|A typically modest event at Tom Phillips' estate|
Nothing new there. But Calle does provide some info about Tom’s son, TJ:
Tom Phillips, eh? The two Toms are affiliated with the conservative think tank Claremont Institute. Further, as we’ve reported previously:
T.J. Fuentes is running for a spot on the county GOP central committee and has already become an activist in such groups as the Orange County Young Republicans. He also is chief of staff to conservative publishing magnate Tom Phillips, one of his father's best friends.
Ultra-conservative publisher Tom L. Phillips ... founded and serves on the Board of Directors of Eagle Publishing, which owns the notorious Regnery Publishing. [Tom] Fuentes is one of four “external directors” of Eagle Publishing.It is rumored that TJ is interested in taking Tom’s spot on the SOCCCD Board of Trustees. Indeed, at the May meeting of the SOCCCD BOT, as I recall, Board Prez Nancy Padberg noted that one of Tom’s “relatives” is interested in that office.
Among Regnery authors are Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham, Newt Gingrich, Ann Coulter, Dinesh D'Souza, and Ted Nugent.
