Pombo’s Friends Are Abandoning The GOP Ship

Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily (yes, THAT Joseph Farah, the co-author of Richard Pombo's extremist property rights manifesto) has spoken out on the Republican leadership and Predatorgate:
Following the revelations about Florida Rep. Mark Foley's sexually suggestive e-mails to a 16-year-old congressional page, I have concluded Republicans are unworthy of retaining control of the federal government. […]

It's not just what one unfit congressman did. It is how his colleagues, mindful only of defending their own positions of power, reacted.

Over the weekend we learned that Rep. Thomas Reynolds, head of the House Republican election effort, went to House Speaker Dennis Hastert months ago about concerns a fellow GOP lawmaker had sent inappropriate, sexually suggestive messages to the teenage boy.

Hastert's office said aides referred the matter to the proper authorities last fall but they were only told the messages were "over-friendly." In other words, they did no investigating because they didn't want to know the truth. An election was coming, and Republicans were hoping to hold their slim majority in a tough contest this year.
So what is Richard Pombo going to do vis-à-vis Dennis Hastert? After all, you’d think Pombo would be forced to recognize that his ship is sinking when even his loony right-wing co-author thinks that he and his party are unfit to govern.

This land is our land has been one of the striking theme songs in America for many years. When Richard Pombo and Fara wrote their book with the same title it should have sent a shock wave to everyone in America who were born here. That should have sent a signal to everyone of what this tyrant and his family were about. It was about local control but it got out of hand. Now we see many of his closest allies are jumping ship. My vision was that he and what the power brokers were building was wrong. The Marianas was another issue along with local corruption. I always talked about the local control because that is where Pombo's base was. The developers and their abitlty to generate millions was simple. That is where Pombo and his gang of cut throats gained power by using self serving gimicks to continue to get elected. Now that we finally see what his game was, the gig is up. Even the Republicans know his time is up. Good ridence to bad rubbish. The power brokers such as Julia Green who came from Florida to direct the invasion, and the newspaper moguls and Radio personalities like Rob Johnson and Bill Mick. The appointments to the San Joaquin County elections office and the Central Committee. The Chamber of Commerce, the land alliance people, vision projects, the IRP, Cog, and the appointments to those agencys. Mayors and so on. The staff of Tracy alone is over 450 people to run a city of 80,000. The ACE train was a pet program for Pombo, which runs 12 million in the hole every year. The train see to it that special Tracy residents have ways to work, they surely can't travel on the 205 Freeway. Other corruptions are down to charging the local TV channel users so much a month more and using that money to purvey slanted information to the general population. They now have their own channel distributed by Comcast. If Joseph Gerbils could see his plan he would be proud of it.

Get out of my belly. Vote Mc Nerney.

Things are looking great! Someone should follow up on Pombo's dislike for Bay Area folks. Does he not realize that his district includes offical Bay Area cities such as Dublin and Pleasanton? Or does he not really care about the Bay Area? I suggest that he does not give a rat's ass about the majority of the CA-11 constituents. So we should start a log about his negative comments regarding the Bay Area. Also, i have now made a modest financial contribution towards McNerney for Congress. Keep up the good work and give'em hell.

Speaking of that issue most of the people who bought homes in Tracy and the valley towns were from the bay area. I think Pombo does not understand that point. He is so disingenuous, about most the accusations of things he has done. How could he possibly understand that those same people are his supporters. So yes make statements that he Pombo dislikes the folks who live in the bay area. That issue just might cost him this race. Jerry has already made head rows in the San Joaquin valley, this could be his strong point. Just a note where are all the Mc Nerney signs I spread the few I had in places, of interest. We need to get out and do it.

Vote Mc Nerney for Congress.
