"Ordo et Traditio" formerly "GreenMountainHardRight!" Pulls The Plug Again!


W
e're reluctant to divert from our mission, that is, as an ongoing record of the antics of the Mickey Mouse Machiavelli of Vermont, Kevin W. Blier, but the scrubbing of a recent post over at Ordo et Traditio (scroll down to December 7's post - the cache will remain for a while) caught our eye.  Since the cache will disappear eventually, we've reproduced the deletion:

BlierWatch Not Keeping Good Enough Tabs on "Racist Anti-Gay Fascists"

One shouldn't ignore the inactivity of the girlie-men over at BlierWatch (the homosexual watchdog group who have a obsession with CFACR/Vermont Renewal, Kevin Blier, and any other "right-wing" group or person they imagine has tea with David Duke or members of the Westboro Baptist Church).

Apparently BlierWatch has been spending too much time reading fashion magazines and condemning the Pope's attire (not to mention proclaiming the end of GreenMountainHardRight! to notice a change in the face of the Vermont Right. Could it be that that they are lax in doing their research? Is it possible that in trying to squash all of us horrible "racist anti-gay fascist haters" (Christians, conservatives, and any others who generally find homosexuality to be sinful and immoral) they forgot to keep tabs on...well, why spoil it. I shouldn't have to do their work for them...after all, they are BlierWatch..."

We'd read a post recently over at Green Mountain Daily by Jack McCullough titled An Honest Conservative (yeah, we laughed too!).  It got us to thinking about what had occurred and how the scrubbing of poorly considered thoughts was something that we'd noticed before. McCullough's piece had in part to do with conservatives actually acknowledging error in thought and position, and having the decency to admit it.  A rare trait indeed among the extremists who call themselves "paleocons" (read more on paleoconservatives in this article from the Southern Poverty Law Center Intelligence Report), like the "scribe" at Ordo et Traditio/GreenMountainHardRight!.

Since the blogger at GreenMountainHardRight!, now Ordo et Traditio , never quite gets around to denying his racist connections, we did a little further checking.  Seems he's getting encouragement from this secessionist blog.  And naturally we found that they too link to the Council of Conservative Citizens (formerly known as the White Citizens Council), the League of the South, and Christian Exodus (read more on these well-known hate groups in these Southern Poverty Law Center Intelligence Reports here, here, here and here).  They use a service provided by this secessionist site that likewise links to various known hate groups and Christian Identity organizations.  You won't find any references to "ha(ving) tea with David Duke" in the various Intelligence Reports but there's plenty on these groups selling Duke's books and discussing his ideas.

We understand that the writer over at Ordo et Traditio has said elsewhere that he has conviction in his moral and spiritual beliefs.  Does that conviction extend to his blogging?  Apparently not so much.  We again found that he'd shed yet another skin, but not for very long before shedding the next one too.  You can find him briefly in this Google cache of his new but now gone umpteenth blog at a winger blogging site called TownHall.  Apparently stung by our revelations about various links on his old blogs to racist organizations and ideologues, he's deleted his earlier links to sites like Sailer's and vdare.com, as well as his ode to the racist Samuel Francis, eulogized by none other than David Duke who has called Francis "a true brother in the Cause."  He neglected to delete however his link to the founder of the extremely racist (yeah, redundant but fits this particular group of racial separatists) League of the South, Thomas E. Woods, Jr.  Here's another one of his announcements of the move to the TownHall blogging site from the now closed Blogger site (Google cache):

Well, it seems that's all over now too.  Perhaps he'll be back.  Or perhaps all this crap he's churned out might eventually turn into campaign blowback for a close family member's recurring political endeavours.  Too early to say, yet.  We'll see... "after all, we are BlierWatch."

   Isn't that right, Matt?

NH GOP Jammin'    Part Four


T
his one just keeps on givin'.

In a RawStory article on a possible Abramoff connection in the New Hampshire 2002 election cycle from last May, an early mention was made of dates that coincide with the NH Gop phone-jamming scandal and an apparently improper contribution from tribes that had been previously linked to Abramoff's illegal funneling of funds to GOP candidates.

This week we learn from a LostNationTV post titled "Did Abramoff Pay for NH Phone Jamming?" that ex-jailbird and former boss of Kevin Blier, Chuck McGee has said in an August deposition that funds were transfered from the Abramoff connected out-of-state tribes with gambling interests to the NH GOP just days before the phone-jamming scheme was put into action.  This political contribution was for the exact amount paid to the the firm, Republican Marketplace, that was hired to jam the Democrats phone banks.

From the Manchester Union Leader's John Distaso:
"SPECIAL DELIVERY

Former Republican State Committee executive director Charles McGee said under oath that a staffer for Sen. Judd Gregg delivered checks from two clients of now-jailed lobbyist Jack Abramoff to the party office about a week before the 2002 election.

The donations from the Mississippi Choctaw and Agua Calienti tribes totaled $15,000. That is about the same amount McGee then paid a consulting firm to hire the telemarketer that illegally jammed Democratic and union get-out-the-vote phone banks with hang-up calls.

While questioning McGee in an Aug. 30 deposition in the now-settled phone-jamming civil suit, Democratic attorney Paul Twomey said, "But you were aware that somebody working for Senator Gregg, either his office or his campaign, hand-delivered those checks to the Republican State Committee."

McGee responded, "I believe that's correct."

Former state GOP office manager Kristy Stuart gave similar testimony.

[snip]

Nearly a year ago, Gregg turned over to charity $12,000 in donations he had received in 2002 and 2004 from the two tribes."
Given McGee's earlier recollection that Blier was aware of the scheme before its implementation (see the FBI report on McGee's interview, pgs 4 & 6) and these revelations about a potential Abramoff connection to that scheme, it would now seem even more important than ever to know what degree of separation, if any, there is between Blier and the now exposed and discredited GOP culture of corruption.
