Bet you wish you were listening to this conversation!

LIVE updates from the RNC Winter Meeting in Hollywood

Thanks to those who chipped in to help send these delegates to California to fight the power grab.

From JB:

"Spent the last couple hours talking to Reince on and off about the fact the delegates from national affected by those votes have never had the chance to tell our story. There's been no forum for it and we've had to settle for other people acting as our proxies saying what we did and didn't want and often getting it wrong. Told him if he's serious about finding a way past it he should work with us to put together a commission of RNC members (half our pick half his) to hear the stories and see the details and make a recommendation to the RNC on what to do about the past and the future. Mentioned the need for something like that to help resolve situations in Maine and Alaska as well. Not holding my breath it will happen but the idea is out there and we aren't done pushing for it."

"Fairly probable but all I can do is push. The primary reason we are here is still to support the people the movement got elected to the RNC, regardless. Leave no man (or woman) behind."

"At one point he said he must have not heard us. I noted he gavelled us quiet at least 4 times."

UDPATED: Escape from LA: Help Liberty Delegates Get Home

From JB:

Some people keep asking why we should keep attending these meetings, why we should continue to fight the rules battle, why we think any Ron Paul or other liberty people should engage in the GOP at all, at least at the national level.

I keep meaning to write something extensive on this and not finding the time, but in brief:

The first and primary reason we will continue to attend these meetings is to support the people the movement elected to represent us here, and others who have tried to help us. These are our people who made commitments to do things and to abandon them to just do the best they can among this group would not just be irresponsible, it would be immoral. Many of us who are attending these have made personal commitments of our own to these people that we will either personally attend or make sure someone else personally attends every meeting of the RNC that's held while they hold the office. We will not leave our people behind.

As to the general question of if this is a place liberty can ever prosper, most of you asking this are largely failing to understand the difference between the ends and the means in the long struggle for liberty and limited, constitutional government. The party is not the ends, it is a means to the end. Just like Ron Paul standing in Congress for decades voting no on everything was not the end, it was a means to an end.

There are many, many means we pursue. This is not a situation where if we don't win on the rules, it's all for naught and we need to find something else to do. Everything we do along the way is in service to a greater goal, and as long as the people engaged see they are making progress toward that goal and don't get confused and start thinking this is the only thing worth doing, at some point it all comes together. In the case of the RNC, whether we win these current fights or not we are building our network and defending our people and putting a light on what goes on between the things people normally pay attention to. That is worth some of our time.

Fight the fight how you think is best, we'll fight the fight we think is best, and we'll help each other out wherever we can.

From Bryan Daugherty:

Today Nicole Revels, Bill Paulson and I worked on 3 different courses to bring a motion to the General Session tomorrow. Jeremy Blosser took our strongest argument and rewrote it to be as affective as possible. Unfortunately the motion will never be heard. After speaking with Morton Blackwell and others there was no way to have it brought forth without it being ruled out of order. However, that did not stop Nicole and I from handing it to Chairman Priebus at tonight's reception at Fox Studios.

We had another candid discussion regarding the plight of the grassroots. In all fairness, Reince Priebus, Mike Shields (Chief of Staff) and Demetra DeMonte have provided an extended audience to our hard criticisms. I can honestly say that regardless of what happens tomorrow at the General Session with the rule amendment recommendations, (which will need 126 votes to be adopted), that all of us here have made EVERY EFFORT POSSIBLE to address every grievance.

I hope all of you take every effort to support these unbelievably incredible activists spanning from Texas, North Carolina, Minnesota and Maine. I have always been so proud to stand side by side with all of you and your dedication continues to inspire me. (despite my snarkiness). I feel honored to consider many of you among my closest friends. Thank You!!! — with Amy Shevokas Hedtke, Jorge Landivar, Read King, Chuck Suter, Teryn Driver, Lauren Landivar, Jeffrey Larson, Ashley Ryan, Diana Orrock, Eric Brakey, AJ Spiker, Michelle Anderson, and Mark Willis

If you'd like to contribute a few dollars to help some of these people recoup some of the costs required to make these trips into the lion's den, your help would mean a lot. They can't continue to do these things without our support both morally and financially. Thanks for the support!

For Liberty,

Rob

People in this world who, the mere mention of their name, makes my blood pressure go up. Rancid Penis is one of those people.

Kudos to you all who are trying to work with him. You are stronger/better than I am. I would be hesitant to forgive him for his actions even if he were to pull me from a burning building.

Good riddance. Until people like him are the minority, I refuse to identify myself as a republican.

RNC Presence in California is news.

The RNC had written off California for years. It's good to see them making a presence. If your goal is to advance the Liberty Movement in the GOP, we must work to build coalitions with those who don't agree on every issue. Even we can't agree on every issue.

Coalitions are making progress in my county, in my AD the Central Committee is focused on fundraising and winning campaigns. While holding a meeting in LA is one thing, I hope the RNC will send money to California Candidates in close races.

Help is surely needed rebuilding the CAGOP.

To all attending, our enemy is the collectivists. Most are in the Democratic Party. We've got good Liberty folks on the RNC now. Let's hope they will be heard.

The link

The link is facebook, and I don't have facebook, and it said the content was removed.

