One thing is clear.
If the Republican Party nominates Donald Trump, the Party’s finished.
Another thing is also clear… (more…)

The following article was originally published in November, 2006. It is composed entirely of published news reports at that time about PLAZA BANK and its profitable connections with Illegal Immigration and the Marxist movement. It has become crucially pertinent again now that one of its FOUNDERS, Pedro Celis, is running for Congress… as a Republican (!!!). Anyone with a direct connection to the activities described in this article disqualifies himself from standing for election to represent law-abiding Republicans.

[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:

I 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.

In 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…)

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.
From the frequent commenter, JSBach:
An interesting birdie informs the awaiting grassroots, that the Attorney Genrull McKenna, of your state of Washington, was a guest at the re-org of this county today. The significance is that when the chair asked the AG a question related to the Bill of (inalienable) Rights, and the law, he did not seem to know the answer!
Or, was he confused by the simplicity of the question being asked in front of an audience of potential future voters in his potential future campaign for governor? (more…)
