Find the Kryptonite!

Apparently Victor Valladares is havin’ some trouble over in Oak View , struggling with back pain. That tends to happen when people are stressed out and anxious.

Click here for more on stress and anxiety related back pain.

just victor

It also tends to happen when ” Super Activista” is exposed to the “Kryptonite” of the truth and thus, the anxiety sets in.

I threw a bag of high grade Kryptonite out of my car on a late nite run through Oak View, right by Victor’s pad.

The bag was filled with the words of Victor’s abused ex-wife, Breannia Lalama,

The woman he pushed down a flight of stairs, messing up HER back, in the process. ( c4, c5 details on file)

Breannia Lalama

Some serious Kryptonite indeed, for the smiling liar.

Only trouble for Super Activista is, it will just blend in with all the other debris from Street Vendors and Taco Trucks that tends to crowd the gutter in Oak View and thus it will remain there for a good long while, messing with his Super Powers of Unrepentant Lying and Smiling Denial…

At least until the city sweepers run through.

You want sympathy Victor? You’ll get none from me.

You will continue to get it from the idiots that still buy your lies and wish you well… Apparently you care so little for  others that you will continue to lie and forever taint them all in the process.

By the way, I just received multiple fresh shipments of Grade AAA Kryptonite. I have them stashed in a Top Secret Location…I’m still sorting and grading it all for deployment in the near future.  


In the meantime, why don’t you go have a 12 pack with your homies?


No doubt you will feel so much better.

Oh, and I’m still waiting for your imaginary libel suit Victor. The suspense is killin’ me!



Shot Down in flames…..again!



Thank you Michael Gates!

In an apparent example of a Vulcan Mind Meld,


Gates also found the OVSD assertions regarding Tarvins Community Services Commission overreach “Absurd.”

See ” Giant Douche Redux” for the backstory…


Kudos to Michael Gates for utilizing his precious time wisely and telling the OVSD outside counsel to pound sand.

I will be filing a CPRA request to find out just how much OVSD taxpayer money was wasted on this futile, prideful effort.

But what else would you expect from the Queen of Mean?

Tarvin recall announcement shouted down by Union Goons & District Superintendent Carol Hansen.

In a display of utter contempt for the constituents of the Ocean View School District, Gina Tarvin packed the November 11th 2017, Community Forum for College View Elementary, with sympathizers and Union Goons, who shouted down local resident Annette Chilvers when she sought to inform Gina Clayton Tarvin that concerned constituents were finally so tired enough of her antics that they are going to start a Recall Campaign against everybody’s favorite tyrant.

Chilvers comments were in fact germane to the conversation, as they dealt with resident dissatisfaction with Tarvin’s plan to fence off the College View fields that was the primary impetus for the recall, that and the fact that Tarvin is a self absorbed narcissist, far more concerned with her political future then the OVSD kids.

Chilvers is an educator herself, and is a benefactor to some OVSD schools having supported numerous initiatives at College View and Mesa View schools with thousands of dollars.

This is how they repay her when she expresses her right to initiate a recall against an arrogant, aloof, self absorbed political climber that puts her own interests over those of the kids of the district.

Dr. Carol Hansen informed Chilvers that she was “Off Topic”. Hansen however was incorrect in asserting that Chilvers had no right to speak on a topic other than that controlled by the districts facilitators.

At “Open Comments” of ANY district function, any and all topics can be discussed. Hansen had no right to step in and initiate the shout down from the Union Thugs who filed in to support the queen of mean.

If this were the situation, the meeting would have to be conducted in closed session.

The next meeting of the OVSD board should be hilarious, when Tarvin is served with an official Notice To Recall.

As usual, Tarvin will pack the room with lackeys, goons and minions an who will grovel tirelessly at the Queen’s feet and offer words of praise.

However, there is a good chance Tarvin will have yet another “Family Emergency” and No Show. She Pulled that stunt a while back when she got wind that yours truly would be there to speak along with some other “Riff Raff”.

I won’t miss the next meeting scheduled for December 11, 2017. As usual, the goon squad will be out in force. See you all there. I may even have something to say.

Postscript: Victor Valladares, I will be attending the OVSD Meeting, December 11, 2017. That would be a perfect time to serve me with your libel lawsuit!

You know, to restore your “Good Name”…. right?

See you there!



CPRA and you.

Your HBSledgehammer editor recently filed CPRA requests with Ocean View School District rep Cindi Lee.

These requests include the long awaited peek into HB City councilman Erik Peterson’s communications  and a separate request for all communication concerning anyone from his company, Intec Network Solutions, Inc.

Peterson elected to ignore requests to walk back his endorsement of Tarvin and to repudiate Valladares.


In addition, we will be looking into Mark Bixby and his employer, Quintessential School Systems in separate requests.

Lastly, we are requesting anything to do with Victor Valladares, Oscar Rodriguez,and Oak View comUNIDAD, Mary Urashima and “Historic Wintersburg”. 

We fully expect stall tactics and “Clarification of scope” …

I’ll make it easy on you.

I want it all.

Get to work.

