Democrats Change of Color

by lewwaters

A contrast of the Democrats I grew up under compared to today’s Democrats.

What happened, Democrats? Y’all used to proudly defend liberty and freedom?

Now, it’s just not worth it?

Jim Moeller to Run For Lt. Governor

by lewwaters

Moeller, likely the furthermost left leaning Democrat in Southwest Washington has announced in 2016 he will leave the seat in the 49th Legislative District he has held for over a decade in order to run for Lt. Governor.

Moeller, a homosexual activist that led the fight to bring homosexual marriage to Washington State, says he will work for stricter gun control, $15 minimum wage and a capital gains tax, tax increases being his signature goal that earned him the nickname ‘Da Taxman.’

Las Vegas, “A Timeless Veteran’s Memorial”

by lewwaters

Received from the American Legion. I hope to travel to Las Vegas to view this once completed.

In my opinion, a very respectful concept.

Of Alinsky, Bias and the Lazy C

by lewwaters

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.” Rules for Radicals; Saul Alinsky; Rule 11

Wooden NickelAs you know, I have opted to stay out of the election and campaigns this time around. Doing so and observing more from sidelines has revealed what I pretty much already knew and made it clearer than ever.

That being, of course, the so-called newspaper of record for Southwest Washington really is nothing more than a mouthpiece for the Democrat Party or the Special Interest Downtown Mafia.

Perhaps unwittingly, but they have now admitted it in a September 12, 2015 article on the 125th anniversary of the creation of the paper where they claim that is was founded in 1890 as “a weekly paper with a Democratic bent designed to counter the local Republican paper of the time.”

Anti-Gun Nuts Going,, Well,, Nuts!

by lewwaters

Occupant Gun WarningOnce again tragedy has struck in yet another ‘Gun-Free Zone,’ this time in the small community of Roseburg, Oregon. Another unhinged person shot and killed people on the campus of Umpqua Community College.

For those that claim the campus was not ‘Gun-Free’ due to Oregon law, please recheck your sources as the laws on guns on campuses in Oregon is much more complicated than believed.

Be that as it may, tragedy struck and 10 people are dead, 9 innocents and the shooter with more wounded, hopefully to survive and regain their lives.

And as we see all too often, gun-haters come out of the woodwork before any corpses are cold to blame guns, the NRA, the Second Amendment, Conservatives, everybody except the actual shooter.

Bully’s Are Not “Willing Partners”

by lewwaters

While many are upset over Ridgefield Mayor Ron Onslow referring to 18th Legislative District Representative Liz Pike as a “Farm Girl” during the October 6, 2015 Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Council meeting, I am more concerned with the blarney uttered by Metro Councilor Shirley Craddick.

“I’ll just be snarky. You had a willing partner on the Oregon side, and it was the state legislature in Washington that didn’t support this package. So when you say you don’t have a partner, you need to take some responsibility in that.”

Ms. Craddick is dead wrong when she said, “You had a willing partner on the Oregon side…”

Did Marc Boldt Really Vote Against Light Rail?

by lewwaters

An interesting referral was made towards me this evening under Lefty Lou’s latest Press Talk rant concerning the Christian Berrigan led Write-in effort of Liz Pike for County Council Chair, one I did not expect.

Way down in the comment, former County Commissioner Betty Sue Morris stated,

“Ed Elder Marc Boldt did not vote for light rail. In 2008, when the ‘preferred alternative’ for the CRC was in front of the RTC for approval and included light rail, both Marc Boldt and I voted no. Check with either Lew Waters [or] Robert Dean if you don’t believe me!”

Thoughts on the Oregon Shooting

by lewwaters

Little is known about the shooter’s motive from yesterday’s shooting at Umpqua Community College, but some information is filtering out and raises questions.

Naturally, there are those that immediately blame the gun and wish to impose more restrictions of law-abiding gun owners, ignoring that criminals like this shooter ignore all laws and restrictions.

But according to a CNN article today, the shooter has a history of mental health issues and had sought mental health treatment.

Why Is Light Rail Being Discussed Again?

by lewwaters

Clark County voters defeated a measure to extend Portland’s light rail line into Vancouver in 1995 by a 2 to 1 vote. Beginning in the early 2000’s, light rail became a growing issue and by 2008 it became the “Locally Preferred Alternative” chosen by the C-Tran Board of Directors, Vancouver City Council and the RTC.

Updated: Look Before You Leap, If Only

by lewwaters

“We should boldly speak the truth without apology, even when it is negative.” – David Madore, October 30, 2011

ConfusedPolitics is said to be a blood sport and all too often, campaigns perpetrate untruths about opponents. Sometimes knowingly and sometimes due to lack of actually looking before making claims about an opponent, not “looking before they leap.”

I think we all remember then candidate David Madore sending out a flyer with claims against then Commissioner Marc Boldt that were easily exposed as not factual and his subsequent flyer apologizing to Boldt, showing that Madore relied on hearsay and did not adequately vet the information he was given.

It appears nothing was learned from then as now we see the same action coming from Madore, Christian Berrigan and a few others involved in the Write-in Liz Pike PAC.

More Desperation and Prevarication in Vancouver

by lewwaters

Word has reached me that Vancouver Mayor, Tim ‘the Liar’ Leavitt is working overtime trying to create a link between David Madore and city councilor Bill Turlay in order to help out his rubber stamp friend, George Francisco since Madore donated to his campaign 4 years ago.

I have to wonder just where Timmy gets off with that considering how in 2009, Tim lied through his teeth on tolls and the CRC, adopting basically the same stand held by David Madore in order to get elected Mayor?

