If you mess with our kids, than I'm going to mess with you!

Thought For The Day:

"If you mess with our kids, than I'm going to mess with you!"James Hartline, Candidate - San Diego City Council, District 3

Bible Passage Of The Day:
"Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." 3 John 1:2

DID YOU KNOW? In my efforts to protect our community's women from being assaulted and raped, I have discovered that there is a violent sex offender who roams the streets of as a homeless person! That's right, a man who was convicted of drugging women and then raping them while they were unconscious, lives as a homeless person on the streets of Hillcrest. I have spent many hours going around the area that he hangs out and talking with the ladies and young girls to warn them about this rapist. Ladies...YOU NEED TO KNOW: many sex offenders live as homeless persons so that the police officers have a harder time tracking them down. Ladies and Moms, make sure that you check out the Megan's Law Website to see if you recognize a predator hanging around your home. The sad part is that a local female police sgt. would not even check out what this rapist was doing when I reported to her the activities of this guy. What if this guy decides to do drugs and attacks one of our community's women at night while they are walking or jogging? You can regularly see this rapist hanging out with the rest of the homeless drug addicts at the Jack In The Box restaurant on 7th & University Ave.

If you are having troubles and need prayer, send your prayer requests in. We have an extensive prayer team network that takes seriously your need for healing, prosperity, family disputes, addictions, fear, depression....whatever. We consider it an honor to serve God and to bring your needs to our Father in heaven during our prayer times. We love you and really do want you to achieve God's destiny for your life while you are on this earth!

James Hartline Is A Big Clown!

Well, I took time off from my campaign for the San Diego City Council to do what I love to do: serve God and minister to the kids in our city. I let the ladies of Mission Valley Christian Fellowship talk me into dressing up as a clown for our Hallelujah Hoedown. At the Hoedown, we ministered to thousands of kids and their families at Qualcomm Stadium. We love our kids! And our San Diego families certainly needed a good celebration to forget, for a moment, the hardship of the terrible fires in recent days. Mission Valley Christian Fellowship, my home church here in San Diego, donated the entire cost of the event, so everything was free for the thousands of families that came to spend an alternative to Halloween with us.

"Now the same night it came about that the Lord said to Gideon:
'Arise! Go down against the camp of your enemies,
for I, the Lord, have given it into your hands."
Judges 7:9

Step back for a moment and consider what happened just one month ago in the San Diego City Council: After a three week war between San Diego Christians and a local municipal government that is no longer listening to the will of the people, San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders betrayed a campaign promise to oppose same-sex marriages as he signed a gay agenda legal brief approved by the liberalized San Diego City Council.

In essence, we now have a tyrannical mayor and city council in San Diego that has shaken its fist at God and said, "We don't care what the people want or what they voted for by passing Prop. 22, we are going to legitimize homosexuality and same-sex marriage anyway!" And sure enough, on Sept. 18th the people were once again punched in the gut and rebuffed as San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders and the San Diego City Council approved a rebellious legal brief supporting same-sex marriage.

Despite the deplorable and arrogant actions of Sanders and the sexual anarchists on the city council, San Diego Christians have not been sitting on the sidelines giving up or giving in. In fact, something quite remarkable transpired during the recent battle over same-sex marriage. On September 18, 2007, fifty Christian Conservatives gathered at city hall to hold a powerful prayer rally to ask for God's intervention in our city and our government. While many are feeling the blows inflicted upon Chrisitanity and marriage by a city government that is out of control and out of touch with the vast majority of San Diego voters, I am declaring something powerful that God revealed to me as a result of our prayer rally.

When we prayed on Sept. 18th, we asked God to release the Holy Spirit into City Hall. The result: Mayor Jerry Sanders and his dark, anti-christian agenda were forced out into the light for the world to see. Now, instead of hiding his plan to institutionalize homosexuality into the city, Mayor Sanders was forced by God to reveal his agenda in the media, for the whole world to see. Now everyone knows what we are dealing with. Now we know who is on our side and who is not. There is no longer a questionable gray area: Mayor Jerry Sanders and the San Diego City Council are in rebellion to the voters and Christianity. And, even more revealing: voters are getting a really clear picture of those who are still supporting Mayor Sanders despite his great betrayal. Simply put, God is separating the wheat from the tares, the sheep from the goats, and it is abundantly clear which people are the sheep and which people are the goats.

With this understanding, we intend to once again, hold a prayer rally at the San Diego City Council Concourse on Tuesday, October 30, 2007. There is no doubt that we are in big trouble, but we believe that prayer will change things. We will be gathering on October 30th to intercede for our government, our city and its citizens.

JHReport -- San Diego Christian Candidate Makes Big Stand At Gay-Friendly Political Forum

The James Hartline Report
- On The Frontlines Of The Culture War -
October 12, 2007

Christian Candidate Makes Big Stand At Gay-Friendly Political Forum:

San Diego Christian Activist James Hartline Reminds Gay Community
That Morality Matters In 2008 San Diego City Council Campaign.

(JHReport) Over the last four years, San Diego's municipal government has been engulfed in a sea of corruption, financial mismanagement, and a bribery scandal that left one councilman dead and two other councilmen convicted in federal court. San Diego voters have been feverishly searching for political leaders with the courage to fix their city's broken moral compass. After an October 9, 2007 candidate forum inside of San Diego's gay community, voters may have found such a candidate in nationally-recognized Christian activist James Hartline.

With a standing room only crowd that included San Diego's most influential gay activists and business leaders, it was clear that Republican City Council candidate James Hartline was the driving force that had brought this many to attend such an early campaign event. Whatever gay community leaders may think of Hartline, there is no doubt that he is big business in Hillcrest, San Diego's homosexual stronghold. According to Hillquest, the leading gay and lesbian Hillcrest website, in 2007 James Hartline was rated as the number one individual name that led viewers to their website. Hartline's name was also in the top ten in 2006 for leading people to In 2005, Hartline was the number three reason that people came to the Hillquest website.

