Heather Greven, Campaign Manager For Janz For Congress Is Illustrative of Corruption in The Democrats Party

The Democrats admitted in court proceedings to not being…. democratic.

Heather Greven, from the Bay Area, is completely in tune with the corrupt heart of The Democrats and DNC, choosing to lie and evade rather than answer a simple question.

Why did @janzforcongress claim billboards by known fraud Scott Dworkin were put up by constituents?

As Ms. Greven told me to continue “screaming into the echo chamber,” I did what any self respecting Fresnan would do and I wrote my Congressman.

The letter is attached:

__________

 

Hon Rep. Costa,

My name is (REDACTED)

I am writing to inform you how divisive politics, which I believe to be “identity politics” has been used by Andrew Janz campaign manager to lie and deceive. And slander myself on twitter.

So you have some idea of how she is incorrect, I have to tell you a little bit about myself.

I was born in Wenatchee, WA in 1969, moved to Phoenix when 2, then to Fresno in 1977 the summer before I started second grade.

I attended Easterby Elementary in south east Fresno from second to fifth grade. At the start of my 6th grade year I was sent to Holland Project TALENT (now Bullard TALENT), the first magnet school in FUSD.

Mrs. Harris was my principal. Her son Leon was my basketball coach. My 6th grade teacher, Mrs. Mendes, was one of my favorite teachers. My 7th grade homeroom teacher, Mrs. Hetrick was disabled, with what I believe was a congenital hip condition.

You may know other famous Fresnans who attended Holland Project TALENT. Audra McDonald started there the third year (I believe). She was in 7th grade when I was in 8th grade.

The school was pretty diverse in staff, mostly women. The drama teacher whom I shared wtih Audra (and I have not .01% of her talent) was a black woman whose name I have forgotten over the years.

I graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1987. My friend from Holland and Roosevelt, Rabbi Elliott Tepperman was arrested protesting for Dreamers in Congressman Rep. Lance’s office. I have advocated for Dreamers online on my variou social media channels and am also trying to shame Rep. Lance into dropping charges simultaneously.

I believe I was taught by some of the best teachers in FUSD, both at Holland where the staff was handpicked district wide and at Roosevelt where Mr. Sischo and the staff were extremely dedicated to the students.

I believe this is borne out by the record of Roosevelt in the 80’s in the Academic Decathlon where we were district champs for years. The team my year finished second in the state.

I have family in Tulare County that came here during the Dust Bowl. My dads grandpa, a WWI veteran lost his farm in Missouri and settled in Tulare where he worked fields and started a second family.

My grandma, who was a teenager was left in Missouri. She married my dads dad, and moved to Idaho where his family settled.

My moms dad lost his farm in Kansas, and made his way west with a young family with stops in Utah, Nevada, Central Valley (Madera, Salinas) before going to Idaho.

My great grandpa married a Hispanic/American Indian woman and had a second family. Thus my family is ethnically diverse.

I have a picture of my grandma, in her 60’s visiting her half sisters in Tulare in the late 70’s or early 80’s. There is no difficulty picking out my Swedish grandma in that picture.

My Dad volunteered for US navy in 60’s when his deferments were up. He was sent to Officer Candidates School then supply school and served on USS Reeves in the Sea of Japan.

Mom and Dad were lucky as young Lt Jg to be able to live in Japan off base and experience living in a Japanese “modern” dwelling. It had paper walls and indoor plumbing. They loved Japan.

Returning to the US after getting out of the Navy, Dad answered an ad in the Twin Falls paper and was hired by Crawford & Company, an independent adjusting firm. It was with them he was promoted to Branch Manger and why we moved to Fresno.

I believe music can convey information and teach. I would give you 3 songs to both describe me, and how I feel about Ms. Greven’s treatment of myself.

I believe Ms. Greven disdains me for my question about why Mr. Janz twitter account @janzforcongress claimed billboards by a known to DEMOCRATS fraud Scott Dworkin (@funder) were claimed by the account to have been put up by “constituents.”

The tweet in question LINKS the Fresno Bee article wherein the correct PAC, Scott Dworkins PAC was identified. Why the lie?

Ms. Greven is from the East Bay, and her treatment of me is very familiar to how others from the Bay Area have treated people.

She labeled me a “conservative” and pinned the tweet with the blog I wrote about her.

Why did I write that she was a “scumbag”? She told me to keep “screaming into the echo chamber.”

The same BLOG she linked to has my blog calling Donald Trump a xenophobe and extremist in 2015, support for a LGBT advocate beaten at work, Jacie Leopold. I have advocated for gay marriage and gay rights nationally and helped boycott Indiana when Pence signed his discriminatory bill.

Rep Costa, Judge Oppliger was friends of my parents and his son Trevor, now also a DDA like Mr. Janz was a child hood friend.

Never in my wildest dreams would I think that a campaign by a Fresno DA would lie about me.

Especially one promising to serve everyone with honesty, integrity, etc, etc.

No one owes a Democrat their vote. Anyone questioning a Democrat candidate is NOT a conservative.

