The Real Reason Rino Republicans Hate Conventions and Love Primaries

Excerpt from below: So the Republican worker bees that set up booths in the heat and cold, that pay money at every fund raiser, that pay dues to the local Committee, that give their time at meetings, committees, fund raisers, and any other way they can help should just be pushed aside when it comes to nominating the candidate of their party for President. Because RINO’s want a primary so they can entice Democrats to come dilute the votes of the people that put in their blood, sweat and tears year after year. RINO’s want to be inclusive when it benefits them and exclusive (slating) when it benefits them. RINO’s are saying “The ‘un-invested by choice’ should have a say in who the Republicans nominate.” Do the RINO’s even listen to themselves? If the ‘un-invested by choice’ want a say in the process, pick a side, pull out your wallet and work your tail off. Then you have earned the right to have a say in the party nomination. Otherwise, learn to like who we Republicans pick and either vote or don’t vote in November. This is the REPUBLICAN nominee we are talking about. And a Convention is the only way in Virginia to make sure that only Republicans pick their nominee. Just like the slating debacle RINO’s want to push the Republican workers aside for their own perceived benefit.Tom White

 

Boy the Republican RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only) are all wee-weed up about the possibility of the party having a Convention to pick our Presidential nominee versus a Primary. And my sides hurt from laughing at the coordinated echo chamber using the same false claims and phrases ad nausium that the RINO squad has put out. The RINO Talking Points.

And before you start in with the comments admonishing my frequent and targeted use of the term RINO, let me explain. First, your pleas to stop the name calling fall on deaf ears. My hearing in this case has been dulled by your insistence that I stop calling you names while you call me a right wing extremist. And I would be happy to use the term you like to call yourself, “Moderate Republican” except that there is nothing moderate about a group of people who inexplicably think they are Republicans while supporting open borders, amnesty for illegals, the US Chamber of Commerce, more power for Obama and now a plan to rescue Obamacare should the Supreme Court rule that the law does not allow subsidies in Federal Exchanges. There are a lot more reasons, but those will suffice for now. So the truth is, you would be a left of center Democrat should you take your views to the other party. And I would say “don’t let the door hit you” on your way out.

There is nothing moderate about those views. Nor is there anything “extreme” about my views and that of other Grass Roots conservatives. In fact, we are in total alignment with the Constitution and the Republican Creed. These are a fixed point in the political spectrum. And as the Democratic Party has gone from just left of center a few decades ago with the likes of John F. Kennedy to the Marxist, Socialist extremist views they hold today – they even have a Socialist running for the Democratic Presidential nomination – some in the Republican Party have rushed to the far left in hot pursuit of the Democratic ideology. Only lite.

It is not that many of the now re-centered Conservatives didn’t drift to the left with you. We did. But the TEA Party, which initially focused on Education and learning or re-learning the Constitution and the vision on which this country was founded, reminded many of us of just how far off course we had gone. So what the RINO’s have witnessed is many people moving to the right. But what the RINO’s don’t seem to be able to understand is that this is not a new position. We are just returning to the original and proper Republican position. But RINO’s have followed the Democrats so far to the left searching for the “sweet spot” that the New York Times and WaPo promise them is where they need to be to pull in the “Moderates” vote and win elections. But the truth is, the NYT and WaPo want Democrats to win. And they understand that the faded pastel shades RINO’s wrap themselves in are far less attractive than the deep blue the real Democrats wear or the bright red real Republicans put on. RINO Candidates do not appeal to the fictitious moderates, independents, or fairies. Because on election day they are all partisans.

So all RINO candidates manage to do is lose on the larger battlefields. John McCain and Mitt Romney are perfect examples of the flawed NYT – WaPo philosophy RINO’s follow.

So as I read what the RINO-blogs and publications that are only too happy to publicize the flawed logic of the RINO establishment print, it is clear that these lemmings are coordinating their talking points and may are echoed from Bill Bolling, one of the better known delusional RINOS who used to be Lt. Governor under the tax and spend and now convicted Bob McDonnell’s RINO Administration.

Remember when the Republican’s voted to pick the Republican nominees for the state’s top 3 offices by Convention in 2009? Bob McDonnell was not challenged and Bill Bolling won the nomination for Lt. Governor. Of course Ken Cuccinelli won the AG slot and he was not McDonnell’s or Bolling’s top choice for a running mate. Because Cuccinelli is one of those Conservative Republicans who RINO’s call far right extremists. Only Moderates can win according to the Bolling-WaPo-NYT school of political thought. But when the dust settled on the general election, the Republicans swept all 3 top offices in the state. And the “far right” Cuccinelli outperformed “moderate” Bolling by nearly 20,000 votes.

