Question:  "Separation between Church and State."  Who coined the Phrase?  Give up?  Answer:   Thomas Jefferson - one of the founding fathers of this great Nation and a creator of the U.S. Constitution and the First Amendment to that same Constitution.  Thomas Jefferson, in 1802, wrote a Letter to the Danbury Baptist Association, referring to the First Amendment to the US Constitution.  In it he said:

"To messers. Nehemiah Dodge, Ephraim Robbins, & Stephen S. Nelson, a committee of the Danbury Baptist association in the state of Connecticut.


"The affectionate sentiments of esteem and approbation which you are so good as to express towards me, on behalf of the Danbury Baptist association, give me the highest satisfaction. my duties dictate a faithful and zealous pursuit of the interests of my constituents, & in proportion as they are persuaded of my fidelity to those duties, the discharge of them becomes more and more pleasing.

"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between Church & State. Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.

"I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection & blessing of the common father and creator of man, and tender you for yourselves & your religious association, assurances of my high respect & esteem."

Th Jefferson

Extremist (Tea Party) Republicans are selfish, power hungry, hateful of the poor, disloyal to the nation and its people, dishonest, avaricious, scornful of the nation's history, the dignity of its institutions, its standards of political morality, and its vision of advancement for all the people. The Republicans love war as long as they and theirs do not have to put on helmets and carry guns into the fighting. They use lies to start wars that kill hundreds of thousands of innocents and thousands of our own military service people. They love massive war-time profits, unavailable to their rich masters if war is absent.

Those Extremist Republicans hate the rest of us, which they must, in order to pass away from themselves and onto us, the financial burdens and losses their crimes, schemes and thefts cause. They are prolific, incessant, and destructive liars. They are blasphemers for they insist that their hateful and destructive deeds are the work of God. They are apostates for they gleefully attack the poor, the immigrants, the old and the sick, of whom God has commanded all of us to be mindful.

There is no reasoning with them, for all their logic is built on false premises. There is no appealing to them for honor's sake for they have lost all sense of shame and have no honor, there is no appealing to them for the nation's sake for that it what they hate the most.

Extremist (Tea Party) Republicans are the enemy.

Representative Ken Calvert (R-CA) is a nine-term member of Congress, representing California’s 44th congressional district. Rep. Calvert’s ethics issues stem from (1) his use of earmarks for personal gain; (2) his illegal land purchase; and, (3) his connections to a lobbying firm under investigation. Rep. Calvert was included in CREW’s 2006, 2007, and 2008 reports on congressional corruption.

Ken Calvert has always supported a Conservative Christian position especially when it comes to Church and State issues.  It is apparent from the data collected, that the first amendment may be in danger from his past and future actions.

Upon calling his office and asking about the Ken's religion of choice, we find that Wicca, Shintoism, Islam, and everything except Christianity "..aren't "Real" religions."  What is a real religion, Mr. Calvert?  What you have been practicing?  Read the following and remember: "By their Works may they be known."

(Remember it is best to investigate on your own when looking at allegations about anyone.    Don't believe us, think for yourself and investigate for yourself!  And remember, the First Amendment Coalition does not represent any political party nor do we recommend any political candidate, nor are we involving ourselves in the political process. 

Early Life and Education

Kenneth Stanton (Ken) Calvert (born June 8, 1953), an American politician, has been a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives since 1993, representing California's 44th congressional district. The district is part of the Inland Empire and south Orange County areas of Southern California.

Calvert was born in Corona, California to Marceline Hamblen and Ira D. Calvert, Jr., and still lives in Corona. In 1970, shortly after high school, he joined the campaigns of former state legislator Victor Veysey. Calvert worked in Veysey's Washington, D.C., office as an intern after a 1972 victory.

Calvert received an associate of arts degree from Chaffey Community College in 1973 and a bachelors of arts degree San Diego State University in 1975. After graduation, he managed his family's restaurant, the Jolly Fox, in Corona for five years. He then entered the real estate industry and ran Ken Calvert Real Properties until he was elected.

Congressional Career


In 1982, the 29 year old Calvert ran for the United States House of Representatives to represent a newly drawn district. He narrowly lost the Republican primary to Riverside County Supervisor Al McCandless, who had been the choice of the Republican establishment. McCandless went on to win the general election.

