Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Romney - Hearts and Minds

Here's the roundup of him working like heck to piss off as many people off as possible:

  • New York Times - Romney campaign ropes off reporters. Secret Service says it's not for security. When they try to get out of their little "area", a Romney worker puts her arms out and says we're not doing this, whatever that means. Read the whole article to get a sense of the crazy we'll be experiencing with this Goldman man. A sample:
Mr. Romney’s team has a traveling press secretary, Rick Gorka, but he is rarely willing or able to speak on the record. On Wednesday afternoon, in a conciliatory gesture, Mr. Romney did something unusual: he walked to the back of a campaign plane and spoke briefly with reporters.
He joked about what he had said beyond their earshot: “You should see all the things we are saying in private, though, really.” When asked if it was his decision to try to keep the press off the rope line, he replied that he was “just watching, just watching.”
  • Because the Romney campaign did not like what happened in Nevada, they're taking their toys and going home to their new and improved GOP. They're setting up a shadow Nevada Republican Party. Regular readers of this blog will see the irony in Romney setting up a shadow GOP to go along with his shadow government, controlled by the megabanks for the last 100 years. When manipulating and controlling the poor fools at the local level fails, just go around the process and make your own. With billions in funny money, you can afford it. From the Las Vegas Sun:
Fed up with an inept and self-destructive GOP apparatus in Nevada, the Republican National Committee and the Mitt Romney campaign have decided to erect a “shadow state party” in this critical swing state, sources confirmed today.
“They are still bogged down in the minutiae of whether Romney will be the presumptive nominee,” scoffed a GOP strategist familiar with the details of the restructuring. “We don’t have time for that when the Obama campaign already is in full campaign mode. We have no use for them (the state GOP).”
The lack of faith in the Republican Party here intensified with the botched February caucus, metastasized after the Ron Paul takeover in Sparks and reached its zenith with Tuesday evening’s call for RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to resign by a divided Clark County GOP.
Yeah they're not all viva la r3volution. hee, hee.

  • The Bible says if you have aught with your brother, then go to him, and you've got to admit that's what Luke Rudowski does (anybody that goes up to David Rockefeller at his house and says we're going to defeat the New World Order has my respect.) - 
Anyhow, this little video proves that Mitt is totally in bed with the banksters but lies to you with a big smile.

  • Socialist Bernie Sanders says that Obama and Mitt are no different, as they're being funded by the same people. While I don't recommend his socialist solutions, he accurately pinpoints the heart of what is wrong in this country. Six financial institutions (megabanks) have assets equaling 2/3 of US GDP. Translation: this isn't a country, its a company and Congress, the military, etc. are just middle management.

Romney's support has proven so shallow and Paul's so deep that, all over the country, at GOP meetings in which delegates are selected to represent a county at the state convention or a state at the national convention, there are too many Paulites in the room to allow pro-Romney party officials to get their favored slates pushed through without underhanded shenanigans. This is having important effects. The most immediately important of these is that, in states where delegates are bound to vote for the candidate who won the state's primary vote (often Romney), the delegates who care enough to actually participate in the process are Paul supporters, and they are selecting Paul-favoring delegates. For example, whereas of the 28 delegates that Nevada will be sending to Tampa, eight are bound to Paul and 20 are bound to Romney, 14 of Romney's 20 are really Ron Paul supporters who'd only be voting for Romney because they are "bound" to. And in Colorado, where 14 delegates are bound to Romney, and only two to Paul, what the official numbers don't say is that the 16 uncommitted are probably all Paul supporters.
For a man that's been running for president for the past 4-6 years, spending millions of bucks, you'd think he'd have more of a nationwide network. Instead, he'd just relying on the mass psychology foundation that has been laid by generations previous. That is, you have to vote for a D or R. If the media says that those are your choices, then those are your choices idiots - got it???! This seems to be working with the older folks who use FoxNews and MSNBC to keep them company all day. Some of us, however,  ain't taking no more &^$ off these people and see them for what they are - criminals who'll buy up (fill-in-the-blank: Congress, Republican/Democratic state and local parties) to get their way. The fix was in for Romney here in Tennessee before the primary season got going, our governor supporting Romney, and the TN state convention is all in for Romney, even though Santorum "won" Tennessee.

In just about every single state delegate convention where there was actual citizen participation, Romney folks have been flabbergasted by resistance to voting for their  man. Now some of you might say that its those dirty Ron Paul supporters making scenes causing all this ruckus. What is actually is, is Romney folks not following Roberts Rules and when it's brought to their attention from the floor (yes by a Ron Paul supporter) they wig out and act crazy. You see it's the Paul supporter fault for insisting on the rules, which are supposed to create order. You know I could write a blog around the subject, "everything I learned about politics, I learned in church" where I have experience with Robert's Rules and cliques who'd just assume that everything would be automatically voted their way. When you don't, things get ugly. I'm definitely seeing that same dynamic at work here.


  1. I may be wrong, eM, but I sense things are going to get better in the next ten years. The Libertarian movement is growing and the Paul movement inside the Republican Party is growing and the Tea Party movement is also growing. When these three groups become a majority, we will be able to make real changes in spite of the banksters.

    1. I hope you're right, Jim. But look at what is going on. When the bankster candidate doesn't win in the delegation process, they just turn out the lights and arrogantly declared him the winner anyway. These people have spent decades to build up their power structure, and they aren't just going to say "oh, well" and go home when they lose a vote.

      They aren't ordering up almost half a million hollowpoints for nothing. They have backup plans. Ironically, you might be safer than the rest of us down in S. A.

  2. Romney is the "Teflon Republican" (no offense to John Gotti). The Republican Party has been controlled by the liberal wing and elitist CFR for as long as I can remember. Take our Senator, Alexander, his voting record is terrible and he is a CFR member. I warned the local tea party when they first started that the Republican Party would try to co-op them and they did to an extent. I think they (may) have learned their lesson by the way the GOP has treated candidates that they support.
    Viva revolution!

    1. I actually voted against Alexander - might as well have a liberal straight up than with a R beside his name. He's part of whatever machine we have in this state. Understanding it is the first step in dismantling it. Waking up Tea Party people is a big step in the right direction.
