Chaos Erupts on Convention Floor Over Ron Paul Delegates…

August 28, 2012

BUT THAT IS NOT THE REAL STORY… THIS IS THE REAL STORY.. 

Palin: Rules Change ‘Attack on Grassroots’ This story is NOT getting the play it deserves… Changing the Rules is a hybrid action mimicking what happened to Hillary Clinton in May 08′ resulting in stolen delegates.

 

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin joined a chorus of grassroots conservatives in calling for two proposed rule changes, backed by the top brass of Mitt Romney’s campaign, to be rejected on the floor of the Republican National Convention. Palin said the two proposed rule changes that would impact delegates and would allow the RNC to change the party rules in between conventions in the future were “very disappointing” and “must be rejected.”

“It’s a direct attack on grassroots activists by the GOP establishment, and it must be rejected,” Palin wrote in a Facebook note after spending a day in Arizona campaigning before thousands for Arizona House candidate Kirk Adams (R). “Without the energy and wisdom of the grassroots, the GOP would not have had the historic 2010 electoral victories. That’s why the controversial rule change being debated at the RNC convention right now is so very disappointing.

“We have to remember that this election is not just about replacing the party in power. It’s about who and what we replace it with.”

Palin then linked to Michelle Malkin’s thorough, real-time updates concerning the looming fight over the proposed rule changes.

On Friday, Republican officials associated with the Romney campaign strong-armed two rule changes into the draft platform. The first rule would have effectively allowed future presidential candidates — and not states — to choose the delegates that represent them. In what appears to be a compromise, the text of the rule has been changed to allow states to still select delegates.

Of more concern, though, is Rule 12, and the compromise on selecting delegates will be moot if Rule 12 remains in place.

Rule 12 would allow the RNC to change the rules between conventions if 75% of committee members agree to do so. Since committee members usually agree to what the RNC chair wants, this effectively is a rubber stamp that allows the RNC to amend the rules whenever it wants.


“As long as the proposed Rule 12 remains in place, this ‘deal’ or ‘compromise’ must be a no-go,” Malkin wrote. “Don’t back down, activists!”


Conservative talk radio host and author Mark Levin said: “the power grab was akin to something President Barack Obama would do.”

 

“Conservatives of all stripes, especially Tea Party activists, this is an attempt to destroy your ability to influence the presidential and vice presidential nomination process in the Republican Party,” Levin wrote. “It is an attempt to eviscerate the input of state parties. It is a brazen assault on the grassroots. And it is sleazy to the core.”

A Romney delegate from Georgia, Julianne Thompson, wrote that the Republican establishment was “essentially striking the first blow that chips” away at the freedoms Republicans have been fighting for by disenfranchising “the very people that turned the tide for the GOP in 2010 by returning power in the U.S. House of Representatives to Republicans.”

Thompson noted that this rule change would allow large campaign donors to be rewarded with delegate positions, which would be given out like ambassadorships.

 

In a letter to the national rules committee, the Texas delegation said: “The only way a floor fight can be avoided is if the rule is stricken.”

Prominent conservatives noted that these objections were not being made “by a bunch of disgruntled Ron Paul supporters,” but by “a group of long-time conservative activists, even ‘party regulars’ and lots of Romney supporters, many who go back to the Goldwater days.”

Morton Blackwell, an influential conservative from Virginia who worked in the Reagan administration, said the rules could “fundamentally change our Republican Party — and not for the better.”

“These rule changes are the most awful I’ve ever seen come before any National Convention,” Blackwell wrote. “This fight is too important to not make a stand.”

Six states’ delegations must insist on a roll call vote for Rule 12 to be stricken.

On an appearance on FOX News’ “Hannity” on Monday from Arizona, Palin talked about how important the grassroots are to the future of the party and country.

“We need people to agree with the sudden and relentless reform that is needed to tackle the problems in D.C.,” Palin said. “The status quo has got to go.”

