Coverup in the Bernalillo County GOP [1]

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:09 AM

Over the past ten days the Republican Delegates to the State Pre-Primary Convention have been flooded with stories and rumors of what took place at the Bernalillo Pre-Convention Meeting on February 5th, 2014.

In order for our party to be unified in defeating Tom Udall, we are releasing all documents pertaining to the events of February 5th, with an understanding of how those events took place and how people have been pressured to change their stories to benefit the Weh campaign.

We hope that after reading these materials you will come to your own conclusion as to whether any wrongdoing occurred at the Bernalillo Pre-Convention Meeting, or the events that transpired following that night.

What Occurred On February 5th?

Three days prior to the Pre-Convention Meeting, the Bernalillo rules committee met and changed the county rules to allow “those that could not attend the convention due to weather be allowed to be voted upon as a delegate by those attending the event.”

New Mexico State Rules, which supersede any county rules declare that any rule change must occur at least 28 days prior to any county convention, and the Clements campaign was notified of this change only an hour prior to the start of the convention. (1) (2) (3)

Any challenge to this ruling was required to be made no later than one hour before the start of any county convention, which happens to be the exact time that the Clements campaign was informed of the rule change.(4)

The second, and more egregious, error made by the county committee involves the election of at large delegates.

After delegates were nominated and elected by each ward of Bernalillo county, 30 delegate positions were still available to be elected to the state convention. Past convention precedent clearly shows that these “at-large” delegates are to be elected from the pool of unelected delegate nominees remaining in person at the county convention. Instead, they were elected from a list of non-present persons provided to the meeting by Diego Espinoza, Allen Weh’s own campaign manager. (4)

Throughout this process the ballots were “secured” by none other than the treasurer for Allen Weh’s campaign, and “ballot counters” were actually Allen Weh staff members who were even wearing campaign materials. (5) (6)

What Was Done To Correct Any Wrongdoing?

By the deadline to contest the decision, February 10th, multiple protests were submitted to the chairman of the Bernalillo County Republican Party, Frank Ruvolo. (7) (21)

A decision on the issue was returned later on February, 10th. He had decided that the at-large delegates were improperly placed and would be removed from the Bernalillo slate. (8)

This decision was aided with input from Dr. Charles Tipton, and input from State Republican Chairman John Billingsley. (9) (10)

The matter seemed to be put to rest until Chairman Ruvolo suddenly reversed his decision citing “long discussions” and reseating the at-large delegates. (11)

How the Clements Campaign Responded

On February 17th, David Clements released an open letter to Allen Weh informing him of what had occurred, and sought the opportunity to work together to find an equitable solution to what happened in Bernalillo County. (12)

Later on February 17th Diego Espinoza responded to David Clements claiming that no protests had been filed and that David’s letter was a stunt. David Clements quickly responded. (12)

After this email was sent, emails were circulate from Frank Ruvolo, Dr. Charles Tipton, and Chairman John Billingsley seemingly denying that they had ever provided testimony or decisions that would call into question the events of February 5th. (13) (14)

Chairman Billingsley even emailed every delegate in response to Clements’ open letter. (15) (16)

What Happened Next?

The latest in this series of events occurred on February 21st, when the Clements campaign email account was hacked by a staff member of the Allen Weh Campaign.

Diego Espinoza, the Weh campaign manager, abused the Clements email system and used it to resend the open letter to multiple delegates. (17)

Mr. Espinoza willingly did this numerous times, and some delegates received over 8 copies of the open letter to Allen Weh.

The Clements campaign went to their Internet service provider to find out why delegates were receiving multiple copies of the open letter. They were provided with a link that identified Mr. Espinoza as having willingly forwarded the email in excess of 500 times. (18) (19) (20)

There is no question that Diego Espinoza acted with ill intent in regards to David’s open letter to Allen Weh.

What about the UNMH Shooter?

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 1:48 AM

Current mood: bitter, cynical

Subject: UNM Incident 01/04/11
Date: Tue, 04 Jan 2011 18:10:01 -0500 (EST)
From: Attention CNM Official Communication

UNM North Campus Situation: Active Shooter at UNM. There is no imminent threat at CNM properties. No further information is available at this time. Please refer to local news outlets for information on street closures.

For those not “in the know,” the phrase “Active Shooter” means someone who carries their gun(s) into a venue where people are present and starts shooting people. These “Active Shooters” usually pick places to do this where everyone else in the vicinity has been disarmed by the venue’s rules and regulations. Other examples: Virginia Tech, Ft. Hood, in that on most college campuses and military posts, the carrying of firearms or “other weapons” is forbidden to everyone except those who have official permission. CNM[1] and UNM[2] have such policies.

