WEA: Lying for Monica Stonier

by lewwaters

The Lazy C remains the Lazy C as copies of this flyer were sent to Lauren Dake, political reporter that never covered them and in emails, was more interested in why the claim was made that the WEA’s independent expenditure’s were the largest in the state. The distortions and fabrications in the flyer apparently were of no interest, as usual, when coming from a Liberal Democrat group. 

Unbelievable how the Greedy Teachers Union, the WEA is attacking Alishia Topper in favor of returning Monica Stonier to the legislature, but this time in the 49th district. We see that the Greedy WEA has spent the largest single amount on independent expenditures supporting Stonier and attacking Topper, even though both are Democrats.

Adding to that now, a flyer sent out by the Greedy WEA blatantly attacking Topper with lie after lie after lie in it.

If we didn’t know better we’d think the Greedy Teachers Union that has in the past supported invalidating our votes for a 2/3 majority requirement for tax increases, support the State Supreme Court fining the legislature and overstepping their bounds in indicating an income tax must be passed against our constitution and continually thumbs their noses at taxpayers, demanding more and more money be confiscated from middle class families is somehow now conservative, opposing all of those very issues they have long supported.

See what I mean below in images from the flyer I received just today.

Topper in the 49th, Pos 2

by lewwaters

stonier-topperEven though I have largely shied away from elections this year, sometimes information comes to me that I just have to share with my readers. This information also will see me changing from throwing away my vote in the 49th Pos. 2 race to voting for Alishia Topper over district hopping Monica Stonier.

I was planning on just not voting in this race since neither candidate aligns with much of my views, but that is no longer the case after seeing last evening how the WEA (Washington Education Association), the granddaddy of greedy teachers unions in our state, has spent over $320,000 in independent expenditures to get Monica Stonier back into the legislature while also spending over $28,000 in opposition to Alishia Topper.

This all the while as Liberals are constantly crying “get the big special interest money out of politics.”

by lewwaters

With the announcement of seven-term Democrat, Jim Moeller not running for another term, the election takes an interesting turn in position 2, 49th Legislative District and as happens in other vacated seats, there is no shortage of hopefuls vying to succeed Moeller as he hopes to unseat 3rd Congressional District Representative, Jaime Herrera Beutler after abandoning his announced run for Lt. Governor.

SENATE

Annette Cleveland, Lewis Gerhardt, Vaughn Henderson, Justin Forsman

Annette Cleveland, Lewis Gerhardt, Vaughn Henderson, Justin Forsman

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.’

Makes Sense

by lewwaters

If Sharon Wylie, Jim Moeller and Annette Cleveland all agree that only “some of the things they do makes sense,” does that mean they realize some of the other things they do make no sense at all?

Don’t you agree it is time we elected people that will work to do things that “make sense” all of the time?

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

Who Is Anson Service?

by lewwaters

That was the question on my mind once I heard that he had announced running against Sharon Wylie for the 49th Legislative District position 1 seat in Olympia. Quite honestly, I had never heard of him in any of my political dealings before. But having attended his campaign kick-off last evening, I do believe we have a candidate to keep an eye on and support.

Jim Moeller Calls For ‘De-Stigmatizing’ HIV Infected Homosexuals

by lewwaters

MoellerI have long maintained that 49th Legislative District Representative Jim Moeller is focused primarily on his own “special interests,” those being the open promotion of homosexuality and societal acceptance of what was considered a ‘deviant lifestyle’ not all that long ago.

Moeller, an open homosexual has been instrumental in the incremental steps taken to legalize homosexual marriage in our state, promoting “domestic partnerships” over the years by using elderly people as a prop and gradually increasing the declared “rights” of homosexuals while retaining their “protected class status.”

I have been labeled a bigot, a liar, a homophobe and what have you when I would mention that domestic partnership laws were merely incremental steps towards fully legalized and recognized homosexual marriage, supporters claiming each time that the specific law proposed was “all they were seeking.” Even if I quoted other openly homosexual legislators claims of it only being an incremental step, I was demeaned for mentioning it.

49th Legislative District Legislators AWOL When It Matters

by lewwaters

DSC00244Washington State 49th Legislative District is probably one of the most liberal districts in the state if not the most liberal. A conservative Republican candidate doesn’t stand a chance of being elected in the 49th as all that seems to matter is that ‘D’ behind a candidate’s name, evidenced by the reelection of Jim Moeller 5 times, even though he openly holds constituents in deep disdain, passing ridiculous taxes that get overturned by citizen initiative and even suing constituents to invalidate their votes when he disagrees with them.

Moeller seems to think his reelection and the election of Sharon Wylie, married to Vancouver City Attorney Ted Gathe, even the election of inexperienced Annette Cleveland to the State Senate over Eileen Qutub in 2012, an experienced former legislator from Oregon (just like Wylie) grants them some sort of carte blanche to just do as they please, very proud of the fact that his party has held a lock on state government for over a decade.

But let’s face it, you find the dead, rotting carcass of a road kill raccoon and run it in the 49th as a Democrat and it would get elected by at least 60%, voters not looking at anything but party affiliation.

The Two Faces of Jim Moeller

by lewwaters

Moeller FacesBombastic, Arrogant, Narcissist, Megalomaniac, all adjectives that have been used and well fit 49th Legislative District Representative Jim Moeller, the Democratic easily reelected to a 5th term in what may be one of the most liberal districts in the state and definitely in Clark County. Moeller is well known as a ‘tax & spender’ always seeking ways to increase taxes and throwing money around, our money, not his own, as if a clown in parade.

