Winning 2020 in CA

The Demoncrats have been very successful at making California a one party State, which does not mean that some measure of victory is possible for Republicans.  It does mean that it winning will be hard work.  Over at the Election Forum Blog Craig Huey, always worth a read, lays out Six Little Known Strategies for Winning in 2020, some of which I shamelessly excerpt below, but get over there and read the whole thing.

Essential 1: Define our message – We have the solutions to the biggest issues.
Conservatives, libertarians and Christians don’t need to change their message to look more like the Democrat Socialists’ anti-Trump message of Democrat Socialist social and economic values.
Instead, we need to focus on what is relevant and important to people: solutions to big issues.
Conservatives, libertarians and Christians have answers to growing economic dangers. Democrat Socialists want more rules and regulations and a “nanny state” fed by higher taxes. They want to kill business with increasing minimum wages. They want to make taxpayers pay for ridiculous bureaucratic jobs, “free” healthcare for all … and more.
Conservatives, libertarians and Christians have the answers to our massive, historic debt of $741 billion. They know how to boost the economy and create more jobs with policies that encourage new innovation and business growth.
Under President Trump, the economy has boomed. Employment rates – especially for blacks and Hispanics – are at a high. New businesses are thriving.
Conservatives, libertarians and Christians need to stand for something – to help restore the American dream.
They need to regroup and push a message of job growth and lowered taxes to encourage economic growth.
They also have to reach out to a wider range of voters with a message of freedom and lower taxes … as well as better schools and safer communities.
For Hispanics, pro-life, pro-economic opportunity and pro-family are key issues.
For Evangelical Christian and conservative Catholics: life, religious freedom, pro- Israel, helping the persecuted Church and who sits on the U.S. Supreme Court are among the top non-negotiable issues.
We have the right messaging on health. We have the right messaging on education. We have the right messaging on so many different key issues that the Democrat Socialists are running with … and we have the right answers.
Essential 2: Revitalize the Republican Party.
Conservatives need to focus on training and mobilization for the next generation.
We need to use data for targeted digital marketing, text messaging and direct mail.
We need to make phone calls and go door-to-door. We must have data collection, better marketing, a better Get Out the Vote (GOTV) campaign – or we will lose.
I hold workshops to train millennials in advanced marketing and advertising tactics for political campaigns. We need to hold more of these kinds of workshops, to educate and inform conservatives, libertarians and Christians how to be effective.
For too long, conservatives, libertarians and Christians have been identified with a narrow set of issues.
Now, we need to stand for something – to help restore the American dream.
Essential 3: Register people to vote.
Democrat Socialist organizations purposefully collect data. They go door-to-door in some neighborhoods, contact people on the phone, hold potlucks and community forums and sign people up for Obamacare and other social services to collect data.
Then they find out who isn’t registered to vote … or who is an infrequent voter…
And they make sure everyone is registered to vote … and does vote on election day.
They make sure people get vote-by-mail ballots.
We need to do a better job of educating and informing non-registered conservatives, libertarians and Christians on how to vote for people who will uphold their beliefs.
Ballot harvesting should not be allowed … but it is. And Democrat Socialists are going to use it.
That’s why we need to use the same tactic, or we’re going to see another “blue tsunami.” We need to help people to register to vote – especially at churches, where there are millions of potential voters who aren’t voting.
Through election time, churches, small groups and individual ministries can educate people how to vote their values and help people fill out their ballots and turn them in. And, the Sunday before election time, churches can designate a special “Ballot Sunday” where congregants can bring their ballots to church to fill them out and turn them in.
Essential 4: Make it easy to know who to vote for.
Democrat Socialists created powerful, unified voter guides to get out the vote (GOTV).
We must do the same thing. People want trusted advice.
My websites,, and had close to 1 million voters using our recommendations.
This number must be greatly multiplied … reaching voters nationwide.
We need to hold events and educate voters so that they know how to elect conservatives, libertarians and Christian candidates.
Essential 5: We need to use the most advanced marketing possible.
We need to outdo the Democrat Socialists in their branding and positioning, in their outreach and in their marketing efforts.
Trump’s team outperformed Hillary’s team – a team that was 4 years behind all the great new advances.
One of the most advanced strategic tactics I use is called “geo-fencing,” which sends targeted videos by Facebook, pre-roll and Google to the cell phones of people who have visited certain locations or events, such as churches.
This high-level digital strategy has allowed me to reach voters with a targeted, relevant and critical message they need to hear.
For example, I ran a campaign for a conservative candidate with zero name- recognition and less than $100,000. He was running against three well-known candidates and the Republican establishment.
And yet, he nearly made it to the top two – which in California, is a nearly impossible mission.
How did I do it?
First, I tied his campaign to a petition against California’s horrific “Ban the Bible” bill.
Then, I geo-fenced residents of the district he was running in who had gone to Greg Laurie’s Harvest Crusade and Franklin Graham’s crusade.
I also geo-fenced over 50 churches in the same area, targeting people who had gone to church in the past 6 months. We reached 95,000 people with Facebook ads, pre-rolls ads and Google ads for this candidate’s campaign.
The results were amazing: 942,000 impressions of the campaign … and 288,000 video views.
If we use geo-targeting in 2020 to GOTV and spread our message, the results could be extraordinary.
But we need to start right now in order to stop the blue tsunami from gathering strength and size.
Essential 6: Win the Evangelical vote.
A war has been waged on Christianity in this country – against individual Christians, Christian values, homeschooling, churches, Christian businesses and more.
Conservatives, libertarians and Christians need to win the Evangelical vote with their pro-faith, pro-family and pro-freedom message.
This includes mobilizing the Evangelical voter.
Unfortunately, many Evangelicals do not vote. In fact, 45-55% of 80 million Evangelical voters do not vote.
Trump knew how to reach the Evangelicals in the 2016 election. He ran on a pro- life, pro-religious freedom platform that spoke to Christians who are opposed to abortion and coming under increasing attack for their faith.
And he won because of the advanced GOTV outreach he did to Evangelicals in key swing states.
Now, we need to educate Christians on how to vote from a Biblical worldview on core issues like abortion, the sanctity of life, Israel, helping the persecuted church and Christian civil liberties.
And, we need to help wake up pastors to speak out and speak up for family values.
One of the things I do to mobilize Evangelicals is to hold Election Forum events at churches to educate Christians on how to vote their values. In fact, 81% of Evangelicals will vote Republican, if motivated and instructed on how to vote.
The problem is, many of them don’t know how to vote, and don’t know what kind of an impact they can have on their city, state and nation.
The #1 thing to do that will completely transform the vote is church ballot harvesting.
Before the election, everyone brings the ballot. They fill it out (with a voter guide) and give it to the pastor to hand-deliver. 200–20,000 ballots can be done at one time!
Do Something – Be Proactive and Make a Difference

