Florida Primary 2012: Romney is Still not in Margaritaville

Ahhh...the Sunshine State where Ponce De Leon was looking for the Fountain of Youth.

It is also the other part of the country where Beach Bums hang their flip flops.  (Venice Beach is the other place).  Robert McCain was here reporting the Florida Primary.  Romney won, but not as cleanly as the News reports.

After the numbers came in, I studied them and the Primary win map.  So, what's the story on this Particular Harbor?



In the Panhandle, the most Republican part of the state, Speaker Gingrich won.

However, I have to repeat this until it gets heard:

Romney is following Meg Whitman's path of buying the Primary with no plan for the General.  If Romney wins, Republicans lose.

The Republican Counties know what is going on; Romney has one (Iowa went to Senator Santorum) state plus Florida (site of the Republican National Convention -- I will be there!), that does not mean a victory.  That only is two states. 

Nothing is decided until Super Tuesday, and even then maybe not.

My question: If Romney cannot win over Republicans, how can he build a base of support for the General Election?

Here are tonight's speeches:

Governor Mitt Romney, Florida 2012


Speaker Gingrich, Florida 2012



Now, a Parrothead tune:

Jimmy Buffett, Tin Cup Chalice (Live in Vienna, VA 2011)


And one more (I am a Parrotthead AND a Goth):

Jimmy Buffett, Floridays

The Establishmentarian War, Year 3 (or why Mitt Romney is the last gasp of Country Club Republicans)

The Establishmenterians (Or Gov. Romney)
In 2008, the Republican Party sent out a Moderate Republican, Senator McCain to go against Liberal Democrat Senator Barack Obama.  All those who cried for a "Moderate Republican," saw fit to vote for Senator Obama not the Moderate Republican.

The history of the Republican party has two themes throughout when it comes to Leadership races:

I)  The "next in line," gets called up (i.e. Senator Dole, Senator McCain, Governor Romney); or

II) Regicide (this happens a lot among the Congressional Republicans -- ask Jerry Ford or Rep.Bob Michal or Speaker Gingrich).

Now, last Thursday, the Romney people continue to follow the Meg Whitman strategyGet other people to fight their battles and "destroy," the other Republicans in the race.

I'm originally a poor kid from Queens, New York (well, still semi broke in Los Angeles) and I know how to scrap (rhetorically, if the other person doesn't all around Hate [see sub plot of last year] the Right for existing, then I can find common ground).  We "local yokels," know how to push back.

There are many Republican activists who set up shop in the Third Street Promanande.  That people, is speaking "Truth to Power,"  Do any Republican Activists think Romney's people would ever set up shop on the Venice Boardwalk? 

The tides echo with laughter.

Meg Whitman's people never walked the Venice Boardwalk for votes, neither did Senator Mccain's.

The Establishmentarians (the Political Consultants and those who have TV and magazine Contracts, see Mike Murphy and Steve Schmidt), after 2008 threw everything they could (along with the Democrats) against Governor Palin.  The next year, they went after Chairman Steel of the RNC.

Where was Romney? (Anywhere Romney goes, put up a sign saying that)


Before you consider a vote for Romney, do you think he has your back if you are a local Republican?  Think twice.

And Rep. Ron Paul is searching for votes among Democrats to crash Republican caucuses.  Why doesn't Chairman Rence Preibus speak and tell the NRCC and NRSC to cancel funding both Paul's in Congress if he shows disloyalty?  (I am writing a Pollitical machine memo for RPLAC , stay tuned)

The Establishmentarians care not one whit about what Local Republicans need.**  After three years, it is time to fight.

Fighting the (Country Club) Power

The image of the Scrappy Fighter who came from Nowhere
There are two legitimate candidates in the Presidential race: Speaker Gingrich and Senator Santorum -- all the firepower unleashed on Gingrich meant those surrogates should have supported the Social Conservative and not the week kneed fighter (Romney), right?

I spoke RS McCain on Saturday night (I'm suffering from insomnia and he saw a Goth girl, thus, a late night conversation from Margaritaville to the Southland) talking about how The Establishmentarians have lost many elections (Rockefeller, Ford, Anderson, Dole, and McCain [twice] to name a few) yet try to make the local activists swallow their candidate.

Truth is, RS and I agreed with this with both of our candidates, better to go down fighting then compromising our beliefs. 

And if you want to blame the GOP for not working across the aisle, Progressives, take a look at yourselves, you threw out Senator Lieberman for working across the aisle with President George W. Bush,. Karma has bitten you folks in the backside. 

