Oz Standow

Today in the mail I get a CD with 2,180 Public Records in it regarding the Fossum Investigation concerning Phil Tyler, Ozzie Knezovich, and John McGrath. That one is going to take me awhile to go through, but it is already really interesting. Then a short time later I get one from the City of Spokane who are much faster and better with their PRR Responses. The City PRR is adjunct to one I have going with the County which won’t be produced until sometime in November.

What is interesting about the new story I’m working on is that it deals with one of Ozzie’s folks who had some problems with RCW 9.73 just like Brian Standow might have since he admitted to making recordings to several people including Daniel Walters of the Inlander. The MSM doesn’t know about this story I’m working on, but preliminary indications are that because of Ozzie it might cost us some more money…we will have to see.

Darn it and I was going to try and be lazy again today!!! 😊

Walters me lazy

For those that missed it, here is Brain Standow’s Domestic Violence Arrest Report that Ozzie told Daniel Walters he went to the Prosecutor on Standow’s behalf for.

Well that figures…just as I’m finishing this story I get another PRR Response from the City on an improperly handled Rape Investigation…where is that unlazy Daniel Walters when you need him…oh that’s right he is in Portland this weekend…oh well!! 😊











Scott Maclay

For people who are not aware Scott M. Maclay died in a motorcycle accident yesterday, a tragic death, but he was doing something he loved. I never met Scott Maclay, but my belief is he was truly doing what he felt was right by trying to expose a number of things happening in our Community. Much of the information Scott provided me turned out to be true and that is something people often overlook.


Rest In Peace Scott Maclay.

I just don’t know how I can get it across to folks that I am not a Liberal, a Conservative, a Libertarian, a Communist, a Maoist, a Makhnovist, or anything other than a DEVOUT CURMUDGEONIST!


Archie for Prez

This Facebook exchange between Mr. Kenney Blessing and myself seems to demonstrate that Mr. Blessing, who certainly appears to be a Conservative, for some reason thinks I’m a Liberal for pointing out a few facts about the Dennis Walters Inlander Story about Brian Standow.

I’ve been called a lot of names in my life and being called names doesn’t bother me but what is disconcerting is to have another Irishman call me a “cupcake”… that just isn’t kosher! 😊

Apparently what Mr. Blessing doesn’t realize is that Curmudgeonists simply like to deal in facts, and as far as the Walters’ story is concerned it this Curmudgeonist is of the belief that the Walters story was motivated by an opportunity for Standow to try and get even with some of the folks that gave him the boot from the Republican Party while at the same time helping his new found friend Ozzie Knezovich out with Ozzie’s hatred for some of the folks in the Republican Party, and Walters’ seized upon that motivation to write a story without regard to motivation, reliability, or fact checking.

So here are a few facts that may help in putting some things in context. Brian Standow had been trying to get on Ozzie’s handpicked Citizens Advisory Board for some time, and documents seem to show he got his wish on or about August 13th, 2018 which as after all of his FB rants about folks that Ozzie has had a long running feud with. Some might question if Standow’s position on Ozzie’s CAB was some type of reward.

CAB Introduce Standow

Since Ozzie’s CAB doesn’t do a good job of keeping their posted Minutes up to date nor do they ever contain much info, and although some of us have heard about what transpired we won’t know for sure until the Minutes of the August 13th, 2018 meeting is available.

CAB Agendas and Minutes

We do know from previous CAB Agendas and Minutes that the May 14, 2018 Agenda reflects that 15 mins was set aside for the Christopher Jackson “Introduction & Vote”.

CAB Agenda May 14, 2018

You might remember that Chris Jackson was a Progressive who ran against Rod Higgins and lost for Position # 1 on the City of Spokane Valley Council. Ozzie doesn’t like Higgins of course.


On an interesting side note another Progressive Ozzie endorsed Brandi Peetz who used to be on Ozzie’s CAB apparently thinks Brian Standow is a peach of a guy.

Ozzie Peetz Endorsement

Aside from all that stuff the May 14th, 2018 CAB minutes reflect that Jackson and Ty Warner were unanimously added to the CAB and were welcomed, leading a reasonable person to conclude that Brian Standow finally got the CAB position he so dearly wanted.

WW II, Walters, Buff

Because of my criticism of this Daniel Walters Inlander Story;

I thought it was important to start capturing some intel on the other side’s “allies” just in case WWIII breaks out.

