Jon Fleischman's FlashReport For California Republicans Gains LA Times Attention

Flash Jon 5.jpg

Orange County's Jon Fleischman, the youthful grand daddy of powerful California Republican bloggers, earned a noteworthy news story in today's Los Angeles Times.

Though he has plenty of critics, routinely treats me with outright contempt (I wasn't good for his onetime boss Sheriff Mike Carona) and strictly obeys a sense of personal loyalty to those who share his political philosophy, Fleischman's informative online operation deserved the attention.

As the Times story notes, the FlashReport is a key daily factor in California politics.

Times reporter James Rainey did a fair job but didn't necessarily break any new ground for those of us in OC. His key point was that Fleischman's publication can influence state government even at the highest levels and in the middle of the night.

Fleischman's allies aren't sure how to react to the story. Conservatives in California hate the LA Times and are always suspicious of its content. But this story--inadvertently or not--accurately made the case Fleischman is a heavyweight in state GOP affairs.

One key omission however is that Fleischman is the inseparable pal to former California Republican Party chairman, a Santa Ana chiropractic insurance king and longtime Times-hater Michael J. Schroeder, arguably OC's most influential GOP insider.

Jon Fleischman needs to get the hell out of any type of politics!  Based on personal experience, Fleischman, once disguised as an OC Sheriff reserve officer, repeatedly placed a potential adversary's home under surveillance.... "suspicious activity" were the key words for the surveillance when Fleischman was caught in an unmarked black towncar with a computer on his lap. 

 

 

As to chiropractic insurance king and his wife, conveniently the Chief of Staff for the Orange County District Attorney, hopefully one day, someone will nail you and others for destroying so many reputations and careers.  You deserve to ROT somewhere cold and dark.

A great piece in the LA times--Thanks for the pointer.  As long as we have folk like Fleischman, and people fearful of his power, the Republican party will continue throwing more bodies outside it's compound day by day.

As their "ideology" becomes reduced to intransigence-as-policy, as they become more absorbed on finding and exposing RINO's in their midst, they will continue to dismember themselves one digit a time.  Think Monty Python: "It's a flesh wound!"

What could be more fun!  Go Fleischman!

Is it just me, or do others agree that Mr. Fuckschroeder's comment is the verbal equivalent of maliciously projected vomit? A rhetorical nadir, I think. Not that I wish to defend the Schroeders. But these kinds of comments are a sign that the end is near.

I'm sorry I must have missed the praise in this story? Each one of these quotes are meant as a back handed compliment.

"Though he has plenty of critics, routinely treats me with outright contempt"

"strictly obeys a sense of personal loyalty to those who share his political philosophy"

"Conservatives in California hate the LA Times and are always suspicious of its content"

"One key omission however is that Fleischman is the inseparable pal to former California Republican Party chairman, a Santa Ana chiropractic insurance king and longtime Times-hater Michael J. Schroeder, arguably OC's most influential GOP insider"

I have to hand it to Moxley though... Most of your readers don't have the critical reading skills to pick up on the nuances of Moxleys prose. You make it appear as though its praise, when in reality its another Republican smear piece.

To 909Jeff..... you are very wrong!  Most of Moxley's readers developed and continue to develop critical reading AND analytical skills because of investigative reports of Moxley and other OC Weekly journalists.

I have to say I'm a little disappointed that it took this long to get you to pipe up with your usual comment.  Cant say I didnt expect it though... So predictable.

Thanks SP 909er! I'm always humored by your cowardly babble from the windowless basement. Try to get some fresh air today.
