So we’re voting every incumbent out on November 3rd right? Full house cleaning on the city and county level. Councils, board of supervisors, Judges, DAs, school boards, anyone who has been in any office is guilty.

Rolaids August 8, 2020 at 4:34 PM

I’m with ya, bro. Start at the top of the ballot and prune all the way down.

Sam August 8, 2020 at 9:44 PM

That’s right start at the top by checking the box for Donald J Trump. Then vote to remove all communists who have given aid and comfort to our enemies.

Can start with riding the public of Sheriff Livingston. He’s nothing more than a wannabe general. The SO is not a military operation it’s a civil operation but he acts otherwise.

little rant August 7, 2020 at 10:35 PM

Ill just put it out here that i am really disappointed by Chaplain Grayson. He must have been reading his scriptures when he learned to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing coming in the night….Gets elected on the law and order promise and then BAM!!!!!!

Recall 'Em All August 8, 2020 at 7:01 AM

No big surprise! Just look at how he handled his campaign and the finances.

Well Folks August 9, 2020 at 9:23 AM

little rant
All I can say is you must have never paid attention to his action on Concord City council. It was then the Snake Oil Preacher personality came out.
People that don’t watch and pay attention to lower level offices get what the deserve when the vote the chumps into higher office

Antler August 11, 2020 at 11:25 AM

Well Folks, YES! …. guessing (only guessing) he had used “freewill tax-free” donations from his congregation to get elected to Council in the first place!

Please vote against increasing and extending the “Temporary” City if Concord sales tax. The City needs to work like a business and make cost savings reductions not keep asking for more money. Look at the salaries paid to the city employees it is time for change.

Lars Anderson August 12, 2020 at 7:38 AM

The median pay of City of Concord employees is thru the roof. Concord City workers are paid more than city workers in SF, Oakland, LA, and San Diego. More locally Concord city workers make an average of 30,000 more per worker than city workers in Walnut Creek.
City worker pay in Concord is through the roof because of the ongoing corruption that permeates our city. Our city council is completely controlled by city labor unions, as is the city managers office. Whenever any big decision is made in Concord the city manager Valerie Barone and most members of the council have to “clear” their decisions with their overlords – the Concord POA – who run our city behind the scenes.
I urge all citizens to NOT vote for extending the temporary sales tax. This move to extend the tax is a money grab by city labor unions. The POA wants every retiring PD officer to retire with a pension of 120K, and managers want to retire at 200K.
So I am in total agreement Concord residents should reject extending the sales. After this ballot measure loses these high paying people working for city – who spend most of their time trying to expand pay and benefit packages for themselves – while simultaneously doing as little work as possible – can be replaced by lower paid workers.
No way should Concord be paying city workers the kind of budget choking salaries you see today – this has happened because of ongoing corruption in our city. Anytime you have a situation where labor unions are running the town you see sky high wages.

My friend, Erin Mcferrin, is running for school board in trustee area 5. I know folks on here have LOTS of feelings about local politics, so zoom in and meet Erin this saturday at 3:00! Here is the web address to the invite with the zoom link.

Sam August 8, 2020 at 12:48 PM

Your friend is a “woke“ communist. No thanks

Rolaids August 8, 2020 at 4:43 PM

@Sam. I scoured the internet, and I found nothing that supports your assertion that Erin McFarrin is a “woke communist”. Perhaps I wasn’t looking hard enough. Would you please refer me a link to the damning information, or better yet, explain in your own words how you reached this conclusion?

Sam August 8, 2020 at 6:07 PM

She has a Twitter account, unless she deleted it after the last time I put her on blast and posted the link here.

S August 9, 2020 at 10:01 AM

Rumor has it that she is the candidate the teacher’s union recruited (Union Hired Headhunter) and is running to work on their behalf as an elected official…

RANDOM TASK August 8, 2020 at 10:31 AM

Sam August 8, 2020 at 6:16 PM

I noticed antifa accounts pOstS lIkE tHiS oN tHe iNtErnEtS. Is that what you are doing? Signaling to your comrades that you gots to be getting paid for these posts? You sure appear offended at me calling out a commie running for the school board. Like they need another. Does dat hurt your widdle commie feelings?

