Chaos? The Louisiana 2012 Republican State Convention Explained: Video

A friend put this video together with some text explaining what was going on. As a fellow participant, I can validate all of the major details are factually accurate. I am even in the video at one point :)

http://youtu.be/nkZLIuC9wzU

Some more background: we had our own security and some state troopers who were supposed to prevent Mr. Helwig and Mr. Herford from being accosted, but I suppose the establishment had the local police on their side and I guess cops don't mess with cops. We even had a contract with the convention center so that we had a right to be there even if the establishment said we had to go.

The rules the establishment tried to use were ridiculous. Here is a brief summary:

1/3 of the elected members constitute a quorum
3/4 of the elected members required to adopt a motion
3/4 of the elected members to sustain a point of order
1/2 required to call the previous question

Points of order could not be made questioning the authority of the "supplemental" new rules
the rules committee will not make rules for this convention, but make recommendations for the next one in four years.

Here is a link to the bogus rules: LAGOP Bogus Rules. Keep in mind that these rules claim to come from a valid authority, but the bylaws of the LA State Central Committee (SCC) give only the SCC the right to make rules, not the executive committee.

Amazing how you collectively

Amazing how you collectively kept your cool. I felt like I would have tried cutting the mic for the removed chair or something.
Great JOB!

I am in love with each and

I am in love with each and every one of you patriots of liberty. You keep this movement going. You sacrifice so much! This is the best display of activism and organization I have ever seen. I will never forget this, and neither will the LA GOP.

GOD BLESS YOU PATRIOTS!!! WE could have learned a thing...

...or two from you here in Washington State.

I feel we were like sheep to the slaughter.

And we let them get away with it for the most part.

IN FACT, in his closing statement, State GOP Chairman Kirby Wilbur THANKED US for being so "civil" and then reported on what had happened in Louisana with the Ron Paul supporters.

To which all the Romney supporters booed loudly.

I took his thank you as a sign we didn't get the job done here.

WE DON'T NEED THEIR APPRECIATION. WE NEED THEM TO LEARN A THING OR TWO AND BOW DOWN TO OUR AWARENESS.

WE ARE THE PRINCIPLED. INTELLIGENT AND PATRIOTIC ONES.

THEY ARE PARTY-FIRST HACKS.

THEY DON'T PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE UNITED STATES...

THEY PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY FIRST,
ISRAEL SECOND,
AND THIS COUNTRY THIRD.

That video from Louisiana is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

What a

great bunch of patriots!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Almost all nation wide conservative publications

are siding with the Paul camp on this one. The LAGOP rules committee overstepped what rules they could make concerning quorums and non recognition of a majority of votes.

Liberty!

I'm posting this video on my Facebook page and hope everyone else does the same. The ENTIRE world needs to see the corruption of the American political party system and most of all, see the Ron Paul supporters desperately trying to take back this country through legal and peaceful means. Then, to see these corrupt pollitical thugs USE OUR POLICE AGAINST THE VERY PEOPLE THAT ARE THE TRUE AMERICANS!
BRAVO to all of my RP brothers and sisters of Freedom and Liberty! You are the essence of what America used to be and WILL BE AGAIN!!

The shot heard 'round the world.

The only thing thing that would make me even more proud was when those two chairmen were in the process of being arrested that a throng (EVERYBODY THERE!!) surround those thugs and intercede, and demand the false chair be arrested. Would they have arrested everybody protesting? Would they have opened fire on people there? If so, I'm confident fire would have been returned by armed people in the audience, and no doubt there were armed people there.

That would have been the new shot heard round the world. After all, the answer to 1984 is 1776. I believe that is the direction we are going.

I also believe there are many patriot police people who WILL stand by the people. Sooner or later, the shot WILL be fired by the criminal thugs (in this case, dumbed down useful idiot Louisiana police - a disgrace), but no matter, when it happens, the police state will have decided they are running out of time.

And time is running out for Satan, thus he will resort to drastic measures.

But I pray for peace on earth and goodwill to men.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

I can confirm

We see here in Europe what happened at Louisiana convention and how outrageously criminal way the LAGOP establishment tryied to usurp authorities which it didn't have. Thumbs up to all who resisted it, some even for the price of physical injuries. This is way to go - civil disobedience to illegal authority.

Great footage!

But here's another one with much clearer footage and audio, from start to finish (55 min 20 sec). It's taken from a distance so you get a better feel for what's going. You can even hear the guys that were near the cameraman of the video above, AND it shows the full story all the way to adjournment.

You guys truly make my day.

GO RON PAUL! PEACE!

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.

Lawyers for RP - independent from Paul campaign

"Become informed of a LAWSUIT BEING FILED soon in federal court - CIVIL RIGHTS AND VOTE FRAUD VIOLATIONS. A group of attorneys have come together – “LAWYERS FOR RON PAUL” and will be on a huge conference call on Wednesday 06/06/2012 @ 7:00 pm (PST), to explain this “Heart-Pounding” event. These attorneys have expressed that WITHOUT this lawsuit, Ron Paul will NOT be able to win the nomination at the Tampa GOP National Convention in August because the it will be TOTALLY rigged for Romney. Adding further, the attorney spokesman said, “There is no chance of Ron Paul winning the election without the lawsuit.”