There is a lot of converage of Mr. Dworkin in main stream media and the left. Splinter, Daily Beast covered his allaged fraudulent PAC. The Daily KOS and ProgressiveArmy.com have written about him. Democrat opposition researcher Will Caskey wrote about him in 2017 on his Medium.

The campaign of @janzforcongress not only claimed Scott Dworkin’s billboards were put up by constituents, the campaign solicited aid from Dworkin and thanked him for it.

How is this different from the shady acts of other Congressman?

Glenn Greenwald on his twitter said,

I believe Ms. Greven signifies the failing of both parties. Divisiveness, by design, and attack a person attacking a question rather than address the issue.

As you consider the health of The Democrats know that people ARE choosing to walk away and this is seen by votes for The Greens which are costing Democrats to some degree.

How do I know this?

Andrew Janz friend in Hollywood Alyssa Milano told me so.

Alyssa Milano retweeted this tweet by @janzforcongress.

No US citizen owes a Democrat their vote. It is unfair to categorize every Green voter and vote as a “protest” vote.

“honesty and integrity.”

I respectfully disagree.

I am a disabled Fresnan subsequent to a fall off a 2 story roof at work. Heather Greven is a hater from the Bay Area deflecting from pertinent inquiries into the campaign.

Andrew Janz is just, “more of the same.”

Heather Greven, Campaign Manager for Andrew Janz, is a Political Scumbag. #CA22

Replacing an alleged liar with a known liar is not progress.

I had pinned my hopes on Andrew Janz, Deputy District Attorney in his race to beat Devin Nunes, Republican incumbent in California 22.

After all I had written about the xenophobia of Donald Trump back in 2015 and had watched as White Nationalists had taken over the GOP despite my admonitions against such networking.

Unfortunately Andrew Janz, as Progressives have written in the Fresno Bee, is “More of the same.”

Andrew Janz is the change we need. That is, no change at all! After all, better the devil you know.

 

He and his campaign manager Heather Greven are the same sort of swamp monsters and corrupt politicians that inhabit Washington D.C. now.

My great grandfather settled in Tulare during the Dust Bowl and I have a large, multicultural family in Tulare County.

Though I do not reside inside Congressional district 22, I do reside in Fresno County where Mr. Janz is a deputy district attorney for the Fresno County DA’s office.

I grew up with a coworker of Mr. Janz, Trevor Oppliger.  Judge Oppliger was friends with my parents.

My uncle is retired CHP and was Public Affairs Officer for the Visalia CHP.    He is currently working for Tulare County DA”s office as an investigator.

How do I know that Janz is a fundamentally dishonest politician?

He claimed that billboards that were funded by known scammer/grifter Scott Dworkin were put up by “constituents.”

 

The billboards were actually funded by Scott Dworkin, a well known scammer and PAC operator.

The visible link to click on Dworkin’s twitter account go to a Democratic Coalition landing page.

According to Splinter, the PAC Dworkin funneled the donations he raised to,

According to a piece out on Wednesday by The Daily Beast, one of these new anti-Trump PACs, the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, has been sinking its donors’ money into consultants and its own legal expenses rather than tangible action to fight back against the president.

Journalist Greg Greenwald notes that,

In fact, this charlatan exposed as a profiteer & grifter not only claims to be one of the “leaders” of the but also says he’s an “ on MSNBC contributor.”

The coverage by the Fresno Bee which @janzforcongress correctly identified the PAC behind the billboards but did not explicitly link scammer Dworkin, instead identifying Nate Lerner as the spokesperson.

 

Nate Lerner, co-founder of the Democratic Coalition, said his group used email and social media to raise $2,500 in a matter of days to pay for the billboard. The average donation was $19, he said.

https://twitter.com/funder/status/963831212392501254

That a known scammer/grifter is raising funds is an omission that is highly relevant to this coverage by Fresno Bee.

Yet that fact was left out of coverage.

Why did Andrew Janz claim that the billboards were done by “constituents?”

@realfirenunes, a prominent social media supporter of Janz  knew those billboards weren’t by “constituents.”

@janzforcongress has connected on twitter with @realfirenunes many times since the @realfirenunes account was created in Febuary, 2017.

An Advanced Twitter Search reveals the depth of the public contacts.

The @realfirenunes account claims to be run by concerned cosntituents.

Why, when I questioned well known Nunes suppoter @realfirenunes, did Heather Greven choose to attack me for asking the question?

And why is an anonymous troll accusing me of being a Beer and Psalms account? That’s not my account. lol.

 

The lies, deflection and character assasination/smears are precisley what is wrong with Congress NOW.  Why send Janz to DC when we can have all that from him on Twitter and not give him any ability or power to do more damage?

“America Person” Don Blankenship Shatters The GOP

In 2015 I wrote about the rising tide of Xenophobia I was seeing and feeling in the GOP.

As a Republican this was worrying, however the party saw fit to nominate (and the country elect) Donald Trump.

This has only emboldened the worst dregs of society to crawl out of the swamps and into Washington DC.

Or at least they are trying.

It was no accident Richard Spencer showed up in Washington DC close to the inaurguration. The “alt right” expected to be welcomed into power with open arms.

