VACATION

by lewwaters

Just to let everybody know, I will be out of town for the next week and a half, going to take some time to visit family and a new grand daughter.

I will have my netbook, but will likely not be online a lot, so do not despair, I will approve comments when I can. Sorry for the delay.

I will also read emails as I can.

Flight leaves at 8:30, so early to bed tonight as well.

Keep them on their toes while I am gone :-)

Even Democrats Not Safe From Jim Moeller’s “Garbage”

by lewwaters

I’ve already given a couple examples of Jim Moeller (D 49) own “garbage” he has expressed over time towards Republicans. But his “garbage” has not been reserved solely for the Republicans. Anybody that is not in lock-step with Moeller is subjected to such “garbage.”

For a refresher over this 2012 incident, please see Of “Self Inflicted Wounds” and “Fairly Horrible Experiences” and Why Was Jon Haugen ‘Sanctioned’ By the Democrats?

Will the Hate from the Left Ever End?

by lewwaters

Crying BabyIn spite of their cries of being for every man, being caring and loving and other such bilge, We have seen the Democrats acting more like those Brown Shirts Brian Baird spoke of back in 2009 than anything else.

We see it daily in a small facebook group, “Clark County Citizens for Good Governance, (C3G2) that actually translates out to “Put Democrats back in control.”

Yes, they do not like how the 2012 County elections turned out and two conservatives became the majority on the County Commission and began changing the direction of the county, as asked by the wide majority that elected them.

Jim Moeller’s “Garbage” Pt. 2

by lewwaters

Part two showing some of the “garbage” that has come from Rep Jim Moeller (D. 49) over the years, since he wrote under a Lazy C post,

“I can hardly believe some of the garbage that comes out of (so-called) Republican mouths. It’s time the moderates jettison the religious-right and Tea-Party factions within the Republican party and have them form their own.”

I can’t help but wonder why he campaigned against outgoing President Bush and International issues instead of what he planned to do as a state legislator.

Jim Moeller’s “Garbage” Pt. 1

by lewwaters

Very recently, Rep Jim Moeller (D. 49) wrote a comment under a Lazy C post,

“I can hardly believe some of the garbage that comes out of (so-called) Republican mouths. It’s time the moderates jettison the religious-right and Tea-Party factions within the Republican party and have them form their own.”

With that thought in mind, I looked back at some of Jim Moeller’s own speeches and will be periodically posting video excerpts of the “garbage” we have seen coming from him over the years. First part above.

Carolyn Crain For 49th Representative

by lewwaters

We need to elect Carolyn Crain to the 49th Legislative District. She has been involved deeply for years  and has spoken up on behalf of citizens, Veterans, the elderly and more numerous times, far more than any opponent has.

If anybody can defeat Jim ‘da Taxman’ Moeller, it is Carolyn Crain

Why Private?

by lewwaters

Lew's Blog a

As you all know, I made my blog private again and have not been allowing many people in to view it. That is really not important anyway as I haven’t put much on the blog in the last couple weeks. But, at the risk of being accused of “assuming the fetal position,” “sour grapes,” or “getting bent out of shape” I’ll let you know why.

As most know, even though long accused of being a “Republican lackey” and “Madoreite,” I did expose an effort by the local GOP to selectively stack PCO slots and for that effort, became subjected to a massive smear campaign that I have to believe came from within the local GOP.

The CCGOP Executive Board

by lewwaters

It is unknown just why, but the Clark County Republican Party chooses to not list who their executive officers sitting in control on the Executive Board are, completely unlike before and unlike the Clark County Democrats, but we do know who a couple are, in large part to their outspoken acts. We know Kenny Smith is Chair, Brenda Poletti is Vice-Chair and Christian Berrigan is what they have labeled Operations Director, whatever that is.

But I am also hearing from numerous sources of the recent appointment to the board of Katja Delavar, supposedly in a non-voting capacity to some seat.