    Well here we go- Grassroots Republicans are under attack just as we Hillary supporters were in 2008. Anyone that doesn’t believe we have ONE Party between the Democrats and Republicans has been living in a vacuum for the last 4 yrs and needs to wake-up.

    I chose to use the Sarah Palin article as the example for what we know to be True. The 2008 Election was stolen from Hillary in an overtly Ham-handed way… as a primer for what is happening now at the Republican Convention. The TWO Parties are joining hands and becoming ONE… The only difference between them will be WHO CONTROLS THE SEAT OF POWER? THE REPUBLICANS OR THE DEMOCRATS?

    In essence this fight, the power struggle unseen by the public, is happening behind the scenes away from the prying eyes of the public. The electioneers are thoroughly engrossed in the convention hoop-la unaware of the power players behind the scenes and the underdog representative, Sarah Palin struggling to gain a foothold on this monstrosity (playing by the Rules) to once again ensure it will be thwarted.

    Palin needs to get busy using her influence and clout as the spoiler to the Establishment’s well made plans of removing each state’s POWER to select it’s own delegates as the people’s representatives from their own state.

    Like everything else we do… it will take time for the public to realize the power play that has taken place by Establishment Republicans at tonight’s Convention.

    Transcript of Ann Romney’s remarks at the Republican National Convention
    By AP/ Published: August 28, 2012
    ___

    “I want to talk to you tonight not about politics and not about party. And while there are many important issues we’ll hear discussed in this convention and throughout this campaign, tonight I want to talk to you from my heart about our hearts.

    I want to talk not about what divides us, but what holds us together as an American family. I want to talk to you tonight about that one great thing that unites us, that one thing that brings us our greatest joy when times are good, and the deepest solace in our dark hours.

    Tonight I want to talk to you about love.

    I want to talk to you about the deep and abiding love I have for a man I met at a dance many years ago. And the profound love I have, and I know we share, for this country.

    I want to talk to you about that love so deep only a mother can fathom it — the love we have for our children and our children’s children.

    And I want us to think tonight about the love we all share for those Americans, our brothers and sisters, who are going through difficult times, whose days are never easy, nights are always long, and whose work never seems done.

    They are here among us tonight in this hall; they are here in neighborhoods across Tampa and all across America. The parents who lie awake at night side by side, wondering how they’ll be able to pay the mortgage or make the rent; the single dad who’s working extra hours tonight, so that his kids can buy some new clothes to go back to school, can take a school trip or play a sport, so his kids can feel. like the other kids.

    And the working moms who love their jobs but would like to work just a little less to spend more time with the kids, but that’s just out of the question with this economy. Or that couple who would like to have another child, but wonder how will they afford it.

    I’ve been all across this country for the past year and a half and heard these stories of how hard it is to get ahead now. I’ve heard your voices: “I’m running in place,” ‘’we just can’t get ahead.”

    Sometimes I think that late at night, if we were all silent for just a few moments and listened carefully, we could hear a great collective sigh from the moms and dads across America who made it through another day, and know that they’ll make it through another one tomorrow. But in that end of the day moment, they just aren’t sure how.

    And if you listen carefully, you’ll hear the women sighing a little bit more than the men. It’s how it is, isn’t it?

    It’s the moms who always have to work a little harder, to make everything right.

    It’s the moms of this nation — single, married, widowed — who really hold this country together. We’re the mothers, we’re the wives, we’re the grandmothers, we’re the big sisters, we’re the little sisters, we’re the daughters.

    You know it’s true, don’t you? You’re the ones who always have to do a little more.”

    Ann Romney’s speech doesn’t sound that inspiring when reading it- but, when you hear her speaking in soft muted tones she draws you in with words we haven’t heard as the focus of any speeches over the last four years, especially the words coming from the overwhelming negativity of the First Lady, like suffering, sacrifice, pain, broken souls, work harder and it’s all our fault.

    WOW!

  15. August 29, 2012 9:24 am

    From Ulsterman on RNC opening and Ann.

