Call for volunteers to overturn Mississippi vote
WND ^ | 6-28-14 | LEO HOHMANN

Posted on 06/28/2014 4:56:28 PM PDT by kingattax

Tea-party candidate Chris McDaniel is looking for volunteers to help in what is shaping up to be a monumental showdown with Mississippi’s old-line Republican Party machine.

The embattled U.S. Senate candidate sent out an email blast late Friday night asking supporters for their help in his challenge to Tuesday’s runoff election loss to six-term incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran. The runoff election, in which McDaniel lost by less than 6,800 votes, has become a microcosm of the nationwide war within the Republican Party between tea-party reformers and establishment Republicans.

“On June 3rd we won the popular vote,” McDaniel said in the email sent out to tea-party supporters about 10:15 p.m. Friday with the subject line “Help me.”

“On June 24th we won the Republican primary election,” the email read. “As you might have heard, we’re not quite done. We are in the process of trying to ensure a fair and accurate election took place on Tuesday. And we need your help.”

McDaniel asked those wanted to get involved in his fight to email their name, city, phone number and email address to mcdanielvolunteer@tynerlawfirm.com.

What’s our latest legal avenue, since Cochran’s daughter-in-law won’t let us look at the voter rolls for fraud?

Absolutely. Ladies and gentlemen, if there was ever a time to fight the establishment, it is now. They have stolen this election and we should do everything we can to make sure the actual winner, Chris McDaniel, goes to the senate.

Thad’s paid Trolls coming to post on this thread in 3...2...1

I have seen a few trolls in recent days. I thought they were weird. I hope they can get to the bottom of this, but it is hard to go up against the rats or GOPe. Did I just repeat myself there? Maybe so. I think a lot of people are so disgusted with Cochran, they will sit out the election. Which is worse, a rat or a RINO?

We have lost. By making a correction process that is long and time consuming-with no guarantees-the other side can run out the clock. I would say OFFER to let the Democrat IN WRITING PROMISE to hold the office for 2 years and rerun for the full term in 16’. That way we could stick it to the establishment. Maybe it can start a trend. Obamacare will take 2 elections to repeal. Show that we mean business.

The poll books will be made available. The delay is so the Mississippi election officials can redact SSN, DOB and age from eeach voter’s entry. I don’t know why they put that information in, in the first place, since the poll books are public documents, retained indefinitely after the elections are completed.

Plus you have the opportunity, by defeating Thad, to let the GOPe know that conservatives are not the Republican’s whores that need to just shut up and sit in the back of the bus. The purge has to start somewhere. On top of that, a GOPe majority in November, led by post-turtle Mitch, would be about as useful to the restoration of the country as an ashtray on a motorbike.

The dirty little secret is that neither the DemocRATs nor the RINOs want to dig very deeply into election fraud, because they both do it.

The TEA party doesn't, however, and has nothing to hide.

If the GOPe knows what's good for it, it will quietly tell Thad to withdraw.

Otherwise, it's hard telling how many of them might wind up behind bars.

Here’s what may be going on in Miss.I just made this pot over at hot air.Dirty politics at the highest levels.Haley Barbour in collusion with the Gov. of Mississippi.

http://mississippiconservativedaily.com/2014/05/27/thad-cochran-says-he-will-serve-full-term-others-do-not-agree/

Seems Haley Barbour just couldn’t stand to see his lobbying group go down in flames if ol’ Thad Cochran was not elected again.
trouble is no on expects Cochran,76,to actually serve out his term. So, speculation started who would be the man to replace him.
Seems it may be Congressman Greg Harper according to the link above and clip below.
Here’s a clip:

……..Shaver adds that he’s heard Rep. Gregg Harper (R-MS) is the likely choice for Cochran’s replacement, if that’s how it goes down, mid-term.

“I’ve been told that Phil Bryant likes Gregg Harper a whole lot,” Shaver said. “If you sit and look who in Mississippi is the heir apparent to Thad, again you go back and look at Roger Wicker and you say, again, there was nobody else that was lined up to do it. What I have heard is that is what the governor wants. He wants Gregg Harper in that position.”

Seems Barbour and family except for his brother who was a McDaniel supporter are perfectly willing to use the Miss. commie-dems to defeat a Tea Party candidate, McDaniel, or basically anyone who threatened his lobbying empire said to reach from dc to Miss.
Sick, sick.
Once this story gets out and it will, the war on rinos and the GOPe will intensify even more. The fat cats in the GOP may have paid a very high price to keep their pork alive in Miss.