The California Republican Party and the RNC must learn this lesson: Never sacrifice beliefs for funds. 

Country Club Republicans, we need your funds, but if you must deal with us, back us.  Romney forgot to support Republicans when we are out of power, this is his Karma. 

If any Country Club Republican wants to run, start with City Council or State Assembly first.  Governor Christine Whitman (R-NJ) has the path you must take.  If you go all big on the first try, you will fail to win (Meg Whitman) or you will run from defending your proposals (Romney would have been a better candidate if he defended Romneycare for a second term in Massachssets).  As a scrapper, we don't need candidates like that.

My worry is if Romney buys the Primary, the General Election will be a repeat of the Governor Election in California 2010.  Thanks Meg Whitman and Maya Buki for screwing the locals and not funding RPLAC and CRP after you hurt us.

What makes America a great country is that anyone, I mean anyone, can run for office and win.  You do not need an Ivy degree or the right pedigree, just the knowledge of how Government works and allies in the Political field.

A Romney win in the Primaries would call that to question. (Democrats have not supported any non-Ivy for President since 1964).

Every County and State party should stand up and question the Country Club Republican leaders and ask them: What is your plan for winning? 

If there is none, look to your local scapppers (RPLAC need not worry, we got lots of scrappers).

Here is a video to get psyched: for the Primary season:

Muhammad Ali, Rumble in the Jungle Speech


My question: Why do the Country Club Republicans always lose Elections that they lead?

**Establishmentarians, please donate to the CRP and RPLAC. A decade long investment will bring 55 Electoral votes to our champion.

America: The Land of 1,000 Dances v. Democrats who only want ONE Dance

I am not going to deal with President Obama's SOTU 2012 -- this video does it here:

President Obama SOTU: 2011 v. 2012 -- The Same Speech


-----

Let's get into the meat of this post.  Hear this tune:

Wilson Pickett, Land of a Thousand Dances (Live, 1970)


And let's read the lyrics:

One, two, three!
One, two, three!
You gotta know how to pony like Bony Maronie
Mashed Potato, do the Alligator
Put your hands on your hips, let your back-bone slip
Do the Watusi, like my little Lucy
Na, na na na na, na na na na, na na na, na na na, na na na na.
Need somebody to help me say it one time
Na, na na na na, na na na na, na na na, na na na, na na na na.
You know I feel alright.
Feel pretty good y'all.

Na, na na na na, na na na na, na na na, na na na, na na na na.
Need somebody to help me say it one time
Na, na na na na, na na na na, na na na, na na na, na na na na.
Dance with me honey, like Long Tall Sally
Twistin' with Lucy, doin the Watusi
Gotta hold of your back, I like it like that
Do the Jerk, watch me work
Ah, do it!

The song has 16 dances, and America is that Land of 1,000 Dances.  What do I mean?

In this day and age, there are different types of music (and I listen to most of them) and people around the country go for different stuff.  Some people like Country-western, others Rap and Hip-Hop, there is Pop and Blues, jazz and swing (and my personal favorite Swing Goth) and finally Goth music.  

What country offers so much diversity in music?  

We on the Right (Tea Partiers, Social Libertarians and Old School Republicans [but not Paul Supporters]) believe in the quality of the individual.  Look, the candidate I support for President this year, Speaker Gingrich, has enough social baggage to make social issues a non-starter in his administration.  And the House Republicans under his watch did not push the Social angle. 

Nor did Speaker Hastart.

Now, the Democrats and the Progressives claim to be in favor of Free Speech; They claim to be Open Minded and they claim to support "the People," (more on this one in another post) -- but the Truth is much scarier.

In the Land of 1,000 Dances, Democrats only want you to dance ONE dance.  Republicans believe every American can dance whatever they want. 



First, some examples of Democrats and free Speech: 

1. Code Pink interrupting Gov. Palin's Convention Speech;

2. Columbia University Young Democrats Block Minutemen from Speaking;

3. Steve Benen wanting to silence Senator McCain on television; 

3A) No Conservative is allowed to comment at the Washington Monthly. and

4)   Democrats Prosecute their opponents (Nixon, Palin, Walker, etc)



Today's Democrats have turned into John Lithgow of Footloose.

