In the early days of Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. he would send a messenger with a business card to the home of his defeated political enemy.  Former District Attorney candidate Wally Wade comes to mind.  A calling card to his foes that in essence said, “I destroyed you.”  

Since we don’t have the time to find a decent messenger and we wouldn’t want the grand jury investigation to follow if we showed up at Michael J. Schroeder’s house, we have created a digital calling card of our own:  

Our calling card to Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. Simply click and print.


Simply print it out Michael and you will be the proud recipient of our calling card.  

For the past three months we have been telling you who Craig Hunter is, what he is about, and the unsavory political players that surround him.  We watched the newspapers and blogs to elicit feedback about our posts.  One of the prevailing themes was that this website was related to and somehow Bill Hunt friendly.  

That perceived theme made us laugh.  While we approve of Bill Hunt, this site was never a cheerleader for Bill Hunt.  Go back and check our posts.  When were we ever on the Bill Hunt bandwagon?  That we predicted Hunt would get flogged in the media while his challengers received flowery puff-pieces was only meant to illustrate the overbearing influence the Establishment and Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. has over the media. 

No friends, this blog was a counter-insurgency campaign against Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.  Consider us similar to the American revolutionaries.  Right now in Orange County there is a war being waged.  On one side are the decent, hardworking, law-abiding citizens, and true conservatives struggling to make ends meet and do the right thing.  On the other side are the blood sucking Republican hacks, led by Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. who could care less about you.  They only care about one thing, getting rich and amassing power for the sake of power.  Power so they can feel above you.  

No one exemplifies that more than Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.  He is a vile, disgusting, pathetic waste of a human being.  This site was about exposing Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. and the political hacks who surround him.  With the defeat of Craig Hunter we consider that…job well done.  

What is interesting about Schroeder’s world was his ability to control all of the elements for so many years.  Everyone marveled at how Schroeder could think five steps ahead of his political opponents.  Red Commie blogger Matthew Cunningham still dreams about it.  A five-year-old could do the same if he or she had influence over law enforcement, the courts, media, and elected officials.  No skill there.  

But something interesting has happened of late in Schroeder Fantasyland.  A wonderful thing called, chaos has set in.  Starting with his blistering defeat by the simple-minded OC Supervisor Janet Nguyen, Schroeder has failed at every endeavor he’s tried.  He lost the convicted felon Mike Carona.  He lost his law suit against HB Mayor Debbie Cook, he lost previous Sheriff candidate Paul Walters, he lost previous Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, he lost the recent California governor candidate Steve Poizner, he lost the Anthony Adams recall campaign, and now he has lost OC Sheriff candidate Craig Hunter.  

Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. is a capital “L” Loser.  What makes any of you out there think he is effective with that track record?  His grip on power has slipped and the sharks smell blood in the water.  Unfortunately Schroeder will continue to lurk in the lower cesspools of seedy political backrooms for some time to come. 

We’ll put out this little warning to any of you current or future politicos…if you think joining forces with the scum-of-the-earth Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. is in your best interest, think again.  We will be there waiting and ready to tell the truth about who you are too. 

Consider us the truth…and the truth is your worst nightmare. 


V is for Vendetta.

On May 2nd, 2010 we here at the Who is Craig Hunter blog wrote this in our post entitled, “Craig Hunter is a Sad…and a Loser“:

Mark our words.  The OC Register is a journalistic bag of crap that is controlled and operated by Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.  They will do everything they can to ensure Bill Hunt does not become Sheriff, because Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. says so.  Here is the timeline for publishing in the Register:

The week of the 24th:  Hit piece on Hunt

The week prior to the election:  A second hit piece on Hunt by the editorial board and several columns by Mickadeit where he uses his writing skills to profess his extreme doubt in Hunt’s ability to lead and how his support is for Hunter.

Today in the OC Register, the editorial board formally endorsed Craig Hunter for sheriff.  No surprise to us…we told you it would happen.

Does it strike anyone who has been reading this blog (and BTW, thank you all for your support we have had thousands of hits) that we are onto something here?  Everything we said was going to happen in this election has happened.  We have predicted this week and fully expect that OC Register columnist, Frank Mickadeit will come out in favor of Craig Hunter.  Not only that, Frank is going to do his best to help Craig Hunter distance himself from Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.  Frank spends an inordinate amount of time chronicling the life and times of the Schroeders in his columns.  You can find Frank drinking expensive red wine and smoking Cuban cigars with pal Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. every Friday at the Establishment hangout of choice, the Gulfstream in Carona del Mar. 