Once these are complete, we will be looking into all communication from Gina Tarvin flowing in and out of ABC School district servers and checking Peterson’s dealings with all area school districts to see if his die hard endorsement of and refusal to repudiate Tarvin is based on business connections and referrals.

Break out the Bleach Bit.

Double Secret Probation.

Somebody sent me this screenshot from HB Gadfly, Janice the other day.


In a new twist, I am now an advocate of “Alt-Right fight clubs” and “exploitation”. When you got nothin, just make stuff up and hope it sticks…right? Lol…

Janice is one of the biggest cheerleaders for Gina Tarvin, a woman who recently called a battered woman a liar, from the dais, during public comments at a recent OVSD meeting.

Facebook is now actively researching Tarvin’s involvment in a scheme to ban the accounts of those who dared to simply utter her name, let alone criticize her actions.

Having exhausted all means of silencing Tarvin’s critics, Janice and her buddies are now contemplating using “law enforcement” to accomplish what is now off limits and out of reach.

In an effort to help Janice in her quest, I sent a private message and kindly directed her to the handy form available right here, on HBSledgehammer.com for just that purpose.

form (2).jpg

I did this as a courtesy to the HBPD who have a line out the door of triggered individuals that feel some violation of the law has occurred.

Inside sources tell me HBPD detectives openly laugh at the complaints filed and remain big fans of HBSledgehammer.com.

They certainly know we are fans of the HBPD street cops.


Click here for a Public Service Announcment from HBSledgehammer.com

Apparently Janice didn’t care for my concern nor my humor. She issued the following “Facebook Restraining Order” placing me on “double secret probation”.


Don’t worry Janice.

Niether I nor most people will have much to do with you after you are permanantley doused in the stench of your continued support of both Valladares and Tarvin.

All the lemon juice in the world won’t be able to knock back that foul odor.

For now, our lips are sealed re Valladares and the sad new details I was made privy to.

I’m sitting on a pile of fun. I may just sit on it a while longer and see what other slime oozes to the surface and drop it all when the time is right.

Victor Valladares Lawsuit Update:

Victor Valladares claimed he would be pursuing libel charges against HBSledgehammer.com.

A laughable claim that we welcome, just so we can make fun of it,

day after day.

Giant Douche Redux.

All I wanted was a break.

A few days…a week, without insane behavior, and political theatre.

Is that somehow too much to ask?

In HB? Apparently so…

I subscribe to Huntington Beach Author Chris Epting’s Blog, Surf City Chronicles.

Epting documents the insane happenings in local politics, with a laser focus on the shenanigans over at Ocean View School District. He is always a source for fresh inspiration and insight.

If you haven’t read Chris’s Blog, have a look…

Click Here for Chris Epting’s Surf City Chronicles….

Epting’s latest post was about the lawsuit, (or threat thereof) issued by OVSD for refusing to approve Mark Bixby or the “Conservative” alternative, John Briscoe, to the city’s Community Services Commission.

23632192_10214822616018136_1876480400579053838_oThe Community Services Commission, strangely, allows representatives of the local school districts, to have a say in matters far beyond the scope of the portfolio of District owned parkland that the city uses to boost its park acreage and maintain or exceed State requirements regarding compliance with state mandates regarding per capita park space.

Many of these committee appointments are coveted awards for ass kissing cronies and gadflys that want to improve their political resumes, in the hopes of one day ascending the ladder and achieving higher political aims.

For the unaware, Gina Clayton-Tarvin recently proposed Mark Bixby for an appointment to this commission, in an attempt to revive the flagging political relevancy of an ultra progressive bag man, who gladly filed  nuisance lawsuits with the FPPC in an effort to throw shade on conservative candidates.

Bixby found trivial details in campaign filings and jumped at the chance to use his findings to discredit the opponents of his handlers.

In return, he no doubt, expected a quid pro quo, spoken or unspoken.

Bixby’s efforts to Dox people both he, and his handlers didn’t care for, became the stuff of legend and in the end, the City council wisely voted not to approve his appointment.

He even went as far as to attempt to Dox his fellow Tarvin Suicide Commando, John Briscoe..

You just can’t make this shit up…


Earth to Mark Bixby and Gina Tarvin…Mark wasn’t shot down for his liberal viewpoint.

He was shot down because of his objectionable behavior and activities.

But it’s all a “Conspiracy” when it’s the Gina Show…

gina show

Read “A new low in HB Politics “ for more on Tarvin and “right wing conspiracies”.”

In a classic example of arrogant overreach and political theatre, Gina Clayton-Tarvin returned to the drawing board and came back to the council, offering them the choice between Bixby and fake Conservative gasbag, John Briscoe.

Tarvin probably thought that if the council were forced to choose between Bixby and local lunatic, Briscoe, that they would be compelled to seat Bixby.

The Council, wisely enough, wasn’t having any part of this steaming pile of crap offered up by Tarvin and her conspirators on the OVSD Board of Trustees and again, wisely rejected this absurd “Choice”.

