Dominic Foppoli’s Statements and Actions

An Investigative Series by The Chief

Reader Warning: This series will contain graphic details of rape, racism, sexual assault, and straight up deplorable behavior by Dominic Foppoli and his colleagues who covered for him.  Reader discretion is advised.

Dominic Foppoli has had a rough couple of weeks. Depending on who you talk to, like this blog, you are probably on the growing side of those who hope Dominic gets what he deserves, while others are choosing to stand with Dominic. 

We will unpack his actions since the SF Chronicle ran its story, his presiding over a Council Meeting, and his statements regarding fellow Councilmember Esther Lemus in this installment.

As we detailed so far, 4 women reported his “actions” to the San Francisco Chronicle, another woman came forward with her story shortly after, then a bombshell dropped.  Esther Lemus, a city council member and deputy district attorney with Sonoma County, came forward with her statement as detailed already in this space.  Dominic being the slimy politician he is, issued this whopper of a statement: 

“Despite the clear political and social machinations that are outwardly and obviously driving the effort to put my head on a spike, I never imagined I would be pursued as a trophy to warn those who dare to have a positive impact in public service regardless of ideology,” Foppoli wrote.

Mayor of Windsor accuses council member of assault

Ah yes, the martyr-in-chief, his honor Dominic Foppoli, rushing to the tried-and-true defense of attacking the critic.  Even though all the stories were the same, his exuding dominance, pouring way too much alcohol, and likely using a date rape drug, its Dominic who is the victim.  I guess in some weird way his brain must think the campaign intern shouldn’t have fought back, and how he was doing “the Lord’s work” by exorcizing her virginity twice in the same night, after repeated calls to stop!  He likely feels the victim of not being able to enjoy sex with Sophia Williams, who fought off this coward of a human.  Dominic, take it from me, life is full of disappointments, and this ain’t the actions of a gentleman you Neanderthal.  Crashing a party you had no business at just because it was taking place at your winery’s guest house is peak you Dominic, and forcing 2 of your employees to remove their underwear?  Yeah, you are some victim.  The girl you met in Reno and tried to act out your perverse sexual fantasy on while she was blacked out…you must have been deprived.  Too bad she came too and stopped you from going further.  Handcuffing your girlfriend to your bed, and sticking grapes up her vaginal orifice when she is pleading with you to stop doesn’t make you a victim.  IT MAKES YOU A MONSTER.  I guess you were also the victim in the case of the young intern who worked at your winery, her crime was wanting to learn more about wine, you wanted to explore what was under her jeans.  You failed, Dominic.  You are no victim, these heroic women fought you off the best they could, the situation was not fair, you had them liquored up and drugged up, a serious crime in California.  It doesn’t make you a victim Dominic, it makes you a rapist, a sexual assault predator, and a disgusting creep.  How about find some women your own age and I don’t know maybe don’t sexually assault them?

But Dominic wasn’t done yet. He knew a much bigger story was coming, this one from a fellow councilmember.  So, he acted like any “victim” would, check out this verbal diarrhea he spouted out “this admitted cheat clearly will go to any lengths imaginable to advance her political career and get what she wants – power.”

“I am not saying I am a victim or claiming a “me to” moment for myself or for men in general. That idea is ridiculous,” Foppoli said in the statement. 

“Mrs. Lemus has led the charge in asking for my resignation and it wasn’t until I defended myself and told the truth regarding these manufactured and baseless accusations against me that she showed the degree in which she is, at the very least, complicit in the witch hunt driven by these continuing attempts at assassinating my character,” Foppoli said.

Ok, so Dominic claims a female sexually assaulted him, and put him into compromising positions?  Mrs. Lemus works as a deputy District Attorney as we mentioned earlier, her statement will be repeated here:

What Lemus said she does remember is attending a Windsor Boys & Girls Club crab feed in February 2020, during which she got up at one point and returned to learn from Foppoli’s then-girlfriend that he had refilled her glass. There was dancing and music, and then Lemus, Foppoli, his girlfriend and another male friend, whom she declined to identify, stopped by a brewpub before going home. Lemus’ husband had left earlier.

At some point, Lemus learned later, she left the group and was found outside becoming violently ill. The two men then left Foppoli’s girlfriend at the pub to drive Lemus home, but they were gone so long the girlfriend finally walked home, she later told Lemus.

Lemus, 48, was becoming ill again as she arrived home, and went into the bathroom. At one point she sat on the bathtub to remove her shoes, and fell in.

The next morning, she awoke on the couch, nude, with a small towel placed on her and the growing fear that she had been sexually violated.

But Lemus said she does not remember even leaving the crab feed. When she called Foppoli’s girlfriend the next day to find out what had happened to her, the woman said Foppoli had told her “he put me to bed, tucked me in or something,” Lemus said.

She said she cannot recall what happened inside her home. She was in pain and had rectal bleeding when she awoke, she said. She said she believes she was raped and sodomized while unconscious by Foppoli and/or the other man who drove her home. She said the experience of feeling drugged in his presence — that night and during a second assault that she said happened six months later at Foppoli’s winery — prompted her belief he was responsible.

The second incident occurred in August 2020 when she attended a gathering at Foppoli’s winery. She said Foppoli had inexplicably taken her phone and keys much earlier in the night. She later experienced the same cloudy disorientation and amnesia that she had felt after the February crab feed. She said she recalls being led off by a man Foppoli had just introduced to her, saying his friend “liked me,” and finding herself engaged in oral copulation in the tasting room.

She was next aware of falling and hurting herself some place, which Foppoli would later tell her was a vineyard. She later became violently ill. She eventually woke up and drove home.