How can you claim to be open minded when you Hate other Americans whose views differ? (I had to deal with that last year from a friend who betrayed me)

I can read Liberal Blogs and magazines and not feel that they must be silenced or shat upon for different views. Liberals reading (or hearing) other views think they must be silenced if they do not conform with their vision. Read any Liberal Blog and find CUND Gulag  (who uses the "c" word for women and the "n" word for everyone of that shade)  Hatred of other Americans and does not believe in debate.  A Praetorian Guard of the Left Blogs whose Hatred trumps open mindedness wherever he goes.

If a  Liberal is open minded, then we can hear them defend the free speech rights of Dana Loesch, Rush Limbaugh and the like? Right?  

[Cue crickets]

And with President Obama in office for four years (the first two with a majority Democratic Congress), you'd think they'd take responsibility for not passing a budget in 1,000 days or high unemployment.



No, the mantra of the Closed minded Liberal is: Blame Bush.  

Liberals want to silence other views and they only want one dance: Theirs.

For 2012, this must move to the forefront: Why be locked down to one dance when Americans dance multiple ways?

Liberals believe Government can save us all and business' are suspect.  And if you don't follow their tune, they call you racist, stupid, evil or any matter of things they would not call themselves.  Its a way of stopping debate, not opening up to other voices.And heck, they believe in conspiracies and code words.  And they're the smart folks? The modern Liberal shares a lot of quality beliefs with Paulbots. 

If you look at the "Party of the People," their leadership remains in power 20 years after their time, and are all Ivy leaguers. 

So, thus, if you are a Liberal without an Ivy degree, you cannot move up within the Party.  Speaker Gingrich is not an Ivy and he has a good shot at the Presidency.  Governor Palin had no Ivy and she was also considered.

The last non-Ivy Democrat elected to the Presidency was in 1965.  The last non-Ivy the Republicans elected was in 1984.  Which is the party of the people again?

And Democrats want to control your life; Most Republicans belong to the "leave us alone," coalition (that includes you too, whatever color, creed or music you like)

My question: Will Democrats allow you to dance whatever you want? Or will they continue to silence the opposition?

Newt Rises, Romney Falls and Paul is 0 -3 -- The Message of South Carolina

Speaker Gingrich's Victory Speech(SC 2012)


In Republican Presidential Primaries, South Carolina is the firewall that separates the "Real," candidates from the posers.  Santorum, Romney and Gingrich are real -- Paul and his advocates could not win in a military, Conservative state.  Time for him to go.

There are many messages coming from the Left on "why," Gingrich won.  Those ideas harken back to Fort Sumter and forget that Martain Luther King existed.  For a smart party, the Left can be pretty stupid.  (Keep reading, I will write about this subject this week).

No, Speaker Gingrich's win comes down to one thing, this video:

Speaker Gingrich v. John King


And here is how History repeats (as it were):

Governor Reagan, 1980, "I paid for this Microphone!"


Paul has not won Iowa, New Hampshire or South Carolina.  Santorum has Iowa, Romney, New Hampshire and Gingrich, South Carolina. And Florida is closed, REPUBLICAN Primary and Paul has absconded.  Hmmm.....

And if Gingrich moves ahead, he is not a Social Conservative, that makes things interesting.

My question: Who do you like and why?

Doctor Who -- Creature from the Pit

Saturday night and its time for another Doctor Who episode!

This episode is called Creature from the Pit, a story about Diplomacy, Metal and Thieves.

While I know Speaker Gingrich won South Carolina, I will discuss it in more detail tomorrow night. (Tonight, I'm busy at Kinko's on Wilshire importing my CD collection into iTunes).

Here are some posts to look forward to this week:

1) Democrats and the Land of 1,000 Dances;

2) This one inspired by my friend Jason Buckley:
  Who are "the People?"  Who decides for "the People?"  Expect KPFK references as well;

3) Florida, Florida, Florida and the 2012 GOP Primary;

4) Los Angeles and the Democratic Party Mafia;

and finally,

5)  Something unexpected -- even I don't what I will write here!

Now enjoy, Creature from the Pit!

Should the CRP or RPLAC back Hollywood or Silicon Valley over SOPA/PIPA?

When the Internet Blackout occurred over SOPA/PIPA -- I realized it was a battle between Old and New technologies.

A battle that is taking place on OUR battlefields -- RPLAC and the California Republican Party can take a stand here.  And since I also have been on the Hill, I can also make a suggestion for how the DC GOP can win while Silicon Valley and Hollywood battles it out.

