SAN DIEGO GOP Scandal Gathers Steam! Part 2 of a Series of national stories on San Diego GOP Chairman Tony Krvaric's Criminal History.

The San Diego Republican Party scandal continues to gather nationwide attention. Raw Story, a prominent internet news service with 3.2 million readers, has just published its 2nd part in a series of articles exposing the corruption and criminal history of San Diego Republican Party Chairman Tony Krvaric. The James Hartline Report has received an enormous number of emails and telephone calls from various parties involved in this situation. Many party followers are calling for Krvaric to resign. Krvaric's friends are demanding that the party faithful stand by their man. It appears that those who are bound and determined to stand with Krvaric are those who believe they have been promised leadership roles within the party under Krvaric's watch.

A sinking ship is still a sinking ship, no matter how many try to throw water overboard!
San Diego Republicans react to chairman's piracy past
Miriam RafteryPublished: Wednesday April 30, 2008


In Part I of this series, RawStory revealed that Tony Krvaric, chair of the San Diego Republican Party and head of the California GOP’s Finance Committee, co-founded an international piracy ring known as Fairlight.
Kvaric was appointed to head the California Republican Party budget committee by his mentor, party chairman Ron Nehring, who is himself a protégé of conservative strategist Grover Norquist. RAW STORY has previously reported on earlier controversies involving Nehring, including his push for school privatization and the controversy surrounding his appointment by Governor Schwarzenegger to an education coalition.
Nehring has recently drawn criticism from prominent Republicans for two other questionable appointments. Following revelations that he hired Michael Kamburowski, an Australian alien deported by Homeland Security and jailed on visa violations, Nehring denied knowing of Kamburowski's legal issues before hiring him as Chief Operating Officer to oversee large sums of money for the Califoronia GOP. Kamburowski filed suit against the U.S. government and resigned his post with the GOP after his past was revealed.
Nehring also took heat for hiring Christopher Matthews, who lacked significant experience in statewide politics, after the California Republican Party obtained an H1B visa specifically for Matthews to serve as political director.
Under Nehring and Krvaric’s financial stewardship, the California Republican Party has amassed over $3.8 million in debt (link)."The registration gap (with Democrats) is widening, contributions are drying up, key posts have been left open for a year, staff is being laid off and there is a never-ending string of reports which is causing long-term damage to the image of the party," Larry Dodge, a major party donor wrote in a letter to Nehring which was published by Associated Press. Dodge further suggested that party officers were “squandering money without accountability,” AP reported (link).
Nehring did not return phone calls from RAW STORY regarding Kvaric's background checks.
LOCAL REPUBLICANS REACT
“I’m not surprised,” said Republican school board member Priscilla Schreiber upon learning that Nehring appointed the alleged founder of a piracy ring to handle the California GOP’s finances. Schreiber, who served with Nehring on the Grossmont Union High-School Board, complained that she "saw no real concern with what was happening with dollars and cents" by him back then.
Schreiber added, "It’s sad for all of us strong Republican candidates who hold to the party platform and care about integrity and honesty."


Conservative blogger James Hartline has previously criticized Nehring for supporting flag-burning and holding "anti-Christian" values (link). After learning of allegations that Krvaric founded a global piracy ring, Hartline told Raw Story, “I have uncovered a lot more stuff over the years that gives validity to this particular report. They’ve tried to drive me out of the Republican Party because for the last three years, I’ve been trying to uncover corruption within the party."
Hartline, a Christian activist and candidate for City Council, has spoken openly about turning his life around after spending time in jail on drug and theft charges following childhood abuse. According to Hartline, Krvaric instructed San Diego’s Republican Central Committee to refuse consideration of endorsing his candidacy because he has a felony conviction. "This is the guy with all these criminal ties telling me I couldn’t be interviewed," he observed.

At his blog Hartline reports that Fairlight.com's photo archives contains "several pictures of Krvaric involved with some very sickening situations" including one featuring the future GOP chairman for San Diego "posing with a porn star."

Text accompanying the photo, which was labeled "biaatch" in the archives, at Krvaric's website, explained, "After the FairLight crew abandoned the London shows, the computer and video game shows in Las Vegas have been attracting more and more visitors. We especially recommend visiting the 'Adult Section' of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Lots (and we mean lots) of pornostars and otherwise beautiful and 'endowed' women strolling around on the showroom floor showing off their warez! A let me tell you... Those are some HOT warez! As you can see Strider of FairLight seems to have been caught a bit by surprise, and is having a hard (?) time keeping his mouth closed. Of course, the girl also recognized who Strider was, and immediately started grabbing for his crotch."

"These are the people saying 'We’re the caretakers of morality', then there he is at a party with naked girls," Hartline complained to RAW STORY.
Hartline questioned how a recent immigrant with little political experience, rose so quickly through the ranks of the GOP. "Were deals made with law enforcement?" he asked. "There is no way you would get that kind of securities license nor get a U.S. citizenship with that kind of background, and on top of that, move up to the high level in the Republican Party." Hartline predicts the Krvaric story will be "the biggest scandal in the history of San Diego politics," adding on his blog that consequences will be "devastating for Republican candidates and their supporters."

Jess Durfee, Chairman of the San Diego Democratic Party, had this to say upon learning of the revelations about his counterpart in the GOP: "This is a person who is representing the Party in contact with donors, contributors, supporters and it needs to be person who reflects well on the values of the party. If these allegations prove to be true, it would seem the local Republican Party is carrying on the tradition of corruption that we’ve seen with Grover Norquist, Abramoff, Cunningham and the like."

Krvaric’s Employment History includes Scandal-plagued Firms
Currently a licensed securities broker in 10 states, Tony Krvaric has also served as a financial consultant at Wachovia (formerly A.G. Edwards & Associates) in San Diego. According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Krvaric is now employed by Commonwealth Financial Network and has also started his own company, Krvaric Financial (link). The company website, www.krvariccapital.com, however, is blank except for a message stating the site is being redesigned.
Interestingly, Commonwealth is referenced in a recent Investment News article describing how financial companies are checking backgrounds more closely on professionals that they hire in the wake of various scandals. "According to James Adelman, general counsel and head of the privacy office and anti-money-laundering initiative at Commonwealth Financial Network in Waltham, Mass., the company undertook a risk analysis several years ago after being stung by an adviser who misappropriated funds, and now has a permanent risk committee that meets quarterly."
Krvaric’s prior employer, Wachovia, has been implicated in several major financial scandals. Last week, U.S. officials announced an investigation into "the role of Wachovia Corp. in an alleged money laundering scheme involving Mexican and Colombian drug money."
Wachovia is also linked to a growing scandal involving the Republican National Campaign Committee (RNCC) in what may be "the biggest campaign swindle ever reported," according to the Washington Post. The RNCC notified the FBI after finding bookkeeping discrepancies of over a million dollars and evidence that the NRCC’s former treasurer, Christopher Ward, faked audit reports and made hefty unauthorized wire transfers that appear to have ended up in his own bank accounts. Ward, also treasurer for many high-profile Republican candidates and elected officials, wired funds to accounts at various Wachovia branches.
Another past employer of Krvaric’s, A.G. Edwards (acquired last year by Wachovia), has been accused of taking kickbacks from mutual fund companies and other financial improprieties. A.G. Edwards was also hit with a $1.2 million dollar judgment after a Florida stockbroker, Brian Christensen, pled guilty to bilking elderly clients.

A PIRATE'S FUTURE?
Even before revelations of piracy, Krvaric has drawn criticism from Christian conservatives for his stances on other issues, including flag burning and homosexuality.
But his secret past might surprise Republican voters who place high priority on moral values.
"The party’s values haven’t changed," Tony Krvaric observed during an interview with KPBS TV in April 2007. "Greater personal responsibility, smaller government, and a free enterprise system, those are core party values…At the end of the day, those are what motivate Republican voters."
Krvaric has thus far shown little inclination to take personal responsibility for his past activities involving Fairlight, however.
Whether California Republicans will donate money to a party with Kvaric overseeing finances--and whether the San Diego GOP will keep an unrepentant pirate at its helm--remain to be seen.