Windsor Mayor Dominic Foppoli, council member Esther Lemus accuse each other of sexual misconduct
Esther Lemus

Dominic you finally did it, you met your match, and you know it.  Like a true monster, you blamed a woman whom you allegedly drugged/intoxicated and likely raped or sodomized.  Instead, you left her with just a small towel covering her, what an absolute coward you are.  You panicked and called for her to step down from her career as ADA with the Sonoma Prosecutor office.  If you had any brain cells you would know, not a soul in that office could prosecute you, due to obvious conflict of interest laws.  Hence the California Attorney General has taken over. Again, your lack of functioning brain cells is hurting you here.  The AG does not care about any of your connections in Sonoma County you may be wealthy and powerful, but you are not above the law. 

Getting back to your actions; you for some reason decided to chair the meeting when a motion was going to come up asking for your resignation.  I tuned in, and my comments will be brief.  First thank you to the hundreds of folks who called in and dragged Dominic.  Dominic appeared to look intoxicated or on a drug of some type, sweating profusely and looking beady eyed at the camera.  He tried to exude dominance by calling on each caller, telling some to unmute, and telling others “thank you.”  Your act got old, and you realized it about an hour into the meeting. You were being dragged to filth by every caller, you were called a rapist, folks said they hate you, and also told more times than I could count to F*** Off.”  Then like the coward you are, you tried to sign off the call, prompting fellow enabler Deb Fudge to call the question on demanding you to resign.  The motion carried 2-1, Esther being an adult recused herself from the meeting under conflict-of-interest laws, you wouldn’t provide such concessions.  You signed off after, leaving Deb Fudge, and Sam Salmon (I won’t call them councilmembers, they enabled you, more on them in another installment) to pick up the pieces and continue the meeting.  Dominic it’s very obvious you are a narcissistic sociopath. Your blank stare said it all. You’re pure evil. Watch the tape, Dominic.  The dragging continued even after you left, Dominic your entire town hates you.  Please step down, you are causing so much unneeded attention to a town you claim to love.  Laugh at a recall all you want, but your political career is on fire and this will be a blow-out loss for you.

Up next will be the folks covering for Dominic, it’s a bomb shell report!

Blogger commentary:  The cockroaches are scrambling since this blog shined some light on the situation. Folks this blog averages 25 – 60 hits on a given article and we do not promote it on social media in any form.  However, I received a call from a concerned political operative Sunday AM, and coincidentally by mid evening the blog had over 900 hits, far exceeding our average. Clearly someone on social media is interested in Dominic’s malfeasance. We even had a lawyer threaten a cease-and-desist in the comment thread, rather than contacting the editor in chief directly.  I do not know many lawyers working on a Sunday afternoon. Even stranger was the lawyer found our blog when we didn’t mention his client’s last name.  To the political operative, I certainly hope you are not passing info along to the campaign being orchestrated by Mr. Foppoli or any associate of his, as it has come to our attention, he is running an intimidation campaign in Windsor as we speak.  I am giving you a chance to go on record. We will redact your name and you can remain anonymous, but we here at the blog find it very hard to believe when our articles don’t come up on a Google search yet we get 900 page views. You will not silence this blog or this blogger. 

To the women out there who saw this article, if you were assaulted, raped, harassed, or even just have a story to tell, reach out to us.  We will connect you to someone who will help you get a measure of justice that is independent of anyone associated with our blog. We will give you a phone number and that’s it. If you want to share your story less your name, you may. Any woman brave enough to step forward is a true rock star. If you think you are alone, believe me, you are not. The number of victims that have come forward thus far is much greater than the six previously mentioned in media reports.  Reach out, Dominic is a disgusting creep, a rapist, and a sexual predator.

The Women Foppoli Sexually Assaulted/Raped

An Investigative Series by The Chief

Reader Warning: This series will contain graphic details of rape, racism, sexual assault, and straight up deplorable behavior by Dominic Foppoli and his colleagues who covered for him.  Reader discretion is advised.

In addition to my experience, Dominic was accused of sexual assault and rape by these women who were brave enough to go on the record sans 1 or 2 to the SF Chronical.

In 2003 Foppoli had aspirations at the young age of 21 to be the youngest person elected to the CA Assembly.  He met an 18-year-old who volunteered for his campaign; he knew the family through his church.  The girl said she admired his conservative values and catholic faith; she was looking for an unpaid campaign position.  Foppoli and his female campaign manager decided the best place for an 18-year-old girl, was personal assistant to the candidate.  Yep, read that again folks, 21-year-old candidate, and an 18-year-old female would be his assistant. He took advantage of her, who would have thought?  He groped and fondled her twice, leading her to break up with him shortly after Foppoli lost the GOP primary for his campaign.  On December 31 of that same year, he convinced her to go out with him to “ring in the New Year” one last time.  She reluctantly agreed. While out that evening Dominic and Liam pressured her to drink champagne. If you aren’t a drinker or are a “rookie in the drinking game” champagne will get you very sick and inebriated quite quickly, also make note of her age 18.    Dominic drove her back to his house, groped her buttocks, and tried to pull her skirt down, she fought back, even saying she was “on her period” it didn’t stop him, he raped her and whilst doing so she turned her head and threw up over the bed.  She woke up later with Dominic raping her again.  He drove her home in the morning, joking about how they were both drunk.  She was 18.

Dominic in 2006 met Sophia Williams at a junior college while taking a dance class.  Sophia was typically his dance partner, but as is customary, you danced with one another’s partners in this class.  Keep in mind this was a social gathering type atmosphere, but also a class, for… you know adults.  My source told me Dominic wore out his welcome quickly, he always wanted to dance with the better-looking girls, and was extremely handsy, and loved touching the lower back, and arm pit area.  No one wanted to dance with him eventually.  Sophia and a few friends hung out with Dominic at a dance club after class. They drank quite a large amount of booze, she wanted to get a cab, Dominic called Uber.  They both stumbled into the back seat. It wasn’t until most of the way through the ride she realized they weren’t going to her place first; it was straight to Dominic’s place.  Dominic offered her his bed, and he would take the floor. (Remind anyone of his same playbook from the dorm room earlier?)  She crashed on the bed, Dominic climbing in behind her, he put his hand down her pants, she fought him off.  He used leverage to pin her against the wall, she broke free, and locked herself in his bathroom until morning when a friend could safely pick her up. 