How is it that a born-again Christian and outspoken activist has come to generate so much attention among gays, lesbians, and transsexuals, as well as other fellow Christians? There is no doubt that James Hartline is news. His life story and personal exploits for Jesus Christ have been reported in every media outlet in San Diego. In 2006, the story of how James left a thirty-year involvement in homosexuality to follow Christ was broadcast internationally on the Christian Broadcasting Network's 700 Club.

"I am completely transparent," says Hartline. "Although this leaves me vulnerable to my opponents, I have been willing to tell the world about all of my personal tragedies and victories. Men and women who have fallen into the gutter need to believe that they can make it back out and achieve success in a world that oftentimes does not easily give second chances," he says.

Many gays and even some Christian leaders have asked Hartline why he still lives inside of the gay community if he no longer participates in that life. James tells them, "I know what it is like to be completely abandoned. After years of abusing me, my parents abandoned me to a state reform school when I was 14. In my lowest point as a young teenager, my family just up and left me," he adds.

"I just cannot abandon those I care about," Hartline says of those who are living the homosexual lifestyle. "If I leave, who will tell gays and lesbians in San Diego the truth about their lifestyle? Only a true Christian will face people and give them the truth, rather than what they want to hear to appease them."

The October 9th candidate forum was sponsored by the Hillcrest Town Council. Facing 130 people, many of whom have displayed great disdain for Hartline's Christian activism, was not an easy task for him. However, Hartline was not alone when he faced the well-behaved, but hostile audience. Twelve committed Christian Republicans came to the forum to support Hartline. One of those in attendance was well-respected Republican businesswoman Priscilla Schreiber.

Priscilla Schreiber, President of the Grossmont Union High School District, was reelected to her East San Diego County position in a 2004 landslide. With increasing political clout, Schreiber could have easily chosen to do something else on Oct. 9th than attend an intense campaign forum dominated by homosexual interests. Like James Hartline, Priscilla Schreiber has been viciously attacked by liberal Democrats and pro-homosexual Republicans who do not agree with her strong stand for Christian values.

Not one to bow to fear or intimidation. Mrs. Schreiber has earned a reputation for going into some of the most difficult political environments to stand up for parents, youth and Biblical values. Simply put, Schreiber oftentimes will go where her male counterparts are not willing to go.

"I think what sets you apart, is that you are actually offering District 3 voters a real choice in the upcoming city council race," Schreiber told Hartline after the Oct. 9th forum had concluded.

On his new campaign website, Hartline declares that he is bringing political, moral and civic revival to District 3 and the City of San Diego. There were certainly signs at the Hillcrest Town Council candidate forum that James is backing up what he's declaring on his website. With a dozen Christian leaders standing with Hartline at the forum, it is clear that there is a big change underway in the routine politics of San Diego's gay community.

A number of local pastors attended the Oct. 9th forum, demonstrating that Hartline's longtime stand on behalf of San Diego's youth, fighting pornography and closing down businesses he feels help to spread AIDS, is earning him great respect among many San Diego churches. The presence of San Diego pastors at a gay-dominated political event is serving notice that Christians are preparing to aggressively wrestle for control of the moral direction of Hillcrest, as well as other communities in District. 3.

One of the candidates opposing Hartline in his battle for a seat on the city council is a Republican who recently started to publicly declare his homosexuality. Robert E. Lee, who just recently moved into the district, has really only been known for his previous failed attempt to win the District 2 City Council seat in 2005. In that race, Lee garnered a paltry 250 votes out of 52,154 cast. In moving into District 3, Lee has declared himself a gay Republican, a declaration that has proven futile over the years in a district controlled by gay and lesbian Democrats.

It is perhaps Robert E. Lee's homosexual desperation that has caused him to write extremely disgusting and degrading comments about James Hartline on the Voice of San Diego's public forum website.

Lee seems to be obsessed with Hartline. Here are some of Lee's outlandish comments about James Hartline:
"And finally, he has the pathetic intent to run as a District 3 City Council candidate, which includes Hillcrest, North Park and other neighborhoods with a large gay and lesbian community. How utterly sickening and disgusting that Hartline would hold himself out as a voice of conscience on an issue like this." "We need to preserve society from Hartline, not the other way around. With his past, Hartline has far, far to go before he ever asks citizens to trust him as their elected representative."

Robert E. Lee's twisted comments are typical of the hostile attacks that are routinely made against Christians by homosexuals who have infiltrated the Republican Party. The Log Cabin Republicans, a liberal, anti-christian homosexual organization, regularly crusades against Conservative Christians, seeking to have Christian influence removed from the GOP.

Lee's futile attempts to demean Hartline seem to be falling on deaf ears. Since Hartline and Lee appeared at the Hillcrest Town Council candidate's forum, Hartline has added another $500 to his campaign fund with promises of many more contributions on the way.

The current dynamic in the District 3 City Council race is creating what may turn out to be one of the biggest upsets in California's storied political history. In 2004, current District 3 City Councilwoman Toni Atkins won reelection with only 16,273 votes. With James Hartline facing three liberal Democrats, a Green Party candidate, and a homosexual Republican, he may very well cause San Diego to see a complete shift in its political landscape. With thousands of Christian voters in the district who have previously not voted because of their dissatisfaction with gay leaders, Hartline has the advantage of tapping into this huge religious vote.

The three Democrats in the District 3 City Council race, Todd Gloria, Stephen Whitburn and John Hartley, all appeared in last year's controversial San Diego Gay Pride Parade. City Council candidate James Hartline derides these three men for participating in an event that exposed numerous school children to xxx pornographers, nearly nude male strippers and male transvestites who dress up as nuns to mock the Catholic Church. "I think it's deplorable that men who want to lead our city as elected officials also participate in an event that clearly exposes our city's children to very harmful influences," declares Hartline.

"You will never, ever, see me selling out our kids to get a vote by participating in a pornographic gay parade," adds Hartline. "What my campaign is all about is telling every family in our city that no matter how far you might fall in life, if you work hard and keep your eyes on Jesus Christ, God will take you from the places of defeat and lead you to overwhelming places of honor and success."

James has never waivered in his commitment
to Jesus Christ or his love for the Christians of America.