WE TOLD YOU SO: San Diego GOP chairman co-founded international piracy ring

The Warning Signs sent out by the James Hartline Report are now turning into a tidal wave of breaking news stories around America regarding the GOP Scandal involving San Diego County Republican Party Chairman Tony Krvaric. Of course, Krvaric is not the only story on this matter that will be breaking in the days ahead. The James Hartline Report has been vigorously attempting over the past three years to get the San Diego Republican Party to clean out the moral rot and corruption inside of its party's leadership. The response from the party bosses has been to fight and resist every effort to take inventory of themselves and to clean up the problems. Sadly, instead of doing the right thing, they are now beginning to reap the whirlwind of troubles which are going to cause great damage to many GOP candidates.

Here is one the stories that is breaking from the news service The Raw Story:

San Diego GOP chairman co-founded international piracy ring
Miriam RafteryPublished: Tuesday April 29, 2008
Any job applicant knows that background checks are routine – especially for jobs involving authority or oversight of money. So why didn’t the San Diego Republican Party do a simple Google search before naming Tony Krvaric as its chairman?
Online research reveals that Krvaric is the co-founder of Fairlight, a band of software crackers which later evolved into an international video and software piracy group that law enforcement authorities say is among the world’s largest such crime rings. After co-founding Fairlight in Sweden, Krvaric established U.S. operations for the organization, including an arm headquartered in Southern California—a major center for the computer and video game industry.
Krvaric has also been appointed by California Republican Party Chairman Ron Nehring to head up the state party’s budget committee. RAW STORY's investigation reveals the California GOP has put an alleged pirate in charge of its treasure trove.
An e-mail sent anonymously this week to a conservative listserv operator in San Diego County revealed an attached document titled “The Secret Life of Tony Krvaric.” The attachment alleged that Krvaric, using the alias “Strider,” founded Fairlight “to illegally crack and distribute copyrighted software.” Fairlight evolved from “an adolescent obsession into a full fledged multinational criminal enterprise,” the e-mail claimed.
These allegations come as no surprise to RAW STORY, which has been researching Krvaric’s ties to Fairlight for some time.

Krvaric, alias Strider
Currently a financial consultant and licensed securities broker, Tony Krvaric was born in Sweden in 1971 to a family of Croatian immigrants. He arrived in the United States in 1992 on an H1B visa, wanting to leave Swedish social democracy. Krvaric had been known even in his teens as a conservative; his motto was "Kill A Commie For Your Mommie." In his official Republican party biography, Krvaric claims that he was inspired by the legacy of Ronald Reagan and criticized the European system for not providing an economic climate that would “encourage free enterprise and competition.”
Krvaric obtained American citizenship in 2004 and joined the Republican Party, which welcomed him as a refutation of "those claiming the GOP is non-accepting and non-inclusive of immigrants." He made a meteoric rise through Republican party ranks, taking the helm of San Diego’s GOP just three years later. Krvaric "credits the man he succeeds, Ron Nehring with teaching him much about the functions of the Republican Party.”
However, behind this old-fashioned success story lies another and more shadowy version of Krvaric's life, his time spent as a video game pirate sporting the alias "Strider." In 1987, Strider and two buddies, using the names "Black Shadow" and "Gollum" founded Fairlight, devoted to "cracking" the copy protection on video games for the Commodore 64 and other early systems and redistributing them to acquaintances through electronic bulletin boards.
The "warez d00dz" of that time competed at being the first to get their hands on newly released games. Strider, who worked in a game store and would "borrow" new games to take home and crack, was one of the very best. According to an interview that a website claims was published in Scandinavian News in the 1980s, he quickly became "one of the most famous persons in cracking-scene ever seen: STRIDER of FAIRLIGHT."
A list of Commodore 64 games cracked by Strider is posted at a database of C-64 computer information -- complete with his photo, recent biographical details, and first name: Tony, described as a “coder, cracker, importer and organizer” for Fairlight. The listing confirms that Strider has since become a financial consultant and Republican in San Diego, married with four children. His impressive list of “accomplishments” includes cracking games ranging from PacMan to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. The site also lists Strider’s motto: "Kill a commie for your mommie."
This pirate site lists Strider’s accomplishments chronologically including all the games he cracked in his formative years. It identifies Strider as “Toni K. (No. 1)” residing at Hallstorpsv. 38a - 212 32 Malmoe – Sweden. It also lists numbers of people he apparently recruited into the cracking business.
Although game cracking was already seen by the Swedish police as illicit in the ‘80s, trading cracked software was not made explicitly illegal in Sweden until 1993. By then Kravic was in the United States, finding new entrepreneurial opportunities for Fairlight in connection with the United Software Association. According to a website that celebrates the scene, "Strider from the Amiga Fairlight joined up with the USA guys early on and USA basically became the Fairlight PC division with it's own identity and management staff."
Kravirc formed Fairlight PC to specialize in games for the new PC's, but by the end of 1992, a set of high-profile arrests for credit card fraud among his American associates apparently led Krvaric to exit the PC game business as well and into a new operation called FairLight Trading..
According to an archived Fairlight webpage, FairLight Trading was originally incorporated in Sweden in 1990. "For two years prior it operated as a sole proprietorship. As business grew, the need for incorporating was obvious. The decision to do so was made in the summer of 1990 when funding was obtained from additional investors. Business was mainly concentrated to computer parts such as microprocessors, simm modules and hard drives. A completely different facet also surfaced though; nonperishable foodstuffs. . . In January of 1993, FairLight Trading, Inc. was incorporated under the laws of the State of California as a wholly owned subsidiary. Soon thereafter all operations were run from our offices in San Diego."
However, even this new enterprise was operating in a legal grey area. According to a 1996 version of Krvaric's webpage, "We are a trading company engaged in wholesale of various goods. Among our current offerings are Super WildCard DX 32MBiT Super Nintento(tm) back-up units."
The Super Wildcard DX was a copier for Nintendo games, put out by a Hong Kong company as a backup system, but also used for illegal copying. That kind of circumvention device was made illegal by the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, which was already in the works by 1996, though not passed by Congress until October 1998. But by the end of 1997, Krvaric was apparently out of that business as well, and soon after obtained a Securities Broker license.
After Krvaric's apparent departure in 1992, FairLight PC was reconstituted by others and continued to carry on software piracy. In 2004, several members of the group were arrested in an international operation that involved police from eleven countries and led to 120 arrests.
Fairlight co-founder Bacchus (Pontus Berg) implicated Krvaric as still in charge of in charge of Fairlight PC and C64 activities in an interview published in 2004—shortly before international stings by law enforcement. “So I'm on my 15th year as a fairlighter and I'm seriously considering having the Amiga logo drawn by Angeldawn tattooed on my arm. Fairlight is now controlled by Strider, JBM and myself. Currently active sections are the C64 demo section and the PC demo section. The PC ISO section was put to sleep recently, but who know what the future might hold."
Krvaric responds privately
Tony Krvaric has never fully disavowed his piratical past.
Ever a buccaneer at heart, he even lists an e-mail address with his pirate nickname (strider@cts.com) at his business listing under Tony Krvaric with the San Diego County Businesses directory. Krvaric http://www.smartvoter.org/2006/06/06/ca/sd/vote/krvaric_t/ in his League of Women Voters information materials when he ran for the San Diego Republican Party central committee in 2006. Running for reelection in 2008, Krvaric currently lists http://www.sdcounty.ca.gov/voters/Eng/election/0608candlist.pdf.
Krvaric has not responded to multiple requests for comment. But in an email message sent to fellow Republican committee members last week, leaked to RAW STORY, he admitted swapping video files but asserted that the charges were part of a "hit piece."
"Apparently there’s a hit piece floating around on me, “exposing” my wild high school, teenage years where I was in a computer club where we swapped Commodore 64 games (similar to how kids swap mp3 music files these days)," he wrote Monday. "This was in the 80’s, on a computer that’s long since defunct!"
"1990 [sic] I graduated high school, grew up and started my own business, and then in 1992 I came to this country, continuing the same business (selling computer and video game chips and accessories as well as some nonperishable foodstuffs, taking over my father’s business for a while after he died in 1994) until I left that field when the profit margins became too thin to make any money – around 1997 or so," he added. "That’s when I became a financial consultant, which I remain to this day."
"I’m sure glad they didn’t look in to my elementary school years, as there’s some really embarrassing stuff that I did in 4th grade," he continued. "BTW, I also heard a rumor that another fellow committee member (who shall remain unnamed) once made a tape copy of his friend’s favorite vinyl record."
"I don’t know who is spreading this," he concluded, "but just wanted to let you know what’s going on out there. Likely it’s someone who wants us to take our eye off the ball in 2008, be it the democrats, labor or someone else. Either way, we’re not going to let them get away with it. Thanks for your leadership."
After moving to San Diego, Strider was asked in an interview if he had any regrets about his hacking days.
“No,” he replied.
Gaming is Big Business for California, nation
In his statement, Krvaric dismissed his game-swapping past as trivial. But for the fast-growing interactive entertainment industry in California as well as national and international law enforcement authorities, copyright violations and piracy are very big concerns.
In California, the computer and video game industry is a $1.7 billion business, employing 40% of the industry employment nationwide. California has more than 190 video game facilities, employing over 9,000 people directly and 25,000 indirectly, including industry giants such as Sony in San Diego. In 2006, the computer and video game industry added $3.8 billion to the U.S. GDP, the Entertainment Software Association reports (link).
Reducing software piracy could create hundreds of thousands of new jobs, billions in information technology (IT) spending and economic growth, and new tax revenues to support local services worldwide, according to "The Economic Benefits of Lowering PC Software Piracy," a 2008 study commissioned by the Business Software Alliance (BSA) and conducted independently by International Data Corporation (IDC) (pdf link).
In March, U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey met with software and entertainment industry executives in California, warning that huge profits generated from intellectual property crimes including piracy are fostering terrorism: "Criminal syndicates, and in some cases even terrorist groups, view IP crime as a lucrative business and see it as a low-risk way to fund other activities. A primary goal of our IP enforcement mission is to show these criminals that they're wrong."
Video and computer gaming sales "definitely" contribute significantly to the economy of San Diego County, according to Wanda Meloni, president of DFC (David F Cole Intelligence), a market research firm in San Diego that tracks the gaming industry. Sony, Midway, and High Moon Studios (owned by Vivendi, which recently merged with Activision) all have operations here, she noted.
Asked whether piracy is a serious issue for San Diego based gaming manufactures, she replied, "Piracy is a big concern when you are talking about retail products. All of these companies are selling their products internationally."
The lowdown on Fairlight
According to the Center for Digital Government, an international advisory group, after Krvaric’s reported departure from Fairlight PC, Fairlight grew to become one of the “most notorious online piracy release groups in the world,” specializing in “the illegal distribution of computer games, including PC and console games.”
An article at DVD Recordable in 2004 described Fairlight as “the most sophisticated criminal syndicates on the planet, trading in a commodity worth hundreds of millions of pounds…They are part of the highly secretive 'warez scene' - an online community of hi-tech criminals responsible for pirating 90 per cent of the world's music, computer software and DVD movies.”
Globally, piracy is big business. Pirated PC software approached $50 billion in value in 2005, according to a study by the Business Software Alliance.
“These groups are the tip of the iceberg, if you think of software piracy as a pyramid,” said John Wolfe, spokesperson for the Business Software Alliance. “It’s the release groups like Drink or Die, like Fairlight, whose sold purpose in life is to get hold of preferably new releases…and get it out over the Internet…If someone wants to join a group they may charge them money.”
Asked if he would trust his finances to an individual with an alleged background in cracking and pirating products, he replied, “If I knew that someone was guilty of something or involved in federal crimes in the past, I clearly would be uncomfortable with that…If someone has never been convicted of a crime? I’m not sure.”
In 2003, three men pled guilty to felony conspiracy to commit copyright infringement in the U.S. – including Seth Kleinberg of Pasadena, who admitted that he was a senior member of Fairlight and Kalisto. Using the online nickname "Basilisk," Kleinberg supplied those groups with new software titles, assisted in the "cracking" process and served as a courier to distribute pirated products to servers around the globe.
Those busts, made under Operation Higher Education, were part of six U.S. convictions made under a global law enforcement effort known as Operation Fastlink, which has resulted in 50 convictions worldwide and 120 searches in 12 countries including Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, the United States, Great Britain and Northern Ireland. In addition, the sting operations have netted over $50 million in illegally copied software, games, movies and music.
A 2004 article in the Guardian revealed that “last summer several key members of Fairlight said that they were going into retirement because the FBI was closing in on them. In 2004, Operation Fastlink raids seized several computers in San Diego, but no arrests were made.
As law enforcement closed in, a post signed by the “Fairlight Team” at a Commodore 64 gamers site stated that it was now time for Fairlight to close its doors for good. But a subsequent post signed by "Bacchus, Fairlight Council Spokesperson," warned, “Until you see a statement by Strider, JBM or Bacchus declaring our death, don’t believe what you read. And perhaps you shouldn’t anyway, as both Strider and myself have ensured that there is a new generation of Fairlighters ready to take over from their fathers when that day comes. Remember that legends never die!"
Despite Krvaric’s long ties to Fairlight and continued use of tkrvaric@fairlight.com, however, the website www.fairlight.com today has no company information or product descriptions listed, but merely a notice that “This website is coming soon.”

NEWS ALERT: San Diego GOP Scandal Reveals Dark Side Of Party Chairman Tony Krvaric

The James Hartline Report

April 28, 2008

News Alert!
San Diego GOP Scandal Reveals Dark Side
Of San Diego Republican Party Chairman Tony Krvaric

Chairman Tony Krvaric's Hypocrisy Is Demonstrated
After He Refused To Interview Christian City Council Candidate
James Hartline For The County GOP Endorsement

The year was 1972. President Nixon was preparing for a landslide presidential victory and eighteen year-olds were about to vote for the first time ever in a federal election thanks to a 1971 constitutional amendment. Far away from the muggy and chaotic political stew being cooked up in Washington D.C that year, a youth probation officer was making an unsettling stop in front of a very common-looking, three bedroom house on Lewis Street in the small gambling town of Carson City, Nevada.

Not much happened in Carson City, Nevada that could shake the nerves of former marine-turned-probation officer Donald Mullins. Runaway kids who engaged in stealing comic books and candy were the most severe acts of rebellion that Officer Mullins was confronted with in his low paying, but gratifying job, working with the troubled teens in this town of 15,000 gamblers, swindlers, families and lawmakers.

Within minutes of his arrival at the Lewis street house, Officer Mullins was about to come face-to-face with one of the most shocking cases of abuse that he had seen since his days of being a military police officer during the Vietnam War. Having arrived with a notebook in hand to take a report, Mullins inhaled a full gasp of adrenaline as he peered into the home's open front door. Staring up at Mullins from the living room's orange shag carpet was a squatting emaciated and terrified fourteen year-old boy.

Standing over the scrawny teenager was a short, overweight woman in her mid-thirties. "Get him out of here. Get this troublemaker out of my home and don't bring him back," the boy's mother screamed at Officer Mullins.

Separating the mother from her son, Mullins escorted the boy to the back seat of his four door sedan. The son, trembling with tears flowing down his gaunt cheeks, seemed to be quite relieved to be taken away from the angry shouts of his mother. He locked the boy into the back seat of his car and headed back to the tense mother who was standing just inside of the front door.

After taking a report from the mother, Officer Mullins crawled into the driver's seat and started up the engine. Driving the three miles to the Carson City Jail, Mullins pulled to a stop next to the jail's back entrance. Looking into his rear view mirror, the officer had a puzzled look on his exhausted face as he looked at the extremely underweight teenager huddled in his back seat.

"So, your mother says that you are constantly stealing and that you hit her today. What do you have to say for yourself?" questioned Mullins.