Unquestionably and Haley Barbour is supposed to be such a rock solid Republican! He's nothing but slime. Anyone who has no qualms about using 35k dems to slander a rock solid candidate such as McDaniel is the worst of the worst and Barbour fits that title. Even Haley's brother won't support Cochran or what he's doing and is a McDaniel supporter.

What really need to take place is that the conservatives in the GOP need to work VERY HARD to get ALL PRIMARIES IN EVERY STATE OF UNION TO BE CLOSED. It was Dems voting in a Repub runoff that changed the outcome.

NO STATE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO HAVE AN OPEN PRIMARY. Also, if you register as an “Independent” you do NOT get to vote in either a Republican or Dem primary.

Thanks very much.

Without a doubt. Cochran is 76 and war weary to say the least from what I have read.(It took me 30-40 sites from three different search engines to find this one link.) If he lasts two years it would be lot.

Seems both Haley and the Miss. Governor who makes the appointment when Cochran is ready to retire have made the calls. Haley Barbour of course is behind all the slime they threw at McDaniel.

Ironically, all they have succeeded in doing,IMHO, is bumping up McDaniel's profile to the stratosphere in conservative circles. This guy could go really high in national circles when all this is over, win, lose or draw.

Great post and so true. Evidently much of the state is so backward they don't even have much of the election ballots computerized. McDaniels' staff has to go through tons of paper ballots to determine if any of the dem bozos are actually legal votes or not. this is after they are given permission if they are given permission.In some cases SS numbers have to be blacked out first further delaying the process which is all so unnecessary especially since both sides are allowed to witness what goes on.

Many counties are making it extremely difficult for McDaniels' staff to do so which should be illegal but who know what passes for legal in Mississippi.

MY guess is there is a lot of cash being passed around all over Mississippi by the Barbour mob.Too bad it can't be traced, tracked or even discovered.

Once again what is so sad is that Haley Barbour had to resort to the same tactics used by the commie dems to take down a true Tea Party Patriot.

All conservative groups who supported McDaniel are accepting the election results: FreedomWorks, Tea Party Express, Cloub for Growth, Tea Party Patriots, Ted Cruz, etc - it’s time to move on and not help the Dems defeat the GOP while waving the conservative flag.

National supporters leaving McDaniel to his own fate

http://www.clarionledger.com/story/dailyledes/2014/06/26/national-support-leaves-mcdaniel/11402881/

Article states (no quote because of copyright) that all conservative groups who supported McDaniel accepted the results of the primary.

As to who benefits just from the little bit of research I have done it appears Haley Barbour and much of his family have set up an intricate web of payola throughout the state and linking into dc with lobbyists and who knows whom else to get whatever they deem necessary for the state and profit handsomely along the way.

Here's a wiki clip on Barbour's lobbying firm BGR. This is big time and has links to everything, this is some serious stuff.

"Barbour has been described as "one of Washington's all-time mega-lobbyists."[12] He "was a wealthy K Street lobbyist for giant corporations such as RJ Reynolds, Philip Morris, Amgen, Microsoft, United Health, Southern Company, and many others."

[13] In 1991, Barbour helped found the lobbying group now known as BGR Group,[14] a Washington, D.C.-based lobbying firm, with Ed Rogers, a lawyer who formerly worked in the George H. W. Bush administration. In 1994, Lanny Griffith (also a former Bush administration appointee) joined the firm.

In 1998, Fortune magazine named Barbour Griffith & Rogers as the second-most-powerful lobbying firm in America.[15] In 2001, after the inauguration of George W. Bush, Fortune named it the most powerful.[16] The firm "is employed by several foreign countries, as well as oil and cigarette companies."[12] Its role in advocating on behalf of the tobacco industry has been particularly prominent.

[17] BGR also "lobbied on behalf of the Embassy of Mexico in 2001 to promote a bill related to Section 245(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. This provision would have provided a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants in the United States, through family connections or job skills, without a requirement that they return to their home country for the requisite 3-10 years. This is what's often referred to as 'amnesty.'"

[18] "As part of that work, Barbour's firm arranged meetings and briefings with 'Senators, members of Congress and their staffs, as well as Executive Branch Officials in the White House, National Security Council, State Department, and Immigration & Naturalization Service'. Barbour's firm charged Mexico $35,000 a month, plus expenses."[19]

As of 2010, the firm remains one of DC's top 25, but has seen revenues drop both in 2009 and in 2010.[20] Barbour continues to "collect payments from BGR through a blind trust, which was recently valued at $3.3 million."[12]" Second most powerful lobbying firm in the US--pretty much says it all.

The money is too good for the Gop-e.

That is why the Tea Party is such a threat to them.

Not the Dems. who should be Pubbie enemy #1.

No, we are because the gravy train will end for them.