To quote the General of the Army of Davids, "Heh,"



An Unexpected Party

SOPA is the Stop Online Piracy Act (or HR 3261).  It is designed to extend copyright laws into the Inter tubes, so places like YouTube, Blogs and other places cannot stream anything.

This bill was crafted for the Old technologies based in Hollywood.

PIPA  is the Protect IP Act (or SB 968) and like its brother in the House [SOPA], it seeks to limit streaming of music, TV or movies across the internet.

This being an election year, it will not pass -- there will be too much pressure from Google and Wikipedia (and other sites) to put a break on it.  (Thank G-d!).

This is the first major battle between Hollywood and Silicon Valley.

For now, the Hollywood donors to President Obama are complaining (yet, these Liberals are the 1% -- why is there poverty still in Hollywood? Also, if you want Republicans on your side, why did the MPAA hire controversial Democratic Senator Chris Dodd?  )

Now is the time for we in the Southland and biggest State in the Union to use stratagems to  fight this battle.

Follow me.


Inside Information 

If you notice, these chapter titles are from- the Hobbit - or the sub-title: There and Back Again.  Our first stop is to the Republicans in Congress and to the Americans for tax reform to meet with Grover Norquist.  The eagle flies east.

If we had the ear of Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, House Judiciary Chair Lamar Smith and Ways and Means Chair Dave Camp, I would tell them: STOP! (just like William Buckley standing athwart history).  This can be done better with a Republican Senate majority and a Republican White House.

What's the plan, man?

First, let's look back at how little Bilbo Baggins handled Smaug:


(Yes, I am Bilbo here)

The gaining of power is about the using of Power (look how Senator Reid used his power of the Senate to block Bush nominees; And then look how President Obama went against the Senate using the same tactics -- that, ladies and gentlemen is Power.).

I would like to ask Grover Norquist if in his proposal not to raise taxes on the American Public, if there can be a loophole to raise taxes on those who don't support the Right.  Say, Hollywood moguls, Oscar winners and musicians who rail against Republicans on all their platforms.

And if Norquist makes it so, why shouldn't the Hill (Republican Majority House and Senate) follow?



Now, the Eagle flies West.

What role should RPLAC play?
What role should the CRP play?

The Gathering of the Clouds

California, and Los Angeles are the edge of the frontier and the beginning of the ocean.  Our Eagle lands on top of the Santa Monica Pier, where, looking East down Colorado Boulevard (and other parts of Santa Monica) sees a collection of new and old media.  Google and Yahoo are here; So is Bruckheimer films and MTV.

Old and New Media land in RPLAC's backyard and the CRP's.  They also have Silicon Valley to look after as well.

As I said before, Politics, that includes Governing, is about Power.  Use it to help your friends and hurt your foes.  

Thanks to modern technology, we can see how much the folks in the Hollywood Hills (Industry types) give to the GOP (either locally or nationally)....


View Larger Map


In 2010, the zip code 90046 gave 78% to Democrats and again, 78% for Democrats in the 2012 cycle.

Should RPLAC, CRP or the DC GOP support Hollywood philosophically when they won't even donate to our candidates?  Big fat NO.

In Silicon Valley, there are Venture Capitalists -- RPLAC and CAGOP must show them by backing us, we lead forward to the future.  Before we go to Silicon Valley for funds, RPLAC and CAGOP must put out a statement allowing the Hollywood types to invest in their local GOP. If we show the outreached hand, Hollywood will look the fools.  

If they refuse, northward we go! 

The Last Stage

This election season, there must be discussions here in Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, Sacramento and DC -- if we want Power, we must be unafraid of using it.  I wrote this using New technology and I still haven't gotten invited to an opening night screening yet (If you're nice to this Gothy Republican and his candidates, I might listen and help Hollywood's woes!) 

Silicon Valley wins!

My questions: Why should Republicans help Hollywood with their Copyright issues when they speak loudly against us?  and, Why are Republicans in Congress and the White House afraid of using their legal powers to attack Democratic allies?

Ron Paul Supporters in Los Angeles: Fish or Cut Bait!

Quote by MLK
The first time I heard about the Ron Paul supporters here in LA, they were engaged in a lawsuit against the last RPLAC Board.  (They still owe the funds back to RPLAC today after they lost).

The second time I dealt with Ron Paul supporters, they cheated at the CRP Convention Straw Poll (same figures from above). [NOTE: The RPLAC Straw Poll was handled professionally by both RPLAC and Paul Supporters].  

