Battle in Long Beach
is the National Committee Meeting which had been brilliantly called by Robert
Bowes, Reform Party Chairman of Maryland, and his allies -- in a pre-emptive
strike to take the offensive against the disruptive Verney Wrecking Crew which
was and is trying to destroy the Reform Party, -- now that it has been
transformed from an insincere third party “blind alley” to a constructive
force run by grassroots patriotic Americans.
gathering the signatures of a percentage of the National Committee (I think it
was 51 out of the 162, or about 30% of the Nat-Com delegates that were needed to
call the special meeting) -- a national committee meeting could be called
whether or not the leadership went along with it or not. It was called, and this
was the day.
point man for the Verney wrecking crew was the loud-mouthed Buchanan-hater Jim
Mangia. Mangia, for some reason, felt that he should “come out of the
closet” as a homosexual activist right before he kicked into his high-gear
efforts to destroy the Reform Party which he had been part of for the 8 years
since its inception in 1992.
doors were closed to the press and observers until the national committee was
completely seated, including legitimately disputed delegations. This was
probably a mistake, as it would have been instructive for all to see the absurd
Mangia antics. The closing of the doors gave the impression of secrecy and that
the Buchanan forces had something to hide, which was not the case.
inside told this reporter exactly what happened.
the Secretary of the Party, tried to take over the entire proceedings. He
filibustered for two hours. Gerry Moan, the Reform Party Chairman, let this go
– probably to make every attempt to be fair to the woefully outnumbered
the closed doors, where your reporter was standing with about 500 others, Russ
Verney, Perot’s point man, showed up with his contingent of “Perot
Systems” body guards – complete with arm patches to let everyone know for
sure who was backing the Verney Wrecking Crew.
also had an earpiece through which he was listening to the goings on inside the
meeting through sophisticated Perot-provided radio devices.
had been ousted a week or so earlier by the Texas Reform Party, so he wasn’t
even allowed in the meeting. As the Mangia harangue dragged on inside, at one
point, Verney, the former Democratic operative in the state of Connecticut,
theatrically pushed his way toward the doors through a sea of microphones and
cameras booming that he had every right to be in the room, and he would be
arrested if necessary to gain entrance. In fact, he then retired to the back of
the fray; obviously he had no intention of being arrested, but was merely
providing a sound bite for the media.
several points, a Mangia spokesman would come out of the meeting and make an
announcement to the locked-out press – and at one point Mangia came out and
screamed at the top of his lungs, making the sound bite and scene that has been
used on every newscast covering the Reform Party Convention in the Big
Newsmedia’s attempt to convey “disorder” in the Reform Party.
Mangia was making a totally childish argument. Fifty state Reform Party National
Committee delegations came to this August 8th meeting as recognized
as “legitimate” by the Reform Party and listed as such on the Reform Party
website. The “basis” of Mangia’s harangue was that the Verney wrecking
crew had made frivolous challenges against about half of these recognized
delegations. Mangia was holding – per the absurd -- that because of these last
minute frivolous challenges, all the challenged delegations were automatically
unseated, and that therefore it was impossible to get a quorum, so the meeting
could not convene.
this puerile logic, 50 Democrats (one from each state) could still file
frivolous challenges against the 50 seated Democratic Party delegations about to
meet in Los Angelus at the end of the week, -- and the Democratic Party would
never be able to hold their 2000 convention due to lack of quorum. By this
standard ANY hostile group could stop any meeting just by filing frivolous
challenges. The whole idea is too ridiculous for words.
the Big Media is still touting this silliness as a “split” in the Reform
Party and as a “serious challenge” to the Buchanan nomination – is another
example of deliberately dishonest Big Media reporting – and another piece of
evidence that the Big TV Media is the greatest enemy the American people have
after two hours, Chairman Moan asserted himself. A Verney Wrecking Crew
spokesman burst out of the doors and announced, “The secretary has declared
there is no quorum, so the meeting cannot convene.” (Of course, secretary
Mangia had no authority to make any such declaration.)
this time the Mangia mouthpiece had been followed out of the room by the
soft-spoken Robert Bowes of Maryland. Bowes immediately intoned in more
restrained fashion: “The Chairman has declared that there is a quorum, and the
meeting will go forward.”
announcement was immediately followed by a chant started by Michael Flynn of
Washington State, which grew into a thunderous crescendo: “Go, Pat, Go! –
Go, Pat, Go! – Go, Pat, Go! – Go, Pat, Go!
was over. The Mangia-Verney wrecking retreated in ignominy. They repaired to an
already rented hall (why did they rent that hall in advance if they didn’t
know they were outnumbered at the real convention?) and spent the rest of the
week “playing at” convention – a total sham and farce.
real National Committee meeting then convened, the proper national committee
members were seated, and the business of the week was underway.
