The Politichicks, Ann Coulter and Donald Trump, “oh my!”


We want to talk about The Politichicks, Ann Coulter and Donald Trump, but we want to thank everyone who staffed and visited our most successful July 4 booth in Sylvan Park: Richard and Joann Marshall, Jackie Siefferman, Fletch and Cheryl Birge, Scott and Ann Olson, Henry Vanderleest, Sean Ponce, Greg Brittain, and Carolyn Hays, among others. The national Tea Party Patriots sent us five boxes of swag beforehand. Pens and bumper stickers flew off the tables, but the big surprise was that all the Core Values brochures — the ones extolling our values of personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future–were all taken! There is a real hunger in the general public for the work we’re doing. 

Redlands, a city that fancies itself as a backdrop to a Norman Rockwell painting, had a wonderful July 4 parade, celebration, and fireworks. State Senator Mike Morrell walked in the parade as did State Assemblyman Marc Steinorth. Heck! Even the Run Ben Run folks had a float. And what was missing? Redlands’ former mayor, resident and leftist Pete Aguilar, who after getting elected to Congress through fraud and race cards, dissed his hometown yet again. We had a better July 4 without him, but we can’t help but notice he moved his office to Rancho Cucamonga and promptly moved out of town after the November election. We can spot empty suits with two left arms in Redlands, which explains why Pete lost his (former) hometown by 8% in 2014.

We are very excited about the Politichicks on August 8 for the Patriots Sizzling Summer Spectacular!  Having Politichicks Dr. Gina Loudon, Ann-Marie Murrell and Morgan Brittany (who drew rave reviews at Unite IE Conservative Conference) will break new ground for the Redlands Tea Party Patriots as we expand our horizons and reach out to nationally known speakers. So please, please, PLEASE tell your friends and buy a ticket! The evening comes with a book signing. Details in the next column. Our next newsletter will provide more details about our Sizzling Summer Spectacular! The Politichicks will be main event for the evening! We expect a sold-out show, so buy your tickets now.

So much political news to cover!

As expected, Ann Coulter hit one of her typical grand slams Thursday when a standing-room-only crowd of nearly 400 people crammed into an Ontario ballroom to hear her talk during a book signing for Adios America, her new book on how illegal and legal immigration are dooming America all to heck and hell (read her well-researched and documented book to discover why).  We agree with Ann Coulter that immigration, illegal and legal, is the most important issue, “Trumping” all other issues.  If we lose on immigration, the liberals will fundamentally transform America, optimistically into Greece, more realistically into Venezuela.

Ann did not declare a favorite in the GOP field–although she did speak favorably of Scott Walker and Ted Cruz–but she gushed about how Donald Trump is doing America a favor by making immigration the issue it should be. Ann stressed how liberals only take notice of issues like immigration when it affects them personally–as is the case with the horrible murder of a San Francisco woman by a criminal illegal alien who, despite five deportations, managed to stay in San Francisco because it’s a self-styled “sanctuary city.” Anyway, you can still catch Ann in person at the Reagan library on July 16. Details in the adjoining column.  You can read her columns at

Speaking of illegal immigration: The Los Angeles Times did its typical and predictable fawning about illegal aliens in not just one, but two(!) stories in the Saturday paper. The first slammed Donald Trump for an LA stop. But our good friends at We the People Rising held a counter-rally which forced the LA Times to admit that people actually supported Trump.
Here’s the link to the Breitbart story (and read that one instead of the LA Times…which, in a way only the liberal LAT could manage, had a second fawning article about illegals. The second one–and we’re not making this up–was about LGBT in the USA illegally.)

Rebecca Friedrichs, daughter of Redlands’ own Maggi Brummett, could single-handedly take down the thugs of the government-employee unions after the US Supreme Court accepted her case! Rebecca–an incredibly courageous public school teacher from Orange County–stood up to her California Teachers Association by standing up against mandatory dues the unions throw to liberal candidates and causes. Depending how the Supremes rule, this case could cripple the political machines of the government employee unions nationwide because their members will have the choice — gasp!– to voluntarily contribute to government employee unions instead of being forced to contribute against their wills.  As Thomas Jefferson said: “To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical.”

Soon, we expect to receive our first box of petitions about a proposed 2016 ballot measure that would prevent Sacramento from imposing co-ed bathrooms in public accommodations. Stay tuned.

“Troglodytes!” That’s Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown’s last libel for people who refuse to drink the liberal Kool-Aid about global warming! For those of us who can still remember “The Ice Age is Coming!” scares of the 1970s, it’s hard to imagine another insult is going to make us suddenly believe in the global warming fraud. Still, “troglodytes” is funny. We wear it proudly. Thanks Moonbeam.  [FYI:, there has been no global warming for more than 18 years.  John Adams said “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” However, John Adams never met the global warmers.]

Joe Baca is now a Republican?!?!?! We just lost our lunch. It may be political opportunism and Baca may challenge Pete Aguilar and Paul Chabot in congressional district 31. Joe Baca is longtime political fixture in the IE and, at least, a solid Second Amendment supporter.  Stay tuned and keep the Pepto Bismol nearby as this race unfolds. 

