Lazy C’s Rice Goes Petty

by lewwaters

Okay, I get that all down at the Lazy C, Stephanie Rice and Lou Brancaccio especially, hate State Senator Don Benton (R 17) with a passion. We all get it and know they will stop at nothing to embarrass or demean the 5 times elected Senator. But this latest smear effort takes the cake.

Communication is key, spelling is secondary

Yes, Benton did the dastardly deed, he misspelled something.

And, we all know the Lazy C has never misspelled anything in print or online, right?

Well, as a matter of fact, no their spell checks aren’t so clean.

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. 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.

Hypocrisy of the Highest Order

by lewwaters

Referring back to the smear effort against me of late over exposing the secretive effort of Christian Berrigan to selectively “create a situation where THEY OFFER to withdraw,” the utter hypocrisy of the effort and the subsequent smear is evident in an interview of Berrigan when he ran for WSRP Chair last year.

You can view the full interview at Victory Girls, a blog that I have the utmost respect for.

VG: What will you do to combat the corruption and back room dealings so prevalent in the WSRP and RLCWA?

CB: First and foremost, be intolerant of it when it occurs. Culturally, educate our party leaders as to how that kind of activity demoralizes, deflates and discourages our grassroots. Show them examples of how some of our best people get alienated when they are treated unfairly. Demonstrate how fair play makes defeat more palatable, and makes it easier for people to cooperate after a loss. Systemically, codify reforms into our state bylaws where appropriate, and encourage counties to take similar action appropriate to them. Personally, I will not tolerate the temptation to use power or position to manipulate an outcome. Our intra-party battles must be waged on a level playing field or we will continue to alienate members and thereby destroy ourselves.

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.

Jim Moeller Discusses “Polarization”

by lewwaters

Once again, Jim Moeller’s spoken words are at odds with his written words.

I can’t think of a more polarizing figure in the legislature than Jim Moeller (D. 49)

Harry Reid Remarks on the Senate Filibuster

by lewwaters

Reid 1As expected, Senate majority leader, Democrat Harry Reid invoked the “nuclear option” ending filibusters against Obama’s activist judicial nomination.

Speaking on the Senate Filibuster, Reid said,

“Since 1790, the filibuster has been employed hundreds and hundreds of times.

Senators have used it to stand up to popular presidents. To block legislation. And yes – even to stall executive nominees.

The roots of the filibuster can be found in the Constitution and in the Senate rules.
========================
Mr. President, the filibuster is a critical tool in keeping the majority in check. This central fact has been acknowledged and even praised by Senators from both parties.

Obama’s Message to Unions

by lewwaters

I wonder just how many walk-outs he called for as a community agitator, organizer?

Barack, a wise old saying goes, “caution, place brain in gear before putting mouth in motion.”

Common Sense Goes Out the Window in Olympia

by lewwaters

Crowd 03The deadline for bill cut-off passed yesterday in Olympia, Washington meaning, if the bill did not pass out of committee, it’s dead. Seeing some of the bills that did make it out of committee, while others were allowed to, or made to die is very disconcerting. It’s as if common sense has no place in our state legislature.

Probably the most needed bill, Liz Pike’s HB 1788 that would have permitted local school districts to decide on their own if qualified, licensed and properly trained teachers would be permitted to arm themselves to defend students should a shooter access the school, bypassing several layers of security and violating every existing gun law, as happens in every school shooting, was allowed to languish, dying in committee as chairs did not even wish to discuss it.

Troubling in this is that the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Seattle Democrat Rep. Jamie Pedersen, stated that he “was not receptive to the bill.” What is troubling, if not downright hypocritical, Pederson has the right to carry a firearm inside the Capitol, concealed on his body during session as there is no effort to end the legislator’s right to defend themselves on the floor of the legislature.

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.

Brancaccio Reveals Truth, Agreeing With Him Is ‘Nonconstructive’

by lewwaters

Winston Churchill famously said, “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.”

Who knew that Columbian editor, Lou Brancaccio would present a perfect example proving the truth behind those words?

As we know, Lou does a regular Saturday column, “Press Talk.” In his Saturday November 17, 2012 column, Of good people and listening more, he is talking about a recent Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation’s Authors & Illustrators Dinner and Silent Auction he attended featuring “New York Times best-selling author Nicholas Sparks” as guest speaker.

