Lazy C: Eulogizing and Hypocrisy

by lewwaters

Brancaccio FoolOur community suffered a grave loss last week with the death of John McKibbin and his passenger, Irene Mustain when McKibbin’s North American AT-6 crashed into the Columbia River.

I never had much interaction with McKibbin that I can recall, although I do believe our paths likely crossed at some community events, enabling me to once video tape him in his airplane, starting it, taxiing and later flying overhead.

A former County Commissioner, legislator and community leader, he was well liked and honored in the community and will be well remembered, I am certain. And by all accounts, an honorable man.

Lazy C in Hog Heaven

by lewwaters

Happy PigAlthough results will not be certified for several days, our local Democrat Party mouthpiece, the Lazy C (the Columbian) is elated to see their quest and hate of County Councilor, as well as tons of ink used since November 2012 bashing the duly elected County Commissioners they dislike has worked.

By all accord, controversial County Councilor David Madore was defeated as the Write-in Liz Pike campaign came in last in a three way race.

I did not support that campaign, not because of any problems I have with Madore or Liz Pike, I actually like and respect Liz, but because the campaign itself appeared more of like Sour Grapes since Madore failed in securing a spot in the primary to run for Council Chair.

Power of the Press? Or Obsessive Hate?

by lewwaters

Brancaccio GoebbelsAs expected, ol Lefty Lou Brancaccio is beside himself in glee and gayety due to the outcome of the primary election this week, evidenced in his latest screed, “Power of the press vs. Madore.”

While I stopped supporting Madore some time ago, I stopped relying on the Lazy C for accurate or truthful information long before that, seeing that under the tutelage of ol Lefty it amounted to little more than a daily mouthpiece for the Democrat Party, unworthy to even wrap rotting fish in.

But, Lefty is beside himself, boasting and basking in his successful hate filled smears.

Even Liberals have complained about his weekly obsessive hate filled rants and face it, Madore never shrunk back from giving ol Lefty all of the material he wanted to use.

Of Lefty Lou and Blake Washburn, a Tale of Two Editors

by lewwaters

HeraldEverybody is familiar with Lazy C editor, Lefty Lou Brancaccio and his ongoing obsession against two County Commissioners as well as a State Senator being named to head the County’s Department of Environmental Services, revealed of late twice weekly in Lefty’s tangents masquerading as editorials.

Lefty, to my knowledge, has never revealed an end goal in his screeds, other than to see these few people out of office and replaced by some more to the liking of the downtown mafia that tried desperately to stick the middle class in Clark County with Billions of dollars in debt for extending Portland’s financially troubled light rail into our community and that by all appearances, plans to resurrect that folly.

Even many on the left that share in Lefty’s disdain of the right groan at the weekly tedious, redundant tirades, many leaving comments to that effect under them.

Don’t Break Your Arm, Lefty

by lewwaters

Back Pat 2As expected, since County Commissioner Jeanne Stewart cast the vote defeating Commissioner Mielke’s ordinance, the Lazy C’s Lefty Lou Brancaccio can’t help but crow as if he and that dumbass coffee cup of his were responsible.

Let us recall that it was Lefty and his cronies that did everything they could to see her not win the election. And, they nearly succeeded.

I had no opinion on the ordnance itself, so how the vote went did not matter to me.

An Open Letter to Lefty Lou

by lewwaters

Brancaccio FiatFirst and foremost, Lou, lay off the retard pills!

Now, let’s get some things out in the open, shall we?

Your management of the local Pravda has done more harm to this community than anything I can think of. Your rants disdain and hostility towards those who dare believe differently than you reduces your “editorial talents” to that of a schoolyard bully.

Yes, I said B-U-L-L-Y!!

Lefty Lou, Thankful but Worried?

by lewwaters

Brancaccio FiatAfter Lefty’s usual token Thanksgiving editorial and the praise of his beautiful daughter, we see nothing of any real value. He should have stuck with praising his daughter and just left it at that.

But that is not Lefty as he tries to convince what few readers he still has of his relevancy. A relevancy he seems worried about.

I say worried because of you drop down to the end of his screed you read, “It’s true, we don’t have as many print readers as we used to. But when you include our social media numbers, it’s actually pretty close.”

It doesn’t dawn on him that delivering such an inferior product as we see daily in the Lazy C, many former readers have left seeking objective, balanced reporting elsewhere, no longer buying the paper he writes for and manages.

Lefty Lou’s Mental Disorder and Obsession

by lewwaters

Tits on a bullThis blog has repeatedly indicated how the editor of the local Daily Newsletter for the Democrat Party, the Columbian better known as the Lazy C, appears to be mentally challenged with some sort of disorder causing him to pay undo attention to only a few elected officials in the weekly Press Talk editorials.