    She was the big star tonight. Her words are what will be replayed for the next 24 hours. She will be who the media talks about tomorrow and it will be tough for the pro-Obama
    media to spin her negative. She was that good tonight. Might have been the very best speech by a candidate’s spouse I’ve ever watched. Actually scratch that. It WAS the very best speech by a candidate’s spouse I’ve ever watched. Took that “War on Women” bullsh-t and shoved right back up Obama and Jarrett’s ass. (I think they share the same one.)

    You asked me if we had anything to do with Biden cancelling the first day Florida trip. Can’t say for certain. They were likely nervous about appearing overly political with the hurricane. What I do know is we let it be known to them we knew what they were up to. I do know there were heated conversations between Chicago and the White House/Axelrod/Jarrett/Plouffe about what to do about that. Getting inside their heads is a big part of what we are doing with this and the last month or so has been very productive for us on that.

    More good news on the Romney campaign. They are preparing to unleash a multi-state/multi-tens of millions of dollars advertising blitz against Obama following the GOP convention. They got money to burn now and that has the Obama people very concerned. Also heard there was a Florida GOP operative sharing with the media how the internals in that state show Romney winning by at least 3%. People are getting more open about sharing some of the stuff we’ve already laid out there. So far that end of things is going as planned.

    Don’t want to forget another star tonight. Artur Davis. Didn’t know much about his public skills. Guy has some game. African American. Former Democrat. Former Obama supporter. If I was running the convention I would have given the guy a higher profile speaking slot. His speech actually made the most direct hits to Obama. Right to the f-cking face! Was nice to hear. I’m not running the convention though so there you go.

    If Romney gets a post convention bounce of about 3-5%, followed up with that media blitz they are getting ready to roll out, things are looking just a bit better than 50-50 we actually win this thing. And that’s not a win for Republicans I’m talking about here. That’s a win for America.

    “Made a mistake in 2008. Making it right in 2012″ I don’t remember who said it tonight but it sure as hell struck a chord with me. That’s exactly how I feel.

    Can I repeat? Artur Davis rocked Here’s the speech transcript.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/08/28/Artur-Davis-electrifies-RNC

    He arrived onstage to a standing ovation. “Ladies and gentlemen, thank you. Some of you may know, the last time I spoke at a convention, it turned out I was in the wrong place.

    “So, Tampa, my fellow Republicans, thank you for welcoming me where I belong.”

    Davis praised Mitt Romney as a serious candidate, as opposed to the current president. “He has no illusions about what makes America great, and he doesn’t confuse the presidency with celebrity, or loftiness with leadership,” said Davis, before launching into an explanation of why so many independents and Democrats were turning away from that celebrity-driven president.

    “Now, America is a land of second chances,” said Davis, “and I gather you have room for the estimated 6 million of us who know we got it wrong in 2008 and who want to fix it.” He continued:

    Maybe we should have known that night in Denver that things that begin with plywood Greek columns and artificial smoke typically don’t end well.

    Maybe the Hollywood stars and the glamour blinded us a little: you thought it was the glare, some of us thought it was a halo.

    But in all seriousness, do you know why so many of us believed? We led with our hearts and our dreams that we could be more inclusive than America had ever been, and no candidate had ever spoken so beautifully.

    But dreams meet daybreak: the jobless know what I mean, so do the families who wonder how this Administration could wreck a recovery for three years and counting.

    So many of those high-flown words have faded.

    Remember the President saying of negative politics and untrue ads, “not this time?”

    Who knew “not this time” just meant “not unless the economy is still stuck and we can’t run on our record?”

    Remember, too, when he said, “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal?”

    Who knew the plain English version of it was, “middle America, get ready to shell out 60 bucks to fill up your car?”

    And in terms of their crown jewel legislative achievement: who knew that when asked, “will government impose a new federal mandate requiring middle class Americans to buy health insurance whether they can afford it or not?”

    The answer would be “Yes we can!”

