JOHN HAMBRICK’S FORKED TONGUE CATCH PHRASE
Is it any wonder nobody trusts anything any politician ever says about anything? Recent case in point…
We all know that Assembly Speaker-of-the-Weak John Hambrick has double-crossed the conservatives in his caucus who voted for him as Speaker-designee after double-crossing the moderates in the other camp.
We also know that despite his signed Taxpayer Protection Pledge to the voters of his district and the people of Nevada that he would “oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes,” Hambrick has now publicly stated in two separate broadcast interviews that he intends to break his promise and support Gov. Brian Sandoval’s coming billion dollar tax hike.
We also know that Mr. Hambrick claimed he was removing conservative Assemblywoman Michele Fiore from the Taxation Committee because of her situation with the IRS, but then removed two other no-new-taxes conservatives from the same committee who had no such IRS problems whatsoever.
Which makes this paragraph from his campaign website nothing short of a sick joke…
“As a Nevada State Assemblyman, I am grateful to the voters who elected me. In this time of uncertainty, the citizens of Nevada need leadership they can trust. They deserve a person who has a proven commitment to community service; and someone who feels, as they do, that honesty and integrity isn’t a catch phrase, but rather a deeply held value that should dictate one’s actions at all times, especially in public office.”
In short, it turns out that you just can’t “trust” John Hambrick for lack of “honesty and integrity.”
I wonder if he had his fingers crossed behind his back when Nathan Emens wrote that for him?
DEAR JOHH: RESIGN OR RECALL
In case you missed it yesterday, I have drafted a letter to Speaker-of-the-Weak John Hambrick urging him to do the “right” thing and resign as Speaker-designee or face a recall once such an effort can legally be commenced 10 days after the start of the 2015 legislative session.
That letter will be delivered to Mr. Hambrick on Friday, and if you’d like to add your name, please e-sign it before midnight, January 1, 2015.

RECALL FEVER: CATCH IT!
Word on the street is that the Nevada GOP establishment has taken notice of our “Resign or Recall” effort directed at Assembly Speaker-of-the-Weak John Hambrick and are scratching their heads wondering if this isn’t just bluster by a bunch of right-wing kooks…that we’re not really serious.
I don’t know about you, but I’m as serious as a heart attack.
Serious enough that yesterday afternoon I officially registered the “Recall Hambrick PAC” with the Secretary of State.

Serious enough that all three directors of the Recall Hambrick PAC are registered voters in Mr. Hambrick’s Assembly District 2.
Serious enough to assure that all three directors voted in the last general election, making all three eligible to form an official recall committee 10 days after the start of the 2015 Legislature if necessary.
Indeed, this notion that this recall talk is just an attention-seeking idle threat on my part reminds me of the following quote by Robert Ringer, author of the book Winning through Intimidation…
“The secret to bluffing is to not bluff.”
I HOPE Mr. Hambrick and the GOP establishment thinks this is a bluff. I really, really do.
