RNC reports that the convention is postponed until Tuesday due to Hurricane Isaac

UPDATE: If you are a delegate, you might still want to report on Monday. The RNC may be trying to trick the Paul delegates by telling them that Monday is entirely cancelled.

Republican National Convention President and CEO Bill Harris made the following statement: “Our chief priority is the safety of the residents of Florida, of those visiting the Convention, and all those in Gulf Coast states who may be impacted by Tropical Storm Isaac. We have been working closely with the campaign, the party, and state and local officials for months to ensure a successful, enjoyable convention. Federal, state and local officials assure us that they are prepared to respond, if needed, and the scheduling changes we are announcing today will help ensure the continued safety of all participants – our foremost concern. We are also committed to keeping the delegates and guests of the convention well informed about the situation, and we will continue providing updates in the hours and days ahead.”

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus made the following statement: “Due to the severe weather reports for the Tampa Bay area, the Republican National Convention will convene on Monday August 27th and immediately recess until Tuesday afternoon, August 28th. After consulting with Governor Scott, NOAA and local emergency management officials, we are optimistic that we will begin an exciting, robust convention that will nominate the Romney-Ryan ticket.

I just took a hot tub sitting

I just took a hot tub sitting outside in Tampa. Doesn't seem like much of a storm. Like no rain, maybe a very light drizzle briefly.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

CNN just showed alive picture of tampa

There was a little palm tree branch in the shot that was barely moving and no rain at all. The guy actually said, Its blowing a lot harder and raining a lot harder than it shows in this live picture". Yeah people don't believe your own eyes in the live shot. It's pretty sad when the news people can talk you into not believing your own eyes.

NEWS for Delegates

look like Issac will be far west into the Gulf of Mexico than over Tampa.

RNC reports Due to the Hurricane and the fact that

Mit Romney has been declared the PRESUMPTIVE NOMINEE, they will not need to have the convention and will simply declare Mitten's the magic underwear, wearer the Republican Candidate For the office of PREDIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

The end.

PS No is still my final answer and elnlightened disengagement my weapon of choice.

Seeing as Romney is in charge

Seeing as Romney is in charge of everything else, why doesn't he just POSTPONE the hurricane?

Yah send up some of his master ROthschild's

Depopulation CHem Trails and do some weather modification. Perhaps HAARP. Maybe its the plan to generate a Hurricane to avoid having the convention?

Well im just speculating.

Probably using Isaac to keep the media away from the RNC

on Monday so they can get their "dirty business" done. Perhaps a rules change? Nix the roll call vote and just do a voice vote for the nomination? Or just have the Romney delegates collude with the chair to railroad the vote through? Ah yes, how I do admire their ability to ignore inconvenient rules and points of order.

Why even bother to convene on Monday if Isaac is such a danger to public safety? I frankly doubt there will be an "immediate recess" unless too many of the known Paul delegates show up.

Isaac is barely going to even brush Tampa, but of course the MSM is hyping the hell out of it..

Sins are committed in secret. They've created their opportunity to hide. Be ready.

VOTE HAPPENS ON MONDAY - BE THERE MONDAY

just to make it very clear! spread the word like wildfire

I am in St Pete FL

And it is raining but who knows

..

lightly

.

If I were a national delegate I would definitely show up extra early and keep everyone informed on the situation.

Ron Paul all the way

there will be a vote tomorrow....so says the news!!!

I fell asleeq on the ride home from the rally, but my husband said he heard on the radio, tamqa bay news reqorting that they ARE voting tomorrow!! He said they are cancelling all other activities for the day but will vote tomorrow. I will watch the local news tonight and see if this is reqorted on television. All delegates must be there - qlease!!!

inform the delegates who won't see this post

we won't know which delegates don't know yet are until we find they don't show up on Monday. I'm sure there are a number of delegates who don't frequent dailypaul.com (just sayin' - not bashing the site!) make sure they all know. word of mouth!

I am in florida now at our

I am in florida now at our home in Maderia. We came for the rally and are scheduled to fly home tomorrow. Our flight has NOT been cancelled. Local FOX station reqorted (sorry the letter after "o" on my comquter is broken so I am using a q instead).....reqorted that the RNC is qlanning on an early vote BECAUSE there are too many delgates for our good doctor and they are worried. Show uq on Monday...this is a troqical storm and Tamqa is not exqecting hurricane winds. I don't know if this is a trick or not, but the RNC is run by a bunch of cheater crooks who should NOT be trusted. Best of luck to all the delegates...and THANK YOU!!!!!!

Lots of people fear

Lots of people fear hurricanes, as they should, and are canceling their hotel reservations. A great opportunity for Liberty minding individual to get their room and go to the convention.

Take over Tampa.

The RNC didn't want to give Dr. Ron Paul a time to speak, so Nature produced a hurricane to delay the Convention. They will need something to fill in the time, so Dr. Ron Paul will take over Tampa.

Love you all,

Divine intervention?

Take advantage of this time to expose the RNC/GOP corruption and demonstrate Ron Paul's stronger chances of beating Obama to all remaining Romney supporters.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Assume EVERYTHING the RNC says is a LIE!!

Don't believe the "postponed" report. It is no doubt, a false one.

When injustice becomes Law; Revolution becomes DUTY!!

Stand your ground patriots!!

Tonight we dine in Tampa!!!

Has Anyone Considered This Could Be Divine Intervention?

I've been reading all of the posts here and there are some good ones about showing up on Monday irregardless, etc., which I totally agree with. The delegates must be especially vigilant now until the nominee is chosen (God willing Ron Paul), and never let down their guard or take their eyes off the enemy for a moment.

However, have any of you considered what a blessing this storm might be for us right now, and how it may even be Divine Intervention? Let me put it this way, if I was one of those establishment crooks that has been lying and cheating like crazy to steal the nomination from Ron Paul, the delay(s) this storm is causing would make me terribly uneasy. Just think of it, a delay gives our delegates the precious time they need to turn Romney delegates...as well as delegates for Gingrich and Santorum (which they weren't going to have with the RNC pushing up the nomination to Monday. (I can't help but wonder if the Good Lord responded to their dirty games by saying, "Okay boys, then I'll give you a storm to deal with.")

A delay could also gives the federal judge in California -- who has already ruled favorably on a key issue in the delegate case before him -- another day to rule on the bound/unbound issue, which, if the ruling is favorable, would spread like wildfire from California to Florida. (If anyone knows for certain that he has already ruled on this issue, please let us know. It's my understanding he hasn't ruled yet but I could be wrong.)

Bottom line, in my view, any kind of delay at this point is to our advantage, and for that reason, mysself and others all over America are praying on this Sunday of Sundays for God to control this storm for the sake of liberty and the people of this country. If you feel the same, join in. Pray without ceasing. This just might turn out to be the "miracle" I told my better half the other day that we desperately needed.

Blessings to you all today...

The Lord works in mysterious

The Lord works in mysterious ways!! I will be praying with you and I'm sure many, many other Patriots!!!

Name of hurricane is Isaac?

In the Bible, Isaac was Abraham's child of the promise. I'm not sure what to make of it, but it speaks of faith in the promise over the works of the law. I just did a search in the New Testament for Isaac, and here are some verses in case someone is interested:

Isaac in the New Testament

Romans 9:7 and 9:10
Galatians 4:28
Hebrews 11:9; 11:17 and 18; Hebrews 11:20
James 2:21

No risk of Tampa Hurricane

The NOAA indicates the hurricane path continues to move further westward and will not hit Tampa.
