Every OVSD voter owes a huge debt of gratitude to 47th district Republican Congressional candidate, David Clifford.
Clifford lost his primary race against carpetbagging John F. Briscoe, who pulled every ratty campaign sign he ever paid for out of his storage facility and plastered them all over a Congressional District he dosent even live in.
Clifford and I shared a good laugh, as it appeared as though some of Briscoes campaign signs had been fabricated in the Vietnam war era, and were dirty and bent to shit.
Unfortunately, many uniformed voters cast their votes for the guy with the most signs or glossiest mailers…
If any of these “Low Information” voters had bothered to investigate Briscoe, they would have arrived at the same opinion as me….that this man is an unqualified loon, unfit for ANY office, let alone a Congressional one.
Clifford did fantastic in his rookie outing, garnering the endorsements of both the LA and OC County GOP…the same ones that avoided Briscoe like that smelly bum that sits down next to you on a bus, causing you to get up and move to avoid his insane ramblings and noticeable stench.
The utter irony in all this?
Although we lost an opportunity to field a solid candidate against Lowenthal in the 47th, we gained something good in the process.
Since Briscoe is now running in the Congressional General Election, he cannot run for OVSD again.
That seat will now open up for a true conservative.
And Briscoe will he embarrassingly trounced by Lowenthal come November.
Which means….Briscoe is finished politically.
As he should be.
This man isn’t qualified to run for dog catcher, let alone congress.
Clifford, on the other hand,has a bright future in the coming years,as he learns the ropes and continues to garner support for his next run.
To the Republicans in the 47th, I don’t say you need to vote for Lowenthal. When you hit that spot on your ballot, just keep going, and leave it blank.
Don’t reward Briscoe with even one vote.
Push him out the political door forever, where he belongs.
And to anybody that endorses Briscoe in this race, I have a long memory. To endorse this asshat simply because he is the “Republican” in the race, I not much different than endorsing Alfred E. Newman because their is an R next to his name.
Well, a few days have passed, and Smilin’ John Briscoe hasn’t popped up on Social Media to tout his carpetbagging candidacy in the 47th Congressional district against Party Endorsed Candidate, David Clifford.
While we wait for the final pieces of confirmation to roll in, proving Gina Clayton-Tarvin was lying through her teeth when she claimed to have “hunkered down on the floor with her terrified students with a gunman lurking nearby”, in order to embellish her calls for gun control, I wanted to share a hilarious aside that showed up in my inbox the other day.
Apparently, John F.Briscoe has pulled papers to run for Congress in the 47th district.
Yeah, I know.
I’ll wait till you stop laughing before proceeding…
Ok… done now?
This would actually be side-splitting funny, it were not so pathetically sad.
It seems Briscoe is in the grips of the same delusional hallucinations generated by the narcissistic personality disorder that his fellow OVSD Trustee Gina Clayton- Tarvin suffers from.
Perhaps its contagious.
After the economic meltdown of 2008, and the resulting damage my family suffered at the hands of useless, self absorbed, unqualified, ineffective politicians, I made it my new mission in life to call out the phonies and clowns that were part of the problem, and the upstarts that appeared to simply wish to continue the clown parade, regardless of their political affiliation
With regards to the GOP Pols that I called out, I was chastised by others for violating the unwritten law…” Thou shalt not criticize another Republican”.
That is the kind of thinking that got us into the meltdown mess to begin with.
The old boy network of backslapping, baby kissing, sloganeering, do nothing douche-bags that would back candidates based on Party loyalty, cash on hand and the overall length of their ass kissing apprenticeship in the Party system.
There is already a strong GOP candidate running in the 47th district in David Clifford, a true conservative, running on a traditional platform.
Clifford is a non-politician….a blue collar business owner, that actually understands meeting a payroll and working his ass off to pay the bills.
One that actually lives in the district he represents, unlike the slimy carpetbagger, John Briscoe.
Contrast that with John Briscoe, who runs a property management company that has been characterized online as that of a slumlord and appears to be guilty of petty retribution against those who bother to complain about conditions at the properties he manages and bedbug infestation, among other things…
John Briscoe is an embarrassment to the Republican Party.
His constant buffoonery and self promoting antics are difficult to suffer through and have grown intolerable.
His alignment with ultra liberal leftist Tarvin on a wide variety of issues, betrays the carefully crafted, “In God We Trust”, image he seeks to portray.
Briscoe has sued the City of Huntington Beach for employment records, because he wasn’t satisfied with the individual the City hired as an inspector, one that failed to deliver results aligned with Briscoe’s joint effort with Clayton-Tarvin, to garner face time and relevancy by conducting a slur campaign against Republic Services.
What would have happened if Briscoe’s crusade to find out the background of an inspector he didn’t like resulted in that individual’s termination?
The City would then be subject to a wrongful termination lawsuit.
OVSD and Briscoe have no right to second guess the Human Resources decisions of another public agency, regardless of there perception of the qualifications of a City employee.
The fact that he gloated about it and posted zany rants in social media bad mouthing HB City Attorney Michael Gates, a man that handed Briscoe his ass when both ran for OC GOP Central committee, just reinforces the perception that Briscoe is unhinged.
OVSD was the agency that was stupid enough to site portables, housing pre-schoolers, directly across from a trash dump then demand that the dump fully enclose its operations, resulting in the aforementioned lawsuit.
If anybody needs further proof that John Briscoe is a nut job, one needs to look no further than this ridiculous email sent by Briscoe to Gina Clayton-Tarvin, blowing his horn about how “Literate” he is…
Briscoe appears to be fully on board for OVSD’s attempt to interfere in a private party transaction between Republic and Public Storage Inc. A pet project of his co-conspirator Gina Clayton- Tarvin, to transfer the land to her friend and crony, Mary Urashima.
The resulting stalemate has left the blighted parcel in limbo for years.
Republicans believe in the sanctity of private property and resent government intrusion and such interference.
Briscoe, it appears does not hold these views and aligns fully with far left loon, Clayton-Tarvin, who has filled pages of this blog with her insane activity.
Thankfully, the Party has gotten wise to the real John Briscoe, and is creating some distance, in much the same way one moves quietly away from a smelly hobo who sits down next to you on a bus.
Clifford has what it takes to duke it out with Alan Lowenthal, who barely squeaked out a win in the 2014 mid terms, when turnout was low.
2018 promises to be an opportunity to take back a seat that was once a solid Republican stronghold and Clifford deserves all the Party support available, to make a solid go at flipping the 47th back into Republican hands.
No doubt Clifford will hand Briscoe his ass on a plate in the primaries and make the cut to the general election.
The fact that he has to endure a distraction from this unqualified, carpetbagging poser is unfortunate.
But when it comes to John Briscoe, It’s certainly not unexpected.
Trust me. CPRA Requests and personal encounters with Mr. Briscoe have resulted in a wealth of data that paints a picture of who this man really is.