In 2009, Timmy wasn’t very happy over a false linkage to Republican Dino Rossi from a couple years earlier,

Lazy C and Democrats, Consistently Inconsistent

by lewwaters

ConfusedIf you haven’t been keeping up on the current ‘kerfuffle’s’ ongoing in politics locally, the Lazy C’s Greg Jayne reminds of them in his Sunday editorial, It’s hard to see the humor in strident political agendas.

While primarily pointing fingers at the current “write-in” effort in the county council chair race, Jayne does mention the recent matter between the Clark County Democrat Party and the Young Democrats of Clark County when they endorsed separate candidates, the party getting behind Democrat Mike Dalesandro and the Young Democrats endorsing Independent Marc Boldt who has previously ran and won elections as a Republican.

I’m particularly struck by that as I read over on the C3G2 facebook page from Roy Valo, “Yeah, in the Dems we came up with a logical compromise that both the CCDCC and the YDs were satisfied with because we sat down and discussed the issue like adults.”

They dealt with it like adults, huh?

A speech given by U.S. Navy Captain Ouimette back in 2003. Although it has been widely circulated since then, it appears that the very warning he gave has once again been ignored as by and large, Western Civilization has “hit the snooze button and gone back to sleep.”


That’s what we think we heard on the 11th of September 2001 (When more than 3,000 Americans were killed) and maybe it was, but I think it should have been “Get Out of Bed!” In fact, I think the alarm clock has been buzzing since 1979 and we have continued to hit the snooze button and roll over for a few more minutes of peaceful sleep since then.

It was a cool fall day in November 1979 in a country going through a religious and political upheaval when a group of Iranian students attacked and seized the American Embassy in Tehran. This seizure was an outright attack on American soil; it was an attack that held the world’s most powerful country hostage and paralyzed a Presidency. The attack on this sovereign U. S. embassy set the stage for events to follow for the next 23 years.

Updated: Desperation in City Council Race?

by lewwaters

Yes, I vowed to neither support nor oppose any candidate in this election, but blatant lies by a candidate must not stand.

We all know how Mayor Tim ‘the liar’ Leavitt lied on opposing tolls should a new bridge be built back in 2009, only to quickly switch to strongly supporting them after winning against former Mayor Pollard.

We also know how the local alleged newspaper has demonized county councilor Madore, labeling those they lumped in with him, even though they were not part of any cabal as “the Madore Four.”

The campaign then and the efforts of the Lazy C, particularly from the editors would have made Joseph Goebbels proud.

Gillespie’s Smear Effort Falls Flat

by lewwaters

Disclaimer: The following should not be construed as in support of or in opposition to any campaign currently underway. It is merely a “setting the record straight” effort on my part.

Boris ColumbianWe recently saw a new junior reporter show up at the Lazy C, Katie Gillespie to replace or take over where über leftist Stephanie Rice left off.

In a brief exchange with Ms. Gillespie shortly after she was seen participating in the C3G2 hate site on facebook, she assured me of how “proud she is of her objectivity.”

Apparently she and I have all together different definitions of the word “objectivity.”

Win The War, Single Handed in One Day!

by lewwaters

Sitting on the side lines watching the current political climate in Clark County brought a memory of Vietnam back to me.

I’m sure many others that served there or in another Combat Zone recognize what I recall too, that being newbie’s that arrive to your unit, fresh out of whatever training they received, officer, enlisted or what have you and their heads are filled with visions of victory, refusing to listen to older more experienced officers and NCO’s.

We labeled them as out to “win the war, single handed in one day.”

As any soldier can tell you, victory is never easy or quick, and that doesn’t take into consideration how our country seems to have adopted a call it quits attitude these last several decades.

UPDATED: Do We Really Know Who We Are Electing?

by lewwaters

PoliticianA situation presented itself to me earlier today on social media that now has me wondering whether or not we really know who we elect or what their real qualifications are.

In keeping with my pledge to neither support nor oppose any candidate in this election, I won’t be revealing just which candidate this occurred with or what race it is in, but it has been brought to my attention that it is common practice among several candidates and has been going on for years.

Needless to say, I disapprove.

Let’s Stop the BS on the Oil Terminal

by lewwaters

Disclaimer: I am not in the employ of anyone associated with nor have I ever received any support in any form, monetary or otherwise from anybody even remotely associated with the proposed Oil Terminal under consideration at the Port of Vancouver.

Oil, LibertyThere has been a lot of fearmongering going on by those who absolutely hate petroleum, even though they depend on it daily for their own lifestyles. We hear of plummeting property values, bomb trains, blast zones and more as they attempt to instill fear in citizens to block the proposed Oil Terminal.

While there are always inherent dangers in every walk of life, much of what the oil haters are spewing is pure bovine scatology.

Power of the Press? Or Obsessive Hate?

by lewwaters

Brancaccio GoebbelsAs expected, ol Lefty Lou Brancaccio is beside himself in glee and gayety due to the outcome of the primary election this week, evidenced in his latest screed, “Power of the press vs. Madore.”

While I stopped supporting Madore some time ago, I stopped relying on the Lazy C for accurate or truthful information long before that, seeing that under the tutelage of ol Lefty it amounted to little more than a daily mouthpiece for the Democrat Party, unworthy to even wrap rotting fish in.

But, Lefty is beside himself, boasting and basking in his successful hate filled smears.

Even Liberals have complained about his weekly obsessive hate filled rants and face it, Madore never shrunk back from giving ol Lefty all of the material he wanted to use.
