A Very Well Researched And Thoughtful Endorsement!

Now I also KNOW I’m on the right track in showing what real conservatism is.  🙂

Thank you Ryan!

“Vote for Paul Murphy (Write-In) for Sheriff”

“Paul Murphy
I don’t know Paul Murphy personally. I am voting for him (Write-IN for Sheriff) because I think he is a man of integrity who has a plan to create a compact, efficient, appropriate law and justice infrastructure in Whatcom County. I am aware of fact that Marxists like myself don’t generally vote for conservatives. But this is still a small county. I’m voting for the man and his vision anyway.

After reading more about Paul Murphy, I realized who he is and who he was forced to become and why he is running for Sheriff. First, read his blog and this slideshare (very important!) to understand why he is running for office and who is he is as a man. Unfortunately, I know too much about the existential dilemmas Detective Murphy experienced. I’m going to summarize them for you and expand of the struggle of whistleblowers on an abstract level in blue below. But you make sure to read his slideshare to know his full story and details.

In all aspects of modern society, especially but not exclusively energy production, mining and resource extraction, technology control, *investment banking*, propaganda and knowledge dissemination, nation state relations, state based security services, local and regional economies, money supply, narcotics trafficking, failed state economies, law and justice, government budgeting and processes, regulatory agencies, all diplomatic corps, international aid agencies (in short) in all *loci of power across the globe*, the systems of control and power that we live in are supported, organized and beholden to cesspools of corruption and abuse of power. This is how the world works now. All over.

Most of the time, this is hidden from all us for some very good reasons. If normal people knew how absolutely corrupt and fraudulent the world of power really was, they might do something about it. But most of us are just too careless, scared or clueless to go that route. We all know what happens if we confront power! And none of it is good. If we do discover something truly disconcerting, most of behave just like good Germans during WWII: we bury our heads (deep) in the sand and simply move on. So we can keep our jobs. So we don’t cause any trouble. So we can be ‘bright, shiny, happy people making friends’.

But every now and then, someone who does his job well, someone with integrity stares right down into the abyss of that cesspool and corruption and decides they need to do something about it. This is what Paul Murphy did. He didn’t start out as some crusader. He just looked and saw something he couldn’t believe. In some miracle of chutzpah, the kind that restores our faith in the heroes of this world, Paul couldn’t let it go. So he stared into the abyss and abyss behaved as predicted: it reached up, grabbed him by the throat and tried to drag him down. Paul wouldn’t let it. In the end, he came out better than many other whistle blowers fare. His concerns about the lapses in EHM (“electronic home monitoring”) uncovered what is probably a nationwide scandal that’s not being investigated. After he was essentially fired for his efforts, he received a settlement and WA actually enacted legislation tightening up EHM loopholes (1,2) . I personally know others who have fared much worse than this for similar efforts.

Think about for a moment what it means to have private EHM throughout all the counties in this country that don’t necessarily report EHM alarms to their respective governmental jurisdictions! Imagine a “pool of assets” with criminal backgrounds on EHM whose location can be manipulated to make it appear they are still at home when in fact they are not! Can you think of select ’employers’ who could use such a crowd of ghosts? I sure can. Paul Murphy is a national hero living right here in Whatcom County. He is not going to get any awards for being such. I suggest you give him your Write-IN vote for Sheriff instead.”

Write In Candidate For Sheriff: Paul Murphy

Sign - 2

Greetings To All,

Time is short. Too short to address every single post or video being made appealing for a big and expensive jail complex, but I’ll summarize it this way for now:

Of course we want the jail staff and inmates alike to work and be housed in a fully functional, secure, safe and humane environment. That’s a given and I’m hearing no voices in opposition to that, contrary to what is being implied by proponents.

But that does not equate to buying into the hype and the various screeds demanding a $245 million dollar construction ($100 million construction + $145 million loan interest) on Labounty Rd., outside the city limits of Bellingham.

That outrageous number doesn’t even account for the estimated $600 million to $1.1 BILLION dollar (Yes, you read that right) long term operating costs.

We’re looking at a minimum, based on accepted estimates, of $845 MILLION dollars to $1.345 BILLION dollars in initial construction and operating costs over the long term. A county of this relatively small size cannot afford such a lavish expenditure and it’s simply irresponsible to do it.

If elected, my plan will be to build a safe, modern, maximum security facility, within the city limits of Bellingham, adjacent to the courthouse, without raising taxes and on existing funds, to be completed and operational within 4 years.

It CAN be done and it needs to be done.

If you agree, please write in Paul Murphy for sheriff of Whatcom County by November 3rd so we can get the jail project and WCSO expenditures back on an accountable and fiscally responsible path.

Also, I do have written confirmation of the lawful ability for a person to mount a write in campaign.  You’ll find the county auditor email linked on the facebook page below.

Thank you for your support,

I’ll update this website further as I have time, but also check the facebook page ‘Murphy For Sheriff’ for a biographical about me, my platform statement and other comments, relating to what you can expect to see if I’m elected sheriff of Whatcom County.

‘David vs Goliath’

I just heard about this podcast today. Figured I’d share it here, since if I hadn’t heard about it, I’m guessing most Whatcom County people hadn’t either.

Yours truly is discussed from 16:45 to 22:00 on the 07-04-15 Dick Donahue’s Wealth Wake Up Program with Glen Morgan.

Although I am puzzled that to this date, no one locally has sought my firsthand perspective of what happened and why, I would like to thank Dick and Glen both for telling the other side of this. There’s actually quite a lot to what happened. It’s long and it’s ‘complicated’ as people say today, but this was still a pretty good summation.

For the record, there was no ‘severance.’ I was wrongly fired on trumped up nonsense and Whatcom county essentially admitted to it when they came running to us with a $300K settlement offer and rolled back Elfo’s termination so I could ‘resign.’

That may sound like a lot of money, but trust me, after the attorney is paid and costs are calculated, there’s not much left. We came away from it in the black, but very upside-down from what it actually cost me in terms of reputation, career, retirement, etc.

Still, I stand a totally vindicated man now in spite of what Elfo et al have publicly stated on several occasions and for that I am very grateful.

Note: I called in to the KGMI radio show the day Dillon Honcoop and Bill Elfo teamed up to rail against me and publicly trash my reputation on air with what are now proven falsehoods. Honcoop wouldn’t even accept the call to at least hear my side of the events and KGMI hasn’t returned any calls at all since that time. It was a totally one-sided, very slanted slam job against me and my character, presumably to help defend Elfo and if I do say, a totally unprofessional way to conduct a program. I know why Honcoop has a beef with me, but I won’t get into it here. Let’s just say it was ‘duty related’ from when I was on patrol. The point is that KGMI as a radio station has been in Elfo’s back pocket on this issue and continues to block my comments and responses on their website posts even now.
