The Nebraska GOP Convention

Nation Ruled By Swine

WinLiberty Provided the following updates all day

UPDATES (most recent items at top) :

Omaha newspaper says Paul got “smoked” – because he did nothing

Ron Paul is the candidate who made the fewest campaign appearances of anyone running—BY FAR—and who did literally NOTHING of consequence to assist supporters in the state battles all over the nation.

Again, in Nebraska, he did nothing to help.  He didn’t even bother to send a decent sized crew of surrogates to Nebraska in the last few weeks and hasn’t done anything for 2 months.

Indeed, the good guys “got smoked.” 

Romney had a crew of 5 shipped in specialists plus an attorney, all on hand to make sure it happened.  Ron Paul ALSO made sure it happened by staying away and doing nothing.

To the very good Ron Paul supporters of Nebraska:

Thank You!  You worked long and hard.  You did a good job.

(note, there was no Ron Paul slate being voted on here —the Ron Paul people did not submit a slate, the Romney side DID submit a slate; no way to tell how many on that slate support which candidate but it obviously looks promising for Romney —meaning, delegates might be “stealth” delegates who are expected to vote at the national convention for one candidate but actually support the other.)– UPDATE: There won’t be any stealth delegates; since the Ron Paul campaign did nothing but assist the Romney camp in this one don’t get your hopes up.

2:34pm CDT — They now are voting on Alternate Delegates

2:24pm CDT — (initial reports, not confirmed by WinLiberty) Romney won all 23 of the At Large Delegates

2:06pm CDT — Back from lunch, live stream working again

1:00pm CDT — lunch break; convention due to resume at approx 2:30pm CDT

11:21am CDT —  Romney over Paul 7-2 on delegates selected by district (9 delegates are selected by district)— Next up is vote for 23 At Large Delegates

10:59am CDT — Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana now addressing convention

10:49am CDT — Reince Priebus (RNC National Chair addressing the convention—neither Romney nor Paul attended the convention)

10:28am CDT — Now waiting for tally of ballots–

10:25 am CDT — RP side lost credentials vote 185-125-this indicates Romney supporters have a majority in the room.  Count is overseen by 2 representatives of each side.  First count by machine; second count is ‘overseen’.  There was no count from a show of hands, no count in public.— with just over 300 delegates present and voting, one must wonder why machines are necessary or advisable

Why the Nebraska Convention Is Important

This the last major state convention before the National Convention in August.

Ron Paul remains the only candidate whose supporters come out by the THOUSANDS.

WinLiberty continues to cover Ron Paul because Mainstream Media won’t.

“The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. It may be frail — its roof may shake — the wind may blow through it — the storm may enter — the rain may enter — but the King of England cannot enter — all his force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement!” William Pitt

 

How do we know government is out of control?

Government controls via tax and regulation.

When you no longer control your body and your property you can be sure you don’t control government.

People are being arrested and ruined for taking raw milk across state lines.

Forced Entries

The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. It may be frail — its roof may shake — the wind may blow through it — the storm may enter — the rain may enter — but the King of England cannot enter — all his force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement!   William Pitt

Government controls us via taxes and regulation on just about everything, even telling us what we may or may not ingest.  Always it’s done ‘for our own good‘ and it extends even to things like taking raw milk across state lines.

Government rightly is said to be out of control when a person doesn’t own his/her own body and control what is put into it.

We Killed Yamamoto

[at a certain point in World War 2 some guys decided to kill the Jap]

For those of you who do not know, in World War 2 a decision was made to assassinate Admiral Yamamoto.

There are consequences to murder.  Always.

The inestimable Aaron Sorkin wrote this great bit for The West Wing

Sometimes the better part of valor means leaving the field.

Sometimes there is no honor in remaining.

Sometimes it’s simply necessary that we listen to the better angels of our nature.

Leave the fucking Iranians alone.  We already locked up one of their presidents.

It hasn’t worked out well.

Leave the poor people alone.

