BULLETIN – Tuesday 8/28 – Fighting Romney’s Party Despots

The rules are to be voted up or down by the Rules Committee at approximately 2pm ET today – Sarah Palin, Mark Levin, Michelle Malkin, Morton Blackwell (National Committeeman, Virginia), Erick Erickson and others weigh in against all top-down rules changes – more updates in comments, as the day goes on (below, scroll…) feel free to add your own. Erickson warns, “GOP Rules Committee Rapidly Moving to Shut Out Grassroots”

This attempt by Romney’s pseudo-Republicans, to instill centralized control should be the “last straw.” It should be overwhelmingly voted down on the floor, but that should only be the start. It is party-based dictatorship through controlled committee, which is exactly how Marxist nations are run. Crony “capitalists” or not, these despots have been caught politically red-handed, despite the GOP-skin gloves.

This is the final evidence any delegate needs, to vote against Mitt Romney for the nomination. After all, the primary and caucus voters did not know this would happen. The Romney Republicans were not revealed to them. Now they are revealed for what they are. Voters were misinformed by a Romney campaign that seeks to instill literally communist style party control over America’s government, in effective conjunction with the Democrats’ own control, to lock in government through controlled dialectic. Twenty-First Century America, meet your velvety soft version of classic, old, dialectic materialism in practice. The soft-headedness that has constantly excused and swept  filth under the rug for Obama at the extremist left frame of the Overton Window is the same kind of foolhardy graciousness granted to Romney, on its “wait-for-me!” right frame. This is what we are suffering. It is time to rally against Romney-Ryan.

Surely a non-subversive, real republican GOP candidate can be drafted, who will win over rapidly failing Barack Obama. What other way exists to save the integrity of the American process of self government?

By the way, it is illegal to require a specific vote or to obviate the vote of a national delegate. Although I am not necessarily a Ron Paul supporter, this is an adequate explanation by one. That means the compromise on the new RNC rules is illegal. It also means the delegates in Tampa right now, are free to vote they way they choose and for whom they choose. And that is imperative now, with the new, subsumingly important information they now have about Mitt Romney and his coterie. Clearly, if we face an Obama vs. Romney election in November, it will not end well for America.

Thank you to @FromLA for the link to the video on federal laws against vote coercion


A compromise of sorts was reached last night, but it leaves standing “Rule 12,” which allows the RNC central committee to change the rules with a 75% vote between conventions. That in turn, would set an objective for despots’ work. That kind of rule is essentially the party rule familiar to communist nations. In such central committees, corruption establishes the committee membership and the chairman tends to dictate.

The autonomy of the GOP’s state committees, in the selection of delegates and the freedom of their nomination votes, constitute the only flimsy shield left against United States Presidents being simply selected by the devastatingly corrupt money control of the world banking network, through vote-controlling propaganda techniques, political crony graft, intimidation, extortion, and the power of “inevitability.” Witness the Romney campaign of 2012.

If that shield of republican process is shattered, there is no Republican Party and the sham operation hiding behind that name must be abandoned.

(Either way, means must be found to break the controlled dialectic of the two-party system, of which George Washington in his own way, warned.)

Malkin excerpt, more in comments:

We need them to contact the CONVENTION RULES COMMITTEE members for their state (each state has two) and tell them they want them to SIGN THE MINORITY REPORTS before Tuesday’s session at 2:00PM. You can find a copy of the list here.

Morton Blackwell’s email letter concerning the full Minority Report is now shown in comments. This is a key excerpt:

In practice, Rule 12 would enable an RNC chairman to enact almost any rules change he or she desired, because an RNC chairman already has so much power and influence that he or she can almost always can get 75% or more of the RNC members to vote for or against anything. A chairman already has the enormous “power of the purse,” and should not have also the power to change party rules at will.

UPDATE – Monday afternoon 8/27

We borrow Maggie Thornton’s lead from Maggie’s Notebook. If the committee-passed RNC rule change is adopted on the floor, these three woes upon the Republican Party will threaten to end its existence:

1) Delegates will be bound to vote in proportion to the popular vote regardless of any other considerations.

2) The presumed nominee or his agents will be able to remove or replace delegates from state conventions at will.

3) The members of the RNC may, at any time between conventions change any of the party rules by a 3/4 vote.