Lou goes on to lament of what he got out of the talk, mentioning “volunteering” for doing something “rewarding” and in the bigger picture he asks, “Where do we go from here?”

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.”

Of ‘Self Inflicted Wounds’ and ‘Fairly Horrible Experiences’

by lewwaters

Once again, we see the bias in favor of the Democrats that the Columbian says doesn’t exist, displayed so brightly it nearly blinds. We saw it early last year as Democrat Jim Jacks abruptly abandoned and walked out on constituents in mid-session as editor Lou Brancaccio maintained there “was no paper trail” to follow to get to any story on his quitting the position he had just been elected to.

I contrasted that to the Richard Curtis saga just a couple years before in a blatant display of bias.

We once again can see it displayed as just a few months ago, the Clark County Republican Party was taken to task over sanctions set in place against County Commissioner Marc Boldt who frequently went against his stated position in campaigning as a Republican to be elected to the County Commission.

Of course, the Columbian did not bother to say anything until months after the sanctioning that I know they had to be well aware of as they were mentioned on this blog in November 2011 and Columbian follows both this blog and Clark County Politics to see what we are up to.

Can There Be A Bigger Hypocrite in Olympia than Jim Moeller?

by lewwaters

Jim Moeller was first elected as Washington State 49th Legislative District Representative in 2002 by a comfortable margin. He ran again, winning in what we could consider landslide margins in 2004, 2006 & 2008, but slipped in 2010, although still winning to be returned to Olympia. Prior he was twice elected to the Vancouver city council.

Ten years in the legislature and twice elected to city council before that seems to have Jim feeling pretty cocky, considering himself to be “the voice of the people” while discounting the people’s own voice.

Celebrating the recent Superior Court ruling against the people’s voicing yet again that we want a 2/3 majority vote for increasing taxes, we see Jim saying,

“this decision places the accountability for this fundamental civic responsibility squarely where it belongs: with the people’s voice — the Legislature.”

In justifying his turning against the overwhelming voice of the people, over 71% of us who voted for I-1053, the fourth time we have sent the legislature the message we want a 2/3 majority required to increase taxes on us, Jim Moeller also said,

“We are a constitutional republic based on the democratic principle of ‘one man, one vote’. The hardest thing for the right-wing to accept is that THEY DO NOT REPRESENT THE PEOPLE. Instead they exhibit the worst kind of arrogance towards the people – the disdain for those ELECTED by the people and sworn to uphold and protect the constitution – the ultimate voice of the people and the supreme law of the land.”

Ever Hear of Glass Houses, Mayor Guard?

by lewwaters

Like others, I pay little attention to Washougal, Washington. Oh, I’ve taken stabs at city council member Jon Russell at times over his intense desire to climb the political ladder, but let’s face it, not much happens in Washougal to draw much interest from those of us who live outside of it.

Washougal’s mayor Sean Guard is another I rarely mention or pay much attention to as he is, well, quite boring in his term as mayor. But sometimes, I have to step out of my comfort zone to write about something so blatantly hypocritical, I can’t let it pass.

Such is the case now seeing Mayor Guard’s hypocritical public stand towards Republican County Commissioner Tom Mielke being 3 whole days late on paying property taxes.

‘Baghdad’ Jim McDermott Divorcing, Asks for his Privacy to be Respected

by lewwaters

In what must go down as one of the most hypocritical comments ever spoken, Washington Democratic congressman Jim McDermott has announced he and his wife of 14 years are divorcing. He issued the statement, “The end of a marriage is difficult and painful. This is a personal matter and I hope you will respect our privacy.”

KOMO News

McDermott it should be remembered, fought unsuccessfully for several years against charges he “violated federal law by turning over an illegally taped telephone call to reporters” in 1996, violating the civil rights of now Speaker of the House John Boehner.

McDermott leaked the illegally obtained phone conversation between Boehner and then Speaker Newt Gingrich to the New York Times. He was ordered to pay more than $700,000.

McDermott had no respect for others privacy and now that he might be embroiled in scandal, depending on the reasons for his wife divorcing him; he asks that his privacy be respected?

That is hypocrisy at the highest level.