The core-team members of “Watch the vote 2012” are asking other WTV members to attend this conference call. Why? LAWYERS FOR RON PAUL needs assistance in finding more “Injured Parties.” Right now there are over 60 testimonies from Arizona alone. People from 10 states have already submitted their “Testimonies” of election fraud. More are needed. We need the help of WatchTheVote2012 members to perform a “MANHUNT” to find injured parties for submitting “Testimonies” to include in the lawsuit.

Watch the cops move into position

far far before the power hungry chair tells the Rules Chair to leave.

Look in the background

Down and injured

Well, you know, when someone is down and injured, the person on the mic continues to go on instead of trying to get help...that's un i ty?

When people die

In the name of defending freedom, and the American way, and the very system which sends them off to die systematically fights to suppress our ability to vote and choose our own leadership - THEN ITS TREASON!

I can't help myself, I'm so angry, and the fact that we may have come out on top in a few of these meetings doesn't make up for the fact that police stand by to brutalize elderly men and women, literally anyone who dares to stand up for themselves and the rule of law.

I am so mad that men in costumes with badges can do as they wish and use violence to validate their authority.

I'm also mad at the public for putting up with it, for allowing themselves to become and remain so ignorant!

Yesterday I was standing outside a polling place in california as the primary went on, and I can't tell you how many people stopped to make ugly remarks or be condescending towards me for supporting Ron Paul.

- "That looks like the worst exercise in futility" - "Thanks you guys, I really needed a laugh" - "He's a Racists!" -

Thats the Republican Party for you... A bunch of hateful, war-mongering, power-hungry, sociopaths with no sense of decency - no ability to connect to their common man.

I've been a Republican my whole life, but I have to say that this party is just about the worst American institution left standing. I hope they all get whats coming to them, I hope there is some justice in the world.

The truth is, a lot of people in this country don't deserve the freedom movement, they deserve the leadership they've demanded, they deserve to go hungry and see what life is like for so many other people in the world which Americans are all too ready to bomb into oblivion.

I will get over it, but I'm just too tired and pissed off to take any joy from our victories just yet. However I am very grateful to all those who made what happened in Louisiana possible.

My most sincere thanks to all of you working so hard, you're the only reason I give a damn at all. You are some of the finest people I have ever had the privilege of laboring with over a common goal. I won't stop because you exist, I will keep fighting as long as there are people like you around.

One Big Bear Hug

Don't turn blue on me ... ;) I can't express how much your heartfelt words have improved my mood. Remember this much: you're NOT alone and your labor for constitutional liberty is much appreciated by myself despite the rudeness with which you were treated.

Thanks

I need to hear that.

You're Welcome

'When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the bar room wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yes sir, the check is in the mail."'

Despite the odds, very few of us will give up. There's simply too much at stake.
Even IF Ron's campaign throws in the towel for 2012, we, the people, can NOT. We must, simply MUST, press onward to Tampa and try to nominate Ron. In addition, we have NUMEROUS elections to win for candidates running at all levels of government which will require much effort in both time and money.

Two SCOTUS cases make this a very easy class action lawsuit

Done and done.

I feel like I just witnessed Concord and Lexington

It was a privilege to view this video. We are watching history in the making. I got tears in my eyes watching this, and seeing the unity of the masses as they literally turned their back on the establishment.

Think strategy

I recommend making a second video that sticks only to fact and does not include the descriptives of Ron Paul or us in the introduction.

The reason is because these kinds of videos can influence rank and file republicans.

However, the descriptives take the video take away from being neutral and unbiased.

If anyone can catch the strategy what and why, I am doing with this website, kudos to you.

I'm so proud of our fellow Liberty Patriots in Luisiana.

I'm disgusted to see, in full detail, how the off duty police officers served, without question, a corrupt GOP leadership instead of the people they are sworn to protect. Shame on them.

Indeed

There's enough shame to go around...

This video should have 50 million views

America, wake up, your election system is no longer yours and it has not been for some time. Turn off the television and get involved! We outnumber them....

The Rockefellers
The Rothchilds
The Morgans
ALL are puppet masters....Please America wake up....

Where can I send money to help pay for legal counsel for the poor man who was shoved around?

Other "regular people" share

Other "regular people" share those names, better not to name names for many reasons. We have massive evidence here of systemic fraud, from Main to California. Be it a short or a long run ahead, there is a run toward Rule of Law, and it is up to the people, here and everywhere to teach others and work from within the system where possible. Upholding Rule of Law Includes innocent until proven guilty, even if we think we know some peoples ancestors are historically up to no good.

Sad to think that in this country, the only real main stream news comes from a communist country.

Russia is not Communist!

Sheesh.


"Know what you know, know what you don't know, and understand and appreciate the distinction."

Minarchism

It's not ? So all of the sudden in Russia there are fair

elections and no criminality concerning free enterprise ? Exactly how would you define Russia in this day and age ??

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow
