The CCGOP Executive Board

by lewwaters

It is unknown just why, but the Clark County Republican Party chooses to not list who their executive officers sitting in control on the Executive Board are, completely unlike before and unlike the Clark County Democrats, but we do know who a couple are, in large part to their outspoken acts. We know Kenny Smith is Chair, Brenda Poletti is Vice-Chair and Christian Berrigan is what they have labeled Operations Director, whatever that is.

But I am also hearing from numerous sources of the recent appointment to the board of Katja Delavar, supposedly in a non-voting capacity to some seat.

With this nomination it would seem a dream from years ago is fulfilled of Katja successfully taking over the local party for Ron Paul as back in 2008, Katja, wife of ex-Washougal city council member and candidate again for the 3rd Congressional District Michael Delavar, was heard promoting strong pro Ron Paul stances in an April 10, 2008 interview with the 911 Truther group “American Underground Network,”

Delegate Vote Challenge in the 18th District Rebutted

by lewwaters

It comes as no surprise that the legal challenge launched, seeking the voiding of the delegates chosen in the 2012 Clark County GOP convention for the 18th Legislative District, amid allegations of irregularities and fraud was not well received by same, most notably the Ron Paul supporters who came out in the majority on delegates and face the danger of not being seated in the State GOP Convention to be held in Tacoma.

As I showed in the previous post, Delegate Vote Challenged, 18th District Could Lose All GOP Delegates, supporters of candidate Mitt Romney were not pleased with the convention outcome and have cried foul to the WSRP, launching the effort to void the delegates selected in the 18th Legislative District.

In a continuance of the exceptional organizational skills seen in Paul’s supporters, that was used to discover the weaknesses in the system and legally exploit them to their advantage, Washington state co-chair for the Ron Paul campaign and Clark County Delegation Chair, Katja Delavar has fired back, along with her husband, former Washougal City Council Member Michael Delavar both drafting their own rebuttals to the challenge and to be sent to the WSRP, here and here.

Delegate Vote Challenged, 18th District Could Lose All GOP Delegates

by lewwaters

The fiasco known as the 2012 Clark County GOP Convention may be over, but the results of it are far from done. Irregularities and questionable delegate votes has prompted at least 2 Mitt Romney supporters, who were credentialed delegates from the earlier caucuses to challenge to delegate selection in the 18th Legislative District where Romney, who won the caucus straw poll, ended up with very few delegates, while Ron Paul who didn’t fare well in the caucus came out with the majority of delegates to the state convention.

Much finger pointing and blaming of each other followed the close of the convention that ended up with Clark County Republicans only being able to send 75 delegates and no alternates to the state convention in Tacoma, instead of the allotted 94 delegates and 94 alternates.

There is not much sense in rehashing the blame game here as from where I sit it appears everybody had a share in the blame.

Ron Paul supporters initially received much of the blame, seeing the previously announced “caucus strategy” unfold all across the state and given that he ended up with the bulk of selected delegates after doing poorly in the caucus straw poll.

Clark County GOP Chair Brandon Vick ended up accepting blame for the fiasco.

Ron Paulies Rejoice: Gary Johnson Is Coming To Town

by lewwaters

Okay all of you starry eyed Ron Paul worshippers that haven’t heard yet, you have cause for rejoicing as you will soon have the opportunity to see and hear Gary Johnson, popular and well-like former governor of New Mexico and who many Libertarians feel is the “next Ron Paul.”

Johnson is slated to appear at Fort Vancouver High School, 5700 East 18th Street in Vancouver on the evening of February 5, 2010 at 6 PM for a “Training Seminar.”

If you arrive early, you may be able to participate in a “dignitary type reception” of sorts that “costs a bit more than the entry ‘suggested donation,’” as was stated to me by a self described luminary with Campaign for Liberty.

Johnson is billed as “a successful two-term governor who actually cut taxes and shrank state government” by “eliminating New Mexico’s budget deficit and reduced the number of state employees by more than 1,200” during the time he served as New Mexico’s governor, 1995 to 2003, stepping aside due to term limits.

He advocates the legalization of Marijuana and decriminalization of drugs, referring to the War on Drugs as “an expensive bust.” He does not advocate recreational drug use and strongly supports a “don’t do drugs policy,” he being a strong advocate of physical fitness, having climbed Mt. Everest in 2003 at the age of 50 and is also an “avid triathlete who runs extensively and abstains from all recreational drug use, caffeine, alcohol, and some sugar products.”

Johnson early on opposed the invasion of Iraq and now says “the mission in Afghanistan has crept away from finding Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda,” adding, “I don’t believe that our national security interests are being threatened in either location.”

In a very recent interview he said of National Security, “I believe we should pull out of [Iraq and Afghanistan] and return our focus to fighting terrorism. The focus needs to be protecting America.”

Like Paul, he advocates a “noninterventionist national security policy.”

As a Politico profile puts it, “and he shares some of [Ron Paul’s] libertarian alarmist views, but without the penchant for gold standard wonkiness.”

Johnson resisted efforts by Libertarians to draft him for a presidential run in 1999 citing his “political life will end when his second term expires in 2002.”

Johnson has now set up a website, Our America where you may purchase a signed copy of his book, “Seven Principles of Good Government” for $100.00 and another, Gary Johnson for America.

Johnson initiated a separation from his wife of 28 years, Dee in 2005, who died of “hypertensive cardiovascular disease” at the age of 54 the next year, according to an article appearing in the Santa Fe New Mexican, Feb 11, 2007.

The couple had 2 grown children, a son and a daughter.

Although some I have corresponded with see Johnson as the third coming, Ron Paul being the second, it remains to be seen if he can articulate pretty much the same message as Paul did in the 2008 election any better.

If, as Politico says, he doesn’t have the “penchant for gold standard wonkiness” that Ron Paul is noted for, he should fair much better in 2012.