"She beats me and doesn't feed me," the boy replied in a voice barely audible to Mullins.

"What do you mean she beats you? I don't see any marks," retorted Mullins.

"Look here," said the boy as he pulled up both of his pants legs.

Mullins had to take a double look to make sure that what he was seeing was not just a strange reflection from the visual effects of the setting Nevada sun. "What is that?" inquired the disturbed probation officer.

"Bruises. Bad, bad bruises," the boy said as he began to turn a low guttural cry into howls of desperation. His legs were covered from ankle to thigh with deep purple welts and bruises.

"How did your legs get like that?"

"She beats me with her hair brush and my dad's belt.....everyday. Everyday. And this time she caught me looking at my dad's dirty magazines. Then she just began to hit me over and over and she wouldn't stop. That is when she called you to take me away."

"We can't send you back there. But the only place in Carson City to put you for now is the adult jail. We don't have a place for kids. You will stay in the jail until we can find you a new home." And with that final comment, Officer Mullins escorted the beaten fourteen year-old boy into the adult jail.

That would be the last time that the warn out youngster would ever live with his mother. From that point forward, on that cold Autumn Nevada night, his life would depart from the dark agony of fourteen years of beatings, tortures and sexual abuse. Now this homeless teenager would enter into an even harder and more treacherous way of life. A way of life that few kids in America ever make it out of.

After thirty days of being confined behind the steel and concrete walls of the Carson City Jail, this wayward juvenile was placed in the Northern Nevada Children's Home. He would remain in the children's home for two years. Bound in a mentally hopeless place, he was left with a permanent scar of low self-esteem that would cause him to have nightmares at night and an inability to relate to his peers at the children's home during the day.

Eventually the truth would come out and the authorities would find out that the boy wasn't the troublemaker his mother had made him out to be. It was the kid's mother who was the real troublemaker in that home. For fourteen years, the son had been beaten, tortured, sexually abused and exposed to pornography.

A year prior to his arrest by Officer Mullins, the boy had been beaten so severely that he just took off in the middle of the night, running away without any shoes on his feet. With the cloudy cover of the frigid Nevada night over his exposed head, the boy walked fifteen miles from Carson City to the tiny town of Gardnerville, Nevada. Hiding out in an old Methodist church, the then-thirteen year-old boy stole some of the church's kitchen towels to cover up the multitude of deep cuts on the bottom of his feet, the result of walking on the sharp rocks, weeds and broken glass that littered the poorly-defined path inside of the pasture land that connected the two small gambling towns.

Inside of the church kitchen, he stole a small amount of fruit and left-over stew that was located in the refrigerator. Stealing food from a refrigerator was a common practice for the runaway boy. Oftentimes sent to bed without dinner as one of his mother's many cruel ways of showing the boy who was master in her home, the young teenager was getting incredibly thin for someone his age. It was at this point in his life that he began to sneak into the kitchen in the middle of the night to steal food. It was on this terrifying night, when his mother found him eating in her kitchen after bedtime, that he was beaten and chased out of the house. Several hours later, he was once again stealing food from a refrigerator, this time from the kitchen inside of Gardnerville's only Methodist church.

Over the next six years, this boy would turn into a young man who had no idea how to survive in the world. His stealing for food would eventually turn into stealing to support his drug habit. Unable to find any answers to why he was born into such a cruel life, he turned to drugs to cope with the years of beatings and sexual abuse. Without any job skills, family or the wherewithal to find peace in this life, he ended up becoming a petty thief to support his drug habit.

At every turn, he would face a new adversity. And with each new adversity, he grew stronger, always learning a new principle for overcoming life's tribulations. Many years after he had overcome all of the terrible damage that had been inflicted upon his body and his mind as a child, this young man would become one of America's fiercest defenders of abused children. The world would come to know that young man as James Hartline, San Diego's most vocal warrior in the American Culture War.

Many major media sources in America have featured the efforts of James Hartline's crusade to protect kids and his efforts to clean out the corruption in San Diego, California. In 2005, it was Hartline who discovered and exposed a pedophile network that was operating inside of San Diego's Gay Pride organization. As a result of his investigation, it was also discovered that a registered pedophile was employed as a clown in the San Diego Gay Pride's Children's Garden.

Within a four year period of time, Hartline's war against San Diego's powerful pornography industry led to the shutting down of nine illegal adult businesses. In 2006, Hartline's life story was featured on a critically-acclaimed international broadcast of CBN's the 700 Club.

In 2003, Hartline began his incredibly successful The James Hartline Report. Without having ever sent out an email prior to 2003, Hartline taught himself how to use the internet and to publish his own email newsletters. With the same determination that he has used to face every great difficulty in his life, Hartline started his newsletter by finding twenty people in 2003 who wanted to receive his newsletter. That email list has now grown from twenty people to nearly 20,000 readers, making The James Hartline Report one of the biggest independent email newsletters in California.

It has been nearly twenty years since James Hartline stole to support his former drug habit. In his very public stand to clean up the city of San Diego to make it a safer place for his city's youth, critics of Hartline call him a convicted felon who doesn't deserve any respect. These critics are not willing to forgive Hartline of his former drug problems or the times he stole in the 1980's to support that drug problem. They have no idea what James Hartline went through to become the man that he is today. Ironically, Hartline's biggest critics are the leaders of San Diego County's Republican Party, a political organization whose current chairman, Tony Krvaric, is a man who was involved in one of the most serious criminal enterprises that the computer technology industry faced during the 1980's.

A highly confidential source has provided the James Hartline Report with a fourteen page document that details a criminal enterprise involving GOP Chairman Tony Krvaric while he lived in his home country of Sweden prior to moving to the United States.

According to the document, Krvaric’s obsession for computers led him to join a cracker group called the West Coast Crackers in late 1986. A "cracker" is a computer programmer who is able to strip a program down to its component parts and remove lines of computer codes that prevent software from being copied. This is a major crime in the United States. West Coast Crackers was formed to crack and distribute copyrighted software which is illegal.

This group dissolved in April of 1987. Krvaric then decided to found his own group. He named this group Fairlight after the revolutionary Fairlight audio synthesizer. This group was founded to illegally crack and distribute copyrighted software. Evidence reveals that Tony Krvaric is still using "Fairlight" as his email address.

Evidence from San Diego GOP Chairman Tony Krvaric's sordid past is not limited to his involvement in illegally cracking computer codes. Indeed, Krvaric's utter hypocrisy in denying James Hartline the right to be interviewed by the San Diego County Republican Party for an endorsement as a candidate in the 2008 San Diego City Council race is made all the more worse by the repugnant photographs on the website for Fairlight, Krvaric's cracker organization. For example in the Fairlight website's photo archives there are several pictures of Krvaric involved with some very sickening situations. One of the pictures features Krvaric posing with a porn star during a porn convention.

If one can imagine the great adversity that Hartline has had to overcome to get to this place in life than one surely start to believe in miracles. For the past five years Hartline has regularly taken a team of private citizens before the city council to speak out on issues of moral consequences in San Diego. From confronting child prostitution in the North Park area of San Diego to the illegal crimes occurring in a gay sex club in that same neighborhood, Hartline and his team have done more to protect San Diego's youth and their families than any highly-funded organization in recent memory.

That is what makes the events surrounding Hartline and the San Diego County Republican Party's endorsement meeting all the more insidious, all the more disturbing, all the more hypocritical. On November 6, 2007, Hartline received a questionnaire from the San Diego County Republican Party to fill out in preparation for the party's candidate endorsement meeting.

Given less than 48 hours to fill out the excessively long questionnaire and return it to the county GOP headquarters, Hartline still returned it on time. Unbeknownst to Hartline, Chairman Krvaric had scheduled the endorsement meeting for interviewing the candidates the following Monday evening, but they never told Hartline.

When Hartline and ten of his supporters showed up, he knew something very strange was going on. No one at the meeting would speak with Hartline or his campaign supporters. Hartline was ignored the entire evening and never called in for an endorsement interview. Several days later, Hartline's attorney, Robert Sutton, called him to say that Tony Krvaric and the other leaders held an emergency meeting when they saw Hartline at the meeting and they proceeded to change the party's rules on endorsements. The new rule: any candidate with a felony conviction would not be interviewed for an endorsement by the party's executive committee.

