“May you live in interesting times”. Whether intended as a curse or a blessing I believe we are here. The following addresses three subjects that make our times interesting. Amy Coney-Barrett was recently confirmed to the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) by a vote of 52-48. Justice Coney-Barrett is arguably one of the most qualified justices to join the court in decades. …

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

William Del Pilar William 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 …

Campa-Najjar’s latest attempt to be everything to everyone

Greg Larkin Greg Larkin 1 Comment

So, let’s get this straight. Ammar Campa-Najjar, in a real dogfight with Darrell Issa for the 50th Congressional seat, sat down several days ago over drinks for an interview with Defend East County (DEC), in an attempt to show his supposed conservative side. Then, after being beaten up badly for it by the mainstream media and the local Democratic Party …

Right On Daily: A “Drunken” Ammar Campa-Najjar Tries to Wax Republican and Creates a Mess For Himself

Greg Larkin Greg Larkin Leave a Comment

An interesting read, from Right on Daily… “It’s one thing to reach out to Republicans, Democrats do that. We reach out to non-party preference, we reach out to Republicans. But to reach out to white supremacists is the line that we draw in the sand,” said local Democratic Party Chairman Will Rodriguez-Kennedy. Read it all here. As far as the …

My friend Steve Vaus

Politics can be rough; a contact sport. I’ve been trashed and lied about a few times but tonight I don’t want to talk about me, but about my friend Mayor Steve Vaus of Poway. Steve’s in a tough race for Supervisor with another friend of mine. In the beginning of this race I made a hard choice to endorse Mayor …

For several office seekers and voters in East County, last Thursday night’s Politics in Paradise may have been the first and ultimately even the only in-person candidate event they’ll attend this election season.

The 2nd Amendment is on the Ballot November 3rd – How Will You Vote?

San Diego County Gun Owners Rostra General Posts, San Diego County Gun Owners Leave a Comment

With the presidential election only weeks away, we find the Second Amendment (2A) prominently on the ballot. The positions of each candidate regarding the Constitution in general, and the 2A in particular, are starkly disparate. The results of this election could change the direction of the country even more profoundly than the 2016 election did. With so much at stake, …

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

William Del Pilar William 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 …

Trump not taking Hydroxychloroquine?

Barry Jantz Barry Jantz 2 Comments

Following President Donald Trump’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis, it’s being reported he is being treated with Remdesivir and an antibody cocktail produced by Regeneron. Dr. Sean Conley, Trump’s physician, said that in addition to the antibodies, “the president has been taking zinc, Vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and a daily aspirin.” Not Hydroxychloroquine.

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 …
