    RNC Makes Historical Changes To Snub Ron Paul in Tampa

    As many here know, Ron Paul is having a Pre-RNC Event, Sunday, August 26TH. The RNC seized this as an opportunity to "make historical changes", which will affectively eliminate Ron Paul and his delegates. Their message is: "You are with us, including YOU Ron Paul, or you're against us."

    (CBS News) Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, who has conceded that he will not win enough delegates to garner the Republican nomination but has not dropped out of the race, will hold his own event on August 26 in Tampa, the day before the Republican National Convention begins.
    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57456353-503544/ron-p...

    From the 2012 Tampa bay Host Committee:

    It has finally arrived: The 2012 Republican National Convention.

    In fact, in less than 26 days, the Host Committee’s Welcome Event will take place on Sunday, August 26, 2012 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.

    This marquis event will kick-off the week
    of the Convention like never before. This is an inaugural event which will be the first of its kind in the history of a presidential nominating convention.

    Traditionally, delegates and members of
    the media have been welcomed separately during two or more host committee events; however, these events will be combined into one monumental occasion that will showcase all of Tampa Bay,
    including Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater.

    How the Republican Party Stole the Nomination from Ron Paul

    Jul 31 2012
    19 Comments


    Paul supporters gathered outside the Republican debate at USF in Tampa, Florida.

    If you follow mainstream election coverage, you might think Mitt Romney has coasted to an honest, easy, well-deserved Republican nomination.

    Unfortunately for Republican voters, nothing could be further from the truth. The primary process has been an all-out slugfest and many of the delegates Romney has won may be the result of dirty tricks and even election fraud. The following narrative includes links to reports, first-hand testimonials, and video evidence highlighting actions taken by the GOP to ensure a Romney victory, at the expense of fracturing the party just prior to the general election. Party leaders at the county and state level have changed or violated party rules, cancelled caucuses, changed vote counts, thrown out entire counties of votes, counted public votes privately, called-in the SWAT team, and inexplicably replaced Paul delegates with Romney delegates to block Ron Paul from winning the nomination.
    Iowa: Days before the caucuses, Paul held a commanding lead in the polls and all the momentum, with every other candidate having peaked from favorable media coverage and then collapsed under the ensuing scrutiny. Establishment Republicans, like Iowa’s Representative Steve King (R), attempted to sabotage Paul’s campaign by spreading rumors he would lose to Obama if nominated. Even though the Iowa GOP platform reads like a Ron Paul speech, shortly before the caucuses, Iowa Governor Terry Barnstad told Politico , “[If Paul wins] people are going to look at who comes in second and who comes in third. If Romney comes in a strong second, it definitely helps him going into New Hampshire”. The message from the Governor to voters of his state was: a vote for Ron Paul was a wasted vote.

    Huffington Post reported that Paul was ahead by one point over Romney and Rick Santorum in entrance polls conducted by Edison Media Research for the AP before the caucuses. For the first time ever, the Iowa GOP changed the final vote count to a secret location . After the caucus, results from 8 precincts (including those with colleges, in a state where Paul won 48% of the youth vote) went missing. Interestingly, these were all precincts Romney lost in 2008. In addition, GOP officials discovered inaccuracies in 131 precincts. Though polling in a comfortable first place, Paul finished third in this non-binding straw poll, behind Romney and Santorum.

    Iowa originally reported Romney in first, Santorum in a close second, and Paul third. After the recount, Santorum was named the winner with Romney in second. No mention was given to how the recount affected Paul’s vote count. Iowa GOP chairman, Matt Strawn, later resigned and was replaced by Paul supporter, A.J. Spiker and Paul went on to win the majority of delegates.

    Florida: The Florida GOP broke party rules by switching to a winner-take-all state before the date allowed, which favors the candidate with the most money for advertising and attack ads. Senior Advisor to the Ron Paul campaign, Doug Wead, claims this was done specifically to favor Romney.

    Nevada: There is bad blood between Paul’s supporters and establishment Republicans in Nevada. This dates back to 2008, when Convention Chair, Sue Lowden and her enlisted delegates got up and walked out of the convention when it became apparent Paul’s supporters would claim a majority of the delegates. She claimed she would reconvene at a later time, but instead approved the McCain slate of delegates.

