Shane Train Gets Desperate

by lewwaters

Shane Gardner, Madore Endorses AtkinsIs the Shane Train really so desperate that one of Gardner’s supporters ordered up a bunch of these signs then sets them up around town at Atkins signs and sets up a phony David Madore’s Friends page??

Do you want a Sheriff that is silent over such dirty, underhanded tactics from his supporters?

If he allows such dirty behavior now, how much dirty behavior will he ignore as Sheriff?

Atkins is also endorsed by Mayor Tim Leavitt, former Mayor Royce Pollard, and Tony Golik. It is said that the signs were purchased by a young Democrat named Pond that also set up the phony facebook page, David Madore’s Friends.

UPDATE: I am now informed that Pond has been placing these signs at other Republican candidates signs as well as Vote No on the Charter signs.

Slick Used Car Salesman Tactics Promoting the CRC Lemon

by lewwaters

Car Sales 1Next to a politician, a car salesman ranks as one of the shiftiest occupations someone can take. They will lure, lie, mislead, con and deceive people into buying a car. This is especially true when it comes to used cars.

It also appears true when elected officials desire to sell taxpayers on an unneeded and unwanted project like the Columbia River Crossing light rail project from Portland, Oregon into Vancouver, Washington that voters have repeatedly expressed their opposition to, once directly and three times by proxy.

49th Legislative District Representative Jim Moeller seems to be the head salesman for this lemon as he tries to mislead voters with his campaign of disinformation exposed at Rep Jim Moeller’s Latest Act of Desperation, Lie.

Acting much like Car Fax, revealing the history of that cherry the salesman is trying to push off on you as really a lemon, concerned citizens began seeing the claims and numbers cited simply were not adding up and formed groups like StopCRC.com and CRCFacts.info adding to the revelations seen from Couv.com, opening citizens eyes and growing opposition.

How Desperate Is Tim Probst to Lie About His Opponent?

by lewwaters

Tim Probst, Democrat challenger hoping to unseat 4 time Republican Senator from Washington State’s 17th Legislative District is showing signs of realizing his chances of doing so are becoming increasingly dismal. Such realization seems to drive Probst to further violate the very “Clean Campaign Pledge” he boasted of signing and previously used to hammer Senator Benton over the head with.

This blog previously showed that Probst is known for such campaign tactics at Where Did Tim Probst’s Pledge of a “Clean Campaign” go?

What has to be desperation on Probst’s part, he seems to know have doubled down on such dirty campaign tactics.

Probst, violating his previous pledge against mudslinging, after declining to meet Senator Benton for an open debate on issues, unless the venue is in his favor, has opened up a “Fact Checking Don Benton” page on his website.

As we have seen previously, when Democrats decide to “fact Check” their opponents, “facts” are likely to be the last thing you will find. Tim Probst so called “Fact Check” page is no different.

Rehashing Old Charges Against Sen. Benton Reveals Tim Probst’s Hypocrisy

by lewwaters

Tim Probst and Sen. Don Benton

There is little doubt that the State Senate race in the 17th Legislative District is one of them, if not the hottest race in the state this election. It is no secret that Democrats have long sought to see Senator Don Benton, elected to the Senate 4 times now, ousted and a Democrat take his place.

Tim Probst, Representative for position 1 in the 17th was enticed to leave his fairly safe House seat and take on Benton, a hard charging and very effective Senator, even though he has been in the minority party his entire time in the Senate.

Evidence of the urgency for the Democrats to defeat Senator Benton comes from several areas, but one of the best would be the words from a Democrat candidate for the State Senate running against Senator Ann Rivers, Ralph Schmidt, who openly says he realizes he has no chance of winning.

Schmidt told the Columbian,

“I actually don’t have a lot of money. The party is supporting me some, but mostly the 17th (District) is like a vortex sucking up all the time and money, because that’s where the competitive races are.”

Would Monica Stonier Really Bring “Common Sense?”

by lewwaters

By all outward appearance, 17th Legislative District candidate for Representative, Monica Stonier is a lovely young lady and a good school teacher. But, she isn’t campaigning to be a teacher in Olympia, but a Representative of the people.

She has up an ad on facebook promising to “bring common sense solutions to government in Olympia.”

But, what “common sense” has she displayed so far?

Also by all appearances, she is a young lady hungry and eager to become a state representative. We know this as she was a candidate for the same seat in 2010, losing to Republican Paul Harris and not even gaining the endorsement of the very pro-Democrat newspaper, the Columbian, also known locally as the “unofficial daily newsletter for the Democrat Party” in that years’ primary election.

Using Reagan to Rehabilitate Obama?

by lewwaters

Those of us old enough to recall the Reagan years and after he left office, will readily recall how the media disliked our 40th president, Ronald Reagan. After nearly every speech, we were treated to Sam Donaldson coming on to let us know what he “really said.”

The media was only too quick to run with son Ron Jr.’s claim that Ronald Reagan had Alzheimer’s while in office just a few weeks ago, giving little credence to son Michaels’ counter claims that he did not.

In spite of that, Time magazine’s upcoming issue features a photoshopped cover of Reagan embracing Obama and an article The Role Model: What Obama Sees in Reagan
