Catherine Crabill’s insanity demonstrated in her own words.

From the High Country News:

Catherine Crabill of Aragon, N.M., in Catron County, is furious at Outside magazine’s November article, “War for the West.” She writes in a letter to Outside published in the Hatch, N.M., Courier: “By golly, I never would have recognized my husband or myself in your “article” had it not had our names attached to it! What drivel!’

To correct the impression Outside gave that she and her husband were off the wall, Crabill describes her real views: “That as a result of Presidential Executive Order, the Sec. of the Treasury holds all the power of the Executive Branch and answers to the globalist elite. That there is an agenda that is in our Public Law to surrender our country to the United Nations, and that we are on the verge of having our economy pulled out from under us by all of the above. I mean, it just goes on and on! And these globalists just love you greenies for helping their program along.”

But Crabill confesses to a shameful earlier period when she “sat with you people for years in places like Aspen’s Pour La France quaffing croissants and cappuccinos, talking custom Italian racing bicycles (All campy, of course …) and gear ratios. I’ve hung with you people on the sundeck of Aspen Mountain, skiing out of bounds …”

“… on behalf of myself and my family, I thank all of my dear friends and neighbors in Catron Country for teaching us what it means to be dear friends and neighbors, and forgiving me for having been one of you-people in a former life.” ((Ed Marston. “Heard Around the West.” High Country News. 11 Dec 1995. <>.))

Gotta love how she’s smashing environmentalists when the chairman of the 99th Legislative District Republican Committee, Allen Webb, was attacking Delegate Pollard for supposedly failing to bring “‘green’ businesses” to the area.

  1. First of two e-mails to be posted…

    To all,

    I had originally intended on responding to Webb’s e-mail below, but then I received the following e-mail from Ms. Crabill… What more needs to be said?

    Dear Fellow Republicans,

    I am amazed at how quickly some who have never spoken to me or asked me about the veracity of these accounts are ready to throw me and my campaign under the bus.

    First of all, you would have had to have been living in the western states during the Clinton administration to understand the tension his policies created during that dreadful time in history. Had I not been there I imagine I would have a difficult time understanding the drama his policies created. Using the Endangered Species Act he destroyed a significant portion of the logging industry that many rural communities depended on to survive. Where I lived the logging was shut down and then the Department of the Interior was moving to shut down ranching by listing some swallow-tail-something-or-other as endangered. They held meetings to inform the community that they may have to ban cattle or fence off their access to the river so the habitat of this bird would not be destroyed. This was completely insane. I thought it was a joke. The Clinton Admin, soon after, determined that forest rangers and other environmental officials were to be armed. This was a first! Combine this with the move to enact more gun legislation and you had gun owners scrambling for additional arms and ammo (sound familiar? Talk about déjà…) It was in this climate of fear (of losing one’s livelihood, not starting a range war…) that the Clinton Admin started by reporting on “white supremacist” and “cults” (believers in “end time” events) as a threat to domestic security, (again, sound familiar? Have you read the DHS report and the profile they have on you?) It seemed everyone who was against Clinton’s policies were to have their character assassinated by this type of “profiling”. That’s what you have to do. You have to “demonize” a group of people that resist you so you can attack them. That’s when our Government under Janet Reno murdered those dozens of men, women, and children in Waco, because they were considered a “cult” and may have been selling guns without permits. Do you soon forget the horror of that event? How many Americans sympathized with them? Not many. Why? Because Clinton had done his job successfully removing any regard for “those” people. They must have “asked for it”. Think about that. We sure did, because my God fearing, freedom loving, independent ranchers and loggers, were being made a part of his profiled “hit list”. They were being profiled as racists and gun loving lunatics. No one seemed to care that they were neither. Then they went after that family in Ruby Ridge and shot a mother as she stood holding her baby in an open door way. They were self-proclaimed racists. So did they “ask for it”? Should we declare open season on racists? I am no racist and have the bona fides to prove it. I am not a gun owner but I did participate with the Women on Target group in White Stone last year and intend to do so again. If I ever feel competant with a fire arm I will not be ashamed to obtain one. I am not a cult member and neither were my neighbors any of these things. But I didn’t get to define who I was, neither did my neighbors. The Clinton Admin did. (Now the Obama Admin is.)

    I submit rather than be outraged at a group of innocent Americans terrorised into believing that our government was capable of any act of violence against them without any indictment or other due process, you should rather be outraged at our government! We didn’t need a “conspiracy theory” about what might happen, it was happening.

    As far as the Bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City which happened during this season of other horrific events, I did and do believe that our government was culpable in the OKC bombing. This was not based on a “conspiracy theory” but on the analysis of Brigadier General Benjamin Partin (retired) who resides in Alexandria, Virginia who is an expert in weapons development. General Partin spent his own time and his own money personally visiting the site in OKC and publishing his analysis. From there he hand delivered a copy PERSONALLY to every single member of Congress. Congressman Trafficant was the only one willing to stand with him and call for a press conference to address it. The very next day Trafficant canceled and never spoke to the General again. This man is a patriot and a hero and I do not and will not recant my confidence in his report. I attach this youtube link for your reference: I also don’t believe the official report of who shot JFK, does that scare you? General Partin’s assessment was brilliant and as far as I will ever be concerned, irrefutable.

    I am not ashamed of standing with my friends and neighbors in New Mexico from the domestic terrorists known as our own government. I am thankful that the immediacy of that particular threat passed without greater conflict. These events happened 15 years ago and there has been nothing in my history since then until this present time that could possibly indicate an obssesion with what the press tried to paint as “anti-government” activity. Nothing. They had to go back 15 years to find anything worth attempting to create and manufacture a frenzy out of. I learned in that day that the press is always willing to make an ass out of anyone they don’t understand or disagree with.

