We managed, in spite of a corrupt media, corrupt national GOP, corrupt state GOP organizations, voter ignorance, voter apathy, a massive disinfo campaign, an ongoing psy-ops campaign, and physical violence, to get Ron Paul the GOP nomination, based on the rules of four days ago.
The GOP and Democrat-controlled media had to lie, cheat, steal, and break bones to stop us.

It happens every election: mysterious fliers, robocalls, malfunctioning machines that deny blacks the right to vote. Now the Republican Party has explicitly embraced the strategy.
I can’t identify too many threads that connect every single election I’ve ever covered. But one feature has been a constant through every election I’ve seen up close, from New York City Council elections to mayor to governor to senator to president: efforts to suppress the [...]
Ron Paul‘s long-shot presidential campaign officially may have officially come to an close — again — this weekend, after he failed to secure a majority of national delegates at Nebraska’s state GOP convention.
In the end, however, the Texas Congressman may walk away having achieved the real goal of his presidential campaign: An audit of the Federal Reserve.
A GOP source tells Business Insider that the Republican Party is seriously considering including support for an audit of the [...]
With only about four hours into the Election Day voting, members of the Milwaukee Democratic Party claim that calls are going out to voters telling them if they’d signed the recall, they didn’t need to vote today.

RT News Ron Paul fever is spreading across the country, but it faces furious opposition from the Republican Party establishment as Election Day nears.
Following this week’s primary victory in Texas, Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is all but guaranteed the GOP nomination for president at the upcoming Republican National Convention, slated for later this summer in Tampa, Florida. In the meantime, however, Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) has refused to withdraw his name [...]
Barack Obama had no national primary challengers in his second nomination race in most states, including Kentucky. Who knew it would still be a tough choice for voters? Kentucky voters in the Democratic primary preferred the empty slot to the empty suit, apparently:
About two out of every five Democratic voters in Tuesday’s presidential primary in Kentucky chose “uncommitted” instead of voting for President Barack Obama.

Memo outlines strategy for influencing party platform at RNC
May 15, 2012
As the mainstream media continues to idiotically blather on about Ron Paul “quitting”, the campaign is forging ahead, today releasing a memo outlining Paul’s strategy for the GOP national convention.
“Let me be very clear,” writes chief strategist Jesse Benton in the opening lines of the memo, “Dr. Paul is NOT dropping out or suspending his campaign.”
“As Dr. Paul has previously stated, [...]
For several weeks I have been writing about Ron Paul’s upset victories at district and state GOP conventions, and about the surprising success of his delegate strategy. Now, with Paul’s delegate sweeps in Maine and Nevada, it looks like Mitt Romney and the Republican Party are finally starting to catch on to the trend.
Paul supporters swept this weekend’s state GOP conventions, picking up 21 of 24 RNC delegates in Maine and 22 out of [...]
Mitt Romney has a shot at ending the struggle for the Republican presidential primary if he wins primaries in the deeply conservative states of Mississippi and Alabama tonight
The on-again-off-again frontrunner is currently locked in a surprisingly tight three-way battle with former Pennsylvania Sen Rick Santorum and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Polls show him slightly ahead in Alabama and trailing Gingrich by two points in Mississippi.
Romney, a Harvard-educated Yankee from [...]
I’m 100% positive the Republican primaries are fixed AGAINST Ron Paul. Most of the state GOP parties have been outspoken in their opposition, marginalization and media bias against Ron Paul. Several interviews of high level GOP staffers by investigative journalists have born out several instances in where key GOP insiders have said they will do just about anything (legal or illegal) to keep Paul from winnning any significant state elections or gaining too much momentum. This was talked about allot during the Iowa Caucuses, [...]

It figures. The one time we’re on the road and unable to keep up with things on a minute-by-minute basis, a major election would be stolen outright. And there’s not a disenfranchising polling place Photo ID restriction in the world that could have done a thing to stop the thieves.
Despite the reputation The BRAD BLOG has gained in some quarters over the years, I don’t believe we have ever outright declared [...]

