Andrew Hayes for State Assembly District 75 – The Interview

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar Leave a Comment

The Andrew Hayes Interview I’ve reached out to all three Republican candidates in my district to interview so constituents can learn more about those who would lord over us. Carl DeMaio said yes, then no. Technically, he said after the primaries, but that’s a no for all intents and purposes. Jack J. Fernandes said yes but hasn’t responded to my …

San Diego County Board of Supervisors Turns Blue

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar 4 Comments

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… Upon entering local politics in 2015, I learned the San Diego County Republican Party (SDCRP) is one of California’s most successful! It’s where Republicans thrive, with the board of supervisors showcasing our dominance since the 1990s. Unsurprisingly, that’s come to a crashing end! Reading the San Diego News Desk article, “Democrat Victories in San …

Issa or Campa-Najjar: Who Really Represents the District’s Values?

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar 4 Comments

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… PART I of my series on Campa-Najjar. The setting was 2018 – the board of supervisors, 5th District debate. Putting on the event and being proper, I invited the usual VIPs to support their candidates. I welcomed those who showed up, including San Diego Democratic Party Chair Jessica Hayes, who came to support her …

Latinos Shock Telemundo and Pick Trump as the First Presidential Debate Winner!

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar Leave a Comment

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… The first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden was a “bleep” show, but Trump edged Biden and won. The reason? The Latino voter! A post-debate Latino poll, while unscientific, leaped out because of its disparity – it was Trump by 2/3. It wasn’t even close. As a Latino, I want to …

50th Congressional District – Fundamentalist Hypocrisy

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar 1 Comment

A Conservative Latino’s take on politics… The race to see who represents the conservative voice for the 50th Congressional District is over. Grassroots activist, Carl DeMaio conceded to former representative Darrell Issa. I don’t know who started it, but as we know, this campaign got ugly. Most don’t remember a race between two Republicans this bad in years. The last …

Changing Demographics – Del Pilar for Central Committee

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar Leave a Comment

A Conservative Latino’s View on Politics… The Republican Party has struggled to reach minority communities. The top reason I hear for losses is “changing demographics.” BREAKING NEWS PEOPLE! Those demographic changes will continue and are increasing. However, I can help the Republican Party change what my brothers and sisters believe, and how they vote. Changing Demographics Some state “changing demographics” …

Carl DeMaio – Entrepreneurial Politics

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar Leave a Comment

A Conservative Latino’s View on Politics… I understand how an industry can begin to accept certain standards or ways of doing business that go against successful norms – politics is one of them. Since getting involved in local politics, and how I’ve lived life from both a personal and business perspective, I read Carl DeMaio’s campaign team announcement, and I …

The Empire Strikes Back: CAGOP Remains Center-Left with Jessica Patterson

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar 1 Comment

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… If your happy with the California Republican Party (CAGOP) and wanted the continued success of the worst beatdown in CAGOP history, your candidate was center-left Republican Jessica Patterson. Handpicked by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, she’s to be his marionette to his puppet master and continue the same leadership we’ve had since 2010. Conservatives …

Patterson, the Marionette; McCarthy, the Puppet Master and the CAGOP

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar 8 Comments

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… Since 2006, the California Republican Party (CAGOP) has become a running joke with every lopsided defeat. One would think the 2018 midterm beatdown would welcome change. However, current CAGOP leadership is willing to continue digging, taking us down a deeper hole and a new puppet master is emerging. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy with …

CAGOP Establishment Blames Trump for 2018 Midterms

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar 4 Comments

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… The California Republican Party (CAGOP) has been losing this state exponentially since 2006. After the utter destruction in the 2018 midterms, publicly disgraced and scandal-ridden former Republican state vice-chair Kristin Olsen conveniently puts the blame on President Donald Trump. Ms. Olsen, a leader in the CAGOP, needs to look in the mirror. At the …

How the Grinch… err SB1 (Gas Tax) Stole Christmas

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… The $800 average SB1 (gas tax) takes from California families is the equivalent of what we spend on Christmas and shows our politicians to be the Grinch who stole Christmas. A CHRISTMAS STORY My mother worked in factories her whole life. She worked hard and sent most of her paycheck back to Panama. My …

Measure SS – Conservatives should endorse

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar 10 Comments

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… I’m speaking to my fellow Valley Center conservatives on Measure SS. Those touting the mantra “no more taxes” and yes, it has legitimacy. We’re tired of politicians campaigning on fewer taxes and then voting to increase them. However, Measure SS is a local issue. Let this conservative tell you something about serving on the …

Constitution Triumphs Over Becerra, the FACT Act and NARAL

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar Leave a Comment

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… People, regardless of ideology and political party, we must realize, we need constitutional judges because they look at the Constitution to direct them on the law. Constitutional judges protect all ideological sides. When a court like the Ninth Circuit of Appeals rules with feelings, emotions, and ideology, it may be popular, but likely suppresses individual …

Save the Date! Desmond v. Gomez – Unfinished Business

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar Leave a Comment

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… The 23-year reign of District 5 Supervisor Bill Horn is ending. We’ll know his replacement November 6, 2018. Will it be San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond – Horn’s chosen successor – or newcomer, legislative analyst Michelle Gomez? Desmond, a steadfast Republican, dominated the primary, but Democrat hopeful Gomez looks to change that. Valleyites and …

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… I was lucky enough to hear Mark Janus speak on his legal battle against the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees – Janus v. AFSCME.

CAGOP U.S. Senate Candidates – Missed Opportunity

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar 2 Comments

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… The California Republican Party (CAGOP) implemented endorsement rules to separate those who simply want to see their names on a ballot from those who want to be contenders. One criterion is 200 delegate endorsement signatures and at least 10 of them must be from delegates of the eight regions. In other words, they must work …

Open Secret No More – “NPP” Surpasses GOP Registration

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar 7 Comments

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… I view the state Republican Party with embarrassment, contempt, and no awareness when it comes to voter registration. The recent headlines showing the Republican Party falling to No. 3 in registration, behind “No Party Preference” (NPP) is making the public aware of their massive failure in California. How’d we get here? “’No Party Preference’ …

Where is Travis Allen? It’s time to lead! #WHEREISTRAVIS

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar 6 Comments

A conservative Latino’s view on politics… The primary battle between Republican Party members, Assemblyman Travis Allen and business leader John Cox was vicious and nasty – mostly from Allen toward Cox. It turned into a lopsided, decisive beatdown that saw Cox take Allen out by 16.3 percentage points (over 900,000 votes). It was reminiscent of the utter destruction Mike Tyson gave …
