RNC chairman braces for unruly convention

by
July 10, 2016


Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is bracing for a chaotic convention.

Thousands of party leaders, delegates, reporters and activists are descending on Cleveland for a week of platform and rules committee hearings as Republicans prepare to nominate a candidate that has divided the GOP and been a flashpoint for controversy.

Those meetings will take place under the shadow of a traumatic week marked by the massacre of five police officers in Dallas and the deaths of two black men killed at the hands of law enforcement and subsequent protests.

In an interview with The Hill at RNC headquarters in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, just hours before he was scheduled to board a plane for Cleveland, Priebus opened up about how the convention would play out amid a backdrop of roiling anger and unease.

    Reince,
    1. As long as the Republican Party Platform has not a single item in common with that of the Demorat”s, I’m okay;
    2. Check out HR 374 signed into law by president Soetoro in March (?) 2012 for help in controlling unruly ‘protesters.’

  • Taking care of business!

    Print what you like, but it will PERFECTLY orderly compared to the Demonrats’.

  • otoman

    I CAN’T WAIT, until Priebus is out of a job. Boehner, McConnell, Ryan, McCain, and ALL THE OTHER RINO’s who have infiltrated the republican party.

    The police need to be armed with this! They won’t stick around long…

    I would not be surprised if Barack Hussein Obama had a hand in what has transpired through out the United States.
    It has been said that Obama has a part in the forming of Black Lives Matter group and the New Black Panther group that thinks they are a para military.
    I will be so pleased to see the ending of this dictatorship known as the Obama Presidency.
    This has been more violence and terrorist actions acted out in our country in the past 7+ years than in any of the other presidency’s all together.
    It is a sham and a shame the the 1st black President caused so much harm to this country.
    I did not vote for Barack Hussein Obama because I knew nothing about him but he was a neighborhood organizer.
    In my mine he was not suited to be president. He sealed his records so people couldn’t know what he is or has done.
    No person running for President should be allowed if he or she has any records sealed, any records. And this President is no different, he should of never been allowed to run with out vetting. and you can’t vet if the records of his life wee sealed like they were.
    They are hiding something bad to seal records of there life by Federal Judge. Just my opinion.

    What happens, between now and the election, will determine whether I will remain a member of this party.

  • kathy diamond

    Although I would imagine there will be trouble with protester’s. That is a job for the police to handle. My main concern, as one of ” WE THE PEOPLE” and the Fact that it was our votes that brings Trump to this Convention as OUR NOMINEE. It appalls me to realize that ” THE ELITES” don’t give a damn about WE THE PEOPLE, or the rules that says, he must win 8 state, the most votes, 1237 delegates to be the Nominee. HE DID ALL OF THE ABOVE & HONESTLY. Now, they want to change the rules. Reince Priebus said, ‘ THERE WILL BE NO RULE CHANGES” Yet, from what I hear they will be voting for a change that will probably cause Trump to lose all his Bound Delegates. This is moving the goal line in a football game 30 seconds before the end of the game in the last quarter. BULLSH#T !!!!!!!!!!!! This better not happen because if it does, what goes on outside with the protesters will be nothing compared to what will go on in AMERICA

  • Ken says

    Convention would only be unruly if the Establishment tries to hijack it.

    • MyRoseHasTHORNS

      DNC was hacked and had files-plans to cause problems at the RNC, and now with BLM protesting everywhere and there needing to be many police and security at the convention sites-there will be paid and violent protests AT the RNC.

      • Wingedgodd3ss

        I believe it….

  • DrBillLemoine

    With 22 initial presidential candidates, Republicans are clearly split over Trump winning the most delegates. But he still represents, judging by the 2012 Republican overall presidential vote tally, under 30% of Republicans. That’s a significant minority of disaffected base Republicans, Independents, Moderates and some Democrats who voted for the bellicose showman Trump.
    The fractured party is searching for relevance when nobody’s policies, rhetoric or even operating aims and accomplishments are what most Americans seek for governance. Rejection of Affordable Healthcare, support of murderous police, decreasing support of public education funding, disregard or suppression of minority civil and voter rights, economic breaks given to corporations and the rich, but not ordinary workers, denial of elevating minimum wages and equal wages for all, anti-women/minority/Latino/black laws and rhetoric–all are policies and laws AGAINST the bulk of Americans and for authoritarianism, oligarchy, fascism, dictatorship and un-democratic policies that people reject.
    Rejecting hearings for important Constitutional mandates in congress like confirmation of a Supreme Court justice, 60+ votes to dump 20 million Americans from Obamacare they need, failure to hold police accountable for obvious murders of blacks, support of private run/owned charter schools with public funding, passing new voter ID laws not needed for 200+ years of American voting that admittedly stop Democratic blacks and youths from democratic participation, suppression of worker wages for a generation by anti-union actions/laws are but a few clear examples that upset voters and make them more than ready for change that Republicans don’t want and can’t provide over many years.
    A sea change is coming and its focus is on Republicans. I simply trust that God is in charge and demonstrations or changes will be peaceful by All Americans.

