John Renison, Mexican Citizen Running for Congress in San Diego

John Renison erupts in angry rant
after being exposed (see videos below).

In the 2018 election, John Renison, a Mexican citizen, is running as a Republican candidate for the House of Representatives in the 51st district, which includes California’s entire border with Mexico.

Renison aka Juan Ray Renison Rosas has Mexican and American citizenship. The U.S. does not recognize dual citizenship, but the government has not banned it, either. It is a issue of divided loyalty for a congressman, especially in this border district. Renison lied to the American public saying his first experience in politics was his unsuccessful run for the California state senate in 2016, failing to divulge his earlier extensive experience in Mexican politics.

He was a candidate for the Mexican Senate for the far-left Green Party in 2012 and appears to also have been a candidate in 2010 for deputado (representative) of the Congresso de Baja California, that is the Baja state assembly for the “Partido Estatal de Baja California (Baja State Party). He is also an owner of of his mother’s large cross-border, customs brokerage business, which could earn large profits from cross-border initiatives that he may influence and promote as congressman of the CA-51 district.

All this represents a serious conflict of interest and divided loyalty. As Congressman of the 51st district, he would be dealing with very critical issues, some of which have a huge impact on our national interests, such as the massive spills of sewage and toxic waste coming across the border, NAFTA and border security, as well as illegal immigration.

Renison told Eric Bartl in an interview for the San Diego Reader that he became a Mexican citizen in 2003 “to help his business”. He may be an American by chance of birthplace, but a Mexican by choice. If business interests in Mexico can cause him to become a citizen, the question is, what can he not be pressured to do from Mexico due to his financial interests there?

As Mexican citizen and political activist, who has been a candidate for political office in Mexico and who considers Mexicali, Mexico to be his “homeland” from early childhood, it is a reasonable to ask to which country does he owe his loyalty? In Spanish he calls Mexicali (Mexico) his “tierra natal”, his homeland, native land or literally the land of his birth. His first choice would have been a political career in Mexico.

He entered politics in the U.S. after he failed in his attempts to be elected to office in Mexico. A political career in the U.S was his second choice. Yet, when speaking in English, he says he puts America first and that his absolute loyalty to the U.S. cannot be questioned. That is clearly not true, given his prior background in Mexico of political activism with left-wing political parties. When you have citizenship in two countries, by definition, you have divided loyalty.

EVIDENCE OF POLITICAL ACTIVISM IN MEXICO IN HIS OWN WORDS

This video in Spanish, subtitled in English, is a interview of Renison from 2013 by a talk show host in Mexicali, Mexico. Renison talks about his devotion to the Mexican people, his affection for his Mexican “homeland” and his political ambitions in Mexico to serve the Mexican people. He also refers to travelling in the US as “going abroad” in the sense of it being a foreign country for him relative to his Mexican homeland. (The subtitles in English were produced from a certified translation obtained from a professional translator.)

My YouTube channel was taken down, the day after the election. There are still mail-in ballots to count but at this point Renison is losing. To see this video below, which is no longer available on YouTube, go to this facebook link: John Renison -Background Video.

On page 29 of this register of candidates for the Mexican Senate lists “John Ray Renison Rosas” as a substitute candidate for the Mexican Senate in the 2012 election in Mexico. (If they win office, substitute candidates do play an active role in a parliamentary system, taking the place of the senator when he is not available.) A number of references to his political candidacy — often on official Mexican government sites — can be found by googling terms such as “Renison Senador” and “Renison Deputado”.

At this link towards the bottom of the page, “Juan Renison” is also mentioned in 2010 as a candidate for deputy of the “Congresso de Deputados” of Baja, California, that is Baja’s state legislature.

In this San Diego Reader Article, John Renison is quoted as saying he is from Mexicali, Mexico, but has lived a few years in the U.S.

鈥淚鈥檓 from Mexicali,鈥 says Renison. 鈥淏ut I have spent four years in San Diego, and three years in Boston where I met my wife and we had our two children.

Renison was also named to serve on a kind of commission by the Mexicali Ayuntamiento (City Council) to work on public safety and to help produce a “Plan for the Development of Mexicali”, as well as probably other such tasks. See his name (Juan Renison Rosas) credited on page 95 in the document at the following link, about halfway down the page.

VIDEO RESPONSE TO CRITICISM

This writer (Roger Ogden) informed the Republican Central Committee about these issues via an email to 48 of the 50 San Diego Republican Central Committee Members on April 8th, just before the committee was to vote on endorsements. The Central Committee willfully ignored the information and endorsed Renison without any discussion at all of the issues of national loyalty and conflict of interest regarding his customs brokerage business. Before the overwhelming vote by our local RINO “leadership” to endorse him, Renison admitted that he was a dual citizen and that he was a candidate for the Mexican Senate in 2012.

