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.

#CA07 Update: The Fraud Doctor Setting Up 2016 Rematch With More Lies

 CA-07 Race, Doug Ose  Comments Off on #CA07 Update: The Fraud Doctor Setting Up 2016 Rematch With More Lies
Nov 082014

When you’re a democrat, you never EVER acknowledge the reasons for your electoral defeat.

In 2012, when Romney lost a race he should have won – the pundits came out in force, but the GOP leadership figured out quickly what went wrong and took steps to fix the issues. The results on 11/4/2014 bear it out.

Then there is Ami Bera – his campaign people are screaming racism, claiming that Ose’s people are purposely challenging Woman or Latino Ballots. Of Course, in the process of trying to create this lie, they omit that it is impossible to see names on ballots from a distance. They also omit that 90% of the challenges are automatic per statute and are not subjective.

When you’re a a whore with a worn-out playbook, you’re stuck. Demagogue the Uteris, Demagogue Race in the absence of issues. It backfired spectacularly – for US Senator Mark Udall, his whoring out the Abortion Issue got so bad that the flaming communists at the Denver Post called him “Senator Uteris” and endorsed his Republican opponent (who is a pro-life Christian). Republicans only lost women by a slim margin nationally.

However, the fraud doctor and the idiots on his staff missed the memo. Republicans won Asians 50-49 after scoring only 27% in 2012. The Latino Vote went from 27-36% as well.

Still the kool-aid drinking cylon-robots on the Fraud Doctors’ staff are telling the world they think they have lost. The following is from Doug Ose’s campaign chief:

As we head into the week after Election Day, we are still in the process of verifying and counting ballots.  As supporters of Doug Ose’s campaign, you have been a critical reason why Doug is in such a strong position. Our success has put Congressman Bera in a very difficult position, so much so that his campaign is becoming more shrill by the day.  Why has the Bera campaign become so shrill? It’s simple: Congressman Bera, one of President Obama’s foot soldiers whose support for policies was soundly rejected on Election Day, is on the verge of losing his job.

Here is what we know and why Congressman Bera is desperate:

  • Doug Ose leads Incumbent Congressman Ami Bera in the race for CA-07 by 2,183 votes.
  • The Sacramento County Registrar of Voters estimates about 79,000 ballots remain in Sacramento County (70,000 of which are vote by mail ballots and 9,000 are provisional ballots). The campaign estimates about 65% of those ballots will fall in CA-07, which means that there are about 50,000 ballots still to be counted.
  • The Ose campaign only needs to receive 48% of the remaining vote to win this seat outright. Thus far, Doug has received 49.1% of the absentee ballot vote to date and won Election Day voters by six points.

Activities at the Sacramento County Registrar of Voters

On Wednesday (11/5) morning at 8am, the Ose campaign had four election observers at the Sacramento County Registrar of Voters office. The Assistant Registrar, Alice Jarboe, explained to the Ose campaign the rules and guidelines to participate as official election observers. Nowhere to be found was Congressman Bera’s campaign – they missed the entire day.

(This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone – this is true to form for Congressman Bera. While Bera was in Congress, time and time again he skipped out on his own small business workshops and drought workshops in the district.)

Forty-eight hours after Election Day, the Bera campaign and surrogates decided to show up and make outlandish and baseless accusations. Their strategy of throwing anything and everything against the wall in the hopes it sticks is the absolute lowest point in their campaign of desperation.

Why stoop so low?

The Bera campaign wants to set up the notion that this was not a fair election and that it was stolen from them. Bera is attempting to establish the narrative that ballots are being wrongfully discarded. This claim is absurd and it’s an insult to the professionalism of the Registrar’s office and the people of Sacramento County.

The county office is following the state’s election law and established local procedures. They have done an excellent job of carefully reviewing every ballot cast to ensure all legal votes are counted. Validating signatures is important to ensure the election is fair. For Congressman Bera that’s not good enough. He wants ballots that don’t meet legal criteria – a matching signature – to be counted. His campaign is attempting to bully the Registrar in a desperate attempt to hold on to power. Doug Ose will not stand by as Congressman Bera and his Washington, D.C. allies attempt to wage an intimidation campaign. We have no problem taking our message directly to the voters once again.

What is really going on?

What will happen when the vote goes final and Congressman Bera loses this election? He’ll launch an election campaign for 2016 and use this “social injustice” as his platform.

I am sure the Bera campaign will say all of these claims are fanciful.

We shall see.

#CA07 Update – Endorsement of Doug Ose for Congress

 CA-07 Race, Doug Ose  Comments Off on #CA07 Update – Endorsement of Doug Ose for Congress
Oct 192014

Many of you who read this blog know that I have been outspoken in my criticism of Doug Ose. Even though California has a so-called top-two jungle primary, it is still a primary. In most districts, that process still yields two candidates, one from the GOP and one from the Dems.

I needed some reasons to reconcile to Doug Ose after he won the primary.

Doug Ose changed that dynamic when he reached out to CRA in an attempt to see if he could A, get our support and B, attempt to give us a reason to set aside some of our ideological differences in an attempt to do that.

The mere fact that Ose was interested was a stark change from the past. The Doug Ose I was told about was hostile to Conservatives and would never be interested in reaching out to Conservatives…

… yet here we were at a shooting range in the extreme eastern end of Sacramento County – far from the urban bustle that defines the #CA07 Race.

I had been told and the evidence I had told me that Ose was hostile to gun owners, yet here was Doug Ose at a shooting range with a bunch of social conservatives.

There are many other Republicans to the right of Doug Ose who refuse to interact with CRA because they continue to harbor a grudge over past primary fights and disagreements.

Doug Ose stood in front of the gathered and skeptical CRA delegates and told us the truth about where he was aligned and not aligned with CRA. Due in no small part to Ose facing the music so-to-speak, he was endorsed as all gathered agreed that in this case, CRA and Ose needed to come together.

Oh yeah – Doug Ose and I have our disagreements ideologically. But I live in the 48-28 GOP Registration Advantaged 4th Congressional District that is 62% Pro-Life. That isn’t the 7th.

My friend and fellow CRA officer Carl Brickey landed a job working for the California Republican Party and has been spending most of his time at the Doug Ose Headquarters. He encouraged me to come down and pitch in.

I went to Doug Ose’s campaign office yesterday, more to help Carl, a friend of many years in politics. While there, I had a chance to interact with Doug Ose.

It is very hard to see through the fog of war to understand the character of someone you have some significant ideological differences with.

Yet, here was Doug Ose telling me that he had to go to Gibson Ranch to make payroll before heading off to some more events. Here was Doug Ose, Doug Haaland and I talking about real life issues.

Then it hit me. This is the main reason why I could feel comfortable publicly endorsing Doug Ose – two of the very things I despise about most in partisan political office seem to not be present in Mr. Ose. Doug Ose is a real dude, versus being a product of the political apparatus and two, Ose appears to lack the self-serving narcissism that has infected a generation of term-limit babies that are in office now that do nothing but plan their next run for office.

As someone who is a battle-hardened warrior with 17 years of experience in this game, I generally treat candidates with suspicion and disdain while maintaining a polite and engaging exterior.

Doug Ose was himself yesterday at his office and I got a chance to see him for who he really is. I can trust that man to do the right thing despite the fact that I think he is wrong on some issues.

However, his character as I have seen, is why I would encourage anyone else on the right like myself to do anything and everything you can to help elect this guy.
