Hi Fred!

Fred Whitaker, the Chairman of the OCGOP sortied out of his bunker recently to attack your intrepid blogger! Rather than address the validity of the expose’ on Janet Nguyen, similar to an email sent by Nguyen’s consultants, it was long on Hyperbole and short on facts. Everything your intrepid blogger has written about Janet Nguyen is true and we will re-affirm that in this installment of the Janet Nguyen Accountability Project. In addition, your intrepid blogger will provide a fact-check on some of the assertions that Mr. Whitaker has made in his recent email.

Second, I have had enough of these nasty, negative hit pieces coming out against our friend Senator Janet Nguyen and now attacking the OCGOP and our bylaws process. Janet is a strong conservative who has not only been a strong voice for us in Sacramento, but she has been a strong and active part of, and supporter of, our Republican candidates and causes all around Orange County. Just ask Diane Dixon, Scott Baugh and the Fab 4 in Huntington Beach. In many respects she has been the ideal legislative partner for the OCGOP.

Nasty is an opinion. Calling Janet Nguyen a Conservative is also an opinion. Saying she has been a strong supporter of ALL of our Republican candidates is a lie. Your intrepid blogger has documented, with evidence three major instances of Nguyen defying the endorsements of the OCGOP. There are screenshots of mailers and even the tape of a robocall in Vietnamese that she did whilst combatting the endorsements of the OCGOP. Why the Chair of the OCGOP sees fit to outright lie on behalf of a candidate is beyond me.

See here for yourself Nguyen endorsing a left-leaning NPP against OCGOP endorsed Laurie Merrick for Garden Grove Council in 2022.

See here for yourself Janet Nguyen endorsing a democrat for Santa Ana Council in 2018 David Penaloza over Miguel Gonzalez and Left-Leaning NPP Mirna Velasquez over Ceci Iglesias.

See here for yourself the robocall in Vietnamese Janet Nguyen cut on behalf of her defiance of the OCGOP.

Evidence that demands a verdict.

The proposed OCGOP By-Laws changes, especially now that Fred Whitaker has come out of the closet for Janet Nguyen look even more suspect. If adopted all Janet has to do is apologize in a letter for endorsing against Laurie Merrick and she won’t even have to answer for what she did in 2018 because the new bylaws only have a 4 year look-back.

Anyone observing OCGOP politics remembers when Todd Spitzer (who I proudly worked for in 2022 to hammer the local newspapers in to submission when they regurgitated complete crap puked out by Soros aligned groups) got the OCGOP By-Laws amended to deal with Tony Rackauckas habit of endorsing democrats. Those amendments were pretty popular then, what changed?

But it seems like every day I am opening up my email and there is another nasty note from paid muckrakers, attacking her in the most vicious way. Now I got what pretends to be an online survey seeking to get my opinions only to find out that it is just another vicious hit on our friend Janet.  I note that this “blogger” is not only paid, but has a history of attacks on fellow Republicans – that same blogger has been paid to attack Jennifer Beal in 2018,  John Moorlach in 2020 and 2021, and myself and the OCGOP in 2021.

Fact Check: I have never been paid to attack Fred Whitaker, he has been collateral damage. (this holds true with the OCGOP as well) I have never been paid to attack Jennifer Beall (note the spelling), and when I did it was two posts in 2022, not 2018. In the case of John Moorlach, sometimes yes, it was paid for and sometimes they were on the house because I love me some Johnny.

It appears that Whitaker is lawyering up the OCGOP trying to use your intrepid blogger to rally support for changing the OCGOP By-Laws to pave the way for endorsing the party-destroying Janet Nguyen. Whitaker does not explain why Jon Fleischman said the following in an email:

But most importantly right now – we need to get a drill going to make sure you still have all of your supporters, and that they will be able to be there Monday night to vote yes on the bylaw change. We can tell your supporters that if the bylaw change goes through it will eliminate with certainty any lingering questions about whether you can be endorsed by the Central Committee.

Perhaps the answer can be explained by the first sentence in the same email:

If they are circulating this stuff to the committee, we should be figuring out how to respond.

