Kootenai County GOP Candidates for May Primary

How We Have Such Short Memories

LUKE MALEK = OBAMACARE
TOBY SCHINDELBECK = CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP
Luke Malek was the ringleader for bringing the health exchange (OBAMACARE) to Idaho. For doing so, he was awarded a 100K/year job consulting with the medical profession, helping them navigate the Obamacare regulations. The rest of his term, he voted less than half with the conservatives. The only reason he runs as a Republican is because it is hard to get elected as a Democrat in North Idaho. And, Oh, he is the master of spin, calling the state exchange “pro-life” and the federal “pro-abortion” when there is no difference between the two – the state exchange simply administers Obamacare. If he was truly against Obamacare, he would have moved to opt our state out as did 26 other states. But look at you, you get so excited to like his Facebook page because it is so fun to (claim to) know a young, smiling, energetic politician. Because our memories are short, we will reward him with another term because he makes us feel good and has a winning smile. He scored a negative fifty-eight on the Idaho Freedom Index and he will continue to enslave the freedom loving citizens of Idaho – unless we wake up! Vote for Toby Schindelbeck.

ED MORSE = OBAMACARE
ERIC REDMAN = RETURN TO LIBERTY
Ed Morse helped propagate lies against one of our truly solid freedom soldiers in the legislature, Phil Hart. Upon defeating him, Morse helped Luke Malek bring in Obamacare. He is not conservative – he is bought and paid for by the members of LCDC – who use your tax money to increase their real estate portfolios. He scored a negative fifty-three on the Idaho Freedom Index. Do NOT Vote For This Man. Eric Redman, on the other hand, has long been a small businessman and fighter for liberty. He holds to Biblical principles. Vote for Eric Redman.

JOHN GOEDDE = OBAMACARE
MARY SOUZA = RETURN TO LIBERTY
When I moved to Idaho in 1999, John Goedde was a rock solid conservative. But, alas, the riggers of staying elected have overcome his character and now he is mush. He voted in Obamacare and he has voted less and less conservative as time goes by. Don’t reward a man who is willing to sell off your freedoms for the sake of getting re-elected. Mary Souza has been a leader in the fight for liberty and against corruption in North Idaho. She holds to Biblical principles. Vote for Mary Souza.

BOB NONINI = RETURN TO LIBERTY
PATRICK WHALEN = BIG GOVERNMENT SHILL
On the other hand, soon after I moved to Idaho, I met Bob Nonini who was the squishy chairman of the Republican Central Committee. What has happened to him, I do not know but I will say I have a Lot of Respect For This Man. He is solid, conservative and fights for freedom. Patrick Whalen is upset with Nonini for opposing Obamacare and Whalen is endorsed by the Obamacare pusher, Butch Otter – and by Big Government PACs. His wife is the director of Panhandle Health District – an agency that has become exponentially more regulatory in the last ten years, increasing costs dramatically on septic and sewer installations and rapidly increasing welfare handouts on the backs of the taxpayers. He also thinks we need government programs to bring jobs to Idaho – that is, more taxes to create jobs; while Nonini understands jobs are created by lowering taxes and regulations. Vote For Bob Nonini!

KATHY SIMS = SOLID CONSERVATIVE
RICK CURRIE = BIG GOVERNMENT AND REDUCED PROPERTY RIGHTS
Kathy Sims has a history of fighting for lower taxes and small government in North Idaho. Rick Currie has a history of heavy handed tactics against liberty minded citizens and has been instrumental in helping Todd Tondee incorporate the United Nation’s Agenda 21 in Kootenai County. He wants you to be enslaved to Big Government – don’t even tip your hat to this man. Vote for Mary Sims.

VITO BARBIERI = RETURN TO LIBERTY
FRITZ WIEDENHOFF = BIG GOVERNMENT SHILL
Fritz Wiedenhoff wants you to be safer but he does not want you to be free. Vito Barbieri is a proven defender of freedom and a fighter for small government and liberty and he is not afraid to stand up for Godly principles. Vote for Vito.

STEVE VICK = RETURN TO FREEDOM
Steve Vick is running unopposed. But I want to mention him anyway because he is a champion of liberty and not afraid to stand up for Godly principles.

DON CHEATHAM = SOLID CONSERVATIVE
GREG GFELLER = BIG GOVERNMENT SHILL
JEFF WARD = BIG GOVERNMENT AND STRATEGERY GROUP SHILL
Jeff Ward is the president of the formerly-called and falsely-named Reagan Republicans. This group has very little to do with Reagan ideals and they are continually working against the liberty minded Republicans. It is the Strategery Group and the formerly-called Reagan Republicans who recruited all these liberal shills posing as conservative to take out good legislators like Vito Barbieri, Bob Nonini, Ron Mendive and Kathy Sims. Jeff and his friends have David Oliveria (Spokesman Review, Huckleberries) to back them up and mock the truth. It is ironic Jeff Ward, half the formerly-named Reagan Republicans and David Oliveria profess to be Christians but fight against Biblical principles and mock those who stand up for the truth. Greg Gfeller has worked for public utilities and wants you to think he is a businessman. The truth is his network of influence is woven throughout Big Government and government and grants are the tools of trade he is used to. Don Cheatham is the only candidate expressing concerns about federal government encroachment upon the states and the only one speaking out against Big Government, including their sacred urban renewal programs. Vote for Don Cheatham – a vote for the other two is a vote for slavery.