It is GOP Chairman Tony Kravric's involvement with the criminal computer network in Sweden that makes the refusal to interview Hartline one of the most despicable acts of hypocrisy in San Diego's long and sordid political history.

While Tony Kravric would not allow James Hartline to be interviewed along with the other candidates for public office because Hartline had a theft related felony conviction nearly 20 years ago, Krvaric has, perhaps, the most sinister and immoral past of anyone leading a Republican Party organization in America. What Republican voters are about to learn regarding the man who denied justice to James Hartline in his effort to become a San Diego City Councilman is one of the great tales of political corruption in American history.

During San Diego Republican Party Chairman Tony Krvaric's illegal "cracking" days he was known by the aliases "Strider" and "No. 1". During a 1988 interview with Scandinavian News, Krvaric detailed his criminal actions as a cracker:

(Scandinavian News) G: How's Fairlight doing lately?(Krvaric) Strider: "On 64 we're doing very well, but on Amiga not so good. We have released some good demos but we are getting better all the time. We're still very big on 64, on Amiga not the biggest but..."
G: Who're active at FLT?Strider: "Only 6 members are at the group: Gollum (only 64), Excalibur (Amiga), I (Strider-64+Amiga), The Hobbit (Amiga), The Black Shadow(Amiga) and The Sarge (64)."
G: How many cracks you've made?Strider: "Well, about 300-400 cracks, this is hard... On Amiga maybe 150..... All made with Gollum."
G: Tell me about your beginning in the computer-career.Strider: "I got first a 64 in christmas 1983 (lots of thinking to get this result - editor's note). The first 2 years I was superlame, then joined the group WASP, after that The Thieves, then West Coast Crackers and then founded Fairlight, at March 1987.. Founders were Gollum, I and Black Shadow. Hobbit joined six months later and Excalibur this summer (also Sarge joined this summer/autumm, Strider did forget to mention it)."
G: What made FLT so big?Strider: "Some groups are very fast to swap, others just crack games. We got originals very fast and we also cracked them fast. That made us big. At past I swapped 24hrs/day, school went down etc."
G: What's the most important thing on a group? Is it cracks, musicians,coders or what?Strider: "(a lot of speaking too much too fast to write down but the main theme is:) Cracker is the best thing."
G: Have you had troubles with lamers?Strider: "Before I changed my tel.num. it rang all the time, lamers asking to copy them games and sending me empty disks to fill."

For James Hartline, he believes that ultimately truth and justice will prevail as he continues to battle the forces of corruption in San Diego, California. Even though Tony Krvaric blocked him from being interviewed with the other candidates during the Republican Party's endorsement interviews, Hartline thinks that the voters will ultimately decide that he has paid for his past and worked hard enough to earn the right to represent his district on the city council. For San Diego GOP Chairman Tony Krvaric, the hypocrisy and immorality of a man leading an entire county's political party is a catastrophe for all of the candidates that Krvaric has been promoting to the voters of San Diego.

Perhaps stealing computer codes and hanging out with porn stars is the moral thing to do in Sweden, but Tony Krvaric and the Republican Party professionals better realize that those types of things are not considered to be family values in San Diego, California.

As James Hartline continues to battle everyday to make things safer for the children of his city, he also warns the GOP elites who joined Tony Krvaric in denying him the right to be endorsed like every other candidate for the city council, that there are other very serious GOP scandals ready to unfold in the weeks leading up to the June 3, 2008 primary.

"My goal over the past five years is to get the San Diego Republican Party to clean house and get rid of the corruption that is dictating the party's decisions and direction," says Hartline. "I now know I am definitely going to get my wishes fulfilled."

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! BIGGEST GOP SCANDAL IN THE HISTORY OF SAN DIEGO'S REPUBLICAN PARTY IS ABOUT TO BECOME A MAJOR NEWS HEADLINE EVENT!

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!

Get ready for the biggest scandal in the history of San Diego politics to unfold in the next few days. The tale of corruption and a criminal enterprise that was a daily component of a man who is now one of the top leaders of San Diego's Republican Party is about to become a catastrophic headline news event in San Diego County.
And the consequences for a number of Republican candidates for public office in San Diego County will be devastating for their supporters.

For the past three years I have been confronting the corruption within the Republican Party's leadership in the hopes that the GOP would clean out the rot inside of their ranks. The response from these corrupt party leaders has been to attack me, mock me and fight against me every step of the way.

Instead of heeding my warnings and efforts, the local GOP is about to enter into a disasterous episode right before the June 3rd elections.

Tony Krvaric, Carl DeMaio, Ron Nehring, Jim Kelly, Gary Cass, Jeff Perwin, Anthony Porrello, Duane Dichiara: these are but a few of the men who will be confronted in the days ahead.
San Diego get ready!

Will You Join in Hartline's Campaign March Against Poverty? May 8, 2008

The James Hartline Campaign March Against Poverty
Thursday - May 8, 2008
12noon - 1pm
Where: City Heights Retail Village
Corner of Fairmont Ave. & University Ave.
San Diego, CA. 92105

The Revolution Has Begun! The 20 Year Long Era
Of Radical, Anti-Family Politics Is Finally Coming
To An End in The District 3 Area of San Diego, California.

For Eight Years, Thousands of Christians throughout
America have been Praying For James Hartline as he has
fought battle after battle after battle in the midst of a great
war to reclaim San Diego.

This is our time! This is what we have all been waiting for!
This day we will march for the people who have been
crying out for justice and for an end to the dark vision
of radicalized lesbian District 3 Councilwoman Toni Atkins.

In District 3, for the past 8 years, thousands of families in the City
Heights area of District 3 have been so poor that moms and dads
have had to send their kids to bed without food. Many of their homes
are covered with mold, in turn causing an epidemic of asthma among
the area's kids. There are no street lights on at night, so families with
kids are cooped up inside of cramped homes as if they are in prisons.

While Moms and Dads in City Heights have struggled to make ends
meet, Councilwoman Toni Atkins has helped spend public funds
on condoms, needles for drug addicts and programs to encourage
young teenage boys to have sex change operations.

Isn't it time to tell Councilwoman Toni Atkins and
The San Diego City Council to trade in their
condoms and hypodermic needles for bread and milk?


At the same time that this unneccesary and unjust
plague of poverty has existed in District 3, Councilwoman
Toni Atkins has taken millions of dollars in public funds
and poured it into the wealthy gay and lesbian center
in Hillcrest.

On June 28, 2008 the San Diego Gay and Lesbian Center will feature
a beer and tequila party on the property that taxpayers
have spent millions of dollars on under the guise of stopping
the spread of AIDS. Incredibly, the taxpayers continue to give
the San Diego Gay and Lesbian Center nearly $2 million per year
to fund gay "counseling" programs and to stop the spread of AIDS.
While poor District 3 families cannot pay for gas or feed their kids,
the Gay and Lesbian Center, with Councilwoman Toni Atkins' help,
are having a beer and tequila party on property paid for
with your tax dollars!

While kids have gone hungry in her district,
Councilwoman Atkins has seen to it that the wealthy
gays and lesbians in Hillcrest have plenty of condoms,
drag queen shows and lesbian dance classes at the
multi-million dollar gay and lesbian center which is funded
with your tax dollars.

On Thursday - May 8, 2008, James Hartline is asking
San Diego to walk with him in his campaign march
against injustice and poverty.

Let us send a message to Toni Atkins and her radical
anti-family agenda that there is a new day in San Diego.

Justice is coming for the families of San Diego.
Never again will we remain silent as the radical agenda
of Toni Atkins and her anti-family greedy friends
take from our kids and families in District 3.

Will You March With James?
Will You give up one hour to help James Hartline
save the families of District 3?

We need 200 people to march in City Heights
between 12noon and 1pm
on Thursday - May 8, 2008.

