    Ron Paul Has A 99.6% Chance of Getting A 5th State!

    Nebraska

    Okay guys, so earlier tonight I did some research and number crunching. According to TheReal2012DelegateCount, there are seven states that have not released a number for delegates (Indiana, Pennsylvania, Texas, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, and of course Nebraska).

    There are 2 states conventions that I did not include, but if they were included it would only increases the odds.

    After finding out how many possible ways Paul could win at least one of these states (127), I divided it by the maximum number of possibilities.

    This number is of course 128 since there is only one possible way Paul doesn't win any state. Anyway, the calculations gave me a percentage of over 99.2%, and like I said, adding the Idaho and Oregon conventions would just make the odds higher. I just added in those 2 conventions and the odds rose to over 99.6%!

    The corrupt GOP can't fight these odds!

    If all else fails, we still have the Oklahoma Parking Lot slate (thanks Suriyahfish!) that SHOULD be chosen. After all, they played by the rules the entire way.

    All in all, Nebraska is NOT do or die and it is NOT our last hope! We still have other chances to get plurality in states, and even after that, there is Rule 38.

    Keep on fighting delegates! We Paulites are all behind you!
    PS If the math seems hard to believe, you can double check my work. Find the odds of Paul winning at leat 1 state when 9 states are up for grabs.

    You can calculate this with combinations. On a scientific calculator it is easiest. I used my TI-83 PLUS and entered in 9 nCr 1, 9 nCr 2, and so on. If you can figure out how to do combinations on a calculator you can see for yourself!

    The Things We Know, Yet Refuse to Admit: Our Presidents Are Hand-Picked Puppets (Eerily Similar 1964 Book)

    We’ve all thought about it. We’ve all referenced it. And the evidence is overwhelming. All U.S. Presidents are manipulated marionettes tied to strangling strings of secret societies and egregious elitist kingmakers.

    Groomed and bloomed, our Presidents are either grown or hand-picked early in their careers. Mountains are moved, seas are parted, and skies are cleared by the kingmakers for their anointed candidates. The think tanks start thinking, the media dis-information machines start manipulating, muscle men start muscling, and useful idiots get used, all to keep the gravy train going the wrong direction down the track to nowhere.

    The primary season of 2012 has all but anointed former Massachusetts Governor, Mitt Romney as the nominee for the Republican Party ticket to challenge President Obama. This would be a good time to note that the kingmakers will always try to anoint the most controllable candidate on both sides of the isle and then convince the masses that the strongest, most obvious candidates are “unelectable”. They don’t really care who wins, as long as both candidates will progress their gravy train domestic agenda and foreign policy of dollars or doom for dictators so that the banking elite can facilitate all those transactions worth TRILLIONS.

    The kingmakers’ well greased machines then start pounding the pavement, airwaves, and blog-o-spheres with phrases like, “I like Ron Paul, but he can’t win.” Or, “We must unite around Mitt Romney to beat Obama.” Or, “Mitt Romney has the best chance to beat Obama.” Or my personal favorite, “Mitt Romney saved the Olympics.”

    This essay is aimed at all Republican National Delegates that will listen and have the courage to join forces in objecting to the current plot to anoint Mitt Romney as our party’s nominee by the same execrable interests that control the Democrats and virtually all aspects of our political and economic system. You are being told we have to unite to beat President Obama, but the person we’re supposed to unite behind cannot win. Mitt Romney, like previously anointed John McCain, cannot and will not beat President Barack Hussein Obama. Please, for the love of all that is good in this world, consider forming a coalition to restore our Republican Party back to its roots of limited government and liberty for all by nominating a true Constitutional Republican at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL this August 27th thru the 30th.

    President Obama was just served a political victory by George W. Bush’s appointee, Chief Justice John Roberts, when he, at the behest of the kingmakers, changed his vote to tip the scales in the recent Supreme Court 5-4 ruling upholding The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), regularly referred to as Obamacare.

    This alone should convince you that our Republican Party is controlled by the kingmakers since one of our own flipped on this blatant attack on our health freedom. Our orders are to lob up a soft pitch to President Obama (similar to the one he threw) by nominating Mitt Romney. Many have forgotten that we are a Republic, and National Conventions used to actually pick presidents, not echo orders from secret, smoky chambers.