BUTCH OTTER = OBAMACARE
RUSS FULCHER = RETURN TO LIBERTY
Butch Otter says Idaho’s new Obamacare laws are hurting job creation in our state, yet he is the one who helped usher it in and put pressure on the legislature to pass the law creating the health care exchange. Russ Fulcher, on the other hand, has been fighting for our liberty in Idaho and he stood against the health care exchange. If you want to see job growth then promote liberty and reduce taxes – VOTE FOR RUSS FULCHER FOR GOVERNOR!

RECOMMENDED VOTES FOR NATIONAL AND STATE OFFICES:
US SENATE – JIM RISCH
US HOUSE – RAUL LABRADOR
GOVERNOR – RUSS FULCHER
LT GOVERNOR – JIM CHMELIK
SECRETARY OF STATE – LAWRENCE DENNY
STATE CONTROLLER – TODD HATFIELD
ATTORNEY GENERAL – CHRIS TROUPIS
SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS – JOHN EYNON
Each one of these men are true conservatives and are concerned with the Big Government mentality that has overcome our State Capitol and our nation. They want to return the great State of Idaho to what made it great – the desire for liberty and a firm reliance upon God. Vote for these men.

On the Kootenai County side of the Election:

TODD TONDEE = BIG GOVERNMENT AND REDUCED PROPERTY RIGHTS
MARC EBERLEIN = RETURN TO LIBERTY
Todd Tondee was an environmental activist when I met him. He ran for County Commissioner as a Republican because it would be impossible to win as a Democrat. Are You Surprised this man is trying to bring in the United Nation’s Agenda 21 and destroy our right to freely use our private property? If he has his way, he will move everyone into the cities and bring all private property in the rural areas under the authority of government bureaucrats. DO NOT VOTE FOR TONDEE. Vote for Marc Eberlein for County Commissioner District 1 – he is a rock solid conservative and will fight for your freedom.

DAVID STEWART = CONSERVATIVE
For the District 2 Commissioner Seat vote for David Stewart.

JIM BRANNON = RETURN TO LIBERTY
Jim Brannon is well qualified to keep his position as County Clerk. He is a solid, God-fearing conservative. Vote For Jim Brannon.

MIKE McDOWELL = CONSERVATIVE
Mike McDowell has been doing well as the Assessor. Vote For Mike McDowell.

LAURIE THOMAS = MORE BIG GOVERNMENT
STEVE MATHESON = MORE EFFICIENT AND MORE PROFITABLE BIG GOVERNMENT
For the Treasurer seat, Laurie Thomas is a political hack and not qualified for the position. She fights the conservatives in her party and sides with the Strategery Group and their political front, the falsely named Reagan Republicans. Steve Matheson is the most qualified hands down but the downside is he believes in the Federal Reserve System and he is a closet communist (regarding his views on death taxes and redistribution of wealth for the very rich). Vote for Steve Matheson at the risk he will be running for governor later and destroy our freedoms. Vote for Laurie Thomas at the risk she will squander our resources and manipulate the position for political gain. I will vote for nobody – I am sorry, but the lesser of two evils is still evil.

Sorry, I cannot give you a recommendation for County Coroner. One is a political hack and the other I know nothing about.

Do Not Be Deceived
Don’t be mislead by people who tell you we have become divided and need leadership who will bring us together. Since mankind was created, there has always been a division between those who will stand for the truth and those who stand for lies and self-interests. It is usually the liars who will try to manipulate the debate by pleas for unity. Whereas in the past, our nation was mostly united – it was united in a belief in God, our Creator and the understanding that it is from Him our liberties originate. Right now our nation is deeply divided because we have moved away from God and have tried to remove Him from our social fabric. As our faith in God diminishes within society, so do our liberties. We have to decide: Do we want to serve man or serve God. If our laws and liberties come from God, we must serve Him. If our laws and liberties come from man, we must serve Big Government. Choose this day whom you will serve – as for me and my house, we will serve God.

Trust not in man or in mans’ government. Trust only in God (Psa 118:8-9; 146:3). To whom do we look for aide in this life? Do we look to government handouts and subsidies provided by stolen money from our neighbors or do we look to God for our provision?

The Bible says Satan portrays himself as an angel of light and would deceive God’s elect IF THAT WERE POSSIBLE (2Co 11:14; Mar 13:22). The Bible also tells us there is truth and there is falsehood – the two don’t mix because truth is from God and lies are from Satan. So then, my evangelical friend, if you are truly saved how has Satan deceived you into voting for the pro-choice, pro-same-sex-marriage, pro-big-government candidates?

