Did you know that the “Chairwoman” and her handlers have handed the keys to what’s left of the CAGOP to Kevin Faulconer? Yup, they gave Faulconer the CAGOP’s donor list under the guise of having him chair a fundraising committee. We’ve seen this drill before and it is being run by the same crew that prostituted the CAGOP to Meg Whitman in 2009-2010. My guess is the sudden spate of emails we are seeing from Faulconer are using lists provided to him by the leadership of the CAGOP as well. (More on this soon)
Within the last week Republican “Leadership”, (the same crew that have had nothing to say about the rampage of Assemblyman Bill Brough and the six documented victims of his lifetime of sexual misconduct) have been making calls behind the scenes to put lockboxes on all incumbent Republican Electeds to re-elect CAGOP Chairwoman Jessica Patterson.
Kevin McCarthy wants to control more things, and he needs to keep the pieces of his potemkin village in place. One of those key pieces are the weak leaders of the CAGOP (but, hey they are all women! – that don’t defend women against wayward members), including the Chairwoman who has been dutifully undermining the grassroots and converting the CAGOP in to a shell-PAC for Kevin Faulconer for governor.
Just who is Kevin Faulconer? Take a look at a recent snippet from the SF Chron:
Note the key qualification – Kevin Faulconer is a trump-hater. The insiders running the CAGOP in the ground made a ton of faulty campaign decisions leaving people like Greg Raths and Bryan Maryott hanging because they believed President Trump was toxic. (And two white guys like Raths and Maryott would not do well, whoops)
We’ve all see this before – Meg Whitman (who raised money for Biden)! Except, Kevin Faulconer is Meg Whitman without money.
Consistent with the emerging media drill the oligarchy of controlled failure is running for Kevin Faulconer – is this gem of an article on 12-6-2020:
Climate Kool-Aid is a way of life for Kevin Faulconer. Yes, folks, the trump hating, tree hugging, baby killing, tax-raising, maven of corrupt real estate deals in San Diego is the choice of team McCarthy and your chairwoman. You don’t get to vote. Do what you’re told.
California Governor Gavin Newsom says the state needs massive tax hikes and more regulations to slow economic development and stop global warming.
At least one leading GOP challenger to Newsom, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, actually shares many of his Democrat rivals’ sentiments.
Faulconer, kicking off his campaign as his term as mayor ends this month, is expected to tout San Diego’s “Climate Action Plan,” launched in 2015, among his proudest accomplishments.
That plan — while very popular among San Diego Democrats and environmental activists who supported Faulconer— includes regulatory initiatives paid for with higher taxes and energy prices on employers and consumers.
This guy is going to make Arnold look conservative. Good Lord.
In response to Trump’s move, Faulconer joined San Francisco Mayor London Breed as co-chair of the Sierra Club’s “Mayors for 100 percent Clean Energy” activist group. It sought to encourage all U.S. mayors to ban coal and natural gas power in their cities by 2035.
Perhaps Faulconer will join Breed at the French Laundry for a fundraiser too?
The San Diego Association of Governments regional planning agency known as “SANDAG” is proposing $177 billion in tax hikes towards this end, “transforming” the region away from the automobile over the next three decades. That includes a sales tax increase it hopes to put on the 2022 ballot.
Faulconer is a public supporter of their plan. Last year he said he looked forward to “seeing it come to life.”
Gov. Newsom announced in Sept. that he would “phase out” gasoline-powered cars in California by 2035— an even more ambitious plan than that of Faulconer and SANDAG.
So a Faulconer vs Newsom race will be about who can ban Gas Powered cars the quickest. Perhaps these guys should campaign on horseback, unless they are freaked out by the flatulance.
Thanks, Madam Chairwoman, what do you have for an encore? (As it certainly is not holding Republican losers accountable for abusing women)