HBSledgehammer published a piece regarding the whole ridiculous situation on November 7th, 2017 Click here to read “Democracy in Action”

In a hilarious scene reminiscent of the “Southpark” episode where the students are forced to choose between a “Giant Douche” or a “Turd Sandwich” as the new school mascot when the current one was deemed to be not “politically correct”, Tarvin chose to send Bixby and Briscoe on a kamikaze mission in an effort to demonstrate her command of the political landscape and authority which backfired yet again in yet another humiliating defeat.


In a ridiculous demonstration of audacity, she has now implied pending legal action should the Council not approve her  “Choice”.

Allow me to present some possible alternatives that would have to be appointed to the commission, should Tarvin prevail in this case….

How about  Commissioner Charles Manson?635520071052429478-A03-MANSON-NOW-20-24753971

Commissioner Anthony Weiner? He looks the part, right?


Commissioner Chuck Johnson anybody?…lol


You get the point.

I could flog this dead horse all day long……

Just like Gina.

There is a reason for checks and balances in government. To prevent just the kind of overreach the City Council wisely prevented. All of this money wasted on attorneys, both City Attorney and OVSD outside counsel, could have been saved had Tarvin simply displayed enough decency to go back and find an acceptable moderate to fill the spot.

But that appears to be beyond the ability of a prideful, arrogant, narcissistic “Elected Official” to swallow.

Her pride and arrogance are now costing taxpayers of the City and OVSD to pay for her folly.

Luckily, City Attorney Michael Gates is on a roll, having bested the Kennedy commission and sending shameless ambulance chaser, Michael Shenkman packing after Victor Valladares apparently invited him to sue HB to force a districting scheme on the Voters, in a last ditch effort to gerrymander a “district” where perhaps even a wife beating loser like Valladares could win a seat.


Gates is on hand to advise the council on how to deal with Tarvins refusal to take no for an answer and can make quick work of this scam, without having to waste too much of his valuable time on yet another example of Tarvin’s attempt to assert her political will.

This case is based on interpretation of the intent of the statute cited. Tarvin hanging her hopes on a single word,as is often the case.

Perhaps Gates can just change the verbiage of the law and send her packing. Sooner or later she will get the fact that she just needs to nominate somebody moderate and move on.

Or does Tarvin think the 3rd times a charm….?

Can you imagine the outrage if Tarvin  had nominated Chuck Johnson?

I shudder to think of the revolt that would no doubt occur…

And that…..is my point.

Only in HB.

Stop the madness. I need a break.

A new low in HB Politics. Gina Clayton-Tarvin accuses battered wife of lying from the dais.

At a meeting of the Ocean View School District on Tuesday November 14, 2017,    Gina Clayton-Tarvin basically accused the Ex-Wife of Victor Valladares, Breannia Lalama, of being a liar, joining Victor Valladares in his cowardly attempt to dodge personal responsibility for his behavior.

Valladares is Tarvin’s protege. She has mentored him and is attempting to elevate him in the ranks of the Orange County Democrat Party, and has introduced him to benefactors that finance his various activist adventures.

I will not comment on the nature of Tarvin’s relationship with Valladares. I certainly have no information on why Tarvin’s husband Derrick filed for divorce from Gina Clayton Tarvin on April 19, 2017. Perhaps the two issues are related. Time will tell.

Click here for public records on this case that she will no doubt have sealed shortly.

Breannia Lalama

After Breannia Lalama bravely recounted her experiences being physically, sexually and verbally assaulted by Valladares and mentioning Tarvin’s unusual relationship with her ex-husband, including the fact that she was listed as a potential character witness against her in a custody hearing, and that Valladares had said that Tarvin would be watching his kids during one of his custody periods when he was out of town, instead of simply returning them to their mother, Tarvin issued the following heavily nuanced  statement from the dais, effectively calling her a liar: 

Lastly I’d just like to say that there was a lot of spirited public comments, and while I appreciate the um, willingness of people to come forward and speak, unfortunately sometimes what they say is untrue.”

Read between the  lines… she just called her a liar. Her statement at this point is directed to Brianna Lalama’s entire speech, recounting years of abuse at the hands of Valladares.

“And um, I deny what was said about me, it’s just flat just not true.

Note the key word…”And”. She is separating the two statements she has made. She has just called Breannia Lalama, a battered woman, a liar.

And it’s unfortunate that I have become a target in this town just for the mere fact that I’m a Democrat. And I think that many of you probably heard, that many of the speakers came and said the word Democrat”.

“You probably heard that. There were like 4 of them that said it. Democrat. Democrat. Democrat. Democrat. Liberal, union, you hear there’s a theme.

I’m a target because of a political affiliation and that’s unfortunate. So, in any case, no matter what, everyone has the right to come and speak, in a civil manner, but I just don’t agree with what you said.”


Tarvin listed as a “Character witness” for Victor Valladares, along with Mentor and supporter, John Briscoe and “Republican” Patricia Singer…

Wait….didn’t she just make this statement…..

“And um, I deny what was said about me, it’s just flat just not true.

I keep promising the readers to refrain from profanity. I’m sorry. I just can’t.

Gina Tarvin is an asshole.

