From Steve Litzow [at his facebook page]:
On Thursday evening the Municipal League of King County presented me [Mr. Litzow] with the Warren G. Magnuson Memorial award. Sen. Ed Murray was also recognized for our bipartisan leadership during the 2012 legislative session including passage of the bill that created Washington’s marriage-equality law in February.
Kevin Stormans, owner of Ralph’s Thriftway, says he and his employees oppose abortion and will not stock the morning-after pill. Stormans acknowledges that his store may lose customers because of his value-based decision. [Ed. note: Storman's ordeal began four years ago.]
“All our family wants is the chance to keep doing what Ralph’s Thriftway has done for four generations: to serve our customers in keeping with our deepest values,” says Stormans. (Olympian, 11/27) (more…)
I have two close, long-time conservative friends with whom it is natural that I discuss the 2012 GOP Presidential nomination battle. They have problems with Ron Paul for all the typical reasons Conservatives do if they do. I got over them. The problems, I mean, not the friends… back in late 2007 and early 2008… when it took me FIVE articles to explain my endorsement of the stone the builders rejected.
Rick Perry looms in the distance for many Republicans, potentially the savior they always hoped for, the “next Reagan.” But what is this “distance” in which he looms? Why are my friends merely “interested” in him and not trying to find his state campaign headquarters to join?
by Karen McCall, PCO
[From the email underground, this letter to Lori Sotelo came to The Reagan Wing as a comment to another article.]
My name is Karen McCall – PCO in the 31st District. I have been a PCO for over 20 years. I am very unhappy with what has happened during this election time. According to the KCGOP PDC reports, the State Senate Caucus passed through the KCGOP $115,000.00. You gave the money to four Republican State Senate Candidates who had never been elected before including $33,000.00 to Steve Litzow in the 41st District.
Steve Litzow was endorsed by, and sits on the board of, the Washington State National Abortion Rights Action League Political Action Committee. As you well know, NARAL is radically fanatic about abortion on demand, anywhere, anytime, anyplace, taxpayer funding, no parental notification, on and on ad nauseum. They go against everything we stand for as Republicans.

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
On August 15, 2010 The Reagan Wing published an open letter from State Senator Val Stevens that took “Pastor” Joe Fuiten to task for his email attempt to shore up Dino Rossi’s shrinking pro-life support by obscuring the truth.
Val pointed out numerous misleading statements and falsehoods Fuiten had made, on Rossi’s behalf, to cover up Dino’s vote to force hospitals—private hospitals, Catholic hospitals, ALL hospitals in Washington, in fact—to dispense abortifacient drugs to rape victims under the demonstrably false claim, implicit in the bill itself (SB 6537), that they only act as contraceptives.
Now Fuiten has fired back with “Joe Fuiten Sets the Record Straight” and this 2400+ word article is a doozie. (more…)

The Washington Life Coalition (WLC) released a brand new internet video today to appeal to pro-life voters in the state of Washington who have been led to believe they should support Dino Rossi in his bid for U.S. Senate. The video chronicles some of Rossi’s statements on the issue of abortion, and then reveals an egregious vote that Rossi cast as a state senator, overlooked by the pro-life movement in Washington. The news of this vote calls into question Rossi on an issue he refers to as “a matter of conscience.”
In 2002, Dino Rossi voted for SB 6537 which forces hospitals to promote “emergency contraception” to rape victims and provide it upon request within 72 hours of sexual contact. Emergency contraception, also known as ”the morning after pill,” causes an abortion if the woman is pregnant. The bill passed and is now the law in WA state. Physicians, nurses and health care workers in hospital emergency rooms are forced to act against their conscience, which is formed by their professional training as well as their moral, ethical and religious views.

