A critical issue to Americans has been Romney’s recent visit to Israel where he met behind closed doors with diamond merchants tied to 70% of the world’s illegal “blood diamond” trade and is said to have accepted millions in illegal campaign donations. Romney met secretly with cash bearing delegations from Russia, London’s banking community and other groups, some American citizens but most not, all violations of American law.
Even contributions given by Americans that traveled with Romney included funds collected from foreign citizens, another violation of US law.
“Mr. Prime Minister, you are trying to grossly and dangerously interfere in the US election in an unprecedented manner,” Mofaz said. “Whom do you serve and why? Why are you putting your hands deep in the American ballot boxes? You are playing a dangerous game that will endanger our children’s future.”
This morning, at 9 a.m. local time, the seven member Committee on Contests of the Republican National Committee (RNC) held a hearing regarding a challenge to the At-Large delegation from Oklahoma to next weeks Republican National Convention. The Contestants were represented by non-attorney representatives Porter Davis and Mike Stopp, with Qadoshyah Fish available as a witness. The Respondents were represented by legal counsel and had as witnesses Oklahoma GOP Chairman Matt Pinnell along with 2012 OK GOP Convention Chair Marc Nuttle.
Although there were many issues of dispute at the May 12th, 2012 Oklahoma GOP Convention, the Contestants decided to focus on just one: a Roll Call Vote. On July 26th, 2012, an official Statement of Grounds was filed with the Secretary of the Republican National Convention, Demetra DeMonte, along with notification to each of the challenged potential At-Large Delegates and At-Large Alternates. A challenge against improper procedures and the breaking of rules does not go against those who broke the rules, but against those who, through no fault of their own, may benefit from the actions of others. Over $600 was spent on postage of the small amount of funds raised for this challenge, mostly for registered letters - each of which cost $11.80.
Today I received several big envelopes and a CD addressed to NATIONAL DELEGATE CALIFORNIA.
Inside the envelopes are well written letters and reasons why I should vote for Sarah Palin.
As soon as I saw it, I thought: This information is being sent to me from Palin's grassroots, who have experience at RNCs. The message, the timing, everything is well organized and well done.
It's appealing to both Mitt Romney and Ron Paul delegates, if not others, as there are issues that are definitely not for a Mitt fan, though I have never met one, just based on what' I've read in MSM.
I never thought that as a National Delegate I would be receiving these envelopes. It's not being done on the cheap.
Borrowing Rep. Ron Paul's presidential campaign push, Mitt Romney said Monday he thinks the Federal Reserve should face an audit.

Monday is Ron Paul's 77th birthday. The retiring Texas congressman has had a long career as America's most ideologically consistent politician. Love him or hate him, he always speaks his mind, and refuses to pander to the crowd. To celebrate his birthday, here are 77 reasons why Ron Paul kicks ass.
1. He favors sound money.
2. He doesn't care what the legal driving age is.
3. He's a celebrity.
4. He crushes baseballs while wearing a retro Houston Astros uniform.
5. He's not afraid to call Rick Santorum a "fake" to his face.

TAMPA, Fla. — It didn’t take long for strains within the Republican Party to surface Monday as national delegates got down to work on a final draft of the party platform, one week before the nominating convention opens.
Ron Paul delegates are making a diligent effort to wedge the defeated presidential candidate’s libertarian ideas into the party document. Among them: curbing the power of the Federal Reserve, enhancing the constitutional rights of individuals and opposing the overseas role of U.S. military forces.

Gerald Celente on the Upcoming Seed Event and Why People Need to Think for Themselves to Avoid a Replay of the 1930sSubmitted by Peace Gold Love on Mon, 08/20/2012 - 10:33
Daily Bell: Are you concerned for your own well being?
Gerald Celente: Of course. And it makes me feel sad. It breaks my heart. I bought a 1750s building. Read the beginning of the last Trends Journal ... there's a story called "Haunted by Hitler," and how I came back from Germany in April, and I said to myself, how could the Germans, who were at the top of Western Civilization in the 1930s, let a two-bit freak destroy them? How could the Italians?
I mean, look at the Germans ... Wagner, Einstein, Dietrich, Lang, Beethoven, Bach ... the list goes on! How did the Italians let a little cartoon character like Mussolini destroy them? How did the Americans let Bush and Cheney destroy the nation, take them to war and put them under fear and control with Homeland Security? How could people believe in the presidential reality show again ... Romney or Obama?
Daily Bell: How could they?
Gerald Celente: It's the human spirit that allows people to do this. What is it about the human spirit that lets people give their lives up for others to run them? It goes back to the Seed Event. The SEED ... You're the seed. You better grow it.
Fox News has an article saying "RNC Chair Welcomes Rep. Paul & His Supporters at GOP Convention". Yet the first paragraph contradicts the articles title saying,
The head of the Republican National Committee says congressman Ron Paul and his supporters are "welcomed with open arms" at the Republican National Convention. Even so, the man who is technically still a candidate for president has no speaking role and is planning a separate event before the convention
To anyone who just reads the name of the article they would think that the RNC is being fair to Ron Paul yet the truth they cannot hide in the article.
Not fair, as usual...
“Bachmann’s unsuccessful bid for president had a clear and negative impact on her standing among voters in the new Minnesota 6 CD. She received low marks on both her job performance and personal favorability,”
Salon.com: In just three terms, Rep. Michele Bachmann has become an institution in the House, raising more money than any of her colleagues in either party and serving as the face of the insurgent Tea Party movement in Washington. With a massive war chest, a huge national following, and close allies with very big microphones, she seems unstoppable — so much so that she was at one point a front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination. But despite all that, there is a real possibility that Bachmann could lose her reelection bid this November.
