DNC votes just as scripted as RNC’s

Well surprise, surprise! </Gomer Pyle voice>. The Dems’ elite insiders are criminal too!

Just days after the Republican establishment was caught totally ignoring the actual delegate votes at the RNC (see previous post here), the Dems are caught in the exact same chicanery.

Here’s a lovely video comparison:

Note segment at 4:28 showing their chair reading what his verdict of the voice vote is going to be off a teleprompter.

I don’t know whether to be heartened that our team is no more criminal than their team, or to be disgusted that our entire nation is in the control of an elite serving their own interests alone.

No contest – Disgusted dominates

2012 RNC – premeir Boehner’s tele-boner

First up in evidence: a vote.

We’ll look first at the evening news portrayal of the vote. Then we’ll look at it from several angles. Here is what we will learn:

  • The voice vote was clearly too close to call
  • Herr Boehner declared it passed on a voice vote anyway
  • Herr Boehner ignored properly made calls for division

But wait! There’s more!

  • We will look at the teleprompter Boehner was reading from – which clearly shows that the result of the vote was preordained.

That’s right – Boehner declared that they ayes have it merely because he was reading the word on the teleprompter. The vote was determined to pass before the vote was even taken!

Let that sink in a minute.

The results were fait accompli. The floor vote would pass because the cabal had previously declared that it would. There will be no real vote taken. Only the appearance of a deliberative process for the benefit of the corporate news media.

The topic of the vote is pretty interesting as well, but that will be a story for another day.

What? You don’t believe me? Who are you going to believe? You or your own lying eyes?

Ponder that for a bit – I’ll be by in a while with the next article of evidence.

2012 RNC shenanigans – installment 1

To the casual observer, the news coverage of this year’s Republican National Convention would lead one to believe that nothing was amiss. Certainly, all the national news outlets presented a smooth picture of smiling people working harmoniously together in happy unanimity.

But that would be a false impression.

We are all busy people. We don’t often have the time to look deeper than the superficial portrayal of events spoon-fed to us in nice, 30-second segments by the handful of corporate conglomerates that is affectionately known as the mainstream media (MSM).

So we could be forgiven if we have been unaware of the things that went on at the 2012 Republican National Convention.

As a supporter of a candidate that was systematically marginalized by a train of injustices, I had cause to pay attention to what was really occurring, both on the convention floor, the breakout committees, and the proverbial smoke-filled back rooms.

Over the next week or two, I will present a number of incidents that occurred. Each of these, in isolation, may or may not rise to the level of obvious violations of the rule of law.

After presenting these in isolation, I will bring them together in a narrative that lays bare the inescapable conclusion that there is a power center within the RNC that will resort to any technique imaginable — legal, violation of bylaw, violation of parliamentary procedure, immorality, or outright criminality — to cement their power over the grassroots of the party.

Some of the evidence will include:

  • scripted votes
  • rule changes, and the manner adopted
  • barring duly credentialed delegates from the grounds
  • ignoring calls for division
  • ignoring parliamentary procedure
  • illegitimately disenfranchising delegates
  • on the spot changes of qualification for nomination (5? no 8!)
  • illegitimately disenfranchising entire delegations
  • illegal indefinite detention
  • and more!

If you follow the presentation of evidence, I fervently believe that you will come to the conclusion that the leadership of the RNC is playing the entire corpus of the party, while we dance to their tune.

Hang on – it’s going to be a bumpy ride

2012 Republican National Convention wrapup

Well, the 2012 Republican National Convention is now over.

Immediate topline news: Romney won the presidential nod, with Paul Ryan as the veep choice.

Digging deeper: party bosses, perhaps in an effort to make a spectacle of the coronation of the new king, pushed though a number of odious rule changes, and disenfranchised many duly-elected delegates from several states.

Further: a number of dirty tricks — perhaps outright criminality — were resorted to in order to present this unified front.

I will of course hew to the behavioral norms mandated of a person in my office (Vice Chair of Boulder County Republicans). I will work diligently side-by-side with my fellow BCR members to get our entire slate of local candidates elected. As the weeks unfold, however, I am likely to skirt right up to the edge of what the bylaws allow. Why? It is my firm belief that there are insiders within the Republican National Committee that will stop at nothing to retain ham-fisted control over the party. These usurpers must be cast out. Either: before the tide of public opinion turns against our party, due to the craven lawlessness with which they are acting; or before the entire nation descends into a tyrannical despotism as did Germany through the ’20′s.

We are Republicans. We claim adherence to the rule of law. The vast majority of the rank and file actually live by this principle. We will not be dictated to by a criminal cabal at the top.

We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.