    This year, Paul supporters expected shenanigans; so his State Chairman, Carl Bunce, planned to win by outworking Romney. Just before the caucuses, he claimed to have “more IDs than Romney had votes in ’08″. This means through canvassing door-to-door and phoning voters, he had identified about 25,000 voters committed to show up and vote for Paul.

    On caucus day, the media was denied access to most caucus sites and the few that were permitted were not allowed to take photos. Others were even ejected from sites. This CNN clip shows GOP staff preventing a Paul supporter from entering the premises to vote at a special caucus that was set up at the last minute for Newt Gingrich backer, Sheldon Adelson. Here, participants were asked to sign an affidavit (under penalty of perjury) stating they were Jewish and couldn’t vote earlier in the day due to “religious reasons”. CNN showed live coverage of votes being counted at this event, with Paul amassing nearly 60% of the votes. In some precincts in Clark County, the largest in Nevada, the number of ballots did not match the number of voters signed in at the caucus. Though votes were to be counted publicly, they were largely counted in private. The vote count was also inexplicably dragged out for several days, leading to a victory for Romney. Nevada State GOP Chairwoman, Amy Tarkanian resigned the day after the caucuses.

    Another interesting note is that Paul’s 2012 votes had doubled, tripled, and more than quadrupled his 2008 votes in every state leading up to the Nevada caucuses, yet Paul received only 88 more votes there. Of all the places for this to occur, Nevada, the country’s most libertarian state; is the last in which anyone would expect this.

    In spite of these irregularities , Paul won 22 of 25 state delegates and replaced state party officials with Paul supporters. Romney supporters then formed their own state party, called “Team Nevada”. The RNC then bypassed the official state party in order to organize for Romney and send all funds to Team Nevada.

    Colorado: Romney supporters were caught passing out fake Ron Paul slates at the state convention. The RNC has not investigated or even commented on the matter.

    Minnesota: Doug Wead, claims the state party instructed members not to vote for any delegates under age fifty because most young delegates support Paul.

    Missouri: WXIX Cincinnati’s Ben Swann covered the fiasco in Clay County, Missouri’s largest county.

    Temporary Chairman, Eugene Dokes, started the meeting by banning video recording devices, a first for this event. Robert’s Rules of Order require the temporary chairman to accept nominations and elect a convention chairman to run the event.

    Instead, he appointed a chair of his choice. The crowd immediately erupted with booing. Shortly after, Dokes adjourned the meeting without the required two-thirds majority, called the police on attendees, and left. In adherence to state rules, Paul supporter, Brent Stafford, along with one of the top parliamentarians in the state, reconvened in the parking lot and attempted to resume the event.

    Shortly after, the SWAT team arrived and arrested Stafford, who was following state party rules. Dokes later admitted on talk radio that he and other state party officials deliberately broke the rules to prevent Paul from winning.

    Maine: Ben Swann reported on shenanigans in Maine . Even though only 84% of votes had been counted; State GOP Chairman, Charlie Webster, declared Romney the winner over Paul by less than 200 votes. Hancock and Washington Counties hadn’t voted yet because Webster cancelled the caucuses due to an impending snowstorm, promising they could vote later and their votes would be counted. The snowstorm never occurred and he later reneged on his promise, telling voters in those counties their votes would not be counted after all. Washington County was Paul’s strongest in the state in 2008. Though other states with close outcomes held recounts, this was never a consideration for Maine.

    At least one of the counties that did vote claims the state party recorded its tallies incorrectly. Matt McDonald, pastor of a small community church in Belfast, was nominated as the chairman of his caucus. He says the state instructed the caucus chairmen not to read any of the vote totals aloud, but rather to send the results straight to Augusta without a public reading. McDonald made a motion to change this rule, and it was approved unanimously. McDonald says 22 voters showed up, resulting in 8 votes for Paul, 7 for Santorum, 5 for Romney, and 2 undecided. When he called the votes into Augusta, he was told they already had the results and the totals read 9 for Romney, 5 or Santorum, and 2 for Paul.

    When McDonald told her the tally had been counted publicly, he says “her voice changed and she said…we’ll record this”. Doug Wead claims, “On every occasion, the votes that were lost were Ron Paul votes and the person responsible for reporting them were Mitt Romney supporters…

    in one case the votes were actually transferred from paper to…a computer and the lady doing the transfer was a Mitt Romney person”. To date, these tallies have not been corrected and Romney is still credited with the straw vote win while the media continues to report that Paul never won a state contest.

