If you are unaware, thusfar, regarding what’s transpired in Clark County, Nevada, here’s the skinny:Ron Paul delegates, once again, TOOK IT HOME.  The State’s GOP has accepted this.  It is, after all, the voice of the people who cared enough to be delegates that voted-in Paul as their nominee. And, Vegas, via or along with the RNC (Reince Priebus) has decided to simply NOT accept this.  The RNC chairman;  Reince Priebus (sp?- who cares?), and did decide to break rule-11, at least in it’s theory.  They may not have specifically broken Rule-11, as such rule(s) apply to the State Offices of GOP, but in its practice, they did.

So, to make it clear to ALL, Clark County (CCRP) has passed a RESOLUTION to Rule-11a, and this is it:

RNC Rule 11(a) Resolution

WHEREAS Republican National Committee (RNC) Rule 11(a) states that “The Republican National Committee shall not, without the prior written and filed approval of all members of the Republican National Committee from the state involved, contribute money or inkind aid to any candidate for any public or party office except the nominee of the Republican Party or a candidate who is unopposed in the Republican primary after the filing deadline for that office…”; and

WHEREAS the clear intent of Rule 11(a) is to ensure a fair, unbiased process for determining which candidates will receive the endorsement and support of the RNC during general elections; and

WHEREAS multiple viable candidates are still actively campaigning for the Republican Nomination for President of the United States; and

WHEREAS the Republican Nominee for President of the United States will not be selected until the Republican National Convention in late August, 2012; and

WHEREAS RNC Chairman Reince Priebus announced on April 25, 2012 that the RNC had selected Willard ‘Mitt’ Romney as the RNC’s “presumptive nominee” and that the RNC would be merging with the Romney campaign; and

WHEREAS the RNC has subsequently begun providing the Romney campaign with significant financial resources and manpower, assisting it with organization and fundraising; and

WHEREAS these acts by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and the RNC Executive Committee constitute multiple flagrant violations of RNC Rule 11(a);

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that:

1. The Clark County Republican Party hereby condemns the actions of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and the RNC Executive Committee, and demands that Mr. Priebus resign as Chairman immediately for his rolein these egregious violations of RNC Rules,

2. The Clark County Republican Party hereby declares that so long as more than one candidate is actively campaigning for the Republican Nomination for President of the United States, the Clark County Republican Party will reject any and all attempts by the RNC or any other organization to pressure or coerce the Clark County Republican Party into supporting or coordinating with any one specific candidate,

3. The Communications Director of the CCRP shall issue the attached national press release pertaining to this matter within 24 hours, and the Secretary of the CCRP shall transmit electronic or written copies of both this resolution and the above referenced press release to the RNC Executive Committee, The Nevada Republican Party Executive Committee, the executive body of each county Republican Party within the State of Nevada, and the entire membership of the Clark County Republican Central Committee within 5 days of acceptance. Additionally, a copy of this resolution and the attached press release shall be displayed prominently on the home page of the ClarkGOP.org website for a minimum of 30 days.

Clark County Republican Party May 15, 2012

Now, what will this mean?  I understand that the Nevade State GOP is attempting to stop this “shadow party” (scum of the earth old-party GOP mainstay(s)) from continuing on, to prevent them from giving ANY sort of assistance to the Romney campaign, which it seems they have already DONE.  I know, in other states, such as Maine, and perhaps Nevada, they have tampered with and/or falsified Delegate Slates, in order to split the Paul votes, so that Romney could and would take a majority of votes. And I do believe that this in-kind collusion with the Romney campaign is also against the gist of Rule-11.   Well, the Paul-ites (or, Ronulans, to quote Doug Wead) were too smart for this one-sided “official” ballot and Paul DID take a great majority of delegates from Nevada, which will be seated in Tampa.  There were, I believe, some Romney delegates that made it to their final slate, but the RNC and some states’ GOP are not satisfied with pluralities of votes;  they want them ALL, so this latest resolution HAD to be done in order to stop them. Where does this guy, Reince Priebus, get off either completely breaking OR changing this rule;  mid-game?  How do these folk in the Republican National Caucus/Convention think they have any right to dismiss ANY delegates, and not just Paul delegates?  This melding of campaign monies with RNC monies (or GOP_Nevada monies,  the other way around) is breaking this specific rule, and it’s simply disgusting.  Yet, these RNC folk call US, “animals”, and say WE are not qualified or credentialed to be seated in our own states and ultimately at the national convention floor,  in Tampa (August).  ** Yes, these are the same folk who actually resorted to physical VIOLENCE when they did not get their way on votes!!  HOW insane ARE THEY?  And, of course:  Who are they ??  How do they think it’s okay for them to silence us and dismiss OUR votes, merely due to the fact that they don’t like the way the votes went?  They did not get their way, after all of the dirty-convention tricks, so this is what they do?

