With the growing number of issues surrounding the upcoming Democratic Party convention, which begins September 3 in North Carolina, the question of whether the Tar Heel state was the right choice from the beginning now looms over the gathering. A state-level sexual harassment scandal involving a North Carolina Democratic Party official has been wreaking havoc in local elections which was only the beginning. More controversy ensued as North Carolinians voted to uphold traditional marriage by amending the state constitution, a move that flew in the face of President Obama’s recent stated support for gay marriage.

To continue the pile on, North Carolina is a right-to-work state which has angered many union leaders, a strong base of the Democratic Party and historical financial backers of Democratic conventions over the years. The union controversy grew so large that national Democratic Party officials planned to bus in out-of-state union workers to staff the convention in hopes of placating their union donors. Of course, that move to bus in workers angered leaders within the state since North Carolina unemployment sits above the national average at over 9%.

The list is long and continues to go on and on with numerous clouds hanging over the 2012 Democratic Convention. The Washington Times reports on some of the questions and how Democratic Party officials intend to handle it:

It seems the tide has turned in the swing-state of North Carolina. As the Democrats begin to plan for their convention, an odd question arises.

Should the 2012 Democratic National Convention even be held in North Carolina?

In past presidential elections, North Carolina has been a stronghold for Republicans, with no Democrat carrying the state since Jimmy Carter in 1976. Barack Obama broke that string of Democratic defeats in 2008, winning the state by a mere 0.3 percent, or 14,000 votes, over then-Republican nominee, John McCain.

Obama’s win in North Carolina was the second closest race of the 2008 election, with Missouri also being a nail-bitter. However, Obama’s victory in North Carolina came as a shock to many in the GOP as they counted on, once again, carrying the state.

As we look toward the 2012 election, North Carolina has become a key swing-state, up for grabs by both parties.

North Carolina Democrats have already failed one major-electoral test-run to re-carry the northern state this election cycle. In May, North Carolina voters were given the chance to vote on an amendment to the North Carolina Constitution that would define marriage as between one man and one woman.

The amendment passed overwhelmingly, with 61 percent of North Carolinians voting to ban same-sex marriage and rejecting the Democrat-led effort to kill the bill.

The bill passed just two days before President Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage. It sent a huge signal to the Obama campaign that North Carolinians won’t be too quick to support the incumbent president.

National Democrats were outraged that North Carolina banned same-sex marriage, and a petition has been circulated urging the Party to move the Democratic convention out of Charlotte, North Carolina, and into “friendlier territory.”

So far the petition has garnered over 32,000 signatures, despite the DNC’s insistence that Charlotte will be a great place to hold their convention.

I really wonder how the DNC will balance the convention coverage and avoid any incidents of gay marriage supporters possibly insulting North Carolina voters over the recently passed constitutional amendment. A bad episode could erase any perceived gains from holding the convention in this location. This will certainly be an interesting convention to watch beginning September 3, 2012.


  1. It will be as equally interesting to watch the Republican Convention between the “corrupt” GOP Establishment and the Liberty Movement with all the Ron Paul supporters; especially on the heals of the Ron Paul Festival. It should be a “Hoot”.

  2. At the end of the day, voter turnout will be so low, this is a greater fear to each candidate, than the a friendlier convention location. Both parties have enough hatred from all sides, there will be intervention, no matter where a convention is held. We have frequent rioting in our streets courtesy of “occupy”, were heading into another recession, we have a Lame Duck president who hasn’t a clue about balancing a checkbook or running a business, we are at war all over the world, our president was given a nobel peace prize, yet he has a “kill-list”, he promised change and gave us a change all right, change from bad to worse. He knew of the mess Bush left him, yet cannot seem to surround himself with the best economic business minds on earth to solve it. He has a cabinet of idiots, who have contributed to this countries demise. This country in 4 years has not looked up to anything. This president Obama gets on the TV everyday and gives speeches that simply remind us of how bad things are. His speeches have no hope or answers, no vision or plan. Pres OB says we need to leave Afganistan to save lives, yet does nothing as thousands of Syerians are butchered. Oh, the blame is also to be shared with Congress. Vote out all of those old die hards who put party before country, pride before compassion, lobbyist’s $$ before the people.
    Considering we have immensely huge problems and mostly, a public so blinded by their short term thinking, because they are all caught up in the act of being accepted by tying themselves to the “gansta lifestyle” feel good mentality, live for the moment attitudes, a public so ridden with prejudice and jealousy, they can’t even see with enough depth to vote in a common sense way to elect a better candidate for president. Nor can they stand up for what is right. The people of our society give to pet charities, treasure their pets as if they were their own children and do everything possible to transpose their lives onto pets, yet vote overwhelmingly to kill innocent babies.
    But it seems that the big issue is weather or not to have a Union run and extorted Democratic convention in or out of NC?
    Oh boy, decisions, decisions. LOL.

