Motive Matters

by lewwaters

“Proposed changes in county charter could be awful.” Clark County Democrat Party, May 2011

“exploring the idea of a home rule charter would be a wild goose chase, seeking to solve problems that are nonexistent.” Columbian newspaper editorial, June 3, 2013

As seen above, Democrats especially and even the Lazy C have both adamantly opposed any change to how county government functions over the years. Both led campaigns that saw efforts rejected by voters in 1982, 1997, and 2002.

Another effort received little support in 2011, leading the Lazy C to proclaim in a Cheers & Jeers column,

Cheers: To county commissioners for putting an end to the home rule charter process this year. Inspecting methods of government is always a good idea, but there was no demonstrated need to elect a slate of freeholders to, in essence, draft a county charter that would replace the current system.”

Continued Lies, Deceit and Desperation in the 17th

by lewwaters

Tim Probst and Sen. Don Benton

The Democrats burning desire to steal Washington States’ 17th Legislative District away from the Republicans continues. The “Lies, Deceit and Desperation” previously noted not only continue unabated, but have grown.

As previously noted, Democrats have decided to throw just about everything except the kitchen sink into their effort to defeat 4 time State Senator Don Benton and have no conscience on how they do it, not that Democrats were ever known for having a conscience.

It is being reported that they have recently poured nearly $300,000 towards races in the 17th, primarily to defeat Benton and some to ensure union backed activist Monica Stonier defeats Ridgefield School Board President, Julie Olson, although we know Senator Benton is their primary target.

This blog indicated what can be expected in this mass effort to retain and grow Democrats control of our state. Flyers received last evening shows how misleading and deceptive they intend to be to ensure Tim Probst is installed to do their bidding the next 4 years.

Dems Plot Major Hit In The 17th

by lewwaters

Since they cannot compete in the arena of ideas or address real issues, it appears there is a major plot brewing against Republicans in the 17th Legislative District. Word has reached me that they have parked $85,000 for 17th District Independent Expenditures, likely for more vile attacks against Senator Don Benton and Julie Olson.

It has been shown previous that neither Democrat running and hoping to switch control of the 17th has any strong stand on issues affecting Southwest Washington and we have already seen several attacks ads with false claims being sent out against Senator Benton.

Even the Columbian, endorsing Democrat Monica Stonier inadvertently admitted Julie Olson is the better candidate, but endorsed Stonier due to her winning the primary election, forgetting that there was 2 Republicans and combining their vote’s amounts to nearly 2,000 more than Stonier received.

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.

UPDATED: More Columbian Bias Against Commissioner Mielke

by lewwaters

If there is anything you can make bank on in Clark County, it is the Columbian, the newspaper of record also known locally as the “unofficial daily newsletter for the Democrat Party” not missing a chance to slam Republicans like County Commissioner Tom Mielke while ignoring the missteps of RINO politicians like fellow County Commissioner, Marc Boldt.

We saw it clear as day when 4 months after being sanctioned by the Clark County GOP, they ran a series of negative articles against the CCGOP and defending marc Boldt over his numerous votes contrary to the conservative principles he campaign on to win the seat. Although they have admitted monitoring this blog and the Clark County Politics blog, who wrote of the sanctions when they happened, the Columbian seemed to ignore it until right after successful Vancouver businessman David Madore, another frequent target of their negative coverage, announced he would challenge Boldt for the seat.

Acting more like a spurned lover with a personal ax to grind than an objective reporter, the Columbian’s Stephanie Rice seems to take delight with any chance she can find to slam Commissioner Mielke, either in the pages of the Columbian or on their blog, All Politics is Local.

Secretary of Defense Warns: Bad War Press Hurts Obama’s Reelection Effort

by lewwaters

Sometimes, a headline is published that just makes the reader go “DUH!” Something so blatantly obvious you just have to wonder how long the rocket scientist who wrote took to figure out a simple and obvious truth.

Such is the case in a recent Stars & Stripes headline, Panetta to Warn That Bad Press Hurts War Effort.

Those of us who served in Vietnam, recalling how our service and effort over there was distorted, misreported, blown out of proportion and sometimes outright fabricated can look at such a headline and say, “ya think?”

Since the attacks of September 11, 2001 and the launch of the War on Terror in both Afghanistan and Iraq, we have repeatedly witnessed the lamestream media once again picking and choosing how they report our Troops efforts and service.

After the 9/11 Terrorist attacks, we invaded Afghanistan on October 7, 2001 to deny Al Qaeda a safe haven and seek capture of Osama bin Laden. October 30, 2001 saw the New York Times run A Military Quagmire Remembered: Afghanistan as Vietnam, already distorting our Troops actions.

Quagmire became a familiar description applied both to Iraq and Afghanistan while Democrats in the House and Senate joined in labeling the war “lost,”, a “quagmire,” “mismanaged” and even to the point of identifying our Troops as “cold blooded murderers,” as did now deceased Pennsylvania Democrat Representative Jack Murtha in 2006.