This video is the response by John Renison, made on April 8, 2018. The very next day he admitted being a dual citizen and being a candidate for political office in Mexico in recent years. Actually, if you listen closely even in this video, he already admits having past involvement in politics in Mexico, while attacking the person who exposed him.

Video: Response by Renison to questions about conflict of interest and divided loyalty

Renison refers to Ogden as a “hater” and “ignorant”, just for suggesting he could have a conflict of interest and divided loyalty as both a Mexican and U.S. citizen. This kind of personal attack is the tactic the radical left uses to marginalize and silence their critics.

RENISON TALK AT GOP CAUCUS MEETING

This video below was taken at the 80th Caucus Central Committee Meeting in Chula Vista on April 5, 2018. Shockingly, the San Diego GOP, under the influence of Chairman Tony Krvaric, endorsed him three days later by a wide (RINO) majority without any real discussion of the issue.

Renison says right up front that he does not not want to talk about his bio and education any longer. That is understandable, because he grew up in Mexico, has dual Mex/US citizenship and never finished college. He chose to start a political career in Mexico, first, but failed. He also owns very substantial cross-border customs brokerage business interests in Mexico that may reap huge profits from positions that he would support as a Congressman in CA-51, a border district. He says we all know that Mexican customs officials are corrupt and he should know, because he dealt intimately with them on a daily basis in his business. His main qualification, he touts, is that he speaks perfect Spanish — because he grew up in Mexico — and also speaks perfect English, which makes it much easier to bamboozle American voters. He can look and sound either as a native Mexican or native American at will.

RENISON TO CAMPAIGN IN MEXICO FOR U.S. CONGRESS

The next to the last paragraph of this article quotes John Renison as saying he will be campaigning in Mexico for the US Congress, because there are a lot of voters there. That would open up a significant opportunity for election fraud. Many dual citizens live in Mexico and commute to jobs in the U.S. Non residents are not eligible to vote in the District, but it is not difficult to claim a fake address in the district.

Google Translation

Given the number of US citizens who reside in Baja California cities, Renison will seek the vote in Mexico, “through campaigns in the streets, at events with business or government, as well as convene forums on border issues.”

CAIR Subpoenaed in Lawsuit over Sharia in San Diego Schools

This is the latest update on the lawsuit against the radical, corrupt, Marxist San Diego School Board against their attempt to implement the basic concepts of Sharia in San Diego Schools. Sharia includes, among other things, the everyday religious obligations of Muslims and that non-Muslims give preference to Muslims. This is what the San Diego School Board is trying to do. Non-Muslims will be punished, for example for tugging on a hijab, as if it were a mini hate crime. Students will be indoctrinated and brainwashed into a positive view of Islam. Islamic religious practices will be given preference over other religions. Non-Muslims will have to learn to respect Islam more than would be required in other situations. Make no mistake, these are basic Sharia concepts, which will be forced upon our young, impressionable students.

FCDF Issues Subpoenas to Council on American-Islamic Relations in 鈥淎nti-Islamophobia Initiative鈥 Lawsuit

The School Board announced earlier that they ended their partnership with CAIR, but they continue to have connections to CAIR and accept input from CAIR. In other words, not much has changed.

You can donate to the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund here. If they win they should get their legal fees paid by the City, but there is no guarantee they will win and they have other out-of-pocket expenses which will not be covered. Their effort is an expensive one.

This is not just about San Diego. San Diego is the first major beachhead that CAIR is trying to establish in US schools for the acceptance of Sharia in the schools. They intend to spread it everywhere in America. Let’s stop it now in San Diego. Even small donations are helpful. I have no connection to FCDF, just another citizen trying to support their effort.

Chicano Founder: Take Pride in Cop Killing

Rodolfo Corky Gonzales

These are two excerpts from a speech made by Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales in 1969 at UCLA, one of the four founders of the radical Chicano political movement. The “Mission” incident he talks about is apparently a then famous case, in which Chicanos killed a cop in the Mission District of San Francisco in 1969. The Chicanos were members of radical Chicano organizations, including the Brown Berets de Aztlan. See video description for a link.

These revolutionary ideas are still taught in Chicano studies classes in universities and high schools across the nation. Corky’s ashes are scattered around the Zapata statue are Chicano Park in San Diego, which makes the place “sacred” according to the Chicano Park Steering Committee chairman.