Dino Rossi, one of the challengers to Democrat incumbent Patty Murray, is widely believed to be “pro-life” and “opposed to abortion”.
What many pro-life voters may not realize, is that Dino Rossi, in his two runs for governor, never received the endorsement of Human Life of Washington, the only pro-life organization in Washington state that surveys (in writing) all candidates for state and federal offices on the issue of abortion. The same is true this year as Dino seeks a spot on the general election ballot to challenge Patty Murray: He has not received the Human Life endorsement. In fact, Human Life of Washington issued a dual endorsement in the U.S.Senate race to: Paul Akers and Clint Didier, having both met the criteria. (Endorsements have not yet been listed on Human Life of Washington’s website, but the press release went out recently).
Human Life of Washington does not endorse candidates who support legalized abortion, even in the hard cases of rape and incest. Dino Rossi believes abortion should be legal in cases of rape and incest. (more…)
If you are one of the constituents who have been frustrated at the complete reliability with which Dave Reichert’s duties in Washington DC interfere (at the last minute, through no fault of his own) with his many attempts to address the voters (actually, Congressman Reichert has never held an in-person Town Hall Meeting for his constituents, Seattle Times, August 17. 2007), your chance may have arrived.
I stepped back against the door I had just closed behind me. The nice white exam room was awash in blood…splattered blood. Like some perverted artist who had dipped his paint brush in a gallon of crimson red paint and hap-haphazardly flung it all up and down the walls and across the ceiling… and this poor girl! She was laying there in obvious shock; shaking violently.. and splattered all over with her own blood…and her baby’s! Doctor was in his customary position with forceps in both hands swearing up a storm and feverishly attempting to extract – “it”.
While Attorney General Rob McKenna runs around thestate beating his breast about shutting down Meth labs, his home town of Bellevue, Washington is the site of a human slaughterhouse. If you call his office and ask where he stands on abortion, he’ll tell you he “supports a woman’s right to choose at every opportunity.”
Mr. McKenna wants to be governor.
If he supports this kind of butchery against children and women, do you really think he cares about you? (more…)
Poor Belkis Gonzalez. She was the innocent terminator. You have to look at it from her perspective.
Gonzalez is the Arabic/Mexican woman owner of the Florida Abortion Women’s Health Clinic, in the news recently that is being so poorly treated by conservative media. They are demanding she be criminally prosecuted! (more…)
Opening morning of the 2008 Republican State Convention, Dave Reichert gave a speech specifically designed to taunt Ron Paul supporters, claiming, over and over again, loudly, that the Party was united behind Illegal Amnesty and Environmentalist Energy Rationing (Cap and Trade) proponent John McCain (who had not yet been nominated, even illegally). He first drew boos. Liking that, he repeated himself, working to drive a wedge into the heart of the Party. Then a chant of simply “RON PAUL, RON PAUL, RON PAUL” shook the convention floor. The chant was so loud, audio of the event was altered by officials of the State Party prior to public posting to erase the record.

…an enemy outside your camp (Hillary) makes you vigilant; an enemy inside your tent (Rudy) makes you dead. He can cut your throat in the night, or poison your food in the day. Rudy will slowly destroy the meager gains we have made, and will set the core of the GOP at war with itself. He will set the pro-life movement back 20 years… (more…)

