THE recent decision by Governor Torres to terminate Special Assistant for Management and Budget Virginia "Vicky" Villagomez is just more proof for me and thousands of voters of the alleged Godfather imaged in the FBI’s RICO Investigation. This woman has been at her post since 1998 under different Governors but the moment she decides to support Arnold & Dave she is FIRED, without cause. The Governor claims he is “protecting the integrity of the Budget Office” as if WE the People are supposed to believe him which is why I keep telling readers & voters that he really thinks he can tell us anything and that WE the People are stupid and can’t see through his gaslighting smoke screen. But this is HOW the Republican Party has operated EVER-SINCE as Locals might say which is why most of us are not surprised at all.

I don’t have anything against Ms. Villagomez even though I detest the Political Reangling and manipulation of her publicly known close friend Mr. Clyde Norita.  In fact, I truly believe it was Mr. Norita’s decision to support Arnold & Dave in an attempt to salvage HIS Political Clout that led to her termination. Everyone is jumping-off the Torres Bandwagon for the Arnold & Dave Bandwagon but it is coming at a cost because neither Torres nor Arnold will win in 2022. 

Ms. Villagomez is the THIRD person I know of for TRUE that has been terminated by this Governor for not joining the Republican Bandwagon and the other two are now Elected Officials in the Democrat Party!   But this is how the Republican Party has ALWAYS operated which is why it is no secret and even common knowledge in the CNMI that “you have to be in good with these Republicans if you want a job in the administration, especially at a high level.”  Voters really messed-up giving Governor Torres ALL POWER with Republicans in control of the House of Representatives, the Senate and the Executive Office. The saying of “power corrupts and absolute power ABSOLUTELY CORRUPTS” is ringing TRUE and LOUD now and I just pray for the sake of our Commonwealth that voters won’t make that mistake in the coming election. I feel confident that voters will give the Democrats control of our government but you can never tell who is buying all this “deflecting, gaslighting and even lies” being spouted by this Governor and Arnold who KNEW Better and did nothing. Now Arnold wants us to trust him to restore TRUST, which tells me Arnold thinks we are stupid too just like the Governor.

I feel sorry for Ms. Villagomez because she should have played it SMART and just stayed-out of the political arena as she may have surely regained her post under the next administration that regardless of who one because she was obviously doing a good or even great job to have lasted this long.  But that’s politics for you which is why I’m telling the people working in the Government to just “join the silent majority to avoid the raft of this Governor and vote him out and vote Democrats in come 2022.”  This recent firing is proof of what can happen if you go public and join the Arnold & Dave Bandwagon. 

WE the People can already expect to see people like Paduna, Clyde Norita and others trying to get voters to jump on the Arnold & Dave Bandwagon that is going NOWHERE! How much does voters need to see before they are convinced to vote an entirely Democrat Ticket is unknown but it should be getting close to that point after the recent firing episode by our alleged Godfather.
