.

The RLCWA held its historic first quarterly Board meeting Sunday at the Palace Cafe in  Ellen’sma or Yaki-berg… or…  someplace convenient to the center of the State. And inconvenient to everywhere else.

Not so convenient, either, was the seating.

Considerable efforts were exerted to restrict access. (more…)

facebook_revenue_The required post-convention meeting of the RLCWA Board was held as a Facebook Chat Session. Board Members were notified by email,  but not given the required 3 day lead, preventing some board members from being present, not having seen the email in time. Absent members were only able to review the chat session,  too late to participate. Holding a private Facebook Chat didn’t begin to satisfy the requirement to notify ALL RLCWA members and allow them to attend the meeting. Official “minutes” of that meeting were sent out to all members, but RLCWA “minutes” are so highly redacted of what actually went on you will be amazed at the difference between the actual chats and the “official” (falsified) “minutes.” And this was the only meeting that even made any semblance of following the required Bylaws  by the Board that RLC members elected to represent them.

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…)

[Ed Note: This is part three of Kit’s series on the dark side of the RLC. Emphasis ours.  Part one was cross published at the Reagan Wing here and Part two here.  Kit Lange writes for the conservative blog Victory Girls. Clayton Strang is a Reagan Wing authorand writes for Red State.]

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.

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…)

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…)