    • Army Vet 4444

      The party is NOT “split” on the Delegates. The problem with the delegates is PRIEBUS! He is trying to make the delegates CHANGE their vote, telling them to ignore the people, and just vote the way HE wants them to!!!

      • DrBillLemoine

        Have you tallied the number of primary and caucus votes AGAINST Trump by 21 other candidates? Most delegates are not for Trump but fractured and scatter among ‘favorite sons’ and alternates to the bombastic showman. Priebus is, I agree, not very good at his job, but Trump is in charge. He can make or break the party at Convention or in November.

    • Wingedgodd3ss

      Funny but blacks have no problem providing ID to cash their welfare checks… How does requiring IDs for voting suppress participation???

      • DrBillLemoine

        Are you still on this tired issue? Don’t understand voter suppression for the shut-in, handicapped, poor, transport-less, undocumented black folks? Your PA legislature head does and said so on camera. Ditto NC legislators and Gov. McCrory. Only you are still ignorant.

        • Wingedgodd3ss

          There is no need to insult-I disagree with you. Somehow the non driving invalid, poor have no trouble getting their welfare money. Tell me how that happens without ID?

          • DrBillLemoine

            The same way people have identified themselves for decades, for generations, with other paperwork. Did you know Plaquemines Parish at the mouth of the Mississippi River didn’t issue birth certificates, still didn’t 10 years ago when I was there, to black people at birth? That’s the extreme but occurred elsewhere, a big problem for rural areas of the country down South. In PA about 800, 000 people were disenfranchised by photo IDs required by former Republican government? Smart but devious conservatives seeking to retain majorities while their numbers decrease from routine socioeconomic factors, not to mention disastrous policies, have figured the photo IDs are one way to reduce Democratic votes, and its unconstitutional.
            You got a lot to learn about fellow Americans.

  • Army Vet 4444

    The only “unease” Americans have right now, is with PRIEBUS himself. He has done everything AGAINST the citizens of America that can be dreamed up. MY question to the Republican party, is just WHEN is someone going to start proceedings to GET RID of Priebus?? He has CLEARLY demonstrated his ANTI-AMERICAN views, and his willingness to side step the peoples will, skipping the use of our votes all together simply because HE feels, a candidate isn’t “right” for the POTUS position.

  • Philip Allen

    I support Trump 100% He’s for the thing in the US Constitution…Freedom Of Speech, Keep and bear arm, Jobs, Improving the Economy, Stopping Isis and terrorism, Fair trade, etc. I don’t understand why some people and Republicans don’t like Trump. We have had almost 8 years of Barrack Obama and everything in this country is worse. Jobs have left the country, he allowed thousands if not millions of illegal immigrants into this country, not to mention how many criminals and terrorist have come in with them. he gone around Congress and made laws he didn’t have the right to make, he’s let thousand of prisoners out of prison early, He let terrorist out of Gitmo that have gone back and fought with there terrorist organization, he made a deal with a terrorist country and supporter of terrorism Iran and released million of dollars back to Iran which they can use to support terrorism to fight Israel and the United States, He divided this country by calling police racist and out to kill blacks. He’s let terrorist groups such as Isis flourish. He covered up Fast and Furious, He supported IRS when they targeted conservatives Now he wants to take away our guns and weapons. He passed one of the worst heathcare laws ever Obamacare. so I guess we need another Liberal Socialist Democrat in office? I am damn tired of the Democrats trying to take away my right as well as destroy the US Constitution. And yes we have a lot of Republicans we need to vote out of office. Here are just a few…Sen. Lindsey Graham, Sen John McCain, Sen Mitch McConnell, Sen. John Cornyn, Speaker Paul Ryan, etc. They all want to run as Republicans, but are really RINO”S They have given practically everything to Obama that he wants even if it’s bad for the country and then they don’t want to support the Republican nominee the people have chosen The reason they don’t support Donald Trump is because he stands for the people and want to make America Great Again while the other politicians are more concerned about their careers, and power than they are about supporting our liberties and rights. They are only concerned about themselves. We need leaders who care about the American Citizen and preserve our country not about power and how they are going to stay in office. Oh and if I forgot to mention Hillary Clinton she’s as bad as Obama if not worse, lying crooked Hillary. She has already said if she gets in office she will take away the lawful citizens guns. Maybe you are willing to give up you right and liberties, I’m Not. Me and my wife will be voting for Donald Trump and I’m Damn Proud of it. I want to keep gun rights for citizens, and support the US Constitution an all the other things Donald Trump wants to achieve. While he may not be able to accomplish everything he wants I believe America will be Great Again. Not if Hillary is elected Donald Trump in 2016.