Now, as we enter Election 2012, there is an issue I need to bring up to the Los Angeles Ron Paul Supporters, Fish or Cut Bait!

Rep. Paul (note, not Governor Paul) has gone on record as saying he would not vote for the future GOP nominee against President Obama..  Many Paul supporters have taken that same tack. 

And to top it off, a Paul supporter is directly pushing Anti-Israel/ Anti-Semitism videos into the public sphere.  And it is Dani Rascon of the 61st ADC is the one pushing these videos forward as a Paul Supporter.

Let me quote from Republican Party Animals:

"Danielle “Dani” Rascon is a Central Committee member of the Republican Party of Los Angeles County (RPLAC), and the chair of its 61st Assembly District. Although she is a GOP official, she is a Paulist first and foremost (she was a precinct captain for the 2008 Paul presidential campaign). She doesn’t flinch from letting people know that if Paul bolts the GOP for a third-party run, she’ll follow.

...
"To claim that there’s no difference between a theocratic dictatorship forcing women to cover their heads or face arrest and imprisonment, and individual people in a free country who make a choice to live a certain way, is insane. That claim of moral equivalence displays a desire to excuse the brutality of Muslim gender apartheid while beating up on Orthodox Jews for the way they choose to live.

"I mean, isn’t the whole “Paul revolution” thing supposed to be about personal choice, free of government coercion?
 

"And then the name-calling started. From Rascon:

"This is the problem with you Zionists. You are willing to sacrifice the safety, well-being, livelihoods, futures, families, economy of over 300 million Americans to fight in wars that have nothing to do with us. And then you get rabid with those of us who stand up for the safety, security, and CONSTITUTION of AMERICANS."
----

My late father had a saying: Fish or Cut Bait. It meant if you were planning on taking Vienna, take Vienna. 

If the Paul Supporters in Los Angeles County want any recognition and support for their windmills, they must do three things:

1)  Kick out any Anti Israel/Anti Semitism from their own ranks.  If William F. Buckley, the father of Modern Conservatism could do it, so can Ron Paul (and any local Paul supporter who will take the lead -- I will promote any Paul Supporter who is actively doing this in the Southland).

2) If Paul loses the nomination for 2012, I would like to hear before the August Convention (actually, I'd like to hear it RIGHT NOW without threading any needle) that you will help defeat President Obama by supporting the Republican Candidate and not take your ball and go home;

3) If Ron Paul supporters are really about Libertarianism and not a Cult of Personality, find local candidates to support and fund as well.  Obamabots and Paulbots are the same people.  

If you need an example of how Conservatism Hates Anti-Semites, let me introduce you to William F. Buckley:






My question: Who has done more for Los Angeles Conservatives, Buckley supporters or Paul Supporters?

Martin Luther King Day 2011

First let's hear a speech that makes even today's speakers seem like gnats:


Martin Luther King, Jr: "Mountaintop" speech full length from Filip Goc on Vimeo.

Here is a transcript (and some quotes):


Something is happening in Memphis; something is happening in our world. And you know, if I were standing at the beginning of time, with the possibility of taking a kind of general and panoramic view of the whole human history up to now, and the Almighty said to me, "Martin Luther King, which age would you like to live in?" - I would take my mental flight by Egypt and I would watch God's children in their magnificent trek from the dark dungeons of Egypt through, or rather across the Red Sea, through the wilderness on toward the promised land. And in spite of its magnificence, I wouldn't stop there. I would move on by Greece, and take my mind to Mount Olympus. And I would see Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Euripides and Aristophanes assembled around the Parthenon. And I would watch them around the Parthenon as they discussed the great and eternal issues of reality. But I wouldn't stop there.

I would go on, even to the great heyday of the Roman Empire. And I would see developments around there, through various emperors and leaders. But I wouldn't stop there. I would even come up to the day of the Renaissance, and get a quick picture of all that the Renaissance did for the cultural and aesthetic life of man. But I wouldn't stop there. I would even go by the way that the man for whom I'm named had his habitat. And I would watch Martin Luther as he tacked his ninety-five theses on the door at the church of Wittenberg.