Fred Whitaker could have done a far better job responding. So could Nguyen’s campaign as there is no way to decouple Nguyen from the current effort to amend the OCGOP By-Laws.

There is another key difference between your intrepid blogger and Fred Whitaker. I am not a party officer. I am not a club officer. I am an independent operative and I am not using a title to push my positions. Party officers should remain neutral. Fred Whitaker is anything but, and people in Orange County tell me that Fred Whitaker is pushing Kate Monroe in CA49, Crystal Miles in SD37 and Janet Nguyen. All three have the same consultant. Perhaps members of the OCGOP should inquire as to the relationship between that consulting firm and Mr. Whitaker.

Jon Fleischman and that firm have a long-standing relationship, which is why the email I got from him by mistake discussing Janet Nguyen’s strategy and “drill” to amend the OCGOP By-Laws came as no surprise.

When your intrepid blogger calls a candidate a squish or a rino, there is a reason. When I talk about specific issues, I do so with evidence… perhaps this is why the campaign and Mr. Whitaker call me nasty and a liar without contravening evidence.

Straight off of the California Leg Info website is Janet Nguyen voting yes on AB2601. Fred Whitaker and Jon Fleischman need to do a better job of research. You can read all about AB2601 here including detailed information from Live-Action, a right-leaning parent’s rights/education group.

And Janet Nguyen endorses democrats. How vicious it is of your intrepid blogger to point these facts out!

It is worth noting that Janet has not stooped down to this level — all of her communications to the committee have been positive, talking about her accomplishments, her goals, and sharing her extensive endorsement list. It’s also worth noting that she does not even have an application for endorsement in front of the committee.

Fred lied again. Nguyen’s crew has attacked your intrepid blogger. (including Whitaker) The spin on her application for endorsement is fascinating as she withdrew it in a cloud over her non-Republican endorsements precipitating the effort to amend the by-laws. If the by-law change was not tied to endorsing Janet Nguyen, she’d have told the committee she was going to wait until after the primary before trying again and/or the OCGOP would wait until after the primary to amend the by-laws as the only current applicant that would be affected by the proposed by-law changes is Janet Nguyen. 

That’s correct – filter through everything and ask yourself why is the OCGOP trying to change their by-laws in the middle of a campaign election cycle? Who benefits from said endorsement change? It’s Janet Nguyen.

The OCGOP is prepared to allow would-be endorsers to endorse democrats as long as it was 4 years ago and allow endorsements of NPP’s with a nice letter that the same people considering the endorsement have to “approve”. The OCGOP is about to make their endorsement meaningless on behalf of someone who has been on a rampage against Republican Candidates for Orange County offices since 2018… and I will leave you with the below excerpt from my first “vicious” post about Nguyen when she trashed Trump and immigration enforcement:

In 2017, Janet joined with Democrats to condemn President Trump’s immigration enforcement

See it here. My Favorite Parts are below:

WHEREAS, The Trump administration has justified its vast expansion of those targeted for deportation by falsely portraying the United States as a country under siege by a flood of undocumented immigrants who threaten public safety, giving rise to anti-immigrant fervor and a nativist desire to preserve our nation’s historically dominant Euro-Christian culture; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate of the State of California, That the Senate calls upon President Trump and Secretary Kelly to publicly and explicitly reaffirm the principles and content of the ICE policy memorandum dated October 24, 2011, regarding enforcement actions at or focused on sensitive locations; and be it further
Resolved, That the Senate calls upon Secretary Kelly to underscore to the public and to all United States Department of Homeland Security personnel that the policy on sensitive locations is not limited to enforcement at the sensitive location, but also to enforcement focused on sensitive locations, and that in other words, waiting across the street from a church or school for people to emerge from the sensitive location violates the policy as much as entering the location itself, as does following someone away from a press conference or other sensitive location so as to detain them; and be it further
Resolved, That the Senate calls upon Secretary Kelly to take affirmative steps, including public commitment to the sensitive locations policy, staff training, investigation or reports of past and future violations of the policy, including, but not limited to, investigating the incidents detailed in this resolution, and pursuing disciplinary action against personnel found to have violated the policy; and be it further
Resolved, That the Secretary of the Senate transmit copies of this resolution to the President and Vice President of the United States, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, the Majority Leader of the United States Senate, the Minority Leader of the United States Senate, and to each Senator and Representative from California in the Congress of the United States.
Basically, Janet Nguyen voted yes on a resolution attacking White people and the Trump administration policy of raiding illegal sanctuaries for illegal aliens. Great Job Janet Nguyen.

