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.

Blog Talk: Feel Free to Ignore

by lewwaters

Monkey, EmbarrassedIt is said that ignorance is bliss. And if there is any truth to be found in that line from Thomas Gray’s poem, nowhere could it be found better than right here in good old Clark County Washington.

As we know, ignorance is essentially a lack of knowledge on any given matter. It’s pretty much what would be found where objectivity is nonexistent and the pabulum of bias prevails as people become too lazy to seek accurate knowledge and place unwarranted trust in those they believe are the best to lead them for any variety of reasons.

Such thought was summed up by the father of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin when he claimed, “The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses.”

She Never Said That?

by lewwaters

Baltimore, Maryland Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has come under fire following the mayhem and rioting seen in recent days in that city for words she spoke on giving space to destroy. She now claims she never said what has been clearly recorded coming from her own mouth.

Now, I could believe she did not mean what she said or her words came out wrong from what she actually meant to say, but to outright deny saying what has been clearly recorded?

And consider those youths and agitators in Baltimore hearing those same words?

The Mayor should admit what she said and clarify along with condemning the violence (which she has), but playing victim over what she clearly stated does nothing to help calm things down.

What Happened To The “Spirit of Comradeship?”

by lewwaters

Then General of the Army (Five Star) Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in Europe, expressed some lofty goals immediately after the Allied Victory in World War II that served us quite well, for a time.

Below are his opening remarks to an October 1945 film, The True Glory commissioned by the US Office of War Information and the British Ministry of Information, “documenting the victory on the Western Front, from Normandy to the collapse of the Third Reich.”

I have to ask, what happened?

Cleveland Still Doesn’t Get It! Updated

by lewwaters

April 23, 2015: Liz Pike’s Bi-State Bridge Coalition Q & A

Cleveland 3Annette Cleveland, Democrat 49th Legislative District State Senator once again fires and misses the target! In an op-ed published by the Lazy C, pertaining to renewed efforts to engage Oregon in discussions on alleviating traffic congestion on the overcrowded I-5 corridor, she once again spews her misguided view.

“As we consider any renewed effort to come up with a plan to replace the dangerous Interstate 5 Bridge, it is imperative that we apply the lessons of the more than 10-year effort to build the Columbia River Crossing,” Cleveland writes.

She continues, “First, we learned that a decade-long process of designs, plans and public meetings can be derailed at the 11th hour, wasting millions of dollars already spent and leaving hundreds of millions of federal dollars on the table. We can’t afford to squander taxpayer dollars like that.”

Saying Goodbye to 2014

by lewwaters

Fireworks 3Another year is coming to a close and in spite of efforts by operatives from the Clark County R3publicans, the little blog performed well again, exceeding 100,000 views in the year. A summary provided by WordPress can be viewed at Annual Review.

2014 was a year of revelations to me, many I wish I hadn’t seen that have left me very distrustful of some elected officials I previously supported. One of the bigger disappointments was hearing very early in the year of a new media source forming that would fill the void left by the Lazy C and not seeing it materialize, but amount to little more than a facebook page.

Be that as it may, 2015 is before us with many unknowns that only time will reveal.

Happy New Year to one and all. I sincerely hope you all have a great 2015 where you prosper and thrive.

Shame on Both Political Parties

by lewwaters

As most realize, today, December 7 is what has been known as “the date that will live in infamy” due to the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor back in 1941 that thrust the United States into World War Two.

It is a day to be remembered and has been remembered since.

Locally, there is a yearly Remembrance hosted by the Sons & Daughters of Pearl Harbor Survivors to keep the memory alive, what with survivors of that fateful day being short in number now due to age.

Think Before You Vote

by lewwaters

Although mentioning only the presidency, Politicians at all levels and from both major parties make monkey’s out of us when we don’t do our homework and elect better ones than we have had.

This song was released by singer, songwriter Tom T. Hall, a Democrat in June 1972, an election year where incumbent Republican Richard Nixon defeated Democrat challenger George McGovern in a landslide election, carrying 49 of the 50 states.

Within two years, Nixon became the only U.S. President ever forced to resign in disgrace.

28.38% Voter Turnout? Shame on You Clark County

by lewwaters

Crying BabyThe 2014 Primary Election is behind us now and I have to tell you, it is embarrassing; no it is pathetic that this election saw such a dismal turnout in Clark County, the fourth lowest in the entire state.

Four years ago, 38.99% was the Primary election turnout and even that is ridiculously low. But, 28% is pathetic in a county that remains mired in economic uncertainty and under the shadow of a larger out of state city ready to impose their will upon us at any given moment.

What with so many of you always complaining about Portland calling the shots in our community, the only way to push them back is by voting in capable representatives at all levels willing to stand up to Portland and to remind them we are supposed to be partners in this so-called “metropolitan” region, not just a smaller community they can force their will on, sucking revenues away from and return nothing.

Mike Briggs Wants Your Paycheck

by lewwaters

Mike Briggs, Democrat candidate in the 18th Legislative District speaking to KPSU’s “Raging Moderate” on how he would like to slap more taxes on every middle class taxpayer in some mistaken belief that further burdening struggling families makes education “more affordable.”

Do we really need another tax happy Democrat in Olympia, Washington?

Mike Briggs, Ready To Sell You Out

by lewwaters

For all of you voters still marking your ballots and something to retain should by some miracle, Briggs make it through the top two primary, an excerpt of an interview Briggs had with KPSU’s “the Raging Moderate, not afraid to tact to the left” on June 26, 2014. Full interview can be heard on Briggs’ campaign page.

Such dependence on Portland has contributed to our economic problems in Clark County as they seek more ways to suck our revenues out and entice our citizens to spend their money over there instead of in our own community. Portland needs to become a friendly neighbor to us, not the out of state special interest interested only in what they can take from us.

Mike Briggs & A Bogus Abraham Lincoln Quote

by lewwaters

Apparently getting more desperate, marginal Democrat candidate for the 18th Legislative District, Mike Briggs, is trying to score points as a “friend of labor,” thinking dwindling union support might help his fleeting cause of being elected. In so doing, he posted the following on his facebook page recently;

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?

Jim Moeller’s “Garbage” Pt. 3

Part three revealing Jim Moeller’s own “garbage” spewed from his own mouth, as he whines about “garbage” from others.

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.

Hey Lefty, Your Facade Is Slipping

by lewwaters

donkey-eyesReminiscent of an editorial after Barack Obama won his chance to dismantle American freedoms in 2008, now comes Lazy C editor, ‘Lefty’ Lou Brancaccio with yet another smokescreen call of “come together.”

Now, as then, it is nothing more than a partisan call to isolate those he dislikes, conservative Republicans and fall into step with his preferred socialistic and beloved Democrats as we see the call is always “come together” under Democrats with him.

The editorial, Press Talk: It’s time to move forward is nothing more than another thinly veiled attack against conservative Republicans, focusing on the same three, Benton, Mielke & Madore that we have seen every week for months now.

Now that Steve Stuart is Bailing

by lewwaters

Clark County CommissionersAs announced, Clark County Commissioner Steve Stuart has been named as the next City manager for the city of Ridgefield, Washington. Stuart previously announced he would not run for reelection this year, very likely having read the tea leaves that his chances for reelection were somewhat remote, at best.

With his leaving office early, if he actually does, the seat becomes vacant and the political party he ran under, Democrats have to present three names to the remaining County Commissioners to select his replacement.

Whoever is selected will finish out Stuarts term in office and likely will run for reelection in this November’s election.