From his ‘candy tax’ that was quickly nullified by voter initiative to his joining a lawsuit to invalidate voters votes on another citizen initiative calling on the legislature to require a 2/3 majority vote to increase taxes, Jim Moeller sits in his legislative office ignoring those he is elected to represent unless they are in agreement with his special interest agenda’s.

Democrat Jim Moeller Boasts About Republican Accomplishment in Clark County

by lewwaters

Moeller, Clark County Leads

The above was put up by Jim Moeller, D 49th Legislative District on his facebook page. Perhaps he forgot all of the times he has complained and whined about Clark County being under the yolk of a Republican majority, even though the state legislature is a Democrat majority.

Or does he believe he is so wonderful that his district alone accomplished this feat?

Smoke & Mirrors Offered

by lewwaters

Moeller, Wylie Townhall

How many years have we been telling especially Moeller what is important to us and being ignored?

How many times have said the 2/3 supermajority for tax increases is important to us only to have Moeller join in a lawsuit against us to invalidate our votes on it?

When was the last time either Jim Moeller or Sharon Wylie gave a damn about anything other than furthering the leftist agenda?

Union Rage or Experience? Our Choice

by lewwaters

Washington’s 49th Legislative District is fairly well known as a stronghold for liberal Democrats on par with the Puget Sound. Democrats in the 49th continue to be elected time and again, in spite of it also having some of the highest taxes, highest unemployment rate and lags behind the rest of the state.

With the announcement from State Senator Craig Pridemore that he was not going to seek reelection, Democrats have enlisted and promote Annette Cleveland to run for that open seat. But, who is Annette Cleveland? What does she have to offer us? What political experience does she bring to the campaign?

In answer to the last two questions, very little other than her claims of assisting the Vancouver Chamber, C-TRAN and supporting far left Democrat Patty Murray at WSU.

With a résumé that thin, we have very little to go on other than what we hear her say in her campaign speeches, such as her description of what formed her “Foundational Beliefs” from her 2012 Clark County Democrat convention speech

Megalomaniac Jim Moeller Fires A Shot Across Lou Brancaccio’s Bow

by lewwaters

The arrogance of 49th Legislative District Representative, Jim Moeller is well known amongst both supporters and opponents. In fact, he is about the most arrogant person I have ever met and I have met a lot of people over my years. His deeds and actions are classic examples of a Megalomaniac, someone “characterized by delusional fantasies of power, relevance, or omnipotence with an inflated sense of self-esteem and overestimation of their powers and beliefs.”

But his arrogant ‘shot across the bow’ aimed at the Columbian and editor Lou Brancaccio in Lou’s Saturday, October 27, 2012 Press Talk column, I love the 49th District!!! is so blatant it initially even took me by surprise.

Considering that the Columbian has endorsed Jim Moeller in every single one of his successful bids for state office, they frequently editorialize in opposition to his stance on many issues, mostly tax increases and wage and benefit increases for public union employees, while the private sector continues to struggle and tighten our belts.

Lou Brancaccio’s “War on Women”

by lewwaters

There is a reason pencils all come with erasers. We all make mistakes and get something wrong from time to time and responsible people will correct errors they make. None of us are above making errors and getting something wrong or even relaying something we thought we heard that actually was not what the other person said.

Newspapers especially have a commitment to the public to ‘get it right’ and often we see retractions or corrections published when they don’t. Let’s face it, reporters are only human and make mistakes and when such an error is pointed out, it is incumbent upon them to make such corrections.

Apparently not at the Columbian, though.

We all know the Columbian, the unofficial daily newsletter for the CRC & Democrat Party and their bias towards the left. But the email copied to me between Republican candidate for the 49th Legislative District, Carolyn Crain and Columbian editor Lou Brancaccio just boggles my mind.

While Constituents Struggle, Jim Moeller Frets Over Liz Pike’s Position on R-74

by lewwaters

It has long been known that Jim Moeller is pretty much a single issue representative, wanting first and foremost to promote what he refers to as “equality” for homosexuals. As we saw in the legislative session earlier this year, a $1.5 Billion budget gap took a back seat to ram-rodding a homosexual marriage bill through, wasting half of the session and causing the legislature to have to enter special session after Republicans and 3 Democrats stopped yet another Democrat inspired “kick the can down the road” hurry-up budget.

Continuing in that mindset, several times now Moeller has hounded Republican candidate for the 18th Legislative District, Liz Pike to state her position on Referendum 74, a measure to be voted on in November statewide to allow voters to say whether or not homosexuals in Washington State should marry.

Arrest Made Over Email Threats Against GOP Candidate (Updated)

by lewwaters

Earlier, I had written a post that I took down, leading some to wonder why I revised it and possibly thinking I was changing information. I said then that the reasons would be revealed shortly. I hope this short post will explain to those who were wondering. The original contained reference to this incident that was premature in releasing on my part as I had mistakenly assumed the man was already arrested.

I received word by phone early this morning that a person, 50 year-old Gary Owen, who had been sending threatening emails to Republican 49th Legislative District candidate Eileen Qutub had been arrested on suspicion of two counts of malicious harassment, a Class C felony.

Owen, obviously not a supporter, indicates extreme anger over receiving a campaign mailer in the mail and instead of just throwing it out, as a sane person would do, sent the following email,