And from my comprhension of the Party’s rules and Election Laws, it’s not just RULES they have now broken, either.  They have now, officially, broken ELECTION LAWS as such laws pertain to campaign funds and contributions.  And they somwhow THINK they are right?  In a word, they are, WRONG.  And, they shall pay for this, too!

“Meanwhile in Nevada and other states, the RNC and/or GOP are working tirelessly and endlessly and repeatedly toward their OWN demise”.

Are they crazy, or. is “the party” SUICIDAL?  They need US more than WE need them, especially now!  Speaking of who needs whom;  the Jesse Benton emails did NOT say all of what’s being reported.  Benton (and Paul) have never stated they would support Romney.  Neither has said the good doctor is out, either, because he is NOT OUT!  Yes, Benton DID say he believed that Romney will be the party’s choice in Tampa, but Ron PAUL said that we ARE taking this to Tampa and HE plans on leading all of his delegates there.  Do these words sound like the words of a man who’s dropped out?  Please, before you all speak regarding these emails;  READ THEM.  And, do not bother with the lying msm (whether paper, tele, or online), okay?  DO NOT pass on their rumors and lies to ANYONE.

And one final thing;  this last moneybomb fell short, and i am sure this has everything to do with the emails from Benton, as well as the false reporting on said emails, via the most ridiculosly LYING (s)Newzz folk in the WORLD/  Please do donate, NOW, to the Paul campaign  As, and I’ve said it before, what price, LIBERTY?  Donate NOW!  As Always;  DO NOT BELIEVE THE MSM AS THEY ARE GETTING MANY OF YOU IN A TIZZY AND have gotten SOME (mamby_pamby) SUPPORTERS TO DROP OUT. DO NOT BE THEM!  CARE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY AND STAND UP WITH RON PAUL!

AND from ONE Paul delegate in Clark County;  the MITT and RNC/GOP of Nevada State Convention: cheating ballot.  THIS IS NOT an “offical ballot”, though they have clearly stated it is!  Yes, this IS one way they CHEAT!!Image

Here is the letter I sent to the Texas GOP and the Travis County GOP (TRP and TCRP), back in April.  I told these people who I was and what my concerns were, and they were SO HAPPY to have me…

They were happy to have me until I told the truth following my work as election judge in one of their precincts.  Now, they not only seem to be regretting the decision to have an HONEST Election Judge who wasn’t going sit idly by and allow vote-fraud to occur, I was going to OPEN MY MOUTH and talk about it.

Since the post of mine regarding what I experienced in Austin, as judge, I have been placed, “Under Criminal investigation”, according to Travis County Clerk (and Elections head), Dana DeBeauvois.  I have been warned, by Ms DeBeauvois, (her words) and was told I am “Not wanted by either the Democrats or the Republicans to serve as Judge” in the upcoming run-off (s)election.  Nice, eh?

I did not portray myself as one person and then turn around to be someone different.  I told the TCRP and the TRP who I was and what I wanted to take part in:  an OPEN AND FAIR ELECTION, yet this is not what I found, at least not in precinct 247, Austin, Travis County, Texas.  Considering what I was told, last week, I am pretty incredulous that they would behave in this manner.  And, I am disgusted.

It is no wonder the Travis County Elections Board are referred to as, “The Bipartisan Mafia”.    Disgusting, in my opinion, the lengths these people will go to in order to silence me (and others, to be sure.)

I decided it’s very important to me, considering what we’ve seen in the (entire) country re:  Voter suppression, Vote-Fraud, and certain coercion from the old-party mainstays, it was well past time I volunteered within the Republican party, in order that I might help to ensure such things will not happen in my neck of the woods.  What follows is what I wrote to the GOP in Texas, recently:

******

I have affiliated myself with the Travis County GOP, this year, because this race is very contentious and I do want to help that everyone’s votes are counted and counted accurately.  I also hope to be a part of the process in order to ensure that caucus/conventions run in accordance to GOP rules, which I have pored over, while awaiting our time to finally VOTE in May.  I find this a very exciting time in our history and am thrilled to be a part of it.
 
Now, since the re-districting, I am not sure if my pct# has changed (I do not yet have a new voting-card, but I do know I am still registered to vote!).  If it has not changed, it seems that out chair position is vacant.  I am not sure if I would have the time required to run for or assume this chair, but know i can make the time to be a delegate.  I’d also be happy to work as volunteer poll-watcher and.or vote-counter, for the GOP.  If you can give me some info on the time-requirement I’d need to commit to, as a chair, I may consider doing this, too.
 
I have a home-based business, and I do work every day, but I can take off the 29th of May, in order to do my part.
I’ve been registered to vote in Austin since 1984, and prior to this, was a registered Texas voter, in Lubbock and in Abilene, since 1976.  I grew up in a very political family;  my dad filled many different seats, on local and state level in Connecticut, and my eldest sister was State Rep from New Haven, CT, on the Republican side.  I’d love to see true conservatism win over Obama’s brand of “hope and change” and really do want to do my part.
 
