiley. Unlike the other candidates, Kiley KNOWS Sacramento policy and politics, has statewide grassroot support, cannot be bought and is building momentum to be the front runner against Faulconer. he took on the Governor in speeches, books and lawsuits–while the others sat back–or were not even paying attention to the Recall, until the volunteers made it happen. Kiley is not parachuting into this race–he has been on the front lines from the beginning.

The goal, it appears is to take votes from Kiley, to help the open borders candidate, Kevin Faulconer.  Divide the conservatives, and help the Schwarzenegger/Whitman wing of the Republican Party.  For someone who has prided himself on being a conservative, this makes no sense.  But, these are the games played. This is why people are disgusted with politics and the Republican Party in California.

In my next HOTT, I will explain how the CRP is skimming money from the REAL Recall, to build staff and finance the Faulconer campaign.  Did you receive TWO snail mail pieces, like I did on Monday from the CRP begging for money, implying the money was going toward the Recall—but instead is going into the General Fund?

It appears I was not alone in my perception of Gaines’ entry. David Stafford Reade has his fingers in everything, with all this stuff to control it is no surprise he still drinks heavily despite getting three DUI in his past. (Reade is Jessica Patterson’s campaign manager and Kevin Faulconer’s “grassroots” coordinator)

Larry Elder, a conservative commentator launched his campaign for governor. He attempted to re-create what Arnold did at the LA County Registrar of Voters Office in Norwalk.

Larry Elder is pictured with Erin Cruz who is a conservative only when it suits her. AS someone who worked for both Steve Frank and Travis Allen I have know that in both cases she voted for Jessica Patterson over those two. IN 2019, she had endorsed Travis Allen and similar to Antonio Sabato rolled over and supported Jessica Patterson thinking it would get her something for a future run. What she thinks is in it for her supporting Elder is beyond me.

Elder had 120 people at his announcement, my source was physically present at the event. The source went on to indicate that half of the people attending appeared to be from the same organization. Arnold had 3,000.

By contrast – let’s take a look at Kevin Kiley:

Kiley had about 400 people at his announcement. My guess is the temperature was around 98 degrees at the time. I based this on looking at the historical weather in Sacramento CA 95814 around the time of the event. It is possible that it was as high as 102. At Elder’s event it was much more temperate.

I have heard various and sundry accounts of the Kiley event including dismissive comments from so-cal people seduced by Elder that Kiley can’t win because he is from the north. Perhaps it is more to do with the alleged star-power of Elder.

Elder has two folks running his campaign Ginny Sands and Lou Barnett. Both were said to have dressed poorly and acted unprofessionally at the event. I was told that only an Orange County politician that showed up and Elder himself were in Suits. The rest of the people campaign people looked like they were at a county fair.

P.S. I’ve been told by several operatives and political insiders that Larry Elder’s Opposition Research File is like Three Mile Island. We shall see what comes out.
