[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.

“If you ask it of me, I will give you the One Ring.”

In The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkein, by allegory, demonstrates spiritual mechanics that have operated within and around the Liberty Movement.

Midnight_ConspiracyAct I (of RLCWA State  Convention in Four Acts):   

 The “Agenda” and conspiracy

As we chronicled in Lord of the RLC #8: Flotsam and Jetsam, the run-up to the State Convention was dominated, first by Clayton Strang’s prosecution of Ron Paul’s Life principle, opposed notably and with great effort by Matt Dubin. That Facebook debate was quickly attended by the expression of considerable back-channel consternation by Sandi Belzer Brendale, who very clearly wanted Clayton (not Matt) to shut up and the debate to disappear. That created serious doubts about whether Sandi would attempt Sotelo/Young/Esser/Wilbur-style means of accomplishing her aims through parliamentary skullduggery. (more…)

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…)

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…)

Someone found this letter floating through the clouds from Mr. Dubin in Seattle. He is an attorney, a good one it is rumored.dubin-closer

He is also the new chair of the King County Washington RLC, the infant child of the old RLC, the Republican Liberty Caucus… another one of those ‘GOP excitements’ which has been hanging around the shadows of the GOP for over twenty years.

Having served out it’s usefulness apparently, long ago, the RLC became arguably invisible, sitting on the shelf alongside dozens of other hulks which, like great ships, are left with but two elements of value… their license, and their hulls!
RLCWA-kingAs providence would direct, the RLC appeared to have life literally breathed back into it’s lungs when 35 years of Congressman Ron Paul labor suddenly sprouted blossoms and began a mostly harmonious fruit-bearing, starting with the 2008 election season. Fast forward to the recent formation of the much hoped for branch of that Ron Paul Liberty Tree, manifest in the organization of RLCWA. The enormous King county provided the vibrant and rich soil seemingly perfect for a portion of that tree. But shadows might have crept across the horizon, or do they not? (more…)