Prior to 2012, Dominic became very active in a group for young professionals called Active 20-30.  He was a big wig in the all men’s Santa Rosa chapter.  A short time after, his reputation became one of “toxic masculinity.” He was known as a big partier and loved pouring drinks for others.  He had a well-known reputation for paling around with much younger women, an allegation that gets much creepier after you leave college.  At a convention of these young professionals in Reno, Dominic found his next victim.  Allison Britton was having fun like any other young person in Reno, drinking, gambling, and enjoying herself…maybe a little too much, but we all have likely been there.  Visibly intoxicated, Britton’s friends had asked Dominic to take her back to her room, Dominic took her back to his room.  She passed out, she came to with her top off, on her knees in his hotel room bathroom with his Johnson in her mouth.  Terrified she wanted to know what was going on, all Dominic could say is “can I finish on your chest.”  Britton learned later she drank more alcohol with Dominic and that his roommate was fast asleep in the bed next to his while this all went down.  Shortly thereafter a list of top ten things not to do in Active 20-30 included get this: Dominic Foppoli.

A fourth women came forward named Rose Fomuso. She was a winery intern at Dominic’s Christopher Creek Winery, and an exchange student from France to boot.  She wanted to learn the finer points of winemaking and served in the tasting room. Toward the end of her stay, Foppoli threw a large party. Dominic of course made sure she was invited.  During the evening she fell ill, even though she consumed a “normal amount of alcohol for her.”  Dominic wanted to show her his white Tesla. She got in, he started the car, drove her around, and tried to rape her.  Her internship having been finished, she returned to France, telling her coordinators not to send anyone to Christopher Creek again.  She too claims to have been drugged by Dominic.

A fifth women, Shannon McCarthy, came out and said she was sexually abused during a relationship with Dominic from 2001-2004.  More of the same, copious amounts of liquor, and not knowing when to stop or hold off.  She was forced by Dominic into oral copulation more times than she wants to recall, and once Dominic handcuffed her to the bed, raping her of course.

Dominic was also accused by a woman who stayed at the guesthouse on his winery property of sexual assault as well.  The details were a little foggy on this one, but it involved Dominic inviting himself to dinner and joining a few women in a hot tub.  Dominic refilled the wine glasses, seems to be his “go to move” and while getting his guests intoxicated, he attempted to remove their bikini bottoms.  Foppoli also had a couple of his employees there, he instructed them to remove their underwear and don bed sheets to be worn as a toga.  What an absolute sick fuck this guy is!

The 6th and definitely not last accuser is fellow councilmember Esther Lemus, who doubles as a deputy DA in the District Attorney’s Office.  I will let her words tell the story….

Esther Lemus

What Lemus said she does remember is attending a Windsor Boys & Girls Club crab feed in February 2020, during which she got up at one point and returned to learn from Foppoli’s then-girlfriend that he had refilled her glass. There was dancing and music, and then Lemus, Foppoli, his girlfriend and another male friend, whom she declined to identify, stopped by a brewpub before going home. Lemus’ husband had left earlier.

At some point, Lemus learned later, she left the group and was found outside becoming violently ill. The two men then left Foppoli’s girlfriend at the pub to drive Lemus home, but they were gone so long the girlfriend finally walked home, she later told Lemus.

Lemus, 48, was becoming ill again as she arrived home, and went into the bathroom. At one point she sat on the bathtub to remove her shoes, and fell in.

The next morning, she awoke on the couch, nude, with a small towel placed on her and the growing fear that she had been sexually violated.

But Lemus said she does not remember even leaving the crab feed. When she called Foppoli’s girlfriend the next day to find out what had happened to her, the woman said Foppoli had told her “he put me to bed, tucked me in or something,” Lemus said.

She said she cannot recall what happened inside her home. She was in pain and had rectal bleeding when she awoke, she said. She said she believes she was raped and sodomized while unconscious by Foppoli and/or the other man who drove her home. She said the experience of feeling drugged in his presence — that night and during a second assault that she said happened six months later at Foppoli’s winery — prompted her belief he was responsible.

The second incident occurred in August 2020 when she attended a gathering at Foppoli’s winery. She said Foppoli had inexplicably taken her phone and keys much earlier in the night. She later experienced the same cloudy disorientation and amnesia that she had felt after the February crab feed. She said she recalls being led off by a man Foppoli had just introduced to her, saying his friend “liked me,” and finding herself engaged in oral copulation in the tasting room.

She was next aware of falling and hurting herself some place, which Foppoli would later tell her was a vineyard. She later became violently ill. She eventually woke up and drove home.

Dominic Foppoli: How I learned he was Scum

An Investigative Series by The Chief

Reader Warning: This series will contain graphic details of rape, racism, sexual assault, and straight up deplorable behavior by Dominic Foppoli and his colleagues who covered for him.  Reader discretion is advised.

This is the second in my series on Dominic Foppoli. This installment talks about my interaction with Dominic while in college.

I was a freshman at college. The year was 2005 and I was in roughly the middle of my first semester.  I lived on campus and did not have a car.  I had joined the Young Republican club even though Marin County was so blue due to my wanting to be involved.  Our leader was an upperclassman named Dominic, he seemed like a nice enough guy; but came off as a Mitt Romney type who was more concerned with impressing people than governing or leading.  After our second meeting, he asked if I wanted to go with him to a fundraiser for a local who was running for Assembly. I declined since, well what college student has money, let alone money to donate.  He told me it was free, and almost demanded and guilt tripped me to come along.  I did, against my better judgment, as I literally had just met him.

