UPDATED: Reince Priebus Reads the Daily Paul Quite Often and Knows Jesse Benton

Jeff Larson's commentary on FB:

Let me give you the skinny. So, as we were getting ready to go to the strategy session, we couldn't help but notice signs on easels advertising a Reince Priebus for Chair party for tonight, after the Bobby Jindal dinner. This wasn't part of the agenda, and I got the impression it was thrown together to further cement support for Priebus, just in case there was ANYONE still on the fence.

We found out that Mark's candidacy came to an end just before dinner. After dinner, some of us decided that there might be some useful thing we could do to advance the cause of liberty by going to what was now Priebus's victory party, and if there wasn't, we could always leave.

So, we mingled a bit, and I had just finished my beer, and was beerless. Reince sidled up to me, jostled my elbow, and suggested I have a drink in a friendly way. At the point, the interaction was pretty superficial. He was just playing the role of amiable host, and I was just playing the role of gracious guest. We engaged in a little small talk, he gave me another friendly nudge, and ambled off to schmooze the next party goer.

And after a few minutes, it hit me. Why didn't I just go talk to him about our "stuff"? What did I have to lose?

So, I approached him, and waited about 10 minutes or so while he finished up a long conversation with two ladies. I got his attention, and pointed out we hadn't been properly introduced earlier.

"Reince Priebus, RNC Chair." God as my witness.

I introduced myself as the chair of the Texas Republican Liberty Caucus, and we were off to the races. My goal was to offer an olive branch, in an attempt to heal the rift between the liberty movement and the RNC establishment. If he smacked it away, well, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

He didn't smack it away. He seemed genuinely interested in figuring out what to do so that he could get us to not just tolerate each other, but be, as he put it, "happy warriors".

If he could get a grade for talking the talk, it would be an A. Of course, there has been no walking the walk yet, and I suspect that's the part we care about, anyway. But along the way, he mentioned that he did read the Daily Paul quite often, knew Jesse Benton, etc.

We were joined by Benjamin, and later by Eric. It was getting to the point where we were really monopolizing his time, but to his credit, he didn't just bail on us. I didn't have a watch on it, but I wouldn't have been shocked to find that he spent 20 solid minutes on us.

I think where we all left it was a pledge to get back with each other and have a more substantial conversation by the rules meeting, which would mean by April.

Maybe this was all nothing. Maybe this was an important step in gaining acceptance for the liberty movement. Only time will tell.

End of commentary.

Just for fun, this photo is appropriate!

Commentary by me from comment section below:

I did not write the preceding commentary. It was written by a friend who has done more for our cause than most on this forum. I tried the whole working through the party thing. I was a state delegate in 2008 and in 2012, and I even attended the RNC in Tampa and witnessed first hand the blatant corruption. I've told my friends that I would be by their side to help in anyway that I could, and dammit that's what I intend on doing. I have chosen to work outside the party by trying to help libertarian entrepreneurs, but some of my friends are darn good at what they've been doing inside the party, especially in Texas. I intend to support them through thick and thin and you're welcomed to join. We'd love to have you and any others who want to quit complaining and start doing.

The person telling the story above was not convinced of Reices's sincerity completely, but rather is going to use the opportunity to pursue the same ends we all want to advance. I assume most have not read further discussion on this topic, which might actually be set as "public" on FB if you go digging around. I suggest if we all desire the same ends that we be more tolerant of others means. "IF" being the operative word.

Yes, as many have alluded to below, leadership has proven to sleep with swine, but an ever growing amount of underlings and grassroots people in the GOP are already or are slowly becoming sympathetic to our cause. We must continue to pursue their hearts and minds, and if continuously outing their leadership as not beholden to their own rules and promises makes our job of spreading the ideas of liberty easier (it will), then we'll continue to catch them in lies.

When Priebus doesn't do squat like most of us assume based off his actions to date, when he doesn't honor his pledge to meet with us and work to fix the rules, it's now documented that he once again remained divisive and disinterested in the libertarian wing of the party.

Like I mentioned in the comments below, I'm not working through the party anymore because it's too frustrating for me personally, and I feel like I'm more effective in other areas, but that does not mean that working through the GOP is not necessary. I'm not out protesting in the streets either, but that does not mean that's not necessary too. I support all efforts to advance liberty and expose the crooks. What's so hard to understand about that?

To quote a good friend of mine, "If you tell me that we are charging the gates of hell and I say I will support you then I promise you won't have to look around for me. I will be the guy on your right with a bucket of water."

I've told my friends who have made the decision to stay and fight for all the grounds liberty has won in local and national GOP politics (which in Texas is quite impressive), and as I said, dammit, that's what I intend on doing!

Please try to be more tolerant of others' means to our same ends, assuming we have the same ends at heart.

What happens when SHTF and all those GOPers are looking for answers, looking for where to go? Wouldn't we be in a better position to influence them if we've been in their meetings the whole time leading up to the crisis trying to warn of the impending danger?

Bullshit

Sorry, I am not an idiot everyday.

I wonder if Priebus knows

How much the war talk against Iran killed Romney. When Romney was talking economy he didn't do half bad.

As soon as he started talking about Iran, Russia, Benghazi, or any other foreign policy he got murdered out there.