Jeffery Epstein declares open season on conspiracy theories

The big problem with Jeffrey Epstein’s “suicide” isn’t so much that the Clinton crime family rubbed out another witness, but that it undermines confidence in the legitimacy of government and law.  Let’s not be coy about it, this was a hit to silence a witness.  Epstein was famous for sex trafficking underage kids for the rich and powerful.  Bill Clinton, The Bubba of Scuzz took no fewer than 26 trips on Epstein’s Lolita Express, and Hillary, Huma in tow, six.  You can bet that three people were absolutely unsurprised by Epstein’s mysterious death, Bill, Hillary and Epstein himself; he had to have seen it coming.

Most people who follow politics and who are not rabid Clintonista Zombies know that the Clinton Crime Family is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg and that the reason they haven’t been brought to justice is that hours before testifying witnesses suffer from a sudden onset of Arkancide.  In the present instance the problem the Clinton’s have is that even though there  are no witnesses (yet) to Epstein’s death, his death is so untimely, so unlikely and so public that it serves as a flashing red arrow pointing at the Epstein associates with the most to lose.

Epstein’s death points not only to the most likely puppetmasters, but to the absolute inability of the organs of justice and law enforcement to protect a witness and carry out their most basic duties in the face of corrumpt political actors.  If someone as wealthy, famous and well connected cannot be protected then neither can any of the rest of us “little people” without those benefits.  The system has shown itself not only powerless, but corrupt and illegitimate.  The public cannot trust the police, the justice system or, by extension, any of the organs of government.

“We the People” as the source of power in government has been replaced by “The Shadowy, Anonymous Deep State”.   But power is not the same as legitimacy, as Hong Kong is demonstrating to the Chinese Communist government.  Government requires the consent of the governed, and the governed consent only so long as government plays by the rules the governed have agreed to, the social contract.  In the American system of government the governed grant legitimacy to the government on terms specified by the US Constitution.  The Constitution is the highest law in the land, and no one is above the law.

Except that some clearly deem themselves above the law.  Even though they don’t name themselves, don’t publicly declare their law exempt status and dutifully pay lip service to the law, their blatant disregard for and contempt of the law marks them as lawless.  All can see them flouting the law and suffering no consequences .

But a republic; the United States is a Constitutional Republic; is governed not by the will  of a single man, or a gang of powerful men, or a mob, but by  laws.  What citizen, up to this point an adherent of the law, can consider himself anything other than a chump for his fidelity?  Who can not think, if they can get away with it, why not me?  Why should I be the good boy when all around everyone else is getting away with murder?  To be believable not only must justice be done, it must be seen to be done.