I will try and do this story in a coherent way so that folks that have been reading my stories for years might be don’t have problems, and I’ll let folks decide on my inability to discern context or intent.

My incoherence blog

Walters I don't trust you context and intent

I do have to admit that I was somewhat lazy as far as this story is concerned because I didn’t go completely through all of the opposing sides available intel, but as an advanced Anacapa Sciences  trained Intelligence Analyst I feel confident I obtained enough intel to establish a numerical probability estimate to establish that my hypothesis and inference is true.

Walters me lazy

DARN IT! The paragraph above might be to incoherent for some of my longtime readers like Daniel Walters, so maybe this will explain it better:

If you have done Intelligence work in the Military and Law Enforcement you know full well that it is important to spend a lot of time developing links between individuals who are the enemy or criminals and produce a product known as a “Link Analysis” which is utilized to show a very clear picture of associations, so I have to admit I was lazy again and even though I have the software I didn’t bother to spend the time doing that for this story as I think the associations and relationships are real clear. Back in the day “Link Analysis” had to be done utilizing phone tolls, wiretaps, surveillance, and a bunch of other stuff. In today’s world however it becomes relatively easy simply by tracking Facebook, Twitter, and other social media.

According to Daniel Walters I have “allies” and belong to some “group”:

Walters Allies Group Maclay or your group

It is always nice to have “allies”, but I’ve never really belonged to any “group” other than the Marine Corps, and the Spokane Police Department so I’m not sure what young Daniel means by “group”. Since I have never met Scott Maclay, or any of the other people apparently in my group nor have I ever been invited to a group meeting I must assume that whatever group it s I belong to they aren’t very well organized, at least at this point.

I don’t think anyone can question the fact that young Daniel Walters belongs to at least one group, and that group would be the Main Stream Media. One thing about most of the MSM I’ve noticed is that they are kind of like a group I used to belong to… Law Enforcement… if something stinky happens they circle the wagons and because they are all good “allies” come to each other’s aid. The difference is that when Law Enforcement does something stinky because there is some oversight they can get in big, big trouble. On the other hand, the MSM has almost no oversight whatsoever so they have it made as far as I’m concerned.

So now let’s take a look at just a small portion of young Daniel Walters “allies” and “group”, which are made up of at least one “Dirty, godless, hateful journalist.”:

3 Madge Dem

4 Jason Wilson

5 Pete Israel

6 Matt Hudson

7 Jamal Raad

8 DR Smith vote Blue

9 Waterkeeper

10 Kate Burke

11 Aaron Jarvis


I don’t think there is any question that the majority of Daniel’s allies are of the Progressive/Liberal persuasion and there is absolutely nothing wrong with being of that persuasion, but that fact does give my allies some idea of what we might be up against should we have to hit the beaches.

If you were to spend the time and energy to go back and look at Daniel’s posts and retweets I’m pretty sure that you would come to the conclusion that he is of the Progressive/Liberal persuasion who is definitely not a fan of President Trump, CMR, which of course is fine unless as a reporter, not an opinion writer, you see the opportunity to seize through an unreliable source a story that without question will put folks of a persuasion opposite of yours in a bad light.

Walters did according to him “Tbf” to Kellyanne Conway after frequent conservative critic Shawn Vestal posted something about Conway’s falsehoods made the point that Conway has a lot to be proud of for being the only one on Trump’s campaign team not to be indicted, arrested, or jailed. Was he trying to be fair to Conway, or just expressing his disdain for anything Trump?

Walters Kellyanne Conway

Daniel Walters is sure one of those “inquiring Daniels” when it comes to Republican stuff, but when it comes to inquiring about the reliability of sources, especially if they seem to have dirt on Republicans, he ain’t to inquiring?

Inquiring Daniel

Okay…Okay…I admit it! I did string young Daniel along or a bit. Just so you know Daniel I wasn’t the least bit worried about Standow recording me, I might not be the sharpest tool in the box, but I do know Standow is the type of unreliable person you don’t put yourself in a position to record you, or for that matter be a sole source for a story, especially with claims that someone told him they were going to kill someone. I have never spoken to Standow, on the phone or otherwise.

If you have any objections to this this story Daniel Walters, please send a letter to the editor.

No recordings you or your allies