    • Yeah, “the more things change, the more they stay the same”?

      You failed to mention anything about the dumb people who keep voting these shysters into office. It would seem they are still thirsty for more of the same.

    • I totally agree with all you wrote & the problem is that the public is not informed from the main stay media. The Prez has them in his back pocket & they never report the TRUTH. Obama was never properly vetted & never reported on to the public. I follow politics closly but the majority of the people voting have no clue except what they get from their local news @ night…..if that.

      • Yes, but they tune in what they want to hear and tune out what they don’t. Truth has little to do with it. On they spin the truth but I don’t think they lie.

  3. That’s the point and already planned, linking Paul to Romney and the GOP convention, to lure over the young, knieve, short sighted thinking kids that follow Paul. There’s not enough Paul followers to make a difference and Paul’s radical ideology is out of the media and so has fizzled, so I wouldn’t expect too much of a “hoot”.
    I think things in this economy are so bad and not due to change, the Dems and their greedy, selfish unions can hold their precious convention at the white house and it won’t matter. On the other hand, the GOP can hold their convention at Burger King and still win the election.
    Here’s an idea for a “HOOT”.
    Vote out every Congressman over 60 and that has held a seat in the house or senate for over 5 years. Get this country out of the thinking it is an extension of a European socialist country. Reduce the debt by balancing the trade imbalance, as promised by Pres OB and never done. Reduce unemployment and get our lazy people back to work by exporting more goods, importing less. Now that’s a hoot, because it makes sense and we don’t do things that make sense. We call every fireman a hero, pay them all over 125,000 a year for driving out to a traffic accident and blocking traffic or getting a cat out of a tree. Now, thats a hoot!

    • 1. Freshmen jn congress don’t bring home the bacon.

      2. Socialism trumps liberty every time so long as you can pay for it. (What fool is going to go out and work for a check when all you have to do is apply for one)

      3. Export what, our politicians, solar panels, or how about ethanol?

      4. Fireman, I don’t know any but don’t pull them down, lift yourself up. I may need one
      some day to pull me out of a car that’s on fire. You should have used a cop writing a
      traffic ticket being considered an emergency as an example. I could drink to that.

    • Timmy —

      If you truly want the BO out, then you must support a Ron Paul win in Tampa!

      It’s called Logic.

      Here it is given to you in simple terms, that even your child-like mind can comprehend:

      After the non-stop frauds perpetrated (and continuing)on behalf of the Mitt (which have disfranchised many voters from their constitutional right to have their votes counted!) NO True Americans will ever vote for him.

      Knowing this fact, it is clear that Rmoney will never get enough votes to defeat the BO in the general election.

      Therefore, if you truly want the BO to lose, you must support Ron Paul to go against that usurper of the White House.

  4. I think the Democratic Convention is going to look like Chicago, 1968. Not only will there be abortion fights. The OCCUPY movement is planning to disrupt the convention the way anti-war protesters made a fiasco of 1968.

    We are in for one wild ride this year.

    • Yeah but they didn’t do much this year, NATO, Chicago. Last week 40 shot in Chicago and nothing going on.

      • From what I hear, OCCUPY folks are keeping their powder dry for the Dem convention–to get the most publicity.

          • Yeah. I am not a big fan of entrapment. I mean, I guess it may be necessary to infiltrate groups to see what they’re up to, but since 9/11 there have been WAY too many reports of feds putting guns and bombs into the hands of people and then arresting them for having them.