For decades the Marxists have been successfully working a Gramscian strategy of demoralizing America, and more recently of destabilizing her, leading to a manufactured crisis that would enable a strong man to seize the reins of power at the citizen’s demand in order to “save” them.  But now those who have been groomed to power now find themselves abhorred by the people who should have acclaimed them.  And the culture is moving rapidly into crisis that now looks to have a different outcome than the one originally envisioned.

Red flag laws are evil

The recent shootings in El Paso and Dayton have once again brought out both America’s compassion for victims and the Left’s endless thirst to create more victims by disarming us.  Suddenly the left is pushing  “common sense solutions” that involve depriving us of our natural and Constitutional rights.

According to the Gun Violence Archive there have been 33,986 shooting incidents in the US this year with over 9,000 deaths and almost 18,000 injuries.  There have been over 1500 shootings in Chicago this year,  but because these are overwhelmingly non-whites slaughtering non-whites nobody gives a damn.  Similar numbers obtain for the most violent cities in the country: St. Louis, Baltimore, New Orleans, Detroit, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Los Angeles and the list goes on.  All are hotbeds of gun control and decades of Democrat only kleptocratic rule.  You don’t hear our self appointed moral superiors mentioning that either.

If these mighty hand wringers aren’t concerned about the welfare of the citizens, why the crocodile tears?  Because they fear that an armed citizenry would interfere with their plans to turn America into a one party collectivist totalitarian police state where Mao’s dictum “political power comes from the barrel of a gun” and they have all the guns.  These “common sense” measures; more background checks, more gun registrations, more ammo control and red flag laws; are more steps in that direction.

I grant you that these people who commit mass shootings are sick in the head, mentally ill.  For sure mental illness is huge problem in this country which too few people are trying to address.   Much of this was set up by LBJ’s Great Society which mandated the breakup of the family.  Daniel Patrick Moynihan wrote a scathing report about this in 1965 in which he lamented that out of wedlock births among the negro population had skyrocketed to 25%.  Today out of wedlock births to blacks is 78%, Latinos 53% and Whites 35%, which means that almost half the entire population is bereft of the civilizing influence of an intact family.

Something else that nobody wants to talk about is the fact that we have the Democrats to thank for all these loons wandering around, it was they who ended involuntary commitment on humanitarian and civil rights grounds and closed all the psych hospitals.  Deprived of places where they could be contained and cared for they wander our streets, incompetent, incontinent, unsupervised and self medicating on crack,meth and God knows what else.

These proposed Red Flag laws are designed to be abused.  A few years back we had the phenomenon of SWATing, in which an anonymous caller would call the police and report that someone at a given address was in the process of murdering a family member.  The police would send a SWAT team over, bust the door down and go in shooting.  Presumably under the Red Flag they would send the SWAT team over, ring the doorbell at 5AM and simply confiscate the victim’s guns.  So far only a few home owners have been shot.

Are you comforted yet?  Then how about this, if Leftist lunatics are willing to confront and dispense violence against MAGA hat wearers will they be more or less willing to call in a Red Flag report on some Deplorable they’ve taken a dislike to?  You get three guesses and the first two don’t count.  So you’d best be on your best behavior and keep your opinions to yourself because you never know when some self righteous commie snitch might call a Red Flag party at your house, and you’ll have no idea who it was, even if you survive it.  You might have your suspicions, and turn about is fair play, opening up an endless cycle of denunciation and retaliation.

Back in 2016 Trump quite properly ran against Red Flag laws.  Yesterday he said he was considering supporting them.  The GOP in Congress, quite predictably, has permitted itself to be stampeded into going along with the Commicrat’s calls for them.  Huh, you’d almost think they had no principles, including upholding and defending the Constitution they all swore to uphold and defend.  If some such federal law passes Congress, as seems  likely, and lands on the President’s desk, he might just sign it.  If he does that the Donks will take the White House in 2020.

Then it’s Кэти bar the door.

Truth will set you free

The Good Book tells us that the truth will set you free.  That it will first make you miserable is not much discussed save among those who recognize that they are not free and desperately wish to be so.  Shackles of the mind are always antecedent to shackles of the flesh.  Living in freedom is a constant discipline of crucifying the flesh, that is, subordinating it to the truth.  This is true for individuals and organizations from families, to companies, to nations.

The war that recently erupted between President Trump and Representative Cummings is happening precisely because Trump told a truth about Cummings’ district in Baltimore.  Baltimore is a disaster.  Upon hearing this, to no one’s surprise, Cummings and his cronies immediately got miserable.  The entire orchestra of wailing and gnashing of teeth is an exercise in attempting to silence, in this case, Trump the truth teller in preference to embracing the cross.