Wondering whether or not I might be a little off in my estimation, I went back and looked through the archived editorials. Below are listed, by title, of a list of weekly editorials penned by Lefty that are either about or make a derogatory mention of one of the so-called “M&M Boys” or State Senator Don Benton (R 17).

I’ll leave it to readers to determine if Lefty has gone overboard in his denigrations since January 2012 when the County Commission majority changed to a more conservative majority.

The Push Is On! Updated

by lewwaters

Greg Jayne facetiously notes, in his Sunday Oct. 12, 2014 column, the Democrats Home Rule opposition from 2002 and mentions how things have changed since then.

Maybe he should have used some more recent quotes displaying opposition to the Home Rule Charter:

“When a wild goose chase clearly defines itself before it even begins, responsible travelers will decline to embark on the journey. Such is the case before Clark County commissioners as they ponder another expedition into the well-known futility of changing county government to a home rule charter.”

“But, as The Columbian wrote recently in an editorial, exploring the idea of a home rule charter would be a wild goose chase, seeking to solve problems that are nonexistent. This time, we’ll opt for a different animal analogy and reiterate that it would be a waste of time, money, and energy only to have voters beat this horse again.” Columbian Editorial, In Our View: Solutions … No Problems; March 19, 2013

Lefty Lou’s ‘Disonestà’

by lewwaters

Lou Brancaccio CountLooks like the Lazy C’s Lefty Lou Brancaccio is at it again. His Madore obsession once again floods his weekly Press Talk editorial and he attempts this time to smear a gracious and principled woman, Jeanne Stewart.

Lefty attempts the very link I warned others of, tying her to controversial County Commissioner, David Madore, just as was done last year when she was ousted from the Vancouver City Council only to be replaced by a rubber stamp for the downtown mafia.

Now, Lefty makes a fuss over Ms. Stewart accepting maximum donations from Madore and his wife, Donna of $950 each, as if that places her under Madore’s influence.

Newspaper Bullies and Hypocrites (updated)

by lewwaters

Columbian FishwrapBy now we all are aware of Lazy C editor Lefty Lou Brancaccio’s bullying and demeaning of those he despises every week in his so called editorials.

But this sort of over the top bullying from him is not something new, he’s done it many times before.

In fact, this blog called him on it back in November 2010 when a ‘Moderate’ Republican, the very thing he also calls for from Republicans, was the target of his vitriol over announcing he had cancelled his subscription: Lou Brancaccio and Chicago Bullying Tactics?

Might Brancaccio be the Biggest Fool in the County?

by lewwaters

Brancaccio FoolJust a thought, nothing I have spoken to Sen. Benton about, but the thought crossed my mind of what if he included the newspaper litter tax in the list of options solely to get under Lefty Lou’s skin and see him ranting and raving endlessly, leaving him looking the fool?

Benton is no dummy, in spite of what people think of him and he has shown in the past his ability to rankle nerves while he sits back and laughs.

And let’s face it, everybody knows any such litter tax is DOA and even if passed in the legislature, would be quickly overturned in the courts.

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.

2013

by lewwaters

2013The year 2013 will soon be relegated to the history books. It was a year filled with surprises, tragedy, happiness and sadness. We saw an established school burn to the ground, the very school that my two daughters once attended.

We saw changes being brought to bear in the county that brought controversy, even though many were changes that a majority of the voters wanted to see.

We saw the much hated CRC die, only to be resurrected, but now resting in limbo.

More than anything we saw the façade of objectivity collapse from around the Lazy C as they fabricated a theme to influence the Vancouver election demonizing County Commissioner David Madore and falsely linking him to candidates they did not like. They successfully relied on the complacency of many conservatives, ousting the main voice for the people on the city council.

Despicable Lefty Lou

by lewwaters

Lou Brancaccio CountApparently not content that the absolute lie created and perpetrated that much maligned County Commissioner David Madore was pulling strings in the last city election, Lazy C editor Lou Brancaccio now seems to feel the need to extend his demeaning verbiage to outgoing City Council member Jeanne E. Stewart in his latest screed.

Actually, “screed” might be too diplomatic, absolute piece of filthy garbage might be more accurate as his entire Saturday, November 23, 2013 editorial seems to be more an effort to rub Ms. Stewart’s nose in the mud over losing the election, after it was the Lazy C promoting the provable lie of Madore pulling strings.

Showing what a complete asshole he really is, Brancaccio uses his screed to boast of his confronting Ms. Stewart after the City Council meeting, since she did not provide words he apparently decided she must say during the meeting.

Who Was Bought in the Election?

by lewwaters

As the Lazy C created a falsehood of the election being all about Commissioner Madore and their braindead commenters chimed in with him “buying elections,” one thing you will not see in the pages of the Lazy C is just who was bought and paid for in the election. From the PDC reports:

Bought Election

Are we to believe that Madore, the “scourge” of Clark County according to Brancaccio, funded & bought all of the very people the Lazy C supported?

Vancouver, you been had!
