VA Delegation Bus being Redirected away from Convention to prevent them from voting against Rules Committee Power Grab


The Virginia and Rhode Island delegations are apparently being blocked from entering the Republican National Convention. They're keeping us all on a bus and not allowing us in the security perimeter.

Please share this news with your friends.

-Chris Stearns, Delegate from Virginia on the bus.

URGENT: Ben Swann looking for info. If you know delegates at the RNC have them send cell phone video. (Thanks for the tip, Maeve)

Just Called InfoWars

I AM the MAN with the BULLHORN:
...Chris Matthews yesterday's MSNBC show;
Michael Stone past RNC Chairman had just left the stage.

From the rear of the audience I announced via bullhorn:


THANK YOU to the young fella who suddenly appeared with a RON PAUL 2012 hand held Campaign Sign....but I made my point, much to the
AMAZEMENT of the "Plastic Republicans" wearing Styrofoam Straw Hats.

Security came outta the woodwork like cockroaches when you turn on the lights...scattering ..everywhere...and I started walking as I was yelled at that I was on PRIVATE PROPERTY, in answer to my assertion:
...and on a public street....a block-and-a-half away I was chased down by two cops, and "informed" that the SIDEWALK I was on was
PRIVATE PROPERTY!....Thank God I now had a local contact on the phone and he witnessed me telling the cops that I was continuing on...to the jitney-trolley-car that would take me to Ybor City....stay tuned.

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

Update from alternate delegate:

Jonathan James McMillan

I've received a report from our very own Karen Kwiatkowski that she saw Chris running like the devil. So I guess he's trying to get to the Platform committee meeting. I'm guessing Morton Blackwell will shortly be there also......hopefully.

Iowa delegates SENT HOME

This from USTREAM: "suriyahfishadmin-1: LLST confirming: Iowa delegates SENT HOME, Rhode Island and Virginia barred from attending."

(what's LLST?)

Any confirmation from the delegates?

We need additional confirmation

Attention All Delegates! Break your "Binds" and vote for the Constitution in Tampa! Ron Paul 2012

What's this about? Please

What's this about? Please confirm.

Gee, sounds like a little "false imprisonment" claim there?

The bus driver, the bus company, and the people who directed the buses elsewhere need to understand...

So far on the floor the speakers are not getting

too much applause. I caught the end of a CNN interview w Dana Bash and a disgruntled Ron Paul delegate complaining that the GOP has refused to seat our delegates then he would walk off the floor. Opps off script.

What's the wind speed in Tampa now?

I don't think I'd want to drive or ride a bus in 60 MPH gusty winds, but I could probably handle 30 MPH or so. Could the weather be their excuse?

Blowing Real Hard

...from the podium right now.

No, the weather here is just fine.

No rain, no wind, a nice day, slightly humid and overcast.

Weather is fine...

Then isn't some kind of crime being committed, interfering with those citizens' Free Passage?

The Problem With Good People

...is that they ALWAYS underestimate evil people. Don't worry though, I'm sure the RNC will provide sack lunches and eventually let them off once they get to Richmond, Des Moines, and Providence.

Ever vigilante!


Free includes debt-free!


The problem isn't underestimating the evil of THEM - the problem is not recognizing and healing the evil in me which is only being reflected to me by THEM.

There's romney people on the buses too


It Just Means

Romney is willing to sacrifice a few of his own for "the cause".



That's it! Mitt "Longshanks" Romney

make it stick people.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul

3 States so far being denied?!

Iowa, Virginia, and Rhode Islande?!

Call/text every delegate you know.

BTW, the best way to get it on Drudge is to get it on INFOWARS.com They are linked to them and frequently feature their stories.

Fight the Ron Paul blackout on the Daily Paul (now 'P AU L'), put his removed poster back as your avatar:


ND is/was late. Not sure if they are there yet. about an hour ago a delegate posted she said the buses were at least 1.5 hours late.

Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down.

No Morton Blackwell did not

No Morton Blackwell did not make the meeting. He confronted the Chairman of the Rules Committee meeting after it adjourned. I see tweets of a video coming soon. There are preperations being made for a floor battle. Here is some proposed langage change for Rule 16 as tweeted from a delegate there:


thank you

for the update.

The GOP has just clinched it...

My vote this Fall will be a vote of dissent. I hope that more of us will vote for Gary Johnson as the only way to demonstrate the importance of our movement (it's the only way the pundits will be able to count us) or stay home. I will give money to Obama's campaign and copy the confirmation to all of the Republicans I know.

Unlearning and self-teaching since 2008. Thanks, Dr. Paul!

Gary Who?

Isn't this a "let's figure out how to get Good Doctor Paul elected President" site?

I'm voting for Ron Paul, even if I have to write him in. I was essentially born Libertarian, but the Libertarians historically get so few votes that it's like an exercise in futility. I held my nose to register Republican so I could vote Dr. Paul in the CA primary - my papar ballot disappeared into the maw of some black box with electric motors inside - I have no idea how to find out if it was counted, or how to keep an eye on the actual election ballots. What good is a paper ballot if the hole reader redirects it to the shredder?

In other words, I'm not voting GJ, I'm voting Dr. Ron Paul, PERIOD!

Wish you were with us.