We climbed into his Chevy Tahoe and present were 3 freshman females. I quickly figured out he needed me as a freshman to make this seem legit.  We went off to the fundraiser.  Dominic made a point to ditch me at the door; however, he stayed very close to all 3 females.  Next thing I knew, they were all drinking wine, being poured by the host, a candidate running for Assembly named Carolyn Patrick.  The fundraiser took place in Sausalito at the home of what I would characterize as a very wealthy donor.  I was offered wine, to which I declined. I was merely 18 and honestly didn’t know where I was and didn’t want to get anyone in trouble.  However, I eventually had a glass put in front of me, and was told drink up, you’re not driving anyways.  I retreated to a balcony to be with my female friends who were invited and all 3 were uncomfortable.  The night wore on, and I could have sworn my glass was never empty, almost like Dominic was filling up the glasses of all 4 of us unexpectedly.

Because he was.

After leaving that party at around 10 pm, he decided we were going to keep the party going over at a financier’s business located conveniently an exit or two up from my college near San Rafael.  We entered Paul Financial LLC and made our way to the second floor. Dominic called a childhood friend named Liam.  Liam came armed with a large bottle of Jack Daniels and a liter or two of coke.  We proceeded to play spin the bottle and truth or dare.  Immediately I knew this was wrong as the two of them (Liam and Dominic) made sure their “dares” involved 1 or more of the 3 inebriated women.  I spent a great deal of time in the bathroom re-visiting my dinner from several hours earlier.

Dominic finally called the party off at 3 am and drove us back to campus.  I made my way to my dorm and noticed the 2 females and Dominic were following me.  When I got to my room, Dominic said they were too drunk and was he asking if they could sleep in the 2 unoccupied beds belonging to my absent roommates.  I agreed. Dominic got into 1, the girls into the other.  I spent most of the night throwing up, and when I came too,  I noticed Dominic was in the bed with the other two girls, appearing as though he forced his way in.  I woke them all up, the girls seemed revolted, I said my roommates were coming back and they had to leave.  One girl commented to the other her bra strap was undone, and the other saying her pants were mysteriously unbuttoned.  Both questioned Mr. Foppoli who continued to filibuster saying everyone was drunk and it could have been any of us.  It seemed odd for A. Dominic to sleep on campus, and B. to put himself in a situation where he would wake up between 2 females in a twin sized bed.

Or does it?

At the chow hall for dinner me and the 3 girls reconvened. We tried to put the pieces of the night back together.  We all agreed on one thing, Dominic had a motive and bringing me with him was just trying to make the girls more comfortable.  We all remembered different parts of the night, but one thing we all remembered was Dominic insisting all 4 of us drink wine from glasses he poured in a different part of the house.  We agreed he spiked the drinks with some sort of date rape drug due to the severe headaches and vomiting we all suffered from.  When walking back to my dorm, our Resident Assistant asked me how I felt, to which I said fine. She proceeded to warn me about Dominic and said his friend Liam stayed in our room as well, he was let in by Dominic later that night/morning.  She also warned that the 3 of us freshmen appeared highly intoxicated bordering on black out drunk, but Dominic seemed more than happy with the situation.

Closing:  While I do not know what happened that night, I also know none of my 3 friends pursued anything with law enforcement. I do know after that semester, 2 transferred and the other did the same after the year concluded.  Knowing what I know now and after sharing the next parts in the series, I know for a fact Dominic drugged all 4 of us, that was his point.  I know he had his way with both girls that night, his friend likely joining in the fun.  I also believe Dominic never intended to wake up in that bed that morning, he was supposed to be gone, leaving me to answer the questions about what happened, and pick up the pieces how 2 intoxicated girls who felt violated during their sleep woke up in various state’s of undress in a friends dorm room.  Fortunately for me, Dominic had no use for me after that night. He largely ignored me and I’m ok with that. I found it very creepy that someone closer to 23 years old was palling around with 18 year olds; especially someone who fancied himself wealthy, powerful, and relevant on the political scene.

It gets even better in the next part folks….

Windsor CA Mayor Dominic Foppoli: Total Scum

An Investigative Series by The Chief

Reader Warning: This series will contain graphic details of rape, racism, sexual assault, and straight up deplorable behavior by Dominic Foppoli and his colleagues who covered for him.  Reader discretion is advised.

He is a small town mayor who came from money. I went to college with him and while I only knew Dominic for a year, I was done with him after one semester.  This initial blog will sum up a stunning fall from grace for an aspiring young man.

Foppoli can be described as an awkward, dork of a male who was tall and full of himself.  He was balanced out by coming from money; his family was in the wine business in Windsor for generations.  Like most, money can get you pretty far. In the case of Foppoli, his real vice was not just wine, but women, women far his junior.  He had a quick assent to become mayor of a Napa Valley community and had his eyes on bigger prizes; but a bombshell report from the San Francisco Chronicle has ended his career, possibly 2 fellow councilmembers careers, and maybe even the chief of police. 

Foppoli was named as the man who raped a campaign intern 2 separate times, raped/assaulted a fellow active 20-30 member, sexually assaulted a guest staying at the guesthouse of his winery, and twice raping an intern at his winery.  Most recently a fellow councilmember came out and announced Foppoli sexually assaulted, and sodomized or raped her.  This council member works for the District Attorney as a deputy DA.

I did quite a bit of research and made contact with a few folks regarding Foppoli. I will lay out the details in this series.  Let’s just say that this is a tale of typical political scum who likely will be doing a perp walk soon.  My hope is when I name names, others will be held accountable for coving up, or ignoring his crimes.

Democrats Want to Punish Jorge Riley and Other Veterans

Arizona Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego announced a proposal Friday to strip benefits for active or retired military members who participated in the Capitol Riot on January 6, according to Stars and Stripes.