    The reality of what happened, which was in no way represented with any integrity or autheticity in these “news releases”, was a a dark chapter in our nation’s history and we would do well to recognize it being recreated today by our current Administration. This time, however, it is all of you, my fellow conservatives, my fellow Republicans, who are being profiled. Not a remote group islolated by geography and annonimity.

    This is not what I would want to be known for but I will not run from this and I sure as heck will not apologize for it. Again, the recently released Homeland Security Report absolutely vindicates the concerns many honest, noble, American patriots, had then and, unfortunately, have now.

    If this destroys the Republican Party’s confidence in me, so be it. I intend to stay true to my charge. I will not be dropping out of this race. In fact, I would think this should inspire greater confidence in my charcter as someone who will not be silent in the face of evil and will not remain silent when faced with a threat to my family, community, or my nation. In other words, should I win this election, when I swear to uphold and defend the Constitution of our State and/or our Nation. I will actually mean it.

    If you go to my website and refresh your minds and thoughts with the concerns of our Founding Fathers in the Patriots Corner you will be reminded that if we fail to learn from the past we will and are repeating it. In fact, everyone of the signers of the Declaration of Independence would be on Clinton’s and Obama’s Domestic Terrorist List. I consider myself in good company.

    Feel free to share this with anyone who cares. I will not be bullied by a leftist blog who wouldn’t understand the truth or rightousness or freedom if it bit him you-know-where.

    Call with questions or concerns. I so appreciate a straight forward approach rather than cowardly sniping behind my back.

    I am aware of the blog and/or e-mail that you have sent out as shown below and I am aware that you sent this e-mail to Republicans and non-republicans throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia:

    “To all,

    Well… That low filing fee to run for the Republican nomination for the 99th District of the Virginia House of Delegates has really come back to bite the GOP somewhere unpleasant. When will the Republican Party learn to not waste resources and time running candidates in races that are highly unlikely to be won? Hopefully somebody with some sense (e.g., Carol Dawson, Jeannie Kling, to name a few) can convince this woman to withdraw her candidacy, the sooner the better…”

    Let me make a direct statement as the Chairman of the 99th Legislative District Republican Committee. You are coming dangerously close to violating not just the principles of the Party, but the letter of the law with regard to the Party Plan and any pledge you may have signed in the past. As the presumptive nominee, Catherine is technically the Republican Candidate. To insult other Republicans by calling them “kooks” and to forward the disparaging comments of a “blogger” like Mr. Watson who has made no secret of his desire to get Albert Pollard elected, is paramount to a violation of the Party Plan, from my perspective. I am also aware that you are currently a member of the Richmond County Committee and have made comments with regard to your desire to seek elected office as a Republican.

    If that is true, I would step lightly henceforth, Mr. Cupp.

    To all who received this e-mail:

    As the Chairman of the 99th Legislative District Republican Committee, I am appalled by this sort of presumptive condemnation and downright slander against a Republican candidate by any person who claims to be a Republican and particularly a person who has claimed to be a “conservative” and is an official member of a local Committee. To peddle a “quote”, opinion or analysis from a blog that is used almost exclusively to support the Democrat Party, which was motivated by a person who has expressly stated that he has (and still) supports Albert Pollard (the liberal Democrat incumbent whom this candidate will face), is reprehensible. For those of you who are not members of a Republican Committee or hold a position in the Party, this may sound harsh, but the principles and rules of both Parties are very clear in this regard. Mr. Cupp has come very close to violating the very principles that he agreed to uphold when he submitted his name to be considered for membership. That request for membership is completely voluntary and such membership comes with rights, privileges, responsibilities and duties. The rules do not compel anyone to actively support, give money, work for or even express a fondness for any candidate or elected official. However,, there are specific regulations and precedents that refer to how one should conduct themselves when speaking openly about any nominee. Sending such an e-mail beyond the Party structure and to members of the Press constitutes speaking “openly” in my humble opinion. I also believe that being a member of the Party does require that a person handle themselves in a decent and respectable manner when dealing with other Republicans

    Again, being a member is a personal choice. One would assume that a member of the legal profession would be more than aware of such things.

  3. A third e-mail, for good measure… Shame this html posting won’t give the full effect of capitalized, boldened, different sized letters.

    You connected my wife’s name to your outrageously scurrilous venom below.


  4. Wow, I “almost exclusively […] support the Democrat Party”. So, uh…when did Bill Bolling, Ken Cuccinelli, and D.J. McGuire (see right sidebar) become Democrats?

    And I’m sure former Caroline County Supervisor Calvin Taylor, former Commonwealth’s Attorney Harvey Latney, and former Sheriff Homer Johnson (all Democrats) would find that diatribe very amusing.

    And did he miss my post about John Brownlee and what effect his “moral test” of legislation would have on a ban on abortion (it was right by the post he commented on)? Hell, Spank That Donkey linked to that post! He must be a Democrat. Dammit, that bastard had me fooled.

    What about some of my other pro-Cuccinelli, anti-Brownlee posts? Damn Shaun Kenney for linking to one of them. Must be a hard job to infiltrate the Republican Party of Virginia and the American Life League, but somehow, Kenney managed to do it.

    And then there’s those pinko-commies over at Snapped Shot and BVBL linked to my post last year when I posted the audio of Mark Warner having a “‘macaca’ moment”!