Embracing the cross means accepting responsibility, in the immortal words of W.C. Fields, “Take the bull by the tail and face the situation.”  Nobody likes that, and nobody likes that less than politicians, and among politicians none hate it so much as those who have colluded for years in creating, maintaining and amplifying  the situation.  Cummings and the Democrats had the chance, still have it, to admit the truth rather than fight to keep their cover from being pulled.

But Trump yanked the covers off Baltimore and now Baltimore, and Cummings and the Donks, are exposed to national humiliation.  Their first response was to restore their cover by crying Racism!  If you didn’t know it, racism is the new wolf.  All it really means is “I don’t like the truth you told so I’m going to call you names till I make you cry and run home because I don’t have a rational counter argument so I’ll pretend to be morally superior so shut up, you bad man.”  But Trump won’t cry, won’t run home and won’t shut up.

But even while the spotlight’s pitiless glare exposes the horror that is Baltimore the Left still tries to keep some part of the situation under wraps.  Dr. Ben Carson, Trump’s HHS Secretary, went to Baltimore to help continue to keep daylight shining in that dark and awful place.  NPR covered the story, but interestingly they left out part of Dr. Carson’s remarks.

Dr. Carson suggested that an important part of the solution to Baltimore’s problems should be handled at the individual level.  But his recommendation doesn’t fit the Narrative that 1. Government is the solution for every problem and 2. the values of the sexual revolution are the only  values.   Here is Dr. Carson’s solution to poverty that anyone can work on the individual level:

1. Finish High School.

2. Get married.

3. Don’t have children until you have accomplished #2.

This is what needs to be promoted in our schools.  Instead we have the LGBQT-whatever-the-hell agenda being shoved down everybody’s throat.  Yes, it promises easy and consequence free sex – but it is a trap and a train wreck for the individual and for society.

NPR, a wholly owned subsidiary of Commies-R-Us, doesn’t want us to know the fundamental truth of happiness in this life: the disciplines of accomplishment, faithful love, and family.

Deep State attempts a CYA

Over at Market Ticker Denninger has an interesting piece on the use of state intelligence organs as covert political muscle used against Republicans in general and the candidacy and administration of Donald Trump.  Now that their cover has been pulled they are in panic mode (which is not so different from business as usual, truth to tell), especially given that having failed to bring down the King (metaphorically speaking) they realize that the King will bring them down in turn.

So of course they are trying to protect themselves.

It’s not stopping with the 2016 election and its results either.  There is a little-discussed provision being attached to defense and intelligence bills in Congress right nowthat would criminalize disclosure of any CIA “asset’s” identity.  There already is such a law but it has an expiration date of five years after said asset leaves the covert service.  This one has no expiration date and is insanely broad. I don’t think I need to go into how damning such a “law” would be; beyond potentially immunizing any CIA involvement in the 2016 election (of which there probably was much) it could conceivably be construed to cover Epstein and all of those who participated in the******of the girls being trafficked — including, quite possibly, those now in positions of political power.

This needs to be run to the ground and exposed all the way up and down the line.  If it’s a handful of people inside these agencies who were responsible for this and it was not a decapitation strike aimed at the Republican Party, orchestrated throughout these agencies and in fact reaching all the way to the White House, then everyone involved need to be in prison, right now, and everyone associated with them asset-stripped to their literal underwear.

Unfortunately the preponderance of the evidence is rapidly piling up on the other side — this was not a handful of partisans in various agencies but instead was a coordinated, agency-wide attempt to prevent the lawful election of a President they did not like and when it happened anyway their actions continued in the form of felonies so serious that they in fact have destroyed the legitimacy of government itself.  Worse, they’re now trying to cover it up and gain immunity for their criminal acts.

If this turns out to be what it appears to be we just had a modern rehash of Lexington and Concord, April 19th of 1775 and the world now awaits our judgment as a body politic.  Will we acquiesce to our new status as A Banana Republic with nuclear weapons or will the people of this nation draft a second document that begins with those seven immortal words: When In The Course of Human Events.

It might not be a bad idea to pass this around and call your Congresss critter to let him/her/it know that they are not invisible and that there will be consequences.  You might also call the White House and urge President Trump to stand against this outrage.  Which will be hard to do as this is attached to military funding and will hurt our men and women in uniform – and their families – the most.

I’m back

Murphy turned in a star performance and despite it all succeeded in wiping out seven years of work and over 1,500 posts.  Poof!  Just like that.  Only three things do do: weep, drink, start over.  Leo, my friend on the right, is the new mascot, mostly because like me he has a big mouth and has the hair – and fleas – I lack.

I’m keeping the RCFoothills at gmail dot com email account as I already have it and it works.  The transition from RCOTF to GBRA is complete and this site is now independent of both those fine organizations.

More to come.