Admiral Yamamoto was a human being

[and yes, he was a Jap]

They Will Seize Guns in Tampa-Despite State Law

Concealed Carry

Tampa City Council has asked that the right to hold and carry concealed weapons be “suspended”  under Florida law.  Since that “right” is ‘protected’ under state law and may not be violated at the local level the Democratic Party led Tampa City Council has sought to make this an issue by appealing to the Republican Governor to do it for them.  This is a stunt.

WinLiberty already has met this

The RNC WILL embrace this.  Part of this embrace is the complete silence on the part of the Ron Paul campaign.  They will NOT oppose this.

You can view one bunch of bs here.

The Republican Governor of Florida just issued a stupid assed statement saying he won’t back a violation of gun rights.  What he said decries who he is.  He Will back his stupid ass down once the Republicans in charge tell him to do so.  He’s only awaiting a “ruling” by the Secret Service.  That “ruling” by an administrative agency will come before the end of July.

It will come when there is no time left to challenge it in court and when our people are left defenseless on the streets.

This is how rights are stifled.  They are setting up a perimeter of 1,000 feet out based on line of sight bullshit which completely abrogates the rule of law.

Long standing federal law has held that protestors  MUST be visible to the public.  The essence of this law, these protections is clear to us all.  We MUST be allowed to know our neighbors.  How can we do that if we can’t see them?

This extra legal ruling will determine the perimeter of the events.  In short, this ruling is pre-determined and all among the GOP elite and, sadly, yes, Mr. Ron Paul and his campaign welcome it.

They seek to stifle. WinLiberty seeks speech rights.

WinLiberty is covering this and wants everyone to know there will be no marches in Tampa.  There simply will be no free speech allowed. They’ve already shut off speech to .7 of one mile, where they will permit speech to an industrial area well off the path of line of sight.  NO Ron Paul force is taking them on here, least of all the candidate, whose history is NEVER to take on the feds in anything they wish to do.

So you have these amateurs, these well intentioned people trying to organize marches which will be limited to the one out of the way industrial area sanctioned for a march.

Our Side Already has Lost

It’s going to work like this.  The Tampa City Council is distributing the 50 million taxpayer dollars to various city powers.  This is a grab bag kind of thing.  They are buying influence and that influence includes Republicans at the highest levels of that party.  They take these contracts AND they influence proceedings based on this money.

ACLU IS on this

WinLiberty is on this and very enthusiastically can report that the ACLU is on this.  That means legal help is available to those wising to march (well, maybe anyway).  The ACLU already has filmed the bs public assembly locations announced, doing so just the other day.  They’ve filmed the places under the freeway and out of line of sight of anyone attending the convention and this exactly is what must be done preparatory to a legal challenge.

We hope they make such a challenge.  Anyone wising to march needs to contact them.  IF you are down there and/or expect to be and IF you want to march and/or otherwise protest contact WinLiberty IF you wish to be noticed, if you wish your protest to be seen and heard.  We’ll try to help.

The RNC and Tampa Officials Are Lying Here

WinLiberty notes that the line of sight bs the GOP engages in here is directly counter to long held law.  THEY are saying it’s about line of sight to the frontage of the convention center when court rulings long have held that protestors must be visible to the public.

See, the way Tampa officials are interpreting the relevant law is exactly opposite.  They are saying that it’s about line of sight by the protestors when courts long have held that it’s necessary for the protestors to be visible to the general public.

That is the difference here.  Understand that and you understand a free society.  Miss it and you don’t get a free society.

THEY are saying hey, we’re going to let the fenced in protestors see the frontage of the convention venue and that’s it, that meets the free speech standard.  That’s not it.

The Secret Service has until late July to issue their ‘permits’ for the perimeter of the venue.  At that time, here’s what they will do. The Secret Service is highly unlikely to take on concealed carry directly as protection of that right is state law.  However, direct action isn’t necessary.  Who will challenge the Secret Service who is there to protect us?  No one.  Hence, the Secret Service, by their late July recommendations will ban concealed carry for a minimum of 1,000 feet from the convention frontage.

This, effectively, will tell you that any demonstrator group planning to “disrupt” the proceedings may be stopped and searched and stop and search they will.

WinLiberty has more to say about this and we will say it.

It’s a developing story.