Blowing off a battered woman to detract from her own involvement in the overall picture.

Then having the gall to deflect…. by (Like Valladares…) blaming it all on a “right wing” conspiracy against “Democrats”.

Where have I heard this before?

Oh, from Victor Valladares!.. dodge, deflect…unfuckingbelievable, lady…

She should be censured for this behavior by the rest of the Board of Trustees and news media outlets notified of her stance and her comments.

It’s not political Gina. Its not Democrat or Republican.

Its a fight against assholes in government.

Self absorbed, narcissistic, arrogant, lying assholes.

That’s what this is about. You will never get it, will you?

Postscript… please be patient while I continue to compile and go through all of the eyewitness accounts to Victor Valladares behavior regarding the abuse of his ex-wife. At this point, the are too numerous to review.

They will comprise part of my rebuttal to his 2nd pathetic blanket denial.

In the event that you still find issues with Chuck Johnson, please note:

I Still…have been kind enough not to shame Victor Valladares for his Kim Jong Un haircut. That…would be a cheap shot….

Shame on you Gina Clayton Tarvin. You are a loathsome creature.

“All crimes are paid”…

We mean it man…..

A Rebuttal to Victor Valladares recent statement.

I will preface this piece with the admission that I am certainly no role model for acceptable behavior. I have many instances in my life of behavior that I am ashamed of.  But then again, I’m not the one trying to pass myself off as a leader. That being said, let’s move on to my response to Mr. Victor Valladares. -ed.

Editors note: In Order to establish the context of this post, I have updated it with the words of Victor Valladares Ex-Wife as a way for the reader to fully understand the nature of this post. They are published directly below:

“About two days after last Halloween, he was drunk again and got mad at me and in front of his two sisters, now 21 and 17 years old. He said to me he would cut my throat and watch me bleed out quicker than the cops could come to save me. He has thrown my kitten off a two- story balcony and his sister also witnessed that.”

“He got naked and was begging me to sleep with him. I told him no, over and over again, he started to get mad, I had my car keys in my hand with my finger in the loop. He grabbed my wrist and twisted it and started ripping the keys out of my hand. I started hitting him to let go of me but he just got stronger. After he got the keys he said that I wasn’t going to leave and demanded me to get his clothes for him. I told him to get them himself and that’s when he made a fist and made a gesture that he was going to hit me. I jumped up and ran for the door and he jumped up and grab my arm and pulled me back.”

“He has abused me verbally for over four years. Has called me a fat whore, a nasty bitch that is nothing but a nasty slut, a whore, cunt, bitch and many more things. He has threatened to kill my father in front of people.”

I will stop momentarily to display a video of Victor Valladares arguing with his Ex Father in law. Note the behavior of both men. The snarky attitude of Valladares speaking with the concerned father of his ex wife, who obviously has reason to despise him. It is obvious who is seeking conflict. His father in law tries to disengage and walk away. Valladares bird dogs him and plays coy with his questions. Much respect to the Father in law for not pounding him into the pavement. Perhaps that was Valladares objective…

“He put his forearm on my neck and told me I better tell him everything as he was pushing down with his forearm on my throat.”

“He has made many threats to me all while he is under the influence of beer. He has said he will never stop drinking and has been drinking for six years plus. He has a bad drinking problem. I get scared when he is intoxicated because he is mentally unstable and I don’t know what he’s capable of.”

“I’m asking him to move out and immediately check into a sober living program for his drinking. And not to harass stalk or follow me at home or my parents house.”

“I called the police. They came out and Victor wouldn’t open the door. I ended up driving to my dad’s house. In the morning he didn’t remember much because he was drunk the night before. He drinks every day and heavily and gets mad if I don’t have sex with him.”

Victor Valladares released a statement November 10th’ 2017 categorically denying the validity of the information presented by a guest contributor, Kristen Sullivan and published on HBSledgehammer.com, November 8th 2017, regarding his involvement in various forms of abuse inflicted on his ex wife.

Click here for Kristen Sullivan’s Post on Victor Valladares for an understanding of this dispute..

Here’s Victor’s response;


As expected, he deflects and denies all allegations, effectively painting both myself and his ex wife as a liar.

First, some background. This piece was written by Kristen Sullivan, a Democrat, who requested equal time to refute some of my assertions in the past and who is concerned  with the way her Party has come off the rails.

She submitted the piece regarding Valladares to me for review on November 6th, 2017 with no backup.

Naturally I was interested in publishing it, but refused to do so without the necessary backup to affirm her allegations.

I sat on the piece for a day, until I received the documentation necessary to substantiate the allegations and reviewed the documents in question. All of the authors records were obtained through public records searches.

After review, I deemed the piece fully vetted and elected to publish it.

I went as far as to confirm the details verbally with those affected.

The truth is an absolute and complete defense in any potential libel suit.

Victor is a public official. The First Amendment to the Constitution holds a special place for scrutiny of public officials.

It is not a “Hit Piece”.

As a father of three kids, I’m concerned about those who might be in leadership positions in the future and be in a position to enact policies that would create a negative impact on the lives of my kids.

Valladares is in no way qualified to lead.

