Exposing the Republican “Liberty” Caucus, Part 3: Shady Money and Shadier Leaders

by Kit Lange and R. Clayton Strang

Authors’ Note: This is the third installment in a series exposing the Republican Liberty Caucus for the leftist, pro-abortion, anti-Christianity organization that it is, and throwing open the closet on their corruption, lies, and machinations. Part 1 showed the first few years of history, and Part 2 brought it up to the present day. Part 3 focuses on the new leader of the RLC, and the largest state charter, Washington State, where this author was a paying member of the RLCWA until very recently. (Apparently our resignations were not accepted…read on.)

rlcwa logoThere are two kinds of issues: core, and peripheral—and these are different for every person. Core issues elect candidates, for they are what people camp on. Peripheral issues are the ones that you’re willing to negotiate on; a candidate may disagree with you, but you’ll still vote for him if he meets your core. One voter, for instance, may have considered the war in Iraq their number one priority core issue in the 2008 election—and the reason they voted for Obama, even if they disagreed with his social policies. A social conservative (or as some of them call themselves, liberty-minded conservative) holds one value above everything else: the defense of life. Some hold this as equal and even above the Second Amendment right to self-defense against tyranny, for the killing of an unborn child is the ultimate in tyranny.

We have already seen how the RLC has always been pro-abortion. Its leaders are staunch abortion defenders—even up to the minute a baby takes its first breath outside the womb. To hardcore “libertarians” like Dave Nalle and Bill Westmiller, a woman has the “right” to murder her child even as she gives birth to it, as long as it has not taken a breath yet. In order to attract social conservatives, however, they toned down their shocking belief system and made it “neutral,” claiming that “honest and ethical” differences of opinions could exist.  Current RLCWA leadership, including state chairman Sandra Belzer and Snohomish County Chairman Brian Landsberger, claimed they were pro-life, and offered assurances to prospective members that they could help the RLCWA change their platform to reflect life as the foundation of liberty.  Sadly, several pro-life activists actually believed them.

Not Doug ParrisLast week when Doug Parris (a member in good standing of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Washington) was blocked from posting or commenting at the Republican Liberty Caucus of Washington State (open) Facebook page (that allegedly has more non- members than members), TheReaganWing didn’t publish it, although  all of the Reagan Wing posts and comments were deleted from the page at the same time.

This morning the Reagan Wing reported that Parris had been removed from the RLCWA “Membership Page,” a different thing entirely. [see: A Stab in the Dark]

This afternoon, one RLCWA member added Parris back to the open page where we then published the three most recent articles in our series on the RLCWA. (more…)

Eomer & Riders[Editor’s note: By the time of the War of the Ring, Théoden, King of the Rohan, was becoming weak with age. He was controlled by  Wormtongue, his chief advisor, (in the secret employ of Isengaard).  Rohan was being overrun by enemies. His adopted son Éomer  and soon to be Théoden’s heir, is banished by Wormtongue, in service to Isengaard’s corrupt ruler, Sauruman. Éomer, along with  riders loyal to him,  track and destroy the Uruk-hai, who are on their way to Sauuman with captives Merry & Pippin.] (more…)

Exposing the Republican “Liberty” Caucus, Part II:

Fetuses are Just Like Dandruff

Bill Westmiller

Bill Westmiller

In 2004, Bill Westmiller became the national chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus.  Westmiller’s main claim to fame in the Republican Liberty Caucus is his authoring of the current language of the RLC Statement of Principles.  In 2004, Westmiller submitted modified language to the National Convention that would put what they called a ”neutral” position on abortion.  At the time, Westmiller stated that “The neutral abortion plank is intended to avoid conflicting statements from state organizations and describe our motives.”  Unfortunately for pro-life conservatives, Westmiller left out part of the story—and why not?  The other founders of the RLC were die-hard libertarians, and as such were pro-abortion themselves.  They already knew about the RLC’s pro-abortion roots because they designed them.  The knowledge that Westmiller once compared an unborn baby to a flake of dandruff was no big deal.  That’s how they felt too.