Get Ready To Pray! Get Ready To March!
And Get Ready To Vote on June 3, 2008 for
James Hartline For San Diego City Council - District 3
Please let James know you will help with the march
by emailing him or calling him:

NEWS ALERT: San Diego City Council Votes 7-0 To Honor Gay Porn Industry

The James Hartline Report
- On The Frontlines Of The Culture War-
April 17, 2008

San Diego City Council Honors Gay Porn Promoter
By Declaring "Gay and Lesbian Times Day" In
The City of San Diego.

Christian City Councilmembers Joined the Majority
In Voting to Honor One of the Biggest Promoters
of Gay Pornography in the City of San Diego.

Catholic San Diego City Attorney Mike Aguirre and Lesbian City Councilwoman
Toni Atkins led the charge in repeated attacks against Christian activist
James Hartline and other Christians who pleaded with the city council to reject
the honoring of the pornographic Gay and Lesbian Times.


(JHReport) San Diego father and businessman Mike Farmer accurately summarized what many were thinking during an April 15, 2008 San Diego City Council meeting when the city council voted to issue a proclamation in honor of a porn-promoting publication called the Gay and Lesbian Times. During his speech in opposition to the proclamation, Farmer told the council, "I feel like I'm in some alternative universe."

Farmer was not alone in his shock and dismay that the San Diego City Council was preparing to honor one of San Diego's biggest promoters of the gay pornography industry. For years, the Gay and Lesbian Times has used its publication to promote and sale xxx gay pornography. The classifieds section of the Gay and Lesbian Times is replete with advertisements for men who are seeking other men to engage in anal intercourse, nude massages, male prostitution and the hiring of men as young as 18 years of age to make gay porn movies.

James Hartline, a Christian activist and a current candidate for the San Diego City Council, presented a six minute speech before the city council that detailed the deplorable contents of the Gay and Lesbian Times. In shockingly graphic details, Hartline outlined the extremely immoral and anti-catholic agenda of Gay and Lesbian Times publisher Michael Portantino.

Citing evidence from Portantino's other publication, Rocket Magazine, James Hartline told the city council that Michael Portantino has a history of using his publications for mixing graphic sexual content with appalling attacks against the Catholic community. For example, in a February 16, 2006 edition of Rocket Magazine's column "Toyz-4-Boyz," one of the most disgusting articles ever written against Catholics was published by Michael Portantino's company Uptown Publications. Uptown Publications is the parent company of the Gay and Lesbian Times. The "Toyz-4-Boyz" article stated:

"Here at Rocket Magazine, we love all things politically incorrect. We are
constantly on the lookout for offensive material to shock and hopefully piss off at
least a few of our readers. This week we stumbled upon the web site Divine-
Interventions.com." Divine Interventions specializes in making dildos out of
religious icons.

During his council speech, Hartline described for the city council the items from Divine Interventions being promoted by Michael Portantino in his publication Rocket Magazine. Those items included the "Baby Jesus Butt Plug" and "Jackhammer Jesus" which is a rubber sex toy featuring Jesus hanging on the cross. A third item mentioned by Hartline was a dildo in the shape of the Virgin Mary called "The Diving Nun."

During the city council meeting, fourteen Christian and Catholic citizens stood with Hartline at the podium as he described how insulting it was for them to have their names used to honor the filthy business practices of Gay and Lesbian Times publisher Michael Portantino. In a shocking disregard for the emotional pain and suffering that the city council was causing Christians and Catholics by honoring Portantino, the city council voted unanimously to declare Gay and Lesbian Times Day in the City of San Diego.

Diane Chapman, a well-respected San Diego County business owner and faithful member of her local Catholic parish, confronted lesbian City Councilwoman Toni Atkins for sponsoring the Gay and Lesbian Times Day proclamation. In her speech to the council, Chapman told the council, "I looked over the Gay and Lesbian Times and I cannot believe it's content. This is not National Geographic. Seriously consider if you want your name associated with it."

After the vote, Chapman told the James Hartline Report this, "As a Catholic, I could not believe that they would honor a soft porn magazine and therefore an editor who allows ads for sex toys that mock the Catholic Church and holy Christian symbols."

Adding to the insulting and anti-religious nature of the proclamation itself, were the comments of several members of the city council who defended Michael Portantino and his publications.

Michael Aguirre, the controversial San Diego City Attorney, had the audacity to tell the crowded city council chambers that he is a faithful member of the Catholic Church at the same time that he supports the immoral and extremely anti-catholic content of Portantino's publications.

Telling those in attendance during the meeting that he has actually known Michael Portantino for many years, City Attorney Aguirre shocked the Christians at the meeting by saying this of Portantino, "He is a person that believes in fundamental 'family values' and is actually quite conservative."

Aguirre, who recently helped push through a San Diego City Council-approved legal brief in support of gay marriage, added these insulting comments during his support of Michael Portantino and the Gay and Lesbian Times Day proclamation: "There is alot of division and ill will that gets expressed towards the gay and lesbian community by those that have either been a part of it or for their own religious reasons, out of good faith, are confused and can't accept themselves."

In another shocking display of hypocrisy, Councilman Tony Young voted to honor the porn-promoting enterprises of Michael Portantino. Young, who claims to be a born-again Christian, once again revealed the shallow and fraudulent commitment he has to his Christian values. Late last year, Young was seen standing with a number of black pastors at a public protest against gay marriage. These pastors will be critical to Young once he seeks re-election in 2010. However, in 2008, Councilman Young is more concerned with celebrating the porn industry than he is his feigned public profession of being a born-again Christian.

Young told the city council chambers, "Congratulations on your day (Mr. Portantino). I'm going to support this proclamation because I'm here.... to represent 'everybody." Apparently, 'everybody' includes the gay pornography industry as well as the company that sales sex toys in the shape of religious icons.

Another San Diego city councilmember who claims to be a Christian, Brian Maienschein, also voted to honor the porn-promoting Gay and Lesbian Times. Like Mike Aguirre and Council President Scott Peters, Brian Maienschein is running for the city attorney's seat in the upcoming June 3, 2008 election. Councilman Maienschein continues to shock Christian voters in San Diego with the depth of his continuous betrayal of members of the Christian Community. Maienschein is currently seeking speaking engagements with groups composed of conservatives and Christians to help his campaign.

James Hartline has this to say about Maienschein's constant religious hypocrisy; "Of all the people that I have had to deal with in the six years that I have been coming to the city council meetings to stand up for family values, Brian Maienschein has proven to be the single biggest deceiver and hypocrite I have faced."

Three years ago, Brian Maienschein was invited to speak at Hartline's church, Mission Valley Christian Fellowship, because he had stood up for saving the Mt. Solead Cross during the 2004 elections. While at the church, Maienschein told the congregation of 1,500 that he was proud to be a Christian in today's troubled culture. Since that time, Maienschein has repeatedly voted to honor the San Diego Gay Pride organization, voted to honor the abortion industry with a proclamation that declared Reproductive Choice Day in the City of San Diego, and of course, honoring the gay pornography industry via this week's Gay and Lesbian Times Day proclamation.

It is clear that the Christians on the San Diego City Council are more concerned with the opinion of the publisher of the Gay and Lesbian Times, which claims a circulation of over 15,000 readers, than they are with the Christian voters or even, the God they claim to serve in their faith.

After the council voted to declare Gay and Lesbian Times Day in the City of San Diego, Mike Farmer told the James Hartline Report that he is beginning to see a pattern develop at the council in recent months. "It doesn't seem to matter what Christians or anyone opposing the agenda of lesbian Councilwoman Toni Atkins thinks or has to say. Whether it's a proclamation for the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, or the porn-filled Gay and Lesbian Times, this City Council dutifully votes - almost always unanimously - in favor of Ms. Atkins' radical agenda," said Farmer.

"I personally pleaded with the other council members not to let Ms. Atkins and her constituents bully them. They were all looking me right in the eyes as if they were actually paying attention to what I said. And maybe they were, but it didn't make a bit of difference. When it came time to vote, this council still voted to honor the publisher of G&L Times. It was "yes" right down the board. If this had been my first time to a City Council meeting, I would have been shocked. I'm now growing numb to their total disregard for what's right and decent. It's a sad time in the history of "America's Finest City" when the people voted into office honor those who seek to destroy the moral fabric of our society," declared Farmer.