And when the news media and political hacks lie about the people who stand up for the truth (not that anyone is perfect, though), how has Satan deceived you to believing those lies if you are truly saved? We all make mistakes but to be continually deceived and to continually vote for candidates who promote what the Bible condemns cannot be born of fruit from following Christ. The Apostle Paul challenged us to test ourselves to see whether we are in the faith (2Co 13:5).

The Bible tells us in Exodus 18 and elsewhere to vote for men who fear God and are trustworthy. The essence of Godliness is life; therefore, they must be pro-life. If a candidate says he is an economic conservative but a social liberal, he has already deceived himself and he will deceive you, because he must fund the social liberalism and that removes his conservatism altogether. Decades of experience will confirm this. Man cannot fool God and politics cannot happen in a moral or financial vacuum – morality and money go hand-in-hand.

If a candidate professes to be pro-life while remaining squishy on the subject, such as maintaining a list of exceptions, he will be squishy on your freedoms as well – because he fears man more than he fears God. Sometimes a candidate is not available who is pro-life – or it is possible the pro-life candidate is also a fool in all other respects. At this point you are best not to vote at all for that seat rather than vote a lie. Lesser of two evils is still very evil.

God has been in control before the beginning of time. He is not depending upon your help. He is daily testing your faith and your willingness to obey Him. Vote in faith, pray and allow God to produce His results. – cominus

A Question for Members of the formerly-named Reagan Republicans to Ponder
Many of you profess to be saved – followers of Christ, that is. Jesus Christ asked the question: “How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?” [John 5:44].

Keep the faith.

UPDATE [23 May, 8:15PM]: In this article, I write about the old Reagan group as the formerly-named Reagan Republicans. They are the group, while most the members professed to be saved, fought against every Christian virtue and Biblical truth because they preferred the praise of man rather than the praise of God. They are the formerly named because they never were a legal entity. Now a Christian group of people – who are not afraid to stand up for Biblical truth and conservative values has registered with the State as the Reagan Republicans. You will be hearing more from them and you don’t want to get the two mixed up.

    i’m not sure i even understand what “return to liberty” means? Liberty to be without health insurance? Liberty to be poisoned by contaminated food and ground water? Liberty to be gouged by greedy CEOs? Freedom to sell off Idaho’s lands to companies who have only a pecuniary interests? I mean what exactly do you mean by “freedom”?

    • Posted 17 May 2014 at 2:44 pm | Permalink

      You don’t, David. You have no idea what “return to liberty” means. Tomorrow is Constitution Day and it is a sad thing you understand little about this document. It is also sad you have been deceived to believe the government of man will eradicate mans’ sinful nature.

      The purpose of liberty, or freedom, is for man to worship the God of the Bible without hinderance or coercion to the otherwise by man. This is the foundation of our nation – our Founding Fathers understood this and the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution reflect this.

      Our Founding Fathers also understood that liberty went beyond religious freedom and included our right to own property and build our estate because it is in our production where we daily reflect our Creator. The godless defy God, so they agree to reduce man to servitude to the earth rather than take dominion as God commanded. They deny God the honor He deserves as Creator and create godless laws to deny His authority as Lawgiver.

      You have set up a straw man to justify our enslavement to man and Big Government – part of the reason to cure wrongs and the other to justify theft from those who have more than you. It should be obvious to you Big Government has failed to satisfy any of the tenets you espouse. Maybe you will think about this.

      There will be no utopia on earth under mans’ rule. You and the people of our nation must decide whether we will follow God’s laws or mans’. Mans’ law always leads to tyranny, while God’s law leads to freedom. – cominus

        Cougargulch, you posted 5 paragraghs and never once defined what you mean by “return to liberty”. I ask, return to lack of accessibility to healthcare? You can cry about God all you want but He wont come down to make sure the government takes care of the poor!

        • Posted 11 Jun 2014 at 10:02 pm | Permalink

          David, “Lack of accessibility to healthcare” is a straw man. Since Obamacare over 9 million have lost their insurance coverage. Prior to this, even those without insurance still had access to healthcare.

          But to answer your question: The Bible tells us the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. You feign ignorance and throw out straw men. Furthermore, you have no respect for God yet think you know what He commands. God commands you and me to look out for the poor. The only thing God commands the government to do is to enforce His Law and ensure justice. And, my friend, I am sorry to tell you that social justice is NOT God’s justice.

          When you place the responsibility of the poor upon the state, you do two things that violate God’s law: 1) you rob the unwilling to accomplish what you think is the right thing to do; and 2) you make the government the provider, usurping God’s role in peoples’ lives and removing their personal accountability to God.

          Only God’s Law leads to freedom. Man’s law leads to tyranny and the bigger you grow the state, the greater the tyranny.

            9 million lost their healthcare? On what planet? And why aren’t these 9 million filling the airwaves already? The fact that you could lie so easily ruins any credibility you may have on this issue. To say the government has no role taking care if the poor is bizarre, selfish and ungodly.

          • Posted 11 Jun 2014 at 10:58 pm | Permalink

            David,
            You have your head buried in the sand if you think I am lying. To say the government has no role in taking care of the poor is Scriptural. For you to ignore your duty to the poor and require the government to steal from your neighbor to accomplish this is bizarre and selfish.
