I’m sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight because I sure wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Senator John McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight. Granted, our honored and esteemed war hero has gone through much more than the liberal mediacan ever do to him in their efforts to harm this patriot.

TAMPA, August 29, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Sarah Palin has said a third party may emerge if the Republican Party’s leaders abandon conservative principles.
Asked if the GOP’s increasing fractiousness may lead to a new party taking its place, Palin replied, “If history is an indication it is a possibility – if the Republicans don’t remember what the planks in the platform represent.”
“Look what happened in the mid-1800’s. The Whig Party went away and the Republican Party surfaced, because the electorate got sick and tired of the party fighting for power and not doing the will of the people,” Palin said on Fox News.
Palin’s words echo those made by the founder of a conservative third party, Howard Phillips of the Constitution Party.
“The Republican Party is going to go the way of the Whigs in the 1850s,” said Phillips, who served as the first presidential candidate of what was then known as the U.S. Taxpayers Party, in his 1992 acceptance speech. “It will die the death of a double-minded man – who talks one way but lives in conflict with that which he professes to believe.”

Romney’s “RNC Power Grab”: What Really Happened

The noes clearly had it, but the party bosses gaveled the dissenters down, shutting off the microphones and ignoring cries of “Roll call! Roll call!”
Yesterday, the Republican National Committee in Tampa adopted some rules changes that shift power from the state parties and the grassroots to the RNC and the GOP presidential nominee. Former Governor John Sununu of New Hampshiretouted the new rules as providing “a strong governing framework” for the party over the next four years.
But in fact the the new rules should be very troubling and disappointing to conservative grassroots activists, because they move the national
Republican Party away from being a decentralized, bottom-up party toward becoming a centralized, top-down party.

Rush Limbaugh: I’m ‘literally going insane’ By: Kevin Robillard August 29, 2012 03:52 PM EDT
“Do you want to talk about the overall tone of the convention?” Limbaugh facetiously asked his radio show audience. “Do you want me to say, ‘My gosh, what a bunch of wimps. Don’t even have the guts to mention Obama’s name. Christie didn’t have the guts to mention his name?’ Do you want me to tell you how this bunch seems to be afraid to be critical of a party that’s destroying the country? Or do you agree with the party, ‘No, we don’t need to mention that because everybody already knows it and we’re trying to attract swing voters, and they don’t want to hear that stuff?’”

HOT: Ron Paul Left Tampa Yesterday
Ron, Carol, and one of their granddaughters left the GOP snake pit yesterday afternoon, but the State was not yet through with them. At the little airport in Clearwater, 8 TSA agents descended on them and ordered them not to board their private plane. First, the pilots, the airplane, and the passengers would have to be screened in great detail, because Romney might be nearby. After a long examination of the pilots and their credentials, the agents said they had to check the plane for explosives. One of the pilots noted that the plane, full of gas, was already a bomb. Then Carol Paul, who has a heart pacemaker, refused to be screened, and an aide started taking video of the whole rotten proceeding. At that point, the TSA backed down and let them through.

Exclusive: Christopher Monckton of Brenchley calls GOP treasonous for eligibility inaction
The U.S. Constitution was a magnificent
document. In that long, hot Philadelphia summer, your Founding Fathers thoughtfully debated the instrument of your freedom – a document that inspires all of us who no longer live in the knowledge that the only people who can impose laws or taxes upon us are those whom we have elected.
An RNC bus driver transporting the Virginia delegation to the convention seemed to have lost his way to the destination yesterday. The delegation, led by long time conservative activist Morton Blackwell, was prepared to vote against the proposed rules change. However, the delay meant the Rules
Committee meeting had adjourned prior to their arrival. Delegates remaining on board the bus were unable to participate in the proceedings.

Last night, with the help of my colleagues Tony Lee and Warner Todd Huston, we tried our best to cover the corrupt media’s worst moments during their coverage of last night’s GOPconvention. With an eye on cable, the broadcast networks, Twitter, and the Web, in real-time we documented what we witnessed and you can read it all below.
What it boiled down to, though, was exactly what you would expect from a hopelessly corrupt institution determined to drag a failed president over the finish line: Unconscionable race-baiting, cynicism, and the use of Hurricane Isaac to selectively ignore some of the conventions best moments for the GOP. For instance, CNN refused to broadcast speeches given by Republican governors in crucial swing states. You’ll also read how ABC News released a hit poll just as Ann Romney took the stage and NBC’s Brian Williams opened the night with RAPE!
The race may be neck-and-neck in the daily Presidential Tracking Poll, but voters by 20 points predict that President Obama will be reelected. Republicans are expected to keep control of the House of Representatives, but voters are evenly divided over the future of the Senate.