His socialist political agenda is at stark odds with my own.

It’s not a “GOP” thing.

Certainly anybody that has read my work knows I have no compunction  about going after “Republicans” when they go off the rails.

It’s not a “racial ” thing. I embrace racial and cultural diversity,  despite the false accusations of my detractors. My issue is Illegal Immigration and the negative impacts it has on society and inept leadership that creates increasing hardship on California families.

I believe Valladares is a sociopath, pure and simple.

I’d like to take this opportunity to deconstruct Victor’s obviously  ghostwritten statement line by line.

No doubt, Victor put out a call for help in trying to spin this whole thing away.

The words on his statement are the words of consensus, drafted in concert with his supporters, vetted and approved for release after much agony, in a last ditch attempt to save his credibility.

Be aware, they are ultimately the words of a liar, one who is willing to throw his ex wife and the mother of his children, under the bus in a last ditch effort to salvage the wreckage of his personal behavior.

Please consider this…

The Statements of  Victor Valladares Ex Wife were given under oath and duly signed under penalty of perjury.

Far more convincing than the words of an individual releasing a “Statement” on a social media platform, designed for self promotion … One with no legal repercussions regarding the accuracy of the statement offered.

Facebook…is not a replacement for real life. Do not be fooled.

Go back and read the words of his ex wife. They reek of authentic details, offered up in resignation from someone resigned to the fact that they were married to an abuser and decided they have had enough.

Victor Valladares carefully crafted response stinks of desperation. The desperation of a cornered rat, fighting for an opportunity to escape a hungry house cat. The words of a desperate liar, caught in the act.

Judge for yourself…

Let’s have a look at his “response” and evaluate it.

It’s come to my attention that a vicious campaign to attack me is being comducted”.

Incorrect. This is a campaign to expose Victor Valladares for what he truly is. In my opinion, he is a sociopathic bully, unfit to lead.

In a reprehensible act of cowardice, a local Huntington Beach Resident who blogs under the pseudo name “Sledgehammer”….

Incorrect. My name is Chuck Johnson. It appears after every post that I write and publish. I’m not hiding from anyone. Hbsledgehammer.com is the name of the website, not the author.

who attempts to pass himself off as a “writer”…

I’m not attempting to pass myself off as a writer. My work speaks for itself. Feel free to enjoy it or despise it. I really don’t care.

and self proclaimed provocateur…”

One man’s provocateur is another man’s champion. It’s all a matter of perception. 

has written absolutely false, libelous and defamatory lies about me, my ex-wife, and our dissolution of marriage and subsequent custody issues…”

Incorrect: I have published nothing but the truth. I stand by every word I’ve published.

If anyone were guilty of that charge, it would be Victor Valladares by his inference that his ex-wife’s charges are false.

Victor is hiding behind a “her word vs. my word” defense and is displaying a loathsome defect of character consistent with his other behavioral problems.

Most people would tend to find this behavior reprehensible, with the exception of Victor’s associates and supporters, who tend to adopt an attitude that anything is fair, as long as they accomplish their goals…

“The ends justify the means”…

Make no mistake. This “Hit Piece” which attempts to defame my character is nothing more than a political smear”…

Incorrect: As I previously stated, I am the father of three kids. I’m concerned about those who might be in leadership positions in the future and possibly be in a position to enact policies and legislation that would create a negative impact on the lives of my kids.

I cannot stand idly by and watch as a person I consider to be a sociopath, ascends the ranks of political leadership, enabled  by people that are unaware of or simply do not care about about the serious defects of character displayed by Victor Valladares. 

By alt-right agitators who even the Republican Party disavows.”

Alt-Right” is a meaningless designation coined by the liberal media. It is now used in the hopes of  inferring a sinister intention on the part of the intended sluree and is employed whenever a progressive wishes to attempt to discredit someone with a conservative viewpoint.

It joined the ranks of “Neo-Con” and “Fascist” as a useless political buzzword after the 2016 election.

I have not been “disavowed” by anyone in the Republican Party with the exception of the RINO’s and fence straddlers that would sell their soul to get elected, the same ones that I go after and will continue to go after.

I know the “Republicans” Victor speaks of, and they will continue to hear it from me.

Political parties are meaningless and somewhat indistinguishable from one another anymore.

I just don’t care for unqualified leaders of either party, being elected to positions where the poor, politically motivated decisions they make, impact my family and myself in a negative way.

This person has continued to harass my family, my neighbors and my community on an almost daily basis. This is completely reckless.”

This is categorically false. Other than a recent telephone conversation when I inquired about a jailed illegal immigrant whom Victor was championing, I have had no contact with Victor Valladares, his neighbors nor the “Oak View” Community, if that is what you are referring to, in quite some time.

My “Community” is Huntington Beach.

Apparently Victor Valladares’s  “Community” is limited to the “Oak View” area.

The last face to face encounter Victor and I had was at a HB City Council meeting months ago, when Mr. Valladares followed me out to the back deck of the HB City Council chambers when i went outside to take a call and have a smoke and Victor   proceeded to start a loud argument.