San Diego and America to stand with him
in his campaign for the San Diego City Council.

On Tuesday - October 9, 2007, James has been invited to
participate in the 2008 District 3 Candidate Forum at

On The Road To Civic Redemption

On The Road To Civic Redemption
James Hartline is pleased to announce that Madeline Strafello has signed on as a major endorser of the Hartline for City Council campaign. Ms. Strafello is a major apartment property owner in District 3 and is very influential in the senior and Christian Communities in the district and San Diego.

Bill Daniel is joining Team Hartline as a campaign advisor on educational issues. Educational improvement, teacher salaries and student safety are extremely important issues to James Hartline.

On the Road to Redemption.
Over the course of the last ten years, James Hartline has proven that God can redeem the troubled soul and bring the man into a place where he can be used mightily by God. James Hartline plans to bring his message of civic redemption to city hall when he his elected. San Diego needs to be redeemed from corruption, immorality, mismanagement and lack of vision.

The Hartline Vision for San Diego is built upon two bookends. One bookend is our children. The other bookend is our seniors. Both children and seniors are the two most critical components to our civic redemption and our city. We must strenghten both of these groups. When one weakens or falls, all of us fall. When both are strong, we all are strong. James Hartline has a proven record of achievement in fighting for the safety of our children. And over the last eight years, James has built lasting and loving relationships with many of San Diego's finest senior citizens.

It is our responsiblity as citizens in between the bookends of children and seniors to ensure their success. We, in the middle, must give our all to these living treasures so that our culture will thrive and prosper. We must always remember where we came from and where we are going. Seniors serve as a memorial for where we came from. Children serve as a guidepost for where we are going.

James Hartline On Night Lights - San Diego Christian Television Talkshow

James Hartline will be appearing for the third time on San Diego's Number One local cable Christian TV Talk Show - Night Lights with nationally recognized author and host James L. Lambert.

The Night Lights interview can be seen on Sunday, August 26, 2007 at 8:30 pm on Cox Cable, Channel 23 (San Diego City Area).

You can learn more about Night Lights and its recognized history of having outstanding guests which include famous athletes, business leaders, entertainers, politicians and ministers: all with a Christian flavor by going to James L. Lambert's website:

You would be amazed at how many professionals in secular, non-Christian arenas, actually profess Christ, but you never hear about their Christianity being mentioned in the press. Night Lights provides a counter to that type of secular media bias. The secular media seeks to supress the idea that Christians are growing in their influence and involvement in all areas of the United States. The press wants the world to believe that Christians are unimportant, irrelevant and uninvolved. Night Lights wrestles that deception to the mat and pins it to an absolute defeat!

James Hartline is pleased to be a part of the outstanding history of Night Lights guests and topics that are important to San Diego voters.

Also, on the program, look for the interview with 20-year San Diego public school teacher Bill Daniel. Bill has many important insights to share in his work with disabled kids, teaching and as a candidate for the Republican Central Committee. Mr. Daniel is also among a growing list of San Diego teachers who are endorsing James Hartline for the San Diego City Council!

More Great Endorsements For Hartline Campaign Coming In!

San Diego's District 3 Christian Vote is beginning to make its stand with James Hartline in his bid for the San Diego City Council. When the vote is finally tallied after the June 3, 2008 elections, James Hartline believes he will have the votes of the thousands of brothers and sisters in District 3 churches who have long desired to have a real Christian represent them at city hall.

Today, James received two new awesome endorsements within the District 3 Christian Community.

Harar Ethiopian Cafe is a wonderful place to experience all of the interesting and spicy food of northeastern Africa. Harar is a central gathering place for San Diego's Christian Ethiopian Community. And the Ethiopian Christian Community in San Diego loves James Hartline and has stood with his ministry for years.

James Hartline is grateful for the campaign endorsement from Harar Restaurant.

Meskerem Bekele, a longtime friend of James is also a leader within San Diego's Christian Ethiopian Community in District 3. Meskerem is also endorsing James Hartline for City Council and promises to bring in many more votes in District 3 for his campaign.

2008 will see a massive get out the Christian vote in District 3 for James Hartline in his bid for the San Diego City Council. For the last 15 years, Christians in District 3 have simply not voted in the District's city council race because of the anti-christian bigotry of Toni Atkins and her predecessor Christine Kehoe.

Now the battle is shifting and James Hartline intends to bring back a voice to the city council for the Christians in the District 3 area. James is a proven warrior for Christian values. Although, the anti-christian bigots have already started attacking James in the hopes of turning off the Christian vote, let it be known that the thousands of Christian voters in District 3 will not be fooled by such bogus attacks against James. His record of true Christian activism over the last seven years is untouchable! An attack on James is an attack on all Christians in San Diego. Every time the phoney, anti-christian bigots attack James, the true Christians in San Diego take it personal and they become even more determined to support James in his campaign for the San Diego City Council.

If you want to see what the Christians in San Diego think about James Hartline, then watch this great video from the San Diego City Council when James led the charge to save the Mt. Soledad Cross:

James helped to bring in hundreds of Christian voters to the city council during a time when the Mt. Soledad Cross issue was in a very precarious place and the cross was nearing removal. It was based upon the work that James did, that public awareness over the removal of the Mt. Soledad Cross was renewed and that battle shifted into a powerful new era of fighting for our religious liberties.

The Hartline Revolution Has Begun In San Diego!

What A Great Day!

Today James Hartline filed his first Form 460 financial statement. The Form 460 filing deadline is August 15, 2007. Each qualified candidate for the city council must file a form 460 financial statement for each quarter.

What is incredible about James filing his Form 460 is that he did it all on his own without paying any accountant or political consultant a single dime! This represents a revolution for the common man in local politics. For too long, wealthy, money-hungry political hacks and political consultants have manipulated voters and fresh candidates to believe that they cannot make it without their professional help. This is simply a lie! We can make it and we will make it without the political consultant greedy hacks that are destroying the electoral system in San Diego.

James did all of his own homework to figure how to file a Form 460 and he filed it with no errors! Why pay professional political consultants thousands of dollars for work that can be accomplished with a little hard work and personal investment?