Sources confirm the story and a great deal of push-back by delegates, as one should expect. See the important items added as comments, below this log entry, including phone numbers of state GOP offices, for the immediate calling. Also, that I will be a guest tonight on (though I am a Christian Zionist) and “Through the Mirror,” hosted by Larry Sinclair, guest-hosted by Julio Rausseo at 7pm ET, to discuss the latest on this. The vote is scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday)

Monday, August 27, 2012, 10:18am CT

Apparently the movement for real reform, via the Tea Party and Ron Paul related efforts are perceived a threat to power, so the Republican National Committee may be destroying their party as this is read.

Their massive rule changes are to be voted  up or down by the delegates at the RNC Tuesday, one day delayed thanks to Hurricane Isaac. It is an attempt to wrest any remaining control of the presidential nominating process and the final selection of delegates, from state parties and their official, volunteer participants.

Both parties’ presidential selections have already become exercises in achieving predetermined outcomes. This is done through the aggregation of massive money, most from the central bankster connected flow of dollars, in the People’s meant-to-be-free economy. This in turn buys highly tuned mass psyop measures, including the character assassination of competing candidates who should be respected as allies.

A concomitant effect is vote suppression, through the alienation of those turned off by the control and corruption involved and the accumulated effect of attack advertising and robocall harassment. The fewer the independent-minded participants, the easier the rest are managed, after all. Call it political process population reduction.

This rule change would seal the deal for top-down control through mob rule. Any “Republican” should know that complex societies ordered by centralized democratic means  always fail to despotism. That is the very reason we have republican government instead – and why we must have a more participatorilly republican Republican Party, not less so.

If this rule change is adopted, the GOP will have thoroughly become a mere means of authoritarianism by process, to match up with the same of the Democratic Party, in the controlled dialectic.

If this rule change is adopted, the GOP must be replaced, abandoned to the way of the Whigs straightaway, a potential to which Sarah Palin has just referred.

In The PJ Tattler:

RNC to Cull Grassroots by Changing the Rules


Social media is atwitter with protest from Republican delegates and grassroots activists as the Republican National Convention stands poised to vote on proposed rule changes which will fundamentally transform the process for nominating future presidential candidates. In an open letter to delegates in Tampa, Republican Liberty Caucus national chairman Dave Nalle summarizes what is at stake and urges opposition from the floor of the convention next week.

One of the cornerstones of the Grand Old Party is a belief in republicanism and the idea that power is distributed and limited by checks and balances.  Those values are embodied in our Constitution and they were the basis of the Republican Party when it was founded and for most of its history.  Historically this has meant that most of the power in the Republican Party has rested with the party members in the states, working as delegates through their local and state caucuses and conventions to generate policy for the party in a unique collaborative process where the voice of the people could be heard strongly.

… Now there are those in Tampa who seek to overturn this traditional structure of the party, set restrictions on the free choice of party members and introduce a new and alien process which would minimize the input of the party’s rank and file and put power in the hands of party leaders and wealthy special interests who can buy the loyalty of the mob.  They have borrowed the organizing structure of the Democrats and authored rules which would cause our delegates to be bound by the votes of primary voters who may not be Republicans or share our values.  They have also proposed that the presumed presidential nominee could remove our elected delegates at whim.  Finally they want to remove control over the rule making process from the state parties to a small elite within the national committee of the party who can change the rules under which the party operates at any time.  Without fixed rules arrived at by the consent of the rank and file of the party we [state and national delegates elected at local conventions] become pawns rather than participants in the political process.

I hope that all delegates in Tampa will join me in opposing this coup within the party.  If you are a [delegate], please join with others in supporting the minority report and opposing these changes which will be voted on from the floor on Monday.  If you are watching from home, please realize that the media is not covering this issue and reach out to any delegates you know and encourage them to stand up for the rights of the state parties and the many dedicated Republicans who took part in the grassroots process which makes our party unique and protects the interests of all of its members.

The text of the proposed rule changes is attached to Nalle’s letter. The RNC rules committee approved the changes last week. But the rules will not go into affect unless approved by the convention this week. If passed, these rules will make it significantly more difficult for minority delegations to effectively participate in the convention process.