But I wouldn't stop there. I would come on up even to 1863, and watch a vacillating president by the name of Abraham Lincoln finally come to the conclusion that he had to sign the Emancipation Proclamation. But I wouldn't stop there.
...
But I wouldn't stop there. Strangely enough, I would turn to the Almighty, and say, "If you allow me to live just a few years in the second half of the 20th century, I will be happy." [applause] Now that's a strange statement to make, because the world is all messed up. The nation is sick. Trouble is in the land; confusion all around. That's a strange statement. But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars. And I see God working in this period of the twentieth century in a way that men, in some strange way, are responding - something is happening in our world. The masses of people are rising up. And wherever they are assembled today, whether they are in Johannesburg, South Africa; Nairobi, Kenya; Accra, Ghana; New York City; Atlanta, Georgia; Jackson, Mississippi; or Memphis, Tennessee - the cry is always the same - "We want to be free."
...

Now, what does all of this mean in this great period of history? It means that we've got to stay together. We've got to stay together and maintain unity. You know, whenever Pharaoh wanted to prolong the period of slavery in Egypt, he had a favorite, favorite formula for doing it. What was that? He kept the slaves fighting among themselves. But whenever the slaves get together, something happens in Pharaoh's court, and he cannot hold the slaves in slavery. When the slaves get together, that's the beginning of getting out of slavery. Now let us maintain unity.

Secondly, let us keep the issues where they are. The issue is injustice. The issue is the refusal of Memphis to be fair and honest in its dealings with its public servants who happen to be sanitation workers. Now, we've got to keep attention on that. That's always the problem with a little violence. You know what happened the other day, and the press dealt only with the window-breaking. I read the articles. They very seldom got around to mentioning the fact that one thousand, three hundred sanitation workers were on strike, and that Memphis is not being fair to them, and that Mayor Loeb is in dire need of a doctor. They didn't get around to that.
...
Now these are some practical things we can do. We begin the process of building a greater economic base. And at the same time, we are putting pressure where it really hurts. I ask you to follow through here.
...

And then I got to Memphis. And some began to say the threats, or talk about the threats that were out. What would happen to me from some of our sick white brothers?

Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. [applause] And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land! So I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!
---

Martin Luther King talked of individual freedom and Economic freedom -- the freedom to do and be in America whatever you wanted to be.  Voting Rights and respectability came from the Civil Rights Movement.

Here is another person worth listening to.  Watch:





Think about what happened to Herman Cain and Justice Thomas.  

Any person in poverty is not free, neither is keeping the State in the way of creating jobs. 

And in lieu of the Democrats, if you oppose Alfonzo Rachel, then you too are a racist.

My support of Freedom House is simply about wanting all men (and women) should be free.

My question: Is there racism today? If yes, how is it fixed? If not, where was the Tipping Point?

Doctor Who -- City of Death

It's Saturday night, time for another showing of Doctor Who!

The Mona Lisa


Tonight's episode is City of Death dealing with Paris, Leonardo Da Vinci and  the Mona Lisa.  Also look for Julian Glover and John Cleese in this episode. And this was written by Douglas Adams.

After I come back from the club tonight, I'm going to watch this episode too!

This week, I will write about the South Carolina primary; How Anger has made its home on the Left and some Los Angeles issues.

Now, lets enjoy City of Death!

The Valley Endorses Gary Aminoff, Maureen Johnson, Susan Kennedy and Arturo Alas for RPLAC 2012

The County with the Most Republicans in the USA! 

To my Fellow Central Committee and RPLAC members from the greatest County (and City) in the world:

First of all, can I say that we have a great group of people who are working on all level from the Assembly District Committees to the CRP?

 As this is a Presidential Election year, we need to move yesterday on getting funds, finding support and breaking through the only city where TV, movies and music is the full time job, not just the enjoyment of, our cities population.

First, click this link of our rising stars.  Without them, our leaders cannot get things done.

And before I go any further, my Goth GOP group (Right in the Dark) will have our first meeting in the Miracle Mile on January 28.  Dress in Black and we'll be able to promote our cause.  See me and I'll tell you how.

Now, the most important thing, we RPLAC members must do tomorrow is make the transition from a solitary Chair to full team to occur by Acclimation.  This is election season, we must get started today.

Let me introduce you to the Unity Ticket that will help Chairwoman Hauter gain ground in 2012 (and hopefully beyond):

Gary Aminoff for 1st Vice Chair.  My mentor, a good friend and "Mr. Republican," himself for us Californians (I still would back a Governor Aminoff run any day).  If you don't know his background, let me show you:

Gary Aminoff has faithfully served RPLAC in many capacities over the years including a previous term as First Vice Chairman, and Treasurer.

He is currently Chairman of the Technology and Communications Committee as well as the Speakers Bureau of the Los Angeles County Republican Party.
Gary is President of the San Fernando Valley Republican Club, which he co-founded in 2003, and which is the largest chartered Republican Club in California.