PRESS RELEASE: Rally to End Chinese Persecution at San Diego City Council - April 15, 2008

Press Release - April 14, 2008 - time: 12pm.pst
From the James Hartline Report - and - Hartline For City Council Campaign
Contact: James Hartline, telephone: 619-793-9661
website: www.hartline08.com

Prayer Rally and City Council Stand against religious persecution in China.
And Opposition to San Diego City Council honoring the gay pornography industry
via a declaration of "Gay and Lesbian Times Day" in the City of San Diego.
Time: Begins at 8:30am at the San Diego City Council Concourse - Ground Floor
Where: 202 "C" Street, San Diego, CA. 92101 - Ground Floor at 8:30am and
12th Floor at 10am.

On Tuesday - April 15, 2008, several leaders of San Diego's Christian Community, as well as candidates for public office and members of various San Diego County churches will be assemblying on the San Diego City Concourse to hold a public rally. The primary focus of the rally will be praying for the suffering citizens of China who are being brutally oppressed by the Communist regime in Beijing. With San Diego County being the home to the U.S. Olympic Training Center, it is incredibly important that the governmental leadership of San Diego speak out against the horrific crimes being committed in China, particularly the oppression and repression of Chinese citizens based upon their religious practices. Currently, the Chinese government imprisons Christian pastors for preaching, arrests citizens for distributing bibles, and bulldozes home churches. Additionally, forced abortions are a governmental regularity in China, as well as the sales of human organs harvested from executed political prisoners.

While the Americans who train at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista will be competing for gold medals in Beijing, Chinese citizens are being beaten, imprisoned and tortured for merely practicing their respective religions. The April 15, 2008 rally at the San Diego City Council will be a public plea by concerned San Diegans on the behalf of the suffering people of China.

The rally will be followed up with a request by San Diego City Council candidate James Hartline during the council's non-agenda public comment time. James will ask the city council to issue a letter to the Chinese government for the purpose of ending the religious persecution in China.

The rally participants will also attend the April 15th city council meeting to oppose Councilwoman Toni Atkins' request that "Gay and Lesbian Times Day" be declared in the City of San Diego. The Gay and Lesbian Times is one of the most notorious promoters of gay pornography in San Diego. San Diego City Council candidate James Hartline and other concerned San Diegans believe that the city council should not be endorsing or honoring publications which profit from the sale of pornography.

San Diego City Council candidate James Hartline is also pleased to announce his upcoming media intinerary. Mr. Hartline has been booked for the following radio program interviews:
-- Monday - April 14, 2008 (at 9:00pm.pst) The Rick Amato Show on KCBQ 1170 AM.

BREAKING NEWS: San Diego City Council To Honor Gay Porn Industry

The James Hartline Report
Breaking News!
April 11, 2008

San Diego City Council To Declare A Day of Honor For
The Gay and Lesbian Times Porn Newspaper

Gay and Lesbian Times is one of San Diego's biggest
promoters and advertisers of the gay porn industry.

The James Hartline Report invites you to go to
the San Diego City Council on April 15, 2008
to stop this madness!

Take Action:

If the San Diego City Council hasn't already crossed the point of insanity, Tuesday, April 15, 2008 will surely be the day when they do cross their insane point of no return. From honoring the abortion industry in San Diego by declaring Reproductive Choice Day in San Diego to declaring ACLU Day in the City of San Diego, the San Diego City Council has repeatedly beaten down San Diego voters with their constant parade of insane decisions.

Thousands of dollars is wasted each year on these ridiculous proclamations. While the city council cannot get itself out of debt, it can find the time and money to honor scores of radical leftist organizations and businesses. This time, the council is preparing to honor one of San Diego's most notorious porn-promoting newspapers.

Lesbian San Diego City Councilwoman Toni Atkins has sponsored a bill to declare Gay and Lesbian Times Day in The City of San Diego. The vote to honor this porn-promoting publication will occur on Tuesday, April 15, 2008 during the morning council session.

The Gay and Lesbian Times is one of the biggest promoters of gay pornography in the city of San Diego. The classified section of the Gay and Lesbian Times includes advertisements for male prostitution, employment in the gay porn industry and the sales of explicit and disgusting gay pornography. The online website for the Gay and Lesbian Times classifieds reveals advertisements like the following ones:

MALE MODELS WANTED
Casting Adult Male Videos. Are you 18-30, clean cut looks, fit, hot? CASH Paid! SDBOY.com or call 619-461-0942
and
ITALIAN STALION
You will just go to another dimension!!! Intense and passionate I go from mild to (responsible) wild. Amazing imagination and open minded. call Axel
and
Rent Boy (a male sex escorting service).

Additionally, Uptown Publications, the corporate publisher of the Gay and Lesbian Times also produces Rocket Magazine which contains some of the most filthy, anti-christian and anti-catholic advertisements imaginable. Rocket Magazine has actually featured advertisements for sex toys including a dildo that features Jesus hanging on the cross

The James Hartline Report is urging all San Diegans to join San Diego City Council candidate James Hartline on April 15, 2008 as he speaks out against this horrific and disrespectful honoring of the porn-promoting Gay and Lesbian Times.
Remember, when they declare Gay and Lesbian Times Day in the city of San Diego, they are doing so in the name of every Christian in San Diego, as well as moms and dads and their children.

James Hartline is also urging all citizens to join him for a Prayer Rally at City Hall at 8:30am on April 15, 2008, where he and other like-minded citizens will be praying for political revival in his city.

You can contact the San Diego City Council and tell them to vote NO on honoring the Gay and Lesbian Times and their obsession with the porn industry by going to www.sandiego.gov/citycouncil/

The James Hartline Report
- On The Frontlines Of The Culture War -
April 3, 2008

San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders Scheduled As Featured Speaker
At Vehemently Anti-Christian Gay Republican Convention.
Annual Log Cabin Republican National Convention To Be Held
In San Diego, California Will Feature A Movie That Mocks Christians

Log Cabin Republican National Convention To Be Held In San Diego
From April 10-13, 2008 will feature Mayor Jerry Sanders,
Lesbian District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis and
non-stop attacks against Christian Conservatives who hold a
Traditional Biblical View that Homosexuality is a Sin.

Gay Republican Convention will also Feature the Extremist Anti-Christian Movie
"For The Bible Tells Me So." New York Times Review: "Movie entitled
'For The Bible Tells Me So' features an animated short in which a gay man,
a lesbian and a booming Voice of God (Don LaFontaine) disabuse a homophobe
of his ignorance. The dummy’s name? Christian."

(JHReport) The mayor of San Diego, California has now intensified his disturbing record of attacking Christian Conservatives by agreeing to be one of the featured speakers at an upcoming national convention for the Log Cabin Republicans. The Log Cabin Republicans, a vehemently, anti-christian gay Republican organization, has announced that San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders will be one of their featured speakers during the group's national convention to be held from April 10 - 13, 2008 in San Diego, California.

The appearance by Sanders at the convention is sure to leave many political veterans confused and angry at the mayor of America's 8th largest city, particularly when he needs the votes of Christian conservatives far more than he needs the support of the few homosexual Republicans that live in San Diego. Sanders is currently seeking a second term as mayor during the June 3, 2008 California primary.

Jerry Sanders, a Republican, created a firestorm of controvery last September when he broke a 2005 campaign pledge not to support same-sex marriage. In a move that shocked Republican voters who are fighting to preserve the historical definition of marriage in California, Sanders abruptly broke his campaign promise and signed a city council-issued gay-friendly legal brief to the California Supreme Court. The Sanders-approved legal brief stated that the City of San Diego supports the lawsuit filed by homosexual activists to have marriage redefined to include same-sex couples.

