Island Politics doesn’t come close to Liberal Media’s finest, Martin Bashir.
Funny thing is Keven R. Graves seems to think Island Politics is related to the Tea Party. News flash Keven! Of course investigative reporting never was one of your skillsets.
Keven is very clever in his editorial however, when he links Island Politics with the Tea Party. This is right out of the liberal media playbook. Keven enjoys bashing the Tea Party and Kelly Emerson, and that too is right out of the playbook. Perhaps Keven R. Graves is aspiring to beat out Martin Bashir for DemonRat Dung Slinger of the Year.
Keven R. Graves claims his articles are to “invite discussion.” That is true if you are a DemonRat and want to bash the Emersons via Keven’s editorials and “news” articles. The only topic Keven R. Graves can fixate on is Kelly Emerson. Keven is not capable of looking at anything from another person’s point of view. Has Keven R. Graves “walked a mile” in the Emerson’s shoes? NO! Has Keven covered ANY of Island County’s misdeeds? NO! Instead Keven R. Graves is too busy facilitating the DemonRats in bashing the Emersons and the Tea Party! Meanwhile Island County government officials can do no wrong!
Speaking of DemonRats bashing via Keven’s editorials and “news” articles. Here are some recent comments on Keven R. Graves latest editorial and a “news” article.
“Chelle Brunke stated that she “very little in common with the Tea Party.” That is rich, indeed, coming from one of the most ardent supporters of Tea Partier Jeff Lauderdale during his race against Helen Price Johnson. She supported every policy position he took, no matter how extreme or controversial. I guess Ms. Brunke believes that she can now run away from her Tea Party support in order to make her blog entries more credible. I’m betting it won’t work. “ Nels Kelstrom · Top Commenter, November 21,2013
“Looking at the photo above, one gets the distinct (and correct) impression that Kelly Emerson can’t stand to recognize and honor the hard-working, dedicated, professional county employees who make our county government such a success.
Her Tea Party dogma dictates that she demonize and vilify public employees and portray them as greedy parasites. How else can you possibly succeed in your quest to eliminate most, if not all, governmental functions. It is almost painful to watch her squirm as she has to stand there and listen to all the great things county employees are doing for Island County citizens. If she were still chairwoman, I’m sure that we would have already seen an effort on her part to eliminate public recognition for our great public servants.
Want further proof that she despises county employees? I think I heard something recently about her filing another lawsuit against the county that yet again denigrates the work that was done by a number of county employees. Why must she constantly portray herself as the victim of the big, bad government whose workers are all out to get her? Poor Commissioner Emerson – she is so picked on.
With regard to her nomination of Jill Johnson as chairwoman, we all know that her motivation is based on her absolute hatred of Helen Price Johnson. She will say and do anything (even if it is totally inconsistent with her earlier statements and actions) in order to prevent Helen from reassuming the leadership position on the commission. Next November we will finally be rid of Commissioner Emerson. Then the commission will fully functional once again, and Helen Price Johnson will again take her turn at the helm.” Nels Kelstrom • Top Commenter, November 21 2013
Here is a challenge to you Keven R, Graves. Stop being lazy and do some in-depth investigative reporting on the misdeeds of Island County government officials related to the non-existent wetland instead of regurgitating old news and admonishing the Emersons to CLOSE this issue once and for all via the courtroom.
“Republican officials who don’t toe the Tea Party line are labeled “DemonRats,” “Republirats” and “RINOs.” Keven R. Graves, November 20,2013
Keven R. Graves since you are so ignorant let’s set the record straight. DemonRat is a term associated with DemocRats who support Progressive Democratic Socialism. Not ONE Republican official was EVER called a DemonRat. Your statement is FALSE and was deliberately fabricated.
“Said John Roberts, chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, “As a nation we have chosen a different course — to protect even hurtful speech on public issues to ensure that we do not stifle public debate.” WNT
“Indeed.” Keven R. Graves
Yes indeed Keven. Why don’t you tell your readers that you and your crew are deleting all of my online comments even when they are civil and on topic?
By their very responses and remarks, the Whidbey News Times and their DemonRat fans are revealing much more about their own character and beliefs.