Schroeder pal, Frank Mickadeit

If you don’t remember, Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. is the  chief apologist/ political consultant/ spokesman/ attorney/ campaign chairman of the former sheriff, now convicted felon, Mike Carona.

Schroeder is on the left

Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. has supported, given money, consults, and works the levers of power for Craig Hunter.  They are joined at the hip in this process.

Craig Hunter is on the right with Tea Party wannabe Mark Harris.

With the election quickly approaching, you my brothers and sisters have a choice to make.  Are you going to accept the status quo and corrupt ways of Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. and vote for Craig Hunter?

Or are you going to vote for a new tomorrow?  This election will pave the way for a brighter Orange County.  A vote against Craig Hunter is a vote for a powerful office of sheriff with a budget of $900 million dollars NOT controlled by the likes of Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. 

In the words of Ronald Reagan, whom Dana Rohrabacher evoked when trying to secure the OC GOP endorsement of Mike Carona back in 2006, “Are you better off today than you were four years ago” when it comes to the OC office of Sheriff?  Were the times of Mike Carona so great?  Was it good for the sheriff’s department to have their elected officer Mike Carona led out of HQ in handcuffs?  Was it good for Orange County to have a sitting sheriff convicted of federal felony?

Who made this possible?  Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.

Who will continue the policies and corrupt practices of Mike Carona?  Craig Hunter.

And that friends, is why we call Craig Hunter…Mike Carona the Second.

The liars, losers, and lemmings of Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.

I'm Dave Lopez and I love working for Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.

As we accurately predicted, Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. has been a busy little bee, buzzing around Orange County this spring time.  His whimpy, limp wristed, sting has been felt as Schroeder finally pulled the trigger on his Bill Hunt hatchet job.  It came in the form of KCAL 9’s Dave Lopez.  If you remember, Dave Lopez is owned and operated by Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.  Schroeder if you don’t remember is the  chief apologist/ political consultant/ spokesman/ attorney/ campaign chairman of the former sheriff, now convicted felon, Mike Carona.

We said it before in previous posts and we will explain again now.

On May 2nd, on our post titled “Craig Hunter is Sad…and a Loser” we stated the following:

“The week of the 24th:  Hit piece on Hunt”

As predicted today, May 24th, we got our hit piece on Hunt.  Dave Lopez, who we listed on April 11th, 2010 and May 21st, as being owned and operated by Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. came through…just as we said.  The play book is old, tired, and worn out.

Lopez’s story slammed Hunt for defending an innocent gang member.  How do we know it was a hatchet job by Schroeder???

I shill for Schroeder

Enter Santa Ana police chief Paul Walters, the spinless Schroeder hack, who ran for Sheriff as Schroeder’s Carona replacement during the appointment process in 2008.  If you again check our post, “Craig Hunter is a Loser” from April 20th, you will see how we documented Walters association with Schroeder.  And did Lopez identify Paul Walters as a Sandra Hutchens supporter now?


And if it couldn’t get any better, after Lopez interviewed Walters he spoke with???

I'll do anything to bust Hunt's balls.

You guessed it, Susan Kang Schroeder, the wife of Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.  And did Lopez identify Susan Kang Schroeder as a Craig Hunter supporter?


Dave Lopez appears to be a model of objective and unbiased reporting with the majority of his story devoted to interviewing both Walters and the verbally challenged Susan Kang Schroeder.

Now enter Frank Mickadeit, OC Register columnist.  Frank will seize the moment to run with and drag out this story for the next week.  If he can get it into next week’s paper he will do so as well.  Look for OC Register blogger Martin Wiskol to jump on the bandwagon as well.  Perhaps we can make it a threesome and have a Register editorial piece from Steven Greenhut this weekend or next.

All of the cogs in the Schroeder machine are running at full steam to destroy Bill Hunt.  And what is the end game for Schroeder?  By distancing himself from Hunter (see our previous post), who is certain to go down in an enormous ball of political flames, Schroeder shows he’s not weak.  By damaging Hunt now, Schroeder ensures a stronger Sandra Hutchens during a run-off if that occurs.  Schroeder is confident he can manipulate and bully Hutchens just as he does to Lopez, Mickadeit, Wiskol, and Greenhut.

