Editors note: I can’t go 7 days without Gina Clayton-Tarvin engaging in some ridiculous antics that suck me back in and compel me to document it. She’s starting to remind me of Lucille Ball in ” I Love Lucy”.
I’m actually beginning to think that Gina Clayton- Tarvin is attempting to wear me down, through attrition, in the hopes that I will be so overwhelmed, that I will simply throw in the towel and move on to new subject matter.
But watching her shoot herself in the foot repeatedly, is a fascinating exercise in mental masochism that never seems to get old, in all it’s fascinating glory.
Some people have no shame.
In the interest of advancing their political careers and agendas, some have proven willing to invoke the dead and fabricate complete falsehoods.
One such individual is… you guessed it…Ocean View School District Trustee,
Tarvin has established an ongoing pattern of invoking drama and falsifying claims, in order to bring attention to herself and her causes.
She accused a citizen of “false imprisonment”, a felony, for asking her a question at a public event. She makes false claims of “death threats” against her. She wastes tax dollars on a personal armed guard at school board meetings, because she doesn’t like being criticized during public comments.
This episode, of what is known derisively by the local residents as “The Gina Show”, however, rises to the level of such outrageous disgrace,, that it will probably be impossible for even Tarvin herself, to ever match.
At 2:19 PM on February 14th, 2018, Nikolas Cruz pulled an AR series semi automatic rifle out of a black bag and began shooting students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
By the time he finished, 17 people, mainly kids, were dead or dying.
Like most mass shooters, Cruz was mentally ill.
The failures of law enforcement to act on numerous tips and the cowardly failure to respond at the actual scene of the crime while the incident was occurring, will go down in history as one of the single biggest failures of those entrusted with maintaining law and order in American history.
Yet the gun control lobby, and their supporters, like Gina Clayton-Tarvin, refused to acknowledge the complicity of those who failed these kids, and used the tragedy as yet another excuse to stand on the backs of the dead, and demand strict gun control.
On February 19th, Gina Clayton-Tarvin staged a rally at a park near Huntington Beach High School, in Huntington Beach, California.
She wasted no time in assembling a cadre of like minded social justice warriors and prop children ( including her own), in order to capitalize on the recent tragedy, and invited local broadcaster, KTLA to cover the event.
Tarvin loves media coverage and covets the face time.
Clayton – Tarvin was assisted by pro illegal immigration activists, Victor Valladares, a man whose history of criminal activity, and violence is now well documented, and Oscar Rodriguez, who held the same bullhorn that Mr. Valladares used, when he stuck it in the ear of Pro-American activists that he referred to as “racists” and “vendida’s”, at a PRO- DACA rally conducted during school hours at Ocean View High School, also in Huntington Beach.
Channeling her best Hillary Clinton, “landing under sniper fire,”
Clayton-Tarvin made the claim on camera that;
” I have laid down on the floor with my students for lock downs too many times in my career. I have huddled on the ground holding my breath in silence, lights out, with my heart pounding with 35 scared kids because there was a gunman on campus. This is real.It has happened to me……”
At 2:47 in, Tarvin makes the statement that she is present at this event, not as a concerned private citizen, but as an elected trustee of the Ocean View School District.
At the 3:50 mark, she describes her “Terrifying” encounter with lurking gunmen.
On February 21, 2018, Clayton-Tarvin proceeded to double down and issued the following statement on Social Media reiterating her breathless claims;
Theres only one problem with Gina Clayton-Tarvin’s breathless statement regarding lying scared on the floor while a gunman lurked nearby…
None of it appears to be true.
In order to attempt to verify Tarvin’s claims, I first scoured Lexis Nexis and Google for any mention of a gunman on a campus of the ABC Unified School District.
Tarvin works in the ABC School District, which encompasses parts of Artesia, Bellflower, Lakewood, Hawaiian Gardens and Cerritos. The Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department services the district boundaries from both the Lakewood and Cerritos Sheriffs substations.
I contacted both sheriffs agencies. After brief holds, I was connected to the crime analysts that work out of both facilities.
I inquired if in fact there had been any incidents in the past, where their agencies had responded to a report of a gunman on an occupied campus of the ABC School District.
“No sir, we have no records of that occurring.”
Tarvin’s online bio indicates she has worked at only 2 locations within the ABC school district. Fedde Middle School and Cerritos elementary. My research assistant posed as a new resident who was considering enrolling children in Fedde and Cerritos and placed calls to both locations. She posed the same question I asked the Law enforcement agencies.
She received the same reply: ” No ma’am, we have no history of that occurring on campus.”
Finally, in the interest of fairness, I sent email messages to Gina Clayton- Tarvin and asked her to substantiate her claims.
Gina Clayton-Tarvin never responded.
The only logical conclusion I can draw, is that she is a blatant liar and these incidents simply never occurred.
CPRA requests have been filed with ABC School District to request the records of any such incident.
However, Gina Clayton-Tarvin has friends in high places at ABC Unified School District and something tells me an attempt will be made to stonewall the request, so that she can maintain some form of plausible deniability.
That fact that she was willing to make events up out of whole cloth, with absolutely no thought to the despicable misappropriation of the legacies of the dead kids in Florida, speaks volumes about her character.
Anybody so callous,and blindly ambitious, is dangerous.
Note: In the video posted above, at the 6:23 mark, Clayton-Tarvin encourages those present to engage in a ” school walkout” scheduled for April 20th, 2018.
The adults that work behind the scenes organizing these events, know full well, that the kids will be more than happy to walkout of school, when sanctioned by the adult manipulators.
You could get hundreds of kids to walkout of school, to protest the loss of a Slurpee flavor or cancellation of a TV show, as long as the adults sanction the actions.
This is hardly appropriate, for a School Board Trustee, to encourage Kids to “Walkout” of school, in support of her political agenda.
No doubt OVSD district parents can and will retaliate, by organizing a day off for their children on April 20th, 2018, costing the district tons of money in lost payments for students not in their seats.
OVSD parents can take their kids to the beach or Disneyland on April 20th, and send a powerful message to the district that their children are not to be indoctrinated, manipulated nor used as props and pawns by adults pushing a progressive agenda.
Postscript: I received the following confirmation from Mary Sieu, the Administrator at Tarvin’s current school today. We intend to follow this to its logical conclusion.