Without having a fundraiser yet, James has raised $720 and reported $450 in contributions during the July reporting period.

The Hartline Revolution has begun! We are going to fight and fight and fight the corruption in San Diego to give back our city to the people! The people will prevail. James is determined to fight for the people to reclaim an open door policy for all San Diegans at city hall!

Team Hartline Now Has Its Campaign Filing Number!

Hallelujah! The James Hartline Campaign For City Council has now received its official State of California ID Number. The Campaign Filing Number is 1300251.

With many volunteers coming on board, James Hartline is prepared to prove to the money-hungry and deceptive political consultants that a campaign can succeed without their help.

We will soon be having our first fundraiser. We have now received $600 in small contributions and will soon be putting together our new website.

The current political system in San Diego is corrupt. It is threatened by independent, successful activists like James Hartline. They don't want James to succeed because it will prove that citizens can be elected without paying the money hungry consultants that earn a living off of candidates.....very much like parasites do to dying animals. Money-hungry consultants and political hacks want voters to believe that you cannot make it without them. James Hartline is going to prove that they are completely immoral and deceptive liars.

Through Jesus Christ, James Hartline has already won in life and intends to win the District 3 City Council Seat.

Many calls are coming in to James Hartline regarding the fear that is circulating within the traditional political circles in San Diego County. What fear is that? The fear that issues like homosexuality and abortion will be brought back to the campaign table by James. This will force homosexuals like Carl DeMaio and his political consultant friends to have to explain why he is involved in homosexuality and running as a Republican in San Diego's most conservative district: District 5. There is fear that hacks within the Republican Central Committees that support pornography and homosexuality will be forced out of hiding and their true colors will be made known. There is great fear that James will actually do very well in the District 3 race and never again will the wealthy and greedy hacks within the Republican money machine have control over the destiny of political races. The campaign of James Hartline is going to prove that a revolution is underway and voters are going to regain control over their political destiny once again!

The Political Consultant Plan:
Their plan is to try to marginalize James so that the voters will not listen to him regarding these issues. Their plan is silly and so are they. James Hartline will never back down for one minute from fighting all who oppose the values that he believes in.

You can learn more about James and his amazing journey by watching his national appearance on CBN's the 700 Club by going to .
This video presents a sharp presentation of James' journey out prison in 1997 to become one of America's most recognized Christian activists. If you have a loved one who has dealt with the heartbreak of AIDS then this testimonial video will give you strength and the belief that with God all things are possible!

San Diego is desperate for councilmembers who will go to city hall and fight and fight and fight for the people. One thing that voters can be confident of: When James becomes their city councilmember, his door will always be open for them and he will fight for their issues. There will be no more corrupt, backroom deals with James in office. Years of experience at city council meetings have proven to the voters that when James says that he will fight for the voters, the voters can count on him to keep his word!

There is a new warrior in town. He is James Hartline. And the battle belongs to the Lord!

The Naval Junior - ROTC strives to provide a safe, well-disciplined, positive, and caring climate; and while producing students with high self-esteem, who are mentally, socially, academically, and morally prepared to make wise decisions and become productive, healthy citizens, workers, and parents.

When we are truly free through God, liberated from our spiritually destructive former lives, there is an entirely new liberty to accomplish mighty and eternal things for our culture, our fellow citizens and America.

Life has many interesting people and experiences. We never know where God wants to take us until we walk through the door He has opened. Fear must be cast aside and that door kicked wide open so that we run head on into our destinies. Destiny has embraced me. And I have embraced destiny.

Breaking News! Hartline Campaign Becomes Major National Story

ELECTION 2008 Ex-homosexual runs for San Diego City Council Christian activist vies to replace lesbian in district with major 'gay' community.
Posted: June 12, 20071:00 a.m. Eastern

By James L. Lambert © 2007

James Hartline, a Christian activist and self-professed former homosexual is running for a City Council seat in San Diego currently held by a lesbian.
James Hartline, who says he went through a dramatic Christian conversion seven years ago, has been on the front lines of many local battles against homosexual activism, speaking out on the dangers of the "gay lifestyle."

He has told of his conversion in both secular and religious media outlets around the country, including Pat Robertson's "700 Club."

Hartline is vying for a seat that will open after current council member Toni Atkins' term expires in 2008. Council members in San Diego are limited by law to two terms.

Hartline says he now rejects a life of drugs and reckless sexual encounters that is being "replayed over and over again in gay communities and their sex clubs throughout America."

The Third District, where Hartline is running, includes the Hillcrest community, known for its large homosexual population. The last two City Council members from the district are both well-known lesbian Democrats.

Hartline recognizes his campaign will face strong competition from a powerful homosexual lobby in the district. He will run as a Republican in the June 2008 primary.

Hartline said in a statement he is entering the race to "change the politics-as-usual treadmill that is drowning out the will of the people in not only the district but the city of San Diego as well."

His campaign team will include legislative analyst Beverly Wyer, attorney Robert Sutton and financial investor Chuck Stout.

Hartline's announcement caused a stir in the local homosexual media, including the Gay and Lesbian Times, which expressed its concern about Hartline running for a seat traditionally held by homosexual activists.

Hartline's activism includes publicly exposing several registered pedophiles who were actively involved with the annual "gay pride" parade. He worked with the city attorney's office to alert authorities of blatant sexual activity in a local homosexual bathhouse, which closed its doors in April.

Hartline has also informed the public of several local porn bookstores located close to churches and schools. He was also featured in a March 2007 WND story on the involvement of middle school students in the annual "gay pride" parade.

He also has helped draw attention to the effort to save the landmark San Diego cross under threat from a lawsuit brought by an atheist.

Campaign News You Can Use!

News You Can Use!

James Hartline will be the featured guest on the national radio program Preparedness Now!

Monday, June 19, 2007 at 7am (pacific standard time). You can listen live by logging on to the studio's website at:

Host Pam Stegner features some of America's top political leaders and James is pleased to speak with her about the current battles he is waging to protect families and their children in San Diego, California. Additionally, James will speak on the privilege of overcoming great adversity to become one of America's most recognized Christian activists.

