BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN — I was in court yesterday battling with Bob Ferguson again.

“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”

I posted this yesterday morning before the court hearing started:

Bob Ferguson wanted to keep the Democrats’ $3.9 billion Cap & Trade bill a secret. 

So he ignored the law and didn’t notify the Secretary of State that it needed to go on the November ballot.

And he did it quietly, hoping no one would notice.

I did.

And once I recognized he violated the law, I could have acquiesced — just quietly given up without a fight.

I could have said “The AG’s 10 years of persecution has drained me dry so I don’t have any money to hire an attorney, I’m not an attorney, I don’t know how to do this, all the judges in Olympia will bow down to Bob, what’s the use, why fight it?”

But I didn’t do that.

Because you can’t hit the ball unless you swing at it.

You can’t succeed unless you try.

So I tried.

And by trying, I put a bright spotlight on Bob Ferguson’s white-hot obsession with hiding this massive $3.9 billion tax increase from the public.

And guess what happened?

The lower court judge ruled against Bully Bob saying “the public has a right to know.”

Bob Ferguson found out there was a judge in Olympia who didn’t automatically bow down to Bob.

That forced the AG to conspire with the state supreme court.

And their collusion was done publicly.

Bob Ferguson got the state supreme court to order the judge to rule differently than he wanted to.

So Bob Ferguson “won.”

He “succeeded” at preventing the people from voting and hiding the cost of this massive tax increase from the public and blocking the voting records of the Democrats from being printed in the voters’ pamphlet.

But he had already accomplished that before the lawsuit. 

The lawsuit forced him to fight tooth and nail to stop a vote and block information from getting to the public.

It forced him to illustrate how desperate he was to keep the Democrats’ $3.9 billion Cap & Trade bill a secret.

It’d be easy to walk away from that experience saying “the system is rigged, so I’ll never challenge the AG again.”

Instead, 6 days later, I was right back in court challenging Bob Ferguson on something else (see above).

Despite all the roadblocks thrown in our way, I’m still fighting for our initiatives and for the people’s right to vote.

I’m urging you — while I’m fighting to help our state and our nation — to please donate to my legal defense fund so I can appeal the AG’s ridiculously unconstitutional restrictions on the First Amendment and make sure what he’s doing to me and my family never happens to anyone else ever again.
