Super Secret Scheme to Slip in Romney: Cause Delegates aren't bound

Much hullabaloo is afoot about the fact that the plots & ploys to 'Dump Trump' are no, all over. As proof of point, The Donald has now nominated the lessor known Pence for VP. Already, Politico (who spelled Pence as Spence, in the URL) makes note that the brand ne Trump/Pence TP logo is sexually suggestive (acutally, they're more than, er, spot on - it looks like a handling, to me). Meanwhile, many pundits claims Romney's quest is a goosey over cooked.

But - could they be - all wrong?

All Delegates are Unbound

Let me explain.

In a recent, prior thread, titled " It's Official -The Hill: RNC Delegates are Unbound " - As pointed out by the Congressional insider "The Hill", Scholars Curly Haughland and Sean Parnell, in their bok "Unbound: The Conscience of a Republican Delegate", the well versed in the legal particulars, broke down the history of pledged and unpledged delegates, as far as the RNC is concerned.

According to a Rolling Stone quote on Amazon

Unbound: The Conscience of a Republican Delegate
makes a powerful case that delegates to the Republican Party convention are not bound to vote for any particular candidate based on primary and caucus results, state party rules, or even state law. Co-authors Sean Parnell and Curly Haugland document nearly 240 instances at past conventions in which delegates invoked their right to vote their conscience.

"All that matters are rules, and the RNC’s rules, according to Haugland — who has pored over them with painstaking attention to detail — offer a surprisingly large amount of leeway when it comes to how the 2,472 Republican delegates must act in Cleveland come July."

— Rolling Stone, May 11, 2016


This notion of delegates being able to vote their conscience is also corroborated by other online articles, such as The National Law Review story - titled " Not a Single Republican Delegate Is ‘Bound’ to Donald Trump "

The article states

Those who claim otherwise would evade
responsibility for his nomination.


Let’s begin with a simple proposition: As a matter of law and history, there is not a single “bound” delegate to the Republican National Convention. Not one delegate is required to vote for Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, or any other individual who “won” votes in the primary process. Each delegate will have to make his or her own choice. They — and they alone — will choose the Republican nominee.

All they have to do, to blindside The Donald, is to cajole enough people, to fail to step up and vote, for the 1st round. If Trump falls just 1 single, solitary, vote, short, of the 1237


A new round of civil, {UN}convential - war - will begin.

That's when Mitt can come in (in case no one has noticed, Mitt's not said chit, on Twit, for dayzzzz).

Just sayin.....

Romney's Run depends on RNC Rules Committee today

A new day has dawned and the pundits are foaming at the mouth, with oen, keyboard and microphones, in hand, waiting to see what the RNC Rules Committee is going to do...today.

NBC says:

Donald Trump's team will be on high alert Thursday at the wonky Republican Convention Rules Committee meeting as opponents push for changes to make it more difficult for him to win the necessary majority of delegates to claim the nomination.


What do you think...will Romney thump Trump?

If he does...the RNC Convention will be a war zone.

Bernie says: My job is to make Hillary President

Responding to George Stephanopoulos question about Bernie becoming Hillary's VP, to unify the party, Bernie Sanders stipulated;

Right now what my job is to do is to make sure Hillary Clinton is elected president, that we defeat Trump, that we come up with a set of principles and an agenda that speaks to working families.’


Any questions?

Slain DNC staffer ‘wanted to make a difference’

Source: WaPo

Family and friends are grieving the loss of a young man killed in Northwest Washington's Bloomingdale neighborhood. Police are investigating the shooting death of Seth Conrad Rich, 27, a Democratic National Committee staffer. (WUSA9)

Seth Rich made such an impression as a teenage intern in Nebraska that a U.S. Senate campaign hired him before he completed high school. A young man who dreamed politics, he headed to Capitol Hill after college.

Rich was found shot several times, at least once in the back, about 4:20 a.m., after police were alerted by sensors that detect the sound of gunfire. ShotSpotter sensors drew officers to Flagler Place and W Street, a block from a townhouse Rich moved into two years ago with several roommates.

Acting D.C. Police Capt. Anthony Haythe, head of the homicide unit, said detectives are examining several recent robberies in the area to determine whether any can be linked. There were two robberies in the city in the hour preceding the shooting, both more than one mile away. Three people were robbed at gunpoint and another person was carjacked within four days in June on Flagler Place, near where Rich was shot. Police report 20 armed holdups in Bloomingdale so far this year, compared with eight at this time in 2015.

It's Official -The Hill: RNC Delegates are Unbound

Here's the legal framework that Mitt Romney's battalion are going to utilize, to Dump Trump, so that the ( likely to be totally chaotic) Republican National Convention can nominate Willard Mitt Romney, to be the GOP general national election - candidate.

The Hill's article, from today, is titled

"All delegates are unbound"


The detailed history of the power struggles, is from 2 experts who wrote the book about the issue

Curly Haugland is a Republican National Committeeman from North Dakota and serves on the rules committees of both the Republican National Committee and the Republican National Convention.

Sean Parnell is a public policy consultant in Virginia.

They are co-authors of the book Unbound: The Conscience of a Republican Delegate.

In a nutshell, the proverbial "fix" is now "in"

And Mitt Romney's coming...

Update 2: Dump Trump Polling begins of Romney v Clinton

Preibus named a Romney gal, Enid Mickelsen, from Utah, as RNC Rules Committee Chair; and she instantly named another Mitt pal, from Massachusetts as her co-Chair.

New word is, come the RNC Rules Committee meeting, in Colorado, thus coming week…that there already are enough Committee member votes (28) to unbind delegates, for the Dump Trump movement to change the process and free up the state delegates to vote their conscience

So that Mitt Romney may be "drafted" to run.

Pollings begin
Hillary v Romney

According to a news source DU claims is not credible ( though Bill Singletary has been 'Spot On' about Mitt Romney issues)....the following is transpiring

".... the payoff comes next week in Cleveland when Romney walks away with the nomination.”

Source close to the situation say

Pollsters are already hard at work conducting polling that pits Mitt Romney against Democratic presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton, in anticipation of a Romney-Clinton general election contest, according to one source close to the situation. The polling was spurred, say sources, by credible reports that the GOP Rules Committee has changed the nominating rules to open the door for Mitt Romney to challenge GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump at next week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland.


Have your popcorn ready…folks

Romney will be in Cleveland, for RNC Convention

Source: USPolitucs News Hub

Mitt Romney will be in Cleveland for the Republican National Convention. And he’ll be there for one reason, and one reason only: To steal the GOP nomination from presumptive nominee Donald Trump. So said a Romney insider on Wednesday who has been on the money with his Mitt Romney predictions for the past year-and-a-half.

"Rule changes. That’s how Mitt’s going to do it; how the GOP is going to do it,” referring to just how Romney is going walk out of Cleveland with the GOP nomination."

Get your popcirn ready ladies and germs

Its about to get real seriously Mitt'funny

Nah...they're making a deal for Trumps exit

Priebus hand picked Romney Utah gal (Enid Mickelsen) for RNC Rules Committee Chair and she picked another Mitt-twit from Massachusets to be her co-Chair.

Add to that Romney saying his family is asking him to run

Plus articles like this (link below) .. the writings on the wall

They know Trump has no chance against Hillary; and Bain Capital's Clear Channel ( renamed iHeart) is bankrupt.

This will be the last time Blech, Ham-it-uppity and LameBlah will all be having the same 100 million plus audience.

Need much popcorn..for the show that's coming