On The Campaign Trail:
One Team Hartline supporter, Diana Pappas writes James:
"I will be supporting you and writing my email list of 500 recepients about your campaign."

What many of Hartline's opponents do not realize is that while they have been doing nothing to connect to the tens of thousands of Christian voters in the district, James has spent many years building relationships and friendships with these voters. James has one of the biggest networks of Republican and indepent voting networks in San Diego County. James walks the talk! He is transparent and lives the life that he preaches.

Democratic opponents of Team Hartline love to hang campaign slogans and titles around their political necks when they want to get elected, but in reality, they have little to show for themselves other than the typical, self-serving machinery of radical gay activism. And in the process, the voters of District 3 are left with nothing but a council representative who is self-serving and morally bankrupt. These liberalized political hacks are a manifestation which demonstrates why San Diego's District 3 has so many basic infrastructure problems. When election time comes around, James Hartline will have thousands of the district's Christian voters standing strong with him and calling for an end to the destructive and worthless agenda of the last sixteen years at city hall.

Remember: When James Hartline was fighting to stop the San Diego Gay Pride event in 2005 from allowing sex offenders and pedophiles from harming the children of his district, Toni Atkins and her friends were promoting the event with the sex offenders still involved in the festival planning at Balboa Park.

Whitburn and Gloria, remember those names. They never stood with James when he was standing against the sex offenders. The voters in District 3 will realize who is really on the side of protecting kids from predators and who is not. James Hartline will never, ever stop fighting for the protection of the kids of District 3. Gloria and Whitburn have promoted the San Diego Gay Pride events where children have been exposed to xxx porn companies and other degrading sexually explicit images. Is this the kind of agenda that is good for our youth?

Moms and Dads, young voters and churchgoers, Republicans and Independents are all demanding a change in San Diego's District 3 political agenda. Todd Gloria, Stephen Whitburn and every other business-as-usual political hack in District 3 are now put on notice: James Hartline will contend with you for the hearts and minds of this district's voters. District 3 voters will expect nothing less than a new man at city hall. And that man is James Hartline!

Former homosexual runs for San Diego Council seat long held by ‘gay activists’

By World Net Daily Contributing Columnist
James L. Lambert - June 10, 2007

James Hartline, a self professed ‘Christian activist’, has announced he is running for the City council seat in San Diego’s third district. The seat comes open after current council member (Toni Atkin’s) term expires in 2008. (City council members in San Diego, CA. are limited, by law, to 2 terms in office.)

Hartline is a former homosexual who underwent a dramatic religious conversion seven years ago. He has turned from a life of drugs and reckless sexual encounters which he now totally rejects. Hartline says that unfortunately that type of reckless lifestyle is being “replayed over and over again in gay communities and their sex clubs throughout America.”

Mr. Hartline has been on the forefront of many local battles in an effort to inform the public of the dangers of the gay lifestyle. His dramatic conversion has been told in both secular and religious media outlets around the country, including the Family Channel’s ‘700 club.’
The Third District (where Hartline is running) includes Burlingame, City Heights, Hillcrest, Kensington, Mid-City, North Park, South Park, University Heights, Golden Hill and all of Balboa Park. It’s well known that the Hill-crest community has a large gay population. The last two City Council members from District 3 are both well-known lesbian politicians.
Hartline recognizes that his campaign will face stiff competition from a strong gay lobby in the District. Both prior lesbian council members (Kuehl and Atkins) are both registered Democrats. Hartline will be running as a Republican in the primary which takes place next June (2008).
According to a statement released by Hartline, he is “entering the race to change the politics as usual treadmill that is drowning out the will of the people in not only the district but the city of San Diego as well.” Hartline is forming a campaign team that will includes legislative analyst Beverly Wyer, attorney Robert Sutton and financial investor Chuck Stout.

James Hartline's announcement has caused quite a stir in the local gay media. The Gay and Lesbian Times has expressed its concern about Hartline’s run for an office that traditionally has been held by local gay activists. Hartline was responsible for informing the public of several registered pedophiles who were actively involved with the annual gay parade. He worked with the City Attorney’s office to alert them of blatant sexual activity in a local gay bathhouse. That bathhouse has since closed its doors this April.
Hartline has also informed the public of several local porn/adult book store operations that were particularly close to churches and schools (making their location questionable because of local zoning regulations). He was also featured in a March 2007 World Net Daily story that reported on a middle school children’s involvement in the local gay pride parade held each year in the city. Additionally, Hartline has helped draw public attention to preserving a local religious landmark that was in danger of being removed by a local atheist. Conservatives speculate that it’s no wonder why liberal elements in the city are alarmed to hear that Mr. Hartline is running for public office.
James L. Lambert, host of San Diego's most popular Christian Televison Talk Show, Night Lights, is also a nationally recognized writer for World Net Daily, American Family Association's One News Now, as well as a co-founder of California Christian News.

Candidates return to take another swing at City Council

Matthew Hall reported in his article this morning in the San Diego Union Tribune: June 09, 2007 the current battle for Council District 3:
Candidates return to take another swing at City Council

Mayor Jerry Sanders still has no announced competition, but City Attorney Michael Aguirre has his first rival: attorney Dan Coffey, who has criticized Aguirre at numerous City Council meetings over the past couple of years.

To date, no opponent has stepped forward in District 1 for Thalheimer, who spent a record $1 million of his own money while forcing Peters to a runoff election last time around, or in District 7 for Boling, who lost nearly 2-to-1 to McCarty and who also has handled accounting for many candidates, including former Mayor Dick Murphy.

The 3rd District race, on the other hand, has drawn heavy interest. Early contenders include Todd Gloria, an aide to Rep. Susan Davis, D-San Diego; James Hartline, a self-described Christian activist; Hartley, a councilman from 1989 to 1993; and Rocky Neptun, director of the San Diego Renters Union.

It Is Time To Overcome The Madness In Our City!

It Is Time To Stop The Madness In Our City!