And as far as “Reckless” goes, getting behind the wheel of a car while drunk, as Victor Valladares has done on multiple occasions, resulting in multiple arrests, rises to the top of what I or most people would consider “Reckless”.

 “What is the most heart breaking of all, is that [IMO] my ex-spouse who I still care about as a human being and respect as the mother of my children is working with this man to attack me.”

Victor claims to “respect” the “mother of his children”…yet she testified under oath that he called her foul names, physically and sexually abused her.

Victor Valladares  continues to harass her for daring to communicate with me.

She has the right to associate freely with anyone she chooses.

Valladares is frantic with anxiety over the fact that the only link to the truth behind his past and his behavior has bravely chosen to speak out about his defects of character and decency and has made numerous attempts  through threats, veiled or otherwise, and coercion tactics in an attempt to silence her.

Just as he uses threats of litigation in an attempt to silence my voice. Just as his mentor Gina Tarvin has done in connection with critical posts on social media. He has learned much from his mentor.

Valladares  should just consider himself fortunate to have such a dedicated and loving mother for his children. The only one who has attacked anybody…….is Victor Valladares which you shall see below.

“Her actions to conspire with this man are all documented…I have not done what she ssedly(sic)… “said under oath”

Why the “Quotation marks Victor?”

Here is where Victor Valladares crosses the Rubicon.

He has crossed the line of no return and has now publicly accused his ex wife of lying in a desperate bid to silence the truth, gambling all on her continued silence and the potential for people to consider the source.

Certainly not a bet I would be willing to make, considering the nature of Valladares accusations.

He is so defective that he is willing to throw his ex wife under the bus.

Valladares’s verbal abuse apparently continues…only now on a “social media” post.

Victor has elected to go “all in” and accuse his wife of lying. Not a wise move. The possibility of potential blowback is so severe, that again, it reeks of desperation.

Let’s hope Victor’s “Documentation” is better than the documents I will publish below.

Remember Bill Clinton? And the classic …” I did not have sexual relations with this woman”…

Harvey Weinstein. Anthony Wiener. Bill Cosby. Victor Valladares. 

It would be laughable, were it not so pathetic and false.

She never pressed charges because she knew they were false. The OCDA’s office could have and would have charged me irrespective indeed if there were a crime to prosecute. There wasn’t one.

This is a blatant logical fallacy.

“They did not charge me with a crime, therefore no crime took place.”


I inquired to an attorney friend of mine and received the following response…

” That assertion is ludicrous… The District Attorney is not required to prosecute people for crimes they are alleged to have committed. It is a discretionary function of his or her job. “

I think it’s safe to say from from the testimony of Victor Valladares ex wife that he is an unpredictable, alcoholic sociopath given to fits of drunken rage. Most women would probably fear a response.

Many women live with their abusers, afraid of the consequences that befall losing a breadwinner on a woman’s children and the economic uncertainty of a husband in jail.

Still others suffer from low self esteem and begin to think It’s their own fault for  being abused.

I tend to think It’s readily apparent why she refused to press charges and I think those not blinded by Victor’s charisma would see right through Victor’s statement.

No doubt the DA’s  office would refuse to prosecute a case in which the primary accuser refuses to testify, even if they have enough evidence to do so.

They evaluate cases on their ability to win them before an indictment. 

Without the primary witness, the case would be difficult to prove and not worth investing time in by a D.A. ‘s office already overburdened by thousands of cases

“This has yet to reported to the family court, but now will become a subject of legal action..”

Yet another threat.

Victor just can’t keep from shooting himself in the foot.

Again, Victor’s Ex Wife has every right to communicate with anybody she chooses. Unless there was a gag order in place on related issues, Mr. Valladares  past behavior is fair game and germane to the issue of custody.

I’m aware that at one point, Victor Valladares went so far as to list John Briscoe, Erik Peterson and Gina Tarvin as character witnesses in a custody hearing, with the hopes that their standing  as “Elected Officials would somehow lend credibility to his arguments.

I believe that Victor never even bothered to ask Peterson, on the assumption that he personally had enough clout to do so without asking.Briscoe and Tarvin, would probably comply with his request. They are his enablers and champions. Peterson seems to have wisely distanced himself from Victor, the monster he helped create by naming Victor to a city commission without adequately vetting him.

I’m not sure how that all worked out. No doubt I could find out if I so choose to do so.

 Victor’s Ex Wife and I have had minimal communication. The “conspiracy plot” exists only in  the anxious  mind of a man who is terrified of the reality of his past and the possibility of it coming to light, just as it is now. His reaction is hardly surprising.

I will be more than happy to testify on his Ex wife’s behalf regarding what we discussed. The vast majority of it pertained to her new infant son, who was a difficult pregnancy and not made any easier by her ex -husbands  self centered behavior.

What I do admit to having, in the past, a problem with drinking and DUI’s.  I regret this, have been punished for it and have paid my debt to society, as I should….”

Let’s look at that statement light of what Victor’s Ex-Wife had to say about it. She described his drinking problem. It is pretty apparent that Victor  Valladares displays the behavior of an alcoholic.