By now, it is clear that the Maine caucuses were a complete mess.
Evidence is mounting that Mitt Romney’s 194-vote victory over Ron Paul was prematurely announced, if not totally wrong. Washington County canceled their caucus on Saturday on account of three inches of snow (hardly a blizzard by Maine standards), and other towns that scheduled their caucuses for this week have been left out of the vote count. Now, it looks like [...]
Raleigh, N.C. – Newt Gingrich heads into South Carolina election day as the clear front runner in the state: he’s now polling at 37% to 28% for Mitt Romney, 16% for Rick Santorum, and 14% for Ron Paul. Gingrich’s lead has actually increased in the wake of his ex-wife’s controversial interview with ABC. Although one night poll results should always be interpreted with caution, he led the final night of [...]
Tulsa Grassroots RON PAUL Campaign Office
January 16, 2012
How do you get Ron Paul elected President spending just a few hours of your time? We at the Tulsa Grassroots Ron Paul Campaign Headquarters have been feverishly helping supporters of Ron Paul plug into their precincts to impact the nominating process at the grassroots level. Why? The bottom line is this. No matter what the numbers in the popular vote are for [...]
As I’m sure everyone knows, Ron Paul came in a close third last night to Romney and Santorum, with Romney besting Santorum by only 8 votes!
We are disappointed with the popular vote result, but have no regrets. One can always imagine more things that could have been done; but, overall, I think we did as much as we reasonably could. As I think I mentioned in my previous post, we [...]
Concerns about subversion grow after Republican strategist says GOP establishment will not allow Ron Paul to win
Paul Joseph Watson
Tuesday, January 3, 2012
Tonight’s final vote tally for the Iowa caucuses will take place at a secret undisclosed location, an announcement that has stoked fears of vote fraud amongst Ron Paul supporters, concerns that were heightened following a Republican insider’s claim that the GOP establishment will not allow Paul to win.
Former Democratic congressman Artur Davis, who has been a thorn in the side of Democrats in the aftermath of his loss in the 2010 Alabama gubernatorial primary, is a man without a political party.
In an interview with The Fix, Davis openly speculated about running for office as an independent or even a Republican. In both cases, he suggested his decision not to make the switch has as much to do with [...]

Threats to disrupt the Iowa Republican caucuses next week have prompted state GOP officials to move the vote tabulation to an “undisclosed location,” POLITICO has learned.
The state party has not yet told the campaigns exactly where the returns will be added up, only that it will be off-site from the Iowa GOP’s Des Moines headquarters. The 2008 caucus results were tabulated at the state party offices, which [...]
RICHMOND, Va. — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Gov. Rick Perry have failed to qualify for Virginia’s March 6 Republican primary, but former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul will be on the ballot.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Taking seriously an apparent threat from a notorious collective of computer hackers, the Iowa Republican Party is boosting the security of the electronic systems it will use in two weeks to count the first votes of the 2012 presidential campaign.
Investigators don’t know if the threat is authentic, but it has nonetheless led the state party to confront a worst-case scenario. Their fear: an Iowa caucus [...]

EXETER, N.H. (AP) — Still searching for a 2012 candidate, Republican activists from New Hampshire plan to visit Texas next week to encourage Gov. Rick Perry to run for president.

Vice President Joe Biden is on the 2012 re-election ticket, President Obama’s aides said Tuesday after a report suggested that the campaign may be willing to replace him with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The New York Post reported that Cuomo, who was elected governor in November 2010, is having a great year. Some in the state GOP even say he’d be an asset to the president.
Undocumented nannies, housekeepers or lawn caretakers in the state of Texas can perhaps breathe easier about deportation. While new legislation in the Texas House of Representatives would make it a state crime to hire undocumented workers, it excludes those employed in single-family households — in other words, them.
The bill, introduced by state GOP Rep. Debbie Riddle, is the first of its kind in the [...]

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Democratic state lawmakers in Illinois are scrambling to pass massive personal and corporate income tax hikes Tuesday to bring their state budget back from the fiscal abyss.
