    During that radio visit in May, Meg stated that she was inviting Insurance Commissioner Poizner and Tom Campbell, for that matter, to participate in three fall debates. Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner’s guber-campaign was clear in stating that they never received an invitation from Whitman. As fall wore on the Poizner Camp began to air audio from Whitman’s comments stating that Meg had never inquired of the commissioner’s availability for fall debates. And that it was actually Meg Whitman who was performing as the “debate dodger” in this case. During Tuesday’s interview, I played the audio from that May 18th appearance...

    Thanksgiving produced many conversation, one surrounding the riches of eMeg, and if she is buying the governor's race for the GOP. There seems to be a new mantra that says, “Republicans are making a mistake in supporting wealthy candidates like Meg Whitman in the gubernatorial primary race; she is just too wealthy to be supported as a candidate.” After reading the bottom-line in the LA Times Wednesday, it seems that GOP voters are beside themselves. How can we vote for a woman who has, and spends, so much of her own money? More at the link...

    Did the White House overlook allegations of sexual misconduct against Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson prior to his election, saving the city millions of federal stimulus dollars? "The money was given to St. Hope to finance AmeriCorps members, who are basically volunteers that they call members, to do tutoring in schools among disadvantaged students. It's a great program," Walpin told Eric Hogue of Hogue News in July. "My investigation found they didn't use the AmeriCorps members for tutoring; they used them to drive Mr. Johnson around, to wash his car, to do all sorts of janitorial and administrative work which the...

    When we were young, we learned about the best and brightest minds in the nation coming together to create the foundation of a new country and fundamentally change the role of government in the lives of the people. Now there is a proposal to have a similar Constitutional Convention in California, but without those great minds, how are we to be sure that we get a document that rewrites the Constitution for the better and not make our state’s problems even worse? It is important to note that according to recent article in the Ventura County Star by Timm Herdt,...
  • "California’s Ridiculous “No-Death” Death Penalty"

    Have you considered...One national news story recently caught my eye and reminded me of the sad state of affairs that is California’s “No Death” Death Penalty. I call it that because most of the 685 inmates on California’s Death Row will die of natural causes. Consider this. One week ago, today, John Allen Muhammad – the Washington DC sniper – was executed in Virginia. He was convicted in 2003 of killing ten people and sentenced to death in March, 2004. That’s five and a half years from conviction through the appeals process to implementation of what is an appropriate and...

    With most of the state beginning to focus on their favorite candidate for the Primary Election coming next June, nobody is paying any attention to the selection of fourteen regular citizens who will become “Rock Stars” come February 2010. Next year fourteen citizens will be known as the “Citizens Redistricting Commission” for California’s future; regular people who will be selected from thousands of applicants between December 15, 2009 and February 15, 2010 put in charge of coloring the Golden State’s future. Have you read the application and qualification process here? These people will be "rick stars", and politically ignorant. The...

    Is there a revolution inside of the California Republican Party? For a third time inside of the current election cycle a statewide Republican candidate has emerged with an embarrassing voting record. The GOP’s 2010 roster of statewide elephants now feature three voting violators: former HP CEO Carly Fiorina for US Senate, former eBay CEO Meg Whitman for Governor and newcomer Damon Dunn for Secretary of State. Each of these GOP candidates are holding serve inside of their respective campaigns, yet they display a great weakness with one of the most vital qualifications for voters to determine where they stand on...
  • "Has Steve Poizner Exaggerated His Numbers?"

    There is a charge that exaggeration and campaign hyperbole has caused California Republican Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner to lose the centerpiece of his stump speech. Has the commissioner magnified his involvement in cost savings inside of the DOI by amplifying his numbers? A consumer watch group says the answer requires a clear perspective on who was initially responsible for lowering rates and reducing the commissioner’s office expenses. If it is decided that Steve Poizner has exaggerated his numbers and reduction measures, where does he run to next for a firm foundation to prove his tax-cutting, conservative ideals? This much is...
