Doug Wead, a New York Times best selling author and a senior adviser for the Ron Paul presidential campaign, writes on his blog today that Alex Hayes, director of establishment Republicans in Washington State, made the claim that the Romney-Santorum-Gingrich campaigns are pushing a common slate of candidates in Washington State to block Ron Paul’s campaign from taking delegates.
“The apparent move on the part of the Romney-Santorum-Gingrich campaigns is to block citizens favoring Ron Paul from taking over the Washington State delegation to Tampa,” Wead writes.
Ron Paul has gained delegates at the expense of both Romney and Santorum. “States such as Missouri, where Senator Santorum won a meaningless beauty contest, will see a sizable Ron Paul representation, as will Minnesota, Maine, Colorado, Nevada and Iowa. In Nevada, on the first ballot, the delegates, even if Ron Paul supporters, must vote for candidates proportionately as they finished in the Nevada Statewide beauty contest.
But they can vote their conscience on the second ballot,” Doug Wead explains.
Over the weekend, a video emerged showing how establishment Republicans in Missouri connived to rob Ron Paul of delegates:
A covert camera caught Alex Hayes explaining how the establishment in Washington State plans to rig the election against Paul. Hayes said the idea of a prearranged slate will probably be adopted on the national level.
Wead says that he is not sure if Hayes and the Republican election machine will push a united Romney-Santorum-Gingrich slate and attempt to disenfranchise Paul.
“On the other hand, if Mr. Hayes is exaggerating or not telling the truth, if the Romney-Santorum-Gingrich campaigns have not agreed on a common slate, then you are getting a look at how political power brokers play backroom games to disenfranchise the majority of their own party. You are seeing how people in power, cling to the little bit of power they have and are willing to lie or cheat to keep it,” he writes.
The Republican establishment will do whatever it can get away with to cheat Ron Paul and his supporters before the convention in August. Thanks to the proliferation of cell phone video, we can get a better picture of how they are doing this and what needs to be done in the future to expose their criminal efforts to rig elections and send another global elite marionette to Washington.
Reality Check GOP committee attempts to manipulate delegate process in Missouri
Campaign forced to move event to arena as thousands turn up; rivals draw crowds of less than 100
March 15, 2012
GOP presidential contender Ron Paul continues to draw massive crowds as he campaigns across the country. Yesterday saw almost five thousand people turn out in Illinois to see the Congressman, while his rivals can only draw crowds in and below the hundreds.
Paul’s supporters will once again be asking serious questions as to where his rivals are getting their votes from, as another raucous mass of humanity provided the Congressman with a rock star welcome.
The original venue of Foellinger Auditorium, around a 1500 capacity building at The University of Illinois, had to be switched to George Huff Hall, a gymnastics and volleyball arena, following a deluge of early RSVPs.
As he introduced Paul, Illinois Republican Rep. Tim Johnson told the crowd that they were part of the single biggest turnout of Paul’s 2012 campaign to date.

On the eve before the GOP Illinois primary, one might ask:
How the hell does SGTreport have election results for a Republican primary in Illinois which has yet to take place?
We have long argued that the fix is in, but this… um… leaves us speechless.
Posted tonight – MONDAY, March 19th – on the web site of Chicago ABC News Affiliate WLS-TV are the following election results, clearly labeled as “Illinois Races, Federal Offices”. If we have this wrong, please let us know why this information exists in ANY form. Or, if we are indeed living in a banana republic, copy that. You now have our blessing to move out of the country.
The time stamped screen shot from my computer, on Monday, March 19, 2012 at 11:29 p.m. CST is posted below.
**UPDATE: Some time around 12:40 a.m. CST on Tuesday morning the web page (original link below) with the election data you see here was removed from the WLS-TV website.
Temperatures reached 80 degrees outside, yet the un-air conditioned Huff Hall was bursting with supporters who boisterously chanted “President Paul” over and over.
Paul spoke for around 45 minutes on a host of issues including The Federal Reserve, the IRS, The Patriot Act, and even the issue of students being able to choose their own mascots.
“The Patriot Act never would have been passed,” Paul urged, “if it had been called ‘Repeal the Fourth Amendment’!”
The Congressman also told the huge crowd that since the current administration passed laws by executive orders, a “constitutional president can use an executive order to repeal those laws.”
“We have a reasonably good constitution,” Paul added. “It’s just — we need to use it once in a while.”
Of course, the event was not covered by ANY mainstream media sources. As we reported yesterday, the last embedded reporter covering Ron Paul was reassigned this week.
The Washington Post, meanwhile, was covering a Newt Gingrich event not too far away in Rosemont, Illinois. Seventy, yes 70, people showed up, prompting the reporter to write “There were all the trappings of a campaign event, except one — the supporters.”
“A half-hour before the event started, only one woman was seated in the ballroom; most of the chairs remained stacked at the sides of the hall.” the report stated.
Earlier in the week, Mitt Romney drew a handful of supporters to a small park in St. Louis, complete with adventure fun slide and swings.
And these were the scenes at the weekend at Rick Santorum’s Kansas town hall meeting where 150 people showed up.
The reality is clear – Ron Paul has a dedicated mass of grassroots popular support, while the other candidates are relying solely on media bias and establishment backing to get ahead.
Watch Paul’s speech to the record breaking crowd in Illinois below:
U.S. Election Management, Brought to You by Goldman Sachs

To vote or not to vote, that is the question. Whether it is better to try and overturn a corrupt system by using the tools of that system to effect change or to completely discard what we know to be a lie, is a choice that each American must make. To that end, please look at the following videos that provide proof that election results can be stolen quite easily, especially when the people behind the system have everything to gain by doing so.
WE THE PEOPLE
The first video shows who is behind the election management system. This name should ring a bell – Goldman Sachs.
This next video shows exactly how the electronic voting system can be manipulated quite easily.
Whether or not you decide to participate in the upcoming elections, be aware that the system is rigged.