Gene James seems to be cancer that is metastasizing. I have been told by people in Orange County that he has been bragging that he “Won” his defamation lawsuit over the false mailers sent on his behalf in the 2020 election.

Gene James lied. (I know you are shocked to learn this given his pattern) In fact, your intrepid blogger has learned that the lawsuit was dropped, and I believe it was dropped because Gene James is broke (as he always is – see also BK’s, Judgements, etc… that we wrote about previously).

Gene James lied in his deposition in said lawsuit. He also looks miserable, and he deserves to be given his conduct.

Gene James was trapped by effective lawyering and was forced to admit that he wore medals he never earned after lying about them. He also lied about where his DD-214 is and whether or not he has one. (The DD-214 would show that James was regular army and not airborne. It would also show what medals if any, he had earned).

Your intrepid blogger hopes Gene James will finally get prosecuted for Stolen Valor, given that this Deposition has been released post-lawsuit dismissal.

Now, back to the lawsuit. Your intrepid blogger has obtained yet more public records about Gene James. Gene James got a traffic ticket (I am sure you are shocked), and was he driving the late model pickup with custom plates? (Remember the pickup he backed up to the homeless tents to blow exhaust into them?)

You can fill out an app to get your bail (aka fine) paid in installments. Mr. James did precisely that; apparently, the traffic court just takes his word.

That’s an awfully nice truck for someone that can’t pay a $501 traffic ticket!

Please look at the actual form that Gene James filed with the court. Did James lie? Or is he broke? My guess is that the lawsuit against him was dropped because the person suing him would have never been able to collect a judgment against James, regardless of either possibility.

This gets me to the plot against Fred Whitaker, the sitting Chairman of the OCGOP. Naturally, Bill Brough has been enabled by people in the Orange County establishment to have some sort of return. I am not 100% sure what Brough’s actual job is now, but he was hired by some outfit to do government stuff. Gene James believes that he is as innocent as the wind-driven snow (like Brough) and that every bad thing that has beset him comes from the OCGOP. (Absurd as it is) Of course, Bill Brough wants revenge too.

It has been put to me that someone else, who may or may not be Bryan Maryott, has joined with the above two. This three-headed hydra of Republican debris is attempting to rise up from the morass of ethical and moral failure to take out Fred Whitaker. They have help, and as I get solid evidence, I will begin publishing the names of others involved.

I have written many times about the fealty to the status quo and the lack of political courage in Orange County… anyone morally bankrupt enough or consumed by a personal desire to retaliate against Fred Whitaker with or on behalf of Gene James and Bill Brough may as well be as bad as your intrepid blogger has proven they (Bill and Gene) are.

I have no doubt why the once Red Titan is now a bluish-purple mess.

Fred Whitaker did the right thing with Bill Brough and deserves to be defended for it. It also appears that he and the leadership of the OCGOP have taken a similar stance against Gene James. Good for them.

So, some nutjob (that’s what I think of James) and a proven liar (make a list) who can’t pay a $501 traffic ticket is on a rampage to take out the sitting Chairman of the OCGOP aided and abetted by a disgraced former Assemblyman and a jilted loser for Congress.

But wait, there’s more…

Jun 152021

That’s right! the power elite that got away with cheating in February because dozens of Steve Frank supporters chose not to register to pay $175 to vote in the party elections are back for their pound of flesh. How did they cheat?

The LAGOP blatantly violated their by-laws by inserting 22 people in to vacant districts without a publicly noticed vote as called for in the CAGOP By-Laws.