Calvert was first elected to the House in 1992, when McCandless was re-elected in a different district. Calvert won the general election with 47% of the vote (a plurality, but he was the highest vote-getter), defeating Democrat Mark A. Takano by 519 votes. In 1994, he was challenged in the Republican primary by Joe Khoury and won renomination by only 51% to 49%. He was re-elected in the 1994 general election with 55 percent, again defeating Takano.

In 1996, he was re-elected with 54 percent of the vote, defeating Democrat Guy Kimbrough. In 1998 he defeated Democrat Mike Rayburn with 55 percent of the vote. Calvert won again in 2000 with 74 percent of the vote, facing no major-party opposition.

Calvert was re-elected in 2002, defeating Louis Vandenberg with 64 percent of the vote. He defeated Vandenberg again in 2004 with 61 percent of the vote. Vandenberg, a college administrator, was again Calvert's opponent in the November 2006 election. Calvert won with 59.6 percent of the vote; Vandenburg got 37.5 percent.

In 2008, he had a surprisingly close race. He ran against Democratic candidate Bill Hedrick, receiving 51.8% of the vote. Calvert declared victory immediately, but Hedrick waited three weeks before conceding, due to higher than normal turnout prolonging the vote-counting process.

Real estate investments

A map of Calvert's recent real estate holdings and those of a partner, Woodrow Harpole Jr., show many of them near the transportation projects he has supported with federal appropriations. For example, Calvert and Harpole own properties close to a bus depot in Corona for which Calvert sought funding. According to development experts, improvements to the transportation infrastructure have contributed to the area's explosive growth.

Calvert said he had used earmarking solely to benefit his district. Those appropriations, he said, have had nothing to do with his investments or financial gains. Noting that property values have climbed throughout the Inland Empire, he added: "They haven't passed a law against investing yet."

Calvert's May 2005 financial disclosure statement showed that he owned eight parcels of land, most in Riverside County, as of December 31, 2004.

On May 19, 2006, The Riverside Press-Enterprise, the sixth largest newspaper in California, editorialized that The Los Angeles Times got the facts wrong and in fact, there was no impropriety on the part of Rep. Calvert [12]. Rep. Calvert has stated that all requests for federal funding come from local entities.

March Air Reserve Base

In 2005, Calvert and Harpole paid $550,000 for a 4.3-acre (17,000 m2) parcel just south of March Air Reserve Base. Calvert's real estate firm, where Calvert's brother, Quint, is the president, and Halpole is vice president, received brokerage fees from the seller, Rod Smith of Greeley, Colorado, for representing both buyer and seller in the deal. Less than a year later, Calvert and Harpole sold the property for nearly $1 million. During the time he owned the land, Calvert used the earmarking process to secure $8 million in federal funds for a freeway interchange 16 miles (26 km) from the property, and an additional $1.5 million to support commercial development of the area around the base.

Cajalco and I-15 interchange

In early summer 2005, Harpole bought property with a group of investors at 20330 Temescal Canyon Road, a few blocks from the site of the what was then a proposed interchange at Cajalco and I-15. The purchase price was $975,000. Within six months, after the bill passed that provided federal funding for the interchange, they sold the parcel for $1.45 million. Calvert's firm took a commission on the sale.

Jurupa CS District

In the spring of 2006, Calvert and Harpole purchased 4 acres (16,000 m2) of land from Jurupa Community Services District (JCSD), a water and sewer district in northwestern Riverside County, for $1.2 million, along with five investment partners who jointly had a one-third interest. A newspaper investigation reported in August 2006 that the district apparently never first offered the land to other public agencies, a requirement of state law intended to provide more recreational land. The district's general manager said other agencies were notified, but representatives of those agencies said they received no such notice. The district could not provide evidence of the notification, saying relevant files had been misplaced.

The community services district did not advertise or list the land for sale, a practice required by counties and many other public agencies seeking top dollar on behalf of taxpayers. District general manager Carole McGreevy, who is stepping down from that position in late 2006 and retiring in late 2007, said the district proclaimed the land surplus in the early 1990s after it was no longer needed for flood control. The record of that decision was among the missing documents, as was the updated appraisal that McGreevy said was done in May 2005.