In 2010, Gary was re-elected for a fourth consecutive term to the Los Angeles County Republican Central Committee in the 42nd Assembly District. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the California Republican Assembly, is the District Director for the 20th Senatorial District and is President of its San Fernando Valley Chapter. He has served on the National Leadership Council of the Republican Jewish Coalition and is active in its Los Angeles Chapter.
...

Gary has also has been involved as a volunteer senior advisor on several congressional, assembly and state senate races.
Mr. Aminoff is a commercial real estate broker and real estate investment advisor with offices in Beverly Hills. He is a frequent speaker at Republican clubs and organizations
Now we come to Maureen Johnson, for Second Vice Chair. a fellow New Yorker like myself, she has worked her tail off getting the Westside to become a battlefield (and kudos from the Valley to Robert Pederson for keeping it alive with the Westside Republicans).

She is a fighter and a doer.  Again, someone that RPLAC would be honored to have in a leadership capacity.  Here is her bio: 


Maureen was appointed West Los Angeles Regional Chair for several campaigns including Rudy Guiliani for President.  As West Los Angeles Regional Chair for McCain/Palin, Maureen opened a major headquarters operation in West Los Angeles.  She also worked as West Los Angeles Chair for Steve Poizner.

Maureen was appointed West Los Angeles Regional Chair by the Republican Party of Los Angeles County and is now Volunteer Co-Chair for Los Angeles County.

Most recently, Maureen ran the Northern half of the 36th Congressional District for Craig Huey for Congress.

Maureen's expertise with campaigns encompasses strategy, producing major GOTV volunteer operations and candidate presentations at fairs and community gatherings as well as candidate development.

Maureen belongs to many Republican organizations such as the National Federation of Republican Women as well as their Los Angeles Chapter; San Fernando Valley Republican Club; Hollywood Congress of Republicans; Beach Cities Republican Club; Westside Republicans to name a few.  Maureen also serves as a Vice Chair for Westside Republicans.

Maureen is now in the process of opening a Westchester/Del Rey Republican Club, which will cover Westchester, Marina del Rey, Playa del Rey, Playa Vista and other outlying areas.

For Assistant Secretary, we have Susan Kennedy. I don't know her personally, but if Gary and Maureen are on the same ticket, we should support her. here is her bio:

With a group of classmates, she cut school one chilly day in January 1953 to visit Washington where they stood in the rain to watch Dwight Eisenhower take his first oath of office.  By the time Ike ran for a second term, Susan was in Texas, where a residence issue kept her from being able to register and vote.  From here, the family moved abroad to Japan, where in 1959, Susan tried vainly to register for the 1960 election.  When the critical election between JFK and Nixon rolled around, Susan was in Los Angeles.  At that time, election law required a one-year residence to register, which left Susan in the cold again.  In 1961, an off year for elections, Susan went out of her way to go to the Registrar's office to insure she would never again lose her franchise and has been continuously registered since.

A few years later, she trained to become a deputy registrar, a position that has been eliminated by the introduction of register-by-mail and motor-voter programs.

During the 60s and 70s, she was active with LA County Young Republicans and worked on Ed Reineke's congressional campaign. As a Central Committee member, she worked on various campaigns for the 2010 election and the city election early in 2011.  Susan serves as secretary for her Assembly District Central Committee and also for RPLAC's Bylaws and Rules Committee.

Having lived abroad, Susan is keenly aware of foreign policy issues.  She is a constitutional scholar and a firm believer in the rule of law.  On a civil literacy test on line, where the general public scores about 49% and elected public officials score an abysmal 44%, Susan aced the test at 100%.

Now retired, Susan pioneered the field of word processing, becoming something of a computer expert in the process. An English major with study in several foreign languages, Susan is a capable writer and grammarian.  Thanks to a lifelong interest in the theater, Susan had the fortune while in Japan to work as a disk jockey on a Japanese radio network. She continues developing those speaking skills through membership in the RPLAC-sponsored James Madison Toastmasters organization.  Most of her work career has been in the legal field, which gives her valuable insight to the law and the values that she believes should be held by those seeking public office.