So it is both hypocritical and laughable for Bill Bolling and his puppets to claim that Conventions only nominate far right extremists. And that these “extremists” can’t win. And that Conventions are exclusionary. I don’t recall Billy-boy complaining in 2009.

Yet the other day on Facebook Bolling wrote:

If the Virginia GOP opts to nominate our candidate for President in a closed party convention, as opposed to an open statewide primary, it will be a HUGE mistake. We cannot survive if we are determine to be a party of exclusion, as opposed to a party of inclusion. We need more people, with more diverse views nominating our candidates; not fewer people speaking in an echo chamber. This could be a defining moment for the Virginia GOP. Let’s not repeat the mistakes of the past.

Ok. I will admit that Bill Bolling’s nomination in 2009 by Convention was a mistake. But is this what Bolling was bee-atching about? Hardly. He was only too happy to take his win by Convention and run. He didn’t care about exclusionary conventions in 2009.

So fast forward to 2013 when the Republicans nominated Cuccinelli, Bishop Jackson and Mark Obenshain by Convention. The RINO’s love to point at the General Election results where the Democrats swept the top 3 offices as proof positive that Conventions only elect far right wing extremists. And they blame the candidates extremism for the loss. But the RINO’s spent their time in the run up to the election bashing the “extremist” candidates the Convention produced. And they never considered for a second that the pending McDonnell corruption charges which were all over the news (he was not charged until January 2014) or the McDonnell tax hike – the largest in Virginia history – played a part. Or the defection of long time political consultant and strategist Boyd Marcus (partner to Cantor ally Ray Allen) to Terry McAuliffe’s team had anything to do with it. Nor can they explain how AG candidate Obenshain managed to get almost 100,000 votes more than Cuccinelli. Obviously, the RINO’s refused to vote for Cuccinelli or Jackson, but did vote for Obenshain.

In 2013, the RINO’s spent a lot of time scaring the General Election voters on the right wing extremists running for the top offices. And that resonates in a general election.

But let’s take a look at last year, 2014. That was the year that the establishment RINO’s, who now pretend to be concerned about locking the average voter out of the process with a convention decided to lock out the potential Convention Delegates lining up to participate in the nomination Convention in Roanoke, VA to decide between Conservative Shak Hill and RINO Ed Gillespie. Now wanting to leave anything to chance, the RINO’s with Cantor’s troops successfully “slated” the more than 1,000 potential Delegates to the Convention in Virginia Beach and gave their votes to about 3 dozen RINO approved super delegates that would help ensure a Gillespie Victory. And they tried ion Henrico County a few days later, but a number of us showed up ready and prepared and let the delegates know as they streamed into the meeting hall what was being planned. And we managed to stop the slating and seat all of the Delegates.

Thankfully, the slating was overturned and all of the qualified Delegates were allowed to attend the Convention. Where the unthinkable happened. RINO Candidate Gillespie won. Of course he went on to lose against the incumbent Mark Warner by less than 1%. (Obviously the Conservative voters who supported Hill came out in droves to support the party nominee unlike the RINO’s in 2013.)

And also in 2014, who can forget the 7th Congressional district in Virginia? There was a Convention to elect the 7th District chairman. Linwood Cobb, Eric Cantor’s BFF and current Chairman of the 7th District was soundly defeated by Conservative newcomer Fred Gruber. But then there was the Cantor – Brat Primary. Dave Brat defeated RINO Cantor by a decisive margin.

So let’s recap.

  • In 2009 RINO’s McDonnell and Bolling and Conservative Cuccinelli won at a Convention.
  • In 2013 Conservatives Cuccinelli, Jackson and Obenshain won at a Convention.
  • In 2014 RINO Gillespie won at a Convention
  • In 2014 Conservative Brat beat RINO Cantor in a Primary.

Hmmm. In the last 6 years there seems to be no pattern at all. Conservatives win primaries and RINO’s win Conventions. And vice versa. So there is really not much difference.

However, in a Primary RINO’s love to scare Democrats to the Republican Primary polls by promising that of the Conservatives win, “he goin’ a put y’all back in chains” and make abortion illegal”. And while they will vote for the Democrat in November, Dems have no problem hedging their bet and trying to help the RINO’s win just in case. Because Democrats and RINO’s are politically compatible. Democrats won’t vote for a RINO in the General Election, but RINO’s somehow think there are a lot of “undecided” voters that hover between Democrat and Republican. But the RINO’s think anyone to the right of them is extreme. When it is they who are the extremists.