When was the last time you heard of one of these incidents happening at a shooting range, or at a gun show? You would think that places with lots of armed people present would have blood on the floor a foot deep. But no, those are some of the safest places I’ve been to in my life, and – get this! – everyone is polite to everyone else. Whodathunk it?

Subject: Lockdown Alert – Main Campus 01/04/11
Date: Tue, 04 Jan 2011 18:37:16 -0500 (EST)
From: Attention CNM Official Communication

CNM Main Campus is on lockdown temporarily due to UNMH suspect at-large. CNM Security personnel will notify occupants of change in status.

So CNM went on “lockdown” for an incident that happened over a mile away from CNM’s facilities?! What was this clown carrying, a Barrett M82 variant?!

Even IF he had been carrying some sort of .50-caliber rifle[3], he wouldn’t have been able to hit much of anything at CNM with it, considering that there’s all kinds of these things called buildings in the way. Also consider that even with a rifle chambered in .50 BMG, you still have to be a decent shot to hit CNM property from the UNMH location – there is, after all, about 1.5 miles between the two.

Subject: ALL CLEAR – LOCKDOWN LIFTED
Date: Tue, 04 Jan 2011 18:45:41 -0500 (EST)
From: Attention CNM Official Communication

ALL CLEAR. The CNM lockdown has been lifted. Thank you for your cooperation.

Whew! Aren’t we lucky that such an incident didn’t happen at CNM? After all, the administrators haven’t gotten their plan together to deal with such incidents yet:

CNM should consider adding School Shooter planning to their Emergency Management Plan (EMP), and consider a joint training exercise in the future with the Albuquerque Police Department (APD), APD Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) units, Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO), hospitals, and other agencies and organizations as appropriate.

The college has instituted Emergency Management Training, which when fully implemented will be mandatory training of all CNM employees. This training contains three modules, Active Shooter, Emergency Evacuation, and Disruptive Students. Additionally, the college has included a SWAT/APD Active Shooter Drill on the Two Year Safety and Security Calendar. The college is planning an Emergency Response Team Exercise conducted by APD during the Fall 2010 term, and a full drill scheduled for 2011.

I’m wondering – what will this “Active Shooter” module to the Emergency Management Training consist of, besides the admonition to lock the door and a revival of the Cold-War era “doctrine” of “duck and cover”?

Y’know, CNM could save a bundle on “expert” panels and seminars if they would simply strike the prohibition against armed students, faculty and staff[1] and let people go about their business armed. Think of the saved costs of electrical power in terms of electricity not used for PowerPoint shows.

Hell, CNM could even make a few bucks off of this, by offering courses in self-defense and firearms safety and proficiency.


NOTES

  1. From the CNM “General Safety” page:
    • Never bring firearms or other weapons on premises, including buildings, parking lots and vehicles.
    • Fascination with guns or other weapons may indicate an employee at risk for violent behavior. Carefully consider such situations and, if appropriate, report it to your supervisor.
  2. 2. Violent Behavior

    Violent behavior will not be tolerated.

    • Violent behavior includes verbal, written, physical, electronic, or non verbal threats or other behavior that would constitute a threat of violence or cause a reasonable person to be fearful.
    • Violent behavior includes physical acts against persons, University property, or property belonging to others that would constitute a threat of violence or cause a reasonable person to be fearful.
    • Violent behavior includes restraining an individual or interfering with someone’s free movement, except in patient care or child care areas when specifically authorized by departmental policy.
    • Violent behavior includes the possession or use on University property of firearms, ammunition, or weapons of any kind, unless authorized for law enforcement personnel by the University Chief of Police. This also includes brandishing any object that could reasonably be perceived as a weapon. The University’s policy on weapons is listed in Section 2.1. below. [Emphasis mine – MWB]
    • Violent behavior includes the use or possession on University property of dangerous substances or materials, explosives, or incendiary devices, unless used for University business, such as research, and specifically authorized in advance by Safety & Risk Services.

    2.1. Weapons Prohibited on University Property

    Law enforcement officers, in the performance of their authorized duties, may carry weapons on campus. ROTC students conducting required and supervised drills may carry inoperable weapons only for the purpose of those drills.

    With the foregoing exceptions, no person may use or possess a weapon on any part of campus. For the purpose of this policy, weapons include, but are not limited to, firearms, ammunition or other dangerous weapons, substances, or materials, bombs, explosives, or incendiary devices. Persons with such weapons, materials, or devices must enter campus at the closest point to the Campus Police Office and deposit all weapons or materials at that office for the duration of their stay. Dangerous substances and materials used for University business, such as research, must be authorized in advance by Safety & Risk Services.