Please advise as to what I can do in order to work, in either or all positions, for the GOP.

I was a bit worried that I would not be welcomed, but was quite pleased to see that, not only did the Texas Republican Party accept me, they sent me very nice comments, in return.  Here are some of what I received back:
Thank you for your very thoughtful and well-crafted e-mail!  I’m sure we can get you the answers you’re looking for so you can make an informed decision on how to best use your time to help defeat Obama and company.  I’m forwarding this to our headquarters office staff who may be able to tell you more about what goes into being a Precinct Chair, an Election Judge, Poll Watcher, etc. 

From my experience, it doesn’t take more than a few hours per month to be chair of your precinct — though around convention time it may take more than that and up to a whole day on the day of the convention itself. But it has been well worth my effort…

and,
You can definitely attend the county convention on April 21 and get involved in this every exciting election.  Thanks so much for your interest.
Now, given what has been noted in many different areas;  Washington State, Missouri, Georgia, Alaska, for example, I was a bit worried I’d not be “wanted” by the GOP.  It’s kind of funny, as I grew up in a very political, Republican home. Yet, after Reagan’s tenure in the White-house, and given what has happened hence, I actually thought my (honest) intentions would be blocked.  Perhaps it’s my age (Yes, kids; I am 53yrs-old) and/or my length of time as a voter, in Texas, that this was more easy for me?  OR, perhaps not all of the GOP is as terrible as has been suggested.
Either way, I am happy to say, I will be working the polls, and I will be at the convention, as a delegate.
I received a phone call, yesterday, and was offered a specific position that will suit me and my needs, in which I feel I can do the most good, too.  I am thrilled to be back into politics, and just as happy to say I feel those of us with genuine interest in decency and openness within the GOP should  not be timid to sign on and show up!
If we or you don’t do this, WHO will?
As usual, thanks for reading

Or, is he losing?  

Here’s the sole thing one must bear in mind, when it comes to ALL elections, including primaries and caucuses;  until the (district) delegates have met, decided on their leaders/chairs, voted in certain delegates to take it to the state convention and ultimately, to the National Convention in Florida, nobody really knows.  Yes, the Mass Media talking-heads and pundits are using their “math” to show Paul as losing, and kooky/spooky newzz site -yahoo- actually printed a load of tripe stating Paul had DROPPED OUT, the truth is nowhere, yet.  If you have not been following the “delegate count” as put forth by the MSM, you should go back a few months.  If you look, you will see that not only have they added fewer delegates than we KNOW he has garnered the votes from, now they are actually subtracting delegate votes from Ron Paul.  

It reminds me of when one of the Bushes said, “math is hard”.  I think that was “W”, but don’t quote me on that;  look it up and let me know if I am wrong!

Back to the vote, who’s winning and who’s losing;  we, those who are yet to convene or caucus as delegates, need to remember one thing: ALWAYS bring a camera or your phone with you.  Make sure batteries are charged-up and cards are CLEAR. Buy bigger cards, as you may need to video for a long time. Be discreet, so as not to get booted from your meeting, and..? Get the proof.  Get it on video.  If you don’t know what to do with that proof, you can ALWAYS post here– or just send it to me on twitter or other places (I am easily searchable in most any search-engine) and I will get it to the people in the media (not the NEWZZZ– who are there to lull us into this deep slumber), who do actually care enough to research and post what you’ve found.  With what appears to be rampant fraud and wrongdoings in the “Grande Olde Party”, especially this political season, we will need that PROOF.

And, again;  I do have the ear of some who care enough to delve into your proof, investigate it as fraud (or not), and actually will produce real news segments.  So, just do your part and we will all be happier (and this election will be cleaner and more transparent) for it!

Now, get out there!  Regardless of whom it is you would prefer to see as “winner” from the GOP side, or if you’re a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, or even if you are an Indy (like me) and  refuse to vote for either party;  get the proof.  Do something positive for this Democratic Republic.

And, remember; this IS a Republic.  Many of our delegates are unbound, which means they are not forced to vote for any one person, in particular.  Even if your primary or caucus appeared to be for one of the also-rans, unbound delegates are not required to go along with that vote.  In states where delegates ARE “bound”, they are required to go along with whatever the state’s numbers were– in the FIRST round of voting, and at the national level, but only if one of the candidates takes 51 percent of the vote.  If, after a first vote does not yield 51 percent for anyone, in particular, ALL delegates are then unbound, and they can vote for whomever they choose.  I hope this will mean Ron Paul stands a much larger chance for a win, and that could be the case.  But, it would also make it easier for NewtSantoRomney to garner that 51-percent, too.  It is why I have also said, as I have seen it;  Ron Paul’s supporters are not content to rely on the usual delegates;  we BECOME DELEGATES.

GO out there, get your vote on, and always?  Get the PROOF we may (will, most likely) need.  Thanks for all you do!
