rlc-newsreleaseAUSTIN, TX – The Republican Liberty Caucus joins grassroots Republicans across the state in expressing concern and dismay over the negative example being set by the Harris County Republican Party in their recent rejection of Christopher Busby as an applicant for Precinct Chair. At a time when the party nationwide is working to clean a tarnished image and embrace inclusiveness, for the second largest county party in the nation to reject a qualified applicant solely because he is openly gay sends exactly the wrong message to the constituencies the party needs to reach… (more…)

The ents go marching4

In the few days and weeks BEFORE the RLCWA Convention but AFTER we knew that RLC (National)’s structure was in danger of aborting (you’ll pardon the expression) the Washington State liberty movement, a bunch of stuff happened.  (more…)

Exposing the Republican “Liberty” Caucus, Part II:

Fetuses are Just Like Dandruff

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.

The Problem with National: (CATCH 22 Bylaws)

As I described in  Lord of the RLC #6a: A Journey in the Dark (Principles), when Sandra “Sandi” “the Belz”  Belzer Brendale, in the summer of 2012, laid the foundation for the Washington State RLC, by little more than the heat, light, and sincerity of her own personality, we listened.

Get-Involved-Take-Back-AmericaWhen we looked at the National RLC Statement of Principles and instinctively understood that a grand confrontation between its “classical Libertarians” and the “true conservatives”  was inevitable… somewhere on the horizon… we were deeply concerned, but we had faith in Sandi and believed her when she said  she had a plan to “fix it,” and we joined.

Sandi Belzer Brendale had begun to call the patriots from the hills to battle to save the nation. (more…)

Exposing The Republican “Liberty” Caucus Part

I: Pro-Abortion, Pro-Illegal, Anti-Liberty History

by Kit Lange and R. Clayton Strang

The Republican Party is broken.  This is undeniable fact.   It is no longer the effective machine for liberty and freedom that we grew up with.  The party of Ronald Reagan, who stood and fought for the right things, seems to no longer exist.  Grassroots conservatives, however, refuse to give up.  For some time, we have been trying to find something — anything, that can restore the national GOP to a party of integrity and values, and it is a national restoration that is necessary.

The problem with National (Principles)

It was glaring.

But who would notice? The problem with the RLC, I mean.

When “the Belz” began to barnstorm, in the summer of 2012, on the stump for the Washington Chapter of the RLC, I specifically attended a Ron Paul reunion event at Lil’ Erickson’s to listen to her and ask what “the program” would be. Not what the RLC would stand for, but what it would DO. Sandi Belzer Brendale was articulate about a “two pronged” approach: 1, “education” for which she would tap the John Birch Society and 2, “literature distribution” for which she would tap the John Birch Society. So far, so good. Sandi was – like Lil’ – a member of the John Birch Society. (more…)
