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?

Maybe we should ask him to chair a vote on it?

What do you think Reince, do the Ayes have it?

Really? Great

Hey Reince, fuck you. Your treasonous actions at the RNC will never be forgotten.

How

Did that get past the wordy dird filter?

Good job, Johannes :-)

Some one once said if you got nothing nice to day don't say it.

What I got right here is a case of too many bad things to day all at once. They are all getting jammed up.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

Good saying.

I was almost going to post the same thing. But then I got to thinking.

It is always wise to do some thinking before posting.

priebus, mcconnel, boehner and the rest of them can go fuck themselves. They are not honor. They are not trust. They are not conservatives. They are not Liberty. They sure as hell are not for me, and this Republic.

He'll probably enjoy this post.

Maybe most RNC DailyPaul readers visit here to read about themselves?

Maybe their views will change in the process.

Hopefully they won't concentrate on the purely emotional responses.

Maybe I shouldn't end this comment on that note.

Thank you...

this is politics, this is strategy. I'm learning this directly on the level of local politics being on an executive board. Once I got to mingle with my fellow board members who I am often in opposition with when it comes to the issues, they stopped viewing me as the enemy, someone to be scared of...but instead, someone who is decent & principled. Now they aren't as quick to knee jerk against anything I propose, there is more mutual respect. Good work, as long as you keep your eyes wide open.

Y'alls perception is clouded by lack of information...

What do you NOT understand.

You cannot reason with swine, you must hit them on the nose with a stick.

Read that twice and let it sink in.

What many seem to be missing is that....

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

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

There's a big difference.

I'm going to slay your strawmen and move on.

The grassroots GOPers are not the chairman of the RNC nor are they elected politicians.

I completely agree with you working with GOPers, getting on and working with district and county exec boards, state central committees, etc.

When you are dealing with state chairmen, RNC exec officers, and politicans, they need to be CRYSTAL CLEAR up front ,that if they dont do EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT their career is over.

If that's not clear up front, no matter how friendly you think they are, they view you as a chump. If you cannot understand this or learn this then you ARE a chump.

You have slayed nothing...

And you resort to divert and deflect ad hominem attacks in 3 of 3 comments in this thread: here, here, and here.

And thanks for your offer to de-pussify me and my friends, but again, your ad hominem attacks seem to divert from promoting liberty, and instead perpetuate internal conflict within the DP community.

What is your purpose here at the DP FBI Exposure?

I'm not a chump, not viewed as a chump, nor are my friends who continue to work through ALL avenues within the GOP chumps, and what is gained (for our cause of liberty) by you insinuating so because we choose to try to work with those who have clearly harmed us.

Nothing. Nothing is gained from you, alleged FBI_Exposer, insinuating that liberty activists who choose to work with Party leadership are chumps for doing so.

Please explain what strawman argument I am putting up to knock down with ease...how am I misrepresenting your argument?

I never said the grassroots GOPers were the chairmen nor elected politicians (though there are grassroots [and friendly] GOPers in leadership, committees, and elected positions in Texas, so I don't know why you try to say there are not.). Perhaps you did not know that the grassroots in Texas is a lot different than the grassroots wherever you're from...we've actually made substantial gains within the Party.

Why assume that we're NOT crystal clear with our people that if they don't do what we want that we will work to replace them? We are. We do tell them that we will work to replace them just as we did to help them. The problem is that it's not that easy. We're making grounds, but we're no where near the majority...even in Texas. And it's because we DO work within the party in Texas. How many times do I have to keep saying in Texas.

You do realize the State Chairmen of the GOP in Texas, Mr. Steve Munisteri, is extremely friendly to us liberty folks, AND is one of Ron Paul's old lawyers, AND this same group of Texas Liberty delegates helped get Steve elected chairmen in 2010?!

Sounds like you're making some progress in Texas.

That's fantastic.

But, yes, if you believe you can reason with Priebus, you're mistaken and he's got you wrapped around his finger.

If

If, there was a glimmering light at the end. If, he wanted to work with us, and not against us. If, he had our best interest in mind.

There is no if.

My perception is not clouded. Grrrr.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

It's called "charisma".

Salesmen often have such talents. Politicians usually do, and not just the figures out front. "Political operatives" often have it, in spades.

Susceptibility to it is one of the downsides of having your software running on a primate for hardware.

Occultists consider it to be a form of black magic: Controlling the minds of others, appearing to be a friend to enemies, getting them to make decisions and engage in behaviors that sacrifice their own interests in favor of the charismatic's and expend their own resources advancing his cause.

Being a psychopath helps pull this off. They can lie without being stressed, so they appear honest. They seem to be helping you achieve mutual goals when they're in fact playing a zero-sum (or negative-sum) game, sabotaging you to promote their own interests. They can harm others without any inhibition because they don't empathize with their victims' pain or feel any guilt for what they've done. Like a casino operator, they get fat on the self-destructive behavior of others, while reveling in it.

Their victims' antics and eventual suffering is just a matter of curiosity and interest to them. Think of a two year old, playing with ants. Laying or breaking trails to see what they'll do. Kicking over their hills. Applying a magnifying glass on a sunny day while watching the shriveling and trying to make a popping sound.

You're the ant.

Your little story disgusts me.

Tell Reince to go fuck himself.

One more thing.. The only olive branch he'll get from me will be the one shoved up his stank RNC ass.

half the GOP, and most rinos read the DP at different times throughout the week.
They know what sewer tube their being flushed down- dont kid yourselves.
They also know they will never be able to work in politics again- thanks to the internet.

The tea party is the best kept secret in america and everyone except the libs know it.
tea parties arent on the internet, we're UP in rinos faces.

Eitherway, does my heart good to know reince and the rinos will OWN whats coming/has come, for the GOP.

hes a con artist actor... thats his job to sell you a story and do the opposite

Their motto is "Dont Tread On Me"...

What a disgusting track record

He has no business in a leadership role. You want your country back? Entertain no second thoughts. People like him have got to go. He would remove you without hesitation if you were RNC chair, cheating, lying, and stealing to do it. He has no honor. Show no quarter.

You need the C4L training.

Because he masterfully wrapped you right around his finger.

Let me assure you, all you heard were oinks from a swine. For whatever reason, you got enchanted by them.

You need the straight scoop. You need the formal C4L training which will disabuse you of your p*ssyness and help you to see straight and deal with people like Rience or other politicians.