Our city's constant mismanagement of expenditures on consultants and more consultants....and more consultants.................and more consultants.

Well, the taxpayers of this city are tired beyond fatigue, of having our city councilmembers vote to spend more public funds on more consultants who never do their job with the original contractual agreements. Take for example the recent debacle as described in the San Diego Union Tribune by Jennifer Vigil:
Council OKs spending increase for pension expert -
May 2, 2007 - SAN DIEGO – Divided San Diego City Council members approved a $400,000 boost in spending yesterday for an expert hired by Mayor Jerry Sanders, though they chided Sanders and City Attorney Michael Aguirre for dramatically exceeding the original value of the deal.

The contract, with a pension specialist, was to be worth a little more than $200,000, but San Diego's chief financial officer, Jay Goldstone, told the council the city owes $618,000. Goldstone also sought more money to continue working with the expert.

What is the problem?

Our elected officials seem to forget that they are pubic servants. When we serve the public, we don't raid the bank account of the hard working taxpayers who put their money into the hands of the city council to spend on the betterment of our city. The endless paying out of millions upon millions of dollars to "consultants" who act more like prostitutes then they do public servants is a political and ethical abomination.

The solution begins with one simple premise. City Councilmembers must have strong ethical components to a strong moral foundation. Refusing to address one's own lack of morality, is at the heart of why our current city council continues to make decisions that rip off the hard working citizens of San Diego.

Good financial decisions are the result of strong moral convictions. Refusing to address the immorality in our city, as this city council has refused to do, is at the very core of why the constant financial missteps are a daily occurrence. You cannot leave out truth in one's own life and expect truth to prevail in one's public decisionmaking.

Take for example in City Council District 3: Toni Atkins, has been the city council representative for over six years. What was her previous job before she came to work at the city council office of Christine Kehoe and eventually became a city councilwoman herself? She managed abortion clinics. That was her job! And look at the constant corruption scandals that have surrounded Councilwoman Atkins since she has been on the city council. Her name has repeatedly been associated with pension scandal decisions. Councilwoman Atkins also took campaign contributions from those who were associated with the Cheetah's Bribery Scandal that cost three councilmembers their careers and one, sadly, died before going to trial.

It gets worse with this woman. Take for example, the gay pride scandal in 2005. When it was discovered that multiple sex offenders were working for the San Diego Gay Pride organization, including one pedophile who was hired to work as a clown in the children's garden, Councilwoman Atkins was encouraging families to still participate in the event: without any of the sex offenders having been removed from their jobs at that point!

While Councilwoman Atkins has been helping to build up the downtown redevelopment industry, the streets and businesses in her own district have been neglected over and over again. Crime is rampant in her district, yet Atkins continues to parade herself at city hall as an effective downtown leader. When members of her own district expressed outrage over the development of a massive building project on University Ave., Atkins sided with redevelopers and approved the project. Simply put, Councilwoman Atkins is out of touch with the vast majority of voters and hard working taxpayers in her district. And the current crop of Democratic replacement candidates for the District 3 race are all good friends of Atkins. More of the same foolish and troubling waste of the voters' time and energy!

We voters must step out and break from the current political destruction that is eroding District 3. Our District must become more than just a factory to turn out one-issue candidates. Voters need more than a city councilmember whose main platform is promoting homosexuality and lesbianism. We cannot continue to allow our council district to make that issue the main reason we elect people. Our district is breaking down because certain political powerbrokers are only concerned with the promotion of homosexuality. Everything else is a side dish for them.

I am going to fight for our people! We will no longer stand by and allow a few elite, money-hungry, power-grabbing, political hacks to control our district and our destinies.

Watch Out! James Hartline, our district's watchman on the wall, is rising up to contend for his people in District 3. I am the people's man! And I will never stop fighting for all of our district voters to have a place at city hall. James will make sure that kids are always protected. District 3 is home to hundreds of registered pedophiles and dangerous sex offenders. Moms and Dads must be alerted as to where these terrible individuals are located so that their kids are always safe. I have been at the forefront in our city and district during the last four years to stop pedophiles from harming our kids.

Our district's moms must always have the help they need during their pregnancies. The idea that our city council continues to spend millions of dollars on "consultants" while medical clinics cannot provide necessary medical care to uninsured pregnant mothers is a personification of moral bankruptcy.

There should not be one person fighting with HIV who is left homeless on the streets of Hillcrest. Hillcrest is home to many of the medical clinics that treat HIV/AIDS patients. That is why many HIV patients are attracted to the area. Yet, during Councilwoman Atkins' watch, Hillcrest has seen a steady increase of homeless HIV-infected men and women living on the streets. Many are alcoholics and drug addicts. Many buy their illegal drugs and alcohol in Hillcrest and North Park. As the district's councilman, I will work to make sure that there is new and affordable housing for every man, woman and child who is fighting HIV and AIDS. I will not tolerate leaving those who are sick to face a fearful future of dying on the streets of Hillcrest.

Liquor Stores in our district that continue to sell liquor to homeless drunks, who then go on to assault our citizens, must be held accountable! Our district's citizens deserve clean and safe streets. Those that are contributing to public drunkeness, rapes and robberies, will not be tolerated. Liquor stores must pay for the public drunkeness they are creating. All liquor stores should abide by a covenent with the city to stop selling individual bottles of beer to homeless drunks. A city wide order for liquor stores to sell only six packs of beer will stop most of the homeless drunks from purchasing alcohol. This will create an immediate effect on the public drunkeness problem in our district and city. In turn, this will lessen the burden on our police officers who must spend a tremendous amount of their time contending with drunks rather than protecting our society from more serious criminals.

Our district must become a place where new, small businesses are both welcomed and prospered. We need the jobs for our people. There should never be undue tax burdens and skyrocketing rent placed upon the hopes and dreams of new business owners. Our district council representative must partner with a concept of encouraging business investment in the communities, rather than businesses moving out into the mega-shopping malls. Many storefronts in Hillcrest have been shuttered for years. Skyrocketing rents must not be the reason businesses move out of the area. Greed must be addressed. We cannot continue to be a culture that negates compassion for our younger generation who have the hope of starting a small business, only to see that hope shattered because of the greed of property owners.

