Washington State Public Lands Candidate, Stalking Gold Bar Reporter

Pin It

Steve McLaughlin is running for lands commissioner, this is a man we should all be very afraid of. Unfortunately he has already bought most of the citizens votes.

I can tell you that he didn’t lead anything in Okanogan County. He might have suggested a few grants but no one over there has ever heard of this guy til he made a run for commissioner.

Stevens County was also burned, I lost my own house: Trust me, this guy was no where near any of us.

There is also the matter of the fact that his experience with Sound and Sea was mostly for exactly what it says, Sea and the Sea Coasts so why would he be training firefighters for lands, or any first responder? Maybe for water rescue or emergencies.

I’m warning everyone now, bad things are going to happen to us if this guy gets elected.

Steve McLaughlin, candidate for public lands stalking Gold Bar Reporter, Snohomish County public emails confirm. ” birds of the same feathers flock together as do pigs and swine…”

In late 2015, Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management released terminated director John Pennington’s ( Pennington) email communication from July 2014.  In Pennington’s emails my suspicions were correct, John Pennington had a man stalking me in Gold Bar Washington.

John, Thanks. I’ll keep my eye out. If she’s from the Gold Bar area, the odds are I’ll find her since we have a home at Index.

Hi John,

Somebody sent the email to me below over the weekend from Gold Bar Reporter. Don’t know who Brownie Jr is, but somehow they got onto your email.  Interesting.  Do you have any info on this?

I authenticate this email with the following: You took ICS 400 from me and we saw each other on Wednesday and discussed using me at the EOC for strategy.

Steve McLaughlin

Once I retrieved access confirming what I already knew ” a man was stalking me at my home, sitting at the end of a cul-de-sac of my street for hours and days on time, mainly over the weekend”, I immediately looked for a picture of Steve McLaughlin, and confirmed he was the man stalking me at my residential home in Gold Bar.

Steve McLaughlin spent most of the summer of 2014 stalking the Gold Bar Reporter as a favor to Pennington. But why?

Pennington former emergency management director was terminated after he caused 43 people to suffocate to death in the Oso mudslides, because instead of doing his job, Pennington was on the east coast performing his private contracts. Sadly for his victims, Pennington told his department to stand down until he arrived from D.C., causing a four day delay in getting much needed FEMA assistance.

Recently released email communication from Snohomish County also confirms beyond any doubt that Pennington and his forth wife, Crystal Hill Pennington ( convicted of bank fraud using an alias last name Berg – Snohomish County, 2005; and in North Carolina, using alias of Chris Hill in 2000)  are anonymously gang stalking the Gold Bar Reporter on his website titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”

Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers is also a blogger on the Penningtons’ website, the Sky Valley Chronicle.

John Pennington, Crystal Hill Pennington and Joe Beavers are being sued for racketeering and defamation with depositions are expected to begin during the summer of 2017.

Knowing what I know about Steve McLaughlin criminal stalking me at my home, I was shocked to learn in the middle of this year that a criminal like Steve McLaughlin is running for public lands commissioner.

Simply put, Steve McLaughlin is unfit for Public Lands Commissioner and should be in jail for criminal stalking and conspiracy to harm.

Here’s what we know about McLaughlin. 

Steve McLaughlin is a member of a secret organization, some also refer to this organization as ” Domestic Spying” or “secret police force” called Stratfor, was stalking the Gold Bar Reporter at her home as a favor to terminated former director John E. Pennington ( Pennington).

Steve McLaughlin claims to be have unique qualities ( but he left off criminal stalking)


I’ve been connected to the land and sea my entire life, and after traveling the world, there is no place I would rather live. I am a lifelong conservationist, mountain climber, and avid outdoorsman.

Gold Bar Reporter comments:  Yes this is true that McLaughlin has been connected to land and sea via his involvement in domestic spying group of Stratfor.

Our public trust lands and the 1,800 employees and nearly 20,000 private sector jobs the DNR timber harvests produce need experienced, balanced leadership. I want to manage our lands so my grandchildren can have the benefit of experiencing what I have during my life here.

Gold Bar Reporter comments:  It appears that McLaughlin is very good at regurgitating public facts from websites.  Ok.

A career in military service will teach you a few things – loyalty, honesty, service, tolerance and tenacity. As a naval officer, I’ve worked with the most diverse group of people there is, and find value in everyone. After retiring, I’ve focused on teaching incident command to first responders, protecting critical infrastructure through coordinated efforts across multi-jurisdictions. I know firsthand how to lead large, diverse organizations and bring the best out in people. I’m uniquely prepared to be your next Commissioner of Public Lands and want to get on with the business of working with the good people at DNR, use science to guide our decisions and work in collaboration with the people who have a stake and dependency on our public trust lands. I would appreciate your vote. Thank you.

Gold Bar Reporter comments:  It appears that McLaughlin believes that criminal stalking of reporters speaks to his loyalty, honesty, service,  tolerance, etc .  Ok, suppose in his World of domestic spying with Stratfor, he might perceive his criminal behavior as justifying.  Opinion, ok.  

►  I have faithfully served my country with distinction for 25 years in the United States Navy .

Gold Bar Reporter comments: McLaughlin should fess up about what his involvement with the US Government is.  We believe based on our research and with WikiLeaks information posted on Tor search engines that McLaughlin is part of the secret domestic spying ring called “Stratfor” but go find it for yourself.

►  I have been a defense contractor and a FEMA Incident Management Instructor for the past 10 years.

Gold Bar Reporter comments: Ok, now this is interesting and the probably the main reason why McLaughlin decided to criminally stalk the Gold Bar Reporter at her home.  If you read the Gold Bar Reporter’s investigative report on John Pennington, below, you’d know that John Pennington was an uneducated bum who received a political appointment to FEMA Region X as a political favor to the late Senator Jennifer Dunn. But then President George E Bush finally did what we did, ran a background check on Pennington.
►  I led efforts to permanently preserve the last remaining old-growth forest in Northern Puget Sound, with 1,400 year old trees

Gold Bar Reporter comments: Another lie.  Actually, McLaughlin did not “led” efforts, the US Forest Service did.

See http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/rsl/publications/oldgrowth/old-growth-ca-or-wa.pdf

►  I drafted the Kosovo Peacekeeping plan for Gen. Wesley Clark

Gold Bar Reporter comments:  Another lie, as NATO drafted the plan.


►  I led reconstruction efforts for the Okanogan community that suffered a catastrophic wildfire

Gold Bar Reporter comments:  Another lie, Recovery efforts on the wildfires in Okanogen County were led mainly by private and non-profit groups.

►  I have taught thousands of Washington State firefighters, police, and other first-responders
►  I started and led three organizations to serve others:

 1) to help prevent suicide among veterans,
2) to provide relief to communities hit by natural disasters,
3) to get citizens engaged to be involved in the governmental process by setting the example

Gold Bar Reporter comments:  Another lie, as we could find no public record to support McLaughlin’s assertion that he taught anything.  We could fin no evidence that helped a single veteran. But we did find public email communication between McLaughlin and Pennington documenting that the Gold Bar Reporter’s post about Steve McLaughlin criminally stalking her at her home were right on target. 

Steve McLaughlin’s email ( below) sent and received from John Pennington, former political appointee terminated for criminal stalking of the Gold Bar Reporter speaks for itself. For more information on John Pennington keep reading below. Note that the Gold Bar Reporter has NEVER been sued for defamation or  libel. However, we’d welcome such a suit.