The land could have served as a community park in a predominately Hispanic, lower-income neighborhood in Mira Loma. The Calvert partnership plans to build a mini-storage business.[13] In August 2008, the Jurupa Area Recreation and Parks District (JARPD) filed a lawsuit against JCSD, alleging fraud in the sale of the land. In August 2009, the FBI was looking into the lawsuit. A spokeswoman for Calvert said he had not been contacted by the FBI or a grand jury and did not believe that he was a focus of any investigation.


Calvert was named one of the 15 most corrupt members of Congress by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. They accuse him of gaining personally from earmarks, making allegedly illegal land deals, and having questionable ties to a lobbying firm that is under investigation by the FBI.


In 1993 he was caught by police receiving oral sex from a prostitute and attempted to flee the scene. The Riverside Press-Enterprise went to court to force the Corona police to release the police report. Also in 1993, Calvert and his former wife, Robin, were divorced after 15 years of marriage. In addition, his father committed suicide. After these experiences, Calvert said that the experiences "have helped me mature greatly... and become a better person."

Republican Ken Calvert, representing California's smog-shrouded 43rd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, is on record as having earned 100% ratings from the Christian Coalition. Calvert's rating from the prostitutes'-rights group COYOTE is unavailable for publication, despite documented evidence of Calvert's time in the field researching conditions in the hooker workplace.

On October 8, 1998, Congressman Calvert rhetorically asked his House compatriots: "Did [President Clinton] obstruct justice in a sexual-harassment case? Did he intimidate witnesses? Did he abuse his Presidential power? Only impeachment hearings will answer these serious questions."

Congressman Calvert probably felt qualified to prejudge the Chief Executive because the California legislator holds a particular insight into the psychology of a man of position faced with sexual allegations from his social inferiors. Would a politician dare to abuse the power of his office to squash public disclosure of his sordid sexual practices? Ken Calvert knows beyond any shadow of doubt that the answer is a resounding yes.

During the early-morning hours of November 28, 1993, police officers from Corona, California, spotted Ken Calvert engaged in sex in a parked car. The partial truth of this encounter would be hidden until almost half a year later. For months, Calvert denied that he had done anything wrong with the woman who had been ensconced with him in the vehicle. Police later identified her as a known prostitute, but at the time of the initial press report on the matter, Calvert insisted that "nothing happened."

Corona police would only reveal that the Congressman had been observed in his car with a female and that the couple had exhibited no sign of criminal activity.

Corona Police Captain John Dalzell explained that Calvert was not detained because "while the officer saw certain things, he didn't see everything necessary to support a finding that a crime was committed." According to Dalzell, the responding officer's decision to send Calvert freely on his way "wasn't a close call. He didn't even call for a supervisor." Such are the perks of public office.

The Riverside [California] Press-Enterprise doubted the explanation provided by Calvert and the cops. The newspaper went to court to force the Corona police to release the confidential report prepared by the cops at the scene of the "noncrime." These officers most certainly recognized that they had encountered their local Congressman with his genitals literally exposed.

The police report is inconsistent with both Calvert's and the Corona P.D.'s versions of events. In the words of assisting officers Steve Sears and Fred Austin: "I observed a male subject in the driver seat....As I made my way to the driver door, a female immediately sat up straight in the front passenger seat. It appeared as if her head was originally laying [sic] in the driver's lap.... Both subjects were extremely nervous....

"I noticed that the male subject was placing his penis into his unzipped dress slacks, and was trying to hide it with his untucked dress shirt....The male subject started his vehicle and placed it into drive and proceeded to leave. I ordered him three times to turn off the vehicle, and he finally stopped and complied....The male identified himself as Kenneth Stanton Calvert...and stated 'We're just talking that's all, nothing else.'...I spoke with [Calvert's female companion, Lore Lorena] Linberg separately. I asked her if she had ever been arrested for anything, and she said, 'Yes, for prostitution and under the influence of heroin.' Linberg said she had last 'shot up' approximately one week prior and is currently on methadone."

Once the facts had been forced into the open, Calvert quickly responded with an apology, a simple explanation and a denial. The Congressman acknowledged that he had been caught in "an extremely embarrassing situation," then made the extraordinarily hard-to-swallow claim that he had not paid for sex from an established professional. Calvert further defied credibility by claiming that he had "panicked and tried to drive away," but "came to my senses."

Calvert presented a very plausible explanation for his conduct: "I was feeling intensely lonely."

