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 …

Carl DeMaio – Entrepreneurial Politics

William Del Pilar William 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 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 …

Surprised that DeMaio didn’t run? Just follow the moves.

When Carl DeMaio pulled papers for the 50th Congressional District on Monday of last week, while also paying the $1,740 non-refundable filing fee, many thought that was a final decision. He was indeed running against Duncan Hunter. When he then announced last Friday he wasn’t running, it surprised the same “many.” Why the heck would he cough up over 1,700 …

Congressman Hunter Associates Sen. Rand Paul with Nancy Pelosi

Eric Andersen Eric Andersen 5 Comments

For those who missed last night’s meeting of the San Diego County Republican Party at the Town & Country: A foolish comment from Congressman Duncan Hunter as he used the podium of our party to publicly denigrate Sen.

Voices on Healthcare

Barry Jantz Barry Jantz Leave a Comment

My Sunday San Diego column at FlashReport… I attended the annual Grossmont Hospital Foundation gala last night while Congressional voting was taking place on healthcare.  Some say it wasn’t a good night for hospitals to celebrate, but the Grossmont event was scheduled long ago and Nancy Pelosi didn’t ask about any scheduling conflicts. Any night that the community comes together …
