The following was received Wednesday afternoon in reaction to the recent Hutchison Note article (Part One and Part Two). The article has unleashed what has become, in some counties, a firestorm of grassroots anger and Old Guard Republican Establishment slander attacks on their own grassroots.

[We ended Part 1 of this tale having set the stage for a meeting Doug had told Susan they had to have as long ago as August 2013 when they ran into each other at the RLCWA board meeting in Ellensburg, which we reported on here. We continue as Susan and Doug sit down to begin their meeting...]

I went to see State Party Chair Susan Hutchison because I believed she had assumed that office with the opportunity to change the WSRP Culture of “Circle the Wagons” and defeat, but was in danger, instead, of being digested. What I really wanted was to crash through the door with an offer of salvation from the Terminator series:

Signing the dealI carried it with me as I approached the door of the Washington State Republican Party offices. It was printed on two sheets of 8-1/2 X 11 – 20 lb. bond.

time bomb puzzleI had to talk to Susan about it. It had been the most important thing on my mind for seven days. I knew time would be getting ahead of me. It couldn’t be put off. Even as I peered through the glass into the Party headquarters, unbeknownst to me, the Reagan Wing editor was in the process of queuing up an article by Phil Spackman that would set the clock ticking, but in my mind it was already ticking.

Hear Ye! king amnesty the thirteenth

The Prince is gone. Long live the Queen.

When last we visited Jeff Kent’s Neighborhood of Make Believe (5/3/08), Jeff had ridden through every village, middlesex and town in State Committee Land with the Royal proclamation that all loyal subjects must nominate “King Friday XIII” to protect America’s borders(!!!). In the Neighborhood of Make Believe, you see, the borders are protected by pretending they don’t exist.  (Read about it here. ) (more…)

[The author of this post has expressed that he in no way, shape, or form intends it as a commentary on either newly elected WSRP Chair Susan Hutchison or  former Vice (and former acting) Chair Luanne Van Werven.  He further specifically disavows any claim, (inadvertently implied – or imaginatively imputed by adversaries) to being an attorney. ~~ Ed.]

State committee.

“The state committee of each major political party consists of one committeeman and one committeewoman from each county elected by the county central committee at its organization meeting. It must have a chair and vice chair of opposite sexes. This committee shall meet during January of each odd-numbered year for the purpose of organization at a time and place designated by a notice mailed at least one week before the date of the meeting to all the newly elected state committeemen and committeewomen by the authorized officers of the retiring committee. At its organizational meeting it shall elect its chair and vice chair, and such officers as its bylaws may provide, and adopt bylaws, rules, and regulations.”

Grays Harbor Insiders complete political assassination of newly elected chairman

R. Clayton Strang

Beth DeVaul ran against Michael Thompson for Chair at the Grays Harbor [County] Republican Party organization meeting in January, where Thompson won.

DeVaul  and ThompsonSome people don’t give up.

ELEPHANT shot in redfootSomething important just happened, and you may have missed it.  Of course, with all of the goings on in the WSRP lately, it’s no wonder!  We have the Republican Liberty Caucus of Washington imploding and the WSRP State Committee  voting to cancel the 2014 Convention.  Add to that the recent scandals that President Obama and his administration are involved in, and of course your attention was diverted! But there was Washington State Republican blood on the floor in May.

Dubin and Bolyard checkmate RLC, defeat Ron Paul’s principles

tumblr_mh9699ZuQZ1s30gcpo1_400On Saturday, April 27, the Republican Liberty Caucus of Washington held its first Convention [at least the first of the current charter; the National RLC has been around (with appearing and disappearing State Charters) for more than 20 years].

The explosion of members in Washington State before the Convention might be attributed to a number of factors, but among them must be the salutary efforts of its leadership team, its chair, Sandi Belzer Brendale, and the resounding send-off given by the “Freedom Agenda” State legislators at the RLCWA Kickoff. That group, highlighted by Matt Shea, also included David Taylor, Jason Overstreet and Elizabeth Scott. Their speeches at the Kickoff were inspiring and so wonderfully out-of-character for politicians (they were principled), it is fair to call them astonishing.