    Arizona: The Examiner’s Kevin Kervick reports “ballot stuffing, rule violations, and improper vote counting that occurred behind closed doors” at the convention. In addition, Paul supporters allege threats of physical violence from Romney supporters.

    Michigan: Doug Wead reports, ” Michigan, unlike any other state…had a special party rule forbidding any precinct delegate vacancies from being filled at county conventions until after the state delegates and alternates were chosen. In other words, countless Ron Paul supporters attending county convention were forcibly blocked…because they weren’t elected precinct delegates in 2010-long before the Ron Paul 2012 campaign began”. Wead also claims “documented instances in multiple counties where county party officials “edited” the state delegation lists after the county conventions adjourned”.

    Wyoming: A commenter on Paul supporter website, DailyPaul.com, explains how members of the Republican Executive Committee (all Romney supporters) illegally cast votes in the delegate selection vote.

    Washington: At the state convention , a Ron Paul delegate claimed bubble ballot sheets were withheld in King County’s district 36. He also claims the 37 th district caucus was forced to conduct the meeting outside because Chairwoman, Lori Sotelo, was irritated when a Ron Paul supporter was elected to run the caucus, instead of her choice.

    Ben Swann interviewed a voter in Pierce County, Washington; who claims the local Republican leadership passed out what they called a “unity slate” to voters and said it represented an equal distribution of delegates committed to Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich. The plan was to organize to block Ron Paul supporters, who outnumbered the other candidates’ supporters, from receiving the lion’s share of the delegates. The Republican leadership prevailed.

    Alaska: In spite of last-minute rule changes and violations of party rules, Paul supporters ousted longtime state chairman, Randy Ruedrich, and voted-in Paul supporter, Russ Millette. Ruedrich then tried to sabotage the state convention and transferred all of the state party’s $100,000 to the local Capital City Republicans in Juneau, effectively bankrupting the party now controlled by Paul supporters.

    Georgia: This video shows GOP Chairwoman, Sue Everhart, at the Athens Clarke County GOP meeting admitting “shoddy treatment of the Ron Paul people at that [2008] convention” and publicly apologizing. She presents the rule book that she helped to write and claims it won’t happen again. The video then shows the actual convention and party leaders breaking those rules to force their pre-selected slate of delegates and prevent Paul’s supporters from electing their own. Party leaders then adjourned the meeting illegally and ran out of the meeting.
    Massachusetts: Paul won 16 of the 27 delegates selected so far in Romney’s home state.

    In addition, he swept all 6 from Romney’s home county. As a result (for the first time ever in the state), delegates were asked to sign an affidavit stating ” I certify under the pain and penalty of perjury, that on the first ballot at the 2012 Republican National Convention, I will affirmatively Vote for Mitt Romney, the winner of the 2012 Massachusetts Presidential Primary.” The state GOP then covered up Romney’s embarrassing loss by invalidating ballots and ousting the Paul delegates.

    North Dakota: Ben Swann reports the selection of delegates was unfair: the GOP handed out pre-printed ballots with a slate of delegates with 60% of them being Mitt Romney supporters in a state where he won only 26% of the vote.

    Oklahoma: Kevin Kervick of The Examiner reports that the Oklahoma convention had to be moved to the parking lot because Robert’s Rules were ignored, delegate credentials were not verified, a convention chair was never appointed, motions made from the floor were ignored, the Chairman illegally elected a slate of Romney delegates, and the convention was closed without a two-thirds majority vote. Consistent with Robert’s Rules, Paul supporters reconvened in the parking lot to elect delegates. Paul supporters have now filed a law suit to ensure their delegates will be seated.

    Virginia: Doug Wead claims “at a district convention, they coaxed the Ron Paul delegation outside and then locked the door. The pastor of the church that was hosting the event was, himself, locked out”.

    U.S. Virgin Islands: Ron Paul won his first caucus, only to have the GOP take down the straw vote results from their website showing Paul the victor with 29% over Romney’s 26% and replaced with a note from the party claiming Romney won because he won more delegates. Paul’s Official Campaign Blogger, Jack Hunter, explains how every other contest determined the victor by the straw vote, except the one straw vote Paul won.