Gallego wrote a letter to the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Secretary Denis McDonough and other top military officials March 18, stating, “Unfortunately, many veterans led or participated in this insurrection. Reporting suggests that nearly 20% of the insurrectionists were either veterans or military retirees, including some of the most violent members of the mob.

Congressman Calls For Veterans, Servicemen Who Stormed Capitol To Be Stripped Of Benefits

Any veteran or service member who stormed the Capitol on January 6 forfeited their moral entitlement to privileged benefits at the expense of the people of the United States,” the letter read.

“I ask you to quickly identify, investigate, and prosecute any active service member or retiree that participated in the attack under the jurisdiction of the Uniform Code of Military Justice,” Gallego said.

Folks, I have strong feelings on this idea. As readers should know, I am a veteran. Here is a little background before I address the Congressman’s idea.

Buried in the bowels of my enlistment contract is a clause that I was subject to recall to active duty until I reached the age of 55 even though I never had to serve a day in the Reserves—Active or Inactive. So yes, the government, in special circumstances, does have a limited claim on military personnel even after they are discharged.

Also, I did take an oath to protect and defend the country of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. Actually, I’ve taken that oath many times as both an elected official and a service member. Funny thing is, I was never released from that oath, either as a military member or an office holder.

So, when I read this article, it makes me mad for a number of reasons. First, the Democrat Party is the home of the domestic enemies of the United States. Look at what that Party stands for: they hate God, limited government, life, they welcome racists and racism, they are all about the color of people’s skins and not the content of their character, they oppose hard work and passing an inheritance to your grandchildren, they protect the guilty and punish the innocent, they oppose self-defense, demonize law enforcement, embrace tyranny, hate the Constitution, our Founders, and our history.

Given the oath that we veterans have taken, and the election fraud used to keep Democrats in power, I can fully understand that many veterans were in Washington D.C. on January 6th. Do I believe that what happened was an insurrection? NO. Remarkably, despite claims this was an armed event, no one in officer or law enforcement has yet to prove a single firearm was taken into the Capitol Building let alone used in an attempt to overthrow the government. It does appear that folks did not properly enter the building but for the most part, the worst they are guilt of is trespassing or something similar. Folks like buffalo boy and Jorge behaved stupidly by going into places that they shouldn’t like the House floor and Pelosi’s office. Had they stayed in public areas, much of the drama on that day would not have occurred.

Congressman Gallego is just pandering for some publicity. Invoking the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) is laughable [for reasons that I will explain in a moment] and meant only to impress the uninformed masses. There is no legal precedent to do what he is suggesting. Oops, he is a Democrat so when has the law even been an impedance to what they do?

Many parts of the UCMJ are not followed by the military except as a tool for selective enforcement. Here’s a few examples. Ever seem a sailor with a tattoo? Per the letter of the UCMJ, a tattoo is forbidden, allegedly as the destruction of government property. Although this policy has softened over the years.

Adultery is forbidden. As is homosexuality, at least until Obama was in office. The UCMJ covers many moral areas which are routinely not enforced. My point being that the UCMJ is being softened by the civilian government and not the military. The trend is away from enforcing many provisions and making the military, …well less military.

Sorry Congressman but attempting to use the UCMJ is a nonstarter in my eyes. Secondly, I know of no possible way that the military can touch the life of a discharged veteran or retired person. Gallegos wants to waive a magic wand and take away veteran benefits? Sorry dude. Whatever happens in the civilian world, we earned the benefits. Even veterans in prison can get benefits from the Veteran’s Administration.

After a diligent Internet search, it looks like the Congressman has this in mind:

Can A Veteran Receive Retired Military Pay While In Prison?

Generally, yes. Being convicted of a crime almost never jeopardizes a federal pension – the rare exception to this rule are charges relating to criminal disloyalty to the United States: espionage, treason, sabotage, etc.

Incarcerated Veterans

Sorry Congressman but what happened on January 6th falls way short of “espionage, treason, sabotage”. Jorge Riley and others have been charged with many things, but none come close to the threshold needed to go after veteran’s benefits.

The truth is that most veterans and other folks in Washington D.C. on January 6th were peaceful. If the veterans were wanting to overthrow the government do you really think they’d bring their wives and children to help?

If that doesn’t help then try this, the purpose of the military is to kill people and break things. Since the evil veterans on January 6th didn’t come properly prepared with vests, guns, and other military stuff, then how were they planning to overthrow the government? Harsh pronouns and colorful metaphors?

This is just another attempt to use the power of the Federal Government to attack Trump supporters that believe that the Democrats cheated yet again and get publicity at the same time. Such selective enforcement is tyranny and doing it retroactively is doubly so.

Jorge Riley is a Dumpster Fire

Unbeknownst to anyone who actually cares about the pathetic life of Jorge Riley, apparently, he is out of custody and back in Sacramento.  Yes, he is out of custody. I found this out yesterday.  Jorge, as you may recall, was arrested by the FBI (yeah, as in federal crime not state or local) during the “insurrection at the Capital” back in January.  Riley was in custody with no bail, until about the end of February, then he was extradited to DC.  Apparently, a judge in DC bought his line of crap of being a combat veteran with PTSD and having no money. 

Blogger commentary:  Jorge was in the military, I cannot speak to his service, but a couple of veterans that I know refute his take on combat service.  Riley intentionally keeps himself under or unemployed to leach off taxpayers; unlike the editorial board of this blog.  This is to avoid court ordered support of his “children,” as for how many the world may never know. 

Last I heard from an officer friend of mine, he is facing 2 misdemeanors and a felony for striking a child of his recently.  He also is a heavy drinker, as detailed in past blogs, as well as a narcotics user.  My officer friend says likely cocaine or meth, due to his skin/looks seeming far older than he really is.  With no money or job, how does he keep his habit of drinking at events and using narcotics going you ask.  Easy Answer!