    At the recommendation of a friend, I started reading a book the other night and ended up reading it cover to cover. Now I encourage you to do the same! It’s a short book, by Phyllis Schlafly titled, A Choice, Not An Echo, ‘The Inside Story of How American Presidents Are Chosen’.

    The book is “a clear, concise statement of the issues of the 1964 presidential campaign, including the hidden issues within the Republican Party. It gives a fascinating inside account of Republican National Conventions since 1936. It is full of authentic details never before assembled.

    It answers such questions as:

    Who really picks our presidential candidates?
    How are political conventions stolen?
    Who are the secret kingmakers?
    How do "hidden persuaders" and propaganda gimmicks influence politics?
    Will the Republicans win in 1964?

    "A CHOICE NOT AN ECHO made a major contribution to the victory of Senator Goldwater at the Republican Convention in San Francisco. If read by enough people, I am confident it will help elect him to the Presidency and thus preserve our heritage of freedom and decency in human relationships...It is absolutely the finest collection of evidence I have seen." - General A. C. Wedemeyer, U. S. Army (Ret.)
    "The distribution of a half-million copies of A CHOICE NOT AN ECHO in California prior to the June 2 primary was a major factor in bringing victory to Barry Goldwater against the terrific assault of the press, the pollsters, and the paid political workers of the opposition." - Gardiner Johnson, RNC from CA
    "Mrs. Schlafly gave us a tool when we needed it most. It was a magic wand that really converted people to Barry Goldwater." — Mrs. Edgar Eisenhower
    Do the following paragraphs remind you of some people?!
    "Meanwhile the kingmakers engaged in a frantic search to dig up anybody — just anybody — to prevent Republicans from selecting their obvious candidate.

    About once a month, some spokesman for the kingmakers sent up a trial balloon to test public reaction to a new candidate. In 1963 a trial balloon was sent up for General Lauris Norstad. He is very handsome and has a fine head of hair which, while Kennedy was President, seemed to be important qualifications.

    Next came a boomlet for George Romney,Governor of Michigan. Like Rockefeller, and unlike Goldwater or Lyndon Johnson, Romney is handicapped by the absence of World War II military service. Even after he was dropped by the kingmakers, Romney was faithful to their wishes. On June 7, he violated his long standing rule against politicking on Sunday to announce:"I will do everything within my power to prevent him (Goldwater) from becoming the party's presidential choice."
    And now Mitt Romney is following in his father's footsteps to again attempt to smother the Liberty candidate. Wow! Coincidence?!

    And here's a shot out to all you hard working activists!
    "The kingmakers realized the crucial nature of the California primary on June 2 and threw their vast financial and propaganda apparatus behind Nelson Rockefeller. The San Francisco and Los Angeles newspapers, LOOK, NEWS-WEEK, TIME and LIFE magazines, the columnists and commentators, the pollsters, etc., all attacked Goldwater in every conceivable manner. Goldwater's victory proved that even a fortune in paid workers and hidden persuaders could not match the tens of thousands of dedicated volunteer grassroots workers who didn't stop until the ballots were counted."
    I find the parallels between the events described in this book and the 2012 Republican Primary too similar to be a coincidence.

    We must join together to defeat the kingmakers' plot to anoint Mitt Romney. Will we really settle for a race between the only President in history to pass a healthcare mandate versus the only Governor in history to implement a healthcare mandate? Both support employer-based insurance. Romney also supports an expansion of Medicaid. Both support Too Big To Fail bailouts. Both support the Dept of Energy and Education. Both support the Federal Reserve destroying our currency. Both are foreign interventionists.

    I'll concede that Romney is slightly better than Obama. But seriously, would you prefer death by lethal injection or death by drowning? And what happens if Vice-President Biden mysteriously gets sick and resigns to make room for Hillary on the ticket? Then what?

    "It is an absolute fact that no matter which of the two major parties in Washington, D.C., is in power, the freedoms and liberties of the American people continue to be eroded.