            So many times we’ve heard of some huge terrorist conspiracy, and then, when you get the details, you find that NOTHING was going on until the feds whipped ’em up.

            The worst one was that so-called plot to blow up a building in Chicago a few years ago, and then the feds had to admit that the guys had no bomb, no plan, no maps, no transportation, and all it amounted to was some stoners sitting around saying “wouldn’t it be cool if we did?”

            • Yeah but it makes a lot of chosen lawyers rich and don’t stop there John Edwards also made a lot of lawyers rich at the expense of the taxpayers. I’m sure Romney can out spend the lot of them though if he ever gets control of the “justice” dept.

            • Louisiana is just the beginning, folks.

              TWO TRUISMS:

              (1) Democrats count the votes of dead people.
              Republicans discourage and then DON’T count the votes of living people.

              (2) Democrats fall in love; Republicans fall in line.

              What does this mean?

              First, the GOP establishment will be sure to crush any dissent from here on out–with any means necessary.

              Second, despite all of this, after the convention, ideals won’t matter, and everyone will be cheering, “Romney-Romney-Romney!”

    • Cool. Bring it. We need a little disorderly conduct because the bus is going off the cliff…

  5. GOP Establishment in Louisiana Convention — “If they can’t join, beat them …up”….

    Alex Helwig, duly elected, then attacked by Shreveport Police at LAGOP State Convention


    Nice job, LA’s “Finest”, 5 of you taking down an elderly handicapped man….

    • “In another instance, State Central Committeeman and Ron Paul supporter Henry Herford Jr. of Franklin Parrish was attacked by some security officials who didn’t realize that the body had voted out the previous chairman. Mr. Herford has a prosthetic hip and according to a doctor at the scene it appears as though the prosthetic was dislocated and may require replacement. The injury occurred as he was beginning to call to order the newly re-formed convention.
      In yet another instance, Ron Paul supporter Alex Helwig, Chairman of the Rules Committee who made the motion to remove the chair, was arrested by Shreveport police and released. During his brief detainment, some of his fingers were broken and when he returned to the event he was walking with aid of a cane.”

      2nd video:


    • I’m amazed that the cops let someone shoot this. I would have expected them to mace the guy with the camera.

      • Goethe Behr — one of the cops actually by falsehood, took away a citizen’s phone as “evidence”…!

        (I spent about 3 hours trying to remove the background noise to isolate this — PAY ATTENTION TO THIS EXCHANGE!)

        Listen to the cop’s misinformation (an abuse of his limited powers) at the near end of this video (minute 5:50 till end at 6:15).

        Cop: “I need your phone as evidence…can I get your driver’s license for me, please…” — (unless a Court Ordered Subpoena is served, no officer of law is allowed to divest a person (that has not been arrested) from his property under the guise of “evidence required by the police”. Also, no cop can demand of a bystander to disclose his Identification (driver’s license in this case) FOR HIS OWN CURIOSITY (“for me”) or for any other purported reasons!)

        US Citizen replies: “My driver’s license…?”

        Cop: “Yeah…”

        US Citizen: “You’ll take my phone…?”

        Cop: “It’s evidence…correct… you were recording….”

        US Citizen: noise that sounds like(“what (or nah)…”)

        Cop: “You weren’t recording…? I still need your driver’s license”. (THE CITIZEN WAS NOT DRIVING A CAR — therefore, this Cop cannot demand his driver’s license (unbelievable abuse of power)! Also, IF-or-NOT the citizen was recording IS COMPLETELY OUT of the domain of any police force to dictate either way!)

        US Citizen: “Why…you are taking my phone away from me…”

        Cop: “It’s evidence… noise (sounds like ‘correct’)…you were recording….”

        My 2 cents:

        There is a special hell for the 5 pigs that took down an old and handicapped man — BUT this PIG, that went beyond the take-down and tried to erase the evidence by confiscating the camera phone, deserves an even worse end!


        • Surf:

          I have been concerned for some time about abuse of citizen rights regarding recording. It is actually ILLEGAL in some areas to record cops. You can be arrested for recording. That’s why I was amazed that this guy wasn’t shut down right away.