His enablers.

After being released and told not to leave the country, Jorge flew back to California. My sources say Bill Cardoza footed the bill, no shock.  I would say iron sharpens iron but neither of these two possess an IQ in positive territory.  He recently attended a recall Newsom event. Give his recent past, while I guess that’s not a crime since it’s an open rally/protest; however, it’s a rough look.  Even rougher is his giving an interview to a former central committee member of Sac County who is a current member of the Proud Boys and was recently expelled from said GOP committee.  Couldn’t he find, I don’t know, anyone else to video tape the interview? 

Oh, this interview is pure Jorge Riley gold folks. On camera, he admits to “rubbing his butt on Nasty Pelosi’s desk.”  Actually, he says “may or may not have”, but in today’s media and court system, you better believe they are adding another charge, to his pending charging documents.  I am sure his lawyer is thrilled.  Most people get out of jail and do not wish to go back, apparently Riley misses it so much he wants to book a longer stay by nixing any chance for a concurrent sentence  and insuring  a consecutive one.  Hotels may be open with minimal occupancy, but as an attorney friend of mine will say “there is always a vacancy at the Blue Roof Inn aka Jail.” 

Oh, remember those media reports that we said were bogus about Riley leaving the California Republican Assembly in shame following his arrest for storming the nation’s Capital? Well, we now have proof, as if we needed any more, courtesy of Riley and his enabler Cardoza.

Let’s have a gander at another event Riley “showed up” to.  I use air quotes because there is no way he didn’t know in advance and if I were a betting man, I would lay heavy odds Bill “the Wookie” Cardoza moved the regular meeting of the Sacramento Republican Assembly to make sure they could have Riley as their keynote speaker. 

Riley’s leadership has brought such attention to the organization that he was presented with an award for his longevity of service as chapter president. Lest you forgot, Riley was SRA President and a statewide CRA Board member on January 6th. Yeah, check this award out. 

Thank you for your leadership as president of the Sacramento Republican Assembly Jorge Riley 2015 – 2021

If it’s really gold, I got a feeling it’ll soon be pawned off, melted down, or sold for scrap to fuel his addiction to drugs and alcohol.  Shame it won’t be around to be admitted into evidence at his trial. 

Below is a photo that was taken during the night’s festivities. I can picture his time at the podium prior to the presentation. Likely Riley told stories of violating Speaker Pelosi’s office, fighting his cellmates, disrespecting officers, and stories of his multiple court outbursts. Proudly standing shoulder-to-shoulder with him in the photo below are 2 lawyers licensed by the California State Bar Association.  Said Bar is not to be confused with the watering hole Riley is used to patronizing.  The lawyers in question are Sue Blake, a former Sac CRA President and past Chair of Sacramento Republican Party, and Tom Hudson former CRA Statewide President and Placer County Republican Party leader.

Local SRA and California Republican Assembly (CRA) leaders gathered to pay tribute to Jorge for both his service on the SRA as well as the CRA board of directors. From left, 8th SRA President Angela Azevedo, Immediate Past CRA President Tom Hudson, CRA National Committeeman Bill Cardoza (me), 4th SRA President Russell Gray, current and 15th SRA President Dr. Justin Hardcastle, 7th SRA President Sue Blake, and current SRA Vice President Todd Freeman who also served as SRA’s 2nd and 3rd vice president. — Bill Cardoza Facebook page 03/09/2021

This speaks to enablement. Folks, I am sorry, but Sue and Tom know better.  They may claim to be tax lawyers not criminal lawyers, but they had no business in that photo or at that meeting.  First Blake hasn’t been an attending member in about a decade, so she showed up only to pay homage to Riley.  Hudson knows better and knew of all Riley’s acts, again enabling.  Hudson is immediate past president of the statewide California Republican Assembly—as such a sitting Board member of CRA— [per recent media reports, CRA allegedly ejected Riley which clearly is a lie]. Angela Azevedo came out of the woodwork to support Riley. Again, someone who had a career in the corrections arm of the state government and should know better.  In fact, all four enablers listed above (Blake, Cardoza, Hudson, Azevedo) are career state employees living off the taxpayer’s dime.

Bill Cardoza, well he put it all together and is again running for National Committeeman of the CRA.  Facepalm!

The problem Jorge has is that the drugs and alcohol have destroyed his health, and this will destroy his life, if it hasn’t already.  These folks are not your friends Jorge. They are using you like the parent who uses their child to “re-live their glory years.”  You may not be able to help yourself Jorge, but you are looking at about 15-20 years in a federal lockup.  Try remorsefulness for a change. Stay out of politics and try to right a few wrongs you have had in your life.  Jorge the FBI wants you. The scariest arm of the federal government not named the IRS is looking to bury you. You are in real trouble. 

In the past, you always got your way at CRA, CAGOP, or Sac GOP meetings because Sue, Tom, Bill, and others covered for you.  You screamed, shouted, interrupted, pouted, and muttered things incoherently and you were never told, “No”.  These folks are not your friends and will abandon you as you leave the courtroom in handcuffs.  Rest assured this video you made and the photos you took will be coming to a courtroom near you very quickly. I hope you get another stimulus check because a return trip to DC will be cheaper and more enjoyable on your own dime rather than if you ditch court.  I can’t say for sure, but I think a federal chartered airplane won’t have flight attendants serving booze.

Sue, Bill, Tom and others, you may be lawyers (sans Bill) and work for powerful people, but your unfettered allegiance to Jorge has me questioning why I ever got involved in politics with people of your caliber.  You are all truly the lowest of the low.  None of you are above the law and I wish you were required to testify as to why you support that sack of trash Jorge.  Watching you squirm would be out and out fun, seeing you try to bob and weave, or plead negligence would be funny.  Frankly, I would make sure the Academy Awards committee was on site as it could be Oscar worthy for best performance on camera!

