Mayor Leavitt, “Gutless & Spineless?”

by lewwaters

Leavitt 5The Lazy C was sure to boast of Mayor Tim ‘the Liar’ Leavitt boycotting the recent Keynote speech Lt. Gen. Boykin, cowering from complaints by pro-Muslim group CAIR.

It turns out that the event ended up selling out after Levitt’s cowardly boycott, joined in by fellow Vancouver City Council Members, Larry J. Smith (Colonel, ret, US Army Ranger) and Anne McEnerny Ogle. Video of the General’s speech can be seen here.

General Boykin, ever the gentleman and appreciative of Leavitt’s avoiding the speech and possibly distracting him, thanked him and CAIR both very publicly on his facebook page this evening.

by lewwaters

For those unable to attend, the full Keynote speech given by “controversial” Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (US Army ret.) at the 13th Annual Clark County Mayors and Civic Leaders Prayer Breakfast in Vancouver, Washington, Oct. 17, 2014 and boycotted by Mayor Tim ‘the Liar’ Leavitt and Vancouver City Council Members, Larry J. Smith (Col. US Army ret.) and Ann McEnerny Ogle.

The Prayer Breakfast faced a brief protest staged by a group of Liberal Democrats opposed to the War Hero speaking as the audience assembled, organized by a group calling themselves “Stand on the Side of Tolerance.”

From “Attack Dog” to Respected Official

by lewwaters

Dollar Sign 2This time four years ago, our local newspaper of record pulled out all of the stops in their effort to smear and denigrate then County Assessor candidate, Peter Van Nortwick. They spared little ink accusing him of engaging in “attack dog campaigning” which he masterfully turned around on them, walking through the Hazel Dell Parade of Bands blaring out the song, “Who Let The Dogs Out.”

Editor ‘Lefty’ Lou Brancaccio went after him over a past divorce accusing him of not being able to get along with others.

The Lazy C even tried tying him to then private citizen, now County Commissioner David Madore as well as the much hated State Senator from the 17th district, Republican Don Benton.

Their efforts failed and Peter Van Nortwick easily sailed to victory by a 5% margin, over 6,500 votes.

Why Vote No on I-594?

by lewwaters

It is your rights at stake. I-594 will not do anything to decrease crime or keep illegal guns out of the hands of criminals. Criminals do not follow the law, what makes anybody believe they will follow this law?

Is Monica Stonier Still “Dedicated” to Obama?

by lewwaters

Monica Stonier HatBy now, most people in the country realize what a total failure Obama has been. Ebola threatening to spread, the Middle East coming unglued with ISIS beheading and murdering throughout the region, the national debt reaching $18 Trillion, participation in the labor force at an all-time low and so much more.

In fact, even many Democrats seem to feel he has become completely disconnected with several distancing themselves in hopes of winning reelection in a year that looks like may become a complete route for Republicans again.

According to Monica Stonier, back in 2008, she was completely enamored with and declared dedication to Obama, as evidenced below;

More Laziness at the Lazy C?

by lewwaters

Has Lefty Lou been reading my blog again? In my election predictions that I posted on September 20, 2014, I wrote of Lisa Ross;

“Ross is more of a novice without a clue of what she is doing, evidenced by her recent side by side interview on CVTV, reading every answer to questions, including her personal history, verbatim, word for word from papers held up at eye level.”

In the Lazy C’s endorsement of Jim Moeller posted October 13, 2014, they write about Lisa Ross;

“Moeller’s superiority in this race was evident during a recent side-by-side interview on CVTV, where Ross read all her answers verbatim off prepared notes — including her personal history.”

Your original thought and words, Lou?

Lefty Lou’s Mental Disorder and Obsession

by lewwaters

Tits on a bullThis blog has repeatedly indicated how the editor of the local Daily Newsletter for the Democrat Party, the Columbian better known as the Lazy C, appears to be mentally challenged with some sort of disorder causing him to pay undo attention to only a few elected officials in the weekly Press Talk editorials.

Wondering whether or not I might be a little off in my estimation, I went back and looked through the archived editorials. Below are listed, by title, of a list of weekly editorials penned by Lefty that are either about or make a derogatory mention of one of the so-called “M&M Boys” or State Senator Don Benton (R 17).