If you ask anyone who is an alcoholic or has been involved in a relationship with one, the only cure is total abstinence.

Yet Victor still is actively drinking.


A common delusion that many alcoholics possess is that somehow, they are different from other people and have the ability to control their drinking and that they “have it under control”.

Victor seems to think that he has found the magic cure for alcoholism and now can drink like an “Ordinary Gentleman”.

Apparently  Victor Valladares has not learned a thing from the 12 step programs he was no doubt mandated to attend  as a condition of his sentencing for multiple DUI’s.

His behavior is eerily  similar to that of his friend and mentor, Vern Pat Nelson, Editor of the Orange Juice Blog, who is facing a sentencing hearing soon for a felony 5th DUI and has been accused of sexual harassment by Anaheim Mayoral candidate,  Lorri Galloway. Nelson also issued a predictable blanket denial.

” I vehemently deny any and all of these charges made by this blogger  and intend to assert my rights to undertake litigation to stop this pervasive “character assassination”

Why, of course Victor  denies any and all charges.

No doubt he thinks this is  a “He said-She said” situation and his charisma and charm will carry the day.

Hes been able to fool people for quite a while already… why would he think he couldn’t pull it off again?

Regarding ” Litigation” ?

Bring it. I have all the documentation to prove my case ( and more), and as stated, the truth is an absolute and complete defense to any charges of libel,…if he can find an attorney stupid enough to take his case, then go for it. It will be a pleasure to dismantle his pathetic arguments.

Just make sure you let him read this first.

All the way through.

“No matter which party you belong to, you know that this sort of depraved behavior and out of control behavior needs to stop if we are to move forward together as one in this country. Please continue to stand with me for what we know is right.”

Look no further than the video below for a fine example of depraved and out of control behavior. After watching that,and reading about his treatment of his Ex wife I’m not sure I want to stand anywhere close to Victor Valladares. Leave me out of your “togetherness”.

Valladares is trying to walk into politics backwards. Most politicians develop a degree of personal success before venturing into politics. Valladares has no professional skills to speak of. Its obvious he wants to be on the public payroll as a politician as a career.

Let’s take a look at some of Victor Valladares  recent behavior. I will let you decide whether he exercises sound judgement and  whether or not he displays the qualities one looks for in a potential leader.

After reading the documents posted below, the testimony of his ex wife and observing Mr. Valladares lack of good judgement, Ask yourself if this is the type of “Leader” you want for your kids at any level? City, State or Nation…?

Who the hell would be stupid enough to post a video like the one below on their Facebook page? 

The fact that the video below was quickly  deleted from his Facebook page was perhaps the only example of sound judgement he has offered.

Unfortunately for Victor, there is an army of people that are more than happy to provide everything required to paint an accurate picture of reality, unlike Victor’s “Alt-reality” version.

The video you will see below was shot at a Seattle gay bar, R Place November 10th, 2017.  Victor Valladares  features prominently in the initial footage.

I have no comment on Victor’s sexuality. Certainly that is his own prerogative.

I won’t  even comment on his Kim Jong Un haircut. I’m no hairstyle shamer.

Most people are smart enough not to broadcast themselves shirtless especially when it involves a simulated BJ from a fat ugly drag queen while half naked male dancers are watching from the wings.

Perhaps Victor was just there for the “Great music”.

Victor’s recent trip, was probably financed by his sugar daddy, Doug Applegate, who in yet another strange twist of fate, is now facing charges of his own… Click here for details.

Is this the type of absolute lack of prudent judgement that you want in a leader?

Below you will find the documents sent to me by the author of the piece in question. Read them and form your own opinion regarding who is the liar in this case. I think you will arrive at the same conclusion I did regarding who is truthful.

For anybody that wants to discredit the source, you only continue to discredit yourselves if you choose to continue to support this man.

If this is the best the Democrat party can do, surely it will be a cakewalk to retain and win new seats for the GOP.

I still have some files that I am sitting on lest this prove insufficient to convince even the most ardent admirer of Victor Valladares.

I’ll ask the question one more time. Is this the kind of leader you want in your children’s future? Or your own for that matter?…I’ll pass.

And whats a HBSledgehammer post without a good punk song? You thought I forgot?

All statements are the opinion of the author.



It’s time for the Democratic Party of Orange County to reject Victor Valladares.

Physical Abuse. Mental Abuse. Sexual Abuse. Animal Abuse. Alcohol Abuse.

Not long ago, I wrote on this blog that I felt it was important to Orange County Democrats that “rising star” activist and Central Committee 72 AD member Victor Valladares finally address his lengthy arrest record. He has yet to do so publicly and to my knowledge has not shared any specific details with party leaders. When the topic is brought up he seems to do little more than attack the messenger, or outright deny that there’s even any evidence of an extensive record.

In February 2014, he was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. That arrest also included a resisting public officer charge and he pled guilty to both of these crimes. Within just a year he had violated probation, was taken into custody, and placed on three years probation. The records also show that in May of 2015 he was sentenced to 60 days in jail and then placed in an 18-month multiple offender alcohol program.