It is worth pondering why the architects of these rule changes feel it necessary to shut out new blood. This “coup” as Nalle calls it is no doubt in response to the limited success of the Ron Paul organization in a handful of caucus states. Yet, Paul was unable to secure the plurality of delegates in fives states necessary to secure a speaking appearance at the national convention. His campaign never posed a credible threat to presumptive nominee Mitt Romney. So why act to silence such a slim minority within the party? Why not embrace their contribution and grow the party? Making the process more esoteric and inaccessible will only insulate future campaigns from the grassroots activists they need to recruit and motivate in order to succeed.

I suggest we communicate to anyone we know today, who is connected with these RNC proceedings.

  1. Certain member of the RNC are just as interested in taking away American freedoms as Obama is…likely because they are all Goldman Sachs prostitutes.

    For example, Paul Ryan voted to cede enumerated powers of the Senate to Obama. He will likely cede more enumerated powers to Romney or himself if Romney wins:
    Paul Ryan also voted for TARP, NDAA, and warrantless wiretapping.
    Romney also apparently approves of unconstitutional legislation:
    Romney may also believe that he or Obama has the right to murder U.S. citizens:

    When you realize that both Romney and Obama’s biggest donor is Goldman Sachs then you may realize that Marxists have successfully defeated the United States. Goldman Sachs pays politicians to cede U.S. sovereignty to the U.N. and it appears as though both Romney and Ryan have already voted to cede U.S. freedoms in various ways. Romney and Ryan will simply finish what Obama started in giving the U.S. over to the one world government.

  5. Encouraging news out of Texas

    This is from Jube Dankworth, of the blog,, “Our Texas delegation is against the rule, and are fighting to have it overturned.”

    Dankworth explains further, “Texas delegation is totally against it, including our state officials…. Yes, I have several friends at the convention as well as keeping up on… twitter….”

    The Texas delegation could be key, if they are tactically engaged. If they fan out and communicate as “whips” throughout the committee of the whole, they should have a great deal of suasion and bring many to their senses, who may otherwise be lost in the ga-ga glamor of the occasion and find themselves goose-stepping along with the controllers.

    More communication is better than less. I’d advise readers to contact anyone they know and let them know the committee of “We the People” is very concerned.


    The Curtain is Drawn Back and the Skulduggery is Shown

    BTW, this is about rules for the next election cycle is it not – not what goes on this week?

    Funny what one can see, when one doesn’t pay attention to major media news. There has been a compromise that still prevents Romney delegates from voting for another candidate, but that may still be contested.

  7. It’s absolutely amazing that you people not only think you can change this rigged game but have faith that voicing your thoughts/voting in this rigged game even matters.

    Have we taken even an inch of ground back? All I see is us losing our rights and liberties by the mile. Nothing changes except that it gets worse by the day.

  8. Sarah Palin:
    “The Controversial Rule Change Being Debated at thehe RNC Convention…Must Be Rejected.”

    Congressman Tom Tancredo blog cites Mark Levin:
    “Romney Rules Changes Could Spark GOP Convention Floor Fight”

    Michelle Malkin:
    “Floor fight: Grass-roots activists battle attempt to rig GOP convention delegate rules Updated: Party bosses offer olive branch; “tense,” “dynamic” situation; Palin: ‘direct attack on the grass-roots'”

    Bottom line: Some top-down rules changes have been effectively withdrawn, but the RNC still wants to be able to change the rules at their whim, at virtually any point in the process, through a vote of their own orchestration.


    Please call the GOP office in your state. Demand the rejection of ALL rules changes that allow any power to be taken from STATE GOP Party Committees. Also contact anyone you know at the RNC or in GOP party positions.

  9. Extended excerpt from the Malkin entry linked immediately above:

    At least 29 members of this committee are filing Minority Reports to the full convention to try and make sure that these changes are NOT adopted into the final changes the full convention will approve on Tuesday. But we need your help to spread the word. 28 members are required to issue a minority report for the convention to even consider…and you can be sure others are working behind the scenes to peel some of them off before the meeting…so we need to create pressure for others to join!

    Let me stop here and say that this is NOT…REPEAT NOT a move by a bunch of disgruntled Ron Paul supporters. This is a group of long-time conservative activists, even “party regulars” and lots of Romney supporters, many who go back to the Goldwater days.

    We need to generate enough PUBLIC PRESSURE from grassroots conservatives that they will back off before Tusday’s meeting and withdraw their changes so that we can avoid the need for a minority report and floor fight [altogether].