The lawmaker did not, however, offer any explanation of why he had lied about an illicit sexual contact for months, nor why he so vehemently begrudged another man's use of sex­i.e., President Bill Clinton­to soften the hard isolation of elective office.

Rep. Ken Calvert Is an Embarrassment to California -- Should He Step Down?

Read more at:

Ken Calvert, who represents a suburban Inland Empire district in southern Orange County and western Riverside County (CA-44), has been on our radar for a very long time -- and yesterday's announcement of an FBI investigation of one of California's most incorrigible political crooks registered as more overdue than unexpected. A former real estate speculator, Calvert first came to the attention of non-political junkies when he was arrested -- a Republican "Family Values" hypocrite -- with a young woman he didn't know in a parked car, his pants down around his knees. (She turned out to be Lore Lorena Lindberg, a heroin addict with several prostitution convictions.)

But even before that, Congressman Calvert was involved with a series of shady real estate deals, the same pay for play scam that led to the conviction of his buddy and political ally Randy "Duke" Cunningham, and an international espionage and bribery caper in Saudi Arabia with convicted felons Cunningham and Thomas Kontogiannis.

In Calvert's case, it's hard to know where to start sorting through all the garbage. Probably the best place to start is by looking at his real estate dealings and how they have been impacted by his earmarks on the House Transportation Committee. To put it really simply, Calvert would make sure millions of taxpayer dollars were spent on building roads to worthless parcels of land that he and his shady business partner, a character named Woody Harpole, bought for pennies and sold, because of the government-financed improvements, for dollars.

If you look at Calvert's and Harpole, Jr's real estate investments, it's impossible not to notice that they cluster around transportation projects that Calvert supported with taxpayer dollars -- like in a Corona area which has experienced a good deal of bubble-like growth because of a bus depot Calvert got funded. Calvert's firm, which his brother heads, bought a 4.3 acre parcel near the March Air Reserve Base and Calvert immediately got to work getting an $8 million freeway exchange built so he could sell the land for double what he paid for it. Same thing happened with a site they bought at Temescal Canyon Road near a proposed interchange at Cajalco and the I-15. Calvert, according to the L.A. Times profited handsomely for his blatant conflict of interest. Calvert snickers when reporters ask him about this stuff: "They haven't passed a law against investing yet."

Even for a speculator like Calvert, it was an unusually good deal.

During the time he owned the land, Calvert used the legislative process known as earmarking to secure $8 million for a planned freeway interchange 16 miles from the property, and an additional $1.5 million to support commercial development of the area around the airfield.

A map of Calvert's recent real estate holdings and those of his partner shows many of them near the transportation projects he has supported with federal appropriations. And improvements to the transportation infrastructure have contributed to the area's explosive growth, according to development experts.

...What sets Calvert's actions apart from the traditional efforts of lawmakers to bring federal dollars home to their districts is that some of the spending has gone for improvements near his private real estate ventures, and he has used earmarking to secure the tax dollars... He also has secured funds for a number of projects pushed by campaign contributors, including employees of the Washington lobbying firm of Copeland Lowery & Jacquez, his top political donor in the last election cycle.

But the most serious questions, ethics specialists say, involve Calvert's participation in real estate ventures in which his earmarks for highway and other improvements may have contributed to rising land values and created at least the appearance that he personally benefited.

The latest bit of malfeasance involves 4 acres Calvert and Harpole bought from the Jurupa Community Services District in 2006 for $1.2 million. The land was purchased as part of a sweetheart deal and was clearly done illegally, the district neither looking for competitive bids nor offering it to other state agencies. (The Riverside County Grand Jury has already ruled that Calvert's acquisition violated state law.) A predominantly Hispanic neighborhood, Mira Loma, wants to use the land as a community park and baseball field; Calvert is determined to turn it into mini-self-storage units. When Calvert came under scrutiny for the deal, he lied about it and claimed he was a silent partner.

But, in the 2006 L.A. Times story linked above, about another fortuitous land sale of Calvert's, Harpole was quoted that he had to consult with Calvert when investing Calvert's money: "[O]f course I have to consult with him if we are looking at investing his money." Harpole also said at the time, "I told him about one [deal] and he said, 'No, I don't think so.'"