Jorge word of advice, these folks (just like your lawyer) have very little say in front of a man/women/binary with a robe and a gavel.  You have been warned.

A Drunk and his Enablers

As I am sure you have read by now, Jorge “the drunken Jedi” Riley is in custody for his part storming of the capital in DC.  While we can debate whether he was right, wrong, or indifferent we can all agree on one thing, it was flat stupid to do what he did.  Even dumber was to post video and other photos on his Facebook page.  Far dumber was to make comments about killing people or taking back the People’s House.  While we can agree he probably didn’t mean those comments, they are very dumb to say in an era of big tech hating conservatives, and when “screenshotting” is taboo. 

Jorge Aaron Riley

The point of this blog is not to dance on the grave of one’s misfortunes, as Mr. Riley in the words of a federal judge “is looking at a lengthy sentence, due to the nature of his crime and evidence against him.”  The point of my writing is to bring to light his enablers, who will all be called out by name, and I feel are accomplices to the behavior leading to the crime.

They are listed in no particular order.

Sue Blake (Former Sac County GOP Chair):  Sue or madam chair, as you can call her, had a front row seat to Riley’s sobriety issues.  Riley was known to attend the meetings with his “backpack” carrying the elixir by which he would consume, before, during, and after each meeting.  Blake would call on Riley to give a report, we would hear a plethora of racial or homophobic slurs, and she would smile and say thanks for that report.

Tom Hudson (Former CRA President) same as above but worse.  Hudson is a smooth-talking lawyer who for some reason really liked Jorge.  He too had no issue with the drinking, and every time there was a CRA board election, Jorge would find himself safe from any challengers.  Last I heard, he owns the server and membership lists for the statewide group. Hudson is still known to be protecting Riley even though he no longer wields much power.

The Park Brothers (George and Aaron):  While both may be removed from CRA, both allowed Riley to consume copious amounts of booze and stir up trouble at conventions.  Aaron may have written a blog or two disparaging him, but too little, too late. Aaron, you are just as culpable.  Notice his blog has been quiet about this, when news of Riley’s arrest spread like a PG&E induced wildfire.  Aaron and George know they are neck deep in this. Does the fact that Riley’s middle name is Aaron immunize him from their criticism?

Bill “The Wookie” Cardoza: By far the biggest enabler.  Bill, like any liquid, takes the shape of whatever vessel he is poured into.  Bill is a very close friend of Riley’s.  Bill has never done anything to advise Jorge of his behaviors. Bill on numerous occasions has even allowed Jorge to drive under the influence…Some friend!  On occasion Bill was a sober passenger.  Let that soak in!  Bill has worked for several elected’s in his day and he should know better.  Jorge was protected by Bill, so he is equally at fault for his behavior.  Rumor has it, Cardoza bought Riley’s ticket to DC.    Worse yet, Cardoza is a ranking member of the Sacramento CRA unit, and he has allowed Riley to destroy that once proud unit!

Jared Kopp (Former Sac County Republican Executive Director) Kopp was a drinking buddy of Riley, he also allowed Jorge’s drinking to shape who he is now.  Jared used to think this behavior was amusing and funny.  Jared, Sue and Terry Mast (RIP) defended this behavior and marginalized those who tried to stop it.

Folks if you know any of the above, please do not buy their BS.  They are all equally culpable.  Jared, Sue, and the other central committee members knew this man was a liability, yet they kept protecting and promoting him.  Cardoza?  He keeps protecting him, rumor has it he is actively searching for counsel to help defend Riley of the federal crimes he is charged with.  Aaron and George? I doubt Jorge paid you so how did you have such blind loyalty to him?  Tom Hudson, ditto.  Folks that is a collection of supposedly smart folks who sold out their futures to help a deranged human.

In short, the folks named above fought to enable and cover for a man (Jorge) who has unpaid child support from 4 different women, and allegedly has a criminal past.  Riley drinks alcohol from his backpack, before, during, and after meetings.  He has threatened folks with physical violence and once bragged about committing a double shooting. (Said crime is still listed as unsolved by local police.–Editor) I guess he must be a great volunteer or do quite a bit for the Party, right?  To justify defense of these actions?  Nope, he has not done squat since being a member of local politics.

“Seattle’s Best” Decides to Retire

By The Chief

In case you have missed the rioting, looting, and outright lawlessness in big cities throughout the country, Seattle voted Monday to slash the police department budget by 3 million. While that seems like a small number, the result will be a reduction of 100 police on the streets. Top staffers are taking forced pay cuts, and that is just the beginning of yet another “pass it to find out what’s in it, bill.” Seattle considered the bill, a favorite of BLM folks because they all think if they appease the mob, the mob will either stop, or target them last.

When the agenda item came up, both Mayor Durkan and Police Chief Carmen Best opposed this action saying it will affect minority (AKA non-white) officers the most and will encourage yet more lawlessness and crime. The motion carried 7-1, with one abstention. The “no” vote was Kshada Sawant a socialist who stated her no vote was because this measure did not go far enough. Keep in mind that Seattle had a foreign country (Chop/Chaz) inside of it for 6 weeks or so. A country that erected its own borders, tracked the I.D.s of all who entered or left, and had a group of rogue security guards armed with guns far more illegal than the ones you or I are permitted to own to enforce its laws!

Chief Best announced the following day she was retiring. She had been with the department for 28 years. She was a lifer in a field where so many spend their career hunting for the next higher paying job to spike their retirement. Just as a comparison, William’s and my hometown is on its 4th chief in 16 years! Best, who is black by the way, actually did a great job over the years and as a lifer knew the department well. She made it more diverse while enforcing the law fairly. Isn’t diversity a calling card of the BLM/far left/Soros types? Best saw her life’s work wiped out with the stroke of a pen via a unanimous vote! It was unanimous because the dissent was only because it didn’t go far enough.

