STAY TUNED.

obscured-by-hand-3.jpgLongtime followers of the Reagan Wing website have noticed that my additions to it have been sparse since the publication of my series on the Presidential race starting here:

 Two men. Three first names.

.and culminating here:

ONE MAN TWO FIRST NAMES.

It has not been for lack of important things to write, but, to the contrary, because of my direct, time-devouring, involvement (and, hence, priveleged vantage point) in the spiritual battles, themselves, that form the substance of the war to save freedom in America, that has made writing about it impossible (until now).

Since those articles , I published three more hinting at ominous doings in the Washington State GOP, The Winds of Disaster, King County Chair calls it quits…, and Ruth Gibbs opens GOP Establishment hunting season on Ron Paul delegates, but not really giving you the story of what is transpiring behind the scenes, despite the enormity of the doin’s.

Within the week, however, I believe we will be will be ripping the boxtop off the Rice Krispies of Doom to reveal the most important part of a nefarious breakfast since 1992, the emergence of full-blown, widespread, blue-printed fascist tactics to control the Republican Convention process.  We will, as usual, be naming names and becoming the lightening rod for GOP/Left hatred that gets me unrelenting criticism (and loathing)within the Party among the pragmatic hacks who believe that the abolition of commitment to principle is a prerequisite to winning in politics. And after I’m always so nice to them…

The story we are about to break is worthy of national news… which, since it could help the conservative cause, may mean that you will not get it anywhere but here,

  1. “Can you identify this man?”

    Yes. That’s Michael Young. Employee of the McCain campaign who chaired a few Republican district caucuses in King Co. while simultaneously working for the McCain campaign.

  2. In the interest of factual accuracy:

    1. Mike Young is not an employee of the McCain campaign, he is a volunteer.

    2. Caucus and convention chairman are elected by the delegates, so those in attendance must have been comfortable with Mike being their chairman.

    Nothing unusual or improper about this.

  3. Michelle,

    My purpose here is to prevent the spreading of false information.

    Mike Young being elected to chair a caucus is not a violation of the law or any Party rule. That is what I meant by improper.

  4. Pingback: Return of the Undead (Chris Vance) « www.TheReaganWing.com

  5. Chris (at “5,” above) is right.
    Political payoffs to unscrupulous GOP/Left operatives are usually not in the form of paid campaign staff positions (that, typically go to people with actual skills), but rather with bloated salaries to be a Party Chair, appointment to a Government Bureaucracy, or a wildly-overpaid “dream job” as a “political consultant.”

  6. Michelle,

    You claimed Mike was “an employee” of the McCain campaign. That was false. Then you implied that his chairing a caucus was “improper.” Also false.

    I’m not here to argue with you and Doug. Only to correct factual inacuracies.

  7. OK. Let’s be specific. Michael Young is the “Western Washington Campaign Coordinator” for John McCain. Is he not? To “employ” is “to make use of” and in that sense, Michael Young is “employed” by the John McCain campaign.

    Paid employee or not, he has a special interest in securing the nomination for McCain (which has not yet been accomplished). A caucus chairman is supposed to be impartial. I call that “improper” because it is “not suited to the circumstances, design, or end; and not in accord with propriety, modesty, good manners, or good taste.” (See Webster’s definitition of “improper”.)

  8. “Employee payment” is never a salary in the political world unless you are a consultant with a contract. I suspect Chris Vance is the consultant in this case and M.Y.’s compensation will come later. Many politicals got their compensation placed “in escrow” as we learned with the developer world. I think Michael will be compensated if McCain were to win. I don’t see that as probable, but you never can tell.

  9. Chris,

    They share the same root word and carry the same root meaning in each tense and part of speech.

    So, should I take it that I found a way to describe his relationship to the campaign that you can not argue?

  10. “Employee payment” is never a salary in the political world unless you are a consultant with a contract.”

    Not true. Campaigns hire lots of paid staff.

    “I suspect Chris Vance is the consultant in this case”

    Not true. I am not a paid consultant to the McCain campaign.

    “M.Y.’s compensation will come later.”

    Not true. Campaigns never promise people future jobs in exchange for support. It’s illegal. Republican, Democrat, “conservative,” “moderate,” “liberal,” it doesn’t matter. It simply isn’t done. I have known lots of people who worked on a campaign, then asked for a job and were turned down.