          In today’s world, ALL citizens–outside of their homes–should assume that they are being recorded, and that includes cops. Legality shouldn’t come in until a person USES the recording. I know from my business that you have to get a release if you want to USE a recording of someone for commercial purposes. But if you are not using it for a profit-making venture, a recording out in the public MAY be used without permission.

          So the laws that forbid recording of the police seems wrong on many levels.

        • Surf:

          That’s another question that I have. If the police confiscated the phone, how did the owner get a chance to publish it? Did he get it back? Obviously, it wasn’t erased.

    • Here’s a local news report–from an ABC affiliate.


      As you’ll note, this is a clear and correct report of the situation. And it supports my claim that the media are NOT biased, they’re just lazy. They report what they are told without question. In this case, there was video, and they DID report that the establishment cabal was a minority of the convention, and they stifled the majority.

      The media love to report conflict. That’s why they report the “horse race” and ignore the issues–that would require thought.

      The Ron Paul campaign should recognize that at this point, the way to get media coverage, is to stand up and be LOUD. We don’t have to be rude, but we have to PARTICIPATE–BE ACTIVE–BE VIGILANT, and we have to make sure that any fraud or abuse is made public. The media WILL report it if we have facts, because it will give them the conflict that they need to get ratings.

      • As CNN’s ratings went way down because people have polarized. Fox got the GOPs and NBC got the Democrats. People just wnt to hear and see what they want to hear and see.

        • Billy: *Correction.*

          Fox is the far-right network,

          *CNBC* is the far-left network,

          and CNN is the neutral (neutered) network
          –that nobody watches.

          • So much for he open minded voter. I still want to get a Romney supporter to tell me why him. I’d start with the military as I do believe when it comes to destroying anything we, the USA is number one for sure. Now let’s talk about experience concerning taking command of the most powerful military on the planet. Like how much time does the guy have in the chow line? Don’t think I’d like to follow even a buck private doing OJT instead of even basic training. Well maybe he had ROTC even if is was in high school. That might qualify him to take command…….something, anything……

            • Billy:

              Slick Willard called himself a “minister” to duck the draft. That’s as close as he got to military service.

              Of course, I don’t think you need military service to become president. I just get ticked off by these “chicken hawks” who did everything they could to avoid service and then are itching to invade any country on any pretext–even what they “might” do someday.

              When Rmoney talks about national defense, it reminds me of the punk kid who threatens others wildly–because his big brother will beat them up if they tell the punk off.

              Colin Powell ridiculed Willard for claiming that Russia is our most dangerous concern in the world. Really? With all the NeoCons advising him, Willard still thinks Russia is our MAIN problem??

            • I didn’t think military experience was necessary either until I found that those with the least or none at all were responsible for the most American lives lost. Wilson & FDR come to mind and Honest Abe had very little.

              Most countries feel it is very important, even North Korea. Kim Jong Un. Most analysts agree that Kim Jong-un attended Kim Il-sung University, a leading officer-training school in Pyongyang from 2002 to 2007. Just good for morale is my take. We have had some bummers though but not like Wilson or FDR.

      • Goethe — actually what it shows is that the media is stating what happened, BUT turning all around into their own DICTATED PERFIDY!

        How can you claim: “In this case, there was video, and they DID report that the establishment cabal was a minority of the convention, and they stifled the majority”? — when this ABC station at the end states that there might be 2 different Slates of Delegates to be chosen before they go to Tampa?!?!?!

        NO — Ron Paul does not need to expose them — he’s fighting the most desperate and criminal elements in our Government by himself — WE NEED to do it on our own!

        • Surf:

          First of all, can we have a show of hands? Can we ban further use of the word “perfidy”?

          Next, the report WAS spot on. They reported that the establishment was in the minority, and it’s clear from the tone, that the station saw this as an expose of that fact. Further, what would you have them say? The truth is what they reported:

          (1) Ron Paul supporters “took over” the convention. They could have used the term “disrupted.” They could have called them “illegitimate,” but didn’t. They could have said a lot of things, but stuck to the facts.

