Split Between Fundamentalists & Accommodationists Threatening GOP’s SBC Primacy

A factional war has broken out between traditionalist conservatives and accommodationists within the San Bernardino County Republican Central Committee that is threatening to destroy the spirit of coordination and purpose that has allowed San Bernardino County to remain as one of the last bastions of Republicanism in the Golden State.
The intraparty fighting is so intense that the ascendency of the GOP locally, which has remained intact against substantial odds throughout the decade-and-a-half since the sheer numbers of voters in California’s largest geographic county grew to favor the Democrats, could be shattered, such that more than a dozen Republican candidates who were previously considered shoo-ins in local races are in danger of being voted out of office.
In 2021, Phil Cothran, Sr. was selected chairman of the San Bernardino County Republican Central Commitee. His advancement to that position seemed a solid choice. As the owner of the State Farm Cothran Insurance Agency in Fontana, his success in the business world had enabled him to become a major contributor to Republican candidates and causes beginning in the 1990s. His support of Acquanetta Warren, a Republican councilwoman in Fontana from 2002 until 2010, at which point she ran for mayor of the former steel city, was key to her victory that year and subsequently in 2014, 2018 and 2022. Consistently since her election as mayor, Warren was able to build and maintain a ruling coalition on the Fontana City Council composed of Republicans, a remarkable feat, given that for over a decade  registered Democrats have outnumbered Republicans in the city by a roughly 5-to-2 margin. Through active efforts at coordination among Republicans and drives to get out the Republican vote, Fontana long served as a model for the rest of San Bernardino County, where likewise, with only a few exceptions in the county’s desert areas, Republicans are at a numeric disadvantage to their Democratic counterparts.

By Forcing Questionable Attempted Murder Case Vs. Teen, DA’s Office Has Lost Leverage It Needs To Get Him Into A Psychological Institution

More than seven weeks after Judge Arthur Benner II and more than three weeks after Judge Shannon Faherty “erred on the side of caution” and allowed five counts of attempted murder to stand against 18-year-old Sebastian Bailey Villaseñor relating to what was previously alleged to be extensive plans to shoot several students at the high school he attended, an effort is on to foreclose the matter by having the youth committed to a mental institution.
Such a resolution would allow a whole host of individuals – from officials with the school to members of the Ontario Police Department to the district attorney’s office to at least three members of the bench who have overseen the case against Villaseñor and its continuation – to save face following the revelation that elements of the case were exaggerated, misrepresented or outright fabricated.
Villaseñor, 18 of Eastvale, was a senior at Ontario Christian High School when he was arrested on February 10 on suspicion of having violated PC 422(A) – engaging in threats of violence. Continue reading

Chino & Local Officials Intensifying CIM Condemned Prisoner Relocation Protest

Chino municipal officials and community members are intensifying their protests lodged with Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation over the relocation of dozens of prisoners on San Quentin’ Prisons Death Row to the California Institution for Men in Chino. Those protests include a demand from Mayor Eunice Ulloa that that the 39 inmates already transferred to Chino be removed and that any planned future importation of condemned men there be rescinded.
Governor Newsom, who was first elected governor in 2018 and reelected in 2022 after easily surviving a recall attempt in 2021, is opposed to the death penalty, having publicly opined that “The intentional killing of another person is wrong” and that “Our death penalty system has been, by all measures, a failure,” having “discriminated against defendants who are mentally ill, black and brown, or can’t afford expensive legal representation.” Newsom, upon coming into office, at once imposed a moratorium on executions and pursued the dismantling of the state’s two Death Rows – the inner high-security portion of San Quentin where 650 condemned men were housed and the housing unit within the Chowchilla Prison where the 21 women consigned to death have been kept. In January 2020, as Newsom was approaching his one-year anniversary as governor, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation initiated a pilot plan which involved transferring 104 inmates off of Death Row to other high-security prisons over a two-year period.

Deputies Shoot & Kill Pedestrian After He Was Twice Hit By Cars

In what was at least the sixth fatal confrontation with a civilian in 2024 by a member or members of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, a 32-year-old Hesperia man was shot by deputies in Victorville yesterday morning after he was twice hit by vehicles while walking on Mariposa Road.
“On Thursday, May 9, 2024, at 9:58 a.m., deputies from the Victorville Station responded to multiple calls of a vehicle vs. pedestrian traffic collision on Mariposa Road,” according to a statement put out by the sheriff’s department. “Callers reported the pedestrian, later identified as Nicholas Contreras, was hit by a second vehicle as he continued to walk around after the first collision.
“When deputies arrived at the scene, they attempted to contact Contreras and discovered he was armed with a knife,” the sheriff’s department statement continues. “Deputies gave Contreras multiple commands to drop the knife and get on the ground. Contreras refused to obey the commands, advanced toward the deputies, and a lethal force encounter occurred. Contreras was struck by gunfire and despite lifesaving measures, he was pronounced deceased at the scene.”
The shooting occurred in the vicinity of 12870 Mariposa Road, according to the department.