    “So, should I take it that I found a way to describe his relationship to the campaign that you can not argue?”

    Michelle, I don’t agree, and I think you are being disingenuous regarding your orginal meaning, but I have no basis to argue if you are simply expressing an opinion.

    And again, this is the only reason I am engaging here; to refute falsehoods and ridiculous theories portrayed as facts.

  11. Believe me, I am no fan of Ron Paul’s, but I believe Chris is missing the point that Michelle is making, that is Michael Young is taking a significant role in the McCains campaign, whether he is an employee, or is employed by the campaign is simply parsing words. Her point is he has a large vested interest in McCain, where you would hope that a caucus chairman would , at least have some impartiality. At the time of the first caucuses, it was important to the national campaign that McCain showed momentum, and I believe the Washington GOP leadership did all the could to orchestrate a “victory” for McCain.

  12. Well, RBN, I’m glad YOU get it. I think most people would.

    Chris says, “Michelle, I don’t agree, and I think you are being disingenuous…” What was that old saying about a pot calling a kettle black?

  13. “Improper”

    It is unquestionably true that what Young has done is improper.

    He was brought in, specifically, to cheat. To ensure caucus victories for McCain.

    The primary qualification of a chair under Roberts is to be impartial. Young has proved, over and over and over again, he isn’t remotely capable of that.

    That’s why he was chosen.

    Stay tuned.

  14. Chris has a hard time with the definitions of words – he strains to remove the speck from our eyes while he can’t seem to get the log out of his.

    He also claims he is “not here to argue with you and Doug. Only to correct factual inacuracies (sic).” But all he has done is argue technicalities – of which, those of us who have been involved in the process can see right through.

    If he understood what an employee is, he would have worked to accomplish the goals of the central committee when he was chairman, rather than sandbag the majority conservatives and promote the minority mainstreamers.

  15. Doug,

    Until yesterday I wasn’t aware that Mike had chaired any district caucuses. I still don’t know which caucuses he chaired. However, as you well know, caucus and convention permanent chairman are elected by the delegates in attendance. Anyone who opposed his election could’ve spoken against it, voted against it, and nominated someone else. Apparently the majority didn’t feel Mike’s election was “improper.”

  16. The attendence at the precinct caucuses was unprecedented. Waves of new people. Waves of opportunity to turn around the death spiral into which the State and King County Parties have been steered.

    The majority of delegates elected from the precinct caucuses to the district caucuses had never been in that process before. They were fresh. They didn’t know what to expect or to distrust the Republican Party. They came to the Republican Party with a baseline expectation of fairness. They expected that fairness to be provided to them, without research, without struggle.

    The Republican Party has a moral obligation to provide that to them.

    These people had no idea who Michael Young was or why he would come, from out of his district (or, for that matter, why any of the “ringers’ showed up, out of district, to control the outcome of caucuses by cheating). They didn’t even know if he was out of district or not. They had every reason to believe that anyone the Party provided would be there to be fair and impartial.

    That was the assumption. That was your majority.

    There was no announcement, in advance, that the KCGOP-run Caucuses were about to be taken over for John McCain by the pro-abortion, gay rights, pro-illegal alien amnesty, tax-and-spend, anti-Constitutional wing of the Party by cheating.

    They were sitting Ducks.

    And you know it well.

    You are a Sitting Duck hunter extraordinaire, Mr. Vance.

  17. Well, I was one of the sitting ducks. I am one of those who believes we have a one party system in this country. I am one who decided to finally take a stab at involvement in the process, decades after casting my first, idealistic vote. (And yes, in my precinct caucus, it seemed a majority were newcomers to the process.) One who figured at the local level things could be done to change this one party system. One who has lived, in half a lifetime, as much time out of the country as in it and knows, from first hand experience, the difference between how Americans and the American government, are perceived. But how our Constitution is respected and envied.
    I got my first inkling of something funny as I left my precinct caucus, but I chalked it up to overenthusiastic party loyalty (“I hope no matter what, you will unite behind the nominee.” Excuse me, with a presumptive nominee who repudiates nearly everything conservative–what used to be “liberal” after the word liberty????) And then I had more inklings at the 41st caucus, but most of the funny business went way over my head. (Except that the fellow whom I quote above from my precinct caucus, was at the 41st and turned out to be a party insider and then some things began to click.) Because as Doug says, I am new, I am fresh, I jumped in without doing my homework and I did not expect at this grassroots level, what has made me a cynic about politics and politicians, because here, (I thought) I was just in the midst of another bunch of folks like me, some more experienced (more dedicated to the process that sets us apart?).
    It has been the best civics education I have ever encountered and it ain’t over yet.