He’s now on probation until August 2019 according to these court records. He has also been forced to attend victim impact counseling. There is more in regards to the drinking, there are other convictions, but for me, nothing as serious as case #130005854. These are the domestic violence charges, filed by his former wife, in 2013. One incident in question took place 6/23/13, and the report was filed the next day.

These are some of the direct quotes from the report:

“About two days after last Halloween, he was drunk again and got mad at me and in front of his two sisters, now 21 and 17 years old. He said to me he would cut my throat and watch me bleed out quicker than the cops could come to save me. He has thrown my kitten off a two- story balcony and his sister also witnessed that.”

“He got naked and was begging me to sleep with him. I told him no, over and over again, he started to get mad, I had my car keys in my hand with my finger in the loop. He grabbed my wrist and twisted it and started ripping the keys out of my hand. I started hitting him to let go of me but he just got stronger. After he got the keys he said that I wasn’t going to leave and demanded me to get his clothes for him. I told him to get them himself and that’s when he made a fist and made a gesture that he was going to hit me. I jumped up and ran for the door and he jumped up and grab my arm and pulled me back.”

“He has abused me verbally for over four years. Has called me a fat whore, a nasty bitch that is nothing but a nasty slut, a whore, cunt, bitch and many more things. He has threatened to kill my father in front of people.”

I read his ex-wife’s words and I want to cry. They haunt me. I lose sleep over the thought of a mother who is so petrified that she can hardly function.

“He put his forearm on my neck and told me I better tell him everything as he was pushing down with his forearm on my throat.”

“He has made many threats to me all while he is under the influence of beer. He has said he will never stop drinking and has been drinking for six years plus. He has a bad drinking problem. I get scared when he is intoxicated because he is mentally unstable and I don’t know what he’s capable of.”

“I’m asking him to move out and immediately check into a sober living program for his drinking. And not to harass stalk or follow me at home or my parents house.”

“I called the police. They came out and Victor wouldn’t open the door. I ended up driving to my dad’s house. In the morning he didn’t remember much because he was drunk the night before. He drinks every day and heavily and gets mad if I don’t have sex with him.”

Let those words sink in.

Jose Moreno, Jeff LeTourneau, Greg Diamond, John Briscoe and other men that mentor and help groom Victor, did you ever vet him? These are public records. What kind of “men” are you?


More importantly, given the brutality of these words, what about all the women that support Victor? I’m talking to you Connie Boardman, Lorraine Pinsky, Margaret Friedman, Monica Brasov-Curca, Nina Chapman, Lorena Ortega, Mirvette Judeh, Farrah N. Khan, Diana Carey and especially Gina Clayton-Tarvin. Let’s give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you know nothing, which I highly doubt. What do you say now about these charges?

I have learned that the victim in this case ended up not pressing charges. Why? Because she feared for her safety. There are photos in the case file that show some of the bruises.

With charges of physical abuse, verbal abuse, mental abuse and even animal abuse, in my opinion it’s time for OC Democrats to outright reject Victor Valladeres on all levels. Community leader? This is outrageous. If he was a Republican, many of us would be going crazy over the lack of provided information on his background. We can’t have a double standard. We need to demand these answers equally, from both sides when people decide to step into the public arena of politics.

Maybe he will say she is lying. That is what he says about everybody there criticizes him. But she made the statements under oath. If she’s lying, that would be perjury, which is a felony which could carry major jail time. Would she really risk being separated from her children to make up the stories? And what about the photos of her that were taken the day after she reported the incident? Did she make those up too?

She swore under oath that these things happened. Is Victor willing to swear under oath that they didn’t?

To get a real sense of this person, just look at the images he posted recently. Think about what his former wife said about his beer drinking and his behavior. Think about the 18-month alcohol program he just finished. Think about the DUI offenses. And then look at what he choose to post just a week or two ago.

Can this person be trusted?

Editors note: This piece was fully vetted for accuracy and truthfulness. If Victor Valladares wants to challenge any of these assertions for accuracy and honesty, an invitation stands.

If it can be proven that any of these allegations are false, I will gladly issue a retraction and an apology.

But that will never happen.

Deflect. Deny. I will answer your Facebook post line by line.

You’ve got my phone number Victor. 

Call me anytime.

You are a liar. Flat out. I have proof. You can spin it any way you like Victor. And watch your credibility crumble…like your ex wife did under your blows. The sad part  about your threats of litigation…when I countersue  and win a judgement,you don’t have shit to attach.

You can’t even pay your child support.

So just like Schenkman and his dick shriveling with his threatened districting  lawsuit you tried to initiate before the blowback became too intense,  you will slink off into the shadows of obscurity. 

If you think you have a chance at prevailing in a lawsuit,  by all means…bring it.

The truth is an absolute and complete defense. I’ll sleep easy tonite Victor.

You?  Not so much.

By the way, stay out of gay bars and drag shows in Seattle. And by all means, don’t get a simulated blowjob from a fat drag queen…

Somebody might send me the video.

Oh heck…what do you know…

They already did! Imagine that.

You’re such a liar…

Para Bellum.