All of this time wasted to get their candidate Craig Hunter into the number 2 position (fat chance) for a run-off with Hutchens.  Trust us when we say, Hunter’s political career is dead.  And it will be another glorious loss for Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.

But hey, that’s why we call Craig Hunter…Mike Carona the Second.

What happens when you deal with Schroeder

Well, well, well…my haven’t the tables turned in the world of Craig Hunter.  Craig Hunter, once the darling of Michael J. Schroeder, Esq., the heir apparent to the Mike Carona throne, has been thrown under the bus by Schroederite and GOP Chairman, Scott Baugh.  It appears our campaign of subversion and A-symetric warfare has taken a toll on the Establishment players.  Good.

Let us explain.

Whilst perusing the Red Commie blog, we came across a new little gem written by JL “Buzz” Aguirre.  In this less than masterfully concocted pile of crap, “Buzz” gives a partial “expert” analysis of where the OC Sheriff’s race stands as of this moment.  “Buzz” speaks of several things and we will start with this:

“The race pits Mr, [sic] Hunt and Mr. Hunter against the Real Machine – now, the Real  Machine is the same behind the scenes machine, largely responsible for Sheriff Hutchens’ appointment, in the first place, and not the OCGOP”.

The “Real Machine”?  Are you kidding you with this bag of crap???  Pardon our French but there are few words to convey our disbelief at the pile of trash “Buzz” is trying to write.  The “Real Machine” is the OCGOP and its’ Chairman Scott Baugh.  The “Real Machine” is Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.  The “Real Machine” is Mike Carona.  The “Real Machine” is DA Tony Rackauckas.  The “Real Machine” is the OC Register’s Frank Mickadeit.  The “Real Machine” is Craig Hunter.  That Hunt and Hunter are running against the “Real Machine” makes absolutely zero sense.

Don’t you sit over there in your White Palace, “Buzz” and think we will sit idly by while you try to distort the record on who or what the “Real Machine” is all about.  Just like Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. and his protegé for sheriff, Craig Hunter, you think we are stupid, ignorant, uninformed little people with small minds.  You couldn’t be further from reality.

Look at what “Buzz” is trying to do for Schroeder and his cronies.  They know Hunter is a Loser…apparently they have been reading our blog.  They know Hunter isn’t just going to lose, but he is going to lose big.  They can’t control Hunt, therefore they can’t have a sheriff’s department with Hunt.  Who does that leave them?  Hutchens.  They are pulling away from Hunter so his massive loss this June 8th doesn’t taint their already blood stained hands.  Additionally, Hunter’s loss will show just how weak Schroeder has become.  Schroeder wouldn’t want that now, would he?

Don’t believe us?  Get a load of what “Buzz” says next:

“OC Sheriff candidate Craig Hunter agreed with the Baugh Initiative – the Kiss of Death. We caught up with Chairman Baugh to get his reaction on our prediction for the OC Sheriff’s race. Although Craig Hunter pledged to abide by the Baugh Initiative, his (Hunters’) reasoning according to Baugh is not consistent with the initiative. Rather than resulting in reform, Hunter took the pledge because he thinks that taking money from the people you work with is tantamount to conflict of interest. Further, Mr. Baugh questions Mr. Hunters’ commitment to the race. Moreover, even if fully committed, Mr. Hunter lacks the experience running for elected office, as is the case with the OC Sheriff 2010 race.”

Craig Hunter must be pissed.  We would be.  So since their boy is gonna lose, and lose big, now they are saying via Baugh that they “question” Hunter’s “commitment” to the race and Hunter “lacks the experience running for elected office”!!!  Are we living in fantacyland?

Schroeder and company have been talking up Hunter’s experience as a deputy chief of Anaheim for months.  They have been hyping him as God’s greatest gift to public service.  Just click on our post here where Jack Anderson, mouthpiece the OC GOP, Baugh, and Schroeder, proclaims at the OC GOP Central Committee meeting how qualified Hunter is for the job.  But in a completely odd turn-of-events, now it seems Hunter’s job experience doesn’t seem to matter so much and his campaigning experience is lacking.  Oh and by the way, Hunter isn’t very committed to the race either.  Talk about 180 degrees.

I’m serious, we can’t make this heaping steamy pile of cow dung up.