Oh! Four of our members (Carolyn Hays, Greg Brittain, John Berry, and Lawrence Quenga) journeyed to the Western Conservative Summit in Denver in late June. They made lots of contacts which could benefit the Redlands Tea Party Patriots for years to come. John was invited by the national Tea Party Patriots to speak at a breakout session about growing grassroots organizations. 

The straw poll results were: (1) Carson 221, (2) Fiorina 201, (3) Walker 192, (4) Cruz 100, (5) Paul 34, (6) Rubio 24, (7) Perry 20, (8) Santorum 16, (9) Trump 15 [before the Trump surge], (10) Huckabee 13.  The results were particularly embarrassing to Perry, Santorum and Huckabee who spoke at WCS and who seek conservative votes. 

As conservatives, we are fortunate to have such a smorgasbord of candidates to choose from in 2016. It shows our side has all the ideas, creativity, and energy. The libs? Not so much. They are stuck with Hillarity and maybe Bernie and Joe. (That’s sort of like picking among Lenin, Marx, and Trotsky, if not Larry, Curly, and Moe). While our side discusses ways to fix our great country, the liberals are so mired in identity politics that they are –quite comically– racing identity labels on their foreheads. Besides being embarrassing, this shows their side is completely void of any fresh ideas.  

While there, Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin all but confirmed that she will speak at the Third Annual Unite IE Conservative Conference in Riverside on March 19. (We engaged in some shameless lobbying to get her to agree.) She said she is looking forward to the event.

Now a word about Marc Steinorth: Like many of you, we are disappointed in Marc, as well as Yucaipa-based Assemblyman Chad Mayes, for cosponsoring a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender resolution in Sacramento. Many of us gave Marc a piece of our mind. We wonder how such a pro-family, Christian man could co-author a LGBT resolution that is blatantly anti-family, anti-marriage, anti-Christian, and anti-American. Here is Marc’s statement:

Sacramento’s machine continues its push to strip away Prop 13 protections for businesses and families, which would drastically increase taxes on commercial property and severely damage the state’s economy permanently.  This is the real threat we face here in California and that is my primary focus.
I am the last line of defense to prevent tax increases. I am targeted with traps on every vote I cast. Now more than ever, I need your unwavering support to keep representing our community by fighting every single day to protect you and businesses from the constant push for more tax increases.
Symbolic resolutions should in no way distract from the real work and very serious issues that I am focused on. HR 24 is a symbolic measure that expresses support for continued non-discrimination against the LGBT community when employers make hiring or firing decisions.  This is current law in California. 
In recent months, I have taken very difficult votes that will be used against me by my opponents.  For example, I supported legislation, AB 1254, to prohibit the State from requiring private health plans to pay for abortions. I also opposed the mandatory vaccination bill, SB 277, in order to protect individual rights and liberties, such as the right to education, freedom of religion, and the right for parents to choose what is in the best interest of their child.  I will continue to make these difficult decisions as your elected representative and I am absolutely committed to fighting this fight every day.  As always, I will remain open and accessible on issues that are important to you and our community.
I truly need your support in these efforts.

OK Marc. We get it. We are disappointed in this vote, but we understand that you are a target in Sacramento. We get it that the resolution was meaningless and the LGBT resolution is hard-ball politics to demoralize his supporters. We also understand that if you go, Prop 13 could fall to a Democrat supermajority. Still, we are worried about Marc voting for such an immoral and indefensible resolution.

Marc Steinorth [and Chad Mayes] also support toll lanes on the 10 and 15 (former) freeways.  Counting the “cap and trade” tax, California has the highest gas tax in America.  Toll lanes make us pay for our roads twice and advance “Sustainability”/Agenda 21. 

Ronald Reagan said “The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally — not a 20 percent traitor.”  However, we also need to let our elected officials know when they are getting close to that 80% threshold. 

Other news:

The SoCal fight to overturn utility taxes is growing.
TeaPAC Pasadena,, headed by Mike Alexander, is in the process of repealing the unpopular and unneeded utility taxes in the Inland Empire communities of Upland, San Bernardino, Rialto, and Colton. TeaPAC Pasadena is working to repeal a host of utility taxes throughout Southern California (70 communities in five counties as a matter of fact) and these four San Bernardino County communities are the first targets in the Inland Empire. TeaPAC Pasadena needs at least three registered voters in these communities to step up as proponents wanting to repeal utility taxes in those towns. (There is no cost and no responsibility other than signing forms.) Please contact as soon as possible. Bottom line up front: utility taxes need relatively few valid signatures to qualify for the ballot, so a determined group of volunteers could collect enough signatures to overturn utility taxes in those cities.  The only way to make government smaller is by limiting government’s ability to extract money from the taxpayers.  As Mike Alexander said: “The only way to make government smaller is to make government smaller.”

Our own John Berry has been named a San Bernardino County coordinator for Utility Users Tax (UTT) repeal effort. You can reach him via You can contact him as well if you are willing to sponsor a UTT repeal in your city.

Also, TeaPAC Pasadena will be launching a petition drive in December or January supporting school choice. Stay tuned!