    If any person does carry such weapons and/or materials on campus, the weapons and/or materials may be impounded by a law enforcement officer for the duration of the person’s stay on campus and the person may also be subject to appropriate disciplinary and/or criminal action.

  3. Chances are the firearms this clown carried were NOT anything chambered in .50 BMG, but something smaller and lighter, that’s easier to walk around the UNMH corridors with.

America’s Borders Are NOT Open

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , — weeklysedition @ 4:41 PM

America’s Borders Are NOT Open
by Mike Blessing [ kcufmedia@gmail.com ]

Back in April of this year, I wrote an article titled “Bring It On, Al-Qaeda!”  where I suugested that we should welcome the imaginary invasion that the Busheviks say is right around the corner if the American population stops supporting their ultra-left adventurism abroad in places like Iraq and Afghanistan.

The points of the article were that if Al-Qaeda really wanted to commit more acts of terrorism against America, they would be over here doing it, and that such a campaign would be quite easily contained by Americans exercising their natural, civil, Constitutional, human right to own and carry weapons.

Anyway, a few days later (6 April), some doofus posts a comment that “WE’RE READY FOR YOU WITH OUR OPEN BORDER!!!”

If the border (I’m assuming that the poster is talking about the southern border with Mexico?) is “wide open” as suggested, then why do people coming north without permission from Washington DC have to sneak across that imaginary line in the sand? Why do they have to risk life and limb being crammed into a semi trailer with a hundred other people in 100-plus-degree heat, without water or sufficient ventilation, to cross that line if the border was “open” as suggested? Why don’t these people just walk or ride across in the open if the border is as “open” as posited by the border-closers?

The fact remains that America’s borders are NOT open as suggested – there’s whole agencies of the federal government devoted to patrolling them, i.e. the Border Patrol, U.S. Customs, among others. Governor Richardson has called for National Guard units to be posted on that same southern border.

What puzzles me about this “issue” is that people who are otherwise staunch advocates for Liberty call for the border to be sealed, physically. I’m not even sure if that’s possible. And one thing that they forget is that a government powerful enough to keep all of the lettuce pickers out is powerful enough to keep us in.

The Fools of April

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — weeklysedition @ 5:56 PM
While searching for an innocuous little graphic of a hand grenade with a “Complaint Department” tag on the pull-pin, I found the news page from the New London (Connecticut) Police Union’s site

AVT sniffs out another big bust!

                          

Suspect arrested on parole violation. Investigation leads to
$3,800 in cash and approx 1 1/2 pounds of marijuana.

Gotta love the above picture of the two Prohibition Agents displaying the weed and cash for the camera. Look at the stupid grins on these clowns — I wonder if they’re saying under their breath, “Are we gonna PAR-TAY tonight!” ? Hey, if they don’t like anyone wondering if they’re corrupt, all they have do is stop enforcing the anti-Constitutional statutes that comprise Drug Prohibtion.

Here’s more of the same —
      

                       


How about this one? If this guy wasn’t standing in front of a marked patrol unit, I’d start to think that he might be affiliated with some skinhead or Aryan Airhead outfit.

Dirty Dog!!

matteo

How about this guy? If Officer Galante and Ike find out that police work is a dirt job!
Mat and Ike helped VIS chase down a weapons suspect in the woods behind Laurel
Dr. Both Mat and Ike are wet, muddy and forced the suspect into the dry waiting
arms of Billy Edwards. Good job … now go take a shower!

What exactly makes one a “weapons suspect,” I wonder? Where did our self-appointed Ruling Class get the idea that this asinine, anti-Constitutional, anti-human excuse for a concept would fly? Have they never read, or even heard of, the Second Amendment — the Constitutional guarantee that government won’t infringe Americans’ pre-existing right to own and carry weapons?

Hah — most of them — especially the ones whose constituencies are in the big cities — put forth explicit plans in their campaign advertising on just how they plan to enact more infringements. Here’s the thing — I’m sure that if the above cops had refused to enforce the anti-Liberty laws in question, then they would have been labeled by the lamestream snoozemedia as “lazy,” “incompetent,” or “corrupt.”

So it’s not these guys per se that are corrupt — it’s the system that keeps them doing what they’re doing that’s corrupt. As for my title (The Fools of April), well, that’s an apt descriptor for the earnest proponents of the corrupt system. They truly believe that they’re doing you and everyone else a favor by keeping these laws on the books, and creating more of these laws.