    Here’s what we need before Tuesday’s session of the convention:

    1) We need all conservative Republican grassroots supporters to contact their state GOP and let them know that they OPPOSE the rules change that will give future presidential campaigns control over who gets to be a delegate (current RULE 15, but is being renumbered to 16)…and OPPOSE the new RULE 12 which allows the RNC to change the rules at any time between conventions.

    2) We need them to contact any DELEGATES to the convention they may know and tell them they OPPOSE the rules change and want them to support a move on the floor to amend this change via the MINORITY REPORTS – and support a demand for a ROLL CALL VOTE if necessary.

    3) We need them to contact the CONVENTION RULES COMMITTEE members for their state (each state has two) and tell them they want them to SIGN THE MINORITY REPORTS before Tuesday’s session at 2:00PM. You can find a copy of the list here.

    4) Finally, we would like them to help us spread the word that this is an insider power grab by a bunch of DC Beltway types who want consultants to be able to pick who the delegates are from their respective states in the future – AS WELL AS FUTURE PLATFORM COMMITTEE MEMBERS. Post a link to this page on Facebook and Twitter…spread the word on the media…COMPLAIN. Let everyone know this is wrong, and that it is ANTI-GRASSROOTS!

  10. Reports from true conservative activist delegates to at the Tampa Convention are coming back that they will vote for the full Minority Report which would strike any new centralization of the rules, including Rule 12.

    Morton Blackwell, renown leader and trainer in conservative activism and National Committeeman of the Virginia Delegation, weighed in last night in an email. Here is that email per Texas Conservative Republican News.

    Morton Blackwell: FAKE GOP Convention Compromise. Conservatives Must Not Back Down! Demand Roll Call Vote!

    Dear Fellow Delegate,

    You have heard the growing controversy regarding a number of new power grabs in the Rules of the Republican Party as proposed for adoption in the report of the Convention Committee on Rules and Order of Business.

    That committee report will be considered by the convention at today’s afternoon session.

    Do not be fooled into believing that a good “compromise” has been reached which is even near acceptable.

    The Minority Reports are alive and well. Although ferocious efforts have been made to get Rules Committee members to withdraw their names from the Minority Reports, grassroots outrage actually persuaded additional Rules Committee members to sign onto the Minority Reports since the Rules Committee meeting last Friday.

    The Rule 15 “compromise” affects only one of the three most damaging changes which the Minority Reports would correct. That is the proposal that presidential candidates would be given the power to disallow and remove delegates elected under state party rules or state law.

    Unchanged in the “compromise” are the gutting of the currently-in-effect reforms which succeeded this year in stopping the trend toward a national presidential primary and the very worst change proposed in the national rules, the proposed new Rule 12, permitting the Republican National Committee to regularly amend the national party rules between the national conventions.

    The Minority Reports would solve both problems.

    Proponents of the “compromise” ignore the enormously destructive problem of the proposed Rule 12. Rule 12 would enable 75% of the Republican National Committee later to eliminate their “compromise” and to destroy or make drastic changes in dozens of other rules which have served our party well over the years.

    In practice, Rule 12 would enable an RNC chairman to enact almost any rules change he or she desired, because an RNC chairman already has so much power and influence that he or she can almost always can get 75% or more of the RNC members to vote for or against anything. A chairman already has the enormous “power of the purse,” and should not have also the power to change party rules at will.

    There is already quite enough power flow from the top down in our party. Instead of approving more power grabs, we should be looking for ways for more power to flow from the bottom up. That’s how to attract more participants into our party.

    The media’s picked up on this series of last-minute manipulations by D.C insiders and consultants, and I’m sure you’ve been bombarded with contacts from both sides.

    The truth is, this isn’t a compromise. It’s far from it.

    This is insider establishment politics at its worst – and they’re dealing furiously against grassroots conservatives like you and me.

    And no change to Rule 15 will mean anything if a party chairman decides to use the powers given under a new Rule 12 that allows the RNC to change the Rules of the Republican Party between national conventions.

    So I’m asking you to support the full Minority Reports on the Rules – and to not be fooled by any so-called “compromise.” I especially ask you to take a stand in your delegation for a roll call vote on the Minority Reports.

    Morton Blackwell
    National Committeeman, Virginia