Jessica Patterson appointed several people to the proxies and credentials committee whose own status was challenged – clearly intended to show her authoritah – but also a blatant violation of Robert’s Rules. In addition, Yuba County, Glenn County and Tehama County were all allowed to field a total of 15 illegal delegates (All hand-picked for their loyalty to the regime)

These 37 illegal delegates are going to be critical to the latest attempt to jam down an endorsement of Kevin Faulconer. In fact, three paid political consultants are on the proxies and credentials committee. That is like giving Jesse James the keys to the bank.

In Feb We stopped their rule 5, even getting media coverage of the effort. Also we succeeded in electing two true activists to the CAGOP Board – and Jessica Patterson is angry and has been singling them both out for scorn and retribution.

Finally, we burned them for a dishonest attempt to spin a $200K check from the RNC – intended for expenses and salaries that they attempted to spin in to some sort of boon for the recall – in to actually spending the dammed money on the recall.

Do not forget that these folks actually OPPOSED the recall up until late 2020 when they finally realized it was getting legs.

Now the consultant class is coming for the CAGOP endorsement they thought they had rigged in Feb. Don’t think they won’t fight dirty. In fact, they called the FBI on your intrepid blogger. We’ve proven the cheating and the blatant flaunting of the unethical and corrupt behavior.

What is rule 4? Have a look at it. This is the money section:

If no Eligible Candidate receives the endorsement vote of more than 50 percent of those present and voting in the Final Vote, then no Eligible Candidate shall receive the CRP Endorsement for that office prior to the Recall Election.

Got it? The threshold is being lowered to 50% – so the fraud that Jessica Patterson and Team McCarthy perpetrated is a big deal.

Don’t forget – The CRP’s Staff admitted to me in the days before they called the FBI on me that they do not follow up on paperwork. This is how a moribund committee like Santa Cruz County was able to inflate their delegation to 8 members. There are other counties in the grip of the consultant class with similar grotesque exaggerations of their committee’s prowess.

Yuba County filed for 6 delegates for example despite the fact that they violated state law by not organizing. The stench from Yuba got so bad that Stephen Heter who screamed like a banshee about persecution resigned and real activists are now being welcomed on to that county party. But, don’t worry, the delegates from Yuba won’t change. Cha-Ching, 6 votes for Faulconer.

There is no telling how many county parties outright lied or exaggerated to get an extra delegate or two. I had estimated the total of garbage delegates to be about 15. Now we are over 52 questionable delegates. Consider that 1150 votes were cast, that 52 delegate number is a staggering 4.5% of the total. It pays to cheat.

It gets better – the Party of election integrity is also wanting to adopt the following:

If remote electronic voting is permitted during the CRP Endorsement Meeting, so long as notice of the voting procedure is included in the meeting notice, the Chairman may determine that proxy voting will not be permitted

Got it? Electronic voting is going to be used to jam down an endorsement of Faulconer by the California Republican Party… and if you think Proxy Voting is not going to be allowed, think again. We all know that Jessica Patterson is chemically dependent upon proxy voting. (As is Kevin McCarthy et al)

Welcome to Rule 4.

By the way – they are targeting 7-31 to implement this rule and likely 8-1-2021 to ran down the endorsement of Kevin Faulconer.

As I type this leftist Republican Donors are pouring money in to independent expenditures to prop up their puppet. The power is coming down and here we are again. Millions in campaign cash from unprincipled donors looking for a return on investment and a party apparatus that has been proven to be corrupt at its’ core.

P.S. Guess who wrote this disaster? None other than Fred Whitaker, the OC GOP Chairman. I also take note that Lindsey Stetson – a Jessica Patterson doppelganger is the “Recall Committee Chair”. That is like appointing Mitt Romney (or Patterson herself) to the Trump Re-Election Committee.

Did I mention that I really like living in Nevada now?

Disclosure: I was a paid consultant for John Cox in the past (no longer). I have also endorsed Assemblyman Kevin Kiley for Governor.

It is amazing really to see the parallels between Diane Harkey and John Moorlach.

In the aftermath of the election there is no ownership or personal responsibility. I received an email from the OCGOP via several people that shows Fred Whitaker is from the same camp. I did not even have a chance to highlight the effective, yet vain effort that the OCGOP put on (with $30K of Fred’s own money) to save Moorlach. It is pretty much impossible to complement anything Fred Whitaker and the OCGOP did as the ego is pre-eminent.

Whitaker doubled down (as did Moorlach) effectively calling the opponents of Moorlach’s liars.

Whitaker and Moorlach also projected blame for Moorlach’s defeat on others. In Fred’s mind, everyone should have listened to him and not run. There are two flaws in Whitaker’s logic, beyond the decision to move heaven and earth for Moorlach, the assumption that all of Vo and Muldoon’s voters would have chosen Moorlach, and the second flaw is covering up the underperformance of Republican voters in that district.

Honest brokers would realize that Moorlach likely loses a head-to-head matchup as voters disgusted with Moorlach would have either taken the democrat or left the universe. Both dynamics would erase the slim margin of total Republican votes. Take a look at the underperformance of Republican voters in this election to understand fully what is happening.

Consistently from the beginning, the issue with John Moorlach was the moral failure related to his Chief of Staff in the Senate covering up a rape by Bill Brough (who owed him $45k at the time) and Moorlach being so disconnected from his staff that he knew nothing. Yet the hysterical defense of comparing Moorlach to Brett Kavanaugh ruled the day.

Moorlach and Whitaker got caught smearing the rape victim – and Whitaker did it again in his summary email. Talk about tone-deaf and wondering why Women abandon the GOP so quickly?

Moorlach’s career in politics is also fraught with blatant hypocrisy that would have been enough to wreck him long before the rape of a staffer he later smeared came to light.

Diane Harkey shares all of these attributes (with different circumstances of course), based on my research. This time, however, in order to help save the OCGOP and others from themselves I am way out ahead of this. Perhaps Harkey can take responsibility unlike Moorlach and save herself the same fate.

Diane Harkey and John Moorlach are retreads

Diane Harkey and John Moorlach are beset with scandals made worse by their personal conduct

Diane Harkey and John Moorlach are career politicians

Diane Harkey and John Moorlach have consistently played the victim when challenged with their moral failures

Diane Harkey and John Moorlach are both darlings of the OCGOP establishment who do all the establishment things to promote them.

As we continue rolling out our research on Diane Harkey – the push-back is going to be predictible. The most incorrigible will make it about me. Most will just try to hide and avoid conflict. The few smart ones will read and digest the info.

I don’t care who the Chairman of the OCGOP is. What I do care about is teeing up another flawed fossil of OCGOP politics with more baggage than a 747 and watching her lose her second major race in 4 yearss.

Trish Todd, who was raped by Bill Brough while working for John Moorlach is the real victim here.

She was victimized by Lisa Bartlett whose disclosure of her incident with Bill Brough touched off a series of events that led to Trish coming out in public. Despite the common nexus, Bartlett endorsed Moorlach – making people ask the question if her disclosure was motivated by the spectre of having a race with Bill Brough for her next office (State Senate).

Trish was victimized by Tim Clark (Moorlach’s Chief of Staff and long time campaign consultant) who covered up the rape.

Trish was victimized by the OCGOP who stubbornly continue to attack her because of their own imbalanced egos.

Trish Todd was also victimized by John Moorlach.

The OCGOP leadership and the cocktail party circuit don’t care and now they are short a supervisor… soon to be two as they learned nothing about foisting a flawed candidate on the electorate.

We warned you about John Moorlach months, even years ago. Now we are warning you about Diane Harkey – read with an open mind or else the democrats will take over the OC Board of Supervisors.

There is a final point to make here. The OCGOP’s influence is dead. They no longer can determine the outcome of a race anymore. Since Diane Harkey blamed Darrell Issa for all of her maladies in 2018, the OCGOP can expect to be treated the same if Harkey loses in 2022. Mrs. Harkey ought to take a good close look at just how much the OCGOP can bring to the table and temper her expectations instead of allowing herself to get in to the same trap she did when she projected the impossible on to Darrell Issa.

I am glad John Moorlach is gone. I am not glad Katrina Foley won. However, my fear, that is grounded in reality is that history is set to repeat itself in 2022. You will see more detail soon.

Feb 112021

Living rent-free in Fred Whitaker’s head. Yes, we are at right on daily. One guaranteed way to get your ass kicked by right on daily is ignore and demean female victims of abuse. Another guaranteed way is backroom political deals. Fred checks these and so many other boxes.

Enjoy the comments on the OCGOP’s latest post about John Moorlach. Whoops.

As we’ve written several times – Trish Todd worked for John Moorlach when she was raped by Bill Brough.

Brough’s then Chief of Staff Tim Clark covered up the rape. Clark is still working with/for John Moorlach today as a campaign manager/consultant/advisor.

In 2014, Clark ran Bill Brough’s campaign for assembly. Brough raped Trish Todd in July of 2015. Clark was paid the rest of the money Brough owed him – some $44,000 in October of 2015.

John Moorlach claims to have never known about the rape – but was told about in August of 2020 and was forced to admit knowledge of it while blaming Right on Daily for ignoring the news.

John Moorlach smeared Trish Todd as a “disgruntled employee” and “not his best hire”. Fred Whitaker went a step further calling the allegations false and libel.

Right on Daily has posted photos of a Senate Proclamation prasing Mrs. Todd for her service and another letter signed by Moorlach talking about what a good employee she was and requesting a raise for her.

Fred Whitaker has had a terrible record dealing with victims of sexual misconduct. He attempted to stifle public notice of Lisa Bartlett’s disclosure of her abuse at the hands of Bill Brough some years earlier. The Right on Daily Blog broke the news and forced Fred Whitaker to have to deal with the issue against his will.

Now, John Moorlach is being held accountable for his moral failing. In particular, why was he so distant from his staff that his Chief of Staff could cover up the rape of one of his staff. Moorlach lied about foreknowledge of the public disclosure of the rape in November 2020. Moorlach lied about the victim, Tish Todd, smearing her along with Fred Whitaker. Moorlach is still employing / is affiliated with Tim Clark who covered up the rape.

Fred Whitaker is the Chairman of the OCGOP. He has been known for abusing his influence to rig party endorsements and doing closed door deals. This is how he got onto the Right on Daily radar screen. While disrepsecting and attacking female victims of Bill Brough’s actions and John Moorlach’s indifference – he is also promoting the Chairwoman of the CAGOP who has had nothing to say about Bill Brough, Mike Madrid (a co-founder of the Lincoln Project who was a delegate to the CAGOP) and a host of other problems within the CAGOP. (So much for women leaders meaning something – as pat Bates still defends Brough and Marie Waldron ran intereference for him for about 6 months before finally backing off)

Unfortunately for Fred Whitaker, John Moorlach and Tim Clark – Trish Todd has been a friend of my wife’s since 2013. This is indeed a mission to get justice for Trish Todd regardless of the egos of political people involved.

One example of Fred Whitaker on tilt would be the near hysterical email attacking Michael Vo and Kevin Muldoon – two other republican candidates for supervisor.

Now Whitaker has put $30,000 of his own money in to the OCGOP. Why? If Moorlach loses, Fred Whitaker’s credibility is shot. In my opinion, it is now. He also has been using his donor’s money to have his executive director call for proxies in Orange County on behalf of the failed Chairwoman as well.

I got in to the wrong country club. It must be nice to rage spend $30K on a candidate!

I have been told that the OCGOP is going to send “Member Communications” attacking Kevin Muldoon in particular because how dare he run against the wishes of the party bosses. They have decreed that a career politician that was so disconnected from his staff and reality that one of them was raped and he did not know about it for five years while continuing to employ the man that covered up the rape!

What other behavior are these guys tolerating?

P.S. Please note that I am stating things as fact regarding Trish Todd because I have seen the evidence and talked to the victim herself many times. I believe her account 100% therefore I am stating the accounts and evidence backing up the accounts as fact.