          (2) They did NOT show the establishment speaker. They focused on the cops roughing up Henry Herford. CONFLICT–remember?? That’s news. It would NOT have been “news” if the convention had gone on without dispute.

          (3) They identified Herford as a “Republican delegate.” They could have called him simply a “Ron Paul supporter,” which would have reduced his credibility. By calling him a “Republican delegate,” the report was saying that he DESERVED to be there–that he was legigimate.

          (4) Then, they went DIRECTLY to interviewing Connie Barnard.

          (5) They identified her in print as belonging to the “Majority Convention.” AND they let her speak freely.

          (6) The report then showed that the “majority convention” turned their chairs around, and while the establishment “chairman” spoke, the report ignored him, completely.

          (7) Back to Connie Barnard, identified as “vice chair,” who said the rules changes by the establishment were “not in keeping with the ideas of liberty and democracy.”

          (8) They did then interview Jeff Giles, the establishment representative, but identified him as being in “the minority.” And when he said they “tightened up the rules,” what does that mean? It means what Republicans usually refer to as “unnecessary regulation.” He claimed that the privileged, intelligent (your “Plato” people) were just controlling the masses and making sure that the primary proportion matched the delegates sent to the national convention.

          (9) But they went BACK to the Ron Paul side, pointing out that they had the majority at the state convention. AND–GET THIS–they let Connie Barnard point out that the primary was just a beauty contest, and that the more important caucuses WERE won by Paul.

          (10) And finally, you’re just plain wrong. The report did NOT say “there might be 2 different Slates of Delegates to be chosen before they go to Tampa.” What they said was, “BOTH conventions have selected delegates for the national convention” which is EXACTLY what happened. The anchor then said that the Republican National Committee of Contest” will decide WHICH sets of delegates will represent LA in TA.

          This was a very good report of what happened, and I am amazed that they ignored the establishment convention. If you were not a Ron Paul supporter, I’m sure you would think this report was unfair because it didn’t show the “primary based” convention at all.

          Face it, if you don’t give people credit when the DO a good job, how can you expect them to care? It’s a lot easier to go with the establishment, and they clearly did NOT.

  6. AP – Now the bad news – 6/2/2012
    George Soros owns a company called Skytl, which is a Portugese based vote management company. Skytl just bought the U.S. company that will be counting OUR ballots in the election in November.
    obama’s buddy Soros will have CONTROL over the tallying of our ballots.
    Email your Congressmen, and Senators, and DEMAND that this NOT be allowed!!!!

      • Billy: Yeah, paranoia is hard to beat.

        I hate to repeat a posting from another thread (because I hate to read the same comment over and over and over)–but this topic has come up on two threads, so here’s my response again:

        Allen: Relax.

        Skytl is a Spanish company, not Portuguese, and there is no evidence that Soros is involve in anyway.

        Furthermore, if the U.S. uses their machines, it won’t be for many years. Besides, the federal government doesn’t run elections, anyway, the states do. That’s why we have so many different kinds of voting equipment.

        Source: http://www.snopes.com/politics/ballot/scytl.asp

        This is an online voting system. Ironic that last week we were discussing online voting as the only way to go. . .

  7. Why is the GOP Establishment willingly and publicly committing such atrocities, that are recorded and eventually will be used as proof against them in a Court of Law?

    For a long time I couldn’t figure out their reasoning for such self-destructive acts — until it just crystallized out of the blue this morning.

    They are NO LONGER RATIONAL — but, as a wounded and cornered Beast, they are lashing out; clawing, biting, spitting and fighting to survive.

    In this mode of self-preservation, no thought of consequences is used, only the instinct for survival has kicked in!

    Should Ron Paul win, their rug will be pulled! So what difference if they also get sued eventually. (Lose-lose)

    Should they succeed in their desperate fight for survival, than all their atrocious actions will be taken care of by their own. (Win-win)

    Therefore, expect ever increasing atrocities during the upcoming Conventions — the more desperate this Animal becomes, the more vicious its attacks will be!

    What has set them off in this frenzy of rabid behavior is their FEAR that Ron Paul will get confirmed plurality in 5 states — thus guaranteeing his being seated at the Tampa Convention (and thereby sealing their end)!

