Trump supporters hold rally in Valencia

By Bill Reynolds

Last update: Sunday, March 26th, 2017

On Saturday, Gala Caprice Cruz, a member of SCV’s North Los Angeles County and Santa Clarita Women Federated Republican club, organized a rally that began at 10 a.m. and ended at noon on Valencia Boulevard near Creekside Road.

“I am starting a new club for North Los Angeles County to help provide a home for the grassroots Trump supporters that were active during his campaign,” Cruz said.

“Unlike the ‘top down’ directive structure we experienced during the election, this newly formed chapter of CA4MAGA (Californians for Making America Great Again) will be built from the bottom up with its members focusing on Trump’s agenda in California at all levels including city, county & state.”

The group plans to host more rallies, however, they also have plans to mobilize volunteers for activities related to voter registration, legislation, phone calling, and attending political events and forums.

The rally was attended by over 70 local, residents. Attendees ranging from different ages and backgrounds attended the rally.

Signs declaring “No Sanctuary Cities,” “Lower Taxes”,””Rebuild our Military,” “Make America Great Again,” “Build that Wall,” “Women 4 Trump,” “Secure our Border,” “We Want Legal Immigrants,” were held high on Saturday.

    Good thing Soros’ commies didn’t attack as they did in Huntington Beach, Philly, and elsewhere.

  • Starway2001

    Wall Street and the Russians have their backs! All… seven of them.

  • Dee Reilman

    The ”Rally” was to support the President, Law Enforcement & OUR TROOPS!! Finally, we’ll have Law & Order back in America…

    • Anthony Breznican

      You stand up for OUR TROOPS by cheering Trump? That’s comical.

      Remember this:

      “He’s not a war hero,” Trump said of McCain. “He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, okay?”

      • WEST M.Ed.

        You don;t know who our Commander in Chief is? What a hater. You must be one of those who violently attack those trying to assemble our hear a speech, right? And yes, McCain is a RINO.

  • LeeToo

    the dems are coming to the scv!

    • Ron Bischof

      Are they escaping the dysfunction in Los Angeles where their policies have wreaked destruction? Time to ruin SCV with regressive ideology?

  • Anthony Breznican

    Seventy people? Really? All the photos I’ve seen of this event are about 20-24 people. Maximum.

    • Bill Reynolds

      People came and in went… it’s difficult to obtain an accurate count with these things but the organizer said there were over 70 in total who participated. Where were you?

      • Anthony Breznican

        Difficult to count 70 people when there appear to be only a dozen or so? And you’re saying the event was only two hours long? But “70 people” schlepped out to the march and only hung around for a few minutes each before rotating out, which explains why no one saw more than a handful at a time? Uh huh. Okay. Or maybe the organizers lied to inflate their numbers.

        • Bill Reynolds

          Sounds like you’re just grumpy that so many pro Trump supporters turned out and had a great time while pleasing the vast majority of passing motorists.

          • Anthony Breznican

            Nope. Not bitter. Just think you are perhaps a biased reporter who is misrepresenting the numbers despite overwhelming photographic evidence. Your comments reveal you to be a partisan.

          • Bill Reynolds

            Those are are a few random photos that weren’t intended to validate the total number of people who randomly participated. If you had been there you would know how much fun they all had along with hundreds of passing motorists. But hey, feel free to use any number that makes you feel good.

          • Anthony Breznican

            It’s not about feeling good. It’s about telling the truth as a journalist. I’ve seen other photos from this rally and there are never more than 20 people at this event. Just tell the truth. It’s not hard.

          • Bill Reynolds

            You are wrong. If you were there you would know all about it.

          • Anthony Breznican

            If the person sent by the Signal to report on this had reported things accurately I WOULD know all about it. I’m a journalist myself, and have covered protests and rallies for The Associated Press and USA Today. This story of yours is malpractice.

          • Bill Reynolds

            This will be my last comment on this subject. Our Signal Newspaper covers both sides of the political spectrum which is why you will see two rallies in this morning’s newspaper on Page A6.. Neither photo shown reflects the total number of participation for each rally.

          • Anthony Breznican

            The point is — there weren’t 70 people at that Trump rally and you know it. Nowhere close.

          • gala caprice cruz

            WRONG…where do you get your info from? I was there…

          • Anthony Breznican

            I get it from the photos you posted to Facebook showing a tiny group of people trying to spread out to look large – like a pufferfish!

          • Dee Reilman

            You are guilty of ”slander” then… I was THERE…. AT LEAST 70 people came… One man counted 63 people when he checked…. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT before you spout off more LIES, please…. No wonder people don’t believe the ”LAPDOG MEDIA” with reporters like you… SAD, SAD, SAD!!

          • Anthony Breznican

            You Trumpsters really cling to a lie. Show me a photo with 63 people in it. Every photo posted by the organizers themselves show a tiny little group of about a quarter that size. Just tell the truth. That’s all that matters.

          • Dee Reilman

            Typical LIBERALS Bill…. I was there too…The ”Numbers” are NOT LIES!! I took pics & video as well….. The ”Liberals” wouldn’t know the TRUTH if it hit them in the face!! They believe in discrediting every Conservative…Pay NO MIND to these ”Low Information” stooges …

          • Anthony Breznican

            The truth clearly hurts. Tell me, how do you rationalize your support for a draft dodger like Trump given how important youbsay veterans are? That guy literally lied about bone spurs in his feet to dodge Vietnam but there are many photographs of him playing sports during that same time. Doesn’t that hypocrisy bother you?