And finally, for Assistant Treasurer, Arturo Alas.  Again, I don't know him yet, but he looks to be a rising star.  Here is his bio: 

Arturo E. Alas III is 30 years old and was born and raised in Los Angeles County. As a youth, he had the opportunity to represent that US in several international competitions for soccer which in turn earned him a scholarship to Sonoma State University. After one year at Sonoma State several international scouts approached Arturo from various countries in Latin America to play soccer abroad. Since it was his goal to play professional soccer, he accepted the offer. As a result, Arturo had the great opportunity to live and work in Mexico, Central America, and South America, where he was able to absorb the different cultures, as well as share the culture of the United States. Consequently, his experience living in Latin America has given him the tools to communicate and understand the largest growing electorate in the United States.

After a knee injury ended his professional athletic aspirations, he returned home to Southern California and began a career as a business professional. Since that time, he has had an opportunity to work in the insurance industry as a top producing life insurance sales agent. Arturo later expanded on this experience and became involved in the real estate business, where he started as a loan officer and in time became an investor. Currently, he is a real estate agent working in the greater Los Angeles area in both residential and commercial properties.

As assistant treasurer, Arturo is prepared to vigorously scrutinize all our financial operations and make sure they are in lock step with the purpose and objectives of this committee. His background and experience in insurance and real estate have given him the opportunity to know what it takes to run a business. He has never let anything obstruct his pursuit of meeting personal goals and he knows that a balanced budget is essential to a well-oiled business.

The Valley endorses these great Men and Women of Los Angeles. Let's vote them in by acclimation so we can win in 2012!  

Repeat after me (and tell your out of state Republican activists to do the same):


If Monies, Volunteers and Time is invested in flipping Los Angeles from City Council to the US House of Representatives, 55 Electoral Votes go to the next Republican President! 

See you tomorrow night!

Here is a song to get you ready for Election 2012:

The White Hole of Romney's Wins

"So, what is it?"




In my sci-fi geekiness, I have only seen one Red Dwarf episode, and that was "White Hole,"

The "White Hole", episode trebled my geekiness factor because it dealt with Time Travel issues, intelligent (and not so intelligent) AI's and toast. 

"So, what is it?"


What does this epsiode have to do with Romney's wins in Iowa and New Hampshire?

Let's roll back and look at Romney's Iowa's numbers in 2008:

Mike Huckabee 40,84134%
Mitt Romney 29,94925%
Fred Thompson 15,90413%
John McCain 15,55913%
Ron Paul 11,81710%
Rudy Giuliani 4,0973%

Now, Iowa, 2012: 


Mitt Romney30,01524.6%
Rick Santorum30,00724.5%
Ron Paul26,21921.4%
Newt Gingrich16,25113.3%

After 4 years, after Iowa (and the rest of the Republicans) got to know Romney, he only gained 66 votes.

Now let's fly our TARDIS to New Hampshire 2008:


John McCain 88,46637%
Mitt Romney 75,34332%
Mike Huckabee 26,76811%
Rudy Giuliani 20,3959%
Ron Paul 18,3038%

And now, New Hampshire 2012:


Mitt Romney97,53239.3%
Ron Paul56,84822.9%
Jon Huntsman41,94516.9%
Newt Gingrich23,4119.4%
Rick Santorum23,3629.4%
Rick Perry1,7660.7%

New Hampshire is next door to MA, so by default, any local New Englander will get the votes. 

"So, what is it?" 


Romney's staff is Meg Whitman's staff.  Meg Whitman's strategy was to buy up the primary, but she had no clue how to fight in the general and California lost. 

I await the day that Romney visits RPLAC, the SFVRC or the Westside Republicans.  Hint: Whitman, in the primary, thought these organizations were unimportant, so will Romney.

If Romney cannot handle attacks from Speaker Gingrich on Bain Capital, how will handle 1% charges by President Obama? 

Romney has a habit of not defending Republicans that do not stand by him (i.e Governor Palin, Alaska 2009 and Chairman Steele 2010) -- if he wins, he will follow the Whitman routine.  Do we really need another Country Club Republican who cannot fight against the Left?  

Romney and Meg Whitman (L-R) Country Club Republicans

Senator McCain was a moderate republican, how much support from the media did he get?   Romney will fall into the same trap (as did Whitman). 

If Romney wins (and buys up) the Primary, President Obama wins a second term.  Do not doubt me.

"So what is it?"

History is repeating itself, with voters forgetting the causality of going "Electable," (Hint: Senator Kerry was considered "Electable," by Democrats in 2004) Let's not fall into this White Hole. 

My question: What can we "Local Yokels," and Bloggers do to stop the Romney juggernaut? .

"Someone punch him out!"