    So, this time, in the name of 23 million of our children and parents and brothers and sisters who are officially unemployed, underemployed, or who have stopped looking for work, let’s put the poetry aside, let’s suspend the hype, let’s come down to earth and start creating jobs again.

    This time, instead of moving oceans and healing planets, let’s get our bills in order and pay down the debt so we control our own future.

    And of course, we know that opportunity lies outside the reach of some of our people.

    We don’t need flowery words about inequality to tell us that, and we don’t need a party that has led while poverty and hunger rose to record levels to give us lectures about suffering.

    Ladies and gentlemen, there are Americans who are listening to this speech tonight who haven’t always been with you, and I want you to let me talk — just to them – for a moment.

    I know how loaded up our politics is with anger and animosity, but I have to believe we can still make a case over the raised voices.

    There are Americans who voted for the president, but who are searching right now, because they know that their votes didn’t build the country they wanted.

    To those Democrats and independents whose minds are open to argument: listen closely to the Democratic Party that will gather in Charlotte and ask yourself if you ever hear your voice in the clamor.

    Ask yourself if these Democrats still speak for you.

    When they say we have a duty to grow government even when we can’t afford it, does it sound like compassion to you — or recklessness?

    When you hear the party that glorified Occupy Wall Street blast success; when you hear them minimize the genius of the men and women who make jobs out of nothing, is that what you teach your children about work?

    When they tell you America is this unequal place where the powerful trample on the powerless, does that sound like the country your children or your spouse risked their lives for in Iraq or Afghanistan?

    Do you even recognize the America they are talking about? And what can we say about a house that doesn’t honor the pictures on its walls?

    John F. Kennedy asked us what we could do for America. This Democratic Party asks what can government give you. Don’t worry about paying the bill, it’s on your kids and grandkids.

    Bill Clinton took on his base and made welfare a thing you had to work for; this current crowd guts the welfare work requirement in the dead of night.

    Bill Clinton, Jack Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson reached out across the aisle and said meet me in the middle; but their party rammed through a healthcare bill that took over one-sixth of our economy, without accepting a single Republican idea, without winning a single vote in either house from a party whose constituents make up about 50 percent of the country.

    You know, the Democrats used to have a night when they presented a film of their presidential legends: if they do it in Charlotte, the theme song should be this year’s hit, “Somebody That I Used to Know.”

    My fellow Americans, when great athletes falter, their coaches sometimes whisper to them “remember who you are.” It’s a call to their greatness at a moment when their bodies and spirit are too sapped to remember their strength.

    This sweet, blessed, God-inspired place called America is a champion that has absorbed some blows.

    But while we bend, we don’t break.

    This is no dark hour; this is the dawn before we remember who we are.

    May it be said of this time in our history: 2008 to 2011: lesson learned.

    2012: mistake corrected.

    God bless you, God bless America.

    RNC Disenfranchises Paul Delegates; Rigs Rules to Nominate Romney

    Drowning out shouting Ron Paul supporters is not an easy thing to do. Republican delegates voting for Mitt Romney found this out Tuesday as Paul’s contingent chanted “Point of Order” and “Let Him Speak” as they witnessed the re-writing of the GOP rules, clearing the way for the unchallenged coronation of the now-official Republican nominee for president — Mitt Romney.

    The RNC’s rule change effectively disenfranchised Republicans supporting anyone other than the Establishment’s man and left 10 of Maine’s 24 delegates locked out of the process, preventing them from casting votes for Ron Paul.

    Railroaded and rejected, the unseated Maine delegates walked out of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, leaving the convention in the hands of the predetermined winner and his proxies.

    “It’s a disgusting, disgusting display of a hostile takeover from the top down,” said Maine delegate Ashley Ryan, according to an article in the Los Angeles Times. “It’s an embarrassment,” she’s quoted as saying.

    Maine wasn’t alone in expressing its displeasure and disgust at the RNC’s pro-Romney rule manipulation.

    Wayne Terhune, chairman of the Nevada delegation, reported that his state joined at least four others in submitting to the secretary of the convention, Kim Reynolds, valid and timely documents nominating Ron Paul.