A Chongo is a cop and “vato” means “guy”. The “Comancheros” was a group that terrorized ranchers, whom they claimed were living on Chicano land.

The followers of another founder, Reies Tijerina, shot two law enforcement officers in a raid on a courthouse in Tierra Amarilla in New Mexico. They were trying to kidnap the District Attorney. One of the LEO’s was going to testify against him and he was killed shortly before the trial. They brutally beat him to death, put him in his vehicle and pushed it off a cliff into a ravine. They didn’t have enough evidence to charge anyone, but it was pretty certain to have been Tijerina’s men who killed him.

ABC10 News report before Patriot Picnic II in San Diego

10 News does a report two days before the event to try to beef up to opposition to us. I added my comments and replaced some of their imagery with more relevant imagery.

ABC10 is partly owned by TV Azteca and a large percentage of its viewers are Hispanics in the area of Barrio Logan, where Chicano Park is located.

Seems to be somewhat less interest among the opposition than last time. This time it is a little more difficult to demonize us than it was right after Charlottesville. Their propaganda is getting old and stale. It will be hard for them to keep up the hysterical response to our park visits. Some even admit that I may not be a Nazi, after all. I am not sure, but expect a somewhat smaller, less angry crowd of opposition this time. The police will be there in force to keep the peace.

Attorney: Enforce Constitution or Close Chicano Park

The Patriot Fire attorney, Ed Rose, sent the San Diego Attorney a new letter that demands she honor the Bill of Rights and enforce the law or close Chicano Park. He also suggested, that if San Diego City Attorney, Mara Elliot, is not willing to enforce the law, that she is not qualified for her job and should resign.

Chicano Park is a political, La Raza park, where the City uses taxpayers money to promote Chicano ultra-nationalism and communism, in order to ensure political support. The City of San Diego has suspended the Bill of Rights in this supposedly “public” Park. Freedom of speech and freedom of assembly is not allowed for park critics and pro-Americans.

This is the second letter to the San Diego City Attorney by our attorney. In response to our attorney’s first letter, regarding the violation of our civil rights at Chicano Park, the City Attorney, Mara Elliott did not respond directly. Instead she released a purely political statement to the media that pandered to extremist supporters of the park and implied that we are a “hate group.” She did not address the legal issues at all.

Barrio Logan Veterans Raise American Flag in Chicano Park

The Hispanic veterans in Barrio Logan have raised the U.S. Flag in their corner of the Chicano Park and have reportedly said the will not take it down until forced to do so. The Chicano Park Steering Committee has in the past (illegally) forbidden them to raise it, except for three days a year, Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day. It may be possible that the Steering Committee has lifted the ban on the veterans raising their flag on a shorter flagpole in their isolated, very low-visibility corner of the Park due to recent criticism of their ban and to take the pressure off themselves. The American flag is still banned in the center of the Park on the higher, main flagpole. Only the Aztlan flag and La Raza flag are allowed to fly on the main flagpole.

Only the flags of Aztlan, La Raza and Mexico
are allowed to fly freely in Chicano Park

We hope that the veterans will defend their rights. This ban by the Steering Committee has been humiliating and disrespectful of the veterans of Barrio Logan. It is also a violation of their civil rights. All of our great veterans and their civil rights deserve to be fully respected, no matter what their ethnic background. If their rights are being violated by other Hispanics, that still does not make it acceptable or legal. We owe all of our veterans a great debt of gratitude, I think especially our Hispanic veterans, because they served in spite of a history of not always being treated fairly or equally.

The City is responsible, because they allow the Chicano Park Steering Committee, the Brown Berets de Aztlan and their extreme-left allies to trample on the rights of everyone in the Park, who do not kowtow to their radical, anti-American agenda. In return for their support of the Park with our tax money, city politicos get support from the many Hispanic voters, who agree with the extremely anti-American theme of this political Park. Some also support the park evidently without fully realizing how anti-American the ideology is.

San Diego City Attorney’s Response to Chicano Park Warning Letter

When our attorney, Ed Rose, sent a warning letter to the San Diego City Attorney, Mara Elliott, she released the following statement to the public. She did not reply to the attorney at all, which is not professional of her and is disrespectful to our attorney. She is implying that we are a hate group, including the attorney, because we think citizens and taxpayers have a right to visit a public park, have lunch and view the murals at the park, in order to have a critical discussion. She says it is ironic to get a letter from an attorney defending our civil rights on the day after Martin Luther King Day. That is very strange, because we thought Martin Luther King was all about defending civil rights. I guess, it is just our rights, which are not important.