        • gala caprice cruz

          Why are we arguing over numbers? I AM THE ORGANIZER, had a clip board & signed in 60 people while there were some that came and joined us off the street that did not want to sign in. We were very spread out around the corner which may have made it seem like less people. Most people were there for the last hour/half hour. We had about 30 people come over to Topper’s after the event. Bill Reynolds is a great American patriot as are the rest of the Trump supporters who were there to participate, show love of country & spread a positive message for our President!

          • Anthony Breznican

            And we all know Trump supporters would never lie about something as obvious as crowd size!

          • gala caprice cruz

            Don’t need to lie, except maybe lie down after listening to this whining.

          • Anthony Breznican

            I’m with you. It’s exhausting keeping up with Trump’s scandals and failures.

      • Mike Devlin

        Bill, Bill, Bill. Just how did you trick The Signal into letting you report on a rally that you also participated in?

        • Anthony Breznican

          Hold up … He was a participant?

          • Mike Devlin

            Yep. His comment yesterday: “I was there and it was fun! The vast majority of passing motorists were supportive; only two vulgar young female liberals flipped us and shouted the F word. What’s up with liberal females being so crude?”
            Me: Bill, your article in The Signal didn’t mention that you were also a participant.
            Bill: So what?

          • gala caprice cruz

            Ditto. Folks are free to participate in anything they want that is not illegal or criminal. Get a life, move on and focus on something POSITIVE. Ugh!

    • gala caprice cruz

      Next time come join us and you can TAKE YOUR OWN COUNT during the 2 hours.

      • Anthony Breznican

        Thanks for he invitation, but I’m an American and I’m a patriot. I don’t roll with people who blindly support Putin’s puppet.

        • WEST M.Ed.

          You sound more like a supporter of mass murdering of sovereign leaders like Qaddafi to “nation build”, arming terrorists as in Syria, selling of rare resources like Uranium to the Russians, using taxpayer dollars to throw an election in Israel, cheating on debate questions like Hillary, and refusing to attend the unification ceremonies to UNITE as a nation — a lover of division like CALExit. You sir are NOT a patriot, but a traitor and a blind supporter of the bureaucratic party oligarchy enriching their Wall Street pockets by a debtor nation spiraling out of control, The rest of us want our government, ran BY THE PEOPLE to indeed find world peace and make friends of all nations. You have forgotten the days of Apollo-Soyuz mission and Détente. It is no wonder you represent the flag burners, anarchists, and race wars of BLM. you want to see harm to our country for your selfish political egos. We are back on track to MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN and your Dark Resistance is bringing about the dynasty we all so need!

    • Ron Bischof

      “Seventy people? Really? All the photos I’ve seen of this event are about 20-24 people.”

      Please advise how a cumulative total over a time period as represented by witnesses present is negated by your review of snapshot-in-the-moment photos of an event you didn’t attend, Mr. Breznican.

      • Anthony Breznican

        Please explain the logic of 70 people cycling rapidly through a two-hour event in which no one captured an image of more than 20 people, Ronny. There’s a mountain of photos from throughout the “rally.” They’re the same dozen or so people. Stop making excuses.

        • Ron Bischof

          That’s not how logic or evidence works, Mr. Breznician. Your hearsay is disputing events as represented by multiple eyewitnesses. You made an assertion and the burden of proof lies with you and no other.

          Your risible amateur grade antics won’t suffice with anyone competent in debate.

          Why don’t you behave decently and stop trolling these folks participating in free speech?

    What a turnout! Anybody with critical thinking skills can discern that Trump is a LIAR who lies ALL THE TIME. What is wrong with the cognitive parts of Trump supporter’s brains? Mexico isn’t paying for the wall, Obama did not Wiretap Trump,EVERYBODY knew Healthcare was complicated,42 million people are not unemployed,Crime is not at an all time high,Trump did NOT win with the biggest electoral margin since Reagan,3-5 million illegals did NOT vote in the election,and Russians met with a LOT of Trump team people. What does it take to discern the truth??

  • gala caprice cruz

    HELLO to all with the doubt on the number count. I AM SORRY TO SPILL IT TO YOU BUT it’s not about the numbers anyways…it’s about our messages. These accusations for Bill are dumb-founded. I could get these rallies to be bigger, but then all that would be in the news is the number of protesters who showed up or got violent, instead of our positive message of support. It’s about keeping it safe for supporters and the public…letting them know that there is a peaceful side to politics and crying, kicking, screaming or getting violent and spreading hate will not prevail in the end.

  • WEST M.Ed.

    Mr. Reynolds and Gala, it is nice to hear fair reporting that simply is mentioning the facts. This was a very nice addition, “Signs declaring “No Sanctuary Cities,” “Lower Taxes”,””Rebuild our Military,” “Make America Great Again,” “Build that Wall,” “Women 4 Trump,” “Secure our Border,” “We Want Legal Immigrants,” —-it shows the ISSUES that the opposition refuses to talk about. Heck, even the democrats know their leaders are out of control! They would not let Bernie run, and now they are shoving higher taxes on the highest taxed state to pay for the sanctuary cities and entitled programs for the non-citizens while our homeless families and vets do without. Campaigning on taxpayer paid time! Indeed a corrupt government!
