What Would You Be Willing To Do If The GOP Steals The Nomination?

The Tea Party Research Team predicted this! ...but what are you willing to do about it? Let the GOP get away with silencing the voice of the people? 

Or are you willing to............?

Political parties, not voters, choose their presidential nominees, a Republican convention rules member told CNBC, a day after GOP front-runner Donald Trump rolled up more big primary victories.

“The media has created the perception that the voters choose the nomination. That’s the conflict here,” Curly Haugland, an unbound GOP delegate from North Dakota, told CNBC’s “ Squawk Box ” on Wednesday. He even questioned why primaries and caucuses are held.

Haugland is one of 112 Republican delegates who are not required to cast their support for any one candidate because their states and territories don’t hold primaries or caucuses.

Even with Trump ’s huge projected delegate haul in four state primaries Tuesday, the odds are increasing the billionaire businessman may not ultimately get the 1,237 delegates needed to claim the GOP nomination before the convention.

This could lead to a brokered convention, in which unbound delegates, like Haugland, could play a significant swing role on the first ballot to choose a nominee.

Most delegates bound by their state’s primary or caucus results are only committed on the first ballot. If subsequent ballots are needed, virtually all of the delegates can vote any way they want, said Gary Emineth, another unbound delegate from North Dakota.

“It could introduce Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, or it could be the other candidates that have already been in the race and are now out of the race [such as] Mike Huckabee [or] Rick Santorum. All those people could eventually become candidates on the floor,” Emineth said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan , who decided not to run for the White House this year, said in a CNBC interview Tuesday he won’t categorically rule out accepting the GOP nomination if a deadlocked convention were to turn to him.

Democrats experienced the last true brokered presidential convention to go beyond the first ballot in 1952. Republicans came close at their 1976 convention.

“The rules haven’t kept up,” Haugland said. “The rules are still designed to have a political party choose its nominee at a convention. That’s just the way it is. I can’t help it. Don’t hate me because I love the rules.”

Haugland said he sent a letter to each campaign alerting them to a rule change he’s proposing, which would allow any candidate who earns at least one delegate during the nominating process to submit his or her name to be nominated at this summer’s convention.

If the GOP race continues at the same pace, Trump would likely have a plurality of delegates. So far, he’s more than halfway to the 1,237 magic number.

Trump split Tuesday’s winner-take-all primaries in Florida and Ohio.

The real estate mogul dominated in Florida over Sen. Marco Rubio , who dropped out of the race after losing his home state.

But Trump lost Ohio to the state’s governor, John Kasich . Trump also won Illinois and North Carolina. He held a slim lead over Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in Missouri early Wednesday.

Emineth, also a former chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party, told “Squawk Box” in the same interview that he’s concerned about party officials pulling “some shenanigan.”

“You have groups of people who are going to try to take over the rules committee,” he warned. “[That] could totally change everything, and mess things up with the delegates. And people across the country will be very frustrated.”

“It’s important that the Republican National Committee has transparency on what they’re doing [on the rules] going into the convention and what happens in the convention,” he continued. That’s because of “all the votes that have been cast in caucuses and primaries. Don’t disenfranchise those voters. Because at the end of the day, our goal is to beat Hillary Clinton or whoever their [Democratic] nominee is in November.”

Emineth said he’s worried that frustration would discourage Americans in the general election from voting Republican.

If force is used to attempt to take citizen's guns, a shooting resistance will be the result. The politicians who allowed gun confiscation to be put into practice will become targets. There are millions of gun owning citizens who won't give up their guns. Better to go down with a fight than be on your knees in obedience to a dictator.

Look for the government to go after Ammo first... and then after 2 or 3 yrs without ammo... they will start forced confiscation.

It will be difficult to conduct armed resistance with no or very limited quantities of ammo... the government is not stupid... they will not provoke a direct confrontation until they know they can prevail... right now it is questionable.

This is not at all hard to understand but few want to believe the words of the perpetrators until their plan comes to being then it is too late and you end up with something like WWII or worse.

The bad guys back then said EXACTLY what their plans were and the public said, "Nah, that will never happen. They will never get away with it."

Then we got NAZI Germany. Merkel is taking them right back there. But I digress.

The Open Society Institute, sorry excuse for a human Soros' main creation, says right up front the goal is to ERASE all borders and have One World.

A crucially essential part of that is flooding the USA with illegals of all sorts.

But hey, who cares more than the meat cooking on their grill in the backyard.

NAZI Germany did an amazing job of distracting the population so there would be no pushback by getting everyone stoked on classical music and sports.

Guess what is happening today???

History is repeating.

Soros is pulling the same tricks here as he pulls the world over, which is why Russia put out an arrest warrant for him:

Soros is known world wide.  He takes countries down most probably what happened to Greece.  He is wanted world wide.  Wonder what the price on his head is worth?

To many think tanks thinking up ways to kill us, and take everything we own.

DeniseinAz...

It's called sedition and treason... when its purpose is to overthrow the US. The Problem is that the very individuals responsible for stopping sedition and treason are the one's running the think tanks.  I suppose that leaves it up to the People at large ... to stop them.

  I'm sure we could find someone who would "remove" the Schmuck  from the World Stage real cheap !!!! Too many people have had unhappy dealings with him and would love to have the opportunity of paying him back !!!!

Rockefeller is my arch nemesis. I see his face & my eyes glow red. Aside from the fact that he's been spending his daddy's money to destroy national sovereignty of the United States for a global government that he can control, he's the slimeball eugenicist that waged covert war on the family and I take it very personally. To say I don't like the guy is an understatement of infinite proportions.

Not if people like you and I have anything to do with this.

Amen, Mr. Badger. Amen.

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