    We need to fight them off on all fronts — stand our ground and call them out when caught in attempting to cheat! Don’t let them intimidate you with their lies, but instead unseat them and get all proceeding recorded (live stream is Best)!

    Ron Paul to WIN — Or America to END 2012!
    (there are no other options)

    • Surf:

      Basically, I agree, except that I don’t think it’s GOP hysteria–it’s just hubris.

      They’re messing with the process in every state. Yes, some people will take them to court. Most will just complain to THEM, as if that would ever work.

      They’ll win/lose in courts on one tiny issue, but Rmoney’s people will have already won in every uncontested area, and there are a lot of them. So they could afford to lose a few.

      They will then put out media releases that their opponents are nuts–and that is what will be reported, since they are the “establishment,” and so, by comparison, the opposition must be irresponsible. The public will then feel that Slick Willard’s staff has the white hats.

      • Goethe Behr —

        I think you missed the crucial point — that Ron Paul MUST win the 5 states needed plurality to be seated in Tampa! And then — “Bringing Down The House” won’t be just a song!

        That FEAR is what has made the GOP not just hysterical, but blatantly crooked — an animalistic response to self-preservation (disregarding all future consequences)!

        • Surf: Maybe, but I still have the impression that the GOP establishment figures they have everyone buffaloed.

          If they were scared, they would be planting stories about how “renegade” Ron Paul supporters are trying to disrupt the electoral system. The fact that we are not hearing that “evil opponent” stuff shows that they think they have nothing to worry about.

          At this point, they are trying to figure out how to co-opt Ron Paul supporters. They don’t have to appeal to Santorum’s bible-thumpers. They are shallow and out of the mainstream.

          After milking the “Veepstakes” (hey, that’s pretty good) for months, what they should do is pick RAND PAUL as the vice presidential candidate. Nobody else can attract so many supporters–so many ardent supporters.

          As for Rand, it would be a smart move, because Republicans ALWAYS give the nomination to the person who was number two. Right now, that would be Santorum, but if Rand is nominated for Veep, then he would be the top pick for 2016.

          Oh, and in the unlikely event that Slick Willard could win, Rand would be top pick for 2020. Either way, the pick would be perfect for the party AND Paul. Priceless.

          • VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO YOUR BEST TO GET RON PAUL seated at the Tampa National Convention — Needed are 5 states delegate plurality!

            LA’s GOP is trying to place their own Mittney Chosen, so is MA, and WA was lost and so forth….

            The crucial point is — that Ron Paul MUST win the 5 states needed plurality to be seated in Tampa! And then — “Bringing Down The House” won’t be just a song!

            That FEAR is what has made the GOP not just hysterical, but blatantly crooked — an animalistic response to self-preservation (disregarding all future consequences)!

            Hope it will soon be posted — that Ron Paul LOCKED UP the needed 5 states plurality! Until then, nothing so far is assured. So we MUST fight them on all fronts!

  8. Unfortunately, the GOP Establishment has went berserk in trying to save their money-ticket (Mittney) — so are acting like Cornered Animals fighting for this bone!

    I dare anyone to Honestly state they still support Rmoney — after seeing all that has transpired so far!

  9. Ron Paul is the best candidate and the only candidate, who will bring normal, proepr changes. The only hope for USA and for the rest of the world.

    • Ron Paul MUST win a 5 state delegate plurality to be seated at Tampa! This is the ONLY GOAL all of us need to concentrate at this time! (Why do you think the GOP is pulling all stops to prevent this — because, once at the RNC Convention, Ron Paul will neuter this scum! And his supporters — the Real Americans — will surround the convention in the hundreds of thousands)!

      No electronic voting at the Conventions — Delegates are elected on written ballots — this is our last chance to stop the Electronic Fraud…until the General Election…(then the BO will have the Fix…unless we do something about it)!

      This has to be IMBEDDED IN ALL OUR MINDS — Get Ron Paul seated in Tampa! Nothing else is as important as this!

      After Tampa…depending on what transpires — other options for Ron Paul may be discussed (BUT NOT NOW)!