Their being “disavowed” by Donald Trump was a surprise to them.

However the same mechanism that networked on Twitter, and promoted the spread of what has become active nazis, still openly exists and can do the same thing in any election.

Then Lone Conservative editor Brian Brathovd, featured in this video with Milo Y saying “hi” to then Breitbart Contributor Kassy Dillon, is NOW Richard B. Spencer’s bodyguard and a Daily Stormer contributor (according to Brians Gab.ai account, @caerulus_rex.)

 

The prominence of the “alt right” social media stars is mentioned elsewhere and their rise chronicled by Joe Bernstein of Buzzfeed.

Don Blankenship is a convict who chose to run for US Senate in West Virginia.

Mr. Blankenship was CEO of Massey Energy Company, was charged with multiple charges, including felony conspiracy for his role in a mine explosion that killed 29 miners.

Mr. Blankenship was convicted of  one misdemeanor charge of conspiring to willfully violate mine safety and health standards and sentenced to one year in prison and a $250,00.00 fine.

 

Fresno Bee journalist Mackenzie Mays is from West Virginia and speaks of the impact of the mine explosion on her life.  And the impact on her community.

Mr. Blankenship has taken to denouncing people as not an “America person.”

In Mr. blankenship’s “Post-Election Statement” Mr. Blankenship says,

P.S. Mitch McConnell’s cocaine tweet is just more proof that he is not an America person.

In the spirit of denouncing, I’d like to denouce Don Blankenship as a royal asshole and defintely NOT an American.

Let me tell you why I believe this.

My family came to America in the 1600’s.  We settled all across the Eastern seaboard, north and south.

Over time my family migrated west, and my grandparents and great grandparents ended up in Kansas and Missouri.

I’m not certain who fought on which side of that Civil War, but I’d assume I had family on both sides.

Fast forward to WW1.  My great grandfather served in France in the American Expeditionary Forces.

Returning home to Missouri to farm, his farm up and blew away in the Dust Bowl.  He left his teenage daughter, (my grandmother) with his family and migrated to Tulare, CA where he worked fields and started a second family.

Marrying a local woman, he started a new family. (my cousins pictured here.)

My uncle, pictured in back, is a USAF veteran (enlisted), retired CHP and currently a Tulare County DA’s office investigator and grows produce in the Central Valley of CA near Exeter.

My grandparents also lost farms in Missouri and Kansas and migrated west.

My moms dad worked on New Deal public works projects in Idaho.  He was a carpenter.  Due to the WW2 war effort, he also mined during WW2 near Elko, NV, being to old for the draft.

My great uncle was a pipe fitter building ships for US Navy in Portland.

As working class people, my grandparents raised families, and my parents were among the first to go to college.

I have relatives that served in nearly every war, with an Uncle in Korea, another stationed in Fort Ord in inter war period and my dad volunteered for the US Navy after his deferments were up.

My ex father in law, a Marine, became a psych tech and program director before retiring as Acting Director (I believe) at Porterville Developmental Center.

My ex wifes family also has people working at PDC.

My dad volunteered after college and went to OCS, then to Supply School, serving on USS Reeves, as an officer, in the Sea of Japan. Their mission was to escort aircraft carriers and rescue downed pilots, and the occasional “boat person” refugee.

Small town Idaho is unique in that emergency services don’t get done unless the locals do them.

My cousins ran EMS out of the family store.    One cousin got her degree and moved to San Francisco where she’s a surgical nurse.

M eldest cousin does heavy construction work, after learning to drive on my grandpas lap at age 5 or so.

My grandpa started wtih a mule team, and began trucking and doing baling for farmers, amongst other odd jobs.

Here’s my cousin and his company hard at work on the US Naval Reservation near USS Arizona and Missouri.

*I’m not sure where this picture was taken, I suspect Utah, but my cousin digs BIG holes.

If you are lost in the backcountry my “Deplorable” cousins are the people that CAN and WILL rescue you.  My family aren’t the kind of people to abandon you in a dark mine.

My dad is a  retired Claims Manager for a large third party adminstrator/independent claims adjusting firm out of Atlanta, GA.

Childhood friends from Fresno grew up to work for the GOP, working for Governor Pete Wilson (R) and doing lobbying in DC.

They also wrote Netfile, the system the FEC uses to track campaign donations after graduating from Fresno State.

Another childhood friend, T. Oppliger, is now a Deputy District Attorney in Fresno (son of Judge Oppliger) and works with Democrat candidate Andrew Janz.

Mr. Janz is challenging incumbent nincompoop, Devin Nunes, for California District 22.

I don’t recognize Devin Nunes as a Republican according to my lights, nor Don Blankenship.

I believe the party is extremely damaged, AND unwilling to take corrective course to disassociate with the nazis and white nationalists racists running for office.

I don’t believe Don Blankenship is much of an American, at all. I think he’s a horrible employer and a safety risk to anyone working for him.

I fear that the rise of nazis in the GOP is NOT an aberration. It’s a natural outgrowth of the coalition building undertaken by GOP during the election.

I am supporting Andrew Janz for Congress as a result.