But the key element in making the RLCWA (for a time) the fastest growing State Charter in America, in our opinion, was the vacuum left after the Ron Paul Presidential Campaign, by the Campaign for Liberty’s  top-down national leaders. The question  continually asked during 2008 by anyone who saw the enormous raw strength of the movement was, “What happens to this political force when the campaign is over?” (more…)

Editor’s note: This article was written within 48 hours of the first day of business at the 2012 Washington State Republican Convention in Tacoma and uploaded to The Reagan Wing, where it has waited for nearly a year, although regularly revisited by our staff… Like the story of the Republican Liberty Caucus Kickoff in January 2013, Something held us back from publishing …until now. The author, was an eyewitness to the events discussed in Lord of the RLC #9: The Silmarillion Secret. This article is published now as a response to the comments of  Michael & Katja Delavar.

Book Tolkien Silmarillion AST Russian Hardcover 2000Editor’s introduction: The Silmarillion is J.R.R. Tolkien’s history, in five parts, of the First Age of Middle-Earth – essential background material for readers of the  Lord of the Rings saga. We’ve appropriated its title and format for similar purposes in our current series, continuing the Lord of the Rings metaphor that has – eerily – become a living allegory for the GOP and its relationship to the conservative movement, the libertarian movement, and the Pro-life Fellowship of the latter two (who, like elves and dwarves, previously had little use for each other) that was created by the candidacy of Ron Paul.

The metaphor was originally conceived by Doktor Jeep, who is, among other things, a Rreagan Wing author, in two prescient sentences  that foreshadowed all the consequences to which the series is leading. This chapter (#9 in the series), like The Silmarillion, covers enormous narrative history, in what here can only  be summary. There is a lot of detail and documentation of which the following is only a synopsis. But this is one of the most significant synopses we’ve ever published. It contains the names (in bold) of the six (6) key destroyers of the Ron Paul and Rick Santorum Presidential hopes in Washington State. (more…)

roanoke podium wilburIn his reelection/inaugural speech on Jan. 19th, State GOP Chair, Kirby Wilbur, announced, “I voted for Mitt Romney and Rob McKenna and I’m not ashamed because the worst Republican is better than the best Democrat!”

It could have been a fitting introduction to the Roanoke Conference six days later. Because for three days, Wilbur – and the  Conference – pondered how the Party could continue to run Washington State’s worst Republicans – the kind for whom Wilbur has worked overtime securing nominations – and still find a way to stop  their epidemic of losses to the best Democrats. *

And over the course of the Conference the latest “New Direction” emerged. (more…)

In the hands of Midstream Republicans the fortunes of the Washington State Republican Party have gotten worser and worser. And at periodic low points (like 1992, 1996,  2004,  2006, 2008, 2010, and 2012) Party Bosses predictably regroup, post-election, to contemplate their navel, blame conservatives, paint a happy face on their own performance, conclude that they must move even further left, and promise that under their leadership success is just around the corner .CRUISE SHIP GROUNDED


It always happens.


Any seasoned Washington State Conservative could simply read the list of speakers to know that the Roanoke Conference had planned just such a series of meditations in disingenuous Republican liberalism for the Ocean Shores Convention Center the weekend of Jan. 25–27. Fans of that movement could not have been disappointed.

What have they been smoking? (more…)

There is no question that when you are alone, you have a private moment. Beyond that, there is considerable debate.

Luke Esser and Lori Sotelo announced that masterfully in 2008 and were able thereby to prevent the State Convention and the King County Party, respectively, from interfering with what Luke and Lori wanted to do… uh… privately.

But today Washington State Republican Party Chair Kirby Wilbur, by law, had to stand for election for state party chair and he had two qualified opponents.

wilbur micWe know through private channels that Washington State Republican Party Chair Kirby Wilbur always carries a concealed firearm.

However we know from public experience, that he does not, in practice, support the right of others to do so.

The Second Amendment was one of many casualties of Kirby’s stewardship of the 2012 Washington State Republican Convention and Caucus process.

Mr. Wilbur, in every possible way, treated that process as though its sole purpose was to anoint the candidacy of Mitt Romney and Rob McKenna by any means necessary.

When Kirby Wilbur ran for Chair of the Washington State Republican Party, there were two possibilities. The Reagan Wing began to consider them each here.

Show us the money, Kirby.
At the August state committee meeting in Pasco, a mere handful of “Republicans,” without input from, or notice to, the grassroots Party members they are supposed to represent,  “nominated” candidates for statewide office.


What difference does it make?

How has the party provided money for those candidates? Did they actually vote on that? (more…)