Let us continue using the same quote.  Baugh then goes on to question Hunter’s motives for taking the Baugh pledge.  Baugh says Hunter’s reasons for taking the pledge were, “not consistent with the initiative”.  Why might you ask?  Because Hunter’s interpretation of the pledge has more to do with not taking money from those you work with rather than being anti-union.  Are you serious? 

So let us get this straight…because Hunter is a Loser, and you Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. are going to lose big on June 8th, you are also going to speculate and use the excuse that Hunter’s definition of the Baugh anti-union pledge was not the same definition of said pledge?  Oh and let’s not forget that while Hunter took the Baugh pledge to not seek out or obtain a union endorsement what did Hunter do?  In March of this year he sought out the sheriff’s union endorsement.  Hypocrisy in action.

We have two thoughts on this.  Schroeder and Baugh are one, back peddling on their failed experiment in the Mike Carona repeat, and two, they are seriously throwing Hunter under the bus…strike-that, it’s a train.  So much for loyalty.

What you are witnessing is Schroeder at his best, or worst, whichever way you like to look at it.  Since Schroeder and the Establishment have a Loser (Hunter) on their hands that, let us remind you, they hand-picked, now it’s off to the races to discredit Hunter, destroy his credibility, demean his standing further, and chalk up his Loser-ness to not being “committed” enough and not “interpreting” the Baugh pledge correctly.  It’s not our fault they say, it’s Hunter’s.

Does any of this strike you as dirty, rotten, filthy, low-ball, lowest common-denominator, politics?  Ladies and Gentlemen, this is classic Michael J. Schroeder, and he has once again revealed his true self.  First he tries to replace Mike Carona with Craig Hunter.  As that pie-in-the-sky dream crumbles, Schroeder does what Schroeder does best…he tries to re-write history or in the case of Craig Hunter, write off the candidate.  Old habits die-hard.

When you make a deal with the devil Craig Hunter, the devil is in the details.  Apparently you didn’t read the fine print.  And this further proves what we have been saying about you for the past several months.  When you enter into a contract with the likes of Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. it says more about your character, morals, beliefs, and ethics than the words you utter or the past accomplishments you have earned.  To align yourself with that filthy, rotten, dirty, two-bit king-maker, Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. speaks volumes about your lack of character, morals, beliefs, and ethics Craig Hunter. 

As Schroeder and Baugh pull the rug out from underneath of you and begin their destruction of your pathetic reputation, we look on and watch…with a smile on our face.

And that is why we call Craig Hunter, Mike Carona the Second.

Kissing Ass is so Much Fun!

 “He’s smarter than them and he’s better at politics, so they say he must be breaking the rules”

Red County blogger and political operative, Matthew Cunningham talking about his best buddy Michael J. Schroeder, Esq., as quoted in the LA Times, January 7th, 2007.

Cunningham loves Craig Hunter as much as he loves Mike Carona and Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.  They are just peas-in-a-pod.

You do the math.

Well here we are in the home stretch of a very interesting Sheriff’s race in the Big OC.  For the past several weeks we have been carefully detailing who Craig Hunter is and the Establishment players surrounding him.  While we have provided many historical references for you to feast on, now it is time to put it all together and look deep into the crystal ball.  Our fortune-telling abilities will show you that future events are easy to predict when in possession of historical knowledge.

Last week we were amused as the infantile Matthew Cunningham became completely unhinged over the results of the most recent Lewis Consulting Group Sheriff’s race push poll.  The Lewis Consulting Group is owned by John Lewis.  According to the push poll, the Sheriff’s race is a dead heat between appointed Sheriff Sandra Hutchen with 21% and former Lt. Bill Hunt at 20%.  Suspiciously, there was no mention of our good friend Craig Hunter.  The push poll also asked about voters sentiment on Sandra and Bill’s negatives.  For Sandra it was a foreclosure on a rental property she possessed some years ago.  And for Bill it was his alledged involvement in providing favorable treatment to Greg Haidl.

What is the crystal ball saying?

To get to the future we must first look to the past.  Just like peas and carrots, Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. and John Lewis are inseparable in the world of OC Politics.  If you recall Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. is  the  chief apologist/ political consultant/ spokesman/ attorney/ campaign chairman of the disgraced former sheriff, now convicted felon Mike Carona

Lewis was/is the co-consultant to Mike Carona.  An interesting side note, Lewis was also the co-consultant to Schroeder’s first pick for Sheriff this election cycle and during the Sheriff’s appointment in June 2008, Santa Ana police chief Paul Walters.