So the RINO’s talking points are:

  • If the Republicans have a Convention, we will be the laughing stock of the nation: Unlike the Primary that produced RINO McCain or the Primary that produced Mittens Romney. The entire Republican Party looked like a joke with these mushy candidates. But the RINO’s got the candidate they wanted nominated. And winning does not matter, right? Phwwwt.
  • Conventions will “disenfranchise” people who would like to vote. Why you might ask? It takes too much time. It costs too much. It’s hot. It is less convenient. Waaah. Waaah. These same RINO’s who had no problem disenfranchising delegates with their slating efforts now try to pretend to be concerned about disenfranchisement. They didn’t care about the time invested in the Va Beach Convention. If you don’t want to go to a convention you are not disenfranchised. You simply made a choice.
  • More voters to “cull” information. Now we start seeing what they want. Money. They get your name, address, phone number and you will soon be fending call after call begging for money to fill the RINO Register.

What the RINO’s fear most is a Rand Paul nomination followed closely by a Ted Cruz nomination. A primary gave us McCain and Romney. RINO’s to the core. Palin is the only thing that got Conservatives to the polls. What the RINO’s want is a Chris Christie, Lindsey Graham or Jeb Bush. (The first Bush gave us 8 years of Clinton. The second 8 years of Obama. And these idiots want another Bush?)

But the Bollings and the RINOblogs will be running around spreading fear of Conservatives and screaming doom and gloom if we don’t nominate another RINO “that can win”. You would think after the last two failures they would realize – bold colors. Not pastels.

In the general election, Republicans are going to vote for Republicans. Democrats will vote for Democrats. And the clueless who are not even committed enough to decide on a party are going to vote for the candidate that seems to know where they want to lead the nation. Not if it is right or wrong, just someone with a plan. And they they will go back to putting their heads in the sand again.

The nomination process in Virginia is a Party process. RINO’s want help from Democrats to nominate one of their own. Because they know they cannot win within their own party. Or they believe that at least. What about Ed Gillespie?

So the Republican worker bees that set up booths in the heat and cold, that pay money at every fund raiser, that pay dues to the local Committee, that give their time at meetings, committees, fund raisers, and any other way they can help should just be pushed aside when it comes to nominating the candidate of their party for President. Because RINO’s want a primary so they can entice Democrats to come dilute the votes of the people that put in their blood, sweat and tears year after year. RINO’s want to be inclusive when it benefits them and exclusive (slating) when it benefits them. The un-invested by choice should have a say in who the Republicans nominate. Do the RINO’s even listen to themselves. If the un-invested by choice want a say in the process, pick a side, pull out your wallet and work your tail off. Then you have earned the right to have a say in the party nomination. Otherwise, learn to like who we Republicans pick and either vote or don’t vote in November. This is the REPUBLICAN nominee we are talking about. And a Convention is the only way in Virginia to make sure that Republicans only pick their nominee. You RINO’s should have thought about being inclusive when you slated off good, hard working Republicans.

I want to cast a vote and not have to hold my nose. The only time I have been able to do that lately was with Dave Brat. All 3 times. And if you are unwilling to make time to come to a Convention to help elect the President that will effect every minute of your life for the next 4 or 8 years, then you should just stay at home. You obviously don’t care enough.

  1. Tom, if you somehow succeed in getting a Convention, I’ll be there, ready for the fight, but I am very concerned about the idea of a convention. The TEA Party’s won’t be busing people in. The Jebster will. Polling Data won’t help us at a convention. It’s not about conservatives, constitutionalists, and libertarians not caring enough to spend the money to go. I’ll go. It’s about the establishment candidate having enough money to bus in otherwise lazy shills for the Establishment that worries me.

    Tom:

    Do we have “RINO HUNTER” patches on order we can wear on our hats like the “Don’t Tread on Me” patches we all wore several years ago?

    We have quite a few RINO trophies to display on our jackets – Linwood Cobb, Eric Cantor, Ed Gillespie, Bill Janis, Bill Bolling, Ray Allen, Boyd Marcus, and Steve Martin, just to name a few.

    Nancy Russell, Hanover GOP Chairwoman, did an “about face” from her previous position of slating off conservatives from the committee last Thursday night at their monthly Hanover GOP Committee. Apparently she got the memo and new marching orders from Whitbeck to stop her purging of grassroots conservatives from the committee.

    She stated “We need to recruit new members to volunteer for 2016.”

    She is now in recruitment mode because she realizes that martini sippin’ Oligarchy crowd Dale Hargrove brought into the party last year for the developers’ interests isn’t going to lift a finger to actually Get Out The Vote for a Republican Nominee in 2016.

    Sounded like full blown panic- She has a committee of paper weights and they don’t work.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