Renters should not live with the constant fear that they will be forced into homelessness because of skyrocketing rents. Gas prices should not force moms to leave their kids at home because they cannot afford transportation. It is time that landlords and oil companies take a fresh approach to how they treat our people. We must reintroduce the concept of mercy and compassion when it comes to how overburdened families are treated in our city.

I know what it is like to be in poverty. I know what it is like to suffer. I have great empathy with those who are suffering in our culture. The problem with most elected officials is they don't understand the people who live in their respective districts. In reality, they have little, if anything, in common with the voters. I intend to change all of that! I fight for kids and moms and dads who want a better life for their families. I understand your difficulties for I have faced those same difficulties myself. And I have overcome those difficulties. Our citizens are looking for overcomers with fresh ideas and news ideals.

We don't need more millionaires at city hall. We don't need more greedy councilmembers at city hall. We don't need more corruption and bureaucratic madness at city hall. We don't need more anti-christian bigotry at city hall. What we need is a man who stands with the people because he is an overcomer. I am that man. I am James Hartline and I will not forget the people that have elected me to fight for them at city hall. Together we will overcome everything that is fighting against us to have a say in our own future!

Media Outlets Are Buzzing As Hartline Campaign Takes San Diego By Storm

Within 48 hours of announcing that he is a candidate for the San Diego City Council, James Hartline's announced candidacy has become a big news story in many media outlets in San Diego, California.

For sixteen years, District 3 has been controlled by a small group of gay elites who have dictated the political discourse and agenda of the area's citizens. Hartline's campaign is already demonstrating that these apathetic, self-centered elites, are concerned that finally someone is rising up to battle and defeat this special interest agenda.

Homosexual News wires throughout San Diego are going haywire over the Hartline candidacy.

Hartline's candidacy is the number one news story on Cox Communications local news list:

The Gay and Lesbian Times is running a full page editorial devoted to James and the threat he poses to the District's elites:

And San Diego homosexual activist Nicole Murray Ramirez says that Hartline's candidacy could cause trouble in the district 3 race.

There has not been this much news this early on in a district three council seat race in at least sixteen years. Finally, the people of District 3 have a man who is not afraid to confront the district's corrupt leaders. James will fight for all of the district's disadvantaged citizens and he will stand fast against the current corrupt agenda that is determined to remain in power regardless of whom they may harm.

News was not limited to San Diego's gay community. The North County Times beat them to the punch when it came to Team Hartline jumping into the battle to reclaim District 3 and return it into the hands of the people:
"Christian Activist To Run For San Diego City Council"
SAN DIEGO - A self-described Christian activist sent out fliers Wednesday announcing his candidacy for City Council.James Hartline, founder of California Christian News, will be running for Council District 3, which is currently represented by Toni Atkins and includes North Park, Hillcrest and City Heights.
Atkins will have to give up her seat after next year's elections because of term limits.
Hartline described the district as being "controlled in recent years by a small group of special interest gays and lesbians."Stephen Whitburn, American Red Cross spokesman in San Diego, filed papers with the City Clerk yesterday to run for the seat.Hartline said his campaign staff will include notable conservatives including analyst Beverly Wyer, attorney Robert Sutton, financial investor Chuck Stout and former Assembly candidate Kim Tran."District 3 is home to dozens of large churches and thousands of Christian voters, but in the last 14 years, the concerns of those voters has been largely ignored by City Hall," he said.

Team Hartline is Underway:
Ronnie Fanucchi will be treasurer of Team Hartline.
Robert Sutton will be the senior attorney for Team Hartline.
Kim Tran will be a district representative.
Beverly Wyer will be Team Hartline's representative on Senior concerns.
Chuck Stout will be Team Hartline's advisor on Immigration Issues.
Lenora Souza and Loretta Peer will be heading Team Hartline's Prayer Team.

James is already forming his financial team and campaign contributions are being accepted. He has already begun to assemble his media team, various district representatives, as well as a large district team composed of many of his great friends in a multitude of great churches.

Never again will District 3 allow itself to be hijacked by the kind of special interest, careless do-nothings that have ruled our district for the past 16 years. We are on the move. We are ready for the battle. We will accept nothing but victory and victory we shall obtain! We are not moved by the bigotry of our opponents' low expectations. And we will not be deterred by the mockery of the special interests of the current rotten crop that has dominated district politics for nearly two decades.

"To my many Christian brothers and sisters in District 3: Get out your brooms, it is time to sweep out the moral rot that has polluted and ruined our beautiful San Diego!" James Hartline

James Hartline Campaign For City Council Already Heating Up!

James Hartline Campaign Already Heating Up!
Never again will San Diegans and District 3 residents be treated like 2nd class nobodies by the power elites at city hall.

You can listen to James on KPRZ, 1210am, this Saturday, June 9, 2007 at 1pm.
You can listen on your radio, San Diego, 1210am KPRZ or on your internet stream at He will be a guest on the Start Me up Program and Set Free Ministries.

James Hartline and his team will be fighting for every citizen in San Diego and especially District 3 to always have their concerns heard, addressed and resolved at city hall. For too long, elected officials have treated all us as if we are a vote and nothing more. The streets of Hillcrest and North Park are full of crime, shuttered businesses, street prostitution, drug addiction and homelessness. Homeowners are disrespected at city hall. Powerful redevelopers are destroying Hillcrest and not replacing any of the disenfranchised apartment renters with alternative housing sites. There is more to be concerned about in District 3 than the apathetic, do nothing agenda of the last 16 years of Kehoe and Atkins.

District 3 Voters want and deserve help now!

Our district's problems are the result of a small group of gay elites who have made District Three a one-issue area. Seniors have been ignored. On the corner of University Ave. and Park Blvd. there are three major senior highrises housing hundreds of seniors. Yet, in sixteen years, not one senior feeding center has been established near these buildings. These hard-working and devoted seniors must travel over two miles to get to their senior center for discounted meals. Some of these seniors are over ninety years of age. What has Councilwoman Toni Atkins done for these precious seniors in the past eight years: She has allowed a xxx porn store called the Crypt to be located across the street at a public bus stop, rather than a senior center. Doesn't that say it all about this radical regime that has been controlling District 3 for the last sixteen years?