    Alabama: An inexplicable gap exists between Paul’s popular vote count and his delegate vote count. This is odd because voters choose both on the same day and on the same ballot. Alabama Republican Party rules state that voters can only vote for one candidate and then must choose between his delegates. Statewide, Paul received only about one-third as many votes as his delegates. This means voters chose another candidate, but selected Paul’s delegates. No other candidate’s totals showed a similar pattern.

    Louisiana: Ben Swann reports a clash between the old Louisiana State GOP leadership and newly-elected leaders who support Paul. Old Chairman, Roger Villere, angered attendees with last-minute rule changes the night before the convention.

    At the start of the convention, Villere attempted to recognize the former Chair of the Rules Committee, who had been voted out the night before. When new Chair, Alex Helwig, rose to address the delegation; Villere instructed security (comprised of off-duty Shreveport Police) to remove him .

    They arrested him for trespassing and broke several of his fingers. Next, an overwhelming majority elected a new Convention Chair, Paul supporter Alex Helwig. Members then turned their chairs to face Helwig, with their backs to Villere. In desperation, Villere instructed the police officers to remove the duly-elected Herford.

    They did so and dislocated his hip in the process, sending him to the emergency room. The reconvened group followed state party rules and went on to elect a majority of Paul delegates, which the state party later replaced with its own slate of Romney delegates. The Paul campaign has appealed to the RNC, but it is unlikely that the RNC will reinstate the Paul delegates.

    Oregon: This YouTube video shows establishment Republicans in Congressional District 4 attempting to steal the ballot box and leave the premises when it became apparent the Ron Paul supporters were in the majority. A Paul supporter is chased away from the ballots and claims he was accosted by an establishment party member.

    Wisconsin: MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell reports Romney violated state campaign laws by bribing voters with free subs.

    In other states, Paul supporters claim vote-flipping occurred with electronic voting machines. Once about 40% of votes are reported, there is typically little variation in the final numbers. However on several occasions, at about 40% Romney’s trajectory “flipped” with the leader, which was often Paul.

    Austin Election Judge, Anne Beckett, has come forth publicly to claim she witnessed this firsthand.

    Baseless allegations or a few isolated incidents may not be cause for concern, but there is enough video evidence in this report to disturb anyone who cares about fair elections. Rule changes, disregard for existing rules, cancelling elections, running off with ballots, secret vote counts, throwing out votes, threats, physical violence, and arbitrary replacement of delegates are activities unbecoming of a democratic society. Whether you’re a Ron Paul supporter, or even a Republican, is irrelevant. That the Republican Party will seemingly stop at nothing to ensure their selected candidate is the nominee should be deeply troubling for all Americans.

    Gun control losing support in U.S. despite mass shootings

    Enjoy the read DP, I heard guns sales have gun up so damn much the industry is having difficulty with supply and demand ratio, Deep down people know there's something wrong with our government, no one I know trusts them, and everyone has eachothers back for this, It's like what Ice-T said, "It's not gonna change",

    The United States is based on guns,

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2012/07/23/gun-control-po...

    Logistically all I say to the government is good luck champ, because there's no guarantee your campaign will successfully take the guns from the people. your own military has fast declining loyalty towards you, let alone the people, because all of them will be itching for revenge for the illegal crimes your doing to them, no microwave riot weapons, private banker armies who fight because their paid, or drones will win, its foolish to think that if a war happens here, its not even civil really, because this government is foreign, it's foolish to think that we would only have rifles as weapons, it would lead to way more access to heavier weaponry, do not think for once it wouldn't be hard for our own military so supply us. Oh and for those of us who have disdain or frustration towards so called sheep, sometimes in a blink of an eye people wake up and see things for what they are, I recently witnessed this and Im telling you don't give up hope, for some ppl it takes different buttons to push

    Enjoy your day Daily Paulers

    Romney and Obama have been globe trotting in attempts to get financial support for their campaigns from foreign nationals.

    England....France....Germany.....Israel....Poland. ....this list goes on and on.

    And while Obama has met with some small success....Romney has managed to be an utter failure at it. So what is keeping both men from being international " super stars " while on their world tours?

    Ron Paul.