I was at the CA Spring convention, March 1 - 3, and I'm thinking the pictures are from December CA GOP convention.. I thought that was held in Burbank last December?

Granger...

The pics are definitely from the RNC Spring Meeting in Hollywood going on right now. My good friends personally took the photos and posted them on FB yesterday. I thought my friends page was public, but I guess it's not.

Going on right now?

While I admit, I've been busy, I had no idea, not even an email this was going on. Thank you for posting the pictures. Had I known, I would have gone. Thank you for letting me know.

I just knew a pic of Reinse

I'm not defending Reinse

Just like I don't defend those who build illegaly on Palestinian land. I'm in the GOP despite Reinse, and love Israel despite those who steal, cheat, lie and murder.

Amazing and kind of disturbing how many are ready to throw down

Over Israel. They weren't even part of this original topic.

I wish we would stop spending so much time supporting /bashing Israel. There's so many other things we could talk about

Yes, we must be more

Yes, we must be more specific. For example, we should discuss Mossad's role in 9/11.

Whatever! Nothing to see

Whatever! Nothing to see here. Just mooooove along. Ignore that the US Congress is called the Little Knesset!

Don't love Israel just because its Israel.

If it's your heritage, that's fine, but we are American's and America comes first. I am Italian, I don't hold some special bond with Italy or Rome.

From a Christian perspective, many Christian denominations identify Israel as God's people. They are not God's people, Christians are.
They WERE God's people, they crucified Christ, knowing He was the Messiah. They knew what they were doing as they shouted "We have no king but Caesar."

"Neither Jew nor Gentile, bond nor free, no one comes to the Father except through Me." -Jesus Christ

They, as a people, will not be saved, until Christ's return, and they lost any bond they had with God the Father.

yep...

...even some fundamentalists, who see all the nauseating ecumenism going on, are starting to delineate between the political state of Israel, and people!

We have to use the adjective "political" to describe/probe what Israel Christians and Republicans.are.talking about....zionism is all that...a deceptive religion, created in the mold of the religion Christ's deity and truth and fulfillment of prophecy THREATENED; it is a man-made, man-centered, counterfeit of the PURE religion(belief in a Creator higher than Caesar that Thomas Jefferson even understood)!

Zionism is perpetuated by/authored by arrogant and conceited, self-congratulatory erudite scholars filled with man's wisdom and deceit; their hearts are black as charcoal, and they are of the intellectual lineage of the Scribed, Pharisees, and Saduccees Christ lambasted in Matthew 23, for leading people right into hell via exterior religiosity!!!

I stand with Israel's people, not their government

I am a Christian who has been to the holy land. The Jews are, and will always be God's chosen people, regardless how many times they turn against him. I do not support the Israeli government, or the zionist agenda. Just like I love America, but despise our government. While the Jewish people who refuse to accept Christ are not saved, they are still God's chosen people. The Bible is full of instances of God's chosen people turning against him, and they always pay the price. I do believe this is one reason the Jews were scattered throughout the world. Many orthodox Jews are actually anti-zionist and do not believe in the existence of the current state. Israel is a beautiful land, rich with the history of many different peoples and beliefs. All who wish to claim this land their home should have the freedom to do so. The Jewish people no longer have the exclusive right to the land. God took it from them a long long time ago.

But most modern Jews have

But most modern Jews have little or no genetic connection to the ancient Israelites. Latest study from Johns Hopkins confirms this.

Not to nitpick..

..I keep hearing about how beautiful Israel is, but when I look the whole country over on Googlemaps, it looks like a dried out desert covered with fist sized rocks, perfect for throwing at people you don't like. Other than the historical stuff, it's a flyover.

The desert can be quite beautiful. I imagine google maps doesn't do any region justice.

I dunno, Ira, each person is

I dunno, Ira, each person is entitled to their own beliefs. I am not sure which is worse, this new-found Israel love, or the thing I grew up with which was Christians hated Jews because "we killed Christ". Both have and had nothing to do with the reality of God in one's life.
People are all nuts anyway. Israel can defend herself, just like the Jews ALWAYS have. The US was founded to have NO (that means NONE) entangling alliances with any country and now we are entangled with MANY. This is my belief. The fact that we give money to Egypt, which was always one of the worst enemies of the Jews is ridiculous in light of all these Israel firsters. But, just because Granger and who knows who else feel differently than I on this subject, is no reason to discount all the other good they may accomplish, IMO.

I'm witchya Crickett. But

I'm witchya Crickett. But bombing and putting into concentration camps people who only want their freedom is indefensible. I don't care how many good deeds they do otherwise. And what good deeds has Granger done, other than get on some worthless GOP committee? You only get into the club if you are one of them, kind of like the Hells Angels, who I have more respect for because at least they have a code of honor that they live by. NOT so with the GOP and their sycophants!

So....

..according to you, "you only get into the club if you are one of them", then does that mean Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Justin Amash, and Thomas Massie are "one of them"?

It's the exception not the

It's the exception not the norm when a liberty candidate makes it in, this much I know. Look at how Maine was treated. Look at what happened at the State Conventions. I saw it with my own two eyes in Arizona. Growing up on the farm we would try to pen the animals in and always one or a few would escape the roundup. So you are correct in the sense that my absolute statement isn't always true, but it usually is. And FWIW, I don't stand with Rand. He's a controller!