    However, this does NOT mean that there are not basic differences between the two parties.

    The two parties differ greatly on HOW government will take our liberties.

    Where they are similar is in the fact that neither of them has any interest in preserving liberty.

    Until the American people awaken to this reality, whatever freedoms we have left in this country are doomed..........."

    Isn't it strange to think that we're funding our own loss of freedoms?

    I mean at the end of the day, we're the ones paying the politicians' salary... Sure, the Fed can just print the money out of thin air to finance our massive government, but our tax money helps slow down their inflation and keeps the system going for longer... Just a thought.

    Anyway, back to work so I can fund my government!

    Congress Now Trying To Outlaw Reporting On Government Corruption

    Submitted by richybear on Fri, 07/13/2012 - 23:50
    Politics & Law

    This week, House Republicans sought legal advice on whether reporters can be prosecuted for leaking secret information public and the excuse being used in a series of leaks by officials in the Obama administration that have pissed of the republicans.

    The latest of those high-profile leaks revealed the truth nature of America’s cyber warfare program and even President Obama’s secret assassination list.

    Now Congress is trying to justify the outlawing of such reporting using the excuse of “comprising National Security” when the truth is the information was given to reporters in repeated interviews by government officials speaking on the condition of anonymity with the approval of the White House in the first place.

    Once again our government is manufacturing yet another “crisis” that they can take advantage of to expand its evermore dictatorial powers in what has been nothing less than a full-scale ware being waged by out government against the US Constitution.

    Massachusetts State Election Fraud Lawsuit To Be Filed; Injunction Requested to Prevent Seating of Romney Appointed Delegates

    by Matt Robinson | Volunteer MA State Director, Ron Paul 2012
    July 7, 2012

    If you haven't heard, the MA Republican party has recently decided to deny certification to around 17 delegates / alternates over some unprecedented technicalities. Many of these are liberty supporters that you may have helped elect at the MA district caucuses on April 28th.

    You can find the full story and always get the latest update on the situation by going to this special site that has been set up to follow the liberty delegates from Massachusetts: www.MALibertyCaucus.com

    Due to the results of the state primary, all the delegates were bound to Romney on the first ballot of the National Convention, but the Liberty delegates still wanted to go in order influence the party and spread the message of liberty. The party rules do state that after being elected at the caucuses, the delegates have to be certified by the candidate who they are bound to, but it also says that the candidate must have "just cause" to throw them out, and the decision must be upheld by the Allocation Committee.

    The state party used this vague rule to setup arbitrary and unprecedented requirements of the delegates, including a poorly worded affidavit that everyone was required to sign. The affidavit required the delegates to swear under penalty of perjury, that they would indeed vote for Mitt Romney on the first ballot of the convention. However, at the caucuses the delegates had already publically agreed to uphold state law and vote for Mitt Romney on the first ballot at the national convention.

    Yet the state party still took the unprecedented step of requiring the signed affidavits, and gave very little time for the delegates to review the document and return it by their arbitrary deadline. In addition, the affidavit contained several material defects. Many delegates tried to still comply with the demand by returning a slightly edited version which tried to correct the the errors and make the affidavit clearer.

    However, even though the affidavit was an arbitrary hurdle, never used before, and not in the rules, the state party refused to accept anything but their poorly worded version, by their short deadline.

    Even Michael Graham, who in the past I've heard strongly criticizing Ron Paul and his supporters, agrees that the MA GOP has been using some dirty tricks:
    Boston Herald: Mass. GOP Deals Dirty

    Ben Swann also does a great job exposing the corruption: Reality Check: Mass. Corruption as GOP Strip Delegates of Their Credentials


    This seems to be a clear message from leadership within the Romney campaign and the Massachusetts Republican establishment that they do not want or care about your vote in November, or your presence in the party. So we need your help to send them a message.

    How you can help:
    The Republican establishment, and the Romney campaign need to hear from us. Here's 3 actions you can take.
    1) Sign the petition to restore the duly elected delegates and count the provisional ballots:
    http://www.change.org/petitions/the-u-s-senate-restore-the-d...