    The people of the world LOVE Ron Paul. Everywhere that Obama and Romney have gone in Europe and the middle east, they have met a sea of Ron Paul supporters waiving signs and banners. Obama and Romney have taken virtually no questions from the press and have held virtually no photo-ops out in the public that were tightly controlled and limited to just a handful of people in attendance.

    This has been because the question the press corps of these countries want to ask the most is...

    " Why is Ron Paul not the President of America? "

    Fox News interviewed a group in attendance at the Romney fundraiser in Poland and one of the men there who could speak English the most fluently spelled out in no uncertain terms that they were there to show support for Ron Paul and that most of Poland believed that Romney and Obama were not offering anything different and that both men were Socialists in their policies and many in Poland would consider Obama to be borderline Communist.

    And the man is right. Our government refuses to accept Ron Paul's message because it goes against everything the U.S. government has spent 100 years trying to accomplish here. Which is circumvent the Constitution and turn America into a Socialist country with an eventual eye towards outright Communism.

    We spent 100+ years sending our troops around the world to stop the spread of the evil " isms " where ever we could. Marxism, Socialism, Fascism, Communism, Totalitarianism. Our troops fought and died to limit the hold any of these " isms " had over other countries.

    By the late 60's - early 70's , the evil " isms " were...for the most part, under control and confined to only a handful of countries. People around the world were finally getting their chance to be capitalist style countries with free markets and open trade with the other countries.

    However, here in America....our own government was adopting Socialist ideals and policies.

    Domestic Spying
    Government Controlled Industry
    Central Banking
    Indefinite Detention of Citizens
    Gun Control
    Government Mandated Welfare
    Collectivism ( Unions )

    Those massive rumblings in the ground felt all around America and Europe these last 30 years? Scientists attribute them to Earthquake Activity. The Shifting of Tectonic Plates.

    You want to know what's really causing them?

    The bodies of 10 million + soldiers who have been killed in action all over the world fighting against the evil " isms " are rolling in their graves at what is now happening. They died to keep their countries free of the evil " isms " and then their countries pissed on their graves and instituted those very same policies anyways.

    And America has been the worst offender.

    We need to make sure Ron Paul gets the nomination in Tampa and goes on to defeat Obama in November.

    The rest of the world is right to laugh at us and question what we are doing over here. We preach to the rest of the world about being exceptional and then we outlaw everything that made us exceptional in the first place.

    It's gotta stop.

    The rest of the world is laughing at us and asking: " Why are you not electing Ron Paul? " | Peace . Gold . Liberty | Revolution

    Oklahoma Challenge - 8/1/2012 Update

    Submitted by Steve Dickson on Wed, 08/01/2012 - 16:25

    On Thursday, July 26th, 2012, a group of concerned Delegates and Alternates representing the Precinct, County, District, State and National levels filed a Challenge with the Committee on Contests. At this time, we have chosen not to publicize the details, nor are we seeking press, aside from informing interested parties here on the Daily Paul. Today we are filing the Statement of Position, which is basically a legal brief with supporting evidence. We were given this deadline Monday night, so time has been short.
    Any help that can be provided to offset our significant legal bills would be greatly appreciated. Donations can be made to our chip-in on our website www.okliberty.com. We have raised about $1500 due to the generous Liberty community, but that has gone fast - I spent $590 on registered letters, for example. We need to raise quite a bit more (several thousand will make a dent).

    Thank you for your continued support and well wishes. We believe we have a very strong challenge, and I promise at some point in the very near future to release lots and lots of details. It's not quite time for that yet, but it's fast approaching.

    In Liberty,
    Steve

    NeoCon National Review's Kevin D. Williamson: ATF and DEA; "both should be dissolved," Now!

    DEA Gone Wild
    By Kevin D. Williamson
    July 30, 2012 3:39 P.M.


    This Houston Chronicle story is terrifying: Truck owner wants DEA to pay up after botched sting

    ...In short, the DEA here commandeered private property from a law-abiding businessman and ineptly deployed it in an operation that got a man killed and now endangers a family that had nothing to do with the case. There is a term for what the DEA did with that truck: grand theft auto.

    The DEA is running neck-and-neck with the ATF for the title of most dangerous federal law-enforcement agency; in my view, both should be dissolved and their responsibilities handed over to some more responsible party, such as a group of drunken rodeo clowns or ADD-addled teen-agers.

    Whoever approved this operation belongs in a jail cell next to whoever approved Fast and Furious.