  • Worried Vet

    I really don’t think the RNC will try to stop Trump. They need to worry about Soros sending in his thugs to cause chaos period. He will like before. He wants a NWO and will stop at nothing to achieve that. Hillary and Obama are a big part of that plan.

    • Wingedgodd3ss

      Yes-my husband works in a big city and is white-now he has to worry about when he goes to work and when he leaves and he had to bring his lunch-no going out because of blm thugs protesting.

    Americans Don’t Let The Elites/Rino’s make a decision on who will be our candidate for President…

    #NeverEverHillary…

  • rightsright

    The ignorant bunch of elitists in the Republican party that have been calling the shots along with the (used to be) Democrats that have not only allowed but facilitated the takeover of America, are ready to sell us out again! Have you noticed that people are not supporting the REPUBLICAN PARTY since you all decided to go after Donald Trump? My support is going directly to Donald Trump and to no one else unless they staunchly support Donald Trump. ENOUGH OF THIS PROTECTING YOUR SHODDY REPUTATIONS AND FINANCIAL GAINS AT THE EXPENSE OF “WE THE PEOPLE”, YES THE PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT YOU IN STYLE WHILE WE SCRIMP AND GO WITHOUT! The Obama vacations are a prime example, along with all of the money and military equipment we GIVE our ENEMIES, of just how sick this nation has become under the Communist, Marxist Administration and the go along to get along Republicans.
    I pray to the one true God that the Bikers, the pro American groups such as Oath Keepers and others will be ready to take on the Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter, Obama’s group (financed by George Soros) made up of paid agitators that will be there to cause trouble and harm to those who attend. TELL ME WHY THEY HAVE RIGHT THAT TAKE AWAY THE RIGHTS OF THOSE WHO ATTEND THE CONVENTION IN SUPPORT OF DONALD TRUMP? RYAN, YOU HAVE BETTER SUPPORT TRUMP 100 PERCENT AND NOT PANDER TO THE SICKO’S IN BOTH PARTIES OR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WILL BE DEAD!

  • James in Texas

    The RNC should have thought about this back 30 years ago when the decision was made to remake the GOP into the current “Democrat-Lite Party”! For nearly 8 years this cowardly Party has give Odumbo everything he has “stolen” from the taxpayers, but the “Insider RINO’s” have gotten richer and richer on the backs of those who trusted them! Many of them make Madame Liar almost look honest! And that’s why I dumped this Party and became just an old-fashion Conservative!

    • Wingedgodd3ss

      I know. I really love hearing about how Trump is not conservative. Hello? These are the same people that gave us McCain and Romney? They were both real conservatives right? NOT.

    • Rick Stanley

      Right on the money James in Texas. However, TRUMP 2016 is an important step to bringing back this party to the people and away from the elites. Never let them take hold again…!!!!!

        • Sharron Freitas

          You republicans can’t seem to find anything intelligent to gripe about. You haven’t accomplished anything in years worth reading. That’s why the Democrats have kept us out of wars and government shut downs.

At least that’s what needs to happen with all these ridiculous people who want to still betray the people and nominate someone other than the man who disposed of 16 other rivals and won his spot fair and square. Actually, he won it to spite the fact that it was not fair in many instances. There were some shady dealings going on here and there. There’s no other candidate who stands a chance against HRC- and to support anyone else or noone else is putting HRC in the WH.

    In another article, THIS IS ALL ABOUT KEEPING OBAMA IN OFFICE…LORETTA LYNCH IS BEHIND THIS–Remember back when Obama stated: “I may suspend elections.” We are there now.
    Hacked Messages Black Lives Matter Plan “Summer of Chaos” Martial Law
    “Such an attempted suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights voids the compact with the states and with the people.”

    ​​~meaning that Obama would not be in charge! The government would not be in charge….. as the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights is for the government…States and the Governors of their states would be in charge of their own governments and would call out their militias! It would be a civil war 2.0….