The problem is foreign policy, not messaging. He needs to reduce the Neo-Con influence on the Republican leadership and get back to Eisenhower, Kennedy or Reagan foreign policies, which were popular for a very good reason - because they were effective.

Reposted from below...what many seem to be missing is that...

Ah, it warms the heart to see so many here have taken a literary classic to heart. Are you all enjoying your two-minute hate? Done yet?

Look, I was at Tampa, and my vote was pledged by my state party rules to Ron Paul on the first round. Of course that vote wasn't counted...at least not officially. My state chairman announced my vote, but that didn't do any good.

I wasn't very happy about what happened in Tampa, no happier than most of you. I can accept that my favorite candidate didn't have enough votes to win the nomination. I can't accept that grown men and women felt obligated to pretend - like a child - that no votes were cast for him. The GOP can do better - and should.

I was in the room when the Credentials Committee ruled against Maine, and Oklahoma, and Oregon. My friends were in the room next door while the Rules fiasco was happening. I've been a part of this party since before some of you were born, and let me tell you, this just hurts. I recall that during a break in the Credentials Committee hearings that I went out into the hall and started talking with a sympathetic delegate. My words? "This is madness...this is the destruction of the Republcan Party!" I was that distraught.

I also recall that I was almost thrown out of the meetings just for talking to the "wrong" person during that break, and would have been had a friendly Credentials Committee member not interceded. I have no illusions about the specific type of hardball that was played. I have many similar stories about that convention...perhaps you have read of some of them here, perhaps others you have not.

But that convention is over and all those shenanigans were for nought. Obama won, and now we're stuck with four more years of soaring budgets and nanny-state gubbage. I know that some of you would say that Romney would have done the exact same thing. You are wrong. He would have done many of the same things but not all of the same things.

No matter. If you don't have a passport to someplace else, you're still stuck living in this county. In four more years, we all get to do this again. If we want at least one of the two candidates who will have any chance of winning in 2016 to represent us and not the establishment, we have work to do.

Calling Reince Priebus schoolyard names accomplishes nothing productive save to vent some steam, and you can do that just as well by yelling your favorite anti-Priebus phrase into your closet. There is no guarantee that the Party will do anything differently in 2016 than they did in 2012. There is no guarantee that they will do exactly the same thing in 2016 as they did in 2012, either.

This is nothing more than an offer to start a dialogue. As of the day before yesterday, he seemed interested. Of course I don't know what's going on inside that mind of his. My policy is, "Trust but verify. Then verify again!"

I do know that if we won't even talk to the GOP, there is no reason to expect them to view us as anything more than a lost cause. We can do better than that - and should.

If anything...anything at all, even just a follow-up conversation...comes of this, I'll let you know. We'll get to see in a few months whether this is all just talk or if there's something behind it.

Judge then.

I don't see the point, once a cheater always a cheater.

I'm just here to say I'm glad your active, thank you. As for the cheat, well don't get your hopes up.

Jesse Benton

Since when is he worth knowing? Jesse Benton is no friend of liberty.

What about Ginsburg?

Everyone's always talking about how bad Pribus is. What about Ginsburg? He's the guy who actually brought the Rules changes forward. I bet we could get a lot of Conservative support for ousting Ginsburg.

Please Explain

Can someone please explain how the leader of the RNC can help lose an election AND get re-elected? What a great strategy. We can all learn from this.

Reince was the parliamentarian

... at our Summit County Caucus Assembly ... He was apparently fair an balanced ... But I don't trust him : he's chummy with the pukes that cheated Dr.Paul ... Again.

Why so little press? Why does that other co-chairman act-up so? It seems their theatre company needs a casting call.

I wasn't there, RonHino. I

I wasn't there, RonHino. I didn't have to be. I witnessed Reince Priebus' actions at the GOP national convention and shortly after. This man has no honor. He is your average establishment man. He is a puppet and a will do anything to advance his career. Why would anyone think he has had some sort of miraculous change of heart?

I think this was about "putting on a human face"

for that assclown.

Liberty = Responsibility

From my personal experience

From my personal experience in my town and county where politics is a blood sport, they take orders from the top.

The party gets orders from the system and the party top forces it down.

They seduce, use, and spit people out.

Do what you can. But, it seems like you have to compromise a step back for a perceived and distrusting step forward.

It's how they operate.

Plausible

To those who doubt, I think it's very possible that he skims this site from time to time to get a pulse on the liberty movement from time to time...intellegence gathering.

He admitted it

and his reactions over time and the stories that came from here backed that up. Speaking of his reactions.. He fits the personality profile based on them. He's an egomaniac.. petty, elitist, weaseling, fame and power seeking punk.

He would spend his some of his free time here because he's talked about.. it doesn't matter too greatly that he's despised.

Typical political ploy. Don't

Typical political ploy. Don't believe him for a minute. The RNC is appalled because Obama has not done just what the "chairman" did, move toward the middle in rhetoric. Most politicians in their second term (and don't make a mistake, this IS a political term of office just as important as any public offices)move toward the middle in rhetoric searching for a re-election to that office or perhaps more. He is going to pretend to care what we think because it aids him, not us.
