Why Spokane. Why now.

By Mike Vanderboegh

Anthony arrested2

Anthony under arrest

One of my best friends called me up yesterday to urge me, to plead with me, not to go to Spokane. He had a lot of reasons why. One point he raised was that some in the open carry/We Will Not Comply movement seem to be determined to become “scarier than the people they oppose” by “dressing like operators in Iraq” and “wearing masks and clown get-up.” He pointed out the long-ago critique of a leftist looking back on the anti-war movement who bemoaned that they lost the larger argument when the anti-warriors, through riots and Weatherman actions, “became scarier than the Vietnam War itself.” Anthony, I pointed out, was dressed in a suit and tie. “Yeah,” he retorted, “but the press didn’t run his picture, did they?” He has a point.

tank man[Reagan Wing staff began Saturday  hoping for information from Anthony Bosworth and Gavin Seim, our eyes and ears at the Bundy Battlefield. There were no messages. We knew a meeting between Sheriff Gillespie and Cliven Bundy was scheduled for 9:00 AM. Our last communication  from Anthony was at 1:22AM. We began to monitor the news feeds, alternating checking Anthony and Gavin’s FaceBook pages. We learned of an apparent deal brokered by the sheriff.  Internet problems inhibited  viewing  Gavin’s live feed of the sheriff’s announcement and Bundy’s response. At 11:05 AM Anthony  posted photographs. Moments later, Gavin posted this:

Urgent. People are mounting up with guns and appear to be heading to retake the the cattle and block I-15. Things are not looking good.

THE GINGRICH BETRAYAL

Steve Largent, 1995, when confronted by Newt Gingrich, who was furious that Largent had voted against Newt’s bureaucratic pork bill:

“The Speaker tonight talked about the eleven of us letting the team down. The more significant question and the question that never gets asked in Washington, D.C., is whose teams are we on?”

By Rob Chase, Spokane County Treasurer Elect and PCO

It is no secret there are two factions vying for control of the Republican Party, Conservatives and Moderates, and this is true even at the local level. This battle goes back to Goldwater and Reagan vs Rockefeller and Bush. Conservatives champion the Constitution and limited government, while Moderates strive for bi-partisanship, consensus, and mediocrity.

The local Moderates take their orders from Bellevue and are trying to
shut down the grassroots of freedom in Spokane County because they
believe the GOP should be directed from the top down, rather than from the grassroots. In 2012 they will try to shove Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich down our throats just as they did with John McCain in 2008 (Global Warming – Lieberman-McCain Climate Stewardship and Innovation Act, an F grade from Gun Owners of America
http://gunowners.org/mccaintb.htm, and traitor to over 600 POW’s left
behind in Vietnam http://amconmag.com/article/2010/jul/01/00010/),
and more recently, the tepid Senatorial Candidate Dino Rossi.

But the Moderates are in trouble in Spokane County. You always know they are in trouble when they start preaching about unity (on their terms). (more…)

Michele St. Pierre (c) 2010

You’ve all heard people say it and you might believe it yourself. “I like Clint Didier, but I have to vote for Dino Rossi, because he is the only one who can beat Patty Murray.” Really?

With stubborn wrongheadedness, mainstream Republicans cling steadfastly to the belief that only the moderate, not really conservative candidate can win, even though it has proven to be a faulty strategy. The same thing, after all, was said about McCain. On blog after blog, on the radio and on Facebook they keep insisting that Rossi is the only one who can win, as if by chanting it in recitation together their cosmic mantra will somehow make it so.

Rossi made the list of Crew’s Crooked Candidates. Granted, this site is run by admitted progressives, but they do list the reasons for his inclusion and they are troubling. Guilt by association with criminals might not be sufficient to convict him in a court of law, but perceptions by voters DO influence elections. If you look at the left’s websites, they have plenty of dirt ready to sling at Rossi. Wouldn’t it be great to have a candidate who is not so tainted?

Rossi’s appearing at a sales event promoting making money off of foreclosures after declaring his candidacy might not be illegal, but it was certainly tasteless given the suffering of so many in this economic downturn. It plays seamlessly into the “sleazy real estate dealings” accusation.

Jumping in at the last minute and not running a real campaign or engaging the other candidates might be perceived as a clever political strategy. In fact I have seen his hiding out referred to as “expert political gamesmanship” and “he only loses if he engages the other candidates in the primary, so why should he do that?”

Only thing is, ducking and hiding might be praised by politicos but it is not well perceived in the general public, who are certainly more than a little tired of politicking over principles and fluff over substance. (more…)