Here are some highlights from the presser:

But more than anything during her press conference, she was frank as she explained she couldn’t bring herself to carry out the layoffs. She read a letter written to her by a new black officer.

“He is one of the people that will probably not keep a job here. And that for me, I’m done. Can’t do it,” Best explained.

Best is the first black woman to lead the SPD. She rose through the ranks from a patrol officer in the East Precinct to sergeant, lieutenant, captain, and deputy chief. Mayor Jenny Durkan appointed her to Chief two years ago after a controversial snub that led to a large public outcry.  

But on Tuesday, the past was behind them as Durkan reiterated her unwavering support for Best and even appeared emotional.

“My heart is obviously heavy to lose her and I will freely admit, I wish she were staying,” said Durkan.

Best said she wrestled with the decision and made it before the Council’s Monday vote.

Durkan said she believes Best is the right person to “reimagine” policing in the city.

Best voiced her resistance to the City Council’s plan to slash the department’s budget by 50%, and the decision for officers to leave the East Precinct in June, when the “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” or CHOP, took over several blocks surrounding the building for weeks. Protesters even targeted Best’s home.

Durkan and Best both took shots at the City Council who they say sought to defund the SPD without a real plan.

“This is not about the money. And it’s not about the demonstrators. Be real. I have a lot thicker skin than that. It really is about the overarching lack of respect for the officers – the men and women who work so hard, day in and day out,” Best said.

“This was a difficult decision for me, but when it’s time, it’s time,” Best wrote in an email to her 1,400 officers Monday night, hours after.

Notice, Mayor Durkan mentioned in the quote above? This lady is very conflicted. First, she knew, supported, knelt with, etc. supporters of BLM/CHOP/CHAZ—at least until they decided to protest at her house. Next time we hear about her is when she is supporting her chief and taking shots at her fellow council members for cutting the police department. Durkan is the worst type of politician. Such political types support a fringe movement when it has no cost, but then when it comes time to put pen to paper, they decide to take a different tact. Also notice crime is way up, the violent, lawless type especially, and the answer from city leaders is to reduce the number of police…. doesn’t seem too smart.

Best served as the chief law enforcement officer in the city of Seattle but she was overruled by the Mayor during the protests. Following the mayor’s orders, the police were forbidden to enforce the law or keep order during the upheaval. Furthermore, agreeing with the protestors, the entire council voted to cut her department’s budget without any concern for public safety. Best knew the department is in trouble for the foreseeable future and did what any self-respecting human being would do, step down.

It may soon dawn on Mayor Durkan that not only has she lost control of her city council; she has also lost control of her city. Durkan has been on every possible side of this issue telling her audience whatever she thinks will be to her advantage. Clearly, she has lost whatever credibility and goodwill she may have had. Meanwhile, a recall petition was just green lit by the City Court. Now Durkan must survive a recall while grappling with finding a new chief of police willing to work in her city and deal with fellow councilmembers who will want to gut the police budget further.

This same scenario will be playing out all over the country in the next few months….

Editor’s Note: This article proves Joe Biden’s V.P. pick was not the Best.

Riots Aint Quiet

Thankfully, Covid-19 has decided to stand with Black Lives Matterexcept unborn blacks or black Republicans—and agreed to allow congregating in Democrat led political districts without worry of spreading the Corona virus. This truce has allowed protestors to pillage and burn black and minority owned businesses.

It seems that black folks are angry about having to social distance, shelter in place, and watch too much cable news or maybe they were looking for an excuse to let off some steam against the oppression of Democrats where they live and help themselves to a new television or pair of Nike sneakers in the process. Anyway, if Dems rule a particular city or state, the police have been told to stand-down and watch as their local elected officials stand (or kneel) with law breakers that are protesting the actions of a few rouge officers in another state run by Democrats.

This whole thing is a farce. It is a George Soros type operation that is paid for and coordinated by a few troublemakers bent on stirring up the masses just before the November election. This is an independent expenditure on behalf of Joe Biden intended to get the blacks back on the Democrat reservation just in time to mobilize their votes. Sorry folks but I have zero sympathy for these protestors.

I’m sorry that the arrest of Mr. George Floyd resulted in his death but last I checked, the police that were involved were being dealt with by local authorities and President Trump ordered the Feds to investigate as well.

Any way you want to calculate it, most blacks are victimized by other blacks. Whether abortion, robberies, homicides, assaults, etc. most blacks are doing it to their own community. Some white cops get filmed on a bystander’s cell phone restraining Mr. Floyd and suddenly we have nationwide protests. This is not a proportional response.

As stated many times before on this blog, if black lives really mattered, these protestors would be at Planned Parenthood every day protesting until the abortion facilities built to eliminate them—minorities and poor people—were all closed. The truth is that BLM is about creating social and societal unrest. It is just a Marxist tool to control people and further a political agenda.

Folks, when you close churches nationwide, don’t feign surprise when evil breaks out. Actions have consequences. I find it funny that the ones supporting the closure of churches for the last three months are now pretending surprise when evil is freely practiced on the streets. People in these communities are sheltering in place now for safety. They have traded fear of one disease (a virus) for fear of another (sin).

If you break the law, you should fear the consequences whether you wear a badge or not. If you smash windows and steal stuff, or beat up strangers, you have become the very thing that you claimed you were protesting. The Liberal response is to remove the consequences and not enforce the law. The solution is the opposite; namely, enforce that law regardless of race, occupation, or social status.

Folks, I’m all for review and reform of our laws—especially in the areas of immigration and criminal justice—but relaxing the consequences for either the cops or the protestors is not the proper framework to begin such an examination.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and likewise, fear of the Lord is the beginning of justice too.