If you watch the mainstream news channels (CNN, MSNBC, ABC, etc) and you have never watched Fox News, please consider taking a look at “Life, Liberty and Levin” tonight (Sunday, 8/9/20).

Mark Levin will be interviewing Attorney General William Barr.

They will be discussing the riots and the left.

The Wizard August 9, 2020 at 12:39 PM

I’ll be watching…..Levin is a smart man. I always listen to his 3:00 show. He does a good Anthony Fauci imitation and others. And thank God we got Barr.

Anew August 10, 2020 at 3:39 PM

@The Wizard. I agree. Levin focuses on reminding people that the Dems have been trampling on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Barr has been able to withstand the bad actors who have been trying to destroy Trump. I watched the interview last night. Barr mentioned that the Durham investigation is expanding. For those who missed it you can get a recap by searching:

“Levin + Barr”.

Barr noted that Joe Biden has hired 600 lawyers to contest the election if Trump wins. The Dems already don’t think they are going to win, and they are gearing up to resist Trump for four more years.

“LEO’s, any thoughts or ideas on this?
Defund the police. This does two things for the leftists. First it demoralizes good honest police officers trying to do their jobs and it causes good cops to quit or be fired. Secondly the money that was used for the regular police is now used to fund the stand up of SJW Marxist social workers/community organizers who will replace many of the police who quit, or are forced out due to a RIF. Since these SJW’s will be put in danger trying to do a police function, they will end up demanding that they be armed too. Once the SJW social workers are armed, they become Obamao’s civilian army or brown shirts in fact.

6. So the leftist aim of COVID and race riots is to fundamentally transform your local police by replacing good honest cops with SJW Marxist social worker/community organizers with guns who will ignore actual street crime and arrest non-Democrats who wish to exercise their rights under the Constitution and their pursuit of happiness. This happens in every Marxist Revolution for it to succeed. They must control the local police and they must use them to go after their political opposition. The first thing they will be coming for is your guns. ”

Kad, CFP.

Well Folks August 11, 2020 at 9:33 AM

JL – There should be annual psych evaluations done on LEO’s. This would be the best tool to weed out the bad ones before they cause major damage to a Dept. Also eliminate the damn “blue code”. That code does nothing but compromise the integrity of good cops. It would also help if there was a nation data base so if a LEO was terminated due to use of excessive force or other unacceptable behaviors he/she would not be hired anywhere else as a LEO. Stop the bad culture from flowing.

There also needs to be a funding “shift” as LEO;’s are not trained to be social workers, psychologist or public health workers and those aspects should never be part of their job. Law enforcement has been given to much on their plates and depts have been given too much power in communities.

Antler August 11, 2020 at 11:38 AM

Well Folks, would you join me in taking this a step further and giving extra rigorous psychiatric exams to those applicants who served in military COMBAT zones? (PTSD flip-outs can make an officer kill an innocent citizen who is not armed and/or who is stupid enough to “talk back” trying to assert his/her citizen’s rights.)

I am also STRONGLY in favor of increasing the use of our K-9 officers. Their very presence will make a “smart aleck” comply at least until he/she gets down to the booking-room staff. They actually save lives!

Anon August 11, 2020 at 12:24 PM

Know your history.
25 years ago, Police departments were Rejecting applicants if they scored Too high on the screening process.
They want yes men who are afraid of their own shadows……and we have what we are living today.

Please don’t attempt to “debunk” me with some snopes drivel. Do some actual research and you’ll come to the same conclusion.

Well Folks August 11, 2020 at 4:31 PM

Antler – I agree with you 100%. Once in the combat zone military become nothing but trained poorly paid killers. And for some they think they can act the same when they become law enforcement. It’s like they can’t adjust to the real world where things are not black and white. The real world has several shades of grey.

Justifiable languor August 12, 2020 at 7:27 AM

Thank you Well Folks, Antler and Anon for participating. This sight is an excellent vat for ideas and information.