Drowning out shouting Ron Paul supporters is not an easy thing to do. Republican delegates voting for Mitt Romney found this out Tuesday as Paul’s contingent chanted “Point of Order” and “Let Him Speak” as they witnessed the re-writing of the GOP rules, clearing the way for the unchallenged coronation of the now-official Republican nominee for president — Mitt Romney.
The RNC’s rule change effectively disenfranchised Republicans supporting anyone other than the Establishment’s man and left 10 of Maine’s 24 delegates locked out of the process, preventing them from casting votes for Ron Paul.
Railroaded and rejected, the unseated Maine delegates walked out of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, leaving the convention in the hands of the predetermined winner and his proxies.
“It’s a disgusting, disgusting display of a hostile takeover from the top down,” said Maine delegate Ashley Ryan, according to an article in the Los Angeles Times. “It’s an embarrassment,”
she’s quoted as saying.
Maine wasn’t alone in expressing its displeasure and disgust at the RNC’s pro-Romney rule manipulation.

Shocking, but makes sense given the agenda of the GOP in 2012.
I voted Constitution Party in 2008 and will most likely do so again. Dems and Repubs are both owned and controlled by globalist banksters and push the new world order agenda with just a few minor differences. Remember it was GW Bush that gave us The Patriot Act, and post 9 11 terrorist state. I long to go back to pre 9 11 liberty, but it is lost forever!

During a roll call of states at the Republican National Convention yesterday, an attendee was caught on a hot mic praising the moment where Ron Paul’s delegate result was accidentally censored as a result of an audio failure.
As representatives of Georgia read out their delegate results, Ron Paul’s name and result was lost as a result of a microphone failure.
“Well done! Whoever controlled the microphone did a great job,” one of the RNC attendees standing nearby was caught saying as others around him snickered.

GOP Destroys Integrity of National Convention, Flagrantly Cheats Ron Paul Out of Nomination
Las Vegas Sun + NY Times Confirm: Ron Paul Got SIX State Petitions for Nomination
Video of the Nevada delegate naming the six states who nominated Ron Paul at the RNC
excerpt/more!!!!/click link below!!!!!
I am ashamed of my national party’s actions. I sat openmouthed, flabbergasted, appalled at the actions that they took to shut the liberty folks out.
Look…maybe Ron Paul had no chance to win. Romney had more delegates though some of those were seated by deception and coercion. That is not the point now. Do we, as Republicans, have so little respect for others that it is okay to cheat a 30 year Republican Congressman out of a legitimate nomination that he earned? By following the rules, no less?Is it also okay that we completely ignore the will of the elected delegates who have achieved plurality and submitted nomination papers?
Those papers were delivered to Preibus by Iowa’s Lieutenant Governor, Kim Reynolds, the Convention Secretary, over an hour before the call for nomination, the rolling roll call. She claims that it was her job to accept and deliver them, and that anything after that was the will of the Republican National Committee. Therefore, the will of the RNC was to cheat Ron Paul out of a legitimate nomination and to break their own rules.Ron Paul needed a plurality of five states to have his name submitted for nomination. He received six. Those papers were submitted in a timely
manner and ignored.
There is presently, and has been, a lotta bs going around online regarding the origin and history of “Devil Dog“…
The final rules mark the latest step in a lengthy campaign by the administration to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and oil consumption and are the highest fuel efficiency standards in U.S. history.With an eye to the looming presidential election, the White House touted the standards as a boost for middle-class consumers. “These fuel standards represent the single most important step we’ve ever taken to reduce our dependence on foreign oil,” President Obamasaid.But the Romney campaign was quick to condemn the rules as impractical and harmful. “Gov.
Romney opposes the extreme standards that President Obama has imposed, which will limit the choices available to Americanfamilies,” campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said.While automobile manufacturers welcomed the new rules, auto dealers decried them.

That’s it. You can shut down the convention right now.
It’s over. Romney’s camp just shut down all dissent, and they rigged it that way. Twitter is awash in angry tweets from people who know this was a sham. John Boehner actually wielded the gavel without a hint of a tear as he said “the ayes have it.”
They didn’t have it, and I think it was pretty clear that even if they did, this was a set-up. I have news for the GOP establishment. I am voting in November. I will vote for all the down-ballot candidates who are worthy of my support. I am not going to vote for Mitt Romney. Read more…