  18. Chris,

    Phil Spackman here
    first of all I have yet to decide whether to take you up on your offer.

    But I am going to tell you little story. When I first got involved in politics back in 1994 one of the first people I met is guy we will call
    the washington activist for now.

    We both were living in skagit county at
    the time. We became
    good friends and to
    this day we stil are. The thing that
    always impressed me the most was his ability to take people on in their face and win the debate everytime.
    Not to mention he is a
    fearless all out campaigner. Had he been when here in 2004 when Mark Hulst
    ran against you for
    state chair you wouldn’t had a prayer of winning.
    Dino Rossi not withstanding.

    For business reasons he has been living in Michigan the past seven years. But he is moving back here in the beginning of may. The best part Chris is he won’t be living in skagit this time around. You wanna to take guess where? That’s
    Right he will be living right here in King
    County.

    Having had discussions with him
    recently. I can tell
    you that he is hell bent on getting Mark
    elected state chair in
    2009. My wife thinks in a lot ways he reminds her of a younger version of Doug Parris.

    So yeah he is about you and Luke Esser and Michael Youngs
    Worst nightmare. Did I put the fear of God in you Chris?

  19. Wow, threatening posts, and yet no names? Come on Spacky, who is this “true dynamo” who will change the WA GOP? Conservatives need to pack it in. Mainstream rules the GOP. You say a young Doug? Seems to me, DP is, and always will be on the losing side of elections for himself, and candidates he pushes! Ronald Reagan couldn’t win in this state. We need Dan Evans types. If this “wonder conservative” is as effective as Doug, your **** [post edited] kind, is in due for a world of hurt!

  20. Nice job of editing the post! DP claims RR victory?!! I laugh. It is time that we purge our party of “his kind”.

    Point of inquiry- DP claims his support in 80 resulted RR (nevermind the national landslide), please tell me, where else has his narrow misguided support ever resulted in any victory?

    It is not that we need mainstream GOP, what we do not need is the intolerance and clever name calling and creative photoshop type photos to slime those who dare cross the RW koolaid afficiandos. Damn straight we need Dan Evans types….

  21. That’s “a·fi·cio·na·dos.”

    You’ll be happy to know we have a Dan Evans type governor and legislature already!

    So tolerant we’re a hair’s breadth from gay marriage.
    So mainstream they’ve enlarged state government in two terms as much as it took Evans three gubernatorial terms to accomplish.

    And while the Evans guys get credit for legalizing abortion, it took your current group to give it the heavy public funding it takes to really slaughter children at will.

    You have no reason to fear Phil or any other conservative.
    You’ve got another Party.

  22. “It is time that we purge the party of ‘his kind'”.
    And,
    “We do not need the intolerance.”
    This is why the GOP is dying. You can’t even string a coherent thought together. You want to purge yet tolerate; promote unity yet idolize the individual; exhalt the pragmatic yet remain totally out of touch with reality. Dan Evans? What a bunch of sentimental sop! That was almost 30 years ago!! How pathetic are you that you can’t even realize that the ground has shifted underneath you in that time.When you are done crying over the loss of your beloved pro-abort Danny boy give us a shout.

  23. Not Afraid of Phil makes a good point: “The mainstream rules the GOP.”

    It’s true – but not to be confused with the fact the majority of the grassroots are conservative.

    The fact that the majority has not risen up to rule is the reason they are continually submarined by the mainstreamers.

    This premise is the sole source of this thread.

    That said, the cure is not easy. It is not a simple matter and that is inherent in the fact that the heart of the conservative does not ascribe to accumulating political power. Few of the truly conservative run for office, even within the party. They are easily consoled by some mainstreamer waving a conservative banner and allow him to take their place.

    As the divide between the right and the left continues to widen, we (on the right) continue to see our influence erode because we have allowed the Chris Vances and Not Afraid of Phils to take our place.