Politics Jaded. Prayer Works. Who Knew?
It started Sunday, November 4th. Fred Thompson, the man whom many conservatives hoped would be “the next Ronald Reagan”, committed the un-Reaganesque thumbing of nose at the pro-life plank of the Republican Party platform. It happened on “Meet the Press”. Tim Russert, his persistent interviewer, read the entire plank aloud, and asked for Thompson’s position on it. He opposed it. It was a serious blow to many of his pro-life supporters.
Committed pro-lifers who are fairly new to the 30 year debate over how best to strategically end legalized abortion, might consider his mere opposition to supporting a Human Life Amendment to the U.S. Constitution acceptable, especially in light of his support for overturning Roe vs. Wade. If one considered it long enough, one would realize that his position, supporting the overturning of Roe, and then leaving it to the states, would have allowed slavery to continue in some states.
But it gets worse. When pressed, Thompson said, that although he believes that life begins at conception, and that abortion is the taking of a human life, he doesn’t believe it ought to be “criminalized” (read: made illegal).
The blow set off…. (more…)
Life of the Party exists to keep the Republican Party pro-life. To that end, complete information and commentary about Republican candidates for President, U.S. Congressional and U.S. Senate races, as well as state gubernatorial and legislative races can be found (there). These are the men and women who have the power to write our laws and decide whether or not we will protect innocent human life in our laws.
It is not usually within the scope of this endeavor to provide you with complete information on every city’s or county’s local race. But from time to time, Life of the Party may come across information that pro-lifers in Washington State would want to know about some of the local races.
This is one such time. NARAL has posted their endorsements, and pro-lifers might be surprised at some of the Republicans listed. You might even find one who’s been endorsed by someone you trusted to give you good pro-life information. Hopefully you see this before you fill out your ballots.
This was originally posted back in February at Life of the Party and caught broad attention from the pro-life community. Apparently one of the subjects missed it and so Jefferson Paine’s joke was lost on him. Note: The pig is not Eric, but NARAL and the pro-abortion movement. The lipstick on the other hand….
Have you noticed NARAL’s new shade of lipstick? They call it “Personal Responsibility” but we call it “Sounds Orange“. It’s the same old pig (abortion on demand) with a new shade of lipstick (euphemism) and they’ve chosen this one to appeal to conservative leaning, Constitution loving Americans.
NARAL and their friends at NOW and Planned Parenthood have always struggled with a PR problem. They have always known that the majority of Americans don’t like abortion, and in fact, find it unpleasant to think about, so they must find ways to mask it and dress it up. (more…)
The war for the soul of the Republican Party can arguably be traced as far back as the post-Civil War reconstruction period when it was waged largely over support for equal rights enforcement in the South. The pragmatists were “pro-choice” on racism.
The same historic theme, pragmatic (bi-partisan) self-interest versus principled ideals seems to continually repeat itself in the ongoing “war for the soul” of the Party.
In the late ‘1960s and throughout the ‘70’s that same war in Washington State found the pragmatic elite in control. Dan Evans became Governor in 1965 (after a slanderous campaign that implied his Italian-heritage opponent was a mobster), and his power elite included former legislative colleagues Joel Pritchard who ascended to the US Congress (and later, Lieutenant Governor) and ivy-league émigré Slade Gorton, heir of the Gorton’s Frozen Fish Fortune, who was Evan’s majority leader and became his Attorney General before joining him in the U.S. Senate.
Their campaigns were unethical, their politics more liberal than the Democrats they replaced, and they began an immediate (and notorious) war to drive conservatives out of the Republican Party. There is even some validity to the charge that they became Republicans because they were too liberal for the Democrats of that day. They were, as were their racist-facilitating predecessors, “Pro-Choice,” soft on criminal justice, worked hard to implement a state income tax and radical environmentalist legislation. They had tax-and-spend and sexually libertine views of the role of Government. Serial killer Ted Bundy fit in comfortably with their culture. (No, I’m not kidding, Bundy was a significant part of the Evans election team and Evans appointed Bundy to the Seattle Crime Prevention Advisory Committee.)
But the conservative remnants of Barry Goldwater’s presidential campaign stayed together to become a thorn in their side, especially with the emergence of Ronald Reagan who was like Kryptonite to these “strange visitors from a liberal planet.” Reagan’s victory in Washington State in 1976 and nationally in 1980 looked to be (and should have been) the death-knell of their leftist dominance of the GOP.
But stuff happens. What happened in this case was Jennifer Dunn. It is a tale of political metamorphosis so radical it could have been written as a story of genetic mutation by Marvel Comic’s mastermind Stan Lee.
Jennifer began her political life on the Ronald Reagan bandwagon and morphed into a despotic liberal-kingdom-building State Chair that by 1992 was having her political speeches produced by the radical Evans-ite, Joel Pritchard, the proud father of legalized abortion. But I’ve gotten a decade ahead of myself.
Jennifer Dunn was a 1963 Stanford University English Literature Graduate who happened to marry Dennis Dunn shortly before he spent six years as Chairman of the King County GOP (1970-’76). It was at a time when that was the most important Party office in the State, and he then ascended to the Republican National Committee. Jennifer used her husband’s offices to make contacts that she was later able to leverage to get appointed positions – even while dumping the man who had gotten them for her. In 1978 she got “section supervisor” in the office of Republican County Assessor Harley Hoppe and launched an intimate relationship with the Seattle Times’ chief political reporter, “liberal-centrist” Richard W. Larsen. His “bi-partisan” support for Jennifer carried with it an ability to spin the local media. He was of major assistance throughout her career. In 1980, she secured an appointment as 7th Congressional District Chair of Ronald Reagan for President. Also in ‘80, since Hoppe was on the verge of firing her, Jennifer, always an astute opportunist, rolled her (ineffective) Reagan position into a run for Washington State Republican Party Chair. Although she was relatively unknown her opponent dropped out suddenly at the last minute and she ended up being elected unopposed.
But Jennifer had already assured the State Committee that she was a pro-life, Ronald Reagan, conservative. Her Reagan roots were shallow, at best, and, as became obvious, her pro-life claim a total fabrication.
Almost from the date of her election Dunn made the State Chairmanship a field office for the enemies of conservative principle. When I walked into her State Party office for the first time Ronald Reagan Was President of the United States, but the pictures on the wall were of Dan Evans and Slade Gorton and their combined record of opposition to the Reagan agenda was already staggering at the time. They were to the left of the center… of the Democrat Party. This was a fence Jennifer was to straddle the balance of her entire career, her face on one side, her actions on the other.
In 1982 Dunn’s first Washington State Republican Convention as State Chair was held in the Tri-Cities. The Platform Committee was dominated by Reagan Conservatives from the 39 Counties and the platform they proposed to the Convention had a large, strong pro-life plank.
But when the “Proposed Platform” document was given to the delegates at sign-in, the Life Plank had disappeared.
It was completely gone. It caused immediate, major controversy and there was no plausible explanation. “Perhaps the page fell off the table when the document was collated,” was the best the State Party could invent. Pro-life activists were extremely skeptical, but were given assurances they could move to put it back in from the convention floor the next day.
The truth came out when King County Chair Jim Medley was entertaining breakfast guests the next morning and Jennifer invited herself to join. “What is the true story of what happened to that page?” asked Jim. “We couldn’t allow a plank like that,” said Jennifer, “it would be embarrassing to our contributors. It would hurt our fundraising too much.” There was a hint of insider conceit in her voice, the macho pride of a skillful thief.
Later, on the Convention Floor, contrary to her promise, Jennifer’s convention chair refused to recognize any pro-lifer to make a motion on the issue. The plank was defeated the only way it could have been – by cheating.
But we have not yet gotten, in the words of Paul Harvey, to “the rest of the story.” There is much, much more.