      • On Louisiana:

        A legal push needs to be made NOW — to annul the invalid “Minority Slate” that the LA GOP wants to send (to be determined by RNC late in August which slate will be allowed in Tampa)!

        The Ron Paul majority win is the Valid slate of LA’s Delegates duly elected to go to the national Convention.

        What the LAGOP Establishment is trying to do is to DELAY a needed plurality of this State so Ron Paul can be seated in Tampa!

        STOP THEM NOW!!!

    • Gee calling RP the best candidate isn’t saying much considering the other two birds however; the statement seems factual after looking over the other two’s records.

  10. Real Americans — here is a preview of what may await you at the Tampa Convention (if you dare to be a Ron Paul supporter, and thus, by wanting Liberty and Prosperity, becoming an Enemy of the State)!

    Proud Assault Forces from 10 Nations, including our own, display how easily they can descent on the RNC Convention Center in Tampa (and take charge)! And Hitlery Clinton is loving it!


    • “The dramatic scenes took place at the Tampa Convention Center , when 14 SOF members from the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force showcased their combat skills in a half-hour demonstration,” reports the Daily Mail today. “Representing 10 different nations, they roared through the water in two inflatable boats and leaped ashore using Humvees and all-terrain vehicles.”

      The mock battle was part of Building the Global SOF Partnership conference attended by delegates from 96 countries around the world, including Canada, Australia, Brazil, Columbia, Thailand, Norway, Poland and Jordan.

      Interesting choice — from the hundreds of thousand of other places — this mock assault took place at the Tampa Conventions Center (where Ron Paul is slated to appear)!

      Coincidence — or just PLAIN WARNING (NDAA permits us NOW, the US Military, to do whatever we want to you, without redress)!

      Long Live Tyranny!

    • One would think any politician would want to distance themselves from the use of force. Kind of gives an Al Capone spin on things.

      • Billy: My guess is that the GOP will try to stop any news coverage of the practice to quell dissent. And Democrats won’t complain, because they’ll probably have their own plans to shut up the Occupy people.

        • I’ll be down on the docks come August. I’m sure somebody is going in the water LOL

        • RAND Paul a Traitor — or Family Savior?

          Declaring his endorsement of Perfidy Mitt (within 3 days after the Bilderberg Gang meeting ended).

          1) At the Bilderberg Gang’s meeting near DC — their gang-members were freely discussing in the lobby of the hotel (for all to hear) best ways to kill Ron Paul and his top supporters. (Why would they do that openly, unless they were sending a CLEAR Message — desist, or perish).

          2) Hotel staff reported (unverified as of yet) that they saw the Mitt sneaking in and attending this Gang of NWO manipulators’ meeting. If true, that he attended, ON TOP of the VERIFIED List of Top US Officials, that were party to this meeting (The Director of NSA, Senator John Kerry, The Governor of Indiana, and others) whose only goal is to Destroy the USA, and usher a One World Government instead — the message, that our OWN Top Officials are PART of this Gang, sends a CRYSTAL CLEAR Signal that they can cover up anything they want (such as an “accidental” airplane crash, or “food” poisoning)!

          3) Korean Air Lines Flight 007 in 1983 shot down by the Soviets — remember the main stream media hullabaloo about this unfortunate “mistake” where innocent civilians died???
          No-one ever mentioned, and still few know, that the Most Dangerous Person to the NWO Gang, was on board that plane — the President of the John Birch Society!

          If they have the power to alert the USSR in 1983, to shoot down this plane, and guarantee them that ALL Western Governments (including our own) will REPORT it as an “Unfortunate Mistake” (which is what transpired then) — isn’t that a clear show of might, that they can do anything they want to ANYONE (and our corrupt government will do their best to cover it up)!

          So, did Rand Paul betray his Father — or is he trying to save his life!

    • Joe:

      Yeah. It’s gonna be total chaos, like 1968. All of the Democratic factions feel that Obama let them down, and the Occupy people are planning a total crash.

  11. would be interesting to see how the convention will come through with all the issues surrounding all parties. crisis preparedness and management must be in drawing board now.