The Log Cabin Republicans have a long history of attacking the values of Christian Conservatives within the Republican Party. Some keen political observers believe that many Log Cabin Republican members are nothing more than homosexual Democratic Party operatives who are infiltrating the GOP in the hopes of dismantling conservative opposition to the homosexual movement within the party.

Recent attacks by members of the Log Cabin Republicans against Californians who are defending the traditional definition of marriage have even extended to the Log Cabin Republicans joining with gay and lesbian Democrats to put pressure on California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to sign legislation which would legalize homosexual nuptials in the state.

As recently as last year, NBC was reporting on the aggressive tactics of the Log Cabin Republicans to push forth the legislation to redefine marriage: " 'When it comes to marriage, we believe in the fundamental fairness of the American people. There has never been a major civil rights movement that has failed in the United States,' said statewide director of the Log Cabin Republicans, James Vaughn.
"The California Legislative Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Caucus at the capitol are all Democrats, NBC reported.
"' Log Cabin is working on that,' Vaughn said. 'One of my goals this year is to start building a farm team of Republicans who can run credible campaigns.'
"Log Cabin Republicans are meeting with the Schwarzenegger administration, seeking appointments to state boards and commissions as part of their grassroots campaign.
" 'Although the governor is unlikely to sign a gay marriage bill in 2007, the Log Cabin Republicans are not giving up,' Luery reported. They said they are committed to broadening the reach of California's Republican party.
"California's marriage equality bill, similar to a measure vetoed by Schwarzenegger in 2005, was written by Democratic Assemblyman Mark Leno of San Francisco."

Some of the current activities of the Log Cabin Republicans are viewed as dangerous by many long time Republican activists and leaders. Priscilla Schreiber, a popular boardmember of the Grossmont Union High School District, says that the Log Cabin Republicans are causing great concern for those who are trying to preserve the foundational principles of the Republican Party. Regarding Mayor Sanders speaking at the group's national convention, Schreiber said, "This is one more step towards furthering their agenda by infiltrating the Republican Party and desecrating the planks of the Republican Party Platform."

Mrs. Schreiber, who was reelected in a landslide victory to the East San Diego County school board in 2004, is seeking a third term this year. It was Schreiber's stand against the infiltration of the radical gay agenda in her school district which fueled her popularity and her political career. Schreiber is not alone in her criticism of the Log Cabin Republicans and their liberal, anti-christian agenda. John Steele, a San Diego-based military veteran and long time Republican leader, told the James Hartline Report that he is greatly concerned with the moral direction of the country and the attempts to hurt the military by promoting homosexuality within its ranks.

In a time of war, the last thing that the military is looking for is a lack of cohesion within its armed forces. Yet, that is exactly what the Log Cabin Republicans will be accomplishing if they get their way. Joining gay activists within the Democratic Party, the Log Cabin Republicans are seeking to end the the military's ban on the practice of male sodomy by male soldiers. On the agenda for this year's national Log Cabin Republican's convention in San Diego is a session titled: The Path to Victory.

The Path to Victory session is described this way: Find out what's ahead in Congress and in state legislatures on issues such as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), relationship recognition, and more.

To put this particular session into context, a review of the Log Cabin Republicans' website provides clarity. The group states: As our nation fights the war on terrorism, we need the most qualified and competent service members, regardless of their sexual orientation. The Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy is undermining our efforts to win this battle.

Joining Mayor Sanders as a speaker at the convention will be lesbian San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis. Of great concern to Christian voters in San Diego is the appearance of Dumanis at an event by a group which has the kind of serious discriminatory view of Christians as that held by the Log Cabin Republicans. "How can Bonnie Dumanis participate with a group that attacks Christians at the same time that she is responsible for prosectuting hate crimes committed against Christians?" asks James Hartline, a well known Christian Conservative leader in San Diego.

The Log Cabin Republicans make very little effort to hide their disdain and their discriminatory attitude towards Evangelicals within the Republican Party. On the Log Cabin Republicans' website they describe in detail their hate-filled attitude towards Christian Conservatives this way:

"Defeating the radical right and transforming the GOP will allow gay and lesbian
Americans to achieve full equality much sooner-decades sooner. The radical right
represents the last obstacle on the path to full equality. Defeat them in the grassroots
of the GOP and all of us can enjoy the benefits of liberty much sooner."

To gain a better understanding of just how hostile the Log Cabin Republicans are to the Christian Conservative influence inside of the GOP, one needs to look no farther than a 2006 press release issued by the group after the U. S. House of Representatives failed to approve President Bush's constitutional marriage amendment that limited the definition of marriage to one man and one woman:

Log Cabin Praises Resounding Defeat of Anti-Family Constitutional Amendment in U.S. House : "....This proposed amendment to our constitution is about discrimination. It is about fear. It is unnecessary. It is unwarranted and it should be soundly defeated. Today's victory for the forces of freedom and fairness highlights a growing chorus of Republican and conservative opposition to a constitutional amendment on marriage. Log Cabin aggressively lobbied House and Senate Republicans against this amendment and mobilized unprecedented grassroots support from across the nation, hand-delivering thousands of postcards to Members of Congress asking them to oppose this anti-gay amendment."

James Hartline says that Jerry Sanders is once again making an extremely revealing blunder by speaking at an Anti-Christian, Anti-Republican platform event at the same time that he is seeking the vote of Christian Conservatives in the current mayor's race. "Mayor Sanders continues to aggressively participate with groups that have an extremely hateful view of Christians and those who believe in the traditions articulated by America's Founding Fathers," says Hartline.

What makes Hartline even more concerned about the Log Cabin Republicans' current national convention to be held in San Diego is the group's very specfic attack on Biblical Christianity, an attack that is being highlighted during the convention. Among the featured events at the convention is the presentation of a film titled "For The Bible Tells Me So."

Incredible as it may be, the Log Cabin Republicans are actually showing this hate-filled, anti-christian movie with the director in attendance during the convention. To put things in perspective, Hartline asks, "Why is an alledged Republican political organization showing an anti-christian religious movie at its convention?" Hartline points out that the movie is being shown right after those in attendance participate in a cocktail party.

A review in the New York Times stated that the movie, Daniel Karslake’s documentary “For the Bible Tells Me So”, won’t win any prizes for technique, but innovation surely ranks very low on this filmmaker’s to-do list. Mr. Karslake has said that the movie is mainly intended as a feature-length primer that can be deployed in arguments with homophobes."

The movie is so repugnant in its attack on traditional Christianity that it is incredible that the mayor of San Diego would be willing to partner with such bigotry. Hartline says that Mayor Jerry Sanders has now reduced the mayoral office in San Diego to nothing less than the office of anti-christian bigotry.

The New York Times review of the Log Cabin Republican-embraced movie reveals an even more twisted analysis of the film: "Filmgoers and critics who are mainly interested in aesthetics will have little tolerance for this secular sermon. Viewers who got this particular memo long ago will likely deem it condescending, a word embodied by this movie’s most unfortunate sequence, a smart-alecky animated short in which a gay man, a lesbian and a booming Voice of God (Don LaFontaine) disabuse a homophobe of his ignorance. The dummy’s name? Christian."

Footage from the film attempts to depict all Christians who believe homosexuality is a sin as hatemongering criminals. The director of the film does this by putting together bits and pieces of religious hate speech by various fanatics and extremists. For the mayor of San Diego and the district attorney to participate in any event that features this film under the guise of politics is really a monumentally disgraceful event for the City of San Diego.

The fact that the San Diego County Republican Party continues to endorse Sanders after he betrayed his promise during his original mayoral campaign to not support same-sex marriage is very troubling for most conservative voters in San Diego. The idea that Sanders is now participating with a group that is so hateful in their attacks on Christians, to the point that the convention is devoting a good portion of its time to mocking Bible-believing Christians, makes it really disgraceful for the GOP leadership to continue supporting Sanders.

"Christian Conservative voters have lost all confidence in Sanders to govern with fairness and impartiality," says Hartline. "And voters equallly, have no confidence that lesbian District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis will ever prosecute hate crimes being committed against Christians in San Diego. Her particpation in this extemist anti-christian convention really proves that point quite well," Hartline adds.