The crystal ball is starting to speak.

For the past several weeks, OC Register Editor Ken Brusic and OCR reporters Tony Saavedra, Martin Wiskol, and OCR columnist Frank Mickadeit have been silent as to their positions on the Sheriff’s race.  It is no secret that Brusic is a fan and loyalist to Hutchens.  Wiskol and Mickadeit are firmly in the Schroeder camp.  A little fun fact, did you know Mickadeit can been seen each Friday at the Gulfstream restaurant in Newport Beach smoking a cigar and drinking expensive red wine with Schroeder and pals?  Saavedra is a windsock, a rudderless soul, who prefers Rolladex reporting from the comfort of his desk due to the rigors of hoisting his fat ass into the field.

They have been silent because they are awaiting a sign and signal from their handler, Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.  That sign and signal was the most recent Lewis push poll.

The crystal ball speaks.

Here is how the remainder of the Sheriff’s race will play out at the hands of the Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. and the Establishment.  Craig Hunter is a non-factor.  We know this for two reasons.  First, he is Craig Hunter, the biggest empty suit to grace the OC political scene since Dick Mountjoy.  Second, the Lewis push poll DIDN”T EVEN POST CRAIG HUNTER’S NUMBERS!!!  Hunter is obviously polling well below 5%.  Lewis and Schroeder did not want to embarrass their candidate and reveal how pathetic their choice for Sheriff really is.

More importantly though, their push poll questions about the negatives of Sandra Hutchens and Bill Hunt tell us all we need to know.  In the next couple of weeks, Martin Wiskol and Frank Mickadeit will start to write hit-pieces on Hunt and his actions during Greg Haidl’s pot arrest in 2005.  They will use the previously unreleased Attorney General’s report that says Bill Hunt used poor judgement during the incident to discredit Hunt. 

Ken Brusic will be torn.  While his heart and desires lie with Sandra, Brusic’s handlers will press for more negative coverage on Hunt.  Brusic will have to decide if he will give equal time to Sandra’s negatives or risk looking like the shill he is and pour all of the Register’s resources against Hunt.  Brusic will fail the test and go all in on Hunt.

Tony Saavedra will be caught in the middle.  The pressure on Saavedra will be of Biblical proportions.  On the Brusic side he will be asked to write only positive stories on Sandra.  On the Schroeder side Saavedra will be pressed to write negatives on Hunt, lest he lose his precious access to Schroeder and his wife Susan Kang Schroeder, who if you remember, is second in command at the District Attorney’s office.

In the distance, Schroeder lover, and mental masturbation artist, Matthew Cunningham will be pumping his fist and cheering the Register every time they post a negative story on Hunt.  Matthew Cunningham will take every opportunity to say, “I told you so” as he tries to put his lust of Mike Carona to rest.  Cunningham and his pathetic band of lackies will click their heals and weigh in with every ounce, and we mean it when we say “ounce”, of credibility they think they have.

Mark our words.  The OC Register is a journalistic bag of crap that is controlled and operated by Michael J. Schroeder, Esq.  They will do everything they can to ensure Bill Hunt does not become Sheriff, because Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. says so.  Here is the timeline for publishing in the Register:

This week:  Silence

Next week:  Puff piece on Hutchens and/or Craig Hunter

The week of the 17th:  Puff piece on Craig Hunter and/or Hutchens

The week of the 24th:  Hit piece on Hunt

The week prior to the election:  A second hit piece on Hunt by the editorial board and several columns by Mickadeit where he uses his writing skills to profess his extreme doubt in Hunt’s ability to lead and how his support is for Hunter.

We have told you time and again how the Establishment plays the game here in Orange County.  They fear Bill Hunt because he is independent and won’t play ball with them.  Just like Mike Carona before him, they can control Craig Hunter and they can mitigate the politically weak and inept Sandra Hutchens.  All guns are trained on Hunt and the dutiful OC Register will come to the beckon call of Michael J. Schroeder, Esq. 

The Register did it time and time again for Mike Carona.  Just remember, “Persistance Pays”.

And that ladies and gentlemen, is why we call Craig Hunter…Mike Carona the Second.
