Paul Attorney Threatens RNC, Romney Campaign

By Ralph Z. Hallow - The Washington Times
Monday, August 20, 2012

TAMPA — The lawyer for Ron Paul’s Oklahoma delegates to the Republican National Convention threatened Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee to withhold votes on Monday for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, according to the Oklahoma GOP chairman.

The Paul attorney told the RNC’s Committee on Contests that unless it seated the Paul delegates instead of those elected by the Oklahoma GOP, Paul supporters across the country would withhold their votes from Mr. Romney.

“That this lawyer turned a rules challenge into political blackmail was thuggish and certainly not the way to restore the first principles of this republic, which is the professed aim of the Ron Paul revolution,” Republican National Convention Vice Chairman Solomon Yue told The Washington Times.

"That this lawyer turned a rules challenge into political blackmail was thuggish and certainly not the way to restore the first principles of this republic, which is the professed aim of the Ron Paul revolution," convention Vice Chairman Solomon Yue told The Washington Times."

For crying out loud, Solomon Yue is the National Committeeman from Oregon, which is one of the 5 states CONTESTING the cheating of Ron Paul delegates by the Oregon Republican Party and the RNC! He blindly supports Allen Alley's 'authority' to appoint his friends, cronies, and party insiders OVER duly elected delegates, with no bylaws or rules cited! Of course he is on the side of ORP and RNC corruption!

ALL DELEGATES

should stand and demand thr rules be followed. I am discovering as I filter back into routine scheduled legislative district meetins that most active Republicans have NO IDEA of the crap going on. We need to contact every single delegate and be more vocal about the abuse of power by the high levels of the party and the Romney Campaign. It's Ron Paul THIS TIME, it could be anyone next time! That is what they should know. This is NOT about Ron Paul, it IS about the Party rules and ethics.

For Let Us All.......

be more thuggish unlike the RNC which has obviously not been the least bit thuggish. We certainly would not want to be known as the movement whom removed the principles for which our Republic was created.

Hiring Off-Duty Police

Hiring off-duty police to break bones and throw peaceful people in jail cells, as was done in Louisiana, is "thuggish". Breaking your own rules and cheating your members to force your goon into the nomination is "thuggish". Standing up for what's right is not "thuggish"; it's "justice".

Unwilling to seat delegates

Unwilling to seat delegates because they do not want to vote for a particular candidate is political blackmail. What happened to the people's voice? It's always the elite's to take

Excuse Me?

Seating unelected delegates is political blackmail and thuggish, never in anyone's mind to be confused with restoring first principles of this republic.

Exactly!

Exactly!

Silly

The attorney has no authority or ability to carry out that prediction as a threat. It's just a prediction.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

But there was no attorney...

They can't even get that right. Neither Porter nor Mike - who spoke for us - are attorneys. None of the 13 who challenged are.

Guess that says something right there.

What a crock!!!!

This clown who authored this piece of unmitigated garbage doesn't even have the journalistic integrity to place a name upon the Attorney.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

this is what im talking

this is what im talking about. wish the media covered all of this

The sold out puppet of ROthschild central bank GOP

is in a contest with the sold out puppet DNC, to see who can lie cheat and steal the election better. Who votes or supports is meaningless, its who can be the most vile puppet and impress the criminal bank gangster debt slaver overloards.

Kinda like a pig race to the trouth.

THIS STORY IS FALSE

First, we did NOT have an attorney in Florida today.
Second, we do NOT have any contact with Ron Paul legal, nor have we received financial or other assistance from the Ron Paul Campaign since he was here in February.
Third, the story is MUCH WORSE than the video. Watch the video, go to about 32 minutes in to see my state Chairman.
Finally, I would like to thank Porter Davis and Mike Stopp - who are not attorneys - and did not threaten anyone, yet respectfully asked for the rules to be followed - for going to Tampa on our behalf.