    A d v e r t i s e m e n t

    “We are excited to get Dr. Paul nominated,” Terhune said. “Congressman Paul’s message of limited, Constitutional government, sound foreign policy, and personal liberty needs to be heard on this convention floor.”

    Minnesota delegate Gary Heyer confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that his state joined Nevada, Minnesota, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska, and the Virgin Islands in submitting the forms to Reynolds.

    The Los Angeles Times also reported:

    Gary Heyer, a delegate from Minnesota, confirmed that his state was among those submitting papers showing a majority of delegates favoring Paul. Their goal, he said, is simply “to get him into nomination, so everybody here has a choice. If they vote for Romney and he’s democratically elected, then he’s democratically elected. We just want a choice.”

    Disregarding the nominating rule and the Ron Paul delegates’ adherence thereto, when the roll call was read only the votes for Mitt Romney were announced. The nomination of Ron Paul was ignored in open and hostile violation of the RNC’s rules governing the presidential nomination process. No explanation. No chance for appeal. No recourse.

    According to RNC Rule 40(b) in effect until Tuesday’s revisions:

    Each candidate for nomination for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States shall demonstrate the support of a plurality of the delegates from each of five (5) or more states, severally, prior to the presentation of the name of that candidate for nomination.

    Ron Paul unquestionably qualified for nomination under this rule, but he was denied placement on the ballot — and an opportunity to address the convention on behalf of his nomination — in what amounts to a total takeover of the Republican Party by the RNC and Mitt Romney.

    Additional rule changes all but guaranteed that in the future the RNC will not allow itself to be embarrassed by “grassroots” candidates.

    Not only did the RNC rob Ron Paul of delegates he won fairly at the Maine state convention, it prevented any who follow in his footsteps from winning any delegates in the first place.

    According to the revised Rule 16, every state must amend its nominating process to ensure that their delegations are bound to vote in accordance with the winner of the popular vote as cast at state caucuses or primaries.

    Another newly adopted rule — Rule 12 — empowers the RNC to bend the rules to suit their needs at any time without having changes approved at the quadrennial convention. This unprecedented revision places the control of the GOP in the hands of the Establishment candidate without suffering the inconvenience of listening to dissenting voices.

    Prior to the roll call that would formally confirm the nomination of Mitt Romney for president, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus announced the results of the voice vote on the accepting of state delegation credentials as Paul supporters chanted “Seat them now! Seat them now!”

    A Reason magazine blog reports that “boos rained down on the floor,” but the wheels were in motion and nothing would slow their roll toward Romney’s nomination.

    Having successfully rammed the unseating of the Maine delegation down the throats of party members, House Speaker John Boehner than called for a voice vote on the revised RNC rules that will govern the party’s nomination process in 2016.

    Despite what many report as an equal volume of “ayes” and “nays,” the parliamentarian announced the acceptance of the rules. Fait accompli.

    Dailypaul.com reported that the final delegate vote count was 2,061 for Mitt Romney; 190 for Ron Paul; nine for Rick Santorum; one for Buddy Roehmer; one for Jon Hunstman; one for Michele Bachmann; and 18 abstentions.

    At least one delegate from each of the following states voted for Ron Paul: Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. The Virgin Islands cast one vote for Dr. Paul, as well.

    Although the events at the Republican convention were reminiscent of the electoral practices of the Soviet Union, circa 1980, where premiers were routinely re-elected by 99.9 percent of voters, Ron Paul told Fox New’s Neil Cavuto that “we knew what to expect.”

    At his “We are the Future” rally held at the Sun Dome on Sunday, Paul expressed the same opinion of the party’s predetermined presidential nomination.

    “They’ve learned how to bend rules, break rules, and now they want to re-write the rules!” the icon of the liberty movement told the nearly 10,000 devotees gathered to hear him speak.

    Finally, regarding the Romney-Ryan nomination, Ron Paul reaffirmed that he has “not endorsed the ticket,” adding “I endorse the principles I’ve been talking about for a long time.”

    Sadly, in the wake of the RNC’s disregard and dismantling of party rules and disenfranchising of duly elected delegates, there seems to be little room in the Republican Party for Dr. Paul, his principles, or the millions of Americans who cherish them.

    “RNC Disenfranchises Paul Delegates; Rigs Rules to Nominate Romney”

    _____________________________________

    You see the REAL story is already being buried already and replaced with a coverup story about Ron Paul.

    The REAL story is with Sarah Palin as I posted on the Front Page.. The Establishment Repubs are trying to pull a fast one by changing the Rules at the administrative level rather than repeating the Ham-handedness of stealing Hillary Clinton’s electoral votes at the DNC Committee Meeting in 08′ and giving them to Obama.

    Nope- The Prison Plant story is the coverup story- However, If Sarah Palin lives to get the Truth out there it will be a miracle. Palin needs to get the delegates from six states to FIGHT the Rule Changes the Establishment Republicans sneeked into their Party’s platform last night and good reason to be upset about. This is another political power play dragging us towards the United Nations Global authority having the states give up their sovereignty relinquishing the will of the People to the judgement of political FAT CATS.

    Here is a direct quote from the Palin article that says it all:

    “Thompson noted that this rule change would allow large campaign donors to be rewarded with delegate positions, which would be given out like ambassadorships.”

    I think Romney knew about these rule changes and the reason why he was tentative about choosing the Establishment’s darling, Paul Ryan as his VP choice stalling for as long as he could choosing him. Most likely why Sarah Palin hasn’t given her official endorsement to Mitt Romney just yet. She knew this Rule Change was on the table and wanted the freedom to speak up against it..

    For the Truth about what went on last night during the Ron Paul ruckus read the Front page article from Sarah Palin herself.. I Trust Sarah Palin !

    ………………………….

    Ulsterman never fails to nail-it head on.. As time goes on we are starting to like the Romneys. Although we need them to win, we do not like or want interference from the Establishment Republicans usurping the WILL of the People (through policy rule changes) for controlling and dictating to the electorate. It’s all starting to make sense now.. Palin’s reluctant attitude towards a full endorsement of Romney. Romney’s foot dragging for picking a VP candidate most likely preferring Rubio- and told if he expects full support from the Neo-Cons.. he must take Ryan, their horse in this race, as his choice for VP.

    I see what you mean. I am not as knowledgeable of such complex behind-the-scenes tactics and I will take your word for it.

    LOVE Sarah’s new slogan. Obama Must GO. Conveniently abbreviated as O.M.G!

    Damn right it was behind the scenes. The Repubs hate soiling their hands. (in public)They weren’t about to get caught with their pants down like the Dems did when they wrestled Hillary’s electoral votes away from her in full view of the public. Then dealing with the firestorm that ensued afterwards from a public in shock watching the outright Grand Theft of votes from a Democratic candidate from their OWN Party.

    Bush2 was bad enough, but the sainted Democrats?

    To be honest with you, the whole Ron Paul thing was breaking at the same time the Palin article appeared on the Front Page of Brietbart. I had to force myself to keep reading it over and over again to realize what I was reading and what it meant.

    If you mean you take my word for it- well, I appreciate that because I’m banking on Sarah Palin’s word that the Republicans tried pulling off a “coup” just like the Dims did, but did a better job of covering it up with an emotional diversion because they hate being seen getting their hands ‘dirty’ .

    and thanks for posting the Artur Davis vid.. everyone needs to hear it..

    I mean I accept your interpretation of events. I haven’t been following the issue and I am not much good at analyzing it.

    If Sarah Palin has the cojones to expose the Rules change for what it is and what it implies… is a we shall see moment- It is very dangerous to her health to upset the powerful Neo-Cons (notice the reference “going back to the Goldwater days..” in the article) Just remembered, Michelle Malkin should have more details on her site.. she was with Sarah last night when the debacle happened.
