50th Congressional District – Fundamentalist Hypocrisy

William Del Pilar William 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 Pilar William 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” …

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 Pilar William 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 Pilar William 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 Pilar William 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… 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 Pilar William 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 …

CAGOP U.S. Senate Candidates – Missed Opportunity

William Del Pilar William 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

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’ …

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 …

A conservative Latino’s view on politics. The battle in the governor’s race, between John Cox and Travis Allen to represent the Republican Party and be one of the top-two in the “jungle primary,” is dividing us. Allen voters embellish Cox’s flaws, while purposely ignoring Allen’s and are creating an irreparable wedge if one of them advances. Allen’s rhetoric is also …