    2) Contact leadership of State Party and Romney Campaign. Just go here where you can find email addresses to contact the following individuals:

    The MA GOP Chairman - Bob Maginn
    The National Committeeman from MA - Ron Kaufman
    The Chair of the Allocation Committee - Ed McGrath
    The head of the Romney Campaign in MA - Brad Jones


    3) Contact you members of the MA GOP state committee. Go here where you can find their info.

    Let them know that you disapprove of how the party has refused to certify so many duly elected delegates over minor technicalities that are not in the rules. As well as refusing to count the provisional ballots. You can get more info here: How YOU can help! | Massachusetts Liberty Caucus

    The ONLY way that these Republican Party leaders will realize that they need to move towards Liberty is if YOU let them know. Otherwise, they will pretend it is business as usual, and ignore the activists that are promoting Liberty principles.

    This fight will continue, and the duly elected delegates that have been thrown out will go all the way to the convention in Tampa in order to formally appeal being de-certified.

    In addition, a letter has been sent to the MassGOP telling them that there is a state lawsuit being filed for election fraud and asking for an injunction from seating the delegates.

    Still, these liberty delegates could definitely use your help to apply pressure to the right people. Some in the leadership of the MassGOP already support us, so please remember that and be careful to not offend allies. For those that may oppose us, or are neutral, those are people we want to win over. It is good to be direct and adamant about your position, and explain that their actions are alienating potential supporters and causing them to loose credibility, but name calling and rudeness will not help the cause.

    In liberty,

    U.S. News & Weekly Report: Romney Out of Presidential Contest

    Submitted by chris cudnoski on Sat, 07/14/2012 - 06:23
    Current Events

    U.S. News and Weekly Report
    U.S. Corporation Internal Newsletter
    (for company-wide distribution)

    W. Romney Out as Candidate for President

    Poor Long-term planning skills among reasons

    If you've been following the adventures at corporate you know the company has been pursuing a new president for a while now.

    After months of talks potential prez Willard Romney was notified that he was out of the running to fill the big chair at corporate HQ in Washington.

    As you remember Willard, or Mitt as he likes to be called, had been president of his own venture capital firm, Bain Capital, for many years, as well as the state of Massachusetts. He also headed the Olympics in Salt Lake City.

    "Mr. Romney's previous experience was definitely a plus, he absolutely does possess many of the qualities we look for when choosing a president or any other position at U.S. Inc.," said Bud Flipper, Liaison for Central States, Unfortunately, the topic of a recent spate of interviews on the business news networks hastened the decision."

    The interviews of July 13 focused on whether or not Mitt had lied about whether he was still involved with his former company, Bain, after he took the position at Olympics Corp. Mr. Romney denied being involved with Bain despite being paid $100,000 per year by them.

    "Mr. Romney was willing to go on national TV and lie to the public, multiple times. That was a big plus in his favor. 'Take charge' attitude, a perfectly square head, unbridled greed. Again, all traits which our previous presidents shared, which is why he made it so far in the selection process.

    "However, when we discovered that all of this hubbub was over a measly $100 grand per year, we determined that Mr. Romney lacked the sort of long-term planning skills that are required to head U.S. Inc.
    "In this situation its sort of a catch-22 for us.

    Either he was planning at the time to leave his company and seek out one of the elected positions, and didn't realize that a tiny paycheck now could cost him the big bucks later, or, he had no plans at all to shop himself around to the headhunters, meaning he didn't have the next 10 years of his life obsessively plotted in minute detail. Either way he clearly does not take the long view and therefore is unsuitable for any position in the upper levels of the Corporate power structure."

    Will U.S. Inc's stock price suffer from this latest development?

    Mr. Flipper: "The investment world knows that the process of choosing a president is long and arduous, involving many meetings, lunches, long weekends in Taiwan, opportunities to learn more about the candidates and how they deal with real world situations, the little people etc. Despite the long vacancy in the President/COO positon our stock has remained strong and smart investors will ensure it continues to in the future."

    The Prez/COO seat has been vacant since the previous president, Barry O. Bomba, was deported for failing to produce a Green Card early last year.