I’ll leave it to readers to determine if Lefty has gone overboard in his denigrations since January 2012 when the County Commission majority changed to a more conservative majority.

The Push Is On! Updated

by lewwaters

Greg Jayne facetiously notes, in his Sunday Oct. 12, 2014 column, the Democrats Home Rule opposition from 2002 and mentions how things have changed since then.

Maybe he should have used some more recent quotes displaying opposition to the Home Rule Charter:

“When a wild goose chase clearly defines itself before it even begins, responsible travelers will decline to embark on the journey. Such is the case before Clark County commissioners as they ponder another expedition into the well-known futility of changing county government to a home rule charter.”

“But, as The Columbian wrote recently in an editorial, exploring the idea of a home rule charter would be a wild goose chase, seeking to solve problems that are nonexistent. This time, we’ll opt for a different animal analogy and reiterate that it would be a waste of time, money, and energy only to have voters beat this horse again.” Columbian Editorial, In Our View: Solutions … No Problems; March 19, 2013

Yes, motive for charter matters

by lewwaters

HuhI’m surprised that the Lazy C actually published my letter to the editor on the motive for this Home Rule Charter, Yes, motive for charter matters

Surprised because I am banned by Lefty Lou hisself over “name calling,” my labeling then the Lazy C over their woefully inadequate and biased coverage of political issues.

As is expected, the C3G2 crowd tells me to adjust my tin foil hat and reminds me that they were at the meeting I mention, indicating I wasn’t. While that is true, I do have video of the meeting to back up my allegations of the motive posted at Craig Pridemore: Forgetful or Just Dishonest?

Think you can trust Craig Pridemore? Think again

by lewwaters

At a forum when he briefly ran for 3rd Congressional District in 2010, he is quoted,

“There’s only one time the federal government should ever deficit spend and that’s a time when the economy is sluggish and we need something to get things moving again, and that’s a time like now. As soon as those times are over we have to get back to a time when the budget is balanced.”

http://www.nwprogressive.org/weblog/2010_01_01_archive.html

According to Ballotpedia, when given the chance to vote for a bipartisan balanced budget requirement in 2012, he voted No.

Why Is Deanna Pauli Hammond Running For County Clerk?

Seriously? Deanna Pauli Hammond wants to be elected to County Clerk so that she won’t be bored?

That is not reason enough for me.

Lefty Lou’s ‘Disonestà’

by lewwaters

Lou Brancaccio CountLooks like the Lazy C’s Lefty Lou Brancaccio is at it again. His Madore obsession once again floods his weekly Press Talk editorial and he attempts this time to smear a gracious and principled woman, Jeanne Stewart.

Lefty attempts the very link I warned others of, tying her to controversial County Commissioner, David Madore, just as was done last year when she was ousted from the Vancouver City Council only to be replaced by a rubber stamp for the downtown mafia.

Now, Lefty makes a fuss over Ms. Stewart accepting maximum donations from Madore and his wife, Donna of $950 each, as if that places her under Madore’s influence.

Craig Pridemore: Forgetful or Just Dishonest?

by lewwaters

Craig Pridemore says the Clark County Home Rule Charter had nothing to do with reaction to anything, but that is not what he and others said last year when it was none other than Craig that brought up the use of a Home Rule Charter as an alternative to a recall of Commissioners David Madore and Tom Mielke due to Democrats extreme dislike of losing the majority on the County Commission and the hiring of Sen. Don Benton to head the Dept of Environmental Services.

Pridemore & Stewart on the Home Rule Charter

by lewwaters

Wooden NickelWe read in the Oct. 2, 2014 Lazy C article Pridemore, Stewart differ on big issues;

“He [Craig Pridemore] called the charter an effort to make the county better. He said the county was a different place today than it was in 1889, when the president approved the state constitution, which spelled out the composition of county government.”

“[Jeanne] Stewart, a former Vancouver city councilwoman, disagreed, saying the home rule charter was an extreme reaction by some to the actions of Commissioners David Madore and Tom Mielke, both Republicans.”