Calvert's partnership negotiated an extended escrow period of up to 15 months which worked to Calvert's benefit since at the time real estate experts argues that prices were rising 15 to 25 percent a year. Additionally, while the property was still in escrow, a higher offer came in -- and was rejected -- bolstering claims that the deal was done to help curry political favor with Calvert's office. All this led to the Riverside County Grand Jury, in 2007, finding that the Jurupa Community Services District violated state law when it sold the land to Calvert and his partners without offering it to other local agencies first, including the Park District, which had shown interest in the land. The Jurupa Park District announced this summer that it would be forced to spend $1.7 million in 2009-2010 in expected legal costs tied to the Calvert land deal -- more tax dollars Calvert is costing the hard-pressed residents of Riverside County.

Calvert has always denied every single crime he's been involved in. Even with his penis clearly in plain view (according to the official police report) he told the arresting officer he and the prostitute were "just chatting." He claims all his perfectly routine real estate shenanigans are made to look nefarious because of political vendettas against him. Last year, the voters in CA-44 seemed to be having second thoughts about Calvert, who eked out a razor thin victory against a little-known -- and massively outspent -- Bill Hedrick, 51-49%. Hedrick spent $191,461 or $1.48 per vote he received. Calvert spent $1,150,432-- $8.85 per vote!

Calvert fought against this past March's Helping Families Save Their Homes Act, even though over 16,000 families have been foreclosed on in his district and even though the 4 year projection rate for CA-44 is for over 53,400 families to lose their homes. Now, with Calvert adamantly opposing meaningful health care reform against the wishes of his constituents (146,000 of whom have no health insurance coverage), it is likely that the latest round of scandals will be the final nail in the coffin of his political career. Bill Hedrick, in fact, is running against him again. Unfortunately, the big lobbyists and corporate special interests who are so well served by Calvert's ethics-free operations have opened the funding gates wide for him again and he's already up $773,633 to Hedrick's $122,672.

Earmarking for Personal Financial Benefit

In 2005, Rep. Calvert and his real estate partner, Woodrow Harpole, Jr., paid $550,000 for a four acre piece of land at Martin Street and Seaton Avenue in Perris, just 4 miles south of the March Air Reserve Base in California. Less than a year after buying the land, without making any improvements to the parcel, they sold the property for $985,000, a 79% increase. During this period, Rep. Calvert pushed through an earmark to secure $8 million for an overhaul and expansion of a freeway interchange 16 miles from the property, as well as an additional $1.5 million for commercial development in the area around the airfield.

In another deal, a group of investors bought property a few blocks from the site of the proposed interchange, for $975,000. Within six months after the earmark for the interchange was appropriated, the parcel of land sold for $1.45 million. Rep. Calvert’s firm received a commission on the sale.

By using his position to earmark funds to increase the value of his own property, Rep. Calvert violated the prohibition against using his position as a member of Congress to advance his own financial interests and engaged in conduct that does not reflect creditably on the House.

Relationship with Lobbying Firm

The former lobbying firm of Copeland Lowery Jacquez Denton & White (“Copeland Lowery”) is currently under investigation by a federal grand jury for its ties to Appropriations Committee ranking member Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-CA). On May 23, 2006, as part of its investigation into Rep. Lewis’ ties to Mr. Lowery, the FBI obtained Rep. Calvert’s financial records at the same time that it pulled Rep. Lewis’s financial records. Rep. Calvert helped pass through at least 13 earmarks sought by Copeland Lowery in 2005, adding up to over $91 million.

Rep. Calvert may have violated federal law and House rules by accepting campaign contributions from Copeland Lowery clients in exchange for earmarks.

Land Deals

A grand jury in Riverside County, California has examined the 2006 land sale by the Jurupa Community Services District to Rep. Calvert and his business partners and concluded the sale was illegal because the district failed to first offer the land to other public agencies.

In August 2008, the Jurupa Area Recreation and Park District (JARPD) filed a lawsuit against the Jurupa Community Services District for fraud and deceit for selling the property to Rep. Calvert and his partners.

On June 16, 2009, the Riverside County supervisors voted 3-1 to approve a zoning change to Rep. Calvert’s property, reclassifying it from agricultural to commercial property. The change will allow Rep. Calvert and his business partner, Stadium Properties, to build a storage facility that will likely increase the value of the property. Despite the increase in land value, JARPD continues to hope to be able to purchase the property from Stadium Properties, but it is unclear if Stadium Properties will sell the land. Rep. Calvert describes himself as a “passive one-third partner” in the land partnership.