Hillcrest businessowners have been overtaxed and forced out of business by out-of-control, skyrocketing rental rates in the area. Many storefronts in Hillcrest have remained vacant for years on Toni Atkins' watch, while she has repeatedly been involved in supporting massive building projects outside of her district.

Drug addicts have overdosed in businesses in Hillcrest. More men have gotten infected with HIV, while destructive gay bathhouses continue to remain open in District 3. Child molesters are on the loose on the streets of District 3. These are the fruits of a rotten root that has controlled District 3 for far-too-long!

James Hartline now rises up to face these troubles head-on and they will be resolved.

Today, James filed his Form 501 with the San Diego City Clerk. He is an official candidate for the San Diego City Council. Everyone of his opponents will be challenged on whether they have really demonstrated a record for protecting the children of District 3. Two of the major Democratic opponents in the District 3 race have been involved in the San Diego Gay Pride Parade where children were exposed to xxx gay pornography businesses. Parents are fed up with these types of political hacks who really care nothing about protecting our youngest societal members.

I plan to fight for the kids of San Diego. I plan to stand up for the seniors of District 3. We will get more schools and rehabilitation programs and less porn stores. I will demand that the city allow for good steady business development and jobs in our district, but these redevelopers must help out with low-income housing production. We all, the wealthy and the poor, must strike a fair balance in our district.

One of my first acts will be to call for a series of summits in our city. One will be devoted to resolving the homeless problem in our city. A second will be devoted to resolving our critical housing shortage. A third will be devoted to resolving the police officer shortage and pay increase delays. A Fourth will be devoted to securing our borders and establishing a secure method of determining a resolution for the illegal immigrant workers in San Diego.

Let me hear what your concerns are at

What Are They Saying About James Hartline's Candidacy For The San Diego City Council:

What They're Saying About The James Hartline Candidacy in the last 24 hours:

June 5, 2007
The Voice of San Diego, one of San Diego's best local news websites:
"Hartline to Run in Third"
Add conservative Christian activist James Hartline to the list of potential candidates for the District 3 City Council seat in 2008.
Hartline publishes an online newsletter railing against prostitution, homosexuality and drug use in the city's uptown neighborhoods. You can read an extensive profile San Diego CityBeat published in 2005. Hartline is a Republican.
Other candidates in District 3 include Todd Gloria, John Hartley, Robert E. Lee, Rocky Neptun and Stephen Whitburn. You can read more about them here.

Hillquest, a San Diego gay website that monitors the local activism of James via their James Hartline Watch:
June 2007
2008 Election
James Hartline decides to throw his hat into ring for the upcoming District 3 City Council seat.

Pam's House Blend, a nationally-recognized lesbian website posted this review of Hartline's candidacy:
From Autumn Sandeen:
I read ex-gay James Hartline's blog about once a week. Sometimes it's entertaining (such as his glaring grammar mistake of using "their" instead of using "they're" in the quote in my headline above), sometimes he has a valid point to make, but more often than not he seems to write unhinged diatribes.
I've seen him speak at San Diego City Council meetings. His viewpoints are just about uniformly opposite to mine, but he doesn't sound unhinged when he speaks. And, he's had some successes in shutting down LGBT events -- like 2005's Ebony Pride event -- and he's the one who did the digging to find out that there were registered sex offenders in places of leadership in the 2005 San Diego Pride organization. The San Diego Pride organization was completely reorganized as a result. And, volunteers are now all subject to background checks, which wasn't the case previously.

San Diego City Beat, a local San Diego Alternative Newspaper:
James Hartline running for District 3June 5th, 2007 — Eric Wolff
Virulent anti-gay activist, Christian Conservative, and “ex-gay” James Hartline has decided to stir up the pot in District 3 with his own run for City Council.
Hartline is a Republican who considers homosexuality (and porn and overly revealing clothing) an abomination. He made a splash in 2005 when he revealed in his newsletter that two volunteers working the annual Gay Pride Parade were registered sex offenders. His entrance into the District 3 race, of all races, should be entertaining at the least.

From Loretta in San Diego:
"Praise God! James I knew you would be running. I prayed that God would put you in that position on the last meeting at the city council. When I was there, the Lord had me praying over the council the whole time there. As I was praying I knew the Lord has me assigned to you to help you get into your position. "

From Beth in San Diego:
"Good move, James. May God bless you richly as you step to the forefront.You are in my prayers."

From Pastor Jack in San Diego:
"WOW!!! You go!"

From Vida in San Diego County:
"I am soooo sorry that I am not in your district. I would vote for you Sweety.
Love ya, Vida"

From Victoria in San Diego:
"Congratulations James! That’s great news."

From Campaign Supporter and San Diegan, Gina:
"Awesome! You have my vote, and I will surely campaign for more votes for you. We have been praying to have Godly people in authority, and now is the time for us to arise out of our sleep and possess this territory. Be blessed! "

From Cate, a James Hartline supporter:
"I suspect San Diego is about to be turned on her ear. Thank God. I am behind you 100 percent. May God bless you. You will be in my prayers. I am sure you'll be in plenty of other people's prayers as well. And you'll need them! The dark is never as vicious as when threatened. Like I have to tell you this.
Love in Christ, Cate"

From Evie, a long time James Hartline supporter:
"YOU GO JAMES! This will need major prayer - God is good - how he brings things around when we are diligent and obedient."

From San Diegan Joyce:
"James, I am so moved by your video! I hope others will be too. I will be forwarding this to various Christian friends and I will keep you in prayer for this election campaign and candidacy.
Yours in Jesus, Joyce"

San Diegan Marianne says:
"THANK YOU !!! Marianne"

San Diego District 3 Mom and Voter Jennie says:
"The Lord be with you... I hope you win.

San Diego businesswoman Martha says:
