Don’t Waste Your Time (Or Money) On the Newsom Recall

Brian Brady Brian Brady 2 Comments

Last week, I reported that Kevin Faulconer was running for Governor, presumably positioning himself as the Republican alternative if the #RecallNewsom effort is successful.  I also disclosed that I contributed to his campaign; that was a waste of money. The recall effort is a long shot because Democrats are united and Republican candidates usually weaken one another in primaries.  In …

First 2020 Presidential Debate Winner is Biden. So, why do Biden supporters want debates to stop or change?

Brian Brady Brian Brady, Undesignated 2 Comments

The first Presidential debate of 2020 was a brawl. President Donald Trump serially interrupted former Vice-President Joe Biden, while Biden personally insulted Trump with name-calling. Biden called Trump a liar, racist, and clown. Social media users found it cute to say “nobody won and everybody lost.” But that’s not true. CNN reported that over 60 percent of its viewers declared …

Darrell Issa is A Second Amendment Hero

“Darrell Issa is a Second Amendment Hero.” Those aren’t my words but rather the words of Gun Owners of America, back in 2012. In it’s most recent ranking, Gun Owners of America described Congressman Issa’s record as a “Pro-Gun Voter: philosophically sound.” The National Rifle Association gave Congressman Issa an “A Rating” and invited him to speak about the “Fast …

Should the San Diego County Gun Owners PAC Endorse Julie Thunder For Encinitas Mayor? In a word, “No”. In a phrase, “No. She didn’t ask for the endorsement and will probably reject it.” Michael Schwartz is the Founder and Executive Director of the San Diego County Gun Owners PAC, of which I am a founding (and current) member.

The Central Committee of the Republican Party of San Diego County (RPSDC) is the governing body of the local Republican Party.

San Diego Congressman Scott Peters endorsed Mike Bloomberg for President this morning.  It’s a crafty endorsement for Peters because Bloomberg is an “outsider” but hardly an “outlier”.  Bloomberg was a successful disrputor in the Wall Street information business and built an admirable financial multi0media network.  Most recently, Bloomberg served as the 108th Mayor of New York City from 2002-2014.