RP lawyer David Warrington

RP lawyer David Warrington did attend a hearing Monday on behalf of our Oregon alternate delegates. I don't know what exactly was said.

I wonder if it was Gilbert

I wonder if it was Gilbert that said that to them then. He represents himself as being a lawyer on behalf of the campaign. He even went so far as saying that they were going to take over the campaign. It wouldn't even surprise me if he is the one to have threatened them with no votes.

Blessings )o(

and I forgot to mention...

Qadoshyah was there to testify if needed, and her Dad helped prep, along with a couple of others.

Go Liberty Live Stream Team!

Oh, the Supplemental Instructions specifically prevented any recording devices, so we don't have the usual tape to go to and prove this didn't happen.

Its not blackmail !

Its a fact. What did the RNC think the Ron Paul supporters would do after being cheated at every turn ?
Remember the 80 seconds Ron Paul was given in a two hour debate?
They forget the Ron Paul supporters are the citizens paying attention to what is going on.
They are not sheep .
I hope that the Romney delegates have watched what has gone on and see that Willard (the rat) Romney is not what America needs.
I guess we find out next week.

Tin Pan

You don't

address a gigantic problem with a "pretty please". These Romney thugs don't pay attention to polite requests. It takes a huge force to push against the huge problem. (Problem = cheating and ignoring RP's winnings)

Keepin' it real.

It's not blackmail because we

It's not blackmail because we were going to withhold our votes anyway, lol

“That this lawyer turned a rules challenge into political blackm

was thuggish and certainly not the way to restore the first principles of this republic,..."

Oh, Wait bitch. Wait til you see what happens during the general election. When R-Money and Big-Government-Liberal-Liar Ryan get toasted by Hussein Obama.

GOOD!!!!

RNC Speaks Against Paulites

https://new.livestream.com/accounts/1324161/events/1055841 @32:00 talks about Ron Paulites From Oklahoma

@ RNC: Don't complain if Romney or Obama take you to WW 3

You did not want Ron Paul or so it appears. One reaps , what one sows. Sadly the rest of us will have to suffer too.

The Foxes are Truly Guarding the Hen House!

Mr. Yue is National Committeeman from Oregon, and participated in and made excuses for the "thuggery" committed at our conventions by the ORP.

It is so ridiculous, it's almost laughable...I say almost, of course, because the stakes are too high to be laughing about this.

Lord help us...I'll probably have to be detained and psychologically evaluated for saying this online.

tilting@windbags

Agreed!!

Yue, Alley and the corrupt gang in Oregon have the email capability to reach all of the Republican PCPs in our state. They have used the official email letterhead to slander those who supported the Unity slate at our five District Conventions.
Some of us are personally, at our own expense, contesting the corrupt, lawless behavior of the ORP elite.
The lies they are telling is that we have "big money" to "hire lawyers to write letters and fund staff to stir things up". They say "It is unclear where the funding for this very substantial organization is coming from, Is it George Soros and his organizations? Is it a seclusive Democrat PAC?"!! (Silly me, I thought the money to attend the conventions to participate and vote as an elected PCP came out of MY pocket.)
I take these lies as personal attacks. They have insinuated I am not a "faithful Republican" and that I am an "infil-TRAITOR". I didn't personally see the email but I heard we are now part of the "Occupy Movement"
Their tactic seems to be to use talking points from the Fox News, and it apparently works on those who get their news from the TeeVee.

Yeah for crying out loud,

Thuggery?

When have the Ron Paul supporters broken other peoples bones for disagreeing with us? When have we shut other candidates supporters out of a vote? When have we changed the rules to benefit ourselves?

And they have the nerve to refer to us a THUGS????????

The way this republican fiasco has been ran is a perfect example of thugs in charge! And it's NOT RON PAUL SUPPORTERS!

We do not want thugs ruling over the USA.

BUMP to Jimwill.

GOP is Toast

The RNC should know that because Romney won't disavow this violence and corruption he will lose 20% of the conservative vote.

It's too late now.
