The best way to describe the California Republican Party is it is the Party that CHECKS THE BOXES.  That does not mean they do anything, they talk about, raise money for it, but their lack of action is so loud we do not hear a word they say.  When you have little children you want to feed them right.  You serve them vegetables with almost every dinner.  You know they won’t eat it—but you serve it just in case they might.  The same with the CRP.

They talk a great game about voter registration—even have $50,000, for the whole State in the budget for it.  Except for September, 2019, the CRP has done nothing about voter registration—have you heard anything about a real registration drive from the CRP?

Then you have election integrity.  For a while they were raising money for honest elections.  In fact they did receive over 1,000 incident reports from the Recall election—and they categorized them—in a file.  But, they have done nothing to stop the 440,000 live ballots sent to dead people and those living in other States.  In Michigan they have the same problem, in fact they found 341 people registered to vote AFTER they died!  That was among the 25,000 dead people they have on their voting rolls.  What happened to the mone donated  to get honest elections (I do not have to remind you that the CRP has at least seven people getting $150,000 a year or more—with the Chair, Patterson receiving a quarter of a million dollars a year).

Then they checked the box on “helping the Recall”.  Remember they told you the money was going for staff and offices.  Well, they never opened a single office—but did hire a total of seven staffers statewide—two for the Gallagher Assembly District.  Oh, the Democrats per the CRP, hire 600 staffers to protect (I do not have to remind you that the CRP has at least seven people getting $150,000 a year or more—with the Chair, Patterson receiving a quarter of a million dollars a year).

Pretend conventions:  For those that attend conventions, in person, you pay hotel and travel bills, foo bills, registration fees.  Yet, when it comes to voting, you get outvoted by ghosts—people who do no show up, many never show up, pay nothing, give their proxy to a group—and then wonder why the CRP is in such bad shape.  The proxies outove the people who care enough to show up.


  1. It is not only San Fran that has uncontrolled looting by mobs, gangs and radicals.  It has hit Walnut Creek, San Jose and Beverly Hills.  California is a war zone—and the cops are unable, or in the case of San Fran, unwilling, to stop the carnage—which is why small businesses are leaving the State.

Packs of thieves hit Walnut Creek store, Hayward mall.

A person has caught Omicron Covid inside a quarantine hotel in Hong Kong from a guest across the hall despite both never leaving their rooms, it has been revealed. Both patients were double-vaccinated and both had tested negative on a PCR before arriving in Hong Kong last month, with one flying in from Canada and the second flying in from South Africa. Scientists believe the traveler from South Africa was infected before flying and then passed the infection to the traveler from Canada when opening the door of their room to collect food. The findings raise further fears about just how infectious the Omicron strain of Covid is,

Misremembering Pearl Harbor

American Greatness, by Victor Davis Hanson Original Article

Most Americans once were mostly in agreement about what happened on December 7, 1941, 80 years ago this year. But not so much now, given either the neglect of America’s past in the schools or woke revisionism at odds with the truth. The Pacific war that followed Pearl Harbor was not a result of America egging on the Japanese, not about starting a race war, and not about much other than a confident and cruel Japanese empire falsely assuming that its stronger American rival either would not or could not stop its transoceanic ambitions. (snip)the Japanese Imperial Navy conducted a tactically successful, but strategically imbecilic, surprise attack on the U.S.

  1. They have become a self serving organization that does not believe or want the Regan Revolution and fighting for Capitalism and freedom.

    They want to be power brokers but bring nothing to the table to force the RDP (radicalized Dem. Party) to their knees.

  2. Has anyone sent this to the NRCC? Do they know about the $hit that is going on out here?

  3. Richard Wahl says

    Why would the NRCC care? They only want your money and continue promoting RINOS.