    Solve this, and we no longer have to argue with Chris, who is not here to argue – only to set the record straight.

  24. Hey, Chris,

    Is it true that Ted Bundy was a volunteer with the Dan Evans for Governor campaign? And that Ralph Munro said that he had “good ideas”?

    And you wonder why many conservatives hate people like you much more than they even hate the Democrats. You walk with evil in your midst and you don’t even know it.

    Oh, and if you think the “statute of limitations” regarding being an FOT (friend of Ted) has run out and we should just leave that in the past how about Larry Corrigan? Did that happen too far in the past as well?

    I don’t know but with the party’s establishment’s history of associating with people like Bundy and Corrigan it sure makes you wonder about what we will one day find out about people like Vance and Young. I am not saying there’s anything there but it sure makes one wonder does it?

  25. There’s already rumors about Luke Esser out there.

    He lives at home with his mom.

    Well at least they don’t own a hotel, I think.

  26. A leftist poster on Sound Politics really trashed Luke Esser during his last campaign.

    It was incredible how Eric Earling was allowing the stuff to remain up while he was deleting other posts.

    I remember thinking how bad it was that such stuff remained up but now I am wondering if Eric knew the background of such rumors and that is why they remained.

  27. I love it, you all are tilting at windmills!

    The best your ilk can do is connect your political enemies with serial killers? Sad….

    By the way, it has been a week, where is DP “big” expose that will tear the boxtop off?

  28. Not afraid of Phil,

    It’s a historical fact that Ted Bundy IS connected with the granddaddies of the so called “Mainstream Republicans of Washington State.

    He worked on Dan Evans campaign for governor.

    This can all be independently verified.

    http://www.crimelibrary.com/criminal_mind/psychology/witness/18.html

    Ralph Munro, one of Evans’s top op­eratives and later Washington’s secretary of state, knew Ted slightly from the 1968 campaign. “He was very friendly, very open,” Munro recalled. “There were other people in the 1972 campaign that I probably knew better, but I remember him being there and being involved. I thought he was bright, sharp. He had good ideas.”

    http://www.crimelibrary.com/criminal_mind/psychology/witness/19.html

    After the 1972 election, Ted made a second, successful attempt at law school admission. He prepared an elaborate new packet of mate­rials to support his candidacy (including a letter from Governor Evans …

    http://crime.about.com/od/serial/p/tedbundy.htm

    Bundy worked on the re-election campaign of Washington’s Republican Governor Dan Evans. Evans was elected and he appointed Bundy to the Seattle Crime Prevention Advisory Committee…

    (Yeah, the irony of that is just overwhelming isn’t it)

    I know how much you want to run away from historical truths but facts are facts. Evans made the connection between himself and Bundy.

    I believe it is because these Leftist Republicans live in a world of moral ambiguity that they can’t see evil in their midst. And it’s not only Bundy as the recent Larry Corrigan episode shows.

  30. I have often pictured in my mind what that might have been like.

    I know often in my political experience the elite have touted “fair hair boys”, young attractive people who seem to come out of nowhere, who they want to set up for “larger things”(a run for state legislature, city council, whatever).

    I can just imagine back then them going around introducing Ted Bundy saying what a great guy he was and how Dan Evans likes him and how people like him are the future of the Republican party.

    It is why when I hear the elite start touting a “fair hair boy” I am immediately suspicious of that person.

  31. With help from his political friends, Ted then found a job at the King County Office of Law and Justice Planning. His assignment was to study recidivism among those convicted of minor offenses in King County justice courts. He had access to nearly all pertinent arrest records, rap sheets, and the like. For weeks, he scoured thousands and thousands of arrests, noting with interest how poor the coopera­tion and coordination were among the various police and judicial jurisdictions. Ted was amazed to find rap sheets showing arrests that had never resulted in a trial, but neglecting to list convictions for other crimes. There were habitual criminals with two or three dozen arrests shown, but he couldn’t figure out from the records what happened to the people. They had just fallen between the cracks.

    /www.crimelibrary.com/criminal_mind/psychology/witness/19.html

    —–

    Didn’t Larry Corrigan get some job in King County concerning justice issues?

    The names change, but the general themes come up again again with the so called “mainstreamers”. The more things change, the more things stay the same.