With this nomination it would seem a dream from years ago is fulfilled of Katja successfully taking over the local party for Ron Paul as back in 2008, Katja, wife of ex-Washougal city council member and candidate again for the 3rd Congressional District Michael Delavar, was heard promoting strong pro Ron Paul stances in an April 10, 2008 interview with the 911 Truther group “American Underground Network,”

You can listen to the audio of that interview at Katja Delavar AUN 04-10-2008

Oh, the Irony

by lewwaters

I watched the recent elongated Vancouver City Council meeting where the main subject was the resolutions against the Tesoro/Savage Oil Terminal at our Port. Around 10:30 or so, the following public service announcement floored me, considering that hundreds of people that literally hate fossil fuel, or so they claim, showed up to express their opposition.

Ironic? Or just every day, common hypocrites?

They have jobs so they can buy gasoline to drive down to a meeting to protest and oppose you having a job as part of the chain providing that gasoline they buy.

Laying It Out On The Table

by leaortiz

“Put it this way, folks. Lew puts stuff out on the table for all to see WITHOUT the financial backing or elbow rubbing of certain individuals not only in our county, but from across the country. His only intention is to inform the people as he sees it on a blog”

I don’t know who this person is but I love him/her.  The key here is that there is no financial backing, therefore there is not an indebtedness towards any candidate.

When we took my computer in to be serviced recently, (PC Wizard) we made slight mention of Lew being a political blogger.  After we went to pick up and pay for the cleaned up computer, our computer geek had looked Lew up and was astonished.  He says… WOW, you really are a blogger, and not just any blogger.  He expected a fluff site, nope, not here.

Withdrawing the Acceptance of an Apology

by lewwaters

Anybody that has paid any attention realizes by now that I have soured quite a bit on the Clark County Republican Party under the Ron Paul Brown Shirt Republican Liberty Caucus due to the smears directed at me personally over my exposing Christian Berrigan’s sneaky, underhanded effort to stack PCO slots.

Those smears were done from the shadows by people unknown, but connected to the CCGOP and refuse to come out in the open, leaving me with no one connected to the party that I can trust.

Towards the top of that list of those I can no longer trust is County Commissioner David Madore, in large part for hearing of his funding of these cowardly people and that he was caught undermining the efforts of this blog, explained at Prosper and Thrive?

But, that wasn’t the first time Madore took something from me to put out as his.

Hypocrisy of the Highest Order

by lewwaters

Referring back to the smear effort against me of late over exposing the secretive effort of Christian Berrigan to selectively “create a situation where THEY OFFER to withdraw,” the utter hypocrisy of the effort and the subsequent smear is evident in an interview of Berrigan when he ran for WSRP Chair last year.

You can view the full interview at Victory Girls, a blog that I have the utmost respect for.

VG: What will you do to combat the corruption and back room dealings so prevalent in the WSRP and RLCWA?

CB: First and foremost, be intolerant of it when it occurs. Culturally, educate our party leaders as to how that kind of activity demoralizes, deflates and discourages our grassroots. Show them examples of how some of our best people get alienated when they are treated unfairly. Demonstrate how fair play makes defeat more palatable, and makes it easier for people to cooperate after a loss. Systemically, codify reforms into our state bylaws where appropriate, and encourage counties to take similar action appropriate to them. Personally, I will not tolerate the temptation to use power or position to manipulate an outcome. Our intra-party battles must be waged on a level playing field or we will continue to alienate members and thereby destroy ourselves.

Prosper and Thrive?

by lewwaters

Never Push

As you all know, I have been subjected to a massive smear campaign of late because of exposing some underhanded tactics by the Clark County Republican Party. It backfired on them as a surprising number of people, young and old, Democrat and Republican even an Independent or two sent me messages of support, agreeing that what I exposed needed to be exposed.

It is widely believed that this current group of what I can only describe as “hotheads” was funded in their takeover of the CCGOP by current County Commissioner, David Madore, also owner of US Digital. Whether he has any direct involvement in this smear campaign, I really do not know, but he told me he does not and added he has no idea who they are.
